Updating of

Top Priority in

Lighthouse Point

Commissioners prepare to
pass stringent new regula-

By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER
"One of our main jobs is the safety
and security of our city" said Mayor
Fred Schorr before commencing the
draft reading of proposed new legis-
lation that would bring Lighthouse
Point's animal laws in line with neigh-
boring municipalities.
"The fact is that our Ordinance
is over 30 years old. It needs to be
updated" said Commissioner Michael
Long.
Dozens of local residents were on
hand at last week's meeting to voice

Maritime theme fixture along Atlantic
Boulevard and the
proposed development near the Mu-

residents drawing lines, in the sand.
On one side are the proponents of
the Atlantic Overlay District theme, or
AOD, which calls for an Old Florida
Maritime theme.
That idea came from a series of
public meetings more than ten years
ago when residents met with designers
and architects to settle on a theme that

Pompano Beach residents rally at

Blanche Ely to celebrate MLK Day

President Barack Obama enthusiasm added momentum to the event


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther
King Day in Pompano Beach had
the added excitement of the pend-
ing inauguration of President Barack
Obama this year..
The King Celebration committee
produced tee shirts that carried the
images of King and Obama with the
inscription "I Have a Dream, 1968- I
am the Dream, 2009"
After the annual parade, cel-
ebrants of MLK Day gathered at the
gymnasium of Blanche Ely High
School where John Mohorn, Word of
Living God Ministries, drew another
parallel comparing King to the Bibli-
cal Moses who led the Israelites to the
"Promised Land" without entering the
land himself.
"Dr. King," Mohorn said, "told us
he had seen the Promised Land, but
he may not get there."
King was assassinated in 1968.

Hillsboro Beach to hold special meeting to address erosion problems


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Beach erosion and what
to do about it is the only
agenda item on Monday's
special meeting of the Hills-
boro Beach Commission at 9


a.m. Coastal consultant Dr.
Michael Stephen and DEP
engineer Wesley Fitch will
be available via telephone tea
answer questions City Clerk
Dana Williams said.
S eTh'ession was called af-
ter reside -ts o Overlook-


came to the Jan. 6 commis-
sion meeting seeking help for
a severe erosion problem they
say threatens their building.
Commissioner Tom Pul-
eri, who heads up the town's
erosion prevention efforts,
said he is hoping people will
come to the meeting Monday
having made progress on their
problems.
"I told the Overlook six


weeks ago that the town can-
not do anything until they
get a report from a structural
engineer. I am hoping they
show up and have started the
process. There is absolutely
nothing we can do without
that information."
The town is in the process
of applying for a beach re-
nourishment application from
the state which is expected in


November with the project
itself getting underway in
December.
Last year, devices to trap
sand were installed at the
north end of the beach where
erosion does the most dam-
age and sand was hauled in
to establish a beach in front
of Port de Mer. "The town
has done all it possibly can,"
Puleri said.

their support for the proposed
new rules.
One resident described
how his own dog had been
viciously mauled and killed
by another dog that was off its
leash. Others expressed their
daily fears of living in neigh-
borhoods where dangerous
dogs were present and poorly
supervised. One mail car-
rier was on hand to provide
concurring opinions about the
potential dangers posed by
these animals.
If a new ordinance is ad-
opted, it would add a defini-
tion section, including defini-
tions for "Dangerous Dogs.".
The new law would provide
more specific regulations for
owners whose dogs are found
to be dangerous. These would
include enclosure require-
ments, hearing procedures,
registration of dangerous
dogs, insurance of $100,000
and financial responsibility
requirements and annual fees
for ownership of dangerous
dogs.
In his report, City At-
torney Michael Cirullo said
"current Florida law specifi-
cally prohibits the city from
breed-specific regulations of
dogs. On this point, Mayor.
Schorr vowed to work at get-
ting this law repealed.
If adopted, the revised
ordinance will classify a
dog as dangerous if it has,
unprovoked, approached any
person in a menacing fashion
or apparent attitude of attack
upon the streets, sidewalks, or

provided that such actions are
attested to in a sworn state-
ment by one or more persons
and dutifully investigated by
an officer; or has killed or
caused the death of a domes-
tic animal, or severely injured
a domestic animal, while off
the owner's or keeper's prop-
erty and while unprovoked
or has aggressively bitten,
attacked, endangered, killed,
or inflicted severe injury on
a human being on public or
private property; or or has
been used primarily or in part
for the purpose of dog fight-
ing or is a dog trained for dog
fighting.
"There seem to be more
and more cases of dogs ex-
hibiting aggression, attacking
other animals and humans as
well. People are terrified, es-
pecially in a community like
ours where there are so many


children" said LP Police Chief
Ross Licata.
"I fall in the category
where family pets are like
children. This is a major prob-
lem, and I will do whatever I
need to help" said Commis-
sioner Chip Lamarca.
Other key points found in
the revised ordinance would
be a specific limit on the num-
ber of pets that can be owned
by the same property owner.
Tentatively, that number has
been set at four dogs or cats or
any combination, but commis-
sioners were uncertain wheth-
er this would be a reasonable
figure. In addition, maintain-
ing any pets in unsanitary con-
ditions would be a violation of
the regulations.
In addition, the ordinance
reads, "The actions of an
animal constitute a nuisance
when an animal disturbs the
rights of, threatens the safety

PELICAN WRITER
"To a military man like me, who
has lived all over this country and
much of the world, John Knox Village
or JKV is as close to the Garden of
Eden as I've ever been," John Hooker
says. "It's like living in a park. Mary
and I are very happy we chose this
retirement Village seven years ago. I
think I've already been here longer
than I have ever been any other place
in my life."
Being heavily involved in leader-
ship and instruction is a life pattern
for Hooker, so it's no surprise to learn
he is almost as busy volunteering as
he was in his many faceted career.
Currently he is the president of the
Village Senate, the resident governing
body consisting of 34 senators and 34
alternates representing almost 1,000
residents.
Geri Gunderson, a past president
of the Village Senate, said, "It's a hard
job to deal with the issues brought up
by the residents and manage not to an-
tagonize the management at the same
time. I'd estimate spending from 15
to 20 hours a week between attend-
ing meetings and writing necessary
reports. John will be very successful
using the skills from his impressive
career to enhance the power of the
Senate."
Before assuming this responsibil-
ity, Hooker served as Chairman of the
Long Range Planning Committee for
five years and was a member of the
Finance Committee for four years.
Norm Rasmussen, past board
member and current advisory board
member gives Hooker raves, saying,
"He organized the people on the Long
Range Planning Committee to accom-
plish a great deal and in so doing set
a standard for the rest to follow. He
brings the same organizational skills

visited by General Hodes in 1953.


p~


to running the Senate and once again,
he will set a new bench mark."
An authority on the Civil War,
Hooker was happy to share his knowl-
edge with his neighbors delivering
three different, 10-lecture series to Vil-
lage residents. They were all enthusi-
astically attended.
Hooker went on to create a Civil
War library in Heritage Towers, donat-
ing his entire book collection which he
says is the largest in South Florida.
Sitting at his desk in his villa,
Hooker was happy to reminisce about
his career and travels. "I am a child
of seven generations of military men.
Growing up, I never lived anywhere

longer than 18 months. I started my
own army career as a private and
ended up a full Colonel. I served three
years in Japan, two seven year tours in
Germany and six months in Ethiopia
doing a National Intelligence Survey.
I loved the military and remained in
it until the National Security Agency
offered me an opportunity to continue
my intelligence career for four more
years."
Then he did a complete career
switch, exiting the military and buy-
ing a radio station in Hawaii. "I loved

Pompano Beach needs to step up

the pace on redevelopment and

stop tripping over the small stuff

By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER
We like the Old Florida Maritime theme that was developed 10 years ago.by
the citizens of Pompano Beach.
It's a natural for this city, named for a fish.
It was a good move for the Pompano Beach Commission to vote down last
week's resolution to hire a firm that would use taxpayer money to mull over
another theme and add delay to building out the city.
We encourage the commission to hold developers to that theme and help
create a seaside city that's pedestrian-friendly and full of upscale shops, eateries
and entertainment outlets.
Recently I met with a member of the professional community, asking him
how he saw Pompano developing.
He said he hadn't thought much about it, but he did say that he and his wife
enjoy walking the beach at Deerfield or traveling to Delray for food and enter-
tainment.
"How about taking your dollars to Pompano for the evening?" I asked.
Again, he hadn't thought about it.
The interesting point was that it was the beach, the food and the entertain-
ment that had big draws for this couple.
Probably if I had asked him about the unifying theme of Deerfield Beach or
Delray Beach, I might have received nothing more than a puzzled look.
The Old Florida Maritime is simply an aesthetic look that reminds us of our
identity.
This city needs more upscale restaurants, and the already present upscale
restaurants need more visitors.
They will come if the city moves forward with beach renovation, offering
pleasant and safe walks along the beach.
But there is so much more.
The Hillsboro Inlet is an internationally known marine entrance into the
state and this city. The local airpark, the train depot and the Interstate make this
city easily accessible.
It's time for this commission to move on with redevelopment and with it the
theme that the public has asked for-Old Florida Maritime.
This quibbling over an issue that was decided 10 years ago is symptomatic
of this commission's failure to see the big issues-the need for redevelopment,
for hotels, more business, more shops and more restaurants.
Do Pompano Beach a big favor. Times are tough. Stop the delays.


Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Mayor asks

residents, tourists to 'Ride the Hopper'
By Roseann Minnet --
LBTS MAYOR
The New Year has started and already the
county is finding ways to cut back. This past week I .
received notification from town that the ridership on -
the LBTS Pelican Hopper is low and the county will
be pulling the funds unless the citizens can increase
ridership. This service is a necessity for our com-
munity.
The beauty of our town is the close proximity
to shopping, entertainment and recregion. Many of .
our residents do not drive, and the Pelican Hopper
serves a basic need to provide transportation.
Let's help our neighbors by riding the Pelican Hopper. Not only does the
Pelican Hopper serve the community but it helps reduce our green house emis-
sions by eliminating more cars on our highways.
Community transportation should not be an "OPTION." it should be the
first thing we think of to keep our community green. Schedules for the Pelican
Hopper are on line and brochures are available at the Chamber and Town Hall.
The Hopper will even pull over and stop to pick you up. Please help the town
and residents of LBTS "SAVE THE PELICAN HOPPER."




How to Shut Down the Fifty Dirtiest

Coal Power Plants in the US
By Norbert Izworski
PELICAN WRITER


It is as simple as changing a light bulb. Lighting accounts for about twenty
percent of the average household's energy bill, so changing all of our incandes-
cent light bulbs to compact florescent lights (CFLs) would have a major impact.
Energy Star CFLs use up to eighty percent less energy than conventional light
bulbs.
"If all of our lighting was switched to high efficiency bulbs, we would save
enough energy to shut down up to 90 average-size power plants." www.earth-
easy.com
A study conducted in 2005 by the Commission for Environmental Coopera-
tion found that a small percentage of the nation's 15,000 power plants release
most of the emissions into the atmosphere. These emissions contribute signifi-
cantly to acid rain, haze, smog and climate change, as well as toxic mercury
found in fish, and then eaten by people.
Another study called, "Dirty Kilowatts" conducted in 2007 by the Environ-
mental Integrity Project, states that just 50 old, dirty and inefficient coal power
plants, out of the nation's 1,700 coal power plants, account for forty percent of
the sulfur dioxide emissions, twenty-five percent of the nitrous Oxide emis-
sions, and one third of the mercury pollution, but produce only about fourteen
percent of the nation's electricity.
Coal power plants produce forty-three percent of the nation's electricity, and
are one of the biggest contributors of global warming pollution. About two
thirds of the heat energy that is generated at a typical coal-fired power plant is
wasted, and that inefficiency contributes directly to high carbon dioxide emis-
sions at these facilities. Eliminating carbon dioxide emissions from existing
power plants is not possible at this time, but emissions could be greatly reduced
by lowering demand through energy efficiency and conservation. Since the
average home uses less than thirty light bulbs, for $100 the entire home could
be converted to high efficiency CFLs. It will save you money on your electric
bills, and reduce demand for electricity.
When purchasing CFLs look for the Energy Star label to guarantee high ef-
ficiency and long life. CFLs can be matched to equivalent incandescent bulb
brightness. For example, a sixty-watt equivalent uses only thirteen watts of
electricity. CFLs are available in both warm-white and cool-white. They also
come in different shapes to fit a range of fixtures including globe lamps, flood-
lights and candelabras. Special CFLs are now available for use with dimmer
switches, timers, outdoor cold weather applications, and recessed spot lights.
Since CFLs contain minute amounts of mercury, they should not be disposed
of in household trash. Please take spent CFLs to any Home Depot store, se-
lected Ikea stores, or you local household hazardous waste site.
For more information on CFLs, go to www.EnergyStar.gov/cfl.

would promote the identity of
the city.
Last week, Sandy Von
Staden, a member of the East
Community Redevelopment
Advisor board, or East CRA,
argued that the city should un-
derstand the theme and use it.
At that meeting, commis-
sioners were poised to hire a
consultant firm to consider an-
other theme. The cost would
have been near $50,000. The
measure failed by a majority
vote.
"We plan and plan and
then do nothing," says Von
Staden, who says that's one
reason Pompano Beach rede-
velopment is stymied.
"We never get past the
planning stage," she adds.
She blames the commission
saying that new people get in
and want to implement their
own ideas.
"We've already figured
this one out; let's do it,"
she says. "Cities who know
who they are, are successful.
We have wonderful natural
resources, and we're named
after a fish," she says. "We
can have our little niche of the
tourism market by building on
our strengths."
Vice Mayor George
Brummer admits he's not "en-
amored" with the Maritime
theme.
"My wish is to make the
beach area a draw. We need


construction there to bring
revenue and enhance business
and increase sales tax reve-
nues. What will draw people?
Will the old time Maritime
bring them?" he asked.
Commissioner Rex
Hardin agrees that commis-
sioners have the same goals
as Brummer outlined. "But
we differ when it comes to the
theme of Old Florida Mari-
time," Hardin said. "I think
it's attractive, and it fits with
the city. I don't think the type
of architecture will deter-
mine whether or not our city
becomes a destination."
Hardin added that the
theme isn't what makes
people come to a place.
"Streetscapes, pier develop-
ment, green space and side-
walk dining are what make
us a destination, not New
Age, South Beach Art Deco
or Maritime. The people have
had the input. It was commu-
nity driven and inspired, and
it led to these AOD guide-
lines. We are redeveloping.
We have to deal with what
we have now. Miami started
with Art Deco because they
already had it."
The Old Florida Maritime
theme, according to Robin
Bird, zoning director "ties the
city to its roots." Bird gave
examples of buildings that
had already used the theme,
including Houston's Restau-
rant, HSB Bank, Bispo's Cel-
lar, CVS Pharmacy and some
recently built town homes.
The Old Florida Mari-
time theme includes adding


elements that reflect Pompano
Beach's ties to fishing and the
ocean such as tin roofs, nauti-
cal lighting fixtures, wider
sidewalks, outside dining and
porch overhangs to produce
shade. The AOD theme also
encourages pedestrian friend-
ly sidewalks.
Commissioner Barry
Dockswell placed his vote


with the Maritime idea. "We
are a homey, middle class
town, named for a fish. We
are known for our Seafood
Festival, Fishing Rodeo and
fishing fleet," he said. "
Mayor Lamar Fisher
added that changing the theme
would create a hodgepodge,
and architectural designs
would not make a differ-
ence in drawing people to the


beach." Pompano Beach is in
the process of negotiating a
lease for the development of
a new restaurant at the city's
pier, construction of a new
lift station, a new fire station
and a new beach library and
civic center. All structures
fall within the AOD which
includes the Old Florida Mari-
time theme.

Dr. Michael Gilliam offers full service dentistry

plus age reversing facial cosmetic procedures


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN WRITER
Dr. Michael Gilliam has a truly
twenty first century practice that deals
not only with general and restorative
dentistry, but also the newest innova-
tions in cosmetic corrections around
the mouth. "We handle function and
appearance," he says, With an office
staff of six including hygienists and
clinical assistants, we use state of the
art sterilization, digital exrays and
laser diagnostics in our comfortable,
recently renovated offices."
Located at 2700 NE 14 St. Cause-
way in Pompano Beach since 1990,
Dr. Gilliam came to South Florida
in1986 after graduating from Emery
University in Atlanta in the top 10
percent of his class.
With a friendly personality and an
easy Southern drawl, he describes his
practice as intimate and relationship
based. For over 20 years, I've made it
a point to treat one patient at a time."
He had finished working on John
Firestone who said, "I've been Dr.
Gillian's patient for 10 years and have
found him to be responsive, available
and always competent in handling all
of my dental problems."
Dentistry has changed radically
over the years. Gilliam defines his
2009 practice as about half reconstruc-
tion and half general.
"I now do tons of implant restora-
tion," he explains, "taking over after
the surgical procedure. However,
because I have had three years of post
doctoral surgical training, I could
do the surgery myself. I choose not
to, but I'm in a position to hold my

surgeon associates to a high level of
accountability and precision which
enhances the result for the patient. I
have patients from 17 to 86 who have
or are having implants. It's the most
predictable restoration that we can
provide with today's knowledge and
level of research and development. Of
course I also do white fillings, crowns,
bridges and dentures."
Cosmetic Dentistry
Teeth whitening, a highly ad-
vertised procedure, can be achieved
according to Dr. Gilliam, through mul-
tiple laser systems or the conventional


tray bleaching.
A permanent way to enhance teeth
and a smile is to improve the shape,
color, contour of the teeth by apply-
ing porcelain laminate veneers. A thin
sheet of porcelain is fashioned to fit
over the facings of a patient's natural
teeth. Gilliam says, "The buzz word
for this procedure is Lumineers, which
I do use, but not exclusively because
there are better solutions for certain
conditions."
This dentist is very excited by the
fact he can now even enhance the

PELICAN WRITER
It was 12 noon on Jan. 21,
2009, and all eyes were glued
to the Promethean board in
Mr. Philisaire's American
Government class at Blanche
Ely High School in Pom-
pano Beach. Students were
watching history take place as
Barack Obama took the oath
of office and became the 44th
President of the United States.
These seniors were unified
in their opinion of President

Obama. "I like the fact that
he's actually listening to the
people, and he's really paying
attention to what they need,"
said Rachel Kelly. "He's
really there to help make our
lives better and not to make a
lot of money off a war."
Though there were a few
whoops and hollers, for most
of the news coverage silence
prevailed until Barack Obama
was sworn in and then the
class applauded and cheered.
Lerhonda Henley's com-
ment summed up the feeling

in the class room best. "Any-
thing is possible," she said.
"Before it was like we gave
up on our country. He said
that people built this country
from the ground up so that we
would have faith and believe
in it again."
The new president inspired
some strong opinions.
"He really acknowledged
that there are problems. He
didn't just sweep them under
the rug," said Kelly. "He's
actually telling you for Global
Warming we're going to try
different fuels. For everything
else there's always a solution,
and he's going over them."
Henley and Kelly als
have hopes that Michele
Obama will make a good first
lady. "She supports Obama,
and that is going to make
him a great President because
he has her beside him," said
Henley.
Kelly is a little more
specific, saying, "She was
a hospital administrator so
she knows about the people
who are poor and can't afford
health care and that's one
of the biggest problems in
America today."

By Their Fruits,.a great source of fresh produce in

Pompano Beach at its store and at the Green Market


By MALCOLM McCLINTOCK
PELICAN WRITER


By Their Fruits
40-A W. McNab Rd.
Pompano Beach
Tel: (954) 461-7268

Are you tired of paying ex-
orbitant prices for non-ripened
fruits and vegetables at your
local grocery store?
Most of the produce we
purchase at the chain stores
is bought in bulk, picked
green and left to ripen during
warehousing and transporta-
tion. The result is a generally
dissatisfying mix of flavor-
less vegetables, rock hard
fruits and poor selection. To
my great surprise, "By their
Fruits" on McNab provides
produce at equal or lower
prices than the big boys but
with one exciting difference
it is absolutely farm fresh!
Several times a week,
Christy and Roque Cavazos
receive loads of tomatoes,
peaches, oranges, zucchini,
pears, onions, salads and
every other natural delight
you can imagine delivered to
their store. "We deal
directly with the farms
in the area. Every-
thing goes from the
field straight to our
shelves" says Christy,
a third generation
produce expert whose
family has been mak-
ing Pompano a healthier place
since the early 60's.
The store features resplen-
dent displays overflowing
with a veritable cornucopia of
earthly goodness. In addition,


"By their Fruits" has also in-
corporated new products into
their daily offerings. Daughter
Kerry and her husband Ryan
have developed popular lines
of salsas and hummus.
"I have a Greek girlfriend
who taught me the right
proportions for making hum-
mus. Ever since then I have
been creating new flavors that
people really seem to enjoy,"
says Kerry who now delivers
a substantial assortment of the
chick-pea classics. Moroc-
can spice, Cilantro/Jalapeno,
Lemon/Dill, Black Bean, Co-
conut Curry, Smoky Chipotle
-V & Lime, Roasted
Red Peppers &
Basil, Artichoke
and Kalamata Olive
n are some of the fan
favorites that make
each hummus a new
adventure.
She also sells
her novel con-
coctions at green markets
around South Florida. Look
for "Seely's Gourmet Gar-
den" next time you are at the
Pompano market on Saturday
mornings. All her creations as


well as multiple bean salads
and salsas are made fresh
in the store and taken to the
markets.
"By their Fruits" also
offers a great selection of
freshly squeezed Kennesaw
juices such as orange, apple
and tangerine. "We have very
high quality, but keep our
prices low" asserts Christy as
loyal customers line up to buy
their produce from this quaint
neighborhood store.
In addition, they offer an
exciting array of home-made
soups prepared by Hillary
Maybaum, an associate who
lovingly makes batches of
healthy potages on the premis-
es. Thai Coconut Cauliflower,
Cuban Black Bean, Gazpacho,
Butternut Squash, French Ra-
tatouille are just a few of the
delectable ready-to-eat dishes
that are on display.
For convenience, "By their
Fruits" also sells cheeses,
Florida grown coffee, flash
frozen seafood such as scal-
lops, fish and shrimp as well
as Ms. Petics premium sea-

Granted, Hooker is dealing
with less demanding problems
in this retirement village,
but he approaches volunteer
work with his usual gusto and
eagerness to do the job right
because he says, "My motto is
do the job as well as you can
and don't get frustrated by the
follow through."
Wrapping up this inter-
view, he said, "I'm so happy
to remain in one place and
enjoy it. I have made more
friends here than I've ever had
in my life. My career always
had me on the move, and
because my work was often
classified close friendships
were discouraged."

Audit


Continued from page 1
the persons involved should
be punished. I am not accus-
ing anyone. I just want to find
out the truth."
Burrie said if the initial
investigation warrants more
action she will ask for a fo-
rensic audit. "If we are going
to straighten this out, it's not
to make people happy, it's to
make things right."
Ortanique is a community
of 42 single-family homes in
Collier City and falls un-
der the auspices of the NW
Community Redevelopment
Agency. The homeowners
there have complained about
the quality of construction.
In some homes, in order to
correct a footprint that en-
croached on a drainage ease-
ment, the garages were built
five feet shorter than original-
ly drawn making them nearly
impossible to accommodate a
medium-size car.
As long ago as early last
summer, Mayor Lamar Fisher
toured the complex along with
then commission candidate
Woody Poitier. Noting the
construction defects, Fisher
said he asked City Manager
Keith Chadwell to suspend
work at the development for
60 days to give the devel-
oper time to fix the defects.
When the work was not halted
Fisher said, "I expressed my
disapproval from the dias. I
expected the problems to be
solved, and it was embarrass-
ing. I remember it vividly."


At a meeting held with
builder Daryl Simpson after
the 60 days had expired,
Lamar asked who was respon-
sible for the repairs.
"I am, and my company,"
Simpson said.
When the city failed to
address the issues then, some
residents appealed to NAACP
president, Willie Lawson,
who late last year demanded
answers regarding finances,
faulty construction and
delayed certificates of occu-
pancy.
When The Pelican re-
ported the story last year, city
officials claimed they had no
discretion in overseeing the
project.
But, the land upon which
the homes are constructed,
was purchased by the city and
given to the West CRA for the
development. In response to
who was responsible for the
building problems, Chadwell
wrote in a response to the city
commission the following:
The decision to respond to
any homeowner's concerns
for corrective action is solely
the responsibility of Simpson
Developers and the CEHDA.
The CEHDA, or Community
Economic Housing Develop-
ment Association, consists of
a group of six local non profit
groups who oversee the devel-.
opment, secure financing and
set the prices for the homes "
and property.
According to Fisher,
Chadwell has been providing
reports on Ortanique.
The most recent, distrib-
uted this week, responds
to questions from the NW


Community Redevelopment
Agency Advisory Board.
It addresses the problem
with the garages and Fisher
said seems to answer all the
board's questions.
The report also states that
the city has "no record" of
problems from the homeown-
ers with this project, despite
complaints that have been is-
sued through Lawson and the
request for a "suspension of
work" through the mayor.
Commissioner Poitier
remembers the tour of one of
Ortanique's troubled prop-
erties quite well. When he
got into office and realized
defects still existed, he was
told by other commissioners
that they were the contractor's
problem.
This week, both Poitier
and Fisher said they support
Burrie's request for an audit.
At Tuesday's CRA meet-
ing Vicente Thrower, a mem-
ber of the NW CRA Advisory
Board, preceded Burrie's
request for an investigation at
Ortanique.
A frequent critic of the
manner in which the NW
CRA operates is resident
Johnny Jones who said the
people's wishes in the North-
west area are not being heard.
Jones said he has seen danger-
ous conditions in the Orta-
nique homes and he has harsh
remarks for the commission.
"They don't have time to do
city business. Now they are
putting themselves over the
CRA."
At this point, the CRA is
operating without an ex-
ecutive officer. The city has


requested letters of interest
from persons or firms want-
ing the job. Deadline for those


submissions is March 16.

framework of a patient's den-
tal portrait into artistic
dentistry. He explains, "We
can volumize or fill the wrin-
kles that surround the mouth
or lips and even enlarge the
lip if desired. I can do this
procedure keeping a patient
completely comfortable."
He continues, "Because I
am so experienced in numb-


ing my patients which I do
all day, every day, it's only
logical that my ability with
a syringe would enhance my
ability to comfortably perform
the dermal procedure, Juve-
derm.
"This injectable gel is the
only HA filler that the FDA
approved to last one year.
And it often lasts longer,
helping to diminish the depth
of the nasolabial folds and
marionette lines which form
the parenthesis around one's


mouth from nose to chin. It's
also successful in diminish-
ing smoker's lines and chin
wrinkles. I took twice the
state required hours of train-
ing and have had nothing but
successful results"
"Juvederm uses all natural
material made by the hu-
man body," he adds. "By
replenishing areas with it, we
reverse the aging process. It's
the least expensive cosmetic
medical procedure avail-
able. The cost depends upon


the amount of material used.
We provide a free cosmetic
consult."
Barbara, who preferred to
not reveal her last name, was
thrilled with the result of her
Juvederm treatment. She said,
"The procedure was easy. I'm
really happy with the results. I
look so much younger."
Asked about Botox, Gil-
liam says, "Botox is a puri-
fied protein, made in a lab, to
relax the muscles and inhibit
frowning. It's FDA approved


for minimizing frown lines,
called the 11 s, between the
eyebrows. I provide Botox
injections which last three to
four months."
Dr. Gilliam encourages
any man or woman struggling
with aging signs to consider
some of the wonderful options
now available to fix which
was once unfixable.
Call 954-941-2412 for a
dental appointment or a free
cosmetic consultation.

MLK
Continued from page 1
The Bethune Cookman
College Gospel Choir per-
formed for the filled gymna-
sium, bringing many to their
feet. Several of the choir
members were former resi-
dents of Pompano Beach.
Mayor Lamar Fisher,
Commissioners Rex Hardin
and Woody Poitier were hon-
ored guests at the event.
Mohorn remembered E.
Pat Larkins, former mayor
and commissioner for District
4 who had been part of the
celebration for more than 20
years. Larkins is recovering


from brain surgery and has
since resigned his seat at city
hall.
"It was a good" celebration.
The participation from the
community was good," said
Poitier who like most people
at the event was anticipat-
ing the following day of the
inauguration of the country's
first Black president and con-
sidering that event as another
tribute to King.
Later Poitier said, "Just
watching [the presidential
inauguration] yesterday, you
couldn't help but swell up
with joy. My wife cried, and I
turned away to wipe my eyes.
The was the most positive


Jasmine Vann
[speech] we have ever gotten.
Everybody is ready to make
the sacrifice. I have never
seen people more excited.
You could see that spilling
over into MLK Day. It was
almost like the dream was
Obama."
This was a great event and
it had added significance with
what was happening in Wash-


ington. What an amazing time
we live in," said Hardin. "The
44th president just right after
MLK Day. The MLK com-
mittee did a great job. I was
proud to be there and to walk
in the parade."
The steering committee for
the MLK celebration consists
of Joyce Jackson, president;
Elizabeth Massey, secretary;
