Purcell Houston,

community

leader, teacher
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Hundreds of family members and
friends turned out for a memorial
celebration for Purcell Houston, 77,
a longtime Pompano Beach resident,
who died Dec. 13.
The "home
going cel-
ebration"
took place
Saturday,
Dec. 19, at
Blanche Ely
High School
auditorium.
Nearly 800
were in at-
tendance.
Mr. Hous- HOUSTON
ton, known as
"Nick" and as "Coach," was a teacher,
coach and athletic director at Ely High
School for many years until 1972.
Mr. Houston was born May 16, 1932
in Richmond, Va., the only child of
the late Gertrude Houston Jenkins.
He moved to Tampa as a teen. He
received a bachelor's and master's de-
grees from Florida A&M University.

Santa hosts Open House ...


One Pompano Beach neighborhood on Southeast Sixth Street began a tradition of lighting up the street in honor of Christmas. Snow, lights, elves and
reindeer transform this South Florida area into a Winter Wonderland. Santa even finds something in his bag for the boys and girls with special wishes.

Lighthouse Point chiropractor had earlier arrest


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Lighthouse Point police were mak-
ing a traffic stop on Sample Road
when they got the call that someone
was firing a gun outside an apartment
building across the street from the
police station.
It was 3:24 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 20,
when a resident in the Lighthouse
Point Apartments at 3700 NE 22 Ave.
called 911 to report the gunshots.
The police dispatcher could hear the
shots and advised responding police
about the shooter's whereabouts.
A man, with weapon drawn, at-
tempted to enter the police department
lobby. The station is locked at that
hour.
He then moved to the northeast
employee entrance and fired multiple
rounds in the direction of officers
responding to the scene. Sgt. Curt Lai
returned fire with his patrol rifle, strik-
ing the man once in the arm and once

in the abdomen. No one else was hurt.
The suspect, identified as Xavier
Maurice Escobar, 39, of Lighthouse
Point, was taken into custody at the
scene and transported to North Bro-
ward Medical Center, where he was
listed in critical condition.
Escobar faces charges of one count
of aggravated assault on a law en-
forcement officer and one count of
shooting into a dwelling.
Police are investigating why Esco-
bar came to the apartment building


and police station and whether alcohol
or drugs were involved in this inci-
dent, according to Commander Mike
Oh of Lighthouse Point Police.
They are putting together a picture
of where he went that evening and
trying to determine what might have
precipitated this incident.
Escobar was armed with a semi-au-
tomatic handgun with armor-piercing
hollow point bullets, Oh said. The
magazine holds 20 rounds, and four
were left when he was arrested. He


shot twice at the apartment building
and at least nine times at police.
Police are still investigating whether
he obtained the gun legally.
As a matter of routine in officer-
involved shootings, Lai was placed
on administrative leave with pay. The
Broward Sheriff's Office is conduct-
ing a criminal investigation into the
incident.

2 The Pelican


Assessments are in the mail

- Good Lord willing and

the tides don't rise


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Erosion prevention on
Hillsboro Beach pro-
duces hefty price tags

HIllsboro Beach Deputy
Clerk Irene George found
herself overwhelmed this
week. She single-handedly
had to send out 2,500 letters
to residents informing them of
their specific assessment for
the $6 million beach nourish-
ment project.
Several citizens have
volunteered to help with the
task, but George said until she
matches up each letter with
the right address label, extra


hands would not be any help.
Making her job more difficult
was the tax assessor's office,
which provides the labels,
provided out-of-town address
for many residents, leaving
George to track down local
addresses.
Still, on Tuesday, she was
hopeful the assessment letters
would be in the mail Thursday
and that residents would re-
ceive them over the weekend.
The beach project is due to
begin early next year assum-
ing all state permits can be
obtained.
Consultant Phil Gonot has
presented an assessment plan
that appears to have the sup-
port of both condominium

residents and single-family
home owners. It comes after
more than a year of wrangling
between homeowner groups as
to the proper means of pay-
ing for the project. In order to
meet the state law assessments
must be apportioned fairly and
according to benefits received.
Although Gonot has made
minor adjustments to his num-
bers since last week, estimates
for the largest private resi-
dence is an assessment around
$7,000 payable over a 10-year
period.
For the smallest condo, the
assessment is about $2,400.
As the numbers emerged last
week during a lengthy discus-


sion, one resident said "We're
arguing about peanuts. Let's
cut the bickering and get it
done."
The Hillsboro Club, a
private resort owned by unit
owners, faces the stiffest bill
for beach renewal.
Initial calculations put the
figure around $400,000 and
the Club's attorney made a
plea for reducing the assess-
ment on each unit to one-
quarter of what a condo unit
will pay.
The argument was that ho-
tel rooms are not comparable
to condo units.
Commissioner Lee Bennett
said, "My concern is saying
a hotel room is equivalent to
a condo unit. I'd be comfort-
able with them paying half a
unit fee."


But commissioners re-
mained unswayed. They
pointed out that the Club's use
of the beach is the highest on
the island. The resort owns
1,000 feet of beach on the
town's southernmost end.
Gonot said it's not unit size
he must consider under state
law, but its function as well as
use of the beach. The com-
mission did agree to drop the
Club's dormitory facility from
the assessment roll because it
houses only employees.
Vice Mayor Dan Dodge,
who is the general manager
of the Club, abstained from
making comments or voting
on the issue.
A public hearing on the
beach assessment has been set
for Jan. 26.

Patrick Regan, high school senior, created a duck race to


raise funds for accessible "Homes For Our Troops"


Making a

Difference

wants your suggestions about
people you know who are
making a difference.

Patrick Regan, a senior at
Cardinal Gibbons, has high
hopes of being chosen as a
Silver Knight. He says, "Be-
side the honor which is be-
stowed on graduating seniors,
there's a $2,500 scholarship
award which would be very
welcome. One of the qualifi-
cations for seniors under con-
sideration is the challenge to
develop a community project.
I decided to make my project
a fund-raiser for the non-prof-
it organization, Home for Our
Troops, which provides and
adapts homes for handicapped
returning veterans."
The inspiration for his
project was Regan's uncle,
Steve Connery, who came
home from the Vietnam war
an amputee.
Regan says, "Uncle Steve
fought for 20 years to get ac-
cessible housing for himself.
He finally received a grant but
unfortunately, he passed away
before the work could be done
on his home. I wanted to
pay it forward and help other
returning troops to be luckier

Patrick Regan stands at the top of the ramp that he and his dad built. By apply-
ing water pressure, they were able to send the rubber ducks down the ramps
for the race. At right, the ducks slide down the ramp for the race. Regan raised
and donated $5,000 to "Homes for Our Troops" which provides accessible
housing for injured returning U.S. service men and women. [Photos courtesy

than my uncle."
He researched the internet
and found Homes for Our
Troops, a national non-profit
organization that helps service
men and women who return
home with serious disabilities
and injuries. Their mission
statement says, "We raise
donations of money, land,
building materials and profes-
sional labor, coordinating the
process of building a new,
specially adapted home or
adapting an existing home to
meet the needs of the return-
ing service person. All of this
assistance is provided at no
cost to the veterans served."
A nearby example of one
veteran's need, described in
their brochure, is Army SFC
Steven Holloway of Royal
Palm Beach.
He was wounded in Mosul,
Iraq in January of 2007 and
has been treated in Landstuhl,
Germany, Walter Reed and
finally in a Tampa VA hospi-
tal. He is a paraplegic as result
of his injuries. He, his wife
and three children live in a
townhouse that does not have


com-
plete
handi-
cap
acces-
sibility
and he
looks
forward
to liv-
ing in REGAN
a home
that will allow him more
independence. Homes for Our
Troops hopes to help solve his
problem.
On Dec. 6, Regan held a
duck race at Quiet Waters
Park in Deerfield Beach. Bro-
ward County co-sponsored
the event by waving all fees.
Regan describes what hap-
pened. I bought the rubber
ducks from a carnival. My
dad helped me build a ramp
and by applying water pres-
sure, we were able to send
the ducks into racing action.
Donations were $5 per duck.
First place winner was Steve
Callogo for a $500 prize.
Second place with a $200
prize went to Father Cronin

MLK committee to begin Dr. Martin Luther King
celebrations with Interfaith Prayer Breakfast


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
"It's not just an African
American thing; it's some-
thing we can all embrace and
rejoice in," says Pastor Gary
McCleod of Mount Sinai Bap-
tist Church of Deliverance,
Pompano Beach.
Pastor McCleod chairs
the Dr. Martin Luther King
Interfaith Breakfast, Jan. 9 at
8 a.m. at the E. Pat Larkins
Civic Center, 520 MLK Blvd.
This year's theme, "Making
Real the Promise: Now is the


Time" will be the focus of the
breakfast."
McCleod explains that
much of the message of Dr.
King has been experienced,
but there is much more to do.
"If you look at the first
African American president,
it appears that the dream has
come to pass. But in reality
there is still prejudice. All of
us are one people," he says.
Tickets for the Prayer
Breakfast are $12.
On Jan. 11 through Jan. 16,
the celebration continues with
the King Basketball Classic,


The final tournament will be
held at Mitchell-Moore Park,
901 NW 10 St., Pompano
Beach at 10 a.m. Cost is $200
per team.
The Dr. Martin Luther King
parade will take place Jan. 18,
beginning at Mitchell-Moore
Park.
Celebration 2010 will take
place at Blanche Ely High
School at 10:30 a.m.
The public is invited to
participate in all events. For
more information, call 954-
786-4585.

The ultimate Christmas gift


By Emily Walshe
CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
Santa Claus is coming. We
know, because we track him
on NORAD's satellites.
That's what we did last year
- shuffled the kids off to bed as he left
Western Samoa, confident that he'd be
here by morning.
Last year, too, we skipped the whole
"sitting-upon-Santa's-lap" thing. In-
stead, we texted him directly: "we cnt
w8 4 xmas!," from which we relished
the automated reply, "b g%d!"
While reaching into the attic recent-
ly for our digitally remastered Dickens
DVDs, I contemplated the season of
Advent, and how remarkably adept
we've become at collapsing the es-
sence of things even Christmas. It's
just one of the insidious ways, I sup-
pose, in which we have come to take
on the characteristics of our technolo-
gies.
Advent is literally the season of
looking forward. It is predicated upon
the idea of arrival, and in this way, it
clashes with digital culture and the
instantaneous, 24/7, asynchronous
architecture of the Internet.
Last December, our children cut-
and-pasted their wish lists from an
ethereal host of dotcoms, uploaded
them for distant relatives, chatted live
with avatar elves, and even logged on
to Rudolph's webcam in an 11th-hour
attempt to substantiate faith (a faith
that, in all of their 11 years, had never
failed them).
People who study the spatiotemporal
aspects of technology understand that,
much like the mechanical clocks of
the last millenniums, our computers
are affecting and changing temporality
- our perceptions of time; its mea-
surement; and the ways in which it is


organized, consumed and chronicled.
At no other point in the year is this
more apparent to me than at Christ-
mas, when calendrical and liturgical
times converge under a woolly blanket
of subjective, global space.
For our kids, the sweet, slow peni-
tential design of an Advent season is,
like, sooooo 20th century. Why wait?
This is precisely the question that
lines store shelves with seasonal
novelties in early October. It's the
question that betinsels our main streets
and broadcasts Bing Crosby before
Thanksgiving. And it's the question
that trumpets incessantly now in the
form of glossy secular circulars and
countless QuickTime tidings.
Advent is a discipline. It is a waiting
- and we're not accustomed to that,
partly because of the tools that render
it wholly unnecessary. This year, as
I watch our children ready their lists
(unplugged), I marvel at how technol-
ogy can contract life's mysteries. Wise
men looked to the sky. We have GPS.
"Technology ... is a queer thing,"
says comedian Carrie Snow. "It brings
great gifts with one hand and stabs
you in the back with the other."
There is a time for proof and a time
for providence.
Now perhaps more than at any
other time in our history we must
pursue a sense of wonder and, when
we find it, cling to it self-consciously.
Because Christmas lacks meaning
without a forward-looking Advent;
and we need the future tense. We
need if only for four short weeks of
the year a litany of hope in what is
unseen and yet to come.

Emily Walshe is a librarian and
professor at Long Island University in
New York.

fortable. If someone is in a bad mood, I become in a
bad mood. Because of this, I find that I isolate myself.
What can I do?
Isolated in Lighthouse Point

Dear Isolated,
We are each individual in this world yet all united.
We pick up on peoples' energy because of this unity;
however, it is important to remember that we are also
our own beings. You get uncomfortable around people
because you are fearful that you may "catch" their
moods.
When someone is sad for example, it is OK to feel
sad, but the reason it remains with you is either this sad-
ness touches a repressed sadness in yourself or you are
identifying with this person's sadness and lose yourself
in it.
There is really no reason to fear the sadness of others.
If it touches a repressed part in you, work through it.
It is a great opportunity for growth. If you see you are
starting to identify too much with the sadness of others,
step back, take a breath and reconnect to yourself. You
are separate from that person.
What you are feeling is total empathy for the person.
Empathize totally and then let go. It is their challenge
and their opportunity for growth.
In addition, sometimes their energy is toxic, and it is
wise to distance yourself.

Imperial Point Medical Center opens state-of-the-art


ER facility with 20 treatment rooms on Jan. 3
By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF


Imperial Point Medical
Center, or IMPC, an integral
branch of Broward Health, is
proud to offer the community
this new, carefully planned,
$17 million expanded and
enhanced Emergency Room
quadrupling the size of its pre-
vious department. Located at
6401 N. Federal Hwy. in Fort
Lauderdale, this new ER was
designed by medical staff with
special attention to function,
technology and green strate-
gies. Calvin Glidewell, CEO,
says, "We are so pleased to be
opening two months ahead of
schedule. Our expansion was
essential to accommodate our
area's growing population and
its needs. Last year we treated
more than 30,000 patients in
the ER which was the same
size as it was when this hospi-
tal opened 37 years ago, serv-
ing a much smaller community.
As one visitor touring the
impressive new facility said,
"No one wants to end up in an
ER, but if one must, this is the
one to choose."
The new building has in-
creased the footage from 6,200
square feet to 24,063 square
feet which translates into short

time waits, ease of acces-
sibility and improved patient
flow, so important in this
designated primary stroke
center. The Medical Center's
staff, physicians and nurses
had input on the design
down to the placement of


lights and outlets. A mock ER
was created by the project's
construction company, ANF,
so that these professionals
could help to design a layout
that would function most ef-
fectively.
The new ER includes a

Shooter
Continued from page 1

"It's standard for BSO to
investigate any homicides and
any police-involved shoot-
ings in Lighthouse Point by
the contract Lighthouse Point
Police have with them," Oh
said.
Escobar was previously ar-
rested in 2005 by Lighthouse
Point police on charges of
discharging a firearm in pub-
lic and possession of a firearm
while under the influence of
alcohol.
In this latest incident, dis-
patcher Ann Marie Augustis
did a terrific job of keeping
officers informed, Oh said.
"She was behind concrete and
bullet-resistant glass, so she
was fairly safe in the locked
building," he said.
As far as police could
determine in their prelimi-
nary investigation, no one at
the apartment building knew
Escobar.
One apartment window was
shot, and Escobar fired in
the apartment courtyard. Oh
pointed out bullet holes in a
tree at the police station where
Escobar fired and bullet holes
in a light fixture and on the
wall of the building depart-
ment, where Sgt. Lai fired.
The building department is in
the same building as police.
Neighbor Jane Groves said
the incident is totally out of
character for the man she
knows as "a very, very nice
guy who wouldn't hurt a
flea." She speculates that he
must have had some kind of
mental breakdown.
Groves has known the Esco-
bars for the seven years they


Lighthouse Point Fire Chief

congratulates team on good work


Lighthouse Point Police
Chief Ross Licata had just
returned Saturday night
from vacationing in New
York to be greeted the next
day with reports of this
shooting incident.
"It's quite an incident at
our police facility," he said.
"It's important to recognize
the outstanding job our of-
ficers and police dispatcher
did and the actions they
took to prevent any loss
of life to our citizens and
police."
Licata commended dis-
patcher Ann Marie Augus-
tis for her work in monitor-
ing surveillance cameras,
getting on the police radio
and giving officers step-by-
step instructions on where
the suspect was and what
he was doing.
"At times he was
crouched down concealing
himself and hiding behind
foliage. One of our officers
would have easily been


have lived across the street
from her in the 3900 block of
Northeast 25th Avenue and
says she's a good friend. "I
love them. They're very, very
sweet. Maybe it's the pres-
sures of life or the pressures
of the season," she said.
Groves said the couple had
hosted a dinner party at their
home Sunday evening and
then gone to bed. She said
Mrs. Escobar was unaware her
husband had left the home.
Their two young boys were


ambushed had it not been for
her diligence and initiative
in seeing what was happen-
ing. This was 3:30 a.m., and
he was concealed in an area
where he wasn't easily visible
from the street," Licata said.
"She played an instrumental
role in preventing our guys
from getting hurt."
Licata said officers also did
an admirable job in respond-
ing and setting up across the
street from the police station
to put themselves at a tactical
advantage in dealing with the
situation.
"We spend time and re-
sources training for a day
when something like this may


staying with relatives that
evening. Police woke her up.
"She didn't know what hap-
pened. And now she's isn't
being allowed to see him in
the hospital." Groves said she
thought that was terrible.
Escobar installed surveil-
lance cameras all around the
house after some break-ins
and after some kids attempted
to steal stainless steel propel-
lers on a friend's boat behind
his house, Groves said. And
he hired a detective to watch
his house when he had to be
out.
Groves recalled an incident
where one of the Escobars'
two pitbulls got loose and


happen. Our training and
patrol rifles proved to be
instrumental in diffusing
what could have been a
deadly situation."
Licata said the mayor and
commissioners also should
be recognized for the role
they played in providing
the necessary resources for
police in installing secu-
rity surveillance around
the building and providing
the resources to purchase
patrol rifles and laser sites.
"Because of that we had a
successful outcome in this
incident," he said.
Lighthouse Point doesn't
have many incidents like
this one. As a result, "It
would be easy for officials
in a community like ours
to say, 'It's not necessary
We're tight on money.'
They had the foresight to
make sure our officers are
equipped with the best pos-
sible resources to do the job
and thank God they did."


killed a neighbor's cat. "He
was so upset, he got rid of the
pit bull. He was very upset
and concerned about his
neighbor's feelings."
Escobar is a licensed chiro-
practor, listed as a partner at
Florida Atlantic Orthopedics
in Boca Raton and All Florida
Pain Management in Pom-
pano Beach. No one could be
reached for comment at either
office.
Crime was down in Light-
house Point in November. The
last time an officer fired his
gun was last January, when he
tried to stop a vehicle on 31st
Ave., Oh said. He fired and
struck the suspect.

Houston
Continued from page 1
While attending FAMU,
he met the former Gwendo-
lyn Harrison and they were
married Oct. 20, 1953, for 55
years until her death, March
15 of this year.
After college graduation,
Mr. Houston began teach-
ing physical education and
coaching at Blanche Ely High
School in 1954. While teach-
ing there, he was drafted into
the U.S. Army and served


honorably for two years. He
returned to Ely, where he
coached football, basketball,
track and swimming and
served as athletic director.
In 1972, "Coach Houston"
moved to Hollywood Hills
High School, where he was
assistant administrator for
more than 20 years. In 1993,
he retired from the Broward
County school system after 38
years of service.
After retirement Mr. Hous-
ton devoted much of his time
to the community. He was
often called on to assist young

people applying to college
or to share his expertise in
sports. He was sought after
to emcee many religious and
community programs and
banquets. He was well known
for his deep voice and sense
of humor.
He was a member of Kappa
Alpha Psi Fraternity, Pom-
pano Beach Westside Ki-
wanis Club, Rattler "F" Club
(a group of former football
players) and Mount Calvary
Baptist Church and its Male
Chorus.
When the aquatic center
at Mitchell Moore Park was
recently named for him and
college friend Samuel Sworn,
Mr. Houston attended the
ceremonies. "He was very
proud of that, and I was glad
they did it while he was
alive to see it," his daughter
Wanda Smith said. They
were honored for spending
more than 30 years mentoring


local youth in various athletic
fields.
Mr. Houston was also rec-
ognized recently, along with
other former teachers and
players, during a program at
Ely.
"I am proud to be his
daughter and to have been
raised by a man of his cali-
ber," Smith said. "He had a
great heart. He sent a card to
every sick person he knew,
visited the sick and went to
every funeral. He probably
sent out 20 cards a day."
Smith said she received 10
cards last Christmas, includ-
ing one for each grandchild.
"That's just the way he was.
He was known for his humor,
and he demanded respect. He
insisted on people calling him
Mr. Houston, unless you were
a close friend."
Mr. Houston is survived
by four children: Reginald
(Debra), Debra, Wanda (Jesse)


and Mark; nine grandchildren,
Josh, Danladi, Jessica, Ashley,
Lauren, Tahjee, Shannon,
Nikolette and Mark; and four
great-grandchildren: Ja'Leah,
Ja'Keah, Ja'Varri and Ladari-
ous Jr. and his godson Reggie
Williams.
About 50 members of the
fraternity attended the service,
along with U.S. Rep. Alcee
Hastings, State Rep. Perry
Thurston and Pompano Beach
City Commissioner Woodrow
Poitier. The Rev. Anthony
Burrell officiated.
Pallbearers were from the
Ely Class of 1964.
"He will be greatly missed
by the community. He made
an impact," Poitier said. "Be-
cause of that lots of lives are
better."
Poitier said Mr. Houston
stopped by to see him once or
twice a week and always had
a good funeral home joke. He
was known as a jokester.
His close friends, Herman
Pittman and George Dillard,
were among those who spoke
at the service.
"Nick was always a hard
Worker. Once he set out to do)
a job, he put himself into it,
and it usually came out okay,"
Pittman said. They were,
friends since highly shojmin
Tampa.
"He was always very articu-
late and an emce for many |
organizations. And %hen he
was liround, t4ere was. alI'%?
a lot of teasinggoing on," Pit-
tman said. .-.
Pittman recalled meeting p
Gwendolyn on the college
campus and telling his friends,
including Nick, about her.
"She was very attractive, and,
I was interested for myself.'
I thought I had it made," he
said, "The next day Nick
was strutting around with
her holding hands," he said,
laughing at the memory. "He
later married her."
Nevertheless, he said the
two men remained close
friends through the years.
Interment was at Pompano
Beach Cemetery. L.C. Poitier
Funeral Home had charge of
arrangements.

Deerfield seeking means to lien abandoned properties using tax roll


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Taking a cue from the City
of Port St. Lucie where home
foreclosures rank among the
highest in the state, Deerfield
Beach commissioners are
taking steps to protect neigh-
borhoods from the distress
caused by abandoned proper-
ties.
Approval was given last
week for an ordinance creat-
ing a nuisance abatement
program which will allow the
city to identify properties not
up to code, levy penalties and
impose special assessments
and liens which may appear
on the tax rolls.
Deerfield Beach will be the
second city in Florida to enact
these measures.
In Port St. Lucie, the ordi-


nance has produced impres-
sive figures: Since 2007,
307 of 310 cases have been
settled.
Land use attorney Sharon
Cruz drew the ordinance for
Deerfield Beach. She ac-
knowledged there may be le-
gal challenges, but said, "It's
worth trying. It's a good in-
novative ordinance." In other
states, there are ordinances
that deal similarly with aban-
doned, vacant and foreclosed
homes, Cruz said.
Commissioner Bill Ganz
was introduced to St. Lucie's
code at a League of Cities
meeting. That community has
more than 12,000 foreclo-
sures.
Any cost to the city not sat-
isfied by the property owner
will appear on the tax roll and
Ganz said, "We will get it

back."
Deerfield Beach already has
an ordinance which requires
banks to register and maintain
abandoned properties. That
ordinance was initiated by
Ganz before he became a city
commissioner in March and
was one of the first in Bro-
ward County.
The newly proposed ordi-
nance is applicable not only
to properties with unpaid
mortgages, but to all dilapi-
dated housing in the city. A
public hearing on the nuisance
abatement ordinance is set for
Jan. 5.
Relaxed sign code
may be extended
Commissioners will likely
extend a resolution that tem-
porarily relaxes Deerfield's
sign code. The resolution,
passed in September, allows


for banner signs, sandwich
board signs, inflatables, menu
boards and vehicles signs and
is meant as a boost to business
in hard times.
It expires Jan. 1, and Com-
missioner Joe Miller wants
a 90-day extension so busi-
nesses will continue to get
promotional opportunities
formerly against the law.
Commissioner Bill Ganz said
he favors the extension "as
long as it doesn't become
permanent."
Smoke-free beach
sought
Two Deerfield Beach
residents are asking the com-
mission to establish a no-
smoking area on the public
beach. Caryl Berner said she
believes such an action would
create a positive image for
the city as well as provide


a healthier atmosphere for
beach goers. Agreeing with
her, Mary Drabik pointed
out that California has no-
smoking beaches and the
Ocean Conservancy reports
cigarettes contain dangerous
chemicals and contribute to
beach debris. The commission

event was cut short by unseasonable weather but not before the snow hill
was stormed by kids who have never seen the real thing. [Right] Cage, 6,

many people financial
problems. Jobs were scarce,
and Ernest worked for the
Kesters, building cottages
at $1 per day. He was hired
as Pompano Fire Chief from
1944 to 1948.
Ernest enjoyed the fire
department especially at
Christmas time when the fire
truck was used to bring "Santa
Claus" to the vacant lot across
the street from the fire house,
bringing presents and candy
to the children.
Later on after his tenure
as Fire Chief, he worked on
the Pompano State Farmers'
Market loading and unloading
produce that was destined
for the markets up North. He

The Courson family played
a huge role in the forming
and development of Pompano

their influence, Pompano
would not be the vibrant
appealing place in South
Florida today to live and raise
families

Chanukah celebration on the beach inspires writer to recall history of event


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
As the sun began to set on
the East Coast, there stood
a young, energetic, Chabad
Rabbi with his wife and baby.
The new found congregation
alongside some 200 curious
bystanders, and I were handed
Dreidels, chocolate coins, and
a chance to enter a free raffle.
As I gave my name to the
young woman she announced
she was the Rabbi's wife,
her name was Shana and she
wished a "Happy Chanukah"
to all.
Over the loud speakers
on South Ocean Way the
story of Chanukah was told.
"A mighty Greek army was
taking over the world over 21
centuries ago. As they took
over the Middle East they
began to force all the other
nations to observe their Pagan
ways, until they bumped into
the Jewish nation. A small

Gaps between the upper two front
teeth may appear for the simple reason
that there is more room than necessary
to accommodate all of the teeth.
Otherwise, it may be that the muscle
attachment (frenum) that is found
between the upper lip and the upper
dental arch (in the area of the two front
teeth) is too large or fibrous. If so, the
front teeth may splay. A simple surgical
procedure may be all that is necessary
in this case to relieve the pressure
exerted by the frenum. After that, the
gap between the two front teeth may be
closed using a bonding procedure that
builds up tooth material on both sides of
the space.
It's obvious that our smile, or more
specific our teeth, are important to us in

with the matriarch being
Matisyahu began a revolt. As
they took back Jerusalem and
won, they sought to reinstate
the Temple once again. When
a lone jug of pure olive oil
was found and put into the
Menorah a miracle occurred,
the amount which barely
should have lasted for one
day lasted for eight days!"
While the Rabbi was telling
the story, a thought hit me.
It was no coincidence that I
was here today on the beach.
Today we were all here in
unity to celebrate a century
old symbol of freedom. I, the
Jew, the non-Jew, the young,
the old, the American, the
Mexican and the Rabbi were
all here to show we stand for
tolerance and peace.
I raised my hands in a clap
as Rabbi called Commissioner
Joe Miller of District 1 in
Deerfield Beach to light the
head-candle also known as


many ways. New advances in cosmetic
dentistry have everyone smiling. Let us
help you increase your sense of self-
esteem. For complete dental care,
come see us at the practice of Dr.
HUTCHISON. Let us help you make
the most of your smile. As your dental
professional, we pride ourselves on
providing the highest quality dental
care, in a relaxing and comfortable
environment. Call us to schedule an
appointment. We are providers of Botox
and Juvederm.

P.S. A frenectomy is a surgical
procedure in which the frenum is cut
away from the gum so that its
attachment will be further away from the
teeth.

the candle of peace on behalf
of the city and all of us. A few
more honorees and we lined
up for some complimentary,
traditional hot potato Latkes
and jelly-doughnuts.
Then a commotion broke
out behind me as I saw a
handful of white shirts and
black fedora hats running in a
circle ah... the old European
clothing and joyful dancing
as I have seen on Fiddler
on the Roof. The men all
joined the dancing as the


women clapped a tune so
calming yet so cheerful. The
children were on their parent's
shoulders holding on for dear
life. Chocolate on their faces
and dreidels in their hands,
they smiled smiles that can
only be on happy, carefree
children who are in the United
States during holiday season;
happily and proudly able to
share it with the world on a
small quite beach in Deerfield
Beach. And then the sun set,
the music died and the people

left as if it were a dream.
An experience I will never
forget.
Thank you City of Deerfield
Beach and its leaders, our
sponsors, The Gold Shop,

and Pompano Licoln Mercury.
G-D should continue to bless
you and the entire United
