Race gets
crowded in
Wilton Manors
for commission,

mayor seats
By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Wilton Manors Before the dead-
line hit at noon on Wednesday, 13
residents picked up candidate packets.
But only seven took the final step and
filed to run in this November's city
commission election.
For mayor, incumbent Gary Resnick
will run for reelection against former
commissioner Joe Angelo.
Resnick says there are a lot of issues
he's working on now that he feels he
needs to continue to address, including
fire contract negotiations with the City
of Fort Lauderdale.

Build-out of
Deerfield Park
dock remains
controversial
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach Two public dock
projects are being proposed for local
waterways at no cost to the city.
The first, improvements to the
Pioneer Park boat ramp, was approved
unanimously Tuesday night by the city
commission. The second, an additional
263-foot dock at Deerfield Island
Park, faces opposition.
Both projects are funded by grants
from Broward Boating Improvement
Program, or BBIP, and the Florida
Inland Navigational District, or FIND.

Budget survives first round; Fire fee cut for non-profits


By Judy Wilson The city's operating budget


PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach Con-
fronted by a roomful of
churchgoers, city commis-
sioners agreed to rescind the
notion that non-profit orga-
nizations must pay the city's
annual fire fee and then added
another $8 to a proposed
increase in the fee to make up
the $474,000 in lost revenue.

amounts, as much as $50,000,
staggered religious leaders
who came out two weeks ago
to protest the measure. It took
only a few minutes for city
commissioners to see it their
way. Later, Mayor Peggy No-
land said, "I feel the churches
and synagogues do a lot for
the community and its people.
Perhaps we need a little more
God in all of our lives."
The lost revenue has been
recovered by adding $8 to
an already proposed hike for
residential users of fire/rescue
services, from $135 to $143
per unit. The current year fee
is $99.
Tuesday night at the first
public hearing on the budget,
commissioners heard from

going up.
Said Mario Esposito, a 35-
year resident, "I don't care
how you do it (cut the bud-
get). We can't keep up this
pace."
Another said, "Our values
are down, our taxes are up.
Come election day, we can
fight city hall."
Mary Grabick, who said
"You' re breaking the backs
of the homeowners," also
made a suggestion. "Get
creative with your budget. My
husband can't get an occupa-
tional license here because he
has a mailbox address, so we
go to Pompano Beach for the
license."
Former Mayor Jean Robb
suggested rescinding the
pension plan for city commis-
sioners and charging busi-
nesses in town $5 dollars to


be given to the Historical So-
ciety, which had its $50,000
appropriation cut. She also
made a clarifying point for
those concerned about their
millage rate asking Finance
Director Hugh Dunkley how
much revenue one mil raised.
$4.9 million, Dunkley replied.
Commissioners also heard
from Little League baseball
and Packer Rattler football
coaches who asked that their
city funds not be cut.
Historical Society Direc-
tor Carolyn Morris asked for
transitional budget cuts of
$25,000, $15,000 and $10,000
rather than the full amount.
In the end, the commis-
sion made no changes to the
administration's fiscal plan.
"We can't spend more mon-
ey," Commissioner Bill Ganz
said.
Vice Mayor Joe Miller said,
"What I hear is 'don't cut the
budget and don't raise taxes.'
We spent hours and hours on
this. Public safety is the vast
majority of our budget. You
want less of that? Elected
officials don't want to raise
taxes. We're trying to navigate
through this economy."

Residents organize against proposed hotel location in Wilton Manors


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
Wilton Manors It may
be a few months before city
commissioners vote on the
new plans and location for
the G Resorts, a proposed
hotel/timeshare development.
But former mayor John Fiore
and many of his neighbors are
already organizing against a
project they see as a threat to
their property values and their
peace and quiet.
Fiore and 160 residents
met recently to oppose the
new proposed location The
Center for Spiritual Living,
located at the corner of North-
east 15 Street and Northeast
26 Street.
"I care about my neighbor-
hood. I'm so glad you' re here
because you care about your
neighborhood too," said Fiore,
who described the project as
looking like a prison on three
sides.
Fiore urged attendees to
sign a petition and to attend
the next planning and zoning
board meeting, scheduled for
Oct. 4. If planning and zoning
board members reject the pro-
posal, developers can appeal
to the commission.
At least one official has al-
ready voiced opposition. "You
have to be a complete idiot
to vote for this," said Com-


missioner Scott Newton, who
attended the meeting. Newton,
who voted with the rest of the
commission to approve the G
Resorts at its previous loca-
tion, says he's not against the
hotel just the location. "It's
just a ridiculous place to have
it."
Current zoning allows for
community facility while the
land-use is commercial.
Other residents at the meet-


ing said they also liked the
idea of having a hotel some-
where in the city, just not in
their neighborhood. "It's like
walking out your back door
and seeing a nuclear plant.
There are places for nuclear
plants and there aren't," said
resident Patrick Erwin.
The Pelican was not able to
reach G Resorts for comment
but Dean Trantalis, the attor-
ney representing the hotel, has


said in the past that once resi-
dents see plans for the hotel
they "will be comfortable but
also encouraged that it will be
next to their property."
No residents spoke in favor
of the hotel at the first meet-
ing but three people were
denied from participating in
the Sept. 2 "Save East Wilton
Manors" meeting. Fiore says
the meeting was private and
only for people in opposition


to the hotel. "If they wouldn't
sign the petition we didn't let
them in. We were discussing
our own strategies."
Fiore also suggested over-
riding the commission if it
does approve the develop-
ment. The city charter allows
voters to hold a special elec-
tion regarding any ordinance
passed by commissioners.
"We can force them to stop.

In the year since it first opened, a lot
of singles and couples have chosen to
move in and call Vizcaya home.
The boutique assisted-living rental
residence at 1621 N. Ocean Blvd. is in
a prime location, across the street from
the ocean with the Intracoastal Water-
way just behind its parking lot, offer-
ing many of the rooms water views.
"Our residents enjoy beach outings
and boat watching as they walk along
the intracoastal," says Suzy Mautner,
marketing director. "Our Activities
director, Marily Ceccon, keeps them
busy with exercise, bingo, arts and
crafts, and monthly candlelight din-
ners with the menu chosen by resi-
dents.
And parties. We just had a big one
last Sunday for Florence Miller whom
we call Nana. It was her 100th birth-
day. There was a Caribbean band, ca-
tered dinner for residents, and family
who came from all over the country to
help Nana celebrate."
AFL licensed by Florida Agency for
Healthcare Administration, Vizcaya
can provide up to 95 residents semi
and private, handsomely decorated
and furnished rooms.
Owner Williams says, "We have
ADA or American Disability Act, ap-
proved rooms with roll-in showers and
all of our bathrooms have ADA toilets,
grab bars, and other necessary equip-
ment."
Mautner stresses that this is a Med-
icaid approved facility, saying, "We
help new residents apply for financial
benefits through Medicaid and the
V.A. Half of our men and women are
veterans who are now receiving ben-
efits given only to those needing an
assisted living facility such as ours."

Pompano Beach CRA plan will

create beauty, economic growth

and reasons to come to Pompano

This week, Community Redevelopment Agency, or CRA, representatives
unveiled a series of drawings depicting a new town that may not have ever been
imagined except by those who have loosed the chains of the past.
For an hour, we escaped reality with rapt expectancy as the screen filled with
Pompano Downtown, and we cheer the event.
Property owners on Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard and Flagler Street in
the original Pompano Downtown are most likely joining us in the elation of pos-
sibility.
Here is what we saw.
A tree-lined MLK Boulevard with wide paved sidewalks that encourages
walking, shopping, dining and entertainment.
At Dixie Highway, the road that once demarcated racial division in
Pompano and most cities in South Florida, a huge paved crossing to Flagler for
everyone to continue the experience.
And finally a walk across Atlantic Boulevard, following the pavers to the
city's newest regional library planned as a civic center where the arts will be
honored from music to ballet to theater.
With all of our imagination, we could not have envisioned what we saw this
week at the E. Pat Larkin's Civic Center. For years, the city has purchased land
in Northwest Pompano Beach to recreate open space that could be forested and
landscaped for public enjoyment.
This is the CRA at work. Balance that with the CRA at work at the beach,
and even the most cynical will see this city in a broader light and on the cusp of
prosperity.
The CRA, under he guidance of RMA's Kim Briesemeister and Chris Brown,
co-executive directors of the Pompano Beach CRA, action on redevelopment in
this city is on the move.
Funding for MLK infrastructure is in the bank, and as property owners on
MLK begin to take advantage of a $20,000 grant for property improvement,
change will become reality soon.
The work on sidewalks, pavers, round-a-bouts and landscaping is expected to
start within six months.
The next CRA meeting is on Sept. 21 at city hall. Call 954-786-4601.


The Jewish High Holy Days, 2010


By Rabbi David Hartley Mark
THE JEWISH CENTER AT TEMPLE SHOLOM, POMPANO BEACH


Being Jewish means that we observe two calendars: the secular one, with its
midwinter conclusion and beginning, and the Jewish reckoning, with an early-
autumn start.
When I lived in New Hampshire, there was a clear distinction to the fall:
leaves turning, pumpkins ripening, and feeling a special chill in the air. Here in
South Florida, we must imagine the seasons' changing-although our climate
does resemble certain parts of Israel, which may partially explain why Jewish
Floridians care so much about the Jewish State.
Just as Passover is the Jewish holiday with the strongest home observance, so
are Rosh Hashana (New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) the holi-
days which boast the greatest temple attendance for Jews the world over.
Why?
Perhaps because of their central metaphor, that of God judging all Creation,
every living thing on this earth, as well as all human beings. We Jews have a
weighty responsibility, therefore, as we crowd into our synagogues: we must
humbly ask the Almighty for a good year, not only for ourselves and our fami-
lies, but for our neighbors all over the world. Seen in this light, the old saw
becomes true: humanity has no strangers, only friends we haven't yet met.
There is a rabbinic controversy over whether Rosh Hashana is joyous or sol-
emn, but joy seems to rule the day.
The metaphor of sweetness finds its way into our traditional foods, with
apples dipped in honey, challote (festive egg bread) baked with sweet raisins
rather than served plain, and honey cake in abundance. In years past, many
Jews had the custom of serving the head of a fish or some other kosher animal,
thereby symbolically suggesting that God make our people "the head, rather
than the tail," but this custom, thankfully, has ebbed away.
On the afternoon of the first day (Thursday, Sept. 9, this year), we gathered at
the temple at 5 p.m. and walked to the nearest body of water, carrying pieces of
stale bread.
We read prayers which spoke about how God will toss our sins into the depths
of the sea, and throw the bread into the water-an age-old custom known as
Tashlich, "Throwing."
As for synagogue observance, the shofar, or ram's horn, is the central symbol.
Since we have no sound recordings as to how it was actually played, we use
three different blasts: tekeeah, the long, single blast; shevarim, the three-sound
blast, and teruah, the nine-shortest-blasts. There are many reasons for blowing
shofar, among them the reminder that, when God began to create the universe,
an angel welcomed the heavenly Sovereign in the manner of an earthly king,
with trumpet-sounds.
When the Israelites gathered at Mount Sinai to receive the Torah, an angel
blew a shofar. And finally, when Messiah comes, the Archangel Gabriel will
blow a shofar to awaken the righteous dead to eternal spiritual life.
May you and yours enjoy a most happy, sweet, and prosperous year, 5771!




The Pelican staff went above and

beyond with its historical issue
Bravo to Publisher Anne Hanby Siren, Managing Editor Michael d'Oliveira
and other staff members for the wonderful 2010 Historical Issue of The Pelican
newspaper which came out on Sept. 3.
The Pelican team has performed an important public service by profil-
ing the histories of the cities and prominent businesses in northeast Broward
County. This edition of your modest newspaper is educational and entertaining
- and deserving of some kind of award in the print media field.
Because The Pelican is free to the public, I hope its readers will take note and
patronize those businesses who advertise in the newspaper so that it may con-
tinue to inform us at the local level.

With Appreciation,
Paul A. Kuta

Wilton

Manors races
Continued from page 1
"I have a good record of
moving the city forward and
working on the issues that are
important to Wilton Manors,"
said Resnick.
Angelo says he's running
to address safety, homes,
businesses and the future of
the city. "I' ve been actively
involved in Wilton Manors
since 1998, and I've champi-
oned causes to improve our
community, unite our commu-
nity and advance our com-
munity."
If elected, Angelo would be
the city's first African Ameri-
can mayor.
For the two open four-year
seats, Steve Zollo is chal-
lenging Commissioners Ted
Galatis and Scott Newton.
The two candidates with the
most votes will take the two
seats.
Zollo said that with his
creativity, vision and years
of experience on city boards,
including the budget review
committee, he has a lot to
offer, adding that it's time for
some new people to serve.
"It seems like the city com-
mission has been attempting
to address problems and never
solving them."
Like Resnick, Galatis says
he also sees the need to run
again to work on the city's
problems and challenges.
"Wilton Manors is a desir-
able place to live and work
due to its close proximity
to other metropolitan areas.
Smart planning and forward
thinking will be necessary to
the continued success of our
city. I offer mature leadership


based upon sound civic and
professional experience," said
Galatis.
Newton says he's worked
to lessen the burden on tax
payers and still provide qual-
ity city services and he's one
of the only commissioners
who looks out for every dollar
spent by the city. "It's our tax
dollars, and I want to know
where they're going."
For the two-year slot,
created when Vice Mayor
Justin Flippen resigned to run
against Dist. 92 Rep. Gwyn
Clarke-Reed, Celeste Ellich
will run against former com-
missioner Julie Carson to see
who will serve out Flippen's
term; Flippen's resignation
takes effect in November.
Zollo and Ellich ran unsuc-
cessfully for commission in
2008, losing to Commissioner
Tom Green and Flippen.
Green is the only city official
not up for re-election. Carson
was appointed as an interim
commissioner in 2008 and
ran unsuccessfully against
Newton in a special election
in 2009.
Ellich says one of the things
she wants to do is computer-
ize the building department
and permitting process, mak-
ing them more efficient.
Carson says she's commit-
ted to the city and regularly
attends commission meetings
and is a committed part of the
community, citing her service
as vice president of the East
Neighborhood Association.
"Over the past two-and-
a-half years I have attended
more city commission meet-
ings than the mayor or any
of the commissioners," said
Carson. "I know that I have
the skills to bring about a bet-
ter future for the city."

West CRA proposes
new policy for funding

Pompano Beach With a
total funding of $25,000 for
one given year, the West CRA
advisory board members will
ask the CRA board to approve
a limit its funding of local
events to $1,250 for festivals
or other events planned for the
West CRA area.
Grant applications will be
available on a first come, first

tion will require that grantees
must demonstrate how the
event will "promote economic
development" within the
CRA, and the event must take
place within the CRA area.
Floyd Johnson, director of the
Northwest CRA, said the pol-
icy will encourage event plan-

This fall the Doreen Gauth-

with activity. Students are

students are volunteering their
time to earn school service
hours. There will be in-house


art shows, a writers group
and story hours for children.
Gauthier says, "We will be
offering some short courses
between Christmas and
Easter. Our staff is kept busy
meeting the demands for e-
government assistance for job

applications. We even have
templates for resume creation
and updating."
In a brochure entitled, Tax-
payer Return on Investment
in Florida Public Libraries,
interesting facts come to light.
The claim is made and sub-
stantiated that for every tax
dollar received, Florida public
libraries in 2008 provided
$8.32 in value. Visits to public
libraries increased over seven
percent, while funding in-
creased less that one percent.


Clearly tax payers are getting
a big bang for their buck.

Famous chefs step into Florida Builder Appliances' kitchens in

Pompano Beach to help raise funds for Feeding South Florida


By Mike d'Oliveira and
Malcolm McClintock
PELICAN WRITERS
Feeding South Florida host-
ed some prestigious chefs last
month at the Florida Builder
Appliances, 1742 West Atlan-
tic Blvd., Pompano Beach, to
make excellent use of a few of
the company's model kitchens
by demonstrating their skills.
The event, a fundraiser for
Feeding South Florida, raised
over $2,400 that will be used
to help get food to residents
in Broward, Miami-Dade and
Palm Beach counties.
Last year, Feeding South
Florida distributed 24 mil-
lion pounds of food to help
alleviate the tri-county hunger
problem.
"It was a huge success. We
really appreciate them," said
Anthea Pennant, Feeding
South Florida's director of
development.
"It's not just about money.
It's about the awareness
factor. This event lets the

Vizcaya
Continued from page 4
boasts a lushly landscaped
central courtyard with com-
fortable seating for the out-
door pleasure of the residents.
The first floor also offers
a very large activities room,
dining room, kitchen and
offices. Residents can bring
their own favorite art work
and furnishings to personalize
their new quarters. Those who
live in private rooms can have
a small pet if he or she can
provide care for them.
"Our staff is warm, loving
and bilingual," Mautner says.
"Our residents have access to
all of the amenities of daily
living including personalized
services and assistance from
CNAs, or Certified Nurse
Assistants, with bathing,
dressing, grooming, shower-
ing, shaving etc. Services in-
clude private and semi-private
rooms, laundry, three meals
and snacks daily and medi-
cation management on site.


Appointments can be made
for on-site private nurses,
x-rays, blood work and other
medical tests. Appointments
with doctors, pharmacies,
dentists, home health, physi-
cal and occupational therapy,
psychotherapy, podiatry, and
ophthalmologists are available
as needed.
Barbara Lester says, "I have
the distinction of being the
first resident here. I moved
in right after Vizcaya opened
and I' m glad that I chose this
place. My experience has
been good. It's a relief not
to have to think about cook-
ing, marketing, laundry and
all of those homemaker jobs.
There's always someone to
remind me to take my medica-
tions at the right time. I love
my room and I'm enjoying
the friends I've made here.
My favorite activity is paint-
ing during our arts and crafts
time."
Ed Shedler, who lived inde-
pendently in the area for 30
years, has been a resident of
Vizcaya for almost a year. He


says, "Since my stroke, I lived
in four other assisted living
facilities before coming here.
This is the best one. They've
helped me with my Medicaid.
I think the food and the activi-
ties are also better than those
in other places."
A resident strolled past,
wearing a red hat which
reminded Mautner to add a
few more bits of information.
"Since we opened we have a
V.A. Club, a Red Hat group,
and live entertainment on a
regular schedule. We also
hold Christian and Shabbat
services, as well as celebra-
tion of all birthdays and major
holidays like Christmas,
Chanukah, Easter, Passover,
Valentine's Day and more.
Marily keeps the residents
busy all day. She takes them
shopping, to the beach and
plans barbecue parties in our
lovely courtyard."

Deerfield

Park dock
Continued from page 1
Broward County, owner and
manager of Deerfield Island
Park, 50 wooded acres north
of Hillsboro Boulevard at the
confluence of the Hillsboro
Canal and the Intracoastal
Waterway, is seeking a vari-
ance from the city to place the
dock in deeper water, which
they claim will protect sea
grasses.
County Parks and Recre-
ation Director Dan West said
his office has been working
on making the island more ac-
cessible to boaters since 2004.
All the agencies involved
have approved the plan West
said. The dock, wrapping
around the southeast corner
of the island and running
alongside both the Intracoastal
and the Hillsboro Canal, is
designed for small boats and
only about eight at a time. Al-
ready in place in the Hillsboro
Canal are seven, small-boat
slips.
"Deerfield Island Park is a
neat project," West said. "In
Broward, there are only a few
such sites with boater access."
But residents of the Hill-
sboro Cove Condominium
which overlooks the park have
concerns. They fear the island
will become a "hang out" in
the words of condominium
president Sheila Pascar.
"It's already very con-
gested there with boat traffic.
There is a strong current and
boats line up waiting for the
bridge." Pascar said since the
fence has been removed from
the old Riverview Restaurant
property, fisherman line up
on the seawall, their lines
interfering with boats in the
Hillsboro Canal. "There is no
control there. There is never a
marine patrol officer around.
They are all at the Hillsboro
Inlet."
Vice Mayor Joe Miller,
who represents the area, said
this week he doesn't see the
advantage of adding docks
to the site. He said he has
received half a dozen emails
protesting the plan. "As of
right now, unless someone


makes a big case, I don't see
the big advantage. We already
have docks there. I have never
noticed them filling up,"
Miller said.
The county has obtained
$440,000 in grants from
FIND and the BBIP and has
the approvals from the South
Florida Water Management
District, the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Regulation, the US Army
Corps of Engineers and the
Broward County Environmen-
tal and Growth Management
Office. Manatees, sea grass
and navigational issues were
considered.
The additional dock space
will make the island a destina-
tion, West said. "There is a
lot of history there, he said
speaking of the island's color-
ful past reputedly dating to
Al Capone's days. "This is a
positive project."
"This island is supposed to
be for nature," Pascar said.
"Now [with the docks] it will
be totally different, not what it
was supposed to be."
The county is scheduled
to ask for the variance at the
September 21 city commis-
sion meeting.
The Pioneer Park boat
ramp improvements are being
paid for with $200,000 in
BBIP money and a hoped-for
matching grant from FIND.


G Resorts


Continued from page 3
It's never been done in the
history of the city but it can
be done."
G Resorts' executives previ-
ously tried to obtain the Yawt
property, the city's last trailer
park, located on Northeast 24
Street next to Colohatchee
Park, but say they got tired of
waiting for owners to sell and
decided to build at the new
location.
Previous plans on the old
site, an area of about six acres,
included 35 hotel rooms, 137
timeshares and space for res-
taurant, retail, a banquet hall
and 358 parking spaces. New
plans, on the four-acre church
property, include 87 hotel
rooms, 26 timeshare units,
space for retail, a banquet
hall, a theater and 525 parking
spaces [487 of which will be
valet].
Residents also expressed
their worry about traffic flow
in and out of the area and the
affect the hotel would have on
their property values. Accord-
ing to a study by McMahon
Transportation Engineers &
Planners, the hotel would not
adversely impact the level of
traffic around the hotel.

"You had three viable

Contract goes to
Tenex for Floranada
improvements
Commissioners
unanimously approved
awarding a bid for a storm
water improvement project
in the Floranada Business
District to Tenex Enterprises,
Inc. The bid was for $893,955
for project construction and
an additional $50,000 for
contingency purposes.
The scope of work
includes installing Biscayne
Aquifer Wells so pre-treated
storm water goes to a
confining layer that prevents
contaminating the aquifer.
The design also adds more
ex filtration trenches to the
area, installs two storm water
pump stations and drainage
force mains that connect to
aquifer wells centrally located
in the Floranada Business
District. A third aquifer well
will be installed at the corner
of Northeast Sixth Terrace and
Prospect Road.
This affected area is
bordered on the east by the
Florida East Coast Railroad,
on the west by North Dixie
Highway, on the north by
Northeast 45 Street and the
south by Northeast 42 Street
Firefighters agree on
contract
Commissioners OK'd
a resolution approving
the collective bargaining
agreement between the
city and Metro Broward
Professional Firefighters
Local 3080. The Firefighters
Local 3080 approved the
two-year-contract, effective
through Sept. 30, 2012,
on Aug. 16. Among the
highlights: A wage freeze is in
effect through Sept. 20, 2011.
According to the contract,
in the event of a reduction in
force, employees will be laid
off in the inverse order of
their departmental seniority.
Any employee who is to be
laid off who has advanced

at 4201 Ocean Drive. The
chamber has been helping to
fund the Welcome Center,
as funds the town provided
for the center declined in
recent years from $35,000
annually to $28,000 and then
"because of politics" went
down to $20,000, Paul Novak,
chamber president, told
commissioners. As a result,
the chamber had to eliminate
a lot of advertising.
The chamber employs
Judy Swaggerty as executive
director. Novak said her job
is to run the Chamber of
Commerce, but she is now
running both the chamber and
the Welcome Center.
"It behooves us to have a
Welcome Center well-staffed,
to have a full-time employee
and volunteers," Novak said.
"Volunteers are great. They do
a good job, and we appreciate
what they do. But if they want
to go on vacation, there's not
much we can do about it. We
can't ride herd on volunteers.
"The Welcome Center is
very important to this town.
We give all the help we can,
and we try to keep tourists
in town," Novak continued.
"They spend money at our
businesses, and one hand
washes the other. It's difficult
to run the center with so few,"
he said, lobbying for $55,000
in funding. "That would
put us in a position to run it
properly."
"Are we just a sleepy
little town or are we a resort
destination?" asked Diane
Boutin, general manager
of the Windjammer Resort.
"$55,000 in an $11 million
budget is a miniscule amount
that's far reaching," Boutin
said.
"We're going through
hard economic times," said
Commissioner Chris Vincent.
"What can we do to brand this
town differently, to get people
to come here rather than
somewhere else. The $55,000
is in our [proposed] budget
already. It may be the key,
the catalyst. I'm in favor of
the $55,000. Let's move this
forward," he said.
Commissioner Birute
Ann Clottey said there's
no question the chamber is
important. But if Broward
County provides additional
funding for the Welcome
Center, would that amount be
deducted from what the town
is being asked to provide? she
wondered.
Novak said later there was
no guarantee Broward would
come up with another $10,000
for the center as he has in the

Pompano Beach-Lighthouse Rotarians collect
school supplies for Pompano Beach students


SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
At the start of the school
year, stories are published that
schools are underfunded and
that teachers will be spending
their own money for school
supplies for some children
who do not have the necessary
monies to buy them.
This year the Pompano
Beach-Lighthouse Point
Rotary Club is helping two
schools and 1,364 elementary
students in Pompano Beach.
The club is small with
limited funds but with smart
shopping by chair Jack Rosen
and his committee they
amassed 92 backpacks, 104


fillers, 6 cases of copy paper,
184 folders, 208 packages
of crayons, 580 subject note
books, 2,490 pencils, 48
packages of glue sticks, 50
rulers, 14 packages of erasers
and 3 boxes of quart size zip
lock bags.
The estimated value is well
over $2,000.
Cresthaven Elementary
School Principal Joshua
Kisten has a student
population of 783. Kistenl
was overwhelmed when he
saw the supplies wheeled
by employees Essie Brown,
Julian Foreman and Jessie
Thomas assisting from
Sunshine Health Center


Drivers were Harry
Schwartz and Bill Zobus.
Charles Drew Elementary
School with a student
population of 581 students
was next on the list. When
Principal Angeline Flowers
and Assistant Principal Sally
Shiver saw the carts being
pushed by Carla Hart and
Thomas, words of thanks
were showered on the
Rotarians. This community
project is one of several the
Rotary Club performs in
Pompano Beach, Lighthouse
Point and Coconut Creek.

Water rates
Continued from page 1
up to a 49 percent rate
increase in September. Part
of that increase is due to a 23
percent increase in Pompano
Beach rates.
The town is served by two
suppliers, Pompano Beach
and Fort Lauderdale. But rates
from the two cities are not
equal.
"We have an issue with
the sewer fund. We aren't
charging what it's costing
us to pay Pompano Beach to
treat sewage," Hoffmann told
commissioners.
The town recently hired
Kathleen Margoles, a
consultant, to research sewer
billing issues.
Pompano Beach provides
the entire city with sewage
service. Pompano also sells
water to residents in the
north part of town while Fort
Lauderdale provides water
to residents in the south part
of town. South residents
also pay Fort Lauderdale for
their sewage bill, but Fort
Lauderdale neither treats nor
disposes of the water. The
money collected from the
south residents for sewage
treatment is transferred to
Pompano Beach.
Sewage rates in Pompano
Beach are higher than Fort
Lauderdale's rates.
In one condo, Margoles
cites, the Pompano Beach
bill is $5,341.50 and the
Fort Lauderdale water bill is
$3,070. The town pays the
difference of $2,271 monthly


or $27,252 annually to
Pompano Beach.
Pompano charges the town
a monthly fixed rate and a
usage rate per 1,000 gallons,
recalculated annually.
"It's obvious we need to
raise rates to reach parity
in different segments of the
community," Hoffmann said.
"Possibly, we need to talk to
Pompano Beach about a new
master sewer agreement to
cover all of Lauderdale-By-
The-Sea."
And a legal issue was raised
as to whether the town should
make an attempt to retrieve
the money from residents who
have been subsidized.
Commissioner Birute
Ann Clottey, said she didn't
think it was fair to go back
and assess people in the Sea
Ranch condos. "Is there some
legal responsibility [requiring
us] to get that money?" she
asked.
Susan Trevarthen, town
attorney, said the consultant's
report is "a look at the facts
of what happened. I'm not
prepared to give a legal
opinion. It's one of the issues
we can look at."
Vice Mayor Stuart Dodd
said the town should negotiate
with Pompano Beach and


bring everyone into the master
sewer agreement. "We need a
town-wide agreement for 20
years or so."
Mayor Roseann Minnet
said the town needs to find
out the facts "so we can move
forward and get this town
together."
"Over-all, we want a
solution rather than blame.
We don't know what we don't
know. It points to colossal
mismanagement by the town.
I have that in my head,"
Sasser emphasized. "Let's
figure out the baseline and
how to move forward. We
need to all be on the same
agreement. We need to go
forward with one rate for
the town, so the money goes
to LBTS for infrastructure
repairs," Commissioner Scot
Sasser said.
"Some information isn't
there," Minnet said. "That's
part of the mismanagement
happening. We're not going
to have that anymore as we
move forward," she said.
Margoles said Minnet was
correct, that some information
wasn't found. In her memo
to commissioners, Hoffmann
wrote that former town
manager Bob Baldwin and
former town attorney Jim

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation

Commission temporarily lifts ban on snook


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
After being off limits for
months, Snook will soon be
back on the menu for South
Florida anglers.
On Sept. 17 the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, or FWC,
will rescind their executive
order, prohibiting fisherman
from keeping any snook
they caught. The decision
was announced Sept.
2. "We're only doing it
temporarily. We're being
very precautions," said Lee
Schlesinger, FWC spokesman.
Snook will be off limits again
come Dec. 15.
Because of last winter's
cold snap, the FWC closed
snook season on Jan. 16. On
Aug. 5 they extended the
closure to Sept. 16.
The re-opened snook season
will only apply to the Atlantic
Ocean, Lake Okeechobee
and inland waters. For those
on the Gulf Coast, only
catch and release will still be
permitted. But the reprieve is
only temporary. Schlesinger
says the FWC has no plans to
put snook back on the menu
during the spring spawning
season. "It will still be chilly.
Early spawners need a little
more protection."
But cold weather concerns
are nothing new when it
comes to protecting snook
stocks.

Weekly Fishing Report: A

great weekend ahead

RJ Boyle
RJ BOYLE STUDIOS
Although the week has been relatively quiet for fishing,
it looks like the weather is going to stabilize and the fishing
will pick up over the weekend. Inshore fishing yielded a few
yellowtail and mutton snappers in 80 to 100 ft. of water. The
only real change was that the vermillion snappers moved in
solid on all of the near shore wrecks.
One thing about vermilions is that they are sweet to eat. They
are probably one of my favorite snappers to put on the grill.
The best way to catch these snappers is to fish the old school
chicken rig. A chicken rig is basically a three foot piece of 30-
pound monofilament with three size #1 circle hooks spread
along the length and a six-ounce sinker at the bottom. Squid or
really any cut bait will do the trick. Bon Appetit.
The offshore report centers around blackfin tunas and
skipjack tunas. There has been tons of football-sized tunas
from 10 to 20 miles offshore. My suggestion for catching these
tunas would be mini jets fished on fluorocarbon 60-pound. Fish
the lure a long way back into the clean water and push your
speed up to 10 knots. You will definitely get tight. When you
catch these tunas make sure you bleed them live. Take a knife
and pierce through the tuna under the pectoral fin all the way
through. Once you have done this all of the blood will leave the
fish and the fish will ultimately taste much better.
Wahoo seminar at RJ Boyle Studios
On Sept. 28, RJ Boyle will be hosting an instructional
seminar on how to target wahoo. Boyle will go into catching
techniques for local fish and Bahamian fish. Several world
class captains will attend and give their techniques as well.
Space is very limited and we can only take the first 75 people.
If you are interested in attending please call or sign up at the
store. Cost is $20 per head and refreshments will be served.
Call RJ Boyle at RJ Boyle Studios, 5040 N. Federal Hwy. in
Lighthouse Point, with your latest fishing stories. 954-420-

LBTS Center
Continued from page 16
past. "It was a windfall when
we got it," Novak said.
Vice Mayor Stuart
Dodd said he was "a little
disappointed" in the funding
request. He understood the
$55,000 was to cover a
research project on how to
aggressively market the town,
not for running the Welcome
Center.
Dodd said the county has
provided $30,000 over two
years. "I think Broward needs
to be dragged into this. We
shouldn't be left carrying
the bag. I want the chamber
to take an active role in how
this town is marketed," Dodd
said. He asked for more of
a breakdown on how the
$35,000 is to be spent.
In response to questions,
Connie Hoffmann, interim
town manager, said if the
$55,000 is approved, the total
funding for the chamber/
welcome center the town
provides is $87,000, including
$18,000 for the building and
$14,000 for a town employee.
Mayor Roseann Minnet said
she's a proponent of both the
chamber and the Welcome
Center. But she added, "I want
some sort of business plan,
so we can take this visitors'
center/chamber to the next
level."
Minnet had concerns about


where the investment is.
"We need to be diligent to
taxpayers and make sure they
feel they are getting a return
on equity," she said. She
wasn't ready to spend money
on a full-time employee.
Instead, she asked for more
information to understand
what the visitors' center will
do for the town for $55,000.
"I don't understand what
the higher level is you people
are looking at," a clearly
exasperated Novak said.
"We're a small chamber of
commerce. Mayor, you were a
director. You should be pretty
aware of what the Welcome
Center does and what the
chamber does.
"If you want to elevate to
a Fort Lauderdale Chamber,
you better find us a new
building, hire four people,
find $250,000. We can only
get so many members in this
town and across the bridge.
You want a plan? It's a pretty
simple operation. I don't
know what you want us to
do."
Minnet repeated that she
wants to see a business plan
that includes what the visitors'
center and chamber are doing.
"I don't think that's too much
to ask for. That's it. We need
a better definition of what's
being supplied."
"See the conundrum I've
been put in?" Sasser asked.
"The chamber clearly wanted


* Beginners
* Companies
* Start-Ups
" Broadband
* Wireless networking
* E-mail
* Internet
* e-Bay
*Apple
* Real Estate


us to fund the Welcome
Center. Are there some things
you want from the chamber?
I want clear direction," Sasser
said.
Minnet said until the
commission makes decisions
about the millage rate, and
more possible budget cuts, she


couldn't approve more funds
for the Welcome Center.
"As long as I leave here
tonight knowing exactly what
I'm supposed to do, I can do
it," Sasser said.
"Now you know what it's
like to be town manager,"
Hoffmann quipped.

can produce up to 825,000
eggs per batch, with several
batches over the length of

Larger females can produce
up to four million per batch.
Less than one percent of
snook eggs become mature
adults. Adult females live


about 21 years and grow to
lengths of 48 inches. Males
live about 15 years and can
reach up to 39 inches.
