Pompano

Past

By Dan Hobby
SPECIAL TO THE CENTENNAL
Dan Hobby serves as the execu-
tive director of the Pompano Beach
Historical Society and the Sample-Mc-
Dougald House Preservation Society.
He is also a member of the Pompano
Beach Centennial Celebration Com-
mittee. For almost thirty years he has
been involved in the preservation of
local history and has written a number
of books and articles on our past.
What brought the first
pioneers to Pompano Beach?
The earliest people to arrive came
in the 1890s to work on projects such
as surveying or construction for the
Florida East Coast Railway. They
soon saw the opportunity to acquire
land and farm and make a new start in
southern Florida. A number of families
moved here from northern Florida,
southern Georgia and other parts of
the South.
Of course, this was not possible
until Henry Flagler brought the rail-


Pompano's story

teller has other

tales to tell

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach historian Bud Gar-
ner has written another book about his
favorite place, but don't expect to be
able to buy it.
Garner, 82, has compiled the memo-
ries of 40 or so long time and former
residents into a volume he has named
Footprints of Old Pompano. He ran a
first printing of 200 and, using the 400
names on his email list of Beanpick-
ers, has sold all but 25. These he is
parceling out very carefully.
Vacationing in Dahlonega, GA,
Garner called in last week to say
that he has always been intrigued
by footprints so he chose that word
to describe the contributions of his
storytellers.
Garner's first book, Tales of Old
Pompano, is a memoir of his own ex-
periences growing up here. He moved
to town from Alabama when he was
just nine months old after his father
came in 1925 to work for the railroad.

road through here in 1896. Prior to
that date there just was no good way
to get to southern Florida one had to
come by water or over primitive trails
that were little more than footpaths
through the wilderness.
Who were the founders of the
city's incorporation?


Mrs. Blanche General Ely, Pompano's advocate for equal education, was the school's principal.


When the local residents decided
to incorporate, not everyone had a
formal say in that process. In 1908,
segregation was the law of the land,
and Pompano's black residents were
denied the ballot. Likewise, it would
be another dozen years before the 19th
Amendment was added to the U.S.


Constitution giving women the right
to vote.
And so it was 33 white males
who voted to incorporate the Town of
Pompano. Many of those men car-
ried names that are still familiar in
Pompano Beach today: Blount, Lyons,

Historian Hazel Armbrister remembers


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
There isn't much that Hazel Arm-
brister hasn't done. She's picked beans
for 50 cents a hamper, been a retail
sales person, bookkeeper, teacher,
community educator and historian.
She helped elect former Pompano
Beach Commissioner E. Pat Larkins
to the office where he served for more
than 20 years. This year he retired.
Armbrister is now a candidate for
that seat.
She's been a wife, a mother and
grandmother to her own and neighbor-
hood children.
She says, "When I'm gone, people
might say, 'I knew Hazel. She was a
good person.' Others will say, 'I knew
Hazel. She was a hellion.' Some will
say I did good things. Others will say,
'Boy, oh boy.' That's life. I've enjoyed
every minute of mine, never mind the
struggles. Every day when I put my
feet on the floor I thank the Lord for
another day."
The long-time teacher and civic
leader in Northwest Pompano Beach
now heads an historical group, is a
member of the Centennial Celebration
Committee and is a candidate for city


commission.
Armbrister lives on Blanche Ely
Avenue, named for another longtime
educator.
"Whatever I do, I need to do it
now," she said during a recent inter-
view at her home in Liberty Park.
Currently, many of her activities re-
volve around Centennial observances
in Pompano Beach.
She is president of Rock Road Res-
toration Historical Group, a member
of the Pompano Beach Historical
Society and the Centennial Committee
and serves on the committee for the


Broward County Historical Commis-
sion.
When blacks first came to settle
in Pompano Beach, no hard roads
existed. The entrance to the com-
mercial area was a rocky road called
Hammondville Road, now also known
as Northwest Third Street or Martin
Luther King Boulevard.
"Those asking for directions would
be told to 'go down the rocky road,"'
Armbrister said. "That's how the Rock
Road group got its name. We aim to

2 The Pelican


Smiles are all part of Dr. Jaline Boccuzzi's practice


By Jaline Boccuzzi, DMD

SPECIAL TO THE CENTENNIAL
A native South Florid-
ian, I spent my childhood in
Hollywood and graduated
from South Broward High
School in 1985. I followed
in my mother's footsteps and
became a Registered Dental
Hygienist in 1989 where my
passion for dentistry started.
Then I began an educational
journey beyond my dreams
at Tufts University School of
Dental Medicine, from which
I graduated in 1995.
I continued to study and
practice in Massachusetts for
almost seven years. Dur-
ing the winter of 2000, after
too many long frigid years in
the Northeast, I came to visit
family and friends and knew
I wanted to return to South
Florida.
One of my first contacts was
Pompano Beach resident, Don
Braswell of Patterson Dental
Supply, who introduced me
to one of his clients, Don L.
King, D.D.S. Located just
north of Atlantic Boulevard
and east of Federal High-
way, Dr King's stand-alone,
one-story dental office was
designed in the 1950's by the
architectural firm of Todd and
Wiesman.
Mr. Robert Todd and his


wife Helen are still patients of
the practice. A unique feature
of the office waiting room is
a coral wall actually designed
from a similar structure at Mr.
Todd's home in Pompano. I
had the pleasure of working
alongside Dr. King until his
retirement in 2002 when I
became the sole practitioner.
I began my practice with
two employees, both of whom
had worked for Dr. King. I
was extremely fortunate to in-
herit, as my Dental Assistant,
Sandy Mercier (Campo at the
time) whom I now endear-
ingly refer to as "Our Sandy,"
aka my right hand gal. Del
Leone was the delightful
voice you heard when you
called the office. She an-
swered the phone with grace,
poise, and professionalism.
Sandy Bryant, R.D.H.,
joined the team in September,
2003. Anyone who has been
in her care can understand
why her "shingle" is proudly
hung by the front door, next to
mine. Thoughtful and car-
ing, Sandy always provides a
gentle yet meticulous dental
hygiene experience.
Currently our dental team
consists of Sandy Bryant,
R.D.H., Sandy Mercier,
C.D.A., Eugenia Morgan,
Cristina Casas, C.D.A., and
Marie Joseph, C.D.A.

As Pompano Beach has
evolved and modernized, so
did our practice with state-of-
the-art digital x-rays, intra-
oral cameras, cavity-detecting
lasers, chairside computer
monitors and many other
advances gained through at-
tending numerous educational
symposiums. Through the
years, one axiom that Dr.
King emphasized, which
still holds true today, is that
of treating patients with the
utmost respect and compas-
sion with the best possible


treatment tailored to each
individual.
There are hundreds of
beautiful smiles, healthier and
stronger mouths in Pompano
Beach today, thanks to your
confidence in us, and your re-
ferrals, both long-time patients
of Dr. King who have allow
me to continue their dental
treatment, and new patients
who have become part of our
ever-expanding dental fam-
ily. As a team, we continue to
welcome anyone with dental
concerns, needs or desires.


We base our practice on care
and understanding of each
person individually.
Pompano Beach is now and
always will be home to me.
God willing, I'm not going
anywhere.
Pompano Beach, have a
fabulous birthday, and keep
your sunny smile shining on
all of us!

Atlantic Boulevard pioneer, Frank H. Furman, Inc.

Insurance has been serving Pompano Beach since 1962


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Back in 1956, young Frank
Furman came to Pompano
Beach for a job with Bob
Bateman. By 1962, he was
ready to launch his own busi-
ness.
With his wife, Martha Jane,
he opened the doors to Frank
H. Furman at 1314 E. Atlantic
Blvd.
"People congratulated us
for moving west of Federal
Highway," Furman says. "At-
lantic Boulevard was a two
lane road that ended at Dixie.
It was strictly a residential
street. You could have a ball
game in the middle of the
street and not be interrupted
by traffic."
The Boulevard and Fur-
man's business have never
stopped growing. Though
he started with a single story
building, Furman had the
foresight to plan for a fu-
ture elevator installation and
additional floors. Furman
Insurance is now a three story
building that houses a staff
of 60, generating insurance
sales of 100 million dollars.
The real estate division was
closed in 1996. There are now
two additional Furman Insur-
ance locations in Orlando and
Atlanta.
Chairman and CEO of the
firm, Furman still puts in
12 hour days between work
and volunteer commitments.
Martha Jane was active in the
agency for 20 years and still
serves as treasurer.
"Our daughter Jane's
husband, Dirk DeJong is the
company president," Furman
says. 'Our son has his own
insurance agency in New
Hampshire and our daughter,
June is an executive in the
Virginia education system.
We have six grandchildren. Of
course we hope some of them
will join us in the business,
but at this point we are uncer-
tain of their futures."
Furman's civic involvement
over the years is legend and


the walls of his office are cov-
ered with framed certificates,
awards and plaques given to
him in appreciation for years
of service. In addition to his
civic, economic and cultural
support, Furman has served
as president of the board of
directors at John Knox Village
for 30 years. He says, "I'm
honored to have served this
CCRC or Continuing Care
Retirement Community which
is still considered one of the
top communities of its type in
the country. In fact, my wife
and I have a villa on the lake
in the Village which we will
occupy soon."
Though he is a gradu-
ate of Davidson College in
North Carolina, he has a long
board affiliation with Florida
Southern College in Lakeland,
Fl. where he was awarded an
honorary doctorate in De-
cember of 2002 for his public
service.
Dirk Dejong
President of Furman In-
surance, Inc. for 16 years,
Dirk DeJong has been with
the corporation for 21 years.
He heads up an umbrella of
management and sales areas
in three major departments:
Personal Lines, Commercial
Lines, Life, Health, Group,
Accident, Financial Planning
and Motor Sports division.
DeJong continues the
pioneer company's business
practices and growth, provid-
ing world class products and
services to clients. Corporate
offices are still in the original
Atlantic Boulevard location
which is now a three-story,
elevator building.
DeJong has created his own
impressive list of volunteer
involvements in the commu-
nity and in insurance associa-
tions.
He has many awards for
his service on boards and in
leadership positions in the
Florida Association of Insur-
ance Agents, the Independent
Agents of Broward County
and Insurance Company con-
sulting and advisory groups.

Hurrah for the Centennial!

As it began its 100th anniversary of incorporation, Pompano Beach had little
precedent for staging a centennial celebration. There are, after all, just a very
few municipalities in South Florida that have crossed the 100-year milestone.
Even though Pompano Beach's celebration is hardly over, it is not too soon
to pronounce it a huge success.
The initial concept of making the celebration a collaborative effort between
the City of Pompano Beach and a committee of volunteer residents was a good
idea, enabling the various programs and events to reach the conummnunity's grass-
roots, while drawing on the resources and expertise of the city government.
The volunteer Centennial Celebration Committee is a microcosm of Pom-
pano Beach; its membership hails from virtually every neighborhood in the city,
and is reflective of its diversity young and old, black and white, pioneer and
newcomers, professionals and homemakers. This has resulted in a series of
celebration events that provide something for everyone.
Pompano Beach residents have had the opportunity to listen to the Marine
Corps Band in concert, attend the Mayor's Centennial Prayer Breakfast, take a
guided tour of Pompano Beach's historic cemetery or participate in the dedi-
cation of the centennial plaque at the Pioneer Monument, to name just a few
centennial events.
The Centennial Celebration Committee took the common-sense approach of
working with local organizations to infuse into their events a commemoration of
Pompano Beach's 100t birthday. Perhaps the best example to this was the Tiger
Trail Festival held this past February. Thanks to Centennial sponsorship, the Ti-
ger Trail organizers were encouraged to dig deep into the heritage of Pompano
Beach's northwest community, preserving the memories and legacy of pioneer
families that have, in the past, been overlooked. At the same time, the organiz-
ers reached out to attract a broader audience.
As a result of these partnerships, the centennial celebration involved many
constituencies and reached more people than would otherwise have been pos-
sible. In fact, such has been the support that the centennial celebration has been
expanded into the fall.
Next up is the July 3rd extravaganza at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater.
On that evening, (the actual date Pompano was incorporated), we will celebrate
our municipal birthday with song and dance, video presentations and the cutting
of the city's birthday cake.
We should all thank Pompano Beach's city commissioners and staff, and
the hundreds of volunteers who have provided us with a high-quality series of
programs and activities to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime milestone. It has set
the stage for a brighter tomorrow.


A letter to the residents


from Mayor Lamar Fisher
As a fourth generation resident of Pompano
Beach whose great-grandfather signed the City of
Pompano Beach Articles of Incorporation in 1908,
S I can't begin to tell you how proud I am to be a
ii"-: -part of our city's Centennial Celebration.
It is an exciting time to be in a city with such
'rich history. In 100 years, we have grown from be-
< ,ing a small town to a major city in South Florida
with over 100,000 people. While we have expe-
rienced many improvements to the City of Pom-
pano Beach, your city commission has worked
Mayor Lamar Fisher very hard to insure smart growth that enhances the
community without overextending our vital resources.
I strongly encourage you to get involved with your community and attend
one of the exciting Centennial events to commemorate our city's birthday. The
Centennial Committee has been busy planning many exciting events includ-
ing a spectacular evening planned for July 3rd, the original day in 1908 that the
articles of incorporation was signed. The 100th birthday celebration on July
3rd will include a non-stop entertainment extravaganza taking you through ten
decades of music and dance with live singers, dancers and performers. This is
an event you don't want to miss! I look forward to seeing you there!


Pompano Past
Continued from page 1
Saxon, McNab, Smoak and Chapman,
to name just a few.
What were the original boundar-
ies? What and when were other
areas incorporated into the city?
When Pompano came into being in
1908, it encompassed just a little over
one square mile, centered just about
at the intersection of Dixie Highway
and Hammondville Road. With only
250 residents, it was no problem fitting
everyone inside these boundaries.
Many people do not realize that
until the late 1940s, Pompano's eastern
boundary was around NE 15 Avenue
- everything to the east was unincorpo-
rated and commonly called "no man's
land."
In 1947, the City of Pompano
merged with the beach and took in all
the land in between. More recently,
the city annexed other areas such as
Palm-Aire, Cresthaven and Pompano
Beach Highlands to create the current
city limits.
Who were the first officials?
Pompano's first mayor was John
R. Mizell. He was one of the new
town's older residents, having served
in the Civil War as a Captain in the 7th
Florida Volunteers. His unit was part
of the Confederate Army of Tennessee,
fighting at such battles as Chickam-
auga and Atlanta.
Others elected to serve the new
town were George L. Blount, town


clerk; James K. Peacock, president of
the city council; and council members
Edmund Rogers, Joseph K. How-
ell, Dexter Smith and A. W. Turner.
Turner would later serve as the first
sheriff of Broward County.
Name a few significant events
and people who had an impact
on this city.
Beyond the coming of the rail-
road and the town's incorporation,
milestones came for Pompano in 1899
when the first schoolhouse in town
was opened, 1907 when the Hillsboro
Lighthouse was completed, 1922
when its first bank opened for busi-
ness, 1926 when the original Pom-
pano race track opened (it closed just
a few days later), 1937 when William
L. Kester began building his wood-
frame "cottages" on the beach, 1939
when the new State Farmers Market
opened west of town, and 1952 when
Blanche Ely High School opened.
There have been many people
who have had a significant impact
on Pompano Beach. In my opinion,
the three most significant were Henry
Flagler, who started everything with
the railroad, William Kester, who
practically kept Pompano afloat dur-
ing the Great Depression and whose
civic and charitable efforts helped
establish many of our community's
organizations and facilities, and
Blanche Ely, whose tireless striv-
ing for equal educational rights for

Seafood World, Lighthouse Point


".1


- .*


Nt- ~


In 1976 Joy and Hugh
Ganter opened Seafood
World in Lighthouse Point.
After many years in the
Bahamas, they had a clear
ideal of the kind of restaurant
they wanted, and that focus
has never changed. Seafood
World serves the freshest sea-
food in a relaxed and friendly
atmosphere where recipes are
simple and tasteful. Sauces
and spices enhance, but don't
overpower the seafood.
As the restaurant grew, it
expanded to provide a source
of fresh seafood to a growing


customer base. This created a
need to develop better sources
for the kinds of seafood prod-
ucts, in particular the island
products such as conch and
stone crabs, that have made
Seafood World a local legend.
This led to the opening
of Seafood World Wholesale,
which today is a thriving
part of the operation. Man-
aged by sons, Chris and Troy,
they believe that no one can
compete with their delivery of
the highest quality products
to other restaurants, markets
and exporters. The standard


'-


is simple; it has to be go
enough to be served atS
food World Restaurant.
While the restaurant
wholesale divisions grev
so did the demand for ca
ing services. What began
small and simple is, after
investment in state of th
equipment, now a top no
catering service offering
riety of menus from sea
to barbecues, delivered
white linen gourmet pre
tions.
Seafood World Res-
taurant, famous since 19


for its fresh Bahamian style
seafood and its stone crabs,
now serves its fresh seafood
in many more ways and styles
than in the past. The same
boiled fish, stewed conch,
conch chowder, pigeon peas
and rice are still mainstays on
our menu, but upscale cuisine
such as Sesame Seared Ahi
Tuna with seaweed and cala-
mari salads, shrimp scampi
over linguini, and Mediter-
ranean style cobia abound as
well. While the paper plates
are long gone, there is still
the same friendly atmosphere
and genial employees greeting
patrons at mealtime.
Seafood World distrib-
utes the freshest seafood
ood produced throughout the
Sea- Caribbean Islands. Enjoy our
fresh seafood and fine meats

Bahamas, the British Virgin

exports a full line of products
from seafood and meats to dry
goods and equipment.
We began building
relationships throughout the
Caribbean since Papa Hughie
arrived in Freeport, Bahamas
in 1967. These relationships
have enabled us to import the
finest lobsters, stone crabs and
conch.
Seafood World products
are also distributed to first
class restaurants and whole-
salers locally and nationally
including South Florida, the
Florida Keys, Las Vegas, Cali-
fornia, and New York. If we
are not importing the product
ourselves, we source it direct
from our friends in
the industry.

Financial Freedom


SPECIAL TO THE CENTENNIAL

Chris Rabold, is a Re-
verse Mortgage Specialist for
Financial Freedom working
in South Florida since August
of 2005.
My wife, Nancy, and I
moved from New York, where
we lived for 25 years in New
York City and Bridgehamp-
ton.
We grew tired of the cold
and the rat race and wanted
to go to warmer climes. I am
originally from Dayton, OH
where I attended school.
I went to college on a
golf scholarship at Western
Kentucky University. Af-
ter college, I became a golf
professional and spent my
winters working at clubs such
as the Jupiter Island Club and
summers teaching'at several
clubs in the metropolitan area,
where I was a PGA Mem-
ber. after eight years on the
links, I left to begin a 21 year
career in the financial services
business, the last eight as a
financial advisor with Morgan
Stanley.
A good acquaintance
introduced me to Financial
Freedom and reverse mort-
gages in 2006. I immediately
joined the firm and have since
been one of several loan of-
ficers with Financial Freedom
in South Florida.


I believe it is one the best
and most important products
for to seniors to ever come
on the market. It allows
homeowners 62 and older
to access the equity in their
homes without ever having
to make a mortgage payment
and allows them to stay in
their homes as long as they
want while retaining title to
their property. As with most
people, their homes are usu-
ally their largest asset, but
also the most illiquid.
This product helps elimi-
nate that illiquidity and "pays
them back" after all those
years of making a monthly
mortgage payment. They can
use the money anyway they
choose. They may take it in a
lump sum, a line of credit, a
guaranteed monthly income
or a combination of the three.
It depends on the individual
situation, which is what
makes a reverse mortgage so
valuable and unique.
Baby boomers turning 62
this year, now have a chance
to make their financial situa-
tion a little more comfortable
and allow them to spend their
retirement years with greater
financial security.
If you would like to find
out if a Reverse Mortgage is
right for you, contact me a

Intracoastal Waterway and
the Atlantic Ocean, Classic

a landmark on Pompano
Beach's famed strip since
1991. As we celebrate the

"Everyone's like family,"
Mrs. Heinze said. "I love that
feeling that you won't find
anywhere else."
As a coastal community,
Pompano Beach attracts
residents who love the water.
That's true at Classic Resi-
dence by Hyatt, where light,
airy apartments overlook the
sparkling Intracoastal or the
blue expanse of the Atlantic.

Pompano
Past
Continued from page 6
Pompano's black students led
to greater rights for all.
But there were many oth-
ers whose names are impor-
tant parts of Pompano Beach's
heritage, many of whom are
memorialized in local street
names: Sample, Blount,
Lyons, McNab. Rolle, Wiles,
Hammon, again, just to name
a few.
How did we become Pom-
pano Beach?
Until 1947, Pompano's
eastern town limits stopped
west of Federal Highway.
The town considered the area
part of the Pompano com-
munity, but felt no need to
annex it and then provide city
services to the small and scat-
tered population.
During the 1940s there
was a small, but growing,
number of residents who lived
on the beach. Denied the op-
portunity to become a part of
Pompano, the beach residents
took advantage of lax state
incorporation laws and estab-
lished the town of Pompano
Beach in 1945.
On June 16. 1947, the two
municipalities merged and the
City of Pompano Beach came
into being. In reality. little
changed.


Have you written
other books on history?
What part of the history
of Pompano Beach had a
memorable impact on you
as a writer?
I have written Broward
County: A Contemporary
Portrait, Images of America:
Fort Lauderdale and Light-
house Point: The First Fifty
Years. I have just completed a
manuscript for the centennial
history of Pompano Beach
to be published and available
later this year.


To me, what makes
Pompano Beach's history
unique, certainly compared to
the other subjects I've written
about, is the significance of
families and the continuity of
relationships over time. Quite
a few of Pompano Beach's
current business, political and
civic leaders are members of
families that were here in the
pioneer days. It's kind of like
the old saying, "The past is
not dead, it's not even past."
Such is the case in Pompano
Beach; the past is all around
us.

A brief stint at the Univer-

to have a good time, and then
he returned home to run his

Growing up in Lyons

schools and graduated with

Politics played a small
part in his early life. His dad,
Garland, now 91 and still

Hardin started creating
change by being an advocate
for the city. "I let the business

level. I promoted the city."
And things did get mov-

efits of what's been started.
At the right time, we'll move
forward," Hardin said. He
sees the current economic
downturn as an opportunity to
fine tune the future "without

When he is not involved
with city business, running his
own business or tending to his
twin two- year -old boys, he
is at a Rotary Club meeting or
fishing on his brother-in-law's

Why did he enter poli-
tics? "I was always keen
on community service," he
said. "And like Rotary says,
we should put service above
self."

where the fireworks were

fireworks weren't the only fo-
cus of the day at the stadium
though. Back in the day, when
we had demonstrations by the

dogs and sodas. We had a day

so that families could come

participating in their commu-

were shot off right after dark,

Ivan J. Smith represents a family of Realtors and dedicated

members of the greater Pompano Beach community


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
If anyone has had an
eagle's eye view of Pom-
pano Beach and most of her
changes, it has to be Ivan J.
Smith.
And he's a walking ex-
ample of what happens when
plan A gets moved aside for
plan B.
He sits atop the Rayvan
Building on Atlantic Boule-
vard and A1A. His walls are
filled with memories, awards
and pictures of his friends and
family-and that includes his
puppies. Talking about yester-
year is a natural for Smith.
Smith, who has either
brokered, bought or watched
most real estate in Pompano
Beach change hands, had
set his cap on finishing law
school after he graduated
from Fort Lauderdale High
School in 1948. He went on to
the University of Florida.
After his second year,
Smith joined the U.S. Coast
Guard where he served for
two years.
By then, he had met and
married his wife, Gene, and
the summer was facing this
young couple.


Smith decided he would
work all summer to get some
cash to take care of his wife
and child on the way and then
go back to school for pre-law.
That's when the tide
changed.
Smith's best buddy in the
Coast Guard, Bill Weir, was
one of three sons of Milton
N. Weir. Weir, a Gulf Oil vice
president. Weir, then retired,
and his sons formed M.N.
Weir & Sons Real Estate.
Bill and his brothers con-
vinced Smith to try his hand
at real estate while he was
waiting to return to school.
That summer, Smith was
the top sales person with
over 125 lots sold including
lots that became the Cove
Shopping Center in Deerfield
Beach.
Smith never looked back
after that. He realized that
South Florida was catching
the eye of developers, and
Pompano Beach was ripe for
,development. In 1969, Smith
was president of M.N. Weir &
Sons.
Then Weir & Sons moved
to Boca Raton and became the
Arvida Corporation, one of
the companies that developed
that city.

Dairy Queen expands to


a new location in Pompano Beach


By Judy Wilson

Dairy Queen owner Sal
Biviano is in the business
of building memories, like
the ones he has of walking a
mile or so with his family for

ice cream when the DQ was
located in the Beacon Light
Shopping Center. Sal was
12 then. A few years later, in
1976, his dad Onofrio pur-
chased the store and operated
it until two years ago when
Sal, 47, took over. Trained
as a CPA and with years of
corporate experience at JM
Family, Sal was ready to re-
enter the family business.
Earlier this month, Ono-
frio died, and Sal noted his
passing on the Dairy Queen
marquee. "It said 'Goodbye
Mr. B. We will miss U,'" Sal
said, "So many of our old
customers came by to express
their sympathies."
On May 1 the familiar
red-roofed Diary Queen in
the Shoppes at Beacon Light


was shuttered and Sal moved
up Federal Highway to a
formnner Texaco station at NE
29 Street. The move was
beneficial in lots of ways. The
store is more visible from the
highway. It is easier to drive
in and out. There is room for
a drive thru which has created
a "phenomenal" amount of
new business, and there is a
covered patio where custom-
ers can relax with a sweet
treat, a chili dog or a BBQ
sandwich. Now located on the
west side of the highway, it is
also within walking distance
for man\ families.

The patio area which seats
about 30 is the one thing Sal
was adamant about when
he changed locations. It has
become a popular place for
birthday parties. People bring
balloons, a few decorations,
order a cake, and voila, instant
celebration.
"I could have had more
parking or I could have had a
bigger store, but I was definite
about the patio. I love to see
people having fun. It allows
them to sit and have some

Sal has doubled the size
of his store; it is now 1,200

doubled his staff which num-

with training his employees,
many of whom are students

McNab descendant, Ken Arnold, local chiropractor


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Chiropractor Ken Ar-
nold's approach to chiroprac-
tic care at the Arnold Chiro-
practic Health Center, focuses
on structural, nutritional and
emotional issues.
The body is healthy when
structural, biochemical and
emotional aspects are harmo-
niously balanced, he explains.
Many of his current
clients are seeking help for
stress-related issues.
"Sometimes stress has an
emotional cause, leading to
pain and suffering. Sometimes
we look at spiritual issues,"
Arnold said. "Usually we get
a good result."
Most of his patients are
experiencing back or neck
pain. Some have problems
with ankles, joints, hips or
shoulders.
If the same emotional is-
sues keep coming up, Arnold
refers the patient to other
doctors.
In the spiritual area,
"It may be someone going
against the beliefs they were
raised with. They may need to
reevaluate or restructure their
lives," Arnold said. In such
cases he would refer them to
their clergy.
"I have no problem saying
'I can't help,'" Arnold said.


U


"If I can't help them in two or
three visits, I tell them they
need to see someone else. The
body can heal itself, but the
patient needs to take the ini-
tiative to get better," he said.
Arnold's office is at 2118
E. Atlantic Blvd.
His office hours of 8:30
a.m. to 1 p.m. allows him
to spend his afternoons as a
volunteer baseball coach. He
coaches the American Le-
gion teams and the Pompano
Beach Youth All-Star team.
During the school year, he is
assistant coach of the baseball
team at Pompano Beach High
School.
Arnold said his base-
ball players often experi-
ence problems with elbows,
shoulders or back, sometimes
from stress or overwork. He
tells them, "Coca-Cola is not
a natural product like water
that you should drink 24-7.
Carbonation rots calcium sites
in the body."
Arnold graduated with a
doctor of chiropractic degree
from the Life Chiropractor
College in Marietta, Ga., in
June 1964. He opened his
Pompano Beach office in
1987.
He and his wife Michelle
have two sons, Ryan, 18, who
just graduated from Pom-
pano Beach High School and
played on the baseball team,


and Dylan, 15, who will be a
freshman at the high school.
Michelle is an intensive care
nurse at North Broward Hos-
pital.
Ken is a past president of
the Pompano Beach Rotary
Cub and a member of Ameri-
can Legion Post 142. He
serves on the board for the
Haunted Trail, a Halloween
event with proceeds going to
the Dynamos.
The Haunted Trail takes
place on the grounds at his
house in the 1700 block of
East Atlantic Boulevard,
once home to his great-great
grandfather Harry McNab.
At one time it was the closest
house to the beach. Ken and
his family moved in when his
grandfather Ken Walker died
a year ago.
Harry McNab came to
Pompano Beach in 1898 at
age 17 after a freeze destroyed
the family citrus grove near
Orlando.
He operated the post of-
fice on the east side of Lake
Barbara. He farmed with his
brother Bob. In the early years
Harry ran a grocery store and
built the city's first movie
theater, both in the "Old Pom-
pano" commercial area just
east of the Florida East Coast
Railway and north of Atlantic
Boulevard. The family had
the city's first auto and its first


electric lights.
In 1922, Harry was an or-
ganizer and vice president of
Bank of Pompano, the city's
first. In the 1930s he built
some of the city's first apart-
ment houses.
The brother's homes were
completed just in time for the
1926 hurricane.
Harry operated a pack-
inghouse, was a contractor
and operated a general store
on Flagler Avenue. Harry was
also a member of the City
Council. He died in his two-
story brick home on Feb. 15,
1956.


The McNab family name
is preserved on a road, school
and park. Harry donated the
land next to the park where
the chamber of commerce
is located on East Atlantic
Boulevard, just east of McNab
Park and east of Arnold's of-
fice.
Ken is the son of Robert
M. and Betty Jeanne (Walker)
Arnold. His father was an
attorney and Small Claims
Court judge. His mother was
a teacher. They had two other
children, Mary and Robert Jr.,
both of Pompano Beach.

airport with him so that we
would not "bother" our moms.
Those were some great times
we had at the airport. While
Mr. White would be work-
ing on building his airplane
we would be out exploring
the area, time after time. We
weren't worried about secu-
rity, or cars or criminals. We
were just having fun. Play-
ing with the gopher tortoises,
climbing the trees, chasing
the foxes and exploring the
woods is something that I
wish my sons could experi-
ence today...
Flash forward a few years
to 1983 and the 75th anniver-
sary of our city.
I was still just a young
rascal with my friends, but
we were all determined to
grow a beard so that we could
become part of the "Brothers
of the Brush" as they were
called. We were not long out
of high school and wanted
to make our mark on our
town. Unfortunately, most of
us had not yet gotten to the
point where we could grow a
"brush" on our face so we had
to give way to the real "Broth-
ers" who built the playground
at the beach by the pier.
When I think about my
two sons today, at 2 1/2 years
old, I'm frightened about the
future for them in Pompano
Beach and the world. There's
a lot of bad things that could
happen to them. But -when
I stop and thilk about my
life so far, I realize that my
parents were just as scared
about me facing the "big, bad
world" when I was growing
up.
Pompano Beach was a
great place to grow up in and
it still is!
I'm glad that I've got two
sons who are going to experi-
ence "my town" as they grow
up. I'll help them along the
way!

Knox Pools,

By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Knox Pools is a familiar
name to most people in
the Pompano Beach and
Lighthouse Point area.
This family-owned
company has been serving the
community for more than 20
years.
But the story behind Knox
is more than a top-notch
company that takes pride in
keeping swimming pools safe
and water sparkling. This
company really began with a
romance.
Donna Knox, in the 80s,
was working as a Coral
Cadillac car "jockey," the


a reliable recreational resource for over 20 years


person who takes cars to the
repair areas. She met Bill
Knox, an ASE mechanic with
Coral Cadillac.
"We got married in 1987,"
says Donna. "So we decided
to do something different."
They were smart. They
lived in a community where
pools were commonplace and
service was in demand.
Bill went on to become a
certified pool operator, and
his new wife went along
with him to work on pools in
Lighthouse Point, Deerfield
Beach and Pompano Beach.
Over the years, many of
those first clients have stayed
with this dedicated couple.
Donna remembers helping

Before long, they opened
their first store at Shoppers'

They outgrew that store
in 1992 and moved to their
present location at 3825 N.

"We moved here in 1996.
We bought the building in
2000," Donna says.
With thousands of client
names in their computer
files, Donna and Bill haven't
changed the way they do
business.

tell the story of the people
who came, here, what they
accomplished, and the
legacy they left for future
generations," she said.
Many blacks came to
Pompano Beach as farm
workers from the Bahamas,
South Georgia, North Florida,
South Carolina, Alabama and
West Florida.
Armbrister's husband's
family came to Pompano
Beach from the Bahamas in
1912. Her husband's father,
David C. Armbrister Sr.,
served in World War I with a
group of Bahamian men. He
died at the age of 102.
Hazel moved by herself
from Perry in Northern
Florida to Broward County in
1950 and to Pompano Beach
in 1958.
While working at a rental
agency she met her future
husband, David Armbrister
Jr., and married him in 1958.
They moved to the home she
still lives in.
"He came in the office
for a friend. We had a nice
conversation, and then we
conversated for the next
27 years, 6 months," she
quipped. He died in 1986 at
the age of 59.
Starting at the age of 14,
her husband worked as a
chef for the Webster family
at a restaurant on Atlantic
Boulevard and A 1 A. Later
he was a chef at the Silver
Thatch Restaurant, owned
by former Congressman and


Broward County Sheriff Ed
Stack. It's now the site of the
Silver Thatch Condominium.
His last job was as foreman
for Tompkin & Sons Lawn
Care.
They had one daughter
Lydia Wilson, who lives in
New Orleans.
Armbrister raised more
children than her own.
"Six came through the
doors, banged on the
refrigerator door and still
do," Armbrister said. "They
still come. I love them."
Armbrister finished high
school at the age of 24, one
of the first to receive a GED
diploma from Dillard High
School. She attended Miami
Dade Community College and
received a bachelor's degree
in early childhood elementary
education from the University
of South Florida in Tampa.
She taught at Charles Drew,


Learn oDUI;:
Seamanship,
Anchoring,
Boat Handling,
Docking, PFD's,
VHF Radio, PWC


Sanders Park and Markham
Elementary schools, all in
Pompano Beach from 1966
to 1999 when she retired. She
loved teaching. She says she
set goals for herself, and she
had reached them. One was
to get all her children through
school.
When she first started
teaching at the age of 34,
Pompano Beach schools
were segregated. They were
integrated in the late 1960s,
first by integrating the
teachers, then the students.
Since retirement, Armbrister
has remained active in
many community activities
and taken on some new
challenges.
She is a member of the
Friends of the Library at the
Northwest Branch Library and
is on the committee planning

A member of St. Nicholas
Episcopal Church and the
Daughters of the King, she
has served on the vestry,
the Altar Guild and taught
Vacation Bible School.
Armbrister serves on the
city's Air Park Advisory
Committee and the Historic
Preservation Committee.


She doesn't mind saying
she's 76, noting that the Bible
says, "If you live right, you
will get 70 years." Armbrister
adds, "Anything over that is
gravy on the potatoes."
What does she want her
legacy to be? "That my life
was not in vain, that I did
something for somebody
somewhere."

By Erich Zlanabitnig
SPECIAL TO THE CENTENNIAL
The builders of 1200
Hillsboro Mile, an Atlantic
Ocean to Intracoastal
Waterway enclave of only
29 luxury residences, are so
confident that buyers will
love their new home, they are
offering a buy back guarantee
with few restrictions in
addition to many value-added


buyer incentives.
1200 Hillsboro Mile is
located just north of Pompano
Beach in Hillsboro Beach
and offers three bedroom
residences in two three-story,
Tuscany inspired buildings.
Each building commands a
rare viewpoint overlooking
either the Atlantic Ocean or
the Intracoastal Waterway.
According to Erich
Zlanabitnig, real estate


broker for the community,
the response to the waterfront
location, the over-sized
floor plans and the sterling
reputation of the builder has
been very positive," he said.
"and has shown us that with
the right combination of
design, floor plans, amenities
and a desirable location
people will buy, whether
they are in the market for
a permanent residence or


second home."
The newly completed
Intracoastal building includes
a designer decorated model
home showcasing the
waterfront lifestyle available
here. The building exterior
glows with the colors of
Tuscany with Naples yellow
walls, Sienna and white
trim. Architectural details
include covered, wrought iron
balconies with graceful white
columns,' colorful awnings
and barrel tile roofs.
1200 Hillsboro Mile offers
a choice of three-bedroom
floor plans up to 2,232 square
feet and include kitchens with
Sub-Zero and Thermador
appliances, master suites with
walk-in closets and marble
bathrooms with whirlpool
tubs.
Nine foot ceilings, grand
foyers, balconies overlooking
the views and third bedrooms
that convert to media rooms
or libraries provide a lifestyle
of old-world elegance
enhanced by luxury and
convenience.
In addition, all the latest
technological advances will
be built into each home
including state-of-the-art
security systems, concealed
fire protection systems,
high speed cabling to all


television outlets and "home
run" configuration for
telephone, internet and data
communications.
The oceanfront building
will have the beach just
steps away from the entry
and the Hillsboro Beach pier
a scenic stroll to the north.
The Intracoastal Waterway
building overlooks the calm
waters and the parade of
yachts passing by. Dockage
will be available for two
boats up to 50' for visitors
and overnight guests. The
community will also feature
an outdoor pool/spa area
with a pool side cabana, a
community media and fitness
room.
1200 Hillsboro Mile
enjoys a remarkable location
in Hillsboro Beach, close
to the boutiques, dining
and entertainment of Boca
Raton to the north and Fort
Lauderdale to the south.
The community is located
on one of the last stretches of
oceanfront and Intracoastal
land available for home
building on the fabled
Millionaire Mile of Hillsboro
Beach and offers a rare
opportunity for a casual yet
elegant beach lifestyle.

Dairy Queen


Continued from page


Ir. r *I |
Earlier this month, Onofrio died, and
Sal noted his passing on the Dairy
Queen marquee.


Business at the Dairy Queen
begins to boom right after
school when cars pull up with
kids eager for a snack. The
later it gets, the busier it is,
Sal said.
While some Dairy Queens
offer burgers, sandwiches
and fries, Sal kept to his
original menu adding only
cakes. There are still the nine
different sundaes, 27 flavors
of Blizzards, 11 shakes and
malts, soft cones, waffle
bowls, banana splits, Oreo
Brownie Earthquakes, Peanut
Buster Parfaits and a newer
addition, the moolatte coffee
described as Nirvana in a
cup. In short, the confections
that made Dairy Queen a


household name since it began
65 years ago are available at
Sal's vibrant red, white and
blue store.
"This has my father
written all over it," Sal said,
noting his clean, bright
establishment. "The kids
(employees) are going to put
his name on a bronze plaque
here."
Owned by corporate giant
Berkshire Hathaway, Dairy
Queen is part of the American
landscape. On this landscape,
it is probably the oldest
family-run retail business in
the neighborhood a place Sal
Biviano hopes will leave his
young customers with their
own pleasant memories.

Temple Sholom shares over 60 years of history with a city of many denominations


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Temple Sholom began in
the 40s with a dream shared
by 12 Jewish adults in Pom-
pano Beach who called them-
selves The Pompano Jewish
Circle. They met in each
other's living room and saw
themselves as the beginning
of a Jewish community. The
only survivor of that circle,
Roz Karneol remembers it
well.


"We were comprised of
the Hirshman and the Gold-
berg families," she says.
"There were Abe and Lena
Hirshman, Moe and Goldie
Hirshman, Florence and Ed-
die David and my husband,
Herman Karneal and me. The
other four were Dave and
Gussie Goldberg and Harry
and Fay Goldberg."
She continued. "Perhaps
because our Christian friends
all had churches, we were ea-
ger to identify ourselves as a

Jewish community.
Some of us worked
in Pompano's
famous Farmers'
Market where we
met Jewish brokers
and buyers who
came for the sea-
son. They lived in
Miami Beach and
other cities south of
us unaware of our
existence here in
Pompano. When
we outgrew our
living rooms, we
began to meet in
the chamber of com-


merce. We advertised
our existence."
According to Karneol, the
catalyst for Temple Sholom
was Dr. Tobin and his wife
Lee, who settled in Pompano.
She remembers him saying,
"It's time to stop looking for
donors. We must raise money
ourselves, buy some land and
build our own temple."
Karneol says, Every Jew-
ish person in the community
was involved and excited.
We bought the land where the
temple now stands."
She names some of those
Jewish pioneers who gave to
this effort tirelessly and gen-
erously. "There were Harry
and Fay Goldberg, Gert and
Bernie Millman. Irene and
Martin Reidich, Abe and Bess

Cor, Bebe and Eddie Kodish,
Sidney and Lorraine Harris,
Isabel and Stanley Rubel and
Dr. Harvey and Myra Saff."
Karneol credits Richard
Koff, a building contractor,
for helping Lou Wolfe, the ar-
chitect who designed Temple
Sholom. Completed in July of
1960, Temple Sholom congre-
gation increased to almost 300
members.
Dr. Harvey Saff
remembers No Room
at the Inn
Past President, Dr. Harvey
Saff and his wife, Myra, came
to Pompano from New York in
1957 as a young married cou-
ple. Dr. Saff says, "1 was the
first podiatrist between Sunrise


in Fort Lauderdale and Delray
Beach, and I was the first on
the staff of North Broward
Medical Center. We were
here when we broke ground
to build the Temple. The first
service we held was conducted
by a visiting Rabbi who came
up from Miami.
He decided to stay over-
night, but when he went to
check into Pompano Beach
hotels, he faced sign after sign
reading, "Restricted Christian
Clientele.".
Saff cohflned, "He even-
tually stayed in a small beach
motel owned by the Ran-
dophs, a Jewish couple. The
Rabbi was so incensed by this

Outdoor Entertaining
and Decorating Ideas
-Scatter platters of appetiz-
ers around the entertaining area.
Guests will move around the yard
to sample everything and keep the
party going.
-Lay low. Don't worry about
being over the top impressive.
Your guests will be more com-
fortable and at ease if you just
keep things simple.
-Pair wines with foods at each
station, placing white wines and
ice in galvanized buckets or other
large containers to chill. Large
planters work well here, too, and
don't forget to have corkscrews in
each area.
-Place potted plants and flow-
ers in simple terra cotta pots. No
fancy arrangements necessary
just choose simple, but sturdy
flowers to avoid wilting if it's hot
outside. Bunches of baby's breath
can be very striking in galvanized
buckets.
-Lots of white candles set into
planters and pots are very striking
once the sun sets. Surround can-
dles with small stones and add a
little water for that beach feel.
-Don't forget the music. An
MP3 player, live music, whatever
you please. Music always helps
set the mood.
-Edible flowers with their
bright colors add a touch of sum-
mer to any party. However, make
sure that all flowers are truly ed-
ible. Some simple additions: nas-
turtiums, roses, marigolds.

John Knox Village Retirement Community


Many residences at John Knox Village enjoy a peaceful setting along the shores
of Lake Maggie. Here pictured are several Lakeside Villas, with Heritage Tower
beyond.


SPECIAL TO THE CENTENNIAL
John Knox Village, the
continuing care retirement
community located here
in Pompano Beach, is
now celebrating its 40th
anniversary with a full year
of events, activities and
programs showcasing the rich
heritage of the Village from
its opening in 1967 to the
present day.
During its 40 years, John
Knox Village has grown into
its present 64-acre campus
and is currently home to 1,000
residents with a staff of more
than 600 employees.
The Village concept began
in 1967, when Dr. Mack R.
Douglas, a Baptist minister
from Margate, gathered a
few friends and proposed to
develop a retirement home
for senior citizens. The plan
that evolved called for the
construction of a group of
cottages, each containing


three apartments, to be leased
to a senior individual or
couple for the balance of their
lives.
The initial design of Baptist
Village, the original name for
John Knox Village, featured
villas completely surrounding
the lake. The Village concept
caught on so well, it was
decided to build the 3-story
East Lake at the east end of
the lake to accommodate
additional residents. Shortly
after, another 72 villas were
built at South Gardens.
The early years of Baptist
Village, were quite successful.
At the time, there were very
few life-care facilities in the
country. Many seniors had
tired of caring for their own
houses, wished to enjoy the
South Florida climate, and
have the security of nursing
care.
By 1972, the Village
spanned 50 acres and included


the three-story East Lake,
72 Lakeside Garden Villas,
93 South Garden Villas, 210
apartments in Cassels Tower,
and the Village dining room
and Health Center complex.
The rapid expansion
of the late 60s and early
70s also brought financial
challenges to Baptist Village.
Dr. Kenneth P. Berg, who
operated 19 non-profit life-
care facilities throughout the
country with his Christian
Services, Inc. Management
Group, was hired to manage
the community.
Under Dr. Berg's leadership,
the name was changed from
Baptist Village, and John
Knox Village was officially
incorporated on Feb. 6, 1978.
That same year, plans were
finalized for the construction
of the ten-story 200-unit
Village Towers, an additional
60 beds in the Health Center,
and a second floor addition to
the Health Center as the area's
first assisted living complex.
The Chapel/Auditorium
building opened in 1989.
This facility includes several
meeting rooms, offices, the
fitness center and a multi-
purpose room which serves as
concert hall, exhibition center
and chapel with seating for
300.
As the Village grew, so
did interest in the concept


of assisted living. In 1990,
the Village opened a 62-bed
assisted living facility to
replace the original smaller
facility.
What had been assisted
living was converted to an
additional 54 Health Center
beds, and yet another addition
to the Health Center was
built to accommodate a new
therapy center.
The last major addition to
the Village was completed
in 2004 with the opening
of Heritage Tower. This
ten-story residence features
120 apartments, with well
appointed social areas on each
level. As part of the Heritage


As part of the life-care agreement, residents at John Knox Village are guaranteed
unlimited care at Gardens West the Village's assisted living facility, and nursing
care in the Village's Health Center. [Photos courtesy of John Knox Village]

erected on the north end of the
property with access from the
renamed John Knox Village
Boulevard.
The Village is a not-for-
profit Continuing Care
Retirement Community or
CCRC, that provides a full
range of life-care services
for senior residents aged 62
or over. John Knox Village
is located at 651 SW Sixth
Street in Pompano Beach,
just east of 1-95 and south
of Atlantic Boulevard. For

Continued from page 22

discrimination, he contacted
the Associated Press. The
story went out on the wires. It
ran in many papers including
the New York Times."
Dr. Saff reported the inci-
dent to the Pompano Beach
Town News. As a result the
local paper ran an entire series
titled, "No Room at the Inn"
with photographs of the actual
discriminating hotel signs.
The Anti Defamation League
got on it and within the year,
restricted hotels were no
more."
Dr. Saff says, "I personally
have never experienced any
anti-semitism in my practice
or social life. I belong to
many service and commu-
nity organizations because I
believe in giving back to and
being involved in my com-


munity."
Temple expansion
In 1968 Temple Sholom
added a Hebrew School in-
cluding classrooms, assembly
hall and library.
In 1974, a new Sanctuary
and social hall were com-
pleted.
In 1993, Rabbi Ivan Wa-
chmann became the spiritual
leader of the congregations.
In 2004, Temple Sholom
welcomed Cantor Hesh May-
ersdorf.
In 2007, Temple Sholom
became the new Jewish Cen-
ter at Temple Sholom, offer-
ing a warm and caring envi-
ronment to enrich the faith
of all Jews through spiritual,
religious, educational and
social activities, each deliver-
ing the best of innovative and
traditional ideals. President
David Greenblatt heads an
active Board of Trustees and


all committees to create a
"Jewish second home."
Rabbi Dr. Ivan
Wachmann
Rabbi Wachmann, Temple
spiritual leader, has more
than 50 years of experience,
serving as a rabbi and teacher
of congregations in Ireland,
Britain, Scotland and the
United States. Rabbi Wach-
mann also lectures in Kaba-
listic Studies. In May 2006,
he was selected as adjunct
professor at the University of
Wales.
Asked if he had any
special message for Pompano
Beach as it celebrates its
Centennial, Rabbi Wachmann
said,
"I equate the birth of
Temple Sholom 60 years
ago to the birth of a baby.
Our Temple is fortunate that
the early pioneers dedicated
themselves to the establish-


ment of a spiritual center
which has since been the focal
point for thousands of Jews.
"Those still with us have
been spared to be a constant
inspiration and reminder not
only of past achievements,
but also as a stimulus to
greater heights as we meet
new challenges. He named
Roz Karneol. Irene Reidich,
Dr. Harvey and Myra Saff,
Mona Silverstein, Sidney and
Lorraine Harris, Stanley and
Isabel Rubel, Ed and Bebe
Kodish and Ruth Zimmerman.
"We are indebted to not
only our own members who
hold high office in Pompano
Beach, but also to our non-
Jewish friends who have made
it possible, even in times when
it was not popular, for us to
flourish and prosper.
"The Jewish population of
Pompano Beach will be for-
ever grateful to our Jewish and
non Jewish dignitaries who


have insured that all ethnic
groups are part of Pompano
Beach's family.
"Our wise sages inform us
to pray for our neighbors and
the greater community and
to be involved in helping the
great city of Pompano Beach
to flourish economically,
culturally, spiritually and
socially."
The Pelican thanks Tem-
ple Sholom for its contribu-
tions to Pompano Beach, the
city celebrating 100 years of
economic and cultural
growth with respect for all
colors and religions within
its boundaries.

Sherman Electric team serving Broward for over 40 years


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Sherman Glenn Nicks,
II, 40, is a licensed master
electrician, president of
Sherman Electric, Inc., a
Pompano Beach native and
long time resident.
After graduation from
Pompano Beach High
School, Sherman began his
apprenticeship in the study
of electricity with ABCI,
or Associated Builders and
Contractors Institute.
"Because my father passed
away after my high school
graduation, I found myself
starting a new job as an
electricians' apprentice. That
started my career of 22 years
in this business," Nicks says.
The apprenticeship was a
four-year program. Nicks
continued his education
for another three years
to complete his master
electrician certification.
He graduated with honors
and later came back to teach
the program.
Looking back at the seven
years of study and the
subsequent examinations,
Sherman laughs and says, "I
could have been a dentist."
But plenty of folks are glad


he chose this profession,
including Michael Colon,
president of Triton Properties,
development partner for the
Shoppes of Beacon Light in
Lighthouse Point.
"We've been using
Sherman for over five
years for virtually all of our
electrical sub contracting on
our commercial property,"
he says. "and he has always
come through with flying
colors."
Most electrical projects
require drafting a master plan
which Nicks enjoys doing.
"However," he says, "every
job needs a plan which must
be presented to the city before
an electrician can get a permit
to proceed. And permits are
part of almost every job."
Nicks' advice to
homeowners focuses on
safety. "Be sure you use a
licensed electrician. Even
simple jobs can create hazards
in the home if done by
unqualified people. Sherman
Electric is a State Certified
Contractor, which means
we have met even more
qualifications," he says.
Nicks says there's very
little in the electrical service
department that he and his
crew cannot do.


4i


The Sherman Electric Crew stands ready to keep Pompano Beach homes


With many years under
his 'electrical' belt, Sherman
suggests a simple home
inspection, especially
for older homes. These
inspections can be performed
quite inexpensively compared
to the cost these undiscovered
hazards could cause.
"If your lights begin to
flicker or you notice arching
or sparking, that's a good
reason for an inspection,"


Nicks says. "Arching
happens because of loose
or bad connections causing
overheating and can lead to a
fire."
He adds, "Faulty electrical
wiring is the biggest cause of
home fires. In comparison,
bad plumbing won't burn
down your home."
Sherman Electric currently
has five employees and is


power. [Photo courtesy of Sherman Elec-

ready to provide dependable
electrical services for all your
electrical needs.
Nicks does take time off
for fishing, and recently the
Sherman Electric team took
part in the Pompano Beach
Fishing Rodeo. The Sherman
Electric shop and warehouse
is located at 1100 NW 6 St.

After 36 years Nu-Turf is still in full bloom


By Mike d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Three decades after
William and April Murphy
bought a Nu-Turf franchise.
Their landscaping busi-
ness is still offering South
Florida residents a place to
satisfy their lawn and garden-
ing needs. And like much
of Florida those lawn and
gardening needs have changed
over the years.
Located at 2801 N. Dixie
Hwy, Nu-Turf offers a large
selection of native and non-
native plants and trees. With
recent drought conditions,
Nu-Turf has seen a shift to-
wards native species.
"People want low main-
tenance and drought tolerant
plants. They've learned you
can't just buy a cute little
bush and expect it to stay a
cute little bush," said Barbara


Murphy, manager at Nu-Turf.
Nu-Turf sells a variety of
natives including Doon Sun-
flower, Railroad Vine, Wild
Lime, Silver Button Wood,
Coco Plum and Simpson
Stopper. Though natives offer
better defense against drought,
and other conditions, there
are some drawbacks. "A lot
of the natives go really well,
problem is they're not always
the showiest of plants," said
Melanie Oliver, landscape
designer for Nu-Turf.
While drought may not
be affecting many other
businesses, it's being felt at
Nu-Turf. "I think the drought,
along with the economy, has
taken a toll. Expendable
income is limited and plants
aren't as important as food
and gas and putting money
into the more essential needs,"
said Oliver.
Drought restrictions do


April Murphy, owner of Nu-Turf, stands proudly in front of a new crop of shrubs and flowering plants.


Grand opening of Nu-Turf Garden Center in 1987, when the business moved form the original location at 33rd Street


and Dixie Hwy. Dixie Hwy. was only two lanes back then.


allow exceptions for new
plants. "Most people don't
realize you're allowed to
water new plantings every-
day, except Friday, for the
first 30 days," said Murphy.
Oliver suggested that
Bromeliads and Succulents
were very adept at dry
conditions and will hold up
well. She also suggested
Bahia grass, which grows
well. "People don't like the
aesthetic look but it's very
drought tolerant. Everyone
currently has, for the most
part, St. Augustine grass."
Nu-Turf also offers


organic fertilizers and other
products, something Oliver
says is gaining in popularity.
"We have lots of different
kind or organic fertilizers,
and a full line of organic
pesticides, herbicides, and
fungicides."
Besides being more envi-
ronmentally-friendly, Oliver
said that organic fertilizers
are better for growing fruits
and vegetables, ultimately
providing more nutrient rich
food. For more information
call Nu-Turf at 561-392-
9089.

Chamber's mission: continue to bring vitality


to the business owners of Pompano Beach


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
The Greater Pompano
Beach Chamber of Commerce
was established by one of the
city's most influential and
successful pioneers, William
L. Kester, who came to town
in 1923, opened the Farmers
Bank and gave land for the
library and a park. Kester also
sold much of today's public
beachfront to the city at dis-
counted prices as he and his
family owned a considerable
amount of the shoreline. The
famed Kester Cottages drew
winter tourists to the beach
and provided housing for the
farmers and railroad workers
moving to the area.
In 1948, Kester was instru-
mental in forming the Cham-
ber which was housed in one
of his wood-frame building
at Atlantic Boulevard and NE
20 Avenue. Within a year, the
Chamber had moved nearby
to its current headquarters at
2200 E. Atlantic Blvd. Robert
Pool was the first chairman of
the board.
Today, the Chamber serves
600 members and continues
to sponsor two of Pompano's
favorite events: The Seafood
Festival held the last week in
April and the Boat Parade,
the oldest Christmas afloat
procession in the country. In
addition to the usual network-
ing opportunities, the Cham-
ber gives its members access
to the Pompano Ecdnomic
Group, or PEG, its economic
arm, which promotes both
new business and the reten-
tion of jobs.
PEG holds an annual CEO
breakfast, teacher appreciation
luncheon and reception for


government leaders. The gov-
ernmental reception was held
earlier this month at The Isles
with more than 200 people in
attendance.
This unusually active
Chamber also holds a Fine
Food and Wine night each
year and two golf tourna-
ments. The Fine Wine and
Food Wine was changed last
year to an event called Esprit
de Corps which honors out-
standing business persons in
the community. It will be held
in November at Palm-Aire
Country Club.
The golf tournament has
been reduced to one outing
which will be held in October
and is being chaired by Mari-
anne Miccoli.
Guiding the Chamber
through more than a decade
of growth was Doug Everett
who was at the helm until two


years ago when he retired.
Everett came to town from
Florence, SC in 1993 when
the area was coming out of a
recession. He found a wide
divide between the Chamber
and Pompano's elected of-
ficials and vowed to makes
changes.
He defined three problems
immediately: the perception
that Pompano could not pro-
vide its residents with a good
education, that business was
locked in a battle with local
government and that the city's
image and reputation needed a
major overhaul.
Substantiating his observa-
tions, Florida Trend magazine
had published a 1993 study
that ranked Pompano 27th out
of 28 Broward municipalities
in commercial vacancy rates.
In fact, Pompano's vacancy
rate had grown 16 percent


in that year. Additionally, he
found that 1,200 business li-
censes were not renewed from
1992 to 1993. The city also
had the highest tax millage in
Broward, 6.85 mils. "I said
there has got to be a problem
here," Everett recalls.
Working closely with then
city manager Bill Hargett,
School Board member Bob
Parks and several corporate
executives, Everett encour-
aged his members to support
reopening Pompano Beach
High School and cleaning
up the area around Blanche
Ely High School. The courts


had closed PBHS and many
parents refused to send their
children to Ely, located then in
a slum neighborhood. The fact
that the school situation was
in disarray was discouraging
new business from setting up
here, Everett said.
Eventually, PBHS was re-
opened and the City of Pom-
pano Beach invested $12 mil-
lion in the Ely area to make it
safer and more presentable.
Although as Everett says,
"Big ships turn very slowly,"
Pompano Beach did begin a
turnaround. The growth of

Chamber


Continued from page 33
new business brought an addi-
tional $200 million to the tax
base each year and for 10 con-
secutive years, millage rates
were reduced. The growing
tax base meant that streets,
parks and other improvements
could be made.
"We had to generate the rev-
enues for our streets, parks,
etc.," Everett said. "A lot of
nice things happened and the
Chamber was a party to that."
Most of the growth was in
commercial development and
today Pompano is home to a
vast number of corporations,
clean technology companies,


service and manufacturing
firms situated in business
zones on the west side of
town.
"I love a challenge. That's
what I am about," Everett
said. "So this was a wonderful
time for me. I'm very proud
of what happened during my
tenure."
Even before he came to
town, Everett remembers that
the Pompano Chamber was
considered by other chamber
executives to be an innovative
organization and a "show-
piece" for other chambers.
After Everett retired in June
2006, his go-to person Jean
Stubbs remained on the scene
as interim president until

Bob Harpest, Chair
she became president of the
Oakland Park/Wilton Man-
ors Chamber of Commerce.
Stubb's forte was member-
ship and in the 13 years she
worked for the Pompano
Chamber, she instituted a
number of initiatives to attract
members: the quarterly power
lunches, the business to busi-
ness expo, the new-member
gift bags stuffed with good-
ies and special offers and an
ambassador program that is
still going strong.
The 90s were years of great


growth for this Chamber,
because as Stubbs now says,
"we worked on it!"
Bob Harpast is currently
the Chamber chair. An auto
dealer executive, Harpast was
brought onto the Chamber
Board five years ago and
chaired many special events
before assuming his two-year
stint at the top.
"The Chamber brings every-
one together to network and
do business," Harpast said.
"And now we are enhancing
our efforts to retain our mem-
bers. We'll be shaking hands
and urging our members to
come out and meet people. If
we can sustain our member-
ship, we are making progress
in these hard times."
To make it easier for busi-
ness people to participate,
the Chamber will offer more
networking opportunities on
weekends and evenings. "We
still need to make it easier
for small business men and
women to get involved,"
Harpast said.


Garner


Continued fom page 1
Many of his remembrances
have been excerpted from
Tales in The Pelican and other
area publications, but his own
personal favorite is titled "The
Night the Bogennan Lost his
Gun." Bogerman was O.T.
Banks.
The 14-year-old Garner
and his pals had a somewhat
contentious relationship with
this old timer.
One Halloween they stole
his .38 caliber pistol and then
turned it in at the police sta-
tion.
The next day, it was re-
turned to its owner, having
been found, the cops said, on
a desk at the station. Nowa-
days, Gamer notes, such a
prank would not go unnoticed,
or unpunished.
The pistol lives on as one of
the five most famous firearms
of Pompano, Garner said.

Flori. .. Shores Bank headquarters in Pompan..

Florida Shores Bank headquarters in Pompano


Steven D. Hickman
PRESIDENT & CEO
FLORIDA SHORES BANK
Florida Shores Bank of-
ficially opened its doors
as Pompano Beach's only
headquartered, full-service
commercial bank on Decem-
ber 8, 2006. The sharehold-
ers, management and Direc-
tors of Florida Shores Bank
chose Pompano Beach for its
headquarters primarily due
to the large population base
(more than 100,000 residents)
and vibrant business commu-
nity (more than 12,000 small
businesses). Many of the
employees of the bank were
born, raised and educated in
Pompano Beach. We are very
active in the local community
and committed to support our
local consumers and busi-
nesses through unparalleled
customer service and atten-
tion.
As Pompano Beach enters
its "Second Century", every-
one from the team at Florida
Shores Bank looks forward to
being a part of the continued
growth, progress and prosper-
ity of our great City! Once
again,
Happy Birthday, Pompano
Beach!


Pompano Beach Celebrates its 100th Birthday with free "Dancing Thru the Decades" Show!


July 3rd at 8 p.m. at the
Pompano Beach Amphithe-
ater, residents will mark the
city's 100th anniversary of
incorporation with an eve-
ning of music and dance.
In the past 100 years,
the city has taken on many
changes.
Dancing Thru the Decades
will celebrate the cultural
changes seen through music
and dance.
The event will consist of
professional musicians and
dancers who will create an
original entertainment ex-
perience. The event is being


produced by award winning
event producer Mike Sipe.
D.J. extraordinaire T-Roy
will transition guests through
the years as the entertainers
provide a show from can-can
girls of the early 1900's to
appearances by Elvis Presley,
Frank Sinatra and his Rat
Pack. Musical influences like
the Four Tops, the Tempta-
tions, the O'Jay's, Diana Ross
and the Supremes will be
heard from the Motown era of
1965. The music will continue
through history with a grand
finale that includes interna-
tional dancers and singers


showcasing today's modem
music.
The free show will also in-
clude a special video presen-
tation on Pompano Beach's
past, a chance for the public
to participate in a recreation
of the signing of the papers of'
incorporation as well as the
cutting of Pompano Beach's
giant birthday cake sponsored
by Publix.
Organizers hope that
residents will take part in the
event to celebrate the city's
Centennial.
The free tickets are now
available at the Emma Lou


Olson Civic Center 1801 NE

concerned about the pool's
color, a deep green. Donna
says when the crew arrived,
not only was the pool green
but it had popped out of the
ground.
That happens when people
drain their pools. "What hap-
pens," explains Gary Steele.

"There's always ground water.
The pressure of the ground
water underneath the pool
pushes the concrete shell of
the pool out of the ground
unless you cut weep holes
through the concrete so the
water pressure will be re-
lieved by coming into the pool
and equalizing the pressure."
Steele adds that only a
professional should ever drain
a pool. Sometimes pools pop


up as high as three feet, tear-
ing out the plumbing and the
deck with it.
"It's a huge expense," he
says.
The Knox Pools team cares
for about 300 pools weekly,
but their store offers numer-
ous items that are designed
for poolside living.

equipment keeps customers
returning for more than the
chlorine refill jugs.
And Knox Pools helps and
supports pool owners who
want to care for their own
pools. At Knox Pools, clients
can have their pool water
analyzed at no cost and pick
up chemicals to keep the water
safely balanced.
Donna emphasizes how im-
portant that job is. "Chemical
balance is very important. Your
whole body goes into it. The
water needs specific chemicals
to fight bacteria that cause ear
infections or other bacterial
diseases."
Pompano Beach resident,
Debra Asher will attest to that.
When Asher wanted a new
pool, she got lots of estimates.
But she couldn't find a compa-
ny to build the pool where she
wanted it. "I wanted to walk
out my back door and get right
into my pool. Other companies
said that was impossible. Bill


Knox, a state certified swim-
ming pool contractor, went to
the city and found a way for
me to have the pool the way I
wanted it," said Asher.
Now Asher takes her pool
water in weekly to have it
tested. She says it's worth the
trip even though other compa-
nies are closer to her. "And if
we go away, Knox takes care
of the pool for us," she adds.
The Knox family has lots
of reasons to celebrate the
Centennial in Pompano Beach
with their growing business
and number of happy clients.
Donna came to the city in
1972, and Bill grew up here.
"We have a daughter, Tonee,
a son-in-law, David, and three
grandchildren, Jay, Bobby
and Shelbee," says Donna.
"Pompano Beach was a good
choice for us. I am blessed
with many good friends, and
many of those are best friends
whom we met as clients."

Lutheran Church






Since 1962, our congregation has been
proud to call Pompano Beach "home."
Over the last 46 years of Pompano Beach's
first 100 years as a city, our congregation has
always had a geographical reference to our
location here in Pompano Beach in its name
first as "Ocean Drive Lutheran Church,"
and now as "Pompano Lutheran Church."
That reflects our mission and purpose to be
a neighborhood church in Pompano Beach,
where Pompano's people come to grow in
faith, hope and love and go out to serve
God by serving their fellow neighbors here in
Pompano Beach.
We look back with thanksgiving on the
blessings of the past 100 years and we look
forward with eagerness to the future we will
continue to share here in Pompano Beach,
our home.
