In an effort to help consumers find resources to survive the current economic recession, Americans for Fairness in Lending, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting predatory lending and reforming the credit industry, and Denise Richardson, a local consumer advocate, will co-host the National Consumer Empowerment Conference and Expo on Nov. 21. The event, designed to unite consumers with advocates, attorneys and consumer protection industry experts from around the country, will feature a panel that will speak and respond to questions on a variety of consumer financial matters. Topics will include abusive debt collection practices, Fair Credit Reporting Act issues, consumer credit reporting rights, identity theft, predatory lending, cyber crime, plus more. "It is my hope that this event will empower every attendee by supplying answers, providing resources and allowing every individual a chance to ask questions and have their voices heard," said Richardson, author of Give Me Back My Credit. She said the current financial crisis and mortgage industry meltdown has affected the entire nation, but the state of Florida was one of the hardest hit, which is why she helped organize this event in South Florida. The free event, open to the public, will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach Hotel located at 4000 South Ocean Drive. "By joining us at this event, you can become part of the solution in the fight against predatory lending, help us shine the spotlight on the problems caused by abusive loan products and raise the volume on our collective outrage and the need for better consumer protections," said Sarah Byrnes, director of Americans for Fairness in Lending. "With panels of speakers, community forums and a great variety of consumer advocacy groups in attendance, this event promises something for everyone."

ART & CULTURE BUSINESS COMMUNITY EVENTS FOOD HEALTH MONEY OPINION PEOPLE PETS By Caron Conway Lead Correspondent A group of specialists in the art of optimal living from Hollywood and surrounding communities has created a unique sanctuary where both body and soul are nourished through the practice of yoga, Pilates, expressive and healing arts and nutrition. OMECHAYE, which opened in June at 1100 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd., began as a family project and evolved into a full-service, well-being facility founded on CEO Beatriz Wilenskys vision of a place for comprehensive community enrichment. The concept for OMECHAYE grew out of Wilenskys experiences taking dance classes with Hollywood teacher Armando Salcedo and yoga classes with Rosa Santana. Soon the network of specialists in physical, mental and spiritual well-being expanded and OMECHAYE was born. My mother had this dream, and she put everything together, said Magali Wilensky, one of OMECHAYEs six directors along with her brother Javier, Salcedo, Santana and Hollywood residents Alex Cohen and Susan Farkas. Through experiential education and a holistic approach that encompasses body, mind and spirit, OMECHAYE represents the human quest to reach their highest potential. Iyengar yoga classes for all levels are offered, as well as guided practice sessions, private sessions for those with special therapeutic needs and prenatal classes in the Hatha Yoga tradition. Pilates and fitness classes include Pilates Reformer, Pilates Mat, Pilates Roll, Cardio Dance, Yogilates, Body Sculpting, Body Conditioning, Kickboxing, Stretch & Strengthen and Belly Dance Cardio. The Expressive Arts program features Prayerdanse, a spiritual workout described as a meditation in movement; Urban Choreography & Freestyle; Mixed Media Painting; and a Mandala class on painting symbols on a circular frame that represents the sacred circle of healing and wholeness. Mothers of young children appreciate the facilitys two supervised playrooms, available from 9 a.m. to noon for a $5 fee, and offering a different paid activity from yoga to dancing to painting from 4:30 to 6 p.m. daily. OMECHAYEs Kids Program is geared for ages up to 12 years and is all related to holistic well-being, Wilensky said. Childrens classes include Yoga; Capoeira; Learning the Rhythms music classes; Prayerdanse4KIDS, a creative way for youngsters to exercise, dance, connect and evolve; and Gems art classes designed to strengthen fine and gross motor skills, as well as tactile and sensory development. OMECHAYE also accommodates the communitys special-needs senior population with yoga classes for students with limited mobility because of Parkinsons disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lymphedema or other conditions. In addition, workshops are conducted in a variety of areas such as Shamanic Healing, Psychodynamic of Illness or Trauma Free Meditation, Pranayama Yoga Breathing Techniques and Teacher Training for instructors and advanced students. Were offering a lot of things, and we integrate everything, Wilensky said. We try to mesh body, mind and spirit. Toward that end, the 6,000-squarefoot facility carries herbal and homeopathic supplements, as well as workout, organic and bamboo clothing lines. The Healthy Cafe and Smoothie Bar offers nutritious salads, wraps and immunity-boosting smoothies, with all ingredients supervised by a traditional Chinese medicine doctor. Well-being services at OMECHAYE include Traditional Chinese Medicine, Bach Flower Therapy to improve emotional and spiritual health, Homeopathic and Naturopathic Therapy, Vibrational Healing, Qigong, Medical Qigong healing techniques, Meditation and Coaching. Its a really nice facility, and we want you to feel like youre in your own house, Wilensky said. Its very familyoriented and warm. Its like a community.

E-mail a hi-res photo with the following information: Name (owners/parents); Pet (breed and name); Age & Gender; and Special traits & talents to brett@hollywoodgazette.com.DO YOU WANT YOUR PET TO BE PET OF THE MONTH? Fozzy, who is 2 years old, likes to think hes a person. His owners, Amber and Norberto Saez, said when he sleeps, he needs a pillow and a blanket, and if there is no space for him, then he will make the space. The more affection he gets the better because he loves to cuddle, Amber said. He can sit, speak, lie down and give high fives on command, and he will do anything for popcorn. "FOZZY" When South Florida Chef and restaurateur Jim Fantasia acquired the Rainbo Cafe in Downtown Hollywood a year and a half ago, he knew he had his work cut out for him. The former gem of Hollywood Boulevard had suffered from both an economy run amok and years of inattention. While still a popular neighborhood eatery, it didn't offer much to remind its patrons of the glamorous Al Capone-era dining and nightlife hotspot that it was in the late 1930s or the diner it was in the 1980s. Now, after more than a year of planning and nearly a month of renovation work, the newly finished Grille Room at the Rainbo Cafe is once again open for business. Fantasia separated the Rainbo Cafe into two separate sections with the right side of the cafe featuring the traditional counter and table diner, and the renovated left side of the cafe featuring the Grille Room, which contains a fireplace and warm, intimate setting with both indoor and outdoor seating for a more updated dining experience. "I didn't want to alienate our loyal customer base," Fantasia said on his decision to create two different eating areas separated by French-style doors and artwork. "I wanted to keep some of the old style while incorporating something new." Recent diners Kim and Zahiir Cruz said the new decor gives the restaurant a warm and elegant ambiance. We were treated like royalty, and there was nothing the staff would not do to ensure that each one of us was enjoying our experience 110 percent, they said. Our meal, including salad and citrus grilled chicken with red pepper sauce, polenta, garlic and oil mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables, could not have been more delicious or more beautifully presented. We cant say enough about the Grille and encourage everyone to give it a try. Fantasia said the project has been a personal achievement and said he feels the restaurant has connected him personally with the community. "I grew up in the restaurant business," he said. "With many years and many projects behind me, I now feel that coming to Hollywood and the Rainbo, with its rich history and loyal customer base, is like coming home."

E-mail hi-res photo with the following information: Name of Parents; Name of Baby; Age; and Special Traits to brett@hollywoodgazette.com. DO YOU WANT YOUR BABY TO BE HOLLYWOODS BABY OF THE MONTH? Born on March 25, 2008, James Jimmy Alexander Lowrey loves to go to events with his parents, Ken and Violet, which has made him a local Hollywood celebrity. In addition to his fame, Jimmy loves to talk on the phone. James Jimmy Alexander LowreyBABY MONTH of the SafecareMedical Center Richard J. Wilbur, M.D.Board Certified in Internal Medicine Walgreens of South Florida and the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation forged a partnership aimed at curing diabetes and set a goal of raising $125,000. Using various creative strategies, including placing collection canisters bearing the words Help Cure Diabetes Now at checkout counters, the effort has already raised more than $20,000 for the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI), a center of excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, in just a few months. Hollywoods Taft Street Walgreens recently hit the $1,000 mark of funds raised, and the foundation awarded Store Manager Darien Duncan with a stay at the Miami Hilton. He, however, presented his award to the most deserving member of his team, Eileen Flanagan, a cashier who has worked at the store for 12 years. I just know what it feels like to be sick, Flanagan said. So I ask each one of my customers to donate their change and at least 95 percent of them do.

Ray de la Feuilliez, vice president of business development at James A. Cummings who partnered with Loveland Development Co. for the project, proposed combining local expertise with international experience for their design concept. The team has experience working in Hollywood, having helped with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino development and Memorial Hospital development as well. We bring to you local expertise; we guarantee you a risk-free selection; we will results the City of Hollywood is looking for, de la Feuilliez said. The Loveland team, which is the only out-of-state developer based in Michigan, proposed building a 275-room Planet Hollywood hotel on the site, as well as a 850-space garage, meandering/lazy river, live performing arts venue, retail shopping, tour ist information center and food venues that include Planet Hollywood, Anthonys Coal Fired Pizza and Rosies Gourmet Italian Ices. The project will also incorporate environment friendly green building. Each of the seven members of the evaluation committee passed the Loveland concept for consideration for Stage II. The committee also unanimously passed the concept proposed by Margaritaville Enterprises, a Jimmy Buffett Caribbean Island destination enterprise that promotes an escapism lifestyle. Partner Lon Tabatchnick, president of Lojeta Group, LLC and Hollywood Beach resident, proposed a 350-room hotel with an elaborate pool area, 50 beachfront cabanas, 12,000-square-foot Margaritaville Cafe, 35,000 square feet of convention space, an amphitheater with lawn area, 850-space garage and a public transportation system to transport people from the garage. We believe this resort will create a daily destination for local residents, Tabatchnick said. Its a wishing to escape to that Margaritaville lifestyle even if only for a day. step was Allied Capital and Development, with leader Nicholas Mastroianni envisioning the Johnson Street property development similar to Jupiters current waterfront development project called Harbourside, which, rooftop bar and pool. We want to enhance the existing neighborhood character, Mastroianni said. This project really needs to take the value of the Broadwalk and crank it up. To crank up the volume, he suggested building a four-star hotel, creating 1,000 parking spaces, 23,000 square feet of retail space, a 33,000-square-foot restaurant and increasing the width of the Broadwalk to focus on creating public gathering space. The team includes Bernard Zyscovich, of Zyscovich Architects, who helped create Hollywoods Master Plan and Zoning for Downtown Hollywood approved in April. Some members of the evaluation committee, however, were concerned with the teams ing and the teams amount of other ongoing projects, but Allied will still proceed. Shefaor Development, LLC proposed the only idea the committee did not approve because of its plan to try and salvage the existing parking garage on the Johnson Street property as opposed to rebuilding it like the other companies proposed to do. If the City Commission approves of the committees recommendations at the Nov. 7 commission meeting, then each will move to Stage II of the RFP process. Stage II of the process will require developers to submit a design concept; of the lease of the site; a project implementation schedule; and how its going to work for Hollywood. The materials will be due on Jan. 28. To keep the public informed on the RFP process, the City created a link on its homepage (under the Hot Information section), and Swanson-Rivenbark said public awareness is an important part of the process. We want the public to understand all along the way how were going through this process, she said.To satisfy a community need for a year-round farmers market, the Yellow Green Farmers Market will open on Sun day, Nov. 8 and will offer a wide variety of fresh, natural products ranging from goods made by local artisans. With an emphasis on healthy living, the organizers of the Yellow Green Farm ers Market are committed to not only pro viding residents with a place to purchase a variety of foods and products but also providing a family-friendly atmosphere enhanced by the work of local artists and musicians. The 100,000-square-foot venue, located next to I-95 just off Taft Street at 1940 N. 30th Road, houses 300 vendor booths under cover. Because of the markets objectives, the bulk of the sellers will be predomi nately comprised of local farmers and artisans. Most importantly for the organiz ers, the Yellow Green Farmers Market is intended to be a place where families can go and spend the day together while en joying snacks and lunch while shopping. The market will be open every Thursday form 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and yearround, rain or shine.

By Caron Conway Lead Correspondent Hollywood Animal Hospital may be one of the oldest veterinary practices in South Florida, but it offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive services in small animal care with cutting-edge technology and modern facilities. Hollywood Animal Hospital, which celebrated its 62nd anniversary Nov. 1, will soon be expanding those facilities at 2864 Hollywood Blvd. With the completion of renovations by the beginning of the year, the main hospital will feature four additional patient examination rooms, an expanded client reception area and doctor space, a larger laboratory space, an expanded treatment space for hospitalized animals and isolation ward for infectious animals, additional boarding spaces, increased parking and a new telephone room with six operators. The expansion, which will increase the size of the HAH facilities to 20,000 square feet, will also include an animal rehabilitation center and CT scan facility for future uses. Dr. C.E. Dee, his wife, Lucille, and her brother Dr. I.C. Frederickson founded the original Hollywood Animal Hospital in 1947 as a small, family-run hospital. Since 1950, the HAH has been a Certified Member Hospital of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), a voluntary veterinary organization that sets high standards which member hospitals are required to maintain and continually upgrade. In 1978, the practice moved to the current hospital building, and the adjacent Outpatient Clinic, commonly referred to as the Annex, was built in 1996. Both well health care/outpatient services and emergency care admitting are provided in the main hospital. Services include preventative medicine, diagnostics, internal medicine, trauma care, electrocardiography, dental care, digital radiography, ultrasound, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, complete laboratory facilities, infectious disease containment, medicated and insecticidal bathing, 24-hour emergency care, referral care, arthroscopy, endoscopy, oncological services, a canine/feline blood bank, pet cremation services, microchip insertion and boarding. The Annex provides the same well health care/outpatient services that are offered in the main building and offers canine and feline pet products, such as food, prescription dietary products, heartworm preventatives, topical flea and tick products, shampoos, conditioners and deodorizers. Today, Hollywood Animal Hospital is a very large general practice run by C.E. Dees three sons, veterinarians James, Jon and Larry Dee. The HAH family still includes their mother, Lucille, now 91, who does the books every day and is assisted by her daughter Barbara Thomas. Its always been a family business, James Dee said. Veterinary medicine is really a very personal business. Its like youre taking care of someones child. The HAH staff consists of 21 onsite veterinarians and three radiologists who are available through telecommunications, as well as about 100 support staff members. As the small animal practice grew through the years, so did the need for expanded facilities. Weve been cramped for a while, Dee said. Services offered at Hollywood Animal Hospital also were recently expanded beyond canine and feline care to include pocket pets, such as hamsters and gerbils. While the scope of services, medical technology and physical facilities have changed through the years, Hollywood Animal Hospital has remained consistent in its dedication to providing the finest veterinary care to its patients and ensuring that their owners are well-informed and comfortable with the decisions made regarding their pets care. Patients come to Hollywood Animal Hospital from as far away as Palm Beach and the Keys. The furthest referral was a dog shipped in from Anchorage, Alaska. Dee attributes the longevity and success of this family-run veterinary practice to the emphasis placed on treating every pet like a valued member of its family. I would like to think that it has to do with our philosophy that whats good for the pet comes first, Dee said.
