THE ‘SEASON’ BEGINS Larry Blustein

As most of you know if you have read my columns throughout the years, I support anything local, and when it comes to thoroughbred racing at Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino, that is certainly my weakness. Like a child eagerly awaiting the first day of school, last Saturday, Dec. 1, was a date that I had circled for months, especially when it comes to

clearing my crazy schedule. There is something about opening day at Gulfstream Park that gets me excited. Like that first pitch of the new baseball season, the sounds of the horses racing around the track and hearing the fans cheer, is what this has always been about for me. I am not one of those year-round gamblers who will bet on anything. I am more of a racing fan. Someone who will be

brought in by large crowds and people having fun. That is where I stand, along the railing, with cold drink in hand and the warm late fall sun shining down on my white legs. Gulfstream, like Mardi Gras Racing and Casino in Hallandale Beach is a real getaway. A large facility where money is being made and fun is had by all. It is really a place where it costs –––––––––––––––––––– BLUSTEIN, Page 11A

Last Saturday opened yet another racing season at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach. This year, many area businesses are banking on the success of the fabled facility.

Gulfstream Park’s live racing ushers in optimism for the winter/spring months

Purchasing Department getting the most our of our tax dollars

HALLANDALE BEACH - The new budget year began in October and over the course of October and November the city has continued to execute purchase agreements and partnerships with many agencies. Cities are uniquely qualified to evaluate the cost of goods through direct purchasing, or in what we call a piggyback purchase. Government Purchasing Directors have set up a network of corporate purchasing that allows smaller agencies like the City of Hallandale Beach to take advantage of negotiated prices that have already gone through the required state bidding process. This availability of piggybacking not only saves money on the cost of items, but also saves the city money by not having to expend staff resources and money by going through a lengthy bidding process. We have an excellent General Services Department with a staff of three under the leadership of Director Andre Lues. Over the past two months they have evaluated and helped to present purchase items including chemicals for water treatment, vehicle rental services, crossing guard services, software contracts, diesel fuel and many other items for day-to-day operations of our community. BUDGET KICKOFF

Mayor Joy Cooper FOR 2013-14 The city's fiscal year begins in October and the budget cycle begins in January. Staff’s budget kickoff meeting was held this week. City Manager Crichton held a meeting with every Department Director and key Staff within each department that has established their business plan for the upcoming fiscal year. Two years ago City Manager Antonio and the City Commission began to reevaluate and fine tune our strategic plan and implement strategic policy and goals. Staff, in turn, established their sets of goals and then strategic implementation plans through the budget process. This year City Manager Crichton conducted an internal City Staff survey through a third-party management consulting firm to provide anonymous input from every single employee and one on one interviews with the commission of their views on strengths and weaknesses of the organization. Last week the City Manager and Directors

held a daylong retreat evaluating the survey results and working with the consultant to utilize the results as a tool for improvement to operations and efficiencies. The information will also be used as a tool for budgeting effectively. CITY TIGHTENS CODE ON COMMERCIAL VEHICLE PARKING As a result of old codes which required one spot per housing unit in a built out city like Hallandale Beach our on-street parking is at a premium. Over the past years the City established a Parking Committee to work collectively with residents and community stakeholders to increase onstreet parking in many areas. Regretfully, individuals and companies have been utilizing valuable on-street parking spaces to park and store commercial vehicles and trailers over night. The City has adopted changes to our code that will make it easier for Hallandale Police Department to ticket and tow illegally parked vehicles. Staff is in the process of ensuring that all the proper signage and notifications are put in place so vehicles can be automatically towed if they are in violation. COMMISSION AMENDS PROTOCOL MANUAL The City of Hallandale Beach took action to

extensively review the City Protocol Manual over five years ago. The City hired special counsel, Bruce Rogow, to systematically review the old protocols and work with the City Commission and City Staff towards creating an updated Protocol Manual and new Ethics Manual. During that time period many cities did not have formal ethic codes and simply followed the state laws. The Code of Ethics adopted was for both the City Commission and City employees. Over the course of the past years, the City Commission has adopted motions that have changed protocols, but the manual had not been updated. The protocol was changed on a 3-1 vote (Cooper No) to allow Staff to go directly to the City Commission and bypass their Directors. Another change included the ability for Commissioners to text and email during the time they are on the dais at meetings. (Cooper and Ross No). These changes were written in along with changes to fit our newly adopted meeting format. Other language changes were made to include references to the new Broward County Code of Ethics. REACH OUT AND HELP THE NEEDY THIS HOLIDAY! During this holiday season there are so many ways in which you can help needy

residents right here in our community. We have two main food pantries in our small city that provide food to many deserving families, The Austin Hepburn Center and the Hallandale Food Pantry. They gladly welcome donations. Think about doing a food drive in your condominium or simply stopping by their locations and dropping off nonperishable items. For information on the Hepburn Center you can contact 954-4571460 and the Hallandale Food Pantry run by Mr. Snow can be contacted at 954-4550615. The Hallandale Police Athletic League always hosts an annual “Shop with a Cop” Day. WalMart is a great partner in this event but the Police Department is always in need of financial donations to help offset the costs of breakfast and funding for many young children. They are actually conducting a fundraiser December 8 to raise money for the day of shopping. For information you can contact our Police Department at 954-457-1400.

Also Hallandale Beach-Aventura Rotary Club annually sponsors the Santa Claus Sled that travels throughout our community giving away gift bags. If you want to get involved in the fun, donate funds, or donate goodies, I encourage you to visit the Hallandale Beach Rotary Club that meets every Wednesday 12 pm at Brio Tuscan Grill located in the Village of Gulfstream Park. It is a great club and new members are always welcome. This Sunday at Mardi Gras Racetrack the Toy Run in the Sun will be taking place. Motorcycles will be lining up starting 7:30 AM with a start time of 9:30 PM. Even if you're not hopping on a bike I encourage everyone to stop by this event. It is truly an entertaining and great cause. As always please feel free to contact me at any time with your questions and concerns at my office 954-457-1318 or cell/text 954-632-5700 or e-mail me at www.MayorJoyCooper.c om

Dentistry is a necessity - not a luxury


From Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––– when your mouth is healthy, chances are your overall health is good, too. On the other hand, if you have poor oral health, you may have other health problems. Research also shows that good oral health may actually prevent certain diseases from occurring.

GUM DISEASE AND HEALTH COMPLICATIONS According to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a relationship between gum (periodontal) disease and health complications such as a stroke and heart disease. Women with gum disease also show higher incidences of pre-term, low birth-weight babies. Other research shows that more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases (diseases involving many organs or the whole body) have oral manifestations, including swollen gums, mouth ulcers, dry mouth and excessive gum problems. Such diseases include: • Diabetes • Leukemia • Oral cancer • Pancreatic cancer • Heart disease • Kidney disease Since most people have regular oral examinations, their dentist may be the first health care provider

to diagnose a health problem in its early stages.

POOR ORAL HEALTH CAN LEAD TO PROBLEMS If you don't take care of your teeth and gums, your poor oral hygiene can actually lead to other health problems, including: • Oral and facial pain.

loss. Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, and advanced gum disease affect more than 75 percent of the U.S. population. • Problems with the heart and other major organs. Mouth infections can affect major organs. For example, the heart and heart valves can become inflamed by bacterial endocarditis, a condition that affects people with heart disease or anyone with damaged heart tissue. Digestion problems. Digestion begins with physical and chemical processes in the mouth, and problems here can lead to intestinal failure, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive disorders.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? After understanding potential oral manifestations it is essential to learn the general guidelines promoted by the American Dental Association as a preventative measure

associated with good oral health. 1. Brushing your teeth Good brushing should take a minimum of two minutes and should involve brushing in a circular motion, working your way from one side of the mouth to the another, keeping in mind to pay attention to certain neglected areas such as the very back teeth and your tongue. Dentists recommend using soft bristle brushes and toothpaste that contain fluoride. 2. Floss regularly It is recommended that individuals floss on a regular basis after meals and before brushing their teeth. The proper way to floss is to push the floss gently between your teeth to the gum to loosen debris your toothbrush cannot reach. When you begin flossing, you may experience light bleeding which will fade once your gums get used to the flossing process. 3. Mouthwash

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Using a mouthwash that contains fluoride at least twice a day is a good preventative measure that kills bacteria responsible for the plaque that causes cavities and gum disease. 4. Dental visits Regular dental visits about every six months are crucial to early identification of potential problems that could develop into more serious problems. One can never underestimate the importance of proper dental care and tooth brushing for good health. Truly poor dental care can lead to lost teeth or poor dentition, which may make it difficult to eat. That leads to poor nutrition. Mediocre dental care can lead to plaque. Plaque irritates the gum to the

point that it bleeds. This allows microscopic amounts of bacteria to enter the bloodstream. The presence of plaque and tooth decay has been noted to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and make diabetes more difficult to control. Good dental care can improve your health. Tips to avoid dental problems include brushing your teeth three times a day, eat foods that contain less sugar, and avoid or drink fewer soft drinks and carbonated beverages. See your dentist yearly. Have your teeth cleaned by the hygienist twice a year. ”Call us Today to make your appointment” (954) 456-1939.

PAWS on the Green Tees up Another Success

FORT LAUDERDALE - PAWS, an auxiliary for the Humane Society of Broward County, held their annual golf tournament on November 5th and 6th at Grande Oaks Golf Club. “PAWS on the Green Ladies Invitational Golf Tournament,” now in its 14th year, raised more than $150,000 for the shelter’s programs and services. Event Chairs Pamela Baynes and Ann Marie Moon, and Honorary Chairs Marti Huizenga and Ursula Scott, created a country theme entitled “Kick up Your Heels,” and the 116 players participating did just that!  The festivities kicked off with a pre-tournament Cowgirls and Karaoke cocktail party at the home of Marti and Wayne Huizenga.  Tournament players dressed in casual western attire enjoyed a fun evening which included karaoke and a roping cowboy who demonstrated lasso tricks.  Guests could purchase custom cowgirl hats by Barbi Brunton and jewelry from Pamela Huizenga Jewelry, with a portion of the proceeds going to the HSBC. During the tournament there were several highlights in addition to the two days of golf. A silent auction was offered both days, and a prize drawing was held for an 18kt white gold paw print pendant featuring 1.50 carats of black and white diamonds donated by J.R. Dunn Jewelers, which was won by Sheryl Hartley.  J.R. Dunn Jewelers also offered jewelry for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the animals.  Another exciting addition was golf trickster Dan Boever, who entertained the guests with his unique and amazing golf stunts.  Following this unique presentation was a live auction, which on its own raised $42,000!  The Humane Society of Broward County is a private, non-profit organization supported by donations from companies and people who want to help us help the homeless animals. The shelter has only one location and is not affiliated with any national or local organization with a similar name.

Sunny Isles - You saw an ad for Global Jewelry Buying House and wanted to learn more before you trusted your jewelry to them.

Not knowing what to Global Jewelry expect, you brought only a couple of Buying House. pieces of unwanted jewelry and a silver They have been service, no longer in doing business use.

Danny took out a purchase form, wrote your name and date on the form and after opening up his jewelers light, asked to see what you had brought. He examined your two pieces of jewelry and wrote a value on the form next to a description and then looked at your silver and assessed its value. At that point, you had a decision to make...sell it now or take your copy of the purchase form to show your wife. You decided the price was certainly fair and sold your jewelry for cash. You took your silver service back home to make sure your wife agreed with the sale and showed her the purchase form with the price that was offered. Your wife agreed it was a good price so tomorrow you will take it back, along with the purchase order, and be given the price listed.

you little for hours of entertainment. The measure of any business is not how busy they can stay for a few months, but pretty much throughout the entire year. Gulfstream has been trying to do that for years. This is a place that a lot of money has been thrown in to make it that multi-use destination we had all talked about years ago. But things may not be moving fast enough! The effort being put in by Gulfstream to attract new visitors is essential. In this economy, we have no other choice. There has to be a lot of "candycoating" to bring non-racing fans into the facility. That is a given, and while some of the anchor restaurants and high-end businesses continue to get by, it's a matter of time where corporate giants will be tired of losing money. You cannot blame them. The last thing anyone imagined was to have revolving flow of businesses - coming in and out of Gulfstream. That sort of trial and error will not be beneficial. What many envisioned Gulfstream to be one day, when this project was approved, was to have racing, shopping, dining and entertainment all going on at once - creating 50,000 people at the venue at one time. While I see that there are plans made for many upgrades on the property, it is always best to ask customers who actually spend the money what is needed. Competing for the entertainment dollar is what this is all about, and having the chance to be at opening day, actually speaking with those who will continue to spend money at the facility, I found out some great information. Much I figured out on my own. Chris and Mary Treusdale come from Indiana every other year. They love racing and the beaches. While opening day is always exciting, the opportunity to walk around and take in the many things going on at the facility is also important. Spending four hours just watching races get a bit old.

"It is sort of a mixed message kind of thing," Mary smiled. "Everything is free or little cost at the track itself, but the shops and restaurants are pretty high. They need something like Hooters to balance what they have." Indeed, someone from over a thousand miles away recognizes what I've been saying for a long time. Cheaper food and drink will always drive crowds in - and not send them someplace else. The theme of low cost and FREE that Gulfstream live racing has needs to be throughout the park. It is always great to have high end businesses at a facility like this. But in this economy, and with the racing crowd and tourists in mind, having a place like Hooters would be a huge draw - year round. Cadillac Ranch bar/restaurant was poorly promoted and nobody knew that it existed if they didn't drive in the back of the facility. The signage sucks. You have no clue that many things on the property are there if they aren't in front. Another of the things that many have talked about is the lack of a hotel and pool on the facility. That, and getting full casino gaming, are what keeps this from being that resort destination. I am not privy to the behind the doors talk, but with the land they have on the southeast portion of the property, that sits empty and unappealing every day, you would think that some large hotelier would have stepped up already. "There are so many other places in Southern Florida to go and have fun," Mark Quinn of Boston said. "You have to have something for every member of the family. We have kids, they are not racing fans, so what do you have to keep their interest?" Quinn also admits that if there was a hotel on property, it would give it more of a family appeal as well. OPENING DAY Even though I was sidetracked by the reality of this economy, and what has to be done to fill the needs of the visitors and not some decision maker who has no

620 NE 8 Street, Hallandale Beach Just East of US-1 Between Ocean’s 11 & Pizza Hut



feel for the reality of the situation, I have to get back to opening day where the weather was great and the racing topnotch. The Gulfstream racing experience is simply like none other. It is where seasoned players stand next to youngsters, forming that impression for the first time. The aromas of popcorn and hotdogs mixing with cigar smoke. It's that first look at a racing form or program, where people try to explain what the times and numbers mean. It's that thrill of standing along the railing and seeing that dirt being kicked up by those magnificent animals. It's the thrill that you get when your number(s) comes in. The experience of being around the track has been taken to another level - with animation, food and drink specials and music now filling in the gaps between racing times. This is not the thoroughbred racing my father introduced me to. What my dad taught us about does not exist anymore. Racing purists have given way to fans, but what the heck, it's a lot of fun. I had a long talk with my neighbor last week who has always promised me that he would go to Gulfstream - for a stakes race - for Florida Derby, but never has. He finally told me that he was intimidated to go because he knew very little about how to bet. I assured him that it's not like it used to be. People actually spend the time to talk with you and explain.

City of Miami Beach Fire Rescue employees grow out full mustaches for 'Movember' donations raised, presented to Mount Sinai Medical Center

MIAMI BEACH - The employees of the City of Miami Beach Fire Rescue Department are fighting more than just flames these days. By growing out their mustaches, they were able to raise more than $2,000 for Mount Sinai Medical Center. The fundraising campaign was for “Movember” an initiative where men grew out their mustaches during the month of November to help raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular

cancer. “It is absolutely spectacular to think that the people we work with every day dealing with emergencies are now working with us on the prevention of illnesses such as cancer,” said Mount Sinai President and CEO, Steve Sonenreich. To make the check presentation, approximately 30 City of Miami Beach Fire Rescue employees arrived to Mount Sinai on fire trucks, sporting full mustaches and light blue T-shirts, the color

The men ended the month with one final fundraising initiative at Finnegan’s on Ocean Drive where they accepted donations to shave off their mustaches. City of Miami Beach Fire Chief, Javier Otero and Assistant Chief, Jorge Sanabria, took it one step further and agreed to shave their entire

heads for the cause. All proceeds from this event were also donated to Mount Sinai.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in men. The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be over 241,000 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States this year alone.

Quick tips for pulling together a holiday potluck: Divide, conquer and enjoy (BPT) - - When your holiday-dinner guest list keeps growing year after year, it may be time to share the cooking. A potluck is a great way to share the load, and with just a little advance planning you can avoid ending up with 12 green bean casseroles on the dinner table. "Don't be shy about assigning food categories to your guests," says Ginny Bean, founder and publisher of Ginny's catalog and"This eliminates the guesswork for them, too." Bean suggests you

start planning four to six weeks out, and following these simple tips. * Don't overlook the non-cooks. Include categories such as beverages and paper products, or ask noncooks to bring flowers, candles or other items to decorate the table. Those who want to help but need something easy to do can do some of the shopping for you. * Double up. Ask at least two of the guests to make different salads, two to make different potato dishes, two people to bring different

green vegetables, and two to bring pies. Plan on making the turkey, stuffing and gravy yourself. * Make sure someone brings kid food. There's nothing worse than having kids reject all the food at the table. Make sure there's ice cream or another dessert that appeals to kids, some sparkling apple juice for a special toast, and kid-friendly items like mac and cheese or yams with marshmallows. * Pick your battles. If someone really wants to bring a certain dish that you don't par-

How to simplify holiday gift giving

(BPT) - Overwhelmed by your holiday shopping list and short on time? Not to worry - here are a few tips to cut costs, stay organized and still buy presents that your friends and family will love. 1. Stick to a budget. Arrive at the dollar amount at which you feel comfortable spending and stick with it. Then, decide on cost ranges that you would pay for those on your list. Setting limits on how much you can spend per person will streamline the overall process of holiday shopping. 2. Use a gift selection website that does the picking for you. The Timex Gift Finder website, for example, lets you discover which watch styles your loved ones will crave most after you answer five short questions about their personalities. You'll also receive a coupon for $10 off two of these watches at Walmart or Target. To try the Timex Gift Finder yourself, visit 3. Be prepared with back-up gift cards. What if your cousin-in-law shows up to your shindig with a cute makeup set for you, but you have nothing for her? Don't let that happen by keeping a stock of extra gift cards. Walmart and Target offer a wide variety of them, so you don't have to drive from store to store. 4. Bake simple homemade treats. It's not the cost of the present that counts; it's the thought that matters. Show off your culinary skills with some hearthealthy oatmeal cookies or your delectable apple pie. If you need creative ideas, search Pinterest for mouth-watering inspiration. 5. Give to a worthwhile cause. Make a donation in the name of that friend or family member who has everything. Think about the recipient's philanthropic interests rather than just contributing to a cause that you support. Write a thoughtful card explaining what inspired you to choose this gift for an added touch. Follow these easy tips and you'll be sure to experience stress-free holiday gifting.

ticularly want, let them bring it anyway. You never know which dish might turn into a family tradition. * Assess your appliance needs. Ask guests to let you know ahead of time if they'll need refrigerator, oven or range-top space. The added capacity of countertop ovens and microwaves can be a godsend for big holiday meals. Plan a menu with some dishes that can be served at room temperature so you don't have too many dishes that need to be kept hot. * Be prepared with extra serving plates, bowls and

spoons. Somebody's bound to forget something. Also remind guests to label their serving dishes and utensils. Most regular potluck participants can tell tales about losing the lid to a favorite plastic bowl or discovering that the only casserole dish left on the table was not the one they brought. * Don't attempt to serve all the food from one table. Place desserts on a table separate from main dishes and side dishes. Locate beverages in another area. For the most convenient self-service, arrange the buffet so

diners can serve themselves from both sides of the table. Lay out the table in logical order: plates at one end of the table for guests to pick up and load with food, and utensils tucked inside napkins at the other end to grab once their plates are full. * Strike while the iron's hot (and guests are in a festive mood). Before everyone leaves, set up the planning committee and solicit suggestions for next year. To request a copy of Ginny's catalog, log on to or call (800) 487-9024.

MOSAIC THEATRE PRESENTS AWARD WINNINGPLAYWRIGHT CONOR McPHERSON’S PLAY “THE BIRDS” From the writer of the Award Winning hit, The Seafarer, and other successful plays comes the Southeastern Premier, “The Birds.” This new play is a chilling psychological portrait, inspired by Daphne Du Maurier’s short story (on which Hitchcock’s famous thriller film was based.) It’s not yet winter and

there’s a chill in the air, the sky is darkening and the atmosphere is eerie, as millions of birds swarm overhead, upon an unsuspecting city, and while, in an isolated abandoned house, in a Cornish seaside town, war veteran, Nat Hocken, living in the town and working part time on a farm, notices a large number of birds behaving strangely. As the situation worsens and the birds start to attack, he needs to find shelter. As complete strangers, Nat and Diane, a writer, both trying to escape, find refuge in the cottage, but experience the pressure of being imprisoned in a farmhouse, by thousands of birds maneuvering outside, and are confined with no electricity and little food, as they seek shelter from the masses of birds that are attacking everyone in the vicinity. Nat and Diane, both survivors of broken relationships start to form a bond, but the relationship is broken by the arrival of Julia, a third presence. It appears, they are one happy family but eventually feathers are ruffled leading to thoughts of murder. Experience a thriller like none other as “The Birds,” fly to the Mosaic Theatre, now on stage through Dec. 9th. For tickets and other info, call the box office, located at the American Heritage Center, 12200 W. Broward Blvd., Plantation, (954) 5778243.

New Recycling Ordinance Coming to Hollywood in 2015


By Charles Lassiter, Environmental Services Supervisor HOLLYWOOD - Did you know that last year, more than 41,000 tons of garbage was dumped at the incinerator for disposal and 8,500 tons were diverted based on existing recycling efforts? With disposal costs last year at $99.20, the diversion of the recycling tonnage represented a savings of more than $843,200. The City of Hollywood is using regulations and ordinances in conjunc-

tion with public outreach and education as tools to enhance recycling throughout the City. The Department of Public Works, in partnership with the Green Team Advisory Committee, has made adjustments to existing ordinances that

mandate recycling to include all new and existing multi-family units and businesses within the City by Oct. 1, 2015. This means a recycling program will have to be offered and available to each business’ customers and land-

Innovative Canopy at Hollywood Beach Business Recognized with Design Award

HOLLYWOOD – Awnings of Hollywood Inc. and Yogurt UR Way Café on Hollywood Beach have been recognized with a prestigious 2012 International Achievement Award from the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) for the design and implementation of the store's innovative entry and dining canopy. The striking blue canopy outside Yogurt UR Way Café, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop at 1000 N. Broadwalk, won first place in the small awnings and canopies project category. The canopy, which sports a unique ocean wave design, was among 81 winners in 30 categories that were recognized for spectacular work in the specialty fabrics industry based on complexity, design, workmanship, uniqueness and function. Yogurt UR Way Café is owned by actor and comedian Art Metrano, who is well-known for his role as Lieutenant Mauser in the first two Police Academy movies. Metrano's customized do-it-yourself approach to healthy eating, which includes a wide array of soft frozen yogurt, ice cream, sorbet and custard flavors and toppings as well as a variety of wraps, was launched March 29 in the recently renovated historic Hotel Sheldon on Hollywood Beach. Metrano wanted to add an entry canopy to the existing building that would not only provide cover for patio diners but be eye-catching and evoke the ocean. The awning has three-dimensional changes and vertical and horizontal curves on the main structure with a lace-on cover and a wrap-style valance. The canopy graphics were created by Hollywood-based Metro Signs, Inc., and Manuel Synalovski Associates served as project architect. Founded in the early '60s, family-owned Awnings of Hollywood has operated at 5828 Washington St. since 1986. It offers a full range of commercial and residential awning, canopy and gazebo products, and services from design, engineering and construction to installation of custom canvas structures that exceed Unified Building Code of Florida regulations. Awnings of Hollywood's innovative products include waterproof tension structures and wind-safe retractables, and its eye-catching designs have won several awards from the IFAI for Outstanding Achievement and Design by IFAI.

The Department of Public Works, in partnership with the Green Team Advisory Committee, has made adjustments to existing ordinances that mandate recycling to include all new and existing multi-family units and businesses within the City by Oct. 1, 2015.

lords’ tenants by Oct. 1, 2015. General recycling information and current program guidelines will need to be distributed to employees of businesses and to new and existing unit owners and tenants on an annual basis. This means your recycled material will need to be contained separately from your garbage dumpster. Though there is a cost to recycle, recycling pre-

vents the unnecessary disposal of usable materials, saves energy, and reduces air and water pollution. Recycling also can reduce disposal costs and save businesses money by diverting materials from the trash dumpster to the recycling bin. Recycling programs are often less expensive than disposing of this material as garbage. Savings are often achieved by

reducing the frequency of collection, and in some cases, the size of garbage dumpsters. Contact your garbage hauler to get a program started for your business or multi-family establishment. For more information, contact the City of Hollywood Public Works Department at 954.967.4526 or Environmental Services at 954.967.4320.

HOLIDAY LIGHTS CELEBRATION Hallandale Beach City officials and residents kick off the Holiday Season

Every year, the City of Hallandale Beach gets in the spirit of the season - in many ways. From toy drives and dinners to last Friday night's Holiday Lights Celebration, this is a community that puts smiles on the faces of all ages. The year event gives many a chance to see the thousands of lights in the median along East Hallandale Beach Boulevard. Excitement also was building throughout the evening as children lined up to meet with Santa Claus. Hundreds of residents and visitors packed the plaza to watch the lighting event then visit with Santa as well as ride the amusement rides in the plaza for the event.

TOP LEFT: In on the lighting ceremony are, from left, Santa Claus, businessman Boris Moroz, City Commissioner Michele Lazarow, City Commissioner Anthony Sanders, and City Manager Renee Crichton. Mr. Moroz allowed the City to use his property at 1750 East Hallandale Beach Boulevard for the annual event. Hundreds of residents and visitors jammed the area to visit with Santa, enjoy carnival rides and several performances by area children. TOP RIGHT: Youngsters from Hallandale Elementary School’s Latin Dance Club entertained the crowd Friday night at the City of Hallandale Beach annual Holiday Lights Celebration at 1750 East Hallandale Beach Boulevard. The students were just one of several performing groups to provide music and dance at the celebration to open the holiday season. (Photos Courtesy City of Hallandale Beach Public Relations)

Today’s Wigs Have Come A Long Way Baby!


By Suzanne Wallace Sun Times NORTH MIAMI - Jennifer Lopez, Brittany Spears, Raquel Welch, Beyonce, the TV Anchor Woman, my Doctor, the girl at the next table, the lady at the airport, my daughter’s best friend....what do these women have in common? They are all wearing wigs and they look fantastic! Today’s wigs have come a long way, baby. They are nothing like they used to, heavy on your head, fake more! They are light weight, realistic looking, stylish, and fun! You can learn a lot about wigs with a trip to The Wig Goddess at 15508 Biscayne Blvd in North Miami. It’s a short ride up Biscayne Blvd. from Hallandale, on the West side just after 156th Street and well worth the trip. Wig Goddess has a large variety of wigs in synthetic materials as well as natural human hair. Surprisingly, many synthetic wigs are heat friendly which means you can use a curling iron on them, and human hair wigs can be styled, colored or even cut by your hairdresser. Owner, Laura says, “The cap construction of wigs has really changed giving them a more realistic appearance. The lace front wig is popular now because it gives you a more natural looking hairline. A wig with a mono-top actually lets you part your hair in many directions to create more hair styles to give you a different look with only one wig. Every woman should own at least one wig to put on for last minute invites, or maybe you just don’t feel like working with your hair that morning. No problem, put on your wig and go out with confidence knowing you look great.” Some of the Wig Goddess’s clients are local entertainers who use

the wigs to create fantastic new looks for themselves, working women who don’t have time to get their hair done as often as they would like and young women who want to look trendy and match their wigs with their latest styles and moods. Laura enjoys helping the ladies find the right wig for all their needs. Wigs are great for women of all ages! Let us not forget women who are battling cancer or hair loss from medicine, or health issues such as vitamin deficiency, stress, or Alopecia. Laura reminded me that there are children with cancer who would love to have a good fitting wig and the Wig Goddess carries children’s wigs as well. For those who want more privacy the shop has a private fitting room. We all know that a good hair day gives us that little boost of confidence and puts us in a happy mood. A wig is the perfect solution. The Wig Goddess carries hair accessories such as scarves, wraps, clip-in hair extensions, which by the way are better than the glue-in and weaves because they pull and damage your hair over time. There’s also a large assortment of pony-tails. There’s even a baseball cap with hair attached that can be worn down or in a pony tail for oc-

casions when you want a sporty or casual look. Perhaps your hair is just too flat on problem...there’s Hair Toppers (Crown Volumizers) to gives you fullness on top. When you enter the door you will be pleasantly surprised at the many different colors and styles in stock. I was amazed to see some blond wigs with dark roots. That’s trendy now. We would never let our roots show but now it is fashionable. The Ombre look is in now too...darker at the top becoming lighter at the tips. There were bobs, and long, sexy styles, every hair shade you can imagine including silver and gold for special occasions or parties. In fact, a client purchased several of the same color and style to be worn by models for a shoot. Some of the brands I saw were: Raquel Welch, Tony of Beverly, Jon Renau, Envy and Georgie. I asked Laura about

buying wigs online and was told it wasn’t a good idea, because you really should be fitted for the wig and it’s always best to try your wig on to make sure the color is right and the style is flattering. Another reason, when you look at a wig online the color may look very different when you actually receive the wig because the color you see on your monitor may not be accurate or the photo may have altered the color. Wigs are great for travel or cruises. No one wants to spend their vacation worrying about how their hair looks. Just throw on your outfit and put on your wig and have fun! Some ladies like to have a collection of wigs of many styles and colors to change their hairstyle to fit the occasion without damaging their own hair. And when you think of all the money you can spend getting your own hair colored and in just a short time it needs it

again...not with a wig. You actually save money in the long run and they are just so much fun. Let’s face it ladies, beautifully styled wigs can make a

woman look and feel fabulous! The season is here with lots of holiday parties and special events coming up. Now is the time to visit the Wig Goddess!

WIG GODDESS 15508 Biscayne Blvd. (at 156th Street & Biscayne) North Miami, FL 33160 305-354-9222 HOURS Monday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Tips for Healthy Traveling this Holiday Season (BPT) - Staying healthy during the busy holiday travel season can be challenging, especially for those living with diabetes. A change in routine, inconsistent meals and stress associated with travel can all affect the ability to successfully manage one’s diabetes. “I am one of the nearly 26 million Americans living with diabetes,” says Julie McQueen, a member of the Sanofi US Lantus® Champions program, a network of people living with diabetes who have achieved personal diabetes goals. “At first, I was worried about whether or not my diagnosis would affect my ability to travel. Learning how to be prepared was the key for me.” Now that Julie is experienced in traveling and managing diabetes, she has helpful tips for others who may be in a similar situation: BE PREPARED While traveling, it can be easy to give-in to eating foods you normally would avoid at home. Julie suggests packing diabetesfriendly snacks to help avoid the temptation of unhealthy but convenient options. Granola bars, fruit and anything pre-packaged with a low carb count can be healthy alternatives. If fast food is the only option, Julie suggests opting for the salad or fruit parfait. MAINTAIN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY Although it seems like travelers spend a lot of time sitting in a car, there are many opportunities to maintain physical activity while you are traveling. Julie always checks ahead to see if there is a gym or a suitable place to walk around her destination. Places like a zoo or park are great places to get exercise, while still exploring your destination. Simple things like taking the stairs in the hotel instead of the elevator are always a good choice to increase physical activity. Always ask your doctor before beginning an exercise program. KEEP ON TRACK WITH TREATMENT While packing a bag before hitting the road, Julie always makes sure she has her prescription. She suggests packing extra medication and prescription slips, just in case. Julie uses once a day insulin Lantus® (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection), which comes in the Lantus® SoloSTAR®, a disposable pre-filled pen, as part of an overall diabetes treatment plan which includes a healthy diet, exercise and oral medications. Julie notes it’s important to work

with a healthcare professional, no matter what time of the year, to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

Indications and Usage for Lantus® (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection) Prescription Lantus® is a long-acting insulin used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes and adults and children (6 years and older) with type 1 diabetes for the control of high blood sugar. It should be taken once a day at the same time each day to lower blood glucose. Do not use Lantus® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. Important Safety Information for Lantus® (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection) Do not take Lantus® if you are allergic to insulin or any of the inactive ingredients in Lantus®. You must test your blood sugar levels while using insulin, such as

Lantus®. Do not make any changes to your dose or type of insulin without talking to your healthcare provider. Any change of insulin should be made cautiously and only under medical supervision. Do NOT dilute or mix Lantus® with any other insulin or solution. It will not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. Lantus® must only be used if the solution is clear and colorless with no particles visible. Do not share needles, insulin pens or syringes with others. The most common side effect of insulin, including Lantus®, is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which may be serious. Some people may experience symptoms such as shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. Severe hypoglycemia may be serious and life threatening. It may cause harm to

In rare cases, some allergic reactions may be life threatening. Tell your doctor about other medicines and supplements you are taking because they can change the way insulin works. Before starting Lantus®, tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including if you have liver or kidney problems, are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding or planning to breast-feed.

SERVING THE JEWISH COMMUNITY FOR OVER 30 YEARS Ralph’s International Market and Niagara

Ralph’s International Market 3701 North 29th Avenue Hollywood, FL 33030 954-923-9037 – 954-925-6775 954-925-5338 Fax

HOURS Monday – Friday (7:30 AM-6:00 PM) Saturday (8:00 AM – 6:00 PM) Sunday (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM)

Distributors have been serving the Jewish Community in South Florida for 30 years. Most of the food products they carry are Kosher certified, which enables them to offer you an extensive range of goods for your bakery or home, including yoshon flour. You can go to their website to view their products and catalog. You may be saying to yourself, “This sure sounds like a unique place.” You would be right, it is! Mr. Pat Lucci founded Niagara Distributors in 1979 in the same location where it is today. However his experience in the food business started long before that. As a young man from Buffalo, New York, Mr. Lucci attended the Merchant Marine Academy and received a Commission in the Navy. He volunteered for active duty during the Korean War. Upon release from active duty he continued his career in the Naval Reserves while moving back to his hometown and into the franchise business. Mr. Lucci began a lengthy career in food service as a single unit franchisee of a Mr. Donut in Buffalo. Over the years his business grew from that one unit to become the largest Mr. Donut franchisee

and an important leader in the industry fight for independent franchise distribution. At one time he even owned and operated 10 Arthur Treacher’s franchises where he met Dave Thomas the founder of Wendys. Along with his franchise business he was also the National President for the Naval Reserve Association for two years. While running a fund-raising campaign to build a national headquarters for the Association in Washington DC, Mr. Lucci met Joan Croc (wife of Ray Crock, founder of McDonalds) who generously donated to the campaign. Mr. Lucci served for 30 years in Active Duty and Reserves retiring as an Admiral. He is proud of his 30 years of service to his country and equally proud of his 30 year Niagara Distributor business here in Hollywood, Florida. The company continues to operate under the leadership of his son Richard and daughter, Janet with Mr. Lucci as an active consultant. The next time you happen to be driving down Stirling Road or Sheridan Street, turn onto 29th Avenue and grab a delicious breakfast or lunch at Ralph’s International Market. Or just explore the never know what delicacy you may take home.

Where else can you get 2 eggs, choice of meat (bacon, ham or sausage), choice of home fries, oatmeal or grits, toast and coffee included for $2.99? Or maybe choose one of their other items from the menu at the same low prices. How about a daily lunch special from $4.99 to $5.65 that includes one entree and two sides cooked fresh every day?
