Transit and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) banded together to complete these improvements in an effort to revitalize State Road 7 and prepare for ing to the Citys Web site. However, the earliest set construction date for road improvements is Fall of 2012, with an estimated 200 days of construction. Albert Perez, director of Public Utilities for the City of Hollywood, said the project starts with public infrastructure improvements, which include replacing the existing water mains to improve water ser vice and installing a new sewage collection system with two sewer lift stations. These improvements will increase development potential in the area. The water and sewer updates will extending from Hollywood Boulevard north to Atlanta Street. Design and permitting for Phase I began in January 2009, and bidding and construction is set for September 2010 to June 2012 with an estimated cost of $7.5 million. The second phase extends from Hollywood Boulevard to Pembroke Road. Design and permitting is estimated to start in January 2012, and bidding and construction is estimated to start in September 2014 and last until June 2015 with an estimated cost of $3 million. Perez said any property owner located on the new sewer lines must connect to them, but the City will provide ample The State Road 7 project also includes a two-fold road improvement plan. First, FDOT will resurface the roads from south of Stirling Road to Fillmore Street; upgrade signals to mast arms at Taft Street; and add landscaping, additional sidewalks, shoulders and bus stops. Construction will begin in Fall 2012, last 200 days and cost $2.8 million. Second, FDOT will widen State Road 7 from S.W. 25th Street to Fillmore Street to a six-lane divided roadway, add raised landscape medians, three signalized intersections, six bus bays, 4-foot bike lanes, 6-foot sidewalks; and build 10 drainage areas. This portion of the project will cost $26.6 million, start construction in Fall 2013 and take three years to complete. FDOT, however, has not received funding to widen the portion of State Road 7 from south of Stirling Road to Fillmore. This is the project everyone has been waiting on, said James Ford, project manager, design for FDOT. In order to widen State Road 7, FDOT will need to acquire property mainly on the east side of the road and will send appraisal notices to proprietors in January 2010. Brian Mekarski, project manager for acquisitions from Pembroke to Fillmore, said the department will not take more property than it needs for the project and will reface or relocate businesses if the City wants the property. At the conclusion of the meeting, James Cromar, principal planner, Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, said the project will provide the City with mixed-use opportunities, including residential, retail, ofeveryday needs. According to a study done on the area by Keith and Schnars, P.A. and Bermello, Ajamil and Partners, Inc., the typical building has small bays, which attract incubator-type businesses. The area needs code enforcement, cleanup and organization to obtain some potential for economic improvements. The idea is to increase options and opportunities, Cromar said.

The Johnson Street Property on Hollywood Beach could sport a massive waterslide and public pool, after the City Commission amended the recommendation of proposers for advancement to Stage II of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process Nov. 4. Assistant City Manager Catherine Swanson-Rivenbark presented the Commission with a list of three design concepts deemed suitable for redevelopment of the evaluation committee. One concept Shefaor Development's waterslide and public pool was not recommended. Last month, the committee listened to four proposals for development of the cityowned Johnson Street property bounded by A1A to the west, Johnson Street to the north, Michigan Street to the south and the Broadwalk to the east, and recommended Allied Capital & Development, Loveland Development Co. and Margaritaville Enterprises for advancement. The fourth, Shefaor Development, it said, shouldn't move forward because of its plan to salvage the existing parking garage on the property. The committee made its recommendation based on the design team and its and general concept. But the City Commission thought differently than the committee. And so did Hollywood residents. Eight of nine public speakers at the Commission Meeting believed the Commission should include Shefaor on the Short List because of the large, public component it proposed. "The public access in this particular proposal was outstanding and different from every single other one," said resident Sara Case. The Shefaor team proposed a 300-room hotel; retail food outlets along the Broadwalk and Johnson Street, which may include Tommy Bahama if negotiations succeed; expanding the Bandshell; and building a waterslide attraction, pool and children's play fountain that would be open to the public. "The project will restore and enhance the public's use of the site while attracting visitors to our beach community," said the Shefaor team during the developer interviews in November. Commissioner Linda Sherwood said she had no problem with the Shefaor concept and pointed out that the City wouldn't lose any money by allowing the team to proceed, saying, "It's their dime." "I think you really need to make sure you have that open, public concept," she said. "This is what the people of Hollywood are looking for." The vote to add Shefaor Development to the Short List carried unanimously. All four proposals will advance to Stage II of the RFP process, which requires developers to submit a design concept; feasibility, lease of the site; a project implementation schedule; and how it's going to work for Hollywood. The materials will be due on Jan. 28. "Anything less than iconic will not be accepted for this project," Mayor Peter Bober said.

By Caron Conway Lead Correspondent Nearly two decades after a human antibody was created that treats an aggressive form of breast cancer, it is now being used in a promising new clinical research study conducted in several countries and at 80 medical sites in the United States, including Memorial Healthcare System in Hollywood. Herceptin, created in 1990 by leading biotech company Genentech, is the first humanized antibody approved for the treatment of HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer, an aggressive disease that responds poorly to chemotherapy. Designed to target and block the function of HER2, a protein produced by a specific gene with cancercausing potential, Herceptin has been shown to improve patient response rates, disease-free survival and overall survival while maintaining the quality of life in HER2-positive breast cancer patients. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and the second-leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 15 to 30 percent of breast cancers are diagnosed as HER2-positive. Characterized by increased quantities of the HER2 protein on the surface of the tumor cells that hasten their ability to grow and spread, HER2-positive breast cancer has a greater likelihood of recurrence and a lower chance of survival than HER2negative breast cancer. Since it was approved for breast cancer patients in 1998, Herceptin (trastuzumab) administered in combination with chemotherapy has become a commonly used treatment for women with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. Despite recent advances, however, additional treatment options are needed for patients with this aggressive form of the disease. About 27 percent of women with metastatic breast cancer in which the disease has spread to other parts of the body such as the lungs, bones, liver and brain survive for five years. The average survival time is only about 24 months. The purpose of the global clinical research trial that Memorial Healthcare System is participating in is to determine the safety and effectiveness of the investigational medicine pertuzumab, a humanized antibody designed to interfere with tumor growth, when given in combination with Herceptin and chemotherapy. The new clinical trial, known as the CLEOPATRA (CLinical Evaluation Of Pertuzumab and TRAstuzumab) study, began recruiting patients in January 2008 and is underway in 18 countries worldwide. CLEOPATRA is a Phase III double-blind, placebo-controlled trial targeting patients with previously untreated HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. The Phase II clinical trial of pertuzumab and Herceptin targeted metastatic breast cancer patients whose disease had progressed on Herceptin-based therapy as their most recent treatment. To be eligible for participation in that trial, patients could not have received more than three lines of previous therapy, including Herceptin and chemotherapy In the Phase II study, half of the participants with advanced, HER2-New breast cancer research study conducted at Memorial Hospital Study targets HER2positive metastatic breast cancer, shows significant promise in clinical trials The 2009-2010 flu season promises to be one of the worst in many years. On Saturday, Oct. 24, President Barack Obama declared the swine flu a national emergency, allowing hospitals and local governments to speedily set up alternate sites and procedures to handle any surge of patients. In Broward County, 11 deaths and 88 hospitalizations from swine flu have been reported as of Nov. 17. The best way to prevent the flu is to be vaccinated. This year there are two separate vaccines administered. The first is the seasonal flu vaccine, which has been available since September. Many people have already received this vaccine either from their private physician or from retail outlets, such as Walgreens or CVS. It contains three strains of virus: two are identical to last years vaccine, and one has been changed to a slightly different strain of influenza B. The second vaccine is for the 2009 H1N1, (swine flu), influenza virus. This is a new virus first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. Virtually all (98 percent) of the influenza cases reported so far in the United States have been caused by this new virus. Most people infected with this virus have a self-limited illness, but some require treatment, and deaths have occurred. The vaccine for the 2009 H1N1 is being distributed through the local health departments. Initially there had been a shortage of vaccine but more is becoming available. As of Nov. 20, 54.1 million doses have been available in the U.S., an increase of 11 million doses since the previous week. It is available at public health facilities and some local physician offices. Providers administering vaccine are honor-bound to follow CDC guidelines. Initially the vaccine will be made available to the following groups: 1) 6 months to 24 years of age 2) Pregnant women 3) Healthcare workers 4) Patients with chronic illness (Asthma, diabetes, chronic respiratory illness or immunosuppressed or compromised) and household contacts of such people. As vaccines become more available, the second group will be targeted: people 25 to 64 years of age. And finally, when the vaccine is plentiful: people 65 and older. The reason for this is that the H1N1 influenza seems to be more serious in younger individuals, perhaps because older people have a partial immunity from exposure to a similar virus when they were younger. The vaccine for H1N1 is made in the same way as the seasonal flu vaccine, which has an excellent safety record. People should not avoid the vaccination out of fear. The real risk from H1N1 far outweighs any theoretical worry of vaccine-related problems. So far, the most common side effect is a little discomfort at the vaccination site. Remember to take simple measures to stay healthy: 1) Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze or cough. 2) Wash your hands often with soap and water. 3) Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. 4) Stay home if you get sick, and limit contact with others to keep from infecting them. If you feel you have the flu and are seriously ill, your doctor may prescribe one of the antiviral agents, such as Tamiflu or Relenza. These are most effective if started within two or three days of symptoms. As always, if you have any individual or specific health-related questions, the best source of information is your own personal physician. in Internal Medicine.

By Caron Conway Lead Correspondent For 30 years, Elaine Fridman has welcomed customers at Dannys, her Emerald Hills store known for its selection of designer sunglasses, costume jewelry, watches, handbags and more. In addition to the shoppers, some people would just drop by to say hello. And now, many of those loyal customers are stopping in to say goodbye. Dannys is closing at the end of the month, some two years after the man it was named for, Fridmans husband of 41 years, lost his battle with cancer. Elaine and Danny, a former lawyer, started the business together as Dannys Discount back in August 1979. They made a good team and built a successful business, although neither one had any previous business experience. After Danny died, Elaine carried on alone. I needed the store after he passed away to have a transition period, and thats over, she said. I spent a lot of good years there, but the last two years have been pretty tough. Fridman witnessed changes in the business community, with mom-andpop shops edged out by national retail chains, as well as in her own customer base, much of which relocated farther north over the past 10 years. And yet, Fridman said, I meet people all the time who say, Oh my God, I bought makeup from you in high school, and now theyre all grown up with children of their own. Fridman herself was in high school, a mere 16 years old, when she met her husband-to-be at his cousins bar mitzvah. She was a 19-year-old college student and he was in law school when the couple married. They raised two sons and decided to start their own business after relocating to South Florida from New York in the summer of It was hell on wheels, Fridman recalled. [Danny] didnt know a thing about business. The original Dannys Discount, located a few doors down from the current storefront in the Park Sheridan Plaza, carried sundries everything from prune juice to hair dye. A debt paid off in sunglass inventory that sold out in a matter of days led Dannys in a new direction. But one constant throughout the stores 30-year history has been the emphasis on customer service. We always believed that youre there to serve the customer, Fridman said. If you treat them right, theyre going to come back. When Fridman closes the doors to Dannys on Dec. 31, it will mark the end of an era for one of the vanishing breed of landmark local mom-and-pop shops but the beginning of a new chapter in her life. Ive met a nice gentleman and were traveling together, said Fridman, who also plans to fill her retirement years with golf, cooking and volunteer work. And shes building a house in Boynton Beach, where shell be moving this summer. Although shes ready for retirement, Fridman said shell miss the Emerald Hills community where shes lived and worked for 30 years, and the people shes come to know through Dannys. It was not just a business. We lived it because we were the neighborhood, she said. Dannys, at 3315 Sheridan St. in the Park Sheridan Plaza, will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday through Dec. 31. All merchandise which includes designer sunglasses, reading glasses, costume jewelry, watches, handbags, wallets, fragrances, cosmetics and decorative picture frames will be sold at or below store cost. All sales are cash only and final. For more information, call 954-9618422. Local business woman closes up shop after 30 years CONT. FROM PAGE 8 positive metastatic breast cancer, whose disease had progressed during treatment with Herceptin, benefited from a combination of Herceptin and pertuzumab. Nearly one in four patients saw their tumors disappear or shrink, while another 25 percent of patients saw their cancer stabilize for at least six months. The Phase II trial results released in 2008 represent significant promise for women with breast cancer in the future, said Dr. Jose Baselga of the Vall dHebron University Hospital in Barcelona, Spain, the trials lead investigator. We are hopeful the combination of Herceptin and pertuzumab used with chemotherapy will be even more effective if used to treat women newly diagnosed with advanced cancer. Current goals of treatment for metastatic breast cancer include symptom relief, improved quality of life and increased overall survival and disease progression-free survival. If the CLEOPATRA study proves successful, the combination of Herceptin, pertuzumab and chemotherapy has the potential to become a new standard of care in HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. Research into new treatments is vital to continue the progress being made against this deadly disease, said Dr. Alejandra Perez, Director of Breast Cancer for the Memorial Healthcare System. The CLEOPATRA study will tell us more about pertuzumabs potential role in treating women in the future with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. To be eligible for the CLEOPATRA study, participants must be at least 18 years old and have HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer, and cannot have received treatment after the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. For additional information on the CLEOPATRA study and its eligibility requirements, call 1-888-662-6728 or visit www.HER2study.com.Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and the second-leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States.

From time to time, I write an editorial and generally like to keep it upbeat. As an eternal optimist, I resist addressing the times we live in as hard or challenging. If youre a long-time reader of the Hollywood Gazette, then you know that we focus on whats positive and good in Hollywood, while informing you of whats happening in your community. The reality is that I know of too many people facing tough times to pretend that this holiday season is like any other. People are dealing with circumstances that are not exactly what they planned on, now more than ever. However and here comes the optimism, folks if you keep your plans in sand and your goals in concrete, you can start to see these changes as minor setbacks. Whether youre dealing with the loss of a job or a loved one, theres always hope for the promises of life. Every issue of the Hollywood Gazette is packed with opportunities for you to connect with your community and get the support you need to keep on track. And every holiday season brings a unique opportunity to reflect on what you are grateful for and to reach out to your family, especially the ones you havent spoken to for a long time. Its a good time to bury the hatchet and forgive. After all and I truly believe this we are all just doing the best we can with the tools we have for dealing with what life throws our way. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Meredith Brown, the founding editor of this newspaper for the opportunity to grow with an amazing team for the past four years, her father Michael Brown and the wonderful staff here at Hollywood Gazette: Barbie, Brett, Alvaro, Betty, Marika, James and Caron. And of course without our readers and advertisers, we would cease to exist. Thank you for reading, advertising and this year, for following us on Twitter and being our fans on Facebook!

ART & CULTURE MONEY COMMUNITY EVENTS FOOD HEALTH OPINION PEOPLE PETS So youve decided that the holiday season is not the time to focus on losing weight. Youve decided that you might as well enjoy the season by eating what you feel and drinking until your hearts content. Youve decided that you really dont mind packing on an extra five to 10 pounds because youll buckle down and get super focused on Jan. 2 and lose it all. After all, the holiday season is only once a year, and what difference is an extra five or 10 pounds going to make to the 10 or more pounds you already have to lose? Well I have GREAT news. I am going to make packing on those extra pounds SUPER easy for you. In fact, I guarantee that if you implement the following six rules this holiday season, your clothes will fit tighter and your muffin top will be more obvious than ever before. Hooray! Okay. So heres what you have to do. 1) OVER INDULGE I N ALCOHOL, PARTICULARLY ONES HIGH IN SUGAR alcohol is the silent killer when it comes to controlling calories and is perhaps the biggest contributor to weight gain during the holiday season. Alcohol has seven calories per gram, which makes it nearly twice as fattening as carbohydrates or protein. Add a fruit juice or carbonated beverage to your drink and youre sure to pack on some serious pounds. 2) STUFF YOUR FACE TO THE MAX: Portion control is for punks, and it definitely wont help your weight gain mission. Take advantage of every opportunity to eat multiple servings and get as much food on that plate as possible. In fact, if its spilling over the sides, that would be best! Buffets and potluck environments are ideal to accomplish this goal. And dont even think about waiting 10 minutes before helping yourself to a second serving. As soon as youre done cleaning your plate, hurry up and pack down some more food before your brain gets the cue that youre full. 3) MAKE SURE YOURE RAVENOUS BEFORE GOING TO ANY HOLIDAY PARTY: That way you can be sure youll overeat and really do some serious damage at the dessert table. To get the biggest bang for your buck, eat the appetizers that are fried and highest in processed carbohydrates, such as white flour. I recommend the puffed pastries and pigs in a blanket. Also, dont forget to socialize by the food table so you dont burn any extra calories walking back and forth, and you can really reap the rewards of mindless eating. 4) SKIP THE VEGGIE & FRUIT PLATTERS and head straight for the chocolatecovered marshmallows. Dont waste time trying to squeeze in your five daily serving of fruits and veggies. Nope. Now is not the time. After all, those kinds of foods are too low in calories and sugar and much too high in fiber to cause any increase in the size of your muffin top. If youre really committed to your goal, skip the entre altogether and focus strictly on the sweets. Foods high in sugar elevate insulin levels, and insulin puts your body in serious fat-storing mode. 5) AV OI D ALL UNNECESSARY MOVEMENT: All movement requires your body to burn calories, and our goal here is to store as many calories as possible. Therefore, if you can do all your shopping online and avoid walking in the mallPERFECT. And forget about the gym maybe you should just freeze your membership for the month of December. In the worst-case scenario, if you are forced to move, then just make sure its at a very low intensity, and youre not lifting anything that will make you gain muscle, as this will speed up your metabolism (that is NOT our goal here). 6) EA CH DA Y S K I P A S MANY MEALS AS POSSIBLE: If you can get away with starving yourself until dinner time, thats ideal. Then youll be able to eat 1,500 to 2,000 calories in one sitting at dinner. Talk about weight gain heaven. If you cant last all day without a meal, then at least be sure to skip breakfast because youll be sure to slow down your metabolism all morning, and youll overeat later in the day (not to mention that youll be so hungry by lunch that youll probably make poor choices, which will help make gaining those five to 10 pounds that much easier). I promise if you follow just a couple of these tips, for just a couple of weeks, youll see a major increase in your body fat and in the size of your muffin top. Follow them all and youll gain so much weight that youll be shopping for a bigger clothes this holiday season. Good Luck!Shondelle Solomon-Miles is the owner of Synergize!

Will a tax on soda help reduce obesity?By Caron Conway Lead Correspondent In the midst of the debate over a national tax on sugar-sweetened beverages, soda giant Coca-Cola, which has a bottling company in Hollywood, is taking proactive measures to address America's obesity epidemic through various nutrition, education and physical activity initiatives. Some 72 million Americans are overweight or obese, generating an associated $147 billion a year in extra medical costs double the amount of obesity-related health spending from nearly a decade ago, according to a recent study published by the journal Health Affairs. Supporters of a tax on soda or junk food argue that raising the price on these products would reduce consumption, thereby combating the nation's obesity problem and lowering health costs, as well as fund government-run health programs. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that a 3-cent tax on soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages, including energy and sports drinks like Gatorade, would generate $24 billion over the next four years. Anti-soda tax groups, such as the Center for Consumer Freedom, are urging health experts to view the obesity epidemic as an issue of personal responsibility that does not require government action. And some soda tax opponents, including the American Beverage Association and its recently formed Americans Against Food Taxes coalition, say it would hit poor Americans the hardest. The position of The Coca-Cola Co. and its bottlers is that attacking a single product and taxing middle-income Americans will not solve the obesity problem. Norman Ross, vice president, Public Affairs and Communications at Coca-Cola Enterprises in Hollywood, stressed that Americans consume calories from many different food and beverage sources. "In fact, an April 2009 analysis by the U.S. National Cancer Institute showed that soda, sports drinks, sweetened water beverages and energy drinks collectively contribute just 5.5 percent of the calories in the average American diet, which means that nearly 95 percent of our calories come from other foods and beverages," Ross said. Coca-Cola executives believe that education and a balance of calories are the keys to curbing obesity. Toward this end, the company has been working with partners in the health community, industry groups and government to support and develop programs and policies designed to make it easier for consumers to live healthy, active lifestyles. The Coca-Cola Co. recently announced that it will soon add caloriesper-serving and servings-per-container information on the front of its packages, providing consumers with at-a-glance information about the calorie content of its products so that they can make informed decisions. To help consumers manage portions more effectively, Coca-Cola will introduce new 90-calorie, sleek mini cans, a simple tool for people who want to measure what they drink in calories instead of in ounces, in 2010. Shondelle Solomon-Miles, a Hollywood fitness trainer and owner of Synergize! weight loss studio in Hollywood, agrees with Coca-Cola and believes the solution to the obesity epidemic is educating and providing better options to the public. "When people want what they want, price is rarely a factor," she said. "I don't know of anyone who quit smoking because of the price of cigarettes. I think it's quite ignorant and presumptuous to think that people will mind paying a few extra cents for a soft drink, especially because, for many, drinking these sugarladen beverages is an addiction." Coca-Cola also is bringing more diet and light beverages to fountains at all of its retail partners. The company recently introduced Coca-Cola Freestyle, a new fountain dispenser that offers diet and no-calorie options in more than half of its 100-plus drinks. The company's portfolio of beverages includes more than 130 lowand no-calorie alternatives in the U.S. alone, as well as juices, teas, sports drinks, waters, flavored waters and other products. "We work hard to provide our customers with information needed to help balance their calorie intake, as well as to provide a variety of noand lowcalorie beverage options to stay refreshed and hydrated," Ross said. Coca-Cola also is working with several organizations and health experts to support and encourage physical activity and education with regard to diet and nutrition. For example, Coca-Cola sponsors Triple Play, a wellness program developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services that the Boys & Girls Clubs of America offers. "Available at clubs nationwide, Triple Play aims to get kids to become more physically active, learn to eat healthier and increase their ability to engage in healthy relationships," Ross said. Coca-Cola North America also recently announced its partnership with a broad coalition of industry associations, food and beverage manufacturers, retail partners and other allies in the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation. It aims to bring a common-sense approach to helping reduce obesity by 2015, with childhood obesity a particular focus. The group's message is simple: Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is about balancing the calories consumed in a healthy and sensible diet with calories expended through physical activity. "At Coca-Cola, we're committed to helping address obesity by supporting and encouraging active, healthy living through our products, programs and policies," Ross said. "A healthy diet isn't about rejecting a specific food, beverage or ingredient. Rather, it's about making informed, sensible choices based on individual needs."I think its quite ignorant and presumptuous to think that people will mind paying a few extra cents for a soft drink, especially because, for many, drinking these sugar-laden beverages is an addiction.SHONDELLE SOLOMON-MILE SOwner, Synergize!
