Designers hired

to give LBTS 'a
distinct sense of

place'
By Judy Vik
PELICAN STAFF
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea -
Commissioners unanimously agreed
Tuesday to hire a Fort Lauderdale
firm, Architectural Alliance, to
design a streetscape on Commercial
Boulevard from the Intracoastal
Waterway Bridge east to Seagrape
Drive. The contract was worth
$150,178.
"Primary goals of this very
important project are to create a
distinct sense of place as one crosses
the bridge and enters Lauderdale-
By-The-Sea and to create an
inviting atmosphere that supports
retail businesses along this section
of Commercial Boulevard," Town
Manager Connie Hoffmann wrote in a
report to commissioners.
Proposals were solicited from two
firms that have continuing contracts
with the town: Architectural Alliance
and Calvin Giordano.
Architectural Alliance was selected

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Three
days of fun, featuring food and wine
tasting, live entertainment and a
skimboarding and dance competition,
get under way here Wednesday, Feb.
22 .
Billed as a "Festival by the
Sea," the merriment starts with the
11Ith annual "Taste of the Beach,"
sponsored by the LBTS Chamber of
Commerce.
Thirty-three restaurants and
vendors are taking part with the
sampling scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m.


Wednesday in a tent at 4501 N. Ocean
Drive. It' s in the parking lot across
from Town Hall at El Mar Drive
and El Prado, a half block north of
Commercial Boulevard.
Liquor companies will be on hand
with new wines for tasting, and a draft
beer station is planned.
Toucan Blue, a duo who appear
regularly at Aruba Beach Caf6, will
provide live music. Silent and Chinese
auctions are planned.
Guy Contrada, chamber vice
president and senior manager of
Aruba Beach Caf6, is chairing the
event for the fifth year.
See FESTIVAL on page 24


Pompano Beach Congressional
candidate Kristin Jacobs is $1.4
million behind in campaign funding
and has no endorsements from highly-
valued party members. At this point
in her two-week-old campaign, her
"bandwagon" more resembles a little
red wagon. That doesn' t lessen her
euphoria over her decision to run.
"The more I think about it, everything
I have done in the last 20 years has
moved me closer to this place: I' m
eyes wide open and doing it anyway,"
Jacobs said.
Jacobs' District 2 County
Commission seat, won in 1998, is
term-limited in 2014. For the last five
years running for congress has been
on her mind. Two weeks ago when
Congressman Allen West vacated the
22nd District for one more politically
suited to his ideologies, she knew it
was time to stop thinking and take
action "If I waited until I had it all
figured out, I never would do it," she
said. "I had to begin."
She filed, she opened a bank

Pompano Beach Rev.
Eddy Moise, Jr. believes
there is more to his job
than delivering a sermon on

pastor that just gets up and
preaches on Sunday. I want to
see the church render service
to the community," he said.
One of the services Bethel
A.M.E. will render this month
is "Real Talk," a forum for
young men ages 13 to 18
aimed at helping them with
the attitude, lifestyle and
skills necessary to become
productive citizens.
"oung men are

the state.
Students compete on
Feb. 25 from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. at the Emma Lou Olson

beginners to advanced. Three
winners from each category
are selected to perform at
the winners' recital at 7 p.m.
at the Emma Lou Olson
auditorium. The event is free

"Their drop-out rate is higher
than girls' and they enter the
criminal justice system at a
greater rate. We want to begin
this dialogue. If young men
are not guided properly they
become victims themselves
Of COmmit a crime which
impacts the community at
every economic level. There
should be no separation of
church and state here."

Deerfield Beach
- Residents in Independence
Bay are elated with the city
commission' s new zoming
category that regulates the
heavy industry acreage
adjacent to their homes. Patty
Donovan, president of the
homeowners' association
there said this week, "We feel
we won the Super Bowl."
After months of discussion
between the residents and the
landowners of the industrial
property, commissioners
approved text amendments
to the code that eliminates
bio-medical waste facilities,
crematories, metal shredding
operations, unenclosed junk
yards, bulk liquid petroleum
storage, penal institutions, and
added protective requirements
to numerous land uses.
In the give and take
between residents and


those attending a District 4
meeting that while the city
"compromised quite a bit"
it was still "able to put in
controls to protect us from
some nasty stuff. [T]he public
showed up and swayed the
city commission."
Property owners in the
new zone are fearful that the
restrictions will reduce the
value of their land. Businesses
already existing in the new
zone will not be affected.

landowners, the city made
a number of concessions to
accommodate the business
interests.
"What impressed us
most was the effort by the
city," Donovan said. "City
Commissioner Bill Ganz
knew it was an uphill battle,
but he kept on trying and
meeting with us."
Donovan said City
Attorney Andy Maurodis, his
assistant Sharon Diaz, City
Manager Burgess Hanson,
and Planning Director Jerry
Ferguson came to a two-hour
meeting to answer questions
on both sides of the issue.
"They were all wonderful. It
has renewed my faith in city
government," Donovan said.
In the end, the chief
concern of the homeowners
was an allowance in the new
zoning category for bio-
medical waste incineration
and crematories. Ganz wanted
bio-medical waste companies


eliminated completely
and Commissioner Marty
Popelsky wanted the same
thing for crematories, despite
the fact two have existed
here for some time without
incident.
The motion to approve the
zoning amendment passed
with those two land uses
struck from the code.
"This has not been an easy
process, "Ganz said. "Not
matter what you do, you make
some people unhappy. But
there are no bad guys here,
just a bad situation.

Keep the Lighthouse operational
Last week, The Pelican editorial urged readers to support the continuation of
the Hillsboro Lighthouse as a beacon to mariners.
A complaint regarding the plight of the sea turtle has brought the U.S. Coast
Guard to consider three positions regarding the lighthouse:

1. Discontinue the operation of the light
2. Obscure portions of the light
3. Continue normal activity of the lighthouse

While we have been long-time supporters of sea turtles and their safety, there
comes a time when human safety trumps lower animals. This is that time. We
strongly believe that the Hillsboro light is a major element in keeping mariners
safe from the reef and rocks that lie beneath the waters off our coastline. Ship
wrecks were common before the light stretched over the Hillsboro Inlet.
We also believe that lights on the beach that can be "turtle-friendly" should
follow that code. Cities on the coast have spent thousands of dollars changing
lights for the purpose of protecting the sea turtles.
Those changes have saved thousands of hatchlings who follow the light of
the moon instead of the urban lights that have led them to the highways. A team
from Nova Southeastern University further protects the hatchlings by marking
nests to keep humans away. State laws have been passed on behalf of the turtles,
all very good things to safeguard these wonderful animals.
But then, we believe that we humans are also wonderful.
If you have an opinion regarding the future of the Hillsboro Lighthouse, here
are ways to let the Coast Guard know where you stand. The final decision will
be made in April, and public input will be a significant part of the decision.
Email LTJG Andrew Haley at andrew.s.haleyeuscg.mil or contact him via
phone at 305-415-6748 no later than April 20.

Change municipal election date

and save money
To the Editor:

Should the Deerfield Beach City Commission vote to save the city $52,500?
According to the city charter 6.01, the commission has the power to call for
regular and special elections as may be required. The choice here is relatively
simple. If the commission chooses to hold the next municipal election in
November of 2012 to coincide with the presidential election, two things would
be accomplished, a cost savings and a greater participation in the election.
According to the Supervisor of Elections, the election held in November 2012
would cost $14,500 while the election held in March 2013 would end up costing
$67,000. The change should be a no-brainer.
The change could be formulated so those incumbents who are not elected
could hold their seats until the installation date in March. The president is
elected in November but not sworn in until January so it is not an unusual
concept. It has been suggested that those not re-elected would be lame ducks
and could do damage in the interim. It still takes three votes to do aln) thine., so
let' s hope that there are at least three commissioners who would do what is best

Say 'n o' to sea grasses
To the Editor;
Please, please, please, if you care what our beach front looks like tell the
commissioners that we don't want dune grass, sea oats or other plants on our
main beach, even in spots.
The city is writing a grant application to get money to put plantings on
the beach. Basically these grasses are weeds and they spread like wild. Even
placed in spots, they spread.
The city is hoping to prevent sand from blowing and the cost of clean up.
Very short sighted. The view of the beach people have when walking, sitting
and riding along the beach is what our beach is all about. If the view is obscured
by plantings our beach will suffer.
Please email the commissioners and tell them no plants or grass on the
beach. Ask your friends to send emails too.
Joe Miller is the commissioner in the beach area, make sure to email
him. jmilleredeerfield-beach.com or email: pnolandedeerfield-beach. com,
mpopelsky edeerfield-beach. com, bganz edeerfield-beach. com,
bpreston edeerfield- beach. com

ED's note: The city is going for a Coasal Partnership Initiative grant of
$30,000 which must be matched by another $30,000 to plant sea oats in "hot
spots" where sand blows onto the sidewalk and road during storms. The
budget to remove sand this year is $22,000. City' s match will come from pier
renovation budget. City sources say the grasses also help prevent erosion.

The three day, 12th Annual Keeper
Day celebration last weekend began
with a dinner at the Lighthouse Point,
or LHP, Yacht Club. This year' s
Keepers are newly retired Doreen
Gauthier, 33-year director of the
Doreen Gauthier LHP Library, and
Officer Alike McDace who, before his
death, had served the city for 34 years.
Twelve years ago, then
CJ cLhommissioner Jane Mcaug lin
had the inspiration for Keeper Days.
The city and business community
rallied their support. And the three-
day event became tradition. What
was not welcomed was the ominous
weather which eventually cancelled
the traditional parade except for a few
diehards who pulled their floats to Dan
Witt Park for a shortened version of
the parade and other activities.
The finale on Sunday, Feb. 12
featured family sports day from 1 to
4:30 p.m. at McDonough Park.
About the Keepers
Michael Mowat McDace When
Police Officer Michael McDace
passed away on Jan. 5, 2011, he was
mourned by countless residents.
His sense of humor is best
expressed in a poem he wrote just
before his death,

Life is too complicated
Death is too easy
You want to be in the middle, happy
And avoid both ends.
-1. McDace
His family moved from
Birmingham, Michigan to Pompano
Beach in 1960 where McDace
attended and graduated from high

Doreen Gauthier thanks the crowd of well-wish-
ers at the Keeper Days dinner.


He began police work, first as a
volunteer, later graduating from the
Police Academy and beginning his
career with the LHP where he became
known for his kindness, humility,
sense of humor and successes in crime
prevention.
He served as president of the
Fraternal Order of Police. After a brief
retirement, he returned to work in the
code enforcement department for the
city of Lighthouse Point, serving the
city for 34 years.
He was an enthusiastic Dolphin
fan, loved cars, boating, fishing and
weight lifting. His wife, Arlene, and
daughters, Lisa, Shelly, and Lori,
and grandsons, Mikey and Danny are
honored to have Alike McDace chosen
as a Keeper in Lighthouse Point in
2012.
Doreen Gauthier

As a committee member and
historian, Doreen has helped nominate
many Keepers over the years and this
year she became one herself. She
says, It' sa distinct honor to join the
ranks of our city' s most dedicated
people. It' s a remarkable culmination
of my nearly 33-year career in LHP.

His wife, Arlene, says, "Alike

Pompano High. It didn't hurt that he
drove a red Mercury convertible. At a

In 1969 Alike moved into LHP
and became the owner of Pompano

my Dad, the dapper former
sheriff who was rarely seen in
public without a coat, sweater
vest and tie. We all wondered
how he managed to get such
a wonderful suntan. Mother
could not tolerate the sun, so
she passed the time playing
bridge and joining the ladies
who lunch."
She continued, "I got my
first job as a librarian in the
Pompano Beach library in
1978. In 1979 I was offered
the directorship of the LHP
library and that' s how my


history here began."
She was the only full
time employee in the library
which was then a store front
with 1,800 sq. ft. of space,
located in the Venetian Isles
Shopping Center, wedged
between an alteration shop
and a laundromat.
Between the five moves
from that humble beginning
to the current state-of-the-art
library, Doreen met the love
of her life, Bill Gauthier, who,
she says, willingly played
second fiddle to her job. She


smiles relating that Bill was
a yacht captain, and she can't
swim. Bill bowled. She read.
Bill played golf. She cooked.
Mostly we loved and lived for
each other every moment until
his death."
Gauthier, with her degree
from Midland College in
library science and education,
went on for another degree
in library administration at
University of South Florida
and reached that goal in
1996, completing 36 graduate
hours in three semesters and


one summer session while
working full time.
When Gauthier announced
her retirement in 2011,
County Commissioner, Chip

Tran and Tri-Rail. In that
position, she sponsored the
Share-A-Bike program.
She also champions
affordable housing and, again,
by bringing several counties
together got a large grant from


the Department of Housing
and Urban Development.
The scope of county
government far outreaches
that of municipal and state
responsibilities, Jacobs said.
Her initiatives have given her
contacts at all governmental
levels from Washington to
Tallahassee.
Broward County has 1.7
million people, the largest
cruise port in the country,
an airport accommodating
10 million passengers
annually, is two-thirds fragile
Everglades and is bordered by
eroding beaches.
"The issues facing me
far outstrip hers, population-
wise and in diversity," Jacobs
says of Frankel. "I deal
here with many of the same
issues I would deal with in
Washington."
Jacobs already has two
'heroes' in the congress,
politicians whose districts
border the 22nd, Ted Deutch
in the 19th and Debbie
Wasserman Schultz in the
20th.
Among other things, she
admires Deutsch because he is
"a lovely person. Nice people
do get elected," she said.
Schultz is her inspiration
because, "She is so smart.
She is a tireless worker. She
raises kids and still gets the
job done. She epitomizes
someone who uses both sides
of her brain at the same time."


Women, Jacobs believes,
have an affinity for the
struggles of ordinary people.
She was 50 before she bought
her first new car and has made
headlines as the county' s
poorest commissioner.
"Women know how hard
it is to raise a family. Having
strong women in office is so
important," Jacobs said.
A Pompano Beach
resident, Jacobs manages
her busy public life and
home, husband, children and
grandchildren with frequent
retreats into her garden. "It's
Zen-like, earthy, It' s what is
real," she says of her backyard
which serves as a model for
"Naturescapes," a nod to
Florida-friendly landscapes.
Her other release is
running four-to-five miles
several times a week. It
started out as a walking
exercise to strengthen a knee.
She kept adding distance to
the walk, and then one day,
she broke into a run.
She found such "tjoy" in
the effort that she entered
a Dunn' s Run and was
"smoked" by three 80-year-


old men. She runs now not
for speed but to get "a lot of
thinking done" and to "be in
the moment."
Jacobs is firm in her
conviction that she is the best
prepared person in the district
to run for the House seat.
Her constituency is in coastal
cities from Dania Beach to
Juno and a few areas where
the map jogs westward such
as Deer Creek, Parkland
and some of Coral Springs.
It favored Democratic
presidential candidates in the
last three elections.
Congressman West [R]
spent more than $3 million to
get elected in 2010. Deutch
won his district with a lot
less, $408,308, Wasserman-
Schultz with $754,775.
"We need a real change [in
Washington]. It is not enough
to say outrageous things and
pander to certain groups.
We need solutions, not
posturing. We're not leaving
our grandchildren what the
Greatest Generation left us.
"I know I am prepared. I
am so confident that I am the
one to represent this district,"
Jacobs said.

account and put up a website.
She made phone calls to
people "who have been
asking me for years when I
was going to run." Jacobs
response was positive. "I kept
hearing 'Run, Kristin, Run,'"
she said this week.
Jacobs currently faces
former West Palm Beach
mayor Lois Frankel in the
August Democratic primary.
Frankel has a big head
start. Last week, Broward
County Commissioner Sue
Gunzburger endorsed Frankel
as have party headliners Betty
Castor, Nan Rich and Alex
Sink. Her bank account, at last
report, stands at $1.4 million.
Jacobs, 52, is unperturbed.
"I ran a countywide campaign
for county commission on
$10,000," she recalls of her
entry into politics. "Money is
important to reach the voters,
but I ran before without
resources. I connected with
the people.
Choosing a spot midway
in the district, Jacobs will
hold her campaign kickoff
at Deerfield' s historic old
schoolhouse next to city hall,
242 NE 2 Street, Monday'
Feb. 20 at 3 p.m.
Jacobs launched herself
onto the county commission

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. "My 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 1, 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 t~wo residences allows
small pets. Mautner says, "if
the resident can care for them.
Our staff assists residents
with bathing, dressing and
groommng, 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."


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 tqwo people
are my life savers.
Mautner, who is a seasoned
executive in this field, wKas
asked how these Inns differ
from other rental assisted liv-
ing residences.,
She replied, We do all of
the services one expects. The
difference is in the excep-
tionally caring staff. WNe'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.

30,000 expected
at June event

By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF

Wilton Manors
- On Monday, the Rainbow
Business Coalition, or RBC,
became the third organization
in three years to take over the
city' s annual Stonewall Street
Festival.
In a Jan. 6 letter to the city,
Ellen M'edner of M'edner &
Friends, which ran Stonewall
in 2011, wrote that she was
not interested in running
it again. "After careful
consideration I have chosen
.. not to continue with the
remaining two years of our
three-year contract."
In 2010, Pride of Greater
Fort Lauderdale produced
Stonewall event. Pride, which
has since been dissolved,
failed to pay $5,114 owed to
police officers hired to work
security.
This year' s festival,
renamed Stonewall Summer
Pride, will be held June
24 along Wilton Drive.
According to the event permit
filed with the city, 30,000
people are expected to attend.
Reece Darham, owner of
Island City Health & FitneSS
in Wilton Manors and cO-
chair of the event, said the
RBC changed the name to
"disassociate ourselves" with
previous organizers.
"We wanted to start with a
fresh approach," said Darham,
whosadded thatcthe evet will

pride and "not necessarily gay
pride.
Stonewall, which began on
Wilton Drive in 2000, recalls
the 1969 Stonewall Riots,
in New York City where

rtesed tdrepesbted lio Iment
by police.
Included in the festivities,
said Darham, will be a
parade, V.I.P. party, live
entertainment and a family-
friendly event at Hagen Park.

Before
Henny Oermaier had talked about
wanting a beautiful new smile
since her first appointment but she
was very apprehensive about such
extensive work. Her biggest fear
was that her smile would look fake.
Then one day the phone rang and she
informed Dr. Boccuzzi that the time
had come "My front tooth just broke
-I'm not in pain but we need to start
work on my new smile."


After
Henny allowed me full artistic
control on her smile with only one
request "It has to look natural. Have
a big smile, and In ant to feel like
me, not someone with her face full
of brand new teeth."
My primary focus was function and
comfort, but with today's innova-
tions In as able to put just as much
emphasis on the look. I adjusted
her gum height in the office, and we
achieved her request a beautiful
NATURAL smile.


Dr. Boccuzzi show s exuberance with t

More and more men and
women are visiting their
dentists searching for help
beyond fillings or crowns.
That something more has to
do with their own perception
of their attractiveness.
But who determines the
essential beauty of another
person?
Dr. Jaline Boccuzzi
answers that question.
'"That's why I hand the
patient a mirror and ask
them what they see. Even
if their teeth or smile is
disfigured, mangled or less
than perfect, I don't point
out any patient's faults," she
says. "My goal is to correct
what bothers them, so the
person feels good. I strive
to enhance a person's own
beauty."
There is no lack of
willing patients. "I am truly
passionate about the practice
of dentistry and now, facial
enhancements. Why not
feel good and comfortable?"
Smiling with confidence,
Dr. Boccuzzi, opens her
computer with examples
of her work. Photos of
patients who have undergone
cosmetic procedures define
the "before" and "after"
improvements.
From beautiful teeth
to lifted jowls and age
"frowns" changing to a
more pleasing position,
these patients seem to have
shed years and have had
beauty restored.
But Dr. Boccuzzi is a
dentist first. She analyzes
the patient's oral health and
adds that she is frank about


he outcome of David Mccirr's new smile.

what those apparent needs
are.
Moving into cosmetic
dentistry has been thrilling
for this young dentist.
Perhaps that's because so
many patients are leaving
with new outlooks for
the future after these
procedures.
She says she begins by
correcting what bothers
them. And that could be
anything.
For eyebrows, Dr.
Boccuzzi chooses Botox
Cosmetic injections because
there are no "radical
changes; but subtle changes
in the facial appearance take
place within 14 days and last
three months.
And, according to Dr.
Boccuzzi, there's nothing to
suggest the patient has "had
work done."
Radiesse is a filler that is
injected to increase collagen
production, reducing signs
of aging and lifting the
volume beneath the skin.
The production of collagen
continues long after the
procedure. Juvederm is
still the best product for
plumper fuller lips it's
like a mini balloon soft.
'"The patient can see an
immediate change. Most of
the injective procedures last
about 8 to 10 months." says
Dr. Boccuzzi.
From teeth to other
issues, this dentist is
prepared to help.
One of the most popular
request from patients is
teeth bleaching.
For whiter teeth, Dr.


Boccuzzi's current favorite
is KOR, a whitening agent
that restores the teeth's
ability to absorb oxygen.
'"This procedure is a definite
WOW! factor."
Patients with
malocclusion, or crooked
teeth, can expect to have
Other problems if the
alignment is ignored.
"Without straightening the
teeth, the patient is more
susceptible to periodontal
disease. And in some cases
malocclusion can cause
stress on the teeth and jaws."
"Jaw discomfort can
cause headaches, jaw mal-
alignment, and wearing of
enamel," Dr. Boccuzzi says.
"We study the jaw and,
with the proper correcting
procedure, we can move
the teeth into alignment or
allow the jaw to slip into a
more comfortable position."
Dr. Boccuzzi is an
accreditation candidate of
the American Academy
of Cosmetic Dentistry, or
AACD,, and many patients
who have their own dentists
often see her for cosmetic
reasons.
"It's a rigorous course
for the AACD," she says.
'"There are only about
400 dentists with this
accreditation worldwide.
After completing the five-
year course, tests and oral
exams, there are continuing
courses required to keep the
accreditation."
And she plans to
continue in the field along
with other research.
In 1988 Dr. Boccuzzi


graduated from Tallahassee
Community College with
her Dental Hygiene degree.
While working as a
hygienist, Dr. Boccuzzi
realized she enjoyed being
in the dental field, but
wanted more.
She obtained a Merit
Scholarship, moved to
Boston, MA, and in 1995
was awarded her doctorate
from Tufts University,
School of Dental Medicine.
In advanced training,
Dr. Boccuzzi is certified in
Invisalign procedures.
She has received
advanced training at
Dawson Center for the
Advancement of Dentistry
and Rosenthal Institute and
Aesthetic Advantage and


the L.D. Pankey Institute for
Advanced Dental Education
She is a member of
the American Academy
of Cosmetic Dentistry,
American Dental
Association, Academy
of General Dentistry,
Florida Dental Association,
Atlantic Coast Dental
Association and is a member
of Delta Sigma Delta,
an international dental
fraternity.
Whatever your concern:
fear, final result, finances,
missing some or all teeth,
gummy smile, spaces,
medical issues; come meet
Dr. Jaline Boccuzzi and allow
her to answer any of your
questions. You will know
that you're in the right office.

Foudy became our pastor,
we began to expand the
school. Our funds went
toward construction costs.
Since his arrival we have
added a multi-purpose
building, an outdoor gym,
named after me, six new,
fully furnished classrooms.
We have 600 children from
pre-K through eighth grade
attending St. Coleman School.
Every piece of electronic
equipment, including teacher
laptops, smart boards and two
computer labs, was paid for
with money from the festival.
"Our kitchen has a new
walk-in refrigerator and
freezer. We have installed
a security system. The gym
needs to be maintained as do
the playing fields. Bathrooms
need to be renovated. There' s
always a need and we' ve been
there to fill it."
He continues. "Hearing
that our ITBS math and
reading scores put our school
in the top 10 percent of the


nation making us a first class
school is something to be
proud of, and we are."
"When the Festival ends,
we celebrate with a workers
ball. Shortly after that, we
begin to plan for next year,
always learning from what
worked and didn't work this
year. I have decided that next
year will be my 30th and last
Italian Festival. It' s a good


time to step down and pass
the chair to another who cares
as much as I do."

This dentist also was
deeply involved in the
city' s Parks & Recreation
Department. He enjoyed


coaching baseball and football
and says, "I worked hard
to get a bond issue passed
to renovate our fields. The
success of that bond and the
resulting fields are a source
of satisfaction for me. I also
worked on and chaired the
Advisory Committee for
many years. We achieved
a lot, and I was happy to be
involved."

meal, prepared by Dominic

pre 3arino gallons of tomato
sauce. In fact, all of these
years, the core group of that

He continued talking
about the growth of the
festival and what the money
has accomplished. "Our
first project was to convert
the old church into a parish
hall. This took more than the
proceeds from one festival,
but we did it. We redid the
kitchen. Although my kids
had all graduated from St.
Coleman School, I wanted it
to continue to be an institution
that provided the best moral
education in our city. This
has been my ongoing
motivation.

she, her family and friends
enjoyed an evening of great
food, music and dancin .
But Bea s life and her
challenges the challenges she
has survived inspirational to
those who might feel life haS
been unfair ,. .
Looking at Bea s infectious
smile, a smile that is always
returned, it's hard to imagine
that she ever experience a
moment that was less than
joyful.
She remembers hiding in
her family's basement at the
age of five when she lived in
the small town of Bialystok,
Russia.
"Stalin and Hitler sought
the Jews," says Bea. "Some

Bea's three brothers had
been pressed in the armies of

Sharp leaving

finance post

Lighthouse Point Fi-
nance director Terry Sharp is
retiring in June and the city
is seeking his replacement.
Sharp, 60, has held his posi-
tion since 2005 and makes
$105,000 a year. Because of
the city's small size, his de-
partment also handles person-
nel, workers' comp and risk
management duties. "I think
the mayor is looking for a
jack-of-all-trades,"' Sharp said
this week.
Sharp came to Lighthouse
Point after being Director of
Finance for the City of Fort
Lauderdale. He said he is
retiring to "take advantage
of his good health, travel, do
volunteer work and enjoy my
family."
The job description is
fully explained on the city's
website. Sharp said he hopes
someone will be in place
before May to work with him
on the city budget.

Pompano CRA loans help small businesses start-up, expand


BY MICHAEL D'OLIVEIRA
PELICAN STAFF

Pompano Beach About
three years ago, Andy
Cherenfant's business hit a
wall. Short on capital and
unable to expand Tropical
Elegance, an event d~cor
company he started with
his wife seven years before,
Cherenfant turned to the
City of Pompano Beach's
Microenterprise Business
Loan Fund for a $25,000 loan.
Previously confined to
small jobs, Cherenfant said


Vice Mayor George
Brummer and his wife
recently attended the latest
graduation exercises at the E.
Pat Larkins Center of business
applicants.
I\ly wife and I have been
coming here since the first
[graduation] and the crowd
here certainly outnumbers the
ones we've seen in the past,"
said Brummer.
One graduate, Yolanda
Robinson, heard about the
program through her brother.

the infusion of capital paved
the way for Tropical Elegance
to take on bigger customers.
"It pretty much transformed
our whole company. We've
doubled our sales in [the last]
three years," Cherenfant said.
Now this small business is
working with corporate clients
and Cherenfant gives credit to
the upfront capital for making
it a success.
Started in 2006, the
Microenterprise Fund gives
small business owners who
either live or base their
business in Pompano's


Northwest Community
Redevelopment Area, or
CRA, access to low-interest
loans up to $25,000.
"It's basically for start-up
or existing small businesses,"
said Susan Kores, program
director for the Center. Loans
range from $500 to $25,000
and are funded through the
NM' CRA. Kores says 42
loans have been approved
totaling $650,000.
"The program] gives people
the opportunity to step up and
be all they can be," said Floyd
Johnson, NM' CRA director.


Applicants begin with a
formal business plan that is
reviewed by a board.
Sydnee Renard at SunTrust
Bank in Lighthouse Point and
Robert Sewick, president and
CEO at Florida Shores Bank
in Pompano Beach, sit on the
board.
"They have to be on their
toes," said Sewick.
The loans are considered
"high risk" and the board
requires all applicants to
participate in a business
training program. The course
is free.

"ave. Then you get the board
under your feet, slide out and
ride the wave back," Corey
Mahoney, co-owner of Alley
Oop with Jason Wilson,
explained. "In surfing you're

gets under way at 6 p.m.
Saturday in front of the

loose and have a good time
on the dance floor, the dance
battle is a great way to have
some fun and put your skills
to the test," Wilson says.

A skimboarding competition with
amateur and professional categories is
planned next week during a three-day
festival in Lauderdale-By-The- Sea.


DJ Woody B will provide the

what the restaurants are doing
now. "
"We've come a long way
since the first 'Taste of the
Beach,"' said Judy Swaggerty,
chamber executive director.
"It gets bigger and better
every year, and Guy gets the
credit for all the hard work he
puts into it."

Patricia Mae Dawson,
born Sept. 19, 1927 in
Wellston, Ohio to parents
Virgil Walter and Alice Alae
Chambers, passed away after
a long joyful life on Feb. 11,
2012.
Patricia, or Pat as most
knew her, was the tom-boy
of the family, a rambunctious
little choir girl who loved
to run around her father's
department store and later
became the first "drummer
oirl" in the Wellston High
School band. While dabbling
with a modeling career and
attending Ohio University,
Pat met her true love, William
"Bill" Hoffman Dawson, on a
blind date. They married three
months later. Their love lasted

MO} yars until Bill's death in
Bill and Pat had three
sons, William Jr., David and
Robert. Due to Bill's position
with Capitol Records, they
travelled throughout the
country. In California, Pat
opened the "Yarn Art Studio,"
where she sold crafts and gave
lessons. Bill and Pat finally
settled down in Pompano
Beach in 1986.
In Pompano, Pat became
involved with the Diabetes
Center of North Broward
Hospital and the First
Presbyterian Church giving
joy and laughter to children as
"Jingles the Clown."
In full makeup, Pat would


dance, sing and play with the
children. Pat also read biblical
stories to the Sunday school
children of the "Pink Church."
Pat eventually recorded her
readings which the children
still enjoy today. Pat was the
church s moderator of the
deacons and Presbyterian
Women and the 2011 recipient
of the Silver Angel Award in
"recognition of her selfless
service to others".

by se aensd Vrgid h d
Alice, her husband William,
her sister Alice and her son
David. She is survived by
her sons William and Robert,
her grandchildren Jesse,
Nina, Raymond, Patricia,
and Danielle, her great
grandchildren Cyrus, Isabelle,
Jazmyn, Aspen Rain, Faith,
Attica Rome, and Genevieve.
Funeral services will be
held 11 a.m. on Saturday Feb.
18 at the First Presbyterian
Church, 2331 Northwest 26
Avenue, Pompano Beach.

requested, she will also make
an assessment of a family' s
need for such resources and
point them in the right direc-

"At the end of the day, we
hope the young people who
attend the forum will evaluate
their current state of affairs
and abstain from all that is
negative and interferes with
their productive futures," Mc-
Cray said.

Pompano Beach attorney
Johnny L. McCray, Jr. is co-
ordinating the event and will
host the forum.
In his practice, McCreay
deals with lots of teenagers
in trouble and has a speech
he makes when taking their
cases. "It' s about the facts of
life, how they must project
a good image, how appear-
ance and actions have much
to do with racial profiling and
the consequences of a life of
crime. Your circumstance in
life doesn't mean you have to
do w\ 11ong." McCray said ab-

A native of the city,
McCray attended Coleman El-
ementary School, Nova lower
schools and Howard Univer-
sity where he was a Carnegie
Fellow. He has practiced
here since 1984 and serves
as a youth mentor and Little

they both fell in love with
dancing. In 1946, Bea and
Leo bought an old farm house
in Connecticut and turned it
into a restaurant. Life was
again tough, and this time
instead of a basement, they
lived in the attic of the house.
After Leo died, Bea and her
two daughters, Shirley and
Saundra, moved to Miami
where Bea met Phil Gonchor,
a retired plumber with a love
of dancing.
They married and found lots
of time to dance in retirement.
Shirley recalls one day
coming home from work to
see a live television show that
featured "older" people.
Says Shirley, "I turned to
my sister and said mother
should be on that show." And
before long Bea and Phil
danced into the camera's eye.
The Pelican congratulates
Bea and her courageous
family for finding the best
parts of life and holding onto
them.
Happy birthday, Bea!

Hoteliers and residents
in the south end of town are
complaining that rates are
exorbitant since the town
changed its water and sewer
billing methods.
Brown suggested asking
Burton what should be in a
sewer reserve fund and legally
restricting those funds to be
used only for sewer repairs.
Brown said all toilets in
his 52-unit condominium
were checked for leaks which
resulted in a savings of
180,000 gallons of water.

Hoffmann wrote.
Scot Sasser named

In other business, LBTS
commissioners chose Scot
Sasser as the new vice mayor,
replacing Stuart Dodd, who '
by code could not retain the
position for another term. The
vote was 4-1, Commissioner
Mark Brown dissentin .
Dodd nominated S sser for
the position, notin "He has
shown meticulous attention to
detail, which has sometimes
driven us all crazy.
Brown said his first vote
as a commissioner was also
his worst nightmare, having to
choose between "two equally
qualified people and two


friends." He referred to Sasser
and Commissioner Chris
Vincent.
Brown described the posi-
tion as one of chairing meet-
ings in the mayor's absence
and ceremonial responsibili-
ties. Brown gave Sasser the
edge in chairing meetings.
"I ve never seen anyone so
well prepared, and he has a
grasp of the rules.
But he added that the
mayor has missed only one
meeting in two years, and
so he also gave the edge to
Vincent for the ceremonial
role, since Sasser is frequently
out of town on business.
That s when Vincent stepped
in and said, "This isn' ta race
for vice mayor." He seconded
Dodd s motion, and Sasser
was elected.

Rob hicCaughan, was hon-
ored by the Florida Animal
Control Association with
its top award, "Outstanding
Agency of the Year."
Animal Control officers
David Aycock and Jason
Soldini make up the depart-
ment.
The award letter high-
lighted some of the efforts of
the department that led to this
year' award.
Those included free trap-
ping programs for stray cats
affecting residents, a reduc-
tion of animals trained for
fighting, leash laws and other
laws directed to pet owners.
The city works closely
with Broward County Animal
Control employees in spay
and neuter programs.
The agency also provides
information for pet owners
regarding hurricane prepara-
tion for pets.
Aycock has been the city s
animal control officer since


1987. He earned his certifica-
tion as an animal control of-
ficer in 1993. In 1998 he was
certified as a police officer.
He is an authority on dog bite
prevention and has trained
hundreds of postal and utility
workers to be safe and avoid
bites.
Soldini is a certified ani-
mal control officer.
His area of expertise is
abuse investigations and
emergency management relat-
ing to animals. Jason leads in-
vestigations and prosecutions
in dangerous dog cases.
For more information on
animal control and the ser-
vices call 954-786-1313.
Other numbers important
to pet owners are: Broward
County Animal Control, 954-
359-1313, Humane Society
of Broward County, Humane
Society of Broward County,
954-989-3977 and the Wild-
life Care center, 954-524-
4302.


Lighthouse Point The
city has received an Urban
Forestry Grant which, with
matching funds of $7,800,
will pay for the pruning of
400 trees. A contract for
$15,600 was awarded to Flori-
da Coast Services Tuesday
night. The company's price
was 15 percent lower than
others who responded to the
bid request. Also on Tuesday,
commissioners agreed to seek
a Department of Transporta-
tion grant for $286,000 for
solar lighting on Lighthouse


Point Drive. The funding
won't be available until 2015-
16, City Administrator John
Lavisky told the commission.
The lights will not be in
the same style as the big blue
solar street lights on NE 44
Street which have caused
some controversy. Lavisky
said tca hll ala y y is improving
and the lights, if funded, will
be smaller. Battery life for the
units is expected to be five
years and for the solar panels,
25 years.

Competition set for
Feb. 25 at KiwaniS
Clubhouse

By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF

Wilton Manors Almost
20 years ago, Tom Blanski,
president of the Wilton
Manors Kiwanis Club, started
an event that has become one
of the club's most important
fundraisers: the annual Chili
Cook Off.
I\ly\ brother has had a
chili cook off going up in
Minnesota for close to 30
years now. When I moved to
Florida, I brought the idea to
the club," said Blanski. "They
decided to give it a try."
The event's latest
installment will take place
Feb. 25 from 6 p.m. to
10 p.m. at the Kiwanis
clubhouse, 2749 NE 14 Ave.,
Wilton Manors; tickets are
$10 per person.
This year, along with the
all-you-can-eat house chili
and the chili's entered into
the contest, attendees can
also taste gelato, courtesy
of Shawn & Nick's Gelato
Station in Wilton Manors.
And the Jesters, a Rock &
Roll tribute band, will be

performing.
Blanski estimates last year
20 to 30 pots of chihi were
entered into the contest and
between 250 and 300 people
came to the event. "We were
loaded to the gills last year . .
very full house."

Funds raised from the
Kiwanis Chili Cook Off and
other events benefit local
children and their families
through endeavors like the
backpack program; Kiwanis
regularly donates backpacks
filled with canned and
packaged food to Wilton
Manors Elementary students
who's families have trouble
buying groceries.
According to Wilton Manors
Elementary Principle Mark
Narkier, over 70 percent of
students at the school qualify
for the free and reduced
lunch program. Because over
50 percent of the school's
students qualify for free and
reduced lunch, Wilton Manors
Elementary is Title 1.
To enter a chili for the
contest, call 954-444-4815.
The cost is $20 and includes
up to three chili entries.
Michael d'Oliveira is a
member of the Wilton Manors
Kiwanis Club.

In March of 2011, with the
help of some family members,
she started T n 11 Funworld,
a non-profit event planning
business for those with special
needs. "We started a business
to give back to those who
have special needs and have
fun doing it," she said.
Robinson is one of the many
graduates hoping to follow
in Cherenfant's footsteps and
secure a loan, one that will
pay for electronic equipment
and special high chairs.

permanent employment, one
of those full-time employees
was hired by Cherenfant, who
works as a loan officer for the
Alicroenterprise program.
Those looking for a job at
the Business Resource Center

Zoning
Continued f~om page 3
There are 80 undeveloped
acres there.
Changmng city election
date would save big,
R bb says
Deerfield Beach- Former
mayor Jean Robb was before
the commission last week
asking that the date of the
next municipal election, now
scheduled for Mar. 13, 2013,
be moved up to the presiden-
tial election Nov. 6, 2012.


Doing so would save taxpay-
ers $52,500 according to the
supervisor of elections office
and likely increase the voter
turnout.
Robb further suggested
that the current commission
remain in place until March
when newly elected officials
are scheduled to be sworn in,
Seats to be decided are Mayor
Peggy Noland's, Dist. 4
Commissioner Bill Ganz and
the District 3 held by Marty
Popelsky who is term limited.
Alayor Peggy Noland said
"It's something we're looking


into, but money for an elec-
tion has not been calculated
into this budget." The city's
cost for a combined ballot is
$14,500, to hold a munici-
pal election in March 2013,
$67,000.
"Smart" planners
conducting sessions on
better street design
Deerfield Beach- Those
Smart Growth folks are back
in town, this time to discuss
the EPA's "Complete Streets
program. Deerfield is one of
15 cities nationwide to be


selected for this free technical
assistance from the U.S. Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency.
Complete streets are designed
for safe access for all users,
motorists, transit riders, pe-
destrians and bicyclists.
Complete streets make it
easy to cross roads, walk to
shops, bike to work. This is
the second award the city has
received through the EPA's
Building Blocks program. The
first award was received last
April discussed growth that
produces economic health,
