Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher observes Paul Whitsett as he cuts the
Peppers at the opening of the Sixth Season of Pompano Beach Green Market.
Mayor Fisher dedicated the Green Market's opening day in honor of Whitsett.
"Uncle Paul," as he is known by many, is a long-time resident and a former
president of the Pompano Beach Historical Society. He was instrumental in
helping getting the Green Market going and prospering. Lately, health problems
have prevented him from being an active participant, but on this day he was able
to join us and be recognized for his many contributions to the community.
The Pompano Beach Green Market will be open every Saturday morning
from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., through April 25. The Marketis located on Flagler Av-
enue, just north of Atlantic Boulevard and east of Dixie Highway. For informa-
tion on the Green Market, visit www.pompanohistory.com, or call 954 782-

Pompano Beach foreclosures reach 400, HUD

funds will help city buy, rehab and resell homes


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
For the foreclosed hom-
eowner, it's bad enough. But
to the neighbors and the city,
foreclosed homes bring col-
lateral damage.
That damage impacts the
neighborhood with aban-.
doned buildings, algae-filled
pools, high grass and weeds
and blight to the neighboring
homes.
Richard Bowman, direc-
tor of the office of Housing
and Urban Development, or
HUD, improvement depart-
ment, says Pompano Beach
has 300 to 400 completed
foreclosures. But that does not
include the number of homes
already in the foreclosure


system.
"Foreclosures are a mov-
ing target," Bowman says.
"What we have identified are
pure foreclosures, not those
teetering into foreclosure."
And this week, the city
identified a source of funding
to clean up, rehab and resell
these homes.
A government program,
administered by HUD, will
provide Pompano Beach with
$4.3 million for that purpose.
The Neighborhood Sta-
bilization Program, or NSP,
is already actively funding
"entitlement cities," a term
used for cities that are eligible
for community block grants,
cities with the "greatest need"
and cities with a high percent-
age of "sub prime" loans.

The NSP is part of the
Housing and Economic
Recovery Act, approved by
Congress last July. The NSP is
funded with $4 billion.
"We have restrictions on
how we can use it," said Bow-
man. "HUD was very clear
that we can only be involved
with properties already fore-
closed."
Bowman explained that
the houses, now owned by
banks or other mortgage hold-
ers, would have to be pur-
chased by the city at a "steep
discount."
Bowman said that after
the homes were rehabbed,
they would be returned to the
market for resale.
And there are stipula-
tions on who can buy these"
rehabbed homes. Since HUD
funds can only be used for af-
fordable housing,, only buyers
who meet that requirement..
can make the purchase.
Bowman explained that
HUD takes into account the
family size and income to
determine eligibility..For .
example, a family of four that
earns a median income of
$86,000 would be eligible for
the purchase. .
Th,e city may use out-


side sources for the rehab,
but Bowman added that the
city would be responsible to
oversee everything from start
to finish.
"At the end of the day, we
have to oversee the work," he
said. "We can't turn over the
money and walk away."
But Bowman adds that
while $4.3 million may sound
like an enormous amount, it
won't solve the foreclosure
problems in this city.
"When you see what we
have to deal with, it's a small
sum," he said.
The funds are expected
to be in city coffers by mid-

Deerfield Beach
allotted $2 million in
NSP funds
Deerfield Beach has been
allocated $2 million in fund-
ing through NSP.
With this funding, the city
may purchase foreclosed or
abandoned homes to reha-
bilitate, resell or redevelop,
in order to stabilize neighbor-
hoods and stem the decline of
house values of neighboring
homes.

LBTS to set

life guard

workshop
Commissioners in Lau-
derdale-By-The-Sea unani-
mously agreed to schedule a
workshop concerning life-
guards on the beach. The ses-
sion is set for 6 p.m. Dec. 16.
In suggesting the work-
shop, Commissioner Birute
Clottey said she would like to
see lifeguards on the beach.
"But it's a Catch 22. How
many towns put lifeguards
behind homes and condos
where the public has limited
access?" she asked.
"The VFD, or volunteer
fire department, members are
not lifeguards," Clottey noted.
"We never asked them to be.
If we want lifeguards, let's
talk about lifeguards."
Vice Mayor Jerry Mc-
Intee said recent drownings
occurred at the north and
south ends of town. "We
couldn't justify putting life-
guards there. We can't afford
lifeguards. That's smoke and
mirrors stuff."

Commission

to honor local

life-saver
In other action, LBTS
commissioners agreed to
create a lifesaving award for
those who save other's lives.
And they agreed the first re-
cipient will be Mark Mitchell,
an Ocean Colony resident,
who recently rescued a visi-
tor from Montreal, who was
caught up in a riptide.
The commission passed a
resolution urging the Bro-
ward County Commission to
provide lifeguard services on
beaches in the town.

The Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea Town Commission tabled
for six months a proposed
ordinance requiring a refer-
endum approval or a four-
fifths vote of the commission
for any entity other than the
Volunteer Fire Department or
VFD to provide fire protec-
tion services in town.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIn-
tee suggested the ordinance
in July. The VFD began
providing fire protection Oct.
1, replacing the Broward
Sheriff's Office Fire Rescue
Department.

Lighthouse Point
Commission action
In other news, in a 3-1
vote, the LHP Commission
extended Waste Manage-
ment's contract for the city
to May 31, 2012. There were
no cost increases associated
with the 3-year extension. The
contract includes a vacation
. rebate for part-time residents
with a minimum of 90 days


to a maximum of six months.
The lone dissenting vote was
Commissioner Tom Hasis who
inquired about the possibility
of exploring fee reductions.
Commissioner Michael Long
was absent from the proceed-
ings.
The commissioners also
discussed and reviewed a
series of potential city entry-
way sign styles in order to
determine what would best
suit LHP.
Small placards and panels
cost from $1,000 to $3,000
while mid to large signs and
monuments range from $3,000
to $10,000.
A decision was postponed
until Long returned for the
next meeting.

Big party will spotlight Brazilian culture


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
The venue has changed
and her expenses have soared,
but special events promoter
Debora Christina believes
Deerfield's Brazilian Festi-
val later this month will be a
winner.
The one-day event will
feature two stages with con-
tinuous entertainment, carni-
val games and rides, vendor
booths offering Brazilian food
and handcrafts and demon-
strations of capoeira and Latin
dancing.
"Everything is much more
expensive than in 2006,"

Christina said. She estimates
the event will cost $100,000,
$50,000 of which is a contri-
bution from the city.
Christina helped coordi-
nate five Brazilian Fests the
last one in 2006- which were
held in the beach parking lot.
after the Offshore Boat Races.
The exuberant festival
drew enormous crowds as
well as complaints from resi-
* dents of the area.
"I like the beach," Christi-
na said. "But you know what?
It is too small. There is no
parking. It is hard to service.
There was room for only 40
booths. The Festival is too big
for such a small space."
So the Festival has been
moved to Martin Luther King
Avenue between SW 10 Street
and Hillsboro Boulevard. It
will be held Nov. 23, noon to
10 p.m.


- I- 4


Brazilian Fest promoter Debora Chris-
tina is enthused about the upcoming
event.


"Since this is the first year
A there, I don't know what to
^Ai expect," she said. "But I have
sold 70 booths."
Christina, a former
Deerfield Beach resident who
lived here 13 years, does all
of the scheduling for the event
and solicits sponsorships
ranging in price from $2,000
) to $20,000. So far she has
contributions from Comcast,


Western Union, Direct TV, the
Brazilian Consulate of Miami
and the Brazilian Chamber of
Commerce.
"It's the most popular
Brazilian street festival in
South Florida," claims this
journalism major who es-
tablished Brazilian Night at

Deerfield Beach in 2001 and
throws a party in Davie, Festa

Making a Difference

Why be alone on Thanksgiving when you can dine with

Erik Yankwitt and over a thousand holiday orphans


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Many people are far from family
and close friends during the holidays.
"You don't need to be alone," says
-Eric Yankwitt who has organized a
huge free Thanksgiving dinner for
people like himself whom he calls,
"holiday orphans." It was just last year
that his 16 year old daughter Lindsey
turned to him and asked, What are
we going to do for Thanksgiving? 'Are
we going to zap a frozen turkey dinner
for the two of us this year?"
Yankwitt, a single parent with no
family in Florida, knew there were
many other people just like he and
Lindsey, facing a lonely holiday. "I
didn't want to spend the airfare for the
two of us to fly to New York where I
do have family," he says. "It's a big
expense for just two or three days.
Instead I decided to gather up other
holiday orphans to join us and cel-
ebrate this traditional holiday making
new friends and getting a sense of
community."
Emphasizing his point, he adds,
"Florida with its seasonal population
often seems to be a transient place
where people don't know their neigh-
bor's name, much less their neighbor."
Little did he know how much
work was involved in putting on a
party which turned out to be for 1,200
people. Because he serves on so
many boards, he found a number of
people willing to pitch in and make
this party happen. He says, "We found
sponsors willing to donate funds and
food. We found volunteers willing to
cook, prepare, serve and clean up. The
original site for the dinner folded just
three weeks before Thanksgiving and
we had to scramble to find alternative
places. The Smart School in Lauder-
dale Lakes and Living Word Church
in Lauderhill offered space but had no
kitchens. We had to learn the Health
Department requirements and settled
for having the food delivered to these
two sites by the wonderful people who
provided it."
Yankwitt continues his telling of
this successful event. "Nothing, since
the birth of my children, gave me the
high I got from making this Thanks-
giving dinner a success. What a thrill
to see individuals arriving bearing
casseroles, carved turkeys, veggies,

salads, paper goods, sodas, sweet
potato and pumpkin pies. We didn't
know how many were coming or if
there would be enough food. In the
end there was food and room for the
1,200 people who sat side by side to
enjoy an unforgettable Thanksgiving."
Verenice Rapaport was one of
those people. She says, "I'm a social
worker with Broward County Board
of County Commissioners Human
Services Department. We were
major sponsors last year, and we are
again this year. Eric is unique in that
he works for community education
and self sufficiency. He's a volun-
teer teacher providing education in
life skills and last Thanksgiving we
brought many working families in the
neighborhood to dinner. They cooked
and brought food. I'm without family
so I'll attend the dinner again as will
many of my work associates."
Lauderhill Commissioner Howard
Berger and several of his staff were on
hand. Berger says, "We were happy to
give our time to helpp make Thanks-
giving dinner a success."
This year will be even better!
Dinners will be served between 11 a.
m. and 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving day
The free dinner will take place in

Letters & Opinion

"Ask Lori...Parrish on Appraisal"



Last Call To Late-File A 2008

Homestead Exemption

Dear Lori:
My mother moved to Deerfield Beach last year. Unfortunately, due to her
illness, she never got around to filing for her Homestead Exemption before the
March 3rd deadline. Is there any way my mom can still file for a 2008 Home-
stead Exemption? T. Williams, Fort Lauderdale

Dear T. Williams,

Don't worry. Florida law allows for late filing with good cause for the 2008
Tax Year through Dec. 1, 2008. Your mother may still apply for Homestead
Exemption with a "late-filing with good-cause" petition to the Broward County
Value Adjustment Board.
The petitions are available at our main office, Plantation office or online at
www.bcpa.net under "Download Forms."
The late filing petition is simple to complete and our office staff will be
happy to assist you. Please note there is a $15 non-refundable filing fee for the
petition. Checks should be made out to the Broward County Value Adjustment
Board.
To claim a 2008 Homestead, you must have purchased, be named on the
title, and moved onto the property on or before Jan. 1, 2008, and meet certain
other residency qualifications of having a Florida driver's license/ID card and a
voter card (or recorded Declaration of Domicile) showing the property address.
"Good cause" means the showing of particular extenuating circumstances in
complying with the law such as an emergency or illness.
Remember your late filing petition must be received in the Broward Coun-
ty Value Adjustment Board's office no later than 5:00PM on December 1, 2008,
for you to be eligible for a 2008 exemption. No exceptions!
If you would like more information about exemptions, VAB petitions and
other important property tax issues, please visit our website at www.bcpa.net or
contact our office directly at 954.357.6830.

Sincerely,
Lori Parrish, CFA

If you have a question for the Property Appraiser, please email Lori at
lori@bcpa.net, or write to her at the Broward County Property Appraiser's Of-
fice, 115 South Andrews Avenue, Room 111, Fort Lauderdale.

A Brazilian Hair & Spa offers an entire

menu of beauty, hair and skin services

PELICAN STAFF
A Brazilian Hair & Spa, is a uni-
sex salon designed and built by owner,
Mo Atabani. Located at 1436 E.
Atlantic Blvd. #G in Pompano Beach
in combined store fronts, Mo does
the marketing and is the spokesperson
while his wife, Jessica, and staff do
the hands on client services.
Mo describes himself as a "nucle-
ar electrical engineer and state li-
censed general contractor. I specialize
in lighted glass carvings and creating
room designs, accents and furniture."
He proudly tours visitors through-
out the hair and nail salon, pointing
out a high tech ceiling, large ornate
mirrors, framed in gold and silver foil-
ing fronting each beauty station. The
stations tops are unusual glass designs
with interior lighting.
"Just look at these manicure sta-
tions," he says. "They are actually
two metal framed, glass computer
tables. One slides under the other in
a compact design conserving space
when not in use." After demonstrating
the flexible manicure tables, he calls
attentions to Chinese red shampoo
sinks, contoured for comfort, lighted
glass cabinets, and mauve colored
walls with unexpected Chinese red
woodwork.


Mo Atabani it the designer and spokesperson for A Brazilian Hair & Spa which offers beauty, hair
and skin services to men and women.


The second side of this salon is
the spa side with a privacy room for
each experience including tanning,
massage, wax and facials. There's a
wall of boutique personal and home
accessory items, all unusual Asian,
Egyptian and Brazilian products.
"Holiday shoppers should stop by and
see what we have," Mo suggests.
The tour ended back in the salon
where Jessica, cosmetologist, was
about to straighten Ami Nunes's curly
head of hair. The Pelican persuaded
Ami to pose for a before and after
photograph. Keratin straighten-
ing, Mo says, "is commonly used in
Brazil where Jessica was trained. It's
now very popular in North America.
Keratin is a protein treatment which
straightens hair, eliminates frizz, and


adds shine. It actually changes the
integrity of the hair and makes it feel
like silk. The process lasts about three
months and is even more effective the
second time."
A Brazilian Hair & Spa offers
Keratin hair straightening for $99
which Mo claims is less than half the
price charged by competitors. "We do
this," he explains, to encourage busi-
ness and introduce new customers to
our services."
Ami, a brand new customer, shook
her head in agreement saying,
"I came because of the price. I've
seen Keratin straightening offered

contract went nowhere at this
week's commission meeting.
Then the mayor got a
second rejection when she
asked the town attorney
to determine whether any
commissioners had committed
illegal acts or had been
victims of any illegal acts
with regard to allegations by
former VFD Battalion Chief
Patrick Pointu.
In his resignation
letter, Pointu said he could
no longer deal with [Vice'
Mayor and VFD member]
Jerry McIntee's 'threats,
intimidations, insults and
constant disregard for
procedures,' by law and by
chain of command."
When the resignation
letter became public, McIntee
in turn accused Pointu of
assault.
"I want to make sure
Vice Mayor McIntee is not a
victim. If he was attacked, we
should be the first to protect
him," the mayor said.
That's when the mayor
suggested that the Insurance,
Services Office, or ISO,
be called to evaluate the
town's paid volunteer fire
department.
"Our responsibility is to
assure the safety of all our
citizens. Public safety is the
most important issue. We
need to get to the bottom of it,
settle it and move forward."


No one on the dais
supported Minnet's request.
The ISO is regularly
called in to evaluate local
fire departments. The
departments are graded on
a scale of 1 to 10 with "1"
being the best possible score.
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea has
a "4" rating. Broward County
Shetiffs-Office has a "3,"
and Lighthouse Point, a city
close to the population of


Lauderdale-By-The-Sea has a
"3" rating.
ISO ratings are
determined by many factors,
including the availability of
water, training procedures and
aerial ladder trucks.
The ISO rating impacts
homeowner insurance rates
for the entire municipality.
Commissioner Stuart
Dodd said, "The correct
answer is an oversight


About ISO
"Using the ISO Fire Suppression Rating Schedule, or FSRS,
ISO's Public Protection Classification, or PPC, program helps
insurance companies measure and evaluate the major elements of
a community's fire suppression system. The PPC program is based
on an evaluation of a municipality's fire department [50 percent],
fire alarm [10 percent] and water supplies [40 percent]. ISO analyz-
es this information and assigns an advisory number from 1 to 10.
Class 1 represents exemplary fire protection and Class 10 indicates
that the community's fire suppression program does not meet ISO's
minimum criteria.
ISO requests updated information from communities at least
every 24 months through the ISO Community Outreach Program.
In areas of the'country experiencing higl. growth rates, this request
is made at least once a year. Through this program, communities
provide updated information concerning their fire department, fire
alarm, water supplies (including updated hydrant locations), fire.
stations, and fire response boundaries. ISO utilizes this information
to update the community's records and to evaluate the need for a
comprehensive on-site field survey. A survey can also be requested
by an insurer, or by a community, when substantial changes have
occurred since the last visit.
ISO collects information useful in many aspects of insurance
underwriting and rating. That information includes evaluations of
public fire protection with the cooperation of local officials under
the ISO PPC program. Information on municipal services helps the
communities with their efforts to manage and mitigate their risk.
We perform the evaluations on behalf of the property insurance
industry, and consequently do not charge any fee to local communi-
ties." -- Mike Waters, vice president of Risk Decision Services at
ISO


committee. We can't rely on
the ISO to do this. They're not
the right body. I don't believe
going on a witch hunt here
will achieve that."
He asked the commission
to establish a public safety
oversight committee.
Earlier Dodd said if he
wasn't happy with the town's
investigation of the Pointu
resignation, he would ask for
a private inquiry.
Dodd said the town
manager reported that she
has responsibility for VFD
contractual obligations but not
personnel matters.
"I disagree. I think she
has the authority," Dodd
said. "But what can come
from hashing out allegations?
Clearly the board of the VFD
doesn't want to do anything."
Dodd said results could
be. achieved with an oversight
committee' "Not as judge,
jury and executioner. The
committee should fill the
gap between the ISO and
the town manager to be sure
SOPs, or Standard Operating
Procedures, are observed."

In his letter, Pointu
complained that SOPs were
not observed and many had
not been established.
Commissioner Jim
Silverstone said there was no
issue [with the resignation
letter]. "This should have
been brought to the VFD
Board of Directors. The
VFD is a para-military
organization. We will have
personalities that are tough.
Sometimes there are egos, and
you will have clashes."
Mclntee called Minnet's
request for an evaluation a
"direct attack on the VFD"
and a pay-back to BSO for
supporting her campaign for
mayor.
"You are turning this
into politics," said McIntee.
"They'll tell you they love
the VFD and can't understand
these massive blows."
And they did.
VFD members stood at
the back of the room. Eight
spoke at the podium thanking
the commissioners for their
jobs.

Continued from page 7
The Pelican was unable
to ascertain if the city saw or
approved the second set of
plans.
After the homes were
designed, three feet had to be
removed from the structure
because of the proximity of a
drainage easements. Simpson
said it was a county code that
caused the change.
The result is a shorter
garage area, a reduced laundry
area and no back concrete
patio area.
A drive through Ortanique


confirms that most cars are
parked in driveways and not
in garages.
One homeowner said she
could get her mid-sized car
into the garage, but then could
not open the door that leads
from the garage to the house.
But it was still a surprise
when new homeowners found
problems with their garages.
Officially only one com-
plaint has reached the de-
veloper which is a board of
non-profit groups referred to
as CHDOs, or Community
Housing Development Orga-
nization.


This homeowner points out a space between a bathtub and the vanity. She can-
not use the tub because of splashing water. The builder had sealed the space
with a plastic seal.


Six CHDOs make up the
Ortanique board. That board
is referred to as a CEHDA,
or Community Economic and
House Development Associa-
tion.
CEHDA receives funds
to oversee the work. These
funds are used to finance their
neighborhood projects and
help pay overhead expenses.
The CHDOs that make up
the board are five churches,
St. James Community De-
velopment, Inc.; Collier City
CDC; Abyssinian CDC,
Brown's CDC; New Hori-
zons CDC and one homeown-
ers association, Hawkins
Homes.
CEHDA, headed by
Charles Ellington, oversees
the project and receives funds
for this task. To date, $30,000
has been distributed to the
group and disbursed to the six
non-profit groups.
The Rev. Wylie L. How-
ard, president of one of the
CHDOs and secretary and
treasurer of the CEDHA says
the funds are documented

Continued from page 12
with the city and forwarded to
HUD through Charles Elling-
ton. Pastor Howard's CHDO
works directly with the com-
munity finding homes for fos-
ter children and training foster
families among other work.
Ellington's wife, Emma,
heads up Hawkins Homes, a
501-C-3, She says that some
funds were used to assist
some buyers and gives ex-
amples. One woman was short
$25,000 because a grant did
not come through. A young
couple needed $20,000. One
man was given $10,000 by
Simpson and another $5,000
by CEHDA.
"When they went to clos-
ing, and they were short, we
would give them money. It
just depends," says Emma.
"The funds are reinvested into
the community through giving
back to the people who need
it. We have given back over
$200,000 to this project."
She adds that a quarterly
report is due shortly.
"The little money we get
should go back to keep our
doors open," said Emma.
"People come here every day
looking for homes, or advice
on credit issues. People have a
lot of problems."
Emma adds, "If the prob-
lems were that bad, why did
the city give COs? You have
one year to rectify whatever
is on your punch list, and they
had nine months to report a
problem. It should be reported
to Darryl Simpson. Everyone
signed off."
Bul Emma says not all
new homeowners are disgrun-
tled. "I went out to see four
families. They were so happy.
They were crying."
But two families were not
happy when they learned that
the mortgage they had on their
home did not include the land
that the city had given to the
West CRA.
One family said they
signed the second mortgage
for the land after they had
signed the mortgage for their
home.
The Pelican agreed not to
use names in this story. The
second mortgage must be paid
off before the 30-year house
mortgage is paid. That makes
it difficult to leave a home to a
family member or to sell their
home if the owner has a job
transfer.
Every home sold comes
with two mortgages: one
for the house and a $60,000
mortgage for the land. No
payment is made on the sec-
ond mortgage as long as the
original homeowner remains
in the house. The CRA could
forgive the second mortgage
at any time.
One of Lawson's requests


of the city was a copy of the
501-C-3 for the CEDHA and
the CHDOs. City Manager
Keith Chadwell responded
with certificates for all of the
CHDOs but did not have a
certificate for the CEDHA.
Lawson also requested in-
formation about homeowners
who purchased homes without
any additional funding. He
asks could or did the CRA
sell lots "at less than value"
to people who exceeded the
income limit?
Chadwell responded that
there was "no agreement"
regarding the sale of lots.
Lawson has asked if there
had been any "monitoring"
to prevent individuals from
using the "first-time" home-
buyers' program if they had
already owned a home within
three years of receiving the
funds.
Chadwell responded that
there was no policy in place
"although the staff does
periodic random property
searches to determine if there
is any misrepresentation."
Chadwell got high praise
from Pastor Howard for his
recent involvement with Or-
tanique.
"Chadwell has been stead-
fast. He put the ball in our
court and said 'Tell us what
we need to do.' He promised
to help bring this project to


closure. These houses are
close to perfect. We want
this to be a model project.
The people who are in these
homes are deserving."
Ortanique had been un-
derway for four years when
Chadwell was hired as city
manager. At that time, Robert
Franke was on board as the
CRA director. He recently
resigned his post.
But to Simpsoh, the city
should not have been the of-
fice for complaints.
"I have only had one com-
plaint," says Simpson. "I am
meeting with Mr. Chadwell
and CEDHA to mitigate those
problems. We want an ami-
cable solution. It's difficult for
me to defend myself when I
don't know who has a prob-
lem. I'm here everyday. It's
not like I'm unapproachable."
Pastor Howard said he
will ask the CEDHA board
to arrange for a Hotline to
hear complaints. Meanwhile,
he offered his office number,
954-968-6777.
"I will be happy to meet
with Mr. Lawson," Howard
said. "This project is the first
one out of the gates. There
have been some struggles, but
Pompano should be celebrat-
ing this project."
This Tuesday, city com-
missioners will discuss hiring
an outside redevelopment firm


to oversee both the East and
West CRAs. In a memo dated
Oct. 27, Chadwell wrote that
he would like to seek a firm ".
. to manage all aspects of the
redevelopment process. Cur-
rent CRA staff and resources
will be coordinated by the
selected firm with oversight
by the CRA Board and the
executive director."
Costs are expected to be in

Holiday SOS

Help for the first

time host

Slaving away for weeks prepping for
your first holiday meal? As the lucky
ones learn sooner rather than later,
it's not working harder it's working
smarter that gets the job done right.
Why shouldn't that apply to the
upcoming holiday season?
Hosting your first holiday feast can
be intimidating. All the pressure
of seamlessly executing a complex
meal in a timely manner can make
even the most experienced cook
wish someone else would take over.
No worries! Armed with delicious,
dependable recipes, tiine-saving
tips and wonderful wines for your
guests, pulling it off seamlessly isn't
as intricate as you might think. Who
knows even seasoned cooks might
pick up a few pointers.
Keep the menu simple. Don't feel
abashed about buying store-bought
items to supplement the meal, as
long as they are quality items.
Source a good local bakery for
crusty rolls for the main course and a
fresh apple pie or creamy cheesecake
for dessert. You may spend a bit
more, but you'll save your sanity
and, if you find good sources, the
store-bought items can be as good as
homemade. Eventually, as you build
your skills, you'll be able to branch
out to making more dishes from
scratch.
Don't be afraid to ask for help.
Have your guests bring some dishes
and ask family members to lend a
helping hand before the meal. It's
important to create a feeling of
involvement for everyone, especially
children. While you might not want
them near the hot stove, they can
certainly be part of the festivities
by drawing holiday pictures to
put on the refrigerator, setting
and decorating the table, or even
making seasonal decorations. This
homemade touch will charm your
guests and save you time!
Simplify your wine selection. Some
wines need to be aged for so long
you won't be taking a sip until 2018.
When it comes to optimal food
pairing, oenophiles favor the wines
from the Rioja region in Spain for
their unbeatable, consistent quality;
in fact, they have long agreed that
Rioja wines are literally made for
food. Thanks to the Tempranillo
grape, a smooth and delectable
Spanish classic, Riojas equally

the oven mimics the rays of

superbly crispy pepperoni
slices as well as crust. It was a
refreshing change from what
can often be a greasy dish.
Made with little fanfare,
the food is prepared to perfec-

most discriminating pizza
palate.
In fact, you can sidle up to
the counter and watch as your
dinner is prepared and cooked
in under 5 minutes with pre-
dictably tasty results.
"We are also famous for
our Stromboli" asserts Lon-
nie. This dish is similar to a
Calzone but the stuffing of


ham, pepperoni, capocollo,
mushrooms, onions and zesty
sauce is enveloped in folded
dough and then baked to a
golden crisp.
Complete dinners of
lasagna, eggplant parmesan,
chicken carbonara and mani-
cotti are also on the menu.
They come with a house
salad and'Island City's classic
garlic cheese rolls.
As an appetizer, give their
chicken wings a try as well!
Pizzas come in 10", 14"

starting at $5.95, $9.95 and
$11.95 respectively. There
is ample parking and most

Public invited to public workshop to view new plans for Pompano Pier


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
On Saturday, Nov. 15, at 10
a.m., at the Emma Lou Olson
Civic Center, the architects
for the Pier Restaurant and
public parking lot sites will
unveil and discuss plans for
the beach, pier and adjacent
parking lots.
The most recent designs
produced by Slattery &
Associates, a Boca Raton
company, include a multi-
tiered restaurant at the
Municipal Pier site with retail


shops and parking.
A parking garage with a
surrounding 22,500 sq. ft. of
retail space and a park are
planned west of Pompano
Beach Parkway, across from
the restaurant.
Barbara Gordon, a member
of the East CRA Advisory
. Board, says the designs
strayed too far from the Beach
Master Plan of the East CRA,
which she says offered more
"open space" and took away
too much visibility of the
beach itself.
Gordon was one of several


people who worked for nine
months to help design the
beach master plan.
And she's unhappy that the
master plan concept was not
honored.
"While hundreds of people
were working on a master
plan for the local beach area
of the CRA, the city was
negotiating the pier, restaurant
and parking lot lease that
took the heart from the plan,"
Gordon said.
The master plan was the
result of several workshops
attended by interested


business owners and residents.
As to the "heart" of that
plan, Gordon says with the
latest concept, there is no
where else in the city that you
can stand and get a clear look
at the beach."
Gordon says she does not
object to redevelopment on
the beach, but she is against
the city "commercializing"
the area.
The meeting will give
interested residents a chance
to see the proposals for the
new beach restaurant, the
parking garage, a picnic park


and other designs for the Pier
and Oceanside parking lots.
City officials will also be
on hand to ask and answer
questions.
"We need a consensus,"
says Pompano Beach
Commissioner Barry
Dockswell, [Dist. 1]. "We
need to solve traffic and
parking issues, I think it
would be great to see people
at the beach. We need to press
on with positive development
as long as we are preserving
the quality of life for the
people who live in the area."


Isle Casino & Racing debuts new Hummer starting gate


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
The first of its kind, a har-
ness racing starting gate built
from a Hummer, debuted at
the Isle Casino & Racing at
Pompano Park Friday morn-
ing for the tracks qualifying
races.
The mobile starting gate is
used in harness racing to keep
all of the horses in line before
the start of each race so no
one gets an unfair advantage


at the start of the race.
The wings of the gate have
the
numbered post positions
for each horse in the race
to start behind and once the
starter says "Go,' the gate
pulls ahead of the field and


the wings of the gate pull in as
the horses begin the race.
At most tracks the starting
gate then follows the race,
checking for any infractions
by the drivers and also for
safety reasons in case of an
accident.

Hummer


Continued from page 17

concept of using a Hummer
for a starting gate nearly two
years ago.
The Hummer starting gate
has two special features. The
race starter sits very high and
can see over the gate and view
the entire field of horses and
that there is room for up to
three passengers, two seats


next to the race starter and
one next to the driver. The
track is planning on having
special drawings to allow
patrons to ride in the Hummer
starting gate.
"The view is just great,"
said Isle Pompano Park
Starter Frank Dalton. "Instead
of having to look through
the screened area to see the
horses, I can now see down on
the field clearly and that will
help a great deal in starting


the races and seeing if any of
the horsemen are having
trouble before the start."
"I think the Hummer was
a good choice for it's size and
capabilities and the starting
gate worked out well be-
ing installed on it," said Pat
Ridenour, owner of Howard
Starting Gate Company. "It
turned out very well and will
be comfortable for the driver,
starter, and passengers. And
it will be a very good vehicle
for any track conditions. It
was not harder to build than
other gates, just different
modifications. The special
features with using a Hummer
are the elevated view for the
starter and passengers."
The new Hummer starting
gate will be used for the first
time in a pari-mutuel race Fri-
day night at the Isle Pompano
Park at 7:25 pm.

Will Global Warming impact Florida in 50 years?


By Norbert Izworski
PELICAN WRITER
Overall, a large majority
of Florida residents believe
that Global Warming is real,
and caused by human activi-
ties. Likewise, most Florid-
ians believe Global Warm-
ing is already or will soon
have a variety of significant
impacts on the state. This is
the conclusion of the report,
"Florida: Public Opinion on
Climate Change," a survey of
Florida residents conducted in
May 2008 by Yale University
and the University of Miami.
Most of the people sur-
veyed believe that parts
of Florida will have to be
abandoned within the next 50
years due to rising sea levels.
Because of this, the major-
ity of Floridians are looking to
Governor Crist, state legisla-
tors and community mayors to
address Global Warming, and
implement solutions.
A majority of those sur-
veyed favored four potential
state-level policies.
1. Require electric utili-
ties to produce at least twenty


percent of their power from
renewable sources such as
wind, solar, and bio-fuel.
2. Implement an energy
efficiency program to replace
old water heaters, air condi-
tioners and light bulbs with
high efficiency units, and
insulate homes and buildings
to maximum levels.
3. Install solar panels
on all appropriate govern-
ment buildings as a means of
generating electricity. (This
could be extended to commer-
cial and residential structures,
too.)
4. Implement a $2.50
monthly surcharge on electric
bills, and use these funds for
educational programs to teach
Floridians how to reduce their
energy consumption.
The funds would also be
used to help defray the cost of
implementing these policies.
Finally, many of those
surveyed said they are will-
ing to personally reduce their
environmental footprint.
In October 2008, the
Energy and Climate Change
Committee commissioned
by Governor Crist fourteen


months ago, released a 30-
page report with their action
plans to secure Florida's
energy future, and address
Global Warming.
The report, "Florida's
Energy and Climate Change
Action Plan," gives 50 sepa-
rate policy recommendations,
including the four contained
in the Florida survey.
The report highlights
that the principal sources
of Florida's greenhouse gas
emissions are from transporta-
tion and the consumption of
electricity.
Other sources of green-
house gas emissions are from
agriculture, forest fires, the
trash we generate, and in-
dustry. Each one of these is.
addressed in the report.
Now is the time to support
these recommendations, and
do what we can to reduce our
own Global Warming foot-
print.

their entirety, go to

edu/uploads/FloridaGlobal-
