2 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 By Michael dOliveiraPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors Call it the little building that could. In an online poll conducted by WLRN Public Radio and the Miami Herald, Wilton Manors Schuster Design Associates building, located on Northeast 26 Street, was named one of the top two buildings in Broward County. The building, which was designed in 1965 by architect Dan Duckham in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, beat out many other bigger and better well-known landmarks including the Bonnet House, Hyatt Regency Pier 66, Broward Center for the Performing Arts all in Fort Lauderdale and Oakland Parks Mai Kai restaurant. Only Fort Lauderdales Stranahan House got more votes. At rst, the voting was disputed by the Wilton Manors Historical Society. But Diane Cline, Historical Society president, said the matter has since been resolved. We had a worthy opponent. Its great that he was recognized, said Cline about Duckhams design. Its a fascinating building with a lot of character. Its been a long time coming. For Louis Shuster, president of Shuster Design and the buildings owner, Wilton Manors Schuster named one of Browards top buildings by WLRN See SHUSTER on page 19The Shuster Design Associates building on Northeast 26 Avenue was named one of the top two buildings in Broward County.

Sampson was with Florida Humane for two years until Shay Blonder of Boynton Beach adopted him. Hes got a very happy disposition. Hes just a lover, she said. I cant believe people didnt want him because of his age. Carol Ebert, president of the Florida Humane Society, has seen a lot of older dogs come and go since she founded the organization in 1993. Some say puppies are better but I would take an old dog any day. To me, theyre more loving and a lot of them are house trained, said Ebert. Before the Florida Humane Society opened its new facility, its old and young dogs and cats were mainly housed in private residences across South Florida. Building the new facility has allowed Ebert and her staff to help more animals Williams family. The Williams adopted Unicorn but couldnt stop there. They adopted Ethan, whose front limbs were amputated, a few months later. Eve Marie Williams said that because Florida Humane is a no-kill organization. It makes it easy for me to come here and not adopt them all. To adopt or volunteer at Florida Humane Society, visit www. oridahumanesociety. org or call 954-974-6152. Hours of operation are Thursday through Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. than ever before. This has been a life saver for us and many, many animals, she said.

4 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 New budget holding the line in Hillsboro BeachBy Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFHillsboro Beach Residents here will feel little nancial effect next scal year if a budget proposed by Severn Trent is accepted later this summer. The $4.8 million budget reduces the property tax millage from 3.8 mils per thousand to 3.39 and maintains other expenses at current levels. Tuesday, however, commissioners said they may add another sworn deputy to the police force after Police Chief Tom Nagy said the marine boat and beach ATV are manned only on weekends. Staf ng issues make it dif cult to provide beach and water patrol services, the chief said. Only nine of his of cers are trained in the use of the marine unit and ATV. One more of cer would make a dramatic increase in the use of the boat and ATV, he said. The rst reading and commission discussion of the budget will be held Sept. 13 at 5 p.m.By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: not exactly the quali cations citizens need to ll some important board vacancies here, but the dif culty in nding residents willing to serve may present dilemmas not unlike the John le Carre novel. One city advisory board, the Beauti cation Authority, is not functional because it has only one member rather than the required ve. The Unsafe Structures Board, a body that can levy penalties against property owners, has never met since it was enacted by ordinance in 2009. Any resident with an City sorely needs volunteers to ll board seatsinterest in beautifying the city can volunteer to sit on the Beauti cation Authority. Commissioners appoint one person from each of the citys four voting district and one atlarge member. The authority meets monthly on Mondays. No nancial disclosure is required. Selecting members of the Unsafe Structures Board is more dif cult. That board has nine members with speci c talents, i.e. an engineer, an architect, a general contractor, electrical contractor, lawyer, plumbing contractor, real estate appraiser, property manager and a person experienced in social problems. It meets as needed to hear appeals on unsafe structure citations, rule on the decision of the building of cial during an appeal or to deal with non compliance of an unsafe structure order. Financial disclosure is required. Since the board was created by ordinance in May of 2009, eight cases have been heard by the county Unsafe Structures Board. Planning and Development Services Director Jerry Ferguson said, It has been dif cult to nd willing volunteers who meet See BOARD on page 26

The Pelican 5 Friday, July 13, 2012 Choice wins Hillsboro contract with lower bid By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFHillsboro Beach Choice Environmental Services will become this citys waste hauler at a savings of over $96,000 a year. Choice offered the lowest price of the four companies vying for the contract: Waste Management, Southern Waste Services and Waste Services. Waste Management had served the community for at least the last 15 years, but came in with a price higher than the current contract prompting Commissioner Jim Lambert to say, It shocked me. I usually believe we should stay with a good vendor. Waste Managements price went from $143,000 annually to $211,000. Choice, represented by attorney Grant Smith, came in at $110,000 a year. The company is owned by Waste Management founder Wayne Huizenga and hauls waste for many cities including Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-By-TheSea, Miami Beach and Key Biscayne. Cost of the recycling program is 50 cents a living unit which adds another $12,000 to the contract. This cost can be offset by the money paid cities for recyclables by the Resource Recovery Center. Commissioner Dick Maggiore said he had called several cities now doing business with Choice and had gotten -star ratings. Mayor Dan Dodge said he also got high marks for Choice from its customers. We are obliged to provide our residents with the best service for the lowest cost, Maggiore said as the Choice contract was unanimously approved. Deerfield Beach The first company to file a site plan for the citys new Industrial 2 zoning was given commission approval this week to build a yard waste recycling facility. Sun Recycling will develop a two-acre parcel at 1811 S. Powerline Road as a recycling center for vegetation. Surrounding properties will be protected from any debris by 10-foot high fences, company representatives said. The yard waste facility replaces an earlier plan to put a metal shredding plant on the site. Commissioner Bill Ganz called it a great improvement and urged Sun to set Sun Recycling gets OK for yard waste facilitya benchmark there with its operation. Asked if the vegetation would create an odor, the Sun spokesperson said the material does not stay at the center long enough to decay. The material is processed and sold to sugar mills in the center of the state. SightingsA community calendar of Broward County.

While the stories sounded grim, two things were at play. First the month was June, a frightening time for shops to make it through this genuinely slow month in South Florida. And adding to the month of slow, the parking lot in front of the stores was under construction, making it less convenient for shoppers. Since we are a generation of convenience this makes us pretty ighty when we are out to get something. Today the lot is nally complete; it is July, and the shock of losing the snowbirds is ebbing just a bit. But something else was at playsomething known to only a small congregation at St. Martins Episcopal Church, located across the street from the shops. Some might call it Freakonomics, another chapter in the weird look at economics written by Steven D. Levitt. We were visiting this church on Sunday and as The Rev. Bernie Pecaro prepared to dismiss his ock, he had something else to say. He reminded those remaining in the pews to remember their neighbors at Harbor Village. He said he understood how dif cult it can be to park there, but they were neighbors. If you think one of these stores can supply you with goods, I ask that you patronize them as times are dif cult there, he said. [Not his exact words, but close as I found myself without a notebook and not at all prepared to write this comment.] But I was struck at this idea of outreach. While he did not ask them to proselytize the owners of the shops, he saw the need to pass a few bucks in their direction. Not charity, but sort of, If you are shopping for these items, why not shop there? [Again not his exact words.] I dont know how many people actually took the priests words to heart and followed through, but I did sense that the founder of Christianity might have brightened up at the idea. Father Pecaro was trying to send his parishioners into the heat and dust with no incentive other than a great breakfast, an old record, a coin exchange, a suit pressed, a dental visit, a slice of pizza or a six-pack prior to the afternoon shing trip. We hear many people proclaiming their piety without the good works that make the difference. But this pastor asked us for the works. He knew instinctively that shopping locally is critical. A few more shoppers at local shopping centers can make the difference between an owner paying his or her debts or not. I am not one to tell people in the pulpit what to do, but I applaud someone that had the insight to understand that all of us are part of the economic climate. Helping neighbors out is a worthy cause whether its on our street, in our of ce, in our schools or anywhere at all, no matter what or whom you worship. Its a feel-good thing. Make hurricane safety part of your summer readingFamily Disaster PlanThis website, mypompanobeach.org, is not exactly a novel, but its novel, and its fast reading. This website has answers about hurricanes and survival plans that have been generated by experts. You are not alone. There is no guesswork. This is where good hurricane plans are generated. If you ask: What about my pet? The telephone number is there. How much water? All gured for your entire family. Can I help my neighbor? That plan is included too! Heres the website everyone in South Florida should have memorized by now. So take a look. Today is not too late. We may not be able to say that tomorrow. Visit mypompanobeach.org. Once there, go to search and type in Hurricane Season. Here you will see a link, Emergency Management. Click onto this link, and you should see Weathering the storm together. On this page there are several helpful services, including Get a Plan. Following these instructions, families can design their own hurricane plans tailored to their speci c needs. This is the rst step in preparing for your family, pets and home in the event of a disaster. As residents of Florida, we may not be able to prevent disasters from occurring, but by planning ahead we can help save lives, property and reduce the time it takes for our communities to recover. After a disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach everyone right away. In some cases it may take three or more days for help to arrive. Your family disaster plan is the guide that will help to prepare your family to endure these dif cult times.In creating a disaster plan, it is important to carefully consider the needs of the people who live in your home. Another website to visit is FloridaDisaster.org with another set of safety suggestions for all of your family members, young, old, healthy or ill. You will be asked speci c questions about where you live, the people in your family and your pets. You should discuss your Family Disaster Plan as a group so everyone understands what to do in the event of a disaster. Also, be sure to carefully consider the different needs of each person in your household and make sure any special needs are included in your plan. Members of your household who might have special needs include babies, infants, small children, elderly persons and any persons with disabilities. Make a plan for a Meeting location if people in your family are separated Children have special needs due to their young age. The plan gives families suggestions to deal with this, like board games, crayons, puzzles, etc. Babies have very speci c needs. It is important to plan for your baby and its special needs before a disaster. Suggestions on how to form a neighborhood networks and discuss evacuation procedures and other community issues are part of this informative website. Storing drinking water is one of the most important things you can do before a disaster. In a disaster, water pipes may be broken or the water may become contaminated. To be ready, you should have at least a three-day supply of drinking water at your home. Plan to have at least one gallon of water for each person per day. We think you will be amazed at the information available at this and many other websites regarding hurricanes. Working out your hurricane plan may take some time, but its worth it. The information above is only part of important information you will receive. You will learn about your speci c evacuation route, important numbers to have on hand, including a list of insurance companies. Be responsible about yourself and your family.

Briefs By Anne SirenPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach Dr. John G. Sarris, a newcomer to Pompano Beach, has opened his office, Elite Smile Designs, at 2722 NE 1 St. But Dr. Sarris is hardly a newcomer to dentistry. His new office comes after what he calls great years in Delray Beach and prior to that, he practiced dentistry in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. A graduate of Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, where he earned his D.M.D., Dr. Sarris says he never stops his education in this field. He has completed seven cores of LVI Global Institute training that has enabled him to treat many symptoms associated with Temporomandibular Joint disorder, or TMJ, migraine headaches and neck and facial pain. Dr. Sarris has had success in this area by aligning a patients bite. Its a form of neuromuscular dentistry, or NMD, he says. And he believes that in the future, this will be the way all dentists will practice. Neuromuscular dentistry goes beyond the treatment of teeth. We treat the muscles of the head that control the jaw bone, Dr. Sarris adds. The jaw is hinged through muscles in the head. If a patients bite is misaligned, the muscles act accordingly Elite Smile Designs serves community offering general, cosmetic and neuromuscular procedures[Left] Sharon Preziose, dental assistant, has become a friendly face with patients. [Right] Dr. John G. Sarris takes a short break in his office to discuss the many aspects of Elite Smile Designs in Pompano Beach. to maintain the position by tightening up. That tightening process causes stress and fatigue on other facial muscles that can extend from the face to the neck, shoulders or back. With specialized computers, Dr. Sarris and his staff can locate tightness. The patients bite is measured through an electromyography, or EMG. We place electrodes on the head to measure the intensity of the muscles to see whether they are stressed, fatigued or relaxed, he says. An enthusiastic Dr. Sarris says that some patients come in with migraines that disappear after a jaw alignment, a procedure that is non-invasive and works in a way similar to a bite guard that the patient can remove and replace at will. Dr. Sarris is finding that many patients are experiencing relief through this adjustment. Some patients have been in pain for so long, they have adjusted to it, but after this procedure, they are very much aware of the absence of pain.More than TMJ and NMDToday, advances in cosmetic dentistry, have brought more patients into dental offices than ever before to find that perfect smile. When Dr. Sarris combines the effects of NMD with cosmetic dentistry, the patient gets a lot more than a new smile. We do not want to give them back the same alignment [in cosmetic dentistry]. We want them to have the new smile and a well-aligned jaw. In effect, realigning the jaw is like a face lift, he says. Using before an after photos, Dr. Sarris points out facial lines that disappeared with a correct alignment.What patients sayOne patient, who says she will never go anywhere else, calls Dr. Sarris the best dentist and nicest person ever. Besides checking up on her post treatment, this patient tells the story of her first visit with Dr. Sarris. I knew I had old fillings, so I made an appointment. Dr. Sarris kept asking me questions that were right on. He asked if I had headaches, she said. Her answer was that she had terrible migraines and had been seeing neurologists and other doctors for help. He asked me about shoulder pain. I said yes again. It was strange because I didnt think that this had anything to do with my teeth. But it did. Dr. Sarris designed an orthotic for her to wear, and she talks of the results. I wore the mouthpiece. Today, my headaches are 85 percent gone and my shoulder pain is non-existent. It was my teeth!See ELITE on page 9New leader at Zion LutheranDeer eld Beach Zion Lutheran School has named Dr. Phillippe Dupont as principal of its upper school.

By Phyllis J. NeubergerPELICAN STAFFThe Stuff The Bus campaign is an all out effort to get Broward businesses and residents to help stock the shelves of Tools for School free supply store with donated supplies for teachers from 166 Title One schools. Last year 130 schools bene ted from this program. 1,474 teachers took an average of $345 worth of supplies back to their classrooms. A total of $508,050 in supplies is the estimated help given to Broward schools in need. Hector Javier is ecstatic about his free store for teachers which is set up like a mini shopping center, lled with donated supplies to help kids in need of these supplies to succeed in school. Located at 2300 W. Copans Rd. Suite ve, the store is open speci c hours to teachers who shop by appointment. Im the only salaried person here, Javier says. But I have a lot of volunteers who are retired teachers. Other volunteers are putting in community service hours to help with incoming merchandise, shipping and stocking the shelves. This great free store is a major improvement from our former Fort Lauderdale store which was wiped out by Hurricane Wilma. According to Jorene Jameson, president of the Broward Education Foundation, the average teacher spends up to $1,000 each year of his or her own money to provide school supplies to needy students. She says, Our goal is to reduce that amount to zero by making sure Tools for Schools Broward is fully stocked year round so that teachers will never leave empty handed. Were getting a tremendously enthusiastic response from businesses, their employees and the general public. Everyone wants to help our children do well in school. Tools for School supply store helps teachers give needy students the tools they need to succeed She adds, Research indicates that children who have the basic supplies are able to complete homework, raise their test scores, improve their behavior and produce higher quality projects.

12 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 Advertise with The Pelican! By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFLauderdale-By-TheSea Town commissioners unanimously approved a $3.510 million contract with the Broward Sheriffs Of ce for police services in 20122013. Thats a $75,000, or 2 percent increase with no reduction in personnel. BSO had originally proposed a budget of $3.6 million, a 5 percent increase over the current year. Town Manager Connie Hoffmann negotiated for the lower amount. In a report to commissioners, Hoffmann said the increase is due to two factors. First, a number of BSO employees assigned to LBTS have upgraded their health insurance from single coverage to family coverage. BSO is absorbing that increased cost in the current year because it was not projected when the agreement was negotiated last year. The second factor is a 17 percent increase in the amount BSO must contribute to the Florida Retirement System for the special risk retirement plan (for sworn deputies and of cers.) The State of Florida Division of Retirement determines the cost each year after performing actuarial studies. The budget includes a reduction in salary expenses because a newly hired BSO deputy will be transferred in, and one with longer tenure transferred out, Hoffmann said. She had requested the deputy be transferred out for performance reasons.BSOs $3.6 million budget re ects slight increase954-783-8700!

The Pelican 13 Friday, July 13, 2012 This colorful depiction of Deerfields beach was chosen to be the official Deerfield Beach Art Festival poster this week by members of the Cultural Committee. The work of Swissborn artist Martin Gemperle was chosen over 21 other entries, the most ever according to committee chair Judi Standich. Gemperle receives a $500 prize. His image may also be used on Art Festival t-shirts and will be exhibited at the fest which is the last weekend in January. Gemperle started his career as a typesetter working with Albert Hollenstein who, in the 60s, introduced the Helvetica typeface. Later he studied drawing in Paris where he now lives and paints watercolors of landscapes and sea shores.

Cost of tree removal, $9,350, is borne by the city. The money will come from its Landscape Trust Fund. Tuesday, the commission awarded a $121,400 contract to Real Tree Trimming & Landscaping, Inc. to do the work scheduled for late summer. Two years ago, the Florida Department of Transportation surveyed the boulevard and said all the large trees in the median had to be removed.

The Pelican 15 Friday, July 13, 2012 By Michael dOliveiraPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors Three years ago city of cials unsuccessfully tried to partner with a private entity to turn the citys municipal parking lot into a mixed-use development. Now, the city is preparing to send out another proposal that involves a public/private partnership to develop the site. Were going to start fresh, said Heidi Shafran, community development services department director. The 2.3-acre site encompasses the old city hall, city parking lot, the old Rothes property and has 223 parking spaces. Shafran said the new proposal will require the winning bidder to develop a structure that has residential and retail space, at least 400 parking spots and a public gathering space with room to display public art. After those requirements are met, developers can propose various uses for the site from a hotel to a movie theater to an assisted living facility. Thats what theyre going to be evaluated on. We want them to make it attractive to us, said Shafran, who estimated the proposal would be sent out by the end of the summer. Theres no reason not to do this. Were motivated. The time is right. Commissioners are supportive of the idea of a public/private partnership. Commissioner Julie Carson said she would like to see something similar to the four-story parking garage in Deer eld Beach which is privately owned. The garage has 362 parking spaces, 16,350 sq. ft. of retail space and sits on one-acre of land. When I saw that I was encouraged we might be able to have something like that, said Carson, adding, Im in favor of what works and what the community likes. And with the city unable to make a large nancial investment in the site, Carson said a public/private partnership would be one way to develop the property. Commissioner Scott Newton also envisions a parking garage but wants to make sure enough space is set aside for public use. Its got to be equitable for City to take another shot at public/private partnership with city hall parking lot See PARKING LOT on page 18 See SIGHTINGS on page 17SightingsContinued from page 13 AmTrust Bank, 3600 W.

16 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 : angled parking and a bikeway/sidewalk was removed as well as arched signage across Commercial Boulevard. If midblock crosswalks are allowed, Johnson said, crosswalks will be removed at the corners of Tradewinds and Seagrape. Extensive landscaping with a tropical theme will be featured at entrances and exits to the quadrants. Recon guring the parking areas results in a loss of 26 parking spaces, from 131 to 105. The changes allow room for pedestrian plazas, outdoor dining, landscaping and signage. Parking in the shopping centers will be at a 45-degree angle rather than 60 degrees, with no curb stops. Added landscaping will screen parking from promenades. When you cross over the bridge and enter the town, [the feeling is] you have entered a beachy, tropical oasis, Johnson said. A ush of coconut palms in the middle of the road creates a beachy feel as you enter, and single coconut palms will be planted across the retail frontage. Plans call for keeping as many Royal Palms as possible. Silver buttonwoods and thatch palms, among many others, will be added, along with hardy native ground covers and grasses as accents. Each quadrant entryway will feature a theme sculpture by artist Laura Fisher-Huck, titled Queen Parrot Fish Promenade, Squid Row, Turtle Tang Lane and Sting Ray Way. The aluminum, painted sculptures will be lighted at night. Each will have an educational narrative, so visitors can linger and learn, Johnson said. Street SignsEntry signs will feature a 13 by16-ft. Fisher-Huck sculpture with sh and turtle motif. Resident John Oughton said, Its a great project, but he suggested planting trees other than coconut palms. We have a signi cant problem with white ies on coconut palms. Its expensive to treat and hard to clean. Cindy Geesey said having no curb stops at the parking places concerns her, with the number of senior drivers in the area. And she asked for a pelican in the entry signage sculpture. Dennis Ritchie questioned whether the sculpture could withstand hurricane winds. Johnson said a structural engineer will make sure the sculpture can meet windload calculations before its built. Commissioner Mark Brown said that while he liked the plans, his biggest concern was the entryway sign. He said the sculpture is beautiful artwork, but you want to take your time to look at it. It doesnt accomplish the wow factor, Brown added. I dont think it prominently enough says Im in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. Brown suggested considering a different entryway feature. He also was surprised not to see a pelican in the sculpture since the new town logo features a pelican. Can you throw a pelican in? he asked. Its a little weird to put a pelican on there with all those sh, Vice Mayor Scot Sasser quipped. Commissioner Stuart Dodd said he thinks a crosswalk is needed at East Tradewinds. If you dont provide a walkway at the right place, pedestrians will make one, he said. Sasser said the artwork was fabulous, but he wasnt sure he liked the sculpture at the town entryway. More work should be done on the entry, he said, and some sort of signage is needed at the crosswalks. Mayor Roseann Minnet said she thought the sculpture was incredible, and with lighting it will look fabulous. It brings the reef to Commercial Boulevard. She was concerned about maintenance and whether it would hold up in a hurricane. I dont want to leave the town with a maintenance nightmare, Minnet said. The commission also selected lighting with a nautical theme and a modern twist. And they agreed on beachside furnishings, including Adirondeck chairs and whimsical bike racks. BoulevardContinued from page 1 Plans for East Commercial Boulevard between A1A and the beach allow for mid-block walkways, lush landscaping and a recon guration of parking. The $1.91 million design is intended to enhance the shopping/commercial part of the tourist town. [Right] In case the ocean breezes dont do it, local street signs with marine gures are reminders to residents and tourists that the ocean is a major attraction in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.

It depends on what theyre asking for. Said Commissioner Ted Galatis, I dont like giving up city-owned property, but in some circumstances it can work as long as its fair to the taxpayer and the developer. We need parking along Wilton Drive desperately. Originally, 12 companies showed interest in the partnership but only two, Three Palms Land Development and Gables Residential, submitted of cial bids. And only Gables bid was accepted as meeting all the citys requirements. Gables owns and operates Wilton Park, located across the street from the municipal lot, a mixed-use complex that includes 145 residential rental units and 19,000 sq. ft. of commercial space. Of cials wanted to tie the public/private development to the application for a federal government grant that would have allowed the city to take over and transform Wilton Drive into two-lanes. But with its grant bid unsuccessful, the city walked away from Gables proposal a $15 million mixed-use development with 120 residential rental units, 5,000 sq. ft. of retail space, 4,000 sq. ft. of civic space, a public plaza and a ve story parking garage with 175 spaces for city use and 150 to 160 spaces for residential use. William Meisel, of Three Palms, said his company was not interested in the project. Joseph G. Wilber, Gables senior vice president of investments, said his company is still interested in pursuing a public/private partnership.

The Pelican 19 Friday, July 13, 2012 time coming. For 20 years I have been eyeing this building. Every time I passed by it, I kind of got a pang because it was so extraordinary. The architecture just seemed to lend itself to a design-type building, said Shuster. I was the rst person here with my Realtor the morning after the for sale sign went up. First to put a bid on the property. But rather than give the interior a modern update once he owned it, Shuster restored everything to its mid-century roots right down to the ofce furniture. We renovated it and brought it back to its original state. Structurally I changed nothing but everything worked for my company, said Shuster. It just lays out perfectly. The online contest came about after the American Institute of Architects only chose one Broward building, the municipal parking garage in Fort Lauderdale, in a list of Floridas architectural standouts. Soon after, the staff at WLRN and The Herald were working to correct the injustice and recognize some of Browards other landmarks. The ideas always been to recognize in Broward County that there are historical and architectural gems that the list missed, said Dan Grech, radio news director at WLRN and The Herald. We knew people in Broward love where they live and the buildings that surround them. Before Shuster purchased the building in 2006, it was the Robinson Beauty School and later became the administrative of ces of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. In 2007, it was named Building of the Year by the Historical Society. I used to go there to have my hair done when we moved here, said Cline. Grech said a pro le of Stranahan House and Shuster would air on WLRN soon.

Theres a serious need for this kind of amenity in the community. Were going to ll that need in the marketplace, said Kevin Urgo, principal at Urgo Hotels, which is developing the hotel. There are opportunities for gorgeous outdoor areas leading right out to the sand. Pompanos beaches are spectacular. Urgo said Marriott chose Pompano because it views the city as ripe for growth and development and an emerging marketplace between Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale. Once completed the hotel will be situated about halfway between the Marriotts in Boca and Fort Lauderdale. Were just very excited to be part of the community. We believe in Pompano, said Urgo. Ric Green, president/CEO of the Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce, is also excited because of what the hotel will bring to the city. We certainly need more hotel rooms. We have so many wonderful things around us, but we dont have the number of hotel rooms we need to support them, said Green. In addition to helping Pompanos tourism industry by accommodating more visitors, the hotels banquet and meeting space will bene t local events and groups. Green said there are a lot of good venues located outside of the city but having additional meeting space and banquet facilities within the city limits will be good for Pompano. To have a big party, if Galuppis or the Elks Club is busy theres not a lot left, he said. We dont have an existing hotel that also has banquet facilities. So far, both developers and city of cials are pleased with the relationship. This is a full Marriott resort which is big time for Pompano, said Mayor Lamar Fisher. The city commission worked very hard to accommodate them to build this Marriott. This is going to be such a feather in our cap. Bruce and Urgo praised Pompano for working with them to build the hotel, which has bene tted from the citys expedited permitting process. The city is being accommodating. There are timing issues but the city has worked with us, said Bruce. The streamlined process was created to reduce the permitting time involved for economically signi cant projects. For its permitting process, Pompano has been recognized as a Platinum City by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance. The Platinum Cities program was started to encourage businesses to relocate to Broward County. Wilton Manors, Oakland Park and Deer eld Beach are also Platinum Cities.

The city has drawn tougher rules for both bidders and inspectors working with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, or NSP, that brings homes up to living standards. In addition, the staff is giving each contract closer scrutiny, Assistant City Manager Keven Klopp told the commission Tuesday. We have problems in this program with the work that has been done, Commissioner Ben Preston said. I have had multiple calls about the quality of the work. Under the NSP, homeowners can apply for up to $50,000 to make home repairs. Klopp said as a result of rehab work that did not stand the test of time, new procedures have been put in place.

24 The Pelican Friday, July 13, 2012 Emergency Manager. We have only one mission. We are here to protect and save lives. Thats why they call us public servants. Spill stands in the Emergency Operations Center, or EOC, the building that will become the heart of the city when the next hurricane strikes. Here full communications take place on a 24-hour basis among BSO, re rescue, public works and every other municipal department, and here each department is assigned a responsibility. Its a bustling city within four walls. A white board serves as a message center. Each department head has a computer that feeds updated information from county and state sources and the main room has a large television so those inside can keep up with news. Suppose a water main breaks, says Sandra King, the citys spokesperson. Its up to me to get that information out to the newspapers, radio and television personnel. King comes to the EOC equipped with cell and satellite phones as backups to the landlines in the headquarters. Ham radio operators also join the crew for communication services. King isnt the only one who needs to know about the water main break. Public works needs to be noti ed to start the repairs. If a backhoe is needed someone who has been training for months sets out to nd one either from the city or from a private company that has been contracted to be ready with a backhoe. When we get a hurricane warning, we do not have any catch-up time, says Spill. Within the EOC there is a bunk room where the emergency team sleeps. They arrive at the onset of the watch with a three-day supply of food and liquids. Families of employees are not allowed at the EOC. In addition to computers, the EOC has a large television where those inside can keep up with news. Meanwhile EOC inhabitants are being fed updates from county and state sources. As work continues within the EOC, some things stop on the streets when sustained winds hit 50 mph. Fire and police vehicles are moved off the barrier island if the storms direction and speed indicate a storm surge and people are asked to evacuate. For Spill, the evacuation order is a life/death decision. To those who do not evacuate, Spill says, You should not be there. You should have evacuated when the order came through. Fire Rescue Division Chief Michael Hohl dittos that statement and recalls that the surge waters of Hurricane Katrina cleared the land of homes along the Gulf Coast. A surge could happen here as well. The power of water is very impressive. Were trying to keep you safe, Hohl says. Nobodys going to be able to get to you after the storm. Dont let this happen to you. Heed the warnings. Be prepared. Have three days of food and water on hand. Even if a building withstands the winds and surge, those living in coastal condominiums will nd themselves without electricity, which means no elevators, no refrigeration and no access to water or food. There will be an endless supply of emergencies, Hohl said. No one will knock on your door with water. Imagine 10,000 people in that situation. More storm advice came from Bill Herrmann, utility eld superintendent, who refers to the rst hour after the storm as the Golden Hour. Thats when we are in triage trying to locate utility problems. We are all out trying to check the system. Please stay home. Another part of this EOC scenario has to do with economics. Its expensive, very expensive to host a hurricane. Hurricane Wilmas costs totaled $10.7 million. Thats why there are accountants right in the middle of everything, documenting employee hours, rentals, food costs, clean-up costs and anything at all that could be reimbursed by FEMA. This week that careful documenting paid off with a FEMA check in the amount of $10.4 million. The remaining $300,000 is still being audited. But even money can become secondary to life. Spill shakes her head at the amount of complacency regarding hurricanes. People who still need to put together a plan can visit mypompanobeach.org, and seek hurricane season under Select a Department to download a plan, access more information, including important telephone numbers and have a better chance to improve their survival odds. EOCContinued from page 1 Above The vacuous-looking EOC headquarters on any day could be a room full of experts determined to watch, track and respond to any emergency brought about on the winds of a hurricane. Dozens of public employees have become trained to handle emergencies, run the city and respond to the needs of citizens. Their biggest concerns are that too many people are complacent when it comes to hurricane preparedness. Not exactly a ve-star residence, but few people expect to get a lot of sleep on these bunk beds that will accommodate city employees who will call this area home for the duration of any and all hurricanes that may hit the area this season.

The Pelican 25 Friday, July 13, 2012 Mayor Peggy Noland, who questioned workmanship on some NSP repairs years ago said, We did have shabby work. Now contractors and inspectors need to know we wont accept less. Noland said she is also skeptical of change orders that drive the price of the project up. The matter was discussed Tuesday as the commission was asked to grant two homeowners funding above the $50,000 limit. In one case, contractors discovered more work had to be done to make the home livable. In the other, the homeowner wanted the second lowest bidder to get a contract to replace her air conditioner. The board decided to grant the first request and to reject the second and hold the low bidder to his obligations. Last year, the citys Community Development Department was phased out and Senior Services Director Donna DeFronzo and Klopp given oversight of the department. The day-to-day operation was outsourced to a private company. ContractorsContinued from page 21 SightingsContinued from page 21 See SIGHTINGS on page 26 12:15 p.m. at Galuppis, 1103 N.

2 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 By Michael d’OliveiraPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors – Call it ‘the little building that could.’ In an online poll conducted by WLRN Public Radio and the Miami Herald Wilton Manors’ Schuster Design Associates building, located on Northeast 26 Street, was named one of the top two buildings in Broward County. The building, which was designed in 1965 by architect Dan Duckham in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, beat out many other bigger and better well-known landmarks including the Bonnet House, Hyatt Regency Pier 66, Broward Center for the Performing Arts – all in Fort Lauderdale – and Oakland Park’s Mai Kai restaurant. Only Fort Lauderdale’s Stranahan House got more votes. At rst, the voting was disputed by the Wilton Manors Historical Society. But Diane Cline, Historical Society president, said the matter has since been resolved. “We had a worthy opponent. It’s great that he was recognized,” said Cline about Duckham’s design. “It’s a fascinating building with a lot of character. It’s been a long time coming.” For Louis Shuster, president of Shuster Design and the building’s owner, Wilton Manors’ Schuster named one of Broward’s top buildings by WLRN See SHUSTER on page 19The Shuster Design Associates building on Northeast 26 Avenue was named one of the top two buildings in Broward County.

Sampson was with Florida Humane for two years until Shay Blonder of Boynton Beach adopted him. “He’s got a very happy disposition. He’s just a lover,” she said. “I can’t believe people didn’t want him because of his age.” Carol Ebert, president of the Florida Humane Society, has seen a lot of older dogs come and go since she founded the organization in 1993. “Some say puppies are better but I would take an old dog any day. To me, they’re more loving and a lot of them are house trained,” said Ebert. Before the Florida Humane Society opened its new facility, its old and young dogs and cats were mainly housed in private residences across South Florida. Building the new facility has allowed Ebert and her staff to help more animals Williams family. The Williams’ adopted Unicorn but couldn’t stop there.

4 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 New budget holding the line in Hillsboro BeachBy Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFHillsboro Beach Residents here will feel little nancial effect next scal year if a budget proposed by Severn Trent is accepted later this summer. The $4.8 million budget reduces the property tax millage from 3.8 mils per thousand to 3.39 and maintains other expenses at current levels. Tuesday, however, commissioners said they may add another sworn deputy to the police force after Police Chief Tom Nagy said the marine boat and beach ATV are manned only on weekends. Staf ng issues make it dif cult to provide beach and water patrol services, the chief said. Only nine of his of cers are trained in the use of the marine unit and ATV. One more of cer “would make a dramatic increase in the use of the boat and ATV,” he said. The rst reading and commission discussion of the budget will be held Sept. 13 at 5 p.m.By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach – “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy:” not exactly the quali cations citizens need to ll some important board vacancies here, but the dif culty in nding residents willing to serve may present dilemmas not unlike the John le Carre novel. One city advisory board, the Beauti cation Authority, is not functional because it has only one member rather than the required ve. The Unsafe Structures Board, a body that can levy penalties against property owners, has never met since it was enacted by ordinance in 2009. Any resident with an City sorely needs volunteers to ll board seatsinterest in beautifying the city can volunteer to sit on the Beauti cation Authority. Commissioners appoint one person from each of the city’s four voting district and one atlarge member. The authority meets monthly on Mondays. No nancial disclosure is required. Selecting members of the Unsafe Structures Board is more dif cult. That board has nine members with speci c talents, i.e. an engineer, an architect, a general contractor, electrical contractor, lawyer, plumbing contractor, real estate appraiser, property manager and a person experienced in social problems. It meets as needed to hear appeals on unsafe structure citations, rule on the decision of the building of cial during an appeal or to deal with non compliance of an unsafe structure order. Financial disclosure is required. Since the board was created by ordinance in May of 2009, eight cases have been heard by the county Unsafe Structures Board.

The Pelican 5 Friday, July 13, 2012 Choice wins Hillsboro contract with lower bid By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFHillsboro Beach – Choice Environmental Services will become this city’s waste hauler at a savings of over $96,000 a year. Choice offered the lowest price of the four companies vying for the contract: Waste Management, Southern Waste Services and Waste Services. Waste Management had served the community for at least the last 15 years, but came in with a price higher than the current contract prompting Commissioner Jim Lambert to say, “It shocked me. I usually believe we should stay with a good vendor.” Waste Management’s price went from $143,000 annually to $211,000. Choice, represented by attorney Grant Smith, came in at $110,000 a year. The company is owned by Waste Management founder Wayne Huizenga and hauls waste for many cities including Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-By-TheSea, Miami Beach and Key Biscayne. Cost of the recycling program is 50 cents a living unit which adds another $12,000 to the contract. This cost can be offset by the money paid cities for recyclables by the Resource Recovery Center. Commissioner Dick Maggiore said he had called several cities now doing business with Choice and had gotten “5-star ratings.” Mayor Dan Dodge said he also got high marks for Choice from its customers. “We are obliged to provide our residents with the best service for the lowest cost,” Maggiore said as the Choice contract was unanimously approved. Deerfield Beach – The first company to file a site plan for the city’s new Industrial – 2 zoning was given commission approval this week to build a yard waste recycling facility. Sun Recycling will develop a two-acre parcel at 1811 S. Powerline Road as a recycling center for vegetation.

While the stories sounded grim, two things were at play. First the month was June, a frightening time for shops to make it through this genuinely slow month in South Florida. And adding to the month of slow, the parking lot in front of the stores was under construction, making it less convenient for shoppers. Since we are a generation of convenience this makes us pretty ighty when we are out to get something. Today the lot is nally complete; it is July, and the shock of losing the snowbirds is ebbing just a bit. But something else was at play—something known to only a small congregation at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, located across the street from the shops. Some might call it “Freakonomics,” another chapter in the weird look at economics written by Steven D. Levitt. We were visiting this church on Sunday and as The Rev. Bernie Pecaro prepared to dismiss his ock, he had something else to say. He reminded those remaining in the pews to remember their neighbors at Harbor Village. He said he understood how dif cult it can be to park there, but they were neighbors. “If you think one of these stores can supply you with goods, I ask that you patronize them as times are dif cult there,” he said. [Not his exact words, but close as I found myself without a notebook and not at all prepared to write this comment.] But I was struck at this idea of outreach. While he did not ask them to proselytize the owners of the shops, he saw the need to pass a few bucks in their direction. Not charity, but sort of, “If you are shopping for these items, why not shop there?” [Again not his exact words.] I don’t know how many people actually took the priest’s words to heart and followed through, but I did sense that the founder of Christianity might have brightened up at the idea. Father Pecaro was trying to send his parishioners into the heat and dust with no incentive other than a great breakfast, an old record, a coin exchange, a suit pressed, a dental visit, a slice of pizza or a six-pack prior to the afternoon shing trip. We hear many people proclaiming their piety without the good works that make the difference. But this pastor asked us for the works. He knew instinctively that shopping locally is critical. A few more shoppers at local shopping centers can make the difference between an owner paying his or her debts or not. I am not one to tell people in the pulpit what to do, but I applaud someone that had the insight to understand that all of us are part of the economic climate. Helping neighbors out is a worthy cause whether it’s on our street, in our of ce, in our schools or anywhere at all, no matter what or whom you worship. It’s a ‘feel-good’ thing. Make hurricane safety part of your summer readingFamily Disaster PlanThis website, mypompanobeach.org, is not exactly a novel, but it’s novel, and it’s fast reading. This website has answers about hurricanes and survival plans that have been generated by experts. You are not alone. There is no guesswork. This is where good hurricane plans are generated. If you ask: What about my pet? The telephone number is there. How much water? All gured for your entire family. Can I help my neighbor? That plan is included too! Here’s the website everyone in South Florida should have memorized by now. So take a look. Today is not too late. We may not be able to say that tomorrow. Visit mypompanobeach.org. Once there, go to “search” and type in “Hurricane Season.” Here you will see a link, “Emergency Management.” Click onto this link, and you should see “Weathering the storm together.” On this page there are several helpful services, including “Get a Plan.” Following these instructions, families can design their own hurricane plans tailored to their speci c needs. This is the rst step in preparing for your family, pets and home in the event of a disaster. As residents of Florida, we may not be able to prevent disasters from occurring, but by planning ahead we can help save lives, property and reduce the time it takes for our communities to recover. After a disaster, emergency workers may not be able to reach everyone right away. In some cases it may take three or more days for help to arrive. Your family disaster plan is the guide that will help to prepare your family to endure these dif cult times.In creating a disaster plan, it is important to carefully consider the needs of the people who live in your home. Another website to visit is FloridaDisaster.org with another set of safety suggestions for all of your family members, young, old, healthy or ill. You will be asked speci c questions about where you live, the people in your family and your pets. You should discuss your Family Disaster Plan as a group so everyone understands what to do in the event of a disaster. Also, be sure to carefully consider the different needs of each person in your household and make sure any special needs are included in your plan. Members of your household who might have special needs include babies, infants, small children, elderly persons and any persons with disabilities. Make a plan for a “Meeting location” if people in your family are separated Children have special needs due to their young age. The plan gives families suggestions to deal with this, like board games, crayons, puzzles, etc. Babies have very speci c needs. It is important to plan for your baby and its special needs before a disaster. Suggestions on how to form a neighborhood networks and discuss evacuation procedures and other community issues are part of this informative website. Storing drinking water is one of the most important things you can do before a disaster. In a disaster, water pipes may be broken or the water may become contaminated. To be ready, you should have at least a three-day supply of drinking water at your home. Plan to have at least one gallon of water for each person per day. We think you will be amazed at the information available at this and many other websites regarding hurricanes. Working out your hurricane plan may take some time, but it’s worth it. The information above is only part of important information you will receive. You will learn about your speci c evacuation route, important numbers to have on hand, including a list of insurance companies. Be responsible about yourself and your family.

Briefs By Anne SirenPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach Dr. John G. Sarris, a newcomer to Pompano Beach, has opened his office, Elite Smile Designs, at 2722 NE 1 St. But Dr. Sarris is hardly a newcomer to dentistry. His new office comes after what he calls “10 great years in Delray Beach” and prior to that, he practiced dentistry in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. A graduate of Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, where he earned his D.M.D., Dr. Sarris says he never stops his education in this field. He has completed seven cores of LVI Global Institute training that has enabled him to treat many symptoms associated with Temporomandibular Joint disorder, or TMJ, migraine headaches and neck and facial pain. Dr. Sarris has had success in this area by aligning a patient’s bite. “It’s a form of neuromuscular dentistry, or NMD,” he says. And he believes that in the future, this will be the way all dentists will practice. Neuromuscular dentistry goes beyond the treatment of teeth. “We treat the muscles of the head that control the jaw bone,” Dr. Sarris adds. The jaw is hinged through muscles in the head. If a patient’s bite is “misaligned,” the muscles act accordingly Elite Smile Designs serves community offering general, cosmetic and neuromuscular procedures[Left] Sharon Preziose, dental assistant, has become a friendly face with patients. [Right] Dr. John G. Sarris takes a short break in his office to discuss the many aspects of Elite Smile Designs in Pompano Beach. to maintain the position by tightening up. That tightening process causes stress and fatigue on other facial muscles that can extend from the face to the neck, shoulders or back. With specialized computers, Dr. Sarris and his staff can locate tightness. “The patient’s bite is measured through an electromyography, or EMG. We place electrodes on the head to measure the intensity of the muscles to see whether they are stressed, fatigued or relaxed,” he says. An enthusiastic Dr. Sarris says that some patients come in with migraines that disappear after a jaw alignment, a procedure that is non-invasive and works in a way similar to a bite guard that the patient can remove and replace at will. Dr. Sarris is finding that many patients are experiencing relief through this adjustment. “Some patients have been in pain for so long, they have adjusted to it, but after this procedure, they are very much aware of the absence of pain.”More than TMJ and NMDToday, advances in cosmetic dentistry, have brought more patients into dental offices than ever before to find that perfect smile. When Dr. Sarris combines the effects of NMD with cosmetic dentistry, the patient gets a lot more than a new smile. “We do not want to give them back the same alignment [in cosmetic dentistry]. We want them to have the new smile and a well-aligned jaw. In effect, realigning the jaw is like a face lift,” he says. Using ‘before’ an ‘after’ photos, Dr. Sarris points out facial lines that disappeared with a correct alignment.What patients sayOne patient, who says she will never go anywhere else, calls Dr. Sarris the “best dentist and nicest person ever.” Besides checking up on her post treatment, this patient tells the story of her first visit with Dr. Sarris. “I knew I had old fillings, so I made an appointment. Dr. Sarris kept asking me questions that were right on. He asked if I had headaches,” she said. Her answer was that she had terrible migraines and had been seeing neurologists and other doctors for help. “He asked me about shoulder pain. I said yes again. It was strange because I didn’t think that this had anything to do with my teeth.” But it did. Dr. Sarris designed an orthotic for her to wear, and she talks of the results. “I wore the mouthpiece. Today, my headaches are 85 percent gone and my shoulder pain is non-existent. It was my teeth!”See ELITE on page 9New leader at Zion LutheranDeer eld Beach – Zion Lutheran School has named Dr. Phillippe Dupont as principal of its upper school.

By Phyllis J. NeubergerPELICAN STAFFThe Stuff The Bus campaign is an all out effort to get Broward businesses and residents to help stock the shelves of Tools for School free supply store with donated supplies for teachers from 166 Title One schools. Last year 130 schools bene ted from this program. 1,474 teachers took an average of $345 worth of supplies back to their classrooms. A total of $508,050 in supplies is the estimated help given to Broward schools in need. Hector Javier is ecstatic about his free store for teachers which is set up like a mini shopping center, lled with donated supplies to help kids in need of these supplies to succeed in school. Located at 2300 W. Copans Rd. Suite ve, the store is open speci c hours to teachers who shop by appointment. “I’m the only salaried person here,” Javier says. “But I have a lot of volunteers who are retired teachers. Other volunteers are putting in community service hours to help with incoming merchandise, shipping and stocking the shelves. This great free store is a major improvement from our former Fort Lauderdale store which was wiped out by Hurricane Wilma.” According to Jorene Jameson, president of the Broward Education Foundation, the average teacher spends up to $1,000 each year of his or her own money to provide school supplies to needy students. She says, “Our goal is to reduce that amount to zero by making sure Tools for Schools Broward is fully stocked year ‘round so that teachers will never leave empty handed. We’re getting a tremendously enthusiastic response from businesses, their employees and the general public. Everyone wants to help our children do well in school. ”Tools for School supply store helps teachers give needy students the tools they need to succeed She adds, “Research indicates that children who have the basic supplies are able to complete homework, raise their test scores, improve their behavior and produce higher quality projects. Everyone wins—the child, the school, the county and the country.” Mari-Lee Baxter, program coordinator for the foundation heads up the Stuff the Bus Campaign. She says, “To celebrate the opening of this wonderful new center we had a “Dash for Supplies” promotion. The rst two teachers who lled their carts that day got to keep their supplies and take them back to the classroom. It was a thrill to see the faces of the children when they saw the pencils, pens, notebooks, backpacks, art supplies and more they would soon put to use.” She adds, “Our national support comes from the home base of See STUFF THE BUS on page 20Duffy’s Family Night supports the Focal PointDeer eld Beach – Duffy’s 2nd annual Family Night Tuesday, July 31 bene ts the NE Focal Point CASA, Inc., a fundraising organization for the Deer eld Beach facility that serves, children, senior citizens and Alzheimer’s patients.

By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFLauderdale-By-TheSea – Town commissioners unanimously approved a $3.510 million contract with the Broward Sheriff’s Of ce for police services in 20122013. That’s a $75,000, or 2 percent increase with no reduction in personnel. BSO had originally proposed a budget of $3.6 million, a 5 percent increase over the current year. Town Manager Connie Hoffmann negotiated for the lower amount. In a report to commissioners, Hoffmann said the increase is due to two factors. First, a number of BSO employees assigned to LBTS have upgraded their health insurance from single coverage to family coverage. BSO is absorbing that increased cost in the current year because it was not projected when the agreement was negotiated last year. The second factor is a 17 percent increase in the amount BSO must contribute to the Florida Retirement System for the special risk retirement plan (for sworn deputies and of cers.) The State of Florida Division of Retirement determines the cost each year after performing actuarial studies. The budget includes a reduction in salary expenses because a newly hired BSO deputy will be transferred in, and one with longer tenure transferred out, Hoffmann said. She had requested the deputy be transferred out for performance reasons.BSO’s $3.6 million budget re ects slight increase954-783-8700!

The Pelican 15 Friday, July 13, 2012 By Michael d’OliveiraPELICAN STAFFWilton Manors – Three years ago city of cials unsuccessfully tried to partner with a private entity to turn the city’s municipal parking lot into a mixed-use development. Now, the city is preparing to send out another proposal that involves a public/private partnership to develop the site. “We’re going to start fresh,” said Heidi Shafran, community development services department director. The 2.3-acre site encompasses the old city hall, city parking lot, the old Rothe’s property and has 223 parking spaces. Shafran said the new proposal will require the winning bidder to develop a structure that has residential and retail space, at least 400 parking spots and a public gathering space with room to display public art. After those requirements are met, developers can propose various uses for the site – from a hotel to a movie theater to an assisted living facility. “That’s what they’re going to be evaluated on. We want them to make it attractive to us,” said Shafran, who estimated the proposal would be sent out by the end of the summer. “There’s no reason not to do this. We’re motivated. The time is right.” Commissioners are supportive of the idea of a public/private partnership. Commissioner Julie Carson said she would like to see something similar to the four-story parking garage in Deer eld Beach which is privately owned. The garage has 362 parking spaces, 16,350 sq. ft. of retail space and sits on one-acre of land. “When I saw that I was encouraged we might be able to have something like that,” said Carson, adding, “I’m in favor of what works and what the community likes.” And with the city unable to make a large nancial investment in the site, Carson said a public/private partnership would be one way to develop the property. Commissioner Scott Newton also envisions a parking garage but wants to make sure enough space is set aside for public use. “It’s got to be equitable for City to take another shot at public/private partnership with city hall parking lot See PARKING LOT on page 18 See SIGHTINGS on page 17SightingsContinued from page 13 AmTrust Bank, 3600 W.

16 The PelicanFriday, July 13, 2012 : angled parking and a bikeway/sidewalk was removed as well as arched signage across Commercial Boulevard. If midblock crosswalks are allowed, Johnson said, crosswalks will be removed at the corners of Tradewinds and Seagrape. Extensive landscaping with a tropical theme will be featured at entrances and exits to the quadrants. Recon guring the parking areas results in a loss of 26 parking spaces, from 131 to 105. The changes allow room for pedestrian plazas, outdoor dining, landscaping and signage. Parking in the shopping centers will be at a 45-degree angle rather than 60 degrees, with no curb stops. Added landscaping will screen parking from promenades. “When you cross over the bridge and enter the town, [the feeling is] you have entered a beachy, tropical oasis,” Johnson said. “A ush of coconut palms in the middle of the road creates a beachy feel as you enter, and single coconut palms will be planted across the retail frontage.” Plans call for keeping as many Royal Palms as possible. Silver buttonwoods and thatch palms, among many others, will be added, along with hardy native ground covers and grasses as accents. Each quadrant entryway will feature a theme sculpture by artist Laura Fisher-Huck, titled Queen Parrot Fish Promenade, Squid Row, Turtle Tang Lane and Sting Ray Way. The aluminum, painted sculptures will be lighted at night. Each will have an educational narrative, so visitors can linger and learn, Johnson said. Street SignsEntry signs will feature a 13 by16-ft. Fisher-Huck sculpture with sh and turtle motif. Resident John Oughton said, “It’s a great project,” but he suggested planting trees other than coconut palms. “We have a signi cant problem with white ies on coconut palms. It’s expensive to treat and hard to clean.” Cindy Geesey said having no curb stops at the parking places concerns her, with the number of senior drivers in the area. And she asked for a pelican in the entry signage sculpture. Dennis Ritchie questioned whether the sculpture could withstand hurricane winds. Johnson said a structural engineer will make sure the sculpture can meet windload calculations before it’s built. Commissioner Mark Brown said that while he liked the plans, his biggest concern was the entryway sign. He said the sculpture is beautiful artwork, “but you want to take your time to look at it. It doesn’t accomplish the wow factor,” Brown added. “I don’t think it prominently enough says ‘I’m in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.’” Brown suggested considering a different entryway feature. He also was surprised not to see a pelican in the sculpture since the new town logo features a pelican. “Can you throw a pelican in?” he asked. “It’s a little weird to put a pelican on there with all those sh,” Vice Mayor Scot Sasser quipped. Commissioner Stuart Dodd said he thinks a crosswalk is needed at East Tradewinds. “If you don’t provide a walkway at the right place, pedestrians will make one,” he said. Sasser said the artwork was fabulous, but he wasn’t sure he liked the sculpture at the town entryway. “More work should be done on the entry,” he said, and some sort of signage is needed at the crosswalks. Mayor Roseann Minnet said she thought the sculpture was incredible, and “with lighting it will look fabulous. It brings the reef to Commercial Boulevard.” She was concerned about maintenance and whether it would hold up in a hurricane. “I don’t want to leave the town with a maintenance nightmare,” Minnet said. The commission also selected lighting with a nautical theme and a modern twist. And they agreed on beachside furnishings, including Adirondeck chairs and whimsical bike racks. BoulevardContinued from page 1 Plans for East Commercial Boulevard between A1A and the beach allow for mid-block walkways, lush landscaping and a recon guration of parking. The $1.91 million design is intended to enhance the shopping/commercial part of the tourist town. [Right] In case the ocean breezes don’t do it, local street signs with marine gures are reminders to residents and tourists that the ocean is a major attraction in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.

18 The Pelican Friday, July 13, 2012 If you cannot locate a Pelican in your city or town, call 954-783-8700 both of us,” said Newton, who prefers not to spend any city money but left the door open to the possibility. “It depends on what they’re asking for.” Said Commissioner Ted Galatis, “I don’t like giving up city-owned property, but in some circumstances it can work as long as its fair to the taxpayer and the developer. We need parking along Wilton Drive desperately.” Originally, 12 companies showed interest in the partnership but only two, Three Palms Land Development and Gables Residential, submitted of cial bids. And only Gables’ bid was accepted as meeting all the city’s requirements. Gables owns and operates Wilton Park, located across the street from the municipal lot, a mixed-use complex that includes 145 residential rental units and 19,000 sq. ft. of commercial space. Of cials wanted to tie the public/private development to the application for a federal government grant that would have allowed the city to take over and transform Wilton Drive into two-lanes. But with its grant bid unsuccessful, the city walked away from Gables’ proposal – a $15 million mixed-use development with 120 residential rental units, 5,000 sq. ft. of retail space, 4,000 sq. ft. of civic space, a public plaza and a ve story parking garage with 175 spaces for city use and 150 to 160 spaces for residential use. William Meisel, of Three Palms, said his company was not interested in the project. Joseph G. Wilber, Gables’ senior vice president of investments, said his company is still interested in pursuing a public/private partnership.

The Pelican 19 Friday, July 13, 2012 time coming. “For 20 years I have been eyeing this building. Every time I passed by it, I kind of got a pang because it was so extraordinary. The architecture just seemed to lend itself to a design-type building,” said Shuster. “I was the rst person here with my Realtor the morning after the for sale sign went up. First to put a bid on the property.” But rather than give the interior a modern update once he owned it, Shuster restored everything to its mid-century roots – right down to the of ce furniture. “We renovated it and brought it back to its original state. Structurally I changed nothing but everything worked for my company,” said Shuster. “It just lays out perfectly.” The online contest came about after the American Institute of Architects only chose one Broward building, the municipal parking garage in Fort Lauderdale, in a list of Florida’s architectural standouts. Soon after, the staff at WLRN and The Herald were working to “correct the injustice” and recognize some of Broward’s other landmarks. “The idea’s always been to recognize in Broward County that there are historical and architectural gems that the list missed,” said Dan Grech, radio news director at WLRN and The Herald “We knew people in Broward love where they live and the buildings that surround them.” Before Shuster purchased the building in 2006, it was the Robinson Beauty School and later became the administrative of ces of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. In 2007, it was named ‘Building of the Year’ by the Historical Society. “I used to go there to have my hair done when we moved here,” said Cline. Grech said a pro le of Stranahan House and Shuster would air on WLRN soon.

The Pelican 21 Friday, July 13, 2012 WORSHIP DIRECTORY: Call 954-783-8700 to place your ad. Rev. Hyvenson Joseph senior project manager for the hotel. “There’s a serious need for this kind of amenity in the community. We’re going to ll that need in the marketplace,” said Kevin Urgo, principal at Urgo Hotels, which is developing the hotel. “There are opportunities for gorgeous outdoor areas leading right out to the sand. Pompano’s beaches are spectacular.” Urgo said Marriott chose Pompano because it views the city as “ripe for growth and development” and “an emerging marketplace between Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale. Once completed the hotel will be situated about halfway between the Marriott’s in Boca and Fort Lauderdale. “We’re just very excited to be part of the community. We believe in Pompano,” said Urgo. Ric Green, president/CEO of the Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce, is also excited because of what the hotel will bring to the city. “We certainly need more hotel rooms. We have so many wonderful things around us, but we don’t have the number of hotel rooms we need to support them,” said Green. In addition to helping Pompano’s tourism industry by accommodating more visitors, the hotel’s banquet and meeting space will bene t local events and groups. Green said there are a lot of good venues located outside of the city but having additional meeting space and banquet facilities within the city limits will be good for Pompano. “To have a big party, if Galuppi’s or the Elk’s Club is busy there’s not a lot left,” he said. “We don’t have an existing hotel that also has banquet facilities.” So far, both developers and city of cials are pleased with the relationship. “This is a full Marriott resort which is big time for Pompano,” said Mayor Lamar Fisher. “The city commission worked very hard to accommodate them to build this Marriott. This is going to be such a feather in our cap.” Bruce and Urgo praised Pompano for working with them to build the hotel, which has bene tted from the city’s expedited permitting process. “The city is being accommodating. There are timing issues but the city has worked with us,” said Bruce. The streamlined process was created to reduce the permitting time involved for economically signi cant projects. For it’s permitting process, Pompano has been recognized as a “Platinum City” by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance. The “Platinum Cities” program was started to encourage businesses to relocate to Broward County. Wilton Manors, Oakland Park and Deer eld Beach are also “Platinum Cities.” A groundbreaking ceremony has been tentatively set for Aug. 7. HotelContinued from page 1 Contractors will be held to higher standard if they use federal home repair fundsBy Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeerfield Beach – Contractors being paid with HUD funds for home repairs will find their work getting more scrutiny now than in the past. The city has drawn tougher rules for both bidders and inspectors working with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, or NSP, that brings homes up to living standards. In addition, the staff is giving each contract closer scrutiny, Assistant City Manager Keven Klopp told the commission Tuesday. “We have problems in this program with the work that has been done,” Commissioner Ben Preston said. “I have had multiple calls about the quality of the work.” Under the NSP, homeowners can apply for up to $50,000 to make home repairs. Klopp said as a result of rehab work that did not stand the test of time, new procedures have been put in place. Klopp said that while the work passed building inspections, it often proved to be poorly crafted.

24 The Pelican Friday, July 13, 2012 Emergency Manager. “We have only one mission. We are here to protect and save lives. That’s why they call us public servants.” Spill stands in the Emergency Operations Center, or EOC, the building that will become the heart of the city when the next hurricane strikes. Here full communications take place on a 24-hour basis among BSO, re rescue, public works and every other municipal department, and here each department is assigned a responsibility. It’s a bustling city within four walls. A white board serves as a message center. Each department head has a computer that feeds updated information from county and state sources and the main room has a large television so those inside can keep up with news. “Suppose a water main breaks,” says Sandra King, the city’s spokesperson. “It’s up to me to get that information out to the newspapers, radio and television personnel.” King comes to the EOC equipped with cell and satellite phones as backups to the landlines in the headquarters. Ham radio operators also join the crew for communication services. King isn’t the only one who needs to know about the water main break. Public works needs to be noti ed to start the repairs. If a backhoe is needed someone who has been training for months sets out to nd one either from the city or from a private company that has been contracted to be ready with a backhoe. “When we get a hurricane warning, we do not have any catch-up time,” says Spill. Within the EOC there is a bunk room where the emergency team sleeps. They arrive at the onset of the watch with a three-day supply of food and liquids. Families of employees are not allowed at the EOC. In addition to computers, the EOC has a large television where those inside can keep up with news. Meanwhile EOC inhabitants are being fed updates from county and state sources. As work continues within the EOC, some things stop on the streets when sustained winds hit 50 mph. Fire and police vehicles are moved off the barrier island if the storm’s direction and speed indicate a storm surge and people are asked to evacuate. For Spill, the evacuation order is a life/death decision. To those who do not evacuate, Spill says, “You should not be there. You should have evacuated when the order came through.” Fire Rescue Division Chief Michael Hohl dittos that statement and recalls that the surge waters of Hurricane Katrina cleared the land of homes along the Gulf Coast. A surge could happen here as well. “The power of water is very impressive. We’re trying to keep you safe,” Hohl says. “Nobody’s going to be able to get to you after the storm. Don’t let this happen to you. Heed the warnings. Be prepared. Have three days of food and water on hand.” Even if a building withstands the winds and surge, those living in coastal condominiums will nd themselves without electricity, which means no elevators, no refrigeration and no access to water or food. “There will be an endless supply of emergencies,” Hohl said. “No one will knock on your door with water. Imagine 10,000 people in that situation.” More storm advice came from Bill Herrmann, utility eld superintendent, who refers to the rst hour after the storm as the “Golden Hour. That’s when we are in triage trying to locate utility problems. We are all out trying to check the system. Please stay home.” Another part of this EOC scenario has to do with economics. It’s expensive, very expensive to host a hurricane. Hurricane Wilma’s costs totaled $10.7 million. That’s why there are accountants right in the middle of everything, documenting employee hours, rentals, food costs, clean-up costs and anything at all that could be reimbursed by FEMA. This week that careful documenting paid off with a FEMA check in the amount of $10.4 million. The remaining $300,000 is still being audited. But even money can become secondary to life. Spill shakes her head at the amount of complacency regarding hurricanes. People who still need to put together a plan can visit mypompanobeach.org, and seek “hurricane season” under “Select a Department” to download a plan, access more information, including important telephone numbers and have a better chance to improve their survival odds. EOCContinued from page 1 Above The vacuous-looking EOC headquarters on any day could be a room full of experts determined to watch, track and respond to any emergency brought about on the winds of a hurricane. Dozens of public employees have become trained to handle emergencies, run the city and respond to the needs of citizens. Their biggest concerns are that too many people are complacent when it comes to hurricane preparedness. Not exactly a ve-star residence, but few people expect to get a lot of sleep on these bunk beds that will accommodate city employees who will call this area home for the duration of any and all hurricanes that may hit the area this season.

The Pelican 25 Friday, July 13, 2012 Mayor Peggy Noland, who questioned workmanship on some NSP repairs years ago said, “We did have shabby work. Now contractors and inspectors need to know we won’t accept less.” Noland said she is also skeptical of change orders that drive the price of the project up. The matter was discussed Tuesday as the commission was asked to grant two homeowners funding above the $50,000 limit. In one case, contractors discovered more work had to be done to make the home livable. In the other, the homeowner wanted the second lowest bidder to get a contract to replace her air conditioner. The board decided to grant the first request and to reject the second and hold the low bidder to his obligations. Last year, the city’s Community Development Department was phased out and Senior Services Director Donna DeFronzo and Klopp given oversight of the department. The day-to-day operation was outsourced to a private company. ContractorsContinued from page 21 SightingsContinued from page 21 See SIGHTINGS on page 26 12:15 p.m. at Galuppis, 1103 N.

Benihana General Manager Mickey Gonzalez made sure the sushi, tempura and teriyaki chicken wings never ran out as area business people and local political figures mingled enthusiastically. Business cards were exchanged and contacts were made as participants enjoyed happy hour libations and great views of the Intracoastal. The convivial atmosphere ensured that all guests had a fun and productive time. “I am always happy to Benihana hosts Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Chamber networking event Left] Adam Hasner, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives Dist. 22, John Boutin, general manager of Windjammer Resort, County Commissioner Chip LaMarca and his wife, Eileen.
