Rickard's injuries resulted in six
months of rehabilitation at St. Albans
Naval Hospital in Queens, N.Y.
According to Rickards even in the
hospital, protest groups sought out
Vietnam veterans to taunt. The Viet-
nam uniform did not get a "welcome
home" from many Americans.
After his medical discharge, Rickard
took a clerk's position on Wall Street.
"I tried to blend in with society," he
says. "I wore a suit and just pretended
I was like everyone else."
"I just stuffed it," he says.
And one day, looking down from
his office on Wall Street, Rickard
witnessed a riot on the street below.
The event confirmed his first decision

Donald Rickard, a Vietnam veteran,
served in the U.S. Marines for nine
months. His tour was cut short when
his team was shelled by troops of the
North Vietnamese Army as they tried
to clear a strip just below a demilita-
rized zone.
"We were a demolition team. We
blew up dud rounds on the strip so
the North Vietnamese Army couldn't
cross over into the South," he says.
But it was just that cleared strip of
land that the enemy took advantage of
when they shelled Rickard and three
others caught in the open.
"We were sitting ducks. They fired
105-mm rounds from inside the
demilitarized zone. They zeroed in on

Both companies were the

47th Annual Holiday Boat Parade set for Dec. 13
There's a reason that captains come home with the prize, and
on Nov. 7, the secret will be out: how to decorate your boat for
the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat parade.
After that, it all comes down to the imagination.
Lowe's Home Improvement Center has scheduled a free
seminar on Saturday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to noon for captains
interested in decorating their boats for the holiday parade.
Lowe's is located in the Pompano Citi Centre at 1851 North
Federal Highway.
The parade, which has no entry fee for boats is scheduled for
Dec. 13, and will be judged in several categories for boats of
all sizes.
Participating boats will line-up in Pompano's Lake Santa
Barbara on the evening of Dec.13, before heading north up the
Intracoastal Waterway passing through Lighthouse Point, Hill-
sboro Beach before ending in Deerfield Beach at the Hillsboro
Boulevard Bridge. The winners will be honored at an Awards
Ceremony in January at a location to be announced later.
To enter a boat, call the Greater Pompano Beach Chamber

Pompano Beach foreclosures rapidly increasing at one a day


~'h~rrss~U~~:By ~~ldAppitmn


By Anne Siren
,
PELICAN STAFF
Foreclosures are a daily
nightmare reaching propor-
tions of one a day in Pom-
pano Beach, particularly in
the most recently annexed
neighborhoods of the Pom-
pano Beach Highlands and
Cresthaven.
One thousand homes in the
city now owned by banks, and
another 4,000 homeowners
are over 90-days late in pay-
ing their mortgages.
In addition to homeowners
losing their homes, neighbor-
hoods are impacted with ne-
glected lawns, empty houses
and pools.
Commissioner Charlotte
Burrie, who lives in Crest-
haven explains part of what
happened. "When the housing
boom was booming, banks
were offering mortgages at 80
to 90 percent with a second
mortgage HELO, or Home

Over $2 million of Pompa-
no's NSP funds were recently
earmarked for an affordable
housing rental complex, a
stipulation allowed for the
funds.

"Those buyers were 'upside
down' the minute they put the
key in the front door," Burrie
said. "When the housing mar
ket bottomed out, they had no
way to pay those mortgages.
They had nothing to lose by
walking away."
On Tuesday, Assistant
City Manager Willie Hop-
kins will join residents at
the monthly meeting of the
Pompano Beach Highlands
Civic Improvement Associa-
tion to discuss the city's role
in mitigating the problems
that accompany foreclosed
properties.
Earlier this year, Pompano
Beach received $4.3 million
of stimulus funds earmarked
for a Neighborhood Stabiliza-
tion Program, or NSP.
The city had requested more
than $18 million. The funds
will be used to deal with fore-


a land bank or purchase the
home, renovate it and sell it.
"No money will be used to
help people make payments,"
says Hopkins. "But we have
been able to hold free foreclo-
sure seminars [for residents]
to talk to attorneys about loan
modifications. There has been
some success." [See page 6

While attending the Ameri-
can Academy of Cosmetic
Dentistry annual meeting in
Hawaii, Dr. Manon Hutchi-
son heard about the group's
charitable foundation program
called 'Give Back A Smile'
which enlists dentists to vol-
unteer their expertise to help
domestic violence survivors.
"I wanted to become part
of this program," she says,
"and I am now working with
a woman who calls me her
'tooth angel.' She told me
that her children have tooth
fairies and now she has me,
,,
her tooth angel.
I am doing a full mouth
reconstruction for her. Her
former husband punched her
repeatedly on one side of her
mouth which wrecked all of
her teeth and their alignment.

root canals to save her teeth. I
am providing her with crowns
and bridges. She drives here
from Fort Pierce, and we
spend full days working with
her. I have already spent over
five full days, and there's
more to come."
Hutchison is a volunteer
who wants to be sure that
recognition is given to Dr.
Marcus for his root canal
work and to Sam Schwartz,
owner of Technics, her lab
that donates the crowns. She
says, "Our patient is so grate-
ful and happy. She will look
like a new person when we
are done. I feel rewarded to
be able to do this, and so does
everyone involved including
my assistant, Maria Resto and
our hygienists, Eddie Carteya
and Jose Gamboa."
Hutchison admits that the
total procedure if paid for
would total over $35,000. "I
can't describe what a re-
warding feeling I get know-


,iPI


ing I have helped to change
someone's life by improv-
ing her appearance and self
confidence. When I finish, I
will take ori a new patient. I
encourage other professionals
to join me in this wonderful
work which gives us the op-
portunity to make a big differ-
ence in the life of a survivor
of domestic abuse."
Dr. Hutchison has an of-
fice in Coconut Creek and in
Pompano Beach at 2631 E.
Atlantic Boulevard. Her staff
of 18 increases when the sea-
sonal people begin to arrive.
She describes her practice as
a family practice saying, "My


patients are between two and
100. We see children for their
first visit and make sure they
have a good experience and
never fear dentists. I have
teenagers, seniors and every
one in between."
She does basic and cos-
metic dentistry inchiding teeth
whitening, veneers, Invisalign
braces using state of the art
equipment. Her latest ac-
quisition is a Cerec machine
which she describes. "It's a
very costly machine but well
worth it because it makes
crowns and veneers in one
office visit. It saves time for
the patient and lab costs for

They can walk mto a bank

He says it's because banks
prefer cash to a promise of

months to receive.
And to add to the dilemma,
NSP funds have an 18-month

thank you to veterans

By Anne Siren
PUBUSHER
Throughout the world, Americans will pause at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 to
remember veterans of every war that has called them and others to service or to
their deaths.
The day began as Armistice Day in 1919, proclaimed by President Wood-
row Wilson to celebrate the end of World War I as the "war to end all wars."
That would have been nice, but wars to seem to end. Rather wars record the
history of the world.
The World War I armistice took place on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. in 1918 and is
remembered as the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
In the 50s, President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared Armistice Day as
Veterans Day.
Even now as President Obama considers adding troops in Afghanistan, we
continues to change young Americans into soldiers, and if they survive, into
Veterans.
The stories of veterans are unique. They belong to veterans. Those who
have never faced enemies on foreign soil, heard the bullets, felt the fear or wit-
nessed death, can never understand the impact that lasts a lifetime.
Sadly, Americans on the whole failed the veterans who came home from
Vietnam in the 60s. We blamed them for the war Congress had chosen, and we
did not welcome them back. We turned our backs on them-the young people
whose dreams, romances and education had been deferred when their draft
numbers came up.
Very few college students in the 60s wanted to become veterans. Marriages
boomed and babies appeared to lower a young man's status in the draft.
Others wore flowers and sang Peter, Paul and Mary songs.
Some went to Canada. Some became conscientious objectors. Some pulled
every string they had to avoid the bullets of war or becoming a survivor, other-
wise known as a veteran.
On this Veterans Day, all of us can take time to say thank you at one of the
upcoming celebrations to honor veterans during November.
Nov. 11 falls on a Wednesday, and some groups are hosting their celebration
of veterans on other days. But most groups will hold services at 11 a.m.
Sunday, Nov. 8 -American Legion, Post 142, 171 SW 2 St., Pompano
Beach Services begin at 10:45 a.m. Entertainment will.include Heavenly
Hands. The local Boy Scouts will retire flags, and at 11 a.m. Legion members
will have the 11* hour service. The public is welcomed to attend. Hot dogs and
hamburgers will be served following the ceremony.
Other groups will be planning services. Please watch The Pelican for Veter-
ans Day services in your town.

Opinions and Editorials


Are you having trouble keeping up
With your mortgage payments?
*
Have you received a notice om your

lender asking you to contact them?

Don't ignore the letters from your lender
Contact your lender immediately
Contact a HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency:
Toll FREE: 800.569-4287 TTY: 800.877.8339
If you are unable to make your mortgage payment

1. Don't ignore the problem. The further behind you become, the harder it
will be to reinstate your loan and the more likely that you will lose your house.
2. Contact your lender as soon as you realize that you have a problem.
Lenders do not want your house. They have options to help borrowers through
difficult financial times.
3. Open and respond to all mail from your lender. The first notices you re-
ceive will offer good information about foreclosure prevention options that can
help you weather financial problems. Later mail may include important notice
of pending legal action. Your failure to open the mail will not be an excuse in
foreclosure court.
4. Know your mortgage rights. Find your loan documents and read them
so you know what your lender may do if you can't make your payments. Learn
about the foreclosure laws and timeframes in your state (as every state is differ-
ent) by contacting the State Government Housing Office.
5. Understand foreclosure prevention options. Valuable information about
foreclosure prevention (also called loss mitigation) options can be found on the
.
mternet at: www.hud.gov
6. Contact a HUD-approved housing counselor. The U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds free or very low cost housing
counseling nationwide. Housing counselors can help you understand the law
and your options, organize your finances and represent you in negotiations with
your lender if you need this assistance. Find a HUD-approved housing coun-
selor near you or call 800.569.4287 or TTY 800.877.8339.
7. Prioritize your spending. After healthcare, keeping your house should be
your first priority. Review your finances and see where you can cut spending in
order to make your mortgage payment. Look for optional expenses-cable TV,
memberships, entertainment-that you can eliminate. Delay payments on credit
cards and other "unsecured" debt until you have paid your mortgage.
8. Use your assets. Do you have assets-a second car, jewelry, a whole life
insurance policy-that you can sell for cash to help reinstate your loan? Can
anyone in your household get an extra job to bring in additional income? Even
if these efforts don't significantly increase your available cash or your income,
they demonstrate to your lender that you are willing to make sacrifices to keep
your home.
9. Avoid foreclosure prevention companies. You don't need to pay fees for
foreclosure prevention help-use that money to pay the mortgage instead. Many
for-profit companies will contact you promising to negotiate with your lender.
While these may be legitimate businesses, they will charge you a hefty fee (of-
ten two or three month's mortgage payment) for information and services your
lender or a HUD approved housing counselor will provide free if you contact
them.
10. Don't lose your house to foreclosure recovery scams! If any firm claims
they can stop your foreclosure immediately if you sign a document appoint-
ing them to act on your behalf, you may well be signing over the title to your
property and becoming a renter in your own home! Never sign a legal document
without reading and understanding all the terms and getting professional advice
from an attorney, a trusted real estate professional, or a HUD approved housing
counselor.

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea commission splits 3 to 2 in manager evaluation


By Judy Vik
PEUCH WRITER
The third time was the
charm, with commissioners
in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
finally managing to complete
an evaluation of Town Man-
ager Esther Colon.
They evaluated the man-
ager on a 1 to 5 with 5 being
the highest score.
Colon scored high with
three of five commission
members with Mayor Rose-
ann Minnet and Commis-
sioner Stuart Dodd giving her
the lowest scores.
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone gave Colon high marks
and an overall grade of 5.
Clottey scored her a 4+.
Dodd was Colon's harsh-
est critic giving her many 1's
and 2's, rating her overall
"below average, could do bet-
ter." Minnet rated Colon a 3
overall. She said the manager
meets expectations with room
for improvement.
Minnet gave Colon a 2
across the board in personnel
management. She noted the
town has 156 employees for
5,852 residents. The popula-
tion has decreased while num-
ber of employees increased.
She questioned whether the
town needed a full-time as-
sistant town manager or four
full-time finance department
employees.
Clottey scored her mostly
4s and 5s in this area. "She
had to change the culture
to one where [staffJ had to


Minnet said. "If the commis-
sion were better informed
about surplus funds, it may
have opted to reduce village
and give taxpayers a signifi-
cant reduction in this year's
taxes," she wrote.
"If anybody knows
finances in a small town,
more than our town man-
ager, I'd like to see them,"
Silverstone said.
Dodd rated Colon a 4 in
the budget preparation area,
calling it a "first class job.

work," she said. "Staff has
worked hard, and the woman
is fair. I don't like some of
what she tells me, but I'll be
the first to tell you she's fair."
Dodd said the manager
doesn't meet expectations in
personnel management. "Most
of her appointments were
from within, thereby limit-
ing new blood, qualifications
and new experience needed
to help improve town staff
expertise."
Dodd said the manager's
rude, argumentative attitude
trickles down to staff. He
said the commission is not
made aware of staff changes
until after they happen. "The
manager regards this as her
bailiwick and none of the
commission's business," he
said. "She will fire [employ-
ees] if they dare to disagree."
"Her main responsibility
is to manage finances of the
town," Clottey added. "She's
saved us a lot of money and
will continue to do so if she
stays with us."
Minnet says Colon falls
below expectations in the
planning process and creating
long-term goals.
Clottey explained that
"Some of the problems we
can blame on ourselves. She's
said she wants guidance.
Maybe she can tell us what
we need to do to resolve is-
sues."
On relations with govern-
ing body or providing Infor-
mation, Colon scored high
marks from everyone, all 4's


Organizational
Relations
Minnet scored the man-
ager a 3 in this area. "The town
manager meets expectations on
fiscal management except when
it came to the payment of the
loans. The prepayment clause
should have been negotiated
,,
before the payment was made,
she wrote.
The commission recently
approved paying off loans early
and paid $300,000 in prepay-
ment fees.

,,
as she is about no negotiations,

and 5's, in being available to
the commission.
Minnet brought up the
transfer of Broward Sheriff's
Office Chief Scott Gooding,
which Colon did on her own.
"It was ironic that the major-
ity of the commission was out
of town at the time," Minnet
said. "Hopefully, those deci-
sions will be looked at in a
better way.
Clottey also said she
wished she'd known earlier
about the Gooding decision.
She wants the manager to
consult with the commission
before making decisions she
knows have the potential to
become very controversial or
political footballs.
As to relating with the
public Dodd wrote "She
doesn't want to speak to
the press and deflects to the
public information officer
who is left without adequate
information at times. She
speaks down to residents
with demeaning attitude as
evidenced at the last budget
meeting."

The city has eased up a bit
in its refusal to address wage

public employees. In talks last
week with both the firefighters

contract for only one year and
offered the general employ-

Still, Dodd noted, that when the current commission was
organized, the manager knew the town had $18 million. "We
should have been made aware of the situation."
Clottey recommended a monthly session for commission-
ers where the manager or finance manager goes over financial
statements with commissioners, including a summary of cur-
rent assets
Asked for her reaction to the evaluation, Colon said, "No

What you eat may affect not only
your oral health, it may also similarly
influence the health of your entire body.
Researchers have been looking at the
so-called "fermentable carbohydrates"
that form the foundation of the modern
diet. Dentists have been telling us for
years that sugars and starchy foods
increase the risk of tooth decay and
gum disease. These same foods are
also likely linked to the development
of chronic diseases such as heart
disease and diabetes. Thus, tooth
decay and bleeding gums may raise
a red flag that a patient may be at risk
for other chronic health problems. What
is good for the teeth and gums is also
good for the rest of the body.
Diet and nutrition are important

cause he has a real natural eye
for this business. Craig says
Grant already knows more
than most dealers in Florida.
Our whole family is passion-
ate about buying and selling
these fine pieces of art."
"Over half of our business
is done with antique dealers
and designers who constantly
shop our ever changing inven-
tory," Mayor explains, "Many
of our repeat clients started
out just looking around.
When they see that we are not
intimidating and are happy to
educate them with as much
information as they seek,


those lookers become regular
visitors. In Philadelphia we
had a program like the Road
Show on public television and
it was very successful be-
cause, as we all know, folks
are often unaware of the value
of a family heirloom."
Mayor prefers to have
his clients know the value of
their possessions before he
purchases them. "If asked, we
recommend highly regarded,
schooled and certified ap-
praisers before we even look.
We're proud of our reputation
as buyers and sellers."


DAFA is one of the
biggest buyers of estates in
Florida and because of its fas-
cinating decor is often chosen
to be the site for book sign-
ings, recitals and fund raisers.
Mayor says, "We just hosted
a fund raiser for Vizcaya's
Endowment Committee, and
we're hosting a fund raiser for

short layover, he headed to a
local bar.
Within one-half hour, he
was in a fight with a man who
had been antagonizing him.
"I warned him to stop, but
then I thought, 'Here I am,
still in my uniform. Holy
Mackerel, I just got back. I
thought they would be buying
me a drink'," he says. "In-
stead they threw me out."
There were numerous stops
before his plane landed in Bis-
mark, North Dakota. At each
landing he remembers look-
ing out of the plane's window
where soldiers were getting
off and kissing the ground on
one side and caskets were car-
ried out on the other side.
By the time he got home
to his wife and two sons, this
pilot wasn't sure about what
to expect.
"I couldn't get off the
airplane," Hall said. The

war issues. His issues were
his three buddies who were
blown up.
"On Nov. 10, I wanted to
celebrate the birthday of the
U.S. Marine Corps. No matter
where you are, just ask where
the birthday party is, and
you'll find it," he says.
On Sept. 11, 2001, Rickard
stopped stuffing it and got
involved. He now serves as an
officer in the Disabled Ameri_
can Veterans group, located in
Deerfield Beach.
His buddy, Jerry Hall, Air
Force pilot, has had his own
issues with the war. "I served
from 1967 to 1974 and flew
350 combat missions," Hall
says of his four tours.
When Hall returned from
his first tour, just 24 hours
out of the jungle and during a


*Don R ick ard p~,,loses wit~S h on~eofhsta shtclae de-militarized zones. Demolition teams cleared areasl during the


memory opens. He struggles
to continue. "I didn't know if
I could handle it. I wanted to
go back to the jungle. My old-
est son came running up with
open arms crying, 'daddy,
daddy, daddy,'"
Behind his second son and
wife, a sign read, "Welcome
home, Captain Hall."
After Hall returned to Viet-
nam, he flew B-52s for three
more tours.
After his discharge he took
his family to the Adirondacks
in New York, where they
farmed. Hall didn't feel he
could ever adjust to society
again,
Rickard and Hall are
volunteer officers for the
Disabled American Veterans,
or DAV, in Deerfield Beach.
They spend most of their time
focused on other veterans,


and they are the 'go to' men
for any kind of information a
veteran might need.
Ironically, even in their new
tours to assist disabled veter-
ans, they face another enemy,
other groups fraudulently
collecting money in the name
of veterans. -
Rickard and Hall explain
that a Florida statute prohibits
soliciting contributions "by
deception."
Says Rickard, "Service men
who have served under the
flag have a special resentment
for anyone who imperson-
ates a soldier or veteran for
the purpose of defrauding the
public. It's known as 'Sto-
len Valor.' It's very lucrative
to put military uniforms on
people who have never served
in the military and who take
money in the time of war


from a sympathetic public
who believe it will go to vet-
erans. They set up in front of
supermarkets and at intersec-
tions. They have flooded the
state."
Richard Van Houten says he
is a disabled veteran [Desert
Storm], and he too has con-
cerns about others trying to
defraud the public. Van Hou-
ton who served eight years in
the U.S. Army also knows that
his group, Veterans Support
Organization, or VSO, has
been targeted as one of the
controversial groups.
His group, a 501-C3 charity,
is not a congressionally-char-
tered veterans group, but Van
Houten says anyone can raise
funds for veterans.
Yan Houten's charity is for
veterans and homeless people
who dress in military fatigues
and solicit at major intersec-
tions and store fronts.
At the end of the day, the
men, who collect the money
and earn one-third of what
they collect, return to VSO
offices and are strip-searched,
according to Van Houten. "We
don't play around with the
public's money," he explains.
Last year, VSO reported
over $1 million in revenue
with over $491,000 of expens-
es; $403,000 in fund raising
costs and $56,000 in admittis-
trative costs totaling $951,175
in total expenses.
VSO workers pay $16 per
week for the use of fatigue
uniforms. Van Houten says

:::"kren 6 sts.
Van Houten admits that not all
of the solicitors are veterans.
Some are homeless or needy
people. "We dress them alike
for unity," he says. "When we
go to one place and move to
another place, people can tell
by how they look if they have
already contributed."
David Knapp, commander
of Southern area command
posts'Shas nothing but praise

"There will always be
people who claim they [VSO]
don't give it all," says Knapp.
Knapp added that Van

There are no salaries at

he had surveyed the 'competi-

or title business," Hilner
said. So when the hurricane
.
destroyed the big black build-
ing on North A1A, he found
a storefront in the same block
that was both visible and ac-
cessible.
"The storm caused us to
change our business model,"
Hilner said. That change
had a dramatic result: in the
past three years, in what
is believed to be the worst
real estate market in many
years, Ocean Trust Realty
has shown study growth. "In
2008, sales increased 270
percent over 2007," he said.
"We became profitable in our
third year in business."
The progress continues.
Starting with four real estate
agents, Ocean Trust has
attracted 16 top producing
sales people and 2009 figures
are running ahead of last
year.
Hilner believes one reason
for his success is the compa-
ny motto: "People first, then
money." He hires agents who
are people-focused and offers
them a full range of benefits
including health and dental
msurance.

think he can lead the way to

sion."

Just back from a fort-
night in Bangkok, nationally
acclaimed and aptly named
jeweler Mark Silver has
secured all the precious stones
and gems he will require to
produce dazzling pieces for
the upcoming year.
"I go to Thailand to buy
all the stones and raw material
I need to create my designs.
I have associates there who
ensure I get the highest qual-
ity gems at the lowest prices.


These are savings I then
gladly pass on to my cus-

gregarious lapidarist.
Indeed, the price range at
Argenti's is quite remarkable.
,
From $19 Sterling silver
bracelets to $10,000 neck-
laces, we have something for
everyone's taste as well as
budget" says Silver.
The newly opened store
on Commercial Boulevard is
overflowing with beautiful
custom designed items for
both men and women. Gold,
silver, platinum, diamonds,
opals, rubies, sapphires,
emeralds and a host of other
precious and semi-precious

It took five hours for local benefactors to raise $10,000 at
Galuppi's Restaurant this week to help pay medical expenses for
15-year-old Michael Brewer who was set on fire by five teenag-
ers in Deerfield Beach.
According to police reports, the act was a revenge tactic after
Michael called Broward Sheriffs Office when one of the teens
tried to steal his father's bicycle.
Michael w;as doused with alcohol and one of the teens, a
Pompano Beach resident, ignited his clothes with a lighter. Mi-
chael is hospitalized with burns over 65 percent of his body.
All five teens were arrested.
The event was also hosted by Neighbors 4 Neighbors, a CBS
Channel 4 organization that accepts funds for community events
based on the donor's specific request. Pat Galuppi donated bar
receipts during the fund raiser, and patrons filled a donation
bucket with checks, coins and bills. A 50/50 raffle brought in
$2,000 after the winners donated their half of the raffle. To add
your donation for Michael Brewer, visit www.neighbors4neigh-
bors.org and click donation.

Two separate armed robbers
hit same Lighthouse Point
convenience store in two days
Two armed robberies at the Stop & Shop Store 2001 NE 39
St., Lighthouse Point, have left LHP police on the lookout for
two separate suspects.
On Oct. 27, about 5 p.m. a white male entered the store to
inquire about Lottery tickets. From video cameras, the man was
seen lifting his shirt to display a "dark-colored object" in his
waistband. The subject left the store with about $100 in cash
contained in a plastic bag. He ran towards Federal Highway
where he jumped a 4-foot fence and was not seen afterwards.
The subject is white or Hispanic, 20 to 30 years old, black
or brown hair with a high and tight haircut. He was wearing
dark purple sunglasses, a long-sleeved shirt, black shorts with
white stripes on the side and white tennis shoes.
On Oct. 24, two days earlier, the store was robbed by a
white male wearing a white hat and white jacket. The subject
carried a handgun and escaped with an undisclosed amount of
money. Anyone with information should call the Lighthouse
Point Police at 954-942-8080.

Cultural Committee its only
revenue and remains the city's
biggest cultural event. It's in
its 30th year and three years
ago moved to the beach after
being sited in the Cove Shop-
ping Center for most of its
existence and then when mer-
chants complained too loudly,
on NE 2 Street adjacent to
Pioneer Park. The move to
the beach gave the committee
opportunities for expansion
and a much broader audience.
"It's the best thing we ever
did," Standich said.
The Deerfield Beach show
is a favorite among artists.
The exhibit fee is well under
what the area's largest art
show broker, Howard Allen,
charges. Last year, Standish'
and her committee convinced
beach restaurants to provide
lunches and dinners for the
exhibitors.
Local food vendors such
as Hot Tomato and Muddy
Waters were added to the
show and a second beer booth
helped the committee double
its profits.
"We are not the biggest
art show, but we are the nic-
est with good quality work,"
Standich said.
This year, thanks to food
broker Pat McGonigal, a

some funding for the Moon-

The committee's liaison
with the city is Recreation
Supervisor Jan Muenzenmaier
who works out scheduling
details and provides the in-
kind services. Muenzenmaier
is already working on Peanut
Butter and Jam-boree sessions
- an introduction to classical
and orchestral music for chil-
dren that is offered by mem-


bers of the Symphony of the
Americas. Attendees receive
an invitation to the orchestra's
dress rehearsal at the Broward
Center for the Performing
Arts. Standing behind this
educational opportunity is the
Cultural Committee that will
provide both manpower and
money.
Another goal of the com-
mittee is to make Moonlight
Melodies a year-round,
monthly event and name it


First Friday.
There are also plans afoot
to bring Fort Lauderdale Mu-
seum of the Arts programs to
town, starting with a lecture
and slide show on Norman
Rockwell at the Old School-
house.
"One of my goals is to get
more people involved," said
