The Readers Have Spoken

W

elcome to the first annual Our City’s Best of Davie, Cooper City & Southwest Ranches. We surveyed the readers of Our City Davie, tabulated the results, and now present our readers’ picks for the best. Our City Media has been publishing a special “Best of” issue of Our City Weston for about 15 years now. It has consistently been our most popular issue. It is also an incredibly helpful resource for readers to find the area’s best businesses and service providers. We decided to bring this same concept to residents of Davie, Cooper City and Southwest Ranches. Voting opened at www.bestofdavie.com on July 15th and we were shocked at the response. The members of this community were eager to share their favorite restaurants, medical practices, hair salons and more. Voting was intense and competitive in almost every category. In its first year, Our City’s Best of Davie, Cooper City & Southwest Ranches received more ballot submissions than any other “Best of” or “Readers’ Choice” issue our company has ever done! Please use this magazine as a resource throughout the year. Or, if you are more digitally oriented, visit www.bestofdavie.com for an easy to access online version. And, to all of the winners, congratulations!

Chiropractic? Why Not? “A Doctor’s Confession to West Broward”

Dear Friend,

write one for a lesser amount for chiropractic. When you bring in this article (by 9/30s/19) you will receive my entire new patient exam for $55. That’s with x-rays, biomechanical exam, history and consultation…the whole ball of wax. This exam could cost you $250 elsewhere. The law says that I must tell you THAT YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR TREATMENT, WHICH IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR DISCOUNTED, OR REDUCED FEE FOR SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT.

I

want to give credit where credit is due. So, perhaps a confession can help clear the air so there’s no misunderstanding. Before I talk about my confession, though, let me say a few other things first. Let me start by explaining the photo in this letter. You know, when I meet people in town they usually say, “Oh, yeah, I know you, you’re Dr. Rick. I’ve seen your ad with that picture of you and your family.” Well, I’m the guy on the left. Twenty-five years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. I was a junior in high school and I started getting migraines. I had suffered from intense headaches since childhood. Over the years, I consulted many medical doctors, and specialists. I went through all kinds of tests, MRIs, and treatments. I tried every drug in the market; our medicine cabinet looked like a hospital’s infirmary. And still, nothing helped. But there’s more… A friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The chiropractor examined me, took X-rays, and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment did not hurt; it actually felt good. And guess what…I started feeling so much better! From daily migraines, I went down to three a week, and then to once in a great while. That’s when I realized that I wanted to become a chiropractor and help others. That’s how it happened! It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their migraines. They also come to me with their chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, backaches, ear infections, asthma, allergies, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, just to name a few. Here’s what some of my patients had to say: “Due to an auto accident, I suffered from severe neck pain, vertigo and I could not raise my arm to comb my hair. Now I am symptom free with no medication and I can do everything I could not do before.” – E. Heaney, Hollywood, FL “Thanks to the DRX 9000 and the doctors, I no longer have chronic sciatic pain. It’s been a long time since I have taken pain medication.” – J. Walker, Miramar

Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It’s as simple as that! Forty-five million Americans no longer have health insurance, and those who do have found that their benefits have been greatly reduced. That’s where chiropractic comes in. I have a significantly lower fee plan so that more people are able to afford the care they need. An entire week of care in my office costs what you could pay for one visit elsewhere. Another way to save…studies show that chiropractic can double your immune capacity, naturally and without drugs. The immune system fights colds, the flu, and other ailments. So you may not be running off to the doctor as much. Studies show that people actually pay less for their long-term overall health care expenses if they are seeing a chiropractor. You benefit from an amazing offer. Look, it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to correct your health. You are going to write a check to someone for your health care expenses, you may as well

Great care at a great fee…Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Life College and have been practicing for over 10 years. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to pro athletes that you may know. I am constantly going to seminars and updating my knowledge so I can give my patients the latest information and techniques of my profession. My assistants are Annie and Bianca – really great people. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an exceptional fee. Our office is called Windmill Health Center and it’s at 17160 Royal Palm Blvd., Suite 1 in the Windmill Professional Plaza. Our phone number is 954-217-4881. Call Annie or Bianca for an appointment. We can help you. Thank you. For more information regarding our services please visit our website www.WindmillHealthCenter.com.

With Slender Fit U you can get slim and skip the gym. Slender Fit U’s medically monitored hCG weight loss program turns your body into a fat burning machine. Over the past ten years it has helped hundreds of patients lose weight and keep it off. Patients will lose pounds and inches by taking a tiny dose of hCG and following a very specific low-calorie diet, eating real food including proteins, fruits and vegetables. Most Slender Fit U dieters report losing between one-half and two pounds per day without exercising. Generally, men lose more weight than women while on the program and women tend to lose more inches than men. Slender Fit U does more than just help patients lose weight – it actually reshapes the body. Because you are losing excess fat, not muscle mass or tone, you do not end up with saggy skin after completing the Slender Fit U program. Upon completion, you will also have reset your metabolism and corrected the hypothalamus resulting in permanent weight loss. Slender Fit U will help you modify your relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss. In fact, 90% of patients do not gain back any of the weight they lost.

Being aware of the stressors your children face – and recognizing when anxiety begins to interfere with their daily lives – can go a long way in keeping them happy, healthy and ready to face the challenges ahead. help from a psychiatrist or therapist,” Dr. Rohaidy says. It may seem “old school,” but Dr. Rohaidy suggests a family dinner night at least once a week (“Put the phones away!”), which can foster relaxed conversations around the table. Better still, find outdoor activities that you can do as a family, such as going to the beach, riding bikes or going for a walk. Most important of all, says Dr. Rohaidy, is to take charge. “Give them space when they need it but don’t be complacent,” Dr. Rohaidy advises. “Rely on your intuition. If you see something, bring it up. Reach out to them and have a conversation.”

Rachel V. F. Rohaidy, M.D., a Baptist Health psychiatrist, says anxiety is normal for people of all ages, especially adolescents. Most middle-schoolers and high-schoolers tend to have the same general anxieties about starting a new school year:

• Social Life – Will I be liked and accepted, and be able to make friends? • Peer Pressure – Will I have to do things I’m uncomfortable with in order to fit in? • Personal Safety – Will I be bullied or have to face an active shooter situation? How they handle these anxieties can make all the difference as they navigate through the turbulent emotional waters of adolescence.

So how do you know if your child is struggling with anxiety issues? What signs should you be looking for? More importantly, what can you do to help? “Adolescents don’t have the emotional vocabulary to express what they’re feeling or why they’re feeling that way,” Dr. Rohaidy says. “As a result, you may see somatic symptoms bubbling up such as headaches, stomach cramps, nausea or diarrhea.” Other things to watch for are abrupt changes in behavior, isolation, anger outbursts, sadness or crying, or a sudden drop in grades. Dr. Rohaidy also sees a lot of teens who are selfmedicating with alcohol and cannabis, even as early as middle school. “When their anxiety is so bad that they’re not functioning at all, that’s when you should seek professional

In the end, your goal as a parent is to equip your child with the emotional skills and knowledge they’ll need once they leave the nest. That journey isn’t always easy, and there are lots of obstacles and pitfalls along the way. Being vigilant and involved can help keep your child on track and out of trouble. If your child needs help dealing with anxiety or addiction issues, there are lots of community resources available. Ask your pediatrician or primary care provider for help, or go online and look for community resources for teens. In Broward, there are several resources for teens in distress, including TeenSpace Help Line (dial 211), and various teen support groups.

Broward Schools, Anti-Defemation League Partner to Create Hate Free Schools BY JOHN DUKA

Broward County Public Schools will partner with the Florida branch of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to implement ADL’s No Place for Hate Initiative in all 234 Broward County schools during the 20192020 school year. No Place for Hate is a school climate improvement framework that provides preK–12 schools with an organizing roadmap for combating bias, bullying,

and hatred, leading to long-term solutions for creating and maintaining a positive and equitable climate. It is a self-directed program that brings together students, educators, and family members to play a more focused direct role in combating bias and bullying as a means to stop the escalation of hate. Each school is expected to: create a No Place for Hate committee, club, or coalition composed of students, staff, administrators, teachers, and parents; have each member of the school community sign a resolution or promise of respect; complete an ADL Education ‘A World of Difference Training’ for students and educators; and develop & complete three school-wide activities with a discussion component. to empower students and educators to promote These activities, as designed and implemented by the respect for individual and group differences while School, should enhance students’ understanding of challenging prejudice and bigotry.” diversity, bias and inclusion.

Our Town, Davie

ASK THE MAYOR

Get involved and help raise funds for stomach cancer.

BY MAYOR JUDY PAUL he importance of the 2020 census is paramount to every municipality in America, Davie included. The results of the count impact us on a daily basis. Decennial census data are used to determine your representation in Congress, as well as how funds are spent for roads, schools, hospitals, and more. Help ensure that everyone in your community is counted in the next decennial census. Maybe you would like to get involved and assist in the count. Could you use a little extra income? Jobs for the 2020 Census offer competitive wages that are paid weekly. Authorized expenses, such as mileage, are reimbursed for employees doing fieldwork. Temporary positions for the 2020 Census feature flexible hours—a perfect fit if you are looking to earn a little extra money, even if you already have other commitments. Based on requests from several of our senior citizens we have begun the process to authorize a long term residency senior homestead exemption. This exemption shall allow a resident who has attained the age of sixty five, has a household income that does not exceed $30,174 (which is adjusted annually pursuant to F.S. § 196.075(3)), has maintained thereon the house listed as the owner of permanent residence for at least 25 continuous years, and has legal equitable title to real estate located within the Town of Davie with a just value of less than $250,000. Any taxpayer claiming this additional exemption must submit annually to the Broward County Property Appraisers not later than March 1, a sworn statement of household income and any necessary supporting documentation. This will reduce the amount of taxes brought into the Town by approximately $21,000. This exemption will become effective for the taxes billed during fiscal year 2021 which is from October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021. Davie Fire Rescue Chief Julie Downey recently received the 2019 Southeastern Association of Fire Chiefs Career Fire Chief of the Year award. Chief Downey was presented with the award at the SE Fire Chiefs Association Annual Conference on Thursday, July 18, 2019, in Tennessee. With over 37 years of service in fire rescue, she has played an instrumental role in implementing several programs over the years. Most notably, the Stop the Bleed initiative for which the Town of Davie was recognized in 2015 by the White House for being a leading agency for this program. This program empowers the general public to stop life-threatening bleeding by providing access to tourniquets and other bleeding control equipment. The Town of Davie is diligent in its efforts to preserve the beautiful environment, including our ocean, waterways, Everglades and land in between, which is so vital to our regional economy and the State of Florida. It is well understood that plastic bags are detrimental to our environment because they do not fully degrade in our oceans or land environment and introduce unsafe chemicals into our environment. Plastic bags create the potential for death of marine animals through entanglement and ingestion, as well as the potential for poisoning through the ingestion of micro-plastics, which are the product of the partial degradation of the plastic bags. The expansive usage of single-use shopping bags and their low disposal and recycling rates creates an impediment to the Town’s waste reduction and recycling goals while creating unsightly litter and pollution. Single-use plastic bags are difficult to recycle and frequently contaminate material that is processed through the Town’s curbside recycling and composting programs. Reusable bags are considered to be the best option to reduce waste and litter, protect wildlife and conserve resources. Davie’s Diversity Dialogue will discuss ways our religious community can become involved with actions to protect the environment and create a culturally rich urban forest and community garden. The event will take place Sept. 25 at Town Hall between 9 and 11. If you are interested in attending please contact me or Laurie Serur at 954-797-1030. You must be preregistered to attend.

An Evolution in Community Policing BY SHERIFF GREGORY TONY have dedicated my career in law enforcement to making a positive impact on the lives of the citizens in the community. Now, as sheriff, it is the foundation of how I run the Broward Sheriff’s Office. I have seen how small interactions with the public achieve huge safety results, so I have directed our deputies to get out of their squad cars, walk the streets and connect with people. These interactions go a long way toward building trust and respect, raising awareness and bridging any gaps that may exist. When we are more visible and hands-on, people feel more comfortable sharing concerns, providing helpful tips and ultimately contributing to a safer and brighter future for all. With this in mind, BSO is ready to take community policing to the next level. I’m excited to announce the launch of the Neighborhood Support Teams (NST), an innovative new initiative focused on further strengthening law enforcement and

I

community relationships. The NST, which will be comprised of law enforcement representatives, will work with various members of the community to develop a strong network of representation and involvement. This includes leaders, business stakeholders, faith-based institutions, school board officials, activists, mental health professionals, social workers, residents, youth groups and high school students. These individuals and groups are the eyes and ears of their neighborhoods. They have the pulse of the community, understand their strengths and weaknesses and provide an intimate perspective on the needs of their area beyond routine calls for service. The NST’s responsibilities are far-reaching and extend to every corner of the county. Our representatives will host monthly meetings with stakeholders to maintain engagement and continue to foster positive working relationships. In addition, they will play an active role in various community events, experiences and partnerships. Teams will provide numerous educational opportunities, including hosting public safety seminars and cultural diversity discussions, and providing education on other important topics, such as civilian rights pertaining to policing encounters and civilian active shooter response protocols. They will also help connect varied groups, including veterans, the elderly, individuals suffering from mental health problems and those struggling to put food on their table, with vital resources to help provide them with the assistance they need. And we are focusing on our youth through back-to-school initiatives and mentorship opportunities. To learn more about Neighborhood Support Teams, please visit us at sheriff.org/nst. SUCCESS = REWARD You can stay connected by following the sheriff on Twitter @BrowardSheriff or emailing him directly at ask_the_sheriff@sheriff.org.

Hi I’m Booboo, a 15 year old fun loving Yorkie. I am a playful male, that enjoys cuddling and licking people’s faces. On my daily walks you’ll often find me playing with other dogs and smelling all trees along the way. My home is in Davie, with my mom who I adore, that has cared for me since I was born. Boiled chicken is my favorite treat. I don’t enjoy the heat for too long, being away from my mom, loud sounds and fast movements. I was last seen hanging out with my girlfriend Mini, a female Yorkie who lives a few foors down from me.
