after an agreement on some
changes in the 30-year lease.
One change is.the issu-
ance of an $8 million tax-free
bond to free capital for Shel-
tAir to begin improvements at
the park including the airpark
reception building and offices.
The use of municipal
bonds became an issue at the
meeting prior to the vote of
approval of the lease.
Commissioner Barry
Dockswell had some concerns
that the city could be liable
for the $8 million bond if the
company defaulted.
City Manager Keith
Chadwell explained that mu-
nicipal bonds are commonly
used by cities if there is a
benefit to the community.
"The borrower [SheltAir]
can receive more favorable
rates," said Chadwell. "The
improvements to the city will
be of mutual benefit to the
city and the community."
Chadwell adds that new
jobs will be created over the
next decade, services will be
upgraded, landscaped areas
will be renovated and pres-
ent hangars will be improved.


Sheltair will also be construct-
ing new hangars as well.
"I'm happy about them as
a company," Chadwell said.
Another change in the
lease includes a 1-cent
increase charge that totals a
5-cent charge paid to the city
for aviation fuel dispensed at
the park.
Pompano Beach Airport
was constructed during World
War II as a satellite-train-
ing field serving the Naval
Air Station located at what
is now Fort Lauderdale-Hol-
lywood International Airport.
On Aug. 29, 1947, the City
of Pompano Beach obtained
the airport under the Surplus
Property Act of 1944 and re-
named it Pompano Beach Air
Park, due to its intent to limit
the airport's usage to general
aviation. For the same reason,
the city shortened Runway
15-33 from its original length
of 5,000 feet to its current
length of 4,420 feet in 1971.
SheltAir Aviation Ser-
vices was founded in the 60s
when Gerald M. Holland,
owner and president of Shel-
tAir Aviation Services, started
Holland Builders Inc., a gen-
eral aviation development and
contracting company. In 1988,

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea to

Commissioners unanimously
agreed to draft an ordinance
restricting vendor contribu-
tions in local elections and
calling for restrictions on
contributions to candidates.
Vendors include businesses
doing or proposing to do busi-
ness with the city.
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone proposed the ordinance
and also wanted limitations on
campaign contributions, such
as a $6,000 limit on campaign
spending to prevent a wealthy
person from buying a seat and
to prevent corruption.
Town Attorney Dan Abbott
said campaign contributions
are subject to First Amend-
ment protection. He said the
town can't limit what people


spend on their own campaigns
since "the Constitution allows
us to speak with our re-
sources." But they could place
limits on campaign contribu-
tions from others.
The state of Florida has lim-
its of $500 on contributions.
Abbott said local govern-
ments could impose a lesser
amount, such as limiting
campaign contributions to
amounts less than $500 per
individual.
He said the town could
prohibit contributions from
vendors or potential vendors.
Silverstone asked about
limiting contributions from
corporations or unions. Abbott
said the U.S. Supreme Court
says corporations have First
Amendment rights. He said
some have forced them to
form Political Action Com-
mittees.

"If folks like the air park

Hillsboro

Continuedfrom page 1

cost estimated by consultant
CH2M Hill is $4.2 million,
an expense that will be borne
over five years to avoid bur-
dening residents with a major
assessment.
"It was high time we
stopped spending money and
made a decision," Mayor Car-
men McGarry said. "At least
now we can go forward."
Consultants had given the
townthree principal options
to consider: building a reverse
osmosis (RO) plant, buying
water from either Deerfield
Beach or Pompano Beach, or
rebuilding the plant in stages.
"We have some funds to,
get started, "McGarry said. .
"I have asked the Finance
Committee to explore ways to
obtain more funding."
CH2M Hill engineer
Chris Peters said the cost of.
building a reverse osmosis
plant was the reason it was
eliminated as an option.
Compared to the town's
modest water usage, it would
not be cost effective," he said.
Peters said the plant
reconstruction will not qualify
for Water Management Dis-
trict grants and the town may
have to choose a combination
of bond funding and rate in-
creases to pay for the project.
But nothing will be done
until water officials renew the
town's Water Use Permit, the
consultant added. The re-
newal involves a projection of
the town's future water needs,
but with little area for growth,
the allocations are not likely
to change significantly.
About seven years ago,
commissioners were on the
brink of engaging a firm to
draw plans for a reverse os-
mosis plant to be built on the
grounds of town hall when
they abruptly changed their
minds.
Deerfield Beach is cur-
rently in the midst of a $17
million RO project which will
draw brackish water from the
Floridian Aquifer and treat it
for consumption.

Other Chamber events
this month included a net-

Pavilion, the three-story of-
fice building on A1A across
from the International Fishing

refurbished after Hurricane
Wilma and is being mar-
keted by Pheonix Real Estate
Group.
Available office units
range from 157 square feet to
1850 square feet, with pri-

the small spaces are rare in
commercial real estate and
"one has an ocean view." The
suites are equipped with fiber
optics, IP capabilities and, as
Yonce points out, the build-
ing is within walking distance
of some of Deerfield's finest
eating and drinking establish-
ments.

engine that can power every-
thing from weed whackers
to heavy equipment to 4,000

With the confidence
visionaries exhibit so well,
Schoell expects he'll see this
revolution in his lifetime.
The steam engine, of
course, isn't new. But when
the Stanley Steamer family
died in the early 1900s, its
use in automobiles dwindled,
eclipsed by the gasoline
engine.
Now through his company
Cyclone Power Technologies,
Schoell has developed a 100-

almost any fuel which, when
ignited, heats deionized water
which makes the steam which
moves the pistons.
The advantages offered
by this uncomplicated mo-
tor are huge: The Cyclone
Green Revolution Engine TM
requires no radiator, catalytic
converter, no oil pumps or oil
filters, no transmission, no
starter motor.
It is relatively inexpensive
to build, lightweight, quiet
but powerful. It operates on
powered coal which can be'
obtained for about eight cents
a gallon, alcohol, petrol fuels,
propane, natural gas - even
algae. And there are no toxic
emissions.
"We're going to be the
biggest company ever. The
time has come. This engine is
needed," Schoell said,

A third-generation inven-
tor, Schoell was born in Mi-
ami and moved to Pompano
Beach 10 years ago where he
operates just north of Co-
pans Road. As early as high
school, he won a Ford Foun-
dation Award for a sailboat
hull design and throughout his
career building hulls for high
powered racing boats was
the mainstay of his company,
Schoell Marine. It earned
him a reputation as a world
renowned marine designer.
The Cyclone engine has
been in research and devel-
opment about five years and
now Schoell and his team
including Michael Hodgson,
his chief engineer, and Wilson
McQueen, VP of Sales and
Marketing, show prototypes at
shows across the country.
He does not intend to
manufacture or distribute the
engine, but will license it to
entrepreneurs wanting to mar-
ket products using the engine.
The first license has been
awarded to a company that
will use the engine in lawn
mower motors. Along with the
promise of low maintenance,
the lawn motor engine will

By Frances Zannoni
PELICAN WRITER
Crystal Lake Middle School teacher,
Hector Varas, was recently awarded
the Hispanic Heritage Month Excel-
lence In Education Award on the
middle school level and was presented
with a $1,500 check from Governor
Charlie Christ.
Varas has taught for 23 years, 12 of
them at Crystal Lake Middle school.
Varas's nomination for this award
came as a surprise to him.
"That someone took the time to
research my education and life and
put all that time and effort to nominate
me, wow!" said Varas. "There is no
way to pay that back."
It was Dr. Renae Lapin, a family
counselor at Crystal Lake Community
Middle school who nominated Varas.
"Dr. Lapin knows the passion I have
for this profession," said Varas. "She
wasn't here when we found out that
I won the award, but when we got
together we hugged and cried."
His students think highly of him as
well. "He's the best teacher in the
world," said Christian Silva, 13.

Nick Damasceno cares enough
about the environment to spend a lot
of time, money and energy to find a
way to bring recycled water for ir-
rigation purposes to his five building
condominium association at 2501 NE
14 street in Pompano Beach.
And his two year volunteer effort,
which began in 2005, is paying off in
hard cash even as it saves millions of
gallons of drinking water. The lawns
are green despite droughts because
they can be watered as needed without
worrying about restrictions.
Here's his story.
"1 challenged myself to find an
economical and safe way to help our
environment and stop the waste of
watering our lawns with precious
drinking water," he says. "To educate
myself, I attended meetings at the
South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict Offices, or SFWMD, and asked
the city commission for suggestions."
Supervisor of Utilities, Bill Her-
man, came to inspect the property and
challenged Damasceno to achieve a
connection to the city's recycled water
system. Once accomplished, Dama-
sceno got approval to make the con-
nection from the city commission and
Randy Brown, director of utilities.
Prohibitive costs became his next
hurdle. Damasceno applied for a grant
from SFWMD which he received in
2007. The approximate cost of the
project was $14,000. The grant re-
ceived was for $3,678.
Next this determined environmen-
talist, with the use of a detailed graph,
presented his plan to the two condo
boards which govern 67 units in five
buildings. He projected an estimated
savings of five to seven thousand dol-

In operation since July of '07, the
cost of connecting to recycled water
was paid back in just one year, by
September of '08. The savings from
September until the.year end will be
$3,375. Those involved are thrilled. In
addition there will be a $1,000 annual
savings on fertilizer and no restrictions
on lawn watering with this new access
to recycled water.
Since this successful installation,


Damasceno has made a factual pre-

Snow and Santa reign at fire

fighters, Dependable holiday party


Snow men! Acting as if they were seriously snow deprived as kids, Deerfield Beach Firefighters
wage a battle of the snow balls.


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Dependable Component Supply,
a Deerfield Beach company located
in the Newport Center, threw a big
Christmas party for children battling
cancer this month. Several years ago,
under the leadership of Jerry Wilcox
and Shawn Ryan, the firm founded
Dependonus.org, a foundation that
works with Joe DiMaggio Children's
Hospital, Gilda's Kids and Broward
General Hospital to grant wishes to
youngsters undergoing cancer treat-
ment.
Wilcox, who plays Santa Claus,
spends his Christmas afternoons at
Joe D's visiting all the children in the
cancer center with his big bag of gifts.
This party was hosted by Deerfield
Beach firefighters who brought out the
big trucks, served pizza, threw snow-
balls and helped spread holiday cheer.
Fire Chief Tony Stravino said 10-15
of his off-duty firefighters came out to
assist the party givers.

2008 ends with a strong show of

compassion for homeless citizens
By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER
Yes, as we scrambled to get this issue to the presses on Christmas Eve, we
were continually stopping to answer the doors and receive an unprecedented
amount of clothes, food, blankets and wonderful stories from all of you.
We love our readers--that goes without saying. But dozens of you responded
to a small commentary, written a few weeks earlier regarding the plight of the
homeless people who try to make it through the days with so little hope.
We asked at that time for clean white socks to be donated to St. Laurence
Chapel for the Homeless, an outreach initiated by the Episcopal Diocese of
South Florida. Socks, still in their plastic bags showed up at our doors. The
stream of donations continued. Many people asked if the Chapel needed any-
thing else. They do, from socks to financial donations.
So we mentioned in the paper that clean blankets help families on the street
or living in their cars make it through Florida's cold spells.
While all of these gifts were meant for the homeless, the spirit of true char-
ity, the kind that goes on anonymously, filled each of us at The Pelican with the
spirit of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and that universal love that continues
to break through even the most difficult times.
Thank you everyone on behalf of us and of the many people who are better
off because of your kind hearts.

been bringing sound back into the
lives of hearing impaired adults and
children for over 30 years.
Their Lighthouse Point office in
suite 208. at 3170 N. Federal Hwy.
has been serving the community since
1976. Now there are four additional
locations in Pompano Beach. Fort
Lauderdale. Margate and the John
Knox Village Professional Building.
"What we can do for people has
changed over the years." says Cynthia
who is a doctor of audiology. "Instead
of just increasing the volume of sound.
we can fine tune our aids to accommo-
date each person's hearing needs."
Layne, a licensed hearing in-
strument specialist adds, "Too often
people concern themselves with the
cosmetic aspect of hearing aids instead
of the hearing adjustment we can pro-
vide that makes communication more
comfortable. After all, good hearing
is what connects us to the rest of the
world."


La\ ne goes on to remind the
public that there are many choices in
fine hearing instruments, but it's the
expertise of a professional who can fit.
program and adjust the aid that makes
the big difference. "We can now place
tiny speakers into the ear canal, and
they will improve hearing despite
surrounding restaurant, concert and
driving noises. Clarit\ and direction
of the sound source have improved
significantly in areas where there are
competing noises."
He continues. "If you find ,our-
self saying 'what' too often or asking
people to repeat a sentence, it's time to
have a thorough diagnostic evaluation.
This office is well qualified to do that
with two doctors of audiology and two
licensed instrument specialists."
Cynthia says, "A video inspection
of the canals will tell us if the prob-
lem is just wax accumulation, which
we can remove. If the exam reveals a
medical problem, we refer to a number
of fine ear, nose and throat physicians.
The exam will also tell us which type
of hearing device will be the most


effective choice for you. There are
usually several different solutions to
each type of hearing loss."
Many people with hearing loss
reject the use of hearing aids be-
cause they have heard the annoying
whistling coming from hearing aids

this neighborhood," MarJo
Lexa, a Bel Air resident since
1992, told the commission.
She and her husband have a
sport fishing boat in the front
yard and a large boat in the
backyard. Fines for the viola-
tions are $100 a day.
Lexa said she doesn't
think their boat is an eyesore
andhaving it in the yard
hasn't affected property val-
ues. She said the house next
to them recently sold for $1.2
million.


Lexa said that prior to
annexation, Bel Air residents
were told they would retain
rights and privileges if they
became part of Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea. "Now they're
enforcing a code that applied
to Old Town. The whole thing
is Byzantine."
Lexa's husband, Billy
Hart, said 24 boat owners
were cited. He told commis-
sioners they should change
their wrongful ordinance to
the benefit of their constitu-
ents.
According to town files,
18 residents received cour-
tesy letters Sept. 11 stating


Ir ~~ ;.Jt i *r~' ~i
I -�~ -'


they were in violation of the
town's ordinance and had 30
days to comply voluntarily.
Last week, 14 residents were
cited by the town and received
notices of violation. All were
in Bel Air or Terra Mar.
They were cited for being
in violation of the town code,
section 19-21, which prohibits
the parking/storing of a vessel
and trailer unless it is wholly
enclosed within a garage or
enclosed within a carport sur-
rounding the vessel on three
sides. The vessel and trailer
must not protrude from the
carport.
Prior to annexation to the
town, the areas had been part
of unincorporated Broward
County. Boats and trailers
were then allowed in yards.
A Terra Mar resident said
he has kept a camper trailer
on his property for years, but
now he's in violation. "Is this
some sort of arbitrariness?" he
asked.
"This is a boating com-
munity. We don't want to hide
our boats," said another Terra
Mar resident cited for a boat
on a trailer on his property
on West Terra Mar Drive. A
neighbor said he would have
to tear up pavers to hide his


boat. He asked commissioners
to look at what triggered all
these notices. -
"We were told we would
be grandfathered as far as
boats (at annexation)," a Bel
Air resident said. Now she
was told her trailer had to
be removed or stored in the
garage.
One woman said her boat
was permitted in her driveway
since 1999.
A Bel Air resident said the
ordinance was ambiguous and
asked who he was supposed to
complain to.
Joe Couriel, a resident on
Tradewinds Avenue in the old
part of town, said boats aren't
allowed there, and he'd like
to keep it that way throughout
the town.
Commissioner Birute
Clottey said the commission
should give other neighbors a
chance to be heard. She said
she's also heard from resi-
dents who don't want boats
parked in the area, but they
weren't at the commission
meeting.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIn-
tee said, "Anyone who had.
a boat the day they were an-
nexed should be able to keep
the boat. If they were told


www.tonersdonenow.com


they could keep their boats
(in the yard) that's not fair.
Same with trailers. But when
you sell the house, no more
boats."
Commissioner Stuart
Dodd said before the town
issues 24 citations, the matter
should be brought to the dais.
"We're a quaint, seaside vil-
lage. I have no problem with
boats on trailers if they don't
infringe on their neighbors or
fall into disrepair. If you had a
boat prior to annexation, you
should be able to keep it in
your garden," he said.
Dodd said he has a prob-
lem with one boat on a canal
in disrepair, and if tires are
flat, they (the owner) should
be cited. He said boats should
be covered and shown to be in
good working order.
Clottey said boats weren't
allowed years ago in Bel Air,
but the rules weren't enforced
for years. "If we want to allow
parking boats, let's change the
zoning."
John Olinzock, assistant
town manager, said the com-
mission adopted a unified
code several months ago, so
codes would be the same in
the north and south sections of
town. The code said no boat
trailers are allowed.
Prior to annexation, they
may or may not have been al-
lowed under Broward County
code, he said. "We enforce
the code. If (commissioners)
don't like the code, they have
to change it."
Commissioners unani-
mously agreed to table the
matter until their next meeting
on Jan. 13. A workshop on
code matters is scheduled at
5 p.m. prior to their regular
meeting.
At the commission meet-
ing Dec. 16, the town attorney
was asked if the commission
could hold off on citations and
fines until commissioners dis-
cuss this issue again. Attorney
Dan Abbott deferred to the
Town Manager Esther Colon.
"We have a code in
place, and we're enforcing
the code," an agitated Colon
said. "We have inspected all
properties based on this code.
This commission can't give
me an unlawful order. I'm not
breaking the law. If this com-
mission wants to break the
law and not enforce the law,
let me know."

worn by others. The newest
technology eliminates this
feedback. The higher end
aids even have the ability to
automatically adjust to sounds
in different environments,
controlling the background
noise without help from the
person wearing the aid.
Layne says, "People with
hearing loss must accept the
idea that we can help, but we
cannot return one's hearing to
that of a child's."
"But," Cynthia adds,
"technology is improving
every day. In fact, the entry
level aid today is better than
the best ones we hadjust three
years ago.
June Watters will attest to
that. She says, "I cannot say'
enough about how under-
standing and helpful Dr. Heise
has been with me. I've been
a patient for over 15 years
and have changed my hearing
aids several times. The newest
ones are the best yet.'?
Cynthis says, "Good qual-
ity digital hearing aids range
in price from $900 to $3,000.
There's an affordable one for
every budget."
She cautions readers to
not be seduced by internet
sales of hearing aids. "To
achieve successful hearing,
the fitting and adjustment is
critical, and this is not avail-
able with an on-line purchase.
Our service includes lifetime
service and maintenance at no
charge when the hearing aid is
purchased from us. Aids must
be cleaned and serviced every
four to six months. Anyone
interested in improved hear-
ing should be sure to have
a 30-day free trial to assure
satisfaction."
Help for balance, diz-
ziness and ear ringing
"To me, the successful
treatment for dizziness and
vertigo is the most reward-
ing thing I do," Cynthia says.
"Most patients are referred
to us by physicians, often
after years of unnecessary
suffering. They complain of
spinning sensations following
rapid changes of head and
body positions. The problems
can usually be eliminated
by physical or repositioning
therapy. "
Elise Stimpson will vouch
for that. After seeing her
regular doctor about her diz-
ziness, she was referred to an
ear, nose and throat special-
ist. "I was miserable for over
a month, but neither of these
doctors could find the reason.
The ENT doctor then sent me
to Dr. Heise who by simple
head maneuvering gave me
immediate and lasting relief.
I'm rejoicing at feeling nor-
mal once again."


Dr. Heise hopes there will
soon be help for tinnitus or
ear ringing, which is some-
times part of hearing loss. She
says, "We have equipment to
measure damage to the inner
ear hair cells to diagnose the
problem. Although there is
usually no cure, we are on the
cusp of Tinnitus Rehabilita-
tion Therapy which will help
the hearing impaired popula-
tion."
Detecting hearing
problems in children,
adults
Screening of newborns
is mandatory in Florida. If a
problem shows up, the baby is
referred for further testing to
a diagnostic center. Pediatri-
cians also do screening and
regularly refer to the Hear-
ing Center of Broward which
works closely with the school
system.


"The Broward School
System has the most com-
prehensive hearing impaired
program in the state," says
Heise. She adds, "Testing is
indicated if a small child has
delay in expressive language
skills or has frequent middle
ear problems which can upset
a child's progress."
About adults, she says,
"As we age we all experi-
ence hearing loss. We worry
about early onset of the
problem in our young people
because of environmental
noise and the popular use
of loud music. Years ago,
aids could only make sound
louder. Digital technology has
made it possible to improve
the understanding of speech
comfortably with cosmetic
acceptance."

meeting, Damasceno was
presented with the prestigious
American Water Works As-
sociation Award for Florida
by Pompano Beach Mayor
Lamar Fisher. Brown and
Loucraft, who had recom-
mended him for this honor,
were on hand to congratulate
him on his award and dedica-


tion to a project well done.
Speakiig for both, Lou-
craft said, "He is certianly
deserving of this award. Nick
has been an excellent pro-
ponent of the reuse system
and has taken the initiative to
conduct public education mo-
tivating others to follow his
lead. We've been very happy
to help him along the way, but
he has been the one who has
made it work."
Damasceno admits the


project took time, patience
and persistence over a two-
year period, but he says, "I
hope for the sake of all of our
futures that other condos will
do the same. It's worth the
effort because water is a pre-
cious -and limited resource."
About the man who
pioneered a successful
project
Damasceno says, "This
project was a good marriage
for me and my line of work.
As a strategy consultant, I've


worked on many exciting
government and private cor-
porate environmental projects.
He and his wife, Grazia,
who is his assistant and re-
searcher, were married in the
Vatican on July 4, 1997. He
says, "She's the girl next door
to my original Italian family
living in Telese, Italy."
Smiling, Grazia says with
pride, "Nick has received
another grant from SFWMD
to continue water conserva-
tion efforts in the plumbing
department."
He explains, "We are

Scents of the

Season
By Donna Torrey
PELICAN WRITER
For me, Holiday Spirit is
greatly influenced by my
nose! The aromas of baking
evoke strong memories.
Cinnamon spice abounds in
nearly all goodies. Favorites
such as gingerbread, eggnog
with nutmeg and many others
would be meaningless without
these unmistakable scents.
As a bonus, scientists are
now discovering that these
spices have great healing and
disease preventive properties.
What some do not realize is
that many traditional tastes
of holiday baking originate
with a tropical plant! Vanilla,
ginger, cocoa, cinnamon, and
allspice - all have their roots
in the tropics.
These special treats have a
long history of being highly
valued and sought after.
Imagine a holiday season
without them! But did you
know that what Northerners
can only dream about, we can
grow here?
Vanilla is, an orchid, (Vanilla
planifolia) a fact comes as a
big surprise to most people.
It is actually the seed pod
from which we derive vanilla
flavoring. Ginger (Zingiber
officinale), is the rhizome, or
root part of a specific species
of ginger; Cocoa comes from
the seed pod of a very tender
tropical tree, (Theobroma
cacao), and Cinnamon also
comes from the bark of a
tree. Lucky us; all of these
will grow with ease in South
Florida!
Allspice (Pimenta dioica),
and Bay Rum (Pimenta
racemosa) are special, because
they're actually native to the
Caribbean region. These
wonderful trees are relatively
small to around 20 feet, with
beautiful exfoliating bark.
They grow easily in full sun
to part shade with moderate
water.
Place a few leaves in some
water and simmer on the stove
for a festive air freshener, or
therapeutic tea.
Surround yourself with
scents of the season. They will
more than compensate for our
lack of snow.


Deerfield Beach Rotarians

bring on the holiday spirit

Deerfield Beach Rotar-
ians enjoyed the festivities of
the season at a recent holiday
party hosted by Beth and John
DiPrato in their Royal Palm
home. Highlight of the eve-
ning was the al fresco dining
around the DiPrato's pool and
the revival of a tradition "a
rousing rendition" of Twelve
Days of Christmas sung by
Rotarians and their guests.
Pictured are Beth DiPrato
and Dr. Joe Ortlieb.


Among the DiPrato's guests, Patty Huth, Jack and Val Hackett, club president.


Don Kolb, Marcia and Barry Degner.

Elsa Brehm Hoffmann, of Hillsboro Beach, was named
"Grand Dame" of the historic 46th Annual Pompano Beach
Holiday Boat Parade on Dec. 14. She shared the Grand
Marshall role with local South Florida news anchor WPLG
(ABC affiliate) Channel 10's Jacey Birch.
Elsa, 101, is a longtime and active area resident. She is
considered a "Pompano Pioneer" for her development and
ownership of The Jasmin Villa Resort in the 1950's for
about 20 winter seasons. Prior to that time, the area was
mainly agricultural. Motels brought tourism and successful
growth to the area.
Elsa's Own Blue Zone, written by Sharon Textor Black,
published by Morgan James will debut in 2009. It details
Elsa's philosophies on living and aging well. The book also
includes many photos of Elsa's life, including photos taken
with Barbara Walters from the show Elsa was on last April
"How to Live to 150 - Can You Do It?" Perhaps Elsa can!

There's fruit, and then there's
superfruit. What's the difference?
A superfruit has unique
phytochemicals not found in other
fruits - and that translates to
unique health benefits.
As more and more information
emerges about the power of
superfruits - from afai to goji
berries - an American favorite
that's been here all along is stepping
into the spotlight: California Dried
Plums.
Dried plums are packed with
vitamins, minerals, antioxidants
andfiber. And they're loaded with
surprises. Today's dried plums are
sweet, moist and tasty. Compared
with other fruits, they're surprisingly
affordable, conveniently portable
and always available.
California Dried Plums are the easy
way to enjoy superfruit nutrition
every day in cooking, baking,
salads or as a quick snack anytime.
Find delicious recipes at www.
californiadriedplums.org.

Dried plums. What's in 'em
for you?
-Improved digestion: A single
serving (four to five dried plums)
has three grams of fiber, to help you
maintain good digestive health.
-Tasty nutrition: Dried plums are a
nutrition powerhouse that includes
B vitamins, potassium, magnesium
and boron.
-Antioxidants: Dried plums have
phenolics that promote good health.
-Blood sugar control: Dried plums
can help maintain healthy blood
sugar levels.
--Cholesterol management: Fiber
and other compounds in dried
plums can help maintain healthy
cholesterol.

Florida state
song.
Continued from page 1
kindergarteners appearing
at one graduation ceremony
and the fourth and fifth-grad-
ers at the other. The choruses
were conducted by Gretchen
Fasulo.
The performances were
the first time Hinton and her
students have performed the
new anthem in public since
its adaptation and approval
by the Florida Legislature in
July.
The Pine Crest students
had sung the proposed anthem
for a DVD submitted to the
Legislature for the Just Sing!
Florida contest. Sen. Tony
Hill initiated the challenge to
seek a new state song after
both Jeb Bush and Charlie


U'i�


Crist eschewed Stephen Col-
lins Foster's "Old Folks at
Home," (known by many as
"Swanee River,") for their
inaugurations because of the
song's racial connotations.
Hill, a Jacksonville demo-
crat, sponsored legislation in
the Senate and Ed Homan, a
Tampa republican sponsored
HB825 in the House of Repre-
sentatives to adopt the win-
ning entry as the state's new
song.
Hill's contest drew 243.
submissions, which were
whittled down to three final-
ists: "My Florida Home,"
by Christopher Marshall,
"Florida, My Home," by


Betsy Dixon and Carl Ashley
and Hinton's song, rich with
sensory images, which extol:

"...the orange blossoms'
sweet perfume and fireworks
fill the air,
And cultures rich, our native
people share.
Florida, where the sawgrass
meets the sky,
Florida, where our hearts will
ever lie."

Hinton says the song "has
me waking up humming it
sometimes," but the DVD,
with the sweet, clear voices
of the Pine Crest kindergarten
students, helped seal the deal

the Sawgrass Meets the Sky.


with the competition.
It certainly did at the
Broward College commence-
ment, the first graduation
ceremony since the college's
name change from Broward
Community College became
official July 1. For the first
time, the Omni Auditorium
was decorated with 82 flags,
representing the nations from
which the graduates came,
and by the time the young-
sters sang the final notes
of the anthem, many of the
Broward faculty, graduates in
royal blue robes, and parents
and families of the graduates
dabbed at their eyes with tis-
sues.
Hinton, too, was moved by
the moment. "It was thrill-
ing, really thrilling, such an
honor," she said.
Hinton, a native of Bir-
mingham, England, who grew


up in Wales, will now forever
be linked with Foster, a native
of western Pennsylvania who
never traveled to the South.
In Foster's original draft
of "Old Folks at Home," he
referred to the "Pedee" River
(an incorrect spelling of South
Carolina's PeeDee River).
Subsequent drafts refer to the
"Swanee" probably because
the correct spelling - Su-
wanee - might cause some
singers to add the "u" sound,
an extra syllable.
Some political wrangling
is the reason Hinton and
Foster will forever be linked.
"Florida, My Florida," re-
mains the state song, replac-
ing "Swanee River' which
held that honor since 1913.
"Florida (Where the Saw-
grass Meets the Sky)" is now
the state anthem.

League baseball sign-ups, try-outs get rolling this January


By Cynthia Thuma
PELICAN WRITER
Pick a youth baseball
league, any league: Little
League, Pony League,
Khoury, Babe Ruth/Cal
Ripken, Dixie Youth Baseball,
i9, Baseball USA or even
Greater Lakes Baseball.
The variety of choices
available to young players
today is mind-boggling, and
programs changing affiliations
are not uncommon.


Little League, for example,
lost programs in Wilton
Manors, Fort Lauderdale
and Boca Raton because the
programs found the league's
residency requirements too
restrictive. However, Boca
Raton and Wellington are
starting new Little League
programs this spring.
Like many communities,
Pompano Beach has more
than one youth baseball
program to choose from:
a Little League program

operating out of North
Broward Park and Pompano
Beach Youth Baseball, Inc.,
a Pony League program
operating out of Kester Park
and the Four Fields Complex.
The league formerly operated
as a Khoury League program.
"The Khoury program got
weaker, so a few years back,
maybe seven, we made the
switch," said Ken Arnold, the
league's president.
"Pony Baseball doesn't
really have boundaries,
and the kids stay with their
divisions for two years, so
they're playing with and
against kids their own ages,"
Arnold said.
Another plus, he said, is
pony diamonds are scaled
down in size for the younger
players, with shorter base
paths, pitching mounds and
fences.


"It's not one field for every
age group," he said.
Other areas in Broward with
pony programs are Oakland
Park, Margate, Pembroke
Pines and West Pembroke
Pines. Miami-Dade County's
huge Tamiami program is a
pony affiliate as is West Boca
Raton Youth Basbeall.
Pompano Beach leagues
will offer play in four age
groups in 2009.
They are:
The Pinto Division, for
players ages 6 to 8, born in
2000 to 2003. The division's
tryout day is Jan. 10 at noon
at Kester Park. The cost to
register is $90.
The Mustang Division is
for players 9 and 10, born in
1998 to 2000. The division's
tryout date is Jan. 10 at Kester
Park. The cost to register is


$95.
The Bronco Division is for
players 11 and 12, born in
1996 to 1998. The division's
tryout date is Jan. 10 at 4 p.m.
at Kester Park. The cost to
register is $100.
Finally, the Pony Division is
for players 13 and 14, bor in
1994 to 1996. The division's
tryout date is Jan. 15 at 6 p.m.
at the Four Fields Complex.
The cost to register is $110.
Attending tryouts should
notbe an anxiety-filled
experience for players, Arnold
says. No players are cut, but
the activity serves a very
useful purpose.
"What's been great about
the tryouts is it helps us
spread the talent out," he
said. "There's no one team
with all the studs on it. The
tryouts help make is a very
competitive league."
In past years, Arnold said,
the difference between the top
team and the last one in each
division is only a few games.
Players who have yet to sign
up for the try-outs may do so
on the make-up registration

day, Jan. 7 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
at the Emma Lou Olson Civic
Center, 1801 NE 6 St. A late
registration date is Jan. 10 at
11 a.m. at Kester Park.
"If they're not signed up
by Jan. 7, they're put on a
waiting list," Arnold says.
Parents or guardians with
questions about the league are
urged to call 954-943-0635

Varas
Continued from page 5
Varas teaches Advanced
Spanish and World History
to Spanish speaking bilingual
6th, 7th and 8th graders. The
program is called Teenagers
Education in English and
Spanish, TEENS.
His other accomplishments.
include winning teacher of
the year in 1984 and 2000 and
being awarded by the U.S.
Department of Education for
Program Accomplishment
for the helping his students to
greatly improve their FCAT


scores.
Varas explains his secret to
teaching. "I'm very animated
in the classroom," he said.
"You have to think, what does
my audience want?"
While he's teaching he uses
real life outlooks as examples
and the kids love it when he
goes to his "el linea de la
vida", line of life, to explain
some important life lesson.
"He's very expressive, I've
learned a lot in his class, and
I feel proud of him that he
won this award," said Mateo
Escobar, 11. "He's like my
mentor."


Hector Varas with check in hand, is honored at the governor's office for his work with Deerfield Beach students.


Varas acknowledges that the
opportunity has opened many
doors. "I'm very honored
to represent the Spanish


teachers on the middle school
level, but it's tough for the
classroom teachers, and I
, want to do more to help
make people aware of the
challenges we face daily so
the parents and politicians
in Tallahassee give us the
support we need," Varas said.
"We are molding Americas
future." Varas also points out
that \winning the award has
had a snowball effect. "I've
gotten calls and letters from
a lot of influential people and
when the county found out I
won this award they dedicated
October 28th as Hector Varas
Appreciation Day," Varas
exclaimed excitedly.


However, he's quick to
point out what the best feeling
in the world is.
"When a student comes
back when they're 21 years
old, and they remember you
and tell you how you have
impacted their lives," he said.
"That's the best." It's easy
to see that he's impacting
the kids in his classes these
days. Just ask them how they
feel about their teacher and
they'll tell you, they love him.
,"You know the $1.500 check
and-ie-award, the doors and
recognition comes and goes."
'said Varas. :'But in the end
I'm just a simple teacher, I
love to teach."
