CELEBRATING THE FOURTH OF JULY Local communities getting ready for an exciting day HOLLYWOOD There's no better way to celebrate our nations's 236th birthday than on Hollywood Beach at the annual 4th of July Celebration on Hollywood Beach. Sponsored by the City of Hollywood Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts and the Hollywood Community Redevelopment AgencyBeach District, this annual event features entertainment throughout the day and evening, highlighted by a dazzling offshore fireworks display at 9 p.m. The afternoon is packed with entertainment. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., children's fun and games with DJ Chulo will entertain the crowd at the oceanfront Charnow Park, located at Garfield Street and the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk in the Broadwalk Fun Zone. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., there will be arts and crafts off Buchanan and New York streets. From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Hollywood Beach Theatre at Johnson Street will feature a live music performance by Pocket Change, followed by the offshore fireworks display. INFORMATION TO HELP MAKE IT A SAFE AND HAZARD-FREE HOLIDAY Due to heavy traffic and limited parking, spectators are encouraged to utilize the free shuttle buses located at the two downtown Hollywood garages. The Radius garage is located at 250 N. 19 Avenue, with the shuttle stop on the northwest corner of Tyler Street and N. 19 Avenue. The Van Buren street garage is located at 251 S. 20 Avenue. The free buses will run from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Please note the last shuttles will leave for the beach at 8 p.m., at which time all eastbound vehicular traffic toward the beach will be shut down. The drop-off location for the shuttle buses will be at Johnson Street and A1A. Returning shuttles begin at 9:30 p.m. at the conclusion of the fireworks display. Intracoastal Waterway bridges will maintain their regular schedules throughout the day and early evening, but from 8 p.m. to midnight the following bridges will remain in the down position to allow vehicular traffic to exit the beach: Dania Beach Boulevard, Sheridan Street and Hollywood Boulevard.

‘AROUND THE CITY OF CHOICE’ Traffic is a problem no matter what city you work and live in HALLANDALE BEACH - In the last few columns, I covered the Beachwalk development project and our budget. Last month the commission acted on another item that is on the top of the list of concerns for our residents and needs improvement; traffic. This is not just the top complaint for our city; it is the same for many cities around the county and globe. Even in a small community there is always some type of peak traffic flow. In the late 1800’s the term rush hour was created and since then engineers, planners and governments have been trying to mitigate traffic. Of all polled cities around our nation 52% showed this as a top issue. If you travel to any vibrant city there is traffic. If there is commerce, there are jobs and a competitive market place. In urban communities like Hallandale Beach all these aspects collide. We have many assets and with them create a place where people want to be. We have both year round residents and tourists, we have all types of commercial uses and we have entertainment. These uses place a demand on our built out roadways. It has to be noted we do not even control the

Mayor Joy Cooper main roads in our city. Broward County and the Florida Department of Transportation are the two agencies that make the final decisions and until recently hold all the purse strings. When we adopted our transportation plan on a 4-1 vote, we created a Transportation Impact Fee. This fee can be used to provide transportation improvements within our borders. We do have the ability to provide input and play an integral role in how the traffic plans are implemented with Broward County and FDOT. For the past 10 years I have been serving on the MPO. This agency is made up of representatives from every city and the county. We meet monthly to review and approve transportation improvements around the county. Having a seat at the table has given our city the ability to work side by side

with BCT and FDOT to address many concerns. Over the past six years Federal Highway upgrades, Hallandale Beach Boulevard upgrades, extension of Diana Drive and the A1A project have been planned and are in different phases of completion. The most significant project will be the real time fiber optic traffic signalization project; ITS. Along with Staff, I have lobbied for this project for the past years. We even asked to create our own system since the county did not have it budgeted in the plans until 2018. Now it is on the horizon with a scheduled start of 2013-2014. Other then these projects the next best way to address traffic is to continually look at areas in which we can improve flow. Traffic has always been on the top of the list for the commission and our city managers. City Manager Mark Antonio has tackled traffic with hands on approach. Over the past year we have met with BCT and FDOT to improve bus transit and most importantly; flow. At one of last month’s commissions meetings they offered changes to Hallandale Beach Boulevard to once again address east west patterns. Readers may recall

Of all polled cities around our nation, 52% showed this as a top issue. If you travel to any vibrant city there is traffic. If there is commerce, there are jobs and a competitive market place. In urban communities like Hallandale Beach all these aspects collide. that last year the commission approved the changes on Dixie Highway and HBB. The changes heading east were to be built this year. Many residents simply hate this pattern. I do not think there was one person that found it to be counterintuitive and were skeptical that it did move more traffic faster and provided a longer time for the light. FDOT actually proved it works. That is why the commission approved the change and were ready to see it completed. Originally FDOT wanted to eliminate all the left hand turns at Dixie and HBB and create a totally different pattern called a series of rights. Drivers would bypass the left and make their way to Dixie by making right turns around an adjacent block. They proposed this plan three years ago but it would have a direct impact to the businesses around the tracks. They proposed the left on to First Avenue be eliminated. We stood our ground to protect busi-

nesses and the alternative was the configuring at Dixie. Last meeting the commission pulled the plug on the existing configuration and moved to adopt a new recommendation to eliminate the left turn heading south on North Dixie. Obviously, as I stated during the meeting, this action was trading one area’s pain for another. Sure enough a property owner on North Dixie contacted the commission the next day. The change will be reviewed once more over the next month to see if this is the only solution for the intersection. The other changes that the commission agreed to adopt were changes on Golden Isles Drive, Layne Boulevard and 10th Avenue at Gulfstream Park. The commission delayed actions eliminating the left onto HBB heading east from south bound NE 8th Avenue until the property owners were fully informed. All changes are intended to add time to

the east west traffic. They are not major infrastructure changes, but simply lane marking and light timing changes. I requested that Diplomat Parkway also be included since the left heading north is too short and does not allow for cars to turn when there is not oncoming traffic on HBB. FDOT did modeling for the commission to provide some idea of how the new patterns will improve circulation. The issue may arise that the traffic heading onto HBB may be delayed. We were assured the changes can revert back if they create any unintended problems difficulty. Hope you are having a wonderful Fourth of July!!!

BETH DAVID MEMORIAL GARDENS & LEVITT-WEINSTEIN MEMORIAL CHAPELS & CEMETERIES

Levitt-Weinstein Memorial Chapels & Cemeteries along with Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert have been involved in the South Florida community for over half a century. What distinguishes Levitt-Weinstein & Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert is that these South Florida institutions are still operated by the third generation of the original founding families.

“Our goal at Beth David is to grow and expand to meet the needs of the community and families that we serve. As long as the needs of our families continue, we will keep growing and developing.” Says Marc Rubin, Area Sales Director.

Memorial From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––– families who want a more Jewish traditional burial. Along with all this growth, Beth David has also begun construction on a new mausoleum building. “Our goal at Beth David is to grow and expand to meet the needs of the community and families that we serve. As long as the needs of our families continue, we will keep growing and developing.” Says Marc Rubin, Area Sales Director. Levitt-Weinstein Memorial Chapels & Cemeteries along with Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert have been involved in the South Florida community for over half a century. What distinguishes Levitt-Weinstein & Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert is that these South Florida institutions are still operated by the third generation of the original founding families. Life is uncertain, and it's important that the final resting place of a loved one be agreed upon. Our fullservice funeral homes and cemetery are proud to be independ-

ently owned and locally operated. We are not a public company traded on the stock market. Michael Blasberg, General Manager, said, "We have directors with over 100 years of combined arranging experience and are sensitive to the needs of families. We strive to build on our long-term relationships and create new ones that will stand the test of time." The services provided by Levitt-Weinstein Memorial Chapels & Cemetery along with Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert, though, dedicated to the Jewish community, are available to people from all walks of life. Although our cemetaries are strictly for Jewish burials, our funeral homes are available to service all faiths. Marc Rubin, Area Sales Director, said, "Whether your loved one is staying locally or transferring out of state, the funeral home is here for the needs of all people that we serve. The advantage of being privately owned and managed is that decisions can be made quickly."

"People make choices in life and plan ahead for many things," Rubin says. "When a death occurs, why place the burden on your family to make those eternal decisions for you? What if unforeseen situations arise, wouldn't you feel better knowing you made your plans beforehand?" Shari Bradley, Marketing Director, said, "One of the benefits of dealing with us NOW is that you're planning in advance, saving money and relieving your family of stress by having to make the last minute decisions when you’re not necessarily thinking rationally." "Approximately 90% of the families we service have been pre-arranged," Rubin said. When you think about it logically, it makes sense because it is just another part of Estate Planning, like your Will; and you can handle your funeral and cemetery wishes at the same time with us." Rubin goes on to say,"What are you going to do when a death occurs? It's important that each per-

son has a prearranged plan. A person can set up a financial plan paid out over a period of time with no interest charges. One day you will need it, so why wait for that day to suddenly come? Long-term planning locks in at today's price and protects against inflation." Blasberg states, "There are no two funeral plans the same. Increasingly, the Chapel handles spe-

cial requests such as "Personalized Funerals" that celebrate the life of the person. In a matter of speaking, death is a fact of life and in those challenging moments you want a family there to comfort you, to love, grieve,

and remember your spirit. "LET OUR FAMILY TREAT YOUR FAMILY LIKE OUR OWN." Levitt Weinstein, Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert Funeral Homes and Beth David Memorial Gardens and Chapels.

There are six chapels serving Dade, Broward, & Palm Beach Counties. Phone 1-888-800-9008. Visit them on-line at www.Levitt-Weinstein.com

SPOTLIGHT ON HOLLYWOOD Properly dispose of unwanted records

By Richard Robert, Director of Records and Archives HOLLYWOOD Identity theft is a growing crime that can affect just about anyone, regardless of how careful you might think you are. According to the FBI, between 500,000 and 700,000 Americans every year are victims of criminals looking to

cash in on your name. Aside from the loss of money, identity theft can cause many problems: an extensive amount of time closing fraudulent bank and credit card accounts, repairing your personal credit reports, being denied credit, loans, or other services. As a result of the overwhelming popu-

portunities for residents to dispose of unwanted records. The division has arranged for shredding services to be available to residents and businesses on the following Saturdays: August 18, 2012, November 3, 2012, and April 20, 2013 8:00 a.m. to noon, or until the truck reaches capacity All three events are scheduled to be held on the west side of City Hall Circle, 2600 Hollywood Boulevard. Residents with proof of residency will have the opportunity to

shred up to five boxes of records in a safe and secure environment, insuring their personal and private records do not turn up in the wrong hands. One of the most common ways thieves hijack your identity starts right at your home or business. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, criminals often engage in “dumpster diving” going through your garbage cans, communal dumpsters, or trash bins in search of copies of checks, credit card statements, bank statements or other records that typically

bear your name and address. These documents make it easier for criminals to get control over accounts in your name and even to assume your identity. Experts across the board recommend that all business and personal records that could fall into the wrong hands, be shredded before being tossed in the trash. For more information on this service, contact the Records and Archives Division at 954.921.3545.

SPOTLIGHT ON STAGE Legendary singer-songwriter Don McLean sings ‘Bye Bye Miss American Pie’ - and other hits at the Hard Rock Live

DIVORCE PARTY THE MUSICAL Famous for his many great true American classic songs, Don McLean is still in demand as a concert singer and performer. In 1971, with the release of “American Pie,” as a double Aside single, the song became charted within a month, while the album remained at number 1 in the UK for seven weeks in 1972. It continued to remain on the UK charts for fifty-three consecutive weeks thereafter. Interest from the media and public sent the single to number one in the USA and Don to international stardom. 1973 was another great year for Don McLean, the performer and songwriter, when Perry Como recorded McLean’s song from his album Tapestry, “And I Love Her So,” taking it to the UK’s top 5 and in America to the top 30. Through-

out the 1970's, McLean remained an in demand concert performer. Other songs to follow were: “Chain Lightning,” “Crying,” “Since I Don’t Have You,” “Castles in the Air,” and “It’s Just the Sun.”  In 1996, “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” performed by the ‘Fugees,” was one of his most successful selling singles of the year. Don McLean was inaugurated into the Na-

tional Academy of Popular Music Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2004 and in 2009 he released his latest studio album, “Addicted to Black.” He is now on a seven nation tour including a stop at the Hard Rock Live on July 5, 2012 at 8 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the box office in person only.

BROWARD DENTAL IMPLANTS & COSMETIC CENTER There’s a definite relationship between a sinus infection and tooth pain. Maxillary sinusitis pain can be felt through the jaw, teeth, cheeks and eyes. Pain is most often felt along the top row of the teeth causes swelling of the plate. Despite the close relationship between a sinus infection and toothache, there are ways to determine if the pain is sinus related or dental related. Facts: Tooth pain can be a symptom of a sinus infection caused by allergies or bacteria, or the sinus infection can be caused by an infection in the maxillary teeth. Causes: Several agents can trigger a sinus infection such as allergies, chemical irritant or an infected maxillary tooth. An infection in the maxillary teeth leads to maxillary sinusitis. This type of sinus infection causes pain in the teeth and pain or tenderness, below the eye and cheekbone. SINUS PAIN A toothache related to a sinus infection is related to an infection in the maxillary sinuses. The pressure that builds in the maxillary sinuses causes tooth pain in the upper back teeth. You may feel it most when chewing food. This pain is referred to as a sinus toothache. If you’re experiencing pain in several teeth, rather than one tooth, it’s likely the pain is associated with a sinus infection. DENTAL PAIN Dental pain differs from sinus pain. Usually dental pain is accompanied by tooth or gum disease, which is usually referred to as gingivitis. Dental pain is a sign there’s a problem with teeth, not your sinuses. Dental pain can affect any of your teeth because the pain is related to either gum or tooth disease. If you still find it difficult to distinguish dental pain from sinus pain, meet with your dentist. If the dentist cannot find a dental problem for the source of your pain, then meet with your medical doctor to determine if the pain is related to a sinus infection.

Sinus Infection & Tooth Pain

pain is related to a sinus infection. SYMPTOMS Evidence of a sinus infection can include nasal congestion, headache, and discharge in the back of the throat, fever, tooth pain and fatigue. You can even experience tenderness on both sides of the face or pressure under the eyes. PREVENTION Treatment for sinus infection involves antibiotics, decongestants and antihistamines. Increase your intake of vitamins C, especially if you feel a cold coming soon. Vitamin C supplement, food rich with vitamin C or orange juice can help your avert a sinus infection. Prevent spreading germs with regular hand washing. Use tissue for blowing your nose instead of a handkerchief that cultivates the growth of bacteria. Sinus problems can cause a myriad of symptoms. Some of the symptoms are what you would expect, runny nose, blocked nasal passages, congestion, pressure in the sinus and headaches to name a few. Sometimes, though, you may experience symptoms that seem totally unrelated to sinusitis. One of the most common symptoms that seem unrelated to sinusitis is pain in tooth. Sinuses problems can cause sever tooth pain. There have been many instances where people experience tooth pain so great they end up seeing a dentist. The dentist upon a thorough exam finds absolutely nothing wrong with the tooth. Later, after that same patient is diagnosed with sinusitis and gets the proper treatment the tooth pain goes away. That is a classic example of a symptom of sinusitis appearing to be something else. This happens more than you would think. Why can sinus problems lead to tooth pain? It has to do with

the way sinusitis manifests itself and the position of the sinus cavities in relation to your teeth. A sinus infection is an infection of the sinus cavities in your head. Two of the cavities, the maxillary sinuses, are located on either side of the nose behind the check. These are the sinuses that cause tooth pain. When a sinus cavity becomes infected the cause is a blockage that does not allow the sinus to drain. When a sinus cannot drain, it can’t rid itself of the mucus it produces to clean the area of bacteria. Once the drainage is cut off, the bacterium in the sinus begins to multiply. The bacteria count can quickly go from hundreds, found in normal sinuses, to hundreds of thousands or even million. You have pus, mucus and air trapped in the infected sinus. Without anywhere to go the fluids in the sinus build up pressure. The pressure turns into pain. Pain in the maxillary sinuses is felt in the cheeks and surrounding areas. One of those areas is your teeth. An infected maxillary sinus will cause pain and sometimes swelling in the area of the cheek. You might feel pain under eye and you might feel pain in the tooth. It could be severe enough that

Patricia M. Bobadilla, D.D.S., Prosthodontist you feel like you have a bad toothache. Not only can the pressure on the inside of the sinus cause pain, It can be caused by pressure on the inside of the sinus, it can be caused by pressure on the outside as well. Along with the mucus and fluids trapped in the blocked sinus, air is also trapped. Any air spaces in your body have to have a pressure equal to the pressure outside your body. When open and not blocked, air flows in and out of the sinuses freely. If there is a change in the barometric pressure, your sinuses compensate the airway is open. When there is a blockage the air in the sinus cannot equalize to the outside air pressure. If the pressure outside increases, that can create a vacuum in the sinus. This causes more pain in the area around your teeth. Another way a blocked sinus can cause tooth pain. The good thing about tooth pain caused by sinus problems is that once the sinus problem is treated properly the tooth pain goes away. Treatment always con-

MOUNT SINAI MEDICAL CENTER Hosts Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Masters Summit

Dr. Joseph Lamelas, chief of cardiac surgery at Mount Sinai, is observed by cardiac surgeons from around the country who came to learn his surgical techniques at the Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Masters Summit).

Five surprising summer habits that pack on the pounds (ARA) - Swimsuit ready? Not for long. Gaining the weight you lost preparing for summer is so easy, you're likely to do it without trying. If you don't stop the eating patterns that unintentionally cause weight gain, you'll never be successful losing body fat. Tom Nikkola, director of nutrition and weight management at Life Time Fitness, "The Healthy Way of Life Company," says Gaining the weight you lost people unintentionally preparing for summer is so sabotage their diet even as they're cutting easy, you're likely to do it calories. without trying. If you don't Here are five ways you may be packing stop the eating patterns that on the pounds without unintentionally cause weight even realizing it: 1. Load up on gain, you'll never be sucsugar cessful losing body fat. You don't have to indulge in sweets or spoon extra sugar over your food to eat too much. If you eat a lot of processed foods, you're probably already eating too much sugar. Nikkola says you can even find added sugar in processed meats. "White flour, bread, waffles, many cereals, chips, granola and crackers are easily converted to sugar as well," he adds. 2. Skimp on protein and fat "Protein and fat are macronutrients that are essential to our health," Nikkola says. "By avoiding these foods, you'll be more likely to have an insatiable appetite." On the flip side, he notes people who include protein and fat in every meal are less likely to overeat and may reduce cravings for carbohydrate-rich or sugary foods. 3. Eat more breakfast cereal "A bowl of cereal is a great way to start the day if your goal is accumulating additional body fat," Nikkola says. Such a breakfast can leave you hungry just a few hours later, and reaching for high-carbohydrate snack foods. Before noon you'll likely be feeling the effects of low blood sugar, like trouble focusing, a reduction in energy and increase in irritability (which only makes you want to eat more). 4. Fill up on fruit and fruit juice Fruit and fruit juice are not synonymous in a healthy diet. "Juice is much more concentrated in sugar, especially fructose, and does not include fiber, which may help reduce your appetite," Nikkola explains. "Loading up on juice is a great way to increase calorie intake, much like drinking soda would be." Even too much whole fruit can lead to too much sugar in your diet. The best way to balance out your fruit and vegetable intake is to eat three to four servings of nonstarchy vegetables for each serving of fruit. 5. Reward yourself after every workout "It doesn't take much to offset what you burn in each workout," Nikkola says. "With a muffin, some chips, or a bowl of pasta you'll replace all the glycogen you burned in your training session and eat enough extra carbohydrates to add to your fat stores." Instead, refuel with whole food and include protein for better recovery. Of course you don't really want to gain weight this summer. Life Time Fitness has an in-house nutritionist on staff at most of its 105 clubs to work with members on their personal nutrition goals.

MIAMI BEACH Mount Sinai Medical Center welcomed cardiac surgeons from across the country to the Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery Masters Summit, which took place on June 14th and 15th. The Medtronic-sponsored event attracted approximately 25 participants and provided an opportunity for cardiac surgeons to share best practices and participate in team training programs on advanced valve repair and replacement techniques. Dr. Joseph Lamelas, chief of cardiac surgery at the Mount Sinai Heart Institute, performed five live cardiac valve procedures, all of which were observed by visiting physicians seeking to learn his techniques and refine their own surgical skills. Dr. Lamelas has performed more than 9,000 open-heart surgeries and more than 1,500 minimally invasive surgeries. He has the best cardiac valve surgery outcomes in all of Florida among doctors who perform many complex cases. In addition, Dr. Lamelas has worked with Medtronic and Miami Instruments to design new procedural-specific surgical tools that allow surgeons to perform minimally invasive cardiac surgeries that result in

quicker healing and shorter hospital stays. In addition to observing live surgeries, attendees also discussed their best practices by sharing case studies and conducting peer reviews of ongoing cardiac surgical cases. Visiting surgeons represented institutions from across the country, including Jackson Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, Tennessee; Stone Oak Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas; St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri; Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Riverside

Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio; and Methodist Texsan Heart Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. The peer-to-peer training programs will continue on a monthly basis, giving participants an opportunity to interact with Dr. Lamelas and his team, as well as receive training on the safe and effective use of the surgical instruments he helped design.

Summer survival tips: The medicine cabinet edition (ARA) - You can't avoid it: Summer activities mean bites, bumps, burns and bruises. Make sure you're ready by stocking up on these medicine-cabinet basics: Over-the-counter pain relievers Summer is the time when people are breaking out golf clubs, gardening tools and baseball gloves. All that activity increases the likelihood of muscle aches, strains and sprains. For basic relief, experts recommend over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers such as naproxen sodium, ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Although most mild injuries can be treated successfully at home, you should see a doctor if you experience numbness or an inability to move without significant pain. Sunscreen and lotions Sunburn can, of course, be prevented by protecting your skin with sunscreen or clothing whenever you're outdoors. But if you forget, treatments such as a lotion that contains aloe vera can provide symptom relief. OTC pain relievers don't heal or prevent damage to skin, but they can reduce the pain, swelling and discomfort associated with sunburn. These are especially beneficial when taken during the first 24 hours of sun exposure. Hydrocortisone, topical creams and antihistamines Insect bites are as much a part of summer as sunshine. If you're stung by an insect and the stinger is stuck in your skin, try to remove it carefully to prevent the release of more venom. For any bite or sting, wash the area with soap and water and apply a cold pack or cloth filled with ice to reduce pain and swelling. A pain reliever, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, may also help with any associated pain. A topical cream containing hydrocortisone can be used to provide itch relief. You can also take an OTC antihistamine containing diphenhydramine if you have a mild allergic reaction. Most people have mild reactions to insect bites and experience little more than an itching or stinging sensation and mild swelling that will disappear within a day or so. Signs and symptoms of a severe reaction can include nausea, facial swelling, difficulty breathing, abdominal

pain, and deterioration of blood pressure and circulation. If any of these occur, you should call 911 immediately. Heartburn medicines Warm weather means baseball season and backyard barbecues - which can also mean repeated cases of heartburn after too many chili dogs and beverages. Heartburn is most often described as a burning sensation behind the breast bone that moves up toward the neck or throat. This occurs when stomach acid irritates the normal lining of the esophagus. People may also experience acid regurgitation with heartburn, which is the sensation of stomach fluid coming up through the chest into the mouth. Less common symptoms that may also be associated with gastro esophageal reflux include unexplained chest pain, wheezing, sore throat and cough, among others. Planning ahead and knowing which OTC treatments may help is essential to keeping your summer gatherings pleasant. Bring along a few over-the-counter treatments, like antacids or H2 blockers, when you head out for summer festivities. People who have heartburn at least twice a week might want to talk to their doctor about taking a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole or lanso-

prazole. Diarrhea medications If your summer vacation plans include traveling to new and far-flung places, it's a good idea to be prepared for certain stomach ailments. Travelers' diarrhea, a digestive tract disorder that causes loose stools and abdominal cramps, is caused by consuming contaminated food or water. Though this illness is irritating and may disrupt a day or two of vacation, it usually isn't serious and can be treated at home. To reduce your risk, be careful about what you eat and drink while traveling. If you do develop diarrhea, it may go away without treatment. If not, bismuth subsalicylate can decrease the frequency of your bathroom trips and shorten the duration of your illness. Tip: When buying OTC medications, you can often save money by purchasing store-brands. Storebrand OTCs have the same efficacy as national brands and meet or exceed Food and Drug Administration quality standards, but cost an average of 36 percent less, according to Perrigo, a Michigan-based pharmaceutical company that manufactures and distributes most of the over-thecounter medications found under storebrand labels at leading retailers, grocers, club stores and pharmacies.

When parents should seek professional help for an out-of-control teen Adolescence can be a tough time for children and their parents. While it is a natural part of childhood development to test boundaries and explore autonomy, how can a parent tell when to call in a professional for help with an out-ofcontrol child? It can be difficult to tell what is normal development and what is beyond the pale, especially between 12 and 16 years of age. There is an established rise in difficulty in the parent-child relationship in the late middle school and early high school years, says Devin Byrd, Ph.D., dean of the College of Health Professions at South University. "Around this age, children are developing abstract thought and autonomy," says Byrd,

who holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is an expert in child and adolescent psychology and development. "Children and teens are finding that their friends have opinions they may want to agree with, which can lead to a loss of authority for parents." While some level of boundary-testing is natural, Byrd says that there are signs that parents can look for to tell if their child needs help. "Some children exhibit externalizing behavior: acting out in school, fighting, stealing and being less tolerant of others' behavior. Some will internalize things. They will become anxious or depressed, withdraw from friends and family, and be less interested in activities and schoolwork," he says.

Other signs could be bad grades, a change in peer groups, and a tendency toward daring, high-risk activities. Sometimes these changes can be tied to a life-changing event, such as divorce or the death of a loved one. But the changes may

Irritable Bowel Syndrome: As many as 1 in 7 have it, but few speak of it (ARA) - It's a disorder that affects between 25 and 45 million people in the United States. Its exact cause is not known and for those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, the symptoms can have a significant impact on their life. It may impact a person's emotional, personal and work life. And there's the additional burden that comes from living in a society where the word "bowel" is rarely spoken. Many people suffering do not see their doctor and those around them may be unaware of the impact or even the existence of the disorder. To raise awareness of IBS and encourage patients to work with their doctors, Abby, an IBS patient, is sharing her personal story in a new public service announcement (PSA), "Educating Americans about Living with IBS." The PSA also features Dr. Lauren B. Gerson, Associate Professor of Medicine at Stanford School of Medicine, who discusses the importance of working with a health care provider to determine if you have IBS and discuss ways to manage IBS symptoms. For Abby, it took suffering through a milestone event to motivate her to see her doctor. From the time she was 22, Abby often felt uncomfortable, experiencing symptoms of constipation, bloating and abdominal pain on a regular basis. Initially, she thought the stress of planning her wedding and moving to a new city was to blame for her symptoms, but the discomfort lasted well after her big day. After trying with limited success to manage her symptoms through lifestyle changes, Abby decided to take control of her life, and went to her doctor to talk about her symptoms. It was then that Abby was diagnosed with IBS. "I had so much bloating, it felt like I had a balloon in my stomach," says Abby, who suffers from IBS-C, or IBS with constipation. "With the help of my doctor, I took action and learned how to manage my symptoms." Working together, Abby and her doctor came up with a treatment plan for her. "I want to let other IBS patients know that they are not alone. They, too, can take the first step to be empowered and speak to their doctor to discuss ways to manage their symptoms," Abby adds. As many as one in seven people suffer from IBS, and about three-quarters of patients are not receiving the care they need to manage their symptoms. There are three main types of IBS; IBS with constipation (IBS-C), IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D) and IBS with mixed constipation and diarrhea (IBSM). Common symptoms include abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, and changes of bowel habits such as constipation and/or diarrhea. While there is not a specific test for the disorder, people who think they might have IBS should consult their health care provider, who can help to diagnose and develop an appropriate treatment plan, based on a complete medical history that includes a careful description of symptoms and a physical examination. "People who have IBS often experience its symptoms differently," explains Dr. Gerson. "Along with changes in bowel habits, some of my patients might feel pain inside the abdomen. Another patient feels like she has knots in her belly which is so uncomfortable that she avoids doing some activities with her family." Together, Abby and Dr. Gerson provide a glimpse of what it is like to live with IBS. This is the first PSA dedicated to IBS in 10 years and was developed with the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD). IFFGD is a nonprofit education and research organization devoted to educating, helping and supporting people affected by GI disorders. To see the PSA, now airing on TV and radio stations nationwide, and to learn more about IBS, please visit AboutIBS.org.

also occur so gradually that a parent may not be able to recognize how bad things have become. Byrd suggests talking to your child's teachers and even your friends and family members to gauge whether a child has gone too far. Overall, don't be afraid to ask for help. It is better to get help too early than too late. Once you have decided to seek professional help, you may be able to find a referral for a therapist from your child's doctor, or from school or church officials. Another option may be to go through your health insurance provider or workplace employee assistance program. When you have chosen a therapist, Byrd offers a few suggestions for your first visit:

* Talk to your child about why you want to seek help, and be open about the process. Don't think you can trick your child into therapy. * Take any notes you have made about your child's behavior, along with any drawings, poems or stories that the child has created. * Go in with your child for the first visit. It will show your child that you are committed to the process. After that, the therapist may or may not invite you back for future sessions.

* Be ready to talk in an open, honest manner and be prepared to make changes alongside your child. Byrd says to remember that "you are not dropping your child off to be 'fixed.' You may well be part of the problem." Depending on the issues involved and the style of the therapist, the length of time your child may spend in therapy will vary. But in general, be prepared for a commitment of two to three months or longer. Therapy can and does help adolescents through what can be a very difficult period in their lives, and you can demonstrate a healthy pattern for living by addressing issues with the help of professionals. "As with any therapy, having a professional take an outside view at the situation can be quite beneficial," says Byrd. "It is much easier for someone else to see what is going on with us than it is for us to see what is going on with ourselves."

You called and they told you to come to their Buying House at 18677 West Dixie Highway in Aventura, FL. Not knowing what to expect, you brought only a couple of pieces of unwanted jewelry and a silver service, no longer in use. Upon arrival, you were buzzed into the store by their private security officer and were met in the lobby by the Director of Buying, Danny. He took you down a warm and inviting hallway to one of several boutique-like rooms. You were asked if you would like coffee or water and was served your bottled water in a crystal stemmed glass.

Danny took out a purchase form, wrote your name and date on the form and after opening up his jewelers light, asked to see what you had brought. He examined your two pieces of jewelry and wrote a value on the form next to a description and then looked at your silver and assessed its value. At that point, you had a decision to make...sell it now or take your copy of the purchase form to show your wife. You decided the price was certainly fair and sold your jewelry for cash. You took your silver service back home to make sure your wife agreed with the sale and showed her the purchase form with the price that was offered. Your wife agreed it was a good price so tomorrow you will take it back, along with the purchase order, and

be given the price listed. What’s more, you have decided to take some more jewelry that has been lying in a jewelry box for years and cash it in too. That is a typical experience at the Global Jewelry Buying House. They have been doing business in New York for 30 years and are now beginning their rapid expansion. More Planned For South Florida Three new Buying Houses are in the works in the Aventura area and more planned in the South Florida area. One of the things that make this business unique, other than their boutique look, is that they don’t sell jewelry at their locations; they only buy from the public. Because they are a well-known International Jewelry Buying House,

they have customers world-wide who buy from them. They provide a liquid global market for previously owned jewelry and for that reason; they are able to offer the highest prices to you. They are the leading global buyer of fine jewelry, diamonds and watches from the public. A GIA Certified Gemologist is on site to examine your diamonds. Converting Gold And Diamonds Into Cash It’s a new concept-the modern way to sell your fine jewelry. You can convert your collection of estate jewelry or diamonds for cold hard cash. Good to know in these economic times. Although it was pointed out that most of their customers aren’t selling because they need the money...they are selling because their lifestyle has changed and they no longer need or want the silver or jewelry. Coins, Gold And Much More They specialize in American Eagle coins. They buy scrap gold, 10k, 14k, 18k, and unlike some, they are the top buyers of gold filled. They buy silver, platinum, rings, bracelets, necklaces, cufflinks, money clips, earrings, chains, brooches, watches, key chains, dental gold, class rings, pins, estate jewelry, collectibles and much more. Global Jewelry Buying House is the largest gold buyer in South Florida. Best of all, you are treated in a professional manner and if you are worried about your security, you will be escorted to your car by their security guard. It’s a no worry, no hassle, and great way to sell your jewelry, watches or collectibles. Global Jewelry Buying House is located at 18677 West Dixie Highway Aventura, FL 33180 Telephone: 305-705-9600. Hours: Mon – Fri 10 A.M. to 5:30 P.M.

CELEBRATE AMERICA Saturday’s beach party brought out large crowds Last Saturday, it was certainly party time at South Beach Park, as hundreds of residents and visitors celebrated America. Youngsters and their parents packed the park for games, fun, and coloring books. A foam pit, water slide, bounce house and bungee jump kept the children active. Perfect weather was the order of the day.

While many communities will celebrate the Fourth of July this Wednesday, the City of Hallandale Beach continued its tradition of hosting America's Birthday celebration the Saturday (June 30) before the holiday.

HEROES AT HOME The Hallandale Beach Area Chamber of Commerce is reaching out to area veterans Tuesday, July 10, offering assistance to meet housing, job training, educational and medical needs. The six-hour forum runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cultural Community Center, 410 SE 3rd Avenue. Lunch will be provided to participating veterans. “Doing For Those Who Did For Us,” is the adaptation of a similar national partnership between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and NBC News, said Hallandale Beach Area Chamber President Carole Pumpian. “I figured it was perfect for our area.” The Heroes At Home project is designed to help those veterans who served the United States and are now in need of assistance. Former Chamber of Commerce President Joe Kessel stepped in, forged a partnership between the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Hallandale Beach, and modified the national program to create the forum. “It’s been tweaked to fit the local needs of veterans,” said Ms. Pumpian. The program will be a fast-paced environment providing 15-20 minute presentations to veterans on a variety of subjects and area services from job training to affordable housing options. “There are about 110,000 veterans in Broward County,” said Owen Walker, Broward County Veterans Affairs manager. “The problem is there is assistance for veterans who meet certain criteria. If you don’t meet those criteria, you fall through the cracks.” Walker said the local, state and federal governments have programs for disabled veterans, but able-bodied veterans who are in need are often overlooked and go without services. The program is not a job fair, but will have experts to help and coach veterans seeking employment. WorkForce One and the Ireachamerica Foundation will have representatives to meet with veterans about job assistance and training. Hallandale Beach CRA will discuss community redevelopment housing assistance programs, and Broward Housing Solutions will discuss additional housing options. Wells Fargo will have a representative to discuss special mortgage programs to assist veterans. Representatives from the Veterans Administration outreach office will discuss programs. Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) officials will host an open discussion on issues and solutions to veterans’ problems. State Representative Joe Gibbons will discuss the role of state government in helping veterans. Federal assistance will be discussed by officials from U.S. Senator Marco Rubio’s office and U.S. Representative Debbie WassermanSchultz’s office. Whole Foods will provide a buffet luncheon for the veterans. For more information, please contact the Hallandale Beach Area Chamber of Commerce at 954-454-0541.

Preparing for the perfect summer barbecue gathering (ARA) - Gathering with family and friends in the summer helps to create enjoyable memories of afternoons and evenings spent with delicious grilled foods, fun games and good socializing. Organizing these gatherings isn't difficult, and with a little practice, you'll be known by your family, friends and neighbors as an expert, both in organizing an excellent outdoor gathering, and in your grilling techniques. To spice up your barbecue menu and make the gathering one to remember, Chef Aaron McCargo Jr., host of Big Daddy's House on the Food Network, has some planning and grilling tips to share. "Summer barbecues should be fun, flavorful and carefree. And, it all starts with a flavorful menu," McCargo Jr. says. "This is the perfect time of year to experiment with flavor combinations when planning your menu. From seasonal fruits and vegetables to marinades and sauces, there are many different ways to combine flavors that best represent the mood or

theme of your celebration." * Prep your food perfectly. Marinate your meat in Glad(R) freezer bags overnight or several hours before to lock in the delicious flavors you're going to be serving. * Gather together some useful, but often forgotten materials that will make life a little easier during your event, like weights or clips, markers and stickers. The table weights are to keep the table cloth down - old unused keys pinned on the corners work well. Markers are so everyone can write their names on their cups for reusing. For a fun twist, encourage people to make up a name, and then guess whose cup belongs to whom. Finally, put stickers on the underside of a couple of plates and mix up the pile. Hand out a door prize to the people who end up using the stickered plates. * Games are also very important, and have a variety on hand for kids and adults alike. Family Dollar offers a fun selection of prizes and activities for everyone,

in every age group without breaking your barbecue budget. Create your own kickball field, or establish a smaller bean bag toss game to encourage a little friendly competition. Another activity perfect for kids is sidewalk art. * When grilling, turn meat only once. For steaks, turn the meat when the juices start to bubble on the top. The clearer the juice, the more well-done the meat. * Apply sauces containing honey, brown sugar or molasses during the last 10 minutes of grilling to prevent the sauces from burning. * Keep a spray bottle handy so you can calm down grill flare-ups, which could blacken the food. * Clean up throughout the gathering, both to make the process easier when everyone's ready to go home after dark, and also to help keep the insects away. Check out Family Dollar for the best value on basic cleaning supplies, such as trash bags, disinfecting wipes, and Scott(R) Brand Paper Towels.

SECRETS TO SUPER STEAKS (ARA) - Why is it that a steak from a restaurant just seems to taste better than what you make at home? Often, it's because the chefs in the restaurant know the secrets of great grilling. "Steak is a summer staple for many home cooks when the weather permits, but things can go awry if you're not clued in to the secrets of how to prepare a great steak," says John Li, senior vice president of research and development for Outback Steakhouse. "As veritable steak experts, and with summer grilling season upon us, we want to help people preparing to try their hands at grilling steak. Li offers some advice for grilling successful steak meals this summer: * Start with the right steak. Build a relationship with your local butcher - either at your grocery store or, if you're lucky enough to have one in your neighborhood, the area butcher shop. Learn where they source their meat, if it's aged and for how long. Many cuts lend themselves to grilling, but sirloin, filet, strip and rib eye remain the most popular. Sirloin and strip steak are usually the best options if you're feeding a large group, as they provide abundant flavor and are usually

Great grilling tips and techniques less expensive than other cuts. * Prep the grill properly. Once you've got the right meat, ensure your grill is ready to cook it to perfection. Start with a well-cleaned grill and preheat it. If you're using a charcoal grill, wait until the coals are white. For gas grills, use a thermometer. Many newer models have built-in gauges on the lids that indicate when the grill is hot enough to use. * Add some seasoning. While the grill is preheating, prep the steak by patting it dry. Removing moisture allows for optimum surface contact with the grill and creates a wonderful seared flavor. Rub with the seasoning of your choice; there are many, but keep in mind simple salt and pepper works well if you're starting with an already flavorful cut. * Get grilling. Once the grill and steak are ready, place the meat on the grill. You can achieve a fancy diamond-shaped grill pattern by rotating the meat 45 degrees when you turn it, but the meat will taste just as good without it. Cooking time will vary depending on the cut of meat and the grill itself. Generally, thinner steaks (about 1 inch

"Steak is a summer staple for many home cooks when the weather permits, but things can go awry if you're not clued in to the secrets of how to prepare a great steak. As veritable steak experts, and with summer grilling season upon us, we want to help people preparing to try their hands at grilling steak.” John Li, Outback Steakhouse

thick) will need about four minutes per side to be rare, five for medium and seven for well done. Thicker steaks (2 inches or more) will need about six minutes per side for rare, eight to 10 for medium and 12 for well done. * Let it rest. Overcooking is a sure-fire way to dry out steak. As soon as the steak

has reached your desired level of wellness, remove it from the grill and let it rest for about five minutes before you serve or cut it. This allows the juices to set well in the meat before you dig in. Not sure where to start? Try this recipe from Outback Steakhouse: 4 rib eye steaks, 12

to 14 ounces each 4 teaspoons Kosher salt 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper 2 tablespoons vegetable oil Evenly season each steak with a teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Coat each steak with a half tablespoon of vegetable oil. This may be done up to

three hours prior to grilling, storing in the refrigerator. Remove from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before grilling. Start the grill. Place seasoned steaks over the hottest portion of the grill and cook on the first side about four to five minutes, rotating 90 degrees after three minutes to achieve restaurantstyle "cross marks." Turn steaks over and cook for an additional three to four minutes to achieve a mediumrare doneness. Remove from grill and allow to rest for five minutes before topping and serving. Of course, even in summer there are times when you just won't feel like cooking your own steak. Whether it's a special night out, a family celebration or you're just in the mood to sink your teeth into something you didn't have to cook and won't have to clean up afterward, restaurant steaks are still a good option. At Outback Steakhouse, for example, guests can enjoy a variety of cuts and preparations that allow for a custom experience, without any of the hassle.
