Lauderdale-By-The-Sea residents
of Bel Air returned to Jarvis Hall this
week in an attempt to convince their
commissioners to let them keep their
boats on trailers in their yards.


MarJo Lexa presented a petition
signed by 113 Bel Air residents asking
the commission to support the neigh-
bors' rights to use their property and
keep their boats and trailers.
As she canvassed her neighborhood,

Deerfield Beach mayoral

candidate has tragic past


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
C. Don Petersen, a candidate for
mayor in Deerfield Beach, has a per-
sonal history that includes the murder
of his estranged wife seven years ago
in Fort Caroline, a city near Jackson-
ville. Petersen, 44, now a single par-
ent of two children, came back to this
area after the tragedy and lives in The
Cove. He said this week his children
understand his desire to enter politics
and can handle the public's interest in
their mother. "They've lived with it
all this time. She is still a part of our
lives," he said. "They know I love
Deerfield Beach."


Peterson grew up in this area and
graduated from Pompano Beach High
School. His children are now 15 and
11.

Chadwell did respond
later admitting that while he
did file bankruptcy and went
through a foreclosure 17 years
earlier, the issues were per-
sonal. He declined to discuss
them.
But on "lying" to the
commission, Chadwell said
that charge was untrue, and *
he had never been in any way
"deceitful" on his resume.
Previous to serving as city
manager in Pompano Beach,
Chadwell served as chief op-
erating officer of the depart-
ment of human services in
Washington, DC and ran the
Virginia Department of Social

reduced 12 employee posi-
tions.
Commissioner Rex Har-
din says every city manager
has distractors. "But, Mr.
Chadwell has amassed a size-
able group in a short amount
of time. That creates a distrac-
tion for Mr. Chadwell, and
it concerns me when there
is any distraction from the
business of the city. Any time
you've got people upset, it
concerns me. Some of the
issues that have been brought
up need to be addressed. I
would say that Mr. Chadwell
should discuss specific prob-
lems brought up at the meet-
ing. It was painful [meeting]. I
felt bad for the entire episode,
for Mr. Chadwell and that
residents felt it was necessary
to speak out like that. We've
got big things to worry about
and things to accomplish."
Chadwell has also been
a member of the national
Commission on Accreditation
for Law Enforcement Agen-
cies, position he earned with
a unanimous vote from four
other agencies, including the
National Sheriff's Organiza-
tion and the International As-
sociation of Police Chiefs.
As to the remarks from his
distractors, Chadwell says he
fully intends to continue as
'city manager.
"The public will witness
new moves in economic areas
and new efforts in redevelop-
ment," said Chadwell. "I am
poised to meet these challeng-
es in these difficult economic
times."

Water bills

microcosm of what we've
been reading about."
Faced with the dual prob-
lems of mortgage payments
higher than promised and a
dwindling job market, owners
of the 168 units at 1331 S. Di-
xie Highway collectively owe
the City of Deerfield Beach
$90,000 in water and garbage
fees. Tuesday night, with no
solution in sight, commission-
ers agreed with City Manager
Mike Mahaney that if no pay-
ment is received, the water
will be shut off Feb. 9. "We
need to stop the bleeding,"
Mahaney said.
The seven buildings once
touted to represent $24 mil-
lion in equity are today worth
between $4 and $5 million,
Maurodis said.
Formerly rental apartments,
the 40-year-old buildings
were converted to condomini-
ums two years ago and sold
for down payments as low as
$500 and monthly mortgage
payments in the $700 $1000
range.
When the prospective own-
ers went to closing they found
their payments to be $1,300
to $1,800 Vice Mayor Sylvia
Poitier said. With some of
them holding two and three
jobs, they signed the contracts
"and then their jobs ran out."
Poitier has contacted the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development in Miami
and has "been assured" they
will investigate the financing
at Deerfield Palms. "I don't
know when or how fast," she

added.
But in the meantime, city
officials struggle to find a
remedy for the fact the delin-
quent water bill puts the city
in violation of its water bond
covenants.
Mahaney went out to the
complex with a handout print-
ed in both English and Creole
and found conflicts within
the homeowners' association
there. He said the game plan
was to get the current monthly
amount owed, $10,000 to
$12,000, plus $1,000 to put
toward the unpaid balance.
Under Florida law, the city
holds a 'super lien' on the


property because the water
and sewer systems are fi-
nanced by revenue bonds.
So all the properties could
be attached, Maurodis said,
which means foreclosing
on 168 mortgage holders, a
measure that would require
an "exhaustive title search.
It's the most promising, but
also the most expensive and
the most difficult option," the
attorney said.
The water/sewer/garbage
bill is paid by the condo as-
sociation from the monthly
maintenance fees and not by
the individual unit owners.
Poitier said she has been en-


couraging the residents to pay
their association fees rather
than their mortgages and has
also contacted the Florida De-
partment of Business Regu-
lation who "saw something
very wrong. This will end in
the attorney general's office,"
she predicted. "I'm concerned
about us getting justice for


these people."
Poitier agreed with Mah-
aney that the water should be
cut off at Deerfield Palms in
hopes that entities such as the
Haitian American Coalition
will come to the residents' aid.
"The quicker the water is cut
off, the more help we'll get,"
she said.

Boats
Continued from page 1

sign for fear of retaliation, and
10 didn't support the effort to
keep
the boats. She said those 10
included three who said cars
shouldn't be in driveways.
Marjo Lexa's husband, Bill
Hart, and several other resi-
dents asked commissioners to
reinstate the Broward County


code, which applied in the
area prior to
annexation, and allow the
boats. Hart said boat storage
would cost about $2,000 an- .
nually.
During a code workshop
Tuesday, Commissioner Stu-
art Dodd asked Jeff Bowman,
development services director,
if the town had been flooded
with complaints about boats
in Bel Air.
Bowman said no.


Eighteen residents received
letters from the town Sept. 11
noting that they were in viola-
tion of the town,'s ordinance
and had 30 days to comply
voluntarily. In December,
14 residents were cited and
received notices of violation.
All were in Bel Air or Terra
Mar.
Dodd suggested more
leniency. "We may need to
tighten the code and make
sure boats are in operating
order. If we impose a law that
allows no boats, we're taking
away rights they had before
annexation, and that's not fair.
The neighbors are getting
along well. Let them continue
and don't impose restrictions
where we don't have a prob-
lem," Dodd said.
Commissioner Birute Clot-
tey, a Bel Air resident, said
she received tons of calls from


people who don't want boats
and trailers in the yards.:
"Many remember when they
weren't allowed. Then there
was an interim where people
did what they wanted. Do we
know how many want them?"
Clottey asked. "People got
caught, and they will have to
pay.extra to store their boats.
What about the neighbors
who don't want them? Don't
they count for anything?"
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee,
also a Bel Air resident, said
he'd had six calls on the issue,
evenly divided pro and con.
He-estimated that at annexa-
tion there were boats at eight
houses. He suggested anyone
who owned a boat then should
be allowed to keep it but not
the others. He doesn't support
trailers under any circum-
stances.
Mayor Roseann Minnet said
boats are allowed, but they
must be in a structure. She
suggested adding stronger
language to the ordinance to


define a nuisance.
McIntee asked the com-
mission to add a grandfather
clause to the ordinance, allow-
ing residents who had boats
in their yards at the time of
annexation of the north end of
town to keep them. The
motion passed 4-1, Dodd
dissenting.
"We stirred up a hornet's
nest. If there was such a
problem, why wasn't code
flooded with complaints?"
Dodd asked. "We're being
restrictive unnecessarily. If
they're interfering with their
neighbors, we would hear a
lot more about it."
At the regular commission
meeting Tuesday, three resi-
dents spoke against allowing
the boats and seven for the
boats.
One Terra Mar resident,
who opposed boats and
campers in driveways, said he
moved there because he didn't
want to live in a town that
looked like Pompano Beach.

PELICAN STAFF
Bad economic news was overpow-
ered by the generosity and desire of
residents and business owners to make
the holidays happy for the clients of
Children's Home Society. Mounds of
dolls, teddy bears, toys, games, gift
cards, clothing and more for children
from tots to teens began to pile up at
collection points in Lighthouse Point,
Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea and throughout Broward County.
Rosemarie Stiegele, director of
development at Children's Home So-
ciety in Fort Lauderdale, was thrilled
with "the outpouring of the generosity
of the community. Over 3,000 children
and families in Broward County had
an exceptionally good holiday sea-
son. We anticipated less and received
more than ever," and then she sang
the praises of Michele Greene who is
the chairman of the agency's board of
directors. "Michele seems to generate
limitless connections of people who
contribute to our needs and therefore,
our clients. We are so grateful to her."
Greene, who has been active in
Children's Home for many years, has
headed up The Holiday Gift Drive for
10 years. For her, it's a labor of love
because she says, "We all worked
together for one common goal, to get
gifts for the children who might oth-
erwise think that holidays are only for
other people."
Greene also serves as president of
the Lighthouse Point, or LHP, Cham-
ber of Commerce. She works closely
with her counterpart and friend, Judy
Swaggerty, executive director of the
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Chamber of
Commerce, or LBTS. Both chambers

Greene says. "This year, Curves at
2438 N. Federal Hwy. in LHP joined
our effort. Curves owner, Nicole
Bertke is very community minded and
in the course of the year holds blood
drives, food drives and a fund raiser
for breast cancer."
Bertke explains, "I have access to
many generous clients who help make
all of these drives a success, including
the Holiday Gift Drive. Between club
members and staff, we filled up a huge
area with gifts for boys and girls of
all ages including gift cards, sport-
ing equipment and toys for the young
ones."
One of those Curves members,
Robin Labita, Pompano Beach, heard
about the collection and got into the


act in a big way. "When I made the
trip to drop off our collection at LBTS
my truck was packed with toys,"
she says. "I felt like Santa as I drove
along with teddy bears piled up beside
me. Cars tooted, waved and gave me
thumbs up as they drove by. Once
again I was reminded that it is better
to give than receive."
Swaggerty recalls how she felt
when Robin arrived with her collec-
tion, saying, "We all went out to help
her unload and actually stood there
and cried; we were so overwhelmed
by the sight of that packed truck with
basketballs, toys, clothes and gifts. We
had been a collection drop off all of
November and December. Two of our

Remember the man, and reread the

speech, I Have a Dream
By Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the
greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we
stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree
came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been
seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end
the long night of their captivity.
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years
later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation
and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a
lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One
hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American
society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today
to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the
architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and
the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which
every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black
men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note
insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred
obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has
come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank
of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the
great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check
- a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security
of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the
fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or
to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the
promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate val- "
ley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our
nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.
Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This
sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there
is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an
end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam
and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to
business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the
Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to
shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm
threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our
rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy


Dream, continued

our thirst for freedom by drinking from
the cup of bitterness and hatred.
We must forever conduct our strug-
gle on the high plane of dignity and dis-
cipline. We must not allow our creative
protest to degenerate into physical vio-
lence. Again and again we must rise to
the majestic heights of meeting physical
force with soul force. The marvelous
new militancy which has engulfed the
Negro community must not lead us to
a distrust of all white people, for many
of our white brothers, as evidenced by
their presence here today, have come to
realize that their destiny is tied up with
our destiny. They have come to realize
that their freedom is inextricably bound
to our freedom. We cannot walk alone.
As we walk, we must make the
pledge that we shall always march
ahead. We cannot turn back. There are
those who are asking the devotees of
civil rights, "When will you be satis-
fied? We can never be satisfied as
long as the Negro is the victim of the
unspeakable horrors of police brutal-
ity. We can never be satisfied, as long
as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue
of travel, cannot gain lodging in the
motels of the highways and the hotels
of the cities. We cannot be satisfied
as long as the Negro's basic mobility
is from a smaller ghetto to a larger
one. We can never be satisfied as long
as our children are stripped of their
selfhood and robbed of their dignity by
signs stating "For Whites Only". We
cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro
in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro
in New York believes he has nothing
for which to vote. No, no, we are not
satisfied, and we will not be satisfied
until justice rolls down like waters and
righteousness like a mighty stream.
I am not unmindful that some of
you have come here out of great trials
and tribulations. Some of you have
come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some
of you have come from areas where
your quest for freedom left you battered
by the storms of persecution and stag-
gered by the winds of police brutality.
You have been the veterans of creative
suffering. Continue to work with the
faith that unearned suffering is redemp-
tive.
Go back to Mississippi, go back to
Alabama, go back to South Carolina,
go back to Georgia, go back to Louisi-
ana, go back to the slums and ghettos
of our northern cities, knowing that
somehow this situation can and will be
changed. Let us not wallow in the val-
ley of despair.
I say to you today, my friends, so
even though we face the difficulties
of today and tomorrow, I still have a
dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in
the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this
nation will rise up and live out the true
meaning of its creed: "We hold these
truths to be self-evident: that all men
are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the
red hills of Georgia the sons of former
slaves and the sons of former slave


owners will be able to sit down togeth-
er at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even
the state of Mississippi, a state swelter-
ing with the heat of injustice, swelter-
ing with the heat of oppression, will be
transformed into an oasis of freedom
and justice.
I have a dream that my four little
children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the
color of their skin but by the content of
their character. I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down
in Alabama, with its vicious racists,
with its governor having his lips drip-
ping with the words of interposition
and nullification; one day right there
in Alabama, little black boys and black
girls will be able to join hands with lit-
tle white boys and white girls as sisters
and brothers. I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day
every valley shall be exalted, every
hill and mountain shall be made low,
the rough places will be made plain,
and the crooked places will be made
straight, and the glory of the Lord shall
be revealed, and all flesh shall see it
together.
This is our hope. This is the faith
that I go back to the South with. With
this faith we will be able to hew out
of the mountain of despair a stone of
hope. With this faith we will be able to
transform the jangling discords of our
nation into a beautiful symphony of
brotherhood. With this faith we will be
able to'work together, to pray together,
to struggle together, to go to jail togeth-
er, to stand up for freedom together,
knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of
God's children will be able to sing with
a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of
thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I
sing. Land where my fathers died, land
of the pilgrim's pride, from every moun-
tainside, let freedom ring."
And if America is to be a great
nation this must become true. So let
freedom ring from the prodigious hill-
tops of New Hampshire. Let freedom
ring from the mighty mountains of New
York. Let freedom ring from the height-
ening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snow-
capped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curva-
ceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring
from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout
Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill
and molehill of Mississippi. From every
mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we
allow freedom to ring, when we let it
ring from every village and every ham-
let, from every state and every city, we
will be able to speed up that day when
all of God's children, black men and
white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protes-
tants and Catholics, will be able to join
hands and sing in the words of the old
Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at
last! thank God Almighty, we are free
at last!"


The Pelican staff joins all communities in the celebration of
courage, initiative and dream of the late Dr. Martin Luther
King.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
(January 15, 1929 April
4, 1968) was an African
American clergyman, activist
and prominent leader in the
American civil rights move-
ment. His main legacy was to
secure progress on civil rights


in the United States and he is
frequently referenced as a hu-
man rights icon today.
A Baptist minister, King
became a civil rights activ-
ist early in his career. He led
the 1955 Montgomery Bus
Boycott and helped found the
Southern Christian Leadership
Conference in 1957, serving
as its first president.
King's efforts led to the
1963 March on Washington,
where King delivered his "I


Have a Dream" speech. There,
he raised public consciousness
of the civil rights movement
and established himself as one
of the greatest orators in U.S.
history.
In 1964, King became the
youngest person to receive
the Nobel Peace Prize for his
work to end racial segrega-
tion and racial discrimination
through civil disobedience
and other non-violent means.
By the time of his death in


1968, he had refocused his
efforts on ending poverty and
opposing the Vietnam War,
both from a religious perspec-
tive.
King was assassinated on
April 4, 1968, in Memphis,
Tennessee. He was posthu-
mously awarded the Presi-
dential Medal of Freedom in
1977 and Congressional Gold
Medal in 2004; Martin Luther
King, Jr. Day was established
as a U.S. national holiday in
1986

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

vice mayor to hold fire

deputy chief position
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER

s MclLauderdale-By-The-Sea
Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee has
been elected deputy chief of
the paid Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment or VFD.
McIntee said he won by
a strong majority in a closed
ballot election of members on
Jan. 12. Robert Perkins was
re-elected fire chief.
In June, the State of
Florida Commission on Eth-
ics found probable cause for
a possible ethics violation by
Mclntee. The commission
Mclntee said McIntee had a prohibited
conflict of interest that could interfere with the discharge of his
public duties to the town by virtue of his position as both com-
missioner and deputy fire chief for the VFD.
"However, because the respondent (Mclntee) was not act-
ing to benefit himself and because the action of the commission
in this matter will serve to correct future conduct by the respon-
dent, the commission will take no further action at this time,"
the commission said.
Asked about the possibility of a conflict of interest now,
McIntee said, "I'm not getting into that. I have nothing further
to say."
McIntee wrote to the Commission on Ethics in December
for "an ethics opinion" on his holding the position of deputy
chief of the LBTS VFD (while also serving as vice mayor.)
In his letter, he said he receives no compensation for his
service provided to the VFD and in the position of deputy chief
would still receive zero compensation.

At the time of the crime,
police questioned Petersen
twice. The court ordered
psychological tests which
were never made public and
although Petersen agreed to a
lie detector test, the test was
never given. No charges were
ever filed.
Petersen said some people
in and around the family tried
to make trouble for him. He
said this week he was with
other family members when
his wife Mary was killed.
According to a five-year-
old article in the Times-
Union, Mary Petersen was
found by her son in her
bedroom. Her daughter, then
five, was also in the house.


The couple was in divorce
proceedings and Mary Peters-
en reportedly told co-workers
she feared her husband. In the
article, Petersen refuted the
workers' statements.
Petersen is employed by
Abbott Laboratories as a sales
rep and trainer.

Five other candidates
round out the race for mayor
including suspended mayor Al
Capellini who has held the job
for 20 years, former mayor
Jean Robb, former Dist. 1
commissioner Peggy Noland,
Century Village activist Caryl
Anne Berner and another
newcomer to the political
scene here, Donald Cleveland,
a resident of The Waterways
who is in the commercial
insurance business. According


to his resume, he has been a
lobbyist for many years and at
one time was risk manager for
the largest public construction
authority in the U.S.

serving as mayor. She said
Tuesday night of her tempo-
rary position, "I never would
have thought it... at age 73, I
come back to be mayor. It is a
happy time in my life."
Poitier served as mayor
here in the '70s and later was
appointed to the Broward
County Commission, a posi-
tion she held for many years.
Interim commissioners
named
Gloria Battle and Colleen
DiDonato were chosen for
District 2 and District 4 com-
mission seats Tuesday night,
replacing Commissioner
Steve Gonot (Dist. 4) and
Mayor Al Capellini, both of
whom have been charged with


felonies related to their posi-
tions. Battle, a U.S. Census
worker and Deerfield Beach
native, and DiDonato, a
housewife who served on the
Telecommunications Commit-
tee, will hold office until the
new commission is sworn in
March 13.
Battle was chosen by lot
after Andrew Pratt and Andre
Samuels were each nominated
by a commissioner. Battle,
who withdrew from the Dis-
trict 2 race after announcing
she would run against Sylvia
Poitier, was nominated by
Poitier. DiDonato was the
unanimous choice of the com-
mission for the District 4 seat.

PELICAN WRITER
In my opinion, it's poetic
justice that the ubiquitous
Ficus hedge is under attack by
the Ficus Whitefly and Ficus
Thrips. Monoculture, the
over planting of one species


of plant, is never healthy,
and in this case, it has proven
disastrous for those who were
depending on their hedges for
privacy.
The University of Florida
recommends hiring a profes-
sional to drench the roots
with systemic chemicals that
kill the insects. (For more
information on the pests go
to UF's highly informative
website: edis.ifas.ufl.edu).
Treatment for the pest is
very costly and will need to
be done several times per
year.
This practice is also det-
rimental to wildlife and the
environment.
If it's possible, choose the
wiser path and replace the
Ficus hedge.


Once established, a new
hedge will be much easier to
maintain, environmentally
sustainable and more beauti-
ful.
Most people would like to
keep their hedges at about 5 to
10 feet. This offers plenty of
privacy and is easiest to main-
tain, but to a Ficus benjamin,
the one most commonly used
for hedges, this is a crude
joke.
Folks, there is absolutely
nothing sacred about a Ficus
hedge. It is no more than a
cheap convenience for the
housing industry, a cash crop
for the nurseries that supply
them and the landscapers that
maintain them.
Look what's happened:

votes. The chair of the Charter
Review Committee, Schubert
said she is interested in mov-
ing some of the committee's
recommendations forward
that have been rejected by the
current commission.
Polin was appointed to the
commission three years ago -
to replace Connie Callogero
who became ill. He then ran
and was elected to a two-year
term. He could not be reached
for comment.
McGarry said she is seek-
ing re-election because of
the "tremendous" amount of
work she has put in on beach
erosion and the decision to
repair the town's water plant.
"I want.to see these projects
move forward," she said. "It
is important to have continu-
ity on the commission and I
have been encouraged to run
again."
Dodge, the general manag-
er of the Hillsboro Club, said
he is running to help maintain
the status quo the town's
desires. "Our residents clearly
don't want any change. I am
totally against big govern-
ment," he said. Dodge also
said his experience with major
building projects will be help-
ful when water plant construc-
tion begins. "It's an important
time to have consistency," he
said.
Bennett was out of town
this week and did not return
messages.


Hedges
Continued from page 14


only the pesticide companies
are loving them now!
In fact, there are dozens
of shrubs more beautiful and
practical, than this frustrated
tree.
I am going to list some
native shrubs that will grow
easily in our soils given
partial shade to full sun, and
seldom grow higher than
10 feet if left to their own
devices. In addition, they are
in most cases quick growing,
flowering, fragrant, wildlife
sustaining, highly drought
tolerant once established, and
best of all rarely, if ever, need
trimming, just an occasional
once a year shaping if you are
the formal type.
Promote biodiversity by


planting several species in-
stead of just one kind in a bor-
ing row. This is by no means
an exhaustive list. Do some
research and choose those
shrubs (not trees!) that will be
tolerant of our rather poor soil
and limited water. Here are
some possible replacements:
Beautyberry, Firebush, Jamai-
can Caper, Marlberry (part
shade), Necklace Pod, White
Indigoberry and Wild Coffee
(part shade).
Some acceptable non-na-
tives for a clipped look would
be Viburnum suspensum,
Arboricola, Copperleaf (Aca-
lypha sp.) and Podocarpus.
Hedge your bets on some
of these.

He said the deputy chief
supervises and directs fire op-
erations at active scenes and


makes sure all training de-
mands are met by department
members. He has nothing to
do with corporate decisions or
spending funds.
In a response, Vinlindia
Doss, commission deputy ex-


ecutive director, wrote that for
a conflict to exist "it must be
determined whether you have
a contractual or employment
relationship with the VFD. In
the absence of such a relation-
ship, there can be no viola-
tion."
As of May 1, 2008, McIn-
tee said he had declined any
compensation from the depart-
ment.
"Refusal to accept com-
pensation, given in advance or
by writing, coupled with ac-
tual refusal of compensation,
would negate the element of

The mar-
ket will be
the topic at

During the growing season,

Until the mid-1950s, the

cal historian Bud Garner will

Farmers Market's early years.
Bud worked at the State Farm-
ers Market in 1940s, as did a
number of current Pompano
Beach residents.
The free program is open
to the public and will be held
at the Dick & Miriam Hood
Center, 217 NE 4th Avenue,
Pompano Beach. It begins at 7
p.m. The public is invited. Call

One of the leading

surgical teams
is now at

Broward Health
Imperial Point
Medical Center.






















Your surgeon now has a new assistant at Broward Health
Imperial Point Medical Center...the da Vinci robot.
Together, this team offers you the most advanced treatment
for gynecological and urological conditions.
The da Vinciapproach is less invasive which means
minimal scarring. Your surgeon's capabilities are now en-
hanced with the da Vinci by providing superior visualization,
improved dexterity, and greater precision.
As a result, patients undergoing a hysterectomy or
prostatectomy, may now experience less pain,
a shorter hospital stay and a faster return to normal activities.
