Marjorie Shields, 83, [right] and Joan Tannenbaum, 78, took
their beach chairs to the Allen West campaign headquarters in
Deerfield Beach to protest West's position on pro-choice. Shei-
Ids, a former NBC employee, said, "He stands for everything
I am against."

women." Wasserman Schultz pointed to photos of women in the September, 2010 issue posed partially nude. The Congresswoman was
joined by others who demanded West "condemn" several statements in the magazine that were perceived as sexual slurs against women.
"I stand here for mothers, sisters and daughters. There is no place for this in Congress," Wasserman Schultz said. "One in four women
experience domestic violence. Three women are murdered by intimate partners every day The violence won't end until men join this
protest." West, who is listed as a staff writer for Wheels on the Road, said the magazine picked up his article off a blog, but he added,
"Everyone needs to hear assessments of the political situation. I write to get my message to all the people of South Florida.'

Lighthouse Point- Residents who

water meter charge, from $23.59 to

Private firm takes over code enforcement

from BSO Pompano Beach, city saves $$


By Marise Estime
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach Com-
missioners voted 4-2 Tuesday
to allow a private company,
Calvin, Giordano & Associ-
ates, Inc, to take over code
compliance for the city, a con-
tract that will save taxpayers
$400,000. The city currently
pays BSO $1.4 million to
enforce the codes.
Under the new contract,
Calvin, Giordano will reduce


staff from 15 to 10. Company
executives say although they
will have fewer code officers
they will be able to do the
job more effectively. "We do
more with fewer employees
because of our efficiencies. I
don't think we should make
an assumption that these
people (current employees)
will lose their jobs," said the
company's attorney Dennis
Mele, "If they are qualified,
they will be hired."
The contract calls for code


officers to work Monday
through Saturday during early
morning and evening hours.
But BSO union officials
were on hand to ask commis-
sioners to keep the program
with the Sheriff's office.
"These people like work-
ing in Pompano. It is a good
group of people who are like
family. After Wilma all I saw
were code enforcement work-
ing in the city. They were on

4,300 gallons a day or about
100,000 gallons a month
and while that is way off the
charts, on average single-fam-
ily homeowner here uses 580
gallons a day, well above the
473 gallons per day that is the
norm.
"We can attribute this to
irrigation, large lots and large
homes," Garcia said. But

the chief culprit is the one-
inch water meters installed
in these homes. Of all of his
customers, only 2300 have the
one-inch meters and 2100 of
them are in Lighthouse Point
Garcia said. The standard
meter, 5/8 inch, uses much
less water.
For example, a 5/8 inch me-
ter allows flow of 20 gallons a
minute; a one-inch meter, 50
gallons a minute. That is two
and half times more water.
Garcia bases his rates on both
monthly minimums and us-
age. Thirty-five percent of his
operating costs come from the
monthly water meter charges.
If you use a lot of water,
you'll pay he said.
Up until now, the one-inch
customer was being charged
the same as the 5/8 inch user
but this discrepancy has been
changed, Garcia said to pro-
vide for "a more fair distribu-
tion of the costs."
Initially, the large meter
owners were going to be
charged a monthly minimum
of $63 for waste water, the
same as commercial uses.
After reviewing the situation,
Garcia said that $44.60 seems
a fairer rate for the homeown-
ers.
The best way to reduce
water and sewer bills however
will be to replace the one-inch
meter with the smaller 5/8
inch. And the county will do
that for free. Since custom-
ers received notice of the rate
increase earlier this month,
about 100 have received the
smaller meter. There is more
good news for those who
downsize. The deposit on the
one-inch meter, paid when
service goes on, is $435 It's
only $115 for the 5/8 inch me-
ter and the difference, $320,
will appear as a credit on the
water bill.
Garcia is unsure why so
many one-inch meters were
installed in Lighthouse Point.
The larger meter has noth-
ing to do with better water
pressure he said. Almost all
single-family homes will have
sufficient pressure with the
smaller meter.
When the letters about the
rate increase went out Oct.
7, residents and city officials
were frustrated by the manner
in which the notification was
handled.
Garcia says he does "feel
bad" about the letter and he
will attend the next city com-
mission meeting, November
9, to explain the situation and
answer questions.
For homeowners who want
to go further to conserve
on irrigation expenses, the
county sends out an analyst
in a mobile irrigation lab who
will recommend placement
for low-flow sprinkler heads.

Once a sandal manufacturer, cobbler has plans for a new start


By Marise Estime
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach Luis
Benitez is no stranger to
hard work. At the age of four
he was an apprentice in his
father's shoe company in
Honduras. At age 10 he de-
signed and made his first pair
of shoes. Twenty years ago
he moved to America with
dreams of opening a shoe fac-
tory in Florida.
That dream became a
reality seven years ago when
he opened Benyz Shoes in
Hallandale. "I had 14 to 16
people working with me to
make custom made, leather
sandals for women," said
Benitez. "Then the economy
turned downward. I couldn't
keep the business. I moved to
Pompano Beach and worked
in a shoe repair store."
By the time he had closed
his factory, his sales volume
was in a steady decline. The
company wasn't able to
sustain enough activity to be
profitable. "It was so hard
to layoff everyone," said
Benitez. "I had to tell them
there was no work. I wanted
so badly to provide work for
them."
The sad turn of events gave
Benitez time to reflect on
what had gone wrong with his


Luis Benitez checks the fit for one of his clients, Maria Colomenares.


business. The economy was
partly to blame. His factory
sub contracted work for other
shoe manufacturers. As their
business dwindled, so did


his own sandals and ballroom
shoes rather than sub contract
work from other shoe manu-
facturers.
These days Benitez oper-
ates a shoe repair store at
213 South Federal Highway.
To add to his bottom line,
Benitez designs and makes
handmade ballroom and tango
shoes. "I started to dance
tango seven years ago and I
saw the opportunity to make
one- of -a -kind dance shoes,"
he said. "Dancers need nice
comfortable shoes."
Benitez says while the re-
cession is making big swaths
in the U.S. economy, it's
given a new lease on life to
the tiny shoe-repair industry
which has been shrinking for
decades. Nationwide, cob-
blers and their suppliers report
markedly higher revenues
than a year ago, as newly
frugal Americans opt to repair


their shoes rather than replace
them.
There are just 7,000 shoe-
repair shops left in the U.S.,
down from more than 120,000
during the Great Depres-
sion, according to the trade
group Shoe Service Institute
of America. The majority of
Benitez's business comes
from dress shoes made of
high-quality leather for both
men and women. A lot of
women's heels come though
his workshop, as well as
men's business shoes. Most of
the work consists of repairing
soles, heels and stitching.
Benitez's business isn't
limited to just shoes, how-
ever. He mends purses, belts,
backpacks and luggage. "I fix
aill\ lhinll_ made with leather,"
Benitez said. His craft is a
dying skill, which, ironically,

his. Benitez was forced to
store all of his machines in a
warehouse hoping someday to
open up another factory. This
time around, he plans to make

Chip LaMarca would provide

much-needed conservative view
By Judy Wilson
COMMENTARY

This is not a formal endorsement of Chip LaMarca who seeks to upend Bro-
ward County Mayor Ken Keechle in the Dist. 4 County Commission election
next week because the Pelican held no editorial review of the candidates for this
race.
So call it an educated comment: From what we have read, heard and know
about LaMarca, the Lighthouse Point City Commissioner would make a fine
county commissioner and provide some balance on a board with its nine seats
filled by Democrats.
LaMarca owns a construction company and has been heavily involved in
Republican politics. On his website he lays out a four-step plan he says will
decrease Broward's almost 11 percent unemployment rate. His plan includes
tax moratoriums on new small businesses and new environmentally responsible
construction projects, creation of a convention center hotel and a serious attempt
to entice at least two major companies to relocate here. Sounds like a plan that
could produce some local jobs and business growth, although we are not sure
which taxes could be suspended.
Keechle, an attorney from Wilton Manors active in the Democratic party and
the Gay and Lesbian Community Center, has no plan for increasing jobs except
to build the new courthouse. That will provide jobs, but the reality of the project
trickling down to encourage the development of small businesses is slim.
The third person on the ballot is Chris Chiari, a business consultant and
economic forecaster, a Democrat who registered as an Independent on Oct. 8.
Chiari proposes investing in solar generation installations that would encourage
local business to follow the county's lead.
LaMarca stands out in this election as being quite different from his oppo-
nents. Like other builders and business interests, he is against Amendment 4
which would give local voters the power to approve new development. Both
Keechle and Chiari favor the amendment which is endorsed by environmental
groups, but not so much with people who fear it would add huge expense and
bog down development.
Keechle has met his pledge to hold down property taxes and shrink the
county budget, but with dwindling revenues he, and the other commissioners,
had few other options.
As mentioned, if elected, LaMarca will be the lone Republican on the nine-
member county commission and since the district is almost evenly divided
among the two parties, it is the best possibility for a conservative voice on the
board, a voice that speaks for small business.
In largely liberal Broward, LaMarca would provide a small measure of bal-
ance.


POMPANO BEACH FL: Pompano Beach High School Senior, Erin Saley got a chance to vote for
the first time on Saturday at Pompano Beach City Hall. Erin just got voted herself as Home Coming
Queen the night before, during the Pompano Beach High School vs. Carnal Gibbons Football Game.
Since Erin turned 18, she decided to go out and express her right to vote early. While going to the
polls, she met and was greeted by Travis Williamson and Nora Rupert, who are running against each
other for the School Board Members District 7 seat. Erin was excited to meet both candidates.

Letters



Vote YES on Pompano amendments
Dear Editor

I'm writing this letter on behalf of the Pompano Beach Chamber of Com-
merce Board of Directors to encourage Pompano Residents to support the refer-
endums to City Amendments 1 and 2 in the November 2, 2010 election.
Amendment 1 is a housekeeping amendment which would remove the defini-
tion of the city's Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) from the city charter. Most
cities define their ZBAs in city ordinances.
Pompano Beach defines our ZBA in both the charter and city ordinances. So,
for us it is more difficult to keep the ZBA definition up to date because the char-
ter can only be changed by voter referendum.
There is no desire or intention to make any material change to the role and
function of the ZBA. The purpose of this amendment is simply to allow the
commission to make future housekeeping changes to the ZBA without having to
go to the voters repeatedly.
City amendment number 2 would streamline the City's ability to transfer city-
owned land to the Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)

By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Wilton Manors- Tuesday is mid-
term electionday for Congress and US
governors, but voters here will also
make decisions about local govern-
ment. On the ballot are two candidates
for mayor and five contenders for
three commission seats. All are either
seasoned public officials or longtime
community volunteers.
In the race for the mayor's two-year
term are incumbent Gary Resnick and
former commissioner Joe Angelo.
Seeking a four-year commission term
are incumbent Scott Newton, incum-
bent Ted Galatis and budget review
committee member Steve Zollo. Two
will be elected.
Civic activists Julie Carson and Ce-
leste Ellich are vying for the two-year,
unexpired term of Vice Mayor Justin
Flappen who must resign due to his
bid earlier this year for state office.
At a forum hosted last week by the
city's neighborhood associations, the
proposal to build a resort hotel, the
firing of the police chief, facilitating
development and the dynamic be-
tween the city's gay and straight com-
munities were among the more hotly
discussed topics.
All candidates agreed that the city
needs a community development
director, a position that is budgeted
this year. Carson and Ellich said more
services should be available on line to
counter complaints about the four-day
work week initiated recently. Newton
said some services are on line and to
upgrade further will cost $30,000.
"We're working on it," he said. Zollo
said it took from May to July to get a
permit for his own home renovations.
On the location of the proposed the
700,000 square-foot G Resort hotel/
time share development catering to
gay visitors, all candidates agreed that
28th street is not the proper place to
build.
"It's too tall and too large for the
residential neighborhood," Resnick
said. Zollo said even the revised
plans are not appropriate, but added,
"It's a shame. We need the tax base
and the jobs."

Pompano Beach Chamber honors Desiree

Saunders as Junior Light of the Community


By Phyllis J. Neuberger
PELICAN STAFF
It was a first for the Pompano Beach
Chamber! In the year 2010, Chamber
members decided to honor a high
school student as a bright Junior Light
and they chose Desiree Saunders.
Flashing a million dollar smile, she
says, "I appreciate being recognized
and I'm so grateful to both the Ki-
wanis and the Rotary for recommend-
ing me for this award."
Saunders's light has been burning
bright every year of her life at home
and in Pompano Beach High School
where she tries to live her favorite
Margaret Mead quote, Never doubt
that a small group of citizens can't
change the world because that's the
only group who ever did."
This high school senior will gradu-
ate with a 3.8 GPA as a member of the
National Honor Society, President of
the Kiwanis Key Club and a member
of the Rotary Interact Club. She's
applying for scholarships in addition
to the Bright Futures Scholarship
she counts on. "I'm applying to five
colleges, but Florida State in Tallahas-
see is my first choice," she admits.
"I hope to earn an RN and while I
work as a nurse I will continue taking
classes for another two years to earn
my master's degree and qualify as an
acute care nurse."
People often ask her why she
doesn't want to become a doctor. She
answers, "because I want to make
critically ill people feel better by be-
ing a support system that gives both
understanding and compassion. These
days, doctors have very limited time to
spend with patients."
Saunders is an only child of a single
parent. \ iy Mom has had two failed
cornea transplants," she explains, so
though she is legally blind in one eye
and in fragile health, I've been helping
her wherever I can. Since I became a
driver I have been taking her to medi-
cal appointments and other places. I
help with household duties and things
like that. I take care of her and she
takes care of our puppies. Mom has
always been there for me. She is my
biggest supporter."
Asked how Mom will manage when
she goes off to college, Saunders says,
"We've talked about that a lot. Aunt
Jinny, who leaves a few houses away
will help. They are both encouraging

Desiree Saunders was honored recently by the Pompano Beach Chamber of
Commerce. She was named Junior Light for her support for Kiwanis Key Club,
Rotary Interact Club, and her own love bag project for 40 foster care graduates
who face life on their own at 18 with no no money, no job, no home.


me to go away and have that experi-
ence."
Voted President of the Kiwanis Key
Club by her peers, Saunders says,
"We do a lot of projects. There are
69 members but only about 25 who
are active. We will be helping at The
Green Market on Oct. 30 when it
opens. We're doing a love bag project
which involved putting together bags


of toiletries and gift cards for 40 foster
care graduates who are suddenly on
their own. I started this project in my
sophomore year when I heard about
these young people. I can't imagine
what it would feel like to be turned
loose at 18 with no means, no money,
no family to help get started. I put

What a sad fate. What we
do isn't solving much, but it
shows somebody cares and
it provides help for a few
weeks."
Her on going book bag
project aspires to provide
elementary school children
with books they are unable to
afford.
The Rotary Interact Club is
still another source of inspira-


tion to this busy young adult.
The club brings guest speak-
ers to the school to introduce
its high school members to
its charitable activities world
wide, including the eradica-
tion of polio, and to inspire
these young people to help. It
works.
Saunders and the other
members have held fund rais-
ers year 'round and donated
every dime raised to help
the Rotary Club continue its
good works. According to
Saunders, the club has had car
washes, candy sales, tee-shirt
sales and given many personal
donations to the cause.
Michelle Levitas, math-


ematics teacher at Pompano
Beach High School, describes
Desiree as a "passionate, dedi-
cated, motivational student
and leader. She puts herself
last and puts the needs and de-
sires of others first. Whether
it's a student who needs help,
a peer looking for friends,
or a community looking for
support, Desiree makes sure
everyone and everything is
taken care of."
The Pelican congratulates
Desiree on her award and
hopes she will continue to
shine her bright light on the
less fortunate as she pursues
her dreams.

Pompano Beach Citi Cen-
tre, 1955 N. Federal Highway,
Pompano Beach, will offer
more than shopping Nov. 6
from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Charlotte Sundquist, Artistic
Productions, has gathered a
number of local artists who
will show their works at the
Centre's courtyard and on the
second floor.
Says Sundquist, a Light-
house Point resident, "This is
our third event at the Centre.
The next show will feature
Florida Atlantic University
graduate students, artist from
Jerry's Art-a-Rama in Deer-
field Beach and others.
One artist, Nolan Haan,
recent winner of the South
Florida Cultural Consortium,
will show five to six pieces.
Along with the artists, pa-
trons can enjoy the music of
the Funky Nuggets and watch
another artist work live.
Sundquist follows a dream
to turn Pompano Beach into a
viable center for culture. Her
business focuses on locating
vacant spaces that she can fill
with artists and music and put
them together with people
who enjoy those venues.

Amendments

by eliminating the present requirement
that the City put surplus City land up
for bid.
Currently if the city would like to
transfer a parcel it owns to the CRA,
say, to enable the CRA to assemble
several parcels in pursuit of the city's
redevelopment plans, the parcel would
have to be offered up for public bid-
ding.
This could enable a higher-bidding
third party to block the city's master
redevelopment plan by preventing the
city from transferring the parcel to
its own Community Redevelopment
Agency.
We urge the residents of Pompano
Beach to vote "YES" for both
charter amendments 1 and 2 on
November 2nd and help clear the
way for what we believe is a very
exciting period of economic revi-
talization for the City.
If you have any questions, we sug-
gest you contact your Pompano
Beach City Commissioner.

Nelson's Diner, the place where area folks

meet and greet for breakfast and lunch

By Phyllis J. Neuberger


PELICAN STAFF
Greg Nelson is not only the owner
of Nelson's Diner, he's also the chief
cook and bottle washer. 'When you're
a small business owner, you do it
all," he says with an easy smile. "You
buy the food, cook the food, plan
the menu, do the accounting, handle
the personnel, do customer rela-
tions-the works. In my case, I love
every aspect of this business. If there
is a downside, it's the hours, but if
you like what you're doing, even that
doesn't matter."
The Pelican caught him mopping
the floor at 3:15, shortly after closing
time.
Before sitting down for this inter-
view, he set his mop aside to greet
Steve Tidwell, owner of Body Spot
who says, L\ clyone in the neighbor-
hood knows me as Bama. I'm here
every day to pick up lunch or dinner
for my employees. You can't get a
bad meal here." Asked what his people
choose, he ticks off the most popular
choices, "We all love the breakfast
menu, the daily specials and of course
the pulled pork and cheeseburgers."
Opened on June 19, 2009 at 438
S. Cypress Road in Pompano Beach,
Nelson's became an instant success.
While waiting for his restaurant
furniture to arrive, Nelson introduced
himself, in person, to area business
people and offered samples of the
food to come. "I was all set to go hav-
ing gutted the place. My kitchen was
ready. Staff was on call but I had no
place to seat customers. When the art
deco booths and tables finally arrived,
I called Brad at my church, the First
Baptist, and four car loads of people
came immediately to help me unload
and set up. I still tear up when I think
of their friendship. I opened the next
day and when the lights went on, I lit-
erally filled up with wonderful patrons
who continue to return day after day,
week after week."
"Why wouldn't they' ?" asks Marge
Muth, director of community outreach
for Dignil\ Kraeer Funerals. Nel-
son's is the place to meet. The staff is
friendly and greets you by name. The
food is great and the price is right.
During the week you'll see every one
from the neighborhood as well as
from city hall including the Mayor.
Frank Furman and his gang, local
BSO, John Knox Village people are
all frequent diners, and on Sunday,
no matter which church you attend,
you're bound to meet fellow parishio-
ners there for breakfast or lunch."
"I never dreamed I'd have a staff of
11, but I do and we all keep busy,"
Nelson says. "Carol Scanlon is the
front house manager. My wife, Elyse,
is my bookkeeper, accountant, my
everything. Our two children, Hailey

Bumbling threesome can't get murder right


in LBTS Arts Center's next production


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
LBTS A fast-moving sus-
pense-comedy that premiered
off-Broadway at the Golden
Theater in New York City in
1979 will be staged next week
at Jarvis Hall.
The Community Perform-
ing Arts Center of Lauder-
dale-By-The-Sea will pres-
ent "Murder at the Howard
Johnson's" Nov. 4- 6. Ron
Clark and Sam Bobrick, who
also wrote "Norman, Is That
You?" are the playwrights.
The setting is at a Howard
Johnson's motor inn and the
action takes place during
three different holidays. The
plot involves a dentist whose
patients are a married couple.
First the dentist and the wife
have an affair and plot to kill
the husband. That plan goes
wrong. Next the couple plans
to kill the dentist, but that too
goes astray. Finally, the two
men get together and try to do
away with the wife. Based on
their previous experience, this
too is unsuccessful.
The play is rated PG (paren-
tal guidance) for its language.
The three actors are familiar
to Performing Arts Center au-
diences played alongside one
another in the Center produc-
tion of "Remember Me ."
Ron Harris is cast as the
dentist Dr. Mitchell Lovell.
Harris has been acting for
more than 40 years in com-
edies, dramas and musicals.

started acting in 1998 with the
Performing Arts Center under
the tutelage of Vincent Ragusa
who directs and produces
"Murder."
Martin has appeared in
many Arts Center productions

These people who work here

union representative, Anthony
Marciano.
The employees also turned
to former Pompano Beach
Mayor John Rayson to help
them save their jobs.
"Many people have devoted
their entire careers as Pompa-
no Beach employees. They do
a wonderful job for this city. I
am going to ask that you table

ees would like to meet with

lot of talk of change change

said Rayson.
Several residents gave
impassioned pleas for change,
while others wanted code
compliance to remain with
BSO. "Give the company a
chance and try something
else. I like what I heard from
the new people. They had
me hooked when they said
they are going to be proactive
rather than reactive. BSO has
been reactive," said Pompano
Beach resident Jean Flom.
"I think that BSO has
earned an opportunity to
handle code enforcement. You
should place a moratorium
before them and have BSO
fine tune their efforts," said
Palm Aire resident George
Coulahan.
"I hope they enforce the
nuisance abatement. Good
luck to everybody," added
Pompano Highland resident
Jeff Torrey.

may account for the increased
customer traffic. "There aren't
too many shoemakers around
here anymore," he said.
With economic analysts
predicting that things will get
worse before they get better,
Benitez expects his own busi-
ness will continue to prosper


and he has some lofty goals.
He hopes shows like "Danc-
ing with the Stars," which has
widened America's apprecia-
tion of ballroom dance, will
inspire people to own a pair of
real dance shoes. Currently he
makes about 20 pairs a month.
"I am never going to give
up my dream. I'm building
my business slowly again,"
said Benitez. He hopes to
employ at least 25 people by


next year and 250 by 2012,
doubling that number by 2019
if the economy gets better.
His advice to people who've
lost everything: "I will tell
anyone in my shoes that
something great is in store for
them. Don't give up because
when you have life, you have
to pray and God will make a
way."

Nelson's

Diner
Continued from page 12
15 and Grant, 13, come to
eat often, and in a pinch they
might be persuaded to lend
a hand. We live just a few
blocks away which is good for
a guy like me who comes in
at four a.m. to start prepping
every day and leaves around
six at night."
Those are long hours for a
man who spent the preced-
ing 20 years as Lou Bachrodt
Chevrolet Dealership as desk/
fleet/commercial manager.
"When I left Lou, we both
had tears in our eyes," Nel-
son admits. "I really wanted
to do something else and he
understood that. He's here
for lunch at least once a week.
We're the best of friends."
Nelson explains why he
gravitated to the restaurant
business. "I grew up in a
family restaurant called Capri
in Greenwood, South Caro-
lina. At 17, I came to Florida
with a baseball team, the


Greenville Braves. My back
gave out. I left the team and
became kitchen manager for
a Bobby Rubino's and later,
Tommy Norris so I know how
to run a kitchen, plan a menu,
and estimate quantities to buy
and prepare. We have three
in the kitchen here during the
week and four on weekends.
I'm always one of the cooks."
The $5.99 daily specials
are all great sellers and the
regulars keep track of the
day their favorites are
featured. Monday is pot roast.
Tuesday is meat loaf. Wednes-
day is open face roast beef
and sloppy Joe's. Thursday
is turkey, mashed potatoes
and gravy. Friday is tilapia or
shrimp. Diners have many
other soup and sandwich op-
tions. A full breakfast menu
is available until 11 a.m.
Nelson faxes daily menus
to his take-out customers and
says that 'meals to go' make
up about one third of his daily
business.
Asked what he does with
his leftovers, Nelson answers,
"There usually aren't many,


Greg Nelson, owner of Nelson's Diner in Pompano Beach, steps out of the kitchen to join Carol Scanlon, front house
manager. "I never dreamed I'd have a staff of 11, but I do, and we all keep busy," Nelson's says.


but if there are, I give them to
friends or good causes in the
area."
Asked what happens when
he's filled to capacity, he says,
" I bring juice or coffee out to
those who are waiting. Many
come in, look around, find
someone they know and join


them. We're like cheers.
Our customers get acquaint-
ed with each other and often
sit together if it's crowded."
Beside food and
fellowship, Nelson's Diner
offers a little nostalgia.
Elvis, baseball and 50's
memorabilia decorate the


walls, while music from the
50s and 60s plays quietly in
the background. There's even
a challenge to answer the daily
trivia question and maybe win a
free lunch or breakfast.
Open 7 days from 6 a.m. to 3
p.m. Free delivery (no mini-
mum). Call 954-785-3646.

Rotting trees
removed; 40
new ones
coming
By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Pompano Beach More
than 40 trees will be planted
in Cresthaven Park as part
of city improvements to the
site Robin Bird, Director of
Development Services, said at
a recent meeting of the Crest-
haven Civic Association.
Eight trees, determined by
urban foresters to be in poor
condition, were removed last
week. Some had suffered
storm damage, others were
victims of improper pruning.
Resident Donna Fried-
man, who protested the tree
removal when it was first
announced, had gathered 100
signatures from residents
asking to save the trees. This
week, after the trees were
destroyed, she said, she was
"heartbroken."
What will provide shade,
a windbreak and habitats in
the future at Cresthaven Park
will be silver buttonwoods,
Simpson stoppers, tamarinds
and live oaks, 10 to 20 feet in
height.
"The city is making a
$30,000 investment in the
trees," Bird said.
At the Civic Associa-
tion meeting, Bird gave the
audience reasons for the tree
removal. A Paradise tree
was being eaten by ants, he
said. Eventually, it will fall.
He compared the ants to a
rod knocking in a '66 Chevy.
"One day it will go through
the block," he said. He
pointed out a small tree with a
six-inch pit in the trunk where
water collects attracting bugs.
That will eventually cause
the tree to break apart. The
concern with damaged trees
is that they will fall and hurt
someone, he said.
Bird told of an incident at
the Central Park Zoo in New

Continued from page 13

York City where a couple
stopped to take a family photo
and a tree branch fell on and
killed a six-month-old baby.
Friedman asked Bird if
there was any chance three
trees marked for removal in
the back of the park could
remain. "I like to call them
the three sisters. They're not
bothering anyone. They're
beautiful shade trees, with
birds nesting in them. I love
them and those need to be
here," she said. Bird said the
request had been reviewed.
"When a tree is rotting at the
center ... it will break. It's
only a matter of time," he
said.
Friedman said the new trees
A Should be planted first. "When
those are in fullness, then cut
down the trees. Birds and
squirrels have to have a place
to live," she said.
Resident John Mead asked
if the city was buying replace-
ment trees or growing them in
/ O0the city nursery. Bird said the
city is purchasing the trees.
"Trees are a bargain, and
now is the dormant season.
If we can get them planted in
oF d N v e 5 0 -6gtg*January, they will grow. You
will be getting more trees and
more shade," he said.
Other improvements to the
park include the addition of a
Bookinlcludestwo imiedE itinPrntshalf court for basketball, cov-
sTered playground equipment
and more landscaping.

Deerfield Beach's Hot Tomatoe is a great little place for

authentic Italian specialties and fine wines


By Malcolm McClintock
FOOD WRITER
"I couldn't create fabulous
dishes if I didn't love good
food myself," says Executive
Chef and Hot Tomatoe owner
Elsa Addario.
The wily restaurateur has
parlayed 15 years of culinary
experience into her own
Deerfield Beach trattoria.
The time spent living in and
around Naples has honed her
skills in the fine art of Italian
cuisine.
From homemade mozzarella
to Portobello ravioli, from
shrimp marinara to veal
Marsala, the menu is replete
with specialties that transport
the diner to the Italian
countryside.

Vive Le Bistro

loves talent

By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER
This is tempting.
Le Bistro, 4626 N. Federal
Highway, Lighthouse Point,
will host "Lighthouse Point's
Got Talent" on Nov. 15. The
competition promises to be
lighthearted and can include
lots of optional talent: a
prepared recipe, a song about
food or wine, jokes, perform
a musical composition on
kitchen utensils, j.'.'liill
or just your best talented
performance.
If you are anything like me,
a chance to spout off a few
musical show tunes cannot be
resisted.
And if you're an \ ailing like
me, you can't sing. Never
bothered me in the past, and
will not bother me in the
future.
Show tunes demarcate my
days, and there are plenty of
songs about food and wine.
How about "Bloody Mary"
from South Pacific. She
is always eating. "Bloody
Mary's chewin' betel nuts.
Now Ain't that too damn
bad."
Actually those lines double
dip with food and drink.
But what good is all this fun
without money--as someone
once said.
To enter the contest,
plan on a $25 donation to
V Foundation for Cancer
Research.
Now recall,
In the days of the show
tunes of the 50's and 60's,
the word Cancer was a death
sentence. We cringed from
hearing it, and we, now the
aging Baby Boomers, the
ones who sang the songs
of Camelot, Oklahoma and
Show Boat and the ones
who discovered Julia Child's
Mastering the Art of French
Cooking could well be the
ones who find the cure.
Every effort, from Relay for
Life to this local event, puts
money for research into this
disease.
We may have grown up
with Cancer as the Boogey
Man, but research, early
detection and new procedures
are breaking that mystique.
Congratulations to Le Bistro
for this fine idea.

SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
The Sample-McDougald House Preservation Society hosted
a fundraising party last Saturday evening at the Hillsboro Inlet
home of Tom and Lee Waldo. About 70 of the organization's
supporters attended and were treated to fine food, music by the
"old Time Jammers" and an art and fashion show staged by Pat
Anderson, owner of My Own Cruising Journal.
The event was sponsored in part by Florida Shores Bank and
Gold Coast Beverages.
Funds raised at the event will support the site development
and landscaping of the historic Sample-McDougald House.
Currently, the organization has raised approximately $850,000
toward its goal of $1.2 million for the this final phase of the
restoration project.
"In these tight economic times, it is gratifying to see civic-
minded businesses and individuals support this important
community project," said Dan Hobby, the organization's
executive director.


Cresthaven group celebrates

unity with BSO, pasta style
By Anne Siren


PELICAN STAFF
After nearly two years of
campaigning for Broward
Sheriff's Office to continue
its contract with Pompano
Beach, members of the
Cresthaven Neighborhood
Watch were ready for a
party.
That's what happened this
month at the Pink Church,
or The First Presbyterian
Church, in Pompano Beach.
Carol Waldrop, president
of the Neighborhood Watch,
said the group wanted a
"Unity" celebration.
Letha Stack and Nancy
Kenny worked as chefs
for the evening preparing
enough pasta to give the
evening a strong Italian flair.
"We are in such need of
BSO," said Waldrop. "We
have annexed other areas.
We have more people, and
we need BSO to keep us
safe and add to the quality
of life here."
The Cresthaven
Neighborhood Watch hosts
monthly meetings on the
third Thursday of each
month at St. Elizabeth
Catholic Church, 901 NE
33 St., Pompano Beach.
Meetings also include
regular speakers from BSO,
city officials and others.
Meetings are free and open


Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar
Fisher, Bette Collins
to the public. Waldrop urges
all residents with concerns
about their neighborhood
to attend. For more
information, call 954-786-

Thursday, Nov. 4 at a meeting
of the Planning and Zoning
Board. Connecticut developer
Ralph Little will request the
recreation commercial land
use designation be change
to community facility which
would allow development of
a memorial garden in Crystal
Lake.
The proposal is the latest
in his attempt to develop the
property. Several attempts to
get land use changes to allow
residential development have
failed due to the residents'
opposition. The last idea, a
water park, also failed when
residents complained about
the disturbance di iill, two
lakes and removing the fill
would create. At one point,
Little considered giving 80
acres to the city for a park
if the remainder could be
rezoned for living units.
The cemetery proposal was
presented to residents in the
summer and at that time drew
no opposition.

Wilton Manors: small town with big share of haunts


By Cynthia Thuma
PELICAN WRITER
Wilton Manors -
Wilton Manors is one of
Broward County's smaller
municipalities, but has a
haunted history second to
none. The Island City has
three sites that have, over the
years, reportedly been the site
of paranormal activity.
The Unlucky House
It used to be just another
starter home, a tiny pink
house at 1 NE 26 Court,
alongside Andrews Avenue.
In the late 1950s, a tragic
accident occurred in front of
the home when a young girl
riding her bicycle home for
lunch fell and was crushed
underneath an 18-wheeler.
Twenty years later, just
after midnight on the night
of June 12, 1973, William
Smith, 14, returned home to
a grisly sight. His mother,
Linda, brothers Christopher,
11, and Robin, 9, and sister
Karen, 7, lay dead, their
bodies scattered throughout
the home.
Linda Smith had been
beaten and stabbed. The
children had been shot,
slashed and stabbed with
a steak knife taken from a
kitchen drawer. A suspect
was identified, but no arrests
were ever made and the Smith
Family murders to this day
remain unsolved. But the cozy
little home took on a sinister
nickname: The Unlucky
House. Children avoided
it and spoke of it as being
possessed by evil forces.
People crossed Andrews
Avenue to avoid walking on
the sidewalk adjoining the
little house's yard.
Five years later, the little
pink house was again in the
news. On June 28, 1978,
Joyce "Cookie" Summerhill
left it and walked south in the
night air.
Summerhill, the mother
of a 10-year-old daughter,
was just starting to enjoy
her life again after a rough
patch. Two years earlier, she
had undergone major brain
surgery. She continued to take


seizure medication, but she
had improved significantly
and was beginning to enjoy
socializing.
At about 10 p.m. she began
her walk toward Big Daddy's
lounge and package store at
1721 N. Andrews Ave., but
never reached her destination.
About halfway there, she
was accosted and strangled.
Her body was left in dense
underbrush near an abandoned
home about 30 feet off
Andrews Avenue, between
N.E. 22nd and 23rd streets. It
was found a week later.
After three tragedies,the
little house was transformed
into a medical office and its
unlucky reputation seems to
have dissipated into thin air.
The old city hall
Over the summer, Wilton
Manors' original city hall at
524 N.E. 21st Court was razed
and turned into a parking lot.
The old building was a quirky
but famous place.
In 1956, the city acquired
land for a municipal center
from Food Fair. Architect
William Bigoney drew up
the plans for the building,
which housed the city's
administrative offices as
well as its fire and police
departments. The building
opened in 1957 and in 1969,
the fire department moved
out and the truck bays were
converted to larger chambers
for the city council. That's
about the time city staff
noticed the council chambers
had acquired a decidedly
hostile feel.
"People reported cold
spots in the building and
said they often felt as though
they were being watched,"
said Catherine Lower, of
Jacksonville, co-author of
"Haunted Florida: Ghosts
and Strange Phenomena of
the Sunshine State. "Some
staffers wouldn't work alone
in the council chambers at
night."
When John Bold, a longtime
worker for the parks and
recreation department died,
his friends carried out his
wish to scatter a bit of his
ashes in each of the city's


parks. But some of the ashes
were left over and no one
quite knew what to do with
them. Finally, it was agreed
his remaining ashes would be
placed into the walls at city
hall.
When city hall was
demolished over the summer,


them undisturbed.
Richardson Historic
Park and Nature Pre-
serve
The Richardson family is
among the Island City's most
prominent pioneer families.
The family built and operated


folks who knew where Bold's a nine-hole golf course
ashes had been placed left that opened in 1937, and


built their own home on the
property as well, on the site
where city founder Edward
John "Ned" Willingham had
built his home. The carriage
house, built in the mid-1920s
still survives and so does the
manor home, built about 30

Taste of the Island packs Richardson Park with

fans and food from best restaurants in town


Once inside the gates, they
tucked into many kinds of
great grub, from smoothies
and cookies to bites that
could have been featured on
Food Network, such as oven
roasted Norway Salmon with
cucumber wasabi.
From an idea offered by
Shirley Nolan, a longtime
local resident and community
activist, the event has
grown to bring together
local restaurants who serve
taste-sized portions of their
specialties. From mini
crabcakes, fire-grilled wings
and catfish bites, to chocolate
fondue, drunken cheese and
clam chowder, there was
something for everyone to
savor, from soup to dessert.
And there were plenty of


By Cynthia Thuma
PELICAN WRITER
Those with a taste for the
sweet or savory, and those
with a penchant for the subtle
or spicy could easily agree:
the Fifth Annual Taste of the
Island, held at Richardson
Historic Park and Nature
Preserve, was a real palate-
pleaser.
The final figures aren't
in yet, but all signs point
to a record-breaking year,
said Diane Cline, president
of the Wilton Manors
Historical Society, one of four
beneficiaries of proceeds from
the event. From the moment
the gates opened at 6 p.m.
until they closed at 9, guests
plunked down $35 to pack the
park and pack in the food.

beverages high and low

The 2010 event kept
its serpentine layout, that
allowed guests to stroll, chat
and sample the offerings
as they ambled through the
park's gardens. However,
the 2010 event also offered
more covered seating areas, a
reminder that from the start,
the event has grown and
improved.
"The first year, we planned
for 150 guests and 250
showed up," said Cline.
"We had to go out for more
supplies. Each year it has
grown, and this year was
by far the largest turnout
we have had." Other local

for having the highest grade
point average of all the
competitors and as might
be expected from scholar-
musicians, they came away
from the nation's capital with
some profound observations.
"I learned that no matter
what, you are always a
winner," Kadeem Duckie
said. "While we did not win
first place, many people came
up to me and said we were
the most enjoyable band to
watch."
Said Brenda Nava,
"Looking out from the
Lincoln Memorial, I saw the
reflection of the Washington


Monument and it made me
think how beautiful our
country is."
The Lincoln Memorial
also impressed Margaret
McDonilel. It was, she says,
her favorite memory. "I got
to read his inaugural speech
which was really cool and
showed me that Abe was a
powerful speaker."
The Ely Band was invited to
the Field Show because it won
the Florida State Marching
Band Competition in 2009 in
the Show Band Class. The
cost to travel to Washington
for the once- in- a- lifetime
experience, competing on
the White House Ellipse on
Columbus Day, was $130,000.
About $77,000 was raised

week. The public will have a
chance to hear the Ely Band
and make a contribution at the
opening of Pompano's Green
Market Saturday morning.
Beckford hopes to schedule
other fund-raising concerts to
defray the debt.
The caravan of students in
five buses were in DC for five
days under the direction of
Beckford who believes such
trips bring the classroom to
life. "What an experience to
see the actual monuments that
are talked about in American
history or government. It
is important that students
experience things beyond
the classroom to help them
understand the world is much
bigger than the town they live
in," he said.
Band Booster Secretary
Cheryl Boucher said that
walking around with the kids
as they learned about the
country was "truly humbling.
These students represent
what will be great about our
country. What a wonderful
representation of our future
generation," she said.
All the students were
impressed by Arlington
Cemetery and the sacrifice
others had made for their
freedom. "The Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier touched my
heart," said Lisanne Harrison.
"It showed me that anyone
who fights for our freedom is
recognized, even if we can't
call them by their names."
Donatae Williams said the
trip to Arlington helped her
appreciate her freedoms and
Angelique Scott said the
entire city of Washington
opened her eyes to "the
sacrifices other people have
made to make our country
what it is today."
The Mighty Tigers placed
fourth in the Field Show and
have received an invitation to
perform in Hawaii at the 70th
anniversary of Pearl Harbor.

Election
Continued from page 7
Galatis said he is opposed to
building in that neighborhood,
but not opposed to the hotel
in a proper area. Newton said
the old trailer park site was
preferable. Ellich said she is
"appalled" at the size of the
complex wants it moved to
another location. Carson said
it is not compatible where it is
planned.
The audience questioned
City Manager Joe Gallegos's
handling of Police
Chief Richard Perez's
firing. Angelo called it
"inappropriate and lacking
in leadership." Resnick said
the process worked and that
he supports the city manager
who was given another two-
year contract in September.
Zollo said, "In the last five
or six years, the city has
stumbled from one personnel
problem to another. A new


commission should look
into all departments, from
top to bottom." Ellich felt
the process was not handled
well and the policy needs
reworking. Carson said she
was disappointed that the
chief was allowed to continue
while he was under criminal
investigation on two other
counts before he e-mailed the
disparaging, racial and sexual
comments that ultimately got
him fired.
As to the question of gay/
straight tensions within the
community, Resnick said. "I
don't think there is a huge
divide." Angelo countered
accusing the mayor of "bias"
in his office.
Carson agreed with
Resnick. Ellich said she does
have a problem. "There are
places where straights don't
feel welcome," she said.
Zollo said some actions
at community events have
increased tensions. Santa

Claus as a drag queen is an
example he said.
A question of term limits
drew a mixed response.
The issue would have to go
referendum because terms
are set in the city charter, a
fact pointed out by Resnick,
Newton and Galatis. The
others all said they favored of
term limits for commissioners.
For candidates who had
received endorsements from
unions, the question was
asked, "Will you look out for
the taxpayer?" Angelo and
Carson sided with the unions.
Angelo said the commission
needs to negotiate with the
unions to obtain contracts.
"We need to negotiate in a
faithful manner. I'm tired of
us hitting a brick wall. They
(the unions) have a partner in
me."
Carson who received
endorsements from the PBA,
AFL/CIO, and Fraternal Order
of Police said unions reps are
more willing to speak with
commissioners if they know
they will be heard. "I believe
the pensions can be offset by
savings in management," she
said. Her opponent Ellich said
she does not favor the union's
request for STEP increases.
Zollo got the endorsement but
said he has concerns about
higher pensions. Galatis
said "the professionals"
should be at the bargaining
table. Newton said he got
both police and fire union
endorsements because "they
know I'm fair. They know
citizens want good police and
fire services."
Resnick said he refused the
Police Benevolent Association
endorsement while the
contract is being negotiated.
"I would never make promises
in return for an endorsement,"
Resnick said.

Continued from page 23
from the proceeds are Wilton
Manors Leisure Services
Department, Kiwanis Club
of Wilton Manors and Wilton
Manors Main Street. Inside
the Richardson Manor House,
the super silent auction
packages raised funds for the
Friends of the Wilton Manors
Library.
"We hope to give more this
year to the charities," Cline
said.
The restaurants vied for
the best-dressed table award,
won by the Southport Raw
Bar, which served up portions
of chilled blackened dolphin
with garden dip and shrimp
and scallop ceviche with a
hint of citrus juice. Second
place went to Cookies by
Design and third to local
favorite Humpys Pizza &
Panini. All the restaurants
- from Lola's on Harrison,
in Hollywood, which served
up tastes of its nationally
famous Coca-Cola Bar-B-Q
beef ribs to vegetable panini
bites from Crema D'Roma
on Wilton Drive, fried catfish
strips, jumbo shrimp and
hushpuppies from Catfish
Dewey's and Big Dog
Station's macaroni and cheese
drew praise from the guests.
Former Wilton Manors
Mayor King Wilkinson,
proprietor of Red's Bar
and Package Store, said his
establishment has been part of
the event since its start and he
enjoys it for its friend-raising
opportunities as well as the
fund raising it does for local


nonprofits.
"We brought three kegs
of beer, 500 Jello shots and
lots of bottles of ice water,"
Wilkinson said. "Of course we
do this for the business, but I
like to do events like this, too.
I get a chance to flirt with all
the beautiful women here."


Haunts
Continued from page 23
years later, but the earliest
inhabitants were probably
Tequesta Indians, who left
midden, shell heaps, on the
banks of the south fork of
the Middle River that run
alongside the Richardson
property.
Long regarded as a haunted
location, the best-known spirit
thought to inhabit the park


property is Buddy Hicks, a
beloved longtime chauffeur,
handyman and attendant for
the Richardson family. Hicks
died in 1954 from injuries
suffered in a traffic accident,
but is said to continue his care
of the house and grounds. The
sounds of screaming babies
are said to be heard coming
from the empty buildings at
night, and other apparitions,
such as a pair of orbs spotted
in the manor house, continue
to be reported.
"Ghosts don't wear labels,
so we don't know who those
orbs were," said paranormal
researcher John Marc Carr,
author of "Haunted Fort
Lauderdale" and operator of
the Fort Lauderdale Ghost
Tour. The carriage house,
Carr said, seemed to hold the
most promise when he and his


I Profe ssioina [ HomeCo ; stuio r iFiri i r.In.


-AIX


group investigated the place
in 2007.
"We weren't allowed
inside the carriage house, but
whenever we brought our
equipment up to the windows,
it would fail, literally shut
off, and the batteries were
zapped," he said.


When Carr and his
investigators checked the
area along the waterway, they
were surprised with what they
found. "We saw something
like 50 orbs just hanging in
the trees there," he said. "It
was almost like Christmas
lights."


Spooktacular in Wilton Manors
Today from 6 to 9:15 p.m the City of Wilton Manors

Now a victim of muscular dystrophy, this

angler will not give up his end of the pole


By Cynthia Thuma ..


PELICAN WRITER

Some of the most special
and memorable moments
in Jim Hargaden's life have
come at one end of a fishing
pole. His love for fishing was
amplified by his 30-year role
in the family business of
fishing tackle.
Hargaden moved to
South Florida in 1979 from
Lakeland, basically boosting
his fishing horizons from
freshwater only to saltwater
and freshwater. He could fish
from the shore, from boats
and piers. Life was good, and
so was the fishing. But along
the way, Hargaden, 50, heard
a clock ticking softly in the
background. In adulthood, the
ticking grew louder.
"I had been born with a
form of muscular dystrophy,"
he said. "I was a pretty good
athlete when I was young,
not really graceful, but I got
the job done. The muscular
dystrophy didn't really affect
me much until I became older.
I had to quit fishing a few
years ago."
Hargaden still feels


excitement every time there's
a pull at the other end of the
line, but because he did much
of his fishing from boats, he
had difficulties getting around
on deck.
"Stairs and me are no longer
friends," he says.
Depression was one option.
Hargaden wouldn't think of
it. Giving up fishing forever
was another. He wouldn't
consider that, either. He chose
innovation and looked for a
way he could fish again as
well as help other anglers with
disabilities fish, too.
He started a foundation,
Armchair Anglers, and in
March 2009, it was designated
a 501 (c) (3)non-profit


corporation dedicated to
providing "world-class fishing
adventures to those with
physical challenges." The
organization's headquarters is
in Wilton Manors.
His first need is a floating
facility, actually a specially
modified boat, designed
and rigged to accommodate
wheelchairs and anglers
whose mobility may be
impaired.
"I found a small boat
manufacturer up in North
Florida who can make that
boat for me," Hargaden says.
"I found the right boat and the
people with the know-how
to do it right. It's a big, flat
catamaran, a high-tech, cool
boat."
Now Hargaden is involved
in the most crucial phase of
the endeavor raising funds.
He's approached his friends in
the business and found them
supportive, but still reeling
from the effects of economic
hard times.
L\ c lybody's saying 'Jim,
Jim, this is a great idea, but
I'm just about bankrupt right
now,"' Hargaden says.
Still, Hargaden moves
ahead, welcoming all donors,
but looking for that one
special one who will help
transform Armchair Anglers
from one man's great idea
to reality. Hargaden also is


WAHOOS ARE
Weekly Fishing Report
By RJ Boyle
PELICAN WRITER
Over the
last week
we had
numerous
reports of
great wahoo
catches off
of Bimini.
The best
of the bite
was just north of Great Isaacs
Light and out in front of Cat
Key. Most of the fish early
in the season will average
around 35 pounds. Larger
wahoos will start to show
up at the end of November
and carry on right through
February. I have caught
numerous wahoos between 60
and 801bs later in the season.
For wahoo make sure you
have some good high speed
wahoo lures rigged. These


considering how to staff the
boat with captains, mates and
other assistants. He's learning
how community-service
projects work and award
hours. In short, he is exploring
all avenues.
"I'm trying to think outside
the box," he says. "I've
got a lot of sticks in the
fire, but I'm still a one-guy
organization. I don't want the
promotion or the notoriety;


BITING!!!!!
lures, fished with a cigar lead
in front of them to keep them
under the surface, seems to
be the ticket. On certain days
color of the lures does seem
to make a difference. Pink
and blue, red and black, and
purple and black are some
of the colors you will need
to add to your arsenal. Troll
these lures between 12 and
16kts for best results. Troll
the lures between 150 and 650
feet of water and follow the
edge of the reef which runs
north and south.
One bit of advice, when
you hook that wahoo: make
sure to turn the boat off the
edge towards the west. If you
don't, chances are that your
wahoo will become lunch for
a hungry barracuda or shark.

Get Tight!!!!!

RJ Boyle


I want to be behind the
scenes. I want to go where
the fish are. The boat will be
tournament-rigged and we'll
take anyone who's serious
about fishing: young kids, old
people, wounded warriors.
I don't want to discourage
anybody."

Tomatoe
Continued from page 17
of Federal Hwy between
10th St and Hillsboro Blvd,
this quaint wine bistro with
plush seating exudes warmth
and charm. Patrons are often
greeted by Elsa herself as
brother Enzo keeps an eye on
the kitchen.
A great way to start an
outing is with the House
Antipasto plate. It features
fresh mozzarella cheese,
roasted red peppers, grilled
vegetables and tomatoes.
Other appetizers include
fried calamari with Diavola
sauce and baked sliced
eggplant Rollatini with ricotta
and spinach.
The Mediterranean salad
is a pleasant melange of
house greens, mozzarella, red
peppers, gorgonzola, grilled
eggplant, garbanzo beans,
Tuscan peppers, olives and
tomatoes tossed with house
dressing.
"We make all our sauces
and dressings in house,"
says Elsa as she brings a
large homemade meatball
smothered in tiiin.'\ marinara
sauce sprinkled with fresh
basil. Served with rigatoni,
the dish can also be enjoyed
as an early bird special.
"We make our pasta fresh
on site," says Enzo delivering
a plate of penne covered with
jumbo shrimp, green peas
and pesto gorgonzola cream.
The linguine with clams or
sausage is also a fan favorite.
\ ly Sunday sauce is out of
this world," says Elsa of the
traditional dish that unveils
select cuts of beef and pork

hearty tomato sauce. Served
over rigatoni, it is the epitome
of Italian comfort food. It can
be scooped up for $10 a plate
on you guessed it Sundays.
Chicken and veal can
be enjoyed in a variety of
fashions. Popular choices
include saut6ed in Marsala
wine with mushrooms and,
Alla Sorrentino with eggplant,
prosciutto and Mozarella in
white wine tomato sauce.
There are other flavorful
preparations to consider as


well. The Piccata style with
capers and white wine lemon
sauce is always flavor-packed
while Parmigiana is a time
tested crowd pleaser.
L\ Nclyone absolutely loves
our Snapper Francaise, "says
Elsa. The fish is dipped in
a light egg wash, pan fried
and smothered in a zesty
lemon butter sauce. The moist
filet is flavorful and highly
satisfying.
For another seafood option,
the Zuppa di Pesce showcases
plump shrimp, clams,

But Hot Tomatoe is also a
wine bar. "We have 7 to 10
