City can't regulate smoking outdoors, but signs banning it may be OK


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach The city
is not able to regulate smok-
ing on its public beaches, the
commission learned Tuesday
night.
A state statue regulates
the issue and preempts local
attempts to ban smoking in
outdoor areas. The matter had
been on the board's agenda
for a month after resident
Caryl Berner asked that a por-


tion of the beach be set aside
for non-smokers. Although
'no-smoking' signs may exist
in parks and other open public
places, according to the city
attorney's office, the ban can-
not be enforced.
Mayor Peggy Noland said,
"We could just put up 'no-
smoking' signs. I know we
have no enforcement power,
but when I see a sign, I don't
smoke."
Commissioner Joe Miller
expressed regret at the situa-


tion saying, "Some people are
very allergic to smoke."
Noland said, "Boca has
signs. Let's see how they do
it."
Sharon Cruz from City At-
torney Andy Maurodis' office
said she would look into the
situation in Boca Raton.
The commission had been
considering an ordinance that
would ban smoking on a small
section of the south beach and
was trying to set boundaries
on the new rule.


Stalled beach project
can now go forward
In hopes of moving a
defunct commercial project
along, Deerfield Beach City
Commissioners have ap-
proved an ordinance which
gives a 12-month extension
to the existing site plan. Land
use attorney David Sacks said
the amended ordinance would
allow the bank to sell the
building, described by beach
resident Rita Masi as "a white


elephant." The two-story
structure at 1197 NE 2 St. is
a 9,284 square-foot building
with ground floor commercial
space.and three, second-floor
dwelling units. Construction
stopped more than a year ago
and the property went into
foreclosure. Sachs said there
is a buyer for the building.
Mayor Peggy Noland voted
for the amendment but said in
her mind it gives the bank the
leverage to get more money
for the building.

Oakland Park gives approval for new Pastorius mural MINRA,


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Oakland Park Commis-
sioners gave the go-ahead to
Oakland Park Main Street to
proceed with plans for a new
mural and brick program at
Jaco Pastorius Park.
The vote was 3 to 2 at
Wednesday's commission
meeting, Commissioners
Anne Sallee and Suzanne
Boisvenue dissenting.
Fort Lauderdale artist Bill
Savarese was selected to paint
the murals on the south and
east walls of the community
center. Bricks will be installed
in increments of 250 to blend
into the mural as they are
sold.
Savarese is ah experienced


mural artist, who began his
work in Copenhagen work-
ing with a group of artists.
"I'm excited about doing this
project," he said. Both murals
include portraits of Pastorius
that were once album covers.
Work on the project is
expected to begin March 1
and be completed by June 1 at
an estimated cost of $17,500,
including $5,000 already bud-
geted by the city.
Oakland Park Main Street
will develop a brochure about


the project and hire Bricks R
Us for commemorative brick
purchases. Bricks will be sold
for $50 each.
Boisvenue said she had
received e-mails from some
residents who thought the
proposed murals had too
much darkness and looked
scary. She added that she likes
the idea of having a mural but
"I don't think this is the right
piece for that wall."

Niedwiecki said the commis-

LBTS Jarvis Hall was
filled to near capacity Tues-
day evening for the first of
two candidate forums in Lau-
derdale-By-The-Sea.
Six candidates running for
two commission seats and


mayor in the March 9 election
fielded questions posed by
moderator Carol Smith of the
League of Women Voters.
Evans vs. Sasser
Political newcomers Mar-
jorie Evans and Scot Sasser
are vying for the commission
seat in District 1. Vice Mayor

Medication Problems and the Elderly.
Medication errors are common in the elderly. Many seniors take on average 6- 8
different prescriptions as well as over the counter drugs. Many times the elderly will
not go back to their doctor to have their dosage evaluated & changed if necessary.
Even though children want to help increase the health & stamina of their parents, they
may in fact be causing damage by misdirecting their loved ones.

election. Evans said she will
try to protect taxpayers from a
tax increase and aggressively
pursue public funds and funds
from private foundations. She
is for limiting building heights
based on current codes and
keeping the current public
safety providers.
Sasser said that as he has
met with residents, he's been
hearing it's time for a change.
He said he
would re-
turn a sense
of profes- *.
sionalism. L '"
dignity and v
ethics to

ernment. .' H
With his
experience EVANS
in business,
he said he knows the value of
strategic planning.
Sasser said he will promote
a code of ethics, work for a
strategic plan for the town and
aim to strike a good balance
between budget, expenses and
capital improvements.
Evans said she would like to
see two ordinances changed
so sidewalk cafes and bed
and breakfast establishments
would be allowed in town.
She wants to see the town ap-
ply for federal stimulus funds
and look into the Neighbor-
hood Stabilization Program to
restore foreclosures.
Both candidates said they
support the commission hav-
ing an ethics code. Sasser
said a commissioner or mayor
should recuse himself from
voting on issues involving a
town vendor he's affiliated
with.
Asked about decorum on
the dais, Sasser said it's im-
portant an example be set on
the dais. "We have too much
divisiveness. I will bring
professionalism and respect up
here."
Evans said the problem is
not only on the dais. She said
freedom involves responsibili-
ty, and responsibility involves
listening to other people. She
said some use the guise of
freedom of speech to intimi-

date people. "Half the people
I meet are afraid to come to
the meetings," she said.
Asked what he would do to
support the business com-
munity, Sasser said he would
continue to allow special
events in town and embrace
the business community. "We
need to open our arms more
to the Chamber of Commerce
and listen to their ideas," he
said. Evans said she would
promote sidewalk cafes and
outdoor activities.
Vincent vs. Silverstone
In District 2, incumbent Jim
Silverstone is up against po-
litical newcomer Christopher
Vincent. As the owner of a
contracting company, Vincent
said he knows how to budget,
cut costs and make ends meet.
He favors strong public safety,
a defined code of ethics,
transpar-
ency in






says the S
promises
he made
four years SILVERSTONE
ago were
promises kept. He fought hard
to get the Volunteer Fire De-
partment back, pursued more
transparency by getting more
town information online,
pushed for a beach patrol and
worked to reduce taxes and
the fire assessment.
Asked if they support a code
of ethics, Silverstone said he
supports ethics, but nothing
has been presented that's clear
and concise and does more
than the state already does.
Vincent said he takes a com-
mon sense approach. He says
commissioners should recuse
themselves from voting on
issues involving any vendor
they're affiliated with.
Both candidates said they
support existing height limits
and noted that only the people
can change them, not the
commission.
How would they provide
transparency with budget
details? Vincent said the town
should provide a monthly fi-
nancial statement. Silverstone
said he worked to have key
budget information available
online.
The candidates disagreed on
the wisdom of the town pur-
chase of a motel for a public
safety building. Vincent said
the motel should not have
been purchased. Silverstone
said the space was needed.
When the Broward Sheriff's
Office contract is up for
renewal, do they support
renewal or going with the


town's own department?
Vincent said the commis-
sion should look at negotiat-
ing any new contract, but he
won't jeopardize public safety
to save a few dollars. Silver-
stone said he supports BSO,
but the commission shouldn't
hesitate to take other bids.
"BSO should stay if they're
reasonable," he said.
Minnet vs. Couriel
Incumbent Mayor Rose-
ann Minnet faces challenger
Joseph Couriel for mayor.
Minnet said she brought a
sense of respect and dignity to
the mayoral seat and kept her
messages distinct.
She voted no for the $1.7
million hotel for public safety,
no for additional commission
compensation, cellphones and
insurance. She voted yes for
the VFD contract.
Couriel said he would like
to improve the ambiance
on Commercial Boulevard
with more outdoor dining.
He wants
to be sure
residential
areas have
proper
drainage.
He wants to
keep taxes
low and
property
values high. MINNET

sion meetings have descended
into chaos with residents fear-
ing for their safety," he said.
"Jarvis Hall is your house.
You shouldn't be afraid to
come here."
Couriel said his vision for
the town is to establish the
wow factor, to improve the
appearance of residences and
business.
Minnet said her vision
would be shorter meetings
devoted to town business and
not personal agendas. She said
beach portals need to be main-
tained and the drainage study
addressed to determine what
areas need to be dealt with.
Asked about conflicts of
interest and when commis-
sioners should recuse them-
selves from voting, Minnet
said the town needs a clear,
concise ethics code. "If com-
missioners are affiliated with
a vendor, they need to recuse
themselves."
Couriel said there is no need
for commissioners who are
VFD members
to recuse themselves. "The
VFD is the soul and fabric of
this town. They need to par-
ticipate. They aren't making
money. They're volunteers."
How can decorum and
respect be improved?
"It starts with leadership
from the chair, and that has
never happened in the last two
years," Couriel said. "There

Deerfield Beach's Mona Lisa Restaurant brings authen-


tic New York style thin crust pizza to


By Malcolm McClintock


S PELICAN WRITER
Steps away from the Deerfield
Beach Pier, Mona Lisa pizza has
established itself as the premier
provider of top-notch thin crust pies
and Italian sandwiches.
Owners Teresa and Steven, fourth
generation pizza purveyors from
Brooklyn, have been dazzling resi-
dents and visitors alike with their
New York specialties.
"We opened about a year ago and
have gotten a wonderful response
from our customers," says Teresa.
The restaurant has a large outdoor
patio with a Tiki bar. Indoor dining
area has a mobster-inspired d6cor
and an impressive coal fire oven.
The menu features tantalizing ap-
petizers: plump and juicy coal oven
chicken wings with saut6ed onions
and blue cheese or a flavorful cap-
rese salad loaded with freshly made
mozzarella and basil.
The garlic saut6ed broccoli rabe
overflows with homemade sausage
chunks. "All our meats are ground
and prepared on site," says Teresa.
The Da Vinci salad comes with aru-
gula, romaine lettuce, gorgonzola
cheese, tomatoes, red onions, olives,
garbanzo beans and walnuts with
raspberry vinaigrette.
Share is the antipasto platter with
its array of soppresatta, cappicolla,
prosciutto, imported provolone,
roasted red pepper, artichoke hearts
and kalamata olives. One highlight
at Mona Lisa's is its thin crust piz-
zas. "Every pizza starts as either a
Margarita or a Bianco," says Teresa
"then you build it as you like."
Both tomato-based and white
versions are prepared with fresh
cheeses, olive oil and basil. The
toppings include Portobello mush-
rooms, pesto, sun-dried tomatoes,
artichoke hearts, prosciutto and
meatballs.
Artfully spun and attentively
baked in a piping hot coal oven,
these crispy pizzas are thoroughly
enjoyable. Die-hard deep dish lov-
ers will struggle to find fault with
these beautifully balanced pies.
And Mona Lisa offers freshly


prepared sandwiches, served hot
on homemade breads. Soppresatta,
grilled chicken and roasted turkey
are among the choices to pair with a
pesto or sundried spread.
Italian and Californian wines will
complement any meal. Glasses start
at $4.95 during the day, $6.25 at
night. Bottles begin at $23. Mona
Lisa is a fabulous place to linger
for dessert and coffee. There is live
music on the weekends.
"We also specialize in pastries and
desserts. In fact, we brought our own
pastry chef from NY," says Teresa.
"The cheesecake with chocolate
ganache is my favorite."
But don't overlook the canno-
lii. eclairs. Napoleons. Ttrarrsu.
chocolate mousses ano %arious other

delectable treats.
Pizzas start at $9.50 [small] and
$13.95 [large] at lunchtime. Add
a couple of dollars in the evening.
Sandwiches are in the $7 range.
"The pizza here is really excel-
lent," says John Degrottoli, a visi-
tor from the Empire State. "Qual-
ity is the most important thing to
us," says Teresa who enjoys the
help of her children in the running
of the family business. "We also
have a wonderful staff that has
been with us from the start."
The word is getting out that
Mona Lisa is a special place for
tasty Italian fare. Buon appetite!

Saving tax dollars is good, but

some things are worth the cost

By Michael d'Oliveira

PELICAN STAFF
Whenever government looks for ways to save tax dollars, it's almost always
a good thing. But when it comes to changing the rules for appointing interim
commissioners in Wilton Manors, saving tax dollars is not a good thing.
Democracy isn't easy and it isn't cheap. But the City of Wilton Manors
deserves a commission comprised entirely of officials elected by the people. In
2008, with two years left in his term, Mayor Gary Resnick, then commissioner,
resigned to run for mayor. Commissioner Scott Newton won the special election
and is serving out the rest of Resnick's original term.
That election cost the city over $20,000 and is what ultimately led to commis-
sioners to discuss a possible rule change to save the city from having to pay for
a special election in the future.
At their Feb. 5 meeting, commissioners discussed possibly changing the
ordinance to allow them to appoint an interim commissioner to serve, by some
suggestions, up to a year. Once that person is appointed, residents would have
a chance to vote on the seat at the next election involving the entire city; which
commissioners determined would probably be a county election to choose
judges.
Currently, the City of Wilton Manors' ordinances state, "If there is more
than six months remaining in the unexpired term and no regular city election is
scheduled within six months, the city commission shall fill the vacancy on an
interim basis."
With all of the important projects this city commission has voted on recently
- including the new city hall, the rejected public/private partnership proposal,
the compromise regarding the substantial-impact fees owed by Wilton Station
developers, the approval of the "G Resorts Hotel" and the recently finished Wil-
ton Park rental/retail development do commissioners really want to appoint an
unelected representative to office for an entire year?
Organizing a special election takes time and someone has to serve until voters
are ready to decide who should represent them. Without a fifth vote, commis-
sioners could get deadlocked, and nothing would get done.
Interim commissioners serve a necessary function and the city was lucky
enough to have an intelligent and passionate person, Julie Carson, serve as its
last interim commissioner. But what if next time the city isn't so lucky? What
if the next interim commissioner, serving longer than six months, casts a vote
costing the city hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars?
These are risks residents have to worry about when they enter the voting
booth but an appointed commissioner, staying longer than they should be al-
lowed and casting a costly vote, is something voters should never have to worry
about.
The cost of a special election is an insurance policy that ensures residents get
their full representation as fast as is reasonably possible. Saving tax dollars is
good, but some things are worth the cost.


Letters to the Editor

Local pastor says The Pelican wrongly

stated his position regarding Muslims

Dear Editor,
Thank you for the opportunity to correct an incorrect statement that was
printed inyour newspaper on Friday, February 12, 2010. In that issue of your
paper, you wrote "If you are of the Muslim faith, you can't help but be radical,"
Dozier said, citing passages in the Quran and Hadith. I never made such a state-
ment nor is this statement representative of my belief.
I would never make a statement like that.
Such a statement like that is absurd and incorrect because I believe that there
are many Muslims who have never read the Quran or the Hadith and many who
have do not take the scriptures of these Islamic books literally and act on them.
On the other hand, I believe that those Muslims who do take the scriptures of
these Islamic books literally and act on them become radicals and jihadists or
supporters of radicals and jihadists. This is why I do not believe that all Mus-
lims are radicals.
I have friends who are Muslims and they are not radicals. I believe that the
Muslim people are beautiful people who are victims of a very dangerous and
evil cult (Islam) that is rooted in the Quran and Hadith and other books of the
Islamic faith.
I conclude by saying that God loves the Muslim people and so do I. My
prayer is that they would come out of Islam and give their hearts to the one and
only true and living God, Yahweh, Jehovah, and the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank
you for the opportunity to correct the incorrect statement printed by your news-
paper.
Sincerely,
Dr. O'Neal Dozier, Pastor




Step away from the drama and

discover your role in the situation


Dear Debbie,
I keep getting myself into bad situations. I feel like a
failure. What should I do?
Bad in Lighthouse Point

Dear Bad,
The first thing to do is to detach from the present
negative situation. You are measuring yourself as good
or bad based on this event.
In reality what is happening is separate from you. It
is happening in your sphere of existence but does not
define your life.
For example, if your boss fires you for no reason it
has altered the situation in your life but the essence of
your life remains the same. You can still find another
job, learn from the experience and possibly be in a bet-
ter place.
Choose to step out the drama. Instead of focusing on
the details of your situation, rather look for patterns. A
pattern is something that keeps reoccurring in your life.
It keeps repeating until you either learn from it or break
the pattern. If you take the time to sit silently and look
inside you may see where it stems from.
Uncovering your pattern and knowing that your situa-
tion doesn't define who you are gives you the power to
choose. It also helps you see the lessons in the situation
so you can heal past wounds.

You are faced with this situation for a reason. A mantra that you can tell your-
self throughout this process that may help is: You can handle the situation. It is
a growth opportunity, and there is a reason for this to occur exactly as it is. Say
these things to yourself whenever you feel stressed. It will help you find the in-
ner strength to handle the situation. Once you get through this situation you will
become a stronger and more aware individual.

Purim, happiest festival in Jewish year, recalls Queen

Esther, her courageous father and Jew-hating vizier


THE JEWISH CENTER AT
TEMPLE SHOLOM OF POMPANO
BEACH
As winter slowly creeps into
spring in most of the country,
the Jewish community plans
its celebration of Purim,
Hebrew for "lots," which is
based on the Biblical book of
Esther.
The story, which takes place
in Persia around 484-464
Before the Common Era, or
BCE, has all the elements of
an Arabian Nights tale: the
foolish tippling King Achash-
vayrosh, his beautiful Jewish
Queen Esther, a Jew-hating
vizier, Haman, and Esther's
adoptive father who saves the
day, Mordechai.
Unlike the Chanukah
story, whose Seleucid vil-
lains wished to destroy the
Jewish faith, Haman, the first
anti-semite in history, plot-
ted to annihilate the Jewish
people-for no apparent
reason, other than their very
existence.
The name Purim derives
from the lots which Haman
threw in order to determine
the fateful day on which to at-
tack the Jews, who presented
no obstacle to him or his
political ambitions.
The story is unique among
the books of the Jewish Bible
for not featuring God as a
character-God works from
behind the scenes, in a man-
ner more akin to real life.

Because all of the characters
in the story mask their true
identities to greater or lesser
extent-Achashvayrosh, an
incompetent ruler, pretends to
be a forceful monarch; Esther
hides her Jewishness until the
opportune moment; Haman
cloaks his Jew-hatred beneath
a veil of political expediency,
and only Mordechai follows


an ethical path, from start to
finish-Purim has become
the time of year when Jew-
ish children and adults play
dress-up, masquerading as
their favorite character. This
is especially evident in Israel,
where many communities
sponsor Purim parades and
other festivities.

they recommended their find-

be turned over to the U.S.
Attorney's Office.
The situation in Deerfield
Beach, Interim City Man-
ager Burgess Hanson said, is
about internal controls and
was requested by Department
Manager Peter Parkin and
Growth Management Director
Jerry Ferguson who met with
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment officials.
"We need a review by an
outside firm," Hanson said.
The commission voted to
spend up to $30,000 on the
Kessler study although Han-
son said, "We think we can
get it done for $15,000." Kes-
sler has indicated the work
can be done in two to three
weeks.
Among the matters up for
review are the finances of
the Westside Businessmen's
Association that owns and
manages 28 low-income liv-
ing units on SW 1 Street.
In March, 2009, city com-
missioners asked the asso-
ciation for a financial report,
but Dan Poitier, association
executive director, and Felecia

the invitation.

commissioners gave Interim
City Manager Burgess Han-
son five thumbs up Tuesday
night and assured him he
would be at the helm long
enough to prepare the 2010-11
budget.
Hanson, 37, went into the
manager's office in mid-Janu-
ary when Mike Mahaney was
abruptly terminated. The com-
missioners said his work since
then has been impressive.
His tenure came up as
commissioners were to pick
a search firm to find a perma-
nent replacement for Mah-
aney. But the focus of that
agenda item swiftly changed.
"I am very impressed with
Burgess and think we should
hold off spending money.
We might have the man right
here. I would like to give him
a chance," Commissioner Joe
Miller said.
Commissioner Bill Ganz
was on board too. "I was a
big proponent of going out


[to a search firm], but I am
more than willing to slow the
process. I am very impressed
so far. Burgess does a great
job." Noting that budget
preparations are coming up,
Ganz said, "I would like to get
through this."
Adding her praise, Mayor
Peggy Noland said, "Burgess
took off running, and he has
not skipped a beat. I'd like
him to know he is definitely
here until after the budget."
Commissioner Marty Popel-
sky was ready to offer Han-
son a four-year contract, but
Miller said "Let's review it in
three to six months. He's got
our vote of confidence. Let's
give him more time." Ganz
concurred saying, "Right now,
I am a huge fan of Burgess,
but I'm not prepared to offer a
contract tonight."
As commissioners discussed
upgrading Hanson's title to
city manager, City Attorney
Andy Maurodis said his cur-
rent designation protects his
former job, director of infor-
mation services, and should

a $15,000 water bill. A year
previously, the commission
awarded the CHODO $30,000
in public money to catch up
on its debts.
At that time, Felecia Poitier
said the rising vacancy rate
and changes in 'Section 8'
housing regulations were con-
tributing to the association's
financial troubles.
Poitier is the daughter of
Deerfield Beach Vice Mayor
Sylvia Poitier. Dan Poitier is
a relative of the vice mayor's
former husband. Tuesday
night, Felecia said she has
"no qualms" about a CHODO
review. "I have never had a
conflict. I have nothing to
hide," she said. "I am trans-
parent."
Hanson reiterated that the
review is not a criminal inves-
tigation, but concerns internal
controls.
"We are looking at how we
get to decisions and funding
which may have been misrep-
resented to the public in the
past," he said. "In the mean-
time, we may be suspending
certain operations,"
Commissioner Bill Ganz
said, "Considering the penal-
ties we could face, we need
to find out what's going on.
I've been told there are major
issues. People are being given
public money and are not
responding to us."
Said Mayor Peggy Noland,
"I feel the same way. This
has been in the background.
I applaud Burgess for bring-
ing it forward. It's long, long
overdue."

Andrew W. Kirk, Pompano Beach High

School, named Teacher of the Year finalist


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
The District will honor
the "Best of the Best" at its
Teacher of the Year 2011
event scheduled for 11:30
a.m. Friday, February 19 at
the Broward County Conven-
tion Center, 1050 Eisenhower
Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.
Andrew W. Kirk, math
teacher at Pompano Beach
High School, competes today
with five other finalists for
Broward Teacher of the Year.
The event takes place at the
Broward Convention Center
in Fort Lauderdale today.
Kirk is described as a
teacher who goes "above and
beyond to encourage student
participation through an open


KIRK


and non-threatening atmo-
sphere."
PBHS Junior Elizabeth
Blair knows a lot about Kirk's
encouragement. "Coach Kirk
is my swim coach, and he's
helping me sponsor a new
club, HANG, or Healthy Ac-
tive Nutrition Group," says
Blair. "His teaching methods


are very effective and kids
love his style." The five
finalists will receive an i-pod,
scholarships from Florida
Atlantic University and Nova
Southeastern University and
gift baskets from Office Depot
and Bright Star Credit Union.
The winner, in addition to
the gifts above, will also re-
ceive $1,000 from Bright Star
Credit Union, an Apple Mac
Pro and a Dell laptop.
Other finalists include: Bas-
ma Andre, Nova High School;
Carolyn Cerrato, Palm Cove
Elementary School; Neil
Jenkins, J. P. Taravella High
School; Allan Phipps, South
Plantation High School; and
Sharon Rapheal, Fox Trail
Elementary School.


A small group of supporters,
Linda Lennon, David Stevens,
Rene and Julie Mahfood and
Michele Green, are helping
Turner in the effort to 'Open
Your Hearts to Haiti,' the
theme of the day. In three
weeks a lot has been accom-
plished.
The Lighthouse Point Yacht
and Racquet Club is donat-
ing all of its facilities. Said
club manager Stevens, "Ten
or 12 people on our staff lost
immediate family members in
the earthquake. It was pretty
traumatic. These people are
volunteering their time Sun-
day."
Along with 'incredible
edibles' Chop's signature
lobster bisque and warm
spinach salad; Chef Oliver
Saucy's wild mushroom
pearled couscous with grilled
chicken, smoked mozzarella
and herbs there will activi-
ties available. A round-robin


tennis tournament will be held
on club courts in the morning.
The $50 registration fee
includes the brunch. A bounce
house, Happy the Clown and
demos by the Lighthouse
Point police and fire depart-
ments will entertain the kids.
Music is by deejay Eddie B
and Elvis impersonator David
Morin. Bacardi is donating all
the liquor, Turner said.
The brunch runs from noon
to 3 p.m. and a minimum
donation of $50 is suggested
with kids under age 12 free.
Donations of evaporated milk
and baby formula are encour-
aged.
Tickets can be purchased
online at www.foodforth-
epoor.org/yachtclub or from
Lennon at 954-942-7244.
Because of a U.S. House bill
passed after the earthquake,
all donations made through
February to Haitian relief are
deductible on 2009 taxes.

put in."
"We cannot satisfy every-
one. We think it's beautiful,"
said Siegi Constantine, execu-
tive director of Oakland Park
Main Street.
"We feel this artist has done
a tremendous job. This will
be a unique, signature piece
for this community. I hope
you will approve it and let us
move forward."
Several residents spoke in
favor of the murals, including
Diane Wendt, who said they
portray the dynamic vision of
Pastorius.
One resident said tax money
should instead go to clean up
the quality of life in the com-
munity. Another said funds

small businesses to move to

work.
Last year Oakland Park
Main Street contracted with
artist Frank Ciccio to paint a

was halted and painted over


when Main Street officials
weren't satisfied with its
progress
Because that project wasn't

John Stunson said a perfor-
mance bond was included in
this contract to ensure it gets
finished.

Pompano Beach Harley dealership hosts "Blessing of the Bikes"


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Motorcycle rider Rick
Dicesare says he's always had
the Lord watching over him,
but decided getting his bike
officially blessed by a local
pastor couldn't hurt.
"I've had eight or nine skids
in my life and never dumped
a bike. So God was watching
whether I had the blessing or
not."
Dicesare joined about 50 to
60 other motorcycle riders on
Feb. 6 at Bruce Rossmeyer's
Harley Davidson dealership
in Pompano Beach to have.
his Hog blessed by Pastor
Mike Griffith of the Future
and Hope Church, in Delray
Beach.


Wilton Drive
Continued from page 1

decision would still rest with
commissioners. "We have
an opportunity to really hear
from the public on this," said
Mayor Gary Resnick.
"I would listen to an over-
whelming vote more than a
divided vote," said Commis-
sioner Tom Green.
In meetings and interviews,
commissioners have unani-
mously expressed an interest
in taking control of Wilton
Drive but cost has so far
halted any moves towards a
takeover. "We didn't close the
door, we just said 'not right
now,'" said Vice Mayor Justin
Flippen.
A draft of the proposed
referendum has been cre-
ated to be placed on the Feb.
23 commission agenda. "It
reads, "Should the City of
Wilton Manors take owner-
ship, responsibility and control
of Wilton Drive from the State
of Florida from Five Points to
the southern city limit." It will
have to be presented at addi-
tional public meetings before
commissioners can cast a final
vote.
"I am very much against
putting this on the ballot at
this time. There is no way to
word this that would give the
public a positive viewpoint
on the lane reduction and
state transfer. It is unfair to
the businesses that are suffer-
ing. The voters do not have
enough information about
how we can pay for this with
parking and other funding
sources," wrote Doug Blevins,
president of Wilton Manors
Main Street, the most vocal
proponent of the takeover.
In July of 2009, City Man-
ager Joseph Gallegos, citing
cost, made a recommendation
against a takeover. If the city
were to assume control of


The "Blessing of the Bikes"
was a first for Griffith, as pre-
siding pastor, and the Harley
dealership, as event host. "I
think that everyone was pretty
appreciative," said Griffith,
who also works at the dealer-
ship as a salesman. "For our
first time, over 50 was pretty
good," said Griffith.
Tom Tremaglio, also a
salesman at the dealership,
said bike blessings are very
common. "It's about having
the most protection. This is
always a good thing," said
Tremaglio, who also got his
bike blessed. Tremaglio, who
was in an accident three years
ago that left him hospitalized
for a week, said motorcycle
accidents are "rarely the
rider's fault" because other


Wilton Drive, the Florida De-
partment of Transportation, or
FDOT, which currently con-
trols the road, estimates main-
tenance would be between
$75,000 and $85,000 per year.
FDOT says the cost of milling
and resurfacing Wilton Drive
when needed [every 15 years]
would be about $528,000. The
yearly costs include routine
maintenance as well as setting
aside a reserve to eventually
pay for resurfacing.
The city estimates the
capital costs to narrow and
reconfigure the roadway cross
section could be $2 to $4 mil-
lion.
Advocates for city control
want to reduce the number
of lanes from four to two.
They say the reduction would
make the street more safe
and pedestrian friendly, and
adding parking spaces on
Wilton Drive would increase
revenues and ultimately help
fund the takeover.
Tom Tabor, Main Street
board member and chairman
of its initiative to takeover
the road, says Main Street is
conducting a study focused on
cost, safety, benefits, draw-
backs and all other aspects of
a takeover.
"We're trying to be very
comprehensive and consider-
ing all the facts." He estimates
that Main Street should be
done with its study in six
weeks and that commissioners
should wait until then before
voting on the wording. The
city has until the end of June
to submit a question for place-
ment on the November ballot.
Mary Cooney, public ser-
vices director for the Broward
Supervisor of Elections, says
the only real limits on non-
binding ballot questions are
word length. "We're going to
print whatever it is they give
us."
State statutes require any
"constitutional amendment or


drivers don't pay attention to
motorcyclists.
According to the Florida
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles,
there were 9,618 motorcycle
crashes in 2008, including 502
fatalities and 8,519 injuries.
Broward [37], Palm Beach
[34] and Miami-Dade [44]
Counties led Florida in the
number of fatalities in 2008.
Ron Catronio, executive
director of Big Bike Riders
Association of Florida, Inc.,
has had his bike blessed half-
a-dozen times and carries a St.
Christopher medal while he
rides.
"You can't afford not to
have him not ride with you.
Especially down here," said
Catronio.


other public measure submit-
ted for vote of the people shall
be printed in clear and unam-
biguous language." Statutes
also limit the length of the
question to 75 words with an
additional 15 words to explain
the financial impact.
According to a previous
estimate by Standard Parking,
hired by the city to perform a
parking study, existing park-
ing spaces could generate
about $365,000 in revenue
each year. A preliminary study
by Main Street estimates that
125 spaces added to Wilton
Drive could generate between
$213,000 and $854,000 a
year.
"It more than covers the
annual cost of maintaining the
drive," said Tabor.
Commissioner Scott
Newton says he's "open to
anything" but worries that
if parking is placed on Wil-
ton Drive any events, which
close down the street [Wicked
Manors, Stonewall Street
Festival], would close down
parking as well. "I'm for the
best manageable solution,"
said Newton.
Resnick, pointing to the
projected decrease in 2009
property values, said cost is
still the main concern and that
it's not the time for something
unnecessary. But, he says, if
voters favor a takeover "I'll
pursue it" and look for ad-
ditional funding from the state
and federal government or
"some other mechanism."
The Broward County
Property Appraiser estimates
that values in Wilton Manors
dropped in 2009 by 18.46
percent and by 21.47 percent
in Oakland Park.
Green and Resnick say
voters need to know all the
facts and the "true cost" of the
take over before November.
"This is not a one shot deal
[if approved]. It will go on
forever," said Resnick.

HANSON
said.
In his interim position,
Hanson is earning $150,000
annually. Accepting the com-
mission's laudatory remarks,
Hanson said, "Thanks for the
support. It's been a pleasure
up to this point. Let's take this
a step at a time."
Later, Hanson said he
understands the challenges
the city faces budgetwise, but
also sees the positives such as
renovations to the fishing pier
and construction of the Dixie
Flyover. He said the support
of city's management team
and the commission has been
very helpful during his five
weeks on the job.
Hanson came to the city
in 2001 as an assistant to the
city manager. Four years ago,
when the man who hired him,
Larry Deetjen, was fired,
Hanson moved to the less vis-
ible position.
He is a graduate of Potomac
State, West Virginia Univer-
sity and in 1997, Marshall
University where he received
a master's degree in manage-
ment.
He held positions with the
West Virginia Department
of Environmental Protection
and came to South Florida to
work in Plantation as assistant
to the mayor. His wife, Amy,
works for the parks and recre-
ation department at Constitu-

John Knox Village lends its support once again to Pompano

Beach's Annual Children's Piano Competition Feb. 27


Phyllis J. Neuberger
wants your suggestions
about people who are
making a difference.

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN WRITER
John Knox Village, or JKV,
and its residents have been
enthusiastic supporters of
the Annual Children's Piano
Competition since its incep-
tion.
Bob Milanovich, often
thought of as the 'Village Am-
bassador,' will be in the audi-
ence, along with a bus load of
Village residents to appreciate
and laud the talented young
musicians on stage. Milanov-
ich, director of marketing and
resident relations says, "We're
delighted to contribute the t-
shirts and the trophies for this
event. These young people de-


Making a

Difference


serve to be encouraged. They
are our future. We love music
and that's why we support
this event and also co-sponsor
the Pompano Beach Winter
Concert Series with the city's
parks and recreation depart-
ment. We also design the
cover for the concert series
programs."
JKV is a strong supporter of
many Pompano Beach orga-
nizations and civic functions.
'Ambassador Bob' sits on the
board of the Pompano Beach
Historical Society and can
be seen every Saturday at the
Green Market where Village
nurses are on hand to give
free blood pressure readings.
"Our thrift shop has tables
of wonderful bargain priced
treasures that get gobbled up
every Saturday at the Green
Market," he says, adding,
"Our Pompano Beach pio-
neers, who are aging, often
choose to live out their lives
in JKV which keeps them in
touch with the community
in which they've lived their
lives."
As supporters of Sample
McDougald House, the Vil-
lage will soon supply ground
crews and plantings for the
grounds. This final phase,
when completed, will ready
the house for its grand open-
ing.

Milanovich ticked off the
Yuletide Parade, Silver Angels
which recognizes outstand-
ing seniors outside of the
Village, Tiger Trail, Teacher
of the Year and the Chamber
of Commerce. "I feel like I
belong to Pompano Beach,"
he says. "My wife and I will
eventually live in the Village I
love. I believe in the concept


of this Village, and I've seen
it work for thousands of resi-
dents over the years. Many of
the earlier residents who have
passed on now have children
living here. The key to its suc-
cess is the volunteer efforts
of both the residents and the
board of directors, none of
whom are compensated.
The Village becomes an
extended family. The support
the residents give one another
is nothing short of magical."
He uses Ron Davis as an


example. "This resident, who
is the retired music director
of Broward County Public
Schools, recently organized a
men's chorus. It now has fifty
members, launching friend-
ships among men who didn't
even know each other. They
have a marvelous time re-
hearsing, performing for us
and for organizations outside
of the Village. We believe that
involved residents keep both
mind and body healthy. It
works for me, too!"

Beth Shires
JKV Activities Director,
Beth Shires has much to do
with making the village the
success it is. She and her team
give residents a monthly cal-
endar filled with enough fun
and stimulating activities to
challenge the schedule of any
socialite.
In addition Shires is often
the reason for the success of
the many city events listed by
Bob Milanovich. She says,
"As a 501c3, we have re-
quirements to be met, but our
Village goes far above and
beyond those requirements. I
credit Frank Furman's leader-
ship for starting us down this
road.
We are a tremendous partner
for Pompano Beach. After all,
the Village has 954 Pompano
Beach residents living here,
and we employ over 650
people which makes us one of
the largest employers in the
city. We support many local
organizations through our
Village and employees to help
make Pompano Beach the
best it can be."
Shires says, "We also offer
our facilities to a long list
of non profits at no charge.
Many organizations meet here
regularly or for their special
events and occasions.
The list includes churches,
retired federal employees, or
SNARFE, Al-Anon, Toastmas-
ters, Chamber of Commerce,
League of Women Voters,
Broward Musicians Associa-
tion, Hospice of SE Florida,
Broward Library Foundation,
FliCRA, Rotary and more."
Continuing, Shires says,
"In addition to all of this, we
have established a 'Sharing


and Caring' committee which
is headed up by Kathryn
Viau. This committee has
done an amazing number of
worthy outreach projects in
2009.
Kathryn Viau
Director of Resident Ser-
vices, Kathryn Viau has what
appears to be a week's worth
of work to do every day, but
she still manages to chair the
Village Sharing &- Caring
Committee.
She explains why she is
willing to take on this extra
assignment. "To be at JKV
one must love caring for
people. We work at doing
that for every aspect of our
residents' lives. I've been
here for nine years working
in several capacities. I see
helping the greater commu-
nity function well as part of
our responsibility."
She continues, "Sharing
& Caring provides outreach
services to a wide variety of
recipients."
Viau names a few includ-
ing grandparents raising
grandchildren, seniors strug-
gling to provide in home
care to loved ones, sports
programs geared to teaching
leadership skills to our youth
and pantries supplying food
for the hungry."
She adds, "When we
heard the homeless shelters
were packing in people but
had no blankets, we bought
$2,000 worth of blankets
and delivered them. We gave
$10,000 to Fisher House to
provide telephone cards to
our troops and their families
so that they can talk to each
other. We've supported Girl
Scouts, the Fishing Rodeo,
United Way, and the Boys
& Girls Club. Our Health
For Life Van goes out into
the community to do well-
ness screenings. The list.
goes on and on, and now we
are persuading our employ-
ees to volunteer in their
communities. We will be
recognizing and honoring
those who do."
Thank you JKV and resi-
dents for your support of the
Piano Competition and so
many additional community
efforts where you continue to
make a difference.

Continued from page 7
three-cornered cookies filled

reminiscent of Haman's hat
or ears.
The best-known Purim
custom is assembling in syna-
gogue to hear the Reading of
the Megillah, a hand-written
scroll containing the Book of
Esther in Hebrew.
Noisemakers called grag-
gers are distributed to the
congregation, and they make
a great noise when Haman's
name is spoken, in fulfill-
ment of the commandment to
"utterly wipe out the remem-
brance of Amalek" [Exodus
7:14].
Haman was a descendant of
the Amalekite tribe, Israel's
arch-enemy. The very holiday
is a testament to the miracle


of Jewish survival, as a
people, culture, and religion.

The problems with maintaining home care.
Caregivers face many challenges providing home care. A wife caring for her husband
may risk injury trying to help him. Challenge of keeping constant surveillance on a
spouse with advanced dementia. Or a son may live 500 miles from his disabled
parents & find himself constantly traveling to & from his home, trying to taking care of
the parents. Some caregivers simply don't have the time to watch over loved ones &
Those needing care are sometimes neglected.

New Deerfield Beach parks director puts ball fields at top of list


By Judy Wilson

PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach A veter-
an public parks manager has
risen to a new position parks
and recreation director.
Bob Harbin, 66, who
retired Jan. 1 after 25 years
heading the parks and recre-
ation division for Broward


County, started work Tuesday.
It wasn't a day too soon.
"I knew I still wanted to
work, but I had this threshold
in which to retire," Harbin
said of his previous situation.
"I am already primed to get
started."
Harbin replaces Vince Ken-
drick who retired late last year
after 10 years with the city.


Harbin has a one-year, hourly
contract with no benefits. He
thinks he'll be on the job
more than the 40-hours-per-
week for which he'll be paid
at least for the first three to
six months.
A project at the top of his
pile is the acquisition of Bro-
ward County School Board
land next to Quiet Waters
Elementary School for ball
fields. "We're starving here
for athletic facilities," he said.


"We'll go ahead with this one
as quickly as possible."
Also high on his list is
improving the appearance of
Deerfield's parks. "We want
to show visible change with-
out spending a lot of money.
That's the challenge," he said.
He is already aware of the
city's award-winning beach.
"Absolutely gorgeous," he
said this week.
An achievement of Harbin's
career with the county was
the passage of a $400 million
bond issue in 2000 dedicated
to open space, park improve-
ment and new parks. Broward
voters approved the bonds by a
whopping 72 percent, the high-
est percentage ever recorded
for a park issue in the country
Harbin said.
Returned to the cities was
$40 million of those dollars.
"Deerfield Beach did quite
well on that," he remembers.
Before coming to Broward
County, Harbin worked in
South Carolina and for Bre-
vard County.

A few thoughts on hiring home care aides.
Many of these aides are well-qualified, honest people who will do a good job; but, of
course, there will be some not so reputable. If you are looking to hire someone, be
sure you interview, check references & qualifications. You will be responsible for
scheduling that person & doing payroll and taxes as well. Be very sure you hire
someone trustworthy, as the elderly seem to trust these helpers more than they should
& therefore can easily be taken advantage of.

Peking
Continued from page 19
in black bean sauce, this
classic dish is replenished
frequently and shows off the
full breadth of flavors of this
pungent Chinese favorite.
The General Tsao chicken
lives up to expectations with
its crispy morsels of battered
poultry smothered in a tangy
hot ginger and garlic sauce.
In fact, chicken can also be
enjoyed sweet and sour, with
honey sauce, with broccoli, in
wing form and several other
ways as well. The name of
the game at Peking Tokyo is
variety and quantity.
Fish, shrimp, scallops
and various other seafood
surprises are always on hand.
Be they fried, steamed or
smothered in a zesty sauce,
there is something to suit each
individual preference.
There are plenty of options
for meat lovers including,
addictive pork-filled
dumplings and a tasty pepper
steak that has great kick to it.


Another popular section
is the sushi corer. Hand
rolled all day long, the nigiri,
maki and California rolls are
prepared fresh and should
be enjoyed with soya sauce,
pickled ginger and wasabi.
Many other sushi varieties are
also on display.
A good selection of
vegetables is also available.
Mushrooms, cabbage, corn,
broccoli, cauliflower and a
host of other legumes offer a
healthy option.
Soups such as hot & sour,
wonton and egg drop are
steaming hot and surprisingly
authentic in their flavor
profiles. Of course, the many
preparation styles of rice and
noodles are important anchors
to any Asian meal.
The salad bar is expansive,
loaded with every vegetable,
vinaigrette and garnish
imaginable. For dessert,
various cakes and ice creams
are a nice way to cap off
a belt-straining outing to
Peking Tokyo. This all-you-
can-devour buffet is $6.75


Monday through Friday from
11 am to 3:30 p.m., $7.75
Saturday and Sunday and
$9.99 every day of the week
from 3:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
There is ample free parking,
credit cards are accepted and
take-out is available.
When hunger strikes and
Asian flavors beckon, the
Peking Tokyo in Deerfield
Beach is a sure-fire way to
satiate a craving without
breaking the bank.

Who Pays for the CRA?
The CRA is funded through Tax Increment Financing (TIF), which
raises revenues for development efforts without raising taxes. When
the CRA was created, the value of the property in the CRA district
was established as the "base year" amount. Property taxes received
in subsequent years over the base year amount go to the City and
County that then pay the increment or the increased value over the
base year, back to the CRA for redevelopment purposes.
The CRA Board meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. in
the City Commission Chambers at Pompano Beach City Hall.

Couriel said his proposal

How would they increase

Couriel said he hoped

A 35-year successful practice in Lighthouse Point and


the newest technology give Dr. Edwin Delz an edge


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAM WRITER
As he ate'his Kashi
cereal on a recent morning,
Dr. Edwin Delz talked to
The Pelican about his 35
year practice in the same
Lighthouse Point location
at 2323 NE 26th Ave. for all
of those years.
In addition to a beautiful
suite of offices, this dentist
has invested in the newest
technology. He's quick to
show off a Cerec machine
which he calls the ultimate
in dental restoration. "With
this equipment I can custom
design and fabricate a new
crown while the patient
watches," he says.
"In one visit I can solve a
problem that most dentists
need two weeks to equal.
That means eliminating two
injections, two visits and
two weeks of living with the
insecurity of a temporary
crown. One of my patients
broke a tooth and was flying
to India the next day. I was
able to create a custom crown
in one visit and send him
happily on his way."
Delz admits this possibility


was unheard of when he
opened his practice in 1973.
"I try to stay ahead of the
pack with technology that
provides a better service
and more comfort for my
patients. This machine can
make a crown or an implant
in one visit. I work with
oral surgeons who place
the implants and send their
patients to me for crowns. The
universal law on price is that
good is more expensive and
cheap is inferior. It's true for
dentistry too. I try to provide
a service beyond the patient's
expectations."
He does just that as far as
Yvette Chantre-Circu, Fort
Lauderdale, is concerned.
She says, "Dr. Delz recently
finished replacing 24 old
crowns out of 28 teeth in my
mouth. That's a lot of work,
and he did a magnificent job. I
couldn't be more pleased. He
is not only a skilled dentist,
but he is also a very kind
man. His team is also very
pleasant and helpful."
Kent Christman, Oakland
Park, has been a patient of Dr.
Delz since 1984. He says."I
went into his office to sell
him insurance, and I saw his


Dr. E. Delz is thrilled with the results from his Cerec technology equipment which enables him to custom design and fabri-
cate a new crown while the patient watches, solving a major dental problem in one visit. [Photo by Phyllis Neuberger]


sign, 'We cater to cowards.' I
knew I had found a home. He
has taken great care of me for
26 years, and I'm no longer
a coward when it comes to
dentistry."
Delz highlights some
of the unusual services he
provides in addition to general
dentistry. "I sometimes solve

dental problems for patients
that they are unaware that
they have. Headaches can
often be caused by a bad bite
or facial body asymmetries."
He continues, "I was
introduced to AFL, or
Advanced Lightwire
Functional, appliances when I
attended a James and Strokon
seminar. Light weight wire
ALF appliances are invisible
in the mouth, unobtrusive, do
not impair speech and can be
worn 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
The brain child of
Darick Nordstrom, DDS,
their purpose is the gentle
harnessing or redirecting
of muscle parafunction to


resolve skeletal problems."
He continues, "Many adults
enter our practices with
multiple tooth arch and cranial
defects. They have short
tolerances time for wearing
fixed orthodontic appliances.
The ALF may create the
possibility of augmenting,
enhancing and decreasing
the length of orthodontic
treatment."
"These appliances are well
tolerated by adults since
they can be removed and
inserted at the discretion of
the patient to bring about
cranial realignment. This
improvement can lead to
centered realignment which

Greg Burns art show set for Feb. 20, 21 at St. Gabriel Church


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach Greg
Bums is a happy man, and
that happiness did not come
to him by chance. He made a
conscious decision to be so.
And he thanks an uncle who
pushed him to that decision
when he was still in college.
"I was a psychology major
with an art minor at the
University of Oklahoma when
my sister got married," he
says.
"My uncle and I both
attended the event. He was
a guidance counselor. His
advice to me at that event was
to 'Quit art.' He suggested
that I finish psychology and
save art for my pleasure."
Greg laughs and continues
the story.
"He told me I should take a
job in guidance and hate my
job like everyone else does. I
told my uncle his advice had
been fantastic and had really
helped me."
The "advice' sent Greg
back to the university where
he switched his major to art
and carried psychology as his
minor.
But Greg would not have
hated his job. He is a man
incapable of hate. He is an
artist who seeks and finds
beauty in places that many
people have never seen.
Patricia Burns, Greg's wife,
agrees.
"I love how happy and at
peace he is with himself and
with the world. He's never
insecure. All the foibles that I
have, he doesn't have. When
I first met him, I knew I was
safe with him," she says.
She walks into another
room to show a display of
framed-art valentines that
Greg has created for her for
every year of their marriage.
This year, Greg painted
Patricia reading to their dog,
Carley, a 12-year-old white
Labrador Retriever.
Greg wasn't handed an
easy life for an artist. He was
born with arthogryposis, a
congenital disease that causes
degeneration of the spinal
cord and leads to muscular
atrophy.
Greg's fingers curl up into
the palm of his hands. Unable
to walk, Greg spends much of
his time in a wheelchair.
As a child, Greg learned to
pull himself along sidewalks
to get to local parks. He drew
and painted with his hands
until he could no longer use
them for his art. Then he put
the paintbrush between his
teeth, using his hand only to
steady the canvas.
When he was in high
school, he won an

international award for a

="I've always done art, and
one day I woke up as an
artist," he says.
He and Patricia owned
an art gallery for years in
Oklahoma City. They have
since moved the gallery
to their website, www.
gregburns-fineart.com.
Greg and Patricia have
been regular winter visitors
to Pompano Beach for years
where they enjoy a seaside
view of the ocean from their

Greg enjoys focusing on

as the Briny Pub, Kester

early pioneers.

Oakland Park staff members raise $1,200 for Haiti


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Over the past three Fridays,
Oakland Park staff members
turned lunch time into a time
for charity.
During "Hot Dogs for
Haiti" Jan. 29, Feb. 5 and
12 city staff raised $1,205
towards Project Medishare
for Haiti, Inc., which has been
providing medical assistance
to Haiti since 1994, through
the Broward County Medical
Association Foundation, or
BCMA. Project Medishare is
currently operating a hospital
tent next to Port-au-Prince
International Airport.
"One-hundred percent of
everything [donated] goes to
the hospital treating patients,"
said David Rafter, Oakland :
Park public information
officer.
Fundraiser organizers
purchased hot dogs, potato
chips, soda and water with
city funds. According to
Jenna LaFleur, parks and
recreation department
director, the city was
reimbursed using a portion of
the funds raised.
Former Oakland Park


Mayor Carol Stevens, who
visited Haiti about six years
ago, says events like "Hot
Dogs for Haiti," make
people think about what's
happened and the need to
keep providing aid. Stevens,
who visited the country about
six years ago, says Haitians
needed help before the
earthquake struck. "I've never
seen anything like it."
Cynthia Peterson, executive
vice president of BCMA,
says her organization started
their relief efforts "the day
after the earthquake, asking
our doctors and friends for
medical supplies."
So far BCMA has received
donations from individuals
and groups throughout the
community, including medical
supplies, food, water, clothes
and crutches and canes for
earthquake victims who've
lost limbs or have trouble
walking.
"We were overwhelmed,
the response has been
unbelievable. I don't think the
community is going to forget
about it," said Peterson.
Peterson says most
monetary donations to BCMA
have been from individuals

munity & economic development [Left]. Also pictured is Oakland Park Horticulturist Charles Livio. [Staff Photos]


ranging between $25 and $50.
"It's a bigger check than what
we've gotten," said Peterson
about the check from Oakland
Park. "We haven't really
gotten anything as large in
one lump sum. It's wonderful
what the City of Oakland Park
is doing."

affects the entire body. The
patient becomes taller. The
shoulders will realign. The
hips will realign and the
patient's posture improves.
The results can be relief of
TMJs, headaches, the ability
to walk, improve competitive
swim times and other patient
body issues. I balance bites,
faces and bodies with this
technology. My goal is to
offer services that benefit the
patient and are seldom offered
in dental practices."
But dentistry is not his only
passion. Since receiving a
liver transplant in 1998 at
the University of Miami/
Jackson Memorial Hospital,
he has become a transplant
ambassador and organ donor
promoter.
He says, "With the
introduction of new antiviral
drugs, I am completely free of
the Hep C virus. I owe my life
to my donor and his family.
I received a gift. My life
was saved and I owe a life.
I attempt to pay back every
day by sharing the story of
my donor's gift of life and his
family's compassion. I do this
by demonstrating, writing and
.speaking of the importance of
organ donations."
Delz third passion is
Aikido which he describes as


"compassionate martial art."
It uses physics principals
and movement. As a defensive
art one works to gain control
of mind and body.
"I am proud to have just
earned my black belt. It
amazes me that at my age I
can dive in the air, fall, roll
and get up. To me, the black
belt means I'm a beginner
who can now improvise and
create techniques as my mind
sees new possibilities in each
movement. We, my donor
and I, prove that vital organ
transplant is no longer an
experimental procedure but is
a viable treatment alternative.
We practice Aikido to show
every donor family that their
decision to donate was the
right choice." To make an
appointment, call 954-782-

Oakland Park is currently

By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Melanie Wolfe, 11, is little
nervous about the Pompano
Beach Children in the Arts
Piano competition. It's her
first time to compete, and
she will perform two pieces
before two judges: Playing
Soldiers by Rebickoff and
Melody by Schumann.
Dr. Barbara Kaskinen,
Melanie's teacher will have
seven students competing this
year.
They will be among over
150 young pianists from be-
ginner to advanced levels.
Sandra Greenland's piano
studio is in Coral Springs.
This year four of her students
will compete.
"The Pompano Beach
Piano Competition is the
foremost competition for
youngsters in the area," says
Greenland.
"South Florida is known
for its superb teaching and
- talented students, and Pom-
pano Beach draws the best to

of the students' musical year,
and they strive to reach the
pinnacle of their abilities.
The best of the best perform

GOOD ORAL HEALTH PROMOTES CLEAR THINKING


There is already research that links
gum disease with heart disease, stroke,
diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Now,
a recent study suggests that gum disease
may also be associated with poorer
thinking skills. Researchers found that
adults aged 60 and older with the highest
levels of the gum disease-causing
pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis
were three times more likely to
experience trouble recalling a three-word
sequence over. time than those with
lower levels of the pathogen. Adults with
the highest levels of the pathogen were
also two times more likely to fail three-
digit reverse subtraction tests. It is
thought that gum disease influences
brain function through several mecha-
nisms, including causing body-wide
inflammation, a risk factor for loss of

mental function. If you have concerns or
questions about the well being of your
teeth and gums, call the practice of Dr.
HUTCHISON Please don't let
unwarranted fears keep you from
maintaining your dental health. Your
chances of needing expensive treatment
in the future because of neglect today are
a far greater concern. The key to dental
health is routine preventive care. Most
insurance companies allow two cleaning
per year. Have you had yours this year?
We are currently accepting new patients.
We are providers of Botox and Juvederm.
P.S. As scientists slowly collect
evidence that links oral health with brain
function and overall health, patients have
more reason than ever to brush and floss
and visit the dentist regularly.

Frank H. Furman Jr. Thank You For 31 Years


of Leadership from the Board of Directors,


Residents and Staff of John Knox Village


Frank H. Furman, Jr. and his wife Martha Jane upon the occasion of his retirement
as President of the Board of Directors ofJohn Knox Village, Pompano Beach.


Residents, staff, vendors, and even visitors they all have
experienced a "specialness" at John Knox Village. The Village
is a uniquely special place that has evolved over the last
42 years into one of the largest continuing care retirement
communities in the nation.
For 31 of those years or about 75% of our history,
Frank Furman has been amazingly committed to the
success of John Knox Village. While financial stability for
the Village has always been a priority goal of Mr. Furman's,
his view ofJKV success was not only financially-based but
equally linked with resident well-being.
Frank Furman has.truly cared and continues to care about
the people. Perhaps that genuine care and concern for people
is what enabled his leadership to leave such a power-
ful legacy. John Knox Village is the success it is
today largely due to his leadership.
During 31 years Mr. Furman faced
difficult issues, challenging times and

also exciting periods of growth and triumphs. As President of
the Board of Directors, he has listened carefully, given great
thought, and has led as if he himself was a resident who had to
live with the consequences of his decisions. It is only fitting that
now he and Martha Jane are Village residents. After so much
of his energy, time and talent have been given to the Village,
now he can enjoy the community that he has helped build and
the security he has helped it provide to so many others.
Memories, milestones, successes, challenges they are
plentiful in Frank Furman's tenure at John Knox Village,
and are too numerous to capture here.
All of us members of the John Knox Village family nearly
1000 residents, and 600 employees along with current and
past members of the Board of Directors, friends and
family join together in our wishes of thanks
and appreciation to Frank Furman for his
dedication and a job very well done!
