renames 33rd

PELICAN STAFF
Pompano
Beach commis-

the name of
s Dennis Myers as
the newest street
in the city. Now
know as North-
east 33 Street,
a thoroughfare
Myers from Dixie Highway
to Federal Highway, the street serves
as one example of Myers' deep love
for his community. Carol Waldrop,
who spearheaded the project for Den-

the Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast.
The breakfast was initiated last
year as a Centennial event, the 100th
birthday of Pompano Beach and was
sponsored by the Historical Society's
Centennial Committee. This year the


Historical Society is funding the event
through ticket sales and donations.
Mayor Lamar Fisher says he

commissioners

ready to sign

new ethics code
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach officials came
closer to a local "Code of Ethics"
policy with a unanimous vote Tues-
day. The commission will finalize its
approval after Tuesday's amendments
are added and a second reading takes
place next month.
Vice Mayor George Brummer has
opposed the code for years, claiming
codes don't change a person's ethics
and that the state already has an eth-
ics board to deal with violations and

LBTS OKs some

boats, trailers in

driveways

By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea may be
suffering from "annexation remorse."
And both the annexers and those
who were annexed three years ago feel
they are on the short end of the deal.
The most recent issue has to do
with boats and trailers parked in drive-
ways.
Original town residents want the
code which prohibits those vehicles in
driveways to be town wide.And those
homeowners in the newly annexed
area are divided on the issue.
Town commissioners have at-
tempted to find a middle road, but last
Tuesday, they reversed three former
decisions, agreeing to allow only
residents who had a boat at the time of
annexation to keep them on trailers in
their driveways in the two communi-
ties of Bel Air and Terra Mar.

turf cannot be considered
landscaping.
Terri Rasmussen, who lives
in the Gates of Ifillsboro, que-
ried Philip Busey, an associate
professor of environmental
horticulture at the University
of Florida Research Center
in Davie last year asking if
artificial turf is an acceptable
water conservation measure
when used as a lawn.
Busey wrote that the
.manufactured turf has an
impervious surface and "other
deficiencies" that violate the
definition of landscaping.
Grassed areas, he added,
provide filtration of water
which protects the aquifer,
provide habitat for wildlife
and generation of oxygen.
It also can become extreme-
ly hot with temperatures of
173 degrees Fahrenheit, hotter
than asphalt.
Rasmussen's request was


handled quickly and affirma-
tively at last week's city com-
mission meeting with com-
missioners agreeing that local
ordinances should prohibit
the use of such materials for
home use.
Coral Springs, Parkland and
Boca Raton already do so.
But there are proponents of
artificial turf. One of them is
Robert Carew with Broward's
Environmental Protection
Department.
In a letter Carew sent to
Rasmussen, he wrote that the
newer products look quite
real and are being installed
in parks and medians and in
drought-prone areas.
Last year, when Rasmussen
was requesting a code viola-
tion be placed on the turf in
her neighborhood, assistant
city attorney Charles Seaman
pointed out that the prop-
erty in dispute did meet the


city's 15 percent landscaping
requirement and the artifi-
cial turf was probably of the
newer, pervioustype.
The homeowners in Gates
of Hillsboro installed the turf
without permission from the
homeowner's association,
a violation of the covenants
there, and are being sued for
that omission, not for the use
of the turf.
As much as the neighbors
dislike the artificial surface
Rasmussen said, it remains
green while many lawns in the
community have turned brown
in this dry season.

SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

Major Julius Horow-
itz, Ret., recently posed at
the "Wings of Freedom"
event at Pompano Airpark
on Feb. 5. He holds a
photograph of himself as
he appeared in 1944 on
active duty as a B-17 pilot
in World War 11.
Horowitz flew 50
combat missions with
the 15th Air Force, 99th
Bomb Group, out of
North Africa and later
out of Italy. He and his
group bombed targets in
Italy, Austria, Germany,
Greece, France and Yugo-
slavia.
Horowitz and his
crew survived numerous
attacks by enemy fighter


trom the ground, taking hits
on many occasions.
Major Horowitz remem-
bers well the extremely cold
conditions in which he flew.
The B-17 was not heated and
temperatures inside the air-
plane often dropped to minus
60 degrees Fahrenheit.
He also remembers many
details about his missions. He


es


of men anu planes occurred
near Berlin, the Ploesti oil
fields, and Vienna. He person-
ally participated in two such
raids at Weiner Neustadt, near
Vienna.
According to historical
information, the bombing ul-
timately left only 18 of 4,000
buildings undamaged.

New WID

campus under

construction in

Deerfield Beach
Women in Distress, or WID, will
move its administrative offices and
shelters to acreage in Deerfield Beach
near 1-95 and Green Road, an event
that spokesperson Mary Riedel terms
"a milestone for us." Land for the new
campus was purchased in December.
The 35-year-old'organization
provides temporary homes for abused
women and their children and, accord-
ing to Riedel, fias not added beds for
three decades. This move allows them
an eventual total of 132 beds from the
current 61. Existing shelters in Fort
Lauderdale and Hollywood will be
closed when WID moves late this year.
A program to make this commu-
nity aware of Women in Distress and
its work will begin in April along with
a capital campaign.
WID operates on an annual budget
of $4 million, half of it provided by the
Florida Coalition Against Domestic
Violence. With the move, the budget
will likely become $5 million Riedel
said.
The WID campus will be com-
prised of the Jim and Jan Moran Ad-
ministrative Building and five shelter
homes.
Anyone interested in learning
more about WID and its new facility
can contact Riedel at mriedel@wom-
enindistress.org.


Turtle Day is

March 7
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center Will
hold a Turtle Day Event Saturday,
March 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. officially
starting the 2009 hatchling rescue
season.
Attendees will learn about the
coastal environment and the impor-
tance of the turtles that come ashore
every summer to lay eggs. Theme
for this day is a warning: "Plastic is
Forever."
Anyone interested in joining a
squad of qualified hatchling rescuers
may sign up at this event. Gumbo
Limbo is located on A1A in Boca
Raton, north of Glades Road.
Richard Whitecloud, who heads
up the'Deerfield Beach turtle rescue
effort, said this year data on lighting
compliance will be collected.
With continuing coastal erosion,
lights directed away from the beach
and from the turtle nests, are becom-
ing more important for the survival of
the species, he said.

Difference


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Melvin Davis, security specialist,
deals with high school students all day
and in his free time he is often sup-
porting their self esteem through local
service projects developed by him and
his fraternity brothers.
For example, on December 27,
Eta Nu, Pompano chapter of Omega
Psi Phi Fraternity collaborated with
the Franklin Park Civic Associa-
tion to create a successful Kwanzaa
celebration. Kwanzaa is a week long
celebration created by Dr. Maulana
Karenga in 1966 to highlight African
American history and accomplish-
ments. It focuses on the traditional
African values of family, community
responsibility, commerce and self
improvement.
Davis explains, "This is a cul-
tural holiday; it is neither political
nor religious. It is not a substitute for
Christmas. Kwanzaa is celebrated
with African American art exhibits,
song, dance, poetry reading, skits
and sharing a traditional meal. Our
chapter has celebrated this holiday
for two decades. We are celebrating
the achievements and contributions to
society made by African Americans"
As social action chairman of Eta
Nu, Davis is involved in many service
projects. He says, "Our organization
gives $10,000 in scholarships ev-
ery year. Senior boys and girls from
Blanch Ely High School can apply and
are selected based on income, grade
average, community service and writ-

ten essays."
Eta Nu also has unique mentoring
programs twice a month. About 15 to
20 students, ages 10 to 15, learn how
to be socially comfortable as they learn
rules of etiquette, dating, appearance,
how to tie a tie, which fork to use and
more. Davis says, "Our members feel
if we catch these youngsters early, they
can be motivated to build self esteem
through self improvement."
At holiday time, the Eta Nu frater-
nity house at 915 NW 6 St. is turned
into a temporary store stocked with
gifts and toys for every age. Donated
toys collected during the group's Toys
for Tots Drive are attractively dis-
played and ready to be chosen.
"Children in need, targeted by
agencies and chapter members, are
invited to come and shop for several
presents. Davis says, "Last year we
had 165 children from eight to 15 who
were very excited to shop our toy land.
Our biggest reward is watching their


faces."
James Jones, member of Eta Nu,
calls Davis "One of the most depend-
able and active members of our 60
plus fraternity brothers, and," he adds,
"He's the main reason we have won so
many social action awards in the state
and district."
A dedicated man, Davis is a
graduate of Lane College in Jackson,
Tennessee with a major in sociology
and a minor in criminal justice. He
has had a 20-year career with the

State Dept. of Corrections and
since retiring, he has enjoyed
a second, 10-year career with
the Broward School System as
a Security Specialist based at
Blanche Ely High School.
"My biggest challenge
was switching from giving
orders to learning how to use
tools like persuasion, coop-
eration, and meaningful, logi-
cal conversation to achieve a
good result. I prefer what I
do now because I can make a
difference in a young person's
life."
Head of security at
Blanche Ely, Vernice Brown
says, "Melvin is great with
the kids. They all respect him.
He and I have been working
together for 10 years. He's
my right hand man. I count on
him because he's dependable
and always does what needs
to be done."
When The Pelican asked
Davis how he feels about the
youngsters he deals with, he
ponders the question. "When
I first started at Blanche Ely,
I was deeply concerned. As I
got to know all of our young
people in the school, I found
we have many positive and
constructive children. Over
the years, I have learned how
to deal with the troubled
ones. We are much more than
security here. We can solve a
lot of problems by becoming
patient listeners, counselors
and mentors."
Thank you Melvin Davis
and the Eta Nu Pompano
Beach chapter of Omega
Psi Phi for your community
involvement.

ceived a healthy portion of
the $1.9 billion budget of the
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development, or
HUD. Most of the funds will
be used to build permanent
and transitional housing. The
funds will provide for 968


beds and is the second high-
est award from HUD for the
homeless initiative program to
end homelessness in 10 years.
Broward County's Homeless
Continuum of Care is a "Blue
Ribbon Best Practice" and has
consistently ranked among the
top in the nation.

Codes of ethics pale when

compared to moral obligations
By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER
Within minutes of adopting a code of ethics for themselves, Pompano Beach
commissioners proceeded to wash their hands of a series of problems that their
own citizens have been concerned about for months.
Some homeowners at the Pompano Beach Ortanique housing develop-
ment, an affordable housing project, funded by local, state and federal taxes,
have complained about issues that include unexpected changes in the designs.
One change removed three feet from their garage lengths, making it impossible
to house a car. Another issue was the loss of bathroom shower doors that were
exchanged with plastic curtains and, in one case, a bathtub that had a piece of
plastic between the tub and a cabinet, causing water damage to the cabinet.
To add insult to injury, this month, 14 homeowners had their cars ticketed
for street parking, another complaint made to the commission.
Little more than half of the homes have been completed.
Some commissioners, the city manager and Broward NAACP president,
Willie Lawson, have toured the development since the complaints became pub-
lic, many agreeing that the problems were valid.
Commissioner Charlotte Burrie was the first official to call for an audit of
the funds, and she gained full support of the commission.
On Tuesday, the city auditor gave an update of the audit, adding while some
information has not been received, it appeared that there was no evidence to
show any criminal activity.
Indeed, the issue could be one of "Buyer Beware," where new first-time
homeowners failed in their own due-diligence before signing on the mortgages-
-one mortgage on the house and a second mortgage of the land that had been
purchased by the city and donated for the project.
But since all of these homeowners had to attend a series of meetings with
the lending bank, city officials and others, to qualify for the loans and grants, it
seems reasonable that they all would have been educated to expect some issues
and equally educated on how to deal with them.
It has become clear that from a legal standpoint, the city is not required to
oversee developments once the money has been dispersed. Does that need to
change?
While city officials have no legal responsibility in this issue, they do have a
moral mandate to make things right for these and future homeowners.
We hope this is not the end for the homeowners and the taxpayers who have
funded Ortanique and other affordable housing projects.
President Obama's call for transparency with taxpayer dollars was very clear
this week. The precedent to protect and ensure the right use of tax dollars has
come from this nation's capitol.
Legal obligations often change, but moral obligations never do.
If officials are using taxpayer funds to build affordable housing, they should
spend a few more dollars to make sure they are built correctly.


Deerfield Beach Endorsements

The Pelican endorses Al Capellini

in Deerfield Beach mayoral race
The Pelican editorial board gives its vote to former Deerfield Beach mayor
Al Capellini whose knowledge of the city's financial situation and his progres-
sive stance on development makes him, we believe, the most qualified of the six
candidates.
Capellini served almost 16 years before he was suspended from office by the
governor on charges that he misused his public position for personal gain.
During those 16 years, Deerfield Beach prospered. The beach was redevel-
oped into a vibrant public place with fine food, entertainment and unlimited
ocean views. A new public works building and mitigation operations center were
built. The water plant was upgraded and a reverse osmosis treatment plant is
now being constructed insuring Deerfield's water supply for years to come. After
the hurricanes of 2004 and 2005, this city was cleaned up faster than any of its
neighbors despite extensive landscape damage. Unlike most surrounding cities,
at no time was Deerfield's water supply shut off.
Acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, the Commission, headed
by Capellini, made drainage and aesthetic improvements to Ocean Way and has
begun major upgrades to East Hillsboro Boulevard. Improvements to the Cove
Shopping Center are scheduled for later this year.
Capellini is running despite the charges against him. His election will pose
problems if, as is likely now, his name is not cleared by the swearing-in date of
March 13. Until he is found not guilty, he would not be able to serve and just
how that situation would be resolved is still unclear.
But in our legal system, Capellini is innocent until proven guilty and so must
be judged on his accomplishments, not on this indictment.
With his engineering background, his ability to .understand the city's precarious
financial situation made worse by an increasing number of home foreclosures,
and his readiness to go back to work for this city, Capellini is best qualified to
serve another four years.

Noland is also a good choice

Coming very close to Capellini in our point system which rated the candidates
on their knowledge of local issues, their understanding of how municipal govern-
ment functions, their commitment to the community and their ability to commu-
nicate ideas, was former Dist. 1 City Commissioner Peggy Noland.
Like Capellini, Noland raised her family in this city. Long before she was
elected in 1993, she was a go-to citizen who worked with youth programs and
salvaged the Cracker Day Parade.
During Noland's commission tenure, she developed valuable contacts at state
and local governmental levels. She single-handedly lobbied for the aquatic
complex and has strong ties to Deerfield's business community which she feels
should get more cooperation from the city.
Noland is a strong believer in neighborhood associations and would be an
upbeat, accessible public official.
Noland's major drawback is the fact both her husband and her son work for
the Deerfield Beach Fire/Rescue Department rendering her, by her own volition,
unable to vote on important fire contract and pension issues which could result in
a commission stalemate on these important topics.


In District 1 The Pelican

recommends Joe Miller
Although unschooled in public life, Joe Miller presents a strong case in his bid
to represent District 1. A long-time resident and successful businessman, Miller
has the interests of other small business owners in mind. He favors a direct ap-
proach to problems and believes decisions should be made after talking to the
people involved. Budget wise, Miller believes department heads know best how
to save public dollars and he would listen to their ideas.
He is a supporter of a strong city manager form of government which we also
believe works best to maintain continuity and bring about progress. And he sees
himself as a mediator who can restore harmony on the commission.
There are areas in the city that should be better maintained and Miller will look
for more efficient ways to do that. At this time in his life, with his sons taking on
more responsibility in the family business, Miller has a great opportunity to bring
his brand of leadership forward.
The fact that this is a two-year term is a plus. Voters can make a change in
2011 if Miller's head-on approach is unsettling, or if he finds he is uncomfortable
with the all too often, slow-moving wheels of government.

L- ----J, --- --. -


Deerfield

Beach-
candidates
Continued from page 6
District 3

deserves

Capobianco's
sharp mind
Rarely does a candidate
with Donna Capobianco's ex-
perience in business strategies
take the plunge into politics.
The Pelican heartily endorses
her desire to represent Cen-
tury Village East and Crystal
Lake believing she will bring
a short learning curve to the
job. As president of the man-
agement board that provides
services to Century Village,
Capobianco brought fiscal
responsibility back to that
organization after it catered
so much to its citizens, it was
operating at a deficit. She
demonstrated the ability to
act decisively and the will to
make unpopular decisions. At
this point, she seems impervi-
ous to critics and uninterested
in playing to the crowd. She
is a highly effective commu-
nicator.
Such single-mindedness in
a politician would be a treat
for those of us who endure
the lengthy discussions that
bog down commission agen-
das.
We feel there is one area
that both Capobianco and the
incumbent Marty Popelsky
have overlooked. It's the
increasing number of Brazil-
ian 6migr6s living in District
3 who deserve a voice in this
city. Making contact with a
leader from their community
would be a wise move.
If Capobianco has a fault,
it is that she may be overly
optimistic about her abili-
ties and the way things are
done in government: She has
pledged to serve only one
term, i.e. "doing the job and
getting out."
Voters should give her this
chance.

It's a draw in District 4
Voters in District 4 can go to the polls confident that they
will have a fine city commissioner come March 11. Either Gary
Lother or Bill Ganz will represent them well. The choice really
is how each man approaches things.
As Deerfield's fire chief for 10 years, Lother sees problems
from a management perspective. As a community activist,
Ganz works the grass roots.
Both are dedicated to the city and their district and ener-
gized by politics. They agree the city needs business growth.
Both question the four percent cost of living, or COLA, raises
given city employees. Lother would support a hiring and
spending freeze. Ganz favors zero-line budgeting.
Lother oversaw an $18 million budget and fell out of favor
with the firefighter's union when he opposed the Broward
Sheriff's Office taking over Deerfield's Fire/Rescue Depart-
ment. After he resigned his position, Lother became active in
the Deer Creek Homeowners' Association and now serves as its
president. Through his years of public service in the fire depart-
ment, he understands the functions of government and is now
uniquely positioned to identify local issues.
Ganz gained experience in public life through his homeown-
er's association and was the first person to bring the problem of
home foreclosures to the commission's attention which resulted
in a new ordinance. He also served on an ad hoc telecommuni-
cations committee that rewrote Deerfield's code to make public
open space off limits for cell phone towers. He served on the
code enforcement board and on the Community Round Table
for the Metropolitan Planning Organization. He works for his
family's plumbing supply business.
The Pelican Editorial Board gave each of these candidates
identical scores.
It is up to the voters to decide which one best represent their
interests and concerns.

Growing a beautiful community


Three areas in South Central Deerfield Beach neighborhoods have been enhanced with flowering trees and ground
cover, one of the last beautification projects to be completed in the Broward Beautiful program. Money for that
program expired in 2008, but in 2007, $10,000 was awarded to this neighborhood near Sample Road at Northeast
5 Avenue. Major work was done on NE 3 Avenue where Japanese blueberry, grasses, beach sunflowers and other
blossoming species have been planted.
Pictured are Brenda Andrus, Robert Potter, Debbie Andrus, president of the homeowners' association which in-
cludes the communities of Pompano Lakes/Woodsetter, Woodsetter North, Bonnie Lock and Spring Lake; Rene,

At The Hair Studio, Inc., the goal is to keep

clients looking and feeling their best
By Phyllis J. Neu berTger
PELICAN STAFF


Owner, Darlene Pearson,
opened The Hair Studio at
1803 E. Sample Road in 2004.
"Since then, I've built a won-
derful clientele," she says. "In
my case many of my clients
have become good friends.
Coming from New Hamp-
shire, I was new in town so
my business has enabled me
to meet many lovely women
and men. I love what I do and
I'm good at it. After all, I'm
helping people look and feel
their best. That's my idea of a
good job!"
She as just putting the
finishing touches on Lana
Bacic's hairstyle when this
interview took place. Bacic
had nothing but praise for
Darlene, saying, "Darlene has
been handling my color and
cuts for the past three years.
I keep coming back
because I like the
result." "
The shod5.

the rear and offers a
back door entrance.
Stepping inside,
patrons are greeted
by either Rodica Zyl-
stra or Ruth Ditori,
shampoo ladies, who
immediately offer
patrons a soft drink
or coffee.
Pearson says, i
"My biggest asset
is my knowledge of

Ethics


Continued from page 1
And this week Brummer
continued to object to the
phrase that allows not simply
a violation of the code, but
also the "appearance of" a
violation be enough grounds
to file a complaint.
At one meeting, Brummer
suggested that if he leaned
over and told his colleague
that his "shoelace was un-
tied," someone could file
a complaint because of an
appearance that two commis-
sioners were secretly discuss-
ing an issue.
The commission deleted
that phrase from the code this
week.
Travis Williamson, who
heads the Coalition for Ethi-
cal Government, the group
that generated the ethics
code, had several other sug-
gested changes, but with the
exception of one, none were
considered.
The change the commis-
sion did approve was to allow
that a "simple" majority of
the appointed ethics board
have the power to determine
whether or not a charge was
"frivoloTs":. i : : i
Other items that had been
removed from the code were
jail time, fines up to $10,000
and compensation for the
ethics board that would be
determined by Chief Judge of
the 17th Judicial Circuit,
Under the code, commis-
sioners have 12 prohibitions
including voting on items
where there is a conflict of
interest or where there can be
a direct benefit from a vote.
Other prohibitions include
the improper use of a city
position for personal benefit
or gain, improper use of city
personnel, city property or
city vehicles.
Gifts, compensation,
favors, rewards and gratuities
are prohibited with some
exceptions such as a public
awards, a city-hosted meal or :
a gift valued less than $50.
The code will also follow
the elected official for two
years after the term of office
expires. Elected officials must
not divulge confidential or
privileged information that
had been gained during his or


her service to the city. They
may not represent any person
as an advocate in a matter in
which the former commis-
sioner had been involved.
"It's a set of principles I
can live with," said Brummer.
"But I could not live with the
'appearance of impropriety'."
That was a threat."
Commissioner Barry
Dockswell, a strong proponent
of the code, called Brummer's
fears regarding the "appear-


ance" of violations "scare"
tactics.
Citizens who want to file
complaints must pay a $300
fee to the Pompano Beach
Ethics Board. Unless the com-
plaint is judged as "frivolous,"
the board can take the case
and make several determina-
tions.
According to City Attor-
ney Gordon Linn, the board
could determine that the evi-
dence is serious enough to be

remanded to county court or
forwarded to the state pros-
ecutor.,
The board could also
recommend censure, where
charges against the com-
missioner would be read in
public with the commissioner


in attendance.
The city's board of eth-
ics does not duplicate state
prohibitions such as a "Sun-
shine" violation, where two or
more commissioners discuss
an issue in private that has a
pending vote.

Mayor Roseann Minnet
and Commissioner Birute
Clottey dissented.
Here's the history.
On Jan. 27 the commis-
sion agreed to allow boats in


residential yards hinBet Air*
and Terra Mar. That decision
reversed an earlier decision
to allow only those who had
boats at the time of annexation
to keep them.
Edmund Malkoon, presi-
dent of the Bel Air Civic
Association, said a recent poll

indicated that of 144 respons-
es, 98 residents didn't want
boats on trailers.
Malkoon said his personal
view was that allowing boats
and trailers in yards would re-
flect badly on property values.
"Why is it not OK in the
south but OK in the north?" he
asked. "We are one town; we
should have one law."
Malkoon said Bel Air cur-
rently has people renting out
driveways to those with boats,
including one or two airboats.
"The majority of hom-
eowners have spoken. You
should respect the majority,"
he said.
Bel Air resident MarJo
Lexa had previously given the
commission a petition signed
by 113 residents who wanted
to keep their boats in drive-
ways.
But that petition was chal-
lenged by a Bel Air resident
who claimed the people who
signed the earlier petition did
not understand what they were
signing.
"There's a place for boats,
and it's in the water," he said.
"Boats belong in the back of


property or in marinas."
Vito Chiarello of Terra
Mar said a survey there
showed 60 residents were
against boats and trailers.
Malkoon said Lexa's peti-
tion included 27 renters. He
said property owners should
have the say....
Lexa said the petition she
circulated was very clearly
stated. She said renters should
be accorded the same rights as
property owners.
Debra Werner said, "If
I wanted to live in a trailer
park or a marina, I would live
there," she said. "I suggest
strongly that you fix this and
move the towinin a positive
direction or you will reap what
you sow,"
Werner said she would be
for trailers, motor homes or
the Queen Mary. "But they
must be in the garage, and
they must be maintained."
Bel Air resident Michael
Power questioned who would
monitor compliance if boats
and trailers were allowed.
"How can you monitor two
sets of codes when you can
barely monitor the code you


have?" he asked. "Let's have
one code and unify the town."
Commissioner Stuart
Dodd said he was "rather
angry" to see that a huge
chunk of changes had been
made to the original proposed
ordinance on boat storage,
including adding RVs and
guests. "The original intention
was only to allow boats. We
never intended that a guest
could use a driveway for his
boat. It was never intended so
residents could rent driveways
for airboats," he said.
He said changes were
made in the proposed ordi-
nance behind the scenes. "I
apologize to those who love
boats. I'm not prepared to
take away your rights," Dodd
said.
"This is a very difficult is-
sue," Mayor Roseann Minnet
said. "We don't hate boats.
We love boats. The issue is
not having a boat. It's putting
it behind an enclosure so it's
not in the driveway. We have
to move forward to correct
this in the best way possible.
We are one town, and it's
time we become one town."

LBTS beach pavilion nears completion,
commissioners OK $13,000 for more outlets


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea approved
a $13,298 change order for
a beach pavilion nearing
completion at the end of
Commercial Boulevard.
The funds were needed to
add 10 electrical receptacles,
alter the road to ease conges-
tion and add a sand dune.
Commissioner Stuart
Dodd tried unsuccessfully to
have the vote postponed at
Tuesday's meeting because
he had just received the
backup materials.
Town Manager Esther Co-
lon said the contractor is get-
ting ready to pave, and road
changes made later would
increase costs. She said out-
lets could be added later, but
the cost would increase. "I'm
trying to avoid additional cost
and additional delay."
The $371,000 pavilion
is scheduled for completion
March 4. The town received a
$1.78,000 grant from Broward
County to help with the costs.
Colon said the changes
weren't due to her lack of
planning.
Dodd questioned why it
wasn't discovered sooner
that more electrical outlets
were needed when plans were
reviewed.
"This is the way the proj-
ect was approved," Colon re-
sponded. "If this commission
doesn't want change orders, I
won't bring them. I just don't
want additional expense."
Commissioner Birute
Clottey said she brought the
electrical outlet issue to the
manager's attention:
Clottey co-chaired the
town's July 4 celebration with
Dodd.
Clottey said she didn't
think work should be stalled
or that businesses in the area
should have to be put through
additional congestion. "Let's
not crucify anyone because
someone missed the outlets,"
she said.
"This is government run
awry," Vice Mayor Jerry Mc-
Intee said. "Esther is reacting
to a commissioner rapidly.,
The project is ahead of sched-
ule, and it looks great."
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone asked whatThe added
net cost would be.
Colon said the total cost
to add the outlets, change the
road and put in a required
dune was $13,298.
The road change involves
cutting into the median and
widening the curve so there's
less of a bottleneck when
drivers are turning at the end


of Commercial.
Dodd said he wasn't trying
to stop the changes. He ques-
tioned who did the electrical
review.
"I'm not mad at the town
manager. Somebody slipped
up. Whether it's the architect
or who, I don't know," he
said. "I'm very happy Birute
found it. But when something
comes at us at the 11th hour,
I'm trying to prevent it again.
I'm not making a personal
attack on the town manger
or anyone. We need to learn
from our mistakes so plans
meet the town needs."
Dodd said he had never
seen the pavilion plans until
they were provided in the
backup for this vote.


Mayor Roseann Minnet
said there were four electri-
cal outlets in the original
proposal. After review, it was
determined that would not be
enough for what the pavilion
in intended. Staff knew the
median would need to be
cut back, but they felt it was
better to have the pavilion
contractor do it to save money
rather than have the town do
it, she said.
Colon said the town is try-
ing to minimize road closure
and interruptions to business
as much as possible. "We
have high season, and we
have turtle season in a week
or so. We hope we don't have
to close that road for a long
time."

focus on how the spiritual
leaders can serve the citizens
of Pompano Beach in a uni-
fied way," says Fisher. "I be-
lieve in prayer personally, and
it's my wish that those who
want to support this event will
join me."
While the event has the
mayor's name on it, Fisher
added that the event is not
city-sponsored, nor are any
city funds used for the break-
fast.
This year's speaker is Cor-
win Anthony, who was an All
Pac-10 tight end for UCLA in
the late 1980s. He graduated
with an economics degree
in 1991. He went on to play
briefly in the NFL with the
LA Rams, NY Jets and Green
Bay Packers.
In 1996 Corwin joined
the staff of Promise Keepers
where he served in the Field
Ministry Division for four
years, helping churches estab-
lish men's ministries. In 2000
was ordained as a minister
of the gospel and he and his
wife, Kim, joined the staff of
Athletes in Action to serve
as chaplain for the Miami
Dolphins. He and his family
currently reside in Davie.
"I look forward to Cor-
win's message to this city,"
said Fisher, who went on to
thank Carmen Jones and the
Historical Society-for the
hours of planning and work to
continue the Mayor's Break-
fast.


Temple Sholom's new
Rabbi, David Mark, and
The Rev. Dr. O'Neil Dozier,
Worldwide Christian Center
will also speak at the event.
Highlights of the morning
will include the Blanche Ely
Chorus, Silent Worshippers
and the John Knox Village
"Villagers," a male choir.
Students in the culinary
arts program at Blanche Ely
High School will assist clergy
and elected officials in serving
the meals.
Tickets are $20 per person.

Art students begin work on design competition in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Students from the Art Institute of
Fort Lauderdale toured El Mar Drive
in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea this week.
These young artists wanted to get a
first hand view of the area before they
compete for the town's artistic choice
for a pavilion on this popular Drive on
the beach.
After lunch on Monday at Aruba's,


20 students began walking tour of the
area followedby a project briefing at
Jarvis Hall.
The town's Master Plan Steer-
ing Committee will recommend five
designs for the town commission's
consideration, and the commission
will select its preferred design.
The aim of the project is to beau-
tify El Mar Drive and make it pedes-
trian-friendly, according to competi-
tion materials. The street is an area

walkers, joggers and tourists.
The town received $1 million from
developers of the Oriana, a luxury
condominium on El Mar Drive, to be
used to make El Mar more pedestrian-
friendly.
"Most of the students hadn't been
to Lauderdale-By-The-Sea," said
Sandra Booth, co-chair of the project.
"They enjoyed the tour, and many
stayed until dark. The next day sev-
eral were already back interviewing
people on the street."
The project, from Pine Avenue to
Palm Avenue, should contain shade
and shelter, seating areas, landscaping
and irrigation and gazebos and resting
areas.
A cash prize of $500 will be pre-


sented to the design contest winner;
$300 for second place and $200 for
third place.
The MPSC plans to meet with the
students Monday at the Art Institute
to see their preliminary design plans
and provide input. The top five will be
presented at the commission March
24.
