Tough standards

approved by DB

Commission
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach Commissioners
passed a stringent ethics code Tuesday
night that applies to city commission-
ers, candidates for the commission, the
city manager and those doing business
with the city. The new rules require
disclosures from any relative of an
elected official doing business here as
well as disclosure of previous cam-
paign contributions from anyone seek-
ing land use changes or development
approvals from the commission. .
Attorney Tom Connick, who au-
thored a draft ordinance, wrote that the
"standards are higher than merely not
acting illegally." Addressing the com-
mission Tuesday he said, "A strict code
instills an atmosphere of honesty fills

Green Light Go in Pompano Beach offers financially-

starved cities a clean way to save tax-payer dollars


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach has a budget of
about $200 million to cover ev-
erything from beach lifeguards to
road maintenance and everything in
between.
The electricity bill averages about
$3 million annually to keep air con-
ditioners running, telephones ringing
and street lamps lit.
This week, the state's Public Ser-
'vice Commission, or PSC, reiterated
to the governor that citizens can make
a difference in the amount of energy
consumed. PSC Chairman Matthew


M. Carter II, said,
"Each of us can make / '
a positive difference to
Florida's energy future
by choosing an energy
efficient lifestyle." .
Vince and Gerri Ann
Capotosto, a Pompano L. 3
Beach couple, would
probably add to that
statement and suggest
that not jusi residents, .
but cities as well should do everything
to "make a positive difference" in
energy consumption.
And they say they have the answer
to reduce this city's electricity bill


significantly-maybe by half.
The first step would be to replace all
lighting fixtures for street lamps with
LED lighting.
This husband and wife team are
partners in a national company, Green
Light Go. Its mission is to bring envi-
ronmentally safe lighting solutions to
the market.
Green Light Go is already replacing
streetlights in cities with LED light-
ing, an energy solution that requires
less than half the wattage needed by
conventional lights.
Vince says these cities are saving

After a long wait, Deerfield Beach Bucks new stadium is underway


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
After a two-year process-
involving the city and the Bro-
ward County School Board,
the new state-of-the-art sta-
dium at Deerfield Beach High


School is under construction.
An official groundbreaking
was held last Friday. The
hope is that the Bucks, district
football champions for the last
eight years, will be hosting
home games in the 4,000-seat
stadium this fall.


The $4.2 million stadium
and eight-lane track is a joint
venture of the two govern-
mental entities. The City of
Deerfield Beach is serving
as the contract manager; the
School Board is paying the
bills.
The project was delayed


when the city did not agree to
some language in the contract,
but commission approvals
were given a year ago. The
School Board took another
year to put its approval on the
project. A similar contract was
drawn for the new Coconut
Creek High School Stadium.


Ely High will be the next
school in North Broward to
get the new athletic facility.
Friday, DBHS Princi-
pal John Marlow addressed
a crowd of dignitaries and
students who gathered for the

Turtle season arrives in Florida, time to


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Turtle season opened on
March, and Gumbo Limbo
marine conservationist, Dr.
Kirt Rusenko hopes every-
one will pay attention to a
200,000 million-year-old rite
that will take place on the
Florida coast.
The interesting thing is
that these ancient reptiles are
right on time.
The leatherbacks have
already landed on Hillsboro
Beach, and their nests are
marked with bright yellow
signs.
Soon Pompano Beach
will have the same signs.
Rusenko warns beach
walkers to avoid touching the
stakes or walking over the
nests--hundreds of eggs lay
beneath the sand.
Early risers will see turtle
tracks from the ocean to the
nest.
Night walkers may see
turtles come from the ocean
late at night. As a protected
species, it's illegal to disturb
them. Rusenko says if walk-
ers just stop and stand still,
the turtle will probably go
right by and start laying eggs.
But if frightened, she will go
back into the water.
Loggerheads will debut
in May, and in June, the green
turtles arrive.
Gestation period is
about 60 days when young
hatchlings emerge and move
toward light.
Turtle laws prohibit light-
ing that reflects light on the

beach. He urges condominium
groups to use LED lights.
"It's so important to have
the lighting properly installed
so they don't go back into the
road.
The state estimates that 20
percent of the hatchings are
killed as a result of irrespon-
sible lighting.
"The light attracts the
hatchlings and has for 200
million years. Before com-
mercial lighting, hatchlings
followed starlight reflected
on the ocean. They remain
instinctively drawn to light.
That instinct is so strong they
will literally walk into a bon
fire. That has happened in the
past," Rusenko said.
Beach dwellers should do
what they can so that no light
on the property that can be
seen on the beach.
Rusenko suggests beach

dwellers go out and look.
There will be problems if any
light is visible from the beach.
Most turtle laws require
people to draw their blinds at
night.
Statistics are varied re-
garding the future of these sea
animals.
Florida is the second
largest nesting population
of loggerheads in the world.
loggerhead populations have
dropped 50 percent over the
last ten years.
But leatherbacks and
green turtles are on the in-
crease. All three remain on the
endangered list.
Besides being magnificent
animals, Rusenko calls the sea
turtles "canaries of the ocean.
They point out things that
will keep us and the ocean
healthy."
But they pay a price for

ver lights and
finding pollution.
"They have a disease
called fibropatiloma, a cancel
that results in a cauliflower-
type growth on their skins.
When the growth covers their
eyes, they die," he says.
At Indian River lagoon,
near Sabastion, 60 percent of

the turtles have the disease.
"If people respect the
r turtles, the best thing they
can do is learn about them,"
Rusenko says.

North Broward Medical Center Auxiliary

raises the bar for dedicated volunteers


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
North Broward Medical Cen-
ter CEO, Pauline Grant, says, "Our
volunteer auxiliary members are
angels. Those radiant ladies and gents
go about helping all over the hospital
every day in more ways than any of
us realize. I know that their president,
Jo D'Espies puts in more hours every
week than any of our full time em-
ployees."
Grant refers to an amazing group
of volunteers, 181 men and women,
who make up the hospital auxiliary,
Their goal is to support the facility
with labor and money and they have
done so ever since their beginning 60
years ago.
Auxiliary President Jo D'Espies,
assisted by First Vice President
Suzanne Carlson and Second Vice
President Barbara Esty currently run
the show with the efficiency of a big
business and the end result is impres-
sive. The 94 active volunteer mem-
bers give the center approximately
56,000 hours a year. They work in
the gift shop, area offices, ER, Cancer
Center, S.I.C.U., M.I.C.U., pharmacy,
library, patient escort and more.
Two women, Betty Arcelle and
Jean Eaker handle, all of the fund rais-
ers for the scholarship fund as well
as the scholarship fund itself. They
aim for and usually succeed in rais-
ing $20,000 a year. Last year, the
auxiliary spent $14,000 on scholarship
renewals for previous winners and
awarded $8,000 in new scholarships.
All scholarships are awarded to local
high school seniors who are pursuing a
medical career and have a high grade
point average.
"The auxiliary is always look-
ing for new members," Esty says.
"We have an orientation for new
volunteers. Each new member is
interviewed and placed in an area best
suited to the volunteer's talents and
interests. All of our volunteers must
attend an orientation once each year to
be updated on hospital protocol. All
volunteers pay $7 a year dues. They
also must purchase a $5 pink jacket
which must be worn when volunteer-
ing."
D'Espies says, "About three years
ago, the Auxiliary pledged $350,000
to the hospital. We're still $100,000

cal CenterAuxiliary are left to right: BarbaraEsty,

short. We gave $50,000 at the end of
June which is the end of our current
year. The money comes from the gift
shop which nets about $50,000 a year.
Six of our volunteers are gift shop
buyers and many more keep the shop
up and running from 8:30 a.m. until
7:30 p.m. five days a week. On Satur-
day and Sunday, it's open from 8:30
a.m. until 4 p.m."
The auxiliary usually has one big
fund raiser each year. This year it's a-
rummage sale scheduled for April 24
and 25 and will be held in the confer-
ence center.
Carlson says, "We welcome dona-
tions so we hope people will start sav-
ing clean, usable items which we will
appreciate receiving the week before
the sale."
In December, Dillards had a 2-day
retail sale in the Hospital lobby.
It was a-huge success with em-
ployees, volunteers, and visitors.
D'Espies smiles saying, "We hope to
realize $10,000 from this, event. For
us, it was a windfall."
The auxiliary is proud of its
contributions to the hospital which are

too numerous to name. However, from
1960 to 2006, total funds given to the
hospital are estimated to be in excess
of $5,626,050.
Service hours given in that time
period are over 4,642,391.
D'Espies was a banker before she
retired. Now, she puts in more hours
as a volunteer than she did in a career
work week. An active member since
1993, she's on hand and working in
the hospital six and sometimes seven
days a week from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30
p.m. "I do it because I enjoy it," she
says. "It's what I do, along with taking
care of my grandchildren who often
volunteer right here with me in every
department: My grandson, Karter
D'Espies has over 140 volunteer hours
in and he's just starting the ninth
grade."
Vice President Carlson volun-
teered with the Red Cross at the hos-
pital before joining the auxiliary five
years ago. She's the computer whiz
and is in the office twice a week.
Second Vice President Esty
worked in the gift shop and at the
information desk before accepting this
office. Now she's assisting in auxiliary
administration two days a week and
more when needed.
Thank you all for what you do for
the hospital and your community. For

District 4 voters need to keep

Woodrow Poitier as commissioner
The Pelican endorses Woodrow "Woody" Poitier as District 4 Commis-
sioner.
Voters have plenty of reasons to keep Poitier in office on March 10.
Times are tough now, but they are expected to get tougher. Poitier has spent
only six months on the dais, and he says it has been an "amazing" learning expe-
rience. But that experience is needed now in the city and in District 4.
Poitier has his finger on the pulse of District 4. He was born and educated in
Pompano Beach, and he is the owner of his family's long-time business, Poitier
Funeral Home. He served Pompano Beach as a fire fighter/paramedic for 22
years.
In District 4, Poitier plans to see the Blanche Ely Museum to become a
landmark that families will visit and enjoy. He has ideas that include offering
Ely students opportunities to serve as volunteers at the museum, a good way for
young people to learn the history of this courageous woman who changed educa-
tion for everyone in Pompano Beach.
Poitier says crime in District 4 rates high as a problem, destroying neighbor-
hoods and bringing fear into homes where peace and tranquility belong. He is
pushing for FP&L to replace street lights with bulbs and bullet proof covers. He
wants to eliminate the dark places where he says the drug trade thrives.
Poitier encourages neighbors to call Broward Sheriff's Office to report ille-
gal dumping, a common crime that brings blight and vermin to District 4 streets.
He adds that when neighbors stick together with no tolerance to dumping, there
are arrests, confiscations of vehicles and in some cases rewards for the caller.
Poitier has been a successful businessman in District 4, and he knows that
good stewardship of money is part of that success. That is knowledge Poitier can
apply to grants and other funds to improve andenhance the lives of the residents
of District 4. This man will not be throwing money at projects and walking
away.
All citizens of Pompano Beach will benefit from returning Poitier to the
dais. All citizens are facing a tough future with less money.
We also know that Poitier supports the redevelopment of Martin Luther King
Boulevard. The idea is the lynchpin for economic viability in this district.
There are public funds in the Community Redevelopment Agency, or CRA,
that can only be spent in District 4. With the proposed Broward County Transit
station planned in District 4 on the Boulevard, that redevelopment already has an
anchor.
Poitier's voice must be heard on the dais to call this development into being.
He must not tolerate silence, procrastination or interference in seeing this project
move quickly. Once the Boulevard is ready for development, business will bring
needed jobs to both the young and old in District 4. Prosperity will run crime out
of the area. Prosperity will defeat frustration. Prosperity will call for the return of
dignity, and prosperity will erase the signposts of foreclosure.
Voters should stand behind Woodrow Poitier, not only at the ballot box but
also at city meetings to give this commissioner voice and courage to see redevel-
opment and all that comes with it become a reality.
Vote for Woodrow Poitier, District 4, on March 4.


CORRECTION
Students from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale are taking part in a de-
sign competition-to come up with the best concept for beautifying El Mar Drive
in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and making it more pedestrian friendly. The top
five designs will be presented to the town commission March 24. The competi-
tion has nothing to do with the beach pavilion, as incorrectly stated in the Feb.
27 Pelican, due to an editing error. Students from the Art Institute took part
in a beach pavilion design completion two years ago. The pavilion is nearing
completion at the end of Commercial Boulevard.

The winners of Tuesday's
election in Hillsboro Beach
will deal with a major beach
nourishment project and face
decisions on the future of the
town's water supply. Run-
ning for re-election are Mayor
Carmen McGarry and Vice
Mayor Dan Dodge. Seeking
to regain a seat he left in 2004
is Lee Bennett. Making her
second bid for public office is
Clare Schubert who last year
headed up the town's Charter
Review Committee. The four
are seeking a two-year term
for one of three commission
seats; the mayor and vice
mayor are elected by the com-
mission.
Nourishment of the beach


at the north end of Hillsboro
is in the permitting stages and
is projected for winter of this
year. Engineers were recently
hired to come up with design
plans for the town's 40-year-
old water plant as well as
methods of financing the
improvements.
Both are huge capital proj-
ects for the beachfront town
of 2,500 residents.
Lee Bennett, 57, served
one term on the commission,
2006-08. He chose not to seek
re-election in order to care
for a sick relative in another
state. Now free of that obliga-
tion, his chief priorities are the
water plant and its infrastruc-
ture and finding a fair method
of assessing for the next
beach revetment project. He
also favors developing a long

Pup'e Cutz pet grooming salon provides

comfortable, stress free grooming and care


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Maria Redman, owner
and licensed groomer, has
created a spotless,-fresh
smelling salon where pets
are treated like club members
in a fitness center. First time
pets get a photo I.D. card and
earn points for each visit.
After nine grooming visits,
the tenth is free. And satis-
fied pet owners get points for
referring other pet owners to
the salon.
The system works for
Redman, who is proud to
have 350 customers ini the
short time she has owned the
salon. Pup'e Cutz is located
in P6mpaiio Beach at 124 S .-
Federa1l.H4v., Unit 2, just
east of'thecomene on the north
side of south second street.
There's plenty of parking in
the back for clients of this
salon. Redman is confident
that her success is due to her
skills with animals whom
she says, "I treat like family
members and care for them
with the same regard. My
own dog, Princess, was my
inspiration. I pamper her with
the best, natural products and
do the same for other people's
pets. I take time to acclimate
them to the grooming table.
-Many are frightened from
past experiences. I make them
comfortable and as stress free
as possible."
The owner has a very
colorful and varied business
history which recounts. "I've
owned a 4-star restaurant in
Enterprise, Alabama, man-
aged officers' clubs in Eu-
.rope and Panama and had a
construction business with
my ex-husband in Pompano
Beach. Now that my three
children are out of college,
I decided to open this salon
because I love cats and dogs.

Redman prepares Tobi for his grooming. She says, "He's a rescue dog who was
very nervous and easily agitated when he first came to me. Now he's an angel
dog. [Photo by Phyllis J. Neuberger]


I went to school, earned my
groomer's license and the rest
is history."
-Michael Wilson dropped
by with his three dogs, a
beagle mutt, a Carine terrier
and a beagle. All three were
eager to get inside the white
gate to play with the other
dogs and Maria.
"They like coming here,"
Wilson said. "Two will be
bathed and one shaved down.
I really like the way Maria
handles my dogs, and I espe-
cially like that they are free


to roam around and are not
caged."
Ashley Pixton agrees .
saying, "Tobi visits Maria
every month to be bathed,
groomed and made handsome.
He loves Maria and so do I
because she's sweet to him
and he trusts her."
Redman admits that Tobi
is a special favorite because
he was one of her first pet
clients. "Tobi is a rescue dog,"
she explains. "He was very
nervous and easily agitated in
the beginning. Now he's an

Advice for

pet owners
Your pet has living body which
needs care just as people do.
When it comes to grooming and
bathing, each pet has its own
requirements.
"I use a holistic approach with
natural products and loving,
tender care."
Open from 8 a.m. until done,
Monday, through Saturday.
Special times will be acdom-
modated. 954-946-7884

angel dog."
Pup'e Cuts offers
many services
Full Grooming entails
styling, bath, nails, ears, sani-
tary area and feet.
Shave Downs are very
popular for both cats and dogs
because of Florida's heat and
humidity. Pets are more com-
fortable and owners like not
having to deal with shedding.
Full Bath includes nails,
ears, sanitary cleaning if
needed and the bath.
"I do offer a special for
regular customers which
includes a bath every two.
to three weeks with a good
blowout eliminating hair tan-
gling," Redman says.
She adds, "We do day
care for working clients. To
many pets, this is a second
home because I've cared for
them since they were puppies.
I also do very limited over
night pet sitting as an accom-
modation for regulars. We
also walk and care for pets
whose owners prefer to have
them remain at home. And
we do pick up and delivery on
request."
Asked if she sells any prod-
ucts, Maria says, "No. If a pet
requires a meal while here, the
owner provides it. Of course
I have treats, but they are just
that."

Continued from page 1
in the gaps in the state law."
Like other codes being
prepared by other governmen-
tal entities, Deerfield's code
prohibits commissioners with
a conflict from participating
in any discussion of the issue.
The new code goes as
far as to prohibit relatives,
clients, a substantial creditor,
unions, or civic groups from
gaining a financial benefit as


a result of a commissioner's
vote, unless the affiliation is
disclosed.
Elected officials are
prohibited from representing
clients before other govern-
mental bodies for two years.
after leaving offices.
The code prohibits sexual
relationships between elected
officials and city employees.
If undisclosed conflicts
are discovered, an action tak-
en by the commission can be
voided. Penalties if convicted
of violating the code include


reimbursement of salary and
benefits, public reprimands at
two commission meetings and
a posting on the city website
for six months.
Complaints are assigned
to an outside counsel for
review.
The code passed 3 to 2
with Mayor Sylvia Poitier and
Commissioner Gloria Battle
dissenting.
Battle said she was
concerned with the financial
impact of the ordinance and
said it contained civil rights
implications. A former school
teacher, she also offered to
edit what she called "gram-
matical errors."
Mayor Poitier said she
was opposed to the speed
with which the ordinance was
approved, adding it contained
"things that no one in their
right mind would subject
their families too."
Some residents expressed
concern with passage of the
ordinance before a new com-
mission is seated. Joe Miller,
a candidate for the commis-
sion, said public input is
needed and that it was not
fair for the appointed com-
missioners, Battle and Col-
leen DiDonato, to make such
an important decision.
Don Cle-veland, a may-
oral candidate, said the new
ordinance "really does have
the scent of lawyers and cre-
ates a judicial process, ".but
added election of the "old
guard"4eould mean no action *
would be taken.
Bernie Parness, presi-
dent of the Deerfield Beach
Democratic Club, urged the
"yes" vote saying "no one
should object to scrutiny."
Commissioner Marty Po-
pelsky pointed out that future
commissions could add or
delete items in the ordinance
but said;, "It is a start."
The chief proponent of
establishing the ethics code,
Commissioner Pam Militello
said, "It's long overdue. I
think we'd want this. It's a
chance to do something to
be proud of. Nothing in this
code is detrimental to any
one who is ethical."

needs of the agricultural inter-
ests that provided the econom-
ic foundation of Pompano.
Until 1939. dow nto'wnr
Pompano was also the loca-


tion of the farmers market,
where local growers came
to pack, sell and ship their
produce to markets across the
nation.
Many of Pompano Beach's
oldest commercial buildings
are located this area, including
the Bank of Pompano, Bailey
Hotel. Pompano Mercantile
Company and Hamilton's
Pharmacy, dating back to the
early 1920s.

thousands of dollars in
electrical bills.
On top of that, maintenance
bills are cut even more as
these LED lights have a
lifetime of up to 14 years.
So if a huge energy solution


is staring cities and businesses
in their faces, what's the
holdup?
Vince says it's all about
money.
"The companies that are
benefiting from selling power
have put up a lot of road
blocks and barriers [for us] to
implement the energy saving


efforts," he says.
He adds that energy
companies are "protecting
their industry. It's like we are
the iPod in the record industry
before the iPods took over."
Gerri Ann compares LED
lighting solutions to cell
phones when they were
poised to replace land phones
and talkie movies,
a phenomenon that
detractors said would
never catch on.
"This is a complete
new technology. It's
Solid State Lighting, or
SSL, and it is there for
the new companies and
new pioneers. Nothing
will stop all lighting from
becoming solid state. It's
who, how and when. We're at
the beginning of that battle,
and it's exciting."
SSL technology is one of
the technologies we use to
reduce energy. I have to stress
that we are not an LED sales
organization. LED lighting
is only one of the recipes for

. _


reducing energy, and it's a big
one.
But even this solution has
its problems, Vince explains.
Solid State Lighting is more
similar to an audio amplifier
than from traditional light
fixtures. And although LEDs
have been around for 44
years, cities want to see a
background of lighting
experience, something
that is still new to the
industry.
Problems with tra-
ditional lighting
"A traditional
light fixture is a gas
encapsulated vacuum
that is ignited with a high
voltage strike. LED lights
don't require that strike
The incandescent light bulb,
patented originally by Thomas
Edison, and still widely used
produces light that is only five
percent efficient. The other
95 percent of the energy from
this bulb is wasted energy in
the form of heat. That's why
one incandescent light bulb
works for the "Easy Bake

Oven," a child's play oven
that bakes cookies and small
cakes.
"Five percent efficiency is
really painful," says Vince.
"It's not so bad when it's used
in a house for a few hours.
But when these bulbs are
used in commercial buildings
or garages for 24 hours, it
becomes very wasteful and
expensive."
In addition, Congress will
ban incandescent light bulbs,
starting with the 100-watt
bulb by 2012.
But even the newer
Compact Fluorescent Lamps,
or CFLs, which have a higher
efficiency and longer lifetime,
have also found problems in
the United States.
Since Occupational Safety
and Health Administration, or
OSHA, requirements are so
stringent for the manufacture
of CFLs, they must be
produced outside the States.
Because the bulbs contain a
"cocktail" of gases, including

mercury, they are not advised
for use in children's rooms.
And if broken they become a
hazardous cleanup problem.
[See insert]
"If CFLs had to meet OSHA
standards, every bulb would
cost $50," says Gerri. "And
they are not supposed to be
placed in the garbage."
There are several programs
in every county for disposal of
CFLs.
Vince says CFL disposals
also cost taxpayers.
"What do we do?" asks
Vince. "We have traded
mercury containments for
better efficiency."
Vincente adds that the FDA
has found no problems with
LEDs.
LEDs are diodes or a
computer chip crystal that
is grown on a sapphire. The
electron creates a light with
no gas, and it's 91 percent
efficient. It's not a bulb. It's a
fixture."
He adds that LEDs last up


for 70,000 hours, seven times
the life of an incandescent
bulb.
But as the LED lighting
program is still in an
evolutionary state, it is
too expensive for most
households.
Yet some cities have already
taken steps to use LED
lighting for streetlights and
garages where continuous and
brighter lights are needed.
While the savings are
significant, Vincent says the
evolutionary state of LED has,
not reached the point of being,
cost effective for residential
housing.
In fact, Green Light Go
customers are municipalities,
condominiums and large
parking garage owners.
Condominiums benefit from
LED lighting in areas where
continual lighting is needed.
But Vince explains that
it's not just lighting that the
world needs to consider for
efficiency. He points to the
Hoover Dam where water
itself has been harnessed
to produce electricity and


a grid that is incapable of
transferring the power to other
parts of the country.
When asked if Florida
with all its sunlight should
be pushing solar, Vince says
a smarter solution would be
to buy land in Arizona or the
Mojave Desert and build solar
stations that would contribute
energy to a grid that could
serve the entire nation. That
way Florida would contribute
energy to the grid and draw
energy from it.
For now, Gerry and Vince
understand the reticence
of some city leaders who


are having to deal with
energy problems and unable
to understand this new
technology.
Coral Springs, just west of
Pompano Beach has already
purchased and installed two
LED street lights for a bus
stop.
Some cities are leasing
the lights and saving enough
money in electricity to not only
pay the lease, but also end up
with additional money.
"We come in with a package.
In some cases we have grants
to fund these projects," says
Gerry. "It's a learning curve."


Safe Disposal of Compact
Fluorescent Lamps, CFLs
Fluorescent Tubes and CFLs contain small amounts
of mercury which need to be disposed of through the
County's HHW program. Other small mercury-contain-
ing devices such as thermometers and thermostats are
also accepted.
If you accidentally break a fluorescent bulb or tube, safely
dispose of it by following these guidelines: 1) open a
window and immediately ventilate the room, allowing at
least 30 minutes before cleanup; 2) Wear disposable gloves to pick
up fragments and place them into a double bag; 3) take materials to
an HHW facility 4) wash your hands thoroughly. Source Broward

Another arm of this
company are energy auditors
who often find cities are
overpaying their electrical
bills.
Green Light Go is now
working with Miami Beach
with an energy conservation
report.
But there are government
leaders who won't budge
traditional lighting, and that
bothers Vince.
"Politically, it's to their
benefit to not do anything. It's
the safer road. It's a stay in
office, keep your job, get your
pension mentality. We know
these cities are hurting. We
can help," says Vince.
Green Light Go offers
educational programs for
groups to explain the new
technology. They make
presentations to cities, and
they help find grants to assist
organizations that are ready
to leap into a more efficient
world.

crime and redevelop-
ment.
"We need lights all
over the place, and we
need lights with cov-
ers over them so they
can't be shot out. You
can always tell where
people are selling drugs
because the area is so
dark."
Poitier says that
six new BSO deputies
have been added to the
District 4 and the com-
mission is preparing
to renew the contract.
"This gives us a lot of
leverage," Poiter said.
Poiter added that
churches in the area may
be willing to help "take ,
this community back."
Redevelopment
plans for Martin Luther
King Boulevard include
building a viable eco-
nomic corridor for the
community. That cor-
ridor would fit in with
the Broward County bus
terminal that is already
planned for the corner'..
of Dixie Highway and
MLK Boulevard.
Poitier says he would
like to see the Boulevard
redeveloped with busi-
nesses on the south side

Boulevard.
A third issue in Dis-
trict4 is illegal dump-
ing. District 4 has been
the recipient of illegal
dumping of lawn cut-
tings, trash and appli-
ances from companies
paid to haul trash but
*,instead of taking trash
to the waste company
where they must pay a
fee, the trash ends up on
property in District 4.
"Now we are turn-
ing in people who are
dumping illegally," says
Poitier. "If we catch
them, we call BSO, and
they go to jail. -
Joseph Wells, 34.
and also an Ely grad
received a vocational
certificate from Florida
International University
in Miami. Wells teaches
vocational and broad-
casting communication
at Pompano Middle
School.
Wells says he is
concerned about jobs
especially for men and
women who have served
time in jail.
"We have a big
problem with felons who
can't get jobs. The city
has funds to create jobs
for these people. Eco-
nomic development pro-


grams allow businesses
who hire felons or others
to receive funds to pay
their salaries for up to
five years.
"It's so important
that when felons get out,
they deserve a second
chance. They go back on
the street comers if they
can't get jobs. If we can
keep people employed,
we will lower our fore-
closure rate," said Wells.
Another issue for
Wells is the Golden
Acres housing develop-
ment where he says there
are many problems.
"Homeowners have
mildew in their homes.
-The city has funds
through the housing
authority to clean up the
mildew. When people let
me go into their homes, I
still see blue tarps op the
roofs from damage they
received from Hurricane
Wilma in 2005. I will
focus on Golden Acres."
Wells is an advocate
to keep taxes low in the
city. He says the way
to do that is to cut back
on the city's high salary .
9jqbs.
"If District 4 voters
give me ar-opportunity
to serve the people,"'---
promise that the people
will come first in every
decision that I make."
