Well, we did it. Admittedly it was
scary, but we made it through the
hurricane season: we learned to find
real news through cable comedy
channels, and most of us discovered
that we could live without much of
what we once considered necessities.
So here is our somewhat irreverent
l00k at the past.
Most of us paid lower taxes, and
that was nice except that our proper-
ty values plummeted--now that was
really bad if we were ready to sell.
Yet, despite these hard times, our
commissioners continued to reduce

Pomnpano Has Heart launched mission in 2010,

today help has reached young children

By Anne Siren


PELICAN STAFF

Pompano Beach While
Florida residents dodged hurricane
bullets this year, a small group of
residents aimed their attention on
Haiti, a country that seems to take
every bullet headed its way.
Last January, an earthquake
shook the small island that is about
the size of Maryland, leaving in its
wake death, injury, hunger, thirst
and mayhem.
Within weeks of the earthquake,
a group of residents, meeting at the
Pompano Beach Chamber office,
named themselves Pompano Has
Heart. That was about a year ago.
Today, a used van, loaded with
supplies from Pompano Has
Heart, is headed for an orphan-
age in Desvaicau, a mountairmus

tax rates.
And that was nice except that so
many other public rates went up like
bus fares, recreation fees, permit fees
and other assessments.
How dumb do they think we are?
It's a reasonable question. In No-
vember, we saw write-in candidates
appear on ballots. Does anybody
remember their names? These are
people who neither campaign nor as-
pire to public office. Then why do they
run? Because another politician put
them up to it to avoid running locally--
where they are so well known.
Change the channel, please.
We all watched closely as the BP Oil
Spill, yep, we say BP as in British Pe-


troleum, oil spill, came to Florida's
western shore.
We mourned the deaths of the 11
oil rig workers who were killed by
the explosion. Later we watched
the agonizing and slow deaths of
birds on shore or those unable to
swim through the cruddy waters.
On the home front, we watched
friends and neighbors lose homes to
foreclosure .
We lost stores that had once been
mainstays and even landmarks in
our cities and towns.
Some of us died, some of us lived
and some were arrested.
So here we offer last year's his-
tory. Enjoy 2010.

In Retro Hillsboro Beach, shifting sands and permits for

water are key achievements in 2010


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN H RITER
Hillsboro Beach The
year started and ended with
the PEMs, an experimental
beach erosion control system,
dominating the discussion.
EcoShore International, the
company that installed the
PEMs on the town's north
beach, asks for mediation
after the commission votes
to cancel a contract worth
$500,000.
Dr. Ken Christensen,
President of EcoShore, shows
tests that indicate sand is
accumulating in the test area
and claims that he is fu~lfill-
ing his contract. He offers to
cut the town's costs for the
remainder of the contract by
$200,000. Commissioners
remain unconvinced that the
system is retaining sand.
In July, thev insist the
PEMs be removed so that
a major beach restoration
project can go forward. Dr.


restaurant owner Dick Mag-
giore is selected to fill out his
term which expires in March.
Maggiore is named the town's
finance commissioner and

Christensen asks for $225,000
and a letter from the town
stating that the PEM system
works. Commissioners hedge
and offer $125,000 plus
$10,000 to remove the PEMs.
They are reluctant to endorse
the system, but at year's end
agree to language that ac-
knowledges Dr. Christensen's
test results.
The beach restoration
project moves through local
and state agencies and it ap-
pears the final permits will
be issued and that sand will
be pumped onto one mile
of beach on the north end
of town sometime in Febru-


ary, but as of this writing, the
PEMs are still in place.
Another capital project the
rebuild of the town's 50-year-
old water plant- also occupies
much of the commission's
time. Finally, a lapsed water
permit is reissued allowing
officials to begin reconstruc-
tion of the plant. Consultants
obtain a $5.2 million loan
which will be repaid by fees
generated by new water rates
that encourage conservation.
Politics is in the news in
March when incumbent Ce-
linda Sawtelle, 59, is reelected
along with retired educator
Rhea Weiss, 80. The com-


mission votes Carmen
McGarry to her fourth year
as mayor and reelects Dan

New broom makes a clean sweep at city hall


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER
Deerfield Beach 2010
was the year city administra-
tors took a new broom and
cleaned up city hall. What
could have been a difficult
year morphed into months of
reorganization that appears to
have this city moving well.
With the coming of the
new year, the city commis-
sion fired City Manager
Mike Mahaney three years
into his contract. Upheaval
might have followed, but
Information Systems Director
Burgess Hanson, a nine-year
employee, was tapped to take
Mahaney's job on an interim
basis. It wasn't long before
commissioners offered him
the permanent position.
Early in the year, answering
concerns that the Westside
Businessmen Association
may have improperly used
HUD funds, Hanson urged
the commission to hire an
independent auditor to review
the Community Development
Division. A month later, the
Kessler Report was deliv-
ered. It suggested fraudulent
activity within the division
and after a more thorough
investigation by HUD of-
ficials, the ctay waskassessed

next big punch for Pompano

daunting Kessler report that
exposed major conflicts with
volunteer board members,

funding for groups in which

LBTS The election of two
new commissioners and the
subsequent firing ofthe town
manager and her assistant

of previous administrations.
Here are some of the year's
highlights .

Two incumbents and four
political newcomers filed as
candidates for the March 19
election. Mayor Roseann Min-
net faced a challenge from
businessman Joe Couriel. Scot

pension plan administrator,
and Christopher Vincent,
owner of aninterior contract-
ing firm, vied for the commis-
sion seat in District 2. Vice

Happy New Year from all of us at

The Pelican Newspaper
By Anne Siren
PUBLISHER

As we enter the 18th year of The Pelican, we are more excited than when
the newspaper first began. On that day, we didn't quite know how many to print,
so we started with 40,000. After a jillion calls about too many papers, we cut the
circulation significantly. We had a few fires. No injuries in this condo fire on the beach.
And we began to grow slowly, adding new writers, editors, sales staff and
delivery people. We have always had a great team.1
The names have changed, but all of us want to cover your events, news,
good times and bad ones. So the more you, the reader, pick up the phone or plug
in the email, the more we know about the communities. We are here. Please be a

Oakland Park Retro: city passes tough pain clinic law

but reneges on eliminating panhandling


By Judy Vik
PELICAN WRITER
Oakland Park City com-
missioners made news this
year by cracking down on
pain clinics and for attempt-
ing to get tough on roadside
panhandlers.
The panhandler ordinance
drew national attention partly
because it not only barred so-
liciting money from passers-

by, it also made it a crime to
make a donation. After pass-
ing the ordinance and then
being besieged by comments
pro and con, the commission
reversed its thinking and did
not pass it on second reading.
The commission had more
success with an ordinance
regulating pain clinics. After
more than a year working on
that issue, the amended code
restricts pain clinic locations


and requires clinics to meet
certain definitions and obtain
permits .
Oakland Park had about 20
pain clinics when staff and
the commission started their
work, according to Justin
Proffitt, Senior Planner. From
August 2008 to November
2009, the city experienced a
proliferation of clinics with
one opening every three days.
In that same period, 2.7 mil-
lion oxycodone pills were
dispensed within three city
ZIP codes.
Oakland Park now has eight
pain management climecs.
Between Jan. 1 and July 31,
301 arrests were made at the
clinics, Proffitt said. Problems
included prescription drug
tr ficing, impacts on p bic
and private parking spaces on
adjacent streets and proper-
ties, loitering by pain clinic


customers waiting in lines to
receive their prescriptions and
littering on adjacent streets
and private properties.
JANUARY
Commissioners in Oakland
Park unanimously passed an
ordinance providing for regis-
tration of abandoned proper-
ties in the city. According to
a report by Darrell Purchase,
Acting Code Enforcement
Manager, the thrust of the or-
dinance is to require mortgage
holders to inspect properties
that have gone into default
and register them with the city
on evidence of abandonment.
According to one website, the
city of Oakland Park had 426
foreclosures in 2009. That
com ared to 339 in 2008 and
121 in 2007. The number of
properties in default, or fore-
closure limbo, is far greater,
Purchase wrote.
According to Purchase,
unmaintained abandoned
properties quickly become
overgrown, harbor rats and
other vermin and become
threats to public health, safety
and welfare.

And then finding out you're pregnant.
That's what happened to Elba Silva. Diagnosed with a medulloblastoma brain tumor
and thyroid cancer, she undenvent surgery and intensive chemotherapy at a Broward

a high-risk proposition after chemo. Fortunately, she had our system-wide resources
on her side. Her oncologists coordinated care with Broward Health obstetricians and

how great everything is tumn-
ing out because of them."
Pompano Has Heart was
able to arrange for Baker to
meet with Carl Works, the
founder of Walk In The Light
Ministries Intemnational, Inc.
Works is a local builder who
has been to Haiti to assist with
projects there.
Works was in need of a
guide and interpreter who
knew Haiti and Baker was
able to provide those services
herself. An orphanage was just
what Works was looking to
help.
With financial support from
Works' ministry and Pom-
pano Has Heart, on Monday,
Dec. 6, Baker, Works, Derrick
Quant and Carl Isaiah Ross-
Works, flew to Haiti to begin
helping with the orphanage.
The 17 children at the or-
phanage, nine boys and eight
girls, ranging in age from 18
months to six years. There are
eight full and part-time staff
members plus 24/7 security
for the staff and children.
Steve Wolf is president of
Pompano Has Heart, now a
501-c-3, not-for-profit board.
He says 24/7 security is criti-
cal. "Once it is learned that
supplies are heading to a loca-
tion, supplies must be secured
from thieves."
Back in January, this group


knew two things: they wanted
to help and they knew how to
raise money.
They kicked off the fu~nd-
raiser at Citi Centre's art &
cultural show earlier this year.
They placed booths at the
Green Market, the Chamber's
Biz Expo and the Bean &
Pepper Jamboree. They wrote
their own checks.
And donations arrived.
Gwyn Leyes, a resident who
either leads or supports a laun-
dry list of volunteer groups
said when she heard about it,
she had good reason to join.
"It didn't start with me,"
said Leyes. "It began with
BSO Major William Knowles
and Mayor [Lamar] Fisher. I
admire and respect them both.
There was no way I could not
join. They inspire me and oth-
ers to do good works."
This January Works and his
team will bring mn two genera-
tors and hook them up so that
the orphanage with have some
electricity for lights, ceiling


that back with us.
"Some of the situations we
have seen are gut-wrenching,"
Works said. "We see children
sleeping on floors or dirt, ba-
bies walking the streets naked,
unattended and malnourished,
not to mention the stories of
children being sold or given
away because parents cannot
care for them. But we are now
attempting to make this or-
phanage a haven of hope and a
light to show the way for more
child rescue centers."
Pompano Has Heart is now
seeking funding and dona-
tions .
"WYe are in need of two
diesel generators, electrical
wiring and supplies and most
important, cash," said Wolf.
Anyone wishing to donate
to Pompano Has Heart can do
so by writing Pompano Has
Heart, 201 NW 39th Court,
Pompano Beach, FL 33056,
calling at 954-654-3757

them.
The van is needed to trans-
port them to school, get sup-
plies for the orphanage and
when needed, take them to the
medical center.
One child developed Chol-
era recently. Staff members
transported her to a clinic The
child is back at the orphanage
and is doing fine.
In the beginning several
ideas bounced around the
volunteer organization as to
how they could help. They
discussed supporting The
American Red Cross or even
how to help Haitian family
relatives of Pompano Beach
residents .
In the end, the group chose
the orphanage after Holly-
wood attorney, Sandra Duch-
enie-Baker, founder of the
International House of Hope,
a refuge for abandoned and/or
neglected children in Haiti,
heard about the effort.
"I read about Pompano Has
Heart ," Baker said, "And I
contacted them and attended
some of their meetings and
told them about the plight of
the children. I can't believe

In LHP, it's tasty time again Chamber's annual event is Jan. 18


By Judy Wilson
PELICAN WRITER

LHP The Lighthouse
Point Chamber of Commerce
is staging the 7th annual Taste
of Lighthouse Point Tuesday,
Jan. 18 and once again, expec-
tations are high.
"WYe always try to make
each year better than the one
before and this year I have a
great team," said Chamber
president Lucille Pignatero.
Her team has clear goals. Last
year, the event attracted 400
lovers of fine food and wine
to the Lighthouse Point Yacht
and Tennis Club and raised
over $30,000, money which
was returned to the commu-
nity in the form of scholar-
ships for students majoring in
business, Food for the Poor
and equipment for the fire
department. The year before,
proceeds bought computers
for the library.
The Taste started seven
years ago as a small event
which quickly took on major
proportions similar to the
Chamber itself which was
formed in 2003 by State Farm
Agent Michelle Greene and
a handful of business own-
ers who thought Lighthouse
Point's business community
should have its own Chamber.

president in June, now boasts

Mary Ann Trees honored at

ISle Casino Racing Park

By Frank Salive
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN

She is widely revered as an integral cog in the formation and
successful launch of the pari-mutuel harness track now known
as The Isle Casino Racing Pom-
pano Park, and it was a joyous
return for Mary Ann Trees to the
winner's circle during the Tues- 4
day evening, Dec. 28 program.
"I was the secretary and pretty -'
much the personal assistant to
Pompano's founder, Frederick o'
Van Lennep" Mary Ann ex-
plamned mna live trackside TV
interview after the race named in her honor. "It was a really
exciting and busy time after the property was purchased in the
early 1950's, more than ten years before the grandstand was
actually built" she recalled.
Among the notable harness racing personalities joining Mary
Ann Trees trackside were The Isle's resident Hall Of Fame
inductee John Berry, horseman Jay Sears and John Cashman of
the legendary Castleton Farms.
"Mary Ann is a little humble about it, but she was essentially
Mr. Van Lennep's right hand for almost 40 years" Cashman
said. "She was in the office across the street for close to ten
years before the Pompano grandstand was completed in 1964.
She has a tremendous business sense and a wonderful wit,
which as everyone knows is something that's really important
around the racetrack. In summary, Mr. Van Lennep was the
perfect gentleman and in equal measure, Mary Ann Trees the
perfect lady. Her contribution was really invaluable in terms of
getting Pompano Park built and opened" Cashman added.
"I really appreciate John's kind words" Trees said, just before
her superb wit shone through. "While I was working for Mr.
Van Lennep, I came close to tying a record" she stated with a
chuckle. "I was here for the tenures of seven different general
managers over the track's first 25 years ofhistory. With outlast-
ing that many GM's, I guess I came close to tying the record of
how many husbands Elizabeth Taylor has been through."

with respect and get the
business of the town done
correctly with a commission-
manager form of government'
in that order," Dodd said.
Dodd was appointed vice
mayor at the March 23 meet-
ing. He will serve for two
years-
APRIL
During a special meeting
Apn1l 20, town commission-
ers agreed to terminate Esther
Colon as town manager. The
vote was 4 tol1 with Com-
missioner Birute Clotter the
dissenter. Vice Mayor Stuart
Dodd made the motion to
terminate, and Commissioner
Scot Sasser seconded it.
Colon left with a severance
payout of $296,188 which
included unused vacation
and sick leave. She was hired
as town manager Apn1l 24'
2007 at an annual salary of
$146,743.
The commission named the
assistant town manager John
Olmnzock to be interim man-
ager. Six days later Olmnzock
was fired after he refused to
discuss Colon s severance
with individual commission-
ers or with town attorneys.


A severance payment of
$160,541, or one year's sal-
ary, was warranted, according
to the report.
JUNE
In June, commission-
ers learned that a Brolvard
County Circuit Court judge
had dismissed two counts of
a suit filed against the town
under the Bert J. Harris Act.
"It's wonderful. I think the
town dodged a bullet, but
we're not out of the woods
yet," Commissioner Chris
Vincent said, reacting to the
news .
Plaintiffs in the suit were
Palm Yacht & Beach Club,
Inc., James Edmondson, Del-
rado Inc. and Coastal Arms.
The suit claimed the town
owed the plaintiffs $21
million to compensate for
lost property values due to
the Harris Act which limits
building heights. Arguing for
dismissal of the case, attorney
Dan Abbott said none of the
four plaintiffs ever applied
See LBTS RETRO on page 21


The commission met in a
special session early April 26
to name a new interim manag-
er and after hearing from eight
candidates, chose Connie
Hoffmann, a former city man-
ager in Fort Lauderdale. The?
directed her to work with
town attorneys to launch an
inquiry into whether Colon's
severance payout of $296,188
was correctly calculated.
MAY
On May 11, the Town Com-
mission unanimously passed a
resolution appointing Con-
stance Hoffmann as interim
town manager and setting her
annual salary at $120,000.
Hoffmarm shortly reported
to the commission that Colon
had received $69,308 more
than she was entitled in her
final payout, according to
the inquiry Hoffmann and a
consultant conducted. Com-
missioners unanimously
authorized Hoffmann and the
town attorney to request retum
of the overpayments which
ivere discovered mn e areas
of accrued vacation leave,
accrued sick pay and deferred
compensation.

2010 echoes Dickens as 2010: The Best of times and the W~orst of times


By Christina Henley
BROKER/OHNER SOLID ROCK
REALTY SERVICES

From The Today Show to
CNN, from The Daily Show
to NPR, Real Estate has
never been on more people s
mmnds and lips than in 2010.
Yet with all these inquiring
mmnds wanting to know, this
foreclosure crisis has been
largely downplayed. By ne-
glecting to provide balanced
reporting on this $2 trillion
catastrophe, the national and
regional media have failed
to communicate the genuine
fear and helplessness facing
homeowners with troubled


by foreclosure. The lender
generally experiences a far
lower loss than that inflicted
by a foreclosure and buyers
find that short sales provide
real opportunities to purchase
properties at discounted
prices, many times even less
than foreclosures or bank
owned properties (REO).
Data acquired from the
MLS reveals Pompano Beach
saw 467 distressed sales to
date while Deerfield Beach
and Lighthouse Point saw 163
and 66 respectively.
As for the "best of times,"
2010 condominium, town-
house and single family home
sales in South Florida were
near 75,000 units topping
sales for 2009 and even the
boom year of 2006 per an ar-
ticle on HousingWire. Prices
are down. Interest rates are
down. Buying and investing
opportunities abound.
As Charles Dickens said in
A Tale of Two Cities "It was
the best of times, it was the
worst of times, it was the age
of wisdom, it was the age of
foolishness, it was the epoch
of belief, it was the epoch of
incredulity, it was the season
of Light, it was the season of
Darkness, it was the spring
of hope, it was the winter of
despair, we had everything
before us, we had nothing be-
fore us..." It will be what we
make it...the worst of times
or the best of times.

mortgages, or to
TOVeal the extraor-
dinary opportuni-
ties for buyers and
inve stores.

In these "worst ..
of times," Lend- .-=
ers will seize
more than 1 HE1
million homes in
foreclosure this year alone.
More than 2.2 million U.S.
mortgages are delinquent but
not yet in foreclosure, reports
LPS, a Florida based analytics
firm. "Who owns the note"
and "robo-signing" WILL
play a role in 2011 whether
the media covers it or not.


800,000", far short of 3 to 4
million. Many homeowners
even found themselves in the
midst of foreclosure WHILE
they were waiting for a modi-
fication.
While many homeowners
want to stay in their home this
may prove impossible. Short
sales seem to present a bright
side for the parties involved
especially for homeowners
seeking to avoid foreclosure.
The U.S. Treasury in 2010 re-
ported an increase of 126.5%
in new short sales, making
short sales the fastest-growing
distressed property solution
in the industry. Fitch Ratings
recently released a report
forecasting that lenders would
be increasing their short sale
volume in 2011.
A short sale is when lender
agrees to allow a property
to be sold for less than the
outstanding balance of the
mortgage. The owner receives
no profit from the sale but
long term impact on their
credit rating is far less than
the permanent scars inflicted


=RealtyTrac
.reports Florida
posted the nation's
third highest state
foreclosure rate for
the fourth consecu-
tive quarter, with
one in every 56
.EY housing units re-
ceiving a foreclosure
filing. Even more astound-
ing is that 49.6% of Florida
mortgages are underwater or
near underwater according to
CoreLogic's Q3 report.
The Federal Government's
loan modification program
(HAMP), launched in March
2009, was originally expected
to save 3 to 4 million homes
from foreclosure. A Housing-
Wire article states the actual
results are "underwhelming"
the Congressional Oversight
Panel. I am sure most hom-
eowners who have attempted a
modification share this senti-
ment. As of September 30,
2010, only 519,000 loans have
been modified. The forecast
has been adjusted to "up to

DECEMBER
Residents in the south end
of town can expect to see
increases in their sewer rates
in February.
Commissioners adopted
the rate structure charged
by Pompano Beach which
provided sewer service to the


north end of town. Second
reading of the ordinance and
a public hearing will be at 7
p.m. Jan. 25.
Sewer rates for the town-
owned system have not been
covering the cost of providing
the service, Hoffmann told
commissioners, and the
deficits have been covered by
the town's reserve fund.


commission informed of the
contractor's non-compliance
with the contract, Hoffmann
said. Commissioners decided
to re-negotiate the contract
'vith GCRA, a non-profit
agency dedicated to restoring
coral reefs. The agency is in
breach of the current contract
after not meeting some
deadlines and by changing the
original plans.
The town filed suit against
fired town manager Esther
Colon in July to collect
$69,308 in severance pa)
mistakenly paid to her. After
mediation, commissioners
unanimously agreed to
settle the dispute with Colon
for $43,215 saying the>
would "prefer to enter into
a compromise to avoid the
uncertainties and expense of
further proceedings." Colon
deemed the severance payments
were incorrect and asserted she
had actionable employment
claims against the town.
AUGUST
On Aug. 25, commissioners
approved an agreement with
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
Community Performing Arts
Center, Inc., or CPAC, to
present a series of three plays.
In turn, the town will provide
$1,000 in financial assistance
and other help. The vote was 4


to 1, Mayor Roseann Minnet
dissenting .
SEPTEMBER
Commissioners
unanimously approved a
new investment policy that
removed $1.8 million in
investment funds from non-
interest bearing accounts.
Some commissioners
expressed dismay with the
previous policy. Doug Haag,
Acting Budget/Finance
Director, said the current
policy has been in place since
2001.The new plan is "a very,
very conservative policy,"
including U.S. government
securities and love risk money
market funds, Haa said.
Commissioners managed to
keep the tax rate steady during
a final budget hearing Sept.
27. The vote was unanimous
to maintain the current 3.999
millag rate and to set the
annual o eratin bud et at
$15.2 million, down two
percent from 2009. The town
faced a $700,000 shortfall
because of a decline in
property tax revenues
Constance Hoffmann,
interim town manager for the
past five months, is now town
manager. Commissioners
unanimously approved a
three-vear contract at a annual
salary of $160,000 on Sept.

an individual panhandhing,
soliciting or begging.
"This is framed as a traffic
problem, but this is a human
problem you're dealing
with," said Laura Hansen,
CEO of the Coalition to End
Homelessness in Broward
County.

If you are just beginning

of the Department of
Transportation, ground for
the flyover was broken in
April. Around the same time,
the Metropolitan Planning
Organization revealed it ma)
locate a Flonida East Coast
Railway Station at Hillsboro
Boulevard.
A road that got more than
its share of attention, the "S
curve on A1A, was given
another in-depth look by
consultants hoping to reduce
beach traffic congestion.


After many months, their
recommendation came back
to make no major changes
because of the cost. This was
the second major study of the
"S" curve in the last decade.
A road that didn't get
finished in 2010 as promised
is the Hillsboro Boulevard
streetscape from US 1 to
A1A. Com letion of this CRA
project awaits Florida Power
and Light Co. crews who must
bury the power lines.
Down the street, the
remodel of the Cove Shopping
Center Parking Lot did begin
after two years of meetings
with the stakeholders and
consultants. At the last minute,
merchants were so concerned
that the construction would
destroy their businesses it
appeared the commission
'vould pull their support of
the improvement. Last-mmnute


alterations to the schedule
mollified the merchants and
the project proceeded with
phase 1 completed earlier this
month. For the record, most of
the stakeholders are pleased
with the result.
Movement on the $3 million
redesign ofthe fishing pier
entrance, restaurant and bait
shop was stalled in June when
commissioners decided they
wanted the project to meet
the highest LEED standards.
Further investigation revealed
that the pier's location and
other factors would make it
difficult to eamn that rating,
but the contract was redrawn
so that as much 'green' as
possible will be put into the
structures.
A few more highlights:
The county will build two
docks with Brolvard Boating

Deer Creek resident Karen New-
combe found this grey and white
female cat Dec.27 lying alongside
SE 10 Street in Deerfield Beach.
She had been hit by a car and has
suffered considerable trauma, but
Newcombe says she is extremely
friendly and likes to cuddle. New-
come took her to an emergency
animal clinic but it is not certain
she will recover, Newcombe said.
If she does, and if her owners are
not found, she will need a home.
Flyers resulted in a number of
calls, but in each case, not from
this cat's owner. "I think she must

said. "She is well fed and clearly

commission has hired outside
counsel to advise them on
how to remove her.
In the fall, both
Commissioner Sylvia Poitier
and Vice Mayor Joe Miller
announce they will seek
reelection on March 8.
In November, the city's


first Green Market opens.
The Sunday morning street
fair is in Sullivan Park on the
Intracoastal Waterway. The
first week is a huge success.
Subsequently, some vendors
pull out, but city oilicials say
they are working to improve
the venue.


Owners of the Tam
O'Shanter Golf Course offer
the city 80 acres for public
parks in return for a change in
land use that would allow 500
living units on the remaining
20 acres. While city officials
seem amenable, residents
of Crystal Lake vigorously
oppose both the multi-family
development and the park.
Seekmng compromise, Ralph
Little who represents the
investment group, suggests
all 100 acres be developed as
a memorial park/cemetery,
a plan that most people in
Crystal Lake prefer. But
city commissioners have
another concept. Citing a
Broward County preference,


they ask Little to split his
acreage in half, 50 acres for
public recreation, 50 for hiS
memorial park. The developer
agrees and unless other
agencies refuse the land use
change, the city will receive
more land than is contained
in all the other local parks
combined.
In October, Mayor Peggy
Noland asked Dist. 2
commissioner Sylvia Poitier
to resign her seat based on
information uncovered mna
Kessler Report that indicates
Poitier voted Community
