The date and time are significant to voters in Pompano Beach as Fisher’s action eliminates the need for a special election to fill his seat should he be elected to the county commission Tuesday, Nov. 6. “This will allow city voters to choose a mayor to fill the remaining two years of my term,” said Fisher. There will be no additional costs to the taxpayers.” Neither will the city be without a mayor. Had Fisher not resigned, and wins the county seat, this city would have been without a mayor. And that would have called for a special election to elect a mayor. Three candidates are running for mayor: Vice Mayor Charlotte Burrie and Commissioners Rex Hardin and Mike Sobel. Hardin who had been seeking both his commission seat and the mayor’s position announced his withdrawal last week from his District 3 race. Hardin had earlier planned to seek reelection to his seat and later resign to run for mayor. With both resignations, no special elections will be required. Costs for local elections can be as much as $260,000. Hardin applauded the mayor’s decision as the right one. He said he will focus on his run for mayor. “The position of mayor is too important,” he said. Fisher said that the city will have to approve a resolution at its June 12 meeting to add the mayoral candidate names to the Nov. 6 ballot. Asked if he were endorsing anyone for the mayor’s seat, Fisher said he was not. “I will work with whoever wins that seat. In fact, you have to be able to work with everyone so that the ultimate winners are the residents and our constituents.” Fisher seeks the Broward County District 4 seat vacated by term limits of Commissioner Chip LaMarca. Broward County District 4 covers Deerfield Beach, Pompano Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Lighthouse Point, Sea Ranch Lakes, LauderdaleBy-The-Sea and parts of Fort Lauderdale and Oakland Park. Commissioner Mike Sobel joined Hardin in his approval of Fisher’s decision to resign. “Assuming that the city commission passes a resolution to add the mayoral candidates names on the Nov. 6 ballot, it means that a greater number of resident voters will participate in the election,” said Sobel. He added that a national election that includes Congress, a new governor and sate seats will be a big draw. “Out recent G.O. Bond was passed with 13 percent of the voters participating and of those, eight percent of the voters made the difference. Sobel did not support the bond. Sobel, an announced candidate for Pompano Beach Candidates for mayorMayor said he “ . wishes the mayor the best of luck in his run for the county commission. I look forward to working together with him when I am elected mayor.” Qualifying dates for the city’s mayoral candidates is open from June 18 to 20. HardinSobel Burrie


The Pelican 3 Friday, June 1, Wilton Manors hosts LGBT Pride Month with annual parade & festival By Brady NewbillPELICAN WRITERWilton Manors As June came to a close in 1969, social turbulence was reaching its boiling point in Greenwich Village, New York. A counter-culture grassroots uprising between the police and the LGBT community took place at a gay bar named Stonewall. Days of riots broke out, but those days served as a crucial moment in the birth of a greater movement for LGBT rights in the western world. In the years following, activist groups across the country began holding community-wide Pride marches each June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and create a sense of unity and visibility for their cause. Now closing in on a halfcentury later, the details of the original riots have largely faded from public memory while the Pride movement has grown enormous. Few communities represent the progress made for LGBT rights in the wake of the Stonewall Riots quite like that of Wilton Manors which holds its Stonewall Pride Parade & Festival on Saturday, June 16. In its 19th year, the Wilton Manors event is one of the largest in the country, regularly drawing over 30,000 attendees. This city is widely known for having one of the highest per capita LGBT populations in the country, giving its pride events a special significance compared to others in the area. “Over the years this festival has grown into a destination event that brings people from all different places and backgrounds together to celebrate the milestone achievements of the LGBT community,” says Wilton Manors Mayor Gary Resnick. A large market place with vendors and community organizers will open at 4 p.m. followed by the traditional Stonewall Pride parade along Wilton Drive, which begins at 5 p.m. This year’s grand marshal will be Chuck Panozzo, Wilton Manors resident, notable activist for LGBT rights and AIDS awareness, and founding member of the rock band Styx. Aside from the parade and street festival, businesses along Wilton Drive will all be alight with their own corresponding events which will include everything from food and drink specials to live music, dance parties and special performances and guest speakers. New to this year’s festival will be a special event on Friday, June 15 at Manor Complex titled “Our Night Out,”a theatrical celebration of the LGBT rights movement, headlined by a special Cirque-du-Soleil style performance produced by world-renowned director Jonathan Hawkins. The economic impact of the event in past years has measured upwards of $2 million. But this event is about much more than a local economic boost. For a community so symbolic to the LGBT movement as Wilton Manors, the Stonewall Pride Festival is both a celebration of nearly 50 years of progress and a commemoration of the turbulence that set the movement in motion. In recent years, attendees have experienced the tears of joy celebrating marriage equality in 2015 and the tears of sorrow mourning the Pulse massacre in 2016, both of which happened during Pride month (June).

4 The PelicanFriday, June 1, District 1 candidate Hudak’s focus is on the growth and infrastructureMarch Election 2019 Deer eld Beachsystems. Born in New York state, Hudak moved to South Florida with his family in 1970 and graduated from Coconut Creek High School. He and his wife Paula have five children. A founding member of the newly-formed Deerfield Beach Economic Development Council [DBEDC], Hudak sees the city as being “ideally positioned” for growth citing its proximity to airports, rail a high standard of living for residents.” Hudak is also concerned about crime in the city. Citing statistics furnished by Neighborhood Scout, he says the crime rate here is above average for the population and there is an especially high rate of car thefts. He would support providing law enforcement with the tools needed to do their job. He is in favor of the storm water fee recently initiated by the city saying the “50-year-old system needs upgrades.” Growth here will require investment in the infrastructure,” he said. “I want to be fiscally responsible and find ways to be cost effective,” he said, “while finding ways to enhance the city.” Besides the DBEDC, Hudak is active in Mission World [a veteran’s support group], CERT, COP, on the executive board of the Deerfield Beach Chamber of Commerce and a Kiwanian. The other announced candidate for this seat is local motel owner and investor Dan Herz. Commissioner Joe Miller is currently in the position. His term expires March 2019. By Judy WilsonPELICAN STAFFDeerfield Beach Economic growth and reducing the crime rate are two planks in the platform of Mike Hudak, 53, who has announced his intention to run for the District 1 City Commission seat in March. Hudak, an air force veteran, opened a campaign bank account in April and has hired a campaign manager. In the early stages of this election cycle, Hudak says his intent is to “meet people and listen to the issues.” A resident of the city since 1998, Hudak has been the human resource director of SHL Pharma since 2014. He holds a degree in business administration from Florida Atlantic University.

The Pelican 5 Friday, June 1, Election 2018 Pompano BeachBuilding for a young population is McGee’s campaign message By Anne SirenPELICAN STAFFPompano Beach Andrea McGee, a Pompano Beach native, says District 1 is “. . healthy and on a path to be really amazing.” McGee wants to be part of that path to “amazing” which is why she recently announced that she will run this Nov. 6 for the District 1 seat. This is not McGee’s first run for office. She lost a house seat in Congress to Ted Deutch in 2016. McGee is a graduate of Cardinal Gibbons and later earned a bachelor of science degree in communications from the University of Miami. McGee sees her youth as an asset. She is 35. “I see future greatness here. It’s a place for younger families,” she says. adding that an electric trolley would reduce pollution and further reduce vehicle traffic. Another job-producer, says McGee, is the CRA’s Innovation District, a mixeduse project planned for the western part of the city from I-95 to Dixie Highway of 30 acres fronting on West Atlantic Boulevard. McGee has taken note of the “conflict on the dais” at commission meetings and says that making issues “clear and simple” would encourage more public participation. She says that the city and District 1 need a commissioner with more of a “development acumen rather than one with a legal background. McGee’s opponent, John Geer, is a retired U.S. Navy JAG attorney. As owner of McGee Real Estate in Fort Lauderdale, she also has a unique insight into what the younger families are seeking. “My clients feel that they would have to send their children to private schools,” indicating the negative ratings of some public schools here. But she also sees this city as one with an economic opportunity for those young families. She supports the East Atlantic Transportation Oriented Transit Corridor [EATOC] district, where jobs and affordable housing will attract younger generations. “It will be a business incubator,” she says. As to the traffic issues regarding the EATOC, McGee says, “If public transit works, the number of cars on the Boulevard will decrease,” District 1 Andrea McGee The Pelican delivers to your home or business in our readership areas.

The Shrine, located at Frank McDonough Park, honors all the branches of the U.S. military as well as the city’s firefighters and police officers. It also honors United States Marine Dale Sloan Wilkinson, the only Lighthouse Point resident to die in combat. Wilkinson was killed in Quang Tri, Vietnam in August of 1969. “He made it 20 days [after arriving in Vietnam] before he died. He was our guy,” said Chuck McLaughlin, a Marine Corps veteran who also served in Vietnam. The memorial was a collaboration between McLaughlin, Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Ryan Kolb, a member of Boy Scout Troop 238, and others in the city. The weather remained a threat throughout the services, but the storm remained in abeyance, a condition that did not go unnoticed by the clergy, “We thank you, God, for keeping the rain to yourself,” said Monsignor Willie Dever of Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.

The commission has already voted a resolution in support of the lawsuit, but Parness said this week he will urge his fellow board members to become official participants. “I want us to be a part of it,” he said. “The state can’t regulate what can be used in our city. “This is not a second amendment issue,” Parness said. “The Supreme Court upheld the ban on assault weapons for 10 years.” The lawsuit challenges the state’s right to prohibit cities from passing gun legislation and penalizing any local official who votes for such legislation by levying a $5,000 fine and possible 2020 ballot that would outlaw the AR-15s. To get on the ballot, Ban Assault Weapons needs 766,220 signatures from voters in at least 14 of the state’s 27 congressional districts. Managing the effort is Ben Pollack who successfully brought the legalization of medical marijuana to the Florida ballot in 2016. Also at work on the assault weapons ban is Boynton Beach businessman and Army veteran Don Cleveland. Several years ago Cleveland was a candidate for commission in Deerfield Beach.

Federal Highway, a stately mansion where tens of thousands of persons have gathered more than once to honor a friend or family member who has died. In the large chapel, they met old friends again. In that room they swapped their own stories about the person they had come to honor and celebrate; they laughed and cried and prayed together. If a house can hold together all of those memories of love and the hope of eternity, it would be this house, Kraeer Funeral Home. But now the funeral home will move to Forest Lawn, 200 W. Copans Rd., and many will miss this house which has stood for more than six decades, and where its staff is always ready to meet the needs of grief and final services. A house is mere bricks and mortar, but the spirit of Kraeer Funeral Home will continue at its new address. While its landmark presence will be missed, the community will not lose those persons who have comforted them in grief over the years. The staff today is the same staff that has been there for years, and many have come to find new friendships with each of them. Peter J. Manfredi, Jr. funeral director and Cardinal Gibbons graduate has family ties that reach back to the popular restaurant of the ’50’s, Tropical Acres on Federal Highway. Marge Muth, director of community relations, remembers when Federal Highway was a two-lane road. “We’ve all been here more than 20 years, and the founder R. Jay Kraeer’s philosophy. That philosophy began in 1952 when Kraeer and his wife Lorraine arrived in Pompano Beach. He called this younger town a “No Man’s Land.” One person said that Jay had arrived with a few hundred dollars and a mortuary science degree from Cincinnati; that man saw little hope for Jay. But Jay also had five years as a pilot with the First 500 U.S. Airborne Troops during WWII. He knew what he wanted; he had been trained for it, and he knew how to be successful. He became very active in civic groups such as Rotary, Elks, Gold Coast Shrine Club and the Coral Ridge Country Club. Ken Stolar, family service counselor, remembers his entrance to Kraeer over 20 years ago. “My job after attending mortuary school was as a member of the support staff; I washed cars; worked visitations and did anything that needed to be done. Mr. Kraeer had a high standard of service; above board and over the top.” Manfredi, who understands every part of this business recalls how Jay chose baby blue and white colors for the hearses and had the staff wear white business suits at funerals. “We called ourselves See KRAEER on page 9Landmark funeral home prepares to move its services to Copans Road R.

Manfredi admired Jay’s business ethics and his business wisdom. “He was innovative by opening multiple locations,” he said. Kraeer Funeral Home was also very active in charity fund-raising events. His service to the community was widely known and appreciated. In 2006, Kraeer merged with a national firm, Dignity Memorial. The transition did not change the Kraeer standards or ethics. Manfredi explains that being part of a national firm is a good thing for the persons with pre-planning arrangements, which can be extended to any Dignity funeral service company throughout the nation. “We are part of one of the largest funeral companies in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. It’s better for our clients; all preplanning needs can be transferred,” he says. “And there will be no changes with this move other than being in a different [and larger] location. None of our services will change or be interrupted,” Manfredi says. “ Those services include all aspects of funeral needs, including access to a removal team, crematorium, cemeteries and arrangements for scattering cremated remains at sea.

In 2010, he received the Broward County Fire Chiefs Association Life Time Achievement Award. Mathie first encountered underwater adventures while instructing a group of dive instructors for the Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) on their private island at Great Stirrup Cay, located in the Berry Islands in the Bahamas. This was an outreach program lasting many years through Broward College and of exploration and created a passion for underwater hunting. After retirement, he created Chiefy, LLC in order to write Catching the BUG, The Comprehensive Guide to Catching the Spiny Lobster and Catching the Spear-it! The ABC’s of Spearfishing. Both books serve as guides for successful underwater hunting. its goal was to have the dive instructors become Emergency Medical Technicians.

Fire Chief Stephen Krivjanik announced the news at a meeting of the city commission, as the city observed Emergency Medical Services Week. Braun was recognized for his dedication, commitment to professionalism and his knowledge of life-saving skills. He was cited for his efforts in saving the life of a woman in a kayaking accident. The rescue occurred on March 5, when a resident who was dropping by the station heard someone screaming but couldn’t determine where the sound was coming from. She knocked on the door of Station 87 at 21 Avenue and 39 Street. Firefighters determined the screams were coming from a nearby canal, and Braun was the first to respond and enter the water. “A young lady was kayaking. The kayak capsized, and she had no idea how to swim,” Chief Krivjanik said. She was stuck under the boat and seagrape vegetation. “We couldn’t see her, but we could hear her. The only way to rescue her was to enter the water blindly, and Keith was first in the water,” the chief said. Krivjanik presented Braun his award for his valor and dedication. And he commended the team from Station 87 who assisted in the rescue. “The entire team makes these efforts and saves every day,” he said.

Under the direction of Kenny Lawrence, who came to the city from the Special Olympics organization, Buddy Camp will be located out of the Highlands Recreation Center for ages 13 – 21. It is limited to 20 summer campers. Enrollment is ongoing at Constitution Park, 2841 W. Hillsboro Blvd. Transportation to Highlands Rec Center, 511 NE 44 St., is included in the $200 tuition. The camp is an expansion of a program that started last year under the director of former PAL Director Butch Santy. Offered then was Buddy Kickball and Buddy Basketball, both held at Oveta McKeithen Recreation Complex. Lawrence, who has a deep background in helping disabled kids, now has a broader vision for the program. Although the program is still in the formative stages, he already has a full calendar of events for summer including pool parties, a pirate cruise, fishing and bowling and even yoga. For fall he is working on creating sensory activities, socialization, inclusion and work programs.

The Pelican 13 Friday, June 1, Deer eld Beach’s Antonio’s Restaurant remains a popular destination for lovers of tasty Italian fare By Malcolm McClintockPELICAN WRITERAntonio’s Ristorante Cove Shopping Center 1636 SE 3rd Court Deer eld Beach 954-427-4871Situated within walking distance of the Intracoastal waterway, Antonio’s has been an iconic fixture in Deerfield Beach for over 5 decades. New proprietors Kevin Bergman and Chef Anthony Morace have maintained the core of the traditional menu while adding a few of their own unique culinary touches. “I worked for the previous owner Alex Poulos. I was glad to have the opportunity to continue serving the community by providing the best Italian food in town,” says the indefatigable Kevin who can be found hard at work 7 days a week. “Our guests truly appreciate our attention to detail and our big portions.” For the lunchtime crowd, the “2 slices of pizza and a soda” special is a perennial favorite. Sandwich aficionados will relish fresh hot subs such the parmesan sausage, chicken, eggplant or veal. The cold version with ham, salami or turkey and cheese is also a reliable choice. Other noteworthy offerings include the fettucine alfredo, chicken parmesan, homemade [Left ]-Co-owner Kevin Bergman Shows off one of Antonio’s famous pizzas.

Pasta lovers will greatly appreciate authentic recipes such as the bacon-laden angel hair carbonara, the meaty sausage Calabrese, the gnocchi with red sauce or the linguine a la puttanesca with tomatoes, black olives, capers and basil. “We are also well known for our fresh fish,” asserts Kevin with absolute certainty. “It depends on availability but generally we are always ready to serve up favorites such as snapper, salmon and Mahi Mahi.” Indeed, seafood enthusiasts can also enjoy various maritime treats including large shrimp Fra Diavolo, linguine in red or white clam sauce, shrimp scampi, mussels marinara or the always popular zuppa di pesce loaded with fish chunks, scungilli, calamari, mussels, clams and shrimp. And connoisseurs will recognize Antonio’s as purveyors of truly outstanding pizza. “The margarita pizza is a customer favorite,” asserts Chef Anthony. “And we only use the famous Grande cheese.” The formal dining room is the ideal spot for private parties or corporate events under the majestic giant mural of Sardinia. The casual area of the restaurant is perfect for the kids. And for a sweet conclusion to an Antonio’s outing, the homemade tiramisu is a must-try. -Buon appetito! Antonio’sContinued from page 15

Sean Harris, 27, of Fort Lauderdale was arrested May 22 by the Broward Sheriff’s Office. According to Traffic Homicide Investigation detectives, Harris was going 120 mph in a 45 mph zone when he crashed into the scooter that carried Crystal Blazek, 34, of Oakland Park and Jeffrey Harris, 53, of Oakland Park. Just after midnight April 7, a Dodge Charger R/T driven by the defendant was traveling east in the 100 block of E. Commercial Boulevard when it crashed into the westbound Yamaha scooter as the scooter was making a left turn onto Northeast First Terrace. The scooter’s driver, Jeffrey Harris, and his passenger, Blazek, were ejected on impact. BSO deputies, along with Oakland Park Fire Rescue, responded to the scene. Fire Rescue took the scooter occupants to Broward Health Medical Center where Blazek later died. Harris had non life threatening injuries. The suspect didn’t report any injuries at the time. Anyone with further information is asked to contact BSO THI Detective Michael Wiley at 954-3214205.


16 The PelicanFriday, June 1, one of the two parcels to become commercial. Residents of the area opposed the changes. The site previously contained houses that were demolished after Metzger purchased the land. One parcel has been operating as a storage yard for some time. City and county land use designations aren’t consistent. Approving the application would have corrected that, City Planner Daniel Keester-O’Mills reported. The property is in the Northwest CRA area. Board member Jocelyn Jackson said she had visited the area. “The foul odor is disgusting. The walls have stains. The trees and landscaping look horrible. And the traffic is a hazard to children.” She said safety comes first, adding that residents would be opening their back doors to a wall that is not maintained and a property has numerous code violations. Jackson said she would vote no on the request. City staff recommended approval with conditions, including one that access to the site would be from MLK Boulevard, not from NW 3 Street. Planning consultant Leigh Kerr said the change would have minimal impact on the residential area and that Metzger would bring back an amended site plan with a wall and landscaping to provide a buffer. “We support staff recommendation, but we want the neighbors to be comfortable,” Kerr said. “We may offer to table this for a couple months to formalize some of these elements.” Board member Carla Coleman noted, “It’s tricky to buffer between industrial and residential areas. She asked what the city code requires for a four-story building across from single-family homes. Coleman asked if the applicant had had meetings with the community. Kerr said they met with a nearby church bishop, and they held a community meeting but no one came. “No wall will keep the smell and dust out,” said resident Valerie Fuller, who lives nearby. “There’s not enough space to go in and out, and traffic is already coming on 15 Avenue. Small trucks can’t come in and out at the same time.” Fuller said, “ We don’t want any more industrial,” questioning why the area was ever zoned industrial. “I can’t sleep because of the noise. There are plenty of industrial areas in Pompano Beach. Our parents fought for that to be a residential area. We don’t want more industrial in our community.” Coleman, a planner herself, said she understands the need to make use and land use agree. But she said when NW 15 Street was vacated promises were made with the community. “Now we have a request to turn residential lots into industrial, and that’s a whole different issue. This is a further intrusion into the neighborhood. Nothing good is going to happen until there is clear direction from this board and staff and a neighborhood meeting,” Coleman added. Board member Rhonda Eaton said, “That area should never have been industrial in the first place.” She didn’t support tabling the request for the land use change. Board chair Fred Stacer said air quality issues need to be solved by code, and holes in the wall are code issues that should be dealt with. Board member Tony Hill said the application is not compatible with the neighborhood. He also was not in favor of tabling the matter. A motion to postpone the application until July failed by a vote of 5-2. The board then voted unanimously to deny the application. The applicant can now proceed to the city commission or withdraw the application. Land rejectionContinued from page 1

22 The Pelican Friday, June 1, Catching the Ocean ViewTime for boaters to dust o those hurricane plans By Jim “Chiefy” MathiePELICAN WRITERAnd it begins. . hurricane season of cially starts today, June 1. However sub-tropical storm Alberto arrived a little earlier than usual to jump start the season. As if last year’s landfall of Hurricane Irma wasn’t enough to catch our attention, it’s time to dust off those hurricane plans. Let’s face it, we haven’t been paying attention since Wilma in 2006. It’s common to put hurricanes out of minds that are cluttered with other things. But if you look at the shape of our state, it’s an upside-down left thumb, sticking into the Atlantic Ocean. South Florida juts out even further, potentially in the path of most every cone put out by the National Hurricane Center. If you’re a boater, diver or sherman like me, weather is on your mind all the time. So, you should know the three elements of a hurricane like they are written on the back of your hand; Rain, Wind and Storm Surge. If you’re a boater, it’s time to make sure your bilge pumps are working and your batteries are charged to activate your pumps when needed. Also, it’s a good idea to keep your deck scupper holes clear of debris so the rain water can drain out. When hurricane winds threaten, it’s necessary to have a plan for your boat. In my case, I take it off the sidelift and put it on the trailer to be secured to the ground via a series of straps and tie-downs. A lot of folks place their boats inside a hurricane resistant building, but check your insurance policy for what is required. Or in the case of many boaters, it’s tie it off in the center of the canal and anchor it. Owners of larger vessels often preplan their safe harbor and dockage inland to avoid storm surge. Storm surge isn’t normal for our area, as it depends on the direction and intensity of the storm. The underwater topography here keeps the threat of storm surge to a minimum, however, recent sea rise has contributed to some additional localized ooding. In the case of the Florida Keys, as we saw during Hurricane Irma, residents were impacted greatly by storm surge. Even Miami and the Gulf of Mexico along Florida’s western coast including the panhandle now have a tremendous risk of storm surge. As we saw during Irma, traveling to another part of the state to run from the storm’s track isn’t a wise move. The aftermath of a storm is always a concern as it was with Hurricane Irma. Limited electricity and provisions are items we need to plan for if we want to survive. Having Alberto visit a little early wasn’t a bad thing. It drew attention to what’s important. If you’re a boater, diver or sherman, being hurricane-prepared is just another part of your plan. Hurricanes Harvey Aug. 23 -30]; Irma [Aug. 30 Sept. 11]; Marie [Sept 16 30] and Nate [Oct. 5-8] These storm names have been retired by the U.N. World Meteorological Organization.

Fishing report Tuna TangoBy RJ BoylePELICAN ANGLER The shing has been ridiculously good even though it has been rough. Earlier this week we took a trip to board Outpost. Our goal was to catch black n tuna, and man were we successful. In two hours we boated four black n tuna, eight big king sh and a few mahi-mahi. We trolled our baits extra far back for the tunas. We shed two planer rods, one 400 feet back and one 200 feet back behind the boat. This was double the length of our usual spread. Tuna can be extremely boat shy so get those rigs way back! Bonito strips with crystal sea witches was the ticket. Get tight, RJJerry Hughes from Caribbean Canvas straining with a couple of nice tuna.
