Taxes up in

Wilton Manors

to cover shortfall
By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF
wilton iwanors City commission-
ers say any more cuts in the budget
will mean cuts to basic services.
So, facing an $846,000 budget short-
fall, they unanimously voted Monday
to raise the operating millage rate to
6.0855, an increase of 0.2855 mills
from the current 5.8000 rate.
That, combined with the debt service
millage rates, 0.2654 for the 1999
parks bond and 0.4974 for the 2008
city hall bond, brings the entire pro-
posed millage to 6.8483. A final public

Town wants

COmpetitive

bids for garbage

service
By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Hillsboro Beach Despite a con-
tract that contains a spiff for the sum-
meT months and "impeccable service,"
commissioners have voted to get bids
for garbage service. The current three-
year contract with Waste Management
is coming to an end and the company
which has serviced the town for years
is willing to do the work for the same
$277,000 it cost in 2009-10.
There is also the chance the contract
will be lowered by $75,000 when an
incinerator bond sunsets, Commis-
sioner Rhea Weiss said.
But her fellow commissioners were
unhappy with Weiss for not moving
forward to advertise for garbage col-
lection bids as they had voted at their
last meeting.

PELICAN INTERN
I am excited to write as the newest
intern at The Pelican.
So a little bit about me. I was born
in New York, but I don't think mov-
ing to Florida at age three classifies
me as an authentic New Yorker. I
definitely am a Floridian, 65 degrees
is below freezing.
My parents agree. Coming from El
Salvador and Haiti, they weren't too
fond of the cold either. So my par-
ents, my older brother and I moved
to the Sunshine State in 1997.
I'm a senior at Zion Lutheran
Christian School. I love Florida. I'm
president of my class. I am a die-
hard fan of movies and photography.

Pompano Beach Code enforce-
ment in Pompano Beach is very likely
going to leave the auspices of the
Broward Sheriff s Office, or BSO, and
wind up with a private vendor.
After reviewing responses from
three companies, commissioners rated
Calvin, Giordano & Associates, or
CGA, as the top ranked contender for
the job.
BSO did not respond to the bids.
Some commissioners took the non-re-
sponse as a message that BSO didn't
want the job.

preceded by a meeting with
the police union in the morn-

meeting in the afternoon,
commissioners examined
almost every line item in the

At the end of the five-

$300,000 had been cut from
operating and water funds gir-

But the big break is yet

employees also get fully-
funded pension and health
insurance benefits for them-
selves and their families. "I'd
like to see us slowly withdraw
our payment for the families,"
Bennett said. Pointing to sick
leave benefits he added, "It's
a bonus for showing up. It's
acceptable to be off five per-
cent of the time."
Commissioner Celinda
Sawtelle, who voted with
Bennett and Commissioner
Rhea M'eiss to freeze wages
said, "Because we don't
have the money to hire a city
manager, we have people in
positions of lesser responsibil-
ity. What is not assumed by

ers. I have an unbelievable
work load as a commissioner.

more cuts to new budget


ployee wages and benefits for
the new fiscal year, a say-
ings yet to be calculated by
Finance Director Elizabeth
Black. Said Lee Bennett, the
commissioner in charge of
finance, I\yi\ goal would be
a zero increase in ad valorem
taxes. The biggest obstacle is
the $100,000 hike in the fire
contract."
Deerfield Beach provides
fire/rescue service to Hills-
boro Beach and is raising the
fire fee for residential units by
$36. For Hillsboro Beach, the
increase is nearly $100,000
of the $800,000 contract.
Another new expense is
$100,000 budgeted for trucks
and patrol cars.

commissioners voted Monday
to take $474,000 from the un-
designated fund balance rather
than hike the fire rescue fee
another $8 per residential unit.
Their action brings the fee
back to the administration's
initial proposal that it be
raised from $99, where it has
stood for four years, to $135.
The shortfall in balancing
the budget occurred when
the commission reversed an
action taken last month to
remove the fee exemption for

PELICAN STAFF

Joe Balistreri is the kind of a guy
who makes a connection to new
people easily, and that's an attribute
for an entertainer.
A talented, outgoing and super
energetic man, he's earned a reputa-
tion for turning any occasion into an
unforgettable success. The Pelican
asked Balistreri why the co-owner
of a well known local business like
Balistreri Realtors, chooses to become
an entertainer.
He grins and replies, "I've devel-
oped this side vocation because I
love music and entertainment. I love
parties, weddings, events of all types
and I often found myself turning these
occasions into something special for
family and friends. I began to realize
how important entertainment is to an
occasion. Think about it. After cock-
tails and dinner, there's the whole rest
of the evening. How that long chunk
of time is handled makes all the dif-
ference in the world. It takes a profes-
sional to turn the rest of the evening
into a night to remember.'
Balistreri is now the professional
who can do that. He meets with the
client to discuss the party whether
it's a 35 person boutique wedding or
a huge public event like Halloween
Night in Lighthouse Point or a Pompa-
no Beach July Fourth with fireworks
and music on the beach for thousands.
"It's important to know what the cli-
ent hopes to see happen, and then it's
my challenge to make it happen," he
explains. \ly job is to read the crowd
and adapt to that audience. Some-
times the guests range in age from 8 to
80. I have 40,000 songs available and

Many of them have hired Joe

League of Women Voters offer

clarification of u coming ro osed

changes in Florida Constitution
Thanks to the work of the Florida League of Women Voters, The Pelican is
publishing the "Pro's" and "Con's" of the constitutional amendments voters will
approve or refuse on Nov. 2. We will publish one amendment every week.

Amendment #1 Repeal of public campaign financing
requirement
Ballot Summary: Proposing the repeal of the provision in the
State Constitution that requires public financing of campaigns of
candidates for elective statewide office who agree to campaign
spending himits.
Effect of Passage: Would repeal the public campaign financing requirement
in the Florida Constitution, (Article VI, Section 7, Fla. Const.)
Sponsor: The Florida Legislature
Background: Sixty-four percent of Florida voters approved using public
financing for campaigns in 1998, raising to constitutional status public financing
of statewide campaigns. Article VI, section 7 is implemented by statute which
establishes the voluntary campaign spending limits that candidates who accept
public financing must adhere to.
In 2005, the Florida legislature dramatically increased the spending limits by
more than 300 percent, distorting the original purpose of the public financing
system which was to hold down the cost of campaigns.
In 2010, those voluntary spending limits are $24.9 million in the gubernatorial
race and $12.5 million for other cabinet races. Candidates for governor and four
cabinet offices received a total of $11 million in public funds to finance cam-
paigns in the last statewide election in 2006. The Legislature could reduce the
spending limits but have thus far refused to do so.
To qualify for public funding, gubernatorial candidates also must raise at least
$150,000 from Florida residents. Other cabinet candidates must raise $100,000.
Candidates qualify for public financing if they loan themselves no more than
$25,000 and receive no more than $250,000 from a political party.
A Vote For Amendment #1 . .
*would end campaign financing that requires expenditure of substantial pub-
lic monies beginning in the 2014 election cycle.
would increase the influence of special interests in elections.
would reduce the number of candidates who can afford to run for office.
would eliminate what some believe is one of the most significant campaign
finance reforms in Florida history.
*would end limits on campaign spending that some believe infringe on the
First Amendment right to freedom of speech.
A Vote Against Amendment #1:
*would continue the present system of public campaign financing. would
continue to allow substantial public monies to be used to help finance the politi-
cal campaigns of candidates who qualify for public financing.

To the editor,
On Nov. 2, Floridians will vote on
a constitutional amendment that has
potentially devastating consequences
for the future of our neighborhoods,
towns and cities.
If passed, Amendment 4 would
subject all comprehensive land use
plans and amendments to a costly ref-
erendum process among local govern-
ments throughout the state.

Foster parents



8TO war d County
To the Editor,
In Florida each year, over 9,000
children are placed into foster care be-
cause they experience neglect or abuse
in their own homes. Their families are
in crisis and their parents are unable to
provide for their wellbeing.
Through my work with these young
people, I know how resilient they can
be. Foster children have an extraor-
dinary capacity to overcome many
challenges, but only if they have the
support of a caring adult in their lives.
What sets foster parents apart is their
amazing ability to love a foster child
like one of their own, regardless of
whether the child lives with them for a
month or for more than a year.
Foster parents have the challenging
task of providing an atmosphere that
helps a child heal and prepare to go
back home, if possible, or on to a new
permanent home.
See FOSTER PARENTS on page 10

There have been a number of
articles in the press recently about
chickens as pets.
The kids love them. They [hens
only] are quiet. You have fresh eggs.
The taxpayers won't have to pay for
a chicken park. There have been no
police reports of chickens attacking
anyone, and they don't bark all night.
The city allows three dogs per house-
hold and some have more. We have
cats running loose killing birds, but I
have never heard of a chicken killing
any birds. Chickens don't carry rabies.
How about a trial period?
What's to lose except children hav-
ing great pets.

To the editor,
With the economy in turmoil, many
people are losing their homes. For
many of those with larger pets, such
as Labrador Retrievers, even if they
could afford to care for them, many
have to move to smaller, rental type
facilities where larger dogs are not
allowed.
With many people not knowing
where to take them, many have been
abandoned in neighborhoods where
the owner probably hopes that some-
one will take them in and give them a
good home. These dogs usually end up
being taken to the local county Animal
Control. Others have been surrendered
there and some have even been left
inside abandoned homes where only
the lucky ones have been rescued.
Labrador Retriever Rescue of Flor-
ida has been finding new homes for
these wonderful dogs for the past 10
years. It is strictly a volunteer organi-
zation that survives on donations and
is made up of wonderful people who

To the editor,
The Dockside Galley Grille would
like to thank all our friends and
patrons for their loyal support and a
wonderful nine years.
Unfortunately, we regret that we no
longer have a lease. Our landlord did
not renew our lease. It is a very sad
situation indeed.
I also thank you for the overwhelm-
ing amount of affection and support
that we have seen these past few
weeks as the news got out. We truly
have been blessed by the people we
have come to know through this
restaurant. And in my heart I know we
will continue to be blessed!
Keep tuned in to The Pelican for
updates on a new location. In the
mean time we will truly miss you!

"The proposed millage
rate you're shooting for will
result in a 9 percent decline in
revenue," said Connie Hoff-
mann, interim town man-
ager. Proposed tax revenues
at the 3.990 rate would be
$6,736,225. At the present
rate, property taxes would
produce $6,889,555.


Property taxes fund less
than 50 percent of the town's
budget. Other fees such as
franchise and utility taxes
augment those funds. Park-
ing fees and permits produce
$720,000.
"The majority of property
owners will see some kind of
tax decrease but not all," said
Doug Haag, acting finance/
budget director. About two-
thirds of property owners are
non-homesteaded, and they
will see some type of de-
crease, he said.
Homeowners who have
been under the Save Our
Homes program since its in-


ception in 1992 in the Florida
Legislature have been under
a 3 percent cap in property
appraisals nearly 20 years.
These homeowners are most
likely to see a tax increase.
The final budget hearing is
set for 6 p.m. Sept. 27.Com-
missioner Scot Sasser asked
Hoffmann her confidence
level that they could get to
the 3.999 millage rate. "Why
not make it that tonight?" he
asked. Hoffmann responded
that a number of items are
still being grappled with,
primarily insurance -- health
insurance for employees and
property and liability insur-


ance. And she wants to see
what the county is doing with
the sheriff's budget to see if
costs will increase.
"We are relatively confident
we can do that (reduce the
millage), but I would hesitate
to confirm that tonight," she
said. About $153,000 still
needs to be cut to reach that
rate.
A request from the town's
chamber leaders was lowered
from $55,000 to $35,000.
They did ask for and receive
an additional $11,159 to fund
advertising programs.
Vice Mayor Stuart Dodd
said the chamber and the town
need to go to Broward County
and ask for money to keep
running the center.
Commissioners approved a
residential fire assessment of
$130. Commercial fees range
from $249 to $4,985 depend-
ing on square footage.
Commissioners approved
donations of $7,387 for the
Aging and Disability Re-
source Center; Women in
Distress, $2,000; Kids Vot-
ing Broward, $1,404; Family
Central, $551; Boy Scouts
of America, South Florida
Council, $1,100. The commis-
sion did not approve $2,000
for the Broward Coalition for
the Homeless since no one
from that agency came to the
meeting.

value and a tax increase.
Commissioners are short of
their goal to lower the rate to
last year's rate of 3.990, but
more number crunching needs
to take place for that.

contract. Recently the city
agreed to a four-year contract
for $38 million with BSO that
does not include $1.4 million
for code enforcement. CGA's
contract is $1.2 million.
BSO Code officer Bill
Santore said, "I think we need
to move very carefully. I have
been driving [code enforce-
ment] for eight years. I have
seen the improvement in
Cresthaven held under code
enforcement. To go some-
where else will cause serious
difficulty."
Robert Holmes added,
"What will this company pro-
vide that we don't have with
code enforcement? I don't
think that this is the time for


us to change code enforce-
ment. What do we gain for
outsourcing?"
According to George Keller,
vice president of CGA, one
advantage will be its software
program that automates a
citation form and prints the
document on the spot. "The
process works efficiently, and
it allows the company to track
and plan routes."
He added that code enforce-
ment based on complaints
is not as effective as CGA's
"proactive basis."
City staff will proceed with
contract negotiations with
CGA. The contract will come
back for commission approval
at a later date.

supported the ranking. "I
think we need to be working
with an organization and with
someone who wants to do the
job," said Dockswell. "As
far as I can tell BSO hasn't
invested in software, and they
chose not to respond. I want
to work with people who want
to do the job "
Dockswell had some op-
position from residents.
"I don't think this is the
time to be manipulating code
enforcement. No code en-
forcement will run smoothly.
Let's remain with BSO and
tighten things up," said Pom-
pano Beach resident George
Cuolahan.
"Right now we have a
contract with the sheriff and
that does not include code
enforcement, said Commis-
sion Charlotte Burrie. "Code
enforcement is broken and
needs to be fixed. Whether it
goes to BSO, outsourced or
go to the city -we need to fix
code enforcement.
Pompano Beach pays 1.4
million dollars to BSO for
code inspection. Thirteen in-
spectors and two administra-
tors oversee the department.
Under the proposed agree-
ment with CGA, the company
would have 10 code enforcers
and two administrators. The
agreement also calls for the
city to provide eight pickup
trucks for CGA's use.
For 10 years, the city has
outsourced code enforcement

local communities. They
establish the long-term vision
and needs of a community,
which affect future land us-
age, public services, housing
and environmental protection,
among other important facets
of community life.
As an advocate for smart
planning and sustainable
local economies throughout
our state, the Florida Chapter
of the American Planning
Association (APA Florida)
is deeply concerned about
the short-sighted decisions
Amendment 4 would produce.
Amendment 4 would allow
individual issues to trump
the long-term vision of the

stomplf nomle iue eto fit
short statements on a ballot.
It would open the door for
special-interest groups to
sway public opinion on the
issues that affect all of us.
And, it will pick the pockets
of taxpayers with hundreds
of costly elections at a time
when we are all struggling
against a snug economy. APA
Florida has outlined these and
other concerns at www.flori-
daplanning. org/hometown.
Amendment 4 is not the
answer for building stronger,
more sustainable communi-
ties. I urge you to join me in
voting "No" on Amendment 4
on Nov. 2 because Florida's
citizens and communities
deserve better.

Tivoli Preserve due

Deerfield Beach The city
has obtained a $50,000 state
grant to remove exotics and
other nuisance vegetation from
the Tivoli Preserve on SM' 10
Street. Landscape Architect
Harold Hoyte said native slash
pine will be planted to replace
the exotics. The preserve
is home to the gopher turtle
and other native plants and
wildlife and is open during
daylight hours.
Hoyte is also undertaking
a big project, an inventory
of all the trees in the city on
public property. So far he
and maintenance employee
Ulysses Barksdale have
counted 8,000 trees growing at
public facilities and in parks.

Now, they are counting the
trees in the public right of
way, "a big task" according
to Hoyte. The tree count is
being taken in order for the
city to get full reimbursement
from FEMA when hurricanes
destroy the landscape. "It


will also help with tree
maintenance schedules,"
Hoyte said. The inventory has
been a mission of his since
he was hired here two years
ago and is being paid for with
Florida Division of Forestry
grants.

hearing on the budget is
scheduled for Sept. 27.
For homeowners under
Save Our Homes, or SOH,
the average increase would
be $75.50. Homeowners not
covered by SOH would see an
overall decrease in ad valorem
taxes of $314.26.
To help balance the budget,
as required by state law,
commissioners cut funding
for future vehicles and almost
all the funding from capital
expenses. "This is the new
reality. This budget is as
lean as it can possiby get "
said City Alanager Joseph
Gallegos.
The city also denied city
employees longevity pay,

leave and a cost of living
adjustment. Employees are
also forced to take 40 hours of
unpaid leave. Commissioners
also gave themselves and the
city manager a pay cut
"We're all on furlough,
commission included," said
Commissioner Ted Galatis,
adding, "We've saved this
city hundreds of thousands
of dollars by switching to the
Florida Retirement System"
from the city pension system.
"We've cut capital the last
three or four years. If we keep
cutting capital, there won't
be any tools for employees
to use," said Commissioner
Scott Newton. "You don't
want a police car falling apart
when it's coming to your
house to save your life."
Mayor Gary Resnick
suggested the city should look
into more grant funding tO
help cover capital expenses.


"There are even grants for
vehicles," said Resnick.
Commissioner Tom Green
blamed the drop in property
values [13.52 percent in
Wilton Manors] for most of
the city's budget woes. "There
are people in Wilton Manors
who pay no property taxes,"
said Green, referring to condo
owners who aren't taxed
because their property has


been devalued too much.
But Joe Montrose, the only
resident who spoke at the
meeting, thinks the city isn't
doing everything it can.
Montrose pointed to a
March 2010 study by Fishkind
& Associates, an economic
and financial consulting
firm, that compared financial
and law enforcement
statistics in Broward County


municipalities to the national
average.
Montrose said the city
should look into getting rid
of its own police department
and find a cheaper alternative.
According to the report, cities
contracting for police services
experience per capital costs
that are 33 percent lower
than those communities that
provide their own police
protection. "Why aren't we
looking into that?" asked
Montrose.
Gallegos said that, while
maintaining its own police
department is expensive,
residents have expressed a
desire to keep it rather than
contract with an outside
agency. According to the
report, Wilton 1lanors has the
second highest per capital cost
vs. population in Broward
County, second to Hillsboro
Beach. Wilton Manors also
has the lowest per capital
vs. population costs for fire
rescue in Broward.
Commissioners gave final
unanimous approval to fire
assessment fees and the
Jenada Isles gated entrance
improvements.
Residential fire fees were
raised to $112.34, an increase
from $100.85; Commercial
was raised to $24.59 from
$22.64; Industrial was
lowered from $1.49 to $1.41;
Institutional was increased
by 90 cents to $7.81;
Government was raised from
$18.34 to $21.10. Nursing
homes saw the biggest
increase, going from $97. 18
to $128.27.
The report also found that
Wilton Manors has the highest
parks and recreation per capital
costs vs. population. Patrick
Cann, director of leisure
services, which oversees the
city's parks and recreation
programs, says the cost of
running the public works
department is lumped in with
leisure services.
Former commissioner Joe
Angelo says the report leans
toward city consolidations.
"Government wasn't meant
to be fast or cheap. It was
designed to protect the rights
of us all. That is why the
passage of new laws seems
to take a long time. I don't
want us to "Wal-Mart"
government that means
we lose economies of scale
in favor of preserving our
rights. However, that doesn t
mean we can t operate more
effectively and learn from
other cities."
With Wilton Manors smaller
than many other cities, Angelo
says larger municipalities
can spread costs around
more effectively to tax
payers. Economies of scale
don t work as well in Wilton
Manors because the tax base
is smaller.

18 The Pelican


Friday, September 17, 2010


By Marise Estime Florida farm. For parishioners
PELIAN WITERand local residents in the
Tedder Community, growing
Pompano Beach Sun and eating exotic fruits and
ripened bananas, plums, vegetables have become a
papayas, mangoes and several reality.
varieties of citrus trees are For the past two years,
what you would find on an Parkway United Methodist
exotic island or a Central Church, 100 NE 44 St.,


Pompano Beach, congregants
and local garden enthusiasts
have been harvesting produce
on the church's six-acre
property.
Last week, the garden was
the focus of other church and
non-profit group leaders who
are considering the idea of


planting and harvesting food
for themselves and for local
soup kitchens.
The three-acre "The Fruit
for the Field" community
garden came about two years
ago when parishioner, Wayne
Boswell, says he had a divine
call to help the community.
"The idea came the day
after Hurricane M'ilma
destroyed the property, said
Boswell. "The construction
crew started removing the
trees, and I saw that there
was so much space. It was as
if God asked, 'What are you
going to do with it?"'"
Episcopal Charities of
Southeast Florida partnered
with Parkway United
Methodist Church in hosting
a two-hour garden workshop
to help interested parties
create a similar gardening
space that will benefit their
communities.
Guests included other
rectors from Lake Worth
and Miami, two Episcopal
churches interested in
following the lead of
Parkway.
"It is part of our "feedin
our people effort," said
Bonnie Weaver, grants
and resource director for
Episcopal Charities of
Southeast Florida. "We try
to partner with churches in
helping to share information,
ideas and best practices that
will benefit the community.
M'e also supply grant funding
for small gardens and other
feeding initiatives."
She added that the
I\ thLlldbl\ L are ahead of
the game with community
gardening."
Pastor John Walling and his
parishioners believe in the old
adage, "If you build it they
wili come. We know that there
is a community around us.
It's difficult for Christians to
understand the church has to
step outside [its boundaries].
As result of that we've created
a sister community."
Several fruit trees such
as papaya, mango, lychee,
tamarind, jakfruit, star fruit,
Barbados cherry and white


sapote reflect the diverse
cultures of the farmers. In
addition, garden enthusiasts
are growing vegetables that
have become mainstay in
some homes such as collards,
green beans and red sweet
potatoes.
This garden, while not the
"Victory Gardens" of World
Wars I or II, does exemplify
the economic times that
have created a community of
people who are chronically
hungry.
"We wanted to start a
garden to grow fruits and
vegetables for the community,
including food pantries,"
said Pastor Jim Walling. He
added, "We support pantries
that will give homeless people
fresh fruit and vegetables. "In
poor families, what children
need the most is what parents
can't afford, vegetables and
fruits. If we can produce fresh
vegetables and fruits and give
it to people in need that is our
goal."
Volunteers have been
instrumental in helping the
church reach its goal of
community feedin .
They volunteer hours
cleaning the fields and finding
ways to make the community
garden yield more fruits and
vegetables. "We have lots of
volunteers who use this as a
creative outlet" and as long
as it aligns with the mission
of the garden, they are free
to come," said Boswell. "We
make sure that we have an
ethical and moral way of
gardening and producing
produce."
To avoid waste, the church
is now using some well
water to irrigate the garden.
In addition they are in the
process of installing a 10-
gallon cistern to collect
rainwater making this
community garden a literal
green space.
On Oct. 23 from 9 a.m.
to noon, Parkway United
Methodist Church will host
another open house to educate
the public about community
gardening.

Weekly Fishing Report: Big swords










NOVA Southeastern University graduate student studies food chain off

South Florida waters, possible effects of oil and chemical dispersants


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF

Travis Moore loves to fish.
And he wants to make sure
the ocean can keep supporting
one of his favorite past-times.
Moore, an undergraduate
student from the University
of Alabama, working
on his masters degree in
marine b-iol l.-1\ at NOVA
Southeastern University,
is taking a look at wahoo,
mackerel, kingfish, black fin
tuna, bonitas and other fish to
see how they are affecting the
food chain. Aloore's research
focuses on the waters off the
Florida Keys up to Jupiter.
"Knowledge is power. The
more information we have,
the better chance we have of

samples from fish taken
before the leak, Moore has a
viable way to see whether or
not any fish in the area are
affected by oil or chemical
dispersants. He says he'll
start testing the samples he's
collected soon. "We already
had baseline data. I don't
know of any other people who
have baseline data."
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration,
officials say no oil or
dispersants made it into the
Atlantic Ocean. If there is
any contamination, he'll
be looking to see how it's
affecting the health of the fish
and if their diets are changing.

Stomach, liver and other
intestines and then returns
the fish."All we need are the
guts." One donation yielded a
fish that had just eaten its prey
which was fully intact inside
the fish's stomach.
For fish that have digested
their food, Moore performs a
chemical and stable isotope
analysis to discover fish diets.
"We compare chemicals
with the stomach content
analysis, and we can get a
pretty accurate picture of what
they're eating."

what the kids are think-

know yet that we have
spelling bees for the fourth
and fifth grades.
So, in an effort to figure
out exactly how smart these
students were, we asked a few
questions about geography.
All of them knew the cities
they lived in; the state and
the country. They also knew
the first and last name of the
president.
But the humdinger came
with the continent. They
looked at one another
wondering if we had just
made up a word to trick them.
Marquez jumped to the
rescue.
"You don't have to know
that until you are in the fifth
grade," he explained.
We stood corrected.
Then we had a chat with

Isaiah is a fourth grader at
Pompano Beach Elementary
School, and in his eight years,
he has formulated opinions.
We were chatting in an
office last week about movies.
Isaiah decided to give some
advice to a fellow student.
"Stay away from Friday the
Thirteenth," he says to Brian.
"Wait until you're 18."
Brian, a first grader at
Pompano Beach Elementary
School looks up at Isaiah with
wide eyes and shakes his head
up and down in assent.
The students are pretty
bright. All this writer had to
do was ask them.
"Yeah," said Marquez, a
fourth grader and the oldest
in the group. "I know how
to spell almost every word.
I would win first place in a
spelling bee."
He's only been a fourth-
grader for less than one week.
He said he would love to be in
a spelling bee, but his school
doesn't have one.
He's got a surprise in store.
Principal Michelle Garcia got
a chuckle out of Marquez's
remark. "He probably doesn't

Jacoby went right to the
intelligence factor and
explained that kids are much
smarter today than they were
in past generations.
"Way smarter," he added.
So we asked for their

her by her grandmother who
"helps her with the new
words."
Jacoby recalled the plot of

Doody said Christensen is
apparently out of the country.
The PEMS cannot be
removed until after Nov.
1 when sea turtle nesting
season is over. The beach
nourishment is scheduled for
sometime between Nov. 15
and March 1 but is dependent
on the PEMS being removed.
Dr. Christensen has refused
an offer which would have
paid him through December
of 2009 plus $10,000 for PEM
removal. He has countered
with a claim of $225,000
which would pay for the lease
of the equipment and sand
monitoring through June.
Beyond that, he would like an
endorsement of his product.
"We are very far apart,"

and had to be rescued by a
lifeguard.
Jacari's favorite is The
12ystery of the Mlissing Cat.
l annessa chose Because of
Winn Dixie.
And they recommended
movies ranging from
Despicable Mle to Avatar.
Both student groups made
it clear they loved school and
their teachers. They agreed
that they are not afraid to
learn new things.


When we asked Marquez,
who has plans to be on a
SWAT team, if that were a bit
scary, he reassured us that he
was not.
"They train you," he said.

us to launch our idea of

students at Pompano Beach
