Paul Snow, the Hallandale Food Bank and numerous volunteers have fed residents for 21 consecutive years! By Larry Blustein Sun Times For 21 years, Paul Snow has made sure that families across Broward County have food to eat each

Hollywood Coalition of Civic and Business Associations hosts free event

Larry Blustein It’s starting. The signs along the highway, the information stuffed into our mailboxes, the TV and radio commercials, and soon, the worst thing of all – the battles. I don’t know about you, but I almost dread this time of year – or four years – if you happen to be following what’s

going on with the race for the White House. Why do I dislike election time? Well, first of all, when it comes to local politics, it’s become laughable how people you don’t see at events or meetings for two or three years, decide that maybe they will come out and appear to care about their community.

‘AROUND THE CITY OF CHOICE’ National Night Out was a great success!

Mayor Joy Cooper HALLANDALE BEACH - National Night Out was a great success! This year’s event took place at Gulfstream Park on Tuesday evening. The walking track made a perfect venue for many displays including SWAT, FL Fish and Wildlife water craft, community policing teams and our motor cycles. Around the track there were many booths including our Crime Watch, Parks Advisory Board, Relay for Life, CERT, Code Enforcement, ADT alarms Costco, Miami Herald and other vendors. The crowd was presented with a special live SWAT demonstration complete with a takedown and one of our police K9’s. There was also an emergency helicopter demonstration trackside. Kids young and old really enjoyed it. Our Police Department did an amazing job. The city is also lucky to have a wonderful group of Crime Watch and Police Volunteers. Special thanks to Gulfstream for their continued partnership and especially Aldo LaRussa, President of Crime Watch. Last week the city conducted the first meeting after summer break. During the break I had the opportunity to work with the City Attorney, Clerk and City Manager to review some ideas to streamline our agenda. This is not the first time we have reformulated the items to make the meetings move faster. Many cities place multiple business items on the consent agenda. The consent agenda typically is passed by a single motion. The City Attorney requested last year that items be placed on as resolutions. Resolution are passed on roll call votes. The concept of requiring a resolution on items was not an issue. It just added more time to our meeting and conflicted with the consent. It was agreed before break that resolution can be passed on consent without a roll call vote. Right off the bat, this would reduce the length of the meetings so long as not every item on consent was pulled. During break the City Manger discussed what she would like to put on consent. I suggested anything that was discussed before, was part of daily operations or that need approval due to spending thresholds and items that were originally approved as part of our budget. We also discussed the concept of requiring that if items were to be pulled from consent it would require now a vote of the

majority of the Commission. In the past, Commissioners would at length ask questions on consent when they had a week of time to ask questions and even have a pre-meeting with the City Manager before the meeting. This requirement was agreed to by the Commission and for the first meeting worked really well. Another change that I suggested was to move Commissioner, City Manager and City Attorney comments to the beginning of the meeting rather than the end. What has been happening since I requested that the first meeting of the month start later in the day at 1, with the public portion in the evening at 7 pm and with the second meeting starting at 6 PM; not everyone was given the respect to have their comments heard. The policy set by the Commission requires a majority vote to continue after 11 pm and a super majority to go past midnight. As a courtesy I placed in alphabetical order the Commissioners then the Vice Mayor,

myself, City Attorney and City Manager in queue to speak. Come 11 PM some Commissioners spoke and then the vote would take place. Meetings have typically been extended on a 4-1 vote. After 12 it had become an issue and comments were not finished. The new format provides for public comments and then communication from the dais. This way everyone has a chance to review their ideas and concerns without being cut off. The Commission agreed with the change and this too, worked very well. This new agenda format will still allow residents to speak at the beginning of the meetings on items not on the agenda. My policy will remain with the practice to allow for residents to speak on regular City business. Many cities do not allow this level of participation. Typically residents can only speak and ask questions during items listed as public hearings. The City has some very important meetings coming up in regard to

the budget. The city budget workshops have been scheduled for Monday, August 13 starting at 4 PM and then August 14th at 4 PM. The City has posted all the documents on the website. We encourage

all our residents to participate in this process. If you cannot attend your comments and ideas are always welcome. On August 20th the CRA board of directors will hold a board meeting from 6-8 PM.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime with your questions and concerns. I can be reached at 954-457-1318, cell/text 954-632-5700 or e-mail me at

City of Hollywood Neighborhoods Celebrate 29th Annual National Night Out and crime prevention, and work with the Hollywood Police Department to participate in their neighborhood Crime Watch and Crime Watch Mobile Patrol programs. Getting involved can be as easy as reporting suspicious activities and locking your doors to not leaving valuables inside your vehicles.

uled block parties throughout the city to speak with residents about crime prevention. Although National Night Out is officially held just once a year, it is important for residents to educate themselves on safety

By Chadwick Wagner, Police Chief HOLLYWOOD Neighborhoods throughout Hollywood joined communities across the nation to give crime a going away party during the 29th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7. Neighborhoods, Civic and Homeowners’ Associations hosted block parties to encourage residents to get to know their neighbors and partner with the Hollywood Police Department to help keep their communities safe. For National Night Out,

neighbors organized gatherings ranging from small barbeque cookouts with a few neighbors to parties held at recreational and community centers with lots of food and activities for children and adults. Residents also met members of Crime Watch and the Crime Watch Mobile Patrol, Hollywood Police Chief Chadwick Wagner, members of the Hollywood Police Command Staff, Hollywood Police Officers, City Officials and Crime Prevention Specialists. Each year, Hollywood Police Department staff stops at the sched-

National Night Out is designed to: • Encourage neighbors and associations to host a party and celebrate National Night Out with the City of Hollywood. • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships

• Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Since 1984, the first Tuesday in August of each year has been designated as National Night Out. NNO has proven to

be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships in the fight for a safer nation. It is estimated that 30 million people participate in National Night Out each year. – – 954-458-0635 – South Florida Sun-Times /Thursday, August 9, 2012 Page 7A

Blustein From Page 1A ––––––––––––––––––––

major cities never last. In smaller communities, where the voter turnout is low, that may get by, but sooner or later everything catches up. I have said over and over again that I would never make a good politician. First of all, it would be tough for me to promise things to residents that I have no way of delivering. That is what is wrong with politics these days. I would never, ever try and sway a vote on false promises. I wasn’t raised that way. There is a fine line that every voter needs to understand. If your favorite candidate tells you that he/she can change things, before you even cast that first ballot, check it out and see if this person carries weight with those they have to convince. If not, you are actually wasting a vote. Don’t ever vote with your emotions. You could end up hurting yourself and the city in which you live in. The person who came up with “action speaks louder than words” may have not been around too many politicians. As I looked at the sample ballot mailed to me over the past month, I began to go down and look at each race. As I read the

There is a fine line that every voter needs to understand.

If not, you are actually wasting a vote. Don’t ever vote with your emotions. You could end up hurting yourself and the city in which you live in. offices that I knew about, I looked at names. I was surprised! Maybe you are not aware of what those politicians you put into office are doing with your vote, but it wouldn’t hurt to check out the people you send to Washington and Tallahassee. I think you’ll be stunned at how many are NOT doing what they were voted to do. I’m not surprised, and have a sneaky feeling that you aren’t either. If you are bothered by too many things to vote for on the ballot, leave them blank. Don’t you dare give someone a vote based on the fact that you want to get out of the polling place fast. Unfortunately, that is how many of these unqualified and overmatched politicians get into office in the first place. Really!

who are running on fluff. Again, there are too many candidates who are not willing to let the facts speak to the voters. GETTING NASTY What nobody looks forward to is a nasty election. An election that is surrounded by false accusations, sensationalism and a knack of trying to win over voters on what the other person can’t do. What ever happened to the politician that stood up and let the facts speak for themselves? Are those days of running on what you’ve accomplished a thing of the past? “I don’t get caught up in listening to many of the politicians tell me what they are going to do to make my life better,” said Ronnie Klein of Hollywood. “I want my elected offi-

THE FACE-OFFS To me, if you are running for office, it should be mandatory that you are matched in a debate with your opponent(s). This way, we can also see who is running on facts – and those

Each week for 21 years, Paul Snow and volunteers such as former Vice Mayor Bill Julian pick-up and sort through foods bought and donated. They are then distributed to families around Hallandale Beach and surrounding communities.

Food From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––– ed is becoming tougher. The very recession that has gripped this country for the better part of a decade now, has hit home to those who depend on getting some assistance. Snow, who grew up in Massachusetts and owned a number of restaurants had plenty of knowledge how to structure profit businesses. But admits that it was tough to operate and organize a business that had no administrative costs and was run 100 percent by volunteers. "We have done this because it is the right thing to do," Snow said. "Nobody should go hungry. That is why we are the longest running food bank in Broward County. It is all about feeding people." Even though some of the food is donated, which volunteers such as Bill Julian and Joe Kessel - routinely pick up items such as 1,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables (Gordon's Foods in Miami) and breads and pastries (Panera Bread of Hallandale Beach), there are cut-rate costs in bringing in items such as meats, poultry and fish. In addition to the donations that are made from the community and private citizens, the Hallandale Beach Post Office (7,500 pounds) and Julian's School Food Drive (6,000 pounds) provide up to four weeks of food that the Hallandale Food Bank, Inc. doesn't have to

purchase. "We make the runs for perishable and non-persishable items twice a week from Feeding South Florida," Snow said. "They give it to us for a great price, so we can give the families something good to eat." From hamburgers and steaks to chicken, the items are all fresh and never outdated. Snow insists that anything that has an expiration date on it, will not be used. "We want to feed people and not get them sick," he said. "Our fruits, vegetables and meats are all products that are never frozen more than once." Located on the donated property of the Hallandale United Methodist Haitian Mission, the Hallandale Food Bank, Inc. has use of three freezers and a large refrigerator as well as space to store non-perishable items. "The people at this church are so good to us and the cause," Snow said. "Without their generous support, and of course, the City of Hallandale Beach, many would be going hungry each week." Every Thursday, different groups are selected to pick up their items. The groups rotate, coming once every four weeks to pick up their supply. Even though 75 percent of those who are registered in the program are from Hallandale Beach, although they welcome those groups and people who need assistance. When those in the program come to the

Church, they receive a "full" brown bag of canned soups, fruits, vegetables, rice, pasta and tomato sauce - in addition to breads and sweets, a bag of produce and meats, which very few pantries offer. "We tried to total up each bag and look at how much each would cost if had to be purchased," Snow pointed out. "Without the meat items, which vary in price, it was like $80 per box of food."

In addition to Snow, Julian and Kessel, other volunteers who step up every week include Gerald Eddex, Debra Eddex, Nalda Rowy, Diane Akers, Diane Youngblood, Felicia Houston, Paul Lewis, Snookie Ulery, Dorothy Burton, May McCullough, Ann Serano, Christine Rodriguez, Mary Veras, Jack Desseau and Patsor Luc Desseaux. Interested in donating food items? Call Paul Snow at 954-455-0615.

Latin singer Christian Castro brings all his platinum hits to Hard Rock Live By Eleanor Hannan Castro began his singing career in 1992 with the release of his first album Agua Nueva. After participating in various telenovelas and recording a few albums, as a teenager, Castro began his internationalization in 1993, starting with concerts in Puerto Rico. He dedicated a song from his second album, Un Segundo En El Tiempo, entitled, “Puerto Rico” as a way of thanking the Puerto Rican public for supporting his career. The album went platinum in the United States, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Columbia. It opened the door for the then 18-yearold for his song, Nunca Te Olvidaré, “I Will Never Forget You,” launching his career when he won “Best Song of the Year,” at the Latin Billboard Awards. He became internationally known as a teen idol and sex symbol almost immediately after he began touring. In 1994, Cristian released “El Camino Del Alma” and his album hit “Mañana,” meaning Tomorrow. He is now a beloved international artist who has sung all over the world.  Cristian Castro has sold more than ten million albums including one hundred gold and platinum discs.

“Many investors who unnecessarily lose money in the market believe they have no recourse, and that money lost is gone forever. But if the broker who handled the investing acted improperly, the investor may be able to recover losses," says Brad Gucciardo, a partner at Scarlett and Gucciardo, P.A., a Delray Beach law firm that specializes in recovering losses caused by Wall Street fraud and misconduct.

Your Guardian on Wall Street Law firm specializes in recovering stock market losses “Our clients are investors who have been victimized by unsuitable investment recommendations, unauthorized trading, failures to follow instructions, or misrepresentations or omissions of important investment-related information. Many investors do not realize that they have the ability to seek recovery of their losses.” Brad Gucciardo

By Jana Soeldner Danger DELRAY BEACH Many investors who unnecessarily lose money in the market believe they have no recourse, and that money lost is gone forever. But if the broker who handled the investing acted improperly, the investor may be able to recover losses, says Brad Gucciardo, a partner at Scarlett and Gucciardo, P.A., a Delray Beach law firm that specializes in recovering losses caused by Wall Street fraud and misconduct. The securities industry requires stockbrokers to adhere to strict regulations. In handling investors’ portfolios, brokers must consider a number of investorspecific factors, such as investment objectives, risk tolerance, net worth and income. Unfortunately, too often, brokers ignore or try to circumvent the rules. “Wall Street brokers bear a greater responsibility than many people believe with respect to how they invest money entrusted to them,” Gucciardo says. “Today, it is evident that more people are being defrauded and victimized by Wall Street misconduct than ever before. Investors who believe they have been cheated should stand up for their rights and not be afraid to do something about it.” Gucciardo knows what he’s talking about.

Until 2001, he was working for the other side: He had been practicing law in New York City, defending brokerage firms and stockbrokers against claims of fraud and improper conduct. “I often represented brokers who cared nothing about their clients,” he says. “They churned accounts to generate commissions and sold inappropriate and unsuitable products to make more money for themselves. I felt I was defending criminal behavior on a daily basis, and I decided that I could do it no longer. I wanted to be able to sleep at night.” CHANGING COURSE After the tragedy of September 11, 2001, Gucciardo knew it was time to move away from representing Wall Street and become a full-time advocate for investors. So he began representing investors, seeking recovery of investment losses in claims filed against Wall Street brokerage firms and stockbrokers. In 2002, he moved to Delray Beach and in November of 2003, he and Chuck Scarlett, another securities attorney, who had been practicing for years in Boca Raton, joined forces to form Scarlett and Gucciardo. Since then, they have expanded to add two more securities attorneys. The current staff at Scarlett Gucciardo has over 40 years combined experience rep-

resenting parties in securities-related claims and can represent investors anywhere in the country. “Our clients are investors who have been victimized by unsuitable investment recommendations, unauthorized trading, failures to follow instructions, or misrepresentations or omissions of important investment-related information,” Gucciardo says. “Until they found Scarlett Gucciardo, many of the investors we represent did not realize that they had the ability to seek recovery of their losses. It is a shame that most investors feel that they are at the mercy of Wall Street; they are not.” NO HOURLY FEES Scarlett Gucciardo does not charge any upfront or hourly fees. Instead, the firm represents its clients on a contingency fee basis, and thus, earns attorneys’ fees only when the firm recovers losses for its clients. “Unless we succeed, we don’t earn anything, Gucciardo says. “Therefore, we focus on taking cases that truly involve Wall Street misconduct, so our success rate is very high. Doing so enables our attorneys to limit their caseloads, which means we have the time necessary to devote to each case.” The attorneys at Scarlett Gucciardo provide free consultations in which they review in-

Instead, the firm represents its clients on a contingency fee basis, and thus, earns attorneys’ fees only when the firm recovers losses for its clients. vestment activity that has resulted in market losses. Through those reviews, they determine whether losses were caused by brokerage firm or stockbroker misconduct. “We often also work closely with accountants and financial advisors who ask us to evaluate their clients’ investments that have caused substantial losses,” Gucciardo says. “If we identify misconduct, our attorneys move quickly to litigate the customers’ claims.” DISPUTES RAISED IN SECURITIES ARBITRATION Wall Street investment loss disputes most often must be raised in securities arbitration forums. The arbitration forum in which most securities disputes are filed is the

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Office of Dispute Resolution (FINRA). “Claims raised in FINRA are very inexpensive to bring and often result in a recovery of losses by claimants. Furthermore, such disputes are often resolved within approximately 12 months, as compared to civil actions filed in court, which often last years,” Gucciardo says. “And because arbitration proceedings are much less expensive and time-consuming than court actions,

it is cost effective for my firm to take even small claims, which if left only to court would likely never be filed.” Investors, who have unnecessarily lost money, whether the amounts involved are small or large, are entitled to an advocate to address the Wall Street misconduct, Gucciardo says. “My law firm is your guardian on Wall Street,” he adds. “Our goal is to hold stockbrokers and brokerage firms accountable for improper handling of investors’ monies.”

Medical identity theft rising: Steps to protect yourself (ARA) - Two million Americans fall victim to medical identity theft each year, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute, commissioned by Experian's ProtectMyID. While medical identity theft costs victims an average of $22,346, the potential impact can be far greater - medical identity theft could cost some victims their health, or even their lives. Medical identity theft involves the theft of personal information - such as your name, Social Security number or Medicare number - to obtain medical care, purchase drugs or submit false claims to Medicare. The crime can damage a victim's credit rating and even be life-threatening if it causes incorrect information to appear in a victim's personal medical records, warns the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service's Office of the Inspector General (OIG). According to the study, while more Americans now understand just what medical identity theft is, few are taking the key steps that could help prevent it. Only 57 percent of survey respondents check their

medical records for accuracy, and nearly one in five (18 percent) say they don't care about the accuracy of their medical records. "There are specific things that people can and should do to protect themselves from medical identity theft," says Ken Chaplin, senior vice president of ProtectMyID. "People have to be vigilant with their personal information and avoid letting their guard down, even with family and friends." The Federal Trade Commission recommends you take these steps to help prevent medical identity theft: * Before you share medical information with anyone, verify who you're talking to. Never provide information over the phone or through the mail unless you initiated the contact and you're confident you're dealing with a legitimate organization. Be aware that medical identity thieves often try to scam consumers by posing as representatives of insurance companies, doctor's offices, pharmacies and even government agencies. * Protect your information. Keep paper copies of medical or insurance

records and forms in a secure, locked file or drawer. When managing your health or insurance accounts online, be wary of any site that asks you to share sensitive information like your Social Security number, insurance account number or details of your medical conditions. Look for the hallmarks that a website is secure, including a web address (URL) that begins with "https" (the "s" stands for "secure") and a lock symbol in the lower right-hand corner of the page. * Picking through trash is a common ploy of identity thieves. Shred your discarded health in-

“Best Physicians Office Of 2011”

surance forms, bills and medical records before disposing of them. Destroy the labels on your prescription pill bottles and packages before throwing them away. The OIG also offers tips for medical identity theft protection, including: * Treat your Medicare and Social Security numbers and cards as carefully as you would your credit cards. * Be wary of anyone who asks for your Medicare number in exchange for "free" medical equipment or services. If what they're offering is really free,

* Never let anyone use your Medicare ID card. The Ponemon survey found that a growing number of survey respondents (5 percent more in 2012 than in 2011) have allowed a family member to use their personal identification to obtain medical services, including treatment, healthcare products or pharmaceuticals. Doing so is against the law, and may afford unscrupulous individuals the chance to use that information for unauthorized purposes. According to the


Hollywood Gazette


they shouldn't need your numbers.

Ponemon survey, it takes, on average, about a year to resolve an instance of medical identity theft, and a quarter of the survey respondents said it took more than two years. As with a serious medical issue, resolution can be made more challenging depending on how long the problem is allowed to fester. Take an active role in protecting your medical information from identity thieves. Check your medical records regularly and keep an eye on all your financial and credit accounts. Products like ProtectMyID can help. A comprehensive identity theft detection, protection and resolution product, it can help you prevent the damages caused by identity theft. "Medical identity theft hits consumers both medically and financially," says Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of the Ponemon Institute. "For three years in a row, our findings have consistently shown that medical identity theft crime continues to increase in terms of prevalence and costs to the victim."

Disposable insulin delivery device gives people with type 2 diabetes the freedom to go about their day (ARA) - Nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes and the population continues to grow. There are approximately 5.5 million people in the U.S. who depend on daily insulin injections to help them control and manage their diabetes, but more than half of those people do not achieve their recommended glucose target levels, according to the American Diabetes Association. The human body needs insulin to be able to fuel the body's cells with glucose. While the body continuously produces insulin, people with type 2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes, either do not produce enough, or their bodies cannot use the insulin adequately. When there is not enough, or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into the body's cells. If not controlled properly, diabetes can increase the

risk for heart disease, blindness, amputations, stroke and high blood pressure. "Despite the fact that millions of Americans are on insulin therapy for type 2 diabetes, many of them remain far below their target blood sugar levels," says Dr. Marc Sandberg, medical director at The Center for Nutrition and Diabetes Management, Hunterdon Medical Cen-

ter. "This is usually because insulin regimens can interfere with daily activities, cause injection pain, and lead to the embarrassment or imposition of injecting medication in public." Now, a device called the V-Go is paving a new path to insulin delivery for people with type 2 diabetes, all with one simple, disposable device. Made by Valeritas, the V-Go is a

A little white wine may be good for your health Q… Dr. Ron .., Is wine or alcohol really considered good for one’s health…? Is it only red wine that is considered to be beneficial…? What makes it so beneficial? A… White wine lovers, rejoice; contrary to popular perception there are studies that suggest white wine offers as good of a health benefit as red wine… In fact for most people a “moderate” consumption of alcohol in various forms (ie.., beer, whiskey etc.) are good for ones physical, and possibly even mental health… The main reason alcohol is considered beneficial to physical health is because alcohol, when consumed in moderation reduces the bodies’ bad cholesterol, and raises the bodies’ good cholesterol, while also acting as an anti-coagulant… Wine has an added benefit of having substances called antioxidants, which also reduces bad cholesterol… The result: a reduction in prevalence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and stress related illnesses…New studies have also suggested moderate wine consumption may lower risk of ischaemic stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, or vascular dementia. While earlier studies suggested consumption red wine only as being beneficial later studies concluded white wine as being as good, if not better, if consumed in moderation on a consistent level… The phrasing here is important, in that consumption must be done on about a daily basis. If you just drink once or twice a week, a health benefit may not occur. Also, most literature points to a “glass or two” a day as being of moderate consumption. But be careful here if you are like my cousin Moe, a glass could contain up to 12oz!... A clear operational definition of how much is in a glass is sorely needed. (some literature suggest 3-4 oz.) So drink up my wine-loving friends.., but do so responsibly and best to get your medical doctor’s full OK….. And, yes of course if you have a history of alcoholism, or substance abuse let’s just say this article would not apply to you. Dr. Ron

simple disposable delivery insulin device that provides a continuous preset rate of insulin (basal) and on-demand dosing at mealtimes (bolus). The V-Go is applied to the skin each day and can be worn underneath clothing allowing individuals to go about their daily routine. Patients wear the V-Go throughout the day and night - even while showering, exercising, and sleeping - then replace it with a new VGo after a 24-hour period. The V-Go's novel design can provide insulin the way the body is supposed to. Because of the convenience and simplicity of the design, people with type 2 diabetes may be able to have better control on their insulin regimen and live an active and healthier lifestyle. Angela Gaskins has lived with diabetes for many years. "It's a relief to find a product that is simple to use and also helps me have more control and flexibility in getting my insulin," she says. "With the V-Go I can go about my daily routine with little interruption of my schedule. This has helped me stick to my treatment regimen, so that I reach my target blood sugar levels better than before." Valeritas, maker of the device, is committed to helping patients meet their goals and live life on the go. Along with providing 24/7 customer care helpline, Valeritas created an online self-manage-

ment program called VGo Life(TM) through a partnership with the diabetes community network, dLife, enabling patients to track their progress and help them maintain better control of their insulin therapy. The program features a comprehensive diabetes lifestyle program including resources like articles, videos, recipes, polls, quizzes and diet and exercise tips. Valeritas is

committed to providing its patients with greater access to the product, help with reimbursement and co-pay and co-insurance support. For more information about the V-Go, or to find out if V-Go is right for you, call 866-881-1209 or visit or Customer care representatives are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

WANTED LIFEGUARDS! The City of Hallandale Beach is seeking full and part-time lifeguards to stand watch over the City’s waterfront and Municipal Swimming pool beginning Monday, Oct. 1, 2012. Hallandale Beach City Commissioners unanimously voted Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012 to return the lifeguard operations to a City operation. The vote allows the contract with Jeff Ellis Management to expire at midnight, Sunday, Sept. 30. The decision will give the City full control over water safety on the beach and at the pool. Under the existing contract, Jeff Ellis Management was providing lifeguards only on the City’s public beaches and swimming pool. Commissioners voted to expand the City’s beach coverage to include the entire water-

City is seeking full and part-time lifeguards to stand watch over waterfront and Municipal Swimming pool front, from the northern City limit to the Miami-Dade County line. This will include the areas in front of the condominiums. The lifeguards will be in two groups; beach lifeguards will be part of the Hallandale Beach Fire Department, and municipal pool lifeguards will be part of the Parks and Recreation Department. Beach lifeguards will be United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) trained and the pool lifeguards will be American Red Cross lifesaving certified. The City is seeking a beach supervisor, aquatic supervisor, six full-time lifeguards and six part-time lifeguards for the beach, two fulltime and three part-

time lifeguards for year-round protection at the Municipal pool, and six additional parttime lifeguards for season coverage at the pool. Each applicant must pass a physical and background check as a condition of employment. “I want to have them on board by September 17th,” said Hallandale Beach Fire Chief Daniel Sullivan of the beach lifeguards. “I need time to train them.” The goal is to have all the beach lifeguards to be EMT certified. However, they will not need the certification to be hired. They will need to complete the USLA training course, which the City will provide as part of the orientation

Interested in the City Budget? You are invited on Aug. 13 Residents and property owners are invited to join Hallandale Beach City Commissioners at 4 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13, for the first half of a two-day workshop to discuss the fiscal year 2013 budget at Hallandale Beach City Hall, 400 S. Federal Highway. The workshop will resume at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 14. The workshop is one of three scheduled final reviews of the budget. The City Commission will hold two public hearings at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 12, and at 6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 24, for final public comments on the budget. Commissioners are expected to take vote on the first reading of the budget after the first public hearing, and hold a final vote after public comment at the Sept. 24, meeting. The City of Hallandale Beach began working on the budget shortly after the fiscal year 2012 budget was approved last September. Workshops with City Commissioners and residents were held in January, February and March to gather information for the proposed fiscal year 2013 budget. After five Town Hall Meetings to collect comments and suggestions, the City Manager compiled the proposed budget. The 700-page budget can be viewed on the City’s website, HYPERLINK "" However, because of the size of the document, it may take several minutes to download. The City of Hallandale Beach urges residents to bring questions and participate in the meetings. The millage rate is proposed to stay at the current rate of 5.9 mills, or $5.90 per $1,000 of assessed property valuation. This is the same rate as the current fiscal year. Also, this is the Truth In Millage (TRIM) rate sent to Broward County for preliminary tax rate calculations. The millage rate can be reduced, but it cannot be increased.

process. Parks and Recreation Director Cathie Schanz, CPRE also plans to have the Municipal Swimming Pool lifeguards on staff by September 17th to ensure proper training and a smooth transition.

Applications for the positions must be submitted by next Thursday, Aug. 16. To apply for the positions or to view all City openings, please visit the City’s website,, and click on the Personnel Department, or scan

The City of Hallandale Beach is an equal opportunity employer.

Solving problems that damage your home and business WATER LEAKS: DAMAGE HAPPENS QUICKLY It doesn’t take much time for a water leak to do extensive damage to your home or business. In fact, it can happen just hours after the leak occurs. 1st Priority Restoration can find the leak and fix it quickly, using the latest. state-of-theart technology. Its noninvasive, infrared thermal imaging equipment can detect the precise location of the leak within a wall or up to 12 feet underground, greatly minimizing the area of wall or floor that needs to be removed. When the leak is fixed, technicians will fully restore the area to its original condition. WORKING DIRECTLY WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY To save the home and business owner time and money, 1st Priority will work directly with your insurance company. Its professional staff will identify and assess both visible and hidden damage, submit all bills, and take care of any negotiations. There is no out-of-pocket cost for the home or business owner. This helps you to avoid headaches now as well as in the future. The insurance company adjuster wants the best outcome for the insurance company, and may not actively seek out unseen damage that is behind walls or under floors. 1st Priority, however, advocates for the homeowner, and its technicians will use their skills and experience to identify even the hidden damage that may cause problems in the future if it is not fixed. HOW DO LEAKS HAPPEN? Some leaks happen when water gets in from the outside, such as after a heavy rain or flood. Others can occur within your plumbing system and will unnecessarily increase your water bill. Determining whether you have this kind of leak is easy. Simply read your water meter just before leaving the house for several hours or going to

sleep for the night. When you return, or wake in the morning, read the meter again. If no leak exists, the readings should be about the same. If the second reading is higher, you probably have a leak that is driving up your costs and may be causing unseen damage. If you suspect you have a leak, don’t wait. Call 1st Priority Restoration immediately to fix the problem. IS MOLD MAKING YOUR HOME TOXIC? 1st Priority specializes in ridding your home or business of mold that may be making the air you breathe toxic. When mold exists, it can exacerbate symptoms of asthma and other respiratory ailments, as well as cause coughing, sneezing, and headaches. And some people are highly allergic to it. WHAT IS MOLD? Mold is a living organism that can grow very rapidly under certain conditions. It reproduces by emitting microscopic spores that float through the air and land on damp surfaces, where they begin to feed on the material on which they are resting. Thousands of different kinds of molds exist, and some are known al-

lergens. A few produce harmful chemicals called mycotoxins that can seriously affect many parts of the body. But all molds, in the right conditions and in high enough concentrations, can adversely affect human health. Getting rid of mold is vital to keeping the environment in your home or business a healthy one. A JOB FOR PROFESSIONALS Detecting and removing toxic mold is not a simple process, and it should be done by a professional. Using the best technology and tools available, 1st Priority Restoration can get rid of the mold in your home or business before it becomes a serious problem. Mold can grow anywhere that moisture exists. Air conditioning ducts are the most common place, but it can also form behind drywall, under carpets, and on furniture and fabrics. And mold may already be growing on a surface that is not yet releasing enough spores so it is visible. The first step in eliminating mold is to do a professional inspection. Just as they do to find water leaks, 1st Priority technicians will use non-invasive thermal

imaging to find areas of moisture that are hospitable to spores. To make sure they identify the existence of mold at the earliest stage possible, they will do three types of testing: air quality, wall cavity, and tape samplings. The samples are sent to an outside lab, and results are usually returned within 48 hours. GOODBYE, MOLD Once technicians determine that mold exists, they remove it completely. It is not enough to kill it, because injurious chemicals and proteins can remain even in dead mold. Permeable material such as drywall must be treated or replaced. Because spores are released during the removal process, 1st Priority Restoration uses an air scrubber to keep the spores from settling. Then, a special Hepa filtering system effectively traps the spores to clean furniture and other surfaces. After the removal is finished, 1st Priority technicians restore the area to its original condition. OZONE TREATMENT If your home or business has an unpleasant odor due to smoke damage or biohazards,

1st Priority Restoration can help. Technicians will use a highly effective ozone treatment to eliminate the odor and restore the air quality. 1ST PRIORITY RESTORATION: THE PLACE TO CALL 1st Priority Restoration does it all. Whatever the source of damage or contamination to your home or business might be, 1st Priority can identify it, repair it, and restore the area to its original condition, all while working directly with your insurance company. The company provides start-to-finish, 24hour service 365 days a year for repairing water, fire and smoke or wind damage, leak detection and repair, and ozone

treatment. Technicians follow through with debris clean-up, manipulation and packing, storage, cleaning and sanitizing, using the latest technology to restore your property and belongings to its preloss condition. To save you time, 1st Priority can work directly with your insurance company. 1st Priority Restoration provides the fast action and thorough service that are the most important factors in reducing or eliminating structural damage. Disaster does not knock at the door—it occurs unexpectedly. 1st Priority’s goal is to respond quickly and restore your home or business with the least amount of inconvenience to you.

How baking serves up a batch of skills for children, tweens and teens (ARA) - When you think of baking, your mind probably goes right to warm cookies, fruitfilled cobblers or pies and savory bread. While those are all the happy results of spending some time in the kitchen, when children, tweens and teens get involved in baking, they'll come away from the experience with a lot more than just happy taste buds. It's no secret that kids learn while they're at play, but baking is a particularly great way to make learning interactive, effective and fun. With so many positive outcomes wrapped up into one activity, teachers, parents and others responsible for helping young people learn can use baking to create hands-on experiences that relate to everything from science to managing money. Consider all of the ways that baking can apply to school subjects, everyday life skills and a richer food future: * Science - Chemistry goes hand in hand with baking. A range of results can be clearly seen when including - or leaving out

- key ingredients. Biology, agriculture and local food production become real when kids learn where ingredients like flour, butter, sugar, and leavening come from, or the physical changes that occur in a product when substituting ingredients to meet health and nutritional needs. *Math - Baking is an activity that applies sequencing, ordering, fractions, weights, measures, dimensions, temperatures, adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying. Children can learn at all ages, from the early days when they can stack measuring cups, count out the number of ingredients that go into a recipe to more complex tasks for older kids, like working with fractions and calculating the costs, and savings of do-it-yourself (DIY) baking. * Health - As you pick out recipes and ingredients for baked goods, it's the perfect opportunity to talk about the nutritional value and function of the grains, milk, eggs, fruits, veggies, sugars, butter, leavening and salt used in baking. There's sometimes a misperception

that baking can't be healthy, but teaching kids how to divide and control portion sizes, and to bake using a wide variety of ingredients actually helps young people try new foods and ingredients. * Personal economics Learning about managing household resources is a skill that will benefit kids throughout their lives. Baking not only teaches kids how to make delicious foods for themselves, but it also includes lessons about how much it costs when others prepare food for you, how much you can save with a few DIY food skills, saving and managing money. The economics of an active lifestyle includes food skills that save money and time all while burning calories and building traditions. * Literacy - Another critical skill comes with reading ingredient lists, recipe directions and sequencing preparation steps. Combining reading with baking emphasizes comprehension, because kids apply what they're reading to an activity. If you miss a step in the instructions or don't read it

properly, it can have a dramatic effect on what you're baking. But all is not lost - this leads to evaluating the results, problem solving and critical thinking to improve the product. Baking at home was far more common, if not essential, in past generations. Many adults have lost those skills. However, research conducted in 2011 by Mintel for the Home Baking Association showed that adults still know baking brings value to life - 33 percent say they would bake from scratch, if only they knew how. Because no one's too old, or young, to learn to bake, it can be a great way for parents and kids to share a learning experience. And if you try out some of grandma's or greatgrandma's baking recipes, it can be a tradition-rich, multi-generational family affair. In the classroom or at home, there are countless opportunities for kids to gain a deeper understanding through baking. For classroom baking lessons, after-school activities, kitchen science

experiments, a complete baking glossary, resource links and more visit On the site, you'll also find the DIY Baking Channel, where you can watch baking videos and learn how to make anything from fruit tarts and whole grain breads to pizza and Confetti Cornbread. CONFETTI CORNBREAD 1 cup white, yellow or whole grain cornmeal 1 cup all-purpose flour (may alternatively use half whole wheat/half all-purpose flour) 1 or 2 tablespoons sugar, optional 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 large egg 1 cup low-fat milk or skim milk 3 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese or reduced fat cheese 1/3 cup chopped green onions 1/3 cup chopped green, red and/or yellow peppers 1.

degrees F. 2. Grease bottom and sides of 9-inch square or round baking pan. 3. Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar (optional), baking powder and salt in medium mixing bowl. 4.
