Pompano Beach

heads to its

centennial on July 3

By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Yes, it was the sweet pompano
fish that became the namesake for this
city that is counting down to July 3 for
its 100-year birthday.
It was a day of hope on July 3,
1908. Fertile soil, a tropical clime
and Henry Flagler's Railrbad [Feb.
22, 1896] turned farmers into entre-
preneurs overnight, and it made sense
to incorporate and form its own local
government.
The earliest pioneer families, the
Butlers, Mizells, McNabs, Samples
and Smoaks lived through the horse-
fly-sized mosquitoes, hurricanes, a
famous bank robbery and a Depres-
sion. Many of their children carried
on in Pompano eventually leading up
to next week's Centennial Celebration
at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre,

July 4 celebration in LBTS set for

all-day affair with parade


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
An entire day of old-fashioned
family fun is planned to mark July 4
in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
The "Beach Blast" starts with a
parade beginning at 10 a.m. behind
Town Hall, 4501 Ocean Drive. Resi-
dents and organizations are invited
to build a float or decorate a vehicle.
Prizes will be awarded for best pa-
rade entries. Prizes also will be given
for best decorated bike. For more
information, call parade organizer
Commissioner Birute Clottey at 954-
895-6595.
The parade will proceed north on
Bougainvillea from Town Hall to
Pine Avenue, east to El Mar Drive,
south on El Mar, west on Palm Av-
enue and north on Bougainvillea.
Activities for children and adults
are scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
at a new location, the new El Prado
Park at El Prado and El Mar Drive,


across A1A from Town Hall.
Twocan Blue, a five-piece band
from Aruba, will perform on a float
during the parade and at the party.
An amusement park is planned for
children featuring a giant pirate ship
bounce climb slide, pirate swing-
ing chair ride, kiddie ferris wheel, a
mountain climbing attraction, wave
runner water slide and twin spin. All
rides will be professionally supervised
and free. A professional classic car
show is planned for adults.
Party foods will be for sale, includ-
ing hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken
burgers, veggie burgers, watermelon,
soda, beer and wine.
Events culminate with a fireworks
show at 8:30 p.m. off Anglin's Pier on
Commercial Boulevard.
"We're going to have a humdinger
of a day," Commissioner Stuart Dodd,
co-chairman, said at a recent commis-
sion meeting. This is non-political,
and we welcome anyone who wants to

Broward County Fair at 11th hour

scrambles for permits for event


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
So far, it's a fair without a home, but
Broward County Fair spokesperson
Elaine Fitzgerald says whatever it
takes, "We're going to do it."
After losing its spot at the Fort
Lauderdale Stadium, Fair officials
returned to Pompano Beach, its former
home for many years.
Fitzgerald says the plans to run the
fair from Nov. 20 to 30 at the Festival
Flea Market on Sample Road seemed
seamless until the Pompano Beach's
zoning board of appeals denied fair
officials the right to waive parking
permits.
Last Tuesday, Keith Polikoff, the at-
torney working on the parking issues,
and fair supporters had planned to
appeal to the city commission to inter-
cede, but Polikoff was cut off after the
three-minute time limit. His appeal for
more time fell on deaf ears.
Fitzgerald says that the denial was
an 11th hour fluke that now has fair


officials anxious to clear up all con-
cerns.
Mayor Lamar Fisher said the denial
was a "safety issue." He added that
there was nothing the commission
could do anyway. "The city commis-
sion does not have the power to over-
turn the zoning board of appeals."
Sandra King, Pompano Beach
spokesperson, explained that fair
officials had met in February with
Broward Sheriff's Office and city staff
regarding parking and egress/ingress
to the fair grounds. BSO asked for a
traffic and site plan for the fair of-
ficials, but those plans have not been
received. BSO specifically recom-
mended denial of the waiver.
This week, Pompano Beach Com-
missioners asked city manager, Keith
Chadwell to meet with fair officials to
work out the problems.
"This is a very challenged location
[Festival Flea Market]. I'm not sure I
have all the data on the issue. Today is

BSO chief asks Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

residents to help locate special needs residents


LBTS seeks help in iden-
tifying special needs residents
in town
The Town of Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea and the Broward
Sheriffs Office are seeking
the help of citizens to identify
residents with special needs
who may need routine as-
sistance or when a hurricane
threatens to strike South
Florida.
Chief Scott Gooding said
a special needs resident could
include a senior or other town
resident with no immediate
family members in the area
who have trouble walking or
use a wheelchair; need a mi-
nor home repair they cannot
complete themselves; need
transportation to a doctor;
need housekeeping or person-


al care assistance; need legal
aid or other assistance.
A number of area pro-
grams, such as BSO's Elder
Link, are designed to help
local residents with transpor-
tation, social and other needs.
If a hur-
ricane threatens
South Florida,
all residents
in town will
be ordered to
evacuate. Resi-
dents with special needs face
an even greater risk of injury.
Since it is unlikely a
resident who needs assistance
will contact the Sheriffs
Office, Gooding wants any
resident who may know of
someone to contact BSO.

an opportunity for everyone
to air out all the unresolved
issues."
Chadwell spoke shortly
before this week's meeting.
"Our largest concern is pub-
lic safety. A parallel concern
is moving people safely in and
out of the location. I need a
firmer understanding of atten-
dence. I need to be confident
that I can get a safety vehicle
in and out of there. This is not
about the city not wanting the
fair in Pompano Beach," he
added.
"'We took it to the commis-
sion because it didn't seem
right not to have a Broward
Fair or its 33rd year. We want
to say Pompano Beach is the
home of the Broward County
Fair," Fitzgerald said.
Fair officials will not be
able to apply for a special
events permit to host the fair
until the parking issues are
resolved.
Meetings regarding the fair
began this week at city hall.
The Broward County Fair
was chartered in 1976 by the
Florida Department of Agri-
culture.

July 3 at 8 p.m. at the Emma
Lou Olson Civic Center, 1801
NE 6 St., Pompano Beach.
The event, Dancing Thru
the Decades will celebrate
100 years as defined through
the art of dance. Professional
dancers and musicians will
stage the "in" moves from the
1900's Can Can through Mo-
Town sounds and the newest
moves on the floors today.
Heart throbs like Frank
Sinatra and Elvis will mysti-
cally show up for the event.
This troupe won't miss a beat.
The July 3 celebration is pro-
duced by Mike Sipe,
The evening includes a
video of Pompano Beach's
History, a re-creation of the
signing of the city's incor-
poration papers and 22 sheet
cakes, each decorated with a
historical scene of Pompano
Beach. Each cake will feed
about 80 people.
The events of the evening
are all free and open to the
public.
The Centennial
Committee
Jerry Bowman, chair of
the committee appointed by
the city two years ago, says
this event is clearly a "once in
a lifetime celebration. I doubt
that I will ever celebrate 100
years of anything else in my
life," Bowman said.
Throughout the year,
Centennial events have taken
place in most local venues,
from the regular Saturday
Morning Green Markets,
Mayor's Prayer Breakfast to
last year's Yuletide parade,
and July 3 does not mark the
end. This party is going to last
throughout the year.
Dozens of local Cen-
tennial volunteers have put
together a calendar of events
that promotes and celebrates
the history of this 2nd old-
est city in Broward County.
Dania Beach is the oldest city


in Broward County.
And that's a story in itself.
When Pompano incorporated,
the new city was in Dade
County. The counties were
later remapped, and Pompano
residents found themselves in
Palm Beach County. But in
1915, the newest county, Bro-
ward, became the final home
to this busy little community.
Historically speaking
Bud Garner, the official
historian of Pompano Beach,
has written several books
about people, places and
events that are all part of the
composite of this city. Garner
describes vividly tales of the
infamous "Ashley Gang,"
robbers of the Pompano
Farmers' Bank around the
time of the Great Depression;
the agonizing story of the
day the "Alligator" pulled the
McNab boy into the "ditch."
The ditch was the Intra-
coastal Waterway, and a ditch

it was in those days. That
McNab youngster and his
young buddy were trying to
catch a swim on that fateful
afternoon. It was his friend
who literally pulled McNab's
head from the jaws of the ga-
tor. Getting the young lad to
the doctor's office took some
time as there were no cell
phones and few land phones
at that time.
Garner is responsible for
the living flavor of Pompano
Beach's history, and to this
day he continues to write
the Tales of Old Pompano.
Information on his books is
available at pompanohistory.

City officials from Mayor
Lamar Fisher to the city
commissioners and to the last

Committee, look forward to
every resident, young and
old, to make the show at this

According to an agree-
ment with Oriana, the ease-

Colon responded, "Calls
for pedestrian access are tied
into the town's master plan.
When developers give you
easements, they expect you to
do what you said you would
do."
"$1 million sidewalk must
be a 25 carat gold sidewalk,"
Clottey said.
"It's a boardwalk, not
concrete," Colon responded.
"This should be a top
priority for the sake of future
generations in town. We can't
lose that easement," Clottey
said.
Mclntee suggested Colon
contact the developer to see
if the town could plant sea
oats on the land and maintain
the area as a public, natural
walkway.
Colon said she has con-
tacted the Oriana developer in
the past.
"They are more than
willing to take the easement
back if we don't do a wooden

Colon said the town can

To be honored by one's peers
is the ultimate recognition. "That's
why I was so thrilled recently," said
Dr. Andrea Corn when the profes-
sional society, SEFAPP or Southeast
Florida Association for Psychoanalytic
Psychology, cited her for her outstand-
ing service to the community at its
15th annual 'Freud Amongst the Arts'
fundraiser.
Dr. Corn is well known in South
Florida for her professional advice
columns in the Miami Herald and
South Florida Parenting Magazine.
She is often a featured speaker at
public forums and on television when
the subject matter deals with child,
adolescent and family therapy as well
as sports psychology.
Dr. Corn made the move to LHP
just 2 1/2 years ago from Plantation
where she has had a practice since
1994. Her offices are now in Light-
house Point at 2040 E. Sample Rd.
in the Gateway Center, She came to
Florida from St. Louis as a teenager
and still remembers her own difficult
adjustment.
"The Midwest was very differ-
ent from the sophisticated, New York
influences I encountered at Miami
Beach High School. I turned my lone-
liness into sports, mainly tennis."
She never forgets her own search
for identity and years later with her
PhD from Nova Southeast University,
she began her career working with

She created and hosted a radio
program on 790 AM during which
teens discussed and shared sports
information, ideas and passions. "I


worked with 40 teen boys and girls.
We learned together," she says.

Does anyone worry about fire

suppression in LBTS? We do.


This is the scene at part two of last week's commission meeting in Lauderdale-By-The Sea. Only six
residents attended the meeting last Thursday afternoon where the commission awarded a contract
for fire suppression to the Volunteer Fire Department.

It was pretty clear that nobody wanted the job of putting out fires in Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea.
With no bids from Broward Sheriff's Office, Pompano Beach or Fort Lauder-
dale, the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea commission handed over that job to the town
volunteers--the same group that was ousted last year by BSO for "safety and
leadership" problems.
The 4-1 majority on the LBTS commission [Mayor Roseann Minnet vs.
everybody else] leaves little room for discussion of liabilities, equipment needs,
training and response time.
Other cities that had been solicited for the job did not respond.
Pompano Beach officials indicated that the town wasn't willing to spend the
money to build a permanent station for EMS services, and Pompano Beach
fire personnel did not want to be responsible for the welfare and lives of the
residents, tourists and business owners without a fixed station with emergency
equipment on the barrier island.
The picture above tells the story of growing apathy in the town where agendas
have been determined by this commission alone. Nobody came to speak for or
against the decision.
The main reason for hiring the town volunteers, who are paid for every fire,
training session or engine fill-up they attend, was money.
The annual budget for the VFD is $844,022. Commissioners recently agreed
to spend $1.77 million to purchase a motel just north of town hall for a new
public safety complex to house police and fire personnel. In late March, com-
missioners selected American Medical Response to provide emergency medical
services for $670,000 annually. Is everybody in this town asleep?


Broward County foreclosure

prevention panel issues final report

Twenty-three recommendations address foreclosures

SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Early intervention, creation of a foreclosure court or other dispute resolution
platform, an extensive consumer education campaign, expansion of required
notifications to borrowers paying foreclosures, a county-wide Model Ordinance
for residential properties in foreclosure, and counseling for homeowners in fore-
closure are among the recommendations included in a report from the Broward
County Foreclosure Prevention Blue Ribbon panel.
The 17-member panel was chaired by Broward
County Mayor Lois Wexler.
"We wanted to be as cost neutral as possible and re-
focus dollars that are already there. My intent is to move
forward and meet quarterly to continue this effort," said
Wexler. "I'm going to stay involved with the initiative
and make sure that we monitor the progress of the recom-
mendations."
The report cites data from Integrated Realty Informa-
tion Systems that shows the 1,127 foreclosure notices (lis
pendens) were filed in 2005, more than doubling to 2,736
in 2006 and increasing sevenfold in 2007 to 14,079. In Wexler
the first five months of 2008, the 13,944 foreclosure no-
tice filings have almost equaled the 14,079 filed for all of 2007.
"I'm happy to see the panel recommended a court registry to collect rents.
In the case of my daughter, she was given 20 days after Christmas Day to move
out of the home she was renting," said Commissioner Kristin Jacobs. "Tenants
of rental properties should be informed that they're living in a home that is in
foreclosure."
"Most of the time people are told to contact the lender and the majority
of the time they don't know who the lender is," said panel coordinator, Susan
Weiss. "Mortgages are bought and sold, and many times they don't know who
the lender is." Weiss is an associate director of real estate sales for Neighbor-
hood Housing Services.
With the Broward League of Cities taking the lead, the Foreclosure Preven-
tion panel recommends the adoption of a county-wide model ordinance for resi-
dential properties in foreclosure. Cities and communities in the unincorporated
areas would be encouraged to adopt the ordinance which will include language
regarding fees and assessments for a foreclosed property, streamlined notifica-
tion process, an emergency property management plan, aesthetic property main-
tenance, board-up properties and other impacts that foreclosed properties create
within a community.
In response to a request from Legal Aid Services of Broward County, the
Broward County Board of County Commissioners approved the formation of
the panel to deal with the mounting foreclosure situation in Broward County.
The panel first convened in March and developed 23 recommendations, which
were approved by the panel on June 18 and presented to the commission. The
commission officially accepted the report this week.

I didn't know that!

Values are dropping this year, so why did

my assessment go up?
Florida law sets Jan. 1 as the assessment date each year for determining
both value and exemption eligibility. While Jan. 1, 2008 is the date used for
setting your assessed value for the August 2008 TRIM Notice and Nov. 2008
tax bill, the value is based upon the market value for similar properties in the
same or comparable subdivisions during Jan.2, 2007 to Jan.1, 2008. If market
values continue to drop during 2008, resulting in lower sales prices, this will be
reflected on your 2009 assessment and tax bill. In a year when values increase,
those increases will not be reflected until the tax bill the following year.

Good Idea!

Ride free and eat for less in

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
For a limited time, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea residents, local visitors to the
town and tourists can ride the Pelican Hopper shuttle in town and save money.
Riders will receive a free token from the Athena-By-The-Sea Restaurant in
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. The token is good for $2 off breakfast, $3 off lunch
and $5 off dinner (only one token allowed per table).
The Pelican Hopper makes a loop through the entire town every 45 minutes.
It starts at the Publix Supermarket on State Road A1A and Pine Avenue and
heads south to Galt Ocean Mile in Fort Lauderdale before returning north along
A1A and El Mar Drive to Terra Mar Island, where it turns around and returns to
Publix.
The Pelican Hopper is supported by a grant from Broward County and is
free to all riders.

Relay goal is

surpassed
Deerfield's Relay for
Life raised $97,000 for the
American Cancer Society its
Chair Gordon Vatch said last
week. The figure exceeded
this year's goal by $17,000
and is a local Relay record.
The team bringing in the most
money was the Deerfield
Beach Chamber of Commerce
with $11,000, followed by
Deerfield Beach Elementary
School.
Contributing to the suc-
cess of the event were teams
from Lighthouse Point, part-

Deerfield. The Relay was held
in May at Quiet Waters Park.


Mango Fest committee getting its act


together after successful event


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
For the first time in many
years, the sun shone on
Deerfield's Mango Festival.
And even though event chair-
man Andrew Pratt had to bor-
row $50,000 from next year's
budget to pay this year's
expenses, the day produced
enough revenue to pay all
festival bills and return some
money to the city.
The 23rd annual event start-
ed in the hole owing $4,000
from 2007 for tents and
fences. Commissioners turned
down a request from Pratt to
let him take funds from the
2008 $115,000 festival budget
to pay the debt, and it was
eventually paid by the city
when the vendors threatened a
lawsuit.
With the $165,000 in hand,
the committee was able to
pay two lead singers who
performed Saturday night
to an estimated crowd of
5,000 to 8,000. Pratt said the
committee is going over its
finances this week, and he
feels it should be able to re-
turn $20,000 of the borrowed
funds. Commissioners loaned
the money with the under-
standing it would come out


of next year's budget which
would leave only $65,000 to
stage the event, impossible
even for a one-day affair.
This year Pratt said, BSO
costs were $24,000 and the
budget for emergency rescue
services was $8,000. The
contracts for entertainers
Shirley Murdock and Betty
Wright and their equipment
ran around $60,000.
Faced with the realization
that the three-day festivals
held in the past were costing
the city upwards of $400,000,
Pratt said this year was "a
learning experience." Budget
cuts in the recreation depart-
ment meant no city personnel
could work on the festival,
and the committee was left on
its own to find money spon-
sors. "This was what Vince
Kendrick, department head,
did for us before," Pratt said.
"This was dumped in my lap."
Pratt said now the committee
is putting together a sponsor-
ship package for major corpo-
rations. "We'd like to take the
festival back to three days,"
he added.
The Mango Festival, which
began as a homegrown event
with locally prepared food
and amateur talent, is now the
largest African-American mu-


sical venue in the area and at-
tracts an audience from Dade
through Palm Beach counties.
It is held on Dixie Highway
between Hillsboro Boulevard
and SW 4 Street. Pratt said the
majority of the attendees are
from out of town. "More local
people should come out," he


said.
In the recent past the festi-
val has been plagued by bad
weather. This year the day
was perfect, but crowds did
not gather until after 7 p.m.
"It may be that it is just too
hot," Pratt said.


Deerfield Beach deputies

snared in FBI sting
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
The two BSO deputies arrested this week by federal agents
for smuggling cocaine, diamonds and Krugerrand gold coins,
had performed their duties here without incident Deerfield
Beach Police Chief Jay Fernandez said this week.
Richard Tauber, 37, and Kevin Frank, 38, were working road
patrol at the time of their arrests. Tauber had a record of mis-
deeds and had been fired by BSO but later was reinstated. His
activities here drew no special notice the chief said, except for
a reprimand for using his police car to take his son to school.
Although he has not been fully briefed on the officers' illegal
activities, Fernandez said it appears all of it occurred outside of
Deerfield Beach.
According to federal prosecutors, Tauber and two friends
were charged with smuggling and Frankel with running surveil-
lance for one of Tauber's cocaine deliveries. Tauber later turned

Lighthouse

Point Hurricane

Preparedness
By Maggie Davidson
PELICAN WRITER
The bywords for this year's Hur-
ricane Season are "personal respon-
sibility."
All levels of government from
the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency to the Broward County
Emergency Operation Center to the
Lighthouse Point Fire Rescue De-
partment are stressing that residents
must be prepared to be self-suffi-
cient for at least 72 hours and up to
five days.
Fortunately, there are many
resources available to residents to





County Hurricane
Preparedness
Guide. Residents
received it early in June.
The Lighthouse Point City
website has a comprehensive list of
resources.
Among the many recommenda-
tions, residents need to consider
family and friends who have medi-
cal needs or are especially vulner-
able during a storm and what to do
with pets.
Everyone is advised to put
together a hurricane kit; there's a
checklist in the County's Guide.
Basically, be sure to have
enough water, food, and medications
to last for at least 72 hours. Re-
member, after Wilma all power lines
were down, and electricity was out
for quite a while.
Be prepared with gas in the car
and cash on hand. All traffic lights
and street lights will be out.
Be especially aware and vigi-
lant for safety hazards. Emergency
personnel will be stretched to capac-
ity. Be safe and take care of other
residents.

A landmark business, Kraeer Funeral Home and

Cremation Center has served the area since 1952


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Little did R. Jay Kraeer dream that
the funeral home he opened in 1952
would become a significant part of
Pompano Beach history!
The handsome white building at
200 N. Federal Hwy. is a landmark
standing for 56 years at the same
corner. It's the impressive, white
Kraeer house, not the street sign, that
identifies Second street on Federal
Highway. When R. Jay Kraeer and
his wife, Lorraine, began he was the
funeral director, and she became his
right arm, taking over the business
end of things.
"We were the first official funeral
home in Pompano Beach in 1952,"
says Marge Muth, director of com-
munity outreach who has been with
the company for 17 years. "Back then,
Federal Highway was a two-lane road.
We now have eight Kraeer locations in
Broward County, all located on major,
easy access highways."
She continues. "In December of
2006, we merged with Dignity Memo-
rial Funeral Homes, allowing us to
handle local and out-of-town burials
and cremations throughout the na-
tion and Canada. We have a number
of employees who have been with us
over 40 years. Now in their 80s, they
are still valuable.
"Bob Russell is R. Jay's nephew
who started here as a very young man
and still serves as a funeral director
and advisor."
Over the years, all Kraeer Funeral
Homes have been very active in the
community, sponsoring many fund
raising events from golf tournaments
to fashion shows. Most recently, Muth
was one of the Addiction models in a
Hospice fundraiser fashion show. She
admits, "Modeling for a good cause is
a fun volunteer effort."
Muth who served as Kraeer's Pre
Needs Manager for 13 years is now
involved in community outreach. Her
job to promote Kraeer's services often
has her doing seminars for churches,
chambers of commerce .and service


Marge Muth, director of community outreach, is a 17 year employee and a walking history of Kraeer
Funeral Homes. She is a firm believer in the value of Advanced Planning Services because she says,
"It freezes the cost of burials and saves families great emotional stress when they are least able to


deal with it." [Photo by Phyllis J. Neuberger]
organizations in the area.
Kraeer supplies calendars to 26
local churches of all denominations.
Kraeer offers many services
Asked about services, Muth
beams. "We offer it all," she says
enthusiastically. "Our claim to fame
is that we house your loved one from
the phone call alert to the grave. We
offer our own removal team with our
own trained employees. We have our
own crematory and central care facil-
ity right here in Pompano Beach. As a
member of Dignity, we have access to
cemeteries, funeral homes, mausole-
ums and niches for cremation. We are
able to arrange for scattering ashes at
sea for those requesting it. "
Some of the newer and popular
Kraeer services include a grief library,


preparation of everlasting memorials,
bereavement travel program, an ever-
after grief therapy program is offered
for adults and children. And an event
room is available to families who wish
to celebrate a loved one's life with
specific theme parties.
Preplanning is the smart
thing to do
All Kraeer Funeral Homes have li-
censed Advanced Planning counselors
in all locations to assist those who are
thoughtful enough to pre-plan ahead
for themselves and their families.
Muth can't say enough about the
value of preplanning and how it re-
lieves the stress, often felt by families
at the time of a parent's death. "It's the

lose the easement.
She said monies could
be taken from reserve funds
if necessary. She asked for
direction on whether or not
to include the $1 million for
the walkway in the upcoming
budget.
"If not," she said, "don't
make me waste my time lob-
bying people in Tallahassee
for funds."
Colon added she has
already has applied for $3
million for walkways.
"Could we just put up
a fence and keep it sand?"
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone asked.
In an earlier agreement
with Oriana developers,
the town agreed to accept
$1 million for "pedestrian"
improvements in exchange
for the town's approval of the
developers amended site plan.
Two years ago, Oriana
developers amended its origi-
nal site plan, but the amended
version was never approved
by the commission. The fire
marshal determined that
more width was required for
safety reasons. Oriana's width
extended into the area planned
for a pedestrian walkway.
Oriana agreed to pay the
town $1 million in mitiga-
tion fees, provided they could
move on with the "amended"
site plan.
It is not clear whether the
$1 million can be used for the
boardwalks. It is clear that
unless a boardwalk is con-
structed within two years, the
easement for the boardwalk
will be returned to the devel-
oper.
Colon's remarks intimated
that the funds could be used
for the boardwalk.
"There's a $1 million
bank account," Colon said. "If
we don't do anything other
than a boardwalk, will I lose
the easement?"
As a capital improvement
project, boardwalks and other
pedestrian-friendly walks
were added to the town's
master plan, but those im-


provements have never been
funded.
The $1 million "mitigat-
ed" funding is being held in
trust and will be released 30
days after the last certificate
of occupancy is granted for
the Oriana development. To,
date Oriana has not completed
all of its building sites.
During the workshop
session, Colon listed other
proposed capital improvement
projects:
A1A landscaping and
streetscape, a joint venture
with Florida Department of
Transportation; repairing the
Terra Mar bridge [$250,000],
a joint project with Pom-
pano Beach with each pay-
ing $125,000; townwide bus
shelters, a joint program with
Broward County that will cost
$85,000 this year and $93,500
the next year and town entry-
ways: $160,000.
Colon reported that the
town's debt service, $1.6
million, is down from $2.2
million last year.
Financing of these
projects will come from CIP
funds.

In fact, the nation's
environmental watchdog,
the EPA, has awarded the
Postal Service the Waste Wise
Partner of the Year award, the
agency's top award.
Americans discard over
two million tons of household
electronics each year
according to the EPA. Less
than twenty percent of the
e-waste is recycled. Most of
it winds up in landfills or trash
incinerators.
Since many of these
electronic items contain

improper disposal can release

of discarded electronics.
This company first sees if
the electronic item can be
refurbished and resold, and
if not, its component parts
are used to refurbish other
items, or the parts are further
dismantled and the materials
are recycled.

Corn
Continued from page 5
Board of 'A Safe Haven for
Newborns,' Corn has present-
ed papers, helped to produce
a video for teens and made
herself available for counsel-
ing.
She's a mentor in 'Wom-
en of Tomorrow,' a schol-
arship program started by
Jennifer Valoppi, formerly of
local channel six. As part of
this program, Corn mentored
eight, at risk, high school girls
for one year. "It was a suc-
cessful and personally reward-
ing experience," she says. "I
am currently a guest speaker
for this group, when needed."
"Children of divorces
are another area of concern
to me," she says. "I pre-
sented a paper to the bar,"
she explains, "stressing to
attorneys the importance of
developmental issues when
structuring visitation sched-
ules. I wanted to remind them
that each age and stage has
different needs. Later, I wrote
a paper with Howard Raab
which was published in the
Florida Bar Journal in June of
2007 on the same subject. It is
being used by judges and at-
torneys across the state. Right
now I'm involved with three
cases of infant visitation be-
tween the divorcing parents.
This is more important than
people realize. Infants need to
have a feeling of safety and
security in their lives."
Corn has a very ana-
lytic approach to nonverbal
and verbal communication
between parents and children.


She says, "For example, al-
leviating a child's hurricane
fears begin with the parent's
awareness of any change in
a child's eating, sleeping or
toileting behavior. Children
do not say 'I'm afraid;' they
alert us by changing behavior,
often in a regressive way such
as reversing potty training."
Her love of tennis and
interest in youth sports has
never faded. "Teaching
parents what is nurturing in
the sport experience has been
the subject of much of my
writing. Winning is second to
having fun and doing one's
best."
Married with two children
and two grandchildren, Dr.
Corn can still be found play-
ing tennis at the Lighthouse
Point Yacht and Racquet club.


IEa1w.~GeJ


She also snow skis, bikes and
does yoga. In addition to her
private practice, she teaches
sport psychology as an ad-
junct professor at St. Thomas
University. She remains active
in SEFAPP and in a more
recently founded nonprofit
called SOFAR or Strategic
Outreach for Families of
Army Reservists which offers
free mental health services to
returning reservists and their
families. She says clients find
her through referrals from
other professionals, patients
and the internet.
Thank you, Dr. Corn, for
contributing your knowledge
to so many worthy programs.

on Frankel and wore a wire
for a conversation that con-
firmed Frankel's involvement.
The investigation was initi-
ated by BSO and later investi-
gated by the FBI.
Sheriff Al Lamberti said
Tauber's long record of as-
sociating with prostitutes and
known criminals had given
his superiors reason to watch
him closely. Fired in 2000, he
was reinstated after arbitra-
tion.
Tauber had been with the
local BSO office about a year
and Frankel for nine months.
Fernandez said Frankel told
him he had been in the restau-
rant business in New York and
wanted to try police work for a
change.
Deputies capture
'peeper'
A young man accused of
attempted burglary has admit-
ted to being the peeping torn
that alarmed a Cove neighbor-
hood earlier this month.
Wesley Davis, 22, was


taken into custody June 18
after he led police on a foot
chase through the area around
15 Avenue and SE 7 Street.
Deputy Jonathan Brown,
who was posted on a ca-
nal bridge there because of
burglary complaints, noticed
movement in some bushes at
11:14 p.m. Approaching the
property he met a resident who
said he had seen a man come
from behind his neighbor's
residence.
BSO added helicopter
surveillance and chased Davis
through the neighborhood
where he was apprehended at
648 SE 12 Terrace and subdued
by K-9 dogs. The witness said
Davis was the man he had seen
leaving a property owned by
Michael Migatz, 1527 SE 7 St.
Davis admitted that he got
a thrill watching families in
their homes and said he had
peeped into 10 to 20 residences
in the past few weeks. Police
say Davis was attempting a
burglary that was thwarted by
police presence in the area. He
was also charged with resisting
arrest without violence.

CRA report calls for moving ahead on streets

capes, partnerships and mixed use projects


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
The Urban Land Institute, or
ULI and Technical Assistance
Panel, or TAP, presented a
final report to the Pompano
Beach East CRA last week.
Dr. Charles Bohl, director
of the University of Miami's
School of Architecture,
presented the TAP's findings
and recommendations.


Concerns highlighted
in the report included
making Atlantic Boulevard
more pedestrian-friendly,
addressing an increase in
the homeless population,
improving the appearance of
sidewalks and surrounding
properties, solving issues
of inadequate drainage and
multiple property ownership
of key redevelopment
sections.

"You're either going up
or going down. You're at a
pivotal point right now," said
Bohl.
Mixed-use development,
with parking in the rear,
which includes a mix of
restaurants and specialty
shops and more green space
were the goals of the report.
Bohl also talked about the
need to better utilize one of
the city's untapped resource,
Atlantic Boulevard.
"The road itself is an unused
amenity," he said. According
to the report turning Atlantic
into a "streetscape" would
encourage more pedestrian
traffic and ultimately
encourage more investment
in the area. Allowing greater


access to the Intracoastal, for
boat parades and other events,
was also a goal.
Bohl also touched on the
need to develop unused
portions of land, such as
empty parking lots and
vacant pieces of land. He also
emphasized the importance
of the city reaching out to the
business community, directly
and indirectly.
"There needs to be a signal
that someone cares and is
showing interest," he said.
Commissioners Charlotte
Burrie and George Brummer
expressed disappointment that
the commission wasn't given
a copy of the report sooner.

Lauderdale-

By-The-Sea

to start beach

patrol
For the first time in its
history, the Town of Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea will keep a
watchful eye on swimmers at
its beach.
Starting in July, the Town's
new Beach Safety Patrol --
comprised of firefighters from
the Volunteer Fire Department
-- will go on patrol to protect
beach-goers.
The commission in May
approved a $44,000 start-up
Beach Safety Patrol bud-
get. Half of the initial bud-
get,$22,000, was used to buy
two All-Terrain Vehicles,
which patrol members will use
to patrol the town's populated
beach.
Rip currents are a continues
threat to swimmers. The nar-
row channels of water, which
flow out past the surf, can drag
even strong swimmers into
deeper water.
Between 1989 and 1997,
an average of 21 people per
year drowned on Florida's
beaches in rip current-related
incidents. On average, rip cur-.,
rents account for more Florida,
deaths than hurricanes, tropi-
cal storms, tornados, thunder-
storms and lightning strikes
combined, according to the
National Weather Service.
"Our shoreline is full of
rip currents," Volunteer Fire
Department Fire Chief Robert
Perkins said.

Untamed. Exotic. Vibrant.
These are just a few of the words used
io describe Brazil. From its lush Amazon
r.amntorest to its thriving cities, Brazil is a
country teeming with life. And well worth
Brazil is the largest country in South
America and is roughly the size of the
c.'ntinental United States. While the lan-
guzge spoken there is Portuguese, its rich
culture has been influenced by Portugal,
Africa, Europe, East Asia and its own in-
digenous Indian people.
The country has five basic regions,
ea. h with its own distinct geographic and
cultural variations. The Northeast has
the greatest percentage of people of Af-
rican descent. The South and Southeast
are home to the majority of Brazilians of
European and Japanese ancestry, while in-
digenous peoples live mostly in the North
and Central-West.
But no matter where you go in Brazil
the sun-washed coasts, tropical rainfor-
ests, bustling cities or wide open plains
you'll find fabulous food.
With so many cultural influences,
Brazilian cuisine ranges from the simple
to the sophisticated, and blends flavors
from all over.
Feijoada is considered Brazil's na-
tional dish. It's a stew with black beans
and smoked and sun-dried meats, espe-
cially pork and smoked sausages. It's
served with traditional side dishes such as
orange slices, shredded kale, rice, cassava
meal browned in butter, and a hot pepper
and lemon sauce.
If you can't make it to Brazil this
year, you can bring a taste of Brazil home
any time. Here are some typical Brazilian
ingredients you can use to liven up your
meals:
Meats: Brazilian sausages, differ-
ent cuts of beef, pork tenderloin, chicken
thighs and drumsticks. Brazilian sausage
may be hard to find, so you can use cho-
rizo or other spicy pork sausages.
Tropical Fruits: avocado, banana,
coconut, guava, lime, passion fruit, pine-
apple
Seasonings: chili pepper, cilantro,
palm oil, sweat pepper
Sides: beans, cassava fresh fruits,
rice
For your next party, start off with cod
fritters as appetizers, then serve up some
King Prawn and Coconut Stew over rice.
Finish things off with fried bananas with
cinnamon sugar or a cachaca and lime
parfait. You and your guests will feel like
you've truly had a taste of Brazil.

"I would love to ask
questions, but we only got
this tonight," said Burrie.
Commissioner Barry
Dockswell suggested that
the city look into a previous
$5 million loan that the city
received from the county
as a possible way of paying
for at least some of the
redevelopment.
"It's not free money, but
time is short. We'll have to
get moving on that," said
Dockswell.
The city has already spent
about $900,000 of that
loan on the intersection
of Atlantic Boulevard and
Federal Highway.
Brummer wasn't sure
the loan was the best
way to help pay for any


redevelopment. "The
county has its own budget
problems. I don't know how
secure that loan is," he said.
Brummer also expressed
the desire to have more
information on how
the redevelopment plan
was going to be funded
and urged commission
members "not to forget the
economics" and that the
"price of ignoring it is that it
won't happen."
Bohl reiterated the
need for public-private
partnerships and stated that
if the city couldn't fund all
the redevelopment at once
it could be completed in
stages.
"I hope this will be the
final stimulus they need
to move forward," said
Rebecca Sway, Pompano
Beach Resident.

Hurricanes
Continued from page 8

Because Lighthouse Point
is east of US 1, residents are
required to evacuate under
Plan B, a hurricane category
3 and higher. The Broward
County Mayor will give the
evacuation orders.
All police, fire emer-
gency, and public works
vehicles will be off the roads
and moved to a safe location
when the wind hits 50 miles
per hour.
After the storm, person-
nel and vehicles will be
brought back into the city
to look for people who may
have medical needs and inju-
ries, assess property damage,
and maintain security.
During an evacuation,
Federal Highway will be


moving slowly. Residents
should use Dixie Highway
and 195. But residents
should not wait until the last
minute to get out. Plan to
leave 48 hours in advance.
After the storm, there
will be no ice, water, or food
available to be handed out
to residents, partly result-
ing from an over-estimate
of ice for Katrina victims in
August 2005.
Thousands of pounds of
ice 118 truckloads were
not used for Katrina.
Ninety-nine of those
truckloads were brought to
Florida for Wilma victims in
October 2005. The remain-
ing ice was stored in 22
facilities across the U.S. at
a cost of $12.5 million and
was finally disposed of July
2007, when officials felt that
the ice might be contami-


nated.
Another problem that
surfaced during Wilma was a
duplication of services. The
county was handing out ice
and water also
being supplied
by local stores.
Furthermore,
during a year
when budgets
are being cut severely, re-
sources are stretched thin.
To help residents in the
aftermath of a storm, the
state legislature passed a law
requiring certain gas stations
to be pre-wired for backup
generators.
Gas stations having at
least 16 fueling positions
located within a half-mile
of an interstate, turnpike or
evacuation route must be
pre-wired. They don't have
to keep a generator on hand,


but can rent one at the time
of the emergency. How-
ever, these stations are not
required by law to be open
after a hurricane.
The City of Lighthouse
Point encourages local busi-
nesses to have generators.
Both Publix stores have gen-
erators. Some gas stations
have generators.
Each year, the Florida
governor hosts a hurricane
conference. Lighthouse
Point Fire Chief David
Donzella attended this year's
conference and said that
"personal responsibility and
preparedness" were stressed.
Other topics discussed were
tidal surge and wind move-
ment. Donzella said, "There
is more education because of
Katrina, but the conference
couldn't emphasize enough
the need to get out and to be


self-sufficient for 3-5 days."
He also said that residents
should not expect services
for at least 72 hours.
Craig Fugate, director
for Florida's Division on
Emergency Management,
was also at the conference
and warned that a major hur-
ricane was not a question of
"if, but when," and residents
need to be prepared to sur-
vive alone for a few days.
For further information,
go to the Lighthouse Point
website: www.lighthouse-
point.com and scroll down to
Hurricane Season. Click on
the link that connects to the
information about hurricane
preparedness. Keep the
County's Guide on hand for
quick reference. Remember
to be prepared for at least 72
hours. Be prepared and be
safe.

Zest two limes and juice them
all.
Pour sugar into small heavy-based
saucepan and add one tablespoon wa-

Dribble sugar syrup down side of

before it blends with yolks.
Once it is all incorporated, fold in

Pour mixture into pan; cover the
top with more cling film and then
freeze for at least six hours until set.
To serve, remove pan from freez-

MadHatter Tea Party draws Democrats to Pompano


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

The Democratic Women's
Club of Northeast Broward,
or DWC, held its 5th Annual
MadHatter's Tea Luncheon
on May 24 at Galuppi's
Restaurant at the Pompano
Public Golf Course.
About 50 Democratic
leaders, party members, and
candidates attended to help
the DWC raise money for
this year's election. Mag-
gie Davidson, president of
the club, chaired the meet-
ing, Mitch Caesar, Broward
Democratic Party chair, wel-
comed the guests and spoke
about Democratic politics,
especially the controversial
topic of how the Florida and
Michigan delegations will be-
seated at the National Demo-
cratic Convention in Denver
this summer.
Representative Kelly
Skidmore gave the key-
note address in which she
summarized the legislative
accomplishments during the
session that had just ended.
Skidmore was presented with
the DWC's Legislator of the


Year Award for her courage
and conviction in represent-
ing Democratic principles in
the Florida state legislature.
Attendees were encouraged
to wear hats in the tradition
of the annual event, and three
prizes were awarded to the
smallest hat, largest hat and
the most patriotic hat.
The DWC meets the third
Wednesday of the month at
6:30 p.m. at the Emma Lou

Supervisor of Elections
seeking poll workers
Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda C. Snipes is seeking
residents to work at polling locations throughout Broward
County for the Aug. 26 primary election and the Nov. 4 general
election.
The clerk's office is especially interested in residents to serve
as Voting System Technicians, or VSTs and as clerks at the
polls.
VSTs and clerks receive $200 for each election. In addition,
residents are needed to serve in other capacities, including
super clerks ($220), assistant clerks ($155), special deputies
($160), inspectors ($150) and electronic voter identification
(EVID) system operators ($150). Residents who are bi-lingual
(English/Spanish and English/Creole) are especially needed for
all assignments.
This year voters will cast paper ballots on DS 200 digital scan
machines.
Dr. Snipes estimates that it will take approximately 7,500
workers to staff the polls on election day. Nationally, the
federal, non-partisan Election Assistance Commission, or EAC,
estimates that it takes approximately two million poll workers to
conduct a national presidential election.

answer to the emotional stress
and over spending," she says.
"I have witnessed countless
families having to make deci-
sions on the worst day of their
lives as they face the loss of a
parent.
Many of our funeral
directors are faced with a
family of distressed, grieving
children who do not know
what their loved ones may
have wanted in the type of
burial, funeral, urn or casket
and the vital information,
often not known, must be
provided in order to get the
essential death certificate.
Preplanning eliminates all of
these problems, and it freezes
the cost of burial.

ing director and resident rela-
tions at John Knox Village, is

a strong advocate of preplan-
ning. "I did it with my par-
ents," he says. "I encourage
any resident in our Village
who has not prepared for this
eventuality to be prepared,
like a good Scout. Why would
you leave the people you love
with this kind of responsi-
bility? If you've taken care
of things, your family will


experience the relief and the
dignity of your decision, and
they will do the same for their
children."
Kraeer Funeral Homes
offers beautifully furnished
and cheerful chapels, visita-
tion and event rooms. Muth
explains that Kraeer has
always treated the life lived
by the deceased as one to be


celebrated.
"We've called our servic-
es, Celebration of Life for a
long time. In fact that descrip-
tion is now common usage.
All of our newer services are
the result of needs expressed
by families over our six and
one half decades in busi-
ness. We're always adapting


to and incorporating change
to adjust to the needs of the
world around us." Muth adds,
"Although cremation has
gained in popularity and is
now over 50 percent, Kraeer
offers many options to pro-
vide services to the families
for cremation.

"Ask



Lori"


Dear Lori:
My neighbor has moved and has been renting his property
for over one year. Your website has the condo listed as
having a "Homestead Exemption." What is the best way to
report this tax abuse without causing a problem with the
neighbor? R.G., Fort Lauderdale

Property owners who file false applications to obtain a
Homestead Exemption are breaking the law and they're making
you pay more in taxes each year. Why? Because the School
Board, the County Commission, your local City government,
and the various taxing authorities must fund their budgets by
equitably dividing the tax burden among all property owners
within their jurisdictions. If someone lies to lower his or her
taxes, someone else has to make up the difference.

Our office aggressively seeks to stop homestead fraud. Since
we formed our homestead fraud investigative units in 2005 over
14,795 fraud investigations have been resolved, resulting in over
19 million dollars in back taxes, penalties and interest and over
3 billion dollars of assessed value back onto the tax rolls. We
have worked with city governments, homeowners and civic
associations to help identify tax fraud.

If you know of anyone claiming Homestead Exemption on a
property he or she is not permanently residing in or if the
property is rented, vacant or merely a vacation home, we urge
you to contact our investigators in our Department of
Professional Standards and Compliance at 954.357.6900 or
www.bcpa.net/fraudform.asp and we'll check it out.

Once reported, our office will fully investigate each charge.
Property owners who cheat on Homestead can be back taxed for
as many as ten years, plus be required to pay penalties and
interest. While it is helpful and time saving that you speak
directly to an investigator, you may remain anonymous.


Sincerely,


If you have a question for the Property .4A,'raiw.'i, please email Lori at
I/.," t.,a/hpa iit or write to her at the Broward County Property Appraiser's
Office, 115 S. Andrews Avenue, Room 11I, Fort Iauderdale. FL 33301.

Disaster experts share knowledge and


advice at Deerfield Beach fundraiser


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
The most effective way to
prepare for a hurricane is way
before it happens and goes
far beyond lying in stores of
water and canned food. Mak-
ing one's home disaster proof
does more to mitigate the
effects of storm damage than
any thing else, say the people
involved in Hurricane Warn-
ing, the educational compo-
nent of Deerfield's Disaster
Survival House.
A number of these storm
experts, including National


Hurricane Center Director
Bill Read, were in Deerfield
this week with this message.
Appropriately, they partnered
with a newly opened eatery,
Hurricane Grill & Wings on
W.Hillsboro Boulevard. The
fast-growing dining chain,
managed locally by Mark
Tomei, donated $ 1,000 to
Hurricane Warning along with
10 percent of the day's food
and drink receipts.
What the audience,
crammed into 1,800 square
feet of restaurant space,
learned about hurricane
survival generally concerned
what to do before a big blow
strikes. And the good news
for property owners is that
there is much that can be
done.
H.J. Frank, owner of a
generator company, said the
single best way to mitigate
water damage from a storm is
with one of the new genera-
tors, smaller by 60 percent
that older models, capable
of far more output and much
more fuel efficient. These
energy sources will run the air
conditioner eliminating one
of the most damaging after ef-

Jim Mathie, Board chair of Hurricane Warning, speaks at Wednesday's fundraiser
at the Hurricane Grill & Wings in Deerfield Beach. Special guest was Bill Read,
Director of the National Hurricane Center.


fects of a storm mold. Most
homeowners insurance does
not cover mold, Frank said,
and now a permanent genera-
tor system can cost less than
$10,000, an amount that can
be financed. The homeowner
with a generator likely to
become quite popular, Frank
noted, able to supply hot
showers and a breath of cool
air to the neighbors.
Great strides have also
been made in hurricane panels
said Scott Kuntz, on the board
of the International Hurricane
Protection Association. A far
cry from the old metal shut-
ters, there are now a variety of
window protectors: clear im-


pact materials, steel screens,
woven fabrics, plastic netting,
etc. all code complaint for this
high velocity hurricane zone.
Often is it safer to stay in a
properly protected house than
to try to escape the storm and
risk being caught on the road,
Frank said.
And surprisingly, there is
good news on the storm insur-
ance front too. Scott Koedel,
CEO of Don Meyler Inspec-
tions, said windstorm mitiga-
tion inspectors are available
through mystatefloridahome.
comrn to do free onsite reviews
of eight construction features
in a home that can reduce in-
surance premiums by as much


as 75 percent. Typically,
homeowners find they have
been overpaying on their wind
policy by 22 percent.
The Disaster Survival
House, located on FAU Re-
search Park Boulevard near
1-95 and SW 10 Street, is
being outfitted with kiosks for
self-guided, educational tours
of the facility. The House was
originally built by State Farm,
largely because Deerfield
Beach was the first city in the
nation to be designated by
FEMA as a "disaster resistant
community."
With the designation came
a $1 million grant that help
put disaster mitigation in
place.
Bill Read noted that on
Wednesday, South Florida
was 25 days into hurricane
season, a season which has
been predicted to be ac-
tive due to global warming.
Actually, Read said, so far the
weather is only slightly warm-
er than normal so it remains
to be seen what effect it will
have on storms. All is quiet
now, Read said, although only
10 percent of storms occur in
June or July.
Denial is still the num-
ber one threat to hurricane
preparedness, Read said. It is
the one prevailing factor that
keeps people from gearing up
for a storm.
