Deerfield Beach The
city is attempting to revive
its Shady Streets program,
a beautification project that
encourages residents to buy
trees for their swale areas.
Last week, about 30 were
planted around the city,
a dozen of them outside


Deerfield Beach Middle
School where a former 'crop'
perished.
"We' re doing it if we have
the money," City Landscaper
Harold Hoyt said this week.
Money for the tree project
comes from the mitigation

they remove trees, but in these

The Pelican 5


his Pompano Beach apartment
in the early hours of Oct. 25,
1996, a murder that has still
not been solved. "I didn't
want to know the details. I
still don't want to know the
details," said Coley, whose
father was also murdered
when she was seven.
Coley said her son had
his faults. "He ran with
undesirables." But he was
also a very quiet and giving
person. If you asked him for a
dollar, he'd give you five."
To honor Rhone and other
murder victims and their


families, the City of Pompano
Beach, at Coley' s request,
erected the Eternal Flame for
Murder Victims monument
at the Pompano Beach
Cemetery.
The four foot high
monument with a flickering
electric light was dedicated
during a special ceremony
Wednesday, four years
after Coley first lobbied
commissioners to build it.
"This effort will ease the
pain of families who have
lost a loved one to the violent
act of murder," said Coley,
reading part of the inscription
she wrote for the memorial.
Shortly after her son
was murdered, she started
Families Against Murder and
Accidental Shootings, and


serves as its president.
Major William Knowles,
Pompano Beach Broward
Sheriff' s Office, said law
enforcement actively
investigates unsolved
murders. "Nothing hurts
law enforcement, especially
homicide detectives, more
than to have an unsolved
murder," said Knowles, who
urges anyone with knowledge
of any crime to contact law
enforcement.
Anyone with information
on any criminal activity in
Broward can call Crime
Stoppers anonymously at 954
493-8477.
If information given
results in an arrest, the tipster
is eligible for a tax exempt
cash reward up to $1,000.

Walking Tour of Pompano B each's

Historic Downtown

The Pompano Beach Historical Society and the Pompano Beach Green
Market will present a guided walking tour of Pompano Beach' s historic
downtown on Saturday, Feb. 18, beginning at 10 a.m.
The tour will be conducted by two long-time Pompano Beach residents with
expert knowledge of its past: Bud Garner and Don Downie. Garner is the City
of Pompano Beach' s official historian and author of several books on local
history; Downie also has written on Pompano Beach s past and was the driven
force on such projects as the Pompano Beach Pioneer Monument and the annual
Pompano High School "Beanpicker" reumions.
During the tour they will discuss the historic structures that remain, as well
as the businesses that occupied those buildings and the people who lived and
worked in old Pompano.
Pompano Beach' s historic downtown developed alongside the Florida
East Coast Railway tracks and by the 1920s was a small but lively center for
commercial activities in the community. Most businesses catered to the needs
of the agricultural interests that provided the economic foundation of Pompano.
Until 1939, downtown Pompano was also the location of the farmers market,
where local growers came to pack, sell and ship their produce to markets across
the nation.
Many of Pompano Beach' s oldest commercial buildings are located this
area, including the Bank of Pompano, Bailey Hotel, Pompano Mercantile
Company and Hamilton' s Pharmacy, dating back to the early 1920s.
The walking tour will begin from the Pompano Beach Historical Society s
booth at the weekly Pompano Beach Green Market, located at the corner of
Northeast First Street and Flagler Avenue in Pompano Beach. The tour is free
and handicapped accessible.
For information call 954 292-8040 or visit the Historical Society s website at
www.pompanohistory. com.

Letters & Opinions


6 The Pelican


Friday, February 10, 2012


Hillsboro Lighthouse is a beacon

that should not be dimmed
Even the most ardent conservationist should value human life over that of a
turtle hatchling, no matter how adorable the teensy reptile. That' s the choice the
public is being asked to make as the Coast Guard poses the question "Should
the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse be dark during turtle season?"
So far, it appears public sentiment is on the side of the boaters who look to
the Hillsboro Lighthouse to bring them safely home.
Sure, the bigger yachts and sport fishermen have electronic equipment that
will guide them through the reef into safe harbor, but the ordinary weekend
boater may not. It can be very dark out there two miles from shore and coral
reefs lay just off the Hillsboro Inlet on either side of the channel markers.
While the public clamors for the light, the strongest in the world, to
remain lit 12 months a year, and the experts ponder the fate of tiny turtles,
it is interesting to note that all this commotion has been caused by one letter
writer. John Carlson freely admits he is the "guilty party" who has set a number
governmental wheels in motion. Furthermore, he says, he has been trying to dim
the light for years with an onslaught of letters to various agencies. Now, at last,
he has gotten an official response.
But most responders do not favor Carlson' s position and that is probably not
how he wanted it to go.
The perpetuation of the sea turtle, once an endangered species, has become
a mantra not only for environmentalist, but for all of us. What had been a
nightly slaughter of the hatchlings as they made their way toward street
lights, residential backyards and beach grasses instead of the open ocean is
being greatly mitigated. Cities are spending small fortunes refitting lighting
on boardwalks and parking lots; condominium associations are grudgingly
changing out light fixtures that once attracted the turtles. This is all good and
as a bonus, the new turtle friendly lighting is much more attractive than the old
stuff.
The result is a thriving turtle population especially in Hillsboro Beach where
there are stretches of relatively dark sand. Do some turtle hatchlings there
become attracted to the lighthouse beacon? Undoubtedly. Does it really matter
in the bigger picture of things where the hatchlings that make it into the sea face
even grimmer dangers?
Turtles have been coming to Hillsboro' s beaches for generations and are
known to return to lay their eggs where they were born, light or no light.
That some of them will perish because of a manmade danger is not nearly as
important as keeping the ocean safe for boaters.
The Fresnel lens in the Hillsboro Light was restored in 2000 at great
expense. The public chipped in, as did the government. Its significance both as a
navigational tool and as an historic monument cannot be overstated.
We expect the experts studying the issue will side with the mariners and the
people with a soft spot for lighthouses in general and the history of this one in
particular. But in the meantime, the preference of one individual is creating a
tidal wave of activity.
There is probably no way to estimate what this is costing the taxpayer.
Message: The new consciousness of persons attuned to environmental and
conservation issues must be balanced with the needs of all humans.


COmmissioners set meetings
Deerfield Beach Three city commissioners are holding district meeting this
month beginning with Bill Ganz who will hold a District 4 meeting Monday,
Feb. 13, 7 p.m. at Constitution Park, 2841 West Hillsboro Blvd.
On Thursday, Feb. 23, 7 p.m., Dist. 1 Commissioner Joe Miller will speak
with constituents at City Hall and on Friday, Feb. 24, 6 p.m., Dist.2 Commis-
sioner Ben Preston will meet with residents at Westside Park, 448 SM' 2 Street.


Tacobs making a bid for Congress
All the players may still be in flux, but County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs
said this week she is a definite candidate for U.S. Congress. Jacobs will run in
District 22, a coastal constituency that has been redrawn giving Democrats a
slight edge and the one being vacated by U.S. Rep. Allen West (R).
Jacobs, a Democrat, will have primary opposition from former West Palm
Beach mayor Lois Frankel.
West is moving his political aspirations to a new district (18) north and west
of his current one which runs the shoreline from Hallandale to Hobe Sound.
Jacobs' term on the county commission ends in 2014 and she has said
she intends to keep at her commission duties throughout her congressional
election attempt. She was elected to the county commission in 1998, defeating
incumbent Sylvia Poitier and is known for her environmental concerns. She
lives in Pompano Beach.
Others seeking congressional seats are West Palm Beach Democrat Patrick
Murphy who announced this week he would challenge West in District 18 and
Republican Adam Hasner, expected to run in District 22.










Residents get lessons on how to share

Killer bees are the worst

By Judy Vik
pELICAN STAF

Pompano Beach -
Cresthaven residents recently
got an education on killer bees
and wildlife recently from the
city' s longtime animal control
officer David Aycock.
Aycock spoke on what to
do about beehives and how to
get nuisance creatures, such as
possum and raccoons, to visit
your neighbor' s yard instead
of yours.
"African honey bees
are increasing unbelievably
and are here to stay," he
said. "The first year [about


warns.
If you' re stung, he
suggests using a credit card to
scrape out the poison.
Then, "pull your shirt over
your head and run. Bees will
pick up your odor and get in
your mouth, nose and eyes.
If they' re in your mouth, you
can't breathe," Aycock said.
The bees like junk piles,
water meters, old stumps and
clay pots.
He recalled one incident
on McNab Road where a UPS
truck disturbed a hive in an
olive tree. Twenty-five people
were stung and two dogs
killed.

winter. I've done houses in
all sizes from two to nine
rooms. Most have hand made
wood floors, papered walls,
electricity, flower boxes and
shingles. Each house has
been painted twice. First, it is
primed and then topped with a
finished coat."
Asked where he gets his
houses, he replies," I send


for kits, shop garage and attic
sales, and sometimes buy a
store's demo models which
I take apart and reassemble.
My wife does the designing
and chooses the color scheme
including wallpaper and paint.
She makes the bedspreads,
mattresses, pillows, and
curtains, and she fills the
flower boxes.


His wife says, "I love
planning the room interiors,
but he does all the work. In
fact, I probably work one
evening to his one month.
The clerks at A.C. Moore,
at Sample and Federal, see
a lot of us, as this is our
destination for furniture and
dolls. We individually wrap
the furniture and dolls in
tissue paper and place them
in a container so that the child
receiving the doll house has
the thrill of unwrapping the
dolls and placing the furniture
herself. "
Asked why their gift isn't
put in a hospital play area for
many children to share, she
replies, "Spreading of germs
is the problem, we're told, so
that' s why the Child Life staff
members use their judgment
to choose the little girl who
needs this gift the most."
This generous couple
have two children and three
grandchildren. Two are girls.
The doll house he made for
their daughter when she was
five, has now been given to
her own daughter. When their


other granddaughter reaches
four or five, grandpa will
build a doll house for her.
With a laugh, the wife
of the builder says,"I was
a tomboy and never played
with dolls. Now, in retirement
I'm having fun with doll
houses. I love planning the
room interiors, filling the
flower boxes, and making the
accessories."
The Pelican had the
pleasure of looking at
photographs of the 31 doll
houses, each shown with
the little girls who received
them. Their daughter had
put together this impressive
album and titled it, "Dad' s
Miracles".
Speaking for her husband
and herself, the former
kindergarten teacher wrapped
up the interview saying, "The
only reward we want are these
pictures. If we have given
some happy moments to these
girls, we are thrilled."
Thank you both for your
creative and generous way to
make a difference.

revenues. Parking could be
provided at night on a lease
basis for valet parking .
The lease is for fi e years,
and the landowner has the
right to cancel if the hotel
needs to be built, Brown
said. There is a penalty for
canceling the lease.
Cost to build the lot
is estimated at $500,000.
The city's public works
department employees will
build the lot, so it can be
done inexpensively, Brown
said. Some permits have been
obtained, and others are in
for application. Construction
could start in 30 to 60 days.


The parcel was the
basement of the Howard
Johnson' s hotel, so it' s at
a low elevation. Free fill, a
high quality sand fill, will be
brought from the Pompano
Beach Airport. Solar lights are
planned.
"This is all about tourism,"
Brown said. "When we finish
Pompano Beach Boulevard,
the boardwalk and dunes, we
will get a lot more people
coming to the beach to see the
new Pompano Beach."
Later, this lot could be
replaced with a garage at the
pier or at the Oceanside lot

The lot is the site where

Although his business is
leverage buyouts which means
buying and selling companies,
Ben Smith, 38, the owner of
the two Lighthouse Inns, 3305
SE 5 St. and 3208 NE 11 St.,
Pompano Beach since 2008
says, "These two assisted liv-
ing facilities are keepers. I'm
attached to the residents and
would feel like I abandoned
them if I sold the Inns.
My aunt, Sue Beall, is the
very capable administrator
of both residences and Suzi
Mautner is our director of
marketing. These two people
are my life savers.
Mautner, who is a seasoned
executive in this field, was
asked how these Inns differ
from other rental assisted hiv-
mng residences.
She replied, We do all of
the services one expects. The
difference is in the excep-
tionally caring staff. We're
intimate residences with a
capacity of 33 in Lighthouse
Inn South and 43 in Light-
house Inn North. We re small
enough to give personal atten-
tron.
The residents all know each
other and have concerns for
each other the way family
members do for one another."
Continuing, she adds, "Our
case manager social worker


take good care of my room
and me. The food is good and
always fresh. Ribs, chicken
and meat loaf are my favorites.
They bake the cakes and pies
right here too, but butter pecan
ice cream is still my favorite. I
often walk the beach with my
friends and I like bingo."
Cindy Ryan, thinks these
Inns as life savers. \I1< dad
lived at Lighthouse Inn, North
for six years. I was impressed
with the quality of care he
received. When my husband
needed assisted living, I
moved them both to the South
Inn. And I, unexpectedly
ended up here too. They are
very good to us. My husband
needs constant attention and
it is provided by willing and
pleasant staff."
These two residences allow
small pets. Mautner says, "if
the resident can care for them.
Our staff assists residents
with bathing, dressing and
grooming, medical manage-
ment, housekeeping and per-
sonal laundry service. Physi-
cal and occupational therapy,
doctor visits and podiatrists are
available on site. We arrange
for transportation for off site
visits to dentists, doctors and
other activities. Family and
friends are welcome visitors
from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m."

The Pelican 13


The students came up with
a water filtration system, "and
the idea for our invention
was born," Flinn said. "They
needed something that would
affect people' s lives on a
global scale," Kalie said. She
became the team' s 'chief
inspiration officer."'"
Flinn said the students'
work could result in a patent.
"If they can get someone
to produce the product and
make it cost-effective so
emergency-aid organizations
can use it, that' s the idea."
The system is designed for
easy transport and set-up.
The device runs by a bicycle-
powered pump.
The team' s chief designer
is senior Cesar Hernandez


who completed 20 hours of
study at home on SolidWorks,
a software program MIT
students use in engineering
courses.
Flinn credits Hernandez'
designs with strengthening
the proposal which may have
helped them get the grant.
Chief designer is Santiago
Mayorga who finds scraps and
parts in his garage to make
motors run and filters work.
"He has brilliant ideas," Flinn
says. "He also is open to
others' ideas. He focuses on
the task and not on ego."
Santiago says he's already
thinking about a career as a
biological engineer.
Project manager and
team captain is senior Clara
Mabour, a Pompano Beach
resident. She attended the
science magnet program at
Crystal Lake Middle School.
She hopes to attend the
University of Florida to study
medicine. She was one of
24 students attending and
speaking at the Junior Science
Engineering & Humanities
Symposium in Gainesville.

Continued f~om page 1
The idea for their project
came from senior Kalie Hoke
who went on a mission trip
to Haiti with New Hope
Community Church. Outside
Port-au-Prince at a medical
clinic she saw people and
animals drinking and bathing
together in a 20-foot trough.
Water and sewage were open
to the air.
Kalie was in Flinn' s
classroom when the
InVenTeam was
brainstorming invention ideas.
She mentioned not being
able to shower properly in
Haiti because the water was
contaminated with cholera.


These 14 students from Northeast High School in Oakland Park recently won the
Lemelson-lMfT InVenTeam grant of $9,570 for creating a water filter system.


Chief tcahnllob sts officer,
William Leonard, designed
the group' s website, set them
up in Google does and set
up a team blog. He arranges
videoconferences and handles
finances. "He handles
aln\ thing~ that has a plug,"
Flinn quips.
Team member, Vibhor
Mayar, came up with the idea
to use natural materials in the
filter, materials endemic to
the tropics, including coconut
shell, sand, palm bar and
cotton. He is currently the
class valedictorian.
Other team members
are: Kiona Elliott, writing


and communications chair
responsible for MIT reports;
Daniel Ward, physics guru;
Liz Sanchez, fundraising chair
and researcher; Eric Irizarry,
calculus guru; Gabriella
Kriebel, Public Relations;
and Payton Kaar, Jahtsa
Christophe and Washington
Cusquillo, researchers.
The team reports to MIT
for teleconferences and
provides design updates. On
Feb. 15, MIT representatives
will visit the students.
Two local companies have
already offered assistance:
Chem-tec, which makes flow

m ke wade f ltrato dces.
The students are raising
funds to attend EurekaFest at
AIIT, where they will present
their project.
The Oakland Park Kiwanis
Club and Fire Department
will host a spaghetti dinner
to benefit the students on
March 9 at Jaco Pastorius

oN. .ii igwy TUckts

are $10 a person and $5 for
children under 12.

creating a green streetscape.
Maureen Kenny, a resident
on Southeast 7 Avenue,
single-handedly enticed
dozens of her neighbors to
participate in the program.
"I wanted them to take
advantage of the city' s offer
and it truly improved our
neighborhood," she said. "I
think planting a tree makes
people more conscious of
taking care of their properties.
"People don't always
know what's going on.
It takes someone like me
knocking on doors to tell
them. I have several neighbors


now in the new program."
The palms are fairly
resilient and after a few weeks
of hand watering don't require
irrigation, Hoyt said. There
are about 10 other trees on his
list that do well in the swale
areas and his staff decides
which variety to plant. The
homeowner pays $75 per tree
with the city picking up the
remainder of the cost which
runs as high as $220.
Those interested in
participating in Shady Trees
can contact Hoyt at 954-
336-8486, but he warns the
program is on hold until more
funds are released.


Continued ~omn page 2

lean times, some of those
dollars are being diverted
elsewhere. "We would like
to do two plantings a year,"
Hoyt said.
The palms outside the
school were paid for by the
city to replace what was lost
in a Shady Streets program
10 years ago that beautified
many blocks along Southeast
6 through Southeast 8
avenues. Residents paid for
hundreds of palms most of
which are thriving today,

After more than three decades, Fin & Claw continues fine

tradition of fresh seafood in friendly, welcoming atmosphere


By Malcolm McClintock
FOOD WRITER

Fin & Claw II
2476 N. Federal Hwy
Lighthouse Point, FL
954-782-1060
Renamed Fin & Claw II
after a move to the Shoppes
at Beacon Light plaza in
Lighthouse Point, this family-
run operation has been serving
outstanding fish, shellfish and
even European-style meats
and poultry for more than a
generation.
The quaint pastel-colored
eatery seats about 50 and
offers a cozy bar area in the
back where patrons can enjoy
fresh seafood while watching
sporting events on the flat
screen TV and enjoying a
frosty beer or glass of wine.
"We' ve been in business 32
years in Lighthouse Point,"
says Donna, who along with
husband and Chef Willie


Schlager, has been providing
top-notch fare and service
to the local community and
visitors alike. "I met my
husband 34 years ago when he
was working at a well-known
Fort Lauderdale seafood
restaurant. Shortly afterwards
we opened our own place here
in Lighthouse Point and have
never looked back."
For classic starters, the
Manhattan clam chowder is
bursting with tants~! tomato-
based flavors while the
creamy New England style
is loaded with potatoes and
celery. "It takes me many
hours to make these soups
from my own recipes," says
Donna. "Conversely, our
famous oyster stew is made to
order."
The Fin & Claw II serves up
a host of delectable appetizers
such as soft shell crab, garlic
escargot, crepes Singapore

have to keep things in bal-
ance. We shouldn't set aside
safety concerns for the sake of
turtles."
Rinsem said the power-
ful light serves to remind
fishermen of their location
at sea even if they have GPS
equipment. "It' s an additional
navigational aid and certainly
important if your electronic
equipment breaks down," he
said.
The Hillsboro Lighthouse
went into service in 1907 and
is a federal historic landmark.
Any change to the light would
require state approval.
The movement to replace
the original Fresnel lens
oave birth to the HLPS and
lakenian was instrumental
in getting the giant lens up
and working. After a series of
missteps the light, nine-feet
in diameter, went back into
operation in August, 2000.
While he waits for the


environmental experts to
respond, Haley continues to
seek public input. The HLPS
will sponsor a public rally
March 24, 1 to 4 p.m. at the
Emma Lou Olson Civic Cen-
ter, 1810 NE 6 St., Pompano
Beach. Invited are govern-
ment officials from Pompano
Beach through Deerfield
Beach, Broward County histo-
rians, federal and state marine
life experts, boaters, fisher-
men and interested citizens.
This week, Hillsboro
Beach commissioners ap-
proved a resolution support-
ing the light and the Broward
County Marine Advisory
Council has sent a letter urg-
ing the county commission to
resolve to keep the light on.
Former Hillsboro Beach
mayor Carmen McGarry has
also written letters to several
agencies expressing her opin-
ion. "No one wants a silent
light," McGarry wrote.


The light

that illustrates the light is still
important to mariners despite
the use of global positioning
systems.
The choice as set forth by
the Coast Guard is to discon-
tinue the light, obscure part of
it or keep sending its beam 28
miles to sea. It' s the strongest
beacon in the world.
Art Makenian, a member
of the Hillsboro Lighthouse
Preservation Society, or
HLPS, and the person most
responsible for restoring the
Fresnel lens to the lighthouse
in 2000 said, "For this partic-
ular inlet, the light is extreme-
ly important. When it was off
from 1992 to 1999, there were
wrecks almost weekly, mostly
at night. A lot of boats sank.
Of course, boaters still use the
light."
A reef to the south of
the channel is impossible to

:::hnuih a ihth Mkenian
reveals the channel markers
which gives boaters the right
approach angle to avoid the
reef.
Turning off the 2.5 ton
Fresnel lens would be harmful
to the 300 to 400 boaters who
use the inlet on weekends,
Alakenian said
Carlson, a resident of
Hillsboro Beach, said he
never intended for the light
to go dark. He said he made
a number of suggestions for
dimming the beam including
installing a light bulb with a
turtle-friendly glow, partially
shielding the light, painting
the inside of the lens room
black instead of white which
reflects light onto the beach,
tinting or putting film on the
lens. "That lighthouse started

toh n wnt toa25 ewat mp
which has escalated to 1,000
watts," Carlson said. "It lights


disorients the turtles."
Carlson said he has col-
lected numerous turtle hatch-
ling corpses from around the
base of the lighthouse.
The situation may have
worsened as residences along
the Hillsboro Mile are install-
ing turtle-friendly lighting
leaving the beacon the major
light source on the beach.
However, Alakenian
doesn' t believe Carlson' s
solutions to dim the glare are
feasible. "It is not a simple
thing to change the bulb," he

Angler Brad Rinsem who
belongs to the LHP Saltwater
Sportsmen' s Association, an
80-member-strong group said,
"We' re very concerned with
conservation. We understand
the peril of the turtles, but we

dogs is one thing he tackles
frequently. "An animal often
barks because it' s lonely and
suffering separation anxiety.
It' s under stress," he said. He
advises not waiting until the
problem is extreme. "Give us
a chance to explain how to
remedy the problem," he said.
He and fellow animal
control officer, Jason Soldani,
are proactive. "It' s about
solving problems, not about
writing tickets. A lot of time
education is the answer. We
will explain to your neighbors
what their responsibility is" in
caring for an animal or solv-
ing an odor problem.
A $100 fine can be issued
to people who don' t clean up
after their dogs, and there' s a
$250 fine for walking away
from defecation.


with them. He doesn' t remove
the animal unless it is sick or
inside the house.
L\ c~ly thing wants a roof
over its head, food and a dry
place to sleep. If you provide
that for them, they will live
at your house. We tell you
what to do so they will live
at your neighbor' s house," he
quipped.
One suggestion: To avoid
having the creatures in your
yard, put tight-fitting lids on
garbage cans to eliminate a
food source.
Cresthaven doesn' t have
as bad a problem with rats
as some other parts of this
city because it is not on the
waterfront. "But look up at
the phone lines at night, and
you' 11 see rats running the
superhighway," Aycock said.

The fire tower in Pompano
Beach has a recurring prob-
lem where bees have chewed
a hole in the concrete block.
"We have plugged it with ce-
ment five times, and they ve
chewed through the concrete,"
Aycock said.
A model ordinance
Aycock helped write Pom-
pano Beach' s animal control
ordinance which he describes
as one of the best in the coun-
try and is constantly copied
in other cities. "We try for
a balance in looking out for
animals and people, and we
have addressed every issue,
he said.
Problems with barkmng


The city has a cat trappin
program that removes feral
cats from neighborhoods.
Traps will be provided to help
with the problem and assis-
tance offered if it' s needed.

Beach, is a gathering of
the best billfish guys in the
business. I learned more at
that seminar myself about
blue marlin and sailfishing
then I ever could have
imagined.
I was teamed-up with Capt
Skip Smith on stage talking
about daytime swordfishing.
You could have heard a pin
drop in that room.
Attendees were equipped
with clip boards and pens and
were smart enough to write
down critical points to help
them learn the essentials.
Walking around that
seminar was like a whose who
of famous fishing guys. I was
flattered to be in the company
of these unreal fishermen.
Fishermen from all over
the world who are at the top
of their game will be giving
blow-by-blow instruction on
tactics that have made them
the best year-after-year.
You will never be able to
learn as much from a seminar
anywhere worldwide. I will be
speaking at the seminar again
this year.
Some of the other s eakers
include Capt. John Dudas,
Capt. Jimmy David, Capt.


Gene Vanderhook, Capt.
David Fields, Capt. Dean
Panos and Arthur Mariano
from the University of Miami.
Don' t miss this one.
If you have any questions or
need to purchase tickets, call
the store at 954-420-5001.

Many alcoholics find
religion to keep themselves
sober. Butch Pilkington found
softball.
Pilkington, a Pompano
resident, is the manager of the
First Step Shockers, a softball
team that plays at the Four
Fields baseball and softball
complex in Pompano Beach.
He' s been sober since 2000.
"I thank God I' ve been sober
ever since. [But] it's more of a
spiritual thing.]
Pilkington and Chris
Doherty, who runs Sober
House, a halfway house for
recovering alcoholics and
drug addicts in Pompano, and
plays on the team, say softball

recently attended, and runs his
own business.
"All our [drug and alcohol
abuse] stories are essentially
the same," said Doherty, now
in his 15th year Of sobriety.
Between 1991 and 1997 "I
spent maybe a year or two out
of jail."
He and his wife divorced
after he had been sober
for some time, and the
relationship with his sisters
has been strained. "After five
years [of sobriety] I was able
to earn their respect back."
While the First Step
Shockers players are familiar
with the 12-Step recovery
program, the number 9 may
have more significance for
them. Recently, they won
the first tournament at the
newly refurbished Four
Fields complex. "We won
the tournament. We protected
the house [from teams from
other cities]," said Doherty.
"We [lost the first game] and
had win nine more in a row
to win the tournament, which
is actually pretty cool," said
Pilkington. "It gets pretty
tiring too," added Doherty.
Steve Momot, who umpires
at Four Fields, said the
Sober House players bring
a lot more to the games than
just a desire to play. "[They
[operate] the scoreboards for
me. That's huge because there
are a lot of parks. They love
the feature but they just don' t
want to [operate them]," says
Momot. "It really adds to
bringing people to the park,
bringing people to the area."
Shocker' s first baseman
Kelly Day went through Sober
House and been clean since
2004. He met his wife through
Alcoholics Anonymous. "We
keep each other sober.'
He lives in Hallandale now
but the driving distance isn't
enough to keep him off the
team. "I love the game. I can't
say enough good things about
it."
But some are just there for
softball.
Outfielder Van Mushhany
has never been through a
drug or alcohol recovery
program but has been playing
with the team since 2003. A
friend from work, who has
since died of an overdose,
introduced him to the team.
"They' re good [softball
players]. That' swhy I' ve
remained on the team for nine
years.

call 954-942-7414. To contact
First Step House, call 954-

helps First Step Shockers'
players keep clean and sober.
"[Softball shows us] there's
something other than just
[Alcoholics Anonymous]
meetings .. that there' s fun
in recovery," says Pilkington.
Most of First Step Shockers'
players are in or were in Sober
House. "We' ve been together
many years," said Doherty,
who also lives in Pompano.
"They learn how to lose
and take it on the chin. [They
learn] how to play as a team.
They learn how to have fun
again," said Doherty, who
founded Sober House with
Richard Entriken in 2000.
Doherty credits Entriken, his
former business partner who
was murdered in 2008, with
helping him get sober.
Before getting clean,
Pilkington, who also runs a
halfway house called First
Step House in Pompano, says
his drinking would lead to
drug use and he would end
up in the "proverbial garbage
can." It almost landed him
in prison and ultimately cost
him his house, his marriage
and severely damaged his
relationship with his children.
"When you use [drugs
and alcohol] your family in
general doesn't want anything
to do with you," he said.
Since becoming sober, he s
remarried, "my kids are in my
life [again]" and he' s repaired
his relationship with his
ex-wife, whose wedding he
