Homeowner Association
group spreads the word when
crime is in the neighborhood
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach If Kurt Davis had
known his felony crime would launch
an internet 'posse,' he probably would
not have snatched a woman's wallet.
Using what turned out to be his MO,
Davis approached a women near the
Publix at the Deerfield Beach Mall on
Father's Day, carrying a gas can. He
asked for a few dollars for gas. When
the victim reached for her money, he
grabbed her wallet and ran.
The gas can was a prop the 25 -
year-old Davis had used repeatedly. It
was also the thing that gave him away
when his crime was reported via email
to the West Deerfield Community Al-
liance, a loosely connected network of
12 homeowners' groups.

In an effort to save money, Bro-

of Sarah Palin and George W.
Bush on his literature.
His salvos were launched
on the internet and in mailed
pieces to voters. Flippen has
yet to face Clarke-Reed on the
campaign trail. His latest no-
shows were this week when
he sent a last-minute email to
Wilton Manors' Central Area
Neighborhood Association,
or CANA, which hosted the
forum, saying he could not at-
tend a forum being moderated
by Pelican Managing Editor
Michael d'Oliveira.
Later that same e \ nin'.
Flippen came early to the Dol-
phin Democrat Club's can-
didate forum and left before
Clarke-Reed arrived.
"I don't know how you
represent people if you won't
interact with them," Clarke-
Reed said at the CANA fo-
rum. Flippen was also absent
from a North Andrews Neigh-
borhood Association forum
held last month in Oakland
Park and did not respond in
time to an invitation to attend
a forum at John Knox Village
in Pompano Beach.
Of Flippen's allegations
the first-term representative
said, "I am very angry about
my opponent's literature. But
I stand my ground. I support
choice in education." Because
of this stand, not gay issues,
conservative's dollars have
gone into her campaign she
said.

After a major Two Guys Pawnbrokers at 3345 S. Federal Hwy, a


renovation,

HoJo's will

become The

Wyndam

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach For the
first time in its 35-year-his-
tory, the Howard Johnson, or
HoJo, Resort on the beach
is closed. When it reopens
after a massive renovation, it
will be a Wyndam Hotel.
General Manager Julian
Felder said property own-
ers Chase Enterprises out
of Hartford, Conn., have
purchased the Wyndam fran-
chise, an upscale brand.
"We have a great loca-
tion. Now we'll have a much
nicer product and better
marketing. It's a great thing
for everybody," he said.
Felder, who has overseen
seven redoes of the building
in his 22 years here, said he
hopes to reopen partially in
December.
Throughout the other re-
decorating projects, the hotel
remained open.
According to Felder the
lobby, meeting rooms and
guest rooms are being gut-
ted.
Baths are being enlarged
and glass installed floor-
to-ceiling and wall-to-wall
in rooms facing the ocean.
"This will be a brand new
hotel," he said.
HoJo's was the first na-
tional chain and first high-
rise hotel on Deerfield's
beach.
During construction, the
Patio Bar, renovated two
years ago, will remain open
with food service and enter-
tainment.
Also open on the north end
of the building is Harpoon
Louie's restaurant.


business success in the same location for 25 years


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
"You know we must be
doing something right,"
says Hal Wasserman, "or we
wouldn't be here for so many
years. Our customers know
us and trust us. They know
we will keep their identities
secret from the public. Most
of our pawns are on jewelry,
gold, and high-end items such
as lap tops, digital cameras
and name-brand golf clubs.
We buy, sell and make loans.
It might surprise you to know
that most of our sales happen
on eBay which has revolu-
tionized our business. Now,
the world is our customer. We
sell mostly to buyers in the
United States and Canada, but
we do get customers from as
far away as Australia."
How does it work?
Wasserman says, "Let's say
a customer comes in with a
diamond ring. I evaluate its
worth at $1,000. I might offer
to buy it for $800, or make a
loan on it for $700. The cus-
tomer decides depending upon
her desires. If it's a pawn, it
is done on a 30-day basis,
renewable for a fee every 30
days."
As this interview was taking
place, a customer came in and
volunteered her experience
to The Pelican, but asked to
remain anonymous. "I'm here
to retrieve my gold cross pen-
dant which I pawned for $30
cash," she said. Wasserman
handed the pendant to her and
she handed him $36 which
included her fee for retrieving
it in under 30 days.
"I've been a regular here
for 20 years," she explained.
I'm a single mom with no
credit cards. This works for
me. I trust them. I know that
my possession is safe and
that I can get it back. It helps
when I'm in a bind. I like to

be private, and I do not want
to ask for help from family or
friends."
"She's a typical customer,"
Wasserman said after she left.
"This poor economy, which
is very unpredictable, and
the record high price of gold
create the best climate there
is for our type of business.
We've loaned as little as $3
and as much as let's say six
figures. An ID is always
required."
For security purposes and in
case of a robbery, all pawned
jewelry is kept off the premise
in a bank safe deposit box.
Two Guys Pawn requires one
or two days notice to bring
the item to the store for the
customer. Wasserman says
he's purchased a lot of gold
which is mostly melted and
sold. "We weigh it on a jew-
elry scale and pay a fair price.
We also deal in fine watches


such as Rolex, Cardier and
Tag-Heyer.
The laws for pawnbrokers
protect both the customer
and the business. "We are
governed by city, county and
state," Wasserman says. "We
send a daily record of our
dealings to the BSO on the in-
ternet. We ask for a photo ID
and right thumb print from all
customers. Both of these go
into the BSO Pawn Track Sys
tem, which allows the police
to locate stolen items. The
BSO reports that through this
system they have recovered
items and identified thieves."
The law dictates that pawn-
brokers hold a pawned item
60 days from the day of the
pawn if no payments have
been made. After that, it is at
the pawnbroker's discretion.
When the pawnbroker has
purchased an item outright,
he still must hold the item for


30 days in case it might be
identified as stolen.
Asked if he can give a tele-
phone quote, he responds, "If
the caller can give a truly ac-
curate description of an item,
we can give them a fairly
accurate quote."
Wasserman is proud of the
way his business is run, and
adds, "We have two locations:
here and Deerfield Pawnbro-
kers, 618 S. Federal Hwy.,
Deerfield Beach. That store is
owned by Frank Papper. Both
of our stores are located in
the safest locations possible
which is very important in this
business."

Pompano Beach scouting to outsource city code enforcement


By Marise Estime
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach Com-
missioners pulled the plug
on hiring a private company
to take over its code enforce-
ment department.
City Manager Dennis
Beach made a recommenda-
tion to hire Calvin, Giordano
& Associates for five years
to manage the unit currently
being handled by the Broward
Sheriff's Office, or BSO.
Beach says the company
could save the city $400,000
dollars.
Some commissioners were
apprehensive about entering
into the agreement with Cal-
vin, Giordano & Associates
because they did not receive
bids from other companies.
Now they want to send out
proposals to companies
specializing in code enforce-
ment. And they wanted to
know how feasible it would
be for the city to monitor its
own code enforcement or
continue working with BSO.
The recommendations will be
reviewed when commission-
ers meet in September.
Pompano Beach pays $1.4
million dollars to BSO for
code inspection.
Thirteen inspectors and two
administrators oversee the
department.
Under the proposed agree-
ment with Calvin, Giordano &
Associates, Inc, the company
would have 10 code enforcers
and two administrators, cut-


ting the labor force by a third.
The agreement also calls
for the city to provide eight
pickup trucks to the private
firm for code enforcers to do
their jobs.
The company developed its
own software program that
automates a citation form and
prints the document right on
the spot. George Keller, Vice
President, Calvin Giordano
& Associates, Inc., says the
process works efficiently and
it allows the company to track
and plan routes. "We have 10
people and to administrators
and that equate to 12 people,"
Keller said. "We don't struc-
ture in the philosophy of
complaint. We work on a
proactive basis."
Vice Mayor George Brum-
mer warns there could be
repercussions if code en-
forcement is not handled
efficiently. "There has been
some criticism of BSO, but it
didn't come from me. Reduc-
ing the staff bothers me. We
don't have enough people to
find violations," Brummer
said. "Code compliance is a
personal service. If it doesn't
work properly commissioners
will be blamed." I would like
to see the city take control and
not outsource it to anyone. We
should look at BSO's contract
to see if they can offer better
service or the city should take
on code enforcement."
The idea did not sit well
with everyone. George Cuola-
han said, "Code enforcement
is a difficult job. BSO has


been doing this for 10 years
with 16 people and some
of the BSO officers know
Pompano code enforcement.
Looks to me like one million
dollars to make the change
just to save $400,000 dollars
is not worth it." According
to Keller, city officials can
terminate the contract in 90
days if they are not satisfied
with the service. He says the
City of Pembroke Pines has
contracted with his company
and as part of the agreement
they've hired former Pem-
broke city employees and are
committed to doing the same
in Pompano Beach. The firm
also has a contract in Weston.
Commissioner Rex Hardin
also opposed the proposed


agreement. "What concerns
me is that no other firms
were given an opportunity to
bid," Hardin said. "We need
to maximize our tax dollars."
Hardin wanted commissioners
to table the item to give other
company's an opportunity to
bid.


The consensus among the
commissioners was threefold:
find out if it would be feasible
for the city to take on code
enforcement, determine if
BSO will continue overseeing
the department at a better rate,
and finally send out RFP's to
other companies.

We like Rupert in the Dist. 7

Broward School Board race
Voters in north Broward have a chance to elect a new school board repre-
sentative Aug. 24. The Pelican is recommending Nora Rupert.
Rupert has been an advocate for better education for the last six years
concentrating on boundary issues and equal opportunity for all students. The
parent of three adopted special needs kids, she is particularly sensitive to
their issues.
We like Rupert because she really wants the job.
Several weeks before Dr. Bob Parks announced he would not seek re-elec-
tion for his Dist. 7 school board seat, Rupert had decided she would take him
on. It was generally thought Dr. Parks would be extremely difficult to beat.
So, she collected the 1,300 signatures needed to file and became a highly vis-
ible candidate showing up wherever a crowd gathered with persons who were
interested in schools.
Her three opponents, Russell Kaufman, Jim Lansing and Travis William-
son, did not become candidates until after Dr. Parks was out of the picture.
Rupert is hardworking and determined.
A teacher of high school English, ESOL classes and special needs students,
she understands the problems as both parent and educator.
As a parent she organized the attendance of 300 other parents at a school
boundary meeting. As a teacher, she understands the real world of the class-
room.
Rupert's lack of experience in the real world of business, however, is a
drawback. It is interesting that the two candidates from the educational sys-
tem, Rupert and Lansing, had no specific ideas for handling budget deficits.
Both said they would look to the community for input not a bad thing in
itself but not a clear path to cutting budgets.
Rupert does score here in our opinion because she would review admin-
istrative salaries "where too many at the top who do not have contact with
children make six figures." She also favors keeping programs that make for
well-rounded citizens music, art and drama-in the curriculum.
Russell Kaufman is the only candidate that gives actual examples and dol-
lar figures of ways to cut spending, and although we can't verify his num-
bers, we applaud his research and believe his inside knowledge of the system
could be valuable. We encourage him to continue his advocacy.
Rupert is also the only candidate to delineate her ideas to improve school
lunches, something that has become a national issue, and one which we be-
lieve should be taken seriously by school administrators.
All four candidates have their strengths. In the end, it is Rupert's strong
desire for the job and her demonstrated ability to work extremely hard, that
wins her our nod.

Florida has no need of an


arrogant state representative

Justin Flippen's 'No-shows'

demonstrate contempt for the

democratic process
Justin Flippen, candidate for state representative, District 92, resigned his
elected position as vice mayor of Wilton Manors halfway through his first term
to challenge incumbent Gwyn Clarke-Reed.
But after he publicly snubbing the same people who elected him and others
whom he claims he will represent, it's clear he has no idea of the democratic
process.
Here are the clues.
Flippen was invited to debate Clarke-Reed at a planned forum Wednesday in
Wilton Manors. But he only toyed with his commitment to attend.
While he had given at least two affirmative verbal responses to attend the
forum, he never officially confirmed that he would be there.
When The Pelican tried to confirm whether or not he would show up at the
forum at Hagen Park, Flippen's response was, "You'll find out tomorrow."
And we did.
Coordinators of the forum, the Central Area Neighborhood Association, or
CANA; interested voters and Clarke-Reed, did show up.
The forum was planned for 7 p.m. Flippen sent an email an hour and a half
before the event to a member of CANA saying he was not going to appear.
We understand that campaigns are exhausting and difficult.
But if a candidate cannot find time to meet the people and answer tough ques-
tions, what will he be doing in Tallahassee?
Clarke-Reed knows it's about work. She traveled 12 miles to meet with the
50 or more constituents waiting at Hagen Park. Flippen's 'No Show' should
be seen as nothing less than a snub to the people of Wilton Manors, the same
people who gave him his first elected office.
Flippen's snubs seem consistent.
When Flippen was invited to debate Clarke-Reed at John Knox Village in
Pompano Beach, his response to the invitation came too late for the event to
take place, according to Pauline Ulitsch, chair of the JKV legislative committee.
That was a stupid snub. JKV voters rarely miss a chance to cast a vote.
Flippen was a 'No Show' at a planned forum on July 15 in Oakland Park,
hosted by the North Andrews Neighborhood Association.
Clarke-Reed was there.
At a time when voter apathy is widespread, it is an affront to the pro-active
voters who seek information in order to make informed decisions on election
day.
Meanwhile Flippen is waging a negative campaign accusing Clarke-Reed of
an alliance with "the Biggest Republican Right Wingers" that include Sarah
Palin, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
But that campaign is a mailing campaign.
Flippen needs to stand up to State Representative Gwyn Clarke-Reed to hear
her response to those claims before the voters.
But apparently he will not do that.
And apparently he will not face the voters.
But most apparently, Justin Flippen would be a bad choice for the voters in
District 92.

Sheriff Al Lamberti: one of the

good guys in Broward County
Dear Editor,
After being involved in law enforcement for almost 30 years, I have never
met a man more qualified for the position of Sheriff of Broward County than Al
Lamberti. He is very respectful to his personnel, and they serve with the utmost
integrity.
He also has a great sense of humor and is very down to earth. He has saved
the county thousands of dollars since his appointment by the governor and
his election by the residents of Broward County. While in office, he instituted
direct deposit payrolls that saved the county thousands of dollars. I met Sheriff
Lamberti while serving in the COP program in Deerfield Beach and was very
impressed with his professionalism. Congratulations to his son, Nick, for fol-
lowing in his father's footsteps by graduating from the F.B.I.

Four vie

in primary

election for

District 7 seat
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Four candidates seek to
replace Dr. Bob Parks in the
Aug. 25 primary election for
the District 7 School Board
seat. Parks announced his
retirement in May after serv-
ing 24 years on the board. The
candidates in the non-parti-
san race are Coconut Creek
activist Nora Rupert and three
Pompano Beach residents,
James Lansing, a Nova South-
eastern University art profes-
sor, Russell Kaufman, an in-
ternet technician employed by
the school system and Travis
Williamson, who manages his
family's irrigation business.

For this profile, the candi-
dates were asked to answer
four questions:
1. What specific talent
would you bring to the School
Board?
2. How would you handle
the budget deficit cut
programs, cut salaries, other?
If you cut programs, which
ones? Would you cut ad-
ministrative salaries to save
programs such as art, music
and physical education?
3. What is the number one
change needed in the school
system?
4. Do you have an opinion
on school lunches?
Here's what they said:


Russell Kaufman, 25
computer specialist employed
by the Broward County School
C Board. Education: Attended
local schools and graduated from Deer-
field Beach High School and Broward
S j Community College. Currently attends
Florida Atlantic University.
Talent: In my seven years working for
the Broward County School System, I
have seen the waste firsthand. I have
been fighting to save the district money
for years. A plan that I submitted to the
board could have saved over $10 million, but that has been set
aside. I know the system. I have seen where it needs to work,
and I have the Ineic. 'y to get things done.
Budget deficit: First we should stop the Benchmark Assess-
ment Tests. This would save about $1.5 million. Second, chang-
ing the type of equipment the district buys would save another
$10 million. Thirdly, the stimulus capital money should be used
to reduce future expenditures. As an example, installing solar
panels in our schools could save millions. And lastly, disal-
low district administrators from double dipping by taking both
retirement and fulltime salaries. This would save $2.8 million.
There are many ways to save money. It's time for someone who
does not have lobbyist and insider ties to implement much-
needed improvements.
Change: Fresh ideas and e Ii.1I'.y to get things done. We have so
many board members set in their ways. This makes it hard for
the district to improve and expand our schools.
Lunch: I have seen students that do not have money whose
parents don't want to file for free or reduced lunch because of
their pride. In this hard economic time, we need to look at how
we are going to feed students because the situation is likely to
get worse. If money wasn't an issue, school lunches should be
free for all students. Sadly, this is not possible. A more immedi-
ate solution is to encourage parents to apply for this assistance.

James Lansing, 64
ine Arts professor at Nova SE
University, Coconut Creek
campus.
Education: Master of Fine Arts,
Northern Illinois University; Master
Science in Education, Northern Illinois
University, Bachelor of Arts, SUNY Buf-
falo.
Talent: The ability to understand
problems and make balanced, measured
decisions based on 35 years experience
as a college professor and professional
educator.
Budget deficit: The budget deficit should be handled by
gathering input from all stakeholders in the school system and
businesses and community groups. Classroom instruction costs
should not be cut. We should seek creative ways to support
music, art and PE in the schools.
Change: We need to develop a vision for the next five to 10
years for the district that includes cost cutting, eliminates waste
and ensures ethical practices.
Lunch: Healthful, nutritious choices should be used for what
is for some students the best meal of the day.


Nora Rupert, 44
beaches high school English,
ESOL and gifted classes.
Education: BA in mass
communications, Florida Teacher's
Certificate.
Talent: I will be a strong voice for
the children using my firsthand expe-
rience as a language arts classroom
teacher trained to recognize the needs
of all students. I will focus on expand-
ing the curriculum to be innovative
and relevant for today's world.
Budget deficit: I will fight to keep
cuts out of the classroom especially programs that contribute to
a well-rounded education such as PE, music, drama, etc. These
programs not only contribute to positive emotional and creative
outlets, but studies prove that learning does increase for these
students. I would review high level salaries where too many
people at the top, who do not have contact with children, make
six figures.
Change: The number one change needed is to identify inno-
vative, cost-cutting solutions by forming relationships, utiliz-
ing open-door communication with input from all stakeholders
- PTAs, SACs, municipalities, teachers, community leaders and
students with a single goal, the best education possible.
Lunch: School lunches are not as healthy, appetizing, nor
culturally diverse as they could be especially if we are cutting
out PE. Feeding kids high-carb, high calorie meals only adds to
the problems of obesity and early diabetes. The snack machines
are filled with cokes and chips. Can we put in fruit, yogurt and
low-fat granolas as alternatives?


Travis Williamson, 29
V ice president of fam-
ily-owned business, B&R
Industries.
Education: Graduate of Ely High
School and Florida Atlantic University
with degrees in business administra-
tion and marketing.
Talent: I am the only candidate with
school board experienced as having
been a student advisor to the board.
I am also the only candidate with
financial management background and
will use this experience to put our children and schools back
on track. My love and dedication to children make me the most
qualified choice.
Budget deficit: The system is top heavy with administration.
It is not necessary to have four or five assistant principals in
each high school. Some departments at the school board could
be merged. As a last resort, the voters should be given the op-
tion of a one cent tax or millage increase to soley support the
public education system. And last, the promise of funding for
education from the state lottery and gambling venues should be
called out to ensure that those promises are kept. It is para-
mount that schools not only teach to a single standardized test,
but also focus on intellectual capacity with programs such as
art and music.
Change: A top priority of mine is to focus on putting chil-
dren and education first. To accomplish this we must refocus on
the core business of teaching and learning while reinforcing the
need to expand student's intellectual capacity. It is evident that
our community is displeased with the FCAT. We should rectify
this by recognizing each child's individualism based on a range
of achievements, not just a single test. Also needed, a transpar-
ent relationship between the school board and our community,
teachers and labor management groups that will lead to advanc-
ing teacher quality, lifting student achievement and improving
schools.
Lunch: I do not find this topic to be a current issue of prior-

Posse


Continued from page 1
at the Harbors of Riverglen
Homeowners Association,
or HOA, sent the informa-
tion to her neighbors and
several of them thought they
had seen Davis and his gas
can at other nearby loca-
tions, the Kohl's department
store in Boca Raton and
The Promenade in Coconut
Creek.
They reported their suspi-
cions and then one of them
spotted Davis at the Olive
Garden on Powerline Road
in Boca Raton. She took his
picture with her cellphone
and sent it on to BSO Dep.
Jim Engle who was investi-
gating the case.
Engle, in fact, had been
receiving all the informa-
tion Aslanian's posse was
submitting and in only eight
days deputies spotted Davis
again, this time at 4000 W.
Hillsboro Boulevard just
over the line into Coconut
Creek where he was arrest-
ed. Davis, it seems, had an
extensive criminal history.
To Deputy Engle's knowl-
edge he is still in jail.
Because of the ladies'
sightings of Davis and their
reports to Engle, BSO soon
knew his hangouts. Tall and
skinny with reddish blond
hair, he wasn't hard to spot,
Deputy Engle said. And this
time, his old-time ploy, ask-
ing for a few dollars for gas,
was no match for modern-
day communication.

friends, Karin Goss, Dory
Block, Vicki Sklar White,

Bonnie Raleyh, Jackie
Johnson and Lisa Amian,
received a commendation
for their civic-minded pur-
suit of a criminal last week
from Dist. 4 City Commis-
sioner Bill Ganz. Ganz,
before he was a commis-
sioner, was responsible for
setting the internet crime
watch in motion. The crime
alerts began with the forma-
tion of the Deerfield Beach
Alliance several years ago.
Now when BSO encounters
criminal activity in District
4, the information is emailed
to Ganz who relays it to a
person designated by each
HOA to pass the word on.
Engle does not know if
other criminals have been
caught through the emails,
but he does know that in-


formation is a deterrent to
crime. "There is no way we
could be as effective with
our fight on crime without
the help of the residents we
serve," Deputy Engle said.
"Their eyes and ears are the
most helpful tools we have."
Of the Harbors' 183 resi-
dential units, 102 occupants
have signed up to receive
the crime watch emails. As-
lanian, the contact person,
is trying to get everyone on
her list.
To that end, anyone living
in Dist. 4, the voting area
west of Military Trail ex-
cluding Century Village and
Crystal Lake, can be added
to the contact list by email-
ing Commissioner Ganz at,

Friday, August 13, 2010 The Pelican 9


Early Voting
Continued from page 1

We decided to cut the Pom-
pano Beach site based on the
turnout and size of the facil-
ity." Supervisor of Elections
Brenda Snipes sliced the num-
ber of locations from 17 to 11,
and she also reduced the hours
of operation.
While budgetary constraint
is the prime reason for the
lack of polling sites, Pompano
Beach Commissioner Barry
Dockswell, says that Snipes
should have mapped out a bet-
ter plan to accommodate all
voters.
"The whole Northeastern
portion of Broward County
is shortchanged by the way it
is handled. Fort Lauderdale
has two voting sites. You
have to go to Coconut Creek
if you want to vote [early]."
Dockswell added, "We all pay
taxes at the same time. I don't
see why we were given short
shrift."
Dockswell asked city man-
ager, Dennis Beach, to get the
inequality resolved. He hopes
other commissioners feel the
same way.
Dockswell said, "If you take
a look at the maps, you will
see voting sites in Pembroke
Pines, Miramar, Tamarac, two
sites in Fort Lauderdale, Coral
Springs and Coconut Creek,
but Northeastern Broward
County has none. How can it
be so skewed?"
Pompano Beach Vice
Mayor George Brummer also
voiced concern about the lack
of voting sites. "I spoke to the
Supervisor of Elections, and
she said it will cost $70,000
to put a site up, and we don't
have the money. The way she
placed the sites out is unreal-
istic," said Brummer. "There
are 11 polling locations
throughout Broward. Some of
the people in my district can
make it over to the library in
Coconut Creek, but not other
residents in Lighthouse Point
and Deerfield. I guess we
have to live with it."
Still that brings little
consolation to folks who
are pounding the pavement
hoping to get voters out for


the primary. "We have major
concerns about not having a
site in Pompano Beach," said
Alice Chattman, member of
the Democratic Club, "Our
concern is that they closed
sites for early voting in Deer-
field and Pompano. I haven't
seen a lot of African Ameri-
cans coming out, so we've
been working hard to get the
absentee ballots outs. We've
done a great job in the Collier
City area."
Meanwhile, the Northwest
Regional Library located on
Broward College's campus
was abuzz Tuesday with sup-
porters and volunteers trying
to entice voters to cast ballots
for their political candidates.
John Novak, a campaign vol-
unteer said he's noticed that
only a few Broward County
residents in Coconut Creek
are taking advantage of early
voting. He hopes more people
will come out before the Aug.
21 deadline.
Pompano Beach Resident,
Al Dobronz says "I'm on my
way home, so this is a conve-
nient site for me. But for some
people in the eastern part of
Pompano it will be difficult
to get here. There are a lot of
cutbacks now. We have to live
with what we have. I am sure
county officials had a struggle
in making that decision." He
adds, "I think it's important
especially for the elderly who
live in Palm Aire to come out
and vote."
James McKissiee feels that
Broward County Supervisor
of Elections should have had
an extensive campaign to alert
voters of the reduced polling
sites.
Mckissiee says, "I don't
think the advertisement was
out there to let people know
the voting sites were reduced.
The Supervisor of Elections
didn't do a thorough job and
as a result I've only seen a
handful of folks coming out
here to vote."
Broward sites will be open
10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the
hours have been extended on
Saturday to help make up for
the elimination of Sunday
hours. The last day to vote
early in Broward is Aug. 21.

Continued from page 2

Clarke-Reed added, "I've
worked on more budgets than
my opponent will ever see."
CANA member Bill Rich-
ardson says Flippen verbally
confirmed twice that he would
attend the forum, once on
June 15 and again on July 27.
Richardson says he also sent
an email to Flippen's cam-
paign. "He knew he wasn't
coming. I don't know why he
didn't let us know us sooner,"
said Constance Ruppender,
CANA president.
Phone calls to Flippen and
his campaign manager, Wally
Eccleston, were not returned
by press time Thursday.
Write-in candidate Arthur
Williams was also invited to
the forum but did not respond.
Flippen was elected to the
Wilton Manors Commission
in 2008.
Clarke-Reed told the CANA
audience she does not sup-
port gay marriage, calling
it a "personal opinion." She
does support a number of gay
issues including the right of
gay couples to adopt children,
civil unions, adding legisla-
tive protection for the lesbian,
gay bisexual and transgender
community.
"I have worked closely with
Representative Gwyn Clarke-
Reed. She has supported and
stood with our community,"
said Michael Rajner, legisla-


tive director of the Florida
Gay Lesbian Bisexual and
Transgender Democratic Cau-
cus, at the Dolphin Democrats
forum.And she supports tax
credit scholarships, called
vouchers by some, that give
parents the right to choose
the best environment for their
children's education. Clarke-
Reed said 27,000 students
used those funds last year. "I
voted for tax credit scholar-
ships for low income families.
Now kids who meet the crite-
ria have options for alternate
school systems. The money is
not from the state budget."
Clarke-Reed has authored
a bill, yet to pass, that would
earmark Powerball money

Volunteers get great rewards from 'Listen to Children' and I'm

Thumbody', Mental Health Association school programs


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
As youngsters begin the ex-
citement of a new school year,
just imagine what a gift of a
few hours of time each week
can do to build a child's self
esteem. The Mental Health
Association, or MHA, of Bro-
ward County offers a veritable
treasure chest of services to
the community. This article
focuses on just three of those
valuable programs geared to
the youngest population in
Broward County's elementary
schools.
The programs in need of
volunteers with a few hours
every week are: Listen to
Children, I'm Thumbody, and
Thumbody Too.
Helen Leitch, children's
prevention services director,
was called to The Pelican's
attention by Helen Daunt who
wrote, "I want to suggest a
wonderful woman who helps
so many of us volunteers
make a difference in a child's
life. I have volunteered with
Helen for the last five years
and she is a gift from heaven
to these kids. Take time to
talk to her. You'll be glad you
did."
Listen to Children
Imagine what it's like to
never have adult attention
all to oneself. This program
pairs children in elementary
school with caring adults for
just one half hour once a week
for a fun chat, game playing,
or whatever the child wants to
do. The children selected by
the teacher for this one on one
weekly friendship meeting are
often starved for attention.
Children's issues could
include shyness, trouble mak-
ing friends, the birth of a new
sibling, parental divorce or
remarriage, or attention seek-

a listener and friend to this boy who

sessions with her. [Photo by Phyllis J.

ing behavior in the classroom.
The volunteer becomes a
non-judgemental adult friend
who over time helps build that
child's self esteem, improves
communication and problem
solving skills and makes a
positive difference.
Anyone, young or old,
male or female can be a
listener. Listeners are friends,
not therapists so no special
education is needed. Listeners
are trained by the MHA and
agree to a background check
to comply with school board
requirements.
Once training is completed,
volunteers are assigned to
individual children in a spe-
cific school. They meet with
a child for 30 minutes at the
same time, same day, every
week. Young children respond

Lighthouse Point Chamber plans August

Social to resemble a 'speed-dating' event


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
"It's like speed dat-
ing only with different
businesses," said Lucille
Pignataro, branch manager
for Bank United in Light-
house Point and the new
president of the Lighthouse
Point Chamber of Com-
merce, or LHPCC.
On Aug. 17 the LHPCC
will host its August Social
at the Shoppes of Beacon
Light, located at Federal
Highway and Northeast 24
Street two blocks north of
Copans Road on the east
side of Federal. Partici-
pants will have an opportu-
nity to visit Beacon Light
Jewelers & Engravers,
Body & Soul Boutique,
My Own Cruising Journal,
Merle Norman Cosmetics
& Day Spa, Allstate Insur-
ance, Bank United and
others.


"Stores will be giving away
something. But it's really
up to each store," said Mil-
lie Walsh, owner of Body &
Soul Boutique and LHPCC
member, who adds that she
will probably give away some
merchandise and contribute a
$50 gift card to the raffle.
Pat Anderson, owner of
Islandwear & Gifts and My
Own Cruising Journal will
be giving away gift boxes of
note cards featuring artwork
of local landmarks like Cap's
Place, the Lighthouse Point
Library and the Hillsboro In-
let Lighthouse. Anderson will
also be introducing her new
book: Pat Anderson's Island
Artwork Tabletop Book. "Ev-
eryone's going to get a sneak
preview," said Anderson.
Each location will also have
beverages and snacks avail-
able to enjoy and participants
can get a card stamped at


each business and enter for
the drawing at 6:45 p.m. at
Bank United, the last stop of
the evening. Prizes include
gift baskets, merchandise
and gift cards.
Chamber seeks a
few good
restaurants
The 7th Annual Taste of
Lighthouse Point will be
Jan. 18, 2011. The commit-
tee in charge needs to be
formed over the summer
months. An event chair and
committee chairs for the
auction, sponsorship and
restaurant committees are
needed. Additional members
are also needed to begin to
meet and coordinate efforts
for the event. The meetings
will be the first Tuesday
of each month at 3320 N.

Grant could pave way for

new plans on Wilton Drive


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Wilton Manors Hopes for
a $10 million federal grant
to takeover Wilton Drive
may have given way to lesser
aspirations.
On Tuesday members of
Wilton Manors Main Street
informed commissioners of
another funding opportunity,
a $3 million planning grant
from TIGER, or Transporta-
tion Investment Generating
Economic Recovery, II.
"We can go for either but
we can't go for both," said
Tom Tabor, chairman of the
Wilton Manors Main Street
Initiative to Improve Wilton
Drive. Tabor added that he
thinks the city has a good
chance to get whatever grant
it applies for.
Doug Blevins, president of
Main Street, said the planning
grant would help put the city
in a better position to ap-
ply for other funding further
down the road.
City Manager Joseph Gal-
legos said he thought the city
would most likely be able to
get a $3 million grant.
In a later interview, Gal-
legos said the city would
apply for a $1 million grant.
"We've basically already
made a decision," said Gal-


legos. According to Gallegos,
the city would have to supply
a $200,000 matching grant in
order to receive the funding.
Calls and emails to FDOT
to confirm that figure were
not returned in time. The $10
grant would require a $2.5
million match from the city.
In a later interview, Tabor said
Main Street would continue
to seek the $10 million either
now or in the immediate
future.
"We're getting statements of
intent from private investors,"
said Tabor.
The planning grants, funded
with a total of $35 million, are
a joint venture between the
U.S. Department of Transpor-
tation and Housing and Urban
Development. Examples of
approved planning projects
are the expansion of afford-
able housing near transporta-
tion routes, the increase of
public transportation options
and the development of a par-
ticular transportation corridor
that promotes mixed-use or
transit-oriented projects.
Gables Residential, which
owns and operates Wilton
Park, a mixed-used devel-
opment near city hall, has
proposed another mixed-use
development on top of the
site for the old city hall and

Fire Fee


Continued from page I
residents.
The owners of Hillsboro's
2,500 properties have never
been assessed the fire fee
which Deerfield Beach,
provider of fire/rescue ser-
vices here, initiated five years
ago. Instead, town commis-
sioners incorporated the fee
into its fire budget, currently
around $814,000. If the 2,500
unit owners paid the fee, the
town's fire budget would be
reduced by $250,000.
The town also absorbs the
cost of garbage and trash
collection for its residents, a
$300,000 contract with Waste
Management. That contract

% Y -


comes due the end of this year
and officials from the waste
hauling company have warned
they will be asking for a rate
increase.
Last summer the town
trimmed costs and ended up
with a $3.9 million budget
and a millage rate of 3.39. The
town's revenues come chiefly
from property taxes, currently
about $3 million. This year,
they have been put on notice
by the Broward County Prop-


erty Appraiser that assessed
property values have fallen
by seven percent. If there is
no tax increase, there will
be a shortfall in that revenue
stream.
But shifting the cost of ei-
ther the fire fee or the garbage
contract to residents is not
something Mayor Carmen
McGarry endorses. McGarry
said she would prefer a small
tax increase to putting those
burdens on the residents.

"Our community does not

get these things. I'd like to
keep it that way."
Commissioners won't see a
proposed budget until a hear-
ing September 13 at 5:30 p.m.
McGarry said there are still
many unknowns in the cost of
services such as fire/rescue,
health benefits and garbage
collection. Still, she said, she
would hope to find a way


around the projected deficit.
City Commissioner Celinda
Sawtelle said she had wanted
to make recycling mandatory
and charge residents for it in
the next waste contract, but
the notion never gained steam.
As for the fire fee, she said
the city attorney had advised
it would be a complicated
process to change the assess-
ment. "The money comes out
of the tax payer one way or
another," Sawtelle said.

Parking Permits are in the near future for Pompano Beach Residents


By Marise Estime
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach Saving
coins for parking meters for
the city's pier or the beach
may be a thing of the past for
Pompano Beach residents.
Commissioners are consid-
ering a plan to create a $75
annual parking permit for
residents.
The permits will be ac-
cepted at city lots from 6 a.m.
to 8 p.m. The 8 p.m. cut off
is a deterrent to keep residents
from using the lots as a stor-
age facility for their vehicles.
City officials are currently


working out the kinks of the
plan. Several suggestions
were introduced as a means
to accommodate business
owners and residents. Vice
Mayor George Brummer
recommended offering the
permits for only 6 months and
lower the costs for seasonal
residents. While Brummer
wants the cost to be lowered,
Commissioner Harding hopes
the plan calls for a permit that
will help boating enthusiasts.
Rex Hardin says, "The time
should be extended, we have a
lot of residents who go fishing
at night and they should have
an opportunity to have per-


mits." Commissioner Barry
Dockswell added, "I want to
have the permits, but I am
not sure if the price is right. I
want us to treat people fairly
across the board."
The consensus among the
commissioners is to have a
permit that will be cost ef-


fective for residents, possibly
reducing the proposed fee to
$60 dollars. The city currently
collects $700,000 a year from
parking meters at its city lots.
Administrators aren't sure
how much money they will
generate from the permits.
Permits will be issued for


the car, owners will not be
able to transfer it to other
vehicles. The permits can-
not be used during special
events. All violations must be
cured before you can obtain a
permit. The measure will go
before the board sometime in
September.

Request for additional funds causes LBTS

to re-negotiate reef contract with GCRA


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
LBTS It's back to the
drawing board to clarify the
contract between builders of
an artificial reef habitat and
the town, so the project can be
completed.
In response to a plea for
an additional $4,700 plus
early payment of $5,000
to cover increased costs,
commissioners directed town
administration to re-negotiate
the contract between the
town and Global Coral Reef
Alliance, or GCRA, a non-
profit agency dedicated to
restoring coral reefs.
The project, the first of
its kind in the country, is
designed to revive diseased
and dying coral reef. Its
leader says the project "will
put LBTS on the map in
terms of being a leader in
environmental restoration."
The town already has paid
nearly $50,000 of the total
$76,480 cost.
Commissioners met in a
special workshop session July
28 to discuss the project and
consider the request for more
funds.
While all five
commissioners supported


moving ahead, most agreed
the contract needed work to
protect both the town and
GCRA. The agency is in
breach of the current contract
after not meeting some
deadlines and by changing the
original plans.
"It behooves both of us, the


town and you, to put in place
a contract not currently in
breach," said Commissioner
Scot Sasser. "I think we could
come to terms. I'm all for this
project."
The issue of the new
contract is expected to be on

Meanwhile, since the

Commissioner Birute Ann

Bob Roberts, a LBTS

who recently died. He is a

others also have stepped
forward with donations,
Clottey said this week.

"Reefs in southeast Florida
have practically disappeared.
In the area where this habitat
is to be installed off LBTS,
reefs are dying, and there
has been quite a decline in
corals. Algae, diseases, coral
bleaching and water quality
are killing the coral, Goreau
said. "We have to start trying
to reverse that if you want to
have an attraction for divers
and snorkelers." In Bora Bora,
French Polynesia, where a
similar habitat was installed,


Goreau said they saw coral
begin forming on the first day.
Tourists come from around
the world to see the artificial
reef in Indonesia, Goreau
said. He predicts the reef
project in LBTS, "the beach
dive capital of the U.S.,
will create a snorkel trail
and diving attraction. The
problem is where will they
park when they come here,"
he quipped.

The original plan for the
LBTS project was to power
the reef with electricity from
the fishing pier, Goreau said,
noting that that was before a
hurricane destroyed the pier
electrical system. He said cost
to restore pier electricity was
prohibitive, and they switched
to building a solar-powered
buoy.
An experienced boat maker
in LBTS built the custom-
made buoy, first with 90
watt power. Then the builder
looked at the site again and
determined the buoy should
be stronger with double the
power. In changing the design,
the price went up. It took two
years to get all the permits,
Goreau said, "and we're stuck
assimilating the rise in prices"
for materials.
The contract calls for three
buoys, two to provide power
to the reef structure and a
third as backup. Goreau said
a third buoy is no longer
needed.
"In my view, we should
go ahead as is. We' re ready
to move ahead as quickly
as possible." His preference
would be to use the second
buoy and keep the first in
reserve.
Mayor Roseann Minnet
said, "We have adequate
parking in town when the
influx of tourists comes. I'm
sure we'll be able to find
places to park."
Sasser asked about the cost
of annual maintenance and if
the town is responsible after a
certain time. Dan Clark of Cry
of the Water, an agency that
works to protect Broward's
reefs, said the contract
includes $10,000 for the first
year's maintenance. Until the
project has been in place for
a year, he said he couldn't
predict the actual cost.
Susan Trevarthen, town
attorney, said the existing
contract is not completely
clear on who is responsible
for maintenance.
Minnet said she understands
the importance of the reef and
favors protecting the natural
resource. However, "We need
to be prudent as far as where
taxpayer monies go," she said.
"We have invested money in
this project. The contract may
have areas where we need a
better understanding of what
the town gets and what you' re
providing. There are holes
in the contract, hopefully
not in the buoy." She said
the contract needed to be
reviewed and totally redone.
Connie Hoffmann, interim
town manager, asked for
clarification of funds needed.
Clark explained they needed
the $5,000 allocated in the
contract after completion
of the third buoy plus an
additional $4,700 to cover
cost of the buoys.

Continued from page 10
to these one-on-on sharing
moments with great
enthusiasm. They love the
undivided attention they get
from their caring adult friend.
A one year commitment is
expected.
This program is offered
to all Broward County
elementary schools where
volunteers are available.
Helen Leitch says, "Last year,
we had Listen to Children in
about 80 schools with about
150 volunteers. We wish we
had twice that number."
Shirley Wine, a
snowbird who spends the
school year in her Deerfield
home, has been a listener
volunteer for 26 years. "I've
had a lot of fun," she says,
"and worked with so many
darling children. Currently, I
listen at Norcrest Elementary.
I use games and different
materials. I come to know
each child's favorite topics,
shows, subjects and people.
The child might want to talk
about feelings, play games,
or discuss a problem. We
are trained to know how to
get started. Usually I spend
one year with a child, but
I have had several for ore
than one year. The teachers
and guidance counselors are
around for guidance, when
we need it. I encourage other
men and women with a few
hours of free time each week
to do this. It's fun and very
gratifying to see the children
blossom with the attention."
I'm Thumbody and
Thumbody too


Everyone is different, just
like a thumb print, which is
how these programs got their
name. Established in 1983,
about 16,000 Broward County
primary aged schoolchildren
have experienced this
nationally recognized
program each year. The 55
minute program includes a
video entitled Everybody's
Different. Using Thumbody,
the puppet, the presenter
reminds the children of their
uniqueness and talks about
different feelings and how to
talk to adults whom they trust
about those feelings.
The children receive
stickers, bookmarks and
pledge cards with the
Thumbody logo. The goals of
the program are respect for
self, for others, responsibility
for behavior and awareness of
sources for safe help. Men and
women volunteers who are
comfortable interacting with
a classroom of children and
have a little free time during
the school day can be trained
in three hours to participate
in this program. Time is
flexible because volunteers
are directly responsible for
arranging schedules with the
schools. Teachers remain in
the classroom and they are
provided with posters and
activity packets to reinforce
concepts.
One teacher commented,
"This is an excellent
presentation which contains
valuable information for
the children. The activities
will help them develop
individuality and increase self
esteem as well as tolerance for
the differences of others."
Spelling skills may be


L,_.',in.ii' but The Pelican
learned that these youngsters
had set high standards for
themselves.
One child wrote, "We
all are special."
Another wrote "Do
not quite. Always keep
trying and maybe you
will get it."
A third child wrote,
"It dos'ent madder if
you do not look like this
girl it madders who you
are in life."
Thumbody, too
Thumbody, too aims
the same message at
kindergarteners and pre-
school classrooms. It
reminds children to celebrate
differences and affirm
similarities. Through a game,
a puppet and a video children
learn to feel good about
themselves and also gain an
awareness of their feelings
and how they impact their
relationships with others.
Trained volunteers bring
the message to children in
schools and community sites
throughout Broward. All
that's needed is a sense of
fun and the means to get to
assigned program sites. Each
presentation takes about 45
minutes.
Meet Helen Leitch
Leitch began her
involvement with MHA while
in college. After college,
she volunteered for seven
years while being a stay at
home mom with two sons.
"When the youngest began
middle school, I accepted
a part time job with MHA

Wilton Drive
Continued from page 11

offered the city $2.5 million in
exchange for a 75-year lease
on the property.
In July, commissioners
voted to apply for a $10
million TIGER II grant and
requires that the city put
up $2.5 million of it's own
money. If approved, the city
would have $12.5 million
to spend on roadway and
infrastructure projects. That
money would most likely be
spent on taking over Wilton
Drive from the Florida
Department of Transportation,
or FDOT, narrowing it to
two lanes and building
parking structures along the
drive. The commission has
voted to set up a task force
- made of up residents, city
officials, business owners and
municipal planning officials
- to explore options for
improving Wilton Drive.
The grant money would
have to be completely spent
and none of it could go
towards maintaining the
street. FDOT estimates for
maintaining the road are
between $75 and $85,000
a year, plus $500,000 to
resurface it every 15 years and
$30,000 a year to maintain the
bridge between Northeast 4
Avenue and Wilton Drive.
Main Street members
have taken over the job of
writing and preparing the
grant application on behalf of
the city. "The city does not
have the resources to do this.
We're relying on Main Street
to put this grant together,"
said Mayor Gary Resnick,
about the cost of writing the
grant. Resnick added that
he appreciates Main Street's
effort. Tabor estimates the
cost of preparing the grant
is over $20,000 "and we' re
trying to raise money."
Resnick and Blevins argued
over Resnick bringing up
the $250,000 the city has
previously given to Main
Street over the years. Blevins
said he was personally
offended by Resnick bringing
up the issue. "That's in the
past," Blevins said.
Commissioner Ted Galatis
said he has "yet to see
businesses reach in their
pockets" to support Main
Street. "We're operating on

Bogardus, his partner of 10
years, bought a house seven
years ago in what was then
unincorporated Broward
County. He says he walked his
North Andrews neighborhood
to urge residents to vote to be
annexed into Oakland Park.
Adornato says he will focus
on consensus building and
finding solutions. He will
work to protect open space
and oppose uncontrolled
growth. He favors smart
growth, increasing business
in an appropriate way with
a little more planning. And
he will dedicate resources to

replied Tabor.
Blevins and Tabor also
presented a map of possible
locations for parking and
retail on Wilton Drive,
including the old city hall site,
Acupulco Lindo Restaurant
and the city's Pioneer site on
Dixie Highway.
In a later interview, Tabor
said a public parking site on
the Pioneer property could
be used as a tie in with the
Florida East Coast Railway
project, making the project
more appealing to the federal
government. "They want
you more reliant on mass
transportation," said Tabor.
In a later interview, Tabor
highlighted the benefits of
improving Wilton Manors to
the City of Fort Lauderdale,
saying it would be good
for tourism for both cities.
Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack
Seiler agreed. "Obviously
our tourism industries are
interconnected. These cities
are neighbors and intertwined
in so many ways. We're
trying to assist them and in
the past they have assisted
us," said Seiler. "I think we're
generally in support of it."

degrees in general education
from Polytechnical University

data telecommunication from
the National Radio Institute
in Washington, D.C. and
business administration from

Aragon bought his house
in Royal Palm Isles 10 years
ago. He has concerns about
public safety and the need
for a balanced budget. He
says the city needs to put
programs in place to get
everyone together in a diverse
community.
Aragon points out that

residents is Hispanic, and
he believes it's time for a

from them. They preserve a
cypress tree canopy on their
one-acre property on the
Sleepy River.
Shank, 31, met his wife
eidi at the University of
Florida, where he received a
bachelor's degree in business
administration. "We met in
human sexuality class and
now have five beautiful
children," he said with a big
grin at a recent candidate
forum. They bought a house
in 2001 in Twin Lakes South,
where he is president of the
neighborhood association.
Shank also has a master's
degree in accounting from the
University of Notre Dame.
"What sets me apart is my
professional background.
I'm a CPA, and I believe my


financial experience would
be an asset in Oakland Park,
particularly in these tough
economic times," he says.
Shank, formerly a senior
associate with Ernst &
Young, is an audit specialist
with the Broward County
Auditor's Office. He says
he will promote financial
accountability and work to cut
costs, improve services and
raise the bar for safety.
"What have you done for
Oakland Park?" all three were
asked at the forum.
"I bought my house, and I
pay my taxes," Aragon said.
"I run four Toastmasters
clubs, three in the city of
Oakland Park and one
bilingual."
He helps people buy and
sell homes and commercial
real estate, and he helps some
downsize to smaller spaces.
Adornato said he was
part of the first city Local
Government Academy, or
LGA. Before annexation, he
helped arrange public forums
with Oakland Park and Fort
Lauderdale and lobbied
residents to vote to become
part of Oakland Park.
Shank, also an LGA
graduate, said he went door to
door in his neighborhood over
the issue of traffic control
devices. He also has worked


on sewer, lighting and park
issues. He recently suggested
cost-saving measures to the
city regarding water bills,
recommendations the city has
implemented.
The three agree on the need
to curb pain clinics in the city.
Adornato supports a city
ordinance to restrict the
clinics but says the city
can only do so much. "The
city has an ordinance that
ensures few can come into the
city, but we have to ensure
the state legislature does
something, too. We need to
tell the legislature they need
to eliminate pain clinics," he
says.
He said coverage of pain
clinics is not how he wants
to see the city featured on
CNN. He will bring his skills
to advocate on the issue in
Tallahassee.
"Pain clinics are bad, and
I give credit to my opponent
[Adornato] for fighting
against them," Shank said.
"Oakland Park has a
larger concentration of the
clinics than anywhere else in
Broward County or Florida,"
Shank added. He supports
efforts under way to remove
them.
Aragon said the city
is doing a good job of
controlling the clinics.

Trustee of the Year. [Photo courtesy of John Knox Village]


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
John Knox Village, a
not-for-profit continuing
care retirement community
in Pompano Beach, was
honored at the recent Florida
Association of Homes and
Services for the Aging, or
FAHSA, Awards Luncheon at
the Boca Raton Resort.
Orville P Brink was
presented the Trustee of the
Year Award, and the John
Knox Village Resident Senate
received the Resident Council
Award.
FAHSA was established
in 1963 as a Florida not-for-
profit corporation. Its purpose
is to provide leadership,
advocacy, and education
for retirement housing and


nursing home communities
that serve the needs of
Florida's retirees.
Brink was recognized
for his 22-year service on
the Board of Directors of
John Knox Village. During
his tenure Brink served
as its interim Executive
Director overseeing the
daily operations of the
community, chaired the health
care committee, and was
instrumental in the formation
of the John Knox Home
Health Agency which is an
integral part of the Village
health care delivery system.
Bob Scharmann, president/
CEO of John Knox Village
said that Brink's vision helped
to develop the Village into a
premier life-care community.


"Mr. Brink's relentless
pursuit of excellence has
kept us all focused on
providing the best services
in a compassionate and
caring manner," Scharmann
said. "His years of faithful
volunteer service have been
filled with extraordinary
devotion and love. He has
touched our lives and we are
grateful."
Brink said it has been a
great privilege to serve in
bettering the status of the
Village residents. "When
I see improvement it
encourages me to be an active
contributing part of the mix,"
he said. The second award
was presented to the Village's
Resident Senate. The Resident

Deerfield Beach Commission

wary about going forward

with new Cove parking lot


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach Commis-
sioners backed off endorsing
the redesign of the Cove
Shopping Center parking
lot after 46 landlords and
business owners signed
a petition protesting the
$2 million project. Their
reluctance came as Assistant
City Manager Keven Klopp
gave them a progress report
Tuesday night and caused
Dist. 4 Commissioner Bill
Ganz to say to his fellow
commissioners, "Are you
trying to fool people into
thinking this project will
happen? Either cut it, or
move forward. Let's not keep
dangling this carrot."
The project has moved
through various planning
phases for two years. Klopp
said the money spent to
date for design studies,


consultants, etc. is more than
$200,000. Mayor Peggy
Noland said she was never
a supporter of the redesign
and "hated to spend $2
million and not get one more
parking space." The proposal
is to install drainage, repave
and redesign the parking
area, put in new sidewalks
and landscape the area.
As currently designed, no
additional parking is gained.
Vice Mayor Joe Miller,
formerly a proponent of
the project, was concerned
about business disruption, the
same thing that concerns the
signers of the petition. Initial
estimates are that the work
will take 18 months.
"How can we get ADA
compliance with the least
disturbance to business
there?" Miller asked. He
urged Klopp to delay until
after the tourist season.

By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach It
took three years and nine
tournaments, but someone
finally caught the big one
- big ones might be more apt.
The KDW jackpot, worth
$81,715, went to Captain
Stan Hunt and the crew of
Rebound during the Saltwater
Showdown on Aug. 7, held
out of the Hillsboro Inlet.
Rebound took the KDW
by catching a 27.4 pound
dolphin, 74.4 pound wahoo
- also the biggest fish of
the tournament and a 23.6
pound king which helped
bag them a total payout of
$99,025. "We've won a few
tournaments but nothing like
this. It's definitely a dream
come true," said Hunt. "That
wahoo was so big."
"To put this in perspective,
in the 12-year history of the
whole tournament this is
by far the most impressive
catch," said Jamie Bunn,
tournament director. "It's not
just the KDW but also the size
of the catch. And fishing is


typically not as productive in
August as it can be."
Hunt and his crew didn't
have to go very far to get their
record setting catch.
"We' re local charter
fisherman right out of the
Hillsboro Inlet. Basically we
caught the big wahoo right

Hunt.
It's a phenomenal story.
They're just young, blue-
collar guys trying to make a
living on the water as charter
fisherman," said Bunn.
But for Hunt, the catching
the elusive KDW didn't just
start with lines in that day.
"I' ve been fishing everyday
that week. I pretty much
found out what the fish were
doing," said Hunt, who
added that it was a team
effort. L\ c ything happened
perfectly."
Total payouts for the
tournament were $145,730.
Native Son took home the
second biggest winnings with
$19,165, followed by Pop A
Top with $7,810 and Pauly's
World winning $4,965.
Asked what he plans to do
with the money Hunt said,
"I'm getting married soon so
I'm hoping to upgrade my
house a bit and start family."

swordfishing. We decided to
head offshore on Saturday to
bend the rod. We were not
able to fish the tournament
going on inshore so we
figured we would bend the
rod on a broadbill. We ended
up with three good sword
bites on Saturday which
yielded two nice
fish. I was fishing
with Kevin and
Zach Mahfood
from Lighthouse
SPoint who are avid
swordfishermen
themselves. Sea
conditions were
prime and the
current was light
allowing us to really
cash in on our bites.
When swordfishing
watch of the in the daytime,
weather and current


conditions play a giant role weather on the swordfish
with respect to your hook-up grounds. As we arrived to our
ratio. What we have noticed is destination at around 7 a.m.
that driving the boat correctly we noticed four water spouts
at the right angles sure seems at one time. Scary to say the
to make a difference on the least. We dodged the storms
end result. and were able to put two more
We had some serious bad nice swordfish in the boat that


day as well. We had friends
Kenny and Allen on board for
Sunday catch.

Cove
Continued from page 22
Another wrinkle in the project
is the need for landowners to
grant temporary rights of way
for sidewalk construction.
If they are unhappy with the
project, it will be hard to get
them to sign the releases, the
vice mayor said.
Commissioner Sylvia
Poitier said she never favored
the project and would prefer


spending money to create a
walkway between the Cove
and Sullivan Park.
Interim City Manager
Burgess Hanson warned that
if the commission delays the
project until after the season,
they may have to go through
the bidding process again.
A meeting between
interested parties and the
low-bidding contractor, West
Construction, is set for Aug.
24. The construction schedule
will be discussed then.

Council Award is presented
to a resident council that has
contributed exemplary time
and effort to the community
through a high degree of
dedicated services to its
residents and a commitment
to improving the quality


of life through volunteer
programs.
The John Knox Village
Senate has 13 committees

population.
Accepting the award was
current Senate President John


Hooker, who said it was a
great honor to receive the
prestigious award on behalf
of the all residents. \\ iIho '
the dedication and hard work


by all of these folks we would
not be deserving of this
award," Hooker said. "We
live in a 'Garden of Eden'
that lets us enjoy our home


and we all also appreciate the
hard work and dedication of
our executive director and the
many employees who care for
our every need," he said.
