Pompano raises recreation feesCosts of football and cheerleading reducedBy Michael dOliveiraPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach The cost of having fun is going up. Commissioners recently approved an ordinance that would increase many of the fees associated with the citys facilities and recreational programs. The fee increases, recommended by city staff, dont include youth tackle football and cheerleading which had their fees reduced to $50 per person. With over 725 boys and girls participating, tackle football and cheerleading is the most popular youth athletic program in the city. Its a huge program, said Mark Beaudreau, recreation programs administrator. Beaudreau said staff recommended the increase to create a more equitable balance between football and what is covered by other tax dollars. The city spends $127,000 See FEES on page 14By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach It may be when you are walking the beach boardwalk that several people burst into song. It may be at the green market when you are approached by a mime. It may be at a local restaurant where a young dance troupe, unannounced, performs a routine. It will be Anyday, Anytime, Anywhere that these Random Acts of Culture happen. Tuesday night, the rst Act in a series planned by the Deer eld Beach Cultural Committee, occurred. The South Florida Chamber Ensemble played classical music for 30 minutes prior to the city commission meeting Surprise! Something very nice just happenedThe sandwich board sign that will signify Random Acts performances.before a sparse, but delighted, audience. Said cultural committee chair, Judi Stanich, I read an article recently on how the brain reacts to art. Wouldnt it gure that lovely chamber music could trigger amicable results? The Ensemble is managed by resident Myrna Meeroff. She, on French horn, and two others, Brian Mirksy, violin, and Marie Schwartz, ute, played the music of Hayden, Beethoven, Hummel and Dauprat. One obvious effect of this brief cultural moment: the mood in the room lightened signi cantly. Random Acts is the idea of TJ Egan who is a volunteer consultant for the Cultural Committee. The plan is to stage at least one Act a month Jose Escalada and David Bronstein in Lighthouse Point supported different parties, but they demonstrated the art of crossing the aisle and sharing thoughts.

2 The PelicanFriday, Novemeber 9, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach Unity of Pompano Beach has undergone a renaissance. The congregation recently celebrated the second anniversary of its revival. The church, at 261 SE 13 Ave., rst opened its doors in the 1960s and was a thriving institution for almost 50 years. But in March 2010 the doors were closed. The congregation had dwindled, the building was in serious decline, and a sheriffs sale was imminent. Seven months later about a dozen concerned Unity members teamed up and decided to revive the church. With guidance from Unity Worldwide Ministries, they devoted months of sweat and prayer to turn the church around. They faced a daunting task. The buildings and property were a mess. Utilities had been turned off. Squatters had apparently moved in, and so had rats. Mounds of clothing that hadnt sold in yard sales was still piled up inside. The volunteers got a dumpster and went to work. There was no airconditioning, and it didnt smell that great, Bev Spivey, spiritual leader, recalls. When the clean-up effort continued on a Sunday, they paused to sing a song and say a blessing and then went right back to work. The core group not only spruced up the building and grounds. They paid off all the outstanding bills and complied with the Pompano Beach Fire Department to complete a $35,000 voice evacuation alarm system before re-opening. It was quite exciting to start a church, Spivey said. And doing the work together gave them a feeling of ownership. On Oct. 20, 2010, a service was held to celebrate the renaissance of the church, and 54 people turned out. We were greatly encouraged, Spivey said. The congregation has since grown to an average of nearly 100 at Sunday services. Most of the previous members have returned, and new people keep coming. Spivey volunteers as spiritual leader. She previously worked managing a rental property and distributing a health product. She started attending the church three years ago along with a dozen others. Spivey works with a sixmember board headed by Richard Riccardi of Margate. We are excited. We want the church to become a spiritual center for Pompano Beach and the area, said Pat Naulty of Pompano Beach, a 38-year member and vice president of the Board of Trustees.Unity beliefsAccording to Spivey Unity emphasizes the practical, everyday application of spiritual principles to help people live more abundant and meaningful lives. We teach effective, daily application of principles of truth taught and exempli ed by Jesus Christ. Unity is an openminded, accepting spiritual community that honors all paths to God, according to a church brochure. Unity af rms the power of prayer and helps people experience a stronger connection with God every day. After hitting rock bottom, Unity congregation on the rise See UNITY on page 15

The Pelican 3 Friday, November 9, 2012 By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach Residents of Breezy Point, the community on the Rockaway Peninsula ravaged by oods and re during Hurricane Sandy, may soon get relief supplies from residents of this city. Mayor Peggy Noland is asking for shoe boxes lled with items needed for personal hygiene soap, shaving supplies, bandages, toothpaste and brushes, shampoo, deodorant, hair brushes, contact lens solution, Mayor revives shoebox project, this time for burned-out New York enclaveetc. Noland said local businessman Frank Congemi who has an of ce near New York City told her the people of Breezy Point where 100 homes were destroyed were getting little help from either FEMA or the Red Cross despite last weeks nationally broadcast concert that raised $26 million for relief. The mayor said she has arranged for a warehouse here and a trucking company to take the supplies to Breezy Point where the Kiwanis Club will handle distribution. By Tuesday she hopes to have the old yellow and blue recycling bins placed around the city for donations. Noland is hoping donors will ll their own shoeboxes, but will also gladly accept donations of individual items or money. By next week, the citys website will carry more details. Noland organized a similar effort after Hurricane Katrina when the city adopted a severely damaged town in Mississippi and sent them a tractor-trailer full of personal supplies and water. Noland says Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher has offered support and hopes his city hall can be a collection point for donations. The community of Breezy Point is located on 500 acres between Rockaway Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a privately-held cooperative where many re ghters who were called to duty on 9/11 have homes.Arboretum band shell grant moves forwardDeer eld Beach City commissioners took steps this week to obtain a $150,000 grant from Broward County for a small band shell in the Arboretum at Constitution Park.

A sandwich board designed by Parks and Recreation employee Mickey Gomez will be the tipoff. It will identify the performers as being a Random Act. The Cultural Committee has long been the sponsor of the annual Festival of the in observance of Pearl Harbor Day. In the spring, it will sponsor the 2nd annual Storytelling Festival at Constitution Park. The committee operates with funds raised from the art festival and by selling food and drinks at other local events. It receives no tax dollars, but does get advice and some services from the parks and recreation department. Stanich said this week she is always open to new ideas for bringing more of the arts to Deer eld Beach. The mandate of the cultural committee is to bring more art and culture to the residents of Deer eld Beach. Random Acts of Culture [ROC] allows us to bring art to people in a spontaneous, surprising and appealing manner. ROC hooks them, leaves them wanting more and, if theories prove correct, brightens their day. Arts held on the beach in January. The committee also arranges for several concerts a year, the next one on Dec. 7 when the 13th Army Band will play a patriotic concert ActsContinued from page 1 Members of the South Florida Chamber Ensemble perform prior to the Deer eld Beach City Commission Tuesday in a Random Act of Culture.

The Pelican 5 Friday, November 9, 2012 Cast Your Advertising Net to 7 Northeast Broward Cities! The Pelican 954-783-8700 By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach U.S. District Judge Marcia Cooke has ruled police of cer Jim Woolsey, 54, failed to prove age discrimination was the overriding reason for his demotion in 2010. In doing so, Cooke awarded the town a summary judgment for dismissal of Woolseys complaint. The case had been scheduled for trial last week. Woolsey was seeking to recover damages for Age Discrimination in the Employment Act of 1967 and the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992. In her order dismissing the case, Cooke wrote that Woolsey did not prove a genuine dispute of material fact that age not age and other motives was the impetus behind the adverse employment decision. Woolsey was demoted Federal judge dismisses of cers lawsuitfrom the rank of captain to patrolman in Sept. of 2010. The month before, Police Chief Tom Nagy promoted Jay Szesnat, 37, to major, a newly created rank which made him second in command, replacing Woolsey. In response to Woolseys complaint, Chief Nagy said he demoted Woolsey because he had received complaints about his leadership style and was consistently counseling him about his performance. In 2010, the chief documented his shortcoming in a performance evaluation. Woolsey, who has been on the force for 29 years, contended that he had no such issues with the towns previous police chiefs and said Chief Nagy tried to force him to retire on two occasions in 2010 and that if he did not, he [Nagy] would take [him] down in an embarrassing ball of ames. According to Cookes order, Nagy denied this comment and his demand that Woolsey retire. Woolsey could not be reached and Mayor Dan Dodge declined to comment.

NeubergerPELICAN STAFFMonthly Spectacular Saturdays are a big deal at John Knox Village, or JKV, because of the ne talent and entertainment activities director Sara Berkowitz and her committee bring to the Village. Oct. 28 was a very special Spectacular Saturday when Florida Grand Opera, or FGO, arrived. Justin Moss, director of operations and ve Young Artists and their accompanist came to perform arias for a packed auditorium of appreciative residents. Its becoming an annual event, says Moss. Were delighted to come up from Miami to perform and see Harriet Mertz and Sam Townsend who are so generous in their support for these talented young people. Mertz and Townsend beamed with pleasure as the lights dimmed and the highly trained voices of Korean Soprano, Hye Jung Lee, tenor Matthew Maness, soprano Lacy Sauter, tenor Matthew Newlin, and mezzo soprano Cynthia Cook lled the auditorium and the hearts of the audience. Justin Moss is well known for his one hour pre-opera lecture about the operas being staged each season in both Miami and Fort Lauderdale. On his visit to JKV, he introduced each of the Young Artists, the selection being sung and he explained a bit about its signi cance in the opera.Music makes the world go round for The DivaAlthough being a patron for the Young Artists is a high note in her life, Harriet Mertz, known as The Diva, is involved in much more. When she became the volunteer conductor of the Village womens chorus, she pinned a sun ower on her 35 songbirds and renamed the group the NOTE-ables. She leads them in concerts in the Village and outside. They travel by bus to bring their music to churches, clubs and civic groups in Broward and even Palm Beach counties. I see us as a music lled marketing event showing what fun we have in our Continuing Care Retirement Village, she says. Mertzs life has been one lled with music, theater and celebrities. She still gives voice lessons to students in the Master Choral of the Palm Beaches. With a pocket full of degrees, she has sung, taught voice and directed choral groups in Miami, Palm Beaches, Japan and Taiwan. In her own Electronic Media School in Miami, she instituted the rst studio production for Gloria Estefan and her husband, Emilio. She has made a guest appearance with Minnie Pearl in the Grand Old Opera House, but admits My biggest thrill John Knox Village brings Young Artists from Florida Grand Opera to entertain residents and patrons The Diva, Harriet Mertz and Sam Townsend share a love of Florida Grand Opera.

The second one was in person. I also met Mary Martin when she was starring in Miami and gave her a lesson. Mertz moved into JKV in 2007 with her husband John, now deceased. Her talent, generosity and colorful personality have made her a favorite Villager.OperaContinued from page 10 After retiring, Townsend worked as a professional in the wardrobe department for Broadway and road shows including the Phantom, Nutcracker, Starlight Express, Cats, City of Angels, Secret Garden and more. Now immersed in an active life at JKV, Townsend serves on many committees and was recently inducted into the 2012 Hall of Fame for his volunteer efforts in the Village. Busy as he is, he never misses a performance of the Florida Grand Opera when the season begins. A modest man, The Pelican just found out, he has paid the health insurance bill for the members of the Young Artists for the past 18 years. It all began when he found one of the performers stumbling around with what turned out to be a broken foot. Townsend says, He didnt want to see a doctor because he didnt have insurance. I took him to see mine and from that season on, I began to pay the insurance for the Young Artists in residence each year. Hundreds of Village residents thank Activities Director, Sara Berkowitz, for bringing these ne performers to entertain, and Mertz and Townsend for their nancial support and encouragement of young talent.

The Pelican 13 Friday, November 9, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFOakland Park City commissioners took giant steps this week toward enlivening the northern end of a proposed Culinary Arts District in the downtown. The commission gave unanimous approval to Funky Buddha Brewery Company, an artisan/craftsman microbrewery at Oakland Park Station, 1201 NE 38 St. They also awarded a contract for construction of a nearby public plaza. The brewery is seen as the northern anchor of the proposed culinary district. This is an effort to revitalize existing buildings and transform them, said Justin Prof tt, senior planner. Owners of the brewery company plan to renovate the existing warehouse building Brewery and public plaza will anchor OPs Culinary Arts Districtinto 14,539 square feet of micro-beer brewing space, 3,161 square feet for a tasting space with a bar and 1,200 square feet of administrative of ce. The tasting space, less than 20 percent of the business oor area, required commission approval. The property owner is renovating the inside of the building and doing faade improvements. Windows will be opened so people walking by can see the brewery in operation. Were very excited about this. Its a major step forward for Oakland Park downtown, said Jeff Katims, senior associate with the Mellgren Planning Group. Some of the greatest neighborhoods in the country came about through adaptive re-use. No live music or outdoor seating is being proposed yet, he said. There will be no outdoor speakers. This is a general purpose production brewery with most of the space for manufacture, said Casey Sentz, Funky Buddha owner. Ten to 15 beers will be on tap and available for tasting. Will you have food or do [patrons] bring their own? asked Commissioner Suzanne Boisvenue. Senz said he had no plans for serving food, and he had no problem with people bringing their own. He said he plans to start with about 10 employees and work up to between 40 to 50. The applicants site development plan and business tax receipt are being expedited through the review process and are eligible for development review fee waivers. Commissioners agreed to waive a $972 development review fee. A review committee has recommended that a license or lease agreement be required for outdoor seating on the public plaza. The City Commission would have to approve the agreement.See BREWERY on page 25

He added that other cities in the county charge between 63 and 160 percent more for their programs. Some fees in Pompano Beach have not changed since 1989. Resident Joseph Wells asked commissioners to treat football the same as many other city programs. We subsidize a lot of stuff in the city, he said. According to last years city budget, after fees are subtracted, the city still spends about $80,000 on its tennis center. Recently, the city spent $148,000 to install an electronic scoreboard and timing system at its aquatics center. The increases in fees include the cost of youth athletics programs, summer programs, lessons and use of the tennis center, city pool, baseball and softball elds, basketball courts and pavilions. Those fees would be incrementally raised over the next two years. Commissioners voted 4-1 to approve recreational fee increases and, in a separate vote, unanimously decided to reduce the fees for football and cheerleading. Commissioner Barry Dockswell voted yes on the football and cheerleading decrease but no on the increases on other programs and facilities. He said that he preferred to offer discounts to families in nancial need. Vice Mayor George Brummer was against giving a discount to some families because he thought it would create and an administrative monster. He added that because of the injuries associated with tackle football, the city should be trying to de-emphasize participation in the sport. But I dont think price is the way to do it. The football fee decrease was recommended by Parks and Recreation Advisory Board members, who see the reduction as a way to keep youth involved in positive activities and off the street. According to a study by Dr. Marianne Engle, sports psychologist and clinical assistant professor at the New York Universitys Child Study Center, children who are involved in sports experience reduced anxiety and depression and increased self-esteem and psychological well-being. In sports kids nd a social milieu that can promote a spirit of social interaction, cooperation and friendship wrote Engle. She also found that sports help children improve academic performance. Commissioners will vote again on the increases on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. at city hall, 100 W. Atlantic Blvd. FeesContinued from page 1

The Pelican 15 Friday, November 9, 2012 We look for Gods presence wherever we are, Spivey said. The church addresses physical, mental and emotional needs through af rmative prayer and spiritual education. Unity has ve basic principles. 1. God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere. 2. We are spiritual beings, created in Gods image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good. 3. We create our life experiences through our way of thinking. 4. There is power in af rmative prayer, which we believe increases our awareness of God. 5. Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them. Addressing the third principle, Spivey said, We have power over our own thoughts. We can make ourselves sick or well by the power of our actions. We rely on God as the source of all good possibilities and nd a newer level of wellness. Spivey said Unity attracts people looking and searching for spirituality thats missing in their lives. Thats what happened with her. In order to become a Unity spiritual leader, she completed a 250-hour curriculum of prayer, Bible studies and interpersonal studies through the Unity Institute and Seminary in Missouri. She also completed additional studies to become a licensed Unity teacher. She taught at Unity churches in Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale before coming to the Pompano Beach church. Spivey has two grown children, a son and daughter. Besides being the setting for church services and activities, the sanctuary, with seating for 325, is available for rent. Its a beautiful facility for weddings and wonderful for concerts, Spivey said. The fellowship hall, which seats 90-100, and a small room with seating for 20-25 also are available for rent. Currently a group rents space to conduct A Course in Miracles at 7 p.m. Thursdays, and two AA groups meet at the church.

Owned by broker, Steve Pilchick, the company joined Weichert Realtors umbrella eight years ago. Weichert is a very well known franchisee in New Jersey and New York where it has been very successful since 1969. We found it to our advantage to team up with Weichert because so many of our customers come from the northeast. Bellavigna continues, Weichert offers an array of tools to help agents be successful. Were globally involved and knowledgeable locally. We give our team members real leads to people who are ready to buy and sell. Were a one stop shop with our own mortgage and title company which makes transactions simple and uncomplicated. In addition we offer optional packages including insurance, home warranties, moving and utility assistance and more. Asked how the Real Estate Market is, Bellavigna is enthusiastic. Its coming back Prices are going up. Interest rates remain amazingly low and inventory is low which makes it an exciting time for sellers. I feel we are on the cusp of a sellers market which means that buyers should move quickly while conditions are so favorable. Their slogan is Our favorite word is sold. Bellavigna believes that Weichert Realtors-Hallmark Properties has raised the standard of professionalism, giving their Realtors an edge. We hold Weicherts top award, The Pinnacle, she says. Weve been their biggest producing franchisee for all of the eight years we have been under their umbrella.Heres what some clients sayThe Pelican spoke with Sandra Brandt in New Jersey who had just helped her sick brother sell his home in Fort Lauderdale. She found Weicherts local of ce in Fort Lauderdale on the internet, and had an in person meeting with Malissa. She says, I was sold on her interest in us and her understanding of our position. We had several offers and she was so willing and accommodating about evaluating each offer and helping us decide on the right buyer. I think the human interaction between the client and the Realtor is all important and Malissa has been a perfect match for us. Cheryl Gregg lives outside of Philadelphia and also had to sell a property remotely. She says, I looked up Weichert in Fort Lauderdale because I have had satisfactory dealings with them up here. I found Malissa and was quickly con dent enough to list the property with her. My brother and I traveled back and forth a few times and found her to be a real advocate who went way beyond expectations to help us. We had an offer on our house within two weeks, but it fell through because of the buyers nances. A second offer came shortly after and we sold to that buyer for even more than we had anticipated. Malissa was helpful in every way. Dealing with her was more than satisfactory, especially considering we were out of town most of the time. A former upstate New Yorker, Malissa Bellavigna came to Florida 20 years ago and has spent much of her time in Vero Beach. She says she loves Florida and nds life in Fort Lauderdale very exciting.

The Pelican 19 Friday, November 9, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFLauderdale-By-TheSea Town commissioners unanimously agreed at a recent meeting to provide $5,000 toward the cost of having ScubaNation, a Miami-based scuba diving show on Fox Sun Sports, air a show featuring LauderdaleBy-The-Sea. The show airs on Fridays, Sundays and Mondays between April and September. It reaches 9.7 million homes in Florida and also can be seen nationwide by viewers with either DirectTV or Dish Network sports subscription packages, Steve dOliveira, public information officer, told commissioners. Each new program airs six times over two weeks and can be seen on the ScubaNation. com website. DOliveira credited Rich Barnhart of By the Sea Realty, a scuba diver and LBTS Chamber member, with first approaching ScubaNation about the possibility of filming here. When initially approached about the program, some town staffers said they would recommend the commission cover half the shows $10,000 cost if the business community would raise the other half. Town businesses already have made financial commitments of $4,500, dOliveira said. Those who have pledged funds are Aruba Beach Caf, 101 Ocean, Village Grille, Gold Coast Scuba and the Windjammer Resort plus $1,500 from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau. This would be Scuba Nations first show in Broward County. The show, with its two irreverent dive masters, bills itself as Jacques Cousteau on Rock-N-Roll. The show is a 21-minute commercial paid for by ScubaNation spotlights Lauderdale-By-The-Sea as diving meccaSee SCUBA NATION on page 22

Although this cozy eatery has an extensive menu that will satisfy the hungriest of patrons at any time of day, the breakfast offerings are sure to please locals and visitors alike. Operated by three siblings of the Spieker family Christian, Debbie and Maureen this quaint dockside eatery, with its idyllic backdrop, is designed to provide hearty fare at affordable prices.The Nauti Dawg Caf brings good food and good cheer to the shores of the Lighthouse Point Marina Nothing beats a hearty portion of Eggs Benedict Florentine with spinach, sliced tomato and Hollandaise sauce over crisp English muf ns and avorful breakfast potatoes. Corned beef hash with seasoned potatoes are perfect with 2 eggs sunny side up and fresh toast. [Photos by Malcolm McClintock]This is the nicest breakfast in town, says General Manager Chris Frank.

For those with voracious appetites, the belt-busting Big Don, named after the family patriarch who had owned and operated the marina since the mid-60s, features a scrambled skillet of eggs, bacon, diced onions, mushrooms, breakfast potato and cheddar cheese. Another Nauti Dawg favorite is the classic Eggs Benedict. This great dish features two poached eggs and Canadian bacon on an English muf n with homemade Hollandaise sauce and a choice of breakfast potato, grits or oatmeal.

22 The Pelican Friday, November 9, 2012 The Family Fun Festival allows prospective families and prospective adoptees to spend time with each other before the nal adoption. Its like the perfect, non-threatening event, said Yasmin Mendoza, ChildNets specialized adoption supervisor. Asked what kinds of qualities ChildNet looks for in parents, Mendoza said it all comes down to the situation each child is in. Its based on the needs of the child, not the strength of the parents, she said. Elizabeth Wynter, director of community relations for ChildNet, said sometimes it can be tough to nd parents to adopt. A lot of kids that linger in the foster system are older, she said, adding that seven siblings, ages 3 to 13, were recently adopted by one family. There are people willing to do that. We just need to nd them. And when a child does nd a permanent home, Jessica Samuels, an adoption recruiter with Wendys Wonderful Kids, which is sponsored by the Dave Thomas Foundation, said its like a whole new beginning. The best part is its like a brand new them. They completely have a brand new chance, she said. But even if parents dont adopt a child, Smith emphatically recommends becoming a foster parent. She added that many people refrain from becoming a foster parent because they dont want their feelings hurt when the child is adopted. You cant adopt them all but you dont foster for that reason. You foster to help a child in crisis.ChildNetContinued from page 7the location featured in the program. The ScubaNation show would highlight the towns great beach diving reputation and our designation as the Shore Dive Capital of South Florida, dOliveira wrote in a report to commissioners. It would feature the SS Coopenhagen, a wreck listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Biorock reef, BugFest, Jazz on the Square and hotels, restaurants and dive shops. Three businessmen in town urged commissioners to support the funding. Barnhart said the program would focus on both the towns underwater resources and what happens on land. He said there is tremendous support for the program. Steve Gagas, general manager of Gold Coast Scuba, described the show as another incentive for scuba divers to visit the town. John Boutin, general manager of the Windjammer Resort, said, This is one more move forward in a progression to keep Lauderdale-By-The-Sea in the eyes of the traveling public. The town is being discovered slowly but surely.

The Pelican 23 Friday, November 9, 2012 It makes you feel good because you feel people believe you have been doing a good job You feel appreciated, said Green. People feel [Julie and I] have done a good job of running the city. Green, rst elected four years ago, said he wants to focus on improvements to the citys green building code as well as install solar panels on the roof of city hall if we can nd some grant money. Green also wants to look into persuading the Florida Department of Transportation [or FDOT] to make Wilton Drive into two lanes. With the city unable to takeover and maintain the road on its own, Green thinks FDOT might be willing to make the changes and keep control of the road. I think the FDOT people are nally growing up a bit. Carson, who was rst elected to serve a two-year term in 2010 after serving as interim commissioner from November of 2008 to February of 2009, also wants to work on Wilton Drive especially the parking problem that has been a major issue in the city for years. We want to get parking nalized and prepare for the future train station. Both visually and infrastructure wise, she said. Wilton Manors is one of the cities that may get one of the commuter rail stations planned along the Florida East Coast railway. Carson also wants to keep her focus on protecting neighborhoods as well as streaming commission meetings on the internet, improving outreach to residents and little things, such as increasing the number of garage sales residents are allowed to have per year. Its not a big deal but its something the residents want. It doesnt hurt anybody and does have a potential to bring in some revenue. Her other major goal was bringing more affordable housing into the city something both she and White have said they want to work on together. One issue Kimber brought up in his campaign was a lack of Workforce Housing. That will be something our city needs to consider and Kimber will be a great asset, Carson said. Despite losing the election, White said he feels positive about his campaign and he plans to run again in 2014. I got almost 600 votes. Im not upset. I think I brought peoples attention to other parts of the city and the economic duress of other parts of the city, he said. And all four [candidates] were in the race for the good of the community. In 2014, the mayors seat and the commission seats currently held by Scott Newton and Ted Galatis will be on the ballot. Along with Workforce Housing, Kimber wants to see a blight study done along Powerline Road. The more people living in our city the more money stays in our community, he said. Torre also commended his opponents on the campaign. It was a great exchange. I think we all handled ourselves very well. Asked if he might run in 2014 Torre responded, My plan is to continue my involvement and just stay very active and well see what happens in the future. Ill continue to move forward. I just enjoy being involved. Green, Carson and Mayor ary Resnick, who ran unopposed, will be sworn-in at Hagen Park, 2020 Wilton Drive, at 6 p.m. before the 7 p.m. city commission meeting.

The area in Constitution Park designated for the band shell abuts several Deer Creek residences. Commissioner Bill Ganz, whose district includes the park said, This will be a wonderful addition to our west area.Gambling hotline producing more tipsDeer eld Beach The BSO hotline set up to receive tips on gambling activities within youth sport leagues has generated more than 100 callers since nine football coaches were arrested last week and charged with felony bookmaking. Following a press conference at which the hotline number, 954-8885259, was announced, Police Chief Pete Sudler said people have been calling with more tips on what may be illegal actions. This investigation is not over, the chief said. BSOs undercover work to in ltrate the South Florida Football League resulted in the arrest of one Deer eld Beach man and eight others who were placing bets on the outcome of youth league football games. The operation began after ESPN aired a show last year that indicated coaches from the Deer eld Packer Rattlers were involved. The local coach, Darron Bostic, was charged with bookmaking that occurred in 2011. He did not coach here this year. Because of that show, city commissioners passed an ordinance requiring anyone working with young people at the citys athletic elds to undergo Level 2 background checks. This week, BSO Lt. Frank Ballante said, This story is not about the police work. The real story is that the city took a stance. Once you implement the rules, it is easy to clean up the mess. Cities are now requesting we send them the Deer eld ordinance.Where to bring Fido to frolicDeer eld Beach Three more pet-friendly parks, all in the Waterford area, were approved by commissioners this week. Added to a list of six parks where domestic pets can play is Crystal Height Park north, central and south.

The event is set for 6:30 p.m. at the towns fire station on Bougainvilla Drive adjacent to Town Hall, 4501 N. Ocean Drive. The public is invited to attend the ceremony. The town purchased the $325,000 fire engine pumper for the Volunteer Fire Department which provides fire suppression service in town. After local pastors and a rabbi bless the vehicle, the mayor and commissioners will clean the wheel wells and then symbolically push the 25-ton truck into the station while a firefighter/driver backs it up using the motor. The tradition of pushing a truck into the station dates to the 1800s, when horses pulled fire wagons.

Pompano Beach Fishing Pier Reopens partiallyThe Pompano Fishing Pier will partially re-open today after initial assessments have determined the pier is safe for public use. The far east octagon section will remain closed until the damaged railings have been replaced. An in-depth assessment of the long term life of the pier will be conducted in the future. RJ BoyleRJ BOYLE STUDIOSThe weather was perfect this week for the sail sh bite. We had offshore winds most of the week and elded numerous calls from boats catching between two and 20 sail sh per day. Some of the guys were slow trolling live baits out of the riggers and others were ying shing kites to catch the sail sh. Most guys sh goggle eyes or pilchards for their bait of choice but this week quite a few sail sh were caught on mullet. Loads of mullet have been migrating south along our coast. If you are low on funds or you just cant nd any live bait, dont be afraid to net a handful of mullet. Plenty of sh, not just sail sh, get caught on mullet all of the time. The best depth has been in 130 ft. of water and the best of the bite seemed to be right off of the Boynton Inlet. As for the sword sh, I shed on a boat out of Miami Beach Marina on Saturday. It was a great day. We caught a 400 lb. pumpkin sword sh. The sail sh bite is on in South FloridaRJ Boyle, left, and Jason Boyll proudly show off their latest catch.A pumpkin sword sh has salmon colored meat and is considered by some to be a delicacy. The color of the meat is caused by eating red deepwater shrimp. Lets just say, I had some great meals this week. Until next time.

Pompano raises recreation feesCosts of football and cheerleading reducedBy Michael d’OliveiraPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach – The cost of having fun is going up. Commissioners recently approved an ordinance that would increase many of the fees associated with the city’s facilities and recreational programs. The fee increases, recommended by city staff, don’t include youth tackle football and cheerleading which had their fees reduced to $50 per person. With over 725 boys and girls participating, tackle football and cheerleading is the most popular youth athletic program in the city. “It’s a huge program,” said Mark Beaudreau, recreation programs administrator. Beaudreau said staff recommended the increase to create a “more equitable balance” between football and what is covered by other tax dollars.” The city spends $127,000 See FEES on page 14By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeer eld Beach – It may be when you are walking the beach boardwalk that several people burst into song. It may be at the green market when you are approached by a mime. It may be at a local restaurant where a young dance troupe, unannounced, performs a routine. It will be “Anyday, Anytime, Anywhere” that these “Random Acts of Culture” happen. Tuesday night, the rst “Act” in a series planned by the Deer eld Beach Cultural Committee, occurred. The South Florida Chamber Ensemble played classical music for 30 minutes prior to the city commission meeting Surprise! Something very nice just happenedThe sandwich board sign that will signify Random Acts performances.before a sparse, but delighted, audience. Said cultural committee chair, Judi Stanich, “I read an article recently on how the brain reacts to art. Wouldn’t it gure that lovely chamber music could trigger amicable results?” The Ensemble is managed by resident Myrna Meeroff. She, on French horn, and two others, Brian Mirksy, violin, and Marie Schwartz, ute, played the music of Hayden, Beethoven, Hummel and Dauprat. One obvious effect of this brief cultural moment: the mood in the room lightened signi cantly. “Random Acts” is the idea of TJ Egan who is a volunteer consultant for the Cultural Committee. The plan is to stage at least one Act a month Jose Escalada and David Bronstein in Lighthouse Point supported different parties, but they demonstrated the art of crossing the aisle and sharing thoughts.

2 The PelicanFriday, Novemeber 9, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach – Unity of Pompano Beach has undergone a renaissance. The congregation recently celebrated the second anniversary of its revival. The church, at 261 SE 13 Ave., rst opened its doors in the 1960s and was a thriving institution for almost 50 years. But in March 2010 the doors were closed. The congregation had dwindled, the building was in serious decline, and a sheriff’s sale was imminent. Seven months later about a dozen concerned Unity members teamed up and decided to revive the church. With guidance from Unity Worldwide Ministries, they devoted months of sweat and prayer to turn the church around. They faced a daunting task. The buildings and property were a mess. Utilities had been turned off. Squatters had apparently moved in, and so had rats. Mounds of clothing that hadn’t sold in yard sales was still piled up inside. The volunteers got a dumpster and went to work. There was no airconditioning, and it didn’t smell that great, Bev Spivey, spiritual leader, recalls. When the clean-up effort continued on a Sunday, they paused to sing a song and say a blessing and then went right back to work. The core group not only spruced up the building and grounds. They paid off all the outstanding bills and complied with the Pompano Beach Fire Department to complete a $35,000 voice evacuation alarm system before re-opening. “It was quite exciting to start a church,” Spivey said. And doing the work together gave them a feeling of ownership. On Oct. 20, 2010, a service was held to celebrate the renaissance of the church, and 54 people turned out. “We were greatly encouraged,” Spivey said. The congregation has since grown to an average of nearly 100 at Sunday services. Most of the previous members have returned, and new people keep coming. Spivey volunteers as spiritual leader. She previously worked managing a rental property and distributing a health product. She started attending the church three years ago along with a dozen others. Spivey works with a sixmember board headed by Richard Riccardi of Margate. “We are excited. We want the church to become a spiritual center for Pompano Beach and the area,” said Pat Naulty of Pompano Beach, a 38-year member and vice president of the Board of Trustees.Unity beliefsAccording to Spivey “Unity emphasizes the practical, everyday application of spiritual principles to help people live more abundant and meaningful lives. We teach effective, daily application of principles of truth taught and exempli ed by Jesus Christ.” Unity is an openminded, accepting spiritual community that honors all paths to God, according to a church brochure. Unity af rms the power of prayer and helps people experience a stronger connection with God every day. After hitting rock bottom, Unity congregation on the rise See UNITY on page 15

Mayor Peggy Noland is asking for shoe boxes lled with items needed for personal hygiene – soap, shaving supplies, bandages, toothpaste and brushes, shampoo, deodorant, hair brushes, contact lens solution, Mayor revives shoebox project, this time for burned-out New York enclaveetc. Noland said local businessman Frank Congemi who has an of ce near New York City told her the people of Breezy Point where 100 homes were destroyed were getting little help from either FEMA or the Red Cross despite last week’s nationally broadcast concert that raised $26 million for relief. The mayor said she has arranged for a warehouse here and a trucking company to take the supplies to Breezy Point where the Kiwanis Club will handle distribution. By Tuesday she hopes to have the old yellow and blue recycling bins placed around the city for donations. Noland is hoping donors will ll their own shoeboxes, but will also gladly accept donations of individual items or money. By next week, the city’s website will carry more details. Noland organized a similar effort after Hurricane Katrina when the city adopted a severely damaged town in Mississippi and sent them a tractor-trailer full of personal supplies and water. Noland says Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher has offered support and hopes his city hall can be a collection point for donations. The community of Breezy Point is located on 500 acres between Rockaway Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a privately-held cooperative where many re ghters who were called to duty on 9/11 have homes.Arboretum band shell grant moves forwardDeer eld Beach – City commissioners took steps this week to obtain a $150,000 grant from Broward County for a small band shell in the Arboretum at Constitution Park.

A sandwich board designed by Parks and Recreation employee Mickey Gomez will be the tipoff. It will identify the performers as being a Random Act. The Cultural Committee has long been the sponsor of the annual Festival of the in observance of Pearl Harbor Day. In the spring, it will sponsor the 2nd annual Storytelling Festival at Constitution Park. The committee operates with funds raised from the art festival and by selling food and drinks at other local events. It receives no tax dollars, but does get advice and some services from the parks and recreation department. Stanich said this week she is always open to new ideas for bringing more of the arts to Deer eld Beach. “The mandate of the cultural committee is to bring more art and culture to the residents of Deer eld Beach. Random Acts of Culture [ROC] allows us to bring art to people in a spontaneous, surprising and appealing manner. ROC hooks them, leaves them wanting more and, if theories prove correct, brightens their day.” Arts held on the beach in January. The committee also arranges for several concerts a year, the next one on Dec. 7 when the 13th Army Band will play a patriotic concert ActsContinued from page 1 Members of the South Florida Chamber Ensemble perform prior to the Deer eld Beach City Commission Tuesday in a “Random Act of Culture.” Musicians are, from left, Brian Mirksy, Myrna Meeroff andMarie Schwartz.

In her order dismissing the case, Cooke wrote that Woolsey did not prove “a genuine dispute of material fact that age – not age and other motives was the impetus behind the adverse employment decision.” Woolsey was demoted Federal judge dismisses of cer’s lawsuitfrom the rank of captain to patrolman in Sept. of 2010. The month before, Police Chief Tom Nagy promoted Jay Szesnat, 37, to major, a newly created rank which made him second in command, replacing Woolsey. In response to Woolsey’s complaint, Chief Nagy said he demoted Woolsey because he had received complaints about his leadership style and was consistently counseling him about his performance. In 2010, the chief documented his shortcoming in a performance evaluation. Woolsey, who has been on the force for 29 years, contended that he had no such issues with the town’s previous police chiefs and said Chief Nagy tried to force him to retire on two occasions in 2010 and that if he did not, he [Nagy] would “take [him] down in an embarrassing ball of ames.” According to Cooke’s order, Nagy denied this comment and his demand that Woolsey retire. Woolsey could not be reached and Mayor Dan Dodge declined to comment. One dead in house rePompano Beach At 11:16 a.m. on Thursday, Pompano Beach Fire Rescue responded to a house re at 1249 NE 25 St..

NeubergerPELICAN STAFFMonthly Spectacular Saturdays are a big deal at John Knox Village, or JKV, because of the ne talent and entertainment activities director Sara Berkowitz and her committee bring to the Village. Oct. 28 was a very special Spectacular Saturday when Florida Grand Opera, or FGO, arrived. Justin Moss, director of operations and ve Young Artists and their accompanist came to perform arias for a packed auditorium of appreciative residents. “It’s becoming an annual event,” says Moss. “We’re delighted to come up from Miami to perform and see Harriet Mertz and Sam Townsend who are so generous in their support for these talented young people.” Mertz and Townsend beamed with pleasure as the lights dimmed and the highly trained voices of Korean Soprano, Hye Jung Lee, tenor Matthew Maness, soprano Lacy Sauter, tenor Matthew Newlin, and mezzo soprano Cynthia Cook lled the auditorium and the hearts of the audience. Justin Moss is well known for his one hour pre-opera lecture about the operas being staged each season in both Miami and Fort Lauderdale. On his visit to JKV, he introduced each of the Young Artists, the selection being sung and he explained a bit about its signi cance in the opera.Music makes the world go ‘round for The DivaAlthough being a patron for the Young Artists is a high note in her life, Harriet Mertz, known as The Diva, is involved in much more. When she became the volunteer conductor of the Village women’s chorus, she pinned a sun ower on her 35 songbirds and renamed the group the NOTE-ables. She leads them in concerts in the Village and outside. They travel by bus to bring their music to churches, clubs and civic groups in Broward and even Palm Beach counties. “I see us as a music lled marketing event showing what fun we have in our Continuing Care Retirement Village,” she says. Mertz’s life has been one lled with music, theater and celebrities. She still gives voice lessons to students in the Master Choral of the Palm Beaches. With a pocket full of degrees, she has sung, taught voice and directed choral groups in Miami, Palm Beaches, Japan and Taiwan. In her own Electronic Media School in Miami, she instituted the rst studio production for Gloria Estefan and her husband, Emilio. She has made a guest appearance with Minnie Pearl in the Grand Old Opera House, but admits “My biggest thrill John Knox Village brings Young Artists from Florida Grand Opera to entertain residents and patrons The Diva, Harriet Mertz and Sam Townsend share a love of Florida Grand Opera.

Now immersed in an active life at JKV, Townsend serves on many committees and was recently inducted into the 2012 Hall of Fame for his volunteer efforts in the Village. Busy as he is, he never misses a performance of the Florida Grand Opera when the season begins. A modest man, The Pelican just found out, he has paid the health insurance bill for the members of the Young Artists for the past 18 years. It all began when he found one of the performers stumbling around with what turned out to be a broken foot. Townsend says, “He didn’t want to see a doctor because he didn’t have insurance. I took him to see mine and from that season on, I began to pay the insurance for the Young Artists’ in residence each year.” Hundreds of Village residents thank Activities Director, Sara Berkowitz, for bringing these ne performers to entertain, and Mertz and Townsend for their nancial support and encouragement of young talent.

The Pelican 13 Friday, November 9, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFOakland Park – City commissioners took giant steps this week toward enlivening the northern end of a proposed Culinary Arts District in the downtown. The commission gave unanimous approval to Funky Buddha Brewery Company, an artisan/craftsman microbrewery at Oakland Park Station, 1201 NE 38 St. They also awarded a contract for construction of a nearby public plaza. The brewery is seen as the northern anchor of the proposed culinary district. “This is an effort to revitalize existing buildings and transform them,” said Justin Prof tt, senior planner. Owners of the brewery company plan to renovate the existing warehouse building Brewery and public plaza will anchor OP’s Culinary Arts Districtinto 14,539 square feet of micro-beer brewing space, 3,161 square feet for a tasting space with a bar and 1,200 square feet of administrative of ce. The tasting space, less than 20 percent of the business oor area, required commission approval. The property owner is renovating the inside of the building and doing faade improvements. Windows will be opened so people walking by can see the brewery in operation. “We’re very excited about this. It’s a major step forward for Oakland Park downtown,” said Jeff Katims, senior associate with the Mellgren Planning Group. “Some of the greatest neighborhoods in the country came about through adaptive re-use.” No live music or outdoor seating is being proposed yet, he said. There will be no outdoor speakers. “This is a general purpose production brewery with most of the space for manufacture,” said Casey Sentz, Funky Buddha owner. Ten to 15 beers will be on tap and available for tasting. “Will you have food or do [patrons] bring their own?” asked Commissioner Suzanne Boisvenue. Senz said he had no plans for serving food, and he had no problem with people bringing their own. He said he plans to start with about 10 employees and work up to between 40 to 50. The applicant’s site development plan and business tax receipt are being expedited through the review process and are eligible for development review fee waivers. Commissioners agreed to waive a $972 development review fee. A review committee has recommended that a license or lease agreement be required for outdoor seating on the public plaza. The City Commission would have to approve the agreement.See BREWERY on page 25

He added that other cities in the county charge between 63 and 160 percent more for their programs. Some fees in Pompano Beach have not changed since 1989. Resident Joseph Wells asked commissioners to treat football the same as many other city programs. “We subsidize a lot of stuff in the city,” he said. According to last year’s city budget, after fees are subtracted, the city still spends about $80,000 on its tennis center. Recently, the city spent $148,000 to install an electronic scoreboard and timing system at its aquatics center. The increases in fees include the cost of youth athletics programs, summer programs, lessons and use of the tennis center, city pool, baseball and softball elds, basketball courts and pavilions. Those fees would be incrementally raised over the next two years. Commissioners voted 4-1 to approve recreational fee increases and, in a separate vote, unanimously decided to reduce the fees for football and cheerleading. Commissioner Barry Dockswell voted yes on the football and cheerleading decrease but no on the increases on other programs and facilities. He said that he preferred to offer discounts to families in nancial need. Vice Mayor George Brummer was against giving a discount to some families because he thought it would create and an “administrative monster.” He added that because of the injuries associated with tackle football, the city should be trying to de-emphasize participation in the sport. “But I don’t think price is the way to do it.” The football fee decrease was recommended by Parks and Recreation Advisory Board members, who see the reduction as a way to keep youth involved in positive activities and off the street. According to a study by Dr. Marianne Engle, sports psychologist and clinical assistant professor at the New York University’s Child Study Center, children who are involved in sports experience reduced anxiety and depression and increased self-esteem and psychological well-being. “In sports kids nd a social milieu that can promote a spirit of social interaction, cooperation and friendship” wrote Engle. She also found that sports help children improve academic performance. Commissioners will vote again on the increases on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. at city hall, 100 W.

The Pelican 15 Friday, November 9, 2012 “We look for God’s presence wherever we are,” Spivey said. The church addresses physical, mental and emotional needs through af rmative prayer and spiritual education. Unity has ve basic principles. 1. God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere. 2. We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good. 3. We create our life experiences through our way of thinking. 4. There is power in af rmative prayer, which we believe increases our awareness of God. 5. Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them. Addressing the third principle, Spivey said, “We have power over our own thoughts. We can make ourselves sick or well by the power of our actions. We rely on God as the source of all good possibilities and nd a newer level of wellness.” Spivey said Unity attracts people looking and searching for spirituality that’s missing in their lives. That’s what happened with her. In order to become a Unity spiritual leader, she completed a 250-hour curriculum of prayer, Bible studies and interpersonal studies through the Unity Institute and Seminary in Missouri. She also completed additional studies to become a licensed Unity teacher. She taught at Unity churches in Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale before coming to the Pompano Beach church. Spivey has two grown children, a son and daughter. Besides being the setting for church services and activities, the sanctuary, with seating for 325, is available for rent. “It’s a beautiful facility for weddings and wonderful for concerts,” Spivey said. The fellowship hall, which seats 90-100, and a small room with seating for 20-25 also are available for rent.

The Pelican 17 Friday, November 9, 2012 WeichertContinued from page 8been a successful Florida Realty company since 1978. Owned by broker, Steve Pilchick, the company joined Weichert Realtors umbrella eight years ago. Weichert is a very well known franchisee in New Jersey and New York where it has been very successful since 1969. We found it to our advantage to team up with Weichert because so many of our customers come from the northeast.” Bellavigna continues, “Weichert offers an array of tools to help agents be successful. We’re globally involved and knowledgeable locally. We give our team members real leads to people who are ready to buy and sell. We’re a one stop shop with our own mortgage and title company which makes transactions simple and uncomplicated. In addition we offer optional packages including insurance, home warranties, moving and utility assistance and more.” Asked how the Real Estate Market is, Bellavigna is enthusiastic. “It’s coming back Prices are going up. Interest rates remain amazingly low and inventory is low which makes it an exciting time for sellers. I feel we are on the cusp of a seller’s market which means that buyers should move quickly while conditions are so favorable.” Their slogan is “Our favorite word is sold.” Bellavigna believes that Weichert Realtors-Hallmark Properties has raised the standard of professionalism, giving their Realtors an edge. “ We hold Weichert’s top award, The Pinnacle,” she says. “We’ve been their biggest producing franchisee for all of the eight years we have been under their umbrella.”Here’s what some clients say The Pelican spoke with Sandra Brandt in New Jersey who had just helped her sick brother sell his home in Fort Lauderdale. She found Weichert’s local of ce in Fort Lauderdale on the internet, and had an in person meeting with Malissa. She says, “I was sold on her interest in us and her understanding of our position. We had several offers and she was so willing and accommodating about evaluating each offer and helping us decide on the right buyer. I think the human interaction between the client and the Realtor is all important and Malissa has been a perfect match for us.” Cheryl Gregg lives outside of Philadelphia and also had to sell a property remotely. She says, “I looked up Weichert in Fort Lauderdale because I have had satisfactory dealings with them up here. I found Malissa and was quickly con dent enough to list the property with her. My brother and I traveled back and forth a few times and found her to be a real advocate who went way beyond expectations to help us. We had an offer on our house within two weeks, but it fell through because of the buyer’s nances. A second offer came shortly after and we sold to that buyer for even more than we had anticipated. Malissa was helpful in every way. Dealing with her was more than satisfactory, especially considering we were out of town most of the time.” A former upstate New Yorker, Malissa Bellavigna came to Florida 20 years ago and has spent much of her time in Vero Beach. She says she loves Florida and nds life in Fort Lauderdale very exciting. For further information, call 954-990-6497.

The Pelican 19 Friday, November 9, 2012 By Judy VikPELICAN STAFFLauderdale-By-TheSea – Town commissioners unanimously agreed at a recent meeting to provide $5,000 toward the cost of having ScubaNation, a Miami-based scuba diving show on Fox Sun Sports, air a show featuring LauderdaleBy-The-Sea. The show airs on Fridays, Sundays and Mondays between April and September. It reaches 9.7 million homes in Florida and also can be seen nationwide by viewers with either DirectTV or Dish Network sports subscription packages, Steve d’Oliveira, public information officer, told commissioners. Each new program airs six times over two weeks and can be seen on the ScubaNation. com website. D’Oliveira credited Rich Barnhart of By the Sea Realty, a scuba diver and LBTS Chamber member, with first approaching ScubaNation about the possibility of filming here. When initially approached about the program, some town staffers said they would recommend the commission cover half the show’s $10,000 cost if the business community would raise the other half. Town businesses already have made financial commitments of $4,500, d’Oliveira said. Those who have pledged funds are Aruba Beach Caf, 101 Ocean, Village Grille, Gold Coast Scuba and the Windjammer Resort plus $1,500 from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau. This would be Scuba Nation’s first show in Broward County. The show, with its two irreverent dive masters, bills itself as “Jacques Cousteau on Rock-N-Roll.” The show is a 21-minute commercial paid for by ScubaNation spotlights Lauderdale-By-The-Sea as diving meccaSee SCUBA NATION on page 22

Although this cozy eatery has an extensive menu that will satisfy the hungriest of patrons at any time of day, the breakfast offerings are sure to please locals and visitors alike. Operated by three siblings of the Spieker family Christian, Debbie and Maureen this quaint dockside eatery, with its idyllic backdrop, is designed to provide hearty fare at affordable prices.The Nauti Dawg Caf brings good food and good cheer to the shores of the Lighthouse Point Marina Nothing beats a hearty portion of Eggs Benedict Florentine with spinach, sliced tomato and Hollandaise sauce over crisp English muf ns and avorful breakfast potatoes. Corned beef hash with seasoned potatoes are perfect with 2 eggs sunny side up and fresh toast. [Photos by Malcolm McClintock]“This is the nicest breakfast in town,” says General Manager Chris Frank. “We offer gourmet home-cooked food in a beautiful setting.” Up to 11:30 a.m., the Nauti Dawg proposes a host of mouthwatering day-starter specialties. Guests can enjoy uffy buttermilk pancakes, coconut French toast, eggs any style with choice of meats and myriad omelets such as the Farmer’s veggie, the meat lovers, the lox & cream cheese or even the Mediterranean with spinach, feta and hummus. For those with voracious appetites, the belt-busting “Big Don”, named after the family patriarch who had owned and operated the marina since the mid-60’s, features a scrambled skillet of eggs, bacon, diced onions, mushrooms, breakfast potato and cheddar cheese. Another Nauti Dawg favorite is the classic Eggs Benedict. This great dish features two poached eggs and Canadian bacon on an English muf n with homemade Hollandaise sauce and a choice of breakfast potato, grits or oatmeal. For a spurious dose of healthiness, customers can opt for the Florentine version with spinach and sliced tomatoes. “We also regularly offer our amazing lump crab cake bennies with asparagus or lobster bennies,” says Christian Spieker with unvarnished enthusiasm. “People just love them.” “And all our sauces are made from scratch” adds his sister Debbie. “We know that See NAUTI DOG on page 31

22 The Pelican Friday, November 9, 2012 The “Family Fun Festival” allows prospective families and prospective adoptees to spend time with each other before the nal adoption. “It’s like the perfect, non-threatening event,” said Yasmin Mendoza, ChildNet’s specialized adoption supervisor. Asked what kinds of qualities ChildNet looks for in parents, Mendoza said it all comes down to the situation each child is in. “It’s based on the needs of the child, not the strength of the parents,” she said. Elizabeth Wynter, director of community relations for ChildNet, said sometimes it can be tough to nd parents to adopt. “A lot of kids that linger in the foster system are older,” she said, adding that seven siblings, ages 3 to 13, were recently adopted by one family. “There are people willing to do that. We just need to nd them.” And when a child does nd a permanent home, Jessica Samuels, an adoption recruiter with Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, which is sponsored by the Dave Thomas Foundation, said it’s like a whole new beginning. “The best part is it’s like a brand new them. They completely have a brand new chance,” she said. But even if parents don’t adopt a child, Smith emphatically recommends becoming a foster parent. She added that many people refrain from becoming a foster parent because they don’t want their feelings hurt when the child is adopted. “You can’t adopt them all but you don’t foster for that reason. You foster to help a child in crisis.”ChildNetContinued from page 7the location featured in the program. “The ScubaNation show would highlight the town’s great beach diving reputation and our designation as the ‘Shore Dive Capital of South Florida,’” d’Oliveira wrote in a report to commissioners. It would feature the SS Coopenhagen, a wreck listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Biorock reef, BugFest, Jazz on the Square and hotels, restaurants and dive shops. Three businessmen in town urged commissioners to support the funding. Barnhart said the program would focus on both the town’s underwater resources and what happens on land. He said there is tremendous support for the program. Steve Gagas, general manager of Gold Coast Scuba, described the show as “another incentive for scuba divers to visit the town.” John Boutin, general manager of the Windjammer Resort, said, “This is one more move forward in a progression to keep Lauderdale-By-The-Sea in the eyes of the traveling public. The town is being discovered slowly but surely.” In moving to support the funds, Commissioner Stuart Dodd said, “We couldn’t buy advertising for this price.”ScubaNationContinued from page 19On Saturday, Nov. 10, BSO CyberVisor: Oakland Park District will host a Shred A Thon/Prescription Drug Take Back from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Municipal Building, 5399 N.

The Pelican 23 Friday, November 9, 2012 “It makes you feel good because you feel people believe you have been doing a good job You feel appreciated,” said Green. “People feel [Julie and I] have done a good job of running the city.” Green, rst elected four years ago, said he wants to focus on improvements to the city’s green building code as well as install solar panels on the roof of city hall “if we can nd some grant money.” Green also wants to look into persuading the Florida Department of Transportation [or FDOT] to make Wilton Drive into two lanes. With the city unable to takeover and maintain the road on its own, Green thinks FDOT might be willing to make the changes and keep control of the road. “I think the FDOT people are nally growing up a bit.” Carson, who was rst elected to serve a two-year term in 2010 after serving as interim commissioner from November of 2008 to February of 2009, also wants to work on Wilton Drive – especially the parking problem that has been a major issue in the city for years. “We want to get parking nalized and prepare for the future train station. Both visually and infrastructure wise,” she said. Wilton Manors is one of the cities that may get one of the commuter rail stations planned along the Florida East Coast railway. Carson also wants to keep her focus on protecting neighborhoods as well as streaming commission meetings on the internet, improving outreach to residents and little things, such as increasing the number of garage sales residents are allowed to have per year. “It’s not a big deal but its something the residents want. It doesn’t hurt anybody and does have a potential to bring in some revenue.” Her other major goal was bringing more affordable housing into the city – something both she and White have said they want to work on together. “One issue Kimber brought up in his campaign was a lack of Workforce Housing. That will be something our city needs to consider and Kimber will be a great asset,” Carson said. Despite losing the election, White said he feels positive about his campaign and he plans to run again in 2014. “I got almost 600 votes. I’m not upset. I think I brought people’s attention to other parts of the city and the economic duress of other parts of the city,” he said. “And all four [candidates] were in the race for the good of the community.” In 2014, the mayor’s seat and the commission seats currently held by Scott Newton and Ted Galatis will be on the ballot. “Along with Workforce Housing, Kimber wants to see a blight study done along Powerline Road. “The more people living in our city the more money stays in our community,” he said. Torre also commended his opponents on the campaign. “It was a great exchange. I think we all handled ourselves very well.” Asked if he might run in 2014 Torre responded, “My plan is to continue my involvement and just stay very active and we’ll see what happens in the future. I’ll continue to move forward. I just enjoy being involved.” Green, Carson and Mayor ary Resnick, who ran unopposed, will be sworn-in at Hagen Park, 2020 Wilton Drive, at 6 p.m. before the 7 p.m. city commission meeting.

24 The Pelican Friday, November 9, 2012 a “great attraction at no cost to the city.” Behan also met this week with the Deer Creek Improvement Association to explain the project. The area in Constitution Park designated for the band shell abuts several Deer Creek residences. Commissioner Bill Ganz, whose district includes the park said, “This will be a wonderful addition to our west area.”Gambling hotline producing more tipsDeer eld Beach – The BSO hotline set up to receive tips on gambling activities within youth sport leagues has generated more than 100 callers since nine football coaches were arrested last week and charged with felony bookmaking. Following a press conference at which the hotline number, 954-8885259, was announced, Police Chief Pete Sudler said people have been calling with more tips on what may be illegal actions. “This investigation is not over,” the chief said. BSO’s undercover work to in ltrate the South Florida Football League resulted in the arrest of one Deer eld Beach man and eight others who were placing bets on the outcome of youth league football games. The operation began after ESPN aired a show last year that indicated coaches from the Deer eld Packer Rattlers were involved. The local coach, Darron Bostic, was charged with bookmaking that occurred in 2011. He did not coach here this year. Because of that show, city commissioners passed an ordinance requiring anyone working with young people at the city’s athletic elds to undergo Level 2 background checks. This week, BSO Lt. Frank Ballante said, “This story is not about the police work. The real story is that the city took a stance. Once you implement the rules, it is easy to clean up the mess. Cities are now requesting we send them the Deer eld ordinance.”Where to bring Fido to frolicDeer eld Beach – Three more pet-friendly parks, all in the Waterford area, were approved by commissioners this week. Added to a list of six parks where domestic pets can play is Crystal Height Park north, central and south. The parks are located at 2601 SW Deer eldContinued from page 310 Dr., 1333 SW 24 Terr., and 1459 SW 28 Ave. Already on the list are Deer Run Estates, 301 SW 31 Ave., Ecidar Park, 1901 SW 15 St., Mayo Howard, 1131 FAU Research Blvd., the median and park at 451 SE 19 Ave., and the Villages of Hillsboro North, 4111 NW 6 St. Dogs must be leashed and under control and are not allowed in food concessions, in water, gardens, community centers, playgrounds, athletic elds or on the beach.Learn how to save the planet, earn recycling pointsDeer eld Beach – Residents can earn 200 recycling points good for deals at local businesses by attending the 14th annual celebration of America Recycles Day Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Publix in Hillsboro Square, noon to 7 p.m., 150 S. Federal Highway. Attendees will take a pledge to recycle more, buy recycled products and help to reduce waste. Members of the city’s recycling division will be on hand to answer questions about the new recycling cart – what goes into it and how to earn points for the recycling incentive program. Lauderdale-By-The-Sea – The Town’s new fire engine will officially be placed into service Tuesday after it is blessed and town officials take part in a traditional ceremony where the truck will be “pushed” into the station. The event is set for 6:30 p.m. at the town’s fire station on Bougainvilla Drive adjacent to Town Hall, 4501 N. Ocean Drive. The public is invited to attend the ceremony. The town purchased the $325,000 fire engine pumper for the Volunteer Fire Department which provides fire suppression service in town. After local pastors and a rabbi bless the vehicle, the mayor and commissioners will clean the wheel wells and then symbolically push the 25-ton truck into the station while a firefighter/driver backs it up using the motor. The tradition of pushing a truck into the station dates to the 1800s, when horses pulled fire wagons. After returning from a fire, the horses would be unlatched, and community members would help firefighters push the wagon back into the station. For more information, call 954-640-4209.

In exchange, the city gets 7,424 square feet of private property for a public plaza outside the building. Commissioners unanimously approved a $324,260 contract with MBR Construction, Inc. for construction of the Oakland Station Plaza in front of the building along the north side of NE 38 Street. Calvin, Giordano & Associates was retained to design the plaza, including installation of landscape, hardscape, decorative light poles and pavers. Plans call for planting crepe myrtles and shrub beds along NE 38 Street and adding hearty vegetation similar to that already on NE 12 Avenue. An 8-foot-wide veranda will be added for bistro tables. The area could accommodate 24 tents or be used for food trucks. The plaza project will be funded as part of the $800,000 Redevelopment Capital [RCP] loan-to-grant funds budgeted for Fiscal year 2013 for NE 12 Avenue street-ends and the Oakland Station Plaza. A ground-breaking ceremony is set for 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26, at the Oakland Station Building, NE 38 Street and NE 12 Avenue.

Pompano Beach Fishing Pier Reopens partiallyThe Pompano Fishing Pier will partially re-open today after initial assessments have determined the pier is safe for public use. The far east octagon section will remain closed until the damaged railings have been replaced. An in-depth assessment of the long term life of the pier will be conducted in the future. RJ BoyleRJ BOYLE STUDIOSThe weather was perfect this week for the sail sh bite. We had offshore winds most of the week and elded numerous calls from boats catching between two and 20 sail sh per day. Some of the guys were slow trolling live baits out of the riggers and others were ying shing kites to catch the sail sh. Most guys sh goggle eyes or pilchards for their bait of choice but this week quite a few sail sh were caught on mullet. Loads of mullet have been migrating south along our coast. If you are low on funds or you just can’t nd any live bait, don’t be afraid to net a handful of mullet. Plenty of sh, not just sail sh, get caught on mullet all of the time. The best depth has been in 130 ft. of water and the best of the bite seemed to be right off of the Boynton Inlet. As for the sword sh, I shed on a boat out of Miami Beach Marina on Saturday. It was a great day. We caught a 400 lb. pumpkin sword sh. The sail sh bite is on in South FloridaRJ Boyle, left, and Jason Boyll proudly show off their latest catch.A pumpkin sword sh has salmon colored meat and is considered by some to be a delicacy. The color of the meat is caused by eating red deepwater shrimp. Let’s just say, I had some great meals this week. Until next time.
