Carlos Simmons made a huge impact in Hallandale Beach

Carlos Simmons was one of those men who was a leader. Someone who everyone looked up to and admired for his tireless efforts to upgrade his community, making it a better place to live. Over the past 2 years, Carlos Simmons fought a battle with cancer. One that the Sun Times talked with him about in a column, tracing his fight against this disease that would ultimately take him from all of us way too soon - at 65. Carlos Simmons never once asked "why him" or complained about his disease. He fought it, while still helping others. That was what made him one Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper of a kind. with Carlos Simmons at this year’s Even at this year's HalRelay For Life event. landale Beach Relay For Life event, he and Mayor Joy Cooper did their part to help others who also saw their lives change because of cancer. "Carlos was really a special person," said former Vice Mayor Bill Julian. "He rolled up his sleeves and wanted to help any way possible. No matter what it was. That is truly someone you never forgot." Carlos Simmons was a champion of all that is good and honorable about Hallandale Beach. He never looked for the bad in people, making sure that his approach and outlook were positive. Carlos Simmons passed away Tuesday, September 13, 2011. He is survived by his loving wife Mary; daughter; Vivica Simmons; son, Carlos II; mother, Elisa Simmons and granddaughter; Brieyona Simmons.

ECONOMIC OPTIMISM

Local businesses are doing their part to attract customers

Itʼs late September, and while itʼs certainly not time to start talking about the tourist season, there are a number of positive signs that this could be a much better year locally. With a few more months left in the hurricane season, our eyes are always focused on what the weather could do to change things - dramatically. But instead of dwelling and waiting for something negative to happen this summer, there are a number of locals who have made the most of the hot June, July and August.

You know you need to take care of your oral health for your teethʼs sake, but did you know its also for your heart, your brain - and your whole body? Research shows that if you have an infection in your mouth, it can increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimerʼs disease and even pregnancy complications. For years, healthcare professionals suspected there was a link between oral infections and some medical conditions, but they thought this was because bacteria from the mouth made its way to other parts of the body. But now studies are showing that the inflammation found in periodontal, or gum, disease may play a more specific role in causing or

She has a son to worry about as well. “Hell, jobs of any kind are hard to come by these days,” Harris said. “But I was raised that if you sit home and wait for a job, youʼll be there a long time. I have to work. I have no options, and if it means waiting tables and standing on my feet for 6-7 hours at a time, I am your woman.” While Harris has continued to find jobs that puts food on the table and pays some bills, area businesses have also had to be creative. Local restaurants and sports bars have enticed customers with endless food and drink specials. Itʼs not an option. Something different has to be done.

‘AROUND THE CITY OF CHOICE’

City Manager Mark Antonio upset over ʻunprofessionalʼ audit in Hallandale Beach

HALLANDALE BEACH - The special audit requested by the City Commission a year ago is almost complete. It was highly unusual that the City Commission was copied on a draft of the city audit before City Manager Antonio had an opportunity to review it and make comments. Usually audit work product documents are not made public record until management has had an opportunity to provide a management letter. To say the least, City Manager Antonio was very upset at the lack of professionalism and the inadequate audit that was performed by the company. This dissatisfaction was made quite clear by Mr. Antonio within an hour and half of receipt of a copy of the draft. He immediately addressed many of the deficits found in the documentation. He also confirmed that they had suggested they were going to charge our city an additional $60,000 to finish the document. This obviously was totally unacceptable. City Manager Antonio was confident that with a

Mayor Joy Cooper

little extra work the audit would be complete by November. He also affirmed with the City Commissionʼs agreement to object to any overcharges. This week City Manager Antonio confirmed that the audit was progressing and will be complete by November. On an even brighter note, the audit has become somewhat of a vindication for past attacks on City Manager Mike Good and this City Commission. There are no findings in the audit when it comes to contracts being signed by the City Manager. There were also no findings in developer agreements. Our readers may recall that prior to the last election a few of our residents had pressed the City Com-

mission to perform this special audit. There were four main areas of focus: contracts, development agreements, land purchases and loans. Both the improvement loans and land purchases are part of our Community Redevelopment Agency. I, for one, fully supported the audit of our Community Redevelopment Agency. These types of internal audits are very important management tools to learn where improvements can be made. With the growth in our community and increased complexities in the operations of our $100 million budget I have been willing to continue to push for the hiring of an internal auditor by the City Commission as an added tool for the City Commission for oversight. Over the past 5 years there had been three different CRA Directors. Dent MacGough, who retired after many years of service in the city and two other directors that were let go due to various reasons including lax organization and record keep–––––––––––––––––––– COOPER, Page 5A

ing. Since the inception of the CRA it had only been audited once by the state with no findings. There was one comment for not collecting a check from the hospital district at year end. It was however collected the month after year end. This audit covered over 1000 loan transactions which are still being reviewed. Currently the city is acting like a bank when it comes to the loan management. The CRA provides business incentive loans, affordable housing loans and neighborhood improvement loans. These payments

are set up after closing and are billed and paid according to contract terms. With the turnover in CRA and management, weaknesses in the department will obviously occur. To date, the City Manager has shared with the City Commission that he and the new CRA Director have been evaluating whether or not to keep the loan banking component in house. The second area with land purchases is also in the process of being completed. This part of the audit found weaknesses when it came to internal record-keeping. Staff is still uncovering many documents that were not initially found and should have been part of a major file kept within the CRA offices.

It has been a breath of fresh air to have a high caliber CRA Director in Dr. Alvin Jackson. He has been on board for over six months and has already taken major steps to reorganize and fill staffing needs. The CRA department was moved to the second floor during summer break. He and his staff have been diligently working on a rewrite of our CRA plan and are focusing on our strategic economic development plans. Last Wednesday we conducted the first public hearing to adopt the 2011-2012 tax rate and fiscal budget. There were some changes to the budget which required budget notes. The first was the addition of a $30,000 capital improvement project to complete sidewalks on Diplomat Parkway to connect to Atlantic Shores Boulevard. Currently the sidewalk ends on the approach to the single family homes. Staff was directed to contact the single family homeowners along the area with a design utilizing the least amount of city right of way to create a safe walkway to Atlantic Shores and

Three Islands. It was discussed during the meeting that one of the main priorities and goals of our residents is to have sidewalks and bikeways to access all our amenities throughout our city. Sidewalks sometimes become controversial due to the fact residents are impacted from the construction. There is also a misconception that residential front yards are owned by the residents when in fact it is cityʼs right-of-way. City Commission discussed looking at various designs that will fit within our built out community. We will also remain sensitive to any impacts placement and construction has to existing properties. Another budget note entailed 3,800 to increase a community partnership grant to the Holocaust Documentation Center. The amended amount brought the grant to last yearʼs level of 5000. The original request of 5,000 was reduced since it did not provide for the center to conduct a “Day of Awareness” at the High School. Since the budget workshop the city received a confirma-

tion that they could conduct this educational component again in partnership with HHS. One major issue that came up and will be focused on at a workshop on September 26 immediately before six o'clock budget hearings is the operation of the Three Islands Safe Neighborhood District. It was brought to our attention that a letter which Staff was directed to mail out to each property owner in the area was not mailed. Reverse 911 calls were made to inform residents of the changes and the letters were posted in condominium lobby areas and mailrooms. Due to this Staff mix up, I requested that we conduct a workshop before the next meeting to keep all the residents informed as to staffing changes in the in the Safe Neighborhood District. The City Commission will also be reviewing the Three Islands budget which has a large reserve; it is almost double the operating budget. It should be noted that the districts are self insured. Another budget note during our workshop was a result of our pension unfunded liability.

This amount is over 1.073 million and had to be posted after receiving a letter from the actuary after their evaluation of the pension plans. Every year there is an audit performed on what the city's annual contribution must be. These contributions take into account investment losses and gains. Losses are spread out over a five year period. The city is still recovering from the largest losses in 2008 that were up to 13.0 million in total in the current volatile markets. We are extremely fortunate that we are able to once again access our rainy day fund to offset these liabilities. Once again, next year this will be the main issue to watch. The next and final budget hearing for the 2011 - 2012 fiscal year will be conducted on September 26 at 6:05 PM at City Hall Chamber.

Researchers have found that long term periodontitis, an infection of the gums, can lead to coronary heart disease or atherogenesis, a condition in which plaque forms in your arteries. In fact, people with gum disease are nearly twice at risk for heart disease. • Stroke. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, or have lost significant amounts of bone and tissue around your teeth, you may be at an increased risk of stroke. There is evidence that severe periodontitis is also a risk for developing atherosclerotic plaques, which can cause strokes and heart attacks. • Athersclerosis, also called “hardening of the arteries,” devel-

ops when deposits of facts and other substances in your blood begin to sick to the sides of your arteries. These deposits, called plaque, can build up, narrow your arteries, clogging them like a plugged-up drain. If these plaques ever block the blood flow completely, you could have a heart attack or stroke, depending on the location of the blockage. (Note: Not all plaque is alike. The plaques in your arteries have nothing to do with the dental plaque your dental hygienist scrapes off your teeth. Dental plaque is sticky residue of bacteria, acid, and food particles that can irritate your gums and eat away at tooth enamel.) • Kidney disease. Poor oral health also seems to be linked to chronic kidney disease, which affects

blood pressure and bone health, and can lead to kidney failure and heart disease. Periodontologists have found that toothless adults may be more likely to develop chronic kidney disease. • Mental health problems. Itʼs common knowledge that stress and anxiety can impact your health. But research has now shown, a strong relationship between gum disease and many mental health problems, including stress, depression, distress, anxiety and loneliness. All of these conditions can cause your body to produce more of the hormone corti-

sol which, in increased amounts, can aid in the progression of periodontal disease. • Alzheimer’s disease. A debilitating brain disease that causes dementia, Alzheimerʼs disease affects more than five million Americans today. As researchers seek clues to the causes of this disease, they have found that inflammation, specifically chronic periodontal disease experienced early in life, quadruples your risk of developing Alzheimerʼs. • Researchers are continuing to find links between gum disease and other health conditions, such as obesity, steroid abuse, menstrual problems, menopause, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. • By taking good care of your teeth, getting regular dental

checkups, and treating any dental problems that occur, you can keep your mouth healthy and also reduce your risk of developing a serious medical condition. If you already have one of these health problems, itʼs vital that you take good care of your mouth to keep the

condition from getting worse.

JACOB’S CLASSIC MARKET

Afternoon delight in a food market

In addition to preparing delicious foods daily, Jacob’s Classic Market is revving up for the Jewish High Holy Days. Customers are already requesting catering menus, and Chef Isaac suggests placing your orders early.

By Marylynne Newmark Sun Times Iʼm usually called upon to drop in on restaurants, sample foods, and write an opinion. I love doing it and hearing from readers as to whether they agree or not. Imagine my surprise when the South Florida Sun Times asked me to drop in on Jacobʼs Classic Market in Hallandaleʼs Gulfstream Village. A market?!!! I soon learned that Jacobʼs was far more than a market. This visionary food emporium is an epicurean delight with homemade wonderments and exotic foods from Europe and the Mideast not found elsewhere in South Florida. First of all, the shop sparkles with cleanliness and order. The enticing fresh fruit and vegetable bins are creatively filled like multi-colored works of art. Thereʼs not a blemish to be seen. Healthy eating is everywhere. Packaged nuts and dried fruit greet you at the door. A wagon of olive choices invites you to fill container samples to share with those at home. Large refrigerated open bins are stocked with fresh soups and packaged ready-togo foods prepared fresh daily in Jacobʼs Glatt Kosher kitchens by Chef Isaac. Or, you can choose from a selection of beautifully displayed steaming hot entrees or cool crisp salads ready to eat in the storeʼs family-style sit-down corner or in a shady spot just north of the entrance. Chef Isaac advised me that aside from his daily schedule, creating the pans of great ready-made food for immediate takeout, Jacobʼs has a special crew ready to cater Kosher weddings, bar mitzvahs, brisses and shivahs . “One of our most

memorable parties was for CNNʼs Wolf Blitzer,” said Resnick. “He was visiting South Florida and heard about us. We were flattered and did a great job for him. We still hear from him, and have shipped some of his favorite foods to him while he was on assignment.” Resnick is quick to add that Isaacʼs department is equally pleased to cater small dinners and family events, and can make great recommendations to fit every budget. This month, Jacobʼs Classic Market is revving up for the Jewish High Holy Days. Customers are already requesting catering menus, and

Chef Isaac suggests placing your orders early. So, what did I order on my Jacobʼs adventure? I circled center stage several times. with choices so vast and inviting. Well, since I am a fish and veggie lover, I settled on the Salmon Bruschetta, added a veggie couscous and freshly chopped Israeli salad. As they say in Miami, “Que rico!” Absolutely delilcioso! Or, shifting to Tel Aviv, “Tov mʼOd!! Of course my meal could not end there. My nose brought me to the on-premises bakery with its array of freshly-baked breads, cakes, cookies, bobkas, chocolate-filled cigars and

dark chocolate covered nuts. Chocoholic that I am, the nuts won out. While standing there, I took mental note of the freshly baked pizza sold by the pie or by the slice. Uhoh….that veggie pizza was flirting with me. Oh, well, next time. General manager David Resnick joined me. This a man with a reputation of his own as food manager and wine aficianado for kosher restaurants and markets during the past forty years. “We worked very hard to make Jacobʼs Classic Market Number One in its field,” he says. “We have a multi-talented team of dedicated people who made this happen, and customers who love us almost as much as we love them.” Every product at Jacobʼs Classic Market, whether fresh or packaged, is Glatt Kosher and tightly scrutinized by a mashgiach (a rabbi who guarantees that everything is according to kashruth (strict kosher dietary law).

You never know who will stop by Jacob’s Classic Market to do some shopping. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was visiting the area and heard about the great food.

So, can you go to a higher authority? Jacobʼs Classic Market is very visible from Biscayne Boulevard, at the south side of Gulfstream Village, right on the Dade/ Broward county line on Biscayne Boulevard/

Federal Highway. Drive by, but better yet, go in. More than a market, Jacobʼs is a great place to grab a bite, shop, and bring home some afternoon delight. Surprise your family. Theyʼll love you for it!

Looking for that perfect bottle of wine for the holidays - or any other occasion, Jacob’s Classic Market has some of the finest labels around.

For further information, you can check the store’s website at www.jacobsclassicmarket.com or call the store at 954-456-2099 for pre-holiday hours.

Direct from Broadway to the Broward Center the next best thing to the Beatles comes the tribute band ʻRainʼ

SPOTLIGHT ON STAGE

For more than two decades, RAIN has distinguished itself by focusing on details, reaching their ultimate goal of delivering a note-for-note performance. All their music is without a doubt the most musically, impeccably correct, re-creators of the Beatles music cover band on the scene today, performed live, with no pre-recorded tapes. Rain musicians have worked hard for many years, studying each song and each note, to duplicate the exact sound of the Beatles. Rain performs the full range of The Beatles, live on stage, including the most complex and challenging songs the Beatles recorded in their studio, but never performed for an audience. Together, much longer than the Beatles, Rain has mastered every gesture and showmanship as the legendary Beatles, themselves. From the earliest hits to the later classics as "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Hard Days Night," "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Let It Be," "Come Together," " Hey Jude" and much more, this tribute will take you back to a time "When All You Needed Was Love" and "A Little Help From Your Friends." If you really want to know what the Beatles were like,

this is the band to see and hear. Beatlemania veterans RAIN, bring their Beatles tribute band, duplicating the experience of seeing The Beatles, live on stage, to the Broward Center, from October 4 to 16, 2011. Tickets are $25.25 to $69.25 at the box office located at 201 Southwest Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. For various showtimes and information, call: (954) 462-0222.

formed in the Ziff Ballet Opera House. Stuffed and Unstrung is a completely revamped production that offers audiences a unique (almost R rated) glimpse into the magic of puppetry from the masters themselves, while entertaining with intelligent humor. With cofounder Patrick Bristow as host, the show is a multimedia romp in which a team of six expert puppeteers operate 80 puppets throughout the performance, whipping up a storm of comedic nonsense, which is unpredictable, unruly and provocative. This production with live musical accompaniment, has a wonderful and inventive

cast, never performing the same show twice. It is a one-of-a-kind stage comedy show completely improvised with a twist. "Stuffed and Unstrung" opens at the Arsht Center on October 9, 2011, for one night only, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 and $45 at the box office, located at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. Tickets may now be purchased by calling: (305) 949-6722 or on-line at: www.arshtcenter.org. Contains mature themes. Not suitable for children.

THEIR "ALL YOU NEED IS NOW" TOUR LIVE AT SEMINOLE HARD ROCK: Formed in Birmingham, England in 1978, Duran Duran's early style became the soul music of their youth and the vibrant New York underground music scene of the 1970s, lead by groups known as: The New York Dolls and Velvet Underground, the iconic pop music of David Bowie and bands such as: Roxy Music. Since then, Duran Duran has continuously turned out multi-platinum charttoppers such as "Hungry Like the Wolf," "Rio" and "Save a Prayer." Their "View to Kill," was the only James Bond theme

tune to make it to number one, an accomplishment still remembered today. Other smash hits include the track from Notorious, "Ordinary World" and "Come Undone." The album that was released in March 2011, celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of the band's first release "Planet Earth," with 5 additional tracks, "Mediterranea," "Other Peoples Lives," "Too Bad," "You're Too beautiful," "Diamond in the Mind" and "Return to Now." The album reached the UK chart at #11 and Billboard chart at #29. The most celebrated albums of the band's three-decade career, "All You Need Is Now," hit number one on the ITunes Albums Charts in 15 countries before the release this year. Music video pioneers Duran Duran and special guest Neon Trees will take center stage at the Seminole Hard Rock Live on October 11, 2011, at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $54 to $124 at the box office located on State Road (US 441) in Hollywood.

At the age of 82, Holocaust survivor Israel ʻIzzyʼ Wolman gets to realize a dream of a lifetime

BAR MITZVAH FOR THE AGES Israel "Izzy" Wolman was born in Lodz in 1929. His father was a successful businessman who closed his business early on Friday to prepare for shabbos. Three weeks after the Germans entered Lodz the Jews were required to wear the infamous star. Some Jews who didn't appear to be Jews who didn't wear it but got caught were hung on light poles, left

there until the birds feasted on them. Izzy saw it every day at age 10. He watched the Gestapo take his father on Friday nights to beat him so he would tell them where his money was. He came back one Friday night with most of his teeth knocked out. The next time not before putting his hand on Izzy's head and blessing him he didn't come back. Izzy had a brother three

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING Being reappointed to the Broward County Historical Commission is an honor

Hello everyone, First, I would like to announce that along with the Broward County Commission, (Kriston Jacobs), has reappointed me to the Broward County Historical Commission. I have served the commission for seven years, and I took a break this year. We have so much preservation work to do in Hallandale, and through out Broward County, the Board asked me to return, and I am honored to be a part of the team. Our Hallandale Historical Preservation Board has been very busy the past few month's. I have a report of some current projects we are working on. The Curci House (1925), is open to tours on the first Saturday and Sunday of the month, from 11 am to 4 pm, and it's a free admission. Call for more information, (954) 457-1409. You now can view the new DVD video, of the Curci House and the generations of the family, on the big screen TV. The new Hallandale History Book is on sale for $25.00, and the DVD may be purchased for $10, or both for $30. Broward's oldest schoolhouse (1910), restoration is going full speed, and notice of opening should be in December. It will be done exactly as it was in 1910, with half of the building as a school room, and the other, a museum of Hallandale Historical displays. Now I would like to announce a new Historical project I'm working on that you all can participate in. I wanted to do something to honor our Veterans past and present. Currently I have been gathering photos, and documents of my Father, George Julian Jr. and Mayor Joy Cooper's Father, Peter Ventura who both fought in WW 2. My dad was a Combat Glider Pilot, and O.S.S. Commando, highly decorated. Peter Ventura was a Radio Operator, and Waste Gunner on a B-24, also highly decorated. Both of these men went to hell and back, and their stories need to be documented, and honored. But in our city we have many Veterans that should also be honored for their sacrifice, that have passed on or are currently alive. I am trying to get this display ready for viewing on Veteran's Day in November to be placed in the lobby of the Cultural Center. This will include our service men and women who have served in all wars, past and present. So, I am asking our residents to take part in this effort. You may call me at (954) 274-7230, or E-mail, BECJULI@AOL.COM .

years his senior who looked after him every step of the way. When the Germans created the ghetto in Lodz each apartment was terribly overcrowded.In the ghetto along with other atrocities he saw babies thrown fro windows and Izzy worked to live for three years until the boxcars came to bring him to "safety". A train

that was so full that no one could fall for 21/2 days. Many didn't survive but Izzy lived to reach "safety"...Auschwitz. No, a bar-mitzvah was not to be had. What went on in Auschwitz we all know about but Izzy was still strong enough to work. After eight months he was sent to Hanover to repair train tracks. He

saw a potato but as he picked it up a rifle shot aimed at him and missed but the guard rifle butted him that caused heavy bleeding. The guard offered Izzy a visit to the infirmary but Izzy told him that he'd rather work. After five years of being a Jew in the center of the Holocaust Izzy knew there were no infirmaries for Jews. That wound eventually healed but the scar is very noticeable and 70 years later Izzy has no problem showing it to people. According to Izzy his father's blessing saved him, made him a successful businessman and watches

him every day. Liberated with his brother by the Americans Izzy was 75 lbs. Bedridden for months with his brother nearby he witnessed what still haunts him today-his brother's body succumbed to the torture-3 months after being liberated. Last Saturday, at the young age of 82, decades after so much violence, Izzy was Bar Mitzvahed at the Young Israel of Hollywood- Ft Lauderdale. Congratulations to Izzy and his family members for doing something he could not do 70 years ago.

Victory Center for Autism & Behavioral Challenges students sing The National Anthem at Florida Marlins game

MIAMI GARDENS - The Marlins v. Mets game Wednesday night may not have had a large crowd but there was one group there whose excitement and pride seemed to fill the stadium. They were the family and staff of The Victory Center for autism and behavioral challenges. Wearing purple or royal blue uniform shirts, with the distinctive moon and stars logo, they were cheering well before the game began, giving encouragement to Spencer, Daniel, Evan and Ariana, who stood proudly on the field to sing the National Anthem. The Victory Center, also known as TVC Academy, provides a unique blend of individualized education and social interaction to children aged 3 to 21 with a wide range of challenges, from aspergers syndrome to severe autism. Younger children receive intense (Pictured left to right are Ms. Stephanie, therapy with a 1:1 student teacher ratio. Older stuSpencer, Daniel, Ariana, Evan and dents have a 2:1 student teacher ratio and are Mr. Yosh) placed in either The Victory Academy, where they work towards a high school diploma, or the Victory Vocational program, where they receive job training. For the four very special singers out there on the field The Victory Center is a place where they are both accepted and challenged. As the four Victory Academy students sang our nation's song their smiles were reflected in the tears of joy of their parents and teachers. With an opening like that the game itself becomes almost irrelevant!

Solving problems that damage your home and business

WATER LEAKS: DAMAGE HAPPENS QUICKLY It doesnʼt 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.

vital to keeping the environment in your home or business a healthy one.

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, donʼt wait. Call 1st Priority Restoration immediately to fix the problem.

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.

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 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

GOODBYE, MOLD Once technicians determine that mold exists, they remove it completely. It is not enough to kill it, be-

cause 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.

UV PREVENTION SYSTEM To avoid the return of mold and to retain the high quality of the air you breathe, 1st Priority Restoration can install an ultraviolet light system that connects to your air conditioning. It kills mold spores before they have a chance to create a problem. The UV system will work continuously, helping to keep your AC ducts clear of mold so you will not have to worry that you may be breathing in toxins.

air quality. Cleaning the ducts can get rid of unwanted substances, as well as reduce cooling costs by allowing the air conditioner to work more efficiently. Because a clean system is less likely to break down, it can also reduce repair bills.

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 Priorityʼs goal is to respond quickly and restore your home or business with the least amount of inconvenience to you.

Feeling lonely? Try something new in your life

Probably the number one complaint I hear from clients who suffer from depression is their tremendous feeling of loneliness. Here in South Florida, there are many people who are up-rooted from their original neighborhoods, leaving behind family and friends, and finding it difficult to cultivate new relationships. Many are also widowed or divorced, and long to have a new intimate partner….. So whatʼs the best thing to do?.... Bars do not appeal for many, and some people are too shy for their own good… Well, why not give something new a try…, like computer dating. I know what some of you are thinking… “Iʼm too old for this.., or the people on these services must be losers, or psychopaths...But the truth of the matter is that computer dating can work for singles of any age, and well, you can meet a psychopath just about anywhere. I personally know many people who have had

success with these services. True, you may need to go on many dates before you do finally find someone right for you… But as they used to say on the Coney Island boardwalk; “place no bets, win no prizes.” For those of you still a little squeamish, about trying this type of service, here are a few bits of safe advise. 1. Before going out on a first date, have the other person give you their home phone number, and use a cellular phone at first. Take time to cultivate a good phone relationship, and at the beginning avoid disclosure that is too intimate or detailed. 2. Before going out on your first date, check out the other personʼs history theyʼve given you (ie…, that they truly work where they say they work. 3. On initial dates, give information to a friend on where youʼll be going, and have them call you periodically on your cell 4. Initially, go out on day-time dates only 5. Meet in a popular,

well-populated nonalcohol serving place. Star-Bucks, borders, or Barnes & Noble are usually good bets 6. Follow your gutfeeling. If someone just doesnʼt seem right to you; get up, pay half the bill, and politely, but assertively excuse yourself. 7. Dress nice, but dress down. There a few things better a lonely person can do for themselves than find a nice partner to share life with… Good luck out there…, and by the way.., no Dr. Ron does not own any stock or financial interest in any of these dating services!

What Makes a Successful Diet Plan?

(NewsUSA) - A lowcalorie diet consisting solely of grapefruit, cabbage soup or weightloss milkshakes will most likely cause you to lose weight, if strictly followed. But is it healthy? Not a chance. Almost any diet plan will work for a while, yet up to 95 percent of dieters who lose weight fail to keep that weight off after just one year. According to Dr. Mike Moreno, author of the NY Times bestselling book "The 17 Day Diet," the two biggest obstacles that cause diets to fail are boredom and plateau. That's because most mainstream diets are too complex or restrictive, making it nearly impossible to stick with them for a long period of time. Instead, Moreno emphasizes that weight loss that results in even the smallest changes in body composition can pay off with life-changing benefits. He encourages participants to measure their success, not just in pounds, but also by looking at the overall health benefits to in-

Moreno's "The 17 Day Diet" helps you lose weight with a cycled eating plan that alters the amounts of carbohydrates, proteins and fats you eat every few days. "We call it metabolic, or body, confusion," Moreno explains. Divided across four

clude cholesterol, healthier blood sugar readings, and improved blood pressure. As the founding physician behind BistroMD, the provider of the meal plan for "The 17 Day Diet," Dr. Caroline J. Cederquist, a bariatric physician and family practice physician, agrees that even something as small as a 5 percent decrease in

phases, each is designed to accomplish a different objective: burning fat, resetting the metabolism and teaching you proper portion control and hunger signs. If you want to try The 17 Day Diet but don't want to cook,

you can bring the meals from the popular book to your table by ordering The 17 Day Diet Meal Plan by BistroMD. For more information, visit www.The17DayDiet.c om or call: (800) 4641384.

weight loss is significant with regards to lowering the health risks associated with being overweight. "In my medical practice, diabetic and overweight patients who achieve 5 percent weight loss often have lower blood sugar readings and also have improvements in their blood pressure," says Dr. Cederquist.

COASTAL CLEAN-UP

This past Saturday, September 17, the City of Hallandale Beach once again participated in the annual International Coastal Clean-up. It gave participants an opportunity to do their part in keeping the community clean.

Volunteers do their part to clean up the beaches; find out about the ʻAdopt-A-Shorelineʼ program

When you talk about doing what's best for any city, keeping it clean - from border to border - is essential. Hallandale Beach is certainly no different than any other coastal community - with beach clean-up efforts always a priority. When it comes to getting out and doing your part to keep your community clean, Hallandale Beach residents have been fortunate to have so many who care. This past Saturday, September 17, the City of Hallandale

Beach once again participated in the annual International Coastal Clean-up. Volunteers pickedup trash along the beach and in the South City Beach Park. The main items found were cigarette butts, bottles and bottle caps and plastic bags. Those are items that often do the damage to our environment. Saturday was great to see, and certainly a reminder to do your part to keep our beaches and waterways clean, safe and

beautiful by disposing of garbage properly in designated trash cans.

ADOPT-ASHORELINE PROGRAM The Adopt-A-Shoreline Program allows citizens to participate in the City of Hallandale Beach Litter prevention effort around the Cityʼs beach and along all the water-

ways and shorelines. A volunteer group adopts a 300-500 linear segment of beach or a body of water located in the City and agrees to pick-up litter at least four times per year for a two-year period. At the conclusion of the two years the volunteers may renew the adoption site or the location will be available again.

For those interested in participating in the program please contact the Department of Public Works at (954) 457-1600 for guidelines on participation in the program.

Have you planned your menu for next week yet?

ROSH HASHANAH CELEBRATION

SWEET BRISKET 1 (5-7 lb) brisket, washed and drained 1/2 cup oil 1/4-1/2 cup Coca-Cola 1/2 cup dry red wine 1/4 cup honey 4-5 Tbsp. ketchup 1 onion 1/2 tsp. mustard powder 1/2 tsp. paprika

1. Place brisket in a roasting pan. Chop all seasonings in food processor and pour over brisket. Cover and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. 2. Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit (165° Celsius). 3. Bake at 325° Fahrenheit (165° Celsius) for approximately 4 hours, or until a digital instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the brisket reads 190° for well done. 4. When cool, thinly slice the brisket against the grain. It is very important to slice the brisket correctly. SERVING SUGGESTION: Make gravy with drippings from the meat. Melt 4 Tablespoons of parve margarine in a heavy saucepan. Slowly stir in 4 Tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Cook and stir for approximately 3 minutes, or until margarine just starts to darken. Slowly stir in 2 cups of drippings. Continue cooking and stirring until gravy thickens to desired consistency. Sea-

Cook frozen peas for a total of 20-30 minutes; dried for 35-45 minutes, or until the peas are tender (exact time will depend on the age of the peas). Stir in the chopped cilantro and serve the lubia over the rice, garnished with additional cilantro leaves. Yield: about 6-8 servings

son with salt and pepper. Serve slices of brisket with gravy. 3 tablespoons olive oil Two 10-ounce packages (4 cups) frozen blackeyed peas, or 1 1/2 cups dried black-eyed peas, picked over, drained and rinsed (try frozen blackeyed peas, if available; they are usually more flavorful than the dried variety) One 8-ounce can tomato sauce 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro root (or, if unavailable, chopped cilantro stems) and 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander leaves, plus additional whole leaves for garnish Salt and freshly ground pepper Freshly cooked longgrain white rice

CARAMELIZED ONION AND CARROT TSIMMES WITH CANDIED GINGER Spicy, sweet, and tangysour notes harmonize beautifully in this meatless vegetable-fruit melange. Serve it as a side dish or offer it as a condiment with the brisket or poultry. 3 tablespoons mild olive or other vegetable oil 1 1/2 lbs. (6 cups) onions (preferably red), thinly sliced Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 cups carrots, scraped or peeled, and sliced 1 tablespoon minced candied ginger 1 cup fresh orange juice 1 tablespoon grated orange zest 1 tablespoon fragrant honey 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 cup pitted prunes, quartered

In a large saucepan, cook the garlic in the olive oil until it is softened and just tinged with gold, about 2 - 3 minutes. Add the peas, tomato sauce, cilantro root (or stems), and enough fresh cold water to cover the peas by about 1 inch. Bring the mixture to a boil, and simmer it, covered, over low heat. If using frozen peas, add salt and pepper to taste after cooking for 10 minutes; if using dried peas, add salt and pepper to taste after 20 minutes. Add more water if necessary to keep the peas quite soupy: there should be enough water to form some sauce.

In a 10- to 12-inch heavy skillet, heat the oil and add the onions. Salt and

pepper lightly, and stir well. Cook, covered, over very low heat, stirring occasionally, so mixture does not burn, for about 30-40 minutes, or until the onions are meltingly tender and almost transparent. Add the carrots, ginger, orange juice and zest, honey, cinnamon and additional salt and pepper to taste. Raise heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it bubble for a few minutes, then reduce heat and continue cooking, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender and the onions are golden and syrupy, about 15 minutes. Add the prunes and simmer for 5-10 minutes longer, or until the prunes are quite soft. If necessary, boil for a few minutes over high heat to evaporate any liquid remaining in the pan. Adjust the seasoning. Keep the mixture warm, covered, until ready to serve. The tsimmes tastes best if allowed to stand for at least 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld (or prepare in advance and just reheat before serving.) Yield: about 6 servings PINEAPPLECOCONUT MILK NOODLE KUGEL One 20-ounce can of pineapple rings in natural, unsweetened juices 3 tablespoons maple or brown sugar mild oil, such as avocado, sunflower or al-

mond oil, for greasing pan salt 1/2 cup orzo 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk 1 cinnamon stick 1/2 teaspoon peeled and finely chopped fresh ginger 1 vanilla bean, split 3 large eggs 1/2 cup granulated sugar boiling or scalding-hot tap water, for hot-water bath

1. Preheat broiler. Drain pineapple and arrange in a single layer on a foillined broiler pan. Sprinkle evenly with maple or brown sugar. Broil pineapple on one side only until it is a rich, golden-brown and sugar has melted, about 5-8 minutes. 2. Lightly grease an 8inch square baking dish with the oil. Spread the pineapple pieces (with any sugar drippings), sugared side down, in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. (If there is an extra ring or two, cut in quarters and use to fill in the spaces between the rings.) Set aside. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees. 3. Bring 2 quarts of water and 1 teaspoon salt to a rapid boil. Add the orzo and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender. Drain well, rinse a few seconds under cool water and drain again. 4. While orzo is cooking,

combine coconut milk, cinnamon and ginger in a medium saucepan. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean and add to the pan. Turn heat to low and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes to infuse the milk with the fragrance of the spices. Don't allow the mixture to boil. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. 5. In a large bowl, beat eggs, granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt until thick and light. Add the coconut milk mixture, pouring it through a strainer into the bowl. Discard spices. Add the cooked, drained orzo and combine ingredients well. 6. Distribute the mixture evenly over the pineapple in the prepared pan. Place the pan in a larger baking pan and add enough boiling or scalding-hot tap water to the larger pan to come halfway up the sides of the kugel pan. 7. Bake for 60-75 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. The kugel must cool to set. You can serve it right from the pan, or invert it when cool: run a knife along the edges of the pan, turn the pan upside down on a serving plate, and unmold. 8. Serve the kugel chilled, but not icy cold. Or for a more exotic finale, try it slightly warm (reheat gently). Yield: about 8 servings
