CITIZENS APPRECIATION DAY While Pompano Beach Fire Fighters doled out hamburgers,
hot dogs and lots of water at the Pompano Beach Elks Lodge, Bob and Jaimi Wolfe were keeping
Baby Hali in the shade. The event was a thank you day for all the residents who had contributed to
the fire fighters fund raiser for the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Labor Day Marathon. Other
events at the Citizens Appreciation Day included dancing, fire truck displays and a K-Nine exhibi-
tion. [See more pictures on page 6.]

Lauderdale-By-The Sea Cham-
ber finds support in community
By Judy Vik
After hearing from several sup-
porters of the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
Chamber of Commerce, town com-
missioners nixed any plans to move
the chamber and its Visitor's Center.
Still they asked the chamber to
make do with less town funding.
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee, who had
suggested moving the chamber to
Commercial Boulevard, withdrew his
request last Friday.
At a budget hearing, several resi-
dents spoke in favor of the chamber.
Diane Boutin, general manager
of the Windjammer Resort, said the
chamber has done an admirable job
for many years and should be sup-
Former chamber board president
Sandra Booth said the chamber should
stay where it is (at 4201 N. Ocean
Drive) and receive funding. She said
it's the service that keeps people
coming back to the Visitor's Center,

soul of those who work at the Visitor's

Bill Davis, owner of the
Away Inn and Diner by the
Sea, said, "Businesses in town
absolutely need the chamber,
and the chamber needs the
Visitor's Center and funding.
He said the chamber has oper--
ated with a $35,000 subsidy
for five years without an
"Moving the center
to Commercial Boulevard
would be a horrible, horrible
mistake," Davis said. He
said Commercial Boulevard
suffers from a severe lack of
parking in season. The cham-
ber would need eight park-
ing places, which merchants
wouldn't want to give up.
McIntee said he had met
with chamber representatives
since initially proposing the
move. "I'm not going after
moving them. I'm not going
after their building," he said.
"The chamber is a benefit to
the community. You do have
my support," he said.
But he said he wants to
discuss reducing their $35,000
town subsidy for its Visitors
Center by 25 percent. He said
additional funds are needed
for improvements in town.
Clottey said that as a market-
ing professional she under-
stands the importance of the
chamber. She said the cham-
ber gets quite a bit more fund-
ing than $35,000 with their
free rent. But she believes the
business community and not
the commission should decide
where the chamber is located.
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone said he would like to see
the chamber be self-sufficient
"somewhere down the line."
Mayor Roseanne Minnet
said she supports the chamber
100 percent. She suggested
they look into getting grants.
Dodd said he has concluded
"it would be totally coun-
terproductive to move the
chamber." He has had conver-
sations with chamber officials,
and they were asking for a
five-year agreement with the
town. He thinks a two-year
agreement would be better
and said he has asked them to
trim their budget.
"Do you have any figures
on what sort of economies
you can make?" he asked
Paul Novak, chamber board
Novak said it would be
difficult for the chamber to
operate without the $35,000
they now receive.
Dodd suggested a one-
year contract for $27,000 and
leaving the chamber where it
is. That motion passed.

Broward commissioners consider
supporting efforts to control iguana
population in county, Florida
The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida asked the Broward Commission
to sign a resolution that would encourage the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission to officially designate iguanas as "Reptiles of Concern" and
enact rules and regulations that govern the possession, distribution and release
of green iguanas. Palm Beach and Monroe counties have recently passed similar
"This is about protecting plant life and communities that have complained
about iguana overpopulations," said Mayor Lois Wexler.
Reptiles listed as "Reptiles of Concern" require a $100 permit when pur-
chased. Reptiles falling under that category must also be micro-chipped for
"What I particularly like about this is the micro-chipping because that al-
lows them to identify who the owner was," said Broward County Commissioner
Ilene Lieberman. "It's very frustrating to me that there are people 'who take
these animals into their home and then their solution is to just let them go free
and create problems for other individuals."
According to the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida, iguanas can current-
ly be purchased at pet stores for about $10 and are often released into the wild
when owners lack the knowledge or resources to properly care for them.
The commission asked that the county attorney draft a resolution for the
Board to consider at a future meeting within thirty to sixty days.
Low-cost rabies vaccinations
Broward County Animal Care and Regulation will offer one-year rabies
vaccinations and licenses to county pets on Saturday, October 4, from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. at Mary Saunders Park, 4750 S.W. 21st St., West Park. The cost is $15
"Rabies can be serious and life-threatening. That is why these neighborhood
clinics are so important because a simple vaccination is by far the best pre-
ventative we have against rabies," said Dr. Timothy Johnston, veterinarian for
Broward County Animal Care and Regulation. "By bringing our medical team
into the community we are providing an important service that can make a big
difference toward our goal to keep Broward County a safe and rabies-free place
for all pets and residents to enjoy."
To qualify to attend the rabies clinic, a pet owner must prove they are a Bro-
ward County resident by producing a valid Florida driver's license or a current
In addition, the pet owner must bring proof that they meet low-income
guidelines based on income and family size by producing a current pay check
stub, or prove that they are receiving one of the following:
Public assistance or food stamps
'Worker's compensation or unemployment
Social Security or Disability
No appointment is necessary and customers are taken on a first-come, first-
All dogs must be on leashes and all cats must be in carriers.
This event will be the final rabies clinic for the year. Broward County

Rabies is a serious, infectious, viral disease that attacks the nervous system
of warm-blooded animals and humans. Unless animals are protected by the

Light jazz in a bucolic set-
ting was the scenario Saturday
when the Deerfield Beach
Cultural Committee hosted an
afternoon of music and food
at Constitution Park.
Phill Fest and Terezinha
Valois delivered their musi-
cal style from the shelter of
a gazebo while the audience
wandered through the Arbore-
tum or settled into their beach
The free concert was
the first of what the Cultural
Committee, sponsors of the
annual Art Festival, hope to
stage in the future.
Cultural Committee chair
Judy Standich was a bit disap-
pointed in the turnout.
The CSX railroad cross-
ing was closed for repairs
making it difficult for people
living on the eastside to at-
tend, but those who were
present gave the event a big
thumbs up. "It's just nice to
be outdoors in this beauti-
ful setting," said one person.
"It's more esoteric than most
programs offered here."
Watercolorist Ruth Gellis and herfriend
Rita La Mountain, both of
Century Village East, enjoyed the
afternoon. Perfect weather gave Gellis
an opportunity to pursue her talent
while listening to music.
DB Cultural Committee members Gina
Johnson, Helen Drakis and Fran Butler
(standing) offered a selection of fish
dip, fruit, cheese and grapes forhungry
concert-goers. Money raised went into
the Committee's scholarship fund for
students studying the arts.

Community bus riders

Nina has seen hair styles run the
gamut from big hair to today's fash-

"We stay current," Nina explains, "by
attending all of the beauty shows in
Chicago, Orlando and locally. At the
shows we go to styling workshops
where we learn new techniques and
are introduced to new products from
different well known manufactures."
"The long, straight hair look is
achieved by the cut, hair product and

Power Fence, Inc. will fence it in providing pool safety,
privacy and more security for your home or business
By Phyllis J. Neuberger

Power Fence, Inc. fenced

green chain link and an estate
double gate which is one of
the company's attractive
options. Joe Leserra says
he's pleased with the work
and plans to have Juan do

Fencing in a property
requires city permits. "We
take the headache out of the
permitting process," Juan says
"by getting the permits for the
customer. In Pompano Beach
it takes two to three weeks to
pull a permit. In Lighthouse
Point, the wait is only about
four days. In Deerfield Beach
it takes about a week."
Current codes make gat-
ing around pools mandatory
in order to prevent children
from wandering into the pool
area unsupervised. The fence
must be at least 48-inches
high. The extension latch on
the gate must be 54-inches off
the ground so that it cannot be
reached by small children.

new survey of the Museum
site which would cost at least
She has no idea how much it
would cost to relocate the car.
"It will take a lot of money
and a lot of doing," Morris
Morris added that the Soci-
ety's "dear friends" at Deer-
field Builders Supply, donated
the rail siding for the car.
Current members of her
board have no recollection of
the railroad car's arrival here.
The phrase "Operation
Choo Choo" doesn't ring
bells anymore, she said. We
think the late Bob Skuggen,
a local and much beloved PR
man with a yen for unusual
projects, coined the phrase
and envisioned raising the
money to move and restore
I do remember Skuggen
created the appropriate hub-
bub when the caboose came
to town, donated by Wm.
Thies and Sons in Ft. Lau-
derdale, and people clamored
aboard and had their pictures
taken waving from the rear
platform. He even passed out
miniature train whistles.
Brad Wanzanberg, a -
member of the Dietrich family
who own Deerfield Build-
ers Supply, says the caboose
sits on property the company
leases from the Florida East
Coast Railroad and the only
cost was securing the wheels
to insure the car cannot drift
onto the main line track.
He sees no problem with
the current situation until such
time as DBS severs its lease
with the railroad not likely
in the near future.
But he remarks, "I don't
think any of us expected the
caboose to be here all this
Sam Tischler said he was
encouraged to donate to Op-
eration Choo Choo because
of the Dietrich's involvement,
his Kiwanis affiliation and
because he thought the idea
had "some pizzaz."
The Tischlers moved to
north Georgia three years
ago, so he rarely thinks about
"his" caboose, but when is in
town he says he "smiles when
I drive by. A thousand years
from now, someone will dig it
up and wonder what we doing
If the arrival of the little
red caboose was celebrated,
its continuing presence is
pretty much ignored. I
t remains solidly planted
on the side rail, inaccessible,
unglamorous, signifying noth-
As monuments go though,
I think my co-signers would
say it is unique. And as I
mentioned earlier, the pigeons
prefer other perches.

workers are getting to work
on the Beach Express. The
whole idea is to alleviate traf-
fic and get guests in western
hotels to the beach."
In Lighthouse Point, thb
community bus runs a week-
day route along Lighthouse
Drive that brings residents to
shopping, the library and City
Hall and connects with major
BCT routes at Sample Road
and Federal Highway. Resi-
dents can ride to the Target in
Deerfield Beach, Venetian Isle
Shopping Center, St. Paul's
Church, Tillotson Square, the
Shoppes at Beacon Light, the
CVS drug store on Sample
Road and Shopper's Haven.
Neither the LHP route or
the Deerfield Beach Express
meet the county's new stan-
dard for riders: 7.1 per hour.
Previously, the mark was five.
Head Librarian Doreen
Gauthier said she doesn't
know how many people use
the bus to get to the library,
but she does view the service
as important. "It is such a
link for so many people. It
is a lifeline. It will be sorely
missed," she said.
BCT's fixed routes don't
travel within Lighthouse
Point. BCT Director Chris
Walton said the service is
especially vital to the elderly
and the handicapped. "Maybe
the bus could run in each city
on alternate days," Walton
Minney suggested that the
cities might pay jointly for
one bus to serve both areas.
In the meantime, unless
next week's meeting produces
a solution, residents of both
cities will be looking for other
ways to get to vital destina-
Major bus routes
Broward County is propos-
ing a new bus route to replace
six routes currently in opera-
tion in Deerfield Beach. Be-
ginning Nov. 2. Route 48 will
travel east/west along Hill-
sboro Boulevard, from State
Road 441 to A1A. It replaces
routes 14, 31, 50,92/94,95 and
Additionally, due to low
ridership, Route 20 will no
longer bring residents of Pom-
pano Highlands to Shopper's
Haven but will end at the North
Broward Medical Center.
A public hearing on the
changes is being held Sept. 23,
2 p.m. at the Broward County
