For a couple of hours one recent Friday, it wasnt business as usual at Hollywood Central Elementary. Teachers put the three Rs on hold temporarily while students got some real world lessons as part of the annual Career Day. Youngsters were introduced to a range of occupations at the April 25 event, which featured about two dozen speakers, including Hollywood Police officers, a husband-and-wife legal team, a dentist, a pharmacist, martial arts instructors and Hollywood Central Spanish teacher Lynette Culp. A part-time yoga instructor, Culp took a handson approach, inviting students to join her on the floor to learn some poses. One Career Day highlight was a presentation by parent Laura Schoeller, a jockey at Gulfstream Park racetrack in Hallandale Beach. Schoeller dressed in silks, showed a video of one of her races and demonstrated some moves on her training apparatus. Hollywood Gazettes general manager Jennifer Sandomir and administrative director Barbara Pellicano gave a presentation about the media to secondand third-graders. The students received their own personalized press passes and became journalists for a day. www.hollywoodgazette.com by Caron Conway Correspondent ... 19 ...... .. So you think you can dance?

Hollywood Beach artist Ginger Zuckerman and her youngest child Lauren share not only a motherdaughter relationship and a close friendship, but also a business partnership. The talented twosome started Just Beachie, Inc., a home-based enterprise specializing in unique hand-beaded jewelry and other nature-inspired items, in January 2007. It would seem an unusual undertaking for Ginger, a former legal secretary, and Lauren, 24, who has a degree in psychology. But the mother-daughter team had two important interests in common: a longtime love of crafts and a desire for true professional fulfillment. Ginger Zuckerman decided to tap into her creative side after sending her last of five children off to college and retiring as legal secretary for her husband, tax attorney Ira L. Zuckerman. Ginger took her very first art class at Weston Community Center just five years ago and later joined the Jean Leighton Studio in Hollywood. Some of her watercolor paintings will be displayed at Hollywood City Hall beginning in July. Ginger currently is creating fish tank-style art pieces and collages that incorporate her watercolors with found beach objects. Lauren Zuckerman, who did some serious soul-searching after graduating from Florida State University, also has thrown herself wholeheartedly into the business. As Ginger put it, When you have creative spirits in life, youve got to go with it. Just Beachies online store features Gingers artwork, as well as sarongs inspired by her watercolors, Laurens photo greeting cards and the pairs one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. Shortly after incorporating their new business, Ginger and Lauren started taking beading classes, and Lauren was a natural. Together, they made more than 300 jewelry pieces in a two-month period. We have sat around the table for 12, 14 hours at a time, Ginger said. We didnt even realize we were still in our pajamas at 7 oclock in the evening. She said the response to Just Beachies jewelry collection which is featured at art shows, private parties and a friends South Beach store has been amazing. While starting a business can be stressful, especially in the current economic climate, Ginger and Lauren are enjoying sharing the experience. Weve never had this kind of relationship before, said Lauren. Its really good, actually. We get to spend a lot of time together. Ginger said her legal background has given her a strong business sense, while Lauren, like so many of her generation, is extremely computer technology-savvy. Her skills and my skills are so different, Ginger said. The combination of the both of us together makes one helluva team. For more information on Just Beachie, call 954-547-5144 or visit www.justbeachie.com. The online store also features specialty wedding jewelry, as well as Foundation Heart Pendants that help support various causes, including breast cancer and autism research, homeless veterans and world hunger efforts.

Three Hollywood women are part of a growing wave of mompreneurs who are discovering that motherhood and career are not mutually exclusive enterprises. Caren Horvitz, stay-at-home mom to 13-month-old Gavin, started her own hip babywear line, Onesie Upon A Time, shortly before finding out she was pregnant. After her son was born, Horvitz found herself juggling the demands of new motherhood and a new business. She found that it is possible to nurture both her child and her creative spirit, thanks in part to networking with other moms. It was at the Mommies in Motion exercise program in Hollywood that Horvitz first met Nikki Kusens, another Hollywood mom with her own home-based childrens clothing business, Nu Luv, which offers various designer lines at affordable prices. One of those lines is now Onesie Upon A Time. Kusens started her business in January following the deaths of her beloved grandparents, Evelyn and Gus Ash, just months apart. She was working for a developer when her grandmother went into the hospital with a broken hip. As Ashs condition deteriorated, Kusens left her job to be able to spend as much time with her grandmother as possible. Less than a week before she died, Ash suggested that she and her granddaughter start a vendingmachine business together. It would dispense love and caring and they would call it New Love, Kusens recalled her grandmother saying. And so, about five months later, she opened Nu Luv to live out my grandmothers legacy, as well as provide other moms with a muchneeded service. Kusens said she loves shopping for her 18-monthold daughter, Charli, but its so expensive. Kusens made a little boutique in her home and shows her merchandise by appointment, at house parties, and at community and charity events. Online shopping will be available by the end of May One of Kusens top priorities in business is to spread the joy, and so she congratulates new moms with a complimentary outfit and gives an additional discount on a childs birthday. We try to be generous, Kusens said. Im trying to do what my grandmother would want me to do. For Horvitz, having a home-based business lets her be both a mom and a creative being. Through a new partnership with marketing consultant Gloria Mallardi, another Hollywood mother, Horvitz is expanding her artistic endeavors to include a full line of personalized stationery. consultants and mother of a 1-yearold son, Journey, met Horvitz at a local Mommy & Me class and the two felt a connection, she recalled. We both were creative souls and had other similarities, said Horvitz. While programs for new mothers offer the benefits of mother-child bonding, exercise, socializing and support from fellow moms, Never in my wildest dreams did I expect it to be a networking opportunity, Horvitz said. Its been a great little small world. Not one to, as she calls it, be left in Barney land, Horvitz is doing professional double duty these days, working with Mallardi on their new stationery line while she fills special orders for Onesie Upon A Time and prepares to introduce a new streamlined spring collection. If you can make your craft revolve around your baby, its great, she said. Mallardi agreed that embarking on the joint venture is even more exciting because I can incorporate my marketing experience into something Im extremely passionate about, which is my child. The new business, Wee-Words, includes baby shower invitations, birth announcements and birthday cards and a special message for all stay-at-home mothers. We want other moms to know that if they join forces, they can set the world on fire, said Horvitz. For more information on the new stationery line, visit www.wee-words. com. Visit www.onesieuponatime. com to learn more about Horvitzs babywear line.

Charged with having an extremely big heart, Shondelle Solomon-Miles, along with local business leaders was locked up on April 9th at Mama Mias on Young Circle in Downtown Hollywood. Shondelle was in early labor at the event and went directly from raising funds for the charity to the hospital to deliver her baby girl, Senaya Leigh Miles.Hollywood Lakes resident Rhonda Tescher got her 15 minutes of fame and scored a minor victory for overtaxed stay-at-home moms everywhere when she was selected for a brand-new look as part of the weekly Ambush Makeovers segment on NBCs Today show. With the help of her Mah-Jongg group, Tescher came up with a surefire gimmick to win a coveted makeover during a recent trip to New York City last month with husband Marc, son David, 9, and daughters Jill, 6, and Rachel, 4. Tescher wrapped herself in yellow caution tape and carried a sign that read: walking diaster in need of makeover. I looked terrible. I tried to look as bad as I could, said Tescher, who got up at 4 a.m. April 11 to stand in line outside the studio. People were looking at me kind of funny while I was wrapping myself in caution tape. Following Teschers dramatic transformation which included a haircut and color, makeup and a new outfit the curious stares turned to enthusiastic nods of approval. I knew that I was ready for a change, so I just said go for it, Tescher said. It was a lot of fun and I had a great time.Expectant mom raises $1100 for local MDA while in laborHollywood mom gets star treatment by Today Show by Caron Conway Correspondent

19 (born 4/10/08) Shondelle and Ron Solomon-Miles the Hollywood chiropractor and acupuncturist Dr. Elliott Zvis career exemplifies the famous John Lennon quote: Life is what happens to you while youre busy making other plans. For Zvi, who counts among his patients several celebrities in the entertainment and horseracing industries, the path to professional fulfillment started out in a totally different place, with some fortuitous twists and turns along the way. The South Florida native, who has called Hollywood home for the past 10 years, got his college degree in chemistry. He always wanted to be a doctor but ended up working in research for two years before becoming an environmental pollution control inspector. While driving to and from various hazardous sites and industrial facilities, Zvi started experiencing neck pain from turning his head in traffic. His sister happened to be dating a chiropractor at the time and suggested an office visit. So he fixed me up, and I thought, Wow, what a great profession, Zvi recalled. I can use my hands to make people feel better. And so Zvi went back to school and became a chiropractor in 1999. While vacationing in Montego Bay, Jamaica, he visited a local chiropractor for an adjustment. As it turned out, the doctor was elderly and in poor health, and needed a break from his thriving practice. I started working with him right then and there, Zvi said. During his yearlong stint in Jamaica, he learned how to give racehorses adjustments, a skill that eventually would lead to human patients in the racing industry, including jockey Edgar Prado, who won the 2006 Kentucky Derby aboard the popular thoroughbred Barbaro. Back home, while working for another chiropractor, Zvi met a horse trainer who introduced him to Calder Race Course executive Bobby Humphrey and, in turn, the areas horseracing community. Three years ago, after building up a strong patient base through mainly word of mouth and reputation, Zvi opened his own practice, Hollywood Chiropractic & Acupunture, at 4625 Hollywood Blvd. He counts among his patients the members of powerhouse bands Aerosmith and Nickelback, popular childrens performers The Wiggles, and numerous trainers and well-known jockeys such as Prado and the legendary Jorge Chavez. For the past four years, Zvi has served as track chiropractor at both Calder and Gulfstream Park, giving adjustments and performing kinesio strapping, his own special taping technique. The procedure keeps jockeys joints and extremities secure during a race with flexible tape that does not inhibit movement. In addition to his roster of celebrity patients, Zvi treats a lot of local Hollywood people, from kids all the way to Medicare. He also incorporates acupuncture with his chiropractic care, mainly for relieving pain but also to treat addictions, hyperactivity and female problems. Fate may have played a part in Zvis professional journey, but in the end, I worked really hard to build my career, he said.Local chiropractor serves celeb. clientele Hollywood Gazettes Baby of the Month wins a new designer outfit of their choice courtesy of Nu Luv!

Dovetail will celebrate its oneyear anniversary at 1930-C Harrison Street in Downtown Hollywood on May 3rd. This successful Downtown Hollywood business offers Avedas signature services and entire line of high-performance, Earth-friendly products made of certified organic ingredients. Leading Dovetails team of beauty professionals is Linda Weinberger, a master stylist and master colorist with more than 25 years of experience. Lindas husband Alan, an Aveda product expert, manages the salon. The Weinbergers, Hollywood residents for more than 15 years, chose the Harrison Street location because of the growth taking place in the Downtown District and its inviting ambiance. Its not a typical shopping mall environment, Alan said. The Weinbergers hope other Earth-friendly businesses will follow Dovetails example. By bringing the Aveda culture to Downtown, we hope to spur on other companies that are environmentally, socially and culturally responsible to this area, said Alan. Avedas mission to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility is reflected in its support of organic agriculture, ecological product packaging, Earth Month fund raising campaigns and various charitable contributions, as well as manufacturing practices. This commitment to the environment is shared by Dovetail owners and operators who invite guests to stop by the salon for a complimentary consultation and relaxing cup of Avedas Comforting Tea. In addition to benefiting from quality products, outstanding service and the most up-to-date styles and treatments, clients have the satisfaction of knowing that their service dollars help support the environment. The Guest Experience at Dovetail enhances both the body and spirit in a relaxing atmosphere of hand-carved mahogany stations, soothing music and soft lighting.

SLCs Dance Factory has all the right moves Earth-friendly salon celebrates 1st anniversary If the memory of stopping by the corner deli for a milehigh corned beef sandwich or a pastrami on rye makes your tastebuds water, youre sure to enjoy Harrison Caf & Deli. Ron Cohen, owner, says: Ive talked to a lot of people and everyone seemed to agree that what was missing in the Downtown District is a place that offers quality deli, with quick, in-and-out convenience. Adding to the charm of this neighborhood deli is The Beatles images that adorn the interior, and the caf-style, outdoor seating for those who enjoy the feeling of dining alfresco. Every neighborhood needs a good deli, and now Downtown Hollywood has one. Ron, having grown up in Hollywood, wanted to bring a deli style caf that is unlike the existing dining opportunities in Downtown Hollywood. Harrison Caf and Deli opened its doors in midMarch 2008 in the Harrison Court Building, 2028 Harrison Street. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Harrison Caf and Deli is closed on Sunday. Call (954) 929-8979 for pickup or free delivery.

City officials have joined doglovers and their canine companions in giving the Hollywood Dog Beach an enthusiastic paws up. The trial recreation area that opened Aug. 31 at North Beach has become a permanent dog beach under an ordinance unanimously approved by city commissioners April 16. Well-mannered pooches are permitted on a 100-yard stretch of sand between Custer and Pershing streets, and its accompanying surf, Friday through Sunday from 5 to 9 p.m. during Daylight Savings Time and from 3 to 7 p.m. in the winter. The people are just absolutely delighted with the dog beach, said Helena Drori, president of Dog Beach of Hollywood (DBOH), an organization that fought for the canine recreation area for more than a year. The dog beach has been run well and it really has been a success thats been so positive for Hollywood. Despite area residents initial concerns about potential safety, health and environmental hazards, fourlegged beachgoers and their human counterparts caused no real problems during the seven-month trial period, according to city staff. Of the 4,138 individual canine visits counted by mid-March, only three citations were issued to owners, for failing to leash their dogs in the parking area. Dog beach supporters said expanding the recreational outlets for dog-lovers would be a selling point for tourists and those looking to buy property in a pet-friendly coastal community. The only other existing seaside exercise outlet for Broward residents and their pups is the 13-year-old Canine Beach on Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. During the trial period, the Hollywood Dog Beach cost just over $8,000 to run and generated close to $9,300 in revenue. DBOH paid for liability insurance and a beach ranger to patrol the area. Drori said the group, which encourages pet owners to act as ambassadors of the dog beach, mailed thousands of postcards as part of a pet-iquette educational campaign, and donated two large trash receptacles outfitted with doggy-waste bags and five humorous and very effective informational signs along Surf Road. City leaders praised the organization, which boasts more than 200 members, for its dedication in making the pilot program a success. Drori, a regular at the Hollywood Dog Beach along with her 7-year-old Weimaraner, Ginger, said DBOH plans to purchase additional trash receptacles to help keep the surrounding beach area litter-free. She hopes her groups efforts will encourage beachgoers to be responsible beyond the confines of the canine recreation area. Theres no reason why we cant make a difference, Drori said. Dog beach weekend passes are $10. A six-month pass costs $30 for Hollywood residents and $60 for nonresidents. Canine beachgoers also must have a current rabies tag. Pet owners are required to clean up after their furry charges and keep them on a leash or under voice command inside the dog beach.

When Lolas on Harrisons chef/ owner Michael Wagner made his entrepreneurial foray into restaurant ownership, he couldnt have picked a more challenging time and location. Located in the former Primanotte downtown Harrison Street locale near the Dixie Highway train tracks, the trendy eatery is virtually out of foot traffic range. Making matters riskier, Michaels Kitchen -a magnet for discriminating diners -closed about a month after Lolas opened. And to add insult to injury, the burgeoning downtown development pretty much came to a halt at the same time. But the success of the team at Lolas gives credence to the adage that tough times dont last, but tough people do. Youve got to credit the mild mannered, soft spoken, wellcredentialed former Tuscan chef with earning both local and national acclaim well in advance of Lolas one year anniversary. Lets face it, when a Hollywoodian makes the New York Times -its big news. Since Lolas is named after Wagners paternal grandmother, I figured what better way could there be to pay homage to mothers and grandmothers in the Mothers Day month of May than to feature the namesake eatery. (Check out the photo of Lola in either the mens or womens bathroom). Speaking of mothers, I brought along my friend Donald who flew here to visit his own mother. A good eater, like me, Donald practically lives to eat, so I knew hed be delighted. Liquor licenses are challenging and expensive, so Wagner made the most with his beer and wine license. Popular starters are sweet, and the now famous Saketinis are no exception. We began with sake, fresh pineapple puree and juice blended Pineapple Passion Saketini ($8) and a 12 oz. bottle of Sea Dog, Wild Blueberry Wheat Ale ($5). Donald quickly slurped down the Saketini, and I enjoyed the mild sweetness and gentle flavor of the fruit ale. Its noteworthy to mention here that general manager Heather Keenly hails from New York where beer is elevated to an upscale status, featured in varying sampling flights so brew aficionados can savor the nuances. Featuring a collection of American handcrafted and imported beers mostly ranging from $5 to $9, there are a few exceptions like the Oregon bred Rogue Ales Brewery, Imperial IPA ($20) or the same brewerys Juniper Ale ($12) amongst a few others. Still in liquid mode, Donald downed the highly recommended oyster shooter ($5) in a chilled shot glass consisting of one fresh shucked oyster marinating in dry sake, ginger, citrus ponzu sauce, and cilantro. Not much for oysters, I happily drank some of the flavorful juice that was marvelously devoid of fishiness. However, I do enjoy seafood and we both found the Salmon Tartar ($10) to be a winner. Hand cut Chilean salmon brought to life with lemon vinaigrette, red topiko caviar, black sesame seeds, jalapeno chile oil, and complimented by cassava crackers, this dish is a delightful and less pricey version of tuna tartar. Next we sampled the lemonyflavored Caesar Salad with fork and knife romaine hearts (whole uncut leafs), shaved reggianito, complimented by white anchovies, sided by freshly baked Parmesan twists ($9). If you like a tart lemony Caesar, this is the dish for you. The Parmesan twists are so good; they could stand on their own. At chefs suggestion, we decided to sample dinner entrees and we were both very pleased. I loved the Pan Roasted Turkey Tenderloin with caramelized Brussels sprouts, cream polenta, complimented by the pomegranate-sun dried cherry gravy ($19). I found the turkey to be extraordinarily tender, moist and flavorful without screaming turkey. This is the perfect holiday dish and its offered at lunch as well. Donald preferred the Grilled Skirt Steak ($23) cooked in a homemade sweet based house steak sauce, similar to Peter Lugers Steakhouse sauce, sided with Parmesan potatoes au gratin, sauted broccoli. Wrapped in a coil like Floridian South American beefs, this dish offers a huge portion of flavorful meat. Those looking for summertime Q, will probably want to taste the tenderto-the-touch Coca-Cola barbecued beef short ribs coupled with buttermilk onion rings, and creamed corn with tarragon ($22). I do too, particularly from the press this lunch time entre has received. If you try it first, let me know if its really as good as they say. But, appetites being what they are, we decided to move on to dessert and Im glad we did. The Raspberry Crme Brulee ($6) not just garnered with fresh raspberries but also made with fresh raspberries was delightfully light and the fruit added an almost nutty flavor. I really enjoyed it but my all time favorite was the Chocolate Stout Cake with Chocolate Stout frosting and Chocolate Sauce ($7). Made from almost a full bottle of Rogue Ales Brewery, Chocolate Stout, Oregon 22 oz 6.0% ABV ($12), the cake has a rich chocolate flavor without being too sweet. Per chefs suggestion, we washed the cake down with the namesake beer, and if I wasnt such a coffeeholic, the pairing would make sense. I was so impressed with the desserts that I suggested he offer a special dessert or after dinner menu for those who are wallet conscious. And, speaking of wallet consciousness, Lolas has some helpful tricks. For one, theyre offering lunch which features the Coca Cola Q and other popular dishes, but at a lesser price than dinner. Additionally, Lolas recently introduced their version of a Sunset Dinner, affectionately called the Nightfall Dinner Menu, served Tuesday through Sunday from 5 p.m. 6:30 p.m. Priced to please, $35 gives you a choice of appetizer, entre and dessert with complimentary wine, beer, Saketini, American coffee, iced tea or soda. With Mothers Day fast upon us, it might be a good time to stroll down Harrison Street and see what all the brouhaha is all about.

We stressed the importance of the First Amendment and the value of communication skills. Then we gave them their first newspaper deadline, said Sandomir. Students were each given a story assignment for the paper. Some chose to write about their mothers and others on the topic of their school, Hollywood Central Elementary. Alexa from Amy Hayes thirdgrade class reported, The teachers in Hollywood Central are caring and extraordinary. In Hollywood Central they teach you math, science, manners, and how to be a good student. Hollywood Central is the best! I like ice cream on Wednesdays and the food, too, said third-grader Andrea. I like the fall masquerade... and the fundraiser and the shows that the students do every year. Next to recess and teachers, the food seems to be a big hit at Hollywood Central. Brichele from Hayes thirdgrade class stressed, I like it when we have tacos for lunch. I also like Hollywood Central because of the ice cream on Wednesdays. Robert from Shirley Moskowitzs third-grade class did an excellent job on his headline and story. He reported that his favorite thing at Hollywood Central is the Math Super Stars program. When you get a certain amount [of stars] you get a prize, he explained. Students were excited to learn that some of their story assignments would be shared in this Mothers Day edition of Hollywood Gazette and chose to take the opportunity on Career Day to share what they love most about mom. I love my mom because I think she is special and she will always have a special spot in my heart. My mom makes sure we are healthy and we are fed right, explained Devin from Hayes third-grade class. Tyrone from the same class added, I like the way my moms smile blooms during the day. I like the way she hugs me when I am sad and how she supports me when Im about to give up. Shirley Moskowitzs third-grade students were also happy to report breaking news messages to mom through the paper. Sarah reported, I love my mom because she talks to me every single day, and when I have a cavity she brings me to the dentist. Mary cited fresh dinners every day and lots of flowers at the end of my shows as the key reasons mom means so much. Victorias mom is always there for her. Like once, I fell... and guess what? She kissed all of my boo-boos. Thats what I love about my mom. Sonali is looking forward to trapeze lessons at the ArtsPark at Young Circle that her mom promised after she finishes her homework. We do Career Day every year and I think the neatest thing is that we have such a diversity of people coming in, said Principal Fran Merenstein. Its important to teach kids that there are a lot of different things you can do. Fifth-grade teacher Deborah Cowfer, the Career Day coordinator, said the event is always a big hit with the students. They like to ask questions, she said. The kids look forward to it. And to show their appreciation, as well as reinforce their language arts lessons, students write thank-you notes to the guest speakers. Cowfer said Career Day participants, each of whom made three 40-minute presentations, reflected a pretty good mix of both community members and parents. Merenstein said its important to involve the community in school events such as Career Day. We want the community to know that we are a community school, she said. Weve been here since 1922.
