Graffiti Buster Partner with Police to Fight the Blight

The Prime Time girls with Coach Jeff Fogel By Marylynne Newmark sfsuntimes@aol.com

It all began as the brainchild of a 6th grader, Ahava Greenbaum, who thought ‘out of the box’ in creating her Bat Mitzvah project to include a community service effort for her school, Hochberg Prep-

Beth Torah. Ahava is a key player on the 5th6th grade girls’ Prime Time Basketball Team. With the encouragement of her mother, Susanne Reiter, and her basketball coach at the MAR-JCC, Jeff Fogel, they developed a “Points 4 Love” cam-

paign that involves Ahava’s love of basketball and interest in working with special needs individuals. The concept behind “Points 4 Love” is for Ahava and her Prime Time Team to commit

AVENTURA Vertical Life In Luxury, But With Concerns By Frank Fernandez, Chief of Police City of Hollywood From the smallest village to the largest city, all around the world municipalities and private property owners are battling an enemy that is difficult to apprehend and whose impact is immense. The United States spends more than $25 billion annually in graffiti eradication efforts. The figure skyrockets if you include individual property owner expenses. The City of Hollywood is taking a stand to fight the blight! The Hollywood Police Department’s Code Enforcement Unit has hired a dedicated full-time staff member whose sole responsibility is to assist in the eradication of graffiti throughout the city. The Graffiti Buster heads from location to location to touch-up areas where graffiti has been reported. While removal of graffiti on private property is the responsibility of the property owner, the Graffiti Buster will assist in touching-up small areas with light colored paint to ensure quick removal. Prompt removal is the key to discouraging additional graffiti. Typically, taggers write on what they can reach. To discourage graffiti consider planting landscaping in

front of fencing, walls or other empty spans that could be used as a “blank canvas”. Landscaping not only beautifies an area but also assists by pushing taggers away from the canvas thereby reducing graffiti. Security cameras are also an effective deterrent and may aid in apprehensions. Realtors estimate that the purchase price for a home decreases by 20% in areas victimized by graffiti vandalism, which decreases the perception of safety. Graffiti also gives the perception of an economically depressed area with low community values that can discourage tourism and economic health. We need your help to keep Hollywood pretty and welcoming. If you see someone acting suspiciously, carrying spray paint, paint cans, other paint related items or step ladders in areas that seem out of place, call the Police nonemergency number at 954-967-4357. Report graffiti for eradication as soon as it appears by entering the address into Help Me Hollywood. The Help Me Hollywood application can be found at www.hollywoodfl.org or in the App store on your mobile device. You can also call Code Enforcement at 954-967-3061.

Being a city of mega-story glassencased high rise buildings sitting on the Atlantic shoreline, is fabulous. However, excitement and envy of life in this City of Excellence with its skyscraping condos, vulnerable to tropical storms and hurricanes, tapers a little at this time of the year. The City of Aventura is designated as an evacuation zone for any Storm Category 2 or higher. That means that NOAA recommends evacuation. Although the decision to evacuate is

strictly personal, since most residents feel safe with storm grade windows and hurricane shutters, Aventura City Management also warns that remaining at home in your condo in the event of a pending Category 2 or higher hurricane is risky and dangerous. The City instructs that wind force increases greatly with height and storm surge triggers power failure, large debris buildup and blocked stairwells. Flooding can keep residents trapped

Gulfstream Middle Schools new principal The goal is to have a highly collaborative process to ensure a smooth transition By Mayor Joy Cooper What do Hallandale Beach parents, teachers and other stakeholders want to see in Gulfstream Middle Schools new principal? This was the question asked at a recent community meeting that was held on Tuesday night, May 27th. School board staff David Hall facilitated the meeting and started by informing the attendees about the process. The goal is to have a highly collaborative process to ensure a smooth transition. Hallandale Beach Middle School was closed many years ago. Students in Hallandale Beach attended school outside of city limits. Once on the commission, I worked with the board along with my colleagues to re-open our Middle School. That goal was reached in 2006. Currently there are 400 students enrolled. I served on the selection committee that made a recommendation for the first Gulfstream Principal. In that process, a group of 15 reviewed applications, conducted interviews and the ranked the top three choices. The final decision is made by the school district. At that time they appointed a principal that was not the top choice for Gulfstream. The top choice was assigned to McNichol. I am hoping this is not a repeat. Mr. Hall briefed us that a similar process would also take place with the final decision up to the board. Mr. Hall also reviewed the Florida Principal Leadership Standards that are used as a guide for decision makers in the selection process. There are four domains in which a candidate is evaluated, Student Achievement, Instructional Leadership, Organizational Leadership and Professional and Ethical Behaviors.

During the meeting, attendees had a chance to comment on each domain and what they would like to see. Under Student Achievement, the main themes were the inclusion and sensitivity to the demographic needs in the city, flexibility with each child’s learning styles and needs, ESOL programs and continued focus on STEM. On Instructional Leadership, many wanted to make sure that teachers were allowed to utilize creativity and new methods of teaching the children to fit their learning styles. The new principals need to listen to the teachers and provide them with the tools they need to succeed. They want someone that plans to stay at Gulfstream and not make it a stepping stone. There is a need for continuity and communication on all levels. The principal also needs to work with all stakeholders to build capacity. Organizational Leadership was important when it came to communication and resources. The new principal needs to be in touch with the community as a whole. They need to understand the limitations of the school facility and know how to leverage partnerships to expand opportunity. She/he would need to be focused on school safety and child’s wellbeing by working with the city and other principals. I had to leave the meeting before the discussion took place about ethics and professionalism. These two items come down in my book as either you have them or you do not. Early on in the discussion, there were comments about fairness and accessibility. As this process continues, I will keep our readers updated. I left the Gulfstream meeting to

attend Hallandale Beach’s Annual Hurricane Forum. As always, the Fire Department did an excellent job putting together an excellent informative program. There were various booths provided by service providers and agencies. There were many residents that have attended the forum before that have experienced hurricanes and were there to brush up on preparations. There were some residents that had never been to the forum and others that have never experienced and wanted to learn as much as possible. One fact that I had not heard before, was the year Hurricane Andrew hit in 92’, the season was predicted to be a slow season with only six named storms. There were only four and Andrew, a CAT 5 was one of them. So just remember it only takes one big storm or one big storm surge to make it a bad season. Alex Gibbs from NOAH stressed that we should not be lulled to think it will be an easy season. They have predicted by the numbers, a year with another slow season. He also reminded us that it has been 8 years since a major hurricane has hit South Florida. The best way to get real time information on predictions and weather alerts is to visit www.weather.gov/ maps. Once a storm is declared a hurricane, every resident that lives east of the Intracoastal water way and persons living in prefabricated homes must evacuate. Once a storm moves to a Category 3, everyone east of US 1 must evacuate. Remember, once you are locked down in your apartment you are on your own. First responders are off the road too. With major damage or

flood they may not be able to get to you. Chuck Lanzo briefed everyone on preparation and shelters. Anyone needing assistance due to special needs should pre-register for the special needs shelter. This can be done on-line by simply calling 311. He suggested visiting: www.Broward.org for preparation tips. The county is no longer mailing out booklets, it is all online. If you do not have internet access, call 311 and they will put you in contact with the right person or agency. The other big issue is insurance. Steven Reimer of Reimer Insurance gave a presentation on what you need to do. He calls it an insurance “checkup”. He told everyone to speak with their agents to make sure all your insurance needs are covered. Flood and hurricane are a must. There is also supplement insurances that are available for added flood and business losses. Mr. Reimer also reminded condo dwellers that you can purchase Loss Assessment Insurance. This insurance covers individual condo owners by providing insurance to pay for additional assessment levied by condos in the event they need to pay deductibles to the buildings insurance. June 1st is the official beginning of the season, just remember to have a plan and be prepared. Our Fire Department is always available to help guide you and answer all of your questions.

As always feel free to reach out to me with your questions, concerns and ideas to make our city a better place, my office number at: (954) 457-1318, my cell/text: (954) 632-5700.

The 2013 Miami Heat Wheels Paralympic basketball team

JCC

From Page 1A

volunteer hours to a charity of the Miami Heat Choice. That’s when they discovered online the Miami Heat Wheels Paralympic basketball team, whose players all are victims of gunshot, or car acci-

dents. Ahava and her mom watched them play with enthusiasm and wanted to include them in the project. After contacting coach Parnes Cartwright of Miami Heat Wheels, they were informed that a documentary film on these players entitled, “The Rebound”, had been created by cinematographers, Shaina Koren and Mike Esposito, to be released

soon. (http://www.miamiheat.com or http:// www.therebound.com) As the concept developed and the venue of the Michael Ann Russell Jewish Community Center (MAR-JCC) in North Miami Beach was secured, Hellen Jena of the JCC coordinated an effort with the Special Olympics Florida-Miami Dade County to add a Swim Competition to the event. As the “Points 4 Love” project grew, so did the name, now called, “Wheels and Waves”, and everyone involved hope to make this an annual event. Prior to the development of the “Points 4 Love” campaign, Ahava had already been scouted by a few basketball teams for her action on the court. In less than 1 year, under the USSSA League, the Prime Time girls’ sports team became #1 in Florida and #3 in the USA in the 5th-6th grade division. They also placed first last month in the Palm Beach County tournaments. The MAR-JCC Prime Time Sports Committee surprised Ahava recently for her talent on the court and her drive to help others by awarding her with the Marc Sutton Sports Scholarship for young promising athletes to receive training in pursuit of their sports dreams. The Marc Sutton Fund was set up by the Sutton family when Marc, who loved sports, suddenly and tragically passed away at the age of 9. “The Marc Sutton Fund was especially meaningful to us,” says Susanne Reiter, “since Marc was my preschool student and Ahava’s pre-school friend”. As a result of the vision of this young girl and her mother in making a difference in the world, Jeremie “Phenom” Thomas (one of the Miami Heat Wheels basketball players), was inspired to write a song with Ahava’s mother, entitled, “Points 4 Love - Stand 4 Love”, which was produced as a music video and will be released this weekend at the event. The video features “Phenom” and an amazing 7-year-old cancer survivor named Miriam Goldsmith, who is currently making “phenomenal” efforts of her own to walk again. The Miami Heat Wheels will play against the Ft. Lauderdale Sharks and the Sunrise Stars in a tournament, showcasing their amazing basketball talents playing wheelchair basketball. The Wheels and Waves event at the MAR-JCC on Sunday June 1st from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, will feature a line of spinners from “I-Fit” outside the gym space leading into the indoor gym tournament event. There will be bounce houses, food concession stands, raffles and contests throughout the day and Shoot a Half-Court Shot with a chance to win $25,000. Swimmer awards will be presented between 9 AM and 2:00 PM in the Aquatic Center. Basketball Tournament awards will be presented around 3:30 PM in the gym by philanthropist, Bob Shelly, a candidate for Commissioner of City of Aventura as well as a celebrity guest (TBA).

in their buildings for many days without help. Hurricane Planning a Priority This Month Therefore, the City of Aventura recommends early planning and evacuation when a Hurricane Watch is announced. The City suggests that preplanning for a visit with family or friends inland or out of the area is best, keeping in mind that early travel will avoid last-minute stand-still traffic jams. Hotel or motel reservations definitely should be made early to assure space, and there are designated shelters that are basically a space on the floor to which residents need to bring all of their own personal and comfort supplies. For residents opting to evacuate to these shelters, the Aventura Express will run emergency schedules to bring riders to Aventura Plaza or the Promenade Shoppes where they will board County buses that will transport passengers to local shelters. Riders must be able to take all of their belongings, including pillows, blankets, personal items, etc., with them at each point. Bus service will be discontinued when wind speed reaches 35 mph. Best choice for Aventura residents is to evacuate out of the area early. Aventura Continues As a City of Excellence Aside from the magnificence of the architecture and comfortable lifestyle of its residents, the City of Aventura wants to make it better. In 2009, City Commissoners passed an ordinance to promote a “GoGreen’ program for all new construction with standards measured against the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System. New standards were set for design and ecological sensitivity. The City itself maintains green standards by recycling, replacing lighting with energy efficient bulbs, employing new technologies for air conditioning and water energy, use of native landscaping and natural light, solar panels and makes every effort to reduce invasive plant growth to protect natural wildlife. Many condos participate in the GoGreen Campaign, with twenty buildings receiving GoGreen Recognition Awards for their diligent efforts in reducing their buildings’ footprints on the environment. Another green project that the City is very proud of is the Aventura Community Green Garden, a patch of 4’ x 12’ planters in Founders Park that allows ACGG members, residents who are 14 years or older, to grow vegetables, flowers, herbs and other plants in their own top-soil enriched enclosed garden. “Members actually lease the planter for a year,” says City manager Eric Soroka, “and it gives them, especially high rise residents, the opportunity to grow their own garden in the middle of the city,” Soroka says that the project began with twelve planters, and the number is about to be increased due to high demand.

City parks in Aventura are very family friendly, with activities for all ages. Founders Park has a Splash Pad extraordinaire with youngsters dodging waters and having fun. The City just approved expansion of the area by adding a SunPad adjacent to it, which actually will be a shaded area for parents to relax and enjoy the ambiance while supervising their youngsters. The 3.1 mile Don Soffer Trail that encircles the entire Country Club Drive perimeter is active day and night with walkers, runners, baby carriages and pets. There is a Dog Park in The Waterways, and within the city, there is Veterans Park and the Arthur L. Snyder Park. Lots of activity is available at all times for all of Aventura’s 37,000 residents. Recreational programs in the parks include four different summer camps for residents: A Discovery Camp for 5-8 yr olds, an Explorer Camp for ages 8-14, a Travel Camp for ages 914, and a Sports Camp for ages 7-14. Aside from that, future thesbians can benefit from the skills and discipline they will learn at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center Summer Theatre Camp. Yearlog activities in the parks include Little league, tennis and flag football, The parks and community facilities are also the venue for many events, such as Arbor Day, 4th of July fireworks, Senior Prom, Founders Day, movie nights, and celebrations for Halloween Harvest and Veterans Day. Education is a Priority ACES (Aventura City of Excellence School) is the first municipally-run charter school in MiamiDade County, with nearly 1,000 students K-8. ACES is the 4th highest performing school in the State of Florida, as measured by the FCAT. ACES students outperformed all area high schools in algebra, geometry and biology, as measured by end-of-course exams.Technology is a priority; the school has an iPad lab for all grades and subjects. In addition, the Middle School Boys’ Flag Football team won the International Athetic League Conference Championship this past year Culture Runs a Close Second The Aventura Arts & Cultural Center, now in its 4th season, features local and international plays and performances. Managed by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Aventura Center presents approximately 140 performances a year. Recent celebrity performances included Mandy Patankin and Pattie LuPone. June Schedule at Aventura Arts & Culture Center 6/4 Voice of a Poet, Bles Chavez-Bernstein • 6/5 2nd Baila Flamenco Festival • 6/19 “The Ugly Duckling”, Kirova Ballet Academy • 6/24 Flamingo Festival: Classical Music of New Millenium • 6/27-7/22 Summer Theatre Camp Performances The city also sponsors a Cultural Arts Theatre and Leisure program that includes trips to museums, Broadway shows touring locally, film pro-

ductions and music and dance performances. Efficiency through Privatization There are several reasons why the City of Aventura can provide such great services for its community. “Our City is run very efficiently,” says Eric Soroka, City Manager. “We have used privatized services since we incorporated in 1995, allowing us excellent control of budget at all times.” Privatized services in Aventura include building inspection, park maintenance, right-ofway maintenance, street maintenance, all recreational programs, as well as private contracts with the City Engineer and the City Attorney. “As a result of this and with our great number of luxury high rise condos,’ he adds, ‘Aventura is very fortunate to have the lowest millage rate in MiamiDade County.” Traffic Solutions With new construction increasing population and vehicles, the limited streets that egress from coastal sections like Williams Island is becoming a choking situation for some residents. “It takes me 20 minutes to just get through Williams Island Blvd,” says a resident at Tower IV, who chooses to remain nameless. Even Biscayne Boulevard from 163rd St to 208th St. is slow at best, especially in the late afternoon. The City sets traffic improvement as a priority issue for 2014-15. “We are currently working with the County,” says Soroka, “to add more time to the traffic lights going east to west to ease this situation, and are looking into more positive solutions.” Travel within the community is easier. The Aventura Express Shuttle Bus runs 6 days a week, transporting 26,000 residents who opt not to use their cars. The Aventura Express shuttle has five different color-coded routes that extend from The Point at the northeast corner of NE 208 St.reet on the Bay to Biscayne Boulevard and Aventura Hospital and The Waterways, and separate routes that go south to Aventura Plaza and Williams Island or to Mystic Pointe. All routes circle the Country Club Drive perimeter for passenger pickup. e-Government Online Services Information and forms are only a fingertip away for residents in Aventura. Registration for all activities can be completed online, as well as e-permits to check building permit status and inspection requests. Public records are available. Forms can be downloaded from Document Central. The website MyAventura is updated for notification about the city’s latest news, and and the City produces a quarterly Aventura Update for additional communication. FAQs (Frequently Asked Qustions) is very informative. Theatregoers also can purchase tickets for events at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center. The Aventura Mission Statement says it all, to join with the community to make Aventura a city of the highest quality and a City of Excellence. A deed well done.

Cynthia and Lisa Hibbits were always very close, with a strong psychic bond, according to their brother Kenneth Hibbits. “We were so amazed when they died so close to each other in separate cities. It’s almost paranormal,” he continued, “but also beautiful.” Another coincidence is that their cause of death was the same... breast cancer, which they both had been battling for years, but each was more concerned and supportive of the other. They died within a 6 hour period, neither knowing of her sister’s pending death. The sisters were born in Hollywood, grew up in Hallandale and worked close to home. Cynthia, 54, was very prominent as Executive Director of the Hallandale Chamber of Commerce, an affiliation she had for over twenty years. “Cynthia Hibbits was a real advocate for business,” said former Chamber President Susan Mandel. “She was all about businesses succeeding, and was sensitive to the changing demographics of Hallandale Beach.” Mandel noted that Cynthia persuaded the city commissioners to allow for more signage for new businesses, and pushed heavily for hiring a marketing firm to help maximize economic development for Hallandale. “Cynthia was the kindest, most sincere and incredibly helpful person I ever met,” says Dana

Klein, president of DKMC PR and Marketing, a member of the Hallandale Beach Chamber Board of Directors. “She truly was a diamond in the rough.” Cynthia, so well liked locally, relocated to Sebastian with her long-time partner, Anthony Girardi, shortly after her diagnosis. She passed away in ICU there on May 21. Lisa, 59, married to Joseph Simmons, had worked for Qualex, formerly a nationwide photoprocessing company, but retired with her declining health. She passed away in ICU at Memorial West in Cynthia Hibbits Pembroke Pines in supported each other throughout the early morning hours of May 22. “We spent our summers on their illnesses,” he concluded, “and Sanibel Island or in Eastern seemingly followed each other to Kentucky while growing up,” said eternity.” A memoriam in honor of both Kenneth Hibbits. “Cynthia and Lisa were always together on the beach sisters will be held Saturday, June or walking through the mountains 7 at Fred Hunter Funeral Home, behind our grandmother’s house. 2401 S.

(BPT) - One hundred years ago, the average American’s life expectancy was between 50 and 60 years, and so the estimated 53,000 centenarians in the United States today have lived much longer than most of their contemporaries. Perhaps that is why a new survey shows that these 100-year-olds feel “blessed” (36 percent), “happy” (31 percent) and “surprised” (12 percent) to have lived so long. Not one reports feeling sad or burdened; only 3 percent say they feel lonely. For the past nine years, UnitedHealthcare has conducted a survey of 100 100year-olds to gain insight into their lives. For its most recent 100@100 survey, the company also polled 65-year-old baby boomers to examine how the attitudes and lifestyles of people entering their retirement years compare to those who hit that same age 35 years ago. According to the study, one thing both groups agreed on is that they feel younger than their years. On average, the centenarians surveyed said they feel just 83 years old, while 65year-old baby boomers said they feel 55 years old. “It’s encouraging that older Americans feel more youthful than the number of candles on their birthday cake might suggest,” said Rhonda Randall, D.O., chief medical officer of UnitedHealthcare Retiree Solutions. UnitedHealthcare serves more than a quarter of America’s centenarians through its Medicare plans. “By looking at how they are living their daily lives, we can glean important insights about the keys to staying healthy and feeling vibrant as we age.” The following are some of the secrets to healthy aging, as

revealed by the 100@100 survey. Secret 1: Keep up with exercise. Despite their age, centenarians stay active: more than half walk or hike and nearly a third do strengthtraining exercises. Some even run outdoors or play team sports every week (4 percent). Exercise is an important part of boomers’ lifestyle as well. Nearly 3 in 4 walk or hike each week, 37 percent do strengthtraining exercises and 13 percent run outdoors or play team sports. Secret 2: Get preventive care to stay healthy. Older Americans are taking the saying “an ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure” toheart by keeping up with preventive health care services to stay well. Nearly 9 in 10 get an annual exam (87 percent of centenarians and 89 percent of baby boomers) with their primary care physician, and the majority also report

getting eye exams regularly (71 percent of centenarians and 76 percent of baby boomers). Secret 3: Maintain a positive attitude. Both centenarians and baby boomers say maintaining their physical health and a positive attitude are equally important to successful aging (66 percent and 81 percent, respectively). In fact, 82 percent of centenarians say laughing/having a sense of humor is important to healthy aging. Perhaps the most important lesson revealed in the 100@100 survey findings is that living a long, healthy life is about more than just genetics. Daily habits and lifestyle choices can make a difference not only in how long people live but also in how they feel as they age.

WELL-HEELED: Tips for picking high heels that are better for your feet (BPT) - Few relationships in a woman’s life are as lovehate as the one she has with her high heels. We love them because they look great and make legs appear longer and leaner, helping petite women appear taller and tall women statuesque. The hate, however, comes when the pain begins. High heels are the No. 1 culprit of foot pain for women, according to an American Podiatric Medical Association survey. Nearly half of all women wear heels, and 71 percent of heelwearers say those shoes hurt their feet, the APMA reports. “With many types of heels, like very high stilettos, foot pain is hard to avoid,” says Dr. Matthew G. Garoufalis, a podiatrist and immediate past president of the APMA. “But it is possible for women to find a happy mid-point

between great looks and great pain.” The APMA offers some basic guidelines for choosing better-for-you heels: • Nearly half of heelowners admit to wearing heels 3 inches or higher. That height, however, shifts body weight forward and puts great pressure on the ball of the foot and the toes. Avoid heels higher than 2 inches. • A high stiletto with a pointy, closed toe is the worst type of shoe for your feet. Instead, choose heels with a generous toe box area and extra cushioning at the front of the shoe. A slight heel or wedge encourages your arch to lift. • Consider wearing supportive shoes during your commute and changing into high heels after you arrive at the office. This will help mini-

mize the time your feet spend in heels. • Kitten heels are a goodlooking, foot-friendly option for heel wearers. With a heel height typically less than 1 inch, kitten heels deliver a bit of height without the pressure that higher heels can cause. • Be extra careful when wearing platforms or wedges, as these styles can compromise your balance and stability. Very high shoes may lead to ankle rolls and falls. Choose lower platforms and wedges that secure with ankle straps.

• During warm weather, peep toes tempt women to show off pretty pedicures. Be aware, however, that peep toes can cause toes to slip forward or overlap, and may even push nail edges into skin, causing an ingrown toenail. • Visit the APMA’s website, www.apma.org, to review a list of podiatristapproved women’s footwear that has earned the organization’s Seal of Acceptance. • If you experience persistent foot pain, see a podiatrist. Feet shouldn’t hurt all the time, and if they do it may

indicate injury, irritation or illness. You can search for a podiatrist in your area by visiting the APMA website. Finally, even if you’re like the average American woman and own nine pairs of high heels, don’t wear them every day. Daily heel-wearing can cause the Achilles tendon (the strong tendon at the back of your ankle) to shrink, increasing your risk of an injury while doing activities in flat shoes, including exercise. “Treat heels like dessert,” Garoufalis says. “Don’t wear them all the time, just on special occasions.”

Giving back to the everyday heroes who inspire you (BPT) - When you think of public servants or people who do heroic jobs, do you picture police officers, firefighters and soldiers? While all those people selflessly serve the public, they’re not the only everyday heroes whose jobs contribute to the greater good. The field of public service is broad, encompassing teachers, health care workers, law enforcement professionals and social workers. Demand is high for caring, trained professionals to fill a growing number of jobs in public service fields. In fact, job opportunities are expected to grow 22 percent for social and human service assistants, 7 percent for firefighters, 6 percent for high school teachers and 5 percent for police officers and detectives, across the nation by 2022 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some of the professionals to fill those jobs will come directly from colleges like Kaplan University, where first-time students will pursue coursework designed to specifically prepare them for public service careers. Others will be career changers, like Arthur Chapel and Melissa

Bowermaster, who entered public service after enduring personal challenges and were inspired by the caring help of other public servants. “I was in a bad place, and someone helped me,” says Arthur Chapel, who successfully completed substance-abuse treatment and then decided to change careers to become a counselor. “Now I give back by helping others who need it. I have the satisfying career I always wanted and I get up every day eager to go to work because I know I’m helping people who need it.” “Working in law enforcement, I saw every day the caring of the human services people I came into contact with,” says Melissa Bowermaster, executive director of Citrus County Child Advocacy Center in Florida. Her interaction with these professionals, especially those who worked with children, inspired her to return to school to pursue a human services degree. After graduating from Kaplan University with a bachelor’s degree of science in human services, Bowermaster went to work advocating for children in need in Citrus

County. Chapel and Bowermaster aren’t alone in finding inspiration from the everyday heroism of public servants. Each day, these professionals have a positive effect on thousands of people across the country. In honor of Public Service Recognition Week, May 4 to 10, Kaplan University is inviting the public to salute the everyday heroes in their lives. Post a photo and story of your everyday hero police officer, firefighter, EMS, early childhood teacher, social worker or other - using the tag #PublicServiceStars through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Google+, and then register at the #PublicServiceStars Wall of Heroes. As a thanks for submitting your story, you’ll have the chance to make a difference in the lives of others. Kaplan University will make a $500 donation to the favorite charitable cause of one lucky participant. To learn more about public service career opportunities, visit www.kaplanuniversity.edu or the Center for Public Service website.

Treating your Type 2 diabetes? Don’t overlook cholesterol management

First Prescription Medicine Certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union Available for Treatment of Rare Disease (BPT) - The word “kosher” is typically associated with food products. However, Pfizer Inc. has taken the next step to include prescription medicine by certifying their product, ELELYSO™ (taliglucerase alfa) kosher for injection. ELELYSO an enzyme replacement therapy for adults with Type 1 Gaucher disease. The Orthodox Union (OU), the world’s most recognized and trusted kosher certification body, certified ELELYSO, as part of their efforts to support the interests of the global Jewish community. Gaucher disease is an inherited lysosomal storage disorder, which can cause severe and debilitating symptoms and affects an estimated 10,000 patients worldwide. Type 1 Gaucher disease, which is the most common type,1 is seen in higher numbers in people of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage. In fact, Type 1 Gaucher disease is present in approximately 1 in 600 people of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry, and approximately 1 in 14 Ashkenazi Jews is a carrier. Gaucher disease occurs when there is an abnormal gene, causing low levels of a particular enzyme to be produced. This enzyme is responsible for breaking down fatty substances, or lipids, from cells. A lack of this enzyme will cause the cells to become enlarged, called Gaucher cells. Gaucher cells commonly affect the spleen, liver and bone marrow. “Rare diseases, like Gaucher disease, can have a significant impact on both patients and their families. This certification reflects Pfizer’s commitment to all patients suffering from Type 1 Gaucher disease,” said Rory O’Connor, Senior Vice President, Head of Global Medical Affairs, Innovative Pharma Business. “We appreciate the Orthodox Union working extensively with our partners at Protalix to confirm that the ingredients and manufacturing process for ELELYSO pass strict kosher regulations.” ELELYSO is the first prescription medication to be awarded a kosher certification by the Orthodox Union, and is made in Israel with innovative technology using carrot cells to grow the inefficient enzyme. ELELYSO was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in May 2012 as treatment option for adults with Type 1 Gaucher disease. For more information, visit www.ELELYSO.com. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/ medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

(BPT) - For the millions of Americans living with Type 2 diabetes, a combination of diet, exercise and medication can help them control the condition. But even those who are doing everything right to manage their diabetes may be at higher risk of developing heart disease and stroke - if they fail to also treat their high “bad” cholesterol. “It is estimated that more than half of adults with diabetes also have high cholesterol, which makes it imperative to treat both conditions, side-by-side,” says Dr. Sergio Rovner, an assistant professor at the Family Practice Department at Texas Tech Health Science Center and an endocrinologist in private practice at the Academy of Diabetes, Thyroid and Endocrine in El Paso, Texas. The diabetes and high “bad” cholesterol connection Type 2 diabetes and high “bad” cholesterol are closely connected. Having Type 2 diabetes can cause the body to be more susceptible to developing high “bad” cholesterol. And, vice versa. Having high “bad’ cholesterol levels also increases the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. The most common form of diabetes, Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is a chronic disease characterized by high glucose levels that occur because the body does not properly use insulin that is made, and over time some people with Type 2 diabetes may lose the ability to make insulin. Type 2 diabetes is usually associated with older age, obesity, a history (either gestational or family history) of diabetes, sedentary lifestyle and ethnicity. Some ethnic groups such as Asian-Americans, AfricanAmericans and Hispanics are at higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. In fact, 12 percent of Hispanics older than 20 have diabetes, as compared to eight percent of the general population, the CDC reports. And, this number is expected to increase by nearly 130 percent within the next 30 years. Factors that put Hispanics at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes include differences in genetic makeup, social and cultural factors, and access to quality health care. Cholesterol, a waxy fat-like substance, is necessary for normal body function, but when too much of a certain kind - LDL or “bad” cholesterol - builds up, it can block arteries and contribute to heart disease and stroke. Many of the lifestyle changes that can help treat Type 2 diabetes - increased physical activity, diet control - also are good for your cholesterol. If you are affected with both Type 2 diabetes and high “bad” cholesterol, it’s important to treat these conditions in tandem. Treating in tandem While eating healthier and exercising more are initial ways to treat both Type 2 diabetes and high “bad” cholesterol, medication is often needed. One medication that people may want to ask their doctor about is Welchol® (colesevelam hydrochloride) because it is the only FDA-approved prescription medication with one active ingredient that lowers both A1C levels and “bad” cholesterol levels in adults. The most common side effects seen in patients taking Welchol were constipation, indigestion and nausea. Welchol has not been shown to prevent heart disease or heart attacks. If you have Type 2 diabetes, be sure to talk to your doctor about cholesterol control and managing your diabetes. Your

Type 2 diabetes and high “bad” cholesterol are closely connected. If you suffer from both conditions, it’s important to treat both in tandem. doctor can advise you on what treatment is best for you. To learn more about diabetes and cholesterol, visit www.diabetes.org. To learn more about Welchol, visit www.welchol.com or speak to your doctor. What is Welchol (colesevelam HCl)? Welchol, along with diet and exercise, lowers LDL or “bad” cholesterol. It can be taken alone or with other cholesterollowering medications known as statins. Welchol lowers LDL cholesterol in boys, and in girls who have had a menstrual period, ages 10 to 17 years, with a condition known as heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (a genetic disorder that causes high cholesterol) alone or with other cholesterol-lowering medications known as statins after inadequate control with diet alone. Welchol, along with diet and exercise, also lowers blood sugar levels in adult patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus when added to other antidiabetes medications (metformin, sulfonylureas, or insulin). Welchol should not be used to treat Type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. Welchol has not been studied with all anti-diabetes medications. Welchol has not been studied in children younger than 10 years old or in girls who have not had a menstrual period. Important Safety Information About Welchol (colesevelam HCl) Welchol is available by prescription only. Ask your HCP if Welchol is right for you. Welchol is not for everyone, especially those with: A history of intestinal blockage, blood triglyceride levels of greater than 500 mg/dL, or a history of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) due to high triglyceride levels. Welchol has not been shown to prevent heart disease or heart attacks. Tell your health care provider (HCP) if you have high triglycerides (greater than 300 mg/dL). Tell your HCP if you have stomach or intestinal problems, including gastroparesis (when the stomach takes too long to empty its contents), abnormal contractions of the digestive system, a history of major gastrointestinal tract surgery, if you have trouble swallowing, or if you have vitamin A, D, E, or K deficiencies. Welchol has known interactions with cyclosporine, glimepiride, glipizide, glyburide, levothyroxine, certain birth control pills, olmesartan medoxomil, and metformin extended release

(ER). Welchol has not been studied with all combinations of drugs and supplements. Please tell your HCP about all medications and supplements you may be taking before beginning Welchol, as your HCP may tell you to take your other medications and supplements 4 hours before taking Welchol. Remember to tell your HCP if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Welchol (colesevelam HCl) for Oral Suspension should not be taken in its dry form. Welchol for Oral Suspension is recommended for, but not limited to, use in appropriate pediatric patients as well as any patient who has difficulty swallowing.

Local Servicemen And Servicewomen Honored Annual Hallandale Beach Hurricane Forum More than 100 Hallandale Beach residents turned out to place flags at the graves of former servicemen and servicewomen entombed in the Hallandale Beach Cemetery, and participate in the annual Memorial Day ceremonies at Foster Park. Little Marley Williams, 5, joins her grandmother, Robyn Gonzales, in placing a flag at the gravesite of Marley’s great-great uncle, former U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine John

Mozie. Marley and her grandmother also placed flags for her great-great grandfather, Abraham Mozie, who served in the U.S. Navy. The Mozie brothers served during Viet Nam. For many younger Hallandale Beach residents, it was a time to learn about the sacrifices their relatives made to protect the nation. (Photo courtesy City of Hallandale Beach Public Relations)

Hallandale Beach residents gathered Tuesday night to learn valuable tips from the experts at the annual Hallandale Beach Hurricane Forum at the Cultural Community Center. Residents were briefed on how to prepare for a storm, what they need and what they should take in the event of an evacuation. Experts met one-on-one with residents and offered advice. Getting together at the Hurricane Forum are, from left, Chuck Lanza, former Broward County Director of Emergency Management, Hallandale Beach residents Tom Bassman and Deann Patterson, and Hallandale Beach Deputy Fire Chief Gregg Pagliarulo. The City brought together emergency planners, Florida Power and Light, a NOAA hurricane specialist, insurance agents and a legal team to help residents prepare and to field questions.

TELEPHONE TOWN HALL Hallandale Beach will use technology at 6 p.m. tonight to get residents involved in shaping the Fiscal Year 2015 budget in a special Telephone Town Hall Meeting. About 10,000 City residents will be contacted by telephone at 6 p.m. tonight and invited to participate by phone and online in the Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Awareness Town Hall meeting. In the City’s ongoing effort to use technology to make it easier for residents to participate in government, the City is taking the budget meeting into your homes. City Manager Renee Miller will present a PowerPoint presentation online explaining revenue projections and budget expenses. The City Manager and her staff will gather at City Hall to read your online comments and answer your questions. In March, the City Manager held three Budget Awareness Town Hall Meetings, one each at Foster Park, Ingalls Park and in the Hemispheres Condominium community room. The City Manager explained the City Commission’s strategic priorities and asked residents identify the top three they want addressed in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget. The City Commission has nine strategic priorities including: • Local Jobs; • Civil and Respectful Government; • Quality Economic Development • Increasing Hallandale Beach’s Image as a Vibrant Destination; • Functional and Affordable Infrastructure; • Improving Operational Excellence; • Safety, Security and Comfort; • Quality of Life and Services; and • Cohesive Visual Appeal At the March forums, participating residents chose their top three priorities; Safety, Security and Comfort, Quality of Life and Services, and Quality Economic Development. Are these your priorities? Tonight, residents participating in the Telephone Town Hall Meeting will have another opportunity to ask questions about the budget and its preparation. Also, the City Manager will discuss the proposed $58.5 million general obligation bond to complete the Citywide Parks Master Plan. The bond would be repaid over 30 years. The bond will be on the November 4, 2014 General Election. It’s your chance to be heard and shape the budget. The telephone Town Hall Meeting makes it easier for you to offer suggestions from the comfort of your home. There is no need to drive to a meeting and drive home after dark. To participate in the Telephone Town Hall meeting online, visit the City’s website at www.CoHB.org/TTHM.

Add a burst of flavor to summer meals with grapes (BPT) - With warm summer weather comes the desire to lighten family meals and impress guests with thoughtful fare for backyard entertaining. Call on the bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables for inspiration. For instance, simply adding a handful of grapes immediately adds taste, color, freshness and a healthy enhancement to any dish. All three colors of grapes - green, red and black - are easy to use, extremely versatile, and conveniently available. California grapes provide a juicy, refreshing texture that complements many popular and often strongly spiced flavor profiles, including Asian and Latin offerings. With just 90 calories per 3/4-cup serving, grapes add a crisp, no-guilt lift to summer meals. You can also feel good about adding them into many other dishes because they are a source of antioxidants and other polyphenols, which may contribute to heart health. Try these grape-enhanced summer recipes guaranteed to impress at your next summer gathering: Banh Mi-Style Flatbread with California Grapes • 1 (14-ounce) package prepared pizza dough • 1 tablespoon canola oil • 1 tablespoon minced garlic • 1 tablespoon lemongrass paste • 12 ounces chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce • 1/2 cup shredded carrots • Pinch of sugar • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (unseasoned) • 2 cups halved green seedless California grapes • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro • 1 jalapeno pepper, very thinly sliced (Remove seeds for less heat) Roll the pizza dough into a 10-by-14-inch oval on a lightly floured board. Transfer it to a baking sheet. Bake at 450 F for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium skillet, and stir in the garlic and lemongrass paste; cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken and soy sauce; stir-fry over medium-high heat until the chicken is cooked through. Place the carrots in a small bowl and stir in a pinch of sugar and the vinegar. Spread the chicken mixture over the baked

dough then sprinkle it with the carrots, grapes, cilantro, and jalapeno slices. Cut the flatbread into 8 square pieces. Serves 4. Nutritional information per serving (2 slices):Calories 418; Protein 22 g; Carbohydrate 55 g; Fat 12 g (Sat. Fat 2g); 27 percent Calories from Fat; Cholesterol 44 mg; Sodium 357 mg; Potassium 508 mg; Fiber 2 g. Grilled Salmon Tacos with Grape Pico de Gallo • 1 cup red seedless California grapes, chopped • 1 cup green seedless California grapes, chopped • 1/4 cup finely chopped white onion • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced • Small pinch salt • 1 pound salmon fillets • As needed olive oil • To taste pepper • 12 small corn tortillas • 2 limes, cut into wedges Prepare a grill for cooking over medium heat. Put the grapes, onion, and jalapeno in a medium

bowl. Season with salt and toss lightly. Cover and chill while you prepare the salmon. Brush the salmon lightly with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until it’s cooked to your liking. Remove the salmon and keep it warm. Heat the tortillas briefly on the grill in batches until warmed. To serve, coarsely chop the salmon and divide it between the tortillas. Top each taco with a heaping tablespoon of grape pico de gallo and serve with lime wedges. Serves 4. Serving suggestion: Black beans or grilled veggies would both be great side dishes. Nutritional information per serving (3 tacos per serving): Calories 347; Protein 27 g; Carbohydrate 46 g; Fat 7 g (Sat. Fat 1g); 18 percent Calories from Fat; Cholesterol 59 mg; Sodium 298 mg; Potassium 611 mg; Fiber 5 g. Grapes from California are available May through January.
