hopes to change

rules that make

town 'laughing.

stock'
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea agreed this week to sched-
ule a January workshop discussion
of a proposed charter referendum to
prevent a conflict of interest between
employment with a town public safety
provider and an elected official.
In proposing the charter change,
Commissioner Stuart Dodd said the
role of commissioners and public
safety employees should be mutually
exclusive. "Elected officials should
be above reproach."
Dodd suggested patterning a change
after a Miami-Dade ordinance, which
says a commissioner may not vote on
any matter where they are an officer,
director, partner, counselor or em-
ployee.
The change would be applicable
after the 2010 election. "We should let
the people decide whether a commis-
sioner can wear two hats," Dodd said.
"We're the laughing stock in Tal-
lahassee," Dodd said. "We are well
known in Tallahassee for our ethics
issues."

Michele Greene has the perfect gift
for stocking stuffing: tickets to the
5th Annual Taste of Lighthouse Point.
Sales are fairly brisk at her 3320 N.
Federal Highway office where pur-
chasers can pay by credit card, cash or
check.
The event, which came into its own
last year as one of Lighthouse Point's
serious fund raisers, will be held Tues-
day, Jan. 20 at the Lighthouse Point
Yacht and Tennis Club.
Greene hopes to fill the Club's com-
modious party rooms with 300 people,
a healthy jump from last year's at-
tendance. The chamber has opened up
the tasting opportunities. This year not
only will Lighthouse Point restaurants
participate, but chefs from Pompano

2 The Pelican


Armed gunman, rapist at large in Pompano.

Early morning robberies, rapes ongoing since October


Special to The Pelican
BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S
A Pennsylvania couple,
visiting Pompano Beach, was
robbed on the beach by an
armed gunman in the early
morning hours of Nov. 30.
The man and woman, both
31, were on the beach around
4 a.m. when they were ap-
proached by a man wearing a
mask.
The suspect pointed a gun
at the couple and demanded
money.
The robber is described as
a black male, 20 to 30 years
old, 5' 10" to 6'2" tall, weigh-
ing approximately 185 lbs..
He has a.thin build, twisted
hair or "corn rows," and wore
all black clothing and masks.
H'e fled with-cash and a $300
cellphone from the male
victim.


Broward Sheriff's Office
detectives believe the suspect
in this case is responsible for
at least three other recent rob-
beries and a rape in the same
stretch of Pompano Beach.
Around 5:30 a.m. on Oct.
25, a couple, both 26, were
on the beach when they were
victims of an armed robbery
and attempted rape.
The female victim man-
aged to kick the suspect, and
he fled with cash from the
victims.
On Nov. 15, a 30-year-old
woman reported she was
raped the previous day while
on a bench at the beach with
her boyfriend.
She told detectives around
4 a.m. on Nov. 14, she was on
the bench with her boyfriend
when they were approached
from behind by a masked gun-

The suspect forced the
couple to have sex, stopped
them, and then raped the
female victim.
At approximately 2 a.m.
on Nov. 28, a teenage couple
was sitting on the beach at
200 Briny Ave. when a black
male approached them from
behind.
The suspect knelt down
and brandished a handgun.
The gunman asked the teens
if they had money. In this
instance, the suspect was
wearing a Halloween mask.
He fled empty handed.
Barry Dockswell, Pompano
Beach Commissioner, Dist.
1, said he will arrange a press
conference with BSO officials
to discuss the crime series.
"I want you to know that I
and all city officials are doing
everything we can to combat-
this situation and apprehend


the perpetrator. Moreover, we
need to enlist community sup-
port of this effort."
Dockswell added that BSO
has re-directed additional
resources to patrol the prob-
lem area.
Residents who see anything
suspicious should call 911 if
the situation is urgent, or 954
786-4200 to report non-emer-
gency information.
Dockswell asked all resi-
dents who are contacted by
a BSO deputy to cooperate
and provide information as
appropriate.
Anyone with information on
this case is asked to contact

November


melee creates

concerns for

IWS events

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
A Christian concert and.
skate exhibition for kids held
in November turned into a
rumble that has made Deer-
field Beach city officials fear-
ful of scheduling another such
event. City Manager Mike
Mahaney said of the annual
Midnight Madness event held
at Island Water Sports,
"I had to pull, cops from
everywhere. There was sig-
nificant trouble, and our cops
were at risk. This event won't
happen again. I'm totally op-
posed to it."
Mahaney's heated remarks
were in response to a request
from Island Water Sports rep-
resentatives that another skate
event be permitted Dec. 12.
Asked Shane Cotrell;
"How can we fix it?"
Replied the city manager,
"It won't happen. It's too large
an event for the area."
The surf shop has been
sponsoring the concert with
a Christian theme for many
years along with frequent
skate nights.
The December event is
advertised as a free skate and
trick skate contest along with
a Christmas sale. A jazz musi-
cian was scheduled to play
inside the store, Cotrell said
on Wednesday.
Apologizing on behalf
of Island Water Sports for
the November melee, Mike
Petronis said one of the bands
brought in "a huge crowd. We
don't normally do things of
this magnitude."
Photos on the Island Wa-
ter Sports website show mer-
chandise and people crammed
into two parking lots.
The problems were acer-
bated by road construction on
the 'S' curve where the retailer
is located a few blocks west
of the Fishing Pier and an in-
fusion of people from nearby
bars and restaurants. Cotrell
said, "Nothing happened on
our property."
Said Dist. 1 Commission-
er Pam Militello, "the city has
been supportive, but you are
having more and more events.
The area is different than it
was 10 years ago. You're a
private business and up here
asking for permits more than
any other business."
Mayor Al Capellini
added, "You're draining our
resources. You have to pay for
police protection like other.

Deerfield officials agree freighter should become an underwater habitat


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER

The offshore waters of
Deerfield Beach will likely
become safe harbor for Bro-
ward's newest artificial reef, a
165-foot freighter now in the
custody of U.S. Customs.
An area 1.5 miles offshore
between the Deerfield Beach
Fishing Pier and the Boca Ra-
ton Inlet is the perfect resting
place for the Miss Lourdies
according to Craig Ash of
CEPEMAR Environmental
Services.
Ash told Deerfield Beach
City Commissioners that
permits to build an artificial
reef already exist for what
is labeled The Boca Deep
Site and because a salvage
firm can realize some profit
from the ship's equipment
and motors, the cost to tow it
from Miami, rid it of pollut-
ants, asbestos, PCBs and any
dangerous debris, anchor it
and sink it comes to $20,000.
Those funds are being raised
privately.
"We have some pledges,"
Ash said. "We are confident
we can raise the money. May-
be we'll let the highest bidder

items for the live, silent and
Chinese auctions. The goal,
Greene said, is to have all the
costs of the Taste underwrit-
ten so that the money raised
goes back into the commu-
nity.

realized from the Taste

rename the ship. The key is
to have the money in hand so
when Customs releases the
vessel, we can move quickly."
Once the Customs Depart-
ment concludes its investiga-
tion, the Miss Lourdies will
be towed to Deerfield Beach,
anchored and sunk by open-
ing portholes that will be
cut and sealed before she is
moved. She will rest on a
sandy bottom 120 feet below
the surface.
According to Ash, the new
reef will be a boon to tour-
ism and benefit the diving
industry, related retailers and
restaurants. It will also serve
as a habitat for ocean life and
as an educational resource.
Ash estimates the Miss
Lourdies will be released in


two to six months.
According to Ash, Customs
officials contacted reef experts
in Miami/Dade, Palm Beach
and Broward County about
finding a municipality willing
to take the freighter.
Miami/Dade was not.
interested and Palm Beach
County had just completed a
similar project, so Ken Banks,
Broward's reef expert took the
lead.
Ash's firm does business
with the City of Deerfield
Beach, but his interest is of
a more personal nature. "I've
been talking to Arilton Pavon
at Dixie Divers about such a
reef for awhile," he said.

City commissioners unani-

The city's legal department


will draft an agreement to pro-

A The Polioan


Canines
Continued from page 1
the direct control of a person
capable of controlling the dog.
Any dog that, because of its
aggressive nature, training or
characteristic behavior, pres-
ents a risk of serious physi-
cal harm or death to human
beings, or would constitute a
danger to human life, physical
well-being or property if not
kept under the direct control
of the owner or custodian.
The definition does not
apply to dogs utilized by law
- enforcement officers in the
performance of their duties.
The term dangerous dog,
according to the ordinance,


includes any dog that has
aggressively bitten, attacked,
endangered or inflicted severe
injury on a human being on
public or private property, or
when unprovoked has chased
or approached a person on
the street, sidewalks or any
public grounds in a menacing
fashion or apparent attitude of
attack.
The actions must be attested
to in a sworn statement by one
or more persons and investi-
gated by the town's office of
code enforcement, Broward
County Animal Control or any
law enforcement agency.
A dangerous dog also in-
cludes a dog that has severely
injured or killed a domestic
animal while off the.owner's


. property or has been used
primarily or in part for the
purpose of dog fighting.
The ordinance calls for im-
mediate, continuous physical
control of a dog by means of
a leash, cord, secure fence
or chain of such strength
to restrain the dog and be
controlled by a person capable
of restraining the dog, or safe
and secure restraint within a
vehicle.
In arguing against the
ordinance, Dodd said owners
should be responsible for their
dogs. "It's not the dog's fault.
We have to fine the owners."
Minnet said she had talked
to town staff and the Broward
Sheriff's Office. "They don't
feel we have a problem." She


said the town already has an
ordinance regarding vicious
dogs.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee,
who proposed the ordinance,
said it was a defensive rule.
"We're not going after the
average dog on the street. The
dog has to have bitten some-
one; there has to be activity
by the dog. Some people train
their dogs to be fighters and
attack. Then we have to build
a wall around the dogs. Un-
fortunately, there are people
who abuse dogs."
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone said he supported the
new law, noting, "It makes
sense to have a pro-active,
preventive ordinance."

PELICAN STAFF
On Nov. 19, Don Downie, a city
pioneer and history preservationist,
presented his meticulously drawn map
of early Pompano to the Pompano
Beach Historical Society.
Three copies of this framed 6-foot
by 3-foot map will be installed at the
E. Pat Larkin and Emma Lou Olson
Centers as well as city hall.
This treasure that preserves his-
tory for future generations was started
13 years ago.
Downie says, "Brach Hogan, a
few other pioneers and I have identi-
fied every home with the name of the
pioneer who lived in it. Three quarters
of these homes no longer exist, so
those of us with good memories have
driven up and down the streets and
researched records to get the correct
information. We're all in our mid 70s
to late 80s. We figured if we didn't
document these houses and neighbor-
hoods, who would?"
Downie arrived in Pompano in
1938 when he was five years old. "My
parents came up from North Miami
and settled in," he recalls. "It was so
different then. Everything south of
what is now Atlantic Boulevard was
farm land and swamp from the rail-
road tracks to the Intracoastal."
Downie went through the Pom-
pano school system from grades one
through 12 and takes pride in being a
'Bean Picker.'
He says, "I graduated from Pom-
pano High School in 1952 with a class
of 30."
Downie is full of stories about life
in those good old days. Asked what
made them so good, he says, "There
was no crime. If you misbehaved, you
got a paddling. You never committed
that mistake twice."
"Fun was playing marbles in the

dirt, cowboys and Indians and base-
ball in open places. We made our own
bases. On Saturdays, we would hop
on a truck of laborers and head for
the bean fields to earn money. Satur-
day night we went to Kester's Movie
House, managed by Mr. Case. It was
on First Street and Fourth Avenue.
"It cost 9 cents to see a Western,
RKO news and a cartoon. We didn't
have popcorn because we couldn't
afford it.
"We had to wait until we had a
licensed driver before we could go to
the Fort Lauderdale Theater which
was at Andrews and Las Olas. No one
worried about where we were. They
knew what time we should be 'home,
and we made sure we were on time."
Downie attended Florida State


University until he took his first job
at Tarbett's Pompano Mercantile, the
only hardware store in town. He went
on to do a brief stint as mail carrier
Number '9' until he found his niche in
his father's jewelry store.
"The post office paid better," he
chuckles, "but I knew the jewelry
store offered me a real career."
And it did until he closed the
doors in 1997 when the store was 50
years old.
"Everyone ate lunch at Hirsh-
man's Drug Store lunch counter. It
was there that my dad introduced
me to Rosalyn who became my wife
within a year," he says. "We have two
daughters and three grandchildren.

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
"In a time when you might be
strapped for cash, you can still pre-
plan your final arrangements with
us," says Richard A. Sanacore, sales
manager of Forest Lawn, North. "We
realize that many people would like
to make their wishes known to their
survivors, but cannot afford to do so.
So we sit down with couples and fami-
lies and fill out a form indicating all of
their pre-plan wishes and today's price
for what was selected. We will then
file this form which does not reserve
the -price, but does allow survivors to
fulfill the wishes of a parent, spouse or
other family member without having
to make decisions at an emotional
time of stress and loss."
He admits this idea has been
around for a long time, but the indus-
try has not used it. He feels this is the
perfect time to reintroduce it. "Of
course if a client wishes to augment


a plan at today's prices, we offer a
variety of financial options to suit the
budget."
Sanacore has been in this in-
dustry for 23. years, the last few in
his present job at Forest Lawn. He
stresses the advantages of preplan-
ning. "I couldn't count the number
of times we've seen grieving children
trying to decide what a parent might
have wanted. At this emotional time,
survivors are caught in a vulnerable .
state and many times make costly and
unnecessary decisions. That's why up
to 70 percent of our clients, have made
their final arrangement plans and paid
for them which saves the family emo-
tional and financial stress at the time
of their deaths. I've never seen a son
or daughter be anything but grateful."
Sanacore says about 50 percent
of their business is cremation which
has many advantages and can be more
affordable depending on what follows.
He says, "We do offer a full array of
cremation burial options."


Memorial services have changed
over the years. As part of the Dignity
network, Forest Lawn provides per-
sonalized services. "For example,"
Sanacore says, "A family may bring
in photos taken over a lifetime of the
deceased. We will produce a CD with
appropriate music to show at the me-
morial service. Those who have come
to pay their condolences appreciate
this nostalgic look at the loved one's
life as it was lived. More and more of-
ten, we see uplifting services replacing
the somber settings of the past. At the
request of the family we have helped -
to create some very innovative themed
services that speak to the life of the
deceased."
Forest Lawn North also offers
after funeral reception rooms with full
catering services where the family can
linger and visit with guests, and share
refreshments or a full meal without
having to host condolers in their
homes or in a restaurants when they

ATA grand opening to include program to keep kids safe


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
This holiday season,
parents may be concerned
about the high costs of gifts,
but concerns should also be
heightened about their chil-
dren's safety.
And to find out how to
help children protect them-
selves against predators, ATA
of Pompano Beach, a martial
arts school, 1159 S. Fed.
Hwy., is hosting a child safety
day on Dec. 12 at 5 p.m.
"We try to have a.big
event with our child seminar
and safety classes, so we
decided to host the ribbon
cutting at the same time," says
co-owner Bobbie Shebar.
ATA opened in 2007, but


they never got around to mak-
ing it official with a ribbon
cutting.
Steven Shebar, a fourth-
degree black belt and certified
ACE trainer is very enthusias-
tic about the event.
But he emphasizes the
role of parents.
"We are going to cover
safety awareness," says
Steven. "We will suggest
strategies on how children
should behave with parents at
a playground or mall and what
they should do if separated
and approached by a stranger.
Sometimes a person will offer
gifts to lure children away
from a different area or to a
car."
If a child is taken away
from the parent or guardian


and molested, often they are
sent back to the guardian after
the crime has been committed.
"And sometimes, parents
don't even know a crime has
been committed even if the
child tells them," he says.
"Some parents don't listen,
or they just don't believe the
child."
He adds that sometimes
that kind of response makes
the child think he or she has
done something wrong.
Criminals watch how
parents behave with their chil-
dren at malls and at parks.
"If parents are distracted
and spending time on cell
phones, those actions make
their child more vulnerable to
an abduction," says Steven.
But the wild part of this


event will take place when
Steven gets the kids in the
group to participate.
"We tell them to kick,
scream 'She's not my Mom-
my!' and keep screaming,"
Steven continues.
As far as the fighting
goes, Steven says kids know
how to bite and scream. I tell
them to hit the abductor in the
eyes, nose and groin and keep
screaming."
When he plays the part of
the abductor, Steven wears a
lot of protective clothing.
So what happens-if the


adult involved is not an ab-
ductor but someone trying to
help?
Simple, according to Ste-
ven. The kid made a mistake,
and everybody forgives the
child.
But, most importantly, the
workshop instills power in the
child to fight back and not go
quietly into a stranger's lure.
The evening, while its
topic is a fearsome one, will
be fun for the entire family. It
also includes dinner, spon-
sored by Carrabba's Italian
Grill. Call 954-946-1522.

These days, people are looking for ways
to stretch their dollar while still indulging

of delicious and affordable wines - for
cooking andfor drinking!
For soniefim twists on entertaining,
Carlo Rossi has developed recipes that
are greatfor hosting a backyardparty, a
special celebration orjust dressing tip the
daily dinner table.
The tasty Jug Slider mini burgers may
be small, but they are packed with bold
flavor. First, throw thesebite-sized
burgers on the grill. While they cook,
sautj chopped mushrooms in butter,
scallions, shallots and merlot. Place the
burgers on mini buns and top with the
prepared mushroom sauce. Then set out a
platter and watch everyone dig in.
The grill is alreadyfired up, so why
not make Carlo's Kebabs, as well?
Marinate chunks -of swordfish overnight
in a combination of olive oil, fi-esh dill
Ire and chardonnay. On day two, use a
wooden skewer to line up the swordfish,
wd) alternating thefish with your choice of
fi-esA vegetables� such as onions and red
and green peppers. Pair with a crisp
autumn salad and you have a delicious
meal that is greatfor sharing with
ftiends.
To quench your thirst, Sparkling
Peach Melba brings the comfortfood
classic to a pitcher, while keeping the
sweet, wholesome flavor. Combine
white zinfandel with fi-esh peaches and
raspberries, then top with sparkling
water, fresh mint and ice. This drink is as
refieshing as it is visually stunning, and
can also be made in a large pitcher to
serve as the centerpiece at your meal.
Spiced Sangria is perfectfor any
celebration. In a large pitcher, combine
wine with sliced oranges, cloves,
cinnamon sticks, brewed blackberry tea
and cherries. Top off with seltzer and ice.

14 The Pelican


Highlands
Continued from page 1
Residents in the adjoining
neighborhood, known as the
Highlands, are worried about
the increased heavy truck traf-
fic in their neighborhood,
"We aren't sure whatever
they are supplying will be
safe, but we don't want the
extra traffic. We don't want
the 18-wheelers barreling up
the street for the safety of our
children and animals. We are
trying to fight it but I don't
think we have a say-so," said
Jeannie Vega, a Highlands
resident.
. County Commissionier
Kristin Jacobs also worries
about the safety issues.
"We all agree that every-
one has property rights, and
That if they are given a des-
ignation to*use that property,
they should be able to do so,"
said Jacobs.-"But nobody


should put industrial uses next
to residential homes and use
residential streetsto access it,
but that is what is happening
here."
Because the site sits
between railroad tracks along
Dixie Highway and residential
homes, the only access into
the property will be along a
street shared by families on
one side.
The proposed industrial
complex on the other side is
a situation that Jacobs says
makes her feel a bit helpless.
Pompano Beach Commis-
sioner Charlotte Burrie, who
represents the Highlands area,
said she is also concerned
about safety and about envi-
ronmental issues including
unknown chemicals spills at
the site.
Pompano Zoning Direc-
tor Robin Bird said changing
the usage of the property will
not happen at this point. The


L LIn the end we
can't make it go
away, and that
is what is so frustrating
about the older sections
of the county." - Kristin
Jacobs, Broward County Com-
missioner

reason, he said, lies in the
parcel's designation as I-A, or
industrial use, a designation
that has been in place since
long before Pompano Beach
annexed the area.
He said because the own-
ers of the property are not
violating any laws with their
proposed new development.
All approval for the plat
change and the project has'
sailed through his office, by-
passing the city commission.
County approval for the
plat change may come as
early as next week.


Hillsboro Beach also has
a stake in the development of
the project, as it owns adjoin-
ing property where it has
developed a well field. This
is the town's only source of
drinking water. .. -
Walter Keller, Hillsboro
Beach town planner and engi-
neer, said the town is worried
about contamination of its
water even though county
computer models have shown
that the Hillsboro well field is
.up stream from the warehouse
site.
"In this particular instance
the prior studies done by the
county did not show this site
next to us would impact our
well field, but the town is not
confident that this develop-
ment will not impact our well.
field, should some sort of
chemical spill occur." Keller
said.
Burrie was adamant in
her disapproval of the project


during a recent Highlands
Homeowners Association
meeting where she promised
residents she would look into
what could be done.
Burrie added that she
would attend the county meet-
ing on Dec. 9.
"I don't know if the county
commission will listen to me
about the traffic issue, and
Hillsboro has its water well
issue, but the only plan of at-
tack I have is the traffic issue,
running tractor trailers down a
residential street with children
on it is not a good idea," said
Burrie.
"In the end we can't make
it go away, and that is what is
so frustrating about the older
sections of the county," said
Jacobs. "We're boxed in by
certain rules when it comes
to plat note amendments.
We have extremely limited
authority."

change.
Dodd said he wanted to
go one step further than the
ethics commission.
Silverstone and McIntee
both said they took offense
at that. Both commissioners
have recently returned from
facing the state ethics board.
"The charges against me
and Vice Mayor McIntee
were unfounded pretty much,"
Silverstone said.
In June the State of Florida
Commission on Ethics found
probable cause for possible
violations in three complaints
involving Mcintee and in
two complaints against

Silverstone.
The commission found
McIntee had a prohibited
conflict of interest that could
interfere with the discharge
of his public duties by
virtue of his position as both
commissioner and deputy fire
chief for the Volunteer
Fire Department.
The commission found
probable cause to believe
Silverstone had a "prohibited
conflict" of interest that could
interfere with his official town
duties as commissioner and
fire chief of the VFD. The
state found that Silverston had
a "voting conflict" when he


voted on several occasions to
benefit the VFD.
The commission dismissed
two complaints against
McIntee and cleared him of
charges in another complaint.
Silverstone was cleared of a
fourth complaint.
Silverstone and McIntee
remain members of the VFD
but are no longer paid and no
longer chiefs.
Silverstone asked Dodd his
definition of an employee in
the proposed charter change.
"A person who works for an
organization, whether paid or
not," Dodd said.
"If the [proposed] change
were in effect now, would
it affect anyone here?"
Silverstone asked Dodd.
"It would affect you and the
vice mayor. You couldn't vote
on the VFD," Dodd replied.
"I don't understand the need
for it," Silverstone said.
"I've had extensive contact
with the ethics commission,"
McIntee said.
"Where do you get the
background to say we're the
laughing stock?"
Dodd replied when he
called the commission, the

person he reached said, "We
know exactly where you are.
You're a hotbed of political
intrigue. We get complaints
all the time."
Mclntee responded,
"Certain people generate
complaints."
"They get more than the
average number of complaints
from our town," Dodd said.


Mayor Roseann Minnet
objected to Clottey's
suggestion regarding officials
not soliciting business.
"Some of us work with
residents. Would this mean we
can't do business with anyone
in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea?"
Weiss said banning business
with anyone in town would
be overly broad and wouldn't
be proper. "[The banning of]
using your position to get
business from people in town
could be added."
*


He encouraged officials
to have separate public
and private email accounts
and separate public and
private cellphone accounts.
"Otherwise, if you have
a public records request,
separating the two becomes
quite a project," he said.
Instead of voting on the
proposal, commissioners
agreed to have a workshop on
Jan. 13, along with an already
scheduled workshop on height
limits.
