Take a healthy

dose of advice

this week
In this week's Pelican, the staff
focused on health and safety issues.
Summer is here.
We looked around for some experts
to help all of us get through the sum-
mer feeling fine and safe. We hope you
enjoy these pieces, and we hope you
let us know if there are other issues
you want our staff to chase down.
Be safe and be well.

Commission

differ on office

plans

By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
A move to scale back improvement
plans in the Broward Sheriff's Office
portion of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea's
public safety building did not sit well
with the BSO chief.
"I am very upset by this," Chief Scott
Gooding said at this week's Town
Commission meeting.
In recommending only a holding
cell and sally port, a secured area for
bringing in prisoners, rather than more
elaborate plans proposed by BSO,
Town Manager Esther Colon said,

The Dog Days

of Summer often

include fleas
By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
It's hard to walk a dog in South
Florida without picking up a few fleas.
And before long, those few lay doz-
ens of eggs which lead to hundreds of
fleas.
Fleas are wingless insects whose
mouthparts are adapted for piercing
skin and sucking blood.
And they drive dogs and cats crazy.
Summers in South Florida are hay days
for fleas.

"It was going perfectly, we were
almost finished for the day, and
we were going to come home,"
the dive instructor said. "She was
coming up with her diving partner
when the boat came speeding up
and hit her in the head. When I
came up with my pair, the other
instructor saw a pool of blood


behind her. We started CPR right
away, but at no point in the rescue
did she have a pulse."
None of the divers got a good
look at the boat that hit her but
another diving instructor caught a
glimpse of the vessel as it went by.
"The other instructor said the
boat was going extremely fast; it
just streaked by," the instructor
said. For her to be hurt that bad,
that boat had to be going pretty


fast." The story is five years old, and
the incident took place in Toronto.
The dive instructor later said that the
boat did not obey the dive flag law
that requires boaters to keep a distance
of at least 300 feet from a dive flag.
Tomorrow Florida Dive Flag Aware-
ness Week begins and continues
through July 3.

Pompano Commission has 18-month window to

spend $ 4 million in federal stimulus funding


-By Christina Veiga
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach is in a hurry to
spend $4 million in federal stimulus
money, and city officials aren't sure
they can do it in time.
The Office of Housing and Urban
Development has received federal
grants for its mission but the money
comes with an 18-month deadline and
cumbersome stipulations.
With only 17 more months in which
to spend the money, the office has
pushed back plans to buy foreclosed
properties and resell them as afford-
able housing, and has jumped on
plans to build an affordable housing
rental development, to the dismay of
some city commissioners.
Commissioner Charlotte Burrie
argued against the deal at Tuesday's
commission meeting, saying residents
in her district were assured that fore-


closed homes in their neighborhoods
would be refurbished.
There are more than 1,000 fore-
closed homes in Pompano beach, the
majority of which are located in the
Cresthaven and Highlands areas.
But plans to hire a broker to help
the city purchase and resell foreclosed
homes have been pushed back. The
plan hasn't been thoroughly discussed
at the commission level yet, said A.
Richard Bowman, director of the
office. He assured commissioners
that is still the plan, but with the tight
deadline looming, the city is now
looking into extending a $1.2 million
loan to the developer Cornerstone
Group to build 360 rental units in the
empty trailer park bounded by 1-95
and Dixie Highway. The majority of
the units would go to residents earning
60 percent of the mean average in-
come, with 28 units reserved for those
earning 50 percent or less.


"In order to do a project like this, they
need city financing to be able to build
them and rent them at an affordable
rate," Bowman said.

beach and municipal fishing pier, 222
N. Ocean Blvd.
Rain date is July 5. The 14 Street
Causeway and Atlantic Boulevard
bridges will both be locked down and

Fleas


Continued from page 1
Mature fleas lay eggs on the
host animal.
Those eggs often roll off
and incubate in the soil, and
within a few days or weeks,
the fleas are at home in the
yard and hungry for a host
animal.It's all part of living in
this climate.
Dr. Tanya Higgins is a
veterinarian at Lighthouse


Point Animal Hospital, 3138
N. Federal Hwy., Lighthouse
Point.
She says, regarding fleas,
"There is no season for fleas
in Florida. They just get more
prolific in the summer."
Higgins adds that there is no
"magic" shield to protect dogs
or cats, just a lot of work.
"Media advertising has
led people to believe that
shampoos, sprays and col-
lars [worthless, she adds] get
the job done. But what must

be done is to break the cycle
through chemical sprays for
the lawn and home along with
medications from a veterinar-
ian like Advantix or Frontline,
brand names that are not
available in pharmacies or
other stores."
She adds that many pest
control companies offer non-
toxic sprays that are equal to
other chemicals.
But Dr. Higgins cautions
pet owners about flea and tick
chemicals that are sprayed
directly on the animal.
"Some sprays are toxic to
cats. When I worked at an
animal emergency clinic,
many cats came in with
seizures and other symptoms
caused by flea or tick sprays.
By the grace of God, some of
them lived."
She adds, "Never use a
spray made for a dog on a cat.
Pyrethrine [an agent in most
flea sprays contain neurotox-
ins that attack the nervous
systems of insects] is also
toxic to cats. They can die."
She says that some people
even share their human drugs
like Tylenol with their ani-
mals. That too can be fatal.
Fleas aren't fatal to cats,
but they can lead to bacterial
infections.
Dr. Higgins says she sees a
number of cats that have de-
veloped secondary infections
frominflea bites.
"Cats are allergic to the fleas'
? "" i


saliva. It's like a human with-
a peanut allergy. Cats will
start mutilating themselves
causing the secondary bacte-
rial or fungal infection," she
says.
Dr. Higgins has little regard
for flea collars, referring to
her earlier solution to fleas of
"breaking the cycle."
Most veterinarians carry
tick collars for dogs only.
The best advice Dr. Hig-
gins gives when it comes to
helping pets is to check with
your own veterinarian before
giving any medication not
prescribed by the vet.
Dr. Higgins is a 2001
graduate of the Atlantic
Veterinary College at Uni-
versity of Prince Edward
Island in Prince Edward
Island, Canada.
She started her stud-
ies in Traditional Chinese
Veterinary Medicine in
2005 at the Chi Institute,
in Reddick, Fl. Lighthouse
Point Animal Hospital is a -
full-service hospital that
offers acupuncture, mas-
sage and food therapy. For

Stimulus
Continued from page 1
Cornerstone Group has
already completed several
affordable housing complexes
in the city. Commissioner
Barry Dockswell is against
the deal. His most pressing
issue: Even though a per-
centage of the rental units
would serve those living at 50
percent of the mean average
income, the development
does not count toward federal
requirements that 25 percent
of the money be used for this
targeted population.
Regulations stipulate the
money be used for buying and
reselling foreclosed homes,
rather than new develop-
ments. "We don't have our
act together the way we
should," Dockswell said,
adding, "I would rather see
another $1.2 million worth
of foreclosed properties we
could rehabilitate without this
deal," Dockswell said.
Cornerstone Group has six
months to get its finances
ready in order for the city to
disburse the money and for
the project to begin.

Faith is the seed that will make Parkway gardens grow


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
It's 90 degrees, the sun
smotes. There is no breeze
and an unexpected 'water fea-
ture' like a broken irrigation
line bubbles up and makes
mud of the rocky soil.
To envision this barren land
hard against 1-95 as a poten-
tial Garden of Eden, takes
some faith.
But the gardeners at Park-
way Methodist Church have
the faith of their fathers
[archives reveal Parkway's
first pastor thought his church
would one day be surrounded
by a park] and faith in the
future.
What they see for the six
acres around their 43-year-
old church is a permaculture
forest with green canopy,
fruit-bearing trees and bushes
and community vegetable
gardens.
There will be paths for
strolling, benches for reflect-
ing, tables for picnics.
But right now there is work
to do. Volunteers shovel
asphalt and rock from the re-
cently-cleared acreage to meet
an August deadline required
by a Broward Beautiful Grant.
County workmen come and
clamp off the plastic line.

Afonso, two of the project
leaders, discuss what's next.
Inside the church, Kevin
Sloat meets with other gar-
deners to plan after school
activities for kids in the com-
munity garden.
The Broward Program Di-
rector of South Florida Urban
Ministries, Sloat said this is
the only garden project which
involves his agency, and he
intends to teach kids not only
how to grow food, but where
to sell it.
"We'll show them the en-
trepreneurial element," Sloat
said.

Vitamin D


is the

supplement

of the month

By Dr. Bill Longstreth
SPECIAL HEALTH WRITER
Every month, without fail,
some new nutritional supple-
ment is touted as the cure for
all that ails you. With fan-
fare and "scientific studies"
to back the claims, the new
product is
sold on the
Internet, in
health food
stores and
drug stores
at prices that
can make the Longstreth
manufacturer
wealthy overnight.
The current "Flavor of the
Month" is Vitamin D, a vita-
min supplement that has been
around for over 50 years.
Although no one has a cor-
ner on the market for Vitamin
D, the interest [and misinfor-
mation] is still running high.
Vitamin D can be ingested
through our food in the form
of vitamin D2 or D3, or man-
ufactured in the body from
cholesterol when sunlight
strikes the skin.
As little as 20 minutes of
exposure per day will produce
enough Vitamin D to maintain
adequate levels in the body.
Regardless of where the
Vitamin D comes from, it has
to be chemically altered by
the liver before being released
into the blood stream.
In the blood, it is still inac-
tive until processed through
the kidneys to a form that ac-
tually functions as a hormone
increasing calcium uptake
from the digestive tract, urine
and bone.
The recent fad over Vitamin
D supplementation is related
to studies showing women
with low bone density [osteo-
penia and osteoporosis] often
have a Vitamin D deficiency
and supplementation often

column.
By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
The residents of John Knox
Village, or JKV, are well
known for their generosity to
Village employees.
Because theirs is a no
tip Village, at holiday time
residents give very generous
annual checks to every Village
employee to show apprecia-
tion for the care given to them
and their campus.
And that's not all. Twice
a year, they honor qualified
employees with financial
scholarships.
This helping hand opens the
door to a brighter future for
those who apply and qualify.
On June 6 the Resident


Scholarship Fund made 15
employees mighty happy
with an afternoon scholarship
award celebration.
Proud family members of
those receiving scholarships
joined the residents in cheer-
ing the award winners on.
Jeanne Russack, treasurer of
the Resident Employee Schol-
arship fund, says, "Our group
began in 1995. Since then, we
have awarded over 100 schol-
arships to employees, invest-
ing over $225,000 into higher
education for grateful employ-
ees. Our funds come from
individual resident donations
and a few estate bequests.
Betsy Bousfield, chairper-
son of the Resident Employee
Scholarship Fund, says, "We
encourage the learning experi-
ence and the possibilities
of enhanced futures for our
employees.
To qualify, there are certain
requirements. The employees
must be here for one year and
have worked 500 hours. They
must be high school graduates
or have a G.E.D., submit an
essay explaining their goals
and educational plans, and
have two letters of recom-
mendation from non-family
members.
Once these requirements are


met, the candidate is inter-
viewed by a committee and
finally approved by the execu-
tive board of the Resident's
Employee Scholarship Com-
mittee."
A scholarship can be worth
up to a total of $12,000.
Maximum given is $1,500 per
term.
If the employee completes
the program and passes, and
there is still money available
up to $12,000, and that person
is still employed, he or she
can request a portion for ad-
ditional study.
Recent high school gradu-
ates who have met the re-
quirements and go on to
further education need not
remain Village employees.
They can earn the full
benefit of $12,000 at the rate
of $1,500 per term if a C or
better grade is maintained.
Proof must be shown at the
end of each semester. Four of
the current scholarship win-
ners fall into this group.
All have been working in
dining services while in high
school and as new graduates
have hopes and plans.
Karen Cherenfant hopes
to pursue a career in crimi-
nal justice. She says, "This
scholarship will help reduce


my parent's financial burden
as I begin to attend Broward
College, or BC."
Kendra Frederic says,
"Nothing is impossible. I mo-
tivate myself." She will at-
tend BC and plans to become
a nurse or an anesthesiologist.
Mary Louis says, "I'm liv-
ing the American dream. I
plan to attend BC to become a
pharmacist.
Chrislene Zetrenne's goal
is graduating as a registered
nurse. "I will attend BC for
two years" she says, "and then
move on to USF in Tampa."
Six CNAs, or certified nurse
assistants, are inspired to be-
come LPNs, or licensed prac-
tical nurses. With the help of
their scholarships, they will
succeed. They are: Gladys
Bernier, Cecile Chrisol, Nes-
rene Clark, Mikerlande M.
Dorvil, Anne Marie Dumervil
and Yolandre Etienne.
Village Glen Coordinator,
Renette Johnson. intends to
use her scholarship to be-
come a registered nurse. She
says, "I really appreciate this
chance you've given me to
attain this goal."

rently works as a staff

developer. She says her
scholarship will allow her to
pursue her BS and MS de-
grees in nursing education.
Schelli Outar works current-
ly as a recreation therapy as-
sistant. She plans to become a
medical assistant and be a role
model to her own children.
Catherine Phillips, a 17 year
JKV employee, is a Village
favorite who is famous for her
ability to greet most residents
by name as they arrive in the
dining room. Although she
already has job with major
responsibilities as the cater-
ing manager and assistant
food services director, Phil-
lips hopes for even more in
her future. She will attend
Florida Atlantic-University at
night taking hospitality law
and marketing.
The last scholarship win-
ner is Alime Tcherkezova-
Esatova, from Russia, who
describes herself as a mother
and grandmother with a long
business background. "I've
been in hotel management,
banking and tourism. My
last career in tourism took me
out of Russia, and I began to
see how people live in other
countries. After coming to
the United States and expe-
riencing freedom, I made up
my mind to live here," said
Tcherkezova-Esatova. While
learning English, she is work-
ing as a home health aide.
She likes making older people
happy and hopes to become


an LPN.
This unique resident schol-
arship program may well be
one of the reasons JKV is suc-
cessful in keeping employees
on the payroll and happy on
the job.
Eric Nenortas, activities
director at the Village Health
Center, appreciates the schol-
arship he received just six
months ago.
He wanted to add physi-
cal fitness to his skills and
incorporate it into his work.
Since attending the World
Fitness Association in Fort
Lauderdale, he has become a
Certified Personal Trainer and
a Master Fitness Instructor.
"I love it," he says. "I'm
already teaching Fit Ten-
nis Boot Camp at Markham
Park, and I'm a group fitness
instructor at Coconut Creek
Community Center. With
the knowledge I've gained
through my studies, I've
incorporated new wheelchair
fitness exercises and stretches
for the residents of the Health
Center. I've used just $195
a month for six months, and
it's given me a second career
that helps to pay for the new
baby's diapers."

dents of JKV for helping your
employees to better their
futures.

Vitamin D
Continued from page 4
helps increase bone density.
Vitamin D is fat soluble and
is stored in the body. While
overdose is unlikely, it is pos-
sible. Frequently, a high level
of vitamin D creates pain and
inflammation in the body.
This is especially common
if there is not enough of the
Omega-3 fatty acids in the
diet to balance the Vitamin D.
Omega-3 fatty acids are the.
most common dietary defi-
ciency in the US today.
Arthritic pain, fibromyalgia,
chronic low back pain and a
host of other inflammatory
symptoms have been related
to an imbalance between
Vitamin D and fish oil [omega
3 fatty acids.] Probably the
most important issue is to de-
termine the cause of Vitamin
D deficiency. If you have
been diagnosed with osteope-
nia or osteoporosis, or are just
interested, check your Vitamin
D levels with a blood test.
If you are deficient, then
supplementation [or more
sunlight] may be needed. But
don't stop there. Check your
diet, exercise habits and other
lab values to find the real
cause of the deficiency.

$420,000. It would be irresponsible
of me in this economic climate to
make all the improvements. I believe
these improvements already meet their
needs," adding that the city "can't
afford" a gym or conference room for
BSO.
"Where we are is a complete dis-
grace. We are the laughing stock of
all 17 district offices," said Gooding.
Commissioners agreed.
"Everyone agrees your offices are
pathetic, and we need to do something
about them," said Mayor Roseann
Minnet.
Gooding said in an interview that
his plans called for making "a normal
district office," with a wired interview
room, offices for him and another for
an executive officer, a smaller office
for sergeants, a roll call area, detective
area, conference room, a holding cell
and sally port.
"Everyone is taking hits, includ-
ing us. We all have to tighten our
belts," said Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee.
"These will be outstanding offices for
these guys, but to spend that kind of
money is not a wise move."
Colon said the renovations she
proposed were very fair and reason-
able. Funds would come from the
Law Enforcement Trust Fund, which
contains $284,000.
Gooding said the cutbacks weren't
legitimate and said, "It's obvious there
are some ulterior motives."
Commissioner Birute Clottey said
when she first saw the plans, she was
a little shocked.
"When I heard 'Star Wars,' I envi-
sioned something different from beau-
tiful gyms. Plans have to be pared
down, there's no question. The crooks
gave us that money, but let's spend


it wisely." When he first brought up
plans for modifications in March,
Gooding told commissioners that with
improvements, "We will have an up-
to-date, 2009 police department. By
the time we're through, compared to
what we have now, we'll be like 'Star
Wars.'"
Commissioner Jim Silverstone
said he is a needs kind of person, not
wants. He said he would rather go
toward more police protection than a
gym.
Gooding said the seized funds can't
be used for anything but training and
equipment.
Gooding added that the plans
include a room with a treadmill and
stationery bike, not a gym.
The chief reminded commissioners
that they bought a hotel, not a police
building for their public safety build-
ing. He said BSO was never consulted
when the building was purchased.
"You spent a lot of money. And
you're spending $40,000 on the 4th
of July for one day. From a profes-
sional chief's position, this is what we
needed. If I were asking for what we
wanted, we would be wolverines ask-
ing you to build a new police depart-
ment."
"Do we need a cell? We make 300
arrests a year, and now they're chained
to a shackle. It's dangerous. We need a
certified cell." Minnet said spending
$240,000 was doable and would favor
approving a major part of that "so the
sheriff has an office to be proud of."
Commissioners approved spending
$10,000 for professional services by
O'Campo & Associates for profes-
sional services on the police facility
improvement project. The vote was 4
to 0. Commissioner Stuart Dodd was
not at the meeting.
Colon said once they have the plans,
they will know the cost of improve-
ments.

PELICAN STAFF
In a city surrounded by water from the ocean to the myriad of canals, this
month's opening of a dry-storage marina will offer a new venue for housing
vessels during calm weather and hurricanes. Andrew Stumer hosted the open-
ing of the Aquamarina Hidden Harbor, 2315 NE 15 St,, owned by Aqua Marine
Partners, or AMP, this month with city officials and hundreds residents attend-
ing.
The 384 dry-stack slips hurricane-proof marina was built just in time for hur-
ricane season.
"This marina is built according to South Florida's building code requirements
to withstand Category 4 winds of 140 mph," said Sturner.
"And we built it beyond the state's requirements."
The dry storage marina can house vessels up to 43 feet
long. Some boat owners are already planning to store
their boats at Hidden Harbor in case of a hurricane.
"It's important for boat owners to have a hurricane
plan," said Sturner. "We offer an insurance plan for these
owners who don't need dry storage during the year, but
with our plan they can bring their boats for storage here in
case of a hurricane."
Besides the insurance plan, which is good for one year, boat owners also pay
to lift the boat out of the water into the storage area.
"It doesn't make any difference how many hurricanes we have," says Sturner.
"They can come back for storage for every hurricane during that year."
Those who have insurance are called when a hurricane warning is issued.
Once the vessels are safe in the dry-storage marina, the building is locked for
the duration of the hurricane.
"When it's over, we call the owners, and they take their boats back," Stumer
said.
Aquamarina Hidden Harbor is a full-service facility and ship yard with a
75-ton travel lift, high speed-gas and diesel pumps, ice, bait, pumpout and a
well-stocked ship's store.

Dr. Rosa Sanchez at Lovin' Smiles Dental Group gets her patients


on the road to healthy smiles with precision, care and expertise


Dr. Rosa Sanchez is a graduate of the University of Missouri Dental School. She is a member of the American Dental
Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry and is a fellow with the
International Congress of Oral Implantology. She has practiced dentistry for 14 years. [Staff Photo]


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Dr. Rosa Sanchez and her
staff at Lovin' Smiles Dental
Group live up to their philoso-
phy about dentistry.
"I love dentistry. I can see
immediately the changes I
make," says Dr. Sanchez. "It is
so gratifying when people are
happy."
A visit to Dr. Sanchez's of-
fice, located at 2323 NE 2:6
Ave., Pompano Beach, reveals
a waiting room full of floral ar-
rangements and art, designed to
provide a calming atmosphere.
And once inside the operator,
beautiful gardens with plants,
flowers and small ponds should
add to the relaxation of the
experience.
Dr. Sanchez understands
the stigma associated with the
practice of dentistry, so she
makes extra time for the first
appointment.
"I want to spend a lot of time
with the patient on that first
visit. "We develop a rapport,"
she adds. "We want a good
relationship. The patient must
have trust in the dentist."
Dr. Sanchez is a long time
professional dentist who is ded-
icated to making her patients'
procedures as pleasurable and
stress free as possible. She
uses some of the latest equip-
ment and technology in her
practice.
Aside from delivering
comprehensive dental care, it's
very important for Dr. San-
chez to reduce risk of disease
linked to dental bacteria. She
emphasizes the importance of
precision dentistry in control-
ling the access of inflammatory
bacteria to the body through
ill-fitting restorations, bio-film
accumulation and periodontal
disease.
"If the patient is educated
about maintenance, those big


dental jobs are very rare," she
says.
She explains that everyone
has a different need when it
comes to maintenance.
"Most people think they
need cleaning twice a year.
But that's not always the
case. Everyone's bacteria are
different. Some people never
touch a toothbrush and have
no cavities. Others brush
three times a day and come in
with cavities."
A good hygiene regime is
the best way to avoid compli-
cated procedures.
"It's never a good idea
to wait until tooth pain is
severe," says Dr. Sanchez.
"Sometimes we can see a
problem long before the
patient can feel it."

Cosmetic procedures
"I know cosmetic dentistry
sounds like what people can't
afford, but teeth are the focal
point of beauty," Dr. Sanchez
says. "The mouth says so
much about a person and
how they take care of them-
selves."
Lovin' Smiles Dental
Group is proud to offer
ZOOM! Whitening technolo-
gy, the latest in teeth whiten-
ing treatments.
The procedure takes
between 45 minutes and an
hour. A gel is placed on the
teeth and a special light is
used to produce whiter and
healthier-looking teeth.
New patients may be
eligible for a special ZOOM!
price by visiting Dr. San-
chez's website at www.
loveursmile.com.
Another way to create a
whiter smile is through ve-
neers, which can also correct
problems with malaligned
teeth, close gaps and change

Local artist, Pat Anderson, serves up a reopening of shop, studio


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Pat Anderson has captured
a large piece of the Island art
industry from her small studio
in Lighthouse Point.
She and her late husband,
Pete, spent much of their
romance and marriage sailing


the Bahamas and the Carib-
bean where Pat found her
subjects mostly in nature from
the bright Hibiscus to the cool
decks of island homes.
When Pete died last year
after a long illness, painting
helped heal Pat's grief.
Pete was as much a part of
her painting as the brushes


she used to create her colorful
canvases.
"He took care of everything,
and I stayed in the studio and
painted," says Pat.

of grief, the details and the
awareness of what Pete had

BEAUTIFUL SMILE

BEAUTIFUL YOU
by Manon Bourque Hutchison, D.D.S.

A SMILE AS YOUTHFUL AS YOUR FACE


Interestingly, the American Dental
Association notes that teeth were
"designed" to last only about 30 years,
which means they may need a little help
in keeping up appearances. Aside from
the usual problems of decay and
discoloration, older adults face other
potential problems that can undercut the
youthfulness of their smiles. For
instance, the incisors (or canines) wear
down as the years pass, leaving less
enamel exposed below the upper lip
when a person smiles. Moreover, teeth
drift toward the center of the mouth as
the bone and tissues that hold them in
place weaken with age. As a result, teeth
can appear crowded and unevenly
distributed. Fortunately, there are
cosmetic procedures available that can
help restore a smile's youthfulness.
One of the first things people notice
Coconut Creek Office
5359 Lyons Road, Coconut Creek, FL 33073

is your smile. If chipped, stained, or
crooked teeth are hidin,,,rg ire real you,
it's time for a smile make over with the
practice of MANON BOURQUE
HUTCHISON, D.D.S.Regular dental
examinations are important because
problems can generally be detected in
the early stages. Please feel free to
discuss all of your oral health concerns
with us. We stress preventive dentistry
and recommend regular dental check-
ups for all family members. Come in and
see what a difference we can make in
your smile and what a difference your
smile can make in your life. We welcome
your call to schedule an appointment.
P.S. If a lost tooth is not replaced with
either an implant or a bridge, adjacent
teeth will move to fill the space, disrupting
the function and appearance of the
remaining teeth.

has been a long time friend of
Houston.
"He's a fine person and has
always been instrumental in
helping anybody in the com-
munity. He and I worked at
Ely for years. He was the
physical education instructor
and always went out of his
way to mentor his students
and his players on the football
field and basketball court.
They couldn't have given this
honor to a more deserving
person," said Jones.
Sworn, also a former Ely
High teacher, moved through
the Broward County system
to become an administrator at
Plantation High School.
Sworn is also active mem-
ber of Bethel AME Church
in Pompano Beach where he
teaches Sunday School.
Commissioner Woody
Poitier, who was on hand for
the ceremony, said he was
proud of the city's choice of
both men.
"Sam has been a vital part
of the community forever,"
said Poitier, another Ely grad.
"Sam and his wife Millicent
are staunch supporters of their
church. Sam serves on the
board of trustees. I know and
admire both of them. I swam
under Mr. Houston when I
was on the Ely swim team.
I'm so glad that the city has
honored them. We should
have done this a long time
ago. Both of these guys have
touched a lot of people. It's
good that this finally hap-
pened to these good people."

a 504,000 gallon Myrtha

designed to conform to the
National Federation of State
High School Associations
Swimming and Diving Water
Pool Rules Book.
The pool has nine racing
lanes of 25 yards and a dive
well with a depth of 12' 6"
and two Duraflex 1-meter div-
ing boards.
The pool also features a 75
x 30 foot Learn to Swim area
which will be used by Swim

has a long history of provid-
ing water safety instruction in
the community.
The pool temperature is
regulated by a geo-thermal
system with the capacity to
both heat and cool the water
and a custom pool blanket to
help insulate the pool when
the ambient air temperature
drops to an uncomfortable
level. The facility has a
mobile handicap pool lift,
concession area, storage area,
family room with diaper
changing table, ticket area,
men's and women's shower
and restroom areas, automatic
pool cleaner and lifeguard
office and break rooms. The
cost of the Aquatic Center and
Myrtha Competition Pool was
$3.3 million.

done to run their fashion
and gift shop at the Shoppes
of Beacon Light, My Own
Cruising Journal, is still a blur
to Pat.
A cruise to St. Thomas
and some time with friends,
helped Pat to gird up the
courage to step back into her
work and her beloved art.
While in St. Thomas, Pat
began to experiment with
the art of plein air, the art
of painting in plain air, a
common term for artists who
paint what they see when they
see it.
After returning home to
Lighthouse Point, she began


to make some changes in
her life. She found that as
a widow, her habits were
changing.
"Pete and I always enjoyed
the Lighthouse Point Yacht
Club and its amenities. But
after returning, I found it
impossible to enjoy all those
things alone."
But that did not keep Pat
away from the club where she
had so many good memories.
Club owners understood the
problem and solved it by
making Pat the Lighthouse
Point Yacht & Racquet Club's
"artist in resident," a position
Pat was thrilled to take.
Pat is now a regular at
the club on Friday evenings
involved in her art and often
painting the entertainers at


,%;i

L


work. "Art became fun and
colorful again," says Pat.
And that encouraged Pat to
take on more projects.
Since 1987 Pat has painted
at Cat Cay, a private island
near Bimini.
Much of her art has become
a favorite among the yacht
captains and homeowners.
She recalls one of her
favorite moments last Easter
when a musical sensation
came over the waters from
Miami to Cat Cay.
"This past Easter weekend,
the owners of homes in Cat
Cay near Bimini, brought
over 50 musicians from the
Miami Symphony, directed
by Eduardo Marturet and
set them up in a tent on the
golf course by the marina.
Everyone came to the
performance. There were no
photographers. I painted the
whole event."
Pat has recently moved her
art studio into her shop at
Beacon Light and is planning
a grand re-opening July 2
through 4.
She will feature her Ship to
Shore Cookbooks at the event,
and those who purchase them
will receive a gift to making
cooking the recipes more fun.
Added to that the chef from
The Fin & Claw Restaurant
will be offering a tasting of
Island Crab Cakes throughout
the three days of the event.

the shape and color of teeth.
And since cosmetic dentistry
has such a profound impact on
the patient's appearance and
especially the patient's smile,
Dr. Sanchez encourages her
patients to wear temporary
versions of the final product
for about a week.
"In that period, they have
the option to change the bite,
length or another aspect," she
says. "Once they are happy,
we can make the permanent
changes."
Lovin' Smiles Dental
Group offers general and
advanced cosmetic dentistry,
crowns, bridges, implants and
complete denture service.
All materials are mercury-


free and of the highest
quality.
Being a general, cosmetic,
and implant reconstructive
dentist, Dr. Sanchez offers
a myriad of options from
full mouth cosmetic teeth
reconstruction, porcelain
laminate veneers, bonding,
inlays, onlays, tooth colored
fillings, one hour teeth
whitening, crowns, gum
treatment, dentures and
implant-retained dentures.
Healthy gums are the
bedrock for beautiful teeth.
While most people are
quickly aware of toothaches,
gum disease has no symptoms
until the condition is well
advanced, Dr. Sanchez says.
"It's up to us, the dentists,
to let patients know when
gum disease appears," Dr.
Sanchez says.


"Gum disease can lead to
tooth loss due to destruction
of supporting structures like
bone or gingiva [gums]."
Lovin' Smiles Dental
Group also has a periodontist
available for patients who
require special attention.
Dr. Sanchez is a graduate
of the University of Missouri
Dental School. She is a
member of professional
organizations such as the
American Dental Association,
the American Academy of
Cosmetic Dentistry,
the Academy of General
Dentistry, and fellow with the
International Congress of Oral
Implantology.
She has practiced general
and cosmetic dentistry for 14
years. Call 954-941-7048 for

"Table 12, we get a lot of
requests for table 12," says
Bill Sand, co-owner of the
Wine Cellar restaurant on
Oakland Park Boulevard in


Oakland Park.
For the uninitiated, table
12 is the booth that abuts
the aviary full of cockatiels,
lovebirds and quakers.
Through the glass, the 62
vivacious birds provide an
amusing distraction while
the friendly waitress, Fuji,
brings a plate of tasty potato
pancakes as a free appetizer.
The ambiance is cozy,
reminiscent of a Swiss chalet
full of German beer steins.

the servers are happy to offer
wine. The selection ranges
from Californian to Italian to
French and comes at a very
reasonable price, $30 to $34 a
bottle.
There is also a large
selection of Foxbrook house
wines that can be enjoyed
by the glass. A luscious
Chardonnay or White
Zinfandel provides the ideal
accompaniment to enjoy
with one of their signature
appetizers the Wine Cellar
Escargot.
This dish overflows with
plump snails and hearty
mushrooms bathing in
an unctuous garlic butter
sauce. A true delight for
snail aficionados. The Wine
Cellar is a perfect spot for an
outing with close friends or a
romantic evening with your
significant other. Although
originally focused on
Continental European cuisine,
this quaint eatery has recently
had its menu revamped to
reflect a more cosmopolitan
outlook. Most notably, the
lobster and prime rib dinners
that are now being offered on
Surf n' Turf Thursdays.
A sweet 114 lbs. Maine
lobster is served with
delectable drawn butter and
a portion of fresh steamed
veggies. The prime rib has
become a true fan favorite as
well.
At the extraordinary
price of $12.95 and $13.95
respectively, it goes without
saying that reservation are
required.

Wine Cellar
Continued from page 14

On Wednesday, the second
dinner is free with a second
beverage purchase. On
Friday, the Wine Cellar holds
its Fish & Chip evening.
All meals come with potato
pancakes, warm onion bread,
soup or salad, one side dish,
home-style red cabbage,
cream of spinach and, most
importantly, friendly service.
Hoteliers and restaurateurs
Bill Sand and Bill Davis have
worked hard to ameliorate the
menu of this Florida stalwart.
Originally established in
1976 by German native
Achim Samtlebe, some of the
other menu changes include
Chicken Paprikash and
Rahmschnitzel," said Sand.
The Chicken Paprikash
features tender chicken breast
saut6ed with red peppers in a
creamy paprika sauce, while
the Rahmschnitzel involves
veal cutlets with portabella
mushrooms in a white wine
cream sauce.
Other house specialties
include Hungarian veal
goulash, pork loin roast, aged
New York Strip steak and
Austrian Wienerschnitzel.
For seafood lovers, the
trout, salmon and shrimp
offerings will be sure to
please.
A popular dish is the
Grouper Fran9ais, a
mouthwatering fillet of the
white fish dusted with flour,
egg and saut6ed with a light
white wine garlic sauce.
On the poultry front, the
Chicken Hunter and Cornish
Hen stuffed with sage sausage
are great crowd pleasers.
Another star of the show is
the Roasted Duck with plum
ginger sauce.
"The duck is really
outstanding. We have been
here three times in the last
seven days because of it,"
says area resident and patron
Don Greene.
The majority of main
courses are priced between
$14 and $18. The Wine Cellar
is open starting at 4 p.m.
Wednesday through Sunday.
There is ample parking,
wheelchair accessibility and
major cards are accepted.
The Wine Cellar also offers
a fantastic Early Bird Special.
All complete dinners come
with a glass of wine and
homemade dessert for under
$15. The restaurant is also
available for private parties or
corporate functions.
All soups, salad dressings,
stocks, sauces and desserts are
made in-house from scratch
on a daily basis.
With this profound attention
to quality, your first dinner at
the Wine Cellar will likely not
be your last.

Deerfield Beach
Commissioner Bill Ganz
is asking his fellow
commissioners to follow
the lead set by the City of
Weston, and encouraged by


the Metropolitan Planning

governments in a lawsuit
challenging Florida Senate
Bill 360.
Civic leaders say the bill,

unconstitutional. It
establishes far reaching


development procedures for
cities to follow in the areas
of transportation, schools and

"It strips the cities of their

It may look barren, but scrubland is home to some rare species


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Right under our feet,
growing in between the
sandspurs, is an endangered
Curtiss Milkweed plant,
known to exist in only one
other natural environment in
Broward County.
Not far away is a nodding
pinweed, also on the
endangered list. The needles
of a sand pine give off its
citrusy smell, a prickly pear
flourishes, silk grass abounds,
the delicate October flower
withstands the hot sun.
These plants and the others
on this 10-acre sand pine
scrub won't ever again be lost
to a developer's backhoe.
The newly-named Deerfield
Highlands Nature Preserve, on
the edge of the Tallman Pines
neighborhood, was acquired
for $1.3 million from the Safe
Parks and Land Preservation
Bond issue.
Construction will begin next
year to build picnic areas, a
playground and eventually
trails through the native
landscape.
What has been a haven
for drug users will become a
safe home for native growth
disregarded by many as an all-
too-common sight in South
Florida.
But the facts are that only
two percent of Florida's sand
pine scrub land remains.
This site is 21 feet above
sea level and extremely dry,
qualities that made it the
cheapest land to develop.
Twice this parcel was cleared
for development before being
bought by the county.
Besides its hospitality
toward drought-tolerant
plants, it is home to a
peninsula mole skink a
lizard-like reptile which has
not been seen anywhere else
in Broward.
The trick to developing
such areas is to provide
public access while protecting
nature, Linda Briggs, a natural
resource specialist with


Broward County said.
Exotic plans will be
removed and native scrub
species will be reseeded.
An occasional controlled
bum will maintain the scrub
vegetation.
Community activist Ginger
Alvarez is hoping residents

Double your
gas mileage
with Hyper-
Miling
By Norbert Izworski
PELICAN WRITER
In April, during a fundraiser
for Juvenile Diabetes, a world
mileage record was set in the
Washington DC area during
the "1000 Mile Challenge."
Using the techniques of
"Hyper-miling," a stock 2010
Ford Fusion Hybrid, a mid-
sized car that already gets
an impressive 41 miles per
gallon obtained an average
of 81.5 mpg. It was driven
1445.7 miles on a single
tank of gas using mileage-
maximizing techniques.
Wayne Gerdes, an engineer
from Illinois who coined
the term, 'hyper-miling'


trained the driving team. The
techniques can be viewed in
detail on his website, www.
CleanMPG.com and will work
with any vehicle to exceed the
EPA's estimated mileage for
your car.
Here are some of the most
effective techniques.
Calculate your mpg with
every fill up. That way
you can compare driving
techniques to mileage.
Don't speed. Due to wind
drag, driving 65 mph instead
of 75 mph can increase mpg
by 25 percent.
If your car ordinarily gets 30
mpg, slowing to 65 can give
you up to 37.5 mpg.
Accelerate gradually.
Slowing your 0 to 60 mph
acceleration time from
10 seconds to 15 seconds
improves city gas mileage.
Minimize braking by
maintaining a safe distance
between vehicles, and


coasting up to stoplights and
signs. Drivers apply their
brakes between 10 and 25
percent more than they need
to.
On the highway rolling
up the windows and using
the air conditioning reduces
wind drag and improves gas
mileage.
However, in city traffic
it is best to shut off the air
conditioning and open the
windows.
Wind drag is significant at
speeds above 60 mph.
At highway speeds, use
cruise control to maintain a
steady speed.
In city driving, minimize
idling. For long delays
consider shutting off the
engine.
Always keep tires at the
recommended air pressure.
Remove unnecessary weight
from your car. Each 100
pounds could reduce your


mpg by up to 2 percent.
In short, learning to be a
smart driver rather than an
aggressive driver can increase
your mpg by up to 37 percent.
At the conclusion of the
1,000 Mile Challenge, Gil
Portalation, Ford Hybrid


application manager, observed
that through 'hyper-miling,'
drivers become more aware
of their driving because they
are constantly searching for
opportunities to maximize
mileage, and a more aware
driver is also a safer driver.


I saw it in the newspaper!
In the belief that newspapers still provide the public with the
best coverage of news in their communities, we are offering
readers of The Pelican some summer fun.
Each week we will publish three questions about facts
covered in stories we ran in the last three months. First reader
to email in the CORRECT answers, receives four free tickets to
Muvico.
Questions this week are taken from stories published in
March, April and May, not necessarily in that order.
1. Two Northeast Broward women were named to the Bro-
ward Senior Hall of Fame recently. Who are they?
2. A tough Code of Ethics was approved in Deerfield Beach.
What former city commissioner pushed for the new regula-
tions?
3. What restaurant chain, once one of the fastest growing in
Florida, has reopened in Pompano Beach?

making the site less attractive
as a hangout.
The future park was named
by county library employee
Frank Scaduto, who only saw
an aerial of the tract, but came
up with the appropriate words,
finally choosing Preserve over
Sanctuary, he said.
With such natural areas in
short supply, it is worth noting
that east of Dixie Highway at
Northeast 40 Street, another
scrub pine area has been pre-
served.

Dive Flag
Continued from page 1

main attraction for visitors
seeking water sports.
Gary Thomas, Force E
SCUBA Center, 2700 East
Atlantic Blvd., has been div-


ing off Florida's Shores for 30
years.
He says there have been
times when he has had to go
to the surface and wave-off
boats that were getting to
close to where he and other
divers were.
Over the last five years,


according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife officials, 22 div-
ers were killed or injured in
Florida after being struck by
boats.
It's a law that divers have
flags and boats, by law, must
stay 300 feet from a dive flag.
Dive boats are also required
to fly a flag.
"A lot of people don't know
the Florida flag law," says
Thomas. "Some people come
down here from Sweden and
they don't know what the flag
means. They jet ski around
the flags like it's a race
course."
International visitors may
not recognize the Florida dive
flag which is red with a white
diagonal stripe because they


are accustomed to the interna-
tional dive flag which is blue
and white
Lt. David Bingham, an
FWC watch commander
stationed in South Florida, be-
came very familiar with div-
ing dangers after investigating
several injuries and fatalities.
"Obviously, divers don't
want to be struck by a boat,
and boaters don't want to
strike anyone either," Bing-
ham said.
Bingham conducts an
annual "Wave the Flag"
enforcement detail targeting
dive-flag-related violations
in South Florida. He is on a
mission to promote dive-flag
awareness and is encouraged
by the proclamation.

Two flags share the same meaning
* Alpha Dive Flag
Most American divers and boaters are familiar with the red-and-white diver-down flag. Many have
also seen a blue-and-white swallow-tailed one and think of it as the international diver-down flag.
Florida Dive Here's more of the story. Over the past 200 years international maritime tradition and law has
Flag established a set of signal flags, including flags for each letter of the alphabet. The blue-and-white
swallow-tailed flag is the signal flag for the letter "A." For clarity, this is pronounced phonetically
as alfaa" or "alpha."
When used independently, most alpha-numeric signal flags also have a specific meaning. The al-
pha flag used to mean "I am undergoing a speed trial." Now the International Code of Signals has
International established it to mean:
Dive or Alpha "I have a diver down; keep well clear at slow speed."
Flag


"We want folks to enjoy
diving without having to look
over their shoulder wonder-
ing if they are going to be
hit," Bingham said. "It's time
folks pay attention to what a
divers-down flag means and
to 'steer clear,' and divers
need to make sure they pres-
ent their flags according to the
laws."
A divers-down flag used on
a vessel must be displayed
whenever divers or snorkelers
are in the water.
The divers-down flag is red
with a white diagonal stripe. It
must be at least 20 inches by
24 inches and flown at a high
point, observable 360 degrees
around the vessel.
A divers-down flag towed
on a float must be at least 12
inches by 12 inches. It must
have a wire or other stiffener
to hold it open.
Divers and snorkelers must
make every reasonable effort
to stay close to their flag.
When they exit the water,
the divers-down flag must be
taken down.
"It is imperative that divers
and snorkelers remove the
divers-down flag once they
are out of the water other-
wise, the presence of the flag
becomes meaningless to boat-
ers," Bingham said.
"The display of the flag
should never be used for any
other reason than what it is in-
tended to indicate there are
persons in the water. Using it
for any other reason is danger-
ous and unlawful."
All vessels must make a rea-
sonable effort to stay at least
100 feet away from a divers-
down flag within a river, inlet
or channel.
In open waters, vessels must
make a reasonable effort to
stay 300 feet away from a div-
ers-down flag. Within those
prescribed distances, a vessel
may operate but must be at
idle speed.
"With bay scallop and spiny
lobster season just around the
corner, the FWC, our marine
law enforcement partners,
the governor and the cabi-
net members really want to
emphasize the importance of
engaging all safety precau-
tions, including the use of
divers-down flags," Bingham
said.
"If you're diving, display a
flag. If you're boating, look
for the flag."

An open letter to my friends and neighbors in Deerfield Beach and surrounding areas


We have had a lot of change recently and most of it isn't good. With so much change and new information how do you
make good consistent financial decisions?
'To be an intelligent investor; you must cultivate a firmness of character, the ability to keep your own council"-Benjamin
Graham.
Twenty three years ago I began my career providing investment advice to police officers, school teachers and other union
employees in regards to their retirement accounts and pension plans.. .for free. A relationship develops and trust is built over
years of consistency. As an investment advisor people rely on your advice and do well because of it. As that relationship
continues to evolve your investments start to take shape and you start to own your plan. There will be events such as births,
celebrations, death; with each bring more change and will build character.
In addition to the many mandatory licenses that I must qualify for (series 6,26,63) Life Insurance, Health, Annuities, Long
Term Care and Partnership Long Term in New York, Florida, California (and many other states) there is ongoing advanced
education as well the mandatory continuing education to maintain these licenses. In addition I am affiliated with:
"Ed Slott's Master Elite Advisor"- TM program for advance tax and retirement income planning. In this program, there are
many planning modules which go in to deep detail for planning and solving financial unknowns. There are classes for
advisors around the country and a test that must be successfully passed every six months to maintain qualifications.
A member in good standing of the Financial Planning Association and adhere to its code of ethics.
Serve on the Advisory Council of the Financial Services Institute in Washington DC which works with the Senate and
Congress for investor advocacy and education.
I enjoy teaching my clients and friends what we do so they can communicate with their friends and family in an effort to
help them understand as well.
The last point is something everyone can relate to. Having the strength of a company that is not part of a company.. .or
owned by other companies. LPL (Linsco Private Ledger/Mutual Service Corporation) has a forty year history and is the
largest independent broker/dealer in the world. It is that strength that gives me the confidence to which gives me so much
pleasure from helping people add value to their lives.

Garden


Continued from page 3
Tedder Garden on Northeast
44 Street consists of the green
canopy buffering 1-95, a
grove of fruit trees in the
center of the acreage and on
the east side, an extension
of a community garden that
has already begun to produce
some food.
This year 20 urban garden-
ers were given plots in which
to grow vegetables.
The results were mixed.
People tend to come and go,
Mary Pittman said. The fact
remains the plots are available


to anyone who wants to till
the soil and some homeless
people have taken advantage
of the offer, she said. Melons,
collards, herbs were among
this year's crop.
The grant funds, $10,000,
which will buy 300 trees, na-
tive plants and ground cover,
were a gift from the Tedder
Neighborhood Watch. In the
future, Boswell said he hopes
funds will come through faith-
based organizations, rather
than from the government.
The agricultural aspects of
the project are overseen by
Alfonso, a South African with
experience in hard-scrabble
farming. "We though we had

"Turns out our first pastor
