House Dist. 91

candidates hear

the economy is

voters' biggest

concern

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Broward County Republicans will
choose a House District 91 candidate
in Tuesday's primary from three men
with deep roots in the community. The
open seat, vacated by Ellyn Bogdanoff
who is running for the Florida Senate,
has attracted health care businessman
David Maymon, attorney George Mo-
raitis and business consultant and web
publisher Yomin Postelnik.
The district spans eastern Broward
starting in Dania Beach and encom-
passing a small section of Boca Raton.
It takes a westward turn in Deerfield
Beach to include voters living north
of Hillsboro Boulevard. Forty-two
percent of those registered to vote in
the district are Republicans.
When asked what the one most
stated issue is in this campaign, all
three candidates said their constituents
are worried about the economy. Their
responses to this paramount issue fol-
low:
Maymon believes government
should be the conduit for attracting
new jobs to the state and would ask
for a legislative conference on job
growth strategies and ideas on at-
tracting skilled workers to the state.
He also urges reductions in property
taxes and property insurance and sup-
ports all taxpayer relief programs and
believes increases in taxation always
deter job creation and growth.
Moraitis said concerns about the
economy reflect his own priorities.
His answer to bringing good jobs to
the region is to build infrastructure,
further develop the port and airport,
improve education and make

Utility tax

revenue can

reduce millage,

build parks

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach City administra-
tors will continue their research into
the benefits of imposing a utility tax
on residents, a 10 percent surcharge
on electrical, gas and water usage that
could raise $5 million according to Fi-
nance Director Hugh Dunkley. Deer-
field Beach is the only city outside of
Hillsboro Beach, Lazy Lake and Sea
Ranch Lake, that does not levy the
fee and as a result is experiencing a
sharp rise in the millage rate. For the
proposed 2011-12 budget the increase
is almost one millage point.
Dunkley said as assessed property
values continue to decline, the utility
tax can stabilize revenues and help
build the undesignated fund balance.
Many cities use the tax for capital
improvements, he said.
Calculated at 10 percent, the number
all other Broward cities use, the cost
per residential unit can be estimated at
$80 a year, for a large industrial cus-
tomer, $114,000. In Pompano Beach,
the tax accounts for eight percent of
the revenue base, in Coconut Creek,
14 percent. As a 'use tax', everyone
pays, Dunkley said, not just property
owners.
Mayor Peggy Noland said the tax

Democrats celebrate 75th Birthday of Social Security


Congressman Ron Klein chats with Democratic supporter Maureen Kelley at the recent birthday party
to celebrate 75 years of Social Security. The Social Security Act was signed into law by President
Sa dARoosevelt on Aug. 14, 1935. In addition to several provisions for general welfare, the new Act cre-

Social Security


Continued from page 1
Ron Klein and Ted Deutch.
The party took place at
the Emma Lou Olson Civic
Center and included praise
for Social Security, cake and
candles.
But fears of the demise
of the program captured the
conversation
"Social Security is the most
successful program in the
United States," said Klein.
"It works also as a source of
financial freedom for disabled
Veterans. If it were not for
Social Security, 48 percent of
older Americans would be liv-
ing in poverty. Social Security
is the sole source [of income]
for 34 percent of older Ameri-
cans."
But as he praised the
program, his tenor heated
up when he explained that
the federal government has
been borrowing from Social
Security to pay for the wars
Americans are fighting.
Jimmy Weldon, represent-
ing the Florida Association of
Retired Americans, a group
of 213,000, said, "We need to

defend Social Security. The
government has been borrow-
ing for Social Security. The
debt so far is $2.6 trillion.
This is the people's money.
The money belongs to those
who contribute to it."
Including what the govern-
ment owes to Social Security,
Weldon added that there is
now "enough money to pay
benefits through 2037."
"It's immoral," Klein said.
"[Those funds] represent a
sacred bond between the gov-
ernment" and the people
who expect to get those
checks later in life."
Added Deutch, "Older
Americans languished in
poverty before the creation
of Social Security. It is a vital
lifeline. Today 53 million
people, including disabled
people, seniors and veterans,
receive payments."

program. Her major concern
is that Washington is talking
about "privatizing" the Social
Security program. "It would
be a mistake to turn it over
to Wall Street. People don't
realize that the [government]
would still take our withhold-
ings and turn it over to private
companies. Those companies
would have the choice as to
where the funds would go.
That could create a corrupting
influence," Adams said.
Debra Davis agreed. "Our
founding mothers fought to
get the vote [for women].
They did it because it was
the right thing to do. Now we
must protect Social Security
because it's still the right
thing to do."
Klein called "privatization.
a very bad idea. We remem-
ber when Bush proposed the
idea. Now it's coming back."
Deutch added, "Recession
has hit seniors hard. They
saw their retirements gambled
away on Wall Street. We are
now under the threat from
political sources [to privatize].
Americans don't want priva-
tization. We can't be deceived
that Social Security is in any
way part of the deficit. There
is a surplus in Social Secu-
rity."
As the candles were lit and
the traditional birthday song
rang through the meeting
room, Klein lit the candle,
saying, "We celebrate and
rededicate ourselves to Social
Security."

Make voting on Aug. 24 the most

important thing you do that day
By Phyllis Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF

We are told that 90 percent of primary voters look at the list of judges compet-
ing for their votes and decide that they don't know any of them so they either
leave blanks or worse-choose ethnic names that sound familiar.
There's no excuse for doing that this year. At The Pelican, we have created
a panel of Democrats and Republicans, young and old, who have attended live
sessions with all of the candidates. The panel has come up with either a con-
sensus recommendation or a no-choice in each contest. We are giving you the
benefit of our judgment.
Better yet, Pelican readers get the opportunity to see each candidate and read
what that candidate thinks he or she has to offer. You be the judge.
Be aware that these judges will be earning a very nice income for the next six
years. The incumbents want to remain in their judicial capacity and the chal-
lengers want their seats. And don't forget that these men and women may sit in
judgment of you. They may be in a position to determine your freedom or jail
sentence; your fine or award. Take this contest seriously.
Make a list of your choices and take it into the booth with you on Aug. 24.
Make voting on Aug. 24 the most important 'to do' in your busy day. Voting
is a privilege, an honor, and a right which we often just take for granted. As
you read this, our men and women are fighting and dying in wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan so that people like you and me will have that right.

Use what you know, what we offer

and check web sites before Aug. 24


We went to any forum that offered a debate, discussion or party concerning
a judicial election. We consulted with local attorneys, county employees, politi-
cal leaders and other elected officials. We added their recommendations to ours,
and here are the people we believe belong on the circuit and county benches as
judges, but you be the judge on Aug. 24. We have seven pages of profiles begin-
ning on page 25.

Letters to The Editor


Pelican staff needs to chose school

board candidate recommendation

by different standards, says reader

To the editor,

Thank you very much for providing bios on all four candidates who are run-
ning for the newly vacant school board seat for District 7. I am surprised that
you support Nora Rupert for this position.
You stated that you are backing her because she entered the race prior to Dr.
Parks decision not to run. I do not believe that a candidate should be chosen
based upon when they entered the race. This is total supposition on your edito-
rial staff's part.
I believe that you should have researched some of the possible reasons that
Dr. [Bob] Parks made his decision to finally spend more time with his family.
Of particular interest is the latest fiasco dealing with cafeteria contracts with
numbers that have 'gone completely wild.'
I believe that Travis Williams' father is the contractor involved with this event
and this is one important reason not to support him and in addition to several
other facts that were listed in the New Times this past week.
Also, Ms. Rupert received her reading certification in 2007 and was a part
time substitute up until recently. Yes, she got signatures instead of paying the
fee and this is commendable. Possibly your staff should also check her areas of
certification to make sure that she does not mention, as she has, that she is also
qualified to teach gifted students.
As you mentioned, Russell Kaufman is a viable candidate even at the young
age of 25. This qualifies him as the youngest candidate to ever run for this of-
fice. In addition, he owes absolutely no favors to anyone. His ideas are fresh and
are backed by his sincere love of the Broward County School system himself.
Bottom line, I think that you should have based your decisions on whom to
back after completing more background information.

Whatever happened to
voting on election day?


To the editor,


WM Mayor Gary Resnick
should donate now, not later


To the editor,


Until a few years ago one could
request an absentee ballot if he or she
were going to be away at the time of
the election or if they were home-
bound in a wheelchair. Then to reduce
costs the Supervisor of Elections set
up early voting facilities for the absen-
tee folks to vote before they left town,

higher than processing votes cast on
election day at a neighborhood polling
place.
Somehow the above process "es-
caped" and non-absentee voters
started using it. Many folks may not
understand or don't care that it costs
three times as much to process the
early votes which causes our taxes
to be higher. They are spending their
tax dollars and our tax dollars, tens
of thousands of dollars those dollars

To the editor,

I was reading the article written by Judy Wilson and I was appalled! I am a
Broward school employee and for the past 8 years I have dedicated my life and
career to the students of Broward County. As a result of my continued involve-

have no issues with her if her "hard working" allegations were true. She was a
substitute teacher and recently became a reading teacher on June of 2008. She
has only been teaching for 2 years with little or no learning gains. Please feel
free to check my facts. Also, she claims that she is a gifted teacher when she

Former Marine honored for

"going green" with auto

Sully Dawson [Left], owner of Eco-Friendly Auto Center in Oakland Park, re-
ceives his certificate from Gus Casamayor, founder of Certified Green Partners.
Dawson recently opened with an eye towards making his business as environ-

to become more green in order to save money and lower their impact on the

PELICAN STAFF
As a veteran of the United
States Marine Corps, Sully
Dawson bled the Corps' sig-
nature scarlet and gold colors
for eight years. But these
days, it's the color green that
concerns him most.
"If I can be green why
can't every other business?"
asked Dawson, owner of
Eco-Friendly Auto Center in
Oakland Park. Dawson was
recently certified as a "Green
Partner" by Certified Green
Partners, an organization that
aims to help businesses and
the environment by encourag-
ing environmentally friendly
practices.


Dawson is the first auto
mechanic in Florida to be
certified by Certified Green
Partners.
"He's a pioneer. Eventually
we'll all demand green auto
service," said Gus Casamayor,
founder of Certified Green
Partners. "There is a way to
help the environment in every
business."
The City of Hialeah was
also recently certified by the
group. Dawson says he's
motivated by his two boys and
wants to do his part to help
leave them a cleaner planet to
grow up in. "We're making
the earth better one oil change
at a time."

Beach briefs
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER

Local pastors will
fight fire fee

Pastor Tony Farmer ap-
pealed to city commissioners
Tuesday night not to remove
the exemption of non-profit
organizations from Deerfield
Beach's fire fee.
Farmer, a member of the
Ministerial Association, said
"If this goes forward, we will
be here en masse."
Levying the fee on houses
of worship would amount
to less than one percent of
the budget," Farmer said.
"Churches are struggling too.
This is not the right step to
take."
While the proposed fee
contained in the new budget
is $135 per residential unit,
buildings housing non-profit
entities would be charged per
square foot. Fee for a 10,000
square-foot building would be
$3,000 a year. Commissioners
approved a resolution August
3 to eliminate the non-profit's
exempt status.
Vice Mayor Joe Miller, said
this week, he does not favor
including churches in the fire
fee.

Poitier proposes
increasing commission
by two, at-large seats
City Commissioner Sylvia
Poitier has proposed increas-
ing the numbers on Deer-
field's commission. Poitier,
who must run in March 2011
to retain her seat, asked that
an ordinance amending the
city charter be drawn that
calls for the addition of two
at-large seats making a seven-
man board.
Poitier said the present situ-
ation, staggered terms, "is not
working." She asked that the
charter amendment be placed
on the March ballot and also
asked City Attorney Andy
Maurodis to determine the
number of signatures needed


to get the amendment on the
ballot if the commission does
not concur. Maurodis said he
thought the charter required
the support of 10 percent of
the voters in the last election
to achieve an initiative.

Hanson getting a title
upgrade
Assuming Burgess Hanson
and the city commission can
agree on a contract, Hanson
will no longer be the "in-
terim" city manager but will
own full title to the city's top
administrative post. Hanson
has been acting city manager
since Mike Mahaney was
fired in January. Tuesday
night, Commissioner Marty


Popelsky proposed that the
"interim" be deleted from
Hanson's status. The rec-
ommendation won instant
approval from the remainder
of the board. Mayor Peggy
Noland, who next to Hanson
said, "I'm glad you are in this
seat, Burgess."

Cove parking lot
construction is topic
of meeting
A meeting to discuss reno-
vations to the Cove Shopping
Center parking lot will be held
Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 5 p.m. in
the city commission cham-
bers. City representatives and
the contractor West Construc-
tion will address the concerns


of Cove business owners and
landlords. The proposed $2
million redo involves new
sidewalks, draining, paving,
lighting and landscaping. Ini-
tially Community Redevelop-
ment manager Keven Klopp
recommended the work be
done in phases to reduce the
impact on businesses there.
Under that plan, the work
could take 18 months.
Business owners in the
Cove, who do not want the
project to go forward, have
turned in a petition containing
41 signatures supporting their
position.

Tourism gets boost from

Pompano chamber leaders


By Anne Siren
PELICAN STAFF
Elaine Fitzgerald, Beach
Vacations Rentals, chair of
the tourism development
task force with the Pompano
Beach Chamber of Com-
merce, had a lot to smile
about this week.
The first Youtube version of
a slideshow featuring Pompa-

tion went online this week.
Visit pompanopelican.com to

Fitzgerald, who owns
several vacation rentals in
Pompano Beach, also owns an
aerial photography company.
Photos in the slide show,
taken by Fitzgerald, depict a
Pompano Beach that is ready
for visitors.
"I want everyone to send
the link to their families and
friends and send the message,
'Take a look at Pompano
Beach. After you do, come
on down for a visit.' Every
visitor we get means more
jobs for our city," she says.

One of the many highlights
of the Lighthouse Point

week was the Texas Caviar
served by Linda Bourguet,
Merle Norman, 18019 NE 24
St., Lighthouse Point. More of
that later.
This was a new idea for the
chamber. Guests followed


maps around The Shoppes of

owners who offered refresh-
ments to them. After the Tex-

to dessert at Mille Walsh's

offered Gelato Fino Des-

chiffons, key lime and other
wonders of the pastry world.
Stuffed, we found our way

She fliami Heralb

Recommends

The Miami Herald recommends for Broward County Court, Group 20,
Trial Attorney, Steven A. Schaet over his political opponent.


GROUP 20
"Judge Kathleen Ireland's retirement created an open seat sought by Kenneth Gottlieb, a former legisla-
tor and Hollywood city commissioner, and Steven Schaet, a trial lawyer.
Voters have only good choices in this race. Mr. Gottlieb, 47, served in the state House from 1998 to
2006, when he was term-limited. Before that he spent six years on the City Commission. He runs his
S own law practice and does a lot of work representing clients before local governments. He has an
extensive community- service record. He has been an attorney for 21 years.

Mr. Schaet, 38, does criminal-defense work -- both misdemeanors and felonies. Before going into private practice in 2000 Mr. Schaet
spent two years at the Broward public defender's office in his first job as a lawyer.

Our choice is Mr. Schaet, though it wasn't an easy one to make. Mr. Gottlieb is smart and has a solid record as a progressive, often innova-
tive lawmaker. But making the laws and applying them in court are not the same thing. Though Mr. Schaet has fewer years as a lawyer on
his resume than Mr. Gottlieb, he has spent them almost exclusively in the same court where he seeks to become judge." Miami Herald
Editorial.

For Broward County Court Group 20
The Miami Herald Recommends
STEVEN SCHAET.

Mr. Schaet is running for Broward County Court Judge because he believes in the position, he respects the position and he can give Broward
County what they deserve. Unlike his opponent, he is not a politician, he has not held other political positions, rather, he is a trial lawyer
who appears before numerous Judges nearly every day and he is dedicated to being a great Judge, compassionate, fair and what Broward
County is looking for in their Judges.

Political Advertisement paid for and approved by Steven A. Schaet for County Court Judge, Group 20, Non-Partisan, Adam Harmelin,Campaign Treasurer. Bold added for emphasis.

status this summer at two tournaments, the Platinium Gloves in Orlando,
and the National Golden Gloves in Nevada. Jordan Murphy [Right] came
away with junior championship titles in both events. Murphy boxes in the
65-pound, 9 to 10 age division. Lajuan Beltran [Left] took the Platinnum
Gloves in the 13 to 14 year old, 132- pound weight class. Murphy's older
brother CJ, not pictured, fought his way to the national semifinal match.
The PAL boxing program here is just two years old. The boys are coached

NOAA wants public to "Eat Lionfish" to help reduce invasive species


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Pompano Beach Christine
Acevedo knows a few tricks
when it comes to filleting
lionfish. And if NOAA, or
National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration, has
its way she'll be cooking up a
lot more of them over the next
few years.
Recently, NOAA launched


its "Eat Lionfish" campaign,
in the hopes that members of
the public can help reduce the
lionfish population.
With no natural predators
in this part of the world, the
population has surged and
threatens native fish popu-
lations, coral reefs and the
commercial and recreational
fishing industry.
For humans, a lionfish's
venomous sting causes great

Pompano Beach. It met the business end of a spear gun. [Photo courtesy of

pain but not death. That's
why, before launching its new
campaign, NOAA officials
were warning divers and
swimmers to stay away from
them and report any they see
to authorities.
"They don't stray very
far. Some fish roam far but
lionfish don't," said Renata
Lana, NOAA communica-
tions and outreach specialist
and head of its "Eat Lionfish"
campaign.
But now the problem has
gotten too big to ignore. "We
used to think you could kind
of avoid them but the numbers
have increased so substan-
tially that may not be the case
anymore," said Lana. That's
where people like Acevedo,
dubbed the "Lionfish Czar,"
come in.
"Our main goal as NOAA
is to keep monitoring the


situation. We're not enough to
actually make an impact. We
have to call on the rest of the
public," said Lana.
Acevedo is a volunteer
with Vone Research, Inc.,
a non-profit group based in
Pompano Beach dedicated to
decimating the lionfish popu-
lation in South Florida. Their
website www.lionfishkillers.
org features tips on hunting
lionfish, information on sight-
ings, a blog and even a video
by Acevedo on how to clean
and get the lionfish ready to
fillet.
Vone Research's volunteers
are even working on their own
line of specially-designed
lionfish hunting products.
Stephen Attis, also of Vone
Research, says his organiza-
tion recently partnered with
the South Florida Spearfishing
Club. "We're trying to unite


the diving community against
this common enemy. This is a
grass roots effort. They could
affect everything if we don't
act now," said Attis. "These
fish are dangerous. They can
really cause some serious
damage, depending on where
it gets you."
Acevedo knows first hand
what a sting is like. She got
stung while cleaning a dead li-
onfish. "It was a very painful.
It's a burning, tingling sensa-
tion and my finger was swol-
len for a few hours. My whole
hand for an hour or two."
Even with the public's help,
NOAA officials don't expect
the invasive predator to be
wiped out entirely. The goal
now is to get the population
to a manageable number and
keep it from growing.
NOAA is partnering with
local groups to help train
members of the public on how
to safely catch or kill lionfish.
But Lana still cautions people
with no training to report
lionfish. "You have to take out
27 percent of adults per month
every year" to get the popula-
tion under control.
Originally from the Western
Pacific and Indian Ocean,
lionfish were introduced into
the Atlantic Ocean in the
1980s and 90s by aquarium
owners who didn't want their
beautiful, but deadly pets
anymore.
"They started in Florida

and spread all through the
Caribbean and up to North
Carolina," said Lana. "They
eat 56 different fish. In some
locations they have cleared
out those fish up to 90 per-
cent and they compete with
snapper and grouper for food
supplies."
According to NOAA, the
lionfish population in North
Carolina alone is up 700 per-
cent between 2004 and 2008.
Lana says new research on
South Florida and other areas
is coming out soon. "In some
locations we're talking 200
lionfish per acre. That's a lot.
And it's looking like there's a
lot more than that."
As for how they taste, "De-
licious," says Acevedo. "The
taste of the meat is compara-
ble to hogfish or grouper. It's


sort of sweet."
To report lionfish sightings,
call Paula Whitfield, NOAA
Beaufort Laboratory, at 252-
728-8746 or email at Paula.
Whitfield@noaa.gov. Be
prepared to provide coordi-
nates of where the lionfish
was found and at what depth.
If possible, photographs or


video should accompany
the email. To treat lionfish
stings, NOAA recommends
immersing the wound in hot
water 100 to 110 degrees
Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
Do not burn the skin and seek
medical attention as soon as
possible. It is recommended
that calls be made as soon as


possible to the Aquatic Toxins
Hotline at the Florida Poison
Information Center in Miami
at 1-888-232-8635, where
medical experts will advise
victims immediately. The
Hotline is available 24/7. For

The Painted Pickle impresses with tasty sandwiches


and friendly ambiance in the heart of Wilton Manors


By Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN FOOD WRITER
Somewhere between a local
deli and a neighborhood bistro
lies the raison d' tre of the
Painted Pickle.
Described as a del'istro,
this convivial eatery serves
up a wide selection of classic
sandwiches, wraps and fresh
salads.
Opened in September of
2009, this quaint little spot
is the brainchild of restaura-
teurs Graham Parker and his
business partner Louis Berlin.
"We wanted to start a sand-
wich shop as we noticed a
real need for one in the area,"
says Parker, who also runs a
contemporary furniture store,


Urban Dwell, right next door.
"Initially, I wanted gourmet
style sandwiches. But the
feedback we got was that peo-
ple were really looking for a
traditional pastrami-style deli
in the neighborhood," says the
British-educated entrepreneur.
Born in Trinidad, Parker
spent most of his formative
years in London where his
father worked for the Hilton
hotel brand. "I later opened
three hotels in Guam and took
care of food and beverage.
Then, more recently, I was the
director of food and beverage
for the Hilton Miami airport,"
adds the gregarious business-
man.
The freshly prepared sand-
wiches are a lunchtime treat

Continued from page 1
was brought to commission-
ers' attention because "ev-
eryone wants facilities... we
need a recreation building,
parks. Before we do an\ thini'.
there will be a public hear-
ing. But if we don't have nice
parks, people will move to
Coral Springs and Coconut
Creek."
Commissioner Bill Ganz
said he is concerned about
the burden on industry the tax
would impose and said "the
only way I would support it
would be with a direct reduc-
tion in the millage."
Commissioner Sylvia
Poitier asked if a utility tax
was deductible on income
taxes as real estate taxes are
and when told 'no', said she
would rather just add to the
taxes and get the deduction.
Vice Mayor Joe Miller also
had reservations about the
new revenue source. "We've
shown good stewardship so
far (without the tax). I'd like
to explore a five percent tax."
Miller pointed out that not
having the tax has been an
incentive for businesses to
move here.
Many years ago, the com-
mission voted in a utility tax
which was later repealed by
referendum. In succeeding
years, attempts to initiate the
tax were soundly protested
by the citizens. As a result,
the city's millage rate has
sometimes been higher than
its neighbors. The proposed
operating budget is balanced
without a utility tax at $74.5
million with a millage of 6.76.

late breakfast there are bagels,
stuffed giant croissants and
delectable Lorraine or spinach
quiches.
The Painted Pickle also of-
fers a great selection of bever-
ages. Beer, wine and a myriad
juices, drinks and sodas are
all available to complement
a meal. Happy hour features
two-for-one on alcohol every-
day from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
"Although we get a lot of
calls for take-out, we also
deliver within 10 miles," says


Parker who is currently focus-
ing his energies on his new
dinner menu.
The novel concept re-
cently introduced is called the
"Pickle Noir," a gastronomic
journey to the Caribbean

with dinner seating spread
around the furniture store next

to prepare French-Caribbean
inspired cuisine. For example,
the Prawns Port Royal in co-
conut cr6me curry is absolute-
ly delicious. Also, the roasted
avocado with veggie mousse
is insanely good," says Parker
with great enthusiasm.
Other entries such as the
cheese topped chicken Cr6ole
in a papaya pure with curried
couscous or the Island Platter
meatless meatloaf in guava
gravy are all made to order for
$12.
In addition, the catering ser-
vice is highly touted while the
locale itself can be rented for
private functions. Free park-
ing is available and all major
credit cards are accepted.
Sandwiches such as the
flavor-packed meatball sub
start at $4.95, salads at $5.50.
Wine glasses are $5 while
bottles can be purchased start-
ing at $13. So next time you
are hungry and want to save
yourself a nickel have a
meal at the Pickle.

pay, and it's a luxury we
can't afford. In the absence
of a legitimate need to vote
early, the bli, inll rights "I
already voted" come with a
price.
What can we do about this
situation? (1) Significantly
reduce the number of early
voting locations from 11 to
4. The four locations would
be at the two Supervisor of
Election offices and at the
North and South regional
courthouses. (2) Allow people
to vote early if they provide a
sworn statement that they will
be away on election day and
allow others to vote early only
if they pay the incremental
cost to process their early
vote.

The latter would be about
$1-2/person. (3) Be pro-
active, encourage your elected
officials to accomplish the
above and save tax dollars.
The neighborhood polling
places are always open for
12 hours to permit people to
vote before or after work. and
parking is readily available.
During the past 42 years,
my experience in Broward
county (38 years in Pompano


Beach) has been that the wait
time at the polling place is
usually near zero except for
presidential elections when
the wait time was occasionally
up to 5 minutes. We all
should vote on election day
at our assigned neighborhood
polling place to minimize the
costs and our taxes.

Continued from page 6

their salaries this year. He then
announced that this event was
also a fundraiser for the Island
City Foundation Wilton
Manors' non-profit charity.
The Island City Foundation's
Articles of Incorporation state
that the purpose of the ICF
is to "principally to promote
and support public purposes
benefiting the residents of
Wilton Manors, including:
activities in the arts; various
social services; construction or
restoration of public facilities;
improvement or expansion of
programs in law enforcement,
education, recreation,
economic development and so
forth."
To the surprise of most in
attendance, Mayor Resnick
stated that a portion of the
money being collected at
this particular event was
being donated to charity.
The room quieted and the
people seated began looking
at each other in disbelief.
The event, he announced,
was holding a silent auction
and some of the items
donated were "slightly used."
The ceremonies continued
when the microphone was
passed to Commissioner
Ted Galatis. Immediately,
Galatis announced he was
putting $100 out of "his own
pocket" into the fund. After
other speeches were made,
Mayor Resnick announced he
too would pledge $500 out
of "next year's salary" to the
fund. Next year's salary?
Asking the very people who
give tirelessly of themselves
to help keep the city and
community afloat during a
time when most struggle to
find a job or to pay the FPL
bill is embarrassing. Turning
an annual appreciation
luncheon into a fund-raiser
is in poor taste. "Next year's
salary?" Why next year? I
challenge Mayor Resnick
to demonstrate leadership,
and write the $500 check he
pledged today!

Years practicing
law in Broward?
Approximately 8
years as an attorney,
and slightly over
10 years as a police

Civic/volunteer
activities With 4
small children I am

multiple teams (3 last
year) and spend 3 to
5 nights a week on
soccer fields teaching
soccer and how to be
a responsible member

volunteer whenever
possible in my local

Why should you be
a judge?
The Miami Herald
summed it up in their
endorsement of me:


1, SMm -


r -- m


'Temperament."
I am a product of
Broward County and
a single mom. I joined
the military as there
was no money for
college. I worked for
everything I have.
I am the best
candidate for judge
because I realize there
are mistakes of the
head and mistakes of
the heart.
My life experience
has taught me
compassion under
duress and that I am no
better than those whom
I will see on a daily
basis.

Why should you
be a judge? I want
to become a judge to
share with the public
the experience and
understanding of both
the judicial system
and people that I have
gained in 34 years of
practicing law. The
biggest challenge
facing the judicial
system is the public's
perception of a lack of
credibility.
With a broad range
of experience gained


through handling a
variety of matters
in numerous courts
throughout the United
States, I feel uniquely
qualified to bring
greater equality and
efficiency to the Courts
in Broward County. I
have the temperament
to handle all matters
that would come before
me, an understanding of
the diverse population
that constitutes the
population of Broward
County and their
problems so as to
judge fairly, and the
knowledge of the
law essential to be an
effective jurist.

Why should you be
a judge?
I consider myself
a person capable
of presiding over
a courtroom and
making judgments
because I have the
ability to remove my
personal opinions and
philosophies from
the decision making
process and base my
judgments purely on
the case facts, without
any prejudices.
My critical thinking
and analyzing skills
allow me to listen,
observe and decide


based on the 'real'
story and all sides
in the legal matter at
hand.
Further, I'm an
observer and active
listener both
crucial qualifications
in making any
judgments.
Finally, I am capable
of being able to make
the hard decisions and
not afraid to do so.
My decisions will be
based on what is fair
and just, even if it is
not the most popular
decision or public
opinion wanting it to
be something other
than the lawful one.

My 15 years in the

a long apprenticeship
providing me with a

which inmate does
not pose a threat to

It is not about judging

considering a matter

decision. It is about
considering legal issues
that will definitely affect
someone's life. When
a case is over, one has
freedom or jail, they
pay or get paid. Win,
lose or draw, people
want their day in court.
I understand this. No
one should leave the
courtroom wondering
"Where did this Judge
come from?" Look at

Why should you be
a judge?
These are difficult
times for most people.
I often hear how
frustrated people are
with the troubled
economy and how
our judicial system is
administered.
Judges are
encouraged to
engage in activities
to improve the law,


legal system and
administration of
justice. When elected
I will do everything
possible to suggest
and implement
improvements.
I am confident
that I have the
proper temperament
necessary to be an
effective and proper
judge; that I will
perform the duties
of the judicial office
impartially and
diligently and that I
have the knowledge
and intellect to
properly understand
and follow the law.

Why should you be a
judge?
Having been a Broward
circuit court judge for
the past eight years and
having received countless
awards for the work I do
with our troubled youth,
I can honestly say with
humility that I am a very
good judge.
We need to accept the
uncomfortable fact that
we have lost the hearts,
minds and souls of an
entire generation of youth.
I am on a personal and
professional mission to
change this state of affairs.
As a juvenile delinquency
judge, it is my statutory
duty under Florida
Statues to "rehabilitate"
the children that appear
before me. It is a very
difficult job. Be that as it
may, I have a reputation of


employing a "tough-love"
approach to dealing with
the kids.
Over 80 percent of the
thousands of children that
annually appear before
me are African-American
- like myself. Having
been raised in a similar
background as many
of these children, I am
uniquely poised to be able
to make a huge difference
in their lives.
I have presided over
most of the criminal cases
that involve Broward's
most high profile juvenile
cases. I wish to continue
serving the community
that I was born and raised
in.
My work ethic is
such that I am usually
the last judge to leave
the courthouse at night.
Without question, I work
hard for you. In return, I
simply ask that you work
equally hard to see that I
am re-elected on Aug. 24.


service and participation
in community activities,
strong moral compass,
even temperament
and principled and
empathetic approach to
the practice of law.
All 42 judicial
candidates possess legal
acumen, but the qualities
that will lead to a fair and
balanced approach and
consideration of legal
sentences and decisions
derives from practical
life experiences.
Practical life
experiences are gained
from interacting with
people, volunteering,
and giving back to
one's community. I
feel that my level of
community involvement
sets me apart from my
competitors and makes
me the best qualified
candidate for this group.

Law School Nova
Southeastern Shepard
Broad Law School
Years practicing law
in Broward County
- 10 years in Broward
County.
Civic/volunteer
activities I am co-
vice-president of an
organization by the
name of NAMI, National
Alliance on Mental
Illness. I volunteer my
time teaching a 12-week
class, sometimes twice a
year, to family members
who have relatives
suffering from mental
illness, mental illness
and drug abuse or mental
illness and alcoholism. I
also facilitate a support
group for family
members.
I am a member of
Kiwanis Tamarac and
volunteer my time
serving our children who
are less fortunate, such
as homeless children
living in shelters.
I am a Guardian ad
Litem representing
children's interests and
have been appointed in
this capacity numerous
times by the Court.


Why should you be
a judge? I would be
a capable judge, and I
am the best candidate
for this job based on
my life experience, my
knowledge of the law
and my community
involvement. I went back
to school after working
for attorneys for 15 years
after having to overcome
much adversity in my
life. This has made me
who I am and taught me
the importance of having
the right temperament,
patience, impartiality,
integrity, the right
demeanor, respect,
fairness and most of all,
honesty, while having to
follow the law. Being
a judge is an extension
of my involvement to
public service in our
community.

Letter
Continued from page 6
doesn't even hold any gifted
endorsements. Also, while
getting her 1,300 signatures,
Mrs. Rupert was caught
several times on school
grounds, which is illegal,
violating Florida Statute
1400.1; specifically number 5.
There was an article published
by former School Board
Member, Marty Rubinstein
about this matter. She also
violated the non-partisan race


by mentioning that she was
"Not" a Democrat on her
flyers. Mrs. Rupert has not
only lied to the public but to
the parents of the very kids
she wants to stand up for.
Something else I would
like to point out is, if Mrs.
Rupert is so dedicated as
stated in the article why didn't
she stay until the end of the
budget meeting at KCW on
July 29. By the end of the
meeting, which was well after
midnight, the only candidate
from District 7 left in the


room was Mr. Kaufman.
As a school employee with
friends and family members
attending and working for
Broward schools, it infuriates
me that a newspaper is
endorsing someone just
because they "want the
job!" This is ridiculous. Just
because someone wants
something doesn't necessarily
make them qualified. I always
wanted to be an astronaut,
and I want the job, but I don't
think I will make a good
astronaut, same goes for Mrs.
Rupert. As a keen reader I
expected a more researched
endorsement.

to exceed $18 million. The
ordinance also provides for
the redemption of outstanding
water and sewer bonds and
establishes accounting funds
and standards. The ordinance
explicitly excludes the ad
valorem taxes and taxing
authority to pay the bonds.
The only funding for this
debt is the pledge of gross
revenues of the water and
sewer system as security for
the bonds.
Proceeds from the bonds

will go to pay a portion of the
costs of improvements to the
city's water and wastewater
system. They also will go
to refinance Series 1994
bonds, used for building and
replacing water and sewer
lines. Those bonds mature in
four years.
The 2010-B bonds will
be funded through stimulus
funds. The commission
adopted ordinances to adjust
water and sewer rates to
accommodate needed funds to
issue water and sewer bonds.
The rate adjustments in the
FY 11 recommendation are
13.9 percent increase in water
rates and 5.4 percent increase
in wastewater rates.
City Manager John Stunson
and Underwood traveled to
New York City recently to
try to convince credit rating
agencies the city deserves
an excellent bond rating.
The meetings went well, and
the results are indicative of
that fact, Underwood told
commissioners.
The impact of the
improvement from Baa [the
rate the city had in 1973]
to AA- equates to about
$2.7 million in savings on
debt service, Underwood
explained.
When the ordinance came
up for first reading July 21,
Underwood was asked about
the city's current bond rating.
He responded, "Not." There
was no rating.
Underwood told
commissioners he expects
pricing of the bond issue to
occur Aug. 17, and a closing
will be Aug. 31.
