LBTS Chamber

to get $20,000 for

tourist center
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
The Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Cham-
ber of Commerce will receive $20,000
from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Con-
vention Center/Visitors Bureau thanks
to the efforts of Broward County Vice
Mayor Ken Keechl.
Keechl said he recently visited the
Welcome Center "and was pleased to
learn the Welcome Center is a ben-
efit to all of the coastal cities within
the district and throughout Broward
County."
He met with Nicki Grossman, direc-
tor of the Convention Center/Visi-
tors Bureau, who agreed to provide
$20,000. Keechl will present the check
to the chamber n March 10.
"Perhaps (the Chamber) should ask
for help on a yearly basis from the
county," Commissioner Birute Clottey
said.

Pelican over Pompano The pelican is the state bird of Louisiana, and one of the reasons that led
to the name of this newspaper. Owner and publisher, Anne Siren chose the name to remember her
many good years in New Orleans. Pelicans used to grace the numerous trees at the Hillsboro Inlet
until the trees were removed to make way for a condominium. Thanks to photographer T.J. Lyon
who reminds us that the pelican still reigns in Pompano Beach.


Disabled ATV in LBTS raises

questions of transparency
Vice mayor withholds information regarding mishap


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
One of the Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment's new $20,000 ATVs, is in for
repairs after the vehicle was appar-
ently damaged from being driven on
the beach at a high rate of speed.
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Commis-
sioner Stuart Dodd reported that news
at the commission's recent infor-
mal roundtable meeting. He said he
researched the matter himself after he
wasn't satisfied with the VFD chief's


replies to his questions at an earlier
commission meeting.
Dodd discovered that Vice Mayor
Jerry Mclntee, also the VFD deputy
fire chief, authorized and approved the
repair.
The invoice for repairs, dated Jan.
22, five days before the commission
meeting when Dodd first raised the is-
sue, showed "Jerry McAphee" verbal-
ly placed the order. The invoice lists
Mclntee's cell number by the name. It

perfect complement to this
beach feast.
Guy Contrada, gen-
eral manager of Aruba Beach
Caf6, 1 Commercial Blvd.,


chair the Taste of the Beach
2009 for the fourth year.
"It's just the best," says
Contrada. "This year we have

Blimp and the ever-popu-
lar Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

by Rossi Jewelers.
The $35 ticket will get
guests under the tent at El

drink their fill.
Steel drums, played by


s,


and the Rick Bauer Band, a
local favorite, will provide
music under the tent.

LBTS free community bus endangered

because of low rider participation


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Use it or lose it.
That's the message Bro-
ward County is sending Lau-
derdale-By-The-Sea residents
regarding the town's commu-
nity bus, the Pelican Hopper,
according to Town Manager
Esther Colon. _
Colon alerted commis-


sioners to the situation in a
memo this month, noting,
"The ridership for the com-
munity bus has remained sin-
gle digit since the beginning
of the year. Please note that if
ridership does not increase to
at least 11 or more riders, the
grant proceeds will be allo-
cated to another municipality
that has a greater need."


Ridership is calculated in
passengers per revenue hour,
and Colon referred to 11 or
more passengers per hour.
The average for the whole
system is 12 passengers per
revenue hour, according to
Irvin Minney, community
transit officer with Broward

Penny pinching voters may force tighter election spending


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
In keeping with the eco-
nomic recession, candidates
in Deerfield Beach may have
to do more outreach with less
money as they move into the
last three weeks of the cam-
paign. Collections are down
dramatically from the last
election in 2005 when a suc-
cessful mayor's race cost Al
Capellini $60,000.
As of January 30, Dist.
4 candidate Gary Lother
had the biggest war chest,
a little more than $14,000,
with many of his $500 con-
tributors associated with the
building industry. Former
Hillsboro Beach Vice Mayor


Rick McCarty, Dr. Richard
Paley, Newport Center Plaza,
Domani Motors, Mancini
Construction and Richard
Mancini equipment Co., JB's
Restaurant and the Hillsboro
Club are among those giving
Lother the maximum amount.
Smaller donors include build-
ers Sam and Nathan Butters
and Hillsboro Beach mayor,
Carmen McGarry.
Bill Ganz, Lother's op-
ponent, has reported just
under $5,000 with major gifts
from attorneys Adler, Toler
and Adler, Ganz Plumbing,
and Suzy Pearce Financial
Services.
Mayoral candidate Peggy
Noland leads her opponents in
donations, $10,800 at the last


report. The law firm of Ruden,
McClosky gave her $1,500
via three entities, developer
Mike O'Leary is responsible
for $1,000, JB's Restaurant
and its owner John Boyle,
another $1,000.
Jean Robb, also a candi-
date for mayor, has banked
more money, $13,402, but
$10,000 of it has come from
her own pocketbook.
Al Capellini shows
$5,200 in his campaign ac-
count with JB's Restaurant
and his partner Crain En-
gineering among the large
contributors.
Don Cleveland has raised
just over $3,000, $500 from
MPR-Fintra, Inc.
C. Don Peterson shows
$1,660 in his account, two
$500 contributions from Edd
Con of Con Air Jet Sales and
$500 from 1700 FRM LLC


I


Business Consultants.
Caryl Berner shows only
her own $300 contribution.
In District 1, incumbent
Pam Militello and challenger
Joe Miller are running about
even. Miller's $6,690 bank
account shows three $500
contributions from members
of the David Eller family,
$500 from JB's Restaurant,
$500 from the HydroSweep
Company. Militello's financial
support comes chiefly from
members of the Original Save
Our Beach organization, plus
a $250 gift from County Prop-
erty Appraiser Lori Parrish
totaling $6,200.
Incumbent Marty Popel-
sky leads the fundraising in
District 3 and shows three
$500 contributions from

of USA Parking and the

contributions from the owners

As men age, certain
changes can happen to the
body. One of these is Benign
Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH
or enlarged prostate, which
is very common in men over
40. As the prostate grows it
puts pressure on the urethra,
causing changes in urination
frequency and urges. Dr.
Jeffrey Marks will present an
educational seminar on BPH,
at NE Focal Point, 227 NW 2
St., Deerfield Beach, Tuesday,
Feb. 24, from noon to 1 p.m.
The seminar will cover
information on the signs and
symptoms of BPH, long term
effects if untreated and treat-
ment information.

ATV


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

also says "Lacemere Ma-
cAphee" ordered the repairs,
and the bill should be sent to
the fire station in LBTS.
The estimate says, "The
yoke is broken in half. It
appears as if the equipment
was jammed into gear while
driving at a high rate of speed
without coming to a complete
stop. Total cost of repairs:
$420.06."
Dodd first asked VFD
Chief Robert Perkins if the
ATVs were working at the
Jan. 27 commission meeting.
Perkins responded, "One
is down and in the shop. One
of the gears doesn't work and
doesn't allow it to run. It just
stopped."
"Jerry, you sat next to me
(on the dais) and you knew
the details," Dodd said to
McIntee at the Feb. 3 round-
table session. When Dodd
first questioned the fire chief,
McIntee make no comment
regarding the ATV at that
meeting.
The instruction manual
for the Polaris Ranger ATVV
says to stop the vehicle before


changing gear, Dodd said.
The driver is instructed not to
shift while moving or idling
or damage to the transmission
can result. A small sign on the
dashboard of the VFD vehicle
gives the same instructions.
"The mayor and I didn't
get satisfactory answers [at
the Jan. 27 commission meet-
ing.] I believe driver error
caused the breakdown," Dodd
said. "We need a larger notice
for the dashboard. We all
know stuff happens. I'm look-
ing for a proper response."
Dodd was not happy with
the chief's curt answers to his
questioning.
"The biggest problem is
this casts doubt on the VFD,"
Dodd said.
Commissioner Birute
Clottey asked, "Who pays
the bill?" The answer was the
VFD.
"This upsets me, Com-
missioner Dodd," Commis-
sioner Jim Silverstone, a
member of the VFD, said.
"You take the word of those
fixing this rather than the
VFD. [The driver] said it got
stuck on the beach."
"This is such picky little
stuff," McIntee said. "We
(the town) have a brand new
sweeper, $30,000 to $40,000.

It broke down. Did you check
on that?" he asked Dodd.
"You are selectively picking
on the VFD. [The ATV] is
broken; we're getting it fixed.
We want it back in service as
fast as possible. He [Dodd]
was accusing me of cover-
ing something up. There's no
cover-up here."
Clottey said the VFD is
a vendor, and the town pays
them a certain amount of
money. "How they spend it is
their business. We don't look
at every other vendor like
this. Do we do this to Waste
Management?"
"Here [with the VFD] we
own the vehicles. It's part of
the contract to maintain the
vehicles," Mayor Roseann
Minnet said.
"I'm asking for a level of
professionalism I'm not sure
we have the staff to achieve,"
Dodd said.

again Jan. 28 to complete the
Jan. 27 agenda, Dodd was first
with commissioner comments.
He read a long list of concerns
and ended each with "Yes, I
have a problem with that.
"When I hear the ATV
is broken and out of action,

and I get told 'routine mainte-
nance' and not even the town
manager knows about it, that
doesn't sit well with me, so
yes, I have a problem with
that," he said.
Mclntee responded that
the ATV is in the shop, and
the VFD pays for repairs out
of its budget. "Things break
down. The vehicle is near wa-
ter and in the dirt, and it went
down. To attack the fire chief,
I don't know where you're
going."
Dodd said from informa-
tion he obtained from the
manufacturer and distributor,
"It's 99 percent certain that
at some stage in the past, [the
vehicle] was abused. That's
the only way to destroy the
yoke," he said.
He recommended the
VFD put a slightly bigger
sign on the dash indicating the
driver must select the appro-
priate ratio for the duration of
the drive.
"I really wasn't trying to
seek a comeback on a driver.
[The ATV] could have been
severely damaged at any time
in the last three months," he
said.

Pompano Beach Postcards exhibit

set for Feb. 18 at Hood Center
One of the best views we have of a community's past is through picture
postcards. Landmark sites, hotels and restaurants, as well as scenic views are
captured on these small, inexpensive mementos.
Merrill Pridemore, a long-time Pompano Beach resident and deltiologist
(that being the formal name in the U.S. for a postcard collector) has agreed to
share his unsurpassed collection of Pompano postcards at the Pompano Beach
Historical Society's monthly meeting on February 18, 7 p.m., at the Dick and
Miriam Hood Center, 217 NE 4th Avenue.
Although there are thousands of postcards depicting Pompano Beach, be-
cause the town got a late start as a tourist destination most date from the 1940s
to the present. There are a number of relatively rare postcards from earlier
decades which will be displayed and discussed.
In addition to viewing the cards, there will be an opportunity to talk about
the buildings and scenes depicted on the postcards.
You won't want to miss this entertaining program. We're sure that many
of the postcards will jog your memory of bygone days (and if they don't, then
you'll learn something new about Pompano's history

Jogger

tripped up on

renovations
To the editor,
A story in last week's Pelican
showed photos of two Fitness Trails:
#1 The award-winning Giusti Heart
Parcours in Oakland Park (Giusti
Heart won the 2008 New Times Bro-
ward-Palm Beach "Best of" award for
Best Jogging Trail), and #2 Commu-
nity Park in Pompano Beach, where
the city has recently installed 4x4
wooden borders on the walking/jog-
ging trail. Apparently the two photos
used by the Pelican were to show that
an "open" trail without borders (Oak-
land Park) is less attractive than a trail
bordered by 4x4s (Pompano Beach).
I think a natural open trail is far
more attractive than one boxed in.
Aesthetic issues aside, there are
safety issues: There is concern that
tripping over the 4x4s and taking a
fall could injure people. The Com-
munity Park track is approximately
8-feet wide and is considered to be
just two lanes; therefore, if two people
are walking together, there is now no
room to pass without hopping back
and forth over the borders. Raised
borders are against athletic track
guidelines according to the Ameri-
can Sports Builders' Association, or
ASBA. According to terminology used
by the National Recreation and Parks
Association a "Fitness Trail" is a trail
"designed specifically for exercise,
such as walking or running. They are
typically to be located within a park
and are often a loop with mileage
markers. The minimum standard is
8-feet wide."
In addition to Giusti Heart, Oak-
land Park has a smaller gravel Fitness
Trail at Cherry Creek and Fort Lau-
derdale has a beautiful 1.3-mile gravel
Fitness Trail at Holiday Park. These
other nearby cities seem to have no
issues with the appearance or mainte-
nance of their open trails, which have
Continued on page 7

$80,000 is waste

of funds for jog

borders

To the editor,
I have written letters to the mayor
and the city commissioners concern-
ing the wooden borders that are now
installed on the track at Community
Park in Pompano Beach. The wooden
borders are a hazard to runners and
should never have been installed. They
cost the city approximately $80,000
and were not recommended by those
of us that use the track.
Pompano Beach is flagrantly using
our tax dollars on unwanted projects
for the benefit of no one, while cutting
services that are sorely needed by the
community.
Acts such as these, give the ap-
pearance that there is indeed "PROS-
PERITY IN POMPANO BEACH."

Feb. 21 when artists will be present to

Term limits

I was happy to read in The Pelican
that Hillsboro is going to vote for term
limitations for their commissioners. A
very smart move.
If we had term limits for our
elected Congressmen and Senators in
Washington DC, our country would
not be in trouble financially as it is
now.
We are not the cause of GM,
Chrysler and Ford going bankrupt.
Our aged Congress and Senate are the
cause and with term limitations, this
would not have happened. If Deerfield
Beach had term limits they would not
'have their mayor suspended by the
governor.

the same stone surface as the one in Community Park.
Already a Community Park jogger has tripped and fallen
over the new 3-inch-high borders while trying to pass walkers.
While raised borders may be appropriate on pedestrian walk-
ways and garden paths, I do not think they belong on a walk-
ing/jogging trail.
For reasons of public safety, I hope Pompano Beach will
reconsider and remove the raised borders from the Fitness Trail
in Community Park.

Pompano pioneer Earl Johns was an early

master at farming South Florida land


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Earl Johns, 90, a Pom-
pano pioneer and early farmer
in Broward and Palm Beach
counties, passed away this
week.
Earl was a product of
some of the first pioneers
in Florida. His own ances-
tors were tobacco and cotton
farmers in North Carolina
until their fields of income fell
victims to the Boll Weevil that
infested the Southern crops in
the 1800s.
That crisis drew the
Johns family to North Florida
where, as their son, Joe, says,
"They lived hand to mouth.
My grandmother would wake
up and start cooking before
the sun came up. Then she


went to the fields with my
grandfather and all the chil-
dren to work. After that, she
came back, took care of the
livestock, cooked dinner and
they all went to bed. The next
day, it started all over again."
Carl Johnson, a fellow
pioneer, recalls his friend,
Earl, whom he knew for many
years.


"At the turn of the century,
Earl's father and other pio-
neers had to look for a better
way to make a living. My
granddaddy, J.W. Umstead
came down and established
himself as a farmer. Joseph
and Eva Johns, Earl's daddy,
were hard-working people. He

Frank Congemi, investment advisor does free

consultations to determine client needs and goals


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
With an economy seem-
ingly in a free fall, what does
an investor advisor suggest?
Frank Congemi admits, "It's
a real challenge with the
television media constantly
over stimulating the viewer
with negative information. I
overcome this challenge with
education. I call attention to
options and choices of proven,
verifiable companies. I only
recommend products that
will perform consistently and
therefore make a client confi-
dent in the choices we make
together."
Congemi has been a regis-
tered representative for 23
years including his residence
in South Florida since 1993,
His Deerfield Beach office
is at 510 SE 8 Ave. next to
the American Legion Lodge
162. He says, "I do seminars
for groups. In fact, I just did
one for the Women's Club at
the Lighthouse Point Yacht
and Tennis Club. If people
attending want to find out
more, they can call me. We do
not pressure members of the
audience, and we do not do
'product specific' seminars."
He offers a lot of advice
to Pelican readers.
1. There is no free lunch.
Any'lunch or dinner seminar
is a hook to sell you a prod-
uct. Our approach is education
and information.
2. We encourage people to
catch "Live rich forever and
ever" with Ed Slott which
shows regularly on PBS sta-
tions. Ed is a well recognized
and often quoted CPA. We
like his show because it's
geared to retirement planning
and income investments. He

Frank Cin~ernu %traps up a -roup eminar :iln icsrrnentsHe ;a\;


deals with investment, taxes
and legacy planning. He has
trained me, and I am one of
his recommended advisors.
3. Choose an advisor with
whom you are comfortable. In
our case, my son who is also
a licensed advisor, and I do
free consultations to establish
a comfort zone for the client
and us.
One of Congemi's clients
is Elaine Thomas, a retired
school vice principal from
Miami, who says, "I've used
Frank as my financial advi-
sor since 1993. I'm thrilled
with the results of his advice.
We've already survived a
few valleys. I'm sure we will
come out of this one. I follow
his lead. I'm so confident in
him that I have recommended
Frank to my best friends."


4. Although there are
thousands of products avail-
able, we favor about a dozen
different ones. We have
mutual funds, variable and
fixed annuities with guaran-
teed withdrawal and income
benefits.
These become the ve-
hicles for custom retirement
and income planning. Our
plans must meet the approval
of the compliance department
of our firms which are Linsco
Private Ledger which owns
and operates Mutual Service
Corporation of West Palm
Beach, a 30 year old firm
which accommodates Inde-
pendent Investment Advisors
which I am.
5. We are required to find
out a client's needs and goals
through dialogue. We can and


do work with attorneys on
guardianships, trusts and spe-
cial needs trusts. Clearly we
are prepared to do much more
for a client than recommend a
product.
Ann Johnston and her
husband have used Congemi's
services since 1991. Ann
says, "We're very pleased
with Frank because he contin-
ues to update and change our
portfolio as our needs change.
When we started with him our
goals were different than they
are now. My husband is in
the yacht finance business and
I'm a teacher. Now we are
investing with retirement in

proposed action. Fisher then
voted against firing Chadwell.
But Chadwell's tenure is
still not certain. There were
more questions about pursu-
ing the issue.
Hardin preceded his mo-
tion to fire by explaining his
reasons. "I am not satisfied
with the performance of the
city manager," he said. "The
citizens are not being served
well. Personally I like him,
but things haven't been done
that I have asked him to do.


When the community says
something should happen, it

Vice Mayor George
Brummer, who voted against
the action said he wanted to
see a "bill of particulars," a
detailed list of reasons that led
to the action.
Hardin did not agree with
the idea. "In all due respect,
Vice Mayor," he said. "I don't
want to give a bill of particu-
lars. If you think he's doing a
good job, vote against it."
The action failed due to
the tie vote, which by charter
rules results in no action on
the motion.

porter, Commissioner Wood-
row Poitier, spoke to The
Pelican the following day.
"I don't think it's time
for Mr. Chadwell to go," said
Poitier. "He's been doing
better, and he's taking care of
some stuff on my side of the
tracks. I'm extremely happy
about that."
Poitier referred to get-
ting more repairs that had
been overlooked for a long
time. He said the District 4
sidewalks were getting fixed,
and "programs that had been
on hold for a long time" were
now moving along.
"Now. is not the time,"
continued Poitier. "They


[commissioners] never said
what the complaint was. The
only legitimate complaint was
giving [Robert] Frank a sever-
ance package."
Frank, former director for
the city's Community Rede-
velopment Agencies, or CRA,
was dismissed late last year.
Chadwell authorized a
severance package of $24,600
equal to three months salary.
"We are in a financial
clutch. We would have to start
all over again," said Poitier.
"And it takes about two good
years to learn. He's getting his
people in place. Now we're
getting rid of him? No. Now
is not the time,"

Six candidates seek to wield the gavel in Deerfield Beach


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Three familiar names
and three new ones will be
on Deerfield's mayoral ballot
Tuesday, March 10, in an.
election that could change all
the faces on the dais. In the
race for mayor is Al Capel-
lini, who had expected to run


as the incumbent, but who
was removed by the gover-
nor after being charged with
official misconduct; former
mayor Jean Robb, former
Dist. 1 Commissioner Peggy
Noland, career lobbyist Don
Cleveland, civic activist Ca-
ryl Berner and salesman Don
Peterson.
With all four commis-


sion seats on the ballot there
is the potential that, with the
exception of District 2, an
entirely new board will be
seated.
Running in District 1 is
incumbent Pam Militello and
businessman Joe Miller.
In District 3, incumbent
Marty Popelsky, Century
Village Master Management


President Donna Capobianco
and realtor/broker Juran-
dir Albuquerque are on the
ticket.
In District-4, former fire
chief Gary Lother and com-
munity leader Bill Ganz seek
the seat.
Mayor Sylvia Poitier's
District 2 seat is unopposed.
This week, The Pelican


is running profiles of all six
mayoral candidates and their
reasons for running, in their
own words. Next week, the
same format will be used to
introduce the commission
candidates. On Feb.27, the
Pelican Editorial Board will
endorse a candidate in each
race.

Statement
L Being involved in Deerfield Beach politics for the past five years as an
activist is why I am running for mayor. I have been able to get policies
revamped and ordinances changed. I have done this through research, te-
nacity and the law. While one issue has been unpopular, I believe the change in
administration on our Federal level is in keeping with my views. I am proactive
and not reactive. I am progressive. I will be a full time mayor and will not take
an increase in salary. Bad economic times demand strong leadership. I plan to
advocate for those that cannot advocate for themselves. Civil debate and com-
munication is key. I would like to see Deerfield be ethical, inclusive and fiscally
strong.
If elected, I will

protect the health, welfare and safety of our residents and to make gov-
ernment more efficient and responsible. I have 20 years on the com-
mission, 16 as mayor. I have increased police coverage and added personnel to
fire protection services. I signed the 10-year contract with BSO to provide law

to remain in a development area for improvements there, without tax increases.
I reworked Westside Park to provide new ball fields and recreational facilities. I

Statement
L After 12 years as commissioner of District 1, I felt my work in the city
was done. Unfortunate incidents happened and things changed. As a
three-term commissioner, I was saddened by what had happened to our
city. First, one of the sitting commissioners resigned from office after charges
. were brought against him. Then, the State Attorney's Office brought charges
against the mayor, and he was suspended by the governor.
At that time, several residents and business owners asked that I consider
running for mayor. When my daughters came home for Christmas break, we
sat down, along with my son and discussed it. The family vote came in with a
resounding, "Go for it, Mom!"
I decided I had to use my years of knowledge of city government to help
run the city and unite.the commission. The city needs a vision for the future
and an end to the bickering. The commission needs to work for all the citizens
and employees of the city.
If elected, I will:
Return the good reputation Deerfield Beach
Institute a workshop retreat for new commissioners, encourage more com-
munity participation and bridge gap between the Chamber and city officials.
Make sure banks are responsible for foreclosed property and enforce lo-
cal codes to protect surrounding properties. Protect the beach as an important
resource - -"I'm not afraid to knock on doors."

Transit, program supervisor.
The current requirement to
qualify for county funding
for the program is at least 7.1
passengers per revenue hour.
LBTS, for October to Decem-
ber 2008, had nine passengers
per revenue hour.
Minney said while 7.1 is
the required number for now,


that could increase, given
economic conditions.
"The community buses are
a very popular program, and
we look forward to continuing
the program," Minney said.
"We hate to lose cities."
But county budgets are de-
creasing yearly, and revenues
are not what they used to be,
he added. The county reduced
routes last year in several cit-
ies, including Deerfield Beach
and Lighthouse Point, because


they weren't meeting the
required criteria.
The Lighthouse Point City
Commission recently decided
to take over running the pro-
gram with the county provid-
ing the bus.
Cost of the community bus
program in LBTS for 2009
is $60,563. The county funds
$20 per revenue hour, and the
town provides the rest.
The $65,000 bus is leased
to the town for $10 a year.
Representatives of all
Broward municipalities were
recently invited to a meeting
to determine if they could
develop a fare policy in order
to save the buses. Most of
the cities, including LBTS,
Lighthouse Point, Pompano
Beach and Deerfield Beach,
provide the bus service for
free. Oakland Park charges 25
cents per rider.
New agreements with the
cities were supposed to start
Oct. 1, at the start of the fiscal
year, but two extensions have


been granted while county
officials try to get informa-
tion from the Federal Transit
Administration and develop a
new policy.
LBTS Mayor Roseann
Minnet and the LBTS Cham-
ber of Commerce sent out
an email alert this month
about the possibility of losing
the bus if ridership doesn't
increase. Minnet rode the bus
and made the rounds of con-
dominiums over the weekend
to drum up support and urge
people to take the bus.
"It's a necessity for the
community, especially for
the elderly and those who
can't get around," Minnet
said. "And it's a great way to
reduce the carbon footprint.
We have to get used to not go-
ing into the car. We can walk
to Publix or take our bikes or
take the Pelican Hopper."
The 20-passenger bus
takes 45 minutes to make a
run from the Publix store at
the Village Shopping Center


in Sea Ranch Lakes south
along A1A to Gait Ocean
Mile and then heads north to
Terra Mar Island and returns
to Publix.
Minnet said residents can
reduce the amount of carbon
emissions going into the earth
by reducing the number of
cars on the road. She says it's
important for the future of the
town.
"Our visitors love it," said
Judy Swaggerty, executive di-
rector of the LBTS Chamber.
"They think it's the greatest
thing since ice cream because
it's free and it's wheelchair
accessible."
The community bus ser-
vice is free to residents and
tourists. Riders who make
connections to other Broward
County Transit routes must
pay the appropriate bus fare.

tions, go to www.lauderdale-
bythesea-fl.gov, or call the
chamber at 954-776-1000.

Pink Church to offer
traditional Fat Tuesday meal
The First Presbyterian Church, or Pink Church, 2331 NE 26
St., Pompano Beach, will celebrate Shrove [Fat] Tuesday with
two pancake breakfasts for the community. The meals will take
place on Feb. 24 from 6:30 to 9 a.m. and from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
The event will be free with a goodwill offering accepted.
The meal will include the traditional Shrove Tuesday fare of
pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice.
Following the early tradition of this meal, Christians were
not allowed to eat any form of meat, butter, eggs or milk during
the 40 days of Lent which begins on Ash Wednesday, the day
after Fat Tuesday. That led to the pancake tradition.
Fat Tuesday is celebrated as Mardi Gras in many countries
and in New Orleans where the day requires all Christians to con-
fess their sins in preparation for Lent..
For information on the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Breakfast,
call 954-941-2308.

everything fresh each day,
including our French fries."
In fact, at their current pace,
Borris projects that they will
soon be peeling and slicing
nearly 10,000 pounds of fresh
Idaho potatoes a week! "We
use only Canola oil with zero
percent trans fats and zero
percent cholesterol" he says,
with the concern of a man
who has the health of his 4
daughters on his mind.
This impeccably clean
restaurant also has a few
surprises up its sleeve. The
fries can be purchased plain
or smothered in sauce and
cheese to create what is
known as a poutine a French
Canadian specialty that is
hugely popular at home and
abroad.
This dish involves a healthy
portion of fresh fries sprinkled
with copious amotints of high
quality curd cheddar cheese
from Wisconsin. The whole
plate is then drenched in a


thick and flavorful gravy
exclusively imported from
1 Canada.
There are few dishes
more rewarding than
a good poutine. If you
have had one before,
then you know what I
am talking about. If you
have not, then Home
Burger USA can show
you what you have been
missing.
But the delectable surprises
don't end there. This
restaurant is also an exclusive
importer of another awe-
inspiring taste sensation:
Montreal style smoked meat.
Similar to pastrami, smoked
meat is incredibly flavorful
and tender but less greasy.
"We currently import about
2,000 pounds a month and
it looks like we will be
doubling that" says Borris, a
bit surprised that he will be
selling nearly 2 tons of the
stuff each month!
Home Burger USA also
has a master smoked-
meat craftsman on board.
Professional cutter, Georges,
has 25 years of experience
hand slicing the wonderfully
cured beef into perfect
sandwiches. Placed between
two slices of fresh rye
bread with a good dollop
of mustard, an authentic
Montreal style smoked
meat sandwich will evoke
happy memories to anyone


that has been to New York,
Philadelphia or anywhere else
in the Northeast.
For the more health
conscious, Home Burger
USA also offers large house
salads, Caesar salads and, an
outstanding chicken Caesar
where the poultry is marinated
for 48 hours before being
served.
Of note, Home Burger USA
is now open for breakfast
starting at 6 am. A complete
bacon and eggs platter or
pancakes or fruits or a quick
morning sandwich can be
obtained for the same price as
the chain restaurants. With 2
large flat screen TVs, it is a
great way to catch up on the
daily news while enjoying a
hearty morning repast.
Home Burger USA shares
the same parking lot as the
Publix, is fully wheelchair
accessible, accepts all
standard forms of payment
and is open every day from 6
am to 9 pm.
With all hot-dog,
hamburger, chicken burger
and smoke meat sandwich
meal deals under $10, Home
Burger USA is an ideal place
to satisfy a big appetite
without breaking the bank.

Candidates for Deerfield Beach Mayor
Continued from page 11

Don Peterson, 44

Personal -
Widowed with two school age children. Grew up in this area.
Returned here seven years ago
Education Florida State University, degree in political science ..
Professional Sales representative and trainer for pharmaceutical -
company for 14 years. Prior to that was a contract negotiator for Aetna
Life Insurance Co.
Civic Youth baseball coach for nine years, vice president of
homeowner's association, Beach Cleanup participant.
Statement
Over the past several years, property values have increased and
taxes have exploded. I will fight to get our millage and values reduced to right-size our as-
sessments. City government has had an insatiable appetite for tax dollars. Deerfield must
become more efficient with less. Any company that gouges the city will no longer do business
with us as long as I am mayor. Deerfield Beach has a lot to offer employers and I will aggressively
court business to relocate to our city with incentives. We must keep our local economy strong
and growing. I will look to improve beach and park systems. We need to be smart about growth
for business while considering increased parking pressure to allow more beach access. Deerfield
Beach deserves a real change. Let me be your voice in City Hall."
If elected I will:
Create a sense of community in Deerfield Beach.
Forge a strong relationship between city officials and the chamber of commerce.
Would hold monthly meetings in the voting districts.
Reduce waste and spending at city hall
Pursue business owners to come to Deerfield Beach.
"I would be a mayor you can speak to."


Jean Robb, 77

Personal "
Widow with 6 children, 12 grandchildren. Resident for 51 years.
Education -BS West Chester University, majors in government and
English with master's work Villanova University.
Professional Community Associate Manager's license, President -
Princeton Place Homeowner's Association 2000-2009, Deerfield Beach
Mayor 1980 -1993.
Civic Lifetime member of Women's Club, lifetime member Friends of the Library, member
St. Ambrose Catholic Church.
Statement
S I decided to run because Deerfield Beach has been in the headlines too much and for the
wrong reasons. I want to restore a degree of integrity to the city. People have lost confi-
dence in the government and the people who serve in government. I served 13 years, and
in that time no one was ever arrested, there was never scandal of any magnitude. Everyone worked
efficiently together to do the right thing for the city.
"Now in these economic times you cannot possibly think in terms of raising the ad valorum tax.
You have to find innovative ways to raise revenue. I would think one of those would be to send the
pier lease out for a bid. Pompano Beach is getting $300,000 a year, while our pier runs at a deficit.
I have a list of things where I think we could earn more money and not affect the tax rate.
"I have a Community Association Manager's license, so I know the problem with foreclosures
in multi-family units."
If elected, I will:
Balance the budget.
Eliminate sticker parking at the beach; more revenue in meters.
Fire the current city manager
Take fishing pier and beach cabanas out of budget and outsource both enterprises
More code enforcement especially in annexed areas
Require that candidates take no contributions from entities that might come before the city
commission.
"Private enterprise is always better than government."

and kept us well informed. I
particularly like the fact that
he treats me, a woman, with
the same respect he pays

5. Check out your advi-
sor and his firm by calling the

ernment regulatory agencies.
You want to be sure there are
no disciplinary charges on his
or her record.
6. Does the advisor charge
for a consultation? Congemi
believes a good advisor will
dispense a free consultation as
a community service.


7. Get a referral from
someone you respect and trust
such as a family member,
lawyer, accountant or busi-
ness mentor.
8. The main advantage of
having your investments with
a reliable investment advisor
is his or her knowledge of the
market on a daily basis and
willingness to keep you well
informed and invested.
9. Markets are like the
weather. Investors must have
confidence and patience.
For people who don't, there
are products that give fixed
returns. In retirement planning
for older people, a portfolio
will contain both fixed and
growth products.

LPL, Fidelity and more. My
job is to meet with members
of Congress and the Senate

Johns
Continued from page 7
came south from Suwan-
nee County to grow winter
vegetables. He was very suc-
cessful, and with every bit of
money he earned, he would
buy more land."
When Joseph Johns ar-
rived in Broward County, he,
Eva and the family, including
young Earl, lived in a camp.
Eventually, as Joseph suc-
ceeded, they built a home
at the intersection of Dixie
Highway and Commercial
Boulevard. That house was
destroyed in the 1926 hur-
ricane.
The pioneers fought the
mosquitoes, alligators and
snakes to build the winter
market.
Joe, Earl's son, remembers
some of the stories from his
father. "People don't know
some of the hard times of the
early farms," says Joe. "The
mosquitoes were so bad in
the evening, you just had to
go inside and lock the screen
doors. My father had to send
his livestock up north because
the insects were so thick, they
would breed in the noses of
the cattle and suffocate them."
Earl Johns followed in the
family farming tradition and
went on to become one of the
wealthiest farmers in Broward
and Palm Beach. His land
acquisitions were massive, but
he never let up on his ethic of
hard work.
He opened more farms
using dynamite to blow out ir-
rigation ditches. He continued
to prosper, planting beans,
squash and peppers.
Joe says his father passed
that work ethic on to him and
his siblings.
Merrill Pridemore, a friend
and pioneer remembered Earl.
"I've known him all my life.
He was a neighbor. He was a
quiet man, and he knew a lot
about farming."


Dan Hobby remembers Earl Johns


Picking
Tomatoes
with Earl
By Dan Hobby
POMPANO BEACH HISTORI-
CAL SOCIETY
The call came in the
early evening, and the
caller got right to the point:
"Dan, this is Earl Johns, do
you want to go pick toma-
toes tomorrow?"
Indeed I did, and so the
next morning I was knock-
ing on Earl's door at 7:30
a.m. He greeted me in his
usual garb: a faded pair of
overalls, a plaid shirt and
boots. His straw hat hung
by the back door.
After chatting over cups


F7 -&&,-


I


of coffee in the kitchen of his
modest house, we piled into
his aged pick-up truck and off
we went to the fields.
I knew that Earl had
been one of the area's larg-
est property-owners, and that
over the years he had sold
hundreds of acres of farmland
for commercial and residential
development, and had made
a pretty penny in the bargain,
but as we drove he let it be
known that he still held a
significant bit of land in South
Florida and that he was not in
a rush to sell.
Our journey north on
Lyons Road ended just past
Sample Road (the fact that
both of these thoroughfares
were named after pioneer
farmers was not lost on me,
although I do regret not ask-


I


5-


-ir


ing Earl about them). We
pulled off the road into a field
that was part of the 150 acres
or so that Earl owned there,
planted in rows and rows of
tomatoes.
After a few words with the
foreman, and a quick inspec-
tion of some hot peppers
growing alongside the "barn,"
Earl handed me a bucket and
we trudged over to find some
us some tomatoes.
It didn't take long before I
was sweating, my back began
to ache and sand was filling
my shoes. Although Earl was
in his late 80s, he was filling
up his buckets about twice
as fast as I was mine. There
was no idle talk now; this was
serious business. Still, I got
farther and farther behind.
When Earl mercifully


called an end to the harvest
and I displayed my meager
collection of tomatoes,
he was kind enough not
to make any disparaging
remarks. I suspect he was
thinking that it was for-
tunate I didn't depend on
field work for a living. We
combined our pickings and
he gave the tomatoes to
me to take and sell at the
Green Market.
That experience gave
me an insight into Pompa-
no's agricultural heritage
that could not be gleaned
from a book. It also gave
me an added appreciation
for those who had toiled
in the fields, season after
season, and for those who,
like Earl Johns, were loath
to give it up.

22 The Pelican


Lobster house
Continued from page 1
Tuesday night, City Commis-
sioner Pam Militello praised
the project, but at least one
business owner was dis-
tressed.
The owner of the Tipper-
ary Pub said parking spaces
for his business were blocked
off for three weeks while con-
tractors worked on the Station
House. At one point, the work
caused a sewer gas leak which
affected his business. "It's a
beautiful restaurant, but we
need their cooperation," he
said.
Wayne Ferrell, architect on


the project, said a large area
was cordoned off to prevent
injuries to passers-by. He as-
sured the commission that the
problem has been resolved.
Jankun has operated Sta-
tion House in Lantana for 16
years and said he may sell
more lobsters than any res-
taurant in Florida in season
anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000
pounds a week. Available to
Jankun and other Cove build-
ing owners is facade funding
of $10,000 in Community Re-
development Agency funds.
Jankun said h as not yet
applied for the funding.
Last week commissioners
approved a setback variance
for the new restaurant as well

as the ordinance implement-
ing the Cove Overlay Dis-
trict. The ordinance requires
business and building owners
to follow a Key West look
when making exterior chang-
es and to conform to the new
signage after a period of five
years.
The plans for Phase I of
the Cove redesign are being
drawn now by engineers
Keith & Associates, a Pom-
pano Beach company.
Initially, the parking lot


will be reconfigured, green
space will be added, upgrades
to drainage, irrigation and
street lighting will be installed.
The entrance to the shop-
ping center will become a
Key West-style feature and a
pedestrian greenway will be
constructed along the north
property line that in the future
will connect to Sullivan Park
on the north side of Hillsboro
Boulevard.
Planning Director Jerry
Ferguson said physical con-


struction won't begin until
next August or September.
A rough estimate places the
cost at $2.7 million. The work
should take about four months
he added bringing the $12
million Hillsboro Boulevard
streetscape project and the
Cove improvements to a close
about the same time.
While a Phase II plan for
the Cove calling for a four-
story parking garage exists,
Ferguson said it has yet to be
approved by the commission.

ATV
Continued from page 5
Perkins said the VFD has
80 members, and each has
been taken out three times on
the ATV. "That's 240 trips, a
lot of abuse for an ATV. We
do a lot of training."
The GPS system keeps
track of the ATVs "from
when they leave the barn,"
McIntee said later. "There's
no hotdogging."
At the Jan. 27 meeting,


Dodd asked Perkins if the
VFD has to obey its own
Standard Operating Proce-
dures.
"It's a living document,
constantly changing," Perkins
said.
On Jan. 28, as Dodd read
his list of complaints, he
said, "When I find the VFD
have totally disregarded their
S.O.P.'s and/or bylaws and
elected the vice mayor for
deputy chief Yes, I have a
problem with that. Let me also


stress I do not have a prob-
lem with your abilities, vice
mayor, but the total disregard
for your own bylaws. Yes, I
have a problem with that."
"I'm not a corporate offi-
cer. I'm a line officer. I squirt
water. They wanted my vast
experience," McIntee said.
McIntee said he wrote to
Tallahassee (to the Florida
Commission on Ethics) to
lay out his position before he
ran for deputy chief. He had
already been the subject of


an ethics complaint over his
being a VFD deputy chief and
commissioner.
In his letter, he said he
receives no compensation for
his service to the VFD and
as deputy chief would still
receive zero compensation.
McIntee said he has noth-
ing to do with corporate deci-
sions or spending funds.
Dodd's long list of con-
cerns also included the inabil-
ity to get straight answers to
his questions about the beach


pavilion and who approved it
with no walls and no bath-
rooms and questions about
flagpoles and town entry signs
for video surveillance.
Silverstone suggested
Dodd get a workshop go-
ing on his concerns, or the
commission can't go forward.
"The issues are severe. If you
can't do your job, we have to
get that cleared up. We have
no.other choice but to work it
out."
