Technicalities are all that remain for developers to have guidelines for future development said city spokesper son Raelin Storey. City Commissioners voted to adopt the citys Downtown Hollywood Master Plan at a special meet ing held on April 15. Downtown CRA Executive Director T. Neil Fritz and the citys Department of Planning also green lighted the plan. What the Commission did last night was say this is our vision, and this is what we think should be developed around the circle and within the down town CRA area. Now it will be very clear to developers with zoning in place. Zoning was outdated, and developers wanted to be able to do much more than existing zoning allowed. We are updat ing the whole zoning code so it will area to look like, said Storey. She said Commissioners asked Zon ing staff to begin right away working on zoning regulations, and to eliminate planned development until the new code is in place. Once the code is in place, said Storey, any proposed plan that comes forward will be measured against the existing zoning and pending zoning. The more stringent of the two would be fol lowed, she said. The HOTGolf Project was consid ered exempt, said City Commissioner Richard Blattner. According to Neil Fritz, the HOTGolf Project is a project called Hollywood on The Golf proposed for Block 53 and has been through technical advisory at the city. The parcel lies between Taylor and Filmore streets on the east side of Federal Highway. eliminating Planned Development until zoning regulations are in place, and why the HOTGolf project was considered to be exempt. By eliminating PD [Planned De velopment], the value of land becomes based on what can be built on in that is in accordance with the zoning. That is in contrast to someone buying property or assembling parcels and then coming to the city for approval to build some the land.

FOR DAILY NEWS UPDATES, VISIT 10 by Caron Conway Lead Correspondent This Mothers Day holds special sig wood branch of ChildNet as she celebrates the recent adoption of her daughter. welcomed little Mya into their home and their hearts as a foster child through ChildNet in May 2008, just four days after Mothers Day. Mya, who turned 2 in daughter March 20. As the child advocate supervisor at ChildNets South Service Center, Kelly was well aware of the need for stable, loving homes for Broward Countys most vulnerable children. ChildNet, a private, the state to serve as the local communitybased care lead agency, protects abused, abandoned and neglected youngsters, helping to place them with temporary and permanent families. Years ago, Kelly had taken classes to become a foster parent, but it wasnt until she met Sergino, who shared her interest in fostering and adoption, that her plans began to take shape. The couple attended classes together and were still newlyweds, only six weeks into their marriage, when the call came in from Kids In Distress: We have a child who needs a home. The same day we said yes, we got her, recalled Kelly, who had only a couple of hours to prepare for Myas arrival. When they got the call, the only baby item in their home was a crib that Kelly fortuitously decided to put together the week before. Mya came to her new family at the age of 18 months after stays in a couple of other foster homes. She threw tan trums and had a hard time warming up to Sergino. It was an adjustment period for a while, said Kelly. But we stuck through it, and we really fell in love with her. Despite her training as a child advo cate, that human emotion takes over, Kelly said, and she feared that they might not be able to keep Mya permanently. The tion, Kelly said a big weight was sud denly lifted. Mya became their daughter in every sense of the word on paper as well as in their hearts. Creating happy endings for Browards special needs children is the mission of ChildNet. These are youngsters who of reasons, because of their age, ethnic background, an emotional or physical diagnosis, or in the case of sibling groups, according to ChildNet adoption specialist Annabelle Ang. Theres a great, great need for com mitted and understanding parents, she said. Children over the age of 5 are much toddlers, and teen-agers are the least adoptable age group. Its a shame, Ang said, because all of us, despite our age, have a lifelong need for a family. For every child who is placed in a permanent home, There are 10 others that are languishing year after year, Ang said. We know the success stories the home and then you think of all the oth ers. The process for adoptive parents begins with an orientation meeting, fol lowed by a 30-hour training and prepara tion course. Once a home study has been approved, prospective parents can learn about and meet children available for adoption. After a match has been made and visits have taken place, the child is placed in the home for a supervision pe riod of at least 90 days. When the childs counselor gives consent to adopt, a hearing before a judge is scheduled to legalize the adoption. The process takes about a year or less from sitting in the classroom to sitting in the courtroom getting their adoption or der, Ang said. The timeframe is tailored to the needs of the child, and we are here to meet the needs of the child. Parents bear no out-of-pocket expens es in the adoption process, and their child receives a free college education at a state school. ChildNet also offers post-adoption support services and community resources for those parents who want them. This Mothers Day, the best presents are those that cannot be found in a store, that have no price tag. For Mya, those priceless gifts are two loving parents who absolutely dote over her 24 hours a day, said Kelly. We are her forever family. For more information on fostering or adopting a special needs child, call Child 6000 or visit www.childnet.us.

In order to qualify to compete, the band, comprised of students in 9th through 12th grade, earned a superior rating at their district competition earlier this year. Im proud of the prog ress the band has made this year, said Chandler Wilson, the new band director at Hills High. Ive watched them grow from playing only a few scales, to becoming masters of their instruments in a very short time, added Wilson. Wilson a graduate in music education from FAMU, is credited with inspiring the students to reach new heights. These kids are great. They are motivated, inspired, and are having fun while developing skills that will last a lifetime including team work and discipline, said Wilson who currently directs 70 students and is hoping to have a band of 250 members within 4 years. As with many arts programs nationwide, the band isnt without its obstacles. They depend on numerous year round fund raisers such as car washes and cookie dough sales to pay for transportation to and from school football games, community events, and competitions. Most often there isnt enough money left for food, drink and other incidentals. Hollywood Hills was one of the few bands nation wide invited to play during the Orange Bowl festivities this year, but unfortunately we had to decline due to lack of funds to partici pate, said Cassandra Albizu, President of the Hills High Band Parent Association. It is sad and frustrating at times, added Albizu, who also stated, Getting to state competition near Sarasota was a real challenge. We couldnt afford to stay overnight, so we left at 3 a.m. hoping to arrive in time to feed the kids, get them in uniform, and rehearse before the 9:30 a.m. time slot. Unfor tunately, the bus broke down mid route. A replacement bus arrived giving us just enough time to get in uniform and com pete. The kids played their hearts out, and did an outstanding job, even though most had been awake all night! As the school year winds down Mr. Wilson and the students are looking for ward to next year and hoping to be able to say yes to the numerous invitations he receives to perform.. My vision is to have a marching band of 100 mem bers, participate in the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville this winter, and to be able to provide each band member with an instrument, said Wilson. We are currently in need of clarinets, trumpets, tubas, trombones and well just about everything, he added. The Hollywood Hills High School band can be seen and heard on YouTube.com rehearsing the Billboard March for competition. If youd like to request a performance for your organization or school, please contact Mr. Wilson at Chandler.Wilson@BrowardSchools.com or by calling 754-323-1050 x2030. If you would like to make a donation to the band or sponsor an event, please send an email to Bonnie@BonnieKaufman.com.New teen program kicks o at MLK CenterHills band shines despite obstaclesCollege corner Family of Humanity, Inc.

FOR DAILY NEWS UPDATES, VISIT 22 ART & CULTURE BUSINESS COMMUNITY EVENTS FOOD HEALTH MONEY OPINION PEOPLE PETS In my practice as a general Internist I fre quently encounter a de bilitating condition that affects mostly my elderly patients. This condition is known as Shingles. Shingles (Herpes Zoster) is a painful condition caused by reactivation of an old chickenpox infection which has remained dormant at the base of a sensory nerve. It usually begins as an uncomfortable or painful sensation which may vary from itching, tingling, or burning, to a very severe aching, boring, or lancinating pain. After a few days a rash consisting of small round blisters on a reddened base erupts on the skin where the nerve travels. It almost always occurs on just one side of the body. It is most common on the trunk (50%-70% of cases), and around the eye (10-15% of cases). Over a period of 7-10 days the rash progresses from red blotches to crusted lesions which may last for 2-3 weeks. In most people it reaches its maxi mal intensity during the second week and then decreases. Shingles is much more common and severe in older individuals. Over 1 mil lion new cases occur in the United States each year with more than 50% occurring in people over the age of 60. It is not acquired by contact with other people with Shingles, but only by reactivation of an old infection. People who live to age 85 have a 50% chance of contracting Shingles during their lifetime. Pain and discomfort is the major complication of Shingles. Other complications may include blindness in those whose eye is affected, nerve damage, deafness, encephalitis, hepatitis, and scarring. These complications are more common in the elderly. The most common debilitating com plication is pain which persists for more than 90 days after the rash is gone. This is called Postherpetic Neuralgia. It may persist for months, sometimes years and then decline with time. The pain can be severe and has resulted in suicide in some individuals. Treatment for Shingles is available. Oral antiviral medication given within 72 hours of the appearance of the rash duration of the outbreak. It may also reduce the risk of developing Postherpetic Neuralgia. The sooner this medication is started, the better. It is given for 7-10 days. Steroids can produce some improve ment in the healing and the acute pain, but may also cause undesirable side effects in some individuals. Narcotic analgesics can also be prescribed to help the pain. Treatments for people who do de velop Postherpetic neuralgia are compli cated, not always effective, and frequently associated with adverse effects. PrevenIn May, 2006, the FDA approved a vaccine called Zostavax for people 60 years old and older. In June of 2008 the mendation for these same people, whether they have had Shingles or not. The vac cine decreases the incidence of Shingles by 51.3%, and Postherpetic Neuralgia by 66.5%. The vaccine is given as a single dose. It is stored frozen and must be given within 30 minutes of reconstituting from the freezer. Relatively few people are unable to receive the vaccine, either due to an allergy to its components, or to an impaired immune system. The average wholesale cost of the vaccine is $150-$200 dollars. Those with Part D Medicare can be reimbursed. Cov erage by private insurance is determined plan by plan. It is estimated that if used as recommended the vaccine will decrease the number of new cases in the US by more than 280,000 annually. My recommendation for people over the age of 60 is to ask their physician for the vaccine, even if they must pay for it themselves.Dr. Wilbur practices at Safecare Medical Centers Ive always wanted to spend April in Paris. I wasnt lucky enough to do so this year, but I did at Restaurateur and Chef Laurent Tasics Hollywood offshoot: Sage Caf and Oyster Bar. After 18 years in Ft. Lauderdale, and res taurants in Paris, Monaco, and French Antilles, Tasic knows how to make French ily for Thanksgiving. We raved about the wonderful place with reasonable prices. With the rush of daily life, I completely forgot about Sage until some one recently reminded me. I returned, and I guarantee I wont forget again. Sunday brunch is foremost on my mind (and my stomach) so Ill start there. Replete with high-end, low-cost choices, brunch includes a complimen tary Mimosa, and some of the best South Florida cuisine Pain Perdu ($7.50), was the best French toast Ive ever tried. Crunchy on the outside, exceptionally moist on the inside, the just sugary enough Maple Sugar is a must have. My husband, Mark, ordered the Salmon St. Charles ($12), and couldnt stop raving. The perfectly grilled fresh, poached to precision, and the hollandaise was creamy and delicate with just enough plumpness. Every Sunday, theres a Rti Du Dimanche (Sunday Roast) and I scored with the Slowly Braised Lamb Shank soaked in a rich red wine sauce, accompanied by creamy but hearty, homemade mashed potatoes ($15). Luxuriously drenched in red wine, the fall-off-the-bone meat was Ive ever had. And, since all their meat is organic, you know youre eating top quality. Regardless of what you eat, the fabulous food, live jazz by sax player Dan Murphy, and a breezy, upscale ambiance make this Sunday brunch one of the best ways to treat ourselves at the end of a long week. The French wine list is so extensive that red wines are broken down into Left and Right Bank Bordeaux, Burgundy and Beaujolais, Rhone Valley and Southern France. Prices range from $8 a glass to $125 for Vieux Telegraphe Cha teauneuf du Pape, but Chilean Clos Apalta -05, Casa Lapostolle tops the wine list at $225. To honor my mother for Mothers Day, I tried her favorite cut, Filet Mignon au Poivre ($29). This 10 oz. cut of organic (delicious), roasted red sliced potatoes and fresh vegetables (changes nightly). To dine at Sage without a Crepe seems a sin, especially with the numerous meal crepes such as Crepe Suzanne ($11), Crepe Diane ($13), and several others. But it was dessert we were after, so compli menting my delicious decaf coffee, Sabrina and I shared a Bananas Foster Crepe ($7), featuring a crepe second to none, sugar topped by vanilla ice cream. in the middle of downtown, the question is not going to be if Ill be backit will always be when. And, if I participate in Sages upcoming French wine contest, and purchase a bottle of Jean-Luc Colombo Cotes du Rhone or Laboure-Roi, MaconVillages Saint Armand for only $27 per bottle, I can hope to win their free trip to Paris. Maybe April in Paris isnt so far away after all. Shingles now preventableSage Caf: a little bit of Paris in Hollywood BY RICHARD J.

The body of the message read, My mother wanted me to let you know her husband Gerry passed away a few minutes ago at their home in Hollywood. Dad -being both a rationally thinking scientist by training, plus always wanting control of everything -actually helped write his own suggested obitu ary nearly a month ago. Below is a portion of the obituary written by Gerry Gunzberger. Retired plastics manufacturing execu tive, chemist, and community activist Gerry Gunzburger died Thursday at his home in Hol lywood, Florida. Gunzburger was the husband of County Commissioner Sue Gunzburger. He was 77 years old. Gunzburger was born in Berlin, Ger many, in 1931. He came from a family of very cosmopolitan assimilated Jews a family which had lived in Germany for hundreds of years. As the Nazi threats against the Jews Germany in late 1936. His grandmother and aunt, who opted instead to stay in Berlin, both perished in the Holocaust. were detained on arrival at the airport, denied asylum, and forced to leave the country within one day. Next came six months living in Norway, before eventually obtaining visas to live in France. The family arrived in Paris in 1937, and found safety there until the Nazis invaded France in 1940. Separated from his father, Gunzburger and his mother were able to escape Paris on one of the last trains out of the city on June 13, 1940, just hours before the Nazi troops marched into the city the next morning. The train was strafed by German reaching Frances western seacoast. Gunzburger and his mother then hitchhiked south in a French Army truck in a mad dash to escape the advancing German troops. When France surrendered to the Nazis, Gunzburger and his mother found themselves trapped on the German side of the lines. A French Air Force the next day into unoccupied Vichy France. After being reunited with his father, the family moved to the southern port city of Marseilles. Despite having a relative in the United States willing to act as the sponsor, the family was unable to obtain a visa to emigrate to the U.S., which strictly limited the number of European Jews allowed to seek safety here. Finally, after narrowly escaping arrest by the French Gesta po, Gunzburger was able to obtain Colombian visas for his entire family from the father of his best friend in parochial school. The boys father was the Consul General of Colombia in Marseilles. They arrived in Bogota, Colombia with just $300 and started rebuilding their lives. Gunzburgers parents worked to create a clothing business, starting in their own home. Gunzburgers small bedroom doubled by day as the sewing machine room. In time, the busi ness became rather successful. As for Gunzburger, he attended the nations top university -Universidad Nacional de Colombia -and earned his bachelors degree in chemistry. He also spent his free time in Colombia racing motorcycles and cars, winning several trophies 1950s.Gunzberger dies at 77 RETRACTION: Read the entire obituary and post your comments online at www.hollywoodgazette.comGerry Gunzberger (1931-2009)

Its what makes blackjack the most involving and popular table game in the casino. However, some blackjack players, especially beginners, are unsure about the most elementary aspects of the game. So, to set up the coming articles on basic blackjack strategy, well cover a few basic dos and donts to keep in mind as we progress further. What Is The Objective Of The Game? The aim is to beat the dealer. Seems obvious, doesnt it? But, there are two routes to consider. One way is drawing cards until the total adds up to 21, or as close as you can get without busting. If you wind up with win. A tie is called a push, and no one wins or loses. However, the second important objective strategy is to recognize that when the the dealer shows a weak upcard (2-6) he is is in a potentially breaking situation. In that event, you do not draw. You stand pat. According to casino rules, the dealer must hit and is more likely to bust, (go over 21) and if he busts, you win the hand as long as you havent broken as well. This the players big stick. The Casinos Advantage. The dealer has no options, at all, and must play of rules. However, he or she has one advantage, and its a big one! If you draw cards and bust, the dealer collects your cards and your money! It doesnt matter if the dealer eventu ally busts too. Your money is gone! This single rule gives the casino its most powerful edge vs. the player. But perfect basic play will get you close to evening up the odds. Card Values. All picture cards count as 10; all numbered cards count as their actual value. The Ace is differ ent. Depending on the strategy called for, it can count either as a 1 or an 11. a numbered card, you have a soft hand. What is a Blackjack? or an Ace-picture, you have a natural 21 and have won all the marbles! And you get paid 3 to 2 in many casinos, Unless the dealer also has blackjack. In that case, you and the dealer tie (in casino lingo, a push.), and no money changes hands. The Deal. The dealer starts with the player on his left and continues dealing around, including herself., until everyone has two cards. The dealers called the hole card) and the other card facing up (called the upcard). When all the initial cards are dealt out, the dealer for the players decision Hit or Stand Signals. Its is very important to be crystal clear as to your intentions. Where cards are dealt face up, you may not touch the cards. You do not call out your intentions. Ca the green felt for a HIT, and to STAND, a side-to-side waving of your hand held Other casinos deal players cards face down, especially in one or two hand-held games. Here, you do pick up the cards. For a HIT, scrape the held cards softly toward you. To signal STAND, you just slide your cards face down under your chips. Remember, Its a One-OnOne Contest. Sure its great fun for the entire table to whoop and holler when the dealer busts. But blackjack is not a team sport. It doesnt matter whats going on to your left and right. Its just you and your skill versus the dealer. So, concentrate and stay focused and play your own game. This brings us to the end of what I referred to earlier, Kindergarten Black jack. Now we get into the good stuff. In the next few articles, well be covering the actual basic strategy play that is the heart of playing winning blackjack. Bye bye, See you next issue!
