The audience turned the tide in
Hillsboro Beach Tuesday.
As the commission warmed to the
idea of including beach renourishment
as a line item in the budget, former city
officials called the idea inequitable.
Long time mayor Chuck Sussman led
the protest saying it could cost single-
family homeowners "$30,000, $40,000
or $50,000 for a renourishment with
a doubtful benefit ... The key thing is

Deerfield Commissioners put pier

restaurant settlement on hold


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Two of Deerfield's newly elected
officials say they are not so eager
to approve a $80,000 buyout of the
lease held by Nautical Furnishings/
Jupiter Crab Co., parent company of
Kelley's Ocean Grill.
The company has operated the
restaurant at the International Fishing
Pier since 1993 and holds a lease that
expires in 2017 with rent computed
on a formula that includes the vari-
ables of the Consumer Price Index.
At some point Kelley's and the city
fell into a dispute over the payment
amount and an eviction process was
started. A buyout was also discussed
and, according the City Manager
Mike Mahaney, "the previous com-
mission showed an interest in moving
in that direction."
With the election of three new
commissioners, that decision may
take a new twist. Tuesday night, Dist.
1 commissioner Joe Miller asked the
item to be tabled.


Later in the week he said he had
not yet investigated the matter but said
he is not at all interested in acquir-
ing the restaurant "until we settle the
Boinis thing." Miller also said he is
not willing to have the city in the res-
taurant business, competing with the
private businesses on the beach. "Let's
put it on hold," he said.
The "Boinis thing" is a strip of
sand just south of the pier owned by
Boca businessman Pete Boinis which
the city is attempting to buy with state
grants. Unable to come up with the

By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
An eleventh-hour 'catch' regarding
the Pier Project in Pompano Beach
was averted last month with a $60,000
check from Pompano Beach taxpay-
ers.
The city came close to negotiat-
ing a lease for a commercial project,
the proposed pier restaurant, on the
same property where the now defunct
Fisherman's Wharf operated for 28
years.
The glitch was that the land upon
which the proposed and former res-
taurant stood had "reverter" clauses

$600,000 asking price, the
city continues to seek grant
money for the purchase. In the
meantime, Boinis has posted
no trespassing signs along
the perimeter of the property,
some of which is underneath
the pier restrooms.
Mayor Peggy Noland is
also wary of the buyout. "I'm
not in favor of the Parks and
Recreation Department run-
ning a restaurant," she said.
"Let's take care of what we've
got. There are many other
things to do before we take on
another deal."
Ownership of the restau-
rant could affect other things
at the pier such as restrooms


badly in need of renovation
and entrance upgrades. A
pier redo is included in the
Community Redevelopment
Agency's plans for the future.
At this point, payment of
the settlement awaits further
discussion by the commission.
As the settlement agreement
is drawn, it is due to be paid
May 1.
When Nautical Furnish-
ings/Jupiter Crab owners
signed the original lease, they
had plans to transform the
small pier eatery into a rustic
Jupiter Crab Co. restaurant
similar to one they owned in
Jupiter. Their attempts to ob-
tain permits to build out over
the sand met resistance from
state and federal agencies and
after a long delay the idea was
abandoned.

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea cuts


ribbon for new beach pavilion


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
The beach pavilion in
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea was
officially opened and blessed
during ceremonies Monday
evening at the eastern end of
Commercial Boulevard.
The Rev. George Hunsaker,
town chaplain, invited the
crowd to "look to the east and
see the beauty God has cre-
ated." He noted that tourists
travel to see what many local
residents take for granted.
Town Commissioner Birute
Clottey emceed the event.
Mayor Roseann Minnet said
the pavilion illustrated the
results of the town work-
ing together with Broward
County.
The pavilion cost $380,000.
Funding included $176,000
from the Broward County
2000 Safe Parks & Land Pres-
ervation bond program.
Broward County Vice
Mayor Ken Keechl, who
helped the town obtain county
funds, said, "This is the kind

this is the successful culmi-
nation of the design process.
Where I stand is where I used
to bring my wife and family
to the beach. This is some-

Booth introduced Edwin

"In the history of Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea, April 6,
2009, will be remembered
forever," Booth said. "We
will be able to see adults and
children with handicaps rolled
onto the pavilion and able to

Forbes said he was very
proud to be part of the town.
"Thanks for standing behind
my design. I hope you enjoy
it forever. I know I will," he
said.

later. Edwin, now a furniture
designer in Pompano Beach,
said it was "a very good feel-
ing" to see his design come to
realization.
Guests enjoyed a concert
by a brass quintet from Lynn
University Conservatory of
Music in Boca Raton and
refreshments provided by the
nearby Aruba Beach Cafe.
"It's beautiful," winter
resident Rosaire Dubois of the
Caribe condo said of the new
pavilion. He walks downtown
regularly and hadn't real-
ized a special ceremony was
planned.
"It looks nice," Paul Novak,
president of the LBTS Cham-

"We'll embellish it over
time."
"It's definitely an improve-
ment over what was there. It
fits with the ambiance of a

was used that wasn't in
the original specs, so county
inspectors wouldn't pass it,
he said. They must revert
back to the original product.
That wasn't the only
hitch with this project. As
plans for official opening
were under way, commis-
sioners received notice that
a sinkhole had developed on
the south side of the pavilion.
"It's 99 percent certain"
the problem was caused when
the driver of an 18-wheeler
got stuck in the sand while
trying to make a U-turn and
crushed the underground
pipe," said Commissioner
Stuart Dodd, who visited
the site with city staff and a


project engineer.
Dodd said the crushed
pipe was the main cause
of flooding after the recent
rains."The pipe got progres-
sively blocked as water
eroded the material and
brought earth in."
He said it was a com-
pletely hidden problem, and
nobody could be blamed for
not spotting it at the time of
the truck incident.
Steve d'Oliveira, LBTS
public information officer,
confirmed Dodd's account.
"We believe the damage was
caused by the truck and are
trying to get the cost of re-
pairs back from the insurance
company," he said.

Commission

will study

ethics laws
Deerfield Beach com-
missioners have agreed to
a $1,000 short course on
Florida ethics laws as out-
lined in state statutes, a quick
rundown of the do's and
don't's of holding political
office. Commissioners agreed
Tuesday night to hire expert
Norman Ostrau at FAU to
review the statute. Following
that session, City Attorney
Andy Maurodis will hold a
workshop for the new com-
mission on the much more
stringent ethics law approved
prior to the election for Deer-
field Beach officials.

Parking

enforcement

coming to

annexed area
Deerfield Beach Commis-
sioners approved $14,286 for
"no parking" signs Tuesday
for the Bonnie Loch, Teddar
and Woodsetter neighbor-
hoods in answer to long-
standing complaints from
residents for traffic control.
The 390 signs will be
installed by Public Works
Department crews and once
that has been accomplished,
enforcement of illegal street
parking will begin according
to Police Chief Jay Fernan-
dez.
Currently, street parking
creates so much congestion
drivers cannot get to their
homes, residents say.
In other action taken for the
area annexed five years ago,
commissioners voted to buy
a $241,247 front end loader
truck for use when the city
begins sanitation services
there Oct. 1.


Doreen Gauthier named 2009 Florida Library Director

of the Year by Professional Association of Fla. Libraries
By Phyllis J. Neuberger ]


PELICAN STAFF
Right after the Lighthouse
Point Library celebrated
its 30th Annual Volunteer
luncheon, library director,
Doreen Gauthier was notified
that she had been chosen by
her peers to be 2009 Florida
Library Director of the year.
"I'm on cloud nine," she said.
"This is a tremendous honor.
Having had this wonderful
library named for me, I didn't
think any greater honor could
be bestowed on me. This is
like whipped cream on my
cake."
Thirty was the magic num-
ber for the library this year!
The now famous volunteer
appreciation luncheon took
place for the 30th time on
March 30 which is also the
30th anniversary of the ever
supportive Lighthouse Point
Friends of the Library group.
Once again, St. Paul, the
Apostle Catholic Church gen-
erously hosted the affair and
the Women's Club graciously
helped set up and serve the
luncheon.
This year, Gauthier cooked
up even more chicken breasts
in order to feed the 125 guests
her legendary chicken salad.
She admits "It's a big job, but
one I enjoy and can keep do-
ing because I get a lot of help
from Fran Marsh, retired city
clerk, who helps me cook, cut
and chop. One guest quipped,
"They must get muscles mix-
ing the quantities they make."
Once again, Monsignor
Bryce did a very personalized
invocation. Charlene Con-
nors filled the room with the
soft, magical sounds of her
harp. Honey Bunch, Deer-
field Beach, designed the
striking center pieces of car-
nations, pearls and diamond
sparkled orchids reflecting the
30 year pearl and diamond
anniversary. The dessert, a
mouth watering chocolate
mousse, was provided by Le
Bistro.
On hand for the event were

glowing words of appreciation for the team of volunteers

sioner Sandy Johnson. [Photos by Cathy Anthony]


an estimated 90 honored
volunteers, including library
workers, Friends of the library,
and supportive advisory board
members. Also attending were
the mayor, former mayors,
city commissioners, members
of the administration and a
table of Gauthier's special
family and friends.
The Chamber of Commerce
presented a check for $7,500
to the library, the result of a
successful Taste of Lighthouse
Point event.
The current 50 plus in-house
volunteers presented Doreen
Gauthier with a Swarovski
cat in appreciation for her 30
year anniversary as Library
Director. Mayor Fred Schorr
thanked the volunteers and
all of the library supporters
for making the library a 'city
destination and a fantastic
resource.'
Since the total remodeling
and renaming of the library
many new volunteers and
services have been added de-
spite the reduction of 17 hours


of public open hours due to
budget constraints.
"We have added 20 new
volunteers since reopening,"
Gauthier says, "enabling us
to increase our services to
patrons. The volunteer hours
given are an estimated 7,500
hours per year. That is the
equal of 3-plus full time staff.
Our salaried staff includes
Cathy Anthony, Rose Mary
Wilson, Barbara Styles who is
part time and myself. Be-
cause of the dedication of our
volunteers and staff, we still
manage to handle a 25 percent
increase in usage. In January
alone, we had 1,600 computer
users. Next to Publix, I think
we are the major meeting
place in town."
Beside increasing public
access to free computers, the
staff provides a great deal
of personal assistance to job
seekers, e-government servic-
es, State of Florida Health and
Human Services and unem-
ployment applications on line.
Gauthier explains. "Many of

our patrons are not computer
literate, and we are happy to
provide this essential help.
Some of the applications are
complicated and if not com-
pleted on time, must be started

Currently, the library also
extends itself to the youngest
patrons, introducing them to
the joys of reading.

Swerdlow
Continued from page 1
ago over the Pompano Beach
Municipal parking lots and
city pier when city officials
began to negotiate a lease
with Swerdlow Developers
to move the Fort Lauderdale
Swimming Hall of Fame to
Pompano's oceanfront.
The community was out-
raged with plans that would
have brought international
swimming competitions to
the city, resulting in traffic
issues, noise and two high-rise
condominiums, also a part
of Swerdlow's plan for the
property.
Political careers were lost
over the issue at the polls
leaving a new commission
that vowed to stop any plans
for the Hall of Fame and the
condominiums.
A new commission halted
all negotiations, and that
gave rise to the lawsuit filed
by Swerdlow'Lightspeed
Management Co., LLC/Inter-
national Swimming Hall of
Fame, Inc.
The group claimed "Wrong-
ful termination and a breach
of agreement" to redevelop
the parking lots and the pier
with the "Olympic Beach
Project."
The land is presently the
location of another proposed
redevelopment that includes
a multi-tiered restaurant with
retail shops and a parking
garage.
The city prevailed in that
suit in August 2008. Senior


Circuit Judge Herbert Stettin
declared Swerdlow et al had
no agreement with the city.
According to records,
Swerdlow had never given
officials letters of credit, and
funding for the Hall was never
established.
In addition, the FAA and
Broward County Planning
Agency never gave approval
to the project.
The FAA's approval is re-
quired to protect the Pompano
Beach Air Park.
Swerdlow's group filed the
appeal that was terminated
this week, but not without
eight more months of limbo
for the beachfront properties.
"It's a great day in Pompa-


no Beach," said Mayor Lamar
Fisher. "We were always con-
fident that we would prevail
in this lawsuit, but the city is
extremely happy that it is now
over for good. This removes
all uncertainties on all of the
properties involved. We can
now move forward with the
right development for our
residents and visitors."
Fisher added that the city
would "aggressively" pursue
recouping attorney fees.
William R. Scherer, Jr. of
Conrad & Scherer, a Boca
Raton firm represented the
city in the original case and in
the appeal.
Scherer was unavailable for
comment.

Miss

Lourdies

being

prepared for

future life as

a reef
The 165-foot cargo
freighter destined to become
Deerfield's artificial reef will
be ready for scuttling in May.
The paperwork transfer-
ring ownership of the M/V
Miss Lourdies to the City of
Deerfield Beach was complet-
ed March 20, and the vessel is
now undergoing decommis-
sioning in preparation for it
being towed to its new loca-
tion and sunk a mile offshore,
north of the fishing pier, in
120-feet of water.
The cargo freighter was
seized by US Customs and
Border Patrol in 2008 in the
Miami River after 150 kilos of
cocaine was discovered hid-
den it its hull.
The effort to restore the
Miss Lourdies to worthwhile
service was a combined effort
of several entities including
Palm Beach County Envi-
ronmental Resources Man-
agement, Broward County
Biological Resources, the
aforementioned agencies and
private donors, Dixie Divers,
CEPEMAR Environmental
Services and the Bunnell
Foundation.
The vessel will become a
habitat for marine life which
in turn will attract divers to
the area.

Broward County's first and only Cyberknife is up

and running at North Broward Medical Center


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Broward Health wel-
comes the addition of
Cyberknife to its already
renowned cancer fight-
ing arsenal. Claimed to be
the world's most advanced
robotic radiosurgery system
used to treat tumors, the
Cyberknife is located at North
Broward Medical Center, or
NBMC, 201E. Sample Road
in Deerfield Beach.
The public has been in-
vited on several occasions to
tour the cancer center and see
this powerful and expensive
piece of equipment that treats
tumors non-invasively any-
where in the body, pain free.
Dr. Anurag Agarwal,
CEO of HealX Oncology and
Chief of Radiation-Oncol-
ogy, Broward Health explains
what the Cyberknife is, how it
works, and its benefits.
The Cyberknife stereo-
tactic radiosurgery system is
an alternative to traditional
surgery.
It is used to treat tumors
and lesions throughout the
body. Using image guidance
technology and intelligent
robotics, it pinpoints the posi-
tion of the tumor, then deliv-
ers hundreds of tiny beams
of radiation from various
angles that converge at the
tumor site. The tumor re-
ceives concentrated radiation
while minimizing exposure
to surrounding healthy tissue.
With sub-millimeter accuracy,
Cyberknife can be used to
treat vascular abnormalities,
tumors, functional disorders
and cancers of the body.
Stereotactic radiosurgery
is a non-invasive treatment
that beams high doses of
focused radiation to destroy
tumors and lesions. This
knifeless operation is an ef-


fective alternative to surgery
or conventional radiation for
treating many small tumors
and other medical disorders.
Benefit to patients
Usually no anesthesia neces-
sary
No recovery time
Robotics compensate for
patient moving
Flexible treatment planning
Treatment is usually out-
patient, lasting 30 to 90
minutes
Appropriate for inoperable
or untreatable tumors or
other lesions
No risk of infection, bleed-
ing or anesthesia complica-
tions
Immediate return to normal
activity
Better quality of life during
and after treatment
Now available close to home
so patients do not have to
travel far

The Cyberknife System
was FDA approved in 2001.
Dr. Agarwal, called Dr. A by
his staff and The Pelican for
this article, has been with
Broward Health for about one
year and a half, but he has
been treating patients with
Cyberknife since its FDA ap-
proval.
He says, "It's a real plus
to have this equipment avail-
able to residents of Broward,
Dade and Palm Beach. It
gives a true edge to our com-
prehensive cancer program.
We work closely as a team,
using many curative technolo-
gies to approach each case.
Cancer should be treated by
an expert team. Three doctors,
a radiation oncologist, a medi-
cal oncologist and a surgeon,
will evaluate and recommend
the best treatment options.
We try to make the treatment
plan as seamless as possible to
keep an already stressed per-

to Broward Health's cancer fighting arsenal, it is a non-invasiv.e, radiosurgery
system which uses image guidance technology and intelligent robotics to destroy
tumors: Available at North Broward Medical Center, 201 E. Sample Road,

son calm and comfortable. We
have many resources to help a
patient cope."
Cyberknife treatment, like
stereotactic radiosurgery, is
usually covered by Medicare
and most private insurances.
Patients are encouraged to
check with their health insur-
ance carrier prior to treatment
to ensure proper authorization
for treatment.
Dr. Anurag Agarwal
One might conclude that
a future medical career was
programmed into Dr. A. His
mother and father are both
retired area physicians. His
wife is an internal medicine
physician.
His mother-in-law is a pe-
diatrician and also part of the


Broward Health Family. Dr.
A earned his MD from George
Washington School of Medi-
cine and Health Care Sci-
ences. He trained in radiation
oncology at the University of
Pittsburgh School of Medi-
cine, followed by a fellowship
in ultra sub-specialized field
of Proton-beam radiation from
Mass. General Hospital, part
of Harvard Radiation Oncol-
ogy Program. Although he
specializes in the treatment
of all types of cancers, he has
particular interests in prostate,
breast, brain and lung cancers.
Dr. A. is double board certi-
fied in radiation oncology and
internal medicine.

Banners


Continued from page 1
explained that permission
to place signs on state roads
requires Florida Department
of Transportation, or FDOT,
approval and getting that is
not an easy task.
The town was recently
turned down for signs on
Commercial and AlA.
"We want people to know
where they can park," said
Clottey. "We're going with
banners because we have


Erosion


Continued from page 1
fairness. The owner of a $20
million house is paying an
enormous amount for sand he
doesn't get," Sussman said.
Sussman and most of
the island's 50 private home
owners live at the south end
of the three -mile strip. The
beach renourishment project,
due to start in December, will
address serious erosion on a
one-mile strip at the north end
of town.
Estimated to cost $8 mil-
lion including an expected
contribution of $3.5 million
in disaster funds from the fed-
eral government, paying for
the project is now the com-
mission's challenge. Tuesday,
some called it a "conundrum."
The board heard from fi-
nance lawyer Mark Raymond
who said special assessments
often spawn litigation and to
include the cost of renour-
ishment in the budget is the
"safest and easiest way."
Raymond said the town could
obtain a bank loan to pay for
the work and would insure
a good interest rate by guar-
anteeing repayment with ad
valorum taxes.
In 1998, when the town
last built up its beaches, an
assessment based on ben-
efit was established: those
on the beach paid $1,500
and $1,200; those across
the street, $900 or $600.
Although worked out by an
expert, that assessment drew
such heavy criticism from
residents, residents are still
talking about it.
In presenting the ad
valorum taxation plan, Vice
Mayor Dan Dodge was hop-
ing to resolve the financial
matter and eliminate a work-
shop on the topic scheduled
for Monday, April 27, 6 p.m.
at Opal Towers.
Beachfront landowner
John Kennelly called Dodge's
suggestion "totally inequi-
table," and Mary Celentano
feared the issue will present
an "us against them atmo-
sphere.
"The Women's League


had a difficult time with the
FDOT."
Mayor Roseanne Minnet
suggested having a local artist
put the banner signs together.
"It's an incredible opportunity
to use local artisans rather than
the run of the mill."
LBTS banners aren't new.
Now banners decorated with
starfish are on view along
A1A.
Clottey said banners could
be customized. Groups could
produce them for special
events, and arrows could be


built a comeraderie here that I
feel is slipping away," Celen-
tano said. Added Deborah
Donoho, "It appears it is stick
it to the rich people."
Shari Lieberman said,
"All of us want to participate
in beach renourishment. I'm
happy to contribute. But to
dump it all on the homeown-
ers? Would condo owners
be willing to help us out if it
were the other way?"
The ad valorum tax did
have some supporters.
Shelton Gross pointed out
that owners of new condomin-
iums with high assessments
could pay more than owners


added pointing to the hospital-
ity district.
"We put up banners for
the seasons. If they work, we
may not need FDOT signs,"
Clottey said. "Our businesses
are hurting."
Bill Davis, former cham-
ber president endorsed the
idea.
Artists interested can call
954-776-0576. Designs can be
submitted to the town clerk's
office or mailed to Town Hall
at 4501 Ocean Drive, Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea, FL., 33308.

line item is a very suitable

Claire Schubert, a resident

said, "I want to commend the
commission on an elegant
solution to an impossible situ-
ation."
With limited time to get
their finances in order, com-
missioners took attorney D.
J. Doody's advice and called
for consultant bids to create
an assessment method, should
they go that route, and kept
the April 27 workshop on

3-D Design totally engaged
the students. This interactive
program allowed the students
and the presenter to see one
another and engage in face
to face, lively question and
answer session.
According to Dr. Phyllis
Shiffer-Simon, these virtual
field trips provide students
with global learning about
places they may never visit in
person. Plans are underway
for a student teleconference
to a community in Brazil.
Gauthier is excited by this
"unique opportunity and cut-
ting edge partnership as a way
to disseminate knowledge and
information in another dimen-
sion."
Library fans left the lun-
cheon feeling great about
their library knowing it was as
current as tomorrow, even as
it continues to provide old-
fashioned personal service.
Thank you volunteers for
keeping this important facility
available to all of the residents
of Lighthouse Point.

SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
Broward County has
chosen Green Children's
House Early Learning Center,
located at 307 NE 1 St. in
Pompano Beach, to receive
one of the County's 2008 Em-
erald Awards for its environ-
mentally responsible business
practices.
The Green Children's
House Center won the envi-
ronmental award under the
category of the "Innovative
Procedures/Process Improve-
ment-Small Btisiness."
Factors that qualified the
business included eco-friendly
childcare that protects and
preserves the environment.
Children are served organic
snacks and practice yoga.
Floors At Green Children's


House are made of bamboo.
They are easy to clean and are
made of renewable resources.
Cleaning supplies are also
eco-friendly, and instead of
paper towels, hand clothes are
used, washed and reused.
Recycle bins are placed
throughout facility, and own-
ers changed an old door with
a new one that has a window
to allow natural light in, re-
ducing electricity needs
The pre-school is the first
in Broward County to intro-
duce a STEM, or Science
Technology, Engineering and
Math, program.
For the 2009 - 2010 school
year, all kindergartners will
be issued laptop computers
as part of their STEM cur-
riculum, empowering students


to be leaders in technology
and innovation. Their motto
is Green Children's House
is Saving the Earth with one
child at a time.
Emerald Award winners
will be featured in media
releases leading up to the Em-
erald Awards ceremony.
Dominique Louis and
his wife, Danyiel, founded
their school in January 2008.
"We're ecstatic about the
award," said Louis. "The chil-
dren and our parents appreci-
ate what we're doing. Some
parents are seeing behavioral
differences in their children,
and we think part of that is due
to our organic food."

Fairy tale ballet, The Sleeping

Beauty, opens in Boca Raton

featuring Royal Winnipeg Ballet
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN 11


Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's
The Sleeping Beauty will be
performed May 2 and 3 at the
Florida Atlantic Theater, 777
Glades Road, in Boca Raton.
"The Sleeping Beauty is a
ballet-goer's ballet. It is the
quintessential classic ballet
that has been a definite crowd
pleaser ever since its original
production in St. Petersburg
in 1890," says Dan Guin,
executive director for Boca
Ballet.
The tale of Sleeping
Beauty follows a princess
who falls asleep when she
touches a spinning wheel. She
wakes up when a handsome
prince kisses her.
"For those people who
take their kids to see The
Nutcracker every year, this is
the perfect ballet for them to
see next," says Guin. "And,
of course, every young girl in
ballet dreams of dancing the
role of Aurora at some point."
The two featured dancers
in The Sleeping Beauty return
to Boca Ballet Theatre from
the Royal Winnipeg Ballet,
where they are both principal
dancers. The duo headlined
BBT's production of Swan
Lake last summer.
Gael Lambiotte [Prince
Florimund], started his dance
education with Madame Laga
and Piotr Nadelli. He com-
pleted his dance training at
the School of the Royal Ballet
of Flanders. In 1998 he re-
ceived the Alexandra Radius
Award for best dancer of the
year. Lambiotte has danced


Gael Lambiotte dances
the role of Prince Flori-
mund at FAU on May 2
and 3.

with companies throughout
Japan, Europe and America.
Born in Edmonton Al-
berta, Vanessa Lawson began
her first 12 years of training
with the Edmonton School of
Ballet. She left home at the
age of 16 to study at the Roy-
al Winnipeg Ballet School
where she received the Prince
Edward Award and gradu-
ated with distinction in 1996.
In the 2001/02 season she
worked with Sir Peter Wright


to dance the dramatic and
technical role of 'Giselle.' She
was also invited to dance at
the Benois de La Dance Gala
performance on the Bolshoi
stage in Moscow.
To Order Tickets:
Tickets for The Sleeping
Beauty by Boca Ballet Theatre
are $30 for adults, $25 for
children and seniors. Real
time ticketing is available on-
line at www.bocaballet.org or
by phone at 561-995-0709.

Pier
Continued from page 1
stipulating that if the city
used the land for anything
other than public use, the land
could revert to the original
donor or heirs.
To Pompano Beach resi-
dents, several lots at the ocean
would be lost.
The clauses were part of a
donation of beach property in
1951 by J.D. Blount.
The beach property is
divided into several lots, and
other lots were donated by
families, including the Kester
family.
City Attorney Gordon
Linn, who was not involved
in the negotiations for the
lease, discovered the clauses
just prior to the commission's
expected vote earlier this
year. On Jan. 13, the com-
mission pulled the lease from
the agenda and directed Linn
to investigate the reverter
clauses.
When asked why the
clauses were not found
sooner, City Manager Keith
Chadwell said, "We had out-
side counsel review the lease.
I don't know how it was
missed. It was discovered by


the city attorney. There was a
restaurant there for how many
years?"
In March Linn reported
that the Blount family had
agreed to remove the re-
verter clauses in exchange for
$50,000 plus up to $10,000
in legal fees. Commissioners
approved the funding.
But two lots, referred to as
'four' and 'five,' remain part
of the property where the pro-
posed pier restaurant would
have been built.
Linn says the city has
not been able to negotiate
on those lots because of the
multiple number of heirs
involved.
Back to the drawing board
Scott Neilson, a partner
and spokesperson for Pompa-
no Beach Pier & Promenade,
LLC, says "Three different
plans will be considered for
public input."
One way to keep the res-
taurant on the beach is an L-
shaped facility on the ocean-
front and partly on Ocean
Boulevard.
Plan B would move the
project back 50 feet and build
along a 'curved' Pompano
Beach Boulevard.
Plan C calls for the entire
complex to be moved to the

parking lots on the west side
of Pompano Beach Boulevard
across from the pier.
Neilson says in that case,
he would consider a plaza or
park next to the pier.
Barry Dockswell, District
1 Commissioner, says beach
residents are looking for-
ward to a redeveloped beach.
"Beach residents are eager for
the cranes. [Redevelopment]
will clean up the slum, blight,
drug sales and prostitution."
But Dockswell is not ready
to accept the concept that calls
for two restaurants, a banquet
hall and 40,000 sq. ft. of retail
space at the beach.
"We have already autho-
rized a banquet facility at
WCI. And we have approved
banquet halls for two pending
hotels," he says. "I support the
Pier project minus the banquet
hall and minus 20,000 sq. ft.
of retail."
Dockswell added that
plans for a parking garage at
the beach includes more retail
space, and he points out that at


WCI, a mixed-use complex on
East Atlantic and A1A is un-
able to lease its space. "With
so much vacant retail space in
the area, it makes no sense to
put non-beach-oriented retail
on the beach. The retail pro-
vided by this project should be
focused solely on what people
want to buy when they have
sand between their toes: food,
drink, reading materials, T-
shirts, towels, sunscreen and
other beach-related items."
"We all want develop-
ment," Dockswell said. "But
we want development that
can be supported. We want
development on the beach
where residents can wake up
every morning and live with
the consequences of what we
have done."
He says an "overwhelming
majority of beach residents"
want something smaller.
Lease negotiations
If the lease is approved
by the city, Pompano Beach
Pier et al will pay $300,000


annually for 50 years. An
incremental adjustment is
included in the lease. While
the corporation name is dif-
ferent, Pompano Beach Pier
and Parking, the same owners
will also hold the concession
for the city pier and parking
on Pompano Beach Boule-
vard. That agreement includes
monthly payments to the city
of $3,000.
Neilson concedes that the
restaurants, banquet hall and
retail shops are nearly 50
percent larger than what the
city originally intended for
the project. But he adds that
a 4-Star restaurant, one of the
biggest banquet facilities and
the casual dining areas will
be a big draw for Pompano
Beach.
"I travel all over the state
looking for places like this,"
Neilson says. "I see what other
cities like Delray Beach have
done. Why not Pompano?
They are drawing crowds.
This project is a piece of the
puzzle for stimulus in Pom-
pano Beach. We need jobs.
Some of these wait people will
be making $60,000 annually"
A public workshop for the
pier project, planned for this
week was cancelled due to
religious holidays. Another
workshop is expected to be
planned.
