JANUARY, 2, 2009 POMPANO BEACH DEERFIELD BEACH LIGHTHOUSE POINT LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA Vol. XV, Issue 1


Lauderdale-By-

The-Sea--a look

at the year that

was!
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
The year got off to a contentious
start in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and
didn't improve much as the months
went on.
JANUARY
Mayor Oliver Parker announced he
was sending a letter to a local newspa-
per demanding a front page retraction
of an article noting that he has made
a "behind-the-scenes deal" with three
commission candidates to become
town attorney if they're elected.
Parker called the article in the Jan.
4 edition of By the Sea Times "a flat
out lie" aimed at destroying reputa-
tions. "They didn't call me about mak-
ing a deal," Parker said. "I don't want
to be town attorney, and I didn't agree
to any such deal."
Candidate forum
Candidates for office in LBTS
faced off in the first of two forums Jan.
14 in Jarvis Hall.
Two candidates were running for
mayor and four for two commission
seats in the Jan. 29 municipal election.
Candidates for mayor were L. Pea-
nuts Wick and Roseann Minnet.
Wick said his top priorities are the
safety of the town, "keeping the quaint
atmosphere and bringing respectability
back to town."
Minnet said her priorities were
"bringing unity to a splintered com-
munity; and maintaining a professional
fire, EMS and police department to
maintain a level of safety for all resi-
dents.
In District 1, Birute Clottey ran for
the commission seat held by Chuck
Clark.
Asked about their top three priori-
ties, Clottey said, "I want to be sure
there are no more backroom deals. We
should go back and look at annexation
agreements."
Clark said public safety was first

Pompano Beach Retro

SIt was a full year of celebrations as

1 Pompano Beach reached the age of 100


Pompano Pete, the Centennial Mascot
hosted dozens of parties to celebrate 100
years of Pompano Beach.


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
The Year that was 2008 may be
the one that called all of us to a new
sense of responsibility in budgeting
finances.
We were surprised to see the words
"foreclosure" begin to include cities
like Lighthouse Point and Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea, but there they were.
We checked that 4,741 homes were
already foreclosed, but the number of
homes in the process, we hear is even
greater.
Democrats and Republicans worked
fiercely to push their candidates to
the top position. But in the end it was
Barack Obama, whom the people
chose to lead the country out of one its


worse economic holes, out of war
and out of an educational system
that failed to make the grade. Mem-
bers of both parties are concerned
whether this young president-elect
can carry us to the other side of the
coin with these burdens.
When it came to crime, our kids
weren't very nice to one another.
Broward County Schools reported
31 violent incidents for every 1,000
students. Middle school rates were
even higher, 52 for every 1,000 stu-
dents; high schools reported 26 for
every 1,000 students, and primary
schools reported 25 for every 1,000
students.
Middle school students beat out

2008 was a year of progress and


politics in Deerfield Beach


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
If you want to be flip about it, you
might say 2008 in Deerfield Beach is
best described in three words: proj-
ects, prayer and politics. You might
also say prayer won, with projects a
close second and politics coming on
late in the game and continuing to
give the city a black eye.
Things started off well with the
approval of a transit oriented devel-
opment, or TOD, at the Seaboard
Railroad Station, a forward-thinking,
mixed-use project that provides for
housing, shopping, services, a hotel
and entertainment in one location
adjacent to mass transit.
Also coming to fruition after years
on the planning boards were improve-
ments to the AIA "S" curve and
major work on Hillsboro Boulevard,
east of US 1. Pioneer Park and many
neighborhood playgrounds were
spiffed up, a former land developer
wrestled the bureaucracy and finally
got permission to erect a windmill
and plant a butterfly garden at 1-95
and Hillsboro Boulevard, Tallman
Pines was completed providing up-
scale rental apartments for the work
force, an expansion to FAU was ap-


proved, and one project, a water park
proposed by Crystal Lake Golf Course
LLD, was derailed by citizen protest
and a legal conundrum.
Prayer won after a vigorous battle
was waged between those who wanted
to say "Jesus" in public and those who
found it offensive. Late in 2007, com-
missioners banned sectarian prayer
prior to commission meetings only
to face an uprising from the religious
community. In their attempts to put
definitions in place that would regu-
late clergy-led prayer, they generated
a response from the one person who
had been consistent in her disapproval
of prayer, now an "ordained" minister
who wanted her turn at the podium.
The issue took up many hours of
commission time as court rulings, law-
suits, and a straw ballot were present-


ed as options. In the end, the commis-
sion adopted guidelines for prayer, but
currently those giving the invocation
speak in terms of their own beliefs and
there are no challengers.
Politics emerged at year's end when
District 4 Commissioner Steve Gonot
resigned just prior to his arrest on
charges that he misused campaign
funds, and Mayor Al Capellini was ar-
rested for allegedly using his position
for personal gain and then suspended
by the governor.
The removal of these officials cre-
ated vacancies on the city commis-
sion, one in District 4 and the other
in District 2 when Vice Mayor Sylvia
Poitier was elevated to the position of
mayor that will be addressed at a Jan.
13 meeting of the city commission.

primary and high school
students when it came to
bullying;43 percent of these
students were victims of bul-
lying.
Saddest of all was the
murder of the 15-year-old bal-
lerina, Amanda Collette, who
was enrolled in the perform-
ing arts program at Dillard
High School.
Another student, also 15, is
charged with the crime.
January The big event
in Pompano Beach was the
celebration of the city's 100th
birthday on July 3, and pre-
party events were celebrated
all over town. One of the
first jobs of the year was to
name the city's mascot, a fish
that ended up being named
"PompanoPete," who reigned
at most Centennial events.
Pompano Beach resident Jerry
Bowman chaired the Centen-
nial committee along with a
host of volunteers who gave
Pompano Beach a birthday to
remember.
Pompano Beach, commis-
sioners began 2008 by asking
the city attorney to come up


with an ethics code
after a full year of
demands for such a
code from the pub-
lic. Here it is January
2009, and commission-
ers still have not agreed
on a revised code that
may meet their demands.
Last year Vice Mayor
E. Pat Larkins called the
code "ridiculous non-
sense" and Commissioner
George Brummer wanted an
amendment causing anyone
who made a complaint that
was found to be false to pay
for the city's expenses. The
amendment passed, but the
code failed.
February The city hired
Robert Franke as CRA direc-
tor to oversee the East and
West Community Redevelop-
ment Agencies, hoping for a
jump start on the east side, but
Franke resigned after several
months.
And there was even more
drama, but this time legiti-
mate.
Over 170 young pianists
from the tri-county area, com-
peted at the Pompano Beach
Amphitheatre for the Children
in the Arts Piano competition.

Martin's Episcopal Church.
Guinevere sang a song
about "The Wicked Month
of May," and the onset of
foreclosures fulfilled that
prophecy with homeowners
caught in the Adjustable Rate
Mortgage, or ARM, rates.
Abandoned homes began to
create unwholesome neigh-
borhoods with algae-filled
pools, collapsing boat docks
and vermin-ridden buildings.
With no one ready to pay the
bills for cleaning up the mess,
city employees finally stepped
in to get things up to a health-
ier standard.
June This is the month
when we cross our fingers,
pray, dance under the moon
and do anything else to
ward off hurricanes from
our fragile shores. But that
did not stop us from being
ready. Hurricane preparations
begin as Emergency Manager
Kimberly Spills urged resi-
dents to start preparations. We
sailed through another season
unscathed, thankfully.
A proposed gas pipeline
at Port Everglades, Calypso,
caused residents to urge of-
ficials to stop its development.
The deepwater port would
allow ships to deposit natural
gas that would then be deliv-
ered through an underwater
pipeline to Port Everglades.
While public furor convinced
many cities to pass resolutions
against the development, the
final authority for approval
still rests with the Florida
governor.
By June, Centennial was the
word on everybody's lips. Just

pened in Pompano Beach be-

came a Centennial event. Not
too many people get to cel-
ebrate a city's 100th year. Fu-
ture generations will just have
to read about all of the events
and especially the great event
hosted by Mayor Lamar
Fisher and wife, Suzanne, the
Centennial Mayor's Gala. The
gala was sponsored by the
city and local business owners
and included a film produced
by Pompano Beach Middle
School broadcast students that
tracked the history of-the city
from its incorporation on July
3, 1908 to the present.
July Well the old gal,
Pompano Beach, made it to
her birthday party primped
up and ready to party. The
party, staged at the city's
Amphitheatre with dancing,
fireworks and 100 birthday
cakes brought a few thousand
people out. The cakes were
made and donated by local
Publix Supermarkets. Com-
missioners began a battle over
gravel driveways that left
them with no clear solutions
at the end of the year. Centen-
nial Park was approved by the
commission on the grounds of
the historic Sample-McDou-
gald House on Northeast 10
Avenue. The Pompano Beach
Chamber of Commerce got
a boost when Ric Green ac-
cepted the position of execu-
tive director, and he hit the
ground running--as usual.

Thanks to so many people for

making 2008 a winning year
By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER
I had a chance to chat with one of my old New Orleans buddies this week.
We recalled our friendship which went all the way back to high school. We grew
up in an urban community, paying seven cents to catch the St. Charles trolley
to the Claiborne Express bus to get to school. If we had been early enough, we
would walk down Nashville Avenue to Alcee Fortier High School, the three
story brick building that found itself at the bottom of the famous 'Soup Bowl'
during Hurricane Katrina.
This chat went on and on as New Orleans conversations tend to do. It's
important to know what happened to so & so's daughter, who married so & so,
who was the second cousin of so & so, whose niece had reigned at some Carni-
val Ball.
I love talking like that. I feel transported to a land of myth and magic where
we are all tangled up with each other in some way, shape, marriage or form.
I said I missed it all--running to Cafe au Lait for beignets and creamy coffee
served with boiled milk, sitting on the front porch of our "shot gun" style house
watching people walk by or stealing away to the Quarter for a bowl of turtle
soup.
She suggested I come home. I imagined myself for an instant. Now I would
really appreciate the beauty of the city, the Mississippi River, the art, music and
food--all things I had taken for granted in my youth.
I did not tell my pal that I was home. I am home because of the people, the
readers, the tales and the events that have been woven into my heart.
Thank you all for the stories you have related to me and our writers here at
The Pelican. For it's the stories that help us know each other better than we ever
could otherwise.
I What an amazing thing the heart is. As we move on in life, the heart contin-
ues to expand and add more people to love without in the least bit diminishing
the loves of the past.
I am nostalgic at this moment because my old chum is on my mind. It's
New Year's Eve. We are getting this' 16-year-old bird out to press early.
Happy New Year and Laissez le bon temps roulez. And Merci beaucoup!

A short history of women in racing
By Debbie Schaut
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
40 years ago, the number of women involved in either the business or the
backstretch of harness racing was minuscule.
The racetrack was not a "woman's place" nor was it receptive to women
who wished to compete above the amateur level.
That has changed over the past 40 years. At the Isle Pompano Park, women
have increased their numbers in the supporting roles associated with harness
racing, such as judges, caretakers, trainers, drivers, owners and horse breeders.
Over the years many harness drivers have mocked at the idea of women
attempting to drive racehorses, claiming they simply do not possess the upper-
body strength needed to control a 1,000-pound horse in close quarters at high
speeds.
Neva 'Grandma' Burright was a regular fixture on the Midwest racing cir-
cuit, driving her first race in 1917. Known as the 'Queen of the Sulkies,' Neva's
greatest success came in the 1940s and early 1950s when she successfully
campaigned a public stable at the Chicago pari-mutuel tracks. When she retired
from driving in 1954 she remained active as a timer and official at tracks in the
Chicago area.
Canadian born Mildred Williams from Prince Edward Island drove her first
race in 1952. Mildred won the event, a Powder Puff Derby for female driv-
ers. Mrs. Williams got her Canadian harness driving license a short time after
her auspicious debut. She may have not been the first woman to hold such a
license, but she most certainly was one of the first to pave the way for the many
to follow through the years.
Now in its fourth year, the .Mildred Williams International Womens Driving
Series is designed to promote the sport of harness racing, and provide young
women with the opportunity to participate and raise money for women related
charities as well as honor a female pioneer (Mildred Williams) in the sport. ,
Frances Dodge Van Lennep, the daughter of a Detroit automobile magnate,
fell under the equine spell at an early age. She founded the famous Dodge
Stable, originally of Rochester, Michigan. In 1941, she purchased a standard-
bred stallion and just six years later, stood proudly in the Hambletonian winners'
circle beside her colt, Hoot Mon.
In 1945, Frances purchased the historic Castleton Farm in Lexington,
Kentucky. Sparing no expense in refurbishing the farm, The Castleton Rac-
ing Stable was soon making headlines. The races won, the records set, and the
world champions. She even rode the great standardbred, Greyhound, under
saddle to a world record in 1940.
In 1949, Frances Dodge married Frederick Van Lennep, introducing him
to harness racing. But it was in 1964 the Van Lennep's opened Pompano Park
Harness Track and soon the track became the 'Winter Capital of Harness Rac-
ing.' Mrs. Van Lennep continued to support harness racing and was considered
one of the foremost women pioneers in the sport until her death in 1971 at age
56.
Bea Farber, drove her first standardbred in 1970. In just three years, she
won a driving title at Northville Downs in Michigan. She was the first woman
to break the 1,000 career-victory milestone. Along with those wins, came over
$9 million in purse money.
She was the first woman driver to compete in the World Driving Champion-
ship. Bea Farber retired in 1995 with more than 1800 winners.
It was women like Grandma Burright, Mildred Williams, Frances Dodge
Van Lennep and Bea Farber who have made a profound impact on the sport of
harness racing and paved the way for many women today. They have set the
tone for women and girls who make harness racing their careers.
Steve Wolf, the Isle Pompano's Senior Director of Racing has four women
on his staff that plays major roles at Pompano Park. Debbie Schaut, Racing
Operations Manager, Carol Malcolm, Simulcast Manager/Paddock Judge, Irene
Cole, Stall Superintendent and Lynne Easley, Mutuel Manager. Before joining
the ranks with Steve Wolf, both Schaut and Malcolm had strong backgrounds in
the sport of harness racing.
Kelly Case, 46 of Pompano Beach, a mother of two, trains a stable of 10
horses and occasionally shares driving duties with husband, David at Pompano
Park. As a driver Kelly has 763 lifetime career wins and a lifetime earnings of
$956,647. As a trainer she has won 327 races and a bankroll over $1,680,000.
In 20.02 Kelly received the Frances Dodge Van Lennep Award. This past
June she won the $18,000 Mildred Williams Driving Series Trot at the Mead-
owlands. Kelly was born and raised in Lewiston, Maine. She grew up in a
male dominated family of three brothers, and they all followed in their father's
footsteps of harness racing. In 1983 Kelly opened her own public stable. Three
years later that she would marry David Ingraham and combine their stables.
If you ask Kelly if she thinks harness racing is still male dominated, she
answers, "Yes. David does most of the driving in our own stable today. But I do
feel that if it hadn't been for women like Mildred Williams or Bea Farber we
wouldn't be as far as we are in the sport."
There are currently seven women who are leading trainers at the local track.
Kim Sears, Michile Lorenzo, Julie Bishop, Linda Wallis, Linda Kakaley, Mi-
chelle Hallett and Peggy Faurot.
This is the 45th Anniversary season at the Pompano Park Harness Track.
Many changes have taken place over the past 45 years since opening in Febru-
ary, 1964. One thing is for certain, that women have made their place in the
sport of harness racing in South Florida.

Some of the advantages
are:

credit scores to be in the 500's
On purchase transac-

down payment of 3%
100% of a down pay-
ment and closing cost can

Friday. January 2. 2009 The Pelican 9


Deerfield

Beach
Continued from page 1

It also impacts the upcom-
ing March 2009 election
which until the December turn
of events had seemed set with
Gonot running against Capel-
lini and two candidates seek-
ing Gonot's District 4 seat.
Now the mayoral race appears
to be wide open. Former
mayor Jean Robb is an an-
nounced candidate. Capellini
says he will stay in the race
and Gonot's intentions are not
known. Considering the cir-
cumstances, other candidates
are expected to file before the
Jan. 9 closing date.
For a closer look at the
events of 2008 read on.
JANUARY
Commissioners withhold fi-
nal approval of Deerfield Sta-
tion, the TOD, sought by York
Residential saying they want
the report from consultants
on water facilities and fees.
Project attorneys say the delay
will cause their plat filed with
the county to expire.
"This is a huge, huge proj-
ect. If they have to reapply,
then they have to reapply."-
Commissioner Pam Militello
The project was approved
without comment in February.
FEBRUARY
After more than two years
of protest by activist Caryl
Berner that led to a .ban on
secular prayer before commis-
sion meetings, the other side
comes out in force and fills
the commission chamber say-
ing they should be allowed to
pray in the language of their
faiths.
"We are not going away.
We don't understand why
the voice of a handful of
people is.heard. Where will
this stop. Will there be a ban
on churches?" Pastor Joe
Gaudagnino.
"This is not a house of
worship. It is a house of gov-
ernment." Commissioner
Pam Militello.
City Attorney Andy Mau-
rodis advises that the U.S.
Supreme Court has upheld the


I


legality of clergy-led prayer,
but in a footnote removed
reference to Jesus Christ.
Also in February, Dist. 3
Commissioner Marty Popel-
sky remits the $1,076 he re-
ceived from the city following
a fender bender in the city hall
parking lot. The matter came
to light after a citizen re-
quested the public record that
showed the commissioner had
been compensated for repairs
to his car. When the incident
was revealed both the city at-
torney and city manager urged
him to return the money, but
Popelsky resisted. He capitu-
lated after Mahaney said the
risk manager had acted based
upon false information given
her by Popelsky.
MARCH
Highway projects move
along. Phase II of the A1A
"S" curve contract is awarded.
The work will widen side-
walks, improve drainage, add
crossing lanes and landscap-
ing. Bids are due for the Hill-
sboro Boulevard streetscape
improvements which will
beautify the corridor from
U.S. 1 to NE 20 Avenue. Ma-
jor improvements to Pioneer
Park begin with $500,000 to
be spent for a new ball field,
new playground, landscaping
and removal of the old annex
building.
The Police Athletic League
Gymnasium becomes a real-
ity thanks to the dedication
of BSO Sgt. Bill Murray
and Dep. Butch Santy. The
gym, located at the US 1
Fire Station, offers boxing,
wrestling and weight train-


ing for youngsters ages 8- 18.
Santy names the boxing squad
"Trackdown" in memory of
his mentor on the police force,
the late Capt. Lee Magnuson,
known for his speed in run-
ning down suspects.
"The old timers remember
Trackdown. He could run
down almost any tough guy,
but he had a heart of gold."
- Dep. Butch Santy
More than 600 Crystal Lake
residents prepared to protest
development of a water park
leave a commission meeting
after the decision is made that
the attorney for the project did
not have latest information on
quasi judicial procedures. The
attorney asked for a continu-
ance of the hearing which will
decide if the 97 acres that
was once Tam O'Shanter
Golf Course can become a
water park. Crystal Lake Golf
Course LLD is asking to dig
two, 25-foot lakes, excavate
the fill over five years and
then turn the property into
recreational use. Residents
worry about noise, dust and
traffic during the excavation
period.
APRIL
Brad Chalker, member of
the Code Enforcement Board,
is removed after explicit, por-
nographic conversations were
found on his office computer.
Chalker, 42, was a com-
munity service aide in Co-
conut Creek. and had been
Commissioner Steve Gonot's
campaign manager in 2005.
He resigned after an internal
investigation uncovered 42

Former fire chief Gary
Lother is an early contender
for the District 4 commission
seat being vacated by Gonot
who is running for mayor.
Lother opens his bank account
saying his work with the Deer
Creek Improvement Associa-
tion has awakened his interest
in public service.
Side stepping a potential
lawsuit, city commissioners
agree to seek Florida Forever
grant funds in the amount
of $6.6 million to buy Tam
O'Shanter Golf Course and
the owners'attorneys agree to
a six-month delay. Residents
were again massed in protest
of Crystal Lakes Golf Course
LLD's desire to excavate the
land and build a water park
and commissioners were
reluctant to reject the proposal
because it met zoning regula-
tions.

Ann Krimsky
MAY
Commissioners ask the city
attorney to define the words
"clergy" and "houses of
worship" as used in a policy
meant to regulate clergy-led
prayer. Activist Caryl Berner
attends the meeting as Lay
Sister Zelda, wearing her
spiritual vestment- a cotton
spaghetti strap dress.
"We are wasting our time.

city obtaining grant funds.
Linda Bauman dies after
a valiant effort by her hus-
band, Les, a Deerfield Beach
firefighter, to raise money for
her admittance to a special fa-
cility that treats brain injuries.
Bauman was injured in a jet
ski accident and had been in
a coma for months. Despite
a show of public support for
Bauman, city officials said


Bauman's health insurance
did not cover acute rehab and
refused his request for aid.
Bauman raised enough money
through private donations to
get his wife into the center,
but she did not respond to
treatment.
Vice Mayor Sylvia Poitier,
agitated with audience com-
ments from the floor gavels
down a speaker and loses her
temper, causing Mayor Al
Capellini when he returns to
the dais to call the commis-
sion the "craziest" he has ever
served with.
"You're in for a good one
now; you bother with me."

JUNE
Mango Fest organizers are
forced to borrow $50,000
against next year's budget
to put on the June 14 event
and pay off an $8,000 debt
incurred last year. That
amount was in addition to the
$115,000 budgeted for the
festival. Festival Chair An-
drew Pratt said it cost $30,000
to provide fire and police
services for the one-day
event and another $60,000
for entertainment. Pratt said
his committee got a late start
in seeking sponsors and had
not obtained even one. In the
past, the three-day event was
costing upwards of $400,000
and had become one 6f the
biggest Black music festivals
in the area.
"I can see now the city was
spending a lot of money."
.- Andrew Pratt
Commissioners clear the
way for a Holiday Inn Express
to be built across from the
FAU Research Park on SW
11 Way on acreage originally
platted for apartments. The
five-story hotel will contain
88 guest rooms.
Changes in the economy
made the apartment complex
non feasible, Commissioner
Sylvia Poiter said. Also ap-
proved this month, an ad-
ditional 158,254 square foot
research/office building on 9.7
acres of the Research Park.
A parking garage has already
been okayed.

Candidates for the com-

During an organizational
meeting Feb. 19, commis-
sioners elected Commissioner
Jerry McIntee vice mayor.
They decided against
electing a mayor pro tem.
If both the mayor and vice
mayor are absent, the three
remaining commissioners will
decide who runs the meeting.
The town received two
responses for proposals, for
emergency medical services.
Town Manager Esther
Colon reported Feb. 19 she
has received proposals from
the Broward Sheriff's Office,
the current provider, and from
American Medical Response,
or AMR.
The city of Fort Lau-
derdale was not interested,
and Pompano Beach did not
respond, she said.
The AMR annual bid was
for $670,000 and BSO $1.9
million, Colon said.
She said the response time
was the same for both: six
minutes.
MARCH
Concerns about Palm
Club sewers and public safety
dominated discussion at the
annual meeting of the North
Beach Civic Association
March 10.
Mark Brown, the group's
president, invited residents


to share ideas and concerns,
as the association develops
its agenda for the year. The
group tries to be a liaison to
the town commission.
Several residents ad-
dressed the Palm Club issue,
asking that the town keep its
promise to pay for sewers in
the community.
"If you (commission-
ers) go forward with sewers
in Palm Club, you will have
finished what you promised
in capital improvements in
the annexation agreement,"
said Palm Club resident Joe
Donahue.
AMR was named new
provider of emergency medi-
cal services in Lauderdale-By-
the-Sea starting in October.
As expected, commission-
ers chose the firm over the
Broward Sheriff's Office at
their March 25 meeting. The
vote was 4 to 1 with Mayor
Roseann Minnet dissenting.
AMR's bid was for
$670,000, compared to BSO's
$3.8 million.
The change in the figures
was because BSO included
EMS services along with fire
protection in its bid.



Singles Dine

Meet & Mingle

"The figures don't add
up. BSO has priced itself
out of a contract," Commis-
sioner Stuart Dodd said after
seconding Commissioner Jim
Silverstone's motion to award
the contract to AMR.
AMR's bid calls for one
vehicle to be stationed in town
staffed with two paramedics,
including a battalion chief,
and an emergency medical
technician. A second, backup
unit at Holy Cross Hospital,
would have one paramedic
and one EMT. Paramedics
provide advanced life support
and EMTs .basic life support.
APRIL
A 67-year-old Canadian
tourist nearly drowned while
trying to come to the aid of a
boy caught in rip currents in
the ocean off Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea April 1.


Broward Sheriff Fire
Rescue and BSO deputies
were called to the 4500 block
of North Ocean Drive at 3:37
p.m. Jean-Marc Bourgeois,
the tourist, was in cardiac
arrest, and two bystanders
provided cardiopulmonary
resuscitation. BSO Deputy
Edward Eason continued CPR
until Fire Rescue paramedics
arrived and began aggressive
resuscitative efforts, including
using the AutoPulse, a device
used to continue circulation
when the heart stops. The vic-
tim survived the incident.
Commissioners ap-
proved the hiring of a new
town attorney selecting their
only candidate for the posi-
tion from the Weiss, Serota
Helfman Pastoriza Cole &
Boniske. Commissioners Bi-
rute Clottey and Stuart Dodd
voted no because they felt the

position should be re-adver-
tised so they would have more
choices.
Because of the number of
recent near drownings at the
beach, commissioners agreed
to to spend up to $20,000 for
purchase of two ATVs (all
terrain vehicles) for use in
patrolling the beach.
MAY
News that a massive
deepwater energy port could
be located seven miles off the
coast of Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea and the Galt Ocean Mile
had area residents busy gath-
ering petitions and contacting
politicians in an attempt to
stop the project.
Petitions were sent to
Gov. Charlie Crist, who can
approve or disapprove the
project after a public hearing.

On May 27, Mayor
Roseann Minnet presented a
resolution in opposition to the
project at the town commis-
sion meeting in LBTS.
Commissioners approved
a resolution to eliminate Palm
Club Drive from the town's
sewer improvement project at
a May 27 meeting. The vote
was 4 to 1, Minnet dissenting.
Hank Overton, president
of the Palm Club Board of
Directors, said before the vote
that what they were consider-
ing doing was "discrimina-
tory, unfair and illegal."
Commissioners heard a
proposal from the only fire de-
partment to apply to provide
fire suppression services in
town at their May 27 meeting.
To no one's surprise, it was
the Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment.
The current provider,
Broward Sheriff's Fire Rescue
Department, decided not to
bid. Their current contract,

The VFD's total proposed
annual budget was $844,022
with an increase of four per-
cent each year, said Chief Bob
Perkins, who made the pre-
sentation, along with Patrick
Pointu, VFD administrator.
Commissioners agreed
to spend $1.776 million to
purchase a motel just north of
Town Hall for a new public
safety complex.
They made the decision
with little discussion as they


extended their meeting past
11 p.m. May 26. The vote was
4 to 1, Minnet dissenting.
Town Manager Esther Co-
lon said the town had obtained
two appraisals on the prop-
erty, the Villa Orleans Motel,
4513 N. Ocean Drive. One
was for $1.740 million and
the other for $1.813 million.

The current and former

and the former chair of the

were all subjects of com-
plaints filed with the State of

The vice mayor's idea to
help the town's struggling
businesses was to move the
Chamber of Commerce to
a storefront on Commercial
Boulevard. It didn't go over
well with chamber officials.
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee

He suggested moving the
offices of the Chamber of
Commerce from the southern
edge of town on A1A to Com-

8 approved on first reading
an ordinance to allow a trial

The area, near Minto's

ment, would be open to dogs

Lou's Giant Subs
1721 N. Dixie Hwy
Pompano Beach, FL
Tel: 954-946-9600

By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER
Located across the street
from the home of the Good
Year Blimp, Lou's Giant
Subs has perfected the art of
sandwich making over several
generations. Family owned
and operated, this Pompano
Beach landmark has been
providing world famous subs
for thousands of
customers since
1971.
"We use
nothing but the
freshest ingredi-
ents" says owner
Lou Sottini, and
the clients seem
to agree. With
a reputation for quality fare
at a reasonable price, this
restaurant has a following that
defies belief.
I arrived around lunchtime
on a typical weekday. As I
sat down at one of the tables,
I noticed the cargo train on
the Dixie tracks come to a
halt right across the road. To
my amazement, the conduc-
tor jumped out and dodged
traffic to find welcome refuge
at Lou's.
A 6" roast beef sub later,
the engineer refilled his drink
at the self-serve counter, gave
a courteous wave and sprinted
out the door back to his wait-
ing train. It was remarkable
to think that this gentleman
probably saw hundreds of
restaurants along his route but

the service from the long-time

AUGUST
The Village of Sea Ranch
Lakes selected the Pompano
Beach Fire-Rescue Depart-
ment to provide fire protection
and emergency medical ser-
vice in the gated community.
The Volunteer Fire De-
partment in LBTS came in
second in the bidding process.
SEPTEMBER
After hearing from sev-
eral supporters of the LBTS
Chamber of Commerce, com-
missioners in LBTS nixed any
plans to move the chamber
and its Visitor's Center.


McIntee said he had met
with Chamber representatives
since initially proposing the
idea of the move. "I'm not
going after moving them. I'm
not going after their building,"
he said. "The chamber is a
benefit to the community. You
do have my support," he said.
Commissioners unani-
mously agreed to set the mill-
age rate at 3.9990 for the new
fiscal year at a budget meeting
Sept. 25. That's down from
the current tax rate of 4.1012.
Commissioners unani-
mously approved a budget
of $17.7 million, down $12
million from this year's $29.3
million.
OCTOBER
Mayor Roseann Minnet
urged the town commission to
consider forming an oversight
committee for public safety.


She said the town needs
stronger checks and balances
when it comes to public safety
issues.
"This is for the safety of
the residents," she said. "The
volunteers will do their best to
serve the needs of this town,"
Minnet suggested the commit-
tee, overseeing police, fire and
EMS, could review training
records and monitor calls.
NOVEMBER
The traditional "Christmas
by the Sea" celebration in
LBTS was scaled back this
year to a very abbreviated
tree-lighting ceremony.
That's the word from Paul
Novak, president of the LBTS
Chamber of Commerce, spon-
sor of the event.
The move was made be-
cause of "lack of funding and
a lot of restrictions thrown in
our path," Novak said. '"There


didn't seem to be a lot of
cooperation between the town
and us. They didn't care if we
put it on or not."
Commissioners put the
brakes on a developer's plans
to build a condo hotel on El
Mar Drive.
By a vote of 3 to 2, com-
missioners on Nov. 25 denied
a request by Michael Arker,
developer of the Coral Key
Ocean Club, to rule the site
plan as vested and reverse
the interpretation of a former
town official who had said
earlier approvals are null and
void.
Mayor Roseann Minnet
and Commissioner Stuart
Dodd voted no.
The vote was to decide if
the town's administrative staff
erred when it ruled the appli-
cant hadn't secured a building
permit in time.


DECEMBER
"Lifeguards are a pipe
dream in our town," Vice
Mayor Jerry McIntee said, as
commissioners held a work-
shop session Dec. 16.
With two miles of beach
and 5,800 residents, "Our
little town can't support life-
guard service comparable to
Pompano Beach or Deerfield
Beach," McIntee said.
Three people drowned in
the ocean off LBTS this year,
one at the north end of town
and two at the south end.
Commissioner Birute Clot-
tey, who called for the work-
shop on lifeguards, said she
would like to see lifeguards
in the downtown, central part
of town in the places where
riptides are prevalent.
"The people need to de-
cide," Clottey added. "They
will have to pay for it."

Lou's Subs
Continued front page 13
poorly represented at regular
sandwich shops. In addition,
their newly introduced wraps
provide a healthy alternative
that will satisfy even the most
discriminating calorie con-
scious diner.
Wanting a simple taste
sensation, I requested a run-
of-the-mill ham and cheese
sub with the full complement
of toppings. To my delight, I
received a little masterpiece
of Virginia ham, Provo-
lone cheese, lettuce, tomato,
onions, oil, vinegar, oregano,
sweet peppers, mayonnaise
and hot mustard.
Wedged between two slic-
es of baked-fresh sub bread,
my order provided an explo-
sion of flavor that reminded
me why sandwich making
was an under-appreciated art
form. And with the owner's
sons TJ and Lou Jr. preparing
subs for all the customers, I
knew that family pride would


keep this thriving business
alive and well for many years
to come.
"We make everything
fresh and also have a great
time with our customers"
says TJ, the next genera-
tion in charge of feeding the
hungry folks of Pompano and
beyond. With party subs and
platters for the office crowd,
Lou's Giant Subs provides the
perfect way to fulfill the needs
of any number of appetites
With hundreds of fish-
ing pictures adorning the
walls, dozens of drinks on tap
including beer and countless
sandwich options starting at
under $5, Lou's Giant Subs is
one stop that allows visitors to
enjoy the true spirit of Pom-
pano Beach without spending
a fortune.
Open every day of the week
from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (10-5 on
Sundays, this giant little sub
shop will not only entertain
you with its memorabilia, but
will fill your belly with the
tastiest subs in town as well!

24 years ago as director of
tourism and special events.
Construction on Hillsboro
Boulevard begins, but not
until merchants fearful of
losing business have their say
about the $7 million project.
Some ask that it be delayed
until the business climate
improves. The streetscape
enhancements, first conceived
in 2000, had encountered
numerous delays.
"In this downturn people are
hanging on by a shoestring.
Is there any help for these
people?" Dr. Joe Ortlieb
"This train has left the


station a long time ago. It
is way too late to talk about
"let's not do this project." -
City Manager Mike Mahaney.
After a two month delay
caused by FP&L's failure
to bring in electricity,
Tallman Pines opens 200
rental apartments for low to
moderate income families.
The complex, at 700 NE
42 St., replaced a slum area
managed by the Broward
Housing Authority and was
a joint venture of public and
private agencies. Another
workforce project, The Palms,
at 425 NW 1 Terrace, was
completed and at Highland
Gardens, 65 units were ready
for low income residents age
55 and older.
AUGUST
Deerfield's budget comes
in offering a tad of tax relief
while holding the line on
expenses, maintaining a hiring
freeze and allowing for only
one major capital expenditure,
upgrades to the water plants.
The $139 million fiscal plan
lowered millage from 5.35 to
5.3 mils despite an actual $3
million decrease in revenues
brought on by the sagging
real estate market, Homestead
portability and new real estate
tax exemptions.
An increase in foreclosures
contributed to the lower
revenues.

less," City Manager Mike
Mahaney
At the urging of Deer Isles
Homeowners Association
President Bill Ganz, the
commission agrees to take
action on foreclosed homes.
Ganz complained that the
vacant houses pose a hazard
and reduce neighborhood
values. Estimates are there are
400 homes in Deerfield Beach
in default or foreclosure.
SEPTEMBER
State rejects two grants for
recreational land, one for the
strip next to the fishing pier
owned by businessman Pete
Boinis, the other the funds
to buy Tam O'Shanter Golf
Course. City officials had
sought $6.6 million from the
Florida Forever Fund for the
golf course. Also rejected was
a request for $310,000 to buy
the Boinis property, money
that they had hoped to add to
a pledge of $310,000 from the


county. //
Major chain operations
show an interest in Deerfield
Beach. Beall's commits to a
60,000 square foot department
store in Rivertowne Square,
World of D'cor on US 1 is
constructing 50,000 square
feet of showroom space and
Duffy's sports bar moves
into the defunct Roadhouse
Grill location on US 1.
Already drawing crowds
is the new Super Target at
Powerline Road and Hillsboro
Boulevard.
Four Deerfield Beach
firefighters are lauded for
their efforts in saving a Coast
Guardsman caught in a
riptide off Deerfield's beach.
Two Coast Guard officers had
pulled several people from
the surf on Aug. 31, when
one of them was swept away.
Firefighter Thomas Noland
was first in the water and
pulled the man to safety. Also

OCTOBER
Commissioners call Boinis'
beach land overpriced and
refuse to seek any more funds
for it. Boinis vows to privatize
the sand and a few weeks
later, he does.
"You're telling him we'll
meet his price. As a taxpayer,
I find this deplorable. Even
grant money is our money,"
- Mayor Al Capellini
Commissioners draw for
terms and District 1 and 2
draw the short straws meaning
terms for those seats in the
March 2009 election will be
for only two years. Seats 3
and 4 remain at four years as
does the mayor's position. In
2011, District 1 and 2 terms
will revert to four years.
A bid by Commissioner
Marty Popelsky to extend the
firefighters' DROP benefits
from five to seven years is
rejected after City Manager
Mike Mahaney said he, had
never seen a matter which is
part of contract negotiations
discussed publicly. The city
begins negotiations with the
fire union again in April.
NOVEMBER
Brazen thieves steal bronze
marker at Sullivan Park that
commemorated the Seminole
Indian War. The plaque was
placed on a large piece of
coral rock in 1976 by the
Deerfield Beach Woman's
Club and the DAR. So far,
no leads in the case, but
the incident has brought
attention to the park's shabby
appearance and members of
the Woman's Club would like
to see improvements there.
US Customs offers the
city a 165-foot freighter as
a habitat for sea life. The
ship will be towed here from
Miami and sunk 1.5 miles

DECEMBER
Dist. 4 Commissioner Steve
Gonot resigns his post Dec.
11 and turns himself into the
county jail to face 3rd degree
felony charges that he spent


over $5,000 in campaign
funds for personal use. He is
charged with grand theft and
official misconduct, but calls
the charges unfounded and
said he resigned in order to
focus on defending himself
. Gonot, 52, was completing
eight years on the commission
and had announced last year
that he would run for mayor.
"It is my belief these
charges are political
in nature." Former
commissioner Steve Gonot


On Dec. 12, Mayor Al
Capellini,60, is arrested after
an investigation by the state
attorney's office and charged
with accepting money from
a developer to move a plat
plan through governmental
processes but not properly
disclosing his involvement.
Capellini's company, Crain
Atlantis Engineering, held
a $16,500 contract with
owners of property at Natura
Boulevard and Natura
Avenue for platting and


developmental support. At
a June 2003 commission
meeting, Capellini voted for
the plat but did not disclose
his interest in the matter
according to the state's
investigator. Following
his arrest, Capellini was
suspended by the governor.
Capellini says he intends to
stay in the 2009 mayoral race.
At the Dec. 16 meeting,
faced with two vacancies due
to the fact Vice Mayor Sylvia
Poitier moved into Capellini's


chair, commissioners decide
not to fill the seats until after
the Jan. 9 qualifying deadline
for the March 2009 election
and to select no one that had
filed to run.
Interested citizens were
asked to submit resumes to
the city clerk by Dec. 30.
Commissioners will review
the resumes at the Jan. 13
meeting. A simple majority
vote selects the replacements
who will serve until March 13
when the new commission is
