THE FINAL MONTH!

How important is this year’s election? More voters than ever before are expected to help make a very important decision - at all levels of government.

Larry Blustein

Okay, raise your hand if you’ve had enough of the campaign ads,

phone calls and all those signs that obstruct the beautiful views in our neighborhoods. You can put them down now – you are certainly not alone. I’ll bet a lot of you are just about worn out, but here is some bad news – or good news if you are a politician – we are one month away from what appears to be one of the most important elections of many of our lives. With Twitter, Facebook and every other instant way of communicating, this is, and will be, the most covered and promoted election of all time. Where else can you see your favorite candidate on live streaming video, read what they say instantly on Twitter and every other way of getting the word out? This election is certainly the poster child, if you will, for the age we are all living in, and for

‘CASINO STAN’

Nobody did more to get the facts out about casino gaming than area resident Stan Wertheimer

By Larry Blustein Sun Times There are people you meet, in your every day life, that end up influencing how you approach different situations. Stanley Wertheimer was indeed one of those people. "Casino Stan", as thousands had come to know him over the years, never wanted to draw attention to himself, but this is someone who has always made a difference - for the betterment of himself and those around him.

Back in December of 2006, “Casino Stan” Wertheimer was part of the opening celebration at Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale Beach.

Taken way too soon, Wertheimer, who has spent the past 40 years in South Florida, passed at the age of 69 - still working like he did the day he came from New Jersey. His passing was indeed a shock to many who had come to love and rely on him. ____________________________________ STAN, Page 6A

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 fab-

staff will identify and assess both visible and hidden damage, submit all bills, and take care of any negotiations. There is no out-ofpocket 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.

it's 1st Priority's job to eliminate it. 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. IT'S BETTER TO HIRE 1ST PRIORITY 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 a licensed building contractor for mold remediation and mold assessment has 10 years experience in the industry. They can use that experience to find the leak and fix it quickly, using the latest. state-of-the-art 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 using all new materials. To save the home and business owner time and money, 1st Priority will work directly with your insurance company. Its professional

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?

– 954-458-0635 – sfsuntimes@aol.com – www.southfloridasun.net

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 allergens. 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. 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 with new materials. 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: They Will Take care of The Problem From A to Z 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, sanitize it and restore the area to its original condition, all while working directly with your insurance

POLITICAL FEVER Politics has become our daily source of what we talk about at dinner, at work and just about any time we are dragged into this economy and the way this past four years has not offered any positives – for any of us! I will never turn this into a Democratic vs. Republican column because I am one who believes that we all live in this country, and no matter what the outcome may be in November, we will all go with it and continue to do our part to make this a better economy. If you have read my columns throughout the years, I have never leaned one way or another for a party. It’s immature and certainly not sound to do. In my opinion, it’s really not doing

all your own thinking. Just because a Republican feels one way about something – or a Democrat has a belief in something else – doesn’t mean I agree with everything both say. Everyone has issues and things we all agree and disagree with – so turning it into just a party preference takes all the positives that both sides have and throws them out of the window. WE ALL HAVE PROBLEMS Correct me if I’m wrong, but both Republicans and Democrats are Americans – living with the highest unemployment, rising gas prices, soaring foreclosure numbers and an economy that has not come close to being spiked in a positive way. Win or lose, wouldn’t it be in the best interest of this entire country to combine the two parties’ ideas? To me, that was

– 954-458-0635 – sfsuntimes@aol.com – www.southfloridasun.net

what went wrong the past four years. Both sides had some valid and sound ideas to get the economy rolling, but finger pointing and separating themselves brought us to where we sit right now. Hasn’t seeing local businesses suffer and watching all those homes go into foreclosure enough to wake you up? I am so tired of choosing sides – when we are all on the same side. This is not like two countries running against one another. This comes down to survival. As long as this nation remains divided, we have no chance to recover, economically. You can bet billions on that! Agreeing or disagreeing with what I have to say doesn’t come into play here. There are far too many facts that outweigh anything that you will say to make me feel otherwise. Even the most ardent political

Stan

From Page 1A ___________________________________________________________________

"My dad was one of the most honest and nicest guys you wanted to meet," Jonathan Wertheimer, 39, said. "We all lost such a loyal person who never wanted to hurt feelings, but at the same time carry out his beliefs." As a pool manager at several top-flight condos and resorts in the region, Wertheimer had the opportunity to meet many influential people. It was through those many meetings that he listened to enough ideas how this could be a special year-round destination.

HOW HE GOT HIS NAME One of those grand ideas earned Wertheimer his nickname - "Casino Stan". His never-ending letters and phone calls to newspapers and radio shows were loaded with facts and figures about casino gaming's future in this region. People, such as the late Neil Rogers, listened and applauded his efforts. "You have to keep hitting people over the head to make them understand - but at the same time - not hurt any feelings," Wertheimer was quoted back in the Sun Times in 2005. "The thing you want people to see when it comes to casino gaming is how it will make this a better place - year round." From his last job at the Olympus in Hallandale Beach, to such early year locations at the Newport Hotel, Wertheimer was in the epicenter of what he loved the most - people! From Ali to James Brown, they all knew him, and listened to his always encouraging words. "My dad was always the team guy," Jonathan said. "He didn't believe in being singled out, which is crazy for all he did, especially when it came to casino gaming." THE VOTE To this day, there are a lot of those who lobbied to get slots and other casino games into our local pari-mutuels, but from all those he talked with, and showed what could happen, "Casino Stan" may have been as responsible as anyone for what we have today. "There are letter writers and those who have a purpose," said longtime Hollywood resident Mike Hollis. "I think that Stan definitely served a purpose. He kept the issues fresh and in front of those who mattered. That to me speaks volumes for a man who never received a cent for his efforts." In addition to his son, Jonathan, Stan is survived by his daughter, Marcy, and son, Aaron.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Over the next two months, after the family grieves for the loss of such an icon, there will be a public remembrance that the family will put together for friends, family and those who were in some way touched by what Stanley Wertheimer did during his lifetime.

party lovers are starting to understand that being short-sighted when it comes to one party or another is counter-productive to what we are trying to do in this country. LOCAL MESS? Do not get me started on what’s happening locally. No matter what city you want to look at, it seems that the residents either do not care – or may just not be able to grasp what they are being sold. As someone who has evaluated high school football talent for 42 years, I know where talent ends and character takes over. I am often the person selling these athletes to college coaches who are ready to put down as much as

$300,000 for an education for these student/athletes. There is no way I would ever recommend a football player to a college if there were character issues. You can have the most productive athlete, but that person could have a terrible attitude, which eventually would spread to the rest of the team. It’s not worth it. Again, as we get ready to profile our local

candidates over the next month, read what they have to say, and then check backgrounds and track records. You’ll be amazed at how politicians can try and hide what could be the worst thing for the future of your city. Have something to add to this column – and I hope you do since it’s your future?

‘AROUND THE CITY OF CHOICE’

Keeping he residents informed on how the 2012-2013 budget was developed

HALLANDALE BEACH - One of the most important jobs your commission does for you is to watch every tax dollar. Our professional staff works to propose the budget to us. We then have an opportunity to make changes during workshops and during the public hearings. We can vote to remove items or add items. We then adopt the annual budget and the set the millage rate. The 2012-2013 budget was developed through a lengthy process that started back in January. Over the months of preparation we as a Commission had monthly input along with Staff. Former City Manager Antonio started the budget, but it was completed under the leadership of our new City Manager, Renee Crichton, who started in June. Our City Commission adopted this year’s budget on Monday evening on a 3-1 vote; Vice Mayor Sanders, Commissioner Lewy and I voting yes. Commissioner Ross was absent. This year we have reduced the tax rate from 5.9000 to 5.6833. This means we are doing more with less and this budget is the first in many years we are adding new services and increasing staffing levels to focus on clean City Services. The overall budget is $95 million that includes all funds: General Fund, Enterprise Funds including Water, Sewer, Sanitation, Storm water, Marina and Cemetery and Special Funds Law Enforcement Trust, Police Equitable Sharing, Transportation, Golden Isles, Three Islands, Police outside service and General Liability. The reserve for all funds after this year’s Budget was funded is 28 million dollars. Over the past year we have utilized reserves responsibly to offset cost. Last year we budgeted 6 million dollars, but did not

Mayor Joy Cooper utilize all the budgeted reserves. This often happens due to the fact some projects do not get completed during the year or costs run under budget. Some of the capital projects were not completed and will be completed within this year. This year we are budgeting 6.0. Some of the reserve is to complete capital, pay for new lifeguard services and pay pension obligations. The majority of the Commission would rather use reserves wisely to make sure we are providing the same level of service and paying our bills rather then increase your tax rate. This is even more important this year since there is an increase in sewer cost that will impact every user. The City is still in a good position with our reserves. This is something to be very proud of in light of the rocky economy. Manager Crichton’s first challenge was to address the large sewer bill from Hollywood. She and Staff worked closely on how to address the 19% increase. The end result was $2 base fee increase and 15% on gallon usage. The City does plan annually for this true up and had anticipated the bill to be no more than 700,000. We are increasing the level of service and continuing to invest in our entire infrastructure. This budget includes over 7.0 million dollars in capital and staffing solutions. The main staffing has been for an increase in new

services that include in-house Lifeguard Service for our entire Beach and city pool, a new Clean City Services, marina staffing and parks positions. The City just opened the New Foster Park and we are also expanding our many programs offered at the parks including a New Teen Center. Capital improvements include AIA Lighting Improvements, Beach Renourishment, Compressed Natural Gas Station, Well Field Relocation, Sanitary Sewer Rehab and a new Enterprise System (Main Computer System). The enterprise system is a critical asset that will tremendously impact access transparency and most important, efficiency. I pushed to expedite this project back in January rather then push it off another year. There were some last minute changes to the budget. Com-

missioner Lewy moved to not allow Commissioners in the Defined Benefit Pension plan. Currently Commissioners Lewy and Sanders and I are in a Defined Contribution Plan. The two other commissioners are in the DB plan. This means they are guaranteed a pension benefit from the City for life; rather than a DC plan where if the fund loses money, the employee loses money. This motion passed 3-1; Lewy, Sanders and Cooper voted yes and Ross was absent. This saves the city 100,000 in long term costs. There was a motion to cut all cities advertising in this paper. Currently the City runs a weekly page of city information, announcements and other meeting dates. Commissioner Lewy countered that motion with a suggestion of cutting it in half to 25,000. He even

stated that in our city survey many people use the paper for this type of information. Paper advertizing is cost prohibitive in the two other papers and this paper is our community paper. The motion passed 3-1 with me voting no. I spoke that it is vital to keep all our residents informed in every cost feasible way. The

budget year started on October 1st and it is hard to believe but we will start over again in three months.

BROWARD CENTER FEATURES ENGLISH SYMPHONIC ROCK BAND AND ANNIE HASLAM IN CONCERT Fans have been waiting a long time to hear the rock band Renaissance and Annie Haslam perform their classics with fresh interpretations of their most admired compositions,

including “Carpet of the Sun,” “Ocean Gypsy,” “Ashes Are Burning,” and “Prologue.” The progressive rock ingenuity of Renaissance has been mesmerizing audiences with experimental rock combined with classical motif, since 1971. The haunting five-octave range vocalizations, for Renaissance, has been alluringly characterized by Lancashire’s Annie Haslam. From 2012 to 2013, Renaissance will be touring and performing concerts featuring their masterpiece albums, “Turn of the Cards,” and “Scheherazade,” and other stories, in their entirety, to sold-out audiences at the North East Art Rock Festival in June 2012. The group features the incredible duo of Annie Haslam vocals, and Michael Dunford on guitar, with Rave Tesar on keyboards and David J. Keyes bassist, along with the last two former members of Renaissance and the Annie Haslam Band, spotlighting Frank Pagano, on drums and Jason Hart on keyboards. Today, Annie is not only an accomplished singer and songwriter, but also an artist and fashion designer, and is currently working on a brand new studio album entitled, “Grandine ll Vento,” in tribute to Leonardo Da Vinci. The piece is powerful, poetic and inspiring, to be re-

Hollywood residents helped save nearly 27 million gallons of water in 1 year!

SPOTLIGHT ON HOLLYWOOD

By Raelin Storey, Public Affairs Director

HOLLYWOOD - The City of Hollywood Department of Public Utilities partnered with Broward County and the ConservationPays Program a year ago and has seen residents make remarkable progress in conserving water. Since the program launched, it has saved nearly 73,092 gallons of water per day. That equals 26,678,580 gallons saved in a single year! As more and more residents learn about the program, they’re making pledges to reduce their water usage. So far, over 150 pledges have come in from Broward County residents. That means, this year, ConservationPays is on track to save 30 million gallons of water! City of Hollywood along with 17 other municipalities and water utilities. “By partnering with Broward County, we are able to get the message out to a broader group of residents about the importance of conserving water and how it equals savings on their water bills,” says April Taylor, Administrative Coordinator for the City of Hollywood. “If you are vigilant and reduce your water consumption and water loss, you could see a significant difference on your bottom line.” At one time or another, all of us have been told to shut off the water while brushing our teeth or shaving; to check for leaks in our home; and to avoid over-watering

our lawns. However, everyone may not be aware of how taking these simple steps results in lowering your consumption.  • Turning off the water while brushing your teeth/shaving, can save up to 8 gallons a day. • Repairing a faucet that drips only one drop per second, can save 2,700 gallons per year. • Repairing a silent toilet leak can save you 30 - 500 gallons a day. • Watering your lawns, in accordance with the South Florida Water Management District’s (SFWMD) restriction schedule, can save as much as 25% from water loss.  • Shortening your shower by just 60 seconds a day, can save approximately 150 gallons a month. • Using a pool cover prevents thousands of gallons of water from evaporating and helps keep your pool warm naturally.  “We are hoping people make conserving water a way of life,” says Steve Joseph, P.E., Director of the Department of Public Utilities.  Joseph

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

Inaugural ‘Arts In The Park’ event brings in residents from throughout the city

Hello everyone, History was made in Hallandale Beach on September 29, 2012. The first "Arts In The Park" event was held in the NW. Palms, that coincided with the dedication of the new Foster Park Community Center. The dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony, was initiated by our Mayor, Joy Cooper, and the City Commis-

Bill Julian

sion, at 10 am, followed by a tour of the new facility.

The "Arts Festival began at 12 noon and ended at 6 pm. For the first time in it's history, Foster Road was closed to traffic, from NW. 5th Ave. to NW. 7th Ave. A stage was assembled, and vendors, from arts, crafts, and various foods lined the road, and into the park. Since this was Hallandale Beach event, our vendors were local

Free Admission at Art and Culture Center of Hollywood on Sunday, Oct. 21

HOLLYWOOD - Enjoy three exhibitions at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood for free on Sunday, Oct. 21, the Center’s monthly Free Admission Day. From noon to 4 p.m., guests will have the opportunity to view the exhibitions “Justin H. Long: Bow Movement,” “Alex Triminio: Luminous,” and “Lori Nozick: Walkabout.” Free Admission Day is funded in part by Wells Fargo. In his site-specific exhibition, Miami-based artist Justin H. Long explores his passion for the ocean and sailboat racing with a mixed-media installation that includes a massive sailboat hull. With a subversive whimsy that is at the core of his work, Long breaks new ground in his first Broward County exhibition by claiming sailing as an art medium, not only a sport. The centerpiece of the exhibition is an approximately 60-foot-long hull that is elevated from the gallery floor. This singular work, which resembles the skeleton of a whale, is augmented by paintings depicting important events in sailing history. Long also incorporates a series of videos that capture him racing solo in a sailboat in preparation for future races, as well as maps and artifacts that highlight significant journeys and sailboat lore. Alex Trimino’s exhibition consists of illuminated totem poles that are covered in crochet, knitting, and found objects. In employing such items, the Miamibased artist reveals similarities between modern, high-tech materials (microcontrolled neon lights) and colloquial, low-tech crafts (crochet, knitting and weaving). The works create equilibrium between traditions, technologies, and generations. Old methods and new technologies commingle in ways that explore our connection to today’s reality. Lori Nozick’s site-specific installation focuses on the concept of a passage, a journey through the wilderness. The Miami resident presents life as a walkabout in which we continually explore the unknown in order to discover one’s self in relationship to the universe. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. Free parking is available at the Center, which is located at 1650 Harrison St. For more information on these exhibitions or Free Admission Day, please call 954.921.3274 or visit ArtandCultureCenter.org.

residents, could benefit most from their concession sales. I can tell you, I contributed to our economic stimulus, as I sampled the best ribs, wings, conch fritters, velvet cake, and frozen mango drinks, from every vendor. The entertainment stage featured music, singers, and dancing for all ages to enjoy. The young performers from the Palms Center for the Performing Arts were fantastic as always. Under the direction of Dr. Debra Brown the Palms Center has consistently educated these kids in the art of music, and dance who otherwise would have never have had the opportunity. I was fortunate to have served on the committee, with a great team of residents, that "Talked the Talk", and "Walked the Walk", to

make this dream a reality. It took the efforts of the (P.C.A.C.), Palms Community Action Committee, with Sandy Atkins, in charge, and various City Departments, the City Manager's Office, Police, Fire, and Public Works, to make this a most enjoyable, successful, and safe event, a real family affair. Arts in the Park was more than just a fun day at Foster Park, and the opening of a new Community Center. It will take a while, maybe a few weeks to let all of this process, and realize what a history making event September 29, 2012 really was to the community. The moral of it's residents is at an all time high, and we must not lose this opportunity, and cease the moment now. We have shown our city what a dedicated,

hard working group that has assembled, as one, can achieve, when we work together. Lets make the momentum we have started, continue. This event has broken through the barriers of, "You Can't Do it", to show us your plans., we will work together and make this happen. This is exactly what our city needed, and was long over due. Let's continue to move forward. Longtime Hallandale Beach resident Bill Julian is the President of the Hallandale Beach Historical Preservation Board. Have any story ideas that will help bring back the tremendous past of Hallandale - Hallandale Beach? You can contact Bill at (954) 2747230 or via e-mail at becjuli@aol.com

Choosing the best plan for you is not easy. That’s why you should attend one of Matthew’s seminars or give him a call to meet with you to discuss your best options.

How do you know if there is a better one? OK, your neighbor says her plan is great but when you ask her about the details, she seems unsure herself.

Nine tips to protect your rights as a patient (ARA) - Many Americans put a great deal of trust in our country's health care system and the health care professionals who tend to their medical needs. But from time to time, a medical procedure doesn't go according to plan. When a procedure goes wrong, here are nine tips from FindLaw.com about your rights as a patient: 1. Understand your health insurance. Millions of Americans purchase health insurance with little understanding of what they're actually buying. They assume that when a medical crisis comes up, they're covered, but that isn't always the case. Take responsibility for your health and read your insurance policy to clearly understand what is and isn't covered, and what your financial responsibilities will be in the event of a major medical event. 2. Become familiar with your employer's policies. The Family and Medical Leave Act is a federal law that has established minimum unpaid leave standards and rights for employees who have health problems, sick family members or who are giving birth to or adopting children. Become familiar with the law and any additional benefits offered by your employer if you are or will be facing a medical situation that may make it difficult to work for a

lengthy period of time. 3. Get a second opinion. If you don't like the way you're being treated or don't believe your physician is providing the best possible care, consider seeing another physician. If you're facing a major medical issue and want to understand all of the treatment options available to you, or to confirm the treatment plan recommended by your primary physician, let your doctor know that you're going to get a second opinion. Good doctors generally welcome further consultation with other doctors. If you seek a second opinion, check ahead of time that it is covered by your health insurance. 4. Consider alternative courses of treatment. In times of a serious or critical illness, ask your physician to explain all potential treat-

ments to you, whether or not your health insurance will pay for them. 5. Understand your right to refuse medical treatment. You have the right to refuse medical treatment. You also have the right to leave a hospital or health care facility against medical advice. If you do so, however, most hospitals and health care facilities will require you to read and sign a form indicating refusal of treatment in order to protect themselves from any future malpractice claims. 6. Bring a trusted friend or family member to your appointments. Invite a trusted friend or family member to join you when discussing your health care with your physician. Medical information and options for treatment can be complex. Having another person listening to your doctor can help

you process all the important information and sort out your options. 7. Protect yourself against health care fraud.

Groups attempting to defraud the health care system and/or programs like Medicare and Medicaid may be putting your health at risk through bogus treatments and prescriptions. Stick with well-recognized health care organizations and pharmacies, and carefully watch your medical statements for unusual activity. 8. Keep good records. Keep your own records of your health care treatment and make sure to inform your primary physician of treatment you have received from other doctors. Also keep careful records of your chil-

dren's medical histories, including information about vaccinations, allergies and medications. 9. Consider drafting a health care directive. You may want to hire an attorney to help you complete a health care directive, which designates a trusted person, such as a family member, to make decisions about your health care treatment in the event that you cannot due to illness or injury, including your wishes regarding organ donation.

(NewsUSA) - More than one in three seniors over age 65 fall each year, and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) says 80 percent of these falls are in the bathroom. Due to the multitude of unforgiving and slippery surfaces, bathrooms are very hazardous for the home. Knowing how to get in and out of tubs and showers properly and equipping homes with necessary safety precautions can reduce senior falls, keep them out of the emergency room and possibly extend their life. According to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1.6 million older adults seek emergency care each year for fall-related injuries, fractures or head trauma. In addition to potentially losing their independence, seniors 65 years old and up have a 25 percent chance of dying within six months to a year if they fall and break a hip. Seniors are vulnerable to falls for many reasons -- eyesight and reflexes aren't as razor-sharp as they used to be, not to mention the balance issues posed by diabetes, heart disease, thyroid conditions and various medications. But, another preventative method recommended by physicians is installing a shower or tub built around the unique needs of elderly adults. For example, Safe Step Tub Walk-In Tub Company's new walk-in shower has a foldable chair, flexible shower wand, grab bars, ultra-low step up and other senior-friendly features. And since the cost of retirement is high for many seniors, installation is included in the price.

Many adults are not aware of important vaccinations they need

(ARA) - Which vaccinations should adults get? If you answered, “I don't know,” don't worry - you're not alone. A new national survey of adults in the United States reveals that more than two-thirds don't know which vaccinations they need beyond just the flu shot. Adults need vaccinations not only to protect themselves from serious diseases but also to prevent spreading illnesses to their family, friends and other loved

ones. Millions of Americans get sick from diseases that can be prevented by vaccines each year, causing them to miss work and leaving them unable to care for those who depend on them, including children and aging parents. Even though many diseases can now be prevented by vaccines, there are still nearly 1 million cases of shingles (which is caused by the chickenpox virus) in the United

Atrial Fibrillation: 3 Reasons to Protect Your Heart Health

(NewsUSA) - Health problems associated with atrial fibrillation (AFib) are increasing. According to the Atrial Fibrillation Association, approximately 2.5 million people living in the U.S. currently have AFib, the most common heart rhythm disorder. AFib is an electrical problem that causes the atria (upper chambers of the heart) to beat in an irregular, erratic rhythm, resulting in insufficient blood-flow throughout the body. Sometimes the condition doesn't negatively impact a person at all. Other times, however, it can lead to serious and sometimes fatal health issues like heart attack or stroke. Below, we unravel some of the most prevalent AFib statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and share ways you prevent the condition. 1. As many as 12 million people will have AFib by 2050. To prevent Afib, promote heart health by avoiding risk factors associated with it. Risk factors include old age, high blood pressure, heavy alcohol consumption, sleep apnea, genetics, other abnormal heart conditions and other chronic medical conditions. Keep your blood pressure down by consuming a healthy, vitamin-rich diet, staying active and not smoking. For sleep apnea, consult a doctor or polysomnography technician as a first step. 2. The median age for patients with AFib is 66.8 years (men) and 74.6 years (women). Doctors have noted that atrial fibrillation seems to increase with age. That's why it's especially important to make healthy lifestyle choices and take better care of your heart sooner rather than later. Becoming aware of health problems before they get worse can reduce the damage the body experiences. If caught early, conditions like stroke and heart attack caused by AFib are very treatable. 3. Atrial fibrillation increases risk of ischemic stroke by five times. The CDC reports that AFib causes approximately 15 to 20 percent of all ischemic strokes. About 80 percent don't experience symptoms, so preventing, identifying or treating atrial fibrillation can have a huge impact on these numbers. Since most strokes are asymptomatic, preventive health screenings (www.lifelinescreeninghospitals.com) that can identify the possibility of a stroke are beneficial. Spotting a debilitating stroke before it happens can benefit a person in more ways than one. By implementing healthy habits in your daily routine, you can promote your own lifelong health (www.lifelonghealth.com) and avoid becoming a statistic. Don't become another individual faced with the challenges of atrial fibrillation.

States every year, and almost one out of three people will develop shingles in their lifetime. Also, cases of whooping cough have increased significantly within the last year there have been 26,000 cases of whooping cough reported in the United States as of early September, which is more than twice as many reported at this time last year. To help people get the vaccinations they need, Sam's Club is offering 10 vaccines this cold and flu season at all locations with a pharmacy. In partnership with Mollen Immunization Clinics, the retailer is providing an expanded menu of vaccines administered by registered nurses through Nov. 15.

Specific vaccines include the following: * Flu - Protects against influenza (also known as the flu), which is a contagious respiratory illness * Pneumococcal Protects against pneumococcus, which can cause several infections, such as pneumonia * Varicella - Protects against chickenpox * Herpes zoster Protects against shingles, which is caused by the chickenpox virus * Tdap - Protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (also known as whooping cough), which is a highly contagious respiratory tract infection * HPV - Protects against human papillomavirus, which is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause common conditions, such as warts, as well as more serious diseases, such as cervical cancer * MMR - Protects against measles, mumps and rubella (also known as German measles) * Meningitis - Protects against meningococcal disease, which is a serious bacterial illness that can cause bacterial meningitis * Hepatitis A - Protects against hepatitis A virus infection, which

causes a liver disease * Hepatitis B - Protects against hepatitis B virus infection, which also causes a liver disease “Many adults have not received one or more of the vaccinations that they should be getting, and undervaccinated communities are at a higher risk for local outbreaks of disease,” says Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president of Sam's Club health and wellness. “By offering these vaccines this year, we continue to help our communities live healthy at a low cost and remarkable value.”

New guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone older than 6 months old should receive a flu shot every year. Each year in the United States, one in five people (about 20 percent of the population) is infected with the flu. Getting vaccinated against the flu is important because it is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Additionally, getting vaccinated with

Charles Wu named Director of Development Services

Charles Wu, an architect by training and a certified planner, is the new Director of Development Services in the City of Hallandale Beach. Mr. Wu will oversee the City’s Building, Planning and Zoning, and Code Compliance divisions. A University of Michigan graduate, Mr. Wu is no stranger to South Florida. He is the former Planning Director in the City of West Palm Beach. He comes to Hallandale Beach after serving as the Deputy Director of the Office of Community Redevelopment in Fairfax County, Va. A native of Trinidad, Mr. Wu moved to Taiwan when he was 12. He immigrated to the United States to attend the University of Michigan. Upon graduation in 1987, he joined the planning staff of the City of West Palm Beach for the first time. He assumed managing roles in Palm Beach Gardens before returning to West Palm Beach as Planning Director, a position he held for five years. From West Palm Beach, he assumed the role of Deputy Director of the Office of Community Redevelopment in Fairfax County. “I take jobs that are challenging,” said Mr. Wu. “(West Palm Beach) had a revolving door of planning directors. They lost a lot of good staff,” Mr. Wu

said of his returning to West Palm Beach to work under then Mayor Lois Frankel. After stabilizing the Planning Department, Mr. Wu found his next challenge, Fairfax County. Mr. Wu said he jumped at the oppor-

tunity in Hallandale Beach. “(Hallandale Beach) has a lot of potential; there is a lot of uniqueness to the City,” Mr. Wu said. However, he candidly said, “I missed Florida. I missed the beaches and I missed my friends.”

Seventh Annual Women’s Cancer & Health Event to be held on Oct. 13

Women from throughout the region are encouraged to attend the City of Hallandale Beach’s Seventh Annual Women’s Cancer & Health Event, 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Austin Hepburn Center, 750 N.W. 8th Ave. The event is free and lunch will be served. At 8:30AM, before the Women’s Cancer & Health Event will be the first Stiletto Breast Cancer Walk from the Hepburn Center to the new Foster Park Community Center, 609 N.W. 6th Ave., and back. The Stiletto Breast Cancer Walk is sponsored by Fire-N-Dezire Bikers Club of Miami.  Registration fee for the walk is $15, with proceeds going to support area cancer organizations. “We’ve had women from as far as Pompano attend the event,” said Cora Daise, Hallandale Beach Assistant Director of Human Services, about the Women’s Cancer & Health Event.  “The event is open to all women; they will enjoy free knowledge, prizes, food and fun.” The annual event brings together cancer experts to discuss a variety of cancers that affect women; breast cancer, cervical cancer, and several other cancers. Educational seminars and free HIV screenings will be available at the event. Door prizes will be awarded at the Women’s Cancer & Health Event. The City’s Human Services Department has taken an active role in providing cancer education and screening to the community. In September, the City sponsored the Annual Men’s Cancer and Health Event.  More than 30 area residents attended the free prostate screening and seminars.

Savory fall dishes enhanced with grapes

(ARA) - Beautiful fall vegetables are in season now and make for wonderful dishes that will have your family members saying “yum.” In addition to the traditional fall flavors of produce like squash and cauliflower, California grapes are also in season, having one of the longest, “just-picked” seasons among North American fruits, from May to January.  Always the perfect snack, grapes possess a flavor balance of sweetness and acidity, making them a versatile ingredient for both sweet and savory preparations. When it comes to fall produce, cauliflower is often passed over in the produce aisles in favor of its much-touted cousin broccoli. But roasting cauliflower brings out a hint of surprising sweetness in this robust veggie. Add to that roasted grapes, with their juicy burst of tangy flavor, along with a good sprinkling of ground cumin, and you'll be reaching for cauliflower more often just to prepare this simple and delightful dish. Butternut squash takes on a whole new dimension when baked

with grapes and rosemary and seasoned with a gratin topping.  The crunch of the topping adds another texture component to the “pop” of juice coming from the grapes and the browned edges of the comforting squash.  Rosemary offers a hint of aromatics that fits perfectly into the mix. Roasting grapes is a big trend in finer restaurants, but very easy to do. Roasted grapes can also be turned into a simple sauce, by adding a ladleful of wine, water or broth and reducing the mixture over heat to thicken to a syrupy consistency. Drizzle over pork tenderloins or sauteed chicken breasts, and you'll wonder why you've never done it before. Both featured recipes have an added bonus: They combine fruit and vegetables, which are foods that health experts say we need to eat more of, more often.

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 cups red, green or black seedless California grapes

Preheat the oven to 450 F. Toss cauliflower, 1 1/2 tablespoons oil, salt, cumin and pepper together in a large bowl and spread in one layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Roast 20 minutes and stir the cauliflower. Toss the grapes and remaining olive oil together and add to the baking sheet. Roast 5 to 10 minutes longer and serve.

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grease a 9 x 13inch baking dish. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the squash and season liberally with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 to 7 minutes, then transfer to the baking dish. Repeat browning of remaining squash with another tablespoon of olive oil and more salt and pepper. Transfer to baking dish. Heat another tablespoon of the oil in the skillet and add the onion and rosemary. Season with salt and pepper and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in the broth and scrape up any browned bits on the

bottom. Bring to a simmer and pour into baking dish. Cover with foil and bake until squash is very tender, about 40 minutes. Raise the oven temperature to 450 F. Remove the dish from the oven and take off the foil. Sprinkle the grapes over the top. In a medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan and remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the squash. Bake until top is browned and bubbling, or about 10 to 15 minutes longer.
