Walmart purchased the Kmart at 670 E. Oakland Park Blvd. and the adjacent Holsum bread bakery at 790 E. Oakland Park Blvd. for $11 million. According to Oakland Park Commissioner Jed Shank, Walmart executives plan to demolish the existing structures and build a new one sometime after Kmarts lease on the property expires in about three years. Calls to a Walmart spokesperson were not returned in time for Walmart purchases Oakland Park KmartKmart falls outside city limits, Resnick said he hopes Wilton Manors can work with Oakland Park to ensure the citys concerns, such as increased traf c, are addressed. The Kmart is located along Northeast 6 Avenue, directly across the street from the section of Wilton Manors on Oakland Park Boulevard. Northeast 6 Avenue also leads directly to Wilton Drive. Its going to have a huge effect on us, said Resnick. Oakland Park Mayor Anne Sallee said shes not necessarily in favor of the new Walmart but does favor new development in the city. She added that she hopes Walmart will be willing to work with the city in creating a store that ts into the urban environment. We need new development so obviously this is a good sign, she said. publication. Shank said he personally likes the idea of Walmart moving in but said he will listen to what the community has to say regarding the project. If Walmart does eventually move into the location Shank wants it to redevelop the waterfront portion of its property with a coffee shop or something along the water. Wilton Manors Mayor Gary Resnick also sees waterfront potential for the Kmart property. It could really be an attractive area, he said. And although the We need new development so obviously this is a good sign. SalleeBy Anne SirenPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach Great expectations are alive in Pompano Beach, and they are more than a Charles Dickens novel. The library of today is a place where there is an exchange of knowledge and information, says Monica Ponce de Leon, MPDL, an architectural and design company. Ponce de Leon is working in association with Silva Architects. She continues. The library will have several functions for everyone in the community, including afterschool activities and access to the media in many ways. That access will include Ipads in multiple locations throughout the building. Teenagers will have access to YouMedia where they can create websites, make videos and create music. The new library, planned to open in Pompano Beach in 2014 is planned for the corner of West Atlantic Boulevard and Southwest 1 Avenue, adjacent to city hall on a 10acre lot. This week the commission approved Phase I of the project which includes the library building, a public plaza and parking on what is now called the Civic Campus. The plaza is the third leg of an interconnectivity plan that will provide pedestrian access from Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard with a paved walkway across Dixie City approve phase I for civic campus and librarySee CAMPUS on page 14

The Pelican 3 Friday, June 15, 2012 Oakland Park Broward Countys Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division will perform drainage rehabilitation along Prospect Road between Northwest 8 Avenue and Andrews Avenue in Oakland Park on June 15. The project should be completed by July 8. Work includes the replacement of a storm water drain pipe under westbound Prospect Road and resurfacing the affected area. Residents should expect the following: Westbound Prospect Road will be narrowed to one lane. Access to all driveways will be maintained. Eastbound and westbound left turn lanes on Prospect Road within the project limits will be closed. All three eastbound lanes will remain open during construction. Construction in front of businesses and residences may not be continuous because the project is divided into several phases. Construction will be performed by utilizing double shifts in order to shorten the project duration and lessen impacts to the community. Drainage rehab starts this monthBy Judy VikPELICAN STAFFLauderdale-By-The-Sea Town commissioners have given a design team the goahead to plan drainage and streetscape improvements on Bougainvilla Drive. The vote at Tuesdays meeting was 4-1, Vice Mayor Scot Sasser dissenting. The plan for the twoblocks bordered by Pine Avenue and the re station includes 28 landscape islands, drainage improvements and a four-way stop with stamped, colored asphalt at Bougainvilla and Washingtonia. No longer included is a proposed roundabout at that intersection. Total project cost is $624,684. The roundabout was Reactions to Bougainvilla Drive improvement mixed, but town going ahead with projectremoved because Broward County of cials wouldnt allow it. They concluded there wasnt enough room for a full-blown circle, Bill Cole, project manager, told commissioners. The county also would not approve a four-way stop with design features. We have backtracked to a decorative four-way stop, said Jay Flynn, engineer. Thats all Broward County will approve. Cole reported that staff wrote to all 30 affected property owners about the plans and heard back from 16 of them. Only eight supported landscaping. The general consensus was that landscaping was not that well received, Cole said. The main objection was it impaired access to parking. Others did not want a tree in front of their house. Commissioner Mark Brown asked if residents changed their minds later and wanted a tree, could they be accommodated. Town Manager Connie Hoffmann said the plan calls for landscaping with curbing. If they dont call in the next couple weeks, its not something we can do. And if we only do the ones that want it, there is no rhyme or reasoning to the landscaping. Sasser said he voted against the plans because he doesnt think the town should put in the landscaping when so many people are objecting. During the meeting, Sasser said, I cant express enough my disappointment in this project. We hire professionals. We got the residents in an uproar. People are leaving us voicemails about the See IMPROVEMENT on page 21

Many people dont realize that such acts are not only detrimental to wild manatees but also illegal. Manatees are protected by two federal laws that prohibit harming individuals of these species. These laws are the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Marine Mammal Protection Act. The ESA de nes harm to include signi cant habitat modi cation or degradation where it actually kills or injures wildlife by signi cantly impairing essential behavioral patterns, including breeding, feeding, or sheltering. When manatees are given food or water, their natural behavior is changed; their feeding patterns are disrupted; and their travel and migration may also be affected. Furthermore, encouraging manatees to approach boat docks is a bad idea since watercraft are a signi cant contributor to manatee injury and mortality. Manatees are experts at nding food and fresh water they dont need our assistance. Quite the contrary, they will do far better if we can give them a wide berth and keep our distance. When manatees are congregated in shallow water during the warm months of the year, most often they are engaging in mating activity. When people swarm around these manatees, trying to get a closer look, they run the risk of disturbing the mating behavior of an endangered species, which is also against the law. While it can be exciting to see a manatee up close, it is really important to think about the consequences of our actions. You may have just been trying to get a quick photo, but did you just interrupt a male manatee that was getting ready to mate? As with all things in life, our choices have consequences, and we need to be aware of these implications. For more, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 1-888-404-3922.

Stay vigilant about protecting your home, your belongings and your identity. Dont let crime ruin your summer fun. The best advice is to stay alert. Be aware of whats going on in your neighborhood. Never hesitate to report suspicious activity to law enforcement. If you notice activity at your neighbors house when you know they are away on vacation, call 911 immediately. Your tip might be the one that helps BSO detectives catch up to an otherwise elusive burglar. If you notice someone lurking around cars in a parking lot, phone in that tip. If you recognize a suspect from a surveillance video, call Crime Stoppers of Broward County. You may remain anonymous, and Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Teaming up and keeping the lines of communication open between law enforcement and observant residents is the best defense against criminals. At home, lock your doors and dont forget to arm your alarm systems if you have them. When you are out and about, lock your car doors and never keep valuables in plain view. It only takes a few seconds for a car burglar to grab your purse, wallet or cell phone from your car while you step away to walk your dog, pay for Dont let criminals ruin your summer gas or put owers at a gravesite. Dont make it easier for criminals by leaving a door unlocked. Thinking of making some repairs before a hurricane approaches? Be wary of unlicensed contractors. They might take your money and run, do sub-standard work or have a criminal history. To make sure the workers in your home are licensed, visit the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations website at www.my oridalicense.com. Be suspicious of anyone who shows up uninvited at your door. Sometimes, criminals knock rst, and they can be very charming. They might ask for a drink, for directions, to use the phone or say they were sent to do work at your house. These are common tactics of scam artists and thieves. If you werent expecting them, dont let them in. Make your house look occupied when you are out. Leave a television or radio on, or set some lamps on timers. If you go away, stop your newspaper delivery and have someone collect your mail. You can even deter burglars with your landscaping. Plant some thorny bushes under windows that might make an illegal entry dif cult. Trim back foliage that might block the view of your home from the street, and add some outdoor lighting so that criminals cant operate unnoticed. Once you take the necessary precautions to protect yourself, your belongings and your family, you can relax and enjoy a fun and safe summer.

The Pelican 7 Friday, June 15, 2012 By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach The concept of a maritime village in Sullivan Park gained momentum this week with the announcement that the Florida Inland Navigational District, or FIND, has $307,500 in matching funds for planning, designing and engineering the improvement. The funding has not yet been secured, but Kris Mory, Community Redevelopment Agency coordinator, said her invitation to present the project before the FIND Board today [Friday] is an indicator that it is imminent. FIND grant could jumpstart maritime villageMory traveled to Cocoa Beach to make her presentation. The project would include Sullivan Park and the former Riverview Restaurant property on the north side of Hillsboro Boulevard at the Intracoastal Waterway. Phase I planning and design, could begin as soon as October if FIND grants the 50/50 match Mory said. The idea of building a small marina at Sullivan Park was explored some years ago and was reinforced by an Urban Land Institute workshop held here last year that contained the same vision. CRA Director Keven Klopp cautioned the CRA Board that the FIND match is good only if the project is built. And Mory said accepting the FIND grant could be a cash ow issue for next years CRA budget. The grant reimburses the city for its expenditures, meaning local dollars have to front the costs. Another requirement of FIND money is that the area must be accessible to the public. Suggested for the marina have been boat slips and paddleboard, kayak, canoe rentals and launching ramps.By Michael dOliveiraPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors The Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance wants Broward Countys cities to go Platinum. To attract new businesses to Broward, the Alliance is encouraging municipalities to join its Platinum Cities initiative and make their permitting process faster, smarter and more ef cient and Wilton Manors is the latest city to sign up. Bob Swindell. Alliance president and CEO, said one of the reasons the economy is in its current shape is a lack of con dence on the part of business owners. Swindell said making a citys permitting process as fast and easy as possible instills a sense of con dence in business owners and developers that of cials are doing their part to bring in new business. That con dence factor plays a huge role. And with the economy reducing the number of permits submitted, its really a perfect time for cities to look at the process, said Swindell. To become Platinum, cities must have permits available online, an expedited permitting process for businesses that are economically signi cant and they must have a single liaison between the city and the business. If its economically important to the city [they need to make sure that] it does get special treatment, said Swindell. As part of the Alliance, cities participate in networking events and are Platinum city designations grow in Broward Efforts focus on attracting new businesses to move into the county See PLATINUM on page 24

By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDr. Kelli Mosley-Mendez takes great pains to make her patients feel at home. From their rst view of the outer of ce, decorated like a high end living room, to the extra time and attention they are given, the client comes rst in this dermatology practice. I dont see 60 patients a day, said Dr. Mosley-Mendez. This is almost a concierge practice. My staff is very well trained and we all spend lots of time explaining treatments and outcomes to the patients. There is no rushing them in and out. Once a client comes in here, he or she usually comes back. Interested in dermatology her whole life, Dr. Mosley-Mendez obtained her degree in Osteopathic Medicine from Nova Southeastern University in 1998 and completed her residency at Broward General Hospital in 2002. After working in the area for awhile she established her rst of ce in Miami Lakes. A little over a year ago, she moved to Lighthouse Point with her husband Kevin, a radiologist at Florida Medical Center, and her son Kevin, Jr., 9, a national diving champion. Its a move she is glad they made. In April 2011, she opened DKM Skin Care at 4801 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. I was basically starting over, but I like the clientele up here and being near Holy Cross Hospital gives me lots of referrals. We wanted to live on the water because we have a boat and Lighthouse Point is a good place for a family, MosleyMendez said. The dermatologist took her practice another step and became a certi ed pharmacist so she can dispense prescription drugs for skin problems. She also sells her own skin care line to treat conditions such as psoriasis, acne, rosacea and melasma. Along with moisturizers and cleansers, the best seller in the line is an anti-aging lotion containing essential ingredients that rejuvenate the skin. These are medical grade products only available at a doctors of ce, she said. What that means is the products contain a higher percentage of active ingredients than what can be sold over the counter at department stores. And the prices are comparable, in some cases cheaper, since most DKM products sell in the $20 to $40 range. This practice treats all skin diseases and conditions and offers cosmetology procedures such as vein treatments, skin resurfacing, Botox injections and Juvederm applications. The newest lasers remove surgical lines, scars, redness and dark spots on the skin. Within the last month, she has added a MOHS laboratory for her skin cancer patients and will schedule Dr. Kellie Mosley-Mendez in her of ces at 4801 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale.

NeubergerPELICAN STAFFWhen Lillian Richstone Kimmel handed her car keys to her grandson, it was with a great deal of sadness. I was kissing my independence goodbye, and I knew it, she says. I also knew that my vision was not what it should be, and I didnt want to put myself or others in danger. It was a responsible decision, but oh, so hard to make. Every driver resists relinquishing the keys to the car, but the decision will come to each of us sooner or later. Much to Kimmels surprise she received a letter from the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. It read: Dear Ms. Kimmel, We received your statement that you are giving up driving. We have noted in your driver record that your license was voluntarily surrendered. We commend you for making this decision, as well as for compiling such a good driver record. If more of our drivers had an attitude toward safety and a driver record like yours, we would have less deaths and injuries on our highways each year. You may apply for an identi cation card at any driver license of ce. Please schedule an appointment by calling your local of ce or going on line at www. hsmv.gov.She surrendered her drivers license because it was the right thing to do, and it brought her a thank you letter Again, we thank you and extend to you and yours our very best wishes for the future.

A man making a delivery to a local business was left empty handed after someone stole his semi tractor trailer, which contained over $150,000 worth of meat. The driver from NKD Logistics parked the truck containing the delivery for Associated Grocers, a food distributor, at around 7:45 a.m. May 29. The driver parked the semi on the gravel at the entranceway of the business located at 1141 SW 12 Avenue in Pompano Beach and walked in to check in. When he walked out to get the load, the truck was gone. Video captured on a surveillance camera shows a white truck pull up behind the semi right after the driver parks.

12 The PelicanFriday, June 15, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFLauderdale-By-The-Sea Owners of commercial properties in the town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea can now apply for grant funding to help with exterior painting of their businesses. Commissioners unanimously approved implementation of a Paint Only Program at their June 12 meeting. The commission has budgeted $35,000 for a trial program to provide grants for exterior improvements to commercial properties other than hotels. There is a separate allocation in the budget for hotels. The program is modeled after a program offered by the Community Redevelopment Agency, or CRA, in Hollywood. More than 60 property owners participated in Hollywood. In the LBTS program, quali ed property owners will be reimbursed 50 percent of the cost of an approved exterior painting, patching and pressure cleaning project, up to a maximum grant of $5,000. All work must be completed within 60 days of the grant execution date. The program is aimed at encouraging property owners to improve the exterior of buildings in order to improve the aesthetics of the town and the viability of the towns commercial districts, according to Pat Himelberger, assistant to the town manager. Property/business owners must submit an application prior to beginning any work. Town staff will review the request, and the town manager will grant nal approval. Project colors and paints must be approved by the town. Grants will be processed and approved in a rst come, rst served basis until program funding is depleted.Commercial property owners get break on paint Town offers 50 percent grant on exterior paint See SIGHTINGS on page 13SightingsContinued from page 91 St., from 9 to 11 a.m. to answer questions and provide strategies on various computer-related issues. 954586-1111. 6-22 A performance of the The Jobless Gods and Goddesses will be held at 5 p.m. at the Mermaid Music School, 1111 E.

Cost for the library and its contents are funded through Broward County at $11 million. Ponce de Leon, who will plan the interior space of the library, says that work has not yet begun, but she will be working with the county to complete those plans. We are very keen on balancing the needs of users at all stages of life. Quiet and noisy spaces will be plentiful so folks who want to use the library as a lounge for reading can do so without being disturbed. That balance is really important in Pompano Beach, Ponce de Leon said. Plans for a cultural center on the property are proposed for Phase II. Costs for a cultural center could be as much as $6 million. No funding sources for a proposed cultural center have been identi ed.

Mayor Lamar Fisher said his phones blew up. Commissioner Charlotte Burrie said people were freakin out. And most of the blame was laid on the media until Commissioner Barry Dockswell took up the medias mantle after others were more disdainful. Terry Karda, Broward County Water and Wastewater Operations Director, who apologized on behalf of county water services, referred to a press release that had been sent to the media indicating that the Code Red was for Broward County water clients only. Said Vice Mayor George Brummer, The media has neither the inclination nor the brains to ask the right questions. Dockswell didnt buy it. He pointed out that there were code words indicating that the Code Red was for residents who used county water. He said, Dont blame it on the media. Thats what you told them. He held up a copy of City wants answers to Memorial weekend Code RedSee CODE RED on page 24Unity in the Community awarded two $500 college scholarship to Suzie Damier [left], graduate of Blanche Ely High School.

She advised residents to contact their primary medical provider and ask for extended prescriptions in order to be ready for hurricane season. Also, consult with pharmacies to maintain these prescriptions under your pro le so they can be lled. You need to be self-sufcient for a minimum of ve days, House said. Those who require support from a medical supply company, such as people who need oxygen delivered every 30 days or those with asthma who need nebulizers, should become educated on systems that work in the short term that dont require electricity, House said. If a resident is concerned about health issues, he or she should talk to AMR about a personal plan. We will assist persons in creating a plan based on individual need, House said. If there is a special medical need, we can enter the information in our computer system. That way, for example, AMR will know that Betty Smith is oxygen dependent, what current medicines she is taking, her allergies, the name of her physician and the hospital she normally goes to. After the winds die down, if AMR personnel go out to do wellness checks, they rst target those on their list. Its important to have enough food and water on hand to be self-suf cient for ve days. The type of food is also important. Lots of canned goods are high in fat and salt and could irritate already existing conditions such as cardiac, House said. Products such as Ensure and Boost are full of vitamins and minerals, and there are many fruit and vegetable drinks that have a high shelf life. Snack foods such as unsalted pretzels and unsalted nuts are also good. Another smart move is to post emergency contacts on the refrigerator. Condos residents should organize a community meeting and formulate a plan for sustaining themselves with no electricity or running water. Our team will come out and meet with them to help formulate a plan, House said. Were experts in disaster management. Such buildings should have a stash of food and generator capability, she said.

I did not hear anything about scholarships until after the Green Although the committee has decided not to manage the Green Market next year, Standich said the decision was made before the issue of scholarship money arose. We decided it was too much work. It was tough being there at 5 a.m. But I am getting calls from people interested in producing it and Ill share my information and do anything I can to make it a success.

A MOHS surgeon is trained to read tissue slides in the on-site lab and can proceed immediately to do more surgery as required during the procedure. Like others in her eld, Dr. Mosley-Mendez is seeing a rise in skin cancer patients. She attributes that to people continuing to go into the sun despite the warnings and the popularity of tanning salons. She recommends annual skin exams. One of her long term patients, Kim Van Sant, brings her whole family to DKM. She recalled how concerned Dr. Mosley-Mendez was when treating one of Van Sants sons. She was so apologetic that the numbing shot would be a bit painful, Van Sant remembers. She herself has had numerous procedures including vein removal and skin peels for sun damage. I dont think she has ever recommended anything that I would not recommend to someone else, Van Sant said. This dermatology of ce also offers a Slim Down program which is doctor monitored for effective weight loss.

He said a lot of words, time and money have been wasted that could have been avoided. Hoffmann said the roundabout proposal hasnt taken a lot of time. She said a great deal of time and design effort has gone into an attempt to beautify the street. We came up with a viable plan that would have required parking in the street, and that was not accepted, she said, noting its been worth the effort. We wont think of doing that on Poinciana [a nearby street that is also in line for drainage improvements]. Beauti cation wont be possible on streets with 90degree backout parking. Commissioner Stuart Dodd said hes also very disappointed in how this project has gone. Were trying to invest in drainage and swale improvements. The swale is a town swale. Its not their car park [parking lot]. We need to consider whats best for the town even if it upsets a few residents. Commissioner Chris Vincent said its important to hear from the public, but he found some of their reaction quite a shock. If someone came to him and wanted to spend $800,000 in front of his house, he would be all for it. If we vet everyones opinion, imagine what this town will look like. It will look like Swiss cheese, he said. We try to accommodate everyone, but we cant, said Mayor Roseann Minnet. We cant make everyone happy.

The major equipment, Klopp noted, had to be specied as LEED certi ed, the environmental standard under which the pier buildings are being built. Mayor Peggy Noland was the rst to protest the inclusion of minor appliances. I am surprised we are spending money on this. Should this expense be put on us? She questioned whether or not the city would be responsible for maintenance of the accessory equipment. We dont want that, she said. Commissioners then argued the bene ts of letting the restaurant operator make decisions on accessory appliances. How much do we want to invest to provide them with an economic foundation? Commissioner Ben Preston asked. Commissioner Joe Miller said, Is our investing in this equipment curtailing our ability to get the best vendor? Were not restaurateurs. Miller also urged staff to include an outdoor-seating area in the bid package and the board agreed. Klopp said the space adds 36 seats, almost doubling restaurant capacity. Vice Mayor Bill Ganz moved to accept the bid list as presented by staff with the exception of the minor equipment and scaled down to include just the core xtures. Also up for discussion, was operating hours of the restaurant. Originally, the specs were for a minimum nine-hour day. Commissioners changed that to 12 hours, with a 6 a.m. opening. Mayor Noland thought the leasee would opt for longer hours. We should allow them to remain open. This restaurant is an absolute gold mine. Whoever comes here will know what they are doing dont tie their hands. Commissioners agreed the restaurant could remain open longer than 12 hours a day if requested by the leasee. Also required of bidders will be a menu that is familyfriendly and is reasonably priced.

Make your releases clearer, Dockswell added. Some possible solutions came from the evening that included suggestions that city of cials get a heads up before Code Red messages go to residents. One suggestion was to have telephone numbers that contain updated messages even if the response were, There is no emergency. Karta said 2,700 calls came into the county water plant. All of those calls heard nothing more than an employees voice mail. Residents wanting to keep up with emergency information should call the city or county that supplies them with water to update their telephone numbers. Karta said that Red Code alerts reached 43 percent of the residents. Thats pretty poor, he said. We dont have correct numbers. Residents in Pompano Beach can sign up for email alerts from the city website, mypompanobeach.com. Fisher pointed out that Randy Brown, director of utilities received the Code Red four hours from the time of the discovery of the contaminated well. Karta added that at no time were residents in danger. The contamination had been found in a well. That was water that had not yet gone through the treatment center.

Since the permit process changes were already in place Heidi Shafran, community development services department director, called it a no-brainer for Wilton Manors to take be a part of the Alliance. Before Wilton Manors 15 cities, including Pompano Beach, Deer eld Beach, Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs and Tamarac all joined. So far 89 expedited building permits have been issued in Pompano, including one to the developers of the new Marriott hotel on Ocean Boulevard. Jeff Bruce, senior project manager for the hotel, said the expedited permitting process has been helpful but the city putting the whole process online has been even more signi cant. The eplan [or electronic plan review] probably expedited the project more than anything else, said Bruce. It disseminates approvals right away. It also simpli es one aspect that isnt important to the project but one that Bruce still appreciates: reducing paperwork. The level of drawing for a project like this is pretty cumbersome, he said. But with documents being online for him and city of cials to review, lugging around giant architectural drawings and renderings to meetings is now, for the most part, a thing of the past. The Marriott, which Bruce says will be nished by June 2013, will be comprised of two buildings, an eight-story and a nine-story. Along with 219 rooms, the hotel will have conference space, a ball room, large lawn event deck, tness center and all the amenities you would expect at a Marriot. Bruce adds that the permitting process contributes to the perception that Pompano Beach of cials want and are encouraging development in their city. I think the city is being accommodating. There are timing issues but the city has worked with us, he said.PlatinumContinued from page 7

The Pelican 25 Friday, June 15, 2012 period June 8, incumbents Vice Mayor Tom Green and Commissioner Julie Carson and challengers Kimber White and Sal Torre will vie for the seats. Because Wilton Manors isnt divided into districts, the two candidates with the highest number of votes will win the Nov. 6 election. Mayor Gary Resnick, with no opponent ling to run against him, was automatically re-elected to a third term. Resnick won his inaugural term as mayor in 2008 and was rst elected to the commission in 1998. Resnick thanked residents and said he could not be mayor without the support of city staff. I like to think people in general are satis ed [with the job Im doing]. Resnick may not have been eligible for another term if Wilton Manors residents hadnt voted in favor of the January referendum that bypassed the provision in the county ethics code that prohibits elected of cials from lobbying. The county de nes a lobbyist as anyone, paid or unpaid, who seeks to in uence a public of cial or employee on behalf of a nonpublic entity. When county commissioners discussed the issue last year, Resnick was mentioned because he is a registered lobbyist, attorney and partner at GrayRobinson, PA, a Fort Lauderdale law rm. Resnick represents private and government clients in communications law and other issues. Sal Torre, who serves on the citys budget review committee and was a part of the Wilton Drive Task force before it was disbanded, said he wants to focus on how the city can expand existing programs and facilities to bring in new revenue sources. Torre also said he wants to work with city staff to bring in new development. Its a very important thing for our future, he said. Speci cally, Torre would like to see more commercial development along Andrews Avenue and Powerline Road. Certain areas could have higher density. Torre bought a house in Wilton Manors nine years ago and became a full-time city resident about four years ago. He works as a chef for Sysco Food Service. Visit www.pompanopelican.com. to read Wilton Manors candidate interviews. So far, according to his submitted treasurers report, Green has raised $4,075, including $1,000 of his own money, and says that since the report was submitted he has raised about $800 more. Greens rst campaign donation came in March. So far he has spent $750 on a voting list, printing and a campaign event. Carson said she has made a $300 contribution to her campaign but hasnt started any fundraising efforts yet. White and Torre also say they havent started raising money.

Big swords are out and aboutBy Michael dOliveiraPELICAN STAFFBig swords and lots of them could go to a anglers this weekend if the weather holds and their skills are up to the challenge. RJ Boyle, of RJ Boyle Studios in Lighthouse Point, says a few clients have come up big in the swordfish division lately. Over the last week we had four clients, from different parts of the country, we fished with and they were all pleased to catch a number of swordfish. So if youre looking to catch a big sword and the weather allows, now would be a good time. At least nine, including two that were 400 lbs. or better made it into the boat. They were all able to take some meat home, said Boyle. Swordfish is considered good table fare and a premium item on any menu. And, compared to storebought fish thats been frozen and stored for a length of time before making it to the seafood isle, the anglers who caught their own meal got it as fresh as possible. Still though, they had to work for their dinner. One 375-lbs. sword, caught by Alex Lipworth using a split tail mullet as bait, was reeled in from a depth of 1600 ft twice. The crazy thing about this fish is we reeled the fish all the way to the surface and he saw the boat and he went all the way back down to 1600 feet, said Boyle, who added that the struggle to bring the sword in took over three hours. Those looking for tips on bait, rigging or other fishingrelated issues can call RJ Boyle Studios at 954-4205001.RJ Boyle, left, and Alex Lipworth show off one of the days sword sh catches.

Walmart purchased the Kmart at 670 E. Oakland Park Blvd. and the adjacent Holsum bread bakery at 790 E. Oakland Park Blvd. for $11 million. According to Oakland Park Commissioner Jed Shank, Walmart executives plan to demolish the existing structures and build a new one sometime after Kmart’s lease on the property expires in about three years. Calls to a Walmart spokesperson were not returned in time for Walmart purchases Oakland Park KmartKmart falls outside city limits, Resnick said he hopes Wilton Manors can work with Oakland Park to ensure the city’s concerns, such as increased traf c, are addressed. The Kmart is located along Northeast 6 Avenue, directly across the street from the section of Wilton Manors on Oakland Park Boulevard. Northeast 6 Avenue also leads directly to Wilton Drive. “It’s going to have a huge effect on us,” said Resnick. Oakland Park Mayor Anne Sallee said she’s not necessarily in favor of the new Walmart but does favor new development in the city. She added that she hopes Walmart will be willing to work with the city in creating a store that ts into the urban environment. “We need new development so obviously this is a good sign,” she said. publication. Shank said he personally likes the idea of Walmart moving in but said he will listen to what the community has to say regarding the project. If Walmart does eventually move into the location Shank wants it to redevelop the waterfront portion of its property “with a coffee shop or something along the water.” Wilton Manors Mayor Gary Resnick also sees waterfront potential for the Kmart property. “It could really be an attractive area,” he said.

The Pelican 3 Friday, June 15, 2012 Oakland Park Broward County’s Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division will perform drainage rehabilitation along Prospect Road between Northwest 8 Avenue and Andrews Avenue in Oakland Park on June 15. The project should be completed by July 8. Work includes the replacement of a storm water drain pipe under westbound Prospect Road and resurfacing the affected area. Residents should expect the following: Westbound Prospect Road will be narrowed to one lane. Access to all driveways will be maintained. Eastbound and westbound left turn lanes on Prospect Road within the project limits will be closed. All three eastbound lanes will remain open during construction.

They concluded there wasn’t enough room for a full-blown circle, Bill Cole, project manager, told commissioners. The county also would not approve a four-way stop with design features. “We have backtracked to a decorative four-way stop,” said Jay Flynn, engineer. “That’s all Broward County will approve.” Cole reported that staff wrote to all 30 affected property owners about the plans and heard back from 16 of them. Only eight supported landscaping. “The general consensus was that landscaping was not that well received,” Cole said. The main objection was it impaired access to parking. Others did not want a tree in front of their house. Commissioner Mark Brown asked if residents changed their minds later and wanted a tree, could they be accommodated. Town Manager Connie Hoffmann said the plan calls for landscaping with curbing. “If they don’t call in the next couple weeks, it’s not something we can do. And if we only do the ones that want it, there is no rhyme or reasoning to the landscaping.” Sasser said he voted against the plans because he doesn’t think the town should put in the landscaping when so many people are objecting.

Many people don’t realize that such acts are not only detrimental to wild manatees but also illegal. Manatees are protected by two federal laws that prohibit harming individuals of these species. These laws are the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Marine Mammal Protection Act. The ESA de nes harm to include “signi cant habitat modi cation or degradation where it actually kills or injures wildlife by signi cantly impairing essential behavioral patterns, including breeding, feeding, or sheltering.” When manatees are given food or water, their natural behavior is changed; their feeding patterns are disrupted; and their travel and migration may also be affected. Furthermore, encouraging manatees to approach boat docks is a bad idea since watercraft are a signi cant contributor to manatee injury and mortality. Manatees are experts at nding food and fresh water – they don’t need our assistance. Quite the contrary, they will do far better if we can give them a wide berth and keep our distance. When manatees are congregated in shallow water during the warm months of the year, most often they are engaging in mating activity. When people swarm around these manatees, trying to get a closer look, they run the risk of disturbing the mating behavior of an endangered species, which is also against the law. While it can be exciting to see a manatee up close, it is really important to think about the consequences of our actions. You may have just been trying to get a quick photo, but did you just interrupt a male manatee that was getting ready to mate? As with all things in life, our choices have consequences, and we need to be aware of these implications. For more, call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 1-888-404-3922.

Stay vigilant about protecting your home, your belongings and your identity. Don’t let crime ruin your summer fun. The best advice is to stay alert. Be aware of what’s going on in your neighborhood. Never hesitate to report suspicious activity to law enforcement. If you notice activity at your neighbors’ house when you know they are away on vacation, call 911 immediately. Your tip might be the one that helps BSO detectives catch up to an otherwise elusive burglar. If you notice someone lurking around cars in a parking lot, phone in that tip. If you recognize a suspect from a surveillance video, call Crime Stoppers of Broward County. You may remain anonymous, and Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Teaming up and keeping the lines of communication open between law enforcement and observant residents is the best defense against criminals. At home, lock your doors and don’t forget to arm your alarm systems if you have them. When you are out and about, lock your car doors and never keep valuables in plain view.

They might ask for a drink, for directions, to use the phone or say they were sent to do work at your house. These are common tactics of scam artists and thieves. If you weren’t expecting them, don’t let them in. Make your house look occupied when you are out. Leave a television or radio on, or set some lamps on timers. If you go away, stop your newspaper delivery and have someone collect your mail. You can even deter burglars with your landscaping. Plant some thorny bushes under windows that might make an illegal entry dif cult. Trim back foliage that might block the view of your home from the street, and add some outdoor lighting so that criminals can’t operate unnoticed. Once you take the necessary precautions to protect yourself, your belongings and your family, you can relax and enjoy a fun and safe summer.

The project would include Sullivan Park and the former Riverview Restaurant property on the north side of Hillsboro Boulevard at the Intracoastal Waterway. Phase I planning and design, could begin as soon as October if FIND grants the 50/50 match Mory said. The idea of building a small marina at Sullivan Park was explored some years ago and was reinforced by an Urban Land Institute workshop held here last year that contained the same vision. CRA Director Keven Klopp cautioned the CRA Board that the FIND match is good only if the project is built. And Mory said accepting the FIND grant could be a cash ow issue for next year’s CRA budget. The grant reimburses the city for its expenditures, meaning local dollars have to front the costs. Another requirement of FIND money is that the area must be accessible to the public. Suggested for the marina have been boat slips and paddleboard, kayak, canoe rentals and launching ramps.By Michael d’OliveiraPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors – The Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance wants Broward County’s cities to go “Platinum.” To attract new businesses to Broward, the Alliance is encouraging municipalities to join its “Platinum Cities” initiative and make their permitting process faster, smarter and more ef cient – and Wilton Manors is the latest city to sign up. Bob Swindell. Alliance president and CEO, said one of the reasons the economy is in its current shape is a lack of con dence on the part of business owners. Swindell said making a city’s permitting process as fast and easy as possible instills a sense of con dence in business owners and developers that of cials are doing their part to bring in new business. “That con dence factor plays a huge role.” And with the economy reducing the number of permits submitted, “it’s really a perfect time for cities to look at the process,” said Swindell. To become “Platinum,” cities must have permits available online, an expedited permitting process for businesses that are economically signi cant and they must have a single liaison between the city and the business. “If it’s economically important to the city [they need to make sure that] it does get special treatment,” said Swindell. As part of the Alliance, cities participate in networking events and are Platinum city designations grow in Broward Efforts focus on attracting new businesses to move into the county See PLATINUM on page 24

By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDr. Kelli Mosley-Mendez takes great pains to make her patients feel at home. From their rst view of the outer of ce, decorated like a high end living room, to the extra time and attention they are given, the client comes rst in this dermatology practice. “I don’t see 60 patients a day, “ said Dr. Mosley-Mendez. “This is almost a concierge practice. My staff is very well trained and we all spend lots of time explaining treatments and outcomes to the patients. There is no rushing them in and out. Once a client comes in here, he or she usually comes back.” Interested in dermatology her whole life, Dr. Mosley-Mendez obtained her degree in Osteopathic Medicine from Nova Southeastern University in 1998 and completed her residency at Broward General Hospital in 2002. After working in the area for awhile she established her rst of ce in Miami Lakes. A little over a year ago, she moved to Lighthouse Point with her husband Kevin, a radiologist at Florida Medical Center, and her son Kevin, Jr., 9, a national diving champion. It’s a move she is glad they made. In April 2011, she opened DKM Skin Care at 4801 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. “I was basically starting over, but I like the clientele up here and being near Holy Cross Hospital gives me lots of referrals. We wanted to live on the water because we have a boat and Lighthouse Point is a good place for a family,” MosleyMendez said. The dermatologist took her practice another step and became a certi ed pharmacist so she can dispense prescription drugs for skin problems. She also sells her own skin care line to treat conditions such as psoriasis, acne, rosacea and melasma. Along with moisturizers and cleansers, the best seller in the line is an anti-aging lotion containing essential ingredients that rejuvenate the skin. “These are medical grade products only available at a doctor’s of ce,” she said. What that means is the products contain a higher percentage of active ingredients than what can be sold over the counter at department stores. And the prices are comparable, in some cases cheaper, since most DKM products sell in the $20 to $40 range. This practice treats all skin diseases and conditions and offers cosmetology procedures such as vein treatments, skin resurfacing, Botox injections and Juvederm applications. The newest lasers remove surgical lines, scars, redness and dark spots on the skin. Within the last month, she has added a MOHS laboratory for her skin cancer patients and will schedule Dr. Kellie Mosley-Mendez in her of ces at 4801 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale.

It was a responsible decision, but oh, so hard to make.

Commissioners unanimously approved implementation of a Paint Only Program at their June 12 meeting. The commission has budgeted $35,000 for a trial program to provide grants for exterior improvements to commercial properties other than hotels. There is a separate allocation in the budget for hotels. The program is modeled after a program offered by the Community Redevelopment Agency, or CRA, in Hollywood. More than 60 property owners participated in Hollywood. In the LBTS program, quali ed property owners will be reimbursed 50 percent of the cost of an approved exterior painting, patching and pressure cleaning project, up to a maximum grant of $5,000. All work must be completed within 60 days of the grant execution date. The program is aimed at encouraging property owners to improve the exterior of buildings in order to improve the aesthetics of the town and the viability of the town’s commercial districts, according to Pat Himelberger, assistant to the town manager. Property/business owners must submit an application prior to beginning any work. Town staff will review the request, and the town manager will grant nal approval. Project colors and paints must be approved by the town.

Mayor Lamar Fisher said his “phones blew up.” Commissioner Charlotte Burrie said people were “freakin’ out.” And most of the blame was laid on the media until Commissioner Barry Dockswell took up the media’s mantle after others were more disdainful. Terry Karda, Broward County Water and Wastewater Operations Director, who apologized on behalf of county water services, referred to a press release that had been sent to the media indicating that the Code Red was for Broward County water clients only. Said Vice Mayor George Brummer, “The media has neither the inclination nor the brains to ask the right questions.” Dockswell didn’t buy it. He pointed out that there were code words indicating that the Code Red was for residents who used county water. He said, “Don’t blame it on the media.

She advised residents to contact their primary medical provider and ask for extended prescriptions in order to be ready for hurricane season. Also, consult with pharmacies to maintain these prescriptions under your pro le so they can be lled. “You need to be self-suf cient for a minimum of ve days,” House said. Those who require support from a medical supply company, such as people who need oxygen delivered every 30 days or those with asthma who need nebulizers, should become educated on systems that work in the short term that don’t require electricity, House said. If a resident is concerned about health issues, he or she should talk to AMR about a personal plan. “We will assist persons in creating a plan based on individual need,” House said. “If there is a special medical need, we can enter the information in our computer system.” That way, for example, AMR will know that Betty Smith is oxygen dependent, what current medicines she is taking, her allergies, the name of her physician and the hospital she normally goes to. After the winds die down, if AMR personnel go out to do wellness checks, they rst target those on their list. It’s important to have enough food and water on hand to be self-suf cient for ve days. The type of food is also important. “Lots of canned goods are high in fat and salt and could irritate already existing conditions such as cardiac,” House said. Products such as Ensure and Boost are full of vitamins and minerals, and there are many fruit and vegetable drinks that have a high shelf life. Snack foods such as unsalted pretzels and unsalted nuts are also good. Another smart move is to post emergency contacts on the refrigerator. Condos residents should organize a community meeting and formulate a plan for sustaining themselves with no electricity or running water. “Our team will come out and meet with them to help formulate a plan,” House said. “We’re experts in disaster management.” Such buildings should have a stash of food and generator capability, she said.

Cultural Committee Chairman Judi Standich was not present at Monday’s meeting, but afterward said, “It was a misunderstanding.

I’m more than disappointed at the colossal waste of time the roundabout has been.” He said a lot of words, time and money have been wasted that could have been avoided. Hoffmann said the roundabout proposal hasn’t taken a lot of time. She said a great deal of time and design effort has gone into an attempt to beautify the street. “We came up with a viable plan that would have required parking in the street, and that was not accepted,” she said, noting it’s been worth the effort. “We won’t think of doing that on Poinciana [a nearby street that is also in line for drainage improvements]. Beauti cation won’t be possible on streets with 90degree backout parking.” Commissioner Stuart Dodd said he’s also very disappointed in how this project has gone. “We’re trying to invest in drainage and swale improvements. The swale is a town swale. It’s not their car park [parking lot]. We need to consider what’s best for the town even if it upsets a few residents.” Commissioner Chris Vincent said it’s important to hear from the public, but he found some of their reaction quite a shock. If someone came to him and wanted to spend $800,000 in front of his house, he would be all for it. “If we vet everyone’s opinion, imagine what this town will look like. It will look like Swiss cheese,” he said. “We try to accommodate everyone, but we can’t,” said Mayor Roseann Minnet. “We can’t make everyone happy.” As a civil engineer, Flynn advised the commission to go with all the proposed landscaping or none of it. Resident Pat Pereira said she was “thrilled that they’re putting in all the trees.”ImprovementContinued from page 3Horse camp on trackCoconut Creek – Registration is ongoing for Summer Horse Camp at Tradewinds Park, 3600 W.

The major equipment, Klopp noted, had to be speci ed as LEED certi ed, the environmental standard under which the pier buildings are being built. Mayor Peggy Noland was the rst to protest the inclusion of minor appliances. “I am surprised we are spending money on this. Should this expense be put on us?” She questioned whether or not the city would be responsible for maintenance of the accessory equipment. “We don’t want that,” she said. Commissioners then argued the bene ts of letting the restaurant operator make decisions on accessory appliances. “How much do we want to invest to provide them with an economic foundation?” Commissioner Ben Preston asked. Commissioner Joe Miller said, “Is our investing in this equipment curtailing our ability to get the best vendor? We’re not restaurateurs.” Miller also urged staff to include an outdoor-seating area in the bid package and the board agreed. Klopp said the space adds 36 seats, almost doubling restaurant capacity. Vice Mayor Bill Ganz moved to accept the bid list as presented by staff with the exception of the minor equipment and scaled down to include just the core xtures. Also up for discussion, was operating hours of the restaurant. Originally, the specs were for a minimum nine-hour day. Commissioners changed that to 12 hours, with a 6 a.m. opening. Mayor Noland thought the leasee would opt for longer hours. “We should allow them to remain open. This restaurant is an absolute gold mine. Whoever comes here will know what they are doing … don’t tie their hands.” Commissioners agreed the restaurant could remain open longer than 12 hours a day if requested by the leasee. Also required of bidders will be a menu that is “familyfriendly” and is “reasonably priced.” The pier restoration and construction of the new entrance, restaurant, bait shop, second oor viewing deck and restrooms is slated for late this year.PierContinued from page 1 Taking the kids to the beach?Remember sun hats, sunscreen and lots of water!

Some possible solutions came from the evening that included suggestions that city of cials get a heads up before Code Red messages go to residents. One suggestion was to have telephone numbers that contain updated messages even if the response were, “There is no emergency.” Karta said 2,700 calls came into the county water plant. All of those calls heard nothing more than an employee’s voice mail. Residents wanting to keep up with emergency information should call the city or county that supplies them with water to update their telephone numbers. Karta said that Red Code alerts reached 43 percent of the residents. “That’s pretty poor,” he said. “We don’t have correct numbers.” Residents in Pompano Beach can sign up for email alerts from the city website, mypompanobeach.com. Fisher pointed out that Randy Brown, director of utilities received the Code Red four hours from the time of the discovery of the contaminated well. Karta added that at no time were residents in danger. The contamination had been found in a well. That was water that had not yet gone through the treatment center. Code RedContinued from page 15included in the Alliance’s advertising campaigns. Since the permit process changes were already in place Heidi Shafran, community development services department director, called it a “no-brainer” for Wilton Manors to take be a part of the Alliance. Before Wilton Manors 15 cities, including Pompano Beach, Deer eld Beach, Oakland Park, Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs and Tamarac all joined. So far 89 expedited building permits have been issued in Pompano, including one to the developers of the new Marriott hotel on Ocean Boulevard. Jeff Bruce, senior project manager for the hotel, said the expedited permitting process has been helpful but the city putting the whole process online has been even more signi cant. “The eplan [or electronic plan review] probably expedited the project more than anything else,” said Bruce. “It disseminates approvals right away.” It also simpli es one aspect that isn’t important to the project but one that Bruce still appreciates: reducing paperwork. “The level of drawing for a project like this is pretty cumbersome,” he said. But with documents being online for him and city of cials to review, lugging around giant architectural drawings and renderings to meetings is now, for the most part, a thing of the past. The Marriott, which Bruce says will be nished by June 2013, will be comprised of two buildings, an eight-story and a nine-story. Along with 219 rooms, the hotel will have conference space, a ball room, large lawn event deck, tness center and “all the amenities you would expect at a Marriot.” Bruce adds that the permitting process contributes to the perception that Pompano Beach of cials want and are encouraging development in their city. “I think the city is being accommodating. There are timing issues but the city has worked with us,” he said.PlatinumContinued from page 7

The Pelican 25 Friday, June 15, 2012 period June 8, incumbents Vice Mayor Tom Green and Commissioner Julie Carson and challengers Kimber White and Sal Torre will vie for the seats. Because Wilton Manors isn’t divided into districts, the two candidates with the highest number of votes will win the Nov. 6 election. Mayor Gary Resnick, with no opponent ling to run against him, was automatically re-elected to a third term. Resnick won his inaugural term as mayor in 2008 and was rst elected to the commission in 1998. Resnick thanked residents and said he could not be mayor without the support of city staff. “I like to think people in general are satis ed [with the job I’m doing].” Resnick may not have been eligible for another term if Wilton Manors residents hadn’t voted in favor of the January referendum that bypassed the provision in the county ethics code that prohibits elected of cials from lobbying. The county de nes a lobbyist as anyone, paid or unpaid, who seeks to in uence a public of cial or employee on behalf of a nonpublic entity. When county commissioners discussed the issue last year, Resnick was mentioned because he is a registered lobbyist, attorney and partner at GrayRobinson, PA, a Fort Lauderdale law rm. Resnick represents private and government clients in communications law and other issues. Sal Torre, who serves on the city’s budget review committee and was a part of the Wilton Drive Task force before it was disbanded, said he wants to focus on how the city can expand existing programs and facilities to bring in new revenue sources. Torre also said he wants to work with city staff to bring in new development. “It’s a very important thing for our future,” he said. Speci cally, Torre would like to see more commercial development along Andrews Avenue and Powerline Road. “Certain areas could have higher density.” Torre bought a house in Wilton Manors nine years ago and became a full-time city resident about four years ago. He works as a chef for Sysco Food Service. Visit www.pompanopelican.com. to read Wilton Manors candidate interviews. So far, according to his submitted treasurer’s report, Green has raised $4,075, including $1,000 of his own money, and says that since the report was submitted he has raised about $800 more. Green’s rst campaign donation came in March. So far he has spent $750 on a voting list, printing and a campaign event. Carson said she has made a $300 contribution to her campaign but hasn’t started any fundraising efforts yet. White and Torre also say they haven’t started raising money.

Big swords are out and aboutBy Michael d’OliveiraPELICAN STAFFBig swords and lots of them could go to a anglers this weekend if the weather holds and their skills are up to the challenge. RJ Boyle, of RJ Boyle Studios in Lighthouse Point, says a few clients have come up big in the swordfish division lately. “Over the last week we had four clients, from different parts of the country, we fished with and they were all pleased to catch a number of swordfish. So if you’re looking to catch a big sword and the weather allows, now would be a good time.” At least nine, including two that were 400 lbs. or better made it into the boat. “They were all able to take some meat home,” said Boyle. “Swordfish is considered good table fare and a premium item on any menu.” And, compared to storebought fish that’s been frozen and stored for a length of time before making it to the seafood isle, the anglers who caught their own meal got it as fresh as possible. Still though, they had to work for their dinner. One 375-lbs. sword, caught by Alex Lipworth using a split tail mullet as bait, was reeled in from a depth of 1600 ft – twice. “The crazy thing about this fish is we reeled the fish all the way to the surface and he saw the boat and he went all the way back down to 1600 feet,” said Boyle, who added that the struggle to bring the sword in took over three hours. Those looking for tips on bait, rigging or other fishingrelated issues can call RJ Boyle Studios at 954-4205001.RJ Boyle, left, and Alex Lipworth show off one of the day’s sword sh catches.

Junior Team Tennis is broken up into ve age groups, includes 200 participants and stretches from Boyton Beach to Fort Lauderdale, Turpie founded the league in 1992 with his wife, Jacquie Turpie, a 36-year tennis pro. “We provide a competitive match experience for juniors in a fun but friendly atmosphere,” said Tom, who added that he takes care of the administrative side of the league while his wife handles all things tennis-related. “It’s about sportsmanship and it’s about children having fun. We give out trophies [to the winners] but we want everyone to feel good about themselves. It’s a more nurturing way to come up through the game,” said Jacquie. Asked about his favorite professional tennis player,, Miller, TennisContinued from page 1Connor Orwan, 10, of Boca Raton. Madison Young, 9, of Fort Lauderdale. who lives in Lighthouse Point, said Rafael Nadal because “he hits a lot of topspin and he’s got good sportsmanship.” But despite the league’s focus on fostering good-natured competition among youth, those wanting to join have to be at a certain level. “The league is not for beginners. You’ve got to be able to serve and rally with some consistency,” said Tom. Miller has been playing since he was four and his mother, Susie Miller, says she’s glad to see him compete against other kids his own age. “It really works with his focus and concentration. I love watching him out there,” she said. For more, visit www. usptajrteamtennis.com or call 561-865-6810.Adam Gambello, 12, Fort Lauderdale
