The tales of three cities take a look at 2009 to see how we fared


Marathon meetings, discontent marked

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea in 2009


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
It was another year of conten-
tion in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
with marathon, two-day commis-
sion meetings. The police chief
was dismissed, the town manager


finally reviewed and the vice mayor
failing in his last-minute bid to
become fire chief.

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Vice
Mayor Jerry Mclntee was elected

PELICAN WRITER
The year just past was fashioned
largely by politics. Voters elected
two new commissioners and a new
mayor, putting behind a turbulent
four years. A city manager was
suspended and fired and the mayor
and a commissioner were suspend-
ed from office by the governor
after being charged with felonies
relating to their public service.
So by comparison, things ran
smoothly last year. The conten-
tious moments came and went
with no one the worse for the wear,
at least visibly.
Among major achievements was
the city's successful bid for $40

Pompano Beach felt the sting of

a faltering economy, and we all

gained a new vocabulary

Stimulus any stimulating
information or event; acts to arouse
action, but in 2009, it meant gov-
ernment funding
Pompano Beach was near the
head of the pack when it came to
home foreclosures. The Wall Street
debacle was not a trickle-down
event; it was a tsunami, striking the
real estate market as well as small
business owners.


Homeowners in some cases
walked away from their mortgages,
leaving the city to deal with over-
grown lawns, algae-filled swimming
pools and vermin.
Banks holding the mortgages held
off taking possession of abandoned
homes lest they be saddled with un-
paid taxes and maintenance of them.
New laws dealing with liens and
vacated properties were passed with
some funding from federal stimulus

Plans are now taking shape for ,
the annual Tiger Trail Festival, an. .
event that celebrates the rich black
history in the City of Pompano
Beach.
"Although the event originates in
the northwest section of the.city, it
puts a positive spin on the relation-
ships in the whole city," said Ed
Phillips, festival chairman.
Events get under way with a
William F Boynton Memorial
5K Run/Walk Saturday, Jan. 30,
intended to encourage positive
health in the community.
About 30 participants have
signed up, including some avid
runners and avid walkers, Phillips
said. Among them are several area


-ministers, Pompano Beach Mayor
, Lamar Fisher and former Mayor
John Rayson.'
- -"It's lots of fun, and some will
strain to complete the distance. I
will be running, and I'll be strain-
ing," Phillips said with a laugh.
He's in training now.
Phillips' brother Felton Phillips
is chairing the run/walk. The event
Starts at 6:15 a.m. at the E. Pat Lar-
kins Center at 520 MLK Boulevard
with a memorial service and ribbon
cutting. The race starts at 7 a.m.
The event.will honor Boynton with
recollections, photos and family
anecdotes.
"It is our hope this event will
honor a man who had a positive im-
pact on the lives of so many young

men," the festival website
says.
Boynton graduated from
Florida A&M University and
was an All-American cen-
ter on the football team. He
coached football at Blanche
Ely High School and later
was track & field coach and
the first cross country coach
at Ely.
The Phillips brothers ran


cross country and track under
him. In 1968, they won the
Class A cross country state
championship in Clearwater,
the only African-American
team taking part, Felton
recalled.
At Ely High School, Fel-
ton recalled how, "if a team
member didn't have shoes,
he would buy them." And be-
sides being coach, he drove an
old farm bus to the meets. "He
was a mentor and someone we
all looked up to," Felton said.

After he left Ely, Boynton
coached at Deerfield Beach
High School.
Asked if he is running in
the 5K race, Felton said,
"The jury is still out on that.
"He's never, ever beat me," he
said of his brother. "But I've
picked up some weight. It will
be a last-minute decision, and
I'll be doing more like a slow
crawl."
The run/walk starts at the
Larkins Center, goes on the
south side of MLK Boulevard
east to Third Avenue, then
left around the median. Run-
ners will proceed west to just
east of Powerline Road, then
left and back to the Larkins

million in stimulus funding
for the construction of the
Dixie Highway flyover, the
$500,000 purchase of beach
property adjacent to the fish-
ing pier, construction of three
new water wells, innovative
legislation that mitigates the
detrimental effect of fore-
closed homes on a neighbor-
hood, contracts to shore up
the fishing pier and redesign
the entrance, restrooms and
restaurant, and the sinking
of a 165-foot freighter that
has become a habitat for
sea life and an attraction for
scuba divers. That the Hills-
boro Streetscape, which has
bogged traffic down between
US 1 and the beach for a year,
is nearing completion should
also be mentioned.
The incident that generated
the most news was undoubt-
edly the attack on Deerfield
Beach Middle School student
Michael Brewer who was
set on fire by a group of his
classmates in October after an
argument over money report-
edly owed. Brewer suffered
second and third-degree burns
on 65 percent of his body.
The community responded
with outrage and contribu-
tions. Brewer was released
from the Jackson Memorial
Bur Center to spend Christ-
mas with his family and three


young men have been charged
with second degree attempted
murder.
Here's at look at 2009.

JANUARY
Three former office hold-
ers seek to become mayor:
incumbent (and suspended
mayor) Al Capellini, Jean
Robb, who held the job in
the 80s, and Peggy Noland,
a Dist. 1 commissioner for
12 years. They were joined
by activist Caryl Berner and
businessmen Don Cleveland
and C. Don Peterson.
In Dist. 1, incumbent Pam


Militello was challenged by
Joe Miller whose chore it was
to wean voters away from the
message of the Original Save
Our Beachers who hugely
supported Militello.
In Dist. 2, Sylvia Poitier ran
unopposed after Erma King
Jorden withdrew and in Dist.
3, Marty Popelsky was chal-
lenged by business consultant
and Century Village East
condo leader Donna Capobi-
anco and Crystal Lake realtor
Jurandir Albuquerque.
The line up in Dist. 4 pitted
former Fire Chief Gary Lother

leader Bill Ganz.
While the candidates were
gearing up, the commission
appointed two citizens to sit
in for Poitier, who moved into
the mayor's chair, and Steve
Gonot, whose Dist. 4 seat was
vacant after his suspension by
the governor.
They were Gloria Battle in
Dist. 2 and Colleen DiDonato
in Dist. 4 and both served


their brief terms conscien-
tiously.

One crisis faced this tem-
porary commission: the
city threatened to cut water

Watch for the Miami Blue butterfly

and be part of its survival
Special to The Pelican
FLORIDA FISH AND WILDLIFE


Only the luckiest among us have ever seen the
delicate blue of the Miami blue butterfly. But to
save them from extinction, more than luck is need-
ed. The Miami blue's fragile hold on its diminished
coastal habitat in Florida requires diligent work to
increase its numbers to a safe level for future sus-
tainability.
For that reason, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Ia Conservation Commission (FWC) will begin updat-
ing the management plan for this rare butterfly that calls Florida home.
"We've received new information over the past few years, and management
of the Miami blue must be revamped to address the best possible conservation
measures for its survival," said David Cook, the FWC biologist who heads up
the Miami Blue Management Plan team. "More importantly, we want the Miami
blue to thrive."
The FWC requests information on the status and conservation needs of the
Miami blue. It also asks the public to comment on any economic, ecological and
social factors that should be considered in the management of the species.
Once, this thumbnail-sized butterfly fluttered as far north as Hillsborough
County on the Gulf Coast and Volusia County on the Atlantic Coast. Suspected
culprits, such as habitat degradation, fragmentation and loss, and pesticide and
herbicide spraying, relegated the Miami blue to the Keys. After the devastation
of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, scientists believed the butterfly was gone forever.
Much excitement accompanied the discovery of a small colony of 50 Mi-
ami blue butterflies in Bahia Honda State Park in the Keys in 1999. The FWC
listed the species as endangered in 2002 in an emergency action after the North
American Butterfly Association petitioned the agency.
The McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity at the University of
Florida, with funding from the FWC and other sources, has been successful in
breeding the Miami blue in captivity.
"We keep a large captive colony," said Jaret Daniels, assistant professor of
entomology at UF and a conservation biologist. "We use the captive-bred Miami
blues for research, reproduction and reintroduction."
Daniels said the Miami blue butterfly provides an opportunity to educate the
public about an endangered species. The species can be seen at Bahia Honda
State Park in a way other endangered species cannot, and that can go a long way
to helping people understand the importance of all species.
Cook said. "That's one reason it is vitally important that the public contact us
with any information about Miami blue sightings."

and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 620 South Meridian St., Mail Station

Keep your eyes open and listen as

the universe helps you learn
Dear Debbie,


Certain things about my new boyfriend remind me
of my ex, Yikes! I thought I would never do that again.
Can you help me understand why I like this guy when I
specifically wanted the exact opposite?
Yikes in Pompano

Dear Yikes,

We are attracted to certain people for a reason. Many
times it is either to relive a past experience in order to
fix it or to acquire a certain trait that we feel is missing
in ourselves. With that being said it is ok to like that
type of personality, just make sure to take the relation-
ship slowly and continually check in with yourself to
make sure that you are internally aware.
Awareness includes that voice inside that says the
relationship is moving too quickly, is overwhelming or
you are feeling a bit possessive. These are examples of
your internal signs to caution you to slow down.
Ask yourself, what am I trying to fix here? What am I
trying to fill?
Once you get the answer sit with it. Allow yourself
to accept the fact that life works in this way: you say in
words that you want the exact opposite of your ex, but
in reality if you have not resolved the underlying reason
for the attraction, your unconscious will lead you to the
exact same situation.


Debbie Gottlieb, MSW
works with individuals,
couples and families to
help them uncover inner
strengths and rediscover
their true selves through
mind, body and spirit.
Debbie works with three

proach. She can be found
at The Growth and Healing
Wellness Center, www.

Cypress Creek Road #205,
Fort Lauderdale, 954- 491-

View it as a challenge from the universe. Once the lesson is learned, you will
no longer need to be confronted by the same situation. Your inner self has led
you to a similar relationship. Choose to approach and handle it differently.
You have the strength and wisdom within. Just take time to connect with
yourself and date with your eyes wide open.
Debbie

and city officials the matter
was finally resolved, but some
months later a Palms resident
complained to the state board
of ethics that Poitier had
asked for a job in return for
her help in the matter.

FEBRUARY
The big news was the $40
million in stimulus funding
awarded to the Metropolitan
Planning Organization for
the Dixie Highway flyover, a
1,600-foot bridge across the
FEC Railroad and Hillsboro
Canal connecting Deerfield
Beach with Boca Raton.

And a turf war pitted the
Gates of Hillsboro Homeown-
ers' Association against two
of its residents who installed
artificial grass instead of sod


in their yard. Residents asked
the commission to ban the
artificial material, although
the environmentally friendly
property owners argued that
their yard more than met,
by far, the rules for 'living
green.'
In the good news depart-
ment, Women In Distress
announced it had purchased
an assisted living facility in
Deerfield Beach for its new
campus which will allow the
organization to expand its ser-
vices for women and children.

MARCH
Determined to get a major
piece of legislation passed
before the city commission
election, Commissioner Pam
Militello, aided by her attor-
ney Tom Connick, wrote and
presented for approval a new
code of ethics for Deerfield
Beach public officials.
"The standards are big-


ger than not merely acting
illegally." Tom Connick, the
attorney that drafted the new
ethics law, said.
The election seated a new
city commission, one more
inclined to favor business op-
portunities and development.
Peggy Noland defeated
Capellini in his former strong-
hold, Century Village East.
Miller eked out a 165-vote
victory over Militello. Ganz
defeated Lother by 262 votes
and Popelsky handily retained
his seat with double the votes
of Capobianco. Alberquerque
ran a poor third.
"I went to everybody as
they got out of their cars and
said, "Hi, I'm Peggy Noland,
and I'm running for mayor.
Please vote for me." Noland

tion day strategy in Century

The Westside Businessman


Association is questioned
about its fiscal situation when
it asked for money to pay
its water bill. The $30,000
request was denied and the
group was asked to come
forward with financial state-
ments. A $30,000 grant from
city funds made in 2008 was
never explained. The financial
statements were not forthcom-
ing, but the association oper-
ates on federal housing dollars
which require no commission

The 165-foot freighter Miss
Lourdies went to its final
resting place a mile east of
the Deerfield Beach Pier to
become a scuba diving desti-
nation.
Delays in obtaining state
permits were overcome
when dive shop owner Ari
Pavan contacted Gov. Char-
lie Christ's office and the
paperwork was facilitated.
Pavan, and other supporters
of the project, were intent on
bringing the Miss Lourdies
to Deerfield Beach in June be-
cause a major benefactor, Dan
Fasano, was gravely ill.
Fasano had contributed a
$10,000 bronze statute of an
angel that he had welded to
the bow of the vessel. He died
a few days later.
Residents of Waterford
Estates dispute the location of
a generator needed for a $5.5
million water field expansion.
After several meetings with


city officials, residents and
the contractor, the citizens
prevailed and the generator
was moved.
"We are willing to bite the
bullet. We just don't want to
swallow the machine gun,"
said Waterford resident Joan
Maurice.
With budget talks looming,
firefighters make their re-
quests. They want $1 million
in matching grant funds to
rebuild the Powerline Road
Station, $94,000 for additions
to the Mitigation Operations
Center and funds to assume
local dispatch operations. The
city manager suggests raising
the fire fee to $149 from $99.
JULY
City Manager Mike Mah-
aney makes personnel moves
that he said save $275,000
and consolidates some
departments. Mayor Noland
disagrees and urges him to
hire an assistant city man-
ager and risk manager. Soon


after, Mason Sammons, Jr. is
hired to fill the first spot and
becomes the chief negotiator
with the city's unions. The
sessions begin with the unions
and the city far apart on wage
increases, longevity and merit
pay and the union's push for
extended pension plans.
Jean Robb and Bill Ganz
have a dustup and Robb is
dismissed from the non-
uniform employees pension
board for trying to get pen-
sion periods extended prior to
officially taking her seat on
the board and for her com-
munications with commissio-
ers which Ganz feared were
illegal.
"I like Jean. I don't always
like her style," said Commis-
sioner Ganz explaining his
desire to have Robb removed
from the board..
"Whomever they appoint
will never have the knowl-
edge of the city that I have,"

said Robb in response to
Ganz's actions.
AUGUST
City Manager Mahaney
attempts to schedule two bud-
get workshops, but the new
commission, eager for a line-
by-line review of the 2009 -10
fiscal plan set multiple meet-
ings. Eventually, the fire fee
hike is taken off the table and
the city commission instructs
management to cut $6.4 mil-
lion from the proposal. The
final result was $3.4 million
in cuts.
"We couldn't find another
$3.4 million, but it was not for
lack of trying," said Commis-
sioner Ganz after he chal-
lenged Mahaney to do better.
Commission appoints citi-
zens to review the new ethics
code after Commissioner Joe
Miller says discrepancies had
been found by the FAU Ethics
Academy.
"The ordinance was adopted
in great haste, but it would be
an error to repeal it in haste,"
said Miller in asking for the
review board.
Miami Jewish Home and
Hospital announces it will
close the deHoernle Alzheim-
er's Pavilion in Deerfield
Beach. The news produces a
round of hopeful buyers, none
of which meet the seller's
standards. The residents are
relocated and the facility
reverts back to the city. Some
NE Focal Point services will
be located there.
"I didn't concur with their
thinking, and so I resigned.
Alzheimer's takes two lives


-the patient's and the caregiv-
er's," said Dave Farkas, Chair
of the deHoernle Board, when
he learned the facility would
close.
JB's on the Beach gets the
nod to operate the pier restau-
rant, but a glitch occurs when
it is discovered the owners of
JB's failed to disclose contri-
butions to both Noland's and
Miller's political campaigns.
Commission decides to read-
vertise the contract.
SEPTEMBER
City fills a long vacant posi-
tion and hires Keven Klopp
to be CRA/Economic De-
velopment Manager. Klopp,
40, has a full plate tackling a
new sign ordinance designed
to stimulate business, pier
renovations and the Hillsboro
Streetscape in his first few
days in the office.
OCTOBER
The plight of residents of
Ventnor B in Century Vil-
lage East becomes public
again four years after a fire
destroyed their homes. A Peli-
can newspaper story detailed
the obstacles the homeown-
ers face in their rebuilding
efforts, obstacles that include
being underinsured by CVE
management, firewalls com-
promised when TV cable was
installed and tougher build-
ing codes. A local deli owner
holds a benefit day in Decem-
ber to bring more attention to
their plight.
"I am angry, but I will use
my anger to get where we
need to be ... I have a contact
for Michael Moore and I plan
on writing Oprah," said Faye
Adam, Ventnor B President,
who is seeking any and all


resources to help resolve the
homeowners' problems.
"Here's an opportunity to
help our elderly who worked
all their lives, who were our
greatest generation," said Eric
Brinkman, deli owner who
held a fundraiser for Ventnor
B building fund.
The second time around,
more pier bidders turn up
and after a voting process
which confuses some com-
missioners, Brian and Gail
Handleman, former race track
concessionaires from Mary-
land, win the contract. They
open for business in mid-De-
cember.
The commission reconsid-
ers a ban on beach fishing and
decides not to install red light
cameras hoping state legisla-
tors will pass a state statute
that may avoid lawsuits.
The local Police Athletic
League gets a boost from the
Dart Foundation to bring in a
new boxing program that ad-
dresses anger management in
young teens.
NOVEMBER
Mayor Noland and Vice
Mayor Poitier have words
when Poitier says she wants to
name the DB Aquatic Center
after Parks and Recreation
Director Vince Kendrick.
Noland said it was the lack
of pool facilities that got her
into politics and she lobbied
for years to get grant money
to build the championship
aquatic center.
"Vince will tell you this is
my baby," Noland suggesting
the pool be named for herself.

deputy chief of the Volunteer
Fire Department or VFD.
McIntee said he won by a
strong majority in a closed
ballot election of members
Jan. 12. Robert Perkins was
re-elected fire chief.
McIntee wrote to the state
Commission on Ethics in
December for "an ethics opin-
ion" on his being both VFD
deputy chief and vice mayor.
In his letter, he said he re-
ceives no compensation from
the VFD and would not re-
ceive compensation as deputy
chief. He said he has nothing
to do with corporate decisions
or spending funds.
In a response, Vinlindia
Doss, commission deputy
executive director, wrote that
for a conflict to exist "it must
be determined whether you
have a contractual or employ-
ment relationship with the
VFD. In the absence of such
a relationship, there can be no
violation. Refusal to accept
compensation... would negate
the element of employment
and therefore the potential
of prohibited conflict," Doss
wrote.
After hearing from unhappy
residents, commissioners
reversed two earlier decisions
to appease boat owners and
tennis players.
Tennis players packed Jarvis
Hall Jan. 27 to plead with
commissioners not to make
them share the town's two
tennis courts with non-resi-
dents.
Commissioners unani-
mously agreed to overturn an
ordinance to open the courts
just west of town hall to non-
residents.
Commissioners also voted
4 to 1, Birute Clottey dissent-
ing, to overturn their earlier
decision and allow boats in
Bel Air and Terra Mar. Rights
to have the boat would not be
transferable.

funds.
Other new phrases became
part of the 2009 vocabulary
like "upside-down"
[mortgage client owes more
than the property is worth]
and "short sale" [sale of a
property where the bank has
agreed to accept less than the
full mortgage as a payoff].
Commercial business
owners were equally buffeted
by the Wall Street winds.
Walden Books, corer
of East Atlantic and U.S.
Federal Highway, fell, and
before long it was a domino
spectator sport that included a
Ford dealership, Flaming Pit
Restaurant, Mack's Groves
and more. The landscape
of closures was filled with
small business owners, caught
in the economic crisis that
tightened business loans
like a hangman's noose,
leaving business owners who
were small enough to fail
[antonym of too big to fail],
dropping from sight.
This year, WCI Plaza at
Oceanside, the 17-story
luxury.condominium, fell to
the same beat of the economic
drums, declaring bankruptcy
at mid-year. Of the 186 .
condominium units developed
on the corer of A1A and
East Atlantic Boulevard, only
48 were sold. Hollywood
developer Ari Pearl bought
the remaining 138 and the
24,000 square feet of retail
space for $38.5 million.
Best laid plans ...
Pompano Beach has one of
the finest sand replenishing
programs in the state of
Florida. The Hillsboro Beach
Inlet Board of Commissioners
can take the bow for that one.
For years, as some beaches
on the South Florida coast
shrank in size, Pompano
Beach maintained a healthy
beach due to submerged pipes
that pump sand caught on the
north side of the Hillsboro
Inlet to the south side.
But 2009 was the year the
pumping ceased after two
steel-belted tires clogged
the pipe, giving the ocean a
few months of sand swiping.
The tires had been part of
an artificial reef made up of
more than 70,000 tires, all
of which wreaked havoc up
and down the coast when the
strapping's broke and sent the
wheelies all over the ocean.

City Manager's honey-
moon commission takes
a tumble
In January residents began
a verbal pounding of City
Manager Keith Chadwell,
who had only begun his
second year at the helm of
the city. Residents accused


Chadwell of "lying' on his
resume and leaving out his
own foreclosure. The heat
kept getting hotter with
Commissioner Rex Hardin a
few weeks later calling for the
city manager's resignation.
But a split vote saved
Chadwell's job for a few more


months. Then by May, there
was little to salvage from
the relationship. Chadwell
offered to resign and walk
away from the city provided
the commission give him a
$140,000 agreement package.

In return Chadwell agreed not

Assistant City Manager
Phyllis Korab served in
Chadwell's stead up until

After the death of long-time

campaigns for Larkins seat.
Woodrow Poitier, or Woody,

NEW WORD -
REVERTER CLAUSE

Pompano Beach Commissioner Barry Dockswell was caught in the feeding frenzy last year. The Pompano Beach Seafood

Boulevard overlooking the

ended up to be wrong after
activists persisted in pressing
local commissioners to walk
away from the pending
contract. But it was an
election that brought in new
commissioners four years ago
who won on the platform to
kill the deal.
The contract was pulled
from the table which led
Swerdlow to file a massive
law suit against the city. It
took more than four years, but
the city took the win. Then
the return to the drawing
board brought more ideas


for beachfront restaurants on
the city parking lots. Just as
another design was brought
forth, city attorneys realized
that the land, which had
been donated to the city had
"reverter" clauses, meaning
that if the land were used for
commercial enterprises, the
land would revert to the heirs
of the original donors.
The proverbial drawing
board was heavy with use
when it came to the beach
parking lots. Yet, the latest

original plans into a different
configuration to avoid the
"reverter" land.
But it wasn't to be.
When the city hired RMA,
a local firm to oversee
redevelopment on both sides
of the city, the latest plans
for a beachside restaurant
went down the tubes. The
new directors and some
city commissioners began
to question the financial
capabilities of the developers,
leaving the sand still free of
construction. But for those
who want nothing on the
beach except what's left of
Mother Nature's design, don't


hold your breath. Letters of
proposals for the property
will soon be in the mail to get
things shaking on the beach.
Construction had a hard
time in Pompano Beach.
They call it a CEHDA but
few people agree on what the
letters meant.
Ortanique, an affordable
housing project lost its luster
after home-owners began
to complain about garages
that were too short for their
cars, cabinets that hung
precariously from walls, leaks
and long-term mortgages
that did not include the land
upon which the houses sat.
Community Redevelopment,
or CRA funds were used to
purchase the land which was


given to the developers to
allow for affordable costs.
But not everyone got the
message. The homes were
supposed to meet a percentage
requirement for purchasers
whose income was less than
the national average. But an
audit showed that the majority
of the homes were purchased
by people in a higher income.
The flaws in the development
were brought to light by
NAACP President Willie


Lawson, whose continued
pounding led to the dismissal
of the CEHDA that had
overseen the development.
Now RMA is looking for a
new developer to finish up
the dozen or more homes that
never got built.
But despite the gafs and
goofs of the city, residents
always came together in high
spirits to the Annual Seafood
Festival, sponsored by the
Pompano Beach Chamber of


Commerce. Wise people have
learned that stuffing one's
face with crawfish, fried
shrimp, corn, alligator tid-
bits and washing it all down
with icy beer while burning
the skin the 100-degree heat
calms the savage beast within
us all.
2010 offers hope... Is
this the time we add the final
phrase "Guarded Hope?"

In 2009: Shoreline erosion and how to fix it


dominated the news in Hillsboro Beach


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Sand and how to replace
it was the story in Hillsboro
Beach in 2009. It began last
January when raging north
easterlies took big chunks
of property at The Overlook
Condominium. The headlines
continued throughout 2009
as residents demanded city
officials restore the north end
beaches and then spent a good
deal of time arguing over
how such a project would be
financed.
"Four years ago I was here
and we were losing beach. We
were losing beach two years
ago. You dropped the ball,"
said John Shaw, addressing
the commission.
"You're unfair. I am


While seniors can expect some age-
related changes in their teeth and gums,
certain changes should not be
overlooked. For example, it's natural for
teeth to darken and show signs of wear
as we age. Aging gums are also likely to
recede, which has given rise to the
phrase "long in the tooth." As a
consequence, dental cavities closer to
the root of the tooth are more likely to
occur. However, neither tooth decay nor
tooth loss should be accepted as a
normal part of the aging process.
Bleeding gums is a sign of gum disease,
which is the leading cause of tooth loss
among seniors and should be quickly
addressed. With proper treatment,
seniors can expect to retain their teeth.
Preserving teeth is an important

constantly on this issue,"
said Hillsboro Beach Mayor
Carmen McGarry in response.
Paying for the $4 million
to $7 million project with
ad valorum taxes was
considered and rejected when
single-family homeowners
protested. Then a ruckus
arose when another plan
placed the burden on condo
owners. An ad hoc committee
said it would come up with a
solution and then disagreed
and disbanded.
"This project could cost
single-family homeowners up
to $50,000 for a nourishment
with doubtful benefit,"
said former mayor Chuck
Sussman.
At one point, when Mother
Nature had restored some of
the lost sand, Mayor McGarry


consideration for all of us. You'll greatly
reduce your risk of dental disease if you
have regular checkups and practice
meticulous home care. At the practice of
Dr. HUTCHISON, we're currently
accepting new patients and welcome
your call to schedule an appointment.
Our professional, friendly staff helps
ensure that all patients' dentistry needs
are met, and that you're comfortable
throughout your visit, and informed as
well. We are providers of Botox and
Juvederm.

P.S. Dry mouth is another common
problem among seniors, which can lead
to tooth decay and should be brought to
the attention of the dentist.

seemed to agree with Sussman.
Faced with budget deficits,
McGarry said she feared the
costly project would be "a
disservice in these economic
times." But the winds shifted
and residents again demanded
beach restoration.
At year end, a consultant
presented an assessment
formula that seemed fair to
both homeowners' groups. The
project will be financed over
10 years and the payout, about
$7,000 for the largest mansion
on the island and about $2,400
for the average condominium,
became insignificant when
residents were confronted by
the fact permits might not be
issued in time to do the project
in early 2010.
"We're arguing about
peanuts. Let's cut the bickering
and get it done!" Hillsboro
resident.
The 360,000 cubic yards
of beach must be in place by
March or April in order not to
impact nesting sea turtles.
Another huge consideration
is the availability of a dredge
that will be pumping sand onto
Boca's south beach at that


time. The use of that dredge
saves big dollars.
Another beach erosion
project was also in the news
this year. The Pressure
Equalizing Modules (PEMs)
installed in 2008 came
up for review as to their
effectiveness. The devices
were placed beneath the
sand on the north beach as
an experiment. Successful
in accreting sand in
Scandinavian countries, it
was the first time the units
had been installed in the U.S.
and the results were eagerly
awaited.
Two studies have shown
that sand is accreting in
the test area, but town
commissioners, faced with
the cost of beach nourishment
and rebuilding an aging water
plant, voted in December to
have EcoShore International
remove the PEMs. Coastal
engineer John Studt said the
PEMs were also a negative
factor in the permitting for
the nourishment project.
The commission voted not
to renew the contract with
EcoShore despite Dr. Ken


Christensen's offer to reduce
the annual lease fee from
$150,000 to $40,000.
"We were wise to give
it a try. It's time to move
forward." Hillsboro Vice
Mayor Dan Dodge, addressing
the PEM issue.
"It's premature to cancel. In
the spring, it will be obvious
whether it is working or not."
Hillsboro Commissioner Tom
Puleri.
The town continued to
have problems finding a city
clerk that would stay on the
job. Dana Williams, hired in
January, resigned in July after
receiving a critical review
from the commission. Her
replacement, Jean Marie
Mark, who was the clerk in
Juno Beach, begins work this
month. Since David Denmen,
the town clerk for 16 years,
left the city four years ago, at
least half a dozen clerks have
been hired only to be fired, or
to resign.
In March, Carmen McGarry
and Dan Dodge were
reelected and Lee Bennett

Hillsboro
Continued from page 21
won the seat vacated by Alan
Polin. The commission chose
McGarry to wield the gavel
for another year.
Police Chief Tom Nagy got
the town its first accredited
police force. Early in 2009,
Nagy assigned Sgt. Jay
Szesnet the task of bringing all
the department's procedures in
line with state statutes. Nagy


also reached out to other law
enforcement agencies to get
his men additional training.
In September, faced with a
budget deficit, commissioners
eliminated the position of full
time finance director, reduced
the days the free shuttle bus
service will operate, raised the
millage from 2.61 mils to 3.39
mils and transferred $80,000
from the water fund to come
up with a balanced document
for 2009-10.


Of great concern was the
cost of fire/rescue service,
$815,000 for 2010, paid to
the Deerfield Beach Fire
Department to cover the
Hillsboro Mile. Mayor Carmen
McGarry suggested the town
"shop the contract" when it
expires in October. The biggest
bump in this year's contract
was adjusted by $125,000
when Deerfield Beach dropped
a proposed $50 per unit
increase in the fire fee. Still,
the City of Pompano Beach
was contacted about providing
fire/rescue service in the
future.
As renovations to the water
plant are approved, residents
can expect small increases in
their water bills. The plant is
due for a $4.2 million rebuild
in three phases. Phase I, $1.5
million for the most critical
needs, will be done in 2010.
Assuming the town gets
approvals for its beach
nourishment and that the
assessment method is certified
by the state, the good news
in 2010 will be a new beach
and the fact that the residents
could finally agree on getting a
difficult job done.

LBTS
Continued from page 14
reversed earlier decisions for
the third time and decided
to allow only residents who
had a boat at the time of
annexation to keep their boat
on a trailer in their driveways
in those two communities.
Commissioners agreed by
a 3 to 2 vote at their Feb. 24
meeting to pass an ordinance
on first reading to change
regulations on the storage of
vessels on properties annexed
into the town in 2001.
Mayor Roseann Minnet and
Commissioner Birute Clottey
dissented.
MARCH
Commissioners in
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
unanimously passed a vote
of confidence in the town
manager at their March 11
meeting.
But that vote came after
the manager lashed out at


one commissioner that if
he wanted to terminate her
contract, he should go ahead
and "get it over with."
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee
placed the item on the agenda
because he said, "Esther
Colon (the manager) and her
staff were being abused."
Mclntee said the town
manager deserves a pat on the
back. "We all love you. The
citizens love you," he said to
Colon.
During the March 10
commission meeting, 29
people signed up to speak
during public comments.
Nineteen were members of the
Citizens Initiative Committee,
all lauding the work of Colon.
APRIL
The beach pavilion in
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea was
officially opened and blessed
during ceremonies April 6 at
the eastern end of Commercial
Boulevard.
Rev. George Hunsaker, town


chaplain, invited the crowd to
"look to the east and see the
beauty God has created." He
noted that tourists travel to
see what many local residents
take for granted.
The pavilion cost $380,000.
Funding included $176,000
from the Broward County
2000 Safe Parks & Land
Preservation bond program.
On hand was Edwin Forbes,
the Art Institute of Fort
Lauderdale graduate, winner
of a design competition for
the pavilion.
MAY
The town of Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea received notice
in mid-May it is the subject of
four Bert J. Harris lawsuits,
totaling $19.19 million.
"Each of the clients are
property owners severely
impacted by the town's
actions when the town
decreased height limits for
buildings from 15 stories
to three stories of living

space over one story for
parking," said Beth-Ann
Krimsky, attorney with
Ruden McClosky, who is
representing the claimants.
The claimants and the
amounts they say they lost
in value with the change are
Palm Yacht and Beach Club,
about $2.7 million; Coastal
Arms, about $4.8 million; El
Dorado, about 5.1 million;
and James Edmondson, $8.3
million. The Edmondson
property is where the Sea


Watch Restaurant is located.
JUNE
Unhappy residents
jammed Jarvis Hall for a
special meeting of the Town
Commission June 30, called
to discuss the ousting of Chief
Scott Gooding of the Broward
Sheriff's Office.
The majority of speakers
praised the chief, lambasted
the town manager for the
decision, and urged the
commission to bring the chief

how unhappy he was with
her cutbacks in plans for
renovations in BSO's portion
of the town's new public
safety building, a former
motel.
He asked for $424,000 in
renovations with $284,000
coming from forfeiture
money. Colon scaled plans
back to only a holding cell
and sally port.
In explaining her
decision, Colon called his
recommendations "fiscally
irresponsible."
Col. Ed Werder, who has
charge of law enforcement
for BSO, cited Gooding's
credentials and said, "A
career is a terrible thing
to waste, especially when
it's not yours. To have his
reputation diminished by
saying he was financially
irresponsible is unfair and
unjust. I don't know where
this came from."
In August, Oscar Llerena
was named chief, replacing
Gooding. Previously, Llerena
was watch commander/patrol
captain with BSO. Gooding is
now doing that job.
OCTOBER
The third time was the
charm, with commissioners
finally managing to complete
an evaluation of Town
Manager Esther Colon.
They evaluated the manager
on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being
the highest score.
Colon scored high with


three of five commission
members with Mayor Roseann
Minnet and Commissioner
Stuart Dodd giving her the
lowest scores.
Commissioner Jim Silverstone
gave Colon high marks
and an overall grade of 5.
Commissioner Birute Clottey
scored her a 4+. Vice Mayor
Jerry Mclntee refused to fill out
the forms but said he would rate
Colon a five in every category.
NOVEMBER
The Unite Our Town board of
directors announced its selection
of
candidates for Town
Commission Nov. 16.
The nine-member board
voted in secret balloting, and
candidates chosen are Chris
Vincent in the south and Scot
Sasser in the north, Chuck
Clark, board member and
former town commissioner,
announced to UOT supporters.
"Though the stakes are high
and the issues are many, our
focus will be myopic and our
solution simple. It really comes
down to integrity, honesty, trust,
transparency and accountability
in our town government,"
Sasser said.
Vincent said residents need
to be able to trust their local
government. He wants to
eliminate any negativity that
has taken over in the town. "We
don't need bullies on the dais
dictating their wants and needs."

Commissioners agreed Dec.

8 to move forward with
appropriating $980,000 to
get started on the El Mar
Drive streetscape project.
The vote was 3 to 2
with Minnet and Dodd
voting "absolutely no" and
"absolutely not."
Vice Mayor Jerry
McIntee, who put the item
on the agenda, said the
commission had discussed
the matter for nearly
two years, had multiple
meetings and multiple
schematics. "It's time to go
forward. Let's get it done,
get it moving and hope for
the best. It's money well
spent," he said.
The Volunteer Fire
Department re-elected
Robert Perkins as chief
during the yearly election
Dec. 14.
Perkins defeated Jerry
Mclntee, deputy chief and
town vice mayor, in the
secret balloting.
Thirty in-town members
of the department were the
only ones allowed to vote.
McIntee threw his name
in the race the last day
nominations had to be
turned in, Perkins said.
"He blindsided us all and
disappointed all of us" with
that move, Perkins said.
Joe Padden, 56, a VFD
member since 1991, was
elected deputy chief,
replacing Mclntee. Padden's
22-year-old son Kevin was
elected battalion chief.
