term limits on
By Judy Wilson
Hillsboro Beach voters will decide
in March 2009 whether to impose
term limits on their commissioners,
eight consecutive years the maximum
service or keep the current system of
no term limits.
If approved, the amendment to the
town charter also changes the super
majority vote required to fire the city
clerk to a simple majority.
The major revision to the 70-year-
old charter, that the town clerk be
replaced by a city manager, failed b\
a 3 to 2 vote. The issue drew a lively
public response. Many residents urged
the commission to make no changes to
a government they say already works
well. Others believed a manager
would save time and money and move
agenda items faster.
Said Claire Shubert, chair of the
Revision Committee, "Life is different
than when the charter was written. The
town's business is complicated. With
a manager we wouldn't need so many
outside sources ... we would have
Another speaker complained that
currently "issues come up that can't
be dealt with until the next meeting.
There are many delays [a manager]
would save time."
But many speakers were content
with the status quo, fearing that step-
ping up the position would mean more
bureaucracy and more expense to the
town. Said one, "It has worked well
for many years. I resent your delegat-
ing your trust to someone else."
Said another, "There could be
moreexpenses, more staff. A chain of
command frightens me."
Wrapping up the opinions of
those against the amendment, Jimmy
Lambert, a resident, said, "The town

Judges select 2008 Pompano
holiday boat parade winners
SPECIAL TO THE PELICAN
With close to 40 beautifully deco-
rated boats, it was a difficult decision
for the judges to pick the winners of
the 46th Annual Pompano Beach Holi-
day Boat Parade.
Held on Sunday, Dec. 14, the
decorated boats navigated north on the
Intracoastal Waterway from Pompano
Beach through Lighthouse Point,
Hillsboro Beach and Deerfield Beach.
"The Pompano Beach Chamber of
Commerce would like to thank all the
captains and crews that participated in
this year's parade," said Parade Com-
mittee Chair Gwen Leys.
"This year's parade had its own
challenges, but the smiles on the
thousands of residents and visitors
who come to watch.make it all worth
while," she continued.
Leys announced awards went to
the following entries:

Rules to fill
By Judy Wilson
The luster on two city commis-
sion appointments dimmed Tuesday
when commissioners agreed those
named to fill vacancies created by the
resignation of Commissioner Steve
Gonot and the suspension of Mayor Al
Capellini could not be candidates in
the March 10 election.
To insure this, they also agreed not
to select the two replacements until
January 13, postponing the regularly

The alleged activity oc-
curred from January 2003
through December 2007
when Capellini's firm, Crain
Atlantis Engineering, held a
$16,500 contract with Deer-
field Park Developers, or
DPD, and successive owners
to plat the property at Natura
Boulevard and Natura Avenue
and provide development
According to the affidavit
filed by investigator Angelo
Pazienza, when the plat came
before the Deerfield Beach
City Commission on June 3,
2003, Capellini voted his ap-
proval but did not disclose his
interest in the matter, nor did
he file the required Conflict
of Interest form. At that point,
Atlantis had received $10,000
from DPD and no further pay-
ment was due until the plat
Florida Statutes state that
no municipal officer shall vote
in an official capacity on any
measure that results in private
gain. The Statute requires
officials to state their interest
and file a specific form prior
to the vote.
The investigator also
charges that the mayor at-
tempted to influence the
approval process here by
downplaying the signifi-
cance of the plat application.
Natura residents, protesting
the development of the office
complex, were told according
to the complaint, it was "just

sion for site plan approval on

Although the mayor did
not vote on the site plan, he
also did not disclose that he
had signed off on documents
that moved the entrance to the
office complex from the busy
Natura Boulevard to the resi-
dential Natura Avenue, saying
that it was a county decision.
After the plat was ap-
proved at city and county
levels, the mayor's company
held contracts through 2007
to provide structural, engi-
neering and environmental
services for the project. His
firm now owns and works out
of one of the office buildings
in the complex.
Capellini was removed
from office by the governor
Gonot, 52, a District 4
commissioner and Capellini's
opponent in the March may-
oral election, resigned his seat
last week prior to being arrest-
ed on felony counts of grand
theft and official misconduct.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement, or FDLE,
and the Broward State Attor-
ney's Office say Gonot took
$5,135 in campaign money
for his personal use funnel-
ing the funds to a friend for
"supplies and equipment." No
such equipment was delivered
by the time Gonot falsely list-
ed the transaction on his Janu-
ary 2008 campaign treasurer's
report. Two computers were
belatedly delivered to Gonot
by the same friend after Gonot
was questioned by an FDLE

Half a dozen clerks have left,

clerk to a simple 3/2 majority.

events that began Thursday,
Dec. 11 when Gonot re-
signed before being arrested
and charged by the State
Attorney with three felonies
resulting from an alleged
misuse of campaign funds.
Then on Friday, Mayor
Al Capellini was taken into
custody and charged with
unlawful compensation, a
3rd degree felony.
The charges stem from
work his engineering firm
did to obtain plat and site
approvals for an office
park being built on Natura
Boulevard. Monday, Gov.
Charlie Crist suspended the
mayor. It was an abrupt end
to a 20-year political career,
one which Capellini had in-
tended to continue by seek-
ing re-election in March.

By Phyllis J. Neuberger
Members of the Pompano Beach
American Association of University
Women, or AAUW, gathered on Dec.
5 at the Sea Watch Restaurant for
their annual 'Toys for Tots' luncheon.
Every member and guest walked in
carrying a game, a teddy bear, foot-
ball, stuffed animal, doll and more.
Soon the Santa bags were filled with
toys galore to brighten the holidays
for children who might not otherwise
receive a gift.
According to Donna Bruno, chair-
man of this event, the unwrapped toys
will be gathered and dropped off by
Marge Balhke at the Pompano Beach
Fire Department for later distribution.
As she watched the pile of toys grow,
Bruno told the women, "This year
we will have more children than ever
needing to be remembered, so I thank
you all for your generosity."
The Pompano Beach branch of
AAUW was organized in 1972 and it
has provided intellectual stimulation
to its members and financial scholar-

A lesson from poetry and politics
By Judy Wilson
When cataclysmic events occur, I am always reminded of T.S. Eliot's
poem The Hollow Men:. "This is the way the world ends, this is the way
the world ends, this is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a
The words mesmerized me in college, although now I can't think
why. The most devastating thing that happened in those days was hav-
ing the Gators lose, taking an astronomy test (never could figure out
when the North Star would rise on say, Oct. 28. Seemed to me it just
did its own thing) or not being asked to a fraternity party.
None of which qualified as world-enders.
What happened last week in Deerfield Beach doesn't qualify either.
So why should Eliot's phrase emerged from nearly forgotten college
Although we were stunned, shocked, dismayed, depending on what
headline you read, our universe remains intact. City government is
proceeding as usual. The remaining three commissioners, somewhat
subdued on Tuesday, carried out their duties while treating one another
more gently than usual. It was very civil and productive. Guidelines for
filling the two vacant commission seats were agreed upon and a time
set to make the decisions.
Is this the honeymoon period of a fractured commission?
Or better yet the dawn of a new age?
Whichever, it's temporary. In March, new faces will occupy those
chairs and more likely than not the struggle to establish position will
What the events of last week remind us so clearly is that power is
temporary. For those who wished so long and so hard for Steve Gonot
to disappear, his resignation was anticlimactic. The enemy that had
been so large, was now, so quickly so small. In retrospect, some say it
was a letdown.
For friends and foes of the mayor, his sudden descent left them
momentarily in disbelief and then depending on their persuasion, sad
or relieved. Again, no fireworks, no banners, no celebration. Rather, a
Much of the mayor's world may have ended. Maybe he can recreate
it. Maybe he will find it not worth the effort.
Either way, the tumble he and Gonot took is a life lesson.
Just when you think you have gotten away with it (whatever IT is in
your world), you can be brought down. And it won't be gloriously. It
will be with a whimper.
What's Your Opinion? Let us know.
Beach renovation needs thoughtful
dialogue from community
To The Editor:
Your excellent lead article about the newly proposed project for Pompano's
beach was very thought provoking. Thank you for presenting both sides of the
What was said led me to think about how lucky we are to have one of the
best beaches on the coast, a first-rate golf course, a working airport and munici-
pal facilities that would be the envy of towns even larger than Pompano. Now
we have the opportunity to enhance one of our assets...let's not over reach, let's
look past greed and keep the beach a "positive" for the community.
What we have in front of us is the possibility of bringing our community
together. We can build on a scale and in a way that will be welcoming to all of
our citizens, and we can leave tourism money and headaches to the north and
south of us.
We don't need to be another shopping destination; we need to become a
homeowner destination to more people who will vote with their civic energy as
well as their taxes.

Recent drownings led town
officials to seek answers to
By Judy Vik
"Lifeguards are a pipe dream in our
town," Vice Mayor Jerry Mclntee said,
at a recent Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
With two miles of beach and 5,800
residents, "Our little town can't
support lifeguard service compa-
rable to Pompano Beach or Deerfield
Beach,". McIntee said.
Three people drowned in the ocean
off LBTS this year, one at the north
end of town and two at the south end.
"We all know lifeguards would be
great. We can't afford it. You can't tell
us where people will drown," Mclntee
Commissioner Birute Clottey, who
called for the workshop on lifeguards,
said she would like to see lifeguards in
the downtown, central part of town in
the places where riptides are preva-
"The people need to decide," Clottey
added. "They will have to pay for it."
In 2007, when commissioners
looked into providing lifeguards, the
city of Pompano Beach Ocean Rescue
Division submitted a proposal for 14
lifeguards and two lieutenants from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. year-round at a cost of
$1.2 million. Equipment costs upped
the cost to $1.5 million.
Commissioner Stuart Dodd said he
would like a survey done to determine"
the days of the week when drownings
and near-drownings occurred. He said
weekends and when winds are above
10 knots would probably cover 90
percent of the occurrences.
Dodd said he can't justify spending
the money for lifeguards for the con-
dos where public access to the beach

Atlantic Doggery Boutique & Grooming
By Phyllis J. Neuberger
There's still time to get your furry
best friend all trimmed up for the
holidays and after! Atlantic Doggery
at 2724 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano
Beach, is a perfect one stop shop
where pet owners stream in and out all
day with their pets for grooming ser-
.vices, super premium foods, clothing,
accessories, toys and a sympathetic
ear from the pet loving owners.
'Scott Hamlin, president and his
partner Ron Bumgardner, vice presi-

Brad Erlich. "We all adore our cus-
tomers and it shows," says Hamlin.
"We have a loyal following, and we

Pompano residents for 13 years,
Hamlin and Bumgardner are celebrat-
ing their first anniversary in business.
Hamlin, a certified groomer, and

Bumgardner does the books and man-
ages the boutique. Hamlin says, "Our
clients include felines and all breeds

free day care is one of our popular
services. This really appeals to own-
ers who hate to see their best friends
While this interview was taking
place, at least 8 dogs were playing and
running free in a totally separated area
behind the boutique where only staff
and four legged clients are allowed.
Grooming is done in the back
where day care doggies have both
human and peer contact. According to
Hamlin, all of the-newest, high tech
equipment is in use. "Our dryers are

poos are hypo-allergenic. We use spa

care to avoid mats and knots which
are not only uncomfortable but also ir-
ritate the skin. Ears should be washed
out and ear hair removed as needed.
Neglected nails can cause infection
and pain. We brush the teeth and offer
an oral gel for at home care to reduce
plaque and tartar."
Melissa Beleski lives nearby and
loves the convenience of Atlantic
Doggery. She dropped in to pick up
her dachshund, Coco, and gave the
place raves. "Coco is groomed here,
and she stays here when I can't be
home with her. Of course I buy all of
her food and presents here as well. I'd
recommend this wonderful place to
any pet lover."
Janette Miller moved into the area
from Ohio about a year ago. She says,
"We're so pleased to have found At-
lantic Doggery. I buy everything for
Bailey and Mia from Scott including
food and toys.
They do an excellent groom-
ing job on my two dogs, and I am
especially grateful to them for their
uncaged day care. They've even taken
them for sleepovers when I was called
out of town. I'm as loyal to them as
they are to me."
Hamlin glows with pleasure at
this praise from his clients. "Yes we
do sleepovers when our clients go on
vacation or are called away. We take
their pets home with us, and they get
the same care as our own poodles,
Levi and Calvin."

Is Good for Your Heart
You may have heard the buzz about
exotic fruits from far-flung locales, but
health and nutrition experts say to look
no further than fruits grown on American
soil for vitality and wellness benefits. Tart
cherries, available in the U.S. year-round
as'dried, frozen and juice, are in fact
"America's Superfruit," a homegrown
and colorful way to reap the health-
promoting properties of antioxidants.
A growing body of science links cherries'
red color, provided by the fruit's powerful
antioxidants - called anthocyanins.- to
heart-health benefits related to reduced
inflammation, total cholesterol and belly
fat. With more than 80 million Americans
living with some form of heart disease,
the heart-healthy qualities of eating red
have more relevance than ever. Even
more good news: research also suggests
the red compounds in cherries may help

Bucolic 'burbs' gearing up to fight crime
By Judy Wilson
Have the sublime suburbs
of Deerfield Beach become
the mean streets? Parents
using the pavilion in Vil-
lages of Hillsboro Park last
Sunday may think so. When
they arrived for a tot's birth-
day party, they found graphic
images and profanities spray
painted on the walls and floors-
of the pavilion. They hast-
ily applied paint to.cover the
most offensive words and the
party went on. But the inci-
dent was not an isolated one.
. "We've always had
problems," said Bill Ganz,
president of the Deer Isles
"But it's elevated lately. And
last weekend, it stepped up a
Vandals did substan-
tial damage to the pavilion,
breaking lights there and on
a flagpole and covering a
BSO car parked nearby with
black paint. The damage to
the off-duty deputy's vehicle
escalated the vandalism from
a criminal misdemeanor to a
felony, said Executive BSO
Officer Lt. Pete Sudler.

"We used to know the
kids around here, but now we
can't ID them. And the level
of disrespect for authority has
accelerated," Ganz said. Fires
have been set in the pavil-
ion as least twice in the last
month, he added.
The park, on the Hills-
boro Canal west of Powerline
Road, is bordered by several
most closely by Deer Isles and
Starlight Cove. Tuesday night,
the Deer Isles Homeowners
Board voted to pay BSO for
additional detail to patrol their
neighborhood. "I'm not ask-
ing for the kids to be thrown
in jail, but they should be
arrested. Let's inconvenience
the parents ... rattle their
cages," Ganz said.
East of Powerline Road
in Deer Creek Country Club,
president, Gary Lother, said
his neighborhood is also being
affected. Several weeks ago,
two men persuaded a woman.
living in The Hollows to open
her door to them. She was
struck in the head and some
of her jewelry taken. "Never
trust anyone you don't know,"
Lother said. "Always be wary
of strangers and BSO tells us
to always call them if any-
thing seems suspicious."
His association has also
hired a special BSO detail to
patrol Deer Creek. "We think
it is a deterrent," Lother said.
Lt. Sudler said the situa-
tion has caused a stepped-up
surveillance of the Villages
park and the area around
it. "We have detectives in
unmarked cars, zone deputies,
traffic units and drug details,
in short a slew of personnel
out there. We are confident
we will stop this activity and
or catch the people doing it."
The western communi-
ties have already formed an
alliance that meets to discuss
common problems. Now,
Ganz said, they are sharing
information via the internet
about threats to their neigh-
This week, two messages
went out, one concerning the
park vandalism, the other
about a Blue Oldsmobile
with an expired temporary
tag. One of the occupants
was seen leaving the car and
knocking on doors of homes.
When a resident began fol-
.lowing in her car, the group
left the development. Ganz

tiated alerts bypassing one
three weeks ago that a rape
had occurred. "It was not
accurate. We didn't circulate
that," he said.
This week, when residents
who witnessed a burglary
in progress called police the
suspect was apprehended
within 60 minutes and the
stolen property recovered.
"We can't do that without
the public's help," Lt. Sudler
said. He called the efforts of
the neighborhood associations
"phenomenal" and said his
deputies attend all association
meetings. In addition, Citizens

Oh! The weather
outside is frightful!
It's more than a song. Please keep in mind
the homeless men, women and children of St.
Laurence Chapel in Pompano Beach, when you
air out those sweaters and blankets.
On cold days, the homeless in our chapel need
blankets for the night.
If you have extras, please drop them off at The
Pelican Newspaper, 1500-A E. Atlantic Blvd.
Thank You to the many people who
contributed new socks and underwear. They
were received with great thanks and promptly
distributed to the people who needed them.

Silverstone said even if the

subsidize towns for lifeguard
services. The commission
approved the resolution.
"It's important to protect

along the beach the day a
couple washed ashore. Now
she swims in Fort Lauderdale

there are lifeguards.
