Flinn teaches environmental science, psychology and genetics. The scholarship program brings together 12 of the nation’s top public high school juniors and 12 exceptional educators for a week of exploration, dialogue and debate at the Aspen Ideas Festival, June 26 to July 2. In Aspen, Bezos Scholars will connect with visionaries from around the globe – international leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs and creative artists – and engage in lectures, presentations, debates and discussions that span a vast range of critical topics. After a week at the festival, each team plans a Local Ideas Festival that focuses on an issue of relevance in their respective hometowns. Flinn leads the Northeast High InVen Team, which recently received a grant from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to create an emergency water ltration system for disaster relief in tropical areas. Elliott is one of the 14 students on the team, traveling to MIT this month to present her invention.

The news arrived in 1865, two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Ask Librarian Rhonda Walker about it, and she says it was just a well-kept secret. Since 1999, Walker, who heads up the Northwest Branch Library, has helped promulgate this small part of history with the library’s annual Blues & Sweet Potato Pie Festival.Juneteenth celebration, Blues & Sweet Potato Pie festival this monthThe Festival begins at 11 a.m. on June 16, and it’s part of a nationwide celebration of Juneteenth—the unknown date in June that the last slave found freedom. The celebration takes place on the grounds of the Northwest Library, 1580 NW 3 Ave. and Apollo Park. Activities range from the Sweet Potato Pie contest, where the annual search for the best pie recipe commences to late afternoon feasting on barbecued ribs and drinking in the sounds of Joey The Bluesman Gilmore, Gary Wright 99 Jazz & Hot 105, Derrick The DJ and Sister World War II Veteran Tony Tenneriello takes his place of honor during Pompano Beach’s Memorial Day parade on Monday.

Referred to as Code Red Alert, these are emergency noti cation telephone messages meant to get essential information to residents. The message on Friday evening warned residents of a water problem that required them to boil water prior to drinking or cooking with it. There was no mention of E. coli at the time, but the deadly bacteria had been found in one county well causing the Code Red alert. If residents had questions, the message suggested they call 954-831-3061. If they did make the call, here is the message they received: “Sorry, Jerry Baker is not available. Record your message at the tone.” LHP Commissioner Sandy Johnson said she had been working on her house all day and had just nished a late meal when she got a call around 9 p.m. from the LHP Police with the “boil water” alert. “I had been so thirsty that I had just nished two large glasses of water. I gured I was dead,” she said. Mayor Fred Schorr said no one from the city was advised of a “boil water order. Additionally, residents being served by Pompano water received the automated calls from Broward County saying they should boil their water and our Police Dispatch was advised by Broward County that residents on Pompano Water should observe the boil water notice.” The mayor has requested that someone from the county attend the next commission meeting to explain the protocol they follow to advise residents and city administration of emergency situations. Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher heard the news from a re ghter. Randy Brown, utilities director had been on vacation and saw the alert late Friday when he checked his phone messages. Fisher called Public Information Of cer Sandra King wanting to know why Pompano Beach residents were getting Code Red alerts. King said she had never put one out. “Nobody knew anything,” said King. To date, Fisher has never heard from anyone at the county level regarding the mis red alerts. “The point is,” says Fisher, “that there was a major disconnect among the county See WATER on page 21

Patton’s Third Army during World War II. But the thing he remembers most? His now lost picture of Patton famously peeing into the Rhine River in Germany. “I had an actual picture of that. I miss that picture,” he said. “That was a great picture to have.” Tenneriello never met Patton up close but saw the general a few times. “He was a great man. He had his ups and downs but you’ve got to admit, he got the job done.” During his tour of duty across war-torn Europe, Tenneriello considered himself lucky three times over: lucky to come home alive and in one piece, lucky to see “a lot of things in Europe” and lucky to be an American. “That made me more happy to be an American. Freedom is very precious. You don’t appreciate it until it’s gone,” he said.

Email events to siren2415@gmail. com Ellen and her son were among those who came out to show their appreciation for the military service of Tenneriello and others during Pompano Beach’s Memorial Day observances, held at Westview Cemetery and Pompano Beach Cemetery. “We come here every year to experience this. It’s quaint. It’s real. There’s no candy throwing. It’s about the people. It’s about the veterans,” she said. In between both ceremonies, various groups – including American Legion Post 142, Veterans of Foreign Wars, or VWF, Post 8182, Post 8182’s Ladies Auxiliary, the Pompano Beach High School U.S. Army JROTC, Daughters of the American Revolution – participated in the parade along Southeast 23 Avenue from the Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce of ce to Pompano Cemetery. “Pompano surely does it in a rst class manner,” said Mayor Lamar Fisher.

But John Sills, commander of VFW Post 8182, talked about the unknown fates of servicemen and women listed as POW/MIA, or Prisoner of War/Missing In Action, and presented the Post’s POW/MIA table to the crowd, explaining its signi cance. The POW/MIA table is a regular xture at VFW and American Legion posts around the country and signi es the missing compatriot who will never return. “The chair is empty. They are not here. Remember,” said Sills. Coral Springs resident David Harris said Memorial Day is a chance to give thanks to those who have sacri ced more than just a job quality of life; they gave their lives. Larry Sands, who served in South Korea, still remembers the stench of the rice patties in the summer. “[Memorial Day] is a time to remember all of the people who died in action so we can stand here today and do what we’re doing,” said Sands. But as Americans around the country commemorated the sacri ces of men and women past and present, Andy Buglione, veteran of World War II, the Korean War and Florida’s 2011 Legionnaire of the Year, says more needs to be done to honor those who have served. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobless rate for veterans is 8.3 percent. Among those veterans who served on active duty from 2001 to today, the unemployment rate is 12.1 percent. The national unemployment is 8.1 percent. “They need help, mentally and physically. They need jobs,” said Buglione.ParadeContinued from page 4Members of Pompano Beach’s VFW Post 8182 y the colors down the parade route.

Why didn’t someone in a position of authority alert the press and the media that the boil water directive only applied to those Deer eld Beach residents who had water service from Broward County. Instead the clari cation appeared on the city’s web site. Did they really believe that people were going to access the city’s web site over a holiday weekend? As a result of this lack of concern, most residents were not aware that the water supplied by the Deer eld Beach water department was completely safe to drink and did not require boiling. Unfortunately no one clari ed the distinction for the majority of the residents, so most people had an uncomfortable holiday weekend. Jean M.

Andy Buglione, veteran and Boy Scout leader teams up\ with Bob Shelley, former city commissioner and state representative, to make it happen every year. To watch Tony Tenneriello, World War II veteran look over the crowds that lined the street, I could not help but wonder what was going through his mind. On the side of the road, a young boy with a small ag looks up at the 80-plusyear-old man comfortable on the back of a convertible. I hope that Tenneriello was thinking about how he and others went across the sea to take on the enemies that would have destroyed our way of life. And how that task led to this one little boy freely watching the car and the large man who was being honored in this parade. It was a beautiful day for the city.Water kerfuf e has room for lessonsWhen Code Red alerts went out this past weekend to warn most people of a probable E. coli danger in Broward County water, it came close to appearing to be a prank. The calls came at night. The telephone number for more information was a voice mail. And in general, citizens have lost a bit of faith in government’s ability to protect its them. One good thing happened. Hundreds of people suddenly know the entity that provides them with water. And they learned that Lighthouse Point does not have its own water facility: it’s either Pompano Beach, in the southern end of the city, or Broward County for the rest of the city. Cresthaven and Highlands residents are keenly aware that they are not serviced by their own city but by the county facility. County of cials have con rmed that the water, once it passed through the processing plant, at no time was a threat. The state health department has mandated that residents get an immediate warning if contamination is found in the water. By the law, county of cials did the right thing. But it’s clear that a new process must be in place for any future problems. As state of cials prepare their alerts, county of cials must reach all local of cials and all rst responders. Had this been a real threat, there could have been large numbers of people harmed or killed by E. coli: especially the very young and the very old. Telephones should be manned by dozens of people with correct information about the incident, the symptoms of E. coli and what to do to remain safe. Local mayors can make this happen. It was E. coli this time, but the emergency never came to fruition. Next time, what will it be?

The Pelican 7 Friday, June 1, 2012 By Michael d’OliveiraPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach None of the Pompano Beach High School students who recently won the inaugural Florida Student Astronaut Challenge may ever go into space. But their combined efforts have come up with an idea that could help those who do. During their ultimately successful efforts getting ready for the Florida Student Astronaut Challenge in Tallahassee on May 19, the team, all seniors in the same science class taught by Ralph Marchand, came up with an idea that could reduce the problem of muscle atrophy and bone loss in astronauts during extended missions in space. Chris Portela, mission Pompano High students win rst ever Astronaut Challenge commander during the competition, said the team envisioned space suits with tiny built-in springs that would provide resistance to muscles and bones as the astronauts wearing them perform tasks. “It’s almost like being on Earth,” said Portela about the suit design, which has since been submitted to NASA. Portela, who plans to study electrical engineering or computer science at Florida Atlantic University, said the team hopes their idea can help reduce the problem of bone loss and the amount of time astronauts have to spend on special exercise equipment. According to NASA’s website, bone loss and muscle atrophy occur more rapidly in space than on Earth. See ASTRONAUT on page 15Nicholas Lucas, left, Jason Carvalho, center, and Jason Carvalho..

Call The Pelican to nd out how you can tell your story here because business matters. 954-783-8700. Briefs By Bill JohnsonSTAFF WRITERLauderdale-By-The-Sea A deadly plane crash in 1996 launched a local inventor on a new mission – to make ying safer. Richard Hackmeister, who lives in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, was shocked when he learned that ice buildup on the plane’s wings contributed to the Simmons Airline crash in Roselawn, Indiana. The crash killed 68 people, and that the plane had no ice detector. “At the time I was looking for something to manufacture and thought I could invent an ice-detector that’s inexpensive,” Hackmeister says. Inventing something like this was not a new idea for him. For years he has tried to eliminate moving parts from various equipment, making them simpler, more ef cient, less costly to build and less costly to maintain. He has six patents to show for his engineering experience in optics, electronics and engineering. His ice-detector for airplanes, which is based on an optical system that detects ice, was tested in a NASA air tunnel and is now available to aircraft for about one fth the cost of previous systems, Hackmeister aays. The National Transportation Board, which investigates airplane crashes, has been concerned about ice on airplanes for years and has urged regulations to reduce the danger. Last August, the Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, announced Local inventor’s experiments designed to make ying safer and refrigeration cheaper Richard Hackmeister, VP and GM, New Avionicsnew requirements for commercial planes less than 60,000 pounds. They will have to install ice detectors or begin new procedures to help pilots detect in ight ice buildup on the wings. According to a FAA news release, larger commercial aircraft already have ice detection equipment. Most planes operated by regional airlines will have to comply with the new regulations. Hackmeister’s ice detection invention has many other uses as well. For example, it can be used effectively on windmills and radio towers and to detect ice buildup on roads and bridges. He points out there are tens of thousands of windmills around the world. In cold climates ice buildup can disable a wind turbine. Another of his inventions stems from a personal experience: a ooded kitchen oor. When he came home one day and found a puddle near the refrigerator where ice had melted and frozen foods had thawed, his curiosity kicked in, and he learned about the defrosting mechanisms in refrigeration units. Sitting in the Fort Lauderdale of ce of his business, New Avionics, Hackmeister explains what he learned. Holding up an electric motor taken from a refrigerator, he points out its moving parts and explains that every eight hours it turns on a heater for 30 minutes to melt ice building up – whether there’s ice or not. He began work to develop a simpler system with no moving parts and calls it the Ice Meister. It is an optical system using invisible light to monitor ice that’s beginning to form. It turns on the heater only when necessary. Hackmeister says the Ice Meister costs less to manufacture than existing refrigerator defrosters because it has no moving parts. He says it is more reliable and saves energy. He came home and found a puddle near the refrigerator where ice had melted and frozen foods had thawed.

The Pelican 9 Friday, June 1, 2012 This is an obvious bene t to supermarkets, restaurants, school cafeterias and other businesses that use large refrigeration units. Hackmeister is betting that these businesses will want a more ef cient system that saves energy. New Avionics has contracts with a national distributor and U.S. companies to manufacture the Ice*Meister, and it has gone into production. Asked to contemplate the future, Hackmeister points out that in addition to businesses with large refrigeration units, millions of new household refrigerators will be made in the next ve years or so, and he envisions the Ice Meister defrosting many of those refrigerators more ef ciently than the old technology provides. He envisions robots busy in Florida plants turning out who-knows-how-many of these things. If you ask him to sum up what he does, he’s likely to say, “We make the smallest, lightest, most sensitive ice detectors in the world.” And he’s counting on the rest of the world to want them.

That’s why she steps away from her busy private practice to participate in health fairs, pro-bono, in hopes of educating and identifying skin problems that have not been diagnosed. She says, “Many of the people who come to health fairs are uninsured, poorly insured or have no resources available. This past May 17, we did a free skin cancer screening at North Broward Medical Cancer Center from 5 to 7 p.m. Donna Ste nsky, senior research nurse coordinator wrote to Hecker saying, “Without the help of dedicated physicians, such as you, we would not to able to offer preventive services like these to the public.

The Pelican 11 Friday, June 1, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFF Oakland Park – Oakland Park Main Street is an all-volunteer, non-pro t organization dedicated to the economic vitality, quality of life and community pride for downtown Oakland Park “We ascribe to a four point approach: Design, organization, promotion and economic restructuring,” Siegi Constantine, executive director, said at the group’s annual meeting Wednesday at Primavera restaurant. They have added two more committees: marketing and public art. Oakland Park Main Street is currently working under contract with Redevelopment Management Associates or RMA. “The city had the good sense to hire them [RMA] to review the CRA, or Community Redevelopment Agency, and make recommendations as to how to restart the city’s redevelopment efforts,” Constantine said. “They have found a new vision in the culinary arts for our city and are building support from the business community and the residents.” As Mayor Anne Sallee noted in welcoming luncheon guests, “In the past, Oakland Park hadn’t gured out what it wanted to be. Now we’re moving to a lively downtown and a culinary destination. We need to focus on where we’re going and focus on the vision.” Sallee thanked board members for the time and effort they put in to drive the Main Street organization. The purpose of Main Street, Constantine said, is to support the city’s initiatives and work with the city and RMA and with the business and residential community members to promote Oakland Park as a progressive city. Main Street also seeks to attract the right business tenants and assist them with nding rental space, permitting and grand openings. Their focus is speci cally on the downtown area. The group works with property owners to stage special events, such as an Antique Classic Car Show, Cinema under the Stars and their signature event, Oktoberfest, which draws about 10,000 visitors over two days. Recently, they’ve added food truck events, branded as Gourmet on Wheels, where participants taste various foods and enjoy live music and arts and crafts. One is scheduled Saturday, June 2, on Northeast 12 Avenue in front of Big Dog Station. Constantine noted that several businesses have opened in the downtown in the past year, including the Goodwill Industries Boutique Store on Oakland Park Boulevard, FastPrintz, Eva’s Ice Cream Parlor, Pet Therapy, Recovery Real Estate and The Planted Aquarium Store, all on Northeast 12 Avenue and the Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club at Primavera Plaza off East Oakland Park Boulevard.

By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach Winnie Frazer would be proud that the Deer eld Beach Kiwanis Club has named its annual golf tournament in her honor. The outspoken Frazer loved this city said her friend and past club president Jack Disher. “Even though she came from New York, she was de nitely a Deer eld Beach ‘native,’” Disher said remembering Frazer who died two years ago. She was also a staunch Republican and longtime Kiwanian. Some her best moments were in political arguments with Dave Gravelle, another local Kiwanis Club member. “They would have hilarious ghts over local, state and national politics,” Disher said this week. But at the end of the day, Frazer would always say to Gravelle, “Just remember, Dave, you are one of my best friends.” “She always let people know where she stood… she was a tough one,” Disher said, “But she would be so honored that people want to recognize Kiwanis golf tournament honors beloved member Winnie Frazerher.” This year’s Winnie Frazer Memorial Golf Tournament will be held Sat. June 9, 9 a.m. at the Deer eld Country Club. Last year’s bene ciaries are Horses and the Handicapped, the Police Benevolent League, Disabled American Veterans and Kiwanis scholarships. Special features of the day – and a chance to win prizesinclude the golf ball drop at 1:15 p.m. putting, longest drive and closest to the pin contests. There will be chances to win a twoyear lease on a 2012 Subaru Legacy. Tournament co-chairs Avis Swenson and Henry Gould have been accumulating auction items that include a timeshare at the Smokey Mountain Resort in Gatlinburg, TN., Panther tickets, autographed sport memorabilia, a stay at the Wyndham, a ride-along with the BSO and many, many golf packages.

The change would be the third in eight years. Vincent said the commission has rushed the proposal for discussion in order to get in on the ballot this November. “Why force a referendum and why so quickly?” Commissioner Mark Brown said he also voted at the previous meeting to have the ordinance drafted. But he had no problem with it going back to the Charter Review Board for a thorough look and possibly putting it on the ballot in 2013. Brown said he had reservations about making the new rules retroactive to apply to the current mayor’s term. “I have to go with my gut feeling. Don’t take it personally. It’s not directed at you,” Brown said to Mayor Roseann Minnet. He said the proposal was fast-tracked because of a June deadline from Broward County to get any proposed amendment on the ballot. “This is calling into question the CRB and this commission, and it looks like it’s being rushed through to bene t Mayor Minnet,” Brown said. “And she has nothing to do with that. I can’t support this the way it’s turning out.” Vice Mayor Scot Sasser said he was in complete disagreement with his two colleagues. “This is just being put on the ballot. I won’t tell you the way I would vote. We were putting this in your hands. I’m not waf ing on it. It’s the democratic process to let you make the decision,” he said, referring to voters. Sasser moved to approve the ordinance calling for the amendment, but he got no second. In explaining his no vote later, Vincent said he wanted the commission to urge the Charter Review Board to follow procedures of earlier boards and conduct two meetings with public input and a third meeting of the board before sending any proposed changes to the charter to the town commission. “There wasn’t enough public input. This was too fast,” he said.MayorContinued from page 1 “There has been no public outcry to increase the mayor’s term to four years.” Vincent SightingsContinued from 13 See SIGHTINGS on page 186-9 – Free car seat safety check event from 9 a.m. to noon.

The Pelican 15 Friday, June 1, 2012 Although the exact cause is unknown, long periods in microgravity contribute to the loss of calcium which is essential to the body’s process of replenishing bone which is constantly broken down and rebuilt. On Earth in normal gravity, muscles are being constantly used by the body to move and hold up posture. Without gravity muscles get used far less and begin to atrophy. To combat these losses, astronauts spend more than two hours each day exercising on special equipment. But to win the Florida Student Astronaut Challenge, the team had to solve a few other problems rst. On May 19, Pompano High’s team beat 15 other high schools in the Astronaut Challenge, organized by the Florida Department of Education. Teams competed to see who could best master the workings of the pre ight operation, launch, orbit and landing in the Space Shuttle Enterprise ight simulator. Joe Caraccio, one of the team’s mission controllers who plans to study mechanical engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, said one of the biggest challenges was guring out which systems were needed and during the simulated landing phase and in which succession they should be powered on. If the team got the order wrong or powered up too many systems they wouldn’t be able to land the shuttle. “We thought we did terrible . they actually applauded us for that,” said Caraccio. Although competition and a victory for Pompano Beach High School was the immediate outcome, the ultimate goal of the Astronaut Challenge is to stoke interest in STEM, or science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. “It was conceived for that very purpose,” said Marchand. “It’s not [just] something we learn in books. It’s something that’s applied [to the real world].” But for some of Marchand’s students, including Caraccio and Portela, an interest in STEM was something that was stoked a long time ago. “I’ve always wondered why things work,” said Nicholas Lucas, the team’s research specialist who plans to study electrical engineering at either the University of Central Florida or Caltech in California. “I’d have more fun being the one who planned the trip than going into space.” AstronautContinued from page 7The team after their victory.

From new menu items to upgraded carpets and lighting, the ever evolving Galuppi’s remains an iconic hot-spot frequented by golfers and non-golfers alike. “I love coming here for a drink and to enjoy the $9.95 NY strip steak on Tuesdays,” says area resident Maureen Pickford, a long-time patron. In fact, meat lovers will appreciate many house specialties such as the choice top sirloin and the tenderloin tips. “Personally, I love our ribeye,” says Grant of the eyecatching 12 oz marinated slab of tender prime rib. Of course, the famous slow roasted, dry rubbed and BBQ slathered baby back ribs is also a highly recommended option – especially on Monday nights when it is offered at only $9.95 for the full rack.

18 The Pelican Friday, June 1, 2012 re-development based on the vision of creating a culinary arts institute. “We have been talking to a lot of people and want to help push the ball up hill as fast as we can,” she said. Guest speaker Frank Schnidman, director, Center for Urban Redevelopment Education at Florida Atlantic University, spoke on “Assembling Land by Assembling People.” He questioned why there is a rush to buy out property owners in areas targeted for redevelopment. Instead, he suggested looking at a development area and looking at owners and where they are in their life cycle. “What do they want? What are their goals for the property? Think about what you could do if you didn’t have to pay the upfront cost to take them out. Why can’t they stay in and invest in the development?” Regarding the proposed culinary destination, Schnidman said, “You have a bunch of little buildings that are supposed to go away. What if rather than buy them and take them off the tax rolls you found someone to build a culinary arts center like the Design Center of the Americas. Condo ownership could be offered in the new building in exchange for property. “Ask the property owners to set their goals and objectives for how they want the culinary district to happen,” he suggested. “For a culinary district you need sparkling buildings, a catalytic project. You won’t get that from individual investment. Look at the Design Center. You need a magnet like that.” Tim Lonergan, a resident running for city commission next year, said he’s optimistic about the culinary arts district coming to Oakland Park. He said the lack of progress in development on Main Street in the 12 years he has lived in the city has been a disappointment, and he’s happy to see progress being made. Resident Jack Doren said Schnidman’s was “an interesting approach to involving the interests of landlords. The challenge would be to convince land owners it would be in their best interests to work collaboratively.” OaklandContinued from page 11SightingsContinued from page 16 6-12 – Oakland Park/ Wilton Manor s Council Chamber luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at Gallery One Resort Hotel, 2670 E.

We go to these events with goody bags lled with samples and brochures which give the visitors education and a chance to sample a variety of products without investing in them. Asked if her practice bene ts from her participation in health fairs, Hecker replies, “We certainly recommend follow ups for those in need. Many will go to hospital clinics. We try to help those who come to us with discounts so that they can afford the needed treatment.” Both Dr. Melanie and her husband, David, have impeccable education, experience and credentials. They have published numerous articles on dermatologic therapies and cosmetic treatments and made appearances on many radio and television shows. They are both active members of the American Academy of Dermatology and the Dermatology Foundation. Cosmetic Dermatology is a vital part of their practice. Both are skilled in current laser treatments, all approved injectable llers, chemical peels and products that enhance skin rejuvenation. Hecker says, “We don’t judge. We accommodate with our best medical and cosmetic products and treatments. We are a full service medical group. Anti-aging treatments can be as simple as product use or product changes. Not all products have to be expensive. We have many ways to deal with cosmetic concerns.” With a laugh, she adds, “Just about everything available cosmetically has been tried out on me and that includes products and treatments. We customize the treatment to the individual.” Her best free advice is use a good, high grade SP30 or higher sunscreen to protect skin from cancer and aging. Apply sunscreen every 90 to 120 minutes if outside. This husband and wife team up in the eld of dermatology, but also in parenting their three daughters and being a community involved family. “Giving back is part of our lifestyle, “ Melanie says. “Another one of my passions is Tara which means trap and release. I trap feral cats, take them to the animal aid mobile unit where they are completely vaccinated and sterilized. I pick up the bill. Once they are recovered they are released or placed. I love pets and I love this charity. I have one inside cat and two outside cats, one dog and 10 birds.” She even has a reconstituted doll house behind their free standing of ce building where feral cats can drink, eat and leave this covered doorless shelter.

This was a time when Theodore Roosevelt was president, gas was 6 cents a gallon, and Oklahoma became the 46th state. She was a first generation German American. Elsa had many chores as a young child. Later she would be of great help to her parents as they ran and grew their bakery supplies business. Elsa was married in 1926 and had a wonderful marriage and partnership with her husband Bill. They grew the family roofing business that Bill had developed prior to their marriage. From the start, Bill’s piano playing and Elsa’s love of singing were an important aspect of their social life. Their special blend of work and enjoyment of loved ones was always part of their lifestyle. Elsa felt the Westchester Country Club was an excellent place for family to meet and enjoy themselves together. Eventually Elsa and Bill lived on the grounds of the club area in Rye, NY. She kept a beautiful home and entertained frequently. Bill had some bronchial issues in the winters so seasonal Florida trips became necessary for his health in the 1930’s. Friends urged Elsa to stay home in Mount Vernon, NY. These friends told her that there would be no milk Elsa Hoffmann never missed a beat in her 104 years of friends, family and lifeObituariesin the wilds of Florida for her baby. Elsa insisted on spending the cold months in Florida for Bill’s health. Eventually they decided to buy a motel of their own, Jasmine Villa, in Pompano Beach, to run seasonally. They owned and operated it for about 20 years starting in the 1950’s. Elsa planned many excursions from “froggigging” to horse races and Key West trips. Guests became friends for life. Elsa and Bill raised four wonderfully beautiful and diverse children, two boys and two girls, Bud, Joan, Gail, and Pamela. Elsa sold the house in Rye after Bill passed and retired in Hillsboro Beach All her years were filled with activities. She played cards (bridge, gin and hand and foot) with several groups of dear friends, continued to travel, “flipped” real estate condos into her 90’s, attended and planned parties, and was involved with charitable organizations for social interaction as well as volunteer work (NE Focal Point, Hillsboro Women’s League, QUOTA to name a few). She treasured her beloved First Presbyterian Church, too. Elsa also volunteered for local women’s hospital auxiliaries to add her creative touch to fundraising events when she lived in New York. Up until last year she had made visits to cheer John Knox Village residents who all absolutely adored her. Within her centenarian years she made her modeling debut at a First Presbyterian Church luncheon. Elsa’s greatest joy was in finding even the smallest things or gestures to make others happy. Her goal was to do that every day and she did. She also liked to regularly set and accomplish goals. If she did not know what to do she relied on her faith and would make some decision to move forward rather than procrastinate. Elsa with her long, vital and happy life did not escape the attention of the media. She was noticed by US News and World Report, The Christian Science Monitor, Barbara Walters, a story on NBC News (when she shared she was ready to give up driving which inspired others to make the decision when it was right for them too), loving, inspiring local press articles from The Pelican, The Sun Sentinel, The Observer, Boomer Times, Lighthouse Point Magazine, and more. So many people have appreciated our Elsa. So much interest was generated, in fact, that granddaughter, Sharon Elsa Textor-Black, wrote a book about Elsa’s See HOFFMANN on page 21

The Pelican 21 Friday, June 1, 2012 and the cities. Everyone was in a panic.” The situation brought to light the dispersion of water in different in cities. The Pompano Beach water plant serves most of the city residents and some Lighthouse Point residents in the southern part of the city. But annexed areas, Leaisureville, Highlands and Cresthaven remained with Broward County water after they became part of the city. The majority of Deer eld Beach is served by city water while some parts are under county water. Johnson pointed out that many residents in condominiums have no idea where they get their water since the bill is paid by the condominium board. Brown said that at no time were customers of Pompano Beach water in danger. And at no point were they under a boil water alert. On Tuesday, representatives of the Broward County Water and Wastewater departments will be on hand in Pompano Beach to answer questions about the failure of communications. Tony Karda, county water representative, explained how the alerts went out. The contamination was found in a Pompano well, and by state mandate, the alert was posted on E -mail and those customers whose phone numbers are listed with the county received telephone alerts. “Our rst duty is to protect the customers.” Karda further explained that the contaminated sample was found prior to that water being sent to the decontamination and distribution center. “The [contaminated] water was never in the distribution pipes,” he said. County water users may see information on their next water bill to indicate how they can sign up for water alerts.

24 The Pelican Friday, June 1, 2012 Pompano Beach Fire Rescue here responded to an apartment fire at 9:40 a.m. Wednesday morning at 2275 NE 9 St. A neighbor reported smoke coming from the apartment. No one was home at the time of the fire. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue evacuated the small apartment complex, extinguished the blaze and discovered the family pet parakeet “Limey” dead in the living room. The apartment is a total loss. The Red Cross is assisting the mother and her two children, ages 13 and 6, with temporary housing. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue is investigating the cause of the fire. Family safe, but pet parakeet succumbs to apartment re course, the famous slow roasted, dry rubbed and BBQ slathered baby back ribs is also a highly recommended option – especially on Monday nights when it is offered at only $9.95 for the full rack. Delectable chicken can be enjoyed with mango salsa, blackened, Marsala and Milanese to name but a few popular preparations. On the seafood front, “the Black & Blue shrimp is excellent and our Wasabi Salmon is de nitely one of our biggest sellers,” says Grant. The menu also features snapper Francaise, grilled Mahi and sh & chips. “My favorite is the sesame seared tuna,” adds bartender Dee Caldwell. Fun appetizers to share include the buffalo chicken wings, quesadillas, portabella mushroom stack, nachos and Teriyaki chicken skewers. Angus beef burgers, Philly cheese subs, Albacore tuna melt and Caribbean Bronzed Mahi sandwiches can be enjoyed anytime until closing. For the health conscious, sample the Gorgonzola with baby greens, grape tomatoes, Kalamata olives and croutons with balsamic vinaigrette. Orthe Santa Fe Chicken salad, replete with crunchy Romaine, black bean & corn salsa and tortilla strips tossed in a tangy chipotle ranch dressing. There is plenty to enjoy for the early risers as well. Served from 7 to 11 a.m. daily, Galuppi’s breakfast options are inexpensive and plentiful. Eggs any style with home fries, ham, bacon or sausage are a great way to start the day. Other favorites include the large uffy Belgian waf es, French toast, pancakes, egg wraps, omelettes and country fried steak. For a more lavish morning meal, the $14.95 Sunday brunch features a carving station with prime rib, roasted turkey or honey baked ham.

The Pelican 25 Friday, June 1, 2012 BROWARD SHERIFF OFFICEDeerfield Beach Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are looking for two brazen burglars who parked a bright red vehicle, possibly a Mercedes, in the driveway of a home they burglarized. The incident happened around noon on April 13 in the 1400 block of Southeast 8 St. A witness saw the two burglars park the car, which had a possible partial tag beginning with the numbers “245,” in the driveway. The duo went into the back of the house and were later seen jumping a fence into a neighbor’s yard. When BSO deputies arrived, they discovered that both residences had been entered by force. The burglars apparently smashed a rear window and a sliding-glass door and targeted the homes’ master bedrooms, taking cash and jewelry. Anyone with information about the red car or the burglars can contact BSO Det. Ian Kuechler at 954-422-5829 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at 954-493-8477 or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.

The victim was on a private boat with five other adults. They are members of the Gold Coast SCUBA Divers. The group was exploring the Guy Harvey wreck when one of the divers spotted Robyn Spalter unresponsive near the top deck of the wreck. BSO investigators said Spalter was found approximately 116 feet below the surface. The crew radioed the U.S. Coast Guard for help at about 8:20 a.m. BSO’s marine unit escorted the private boat to the Hillsboro Inlet. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue was waiting at the Northeast 14 Street boat ramp to transport Spalter to Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach where she died shortly before 9 a.m. BSO homicide detectives are investigating the diverelated death; however, foul play is not suspected.

RJ Boyle, owner of RJ Boyle Studios in Lighthouse Point, says as the weather changes and the reading on the barometer starts to change, anglers could have anywhere from between 15 to 30 minutes of great fishing as the fish get riled up – if you’re in the right spot and doing everything else right. “If you time it right you can have a pretty good day,” said Boyle. But theses special conditions won’t last forever. “It will shut down right when the weather stabilizes,” said Boyle. And Boyle advises if any anglers do find themselves caught in a storm, put any antennas and rods down and turn off any electronics. Boaters should also invest in a good radar but if that’s too pricey a radio should be the backup plan. This weekend looks like more wind and rain so anglers who get caught in a storm might have a chance to make it worth the less-than-ideal boating conditions. And lately, says Boyle, anglers have been catching a lot. “One catch was a 450-Storms bring bad conditions and good shingpound swordfish,” said Boyle. Those looking for something to catch soon should have a pretty good selection to choose from. Kings, sailfish, dolphin, kingfish and more have been biting lines.Tell The Pelican about your fish story! 954-783-8700!

On Monday, June 4 at 12 p.m., the Pompano Beach leg of the Brotherhood Ride will occur as the cyclists are escorted from Station #24, 2001 NE 10 St., to Station #61 by units from the fire department. Mysiuk said it was an honor to be the one chosen to represent the department. “I’ll be giving it my all for 550 miles. It’s going to be a tough ride but it’s a tough thing to lose someone like that. Everybody still can’t believe it happened to him.” The Brotherhood Ride is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization started in 2007 by Firefighter Jeff Morse, his wife, Candy, and a group of his fellow North Naples Firefighters after nine firefighters in Charleston, South Carolina. The “Charleston 9” died in June 2007 as a result of a furniture store fire. “Our main mission is to let the families know their loved one won’t be forgotten, whether it be a year after [they die] or in the near future. The second is financial support,” said Candy Morse, who estimates Brotherhood Ride has raised over $118,000 since it was started. So far, according to the Brotherhood Ride website, Mysiuk has raised $681 for this year’s ride.

Referred to as Code Red Alert, these are emergency noti cation telephone messages meant to get essential information to residents. The message on Friday evening warned residents of a water problem that required them to boil water prior to drinking or cooking with it. There was no mention of E. coli at the time, but the deadly bacteria had been found in one county well causing the Code Red alert. If residents had questions, the message suggested they call 954-831-3061. If they did make the call, here is the message they received: Sorry, Jerry Baker is not available. Record your message at the tone. LHP Commissioner Sandy Johnson said she had been working on her house all day and had just nished a late meal when she got a call around 9 p.m. from the LHP Police with the boil water alert. I had been so thirsty that I had just nished two large glasses of water. I gured I was dead, she said. Mayor Fred Schorr said no one from the city was advised of a boil water order. Additionally, residents being served by Pompano water received the automated calls from Broward County saying they should boil their water and our Police Dispatch was advised by Broward County that residents on Pompano Water should observe the boil water notice. The mayor has requested that someone from the county attend the next commission meeting to explain the protocol they follow to advise residents and city administration of emergency situations. Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher heard the news from a re ghter. Randy Brown, utilities director had been on vacation and saw the alert late Friday when he checked his phone messages. Fisher called Public Information Of cer Sandra King wanting to know why Pompano Beach residents were getting Code Red alerts. King said she had never put one out. Nobody knew anything, said King. To date, Fisher has never heard from anyone at the county level regarding the mis red alerts. The point is, says Fisher, that there was a major disconnect among the county See WATER on page 21

Pattons Third Army during World War II. But the thing he remembers most? His now lost picture of Patton famously peeing into the Rhine River in Germany. I had an actual picture of that. I miss that picture, he said. That was a great picture to have. Tenneriello never met Patton up close but saw the general a few times. He was a great man. He had his ups and downs but youve got to admit, he got the job done. During his tour of duty across war-torn Europe, Tenneriello considered himself lucky three times over: lucky to come home alive and in one piece, lucky to see a lot of things in Europe and lucky to be an American. That made me more happy to be an American. Freedom is very precious. You dont appreciate it until its gone, he said.

The POW/MIA table is a regular xture at VFW and American Legion posts around the country and signi es the missing compatriot who will never return. The chair is empty. They are not here. Remember, said Sills. Coral Springs resident David Harris said Memorial Day is a chance to give thanks to those who have sacri ced more than just a job quality of life; they gave their lives. Larry Sands, who served in South Korea, still remembers the stench of the rice patties in the summer. [Memorial Day] is a time to remember all of the people who died in action so we can stand here today and do what were doing, said Sands. But as Americans around the country commemorated the sacri ces of men and women past and present, Andy Buglione, veteran of World War II, the Korean War and Floridas 2011 Legionnaire of the Year, says more needs to be done to honor those who have served. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobless rate for veterans is 8.3 percent. Among those veterans who served on active duty from 2001 to today, the unemployment rate is 12.1 percent. The national unemployment is 8.1 percent. They need help, mentally and physically.

Why didnt someone in a position of authority alert the press and the media that the boil water directive only applied to those Deer eld Beach residents who had water service from Broward County. Instead the clari cation appeared on the citys web site. Did they really believe that people were going to access the citys web site over a holiday weekend? As a result of this lack of concern, most residents were not aware that the water supplied by the Deer eld Beach water department was completely safe to drink and did not require boiling. Unfortunately no one clari ed the distinction for the majority of the residents, so most people had an uncomfortable holiday weekend. Jean M.

Andy Buglione, veteran and Boy Scout leader teams up\ with Bob Shelley, former city commissioner and state representative, to make it happen every year. To watch Tony Tenneriello, World War II veteran look over the crowds that lined the street, I could not help but wonder what was going through his mind. On the side of the road, a young boy with a small ag looks up at the 80-plusyear-old man comfortable on the back of a convertible. I hope that Tenneriello was thinking about how he and others went across the sea to take on the enemies that would have destroyed our way of life. And how that task led to this one little boy freely watching the car and the large man who was being honored in this parade. It was a beautiful day for the city.Water kerfuf e has room for lessonsWhen Code Red alerts went out this past weekend to warn most people of a probable E. coli danger in Broward County water, it came close to appearing to be a prank. The calls came at night. The telephone number for more information was a voice mail. And in general, citizens have lost a bit of faith in governments ability to protect its them. One good thing happened. Hundreds of people suddenly know the entity that provides them with water. And they learned that Lighthouse Point does not have its own water facility: its either Pompano Beach, in the southern end of the city, or Broward County for the rest of the city. Cresthaven and Highlands residents are keenly aware that they are not serviced by their own city but by the county facility. County of cials have con rmed that the water, once it passed through the processing plant, at no time was a threat. The state health department has mandated that residents get an immediate warning if contamination is found in the water. By the law, county of cials did the right thing. But its clear that a new process must be in place for any future problems. As state of cials prepare their alerts, county of cials must reach all local of cials and all rst responders. Had this been a real threat, there could have been large numbers of people harmed or killed by E. coli: especially the very young and the very old. Telephones should be manned by dozens of people with correct information about the incident, the symptoms of E. coli and what to do to remain safe. Local mayors can make this happen. It was E. coli this time, but the emergency never came to fruition. Next time, what will it be?

The Pelican 7 Friday, June 1, 2012 By Michael dOliveiraPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach None of the Pompano Beach High School students who recently won the inaugural Florida Student Astronaut Challenge may ever go into space. But their combined efforts have come up with an idea that could help those who do. During their ultimately successful efforts getting ready for the Florida Student Astronaut Challenge in Tallahassee on May 19, the team, all seniors in the same science class taught by Ralph Marchand, came up with an idea that could reduce the problem of muscle atrophy and bone loss in astronauts during extended missions in space. Chris Portela, mission Pompano High students win rst ever Astronaut Challenge commander during the competition, said the team envisioned space suits with tiny built-in springs that would provide resistance to muscles and bones as the astronauts wearing them perform tasks. Its almost like being on Earth, said Portela about the suit design, which has since been submitted to NASA. Portela, who plans to study electrical engineering or computer science at Florida Atlantic University, said the team hopes their idea can help reduce the problem of bone loss and the amount of time astronauts have to spend on special exercise equipment. According to NASAs website, bone loss and muscle atrophy occur more rapidly in space than on Earth. See ASTRONAUT on page 15Nicholas Lucas, left, Jason Carvalho, center, and Jason Carvalho..

Call The Pelican to nd out how you can tell your story here because business matters. 954-783-8700. Briefs By Bill JohnsonSTAFF WRITERLauderdale-By-The-Sea A deadly plane crash in 1996 launched a local inventor on a new mission to make ying safer. Richard Hackmeister, who lives in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, was shocked when he learned that ice buildup on the planes wings contributed to the Simmons Airline crash in Roselawn, Indiana. The crash killed 68 people, and that the plane had no ice detector. At the time I was looking for something to manufacture and thought I could invent an ice-detector thats inexpensive, Hackmeister says. Inventing something like this was not a new idea for him. For years he has tried to eliminate moving parts from various equipment, making them simpler, more ef cient, less costly to build and less costly to maintain. He has six patents to show for his engineering experience in optics, electronics and engineering. His ice-detector for airplanes, which is based on an optical system that detects ice, was tested in a NASA air tunnel and is now available to aircraft for about onefth the cost of previous systems, Hackmeister aays. The National Transportation Board, which investigates airplane crashes, has been concerned about ice on airplanes for years and has urged regulations to reduce the danger. Last August, the Federal Aviation Administration, or FAA, announced Local inventors experiments designed to make ying safer and refrigeration cheaper Richard Hackmeister, VP and GM, New Avionicsnew requirements for commercial planes less than 60,000 pounds. They will have to install ice detectors or begin new procedures to help pilots detect inight ice buildup on the wings. According to a FAA news release, larger commercial aircraft already have ice detection equipment. Most planes operated by regional airlines will have to comply with the new regulations. Hackmeisters ice detection invention has many other uses as well. For example, it can be used effectively on windmills and radio towers and to detect ice buildup on roads and bridges. He points out there are tens of thousands of windmills around the world. In cold climates ice buildup can disable a wind turbine. Another of his inventions stems from a personal experience: a ooded kitchen oor. When he came home one day and found a puddle near the refrigerator where ice had melted and frozen foods had thawed, his curiosity kicked in, and he learned about the defrosting mechanisms in refrigeration units. Sitting in the Fort Lauderdale of ce of his business, New Avionics, Hackmeister explains what he learned. Holding up an electric motor taken from a refrigerator, he points out its moving parts and explains that every eight hours it turns on a heater for 30 minutes to melt ice building up whether theres ice or not. He began work to develop a simpler system with no moving parts and calls it the Ice Meister. It is an optical system using invisible light to monitor ice thats beginning to form. It turns on the heater only when necessary. Hackmeister says the Ice Meister costs less to manufacture than existing refrigerator defrosters because it has no moving parts. He says it is more reliable and saves energy. He came home and found a puddle near the refrigerator where ice had melted and frozen foods had thawed.

The Pelican 9 Friday, June 1, 2012 This is an obvious bene t to supermarkets, restaurants, school cafeterias and other businesses that use large refrigeration units. Hackmeister is betting that these businesses will want a more ef cient system that saves energy. New Avionics has contracts with a national distributor and U.S. companies to manufacture the Ice*Meister, and it has gone into production. Asked to contemplate the future, Hackmeister points out that in addition to businesses with large refrigeration units, millions of new household refrigerators will be made in the next ve years or so, and he envisions the Ice Meister defrosting many of those refrigerators more ef ciently than the old technology provides. He envisions robots busy in Florida plants turning out who-knows-how-many of these things. If you ask him to sum up what he does, hes likely to say, We make the smallest, lightest, most sensitive ice detectors in the world. And hes counting on the rest of the world to want them.

NeubergerPELICANSTAFFDr. Melanie Hecker has many passions, but a top priority is to eliminate skin cancer deaths through diagnosis and treatment. Thats why she steps away from her busy private practice to participate in health fairs, pro-bono, in hopes of educating and identifying skin problems that have not been diagnosed. She says, Many of the people who come to health fairs are uninsured, poorly insured or have no resources available. This past May 17, we did a free skin cancer screening at North Broward Medical Cancer Center from 5 to 7 p.m. Donna Ste nsky, senior research nurse coordinator wrote to Hecker saying, Without the help of dedicated physicians, such as you, we would not to able to offer preventive services like these to the public. At our last screening, 47 individuals were screened. Follow up care was recommended for 29 participants. On May 22, she and several of her team participated in the Holy Cross Hospital Associate Health Fair which ran from early morning to 4 p.m. Called Pathway to Wellness 2012, Hecker estimates, We met over 600 employees last year, answering questions, checking suspicious skin To help prevent skin cancer Dr. Melanie Hecker brings her dermatology expertise to health fairs, pro-bono Dr. Melanie Hecker shown here with husband, Dr. David Hecker and their three daughters.Missing are1 dog, 1 cat and 10 birdsall beloved by the family and Melanie who spends a lot of her free time on TARA, a feral cat trap and release activity.

The Pelican 11 Friday, June 1, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFF Oakland Park Oakland Park Main Street is an all-volunteer, non-pro t organization dedicated to the economic vitality, quality of life and community pride for downtown Oakland Park We ascribe to a four point approach: Design, organization, promotion and economic restructuring, Siegi Constantine, executive director, said at the groups annual meeting Wednesday at Primavera restaurant. They have added two more committees: marketing and public art. Oakland Park Main Street is currently working under contract with Redevelopment Management Associates or RMA. The city had the good sense to hire them [RMA] to review the CRA, or Community Redevelopment Agency, and make recommendations as to how to restart the citys redevelopment efforts, Constantine said. They have found a new vision in the culinary arts for our city and are building support from the business community and the residents. As Mayor Anne Sallee noted in welcoming luncheon guests, In the past, Oakland Park hadnt gured out what it wanted to be. Now were moving to a lively downtown and a culinary destination. We need to focus on where were going and focus on the vision. Sallee thanked board members for the time and effort they put in to drive the Main Street organization. The purpose of Main Street, Constantine said, is to support the citys initiatives and work with the city and RMA and with the business and residential community members to promote Oakland Park as a progressive city. Main Street also seeks to attract the right business tenants and assist them with nding rental space, permitting and grand openings. Their focus is speci cally on the downtown area. The group works with property owners to stage special events, such as an Antique Classic Car Show, Cinema under the Stars and their signature event, Oktoberfest, which draws about 10,000 visitors over two days. Recently, theyve added food truck events, branded as Gourmet on Wheels, where participants taste various foods and enjoy live music and arts and crafts. One is scheduled Saturday, June 2, on Northeast 12 Avenue in front of Big Dog Station. Constantine noted that several businesses have opened in the downtown in the past year, including the Goodwill Industries Boutique Store on Oakland Park Boulevard, FastPrintz, Evas Ice Cream Parlor, Pet Therapy, Recovery Real Estate and The Planted Aquarium Store, all on Northeast 12 Avenue and the Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club at Primavera Plaza off East Oakland Park Boulevard.

The outspoken Frazer loved this city said her friend and past club president Jack Disher. Even though she came from New York, she was de nitely a Deer eld Beach native, Disher said remembering Frazer who died two years ago. She was also a staunch Republican and longtime Kiwanian. Some her best moments were in political arguments with Dave Gravelle, another local Kiwanis Club member. They would have hilarious ghts over local, state and national politics, Disher said this week. But at the end of the day, Frazer would always say to Gravelle, Just remember, Dave, you are one of my best friends. She always let people know where she stood she was a tough one, Disher said, But she would be so honored that people want to recognize Kiwanis golf tournament honors beloved member Winnie Frazerher.

There has been no public outcry to increase the mayors term to four years, he said. The change would be the third in eight years. Vincent said the commission has rushed the proposal for discussion in order to get in on the ballot this November. Why force a referendum and why so quickly? Commissioner Mark Brown said he also voted at the previous meeting to have the ordinance drafted. But he had no problem with it going back to the Charter Review Board for a thorough look and possibly putting it on the ballot in 2013. Brown said he had reservations about making the new rules retroactive to apply to the current mayors term. I have to go with my gut feeling. Dont take it personally. Its not directed at you, Brown said to Mayor Roseann Minnet. He said the proposal was fast-tracked because of a June deadline from Broward County to get any proposed amendment on the ballot. This is calling into question the CRB and this commission, and it looks like its being rushed through to bene t Mayor Minnet, Brown said. And she has nothing to do with that. I cant support this the way its turning out. Vice Mayor Scot Sasser said he was in complete disagreement with his two colleagues. This is just being put on the ballot. I wont tell you the way I would vote. We were putting this in your hands. Im not waf ing on it. Its the democratic process to let you make the decision, he said, referring to voters. Sasser moved to approve the ordinance calling for the amendment, but he got no second. In explaining his no vote later, Vincent said he wanted the commission to urge the Charter Review Board to follow procedures of earlier boards and conduct two meetings with public input and a third meeting of the board before sending any proposed changes to the charter to the town commission.

The Pelican 15 Friday, June 1, 2012 Although the exact cause is unknown, long periods in microgravity contribute to the loss of calcium which is essential to the bodys process of replenishing bone which is constantly broken down and rebuilt. On Earth in normal gravity, muscles are being constantly used by the body to move and hold up posture. Without gravity muscles get used far less and begin to atrophy. To combat these losses, astronauts spend more than two hours each day exercising on special equipment. But to win the Florida Student Astronaut Challenge, the team had to solve a few other problems rst. On May 19, Pompano Highs team beat 15 other high schools in the Astronaut Challenge, organized by the Florida Department of Education. Teams competed to see who could best master the workings of the preight operation, launch, orbit and landing in the Space Shuttle Enterprise ight simulator. Joe Caraccio, one of the teams mission controllers who plans to study mechanical engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder, said one of the biggest challenges was guring out which systems were needed and during the simulated landing phase and in which succession they should be powered on. If the team got the order wrong or powered up too many systems they wouldnt be able to land the shuttle. We thought we did terrible . they actually applauded us for that, said Caraccio. Although competition and a victory for Pompano Beach High School was the immediate outcome, the ultimate goal of the Astronaut Challenge is to stoke interest in STEM, or science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It was conceived for that very purpose, said Marchand. Its not [just] something we learn in books. Its something thats applied [to the real world]. But for some of Marchands students, including Caraccio and Portela, an interest in STEM was something that was stoked a long time ago. Ive always wondered why things work, said Nicholas Lucas, the teams research specialist who plans to study electrical engineering at either the University of Central Florida or Caltech in California. Id have more fun being the one who planned the trip than going into space. AstronautContinued from page 7The team after their victory.

We have been talking to a lot of people and want to help push the ball up hill as fast as we can, she said. Guest speaker Frank Schnidman, director, Center for Urban Redevelopment Education at Florida Atlantic University, spoke on Assembling Land by Assembling People. He questioned why there is a rush to buy out property owners in areas targeted for redevelopment. Instead, he suggested looking at a development area and looking at owners and where they are in their life cycle. What do they want? What are their goals for the property? Think about what you could do if you didnt have to pay the upfront cost to take them out. Why cant they stay in and invest in the development? Regarding the proposed culinary destination, Schnidman said, You have a bunch of little buildings that are supposed to go away. What if rather than buy them and take them off the tax rolls you found someone to build a culinary arts center like the Design Center of the Americas. Condo ownership could be offered in the new building in exchange for property. Ask the property owners to set their goals and objectives for how they want the culinary district to happen, he suggested. For a culinary district you need sparkling buildings, a catalytic project. You wont get that from individual investment. Look at the Design Center. You need a magnet like that. Tim Lonergan, a resident running for city commission next year, said hes optimistic about the culinary arts district coming to Oakland Park. He said the lack of progress in development on Main Street in the 12 years he has lived in the city has been a disappointment, and hes happy to see progress being made. Resident Jack Doren said Schnidmans was an interesting approach to involving the interests of landlords. The challenge would be to convince land owners it would be in their best interests to work collaboratively.

We go to these events with goody bags lled with samples and brochures which give the visitors education and a chance to sample a variety of products without investing in them. Asked if her practice bene ts from her participation in health fairs, Hecker replies, We certainly recommend follow ups for those in need. Many will go to hospital clinics. We try to help those who come to us with discounts so that they can afford the needed treatment. Both Dr. Melanie and her husband, David, have impeccable education, experience and credentials. They have published numerous articles on dermatologic therapies and cosmetic treatments and made appearances on many radio and television shows. They are both active members of the American Academy of Dermatology and the Dermatology Foundation. Cosmetic Dermatology is a vital part of their practice. Both are skilled in current laser treatments, all approved injectable llers, chemical peels and products that enhance skin rejuvenation. Hecker says, We dont judge. We accommodate with our best medical and cosmetic products and treatments. We are a full service medical group. Anti-aging treatments can be as simple as product use or product changes. Not all products have to be expensive. We have many ways to deal with cosmetic concerns. With a laugh, she adds, Just about everything available cosmetically has been tried out on me and that includes products and treatments. We customize the treatment to the individual. Her best free advice is use a good, high grade SP30 or higher sunscreen to protect skin from cancer and aging. Apply sunscreen every 90 to 120 minutes if outside. This husband and wife team up in the eld of dermatology, but also in parenting their three daughters and being a community involved family. Giving back is part of our lifestyle, Melanie says. Another one of my passions is Tara which means trap and release. I trap feral cats, take them to the animal aid mobile unit where they are completely vaccinated and sterilized. I pick up the bill. Once they are recovered they are released or placed. I love pets and I love this charity. I have one inside cat and two outside cats, one dog and 10 birds.

20 The Pelican Friday, June 1, 2012 WORSHIP DIRECTORY: Call 954-783-8700 to place your ad. Rev. Hyvenson Joseph Hoffmann, Elsa BrehmElsa Brehm Hoffmann was born Oct. 11, 1907 in Yonkers, NY. This was a time when Theodore Roosevelt was president, gas was 6 cents a gallon, and Oklahoma became the 46th state. She was a first generation German American. Elsa had many chores as a young child. Later she would be of great help to her parents as they ran and grew their bakery supplies business. Elsa was married in 1926 and had a wonderful marriage and partnership with her husband Bill. They grew the family roofing business that Bill had developed prior to their marriage. From the start, Bills piano playing and Elsas love of singing were an important aspect of their social life. Their special blend of work and enjoyment of loved ones was always part of their lifestyle. Elsa felt the Westchester Country Club was an excellent place for family to meet and enjoy themselves together. Eventually Elsa and Bill lived on the grounds of the club area in Rye, NY. She kept a beautiful home and entertained frequently. Bill had some bronchial issues in the winters so seasonal Florida trips became necessary for his health in the 1930s. Friends urged Elsa to stay home in Mount Vernon, NY. These friends told her that there would be no milk Elsa Hoffmann never missed a beat in her 104 years of friends, family and lifeObituariesin the wilds of Florida for her baby. Elsa insisted on spending the cold months in Florida for Bills health. Eventually they decided to buy a motel of their own, Jasmine Villa, in Pompano Beach, to run seasonally. They owned and operated it for about 20 years starting in the 1950s. Elsa planned many excursions from froggigging to horse races and Key West trips. Guests became friends for life. Elsa and Bill raised four wonderfully beautiful and diverse children, two boys and two girls, Bud, Joan, Gail, and Pamela. Elsa sold the house in Rye after Bill passed and retired in Hillsboro Beach All her years were filled with activities. She played cards (bridge, gin and hand and foot) with several groups of dear friends, continued to travel, flipped real estate condos into her 90s, attended and planned parties, and was involved with charitable organizations for social interaction as well as volunteer work (NE Focal Point, Hillsboro Womens League, QUOTA to name a few). She treasured her beloved First Presbyterian Church, too. Elsa also volunteered for local womens hospital auxiliaries to add her creative touch to fundraising events when she lived in New York. Up until last year she had made visits to cheer John Knox Village residents who all absolutely adored her. Within her centenarian years she made her modeling debut at a First Presbyterian Church luncheon. Elsas greatest joy was in finding even the smallest things or gestures to make others happy. Her goal was to do that every day and she did. She also liked to regularly set and accomplish goals. If she did not know what to do she relied on her faith and would make some decision to move forward rather than procrastinate. Elsa with her long, vital and happy life did not escape the attention of the media. She was noticed by US News and World Report, The Christian Science Monitor, Barbara Walters, a story on NBC News (when she shared she was ready to give up driving which inspired others to make the decision when it was right for them too), loving, inspiring local press articles from The Pelican, The Sun Sentinel, The Observer, Boomer Times, Lighthouse Point Magazine, and more. So many people have appreciated our Elsa. So much interest was generated, in fact, that granddaughter, Sharon Elsa Textor-Black, wrote a book about Elsas See HOFFMANN on page 21

The Pelican 21 Friday, June 1, 2012 and the cities. Everyone was in a panic. The situation brought to light the dispersion of water in different in cities. The Pompano Beach water plant serves most of the city residents and some Lighthouse Point residents in the southern part of the city. But annexed areas, Leaisureville, Highlands and Cresthaven remained with Broward County water after they became part of the city. The majority of Deer eld Beach is served by city water while some parts are under county water. Johnson pointed out that many residents in condominiums have no idea where they get their water since the bill is paid by the condominium board. Brown said that at no time were customers of Pompano Beach water in danger. And at no point were they under a boil water alert. On Tuesday, representatives of the Broward County Water and Wastewater departments will be on hand in Pompano Beach to answer questions about the failure of communications. Tony Karda, county water representative, explained how the alerts went out. The contamination was found in a Pompano well, and by state mandate, the alert was posted on E -mail and those customers whose phone numbers are listed with the county received telephone alerts. Our rst duty is to protect the customers. Karda further explained that the contaminated sample was found prior to that water being sent to the decontamination and distribution center. The [contaminated] water was never in the distribution pipes, he said. County water users may see information on their next water bill to indicate how they can sign up for water alerts.

Elsa had recently shared a prayer She thanked God for every wonderful day she has had on this earth and for her extraordinary long healthy fulfilling life She also said she would continue to live each day to the fullest but was ready to go whenever God was ready for her.

24 The Pelican Friday, June 1, 2012 Pompano Beach Fire Rescue here responded to an apartment fire at 9:40 a.m. Wednesday morning at 2275 NE 9 St. A neighbor reported smoke coming from the apartment. No one was home at the time of the fire. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue evacuated the small apartment complex, extinguished the blaze and discovered the family pet parakeet Limey dead in the living room. The apartment is a total loss. The Red Cross is assisting the mother and her two children, ages 13 and 6, with temporary housing. Pompano Beach Fire Rescue is investigating the cause of the fire. Family safe, but pet parakeet succumbs to apartment re course, the famous slow roasted, dry rubbed and BBQ slathered baby back ribs is also a highly recommended option especially on Monday nights when it is offered at only $9.95 for the full rack. Delectable chicken can be enjoyed with mango salsa, blackened, Marsala and Milanese to name but a few popular preparations. On the seafood front, the Black & Blue shrimp is excellent and our Wasabi Salmon is de nitely one of our biggest sellers, says Grant. The menu also features snapper Francaise, grilled Mahi and sh & chips. My favorite is the sesame seared tuna, adds bartender Dee Caldwell. Fun appetizers to share include the buffalo chicken wings, quesadillas, portabella mushroom stack, nachos and Teriyaki chicken skewers. Angus beef burgers, Philly cheese subs, Albacore tuna melt and Caribbean Bronzed Mahi sandwiches can be enjoyed anytime until closing. For the health conscious, sample the Gorgonzola with baby greens, grape tomatoes, Kalamata olives and croutons with balsamic vinaigrette. Orthe Santa Fe Chicken salad, replete with crunchy Romaine, black bean & corn salsa and tortilla strips tossed in a tangy chipotle ranch dressing. There is plenty to enjoy for the early risers as well. Served from 7 to 11 a.m. daily, Galuppis breakfast options are inexpensive and plentiful. Eggs any style with home fries, ham, bacon or sausage are a great way to start the day. Other favorites include the large uffy Belgian waf es, French toast, pancakes, egg wraps, omelettes and country fried steak.

The Pelican 25 Friday, June 1, 2012 BROWARD SHERIFF OFFICEDeerfield Beach Broward Sheriffs Office detectives are looking for two brazen burglars who parked a bright red vehicle, possibly a Mercedes, in the driveway of a home they burglarized. The incident happened around noon on April 13 in the 1400 block of Southeast 8 St. A witness saw the two burglars park the car, which had a possible partial tag beginning with the numbers , in the driveway. The duo went into the back of the house and were later seen jumping a fence into a neighbors yard. When BSO deputies arrived, they discovered that both residences had been entered by force. The burglars apparently smashed a rear window and a sliding-glass door and targeted the homes master bedrooms, taking cash and jewelry. Anyone with information about the red car or the burglars can contact BSO Det. Ian Kuechler at 954-422-5829 or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at 954-493-8477 or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.

On June 3, Mysiuk, who works for the Pompano Beach Fire Rescue, and 30 other bicyclists will begin an eightday, 550-mile bicycle ride, known as the Brotherhood Ride, from Naples to St. Petersburg to honor Elliot, eight police officers and two forest rangers who died in the line of duty.

RJ Boyle, owner of RJ Boyle Studios in Lighthouse Point, says as the weather changes and the reading on the barometer starts to change, anglers could have anywhere from between 15 to 30 minutes of great fishing as the fish get riled up if youre in the right spot and doing everything else right. If you time it right you can have a pretty good day, said Boyle. But theses special conditions wont last forever. It will shut down right when the weather stabilizes, said Boyle. And Boyle advises if any anglers do find themselves caught in a storm, put any antennas and rods down and turn off any electronics. Boaters should also invest in a good radar but if thats too pricey a radio should be the backup plan. This weekend looks like more wind and rain so anglers who get caught in a storm might have a chance to make it worth the less-than-ideal boating conditions. And lately, says Boyle, anglers have been catching a lot. One catch was a 450-Storms bring bad conditions and good shingpound swordfish, said Boyle. Those looking for something to catch soon should have a pretty good selection to choose from. Kings, sailfish, dolphin, kingfish and more have been biting lines.Tell The Pelican about your fish story! 954-783-8700!

On Monday, June 4 at 12 p.m., the Pompano Beach leg of the Brotherhood Ride will occur as the cyclists are escorted from Station #24, 2001 NE 10 St., to Station #61 by units from the fire department. Mysiuk said it was an honor to be the one chosen to represent the department. Ill be giving it my all for 550 miles. Its going to be a tough ride but its a tough thing to lose someone like that. Everybody still cant believe it happened to him. The Brotherhood Ride is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization started in 2007 by Firefighter Jeff Morse, his wife, Candy, and a group of his fellow North Naples Firefighters after nine firefighters in Charleston, South Carolina. The Charleston 9 died in June 2007 as a result of a furniture store fire. Our main mission is to let the families know their loved one wont be forgotten, whether it be a year after [they die] or in the near future. The second is financial support, said Candy Morse, who estimates Brotherhood Ride has raised over $118,000 since it was started. So far, according to the Brotherhood Ride website, Mysiuk has raised $681 for this years ride.
