100 years of

Pompano

Beach


By Mike d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Donna Torrey, owner of Garden
Gate, 2251 N. Federal Hwy., hopes
Pompano Beach will be the next city
to join a short list of Broward County
municipalities, Wilton Manors, Coco-
nut Creek and Plantation to become
certified as official Wildlife Habitats
by the National Wildlife Federation,
or NWF. Pompano Beach needs 150
more homes to be individually certi-
fied [150 have already completed the
process].
Torrey estimates Pompano Beach
will be certified by the end of next
year.
"It's really all about educating
people. Yes, we want it to be beauti-
ful, but also sustainable. It's not a
race," she said.
Pompano Proud, an organization
dedicated to beautifying the city, is
helping Torrey.
"It's a wonderful project. We were
happy to have our yard certified. It's
great looking out at the butterflies
and birds that come and bring nature
to your yard," said Rick McKenzie,
Pompano Beach resident.
Habitat certification will be a
featured part of A Century of Plants
and People in Pompano on June 21 at
Founders Park from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
At 10 a.m. discussions on Pompano's
agricultural history and creating
sustainable landscaping will be held at
the Hood Center, 217 NE 4 Ave. Dr.
John Pipoly will be the guest speaker.
Prize drawings, refreshments, music,
and activities for kids will be avail-
able.

Ethics

Commission

drops charges

against McIntee,

Silverstone

By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
The State of Florida Commission
on Ethics has dropped charges filed
against Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Vice
Mayor Jerry Mclntee and Commis-
sioner Jim Silverstone over possible
conflict of interest for their actions as
members of both the Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea Town Commission and the
Volunteer Fire Department, or VFD.
Mark Brown, a town resident and
executive editor of a local newspaper,
filed six charges against McIntee and
four against Silverstone.
Mclntee and Silverstone appeared
before the Commission on Ethics in
Tallahassee June 6 to respond to the
complaints.
Silverstone faced four charges of
conflict of interest for his role as a
town commission member and as
chief of the VFD.
The Ethics Commission ruled that
in two of four cases, probable cause
existed for an investigation, but there
was no intent of any wrongdoing.
Silverstone said this week the com-
mission took no action on the charges,
and no fines or penalties were issued.
On the other two charges, the com-
mission decided there was no cause
to go forward. One involved the VFD
Pension Fund and the other the VFD's
filing a lawsuit against the town.
Six charges were initially filed
against Mclntee. The commission
ruled that three charges had grounds

LBTS spends $1.77 million for safety complex

Former motel to be future home of town fire volunteers, police


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in Lauderale-By-
The-Sea agreed to spend $1.776
million to purchase a motel just north
of town hall for a new public safety
complex.
They made the decision with little
discussion as they extended their
meeting past 11 p.m. May 26. The,
vote was 4 to 1 with only Mayor Rose-
ann Minnet dissenting.


Town Manager Esther Colon said
the town had obtained two apprais-
als on the property, the Villa Orleans
Motel, 4513 N. Ocean Drive. One was
for $1.740 million and the other for
$1.813 million.
The property owner, Patrick Seppi,
had reduced his asking price from $2.4
million to $1.955 million. He said he
was willing to accept a "split-the-dif-
ference" selling price at $1.776 mil-
lion on an "as is" basis.
Commissioner Jim Silverstone de-


scribed the new price as "a pretty
good deal."
The Orleans Motel property is a
two-story motel building, includ-
ing a kidney-shaped pool, patio
area and parking for 12 cars.
The building contains approxi-
mately 6,058 square feet of livable
area. The two lots are about 50 feet
wide by 125 feet deep and contain
about 12,500 square feet of land
area.

Since 1992, Pompano Beach seniors have found a place to dine,

make friends, quilt and play games at the E. Pat Larkins Center


By Maggie Davidson
PELICAN WRITER
When some seniors in
Pompano Beach had a need
for daily food, Mrs. Cloretta
Williams decided to make it
happen.
Williams, 76, started a
food program in March 1992.
Former Commissioner Pat
Larkins supported the pro-
gram and was instrumental in
getting the transportation and
food.
Pompano Beach Parks
and Recreation provides a bus
to pick up seniors who can't
drive.
The food is provided
through a community de-
velopment program grant
through the city and adminis-


tered by Meals on Wheels.
Originally housed at the
Mitchell Moore Center, the
program moved to E. Pat Lar-
kins Community Center, 520
Martin Luther King Blvd.,
Pompano Beach, two years
ago.
Larkins personally saw
to its relocation to the new
center.
The daily program starts
at 9 a.m. when the seniors
start to arrive.
Between 9 and 11 a.m.,
the seniors participate in
various activities that include
arm chair exercises, quilting,
board games, bingo on Friday,
sing-a-longs and crocheting.
Joyce Jackson, the
center's supervisor, meets

for examination, but no grounds to
proceed, McIntee said.
Besides the charges over possible
conflict of interest over his'role as a
member of the VFD and commission,
a charge was filed against McIntee for
being chairman of the Citizens Initia-
tive Committee, while serving as a
commissioner.
"The commission found no need for
action on the complaints, and all were
stopped," McIntee said.
Before he ran for office, Silverstone
said he called the Ethics Commission
to make sure what he was doing was
correct. At the time he was president
of the Optimist Club and chairman of
the VFD Pension Board.
The commission advised him there
was no problem with his service with
the Optimist Club. But there was a
direct relationship between the town
and the Pension Board, so he resigned
from that chairmanship when he ran
for office in November 2005. He
offered his services to the board but
didn't profit from it.
Last week he told the Ethics Com-
mission that the contract with the VFD
was between the Broward Sheriff's
Office and the VFD, not with the
town. An original lawsuit filed by the
VFD over breach of contract included
BSO and the town. "A judge ruled
that there was no direct relationship
between the volunteers and the town,
so the town couldn't be a third party to
that suit," Silverstone said.
He said the Ethics Commission
indicated if they had known about
the judge's ruling, the charges against
Silverstone and McIntee would have
been dropped earlier.
(The BSO ousted the VFD from the
town in the fall of 2006. Commission-
ers are expected to select the VFD to
provide fire suppression in town at
their meeting Wed., June 11.)

Roz Karneol came to Pompano
Beach in 1944 when it was still a farm
community. She shares her story as the
city approaches its one hundred year
birthday.
"I met my husband, Herman, in
Boston during W.W.II and eventu-
ally came to Pompano Beach to meet
his family. I never left. We married
in Temple Emanuel in Fort Lauder-
dale, and my life here began. It was a
totally different world from the one I
came from in Boston.
Our family patriarch, Abe Hirsh-
man had arrived in Pompano Beach in
1928 and opened the BonTon Depart-
ment Store. His brother, Moe, arrived
in 1934 and opened the Pompano
Pharmacy which still exists under dif-
ferent ownership. The Hirshman fam-
ily now numbered eight, included Abe
and Lena Hirshman, Moe and Goldie
Hirshman, Florence and Eddie David
and my husband Herman Karneal and
me.
"The other Jewish family in Pom-
pano Beach included Dave and Gussie
Goldberg and Harry and Fay Gold-
berg." Roz reminisces. The twelve of
us began the Pompano Jewish Circle
which was the foundation for our Jew-
ish community. We met in each other's
homes and talked about having our
own temple one day. Perhaps because
our Christian friends all had churches,
we were eager to identify ourselves
as a Jewish community. It's hard to

describe the depth of our feelings and
our need to do this."
"Our Pompano State Farmers' Mar-
ket was the largest wintertime whole-
sale produce market in the country at
that time.
There were Jewish brokers and
buyers at the market but they did not
know a Jewish community existed
here. Many came for the season and
lived in Miami Beach and other cities
south of us. I was a bookkeeper at the
market for over 20 years. Those of


us involved in the market spread the
word and our numbers grew.
We outgrew our living rooms and
began to meet at the Pompano Cham-
ber of Commnerce, and we also adver-
tised our existence in the local paper
and this helped identify us."
"Our lucky break came when Dr.
Tobin and his wife, Lee, from Cripple

Taking a Stand: Advocates


versus Lobbyists

By Chris Chiari
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
I am against the proposed Calypso Deep Water Port,
a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility less than 8
miles off the beach in Fort Lauderdale and Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea. Contrary to the claims that Suez Energy,
the company behind the project, makes in multiple full
page ads about the benefits of their project, there is
legitimate reason to be concerned.
Calypso's lobbyists have brushed away these concerns as unimportant. Yet
real questions remain about the supposed benefit to our community, the way that
the company has informed the public and the safety of the port.
Calypso is using the power of their marketing dollar to convince us that we
are the ones that need their product. But if the drive to build LNG ports in
America is based on demand, then I am sure that Suez and Calypso would be
shocked that LNG facilities already built in the United States are sitting dor-
mant.
In an article on May 29th titled "Global Demand Squeezing Natural Gas Sup-
ply," New York Times writer Clifford Krauss reveals that LNG facility devel-
opment in America has far outpaced the market for actually delivering LNG to
our shores. The United States has significant domestic reserves of natural gas,
which keeps the price lower here than in Europe. This means that because of
our supply of natural gas and the higher energy prices in Europe, the market will
continue to divert supplies away from our country.
I stood with my neighbors from the Galt Ocean Mile in front of the Fort
Lauderdale commission to correct the company's local lobbyist, Ms. Judy Stern.
She asked the Fort Lauderdale commission why we were coming forward now
to protest a project that is 10 years old.
Blending facts is the easiest way for lobbyists to get their way. The Calypso
Deep water port project was only submitted in the fall of 2006, not 10 years
ago.The 10 year old project is not the deep water port, but a pipeline that was
supposed to bring natural gas to Broward County from the Bahamas the initial
proposed site of the LNG port.
Our neighbors on the islands to the east were well aware of the dangers of
LNG. Because of local advocacy efforts, no LNG plant will be built in the Ba-
hamas in the foreseeable future. And only after the efforts in the islands failed
did Calypso set their sights on our coast.
We are up against a company that has been reluctant to answer even the most
basic questions. I believe the project will fail on the facts as soon as the com-
pany makes the commitment to share them. Instead of being transparent and
honest, Calypso and their local team of lobbyists have moved meetings at the
last minute and turned to full page advertisements to influence public opinion.


The way to get your kids to read

Step 1: Unplug them. Step 2: Give them solitude.

By Janine Wood
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
"Mom, there's a lot more to life than reading," my 14-year-old son said as
he rushed in from school one afternoon and text-messaged another reading-
averse boy down the block.
"That's a girl's book," he later said when I asked him to spend some quiet
time with Jane Eyre. "And, anyway, I only read at night."
So when my local library offered a talk on why boys don't read and what
parents can do about it, I signed up. Many of my neighbors had the same idea:
We came, desperate for advice on how to get our boys off the technology and
into the books.
Here's what the reading expert said: Boys don't read because they don't
like stories, poetry, or tales about relationships. They prefer nonfiction science,
math, and instructional booklets. He suggested parents entice boys with material
they enjoy such as sports statistics, instead of sports stories.
Several audience members nodded in agreement. Yes, their sons fit that
description. They probably couldn't read Robinson Crusoe, but they could zip
through a LEGO manual.
Call me a renegade, but I'm not falling for this latest theory.
Several decades ago, my brother fell in love with Cathy and Heathcliff
and never once questioned the gender-correctness of Wuthering Heights. He
plowed through Jane Austen, and continues to be a serious reader today. What's
changed?
With my suburban house serving as an anthropological study on the be-
havior of teenage boys, I've constructed my own theory: Boys don't read
because they are never alone. Many years ago C.S. Lewis, in his autobiography
Surprised by Joy, said, "I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms,
upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude. Also, of endless books."
Today, there aren't any quiet attics, only crowded sports arenas and a
frenzied push toward socializing. On the rare occasion a boy, or any child for
that matter, finds himself alone, we worry and tell ourselves we better get him
back on track--always playing, always competing, always moving toward the
next event, until, dulled by distraction, he becomes unable to concentrate on the
pleasurable work of reading.
"My son never reads," commiserated a father of a 16-year-old boy recently.
"He plays fantasy football." Maybe solitude will be a concept our children study
about but never experience. "Oh, yeah, solitude, wasn't that something done by
monks in the 13th century?" they'll ask. But isn't a certain amount of solitude
and boredom necessary for reading?
As a child, I found refuge in the unfinished basement of a suburban split
level, its concrete walls lined with books. Like C.S. Lewis, I had no restrictions
on what I could read.
Unfortunately, quiet rooms with books and soft lights have been replaced by
home entertainment centers and Internet access, hubs of whirring activity and
plasmatic imagery.
At my house, I try to create a suburban sanctuary amid the chaos: I turn off
the television during the week. Music goes off early in the evening. I don't have
cable and I keep the Internet password a secret. The rest of the time I bribe, beg,
and cajole.
Mean? Maybe.
Are there arguments? Yes. But I'm hoping for the big pay-off someday: an
adult who reads.
So while theories proliferate on why boys don't read like 'their brains work
differently, women teachers assign books that appeal to girls, boys like silly
stories' I think the answer is less complicated.
Before they become adults who don't read, we must guarantee our children
long stretches of time to revel in solitude.
"Don't come in, Mom," my son said one evening when I knocked on his
bedroom door. Later, I found what he had tried to keep hidden -- a corner of his
room, surrounded by blankets, with an outdoor lantern hanging above a pillow.
Scattered about, a few books.
I wonder how many other boys are reading in corners, far from the world's
unremitting noise.
Janine Wood is a homemaker and writer in Deerfield, Ill.

This is a non-partisan issue, and we are neighbors regardless of political af-
filiation. To be successful we need a united front against this project. The State
Representative in District 91 has not taken a position for or against this project.
Hopefully when she does, it will be on the side of advocates.
Tim Riley, an environmental attorney from California, did exactly what we
are doing now. He organized the opposition to a similar project proposed off of
their coast, and he succeeded.
We can do the same. We are citizens engaged against big business; we are
neighbors concerned about our coast. Together we can beat back
the interests of big business and commit to protecting the interest of our com-
munity.

Phillips said the festival
committee is trying to get
non-profit organizations to set
up food booths. She suggests
booths for barbecue chicken,
collard greens, sweet potato
pies, lemonade and iced tea.
They are still looking for ven-
dors for items such as vintage
signs, classic movies, books,
art and jewelry. Tickets for a
gasoline raffle to help fund
the festival are now for sale at
the library.
Among business sponsors
of the festival are Wal-Mart,
Winn-Dixie and Poitier Fu-

regularly with the seniors to
talk and visit. About 22 se-
niors come to the program on
a regular basis.
At 11 a.m. lunch is
served. Lunch is a well-bal-
anced, complete meal which
is catered every day by Meals
on Wheels. Each day, lunch
is accompanied by prayer
and reading of scripture. The
seniors are given food for the
weekend and holidays. There
is also a home-bound program
for providing food for seniors
who can't leave home.
Wadrine Boyd is the
nutritionist from Meals on
Wheels. She comes every day
and serves food. Meals on
Wheels menus are made up
each month. Seniors enroll
at the center with Boyd. She
takes the applications from the
seniors and keeps records on
them.
Williams, retired from
teaching after 31 years,


supervises the program. She
said that "congregating and
getting out of the house are
the most important things.
The senior program brings
people together. It's like a
big family. They share grief.
They care about each other."
The oldest member is
Mrs. Frances Myrick, who is
92. She has been there from
the beginning and still sews.
Mrs. Minnie L. Jordan,
90, is blind and still quilts.
Williams lays out the mate-
rials for Jordan. The quilt
patches have been pinned
together, and Jordan sews the
patches by following the pins.
Each year, there is a city-
wide Thanksgiving lunch at
the center, and seniors dis-
play their quilts. The seniors
are encouraged to give the
quilts to their children and
grandchildren. There is also
a Mother's Day program the
Thursday before Mother's
Day when the parks and
recreation employees provide
the lunch and give a plant to
everyone.

Work of Art Gallery and custom framing


a welcome addition east of the bridge


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Opened just a year ago at 3324 E.
Atlantic Blvd., Work of Art Gallery
has received a warm welcome from
the public. "Every day people stop in
and tell us how glad they are that we
are here," says Marjorie Zubero who
co-owns the gallery with artist, Marta
Echazarreta.
One such enthusiastic patron is
Tricia Travis who says, "Work of Art
is what we have all envisioned. It's
the beginning of a cultural renais-
sance on Atlantic Boulevard. We're
happy to have showings of such qual-
ity artists in the neighborhood."
Marjorie shares the same dream.
"As a business owner in East Pompa-
no Beach, my vision is to bring beau-
tiful art to our community. We're a
wonderful destination and a great rea-
son to cross the bridge. I think we are
actually meeting a need for a good art
gallery and framing shop to service
the many residents living on this side
of the Intracoastal," Marjorie adds.
"The tile store adjacent to us has been
successfully handling decor in the
area for the past 10 years. Many tile
shoppers are interested in knowing
what's happening in the gallery and
never fail to stop in and check our
exhibits out."
Because Marta has a second gal-
lery in Coral Gables, there is always
a flow of new work on exhibit. She
says, "Between the two galleries and
being an artist myself, I keep very
busy. We've had two exhibitions
so far. One featured Latin American
artists like me, and the other featured
works by the well known Florida art-
ist, John Winslow."
Marjorie says, "The Winslow
show was a big success. City dig-
nitaries joined us and we sold six
original Winslow pieces that day."
Chiming in, Marta explains, "We
are choosing to show artists who
appeal to our clients, and they seem
to gravitate to tropical colors and art
with an island or Florida feel. When
we do an exhibition, we create an
atmosphere to match the art with ap-

propriate music, wine and food ."
The Work of Art Gallery hopes to
have children's art exhibitions, featur-
ing local young artists, this summer or
in the fall. Walkers enter the Gallery
from the front and those who come by
car park in the back and enter through


Deco Tile.
Marta, who paints in mixed
media, describes her work as having
a vivid color, cubist look. She says,

separately, before the commis-
sion and staff. McIntee was
before them for 45 minutes
and Silverstone for 25, with-
out legal representation.
Asked their reaction now
that the board has ruled, Sil-
verstone said, "I feel very vin-
dicated that it's over with but
angered that somebody could
do this for political purposes."
Mark Brown, who filed the
charges, is executive editor of
ByTheSeaFuture newspaper.
McIntee said he showed
commissioners a photo of
himself as a fireman at the age
of 16. "For 46 years I was a
volunteer firefighter and never
once worried about pay. They
were reasonable people and
realized this was unjust.
"I feel we have been abused
by a system that allows an
individual to make com-
plaints, write about them, and
then we're not allowed to
respond for a year," McIntee
said. "Everything we've done
is for the town and not for
ourselves," McIntee said.
"We were put through hell
for a year," McIntee said.
"The authorities felt there was
no need for any further action,
and the incident was termi-
nated with no punishment."
Former LBTS Vice Mayor
John Yanni and Cindy Geesey,
former chairperson of the

had read about Cresthaven
houses for sale with a $200
down payment. They were
accustomed to vacationing
every winter in Miami Beach,
but decided to have a look at
the Cresthaven homes. They
came, looked and stayed. Doc
retired here and became the
President and motivator for
Temple Sholom.
"I can still hear him say,
'It's time to stop looking for
donors. We must raise the
money ourselves, buy some
land and build our own Tem-
ple. He fired us all up, and we
began to fund raise in a big
way. Every Jewish person in
the community was involved
and excited. We bought the
land where the Temple now
stands.
"There were so many who
gave tirelessly and generously,
I hope I'm not forgetting any-
one," she said apologetically
and began to name those she
remembered including Harry
and Fay Goldberg, Gert and
Bernie Millman, Irene and
Martin Reidich, Abe and Bess
Cor, Bebe and Eddie Kodish,
Dr. Harvey and Myra Saff,
Isabel and Stanley Rubel and
Sidney and Lorraine Harris.
We can never thank them
enough for their continuous
support.
When it was time to begin
building, we had help from
Richard Koff, a building
contractor, who built many
homes in Lyons Park, includ-
ing ours. He worked closely
with Lou Wolfe, the architect
who designed Temple Sho-
lom. Completed in July of
1960, the congregation soon
had 300 members.
"It felt great to help turn
our vision of a temple into a
reality. I have been a member
ever since the doors of Temple
Sholom opened, and I'm so
glad it's here serving the Jew-
ish community so well."

community. She has had a re-
warding 20 year career in the
produce market, managed to
have and raise two daughters,
Risa McClave and Rafaela
Twist and one granddaugh-
ter, Hannah McClave, all of
whom are living in Pompano
Beach. Roz and her hus-
band Herman Karneol, now
deceased, were active in the
community. Roz has served as
Past President of the Temple
Sisterhood, the American
Legion Auxiliary, Lions Club
Auxiliary, and Beta Sigma
Phi, a service sorority.
One of her favorite volun-
teer involvements was as a
facilitator for 25 years for the
Pompano branch of the Eliza-
beth Faulk Center for Group
Counseling, based in Boca
Raton. She says, "I worked
along side of a professional to
help any resident who came to
the group with an issue. The
variety was endless and the
counseling priceless."
She remains active in the
Pompano Beach Histori-


cal Society and still teaches
knitting at the Temple once a
week. Her activities include
weekly duplicate bridge and
Mah Jongg games. And to
keep in touch with the young-
er generation, she lunches
weekly with her 19 year-old
granddaughter, Hannah Mc-
Clave.
"I'm a big believer in
Interfaith Living," Roz says,
smiling. "Had I not come
to Pompano Beach, I would
never have met the wonder-
ful mix of people I have lived
happily with for most of my
life. It has been a wonderful
experience."
Thank you for sharing your
memories of Pompano Beach
in its earlier days and for
your contributions to both the
Jewish and greater Pompano
community.

Make Hurricane

plans for boats


Small boats under 20 feet

Portable Boats
If the boat is at home, it may either be left on its trailer or stored
upside down alongside the residence.
If the boat is left on its trailer, water that collects inside the hull may
damage the trailer. To help prevent damage, let some air out of the
trailer tires so water will drain out of the back of the boat, and block
the wheels to prevent rolling.
Avoid placing small boats between buildings because of the poten-
tial for "wind funneling."
Tie the boat down by using either buried ground anchors or large
well-rooted trees. Use good, strong rope and protect from chaf-
ing. Check boat cleats for strength. Do not use small cleats or cleats
screwed into fiberglass. If necessary, tie line fully around boat.
If the boat is in storage, check the contract to see if the storage
marina is responsible for the boat during the storm.
Motors and all boat equipment should be stored inside.whenever
possible. Canvas should either be removed or rolled tightly, because
the wind will get under it and gradually rip it.
Non-Portable Boats
Sailboats in sheltered water may be sunk after removing all gear.
Damage from water action is possible.
Otherwise, the boat should be tied out from the docking area by
using at least two anchors and lines into deeper water (one anchor
forward and one aft). Allow sufficient slack for the rise of the water,
possibly 4-5 feet of tide.
Tie off the boat at least 12-15 feet from the dock. Clean all cockpit
drains and remove any equipment that would be damaged by water.
Remove boat records to a safe place or place in a watertight con-
tainer (glass jar, for example).

Safety
complex
Continued from page 1
Two other motels in the
4500 block of North Ocean
Drive are on the market,
according to the Miller
Appraisal Group. Castle-
by-the-Sea is priced at $1.7
million; and La Mer Motel at
$1.8 million.
Arguing against the
purchase, Minnet said the
town already has enough
property and could look at
land it already owns for a
public safety complex.
"I don't think we need to
invest more until we know the
budget and where the property
values are. I'm not willing to
spend $1.776 million of the


town's money at this time,"
she said.
The day after this meeting
Broward County Property
Tax Appraiser Lori Parrish
released the county's taxable
property values. Values in
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea were
down from $2.321 million
in 2007 to $2.122 million in
2008, an 8.60 percent decline.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee
disagreed with the mayor,
noting the town is 10 years
behind with a police station
and 15 years behind with a
fire station. "Our deputies
work in a closet, and our fire
department is going from two
trucks to four with 92 people,"
he said, referring to the
Volunteer Fire Department.
The volunteer department was
the only bidder to provide fire


I GARDEN ISLE MARINE SERVICES, INC. I


suppression service in town
starting Oct. 1.
"We need an environment
for our public safety
people that is rational and
professional," Mclntee said.
McIntee asked Colon if the
town would have to borrow
money for this purchase. "We
have the money," Colon said,
noting that one of the loans
now on the books was for a
public safety development.
She said $4 million was
budgeted for a municipal
complex four years ago.
Colon said the town soon
will have a fire department,
AMR, or American Medical
Response, for emergency
medical services and police.
"We only have one room
for fire and fire rescue. Now
BSO Fire Rescue sits in two
trailers. It's time we address
this issue."
"How often does adjacent
property come on the
market?" Commissioner


Birute Clottey asked.
Clottey said she would
like to see another town-
owned property put on the
market. She referred to a
building used as a warehouse
by the town's Public
Works Department in Fort
Lauderdale.
Colon said the town
needed a second appraisal
on that property, but it would
be advertised for sale "by
this week or next." It was
advertised June 1.
The town invited bids on the
property at 5423 NE 14 Ave.
until 2 p.m., June 12.
Minnet still wasn't
convinced buying the motel
property was a good idea. "If
we redo town hall and Jarvis
Hall, we could come up with a
facility," she suggested.
"How much would it cost?"
Silverstone asked.
"Our goal was to acquire
adjacent land," Colon said.
Mclntee said a fire station


would cost $2 to $3 million.
Redoing town hall would
cost $6 to $8 million. "We
have 120 people with fire and
police. We could put bunks on
the roof," McIntee said.
Once the purchase is
complete, the plan is to use
the first floor of the motel
for police and the second
for fire personnel, according
to Commissioner Jim
Silverstone. "The structure is
sound. Some small changes
will be made later."
Broward County owns the
trailers now used by BSO Fire
Rescue near town hall and
behind Assumption Catholic
Church. The county will take
those back in August.
Volunteer Fire Department
trucks will be parked under
the garage now used by
the VFD near town hall or
protected by an overhang,
Silverstone said.

Random
Greens
Frittata
By Donna Torrey
PELICAN WRITER
By now, everyone should
know how important getting
enough vegetables into our
diet is. The best sources are
"Green."
These would be plants such


Chard has shiny green ribbed leaves, with stems that range from white to yel-
low and red depending on the cultivar. It has a slightly bitter taste. Fresh young
chard can be used raw in salads. Mature chard leaves and stalks are typically
cooked or sauteed; the bitter flavor fades with cooking.


as: lettuce, spinach, kale,
rappini, Purslane, arugula,
mustard, turnip, chard, beet
and radish tops and many
others. These crops are easily
grown in a small garden or
even in pots.
I had to go to a meeting at
7 p.m. and after a busy day
at the shop, I hadn't really
planned a meal.


So, out to the garden I went,
and low and behold, there
was a lettuce plant that had
gotten rather tough and started
to bolt. It was healthy and
green, though, so out came
my clippers and off to the sink
for a quick rinse and plucking
off of leaves!
Here's a quick and easy,
nutritious and delicious meal


with items most anyone has
on hand.
One large bunch of something
GREEN! (At least 4 cups
fresh, which will cook down
by at least half, or even more,
depending on the plant)
A large fry pan, preferably
cast iron, and definitely NOT
toxic Teflon
2 Tablespoons of good quality
olive oil
1 to 2 cloves fresh garlic,
crushed or sliced or, one small
onion sliced, or both
1 to 2 Tablespoons fresh
herb such as parsley, basil
or oregano, or your personal
favorites (from your garden, of
course!) Remember, herbs are
greens, too.
Don't be stingy. The more
the merrier!
4 to 6 eggs
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, pepper
to taste
2 Tablespoons Romano or


Parmesan Cheese
4 slices of Provolone or your
personal favorite cheese
In a small bowl, beat the eggs
with salt and pepper. Over
medium heat saut6 the garlic
and/or onion, then add the
greens with the water still on
them from rinsing; you may
need to add a tablespoon or two
more of water if needed. After
the leaves are wilted, allow a
minute or so to cook. Add the
egg mixture over top of the
cooked greens and simmer on
low until it begins to set. Now
add the cheeses and cover.
Turn off the heat and let it
cook gently as it cools for five
minutes.
Slice into four quarters and
you have a delicious, nutritious
and easy meal, full of protein,
vitamins and antioxidants.
Be creative and use what
you have; don't waste those
greens!

'TEAK

FOR


EVERY


DAD
It's almost Father's Day ... the
perfect time to show dad how much
he is loved by serving his favorite
steak. While all dads are different,
your dad's personality may
actually determine what steak he
enjoys most. Whether he is a mild-
mannered filet mignon loving man
or a take-charge dad who always
orders a strip loin, a big juicy steak
on Father's Day is sure to please.
Which steak are you?
The Omaha Steaks Product
Development Team.recently conducted
an informal survey of customers to
determine if there was any connection
between the personality traits of
individual consumers and the types of
steaks they prefer. The survey findings
indicate that preferences in favorite
steaks are directly linked to a well-
defined group of common personality
oi |characteristics. Those who prefer ...
Filet Mignons are mild-mannered,
tender-hearted, meticulous and enjoy
simple elegance.
Ribeyes are even-tempered, strive
for balance in life and have laid-back
attitudes with a bit of a maverick spirit.
Strip Loins are passionate and
somewhat indulgent, with strong
personalities and take-charge attitudes.
Top Sirloins are mainstream with
down-to-earth attitudes and a "what you
see is what you get" philosophy of life.

grilling tips, call 1-800-960-8400, log

LBTS commissioners look to solve feral iguana population problem


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER

Commissioners in Lau-
derdale-By-The-Sea recently
unanimously agreed to spend
$1,000 on iguana control in
town.
Commissioner Birute Clot-
tey requested the control, as
she had previously, without
success as a citizen before she
was elected. "We have a prob-
lem. These are not cute little
creatures," she said. "They
have teeth like a saw."
John Olinzock, assistant
to the town manager, said he
talked to three trapping com-
panies. One trapper is David
Johnson, owner and author of
Iguanatrapper.com.
The problem with feral
iguanas is widespread along


the South Florida coast north
to West Palm Beach and now
into Martin County, Johnson
said during an interview.
"Iguanas are tropical, and
they don't belong here. In
a cold snap, some become
comatose, and some die. They
fall out of trees where they
sleep at night. Many were
killed off in the cold spells
during this past winter.
Small iguanas are extreme-
ly vulnerable. Bigger ones
do better since they can store
more heat.
"It's worse than coconuts
when one falls out of a tree,"
said Commissioner Stuart
Dodd. "It scares the bejeebers
out of you."
Johnson said he has been
called to Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea several times to homes


near the Intracoastal Water-
way. He has agreed to assess
the situation in town but had
not been hired at the time of
this interview (June 4).


He said he currently traps
iguanas only for homeowners'
associations or subdivisions
where there are a substantial
number of properties with the


About iguanas


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER

Feral iguanas are unpro-
tected exotic species. The
green iguana is the most
common in this area. They
can grow to over six feet.
Trapper David Johnson
also has seen the Mexican
spinytail and black spinytail,
mostly in Holywood. They
don't climb trees. They bur-
row in the ground and are
very aggressive and have


attacked children.
Igtiana mating season
is November to January.
"Males are aggressive dur-
ing mating, standing their
ground and trying to build
harems. One male has all the
females in a certain range,"
Johnson noted.
Pregnant females will
have a bloated belly early in
the day, and one female has
50 eggs. "That's what you
want to trap," he said.

problem and for his existing
client base. He said he doesn't
profit from his trapping.
Johnson lives in Del-
ray Beach and used to trap
iguanas in three South Florida
counties. Now high gasoline
prices prohibit him from driv-
ing as far as Pompano Beach
for one home.
The iguanas overpopu-
late and then keep moving
where the water is, Johnson
said. "Ninety percent are near
water, near canals, the Intra-
coastal and swimming pools,"
he said. They like the brackish
water of the finger canals.
"Iguanas bask near the
pool to get Vitamin D from
the sun to help digest their
food and defecate," Johnson

Oliver Saucy marks 20 years with



two Zagat 'Best' designations


At Caf6 Maxx, chef Oliver
Saucy mixes seasonal food
and long standing favorites
and serves them with the
just the right wine.








"


-A~


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER

According to the 2008 edition of Zagat, the foodie's guide
to fine dining, Cafe Maxx in Pompano Beach is the best
place around here to go for dinner and the best place to
go to close a business deal. That's two "bests" for a restaurant in an
unimposing strip mall.
The owners of Caf6 Maxx, Chef Oliver Saucy and Darrel Broek celebrated 20 years of
success this year by installing a full liquor bar in their 100-seat restaurant. With one tiny
TV mounted on the wall, Saucy calls it the "world's smallest sports bar. "
Recently the partners added a climate controlled wine cellar that keeps their large
inventory of reds at a cool 55 degrees. An equal number of whites are lodged in an-
other cooler giving Cafe Maxx northeast Broward's most extensive wine list. On
average, there are 300 available wines. It's a feature that has brought diners back
for years, some for the wine tasting that range in price from $30 to $1,800, the
latter a chance to sip wine from a 30-year old French vineyard.
Saucy tries to balance his menu so that diners want to come back often.
\ About 25 percent are house favorites he dares not eliminate, another one-
third are the familiar proteins 'veal, lamp chops and tuna,' and the remain-
der can be whatever is seasonal including elk and buffalo ribeyes. ,"People
who come for the season want their old favorites like the three peppercorn
filet mignon and the blue cheese potatoes; locals want something new,"
Saucy said. "It's a constant balancing act."
He has adjusted the menu too for people who want lighter fare offering
half portions of pastas, a vegetable plate, lower carb recipes and smaller
portions.
Trained at the Culinary Institute of New York where his dad was an in-
structor, Saucy worked at The Tower Club in Fort Lauderdale before coming
to Cafe Max\ at the young age of 22.
He had learned to cook ever. thinim from scratch at a tonm girls' camp in
I upper Nei Yoilk .'[,lt' \\hile he e en b.tked the dJoniut, and hot dog buns
so Saucy brought a baker) into Cafe Ma\\ soon after he arrived and all
the pasta, cracker bread and foccacio is made on the premises, as well as
the desserts which include the monumental fallen chocolate souffle that
ha, become mainstaN of celebratory dinners.
LUnderstanding diners can be a fickle bunch. Saucy brings new people
in the door b. holding regular cooking classes and participating in the
huge Taste of The Nation charity event at the Convention Center which
benefits area food banks. He is now working on a TV show for WXEL
that he hopes to film in front of a line audience. Besides promoting his
restaurant, he most enjoys hanging \ ith his kids. He does have a fishing
boat, but the most he usually catches he said, "is a buzz."


Here are two of his best-selling recipes. Both feature what some call the perfect food, bananas.


Macadamia and banana crusted snapper, sweet mashed and fruit salsa


Macadamia crust
I cup macadamia nuts. toasted
1/3 cup sweetened dried banana chips
1 tablespoon basil, chopped
1 tablespoon chives, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons virgin olive oil
1 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper A


Coarsely grind all ingredients
in a food processor.

For the fish:
8 7/8 ounce mahi mahi filets
Virgin olive oil
2-3 ounces chardonnay


Brush filets and sheet pan with olive oil. Pour a small amount of char-
donnay over each filet. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly crust mahi
mahi with prepared macadamias and bake in a 400-degree oven until
flaky and moist.


Sweet mashed potatoes
2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled, cut in I to 2 chunks, salt.

Bring potatoes to boil in salted water in a medium sauce pot. Reduce
heat to a simmer and cook for approximately 30-40 minutes or until
fork tender. Remove from heat and drain.

*Mash with potato masher. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

Spezzano changes his menu every



two weeks at the LHP Yacht Club

By Judy W ilsonP A. .
P,:_,.,N,, unI rR .. Rudy Spezzano

hef Rudy Spezzano keeps dinners at Lighthouse Point gives diners at
Yacht and Racquet Club interesting by offering new' .. LHPRC choice
menu specials every two weeks, usually/ 20 new dishes of traditional
liver and onions or
divided between lunch and supper. In addition, he fashions three exotic Tasmanian
theme nights a week and lays out an abundant Sunday brunch. It's salmon.
all done to keep club members coming back for more meals.

This summer, people who haven't tested Spezzano's kitchen will hate the opportunity. For the
first time ever, summer memberships are being sold which offer access to tennis court,. wimnlnI ;- '
pool, fitness center, lounge and dining room. /
For others, his food travels out of the private club for private catered :fittirs. The club also .
opens its doors to the public for many charity events, such as The Taste of Lichthouiie /." :.
Point.
Spezzano came to the club nine years ago after working at several other high end '
clubs and restaurants. He was the chef when Nick's Italian Fisher) opened in 19 90 in
Boca Raton, cooked for the private dining room at the Boca Raton Hotel and Resort and A '
worked at Woodfield Country Club. His internship was done at La \'Vieille Maison a .
landmark restaurant in Boca that closed two years ago. His expertise in food manage-
ment came in part from a two-year stint at a five-star hotel in Basil, Sw itzerland
With food from around the world at his fingertips, Spezzano calls his cooking'
Continental: the tuna is from Hawaii, the swordfish from the Pacific Ocean. -
the salmon from Tasmania. It's delivered overnight from these exotic climes. . .
ordered by noon it can be on a dinner plate the next day. Because ever thing
is delivered almost daily, there is no frozen food in these freezers. Every- '
thing is served fresh.
But interestingly enough Spezzano says, while pink snapper may be "".
different and intriguing to some of his diners, there are three things he .
cannot take off his menu: meatloaf, liver and onions and hot turke--
with dressing and gravy. And a house favorite, crusted yellow tail
snapper, is the entr6 of choice at many special parties.
While fish is a popular option, Spezzano has seen the re-
turn of the meat-eating diner and notes the number of successful
steakhouses in the area. He does his own research on what is
trendy by eating at area restaurants and attending food shows in
New York and Chicago. This summer, he is looking forward to a visit_ ..'.
to the Napa wine country.
His favorite place for food, other than his own, is 32 East in Delray Beach. He is fond also of Chops Lobster Bar in Boca Raton and a new Italian eatery Casa
d'Angelo where, he says, the service is excellent.
When he is not running his busy kitchen or tasting the food of other chefs, Spezzano indulges his other passion, golf, and plays at least once a week
The LHPYRC is probably Northeast Broward's most popular place for banquets, club luncheons and private parties. Within the club membership are other clubs
such at The Corinthians, that hold their own special events and which require Spezzano to keep coming up with new offerings.
This chef is not possessive about his recipes. He publishes a newsletter that contains some of his favorites and he agreed to share two of them, suitable for al fresco
dining, with us.

Iguana peril
Continued from page 15
said. "They sit by the edge of
the pool so they have a quick
escape route if they're con-
fronted."
Johnson said in the last
year or so sentiment has
changed regarding trapping
iguanas. "Psychopaths used
to hunt me down with a rifle,"
he said. He's received death
threats by email, and people
used to watch for him and
threaten him.
"Now it's recognized they
can't be left alone to over-
populate," he said.
A bite by an iguana is an
injection of salmonella, John-
son said.
In many gated communi-
ties and condos, the grandchil-


dren come to visit and use the
pool. "They're in jeopardy of
contracting illness from sal-
monella, and that's not good
news," Johnson said.
Children play on toys and
then leave them poolside, and
an iguana has been there.
The biggest problem with
iguanas is they eat all the
vegetation. "When there are
dry spells and they've run
out of food, they move to
gated community walls, and
then they stay," Johnson said.
"They'll eat anything when
they're starving, hibiscus, cro-
tons, palm tree branches."
"When they're all over the
place, they drive you batty,"
Johnson said. "You can't get
in your car or your boat."
He's had to remove a spinytail
iguana by noose from a toilet.


The Pelican, 954-783-8700


U


About iguanas
Continued from page 15
Johnson sets traps early
in the morning with a fruit
or leafy vegetable bait.
The traps are small, so he
doesn't catch dogs, and the
bait isn't attractive to cats.
Sometimes he herds iguanas
into a trap along the seawall
or uses a noose that doesn't
choke.
The problem is so wide-
spread, and there aren't
enough trappers, Johnson
said. "People have to take
action on their own." He
said he's glad others are
doing it.
Johnson is a part-time
iguana trapper. His other
job? "Software developer.
You thought I'd be a NAS-
CAR driver, right?" he says
laughing.
He got started trapping


iguanas at his own home
because his wife was afraid
to go outside anymore. The
first year they saw one and
reacted, "How cute."
The second year they
noticed an awful lot more
of them. The third year they
had planted hibiscus and
came out one day to find
only one stub left.
At the recent commission
meeting where funding was
approved, Commissioner
Dodd asked if the town
would get any revenue from
the trapped iguanas.
Clottey said the iguanas
would be disposed of hu-
manely, as required by law.
Clottey had first asked
the commission for help two
years ago with the iguana
problem where she lives in
Bel Air.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIn-
tee seconded her motion for
the funding but suggested


they start in the south part
of town and move north,
since he and Clottey both
live in Bel Air, and some-
one would criticize starting
there.
Dodd said the trapper
should start anywhere he
chooses.
Clottey said iguanas are
smart and start to recognize
the traps, so the trapper
would need to move around
town.
To help curb the prob-
lem, Olinzock said he
learned residents should be
cautious when feeding pets
and leaving cat and dog
dishes out. "That's a gour-
met feast for iguanas."
Most of the calls re-
ceived at town hall regard-
ing iguanas are from the
northern part of town, ac-
cording to the town public
information officer, Steve
d'Oliveira.

For these cooks, good barbecue is state-of-the art


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Nothing says summer
like the words "grillin"
and "chillin." Although the
"chillin" part is tough here, it
can almost be achieved with a
nearby swimming pool, or an
equally handy keg of beer.
So we set out to find lo-
cal grillers, folks who prefer
glowing coals to a kitchen
range, and came up with a
few who were glad to share
their experiences with outdoor
cookery. I
Culinary Concepts in
Pompano Beach, a store that
sells every kind of outdoor
cooker metal, gas, charcoal
and ceramic seemed a good
place to start.
Owner Dean Merten en-
courages his crew, led by the
"barbeque king," Joe Stokan,
to enter competitive events
and this spring they set up an
overnight camp outside the


Deerfield Beach Chamber of
Commerce for its BBQ cook
off. The all- night vigil was
necessary because Stokan
cooked brisket, a particularly
tasty beef that when cooked
10-12 hours, and basted
repeatedly in its own juices,
may be the Nirvana of barbe-
queing.
"It is high maintenance,"
Stokan said.
According to Stokan,
the first thing to know about
achieving a good brisket is to
know a good butcher. Ask for
a cut with a layer of fat and
score it so that the fat drips
into the pan below. Tempera-
tures must stay constant so
the fire must be continually
stoked. Beer or apple juice
added to the drippings and
slathered on every 30 minutes
or so, keeps the meat moist.
It's truly a labor of love, but
at the Chamber Cook Off was
worth the effort. Stokan's

Barbecue


Continued from page 22
team won two handsome
trophies.
Merten said there is an
easier way to cook brisket
than on the standard char-
coal cooker. He sells several
brands of ceramic cookers
all of which hold heat to a
constant temperature and keep
the moisture in so that less
frequent basting is required.
One such cooker, the Big
Green Egg, has attracted such
a strong following that owners
have an official online com-
munity for "eggsperts" and
"eggheads."
Backyard barbequing is
dominated by the male sex
probably because initially
it seemed more manly than
putzing around in the kitchen.
But at the Deerfield Beach
home of Henry and Joan
Gould, Joan is on the back
patio tending as many as
three grills at a time, while
Henry stands by for cleanup
duty. "The backyard is my
domain," Joan said. "Henry's
domain is eating."
Joan grew up in Miami
where it was an adventure
to drive to the edge of the
Everglades and eat barbeque
at a place called The Pit, or to
frequent Shorty's on Old Ken-
dall Drive. She also had the
advantage of Cuban neighbors
who taught her about spices.
She is not kidding when she
says if she told you her secret
sauce ingredients, she would
have to kill you so it is better
not to ask. She does mention
that olive oil is one of the ba-
sics, and for her green sauce,


parsley and garlic.
"When we moved here
in 1992, I couldn't find any
places like those in Miami, so
I had to create my own barbe-
cue pit," she said.
Temperature is the main
thing when grilling, Joan says.
It's the tricky part and the dif-
ference between meat done to
perfection or not. Keep the
grill lid on she advises except
when adding wood chips.
She soaks hers in fruit juices
or wine to give them flavor.
She cooks almost any meat
or fish on one of her Webers.
For turkey and whole chicken,
she makes a pit of charcoal
and wood chips and puts this
main course in the middle.
For steak, she seers the meat
on both sides, covers a few
minutes depending on thick-
ness and than lets set up for
five minutes before slicing to
retain the juices.
Cove resident Bob Adrian
is no less an enthusiastic
barbecue guy, but he takes a
more relaxed approach. Store-
bought sauces are fine, Adrian
says. He likes anything pro-
duced by Ken's Steakhouse
Marinades for his chicken and
marinates the pieces for eight
to 24 hours. For his steaks, he
prefers Al Sauce or Montreal
Steak Seasoning which he
applies three or four hours
before cooking. The secret to
tender steaks, he believes, is
getting them to room tempera-
ture before putting them on
the grill. Once on the fire, he
times them precisely: three to
four minutes
on one side, one minute on
the other, for rare to medium
rare meat.


While he does cook on
gas, in his own backyard he
prefers charcoal heat.
Rick Derby says he will
try anything on the grill and
like Gould, he makes his own
sauces. Honey is one of his
not- so- secret ingredients.
He dips everything into hot
honey, even bratwurst, before
adding other finishing sauces.
Turkey on the rotisserie is
one of his favorite meals and
this method brings him rave
reviews: put a hunk of honey
comb in the cavity and stuff
it with fruit or vegetables.
Mandatory is a piece of lemon
to kill acidity. Before stuffing
the cavity, rub it with garlic
butter. Then rub the butter on
the outside and press chives
into the skin. A 15- pound
turkey will cook four hours
if the lid is opened only once
or twice. Let the bird sit for
45 minutes and then cook it
for another hour. Finished,
it is dark brown, crispy but
not burnt and the veggies are
delicious.
Derby says he learned
the art of backyard cooking
through successful experimen-
tation and so far he has never
made a mistake. He loves
to try new things and never
forgets a recipe. Derby even
cooks on his 28-foot boat on
a grill he rigged off the side.
He cooks with both gas and
charcoal, but adds smoked
chips to the well inside his gas
grill for flavor.
Actually, Derby does all
the cooking for him and his
wife Cindy. Inside, he likes
the crock pot or will revert to

one of his all time favorites,
sloppy Joes. When he cooks
for parties, which he does of-
ten, Derby says, "I've never
had anything left behind.
There's never anything to put
in the refrigerator."
At Jim Heidisch's house,
duck breast is a favorite of
his entire family, so at our
request he tried it on the grill.
"Not bad," he said, "but you
have to be careful. They are
so fatty." For his experiment,
Heidisch divided his grill -
half hot, half cool -cut through
the duck breast fat and waited
for the coals to get grey. Then
he cooked the breasts skin
side down for three minutes,
turned them for another five.


Since they were still pink in
the middle, he put them on
the cool side for another five
minutes. "If you really enjoy
grilling, this method is fine,"
Heidisch said, "but I think I
like pan roasted better."
He has a 16-inch fry pan
that cooks eight breasts at a
time, seared for five minutes
on one side, one minute on the
other and then cooked for 10
minutes on a baking sheet at
350 degrees. And don't forget
to serve the duck with mango
chutney.
Heidisch thinks that during
his young married life he was
the only man in his peer group
that cooked. He once enter-
tained the thought of writing a
cooking column for men, but
now concedes that the idea
"has probably seen its day."

4850 N. Federal Hwy. Lighthouse Point


and fisherman Tony Farretta
loves his backyard so much
that cooking in it is a true
pleasure. The Lighthouse
Point resident is at his gas
grill, probably five times a
week whether he is smoking
freshly caught kingfish or
searing his favorite grill meal,
filet mignon. "It's really beau-
tiful here and picturesque. I
love being in my backyard,"
Farretta said.
He once did all the cook-
ing for a party of 100 people
and on another occasion
grilled 100 hamburgers for
guests who began eating at
noon and did not finish until
1 a.m. "I was on my feet the
whole time, but it was fun,"
he said.
"I grew up in the meat
business. I had master butch-
ers on both sides of my
family, so naturally I make a
fantastic hamburger!"
Farretta finds store- bought
spices do just fine for him. He
uses authentic jerk season-
ing from Jamaica, his wife's


native land, and spices from
South America where he once
lived. The jerk seasoning goes
on everything: pork chops,
chicken, ribs. His grill also
has a smoker attached and
likes to make fresh- catch,
kingfish dip which he gives
away freely.
"I guess I have been con-
sistently cooking outside for
30 years," said this barbecue
chef.
Today's charcoal is liter-
ally centuries away from its
origins when it was carried
by travelers to start fires and
6,000 years ago was the fuel
used to smelt copper. Henry
Ford brought it into our back-
yards when he invented the
briquette using a combination
of hardwoods and coal which
he sold at his auto dealerships.
Charcoal's components
remain much the same as in
Ford's time, ignoring the ad-
dition of Jack Daniels whis-
key and other such flavors.
And certainly the vessels used
for cooking have, thanks to


American ingenuity, become
varied and sophisticated.
But we think camp fires
inspire boys to become men
who cook outdoors.
It is the ideal place to
make that gooey concoction
of marshmallow and choco-
late known as S'mores and,
as logs crackle and wisps of
smoke vaporize into the night,
for boys to dream about the
future. It's probably then and
there they decide to become
backyard cooks.


Nothing says summer like the words
"grillin" and "chillin."
