Deerfield Beach This city is
experiencing an economic boom that
make the words of Assistant City
Manager Manager Keven Klopp ring
very true. "Deerfield Beach is not
hurting for people wanting to come
here," Klopp said this week. As
evidence, he points to the addition
or expansion of three manufacturing
companies, a newly-signed lease with
a Neighborhood Walmart Market,
the addition of Panera Bread to the
Deerfield Beach Mall, and a free-

Local chiropractor looking to

sponsor five baseball players
By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF

Pompano Beach Dr. Kenneth Arnold is looking for five
children who want to play baseball but need a little financial
help to get on the field.
Arnold, a chiropractor and resident of Pompano is also the
director of Pompano Baseball. He says he' s willing to sponsor
five children by paying for their registration fee and possibly a
baseball glove, cleats or bat. "It all depends on how much they
need," says Arnold.
Pompano Baseball is open to children ages five to 14. The
Eve children picked by Arnold must have been born in the
months of January, February, March and April of 2001 or
in May, June, July, August, September, October, November
and December 2000. "M'e' ve been having some shortage of
participation. I' m trying to take away the issue of the money,
he said. "I thought it would be a win-win situation.
Arnold says he only wants to sponsor children who are
dedicated to playing and will put in extra practice time in
addition to practicing with their teams. "I' m looking for kids
who want to play baseball."
Pompano Baseball' s opening day is Feb. 27. To contact Dr.
Kenneth Arnold, call 954-609-5972.

Kristin Sanders, 15, winner of
the "Red Tails" essay contest at
Tuesday's Deerfield Beach City
Commission meeting. Sanders is
a student at Deerfield Beach High
School and a resident of Pompano
Beach. Kristin won $100 for her
entry that addressed how the movie
inspired her and how she gave
back to her community. Kristin and
three other essay writers met Lt.
Col Leo Gray, one of the last living
Tuskegee Airman.


By Kristin Sanders
DEERFIELD BEACH HIGH SCHOOL

When first asked by the commissioner, "What did "Red Tails" teach you
about believing in yourself, and how do you give back to your community and
country?" a plethora of ideas filled my head.
A more challenging question might have been what didn' t you learn from
the movie, seeing as how the movie instills life lessons ranging from sacrifice to
self-pity.
Although I walked out of the theatre beaming with self-dignity and pride
in the color of my skin, "Red Tails" allowed me to venture somewhere far
beyond skin deep. I was able to feel the pain, the bitterness and the tremor of
Lightning' s lip after being taunted. I felt Colonel A.J. Bullard bite down on his
tongue after being repeatedly embarrassed, as the uniform on his body seemed
to only conceal what was Negro skin.
However, what I also felt was the strength within these men, the
perseverance, and zealousness to fight for what they loved, despite many
obstacles. I learned that along with believing in myself and working tirelessly
towards my goal, adversity cannot faze me. I learned not to quit when
something gets tough but to embrace my many flaws and mistakes and learn
from them.
When speaking on how I give back to my community, I am nowhere near the
world' s most inimitable humanitarian but I try my hardest to help where I can.
Alartin Luther King once said, "Pity may represent little more than the
impersonal concern which prompts the mailing of a check, but true \i mpathy111 is
the personal concern which demands the giving of one' s soul."
This Sunday, a friend and I headed to downtown Fort Lauderdale where we
purchased 100 cheeseburgers and five cases of water for the homeless. As little
as the effort may seem, I' ve never felt more proud of myself. My heart broke
to see so many unfortunate souls lingering around with no hope, no light, but it
was soon mended every time I saw a toothless smile or heard a "God bless you
for this." To witness someone' s body tense up with pleasure due to a mere 59
cents is an experience like no other. The feeling of giving is the best feeling in
the world.
Compared to the sacrifices and feats of the "Red Tails" my efforts are minute
and sometimes go unnoticed, but in my heart, just as I learned in the movie, life
is not always about the glory, but instead about helping others.

Relaxing the rules is

SOmlehimes the b est solution

When a five-star restaurant comes to town, it tends to draw its own crowds.
And crowds who choose high-end restaurants bring with them their wallets.
The wise council of Oakland Park got it. [See related story on page 1]
They' ve had the restaurant, Thai Spice, for a number of years so they waived
a couple of local laws to help the owners expand. We expect their actions will
help keep those gold-lined wallet bearers coming to town.
The laws they waived weren' t serious safety laws. Rather they were parking
requirements.
They agreed that the restaurant, which was 13 parking spaces short of the
required 106 spaces, was worth the risk.
In return the city has cemented a deal that keeps a "destination" eatery
within their city limits.
And that is what most city leaders want: a reason for people to park their
cars and spend their money in their town.
Oakland Park commissioners made the right decision in this case for the
taxpayers of this city. Their willingness to think about the prospect of this
decision has a good chance of increasing business here and introducing other
businesses to a platoon of new buyers who came first for the food.
We tire of blaming our woes on the economy when imagination is always
willing to offer other alternatives.
But alternatives can be risky. We caution all who are willing to toss out
regulations on a whim.
Our local laws are designed first to preserve the integrity and safety of our
communities, but we believe these Oakland Park officials studied that before
approving this local variance.
And this is what we need in government-thoughtful and imaginative
officials who think first of the taxpayer. These times have been and continue to
be hard, but we are all learning to be wiser when it comes to money. And most
of us are a little more open to alternatives.
The Message: Never close the door to imagination.

Every 38 seconds someone in
our country attempts suicide. When
that someone is a loved one who has
successfully completed a suicide,
surviving family and friends are left
wondering why. They experience a
full range of emotions as they try to
understand and deal with their loss.
According to the Florida Initiative
for Suicide Prevention, Inc., or FISP,
there are approximately 25 people
closely connected to each suicide.
These people feel like victims of a
tragedy. A support group can help
those suffering with feelings of loss,
guilt and painful questions, like how
and why did this happen?
FISP provides educational


the survivors of a completed suicide.
What we attempt to do is bring people
together who have this one experience
in common. We hope that the group
will provide a safe place to express
each person' s story, and take comfort
in being in the company of others who
are dealing with the same reality."
In the survivor of suicides support
group Howard says, "I introduce
myself and reassure the group that
t\ c\c\ phing we discuss is confidential.
Then I have each person introduce
him or herself with a partial or full
name, and take turns telling their
stories. What happens is that the
individual members begin to see a
common thread. We are here trying
to make sense of the fact that our
loved one completed suicide and our
world will never be the same. Losing
a loved one to suicide shakes us to the
core. Beyond our grief and mournin ,
we are unable to make sense of
things. We are left to come to terms
with having to reconstruct the very
meaning of life."
In its printed material, FISP
suggests that "there may be much we
do not have in common. Some of
us will have lost access to relatives

Pompano's Apocalypse wins national flag football title


By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAFF

Pompano Beach After
years of defeat, when victory
was finally theirs, the feeling
was one more of relief than
jubilation.
"It really was hard to
celebrate the game because
it was such a relief [to finally
win]. We were so stressed out
we celebrated but it was kind
of suppressed," said Craig
Miller, coach of the Pompano
Beach' s Apocalypse, a flag
football team that won its
first United States Flag &
Touch Football League
Championship in January in
Kissimmee, Florida.
Before winning the
national title, Apocalypse
won four straight state
championships and multiple
world cup games.
"It was great. We' ve been

first one' s always the hardest,"
Said quarterback Brian Baer.
"It' s more satisfaction than
anything else just because
that' s pretty much the pinnacle
of flag football," he said,
adding that he' s still feeling
the victory over a month later.
"Hopefully it' s not our last."
The closest they' ve been
was in 2009 when they
fell short by one point to
QuickStrike, a team from New
Orleans they lost back-to-back
national championship games
to. "It was the same dog grone
team," said Miller. But the
third time must have been a
charm because Apocalypse
finally overcame QuickStrike
33 to 27.
L\ cly game was decided
by the last score of the game
except this one. It looked close
but it wasn' t," said Miller.
"We kind of gave up some
easy scores [near the end],"
said Baer. [But] we were in
control from the start of the


game we held them off."
Miller, Baer and linebacker
Tony Walton credit the victory
to Apocalypse finally adapting
to QuickStrike' s style of play,
which they said differs in
some key areas.
11e IIn as talented a team
as QulickStrike made it thatr
much harder to beat them. We
beat them at their own game,
finally," said Walton.
Started 10 years ago,
Apocalypse has players from
all over Florida including
Tampa, Orlando and Broward,
Miami-Dade and Palm Beach
counties.
"As you win games, more
and more good players want to
play with you. The more you
win the better you get," said
Miller. "It' s really a Florida
all-star team. Most of the
guys on the team have been
semi-pro. We had a couple
of former National Football
League players but we had to
cut them because they weren' t


good enough," he said.
Along with defending
their national title, "this year
we' re going for five state


championships in a row,
which no one has ever done
before," said Miller. "We
believe in ourselves."

Dr. Borges is a native Floridian,
born and bred in Miami. He says, "I
knew I wanted to be a physician just
like my dad whom I accompanied
many times on his visits to patients.
He was an old school physician who
had his own practice and was on call
24 7. He had a pager and he got calls
all day and night. Every patient knew
his phone number. Most of them were
very considerate and didn' t call until
they were really ill. But I remember
countless occasions where Dad was
called away from dinner, theater,
movies, restaurants, and in the middle
of the night."
Dr. Borges, Jr. has a more
predictable life. As a doctor of
Internal Medicine with a specialty in
geriatrics, he and four other physicians
own a practice and they cross cover
for each other. "The advantage of
being part of a group is that the patient
is never neglected, but the physician
still gets to have a life," he says,
smiling. "I have a strong commitment
to spending time with my wife, Cari
and our three children. We have
breakfast and dinner together almost
every night. I think this is vitally
important for the children and for us."
Borges has offices in the Roselli
Building at 3471 N. Federal Hwy.,
suite 202 where he sees both HIO
and privately insured patients. He is
affiliated with North Broward Medical
Center and says, I have a network
of specialists whom I trust and refer
my patients to. We' re multi-contracted
because we feel that HNIO patients
actually get better care than those

medical field, he suggests, "I would
try to make students and residents
more aware of how medicine is
practiced in the real world versus in
a training institution. The factors we
must deal with are not part of their
education. They get no idea of the
realities of medicine like the costs of
tests and the need to request only what
is necessary."
He went on to say, In order to go
into medicine, one must be passionate
about wanting to care for other people.
There' s a minimum of 11 years of
education. All of those years you are
spending going into debt and earning

He' s been a physician for 15 years

He says, "I have yet to see the day that
I get up and don' t want to go to work.
I hope I never lose my passion."
Continuing, "About 95 percent of
my practice is with the elderly. I find
that this population in this area is very

over pills."
While he munched on a late

My office is not overwhelmingly

include an incentive program
The plan will include an
incentive program for the
downtown, general marketing
services and implementation
for a year and coordination
with the Oakland Park Main
Street organization.
The proposal focuses on
four main areas:
1. Preparing marketing
plans with a specific sets
of objectives based on
understanding customers and
competition. Budget can' t
exceed $9,500.
"You need an annual plan
so there is no question about
who does what, which events
will take place and who


will fund them," said Kim
Briesemeister, RMA partner.
"When we implement events,
we want to move at a quick
clip."
2. Prepare four incentive
programs that are integral
to an overall redevelopment
plan that will be marketed to
business and property owners
eligible to apply. Budget can' t
exceed $5,000.
RMA will draft program
applications, resolutions and
legal documents that protect
the city, pending commission
approval.
3. General marketing
services and plan
implementation program.
This consists of implementing
tactics with RMA working
directly with city staff and
Main Street and will include
continued evaluation to
redirect coordinated efforts
as opportunities arise. Budget
can' t exceed $67,600.


Sharon McCormick, RMA
director of communications
and events, will manage the

St. Ambrose Carnival, March 1 through 4, helps fund Catholic

By Michael d'Oliveira
PELICAN STAF

Deerfield Beach In these
times of woe and want, an
18-year tradition helps the
members and clergy at St.
Ambrose Catholic Church do
some things they otherwise
would' t be able to afford.
The 18th Annual St.
Ambrose Carnival, March 1
through 4 at 380 S. Federal
Hwy., raises tens of thousands
of dollars each year for St.
Ambrose' s school.
"It helps us support
programs we could not
normally do," said Principal
Anita Gentile.
According to Gentile, at
one time the school had 400
students. Now the count is
down to 150.
Money raised from the
carnival helps subsidize
tuition costs for struggling
parents. [A lot of parents]

a brand new media center
for the school and some
remodeling costs of existing
facilities.
Volunteer Gail Kammerer,
who has organized the event
since it was first conceived,
says every year she and other
church members aim for
$100,000. The closest they
came, says Kammerer, was
$98,000.
L\ c~ly year we improve

said. "Our goal is always to
try and net $100,000 [but]
we try to keep t \ cI) thing~ at
a reasonable [price] because
you want everyone to come
out and have a good time.
There is no entrance fee
for the carnival but rides,
games and food will cost
attendees.
"It' s geared so you can
have as much fun as you


want," said Kammerer.
Discounts are available for
those who purchase tickets
before Feb. 29. [For a full
list of discounts and the
entertainment schedule, see
St. Ambrose' s ad on page 24.]
This year' s entertainment
includes a karate
demonstration and various
classic rock and country
music bands, including a
Journey tribute band. A blood
mobile will also be parked
at the event, ready to take
donations.
Additionally, to raise
a little extra money, St.
Ambrose' s Pastor Brian
Dalton will be "arrested" by
the Broward Sheriff s Office
and put in "jail" next to the

"We keep him there until
we get enough money to bail

were funded by the town and
through grants.
Commissioner Stuart Dodd
said the town should pay for
the plaque and installation,
apologize to the Friedt family
and put the matter to rest.
"The sign should never have
been removed. That was a
slight on their name."
New time for Feb. 28
commission meeting
Next week' s commission
meeting will start an hour
earlier than usual because of a
lengthy agenda. The meeting
is set for 6 p.m. at Jarvis Hall.
Among the items to be
considered are a design
concept for East Commercial
Boulevard; amending the
sign code; renewal of the
solid waste contract; and
appointment of board
members.

the Friedt family. Mayor
Oliver Parker, mayor at the
time, told the Friedts the park
could' t be named for private
citizens because the town
had received public funds for
improvements.
In renaming the park for
the Friedts, commissioners said
they were correcting a wrong.
The Friedt family
requested the bronze plaque
that bears a short historical
summary about the role of the
family in the town' s history.
Commissioner Mark
Brown said the plaque is a
nice historical marker for
the town, the wording is
appropriate, and he had no
problem supporting it. He
said cost sharing with the
family would be preferable.
He asked what had been done
in the past with monuments
honoring prominent people.


Special to The Pelican
In Broward County,
single-family home sales
increased 15 percent, from
813 to 911, last month
compared to January 2011,
according to the 26,000-
member MIAMI Association
of REALTORS and the local
Multiple Listing Service, or
MLS, systems. Condominium
sales dropped 16 percent in
January compared to a year
earlier, from 1,318 to 1,079.
Statewide sales of existing
single-family homes totaled
12,044 in January 2012, down
5.5 percent compared to the
year-ago figure, according to
data from Florida Realtors
Industry Data and Analysis
department and vendor
partner 10K Research and
Marketing.
Nationally, sales of
existing single-family homes,


townhomes, condominiums,
and co-ops rose 4.3 percent
from December and were 0.7
percent higher than they were
in January 2011, according to
the National Association of
Realtors, or NAR.
"The Broward County
housing market is
experiencing consistent
strengthening and price
appreciation as a result
of robust demand and
diminishing supply," said
Rick Burch, 2012 president
of the Broward County Board
of Governors of the MIAMI
Association of REALTORS.
"Despite a significant
percentage of distressed
sales, prices continue to rise.
Loosening unnecessarily
strict lending standards
would further enhance the
performance of the Broward
real estate market."

of the adjacent Low Vision
Institute, said parking hasn' t
been a problem. He said the
restaurant is "internationally
acclaimed and a little diamond
in Oakland Park we should
preserve and protect.
"With our culinary vision,
it' s so important we keep
this business here," said
Siegi Constantine, executive
director of Oakland Park
Main Street.
"This is a poster child
for why variances are
granted," Commissioner Shari
McCartney said. "The space is
a waiting area and will lessen
the impact of the wait time."
"I m in favor of this,"
Mayor Suzanne Boisvenue
said. "We should be honored
and proud to have a 5-Star
restaurant. I don' t agree
with micromanaging your
parking ."
The second request by
Tatton was to add a bar. Staff
recommended approval of


the restaurant bar and the
commission unanimously
agreed.
Two weeks ago, the
commission turned down
a site plan from Enterprise
Leasing because the company
wanted to extend a buffer
fence instead of constructing a
new one.
But at last week' s meeting,


commissioners agreed by
a 4 to 0 vote to reconsider
their earlier vote of denial of
conditional use approval for
the auto rental business and
installing a two-foot fence on
the existing wall.
Commissioner Jed Shank
abstained from voting due to
a conflict. The item will be
placed on a future agenda.

diners so families aren't out
in the parking lot. It' s not
uncommon for them to wait
one to three hours. ,
Tatton said he wasn t
requesting the variance
to bring in more people
'It' s more about safety and
accommodating customers.
"I know you are all about
code and rules and this and
that," he said. "But the code
was written 30-35 years ago.
It' s time for a little change
in Oakland Park. To become
a culinary destination you
have to make the appropriate
changes so a small business
owner like myself can
continue to compete with the
big boys and maintain our
standards. We want to stay in
Oakland Park, but we want
to maintain our image and
standards," he added.

his firm, could have been a
victim of the county code.
Resnick declined comment.
All three cities are now
governed by the state ethics
code when it comes to outside
employment for elected of-
ficials and income reporting.
Wilton Manors voters also
passed a referendum that ex-
empts volunteer board mem-
bers from the county' s outside
employment provision.
"The voters approved the
change to our charter so our
charter is hereby changed,"
said Wilton Manors City
Manager Joseph Gallegos.
County Commissioner Sue
Gunzburger said voters were
led to believe that state law
is stricter than the county' s
ethics code. "The referendum
doesn' t talk about I lobbl\ in--.
it doesn' t mention the word,"
she said.
Wilton Manors Com-
missioner Julie Carson said
the city spent a lot of time
explaining its ballot questions
to voters.
"I was particularly insulted
and amazed at their underes-

ti ;to on he thouht u od
Manors voters," she said, re-
ferring to the county commis-
sion. "The city spent a great
deal of time educating the
voters." Carson added that she
still might voluntarily disclose
her income.
On Feb. 7, after voting 5 to
4 not to sue, commissioners,
in another 5 to 4 vote, decided
to support any resident who
decides to file a lawsuit, even
going as far as to consolidate
multiple cases and pay for the
legal costs.
"People don't always vote
for what' s right all the time,
but over time they usually get
it right. And I believe that if
they find out that they were
duped, they will deal with
those who they elect at each
election cycle," said Com-
missioner Dale V.C. Holness,
who voted against a county
lawsuit and supporting any
residents who do sue.
Commissioner Stacy Rit-
ter, who also voted against the
county suing but in favor of
supporting any residents who
do, said she was more con-
cerned with the most recent
will of the voters. "I am going
to defer to those cities to
represent their residents under
their home rule authority, the
way we would if we were
in the same position. It was
a bad choice, but the voters
spoke."

Inventory Levels De-
crease
The inventory of residen-
tial listings in Broward Coun-
ty decreased 35 percent from
18,710 to 12,483 over the last
year, reflecting a healthy and
balanced real estate market.
Compared to last month,
the total inventory of homes
decreased four percent. Total
housing inventory nationally
fell 20.6 percent at the end of
January.
"The high percentage of
cash sales in Broward County
reflects the significant pres-


ence of international buyers
who are boosting demand
and ultimately price appre-
ciation," said Ernesto Vega '
president-elect of the Broward
County Board of Governors
of the AllAMI Association of
REALTORS. "In addition to
demand from foreign buyers,
Broward County is attraction
migration from other U.S.
states, second and vacation
homebuyers, and retiring
baby boomers. This activity
will contribute to population
growth and further increase
demand for housing .
Distressed Properties
In January, 49 percent of
all closed residential sales
in Broward County were
distressed, including REOs
(bank-owned properties)
and short sales, compared to
60 percent in January 2011
and 46 percent the previous
month. Contrary to a year
ago, there are now more short
sales being transacted than
REOs.


International Buyers
Fuel Cash Sales
In January, cash sales ac-
counted for 66 percent of all
residential sales, 44 percent of
single-family and 84 percent
of condominium closings.
Nearly 90 percent of
international buyers in Florida
purchase properties all cash.
Nationally, all-cash sales were
unchanged at 31 percent in
January, reflecting the stron-
ger presence of international
buyers in the South Florida
real estate market.

or ARC Broward Culinary
Institute.
"The Traveling Plate
concept was created by the
ARC Broward Culinary
Institute and came to
fruition through a project
of the Leadership Broward
Foundation Class XXX,"
says Jennifer Saltz, a local
professional who is one of
the co-founding members
of this "clandestine dining"
experience. "We offer a
fantastic culinary outing for
foodies."
The concept is simple,
monthly "secret" dmnners are
hosted at unusual venues such
as private homes, warehouses,
lofts, boats or any other locale
with a functional cooking
area.
Guests are treated to
an "underground" dining
adventure whereby a $35
entrance fee provides
unlimited access to a
cornucopia of mouti~I\.lc lt ing~
creations in a novel and
unexpected setting. The
complete three-course meal
is blissfully supplemented
by generous helpings of
champagne and select
vmntages.
On this particular night, the
appetizer portion consisted
of a toothsome antipasto of
Caesar salad in parmesan
cones accompanied by fresh
Mozzarella, aged Provolone,
Prosciutto Di Parma, Genoa
Salami, Pistachio infused
Mortadella, rustic olives and
crispy lavash.
The truly ravenous headed
straight for the central
kitchen area where Chef
De Leon and his able crew
disgorged copious amounts
of Chardonnay Risotto served
with a choice of Rock shrimp,
Green-Lipped mussels, plump
sea scallops, crispy Prosciutto,
asparagus, wild mushrooms,
sweet onions or roasted
chestnuts served with shaved
Reggiano. These sumptuous
dishes were finished with a
light white wine cream and
fines herbes sauce.
The quasi-pyrotechnic
culinary demonstration was
a feast for the eyes as well
as the palate. "We have
many more events planned
and hope it will continue to
be a sustainable endeavor,
says Jon Swergold, an
area attorney and founding
member who was visibly
satisfied by the impressive
turnout and the overall
maelstrom of philanthropic
exuberance on display.

Nonetheless, "we want to
keep it intimate so as to not
compromise quality."
As stated in the literature,
"The ARC Broward Culinary
Institute uses food as a
tool to transform lives for
adults with disabilities and
other life challenges. The
Institute' s non-profit catering
business creates outstanding
culinary experiences in an
ambiance of style and taste
while providing real-world
employment opportunities
for graduates. Proceeds from
the dinners will be used to
fund scholarships for students
with financial barriers so that
they may enroll and complete
the 16-week culinary arts
post-secondary certificate
program."
"Allied Kitchens holds
one or two events such as
this every month to support
various good causes," says
charismatic company President


Bill Feinberg. "We have been
very blessed over the years
and want to make sure to give
back to our community in a
meaningful way."
In addition, the networking
potential is also a substantial
draw for altruistic and
business-oriented individuals
who are eager to mingle
with like-minded peers. Not
surprisingly, the air of mystery
adds enormous cachet to such
events and, consequently,
these entertaining evenings
are expected to sell out rather
quickly.

beaches are in overall good
shape, thanks to effects of a
Hillsboro Inlet sand bypass
operation, which adds about
110,000 cubic yards of sand
to the affected shoreline
annually.
To widen the beaches, the
county would truck about
750,000 yards of sand in from
Central Florida. It is estimated
it would take 37,500
truckloads of sand over three

style change for the patient' s
benefit. I try to put myself
in his shoes and ask myself
how I would feel. I am very
impressed with what the
elderly can do and are willing
to share. Everyone can learn
from them."
Asked how he would
improve the medical field,
he suggests, "I would try to
make students and residents
more aware of how medicine
is practiced in the real world
versus in a training institution.
The factors we must deal with
are not part of their educa-
tion. They get no idea of the
realities of medicine like the
costs of tests and the need to
request only what is neces-
sary."
He went on to say, In
order to go into medicine,
one must be passionate about
wanting to care for other peo-
ple. There' s a minimum of
11 years of education. All of
those years you are spending,
going into debt and earning
nothing. If you' re not dedi-
cated why would you do it? It
takes years of actual practice
before a doctor in today' s
world is free of debt and can
begin to support a family and
save a buck.
Medicmne is not the field if
one is aspiring for wealth."
Dr. Borges's back-
ground and education

sity of Miami College of Arts

care, lab and EKG equipment.
Our female nurse practi-
tioners do all of the basic
women' s exams. If there is
any concern, I' m at hand.
Most women are much more
comfortable with this arrange-
ment."
He' s been a physician
for 15 years and in private
practice forl0, and his passion
for his work has never waned.
He says, "I have yet to see
the day that I get up and don' t
want to go to work. I hope I
never lose my passion."
Continuing, "About 95%
of my practice is with the el-
derly. I find that this popula-
tion in this area is very active
physically and socially and
they want to remain that way.
I help with lifestyle modifica-
tions. I prefer this over phar-
macy intervention. In other
words, I recommend exercise
and diet over pills."
While he munched on a
late lunch of spinach salad
and salmon, he mused, "I
think that the older genera-
tion is an incredible asset and
untapped resource in our so-
ciety. As a geriatrician, I feel
it' s my duty to preserve their
health as much as possible. I
take my time with patients.

whom to share, when to share,
where to share, how to share
and how to answer questions,
especially posed by children.
There is no one size fits all.
Cohen reveals some
startling statistics. In 2010,
there were 39,060 suicides in
the United States. In Florida
there were 2,753. Suicide
is the ninth leading cause of
death in Florida. Suicides are
highest in the age group of 40
to 59.
FISP is sponsoring suc-
cessful support groups in
Hollywood, Weston, Coral
Springs and Miami.
Grieving
Cohen says, "It' s hard not


to blame oneself. We talk
about "Why?," but we will
never know the real reason.
What makes the group helpful
to each member is the support
given to each other. I' ve seen
the members form friendships
and begin to give one another
support through socialization.
They go to dinner and mov-
ies together. The group helps
to educate its members to the
grieving process which is dif-
ferent for every member. The
stages of grief are supposedly:
denial, anger, bargaining,
depression and acceptance.
Those feelings are not always
felt in that order, but are typi-
cally felt during the grieving
process.
Group Comfort
.Ae onhingctonds erinted

Everyone is there for the
same reason and they understand.
The group wants to hear
more about your loved one,
not less.
Everyone understands if


you cry and lets you cry as
much as you need to cry.
The group encourages you
to ask questions and to share
your feelings of shame, guilt,
anger, loss, signs you didn' t
recognize or ignored.
The group offers all who
are affected by the suicide of
a loved one, the alternatives
of hope, support and resourc-
es so that these survivors can
learn to laugh, love and live
again.
About Howard Cohen
Jackie Rosen, executive di-
rector of FISP, says, "Howard
is a wonderful man who has
volunteered to facilitate this
new Oakland Park group. He
is very qualified and has been
trained specifically by FISP to

run tti SiroitdeeSri tr aSup-

caring and understanding, He
is also volunteering his talents
in our SUN program. This
is an acronym for Solutions
Unlimited Now. He will be
working with seniors teaching


problem solving and coping
skills. This program creates a
safe place to share with other
seniors and eliminates the
feeling of being alone, hope-
less and helpless."
Howard made a career
switch after many years as
a banking executive with
Wells Fargo. "I wanted to
do something in the help-
ing field. I wanted to help
others navigate their lives. I
returned to college, choosing
Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity where I graduated with
a master' s degree in mental
health counseling. I now am
a registered mental health
counselor intern with a
practice in Wilton Manors. I

home," Restivo said. "Plus
we see an opportunity to
revive an empty property and
deliver an added economic
boost to the area."
First opened in 1998, there
are now 167 M'almart Neigh-
borhood Markets across the
country, 31 of which are in
Florida.
A fast-growing, upper-
end fast-food restaurant,
Panera Bread, is coming to
the Deerfield Mall. Located in
the Mall' s southeastern-most
corner at Powerline Road and
Hillsboro Boulevard next to
Publix, the store is now under
construction. Headquartered
in St. Louis, Panera opened
its 1,500th store nationwide
in Alanhatten earlier this
month. The company plans
three more this year in the Big
Apple.
The construction of a
free-standing M'algreens, just
south of Hillsboro Boulevard


on Powerline Road is a mixed
blessing according to Klopp.
The new 75,000 sq.ft.
M'algreens will require the
closing of two other business-
es: Short' s BBQ and an older
Walgreens across the street at
the Deerfield Mall.
M'algreens typically choos-
es high traffic intersections for
their new stores with a trade
area of 20,000 consumers.
Also being demolished is a
long-abandoned Burger King.
The property will wrap around
a 7-11 with entrances off both
Powerline and Hillsboro.
"We look for the best
corners in America from
which to deliver our services,"
M'algreens spokesman Robert
Elfinger said. "In Deerfield
Beach, we think we have
found another great location."
Elfinger said the store is
scheduled to open in late 2013
and will employ 25 to 30
people.

standing M'algreens on Pow-
erline Road that will revitilize
a vacant parcel and eliminate
a decrepit Burger King.
The industrial feather-in-
the cap is SHL Pharma, the
largest privately-held design
and manufacturing company
of drug delivery devices and
healthcare equipment in the
world. SHL has moved to a
45,000 square-foot building
on Jim Moran Boulevard.
According to Klopp, company
owners chose Deerfield Beach
over sites in Boca Raton be-
cause "they saw a better value
here." Company officials
estimate half a billion dollars
in product sales will be gener-
ated from its new location.
The firm will employ between
100 and 150 people.
Another new company
came to the city via the
Greater Fort Lauderdale Alli-
ance that contacted Klopp and
asked if the city could move

fas and Irn eeae rc -

bring it here instead of Palm
Beach County.
The city and Broward
County agreed to partner on
tax breaks for the start-up,
high-tech machine shop that
produces specialized parts
used in aerospace and medical
fields. Deerfield' scommit-
ment is for $8,000 a year for
four years, Klopp said. Feder-
ated will locate in the Quorum
Business Center on Military
Trail and em loy about 60
people. Average salary for the
skilled machinists being hired
is reportedly $48,000. The
company estimates a $14 mil-
lion investment here over two
years. It also looked at space
in Boca Raton.
Chem-Tec, a company
that has manufactured flOW
meters, monitor and valves
from a location on Southeast
12 Avenue for many years de-
cided to move its operation to
a new location on Powerline
Road after the city expedited
the permitting process. "That
helped them make up their
minds to stay here," Klopp
said.
M'almart has leased the
vacant Winn-Dixie Store
at Southwest 10 Street and
Military Trail for one of its
Neighborhood Markets. Ac-
cording to Walmart' s Direc-
tor of Community Affairs
Steven Restivo, the 59,000
sq. ft. store will employ 100
people and should be open
early next year. The markets
sell groceries, pharmaceuticals
and household products at
discount prices.
"We think Walmart can
be part of the solution in
Deerfield Beach for residents
who need a job or want more
affordable options close to

towering element" where
high buildings overshadow
residential neighborhoods. So
officials are trading height for
space, changing the land use
to reduce the maximum height
allowed while reducing the
number of feet a building has
to be set back from the street.
This, said Alfonso, will allow
developers to increase the size
of developments without hav-
ing to build too high.
Along with private rede-
velopment, the city is also
hoping it can spur govern-
ment investment by creating
a Transit Oriented Corridor,
or TOC, and nab one of the
coveted passenger rail stations
that are planned along the
Florida East Coast, or FEC,
railway that runs parallel to
Dixie Highway. Moore said
the city' s chances for a station
are improved because of the
county bus complex currently
under construction at Dixie
and Martin Luther Kin Jr.
Boulevard, which would
enhance any FEC station built
near it.
To go with new com-
mercial and retail tenants,
officials also envision new
residents through mixed-use
development. Instead of just
a traditional commercial area


that people drive to for retail
needs and then drive back
home, Moore said mixed-use
would allow people to live,
work and play in the same
area. "You're keeping your
money in the community," he
said, adding that there would
be affordable residences
available for purchase or
rent. "There must be afford-
ability."
CRA officials are also
working to find new life in
Historic Downtown Pompano.
The CRA Business Resource
Center is located there, exist-
ing businesses have been
encouraged to spruce up their
storefronts and at least one
new business is opening .
Claudia and Linda Du-
Bois, owners of Two Sisters
Juice Company, will soon be
Historic Downtown' s newest
tenants. Claudia, past presi-
dent of the Pompano Beach
Historical Society, remem-
bers the area as a child. "I
have a vested interest in that
area. That' s where we went
to buy shoes and go to the
hardware store, and that' s
why I want to be there."
She said she' s also pleased
with the progress made so
far and looks forward to the
"greatness to come."

board member, said the
previous focus was on single
family homes. "Now, its
MLK' s turn," he said, refer-
ring to Martin Luther Kin '
Jr. Boulevard. "I honestly do
believe its going to happen
[this time]." The NM' CRA
includes Historic Downtown
and stretches from Dixie
Highway west to Powerline
Road and Northwest 36 Av-
enue and south from Atlantic
Boulevard to Copans Road.
Poitier said he' s positive
Pompano will have more
success this time because that
undeveloped and underdevel-
oped land, much of it city-
owned, is being platted and
re-zoned to be more accom-
modating to developers.
According to Carlton
Moore, liaison to the NW,
CRA Advisory Committee
and former Fort Lauderdale
city commissioner, 80 percent
of the NM' CRA is either un-
developed or underdeveloped.
Natasha Alfonso, city
planner, said that while of-
ficials want to spur retail and
commercial development
they don' t want to create "a

used to help retain sand, off
the main beach. Former city
commissioner Pam Militello
gave a power point presen-
tation that showed how the
grasses and dunes on the
south beach block ocean
views from the sidewalk.
"Save our View" Militello
asked of the board. She said
that sea oats grow to six-foot
heights and spread uncontrol-
lably.
Planting the vegetation
became an issue when com-
missioners agreed at the last
meeting to seek a $30,000
Coastal Partnership Initiative
Grant to install a dune at hot
spots on the beach south of
the pier.
Faced with public dissent,
Commissioner Joe Miller said
this week he was "absolutely
against it... we have a unique
view... there is nothing like it
north or south of us."
Assistant Director of
Environmental Services Chad
Gresek said the EPA required
a landscaping plan for the
fishing pier before it would
grant permits for a renovation
now underway. "We need a
dune component," he said.
Gresek said there is no
guarantee of the grant money,
but it "would help us do more
with what we' ve got." City
Manager Burgess Hanson
agreed. "Why should we
spend our money?" he asked.
Commissioners agreed
to go for the grant if the
grasses are planted only
where required. "Could we
try for vegetation that can be
contained and won' t travel?"
Commissioner Bill Ganz

asked.

League gets funds for
background checks
Deerfield Beach Deer-
field Beach Little League will
receive a $2,500 financial
assist from the city to pay
for background checks on its
coaches after League offi-
cials complained the process
imposed last year by the city
is a financial burden. Cost of
a nationwide, Level 2 record
search is about $5,000.
Little League opens its sea-
son this Sunday at 3 p.m. This
week, its president contacted
commissioners complain-
ing about the costly process
prompting City Commissioner
Bill Ganz to say league of-
ficials were "ducllleine their
feet. But, he added, since
the city mandated the annual
checkups, it should help pay
for them. Ganz asked that the
city pay half the cost of the
background checks for all the
city' s athletic leagues, a figure
estimated at $15,000 a year,


and his motion was approved.
Public will get more
face time with the
commission
Deerfield Beach Citi-
zens will soon get another
minute to present their
thoughts to the city commis-
sion. The board voted Tues-
day to extend the time limit
for citizen requests to four
minutes and gave the mayor
discretion to give speakers an
additional minute if neces-
sary.
The decision followed a
long discussion on the merits
of the current three-minute
rule and was broached by
Commissioner Ben Preston
who said some people can't
get their thoughts together in
the allowed time. He wanted to
give the public five minutes at
the microphone.
Commissioner Bill Ganz
said three minutes is plenty
of time if speakers would
prepare their remarks before
hand, but agreed that some


people have been cut short by
the three-minute rule, and that
disturbs him. Commissioner
Marty Popelsky, on the other
hand, said three minutes is
more than enough time and
that the chairperson [mayor]
can always let them go on
longer. Extending the time
"gives an advantage to those
who know how to speak,"
Popelsky said.
In the end, Commis-
sioner Joe Miller suggested a
four-minute rule and Preston
agreed but only if the mayor
could be given the authority to
grant five minutes "if neces-
sary."

sailfish to get up and start
moving. The last few weeks
have been extremely slow

A few fish have been
caught way north towards

part it has been really slow

But this front could be
the one that we are looking

PowerPoint presentation on
the project at the meeting.
"The question is do we want
to be part of this?," Town
Manager Connie Hoffmann
said at the Feb. 14 meeting.
"We have no idea what this
will cost the town. We don't
know if the county will get
federal or state funding." The
town contribution would vary
depending on other funding.
Project construction cost
is estimated at roughly $33
million, according to a report
by Myers. Other costs will
add another $12.5 million for
a total cost of $45.5 million.
"It will be disruptive during
the tourism season with truc s
coming in," Hoffmann said.
"It can only occur in the
tourist season because of the
turtles." Sand will be trucked
in, dumped and then moved

by heavy equipment on the
beach."
Commissioner Stuart Dodd
said he has heard complaints
the sand is so fine it forms
clouds in the water and
smothers the reef. "I don't
know if we have the authority
to stop it, but we want
compatible sand that behaves
like proper sea gravel sand,"
he said.
The sand is ground, and
the grinder can be adjusted
for size, Commissioner Mark
Brown noted. "We need to
get the experts in here and
have public participation," he
said. "Condos and businesses
on the beach will be most
affected."
Mayor Roseann Minnet
reiterated, "The town can opt
in or opt out of the project
or say we only want it in the
north or south. It's important
to get all the stakeholders
involved. This will disrupt
the whole town. There will
be multiple seasons they will
be trucking in sand. Everyone


will be impacted by the beach
renourishment project. We
will need cost estimates, and
it would have to be funded for
next year "
Brown said there are some
beneficial elements to the
plan, as well. "Beaches are
the lifeblood of the economy
here, and the beaches are our
only line of defense from
hurricanes and other storms,"
he said.
He isn't optimistic the
federal government will be
forthcoming with funds,
noting the federal government
hasn' t paid its share of the last
phase of beach renourishment
two years ago. "I don't see an
appropriation like this coming
available," he said.
Brown added that while the
LBTS beaches are so much
wider and in so much better
shape than the Galt, "The Galt
Ocean Mile has some condos
practically in the water at high
tide."
"The city of Fort Lauderdale
is in desperate need of beach


renourishment," Alinnet
agreed. "It's up to us to
determine how much we want
to participate and how far we
want to go," she said. "[Beach
renourishment] is necessary
to our neighbors to the south
and north. My concern is with
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea."
Brown offered to be
commission liaison with
federal, state and county
officials to impress on them
the importance of moving
forward on this project.


"I hope the federal
government will step up and
take responsibility for this,'
Brown said. "They will be
responsible for the bulk of the
money. Saying that, I reserve
the right to not necessarily
support a whole lot of work
on Lauderdale-By-The-Sea."
The county must obtain
state and federal permits
before the project could start.
The earliest construction
could start is November 2013.
