Pompano danced among three

counties before it stood alone

Pompano Beach has grown beyond
its 100-year anniversary of its incorpo-
ration and is the second largest city in
Broward Couny.
Other than Key West, which was al-
ready an important port and city by the
1820s, the towns of southeast Florida
came into being because of the rail-
road. In 1896 Henry Flagler decided to
extend his Florida East Coast Railway
south from West Palm Beach to Mi-
ami, opening up land that heretofore
had been a virtual wilderness.
All along the rail line small settle-
ments were established; most of them
were farming communities. In the
Pompano Beach area, the few hardy

individuals who had arrived before
the railroad, settled around what is
today known as Lake Santa Barbara,
eventually moved farther inland where
the town was growing. Local legend
has it that the name for the settlement,
"Pompano," came about from a nota-
tion made on a survey map by Frank
Sheen apparently he had dined on
the tasty fish and wanted to remember
its name.
Whether or not the story is factually
true, there is no alternate account of
how the name came about.
Most of the early residents, black
and white, of the area came from

Deerfield Beach

"The thing that distinguishes Deer-
field Beach from, say Pompano
Beach, is that few vestiges of old
Deerfield remain. You would never
know this was once a little farming
town," said Carolyn Morris, executive
director of the historical society.
Morris's observation is correct.
Exempt the Butler House and a couple
of Kester Cottages, and few old struc-
tures remain; those that do have been
refurbished beyond recognition. Once
almost entirely a farming community,

In fact, the history of Wilton Manors
goes back to the early 1890s with the
arrival of William C. Collier. When he
got here, there were Seminole Indians
already in residence. A settlement,
centered at about Northeast 24 Street
and Dixie Highway, developed in the
early 1900s. There was a store, a train
station and a number of houses. The
area was called "Colohatchee," Semi-
nole for "Collier's by the River."

The quiet little city of Oak-
land Park, one of the original
municipalities in Broward
County, was settled by Wil-
liam C. Collier, on a site on
the north fork of the Middle
River, in 1892. Called "Colo-
hatchee" by the Seminole

Indians, the area went from
NE 16th Street to Commercial
Boulevard, and from the FEC
railroad to Powerline Road.
The town was originally
chartered as Floranada in De-
cember, 1925. Its boundaries
went from the beach, west to
U.S. 441, and from the north
fork of Middle River, north to
Cypress Creek.

Tiny Hillsboro Beach

maintains its quiet,

exclusive lifestyle

By Carmen McGarry
There are no signs, lights, shops or side streets in Hillsboro
Beach, only 3.2 miles of beach, homes and what I call our "sec-
ond street," the Intracoastal Waterway.
Hillsboro Beach is very private, quiet and almost 'hokey' as
residents try to maintain their rare lifestyle. Condos are limited
in height and development is frowned upon.
But the town is abundant in history. Chartered in 1939, Hills-
boro Beach has its own police force and water plant but out-
sources fire rescue services to Deerfield Beach. The Hillsboro
Lighthouse marks its southern boundary of the town; Deerfield
Beach is the northern border. The lighthouse, built in 1907,
has its own history and is now the most powerful beacon in the
world. Its original buildings have been preserved, and

A group of investors, known
as the American-British Im-
provement Company, planned
the Biarritz of America, and
advertised internationally to
those of "Social Prominence."
Full page ads in the New York
Times in 1925, described a
small smart development, sell-
ing lots starting at $4,000 for
those whose greatest wealth is
their charm and culture. The
club would offer 3,600 magic
acres of sun-kissed shoreland
within 48 hours of 85 percent
of the people in America.
Purchasers of the Floranada
Club, were granted lifetime
memberships at its golf clubs,
the yacht club and the casino.
Founding members included
the Countess of Lauderdale,
Mrs. Horace B. Dodge, Dodge
Motor Cars; Mr. John S.
Pillsbury, Pillsbury Flour, and
the former King of Greece.
Opening Day was to be Feb.
3, 1926.
Their dreams were burst by
the devastating 1926 hurri-
cane. By late spring of 1929,
the town was bankrupt.
Floranada was quietly abol-
ished by referendum, and the
city was re-incorporated as
Oakland Park. The boundaries
were redrawn from the west
side of U.S. 1 to Northeast 3
Avenue and the North Fork
of Middle River to Prospect
Road. To the credit of those
involved, despite the demise
of Floranada, all outstanding
bills were paid. No debt was
left unpaid.
In 1947, the Florida En-
abling Act cleared the way
for Oakland Park to expand
from 361 acres to 1,035 acres,
returning the easternmost
border to the ocean. The Act
required approval of the vot-
ers in the proposed annexed
area. The voters approved the
annexation by an overwhelm-
ing majority.
However, Arthur T. Galt
owned more than 85 percent
of the proposed annexed land
and filed suit, claiming that
the vote was a sham. Appar-
ently the annexed areas had

Mr. Squeaky, 499 W. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach 786-247-7974 www.mrsqueaky.com

Mr. Squeaky Voted One of the Top Fifty Car Washes in USA

Mr. Squeaky Car
Wash, located at
499 West Atlantic
Boulevard, next to Taco Bell
and the RaceTrac Gas Station,
has been satisfying customers
with clean, shiny and dry cars
for four years.
Owner Richard Sasso, who
left the day to day practice
of law as a licensed Florida
attorney, is often onsite to en-
sure each and every customer
receives the attention to detail
Mr. Squeaky has become
famous for.
L\ N.ly customer is look-
ing for the best value in every
dollar they spend these days,"
says Sasso. "Our customers
are amazed at the value they
receive when visiting us for a
car wash. With washes start-
ing at just $8, including un-
limited use of free vacuums,
they are able to get the most
bang for their buck."
Not only is Mr. Squeaky's
car wash service priced right,
the quality of the car wash
equipment is second to none.
"Many older car washes
try to clean a vehicle with
outdated tc iihnl 1< .\v or in a
very short tunnel," says Sasso.
"At Mr. Squeaky, we have
a 135 foot long tunnel, the

Here's the line-up...
longest by far in the region,
and it is packed with car wash
cleaning equipment, including
pre-soak arches, high pressure
rinses, soap dispensers, dryers
and soft cloths. Our com-
petitors simply cannot achieve
our results in their limited tun-
nels." Sasso continues, "Our
exterior washes only take
about three minutes from the
time you drive onsite, and our
full service washes only take
about 8 minutes.
Each customer drives their
own vehicle through the car
wash tunnel, allowing them
the opportunity to watch the
exterior cleaning process first
hand and avoiding the unnec-
essary delay associated with

having the customer get out of
the car before the wash even
On a typical day at Mr.
Squeaky, you can see a wide
range of vehicles stopping in
for a car wash. From Buicks
to Bentleys, every car is treat-
ed with white glove service.
Sasso says, L\ c.yone
wants to make the most of the
limited free time they have.
By visiting Mr. Squeaky,
our customers are able to
take care of a basic need,
keeping their vehicle clean,
quickly, efficiently and at a
great price." A visit to www.
MrSqueakycom shows pic-
tures of the car wash equip-
ment, a sample menu of ser-

.. and the wash down

vices and even includes links
to past press coverage on the
car wash. "A couple of year's
ago we had NBC late-night
comedian Jimmy Fallon on-
site for a charity fundraiser,"
says Sasso.
"We are proud to have been
able to assist in raising thou-
sands of dollars for an orga-
nization that assists wounded
veterans and their families."
One of the joys for Sasso
is seeing the reaction new
customers have when they try
Mr. Squeaky for the first time.
"I'll often meet a first time
customer after the car wash to
ask them for feedback," says

Sasso. "New customers sim-
ply cannot believe the quality
of car wash they receive in
such a short amount of time.
Our customers truly become
raving fans of Mr. Squeaky
once they give us a try. In
fact, Mr. Squeaky has been
voted one of the top 50 car
washes in the entire country,
and we are the only South
Florida car wash to receive
this honor."
With hours of operation
from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days
a week, today is the perfect
time to stop by and clean that
dirty car at Mr. Squeaky's
award winning car wash.

Melvin Anglin owned about
90 percent of the town. He
paid $27,000 at 6 percent
interest, due in five years. His
family thought he paid too
Then came the Depression.
In 1933, the town went into
bankruptcy, and the charter
was revoked. LBTS reverted
to unincorporated status and
stayed that way for the next
14 years. In 1941, Melvin
Anglin, with the help of his
two sons, completed construc-
tion of the 800-foot fishing
pier, built to bring people to
town. The charge to get on the
pier, for those not "restricted"
by race was 10 cents. The
beaches were segregated back
then. To the south, Galt Ocean
Mile beach was used strictly
by blacks. To the north, Glenn
and Lucy Friedt were a couple
of newcomers in 1939.
The town reincorporated
Nov. 30, 1947 with the help of
Charter Committee Chairman
Friedt. The incorporation was
subject to a referendum by the
town's property owners. The
vote: 98 for, six against.
Margaret Linardy was
elected the first mayor of the
new Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
and the first woman mayor in
the state.
A volunteer fire department
was established in 1960 with
22 men and a pumper truck.
The three-man police force
handled 10 traffic arrests a
week and about 20 burglaries
a year.
In 1960 and '62, the town
took straw votes on build-
ing a bridge on Commercial
Boulevard to link with the
mainland. The first vote was
95 percent opposed. In the
second, it was 50/50.
On Oct. 16, 1965, the mil-

lion dollar Commercial Bou-
levard bridge opened. Mayor
Gil Colnot opposed the bridge
and continued a kind of guer-
rilla warfare. First the town
refused to light its half of the
bridge. When that failed, Col-
not tried unsuccessfully for 10
years to limit bridge openings
to the quarter or half hour.
In 1973, by referendum
vote, the town lowered its
height limit from 50 feet to
33 feet. Opposition saw the
height limit as a threat to the
town's growth and income
By the mid-'80s, the boom-
ing local economy of the Col-
not years had leveled off. The
population seemed to plateau
and even drop.
By the late '80s, Villa Ser-
ena, the Friedt family's winter
home, had grown to encom-
pass all four corners of El Mar
and El Prado. The hotel group
was called Villas-By-The-Sea
Resort. The Friedts came up
with a plan for a $20 million
retail and resort complex to
encompass all their property
and El Prado, the concourse
between town hall and the
beach. The 8.5 acres of pri-
vate and public land would
hold a hotel, restaurants,
shops, five floors of parking
and a pedestrian plaza.
A report by Goodkin Re-
search predicted the resort
would generate $400,000
annually in tax revenues,
$78,000 of which would stay
in LBTS.
But, instead of seeing dollar
signs, voters saw shadows
- of highrises they predicted
would line the oceanfront if
they allowed any exception to
their three-story height limita-
tion, set in 1972. They voted
the whole thing down twice,
in 1986 and in 1988.

In 1985, a state law mak-
ing it illegal for one person to
hold two municipal positions
was invoked, and Forrest had
to decide which position he
wanted. He chose to serve as
town manager. He was fired
three years later in the after-
math of the Friedt controver-
sy. The town went through a
series of town managers after
Forrest was fired. Each stirred
up controversy.
Dave Biba, a retired General
Motors employee and presi-
dent of the Chamber of Com-
merce, once said the Town
Commission had changed
since he moved to town in
1986. "The belief back then
was, if it ain't broke, don't fix
it. Well, it's broke. The infra-
structure is deteriorating, the
town suffers from a resident
versus business-owner divi-
sion, and there's no master
In 1997, the town annexed
three 18-story Sea Ranch
Club condos and added 1,600
residents. The number of
permanent residents residing
in town more than doubled in
October 2001, when LBTS
successfully annexed the
Intracoastal Beach Area, a
coastal neighborhood just
north of town.
The number of permanent
residents residing in town
more than doubled in October
2001, when LBTS success-
fully annexed the Intracoastal

borhood just north of town.
Recent battles have re-
volved around bringing back
the VFD, which was accom-
plished, preserving height
limits and restoring unity to
the town. Sources: Town of

the early '50s, no one in-
volved in its development saw
Lighthouse Point as a mere
extension of either Pompano
Beach or Deerfield Beach.
The developers first attracted
to the area Larry Tunison,
Carl Williamson, Robert Bate-
man and later Robert Sullivan
- clearly saw the benefit of
creating a waterfront commu-
nity by dredging and filling
the swampy land. Early on,
the first elected officials were
responsible for upscaling the
city by creating codes that
required minimum house
sizes, prohibited truck parking
and off-color language in city
parks, required in-ground gar-
bage cans, mandated reduced
signage, limited garage sales
- visionary ideas in South
Florida in the 1950s.
The first volunteers were
intent on running a city with-
out real estate taxes and so
they kept paid-for services to
a minimum. The first mayor
Russell Clarke worked for
a small salary and a house.
Dixon Ahl, a retiree from
North Carolina agreed to be
town treasurer and held the
job for 15 years without tak-
ing a paycheck.
Dan Witt, a college athlete,
created youth athletic pro-
grams and parks. He founded
the pram program which ex-
ists to this day. The first town
marshal was yacht broker
William Harrington. He hired
two auxiliary officers and
paid them $1 for every four-

hour shift worked. There was
no budget for guns so it was
a few years before the police
department was outfitted with
Fires too were contained
by volunteers with help from
Pompano Highlands Volunteer
Fire Department. The first
fire truck was purchased in
1957 a 20-year-old LaFrance
Later, Darlene Gauthier
found a crew of willing read-
ers to man a library, and Peg
DeGroff's interest in appear-
ances sparked the beautifica-
tion efforts. The town offi-
cially became a city in 1956
due to the efforts of Tunison
and his attorney, state legisla-
tor Jack Musselman. While
there was no serious opposi-
tion in Tallahassee to grant-
ing the community a charter,
there was one administrative

problem. Of the more than
100 petitioners for the char-
ter, 77 were Republicans. In
those days state government
was run by Democrats who
had no interest in adding
numbers across the aisle. The
matter was resolved when the
Republicans re-registered as
Pompano Beach made
several attempts to incorpo-
rate Lighthouse Point but was
turned away. A study in 1969
made by the Broward County
Government Efficiency Com-
mittee recommended reduc-
ing the number of cities in
Broward to eight, splitting
LHP and giving half to Deer-
field Beach, half to Pompano.
The study so enraged all

cated government. The strong
mayor form designated in the
charter remained unchanged,
but town administrator Gerry
Renuart was hired along with
other professionals, and in
1976 the first ad valorem tax
was approved. Guiding the
city through these growing-up
years was Mayor Frank Mc-
Donough elected in 1968 and
who held the job until 1993
except for a five-year hiatus.
By the end of the '80s, there

was little property left to be
developed in the city. Now re-
development is underway and
city officials strive to meet the
challenges of an aging infra-
structure. The city operates
on a $12 million budget that,
thanks to still-conservative
financing, manages to keep
tax rates low. And the spirit
of volunteerism remains a
vital force in this community
which strives to be the best
sort of hometown.

The Pelican 5


A landmark business, Kraeer Funeral Home and

Cremation Center has served the area since 1952

Little did R. Jay Kraeer
dream that the funeral
home he opened in 1952
would become a significant part
of Pompano Beach history! The
handsome white building at 200
N. Federal Hwy. is a landmark
standing for 56 years on the same
corner. It's the impressive, white
Kraeer house, not the street sign,
that identifies Second street on
Federal Highway.
When R. Jay Kraeer and his
wife, Lorraine began he was the
funeral director and she became
his right arm, taking over the
business end of things.
"We were the first official fu-
neral home in Pompano Beach in
1952," says Marge Muth, director
of community outreach who has
been with the company for 18
and one-half years." Back then,
Federal Highway was a two-lane
road. We now have eight Kraeer
locations in Broward County,
all located on major, easy access
She continues. "In December
of 2006, we merged with Dig-
nity Memorial Funeral Homes,
allowing us to handle local and
out of town burials and crema-
tions throughout the nation and
Canada. We have a number of
employees who have been with
us over 40 years. Now in their
80s, they are still valuable. Bob
Russell is R. Jay's nephew who
started here as a very young man
and still serves as a funeral direc-
tor and advisor.
Over the years, Kraeer has been
very active in the community,
sponsoring many fund raising
events from golf tournaments to
fashion shows. Most recently,
was one of the Addiction models
in a Hospice fundraiser fashion
show. She admits, "Modeling for
a good cause is a fun volunteer
Marge who served as Kraeer's
Pre Needs Manager for 13 years
is now involved in community
outreach. Her job to promote
Kraeer's services often has her
doing seminars for all of the
churches, chambers of commerce
and service organizations in the
area. Kraeer supplies calendars to
26 local churches of all denomi-

R. Jay Kraeer and his wife, Lorraine opened
their first funeral home in Pompano Beach at
200 N. Federal Hwy. where it still serves the
local community and remains the home base
for what is now an 8-location group.

was a



Kraeer offers many services
Asked about services, Marge
beams. "We offer it all," she says
enthusiastically. "Our claim to
fame is that we house your loved
one from the phone call alert to
the grave. We offer our own re-
moval team with our own trained
employees. We have our own
crematory and central care facility
right here in Pompano Beach. As
a member of Dignity, we have ac-
cess to cemeteries, funeral homes,
mausoleums and niches for cre-
mation. We are able to arrange for
scattering ashes at sea for those
requesting it. "
Some of the newer and popular
Kraeer services include a grief
library, preparation of everlasting
memorials, bereavement travel
program, an ever after grief
therapy program for adults and
children. And an event room is
available to families who wish to
celebrate a loved one's life with
specific theme parties.
Preplanning is the smart thing
to do
Kraeer Funeral Homes has li-
censed Advanced Planning coun-
selors in all locations to assist
those who are thoughtful enough

to pre-plan ahead for themselves
and their families.
Marge can't say enough about
the value of preplanning and how
it relieves the stress, often felt by
families at the time of a parent's
death. "It's the answer to the
emotional stress and over spend-
ing," she says. "I have witnessed
countless families having to make
decisions on the worst day of
their lives as they face the loss of
a parent.
Many of our funeral directors
are faced with a family of dis-
tressed, grieving children who do
not know what their loved ones
may have wanted in the type
of burial, funeral, urn or casket
and the vital information, often
not known, must be provided in
order to get the essential death
certificate. Preplanning elimi-
nates all of these problems, and it
freezes the cost of burial.
Bob Milanovich, marketing
director and resident relations at
John Knox Village, is a strong
advocate ot preplanning. "I did
it with my parents," he says. "I
encourage any resident in our
Village who has not prepared for
this eventuality to be prepared,

like a good Scout. Why would
you leave the people you love
with this kind of responsibility? If
you've taken care of things, your
family will experience the relief
and the dignity of your decision,
and they will do the same for
their children."
The grim reaper no longer lurks
around funeral homes. Kraeer
Funeral Homes offers beautifully
furnished and cheerful chapels,
visitation and event rooms.
Marge explains that Kraeer has
always treated the life lived by
the deceased as one to be cel-
ebrated. "We've called our ser-
vices, Celebration of Life for a
long time. In fact that description
is now common usage. All of our
newer services are the result of
needs expressed by families over
our six and one half decades in
business. We're always adapting
to and incorporating change to
adjust to the needs of the world
around us." Marge adds, "Al-
though cremation has gained in
popularity and is now over 50
percent, Kraeer offers many op-
tions to provide services to the
families for cremation.

today it is used by the U.S.
Coast Guard as a vacation re-
treat. Tours of the lighthouse
are available through the
Hillsboro Lighthouse Preser-
vation Society which several
years ago completed a major
restoration of the lighthouse
and replaced its Fresnel lens.
In 1922, land at the town's
southern end was purchased
by Herbert Malcolm who later
became mayor. Malcolm built
a private school for wealthy
students who wintered here.
Later it became the exclusive
Hillsboro Clubs and over
the years, has hosted many
famous visitors.
The Barefoot Mailman put
his footprint in the sands of
Hillsboro Beach. His memory
is preserved in a monument at
Town Hall, the original statue
a landmark of a popular res-
taurant of the same name that
thrived here in the '60s.
Ernest Wooler, from Man-
chester, England, and a
founder of the Rolls Royce
Corporation, was the first
town mayor. At the time, there
were but 17 voters, A1A was
unpaved and a narrow, hand-
operated bridged connected
the town to Pompano Beach.
The Town Hall was a small
cottage on A1A with phone
privileges courtesy of the
infamous Cap's Place which
was located on the west side
of the Intracoastal Waterway.
The present location of Town
Hall was dedicated in 1955.
Many notable names are
among those that first came
to this seaside paradise:
Russell French, a Detroit
financier; Edward Stettinius
who was Secretary of State
under Franklin Roosevelt, A.
Henderson, founder of the
Avon Company and locally,
the Henderson Clinic and the
Henderson University School
at FAU; Arthur 'Bink' Glis-
son, the trusted caretaker of
the Stettinius estate who en-
couraged C. Oliver Welling-
ton to invest in acreage which
today is the City of Welling-
ton; Charles Stradella, an auto
industry pioneer and member
of the General Motors Board
of Directors and Clyde Shaf-
fer, a president of Breyers Ice
Today, the town's 2,500
residents are governed by
five commissioners, elected
at large, and who select the
Although the town is in an
idyllic location, it is not with-
out its problems. Hurricanes
and beach erosion are constant
issues and just maintaining
the status quo, which seems to
be the desire of the residents,
is not an easy task.

only two registered voters
among its residents.
In 1949, the circuit court
denied Gait's claims and up-
held Oakland Park's annexa-
tion to include the beachfront
property. Later that year the
Florida Supreme Court ruled
the Act null which returned
Oakland Park to its pre-1947
landlocked status.
Dixie Highway, the railroad,
agriculture and the develop-
ment of South Florida were
closely linked. Oakland Park
was no exception. As Henry
Flagler pushed his railroad
south, he envisioned resorts in
Miami, and farms in Broward.
Experienced farmers were
recruited to Oakland Park and
the farms benefitted from their
expertise. By February 1937,
Oakland Park's bean produc-
tion was notable enough to
rate mention in Florida Public
Works Magazine.

The next few decades saw
a flurry of proposed an-
nexations, suits, reversals and
challenges as Oakland Park,
Arthur Galt and Fort Lauder-
dale jockeyed for land and
residents. By 1953, Oakland
Park had secured Federal
Highway as its eastern border
and pushed south to 20 feet
beyond the south bank of the
North Fork of the Middle
River. City leaders reached an
agreement with Fort Lauder-
dale to give up the beach in
exchange for highly desired
territory in the north. The
new legal designation of this
determined city was "Greater
Oakland Park."
Most recently, Oakland Park
expanded its boundaries with
annexations to the north and
west, stretching west almost
to 441 and north to Cypress
Though recent progress
has been slowed by a slug-
gish economy, and the rapid

vious decades has deceler-

The Pelican 9

Dave Giannone at Aqua Toy Store, 800 S. Federal Hwy., Pompano Beach 954-415-3151

Dave Giannone returns to the business of marine services at the

same place he opened Giannone's Marine for than 20 years ago

Say Dave Giannone's
name around Pom-
pano Beach, and
most boaters will not only
know the man but will
probably have a story about
how Dave kept their boats
That's what Dave does.
He's a boat fixer.
Dave started officially
fixing boats professionally
more than 30 years ago with
a truck and a tool box.
Back then, what began
as dockside repair service
grew into a full sales and
service organization with 35
full-time employees.
The company's name,
Giannone Marine, took
off from the first day, and
Dave took on marine sales
becoming one of the larg-
est Regal dealers in South
Florida, selling 17 to 44-
foot luxury cruisers.
In 2002, Giannone sold
the business to Aqua Toy
Store. But eight years of be-
ing away from the business
made him think again about
his talent with boats.
Today Giannone is back.
This time at Aqua Toy Store
doing about everything he
did at Giannone Marine.
And the word is already out.

"Many of my former
clients are back, and as for
me? It's great to be here,"
says Giannone. "I need to
be here, It's in my blood. I
really enjoy it."
And to Giannone, it was
like riding a bike-so easy
to start it over. Located at
the Aqua Toy Store, 800
S. Federal Hwy., Pompano
Beach, Giannone offers full
service boatyard repairs
with a fuel dock opening
soon. The slogan? "From
bottoms to repower, we do
it all."
That include fiberglass re-
pairs, and Giannone says he
is doing numerous "marine
engine pre-purchase inspec-
Giannone's back in the
exact location of his former
business and has already
picked up plenty of yacht
brokerage action.
"I am buying and selling
50 to 70-foot vessels.
Dave Giannone's story is
one of the boating history of
Pompano Beach, a city of
oceanfront and inland canals
where thousands of boats
find berth.
And Dave Giannone is

estate "booming," Edward J.
"Ned" Willingham arrived
in the Fort Lauderdale area,
armed with a lot of money. He
was a very successful farmer
and manufacturer in Georgia,
wanting to try something new
in his later years. In 1925, he
platted "Wilton Manors."
Wilton Boulevard was to be
lined with expensive homes
for the successful entrepre-
neurs moving into the area. At
Five Points, Willingham con-
structed medieval towers as a
grand entrance and elevated
platform from which you
could select your home site.
The Towers were designed by
Francis Abreu, perhaps South
Florida's hottest architect at
the time.
By 1926, the housing
market had crashed, for about
the same reasons the market
crashed a couple of years
ago. There were precipitating
events, but ultimately it was
"irrational exuberance." Will-
ingham returned to Georgia,
where he died shortly thereaf-
ter. Unlike most developers of
the time, he made good on all
his debts.
His son Ned, Jr. and Perry
Mickel were left in charge.
They scaled back on Willing-
ham's vision. Wilton Boule-
vard became Wilton Drive
and opened to commercial
Mickel developed much of
the west end of town. He was
the town's second mayor.
George Richardson bought

the old Willingham estate in
1935 and built a golf course
on it. His son, George, Jr.,
served as city attorney and
city councilman. In 1938, Al-
var "Al" Hagen moved from
Illinois to Fort Lauderdale.
He got his foot into Wilton
Manors by winning a golf
match. In partnership with
Clayton Leaver, Hagen built
houses east of Wilton Drive
and commercial structures on
Wilton Drive.
Dave Turner, owner of
Turner and Taylor Feed Store
bought 283 lots from the Will-
ingham estate in 1945. Turner
was the Village of Wilton
Manors' first mayor, from
1947 to 1952.
Frank Starling and "Max"
Braddy, opened the com-
munity's first supermarket,
Manor Market. Starling was
elected as the third mayor and
became the city's first city
administrator in 1960, a posi-
tion he filled until 1981. John
P. Pedersen arrived in Wilton
Manors from Wisconsin in the
early 1940s. He became one
of the largest land owners in
South Florida by purchasing
tax-delinquent property for
no more than $8 or $10 a lot.
James C. Dean, Jr. and Turner
were the primary developers
east of the FEC tracks. Dean

managed to get the Northeast
26 Street bridge built, con-
necting the east end of town
with Federal Highway.
Typical of the mid-century,
women were seen, but not
heard. There is evidence that
at least two of "the wives"
heavily subsidized their entre-
preneurial husbands. Louoma
"Lou" Leaver was acknowl-
edged by the Broward Sunday
Sun to be a primary influence
in town.
Wilton Manors is geo-
graphically concise, embraced
by the North and South Forks
of the Middle River, with a
population small enough to
make loud noises. This started
when residents organized
"The Big Meeting" in 1946 to
decide whether to incorporate
and avoid being annexed.
Early municipal buildings
were built by volunteer labor
and with money raised from
neighborhood barbeques.
"Civic involvement" is a two-
edged sword. Residents are
not, and never have been, shy
expressing their displeasure
with the city commission.
With the election of 1982,
all hell broke loose with the
"Old Guard" versus the "New
Guard." The March 1984
election created more chaos.
The bad blood between the

two factions even spilled over
into a battle over who would
be granted the beer conces-
sion at the city's 1984 Fourth
of July celebration.
The '90s saw numerous
efforts to improve Wilton
Drive, including the creation
of an Arts and Entertainment
District. The census had Wil-
ton Manors losing more than
1,000 residents and its eco-
nomic health was in question.
Do we allow more, denser de-
velopment, or not? Numerous
factions became "engaged,"
in the best traditions of Wilton
Perhaps the key event
which signaled the economic
turnaround was the arrival
of Georgie's Alibi in 1997, a

sports bar which caters to gay
clientele. Georgie's helped
rejuvenate Wilton Drive and
began to turn Wilton Manors
into an increasingly desirable
address. Most long-time resi-
dents welcomed the increased
business activity and the new
neighbors who were putting a
lot of time, effort and money
into their homes. The outside
world may be intrigued with
the curiosity of gay mayors
and gay majorities on the city
commission. Residents, gay
and straight, continue to be
much more interested in a
well-run city. Wilton Manors'
rich and interesting history
has been made more so by an
unending cadre of caring and
interested residents.

Deerfield I

Continued from page 1
This year marks the 85th
year Deerfield Beach has been
incorporated, but as early as
1898 there were settlers on
the banks of the Hillsboro
River and Henry Flagler
had brought the Florida East
Coast Railroad to Miami, the
single-most important boon to
development everywhere in
South Florida.
The second important proj-
ect contributing to the town's
growth was dredging the Hill-
sboro Canal in 1911 giving
Deerfield a waterway connec-
tion to Lake Okeechobee.
By then, farming was the
chief industry and pineapples
the major crop. But because
farming was its economic
mainstay, Deerfield's early
years were severely impacted
by various disasters, both
natural and manmade.
In those years, the business
district was at Dixie Highway
and Hillsboro Boulevard and
was comprised of five stores,
two hotels and a post office.
Reliance on farming meant
Deerfield's fortunes came
and went with the weather,
competition for the pineapple
market from Cuba and world
In 1898, a killer frost took
the pineapple crop and by
mid-century Cuban farmers
controlled the market. During
World War I, trains heading
north carried military sup-
plies, not winter vegetables
which had become a luxury.
Two back-to-back hurri-
canes in the '20s destroyed

crops and leveled the town.
The Depression added to the
economic woes of the 1,500
people living here.
It wasn't until WWII that
Deerfield Beach began to
The construction of the Air
Force base in Boca Raton
gave residents the opportunity
to provide necessary services.
In 1917, the beach became ac-
cessible with the construction
of a wooden, hand-cranked
bridge over the Intracoastal
In 1947, the town was
again damaged by a hurricane
and two blocks of beachfront
land was lost. It wasn't until
1960, that city fathers found
a way to control the erosion
problem. Groins rubble
mounds surrounded by a groin
and post system that captured

the sand were placed along
the shore. While the method
is controversial and would not
be allowed today, it is credited
with saving Deerfield's beach,
which is one of the best in
South Florida.
Hurricanes continue to cost
the town dearly. In 1962, the
fishing pier was destroyed. A
720-foot-long pier was rebuilt
for a cost of $128,000. It
became the centerpiece of the
beach and a draw for tourists.
In 1976, President Gerald
Ford became its most famous
Beginning in the '80s, Deer-
field continued to experience
significant business develop-
ment and population growth.
The opening of the Sawgrass
Expressway contributed to
both factors. As more people
were attracted to the city,

housing developments were
built west of Military Trail.
Business corridors developed
along SW 10 Street, Power-
line Road, Hillsboro Boule-
vard, Military Trail and US 1.
Within the last two decades,
the beach has undergone
major redevelopment. Condo-

northern Florida, Georgia
and the Carolinas, although a
number of blacks arrived here
from the Bahamas.
Pioneer settler George But-
ler was appointed postmaster
for the new settlement (sup-
posedly he ran the post office
from his home, out of a cigar
box), and when, in 1899, the
children in the area warranted
a schoolhouse, his wife Mary
was hired as the first teacher.
At first the school was located
near the Butler's homestead
near Lettuce Lake (now Lake
Santa Barbara), but by 1907
the school was relocated to
a new building closer to the
expanding community near
the railroad tracks.
In 1900 the first general
store was opened by M. Z.
Cavendish at NE First Street
and Flagler Avenue. Soon a
small commercial district par-
alleled the railroad tracks and
a forerunner of the Chamber
of Commerce, the Pompano
Board of Trade was estab-
Those who populated the
area were attracted by its rich
soil and mild temperatures.
One of the early cash crops
was pineapples. Competition
from Caribbean and Hawaiian
pineapple growers led most
farmers to switch to growing
tomatoes, which turned out
to be more profitable. Later,
farmers discovered that winter
vegetables were even more
One of the reasons that the
settlement was interested in
becoming an incorporated
town is that it could then pass
ordinances and laws regu-
lating sanitation and public
safety and practices such as
gambling, public intoxication
and panhandling. Following
Pompano's incorporation,
John R. Mizell was elected to
be its first mayor.
In 1908, when Pompano
was incorporated, it was
within Dade County. The
following year Palm Beach
County was created with its
southern boundary being ap-
proximately at the Cypress
Creek Canal. In 1915, Bro-
ward County was established
with a northern boundary at
the Hillsboro Canal. Within
eight years, Pompano had
been in three counties.
Following World War I,
Florida's economy and popu-
lation grew rapidly. This was
the era of the Florida Land
Boom and although Pompano
was not affected to the extent
that Fort Lauderdale or Miami
was, it was not left out. New
developments were platted on
the beach and west of town,
many of which were never
built. One boom-time devel-

opment that seemed to hold
great promise was a race track
just southwest of town. It cost
more than a million dollars.
The grandstand could hold
over 6,000 people (more than
the population of Pompano)
and there were stables for
more than a thousand horses.
After only a few days of rac-
ing, Florida deemed it illegal
gambling and closed it down.
It was not until the 1950s that
horse racing was revived at
the track.
As the boom turned into the
Great Depression, Pompano
received a boost from a local
resident who had arrived in
1923. William L. Kester had
originally come to this area
for the fishing, but he stayed
and became a major force
in the economic and social
development of Pompano.
Perhaps Kester's most last-
ing fame came from the rental
houses he had constructed
during the 1930s on the beach.
These wood-frame structures,
which Kester would later
describe as "pepper crates,"
provided employment for the
local workers who built them,
and a means to attract tourists
to the area.
Kester also helped form the
town's first Chamber of Com-
merce, opening the Farmers
Bank of Pompano, as well as
his charitable gifts, includ-
ing land for a public library
and for a park that would be
named in his honor. Much of
today's public beach was sold
to Pompano by Kester at a
discounted price.
Throughout the Depression
agriculture remained the eco-
nomic mainstay of the com-
munity. Downtown Pompano
came alive as farmers, bro-
kers, railway agents and local
residents congregated to make
sure the crops got to mar-
ket. In 1939, a new farmers
market was opened just west
of town along the Seaboard
Airline Railroad tracks. When
it opened, the Pompano State
Farmers Market boasted a
loading platform over 1,000
feet long supposedly the
longest in the world.
During World War II, land
northeast of town was ac-
quired by the Federal govern-
ment for an airfield that would
support the big Naval Air
Station in Fort Lauderdale.
On the beach, blackouts were
ordered and Coast Guardsmen
patrolled the shoreline. Many
residents were enlisted as
Pompano sent its youth off
to war, and mourned the six
servicemen who lost their
lives in the conflict.
With the return of peace,
South Florida entered another
population explosion. In 1947
the City of Pompano merged
with the newly-formed mu-
nicipality on the beach and

became the City of Pompano
Beach. Subsequently other
areas surrounding the city
were annexed, although a few
sought-after areas, such as
Lighthouse Point and Coconut
Creek, incorporated rather
than join Pompano Beach.
In post-war economic
growth led to the organization
of the Pompano Beach Cham-
ber of Commerce in 1948. At
first the Chamber was located
in a borrowed wood-frame
building located at Atlan-
tic Boulevard and NE 20th
Avenue, but by mid-1949 the
organization had dedicated its
current headquarters at 2200
East Atlantic Boulevard.
As South Florida filled up

with people, agricultural lands
were turned into housing de-
velopments and golf courses.
Although farming remained
an important component of
Pompano Beach's economy
well into the 1960s, tourism,
light industry and boating
were becoming equally sig-
Motels replaced the small
cottages and vacant lands on
the beach, and west of town
new firms such as the Chris
Craft Boat Corporation diver-
sified employment opportuni-
ties. In 1971, the Pompano
Fashion Square opened as a
state-of-the-art retail indoor
shopping mall.
The spectacular growth of

the 1950s and 1960s came
back to haunt Pompano Beach
in the waning years of the
twentieth century. It was be-
coming obvious to civic and
business leaders that Pompano
Beach needed a major revital-
ization effort.
Community Redevelopment
Agencies were established
for the East Atlantic/Beach
corridor, as well as for the old
downtown and Hammond-
ville/Martin Luther King cor-
ridor. These are still works in
progress, but with other public
and private developments,
they hold the promise of a
new Pompano Beach. Article

Casa Maya Grill, a friendly spot for authentic Mexican cuisine

By Malcolm McClintock
W ith Cinco de
Mayo fast ap-
proaching, it is a
timely reminder that there is
nothing more pleasing to the
palette that finely prepared
authentic Mexican fare.
Bursting with a myriad
zesty flavors, the traditional
cuisine of our Southern neigh-
bor is an art form thousands
of years in the making.
"We use only the freshest
ingredients to prepare the
many dishes that have their
roots in ancient Mayan culture
as well as the influence of
the Spanish Conquistadors,"
says Casa Maya Grill owner
Emilio Dominguez.
"Our menu reflects the great
variety and history of tradi-
tional Mexican food, especial-
ly with respect to specialties
from the Yucatan Peninsula,
where I was born and raised.
I watched my grandmother
prepare fantastic dishes daily
for fourteen grandchildren.
She did miracles with very
little money. It was a big
inspiration for me," adds
Appetizers such as the
outstanding Mahi-Mahi
Ceviche cooked in lime juice,
the hearty black bean soup

with roasted tomatoes or the
mussels in tequila-lime sauce
with basil are sure to instantly
titillate the taste buds.
"We have no microwave,
freezer or canned products.
Everything is made in house
daily. For example, we make a
new batch of guacamole about
four times a day so that it is
always fresh," says Domin-
guez, who is a stickler for
Having worked in the
restaurant business in South
Florida for the past 20 years,
the friendly proprietor of
this newly establishment has
created a beautiful oasis of
culinary delights in the heart
of Deerfield Beach.
"The people of Deerfield
have been so welcoming and
receptive. They have a great
appreciation for good quality
Mexican food. I am so happy
to be a part of this wonderful
community," says Dominguez
as he brings a plate full of
Codzitos to the table.
These hand rolled crispy
tortillas are stuffed with
chicken or steak and smoth-
ered with an eye-opening
chipotle sauce. Vegetarians
will appreciate the Poblano
pepper stuffed version as well.
Another great choice is the
Panucho a special handmade
corn tortilla with black bean

spread, topped with shredded
Pibil chicken, red pickled on-
ions and avocado. Of course,
the traditional cheese-laden
soft flour tortillas stuffed
with chicken, beef, shrimp or
Achiote-marinated pork are
also highly recommended.
"I learned that to cook well
means to cook with passion
and a lot of love. I believe
that really comes across in our
food," says Dominguez.
The strength of Casa Maya's
menu lies in its incorporation
of a multitude of indigenous
herbs and spices. Be it in the

vastness of Mexico's cultural
Nothing exemplifies this
more aptly than Casa Maya's
signature sauce called Mole
Poblano Rojo. Often recog-
nized for its chocolate com-
ponent, this mole is a unique
and complex blend of 78
spices and condiments that is
regarded as one of the most
savory sauces in the world.
Any dish Poc Chuc style
will entail sour orange

pickled onions, black beans,
onions and cilantro.
A plate of burritos with
Pipian sauce will feature a

Other traditional crowd
pleasers are the sizzling
fajita platters. Steak, chicken,

merrily with smoky onions,
peppers and tomatoes on a
piping hot skillet.

great option is the Pescado

offering of children's meals.
These smaller dishes were
specially selected by Sarah,
the owner's nine-year-old
daughter who, along with
her mom, Coral, have helped

place for families.

attention to detail, continued
success is in the offing.

Platinum Paint, 1111 NW 51 St., Fort Lauderdale 954-727-2006

Platinum Paint in Fort Lauderdale employs the latest techniques

to make their customers forget their cars ever had a scratch

Carlos and Theresa
Orduna have been
working on cars
their entire lives. "I was a
mechanic, and my husband
was a body man," said
Theresa. The couple run
Platinum Paint and Body,
opened in 2004, repairing
dings, dents, scratches, en-
gine trouble and everything
in between.
"I started working for my
dad when I was a teenager,
I'd say about 15. I learned
everything I know from
him. He taught me how to
work on a car and the busi-
ness side of things. I had
to learn every part," said
Theresa. "I was working on
my own cars when I was 16
or 17."
She says her years work-
ing for her father were like
prepping for a test and
learning something new
about cars everyday. She
got her first automotive-
related job, as a Goodyear
tire and service advisor, at
21-years-old. "At age 21

Carlos started working
with his dad at about the
same time, 16-years-old,
painting cars. Later, he
started working on restor-

Platinum, a AAA ap-

also offers custom painting
and color matching. "We
make cars look better than
they did before the acci-

But bad luck and care-

things Platinum's staff sets
right. They also undo the
ravages of Father Time.
Using the reproduction and
original parts, "our experts
also restore vehicles dam-
aged by time. From clas-
sic cars to street rods, we
return rusted, damaged and
non-working vehicles to
their original glory," said

Both Theresa and Car-
los focused solely on the
body side of the business
after Hurricane Wilma hit
in 2005 because there was
so much body work to be
done with cars damaged by
the storm. But now they're
back to being a full service
Theresa says she enjoys
the customer part of the
business best. She says
customers get very nervous

Weekly Fishing Report: Big swordfishing afoot

RJ Boyle
The crew of the Datsnasty
and I had another epic week-
We caught two swordfish on
Aug. 21, a 125-pounder and
225-pounder. We had a total
of three bites Saturday and
were able to cash in on those
Sunday proved to be a dif-
ferent story. Not one boat in
the fleet actually got a bite till
just after noon.
The 1.-, i Chaser, Sea Tech
ty all
up at the
sword RJ Boyle
fishing, is not uncommon.
The pressure actually made a
change, and the fish turned on
for a short period of time.
Sea Tech boated a 350-
pound sword and the Datsnas-
ty boated a 400-pound sword
shortly thereafter. The big
sword jumped eight times and
sure was a sight to see. It still
amazes me how a fish that big
can jump 15 feet out of the
water that many times. What
an awesome day.
Over the last three days the
wahoos have been chewing.
Numerous fish in the 30 to

40-pound range have been
caught between 140 and 180
feet of water trolling.
Most of the fish have been
caught on double-hooked
bonito strips trolled at around
eight knots on the planer rig.
An 82-pounder was caught on
a goggle eye on Thursday in
250 feet of water.
As we near the weekend,
break out the trolling gear and
stay near shore. Dolphin have
been few and far between and

John Knox Village I

43 Years Of Life-Care And

In 1967, Dr. Mack R. Douglas, a Baptist minister in
Margate, gathered a few friends and proposed to develop a
retirement home for senior citizens. The plan that evolved
called for the construction of a group of cottages, each con-
taining three apartments, to be leased to a senior person or
couple for the balance of his/her/their life. That community
was named "Baptist Village" and opened in Pompano Beach.
Early press clippings from the Miami Herald stated that
Baptist Village (the original name for John Knox Village) began
with nine residences. Shortly after, another 72 garden villas were
built followed by completion of 90 apartments in East Lake.
The early years of Baptist Village were quite successful.
At the time, there were very few continuing care communities
in the country, and many seniors had tired of caring for their
own homes and wished to have the security of life-care.
The excitement of success led to rapid expansion.

1978 ad announcing the name change.

After a period of financial restructuring and management
change, the community was renamed John Knox Village and
was officially incorporated on February 6, 1978 under the
leadership of Dr. Kenneth P. Berg and the oversight of a
Board of Directors.
In 1980, expansion included 60 additional beds in the
Health Center, rooms for Assisted Living, and space for
therapy treatments. Village Towers was completed featuring
another 200 independent living residences and the Village
continued to grow through careful and controlled planning.
In 1992, a new Assisted Living facility opened, and the
Health Center was rededicated with 57 additional beds, dining
and activities space, and nursing stations on the 2nd floor of
the west wing. The Lakeside Dining Room, the Village Audi-
torium and additional facilities were added to the community.

Almost completed, East Lake will be ready for

Preparing forN(tV Future!

Lakeside Villas & Village Towers today.

The most recent major addition to the Village, Heritage
Tower was completed in October 2004. The ten-story Tower
features a total of 120 apartments designed with the most
up-to-date features.
Early last month John Knox Village dedicated Furman
Square in honor of local businessman Frank H. Furman Jr.
Mr. Furman joined the original Board of Directors in 1979
and served as its president from 1985 until his recent retire-
ment from the Board after 31 years of service. The Furman
Square fountain, clock tower and landscaped seating area will
serve as a focal point for the Village for decades to come.
Presently home to approximately 1000 residents with a staff
of more than 600 employees, the 64-acre Village campus of
peaceful lakes and tropical landscaping offers a continuing
care retirement environment for those aged 62 and greater.

From carefree independence, through assisted living, even
on-site nursing care in the Village Health Center, John Knox
Village has been the life-care home for thousands of residents
since its opening.
The Village has been an integral part of the fabric of
Pompano Beach for the past 43 years. In fact, most anyone
who has lived in Pompano Beach probably knows someone
who either lives or works at John Knox.

Sample-McDougald House, 450 NE 10 St., Pompano Beach 954-292-8040

Sample-McDougald House: still standing after 94 years

One of South Flori-
da's most distinc-
tive historic struc-
tures, the Sample-McDougald
House dates back to this
area's pioneer days.
It was built in 1916 by Al-
bert Neal Sample, a Pompano
farmer whose family came
south from the Carolinas.
The house was originally
located north of Pompano on
Dixie Highway, in the midst
of Sample's pineapple fields.
Unlike many of the homes
built in Broward County
during that period, Sample's
house was big (approximately
4,500 square feet) and exhibit-
ed a distinct architectural style
(Colonial Revival). It was
said the house was patterned
after a family home in South
In 1943, the house was
purchased by William D. Mc-
Dougald, a Deerfield Beach
farmer and lawman. Mem-
bers of the McDougald family
would live in the house for
nearly six decades. During
that period they preserved the
house's original architectural
In 1984, the house was
awarded National Register
of Historic Places status, the
first residential site in north-
ern Broward County to be so
At that time, however,
increased urbanization was
leading to changes that
were destroying the histori-
cal character of the site and
efforts were made to find a
new location for the landmark
In 1999 several local resi-
dents formed the Sample-Mc-
Dougald House Preservation
Society and solicited sup-
port to move the house into
Pompano Beach. The house
was donated by the McDou-
gald family to the non-profit
organization and on May 30,
2001 the structure made the
journey down Dixie Highway
to its new location.
The Sample-McDougald
House Preservation Society
has undertaken a multi-mil-
lion dollar restoration and
landscaping effort. Thanks
to the support of individuals,
businesses and local govern-
ments, this community project
has been successful in pre-
serving the historic Sample-
McDougald House.
In 2008, the City of Pom-
pano Beach designated the
Sample-McDougald House
grounds as Centennial Park,
in recognition of the munic-
ipality's 100th anniversary
of incorporation. Work has
begun on the development of
the park and its landscaping.

Recently, Linda Chastain visited the
Sample-McDougald House. She is
the great-grandneice of Albert Neal
Sample. Her grandfather was his
brother. She is a lifelong resident of
Fort Pierce, where many members
of the Sample family live. Pictured:
Claudia DuBois, Margaret White,
Linda Chastain, Debbi Beach and

This phase of the project
is being funded through a
$250,000 Broward County
Safe Parks and Land Preser-
vation Local grant that was
facilitated by Broward County
Commissioner Kristin Jacobs
and over $800,000 of in-
kind contributions from local
construction and landscaping
Site work is scheduled to
be completed by the end of
this year and the house and
grounds open to the public in
early 2011.

full of warmth and character
with more than a sprinkling of
local color.

Clinical Nutrition & Chiropractic, 824 SE 9 St., Deerfield Beach 954-570-8022 www.deerfieldwellness.com

Dr. Bill Longstreth of Deerfield Beach uses nutrition, lifestyle

changes and traditional therapies to treat patients

His wife teases him
that he still calls it
"the practice."
After 34 years, Dr. Bill
Longstreth still enjoys the
challenge. In the seventies, his
treatment was based on reliev-
ing spinal pain using manipu-
lation and physical therapy.
Treatment of acute back and
neck pain was a relatively
simple process.
However, he soon learned
that chronic problems re-
quired diet and lifestyle
changes to sustain long term
improvement. \ly interest
in nutrition was born out of
necessity, and I've been a
student of nutrition for over
30 years," he says. Today, his
practice fully integrates diet,
nutrition, lifestyle and ma-
"I still treat spinal problems,
but most of my new patients
are seeking help for diabetes,
irritable bowel syndrome,
metabolic syndrome, and
other constitutional illnesses."
To help treat those and other
conditions, Dr. Longstreth
prescribes a number of herbal
treatments. "I'm very fond of
the Indian herb, gymnema, It
is very effective at reversing
diabetes," said Dr. Longstreth.
"Another one I like is tribulus.
That's good for [reversing]

chaste tree to help with
insomnia and peri and post-
menopausal conditions.
Ongoing education is the
key. "The more you know,
the more difficult cases you
attract, and then the more you
need to know."
In 2009, after years of study
at the University of Miami,
Miller School of Medicine,
Dr. Longstreth was awarded
a diplomat in nutrition. This
year, he is continuing classes
through the University of Mi-
ami in Quintessential Applica-
tions. "It's the first technique
that truly integrates nutrition,

A native of Michigan, Dr.
Longstreth moved to Pom-
pano Beach where he attended
Pompano Beach High School.
"It was the summer prior to
my senior year and I wasn't
happy about the move." Still,
after three years at USF in
Tampa and four years of
Chiropractic College, he de-
cided to return here to start his
practice. "Those four winters
in Iowa were enough to really
make me appreciate South
Florida." Now, forty years
later, it's a source of great
pride that his son will be at-
tending Pompano Beach High

School, his Alma Mater.
Health is a journey
Health is a journey, not
a destination. It is the state
of homeostasis in the body.
When all organ systems are
working close to optimal
levels and the communica-
tion channels between these
systems is fully integrated.
In most cases, the symptoms
you currently suffer are the re-
sult of a decline from optimal
health. Diabetes begins with
eating too much. This is a real
problem for most Americans.
In addition, we consume too
many refined carbohydrates.
Over the course of 20 or 30
years, the pancreas produces

excessive amounts of insulin
to handle all this sugar. The
cells of the body in turn be-
come insulin resistant. At this
point, your only symptoms
may be some occasional fa-
tigue and a few extra pounds
slowly building around the
waist. The adrenal glands be-
gin to produce more cortisol
reducing production of all the
other sex hormones and libido
Liver function declines and
we begin to experience symp-
toms of toxicity headaches,
abdominal pain and bloat-
ing, etc. Eventually we seek
medical help but it is not until
the pancreas is exhausted and
insulin production fails, that
the diagnosis of diabetes is
given and treatment is insti-
tuted. Even then it is not to
late to turn back the clock and
restore homeostatis. However,
we must now regenerate the
pancreas, the liver, the adre-
nals and probably the thyroid
as well. It takes some time
but treating these systems
sequentially brings improved
health with every step. It is
possible to balance glucose
metabolism and get a patient
off insulin injections. It is
simply much easier to prevent
diabetes in the first place by
restoring organs before the
disease is fully apparent.

there are ups and
downs to working for

weighs the bad.
"When you' re working for
someone else, you are limited
in decision-making. When you
work for yourself, you make
your own decisions, and every

Molfese, who came to the
U.S. from Italy with his fam-
ily when he was 16, owns
and operates Carpet Service
International, Inc., located in
Deerfield Beach and Addison,
Carpet Service Interna-
tional offers vinyl, wood and
laminate flooring along with
carpeting and ceramic tile and
installation and maintenance.
For potential customers still
thinking about a update for the
interior of their home or busi-
ness, Carpet Service's website
- www.csicarpet.com has a
floor area calculator that helps
determine the cost of installing
a new flooring or carpeting.
And customers can choose
among brands that include
Stainmaster, Durkan Com-
mercial, Mohawk Commercial
Carpet, Shaw, Cumberland

Carpets, Blueridge Custom
Weave, Cabin Crafts, Horizon
by Mohawk, Bigelow and
Gulistan Carpet.
Perhaps as a nod to their
homeland, the brothers also
sell restored Vespa scooters.
They also sell pre-cast con-
crete backyard barbecue grills
and pizza ovens. All imported
from Italy.
Victor and his brother, Car-
mine, founded the company
in 1980, two years after they
started in the industry. "We
actually started doing installa-
tion for other companies, and
we decided to go on our own."
They began with residential
customers and soon took jobs
dealing with healthcare facili-
ties, hotels, office buildings
and other commercial custom-
"We also did some work
overseas [Germany, Italy and
South Korea] for the Depart-
ment of Defense," said Victor.
As the business started
growing the brothers started
hiring employees, mostly
family members at first. The
family business includes their
two other brothers, a cousin
and Carmine's two sons. "And
then we ran out of family
members," joked Molfese.

For those wanting an update to their home or business, Carpet Service International offers brands that include Stainmaster,
Durkan Commercial, Mohawk Commercial Carpet, Shaw, Cumberland Carpets, Blueridge Custom Weave, Cabin Crafts,
Horizon by Mohawk, Bigelow and Gulistan Carpet.

Now the number of employ-
ees, related and other, stands
at 26. Victor's daughter also
worked for with the company
but is now a chef at the Boca
Raton Resort. As for working
with his brother, "Mostly it's
been good. We get to see each
other on a regular basis, and
this keeps us in close family."
Victor says he likes work-
ing with family because, if he
does have a disagreement, at
the end of the day "You can
relate to them ... and you can

still share a meal together."
Like most immigrants,
Victor's life in a new country
took some getting used to.
"I was rough without know-
ing the language. It took me a
couple years." Serving in the
U.S. Army helped. "I always
wanted to learn the language
more and more. So I read a
lot, sometimes not even know-
ing what I was reading." And
so did some relatives, who
were already here when Vic-
tor and his family made their

journey. "They kind of took
us under their wing. The only
friends we had were family
Ultimately, Victor and
Carmine ended up on their
business path because of those
same family members. "They
got us into some hotel work."
A career in flooring and car-
peting wasn't something the
brothers sought. "Jobs were
scarce. We came across it, we
like what we were doing and
stuck to it," Victor said.

Owner Bernard Perron brings his French background and training and

his love for sweets to Brooks Restaurant in Deerfield Beach

At Brooks Restaurant
in Deerfield Beach,
planning the menu
is a family affair.
"It's a group effort. If
we see something we like
somewhere we get together
and discuss it," said owner
Bernard Perron, who runs the
restaurant with his daughter,
Lisa Howe, and her husband,
Jon, who is the restaurant's
executive chef.
Bernard's son, Marc, is one
of the chef's at the family's
other restaurant, Ben Venuto,
in Boyton Beach.
"We try it on our customers
and if it works we put it on
the menu. We'll offer it as a
special for a while. After that
it becomes permanent," said
Bernard, who is originally
from France.
Lisa says they try different
restaurants in New York City,
Chicago and San Francisco to
get different ideas and try out
their new ideas on neighbors
and friends.
"We get together and kind
of have like a little bouncing
back and forth session. We
kind of just go through things
and it works out really well,"
said Lisa, adding that her

neighbors are "kind of like
guinea pigs" when it comes
to trying something new from
the restaurant.

chef. A profession he fell in
love with at an early age.

Coral Cadillac, 5101 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach 954-426-1800

A few entrepreneurs saw the debut of the year-round professionals in

South Florida who would want something with luxury for the road

Coral Cadillac was
founded in the au-
tumn of 1973 by its
former President, Norman E.
The franchise was granted
by the Cadillac Motor Car
Division of General Motors for
the Pompano Beach/Deerfield
Beach area to be a full sales
and service outlet exclusively
for Cadillac automobiles.
A building site was lo-
cated and acquired, and a
well thought-out facility was
painstakingly constructed
and equipped. Coral Cadillac
opened its doors to the public
for the first time on Feb. 3,
Since that day, the facili-
ties and properties held by the
Dealership have expanded
and been modified on several
occasions to keep abreast of
the dynamic changes of our
trading area. Our equipment
and operations/support service-
from the office to the shops
to the parts department -have
been continually updated and
supplemented to assure our
customers and employees that
the best and most sophisticated
facilities are available. The
workforce has grown from 40
employees on opening day to
our current number of approxi-

mately 120 fulltime employ-
In 1995, Coral Cadillac was
granted another franchise by
a military manufacturer, AM
General. The military ver-
sion of today's Hummer was
known as a Hum-vee and had
gained popularity in the U.S.
market after Desert Storm,
This low volume franchise
exploded in the summer of
2002. General Motors pur-
chased the Hummer brand
from AM General and formed
a new G \ I division which
developed and launched the
all new H2.
Cadillac is once again a
leader in quality, design and
style which has made Cadillac
an icon of luxury. With this
and the very popular Hummer
lines, we recognized the need
for major expansion in our
facilities to ensure our success
in the future. Coral Cadil-
lac-Hummer once again must
reinvest in its facilities, It was
necessary to construct new
state of the art Hummer sales
and parking facilities to ac-
commodate our future growth.
Today Coral Cadillac, under
its current owner, Christian
Berian, is among the most suc-
cessful dealerships of its kind
in the United States. We con-

Luxurious Cadillacs came to
the residents of North Bro-
ward County mostly through
the vision of investors and
principals of the Wiese
Management Company
in 1975. These men could
not envision that one day a
design based on a U.S. Army
vehicle, the Hum-vee, would
raise the bar of luxury.
Today, the Cadillac and
Hummers are two of the
most sought after vehicles
for luxury and safety. Both
are always available at
Coral Cadillac in Pompano/
Deerfield Beach. And by
the number of the vehicles
tooling throughout the area,
Cadillac and Hummer fans
know exactly where to go
-Coral Cadillac.

tinue to be the leaders in the
top tier markets. We believe
the principal ingredient of this
success is the quality of our
people and their commitment
to exceed our customers' ex-
pectations in quality of service.
The excellence of their work
and their professional attitudes
are what sets Coral Cadillac-
Hummer apart from the rest
and motivates our customers to
come back again and again.

Bailey Woodruff Title Company, Inc., 665 SE 10 St., Deerfield Beach 954-571-7919

Founding Bailey Woodruff Title Company, "a once upon a time" story

Mary Stefl has seen
a lot of the world.
From her early
days in England and the rest
of Europe to her travels across
the Atlantic to Canada and
finally to settling down with
her husband, Roger, 19 years
ago in South Florida, she has
seen a lot.
But would anyone imagine
Mary settled? Not those who
know her. Her c IiKi I'\ and
intelligence continue to drive
her to new heights.
That's what happened
in February 2009, when a
group of young persons at
First American Title who had
worked together for years
decided to break out on their
own and forge the birth of
Bailey Woodruff Title Com-
pany in Deerfield Beach.
Mary calls that event her
"Once upon a time .. story.
"We knew we were good
at what we did," says Mary.
"We were very good, and we
wanted to be the best that the
community would ever see."
And this entrepreneur was
right on target.
Offering her colleagues
the same salaries they had

whom she believed could put
together a title company that

and efficiency.

She explains why choos-
ing a good title company is
critical. "We are the ones who
take care of the closing so
there will be no problems,"
Mary says.
"Good old fashioned ser-
vice, care and consideration

for the client are what this
new company stands for. We
believe in talking with people,
listening to what their custom-
ers have to say and even hold-
ing hands, when necessary.
We make sure all of closing
documents are in place and on
And she gives credit for
meeting those goals to her
staff. "Short Sales are all the

rage, and buyers and sellers
have a wonderful negotia-

Century Village was, is and
always will be an enormously
influential force in the neigh-
borhood, and Jay Yeskel and
Lorna Tritt are the undisputed
King and Queen of "The Vil-
lage" closings," Mary says.

"A little international flavor is
brought with Sarah J. Parker
from Australia and Mary
from Europe. Amy Wahl and
Stephanie Sylvester are part
of the All-American contin-
gent," Mary adds.
Bailey Woodruff may be a
fledgling company, but Mary
is very proud of being named
one of the "top five closing
offices in Broward County,"
according to Data Trace.
And in spite of the hous-
ing market, Mary encourages
everyone to hang onto the
American dream of home
"Yes, ladies and gentle-
men, it is still possible to get a
mortgage, buy a home or refi-
nance an existing homestead,"
she says. "Bailey Woodruff

Endicott Nissan, 1345 S. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach 954-781-7700

Endicott Nissan, with 52 years of selling cars in South Florida, has

earned the respect of generations of car buyers who 'come here first'

A family legacy of
auto dealerships
A as made Endicott
Nissan one of the most
respected names in South
Florida's retail car business.
Opening 52 years ago
at its present location on
South Federal Highway in
Pompano Beach with Tom
Endicott at the helm, the
business has thrived.
Buick was its first prod-
uct, a line Tom brought
with him from Southern
Illinois where he first went
into business. Coming
south in 1957, he bought
a Buick Rambler dealer-
ship in Delray Beach. In
1961, he bought a Pompano
Beach dealership. From
then until 2006 when he
sold the franchise, Buick
sales at Endicott were
strong enough to rank them
among the top 10 dealer-
ships in the nation.
Following in his father's
footsteps, John Endicott
came into the business in
1975 after graduating from
In 1977, he became gen-

eral manager of the com-
pany. In 1980, the company
took on the Isuzu line and
continued its record of
success. In 1994 it sold the
more Isuzus than any dealer
in the U.S.
Now the product is Nis-
san, a line taken on in 1998,

Designed for neighbor-
hood driving, the brightly
-colored cars hold as many
as six passengers, or two if
outfitted with a back flat-
bed. The GEMs can usually
be seen in local parades.
At one point, the dealer-
ship employed 125 people.
The Nissan works for
the consumer because of
its value for the money,

The company is emerging

Creative inventions for fishermen by Innovative Fishing Tackle
By Tom Greene (Design & Sales) & Rick Herrick (Design & Manufacturing)



Engineering: The tool body is made from aircraft quality 6061 billet (block) aluminum. Internal
hardware is made of a durable corrosion-resistant 303 stainless steel for salt and fresh water use.

Design: The unique patented design of the cutter-head provides a reducing-triangle cutting action
which prevents braided lines, mono, and stranded cable from fraying. This keeps the line and cable
intact and allows an easy and sure fit into a cable crimp. It does not leave any strands sticking out to
cause injury to your hands.
Our Tri-Shear: design allows you to quickly release a fish by sliding the cutting barrel down the
line to the cutting tip without having to handle the line. The Tri-Shear is not meant for cutting hooks.

Tri-Shear now available in two sizes, includes lanyard and leather holster direct from Custom Rod and Reel

Large (5-0 in) for $79.95 (Reg $99.95)
Small (4 1/2 in) for $69.95 (Reg $89.95)
Plus shipping $7.00 (if you want to send it)

will get it to them no mat-
ter where they are. "We ship
fishing tackle and merchandise
worldwide everyday," said
Greene. One of Custom Rod &
Reel's newest offerings is the
Tri-Shear. "The Tri-Shear was
designed and built because
nobody has ever come up with
a tool that can cut Kevlar and
Spectar lines as well as that
does. I use it everyday," said
Greene, who added that it' s
not just for fisherman.
"I got a guy who uses it to
hang sealing tile. There are
lot of different applications."
Greene says he' 11 be selling a
smaller, pocket-sized version
of the Tri-Shear soon. "The fly
fisherman will fall in love with
it and the small boat guys will
love it too."
Like all businessmen,
Greene likes making money.
But he also likes saving his
customers money.
The Reel Crankie is one way
he does it. Instead of spend-
ing thousands on a traditional
electric reel, anglers can dish
out about $150 for the device.
Reel Crankies hook up to a
household battery powered
drill to help bring in a weight
plus bait by snapping on to the
side of the reel widely used for
fishing for swordfish or test
filling reels. A lot of sizes are
available for different models.
"I also collect antique
fishing tackle, and I do free
appraisals for people who have
grandpa's old fishing box and
rods and reels."
And he's looking to put that
passion for fishing into a book,
due out soon, about the part
of his life spent with rod and
reel in hand. "It's just fishing
stories. Stuff I've seen in the
last 50 years."

Umberto's of Long Island, 2780 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach 954-784-7110 www.umbertosfl.com

Joseph Corteo has traveled far, personally and professionally to bring

Umberto's of Long Island to Pompano Beach and South Florida

SPepsi and a slice, 25
cents." When Joseph
Corteo came to Brook-
lyn in 1962 from his home-
town of Monte di Procida,
Italy, that was all the English
he knew.
"I came the same reason
that everybody comes. When
you can't get anywhere in
your country, you come here
to America."
Luckily Joseph, 16 at the
time, now 64, and his older
brother, Umberto, 19, didn't
have to wait long to start
working on their version of
the American dream.
"After two days in America
I was w oikii' ." said Joseph,
who painted houses in the
summer. But being underage,
and with the job of painting
houses ending in winter time,
Joseph turned to Umberto. "I
asked my brother, 'Find me
something else.'"
A simple request that turned
into the family business.
Umberto, already working
in a pizza restaurant, got his
brother a job selling slices
through a window to custom-
ers passing by.
"That's where it all started."
Since then, Joseph has been

all about pizza. "It's no harder
than any other business," said
Joseph spent the next 10
years in New Hyde Park.
Long Island, NY with his
brother, opening their own
place, Umberto's Pizzeria in
1965, "Which is still there by
the way," before taking him-
self and the family business
into new territory.
A trip to South Florida con-
vinced Joseph to say arrive-
derci to New York's winters
for the more mild embrace of
South Florida.
"When I came to Florida
and for a vacation in January
it was beautiful. I said, "This
is for me." In 1973 I packed
my car and drove down."
Since coming to Florida,
Joseph has moved around,
opening and selling various
pizza places in Pembroke
Pines, Hallandale, Plantation
and Fort Lauderdale before
finally settling down in Pom-
pano Beach, where Umberto's
of Long Island now stands.
L\ cly five or six years I
made a move," said Joseph,
who jokingly added, "Next
place I'm moving to is a lot in
a cemetery."

After almost 50 years in the
pizza business, Joseph says he
really didn't have a choice.
"That was the best thing for
us to do. We just fell right in
it." But he also has no regrets.

"I happen to love it. It's
crazy, but it's ic\\. i dinll." said
Joseph. "I came with nothing,
now my kids are in college
and my seven-year-old son's
college is almost paid for. I

did well and I'm still sane."

classes at night study-

complete one of his goals
which was to become a
licensed insurance agent.

I passed the test and went

In Brazil, Jair had an
established agency with
AIG. But when the fam-
ily arrived in Boston, Jair
decided to take a respite
from insurance.
That changed in 1992
when they moved again,
this time to South Flor-
ida, where Jair opened
Ancora Insurance Agen-
cy in Deerfield Beach in
1995. "I worked all my
life in the insurance busi-
ness in Brazil, and it was
my dream to do it here in
the States.
His dream accom-
plished, Jair retired in
2002, leaving his wife
Janildes Costa, and Fe-
lipe to carry on.
The next big change
for Ancora came when
Felipe bought a building
for the company. "A big
step," he says.
Now at the helm of the
business, Felipe adds
that insurance is more
than just something he
followed his father into.
"I like helping people
out and choosing the
right coverage for them.
I think it's cool and it
seems like I'm helping."
As independent agents,
Ancora offers different

Returning the American dream to whom it belongs...

That is what Solid Rock is all about!

n 2003, Christina
Henley founded Solid
Rock Realty out of her
strong desire to make positive
changes in the industry, for
consumers as well as agents.
The concept of Solid Rock
Realty is to create a paradigm
shift in the way consumers are
served by maintaining only
the most highly educated and
trained agents, eliminating all
the "real estate secrets" and
empowering the client to be
part of the entire real estate
process of selling, buying, or
Who helped her?
It would be impossible to
point out all the individuals
who helped Christina launch
Solid Rock Realty.
However, her dearest friend
Kate Major was certainly the
lead person in helping Chris-
tina take her vision and ideas
and putting them on paper to
create a business model that is
currently being realized today.
Another dear friend, Chari
Miles was very instrumental
in opening in the new location
in 2008 and revamping the
business model to better serve
today's consumer.
Asked about some of the
great moments of starting
and operating a company,

At Gateway, clients enter through this lobby on the second floor.

Christina says, "First, let me
say that we look forward to
many more to come. To date,
some of our greatest moments
have come from the day-to-
day interactions we have see-
ing people meet and exceed
their expectations for the
buying and selling process.
Additionally, many great mo-
ments have happened during
or after our monthly educa-
tion event series "Save the
American Dream." So many
have given feedback about
how they are more at ease
that their future real estate re-
lated decisions will be better
informed decisions because
of what they have learned.

Wine and Light hors d'eourves
are served. The seminars are
free and open to the public.
There are never solicitations at
the seminars.
What is the service? A
knowledge and information
source of all things real estate
for the purpose of buying, sell-
ing or investing in the greater
Ft. Lauderdale area.
Has this business contrib-
uted to the community in
some way? We offer a real
estate business that consis-
tently delivers concierge
style customer service while
empowering each and every
client to make the best pos-
sible decision regarding some

their life. They want
to be an integral part of the
process discussing strat-
egy and to know it will be
implemented effectively.
To meet today' s consum-
ers' desires and demands for
a more knowledgeable and
experienced consultant who
is fully aware of the chal-
lenges of the ever changing
real estate market, Solid Rock
Realty's "professional real
estate consultants" commit to
rigorous training and coach-
ing weekly, sometimes daily.
Also, today's consumer wants

transparency. In an attempt
meet this need, we invite our
clients to come to our office
and see everything exactly as
we see it, thereby eliminating
the mystery.
How has the service
changed or expanded? The
real estate climate is always
changing. As an example we
are seeing more families in
distress because of the in-
creasing number of delinquent
and underwater mortgages. In
an attempt to help those fami-
lies, our agents have earned
the Certified Distressed Prop-
erty Expert designation. This
gives a working knowledge of
the entire situation and all op-
tions available to homeowners
today. We come beside them
to walk them through the pro-
cess by providing the infor-
ma- tion and help they need to
make wiser decisions and get
on the road to recovery.

Dr. Philip A. Pine, 1600 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach 954-782-1992

Dr. Philip A. Pine & Associates with dental services

in Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale opens third branch

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
Dr. Philip A. Pine has
a one stop dental
practice where
every dental problem can be
handled in one place.
This well-known area
dentist has been practicing
dentistry since 1983, and in
Pompano Beach at 1600 E.
Atlantic Blvd. since 1987. He
has expanded his practice,
opening offices in Fort Lau-
derdale at 2633 E. Commer-
cial Blvd. and most recently
in Plantation at 7420 NW 5
St. He and his staff cover all
three locations.
What's truly unique about
Dr. Pine' s practice is his staff,
which includes associate
dentists, a periodontist, endo-
dontist, prosthodontist, oral
surgeon and orthodontist.
Every conceivable den-
tal problem from regular
dentistry to cosmetic dentistry
can be and is handled within
his offices. When this high
e nIi .'\ dentist sat down with
The Pelican he described his
"We' re a consumer based
dental office, focused on com-
fort, convenience, and high
quality work for a low price.
We do top notch work. Our
equipment is state of the art,
but our fees are extremely rea-
sonable. In fact, we will beat
any written estimate."
One enthusiastic patient,
Harriet Mertz, says, "I can't
say enough good things about
his newly created facility.
It's beautiful, light, airy and
immaculate. Patients sit in
massage chairs, watching
the television show of their
choice while having work
done. I've been a patient of
Dr. Pine for 2 12 years, and I
have been thoroughly satis-
fied. Dr. Pine does all of the
exams and research. He uses a
team approach. Dr. Mark Be-
har is part of his team and he
has corrected problems in my
mouth that other dentists have
missed. He has improved my
bite and my chewing ability.
The assistants are very well
trained and they function like
a second arm for the dentist.
And the prices really are very
Dr. Pine sees all new
patients first and based on
findings, either handles their
needs or puts them in the
hands of a staff member who
specializes in their area of
need. He lists some of the un-
usual aspects of his practice.
"We keep evening hours
to accommodate our work-

ing patients. We offer seda-
tion dentistry which allows
nervous or frightened patients
to sleep during a procedure.
When they awaken, the work
is finished. I'd estimate 10
percent of our patients request
and enjoy coming here be-
cause we offer sedation."
All x-rays are digital
which Dr. Pine says means
80 percent less radiation. He
continues, "Our Waterlase,
is a laser that drills cavities
painlessly eliminating needles
and high pitched drill noises.
There is no pain. There's only
the sound of pulsating water
while the cavity is repaired.
This procedure is ideal for
"For our patients who are
suffering in this economy, we
offer a free dental discount
plan and zero percent financ-
Asked about braces, he said,
"Our orthodontist works with
both children and adults. We
see a lot of young profession-
als who either never had a
chance to have braces when
they were needed, or because
they didn' t wear a retainer as
instructed and have suffered
a relapse. In any event, they
are ready to correct their bites
and appearances. An ortho-
dontist will also fit patients
with Invisalign braces which
are invisible and cosmetically
Asked why he stresses
low prices in his advertising,
he says, "In this economy,
we want potential patients
to know that we keep our
overhead and prices low. We
want patients to take care of
their teeth. That's why we try
to make it financially easier.
In order to give thanks to
the community that has been
so loyal to me, I offer a free
exam which includes an oral
cancer screening, two bite
wing x-rays, TMJ, cosmetic
and periodontal evaluations.
It hasn't happened often, but I
have recognized both pre-can-
cer and cancer lesions."
He says, "An advantage of
having implants done in our
practice is twofold. An oral
surgeon will place the im-
plants rather than a general
dentist. The follow up place-
ment of a permanent crown
will be done at the same
office, saving travel time and
appointments. The patient is
reassured that the dentist and
the surgeon are communicat-
ing closely."
Married with twin ten-year-
olds, Dr. Pine incorporates
both his wife and children into
his advertising. "They get a

Dave and Carol Bruce came

stayed to help people decorate
their homes in South Florida.
"I moved to Florida with
my wife in 1977 and that's
when we purchased the

originally from Toronto. "We

we decided we wanted to

Now, Medallion offers

What separates environmen-

tally friendly flooring from
traditional flooring at Medal-
lion is a Green Select Label.
Products that earn the Select
Label are currently recyclable,
contain a minimum amount
of recycled material and are
made from a natural, sustain-
able and quickly renewable
resource. One example is
Montado Cork flooring, made
from 100 percent natural cork
"When we first bought it,
it was a very small business.
We've grown it substantially.
Carol and I ran it for the first
four or five years." Now they
have seven employees. "I just
handle the management now,"
said Dave.
Before owning his own
business he sold flooring for a
wholesale company to busi-
nesses like the one he owns
For Dave, flooring is in the
family and, it seems, always
in his future. "It' s really the
only thing I've ever done,
work-related, is flooring-relat-
ed things. I've been in floor-
ing all my life. My dad had a
flooring business in Toronto."

Dave says the big box stores
have put a lot of independent
businesses like his out of busi-
ness. But he credits customer
service with keeping him in
his chosen trade. "We offer
the service that the big box
stores can't offer. They've
put a lot the other guys out of

business but we do whatever
necessary to look after the
customers," said Dave.
"One time we had a cus-
tomer in Boca who didn't
like the color of the carpet we
installed. So we replaced that
for them no charge. If people
aren't 100 percent satisfied

we replace it. We also offer
warranties," said Dave. Me-

Father, son chiropractic team forges ahead from an early start in Pompano

Beach to latest technology learned from NASA, Kinesio

After opening its
doors in Pompano
Beach 32 years ago,
another generation of Pine
Chiropractic is in town.
Dr. Ross Pine is partner-
ing with his father, Dr. David
Pine, who began his practice
in 1978. They are committed
to combining the traditional
principles of chiropractic
along with the latest state-of-
the-art tckii hll 1 ,.' to improve

north shore of Long Island.
There he attended Paul D.
Schreiber High School and
was a member of the varsity
tennis and soccer teams.
Dr. David pursued his
higher education at Vanderbilt
University in Nashville, Ten-
nessee where he received a
bachelor of arts degree.
His extra-curricular ac-
tivities included the varsity
soccer team, a position as
chairman of the university's
concert committee, and mem-
bership in the ZBT fraternity.
The National College of
Chiropractic in Lombard,
Illinois is where Dr. David

completed his four-year post
graduate studies in order to re-
ceive his bachelor of science
and doctor of chiropractic
By this time, Dr. David
had met and married his
wife, Dale, and together they
moved to Florida to "thaw
They co-authored a book
entitled Fitness For Couples
which endorses exercising
with a partner to stay fit and
combat the boredom of exer-
cising alone. Their book was
featured in McCall's Maga-
zine and on various television
talk shows.
In November of 1978,
Dr. David opened his chi-
ropractic office in Pompano

the community by lecturing
and writing health articles for
local newspapers, and he also
became the team physician for

fers sensible tips for maintain-
ing a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Ross Pine is a wonder-
ful addition to his father's
well-established and much-
respected practice. While at-
tending Nova High School in

of the distinguished Florida
Youth Orchestra.
Dr. Ross earned a bachelor
of science degree at Tulane
University in New Orleans

ment in Chicago. In addition
to receiving his Doctor of
Chiropractic degree in 2009,
Dr. Ross completed many

Auto Teach ad Body, 429 N. Dixie Hwy., Pompano Beach 954-946-9730

Jay and Chadia find success when business works with a foundation

of honesty, expertise and a commitment to the community

Since childhood, Jay
Ghanem, has been
fascinated by cars
- the way they look, the way
they function and the way
they make the driver feel.
In 2005, Auto Tech and
Body, a towering edifice at
429 N. Dixie Hwy., Pompano
Beach, has since become a
landmark in the Southeast
Florida community.
Jay took his passion and
made it a reality, but he didn't
do it in one step.
After graduating from
Florida Atlantic University
with a degree in engineering,
Mercedes-Benz sent Jay to
Germany to be trained at one
of its plants. The company
then sent him to Germany for
another year of study.
Jay spent three years work-
ing with dealerships and
training employees. During
that time he saw that com-
mission-based services drove
technicians and service advi-
sors to use dishonest practices
because their earnings de-
pended on sales jobs.
Ready to start out on his
own, Jay leased space for 15
cars to open Auto Tech and
Body. His reputation quickly
caused him to outgrow that
space, so he leased a larger
property. Again, he found he
needed more space.
In 2005, Jay purchased
the property at 429 N. Dixie
Hwy.,and the bright yellow,
red and blue building became
part of the business landscape.
He now has space for 90 cars
and has 16 employees.
And Jay has another life,
where he dedicates hours of
his personal time in civic and
volunteer organizations. He
is the incoming president of
The Rotary Club of Pom-
pano Beach. He serves on the
boards of the Pompano Beach
Kiwanis Club, the Boys and
Girls Club and on the board
of the Pompano Beach CRA
advisory board. In Oakland
Park, Jay is the past president
of that Rotary Club.
So how does he run a suc-
cessful business with so much
on his plate? He is quick to
answer that with one word
- delegation.
"I have a great group of em-
ployees. We always remind
our staff that our existence
and our paychecks depend
on every customer that walks
into our doors. Some people
lose track of that. I took an
oath that none of my core
employees would lose their
jobs. I want them to focus on
service to the customers and
not worry about the economic

crisis out there."
But besides "delegation,"
Jay has a secret weapon -- his
sister, Chadia Merouch.
"Chadia is vice president.
She is the power behind Auto
Tech and Body," he says.
Jay's vision was to create an
automotive complex outfitted
by salary-based employees
and customer service oriented
with commitment to the com-
munity and the environment.
Auto Tech and Body was cre-
ated with three employees.

Barton and Miller, 2600 N. Dixie Hwy., Wilton Manors 954-566-4314

An early meeting of the minds at Yeehaw Junction turns into the partnership

of Barton and Miller Dry Cleaners now in its second generation of the family

Back in early 50's,
Ed Miller owned
laundry company in
Fort Lauderdale. Buster Bar-
ton operated a dry cleaning
service in Gainesville.
A soap salesman who
knew both men suggested
they get together.
Miller drove four hours
-with young Rick Miller in
tow to meet the man who
would later become his
life-long business partner.
The four-hour meeting at
Yeehaw Junction was the
beginning of a 27-year-part-
The year was 1954.
Rick remembers the day
fondly, "Dad took me to the
meeting and I got two hot
fudge sundaes." That sun-
dae would later signify "the
sweet smell of success." The
dry cleaning business proved
profitable for the family. Ed
Miller was able to put his
kids through school, live a
decent lifestyle and eventu-
ally retire from the company.
For more than 50 years,
the family-owned com-
pany located at the corner
of Wilton Drive and Dixie
Highway, in Wilton Manors,
has been laundering, spotting
and dry cleaning clothes for
its loyal customers.
Secret to Success
Barton and Miller's busi-
ness philosophy is all about
quality and putting custom-
ers first. "All you have to do
is produce quality work and
have great customer service,
and your customers will
come back," Miller said. "I
am fortunate to have good
employees who do a great
job and alert me of problem
items. They warn me be-
fore it becomes a problem.
We try innovative ways to
correct problems, redo the
cleaning and remake por-
tions of the garment if neces-
Customer loyalty and
great service resulted in a
booming business for Barton
& Miller, which afforded
Miller the opportunity to
send his kids to college. Rick
went to college and earned a
bachelor's degree in busi-
ness at Transylvania Univer-
sity in Lexington, Kentucky
and a masters in education at

Western Carolina University
where he would later coach
for 17 years.
In the early 80's, Rick
returned home and bought
the business from his father
in 1983; four years later he
bought out Buster Barton's
share. He knew the dry
cleaning company would
help him reach his financial
goals, take care of his family
and send his three kids to
Recession and Economy
Rick has seen the economy
take a downward turn and is
grateful his company hasn't
been hit hard by the reces-
sion. "We had two employ-
ees move out of state, and
we haven't had to lay-off
or fire anyone." Miller said.
"So it worked out pretty well
for us."
Miller says he's been able
to keep 20 to 28 employees
for the past 54 years. He
adds, "We have good people
who treat the customer like
they want to be treated and
that's the important part. Our
manager Mike was 16-years-
old when he first started
working for us. He worked
at night when he was in high
school and after graduation
he stayed and worked with
us full-time," Miller said.
"Mike then went to massage
therapy school and moved
to St. Louis. Then he came
back to work for us. He went
to dry cleaning school and
management school and is
now a manager.
Greatest Reward
Miller's greatest reward is
taking the customers favor-
ite garment that was soiled
or stained and working his
magic to make it appear new
again. "Every piece of cloth-
ing is different. When you
salvage something like that,
that's a happy customer,"
said Miller.
Once he restored a wed-
ding dress that was more
than a century old. "It almost
looked coffee-colored. I told
the customer that the dress
may disintegrate, It had been
worn by three generations
and skipped one, when I
completed the dry cleaning
process the dress turned out
new looking and the custom-
er wore it for her wedding."

Change has come
Rick would later encounter
bigger problems: He discov-
ered that toxic waste in the
dry cleaning business had
an effect on the atmosphere.
Miller and 15 drycleaners
around the state worked
with Attorney Fred Mc-
Cormack to create a cleanup
law that would protect the
environment. The group was
instrumental in helping to
make dry cleaning a greener
industry. "Back in the day
we would use a washer and
dryer to dry clean clothes,
and the waste would go
into the ground, Rick said.
"Now the clothes go into the
machine dry and come out
dry, there are no chemicals
in the air."

Barton & Miller has been a
landmark at 5 Points in Wilton
manors since 1956.

Business Contribution
Rick and his wife Sherry
have made an effort to give
back to their community.
Rick coached little league in
his community, and spon-
sors several sport teams and
youth league. He and his
wife always participate in
city events. Rick has been
on several boards: past
president of Wilton Man-
ors Business Association,

president of the Kiwanis
Club of Wilton Manors and
has served on several recre-
ational boards for the City
of Wilton Manors. Sherry
sits on the Wilton Manors
board for "The Taste of the
Miller hopes to someday
retire from the business, no
word yet if one of his three
children will return to South
Florida and run the family

CHAOS Serious Fishing Equipment, 449 S. Federal Hwy., Pompano Beach 954-876-1631

CHAOS held that tight line long enough to pull

in the perfect store for the serious angler

CHAOS Rods start-
ed in 1991 with
the goal of produc-
ing high quality hand-made
fishing rods manufactured
direct for the consumer.
Out of a tiny tackle shop
in Lake Worth, Florida a
local father and son first

Word spread through the
marinas and piers and the
company slowly grew and
eventually they opened a
manufacturing plant and in
1995 started producing the
signature black and gold
CHAOS rods that fisherman
recognize today.
In 2000, a family dispute
separated the father and
son team and a new partner
purchased half the firm. The
new partner was not new to
the fishing industry. He had
founded a San Diego, Cali-
fornia fishing lure firm that
similarly to the rod business
in Lake Worth had created
a significant local following
in California and Hawaii.
The rod and lure business
were combined to form

CHAOS Fishing. Soon after
the new partnership formed
a location was added in
Pompano Beach, just West
of 1-95 in an industrial park
adjacent to Sultan Drapery.
For almost a decade the
partners grew and expanded
the business. They became
cornerstones of the local
fishing community and soon
began to display their prod-
ucts at over a dozen boat and
marine shows from Texas to
Success followed and
the company struggled to
keep up with growth, soon
purchasing Miami-based
Gator Glass Blanks to make
the rod blanks that were
integral to their products.
Gator Glass Blanks had
been evolving the heavy
solid fiberglass rod blanks
to much lighter, yet almost
indestructible, "e-glass."
This addition made it far
easier to control product
quality and specify exact
requirements for CHAOS'
signature fast-taper stand-up
and live-bait rods.

Anglers have wide variety of choices at CHAOS when it comes to a new rod, but the experts at CHAOS are ready to
give advice.

All was fine for a number

Pompano Ford Lincoln Mercury, 2741 N. Federal Hwy., Pompano Beach 800-560-9863

At Ford Lincoln Mercury, everyone is proud that Ford never took government

money and that pride carries through with the employees to each customer

Rick Zich has been
at Pompano Ford
Lincoln Mer-
cury just about as long as the
woodwork. "They tell me I
smell just about as bad too,"
he jokes.
This August marks 36 years
that Zich, originally from
North Dakota, has worked at
Pompano Ford Lincoln Mer-
cury and 20 years since be-
coming general manager. He
started with the company in
1971. The dealership opened
in 1974.
Before becoming general
manager he was the chief
financial officer. "I've had my
chance to put my fingers in
a bunch of different things."
Zich says the business of
selling cars "is really about
the people in the business,
the employees and customers.
You get such a wide variety
of people," said Zich about
the employees. "You've got
a lot of people that you like
working with everyday."
Zich has been with the

ship in Fort Lauderdale, since
he got out of the U.S. Army in
1969, where he trained artil-

lery officer candidates who

He says things will never
be like they were 40 years
ago, but the basics of sales-
manship haven't changed. "If
you don't make the customer
happy, you're not going to
sell a car. The customer is the
number one person walking
in the door." Although sales
in 21st Century isn't shaping
up as well as they did in the
20th, Zich says this year has
been good. "If you compare
the business this year with last
year we're doing awesome;

2008 and 2009 were pretty
tough years."
Although it has been two
years, Zich says some custom
ers still don't know about a
big part of their business. "A
lot of people still don't real-
ize we're a Ford dealership.
That's probably the biggest
thing we're trying to get out
there." And that new name is
a source of pride, Zich says,
for him and his co-workers.
Ford is the only one of the
"Big Three" American car
manufacturers to not take
government assistance. "It

Beyond that, he says, Pom-
pano Ford Lincoln Mercury is
good company to work for.
"If you do the right thing,
they do the right thing. It's a
good company to work for.
We take good care of them.
They take good care of us."
Two years ago the dealer-
ship added Ford to its name
and its inventory and recently
completed some expansion
work. "We just redid the
whole front and added a nice
new entrance way about a
month ago."

OK Tire Stores, 3381 N. Dixie Highway, Pompano Beach 954-941-8204
Lou Miranda stands up for his rights, he knows the meaning of honesty and
that's why his customers over 50 years in Pompano Beach keep coming back

Tires are Lou Miran-
da's life.
Miranda and his
two sons, Jeff and Greg are
the owners of OK Tire, locat-
ed on Dixie Highway just
south of Sample Road.
Miranda acquired the com-
pany in 1960 when he was
20 years old. The previous
owner decided to call it quits
and offered Miranda the op-
portunity to purchase it.
"I was scared to death at
20 years old, said Miranda.
"I said 'Wow that is a lot of
money.'" Miranda paid the
owner $500 a month for 10
years until the $50,000 loan
was paid off.
August marks the compa-
ny's 50th anniversary.
The main focus of the
company was tires, brakes
and alignments. Now it's a

facility. Miranda says the
company grew to accommo-
date the needs of his custom-
ers. "I progressed with the
business, back in the 60's
it was simple. Now it's all
computers and technology."
OK Tires also grew in size.
In 1994, The Department
of Transportation, or DOT,
widened Dixie Highway and
forced Miranda to move.
Miranda says he had to fight
with DOT to get a fair sum
for his old building.
"DOT tried to give me a
small amount for the busi-
ness, so I took them to court
and got twice the amount
they offered me. I was able to
purchase an existing building
that was three times the size
of the old facility," Miranda

OK Tires' growth has al-
lowed Miranda to employ 12
people. He adds, "We kept
working the business and
now have this little monster."
Miranda attributes his
success to loyal customers.
"We take pride in giving
personal service. We give
honest service and as a result
we get repeat business," said
Miranda. "We don't do a lot
of advertisement our repeat
business comes from word of
mouth. Our customers trust
us, and they know that we
won't stick it to them. We
charge a fair price."
But he adds the downturn
in the economy has helped
his company. "People are not
buying new cars. They are
fixing the ones they've got."
The company has become a
family affair, Miranda's two
sons are co-owners, and his
niece is the bookkeeper. He
says neither one of his sons
wanted to go to college. "Jeff
started working for me when
he was 15-years-old. He
came here after school. Greg
went out to do something
else, and now he is back in
the business. Working with
my sons is a great thing. You
don't have to worry when
you go on vacation. When
one person takes off, you
have two others to cover the
business. Now these men are
my partners."
With his sons in tow, you
would think 70-year-old Lou
Miranda would be retiring
- especially after undergoing
heart surgery.
Think again. Miranda
describes himself as a worka-
holic, putting in 60 hours a
week. "This is all I've done.
If I retire I will go crazy.
I have to do something or
I will get bored. I am not
the type to sit around," said
"I had the bypass surgery
three months ago. My doctor
discovered that there was 99
percent blockage in my main
artery. Since I've had the
surgery I feel fantastic. "
The Miranda men have also
partnered in other ventures:
giving back to their commu-
nity. "We have been spon-
soring the boys little league
for 40 years in Pompano and
Deerfield. We are the old-
est sponsor in the league.
We also donate to different
causes," said Jeff Miranda.

Ken Arnold, McNab descendant, local chiropractor

or Chiropractor
Ken Arnold, a
strong spine is only
part of a healthy body.
His approach to chiro-
practic care at the Arnold
Chiropractic Health Cen-
ter focuses on structural,
nutritional and emotional
issues. The body is healthy
when structural, biochemi-
cal and emotional aspects
are harmoniously balanced,
he explains.
Many of his current
clients are seeking help for
stress-related issues.
"Sometimes stress has an
emotional impact which
can result in physical pain,"
said Arnold. Most of his
patients are experiencing
back or neck pain. Some
have problems with ankles,
joints, hips or shoulders.
"I have no problem say-
ing 'I can't help'," Arnold
said. "If I can't help them
in two or three visits, I
tell them they need to see
someone else. The body
can heal itself, but the

patient needs to take the
initiative to get better."
Ken graduated with a
doctor of chiropractic de-
gree from Life Chiropractic
College in Marietta, Geor-
gia in June of 1964. He
opened his Pompano Beach
office in 1987, which is
located at 2118 E. Atlantic
Blvd. in Pompano Beach.
His office hours are 8:30
a.m. to 1 p.m. His office
hours allow him to spend
his afternoons as a volun-
teer baseball coach.
He coaches the American
Legion teams and the Pom-
pano Beach Youth All-Star
team. Arnold said his base-
ball players often experi-
ence problems with their
elbows, shoulders or back,
sometimes from stress or
overwork. He tells them,
"Coca-Cola is not a natural

Dylan, 16, will be a junior

sive care nurse at Broward
General Hospital.
Ken is a past president of
the Pompano Beach Rotary
Club. He is a member of
American Legion Post 142.
He also serves on the parks
and recreation advisory
The couple also host the
annual "Halloween Haunt-
ed Trail" which takes place
on the grounds of their
home in the 1700 block of
East Atlantic Boulevard.
This was once the home of
his great-great grandfather
Harry McNab, which at
one time was the closest
house in Pompano to the
beach. Proceeds from the

"Haunted Trail" go to the
"Dynamos," a non-profit
organization offering recre-
ation programs for mentally
handicapped adults.
Harry McNab came to
Pompano Beach in 1898,
at age 17, after a freeze
destroyed the family citrus
grove near Orlando.
He operated the post
office on the east side of
Lake Barbara. He farmed
with his brother Bob. In
the early years Harry ran a
grocery store and built the
city's first movie theater,
both in the "Old Pompano"
commercial area just east of
the Florida East Coast Rail-
way and north of Atlantic
Boulevard. The family had
the city's first automobile
and its first electric lights.
In 1922, Harry was an
organizer and vice presi-
dent of the city's first bank,
Bank of Pompano.
In the 1930s he built
some of the city's first
apartment houses. The
brother's homes were com-

pleted just in time for the
1926 hurricane.
Harry operated a pack-
inghouse, was a contractor
and operated a general store
on Flagler Avenue. He was
also a member of the city
council. He died in his two-
story brick home on Feb.
15, 1956.
The McNab family name
has been used to name
a road, school and park.
Harry donated the land next
to the park where the cham-
ber of commerce is located
on East Atlantic Boulevard,
just east of McNab Park
and east of Arnold's office.
Ken is the grandson of
devoted grandparents, the
late Gladys McNab Walker
and Ken Walker. He is the
son of the late Betty Jeanne
Walker and Robert M.
Arnold. His father was an
attorney and small claims
court judge and his mother
was a teacher. He has two
siblings, Mary Arnold and
Robert Arnold, Jr., both of
Pompano Beach.

Originally opened
in 1982, Check-

more than just sausage," says
Moore as he pours a gigantic

This dark, medium bod-

Kostritzer is my favorite. It' s
Germany's answer to Guin-

For wine lovers, the Peter

from this crisp white varietal
of the Rhine region.

Veal Wienerschnitzel features a lightly breaded veal cutlet saut6ed in lemon
butter. Here, it comes served with potato dumpling and red cabbage and can be
topped with a flavorful house brown gravy if desired.

Another crowd pleaser is
the eye-popping Schwein-

reasonable," say regular local

Tipperary Pub, The Cove Shopping Center, 1540 3 Ct., Deerfield Beach -954-421-9769

Deerfield's Tipperary Pub serves up Irish fare with neighborly flair

Welcoming thirsty
patrons since
1975, the old
Tipperary Pub is practically
a landmark in the Deerfield
Beach community.
"We took over from Big
Ron in April of 2003," says
current owner Dick Maggiori
as he reminisces about the
persistence it required to fi-
nally procure this well-estab-
lished tavern and eatery from
its previous proprietor.
Along with the help of busi-
ness partner Danny O'Connor,
Maggiori has continued the
tradition of offering typical
Irish pub fare in a friendly
neighborhood bar setting.
The New York native has
been in the food industry
since 1976 when he opened
his first deli in the Rockaway
district of Queens.
Now, Maggiori focuses his
energies on his two core busi-
nesses: Tricky Dick's in West
Boca and the Tipperary Pub.
"I absolutely love it here in
Deerfield. I used to live in Ft
Lauderdale but moved up here
because it is so much more
enjoyable," says the dedicated

appetizers, grilled specialties
and sandwiches.
"Our Irish Farmhouse
breakfast features bangers,
sausage and blood pudding
all imported from Cork in
Ireland," says Maggiori.
For those who have visited
the Emerald Isle, this meal
will definitely bring back
memories. In addition, a nice
portion of zesty home fries

accompanies most traditional
breakfast dishes.
Omelettes, pancakes,
smoked salmon and made-
from-scratch biscuits & gravy
are some of the other good
"Some days people are
waiting in line outside the
door when we open. The
locals really enjoy our food,"
says smiling bartender Mi-

chelle. For the lunch and din-
ner menu, The Tipperary Pub
offers up all the classics one
could expect to find in a good
sports bar. Grilled fish Caesar
salad, chicken wings, moz-
zarella sticks, smoked fish dip
and hearty clam chowder are
just a few of the starters to
whet one's appetite.
"I make just about every-
thing from scratch," says
Tipperary's Chef George as
he brings out a sizeable half-
rack of ribs smothered in a
tanly house BBQ sauce.
Other favorites from the
grill include the O'Bacon
Burger with cheese, the 10
oz New York Strip steak, the
grilled tuna steak and the filet
of sole.
"Our baby-back ribs,
meatballs and chowder are
all excellent," says Maggiori.
There is also a good choice of
subs and sandwiches such as
Philly cheese steak, chicken
breast, dolphin, stacked Irish
ham and even liverwurst.
But the Tipperary is also
very much a pub. With pool
tables, dart boards, table shuf-
fleboard, umpteen flat screen
TVs with sports packages and
a well-stocked bar, there is
plenty of entertainment for

"We have dart teams, a pool
league and even a softball
team. We also have a pig roast
on the 4th Sunday of each
month during high season,"
says Maggiori. Happy hour is
from 4 to 8 p.m. daily. Ladies
night is on Monday from 8
pm to midnight.
There is free wi-fi and
discount coupons can also
be printed directly from the
pub's website at www.tipper-
arypub.net. The average dish
cost about $6 and breakfast
starts at $2.99. Daily lunch
specials are posted on boards.
Take-out is popular and free
parking is plentiful.
"We have an emergency
generator to make sure we
never close during hurricanes.
People travel from far away to
come see us at those times,"
chuckles Maggiori.
"We also have a stimulus
special featuring a 16 oz Pabst
Blue Ribbon for $1.75," adds
the wily entrepreneur.
Reminiscent of Cheers, the
little Boston bar so famously
depicted on television, the
Tipperary is the kind of pub
where everyone remembers
your name. L\ ciybody
knows everybody. This is
a very friendly place," says

Campbell & Rosemurgy Real Estate, Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point, Pompano Beach 954-781-4747

Campbell & Rosemurgy Real Estate: 57 years of continued growth

This year marks the
57th anniversary of
Campbell & Rose-
murgy Real Estate, the area's
oldest family-owned and
operated real estate firm.
In the past half century, the
company has grown from the
husband and wife team of Bill
Campbell Sr., and his wife,
Mary, to become one of the
largest real estate sales and
property management com-
panies in south Florida. Mary
Campbell recently passed
away in March 2010.
Mary Campbell is the fam-
ily matriarch and historian.
She came to Pompano Beach
in 1953 from Long Island
with her husband and three
children to open their office.
Mary said, "Pompano
Beach was very different back
then... so much sand, and
dirt roads everywhere. But the
people here were so friendly.
Bill knew this was where we
were meant to be."
From its beginning, the
business continued to grow.
In 1970, Campbell Real Estate
moved to its present location
as 1233 E. Hillsboro Bou-
levard in Deerfield Beach.
The second generation of
Campbells, Bruce and Bill
Jr., joined the business and
continued to grow and expand
its services. By this time,
the Campbells were offering
property management as well
as sales, adding more associ-
ates and creating a reputation
for integrity.
As the company continued
to flourish that reputation
held. Now the original com-
pany has evolved into several
The principal owners are
Bruce Campbell, Bill Camp-
bell III, John Tight and Jim
R 'l. ciltl .1y, all actively in-
volved in daily operations.

The real estate division is
now known as Campbell &
Rosemurgy and has three
offices in Broward and South
Palm Beach counties with
over 120, many of whom have
been with the firm for over
20 years, associates that have
earned a number of special-
ized certifications such as
Certified Residential Special-
ist, or CRS, Graduate of Real
Estate Institute, or GRI, and
Certified Distressed Property
Expert, or CDPE.
Kiku Martinson oversees
the real estate division of the
company. She attributes its
success to more than knowl-
edge and resources. "We are
a solid company with a strong
foundation made up of com-

munity minded, hard working
and professional agents. We
have successfully remained
the top selling offices in
Deerfield Beach and Light-
house Point."
Rosemurgy agrees, saying,
"Our success and growth
over the years are due to all
the hard-working agents...

professionalism have made

"Our average property man-

with us more than 10 years,"
said Bill III.
"That's one of the highest
retention rates in the industry.
When we see numbers like
that, we know we are doing

McNamara Chiropractic Center, 3320 N. Federal Hwy., Lighthouse Point 954-943-1100.

McNamara Chiropractic Center has been offering pain

relief to patients in Lighthouse Point for 21 years

M any aching backs
have found relief
at the McNamara
Chiropractic Center, 3320 N.
Federal Highway in Light-
house Point, or LHP, where
Carol McNamara Krauss,
Doctor of Chiropractic medi-
cine has had her practice for
over 21 years.
She has treated and helped
patients suffering with herni-
ated discs, osteoarthritis,
sprains, strains, spinal steno-
sis, scoliosis and more. "We
can and do restore normal spi-
nal motion to eliminate pain
without drugs or surgery. Per-
haps the most important thing
we do is halt the progression
of the relentless degenerative
McNamara remembers
wanting to be a physical
therapist when she was a
teenager. \ ly career focus
changed when I went to work
part time for two chiroprac-
tors while I was in school,"
she says.
"Watching them made me
want to do what they did. I
gave up my scholarship to
FIU, applied to and was ac-
cepted in the graduate school
at Life Chiropractic College
in Marietta, Georgia. This
post graduate education put
special emphasis on anatomy,
physiology, n1u. iIIl1,_'v\ and
spinal biomechanics. I gradu-
ated in 1985."
After graduation she worked
in several chiropractic clinics
before going on her own in
1988. "I have a large follow-

ing of patients who enjoy
regular chiropractic check
ups for wellness care," she
explains. "This type of care
can save time and money by
keeping minor problems from
becoming more serious."
Michele Greene, State Farm
owner/agent is a big believer
in the benefits of chiropractic
benefits, and she says, "I've
been a patient of Carol' s for at
least five years. I do so much
running around between my
business and my volunteer
activities that I need to be
adjusted from time to time. I
go in feeling like 10-cents and
walk out feeling like a mil-
lion. You can't beat that can
New patients usually come
to her with a complaint of
pain. "We take a thorough
case history, do a physical ex-
amination and often a spinal
x-ray to determine the source
of the pain. At that time, a
recommended care plan is
suggested to the patient. It
could be a combination of
spinal adjustment, physical
therapy, massage therapy
and/or a nutritional plan. I' m
a 'hands on' practitioner who
enjoys seeing patients respond
to holistic care without pills
or surgery.
Instead of muscle relax-
ers or addictive pain pills, I
believe the common sense
approach is to help restore
normal structure and function
of the spine. Periodic check
ups will keep the correction."
One of her patients is her

Dr. McNamara believes in holistic care and avoiding pills and surgery wherever possible.

running coach, Howard
Elakman, who turned 81 in
August of this year. He says,
"I've had a bad back for years
and Carol is helping me a lot
using a variety of treatments.
She loosens my neck, adjusts
me, and her heat treatments
are amazing. My body totally
relaxes and all the tensions
go. I was in good shape for
the 13.1 mile, half marathon
on November 15 in Fort Lau-
derdale. Carol ran too. She's
built for running, and she now
beats me."
Orthopedic physicians,
neurologists and primary care
doctors often refer patients

to McNamara for evaluation
and treatment to correct the
problem and relieve pain.
Neck and lower back pain are
the most frequent complaints
as the result of trauma, repeti-
tive micro trauma (doing little
things wrong over and over
again), genetic predisposition
and general wear and tear.
Her comfortable and well
equipped suite of offices
includes a favorite piece of
"I love this motorized
adjustment table which is
unique," she says. "It allows
a patient in pain to be moved
from a standing to a recum-

bent position automatically.
My older patients and those
in pain appreciate the table.
Children think it's fun.
I have many modalities such
as therapeutic ultra sound,
electrical muscle stimulation,
traction and cold laser, but
my trained hands are my most
valuable tool."
Professional licensing
renewal requires 40 hours of
continuing education every
two years. McNamara says,
"This training is very ben-
eficial but I feel my over 20
years of experience is invalu-
able in my ability to accurate-
ly diagnose, correct and help
many people with a multitude
of problems. I feel honored
to be able to help so many
patients from this area. It' s a
career that gives me tremen-
dous gratification."
Married to Robert Krauss,
a private pilot, the couple has
one daughter, Kelly, who is a
college student.
McNamara is a vibrant
young woman who makes
time to be in great shape her-
self so it is not surprising to
learn she runs marathons and
is a cyclist who participates in
events year 'round.
She also makes time for
her community, serving on
the boards of the Lighthouse
Point Chamber of Commerce
and Woodhouse, a residen-
tial facility for handicapped
adults. She is a supporter
and committee member of
the Pompano Beach Fishing
Medicare, Medicaid and
most insurances are accepted.

Dr. Edwin Delz, 2323 NE 26 St., Lighthouse Point 954-633-7075

A 35-year successful practice in Lighthouse Point and

the newest technology give Dr. Edwin Delz an edge

Over a bowl of Kashi

Delz talked to The
Pelican about his 35-year
practice in the same Light-
house Point location at 2323
NE 26 Ave. for all of those
In addition to a beautiful
suite of offices, this dentist
has invested in the newest
tck. nii l,' 'y. He's quick to
show off a Cerec machine
which he calls the ultimate
in dental restoration. "With
this equipment I can cus-
tom design and fabricate a
new crown while the patient
watches," he says.
"In one visit I can solve a
problem that most dentists
need two weeks to equal.
That means eliminating two
injections, two visits and
two weeks of living with the
insecurity of a temporary
crown. One of my patients
broke a tooth and was flying
to India the next day. I was
able to create a custom crown
in one visit and send him hap-
pily on his way."
Delz admits this possibil-
ity was unheard of when
he opened his practice in
1973. "I try to stay ahead
of the pack with tck.ii hn1< ,1,'\

that provides a better service
and more comfort for my
patients. This machine can
make a crown or an implant in
one visit. I work with oral sur-
geons who place the implants
and send their patients to me
for crowns. The universal
law on price is that good is
more expensive and cheap is
inferior. It's true for dentistry
too. I try to provide a service
beyond the patient's expecta-
He does just that as far as
Yvette Chantre-Circu, Fort
Lauderdale, is concerned.
She says, "Dr. Delz recently
finished replacing 24 old
crowns in my mouth. He did a
magnificent job. I couldn't be
more pleased. He is not only a
skilled dentist, but he is also a
very kind man."
Kent Christman, Oakland
Park, has been a patient since
1984. He says. "I went into
his office to sell him insur-
ance, and I saw his sign, 'We
cater to Cowards.' I knew I
had found a home. He has
taken great care of me for 26
years. I'm no longer a coward.

ry. "I sometimes solve dental

problems for patients that
they are unaware that they
have. Headaches can often be
caused by a bad bite or facial

He continues, "I was

The brain child of Darick

pose is the gentle harnessing

function to resolve skeletal
He continues, "Many adults
enter our practices with mul-
tiple tooth arch and cranial
defects. They have short toler-
ances time for wearing fixed
orthodontic appliances. The
ALF may create the possibil-
ity of augmenting, enhancing
and decreasing the length of
orthodontic treatment."
"These appliances are well
tolerated by adults since they
can be removed and inserted
at the discretion of the pa-
tient to bring about cranial
realignment. This improve-
ment can lead to centered
realignment which affects
the entire body. The patient
becomes taller. The shoulders
will realign. The hips will re-
align and the patient's posture
improves. The results can be
relief of TMJs, headaches, the
ability to walk, improve com-
petitive swim times and other
patient body issues. I balance
bites, faces and bodies with
this t.c-liim,,l '! y. My goal is to
offer services that benefit the
patient and are seldom offered
in dental practices."
Since receiving a liver
transplant in 1998 at the
University of Miami/Jack-
son Memorial Hospital, Dr.
Delz has become a transplant
ambassador and organ donor

He says, "With the introduc-
tion of new antiviral drugs,
I am completely free of the
Hep C virus. I owe my life
to my donor and his fam-
ily. I received a gift. My life
was saved, and I owe a life.
I attempt to pay back every
day by sharing the story of
my donor's gift of life and his
family's compassion. I do this
by demonstrating, writing and
speaking of the importance of
organ donations."
Delz third passion is Aikido
which he describes as "com-
passionate martial art."
It uses physics' principals
and movement. As a defen-
sive art, one works to gain
control of mind and body. "I
am proud to have just earned
my black belt. It amazes me
that at my age I can dive in
the air, fall, roll and get up.
To me, the black belt means
I'm a beginner who can
now improvise and create
techniques as my mind sees
new possibilities in each
movement. We, my donor
and I, prove that vital organ
transplant is no longer an
experimental procedure but is
a viable treatment alternative.
We practice Aikido to show
every donor family that their
decision to donate was the
right choice."

WWII Vet, Edward P. Dietrich, started his small concrete block plant in

1947 and watched it grow to an 80,000 sq. ft. center for building supplies

tesy of Deerfield Builder Supply, Deerfield Beach]

Deerfield Builders
Supply was founded
in 1947 and began
operations under the leader-
ship of Edward P. Dietrich,
its first president and general
Ed had returned from Japan
a year earlier after three
World War II ship commands
in the U.S. Navy.
Recently celebrating his
94th birthday, Edward P.
Dietrich continues to maintain
involvement in the business
but in an advisory capacity
from his homes in Deerfield
Beach and North Carolina.
The second generation of
this family business is rep-
resented by son, Edward H.
Dietrich, who joined the busi-
ness in 1976.
The third generation is
also on board, represented
by grandson, Bradley Wan-
zenberg, and granddaughters,
Jessica Dietrich and Gretchen
Early operations began with
the manufacture of con-
crete blocks. Soon lumber,
hardware and other building
materials were added to the
mix and eventually block
manufacturing was phased out
as the company evolved into a
full-fledged lumber yard.
The original operation oc-
cupied approximately 5,000
square feet of wood frame
warehouses straddling Rail-
road Avenue. Now DBS
operates out of over 80,000
square feet of manufacturing,
warehouse, and office space
on nearly five acres in Deer-
field Beach with two satel-

lite locations in Tampa and
Sarasota serving the Naples
to Tampa Bay markets and
The Deerfield location
serves its core geographical
market from Miami to north
Palm Beach County. The
company's export division op-
erates out of Deerfield while
shipping to the Bahamas and
throughout the Caribbean.
Deerfield Builders Supply
has always maintained a tradi-
tion of community service and
involvement. DBS was a char-
ter member of the Deerfield
Beach Chamber of Commerce
and is the oldest sponsor of
the Deerfield Beach Little
League. DBS is involved with
Habitat for Humanity, local
Historical Societies, overseas
Missions, the Boy Scouts and
much more.
DBS is as proud of its
philanthropic efforts as it is of
its hard-earned reputation in
the Florida building materi-
als industry. That tradition of
serving the community was
begun by Edward P. Dietrich
and was recognized by the
City of Deerfield Beach by
the renaming of 2nd Avenue
to Edward Dietrich Sr. Av-
DBS' customers include
custom home builders, remod-
elers, national home builders,
homeowners, governments
and commercial/institutional
accounts. While still heavily
involved in the commodity
forest products/building ma-
terials business, DBS' fastest
growing market segments are
in windows, doors, millwork,

and kitchen cabinetry. Re-
cently DBS completed con-
struction of a state-of-the-art
reinforcing steel fabrication
plant making it one of the fin
est in Florida.

DBS offers window, door,
cabinet, and millwork instal-
lations through its Florida
licensed General Contracting
affiliate, DBS Construction
Services. Projects include

national award-winning cabi-
netry, a million-dollar country
club window installation,
technically demanding educa-
tion and institutional jobs and
historical restoration.


For 63 years, Deerfield
Builders Supply has been
helping South Florida build
beautiful homes.

Whether you're a builder,
remodeler, homeowner or

products you need to

Both disorders are corrected

Beacon Light Jewelers, 2484 N. Federal Hwy., Lighthouse Point 954-942-9318 www.beaconlightjewelers.com

In Lighthouse Point, Charlie and Rita Davis are the first to know about

engagements, babies and other milestone events that make history

Beacon Light Jewel-
ers was one of the
original stores in
the Beacon Light Shopping
Center that was opened in
1958, making it one of the
oldest established businesses
in Lighthouse Point.
I do not know who the
original owner was, but when
I moved to town in 1975
Mr. John Redding owned
the store. Mr. Redding was a
watchmaker and sold watches,
jewelry and gifts. He had a
saleslady who worked with
him for many years by the
name of Dora.
In 1985 Mr. Reading sold
the store to Dave and Tom
Little. Dave was the manager
of the watch repair depart-
ment at Sears in the Pompano
Fashion Square. His son Tom
was a jeweler.
They owned the store for
about two years.

A few of the obstacles the

of Federal Highway, which
closed off excess to the shop-

J.R. Dunn's Jewelers, 4210 N. Federal Hwy., Lighthouse Point 954-782-5000 www.store.jrdunn.com

J.R. Dunn Jewelers Celebrating 41 Years In The Family Business

The story of this
successful jewelry
family began back
in the 1960's in the northeast.
James Robert Dunn started
his career in 1967 as a sales
representative for IBM where
he had the good fortune to
meet Ann Marie Pelliccia,
who also worked for the
company. They were married
in 1969 and decided to take a
chance and go into the jewelry
business. With their savings
of $10,000, they purchased
a small house in Hanover,
Massachusetts, and converted
it into their first jewelry store,
During the first year, their
store was burglarized and
every piece of jewelry was
taken (including custom-
ers' repairs). The Dunn's
misfortune turned out to be
a blessing in disguise. The
couple went from door to door
informing and reassuring each
client that their prized pos-
sessions would be replaced.
Ann Marie and Jim paid for
the stolen jewelry out of their
own pockets to preserve their
reputation for integrity and
trust. Their client loyalty
today is second to none.
Business grew dramatically
and The House of Gems soon
outgrew its tiny location. Jim
and Ann Marie relocated
the store to a nearby mall in
South Weymouth, Massachu-
setts and changed the name to
J.R. Dunn Jewelers, placing
an emphasis on the impor-
tance of the family-owned and
operated business.
In 1978, they relocated to
South Florida and opened a
small jewelry boutique, which
served a select clientele by
appointment only. However,
word spread and once again,
J.R. Dunn Jewelers outgrew
its location. That brought
about the monumental de-
cision to purchase a 6,000
square foot building on Fed-
eral Highway in Lighthouse
Point, FL.
The location has since
grown and expanded its
flagship store in Lighthouse
Point to 8,000 square feet.
J.R. Dunn Jewelers is an
authorized retailer of many
designer jewelry lines and
renowned Swiss timepieces,
including Rolex, Breitling,
and Chopard. They also
feature a wide selection of
diamonds and an extensive
Diamond Engagement Center.
In addition, J.R. Dunn has a
complete Jewelry Design Stu-
dio featuring award-winning
designer Robert Pelliccia,
Ann Marie' s brother. Robert
has won multiple international
design awards from such pres-
tigious groups as DeBeers,

the American Gem Trade
Association's Spectrum &
Platinum Awards, and Mod-
ern Jeweler's Buyer's Choice
Award. J.R. Dunn also pro-
motes in-house services such
as: complete jewelry repair,
restoration and restyling;
and a Swiss Watch Service
Center with a team of Master
Watchmaker's certified to
repair, overhaul and restore
most prominent Swiss watch
J.R. Dunn Jewelers includes
a veteran staff of profession-
als with over 300 years of
combined experience in the
jewelry industry, as well as
Graduate Gemologists trained
by the prestigious Gem-
ological Institute of America
(GIA). Today, Jim and Ann
Marie's son Sean, who earned
his Bachelor of Science in
Business Management from
the University of Florida as
well as his gemological de-
gree from GIA, continues the
legacy of excellence built by
his parents.
Over the decades, the Dunn
family has developed many
relationships in the com-
munity. Their commitment
to greater south Florida is
evident by their financial
contribution and support of
many charitable organizations
including: The Boys & Girls
Club of Broward County,
National Multiple Sclero-
sis Society South Florida
Chapter, American Heart
Association Greater South-
east Affiliate, The Humane

Milbern's Shaver Center, 2482 N. Federal Hwy. in the Shoppes of Beacon Light in Lighthouse Point 954-941-3213

Milbern's Shaver Center has been exactly what people who believe in repair

instead of buying a new one have been using since the 50's in LHP

and easily replace-
able products, Bill and
Marge Boyd have built their'
business on making things

The couple own and oper-
ate Milbern' s Shave Center in
the Shoppes of Beacon Light
in Lighthouse Point. They
sharpen blades, shears, scis-
sors and repair electric razors,
clippers and other grooming
equipment for the beauty, bar-
ber and grooming industry.
"We mainly service profes-
sional groomers both in the
large and small animal cate-
gories. In addition, we service
the individual pet groomers,"
said Marge.
"Professionals are the main
part of our business." A lot of
Milbern's customers' animals
aren't the average household
pet. Horses, lamas and sheep
are among those that benefit
from Milbern's expertise and
service. "We also service
many of our local barbers and
beauticians," said Marge.
Marge, who spent 30 years
in the dental field, and Bill,
who spent 40 years in the
computer industry, moved to
Florida in 1972 from Dela-
ware. Before the two bought
Milbern's in 1998, they
worked for years without a
store repairing instruments for
dog and horse groomers.
"We wanted to expand and
represent a major manufactur-
er, and in order to do that we
had to own a retail business,"
said Marge.
But before buying Milbern' s
with his wife, Bill was a
customer. "He got all excited
when he went to Milbern' s
to get his shaver repaired and
saw the shop was for sale,"
said Marge of her husband.
"I've always used electric

razors," said Bill.
Originally opened in 1958
by Mildred Graves and Ber-
nice Hoffman, two sisters who
combined their first names
to come up with a name for
the business, Milbern's has
been sold six times. Its current
proprietor's have owned the
business longer than any-
one else, even Hoffman and
Graves. Marge says a lot of
their business depends on

two things: practicality and
"A lot of the older genera-
tion still believes in repairing
rather than buying a dispos-
able item." And it's not just
older customers that come
to Milbern's. "It is getting
to be a younger crowd," said
Marge. But old or young,
saving money is a universal
value. "It's not an inexpen-
sive item to purchase. They

don't mind spending money
if they know it's going to last
for them," said Marge. When
they first bought the business
Marge ran it by herself for
almost five years. "She taught
herself how to fix razors,"
said Bill. Then, the business
grew and Bill decided to
spend more time in the store.
That time together, they say,
has been more enjoyable than
what a lot of other married

business partners experi-
ence. "I guess we're one of
the lucky ones. We get along
extremely well. We do have
our moments of course," said
Marge. "We're like night and
day. That's how we've built
our business," said Bill. And
they leave it all behind when
quitting time comes each day.

Gigi & Luca Pet Boutique 1825 NE 24th Street, Lighthouse Point- 954-784-8755

For the love of pets and a deep concern for abandoned animals, Gigi & Luca

Pet Boutique has found a niche and safe haven for all of them at their shop

Elizabeth Correa was
inspired to open
her Pet Boutique in
Lighthouse Point when she
saw a "For Rent' sign next to
her groomer's shop.
"I went home thinking
"what a lovely place to start
my own little pet boutique"
since I was always looking
for unique accessories for our
dogs and could not find any-
thing like that in my neighbor-
hood. "
With the help of her mother,
Belkis, and husband with
whom she had been in busi-
ness with for 15 years, she ap-
proached them with the idea.
"I could have never imag-
ined how excited they would
be. My mother's business
advice, who passed away 2
years after we opened, was
priceless. We spent months
doing market research, and
after we were convinced it
could work, she encouraged
me to rent two spaces, quot-
ing her ... if it is going to
be a good business, it will be
great with two spaces, so go
ahead and do it.' How I miss
her now!"
The three had formerly
owned three jewelry business-
es in Puerto Rico. They sold
all three in 1999 and moved to

the States in 2000.
It was time to start some-
thing new. And it was natural
for Elizabeth to focus her
business on pets as she and
her family were dog lovers.
The new business, Gigi &
Luca' s was aptly named after
their two pets Gigi, an Eng-
lish Bulldog, 11, and Luca, a
Yorkshire Terrier, 7.
The Shoppes of Lighthouse
Point was also the perfect
place with so many pet own-
ers. Elizabeth decided that an
upscale community would
want an upscale pet accessory
store, and off they went.
Later, Gigi & Luca's added
natural pet foods for cats and
dogs that are rarely found in

other places: salmon, bison
and sweet potato mixtures
of other natural ingredients
began to turn hundreds of pets
into healthy diners.
"But we wanted everyone
to feel welcome here," says
Elizabeth. "We have accesso-
ries that meet the budgets for
all of our customers."
Another later addition for
Gigi & Luca' s was also a
natural one; they decided to
sell puppies. Elizabeth made
it a point to find good breed-
ers who did not run "puppy
mills." And having located a
selected number of breeders,
the small pups became part of
this boutique.
"The greatest moments have

been when we started selling
puppies. What joy it is to see
these babies placed in new
loving homes, to be able to
provide our customers with
this kind of unconditional love
and later on become part of
their extended family by help-
ing them care for them and
provide the best nutrition," she
Recently, the pups from
breeders got some new com-
panions from no-kill rescue
groups. Now dog lovers can
find puppies to fit their needs,
and some customers have
adopted rescue babies to live
alongside their pure-bred
The rescue groups all adop-
tion fees to help carry on their
And if there is an event
that has anything to do with
animals, Gigi & Luca's will
most likely be on hand to help
support the event.
"We have been helping
the City of Lighthouse Point
with their annual Dog Day
in the Park by organizing pet
shows and contests to bring
the community' s pet owners
together for a good and fun
time," says Elizabeth.
Holding events to benefit the
local causes, like American
Cancer Society, supporting

Boy Scouts, donating pet ac-
cessories, food and more to so
many fundraisers being held in
the community are also part of
Gigi & Luca' s commitment to
the community.
"Once the economy started
slowing down, we started see-
ing so many pet owners sur-
rendering their dogs because
they could no longer afford
them. We decided to step
in and change our business
model to include pet rescue in
our store. We helped rescue
and have placed many dogs
over the past couple of years,"
she says.
And change is always on the
horizon at Gigi & Luca.
"In so many ways!" Eliza-
beth exclaims. "What started
as a cute pet boutique evolved
into a pet store where pet
owners could find pet ac-
cessories, healthy pet foods,
nutritious treats, holistic
supplements, expert advice on
any pet related issue, puppies
and rescue dogs.
It has been an amazing
ride, five years of wonderful
experiences, heartbreak when
a customer' s beloved com-
panion is sick or dies, great
friendships and having the
joy of becoming the trusted
neighborhood pet store!"

Gustavo and Marjorie at Deco Tile built their own reputation through the

designs that were born out of the their clients' inspiration for new looks

On Nov. 12, 1999
Deco Tile hosted
its grand opening
party after officially opening
its doors that summer.
Gustavo and Marjorie
Zubero shared a vision of
expanding Gus's installation
company near their home
while providing a showroom
for clients to visit.
With the support of our
landlord, Ivan J. Smith, we
decided on our current loca-
tion, and the transformation
of 3322 at the Rayvan Build-
ing began.
As our 11th year anniver-
sary approaches, it is with
great pride and a sigh of
relief that we look forward
to a celebration. Following
great success with opening
the first five years, Deco
Tile faced a series of adver-
sities starting with the Sept.
11 tragedy, followed by the
construction of the Oceans-
ide Plaza and of course, Hur-
ricane Wilma.
We actually sat and con-
templated closing the shop
on several occasions, but
with great determination and
faith in our reputation, we
pulled through and managed

to keep our doors open.
We have lived in East
Pompano Beach since 1988,
and we consider this our
hometown. Our boys were
born and are being raised
here. There is no other place
we would rather be.
It is a beautiful feeling
owning your own busi-
ness a mile from home on
the beach and catching that
glimpse of the ocean on your
way to work.
And it's a great feeling
crossing paths with satisfied
clients at Publix and local
Through the years, Deco
Tile eventually evolved to
even more than just flooring
and bath remodeling and has
successfully completed total
remodels in several of the
icon buildings on our beach
All of our service and
work is provided by the
same trade professionals
since our opening. We also
work with licensed and
insured plumbers and electri-
cians in our local area.
As we begin our second
decade in business, we no-
tice that old clients who had

put off interior work on their
units due to hurricane-related
assessments, are now walk-
ing in with old estimates we
are still honoring.

Investors buying beach
front properties are eager to
remodel outdated units.
We have had a great year
so far reminiscent of the
good old days, and we are

grateful for our blessings.

stallation, remember Deco

Frank H. Furman Insurance, 1314 E. Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach 954-943-5050

Frank H. Furman's endurance, patience and spirit bring success to his

insurance company and support to the city he loves, Pompano Beach

Frank H. Furman was
named Man of the
Year for Pompano
Beach in 2007 but to his
friends, family, clients and
his community, he is more
the Man of the Hour.
As a successful business-
man in the field of insur-
ance, Frank has invested

tance to organizations that
benefit the overall commu-

added to his belief that giv-
ing back was a gift.
He explains that in 1962,
a close friend allowed him
and his wife, Martha Jane,
to open an independent
"We opened our agency
on Atlantic Boulevard
rent free for one year. Our
friend allowed us to make
our dream a reality," says
In return, Frank has
served as a major sponsor to
community event that also
began as ideas, including
The Tiger Trail Festival,
Pompano Beach Fireworks
on July 4th, Yuletide
Parade, Seafood Festival,
Fishing Rodeo, Holiday
Boat Parade, Children in the
Arts Piano competition and
numerous others that have
grown to be part of the tap-
estry of Pompano Beach.
Those contributions were
the result of a young insur-
ance salesman who believed
in his product, stood behind
it and worked hard at doing
it every day.
Frank and Martha Jane
have been residents of
Pompano Beach for 54
years where they raised
their children, became ac-
tive in their church and are
proud that they are "part of
60 families [in the business]
where helping them prosper
has been a great reward."
They have faced obsta-
cles, the biggest one being
the "unstable insurance
market for homeowners
after Hurricane Andrew in
"We have a great staff,"
says Frank. "We specialize
in insuring homes, busi-
nesses, automobiles, boats
and life insurance products.
We also get pleasure out of
helping clients when they
have a claim. That is what
we are about."

Gold Coast Rent-All, 119 S. Federal Hwy., Pompano Beach 954-781-5160

Gold Coast Rent-All has been part of the growth, celebrations, projects and the

hurricane clean-ups since 1970 when John H. Holmes founded the store

t' s hard to tackle a big
project without stopping
at Gold Coast Rent-
All, 119 S. Federal Highway,
Pompano Beach. Since 1970,
when the late John H. Hol-
mes founded the store, most
people are familiar with the
slogan "We Rent Most Any-
Whether it's a wedding or
a large landscaping product,
chances are that John T. Hol-
mes, son of John H., has the
right piece of equipment to
make that project happen.
Here's how it all happened.
John H. Holmes had re-
tired from the Air Force as
a decorated officer before
returning to his home town,
Des Moines, to open an auto
After building a successful
dealership, John H. retired
again-this time to move his
family to the warm South
Florida climate he found in
Pompano Beach.
But it wasn't long before he
became bored with retirement
and looked around for a new
business venture.
At the time building proj-
ects were booming and many
new people were moving into
homes in the area.

The sign says "Rent-All' but to
thousands of people it reads "We
can Help." [Below] Southeast Sec-
ond Street and Federal Highway as
construction of Gold Coast Rent-All
is underway.

John H. realized there was a
need for a tool and equipment
rental business in the area that
could meet the needs of both
contractors and homeowners.
With that need and vision in
mind, he bought the property
on Federal Highway and had
a structure built that would
meet the unique needs of a
rental business-that is a busi-
ness that is a combination of

warehouse and rental space.
It is a tribute to his vision that
the business continues today
in the same location.
While the business plan was
the brainchild of John H., his
wife Marge kept the business
books for the first years. His
son, John T., current owner,
worked at the store through
high school and then again
for a time after college before

eventually going into the busi-
The mission and business
slogan of GCR is "We rent
most Anl hlling'" GCR prides
itself on having a complete
inventory of tools and equip-
ment to meet the needs of both
contractors and homeowners.
Whether the project is large
or small, GCR has a tool to
make the job easier.

In addition, GCR is aware
of the community it serves.
With many tourists and snow
birds as well as a location
that just invited visitors, GCR
is Pompano Beach's answer
when extra beds, cribs and
high chairs are needed.
GCR has the best in party
goods rentals, chairs, chafing
dishes and more. GCR can
help the homeowner get ready
for a casual birthday party or
an annual boat parade.
GCR has been in business
through major hurricanes,
including Andrew and Wilma.
As soon as these hurricanes
passed, GCR was open for
business, running on gen-
erators and able to provide
tools and equipment to help
our community clean up and
John T. has seen much
expansion since those early
boom days of Pompano
Beach, and he has seen Gold
Coast Rent-All grow along
with the city itself.
He continues to update the
business with more equip-
ment. GCR now rents larger

station at NE 29 Street. The
move was beneficial in lots
of ways. The store is more
visible from the highway, it
is easier to drive in and out,
there is room for a drive thru

Sal said.
While some Dairy Queens
offer burgers, sandwiches
and fries, Sal kept to his
