The Blessing of the Fleet sponsored by the Pompano Beach Centennial, will
be hosted by St. Martin's Episcopal Church of Pompano Beach on Saturday,
May 24 from 2 to 5 p.m.
The Blessing of the Fleet is a centuries-old tradition originating in southern
European fishing communities as those that take to the sea in commercial and
pleasure craft alike receive a blessing from the Bishop.
Today, the tradition continues as those who fish commercially and for sport
seek blessings on their vessels for an abundant catch, as well as those who take
to the waterways for recreation who seek safety upon the water and a safe return
home. The free event is open to the public on land and sea.
Boats are requested to line up by 2:45 p.m. just south of the Hillsboro Inlet.
Broward Sheriff's Office Marine Units and the Coast Guard Auxiliary will
escort vessels along the Intracoastal Waterway parade route to St. Martin's Epis-
copal Church for the blessing ceremony. For more information please contact
Gwen Leys, event chair at 954-942-6816.

Caryl Berner, the person
who led the move to ban
prayer at commission meet-

ordained a minister by the
Universal Life Church Mon-

are asked to give the opening

name Lay Sister Zelda for her
ministry and added that the

dress she wore, was her "spiri-
Berner then passed out
flip flops to the commission-
ers signifying their reversal of
the ban on clergy-led prayer,
and when she exceeded the
three- minute time limit for
public requests, was escorted
from the chamber by Police
Chief Jay Fernandez at the
comments, Barbara Miranda,
who attends every commis-
sion meeting as a "Raging
Granny" against the war in
Iraq, asked to be included on
the clergy. She said that as a
Humanist she would request
a moment of silence when
called upon. She will, she
added, "relinquish my Granny
hat" on those occasions.
Later in the meeting as
the commission moved to
adopt a policy governing
clergy-led prayer, semantics
became the issue. As drawn
by Maurodis, the policy calls
for the one- minute prayers
to be "non proselytizing in
nature and non-disparaging to
any particular faith or belief
system." It includes the words
"clergy of different faiths"
and "houses of worship." In
light of Berner's and Miran-
da's requests, Militello asked
that those phrases be further
Poitier insisted that the
prayers be non-sectarian and
said the commission's action
has opened the way for sectar-
ian prayer. "We had no busi-
ness going back to clergy-led
prayer," she said.
Tuesday, Rev. George
Bowles gave the invocation
and confronted his religious
preference saying, "I pray in
Jesus name," a phrase com-
missioners found acceptable
because it didn't demand the
same of everyone in the room.
As the discussion became
more heated, an exasperated
Mayor Al Capellini said,
"There was no challenge
(on prayer) for 80 years.
There was never this insanity.
We are wasting our time. I'm
tired of the same crap over
and over again. We decide $7
million contracts in 10 min-
utes. This has been going on
"I believe in prayer," the
Mayor continued. "We need
all the help we can get. This
is the craziest commission I
have ever worked with."
In April, at the request of
dozens of people who have
been protesting the ban on
clergy-led prayer since Febru-
ary, the commission voted to
reintroduce the practice.
In October 2007, in re-
sponse to threats of an ACLU
lawsuit initiated by Berner,
the commission assigned the
mayor the duty of giving the
invocation that opens their

"Early in December last year I
was helping a friend of mine, Toni
Gelman, wrap Christmas presents for
children living at Broward Outreach
Center," Judith Anderson explains. "I
came to visit the Center to see what
it was all about. I was immediately
hooked because I believe in what they
are doing here and recognized that I
could fill a need for them."
They were a perfect fit. Broward
Outreach needed someone to manage
the used clothing store.
Anderson had run a non profit
thrift shop for 12 years in Portland,
Maine. "Judith made a big change in
our community," admits Nina Corbe,
community development associate.
"She named it her boutique, cleaned
and organized the merchandise and
turned it into the residents' clothing
store. She still needs several volun-
teers to assist her so that the store can
be open for more hours."
"It's true. I could do with some
help," Anderson says. "I began volun-
teering in January, and I'm here two or
three days a week for four hours each
time. My job as I see it is to serve the
residents their required clothing needs.
When they enter the program, they
are given a start up wardrobe. Their
needs change as they progress. They
come in to the shop with vouchers
which indicate what they are entitled
to get each time they shop. They
eventually will need job and church
wardrobes. The residents are respon-
sible for their own wardrobe upkeep."
The store stocks clean, donated
men's and women's clothing. Chil-
dren's clothing is handled elsewhere.
Anderson says some of her big-
gest needs are for men and women's
underwear, belts and shoes, especially
large sizes for men. The inventory that
seems to need constant replenishing
includes men's work pants, jeans, t-
shirts, sport and dress shirts.
The residents know when the
doors are open, and they show up to
They gravitate to Anderson be-
cause she has an upbeat attitude and is
quick to give a hug.
"I get to know and care about
these people," she says. " I try to do
onto them as I would have them do
onto me if the situation were reversed.

Calypso gas pipeline idea will
fail if leadership unites
We must keep the proposed submerged
pipeline away from the Florida coast
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Mayor Roseann Minnet has taken a clear posi-
tion on a proposed natural gas pipeline that could be constructed no more than
10 miles off the coast of this small community-a community that depends on
The Calypso pipeline, a venture of Suez North America, will offer tankers
a floating port to deposit natural gas that would be liquefied through a refrigera-
tion process. The gas would be then be transported through the pipeline to Port
Everglades and then to two other stations in Broward County.
The newspaper is not the first one to call the idea insane.
South Florida breezes don't need to be contaminated with leaking gas. Port
Everglades has just experienced the tragic deaths of three men who succumbed
to a gas leak at the port.
The danger of this pipeline is not imaginary.
Only Gov. Charlie Crist can stop this dangerous project from becoming a
reality off our shoreline.
Fort Lauderdale commissioners have approved a resolution objecting to the
Hopefully Lauderdale-By-The-Sea commissioners will follow suit.
We hope they can unite in zero tolerance solidarity this Tuesday.
Broward County residents know all about the fuel shortage. Now our lead-
ership from towns, cities and counties up to the state and federal levels must
look to renewable resources for energy.
This is where the funding needs to be.
A vote in favor of this project is tantamount to an eventual death sentence
to the economy and very possibly to the very lives of the people who live on the
Mayor Minnet must call upon Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach and Light-

Do graduates really
Education isn't just a ticket to a better
job.It's a vital safeguard of democracy
By Diane Cameron
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
It is the season of commencement speeches. High schools and colleges
near and far are celebrating their graduates by hosting celebrity speechmakers.
We listen for sound bites from the Bills - Clinton, Cosby, and Gates - along
with CEOs apdcnovelists, college presidents, and politicians.
Most of their talks inspire, but many have also adopted an underlying
message that links education, graduation, and material success. It's a message
that unwittingly reduces the worth of an education to the expected wages it can
bring. It sees tuition not as a ticket to a liberated mind but as a down payment
on future income. In our excitement for the graduates, we've put the emphasis
in the wrong place.
It is true that for many people education is an inoculation against poverty,
the guarantee of a good job, and a boost up the ladder of success. But as we
look around the world, we are reminded that what that ladder leans against is
America's Founding Fathers knew that an educated citizenry was the only
means of preserving a true democracy. We get confused sometimes thinking
that the core of our democratic process is about how many groups are repre-
sented or assuring majority rule. Democracy is a means, not an end.
Democracy is not about "the majority." It's about debate. First adopted by
the rational Greeks, democracy is about arguing freely to arrive at the wisest
and most sensible conclusion for a community or a country.
"Majority rule" is merely the method of deciding the outcome of the de-
Rigorous debate - not just sound bites - requires critical thinking; hence
the crucial role of education.
This year's commencement speeches will include platitudes about how
lucky we are to be Americans. And we are. But our freedom is not guaranteed.
Living in a democracy is not a right that comes gift-wrapped just for be-
ing born at this geographic address. You have to earn it. And the capacity for
intelligent and civil debate - along with a commitment to free speech - is the
minimum fee to purchase citizenship.
This idea is especially important today, as we are enjoying a longer period
of debate in this year's presidential campaign.
Thomas Jefferson, the chief author of the Declaration of Independence,
knew that preserving America's precious form of government would require
educated, thoughtful, and discerning citizens.
Education mattered to him and the other framers so much because they
understood that education would be the constant and stable ground under the
new government, not an escalator to lift Americans to big jobs and high-status
They valued education not so that the United States would someday lead
the world's economy, but to ensure longevity for the form of government they
were birthing. It was central to their vision of future generations enjoying a
genuine constitutional democracy.
Jefferson wrote: "If a nation expects it can be ignorant and free, in a state
of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
It's easy, amid our pressured lives, to forget how fragile our democracy is.
We're too busy to watch the news, to vote, to write our leaders. But this very
good life that keeps us too busy to be good citizens is at risk.
This year, especially with war, an election, and the economic crisis before
us, we get to see why education is crucial to maintaining a truly democratic
form of government.
Education can and should empower citizens to participate. If a diploma
can help graduates get a better job or make more money, that's a bonus. At the
heart of mastering reading, writing, and rhetoric is the duty and privilege of
safeguarding a genuinely democratic way of life.

Petitions in opposition
to the plans for the liquified
natural gas port have been
placed in nearly every condo
along the Gait, according
to Bill Claire, a resident of
Plaza South. He is leading
the opposition effort with his
wife Theresa, Dr. David and
Barbara Marshal and Plaza
Petitions will be sent to
Gov. Charlie Crist, who can
approve or disapprove the
project after a public hearing.
The federal government is
expected to publish the final
environmental impact state-
ment on the project early this
summer. Opponents also are
contacting state legislators
and representatives in Con-
Florida House Major-
ity Leader Ellyn Bogdanoff
said she is planning to speak
to the governor about local
On Tuesday, LBTS
Mayor Roseann Minnet plans
to present a resolution in op-
position to the project at the
town commission meeting in
Fort Lauderdale com-
missioners passed a similar
resolution this week opposing
Minnet said the resolu-
tion will say, in part, "We are
opposed to construction of the
Calypso deepwater port and
pipeline. Charlie Crist should
not approve construction of
this pipeline. And the federal
government should not ap-
prove construction of the port
According to the resolu-
tion, the Calypso Project in-
cludes untested and hazardous
elements, including a storage
and processing facility for liq-
uefied natural gas. The facility
will be located 10 miles off-
shore with a projected arrival
bi-weekly of tankers each of
which will deposit liquified
natural gas into the facility.
Minnet said she is distrib-
uting packages of information
and petitions to the condos to
educate people on this project.
"I want to protect the health
and safety of the residents of
this is just not safe. I can't
support it. If an accident takes
* place, it could obliterate our
town. I'm not going to expose
our citizens to that kind of
risk," Minnet said.
Minnet said she under-
stands the importance of
energy needs. "We need to
harness windpower and solar
power and work on alterna-
tive energy sources that won't
disrupt our natural resources."
The mayor has invited
Bill Claire from Plaza South
and Dan McGinnis, vice pres-
ident of Suez, the company
that owns Calypso, to speak
on the pros and cons of the is-
sue at Tuesday's meeting.
In the meantime, she said
she is going door to door in
LBTS in the weeks ahead
to talk to people about the
project and encourage them to
register their opposition with
Governor Crist. "I will com-
mit the full range of resources
which are available in this
town to fight this project. This
pipeline doesn't belong here,"
Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee
said he has talked to McGin-
nis and told him, "I am not
supporting this under any cir-
cumstances. I told him it has
about as much chance of get-
ting support as snow falling in

The Single Gourmet brings singles of all ages
together to enjoy fine dining in tri-county area
By Phyllis J. Neuberger
The idea of breaking bread with
friends is as old as human history so
it's no surprise that the concept of
Single Gourmet attracted Barry Adel-
son over 20 years ago.
He's been successfully running
the dining club in South Florida ever
since. He explains, "Our objective is
to get single people together in a no
hassle environment that is completely
different from the bar scene, singles
dances and internet dating services."
There are currently over 2,600
members in Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach counties, and their ages run the
gamut from 20s to 80s. Members pay
$99 a year to participate in as few or as
many dining and other events as they
Adelson says, " We sponsor at
least one dinner a week, as well as oc-
casional wine tasting, cultural events,
plays, travel and more spread through-
out the month. Every member receives
a calendar of events each month."
Typical of the restaurants of-
fered to club members are places like
Brooks, Flavors of Italy, Tiramisu,
Primavera and the Federal Grille. Four
and five course meals are served, usu-
ally with wine.
Adelson estimates "Anywhere
from 40 to 140 members attend which
allows us to get a group price rate.
Cost varies from place to place but
usual runs between $45 to $60 and that
includes tax and tip. We usually sit at
round tables of 10, and we group our
members according to age and inter-
ests. It works out amazingly well."
Asked why people join, Adelson
says, "The reasons are many. We are
Frank Minutello, Barbara Tenzer, Barry Adelson and Sharon Blasius.
all single. Many of our members love
to dine in fine restaurants but are reluc-
tant to do so alone. Others are looking
to network in business. Still others are
looking for love, new friends and fi-
nally just a change of scenery, conver-
sation and faces."
With a smile he adds, "There have
been romances, and over the years I
have been to quite a few weddings.
Where new friends choose to take a
relationship is up to them, not us. We
are strictly arranging a lovely dinner
Pausing for a moment, Adelson
said, "It's also true that we do meet a

themselves suddenly single because of

New ordinance sets rules

them they are "one person

passage of a new group home

As is so often the case,
sometimes we don't appreci-
ate that which is right under
our very noses! Because I
have just become a Master
Gardener, I am just NOW
finding out what a fantastic
resource our University of
Florida Extension Office is.
I wish I had known about it
sooner. It would have saved
me valuable time and money.
So, just what is The Exten-
sion? It's one of those terms
that we know means some-
thing important, but we're not
quite sure what it is.
The Extension is a col-
laborative effort between the
County and the University of
Florida. IFAS as it's known,
is an acronym for Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sci-
Rather convoluted, what
it basically means is that
through the sharing of the
most up-to-date science based
research from our University
System, we are extended this
knowledge for FREE!
Funded by the County and
the State, we are given access
to this wealth of information.
And did I mention, it's FREE?
I am going to give you the
web address, and if you're a
smart person, (which I know
you are because you're still
reading this), you will book-
mark it immediately. Here is
EDU or you can go to: www.
And for those who don't
have access to computers, you
can call: 954-370-3725.
I know, it's a mouthful,
but once you've tapped into
this amazing resource, you
will remember it! EDIS
stands for Electronic Data
Information Source, and that,
Type in any gardening
related topic (as well as many
other topics), and you will
have the most up-to-date
scientifically based material
at your fingertips. Documents
will download in PDF format
to make printing easy and af-
So, check it out; I'm confi-
dent that this information will
lead you to solving your per-
sonal bugaboos in the garden.
Meet me... I'll be there too.

Pompano Beach, Past Tense
At the comer of Flagler Avenue and NE Second Street there is a ma-
sonry building with the name "Belvill" on it. It was constructed in 1934
by T. Sol Belvill to replace an earlier, wooden building (shown in the
photograph) that had burned down.
It is not clear when the original Belvill building was constructed, but it
was before the First World War. The old building housed the U.S. Post
Office with commercial space on the ground floor and hotel rooms on
Following the fire that destroyed the wooden building, the Post Office
moved to the Masonic Lodge building on the south side of Pompano
Canal. That building, just east to today's City Hall, was recently de-
molished to make way for a new library.
