Experimental

beach erosion

system is

a washout
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Concerned over the cost and uncer-
tain of the benefits, Hillsboro Beach
commissioners voted Tuesday to
cancel the PEM contract.
At some locations along the shore,
erosion is threatening buildings and
has washed away stairs to the beach
and boardwalks.
The town's oceanographic consultant
has declared the situation critical.

Saturday a special day for retiring

Deerfield Beach parks director


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Parks and Recreation Director
Vince Kendrick retired this week and
city commissioners spent some time
Tuesday discussing ways to honor his
10 years of service in Deerfield Beach.
Vice Mayor Sylvia Poitier wanted
Dec. 19 to be declared "Vince Ken-
drick Day" in perpetuity suggesting


a "fun day of events" to mark the
occasion. Commissioner Bill Ganz,
fearful of that becoming a costly day,
suggested that the city's championship
trophies bear Kendrick's name.
When the commission hesitated to
make Poitier's request official, she
responded that she would see to it that
Dec. 19 "is Vince Kendrick Day" as

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea


seeks


applications for Hillsboro Inlet Board


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
residents interested in serving
on the board of the Hillsboro
Inlet District have until Thurs-
day, Jan. 7, 2010 to submit
their applications to town hall.
Commissioners agreed to
Seek candidates for the posi-
tion at their Dec. 7 meeting.
The vote was 3 to 2, Mayor
Roseann Minnet and Commis-
sioner Stuart Dodd dissenting.


Dodd is the town's current
representative on the board.
He is an experienced yachts-
man and owner of a marine
service and repair company.
He was named to the position
shortly before his election to
the commission two years
ago, replacing former LBTS
Mayor Oliver Parker on the
inlet board.
The Hillsboro Inlet District
assesses taxes to maintain
the Hillsboro Inlet for boat-
ing purposes. The board is

composed of representatives
of Broward County and seven
municipalities, including
LBTS.
Commissioner Birute Clot-
tey placed the item regarding
the inlet representative on
the agenda. She said the only
requirement is being a resident
of the town for six months.
Applicants also must be quali-
fied electors. There is no pay,
but there is free health insur-
ance.
Dodd said this was the first
he had heard Clottey wasn't
happy with the current repre-
sentation. He asked if she had
contacted the board chairman
to see how he was doing in the
position.
Clottey said in the past the
commission has appointed
people to the board for one
year. She said she has not
contacted the board chair.
"This has nothing to do with
whether or not you're doing
a good job," she responded.
"We appoint a representa-
tive for one year, and this is
the only position where we
haven't made an appointment.
We have all moved on to other
jobs," she said, referring to
commissioners serving on
various committees.

Making a

Difference










Phyllis J. Neuberger
wants your suggestions about
people you know who are
making a difference.
Call 954-783-8700 to
recommend a candidate for
this column.

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF

"It's a vote of confidence!
It's a door opening to career
advancement! It's the best
holiday present I'll get!" were
just some of the scholarship
recipients' reactions on this
Dec. 4. Their bosses and
family members were in the
auditorium audience to see
each of the winners step up to
accept their scholarships and
acknowledge the support and
encouragement offered by the
residents of John Knox Vil-
lage, or JKV.
Betsy Bousfield, chairper-
son of the Village Resident
Scholarship Committee
welcomed friends, family, and
bosses and then wished the
18 employees success as they
embark on their new educa-
tional adventures. Following a
second welcome from ex-
ecutive director of JKV, Bob
Scharmann, the presentation
was turned over to Barbara
Stewart, human resources
director.
She opened the presenta-
tions saying, "Counting today,
the residents of JKV have
given 138 scholarships to de-
serving employees who have


The John Knox Village Scholarship Award Winners pictured bottom row, left to right, Pamela Smith,

Smith, Diane Dawson, Jeanette Childs, Chereline Gracieux, Winifred Holder, Elanne Jean, Jill Land-
graf and Olson Saint Louis.


eagerly enhanced their career
opportunities with additional
education. This group today
is the largest scholarship class
we have ever had."
The scholarship commit-
tee was launched in 1995 and
since that time, over $225,000
has been donated by residents
and estate bequests to higher
education for grateful employ-
ees. To qualify, an employee
must have worked in the vil-
lage for one year and over 500
hours, be a high school gradu-
ate or have a G.E.D., submit
an essay explaining goals and
educational plans and have
two letters of recommendation
from non-family members.
Once these requirements
have been met, the candidate
is interviewed by a committee
and finally approved by the
executive board of the Resi-
dents' Employee Scholarship
Fund. A scholarship can be
worth up to a total of $12,000.
Maximum given at one time
is $1,500. If the employee
completes the program and
passes, and there is still money
available up to $12,000 and if
that person is still employed,


he or she can request a por-
tion for additional study.
Recent high school graduates
who have met the require-
ments and go on to higher
education need not remain
village employees. If a C or
better grade is maintained,
they can earn the full ben-
efit of $12,000 at the rate of
$1,500 per term.
Before the awards were
handed out, Sheila Seymour,
a past scholarship recipient,
had a few inspiring com-
ments for the new group.
She said, "Seven years ago,
I stood here as you are doing
to receive a scholarship. That
award from the residents of
JKV opened the door to my
educational dreams. With-
out that financial support, I
would not have been able to
become an RN, which I can
say with pride, I now am."
There was a round of ap-
plause and then it was time
for the awards to be present-
ed. When the cheering sub-
sided for the 18 employees
honored, each met her or his
volunteer mentor who will
offer guidance when needed.

scholarship winner Josette Altidor. [Photos courtesy of
John Knox Village]


Many of those receiving
awards have raised families
and for the first time were
able to begin to fulfill their
own dreams.
Josette Altidor is a CNA
who hopes to become an RN.
Jeanette Childs is a social
service assistant who wants to
become a resident advocate.
Anne Content, former teacher
in Haiti, is now a CNA who
hopes to earn her LPN and
then her RN.
Cherie Davis is an LPN
who wants to become an RN
Anesthetist. Diane Dawson
has been a CNA at the village


for 13 years and now aspires
to become an RN. Chereline
Gracieux is a CNA who has
been doing patient care for
12 years and is now ready to
earn an RN. She hopes to
eventually open a clinic in
Haiti. Celia Hodges hopes to
become an RN and eventually
a teacher. Winifred Holder,
Charlene Johnson, and Jill
Landgraff all intend to earn
their RN degree. Elanne Jean
has raised four children and
says it's now her turn to earn a

Holiday greetings from Pompano

Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher

Dear Friends,

As we approach the end of the year, I am always
amazed at how quickly time flies. This has been a
busy year for everyone. The holidays are upon us,
and with it comes reflection. During hard economic
Times, reflection can be difficult as we tend to focus
on the negative. I would like to take a moment to
focus on our blessings.
Like many of you, I am thankful above all for my
family, faith, health and friends. I am also over-
FISHER whelmed with thanks because I am living my dream
every day, to be able to serve as Mayor of the City of
Pompano Beach. Before the end of the year, it is my hope that citizens, busi-
ness owners and visitors alike take a moment to reflect on their blessings. It is
my honor to wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday and a prosperous New
Year.

Lamar Fisher
Mayor or Pompano Beach


Pompano Beach Chamber hosts

top notch holiday boat parade
There were no duds in the 2009 Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade.
The lighted vessels sidled up to the judges's station at Sands Harbor Hotel
where captains turned their yachts, fishing boats and recreational boats on a
dime to show off the sparkle of the season. [See final winners at the right]
Old Mooncusser captained by Jack Holland shot its cannons along the
watery path, music rang throughout the Intracoastal Waterway, and the
crowds along the way cheered them on.
Congratulations to the winners and to all who enjoyed and participated
in this year's parade. Special congratulations to the boat parade committee
members.
Boaters in Pompano Beach can take great pride in the historical signifi-
cance of this parade, certainly one of the oldest and probably the oldest in
this nation.
The boat parade exemplifies the huge boating industry, the recreational
industry that draws tourists to our area, and we encourage every boater
around to start planning to be a part of next year's parade.
Sponsored by the Pompano Beach Chamber, the parade is free to a ves-
sels.

Dear Debbie,
I have been trying to lose weight but keep breaking my diet. When I break it,


I tend to completely overdo it and eat until I feel sick.
What can I do to break this habit?

Dear Dieter,
While it is great that you are trying to lose weight, it
is important to recognize that diets don't work. What
happens is that when you break a diet, which is inevi-
table, you will start to feel bad about yourself which
causes you to want to eat more.
Diets are an external process; it is important to start
developing an internal process since you are craving
something "bad" for a reason. Start noticing what state
you are in when you eat something "bad."
Most likely you are not feeling very good about your-
self, and you want to pig out to avoid your feelings. If
this is the case, stop resisting, allow those feelings and
also allow the thoughts of pigging out.
Permit your feelings by taking at least ten minutes
somewhere private to fully express your feelings
through sound and movement. Even if you are unsure
of what the emotion is, keep expressing.
Then for at least five minutes sit in silence and notice
what is happening internally. If you still feel the crav-
ing, choose one thing that you really want to eat, choco-
late, ice cream, cake and decide to buy one portion of it.
Then consciously, eat it with great delight, slowly,
knowing that you are doing it because you choose to

not to punish yourself. This will be a completely different experience because
you will not be overdoing it, punishing yourself or drowning your feelings in
food. You will simply be allowing your craving to be satisfied and enjoyed.
This will take away the struggle and the beat up that happens after and will
lessen your cravings. Food can sometimes be used as a comfort; it doesn't need
to be the enemy. Just allow yourself to completely enjoy the exploration of feel-
ings and food with total awareness and you will be able to break this habit.

Perkins,

Padden take

top jobs at

LBTS fire

department
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
The Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment in Lauderdale-By-The-
Sea re-elected Robert Perkins
as chief at its annual election
Monday.
Perkins defeated Jerry Mc-
Intee, deputy chief, in secret
balloting.
Voters included the 30
volunteer firemen who live in
the town and those volunteers
who live within three miles of
the station.
Volunteers outside these pa-
rameters were excluded from
the vote.
McIhtee threw his name in
the race the last day nomi-
nations had to be turned in,
Perkins said.
"He blindsided us all and
disappointed all of us" with
that move, Perkins said. For
three months McIntee had
been saying he was stepping
down from being a VFD of-
ficer. He was deputy chief.
It is against VFD bylaws to
be both fire chief and a town
commissioner. Mclntee is vice
mayor of LBTS.
Perkins, 55, a resident of
LBTS for 30 years, has been
with the VFD for nearly eight
years.
The fire chief earns $24,000

unteer Fire Department this week. Joe Padden, right, was elected deputy chief.

annually. Perkins said he took
a salary of only $12,000 last
year but was paid for the 700
calls he went on. As a result,
his salary totaled $24,000.
Besides fire calls, the volun-
teers have been going along
on most medical calls.
Perkins doesn't plan to con-
tinue going out on calls. The
chief's job is administrative,
and he now plans to stay in
the office. The department has
an annual budget of $874,000,
up four percent from last year.
Perkins visited every condo
last year, along with the fire
marshal, to become familiar
with all the properties.
Joe Padden, 56, a VFD
member since 1991, was
elected deputy chief, replac-
ing McIntee. Mclntee had
to turn in the deputy chief's
2009 red Ford Explorer, his
badge and radio.


Padden's 22-year-old son
Kevin was elected battalion
chief. Joe Padden described
Kevin as "22 going on 40.
He's a serious kid, who was
certified as a firefighter 1 at
age 17, became an emergen-
cy medical technician after
graduating from high school
at 18 and was the leader of
his class at.the Broward Fire
Academy at 19.
Many VFD members are
rookies, who come to the
department to keep up their
certification and training
until they can find full-time
employment. The depart-
ment has lost 14 members in
the past six months to area
fire departments. Six went
to Deerfield Beach, five to
Miami and two to Pompano
Beach.

Dimitrios Lintzeris, DO, opens Lintzeris Medical Center

in Pompano Beach with in-house laboratory


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
Dr. Dimitrios Lintzeris
opened his family medical
practice in Pompano Beach
just one year ago at 1800 N.
Federal Hwy. in suite 207. A
doctor of Osteopathic medi-
cine, he has an in-house labo-
ratory which he says helps
him to diagnose many prob-
lems quickly and therefore to
begin treatment quickly.
He explains, "We do limited
blood work testing right here
including tests for cholesterol,
liver and kidney function,
hemoglobin A-1-C for dia-
betes, and INR, or coumidin
levels. In addition, we do
rapid influenza testing which
can distinguish if a patient
has the flu and what type it is
including H1N1. We also do
EKGs, event monitors, testing
for strep throat, spirometry, or
breathing tests, and ABI, or
ankle brachial index which is
a test for arterial blockage in
the feet and legs."
A young and enthusiastic,
doctor, Lintzeris is a graduate


of the University of Miami,
a 2004 graduate of Nova
Southeastern College of Os-
teopathic Medicine followed
by an internship and resi-
dency at Palmetto General
Hospital.
He is affiliated with Impe-
rial Point Hospital. "My spe-
cialty is family practice," he
explains, "which equates to
diagnosing and treatment of
chronic medical conditions
and acute problems. I take
care of families starting with
children over 10, for regular
medical check ups and pre-
ventative care. With the help
of my extensive on-site lab, I
can quickly diagnose, moni-
tor and treat many chronic
and acute problems."
One of his patients, Doro-
thy Powell, is being treated
with a drug which requires
close monitoring.
She says, "He's diligent
in keeping track of me. He
is one of the kindest doctors
I've ever met and makes
me feel like I am his only
patient. He's easy to reach.
I actually phoned him once

Erosion
Continued from page 1

Vice Mayor Dan Dodge
said he didn't believe the
experimental erosion-control
system, Pressured Equaliza-
tion Modules, works. "We
were wise to give it a try. It's
time to move forward."


Dodge said the system and
the monitoring required to
measure results has cost the
town one million dollars. He
projected future costs could
be $300,000 annually. "I pro-
pose stopping it immediately,"
he said.
Another factor in the town's
decision was the impact of
the PEMs on the $6 million


upcoming beach nourishment
project.
The town will place sand on
one mile of the north beach to
combat serious erosion there.
The project is expected to
begin early next year. Permits
are pending with state agen-
cies.
The PEMs, 6-foot perme-
able tubes that retain sand as
it comes ashore, were in-
stalled two years ago. In sites
along the North Atlantic, they
reportedly show, over time,
accumulations of sand that
had previously not occurred.
When Mayor Carmen
McGarry asked consultant
John Studt if the PEMs af-
fected the beach nourishment
project permit, Studt replied
that the system creates "odd
questions .. there has to be
a clear indication of how you
are going to proceed with
the PEMs. The permit won't
be issued until you are clear.
The simplest approach is to


remove them."
Dr. Ken Christensen,
president of EcoShore Inter-
national, the company testing
the product in the U.S. said
Wednesday, "I am very sur-
prised they are backing out."
He pointed to an indepen-
dent study that showed 25,000
cubic yards of additional
sand in the test area when the
historic trend has been the op-
posite. In previous years, the
average loss was three feet per
year whereas in surveys taken
this summer the sand loss was
fractional. "It makes sense to
leave the PEMs in place," he
said.
Commissioner Tom Pulari
urged the commission re-
tain the PEMs until Spring.
The actual cost he said is
$739,000, most of that for
monitoring the shoreline.
"It's premature to cancel," he
said. "In the Spring, it will be
obvious whether it is working


or not."
Commissioner Celinda
Sawtelle expressed her doubts
about pulling the system out
because of the conflicting
data.
The $6 million beach nour-
ishment project, plus the cost
of rebuilding the water plant,
means purse strings are tight.
During the discussion, Dr.
Christensen, speaking on a
conference call, offered to
reduce the annual lease from
$150,000 to $40,000 if the
town kept the system in place.
But residents living near the
test area on the north end of
the beach said the modules are
broken by the beach raker and
show no evidence that they
work. Eager for the beach
project to go forward, they
urged the town to have them
removed. Resident Jennifer
Sheehan said, "They (Eco-
Shore) should be paying us
for the experiment."

Dodd pointed out that her
solution in replacing him
would cost the town $5,300,
since he receives health insur-
ance as a Hillsboro Inlet board
member and would now be
eligible to receive insurance
from the town.
Clottey said most of those
who have held the position on
the inlet board have not been
members of the commission
dais.
Dodd said he would nomi-
nate Clottey to replace him, so
it wouldn't cost the town any
more. He noted her experi-
ence in marketing and budget
analysis.
"It's a very interesting proj-
ect. I've enjoyed serving for
the last two years," he said.
It does require giving up 13
evenings per year "for abso-
lutely no financial gain," he
said, adding that he has served
"gladly and willingly."
Clottey countered that she
goes to five to six meetings
a month. Vice Mayor Jerry
McIntee said he goes to 13
meetings a month plus fire
calls.
Clottey said she would do it,
but Parker had expressed an
interest to her in being named
to the board.
Parker served on the board
for five years prior to Dodd.
In a telephone interview this
week, Parker said he ran into
Clottey in a restaurant and
mentioned his interest in the
board. He has since changed
his mind.
"I was thinking of applying
for it but probably won't be.
We will probably be moving


out of town, and it wouldn't
be fair to apply and move,"
Parker said.
Parker said his wife's sister
lives in Lighthouse Point, and
they would like to move there.
Dodd suggested either Clot-
tey take his place or that he
serve until the next election.
Minnet said members of the
community have served on
the board previously. She said
the commission should wait
until after the March election
to make an appointment. "We
look at all the committees
in March. Why do this now
when it's already December?"
Commissioner Jim Silver-
stone said when Dodd was
first appointed to the inlet
board, he provided feedback
on the board's activities to the
commission. "That seems to
have stopped."
Clottey moved to give
residents until Jan. 7 to send
their letters of interest in the
position.
Silverstone questioned
whether a new person would
have to be selected in March.
Town Attorney Susan Trevar-
then said there is nothing in
the code of procedures on the
matter.
At a commission meeting
Dec. 8, resident Vito Chiarello
said he didn't understand why
Dodd was being replaced and
asked if anyone could explain
it.
"Is it something he said?
Did he commit an infraction
of the rules? Was there an eth-
ics violation for his recall?"
He said to Dodd, "Maybe it
is to publicly embarrass you?
Maybe to intimidate you?"
Chiarello said when the
commission puts the position


out there for citizens to claim
it, "You will have, no doubt,
hundreds if not thousands of
people who would love to get
free health insurance. Heck,
maybe I will put my name in
for it, too. I say leave it be, if
it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Florida Power and Light's

Green Energy Plan for Florida


By Norbert Izworski
PELICAN WRITER
According to their ten year
operating plan, Florida Power
and Light, or FP&L, appears
to be focusing on solar energy
to create renewable energy.
Solar energy in Florida has
eighty-five percent of the
maximum photovoltaic re-
source of any location in the
country. With the anticipated
development of more efficient
and lower cost photovoltaic
panels, it makes Florida a
prime location for producing
solar energy.
Currently FPL generates
about twenty-three thousand
megawatts of power. Half of
this is produced using natural
gas, and about a quarter is
produced by nuclear power
plants. Ten percent is created

with coal and fossil fuels such
as kerosene. FPL is planning
to decommission the most
inefficient coal and fossil fuel
plants, and replace them with
much cleaner natural gas and
nuclear power.
About one percent of FPL's
Florida energy comes from
green energy. Much of it
is from biomass resources
such as solid waste, captured
landfill gas, and paper and
sugarcane waste. Recently,
FPL brought online the largest
solar-voltaic power facility
in the country. Located in
DeSoto County, the banks of
solar panels convert sunlight
directly into electricity to pro-
duce twenty-five megawatts
of energy. However, this is

"We don't mind," Perkins
said. And when they leave
the VFD, "they are qualified,
trained firefighters. We train
hard, twice, sometimes three
times a week with a senior
member in charge."
McIntee is one of the train-
ers. "He's very good at teach-

said. "I wish he wasn't such a

word they would be return-
ing to town and replacing the
Broward Sheriff's Office Fire
Rescue department, they had
nine months to build up the
department. The VFD re-
turned Oct. 1, 2008.
"There were only seven of
66 members left," Perkins
said.
The department is now
equipped with five fire trucks,
including their most recent
purchase, a 102-foot tower
ladder truck, paid for with
$150,000 donated by support-
ers. They also have two ATVs,
two jet skis for the beach pa-


trol and a fire boat, previously
used by the LBTS police.
Besides his work as fire
chief, Perkins runs a beach
service at LaCosta Beach
Club, a timeshare in Pompano
Beach. The beach service in-
cludes parasailing, kiteboard-
ing and rental of umbrellas
and cabanas.
He also owns JC Sports-
wear. JC stands for Jesus
Christ. He said he buys the
clothing and gives it away
to the poor and hungry. The
clothing has a Christian sym-
bol of a fish wearing sunglass-
es and a smile.
Perkins is also a wallpaper
hanger, a disc jockey and a
private investigator.
He has volunteered as disc
jockey for many town events.
In an interview Tuesday,
Perkins said he had already
had a lot of positive feedback
from the community and town
commissioners about the elec-
tion results. Reports he got
were that "people are dancing
in the streets," he said.
Leaders of Unite Our Town,
a political group working
to replace Mclntee and Jim


Silverstone on the town com-
mission, were happy with the
VFD election results.
Chuck Clark, a Unite Our
Town board member, said,
"I'm pleased. I think the
VFD is headed in the right
direction. They don't need a
commissioner in a leadership
position."
A former town commis-
sioner, Clark added, "I've
always been of the opinion


it's a conflict of interest to be
on the commission and be part
of the VFD leadership. Issues
involving the VFD come up
all the time. I know the rule
that if they don't financially
benefit, they can vote. Still I
think it's a conflict, and they
should recuse themselves. I
wish everybody well and want
them to continue to do a good
job," Clark said.
"They had a vote. They


made their choice for leader-
ship. I feel they made the right
choice," said Louis Marche-
los, UOT board member and
a frequent McIntee critic. "It
was a secret ballot, but I heard
it was a landslide."
"The will of the fire depart-
ment has spoken," said Bob
Fleishman, UOT chair. "It's a
great day for the VFD."
McIntee could not be
reached for comment.

Pompano Beach's La Cocinita brings tasty home


cooked meals to your front door or for take out


By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITER


La Cocinita
143 S. Cypress Rd.
Pompano Beach
Tel: 954-942-8778
www.la-cocinita.com

Hectic schedules, multiple
obligations and limited time
conspire to make food prepa-
ration an arduous task for
most individuals and working
families.
Enter La Cocinita, a friendly
eatery that specializes in pro-
viding healthy and nutritious
meals for those who simply
don't have the time do so
themselves.
For pick-up or delivery, La
Cocinita offers American,
Hispanic and Italian influ-
enced fare at surprisingly
affordable prices.
Classic chicken casserole,
beef stew, and tuna souffle are
just a few of the specialties on
the "dinners to go" menu.
The prepared portions are
substantial. For example, the

chicken Cacciatore features
a full pound of juicy poultry
smothered in a rich home-
made tomato sauce. Ac-
companied by a full serving
of al dente linguine, there is
enough for two people. "We

nothing but the freshest ingre-
dients" says co-owner Clara
Moreno.
The meals can simply be
reheated at home or frozen for
future use. "People can even
order meals for the entire
week and have a healthy meal
ready to go every evening,"
says Moreno.


The traditional spaghetti
with meatballs is always a big
hit with the kids. The satisfy-
ing lasagna is offered in both
the meat and chicken variety.
The meatloaf will remind you
of your mother's cooking.
In fact, as working moms
themselves, Moreno and busi-
ness partner Gloria Garcia are

keenly aware of the impor-
tance of providing a well
balanced yet flavorful meal on
a nightly basis.
"We make sure our recipes
are wholesome and satisfying.
We do not use any artificial
flavor enhancers, only quality
ingredients" asserts Garcia.
But La Cocinita also offers
a great selection of made-to-
order breakfasts and lunches.
In the mornings, a tasty break-
fast sub laden with sausage,
bacon or ham, egg and cheese
is a sure fire way to start the
day.
At midday, a variety of
salads such as the Italian, Ori-
ental, Caesar or Russian will
appeal to the health conscious.
Of course, hamburgers, hot
dogs and pita pockets are
readily available.
Of note is the large array
of hot and cold subs. The
loaded Philly cheese steak,
the Cuban and the Pompano
grilled chicken are just a few
of the hot fan favorites. On
the cold:front, the vegetarian,
Italian hoagie and tuna salad
have a loyal following. For
those with a larger appetite,
the monster sub is composed
of every meat and cheese in
the house. "
Another fun option involves
the 7" pizzetas. These indi-
vidually sized mini pizzas can
be dressed up any which way
desired. Starting at $2.25, they
are a great deal.
Even crepes and empanadas

Continued from page 8

is based on meeting distinc-
tive nutritional requirements
to help manage each of these
conditions."
Dr. Lintzeris encourages
diabetic patients who are on
insulin, but not optimally con-
trolled, to use insulin pump
therapy.
He says, "It can decrease
the amount of insulin used
and help to better regulate
blood sugars. It more accu-
rately reproduces the normal
activity of the pancreas. Sev-
eral of my patients are enthu-
siastic users of the pump."
One of those patients is
Cathy Kennedy who says,
"Dr. Lintzeris is the first doc-
tor I've had in eight years who
cares about me and how I feel.
I've been a diabetic for 14
years and all I ever get asked
is, 'What are your numbers?'
Dr. Lintzeris is my hero. He
introduced me to the insulin
pump and it really works. I
feel 100 percent better. In less
than a year I have experienced
amazing improvement. I
can't rave enough about him."
Part of his practice is
manipulative therapy which
he explains. "Pain is a signal
to me to do an osteopathic
structural exam which is
very detailed and very good
for diagnosing. Let's say a
patient comes in with a knee
problem. In an osteopathic
exam I find out a foot prob-
lem is the actual source of the
pain which stresses the knees.
By correctly identifying the
source, I can better tailor the
therapy and correction."
There are a lot of new
things happening in this
young man's life. Beside
opening a new practice, he
and his wife, Coral Villan-
ueva, D.P.M., and a member
of Imperial Point Podiatry
Associates, are expecting their
first child.
Eager to become a part of
his new community, Lintzeris
has joined the Pompano
Beach Chamber of Com-
merce, participated in a recent
Health Fair at the Emma Lou
Civic Center and has been
a guest speaker at Imperial
Point Hospital for the Bro-
ward Health Foundation.
He's on call as a lecturer at his
alma mater, Nova Southeast-
ern in the Family Medicine
Residency.
Dr. Lintzeris accepts
Medicare and all major insur-
ances. Office hours are: Mon.,
Tues.,Thurs., Fri. 8 a.m. to 5
p.m.; Wed. 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Call 954-781-2208 for an
appointment or make it on his

ter@att.net.

Stravino
took to his
profession
early on,
joining
a nearby
STRAVINO volunteer
fire department
as a cadet when he was 16.
Mentored by Bill Gunther, a
veteran NYC firefighter, he
was among 10 other young
men, nine of whom went on to
choose careers in firefighting.
A few years into college,
he learned Deerfield Beach
was hiring, took the test,
and became the youngest
man ever put on the team. A
few years later, he finished
his bachelor's degree,
fulfilling a promise to his
mother, and now he takes
online courses in a graduate
program for a degree in public
administration.
Will he miss being Chief
to a 174 -man department
and overseeing a $22 million
budget? "Sure I will," he said
this week.
For 20 years, Stravino was
deputy chief, at one point
turning down an offer for
the top job in order to be
more involved with his two
young sons. "Do I regret that?
Professionally, yes, but not
personally," he said. "I took
my kid to a state baseball
championship."
When he did take the helm,
three and a half years ago,
the department was split by
a failed attempt fostered by
local union leaders to join
BSO. The battle was fiercely
fought and cost former chief
Gary Lother his job, but when
the voters turned down BSO
3 to 1, the firefighters voted
out their union leaders and
elected a new board which
Stravino credits with turning
the department around.
Union president Sean
Confutt now sits in on all
staff meetings. "We build
consensus. The guy is in
on the decisions. It was the
beginning of real change
here," he said.
Stravino is proud of those
changes, as proud as he is of
the Mitigation Operations
Center (MOC) which houses
the fire administration and
a state-of-the-art emergency
operations center. Stravino
was project manager for
the MOC build, another
controversial issue but
one which put Deerfield
Beach light years ahead.
Equipped with the latest in
communication's technology,
the EOC can be up and
running in one minutes, 10

the twelve hundred megawatt
output of only one of FPL's
regular power plants.
FPL has also built a
seventy-five megawatt solar-
thermal facility at their Martin
natural gas power plant. With
this pilot facility, rows of
mirrors focus sun light onto a
single point, producing steam.
When the sun is shining, the
steam from solar thermal


replaces the steam generated
by the natural gas.
To further refine the solar
energy approach, FPL is
working in conjunction with
the Florida Solar Energy
Center and several Florida
universities to develop
specific solar applications
for Florida. One approach
being researched is to
replace existing roofs
with shingles that contain
photovoltaic material,
essentially transforming
roofs into solar panels. There


are test installations at two
universities and five homes
in Florida to determine
effectiveness and resistance
to severe weather. Florida
has the potential to install
energy producing solar-voltaic
shingles on the roofs of
FPL's four million customers.
This, along with a method
of storing the electricity for
nighttime use could allow
FPL to decommission many
of their fossil fuel and natural
gas plants.

Bill Hargett's legacy is found in Pompano Beach and in the hearts of his friends


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF

"Bill left a huge footprint
on this city," says Roy
Rogers, Lighthouse Point
resident, referring to his long-
time friend, Pompano Beach
City Manager C. William
Hargett, or Bill, as most
people knew him.
Hargett passed away on
Monday.
Rogers remembers meeting
Hargett on a rainy day shortly
after he arrived. Hargett had
asked Rogers, Arvida vice
president, the company that
developed Weston, to meet
with him. That day, Hargett,
Rogers and a staff member
drove down Blanche Ely
Avenue, the road that leads
to one of the the city's high
schools. "We drove the whole
corridor. It was extremely
depressed. Bill wanted to
change the corridor."
Today, Blanche Ely
Avenue is flanked with wide
sidewalks, bus shelters, a
park, trees, landscaping,
lighting and round-abouts. At
Rogers suggestion, Hargett
also buried the FP&L wiring.
Hargett arrived in Pompano
Beach in 1995. At that time
Pompano Beach was known
for having one of the highest
tax rates in Broward County.
Over the 12 years Hargett
was at the helm, the tax rate
decreased every year. When
Hargett retired in 2007, the
city was debt-free and tax
rates were in the lowest
category.
Hargett was recognized
publicly as a fierce negotiator
and a tight-fisted budget
keeper. He ran the city close
to a military fashion. And he
didn't like surprises.
Mayor Lamar Fisher


recalls his time with Hargett.
"When it came to money, I
told him he was so tight with
the dollars that his shoes
squeaked. But I admired
and respected him, and the
department heads had the
same admiration."
To avoid surprises, Hargett
insisted that everyone
do his or her homework
before city meetings. He
updated commissioners and
department heads to make
sure everyone understood
the items up for a vote and
would be prepared to answer
questions.
Sandra King, Pompano
Beach public information
officer, who assisted Bill
behind the scenes with many
events, remembers her boss.
"I had quite the learning
curve when I began working
for Bill. While he wasn't the
warm and fuzzy type, to know
Bill is to respect him. It didn't
take long for me to realize he
was absolutely brilliant and
that I could learn a lot from
him. I am extremely thankful
I had the opportunity to work
for Bill Hargett."
But Rogers was privy to
a side of Hargett that few
people knew. Hargett was
a graduate of West Point
Military Academy, and
Rogers was a graduate of the
U.S. Naval Academy. The
competition between these
two military engineers was
already built in.
"Every year we placed bets
on the Army-Navy game,"
says Rogers. "The loser
would have to bake a dozen
chocolate chip cookies and
present the cookies to the
winner at a public function.
We chose the annual city
volunteer luncheon. We had

THE ACID TEST


Dentists are observing high levels of
dental erosion among patients, which is
leaving their teeth cracked, discolored,
and feeling more sensitive. These
symptoms are due to loss of the teeth's
protective enamel coating that is being
worn away under an assault from the
acids found in a variety of beverages.
The primary culprit is phosphoric acid, a
primary flavoring agent in soft drinks,
especially colas. In fact, phosphoric acid
is the substance that dentists use to etch
the surfaces of teeth that are about to
receive the bonding agents used for
patching and repairs. Sugar found in
many soft drinks also plays a role in
tooth erosion by feeding the bacteria in
plaque that eat away at teeth.
Identify the culprit source of erosion,

possibly with the help of our dental
professionals. You should stop or
reduce consumption of the suspected
food or beverage to the absolute
minimum. Information about the acid
content of commonly consumed foods or
beverages is usually available online or
on the product's label. It is also recom-
mended to seek the professional dental
advice the practice of Dr. HUTCHI-
SON has to offer in order to possibly
restore the damaged tissues. Please call
us to schedule an appointment. We are
providers of Botox and Juvederm.
P.S. To counter the problem of acid-
induced dental erosion, dentists suggest
limiting soft drink, sport drink, and fruit
juice intake, along with increased use of
fluoride, which builds up tooth enamel.

rules. One was that the wife
was not allowed to do the
baking."
Rogers recalls having to
bake cookies only once.
"People will say that
Bill's legacy was his fiscal
brilliance, but a legacy is
what a person's life has meant
to others. He affected the
people in our community. He
changed their lives," Rogers
says.
From new parks to
massive redevelopment and
environmental projects that
included plans for city-wide
use of recycled water, Hargett
gained a reputation for
innovation and success.
Rogers says Hargett, a
Vietnam War veteran and


~-----. .~~m. c


Army captain, took his "tour"
of Pompano as seriously as
any military tour.
"His fiscal conservatism
staunchly defended the
finances of the city," said
Frank H. Furman. The result
is that the city is in excellent
financial shape."
Tony Newbold, Florida
Power & Light area manager,
stood toe-to-toe in some
tough situations with Hargett
regarding Pompano Beach
and FP&L.
Newbold also stood with
Hargett at the Palm Aire Golf
course where he, George
Minnich and Bennie Scott
made up a foursome.
"We had a 25-cent bet on
each hole," Newbold said.

"When Bill won a hole, you
could see his joy. We loved
our Saturdays on the course.
It was the joy of the week.
When Bill couldn't play, we
called him to give him the
scores. We didn't have an
opportunity to let him know
how we felt about him. That's
sad."
Former Mayor Bill Griffin
recalls the day the city
prepared to move the Sample-
McDougald House from its
original location in May 2001.
The McDougald heirs had
donated to the house to the
city to be used as a museum.
As the eight-bedroom colonial
home with its wrap-around
porch was being prepared
for lifting onto a truck that
would transport the house to
Northeast 10 Street, Mayor
Griffin discovered a litter of
puppies under the back porch
of the house.
Griffin took the entire litter,
abandoned by their mother,
to his home where later the
pups all found homes. "But
there was one puppy with blue
eyes. Bill's dog had recently
passed away. One Saturday,
he came to the house and
took the blue-eyed puppy. He
named the puppy 'Mayor.'
He later told me he enjoyed
bossing 'Mayor' around. It
was the only time he could
say 'Bad Mayor' and get
away with it."

Sandwiches and subs start

meals begin at $5.99. There is

to his men. Many have, or
are working on, advanced
degrees. He has forged
educational partnerships
with Nova SE University,
Columbia South and Barry
University that offer online
courses.
He is proud of the fire/
rescue website which contains
an extensive amount of
information for the public
including city and department
histories, action photos,
current news, Q&As, public
service opportunities and the
mission statement: "Prevent
Harm, Survive, Be Nice,
Treat People Like Family."
He is confident the new
chief, Chad Brocato has the
right stuff. "If I've done
my job, they won't miss a
beat," he says of the new
administrators.
Stravino's greatest
disappointment is his failure
to get two outmoded fire
stations rebuilt, the beach
station and the Powerline
Road station. Both are sadly
out of date and overcrowded,
but he understands the city's
financial crunch. "They
know we need them. We just
couldn't find the money," he
said.
Looking back over
his career here, Stravino
remembers a two-lane

Caring In-home Companions
For many people, growing Older means...
Health issues have made it difficult to do all the things I used to do.
It would be nice to have someone drop me off or escort me to
social outings and then take me home.
I need someone to escort me to my doctor's appointments and
pick up prescriptions.
