Along with the land grant, the property owners, Old Saybrook Golf Capital, agreed to give the city $250,000 for cleanup of the site, formerly the Tam OShanter Golf Course on NW 45 Street.

2 The PelicanFriday, October 21, 2011 By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach The challenge of running this citys green market has been undertaken by the Deer eld Beach Cultural Committee. The location has been moved to the Cove Shopping Center, a business plan has been developed and each market day will have a special theme. Cultural Committee Chair Judi Stanich said the emphasis will be on bringing in vendors of locally grown and organic produce and greenish products. The committee has been given $10,000 in Green market gets new location, special themes and emphasis on local goodsseed money by the Community Redevelopment Agency. Last year, a private company managed the citys rst green market held at Sullivan Park. Results were less than successful. Stanich said resident Sally Potter lobbied hard for the Cultural Committee to be given the project. We thought someone local should be given the chance, Stanich said. The eight green markets will be held on the second and fourth Sundays in January, February and March with a kickoff Sunday, Dec. 4, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The seasonopener will feature holiday music and items appropriate to the season. Sunday, Jan. 8, the market will promote a health and wellness theme with a nod toward New Years resolutions. January 22 the market will feature chefs from Publix Aprons, the Fort Lauderdale Culinary Institute and vendors cooking their specialties. Feb.12, the market celebrates Sweethearts Day with candy vendors, romantic music and poetry readings. An orchid show will be held at the Feb. 26 market and the Deer eld Beach Orchid Society will sell orchids and orchid supplies. Theme for the March 11 market is Get to know Deereld Beach and local civic organizations will be given booths and the opportunity to show off their good works. March 25 will be pet day with participation by local animal shelters and an Easter Parade for pets with prizes[for the best pet Easter bonnets. The nal green market April 1 will focus on the restaurants in the Cove with an around-the-world tasting experience. Standich said green market customers will be encouraged to submit recipes for a cookbook to be sold at the end of the season. It wont be fancy, but it could start a tradition, she said.

The Pelican 3 Friday, October 21, 2011 By Aleese KopfPELICAN WRITERPompano Beach City commissioners have repealed an agreement with a rental apartment developer freeing up $1 million to rehab foreclosed and abandoned homes. The Cornerstone Group had been allotted $2 million to build Captiva Club, a rental project on Dixie Highway. But a year passed with no construction and last month, the commission voted 3-2 to make the funds, taken from the Neighborhood Stabiliza-City retrieves $1 million from Captiva Cove to restore foreclosed homestion Program, or NSP, available for restoring foreclosed homes. Foreclosures are becoming widespread in this city. Once vibrant streets have become ghost towns, said a representative from the Pompano Beach Highlands Civic Improvement Association. Long-time homeowners have disappeared overnight. The Highlands suffers the highest foreclosure rate in the city, 12 percent. Other neighborhoods like Cresthaven and Kendall Green are in similar situations. I have two houses on my street empty, said Ruth Arnold, a Pompano Beach realtor who lives in Kendall Green. The neighborhood itself has deteriorated to the point you cant hardly stand to drive through it anymore. Commissioner Charlotte Burrie was the rst commissioner to feel that the NSP funding should be rescinded. This money right now is sitting there doing nothing and it needs to get back out on to the street to the single-family homes because thats what it was really for, Burrie said then. The city originally received $4.7 million in the rst round of NSP funding and an additional third round of about $1.5 million. With the money, the city purchases foreclosed homes, renovates them and sells them back to the public at an affordable price. The city does not pro t from the sale. Once a home is sold, the money from the sale is recycled back into the NSP fund for other housing projects. According to city of cials, 27 properties have been acquired through NSP funds and 20 have been sold. The majority of the homes purchased were in District 2. To be eligible to buy a home, residents cannot currently own property, must be American citizens and make no more than 120 percent of the median Broward County household income. Several members of the public spoke in favor of seeing the NSP funds go back into their neighborhoods. See CAPTIVA COVE on page 20

4 The PelicanFriday, October 21, 2011 By Aleese KopfPELICAN WRITER Pompano Beach McNab Road, Hammondville Road, Blanche Ely Avenue in addition to being streets they all have one important trait in common history. Sometimes just street names can be the best reference to history, said Dan Hobby, author of recently published, Pompano Beach: A History of Pioneers and Progress. The McNab brothers, who came to Pompano Beach in the early part of the 20th century, became major farmers and civic leaders in the community. Hiram Hammon, an early farmer, was one of the first to farm the Everglades. According to Hobby, the road his trucks used to take produce to market was named Hammon Farm Road, but because of typos, became Hammond Road and eventually Hammondville Road. Hobby discussed his book recently at the Broward County Historical Commission as part of the commissions Brown Bag Historical Lunch Program. He said the goal was to create a more nuanced view of how Pompano got to be the way it was and recognize the many people and factors that contributed to its development. What I try to do in this book is treat the community as a single community, Hobby said. Readers will see how Pompano grew from a primitive farm town to the modern city it is today. He said the city began to take shape in the 1920s, acquiring electric, water and fire services and developing banks, hotels, schools and other necessities.Hobbys history of Pompano Beach is a tale of old Florida grown up Step into history . .What: Sample-McDougald House bene t When: Oct. 27, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Where: Caps Place Island Restaurant, Meet the captain at Caps Place launch site, 2765 NE 28 Ct., Lighthouse Point, to motor over to the historic restaurant Cost: $50 per person, includes one drink, food, music, raf es and a look at this famous restaurant.[Make checks payable to Sample-McDougald House.

The Pelican 5 Friday, October 21, 2011 By Anne SirenPELICAN STAFFWhen Corey Alston was handing out candy to get votes for class president of Blanche Ely High School, he probably took his rst step into politics. He later was appointed as a student representative to the Broward County School Board where his voice represented the concerns of his high school peers. This week Alston announced he is seeking the District 5 seat on the school board in the August 2012 election. The district covers central Broward County and includes Blanche Ely and Dillard High schools in Pompano Beach, and schools in Lauderhill, where he lives, North Lauderdale, Lauderdale Lakes, Plantation and Wilton Mavnors. While in high school, Alston served as Mayor for a Day at the annual Pompano Beach Student Government Day. After graduating high school in 2002, Alston studied at Florida A & M where he earned a B.A. and MBA in business. Presently he serves as chief of staff for County Commissioner Barbara Sharief, District 8. He is also a member of the board of trustees for Florida A & M. While Alston says he is still on a listening tour to hear concerns of the residents regarding schools, he says the board needs a fresh voice with new ideas. Ben Williams, former Dillard High School principal, is the current board member for District 5.Ely grad sets cap for school board seat SightingsA local calendar for events, meetings and more in North Broward County.

NeubergerPELICAN STAFFIn 1999, the Pelican wrote a Making a Difference story about Lucy Esposito because she had just nished 25 years of volunteering at the Pompano Beach Main Public Library. She smiles and reminisces saying I was there every morning at 8:30 and often stayed until one or two in the afternoon. They treated me like staff, and I loved every minute of my time in the library. The Pelican lost touch with Lucy until she called just a week or so ago to tell us that she had turned 100 years old. Asked how she celebrated, she said, I entertained 50 guests for lunch at Brooks Restaurant in Deer eld Beach. My daughter and her family came from Chicago for the occasion. My son Kenneth and his wife Susan who have been married 42 years came from Key West. It was lovely. And I have a picture showing four generations of us who were present. Chatting with her over a cup of soup at Nelsons Diner on Cypress Boulevard in Pompano Beach, this amazing lady talked about her current lifestyle. Well, I have lunch here with friends two or three times a week. I just walk over after a morning of exercise and hanging out at our pool. I still live independently, but I do have help with some of the things that are now hard for me to do. I have wonderful friends in the building and they really look out for me. Continuing, she adds, Can you believe I had a second hip surgery just a year and a half ago, and Im ne. They kept me in the hospital for ten days and worked me hard in physical therapy so that I would be able to come home and get up to my second oor apartment. I still walk the stairs every day. Its good exercise. Asked for her formula for good health and longevity, she shrugged and said, Keep active. Exercise like I do and enjoy each day. Its a gift. Congratulations Lucy and you keep on keeping on! Lucy Esposito celebrates 100th birthday with family and friends FOUR GENERATIONS CELEBRATELucy Esposito with her daughter, Karen Minturn, granddaughter,Lucy Minturn and 2-year old great granddaughter Harriet Minturn. Elsa Hoffmann (r) was 104 years old on Tuesday, but her birthday celebrations began early and were plentiful. Friday, her friend Audrey Theobald (l),hosted a card party in her honor at the Lighthouse Point Yacht Club. Hoffmann, of Hillsboro Beach, is an avid card player and the organizer of a bridge club at the Deer eld Beach Country Club. Her friends say it is not her age that makes her so special, but her alert mind and a personality that is always ready for a good time. Hoffmann has made national news on several occasions, most notably when she was interviewed for a Barbara Walters special on centenarians. This week, she said she is feeling ne, like my batteries have been recharged.

Republicans to meet Call to place your classi ed ad By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeerfield Beach Deerfield Beach Housing Authority Executive Director Pam Davis has responded to a lengthy questionnaire as requested by new board commissioner Michael Weiss and the board will hold a special meeting Friday, Oct. 28, 9 a.m. to examine Weisss questions and Daviss replies. In September, Weiss, at his first board meeting, presented Davis with a 16page document he titled A Publics Right to Know and asked for answers to about 70 questions ranging from procurement issues to legal services to specific vendors. Wednesday, during a regular meeting of the Authority Commission, Commissioner Caryl Berner asked Weiss, How can you ask so many questions after such a short time on the board? The way you went about this is not correct. Commissioner Joan Maurice, also new to the board, said I think we all know where these questions came from, referring to blogger Chaz Stevens who has been highly critical of Davis and her staff. I would love to put this to sleep. Board Chair Keith Emory concurred saying, I want to move on to be finished with it. Emory added that the October 28 meeting would be over by 12 (noon) or before. Also under review this week by the Housing Authority Board was a move by Commissioner Berner to make the Authoritys buildings smoke-free. Davis said she would survey the residents of Stanley Terrace and The Palms as to their feelings. Making a change in the rules will require some time, Davis said. A waiting period of 60 to 90 days is required for lease changes and the Department of Housing and Urban Development recommends one year. There are also other legalities involved, Davis said. She admitted that residents of Stanley Terrace are living with a lot of second-hand smoke which travels through the air conditioning vents. Davis said there is only one housing authority in Florida that has established smoke-free residences. Berner said smoke-free is the wave of the future a nice positive thing.DBHA sets special session to discuss lengthy questionnaire

There have been 66 presidents to date. Twelve of them are still living and all 12 were in attendance at the luncheon. Novice Balazs, a Pompano native, smiled and explained that she was one-year-old when her parents moved to Pompano Beach in 1921. Her maiden name was McClellan and she is the sister of Sterling McClellan for whom this post is named. She says, My brother Sterling was the only Pompano boy killed in action in WW11. Im sure thats why this post was named after him. I have been a member of this unit since it began. She and Karneol are old friends. They can thrill history buffs with their stories about life in Pompano Beach in the mid 1900s.Marion BroadheadCurrently serving as Post Chaplain, this humble lady has a record of dedication that is unequaled in the history of Post 142.

Though this is a pioneer idea in South Florida, it is being used with great success around the world according to Eddie Swart, owner and operator of Bin Cleaning Service. Swart, with a clipped English accent, arrived seven months ago from Capetown, South Africa and headed straight to Wilton Manors to join his sons, their wives and one grandchild. He says, My sons have been here for 11 years. One is a stock broker and Affordable Bin Cleaning Service eliminates odors and repels diseased maggots, ies and rodents from trash cansEddie Swarts Bin Cleaning Service will clean trash cans the days they are emptied, eliminating foul odors and encrusted grime that attracts maggots, ies, rodents and other disease carriers.

They and my daughter-in-law have helped me to launch my new business. I quickly realized there is a need here for my business because of heat, humidity and the easy access unwanted creatures have to trash. Bin Cleaning Service schedules curb side cleaning soon after and always on the same day as garbage pick up to protect homes, families and neighborhoods from foul smelling garbage cans and the health hazards they invite. A customized van with a uniquely designed cleaning unit has a hydraulic lift which places each of the in use trash cans through a high pressure washing mechanism which rotates at high speed, blasting all debris off the container. The special formulated eco-friendly solution and hot water will remove almost 99 percent of common bacteria from the surface of the container. Water is put through an 11 stage ltration system where it is recycled and reused. Trash cans are returned fresh, clean, free of bacteria, dried and sealed. Swart says, This go green clean home service removes all chemicals, waste materials and bacteria from trash bins without contaminating the ground surfaces close to your home.

Every year, we honor two graduates from the four high schools in the area.Roz Karneol remembersMy husband, Herman, was the Post Commander when we began this auxiliary so many years ago. I was a charter member and a past president. Back then we were a smaller group and every one of us was very involved. We wanted to be recognized as a great service organization that worked for the community and the returning veterans. Sterling, who was killed in WW 11, was the son of a very well known and much loved physician Dr. George McClellan. He was also the brother of my good friend, Novice. I was very active in this Post for years, but then there were more and more options and I got involved in other things. I am honored to be a lifetime member. Then she reminisced for a moment. I came to Pompano from Boston on November 22, 1944 to meet Hermans parents and I never went back home. Herman and I were married here and I was immediately welcomed and accepted into the local community as Hermans wife. She laughs and says, Nobody held it against me for being a big city girl from Boston. City Commissioner Charlotte Burrie is a proud member of this auxiliary and said she was so pleased to be part of the event that honored these two women. As was Ruth VanDerWalt, a past president and active member for 25 years, who said, Ive enjoyed both the social and charitable things we do especially for veterans and their families. Thank you ladies of the Sterling McClellan American Legion Auxiliary Post 142 for service to the community and the veterans who have returned to us.
