The green iguana has evolved in recent years from a popular exotic pet to a commonplace pest that runs wild across Broward County, destroying the local landscaping and depositing their droppings on lawns, docks, patios and pool decks. The iguanas reproductive prowess one male can court several females who can each produce up to 50 eggs per clutch and the general lack of natural predators have resulted in a dramatic spike in the feral iguana population. But the blame for this iguana invasion ultimately lies not with nature, but with man. Native to Central and South America, the green iguana arrived in South Florida in 1966, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Through the years, the iguanas calm disposition, bright colors and exotic appeal have made it a popular pet, with more than three-quarters of a million lizards imported into the United States annually. Hatchling green iguanas measuring only 7 or 8 inches are sold in pet stores all over the country for about $10. Unfortunately, most pet buyers fascination with iguanas far exceeds their understanding of how to care for these exotic animals, which can live up to 20 years in captivity. Far from lowmaintenance, the fastgrowing iguanas need for space as well as special lighting and heat presents challenges to amateur hobbyists who lack the knowledge or resources to properly care for their pet and end up releasing them into the wild. In addition, handling and caring for iguanas require meticulous hygiene, as their droppings may harbor salmonella bacteria that can cause life-threatening illness in Chances are you know or are acquainted with someone who has either lost their home to foreclosure or is in foreclosure.

With everyone talking about how the U.S. economy is down the toilet, its no wonder Joe the Plumber has become the official spokesman for the middleclass. Hollywood has its own Joe the Plumber, and fortunately for him, bankers and lenders arent ready to flush all hope away. Its [economy] affecting me pretty hard between the gas prices, and cost of living. A lot of people have leaky faucets or a toilet that doesnt work. If they have another one in the house, they dont fix it, said Hollywood native and local plumber, Joseph Puccio, 44. How prevalent is this practice of neglect? Puccio, owner of Snake-Out Plumbing, said he can walk into the home of at least 30 or 40 residents who have minor things that need to be repaired, but the owners are not willing to spend the money to do so. I had a customer in the Lakes area that lives in a million dollar home. Her fixtures are expensive, so when her tub faucet broke, rather than spending $2000 for a replacement to match, she decided to use the shower instead, said Puccio. On the bright side, Puccio said he thinks the worst is almost over. I think its already gone to as bad as it can get, he said. Patrick Mason, president of Hollywood-based Sun Credit Union, said he thinks the media incited panic that actually worsened the economic picture, and he maintains his trust in the American system. I have a lot of faith in the American public. With their stick-to-itiveness, theyre going to recover quickly, and will continue to be consumers of the world. The world has ridden on our shoulders and it will continue, said Mason. And, he said, local institutions still have money to loan to those who need it. I was at a meeting with other banking institutions at another municipality, and we all agreed that theres still money to be lent, said Mason. One example, said Mason, is that the Community Reinvestment Act requires banks to make a certain number of loans available to those who would not otherwise be qualified. If you need a car loan, all sorts of loans are available, including mortgages. There is money to be lent. Our credit union isnt cash strapped. In fact, we are in a very good position to take in additional assets and loan this money out in a prudent manner, said Mason. But the 5,500 member Sun Credit isnt burying its head in the sand either. Aware that the city of Hollywood is talking of layoffs, the credit union is watching the situation closely, Mason said. We will work as closely as possible with any member that is in financial distress. And, the advantages of being in a credit union are lower loan rates and typically higher savings rates, said Mason. BB&T Bank Financial Center Leader Eugene Yim agrees with Masons views. If people are having problems, they should go to their financial institution for help, said Yim. BB&T is offering deferrals, which are similar to skip a pay, and modifications for second mortgages, which extend the life of the loan, for those who need it. And, BB&T is interested in helping small businesses too. We still do financing for small businesses in and around the area. If a company is doing badly, we can help so they dont have to lay off anyone, said Yim. Additionally, BB&T has not As an Entitlement City, she says, the figure of 7.5 million dollars was determined based on the number of homes foreclosed. And, while the exact details of this program will be announced in the coming weeks, Ms. Smith did go on to say that the city is currently looking to acquire and rehab foreclosed homes, with the express purpose of stabilizing neighborhoods. This means a second chance at homeownershipaffordable homeownershipfor literally thousands displaced due to sub prime and adjustable rate mortgages, job loss and other factors. Back to Hope Now-an alliance between counselors, servicers, investors and other mortgage market participants, whose mission is to maximize the preservation of homeownership while minimizing foreclosures. During the period from July 2007 to July 2008, the Homeownership Preservation Foundation fielded over 900,000 calls and counseled 300,000 homeowners. In the 2nd Quarter of this year, the Hotline has received over 198,00 calls and counseled nearly 69,000 borrowers. In Florida, 126,000 Florida homeowners avoided foreclosure. Of those, more than 89,000 Florida homeowners were granted repayment plans: 28,327 prime borrowers and 60,760 sub prime borrowers. These numbers underscore the resources available to all homeowners who are facing the financial and emotional devastation of home foreclosure.

This is because they have the necessary reserve unlike many larger banks, according to Yim. Yim added that he thinks South Florida was affected most quickly because housing had appreciated the fastest. The faster it grows, the faster it falls. But we will come back up. We have a great location, great weather, and a lot of the cities in Broward are growing. It may not be a quick process, but we will come back up, said Yim. President of First Southeast Mortgage Corp., Scott Roberts looks at the glass half full, or in plumbing terms: the pipes still flowing. In every market, theres a low and right now, we are at a point in the stock market and every investment market, including real estate to have the biggest opportunity in our generation to invest and look forward to the appreciation of those assets sometime in the future, said Roberts. Additionally, Roberts said no one knows what will happen when $750 billion are kicked into the system. But, Roberts surmised, the markets are extremely volatile because of all the uncertainty. However, as a true believer in capitalism, Roberts said he is reassured that with the U.S. lubricating the wheels of investment, the economy will improve. On a personal level, Roberts is living in a condominium at the Radius that he purchased on the first day of the sale several years ago. With the Radius auctioning off 40 units at discounted prices, Roberts has concerns, but he remains optimistic. These units were never foreclosed. They just never closed. I am going to live there for many years and just like a stock, real estate is not sold at a loss until you sell it. Im going to utilize it and live there. Personally, I think the units are going to get bid up anyway, Roberts said.by Laura Burdick-Sherman Senior Correspondent We are at a point in every investment market, including real estate to have the biggest opportunity in our generation to invest and look forward to the appreciation of those assets sometime in the future.Scott Roberts, President First Southeast Mortgage Corp.
6 As Thanksgiving draws near, we reminisce about happy and comfortable times with family and friends. So for the month of November, I selected the warmest, most festive restaurant I could think of: The Ark. And, considering the delicious spread of coveted entrees offered at this Captains Table, if we all look beyond the holiday season with the same positive attitude, our ships are bound to come in. I first visited this Hollywood adjacent buffet a few years ago when my daughter went to school nearby, and was pretty much blown away by the dcor, the warmth and of course, the food. No wonder. The almost Disneyland Animal Kingdom motif, complete with hatched huts and ceiling, wooden booths with jungle themed giraffe and tiger decorated walls, and plush cushions, is very impressive. However, what really got my attention was one single coveted entre for which I had been seeking: broasted chicken. Virtually nonexistent in South Florida, its a rare treat to behold. (Delaware Farms actually began making and selling it only after asking permission and details from Ark owner Jim Kleinrichert). I know about broasted chicken because as a Midwestern native, we learned how to cook Alabama-style Southern fried chicken minus the grease. Using a very expensive specialized deep fryer called a broaster, the chicken heats at such a high temperature that the skin is amazingly crisp with little grease, and the inside of the chicken is moist and flavorful. But the cozy Ark atmosphere and the broasted chicken are only a couple of interesting attractions this popular restaurant offers. Equally intriguing is the variety of 300 some odd personalized plaques featuring names of friends, businesses and families. Whats wonderful about these plaques is that the $100 proceeds per plaque goes to help children at Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital, in memory of Ark owner Jim Kleinricherts young son James, who passed away at a young age from leukemia. With these plaques, and fundraising events and more, Kleinrichert has raised more than $5 million for the local hospital. Thats reason enough to give the place a whirl. With all this in mind, I brought my husband for a Friday evening dinner. Friday wasnt an arbitrary decision. I knew it was Rack of Lamb night, meaning lamb lovers like me are in for a cost-saving indulgence usually reserved for special occasions. As soon as we entered the warm, rustic interior, he checked out the welcoming bar on the left, the gargantuan lush spread in the center, and rushed to be seated. Again, not surprising. The evening salad bar is an awesome sight offering all the traditional salad bar fixings, complete with organic items, salad-green, yellow and orange, and complimented by an amazing mound of fresh black caviar. The gourmet addition comes at a weighty price, said Kleinrichert, but recognizing the sheer impressiveness of this delicacy has kept this attraction on the dinner menu, and its probably well spent. Another salad bar perk is the dressings are all fresh and made on the premises. (The horseradish, tartar, mustard sauce and cocktail sauces are also homemade, by the way). But once again, the salad bar is nothing compared to the rest of the offerings. I think its by far the best buffet in Broward County, said l5-year veteran waitperson Shelly Neifeld. There are a lot of reasons to agree. For instance, theres the expansive chilled seafood bar spilling over with oysters, raw muscles, Jonas stone crabs, snow crab, whole poached salmon, smoked whitefish and large peel and eat shrimp. Im not a crab lover, but Ive got to tell you the hot steamed, tender, fresh tasting cooked crab legs with warm drawn butter are reason alone to go to the buffet. The succulent peel and eat shrimp are another featured attraction, and its not unusual to see man, woman and child piling on heaping portions of seafood, and returning for more. I saw a father offer friendly fatherly advice as he hurriedly threw a triple layer of crab legs to his already overflowing plate, Honey, make sure you take more shrimp and crab legs. Good advice, of course, considering the cost of buying any of these items at a markets, but not necessary. The bins never seem to run out. Another unusual visual are the gooey garlic rolls and top-heavy multicolored ice-cream-like mounds of strawberry, garlic, maple walnut and plain mounds of butter made fresh daily. Although not baked there, the rolls are doctored up with garlic and cheese, and to be honest, I ate more than my fair share. Still, the endless portions of perfectly cooked entrees and amazing desserts probably are what really drive traffic to this festive eaterys success. For one, comfort food is offered fearlessly here, and warm dishes that thaw hearts and bodies of those living in below zero are king here. Were talking meatloaf, chicken croquettes (with cream gravy), fried fish, fried zucchini, candied yams, spaghetti and meat sauce, Buffalo wings, homemade chicken noodle soup and more. But The Ark isnt afraid to mix and match, and items like Turkey egg rolls and other variations on a theme show up on a daily basis. Perhaps even better, the carving station exceeds anyones standard. Two carved meats: prime rib and roast turkey are always there for the taking. A third meat is added nightly. The Friday night rack of lamb is understandably the most popular draw. Perfectly cooked, pink on the inside, and brown on the outside, the lamb was moist, tender and non-mutinous. The prime rib met the same qualifications: medium rare to well done but each slice was tender and juicy. Ditto on the ham. Lunch buffet, while minus the rack of lamb, and scaled down, offers broasted chicken, red meat options like huge beef ribs(tasty, not fatty, meaty), flavorful leg of lamb at the carving station along with the prime rib, ham, and turkey, all for the bargain price of $10.95. Dessert is no less of a thrill. Again, for a native Midwesterner, this place conjures up more memories than a snowplow of ice, and a lot better. Bread pudding, apple, peach, and cherry cobbler all warm and homemade, six varieties of ice cream, homemade rice pudding with raisons (delicious), flan, fresh-baked brownies, cakes, and more crowd the dessert station, with constant replenishing. They have an incredible hot vat of both hot fudge and hot caramel, both of which I actually labeled onto a dish and spooned solitarily into my mouth (loved every lick). But there are those who come just for the drinks, and that too makes sense. The outstretched heavily-trafficked and drink-loaded full bar offers just about any drink you can think of. I sampled the chocolate rimmed (yum!), Baileys, chocolate syrup, and vodka Ark Fudgy Martini $6 (Happy Hour price), and I was forever hooked. But, the Fudgy has a lot of liquid competition to entice a regular crowd. And, since discounted drinks come with plenty of warm appetizers to warm patrons, and Happy Hour runs from 11:30 am 7 pm, theres plenty of reason to be happy at the Arks bar. If I havent convinced you yet; Ive convinced myself with all the retelling. The fact is I dont think Ill be able to hold out til Thanksgiving is here. The question is: Why would I want to?

humans. It definitely takes a lot of work and a lot of dedication, said herpetology enthusiast Scott Fallick, who counts four large lizards and other reptiles among the more than two dozen critters that share his house and yard. When the cute baby lizards from the local pet shop reach lengths of 6 feet or more and weigh upwards of 20 pounds, some owners opt to let the giant creatures fend for themselves. Because the green iguana is not native to the United States, some naturalists fear that its introduction into the South Florida habitat could cause damage to the natural ecosystem. Closer to home, this invasive species is already a serious nuisance. Broward residents complaints about the fruit-, flowerand leaf-eating lizard range from decimation of ornamental vegetation to defecation in backyard swimming pools. Iguanas also dig nesting burrows that can undermine foundations, sidewalks and sea walls, according to the Green Iguana Society. The wild iguana population in Broward County, a mix of former pets and their offspring, has been estimated in the thousands. Although it is illegal in Florida to release pet iguanas or any nonnative species into the wild, enforcement is difficult. Last month, the Broward County Commission unanimously approved a resolution urging the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to help control South Floridas escalating green iguana population by classifying iguanas as reptiles of concern. This is about protecting plant life and communities that have complained about iguana overpopulations, said Broward County Mayor Lois Wexler. If green iguanas were to be designated as reptiles of concern, all Florida buyers would be required to obtain a $100 permit and implant a microchip to let authorities easily identify an abandoned pets owner. Its very frustrating to me that there are people who take these animals into their home and then their solution is to just let them go free and create problems for other individuals, said Commissioner Ilene Lieberman. Despite pressure from other Florida counties and municipalities and the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida (ARFF), the wildlife commission has been reluctant to add iguanas to the list of reptiles of concern, which include certain pythons, the green anaconda and the Nile monitor lizard. Those who support the designation say that making it harder and more expensive to obtain iguanas would cut down on the number of impulse purchases. But given the current iguana invasion in Broward County, the proposed measures may be a matter of too little, too late, according to some lizard-lovers. Its a step in the right direction, Fallick said. But with the amount of iguanas that are out there [in the wild] right now, its really an issue of the number of iguanas that are breeding out there. Fallick believes that controlling the iguana population should be as much a reactive solution as a proactive one. As a biology student at Broward College, Fallicks research on the feral iguana problem in Brevard County pointed to the need to curb the lizards growing numbers through humanely trapping and neutering the males, then releasing them back into the wild. Fallick hopes to generate community interest in establishing an iguana sterilization program for abandoned critters in Broward County. In the meantime, there are certain measures homeowners can take to keep their back yard iguana-free. Fallick suggests spreading mothballs around the perimeter of yards, which will repel reptiles (including snakes) without causing them or the environment any harm. Above all, never feed one of these scaly green visitors, or it will become a permanent resident of your back yard. If all else fails, professional critter trappers charge upwards of $25 to remove a feral iguana from private property. Under state anticruelty laws, only live traps and snares can be used. The Wildlife Care Center in Fort Lauderdale will not remove or receive nuisance iguanas. While some people find these colorful tropical lizards to be a beautiful addition to the South Florida landscape, the bottom line is that without enough predators to keep their populations in check, there is no balanced place in the ecosystem for these exotic reptiles, despite their easy adaptability to our subtropical environment. They dont belong here, Fallick said. Two weeks ago I went to see one of my favorite moti vational speakers and personal devel opment gurus-Les Brown. If you havent heard of him I encourage you to youtube his workHe Rocks! Anyway, Les, who never fails to give me goose bumps when he speaks, said one thing in par ticular that really resonated with me: He said, If you do whats hard, your life will be easy. If you do whats easy your life will be hard. WOW! What a simple, yet profoundly true statement, and it applies well to most peoples attitude toward their health and Making time to workout after a hard day of work is HARD. Waking up an hour early to take a walk or plan healthy meals for the day is HARD. Food journaling and eating every 3 hours is HARD. Endless reps of pushups, squats and lunges are HARD. Skipping dessert and the glass of wine at dinner is often HARD. But... in the long run, doing these things will make your life much easier Giving you more energy to spend quality time with your family and friends Enhancing your self esteem and Having to spend less money on buying bigger clothes Eliminating the toxic medica tions you take to control blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol Improving the your quality of life ...and the list goes on. The bottom line is this:, eating right, exercising regularly, and taking time for yourself IS sometimes HARD, but the the discomfort and challenges you feel in the moment.

9 The fiscal year 2009 budget has been approved by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners and Im proud to announce that the $3.6 billion total budget provides for a property tax rate that decreases 7% from the state-mandated rolledback rate. The rolledback rate is basically the property tax rate that generates the same amount of property taxes as the previous year. This was a particularly challenging task. Home values plunged and taxpayers sent a clear message that they wanted property tax cuts when they overwhelmingly passed Amendment 1 in February. Following the clear will of the people, the Commission worked throughout the year to fill an $87-million dollar gap in the budget. This follows precedent setting budget cuts of more than $90-million the year before. Budget cuts made for fiscal year 2009 will reduce the county tax portion of your bill by $96 if you have a homesteaded property and $90 on non-homesteaded properties. In order to meet the demands of Amendment 1, the Commission reduced the hours of some county libraries and closed most county parks on Tuesdays, the day when attendance at county parks is typically low. We also reduced or modified a number of bus routes that were underutilized. Agencies and departments within county government were drastically consolidated in order to cut administrative costs. I believe that when the economy suffers there is typically a greater need for human services, fortunately our social safety net has been maintained in order to provide services for those most in need. Its important to understand that about 62% of the general fund budget, or $795 million, comes from property taxes. Roughly half of that money finances the Broward Sheriffs Office, Supervisor of Elections and Property Appraisers Office. The remainder finances county services such as parks, libraries, public transportation and human services. While the County Commission is charged with collecting all property taxes from Broward County residents, we are only one of more than 80 entities in the county with the authority to impose a tax on your property. If you take a close look at your tax bill, you will see that your property is taxed by a number of other entities, including the municipalities, the Broward County School Board, hospital districts, water districts, etc. So while the county portion of tax bill was reduced, these other taxing authorities may have imposed additional taxes on your property and that could impact your tax bill. Broward County has always been fiscally conservative and our millage rate has been lowered or has remained the same for the past decade.

Hollywood Young Professionals get up Take advantage of the free services onlineat www.hollywoodgazette.com District/Neighborhood Community Forums and much more!Hollywood residents will have a convenient and free way to dispose of used electronics and household hazardous waste at the Anne Kolb Nature Center on Sunday, December 7. The event is from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is sponsored by the Nature Center, Broward County Waste and Recycling Services and Partner Cities. The Nature Center is located at 751 Sheridan Street. Used electronics contain valuable materials that can be recycled, such as gold, copper and steel. But they may also contain harmful toxins including mercury, lead and cadmium. The EPA says that as much as 70 percent of heavy metal found in landfills comes from electronics. It is also estimated that 2.2 million tons of electronic waste is discarded every year. Broward County has partnered with the Achievement and Rehabilitation Centers, Inc. (ARC) to safely divert end-of-life electronics out of the garbage and into an eco-friendly recycling system. All collected materials are recycled, refurbished or disposed of in an environmentally safe manner by ARC. Household hazardous waste such as paint, oil, pesticides, lawn and pool chemicals, fire extinguishers, mercury thermostats and CFL bulbs will also be collected and either recycled or disposed of according to E.P.A. guidelines.

by Caron Conway Lead Correspondent To scoop or not to scoop? That is a question many dog owners fail to answer responsibly as they accompany Fido on his daily rounds. According to several studies, roughly 40 percent of Americans do not clean up after their dogs. When surveyed, the reasons they give range from embarrassment to laziness to outright ignorance. Some people believe that dog waste makes good fertilizer, that it deteriorates very rapidly, that it is basically harmless, or that a small dog produces too little waste to worry about. Wrong on all counts. In fact, in 1991 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared pet waste a non-point source pollution, which puts doggie doo in the same category as oil and toxic chemicals. It has long been known that excrement from animals including birds, wildlife, livestock and, yes, even pets can have a negative impact on the environment by contributing to water pollution through stormwater runoff. Stormwater is water from rain that flows according to the laws of gravity from rooftops, over paved streets and sidewalks, across parking lots and bare soil, and through lawns and storm drains. As this runoff flows, it collects and transports soil, pesticides, fertilizer, oil and grease, litter, pet waste and other pollutants, until it drains into nearby bodies of water, where it can harm plants, fish and wildlife, and contaminate swimming and fishing recreational areas. As the EPA points out, pet waste contains nutrients that encourage excess weed and algae growth, which turns water cloudy and green. When pet waste is washed into lakes and waterways, the waste decays and the organisms thrive, limiting the amount of light that can penetrate the waters surface. As a result, oxygen levels in the water decrease, which can asphyxiate fish and other aquatic life. The pollutants in stormwater runoff also can flow into sinkholes and infiltrate the underground aquifer. Research has shown that pets, particularly dogs, are significant contributors to source water contamination, according to the EPA. If not disposed of properly, pet waste flows directly into waterways, untreated. Even a single small canine can, over time, make a sizable contribution to water pollution, producing a half-pound of waste per day, or about 183 pounds over the course of a year, according to professional pooper scooper services. Take into consideration these statistics from the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association: Four in 10 U.S. households include at least one dog, for a total of 68 million canines in 2000. And of that total, 45 percent were large dogs weighing 40 pounds or more. As unappealing as piles of dog waste on neighborhood sidewalks and lawns may look, its even more unpleasant to step in it. But proper disposal of dog waste is more than a sound environmental measure or good petiquette its also a good hygiene practice, especially in your own back yard. When pet waste is disposed of improperly, water quality isnt the only thing that suffers your health may be at risk, too, states the EPA. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dog droppings contain harmful bacteria and organisms that can contribute to a variety of diseases animals pass to humans, called zoonoses. It is estimated that a single gram of dog excrement can contain 23 million fecal coliform bacteria, which are known to cause cramps, diarrhea, intestinal illness and kidney disorders in humans. Human waste also contains coliforms but, as sewage, is treated at wastewater treatment plants, unlike doggie deposits in the great outdoors. When infected dog poop is left on your lawn, the bacteria and viruses not only survive but thrive. The eggs of parasites can linger in the soil for years, potentially infecting anyone who comes into contact with that soil, including children playing outside, adults working in the garden and even pets hanging out in the yard. Infections from these parasites often cause fever, muscle aches, headache, vomiting and diarrhea in humans. Composting does not kill the disease-causing organisms that live in pet excrement. And as for the old wives tale about doggie doo being an excellent fertilizer well, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, it is actually toxic to lawns, causing burns and unsightly discoloring. The solution to these aesthetic, health and environmental concerns is a simple and inexpensive one that comes in the form of a disposable doggie bag. And yet, as the EPA states, The reluctance of many residents to handle dog waste is the biggest limitation to controlling pet waste. While irresponsible pet owners may desecrate their own neighborhood without a second thought, such is not the case in areas that are specially designated for the dog-loving public. In Hollywood, there are several dogfriendly parks where proper petiquette on the part of human companions is the rule rather than the exception. The creation of the successful Dog Beach of Hollywood, a 100-yard stretch of sand and surf about a halfmile north of Sheridan Street, did not come without its share of controversy. A handful of opponents expressed environmental, safety and health concerns, including potential sand contamination from dog waste. But Chuck Ellis, Hollywoods parks and recreation director, said his experience with dog parks showed that they often police themselves. To keep the beach free of animal waste, pet owners are required to carry disposable doggie bags. Dog Beach of Hollywood is open from 3 to 7 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between Pershing and Custer streets. Passes are available for purchase onsite.

19 The City of Hollywood recently honored Nativity School with a special Proclamation at City Hall on Wednesday, October 15. The Proclamation recognizes Nativitys mission and beliefs, along with its students accomplishments in math, science and sports. It was a great pleasure recognizing Nativitys accomplishments in the community. Nativity graduates have done great things in this city, and the children of today will be the mayors and city commissioners of the future. Recognizing educational achievement is one of my most important goals as mayor, said Mayor Peter Bober. Nativity had 36 students, along with parents, administrators, teachers and coaches, attend the Proclamation at City Hall. Nativity is a very special place filled with school spirit and student pride, explained Victor DeBianchi, 8th grader and student council president. Its at the Jamboree, the pep-rallies, the bingo nights and the family masses, but its also in the lunch room, at recess, and in each and every classroom. Its a privilege to be part of Nativity and an honor to be here today representing my school. City of Hollywood honors Nativity School with Proclamation Art Exhibit at ACCH 16th.
Legal defense against foreclosureFORECLOSURE is life-altering to many who thought it would never happen to them but who find themselves faced with suit papers. Foreclosure is no longer limited to situations of unexpected financial disaster. It continues to spread like cancer through our communities, with the Broward Circuit Court alone continuing to report thousands of new foreclosures. Alas, we all know the problem. People now ask, are there solutions? Thankfully, yes, but beware of the predatory companies that offer you easy solutions through foreclosure assistance. Just recently, more individuals were criminally indicted on fraud charges by promising quickfix schemes to avert foreclosure. Owners complained that the individuals promised to take care of the foreclosure problem in exchange for a portion of the mortgage payment. They took the money but did nothing to respond to the foreclosures. Bankruptcy is often seen as a real, immediate solution, however it only delays the inevitable foreclosure. A more permanent solution is to seek credit counseling through a licensed agency or attorney experienced in helping distressed homeowners to control the liabilities causing insolvency. Under the Homeownership Counseling Act, the owner is entitled to counseling if he fails to pay any amount by the due date under the home loan. If the threat of foreclosure has been diagnosed in time, then the owner has a very good chance of avoiding foreclosure by working with counselors and the bank to get him back on track and allow him to keep his house. There are times when the owner just cant avoid foreclosure. Once filed, the focus turns to finding a lawyer to defend the foreclosure on two levels. Defenses exist under state and federal laws including the Truth in Lending Act, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act, the Fair Housing Act, Floridas usury statutes, and the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. Other defenses include failure to have possession of the original promissory note, that the note and/or mortgage are defective in some way, failure to comply with preconditions to suit such as single-family default loan servicing requirements, and failure of good faith and fair dealing. The lender also may have made mistakes in the loan documents which would allow the owner to renegotiate the loan or even win the foreclosure case. This list is not exhaustive. If the house is to be lost, the owner must also defend the banks effort to obtain a deficiency judgment for what remains unpaid after the house is sold. Adding insult to injury, the owner faces not only loss of his home, but a judgment for the unpaid balance of the note including additional charges for attorneys fees, court costs and interest. A deficiency judgment can be minimized or avoided if the bank has not acted fairly with the owner, such as where the bank prevents a short sale that would have resulted in more money to the bank than the foreclosure sale itself. If you are reading this article with interest, you should pursue your questions with qualified legal counsel. While the threat of foreclosure should not be minimized, it is not a hopeless situation by any means if you work with counsel to remedy the causes leading to the potential foreclosure situation. If foreclosure has already been filed, act swiftly to seek legal advice. If you do so, you may be able to prevent foreclosure or avoid an expensive deficiency judgment on top of the foreclosure.

Place turkey in sink. Remove giblets & neck. Rinse with cool water. Season cavity with salt & pepper or other seasonings if you prefer. Place turkey in oven in an open pan, preferably on a rack, breast side up Add a little water (1 to 2 cups) to the roasting pan for drippings. Oven thermostats vary so if turkey is getting too brown turn temperature lower. If its not getting brown enough, raise temperature in oven. NO BASTING is needed for our Fresh Turkeys. Roasting Timetable: 8-10 lbs 2 to 2 hours 12-14lbs 3 to 3 hours 14-18lbs 3-3 1/2hrs 18-22lbs 2-1/2 3 hours 22-25lbs 3 to 4 hours over 25 lbs 3 -4 hrs We strongly suggest roasting your turkeys unstuffed. When you stuff a turkey the air flow through the cavity is restricted and the turkey will take longer to cook. If you must stuff your turkey, stuff loosely & add approximately one hour to cooking time. Remember oven temperatures vary & these are approximate cooking time. Watch turkey carefully the last hour & test for doneness every 15 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK!! Let turkey set for 20 to 40 minutes after removing from oven before slicing. This allows the juices to settle and will make slicing much easier and meat will not string. T URKEY G RAVY Transfer drippings from cooked turkey to saucepan. Remove some of the fat. Place saucepan over medium heat. For each cup of drippings whisk in to 1/3 cup of flour. Whisk until smooth; then slowly add approximately 1 cup turkey or chicken broth. Bring to a slow boil and serve warm. Using the pan drippings give the gravy a deep rich brown color. TESTING FOR DONENESS The most accurate way to test for doneness is with a meat thermometerPlace in the thigh muscle it will register 175 degrees when done. If thermometer is not used push tip of knife into thickest part of turkey (inside thigh muscle where leg joins turkey body)-Rotate knife halfway-if juice has red tinge continue cooking. If juice is clear or golden in color-turkey is done. If the bird is stuffed, place thermometer in center of the stuffing. Thermometer will register 165 degrees when done. OUR SUGGESTIONS We suggest roasting all poultry unstuffed. This will insure bird being cooked to perfection. Turkeys that are stuffed usually wind up overcooked, because the heat cant circulate and the bird is overdone on the outside. If you want the flavor of the turkey in your stuffing buy extra backs and wings. The cost is minimal & we will chop the backs for you to make them easier for you to handle. Put chopped backs & wings in a pot with water. A good rule of thumb is 1 to 2 quarts of water to each back & wing combination. You may add a small cut up onion, stalk of celery, and a carrot for each back & wing combination. Bring to a boil & cook about an hour. Let cool. Strain through cheesecloth. Pick meat from bones. Discard skin. Use broth & meat which you have removed from back & wings to moisten stuffing. Bake stuffing separately. Let turkey set for 20 to 40 minutes after removing from oven before slicing. This allows the juices to settle and will make slicing much easier and meat will not string. 5lbs 9lbs 2 to 2 hours 9lbs-11 lbs 2 to 3 hours 11lbs & over 3-4 hours Turkey tips from the experts at Delaware Chicken Farm Delaware Chicken Farm & Seafood Market is located at 4191 North State Road 7 (441).
