Deerfield Beach Commissioner

Steve Gonot offers resignation,

surrenders to Broward Sheriff


Commission set to appoint
Gonot's successor
Surprise resignation stalls a
political career
By Judy Wilson
Pelican writer
The Deerfield Beach city com-
mission will name a replacement for
former Commissioner Steve Gonot
at Tuesday's commission meeting,
filling the seat left vacant when Gonot
resigned Thursday morning just before
being booked into the Broward Coun-
ty Jail on 3rd degree felony charges.
Gonot, 42, had served on the com-
mission almost eight years and had an-
nounced his intention to run for mayor
in the March 2009 election.
Gonot surrendered to authorities
before noon on Thursday on felony
counts of grand theft and official mis-
conduct as well as two misdemeanor
charges. His arrest came after a
year-long investigation by the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement, the
Broward Sheriff's Office and the Bro-
ward State Attorney's Office.
The grand theft charge stems from


Gonot allegedly misusing $5,135 in
campaign money for his personal use.
He is also charged with falsifying
campaign finance reports and falsify-
ing records.
Mayor Al Capellini, who opened
his own bank account this week to
seek re-election for a fifth term, said
"It's a sad day for the city especially
now when we have so many important
things to do."
But he added that within an hour
of Gonot's resignation letter received
in the city clerk's office, he has had
over 50 phone calls "from people all

PELICAN WRITER
The sea took another chunk of Hills-
boro Beach sand two weeks ago creat-
ing enough damage to merit a state-
of-emergency order that will allow the
residents of Hillsboro Yacht Villas to
make temporary beach repairs.
Waves and strong tides took 15 feet
of dune and left one resident's patio 15
feet from a 12-foot drop into the wa-
ter. Condominium board member Rick
Wilson said the property has never
lost so much sand before. The latest

restaurant set for

expansion hits

road bump at

city meeting
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Plans to expand Galuppi's-on-the-
Green restaurant at the Pompano
Beach Municipal Golf Course hit a
snag when commissioners discovered
they didn't have all the information on
the project.
Dr. Richard Porraro, a member of
the city's golf advisory committee,
told commissioners that the advice
of his committee had not been taken
into consideration before Pat Galuppi,
lessee of the city property where the
restaurant is located, moves forward
with plans to renovate and expand the
facility.

share space with the city's
golf club, and advisory mem-
bers had some concerns. But
those concerns did not reach
the commission backup infor-
mation packets in time for the
meeting.,
"I don't understand. Admin-
istration should have included


exhibits, original contract
and new contract, not just the
[contract] amendment," said
Vice Mayor George Brummer.
City Manager Keith
Chadwell called the error a
' "grievous oversight" and of-
fered to pull the item.
Instead the project was
tabled until Jan. 13 for a first
reading, and Galuppi says
that's fine.

don't blame Brummer. But
now we have time to get our
ducks in a row."
"Porraro's argument was
that this was about golf," said
Brummer later. "You have to
admit that. There is enough
of a reason for them to be
involved. I read the back up,
but I don't know what this
looks like. I don't know what
Gallupi's doing. It was a glar-
ing omission."
Porraro brought those omis-
sions before the dais.
"The course is there to serve
.golfers," said Porraro. "We
have a valuable interest in
this course. Mr. Galuppi has
violated his lease from day
one. What repercussions do
the golfers have? There are
none."
Porraro referred to areas on
the property that he believes
delineates the restaurant from
the golf facilities.
Galuppi admits that there


are some gray areas in the
property usage. He said city
staff had suggested that a ren-
dering with specific space use
be drawn up, a job that will
get done next week.
Galuppi says the original
lease failed to point out areas
that are just for golf and just
for the restaurant.
"I want to know what's
mine and what's not mine,"
he said.
So do the golf advisory
board members. Part of their
concerns included noise and
music from the sports bar fa-
cility that abuts the path used
by golfers on golf course.
That path runs into a small
bridge that crosses a small
lake, equipped with fountains
and is a favorite spot for wed-
ding pictures.
Dr. Porraro explained that
photographers and golf carts
couldn't be on the bridge at
the same time.

The advisory board also
asked that provisions for "vio-
lating boundaries" need to be
addressed.
Porraro said that originally,
Galuppi had included a $400
per month increase in the
agreement.
The new agreement has no
increase. Galuppi pays the
city about $57,000 annually
for use of the restaurant.
Galuppi explains. "Original-
ly I planned a $500,000 im-
provement, and I was willing
to pay an additional $400."
But he adds that with the
economic outlook, he reduced
his expansion to $250,000.
The project includes extend-
ing the lease for 30 years,
construction of a 1,620 sq. ft.
storage building, the addition
of a gazebo near the lake for
ceremonies and a patio exten-
sion to the main dining'room.
The project will be dis-
cussed at the Jan. 13 commis-
sion meeting.

Cross Stitch Cupboard brings a little

bit of North Carolina to South Florida


Karen Owen, Wanda Irvin and Kathy Swartzwelder have been business partners for 27 years. What started as a small kiosk
at the Coral Ridge Mall in Fort Lauderdale, is now 4,000 sq. ft. store with unique items and a complete Vera Bradley
store. [Below] The Cupboard's front porch is a familiar sight in Wilton Manors. [Photos by Anne Siren]

PELICAN STAFF
Wanda Irwin, Karen Owen
and Kathy Swartzwelder
haven't missed much of each
other's lives since they grew
up together in Wilton Manors
and were schoolmates at Fort
Lauderdale High School.
Graduaton, college, mar-
riage and children only added
more dimension to their
friendships.
Although each woman is
distinctly different, they share
a lot. Their husbands are
friends and also former high
school classmates. All three
couples graduated in the same
class. Their children, nine in
all, are also friends. But these
three women are partners in
a business that has grown to
be a symbol of friendship,
creativity and uniqueness.
Cross Stitch Cupboard,
1600 NE 26 St., Wilton
Manors, boasts 4,000 sq. ft.
of gifts, home decor, holiday
decorations, candles, hand-
made specialty items and
needle work. It isn't just a
cross stitch store. They added
gifts 26 years ago, and they
have a loyal group of custom-
ers from the tri-county area
and beyond.
These three business wom-
en buy what they like so there
is always a very special mix
of unique gifts that change
with the seasons.
"The front door is dedicated
to each holiday throughout
the year and is always fun for
us to do," says Wanda. "Our
customers love to be surprised
with a new look when they
walk in."


The Cupboard is a Vera
Bradley gold dealer with a
designated "store within a
store." The Vera area is warm
and inviting with comfortable
chairs so clients and friends
can leisurely look at the hand-
bags, accessories, luggage and
stationery.
Cross Stitch carries every
Vera Bradley item in every
color, so customers can al-
ways find what they want.
Other specialty items are the
Eliza B sandals and Swith-
flops that coordinate with any
outfit and are especially fun in
South Florida.
The holidays are a special
time to visit Cross Stitch
Cupboard. Visitors will see 15
different trees, holiday gifts
and decorating ideas to bring
the holiday home.
The Cupboard also carries
Byers Choice carolers from
Pennsylvania; Whispering
Pine Santas from Washington;
Jim Shore carvings and Dept.


56 houses and accessories.
The Cupboard is also one of
the first stores to have the new
Junior League of Fort Lau-
derdale's cookbook, Paradise
Served, recently released.
Cross Stitch began in 1981
at Coral Ridge Shopping Cen-
ter where Wanda, Karen and
Kathy taught counter cross-
stitching. The popular craft
was sweeping the country in
the 80s, and this trio caught
the wave.
At Cross Stitch Cupboard
the art still flourishes.
For serious stitchers and
beginners, Cross Stitch Cup-
board has everything from
specialty fibers, linens and
accessories to expert finishers
for cross stitch and needle-
point.
A stitchers' group meets
weekly at Cross Stitch to learn
new methods and enjoy the
fellowship of sewing together.

Pompano Beach armed gunman, rapist nabbed by BSO

special operations, more charges expected to come


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
A rapist/robber who had
been stalking the beachfront
from October to December in
Pompano Beach was caught
by Broward Sheriff Officers
this week after a BSO decoy
couple noticed a man acting
"suspiciously."
Contact with the suspect
took place at 3:45 a.m. near
Southeast 4 Street and Briny
Avenue.
The FBI joined BSO in the
investigation that led to the ar-
rest of Donovan Bryan, 25, a
resident of Coconut Creek.
At a news conference this
week, Pompano Beach Mayor
Lamar Fisher said, "I thank
BSO for setting up special
units to get this man off the


streets and stop further harm
to our residents and visitors."
When undercover detec-
tives approach Bryan, he did
not resist. Asked if they could
search his car, Bryan agreed.
Detectives found a 9mm
Glock handgun and a mask in
the suspect's 1999 dark green
Nissan Maxima parked near
the beach.
District 1 Commissioner
Barry Dockswell added his
thanks to BSO. Dockswell
had previously emailed alerts
to beach residents regard-
ing the crime spree. He said
he plans to institute a group
to develop a crime aware-
ness program to ensure quick
notification to residents and
business owners on and near
the beach area.
Bryan was responsible for


Bryan
four known incidents on the
beach, and BSO asked that
any other victims who may
not have reported an incident
to come forward with infor-
mation.
The first incident took place
Oct. 25 at 5:30 a.m. when a
couple, both 26, were robbed.
Bryan allegedly tried to rape
the female, but she kicked
him away. The suspect es-
caped with cash.
On Nov. 15, a 30-year-old


woman reported that she had
been raped. The incident took
place at 4 a.m. on Nov. 14.
The victims reported that the
suspect, wearing a mask and
carrying a gun, forced the
couple to have sex, stopped
them and raped the female
victim.
On Nov. 28, the gunman
approached a teenage couple.
He asked for money and fled
empty-handed.
The last occurrence took
place on Nov. 30 at 4 a.m.
when a Pennsylvania couple
was approached by a masked
gunman and robbed of $300.
Bryan, a Jamaican national,
is in the U.S. illegally. Prior
to Florida, he resided in New
Jersey where he reportedly
attended Rutgers University.
Bryan has been charged with
sexual battery and armed
robbery. Most charges are
expected.
Anyone with information is
asked to call 954-321-4210.

Isle Casino

adds twist 'Bail-

out' trends

for homeless

centers, players

and auto

industry
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Now players can head for the slots
and even if they lose, plenty of others
will win. Susan Selnick, Isle Casino
special events manager, explains.
"For everyone who plays our new
Burning Wheels Mystery Jackpot Slot
machines,
The Isle� Casino Pompano Park
will donate $1 to Boca Helping Hands
with a minimum of $1,000. But this
month that number could soar as an
anonymous donor has agreed to match
all donations up to $100,000."
That's good for the people who are
really in trouble with nothing but char-
ity to keep them fed and clothed. But
the Isle has another bonus for the play-
ers themselves.
"Everyone who plays the Burn-
ing Wheels Mystery Jackpot Slot
machines gets a keychain. Every 15
minutes a player on the "hot seat" of a
Burning Wheels Mystery Jackpot Slot
machine will win a prize, including
$1,000 cash; IslePlay ranging from
$25 to $100; dinner for two at the Isle
Buffet, Myron's Delicatessen and Far-
raddays' Steakhouse; Isle gift cards for
$20 for $100," says Selnick.
Even as the Big Three auto dealers
are seeking their own bail-outs, Isle
officials are ready to boost sales with
a new GM car give-a-way every 45
days for anyone who plays the burning
slots.
Isle� Casino Pompano Park, located
on Race Track Road in Pompano
Beach, has 1,500 slots, 38 poker ta-
bles, three restaurants and new racing
amenities including a high-tech sports
bar and wagering area overlooking the
track.
Isle Casino is one of 18 casinos
owned and operated by Isle of Capri

PELICAN STAFF
The school board of Broward
County offers education in more ways
than most residents realize. The Teen
Parent Program is one example of
reaching out to help a very vulnerable
group of teen girls, and even boys,
from 12 to 22 who become parents
without any plan or preparation.
Teens in this predicament do not
need to drop out of school into a dead
end job. The Charles Drew Family
Resource Center, 2600 NW 9 Court in
Pompano Beach, under the umbrella
of the Dave Thomas Education Center,
offers hope and help.
About the program
Resident social worker, Mary
Hamilton shares a shocking statistic.
"Every Year, close to a million girls
become pregnant in our country. The
Teen Parenting Program reaches out to
the girls in Broward County providing
them the opportunity to complete their
high school education while their ba-
bies receive free day care in our well
staffed and equipped nursery. Learn-
ing how to parent is an important part
of their education. "
She continued. "We are one
of three such programs in Broward
County. The students come to us on
their own or through school referrals.
"When a teen enters our program we
conduct an orientation with the teen
and the guardian citing our two goals.
Goal one is for the teen parent to
graduate high school. Goal two is that
the teen parent develops the best set
of parenting skills possible. We offer
many services such as transportation,
free day care, parenting and child
development, a supplemental food
program for pregnant and parenting
moms and their babies. We're up and
running from 8:30 to 4:15. There's a

for babies and moms on campus."
The experience of our teens is uti-
lized in the program, Teen Speak Out,
a pregnancy prevention model. Our
students write a five minute speech
describing their demanding experience
of being a teen parent.
We travel monthly to area high
schools and middle schools where
our teens share their experiences and
encourage other teens to wait to be-
come a parent until they have finished
school, are financially independent
and in a committed married relation-
ship. Addressing their challenges in an


honest way gets through to their peers
and aids prevention in a positive way."
A student's opinion
Tania Gonzalez is in her second
year of the Teen Parent Program. She
says, "The program is very nice. They
have helped me and my 22 month old
son, Brandon Mendoza a lot with a
support group, meals when we're here,
transportation and free day care. My
goal is to graduate and go to college.
I want to become a pharmacy techni-
cian. I'm also a violinist. My son
loves to hear me play. I will teach him
how and maylre other children, too."

Pompano Beach committee

inspects one of the highest

structures in Southeast Florida
By Norbert Izworski
PELICAN WRITER
On Dec. 4, 2008, the Recycling and Solid Waste Committee of Pompano
Beach toured the Waste Management Landfill.
This structure consists of a manmade trash heap that covers 400 acres at a
height of 225 feet.
Every day there is a continuous parade of 300 garbage trucks unloading
5,000 tons of solid waste and construction debris from Pompano Beach and
surrounding communities. Before the current economic downturn, this amount
was double what it is now.
According to Claudia McMahon, chairperson of this committee, "It is unbe-
lievable the amount of trash, food waste, recyclables and unwanted stuff dis-
carded in this way. With a little effort, much of this could be Reduced, Reused
or Recycled."
This landfill has only another 14 years' worth of capacity remaining. How-
ever, if we are'hit by another major hurricane like Wilma, that could be reduced
by several years.
Currently some of the construction debris from this area is being hauled
to the Okeechobee Landfill, and when our landfill is filled to capacity, Waste
Management will haul all solid waste to Okeechobee. The added transportation
costs will more than double the cost of waste disposal.
This year over 100,000 tons of municipal trash was removed from Pompano
Beach alone. '
Waste Management is doing a very responsible job at the landfill. The base
of the landfill has been properly prepared and lined with impervious plastic to
avoid base leakage.
The liquid that forms as a part of the natural decomposition, called leachate,
is collected and sent to the Broward County Waste Water Plant. At the end of
each day a foot of dirt is spread over the deposited trash to eliminate any odor.
Once a section of the landfill is filled, it is covered by additional dirt then
covered with heavy plastic. Vertical pipes are sunk deep down and a vacuum
system draws the methane out of the ground.
The methane is then used to power generators that create electricity for
about 10,000 homes.
Methane represents 16 percent of all greenhouse gases emitted into the at-
mosphere, and landfills are one of the major man made sources. Since methane
is over 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmo-
sphere, methane's overall climate impact is nearly half that of carbon dioxide.
Be good to the earth, and reduce the amount of trash you generate. Recycle
items allowed, and reuse useful items instead of throwing them away.

TLC Contracting provides a headache free

remodeling of home interiors and exteriors
By Phyllis J. Neuberger . - -.


PELICAN WRITER
Clients sing the praises of Nancy
Nieto's company, TLC Contracting
or Tower and Land Communications.
Patti Bendit says, "I live in a small
two bedroom home in Lighthouse
Point.
Looking for more space, I consulted
with Nancy who figured out how
to turn our garage into an enlarged
kitchen and family room. It's been a
God send to us and has added value
to the home. Visitors can't believe
this new area was once a garage. I'd
recommend TLC to anyone. In fact,
I'm considering adding a bathroom
and if anyone can figure out how to do
it, Nancy can."
Julie Mills is another happy custom-
er who says, "We had a very destruc-
tive electrical fire in our home and
it caused a lot of hidden and visable
damage. Time estimates for repairs
were around nine months. TLC did
the work in four months, explaining
what needed to be done all along the
way. They were on time, on schedule

Erosion
Continued from page 1
occurred last spring.
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection engineer Wesley
Fitch said he considers the site
an emergency. "With the sea-
wall to the north, the waves
channel right onto that hot
spot," he said. "There is the
potential for that old building
to collapse."
The condo board has 30
days from the time the docu-
mented date of the erosion to
come up with an emergency
plan.
Fitch said the state will ap-
prove the fill. The 200 cubic
yards would build the dune up
about eight feet but he termed
that action only a "band aid."
The other temporary solu-
tion is to build a retaining
wall and backfill it with sand.
Without true figures he
estimates the cost at $300,000
to be paid for by the owners
of the 72 units at the Yacht
Villas.
"There is a lesson here for
the politicians," Wilson said.
"Renourishment does not
work permanently. We should
plan on beach maintenance

- Fitch
every six to eight years. Now,
we're in the 11th hour."
Although the cost for each
unit owner will be substantial,
it's not the main issue. The
beach, Wilson said, "is our
most important asset. That's
why we are leaning so hard to
do something now."
The goal, Fitch said, is for
the beach to make it through
the winter months.
Town officials are in the
process of obtaining permits
for a major revetment which
should be ready by November


of 2009.
Like the renourishment
program of 10 years ago,
sand will be dumped on
the north mile and a half of
beach where erosion takes
the greatest toll. Plans are to
bring in 375,000 cubic yards
of fill, enough to widen the
beach to 75 feet. FEMA funds
are available and the state's
Strategic Beach Management
Fund may be tapped, Fitch
said.
A system of underwater
"baffles" designed to trap
sand was installed recently
just north of the Yacht Villas
and monitoring reveals there
is some accretion of sand in
those locations.

and wonderful to work with. I
recommend them highly."
Nieto smiles with pleasure
at these recommendations,
and says, "Most of our busi-
ness comes to us through
referrals like those."
Before opening TLCi.i i
2001, Nieto was an executive
with a publicly traded firm but
as a single parent, she needed
more flexibility.
"Opening my own busi-.
ness gave me more time to
be involved in my children's
lives," she explains.' "What
began as a communication
tower business morphed into
a full, turn key construction
service. I am a fully insured,
licensed general contractor..


Although westill provide"
communication .services to
Florida PoLer and Light,,
Corncast and Metro PCS, our
focus no\\ is on providing
homeowners with headache
free remodels."
Nieto offers full project
management. permitting and
design giving the client a
- promise of constant attention
to detail, a solidified time
schedule and a worry free,
satisfactory result, which is
guaranteed.
The owner admits, "It takes
a tremendous amount of co-
ordination to produce the de-
sired end product. Those who
try to do it themselves are the
first to advise friends that it
would have been more cost
effective to hire a professional
like me to take the heartaches


and unexpected costs out of
the picture."
TLC has in-house crews
who are skilled and licensed
tradesmen in electrical,
plumbing and in the design of
tile installation. In the refig-
uring of space the use of all
three trades is involved. "We
help the customer's budget
by providing the best sources
for counter tops, cabinets
and appliances which are the
most expensive items in a
remodel," Nieto says, adding,
"If clients want me to, I will
go along with them when they
are selecting at no extra cost.
It's just another accommo-
dation. We even do before,
during and after pictures for
our out of owners who get
a progress report via e-mail,
saving them unnecessary
trips while the work is being
done."
One of the biggest trends in
exterior remodeling is the ga-


rage conversion such as Patti
Bendit described. Nieto says,
"Most of us end up parking in
the driveway and the garage
becomes a cluttered storage
area. Refiguring can save stor-
age space and also add about
300 square feet of living space
for family rooms, exercise
rooms, offices or whatever is
needed."
She urges families who are
still living with damage from
Wilma to be aware of type
three mold which is danger-
ous and urgently needs to be
corrected.
Whether the remodel is a
kitchen, bath, garage conver-
sion, or room addition, Nieto
describes her goal "I try to
finish as quickly as possible
by doing detailed coordination
and careful project manage-
ment."

Da Campo Osteria, a celebrity chef brings his Italian vision to the

shores of the Intracoastal Waterway near Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

Nestled in the posh 11 Lu-
gano Hotel, da Campo Osteria
is a splendid little restaurant
overlooking the Intracoastal
waterway near the Oakland
Park Boulevard Bridge. Its
whimsical Northern Italian
menu is the brainchild of

From cannoli to honey ricotta donut
balls, a da Campo dessert tops this

portion of cheese curds and
boiling salt water. While stoi-
cally scalding his hands, he
stretches the amorphous paste
into a delectable ball of fresh
mozzarella. This specialty
comes with an assortment of
old-country favorites such
as heirloom tomatoes, olive

balsamic vinegar, pickled

Gift Smarts

Yummy Holiday

Gift Ideas
Holiday shopping and entertaining
don't have to be all about stress and
overindulging. ShapeUpMom Kathryn
Sansone, author, fitness trainer, busy
mother of 10 and creator of shapeupmom.
com, has some great gift giving and
entertaining tips that will help you have
fun and still eat smart over the holidays.
Start by getting organized! This year,
make a point to create a file of gift
recipients. From teachers, mailmen and
hairdressers to neighbors, family and
friends, file each recipient into a category
and add what gift they received-this year.
Next year, it will facilitate the gift-buying
and gift-giving process and offer gift
ideas you may have forgotten.
Shop from friends or make it yourself.
Buy gifts from friends and family who
have small businesses. Another option
is to make gifts yourself. Not only does
it show your thoughtfulness, but it
highlights your creativity.
Selecting Secret Santa gifts. If you're
asked to be a Secret Santa to someone
this year, give a gift that most everyone
enjoys - coffee and chocolates. Buy a
creative mug that speaks to the person's
taste, a gift card to a local coffee shop
and some deliciously crunchy Weight
Watchers@ chocolate candies. To make
it even more special, prepare pretzel rods
dipped in chocolate along with caramel-
pecan cranberries. Place them in a mug,
tie it with a festive bow and attach a
recipe card.

holidays merry, visit weightwatchers.

Chocolate Caramel Fondue With
Fresh Fruit
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 3/4 cup fondue
Serves: 5
2 (3-ounce) packages Weight
Watchers Caramel
Medallions
1/4 cup fat-free milk
2 1/2 cups mixed sliced fruit (straw-
berries, banana, apple)
Fill medium pot halfway with water.
Cover pot with metal bowl that fits snugly
over pot, ensuring that bowl's bottom is
not submerged in water. Bring water to a
boil over medium-high heat.
Add caramels and milk to bowl, stirring
to ensure even melting. When caramels
are halfway melted, reduce heat to
medium and continue stirring. When
milk is fully incorporated and caramels
are melted, fondue is done. Serve fondue
with 1/2 cup sliced fruit per person.
Good idea: You can also dip strawberries
or dried apricots into fondue and chill
in the refrigerator to make delicious
caramel-covered fruits.


"It is an art. People don't
realize how amazing warm
and freshly prepared moz-
zarella can be" says sous-chef
Acosta. "This dish and the
incredible menu were devised
by executive chef Seth High
and Todd English."
We enjoyed a Pinot Noir
with our mozzarella. Da Cam-
po Osteria offers a substantial
wine list of complementary
favorites from many vinicul-
tural areas of the world. By
the glass or bottle, every level
of sophistication is avail-
able. The sommelier, Marius
Zemache, will be glad to offer
advice.
We then enjoyed a house
specialty, the Fig & Prosciutto
pizza. Baked a copper-plated


dome oven, the thin-crust piz-
zas with a base of Gorgonzola
cheese is flashed cooked in 2
minutes as the oven is kept at
a scorching 12000F.
Also on the menu is a
mouth-watering selection
of home-made pastas. The
Linguine Vongole loaded with
clams, pancetta and chilies is
a modified classic while the
Penne with shrimp, arugula
and candied lemon will likely
be a new discovery.
As a main course, the Yel-
lowtail Snapper Marsala is a
perfectly grilled fish, smoth-
ered in a mushroom loaded
balsamic vinegar, chicken
stock and Marsala reduction
with fresh arugula salad on

Dipped Pretzel Rods With
Chocolate, Caramel-Pecan and
Cranberries
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Refrigeration Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4
4 pieces Weight Watchers
Pecan Crowns
1 tablespoon fat-free milk
1/4 cup dried cranberries or
dried fruit of choice, chopped
4 large pretzel rods
Fill bottom portion of double boiler
halfway with water and bring to a steady
boil. Combine Pecan Crowns and milk
in top portion of double boiler and place
over boiling water. Reduce heat to a
simmer and gently stir candies until just
melted. Remove from heat promptly
and stir in cranberries. (If double boiler
is unavailable, bring 4 cups water to
a steady boil in a medium sauce pot.
Combine ingredients in a small heat-
resistant bowl and place over sauce pot.)
Line small tray with aluminum foil.
Spoon equal amounts chocolate-caramel
mixture onto each pretzel rod, leaving
about 1/4 of each pretzel without
chocolate-caramel coating. Place
coated pretzel rods on tray and chill in
refrigerator until coating becomes slightly
hardened, about 10 minutes.
Good idea: For casual holiday
entertaining, you can easily double
or triple this recipe. Prepare the night
before, and keep coated pretzel rods in
the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Baked Candy Apples
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 to 40 minutes
Serves: 4
4 unpeeled Granny Smith apples
(or your favorite apples)
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cinnamon sticks
1 3-ounce bag Weight
Watchers Pecan Crowns or
Caramel Medallions
Preheat oven to 350�F. Using a melon
baller or paring knife, de-stem and core
each apple, leaving the bottoms intact.
Place cored apples in 8-inch glass baking
dish. Pour water around apples in baking
dish. Add lemon juice and cinnamon
sticks.
Cut candies into 1/4-inch pieces. Set
aside 8 teaspoons. Place remaining candy
pieces into each apple.
Place apples in oven and bake until
apples are thoroughly cooked and fork-
tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove
from oven briefly and top each apple with
2 teaspoons candy. Return to oven and
bake until candy is just melted, about 3 to
5 minutes. Remove promptly and serve
warm.
Good idea: For extra low-calorie
decadence, add a dollop of fat-free
whipped topping to each apple before
serving.

Cross Stitch
Continued from page 3

"They learn from each
other," says Karen. "The same
group has been meeting since
2001. They are always the
first to see our new items."
"The common denominator
is the love to stitch. We have
a pharmacist, a librarian and
a teacher in the group," adds
Karen.
"It's a very relaxing hobby,"
says Kathy. "Some people say
they can't wait to get home to
stitch."
Now the stitching group is
joining the store owners in


celebrating 20 years at the
Cupboard.
But not in the traditional
way.
Wanda, Karen and Kathy
decided to hail the 20th year
in business by contributing
funds to build a Habitat Home
in Dania. The family should
be moving in by Christmas.
Hand-crafted ornaments for
their firit Christmas tree are
already made by customers
and the stitching group.
The Cupboard's generosity
isn't new. For the past five
years, the store has collected
Thanksgiving items for a
needy family from a local
school. "We buy the turkey

and fresh produce for the

says Kathy.
Cross Stitch Cupboard looks
like a small piece of North
Carolina supplanted in the
midst of Fort Lauderdale.
That was no accident.
Ensconced by shade trees,
a large welcoming porch and
plenty of parking, this store
has a warm and inviting feel
to it.
"We treat our customers
as if they were guests in our
home," says Karen. "We keep
our customers in mind when
we go on buying trips and buy
what we know they would
like."
"Many people just come
in to browse, and on a daily
basis, we hear them say,
'I feel like I'm in North
Carolina,'" says Kathy.
But whether it's North
Carolina or Maine, customers
will receive a warm welcome
at Cross Stitch Cupboard
from the first visit. For more

Lighthouse A'Glow

draws thousands to

Frank McDonough Park


By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER
The snowflakes danced
merrily. The A dee jay kept
Yuletide music flowing, and
Santa was quite jolly.
The 5th annual Lighthouse
A'Glow celebration in Light-
house Point brought neighbors
together from throughout this
small city to launch the holi-
day season.
Last week, Frank Mc-
Donough Park was the scene
of the gathering that included
excited kids and cheery par-
ents.
The venue featured
holiday singing, dancing, face
painting, snowball throwing
and much more.
The founder of the event,
Jane McLaughlin, a former
city commissioner, said she
wanted to make sure this
neighborhood event would be
memorable for all.
Real Dancing Group and


Grant's Dance Studio took
the stage with interpretations
of holiday classics.
The Girl Choir of South
Florida was also on hand to
deliver renditions of favorite
seasonal songs.
After the musical compo-
nent ended, Santa arrived in
his all-terrain sleigh to join
Mayor Fred Schorr in lighting
the big Christmas tree.
With a flick of St. Nick's
wrist, the huge conifer began
to glow happily with myriad
lights and artistic ornaments
of all varieties.
"This is the kind of event
that makes Lighthouse Point
special," said Chip Lamarca,
a city commissioner who was
involved in the planning of
the event.
Mayor Schorr agreed.
"The positive response to this
wonderful event will ensure
that we will keep doing this

over who are so relieved."
Gonot was the principal
antagonist in a long-run-
ning conflict that resulted
in the firing of former city
manager Larry Deetjen two
years ago. "It was a disas-
sembling of a city that was
working well," Capellini
said. Many of Deetjen's top
administrators including a
police chief, a fire chief and
the economic development
director moved on to other
cities or retired as a result of
the tension.
While there are currently
two candidates for the Dis-
trict 4 seat held by Gonot,
Mayor Capellini said he
would not favor appointing
either of them to fill Gonot's


term. "It would be perceived
by the public to be stack-
ing the election," the mayor
said.
The short time remaining
in the term, two and a half
months and six commis-
sion meetings, would not be
enough time to give either
candidate the experience
needed to serve and could
open him up for criticism
the mayor pointed out.
Steve Miller, co-chair of
the failed recall of Gonot
said, "His stupid mistakes
finally brought things to the
forefront. It makes us feel a
little better about our recall
effort."
Duke Struck, who
worked with business man
Boinis to develop a restau-
rant at the pier said, "We
became with familiar with
Gonot during our attempts


to do business in Deerfield.
Based on our experience, we
are not surprised."
Struck and Boinis gave
sworn testimony to the state
attorney regarding their own
dealings with Gonot.
In his resignation let-
ter, Gonot said the charges
against him are unfounded
and that he is innocent.
"It is my strong belief that
these charges are political
in nature. Nonetheless, it is
appropriate that I resign my
position and focus my at-
tention on defending against
these charges so that I may
be exonerated and once
again serve this city."
People close to Deerfield
Beach politics were amazed
at the sudden turn of events.
"It's a glorious day," said
Chamber of Commerce

She lists them. "We have Girl

"Our curriculum is com-

this Teen Parent Program in
1987. I love our babies. It's
thrilling to see them grow and
develop. It's rewarding to see
the inexperienced teens turn
into a confident parents. Right
now we have 93 teens, includ-
ing a few boys, and 78 babies
who are anywhere from four
weeks old to about two and
one half. By the time the ba-
bies reach this age, the mom
usually has a plan. I have a
staff of 10; most have CDAs,
or Child Development Asso-
ciate degrees. After graduat-
ing, several of our teens have
become CDAs and come to
work for us and that has been
very gratifying."
Amanda's Mommy
and Me Class
The Pelican had the op-
portunity to sit in on Karlene
Whitney's Mommy and
Me class for teens and their
newborn to 12 month old
babies. Amanda's Place sends


this well trained teacher to the
Teen Parenting Program twice
a month. "I've been doing
classes here with the teens and
their babies for the past five
years," Whitney says. "We
have developed wonderful
ways through reading, music,
dance, crafts and interactive
play to help these moms and
dads bond with their babies.
They learn how to stimulate
and enjoy their babies. The
babies thrive on this experi-
ence."
Whitney is a full time
teacher and former director
of Amanda's Place which has
been doing parenting classes
for Moms and Dads for 25
years here in Pompano Beach.
Amanda's Place is also part of
the Dave Thomas Education,
Center.

New entry
signs planned
for Lighthouse
Point
By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER
Lighthouse Point city com-
missioners will decide on new
signs for the city on Jan. 13.
A "monument" style
sign will likely be placed at
intersection of Sample and
Federal Highway. Post and
panel signs will be erected
at smaller city access points.
Cost for all signs could reach
$30,000. Monument signs
range between $10,000 and
$15,000 while the smaller
signs can range anywhere
from $1,000 to $9,000.
Commissioner Mike Long
asked that all signage be
consistent in color, shape and
general look.
The length of the name,
"City of Lighthouse Point,"
does not allow for much
verbiage on entryway signs.
Mayor Fred Schorr suggested
that all entryway signs simply

state "Lighthouse Point" and
nothing else.
In other news, commis-
sioners passed a resolution
approving the Disaster Relief
Funding Agreement for Fed-
eral and state assistance for
Tropical Storm Fay between
the city and the state. The city
had incurred costs of $15,000
in last August's storm.
The agreement will allow
the city to be eligible for 75
percent of the costs from
FEMA and 12.5 percent from
the state. The city would ab-
sord 12.5 percent.
Commissioners also
renewed a Mutual Aid
Agreement for Voluntary
Cooperation and Operational
Assistance with Broward
County Law Enforcement
Agencies. Police Chief Ross
Licata said the 10-year agree-
ment was about to expire.
"This allows our police of-
ficers to receive and give aid
as needed," said Ross.


The commission renewed
Law Enforcement Mutual Aid
Agreement with the Sheriff of
Broward County to provide
traffic enforcement across ju-
risdictional boundaries. Chief
Licata said this would be done
in an effort to curb the grow-
ing number of accidents and
cases of aggressive driving. It
also allows police from one
jurisdiction to pull over dan-
gerous drivers in neighboring
jurisdictions.
One resident complained
that despite the closing of
Northeast 28 Court, vehicles
from Sheehan Pontiac were
still using residential streets to
conduct test drives by exit-
ing through the back of their
premises.
She asked that the back
exit of Sheehan Pontiac be
closed permanently. Mayor
Schorr replied that Tom Shee-
han, the owner of the proper-
ty, had committed to eliminat-
ing test drives on residential
streets. Chief Licata said his
officers have been strictly
enforcing the rules.
