Cinema Paradiso Hollywood will provide quality film programming and cultural events on a year-round basis in the heart of the historic downtown district, home to an eclectic mix of restaurants and cafs, art galleries, unique boutiques, specialty shops and live music venues in a pedestrian-friendly village environment. Cinema Paradiso Hollywood is only Broward Countys second art house cinema. The original Fort Lauderdale-based Cinema Paradiso at 503 SE Sixth St. was founded in 1998, and the Broward County Film Society, also known as the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF), had been considering expanding the non-profit venues operations for several years. Supporters of the new theater say it is an ideal addition to the downtown arts, music and entertainment district, which is reviving the dinner-and-a-movie concept after a 17-year absence of a cinema. The 3,000-square-foot, 82-seat digital cinema includes a bar that by the end of the year will serve beer, wine and cocktails, and a concession stand featuring typical movie theater fare that will not compete with downtown eateries. FLIFF president and CEO Gregory von Hausch said he is amazed at the support from the community, city officials and staff, and the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), which will assist the cinema through the annual purchase of 3,000 movie tickets a cost of $30,000 a year to be distributed to beach visitors for promotional purposes. The downtown location was chosen for the proximity of all the pedestrians, all of the restaurants and the shops, von Hausch said. Its a good environment for us to be part of, another element of whats going on there with the arts and entertainment. Cinema Paradiso Hollywood will offer screenings of art, foreign and American independent films, documentaries and retro movies, as well as special events via satellite. Screenings of three to four different films per day will be offered from late morning to well into the night. Von Hausch said musical performances and latenight comedy nights are also being considered. Itll show things that you wont see elsewhere, for the most part, he said. Right now the skys the limit. Cinema Paradiso Hollywood opened its doors Oct. 19 with offerings from the 28th annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Multiple daily screenings through Nov. 11 include features, documentaries and shorts from around the globe. We promised the community it would get funded and done in time for our great Film Festival and guess what Hollywood? We did it!, said a grateful Alan Koslow, FLIFF Chairman, after successfully spearheading the fundraising efforts. I thank our loyal supporters, backers and community partners all for making it possible. Its going to be a really terrific community and cultural gem of an asset for many, many years to come! After the film festival closes, Well go into our regular Cinema Paradiso programming, von Hausch said. Itll be business as usual but with our business, its always very unusual. For more information on Cinema Paradiso Hollywood, call 954-525-3456 (FILM) or visit www.fliff. com. A complete schedule of Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival screenings is available at www.fliff.com/Fort-Lauderdale-Film-Festival-2013.

By David Volz The two Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) districts are moving along nicely. The Hollywood Beach CRA includes 293 acres. Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort at Johnson Street and AIA is going to become a major force in the development of the City. It will feature and island theme. It is expected to become an enormous destination for Hollywood Beach and a major turn in the reputation of the City. Starwood Capital is the major investor in the project and is investing $85 million in the project. The CRA is investing $23 million in tax increment revenue. Of that number $13 million will be for construction and $10 million will be for fixtures, furniture and equipment, according to Jorge Camejo, executive director of the Hollywood CRA. The Margaritaville project is well underway. At this time 1,000 piles have been completed. This means the foundation work is nearly done. The project will be complete in the fall of 2015 It will include 349 rooms and seven bars and restaurants, retail space, a wave ride and a garage with 1056 parking spaces. Also, the Hollywood Bandshell will be renovated and refaced. Work is underway for the Downtown Hollywood CRA which includes 580 acres. There will be a cinema project at 2008 Hollywood Boulevard. Cinema Paradiso Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival will open a location there before the end of the year. This will bring first run movies to Hollywood. It is a nonprofit organization meant to bring arthouse movies to the City. Work is continuing on the U.S. One Corridor and the Dixie Highway Corridor. When complete this road development project will support downtown redevelopment and create more livable communities. It will mean more transit oriented and pedestrian and bicycle friendly areas, according to Raelin Storey, spokesperson for the City of Hollywood. On October 10, the Hollywood Beach Business Association held a meeting. It was an opportunity for people in the community to learn about developments taking place along the beach. There was discussion about the Margaritaville project and how it will benefit the City. A number of people expressed concern that the project would make it hard for people to visit existing businesses. They said that construction activities and parking issues would cause people to avoid the area. Some longtime local businesses would struggle to survive.

Hollywood holds a special event for artists to participate in several times yearly, coinciding with its monthly thirdSaturday Artwalk. En Plein Aire Hollywood is a live 3hour painting competition during which visual artists are invited to create a live scene from within the Downtown Hollywood area. A Pennsylvania artist recently took the challenge and emerged a two-time winner. Anni Matsick of State College is a childrens illustrator who discovered the contest when she first visited the city in March. She chose Montecristo Lounge as a subject after spotting it across from the Ramada Inn on Harrison Street where she was staying. When registering, Matsick told En Plein Aire coordinator Larry Joe Miller she is mainly a figure painter who enjoys drawing people and he said that could be an advantage. Her pencil and watercolor piece showing cigar smokers sitting outside the popular establishment took first prize of $150 in the Professional category. Matsick visited again during the October 19 competition and chose the Octopus Garden at 1942 Hollywood Boulevard as her subject, winning another first prize. From 1:00 til 4:00 pm with her easel set up on the sidewalk, people came by to see her work in progress, asking questions and making appreciative comments. The artist explained that she was inspired to use charcoal pencil and tones of blue-gray watercolor because of the subdued gray and blue of the stucco front and awning. As customers came and went they were added to the painting. Close to the end, a little girl stopped to peek at the art and was added to the composition, much to her delight. Matsick summarizes her works by saying, I chose places where a lot of people gather, and used the place as a frame. Back in her State College studio, Matsick creates works for picture books and other publications. Samples from her 30-year career in childrens illustration can be seen on her website at www. annimatsick.com. The next En Plein Aire Hollywood competition is set for January 18. Watch for details on the Downtown Hollywood ArtWalk website at: http://www. visithollywoodfl.org/artwalk.aspx For more information, call 954-257-6862 or 954-923-2030, or e-mail larryjoemiller@ hotmail.com or comfortzonespa@gmail. com. En Plein Aire competition draws national artists to Downtown Hollywood Next one: Jan.18 As Floridas New Ban on Texting While Driving Law is being implemented, the Hollywood Professional Firefighters Association has launched its own Stop the Texts / Stop the Wrecks campaign to educate on the dangers of texting while driving, and hopefully help save lives and avoid tragedy. They have dedicated their website homepage (www.hpff1375. org) to providing information on the topic that includes a link to a printable brochure created and aimed at educating Hollywood residents and the South Florida Community at large about the dangerous effects of distracted driving. Additionally, they have acquired a wrecked vehicle that they will deliver and stage for a predetermined amount of time at any location who requests it (Schools, Civic and/or Housing Associations, Businesses, etc.), as a traveling exhibit, in order to emphasize the destruction that may be caused by a crash, and to drive home the point.

The City of Hollywood is holding its third annual Veterans Day Barbecue on Sunday, November 10, 2013. The Veterans Day Barbecue began as an initiative of Mayor Peter Bober to make sure Hollywood veterans and active service members could enjoy a picnicstyle celebration in their honor over the Veterans Day weekend. Now in its third year, the barbecue is a chance for residents to give back to local Veterans, active military personnel and their families with an afternoon of fun, entertainment and delicious food. Mayor Bober works the grill, while representatives of the Boy Scouts, Daughters of the American Revolution Captain Alexander Quarrier Chapter and many other community members take this opportunity to spend the afternoon serving those who made the commitment to serve our country. There will be live music by Florida National Guard Band, Dogface Soldier, and a banner plane flyover to honor veterans. Service Dogs 4 Service Men will be there with a special presentation. A City of Hollywood fire truck will be on-hand for children to explore and be sure to bring a small photo to display on the Wall of Honor. The International Association of Fire Fighters will be recognizing military personnel for their service during WWII through present. The City of Hollywood invites all Hollywood veterans and active duty service men and women, to join the celebration at noon at Topeekeegee Yugnee (TY) Park, 3300 North Park Road. The park entrance fee is free for those attending the barbecue. Guest capacity is limited to 500. To reserve your spot, please R.S.V.P. 954.921.3404, Special Events. Veterans Day BBQ set for Nov. 10 at TY Park Hollywood expands police force By David Volz The City Hollywood is recruiting more police officers. Hollywood is in the process of recruiting 28 more officers to fill existing vacancies it currently has on the police force. Hollywood has budgeted for 314 officers and now has 2.2 officers per 1,000 residents. In the future Hollywood would like to have 2.4 officers per 1,000 residents. To achieve this goal, Hollywood would have to expand its force by 25 additional police officers. The City would have to budget for these positions. This is a future goal. We would like to increase the number of officers so that we are at full staff, said Raelin Storey, spokesperson for the City of Hollywood. The 28 officer vacancies are for existing budgeted positions that we are short. We will fill those vacancies. The positions have become open because officers retire or leave for other reasons such as better salary and benefits elsewhere. The new police contract now in place helps to restore some benefits and salary and puts Hollywood in middle of pack when compared to other agencies in Broward, according to Storey. Over the last year, Hollywood hired 44 police personnel, the most ever hired in one year. The City processed 2,200 applications. The City of Hollywood is considering the implementation of a CCTV camera program in certain high crime areas. The first area that would be targeted would be the Federal Highway corridor. This is considered a high crime area. Research shows that one camera is equivalent to ten officers. If the cameras are in key locations you are able to expand the eyes on the street. This will help us police smarter. Eventually we would like this to be a citywide program. We can use technology to be a force multiplier in coverage of the City, said Storey. Also, Hollywood will be working with the Broward County School Board to have school resource officers patrol the citys elementary schools. There is a role for school resources officers in elementary schools. The school board is concerned about the violence in light of what has been happening around the nation, said Storey. 30

THE LIGHTER SIDE A few weeks ago an article came out in the Huffington Post titled: CrossFits Dirty Secret, and it discussed Rhabdomyolysis and its presence in the CrossFit world (Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of muscle fibers that leads to the release of muscle fiber contents (myoglobin) into the bloodstream. Myoglobin is harmful to the kidney and can cause kidney damage). As if there werent enough misconceptions about CrossFit circulating mainstream media and conversation, (and a TV report on the same topic) people are now running around scared thinking that a CrossFit workout could cause Rhabdo and they could die (I literally got three emails asking me about this). This is like asking: If I go bowling, could I break my arm. Uhhyesmaybe, but youll probably have a better chance of winning this weeks Powerball!! In a nation where 2 out of 3 people are overweight or obese so we REALLY need another reason to discourage people from working out? Do we really need to instill MORE fear into a nation of people that spend more time in drive-thru lines and glued to their couches than they do to moving their bodies? Afterall, most people are not at home sitting on the couch because they caught a bad case of Rhabdo! Unfortunately, this does not surprise me, from a society addicted to drama and negativity (dont believe me, watch the news for 10 minutes). Whenever something or someone is in the spotlight for too long, the haters, the skeptics the naysayers will appear; those individuals who insist on spreading the myths that CrossFit is for people: who are already in shape or athletic, in the military, want to get hurt, and perhaps now, who want to contract Rhabdo. Im not saying that its not necessary to take precautions and educate yourself on the potential risks and side effects of any physical endeavor. Rhabdo does exist, and it VERY occasionally occurs in individuals who dont listen to their bodies, exceed their physical limitations, and perhaps, improperly coached. However, I do not agree nor appreciate the sensationalizing and overdramatizing of its presence in the CrossFit world. CrossFits dirty little secret? Give me a BREAK!!!! Clearly, when you challenge your body and your physical limitations, and participate in intense activity, injury and harm is ALWAYS a possibility (By the way, this is why you have sign a waiver when you join a ANY gym or participate in potentially dangerous physical activity) Yes, you can get hurt doing CrossFit just like you can get hurt playing tennis, basketball, roller blading or bungee jumping. This is why knowing your limitations, good coaching, sufficient knowledge and muted egos are prerequisites for not only CrossFit, but any high intensity or potentially risky endeavor. However, instead of focusing on the occasional occurences of Rhabdo that occur in the CF community each year (Ive known one in my 4 and half years year of doing CrossFit) or the two people you know who hurt their back doing a CrossFit WOD, why not shift that focus on the hundreds of thousands of people around the world, like Ben Garcia, who are changing their bodies, their health and their lives using this methodology. Bens Testimonial: I just wanted to let you know how awesome your CrossFit 954 is. I have lost 34 lbs in 4 months since I began. I attended an event 3 weeks ago where 40+ close friends had competitive games at the park. I ended up being the top dog and it felt great I had tons of compliments. Recently we had an 8 man tennis series and I went 18-0 to win the first place trophy. One more thing, I broke 200 in bowlling with a 209 for the first time ever and it was on our fourth game, when everyone else could barely walk down the lane a throw a ball. I felt invincible. I feel like I can do anything! Lets focus on the fact that CrossFit is growing 350% annually and there are nearly 7,000 affiliate locations, which would NOT be the case if people were having more bad experiences than good ones. That would NOT be the case if more people were being injured than transformed. So heres the bottom line. Im not encouraging naivet or going blindly into something that you know nothing about, do your research, know the risks, but beware of the HATERS! You will always find what you are looking for; seek and you shall find. If youre looking to find the worst in something (or someone), or a reason NOT to do something, you WILL find it (Rhabdo, after all DOES exist). There are critics just as there are fans. However, I encourage you to focus more on the GOOD that something (or someone) can bring to your life!If the odds are that you stand a MUCH greater chance to benefit than to be harmed, I would argue, thats a risk worth taking!

By David Volz Changes will be coming to State Road A1A in Hollywood over the next few years catering to the community as a whole instead of only cars. On October 15, a public workshop was held at the Hollywood Beach Marriott. The purpose was to offer a presentation on the State Road A1A Scenic Highway and to gather input from the public. People could learn about some of the different visions for improvements and changes along SR A1A in Hollywood. During the meeting, Jorge Camejo, executive director of the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) gave a presentation on potential improvements and beautifications to SR AIA from Hollywood Boulevard to Sheridan Street. Improvements would be consistent with the complete streets concept. This is a type of planning that is going into effect many communities as a way of having a more balanced approach to transportation and to make streets safer and more attractive. Incomplete streets those designed with only cars in mind limit transportation choices by making walking, bicycling, and taking public transportation inconvenient, unattractive, and, too often, dangerous. Another important goal is to and to boost economic development, according to Manual Pila, program manager for the Hollywood CRA. Among the possible improvements would be the widening of sidewalks, widening bike paths, reconfiguring traffic lanes, adding landscaping and crosswalks all along the corridor of A1A, said Pila. The workshop included a slide presentation that showed how the concept could be tested over time. There will be more meetings before any major changes are considered. Planning work will include the Florida Department of Transportation, the City of Hollywood and Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization. Construction and landscaping work is not expected to begin until 2015. This is the beginning of the process that will include several years of design and planning and many opportunities for the community to be involved, said Pila. For more information, visit www. hollywoodpinescorridorproject.com. Public workshop presents plans for Complete Street design for A1A from Hollywood Blvd. to Sheridan St. Jakes on the Beach hosts fundraiser for local no kill animal organization There is no singular design prescription for Complete Streets; each one is unique and responds to its community context. A complete street may include: sidewalks, bike lanes (or wide paved shoulders), special bus lanes, comfortable and accessible public transportation stops, frequent and safe crossing opportunities, median islands, accessible pedestrian signals, curb extensions, narrower travel lanes, roundabouts, and more. Image courtesy of National Complete Streets Coalition Be Kind to Animals Rescue recently had a fundraiser at Jakes on the Beach with live music from Diamond and Stills, House Band and the Sosos with Kelly Halloran on Sunday Oct. 20th raising over $800. Founded in 2009, Be Kind To Animals is a Hollywood-based 501c3 no kill rescue organization dedicated to saving lives and caring for dogs and cats that are abused, neglected and homeless. With a focus on the seniors left to die in kill shelters. For more information, call 954-6627597. How Much Is Your Home Worth ...Really?
