Dreaming a Little Dream of His By Marylynne Newmark

For local boy Preston C. Howell, the past week-and-a-half must have seemed like a dream come true after all four chairs turned for him on the blind audition of “The Voice”. He belted out the silky provocative voice of a crooner from the forties and wowed the judges and the audience with his jazz-like version of the 1931 hit “Dream a Little Dream of Me”. The amazing thing is that Preston Howell is only fourteen years old with classic good looks that make him seem older in a very sophisticated way. The judges loved him, likening him to Michael Buble. Each judge, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Gwen Stefani heaped praises on him and made tremendous overtures to Preston to select him or her to be his coach.

Referring to his age, Blake Shelton said, “You’re either born with a voice like that, or you’re not. And for you, being born with that was not so long ago!” John Legend applauded him for “taking on a music standard that most people would not have the ‘kahones’ to do.” Gwen Stefani asked, “How can you be only 14 with a voice like that? My son is 13 and his voice is like this,” as she made gargling, cracked sounds. Kelly Clarkson yelled “I love you!” and said she wanted to take Preston home to be his parent. After much cajoling, Preston chose John Legend to be his coach and mentor. “You made the right choice,” tweeted a fan later that evening. “John will lead you on the right path.” Preston was born into music. He grew up singing along with his dad, Paul Howell, who sang professionally for a short while, but now “sings every day, usually in his closet along with the Smule app”, jokes Preston’s mom. She reports that at the age of four, Preston began mimicking his dad, singing all types of music. While very young, Preston took a liking to ballads by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Elvis. Hits like “Fly Me ToThe Moon” and “That’s Amore” were his favorites. ”It was about that time that Michael Buble became popular and

The Humane Society of Greater Miami has launched an important fundraising effort that will enable the organization to take in and treat even more of the community’s homeless animals. The $1.5 million initiative will be allocated for expansion of the Humane Society’s facility, a project that began in 2017 and is set to break ground in 2020. As Miami-Dade’s pet homelessness problem continues to be a prominent issue, the Humane Society’s capacity to assist remains limited. As an adoption guarantee facility, the Humane Society is able to provide shelter and care for hundreds of dogs and cats while they wait for their permanent home, no matter how long it takes. However, once there is no more space in the facility, they are no longer able to take in additional animals. By adding space that will be dedicated to taking in pets who need extended time at

The Soffer Family Leading The Way For Miami-Dade’s Pet Homelessness Problem

RELIEF FOR A BASEBALL ICON Bucky Dent’s Cataract Surgery is a Homerun at Braverman Eye Center While Bucky Dent is most famous for his home run in a tiebreaker game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park at the end of the 1978 regular season, this south Florida native has done so much during his 67 years. As a former football and baseball standout at Hialeah High in the late 1960’s, Dent’s career has truly been filled with more ups than downs – and being part of the historic New York Yankee organization for decades – he cherishes every moment. But as much as he has been “Superman” to so many baseball

fans throughout the years, Dent is just like all of us when it comes to his eyesight, and when he had cataract surgery on March 12, it brought relief from years of vision that wasn’t so perfect. His visit to the spacious, state of the art, Braverman Eye Center in Hollywood for an initial consultation, brought smiles and plenty of optimism about his vision and how it could be corrected. “My eye doctor back in Connecticut felt that I needed cataract surgery, and because of my home here in south Florida, immediately suggested Dr. (Stanley) Braverman,” Dent

recalled. “From the first time I went for the consultation, it was amazing. Dr. Braverman and his staff went over everything with me.” Like anyone when it comes to having anything to do with the eyes, Dent was obviously concerned, but that meeting with Dr. Braverman eased all of that. Dent has been wearing glasses for years, and because his vision was getting blurry and he was having a tough time seeing, the surgery was needed to keep up that quality lifestyle. Because of his busy schedule, still working with the

Yankees, his plan was to do the first one in March, which was successful, and then come back later on and get the other eye done. “I can tell you this, within the first few days of the surgery – when things started to come together – it was amazing how

clearly I was seeing. Because the other eye needs to have the same procedure done, you can see the difference.” As for the surgery, it could not have gone better. Dent was pleased. He is looking forward to Braverman, Page 2B

The $1.5 million initiative will be allocated for expansion of the Humane Society’s facility, a project that began in 2017 and is set to break ground in 2020.

Soffer Famliy From Page 1A the shelter due to medical needs or other processing requirements, they will be able to give even more homeless dogs and cats in need the extra care that they require and a chance at a happy and healthy life with a loving family. “This project will allow us to save more dogs and cats than ever by increasing the amount of space we have available to pull animals from local open-admit shelters, thus keeping them off the streets,” says Executive Director, Laurie Hoffman. “We need to create more room to receive animals,” Hoffman adds. “The additional space would allow us to quarantine and treat them should they get sick, and in the event that the disease contracted is contagious, we need to have the ability to isolate them from the rest of the shelter animals in order to ensure every pet’s excellent health. This project will be crucial in helping us achieve

those goals.” Not only will the expansion allow the Humane Society to take in more animals than ever before, it will help them take in even more large dogs. Large dogs (dogs over 40 pounds) make up more than half of the organization’s canine population. The overabundance of large breed dogs is not a problem unique to this Miami shelter, but is present in animal shelters and rescue groups throughout South Florida. Labradors, Bulldogs, Shepherds and other large breed mixes enter shelters daily and unfortunately, there is not always space to take them all in. The new wing will allow the organization to take in twice the amount of large dogs, which they hope over time will lead to a notable reduction in the number of big dogs roaming the streets. Additionally, the Humane Society will be able to help open-admit shelters around the community by pulling animals from their facilities and caring for them in the newly created space; thus, saving more lives. Not only will this project

So, after a search for the right fit, his parents enrolled him in a musical theatre group in Davie called Broadway Kids. He continued with them for four years, eventually becoming a member of their Star Performers specialty group that participated in community events, theater shows, and dance competitions. About the same time, Preston landed one of his most cherished roles as Gavroche in “Les

Company in Coral Gables, a local conservatory that trains young professionals on everything involving musical theatre. During that time, he was cast in two major lead roles, as Tommy Ross in “Carrie the Musical” and as Jimmy Smith in “Millie the Musical”. In 2018, Scott Hoying and Ben Bram. the crea-

tors of Pentatonix, held an open casting for a young acapella group they were creating, calling it AcaPop. After four auditions, Preston was cast as the male bass of the group. Acapop has been recording and filming several music videos, to be released soon. Preston also is the singer in Miami Squadz, a

song and dance group of super talented kids who Preston met while filming music videos. Over the past two years, Miami Squadz has been in demand to perform in local fund-raising events for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Special Olympics and Boys and Girls Club of Broward. Preston currently is a sophomore at Florida Christian School in Miami. He has been in the choir program there since the third grade under the direction of musical director Jeanine Stemmer. With her encouragement, he stuck to performing and has been a member of his church band at Christ Covenant Church. Preston is very serious about his singing. He takes every advantage to learn and better himself. For the past three summers, he has participated in an intensive three-week program with the Broadway Artist Intensive in West Palm Beach. Music is his priority, and he hopes one day to “really make it” as a jazz pop soloist. He says that he truly connects with jazz. “I love all music as an outlet for my emotions and feelings,” says Preston. “It’s how my spirit takes wings and soars to unfathomable heights.” His next appearance on The Voice will be in a highy competitive round called

“The Battle”, in which Preston will be paired with one of the other members of Team Legend during which they sing the same song together, but one must outshine the other to avoid elimination. Of course, the one who gets eliminated is up for grabs by one of the other judges. Preston’s “battle” has not been scheduled yet, as more blind auditions are still on schedule. However, you can be sure he is using this time wisely, to wow them all over again. He’s already off to a great start. Social media caught fire immediately, and fans are brewing up a storm on Twitter. The Voice, season 17, airs every Monday and Tuesday night on NBC at 9 PM. Aside from introducing new talent to the world, and offering them the opportunity to be coached by at least one of the country’s top singing sensations, one of these musical candidates has the opportunity to win $100,000 and a record deal. The show is also highly competitive for the judges, who all want their candidate to win, since they receive a cash award to be donated to their favorite charity as well as the glory of the win. Good Luck, Preston! We’re all rooting for our local signing sensation. Live that dream!

How We Can Continue To Grow Positively By Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Adams

The year is winding down, coming to a slow end. This is the time to reflect on the changes that have been made and how we can continue to grow positively as a City. When coming together amazing things are possible. This past weekend Gulfstream Park and others held its Pink, Pride, Stride walk/run to bring awareness to a great cause. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer in women. Most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. Therefore, a mammogram, the screening test for breast cancer, can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. The walk/run included informative booths and survivors of the disease. While there I was able to meet two courageous survivors Roxy and Cora of cancer which showed the importance of the preventive measure we must take. The pair outwalked me during the event which showed the strength of these women. Although you may not be directly affected by the disease lending a helping hand and giving support means a lot not only to the individual but to our community as we are a whole. The walk/run through the famous Gulfstream Park started at gates and ended in Pegasus Park, where there was food, drinks, giveaways, contests and more. Water was provided every half a mile to ensure the well-being of all participants.

Before the walk/run one of the fitness coaches from the Hallandale Orange Theory warmed up the crowd with stretches and quick movements to prepare everyone for the walk/run. All registration proceeds went to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation to continue its efforts to combat the illness. Max Costanzo, made a generous donation of $5000 to the cause which I personally thank him for. Companies and organizations such as the Beach Walk (Jorge and John), Signarama (Alex and Adrianna), and the Rotary Club play major roles in our community and contributed to the event as well. To continue to show our support the City Hall along with neighborhood land marks such as the Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue Station 90 and The Village at Gulfstream Park will shine pink to raise awareness. Together we can make amazing things happen! La Hacienda Farmers Market has opened its doors for business located at 1700 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd at the RK Shopping Center across from Winn Dixie. The 5,000 square-foot second location is a beautiful store which sells nothing but the freshest produce and goodies alike. The products and fruits are always locally sourced from the South Florida neighborhoods to ensure the freshest products. The store not only pledges to provide top quality but also at reasonable prices. With a sharp feeling of their market, La Hacienda Farmers Market includes Kosher items, Israeli and Hispanic items as well. Be sure to stop by and get

your organic fresh items. On October 1st, 2019 Miami Spine and Performance held its ribbon cutting for the new addition to our City. The office is located at 1250 East Hallandale Beach Blvd. Suite 305 Hallandale Beach, Florida 33009. I was delighted to be apart this new addition. Miami Spine and Performance goal is to fill the void of uncertainty and inconsistent care. Each patient is given undivided attention to ensure all aspects are covered to properly provide services. Miami Spine and Performance is fortunate enough to treat professional athletes across multiple sports, working professionals, youth athletes and families. Doctors at the office specialize in musculoskeletal care and work with all types of injuries including back, neck, knee and shoulder pain as well as sports injuries and chronic pain. The overall goal is to aide in the well-being of our residents and others. We are excited about this new addition and look forward to the positivity that they will bring to our community. Welcome to the City of Hallandale Beach! I’m always open to hear the opinions and feedback from our community. A great way to get your voices heard is at our next Commission Meeting on October 11, 2019, at 5:30 PM in the City’s Commission Chambers. If you are unavailable to attend, I can be reached at (954) 457-1318. Be sure to follow us on all social media platforms for all up to date information. As always Enjoy our wonderful City and Be safe!

HEALTH Sport Aches And Pains Getting You Down?? Let The Power Of Shockwave Therapy Heal Your Entire Body!!! The Shockwave Therapy healing method uses modern technology to provide patients with safe and high-quality physiotherapy treatment. This method of physiotherapy works by accelerating the healing process in the body through stimulating your metabolism and improving blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. The shockwave machine applies strong energy pulses to affected areas, which occur for short periods of time creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The resulting force penetrates tissues where it stimulates the cells that are responsible for connective tissues and bone healing. The effectiveness of this method offers many benefits to help the body when it has not been able to heal itself. Extracorporeal shock-wave therapy (ESWT) has been widely used in clinical practice for managing various orthopedic conditions. The ESWT has shown to exert an overall positive effect on the treatment success rate, pain reduction, and range of motion restoration in patients with soft tissue disorders. Various research studies suggest that focused shock wave therapy can relieve pain and can serve as an ideal alternative treatment option. The efficacy of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) has been shown to be a great alternative to standard treatments and surgery. • By the targeted application of shockwaves, stress to the sur-

rounding tissues is quite insignificant. The body is not burdened by pharmaceuticals, except the short-term effect of local anesthesia, if used. • Other benefits include preventing surgical intervention and its relevant hazards. • Thanks to ambulatory treatment, work absences are reduced to a minimum. Additionally, routine absences for sports athletes is likewise reduced. • Soft tissue injuries and tendinopathies account for large numbers of chronic musculoskeletal disorders. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is popular and effective in the management of chronic tendon conditions in the elbow, shoulder, and at and around the heels. For some indications, such as Tennis or Golf Elbow, there really is no other effective treatment. Shockwave Therapy Treatment Has Shown Great Benefits For Muscles And Tendons In These Areas 1. Elbows 2. Neck, Shoulders 3. Wrist 4. Back, Hips, Groin 5. Legs, Hamstring 6. Knees 7. Shin, Achilles Tendons 8. Feet, Heels Plus the energy pulses of the Shockwave Therapy healing method have also been able to provide patients with safe

relief of general muscle aches and pains, as well as provide general wellness massage and skin elasticity benefits. Main Benefits Of Shockwave Therapy Treatment Non-surgical Treatment, Easy to Apply - Clients don’t need to worry about undergoing painful surgical procedures to heal. As an easy and effective procedure, Shockwave Therapy is beneficial since the modern machines used are intuitive and easy to use, therefore clients can apply this treatment. Accelerated Healing The key benefit of Shockwave Therapy is that it highly accelerates healing, allowing clients to go back to their normal lives within the shortest possible

amount of time. Just by undergoing a few sessions of this type of therapy, one can start to feel the healing effects in minutes. Safe and Effective, with Minimal Side Effects - This method has been tested by highly-qualified professionals who confirm that it is safe and effective. Another key benefit that people who undergo Shockwave Therapy appreciate is minimal side effects. This means that patients spend their full time on healing without the pains and down time of negative side effects. Affordable and Convenient Other factors that make Shockwave Therapy so appealing is that clients can enjoy speedy and affordable healing by

visiting our Hallandale clinic or in the comfort of their own home if they want to purchase our portable units. Modern Therapy also has available the latest peptide therapy programs: • For sexual health (ED) we have our exclusive Sexotropin PT141 peptide. • For injuries, pain, and regeneration we have Celltropin BPC157 peptide for optimal skin, bone, ligament and tendon repair. We also offer the latest Exosome Therapy for other treatments such as Hair Restoration, Skin Rejuvenation, and Sexual Enhancement.

Braverman Eye Center is located at: 1050 N. Federal Highway, Hollywood, Florida 33020.

Braverman From Page 1A getting the other eye done and cannot recommend Dr. Braverman and the Braverman Eye Center enough. Said Dr. Braverman, “Bucky had a great result from the surgery. He is 20/ 20 with no correction!” “The experience was tremendous and there was NOT a step that wasn’t explained,” said Dent, who also had his astigmatism corrected at the same time as the cataract surgery. “It certainly makes my daily life a lot easier.” DENT’S GAME 163 HOMER Dent’s unlikely homer 41 years ago is one of the most famous plays in history. The bat he used to clear the Monster wasn’t his own. Teammate Mickey Rivers, another south Florida prospect (Miami Northwestern) noticed that Dent’s bat had a crack in the

handle, and so he lent his lumber to Dent midway through his pivotal plate appearance. Dent is the only player to homer in a one-game tiebreaker out of the No. 9 spot in the lineup. He hit out of the ninth spot in all but 12 of his appearances during the 1978 campaign. He wasn’t the only player who homered that day at Fenway. Future Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski and Reggie Jackson also had homers as well, with Jackson’s eighth-inning solo homer proving to be the difference in the one-run contest.

Dent’s moment in the sun didn’t end in the tiebreaker. After a quiet ALCS performance against the Royals, he hit .417 (10-for-24) with seven RBIs to claim World Series MVP honors in the Yankees’ six-game triumph over the Dodgers. For the baseball fans who watched him play from the day he was drafted in 1970 by the Chicago White Sox in the first round, you will be happy to know that Russell “Bucky” Dent is doing well – and seeing better than ever. WHAT ARE CATARACTS? A cataract is formed when the natural lens of the eye, responsible for focusing light and producing sharp images, becomes cloudy and hardens, resulting in a loss of visual function. The lens of the eye is clear at birth but is one of the first parts of the body to show the effects of aging. A cataract is painless and usually develops gradually over several months or years. The onset of a

cataract in one or both eyes may cause decreased night vision, impaired depth perception, and increased color distortion. Cataracts are the leading cause of vision loss among adults age 55 and older. In fact, poor vision from cataracts affects 60 percent of all adults over age 60. However, cataracts also can result from injury, heredity, or medications, so they can affect people of all ages. Understanding that no two conditions or patients are the same, Dr. Braverman analyzes the patient’s symptoms, per-

forms a comprehensive eye exam, and may test for glare disability and contrast sensitivity before making a diagnosis. The final decision to proceed with the surgery belongs to the patient. Your optometrist or Dr. Braverman may prescribe glasses, medication or surgery depending on your symptoms, complaints and age. Usually surgery will not be recommended until glasses no longer work to make you visually happy. In the case of clear lensectomy surgery, the patient cosmetically wants to get rid of their glasses, but they are out of the LASIK treatment range. CATARACT SURGERY: WHAT TO EXPECT Thanks to new advancements, this is a great time to have cataract surgery. Your eye is like a camera. It has photographic paper (the retina), and a camera lens. Two excellent options exist for cataract surgery. The choice is yours. Traditional Cataract Surgery is the removal of your cloudy natural camera lens, which is usually dissolved using high frequency ultrasound through a small (less than 3 millimeter) opening. If your eye qualifies, the second option, Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery can now be done using state of the art Femtosecond Laser technology to assist with parts of the cataract surgical procedure, including softening up the cloudy camera lens. This Femtosecond Laser Assisted Surgery reduces the amount of high frequency ultrasound needed. Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery takes a delicate procedure and refines it even more, so that the surgical precision is unparalleled. The computer-guided accuracy of the laser compliments your doctor’s skills with today’s latest technology. An artificial man made clear lens is then placed inside the eye

where the cloudy lens used to be. There are several types of high quality premium vision lenses that can be used, giving you potentially better results than with a standard basic lens. After the surgery, eye drops are given to the patient to aid in the healing of the eye, which takes a few months, but the patient is able to return to normal activity almost immediately after surgery and usually sees well within just days. If the eye is otherwise healthy, cataract surgery is successful in more than 98% of patients and they enjoy improved vision after the procedure. Cataract surgery continues to improve. Recent developments include no-stitch surgery, topical anesthesia, surgical correction of astigmatism, new upgraded premium lens designs, Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, and Dr. Braverman’s newly trademarked LACE™ procedure. The LACE™ procedure, if you are deemed a candidate, can nearly always guarantee that the patient will need no glasses for distance vision, and no glasses for distance or near vision if a multifocal lens implant is used. At the Braverman Eye Center, we are proud to offer the advanced AMO CATALYS® Precision Laser System, for unsurpassed Femtosecond Laser Assisted cataract surgery performance. About Dr. Stanley Braverman Dr. Stanley Braverman is a Voluntary Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Miami School of Medicine’s Anne Bates Leach Eye Hospital/ Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. He is also an Adjunct Associate Clinical Professor at the Nova Southeastern School of Optometry and the official LASIK and Cataract Surgeon for the Florida Panthers. In addition to treating patients, Dr. Braverman, a board certified ophthalmologist, has been a medical researcher, and is the inventor of several eye surgical instruments, and author of many articles for medical journals. Dr. Braverman’s newly trademarked LACE™ procedure (Laser Assisted Cataract

Extraction) provides the best possible cataract surgical results. He has lectured at professional meetings about upgraded lens implants, advanced cataract surgery and LASIK, both nationally and internationally. He has been recognized by Newsweek Magazine as one of the Fifteen Leaders in Laser Eye Surgery in 2011, and recently co-authored a book on Z-Lasik that is being distributed internationally. You can find it on Amazon.com. An initial cataract or LASIK consultation can be scheduled by calling the Braverman Eye Center at: (954) 458-2112 or (305) 374-8694.

Family Favorites with a Blended Twist If you are raising picky eaters, there’s a cooking technique that makes some of kids’ favorite foods - like burgers and nachos - more nutritious while still tasting delicious. Mushrooms, with their inher(Family Features)

ent umami flavor, are a perfect addition to blend into meals to increase both flavor and nutrition. Chefs kicked off the trend by blending finely chopped mushrooms with meat for burgers that are flavorful, healthy and Earth-friendly, and now blended burgers are showing up in school cafeterias, supermarket meat counters and fast food drive-thrus.

“Blended entrees like burgers are a win-win-win for families wanting to eat better,” said Dayle Hayes, registered dietitian and founder of School Meals That Rock. “Mushrooms add delicious umami flavor, reduce fat and sodium in many popular dishes and kids love them.” Another fan of blending is MasterChef Junior finalist and teen chef, Evan Robinson. Robinson likes to blend with multiple varieties of mushrooms in family favorites such as tacos, burgers and stuffed peppers. “I find that blending mushrooms into some of my go-to recipes helps increase the flavor while reducing the amount of fat and sodium,” Robinson said. If you’re ready to start blending at home, it can be a simple process for introducing foods to even the pickiest of eaters. Recruit kids as kitchen helpers to tackle tasks such as wiping mushrooms clean and using their hands to blend the meat and mushrooms together.

For more family-friendly, blended recipes, visit Blenditarian.com. Blended Mushroom Nachos Recipe courtesy of Chef Evan Robinson Servings: 4 • 5 shiitake mushrooms • 5 white button mushrooms • 1 clove garlic • 1/4 cup chopped onions • 1 tablespoon Mexican meat seasoning • 10 ounces ground turkey Cheese Sauce: • 1 tablespoon butter • 1 tablespoon flour • 1 cup milk • 1 1/4 cups Mexican blend • shredded cheese • tortilla chips • salsa (optional) • guacamole (optional) • kale (optional) • romaine lettuce (optional) • tomatoes (optional) • cilantro (optional) • diced red bell peppers (optional) In blender or food processor, pulse mushrooms, garlic and onions. In large saute pan over medium-high heat, mix finely chopped mushroom mixture with seasoning and cook 2 minutes.

Add ground turkey, breaking into fine crumbles until completely cooked through. Set aside. To make cheese sauce: In medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter then add flour and whisk constantly, breaking up lumps. Stir 2 minutes then add milk and continuously whisk. Stir in cheese and mix with wooden spoon. Assemble chips on serving platter; spread mushroom-meat crumble on top. Add cheese sauce and toppings like salsa, guacamole, kale, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro and diced red bell peppers, if desired. A Cooking Technique You Need to Know: Blending Blending involves mixing finely chopped mushrooms with ground meat for more nutritious, but still delicious, burgers, tacos, meatballs and more. 1. Chop your favorite mushroom variety to match the consistency of the ground meat. This can be done with a knife or food processor. 2. Blend the chopped mushrooms with the ground meat. 3. Cook with Mexican seasoning mix for tacos, marinara sauce for meaty ragu or salt and pepper for juicy, flavorful burgers.

Pizza Burgers Recipe courtesy of Chef Evan Robinson Servings: 4 • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil • 1 medium portabella mushroom, • finely chopped • 2-3 white button mushrooms, • finely chopped • 1/2 small onion • 1/2 clove garlic • 2 teaspoons Italian-style • herb seasoning • 8 ounces ground beef • salt, to taste • pizza or marinara sauce • shredded mozzarella cheese • hamburger buns In large pan over mediumhigh heat, saute extra-virgin olive oil, mushrooms, onions, garlic and herb seasoning approximately 5 minutes until vegetables are soft.
