Mayor updates

civic group from

tax fraud to light

bulb changers
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar
Fisher braced residents this month for a
possible $2 million deficit in the city's
budget this year and up to $5 million
next year
"It's going to be challenging,"
Fisher told the Cresthaven Civic As-
sociation group.
City officials will soon be meeting
in workshops to deal with the budget.
"I'm not a proponent of raising taxes,
but-we will look at all alternatives, in-
cluding curbing services," Fisher said.
Fisher added that one way to find
lost funds will come through the Bro-
ward County Appraiser's office that is
now actively investigating property tax
fraud.
Pompano Beach is now under in-
vestigation. After Sunrise's search, the
county appraisers recouped nearly $1
million in property taxes from owners
who falsified their property exemp-
tions. [See related story on page 6]

cuss options for the Pompano Fishing
Pier area development.

area, a casual food area and some ki-
osks for beach-goers.
Developers are Pompano Pier &
Promenade who are in negotiations
with the city for a 50-year lease to build
and operate the restaurant and manage
the pier and parking lots on Pompano
Beach Boulevard.
The public is welcome to attend the

Ditch the diets, it's Seafood


Festival time in Pompano Beach

"R E., . , � . .


Pompano Beach Commissioner Barry Dockswell was caught in the feeding frenzy last year. The Pompano Beach Seafood Festival runs from April 24
to 26 at the corner of Atlantic Boulevard and the Atlantic Ocean. Dozens of vendors will offer food, crafts, art, live entertainment and games.

Sand, surf, sun, song, spirits and
seafood. If it's April, it's time for the
25th Annual Pompano Beach Seafood
Festival.
Attendees at this year's festival,
April 24 to 26, can look forward to
the same kind of food, music and
atmosphere they've come to expect
from "Pompano Beach's signature
event," with a few new additions.

For model

railroad buffs,

here's the

ultimate clinic
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
The teensy buildings are com-
plete in every detail. The windows,
railings, authentic-looking roofs and
siding, are all reminiscent of the era
when the railroad was what connected
America to its towns and cities. The
scenic layouts are integral to model
railroading's slice -of -history appeal.
Saturday, April 25, at the Model
Railroad Museum in Deerfield Beach,
hobbyists will meet with some of the
best miniaturists in the business who

See TRAINS on page 12


"We've added a few new things
but basically everything is pretty
much the same as it's always been,"
said John Good, festival manager and
president of Good Event Management.
To attract some younger par-
ticipants, this year's event features a
skating demonstration on a half pipe,
courtesy of the Surf World Slam &
Jam, and a mini ramp skate contest.
For those looking to get a little
closer to their seafood before it lands
on their plate, a 15,000 gallon heated


pool offers a chance to experience
scuba diving first hand and possibly
the first step towards getting certified.
Donna Jannine, a publicist repre-
senting DEMA, or Dive Equipment
and Marketing Association, says
people are surprised the first time they
use the tank and SCUBA gear.
"They just think it's the most
amazing thing that they can breathe
underwater," she said.

Marv Kempner and Bill Steffen, chair of the model railroad clinic being held April 25, at the Deer-
field Beach Railroad Museum, examine an exhibit case featuring Kempner's work.

are included.
In lobbying for the ordi-
nance, Commissioner Birute
Clottey said she had com-
plaints from residents about
late night noise coming from
downtown restaurants.
Several restaurant man-
agers said no one had com-
plained to them.
Guy Contrada, Aruba
Beach Caf6 manager, said no
one has called him about loud
music. He said the proposed
ordinance scares him.
Instead of a new ordi-
nance, he said the existing
ordinance should be enforced.
"If noise is a problem, we
need citations issued," he said.
Contrada said they close

"This is a destination
town. We need to keep people
coming into town to keep
businesses," he argued. "If
you squish entertainment,
we'll be like Hallandale
Beach which is dead or Pom-
pano pier where nothing is
happening.',
LouislMarchelos, co-
owner of Athena-By-the-Sea
restaurant, suggested that
before fast-tracking the ordi-
nance, commissioners have
a roundtable discussion with
restaurant owners and citizens
to discuss concerns and try
to fix matters. "Get a decibel
expert involved," he said.
"To change the ordinance,
I think we're shooting our-
selves in the foot," Marchelos
added. "Let's try to fix this
and tweak it."


He said most hotels and
storeowners like Friday and
Saturday live music, since it
helps their businesses.
David Moore, who
performs as Elvis at Athena
restaurant on Saturdays, said
it would be a shame to see
entertainment come to an end.
"Everyone I talk to likes to
come to Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea. Some say it used to be a

Paul Novak, president of
the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

his properties are closest to
the restaurants with weekend
music, and no one has com-
plained to him.

Ortanique audit reveals poor practices, but no criminal intent


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Like any good mystery,
the "plot" thickens when it
comes to deciding if there is a
culprit in the story of Orta-
nique, Pompano's $4 million
community of single-family
homes which is being funded
by the West Community
Redevelopment Agency and
three other public sources.
An internal audit completed
last month concluded that the
records do not support the
allegations of some Ortanique
residents that following the
money trail would uncover
criminal activity. That is not
the case, reports Barbara
DeLeon, Pompano's internal
auditor.
In a memo to the city com-
mission, DeLeon wrote the
records do not support allega-
tions of criminal wrong doing,
but do reveal non-compliance
with housing requirements
and ineffective monitoring by
staff of the developer agree-
ment.
"I was not looking for
criminal wrong doing," said
Commissioner Charlotte
Burrie, who had asked for the
audit. "But I knew something
was wrong. The city did not
do its follow-up and now we
have the result. And we did
find $425,000 which the CRA
would never have paid back."

V SO - S^^^


Among the irregularities
uncovered by the audit are:
1. The base price of the
Ortanique homes was more
than the $250,000 which was
established in the developer's
agreement. The homes have
ended up being sold at prices
ranging from $140,000 to
$307,227.
2. Per that same agree-
ment, the mortgage term was
10 years, but actual mortgages
were written for 30 years.
3. More than half of the
homeowners' files did not
contain all the required docu-
mentation.
4. The developer sold


homes to people who did not
meet the low income levels
established by HUD. Under
the rules, 75 percent of the
homes were to be sold to
persons making 80 percent
of the median income for the
area. In fact, only 36 percent
were sold to these people with
64 percent of the units sold
to people in the moderate
income level. 5. Many files
lack proof that home own-
ers who received first-time
homebuyers assistance had
not owned a home for the
prior three years.


6. Still being questioned
is $41,136 in "non-allow-
able" costs paid to the builder,
Simpson Developers, $34,136
of which came from CRA
funds.


"I can't say the audit
answers all our questions,"
Burrie said. "But we can
make sure no more projects

Pompano Beach Mayor seeking injunction
against Ortanique home builder

Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar
Fisher will ask the CRA Board Tues-
day to consider placing an injunction
on further construction n at Ortanique.
At this week's commission meet-
ing, Fisher requested City Attorney
Gordon Linn to draw up an injunction
prohibiting all work at the affordable
home complex in Collier City which
now has about 28 of the 42 home
sites, either built or under construction. The matter will be
on the agenda for the 5:30 p.m. meeting.
Residents of the community have been vocal in their
complaints about the construction of their homes. Addition-
ally, non-compliance issues surfaced with the release of an
internal audit last month. (See story this page).

Two military moms now send 432 boxes overseas each

month to soldiers who have little family support


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
This story begins with
Karla Smiley who attended
the basic training gradua-
tion of her son, James Reed
last year at Fort Benning,
Ga. She noticed that many
young soldiers had no one
supporting them at gradua-
tion. She learned that soldiers
in Iraq and Afghanistan faced
the same dilemma. Then
and there, Karla made it her
mission to see that at least a
few of those soldiers did not
walk away from mail call with
nothing.
Through Army Communi-
ty Service, Smiley coordinates
with chaplains, sergeants,
squad commanders and pla-
toon leaders to get items to
soldiers in need. Thus began
Florida Moms For Soldiers.
A little local publicity
about Smiley caught the at-
tention of Judy Smith who
quickly became a full time
partner with Smiley. That
article also brought in dona-
tions from citizens and civic
groups. Now together in an
overcrowded warehouse space
these two women manage to
pack 432 boxes, at the last
count, with food and hygiene
items every month. Each box
being received for the first
time, also contains a blanket,
a prayer, and a note with their
e-mail address saying they
will try to fill special requests
when possible.
Smith, mother of US
Army Infantry Lt. Ross Wein-
shenker, and Smiley have now
changed their name to Ameri-
cas Moms for Soldiers. Smith
explains, "We didn't want to
create the impression that we
support only Florida soldiers.
We were beginning to get do-
nations from our friends and
families outside of Florida,
and some of their friends as
well."
They are now a Florida
nonprofit corporation await-
ing their official, 501c3 status

donations as tax write-offs.
This evolving organiza-
tion is run by a four-person
volunteer board of directors.
Chairman Dan Smith handles
issues and oversight. Vice
chair and founder, Karla
Smiley, is a pediatric nurse by
day. She works a second job
as a receptionist/accountant
to help cover the expenses
of this project. Judy Smith,
treasurer, puts in many hours
more than a 40-hour work-
week handling finances,
procurement of supplies,
organization and fund raising.
Secretary Tom Kelaher, P.E.,


still mails all of those pack-
ages, procures supplies and
speaks to local groups. 100
percent of the donations are
used to purchase supplies and
cover the cost of postage.
Postage for one box APO/
FPO is $11.95. Americas
Moms is now spending over
$5,000 a month on postage
alone. Smith says, "Every
month we say a prayer, hop-
ing we will have enough
money to meet the growing
demand and somehow we
always do."
She doesn't admit how

when they learn where the
boxes are going, they become
patient and even helpful."
Asked if they ever hear
from recipients, Smith re-
plies, "Oh yes. Letters and
e-mails of appreciation keep
us going." She calls attention
to one letter received from
a Sergeant who wrote from
Afghanistan:
"I had never received a
box since I arrived. Then you
came along and sent us boxes,
and I was thrilled to hear my
name called for a change. For
me to see that someone knows
and cares that there are sol-
diers out there fighting so that
our country men and women
can be free helps. You took
time to get a soldier what he
needs. Thank you."
The Pelican adds its
thanks to Karla Smiley and
Judy Smith for their support
of US troops overseas.
Individuals and
Groups can help
Here's just one case in
point. Inspired by Karla's
efforts, Jane Glatz started a
grass roots collection effort in
her condo, Nobel Point. She,
Donna Downing, Marie Cross
and Dolly McBride have
since filled three carloads
with hygiene and food dona-
tions from people eager to
help. Glatz says, "With 4,000
additional soldiers headed for
Afghanistan, we're thrilled to
be able to help. We're taking


it all to the warehouse, and we
will help Karla pack boxes."

Florida Company develops

energy Star Clothes Dryer
By Norbert Izworski
PELICAN WRITER
Hydromatic Technologies Corp. of Orlando, Florida, in conjunction with
NASA, has developed the first energy efficient clothes dryer called the Dryer-
Miser. It cuts drying time by forty-one percent, and reduces energy usage by
fifty percent.
The system works by warming a non-toxic fluid with an immersion heater.
The heated fluid then passes through a heat exchanger where it warms the air
used by the dryer. It operates like the heater in your car, where the engine heats
the coolant, which flows through the vanes of the heater where a fan blows
across it to make hot air to heat your car.
The Department of Energy is so impressed with this new technology for
clothes dryers that they are considering proclaiming it the first ever Energy Star
Clothes Dryer. Until now, all clothes dryers have had about the same level of
inefficiency, with very few differences among them.
The clothes dryer was invented around 1915. The controls are now solid-
state electronics, but the energy consumption and efficiency has remained
unchanged.
The clothes dryer is the second highest energy consuming appliance in the
home, with refrigerators the first.
The DryerMiser system will initially be available as a conversion kit to
convert any gas or electric dryer, and will retail for about $300 It was first
introduced at the 2008 International Builders' Show in Orlando last February.
Recently, Underwriters Laboratories, or UL, has rigorously tested it and given
the DryerMiser its UL Mark of Approval. The kit will be available in 2009
from appliance technicians. Several major appliance manufacturers are also
interested in manufacturing it as original equipment in new dryers.
Here are a few ways you can reduce the energy you use to do laundry.
* Since ninety percent of the energy used to wash clothes is for heating the
water, use detergents that work well with warm or cold water.
* Wash and dry only full loads.
* Dry heavier items, such as towels, separately.
* Use your dryer's moisture sensor.
* Clean the dryer's lint filter before every load.
* Use the dryer's cool-down cycle to finish drying.
* Skip the dryer and hang your clothes on a line outside.

the property is sold, Bro-
ward County will be the first payee of
any proceeds.
The appraiser's office recently
completed an audit of Sunrise and un-
covered $726,000 in unpaid property
taxes. After all taxing authorities were
paid, Sunrise retrieved $181,000 for
its budget.
Pompano Beach is the next tar-
geted city to uncover fraud in property
taxes, and city officials are hoping for
some relief as they face a $2 million
budget deficit this year.
How they cheat?
Wolfe says one common tax fraud
is to rent a homesteaded property
without informing the appraiser's of-
fice.
Homestead exemption is a tax
relief for a person's primary dwell-
ing. As long as the home remains the
dwelling of the owner, he or she can
deduct up to $50,000, and in some
cases more, of taxable value, reducing
taxes owed to the county.
In Florida the Save Our Homes,
or SOH, law further prohibits any
increase beyond 3 percent on home-
steaded property.
Other properties are taxed at the
city's ad valorum rate, a rate that can
rise to 10 percent.
Cacciatore heads the investiga-
tions and has found in Pompano Beach
between 600 and 800 fraud leads.

cities that want to work with us. It's
important to have cooperation since
we need to access some city records."
Lighthouse Point Mayor Fred
Schorr said, "Lighthouse Point has not
requested a special study on fraudulent
tax exemptions. We had been told by
the tax assessor that on a regular basis
they review tax exemptions for each
city. The special studies were primar-
ily being conducted for cities that had
their own utility departments where
they compare water service in rental
properties to tax bills. Lighthouse
Point does not have its own utility ser-
vice. We are checking to see if our util-
ity providers - Pompano and Broward
County - will assist us in the review of
tax exemptions.
LBTS Mayor Roseanne Minnet
said she would check with the town
manager. Minnet came into office in
2008 after the investigations began.
Any good news for cheaters?
According to Cacciatore, the best
thing is to turn yourself in. That way
persons guilty of the tax fraud will
avoid the penalty and the interest pay-
ments. Call 954-357-6900 to report
fraud.

U.S.Congressman Alcee Hastings visits JKV

to update, listen to some of his supporters
By Phyllis J. Neuberger ,R [( {..i-j ( -, I I I -j- .I I


PELICAN STAFF
Congress may be taking
a break, but Alcee Hastings is
not. Instead of spending time
at the beach or the golf course,
he and his chief of staff, Art
W. Kennedy, are having small
group discussions with the
people he represents through-
out Florida's 23rd District.
A quickly arranged
luncheon at John Knox Vil-
lage, or JKV, took place on
April 10. "I'd like to fill
you in on what's going on in
Washington, and get some
feedback from you on some
of the legislation that has been
enacted and other bills being
debated in the house," he said
adding, "I guess I don't need
to tell you this president is try-
ing to resolve a lot of prob-
lems, many inherited from the
previous administration. He
has skilled people and teams
working with him in so many
areas, it's hard to keep track
of them all."
He moved on to explain
his desire to fix Social Secu-
rity, Medicare, education,
health care and give incen-
tives for the exploration of
alternate energy resources.
"I'd like to see the Social Se-
curity age move to 70. People
are still energetic, involved
and in good health at 70."
He laughed and admitted he
will soon be 72 and is a good
example of a person in good
health with high energy and a
total grasp of what's going on
around him.
"In this tough economy,
I feel sort of sorry for our
young people. They have
never experienced anything
like this, but we have and
we understand what cutting
back and sacrifice means. We
were all raised either in or
on the edge of the depression

Questions from the
group:
Q: Who is currently

vehicles such as tanks, jeeps,
trucks etc.? And why don't
we consider retooling a fail-
ing auto plant, like Chrysler,
into a job retraining and

as well. There are those who
would call your suggestion to
produce all of it in the United
States protectionism. Our
shipyards are inactive too, and
we need to build new ships.
I'm sure this idea will come
up for debate sooner or later."
Q: What about gun con-

Novak said he owns some

and one is becoming vacant.
"Keep the music going, or this
town will be dead like some
of the others," he said to audi-
ence applause.
Dave Gadsby of the Vil-

any complaints about noise.
If he did, it would be the first
thing he would fix.
Residents also objected to
the proposed ordinance.
"I hate this. I haven't met
anyone unhappy about the en-

Barbara Cole said. "I don't
understand the need for this."
Cole said she also didn't

"We have a wonder-

Resident Vito Chiarello
said, "Music soothes the [sav-
age] beast. Back in New York,
if music was too loud, you
called police," he added.
Commissioner Jim Sil-
verstone said the proposed
ordinance was in no way
intended to shut anyone down.
He said commissioners got
some complaints that music
was too loud.
"This is primarily a
residential town, and when
residents are upset, we have
to take action," he said, not-
ing the town needed a way to
enforce the ordinance.
Commissioner Stuart
Dodd asked town attorney
Susan Trevarthen what the
ordinance was based on and
how she came up with decibel
levels.
She said the levels reflect
a range from other cities, such
as Sarasota, Bradenton and
Pinecrest. There are separate
standards for residential and

said, "It is a crime to add up

Dodd asked. "How many
complaints have we had? And
how many happy visitors?
The number of happy visitors
greatly outnumbers the num-
ber of complaints," he said.
"We have picked figures out
of the blue from other towns.
It's a pretty stupid ordinance
frankly."
Clottey said the problem
is "... the stuff going on at
midnight and 2 a.m. No one
on the dais is talking about
shutting down music on Fri-
day and Saturday nights."
Minnet said the town
already has a noise ordinance.
"Let's get code enforcement
out on Friday and Saturday
to enforce the existing ordi-
nance," she said.
In the ordinance, warn-
ings for excessive noise are
issued first. Fine for the first
violation within 12 months
is $50; the second violation
within 18 months is $100; and
$500 for the third violation.
Inspections will be by the
town manager or the manger's
designee.

"Pompano Beach is going
through that now, so we may
catch some bad folks," Fisher
said.
Federal stimulus
Pompano Beach received
nearly $1 million in dollars
for environmental projects
from the federal stimulus
package for lighting and solar
power.
"The dollars are coming
from the federal government
to the states and then trickle
to the cities. Some are worried
that dollars will be skimmed,"


Fisher said. "Congressman
(Ron) Klein is adamant about
working with the governor to
make sure the dollars go to
shovel ready projects. Hope-
fully, we will capture some.
We have shovel-ready infra-
structure projects," Fisher
said.
Some of those projects
include $16.8 million for
public safety, $4 million for
recreation facilities, $9 million
for transportation, $23 million
for utilities and $2.5 million
for general government. The
total request was $56.5 mil-
lion. [See itemized projects at

hiring a director firm, Fisher
noted. Requests for Propos-

A selection committee will
interview candidates from 10

The mayor announced
that Cresthaven Elementary

Asked about city base-
ball fields, Fisher said the
city is in the second phase of


improvements at the Commu-

Stadium has been demolished,
and plans call for a new soc-
cer/football field, and there
will be a dog park.

Commissioner Charlotte

working with Phyllis Korab,

together a task force with

be obtained from every pole
to see if it's Broward County

Burrie said the city
commission is studying the
possibility of taking the
police back as a city agency
rather than Broward Sheriff's
Office, but that would cost
millions. She said she would
like to see code enforcement
become a city department
rather than a department of

PELICAN STAFF
"Every morning I feed
a flock of birds, about 40
pigeons," says Marion
Wadhams, pastor of Unity
Church of Pompano.
"We had a problem with
birds and their runny waste.
Parishioners complained
about it and asked me to
get rid of them. I had to do
something. God told me to
feed them, and something
wonderful happened. Their
droppings improved. Instead
of being runny, they are dry,
and we can just sweep them
up," she says.
But now that the birds
are on a feeding schedule,
Wadhams still faces a "flock"
problem. Her church is broke,
congregants are leaving, and


members.
Kempner has his own dis-
play at the Museum, a 7-foot
high exhibition case filled with
miniature stores, factories and
houses he makes from kits
designed by George Selios,
a New Englander whom
Kempner calls "a genius."
It takes him 300 to 400
hours to assemble a complicat-
ed kit. He took up this stress-
relieving hobby when he was
still a working broadcaster.
To his pieces, he adds a


Wadhams has had to let all
of her staff go except for one
part-time sexton.
About 60 people attend
Unity on Sundays.
"Before this we had about
100. The decline began about
two years ago," Wadhams
said.
She's not alone.
"I have spoken to other
clergy, and they all say their
income and attendance is
going down.
"You would think that when
things are bad, attendance
will go up.
A lot. of people do not want
to come to church when they
can't give, but I want them
there for the Sunday lessons,"
she says.
It takes about $250,000

signature touch, placing tiny,
white birds on the roofs of his
buildings.
In one craft competition,
Kempner took all three prizes
for his work; first, second
and third. Showing his sense
of humor, his two- inch by
three- inch outhouse, entirely
finished on the inside, won
him the Innovator Award.
The Deerfield Beach
Railroad Museum has been a
fixture at the Tri-Rail Station
since 1996, sustained by a
small group of model rail-
road hobbyists. In addition
to the two model layouts, the
Museum contains pictorial
memorabilia, RR signs and
manikins dressed in period
costumes.
It is rented for private par-
ties, visited by school groups
and used for functions by the
Deerfield Beach Historical
Society.
By fall, Museum members


will likely face removing the
Museum's contents so the Tri-
Rail Station can be renovated.
According to the group's
president, Bill Muenzenmaier,
it's something that has been
in the works for more than
four years. Now it appears the
bids for the renovation will
be let in July. Luckily, the
large model railroad layouts
are built on rollers and what
cannot be removed may be
shrink- wrapped and left in
place.
When the remodeling is
complete, Muenzenmaier and
his fellow railroaders hope
to open in more spacious
quarters. Their future, how-
ever, rests with the City of
Deerfield Beach. "You never
know," he said, "when some-
one will want this space for a
warehouse."
The event is 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. More information avail-
able at 561-441-6952.

Festival


Continued from page 1
Land lovers can enjoy
continuous live performances
from Grand Funk Railroad
and the Classic Rock All Stars
along with arts and crafts, the
Boardwalk Bazaar and other
festivities. All while keeping
their feet dry.
But this festival is also
about funding local causes and
charities. "All the money we
make goes to charities in one
form or another. The money
is spread around our commu-
nity," said Good.
Some of this year's beneficia-
ries include: Pompano Proud,
Ely High School, the Boys
& Girls Club, Kiwanis of
Pompano, the Boy Scouts of
America, Women in Financial
Services, Pompano Beach
High School and Rotary of
Pompano Beach and Light-
house Point.
SEach group earns its keep
during the festival.
"They just don't profit
from this. They work to
make this successful," said
Ric Green, president and
CEO of the Pompano Beach
Chamber of Commerce, one
of the festivals founding
organizations, along with
the Pompano Beach Fishing
Rodeo. Both events are non-
profit.
Green says the idea for the
Seafood Festival was born out
of a trip to the Speckled Perch
Festival at Lake Okeechobee.
The Fishing Rodeo, which
started in 1965, and Seafood
Festival used to coincide on
the same weekend. "The Sea-

we couldn't do them on the
same weekend," said Green.
This year's Fishing Rodeo
will be held May 13 to 16.
Good said he expects this
year's Seafood Festival crowd
will be about the same as
last year's estimate of about
23,000. "As bad as the econo-
my is, people are going out
and doing events. We have
every reason to think we'll
have a really nice crowd.."
The Seafood Festival will
be located on the beach at the
end of Atlantic Boulevard.
Tickets are $10. Kids 10
and under are free. Hours are:


Friday, 5 to 10 p.m.; Satur-
day, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and
Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Parking is available on the

Pastor Luttio served as
a missionary and professor
in Japan for 15 years before
returning to Indiana to teach
at St. Mary's College. Both
Pastor and his wife, Shirley,

gions and philosophy.
Next year Pastor Luttio
plans to teach in Zion's Chris-

such a commitment to Chris-
tian education. Education has
been and continues to be a
cornerstone in my life," Luttio
said.
Pastor Luttio's vision is
"a church without borders,"
where people of all walks of
life are welcome.

Unity
Continued from page 12
building, worth at one time
about $1 million, has no
mortgage. Wadhams says
most of the money she
gets goes to maintaining
the building and paying
the professional singers on
Sunday.
"I haven't taken a check for
three months," she says.
But Wadhams isn't a quitter.
She is confident that there are
important lessons that she and
others need to learn.
"We are all going through


a learning experience in
this world. We brought it
on ourselves through our
spending. We don't have
to spend a lot of money to
enjoy life. I don't think God
wants me to give up. How
can I leave? It would be like
deserting my family. It tears
my heart apart."
She plans to pick up a
part-time job and try to get
a mortgage on the church
building.
"We thought credit cards,
cars and stuff made us special,
but they are false gods," says
Wadhams. "Now we are
finding out that none of that


mattered. It's easy to have
faith when everything is going
well. When the rug is pulled,
it's harder.
There's got to be an answer
here. I have faith that it's all
going to work out."
At 68, she refuses to give up
a ministry that she accepted at
the age of 12.
"At that age, I was sitting
in a Unity Church. There is
no narrow thinking in Unity
churches. We honor every
faith," she says. "We are a
church of unconditional love."
While love isn't paying
the bills, that doesn't keep
Wadhams from her prayer.
"We pray for ideas for things
we can do to bring abundance
to the church," she says.
And she prays for a stronger
communion among the clergy
of Pompano Beach.
"There's got to be an answer
here. I have faith that it's all
going to work out," she says.
Unity Church is located at
261 SE 13 Ave., Pompano
Beach. 954-943-3715.


Obituaries
Louis P. Perry, Sr., musician,
veteran, loved family, sports
Louis Peter Perry, Sr., 91, of Pompano Beach,
FL, and Murrells Inlet, SC passed away peacefully on
April 6 at his Florida home with his wife Nancy by his
side. A life long resident of Greenwich, he graduated
from Greenwich High School in 1937 and after mili-
tary service during World War II, he married Nancy
D'Autilio on April 12, 1945.
Lou loved music, and as a working professional
musician playing with his own band, he was known as a
fine saxophonist. Before and after retiring from Pitney
Bowes, he was an avid golfer and baseball player. He is
survived by his wife Nancy, his children Lorraine Sibley
of Branford, Louis (Debra) Perry, Jr. of Stamford and
Judy (Frank) Branca of Murrells Inlet, SC. He is also
survived by his sister Marie DeLuca, brother Peter Perry
and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his brothers Joseph and Mi-
chael Perry, sisters Louise Intrieri, Jenny D'Autilio and
Nellie Pioli. He was a proud Poppy to seven grandchil-
dren: Melissa, Chelm, Kristin, Louis III, Ashley, Mar-
shall, Mark and four great-grandchildren.
There will be no calling hours. A mass of Chris-
tian Burial will be celebrated at St. Catherine of Siena
Church in Riverside on Monday, April 13, 2009 at 10:30
am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lou's
honor to Adopt a Dog, 849 Lake Avenue, Greenwich,

Ortanique
Continued from page 3
go this way."
In the report, DeLeon re-
iterated recommendations she
first made in 2007 that.a high
priority should be assigned to
the adoption of written poli-
cies and procedure for devel-
oper agreements and further
said a policy should be estab-
lished that allows the CRA to
suspend homebuyer purchase


assistance until a developer is
in compliance with the agree-
ments.
Clearing at least one of
the non-compliance issues
detailed in the audit, the CRA
Board Tuesday will tender a
$425,000 check to the City,
the amount owned for the
8.5 acres given to the devel-
oper of Ortanique, Hawkins
Homes. The money will go
into Pompano's general fund
where according to Mayor


Lamar Fisher "It will continue
to eat up that shortfall," in
the upcoming budget. Burrie
said she would like to see the
funds for a Cresthaven park
that needs major upgrades.
Ortanique broke ground in
2006 and to date has received
$2.9 million in West CRA
funds, $515,000 to first time
home buyers from the State
Housing Initiative Partner-
ship, or SHIP, $800,000 from
federal Community Block


Grant and HOME funds.
Burrie said this week she
still does not have an answer
to the question she has asked
"six times. Where does the
city's liability end. Once we
expend the funds to the devel-
oper, where do we no longer
continue to watch over them?"
Willie Lawson, president
of North Broward NAACP, is
also watching the situation at
Ortanique. Lawson spoke at
the March 10 City Commis-
sion meeting saying that City-


certified Community Housing
Development Organizations
seem not to be providing
financial details to the city
and further suggested that
the Pompano CEHDA Group
appears not have a 501--�
certification as required by the
IRS.
"If the city is not account-
able for the city, state and/or
federal funds placed in its
care, then who is?" Lawson
asked the commission.
