By Larry Blustein Sun Times This is the week every local and national racing fan waits for - with great anticipation. Live thoroughbred racing, and it's on the way starting this Saturday, Dec. 1 at Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino in Hallandale Beach. After a long live season at Calder, the scene shifts to one of the premier entertainment hotbeds in South Florida. With the economy the way it's been, this is perfect shot-in-the-arm for everyone locally. This is what we've waited for over the past seven months. The perfect mix of premier horse racing, casino gaming and dining at one spot. "The opening of Gulfstream in December, instead of January, makes a huge difference," said Ellen Lovello, who comes to Hallandale Beach every year for the weather and the rac-


ing card at Gulfstream. "They give many restaurants and businesses locally a huge lift. That is on top of what it means to those who go through those lean days on the Gulfstream property." Indeed, anchor

restaurants and grocery stores such as Jacob's Classic Market can only attract so many visitors. The entertainment, casinos and racing must stand alone - and this is their time to help make a major impact. With all the promo-

tional events that this facility hosts, this is the time of year that the entire park bene-

It’s back to business as many issues loom for Hallandale Beach

HALLANDALE BEACH - Hope all our readers had a great Thanksgiving! Our City Commission held our regular meeting last Monday. After all the pomp and circumstance of our swearing in ceremony the new commission went right to work. Before reporting on the meeting I want to apologize for a typo in the last article that left off the “w” in Commissioner Michele Lazarow’s name. After writing this article for almost 10 years I continue to have a deeper appreciation for the fine art of not only writing but proof reading. My apologies. The first course of business was the implementation of our numbered seat assignments which I covered last week.

RESPOSIBLE BANKING POLICY TO BE REVIEWED Under commission communications Vice Mayor Alex Lewy asked that Staff review a responsible banking policy that he has seen implemented in other communities around the country. It was agreed that Staff would look at our current practices and see if a resolution or ordinance would be necessary. BIKE LANES IMPLEMENTED ON NE 10th and NE 8th I asked that Staff look

Mayor Joy Cooper

into better marking and signage for the bike lanes that are being installed as part of the project on NE 10th an NE 8th Avenue. The original plan to replace the double one way street with two way traffic was changed to reducing the roadway to one lane. Since the city has marked the lane change drivers are not following the new pattern. The City Manager will be updating the commission during the next meeting on what can be done to improve and enforce the new lane change. MORATORIUM ON THE ISSUING OF NEW FILM PERMITS Over the past years our city has been very welcoming to the film industry. We have had the Sopranos filmed here, Glades, a reality show and even a show on our city that will be highlighted on national TV. The intent of our city is not to ban filming, but to continue to support the

filming industry. We are looking to amend our permitting process to insure that individual property owners and residents are not being adversely impacted. Our current ordinance does not allow for any denials and needs to be fine tuned. Recently Miami Beach started to look at this issue as well. Some homeowners are up in arms that their once quite residential communities have become the staging areas for reoccurring shows. Staff will be working to review changes and improvements to our regulations focused on the quality of life of our residents while supporting the growing film industry. The moratorium was passed 5-0.

CITY APPROVES LOAN PROGRAM FOR VEHICLES This past budget the City Commission approved a lease purchase program for our city vehicles. The program will allow our city to lease vehicles and plan for vehicle replacements in a more streamlined cost savings manor. Currently the city programs into the annual budget a replacement schedule that is proposed annually. In years when the budget is lean vehicle purchases are often postponed. This delays the purchase but then creates issues in the fol-

lowing years and increases maintenance costs. The new program allows for smoothing out the purchases. When the lease is up the city will own the vehicle and will be able to sell them.

CITY APPROVES NEW SHOPPING CENTER Over the past years our commission has been focused on improving the western side of Hallandale Beach Boulevard. We recently dedicated a new shopping center on the north side of HBB and last commission meeting we approved the redevelopment of the Southeast corner of SW 10th Avenue. The new center will replace a vacant lot that once was the site of an old gas station and the original McDonalds. The development was passed 5-0. COMMISSIONS

APPROVES ADDITIONAL SENIOR EXEMPTION FOR 2013 In 1998 the state constitution provided the opportunity for cities to adopt an additional senior exemption yearly by ordinance. In 2001 we adopted an additional exemption and when it was not going to adversely impact other taxpayers we committed to provide this relief. Over the last years the city commission was reluctant to displace the cost on to others taxpayers. Since values have begun to rise in our city and the average age of our population has decreased the commission agreed to revisit the additional exemption this year. The impact is projected to be only 49,000 for 2013. The city passed the ordinance on a 5-0 vote, which will give relief to our full time seniors over 65 that are


GREEN TIP: Hallandale Beach approved a partnership with Broward County “Go Solar” program. Have you thought about investing in solar panels to save on energy costs? The county has established a new program that will allow you to purchase solar panels and enjoy expedited permitting to have them installed. We adopted a resolution supporting the partnership and amended our building code to allow for the placement of panels.

card— we bring to the table the most tasteful and tasty choice in sculpted fruit arrangements! Heck, if you feel like celebrating because it’s Tuesday (or any other day that end in “y”), we have our just because bouquets—perfect for everything else!

Page 5A

these memorable gifts truly make an impact on those who receive them. An ideal gift to send to homes or offices, many recipients site the ability to share their gift with friends and colleagues as a major plus. Any bouquet can be made more festive with a holiday container, if requested. The option of adding chocolate dipped berries to any order, in an arrangement or boxed separately, is available.

WHAT'S NEW AT FRUITFLOWERS Fresh for this holiday season, we have many new products to pique your palette. If it’s Christmas you’re celebrating, we suggest our Sleigh Bells or, if you are looking for a more personal-sized arrangement, you might consider our Fruitful Joy. Additionally, for our friends celebrating Hanukkah, we have our Festive Hanukkah arrangement. For those simply wishing to celebrate the wonders of winter, our Holiday Grand Floral Fruit is equally scrumptious. We invite you to visit us on the web at for our full selection of arrangements.

WHY US? At FruitFlowers, we create floral masterpieces of color and aroma and— they’re edible! We use only the highest-quality produce—all of the fruit is ripe, sweet and juicy. Our signature bouquet is called the Grand Floral Fruit. Brimming with pineapple daisies with leaves made of honeydew and cantaloupe, interspersed with succulent strawberries, tropical kiwi and mouth-watering grapes, this arrangement is perfect for any occasion. We also provide sculpted vegetable arrangements—particularly fitting for parties this season. Our arrangements are made fresh to order. Since we receive shipments of fruit every day, there is no need for added preservatives or frozen fruits. Many of our clients report preferring our dark chocolate dipped strawberries to old favorite desserts including cupcakes, pies, and ice cream. Since each piece in our bouquet is on a grab-friendly skewer, FruitFlowers makes a great snack. People know that eating fruit is good for their health but whole fruits in a bowl do not have the same appeal as when they are peeled, cut and arranged in to form aesthetically-pleasing arrangements. If you are looking to share, we will work with you to bring to the table a bouquet customsized to your exact needs! THE IMPORTANCE OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES When consumed as part of a well-balanced diet, fruits and vegetables are healthy options that have been shown to decrease your risk for chronic diseases including Type 2 diabetes and even cancer. Fruits and veggies have a lot to bring to the table, both literally and figuratively. They are packed with the vitamins and minerals which our bodies need in order to perform optimally, along with antioxidants which boast an array of heath-promoting properties. Our arrangements are all vegetarian including many choices that are also vegan and gluten-free—making them perfect for those with specific dietary restrictions. Produce is low in sodium—which is great for those trying to watch their blood pressure. For individuals worried about weight, vegetables and many fruits are high in taste and low in calories, making them an ideal snack. Additionally, since fruits are full of fiber (which makes you feel full), you tend to eat less. Fruits are a great source of H2O—since most are made up of over 50% water they allow us to combat dehydration!  Because they have natural sugars while also being low on the glycemic index, fruits provide a fantastic supply of longlasting energy. Fruits and veggies are also delicious and have been known to contribute to heightened sense of mood and well-being. OPTIMIZE YOUR PARTY NEEDS The Holiday season is a time when many of us gather with loved ones and traditionally eat a heavy meal—loading up on ham, mashed potatoes, breads, pies, and holiday cookies, washed down by a generous glass (or three) of eggnog. Show how much you care by offering those you care about a sweet treat that won’t weigh them down. Not only do our bouquets make beautiful centerpieces, they also double as lovely hostess gifts, and luscious (but, healthy!) desserts. Thanksgiving kicked off the holiday season; now that the holiday parties have begun, make sure the dessert table at each of your get togethers is outfitted with a delicious bouquet from FruitFlowers. We also give crudités a whole new look, delivering easy-to-grab veggies as a bountiful garden. A NOVEL APPROACH TO GIFT GIVING With the holiday season upon us, we all find ourselves searching for the perfect presents? Whether it’s something for mom and dad, the kids or close friends, you want to keep the people close to you healthy. The difficult-to-buy-for person in your life will be thrilled when they receive one of our arrangements;

No matter where you grew up, it was a special place and time, with plenty of memories, but with all the things that North Miami is doing to keep tradition alive - year round, there is simply not a more progressive area - anywhere, and they continue to show it - every Thanksgiving morning.

Blustein From Page 1A

hometown did what it has been doing for the past 28 Thanksgivings. If you love a parade with a local flair to it North Miami is the place to be every Thanksgiving. On the very streets that I grew up on, floats, bands and many local businesses join large crowds and political dignitaries for the hour long trip down 125th Street. Having been to every Winternational Thanksgiving Day Parade since its inception - 38 years ago - I have personally been responsible for bringing hundreds to North Miami every year - to join in what has been so special for so many generations. My glowing reports on this yearly tradition has brought in friends and former residents from as far away as New York City - and as close as the neighborhoods of North Miami. While this may not be


the same city I grew up in, I say thank goodness for progress and for so many community leaders who work year round to make this stream of high school bands and local businesses such a success. That is in addition to everything else that is done year round to make this the progressive community it has become. As I walked my way east down 125th Street, this parade has really grown. The numbers are always in the thousands, but the faces and sounds change from year to year, and that shows why the city that grew me up, continues to do the same for generations and generations of our future leaders. What the parade has become is a series of different block parties with friends and family members - capturing the moment on film and also with music. It's food, drink and dancing in anticipation of that traditional dinner later in the day. "I have been to three

of these with my children," said North Miami Beach resident Desiree Carter. "I don't think we've ever walked this far down. It's a whole new world down here, with music and people dancing on the curb. Like that kind of thing that spotlights cultures." Carter, who had the chance to walk and dance with the bands in the parade - as well as the music coming from the local DeeJay - had a great morning. She saw North Miami High's Pioneer marching band as well as others from the region. She also had the chance to see some of the newer businesses who have moved into the heart of the downtown area.

"It's great to see these communities come together," Carter pointed out. "This is a huge Haitian community, which is mixed with other Caribbean and South American nations. It's quite the melting pot." What the City of North Miami and Mayor Andre Pierre play on is a community that is heavily loaded with Haitians. The city has the largest population of Haitians anywhere in the world - outside of Port Au Prince. Last year, Haitian music sensation Wyclef Jean served as the Grand Marshal. But even though there is a huge Haitian population, the city is always proud of those who have made Special Offer To New Patients! Exam & Full Mouth X-rays

this city what it is today. As the floats wound down, and those who came out to see the parade, headed to their cars, another Winternational Parade came to an end, pushing thousands more off to a great holiday season. No matter where you grew up, it was a special place and time, with plenty of memories, but with all the things that North Miami

is doing to keep tradition alive - year round, there is simply not a more progressive area - anywhere, and they continue to show it every Thanksgiving morning. Happy Holidays from the city that prepared me for what life has had to deliver!

From Page 1A ––––––––––––––––––––– "Live racing means live people," said Mike Ramsur, with a smile. "This is a huge time of year when there are stakes races and great weather, which adds up to overflow crowds. I live here now, but used to be one of those who came down just for the season. I know exactly how it works, and with money being tight, this is a great advantage to Gulfstream and other local businesses." MORE THAN $1 MILLION IN IMPROVEMENTS Gulfstream Park's opening on Saturday, will showcase with more than $1 million in customer-friendly improvements, including a new 25-table restaurant overlooking the walking ring and 32 box suites overlooking the finish line. The cost of the off-season improvements exceeded $1 million. "Gulfstream Park and The Stronach Group are committed to finding ways to upgrade our state-of-the-art facility and making customer service a priority," said Gulfstream President Tim Ritvo. "Our customers wanted a unique dining experience near our walking ring that overlooks the fountain and the horses. The Fountain Club will provide such a location. Meanwhile the 32 boxes facing the track will each have six seats and will give our guests another unique location to spend the afternoon watching the races." Along with the new boxes and Fountain Club, Gulfstream has replaced the roofs on 12 barns on its backstretch. "Along with constantly updating our main building, it's important we continue updating our barn area," Ritvo added. "Horsemen both locally and nationally have been enthusiastic supporters and partners of Gulfstream Park. Our relationship with the horsemen is very important and one we want to continue growing." Southern Florida's premier horse racing facility, Gulfstream Park has been offering exciting thoroughbred action since 1939. Located in Hallandale Beach, fans flock to this winter horse racing landmark annually from around the world. Gulfstream Park has undergone a massive renovation project that is revolutionary in its scope and amenities.

Racetrack: The main track is 1 1/8 miles in circumference and the turf course is seven furlongs. The turf course is 170 feet wide, which allows the inner rail to be moved in and out, thereby reducing wear and tear, which in turn allows for more turf races to be carded. Highlights will again be the $1,000,000 Florida Derby (which has produced 21 Kentucky Derby winners, including Barbaro and Big Brown), the Sunshine Millions series, the $500,000 Donn Handicap, the Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap, the Fountain of Youth and Holy Bull stakes, and the Gulfstream Park, Pan Am and Orchid handicaps. The Sunshine Millions program, inaugurated in 2003, has been a hit with horsemen as well as fans. This innovative sixrace series, the brainchild of chairman Frank Stronach. All Six Races are run at Gulfstream Park, owned by The Stronach Group. Past winners include the popular Lost in the Fog as well as Musique Toujours, Secret Request and Red Warrior, each of whom paid winning mutuels of nearly/or more than $100.  Gulfstream kicks off its 90-day meet Dec. 1 with the $850,000 Claiming Crown. First race post is 12:45 p.m. CLAIMING CROWN GENERATES ENTHUSIASM The 14th edition of the $850,000 Claiming Crown promises to make Opening Day even more special occasion, judging

from the long and talented list of nominees for the seven-race series that will be renewed for the first time. The horsemen’s enthusiastic response to the event that offers rare lucrative opportunities for horses that have run in claiming races resulted in an aggregate of 232 nominations, including a number of horses nominated for more than one race. "The response and cooperation from horsemen for the Claiming Crown has been exceptional," said Gulfstream Park Racing Secretary Dan Bork. "Everyone is eager for Opening Day at Gulfstream." The quantity of nominations may only be surpassed in excellence by the quality of nominees, which includes several Grade 1-stakes performers. Willy Beamin, who captured the King’s Bishop (G1) at Saratoga in August, tops the list of 25 nominees for the $200,000 Jewel, the richest of the Claiming Crown races open to horses that have run for a claiming price of $35,000 or less. Claimed for $25,000 at Belmont Park in May, the 3-year-old colt won five straight races, culminating in the King’s Bishop score, for new owner James Riccio and trainer Richard Dutrow before finishing a close second in the Oklahoma Derby at Remington Park. Dutrow also nominated Associate, a former $25,000 claimer who finished third in the Bold Ruler (G3) at Belmont last time out and third in the Malibu (G1) at Santa Anita last December. Homeboychris, whom Dutrow saddled for a victory in the 2009 Champagne (G1) at Belmont, was nominated to the Jewel by new trainer Ron Moquett, who saddled him for a victory in a starter allowance at Churchill Downs last time out. Jewel nominee Second City, who ran in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile at Santa Anita in his last start, is owned by J. Paul Reddam, who campaigned 2012 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another. The $125,000 Emerald, a 1 1/16-mile turf race for horses that started for a claiming price of $35,000 or less, has also attracted Grade 1 talent. King David, who captured the Jamaica Handicap (G1) at Belmont Park in October less than a month after being claimed for $35,000, tops a list of 50 nominees for the Jewel. Trainer Michael Maker has saddled seven Claiming Crown winners, one fewer than leader Scott Lake. King Kreesa, a New York-bred stakes winner who broke his maiden under a $25,000 claiming tag, finished just a half-length behind King

s t n e c c A

David in the Jamaica and has been nominated for a possible rematch in the Emerald. The Maker-trained Juanita, a multiple Grade 2-stakes winner with Grade 1 experience, heads a list of 39 nominees for the $125,000 Tiara, a 1 1/16-mile turf race for fillies and mares that ran for a claiming price of $25,000 or less. The 4-year-old daughter of Mineshaft was claimed for $25,000 in 2011. Homeboykris, a Jewel nominee, was also made eligible for the $100,000 Rapid Transit, a sevenfurlong sprint for horses that started for a $16,000 claiming price or less. Ainsley, multiple stakesplaced filly who was claimed for $12,500 at Gulfstream in February, has been nominated for the Tiara, as well as the $100,000 Glass Slipper, a seven-furlong sprint for fillies and mares who raced for a claiming price no higher than $16,000. The $100,000 Express (a six-furlong sprint) and the $100,000 Iron Horse (slated for a 1 1/16miles), both for horses that started for a claiming price of $7500 or less, round out the seven races dedicated to the unsung heroes of the racing industry. The Claiming Crown, which was co-founded by the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders’ Association and the Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, has been hosted by four other tracks, Canterbury Downs, Parx, Ellis Park and Fair Grounds, since 1999.

FLORIDA DERBY The jewel of the racing meet will take place on Saturday, Mar. 30 which is the most exciting day during the Gulfstream Park racing season. As we get closer to the date, we will provide more information. COLLMUS INVITES FANS TO WATCH HIM CALL A RACE FOR CHARITY No one has a better view of Gulfstream Park and South Florida than track announcer Larry Collmus.

track announcer at numerous tracks, including Gulfstream and Monmouth. He has called the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes on NBC’s broadcasts for the past two years. He joined NBC’s broadcast of this year’s Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita, calling Royal Delta’s repeat triumph in the Ladies’ Classic and Fort Larned’s exciting narrow victory over Mucho Macho Man in the Classic. "I'm always grateful to do anything I can for such a worthy cause," Collmus said. "It's fun for racing fans and for me to do it. People get to experience a behind-thescenes look at how I prepare for a race and watch me call a race. I've gotten to meet people I normally wouldn't have gotten to meet. It's a fun experience for everyone."

For a donation per person, up to six fans can meet Larry and watch him call a race while taking in the view high atop his perch overlooking Gulfstream and out across Hollywood Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. All proceeds from donations will benefit the Thoroughbred Aftercare Program, founded by Gulfstream Chairman Mr. Frank Stronach in February of 2011 and devoted to the care, rehabilitation and retraining of Thoroughbreds no longer in competition. Mr. Stronach, who set up a similar program at Santa Anita, has been an industry leader and innovator in the care and retraining of retired Thoroughbreds. Mr. Stronach and his family set an industry precedent seven years ago by developing the first in-house retirement program, Adena Retirement, and they have supported numerous retirement programs throughout the years.

Don't let sore feet get you down. Let’s face it, after trying all the over the-counter remedies including jelly innersoles, bunion patches and felt plasters, your feet still hurt. Even worse is that now your knees, hips and back hurt also. It is time for some professional help. Your feet need an accurate diagnosis, not a onesize-fits-all over the counter device from the grocery store. You are a telephone call away (954-4568100) from a team of podiatrists who will examine your feet, correct the problems and advise how to keep them healthy.

EXPERT TRAINING All of the podiatrists of Diplomat Podiatry Associates are residency trained and well-schooled in their profession. Doctors Howard Fendell and Richard Rimler completed their surgical residencies with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine and Affiliated Hospitals. Dr. Sturm completed his residency with Gouverneur Treatment and Diagnostic Center, a part of the Bellveue Hospital system in New York City and is board certified in podiatric orthopedics and primary podiatric medicine. After 20 years together, Diplomat Podiatry Associates has close to 60 years of combined experience in diagnosing and treating foot problems. DIAGNOSTIC ULTRASOUND At Diplomat Podiatry Associates, 1931 East Hallandale Beach Blvd, you won't be cooling your heels while waiting for the all important diagnosis. It is a complete foot care center. Your feet get a thorough examination right on the premises. They even have an ultrasound machine,which probes the area of complaint with a

painless high-frequency sound pulse. "We have one here onsite. It is a big time-saver for the patient as far as not having to wait long for test results." says Dr. Howard Fendell, "The ultrasound machine's sound pulse displays the distances and intensities of its echoes on its screen. Therefore, it can detect things that an x-ray can't." According to Dr. Fendell, "It can help find things we don't see on a conventional x-ray, such as soft tissue problems. It helps us make an accurate diagnosis." Dr. Fendell adds, "The x-ray doesn't show much information about soft tissue problems, but with ultrasound, you can see inflammation and bursitis and tendonitis to compliment the x-ray findings."

ORTHOTICS Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts that control the motion of the foot. They are made from a variety of materials, most notably space age plastics, which are inserted into the shoes to aid foot function. Orthotics made from plastic can last from five to twenty years," says Dr. Richard Rimler. They are custom made from a cast of your feet so they fit perfectly. "Pain isn't a necessary requirement for orthotics. If you have bunions, or if your parents have bunions (or other foot deformities) orthotics can slow down the deforming process that will lead to bunion formation, thus avoiding surgery." "Orthotics are also beneficial for many different ail-

ments," says Dr. Rimler. "It can help your back, your hips, your knees and ankles because they realign the feet to provide optimal function." "One of the primary complaints that patients come to podiatrists for are heel and arch pain. Orthotics are instrumental, in the long term treatment of both of these conditions. Once the acute pain is controlled with injections, antiinflammatory medications, strapping, physical therapy and/or night splints, orthotics are then introduced to the treatment. Orthotics are used as long term treatment to address the underlying foot conditions causing the problems. In this way orthotics act as “eye-glasses for the feet.”

”PREVENTIVE CARE" Since prevention is the best medicine,"Dr. Sturm advises, “the way to keep your feet healthy is to visit a podiatrist regularly, so that small problems don’t become large ones. Too many people rely on self-treatment with over the-counter products. Sometimes those products can cause injuries. Certain corn removers off the shelf, for example,contain acid which can cause in-

fections, ulcerations,and burns.”Those with diabetes and poor circulation should be especially careful about checkups.“Diabetics are particularly prone to foot complications and infections. Regular visits can help them avoid problems." The doctors maintain a friendly, caring office. “ We treat our patients as if they were family,” Dr. Sturm said. “We care for everyone as we would care for our relatives."

Award winning smash hit ‘Stomp’ returns with some new surprises to Adrienne Arsht Center

"Stomp" is an explosive, sophisticated, provocative, sexy and an utterly unique show that appeals to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has earned numerous awards and has appeared on national television shows. The eight member troupe uses everything except conventional percussion instruments, using only matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps and much more in order to bring to the stage some of the most magnificent rhythms. Performers create a special kind of choreography similar to a gladiators hand to hand combat with trash-canlids. The oddest objects are: A janitor’s broom, a crumpled piece of paper and super sized laundry baskets, which produce the greatest sounds. “Stomp,” a global phenomenon for the past fourteen years, will always be about the different beats from the most unexpected sources. It’s easy to see why this show has so much staying power. The changes that can now be seen in the tour

of Stomp are the biggest since the late 1990's. A new piece, “Paint Cans” came about out of the "Boxes” routine in the Las Vegas show and “Donuts” that uses huge tractor tire inner tubes, worn around the waist on a bungee cord. For many years, the creators looked for the equivalent of the Latin percussion instrument, the guiro, a gourd-shaped open-ended instrument, rubbed by wooden sticks to create a sound which has been accomplished. See what all the noise is about at the Arsht Center from December 4th to December 9th, 2012. Evenings are Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. with Matinees on both Saturday and Sun-

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

INTRODUCING THE WELLCO HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER AVOID SURGERY AND END PAIN 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 energy 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.


Avoid Pain and Joint Replacement Surgery With Revolutionary Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Treatment - No Drugs, No Surgery, No Pain Patient Benefits: • Greatly Speed the healing process • Reduce or eradicate Chronic and Acute Pain • Chronic and Acute Low Back, Hip, Knee and Neck Pain or deficiencies • Avoid Joint Replacement Surgery • Orthopedic Injuries • Fibromyalgia • Myofascial Pain • Tendon and Ligament repair • Reduces swelling and inflammation • Releases muscle trigger points • Improves soft tissue regeneration Electro Muscle Stimulation changes muscle tissue, softens or eradicates scar tissue, and increases circulation with the effect of removing long stored waste products and increasing cellular metabolism. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology uses micro impulses, which induce neuropeptides secretion by primarily C nerve fibers that have profound and wideranging effects, triggering complex regulative chains and cascades. Multiple biochemical pathways utilizing many types of neuro-mediators, hormones, and cytokines are involved. Although peptide half-life in body fluids is relatively short, other mediators in the cascades survive for many hours. Some regulatory peptides act on genomic activity to alter gene expression and change biochemical synthesis. Our device’s electrical signals can reprogram tissues locked into chronic vegetative and dysfunctional states by inducing bolus synthesis of regulatory peptides (RP). On a neurological level, widely dispersed un-meylienated C-fibers compromising 85 percent of all nerve fibers are effected locally by the Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology signal. C-fibers are responsible for slow diffuse pain signaling and are also neuro-secretory. Neuropeptides (NPs) are secreted into the surrounding tissue milieu by their exocytosis through vesicle membrane fusion with the cell membrane similar to neuro-transmitter secretion. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology impulses also are relayed through afferent neural pathways to the CNS and give rise to various 1) Segmental spinal reflexes by efferent signals sent from the cord to organs associated with that segment or back to the local tissue receiving the impulse. 2) Systemic reactions such as endorphin induction by efferent signals descending from the cortical and subcortical areas of the brain i.e. pain reduction. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology impulses have a direct effect on blood perfusion. Clinically observable and well-defined increases in tissue perfusion at the treated areas are due to neuropeptide-induced vasodilatation, particularly Substance P. A combination of device-induced axon reflexes also releases other vaso-active substances such as kinins, prostaglandins, cytokines, and nitric oxide. The end result is that blood flow to a treated area is significantly increased. Other neuropeptides and endocrine secretions released by device’s impulses mediate inflammation. Complement fixation and tissue injuries due to immune aggression are suppressed, and cellular immunity is enhanced by macrophage proliferation, activation, chemotaxis, and clearance of extracellular debris. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology has redefined existing technology with novel waveforms, unique circuitry, and clean signaling. Signaling is focused and intensified for narrow applications or is expanded with unique signaling combinations and frequency ranges for increased therapeutic flexibility. Compared with the earlier Russian electro-stimulation devices, The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology generates clean and more precisely defined wave forms and possesses both newer (patent pending) settings that expand clinical versatility and vastly improved operational reliability. The Pro Bio-feedback technology is proven to be convenient, safe, and effective and has been cleared by the FDA and other governing bodies for pain relief.

Dr. OZ introduces a breakthrough way to heal pain using Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields. Also known as PEMF therapy, this method of healing has been widely used in Switzerland for over 15 years. It’s a technology that had been developed for the Russian Space program to help prohibit the bone loss that the cosmonauts suffered when they were in space and away from the earths magnetic fields.

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS ATHLETE TESTIMONIALS The Researched Benefits of PEMF Helps With All Forms of Pain.

From hydrotherapy to massage, home therapies can help ease arthritis pain

(BPT) - About one out of every five American adults has been diagnosed with arthritis, and it is the most common cause of disability in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The pain and stiffness caused by arthritis - and the high cost of arthritis medications - prompt many people to seek effective home therapies. While you should always work with your doctor to manage your arthritis, you can also do a lot at home to help minimize symptoms. Home remedies like hydrotherapy, massage and simple exercise have been shown to help reduce the pain and inflammation asso-

ciated with multiple forms of arthritis. Here are some common home therapies to discuss with your health care provider: Massage - Recent studies indicate that massage can help people with arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation reports on its website Simple massage of painful joints such as in the hands, elbows or knees, may help your arthritis pain. You don't need to pay for a professional massage to find relief. Talk to your health care provider for simple tips on self-massage. Besides pain relief, massage offers another benefit that may be particularly helpful to people living with chronic

Keeping the Peace

Every holiday season I get a few calls regarding the holidays and family get-togethers. For some people, holiday dinners are a dreaded event, particularly for those who may not be financially or emotionally doing so well. Sometimes relatives and friends may say the wrong thing, and past conflicts can re-surface. Those that are closest to us can hurt us the most......So with this in mind, I'd like to offer a few guidelines which may help keep the peace in what should be a joyous occasion.

pain: relaxation. Hydrotherapy - Soaking in warm water has been a viable home therapy for muscle and joint aches for centuries. Your arthritis may also cause mobility issues, making you wary about climbing in and out of a traditional soaking tub. A walk-in tub may be a viable alternative. Premier Care in Bathing, makers of walk-in tubs, offers its Hydrovescent Therapy system designed to help ease aches and pains but with gentler water

motion than you would find in a traditional jetted tub. The company has earned the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use commendation for its easy-to-enter tubs that feature extra-wide, low-level entry, left or right-hand door openings, contoured and slipresistant seats and backrests, and leak-free design. Remember to consult your doctor before beginning any home therapy, as hydrotherapy may not be appropriate for all types

of arthritis or with other health conditions. Lifestyle - As important as it is to work with your doctor to manage your arthritis, self-management is also essential. Lifestyle habits such as staying active and watching your weight can help reduce the pain of arthritis and improve function, according to the CDC. Engage in at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise at least five days a week; it's OK to break that time into 10-minute intervals, the CDC says. Carrying excess weight can make your arthritis worse, and losing just 11 pounds can improve mobility and reduce pain. It's im-

portant to manage your weight as part of your overall arthritis treatment. The CDC estimates that the number of people with arthritis will increase to 67 million by 2030. As more people struggle with arthritis' debilitating effects, simple, cost-effective home therapies may help millions more find relief.

MATTRESS SETS PT) - Dry eye affects up to 40 million Americans, has many causes, and a variety of symptoms. Those who suffer from dry eye know one thing: that it can be very uncomfortable. Common dry eye symptoms include scratchiness or grittiness, the feeling of a foreign particle in the eye, redness and even excessive reflex watering. Attacking the cause vs. the symptoms The underlying factor in dry eye syndrome is inflammation. Reducing inflammation on the surface of the eye and regulating the glands that produce tears are essential to effectively managing dry eye. Artificial tears and rewetting drops may offer temporary relief, but this only treats the symptom. How the tear film affects dry eye The tear film has three layers: a water layer, an oil layer and a mucous layer. The mucous layer is located on the eye surface and provides natural lubrication. The next layer is the water layer, ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– EYE, Page 3C

Fatigue? Weakness? Headache? What to Know About Iron Deficiency

(NewsUSA) - Iron deficiency, according to the World Health Organization, is the number-one nutrition disorder in the world -- affecting approxi-

mately 7.8 million women in the U.S. The most common symptoms of iron deficiency are fatigue, weakness, headaches and irritability.

Iron deficiency is more common among women (especially those of childbearing age), athletes, vegetarians and seniors. Before seeking treatment


From Page 2C ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– from evaporating too quickly. When any or all of the layers are not functioning correctly, the tears may become unstable or the tears may evaporate too quickly, resulting in dry eye. Common causes of dry eye During winter months, many experience dry eye as humidity levels drop and home heating systems are activated resulting in drier air. This often causes tears to evaporate more quickly. Other leading causes of dry eye include aqueous gland dysfunction. In this situation, tear-producing glands do not produce enough tear volume, or there is less-than-optimal tear composition. Contact lens wearers are particularly susceptible to dry eye as soft lens materials require additional lubrication and a balanced tear film is vital to successful lens wearing. In many cases, medicated eye drops may exacerbate dry eye in contact lens wearers. It is estimated that up to half of contact lens wearers discontinue use due to discomfort often caused by dry eye. Relieving dry eye Many doctors and patients reach for an eye drop to provide immediate relief of dry eye. Unfortunately, that immediate relief is temporary. Much has been written about Omega-3s in recent years including its use as an effective treatment of dry eye. As a natural anti-inflammatory, Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that support healthy tear production and keep eyes moisturized. In addition to Omega-3s, other anti-inflammatory ingredients like vitamins A, D3, E, turmeric extract, green tea, and evening primrose oil, can significantly accelerate the time it takes to feel dry eye relief. Many eye care professionals are recommending oral anti-inflammatories as a first step to reduce ocular surface inflammation and regulate gland function without the unwanted side effects noted with topical agents. Managing dry eye Leading eye care professionals agree that dry eye is an ongoing issue that cannot be cured, but can be effectively managed. Oral dry eye vitamins from brands like EyePromise feature all natural ingredients, and provide dry eye relief from the inside by reducing inflammation and regulating healthy tear production. Get a jump on dry eye season this winter Consult with your eye doctor about an exam to determine the type of dry eye you may have, and for more information on oral anti-inflammatory eye vitamins.

you should be properly diagnosed by your healthcare professional for an iron deficiency. However, once diagnosed, there are ways to help treat and reduce your deficiency. Increasing iron intake can be as easy as making adjustments to your diet. There are several foods that contain a large amount of iron and can help restore the body's iron level. Some of these foods are: * Red meat, fish and poultry * Egg yolk * Dark, leafy greens * Beans, lentils, chick peas and soy beans

* Dried fruit An iron-friendly diet should, in addition, consist of foods high in vitamin C, such as orange juice and tomatoes. While maintaining a well-balanced diet can help supply the body with iron, sometimes it isn't enough. In cases such as these, an iron supplement is usually recommended. However, up to 47 percent of people who take iron supplements experience one or more side effects, such as nausea or constipation. In some cases, it is bad enough to make them stop their iron treatment altogether.

Often times, people are unaware that there are different forms of iron that may work better for their body's individual needs. Someone who tolerates iron supplements well might require a different form of iron than someone who often experiences side effects from their oral iron therapy. For those with a sensitive system, there are alternative supplements, like Feosol Complete, that provide the body with iron while minimizing common intestinal side effects such as nausea or constipation ( – CLASSIFIED – 954-458-0635 – South Florida Sun-Times /Thursday, November 29, 2012 Page 5C

Mayor Joy Cooper, Vice Mayor Alexander Lewy and Commissioner Anthony Sanders welcomes Bill Julian and Michele Lazarow

Hallandale Beach City Commissioners took the oath of office and were assigned seats Monday, Nov. 19, fulfilling a City Charter change approved by voters in the Tuesday, Nov. 6, general election. Voters overwhelmingly supported a City Charter change to assign seats numbers and require future candidates to declare

for a specific seat. Once seated, the new board unanimously elected Commissioner Alexander Lewy as Vice Mayor. Three City Commissioners and Mayor Joy Cooper took the oath of office at the special meeting. Reelected City Commissioner Anthony Sanders was assigned seat 1; new

City Commissioner William “Bill” Julian was assigned seat 3, and new City Commissioner Michele Lazarow was assigned seat 4. The seat held by Commissioner Alexander Lewy was not up for re-election. Vice Mayor Lewy was assigned seat 2. The Mayor’s Office does not have a seat designation.

Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue leads helping hand after Hurricane Sandy

Three Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue staff spent about three weeks in Long Beach, N.Y., tending to the medical needs of victims of Hurricane Sandy. The firefighter/paramedics were part of the FL-5 DMAT team sent to help the victims in areas where hospitals were closed by the hurricane. The Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT) included 40 members from throughout South Florida. Assigned to a field hospital set up on a soccer field in Long Beach, were, from left, Firefighter/Paramedic Francisco Deuringer, Division Chief Mark Ellis, and Firefighter/Paramedic Jennifer Scheiblich. The team returned home last weekend. (Photo courtesy Division Chief Mark Ellis)

All City Commission seats and the Mayor’s Office are fouryear terms. Commission seats 1 and 2 have two years remaining on their offices and will be up for election in 2014. Commission seats 3 and 4, and the Mayor’s office will be contested in 2016.

The Hallandale Beach electorate supported the City Charter change 6,090 to 3,844, to modify the way City Commissioners run for office and are elected. The change requires commissioners to declare for a specific seat.

Candidates may only run for one seat. In the past, City Commission candidates would run at-large for all open seats, and the highest vote getters would be seated. All City Commission seats and the Mayor’s Of-

fice are four-year terms. Commission seats 1 and 2 have two years remaining on their offices and will be up for election in 2014. Commission seats 3 and 4, and the Mayor’s office will be contested in 2016.

HOLIDAY LIGHTS City will light up the holiday season at the annual Holiday Celebration, Nov. 30

Hallandale Beach will light up the holiday season at the annual Holiday Celebration, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday night, Nov. 30, at 1750 East Hallandale Beach Boulevard. The Holiday Celebration lights are setup along the median. The event will include carnival-style amusement rides, music and dance performances, plenty of food and a visit from Santa Claus.

Delta Psychological Group: Facilitating change in our community through mental health services

Is It Time For a Change? How Therapy Works and How to Know When We Need It By Jodi Brazlavsky, LCSW - South Florida Sun Times

Many of us struggle day to day with something that has knocked us off balance. For some, the issues are specific. For others, it may be difficult to pinpoint the cause of our distress. One thing is certain. Each of us has dealt with or will deal with uncertainty and difficult times during our lives. The purpose of therapy is well-defined. The relationship between therapist and client is different from our relationships with family or friends. The therapeutic alliance is one that is marked with empathy and unconditional positive regard. Even though clients present with different issues in treatment, ironically, I am often asked one common question, “Can you help me?” With a strong therapeutic relationship notable gains can be achieved. Therapeutic outcomes can never be predetermined, but as a clinician I see myself as a catalyst for change. Therapy can be hard work. The process can help us to answer questions we have about our lives and feelings: Have we been honest with our spouse? Have we made the right decisions for our children? Have we enabled family members to manipulate or to

take advantage of us? It forces us to look inward, but with the help of an objective eye and nonjudgmental support, and this process of self-exploration can be productive and enlightening. The therapeutic process assists us in taking a closer look into our individuality, at our own selfworth. This helps us in getting our needs met. Therapy promotes empowerment, cultivates strengths and helps to develop better coping skills. But how exactly does this happen? The idea of empowerment and how it relates to the therapeutic process is important for my clients to understand. It means that I encourage individuals that I work with to develop skills that help them to take on new perspectives, thereby allowing them to manage obstacles in their lives. Whether an individual is dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, divorce, or substance abuse, one thing remains the same: We are not powerless in our relationships, feelings and/or decisions. We all have the ability to change and therapy can be a great way to facilitate this process. With the holidays coming upon us and in the face of the New Year we can create inner peace with the idea that our goals are possible.
