Osteoporosis and Oral Health: The Mouth/ Body Connection Osteoporosis is often considered a “silent” disease one that is associated with few warning signs in the early stages. However, do you know that the early signs of osteoporosis may be able to be seen in the mouth? When a dentist observes bone loss in the jaw, it may be a sign of bone loss in another part of the body. Osteoporosis is one of the most common human bone diseases affecting millions of people, including over one third of females above the age of 65. Osteoporosis is characterized by decreased bone density and weakened bones. As it progresses, osteoporosis can weaken bones to the point that they break under otherwise normal stress. Symptoms of osteoporosis

After a long and rough year, the CRA has finally seen closure • At the heart of this battle was the jurisdiction issue between the OIG and CRA’s By Mayor Joy Cooper HALLANDALE BEACH - Over the past three years, regretfully the Hallandale Beach CRA had been under constant attack from a former commissioner and a small group of individuals. While entitled to their opinion and individual philosophies, they collectively continued to pursue their minority view like a dog with a bone. In my opinion, they pursued their own political agenda. The majority of citizens thought the last election had cleared the negativity. The clouds still lingered since they did not get the results they wanted. I am happy to report a year later that our CRA has finally seen closure. Any further investigations audits will not be perused. This was even confirmed from the blogger “Bull Dog” that also dogged this issue, excuse the pun. The State Auditing Committee will not pursue this small groups’ agenda and that is the last stop for the CRA. From the beginning, the Board of Directors proactively addressed deficiencies that have been confirmed by many sources even the OIG were a result of staffing turn over. Without stable staffing a lack of consistency cohesive internal organization paper work and efficiency we hampered. The board has and will continue to work to improve all our operations, policies and procedures. No matter what, there will always be new innovative ways to reach our goals and even new technologies that will enhance our organization. Over the course of the last three years, these audits and continued battles have cost the CRA up to $40,000 in additional legal fees and hours upon hours of staff time. The Board, our Executive Directors and Attorneys have remained steadfast in the opinion that we have and continue to operate within Florida State States and have con-

ducted business within the law. It is a great day to be finally be vindicated and more importantly move on so the CRA can keenly focus on the great projects we have planned. In my opinion, some counties and individuals will continue to oppose CRAs. This is not a new battle, it has continued over the past ten years on the state level. At the heart of this battle was the jurisdiction issue between the OIG and CRA’s. As a note the OIG still has not responded to our request to bring forward any record, case laws or basis for their pursuit of CRA in our County. The only oversight of the OIG and is a special board that he reports to annual. I have not spoken publicly about my experiences with the OIG since he reported out. I had planned to attend the committee evaluation hearing but was not in town. The following is a letter that was read into the record for me. It was sent to the chair to help shed some light on how the OIG handled our case and what should be improved to pursue the fundamental right of due process. Thank you very much for your public service to Broward County. I was looking forward to sharing these comments at the upcoming public evaluation meeting of the Broward County Inspector General’s performance; however, I will not be in town on Friday. Having first-hand experience of how an investigation is performed places me in a unique position to maybe help to improve the process. It is not my intention to discuss the merits of the Hallandale Beach investigation but my concerns over the lack of due process given to me during the course of the investigation. These suggestions may also help to improve the reporting methods of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). To date, our city has not been informed, why was Hallandale Beach investigation was

started? Was it anonymous, formally filed by a resident, elected official, or did the OIG initiate the investigation himself? At the time of the initiation of the OIG investigation, the City of Hallandale Beach had already commenced our own internal control audit, and was already in the process of making internal changes and hiring new personnel. In both the final report, and as recently as this week, there is not one reference as to why the investigation was initiated thereby utilizing Broward County financial resources on this yearlong investigation . At best, it should have been referenced in all the reports even if it was simply, anonymous. The other big omission in the OIG's reporting is the fact that multiple minority reports were filed by the city based on his investigation. They were attached to the final but not referred to up front. As recently as this week a basic summary was given that did not add the fact that our city’s investigation had been challenged by both the City Attorney, CRA attorney, City Manager, myself and that even the Broward County Attorney and Auditor concurred that CRA's are overseen by the State. This type of disclosure would create a better level of transparency and a true representation of the issues at hand. There is also a concern that I have which is not so easily addressed. “Gross Mismanagement" is a very broad term. Many managerial decisions are not strictly objective, they are also dependent on subjective managerial styles. Every city manager is different and every city is unique. The same issue may be addressed in different ways, each being correct. On what basis is the “gross mismanagement”? It cannot be solely on an Attorney General opinion, hearsay, or the OIG’s opinion but based on

accounting principles or on state law. When I was first informed by my staff of the investigation, I inquired as to who was going to be the legal counsel. Since the CRA attorney had concluded CRAs were not within the OIG's jurisdiction, our city decided that we still would cooperate and the city attorney would be of council. I along with everyone in our city took this investigation very seriously. With that said, I was not going to sit through an interview with any individual agent without representation or a court reporter. I wanted to ensure a proper record could be made. When I arrived with the city attorney and a court reporter for the interview at the OIG’s office, we were told by OIG staff that “we do not allow court reporters in the interviews.” It was not until the city attorney stood up to ask the court reporter to make a formal record of the prohibition from utilizing the court reporting that the OIG staff member changed her position and asked us to wait. After 15 minutes she returned and asked for a few more minutes as they “were working something out.” We were then told we could have a reporter but it could not be anyone that we knew or has done work for our city. Everyone knows that reports are all digi-

tal now and all reporters are certified. We were surprised at the request and the lack of a well thought out policy considering the importance and evidenced gleaned from the interview. In addition, the OIG staff required that I sign a formal letter agreeing to not discuss nor disclose any information about the interview until the conclusion of the investigation. We had to return for another appointment with our attorney and a new court reporter. Based on the above I would recommend that whenever an interview is scheduled by the OIG, individuals should be given the OIG policy in writing and an explanation of the individual’s rights. It should also be clear that the questions and answers are only manually noted by the agents and not recorded. I am presuming that the policy was changed due to our experiences but it should be disclosed that there is the ability to have a court reporter and legal counsel present. Regretfully during the last evaluation the OIG represented they allow court reporters but was not transparent that this was not the case until we pressed his office to allow us the right. Our attorney tried to bring this out. Even though these interviews are “informal”, it was clear that they were not. In my opin-

ion all interviews should be recorded. After a four-hour question and answer session, the interview was summarized in a few sound bites. In addition to the scheduled interviews, I have seen and understand it is a practice of OIG staff to simply show up and interview staff. It is not an uncommon practice for employees to be pulled from their duties without notifying their managers or attorneys, nor are they informed of their individual rights. Not only does this interfere with the operations of our cities, but comes off as a form of intimidation that should not be tolerated. In the course of an investigation, appointments should be made. After our investigation was concluded, I had a chance to finally talk about what transpired with the Hallandale Beach investigation. It is not surprising that many elected officials and managers will not talk publicly about the OIG. I believe it is our duty to standup and work together to improve the process. There should be accountability, mutual respect, and cooperation on all levels to ensure individual rights and home rule are not trampled. In summary, I would recommend several changes to the current investigation process which include, but are –––––––––––––––––––––– COOPER, Page 8A

From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––– ed. With the continued decline of greyhound racing across the country, Mardi Gras (Hollywood Greyhound Track), once a facility that attracted 11-12,000 fans on Friday and Saturday, is now playing to less than 100 - and that adds up to huge losses. As Adkins, Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer for Hartman and Tyner, Inc., addressed the Hallandale Beach Area Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday morning at its monthly breakfast - which was held at Mardi Gras, he didn't hold back his feelings about an industry that is costing him over $2 million a year to maintain. "When I began here back in 1981, this place was packed and greyhound racing was huge and took full advantage of the 240,000 square feet of air-conditioned space," Adkins pointed out. "Now, we face huge losses from an industry that has taken hits from animal rights organizations and others who protest." As he oversees projects in places such as Michigan, Minnesota and West Virginia, Adkins has been able to watch for himself what will happen if the state

of Florida lets him have a sound business plan. That business plan may have to do with elimination of greyhound racing. Something that has been in place since the 1930s. While the original casino gaming plan included having parimutuels as part of the package, which was voted on in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, the sharp decline in dog racing, horse racing and jai alai have made it tough on all the facilities. While the Seminole casinos bask in the financial glow of no taxes and a sweet deal with the state of Florida, facilities such as Mardi Gras have been working against the grain since casinos were approved. The 50% tax rate put Adkins and Mardi Gras in a no-win situation. "We have tried to make the rest of the state see how important this is to all of us down here," said Rep. Joe Gibbons,

who has worked handin-hand with Adkins from the very beginning. "These facilities need to have full gaming and should be able to compete with everyone else. That has been the objective all along." While Adkins has been vocal about what has put his facility behind the 8-ball from the start, he will never give in to the fact that people north of Orlando, who have perhaps the most to say, have no stake in this race - other than to reap the financial rewards from the taxes. You have to give Adkins and this group a lot of credit for not only staying the course and taking huge financial hits, but also looking on the positive side of everything. Remember, Mardi Gras currently has 880 employees and has given $891 million to education. That is something that illustrates exactly what this facility

means to this community. While Rep. Gibbons is coming to the end of his term, one of his final objectives is to continue the push to let the state know that Mardi Gras and others like these pari-mutuel facilities, need to implement their own destination casino business plan that does include a $2 million loss that the track eats up every year. GRAND PLAN As he talked to the Chamber members, Adkins stood beside an artist rendering of a hotel/casino that he talked about nearly a decade ago. If the state allows him to remove greyhound racing from the facility and upgrade the casinos to compete with Hard Rock and other Seminole properties, the entire property along US 1 and Pembroke Road will come alive.

"If we could do things the way they should be done, we have the space to turn all of this into a huge financial plus," Adkins said. "I can see having this showcase hotel with a grand casino and enough space around the current facility to add anything that would help attract a flow of people." Some of the things Adkins spoke about was the addition of retail space and using the entire parcel of property, which is easily one of the most admired

around. At a time when every state but Hawaii and Utah have some form of casino gaming, it has become tougher to compete. But this is Florida where there are many things to divide interests. Beaches, major league sporting events and so many cultural choices have made this a place to be. While the Seminoles made $2 billion dollars last year alone, places such as Mardi Gras, Dania Jai Alai and Gulfstream continue to wait for a solution that will not only be fair, but make sense to everyone. "We have fought this fight right along with Dan and everyone in the pari-mutuel industry," said Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper. "You know what happens here at Mardi Gras greatly affects everything this city does." Have an opinion? Drop us a note at

Medicare From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– The cost of the late enrollment penalty depends on how long you went without creditable prescription drug coverage. The late enrollment penalty is calculated by multiplying 1% of the "national base beneficiary premium" ($32.42 in 2014; $31.17 in 2013) times the number of full, uncovered months you were eligible but didn't join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan and went without other creditable prescription drug coverage. The final amount is rounded to the nearest $.10 and added to your monthly premium. The national base beneficiary premium may increase each year, so the penalty amount may also increase each year. The official website for all the information is MEDICARE.GOV.

YOUR PLAN WILL TELL YOU IF YOU OWE A PENALTY After you join a Medicare drug plan, the plan will tell you if you owe a penalty, and what your premium will be. You may have to pay this penalty for as long as you have a Medicare drug plan. If you had to pay a Part D late enrollment penalty before you turned 65, the penalty will be waived once you reach 65. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU EDUCATE YOURSELF AND LEARN ABOUT YOUR BENEFITS & RESPONSIBILITIES.. WE ARE GLADLY AVAILABLE TO ALL OF OUR MEDICARE RECIPIENTS IN OUR COMMUNITY.

Osteoporosis and Oral Health: The Mouth-Body Connection


Bobadilla From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––––– en, post – menopausal women are particularly susceptible to osteoporosis because diminished estrogen levels may speed up bone loss. Similarly, young women who are very thin and do not produce enough estrogen to menstruate, or those with eating disorders, may be at increased risk for osteoporosis.

Other risk factors include: • Heredity • Lack of exercise • Calcium deficiency • Smoking • High caffeine and/or high alcohol consumption • Certain medications (such as steroids) HOW CAN OSTEOPOROSIS AFFECT YOUR ORAL HEALTH? Besides causing weakened bones, which can lead to fractures throughout the body, osteoporosis can also have significant affect your oral health. In advanced stages, osteoporosis can lead to tooth loss or erosion of the jawbone. Once teeth are lost, the jawbone can begin to lose its shape, which can affect your ability to eat, drink, and communicate effectively. Osteoporosis can also increase the risk of periodontal (gum) disease. PREVENTION - KEEP YOUR TEETH AND BONES STRONG! Most people, especially women, will reach their peak bone mass by the time they are in their early 20’s, from then on only maintenance of existing bone is possible. Therefore the best prevention of osteoporosis should start in adolescence since it

may be a critical time for bone mass formation. Calcium is essential to building strong bones and adolescents should also be encouraged to consume less soda as the phosphoric acid in most cola drinks can limit calcium absorption. Ways to prevent osteoporosis for adults include: • Daily intake of the recommended amount of calcium women – 1200 mg and men 800 mg, and over age of 65 years 1500 mg. • Perform weight bearing activities and muscle strengthening exercises. • Eat a healthy diet, including calcium and vitamin D. • Do not smoke • Reduce the amount of caffeine and alcohol consumed. • Visit your dentist regularly. Osteoporosis and Oral Health in older people: Tooth loss (edentulism) and osteoporosis are two of the common major health problems among older people. Osteoporosis occurs when the bone becomes less dense and more likely to develop fractures, and commonly affects bone in the hip, spine, and wrists. Various medical studies produce a link between osteoporosis and bone loss in the jaw, which supports and anchors teeth. Studies in Florence and other cities say that jawbone deterioration contributes to tooth loss, which affects around a third of US adults 65 and older. According to studies, women who have osteoporosis are three times more likely to experience tooth loss than those who don’t. Loss of alveolar bone, the part of the jaw-

bone that supports teeth, has been found to loosen up teeth and develop tooth loss. The link between gum disease and tooth loss has already been established, but the relationship between bone and tooth loss has only been found recently. Some researchers and experts also suggest that decreased alveolar bone density makes more susceptible to gum disease, thus increasing other dental health risks. Oral bacteria and the body’s immune system may break down the bone and tissue that holds teeth in place. Since the bacteria flourishes in the gums, the body naturally fights these, but the gums and teeth may also be affected. To answer these issues, research suggests that dental X-rays may help as a screening tool for osteoporosis. Aside from oral cancer screening, other dental examinations help healthcare professionals detect diseases in other body parts. Dental x-rays are found to be highly effective in distinguishing people with a high risk of osteoporosis from those with healthier bone density. Dental concerns like receding gums, tooth loss, and ill-fitting dentures may also help indicate low bone dentistry. However, treatments for osteoporosis may not be beneficial to oral and dental health. More research and experiments are necessary to establish the relationship between oral bone loss and osteoporosis. Scientists and healthcare professionals are hopeful that efforts to optimize bone dentistry will positive affect

and medical history with your medical team. When your medical and dental teams have the same information, we will all be aware of anything that could affect your dental and overall health.

When it comes to questions you may have about Osteoporosis and Oral Health - or any dental related concern - the staff at Broward Dental Implants can always point you in the right direction.

dental health. OSTEOPOROSIS AFFECTS YOUR DENTAL HEALTH A current complex dental issue is the concern about osteoporosis medications causing healthy bone to die. There are things you need to know if you are taking these medications. Please ask your family dentist about this and he will help educate you on what you need to know. There are studies indicating the biphosphonates in osteoporosis medications can cause a serious dental condition called “osteonecrosis” a rare condition in which healthy jawbone dies. Early research shows that certain cancer patients who take and intravenous biphosphonate are more likely to develop osteonecrosis than other patients. Here is what is important for you to know if you are taking a biphosphonate. Tell us if you take an osteoporosis medication. Having your current medical history is critical when we plan your dental treatment. You need regular check-ups, especially if you will undergo cancer treatments. Regular exams will

help us to identify any unusual oral changes while they are in their early and most treatable stage. Before you begin any medical treatment, tell your physician and oncologist about dental issues. This will help your medical team plan your treatment and monitor any effects from dental procedures we perform. Tell your doctor if anything out of the ordinary occurs in your mouth. This includes bleeding gums, pain, an infection or an unusual sensation in your mouth. Update your dental


YOUR MOUTH CAN BE AN INDICATOR Some indicators may be: • Loose teeth • Gums coming detached from teeth • Severe gum disease • Dentures that don’t fit well • Difficulty eating or speaking If your Dentist detects any of these signs, they may take x-rays, which can show the density of the jawbone and the bones around the teeth. Over time, xrays can show if there is a decrease in the bone density, which may signify an advanced stage of osteoporosis. As always, please call our office so we can examine you and intercede early. “Change your smile, Change your life” (954) 456-1939!

Ralph's International Market is your smoked meat destination for the holidays

When it comes to smoked meats, there is nobody who offers more of a variety than Ralph’s International Market in Hollywood. From ribs to chicken and lamb, your tastebuds will come alive with rubs and a special wood smoke.

HOLLYWOOD - As they lineup at the lunch counter at Ralph's International Market, Chef Juan points out to the many customers an array of smoked meats that have been slow cooked on the woodburning smoker right outside the front door. As customers choose from various cuts of meats, Chef Juan explains the process that is quickly becoming the trademark of this impressive international grocery store that remains a true Hollywood gem. Owner Pat Lucci with his roots going back to Buffalo - and a culinary past that has circled the globe during his days in the U.S. Navy - has started to corner the market on smoked meats. Not just the same chicken and brisket that many others are attempting,

which happens to be huge sellers, but anything you can imagine. "What we set out to do when we purchased the smoker was to give the people of this area something they never had before," Lucci pointed out. "Not only do we have an array of different woods we use in the smoking process, but the rubs are truly something special as well." SMOKING ALL MEATS With the tourist season upon us, and more visitors heading to this area, it's the perfect time to offer up such delicious smoked meats such as lamb, whole pig, ham, duck, pork loin, fish and just about anything else that you can think of. Perfect for a private party, perfect for beach lunch; everyday is an occasion when you are on vacation to

Ralph’s International Market 3701 North 29th Avenue Hollywood, FL 33030 954-923-9037 – 954-925-6775 954-925-5338 Fax HOURS Monday – Friday (7:30 AM-6:00 PM) Saturday (8:00 AM – 6:00 PM) Sunday (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM)

Have you made plans for Thanksgiving?

For the first time this year, Thanksgiving dinner will be very special with an order from Ralph's International Market. For just $99, the smoked turkey dinner will feed 15 people and include such delicious items as mashed potatoes, vegetables, stuffing, gravy, rolls and an apple or pumpkin pie. With a one week advance (954-923-9037) notice required on every holiday order, turkey can be replaced by a whole pig, pork loin, brisket, whole chicken, duck or ham. "This year, we are going all out to please our customers and make this holiday a lot easier for them at a low price," Lucci explained. "We are very excited about getting the chance to use this great smoker to prepare such a festive meal."

• Delicious smoked turkey with all the holiday trimmings for just $99!

"The combination of the rub we use and the hours of smoke that we infuse in everything has really changed the playing field for us. We have been able to experiment with new types of foods to slow smoke with our Montreal seasoning as a rub." CHEF JUAN RALPH'S INTERNATIONAL MARKET

While Chef Juan, left, keeps a close eye on the smoker, owner Pat Lucci runs the unique Ralph’s International Market in Hollywood.

enjoy yourself and Ralph's International Market offers homemade food a low prices. "The combination of the rub we use and the hours of smoke that we infuse in everything has really changed the playing field for us," Chef Juan admits. "We have been able to experiment with new types of foods to slow smoke with our Montreal seasoning as a rub." While appealing to everyone is the objective, Lucci knows how much Canadians love smoked meats, and reproduces the recipes that they are used to. Having spent a lot of time in that region of the country - and growing up in Buffalo he understood what would be the big seller. He also realizes that parties and other events will provide just the forum for his customers to try something unique and tasty. "Until you've sampled one of our smoked meats, you simply have no idea what you are missing," Lucci pointed out. "Ribs, pulled pork, Polish Sausage, corned beef and so many other great things are

being prepared daily by our staff." As Chef Juan helps a customer with a smoked chicken platter for lunch, he explained the process and gave an insight to the woods and rubs that have started to give this market a true identity. Cutting the chicken for each order, you can see how juicy and fresh each piece is. That's what brings customers coming back for breakfast, lunch and the opportunity to bring home some of the same goodness that they have been serving for months. BREAKFAST AND LUNCH TIME SPECIALS "Our lunches are the best you will get," Lucci said. "Look for yourself and you will see how fresh and appealing everything looks and tastes." Where else can you get 2 eggs, choice of meat (bacon, ham or sausage), choice of home fries, oatmeal or grits, toast and coffee included for $2.99? Or maybe choose one of their other items from the menu at the same low prices. The break-

fast special can’t be beat! How about a daily lunch special from $4.99 to $5.65 that includes one entree and two sides cooked fresh every day? How about a Cuban sandwich, or Gyro, Reuben, or one of the other tasty sandwiches from the grill? For those who have already sampled the great prepared foods at Ralph's International Market, they already know what to expect on their next trip to the facility. WHAT A TREMENDOUS SELECTION For those who are new to the shopping experience, they will find nearly every Eastern European and Middle Eastern country has something in the spacious store. From Russian, Croatian and Latvian - to Bulgarian, Israeli, Lebanese, Polish and many other countries, there are cheeses, pickles, sauces, waters, cookies, frozen foods and freshly prepared items. The wine and beer selection is endless. Wines from over 20 countries and beers with alcohol content

much higher than you would find that was made in this country. "Our objective is to give our customers the opportunity to have their next event catered - with so many great foods," Lucci said. "With all the holidays quickly coming up, it's time to come by and start making your plans." EVERYDAY MEALS If you do not want to cook this week, Ralph's International Market can make things very easy for you. When you see the different foods that are ready to take home, you will be impressed. Full meals that will impress every member of your family as well as aisles of international foods and beverages that are unique and imported from all over the world. Don't forget to take home some of Buffalo's famous products - such as Weber's Mustard, Chiavetta's Marinade, P.J.'s Crystal Beach Loganberry Syrup and hot wing sauce from the one and only Anchor Bar, are all available to the public right here in Hollywood.

Two of the most popular smoked meats are brisket and duck, which the customers have raved about. The chicken is smoked fresh daily.

Construction is expected to begin this week to re-open Beach Access 1

Construction is expected to begin this week to re-open Beach Access 1 located on the north side of Parker Towers, 3140 S. Ocean Drive. The beach access was closed early this season because of safety concerns caused by erosion. To protect the public, the city erected barriers, left photo, to prevent residents from using the access. The City obtained state and county permits early this week and plan to begin the construction immediately. The City projects the work will be completed within two weeks. The project will include construction of wooden stairs from the top of the access, see right photo, to the shoreline. The Hallandale Beach Public Works, Utilities and Engineering Department will perform the work. (Photos courtesy the City of Hallandale Beach Public Relations).

HOLLYWOOD - Daniel Setton has learned plenty about business over the years. The one thing that he has found in his many ventures is to give the customer exactly what they want. His return to the Blue Star Taverna in Hollywood illustrates how much he missed the excitement of great food and entertainment, serving Kosher Mediterranean cuisine and offering so much in this "5-star" facility, which overlooks heavily-traveled U.S. 1. As the owner of the successful DSH Oakwood Jewelers in Hollywood, Setton and his wife, Helaine, felt that upgrading what was in place before was the only way to take this restaurant to new heights. "We knew that this

time around, we were going to really get involved and put everything possible into making Blue Star Taverna a success," Setton said. "It was all about offering the best food possible and giving our diners a major entertainment option." In hiring Jaffa, Israel trained Chef Al to head up all culinary efforts at the restaurant, Setton has ensured that his customers will have the best meal around. In fact, he calls his newest addition to this growing family one of the best chefs he has ever been associated with. Blessed with the talent to create such dishes as Beef and Chicken Shishkabob ($19.95), 16 oz Grilled Rib-Eye ($29.95), Lamb Chops ($39.95), Schnitzel ($19.95) and delicious

"He has added delicious couscous to a menu that already includes such favorites as Falafel, Grape Leaves and the freshest fish around." In addition, the Hummus that Chef Al makes is considered to be the best in south Florida and is served alone with fresh pita bread as well as various dishes such as mushrooms and dinner combinations. Desserts are also a centerpiece of the restaurant with Baklava being among the most popular and sure to bring closure to a satisfying dining experience. WINE AND DRINK

What to do if your child is accused of being a bully • Every day, nearly 160,000 children miss school because they are scared (BPT) - It's a phone call that most parents can't imagine receiving. Your school's principal has requested a meeting because your child is being suspended or expelled ... for bullying. While some parents might look at bullying as a part of growing up, in fact it actually has reached epidemic proportions across the country. More than 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year, according to, a social issues advocacy group. Every day, nearly 160,000 children miss school because they are scared of being bullied, notes the National Education Association. What's more, many incidents of bullying go unreported because kids are afraid to report them. Bullying can range from physical and/or verbal abuse to online or elec-

tronic harassment. Forty-nine states now have anti-bullying laws on the books. And according to, the nation's leading website for free legal information, students accused of bullying are at risk now more than ever of being suspended or expelled, and may even face civil fines and criminal penalties. So what should you do if your child is accused of bullying? Here are some tips from * Know your school's policies about bullying. Many schools are required by law to publicly state their policies and procedures related to bullying. Some also require students and parents to sign forms acknowledging awareness of the policies. Familiarize yourself with the rules and discuss them with your children. Similarly, if your child is ac-

cused of bullying, you should make sure you understand your state's laws. * Cooperate with school officials. Don't be quick to judge or shift blame for your child, the victim or the school. Work with your school's officials to understand exactly what happened and your child's role.- Cooperate to the extent that you feel appropriate to resolve the issue to avoid the involvement of law enforcement. * Be prepared: You may not get the full story. Your child and/or other children involved may give you a skewed version of what happened. Even school officials, anxious about potential litigation, may offer a different account of the incident, or be reluctant to become involved in an incident that may have primarily occurred off campus,

after school hours. * Police may become involved. Based on the severity of the incident and the number of students involved, local law enforcement may become involved. You should fully cooperate with police and seek the assistance of an attorney specializing in family law if your child is at the center of the incident. * The media may become involved. In a growing number of cases, local and national news media are reporting on bullying incidents as awareness and sensitivity to the problem grows. The victim's parents may grow impatient with their school and law enforcement officials and take their case to the media. While many media organizations have policies against naming minors in a story, the names of both cyberbullies and their victims have become public, and then reported by the media, when other students re-

veal those names on social media, or when hacktivist groups become involved. In addition, social media websites and search engines are being targeted through the legal system by the parents of victims to reveal the names of cyberbullies who hide behind anonymous names. * Find the source for your child's acting out. Is your child angry about a home situation such as a pending divorce or a parent who needs to work two or more jobs to make ends meet? Is he or she struggling with schoolwork? An underlying problem may call for counseling for your child. Also, carefully examine your relationship with your child - are you modeling good interpersonal behaviors? * Understand that you may need an attorney. Immediately seek legal counsel if the victim's parents announce their decision to file a lawsuit against the school and/or

the alleged bully. To learn more about bullying and the law, visit

SUN TIMES CLASSIFIEDS Winter renovations to boost home energy efficiency, add value (BPT) - It's that time of year again, when the cold wind blows outdoors and your home works as hard as it can to keep you warm and comfortable indoors. Yet your home may be working harder than necessary, while inflating your energy bills in the process. By making a few home renovations this winter, you can boost energy efficiency, save money and add value to your home in the long run. Now is a good time to make energy-efficient renovations. More than 90 percent of the 116 million homes in the United States are expected to have higher heating expenditures this winter compared with last winter, mainly due to changes in energy prices, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Heating and cooling account for about 54 percent of a home's utility bills, according to Because of this, it makes good sense to make efficiency improvements now. Here are some tips for making your home run more efficiently this winter. Change your furnace filter. A dirty furnace filter can restrict airflow and increase energy use in your home. Keeping your furnace clean, updated and properly adjusted can save about 5 percent on heating costs. To increase the efficiency of your furnace, replace or clean the filters once a month during the high-use months. Upgrade to a more efficient furnace. Consider upgrading to a more efficient and reliable furnace. For example, the Trane XC95m gas furnace has a fully modulating gas valve and a variable speed fan for efficient, consistent warmth throughout your home.-As the industry's first fully modulating furnace, its unique technology prevents your home's system from overshooting the set temperature, eliminating temperature swings and moderating your system's energy usage. Reduce heat loss from windows. Ten to 25 percent of your heating bill each month can often be attributed to heat lost through your home's windows , according to Replace old windows with more energy efficient ones so your heating system doesn't have to work as hard to manage your home's desired temperature. Keeping shades and draperies open during the day will also take advantage of the sun's warmth and allow for a more efficient system. Create an energy command center. Some of the newest technologies literally put home energy control at your fingertips. For instance, with a Trane ComfortLink II Control you can monitor indoor and outdoor temperatures, adjust your HVAC system for energy efficiency and learn when it's time to change a filter or schedule routine maintenance - all from a 7-inch touchscreen. It comes paired with an energy management system that analyzes your home's energy usage 24/7 and reports how much is being spent on electricity. Choose ENERGY STAR products. Your home's appliances and electronics account for close to 20 percent of your energy bills, according to Using ENERGY STAR-certified products - which incorporate advanced technologies that use 10 to 15 percent less energy and water than standard models - throughout your home could save nearly $900 over the lifetime of the products. Schedule seasonal maintenance. During the heavy-use winter months, it's a good idea to schedule an HVAC system checkup. A qualified dealer can perform preventive maintenance to ensure your heating system is operating properly and safely and advise you on ways to improve energy efficiency.

You Are Their 1st Priority. Using the latest technology to restore your property to its pre-loss condition 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. A small area of mold and moisture can spread to big damage, 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 noninvasive 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-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 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 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. HOW DO LEAKS HAPPEN? Some leaks happen when water gets in from the outside, such as after a heavy rain or flood. Others can occur within your plumbing system and will unnecessarily increase your water bill. Determining whether you have this kind of leak is easy. Simply read your water meter just before leaving the house for several hours or going to sleep for the night. When you return, or wake in the morning, read the meter again. If no leak exists, the readings should be about the same. If the second reading is higher, you probably have a leak that is driving up your costs and may be causing unseen damage. If you suspect you have a leak, don’t wait. Call 1st Priority Restoration immediately to fix the problem. IS MOLD MAKING YOUR HOME TOXIC? 1st Priority specializes in ridding your home or business of mold that

may be making the air you breathe toxic. When mold exists, it can exacerbate symptoms of asthma and other respiratory ailments, as well as cause coughing, sneezing, and headaches. And some people are highly allergic to it. WHAT IS MOLD? Mold is a living organism that can grow very rapidly under certain conditions. It reproduces by emitting microscopic spores that float through the air and land on damp surfaces, where they begin to feed on the material on which they are resting. Thousands of different kinds of molds exist, and some are known 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 com-

pany. The company provides start-to-finish, 24-hour 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 pre-loss condition. To

save you time, 1st Priority can work directly with your insurance company. 1st Priority Restoration provides the fast action and thorough service that are the most important factors in reducing or eliminating structural damage. Disaster does not knock at the door—it occurs unexpectedly. 1st Priority’s goal is to respond quickly and restore your home or business with the least amount of inconvenience to you.

The perfect turkey for Thanksgiving and Chanukah 1 (18 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed 2 cups kosher salt 1/2 cup butter, melted 2 large onions, peeled and chopped 4 carrots, peeled and chopped 4 stalks celery, chopped 2 sprigs fresh thyme 1 bay leaf 1 cup dry white wine Check All Add to Shopping List Directions Rub the turkey inside and out with the kosher salt. Place the bird in a large stock pot, and cover with cold water. Place in the refrigerator, and allow the turkey to soak in the salt and water mixture 12 hours, or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Thoroughly rinse the turkey, and discard the brine mixture. Brush the turkey with 1/2 the melted butter. Place breast side down on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Stuff the turkey cavity with 1 onion, 1/2 the carrots, 1/2 the celery, 1 sprig of thyme, and the bay leaf. Scatter the remaining vegetables and thyme around the bottom of the roasting pan, and cover with the white wine. Roast uncovered 3 1/2 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until the internal temperature of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F (85 degrees C). Carefully turn the turkey breast side up about 2/3

through the roasting time, and brush with the remaining butter. Allow the bird to stand about 30 minutes before carving.

measuring cup or the saucepan of hot turkey broth.

MAKING GRAVY Step 1: Heat 4 cups of turkey broth, chicken broth or water--or a combination of broth and water--in a saucepan until hot but not boiling. Step 2: Transfer the cooked turkey from the roasting pan and set it on a cutting board to rest. Remove as much grease or fat as possible from the pan using a spoon, ladle or gravy separator. Reserve ¼ cup fat. Step 3: Place the roasting pan over two burners on the stove on medium heat. Deglaze the pan by adding ½ cup water or other liquid (wine, turkey, or chicken stock). Stir constantly and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen browned bits. Pour off the liquid from the roasting pan into a

Fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and spices from LOCAL farmers. The mission of the Brothers Farmers Market is to form a relationship with local growers/producers in order to provide fresh, seasonal produce and agricultural products for the community while fostering a sense of place in Broward County area of South Florida. They have more local foods than ever this year and continue to strive to bring you the best that Florida has to offer. Stop in and see the huge selection of organic foods. They follow all the strict requirements for organic certification, as defined by the USDA.

For over 80 years, the Orthodox Union has set the bar for the highest standards of kosher certification. At the Brothers Farmers Market, customers buy food directly from local farmers – that is as fresh, tasty and nutritious as it gets.

Step 4: Add ¼ cup reserved fat to roasting pan over medium heat. Whisk in ¼ cup all-purpose flour. Cook gently, stirring constantly, until the flour loses its “raw” smell and the mixture becomes golden in color. Cooking the flour enhances the thickening power of the roux and adds color and nutty flavor to the gravy. Step 5: Then transfer the roux to a saucepan. Whisk in the hot turkey broth and pan drippings and simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until thickened. Step 6: Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warmed gravy boat or serving bowl and garnish with fresh chopped sage. Other herbs and spices may suit your tastes as well.
