When asked what it would be like without senior quarterback Lareisa “La La” Fulmore, Pompano Beach High girls flag football coach Jonathan Plummer paused and took a deep breath.

“Oh my gosh,” Plummer said as he dabbed at his eyes. “She has been such a strong force on this team, it is going to be real difficult. It is going to be very interesting to see if we can find someone to replace her.”

Fulmore passed for 182 yards and one interception as the Tornadoes lost to Ft. Lauderdale, 20-0, in the FHSAA second round state play-in game. She also ran for 46 yards. Pompano finished 11-3. The team’s other losses came to Plantation and Taravella.

“This is a heartbreaker for us,” said Plummer, whose team graduates four seniors. “I am pleased with the year. It was rocky in the first five games and it got better as the year went on. Taravella was our last loss and we went on to win six in a row after that. We had a good run. We won three district playoffs in a row and now we will try and go for a fourth.”

Plummer said the team also received strong play from Shelby Petik, Hannah Hamilton, Chelsea Waters,
Diamond Frazier, Sydney Alexander and Synae Jones.

Quarterback Karnisha Coleman passed for 243 yards and three touchdowns as the L’s (13-1) won their sixth consecutive game and returned to the state finals for the first time since 2004 when it was state runner-up. Ft. Lauderdale, which won the inaugural state championship in 2003, went on to lose in the state semifinal game.

 

Highlands Christian comes up short

Miami Brito capitalized on an error in the sixth inning to snap a 1-1 deadlock and defeated Highlands Christian Academy, 4-1, in the Class 1A regional final on Friday afternoon at Florida Memorial College.

Brito (20-8) avenged a 10-run mercy rule a year ago in a regional final loss to the Knights as Emil Alvarez hit a 2-out single in the sixth that landed fair by inches in right field.

Trailing 1-0 entering the sixth, Highlands Christian (13-11) rallied to tie the game at 1-1 in the top of the stanza as Jason Hepple singled and was replaced by pinch runner Nick Vasquez, who came around to score on a double by Kevin Yambur.

Bucks stun Douglas

Deerfield Beach High pulled off the baseball shocker of the season when it eliminated Douglas from the postseason with an 18-15 victory in a District 10-6A semifinal at Taravella in Coral Springs.

The Bucks, which went on to lose the District title to Coral Springs and the regional quarterfinal to Jupiter, rallied from an 11-5 deficit in the sixth inning and scored 13 runs on seven hits and three walks and a few errors, highlighted by a pinch hit double from J.T. Holgerson and a double from Joey Ursetti.

“This was a big win for us,” said Coach Scott Bragg, whose team had been mercy-ruled in its two previous games against the nationally ranked Eagles, 14-0 and 10-0.

Thor & My Perestroika

Posted on 19 May 2011 by LeslieM

By Dave Montalbano

Thor is your typical Saturday Matinee Marvel Comic flick. In the mythical realm of Norse gods, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is the belligerent pretty prince of King Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Frigga (Rene Russo).

On the day it is to be announced  that Thor will be named heir to the throne, mischief arises from a dreaded enemy. Fearing that his father lacks the gravitas to confront this ancient enemy, Thor,
his brother Loki (Tom Huddleston) and a team of brawling buddies venture to the underworld to banish the threat. The battle is a stalemate and King Odin banishes Thor from the kingdom.

Thor plummets into the New Mexico desert. The fallen god meets Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), an astronomy professor, and Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard), master researcher of military technology and mythological lore.

As Thor is humbled by nerdy humans, King Odin is backstabbed by a trusted advisor and the kingdom is assaulted by a phantom menace.

Who will live? Who will die? These questions are answered in this movie, and Thor will return next summer in the highly anticipated The Avengers, which also features Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Sargent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).

Directed by Kenneth Branaugh, Thor is a halfway successful movie. While it contains some shots of visual beauty, the scenes on Thor’s native realm are unrealistic. The fights, the battles and the action sequences rely too much on attention deficient disorder editing, making the story hard to follow.

Thor thrives in the New Mexico desert. Raised on royal and pampered dining, Thor easily accepts the joys of pancakes and coffee in a small desert diner.  Given the outdoor action in daylight, the action sequences are easier to follow. Thor is given his cowboy moment when he confronts a mighty adversary during a Main Street showdown.

For those seeking more serious fare, My Perestroika opens tomorrow. With English subtitles, this documentary interviews the last generation of people who were socialized and educated under Soviet influence.

Given that most of the interviewees are my age and younger, it is fascinating to see their point of view.

The Russian citizens remember their childhood conformity with fondness. While the interviewees reflect upon the fakery of the Soviet system, My Perestroika focuses upon personal responsibility and carving out an individual identity.

Relay for Life: “A Success”

Dear Editor:

I am calling Saturday night a success. You can only worry about the things you have control over, and all the major things we had control over went well.

The opening ceremonies, survivor lap and dinner by JB’s on the Beach were great. The Luminaria ceremony under the pavillion was unconventional, but moving.

We also raised over $11,000 Saturday night and have made our ACS goal 0f $80,000. We will keep pushing to the $100,000 mark.

Thanks for all you do. Next time I’ll get to see you and your husband perform!

Utility tax

Dear Editor:

Are the voters in Deerfield Beach aware of the effect of the 10 percent utility tax on the businesses and residents of the city? The commissioners insist that we are the only major city in Broward County that does not have one. It was rescinded by the voters in the 1970s, opening the door for businesses such as the Sun-Sentinel, Publix, Southeast Toyota, and many other businesses, to choose to locate in Deerfield Beach.

The mayor had said that this will lower our ad valorem tax rate — among the highest in the county. The city manager claims he needs the $6 million to balance the budget, and the finance director says this tax is needed for capital improvements and to stabilize the millage rate. Stabilizing doesn’t sound like reducing! Show us the figures. We run businesses and, like you, should clearly understand what you are doing. We need to plan for the future, as obviously we will have to pass all these further increases on to the consumer. [Commissioner] Ganz claims [this would mean] a reduction in the millage rate. It would take $4,910,521 to reduce the millage 1 mill. Show us the figures.

John Grassi

Deerfield Beach

 

Dear Editor:

At the commission meeting Tuesday night to introduce the utility tax, a great deal of emphasis was placed on the levy on electric bills. Not a word about the 10 percent levy on water bills that will not be cut in any way. As far as the levy on electric bills – that supposedly will be cut in half when the fuel charge is subtracted – get out your electric bill, subtract the fuel charge, and I am willing to bet it does not cut what you will pay in half, as you were told Tuesday night.

I cannot believe that I must come to the defense of Century Village, but obviously [Commissioner]  Popelsky did not. When [Commissioner] Ganz was denigrating the Village and claiming they are not paying their fair share, why didn’t Popelsky say the rationale behind passage of the Fire Assessment fee was so that everyone would be made to pay?

I do have a question though, if the Fire Department goes to the county, will that negate the fire assessment fee? And in order to make sure everything is legal and above board, a referendum should be held. Not on whether the fire department should go to BSO, but rather on an amendment to Section 7.09 paragraph 2 [of the city charter] that would add just four words. “exempting other governmental agencies.” That could easily be done by mail-in ballot. I believe that the cost was previously estimated at $30,000.

Code/building violations

Dear Editor:

The city of deerfield beach code enforcement and building department have once again dropped the ball. The city departments are great at going after the average resident for garbage cans left out in front of your house, but will not go after a restaurant that is doing construction without any permits. A group of residents have brought this to the building department and code enforcement several times and they have fined Aroma grill, which used to be half-time bar and grill. But let them continue to do unsupervised, unsafe work. The job of these departments is to help maintain safe conditions for the city’s residents [yet] they continue to let them work without a permit. I guess it’s easy to go after the low fruit on the tree. Having a yard sale this weekend… I bet they rip out my yard sales signs.

You’ve got the key

Posted on 19 May 2011 by LeslieM

 

“Of things I should be thankful for, I’ve had a goodly share

And as I sit here in the comfort of a cozy chair,

My fancy takes me to a humble east side tenement.

Five people in two bedrooms is where my childhood days were spent.

It wasn’t much like Paradise, but ‘mid the dirt and all

There was the sweetest angel, one that I fondly call…..

My Yiddishe Momme.”

 

A Yiddishe Momma keeps the house so clean that you can eat off the floor, and where cooking is concerned she has more “BAM” than Emeril because momma’s meals were made with one ingredient that Emeril can’t get. They were made with a momma’s love … and a momma’s hands.

As Barbara J. Hall wrote, “In my mother’s hands, I saw the hard work that she had done for me. I saw the caring those hands provided for my benefit throughout the years …” When I think of momma’s hands, I can still picture them waving magically over the Shabbat Candles as she benshed lecht. And, even before that, I can picture her kneading a batch of dough and braiding it into a perfect Challah for Shabbat.

And, as Barbara J. Hall continues, “In my mother’s face, I saw the hopes and dreams she held for me that were so plainly written there.”

From the time that I was born, momma dreamed of being able to see me standing under the Chupa. In fact, when I was born that was the blessing given to her by others — “May you be privileged to escort your son under the Chupa.”

A Chupa … a wedding canopy … we even sing about it at services on Friday nights. “L’Cha Dodi” … come let us greet the Bride of Sabbath … come let us greet the Sabbath Bride.

More than 2 billion people were all glued to a wedding recently. Many who never find the time to go to their House of Worship made sure to get up at four in the morning just to watch The Royal Wedding.

When one agrees to wed, they realize that another soul has won the key to their heart. Actually, it is not so much that one soul has won the key to another’s heart, but that both now share the same key. And, at the wedding, the Prince and Princess were indeed given a key. But that key was not in a place that too many of us would have thought to find it. It was inside a Challah. There is a custom among some pertaining to the baking of a Shliss Challah. This is usually done on the Shabbat following Pesach. I’ll bet most of you have never heard of a Shliss Challah. Well, now you know that it is a challah with a house key baked into it.

By the way, there was also a Ketubah at the Royal Wedding. A Ketubah is a contract between the bride and the groom. Oddly enough, Shabbat is also a contract … as we have agreed to honor and observe it.

There are many different ways to honor and observe Shabbat. The key is to treat it like a Royal Wedding. Prepare for it. Look forward to it. Invite family and friends to join you. Have special foods for one and all. Have blessings recited. Sing songs. Oops, and I almost forgot … while you’re making up your guest list … don’t forget to invite G-d in.

Now, let us celebrate this most blessed of days together as one heart and one soul. That is the key.

 

Shalom My Friends,

Rabbi Craig H. Ezring

PAIR LANDS IN HOT WATER AFTER STEALING DOZENS OF BACKFLOW VALVES

Posted on 19 May 2011 by LeslieM

Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives have arrested two men in connection with a widespread problem that was leaving many throughout the county with a flood of problems.

At around 3 a.m. May 18, BSO Oakland Park sergeant John Nash was on patrol in the 4500 block of N. Dixie Highway when he stumbled upon a location where a backflow valve had been stolen and water was gushing out. The sergeant noticed there wasn’t much water on the ground, so he figured the thieves must have just stolen the valve and could potentially be in the area. He conducted a search of the surrounding neighborhood and spotted two suspects in a white Grand Marquis exiting from a warehouse complex at 4700 N. Dixie Highway.
The sergeant observed the rear of the car was dripping water, had mud on the hood of the trunk and appeared to be holding excessive weight. Upon speaking with the two males the sergeant noticed they were both soaked and had mud on their legs. The men claimed they were returning from the beach. Sgt. Nash had reason to believe the men were lying and placed them under arrest.
A search of the vehicle revealed there was an ax and 26 backflow valves in the trunk and a canvass of the warehouse complex revealed five locations where water was spewing from broken pipes.
The suspects, John Martin, 29, and Gannon Wing, 20, admitted to stealing the valves. Each has been charged with loitering or prowling, but additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.
Detectives investigating similar thefts that occurred on May 18 in at least six jurisdictions in Broward and one in Palm Beach will be looking at the stolen items to determine if the suspects were the culprits in their cases.
