Pompano Beach It all ended be-
tween Pompano Beach Pier and Park-

when commissioners cancelled a two-
year-old lease which gave PBPP the
"exclusive right" to operate the city's
parking lots, municipal pier, conces-
sion area and to offer limited vending
services.
In return for the lease, PBPP agreed
to pay the city monthly fees of $3,000.

Proposals to replace the op-
eration of the pier, bait shop
and concession area.
Some residents complained
that Scott Nielsen, who rep-
resents PBPP, did not comply
with the city's contract, and
there were complaints about
the pier's appearance.
Nielsen disagreed, saying,
"I charged the original rate
that was agreed upon, but the


lease that was presented to
the city did not represent the
prices that had been negoti-
ated. As to the appearance of
the pier, we cleaned the pier
two or three times a day. We
also participated in the annual
beach cleanup."
Nielsen explained that the
original negotiated prices
were $3 on weekdays and $5
on weekends. The lease pre-
sented to the city, according to
Nielsen, stated that weekend
prices were $4 per day.
"As soon as the city manag-
er sends me my cancellation


notice, I'll sit down and talk
with him," said Nielsen.
The lease has a 30-day can-
cellation written agreement.
But Commissioner Barry
Dockswell said he was con-
cerned about what would hap-
pen on "... day 31. I wanted
to make sure that there was
no degradation of services.
We need to do an RFP so that
we are fair to all possible
vendors for the job. I want to
make sure that the city has
the pier management under
control in the interim between
termination and execution


of an agreement with a new
vendor."
The parking lot will be fit-
ted with central pay stations
where those who use the lot
will have to pay by machine
for timed-parking.
"We won't need a parking
attendant after the lot is fitted
with the machines," Fisher
said.
Earlier this year, the city
canceled all plans for PBPP
for its proposed ocean side
luxury restaurant and parking
garage, a multi-million dol-
lar project that was delayed


because the city had not re-
searched deeds on the leased
land that prohibited private
development.
PBPP had to change the
original design of the three-
tiered restaurant to avoid the
deed restrictions.
Nielsen said he was disap-
pointed that he and the city
manager had not talked before
the item reached the city com-
mission.
"As soon as the city manag-
er sends me my cancellation
notice, I'll sit down and talk
with him," said Nielsen.

Property values in plummeting mode, new numbers

"horrific" according to tax appraiser's office


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Broward County Unless
there are hidden pockets of
real estate wealth not yet
discovered by the Broward
County Property Appraiser,
property values in all Bro-
ward cities have plummeted.
Preliminary figures, called
"worse case scenarios" were
distributed recently proving
what the appraiser's office has
been saying for two or three
years.
"No one was listening,"
said Bob Wolfe, spokesman
for Lori Parrish's office.
"These are horrific numbers.
Some cities are going to get


wasted."
City and town budgets are
based on property values. .
Last year with the across the
board drop in property values,
short-shrifted budgets called
for employee furloughs, de-
creased county library hours
and some lay-offs.
Town and county officials
are already in budget meet-
ings for 2010 to 2011 fiscal
years.


Northeast Broward mu-
nicipalities are not among
the worst. That sorry state
belongs to North Lauderdale,
down 38 percent, Tamarac,
down 25 percent and Lauder-
dale Lakes down 29 percent.
But in Deerfield Beach, the
drop was 20 percent. Pom-
pano Beach values went down
19 percent,
Wilton Manors, 18%, Oak-
land Park, 21%, Lauderdale

The Evolution of X SeItiorCI Caring In-home
Home Care nelpersi Companions
Under Medicare, nursing homes were only reimbursed on behalf of Social Security
beneficiaries for short-term rehabilitation. Under Medicaid, nursing homes were
reimbursed for impoverished disabled Americans & impoverished aged Americans
over the age of 65. It has never been the intent of Congress to pay for nursing home
care for all Americans. The nursing home entitlement for all aged Americans was now
gone. Over the last 40 years, there has been a gradual change away from the use of
nursing homes for long-term care towards the use of home care & community living
arrangements that also provide in-house care.

finish. Option la, a temporary
lot, includes the building of
an additional tennis court,
would create 40 new spaces,
cost $477,310, and take two to
three months to build.
Option 2, a permanent lot,
would create 59 new spaces,
cost $608,185 and take three
to four months to finish. Op-
tion 2a, a permanent parking
lot built to all necessary code
requirements, includes a new
tennis court, an additional
35 spaces, costs $659,480
and would take three to four
months to complete.
A two-level parking garage
would create 117 new spaces,
cost $3,194,470 and take
between eight and ten months
to construct.
A three-level parking garage
would create 205 new spaces,
cost $4,801,470 and take 12
to 14 months to construct.
There are currently 71 park-
ing spaces next to Hagen Park
and city hall. The city lost 90
spaces when the new city hall
was built.
"These are all conserva-
tive numbers. We wanted to
be safe. There is potential
savings on all of these," said
Jason McClair, a representa-
tive from Chen & Associates.
A 10 percent contingency cost
was added to each proposal.
Commissioners weren't
satisfied with the estimated
cost of option 1 and wanted a
new estimate of what a "bare
bones" surface lot might cost.
Commissioner Ted Galatis
says a surface lot would give
the city time to decide wheth-
er or not it wants to build a
parking garage.
McClair guessed that a
"bare bones" lot might cost
about $190,000 and last about
three years. Commissioners
asked Chen & Associates to
re-evaluate the cost of a tem-
porary lot and present their
findings at a later meeting.
David Archacki, director of
public services, says the cost
to demolish the old city hall
would be about $60,000.

After arduous process,

beach assessment is

approved for Hillsboro

Restoration could happen in April

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER

Hillsboro Beach The commission Wednesday approved a
$6.4 million special assessment for beach nourishment over the
objection of several hundred condominium owners.
Mayor Carmen McGarry said permits to bring sand to the
north mile of beach should be issued in mid-April, in time for
the town to use a sand dredge working in Boca Raton to restore
a beach there. Use of the dredge will save up to $1 million.
Another cost saving could come when the financial houses
bid on the 10-year bond issue that will finance the project. Con-
sultant Phil Gonot has figured the assessment based on seven
percent annual interest rate, but that figure will likely be four
percent he said. There is also the hope for a $2 million FEMA
grant further reducing the loan amount.
As calculated now, condominium residents will pay $2,537 to
restore the north beach and single-family homeowners between
$5,500 and $7,500 depending on the front footage of their
residences. The assessment can be paid annually for 10 years
and will appear on the real estate tax bill. For condo owners the
annual payment is around $360.
The assessment was established by a 3 to 1 vote of the com-
mission with Commissioner Tom Puleri dissenting and Vice

would ask residents if the city
should take control of Wilton
Drive. On Tuesday, commis-
sioners decided to place the
item on the April 13 agenda.
Any final decision would
still rest with commissioners.
Those in favor of a takeover
want the road narrowed to
two lanes and angled parking
added.
"I'm in favor of pulling it
altogether and not moving for-
ward at this time," said Com-
missioner Ted Galatis Tues-
day. Galatis says the question
is unfair and wouldn't give
voters enough information to
make an informed decision.
"Our city staff will obtain
accurate information," said
Mayor Gary Resnick.
The draft of the question
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." Com-
missioner Scott Newton also
opposed the wording. "I would
be scared to death of this ques-
tion, I really would."
Main Street, which is
advocating for the takeover,
has also voiced opposition to
putting the question on the
ballot and asked commission-
ers not to proceed until their
study is finished in about six
weeks. They say narrowing
the road would improve safety
and business conditions along
Wilton Drive.
A previous study by the


Florida Department of Trans-
portation which currently con-
trols the road, estimates the
yearly cost to maintain Wilton
Drive would be $75,000 to
$85,000. Resurfacing the road
every 15 years would cost
about $528,000. The city esti-
mates the costs to narrow and
reconfigure the roadway could
be $2 to $4 million.
Business owner Mary Ellen
Charapko calls that estimate
"outrageous" and "inflated"
and says narrowing the road
would improve safety and
increase property values. City
officials are waiting for engi-
neers to reassess some of the
estimated takeover costs.
, Commissioner Tom Green
said Main Street would have
plenty of time to "present
their case" to voters. Ac-
cording to the city attorney's
office, two public hearings
must be held by July 1 in time
to submit the question to vot-
ers. Resnick says a takeover
would be paid for by the city
so "I don't see any harm in
asking the residents how they
feel." Green reiterated his pre-
vious comments that he would
listen to an overwhelming
vote more than a divided one.
Vice Mayor Justin Flippen
suggested the wording in the
ballot should focus on the
minimum estimated cost. "$2
to $4 million is too loosey
goosey," said Flippen.
Before any referendum oc-
curs, commissioners will have
to overcome disagreements
over what kind of information
should be included. "There's
a long way to go here," said
Newton.

Deerfield Beach's Mona Lisa Restaurant brings authen-
tic New York style thin crust pizza to the city's shores
By Malcolm McClintock prepared sandwiches, served hot delectable treats.


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 decor
and an impressive coal fire oven.
The menu features tantalizing ap-
petizers: plump and juicy coal oven
chicken wings with sauteed onions
and blue cheese or a flavorful cap-
rese salad loaded with freshly made
mozzarella and basil.
The garlic sauteed 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


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-
hs. eclairs. Napoleons. Turamnuu.
chocolate mousses and a anous other


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!

Park and Monroe County waters, which usually begins on March 1, will not be
open this year. The FWC issued an executive order on Jan. 15 that temporarily
extends closed harvest seasons for snook statewide until Sept.. 1 to protect snook
populations affected by recent prolonged cold weather in Florida.
The order, which took effect on Jan. 16, provides that no person may harvest
or possess snook in all state and federal waters off Florida until September.
Anglers may still catch and release snook during the closure, and the FWC en-
courages everyone to handle and release these fish carefully to help ensure their
survival upon release.
More information regarding the FWC's executive order for snook is available
online at MyFWC.com/Rules, click on "Fishing Saltwater."



Oakland Park celebrates Annual

Carter G. Woodson Festival


As the nation celebrates Black His-
tory Month, Oakland Park honored the
man who made it all possible.
The city held its 51 Annual Dr.
Carter G. Woodson Festival last
Saturday at Dr. Carter G. Woodson
Park. Originally started by the Harlem
McBride-43d" Street Neighborhood
Association, the city has since part-
nered with the neighborhood associa-
tion to produce the festival. Named the
"Father of Black History," Woodson
earned the title by pioneering "Ne-
gro History Week" which eventually
became Black History Month.
This year's festival coincided with
the park's grand re-opening. Previous-
ly, Oakland Park received $400,000 in
matching grants, used to expand the
park by purchasing two adjacent piec-
es of land, renovate the playground
area, construct a new picnic area, in-
stall new lighting and paved pathways,
landscaping, benches, barbeque grills
and drinking fountains. The city also
spent $182,000 adding new restrooms.


Learning to say "no" to "no"


Dear Debbie,
I am trying to exercise regularly
but I can't seem to stay on a regimen.
What can I do?
Regimen in Pembroke Pines

Dear Regimen,
There is a lot of inner resistance
when you try to stick to a regimen.
There is also a lot of internal pressure
to stick to the regimen and if for some
reason you don't, there is the feeling
of guilt. In addition, you revert back
subconsciously to your old childish
pattern of saying "NO."
There is still that feeling of being
forced to do something.
The strong "NO" manifests in fab-
ricating excuses in your mind. When
you become aware of this dynamic
that plays out inside of you, you can
learn how to work with it.
There is an energy that is created
when your whole body is strongly
resisting. You can actually use this
energy while you exercise. There is no
need to wait for the yes before you go
exercise. Hear the excuse, recognize it
for what it is, the "NO," and choose to
exercise anyway.
This will create the discipline needed
to stick with you regimen. Discipline
is a very important concept when it
comes to healing and self growth. Dis-
cipline allows you to break a pattern
and create a new habit. When creating
a discipline it is important to make a
realistic schedule.
Decide time of day, how many times
per week, and for how long is each


exercise session. Commit to it for one
month and tell yourself that no matter
what your
mind tells
you, you will
stay on track.
Recognize
that circum-
stances may .
come up that

Pompano Beach Elementary vice principal returns from Petit Goave,

Haiti inspired to continue to help earthquake victims


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN WRITER
Marie-Dominique Price-Du-
mervil says, "I will never be
the same after seeing the total
devastation I saw in Haiti.
However, the positive and
hopeful attitude of the people
and their desire to build a
better place inspires me and
makes me want to keep on
helping them achieve that
dream. I will return on spring
break and do more with what
we have raised between now
until my return."
Dumervil, the assistant
principal at Pompano Beach
Elementary School, described
what was happening as she
showed her Haiti pictures to


the semi darkness, we could
see it was a complete mess.
All the government buildings
were destroyed. Everywhere
we looked we saw piles of de-
stroyed homes and temporary
tents made of sheets where
those who survived were
sleeping."
"We drove the additional
30 to 40 miles to Petit Goave.

quake devastated the island
country many nations world-
wide were motivated to try to
help.
"When my father, Francis
Price, said "Come quickly
and bring medicine and sup-

could. Thanks to the personal
generosity of my associ-

of my donated money on 100-

She says when she traveled
by bus to the Dominican Re-
public/Haitian border, guards
tried to get money from her
group before being allowed to
cross.
"Here we were, bringing aid
to starving homeless people,

Don Meyler Inspections helps home and business


owners reduce their Windstorm Insurance costs


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN WRITER
Todd M. Shumway, CEO of
Don Meyler Inspections, or
DMI, is so sure of the value of
his company's service that he
offers a guarantee.
"If the customer's savings
are less than the cost of our
inspection, we will refund the
difference. That's how sure
I am that the average South
Florida building is deserving
of credits which entitle the
owner to insurance reduc-
tions."
Asked how he can make
that guarantee, "Every home
is insured as if it is a great
risk. That's why every home
owner should have a wind-
storm inspection. I took
over DMI in 2003 and kept
the name because of name
recognition. We inspect spe-
cific areas. For example, what
condition is the roof in, when
was it installed and what is
its exact shape? Is the house
concrete or wood? And we
inspect hurricane shutters."
Shumway says DMI looks
for mitigation devices such
as roof straps, nail spacing
on the roof deck and water
resistant layering over the
roof deck.
"In other words, we inspect
the inherent characteristics of
a building's structural design,
integrity and strength. De-
pending upon the findings,
certain features can make a
building stronger during a
windstorm and make it eli-
gible for significant insurance
discounts."
According to Shumway
hurricane shutters or impact
resistant glass are not the
only ways to lower insurance


sheathing to trusses; a tile or
shingle roof installed after
1994 in Broward County;
straps securing trusses to
outer concrete wall; second-
ary water resistance layering
over roof deck; having a Hip
shaped roof.
When the inspection is
finished, the inspector fills out
the Universal State Mitigation
Form that building owners
can give to their insurance
agent to receive discounts on
their premiums. Shumway
reminds property owners
to let their insurance agents
know if improvements such as
a new roof, hurricane shut-
ters or impact resistant glass
have been made since the last
windstorm inspection.
For more information or an
appointment, call 1-800-469-
0434

premiums.
"Self reporting the presence
of a property's strengths are
like telling the insurance com-
pany that a car has airbags or
anti-lock brakes. We find that
90 percent of our inspections
make property owners eligible
for discounts of 20 to 50 per-
cent, reducing premiums by
hundreds of dollars. In some
cases, savings are retroac-
tive."
Paul Cunningham, of Boca
Raton, will attest to that. "I
encourage everyone to have
an inspection. It didn't take
much time; the inspector was
friendly and it worked out


well for me. I was able to
save $1,800 and that's a real
savings, isn't it?" asked Cun-
ningham.
Jeffrey Kimple, of East
Boca, is another satisfied cli-
ent who says, "I had a home
inspection done by DMI.
They were courteous, profes-
sional and quick. The result
was an appreciable savings
for me."
DMI's inspectors are all
state certified contractors.
"We're very high tech,"
Shumway says. "We have
to be because we have 50
employees covering the entire
state. We have a staff of 80


including a trainer who travels
the state. Scott Kodel and
Bob Melka are co-owners of
this business. Scott spends a
great deal of time in Tallahas-
see, tracking the updates of
requirements for windstorm
insurance and mitigations
inspection."
Shumway believes most
home owners already have
inherited credits in their
properties and are entitled
to discounts, but don't know
it. Some of the cost saving
features include: reinforced
masonry or concrete block
construction; use and spacing
of nails to secure reinforced

arrived as had the military.
They were keeping order and
paying residents to break up
rocks and wood and haul it
away. Although food boxes
were visible, there was no dis-
tribution. People were sleep-
ing under sheet tents. They
would not enter any building
for fear of being crushed."
Doctors then set up a make
do clinic and the rest of her
group dealt with the hungry

"With the help of the resi-
dents, we cooked a meal for

comes from seeing so much
death and destruction.
"My father went to get a

Dumervil says that Petit
Goave is one of nine major
Haitian cities.
"Even though my father's
home is standing it is cracked
and he won't go inside for
fear of being crushed as so
many of his neighbors were.


He lives in a tent along with
the rest. He's actually a New

forth but since he retired he
spends most of his time in the
town of his birth in Haiti."
Asked if she ever lived
in Haiti, Dumervil replies,
"I was raised and educated


in New York and only went
to Haiti on vacations, see-
ing only the best of it. Once
I began to do humanitarian
work with my husband who
is the President of Children of

Erosion, water plant, efficiency are priorities for Hillsboro Beach candidates


Four on the ballot to
fill two seats

By Judy Wilson

PELICAN WRITER
Hillsboro Beach Voters here will
elect two commission members Tues-
day, March 9.
On the ballot are two political
newcomers, Joe Germano and Rhea


Weiss, and two incumbents, Tom Pul-
eri and Celinda Sawtelle. The terms
are for two years.
The town's major issue now and
perhaps forever is beach erosion and
how to repair and pay for it.
With the final vote on a $6.4 mil-
lion beach nourishment assessment
taken earlier this week, that matter is
resolved for the time being. But the
future of the town's beaches remains
an important campaign issue with


some candidates suggesting a con-
tinuing funding source be established
to combat erosion.
Also in the discussion are con-
tracts to upgrade Hillsboro's aging
water plant, a project that may cost
as much as $5 million and will affect
water rates. Contractual services
will also be on the agenda this year.
Both Waste Management's $300,000
contract to haul garbage and Deer-
field's $700,000 contract to provide


fire/paramedic services are up for
renewal. Some sitting commissioners
are eyeing ways to reduce the cost of
these services.
The candidates are also looking
for stability within town hall after a
series of town clerks and financial
managers have come and gone in the
last two years.
Here's a brief look at the candi-
dates, their backgrounds and their
messages.


Joe Germano, 76
A native of East Boston, Joe
Germano is taking his first shot at
elected office because he feels it is
his time to "step up and try and do
something."
At 17, Germano went into mili-
tary service for four years. Return-
ing to the Boston area he was
employed by the US Department of
Agriculture (1958-1990) where he
started at the lowest level and went
through the ranks to become a deputy director of the Stan-
dards and Labeling Division in Washington, D.C. He calls it
"quite a climb for someone from East Boston."
He and his wife, Carolyn, live at Hillsboro Island House-
Germano sees beach erosion, renovations at the water plant
and the high turnover of town hall employees as major con-
cerns. He served on the charter review board and attempted
to create a management position that would be charged with
making day-to-day decisions. The issue was not adopted by
the commission and was never presented to voters.
With.the current beach erosion problem being resolved,
Germano says the town needs to "live with" the groin,
or jetty, situation in Deerfield Beach and sand-pumping
practices in Boca Raton, both of which have contributed to
the town's erosion problems. He also wants come up with a
long term program to the restore beaches every eight to ten
years. He believes it is necessary to look to the future of the
town's water plant now undergoing renovations. "I think
this won't be the end of it, he said. Germano would also
like to see job descriptions written for town employees that
includes salary ranges and caps. He is also a member of the
beach erosion committee and attends commission meetings
faithfully.



Celinda Sawtelle, 59, incumbent
Incumbent Celinda Sawtelle is
seeking her second term on the
town commission. She said she had
not planned to run again but now
feels the town "needs me."
Sawtelle grew up in a Midwest
farm town but loved Florida from
the time she was age 17 and vowed '
to live here one day. After receiv-
ing her nursing degree at Macomb
Community College in Mt. Cle- .
mens, MI., she was an RN for 15
years at Detroit Medical Center
where she says she held leadership positions and took courses
toward a bachelor's degree at Siena Heights University.
She came to Florida permanently in 1998 and bought a
condominium on The Mile.
She is now a real estate agent with Ocean Trust Realty in
Deerfield Beach.
Sawtelle says her love of the ocean is still a driving force in
her life. Her favorite activity is walking the beach. Her aim in
retaining her seat is to stabilize the town's administration and
find ways to become more efficient. She is looking into ways
to save money when it comes time to renegotiate contracts,
two of which, sanitation collection and fire/paramedic ser-
vices, expire in 2010.
Her other goal is to form long range plans for the town's
water supply and solutions for beach erosion.
She lives at Diamond Head.


Tom Puleri, 72, incumbent
Tom Puleri is completing his
third year on the commission ap-
pointed initially to fill the term
of the late Larry Fink. A 13-year
resident of the town, Puleri is past -'i
chairman of the erosion committee,
past vice president of the Hillsboro .
Alliance and a past director of Opal
Towers Condominium Association. .
He is a life member of the Italian- Bt.
American Veterans' Organization,
AMVETS and Disabled American
Veterans. He served three years in the US Army.
Puleri held a two-year term on the Enfield, CT town
council before moving to Hillsboro Beach. In Enfield he was
a commercial real estate agent, home builder and property
manager.
Puleri wants the commission tomaintain the town's biggest
asset, its beach, so the lifestyle everyone enjoys will con-
tinue. He is not happy with the final assessment that was ap-
proved this week to pay for the beach revetment, in particu-
lar with the discount given the Hillsboro Club. In making the
assessment calculation, commissioners reduced the Club's
unit count by the 62 beds for its workers, gave every fourth
unit a pass and disregarded summer membership program.
Puleri also stresses running the town's business ir an
economical, efficient and fair manner and feels a fulltiine fi-
nancial officer should be added to its staff. "Hillsboro Beach
is not small potatoes," he said. "It is big business."
He lives with his wife Nancy in Opal Towers.


Rhea Weiss, 80
A mental health professional
in the area of education, Rhea
Weiss has been an influence in the
community since moving here in
1992. She describes her career as
developing "innovative programs
for mentally ill children and
youth" and she did that in Penn-
sylvania where she headed child
and youth services at the.State
Office of Mental Health.
Married to husband Irv, Weiss earned her masters degree
at Teachers College at Columbia University while rais-
ing three children. After moving to Opal Towers East, she
served on a task force for the Juvenile Justice Board, took a
state appointment as ombudsman for long term care facili-
ties, was on Hillsboro Charter Review Board, the ad hoc
beach assessment committee, her condo board the NE Focal
Point Advisory Board.
She has organized her campaign in four areas: budget, wa-
ter plant, beaches and long term planning. "I have identified
the problems and ways to solve them," she said.
To address the money issue, Weiss would review all
contracts, create new job descriptions, change the account-
ing system and reinstate reserve funds. As to the water plant,
Weiss supports the ongoing refurbishment and would work
with adjacent cities, the county and the state in regard to
future water needs. Weiss favors proceeding with the beach
nourishment and wants to enlist other agencies to deal with
the beach groin system in Deerfield Beach which is blamed
for Hillsboro's sand loss.
Weiss would appoint a long term planning committee
composed of a cross section of residents to study the needs
and the image of the town.


Erosion
Continued from page 5

Mayor Dan Dodge abstain-
ing due to a conflict of inter-
est.
Puleri favored the beach
project but disputed the
discount given the Hillsboro
Club, a private resort next to
the Hillsboro Inlet managed by
Dodge.
The Club was assessed for
only three-quarters of its 144
units because the units are ho-
tel rooms, smaller than condo
units and lacking full living
amenities. Puleri said that is-
sue had angered many people.
Supporting the Club's
discount, Commissioner Lee
Bennett said it was approved
by the commission to ward off
a lawsuit.
"We had every reason to
believe if we had charged a
room as much as a house, we
could expect a lawsuit. It was
a choice we had to make to
move the project along," Ben-
nett said. Faced with a roomful
of people who disagreed with
the project, Bennett added,
"We received a petition from
500 people who wanted the
renourishment."
To charges that Hillsboro
officials had ignored other
government agencies that
might have had other solu-
tions, Mayor Carmen McGarry
said the two-year, "extremely
difficult process" included
every governmental level.
"There is a tremendous
amount of misinformation out
there."
Many of the speakers op-
posing the assessment saw
no need for the nourishment
project at all. Most severely
affected is the north beach
where, in some places, erosion
is eating away property and
threatening buildings.
"My decision is based
on what's happening to my
neighbors to the north," Ben-
nett said. "My job is to worry
about the whole town."
Commissioner Celinda Saw-
telle agreed. "Sand is our only
option. We don't have a town
without the beach. We ex-
pect lower bids and the extra
money can go back into your
pockets or for future beaches.
You can decide."











Nashville food program inspires Oakland Park Kiwanis Club


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
A food aid organization
in Tennessee has inspired
Oakland Park Kiwanis Club
members to start their own
program.
Sharon Tobias, Oakland
Park Kiwanis Club member,
says her daughter recently saw
country musician Wynonna
Judd on The Oprah Winfrey
Show talking about Backpack
Mission Ministries, Inc., an
organization that donates
backpacks filled with food to
needy children in Appalachia.
"We kind of took it and
adapted it to our situation. I
mentioned it to Rick [Melillo,
president elect of Kiwanis]
and our president [Dennis
Buchta] and their ears perked
up," said Tobias. "Within two
weeks we were off and run-
ning," said Melillo.
The backpacks, filled with
cereal, macaroni and cheese,
rice, spaghetti, black beans,
ravioli and "whatever the
club brings in," said Melillo,
are provided to students, and
their families, at Oakland Park
Elementary and Lloyd Estates
Elementary every week. Ki-
wanis started with one family

Times may be tight, but
Wilton Manors small business
owners looking to improve
their "curb appeal" can turn to
CAAB for possible financial
assistance.
The Wilton Manors Com-
munity Affairs Advisory
Board, or CAAB, provides up
to $1,000 in matching grants
through its Small Business
Assistance Grant program.
CAAB member Sherrill
McCarthy says it's all about
giving back and "feeding"
money back into the city. "It's
a way to give back to the busi-
nesses that do so much for our
community."
So far this year, CAAB
hasn't had any applicants. But
CAAB member Bill Rich-
ardson says he will make it a
point to talk to business own-
ers and let them know about
the available money.
"I feel as a member of
CAAB it is incumbent on us
to go out and let businesses
know we have this money
available," said Richardson.
In the past, CAAB has pro-
vided grants to organizations,
businesses, neighborhood as-
sociations and city events.
Last October CAAB pro-
vided $2,000 to help fund a
mural on Wilton Discount


and now the program feeds 34
people.
"The idea of putting it in
the backpack is to be discreet
about it. So the kid doesn't
kid doesn't get laughed at or
made fun of," said Buchta.


Recently, HSBC Bank do-
nated $500 "for this extraordi-
narily worthy program," said
Jean Nevin, vice president and
manager at HSBC in Pom-
pano Beach and vice president
of Oakland Park Kiwanis.

Liquor & Wine, located
behind Jaycee Park on Wilton
Drive. Main Street used the
grant to purchase paint and
hire two artists. "We couldn't
have done it [without it]," said
Main Street Vice President
Diane Cline.
CAAB has also provided
money for a landscaping
project across from Wilton
Manors Elementary School, a
dead end beautification proj-
ect on Northwest 30 Court,
and a matching grant to The
Joshua Tree furniture store on
Andrews Avenue, to camou-
flage a dumpster "so people
just don't see a dumpster from


the street," said Richardson.
Kiwanis Club Kids Day,
Taste of the Island, Adopt
a Class at Wilton Manors
Elementary and the annual
Holiday Lighting Pageant
were also grant recipients.
Business grant applicants
must be undertaking a proj-
ect that can be seen from the
street.
If an application is ap-
proved, CAAB will reimburse
the grant after the project has
been completed and inspect-
ed. For more information
about CAAB grants, go to
www.wiltonmanors.com and
click on the City Boards link.


Melillo says the money will
be used next school year. Al-
though members were happy
to get the donation, they say
food items are preferable.
"Once we started it people
started bringing in food and
now everyone in the club is
looking for two-for-one sales
at Albertsons or Publix," said
Buchta. Diane Durham, who
founded Backpack Mission


Ministries four years ago, says
she's praying Kiwanis has as
much success as her program.
Asked how she felt about
her program inspiring oth-
ers, "I think that's awesome.
That's exactly what it's all
about. The whole purpose to
see that every hungry child in
America is taken care of."

Kiwanis, call 954-566-4114.

Parking
Continued from page 4
option 2 because it's the
"most fiscally sound and pro-
vides the most parking" for
the investment.
Vice Mayor Justin Flippen
said parking was an issue
before he was elected and
"59 spaces does not solve the
parking problem."
Commissioners voiced op-
position to making taxpayers
foot the bill. "I'm not raising
taxes to pay for a parking
garage," said Mayor Gary
Resnick. City Manager Joseph
Gallegos says revenue from
existing parking spaces will
have to be used to pay for a
new lot or garage.
Asked about possible
financing from a bank, Bob
Mays, assistance finance de-
partment director, says banks
will probably want to see at
least three to six months of
revenue stream data from the
new parking enforcement plan
set to start on April 1.
Resnick is optimistic the
city can find a bank willing
to lend. "These banks would
love to loan to cities because
no one else is borrowing."
Mays said banks might
accept current revenue data,
compiled over the last couple
years, but "bankers are very
conservative and they prob-
ably want to see a few months
of the new data." Green says
six months is too long to wait.


AIDS Walk

Team Sidelines will be hold-
ing a car wash to raise money

Bar, 2031-A Wilton Drive,

Voters in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea seek candidates who will bring

reason, dignity and efficiency back into the legislative process


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Lauderdale-By-The Sea, a
seaside municipality of 6,500
local residents and over 7,000
winter residents, has had a
rough two years of local gov-
ernment.
Long meetings that had to
be extended to the following
day, repeated angst on the
dais, challenges from resi-


dents to officials and threats
of lawsuits against the town
make this race important.
The main economy in this
small town is based on tour-
ism.
LBTS is known for its
quaint hotels, superior diving
areas, dining and its beach.
Three years ago, the town
was divided as to whether its
newly annexed section in the
northern area should have the


Roseann Minnet,

incumbent candidate for mayor
What is the most critical concern
you are hearing from voters as
you campaign?
Dissension in town and the an-
ger. We have to come to some sort
of compromise and get along.
What do you see as the biggest
problem facing the town and how
would you fix it?
Communication. Lack of respect
and communication, mainly from
the dais, but it's filtering into resi-
dents. I know I've been respectful,
but I'm one voice. I was a minority and am still the minority.
Respect starts at the top. I will continue to treat everyone
respectfully. I represent everyone and will listen to everyone
and make sure their voice is heard. I'm only for the residents
of the town.
Commission meetings frequently run for many hours
and over two days. What can be done to shorten meetings
to a reasonable time?
We've seen how they can be shortened with one com-
missioner not in attendance. There's a noticeable differ-
ence when he isn't there. (She referred to Vice Mayor Jerry
McIntee.) We need to stick to the agenda and policy and not
personal attacks. There are constant interruptions. I'm not
in favor of limiting public comments. Freedom of speech is
See MINNETpage 27



Jim Silverstone, incumbent
candidate, commission, District
2
What is the most critical con-
cern you are hearing from voters
as you campaign?
People are turned off by the ten-
sion and disrespect shown at town
meetings. It's embarrassing. Every
two years we have an organiza-
tional meeting to set the rules. We
said we wouldn't allow personal
attacks of those on the dais or
staff members. But the mayor has
allowed it, and by allowing groups
of people to attack us and the town staff, (the meetings)
have become like a sporting event. It's festered hate, caused
intentionally to have a solution of new candidates. I've been
called a bum and a liar and have had to sit and listen. She al-
lows it to happen, and it creates anger. We're not getting the
business of the town done. It wouldn't be allowed in other
chambers.
What do you see as the biggest problem facing the town
and how would you fix it?
Pretty much the same as above. And some promises made
during annexation couldn't be kept. For example, (the town)
providing sewers for the private Palm Club wasn't legal and
shouldn't have been promised. And originally, we said the
See SILVERSTONE page 30


same building height limita-
tions as the rest of the town.
In a bitterly fought cam-
paign, the voters approved
a referendum calling for a
4-story height limit to be town
wide.
That led to four property
owners to file Bert J. Harris
claims, a law that protects
property owners from losing
property value due to a legis-
lative or zoning change.


If the claims are approved
by a court, the town faces a
multi-million dollar law suit.
If the four property own-
ers win their lawsuits, other
property owners affected by
the referendum could follow
with more claims. But dis-
sension at town hall meetings
have caused more than angst
with arguments and costly
time-consuming ratings from
the dais and the public. Long


Joseph Couriel,
candidate for mayor
What is the most critical concern you are hearing from
voters as you campaign?
The most critical concern is the
lack of respect, lack of decorum
and civility and lack of unity at
commission meetings. The town
was never this way before. Every-
one used to get along. Even when
people disagreed, they were civil.
Those who pay attention don't like
what they see.
What do you see as the biggest
problem facing the town and how
would you fix it?
The biggest problem facing the town is special interests
that would like to see current safeguards against overde-
velopment be watered down and go back to the time when
overlay districts were promoted for overdevelopment of
certain areas. They would like to see height restrictions in
the north end done away with.
Commission meetings frequently run for many hours
and over two days. What can be done to shorten meetings
to a reasonable time?
Public comments have to be controlled. They can't run
on for hours and hours. Personal attacks cannot be toler-
ated. Issues need to be addressed that are on the agenda.
Perhaps we should go back to a system of a half hour of
See COURIEL page 25



Chris Vincent, candidate for com-

mission, District 2
What is the most critical concern you are hearing from
voters as you campaign?
Obviously, the sentiment of
what has transpired on the dais.
There's a concern for decorum
and respect, which is not happen-
ing from elected officials down
to residents. Communication is
not there with two commission-
ers, my opponent Jim Silverstone,
and Jerry McIntee. There's also
concern over the way many of
our contracts have been awarded.
There's been a problem with not
reading them correctly or sending out RFPs (requests for
proposals) incorrectly.
What do you see as the biggest problem facing the town
and how would you fix it?
My biggest concern is our drainage. We have a drainage
study happening now. I hope we would take the results and
implement them on a priority basis and move forward in
reconciling those problems.
Commission meetings frequently run for several hours
and over two days. What can be done to shorten meetings
to a reasonable time?
More civility. And commissioners coming to meetings
having reviewed the backup materials, so they know what

and extended meetings have
already cost taxpayers by
causing some employees to
have overtime salaries.
Voters on both sides are
determined to end the gov-
ernment marathons and will
choose their candidates based
on the need for a more effi-
cient legislative process. Here
are the candidate responses to
The Pelican questions on this
March 9 election.
Pelican writer, Judy Vik,
interviewed the candidates.

added the final figures come

the initial report has proved
quite accurate. In Pompano

sent a $2 billion reduction in

edge."
At the commission's re-

Development Director Jerry
Ferguson laid out a three-


stage plan for achieving a new
downtown in the one-mile
swath along Dixie Highway
south of the Hillsboro Canal.
Sprucing up Deerfield's

said.
In 1999, a series of work-
shops identified four areas
in the city that needed atten-
tion including the downtown.
Change came or is coming to
three of the areas: the Dixie
Highway Corridor which was
newly designated as the Dixie
Business Residential Zone,
The Cove Shopping Center
and the beach, but except for
two small facade improve-
ments near City Hall, no one
has come forward to invest in
downtown. Public money was
used to add the clock tower
and landscaping to city hall.
"The lynchpin is the flyover.
Now it's here and there is no
definitive plan for the future,"
Klopp said.
The area of study suggested
by staff, south of the Hillsboro
Canal to Southeast 4 Street
and east of Dixie to Southeast
2 Avenue, was expanded to
include the west side of Dixie
Highway at the request of
Vice Mayor Sylvia Poitier and
Commissioner Bill Ganz.
The flyover design is also
necessitating changes to the
Pioneer Park Master Plan,
Ferguson said. Originally the
plan called for a boat ramp
and parking underneath the
flyover, but FDOT could not
acquire land for that purpose.


Ferguson said commission-
ers need to come up with a
20-year vision, divided into
three parts: one-to-five years,
five to 10 years, 10 to 20
years.
Future workshops will
include representatives from
the Metropolitan Planning Or-
ganization, or MPO, and the
Florida East Coast Railroad
where a study is now being
done on passenger travel on
those tracks.
Ferguson said once a vision
is established, a strategic plan
to encourage development in
accord with the vision will be
put in place.
Saying that he was going
after "the low hanging fruit,"
Klopp presented the 10 things
that can quickly be accom-
plished to enhance the down-
town area suggesting there
may be tax credits, grants and
other public money available.
"We need to break the cycle
of disinvestment," he said.
He called his observations
"a newcomer's perspective"
and not an attack on current
policies.
Klopp showed the com-
missioners slides of unkempt
swales, broken sidewalks and
unenforced signs and then
told them to vote their priori-
ties.

saying an amphitheater or a

to the area and draw the com-

Miller said.
At the next session, prob-
ably in April, the commission
will be asked to look at the
area as a blank slate. "Think

them.

BSO says so far it has identi-
fied at least five victims and
expects more be found.
Oakland Park BSO Detec-
tive Brian Rupp says someone
who buys from doctor shop-
pers was supplying the two
men with pills. "They were
shooting them up as quickly
as they got them," said Rupp.
BSO says Kevin James Ku-
binec, who allegedly robbed
two convenience stores on
Feb. 20 in Pompano Beach,
also admitted to stealing in
order to feed his prescrip-
tion habit. Kubinec is being
charged with armed robbery.
"Prescription drug abuse is


the new crack cocaine epi-
demic. It's legalized narcotic
distribution on an epic propor-
tion," said Oakland Park BSO
Chief John Bukata. "They do
what they have to do to keep
up with their habit."
In 2009, according to
statistics recently released by
BSO, a total of 948 prescrip-
tion drug related arrests were
made compared to only 60 in
2008. "Now we're into the
hundreds, just in Oakland
Park," said Bukata.
Oakland Park had the third
highest number of arrests
[202] compared to Deerfield
Beach [333] and Pompano

Beach [257].
Bukata says BSO has had to
increase patrols of neighbor-
hoods near prescription pain
clinics because of complaints
of clinic customers wandering
neighborhoods, defecating in
residents' yards and blocking
streets with their vehicles.
A report issued by a Bro-
ward County grand jury last
year, found that the number
of pain clinics in the county
grew from four to 115 in the
past two years. The report also
estimates that, in a six-month
period, nine million oxyco-
done pills were dispensed by
clinics.
Last November, the Oak-
land Park commissioners, in
response to an increase in the
number of pain management
clinics in the city, unanimous-
ly passed a 180-day morato-
rium on new clinics.
Bukata says that although
city officials are letting BSO
"do our jobs," in terms of
enforcement, "we're years
behind where we should be."
BSO has also taken a proac-
tive approach to prescription
abuse by initiating Operation
Medicine Cabinet, designed
to eliminate unnecessary or
unwanted prescription drugs
and prevent possible abuse by
teens or others.
Recent Medicine Cabinet
events, held in Pompano
Beach, Cooper City and Oak-
land Park, have brought in
over to 20,000 pills. Par-
ticipants who donate their
unwanted drugs get a $5 gift
card to either CVS or Wal-
Mart.
"I want parents and grand-
parents in Broward County
to be aware of this growing
prescription drug epidemic,"
said Sheriff Al Lamberti.
"These take-back programs
help you protect your children
by ensuring unused medica-
tions aren't left in medicine
cabinets." BSO also recently
released a new public service
announcement and new edu-
cational materials regarding
prescription drug abuse.
The next Operation Medi-
cine Cabinet event will be on
March 6 from 9 a.m. to noon
at the BSO substation, 580 S.
Powerline Rd., in Deerfield
Beach. Visit www.sheriff.
org/safety/operation_medi-
cine_cabinet for more infor-
mation.

What are your views on
height limits? Did you vote
for height restrictions that
led to Burt J. Harris claims?
Would you be willing to
reverse height limits to
minimize the liability of the
claims?
I voted for the 2006
referendum that set height
limits, and I stand for the
current height limits. No
commission can change that
without a vote of the people.
I wouldn't personally want
to change anything. There's
nothing we can do because of
the litigation brought forward.
How would you describe
your vision of a perfect LBTS
and what would you do to
achieve it?
I would like to see more
harmony throughout the town.
We all have the same goals of
having the quaint, beautiful
seaside village we moved here
to enjoy and love. I would
like to see the town continue
to flourish, the people united,
and the businesses thrive. We
need to help our businesses'N

PELICAN WRITER
"I come here almost every
day. They have really good
food. It is one of the best kept
secrets in town," says John
Deangelis, a local resident
who is also a loyal customer
of Paradise Diner.
Over the past 11 years,
this friendly diner has been
serving up tasty breakfast and
lunch specialties to thousands
of locals and visitors alike.
"Our customers come back
again and again because
we have great food at very
affordable prices," says Elvia
Castellon, who, along with her
sister Rosa, have owned and
operated this unpretentious
eatery since the late 90s.
To start the day off with a
wholesome meal, Paradise
Diner offers a host of
tantalizing options such as
filling omelettes, breakfast
sandwiches, bagels, chipped
beef, Belgian waffles,
pancakes, country fried
steak, French toast and eggs
Benedict.
"I have been cooking
professionally for 22
years and make absolutely
everything fresh myself," says
Elvia who takes care of food
preparation while sibling Rosa
attends to customers.


"Unlike most places, our
French toast is made with
light and fluffy Challah bread.
We dry our own beef for the
chipped beef dish and even
our biscuits and gravy are
homemade," asserts Rosa
with great enthusiasm.
It is clear that this family
business has thrived thanks
to the combination of fresh
ingredients, savvy cooking,
low prices and friendly
service.
"Our breakfast meals start
at $2.25," says Rosa as she
presents the long list of
specials.
One of the most popular
plates is the Big Two featuring
two eggs, two pancakes and
two sausage links or bacon
strips for $4.50. Add an order
of French toast if your hunger
warrants it.
Three large eggs are used
for omelettes and just about
every dish is served with
potatoes or grits, toast and
jelly. Refills are free and
substitutions are allowed for a

small supplement.
To accompany eggs any
style, the meat selection
includes bacon, ham, sausage
links and patties, corned beef
hash, Canadian bacon, gyro
meat, smoked sausage and
hamburger patties.
For those with a serious
appetite, NY strip steak and
golden pork chops can be
enjoyed as well.
The Nova Lox Deluxe bagel
sandwich with cream cheese,
lettuce, tomato, cucumber and
onions is another fan favorite.
Be sure to try one of the many
refreshing juices and sweet
breads, also available.
At lunchtime, the focus
shifts to healthy soups, salads,
sandwiches and hot platters.
"All our lunch specials are
$5.99 and include a soup
or salad and a beverage. It
is really a great deal," says
Rosa.
The salad options feature
the flavorful chicken Caesar,
the Greek, the Gyro, the Tuna
or even the straightforward
Chef's salad.
The sandwich list
encompasses the chicken
Philly, the roast beef, the


turkey melt, the cheeseburger
and the BLT amongst many
others. The hot platters
include such stalwarts as
spaghetti and meatballs, pork
chops, country fried steak,
chicken wings and roast
turkey.
Most also come with
potatoes and vegetables.
The soups, such as the
homemade chicken noodle
variety, are rich and flavorful.
This sizeable restaurant,
with its two pool tables and
powerful speaker system,
can also be rented for parties,
banquets, receptions or any
other function requiring
ample space and plenty of
free parking.
To eat in or take out,
Paradise Diner is a tasty and
cost-effective meal solution
conveniently located at
the corer of South Dixie
and Southwest 6 Street in
Pompano Beach.
Be sure to also enjoy a $1
beer or $3 wine glass during
your next visit.


The turkey sandwich is loaded with juicy and tender turkey breast slices. With
choice of bread, soup or salad, a beverage and a side of fries or mashed potatoes
for $5.99.

comments on agenda items
and the rest speaking at the
end of the meeting. The time
for commissioners to speak
~lould be controlled to twice
on each issue. They love to
hear the sound of their voice,
and the business of the town
suffers.
Voters approved townwide
height limits in a referendum
in 2006, resulting in four
BurtJ. Harris claims of
$20.9 million against the
town. (The town has filed a
motion to dismiss the claims.)
Did you vote for height
restrictions? And would you
be willing to reverse height
limits to minimize the liability
of Burt J. Harris claims?
Not only did I vote for
the referendum, I was very
instrumental in gathering
signatures to put the
referendum on the ballot and
very aggressively campaigned


for its approval. As a founding
member of the Citizens
Initiative Committee, I was
one that took those actions.
We needed to be sure that
only a vote of the people, not
the commission, could change
height limits.
There is a clause in the
charter that citizens can vote
to repeal the amendment.
How would you describe your
vision of a perfect LBTS and
what would you do to achieve
it?
I see a vibrant, younger
community in the next five
to 10 years. I want to see
a town where, when you
drive in, you know you're in
a different place. I want to
create that wow factor with an
atmosphere of cheerfulness
and excitement. I'd like to
see outdoor dining along
Commercial Boulevard from
the beach to the bridge. We
need to improve the town's
appearance, increase real
estate values and attract more
people to live here.

If you could choose a
question for me to ask, what
would it be?
I'd like voters to be sure
they choose people who
have experience and a track
record. They should have
someone represent them who
has contributed to the town,
not just newcomers who have
never participated in anything.
We can't afford to have
people who say one thing and
do another. Two years ago my
opponent had totally different
answers than what she does
now. When you have no
record, you can say whatever
you want.

Wilton Manors' Pride Center grand

opening "a long time coming"


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
It was a "long time coming"
but The Pride Center at
Equality Park reached its new
destination.
"This has been a long time
coming. It's been a hard
road," said Dale Russell,
president of Pride Center.
The Pride Center at Equality
Park, formerly the Gay and
Lesbian Community Center of
South Florida, held its grand
opening on Feb. 12 at its new
location, 2040 N. Dixie Hwy.,
in Wilton Manors "Something
very special is happening
here," said Paul Hyman,
executive director of Pride
Center.
Founded in 1994 by gay
philanthropist Alan Schubert,
Pride Center was originally
located on Andrews Avenue
in Fort Lauderdale, just south
of Wilton Manors. Seeking


a venue with more space
to expand its impact on the
gay, lesbian, bisexual and
transgender community,
or GLBT, the new site
encompasses five acres and
has 35,000 sq. ft. of space for
offices and programs.
We as a GLBT community
and our supporters deserve the
best... and the community
around us deserves the best
that we have to offer," said
Hyman.


Elected officials, including
Broward County Mayor
Ken Keechl, the entire
Wilton Manors Commission,
Oakland Park Commissioner
Anthony Niedwicki, Fort
Lauderdale Vice Mayor
Bruce Roberts and Rebecca
Baer, a representative from
Congressman Ron Klein's
office, attended the ribbon
cutting. Wilton Manors Police
Chief Richard Perez and

very important. Residents
should be able to express
themselves in an open forum.
Some people feel you have
allowed other commissioners
to control the meetings. Do
you agree? What is your
response to that criticism?
No, I have thrown people
out of meetings. At our
first organizational meeting
they took away many of my
powers. They changed the
rules, and I abided by their
rules. They said everyone
could speak. I've tried to stop
certain people on the dais but
have been overruled by them.
I brought up limiting how
often commissioners could
speak, but they voted it down.
I've brought up solutions, and
they vote them down.
What are your views on
height limits? Did you vote
for the height restrictions
that led to the Burt J. Harris
claims? Would you be willing
to reverse height limits to


minimize the liability of the
Burt J. Harris claims?
Height limits are in the
charter. I did not vote for
them. I knew they would
perpetuate Burt J. Harris
claims, and they did. Only a
vote of the people can change
the limits. That's not a vote
the commission can take.
How would you describe
your vision of a perfect LBTS
and what would you do to
achieve it?
I'm not sure there's a
perfect anything. My vision
is of a community that
gets along. We can have a
positive outlook as long as we
don't have two newspapers
constantly battling with each
other. We may not always
agree, but we agree we want
the best for our town.
If you could choose a
question for me to ask, what
would it be?
Lots of people are asking
what separates me from my
opponent. I have the ability to
take the high road. I represent
everyone.

lifelong resident of the
city living in Collier City.
Brummer has raised $17,000
in campaign contributions.
Jones, 63, said he is doing
more campaigning than
fundraising.
"If my funds represented
my campaign, I'd not be in
the race," he said this week.
Neither candidate is willing
to say how he stands on what
could be the city's biggest
campaign issue: whether
or to retain BSO and sign a
new contract or re-establish
the Pompano Beach Police
Department.
Another major piece of
business this year, although
not in the district, is the $15
million bond issue being sold
to make major improvements


on the east side.
Commissioners will be
making major decisions about
the fishing pier and a public


parking garage. District 5 has
about 20,000 voters living
in Palm-Aire, Cypress Bend,
John Knox Village, Collier

George Brummer, commis-

sioner incumbent for Dist. 5
George Brummer, 78, has been active in the city since
moving here 25 years ago.
When the BSO contract first came up, Brummer says
he thought it the best way to go. Now he is not sure and
said he depending on the numbers the sheriff presents
compared to the numbers city staff produces.
His decision will be influenced on the bases of cost,
Brummer said. Brummer supports the land use changes
requested by Capri Casino, owners of the racetrack and
Isle casino as long as traffic improvements are made to the
area.
The developer plans to develop 90 acres with homes, a
hotel and restaurant and a condominium. In Collier City,
Brummer believes there is now movement there in the
NW CRA and shares the residents' concerns that things are
not happening there fast enough. He is a retired insurance
executive.


Johnny Jones, candidate for

Dist. 5
Johnny Jones, 63, has been watching city government
closely for a number of years and wants voters to know
that he is "an agent for change." Change, he said, would
give more people "an incentive to stand up." Jones says he
is running on more fiscal responsibility on the part of the
commission and wants to see more monitoring of where
funds are being spent, not just in the NW CRA which
encompasses Collier City. "I care.about the city," he said.
"I believe in people in Pompano Beach from one district
to the other." The main plank in his platform is unification,
he said. "There are solutions to the issues if we can put the
city first," he said.
On the BSO matter, Jones said he doesn't feel he has
enough facts to make a decision.
Jones is a teacher with the Broward County School
District and pastor at United Glorious Church of Christ in
Ft. Lauderdale.


Marjorie Evans,

candidate for commission

in District 1
What is the most critical concern you are hearing from
voters as you campaign?
The most critical thing is
voters feel arguments are H-
getting in the way of town' i "
business. They don't know who '
to believe.
What do you see as the
biggest problem facing the
town and how would you fix K-. "
it?
There are a.few problems.
The pavilion on Commercial
Boulevard needs to be fixed.
We need toilets (at the pavilion), so the public has access
to toilets. We need to change two ordinances. One prevents
people from doing sidewalk cafes. The other prevents
small motels and hotels on the beach from becoming
bed and breakfasts. We need to repair sidewalks and get
infrastructure work completed.
Commission meetings frequently run for several hours
and over two days. What can be done to shorten meetings
to a reasonable time?
The commission needs to move more quickly on agenda
items. Sometimes agenda items have hidden agendas. They
should stick to the items that will move the town ahead.
If they don't like the manager, they should do a meeting,
evaluate her and put it behind them. The snide, snipey
stuff needs to stop. My colleagues ask, "Are you crazy,
getting in the middle of that?" The two factions fighting is
unproductive. Those making public comments to do with
personalities and ethnic remarks should be removed.
You have mentioned several times your ability to get
grants for the town. Do you think grants should be used
as a way to balance the town's budget?
I would like to see grants balance the budget. Energy
could be better applied by seeing what could help us rather
than the personal in-fighting. Let's work toward positive,
achievable goals. They may never like each other, but let's
get off that.
What are your views on height limits? Did you vote for
them in the referendum?
I voted for the referendum because of density issues.
Getting on A1A in season is really tough. Condo residents
want us to deal with traffic and infrastructure.
How would you describe your vision of a perfect LBTS
and what would you do to achieve it?
A perfect LBTS would be if we would all come together,
See EVANS page 35


Scot Sasser, candidate for

commission in District 1
What is the most critical concern you are hearing from
voters as you campaign?
The most critical concern is a
lack of professionalism on the
dais, as well as personal agendas
and personal attacks. And town
business is not getting done.
What do you see as the biggest "
problem facing the town and
how would you fix it?
There are a couple. I'm all for
a code of ethics and personal
code of conduct I want all
commissioners to sign. After
that, managing town business in a more structured
manner and having an overall strategic plan. We have
been piecemealing everything. What we end up with is
failed, piecemealed projects. To prevent that, the first
thing I want to do is get a strategic plan. We have a master
plan, but it's old, and I don't know if it can be used. Dust
that thing off. Then get back to the Master Plan Steering
Committee and get input from residents. Get a plan down
and then start prioritizing and phasing in projects we want
to work on instead of piecemealing everything.
Commission meetings frequently run for several
hours and over two days? What can be done to shorten
meetings to a reasonable time?
A code of conduct will help that greatly. I will bring
my professionalism and experience in business to cut
down on personal things that tend to make meetings go
too long. Once a plan is in place, we can prioritize what
we want to work on with everyone on the same page for a
goal. It won't be just a potpourri of agenda items but very
structured.
What are your views on height limits? Did you vote for
height restrictions that led to the Burt J. Harris claims?
And would you be willing to reverse height limits to
minimize the liability of the claims?
Height restrictions have been voted on by the people,
and the commission can't control them whatsoever.
Only the people can change them. That's where the
responsibility should be. I support where the height limits
are today. (As to the question about reversing the limits), I
don't know that that's an answer. It's not prudent for me to
answer until I sit in with the legal team.
How would you describe your vision of a perfect LBTS
and what would you do to achieve it?
I would achieve it by having an overall plan,
maintaining heights and ocean views and a balance

North would keep the
Broward Sheriff's Office Fire
Department and Old Town
would keep the Volunteer Fire
Department and pay for it. It
wasn't done.
Commission meetings
frequently run for several
hours and over two days
costing taxpayers in staff
salaries. What can be done
to shorten meetings to a
reasonable time?
Controlling public
comments would help. Some
of those commenting could
call a commissioner instead.
We've gone over 40-some
code changes to unify the
town, and it took a lot of
time. Most of the comments
were attacks. If we'd follow
the rules set in place, a lot of
time would have been saved.
We shouldn't limit the time
of commissioners' comments.
I'd rather get it right than
take shortcuts. People look at
issues in different ways.
Recently, during your
commissioner comments,
you have been challenging
residents to debate. Why is
that important? Some don't
think you should be doing
that from the dais.
They're bringing up
questions and issues but only
bringing one side. You can't
come up with the right answer
unless you hear both sides.
I was accused of wasting
$300,000 in pre-payment
penalties (when the town paid
a loan back early.) We actually
saved $600,000. I offered to
debate people publicly but
never got any response.
Where do you stand on
height limits? Did you vote
for them? Would you be
willing to reverse height
limits to minimize the liability
of the Burt J. Harris claims?
(Four Burt J. Harris claims
have been filed against
the town because of the
referendum on height limits.


The town has filed a motion
to dismiss the suits and is
waiting for a hearing.)
I stand where the town
currently is. A referendum
was passed setting limits at a
maximum of 44 feet. I support
keeping the town special.
It's easier to go up and more
difficult to improve the
quality of life. I believe the
lawsuits will be found to be
non-applicable.
How would you describe
your vision of a perfect LBTS
and what would you do to
achieve it?
When you come over the
bridge or drive into town on
A1A, you should have the
aesthetic feeling that you are


someplace special. My vision
would involve reinstilling
pride in the community,
keeping taxes down while
keeping services high. I would
create a pleasant experience
for tourists, guests and
especially for residents who
call this beautiful place home.
If you could choose a
question for me to ask, what
would it be?
That's a good one. Why am
I running again? What's left to
achieve? Beautification of the
town has not been met, and
I want to pursue that.What
can I bring to the town that
my opponent can't? I kept the
promises I made and did what
I said I was going to do.

MAKING THE CEREC CHOICE


CEREC (Chairside Economical
Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is
CAD/CAM technology that utilizes a
camera, computer, and milling machine
to fabricate a precise tooth-colored,
single-tooth restoration. This advanced
computerized technique enables the
dentist to create inlays, onlays, and full
crowns in a single office visit without
impressions, temporaries, or second
office visits. This is accomplished by
using a special camera to take a picture
of the damaged tooth, the image of which
is then displayed on a screen. The dentist
next uses CAD (Computer Aided Design)
technology to design a restoration that is
then milled from porcelain using CAM
(Computer Aided Manufacturing)
technology. Within one hour, the patient
can enjoy a beautifully restored tooth.

Fishing and Seaside Sports


Pompano Beach fishing fleet hits doldrums as economic

outlook dims, but these anglers know how to wait it out

By Anne Siren .F Ij y


PELICAN STAFF
On Tuesday, low clouds hovered
against a grey sky over Pompano
Beach.
The fish don't seem to mind what
the clouds do or whether the sky is
blue, gray or red.
But the tourists mind. They were not
fishing on this day.
Fortunately for Captain John
Whitelaw and his deep sea fishing
boat, Quetzal, there were plenty of
chores to fill up the day. Boats demand
a lot of attention.
He says things have "... been on
the slow side. Slower than last year.
Whether it's the economy or the
weather, it's just much slower."
The Pompano Beach Fishing Fleet,
docked at the Hillsboro Inlet, 2705 N.
Riverside Dr., hails two drift-fishing
boats, eight charter boats and Sea Tow.
Situated at the Inlet under the
shadow of the Hillsboro Lighthouse,
these fleet captains offer some of the
best fishing the Atlantic Ocean offers.
Captain Craig Gordon, Offsides, a
charter boat, had a better day.
Said Gordon, "I had some young
men out this morning. They had come
See FLEET page 32


Crisp and ready for a day trip or night fishing, captains at the Hillsboro Inlet Marina, the home of the Pompano Beach FIshing Fleet, awaits those ready
to fish and enjoy the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. [Photo by Bob Saley]

down for the Daytona 500 and
wanted to wind up the trip
with some fishing," he said.
It's hard to tell if the
laid-back jargen from these
captains represents the job or
the signs of these times.
Anglers are known for
patience when it comes
to the catch. But as to the
economy, that patience may
be stretched. Says Gordon,
"We're the canary in the gold
mine." He says economic
times have made it difficult
for anglers to find funds to
spend a day at sea. Gordon
blames the bad times on
former Vice President Dick
Cheney, whom he believes
had a part in getting oil prices
up to $4 per gallon.
"The high gas prices were
the beginning of the collapse
of the economy."
He says times were better
when families could earn
decent wages and afford
vacations. Everybody did OK
when we had steel workers.
Then the union jobs left the
country, so we have less
traffic. Charter boat fishing
is for people with disposable
incomes."
Most charters begin at $550
for one-half day for up to
six people. "We get a lot of
couples," says Gordon. "They
split the cost." Gordon adds
that its tough to compete with
cities like Fort Lauderdale
where hotels are plentiful and
high percentages are paid to
hotel concierges for charter
boat recommendations to
hotel guests. Chad Svercek
has been a charter captain for
15 years and has captained
fishing tournaments all over
the world.
"I do see a light a the end
of the tunnel," he says. "I
make enough money to make
a living. I love going to work
every morning."
Besides taking anglers to
fishing holes in the ocean,
these captains offer something
else. Locals know that a trip
to the fleet is the best way to
pick up fresh catches where
the fish is cleaned at the dock
and sold at competitive prices.
Pompano Beach Mayor
Lamar Fisher says the fleet

is one of the city's greatest
assets. "We worked very hard
to get the fleet back to its
original space at the inlet,"
he said. The fleet was moved
from its present location in the
early 80s after the land was
purchased by a developer, Jim
Stephanis and his brother, to
build a condominium and a
new Yardarm Restaurant.
The project eventually
fell into bankruptcy, and
the city purchased the land.
One parcel has since been
developed as a passive park
across from the Lighthouse.
The second parcel was
developed for the fishing
fleet.
After negotiations, the city
leased the entire western
portion on the inside of the
Inlet Bridge to the Hillsboro
Captain's Association for an
annual cost of $17,500 with a
three percent annual increase.
Now, some captains are
hoping the city will waive the
three percent increase until
the economy recovers.
Gordon added that the
Association has been
considering joining the
Pompano Beach Chamber
of Commerce to get in on its
marketing plans.
Fisher, who recently
initiated a local "Stimulus"
package for the city, said
another marketing strategy is


in early stages to market the
entire city. That program is in
association with the chamber
as well. "The fleet is part and
parcel of this marketing," said
Fisher. Elaine Fitzgerald, who
chairs the tourism task force
for the chamber is another fan
of the fleet. Fitzgerald is the
owner of Beach Vacations, a
group of five small vacation
lodgings near A1A in
Pompano Beach.
"The fishing fleet is one
of the main attractions of the
city," she says. "I always tell
my guests where they are and
when they can go to the dock
to buy fresh fish. We also
carry their brochures at our
cottages."
She adds that joining the
chamber would be a good step
for the fleet. Catch the fleet at
954-943-8222.

The Pelican 33


Weekly
Fishing
Report

By RJ Boyle
RJ BOYLE BAIT AND TACKLE
Near Shore Report
Covering the beach and inlet
areas
Snook and tarpon fishing
has been decent over the past
week. Snook seem to get a
little finicky during this time
of the year. There is not a lot
of bait in the inlets right now
so don't be afraid to use very
small baits.
Shrimp and small pilchards
seem to be the bait of choice.
When using these small
baits remember to scale your
tackle back. Light lines and
fluorocarbon leaders will give
you an edge.
Over the last week we have
seen a lot of large sheepshead
around the docks and on the
sand. Crabs and sand fleas.
would be the bait of choice.
Offshore Report
Covering the inshore reefs


from 40feet out to 25 miles
Offshore fishing has been
somewhat tough this last
week. We are starting to see
a few bonitos and kingfish
on the inshore reefs. Sailfish
have been tough to come by.
Boats targeting sailfish seem
to be getting one or two shots
per day.
The best sail fishing has
occurred north of Palm Beach
and south around Miami.
Wreck fishing should be good
for cobia over the next few
weeks as they continue to
migrate to the south.
Goggle eyes and pinfish
fished on the bottom would
be my bait of choice coupled
with very sharp hooks
Swordfishing was excellent
earlier in the week as
numerous fish were caught
in the 80 to 150 lb range.


One large fish was caught by
"Weekly Rehab" tipping the
scale at 4511bs.
The bite has slowed a little
over the last two days but can
turn on at any time during this
time of the year. If you can
find a nice weather window
take a shot. My suggestion for
the week would be Dolphin
from 13-16 miles offshore.
We caught plenty of fish in
the five to seven pound range
over the last few days.
If you go out dolphin
fishing you may locate the
large blackfin tunas migrating
to the south.
You will see some busts on
top giving their location away.
If you see the tunas, troll out
in front of them at around 10
knots.
Small feathers and 501b
leaders will help produce the

most bites. Try to use dark
colors such as black and
purple.

your catch you may call RJ

Evans
Continued from page 1
negotiate our differences and
reach a compromise where
neither side would feel left
out. We have to talk to each
other about what we want. We
should bring more nice shops
into town.
Ifyou could choose a
question for me to ask, what
would it be?
I'm working with two
people already to see if we
can get some of our buildings
declared historic. Historic
preservation is important.
Now all our memorabilia
is in someone's garage. We
have lots of artists in our
community. I would like to
see their works showcased at
the Chamber of Commerce
building and available for
purchase to help the artists
and support the chamber.

Sasser
Continued from page 1
between businesses and
residences. Infrastructure
changes need to be made to
the downtowii and all around
the town.
Sidewalks need repair.
Portals need to be maintained
better. I would see street
paving projects getting done.
All parts -f town would meet
requirements for turtles and
provide a safe environment
forthe town.
Public safety would
continuously get better
through training and other
activities to continue to
provide the service needed.
With a chance on the dais,
we would get away from
personal attacks, personal
agendas and ethics violations.
When our representatives are
professional, honorable and
trustworthy, that permeates
through the citizens.
We as a town will find
common ground rather than
differences.
If you could choose a
question for me to ask, what
would it be?
You talk about a plan and
prioritization. How do you
plan to pay for it?
We need to look at all
financial mechanisms
available to us. In this
political season there is talk
about grants and government
money.
Chasing grants and
shoving projects into them
is a backwards way of doing
business. We have to have a
plan with prioritized projects.
Then we can go look at
all grants and all financial
mechanisms that fit into the
plan rather than fit the plan
into grants and government
money.
