TO THE RESCUE! Larry Blustein FORT LAUDERDALE - When it comes to our family pets, there is basically nothing we won't do to make sure they are cared for and have everything possible.

While we love our pets, and spend billions of dollars on foods and other products each year, there is a select group of individuals who have continued to take it one step further. Pet lovers, who have long rallied to help save those animals who are not as fortunate. Animals that could be put down at any time. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– BLUSTEIN, Page 9A

Those who work with - and run pet rescues - are truly unsung heroes

City of Hallandale Beach conducts budget workshops for all to take part in


Mayor Joy Cooper HALLANDALE BEACH - The City of Hallandale Beach conducted the budget workshops on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Last week a notice was sent and posted by the City Clerk from the City Manager to all the Commissioners and all subscribers to the city’s “notify me” system that our meeting would be conducted in room 257. Room 257 was set up as a meeting room with all the same technology as the City chambers. The meeting was televised live, webcast and recorded. The meeting, like all meetings, was public and accessible to all. The room was selected by the City Manager since it provides a more workable environment; not only for Staff, but for the Commissioners to spread out all working papers and Staff to be on hand to make presentations. The space makes it so we can easily work through dinner. It is a shame that the

minute the meeting was called to order there was an objection to the location after there was ample time last week to request that the meeting be moved back to chambers. Many cities have workshops that are not conducted in the formal setting of chambers. This is why the City Manager requested the change. Most importantly, it is not where the meeting is, but what the meeting is about. Our budget of 95 million dollars is predicated on utilizing 6,542,170 million in general reserves. The general fund budget was set at 57 million dollars. This was an increase over last year’s budget by 3.0 million dollars. The tax rate was lowered to a roll back rate of 5.6833. This resulted in a reduction of tax revenues of almost 760 thousand dollars. This will save the average homeowner 34 dollars. As I have written in the past, the City cannot continue to balance our budget through the reserve fund. We are still in recovery. We have, and will continue to do more with less. This budget actually adds to the level of service with the addition of the

new lifeguards and more staffing for the maintenance of our city’s roadways and landscaping. Even with using the reserve the fund we will still be at 15 million or 23%. Best practices recommend that reserve funds should be at a maximum 10% of the operating budget. The general fund budget went up also due to many capitol programs. We have approved a vehicle lease program, a fire fee increase to help pay for the new fire station , the development of a CNG fuel station, well field relocation, waste water upgrades and personnel cost that include 13.9 in pensions. The Commission is working with our unions to address long term costs. The Commission did change and added some fees to the fee booklet. The fire fee was recommended to increase to $20.00 per housing unit. The most significant change was an unanticipated sanitary sewer rate in-

crease to $3.48 per gallon up from $3.03 for first 2000 gallons and base increase to $17. This rate is set by Hollywood through a large user agreement. Staff is auditing their report to ensure that we are only paying our fair share. These costs are one reason Staff has been evaluating the option to treat a portion of our own waste water. There was an increase in deposits for water meters that I voted against. Staff was directed to evaluate returning deposits after a set period of time to users who pay their bills on time. Fire Safety permit fees were changed to 0.08 per square foot rather than a sliding fee based on the cost of construction. Parks fees were changed to provide more flexibility to users that only need daily or weekly hours rather than a flat rate. The pool and aquatics fees were added to the fee booklet. They were not increased. This pro-

vides our ability to collect them since they were handled previously through the contracted services. We approved the allocation of city grant funding and confirmed further changes to the City approval process and monitoring program. We added quarterly reporting to grants over 5,000. There was a strategic vote to place a referendum question on the January Ballot to issue 46 million dollars in GEO bonds. The bonds would be to purchase the post office, complete our park plans and build our Fire Station. It passed on a 4-1. I voted no. I did not want the Fire Station to be tied to a referendum. Public Safety is one of our critical services; it is a need…not a want. Last year we approved this project. We set aside 500,000 dollars of last year’s budget on a 4-1 vote. The project was requested for years, but due to the economic downturn it was put

off. It could not be put off any longer. We can move forward and take advantage of the new low bond rates recently negotiated and not risk the rates going up. The City Manager will be working with bond consul to see the best way to move forward. The Commission approved the creation of a RFL to develop a Public Private Partnership to build a Natural Gas fueling station. 1.5 million dollars was budgeted for this project, but it may not require capital contribution since we could use the land on Ansin Boulevard owned by the City. We want residents engaged in the process. If you cannot attend our meetings please watch on TV or on line. We had three residents attend on Monday and seven on Tuesday. You can still participate in the final public hearing to adopt the budget. There will be a first and second hearing to be held. As always, please feel free to contact me with your questions and concerns anytime at 954457-1318, or on my cell at 954-632-5700 or email me at www.mayor

JOY "Dee" CALANDRA, 62 Longtime area resident had a passion for life

Her church, family and friends were all part of what made Joy "Dee" Calandra special. Someone who touched so many lives in her 62 years on this earth. On Saturday, July 14, Calandra was taken from us after a courageous fight with Ovarian Cancer that lasted 11 long months. Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and Fondly looking back on her years with the Halprayers of family, landale Digest Newspaper, Joy "Dee" Calandra friends, and many sup(center) was one of those people you never porters carried her forget. Her smile was indeed contagious. through. Joy was brought up in the Hollywood/Hallandale Beach area, attending South Broward High School. Her many friends had gravitated toward her bubbly personality for many years, and those who called her a friend would often speak about her loyalty and dedication to anything she pursued in her lifetime. One of the top sales executives for the then Hallandale Digest Newspaper, Joy was part of an extended family that Publisher Peter Bluesten and his wife, Kate, had built in the region. Her client list was as impressive as you get, and her ability to make people smile was what she was all about. "The thing that makes Dee special," the late Peter Bluesten recalled, "was her personality and the way she made everyone feel." Her gift of being able to sell advertising in the Hallandale Digest as well as other publications had earned her a reputation as a tireless worker who always had an encouraging word to say about everyone. "Joy was indeed a very special person," said Sun Times President Craig Farquhar. "She always had something positive to say about everyone - and everything. Negative was never in her vocabulary." In addition to what she accomplished in her work life, the time that she spent in church, being around those who had the same passion for life, was what truly defined Joy Calandra. Joy is survived by her loving mother, Frances Aruta; sisters, Phyllis Byrne and Diana Aruta; daughters, Kristin Calandra and Dana Root; granddaughters, Rene and Mia Root and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.

Downtown Hollywood Arts Revival Program Debuts With ‘Lebo’ Mural HOLLYWOOD Downtown Hollywood will unveil acclaimed local artist “David Lebo” Le Batard s new jazz-inspired mural to launch the district s new curated outdoor mural program. Aptly dubbed the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project, the initiative is slated to kick-off at the district s monthly ArtWalk on Saturday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. where celebrated cartoon artist David Lebo Le Batard will unveil BeBop Into Outer Space. His inaugural, multi-dimensional mural spans 124 feet’ the first of several pieces by established, local contemporary artists designed for at least 10 properties. Inspired by geometric abstraction, color harmony and 1950s jazz, Lebo s

contribution to the emerging cityscape will add a visual arts component to Mayor Peter Bober s rapidly growing music initiative. Be-Bop Into Outer Space will enliven part of the historic Great Southern Building Complex (southwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Young Circle). The Downtown Hollywood Mural Project will be centralized in the Live Music District, running along Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street between 21st Avenue and Young Circle. Lebo is the perfect artist for this opportunity, said Jorge Camejo, Executive Director of the Hollywood CRA, the program s sponsor. He grew up and went to high school in Hollywood, and has

tremendous pride in his community. We couldn t be happier about having a local product succeed on the international stage, while finding time and inspiration to create a piece that is fitting in subject matter and that enhances its surroundings. The Hollywood CRA s mural program is designed to boost and encourage the Downtown Hollywood Live Music Initiative, launched earlier this year with the debut of the free yearround concert series ArtsPark Live!, and with new regulations that allow venues in delineated zones to obtain an extended-hours liquor license. Under the helm of CRA Executive Director Camejo, Commissioner Beam Furr and project manager Jill C.

Levitt-Weinstein Memorial Chapels & Cemeteries along with Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert have been involved in the South Florida community for over half a century. What distinguishes Levitt-Weinstein & Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert is that these South Florida institutions are still operated by the third generation of the original founding families.

Our goal at Beth David is to grow and expand to meet the needs of the community and families that we serve. As long as the needs of our families continue, we will keep growing and developing.â&#x20AC;? Says Marc Rubin, Area Sales Director.

BROWARD STAGE DOOR THEATRE PRESENTS PAULETTE DOZIER AS THE TALENTED SINGER BILLY HOLIDAY IN “LADY DAY”: Born Eleanora Fagan, Billy Holiday was a true artist during her time and rose as a social phenomenon during the 1950's. Her soulful, unique singing voice and her ability to turn any song she came in contact with into her own

style of music, made her the superstar she became. Today, Holiday is remembered for the masterpieces she created and her ability to live the words she sang. Although she never went through any technical training or even so much as learning how to read music, she quickly became known as one of the most active and vibrant jazz singers in the country. Holiday’s career received a big boost when she recorded “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “and “Miss Brown to You, which eventually become an important part of American jazz. Paulette Dozier does a great job as Holiday, singing the hits with the same depth and emotional vibrancy that Billy herself would do. She doesn’t try to imitate the star, but takes on the role with somewhat of a likeness. Paulette gives the perfect performance at the Broward Stage Door Theatre, now on stage through August 26, 2012. Tickets are $38 at the box office, located at 8036 West Sample Road, Coral Springs. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.,

Art and Culture Center of Hollywood to Present Justin H. Long’s First Broward County Exhibition

Photo courtesy of Justin H. Long.

HOLLYWOOD - On Friday, Sept. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m., the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood will host an opening reception for three exhibitions Justin H. Long: Bow Movement, Alex Trimino: Luminous, and Lori Nozick: Walkabout. These exhibitions continue through Sunday, Oct. 21 at the Center, located at 1650 Harrison St. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. In his new site-specific exhibition, Miamibased artist Justin H. Long explores his passion for the ocean and sailboat racing with a mixedmedia installation that includes a massive sailboat hull. With a subversive whimsy that is at the core of his work, Long breaks new ground in his first Broward County exhibition by claiming sailing as an art medium, not only a sport. The centerpiece of the exhibit is an approximately 60-foot-long hull that is broken into five sections and gives viewers a window into competing in a solo race around the world. Placed throughout the boat are 20 or so videos showing it in various stages of its round-the-world odyssey. A loose narrative guides the viewer through the boat and the experiences from different parts of the journey. Bow Movement also includes a map that highlights significant travels by sailboats throughout history. Alex Trimino’s exhibition consists of illuminated totem poles that are covered in crochet, knitting, and found objects. In employing such items, the Miami-based artist reveals similarities between modern, high-tech materials (microcontrolled neon lights) and colloquial, low-tech crafts (crochet, knitting and weaving). The works create equilibrium between traditions, technologies, and generations. Old methods and new technologies commingle in ways that explore our connection to today’s reality. Lori Nozick’s site-specific installation focuses on the concept of a passage, a journey through the wilderness. The Miami resident presents life as a walkabout in which we continually explore the unknown in order to discover one’s self in relationship to the universe. General admission to the Center’s galleries are $7 for adults; $4 for students, seniors, and children ages 4 to 17; and free to Center members as well as children under the age of 4. For more information on this exhibition, please call 954.921.3274 or visit The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood presents contemporary gallery exhibitions, live stage performances and high-quality education programs for adults and children. The Center fosters a creative environment where new and challenging work can flourish through programs that reflect the highest standards of artistry and diversity.

HOLLYWOOD - Approximately 750 children and their families turned out for the annual Progress in the Park celebration on August 4 at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in Hollywood. The event, which is held the first Saturday of every August by the City of Hollywood and the United Churches of Liberia, featured 350 elementary school students receiving free backpacks for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year. A new addition this year was free eye-testing provided by Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Thanks to the testing and the Florida Heiken Program, 65 children will receive free eyeglasses. The event also included refreshments, bounce houses, rides and games. Hollywood District 2 Commissioner Beam Furr and Broward County School Board

Hundreds of kids, families turn out for Progress at the Park

member Ann Murray attended the celebration, which is aimed at helping children prepare for the first day of school regardless of their family’s economic position. Hallandale High School’s drum line performed and won this year’s annual Drum Line Showdown. Principals and assistant

principals from Bethune Elementary, Oakridge Elementary, Collins Elementary, Dania Elementary, Attucks Middle School, Olsen Middle School, Hollywood Hills High School and South Broward High School also attended. This year’s Progress in the Park sponsors included: Sun Credit

MAKE-A-WISH DREAM DATE AUCTION RAISES $50,000 Dollars will grant wishes for 10 local kids with life-threatening medical conditions

The efforts of 24 of South Florida’s hottest and most eligible singles will turn into dreams come true for ten local children battling illnesses that threaten their lives. The 24 – bachelors and bachelorettes paired with a pre-planned date activity and on the auction block at Make-A-Wish Southern Florida’s Dream Date Auction – helped the nonprofit organization raise $50,000, enough to grant wishes for 10 sick children.  The 14th annual event featured two double dates (with Florida Panthers Ice Dancers Karlyn and Kaitlin and Isaac and Danilo, actors from the Telemundo telenovela “Relaciones Peligrosa”) and date packages that included courtside seats at a Miami HEAT game, days spent swimming with dolphins, meals at exclusive restaurants, and a night at the Jingle Ball and Enrique Iglesias with Jennifer Lopez concert. The auction took place at Opium Nightclub at the Hard Rock complex in Hollywood and was hosted by Extra special correspondent Michael Yo and Ninalicia from “The Yo Show” on Y-100.  100% of the net proceeds the two helped raise will underwrite the cost of wishes for children who are told by Make-A-Wish to ask for whatever their heart desires.    Children’s wishes usually fall into four categories, said Norm Wedderburn, president & CEO of Make-AWish’s Southern Florida chapter.  “I wish to be’ (something), ‘I wish to meet’ (someone), ‘I wish to go’ (somewhere), and ‘I wish to have’ (something).  I’m proud to say we’ve raised nearly $400,000 during this event’s history to make those dreams a reality.”    Trips to Disney World (32%) are what children wish for most, followed by travel to other places (26%), shopping sprees (14%), meeting a celebrity (7%), and computers/electronics (4%).  Wishes outside of these categories make up the remaining portion of those granted.  “All,” said Wedderburn, “bring hope, strength, and joy to the families that experience them.”    Dream Date Auction sponsors included the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Opium Nightclub, Y100/Clear Channel, Boca Tanning Club, Aloha Watersports, and Sundiver Snorkel tours.    Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida ( has granted more than 8,000 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.  For more information, to make a donation, volunteer or refer a child, contact the foundation at (888) 773-WISH or connect at and on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Chronic pain is debilitating, and quickly erodes quality of life. Now, a new medical technology allows many patients suffering from back or joint pain to avoid surgery and return to the activities and lifestyles they enjoyed previously. Map PEMF Therapy is a painless noninvasive method of delivering a pioneering new branch of an invisible treatment that provides a revolutionary cure you were waiting for. A rapid acceleration which recovers and restores a pain-free lifestyle. The treatment works on all joint problems, tears, sprains, fractures and repetitive injuries such as carpel tunnel, arthritis, and osteoarthritis. What’s truly amazing about MAP PEMF Therapy is that it actually regrows cartilage as well as increases bone density. It has been used by thousands of people, including many professional athletes. MAP PEMF Therapy can help patients avoid hip and knee replacements and provide rapid alternative recovery methods. It is now available at the WellCo Health and Wellness Center in Hallandale Beach. HOW IT WORKS If you have ever held two magnets in your hands, tried to force them together, and felt a resistance between them, then you have experienced a magnetic field.

Dr. OZ talks about PEMF therapy

Treatment helps patients avoid hip and knee replacements and provide rapid alternative recovery methods at the Wellco Health and Wellness Center in Hallandale Beach.


If you have been told you need surgery or have chronic pain, we can help! Read below – to learn about a new, noninvasive neurological soft tissue medicine treatment used by professional athletes, that is now available to the general public.

Magnetic Fields, which are widely used these days to improve circulation and cell metabolism. The body can become accustomed to nonmoving (or static) magnetic fields, which are generally unable to deeply penetrate the body. A pulsed electromagnetic field, however, is quite dynamic, is able to penetrate all the way through the body, and creates a cascade of effects within the body. The MAP PEMF Therapy uses moving magnets creating an en-

ergy wave which changes the way your body copes with pain. The electrical magnets affect the nerve cells which are electrical cells and the magnetic fields affect how the nerves fire and quiet them down without using drugs increasing circulation in the area and aid the healing. Inside the MAP there are electrical coils, and when electricity passes through there it creates a magnetic field that moves through the body whispering at 75 trillion cells in

your body going deep into your body where sports creams and heating pads could never reach such as your spine. The magnetic field turns on activating ions and charged particles bringing in nutrients influencing things like blood cell supply opening up blood cells. You don’t just feel better you are better. The cost is far less than surgery, and patients avoid the long recovery times and possible side effects associated with surgery.

Fitch Ratings once again upgrades Miami Beach's Mount Sinai Medical Center

MIAMI BEACH - New York-based rating The Mount Sinai Heart Institute has developed into one of the agency Fitch Ratings has upgraded Mount state’s strongest cardiovascular service lines, which has resulted Sinai Medical Center’s bond ratings status from in continued strong performance of the hospital’s cardiac surgical BBB- to BBB. Over the past few years, Mount Sinai has continued to generate increased, volume. Mount Sinai has the best cardiac surgery survival rate in positive revenues and effectively manage exFlorida among institutions that perform the highest volume of penses year after year. The upgrade reflects Mount Sinai’s continued complex procedures, captures the largest market share of valve improvement of operating performance and sigsurgeries in Florida, and has the best heart attack survival rate in nificant expense reduction while expanding into the state, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid multiple locations, including satellite offices in Hialeah, Coral Gables, Aventura and Key BisServices’ Hospital Compare data. cayne. The Mount Sinai Heart Institute has developed into one of the state’s strongest cardiovascular service lines, which has resulted in continued strong performance of the hospital’s cardiac surgical volume. Mount Sinai has the best cardiac surgery survival rate in Florida among institutions that perform the highest volume of complex procedures, captures the largest market share of valve surgeries in Florida, and has the best heart attack survival rate in the state, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Hospital Compare data. In addition, births and emergency department visits have continually increased over the last several years. Additional positive rating factors are Mount Sinai’s solid market position as the only hospital on Miami Beach and one of a select few statutory teaching hospitals in the state of Florida. Mount Sinai’s outstanding medical staff provides award-winning care in its centers of excellence, including cardiology, cancer, and neuroscience. The medical center’s ongoing recruitment of high quality, experienced medical staff and its strong community support from donors also made a positive impact on its rating upgrade. Steven D. Sonenreich, Mount Sinai’s President and CEO, attributes the medical center’s success to the board of trustees, its donors and medical staff who embrace the hospital’s mission. “Mount Sinai was established 60 years ago, with the help of visionary community leaders who responded to the need for a new hospital on Miami Beach,” Sonenreich said. “Philanthropy continues to play a role today as does our focus on delivering results-driven academic care that is both high quality and cost efficient.” According to Fitch Ratings, by June 30, 2012, Mount Sinai held $186.6 million of unrestricted cash and investments, equivalent to about 154 days cash on hand – an increase of 63 days since 2008. The upgrade from Fitch Ratings continues to reflect Mount Sinai’s improved operating performance, as also reported back in March when Moody’s Investors Services upgraded Mount Sinai’s outlook to stable at a higher-level rating.

Offering the most advanced technology to treat hearing loss AMERICAN • HEARING • EXCELLENCE FREE HEARING EVALUATION

Hearing loss can be devious. It may not be readily apparent to the person who suffers from it, because the process is often an insidious one. “It can take eight to 10 years before someone with gradual hearing loss becomes aware of it,” says Rick Cox, owner of Audibel Hearing Centers in Hallandale Beach. “Someone else who is close to the person often notices it first.” Subtle signs of hearing loss include needing to turn up the volume of the TV or radio farther than before, having to ask others to repeat what they said, or needing to be closer to someone who is speaking to you. If you do suspect you might be experiencing hearing loss, the first thing to do is to have your condition evaluated by a professional. It may be something that can be treated medically. “Sometimes it’s as simple as wax buildup,” Cox says. “Or it may be an infection of some kind. Then we send the person to an ear, nose and throat doctor.” NEW TECHNOLOGY IS AVAILABLE If, however, you have a loss that requires sound amplification, there is good news. New technology has resulted in devices that are far superior to those of yesteryear. Gone are the large, unsightly hearing aids of the past. “It used to be that appearance was a big reason people refused to get a hearing aid,” Cox says. But now, many of them fit into the ear canal so no one else knows you are wearing one.” Even more important, many of today’s digital hearing aids are designed to adjust automatically to your environment. A modern hearing aid may be able, for example, to perform differently in an intimate, one-to-one conversation than it does when you are in a group or in other situations where there is significant background noise. CHOOSING THE RIGHT DEVICE FOR YOU Hearing aids vary in

You Are Invited to a Special Demonstration on the Newest Technology in Hearing Aids 1. You are planning to invest in New Hearing Aids any time in the near future. 2. You have never worn hearing aids before and want to make an informed and educated decision about wearing them. 3. You want to see how small and hidden wearing a hearing aid can be.

Rick Cox, owner of Audibel Hearing Centers in Hallandale Beach has been in the hearing care business for 38 years.

Hearing loss can be devious. It may not be readily apparent to the person who suffers from it, because the process is often an insidious one. “It can take eight to 10 years before someone with gradual hearing loss becomes aware of it,” says Rick Cox, owner of Audibel Hearing Centers in Hallandale Beach.

their performance and cost, and to help the patient choose the one that is right for him or her, Cox first asks about lifestyle and habits. “Someone who mostly stays at home may want a different device than someone who has a very active lifestyle,” he notes. Fitting the hearing aid correctly and then making sure it is serving the patient in the best possible way requires time and follow-up. “It’s not just a matter of putting in the hearing aid and sending the person out the door,” Cox says.

“Much of what we do is counseling, and helping the patient get used to the device.”

RETRAINING THE BRAIN When a person begins to lose his or her hearing, the brain starts to forget what particular sounds are like, Cox explains. “Then when you get a hearing aid, you are rewiring the brain so it relearns those sounds,” he says. “But because you’re no longer used to the sounds, adjusting to them again may be a very gradual process.”

After an initial fitting, an average patient is likely to have a return visit scheduled in one week to see how the device is performing and how he or she is adjusting. The next follow-up might be two weeks beyond that. “But someone else might need to come back the next day after the first fitting,” Cox says. “We do whatever the person requires to make the process easy and worry-free.” Success with a hearing aid can, in fact, depend on the rapport a patient establishes with the hearing professional.

2500 East Hallandale Beach Blvd. Arcade A (Located on the ground floor inside the Millennium Office Bldg.)

It’s not unusual for someone with hearing loss to become depressed and anxious, and to have feelings of isolation.

“It’s similar to when you go to your doctor for treatment,” Cox says. “If he or she doesn’t treat you right or doesn’t make you feel valued, you’re not likely to want to go back again.”

EARLY INTERVENTION IS IMPORTANT It is important to treat hearing loss as early as possible. “People sometimes say, ‘well, I’m not deaf yet, so I don’t need to do anything,’” Cox says. “But when you begin to lose your hearing, it can seriously reduce your ability to communicate with people around you. You may still hear some of what’s being said, but you’re missing bits and pieces. The brain is quick to try to sort things out, but it starts to guess at things, and as that happens more and more, it can make mistakes.” The individual may become withdrawn or even reclusive. “It’s not unusual for someone with hearing loss to become depressed and anxious, and to have feelings of isolation,” Cox says. “Sometimes, he or she

Subtle signs of hearing loss include needing to turn up the volume of the TV or radio farther than before, having to ask others to repeat what they said, or needing to be closer to someone who is speaking to you.

may even develop symptoms similar to those of Alzheimer’s and may be misdiagnosed.” INDIVIDUALIZED CARE AT AUDIBEL When you visit Audibel Hearing Centers, you will receive individualized, customized care that will help you choose the right hearing device for you. “For us, it’s all about the patient,” Cox says. “Our satisfaction comes from helping someone have better quality of life and enjoy themselves more.” Cox has been in the business for 38 years. To get an idea of how things have changed, consider how digitized technology has improved devices like TVs and cameras.

Five tips for fast, healthy meals on a budget

(ARA) - What do time and money have in common? They're worth a lot, and we could always use more of each. Between managing a packed schedule and trying to stretch every dollar, getting a healthy meal on the table may seem impossible. Smart planning and shopping can make it easier on any budget, so mealtime can be nutritious, tasty and stress-free to prepare. Consider these five tips to plan and prepare quick, nutritious and affordable meals: 1. Plan ahead: Studies show one-third of Americans decide what to make for dinner at the last minute, which can lead you to choose less-thanhealthy foods. Plan your meals ahead of time and go to the supermarket with a shopping list, so you avoid impulse buys. Stick to your list and budget. 2. Go online to find quick recipes: The Internet offers countless places to find recipes the whole family will enjoy and tips to cut preparation time. Search for

recipes that use ingredients that are affordable and easy to prepare. Consider searching for recipes on sites like and 3. Keep frequently used ingredients in your pantry: Canned tomatoes, beans, tuna and other foods can be stored in the pantry until you're ready to prepare a quick and delicious meal. Another plus: A recent study in the Journal of Nutrition and Food Sciences shows canned foods help families meet their dietary goals for key nutrients, often at a lower costper-nutrient than fresh or frozen varieties. 4. Look for meals that can be prepared in advance: Cook ahead on days when you have time or double-up on recipes of your favorite soups and sauces; freeze half to use on one of those especially timecrunched weeknights. 5. Explore protein alternatives: Traditionally, meat has been at the center of America's dinner plate, but

Remember, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that a healthy, affordable diet should include all forms (canned, fresh, frozen and dried) of fruits, vegetables, beans and seafood. Consider comparing the overall value of fresh, canned and frozen forms of the same vegetable or fruit to decide which best suits your family's needs. This Confetti Picnic Salad is a healthy side

that can be expensive every night. Experiment with non-meat proteins, such as beans, seafood and soy-based foods and try "no cook" meals like salads. Combining seasonal fresh produce in a green salad with affordable proteinalternatives, including canned beans and tuna, helps stretch the food budget and add critical nutrients. Use these tips to help your family get the most nutrition from every meal by making smart choices from
