On Feb. 28, Pompano Beach will
host its 156 Annual Children in the
Arts, or CIA, competition at the Am-
phitheatre, 1801 NE 6 St. at 7:30 p.m.
For years, the competition, under
the auspices of the Broward Music
Teachers Association, or BMTA, has
attracted some of the finest young
pianists in the tri-county area.
Several CIA students have moved


on to other spotlights with their
performances, including 13-year-old
Gabrielle Chou, who has studied with
Maria.Gomez for 11 years.
Chou has been a consistent winner
in the Pompano competition with the
judges. And she's been a favorite with
the audience, winning the Virtuoso
award more than once. The award
determined by a group of audience
members.
Chou recently placed eighth in the

Deerfield's Dixie Highway flyover

$40 million in federal stimulus fund-

The $48 million flyover has been

Parking fees rise in LBTS, commissioners throw out special


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in Lau-
derdale-By-The-Sea unani-
mously passed a resolution
setting fees for metered park-
ing spaces in town at a recent
meeting.


ti


Jalne


In the process, commis-
sioners raised metered parking
fees from $1 to $1.25 per hour
and eliminated 15 special
beach parking permits.
Vice Mayor Jerry McIn-
tee agreed that special beach
permits be eliminated. "Why
should select people get a


BocDaPA


deal?" he asked. "This is a
nightmare. Wipe out the beach
fees. Have a flat fee for resi-
dents. Park anywhere in town
for $50 annually."
But after the unanimous
vote and a break in the meet-
ing, McIntee returned to the
dais with a change of heart
and moved to reconsider the
earlier motion, but the motion
failed 3 to 2.
In other parking action,
the commission raised the
annual hardship parking fees
from $100 to $200.
Hardship permits are used
by business owners whose
parking facilities do not
meet the required number of
spaces.
Residents who now pay
$18.78 annually for town-
wide parking permits will pay
$50. The permits exempt driv-
ers from using meters.
For others, parking is 25


cents an hour on Commercial
Boulevard and 50 cents an
hour on Bougainvilla Drive.
Minnet suggested that
parking rates should be raised
on Bougainvilla Drive since
many people park there and
go to the beach. Parking at a
meter on Bougainvilla costs
less than the town's parking
lots, she said.
The difference is that
parking on Bougainvilla has a
two-hour limit.
John Olinzock, assistant
to the town manager, said
those meters are monitored.
"It will always be a challenge,
but we are stepping up to the
plate with enforcement," he
added.
Commissioners agreed to
table, until Feb. 24, a sug-
gestion by representatives of
Ocean 101 and Village Grille
restaurants to establish valet
parkirig downtown to ease

Zero percent HUD loan

applications announced

Pompano Beach residents who are still in disarray from
Hurricane Wilma, may get some help for repairs by this spring.
A Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, Improve-
ment grant will offer residents up to $60,000 for repairs, reha-
bilitation, upgrades and more.
The criteria for the money requires that residents qualify as
"low-income" recipients. In 2008, a family of one was consid-
ered "low income" with an annual salary of $16,245. A family
of four is considered "low income" with an annual salary of
$33,075.
Note: The figures above may not apply to this year's pro-
gram. Call 954-786-4659 for updated figures.
City officials expect a large turnout for the HUD funding
and have decided to choose the recipients who qualify through
a lottery drawing in April. The exact date has not been an-
nounced.
To qualify for the drawing, applicants may pick up applica-
tions at city hall. They must be returned before March 6.


Lighthouse Point officer nabs hit and run suspect


Reckless driving landed
one suspect of a hit-and-run
driver to a halt in Lighthouse
Point when Officer Brian Tar-
box decided to stop a driver
on 36 street last month.
Tarbox observed a vehicle
driving recklessly.


Tarbox followed the
driver to NE 31 Avenue, a
dead end street.
When the driver made a
U-turn and drove toward the
officer in a threatening man-
ner, Tarbox shot the suspect,
who was then taken into cus-


tody and transported to North
Broward Medical Center.
The hit-and-run incident
had taken place in Pom-
pano Beach. The suspect was
charged and booked in Bro-
ward County Jail on numer-
ous charges.

"You don't need to be happy to
laugh, but laughing will make you
happy," so says Frank Rocco who of-
fers free lectures to non profits on the
benefits of laughter.
A retired hypnotherapist and bio
feedback technician, Rocco engages a
group right off by making them laugh.
"Once I've got them all laughing, I tell
them they have just helped themselves
live longer by reducing stress, lower-
ing their blood pressure, releasing
endorphins as if they were jogging,
and improving their focus."
From then on, Rocco's goal is to
make his audience feel like a bunch
of kids again. "We do laughter ex-
ercises," he says "and by playing
interactive games, we keep on having
fun and laughing.
"After 45 minutes of cavorting
with me, the audience leaves laugh-
ing and knowing they have learned a
free and simple way to control anxiety
and stress. It's very rewarding and it
works for me too. Whenever I feel my
own stress mounting, I laugh it away,
and I love teaching others to do the
same thing."
Joan Martin, librarian at the Percy
White Library in Deerfield Beach,
says, "He's fabulous. The minute he
begins his program, he has everyone
in the group laughing, and they contin-
ue laughing through three Hulley gully
cheers at the end. People leave feel-
ing much better than they felt walking
into Rocco's show."
Rocco says, "The value of laugh-
ter on the human body has already
been documented. It's a great, easily
available way to alter a mood and
reduce stress. In Japan, they are even


researching the effects of laughter on
diabetics. At North East Focal Point,
we were able to stimulate laughter
in Alzheimer patients who are often
unresponsive."
Donna M. DeFronzo, director of
Senior Services at N.E. Focal Point
was not on hand when Rocco en-
tertained, but she says, "I know his
programs here have been enjoyed and
I certainly agree with him that laugh-

Rocco began his career in show
business. He takes credit for intro-
ducing the Hully Gully dance on the
Ed Sullivan show. Then, after a car
accident he says, "I had an epiphany
and decided to leave show business
and do something more meaningful.
I became a volunteer social worker

was the 60s, during VietNam
protests. The population of
street people exploded. I left
the University of the Streets
when my own money began
to run out."
He became an intern with
a psychologist at Jefferson
Hospital in Philadelphia.
Next, he trained to become a
hypnologist and was certified
by the American Association
of Professional Hypnologists.
"This qualified me to begin a
fascinating 25 year career,"
he says, talking about some
of his clients. "I worked
with people with a variety of
problems from people with
addictions to professional
athletes. The team members
of the Philadelphia Phillies
were clients. I helped them
learn how to focus and to
release their natural talents.
They went on to win their first
world series. I did the same
for the Eagles football team
which succeeded in making it
to their first super bowl."
Rocco laughs a lot as
he tells a few of his suc-
cess stories. "I ended up in
Florida as a sales motivator
for corporations teaching
stress management to sales
teams. Psychiatrists referred
clients to me for stress relief.
The power of laughter and its
amazing effects on the human
body became very apparent to
me. I used this knowledge to
develop my volunteer presen-
tations on laugher as a stress
reliever."
He quotes Charlie Chap-
lin, saying A day without
laughter is a wasted day." For
me, there are no wasted days.
I'm happy and healthy with
three grown children whom I
talk to regularly. I play volley
ball three times a week, a little
tennis, and I enjoy ballroom
dancing."
Thanks for teaching us
to keep on laughing, Frank
Rocco. To request a laugh
lecture call 1-954-394-6595.

His voice was powerful, even though he was neither a pontificator nor a

Mayor Larkins lived through civil rights. He lived at a time when African

But Mayor Larkins bore no malice for those times. He was wise enough to

amendments that protect private property from eminent domain,
require a.4/5 majority commission vote to change land-use designation of open

to two terms and implemented staggered terms. I am the only commissioner in
Deerfield to present a meaningful code of ethics to the commission, which will
help to restore the public's faith in local government. I initiated much needed
improvements to the city-owned parking lot in the Cove Shopping Center and
set Key West architectural appearance standards for this center. The improve-
ments will begin soon and are paid for with CRA funds, not additional taxes. I

Wallis & Wallis attorney team specializes in


business and Real Estate property law


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Peter E.S. Wallis met his
wife, Joan Martino Wallis
when he crashed an alumni
party in New York. Laugh-
ing at the memory, he says
"She was an attorney who had
passed the bar in New York
and New Jersey. She was in
her third year of practice. I
was a three day law student."
That was in 1994. Since
then they have married,
moved to Florida, both passed
the Florida bar and have a


son, Torran, who is four. Now
they're a firm with law offices
at 1600 S. Federal Hwy.Pom-
pano Beach, in the Federal
Tower Building. Their prac-
tice is primarily focused on
business and Real property.
"Most of the time, we're
on different cases," Peter ex-
plains. "But I handle litigation
and Joan handles business and
Real property matters. Joan
is also a title agent. We pride
ourselves on being readily
available to our clients and on
giving them advice in their
best interest," he adds.


"That advice is not always
what they want to hear, but
it's always in their best inter-
est."
One of their specialties is
handling condos and HOAs,
or home owners associations,
time shares and coops. Peter
says, "We advise, research
rulings, do foreclosures, initi-
ate litigation, mediation and
arbitration as well as defend
all three."
When contacted, the firm
got high praise from Cathy
Morris, president of Spring

"Mr. Wallis is an absolute
wonderful person. If you

"We have had a good busi-

They have been very helpful

Foreclosure Defense is
currently a very active area
in their legal practice. Ac-

of foreclosure cases has
reached such an extent that
even undefended foreclosures
will take six months from

judgment is entered by the
court. "The action for fore-

Broward appraiser predicts more bad news at Cresthaven meeting


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Foreclosures and short
sales accounted for 80 percent
of home sales in Broward
County last year.


"They're the elephant
in the room that will gen-
erate lower assessments,"
Peter Levine of the Broward
County Property Appraiser's
Office said, addressing the

recently.
Although not taken into
effect in the past in determin-
ing property values, "Short
sales are now considered
qualified sales that will affect
all sales in an area," Levine
explained.
Short sales are never a
popular vehicle, he said, ex-
plaining how they work.
"If a lender is owed more
than the house is worth, say
the borrower owes $200,000
but has a buyer willing to pay
$150,000, if the bank agrees
and swallows the difference,
it's called a short sale. The
bank takes a $50,000 hit,"
Levine said. "The borrower
may have gotten in over his


-Li.


head, can't make the mort-
gage payment and [may have]
taken out an equity line of
credit in addition to the mort-
gage."
, Levine added that the
"short" sale will have a nega-
tive impact on surrounding
property values.
Short sales require a bank
concession, and Levine says
the banks could slow down
foreclosures if mortgage hold-
ers were more willing to allow
borrowers to "stretch out pay-
ments over more years."
And there's the good
news that's also the bad news.
With plummeting property
values, taxpayers are going to
see their assessments go down


in 2009 Levine explained.
"Lots of people are genuinely
afraid their property value is
evaporating. This year we will
have a huge drop in assess-
ments," he said.
"Last year, property
values started to plummet,"
Levine noted. "Those with
homestead exemptions saw a
3 percent increase in property
tax. Snowbirds saw a $50,000
drop in value."
In other news:
Civic 'Association mem-
bers congratulated Pompano
Beach City Commissioner
Charlotte Burrie on her re-
election without opposition.
Burrie was presented with
a bouquet of roses. "We're
happy no one bothered to
challenge you," said Sarah
Brown, president. "We let it
be known, 'Don't bother'."

Stimulus
Continued from page 1
Greg Stuart, MPO's interim
director.
On the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation project
list for more than 20 years, the
flyover has been repeatedly
set aside by highway planners.
Jim Wolfe, FDOT District
1V Secretary, has reportedly
pledged $8 million in district
funds to make up the shortfall
from the stimulus funds.
"We want it," said
Deerfield Beach City Man-
ager Mike Mahaney, who has
already sent Washington and
Tallahassee a "whole lot of
projects" for stimulus fund-
ing.
The Dixie Highway
flyover is designed as a
four-lane highway beginning
at Hillsboro Boulevard and
going north to SW 18 Street
in Boca Raton. A new 1,600-
foot bridge would span the
FEC railroad and the Hills-
boro Canal. Improved traffic
signals, drainage, landscaping,
lighting, street modifications,
sidewalk and bike lanes are
included in the project'. .
Deerfield's representative
on the MPO is Dist. 4 Com-
missioner Colleen DiDonato.
Lighthouse:Point Commis-
sioner-Satdy Johnsonrepre-
sents her city and Pompano's,
voice.on theMPO is Vice
Mayor George Brummer.
Neither Hillsboro Beach nor
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea cur-
rently have appointees to the


board.
On Mahaney's list of
improvements sent to U.S.
Congressman Alcee Hastings
is $3.5 million to widen FAU
Research Park Boulevard (SW
11 Way) from SW 10 Street to
NE 48 Street, continuing on
to Sample Road in Pompano
Beach.
The requested amount
is half of the- estimated cost
with Deerfield Beach and the
county putting up the rest.
Mahaney has also requested
$700,000 to rehab the fishing
pier which is in need of major
structural restoration. This
week, an engineering firm was
chosen for initial repairs esti-
mated at $250,000. Two mil-


lion dollars to replace a force
main under the Intracoastal
Waterway and $3 million to
rehabilitate the Cove Shop-
ping Center are also being
requested by the city manager.
Mahaney submitted 16
other infrastructure projects to

ago and has been serving
thousands of wings to happy
customers ever since. "I have
been in the restaurant business
for 15 years and decided to
open in Deerfield Beach be-
cause it is such a friendly and
family oriented community"
she says.
While sitting at the bar
with a frosty Holy Mack-
erel beer in hand, I sampled
a plate containing Teriyaki,
Firecracker, Garlic Parmesan,
Goldrush, Honey-Chipotle,
Raspberry and Thai Ginger
wings. "These are some of our
most popular flavors," says
Tomei.
Other noteworthy sauces
are the Bourbon Apple glaze,
the Ancho Chile Lime, the
Jamaican Jerk, the Honey
Balsamic, the Tuscan Herb
and, for the courageous, the
Volcanic Lava glaze.
"If you are a wing aficio-
nado, no other place offers the
selection they have here" says
local resident Jim Nair.
But Hurricane Grill &.
Wings also has a formidable
selection of salads, grilled
fish and chicken sandwiches,
Angus Steak burgers and tasty
appetizers such as their classic
Wood Smoked Fish Dip with
Mahi-Mahi & Wahoo.
Another recommended
dish is the grilled Mahi-
Mahi "Baja Taco" Salad.
This ample serving of mixed
greens rests on a bed of crisp
tortilla chips topped with
grilled, mesquite seasoned
Mahi-Mahi, diced tomatoes,
jalapefiios, shredded cheddar
cheese, fire roasted tomato
salsa with a buttermilk ranch
dressing.
Hurricane's Garlic & Par-
mesan Fries are served in a
cone shaped receptacle and


Spiciness Categories 1 through 4 are represented here. Clockwise from bottom:
Thai Ginger, Teriyaki, Firecracker, Garlic-Parmesan, Goldrush, Honey-Chipotle
and Raspberry. [Below] The Grilled Mahi-Mahi "Baja Taco" Salad is a great
choice for those looking for a healthy seafood alternative.


are irresistible. "Our sweet-po-
tato straws with maple-pepper
glaze are out-of-this-world as
well" chimes in Tomei.
For those looking for a
place to watch their favor-
ite team, this fun eatery has
four large flat-screen TVs, an
impressive selection of wine
and micro-brews on tap, a
happy hour that runs from 3 to
7 p.m. and all-day beer bucket
specials such as five domes-
tics for $10.
"We eat here at least once
a week" said Colleen DiDo-
nato, a Deerfield Beach City
Commissioner who happened
to drop by to pick up an order
of wings for her family.
With daily lunch specials


and almost every item on the
menu priced under $9, a visit
to Hurricane Grill & Wings
will not empty your pocket-
book.
And if you still have room
after your meal, make sure to
try their famous "Return of
the Crispy Banana Caramel
Cheesecake." This is one
dessert that is sure to, well...
blow you away!

12th Taipei International
Chopin Piano Competition.
That led to an invitation to
play Chopin's Concerto No.
2 with the National Taiwan
Symphony Orchestra.
Chou, a middle school
student, will compete Feb. 28
in the Advanced II level at
the Emma Lou Olson Civic
Center. Her competition piece
cannot be disclosed.
Mary Beth Purchase,
president of the BMTA, says
this year's performance will
include Rachmaninoff Cho-
pin, Bach and Mueller. More
than 170 young musicians
from the tri-county area will
be participating for prizes,
trophies and cash.
Former audience members
will also recall Christopher
Ohanian, 19, who studies
with Professor Judith Bur-
ganger at Florida Atlantic
University. Ohanian won the
Advanced II level three years
ago. This weekend Ohaaian
performs at the Broward


Center for the Performing Arts
Amaturo Theater where he
will play Mendelssohn's Piano
Concerto in G minor with
the Walenstein Symphony.
The concert, a tribute to Felix
Mendelssohn, begins tonight,
Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Romel Joseph, violinist,
Julliard graduate and Walen-
stein Symphony conductor
calls Ohanian a "dedicated,
professional and excellent
pianist."
The CIA piano competition
does not charge entrance fees.
Those fees are underwritten by
the following sponsors: Pom-
pano Beach, Steinway Piano
Gallery, John Knox Village,
Carrabba's Italian Grill, Keith
and Associates, Palm Aire
Friends of the Arts and Dr. Joe
McGee.
Students who meet the
requirements and repertoire
must memorize their musical
selections to play for judges
on a timed basis.
The competition will take
place at the Emma Lou Olson
Civic Center from 8 a.m. to 6

will perform in a recital play-
ing their winning pieces.
At the conclusion of the
performances, Vice Mayor
George Brummer will an-
nounce the final place winners
in all categories.
"There are no losers at the
Pompano Beach piano com-
petition," Purchase explains.
"Our judges give each student
full critiques for their per-
formances. All students are
awarded tee shirts, especially
designed for the event, and
programs that validate their
participation in this competi-
tion."
But for the winners, foot-
ball size trophies and cash
awards up to $500, top off this
competition.
The recital is free to the
public. This year, a free-will
donation will be accepted to
help underwrite next year's
performance. Sponsors are
needed for the 2010 competi-
tion.

the amount still owed by the
town, said Gary G. Condra of
Leisure Towers, who said the
condo was told by town staff
they would be reimbursed.
"They were jerked around
for two years," Vice Mayor
Jerry Mclntee said. "An old
commission gave them a
hard time. The way the town
treated them was unfair."
Clottey disagreed. "The
town spent $33,000 on paving
and other improvements on
the condo property," she said.
Town Manager Esther
Colon said the previous town
attorney had recommended
not paying the bill, noting that
it was a contractual agreement
between the condo and FPL.
John Olinzock, assistant
to the town manager, said
the easement for FPL was
between the condo and FPL.
He said payment needed the
blessing of the commission.
"This is troublesome,"
Clottey said. "The town some-
how or other made improve-
ments on private property. I
think they (the condo) should
give us some money back and
go after FPL. When will we
stop using taxpayer money for
private property?"
Commissioner Stuart Dodd
said he "waded" through
70-some pages of backup
material on the issue. That in-
cluded a letter written March
18, 2003 by the then Assistant
City Manager Laura Ward
noting that the town would fix
the parking lot, curbing and
fencing.
"They have tried since
2003 to get the money for the
fencing. It should never have
gotten to this stage," Dodd
said. "They should never have
had to threaten legal action.
The town should send a check
to settle the matter and an
apology."

James L. Jones, former principal of Blanche
Ely High School remembers Pat Larkins as
his student and "best friend"
"In the late 50s, Pat was in my math class at Ely. He was
president of the student council. I saw his leadership abilities.
He had his own ideas, he had followers, and he had the ability
to get people to believe in his goals. Pat was the most hon-
est person I have ever known. When he went into politics, I
was his treasurer and confidant. It was never about Pat. It was
about others. He always called me 'Boss Man,' and I called
him 'Chief.' He was my best friend."
