Local artisan creates unique collagesCOVER STORY BY BRETT DALY | Editor brett@hollywoodgazette.comWith a growing art movement taking over Hollywood, resident Alissa Alfonso has found a way to leave her own footprint on the creative crusade. Alfonso foregoes paint and brushes forget traditional and opts instead for fabric and a sewing machine to create her distinctive works of art, which she refers to as fabric collages on canvas. Using inspiration from photographs she captures around South Florida, she recreates the image on canvas from hundreds of hand-dyed and premade fabric swatches. Irons, fabric adhesive and, of course, her sewing machine, help complete her own version of art. Its like therapy, Alfonso said of her artistic passion. Its what I can do. It just pours out of me. Alfonso studied fine arts at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, but it wasnt until motherhood that she found her inspiration for her most recent undertakings. When her oldest son, Grey, was born, the new mother could not find any baby clothes she liked. She wanted something more original than teddy bears. At that point, Alfonso decided to make his baby clothes and bought fabric and dye to create personalized clothing for Grey. She later used the same techniques utilized making the clothes to make her canvas fabric portraits. Alfonso, because of this inspiration, now has a clothing line, called fivestiches, and a fabric collage collection, which she currently has on display at the Hollywood ArtsPark Gallery through March 28. She has shown her clothing line in New York and has sold it to 36 stores in a number of states including New York and California. She looks forward to showcasing her canvas portraits in other venues around Hollywood. We really have a large concentration of artists and craftspeople in Hollywood, and I really felt I needed to get involved here, Alfonso said. Alfonso will participate in the upcoming Odd Duck Bazaar an annual indie craft fair, artisan showcase, handmade bazaar and music venue taking place on March 31 in Hollywood. The event will contain 80 vendors who will display their handmade creations for the public. Alfonso said the magnitude of the event is great for promoting Hollywood and its artists movement. According to the Odd Duck Bazaars website, the 2010 event drew in more than 600 people and 62 vendors, and this year, the Bazaar received more than 200 vendor applications. People need to know this is happening right here at our doorstep, Alfonso said. They dont need to drive down to Miami [to find art]. The Odd Duck Bazaar will take place at the Downtown Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center, located at 1770 Monroe St., from noon to 6 p.m. For more information about participating vendors, visit http://www.oddduckbazaar.com. In addition to creating her artwork, the mother of three wrote and implemented an afterschool art program at Beachside Montessori Village in Hollywood. Off the Canvas exposes students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth grade to various forms of art, including sculpture, wood burning and performing art. It expands their knowledge, she said, from learning about artists in the classroom to creating art outside of it. I was always motivated by art, she said. It always kept me busy, and I wanted that for these kids. Alfonsos future in the art world looks bright, and she will continue to expand her creations. She has already expanded her operations to include decorating mens ties, hair scrunchies and lampshades, and she has no problem experimenting with more objects. I have ADHD when it comes to [my artwork] because I dont ever like to focus on one thing, she said with a small laugh. Every single piece is done by hand and its one of a kind.

Irresponsible consumption of alcohol will impact your life in a devastating manner. Causing an accident while intoxicated can cost a life. However, drinking is not a crime and alcohol is not illegal or coherently evil. Bring on the green beer, but know limits and be responsible. Americans seem to look for any excuse to throw a party and kick back an obscene amount of liquor, and for some reason always tons of cheese in many forms. I would be curious to know how many people truly understand or care about the meaning behind St. Patricks Day. I am not going to interpret what St. Patrick represented or what he did. I just wanted to speak about the party that accompanies the celebration. St. Patricks Day is one of top holidays when it comes to severe intoxication. People who dont normally drinkdo. People who often drink moderately drink heavily. Tradition says, the Irish drink during wakes to honor the dead. Saint Patricks Day is celebrated on the day he was thought to have died, making the holiday similar to his wake. Maybe this explains the traditional drinking. I have had many years of experience in responsible alcohol service. Based on my years of consumption and service, I have compiled a list of tips: REPLENISH-Take a multivitamin before a night of anticipated, ongoing celebration. Alcohol depletes the body of the B complex vitamins and vitamin C. It also further impairs future nutrient absorption, leaving that feeling of being hungover. EAT-Eat something of substance, before you drink alcohol. An empty stomach and alcohol doesnt mix. DRINK-Drink water! Ideally, drink one glass of water per alcoholic drink consumed, stay hydrated. Alternatively, drink some water, any amount helps. COCKTAIL CHOICE-Mixing liquor types, beer and wine can have an adverse outcome. Keep in mind that carbonated beverages are absorbed quicker than non-carbonated. Also, sweet and sugary drinks can contribute to a possible hangover. Clear spirits (like vodka) have fewer impurities, which means lesser harm to the liver. PACE-Those who pound drinks often fizzle out fast and miss out on all the festivities. Enjoy in moderation or at the least pace yourself, so you can endure throughout the night. BE MERRY-A night out should be fun. St. Patricks Day is a festive event. Taking care of overtly drunk friends is embarrassing and not fun. TRANSPORTATIONprogram in the area where they will take passengers and their car home. This program is for members and nonmembers. Waits will be atrocious, but if you plan ahead this a great alternative. The distance they will tow is also limited. for smart phones or connect with a driver in advance and make prior arrangements. Hollywood between Downtown and the Beach, consider the trolley schedule and the water taxi that pulls right up to some cool party destinations. that. Buy the DD dinner, fill up their tank and pay for their tickets to the event. Find a place near you and walk. Or arrange to meet at a friends house near the outing and walk from there. Parking is always a hassle anyway. Walk in groups and only in safe neighborhoods. cabs are impossible to get, call a sober driver. If you know a sober person on St. Patricks Day, they may be a little irritated with a wake-up call at 2 a.m., but most people will respect you for not driving when intoxicated. According to Beth Davies Ryan, global corporate relations director doubles to more than 13 million pints. Enjoy! LETTER FROM THE EDITOR: CONT. ON PAGE 9St. Patricks Day drinking, destinations, drivingHollywood Irish American Ceili Club celebrates 40-year anniversary BY MIRIAM CRONKHITE | Managing Editor miriam@hollywoodgazette.comby Brett Daly The Hollywood Irish American Ceili Club has more than St. Patricks Day to celebrate this month. The Club also will celebrate its 40-year anniversary. Patrick ODea, president of the Club, said its purpose is to celebrate ancient Irish heritage and tradition; to provide a social gathering for singers, dancers and musicians; and to meet old and new Irish-American friends and neighbors. The Club boasts more than 100 members and additional membership is welcome. We have shared our love for all things Irish with thousands of people in South Florida, [and] we have made few changes over the past 40 years, ODea said. The Irish American Ceili Club hosts a Ceili or Irish square dance once a month and also helps support local Irish cultural organizations and businesses. It attempts to educate, inform and celebrate Irish heritage. ODea said the Club will use new media to reach out to new members to keep the Club alive and thriving, which he thinks is extremely important. Not only do they promote Irish tradition, he said, but the Club also benefits the local economy by attracting hundreds of visitors in the winter months. The challenge today is to attract younger members to replace our IrishAmerican retirees, he said. The next Ceili will take place on March 24. The Irish American Ceili Club meets at the American Legion Hall, located at Post 92, 211 North 21st Ave. For more information about the Irish American Ceili Club, call 954 923-2760 or visit http://www. irishamericanceiliclub.com/. 8 MARCH 2012 HOLLYWOOD GAZETTE | 954-962-8180 | WWW.HOLLYWOODGAZETTE.COM

Dear Editor, You published my letter in reference to the Downtown and Beach parking in the most recent issue of the Hollywood Gazette. I just need to comment that our Intergovernmental Affairs person and director of parking, Lorie Mertens-Black, needs to look over her stats because there was a rate increase at the beach of 50 cents, approximately 6 months ago. The rate went from $1.50 to $2.00 per hour on the weekends. -Heather Sabie Ms. Sabie, I believe the statement assuring there was no recent rate increase for beach parking, was referring to the rate increase that was only proposed and not in effect yet. It seems many people are under the impression that there has been a rate increase of Beach parking as a direct result of loss of revenue from Downtown meters. If you are referring to six months ago, I dont think that rate increase was a direct result of the free Downtown parking that was only recently implemented. I do agree that parking on the Beach is expensive and frustrating. However, I dont feel that residents have to choose the Beach or Downtown. Each has its own appeal. If the parking situation is limiting your family beach visits, consider being dropped off or park and take the trolley from Downtown. -Miriam Cronkhite Dear Editor, Im new to the Hollywood area and Im so disappointed to find out that dogs are not allowed on Hollywood Beach or the Broadwalk. Coming from San Diego, Im so used to being able to take my Jack Russell down to the beach every morning and after I get home from work. I have been to the dog beach, but they only operate on the weekends and it doesnt open until 3 p.m. Can you please explain why? Is it because the city doesnt want to or cant afford to pick up after irresponsible dog owners? If thats the case, we could simply enforce a fine for those that dont pick up after themselves and their canine companions. I understand this has been a hot issue in Hollywood, but isnt there something we can do? If they can take out the parking meters in downtown in an attempt to bring in more business, why cant they allow dogs on Hollywood Beach for the same reason? Ive asked around, and many local dog owners avoid the beach because they cant bring their dogs with them. I know it sounds silly, but I am considering moving back to California because of this issue. If anything, the city could allow dogs on Hollywood Beach for a trial period and see how it goes. Im sure local dog owners would behave if it meant our canine friends being allowed on the beach again! Dog Dazed Dear Dog Dazed, The dog debate has been sore spot for Hollywood residents. However, residents of Hollywood have chosen to keep dogs off the Broadwalk and for the most part, the beach. Currently, dogs are limited to a very small section of the beach, on the weekends only, at a fee, for only a few hours in the late afternoon. I believe that Hollywood is rich in dog lovers; it is really more a matter of responsible dog ownership. Dogs that behave are not an issue. Most people that would allow their dogs on the beach, off a leash, to run free among other dogshave a little control over their pet. The problem is the few that are foolish enough to put pets with behavior issues into a public setting. However, this is not the majority of society. Dog owners and dogs should not be treated like second-class citizens. Some communities have taken a proactive approach toward this debate. On Jupiter Beach, a local group formed to save their dog-friendly beach. The group raised money for waste bags and dispensers. They even got volunteers together to help pick up dog waste that is left behind by irresponsible owners. Hollywood has ordinances enforcing the mandatory removal of dog fecal matter on public and private property (fines ranging from $25-100) and stating that owners must be responsible for the actions of their dogs (fines ranging from $50-200). In my opinion, these fines should be steeper. A $500 fine is a real deterrent. I would love to see this issue revisited. Walking dogs on the Hollywood Broadwalk should not be a crime.

Uncle Louie G, which originated in Brooklyn in 1959 and now boasts more than 60 individually owned locations, is known for its gourmet cool treats that are homemade using family recipes and highquality ingredients. Morales became familiar with Uncle Louie G through his daughter, who works at one of the Brooklyn locations. He was impressed with the company and its products, and the timing was right to move back to South Florida and open his own business. Gourmet Italian ices and ice cream have always been a love of mine, and to find a good one is not easy, he said. Uncle Louie G provides that quality product! Morales mission to bring a taste of Brooklyn to Downtown Hollywood has been well-received by the community. Ive had positive feedback from all my customers, he said. Theyve all been very happy with the service and with my product. Everybodys coming back. Uncle Louie G offers 29 ice cream flavors that include Vanilla Snickers, Apple Pie ala Mode and Harvest Pumpkin Pie, and Italian ices in 40 flavors that include Coney Island Cotton Candy, Killer Kiwi and Vanilla Peanut Butter with Chocolate Covered Pretzels. The store also serves milkshakes, root beer floats, smoothies, slushies and Brooklyn egg creams. Morales researched locations from the Miami-Dade/Broward County Line to Boca Raton before choosing the historic downtown arts and entertainment district because of its unique character and aesthetic appeal. I like Downtown Hollywood. The City really beautified this area, Morales said. It seemed like a nice place to open my new business. Uncle Louie G is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. Indoor and patio seating is available.

by Caron Conway A prime property in Downtown Hollywood was recently sold and will be transformed into an arts hub of the community. The 12,500-square-foot corner building at 1955 Harrison St. formerly housed the Arts Academy of Hollywood, a performing and visual arts educational facility that closed its doors three years ago. Developer Jerry Mintz sold the building Feb. 8 to Ben Cohen, who also owns the Ramada hotel on Harrison Street and three other downtown properties. Cohen characterized his vision for the site as a marketplace for the arts where visual, performing, culinary and fashion pursuits will be showcased. He said the new destination will be a unique addition to the historic downtown arts and entertainment district. The two-story building, constructed in the 1950s in the Art Deco/Moderne architectural style, will include a rooftop garden for holding private events, Cohen said. The buildings interior has already been demolished, and the foundation is being reinforced to accommodate the rooftop venue. The building will have an elevator in addition to an interior staircase. The plans also include a new faade that will incorporate the buildings existing special characteristics. Cohen expects it to take between eight months to a year to complete the project. In the meantime, he is shopping for a national food and beverage brand or local chain to come on board and is finetuning his arts venue concept with input from the community. I am in touch with a lot of arts organizations that want to join, Cohen said. I do have the vision. I feel this is going to be a cornerstone for the downtown. To suggest potential offerings at the new arts destination, call Ben Cohen at 954-325-2887 or e-mail him at BenCohenREC@aol.com. Muzart is an organization that offers educational enrichment programs in the arts. Soon they will be offering an AfroBrazilian form that blends dance, martial arts and acrobatics into one. This martial art was created by Africans then brought to Brazil from many parts of Africa as a mean of selfprotection and a way to fight for their own freedom. During its early years, Capoeira was disguised as a dance in order to be practiced openly. Today, it is widely known and practiced in more than 60 nations around the world. Class instructor, Ruben Vagalume Lopez has nine years of experience and a solid reputation in the world of Capoeira. He has introduced it to universities, art schools and television. Classes are 45 to 60 minutes of constant movement: a dynamic warm up followed by Capoeira moves and ending with fun exercises or music. Capoeira will begin at the end of March. Classes will start on Tuesday afternoons with a 4:30 p.m. class for Level I (ages 3-5), followed by a 5:30 p.m. class for Level II (ages 6-10). For more information, visit www. muzartkidz.net or call 954-924-1133. Muzart is located at 1205 S. 21 Ave. in Hollywood.

PEOPLE Accomplished senior athlete JoAnn Sampson is living proof that its never too late to pursue your passion. The 71-year-old runner has been ranked No. 1 in Florida in her age division for the past six years and currently is ranked fourth in both the nation and in the world. She ran her first race at age 62. Sampson had retired after a 35-year career as a middle school teacher with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools when a newspaper article on the South Florida Senior Games struck a chord with her. Although she had never competed in any track and field event, she decided to sign up for the 100-meter race. I had never heard of the Senior Games in my life, Sampson said. When I was in high school, they didnt even have track and field for girls. Maybe that was my calling, and it was stolen from me. Maybe that was a talent that I always had. Deciding that the race was an opportunity for another career, Sampson immediately started training. She walked, jogged and ran 5 to 8 miles five days a week, and she did yoga and stretching exercises in the evening. At age 62, Sampson competed in the 2002 South Florida Senior Games, where she placed first in the 100-meter race with a time of 21 seconds and qualified for the Florida Senior Games State Championships. There she beat her previous time, clocking in at 19:44 seconds, to bring home the silver medal. Over the years, Sampson has been climbing up the ladder, adding events 50-, 200and 800-meter races, the 1-mile race and the shot put along with competitions to her busy schedule, including the National Senior Games, Masters Invitational Track Meet, Atlanta Senior Olympics, USA Track & Field National Masters Championships, Southeastern USA Track & Field Master Championships and the Southeastern Masters Regional Championships. Sampsons strongest event is the 100-meter race a distance nearly equal to the length of a football field with a personal best time of 14.3 seconds. She spends two days a week on the track, where she works with two coaches, and three days a week in the gym with a personal trainer. Its hard work; it really is, said Sampson, a mother of three and grandmother of three who volunteers at the Hepburn Center, social services center in Hallandale Beach, where she lives. There are other challenges as well, including the expense of competing in out-of-town events and the ever-present threat of injury. Sampson fell near the finish line at a race in 2004 and suffered a herniated disc that was pressing on her sciatic nerve. She couldnt walk for an entire month but refused back surgery, opting instead for physical therapy and chiropractic treatment. Her doctors told her to give up running. But that wasnt even an option for the determined senior athlete, who strives to be the best she can be and inspires others to do the same. Whats rewarding to me is when Im able to get other seniors to join, she said. Sampson is also able to combine her first love, teaching, with her passion for running, sharing her story with people of all ages at schools in Miami-Dade and Broward, including Hollywood Hills High and McNicol Middle, as well as at churches, senior agencies and other facilities. I motivate them, and I just let them know that they motivate me, Sampson said. Were all in this together. And she has a special message for young people: Age is nothing but a number. Its whats in your heart that matters. Dont fear getting old. The self-described youthful senior athlete would like to serve as an example to an even wider audience. Her dream is to secure sponsors to help her defray travel expenses and further promote physical fitness and good health. She visualizes herself appearing in a sports commercial or modeling sports attire or seeing her picture on a health poster, billboard, energy drink bottle or cereal box. They really dont give senior athletes our props like they should because we really are no different than young athletes, Sampson said.

by Miriam Cronkhite A new art studio in Hollywood has combined inspiration, instruction and amusement in a class titled pARTy. Kyle Harris hosts several types of art classes at Harris Art Studio, but during the pARTy classes, guests create an original piece of work with Harris help. Artists are welcome to bring adult beverages to enjoy while painting wine key and glasses are provided. Participants can choose an image from the photographs, paintings and art provided within the studio or they can bring their own photo to recreate. Harris will assist in choosing the right color combinations, the correct brush and the most effective stroke, for the desired outcome. She helps her students approach the empty canvas one step at a time, from background to finishing touches. Harris encourages artists of all levels to attend. The reward of seeing someone with little or no confidence create something that makes them feel good, makes me feel good, she said. The studio provides a casual, comfortable setting within a creative environment. Snacks, music and art supplies are included in the $35 fee, along with artistic guidance. Throughout the session, artists comment and encourage each other as they browse stages of everyones work. Inspiring each other to create new and exciting creations, many attendees are very surprised and pleased with their personal interpretation of something that may have seemed taunting to recreate. They are then encouraged and challenged to continue painting. Francesca, an adult student who has been painting with me for five weeks, comes in each week and wants to try something new, Harris said. She has created beautiful landscapes, a lion and this week she wanted to try people, so shes working on a painting of the Beatles. We cant wait to see how it comes out. Class enrollment is limited to 12 guests per event. In addition, Harris offers painting classes for kids. Six-year-old Rebekah has painted with Harris for five weeks. She said to Harris last week, in a simple and insightful statement, Paint is like magic on the canvas. Harris also offers services creating personalized gifts to home designs. The March pARTys will be held March 10 and March 31. The studio is located at 3251 Hollywood Blvd., Suite 280, in the Target Plaza. Create a magical canvas, with a vino inspiration by calling 781-308-1379 or by visiting www.creativedesignsbykyle.webs. com.

by Caron Conway Third annual Odd Duck Bazaar makes its new home in Downtown Hollywood: Handmade bazaar and indie craft fair set for March 31 at Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center Odd Duck Handmade Bazaar and Indie Craft Fair a popular artisan showcase, handmade bazaar, craft fair and music venue rolled into one event will be making its new home in Downtown Hollywood March 31 at the Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center. The third annual event, which is organized by Hollywood Craft Mafia members Shelley Mitchell and Christine Klein, previously ran at the Old Davie School Museum, where last year it attracted more than 1,500 crafts enthusiasts. Mitchell said that after considering numerous other venues, building a new nest for Odd Duck Bazaar in Hollywoods historic downtown arts and entertainment district was a natural move. From Odd Ducks inception, we wanted to make our home in Hollywood, said Mitchell, a Hollywood resident. The downtown area is an ideal spot for an event like ours with a strong focus on local artisans. This year things fell into place, and we are excited to make our move with the assistance of the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency. This years event will feature more than 80 crafters, artists and food vendors, as well as live art and live music by acoustic performers that include Sosos and Bela Kawalec. The organization Trash to Treasure also will supervise the DIY (Do It Yourself) Tent, offering make-and-take craft projects for do-it-yourself hobbyists. Odd Duck Handmade Bazaar and Indie Craft Fair caters to those who are seeking unusual niche handmade products as opposed to mass-produced mainstream merchandise. This years wares will include apparel and accessories, jewelry, pottery, soaps, henna body art, vintage items, artisan tiles and mosaics, reclamation art utilizing recycled materials and much more. Odd Duck Bazaar offers a meeting space for handcrafters and shoppers, Klein said. We concentrate on keeping a mix of styles, products and price points to offer locals the opportunity to purchase affordable, unique handmade items directly from the artisan. The third annual Odd Duck Handmade Bazaar and Indie Craft Fair will take place from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 31 at the Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center, 1770 Monroe St. in Downtown Hollywood. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children younger than 12. The first 100 attendees will receive a reusable hand-screened swag bag containing a handmade item from one of the participating vendors.

More than 132 golfers hit the links at the 18th annual Conine All-Star Golf Classic, one of South Floridas longest running sports celebrity golf tournaments. The event raised more than $255,000 for Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital Foundation, which helps underwrite the operations of the Conine Clubhouse, a home-away-from-home for families of children in the care of Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital. Hosted by former major league ballplayer Jeff Conine and his wife, Cindy, with Calder Casino & Race Course returning as title sponsor, the day took place at the nationally renowned course at The Club at Emerald Hills in Hollywood. The course has played host to the event since its inception, with all costs and expenses graciously donated by Mr. and Mrs. Michael Fineberg, owners of The Club at Emerald Hills. Players enjoyed a sports celebrity in each foursome, the opportunity to win valuable prizes at all 18 holes and a poker tournament. The Conine All-Star Golf Classic has 33 teams participating and sold out for the third consecutive year. Celebrities who participated in this years event included Jason Taylor, Chris Volstad, Gaby Sanchez, Tony Nathan, Bob Brudzinski and Anthony Carter. Its never easy to have a child in the hospital, but parents can take comfort in having a place to stay just across the street from where their son or daughter is being treated, said Kevin Janser, vice president and executive director of the Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital Foundation. It is the type of family-focused outreach we believe in and something Jeff and Cindys ongoing commitment to fundraising helps make possible. Plans are already underway for the second annual Conine Celebrity Poker Classic sponsored by Calder Casino & Race Course scheduled for September 2012. To register, learn more or make a donation, call Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital Foundation at 954-265-3454 or visit www.jdchfoundation.org.

The change is being made to encourage cruise line guests to explore cities before flying home. The program will be continuing for 2013 and is being offered on the Royal Caribbean and Celebrity ships. Holland America ships may soon sell the excursion for the fall 2012 and 2013 seasons. The Explore Florida card provides discounts to local vendors. The strategy is to provide guests with a value-added reason for visiting Hollywood. There is no cost to businesses, except for the discount offered to visitors during the cruise season.
