DEVELOPMENT NEWS Major improvements are planned for the Hollywood Boulevard Roadway Corridor between City Hall Circle and Dixie Highway. This will be considered a Complete Street project. During a recent meeting, the Hollywood Commission passed a resolution to approve development plans for the Corridor. Hollywood has received $6,800,000 in funding for the project in conjunction with the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization. The City of Hollywood applied from a grant from the MPO and was awarded this grant. The City is expected to follow Complete Street guidelines in developing the project. The work will include extensive new landscaping, new five-foot wide buffered bicycle lanes, clearly marked cross walks, pedestrian scale lighting, on street parking, and median islands. There will be ornamental plantings along the corridor including trees, palms, flowering shrubs and ground cover. There will be ornamental shade structures at crosswalks. The parking areas will changed from angled parking spaces to parallel parking spaces. There will be a reduction in the parking spaces from 192 spaces to 162 spaces. Some business owners have expressed concern about this reduction in spaces. However, during the meeting, it was pointed out that there are around 2,000 spaces behind businesses in that immediate area. The Broward MPO will use this project as a model for other projects throughout the County. According to the plan, construction will begin in 2016 and be complete by summer of 2017. Commissioner Richard Blattner is excited about the planned development. This will be fantastic. This section of Hollywood Boulevard has not been improved. It has been a traffic and parking nightmare. It will be transformed in a positive way. It will be beautiful. It will give people who live in the nearby residential communities and own businesses in the area hope, said Blattner. Vice Mayor Patricia Asseff said she is very excited about the planned development of the corridor. I really like the plan. They will work with all the stakeholder there and deal with the parking situation. The City will work the business owners to make sure the parking situation is taken care of and that we have good landscaping and lighting. We will get the alleys redone so businesses can receive deliveries more easily. Business owners and residents will have opportunity to have input and discussion about this new plan. It will be a walkable neighborhood, a complete street. The Hollywood commissioners were pleased with the plans for the corridor project. Mayor Peter Bober said, I think it is fabulous. It will slow traffic down and it will beautify the roadway. The residents will be pleased with the results, said Bober. Additional Complete Street projects planned for Hollywood include the FEC Corridor Greenway from Pembroke Road to Sheridan Street, Johnson Street from the CI0 Canal to U.S. One and from 56th Avenue to 64th Avenue, Tyler Street from Young Circle to Dixie Highway, State Road Seven from Pembroke to Atlanta Street, AIA from Sheridan Street to Hollywood Boulevard and along South Federal Highway from Young Circle to Pembroke Road. Funding will have to be made available for these projects to be completed.

Major icons in the international street art movement, Chaz and Bob are the artists behind the feel-good, high contrast artwork. Originally from England, but now residing in Amsterdam, the duos collaborative approach mixes Chazs smiling lads with Bobs realistic contoured illustrations. Chaz explains TLPs mural concept for the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project (DHMP): We always try to project a positive theme in our pieces. Our signature characters have happy faces and are depicted doing everyday things in the world they live in. In this particular mural one of our characters is making adjustments to the aquarium he is looking after. As this mural is in the coastal community of Hollywood, Florida, we threaded an aquatic theme with science and nature with an overall moral of looking after each other. 5

COMMUNITY NEWS Hollywood residents who want another tool in protecting their property from burglary will now have one. The Hollywood Police Department is introducing SmartWater CSI, a crime prevention strategy that is designed to deter thieves. SmartWater offers a forensic taggant. It is a liquid that looks and feels like water and comes in a kit that comes from the SmartWater Technology, Ltd., a company based in London, England. The individual registers with SmartWater. The forensic taggant is good for marking valuable such as televisions, computers, jewelry tools and other personal and business assets. The customer rubs the SmartWater onto an item. It can be applied to vehicles and boats. SmartWaters forensic taggant solution is versatile. The traceable liquid carries a forensic code which is registered to an address or location. Once applied, it is almost impossible to remove and can only be seen under ultraviolet (UV) light. Forensic analysis provides conclusive proof of ownership, according to the SmartWater website. This will help police return stolen items to their rightful owners, said Joann Hussey, spokesperson for the City of Hollywood. The Hollywood Police Department is distributing SmartWater kits in select neighborhoods in Hollywood. So far Highland Gardens, Driftwood, North Central, Hollywood Lakes and portions of Hollywood Hills have been identified.

The City of Hollywood Chorus is rehearsing on Tuesday nights after work in preparation to perform at various city events. The chorus was developed by Co-Workers Aiding and Responding to Employees (CARE). Lisa Blouin, member of the CARE Committee came up with the idea of a chorus for City of Hollywood employees. A survey was sent out to employees and there was enough interest to make the chorus a reality. There are now about 11 members in the organization. The chorus members realized they needed a conductor and reached out to the Hollywood Music Club. The president of the Club, Chai Chien became the conductor. The chorus members offer interesting backgrounds. Arceli Redila is an associate planner for Hollywood and is an experienced musician. She is a former member of Himig, a choral group from the Philippines that has toured the United States and Canada. She is now also singing with Dinggin, a Philippino-American Choir. Sheldon Gunter is the athletic coordinator for the City of Hollywood and has an extensive background in music. He is an associate choir director for his church. Lisa Wellington has served as a park ranger in the Parks and Recreation Department. She has sung with the Manchester Chorale in Jamaica. She was a member of the police department in Jamaica. The new chorus has aspirations of attending various city hall events and most recently performed at the City Commission meeting on Oct. 1. Lisa Blouin is pleased with the new chorus, she said. When we sing as a group we are creating a bond that goes beyond just making new friends. Im getting to know other people differently on a deeper level. The chorus inspires you, makes you feel better and its one of the most amazing things I have ever been involved in. Work is awesome but the chorus makes my work even better. The groups first performance was a selection of patriotic songs on Sept. 11 at City Hall in the lobby.

MUNICIPAL NEWS The City of Hollywood has a new phone number for all non-emergency police or fire needs. As of October 1, 2014, residents who want to speak with someone from the police or fire departments on a non-emergency basis should call 954 764 HELP (4357). This number would be for noise complaints or concerns about suspicious activities. For emergencies, always call 911. People should call Hollywoods general help line at 954-967-4357 for general City information and inquiries. Callers will receive a menu of City departments. After-hours, callers will be able to leave a message or can be routed to a call-taker if their concern requires and urgent response such as a water break. This new phone number is part of a regional consolidated dispatch system. Hollywood is the final city to join the unified operation, most other Broward cities have unified 911 operations with Broward County. In 2002, residents of Broward County voted for a countywide emergency response system to address a fragmented system of emergency call processing and dispatching. With the increasing use of cell phones, a regional 911 system will eliminate inefficiencies, reduce costs and result in better emergency response because calls will not have to be transferred to numerous dispatch centers. Funding for the consolidation of 911 dispatch systems throughout Broward County was approved by the County Commission in 2013, according to Joann Hussey, spokesperson for the City of Hollywood. Hollywood rolls out new non-emergency phone number effective Oct. 1 STOP LITTERING. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The Hollywood CRAs Anti-Litter Campaign Is Catching On. Following the launch of the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agencys Anti-Litter Campaign, Hollywood Police have started issuing citations for littering on Hollywood Beach. The multi-faceted Anti-Litter Campaign has garnered the attention and support of Hollywoods residential and business communities. The Hollywood Beach Business Association (HBBA) is a great supporter of the cause and has committed to having employees wear buttons that read Stop Littering -Because I Care. In addition, the HBBA is dedicated to the campaign and complying with the City Code which prohibits disposables in the outdoor caf areas. The anti-litter campaign includes banners showcasing sea life made of litter with the headline, Stop Littering You are Not Alone and $0 In The Can, $500 In The Sand line the Broadwalk. Large format signs with the same messaging greet visitors at the parking garage common areas and soon electrical box wraps at the Broadwalk street-ends will reiterate the same. It takes a community to make a difference. Hollywood Beach is truly a magical place to live, work and visit and as a business owner of over 20 years, here at the beach, who has seen this area grow and develop, it is with great pride that my restaurant partakes in such an important effort to inform people of the effects of littering, remarked Debra Case, Owner of Ocean Alley Restaurant on Hollywood Beach Broadwalk and current HBBA President when asked about the campaign. Since the campaigns launch in June, Hollywood Beach has in fact been cleaning up. Public Works is out on the sand every morning with its rakes picking up debris and the Citys and CRAs Beach Maintenance continue to pick up trash by hand left behind during the day, every day. Residents are taking notice too. Ken Brown, owner of Gallery 2014 in Downtown Hollywood and avid beachgoer comments, I think we need to recognize when the City takes the advice of citizens seriously and does the right thing. The beach looks good. It may still need some deep cleaning and incoming trash from the ocean will continue to be a battle, but I think we should recognize where the City does the right thing just as much as complain when they don't. The Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency has taken note that littering is a serious issue and is adamant about not letting offenders slide by. There is too much at stake not to give this issue the attention it deserves and we are invested in the health and wellness of our ecosystem at Hollywood Beach, preserving its beauty, safety and vitality for all to enjoy, comments Jorge Camejo, Executive Director of The Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency. The Anti-Litter Campaign is moving full steam ahead. Beach patrons are encouraged to become ambassadors by making sure that trash is disposed of properly. There are approximately 300 trash and recycling receptacles at Hollywood Beach leaving no excuse for litter. 97.02 WHAT CONSTITUTES OFFENSIVE LITTERING. A person commits the violation of offensive littering if he or she creates an objectionable stench or degrades the beauty and appearance of property or detracts from the natural cleanliness or safety of property by: (A) Discarding or depositing, or causing to be discarded or deposited, any litter upon the property of another or upon public property or any public way except in the manner permitted by law. (B) Permitting any litter to be so discarded or deposited from any business establishment or from any boat or vehicle of which he is the registered owner or operator, provided, however, that this division shall not apply to a person owning or operating a vehicle transporting passengers for hire subject to regulation by any governmental entity, or any public school bus transporting children to and from the public schools. (C) Permitting the accumulation of litter on his/ her property or the right-of-way abutting the property of which he/she is the tenant, or owner or operator. ('72 Code, 13-34) (Ord. O-74-85, passed 8-7-74; Am. Ord. O-89-69, passed 11-15-89; Am. Ord.

He and his family were leaving everything behind for better opportunities. And now he is seeing some of those opportunities. He plays offensive guard on the Hollywood Hills High School football team and is being recruited by seven universities. Etienne is receiving strong interest from Temple University. I love football and I hope play in college and then in the National Football League, said Etienne. The Hollywood Hills football team recently defeated Piper but lost to Hallandale. Head Coach Al Lang is optimistic about the season. It takes hard work to be a good football players. It can lead to a college scholarship. I received a football scholarship to Liberty University, he said. Top players for Hollywood Hills include Edward Aldred and Winston Job, both receivers. Terence Williams is also a strong defensive back. Darius Greene is the quarterback. And there are many other players on the team who make a solid contribution. Artist Gines SerranPagan relocates to Hollywood Beach The City of Hollywood will soon be getting a world-class artist as one of its newest residents. Gines Serran-Pagan, a well-known artist who has established a reputation for his sculptures and paintings will move to Hollywood Beach and begin work on an art series. He expected to create an exhibition that will be displayed at the Hollywood Visual Arts Pavilion in March. He has a large and well known artistic sculpture in Mary Brickell Village in Miami. Hollywood has a fledgling art scene and I want to contribute to it. I want Hollywood to be place where artists will gather, said Serran-Pagan. He believes Hollywood is moving toward having a strong artistic community and believes it could a major center for the arts. I would like to develop artistic tourism in Hollywood, said Serran-Pagan. He would like to lead an effort to bring professional artists and intellectuals together in Hollywood. They would form a strong social community and would work together to develop their art and talent. The Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency recently hosted an event for Serran-Pagen at the Visual Arts Pavilion.

Each year, millions of Americans su er tooth loss primarily due to tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease), or injury. For decades, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. Luckily today, advances in dental technology present another option: dental implants. When a patient has removable dentures they can only chew about 50% of what they could chew with normal teeth, explains Dr. Hans Sperling of Dental Care Center of Hollywood, % of the patients with removable teeth say they eat better without the partials or dentures in their mouth. If you restore their mouth with dental implants and anchor those partials or dentures, that helps tremendously with the way that they are able to chew. ere are numerous advantages to replacing teeth with dental implants. Studies have shown that patients that are able to chew their food properly are able to better absorb vitamins and minerals from their food, resulting in a 30% decrease in medication needed to maintain health. e inability to chew properly has a direct correlation to chronic illnesses. Another key bene t to the use of dental implants is to prevent loss of bone. Once you lose function in some part of your body, it leads to atrophy, says Dr. Sperling, the same thing happens in the mouth, so as the bones start to atrophy, the appearance becomes di erent. To be able to restore that function with implants is a tremendous service for the patients. Not to mention the psychological health improvements of the patient by restoring proper function again. Implants also virtually eliminate the need to use any adhesives or creams to hold the dentures place, which are for the most part toxic. Dental implants can restore from one missing tooth up to a whole mouth full of teeth. With modern technology, dental implants are placed in an easy and predictable way with options available to suit the individuals needs such as conventional implants and miniature implants.

Conventional root form dental implants have been performed since the 197Os but it is until recently, due to the simplicity of the procedure and its predictability that it has become the standard of care in Dentistry. As more and more people are becoming aware of the advantages of dental implants, more people are getting them done, with more success stories. It is unfortunate that a lot of patients have unwarranted fears about dentistry. Dental implants can really improve the persons quality of life.

Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute at Memorial Regional Hospital made history this week by performing the first ever, adult heart transplant in Broward County. The hospital received UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing) approval to launch the adult heart transplant program earlier this year, becoming one of only two programs in South Florida. The skilled cardiac transplant team is led by Dr. Enrique Gongora, Medical Director of the Adult Heart Transplant and Mechanical Circulatory Support Program at the Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute and Dr. Ioana Dumitru, Medical Director of Adult Cardiac Transplant, Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathy. Both work with a high-caliber team of dedicated nurses, intensivists, perfusionists, and laboratory medicine experts, who were all on cue for the life-saving transplant. We are very excited for our first heart transplant patient, said Dr. Dumitru, a board-certified heart failure and transplant cardiologist. The 51-year-old patient who received the life-saving transplant had end-stage heart failure due to dilated cardiomyopathy. We had been following her since this spring. The team is preparing for the next adult heart transplants, given they currently have another five patients waiting for this miraculous gift of life. Performing our first adult heart transplant is an achievement that reflects the steadfast commitment of the Memorial Healthcare System to provide this community with world class cardiovascular care, said Dr. Gongora, a board certified cardiac surgeon. South Florida has historically been underserved for advanced heart failure care. Having a heart failure program, that is able to provide advanced heart failure care including heart transplantation and ventricular assist devices, is imperative to serve the growing number of patients suffering with advanced heart failure. The adult cardiac transplant team is part of the Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institutes TotalHeart care program. In August, Memorial Regional Hospital earned The Joint Commissions Gold Seal of Approval for its ventricular assist device (VAD) destination therapy program. Destination therapy VADs are implanted in patients with refractory heart failure who are not eligible for a heart transplant. VADs have been proven to dramatically improve the long term survival and the quality of life of end stage heart failure patients. The expert cardiac care at Memorial Healthcare System extends beyond Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood and covers the spectrum from pediatric to adult cardiac services. For example, the pediatric cardiac transplant team at Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital Heart Institute led by Dr. Frank Scholl, Chief, Pediatric Congenital Heart Surgery and Surgical Director, Pediatric Heart Transplant and Dr. Maryanne Chrisant, Medical Director of Pediatric Heart Transplant Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure Services has successfully performed 17 pediatric heart transplants since 2010. Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital has the only active pediatric heart transplant and mechanical circulatory support program in South Florida. In addition, cardiac experts at Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines perform diagnostic and therapeutic catheterization and emergency and elective angioplasties. With the outstanding resources of the programs dedicated to cardiac care at Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Hospital West and Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital, Memorial Healthcare System is poised to offer the community TotalHeart care from the youngest pediatric patients to adults, and throughout South Broward County and beyond.

The park will have dog play and training equipment, fresh water troughs for dogs to take a drink, new pedestrian walkways, theme park benches, waste bins, signage and security lighting. The planning and permitting of the estimated $375,000 project are now in progress. Construction is expected to begin in January 2015 with the new Hollywoof Dog Park grand opening scheduled for early May 2015. This will be a new dog park for Hollywood and add to the four dog parks in the City. Dog Beach of Hollywood, which is not considered a park, is another place for dogs to romp. This new dog park was one of the top five requested items by Hollywood residents. It has received preliminary Commission approval. This dog park will make Stan Goldman more desirable for residents to enjoy and recreate, said Chuck Ellis, director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts for Hollywood.

The 0.1863 millage rate represents a 53.4 percent decrease from last years rate of 0.4000. It will result in a levy of $8.2 million in ad valorem taxes, in comparison to the $16.3 million levied the previous year. After accounting for early payment discounts and a certain percentage of uncollectable taxes, the anticipated tax payments this year will provide the District enough revenue to cover only its governmental obligations, which include paying Broward Countys Medicaid Match program and community redevelopment agencies in several municipalities in south Broward County, as well as tax collector commissions and property appraiser fees. With no net tax revenue remaining from the newly adopted millage rate, the District will need to utilize operating income to cover all uncompensated care costs for the entire Memorial Healthcare System, including its six hospitals and its South Broward Community Health Services. In fiscal year 2015, uncompensated care is projected to exceed $1.0 billion. Memorial Healthcare System is the thirdlargest public healthcare system in the country. It is a national leader in quality care and patient satisfaction and has been ranked in Modern Healthcare magazines list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Its facilities include Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Regional Hospital South, Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital, Memorial Hospital West, Memorial Hospital Miramar, Memorial Hospital Pembroke and Memorial Manor nursing home.

Ashley Butler loves cheerleading and being a leader on the South Broward High School cheerleading team. I have been doing this for four years and it is a lot of fun, said Butler. To be successful in cheerleading, you have to be able to handle criticism and have good sportsmanship. You have to have good technique. It take a lot of dedication to be a good cheerleader. And it is a very rewarding activity. Butler considers the cheerleading team to be a like a large family. Kaylen McLean, also a senior on the South Broward cheerleading team said it takes a lot of heart to be a good cheerleader. You have to have pride in your school and you have to be dedicated to the sport of cheerleading. Nichole Masi, a junior said it takes a tremendous amount of dedication to be a good cheerleader. We work together. It is a lot of fun, she said. Stella Kilby loves being a part of the South Broward cheerleading team. We support school activities. It is fun to be a cheerleader, she said. Now, cheerleaders are cheering on the sidelines for football games. From October to the end of January, the South Broward Cheerleaders will be participating in competitive cheerleading. They will learn a a two and a half minute routine that includes stunts and tumbling and they will be judged on that routine. It takes a lot of spirit and dedication to be a cheerleader, said Caven. It also takes athletic ability. Cheerleading is one of the more popular activities at South Broward High School. Brandon Frantz and some of his classmates at McArthur High School were asked to complete a project that would benefit the school. They discussed some possible projects and soon realized that the schools band needed better instruments. So they worked together to apply for a grant from the Holland Opus Foundation to help the band purchase the new instruments. They were in the ninth grade at the time. We worked on the grant and sent it in. There were many other schools applying for the grant. We knew we were close to getting the grant when people from the Foundation contacted us. When we received the money, it was a good feeling, said Frantz. The band received a $35,000 grant from the Mr. Hollands Opus Foundation and was able to buy new instruments. Now a junior and a member of the baseball team, Frantz is hoping for a career in aviation. He is part of the Linking Education and Employment Outcomes at McArthur High School. There are about 400 McArthur High School students involved. The goal of LEEO is to connect what students are learning in high school with what they will need to know to be successful in the workforce. We are working to bridge the gap between school and the workforce, said William Wilson, who teaches Honors World History and Introduction to Information Technology. We will show how the material we are teaching in our courses can be applied to the business world. Sarah Beauchamp, who teaches Honors English looks for ways to show students how the business world works in her classroom. I teach soft skills. I have students work in groups on projects where they have to learn to work together to accomplish a goal, she said. LEEO is more of an overall philosophy toward educating students to be prepared for the business world. We want students to know what the business world is like. We bring in mentors to show students what will be expected of them in a business environment, said Wilson. Business executives have been invited to McArthur to critique the business plans of LEEO students. The executives will show the students problems with the business plans and how they can be improved. And LEEO students will receive actual skills. They can receive industry certifications showing they have mastered office computer technology. They can learn robotics, how to develop computer games, coding and other high technology skills that are in high demand. They can learn about computer aided design. Students can the basics of law enforcement or they can become skilled in various health care occupations. The can also learn about horticulture. Certifications in these areas can lead to high paying jobs. When a LEEO student graduates, they can have four to six industry certifications, said James Elder, association principal at McArthur. These certifications can become college credits. Some of the skills our students master can lead to jobs that pay as $40,000. Our students are ready for work or college. The LEEO program is an innovative program that has proven it can engage students in areas where they have strong interests. And it is helping them develop skills that are in demand.

SCHOOL EVENTS Kathy Oliva would like to see Hollywood Hills High School demolished and rebuilt. I used to tell my children that school is like a tool, you use it to help you get where you want to go in life. Now I believe the tool is broken. The school is in disrepair and we dont have a home field for varsity football games, said Oliva. She was among a group of parents, students and employees who spoke at a Conversation with the District event at Hollywood Hills High School. It was hosted by Broward Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie. Kathys son Kyle Oliva, a sophomore at Hollywood Hills spoke and said the bathrooms and football field need to be improved more books need to be available. Her other son, Paul Oliva, a recent graduate spoke on a need for more books and a cleaner building. Sharon Kieler, a mother with a daughter in the Hollywood Hills band said there is a need for more instruments and uniforms. I am a member of the band boosters and we have to struggle for support, she said. Other parents spoke on the need for more programs for special needs programs and more opportunities for high achieving students. Runcie is promoting an $800 million General Obligation Bond referendum that will appear on the November 4 ballot. During the meeting, Runcie spoke on the need to provide more computers to students. Right now the ration is one computer for five students. Because most tests and many assignments must be completed on computers, he wants to see this ratio reduced. Runcie is a proponent of the Digital Five program which allows elementary school students to have a personal computer. This program is in some schools and he wants it to be expanded. During meeting, Runcie said if the bond is approved, most of the money will be spent in Hollywood schools. Much of the money would go toward infrastructure improvements and more technology. And the District needs this money. Since 2008, funding for the Districts capital program has been reduced by nearly $2 billion. A data-driven needs assessment identified more than $3 billion in capital needs. The District has developed an acronym, SMART which stands for Safety, Music & Art, Athletics, Renovation and Technology. The bond money would go toward those areas. Also, a Bond Oversight Committee will be established to ensure that the SMART initiative is transparent and that the District honors its commitments to the community. The School District estimates that if the $800 bond is approved, average homeowners will be assessed on average about $50 more a year on their property taxes. Runcie said average is a home valued at about $225,000. Broward Public Schools Superintendent promotes $800 million bond on Nov. 4 ballot Sharon Kieler speaks to Robert Runcie during a Conversation with the District.

Broward County is the leading county in Florida for human trafficking. And Girl Rising South Florida is working to stop it. They are fighting against very savvy traffickers of sex workers. Often they will approach girls and teenagers, show some interest in them and eventually intimidate or even force them into prostitution. The traffickers will buy them something, take them to a nice restaurant and then bring them to parties where they are sold for sex. Sometimes the girls get involved because there is neglect in the home. There is no cookie cutter mold. Any number of things can get a girl involved, said Elizabeth Sanjuan, co-chair of Girl Rising South Florida. Sometimes the girls are locked in homes where they are abused and forced to engage in sexual acts with many different men. Or they may continue to live in the community, even go to school but are still involved with the person who is selling their sexual services. The national organization Girl Rising has created a moving entitled Girls Rising that is being shown around the world. The film is about nine girls who live in different countries who face the challenge of dealing with cultures that consider females to be second class citizens. They are discouraged from pursuing an education or leaving home until they get married. Sanjuan decided to develop the local organization to fight the problem of human trafficking locally. It is aligned with the national Girls Rising organization dedicated to stopping human trafficking and raising awareness that educating girls can transform societies. They are planning a Girl Rising event on October 25. The doors open at 2:30 and the movie starts at 3:00 at the Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center. There people will watch the Girls Rising movie premier and then enjoy a cocktail reception at Gallery 2014 in Hollywood. We cant sit back anymore and let our neighborhoods be plagued with the sadness caused by human trafficking. We believe if we change the life of just one girl, we change life for all girls, even those in our own neighborhoods, she said. There are 66 million girls around the world who dont have an opportunity to get an education. They are given away as child brides as young as seven or eight years of age, said Sanjuan. Girl is a worldwide campaign for girls education that began as a groundbreaking feature film. The growing movement uses the power of story-telling, partnership and media to unite individuals, companies, organizations, government leaders and foundations. They believe that providing education to a girl is the most powerful and effective way to keep girls safe and to fight global poverty. The money raised from the event will go toward Girl Rising, Girl Up, a United Nations foundation focused on uniting girls to change the world and Broward Human Trafficking Coalition, the lead agency in Broward County that is committed to fighting human trafficking. For more information on the event call Gallery 2014 at 954-505-3291 or visit http://www.girlrisingsouthflorida.com/. Hollywood leaders create a local Girl Rising movement HOLLYWOOD STARS Tiger Blossom hosts monthly workshops for cancer patients and survivors free of charge A new online boutique, Tiger Blossom, launched on May 1st, 2014 by Hollywood resident Natalie Hatjes to help local cancer patients and survivors regain self-confidence and improve body image post-treatment. The boutique carries jewelry, books, mastectomy wear, breast forms, head ware, compression garments, makeup, and other products to empower and educate women. One in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. One in seventy-two women develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime and in 2014, over 32,000 women will be diagnosed with melanoma. Many women struggle post-treatment with self-esteem and self-confidence. Tiger Blossom hopes to change the way women feel post-surgery by providing products that will help them feel feminine and attractive in their own skin. Body image is so important to a woman, says Hatjes, owner of Tiger Blossom. This boutique will be a place where a woman can feel empowered while shopping for these products. I want all cancer survivors and patients to know that there are thousands of other women going through what they are going through, and I want them to have a place where they feel supported. In addition, Tiger Blossom hosts monthly workshops for cancer patients and survivors free of charge. These uplifting seminars will increase body image and self-esteem while introducing participants to a healthier lifestyle. Participants will take part in various photo shoots, makeovers and make-up application classes, educational luncheons, workshops on nutrition and fitness, lymphedema seminars, and more.

COMMUNITY Beachtown Hop is back! Last years participants had so much fun going out on the town with friends while helping out a good cause that the 2nd Hop is scheduled for Saturday, November 1 from 6 11 p.m. Developed by a team from the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerces Leadership Hollywood Class XXXVIII, the group decided to keep the project going to help the seniors at the Joseph Meyerhoff Senior Center/Southeast Focal Point. At this premier event, a $20 donation allows adults of all ages to hop on and off a bus and visit restaurants and bars in downtown Hollywood and Hollywood beach. At each sponsoring venue the participants will be able to enjoy a complimentary drink or a taste of food. Participants have the opportunity to experience the vibrant night life of Downtown Hollywood as well as the historic Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, said Lenny Ortiz, Event Co-Chair and Owner of Leonardo Ortiz, P.A.. We expect to again attract visitors from all over Broward County. All proceeds from the event benefit Joseph Meyerhoff Senior Center/SE Focal Point, a 36-year old agency located in Hollywood that provides programs and social services to older adults. We were so inspired by the enthusiasm of the seniors that participate in the programs at the Meyerhoff Center that we wanted to help. While raising funds for a small, struggling non-profit in Hollywood, we are also helping bring people to local restaurants and bars, said Tina Buccellato, the Event Chair and the owner of Muzart Creative Arts Studio in Downtown Hollywood. We are creating awareness for the needs of seniors in the community, spotlighting local businesses and bridging the downtown and beach nightlife all at the same time. This is a trifecta of positive grassroots teamwork all wrapped up into one event. We are still hopeful that our example will not only rally support for Meyerhoff but inspire local initiatives to create positive changes. Tickets are available on EventBrite web site under: Beachtown Hop or by calling 954-966-9805 x117. You will also be able to purchase tickets the day of the event for $25 at two assigned locations and there will be a map and free transportation to take you from location to location. For more information join our FaceBook event at: The Hollywood Beachtown Hop or Tweet us at: www. twitter.com/hlwdhop Being in the marching band means long and hard practices after school. It means practicing marching in hot weather and working to make sure a show is perfect. But the reward is being able to perform a good show and making good friends. Brandon Ortiz plays the tuba in the Hollywood Hills band. He is band captain for the brass section. I love being in band and it is fun to perform at football games and contests. It is exciting and I always have fun. We help each other all the time, said Ortiz. Natasha Gurdyal, is one of the Hollywood Hills drum majors. She also plays percussion. When you are in band, you are in your own world. It is fun to make music. We are family. I love to perform at football games, she said. Jeffrey L. Lawson is the new Hollywood Hills band director and conductor. He came from a school in Miami-Dade. He loves the close atmosphere of the band. We are a family. The kids really care about each other. I am excited about this band and think we will do well this year. The band program is a tradition at Hollywood Hills, he said. The Hollywood Hills band will perform at local competitions this fall. It will perform at home football games, school pep rallies and in parades. In addition to the marching band, there is the wind ensemble for the more talented and experienced students and the symphonic band for those who are developing their skills. There is also a jazz orchestra. There are many opportunities for musicians at Hollywood Hills High School. And the band program offers a positive and friendly environment for students. Carol Sain has a heart for U.S. military personnel. A Hollywood resident, she is vice president of the Military Heroes Support Foundation. This organization sends Care packages to military people who are deployed abroad. Most of the Care packages go to military personnel who are serving in Afghanistan but the packages can be sent to other areas. An important priority is to send the Care packages to people who have no one to send them a package. This comes from my heart. I want to make sure that military people who are serving abroad receive a Care package, said Sain. When I asked to volunteer I was told there were no paid positons. I am not doing this for money. I want to help people who are serving in the military. Sain often packs Care packages at her home. I never want to let a hero stand alone. I also work to help families of military personnel who are stationed abroad. I have helped families with young children get diapers and clothing. I will buy items for the Care packages, said Sain. I recently sent 60 Care packages. And Sain plans to keep sending the packages. The Care packages include beef jerky, granola bars, nuts, dried fruit, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, socks, insect repellent and other items. She has also worked to organize parties for the families of military personnel stationed abroad. And Sain is active in helping military people who have recently returned home. Recently the Foundation held a social event at Bass Pro Shops/ Outdoor World. Ruben Ruiz, retired from the U.S. Marine Corps after a 13 year career. He reached the rank of Staff Sergeant. He sustained injuries while serving in Afghanistan. He appreciates the support he received from the Foundation and now is volunteering with the organization. I think is it important to send Care packages to people who are serving abroad. I know how much we appreciated the Care packages. Ruiz, who lives in Hollywood is now involved in helping military veterans make the transition from active duty military life to civilian life. He is president of operations for Heroes Entering Lifes Opportunities. He owns a tattoo business with two locations and is studying business at Nova Southeastern University. Ruiz plans to attend a fire academy. Ruiz wants to help military veterans transition from the highly regimented life that most of them know to civilian life. He believes that military veterans offer a strong work ethic and an eagerness to accomplish tasks regardless of the obstacles. Military veterans usually stand out because they work very hard, said Ruiz. He has found that sometimes this can actually work against military veterans because they can make civilians uneasy. Ruiz is eager to help military veterans find job and education opportunities. He would like to see more veterans resource centers. Sean Varriale, a U.S. Marine is hoping to become a police officer. He is volunteering with the Foundation and knows how much military personnel appreciate receiving Care packages.

MUNICIPAL NEWS Hollywood City Manager Cathy Swanson-Rivenbark is facing scrutiny regarding 35 temporary workers who were hired by the City over two years at a cost of around $935,000. The problem that members of the Commission have is that the request to hire the 35 people was never brought before the Commission for approval. Swanson-Rivenbark asked that the funding be approved retroactively the Commission would not agree to this. Instead the Commission requested an investigation by the Broward Inspector General and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The individuals were hired to work in dispatch, perform clerical work and to conduct background investigations. The expenditures in questions took place in fiscal years 2013 to 2014. Commissioner Peter Hernandez and Commissioner Traci Callari wanted Swanson-Rivenbark fired. The other commissioners wanted to see the results of an investigation. Commissioner Kevin Biederman did not vote to fire her but he does believe she should step down while the investigation is taking place. The city administration neglected to bring this before the commission. This is negligence and it should have come before the commission, said Biederman. We need to bring in an external auditor. A city ordinance was violated and we need an investigation to find out who broke that ordinance. Vice Mayor Patricia Asseff said she wanted to see more information on the matter before making a decision. Mayor Peter Bober said he believes the facts involved in this situation will come out. The entire problem is more likely an oversight. Over a short time, 97 police officers resigned or retired from the Hollywood Police Department. This meant that the City had to utilize a temporary agency more than expected. The City hired a company called Atrium doing business as Transhire to complete background investigations on 1,700 applicants for more than 80 police officer openings. Also, the City used Transhire to provide temporary personnel for dispatch services and to process a large amount of finger print evidence resulting from a high number of burglary cases. City of Hollywood policy requires that any expenditure more than $50,000 must come before the City for approval. The City hired Transhire for less than $50,000 for each assignment but the aggregate costs of the assignments increased over time. Swanson-Rivenbark realized there was a problem and asked the City Commission to approve the contracts over the past two years retroactively, according to Raelin Storey, spokesperson for the City of Hollywood. In a portion of a written statement from Swanson-Rivenbark to the mayor and commissioners, she wrote, From fiscal year 2011 through fiscal year 2013, the City lost 97 sworn officers either through retirement or resignation. To deal with the loss of nearly a third of the sworn officer force, the department downsized specialized units to keep patrol officers on the streets, authorized extensive overtime and ramped up officer recruitment to fill vacancies. The critical need for increased recruitment required additional background investigators to ensure all applicants met or exceeded the high standards required for employment as a Hollywood law enforcement officer, said Swanson-Rivenbark. The City has asked the Broward Inspector General to investigate this matter. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will probably not be involved because no criminal allegations have been made. The Hollywood City Commission passed the Fiscal Year 2015 budget and millage rate during a final reading on September 29. The millage rate remained the same at 7.4479. The budget is for $497.7 million and the General Fund is for $219.5 million. This budget represents a 10.8 percent increase over last years budget. Major expenditures include $2 million to demolish and rebuild fire station 45, $1.1 million for CCTVs and $500,000 for road resurfacing. The City will also spend $2,150,000 for 50 new police cars. One major concern raised during the final reading was the large amount of money being spent on pensions. Much of the Citys pension liability is unfunded. More and more of the Citys money is going toward pensions and this is squeezing the financial resources available to provide for current City needs. There will be an increase in the fire assessment fees for single family home residents from $189 to $209. Also, residents of condominiums will pay a $22 fire inspection fee. The City of Hollywood will add an additional 15 people including four police officers, two sergeants, three code officers and five customer service representatives. In earlier budget talks, Commissioner Biederman asked that the millage rate be lowered to $698 per $100,000 of assessed value of a home. This would have meant about $5.5 million less in the General Fund Budget and the reduction of 42 staff positions. Mayor Peter Bober was opposed to a budget decision that would mean the layoff of 42 people.

Barnick is a member of the Special Operations/ Traffic Homicide Unit. Its an honor to be recognized for the hard work the traffic unit does on a daily basis. This was a collective effort by members of the Hollywood Police Department, NICB and other agencies. It is gratifying to know that Hollywood Police Officers are making a difference in addressing the important issue of insurance fraud, said Barnick. The Hollywood Police Department, working in conjunction with the National Insurance Crime Bureau held and enhanced traffic enforcement operation throughout Hollywood on May 28. The objective was to combat the fraudulent use of insurance cards and people operating their vehicles without valid insurance. There were 15 officers; eight from West District and seven from East District, specifically to the operation. The officers conducted enhanced traffic safety enforcement with the added ability to ensure that the insurance cards that were presented to them by the violators were in fact valid. Also, 26 private insurance companies took part in the operation with more than 40 investigators participating. The operation provided an opportunity for networking between the Hollywood Police Department and the insurance investigators. There were 90 moving violations, 48 non-moving violations, 19 seat belt violations, 1 child restraint violations, 14 criminal citations/arrests, 36 traffic warnings and 8 vehicles towed. Since the operation, NCIB has received calls from other agencies across the county who are interested in replicating the success of the operation. Theyre looking to use this operation as a model for conducting similar operations in their communities. This was the first time a fraudulent/ uninsured traffic enforcement operation was held in Hollywood. Future enforcement operations are being considered. Uninsured motorists cost millions of dollars every year to the residents of South Florida. Insurance companies are forced to raise rates to off-set those costs associated with those who do not possess valid insurance. This operation, was designed not only to enhance traffic safety in the City of Hollywood, but to ensure all drivers who were stopped possessed legitimate, valid insurance. The 6-hour operation was a success for Hollywood. The partnership with the National Insurance Crime Bureau will have long lasting positive effects. N.I.C.B. recently shared a Claim Search computer program that will significantly help the Traffic Hit and Run Unit. The networking that occurred between the insurance company investigators and the members of our Traffic Homicide Unit has already paid dividends. Having a go to person a phone call away is an asset to Investigators and vice versa for the insurance investigators. They are assisting the Department with training in regards to staged accidents, another very prolific criminal enterprise occurring widely in the tri-county area. So, as successful as the operation was, the relationships created and the longterm partnership will far exceed the success of the operation. Hollywood residents can take comfort in knowing that the Police Department recognizes and has taken action in regards to an important issue in our community. Operations such as these are designed to identify and prosecute those who fail to obey the law, resulting in a safer community for everyone. The partnership with the N.I.C.B. is a force multiplier and as this relationship with N.I.C.B. continues to grow. As a result, Hollywood residents can expect to receive a higher level of service. Hollywood Police Sergeant James Barnick recognized for fighting staged accidents and other insurance fraud BY DAVID VOLZ CORRESPONDENT dvolz@hollywoodgazette.com HOLLYWOOD STARS Throughout the United States, people come together to remember and honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks. For people in the emergency services profession, 9/11 has special significance because so many firefighters, police officers and others died while rescuing others. The City of Hollywood honored those who gave their lives. /11 is a day of remembrance. Its a day we pay homage to those in public service who gave the ultimate sacrifice. They sacrificed so much for the safety of others. Its a day to remember that so few gave so much to so many, said Joel Medina, division chief, City of Hollywood Fire Rescue & Beach Safety. And 9/11 has special significance to firefighters. This is a day we use in remembrance of those who we have lost throughout the calendar year. Its a holy day for us where we give remembrance to colleagues and brothers who have left us for what we believe is a better place. May God have mercy on their souls, said Medina.
