The-Sea vice

mayor takes

enforcer

Restaurant owners call
VP's actions 'harassment'

By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
"We have a fear. When he targets
something, he doesn't let go," said
Louis Marchelos, co-owner with his
brother Spiro of Athena's Restaurant,
Anglin's Fishing Pier and other retail
properties in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
Marchelos refers to LBTS Vice
Mayor Jerrm McIntee. whose outbreaks
on the commission dais have left others
shaking their heads.
Recently, McIntee tried to stop a
commission meeting to complain that
someone was on a cell phone. As if in
tandem, the vice mayor's wife walked
to where Louis was "text-messaging"
the former owner of the fishing pier.
"He's on the phone," the vice
mayor's wife called out.

Lighthouse Point, FDOT

commissioners make plans

for solar LED lights
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF

Night bike rides may become more popular in Lighthouse
Point when the city installs new solar Light Emitting Diode. or
LED, lights along pedestrian walkways.
This week commissioners agreed to seek state funding to
pay for the installation and fixtures.
Mary Pryde, city public works, explains that the final imple-
mentation is about two and one-half years off, but the applica-
tion for $500,000 funding from FDOT is due April 3.
The funding is part of a five-year transportation cycle intend-
ed to promote use of mass transportation, walking or biking.
Pryde says that lighting pedestrian walkways will encourage
residents to meet those goals.
The pedestrian lights will be 12 to 15-feet high with a solar
shield that collects energy for a battery that provides electricity
for the LEDs.
The batteries have a life of up to five years, and the LED
lights last for 100,000 hours or up to 20 years, depending on
how they are set.
The funding will allow for 125 solar lights and poles at a cost
of $4,000 each.
Some streets targeted for the new lights are Lighthouse
Drive, Marina Drive, Sample Road and 44 Street.

New trash service in LBTS could save $2 million


Town ready to

negotiate new

contract with

Choice Waste
Services
By Judy Vik


PELICAN WRITER
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
commissioners may be oust-
ing Waste Management for a
cheaper trash hauler.
The vote was 4 to 0 with
Mayor Roseanne Minnet
recusing herself due to a busi-
ness conflict.
Choice Waste Services
proposal included Residential:
single-family-duplex: $17.92
per month. Multi-family:
$16.97 per month.
Waste Management's
proposals were Residential:
single-family-duplex: $28.45
per month; Multi-family:
$26.99 per month.


Waste Pro was the second
choice and All-Services, third.
The other bidder was South-
ern Waste System.
Grant Smith, an attorney
representing Plantation-based
Choice Waste Services, told
commissioners it was good
public policy to award the
contract to the lowest bidder.
"The others can't touch our
price," he said.
Neal Rodrigue, Choice


president, said the firm will
save the town in excess of
$2 million over the five-year
contract. "We drove every
street and visited every busi-
ness" prior to submitting the
proposal, he said.
The firm is South-Florida
based and already services a
portion of Fort Lauderdale.
"This is a logical fit for us,"
Rodrigue said.
By selecting Choice,


Check out the Ferraris and

write one for Kids in Distress
"Paint the Town Red," a party to benefit Kids in Distress, is
scheduled from 6 to 10 p.m., April 2, at 101 Ocean Restaurant,
at 101 E. Commercial Blvd., Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
Thirty Ferraris will be on display with live music and a disc
jockey.
"We hope everyone will come along and enjoy the evening.
It's pretty cool and should be a bit of fun," said Joe Brennan,
restaurant manager.
It's a free event to raise funds for Kids in Distress. Call
954-776-8101.


Rodrigue said the town would
show a 35 percent reduction in
price from its current contract
with Waste Management. "To
me that seems like a large sav-
ings," he said, noting that ev-
ery resident will save money.
During questioning by


Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee,
Rodrigue said the trucks to be
used in LBTS would be less
than one year old. Their ter-
minal is in Pompano Beach,
where they have 35 trucks.

Joan Bady, Deerfield Beach, begins 32nd year

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN WRITER
Every Thursday Joan Bady leaves
her retirement community in Deer-
field Beach and drives to Insight for
the Blind at 1401 NE 4 Ave. in Fort
Lauderdale. It's a labor of love for
Bady who has put in four hours every
Thursday for 31 years, logging in
5,900 hours of contributed service.
Asked how she got involved with
this all volunteer organization that
produces Talking Books and Maga-
zines for blind adults and children
on assignment from the Library of
Congress, she says, "My mother lost
her eyesight as an adult. She dealt
with blindness well thanks to a seeing
eye dog and books on tape, which she
enjoyed for at least 10 years."
Bady goes on to explain that
books were on records then and if you
had to stop, you hoped no one would
move the handle while you were away.
"After my mother's death, I wanted to
pay back. I read about Insight, volun-
teered, and I've been a part of the team
ever since."
For many years she worked the


the actual recording. "It's also a slow
and painstaking job," she says, "but I
like it."
Before marrying her husband,
Daniel, she was an economist, doing
sales forecasting and budget control'
for Lever Brothers in New York. When
she married and moved to Delaware,
she did substitute teaching.
"We moved to Florida to retire in
1976," she said. "I began with In-
sight shortly after. It was a fairly new
organization then. It has since become
very sophisticated with state of the art
equipment."
They've enjoyed their retirement
she says, adding, After years of
golfing, yard care and gardening, we
moved into the Forum, a retirement
community in Deerfield. We partici-
pate in the many activities there, and
we take great trips each year. So far,
we've visited most of Europe, Africa,
South America and Australia. Daniel
takes movies and when we return, he
does travelogues for our community.
I still enjoy my time at Insight and I
encourage others to join us. There are

Harassment
Continued from page 1
Only the presence of a BSO
deputy cut the scene short.
"The constant harassment
doesn't seem to stop," said
Louis "Whatever we do, he's
trying to block us," Spiro said
of McIntee. "He's creating
obstacles and deterrents. We
have given olive branches,
and they have given us
thorns. It's selective discrimi-
nation."
One such branch came
when the Marchelos Brothers
agreed to open up their pier
bathrooms for use during the
town's Easter sunrise service.
"Twenty-four hours later we
received notice from the town
that we must immediately
provide five port-a-potties
outside the Athena Restaurant
during our special "Music by
the Sea" event every Saturday
night. The event, "A Night
with Elvis," is co-sponsored
by the nearby 101 Oceans
Restaurant.
Asked who made the
request, Louis said, "Code
enforcement said they were
only the messengers."
Despite that incident, Louis
said he would still honor the
Easter service agreement.
During one commission
meeting, McIntee voted
against the Marchelos broth-
ers opening a road that would
allow better egress from their
popular pier restaurant. And
in an off-handed remark Mc-
Intee said, "[the road] would
be a good site for beach
bathrooms."
McIntee went further to di-
rect the town attorney to look
into that possibility.
Late last year, McIntee
visited the Athena Restau-
rant. Louis remembers that
night well. "He was loud and
obnoxious. Customers were
very upset. He embarrassed
us and himself, and when the
people found out he was the
vice mayor, a couple wrote
letters (of complaint) to the
town."


Mclntee's issue that night
was Athena's parking spaces,
claiming the restaurant did not
have enough spaces for the
number of patio tables.
Despite the town charter
that prohibits commissioners
to interfere with.town em-
ployees, McIntee complained
to the town's code enforce-
ment department, and on Dec.
31, a code inspector came to
Athena and said they had to
remove five tables from the
patio. They were told to ap-
ply for an amended sidewalk
permit. Louis pleaded with
three town employees to give
them five days to remove the
tables, and the three agreed.
"We shook. hands and said
Happy New Year,"-Louis said.
"An hour later Jeff Bowman,


development services director.
came back and said the tables
would have to be removed."
Two days later, according to
Louis, the vice mayor drove
by to check on the restaurant's
tables. He called BSO to
report they had one extra
table, Louis said. "He drives
by daily eyeing the patio. He
recently called code to report
one table was nine inches
north of where it should be.
Code came, and we fixed the
situation."
The latest area of concern
to McIntee, involving the-
Marchelos brothers, is the
Fishing Pier sign, at A1A and
Commercial Boulevard.
The sign has been in place
since 1963. At the Feb. 25
commission meeting McIn-

tee said, "The [pier] sign is
getting old," and he had two
complaints about it.
Mclntee described the sign
as "crappy."
The sign is on city property.
Everett Sorensen, former pier
owner, got approval to put the
sign up in 1963, Louis said.
Now Commissioner Jim
Silverstone, McIntee and the
town attorney are researching
the ownership of the sign even
though Sorensen has written
a letter confirming the pier's
ownership.
It was Dodd who was con-
cerned about costs regarding
attorney fees to research the
sign. He called the research a


"witch hunt" and questioned
spending tax dollars.
And while that report has
not yet surfaced, another
research project is getting
underway via Mclntee, who
recently requested a copy
of the pier lease held by the
Marchelos brothers.
When called for comment
on this article about him and
the Marchelos brothers, Mc-
Intee said, "Talk to you later"
and hung up before hearing
about their allegations.
He later explained he was
on a Caribbean cruise at the
time of the first call but again
declined to comment on the
story.

Textor-Black's book reveals secrets

of a centenarian's amazing life

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER.
Want to live to be 100 years old? In -
her just- published book, author Sharon a, .
Textor-Black tells us how the person
she most admires, her grandmother Elsa
Hoffmann, now 101, did it with grace ..: .,M
and style. In "Elsa's Own Blue Zone," ,' '-. '"_ .
she has incorporated 48 helpful and -
inspirational insights on living happil .
and successfully by observing how
her grandmother tackled the "joys and
challenges" of life. The book covers
her secrets on nutritional choices to
her views on children, money, friend-
ship and fun.
Hoffmann was chronicled briefly
last year on a Barbara Walters' spe-
cial on longevity and Textor-Black
has filled her account with humor, -
history and photos. "It's a positive
pathway for Boomers and motiva-
tion for Seniors to live life to the fullest," the Rutgers
graduate said.
Hoffman is a resident of Hillsboro Beach and continues to live an active
life. After throwing herself a spectacular 100th year birthday party at Brooks
Restaurant for 100 of her best friends, she took a cruise and was grand dame of
the 2008 Pompano Beach Boat Parade.
Elsa's friends and interested members of the public will get a first look at
the new book at a luncheon Wednesday, April 1 at the Deerfield Beach Country
Club where Elsa has reigned on the golf course and in the card room for several
decades. Lunch is $20 and reservations are being accepted at 954-427-4400.
Both the author and her subject will be there to autograph copies of the
book.

Letters

Thanks for the recycling bins, now

about the careless dog owners ...
To the editor,
On North Riverside Drive at the Municipal parking lot, citizens have a recy-
cling container at the Southwest comer.
This is the third one. The other two I know of are at the American Legion Hall
and at the Fire Station on 10 Street. It's so wonderful not to have to cross the
Atlantic Bridge to recycle for our condominium.
Thanks to Phyllis, Korab, assistant city manager, Robert. McCaughan, public
works director and our commissioner, Barry Dockswell for getting the bins in
place for us.
Also, there will be 60 "Pet Waste" signs in the city to indicate the ordinance
regarding picking up pet waste.
Our public health is at risk when careless pet owners fail to clean up after
their pets.
Bacteria flows into our water ways. Our children walk on the grass. Both are
health issues from pet wastes.
But our city is moving in the right direction. We all need to help in keeping
our city beautiful.

McNab
parents say
school cuts
will hurt
McNab expected to
cut four positions
By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Parents at McNab El-
ementary School in Pom-
pano Beach say even before
county-wide budget cuts
were announced, their school
already faced a tight bud-
get. Now the school faces
an even tighter budget; about
$170,000 tighter.
"These cuts are real. It's
bad for everybody," said
Carol Lindgren, school advi-
sory forum chair at McNab
Elementary, and parent of two
students at McNab. Lindgren
joined about two dozen other
parents and students on March
25 to protest the cuts.
Lindgren says the school
may have to cut up to four
positions.
Julie Escuage, a parent of
two students, says she's glad
McNab asked parents for rec-
ommendations on what parts
of the budget should be cut. "I
saw a totally different side to
education," said Escuage.
McNab, like all public
schools in Broward, will have
to shave four percent off their
budgets before the new school

Bulk pickup would be

picked up by a special truck,
he said.
After hearing from all
five companies, Commis-
sioner Jim Silverstone asked
if any of them would have
a problem with the town's
re-assessing the numbers and
re-bidding.
Choice representatives
said they would have a prob-
lem with that. "We set the
benchmark. That would be
basically saying, 'See if you
can outbid Choice,'" Ro-
drigue said.
Earl Hall, the city attor-
ney for Lauderhill, filled in
for the LBTS town attorney.
Hall said if the commis-
sion made major changes in
the bids, they would have to
reject all proposals and start


over.
McIntee said he worked
"tossing garbage" for three
summers while in college. "I
would like to go look at the
trucks and look at the regis-
trations. If anyone lied to me,
I will vote against them," he
said. "Waste Management has
been dynamite in this town."
The delay would require
getting an extension on
service from Waste Manage-
ment. Town Manager Esther
Colon asked the attorney if in-
dividual commissioners could
speak to the companies, as
Mclntee was suggesting. Hall
said no, that commissioners
can't talk individually to those
submitting proposals.
Silverstone asked if they
could pick three companies
and asked Colon to negotiate
with them.
Hall said the commission
could select three firms in
order of preference. If nego-

go to the second and then the
third, he explained.
Before commissioners
voted, Minnet explained that
commissioners' selections
would represent 30 percent
of the score. "The lower the
score the better, like with
golf," she said.
Without the commission
vote, the order of ranking was
Choice Waste Services, Waste
Pro, All Service, Southern
Waste and Waste Manage-
ment, the same order as with
the commission vote.
After the vote, Colon said
she would start negotiating
with Choice on Wednesday,
urging commissioners to let
her know if they had anything
they wanted negotiated.
Clottey said Choice said
they would provide toilets
for town events. She wanted
that included. Mclntee said he
wanted new garbage trucks.

NTE 23 with the former CPA in this
of Atlan- location. Before moving here,
I had my offices in Davie and
een here Plantation for 22 years."
merged Asked what the EA
stands for, he explains. "An
EA or Enrolled Agent is a
d 9 federally authorized tax prac-
titioner who has technical ex-
| pertise in the field of taxation
and who is empowered by
the U.S. Department of the
S Treasury to represent taxpay-
ers before all administrative
levels of the Internal Revenue
Service for audits, collections
and appeals."
An EA has advantages
over a CPA Luciani says
"because I can deal with tax
problems globally. A CPA
is licensed by the state. An
EA is licensed by the federal
government after passing
a comprehensive examina-
tion covering all aspects of
the tax code and passing a
rigorous background check.
As an EA I advise, represent,
- and prepare tax returns for
- individuals, partnerships, cor-
porations, estates, trusts and
*- any entity with tax reporting
requirements. My expertise in

audited by the IRS and the
Florida Department of Rev-
- - enue."


- As a member of NATP,
- or National Association of
Tax Practitioners, he gets
weekly updates, essential to
- a representative. His mem-
bership in NAEA, or Na-
b tional Association of Enrolled

changes.

with all tax laws and regula-
tions."
His company, Consult-
ing Services provides full
accounting services as well
as specializing in representa-
tion. Luciani estimates that
40 percent of his practice is
representation. "I'd say 30
percent of those cases live in
other states. They have come
to me through referrals. In fact
most of my new clients have
come to me through satisfied
clients.
One such client is San-
tiago Vera, a clothing retailer
with stores in Broward and
Dade Counties. Vera says
"He defended my case with
the Florida Department of
Revenue and did a great job.
I would recommend him be-
cause he's the best."
Luciani likes to help new
businesses get started on the
right track. He says, "This

In the case of individuals,
he says, "There are many new
challenges facing those going
through marriages, separa-
tions and relocation that call
for intricate knowledge. The
laws keep changing. Different
states have different laws. It's
a real advantage to having an

that Palm Aire is no longer
a golfer's paradise. Now,
they told commissioners, the
demographics have changed
from retirees to young fami-
lies, singles and children.
And they want tennis, bas-


ketball and a toddlers' park.
That's what Vice Mayor
George Brummer wants for
the district he serves.
Ironically most of the voices
speaking for the younger
generation of homeowners in
Palm Aire were retirees, and
the question arose asking why
the younger people weren't
there on their own behalf.

"This meeting wasn't an
urgent one," says Brummer.
"They aren't going to pay for
baby sitters, and generally
they have their own things to
do. They elect their represen-
tatives to represent them. But
I did get calls the next day
from people who said 'Thank
you. '"
When asked why he was
willing to take $750,000 from
taxpayers at a time when the
city is anticipating millions of
dollars in shortfalls down the
road, Brummer explained.
"It's an opportunity for us
that may not come again, and
if it does it comes at a much
higher price. In times of stress
people look to government for
stability. We are government,"
he said.


But Brummer added that
revitalizing the area will bring
value to Palm Aire.
Once an active spot with 18
tennis courts, the land the city
will purchase was rampaged
by Hurricane Wilma, and the
owners, Alltech Group pre-
ferred to sell the land rather
than renovate it as a park.
Brummer added that the
city has $9 million in unal-
located funds, and there are
very few parks in Palm Aire.
If the purchase is closed,
the area will become a city
park, maintained by the city
and open to the public.
Brummer said park and rec-
reation officials will recom-
mend how the park is used.
Asked how he felt about
the new park, Brummer said,


"Good. It's difficult to get
something accomplished in
government."

The cuts stem from ap-
proximately $160 million loss
of state revenue the Broward
School Board is anticipating
for the 2009/2010 school year.
"Between last year and
this year we've already cut
$130 million," said School
Board Member Robin Bartle-
man, who came to the dem-
onstration in support of the
parents and students.
Bartleman says the legis-
lature needs to find alternative
sources of revenue and re-
vamp the tax system to make

last case, we offer a compro-
mise to settle the debt.
"Sales tax and unemploy-
ment tax audits are other areas
in which I frequently repre-
sent clients to the state."
A Hollywood accoun-
tant, Charles Rosenthal says,
"Mark has been representing
my clients to the IRS since
1994. After reviewing each
case we come up with the
best scenario possible. Mark
usually gets a good result that
satisfies the client."
Tax tips for readers

funding for schools. Bartle-
man suggested instituting an
internet sales tax, ending some
tax exemptions and increasing
the cigarette sales tax as ways

distribution.
2. Retirement age
is increasing. For people
born after 1959, the new
age becomes 67. Plan accord-
ingly.
3. Just last month, first
time home buyers became
eligible for a $8,000 credit.
If a tax payer chooses to
take advantage of this new
opportunity in his 2008 tax
return, he can do so. If he has
already filed, he can file an
amended return. If the buyer
lives in the new home for 36
months, repaying the credit is
not required.
4. For businesses, there


are new rules regarding
N.O.L.s or Net operating
losses. The American Recov-
ery and Reinvestment Act of
2009, gives taxpayers ad-
ditional options for carrying
net operating losses arising in
2008. Luciani cites an exam-
ple. "One of my clients in real
estate had a terrible business
year last year. He was able
to recover taxes paid from
good years, stretching back to
2003."

ration, tax representation,

of possibly generating more
revenue.
Lynette Orzech, also a
parent of two McNab stu-
dents, said she thinks school
board executive pay should be
cut to help make up for budget
shortfalls, adding that more
lottery dollars should be fun-
neled into education.
Lindgren says the situa-
tion is helping to teach stu-
dents about the importance
of money but she added that
cutting school budgets is not
the best way to teach them.
"These children are our
future leaders. If they're not
properly educated where does
that leave Florida and the

David Toole's Original
Roadhouse
3571 N. Federal Hwy.
(comer Sample)
Pompano Beach, FL
Tel: 954-782-3541.


David Toole's Original
Roadhouse just opened in
Pompano Beach. Known for
its steaks, seafood, ribs and
other American classics, this
spot has the right menu with
at the right prices.
I began with an order
of the Cheese Wraps. This
large appetizer is composed
of fresh homemade eggrolls
stuffed with Monterey Jack,


cheddar cheese and jalapefio
peppers accompanied by a
side of fries with Marinara
sauce.
With $1 draft and $10
buckets of beer, a huge selec-
tion of well-priced beverages
can be obtained at your table
or at their fully-stocked bar
anytime of the day.
Other great starters include
the "hot wings", the spinach
dip, the peel & eat shrimp or
one of the delightful char-
broil salads. These are large
bowls of Roadhouse salad
topped with steak, chicken,
mahi-mahi or fried chicken.
Of course, the Original
Roadhouse has not forgotten
to serve up the many entrees
that made it famous the first
time around. "The salmon is
my favorite" said the bar-

tender Jessica Garcia, but
the chicken, mahi-mahi and
shrimp skewers grilled over
mesquite wood are always
a satisfying option as well.
Another winning choice is one
the signature burgers. These
are freshly ground and hand
pattied daily using USDA filet
mignon, rib-eye, NY strip,
sirloin and then cooked to
your liking.
Glancing at the menu, I
also noticed the "Fall-off-
the-Bone" Baby Back Ribs.
Hand rubbed with seasonings,
slowly cooked for tenderness,
mesquite grilled for flavor and
basted with BBQ sauce, this
half or full rack offering is
delightfully moist. It provides
the perfect vehicle to deliver
the decadent taste sensation
that will satisfy any rib aficio-
nado.

A lesson in Florida


Students from Trinity Christian Elementary School of Lighthouse Point took a 'Florida' field trip to Flamingo
Gardens in Davie. Students collected and identified plant samples, planted a Coleus plant, observed wildlife, rode
a tram through a variety of habitats and attended a puppet show where "Sammy the Squirrel" taught them about
trees. The day ended up with students collecting shamrocks and having a picnic on the grounds. [Photo courtesy of

God, Immaculate Virgin, assist
me in my necessity. 0 Star of
the Sea, help me and show
me herein-you are my mother.

humbly beseech you from the
bottom of my heart to succor me
in this necessity. There are none
that can withstand your power.
Oh show me herein you are my
mother. Oh Mary, conceived
without sin, prayfor us who have
recourse to thee (three times)
Holy Spirit, you who solve all
problems, light all roads so that
I can attain my goal. You who
gave me the divine gift to forgive
and forget all evil against me and
that in all instances in my life you
are with me. I want, in this short
prayer, to thankyou for all things
as you confirm, once again, that I
never want to be separated from
you in eternal glory. Thank you
for your mercy toward me and
mine. (The person must say this

further notice."
The association's activi-
ties came under scrutiny last
week when the Poitiers came
to a commission meeting to
request a $30,000 grant to pay
delinquent expenses including
a $15,000 water bill. A grant
in the same amount was given
in August of 2008 when the
association fell behind in its
water bill payment.
Commissioner Bill Ganz
wanted more information.
"My concern is $60,000 in six
months, and the water bill is
still not paid. At what point
does this end? There has not
been a single payment since
the last $30,000."
Felecia Poitier said the
group is attempting to restruc-
ture its debt and has raised its
rents to $650 a month. "We do
intend to maintain our water
bill from now on," she told the
commission. This week, the
association paid $2,000 on the
bill.


On what she says was a
hastily drawn financial state-
ment for the months August
through March, revenues
were $64,230 and expenses
were $114,000. It shows
another $395,000 in liabili-
ties money owed to such
entities as Sun Trust, Wells
Fargo, a Lionel Ferguson,
Poitier Enterprises and Inoris
Poitier. Among the revenues
is the $30,000 grant given last
August. In other months, the
association's income averaged
only $7,818 against average
expenses of $14,393.
In trying to unravel the*
figures, Commissioner Marty
Popelsky said, "The numbers
don't jive."
Said Ganz,"You're up-
side down. How can this be
righted?"
Replied Poitier,"We are
trying to help people. We try
to give them a chance. From
us, they're homeless."
Thursday, Mayor Peggy
Noland said she had just heard
there would be no discussion
of the Westside Association
on the 31st. Noland, who was

one of the three commission-
ers who voted not to award
the $30,000, said "we need
to find about their finances.
They already have $30,000 of
our money. We need to know
who they are and how they
operate."
Ganz, who along with Po-
pelsky, also voted "no' to the
grant request said this week
he is requesting more backup
information from the city add-
ing, "there has got to be some
oversight."
But in fact, the Deerfield
Westside Businessmen's
Association, formed in 1990,
apparently operates without
governmental oversight. It is
not under the auspices of the
Broward County's Commu-
nity Development Division,
the Broward County Housing
Authority or the Deerfield

Beach Housing Authority.
In 1992, Broward County
gave the association the 28
units on SW 1 Street. Felecia
Poitier remembers the area
as a haven for crack users
and the homeless. "I don't
know the exact situation, but
when the Association took
over it was horrible. They
had an opportunity to cre-
ate housing and improve the
neighborhood." Vice Mayor
Sylvia Poitier, on the County
Commission at the time, said
the complex came with a $1
million mortgage debt which
the county co-signed. Major
rehab was done and the units
were rented.
One of the factors con-
tributing to the association's
higher-than-usual vacancy
rate, is the crash of the hous-
ing market.

brands


Felecia said Section '8'
tenants formerly sought out
the units, but those same
tenants can now rent unsold,
single- family homes where
owners are willing to take
Section '8' rent supplements,
she said.
Of the association's dire fi-
nancial situation, Felecia said,
"We have to try. It's better to
fail trying than to do nothing
at all."
Two years ago, The West-
side Association expanded its
efforts by forming a Com-
munity Housing Division
and qualifying as a minority
developer. As such, it now re-
ceives SHIP, or State Housing
Initiative Partnership, funding
and has rehabilitated several
homes on the Westside. That
funding is monitored by the
city through its Housing Au-
thority.

workshop
The Deerfield Beach City
Commission still has one
item on its Tuesday, March
27 workshop agenda. At the
request of Commissioner Joe
Miller, the commission will
convene at 6:45 p.m. as the
Community Redevelopment
Agency to discuss improve-
ments to the Cove Shopping
Center.
Following a series of
charrettes held last year, a
proposal was made to upgrade
the parking lot and require a
Key West facade on buildings
being renovated. Engineers
Keith & Associates currently
have a contract to design the
parking lot, a project sched-
uled to being late this year.

staple and punch holes in
papers to insert them into fold-
ers. They also package them in
boxes with foam peanuts. The
boxes are then displayed in
UPS stores.
At Big Louie's Pizza, it's
box folding that keeps these
students busy.
Eagle Roofing Products
has the students assemble sales
binders that are used in sales
promotions for the company.
"It's not an easy product to
put together. Eagle Roofing re-
quires several different tabs and
punch holes," said Tracey Sta-
bielli, design center coordinator
for Eagle Roofing Products.
But difficult tasks for these
young workers doesn't mean
less than perfect end results.
"We are 150 percent happy
with the results. It amazes me
how they consistently make
these binders so wel,l and they
make so many."


Stabielli has been very
involved with the students.
Eagle Roofing Products was
one of the first companies to
participate in the program
about a year ago after Stabielli
heard Wolfe speak about it at
the Pompano Beach Rotary
Club.
Stabielli showed her appre-
ciation to the students for all
of their hard work by bringing
them cookies and punch last
Christmas. "I love seeing their
smiles. It makes me feel good,
and I appreciate them more
than they know," She said.
The tasks the students are
learning may seem simple, but
it takes determination and lots
of practice for them to perfect
each skill. Most of the students
are characterized as having
intellectual delay or some form
of autism.
Jude, 16, doesn't miss a
beat with his box-making skills
for Big Louie's.
Jude's eyes wander about
the room. His body rocks back
and forth when he is on task.
Wolfe explains that this is a

form of self stimulation which
is one way for people with
autism to control their environ-
ment.
"Part of Jude's personality
is that he needs to complete
things and complete them per-
fectly," said Wolfe. "He won't
stop folding until all the boxes
are done or until someone
stops him. He's amazing."
Another student, Tavish,
15, came into the school with
some pretty tough behaviors.
"Now he's my helper. He's
excellent, and he's great out
in the community," said his
teacher Kethie Durocher..


Some of the students are
part of the Community Based
Instruction program, or CBI.
They go out daily, with staff
members to work at various
businesses such as TJ Maxx,
Pizza Fusion, Dollar Tree,
Publix, North Broward Medi-
cal Center and The Pompano
Pelican.
"The students have severe
disabilities, but it's not an
obstacle. They are dedicated
workers," said Wolfe.
Prior to the vocational lab,
students not participating in
CBI learned skills through
classroom task baskets.


"The task baskets weren't
fulfilling for the students. Now
they go into the lab to as-
semble pizza boxes, and they
know that they're doing it for
a real company," Wolfe said.
"The lab has made a huge
difference in their overall self
esteem 'and learning."
Work done through CBI
and the vocational lab is edu-
cationally based, and students
do not earn a paycheck.
"It's free for the work com-
munity and educational for our
students," said Wolfe. "Imag-
ine the satisfaction a company
could get knowing they have
helped hundreds of kids."
Wolfe is proud of what
Bright Horizons staff members
have done with their students.
But she worries that these
young adults will not have the
support they need after gradu-
ation.
"It bothers me. Where are
the voices?"
Businesses interested in the
CBI program or the vocation
al lab should call Stacy Wolfe
