By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Commissioners in Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea agreed this week to move
forward with appropriating $980,000
to get started on the El Mar Drive
streetscape project.
The vote was 3-2 with Mayor Rose-
ann Minnet and Commissioner Stuart
Dodd voting "absolutely no" and
"absolutely not."
Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee, who put
the item on the Dec. 8 agenda, said,
"It's time to go forward. Let's get it
done, get it moving and hope for the
best. It's money well spent."
Commissioners met with the Master

Sea, Commissioner Birute
Clottey said at Monday's
commission meeting.
Several residents have
complained to her, and she


right to live
wondered what could be done.
She said the biggest problem
was in Washingtonian Park.
Chief Oscar Llerena of the
Broward Sheriff's Office
district office in LBTS said
there are no easy answers, and
he urged caution in drafting
an ordinance regarding the
homeless.
"Miami was the subject
of a massive lawsuit, which
they lost, for harassing the
homeless and violating their
rights," he said.
Susan Trevarthen, town
attorney, said there is a fair
amount of case law and some
pretty contentious litigation in
this area. "Local governments
may not criminalize essential
functions like sleeping," she
said. If they do and "if you
don't have adequate space for
the homeless in your commu-
nity, you're in trouble."
Llerena referred to Pottinger

Landscaper hopes Shady Streets program

will take root again Deerfield Beach


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Want a more arboreal neigh-
borhood?
In the hopes of restoring lost
tree canopy, the City of Deer-
field Beach will plant almost-
free trees in street swales. You
only need to ask, and then, to
organize 19 other homeown-
ers who agree to pay $75 per
tree and to maintain it.
Examples of previous ef-
forts to create 'shady streets'
can be seen on SE 7 and SE 6
avenues where several dozens
homeowners bought in to the
program five years ago and
now rows of foxtail palms


flutter in the breeze.
City Landscaper Harold
Hoyte is reinstituting the tree
program using mitigation
money, i.e. the fee collected
when a tree is removed and
not replaced and fines for
other landscaping infractions.
Those funds go into the Beau-
tification Authority budget
and come out to beautify the
city.
A minimum of 20 trees
must be requested. The
program has been expanded
from single-family- homes
only to condo communities.
"We won't plant trees in gated
neighborhoods," Hoyte said.
"We want the public to enjoy

them too. It's public money."
Hoyte will come out and as-
sess the area and recommend
the proper trees depending on
the site and existing foliage.
There are 10 approved spe-
cies on his list. When the trees
are selected, city crews will
deliver and install them.
"I'm trying this time for di-
versity in case a disease comes
along and kills off a certain
variety," he said.
Applications are available
at the public works building,
401 SW 4 Street, or by calling

Two years ago Kathy Mc-
Combs heard a Broward
County School Board public
service announcement say-
ing volunteers were needed
in the literacy program. "I
responded," she says, "and
I was sent to Dave Thomas
Education Center at 180 SW
2 street in Pompano Beach. I
began volunteering there for
two nights each week, driv-
ing from work in Palm Beach
County. I was moved by
these adults who wanted to
improve their lives by earning
their GED. I wanted to help
them qualify for a better job
or higher education."
Since then, her employer
downsized and McCombs
lost her job as broadcasting
operation manager for a group
of television stations in West
Palm Beach. She decided to
try to work on her doctor-
ate and is currently waiting
to be accepted at St. Thomas
University in Miami where
she hopes to earn an Ed.D in
educational leadership. Her
goal is to become an admin-
istrator of a college or school
district.

She now drives from Park-
land two mornings a week to
volunteer at Dave Thomas
where the class teacher, Bon-
nie Harris says, "Kathy is one
of the best volunteers I've
ever had. She has a heart for
helping people. Our students
are all age 16 and up. We
move them along, float around
the room, helping each one
with whatever subject being
worked on. Today we had
26 students. I am grateful for
Kathy's assistance."
McCombs paused to work
with Jeffery Nixon who hopes


to become an apprentice elec-
trician once he's earned his
GED. With a smile, he says,
"Miss Kathy helps me with
my math and soon we will be
working on social studies. I
want my GED because it will
open doors for me."
Once she had helped Jeffery
understand a problem, Mc-
Combs moved over to Linda
Johnson and Kadiann Davis
to see how they were pro-
gressing. Linda explained,
"I'm working on my writing
skills. I want to better my
life. Miss Kathy is helping me


with my pronouns and verbs
where I have been confused.
I hope to work in the medical
field, but I have to pass this
important test first. We need
more like her to help us."
Kadiann is working on her
reading and math skills. "I
want to be a chef," she says.
"I'll need to be able to read
recipes and figure out how
much of all the ingredients I
will need. "


)S
Harris explains that some
of her students are in ABE, or
adult basic education, while
others are studying for their
GED, or General Equivalency
Diploma.
"The ones who do well usu-
ally are the ones with a career
goal," she says, introducing
Raven Ruckle.
Ruckle says, "I'm a 45-
year-old who has raised 10
children. Now, I finally have
time for myself. It's my turn.
I'm attending Pen Foster High
School on line. After I gradu-
ate, I plan to go to college and
earn my doctorate in minis-
try."
McCombs treats each stu-
dent with great respect. Her
voice is very soft, but firm.
"I'm here every Monday and
Wednesday mornings so I
have developed relationships
with these ambitious people.
My reward is seeing their
faces when they have solved
a problem or answered a dif-
ficult question correctly. My
inspiration is their teacher,
Bonnie Harris who seems
to have an endless supply of
patience and faith in each of
her students."
Thank you Kathy McCombs
for your help in this adult
classroom at Dave Thomas
Education Center. To volun-
teer, call 754-321-6750.

Beach businesses banding

together in Deerfield
There are two new ways for Deerfield Beach Cham-
ber of Commerce members to network their businesses:
monthly luncheons and/or tying in with the city's newest
group, the Island Part-
nership. -T--
The first luncheon is
being held Tuesday, Dec. :
15, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
at Casa Maya Grill in the ,DU
Cove Shopping Center.
$15 includes a work-
shop on rebuilding busi-
ness, lunch and a bever-
age. Reservations are
required at 954-427-1050.
All chamber members are invited, but the luncheon
is designed for those who, for business reasons, can-
not attend either the chamber's monthly breakfast or the
monthly after hours meeting.
Out on the "Island," Joe Hilner and Danielle Williams
head up a group of beach business people intent on
promoting Deerfield Beach's award-winning beach as a
great place to stay and play.
About two dozen business owners have joined Is-
land Partners and are participating in special offers and
events designed to bring people to A1A. Adjacent busi-
nesses wishing to participate can do so through Island
Partners.
The Partners will have a page on the chamber website
with a listing of its members and offers.

BSO will be watching the children,

but who will pay the tab?

On Dec. 17, school board officials and Pompano Beach City Commissioners
will hold a discussion regarding who should pay for the nine Broward Sheriff
Office deputies assigned to each of the nine schools in the city.
The cost is nearly $1 million. BSO charged Pompano Beach $145,000 per
deputy.
We think the Broward School Board is obligated to pay the bill.
Here's why.
School children are committing crimes that range from theft and drugs to ho-
micide. Only this week, we read of middle school children rushed to a hospital
in Cooper City for drug overdoses. Two years ago a young girl at Dillard High
School was murdered by another student. A fight broke out this week at Blanche
Ely High School that required quick action by BSO. Schools can be and are at
times dangerous.
School Board members know that we live in an era of serious juvenile crime.
Commissioner Barry Dockswell said in this issue, the school board owns the
buildings and has a responsibility to the students, employees and volunteers.
Of note, when the School Board backed away from picking up the tab for
SROs in Pompano Beach and Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti was on the brink of
pulling deputies out of local schools because of funding, Mayor Lamar Fisher
and the commission agreed to pay the bill. They agreed because children's
safety outweighs dollars.
But it's wrong the have taxpayers of Pompano Beach pay the wages of BSO
for school security.
Here's why.
Taxpayers already pay BSO $36.8 million to secure the safety of the citizens
of this city. In addition, taxpayers fund the county another $31 million- half of
that money is for BSO.
Broward County officials need to explain to the taxpayers of Pompano Beach
how that $31 million works in the budget.
Something is very wrong with the money, and we hope that Pompano Beach
Commissioners will not stop digging until they know how and where every dol-

Scared to date after the divorce?

Check your reasons routinely
Dear Debbie,
I have recently gone through a very difficult divorce and am contemplating
dating. I find myself holding back because I am scared. What should I do?
Scared in Plantation


Dear Scared,
After going through a difficult divorce it is very
normal to be scared. Allow it. This emotion is tied to
your past experience, and you are still obviously at-
tached.
You question and wonder why you did not see the
signs and are still trying to figure it out. Because of this
the thought of dating someone new is scary.
A way to work through this is, whenever you have
those feelings, ask yourself what the unconscious
thoughts are that may be causing them. This will allow
you to be more aware in the present and recognize what
those thoughts and emotions are causing you to do or
not do.
In addition, check in with yourself and see if it is
the time to date, if enough time has enough time passed,
and if you are feeling stable enough.
If the answer is yes, then by all means do so and
recognize that the fear and feeling of being cautious is
normal.
Remember that this is a new experience. Do not
rush in too quickly to fill the emptiness and do not hold
back too much to protect yourself.
These behaviors are ways to avoid feelings of fear
and rejection. For the same reason someone might
distance himself or herself from a relationship to avoid
reliving difficult past experiences.

Other individuals may prematurely throw themselves into the fantasy of a
relationship to avoid feeling alone.
Allow yourself to feel all the emotions that may surface; this will enable
you to enjoy a new experience while remaining connected to yourself. You have
the opportunity to create something new when you feel ready. Make sure to "go
slowly" and listen to your inner voice.

Opinions and Editorials







Frdy eebr1,20 h eia


El Mar
Continued from page 1
on Monday, along with repre-
sentatives of Ocampo & Asso-
ciates, architects and planners.
The architects gave them four
design options.
Dodd, Minnet and Paul
Novak, MPSC chair, dis-
agreed with Mclntee about
the consensus reached at that
meeting.
"We recommended giving
it back to the MPSC to come
back to the dais with propos-
als," Dodd said. "This dais
didn't come up with a prefer-
ence. I support returning it to
their consideration to come up
with a complete plan. It won't
take a great deal of time."
"The consensus was we
wanted to get this right,"
Minnet said. "I want to move
forward with the correct plan
and not have it piecemeal. I
thought we would allow them
to take a few extra months on
this project."
Novak said his board needs
two or three meetings "to
get this more finite." He said
some of his neighbors at the
Sea Ranch Club are horrified
about the plan for making a
walkway down the median.
"You can't make everyone
happy," McIntee responded
Novak said they should
make it so they don't have to
do it two or three more times.
"I don't think we gave
carte blanche to start spend-
ing without an overall plan
recommended by the MPSC,"
Dodd said.
At the Monday workshop,
Raul Ocampo and Ernie Ojito,


project architect, of Ocampo
& Associates presented four
alternatives.
On Tuesday, commission-
ers approved the first option,
which included beautifying
the 20-foot medians with a pe-
destrian walkway, bikeways,
resting stations, pet walks,
lighting and seating.
The area from Palm Avenue
to Pine Avenue, the entire
length of El Mar Drive, is
5,000 linear feet. Ocampo es-
timated that for the funds the
town has on hand they could
complete one-fifth of that or
1,000 feet.
The second choice was
similar to the first with the
same median improvements
plus two adjacent lanes con-
verted into a pedestrian way.
The lanes were of a different
texture to slow traffic. They
could be cordoned off for spe-
cial events and used solely for
pedestrians or parking and be
normal traffic lanes otherwise.
A third option called for
widening sidewalks to 8 feet
and re-doing drainage. The
median was simply land-
scaped with no pedestrian
ways.
The fourth option, "the full
enchilada," involved doing
medians, two adjacent lanes


with texture and widen-
ing sidewalks to eight feet,
Ocampo said.
Costs vary for the choices,
Ocampo said. Costs per
foot would be multiplied by
1,000. The second option
would cost $796 per linear
foot; option three, $1,030 per
linear foot; and option four,
$1,412 per linear foot.
Minnet asked about moving
lighting to the medians. Ojito
estimated the cost at $20,000
to $30,000 per median.
Clottey asked about making
the lighting solar. Ocampo
said solar isn't that reli-
able yet. Batteries only last
for two years, and the town
would need two systems, on-
line and solar.
Commissioner Jim Sil-
verstone asked how long it
would take to complete op-
tion one. Ocampo said seven
months to a year. "One of
the biggest issues is getting a
contractor. A lot out there are
hungry, but they're down to
skeleton crews."
Once a choice is made,
Ocampo said it would take
his firm 60 days to come
back to the building depart-
ment with a plan for review.
Minnet said she is con-
cerned about the safety of


people trying to walk and bike
on El Mar. If walkways are
created in the medians, pedestri-
ans would have to cross streets
to the medians, which aren't
contiguous. "Are we adding
another safety issue?" She sug-
gested instead relocating lights
to the median and having better
sidewalks.
Novak said he wouldn't widen
sidewalks one inch. "People
are still going to walk in the
road. It's not Federal Highway..
There's not a lot of traffic."
Mclntee disagreed. He said if
the median has benches, a water
fountain and shade, people may
think that's attractive.
Ocampo said it would take an
educational program to convince
people to walk in the medians.
"I don't think our goal should
be to spend $1 million as soon


as possible," said MPSC
member Bob Eckblad. "Let's
look at part of the plan and
then have a five-year plan
rather than piecemeal." He
suggested borrowing and
paying for the project over
10 years.
McIntee said the town just
got completely out of debt,
and he doesn't want to go
into debt again.
Ocampo said it was im-
portant they look at all of El
Mar Drive and put design
guidelines and criteria into
effect, even if they could
only spend $1 million now.
Novak suggested the
MPSC come up with a
master plan for all of El
Mar Drive, working with
Ocampo.

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
The grumpiest Scrooge will
get in the holiday mood with a
visit to this festive florist and
holiday shop with an almost
endless inventory of trees,
trims, twinkling lights, Santas,
elves, bows, wreathes, and
gifts for collectors.
Located at 1319 E. Sample
Road for the past 18 years,
owners Debbie Coffin and
Sandy Jackson call their shop
a family affair where Mom,
Val Coffin, and Dad, Pat Cof-
fin lend a hand at busy pre-
holiday times. And Boo, their
beagle rescue dog, welcomes
shoppers with a look and a
lick.
Debbie says, "My sister,
Sandy, was in the Christmas
tree business in Connecticut
and I was a floral designer
here. We decided to merge
and create this holiday shop
and we both love it. I'm still


holiday trees, trims and collectibles
more of a designer and she's
more involved with customer
relations. We're a good fit and
each do our thing."
The Pelican interviewer
was humming along with a
Christmas song and perusing
room after room of sparkle
and dazzle when a long time
customer, Kay Doverspike
stopped in to buy a personal-
ized wreath. She greeted the '
owners with hugs and smiles,
saying, "We've been thru'
so much together we have
become friends over the many
years I've known Debbie. She
has done countless flower
arrangements for our parties.
I'm also a collector of the vil-
lage pieces and Byers' Choice
collectibles every year."
Doverspike headed into an
entire room dedicated to a
variety of Dept. 56 Village
buildings-- all lit up miniature
houses, shops, churches and
featuring the newest addition,
a White Castle hamburger

store.
"Every year they add new
pieces and we stock them
all," Debbie says. "We are a
resource for collectors who
seek retired village buildings.
Many of our clients now own
up to 100 pieces which they
love displaying at holiday
time."
The store's stock of decora-
tions runs the gamut. There
are wreathes ready to hang
and more waiting to be per-
sonalized or even refurbished


with ribbons, ornaments,
lights and mixed foliage.
Artificial trees from small to
9-feet tall are ready to go as
is or be decorated from top to
bottom with separate orna-
ments, figurines, and center-
pieces.
Byers' Choice Collectibles,
made in the U.S.A., are big
sellers here. Then there are
Mark Roberts Fairies, Santas,
ceramics and a fantasy of
Christmas accent pieces.
Christmas is just one of the


holidays celebrated in this flo-
rist shop that goes all out for
every holiday with an appro-
priate theme ."Fresh flowers
play a part in every holiday,"
Sandy asserts. "Some of our
most beautiful flowers are
grown right here in Florida
just two hours away. Many
come from South America.
"We've developed a wide
customer base over the years,"
Debbie adds. "We provide for

we sell roses, fresh flowers,
orchids and other plants. On
Easter, it's spring arrange-

most centerpieces incorporate
a variety of fresh flowers. We
get dressed up and stock mem-

This business offers person-

The sisters go out of their way
to accommodate customers


including special ordering
collectibles. "Catering to cus-
tomers and offering the best

we have managed to grow in
a competitive market," Sandy
explains.
Lisa Howe, owner of Brooks

says, "Debbie always does a
great job. For over 20 years,
she has arranged flowers for
our business and our home.
We recommend her as a florist
for all of the private parties
that take place here."
Susan Gallo shared the same
feelings, saying, "I'm here to
plan a fresh floral centerpiece
for our office holiday party. I
love their selection of orna-
ments and trims. I'm also a
long time collector of Byers'
Choice figures. I've been
dealing with Debbie for about
23 years and have never been
disappointed."
Debbie flashes her easy
smile saying, "We've had
our moments of fame, too.


Bush's Baked Beans did a
Christmas commercial in the

Collectors of

the past, lovers of

the beautiful, the

Judy Abercrom-

bie-Patrick Park-

er team, owners of

Abercrombie Auc-

tions International

put history on the

auction block.

By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Not every $250 investment
in art will mature into a $25
million sale, but could it hap-


pen?
Well, yes.
That's one reason some
people are addicted to the art
of the auction. And for those
people, there's Abercrombie
Auctions International, 4378
North Dixie Highway, Oak-
land Park, where the auction
is on every Wednesday at 6
p.m.
Previews begin at 5 p.m.
Judy Abercrombie, former
Ford model and actress, is
the CEO of Abercrombie's in
South Florida.
She and her husband, Pat-
rick T. Parker, have amassed
warehouses filled with art,
furniture, clocks, statues, jew-
elry, rugs and more.
As to the $250 investment,
Patrick enjoys that tale of
success.
"You don't have to go far
to find high-profile examples


of investment in art," he says.
"David Rockefeller bought
a Mark Rothko in 1966 for
$11,000. It sold at auction last
May for $57.8 million. An-
other collector took a chance
with a new and upcoming art-
ist, Andy Warhol. He bought
Warhol's Lemon Marilyn for
$250, enjoyed it for over 30
years and recently sold it at
auction for $25.7 million."
Parker is very quick to add
that auctions are not simply
for the collector with deep
pockets.
"Auctions are fun for every-
body. We might have some-
thing for $5 or for $50,000,"
he says.
Judy and Patrick have been
collectors of art for many
years.
Patrick, a certified gemolo-
gist, whose previous business
career was spent as a com-

Auctions.


modities broker and invest-
ment advisor, likes the idea of
long-term beauty and invest-
ment.
"I buy art for its energy.
It's the only investment you
can hang on the wall while
it appreciates for you," says
Patrick.
From Rembrandt to Chagall
to Overtown's Purvis Young,
there's plenty to choose from
at Abercrombie's.
Purvis Young, born in 1943,
was raised in Miami. He is
considered in art circles an
urban expressionist painter.
"With Purvis, here's an
artist where you get him or
you don't," says Patrick. "A
lot of people love him or hate
him. I get it. I find him full of
hope, full of life and full of
energy. I find God in it," He
adds. "He's an urban artist,


the Picasso of the ghetto. He's
an artist who paints what he
sees, and he sees the street.
He hasn't changed his life-
style even though he's made a
lot of money. He's childlike in
some ways. He hasn't let his
fame go to his head."
But that's only one artist
who is featured at Abercrom-
bie's.
"I've got a Jane Peterson
for this week's auction, she
normally goes for $10,000 to
$15,000 range. At this auction
she will probably go for about
$5,000. She died in 1965.
Her art is landscapes and still
life," Parker says.
But art is only one facet
of this South Florida auction
house.

class action case brought on
behalf of 5,000 vagrants in
1988 by the American Civil
Liberties Union.
The homeless charged that
Miami police had a policy of
harassing homeless people for
sleeping, eating and perform-
ing life sustaining activities in
public places with the purpose
of driving them out of the city
or rendering them invisible.
The case was appealed,
and a district court ruled that
the city's practice of arrest-
ing homeless individuals
for harmless life-sustaining
activities that they are forced
to perform in public is uncon-
stitutional because the arrests
constituted cruel and unusual
punishment in violation of the
Eighth Amendment, restricted
innocent conduct in violation
of the Fourteenth Amendment,
and burdened the fundamental
right to travel in violation of
the Equal Protection Clause.
The city settled the case for
$1.5 million.

a challenge to fully provide
shelter space, he said. He said
he could investigate whether
there are adequate shelters.
Llerena said he has seen one

hours a day at a beach portal
reading a book. "He's not
committing a crime," he said.

are creating a disturbance, that
can be addressed by law en-
forcement, he said. But in the
vast majority of calls about
suspicious persons, the cases
are unfounded. "They have a
right to be there," he said.
"I don't think we should go
near this," Vice Mayor Jerry
McIntee said. "We can't start
locking up people for sitting
on a bench."
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone said he is getting fewer
calls about the homeless. He
asked if it would be legal


to have certain hours at the
beach or if portals could be
closed off from midnight to
5 a.m.
Commissioner Stuart Dodd
said the town doesn't have the
right to close public access to
the beach.
Trevarthen said she would
have to investigate the matter,
cautioning, "This area has
a lot of landmines, and we
should proceed cautiously."
Mayor Roseann Minnet said
some businesses have signs
posted about no loitering. She
asked if that could be done at
the portals.
Llerena said some business-
es enroll in the BSO trespass
program and authorize BSO
to remove people from the
premises. BSO is already an
agent for the town and doesn't
need such a sign to enforce
the law.
Signs could be a possibility,
Llerena said in an interview
later. "But we have to be
careful. Homelessness is not
a crime. The main thing is to
get them the help they need."

The New Presbyterian Church in Pompano Beach finds home at

high school gym for 700 congregants seeking traditional worship


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Last Sunday morning, the
gymansium at Pompano
Beach High School took on a
new look.
The floors were covered
with plastic tarps. More than
700 folding chairs faced the
stage where a grand piano, an
organ, a massive altar and a
full choir stood ready to begin
Day 77 of the New Presbyte-
rian Church.
Jim Carlson, vice president
of the church's board, was
one of the founders of another
church, Coral Ridge Presbyte-


rian Church.
Ron Boender, owner of But-
terfly World, serves as presi-
dent of this new church. Steve
Kahlke serves as treasurer.
These men with another
700 parishioners from Coral
Ridge have founded the New
Presbyterian Church. Boender
says the move came after the
new pastor at Coral Ridge,
Tullian Tchividjian, changed
much of the Coral Ridge
tradition.
Many congregants objected
to Tchividjian's style of wor-
ship, which includes electric
guitars and drums. Tchividjian
is the grandson of Evangelist


Billy Graham.
"It was a little bit of every-
thing, Boender said. "My
wife and I went through a
church split many years ago.
There were tears and grief.
The church is personal. I
told my wife I would just do
church at home. We're not
leaving church. We're leaving
bricks and mortar."
But leaving a community
was different. Those who left
had become friends, and the
idea of leaving was filled with
grief.
Parishioners tried to change
the leadership through a


petition, and when that failed,
they founded their new
church.
The first meeting took place
at Butterfly World and then
moved to the Elks Club. But
as the numbers to over 600,
they found a larger home at
the gymnasium at Pompano
Beach High School which
seats 2,200.
On this Sunday, it was clear
that the move worked. People
wandered through the rows of
folding chairs. They embraced
old friends.
The call to worship led to
hymns and prayers. The Rev.
Dr. James M. Garretson spoke
of ministry and missionary
work.
"Rejoice!" from Handel's
Messiah, sung by C. J. Balk
and accompanied by Lisa
Wilson on the Harpsichord,
brought silence to the congre-
gation and then applause.
Announcements indicated
the various activities for
members from infancy to
seniors.
On Dec. 20 at 2 p.m., The


New Presbyterian Church
will present Handel's Messiah
featuring the church choir,
soloists and orchestra. The
concert is free and open to the
public.
"We are happy," says Bo-
ender. "People are thrilled.
There is the spirit of fellow-
ship and joy we [once] had."
Back in Fort Lauderdale,
Bill Ashcraft, a ruling elder
of Coral Ridge Presbyterian
wished the new church well.
"A number of people have
left the church. They were
very attached to the traditional
style which was the hallmark
of Dr. James Kennedy," he
said. "They left to preserve
that. There is no doctrinal
difference between the two
churches; it is about the style
of preaching and worship. I
pray, the Session prays and
our pastor prays for the suc-
cess of the new church."
The New Presbyterian
Church offers services at 11
a.m. on Sundays at Pompano
Beach High School gymnasi-
um, 600 NE 13 Ave., Pompa-
no Beach. Call 954-946-4380.

a commission that has been
without a city manager since
June.
Former Pompano Beach
City Commissioner Keith
Chadwell, resigned after two
years at the helm. He left with
a compensatory check for
$145,000, for which he agreed
not to sue the city.
"I'm very anxious to have
Mr. Beach guide this city with
his experience in budget plan-
ning, economic stimulus and
redevelopment," said Mayor
Lamar Fisher.
Asked what his priorities
would be when he takes over,
Beach said they would be
exactly what the Pompano
Beach commissioners have
already discussed with him.
Among those issues, ac-
cording to Beach are the BSO
contract and performance
issues at city hall relating to
staff.

Impasse
Continued from page 1
The city has notified the
Public Employee Relations
Commission of its failure to
successfully bargain with Lo-
cal # 1010, the non-uniformed
employees, and meets Fri-
day with the union to decide
whether to proceed to media-
tion, appoint a special magis-
trate or go to the city commis-
sion for a solution.
Negotiators for the Fire-
fighters Union, Local 1673,
and the city will meet with a
special magistrate Wednes-
day, Dec. 16, 9 a.m. in the
city commission chambers.
At issue is the city's offer of
a 1 percent cost of living
increase in the second year of
the contract, a 3 percent merit
pay increase in the second
year and a new longevity
plan which is being offered to
employees city wide.
Also to be decided for the
firefighters, the length of time
the city has to buy out their
compensatory time. The city
wants three years; the union
would like a shorter time
frame.
Originally, the city offered
only a one year contract, no
COLAs, a freeze in merit and
longevity pay and no longev-
ity pay for new employees.
The new longevity plan
gives employees bonuses of
$1,200 after 10 years, $1,800
at 15 years, $2,400 at 20 years
and $3,000 after 25 years.
Sean Crofutt, President of Lo-
cal 1673, did not have actual
figures, but said the numbers
under the new plan mean
much less for the employees.
Mark Floyd, represent-
ing the fire union, has said
that the city is using pres-
ent economic conditions to
change long existing benefits
that were in place when the
firefighters were hired. The
firefighters say senior mem-
bets of the department are
willing to forgo cost of living
increases for the next two
years if the younger firefight-
ers can receive 5 percent merit
pay.
The general employees say
impasse was reached when
the city would not grant an
increase in longevity, offer
their requested 5 percent merit
increase and 4 percent annual
COLA.
Assistant City Manager Ma-
con Sammons, the city's lead
negotiator, has argued that "A
new set of economic realities
exist that forces the city to
think not just about the next
two years, but also on what it
can afford for the long-term."

Along with determining the

Also on the agenda,
discussion of the PEMs, a

help with sand retention.
Commissioners must decide
whether to retain the system
and pay a lease fee, or have
it removed. Experts say the
PEMs have accreted some

Annual Toy
and Train
show and sale
This holiday season offers
a good reason to put a toy
train under the tree and sup-
port a worthwhile project.
The Derrick Wagner Me-
morial Foundation will host
a toy and train show Dec. 12
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the
Florida National Guard Ar-
mory, 3193 Gun Club Road,
West Palm Beach.
Derrick Wagner, 17, a
student at Palm Beach Com-
munity College, was killed on
July 31, 1990, after leaving
his computer lab.
Wagner was riding a bi-
cycle on his way home, using
the road in the bicycle path.
He was hit by a driver who
left the scene. Forty-three
months later, the driver was
turned in by another person.
Derrick's father, Will,
explained that at that time
the statute of limitations had
expired because at that time a
hit and run was a third-degree
felony.
Will added that after the
death of his son, Congressman
Robert Wexler, then a state
senator, offered to support a
bill that w6iild'inike a hir and
run a felony murder. The bill i
was made into law in 1997.
Proceeds from the train ._
sale will provide scholarships
for students to attend Palm
Beach Community College.
For more information
about the train and toy sale or
the memorial fund, call 561-
373-9603.

Money questions hover over BSO-Pompano
negotiations, city hires Whitelock to negotiate


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach
Commissioners hope to get
more information that may
help them determine whether
to negotiate a new contract
with the Broward Sheriff's
Office, or BSO, or establish a
city-wide police department.
Charles Whitelock, former
general counsel for BSO
from 1992 to 1998, has since
been hired to negotiate a new
contract on the city's behalf.
Keith Chadwell, former city
manager, had hired Willdan
Homeland Solutions to
complete a feasibility study
to determine whether the city


should move toward its own
police department. The study,
completed last June, favored
a city-wide police force and
termination of BSO.
At that time, Commissioner
Barry Dockswell at that
time requested a copy of the
contract and found an option
allowing the city to extend the
current contract for two years.
This would offer a transition
period from BSO to a city-
wide department, preventing
the city from an impasse
situation.
Presently BSO is under that
contract.
Ten years ago, Pompano
Beach disbanded its own city
police force and contracted

with Broward Sheriff's
Office, or BSO, for police
protection.
Last year the contract with
BSO neared the end of its
second 5-year agreement,
and commissioners are facing
an eight percent increase in
police costs, estimated last
year at $36.8 million.
In addition to the increase,
Pompano Beach also faces
paying for nine School
Resource Officers, or SROs,
at $145,000 each, a cost that
both Sheriff Al Lamberti
and the city believe should
be covered by the Broward
County School Board.
Two Broward County
School Board Commissioners,
Dr. Bob Parks and Ben
Williams will be on hand on
Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. at a special
meeting to address the issue
of who should pay for local
school security.
Mayor Lamar Fisher is
adamant that local students
be protected during school
hours. He noted that a recent
Pompano Beach incident at
Ely High School could have
been much more serious if
BSO had not been on campus.
"Even the three or four-

have made a big difference,"
Fisher said. "The question is:
Who should pay for them?"
Dockswell agrees that the
schools need SROs.


"The main item on the
agenda is the school resource
deputy," says Dockswell.
"I am very firm in my
position that the school board
owns the school buildings,
has responsibility for its
employees in the building and

custodial responsibility for the
students in the schools. For
the school board to fail to pay
the cost of securing
the buildings is
unconscionable."
Dockswell adds, "When
the word was out that the
Sheriff was pulling SROs out
of the schools, parents called
commissioners. Mayor Fisher
agreed to pay for all nine,
from a combination of the law
enforcement trust fund and


by using deputies who were
serving on the streets."
S"It's the school board's job
and whatever is needed it's
the school board's job to get
it," Dockswell said.
But SRO funds are not the
only funds being questioned
by Pompano Beach.
Taxpayers, in addition to
the nearly $37 million for the
annual BSO contract, also
pay $31 million to Broward
County. Half of that amount


funds BSO.
Officials now want an
accounting for those funds.
While commissioners
are not party to day-to-day
negotiations with BSO,
Dockswell is pleased that
Whitelock represents the
taxpayers' interest.
"He seems be putting
knowledge and teeth into
our side of the negotiations,"
Dockswell says.

BEAUTIFUL SMILE

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

DO MEN BRUSH AS OFTEN AS WOMEN?


When the American Dental Association
recently conducted a national survey,
they found that men and women differ
when it comes to taking care of their
teeth and gums. According to the
nationally representative survey of
1,000 Americans ages 18 and older, 86
percent of women brush their teeth
twice or more a day while only 66
percent of men make the same effort to
keep their teeth clean. As far as flossing
is concerned, there is room for improve-
ment for both genders. Slightly less than
half of those surveyed (49%) indicated
that they floss their teeth once a day or
more. One out of three people surveyed
think that bleeding gums after brushing
their teeth is normal-but it is not.
Your teeth can last a lifetime if you

practice basic dental care, which
involves brushing and flossing
regularly, eating a mouth-healthy diet,
and visiting us at the practice of Dr.
HUTCHISON for regular checkups
and cleaning. Keeping teeth and gums
healthy will contribute to overall health
and enjoyment of life. Teaching you
how to prevent dental disease and
preserving your natural teeth for a
lifetime are our primary goals. Please
call us to schedule an appointment. We
are providers of Botox and Juvederm.
P.S. According to the survey mentioned
above, women replace toothbrushes
every three to four months on average
while men retain theirs an average of
five months.

Auction


Continued from page 10
Oriental rugs, rare jewelry,
china, statues, furniture and
more end up on the auction
block every week.
An hour before the
Wednesday night auction
begins, Abercrombie
employees make decisions
about what will be on
preview. Refreshments are
laid out for the evening's
bidders. Comfortable chairs
fan out across the room facing
the center stage.
Parker says the evening is
just as much entertainment as
it is a business. Some people
stop in just to see the show,
but one thing is for sure, he
adds, the winner of an item
has made a great deal on
price.
Items come to
Abercrombie's through estate
sales and consignments. All
items begin with a minimum
bid
Patrick's study of art led


him to become a collector for
35 years.
And beyond the art on
canvas, he see the beauty of
art everywhere.
He points out two ornate
Veritage lamps with a
matching clock from the
1800s, a German vase from
the same era.
Patrick moves to a jewelry
case where a necklace has
been crafted with 28-carat
sapphires and 12.5 carats of
diamonds.
"Auctions are places to for
bargains and beauty," says
Patrick. "People don't want to
pay retail. They are looking
for bargains and see things
they have never seen before,
things that attract the buyer
with aesthetic or financial
appeal."
Judy joins Patrick just
before the bidding begins and
explains another benefit of
Abercrombie's.
"We are very involved in
the community," she says.
"I know non-profits are

Ask Senior
Helpers

Question: Can you tell me
more about In-Home care for
seniors?
David S., Pompano Beach

In-home care came about
in this country through and
evolution of ideas.
In the first century of our
country's history there were
no such things as nursing
homes or assisted living.
Society was mostly rural
and people lived in their own
homes. Families cared for


their loved ones at home till
death took them.
In the latter part of the
1800's because of an
increasingly urban society,
many families were often
unable to care for loved ones
because of lack of space or
because all family members
including children were
employed six days a week for
12 hours a day.
During this period many
people needing care were
housed in county poor
houses or in facilities for the
mentally ill. Conditions were
deplorable.
In the early 1900's home

visiting nurses started
reversing this trend of
institutionalizing and allowed
many care recipients to
remain in their homes.
Nursing homes or so-called
rest homes were also being
built with public donations
or government funds. With
the advent of Social Security
in 1936, a nursing home per
diem stipend was included
in the Social Security
retirement income. This
government subsidy spurred
the construction of nursing
homes all across the country.
By the end of the 1950s,
it was apparent that Social
Security beneficiaries were
living longer and that the
nursing home subsidy could
eventually bankrupt Social


Security.
But in order to protect the
thousands and thousands
of existing nursing homes,
Congress had to find a way to
provide a subsidy but remove
it as an entitlement under
Social Security.
In 1965 Medicare and
Medicaid were created
through an amendment
to the Social Security
Act. Under Medicare,
nursing homes were only
reimbursed on behalf of
Social Security beneficiaries
for short-term rehabilitation.
Under Medicaid, nursing
homes were reimbursed
for impoverished disabled
Americans and impoverished
aged Americans over the age


of 65.
It has never been the
intent of Congress to pay
for nursing home care for
all Americans. The nursing
home entitlement for all aged
Americans was now gone.
Over the last 40 years,
there has been a gradual
change away from the use
of nursing homes for long-
term care towards the use of
home care and community
living arrangements that also
provide in-house care.

in Oakland Park for take out or to enjoy

Lucarella's
4165 N. Dixie Hwy
Oakland Park, FL

Located on Dixie Highway
since 1964, Lucarella's is
a well known institution in
Oakland Park. Under new
management, this purveyor
of gourmet Italian foods
still delivers outstanding
pizzas, sandwiches, hot meal
specialties and baked goods.
"We are an Italian market, a
deli and a bakery. Of course,
we also make great pizzas!"
says new owner George
Diaz. Having grown up in
the family pizzeria, this New
York native brings his many
years of experience to the
venerable eatery.
The white tomato basil
pizza is prepared with fresh
tomatoes, ricotta, mozzarella,
basil, garlic and oiiyv- oil,;-
For the carnivores, the Meat
Lover overflows with ham,
pepperoni, sausage and
chicken. The Eggplant Special
is loaded with fried eggplant,
artichokes and roasted
peppers-atrue delight
for vegetarians and-non-
vegetarians alike.
"We offer many specialty
pizzas and will gladly make
any kind you like" asserts
Diaz, "but we also do a bit of
everything, such as calzones,
homemade soups, traditional
dishes and much more..."
Indeed, daily chef's specials
include favorites such as
chicken Parmiginia and
Marsala, stuffed pasta shells,
meat or spinach lasagna,
baked ziti and a host of other
Italian classics.
An impressive array of
hot subs such as the steak
& cheese and meatball
Parmigiana are menu
stalwarts that should not be
missed.
Of note, "our beef and
chicken empanadas sell like
crazy. We make at least 50
every morning and they are
gone by lunchtime" says Diaz
who seems to be having a
tough time keeping up with
the demand for these tasty $2
snacks.
"We also bake our bread
daily so that we can offer the
finest hard-crust Italian breads
to our customers" states Diaz
as he points out a seemingly
endless list of available
sandwich options. Using only
Boar's Head cold cuts, from
roast turkey to sopressata


Made fresh daily, a delectable selection of salads and prepared dishes are always ready to eat.


to honey glazed ham, all
sandwiches are made fresh to
order.
Lucarella's also provides
a delicious selection of
fresh salads. The Chef salad
comes with ham, cheese and
turkey. The chicken, tuna
and antipasto salads are also
quite popular. "Our Caprese
salad with fresh mozzarella,
tomatoes, basil and olive oil is
truly outstanding" says Diaz.
Another reason to visit
this quaint trattoria is for
the baked goods cookies,
breads, cakes and delicious
pastries abound. Cannoli,
tiramisu, 6clairs, raspberry
cheesecake and key lime
tarts are just a few of the
noteworthy desserts on hand.
"We make truly decadent
brownies. I believe they are
probably among the best in
South Florida. People just
love them!" exclaims Diaz.
Lucarella's has a smallish
dining area that is convenient
for eating on site. With ample
free parking, it is tempting
to enjoy one's goodies
immediately rather than
wait to get home. Of course,
delivery is also available.
For parties or functions,
the catering service will
ensure great food for all.
An enormous selection
of appetizers, platters and
desserts can be prepared with
a minimum of 24 hrs notice.
For a complete list of dishes,

lucarellas.com.
Daily special meal deals


start at $5.99. This includes
a vegetable, a pasta, an
entrde and a garlic roll.
Pizzas begin at $11.99 for
a 16" pie. Specialty and hot
subs, hoagies, grinders and a
plethora of sandwiches start at
$5.99.
To pick up some great


Italian fare for friends and
family or to simply enjoy a
tasty meal on site, Lucarella's
is the ideal place for lunch or
dinner. Open from 9 am to
7 pm daily (open at noon on
Sundays, this is one iconic
spot that should be visited
frequently. Buon appetite!
