They are among the estimated 10 million children in third world countries born with cleft lips and/or cleft palates and other deformities. Most are doomed to a lifetime of ridicule. A few years ago when Dr. W. Geoffrey Williams, traveled to Ho Chi What else can you do? asks this physician who travels the world to repair cleft lips, palatesMinh City with a medical team, he was greeted with more than 200 mothers holding their babies and asking him repair their palates or lips. Of the 200 children, Dr. Williams and his team treated less than 30. He says that on the ight home to America, the lights came on. He decided then to spend all of his vacation time helping these children. His mother Beverly Williams says, It soon turned into a lifetime passion. Dr. Williams had honed his skills in plastic and reconstructive surgery since his graduation from medical school in Utah, more study at the University of Vanderbilt, a residency at the University of Texas and then a trip to Taiwan where there are an abundance of children with these birth defects.. Today, Dr. Williams devotes all of his professional time helping children See FOUNDATION on page 5By Anne SirenPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors The ink is still wet on most city budgets, and while no one expects a better year in 2012, this city probably saved its taxpayers at least $100,000 on Tuesday. Taking advantage of low interest rates, Wilton Manors commissioners gave their approvals to re nance the remaining $1.4 million of its 1999 municipal bond for parks development, lowering the rate from 4.378 percent to 2.13 percent. The city had sent out proposals to local banks for re nancing bids earlier this year. SunTrust bank offered the lowest rate. Final approval for the re nancing is expected at the Nov. 22 meeting. Said Assistant Finance Director Bob Mays, This was the time to do it. The rates have never been so low. Following the decision, of cials also agreed to combine two loans with the same bank to replace the citys aging lift station and purchase property to provide more parking facilities at the northern end of the city. The 2.74 percent loan is for 15 years. This lift station is the main station for all city sewage to be dispensed into pipes leading to Fort Lauderdale water plants, said Mays. The station is 40 years old and replacement is crucial. Mays added that there is a high demand and a short supply for parkingThe rst team made it into the ocean with big hopes, but dangerous currents halted the event.

2 The PelicanFriday, October 28, 2011 By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach As the petition drive to repeal the 10 percent public service tax continues, residents are seeing the charge on their utility bills for the rst time. Depending on billing cycles, most residents will pay the new tax for days in September although it did not go into effect until Oct. 1. City Manager Burgess Hansons of ce issued a statement this week citing a Florida Statute as justi cation for levying the tax prior to Oct. 1. Under Florida State Statute 166.233, it is clear that the billing date does not mean the Group continues to collect names to repeal of utility tax billing cycle. Therefore the rst billing in October may include that of September since it is part of the October billing. Saying he didnt see it as a problem, the manager went on to say, we are reviewing what option the city may take if in fact we deem it to be an issue. Members of the Rescind Unfair Tax committee were quick to note that September days were included on their bills. Century Village resident Caryl Berners billing cycle went from September 14 to October 13. She was one of the rst to call city hall.

The Pelican 3 Friday, October 28, 2011 By Judy VikPELICAN WRITERLBTS Commissioners heard the pleas of the 85-year-old son of a pioneer family and agreed to begin the process of restoring the Friedt name to the towns park. Ted Friedt, the younger of two sons of the late Glenn and Lucy Friedt Sr. said his parents did many wonderful things for the town after their move here in 1938.The Friedt name will again be commemorated at the town park pioneering family made many contributionsYou wouldnt be sitting up there on the dais if my father hadnt gone to Tallahassee in 1947 to secure a new charter for the town after it went bankrupt, he told commissioners. Ted said his family wasnt looking for glory or notoriety. But he said, The wrong that former mayor Oliver Parker did to the Friedt family has to be corrected. Parker was mayor when the name of the park just west of town hall was changed from Friedt Park and Recreation Center to Municipal Park in January 2005. Thats when the commission unanimously approved the change. The Friedts donated $7,500 in 1955 for the improvement and equipment of the park and recreational facilities in LBTS. To show their gratitude, the commission approved an ordinance naming the park for them. In 2005, after improvements were made to the park, the commission rescinded the previous ordinance and passed another to not only honor the Friedt family but other citizens, as well. Thats when Friedt Park and Recreation Center was renamed Municipal Park. The playground area was named Friedt Family Playground, the soccer eld Fire ghters Field, the tennis courts Sylvia Neely Tennis Courts and the bocce courts Michael S. Spicola Courts. A plaque dedicating the tennis courts in memory of Neely and a sign in memory of Spicola are in the park. There is no signage at the playground or soccer eld. Friedt told commissioners that he received a call from Parker when the park was being improved. He said they had to take the name down, but it would be up again when construction was nished, he said.See FRIEDT on page 4

4 The PelicanFriday, October 28, 2011 Later Parker told him the park couldnt be named for a private citizen because the town had received public funds for improvements. A plaque at the site notes that funding for improvements came from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection through the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program and from the town. Its a tragedy what was done, Friedt told commissioners. The park was named for my father and mother because they had done a great number of things since 1938. Its something I want to correct before I die. Im 85. Richard Huff Jr. of Clearwater, a great-grandson of Friedt Sr. and grandson of Ted, wrote to Mayor Roseann Minnet in August requesting that the Friedt name be restored to the park. He noted that after World War II, when the town lost its charter and reverted to the county, Glenn Sr. nanced a charter committee, organized the formation of a charter and took the charter to Tallahassee to be led. Huff said he wasnt asking that other plaques and names be removed, only that the name Friedt Park be properly and prominently displayed once again, honoring the family that created the park and played such a large role in the development of your town. In another letter to the town, Huff said while he understands the park needs capital from time to time for improvements, I dont believe future donations should decrease the importance of donations made previously. Names of original benefactors should be left standing. I truly see this as a dotherightthing issue for the town. In order to attract future generosity for improvement, donors will want to know that if the town provides naming rights, those rights wont be extinguished with the changing tides of new elected ofcials and new donors. Commissioners agreed the Friedt name should be restored to the park. I apologize that your name was taken off the park, said Vice Mayor Stuart Dodd. Im honored to move to rename it. I still call it Friedt Park, so there you go, Minnet said. She said she was for correcting a wrong and making it right. Your family has done a lot for this town, said Commissioner Birute Ann Clottey. This is history. We shouldnt go around changing names. Friedt said he was pleased. My whole family will be proud, he said. FriedtContinued from page 3 p.m. to turn in the signatures and precinct numbers of 1,234 voters who wish the tax to be repealed by the commission. An initial certi cation of the rescind petitions showed the committee, headed by former mayor Jean Robb, fell short due chie y to wrong precinct numbers. Robb contends the precinct maps she received from the city were defective and inadequate. She also contends that since the Florida Election Code and other cities do not require the voters precinct number on issue petitions, the Deer eld Beach City Clerk should not have given the Broward County Of ce of Elections the directive requiring it. This week, City Attorney Andy Maurodis said the city clerks position in the matter is backed by the City Charter, chapter 7.05 and 7.07. The supervisors of ce had offered to re-examine all the petitions but required that Robbs cease collecting names. Robb refused to halt her efforts and the time it would take to recertify the 2,894 names already collected could put her past the November 2 deadline. Needed to force an election are 4,128 signatures of registered voters.Utility taxContinued from page 2

He spent most of his savings in the beginning, but as news got out regarding his work, donations came in allowing him to continue at a full pace. He formed the International Childrens Surgical Foundation, or ICSF, to continue his work. Media recognition followed in The Readers Digest and AP reports. When the news hit Joe Usman, a Pompano Beach contractor, he brought it to his Pompano Beach Rotary Club. A native of Pakistan, Usman wanted to support the medical team in his former country. When he learned that there were security issues there and that spotlighting these teams could cause them problems, he agreed to pour his time into the upcoming ICSF tour in the Phillippines. Children are children wherever they are, Usman says. In America, they operate on these problems at birth. In third world countries, these children are suffering all of their lives. In some cases their parents kill them, but if they live, they are stigmatized forever. Usman and fellow Rotarian Joanne Nelson decided to do something to help Dr. Williams. They, along with other Rotarians, are hosting a fundraiser, Nov. 3 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Palm Aire Business Center hoping to raise $25,000, enough to cover surgery for 40 children. Says Dr. Williams, who serves as secretary and treasurer of ICSF, All of us are volunteers. All donations go directly to training other physicians and underwriting surgery for these children. To help this mission, send donations to Rotary Fund of Pompano Beach, a 501c3 Charity, to: Rotary Fund, P.O. Box 94, Pompano Beach, FL 33061. For more information about Rotary or ICSF, call 954-786-3274. The child here waits for surgery with a family member. While the defect has an obvious appearance, cleft lips and palates also cause problems with feeding and speech. According to public health records, about one in 2,500 babies are born with cleft lips and palates.

We raised over $1,000 to bene t breast cancer research. It will legislation to ensure the safety of our youngest children To the editor, The well being of our youngest children, those in the Nursery to Pre-K age groups, are of concern to me. It is said that we need to take care of our children, to educate them and to do our utmost to ensure their health and safety. In fact, our government recently set aside $5 billion in an effort to make sure that we achieve these goals. I agree that it is extremely important that we provide an excellent education for our children taking into consideration their varied needs and differences. I also agree that we need to provide them with quali ed teachers, who are patient, compassionate and understanding. However, as important as their education is, we must not place any less emphasis on the safety measures that keep them free from harm. Too often, our childrens safety is thought of as a given by some and an afterthought by others. The caregivers that were responsible for a little girls death when they forgot her on a school bus and left her to die in the Florida heat, were given a sentence that consisted of no jail time whatsoever and 10 years probation! Ten years for a little girls life? How is that justice? That childs life could have been saved if they had simply counted the number of children or taken roll call, or climbed back into the bus to see of everyone had gotten out. Or better yet, put one teacher on the bus until all the children got off and then double checked again. As an early childhood educator myself, I wholly understand that dealing with lots of children can be stressful, and even overwhelming. Still, I fail to understand why extra safety measures are not taken to ensure deadly situations do not occur. Is it too much to ask that safety precautions are among the most important priorities of our childrens caregivers? Why isnt it mandatory that they follow certain procedures and be ned or, in extreme circumstances, jailed it they fail to do so? There should be state and federal laws that require our childrens safety to remain one of our paramount concerns. We need to make our caregivers accountable in every aspect of our childrens care. This is not a dif cult or outrageous request. It is, in fact, the least we owe our children. The No Child Left Behind Act should be taken to heart literally so that we can indeed say that no child has been left behind. Frederica M. Brown-Hicks Broward County ethics code is not necessaryBy Anne SirenPUBLISHERCorruption and politics have been longtime friends. Thats why we have a strong code of ethics at the state level. Its a guide to remind of cials that those irresistible offers are often wrong. Fact is, we really dont know where our ethics are until our ethics are challenged. So why did the county decide to add another code? Codes dont make people ethical. Just look at the rash of Broward politicians sent to jail in the past ten years. But this code has gone too far by limiting possible candidates by their professions. Lawyers lost in the rst round because of the nature of their jobs. One section of the new code, which goes into effect Jan. 2, prohibits public of cials from lobbying. This is ridiculous. There are thousands of attorneys who must lobby for their clients regarding land-use, zone variances and other city, county and state codes. And that includes elected of cials like Gary Resnick in Wilton Manors. We are sure Mayor Resnick works solidly under the state code of ethics which keeps him and other elected of cials keenly aware of con icts of interests and other actions that could be determined as corrupt. The state code works. The state code was effective enough to boot out several corrupt of cials from 2009 to 2011. Voters in Wilton Manors, the one city that has decided to stand up against this code, should support Tuesdays vote for a referendum that allows the public of cials and board members to continue to keep their positions under the state ethics code and not the countys foolish one. On Jan. 31, they will be asked to support the state code as part of the city charter. We hope they do.By Anne SirenPUBLISHERWhy are we tip-toeing around Club Cinema, 3251 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach when according to BSO, several arrests, involving drugs, have been made on the property and inside the club. BSO records show that from May through September, re-rescue was called to the club for 20 individuals, 11 of them under age 18. In the past year, BSO answered 127 calls from the club, 14 of which involved narcotics and 15 for partygoers who had passed out, overdosed or were having seizures. Imagine how long any of us could keep our own children if BSO had found them in this condition even once. When interviewed on Chanel 7, an employee of the club, Cory Weisman, called the club a safe place. He was also quoted as saying, We operate under everything that is morally and legally correct for the safety of the children as if they were our own. Commissioner Charlotte Burrie reported that the teens are only served water. As to the dress code, Burrie asks if we want to be the moral police. No, we dont. But there appears to be enough crime to close the place down legally without going into any moral issues. Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher calls the Club issue a life-safety issue. One day we will lose a life, he said. How long do we wait.

NeubergerPELICAN STAFFLast years event was such a success that the Original Florida Follies did a repeat only this year they gave even more money to furnish even more children with $150 wardrobes each on October 2 and again on Oct. 9. Follies President, Doug Gorab says, We went shopping with 200 children each time from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the JCPenney store in City Centre. They opened the store these special hours twice just for us and we really appreciated their enthusiastic cooperation. Thirty employees volunteered their Original Florida Follies contribute $60,000 to provide 400 needy children with wardrobes at JCPenneytime. Store Manager, Judy Arduser and Jonatan Irizarry, supervisor of the childrens department, worked very hard to create successful events and both were in the store by 5:30 a.m. each Sunday to be sure everything went well. Jonatan said, JCPenney is thrilled that the Follies chose to return to our store for their giveaway so that we too can help children in need. The Follies theme is We love and help children, and they prove it with their generosity to children every year. Last year they kicked up their heels for seven performances, raising almost $100,000 through ticket sales and donations. Every bit of that money is going to childrens charities. In addition to the $60,000 designated to provide wardrobes for needy children, they are contributing an additional $30,000 to childrens charities. The lucky children bene ting from the generosity of the Follies are targeted as the most in-need by the staffs of three childrens facilities. They are the Florence Fuller Child Development Center in Boca Raton, the Childrens Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Fort Lauderdale and The Family Center in Plantation. Moms, dads and their children from newborns to age 12 arrived at JCPenney in the Citi Centre to be greeted by Hard working team: Jonatan Irizarry, JCPenny supervisor of the childrens department, paused for a picture with Doug Gorab and Cathy Dooley, of the Follies.

8 The PelicanFriday, October 28, 2011 Island Water Sports sale raises money for cancer patient, jeans for homelessDeer eld Beach, FL: Island Water Sports hosted its rst annual Daytime Radness on Saturday, Oct. 11, 12-hour event attended by an estimated 6,000 people. The event helped raise money for local and national charities including: Grind for Life Helping People with Cancer, the Karen Rice Bene t and Give Jeans a Chance. A portion of the proceeds from the sale was donated to defray medical expenses for Karen Rice, a local advertising representative suffering from cancer who is seeking treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Through store and raf e ticket sales, more than $5,500 was raised. Throughout the day, Island Water Sports held a denim drive in partnership with the National Coalition for the Homeless and Volcoms Give Back Series. More than 350 pair of jeans were collected and then donated to the Broward Partnership for the Homeless. safety team to exchange his air tanks. I was down having a good time, but the crew couldnt get out to where I was, Sherrod said on Wednesday. When the safety crew did make it to him, they had only enough air for 15 to 20 minutes. It was bad for them, so we called it, he said. Sherrod said conditions were tolerable for him, but there was a surge at some points, and while the tanks were changed, the seas rocked him four to ve feet. Im an extreme kind of person. It was kind of fun, he said. Setting up for a night dive he had found an octopus hole and planned to play with the leggy creatures. After dark, he said it was incredible watching plankton that generate a glow out of the reef. Sherrod says hes no quitter and he plans to return to LBTS on Dec. 1 to try again. This is not going to keep me from getting the record, he said. Sherrod said the purpose of his dives are to bring reef awareness. Lauderdale-By-The-Sea has an arti cial reef system. We have to protect our reefs. He describes LBTS as the coolest shore dive place in all of Florida. Sherrod set up his temporary residence in about 15 feet of water, 300 yards offshore and near the arti cial reef site. A dive instructor, he recently set a world record in Central Florida for the longest freshwater scuba dive; ve days. It took him three attempts. In that case, he stayed in one spot. In the ocean dive, he said he would travel all over the reef. There are a lot more sh out here to make friends with, he said. The current record for longest saltwater dive was set in 2010 by William Gordon in Indonesia. Its for 48 hours, 8 minutes and 7 seconds. Sherrod was aiming for 72 hours. Sherrod said he expected to need 50 tanks of air. Divers from his safety crew and other volunteers were to bring him tanks and change them under water. He wore a wetsuit and full face mask, applied Vaseline to his hands to keep them from swelling and wore gloves. His underwater diet was strictly liquid: Gatorade, Ensure and chocolate milk. He drinks by unhooking his face mask and removing a pod in his mouth. It doesnt take him long to down 24 ounces. The challenges in this kind of dive are more mental than physical, Sherrod said before entering the water Tuesday. He will lose the sense of time, and sometimes get a little agitated. He was able to talk to other divers using an underwater speaker system and in order to sleep, switched from the full-face mask to a regular mask with regulator that he ties to a rock, sleeping face down. He brought along eight hours of Jimmy Buffet music to keep him entertained. Twenty-six divers from Gold Coast Scuba shop signed up for shifts to hang out with him, according to Kim Porter, one of the volunteers. She said he could also communicate with them by writing on a large Magna Doodle. This is a really exciting event, and hes a great guy, said Brian Gagas, one of the owners of Gold Coast Scuba. Hes trying to increase the interest in diving here, and the more national attention we get the better. The towns arti cial reef, designed to stimulate faster coral growth by using a low-level electric current, was recently installed. Recently, the solar panels and buoys were damaged in stormy weather and they have been removed for repairs. John Boutin, general manager of the Windjammer Resort, was host to Sherrod and his team and instrumental in helping him with preparations. I consider the reef an amenity (to the resort), Boutin said. Some have tennis courts. I have the live coral reef. Boutin has been lobbying other local businesses to contribute to the Global Coral Reef Alliance, the nonpro t group that built the arti cial reef. Donations will go to the LBTS project, he said. Sherrods wife Debbie kept busy helping him with equipment. Asked if she worries about him during such adventures, she said, Always. But I have my own support team, pointing to the wives of his crew. Debbie Sherrod helps her husband Allen prepare for dive off LauderdaleBy-The-Sea. Hes aiming for the world record for longest saltwater dive. (Staff photos by Judy Vik) Allen Sherrod applies Vaseline to his hands in preparation for his descent into the sea.

Construction Open House for Wilton Manors First Registered L.E.E.D. Platinum HomeSPECIAL TO THE PELICANWilton Manors The city announced today the Open House for the rst registered L.E.E.D., or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, Platinum certi ed home in the city. In the continued effort to promote Green Initiatives in Wilton Manors, the city has codi ed the Wilton Manors Green Building Program, the intent of which is to provide the city with a certi cation-based green building program. The open house will take place on November 1, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at 2100 N.E. 1st Way in Wilton Manors, with members of the Wilton Manors City Commission attending. We are absolutely delighted to have this rst home being constructed and look forward to many more, said Heidi Shafran, Director of Community Development Services for the City of Wilton Manors. This home has the support of the City as well as myself. We look forward to supporting these efforts which provide for a smaller carbon footprint on our island city. Of cial designation of a L.E.E.D.-certi ed home comes after the completion of the home, so there is no possibility of green-washing. With the inspection happening postconstruction, 3rd-party inspectors will be able to certify that each criterion of the program has been met for the L.E.E.D. or Platinum L.E.E.D. certication. The home is being constructed by builder/owner Robert Mannino and Stewart A. Robin is the Residential Designer and Developer, both with Contempo Development. Im tremendously excited to be part of this project. To design the rst L.E.E.D. home in Wilton Manors is such a challenge. And, we are not just going for L.E.E.D. certi cation, but Platinum L.E.E.D., the highest rating currently available for environmentally responsible housing, said Robin. In addition, the house is under construction so during the Open House, visitors will be able to see the actual components of the construction that make this home so energy ef cient. This Open House will be very educational and interactive. Heidi Shafran and Stewart A. Robin are available for interviews and to provide more information about the L.E.E.D. Program and the Wilton Manors Green Building Program.

Dozens of young boys and girls waiting at the Richard Porraro Pavillion at St. Coleman School on October 14, peered into the darkness, anxiously waiting for former Harlem Globetrotter Bobby Zorro Hunter. The players already had completed their evaluations and were waiting for the star of the show. Is the Globetrotter here yet? they whispered to their parents. There was no wondering when Hunter arrived, clad in his white Globetrotters warmup jacket. When hes not making kids happy, Hunter, who from 1966 to 1974 was a Globetrotter, now works as a casino greeter. Its a job hes held for a bit over two years. The thing he loves the most to do is work with youth through the medium of basketball, and Hunter conveyed to the players at St. Colemans a few tips that had nothing to do with the basketball court. Lifes lessons, he told them, were more important than basketball ones. He urged them to give a St. Coleman students get a few tips from Harlem Globe TrotterSee TROTTER on page 14Basketball season opens with tall order to focus on the things that count in life

18 The Pelican Friday, October 28, 2011 with us, Capt. Adkins said. Well help them out, but they have to work within the guidelines of our ordinances. Failure to correct the problems will put the club before the Nuisance Abatement Board which could close the club down, the captain said. Currently, Hypnotic Productions is running an ad on the internet for a Halloween party this Saturday at Club Cinema, inviting all ages and advertising 9 p.m. 4 a.m. hours. Tickets run $20 to $40. A Channel 7 expose last week put the club at 3251 N. Federal Highway in the news. The TV station chose to produce a story about a day-glo party attended by young teens, the girls wearing barely-there lingerie. That night several teens became ill and were taken to the hospital, four others were arrested inside the club for selling ecstasy. Ironically, the clubs dress code as listed on its website, no ip ops, shorts, athletic wear, does not address underwear. The club has been a hotspot for illegal activity for some time. BSO records for the period May through September show re-rescue was called to the club for 20 individuals, 11 of them under age 18. In the past year, BSO answered 127 calls from the club, 14 of which involved narcotics and 15 for partygoers who had passed out, overdosed or were having seizures. At the commission meeting Tuesday, Mayor Fisher urged both the city and BSO to enforce all measures possible to rectify the situation. This is a life-safety issue young teens are being exposed to the drug and alcohol scene. One day, well lose a life. We have to bring closure to this issue. Make sure we are doing all we can, he told his managers. The strip center is also home to the former Crazy Horse strip club which had its share of bad publicity a decade ago. Now vacant and ravaged by a re, the space, a few doors north of Club Cinema, is being eyed by Commissioner Charlotte Burrie for a civic center. Burrie, whose district includes the club and residential neighborhoods to the west, said she is attempting to negotiate a lease with the property manager in Chicago, Greg Berkowitz, for the 8,000 square feet. She said the city has put together a nancial plan to operate the center which would cost no more than running the Pat Larkins Center after the renovation investment of $1.5 million is made. The funds to build are already in a capital improvement budget, the commissioner said. I can think of nothing better for the neighborhood than turning a strip joint into a civic center, she said. It would get rid of the blight there. Until the club made the news, Burrie said she had only a few calls from concerned parties. She called the dance parties the new plaything, the rage for kids, and CinemaContinued from page 1 addressing the clothes they wear said, Do you want to be the moral police? Burrie said the only thing at the club being sold to the kids is water. But she understands they drink alcohol and strip down offpremise before entering the club. We have to be careful what we say here. There are legal issues. Im not against anybody making a living, Burrie said. No one associated with the clubs management has been arrested. The strip center where Club Cinema is located is reportedly owned by convicted felon Sam Frontera who served four years for cocaine traf cking in the early s.

The Pelican 19 Friday, October 28, 2011 Wilton Manors On Sunday, Oct. 16, David Dodson, a Public Safety Aide with the Wilton Manors Police Department died suddenly. Officer Dodson was born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania on Aug. 21, 1960. He and his family eventually moved to Florida where he graduated from Boca Raton High School in 1980. Upon graduation, Officer Dodson was employed with Boca Raton Police Department as an Accident Scene Investigator. After leaving Boca Raton, he began working in the restaurant business. After 11 years in the business, Officer Dodson began a 17-year career with Home Depot. Eventually he decided to return to his love of law enforcement and began his employment with the Wilton Manors Police Department in 2006 as a Police Service Aide. Due to his hard work, motivation and willingness to learn, he was chosen to attend the Institute of Public Safety Academy for Accident Investigations in 2009. He successfully completed the six-week academy and was assigned to Road Patrol. Officer Dodson was tasked with several other responsibilities and performed them all in an exemplary manner. This reflected in his recent selection as Employee of the Quarter. Officer Dodson was the Field Training Officer, Terminal Agency Coordinator, Evidence back-up technician and Emergency Management Operations representative for the department. This week, Chief of Police Paul OConnell referred to Officer Dodson as an exemplary employee. He was dependable, loyal, consistent, honorable, and most of all humble.

The city has about 370 parking meters presently. Average revenue per meter is between $500 and $600 annually. County code of ethics puts mayors job in peril Wilton Manors Commissioners agreed to put a question on the Jan. 31 ballot regarding the recent Broward County Code of Ethics. Most controversial in the countys new code are requirements that elected city of cials and volunteer board members must disclose their annual salaries. The second issue, one that directly impacts Mayor Gary Resnick, addresses lobbyists. Resnick, an attorney, works as a lobbyist at GrayRobinson, PA, a law rm in Fort Lauderdale. He is also a shareholder in the rm. The new county code prohibits any parttime employee of a city within Broward County to engage in any lobbying activities. Elected of cials are considered part time employees. As of Jan. 2, Resnick would be in violation of the code if he continues to lobby. Said Resnick on Tuesday, Some people wont run for of ce with these restrictions. Volunteer board members will be under the same scrutiny: They must abandon lobbying. On Tuesday, commissioners agreed to circumvent the county code by placing two referenda on the Jan. 31 ballot. The question will ask voters to accept the state ethics standards for elected of cials and Wilton ManorsContinued from page 1volunteer board members as opposed to the countys code regarding salary disclosure and lobbying. Upon voter approval, city of cials must then adopt the state code as part of its city charter. City Manager Joe Gallegos said that once the ethics code is in the city charter, it trumps the county code. Vice Mayor Tom Green didnt like the idea. I am very nervous about the appearance of this. Its foolish and absurd. I dont like the perception of us trying to hide something. Commissioner Julie Carson found discomfort on both sides. We do live in a county where [some] elected of cials have gone to jail. In all of that impropriety, fear and distrust of public of cials [is evident]. Resident Paul Kuta called the county code too obtrusive.

WiltonContinued from page 20By Aleese KopfPELICAN WRITERPompano Beach Come next year, thousands of Pompano residents could be enjoying lower flood insurance premiums or be exempt from purchasing it all together. After almost 20 years, FEMA is updating the Federal Flood Insurance Maps, or FIRM, in Pompano Beach. New federal ood zone maps give residents an insurance breakFIRMs establish flood hazard areas and base flood elevations. In order for the city to be eligible for federal flood insurance, it must adopt the maps. Lenders also use the maps to determine when flood insurance is required for federallybacked mortgages. In addition, FIRMs mandate the minimum floor elevation requirements for new construction and improvements to existing buildings. According to the Broward County website, the updated digital maps use a new vertical datum that enables consistent comparisons of land and water elevations and more accurate boundaries of flood hazard areas. The current flood maps are paper maps. They provide Base Flood Elevation, or BFE, with data which was established in 1929, said Jean Dolan, principal planner for the city. Dolan said right now the maps have very little detail and show very few differentiations in flood zones. She said the new digital maps will benefit most residents. This is a good thing for the majority of Pompano, Dolan said. Most of the city is in an area with a favorable change versus the few areas with an unfavorable change. Some properties will no longer require flood insurance, other properties will be under the same risk and wont be affected, and a few properties will be mapped into higher-risk areas requiring an increase in insurance premiums or the purchase of insurance where it was previously not required. Sandra King, public communications director, said for Broward County the new numbers indicate 25 percent of the residents in each city will get favorable news and only six percent of those not previously included, will have to buy flood insurance. Dolan said it is too soon to speculate for sure what will happen to insurance rates. The maps wont take effect for another year so it may take some time to figure out whats going to happen to insurance costs, she said. The updated flood maps will become effective after a series of public open house See FLOOD MAPS on page 25

Pompano eventsContinued from page 2By RJ BoylePELICAN ANGLERI am so happy not to have to deal with hurricane preparations. I can relax now and get fired up to fish. I am going to make it a sailfish weekend. It seems a little early but the guys crushed the sails last weekend. They were catching them both on the troll and on live bait. I am actually going to troll because I want to try out some new teasers and dredge equipment. Trolling dredge teasers is the new and improved billfishing method. The setups can be simple to quite elaborate. The easiest method is to use the stripteaser holographic teaser. This teaser is trolled behind the boat up to 8 knots. It is very light and easy to deal with and fish absolutely love them. The teaser has four or six arms, and it has long shiny strips with ballyhoo images on it coming off of each leg of the dredge. For the advanced fishermen the shiny strips would be replaced with actual mullet or a rubber mullet. It is very time consuming to rig these fish the right way to get them to swim naturally. We rig them for customers at the shop all the time during sailfish season. The dredge really improves your chances to catch more fish. Stop by the shop and check them out. You will understand when you see them why fish love them. Get Tight RJ Boyle I love stripteasersThe Pelican We Mean Business

The Pelican 25 Friday, October 28, 2011 From Marsala to Francesa to Parmigiana, most of Portugals neighbors have tantalizing contributions to offer with regard to poultry preparation. But the brightest star in the restaurants culinary constellation is, unequivocally, the fresh seafood. The storied seafaring nation of Portugal has developed a proud maritime gastronomic tradition and, thankfully, it is on full display at Portugalia. Our paella and mariscada are signature dishes, says manager Taveres. The former is served with classic yellow rice and the latter is a stew. Either way, these delectable made-for-two dishes unveil cornucopian amounts of lobster, mussels, scallops, shrimps and clams smothered in rich saffron laced sauces. Named after a former African colony, the Mozambique style shrimp showcases a hearty serving of the popular crustacean smothered in a palette pleasing white wine and spicy lemon sauce. One of the favorite dishes served in a multitude of fashions, Bacalhau, is a national staple consisting of dried and salted cod fish. Broiled, poached, shredded or fried, the fish exudes the full flavors of its specific preparation. Many versions include sauted onions, peppers and potatoes. Portugalia also offers great fresh fish platters. We buy our fish and seafood fresh every morning. Grilled sardines, snapper and striped bass can be enjoyed whole every day, says co-proprietor Oliveira. This friendly eatery has an extensive selection of predominantly Portuguese wines and ports. No meal would be complete without an appreciative nod to the oenological prowess of this Iberian nation. For dessert, Portuguese custard filled pastries and flan are always a great way to conclude a voyage to this westernmost European country. Large entres start at $12.95. Daily specials begin at $7.95 and feature many specialties not always available on the regular menu. Wine by the glass can be enjoyed for $4.50 and bottles for $18. Free parking is ample and all major credit cards are accepted On the weekend, live music starts around 9 pm and provides the ambiance one would expect from a fun night in Lisbon. Several flat screen televisions make this an ideal place to catch European soccer games as well. For an authentic yet affordable Portuguese dining experience in Pompano Beach, this little restaurant on Atlantic Blvd is sure to please.Malcolm McClintock is president of Alabaska LLC, a firm that assists hotels, restaurants and individual property owners with their purchasing needs.

26 The Pelican Friday, October 28, 2011 by Spiderman, glittering jacketed Follies volunteers and the fun began. With parental approval, each child made clothing choices, dropped them into a basket until the allowable amount was reached on the Follies volunteers calculator. The store buzzed like a beehive, as groups of shoppers lined up for a turn. Alexandria Nunez, a JCPenney volunteer, automatically drops underwear and socks into each basket at the start. She says, Its fun to be part of the excitement. I did it last year and didnt want to miss it this year. The shopping families got a warm welcome from Follies men and women. A JCPenney discount to the Follies meant that each child would have a little extra to spend. Each child wore a name and size tag to make shopping easier and more fun. In addition to regular store displays, there were racks of shirts, pants, jackets and more organized by the retailer in anticipation of the event. Follies President, Doug Gorab gave raves to Pennyes for providing this private shopping opportunity, ample sales people, and a courtesy discount. He said, Weve been told that most of the children have never owned brand new clothing before so this is a real treat. Cathy Dooley, founder of the Original Florida Follies, sat at the store entrance/exit door handing a Beanie Baby with a $5 Burger King gift certi cate to each child leaving. She told the Pelican, We work hard all year round. The performers rehearse three times a week to bring their outstanding show to South Florida venues, but we all think its worth it when we see the childrens happy faces. I always had a dance studio in Coral Springs and I thought of the children in my classes as my own while they were with me. And now, Im reaching out to needy children who give me thanks, smiles, kisses and hugs. What a reward! Ana E. Calderon, PhD. assistant administrator of the Childrens Diagnostic and Treatment Center, or CDTC, smiled broadly as she watched the children line up with parents to go shopping. She said, We are so grateful to the loving and giving Follies people and the JCPenney volunteers for making it happen. CDTC is one of the largest childrens agencies in South Florida, serving over 10,000 children and youth annually. Gorab says, After witnessing the joy their money produced, Im sure our performers will kick their heels higher than ever this season. We were founded by Cathy Dooley and she is still our producer. Were an all volunteer group of about 110 members between the ages of 60 and 90 plus. We have 50 actual performers; our oldest is 94. Our members come from Hollywood on the South to Boynton Beach on the North. Our rehearsal studio is in Coral Springs. To cover our production and program costs, we have a few fundraisers that are always successful and fun. Seven shows are on the schedule for 2011. One will be held at the Omni Theater in Coconut Creek, four in Boca Raton, one in Miramar and one at the Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale.
