The Pineapple Newspaper www.PineappleNewspaper.com Feb ruary 2014 1 DELRAY BEACH, FL For thousands of years, human beings have gathered together at festivals and fairs to celebrate religion, the harvest and the arts. Festivals and fairs give families, friends and communities an opportunity to gather and enjoy each others company and offered relief from the hardships of daily life and a chance to renew the human spirit. Delray Beach is blessed with a plethora of festivals and fairs but for many the height of the festival season is the Delray Beach Garlic Fest. Now in its fteenth year, The Garlic Fest is truly a unique Delray Beach tradition. It was started by a group of locals as a means to raise funds for local non-prot organizations dedicated to childrens arts and activities and it is still run by those local organizations today! This year it will surpass $500,000 in charitable contributions to the 16 organizations and the 500 www.PineappleNewspaper.com FEBRUAR Y 2014 Pineapplethe LOOKINSIDE COMMUNITY NEWS section 1 Library/School News . . . . . . . . . . .12 Events Calendar . . . . . . . . . . . 14 -15 NEW!

The $200 million redevelopment project will consist of shops, ofces, restaurants and apartments. The privately funded reconstruction has been a heavily debated subject among city ofcials and residents. The approval is a frustrating loss for many who fought to keep the project from becoming reality. Some impassioned citizens even commissioned their own studies of the area as leverage to have the project terminated. However, according to a legal memorandum stating the City Commissions elements of consideration for the approval or denial of the project, these studies could not legally be factors in the decision making process. While City Commissioner Adam Frankel thinks it was great that residents conducted these studies, he felt that it was beyond the scope of what I could look at. Legally, the commissioners were allowed to consider only matters of code and conduct as well as relevant evidentiary testimony. Mayor Cary Glickstein and Commissioner Shelly Petrolia, who voted against the construction, were fearful that the project would bombard Atlantic Avenue and the surrounding neighborhoods with trafc that would impede the residents safety and ability to get around town.

The Pineapple Newspaper www.PineappleNewspaper.com Feb ruary 2014 3 Organic. Cold Pressed. Pure Love. Juice & Smoothie Bar PROUDLY SERVING DELRAY BEACH COMMUNITY AS THE ONLY DEDICATED ORGANIC JUICE BAR community volunteers they represent. The Delray Beach Garlic Fest is a gathering that renews the communal spirit and it enriches the fabric of Delray Beach life. Renewal is the theme of the 15th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest. It reects the organizers commitment to bringing you something new and different each year in entertainment and to educate you in a fun way. A new presenting sponsor, Heneiken, joins the 15th edition of the Garlic Fest. A heartfelt thanks to Heineken for supporting the 15th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest and welcome to the Garlic Fest family. Back by popular demand is an old friend, Italian Rose, with their lineup of innovative garlic products. And from Naples, Florida, Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop is welcomed. Fans have called Jimmy Ps the best butcher shop in America! Over the past few years, The Garlic Fest has brought great music to South Florida! Seminal performances by Buddy Guy, G. Love & Special Sauce, The Wailers and Lifehouse in the last three years reect a commitment to great music. This year, Garlic Fest is proud to bring one of the most requested bands by Garlic Head fans on Friday, February 7, 2014, Collective Soul. With seven number one hits including Shine, The World I know and Precious Declaration, the band from Stockbridge, Georgia will rock this seaside town. Saturday, February 8 will feature a band that sold out three shows at Madison Square Garden and three shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 30 minutes. Yet, they have never played Florida! The band is called Dispatch and is guaranteed to be a concert to remember! To quote Brad Corrigan, one of Dispatchs three singers and multi-instrumentalists,Weve been called the biggest band nobodys ever heard of. People either know everything about us or they know nothing. There never seems to be any middle ground. Listen to The General or Bang Bang online and you will be hooked! The renewal theme continues at Garlic Chef Stadium with the introduction of our food waste and hunger awareness program, Waste to Taste. Nearly 72 billion pounds of food are wasted in the United States each year. Waste to Taste seeks to raise public awareness of the potential to utilize food products wisely at home and to help eradicate hunger in the United States in our lifetimes. Reigning Garlic Chef Champion, local Chef Bruce Feingold of Dadas, is sharpening his knives and kitchen skills to repeat his amazing culinary performance of last year. While there will be many returning artists and crafters coming back to Garlic Fest, over 30 new vendors will bring a variety of food products, arts and crafts. Old friends like Kenny The Tin Man Hoff and Mike Syphrits Crushable Hats return while new artist Haiyan Wang, brings his Pop Art along with Doug Thomas and his 1000 Oaks Barrel Co. So Garlic Heads get ready to regale, rejoice, refresh and renew at the 15th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest Presented by Heineken on February 7-9, 2014.

In a joint venture with The Edwards Companies, Atlantic Crossing is on track to explore the areas potential, bringing jobs, new tax revenues and an a new mixed-use destination to Downtown Delray; considerations the commissioners who voted in favor of the project could not say no to. Don DeVere, Vice President of The Edwards Companies, said, The vision from the start was to give Atlantic Crossing a distinct sense of place, authentic to the character of Delray and woven seamlessly into the existing downtown. Every aspect has been designed to complement the eclectic charm, walkability, and city life thats evolved naturally in Downtown Delray, while adding some new dimensions to the experience. The convenience for those who live and work at Atlantic Crossing will include numerous transportation options including bike and car shares and shuttles, DeVere noted. Within Atlantic Crossing there will be a group of 6 restaurants and about 15 specialty shops. Weve had very strong interest from prospective restaurant, retail and ofce tenants, based on Delrays appeal and the uniqueness of this particular location. Our goal is to nd those that are the very best t for Delray, DeVere said. The nal plan for Atlantic Crossing, DeVere said, is the result of adopting many community suggestions and trips back to the drawing board. We recognize that redeveloping this site is a once-in-ageneration opportunity. Its a responsibility we dont take lightly. Well continue to work hard to see that Atlantic Crossing is a welcome addition to Delray. Says Commissioner Frankel, I believe Atlantic Crossing, when complete, will be a jewel for the entire city of Delray Beach. The improvements that this group is bringing to such a critical area will be nothing less than world class. In the economic climate that were in, these individuals are willing to spend $200 million; this group cant be thanked enough for the employment opportunities and overall improvements theyre bringing to our town.

Hearts, Cupid, sweet nothings, and true love. Some may shrug it off as an unimportant holiday. But for the romantics out there, its a chance to shine! And if youre not so romantic, well, its a chance to really impress your signicant other by surprising them and doing something romantic. This is a holiday that allows you to step out of character, and be Romeo or Juliet. Just how do you do that? Well, here are some suggestions, sure to make your lovers heart utter. Wear your partners favorite scent! Find out her favorite cologne or his favorite perfume, and BAM! Favorite colors are a turn-on, too. Wear the color that your signicant other likes best on Valentines Day. Candle up! Thats right. We mean lots of candles. Lighting one candle at dinner isnt exactly a big romantic endeavor. But lling a room with candles will get their attention (and stimulate their senses). Add rose petals for an even more romantic touch. (Rose petals sprinkled on the bed, yes. Rose petals oating in the bath you drew for your matePriceless!) You know whats coming next, right? Of course. Food. Its true the way to a mans heart is often through his stomach. But women love delicious food, too. Cook, bake, or purchase their favorite dish or treat. Find where to get the best of that item (unless youre condent in your own culinary abilities). End with just a piece of good chocolate, strategically placed on a bed pillow or underneath his or her napkin. Watch a romantic movie. If one of you isnt up for that, read a sexy or love-lled poem out loud. The Internet is full of romantic and erotic poetry. Be bold = read one in the dark! This one is a winner, and we promise that if you do it, youll score big points. Ready? So you suggest a beach walk. But your signicant other waits in the car or on a bench while you take a call, or run to get something. Draw two hearts in the sand with your initials in them. Then walk them out to the drawing. Awwww. Now, lets talk about Delray Beach. You know, in America, we stretch our holidays out. So you dont have to go out on Feb. 14th. The 13th or 15th are good, too. Restaurants will be less crowded, and appreciate your business on an off night. Delray Beach can proudly boast of its wide array of great eateries. And there are many that we could rave about here. But this article is about romance, so well list the best local spots to get romantic with your boyfriend, girlfriend, lover or spouse. Sundy House is undoubtedly one of the most romantic spots in South Florida. Dining under the trees, out in the foliage, with the waterfalls beside youperfect. You dont have to have dinner. Do lunch. Or, if theyre not crowded, you can sit outside and just enjoy a drink and an appetizer, or just dessert. Or just stroll the gardens (take a romantic, slow walk around they dont mind!) and then just visit the bar. PS many people dont realize it, but this is also a hotel, so you could do a romantic stay! The food of loveItalian food. Rockys Italian Bistro is romantic because its small and quaint, the food is romantic (and delicious) and the setting is intimate. Boheme Bistro is also a romantic gem. Charming, small, and friendly. Sit inside or out. Josephs Wine Bar in Pineapple Grove also romantic. (Italian food). Indoor and outdoor seating. Sitting at a table for two and gazing at the ocean sounds romantic, doesnt it? Try this at 50 Ocean, above Bostons, and enjoy a ne bottle of wine while youre at it. Of course there are other romantic outings besides dinner at a restaurant. Delray has some ideal spots for stirring up love! Consider an overnight stay at Cranes Beach House. Secluded patios and tropical suites make this a cozy spot for an intimate weekend. What about a romantic cruise on the Intracoastal? Escape aboard the lovely Lady Atlantic, docked at Veterans Park. Speaking of that park, heres an inexpensive romantic idea. Slip a small bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers into a tote and stroll through the park down to the waterfront benches. Watch the boats go by, watch the moon rise, and reminisce about something you did together. Another idea: couples massages at one of our many local spas and salons. Last but not least, one of our greatest assets, and an icon of romance, is the sea. Surprise him or her with an impromptu beach picnic. Sunset, even better. Pop into the Wine Wave wine and spirits shop on East Atlantic Ave and pick up your favorite beverage and some cheese. Pull a blanket out of your car and walk down to the sand. Enjoy! Happy, Happy Valentines Day, one and all! Valentines Day for Singles If youre single, Valentines Day can be a holiday you simply dont care about. Maybe it even makes you a bit sad, as it is a couples day. Well, consider 2014 as the year you celebrate Valentines Day as a single person. YES, you CAN do that. And heres how! Go and get yourself your favorite dish, entre, snack or dessert. Indulge yourself. Curl up in your favorite spot at home and pull out a notepad and pen. Now, write down the things you love about yourself. Or, the things you love about your home, or Delray, your pet, or your best friend. Youll feel good just from making this list! Contemplate a way that you can spread love for Valentines. What can you do to show love to somebody you know, or complete strangers, thus sharing the emotion that IS Valentines Day Love. Then do it. Dont you feel great after a bubble bath? So take one. And as Calgon says let it take you away! Plan a trip! Yes, just the planning of a getaway, purchasing that airfare or selecting a hotel online, can release those good-mood chemicals! Make a homemade Valentine and give it to your favorite coworker or friend. Or maybe someone you know who isnt getting any Valentines. Heck, make a few and give them out to those you truly care about. Shock a family member and send them one! Make a Valentines Day Resolution! Hey, its a second chance if you messed up on your New Years one. ;) Go out to Happy Hour. Yes, Valentines Day means couples out to dinner. But lounges, sports bars, pubs and many places all have happy hour prices on food and drink, and happy hour is for everyone! So you CAN go out on Valentines Day evening. The bartenders at the non romantic places appreciate your business. Just enjoy yourself! You should never feel like its so obvious Im alone because Im out on Valentines by myself. Instead, think Im celebrating myself! Or, have a single friend join you. Get great photos taken of yourselfby a friend, a studio, or a photographer. Valentines is a great time to get your hair done, look your best, and get good pics taken. Post that hot new prole picture on Feb. 15th! You get the idea, single friends! Dont ever let Valentines Day get you down. Love, for all creatures great and small, and all mankind, is a beautiful thing, and always worth celebrating, wherever we are.

10 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper By David DiPino The Pineapple Contributing Writer As medical director of a pro tennis tournament, Dr. Jonathan Hersch expects to treat more than just the annoying tennis elbow. With tennis being played at a higher intensity, Dr. Hersch, an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at Tenet Florida Physician Services (TFPS) in Boca Raton, said he is seeing a lot of tennis players with overuse injuries. Dr. Hersch is on-staff at West Boca Medical Center and will begin his ninth year as medical director of The Delray Beach Open by The Venetian Las Vegas, February 14-23 at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center, 201 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach. With the worlds top-pro tennis players competing for over $1 million in prize money on the stadiums hard-court Plexiplave playing surface, Dr. Hersch anticipates he will be treating a wide array of sports injuries, but also some of the common ailments that follow pro tennis players around the globe. As medical director I work closely with the physiotherapist from the ATP staff on everything from ankle sprains, broken and dislocated ngers, dehydration, players coming down with the common cold or the u, said Dr. Hersch. I think we are seeing a lot of overuse injuries due to the higher intensity of the game. Pro tennis players bodies break down due to the rigors of being on a pro-tennis tour. Sometimes these players cant get enough rest and their bodies never get the chance to fully recover. Dr. Hersch works hard to keep those injuries and ailments from turning too serious, which could result in an early tournament exit, resulting in lost prize money or ATP ranking. We have had players too ill to continue. Players withdraw from a tournament due to injury or medical reasons, Dr. Hersch said. Dr. Hersch works closely with the pro players trainers, their physical therapists, and a physiotherapist on-staff with the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) on-site at the tournament. According to Delray Beach Open tournament chairman, Ivan Baron, a former ATP tennis player, a physician has to be on-site during tournament play. ATP rules state we must have a doctor onsite during all match play. Dr. Hersch works closely with the ATP physiotherapist and then if the player needs hospital care, tests, or medication, Dr. Hersch is our on-site medical director to provide the type of individual medical care each player needs, said Baron. Im on-site during the tournament and were in constant contact over walkie-talkie. When a player is injured or has a medical issue I come over and evaluate the player. Then, I give a short-term or long-term diagnosis. I work with the staff on-site and through the ATP have access to the players current online medical records that are constantly updated to make an evaluation for treatment and care, Dr. Hersch said. Dr. Hersch, a tennis acionado, began his career towards a medical directorship when he began medical consulting with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and the Chris Evert Tennis Academy. Dr. David Dines, the medical director for the ATP Tour is Dr. Herschs mentor. Dr. Hersch, a Parkland resident, began his medical directorship at a Sunrise Challenger ATP event over a decade ago. I have been practicing orthopaedics for over 12 years. With expertise in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery, I have been getting athletes (professional and amateur), and weekend warriors back in their game. Along with a team of highly skilled therapists in the community I am dedicated to restoring people back to their good health. I am a compassionate listener and will individualize treatments to each patient as they are all unique, said Dr. Hersch. Dr. Hersch is a board-certied orthopaedic surgeon and team physician for professional and junior athletes. He has been practicing sports medicine since 2000, and has a strong focus on helping athletes of all levels get back on track competing once again at their prior peak performance. Dr. Herschs Tenet Florida Physician Services practice is located at 6893 SW 18th St., Ste. F-101 in Boca Raton.

To be held again at the Boca Raton Marriott, located at 5150 Town Center Circle in Boca Raton, the weekend-long celebration is expected to generate continued interest and excitement, as attendance has grown each year. Sponsored by Caron Renaissance, the retreat offers Jews in recovery an opportunity to connect with other Jews in fellowship and camaraderie. It has been a sincere pleasure to continue our relationship with the Jewish Recovery Center as a sponsor of this event, said Sid Goodman, executive director for Caron Renaissance, sponsor for the third consecutive year. The Jewish community faces unique challenges in recovery, and we value spiritual healing as part of the overall recovery process. Retreats such as this one are such a critical component to continued sobriety by offering the Jewish community an opportunity to connect in an uplifting environment. An incredible lineup of world-renowned speakers and lecturers highlights a weekend lled with workshops, meditation groups, recovery meetings, family support groups, and Jewish Spirituality classes. Inspirational keynote speakers include Rabbi Abraham Twerski, MD, Rabbi Shais Taub, Rabbi Dov Greenberg, Rabbi Meir Kessler, Lewis J. Abrams, Arnie Wexler and Sheila Wexler. The Jewish Recovery Center was founded to address addiction treatment in the context of Judaism, said Rabbi Meir Kessler, founder and executive director of the Jewish Recovery Center. Jews in particular often struggle with the stigma long associated with substance abuse. Addiction is a disease and recovery is something that should be celebrated. We are thrilled to be able to offer a platform for continued encouragement and mutual support. Currently, we are nalizing plans for the third annual event, which has seen an increase in interest and attendance since its inception. Costs for the retreat weekend are $299 per person, which includes activities and all meals.

It is called The Pawsitive Reading Program and will feature Bootsie, a Therapy Dog trained and owned by Evan Kotler, a Childrens Department employee. This program will allow children who may need extra help in reading and interpersonal communication, to read to Bootsie in a comfortable, non-judgmental environment. Even though the children believe they are teaching the dog to read, in fact, with Bootsie as a comfortable, attentive audience, they are actually teaching themselves to read. A child who may be hesitant to read aloud to his peers will be less stressed when reading to a dog and the dog never judges the childs reading ability. For further information on this exciting new program please contact the Childrens Department at 561-266-0197. Registration is required and a sign-up sheet is located at the Childrens Desk at the Library.Delray Beach selected as 2013 Pacesetter: City recognized for community effort to promote early readingThe City of Delray Beach campaign to improve reading prociency among its youngest students has been recognized as a 2013 Community Pacesetter by the Campaign for Grade Level Reading, an honor that reects the energy, mobilization and creativity that the local community has brought to this important work. We are honored to receive a Pacesetter Award from the National Campaign for Grade Level Reading and be recognized for mobilizing our City in addressing 3rd grade reading prociency, said Mayor Cary Glickstein. Our City understands greater economic development requires world class schools and educational opportunities. Our Campaign for Grade Level Reading is part of a strategic foundation to implement successful educational initiatives for all of our schools. Delray Beach launched its Campaign for Grade Level Reading, making it one of the 140 communities working with the GLR Campaign, a nationwide movement of local leaders, states, nonprots, and foundations putting a stake in the ground on third-grade reading. The communities are adopting a collective impact strategy, engaging the full community around the goal of supporting low-income children from birth through third grade. Acknowledging that schools alone cannot address all the challenges that keep children from learning to read, Delray Beach created a mobilization team including many businesses and non-prots such as: the City of Delray Beach, Children Services Council, Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square, Delray Beach Public Library, AmTrust Bank, The School District of Palm Beach County, Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition, Prime Time Palm Beach County, Palm Beach County Human Services Division, and The Achievement Center for Children and Families. Collaboratively, this team helped Delray Beach accomplish an assortment of successes to ensure that children arrive at kindergarten ready to succeed, attend school regularly and keep learning through the summer months. Some highlights include: the infusion of summer academics in 5 summer camps that service low income children and distribution of books to over 500 children that attend Pine Grove and Orchard View Elementary Schools to stem summer learning loss. A citywide attendance program was launched this year under the direction of the Mayor to decrease the number of children that are chronically absent and tardy to school. The City is preparing more low-income children to be ready for kindergarten by expanding opportunities for children to attend Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten programs, quality child care facilities, and pre-natal programs. The City also recognizes that making inroads to improve third grade reading requires a communitywide effort and created Delray Reads Day, an annual event where 260 volunteers read to children in every public elementary classroom in the City. We are impressed and inspired by what Delray Beach has accomplished so far, said Ralph Smith, managing director of the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading and a senior vice president at the Annie E. Casey Foundation. With its commitment, resourcefulness and collaborative spirit, Delray Beach truly is setting the pace and providing a model for communities across the nation who are seeking to give more children from low-income families a chance at a brighter future. Delray Beach is proud to have been named one of the 32 nalists for the 2012 All-America City Award for their Campaign for Grade Level Reading Community Solutions Plan that has helped to mobilize the community and they have received both local, state and nationwide recognition for their efforts. About Delray Beachs Campaign for Grade Level Reading Part of a national call to action from the National Civic League in 2011, Delray Beachs Campaign for Grade Level Reading is a community-wide effort led by the City of Delray Beach to increase third-grade reading scores by 50 percent by the year 2020. This program resulted in the City being named as a nalist for the National Civic League (NCL) 2012 All-America City award, a prestigious award that the City has been honored to earn two previous times 1993 and 2001. Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach Countys Collegiate Challenge Over the last ten years, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County has hosted the Collegiate Challenge, a year-round alternative break program for thousands of high school and college students, as well as youth from church groups and other community organizations. This week, fteen Canadian college students from McGill and Concordia Universities, who are also members of Montrals Jack Reitman Hillel House, which advances awareness and understanding of Jewish culture and values, arrived in Florida to spend the week working side-by-side with future Habitat for Humanity homeowners building homes in Boynton Beach. Habitat, a nonprot, Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness, contacted Jenni Frumer and Maxine Wolgin of Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Service to coordinate local collaborations with Jewish organizations that might be willing to provide special meals and accommodations for these students. The response was overwhelming! The Chabad Student Center at Lynn University, BNai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton, The Hillel of Broward and Palm Beach, located at the Florida Atlantic University Campus in Boca Raton, The Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center and the Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Service have donated meals and housing facilities. Additionally, local families will provide kosher meals in their homes while other families will provide meals and snacks on the job site. But it is not all work for these generous young adults, as tickets for recreational activities were also donated. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with these students from Montral, as they help make a familys dream to own a safe affordable home come true. We are so grateful to our community partners and local families who have helped make this a very special trip for these Canadian students said Michael Campbell, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach Countys, Executive Director.Delray Beach Mayor Invites Students to Participate in If I Were Elected Mayor...

DELRAY BEACH, FL WellFest Delray, a second year event that will be held the weekend of March 8-9, 2014 at Delray Center for the Arts and Hyatt Place, has announced the funding of a scholarship program at Banyan Creek Elementary School to promote tness, good nutrition and self-esteem. Its a lesson Bob Lipp, WellFest creator, learned at a young age. When I was ten my family moved to a new neighborhood with new kids, many of whom had already formed friendships, states Lipp. That can be difcult for a young person, and it was for me. So when our gym teacher challenged the class to complete a series of tness tests, I saw it as a chance to connect with some of my classmates. As it turned out, it was also great for my selfesteem. The WellFest Delray Scholarship fund will select two students from the graduating class that according to school guidelines support a lifestyle that promotes staying t, eating responsibly and feeling positive about yourself. Commenting on the program, Principal William Fay Jr. said, Wellness is a concept that we incorporate into the curriculum at Banyan Creek Elementary School through educational activities and athletic programs.

We expect to see several more of our seniors receiving scholarships in the next few months. The Elev|8 athletes signing letters of commitment with NCAA Division 1 schools were baseball players Michael Brenner, a senior at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton, FL; and Justin Walker, a senior at Suncoast High School in Riviera Beach, FL. Both will attend St. Louis University. Basketball standout Derrick (D.J.) Clayton, a 6-foot5 shooting guard, who also signed a letter of commitment and is receiving a scholarship, will be playing at Western Kentucky University. DJ Clayton D.J. is a prime example of a kid that has unlimited potential, says Cody Toppert, director of basketball operations at the Elev|8 Sports Institute. Hes got tremendous athleticism and explosiveness going to the basket, and in addition to that, hes got a great ability to shoot the ball. Originally from California, Clayton transferred to ELEV|8 Sports Institute, a residential academic and sports training program, for his senior year to take advantage of the high level of training and competition. Michael Brenner Brenner, a centerelder, has been training with the topnotch coaches at Elev|8 for the past two years and has also continued to play with the South Florida Bandits travel team.

The event will take place from 8 am until 12 pm. Walk for Life (www.giftoife.org/ walkforlife) is $25 for advanced registration, and $30 the day of the event. Students can participate for just $10. This is a Certied 5K Race and runners and walkers at all levels are encouraged to participate in this family friendly event. A highly unique aspect of this event includes the introduction for the very rst time of a donor and a bone marrow transplant recipient. Over a year ago, the recipient, a 59 year old woman diagnosed with leukemia underwent a blood stem cell transplant She was matched with her donor a 21-year old male who she has never met. Once the donor was told by Gift of Life that he was a perfect match for the recipient, he immediately underwent the bone marrow donation process to help save her life. This is one of the most powerful moments some people may experience in their lifetime, said Marti Freund, Walk for Life Coordinator. This annual walk is a critical fundraising initiative for Gift of Life, but the best part is getting to witness such a beautifully emotional scene when the donor and the recipient meet face-to-face for the rst time. Walk for Life is the only 5k event in South Florida that is solely dedicated to raising awareness for bone marrow and blood stem cell transplants. Gift of Life uses funds raised at the Walk for Life to add new donors to the worldwide bone marrow registry. Registering just one volunteer donor through a simple swab process costs $60. Every year, 100 percent of all net proceeds raised at the Walk are used to add new donor to the worldwide bone marrow registry. The 2014 fundraising goal is $80,000. Sponsorships are also available. Males and females in good health between the ages of 18 and 60 are eligible to be screened and join the worldwide registry for patients in need. A simple swab from the inside of your cheek is all it takes to determine if you are a match. For more information on the event, sponsorships, or to register, please contact Marti Freund at 561.923.0993 or mfreund@ giftoife.org.Last year, Gift of Life Donor Kate met recipient Rebeca at 2013 Walk

20 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper I have searched my entire life to nd meaning in everything I do. From going to work, having a relationship, exercising, or even attempting to learn something. I ask myself the same question continuously... What is the point of life and does it matter how I live it? Should I strive for certain material things, enjoy a good party, or thrive on approval of others? Instead, should I be turning over all possessions, live a full holistic life and spend my days and nights meditating on OM. Everybody seems to have an opinion on how to live your life, from religion, parents, Hollywood, your husband or wife etc. All you can do is listen to the points of view and make your own decision based on the type of person you are. I recently came across a random article that shed some light on the subject. The article was interpreting The Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible. This is a well known book that is about a man who led a fruitful life, and in his nal days looked back with reection and narrates this particular book. He writes, I searched in my heart how to gratify my esh with wine, while guiding my heart with wisdom... I made my works great, I built myself houses... I became great and excelled. I looked on all the works that my hands had done and on the labor in which I had toiled, and indeed all was vanity and grasping for the wind. After reecting on his life he concluded, Eat your bread with joy and drink your wine with a merry heart... Let your garments always be white and let your head lack no oil... Live joyfully with the wife whom you love... Whatever your hand nds to do, do it with all your might, for there is no work or device or wisdom in the grave where you are going. So what I Interpreted from the author, is enjoy life! Drink up. Its ok to have plenty of fun. However, just dont make it all about having fun. Find the best life to live, work your hardest, live to your fullest, love till you burst, and be a good person. Then die knowing anything else wouldnt have really made a difference. Do not get hung up on being happy every moment of the day, it is part of the human experience to be angry, sad or depressed. Just try to relax into the emotions and take the good with the bad. In the end Its all vanity anyway. But its fun, and you get one chance, so you might as well start making the most of it right now, before its too late. Write me at: DavidJames.Yoga@gmail. com or call 561-929-8905THE MEANING OF LIFE ACCORDING TO ME OM WASNT BUILT IN A DAYby David James Boca Raton chiropractor announces expansion of athletic-focused sports chiropractic treatment servicesBOCA RATON, FL Sports Chiropractic and Natural Health Solutions now offers additional support for pro and amateur athletes. Dr. Todd Rodman of Sports Chiropractic and Natural Health Solutions recently announced an extension of chiropractic services for athletes in Boca Raton and surrounding cities, including Delray Beach. Biomechanically, chiropractic joint manipulation or mobilization restores normal motion and alignment to the joints assisting in restoring proper mechanics, thus allowing the body to perform at its best through proper alignment. At SCNHS, the musculoskeletal system is viewed as a collection of interrelated parts that work together to achieve a desired movement. In order to get the most effective therapy, treating the body in layers starting with the outermost soft tissue is important. Then working deeper toward the skeletal system is part of Dr. Rodmans treatment. If a muscle has developed scar tissue from overuse or trauma, it will be very tight and may be the reason why the vertebrae has gone out of its normal alignment. If only the chiropractic adjustment is used and the scar tissue is not addressed, then there may just be temporary relief. Combining chiropractic adjustments with highly-effective soft tissue therapies and rehabilitation exercises lead to the long-lasting permanent relief. Dont wait for the body to break down to x it, Dr. Rodman says. Too many people wait for a catastrophic event to take their health serious. We can help people x their minor health issues before they become major. For more information, contact Sports Chiropractic and Natural Health Solutions and make an appointment at (561) 3139117 or visit its website at http://scnhs.com.

22 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper BOCA RATON, FL The team from Dr. Richard Stallers Advanced Dentistry South Florida was glad to lend a helping hand to Boca Helping Hands. It was just before Thanksgiving and the team at Dr. Stallers ofce volunteered more than 40 hours to help those in need. Team members carried out groceries to recipients cars, packaged grocery bags, packed bags of meat and cheese; and others prepared food and handed out food to those in need. Boca Helping Hands does not turn away anyone that is looking for a warm meal. With only a few actual employees, they rely heavily on volunteers. Giving back to the community is one of our core values. We strongly believe in helping others and this is just one of the ways our team has shown this commitment. During the holidays especially, we all remember how grateful we are for what we have and it is important to help others who are less fortunate., said Dr. Richard Staller. The team at Advanced Dentistry South Florida was not the only volunteers at Boca Helping Hands. Volunteers from Boca West County Club, Henry Schein Dental Supply and other community volunteers helped serve hundreds of families. It is quite the operation over at Boca Helping Hands. In addition to the volunteer efforts, Dr. Stallers team also brought canned food and toothbrushes for children and adults. Boca Helping Hands is much more than just a soup kitchen. Volunteers at the food center serve hot meals six days a week to families and individuals that include the unemployed and underemployed, single parents, children and the elderly. In addition, they provide a pantry program that supplies grocery bags of food and staples for qualied people to help them meet their food needs. Job mentoring clients work with experienced human resource mentors to nd employment for clients who are in need of a job, discussing with them interview skills needed to secure employment. The Resource Center provides many resources to clients facing nancial difculties. The Esperanza Catering at Boca Helping Hands provides catering services to many organizations while providing employment opportunities for those looking for work in the service industry. Treasure Chest Early Learning CenterBoynton Beach Dr. Staller and his team were also proud to sponsor the Treasure Chest Early Learning Centers initiative to teach children ages 3-5 to learn about nutrition. The partnership with the Community Caring Center of Greater Boynton Beach allows a special teacher to come into the classroom with young children and teach them not only about colors and numbers, but about making healthy decisions. Many of the children who come to the Treasure Chest Early Learning Center do not receive the required nutrition and learning about the benets of fruits and vegetables help the children become more familiar and want healthier choices. In addition to sponsoring the program, two of Dr. Stallers team members went out to the center to help plant a garden. The children learned about seeds and how they grow into food that can be eaten. The children had placed a seed into a moist environment the week before and saw the bean begin to sprout! They planted the beans, along with other vegetables in the garden just outside of their classroom. Every day, they can see the progress and watch their plant grow into food which they will eat! Katie and Kelli also taught about dental health for children. The students counted their teeth and learned how to brush properly. Good home care along with better nutrition will help to reduce the number of dental emergencies for children. Each child left with a toothbrush, toothpaste and coloring pages. Advanced Dentistry lends a helping hand Katie Schanz, Stacie Baughman and Najea Moss packaging meat for grocery bags for those in need.

Maybe it is macaroni and cheese, slow-simmered tomato sauce, ice cream cones or potato pancakes. Eating comfort foods (every now and then) can be incredibly healing, even though your rational brain might not consider it highly nutritious. Food has the power to impact us on a level deeper than just our physical well-being. What we eat can reconnect us to precious memories, like childhood playtimes, rst dates, holidays, our grandmothers cooking or our country of ancestry. Our bodies remember foods from the past on an emotional and cellular level. Eating this food connects us to our roots and has youthening and nurturing effects that go far beyond the foods biochemical make-up. Acknowledging what different foods mean to us is an important part of cultivating a good relationship with food. This month when we celebrate lovers and relationships, its important to notice that we each have a relationship with foodand that this relationship is often far from loving. Many of us restrict food, attempting to control our weight. We often abuse food, substituting it for emotional wellbeing. Others ignore food, swallowing it whole before weve even tasted it. What would your life be like if you treated food and your body as you would treat your loved ones with gentleness, kindness, communication, honesty, respect and love? The next time you eat your soul food, do so with awareness and without guilt, and enjoy all the healing and nourishment it brings you. If you nd yourself going back to the soul food over and over, ask yourself what might be missing in your other relationships and what can be done to add it. Food Focus: Beans Beans, or legumes, including peas and lentils, are an excellent source of plant-based protein. Beans are found in most traditional cultures as a staple food, offering grounding and strengthening properties that enhance endurance. They offer a highly usable, highly absorbable source of calcium for the body. A very inexpensive source of high nutrition, beans can be rich, delicious and satisfying, Beans have a reputation for causing digestive distress, but this is usually because they have been undercooked or improperly prepared. To help reduce gas-forming properties, soak beans overnight prior to cooking, increase cooking time, add spices like bay leaf, oregano or cumin, or add kombu (a sea vegetable) when cooking. Recipe of the Month: Easy Beans and Greens Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Yield: 2-3 servings Ingredients: 1 can black beans (or pinto, red, kidney) 1 bunch collard greens (or kale, spinachyour choice) your favorite toppings, such as salsa, avocado or guacamole and sour cream Directions: 1. In a medium saucepan, heat drained beans. Add your favorite seasonings, if desired. 2. Fill a separate medium saucepan with 1-2 inches of water and bring to a boil. 3. Wash and chop greens (you can use the stems, too) and add to boiling water. 4. Cook for 2-3 minutes until greens are bright green and tender. Drain off water. 5. On a plate, arrange a portion of the greens, top with a portion of the beans and nish with toppings of your choice.Coach Kadel is a rm believer in that you are what you eat.

24 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper encourage our students to realize the value of a healthy lifestyle. Assistant Principal Alison LEtoile added, Its no secret that our children are the future and the importance of encouraging a strong mind and strong body can never be overlooked. The scholarship was particularly important for Sandra Tribioli, Director of Operations for WellFest and a mother of three school-aged children. Its great when an event like WellFest or a business or an individual can make such a positive impact on our children, and we are pleased that Principal Fay and Vice Principal LEtoile have been so gracious in accepting our offer. As of this writing, WellFest Delray 2014 has 16 Sponsors and over 80 Exhibitors and Speakers. Sponsors include: Acupuncture Associates, Celsius Energy Drink, Fiesta Pet Deli, Delray Library, Delray Medical Center, Gulfstream Business Bank, Hyatt Place Delray, Javita Coffee, Mint Fit 111, Naked Gourmet, Mind, Body and Spirit Caf, Smart Car Palm Beach, 21 Drops, Synergy Fitness Boca, Yoga Journey and Zaaz Studios. Speakers include noted area author Margaret Lembo, who has written several books for adults and one for children on Chakra and Crystals, and Dr. Brian Clement, of the famed Hippocrates Health Institute. Support and interest in this educational and inspirational event that features a Business Expo, Expert Speaker Sessions, Fitness/Well-being Center, WellPet area and Eat Well Food & Beverage Court grows every day. The support has been impressive, to say the least states Bob Lipp the event creator. In just our second year, weve seen businesspeople and organizations that support businesses, residents and visitors from Delray and surrounding areas get behind this important event. The event will take place inside and out at Delray Center for The Arts (off Swinton and Atlantic Avenues in downtown Delray) as well as the meeting rooms at Hyatt Place from 11AM 5PM, Saturday and Sunday. In addition, attendees will receive a PassPort to WellFest, a range of high-value coupons that will save hundreds of dollars at many Wellness-related businesses, plus a range of food and product samples, consultation with experts, even free massage stations throughout the event. Based on the funds collected for the event, Lipp and the WellFest team hope to add to the scholarship funds and bring additional schools into the program. Its amazing to think that the event debuted one year ago and now were looking at holding a signicantly larger event for the weekend of March 8-9, 2104, stated Bob Lipp. Frankly, Im not surprised at the enthusiasm, but delighted none-the-less that so many businesses, organizations and local residents have come forward to be a part of enhancing the WellFest Delray experience. Delray Beach was chosen as the perfect place to launch WellFest, based on the communitys feel good vibe and substantial health and tness-oriented business infrastructure. Bob and his team hope to build a WellFest-oriented lifestyle into the Delray brand, something that he believes can be accomplished in-part with WellFest Delray. A wellness-branded Delray can help to attract like-minded businesses to our area for a potential headquarters or regional ofce, adds Bob. Of course well also welcome them here to hold their meetings or to sponsor events like WellFest. Bob is not alone in that belief and has enlisted the services and expertise of former mayor Jeff Perlman, who is consulting on WellFest Delray. WellFest Delray 2014 will be the next big step in what we believe will become a yearly tradition in Delray, added Perlman. With its year round temperatures that favor an active lifestyle, Delray has always attracted sports, exercise and tness enthusiasts. Plus many of our restaurateurs and chefs are promoting healthier eating, which is why the new Eat Well Food & Beverage Court at WellFest Delray is a win-win.

WELLFEST continued from page 17 Love Your Self This Valentines DayBy Laura Norman Special to The PineappleIn most cultures around the world today, being labeled a selsh person is something to be avoided at all costs. Yet, if you look closely, most of us spend our entire lives selshly searching everywhere for ways to feel fullled. We will go to almost any lengths to nd something or someone that makes us feel good about ourselves. And what do we do when we nally get itthe job, relationship, house, car, politician or gadget we were sure would make us happy? We soon begin to feel like were missing something again, so we question what we have, and the vicious cycle continues: Oh, this job wasnt what I expected it to be. He/she isnt the same as when we met. I cant wait until this years gadget comes out! Whats going on here? We have been trained from birth to look outside ourselves to nd happiness and contentment. The same is true for our parents and their parents before them. We constantly look to others people and possessions to make us feel good about ourselves. As long as people behave in a way that is acceptable to us, that makes us feel safe or good, all seems to be well. The minute their behavior or beliefs step outside our comfort zone, we criticize, ostracize and, ultimately, dehumanize them to coerce them to behave in a way that makes us feel good. Are we having fun yet? Since we cannot always control external circumstances, events or the billions of people supposedly capable of making us either happy or unhappy by their behavior, what is there left for us to do? We can focus on Self-fullness. The healthiest, happiest, most generous people know the secret to true joy and happiness. They understand that only by being full of Self rst can we create miracles for ourselves and others! Consider airline pre-ight safety instructions. Remember how the ight attendant always tells you that should the plane experience turbulence or loss of cabin pressure, your oxygen masks will be deployed. Please put your own mask on rst, and only then place the mask on your child. Why are we rightly told to ignore others? Because we are in no position to help anyone else until we have enough oxygen ourselves. Similarly, unless we have enough Self love, compassion, Source within us, we have nothing to give others. While we are all connected to Source, we forget our connection and start to believe we are on our own. We then perpetuate the cycle of looking to others to try to ll that void. We can only offer the real gifts of peace, love, joy and clarity to our children, spouses, colleagues, and everyone else whose lives we touch by embodying those qualities. As Gandhi is so often quoted, Be the change you seek in the world. Our real gift is simply being full of Self. We will then naturally become a shining example for everyone in our lives. Meditation, Yoga, Qigong and Reexology are some of the powerful ways available to help our transition to Self-fullness. Removing stress and clearing the mind of negative thoughts and feelings are critical steps to remembering and reconnecting with who we really are. Reexology works by relieving stress, promoting relaxation and creating a profound sense of inner peace, all the way to the cellular level. Using reexology within a broader, holistic context helps awaken the knowingness of who we really are. By calming your central nervous system, changing habits of thought and clearing the resistance that stand between where you are now and a true sense of fulllment, Holistic reexology helps you open the door to allow your own Selffullness. Remember the Self-full person you are capable of being. The person who no longer needs to look outside themselves for fulllment. The person who is keenly aware of the innite powers and resources of this glorious universe. The person who knows intuitively how to tap into those powers and resources for themselves and others. Celebrate Valentines Day this year by taking steps to love and honor your Self. Create new possibilities and live the fullled life you deserve.Laura Norman, M.S., LMT, world-renowned Holistic Reexologist, educator and author of the best-selling book, Feet First: A Guide to Foot Reexology, offers private Reexology and Life Wellness Coaching sessions in Delray Beach and Holistic Reexology Training Programs in Boynton Beach starting February 9th.

Come Join Us! Be Proactive Not Reactive About Your Health! proactivehealthscreening.com Go from an attraction to a lifelong commitment of true love!By Jianny Adamo Special to The PineappleEveryone wants love but not everyone nds it. Interestingly enough, when you love or are in love, you know exactly what it is. Love paints our view of the world and bestows purpose and meaning to life. Somehow, when love is absent or lost, amnesia sets in. Its hard to dene love; you ask if its even real. You are either on a journey toward love or on a journey to defy it. Love is uid, offering different avors and depths. In the attraction phase, being in love is an emotion producing, strong affection and obsession for another. Its driven by chemistry racing around your brain and body, an experience many poets and artists have written about. Its euphoric and cannot be understood unless you have experienced it yourself. This experience is a hallmark of new love, marked with preoccupation with your beloved and making the world around you disappear. It transcends time and commands your attention. A threehour conversation with your beloved can seem like a blink of an eye when smitten with love. Existence quickly moves from okay to I can climb Mount Everest, simply because of your experience with love. But not every relationship experiences such a high, nor does experiencing this bliss determine the longevity of your relationship. Dopamine, the pleasure chemical in your brain, norepinephrine, which produces the racing heart and excitement, and endorphins--the bodys natural painkillers-act like magnets bringing lovers together in ecstasy. This chemical reaction produces a dependency on your love object. For some, the need for this natural high has tripped them up to becoming addicted to love, cycling through relationships looking for the next rush. On average, this phase lasts 18 to 36 months and is natures way of attracting us into venturing into real love. Consider the attraction phase the prelude. Many relationships naturally phase out here when there isnt enough interest, commonalities or shared values and goals. For those that continue, the next phase is attachment. The attachment phase centers on commitment. Youve moved through the fantasy and are ready to embrace real love. Its as if in the attraction phase, all the possibilities of what this love can bring ashes before your eyes--and in the attachment phase you get to build ittogether. Playing a key role in this stage are oxytocin, vasopressin and endorphins, which are released when having sex and when engaging in things that makes you feel close to your partner. They produce a general sense of well-being, including feeling soothed, peaceful and secure, leading to happy feelings and deeper attachment. The commitment or attachment needs to be strong, as problems and distractions will arise testing your patience, your love and at times, push you over the edge. Attachment and commitment are central in long-term relationships. Marriage cannot happen without these key ingredients. The pathways to attachment and commitment are developed initially in infancy with your primary caregiver. This is part of your emotional and social development and is necessary for your survival. As an infant, you attached to adults who were sensitive, responsive and consistent in their care for you. These caregivers or attachment gures became a source of security and based on their responses, you developed patterns of attachment. These primary relationships became your relationship blueprint guiding your perceptions, emotions, beliefs and expectations for future romantic relationships. This is why when you fall in love it feels like you have always known him or her...your other half. Theres a lot of work that goes on in this phase. You are building a home and a life together; youre establishing careers, and perhaps raising a family. At times, your different styles and personalities harmonize and at other times, clash. Whats important here is to be sensitive, responsive and consistent--be present and available to your partner and your relationship. Checking out mentally or emotionally can run the peril of riding a run-away train with no one at the helm. It takes conscious effort to maintain attitudes that ensure the success of your relationship. A perspective of a glass half full, works better than the glass half empty to keep you together. Its important you see the best in your mate; acknowledge and appreciate each other. The actions and the choices you make--even when you dont feel in love and at times may even question it-determine whether or not you sustain a satisfying relationship and keep love alive. In real love, your attitudes matter. Your actions matter. The choices you make matter. Being responsible matters. Having fun matters. Pleasure matters. Real love brings two strangers together for the dance of a lifetime. It gives you the opportunity to co-create the lives you desire and leads to deep personal growth and fulllment like no other relationship offers. In real love, each partner takes great care to satisfy the others needs and regards the other as his or her most valued prize; held in high esteem and with gratitude. There is a great sense of security and freedom in this form of love which comes with time. Statistically, lasting love has a greater chance in marriage than in cohabitation. Perhaps, its for the single notion of commitment. Real love guides us to live in peace and with vitality. It teaches us to have courage to face and rise above the challenges life brings.

Studies show that 80% of players, at some point in their golf playing years, will experience back pain or suffer from some type of joint pain which will not only make their score suffer but will take all the enjoyment out of the game. With season in full swing, more and more people will be traveling to Florida to get away from the cold weather, the ice and snow and from being stuck indoors for days at a time. Players will be dusting off their golf clubs and making tee times. That being said, golf is not only a tough sport mentally, but physically as well. Regular chiropractic care has not only proven to keep your spine aligned but research shows it will also boost your golf performance. Lets start with proper posture and spinal alignment. Proper posture is extremely important on and off the golf course. Performing activates with the proper posture is not only essential for your health but for avoiding injuries as well. If your spine is out of alignment you can bet your golf game is out of alignment as well. Correct posture and spinal alignment will give you the biomechanical advantage over other players. Improving posture will advance your ability to strike the ball with more consistency by improving your range of motion, balance and stability. To swing a golf club our bodies need to perform in a synchronized fashion. A golf swing affects the spine with loading forces that are very rapid, intense and complex. The L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs are subject to the most compression in the spine, research shows that the amount of this load can reach up to eight times our body weight. For some of us, thats equivalent to 15002000 lbs with each swing, with the average golfer making about 35-45 swings, that is 70,000 lbs placed on your lower discs during each round! Very often this repetitive motion can lead to acute injuries such as bulging discs in the neck and low back, which if left untreated, can result in a very debilitating situation. When injured, the disc can place pressure on the spinal cord and/or spinal nerves causing pain, numbness and even weakness of the arms and legs making it very difcult to function day to day. Low back injuries are generally the biggest complaint amongst golfers. Injuries of the elbows, wrists & hands, shoulders and knees can happen just as often. When golfers experience any type of injuries, conservative treatment options should be their rst choice. There are a number of advanced treatments for golfers, including spinal adjustments, muscle release technique, cold laser therapy, non-surgical spinal decompression, rehabilitation exercises, anti-inammatory nutrition and advanced neurological therapies which can drastically improve balance and stability. Spinal adjustments are known to restore spinal mobility and reduce pain. A proper rehabilitation program should be created, not only for therapeutic reasons, but for injury preventative as well. Class IV cold laser therapy to the involved area will enhance the metabolism of local cells, increasing blood ow, reducing pain and swelling thus speeding up the healing time. Spinal decompression helps to reduce pressure within the discs to relocate it in a non-offending position. Advanced neurological rehabilitation procedures can improve the players balance, rhythm and tempo, which in turn will improve their golf swing. As we grow older, keeping an active lifestyle is more important than ever and you dont have to be a pro golfer to benet from chiropractic care.

The Pineapple Newspaper www.PineappleNewspaper.com Feb ruary 2014 27 DELRAY BEACH, FL Less than a year after SloBody conditioning infused yoga rst opened its doors in Delray Beach, the personalized and high-caliber tutelage of founders Kirk Slobody and Janine Tiede, continues to inuence and change the way South Floridians are seeing both yoga and tness today. SloBody which Strengthens, Lengthens, and Opens the Body kicked off 2014 with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring the Greater Delray Chamber of Commerce. The Grand Welcoming event at SloBodys studio at 209 NE 5th Terrace in Delray Beach, featured a ribbon cutting with the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce as well as a tour and history of SloBodys facility, a meet-and-greet with the founders as well as students, photos from classes and events over the past year, rafes courtesy of numerous local Delray Beach establishments, and delicious and healthy refreshments and food. Our welcome to the Delray Beach community over this past year has been truly wonderful, said co-founder Tiede. Now its our turn to thank the local businesses that have supported us, the community that has adopted us, and our students who have dedicated themselves to the practice of SloBody. SloBody is also using the Grand Welcoming party as an opportunity to introduce a variety of new offerings including its new TheraStrech (Therapeutic Stretch) class and new Ramp Up program. Designed to get folks the best results possible out of their group training program in the shortest amount of time, TheraStretch is geared to those with limited mobility, new to yoga and stretching, and/or deconditioned. The Ramp Up program is for all new SloBody students and consists of a consultation and three 30min private training sessions. Former NCAA Division I athletes, Certied Personal Trainers, Yoga Instructors and Masters at breaking movement down, Kirk Slobody and Janine Tiede, created SloBody. By stripping Yoga to the essence of what makes it great exercise and blending it with old school conditioning (squats, lunges, core work, push-ups) they created a unique workout that builds: strength, awareness, balance, exibility, and mobility. Learn more at www.SloBody.com. My personal trainer once bit meBy Dr. Raul Rodriguez Special to The PineappleOK not really, but she did get me in really good shape and made me a believer in personal training. Professionally facilitated tness involves working with tness and nutrition specialists to achieve professional grade results. Professional grade refers to achieving results and performance levels that are usually seen in elite level athletes. The common misconception is that you need to be an aspiring Olympian to justify taking your tness this seriously. If your health and global state of wellness are important to you, then that is justication enough. I had always taken my tness seriously, but had also always thought that personal trainers and nutritionists were only for professional athletes and celebrities. I had worked out on my own since high school, picking up basic exercises from other people in the gym and a few books. I worked hard at it and enjoyed pretty good results. When I was in my 20s it all came easy and I really thought I knew it all. After medical school I was convinced that I knew more than any trainer or nutritionist could not imagine ever wanting or needing one. Reality set in after reaching my later 30s. When the effects of age started to work against my human physiology, I nally accepted that maybe, just maybe, some trainer somewhere would have something to offer me. If you are in your 30s or older, then you know exactly what I mean. Our ability to train, heal and recover is greatly affected by age. Exercise practices that worked in our 20s can outright injure us when we are older. I found this out the hard way, even though I had never let up on my training and tried hard to maintain tness since the age of 13. I started to experience injuries and they seemed to take so long to heal. If I stubbornly tried to do things the old way, I would injure myself even more. Soon the time lost to injury caught up to me and I started to lose tness because I could not train often enough. I nally broke down and got my rst personal trainer. Finding the right personal trainer is very important. I went through 3 of them before I found the right one. The rst one was just not competent and simply misrepresented his degree of expertise. The second one pushed me way too hard, which led to overtraining and even more injuries than before. The third one could have been a tness model but was also not that effective at helping me get results for myself. The right trainer for me, which is the one I still train with to this day, was the one that was able to get the injuries to stop and the results to return. The results that I achieved with my trainer were results that I had never achieved before, even in my 20s. It was then that I realized that there was much that I did not know, even being a physician. I also came to understand the other benets of working out under the guidance of a trainer. An extra set of attentive eyes helps watch and correct your form. Advanced knowledge of exercises and growing familiarity with your abilities facilitates appropriate weight and repetition selections. Careful observation helps determine when to push harder as well as when to pull back. The best trainer is the one that knows you and the science of tness training well enough to push you to your very limit, but never past it to the point where you actually injure yourself. The best trainer also mixes it up and keeps it interesting. Monotony is one of the worst things that could happen your training regimen. The personal relationship with your trainer also helps boost your motivation and adds accountability to keep you from slacking off. The overall quality, efciency and consistency of trainer directed workouts are so much greater than most self-led workouts. Careful study and experimentation have led to the development of safer and more efcient training regimens that are custom tailored to meet each individuals needs. Functional training exercises focus on training bodily movements rather than isolated muscles. Agility and balance exercises can appear difcult but are actually very fun and add a fresh challenge to any workout. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of interval training that alternates intense anaerobic efforts with recovery periods to create a quality cardiovascular workout. Body sculpting involves using specic exercises to signicantly change body proportions to that which is desired. These popular training forms deliver prominent and consistent gains with fewer injury setbacks. Having dietary needs addressed professionally with a licensed nutritionist really makes the difference as far as losing the most body fat and improving energy levels. Once you reach a certain level of tness, you cannot imagine ever going back to the way it was before. My trainer made the biggest difference in me getting there and I have no intention of ever going back. If I can do it with the appropriate professional help, how could you not possibly be able to?Dr. Rodriguez is the founder of the Delray Center for Healing and Performance Fitness & Nutrition.

28 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper fashion & beauty By Dianne E. Adams Special to The Pineapple Its February and things are dull, the holidays are over and summer seems like an eternity away. There is a way to break up the doldrums of winter and that is to be sure you have the shiniest hair in town. We all know that shiny hair looks more beautiful and when our hair looks beautiful we feel better and as far as I am concerned, thats the name of the game. There are lots of ways to get and keep hair shiny, some are very inexpensive and you can do yourself, some cost a bit more and have to be done in the salon. It doesnt matter what you do, what does matter is that you do it! Some home remedy tips that are inexpensive and easy. 1 Mayonnaise, dampen hair with warm water, but not dripping, apply as much mayo as you need to completely coat your hair and saturate your strands, wrap your head in plastic wrap or use a shower cap. (the plastic will seal in the warmth from your body to help open the cuticle of your hair so the mayonnaise can penetrate better) leave on 20 to 30 minutes. Shampoo with a moisturizing shampoo, probably more than once, style as usual, you will see an immediate boost! 2. Apple Cider Vinegar, shampoo your hair with your favorite high quality shampoo, mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water, put in a spray bottle and douse your clean hair with the mixture, leave on for 5 minutes rinse well. You will not even need conditioner, dry and style as usual, and you will see a glow you didnt have 10 minutes before! 3. Yogurt, brush dry hair well to remove any knots, take a container of plain yogurt and spread it all over your tresses, tie it up and wrap in plastic or use a shower cap, leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes then shampoo, condition and style as usual and you will see shine, bounce and resilience that was not there before! Here are some things that we can do for you at the salon 1. Gloss, it can be applied with a single process (roots) or on its own, gloss can be clear or it can have color in it, a gloss usually lasts about 4 weeks and will add shine and also helps close down the cuticle which will make your hair look shiny and healthy. It is my opinion that a single process (roots) that does not include a gloss is an incomplete color service. I feel that if your base has been colored you must gloss the entire head to make everything even, shiny and beautiful. 2. Keratin, this is a more costly option but a Keratin will boost elasticity, reduce frizz, close down the cuticle and add a layer of Keratin (your hair is made of Keratin) in turn your hair will be healthier, and less frizzy which in turn will make it shinier. 3. Shine products, hair oil & shine spray are all great options, they are temporary but they work wonders, many of these products also keep humidity out and keep moisture in so invest in a product that your stylist recommends and add it to your beauty regimen. 4. Flat iron, its just a fact that straighter hair will reect light better than curly hair, so invest in a good at iron, get thermal protector and go for it, once you have done it a few times it will get easier (I promise) after you have achieve the desired effect use your hair oil or shine spray to add the glossy nishing touch. Remember shiny hair is beautiful so try a few of these tips and shine on! Dianne E. Adams is owner-stylist of Studio Seven Hair in Pineapple Grove. ( V isit www.StudioSevenHairDelray.com For every adult or child who visits any Delray Beach Hair Cuttery salon to purchase a haircut on February 4-5, a free haircut certicate will be donated to a homeless person right in their community through local organizations such as the United Way and Salvation Army.

30 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper A YOLO MOMENT?Question Hey Jack, Alright... My problem is short and sweet. Ive been dating this guy for a little over a month, hes cool and we have a lot of fun together. Is he my soul mate? Probably not. But he has opened my eyes to a... well say a new side of myself. Things are great and weve had a lot of fun, but now he wants to go from Shades of Gray to Eyes Wide Shut. Are you following me? Now, I know better than to do something I dont want to do, or something I am uncomfortable with, but I am completely torn. It sounds intriguing and adventurous, but on the other hand who does he think he is?!?! Am I being a naive for letting him manipulate me into doing this? I have been racking my brain with this and I cant tell my friends about it. So should I (for the lack of a better term) YOLO it and just have a good time? Or should I preserve the little bit of innocence I have left and not open pandoras box?Answer I dont think I can answer your direct should I do it, question any better than you can. It comes down to, which would you regret more: going through with it, or not. Its good to be in a relationship with a partner that encourages you to expand your horizons and interests, so long as youre happy and comfortable with it, but its up to you to determine if these new horizons and interests are directions you want to go. Getting involved with a guy that only likes to watch and play sports is a terrible idea if you arent interested in sports. But it seems that you do like sports, youre just not sure how much. What I nd interesting is the interplay of this guy and your new relationship. You say he isnt your soul mate, and chances are youre right, but it seems that you do have some sort of feelings for him beyond the physical. If he was a sexy mannequin and this was strictly physical, you probably wouldnt have written in. Simply, either youd want to go there with him, or not. Your pleasant description of him and that you were a little offended by his ask seems to indicate that this might be more than just a physical thing, good long term prospects or not. You should sort out your issues with him before pushing the envelope on something you arent sure about. Whats the rush? This opportunity is not going anywhere. Im not a prude, but in one month he has changed a very personal part of your life and asked you to participate in an adventure youre not sure youre ready for. This could be his manipulative MO: meet new woman, invite her along for fun, nd next woman for party, repeat. He also could be very interested in you and wants to share this part of himself because this is his genuine article. You might have no real interest in him, but hes fun and cool and youd like to try this...and on and on. You might be ne with all this unknown, but until you can get a clearer view of, primarily what you want, and secondarily, what he wants, you should maybe hold off so your decision is as informed as possible. Also, talk to him about it. If you tell him you want to think about it, and he pressures you, then you know his intentions. With that knowledge you can make a clearer decision. If you are gung-ho regardless of what he says, and it sounds awesome, by all means dive in. Most importantly, if you do actually like him, dont do something to simply appease him, that will likely result in regret. Only do (or not do) this for you. Remember, you cant take back whats been done, but you can always participate when youre appropriately revved up and ready. Dear Delray, I am a one question a month kind of guy, so please send your trials and tribulations to andthenjackhappened@gmail.com and we can have some fun. resort wear stores, strutting the sidewalks in the center of Downtown Delray Beach on a bustling Saturday night, to promote the beginning of Fabulous Fashion Week in 2014!

By Jeremy Ofce Special to The PineappleAs the year comes to an end, we reect on where weve been, where we are, and where we may be going. Since we take a top-down macro approach to investing, we attempt to make educated decisions on what could be the dominant themes for 2014. Because we do not have a crystal ball, we try to be broad in our overall expectations and base our assumptions on historical statistics, fundamental analysis of economics and personal experience. After many hours of research and debate among our team, we have come up with the following themes for 2014 and the possible implications associated with them. Going through this exercise reminded me of one of my favorite books, Oh, The Places Youll Go by Dr. Seuss. This book has been a backdrop throughout my life, so I thought it would be tting to explore the places we think the markets will take us in 2014. As the great Dr. Seuss said, Congratulations! Today is your day. Youre off to Great Places! Youre off and away! As we saw in May 2013, the mere hint of tapering for the rst time pushed rates higher from a low of around 1.63% to above 2%. To much of everyones surprise, in December we actually achieved $10 billion of monthly reduced purchases. The FOMC also anticipates that it likely will be appropriate to maintain the current target range for the federal funds rate well past the time that the unemployment rate declines below 6.5%, especially if projected ination continues to run below the 2% goal. With Janet Yellen at the helm, we expect an accommodative monetary policy to continue, with rates drifting higher as additional tapering becomes imminent. Tapering will not only test the resiliency of the markets, but will also indicate that in the eyes of the Fed, the economy has substantially improvedan encouraging nod that investors might be looking for to regain condence. In late 2012 and early 2013, Japan entered into uncharted territory and took a page out of the Feds book by adopting an extremely accommodative monetary policy to overcome its stagnant economy. Abenomics, named after Prime Minister Shinzo Abes economic policies to encourage growth and private investment, is beginning to show signs that it is working. The CPI rose 1.1% year-over-year in October, marking the rst time in ve years that the CPI has remained above 1% in two consecutive months. Japans manufacturing PMI rose to 55.1, a new cycle high, and small business sentiment rose to near 20-year highs. Japans November M2 monetary base grew by 4.3% year-overyear, the fastest pace seen since February 1998, and weve continued to see weakening of the yen against the dollar. We believe that Japan will remain on its current trajectory and that Japan will be willing and ready to implement further stimulus as we saw in December, an additional $53 billion to offset the planned increase in the national sales tax. Will the Eurozone catch up with the rest of the developed markets? We saw meaningful progress out of the Eurozone in 2013 and believe that it will provide a positive economic backdrop in 2014. The Eurozone exited the recession in the second quarter, with gross domestic product expanding by 0.3% from the rst three months of the year. European economies are in an early cycle recovery and valuations are still relatively inexpensive when compared to developed markets. The Eurozones ash composite PMI climbed to a three-month high of 52.1 in December from 51.7 in November. The key to Eurozone success will hinge on getting all members of the 17-country currency bloc to synchronize growth. As there continues to be a divergence between the Eurozones biggest economies, France and Germany, we believe that policymakers need to increase their stimulus and that monetary policy will remain accommodative for 2014. China was under the microscope for much of 2013 and we anticipate them to be under the same scrutiny in 2014. Their explosive credit growth and shadow banking undermined the future of Chinas growth potential and fueled fears of a softening economy. Analysts expect the worlds second largest economy to slow to anywhere from 6.8% to 7.6% this year, which would be the weakest in 14 years. As U.S. and Eurozone economies improve, we expect export growth to pick up and support the deceleration in China. China continues to be one of the major inuential uncertainties in 2014. Overall, we are expecting positive equity returns and continued challenges in xed income for 2014. As the Fed weans the economy off of its stimulus, we will begin to see the resiliency of the markets and the true strength of the underlying economy. The Fed tapering, the Eurozone slipping back into recession, and a slowdown in China could derail the current recovery, but the return to normalcy and stabilization of markets support our positive view. Although we recognize the potential headwinds, we believe the tailwinds outweigh them, and as economies begin to show life again, a renewed vote of condence could be what spurs investors to invest back into the markets. We may not see the type of returns we saw in 2013, but the underlying fundamentals are improving and we are expecting an acceleration of global economic growth that should bode well for capital markets in 2014.

Direct access to Lake Ida. Boat, Fish, Water Ski from your own backyard. By Harvey Brown Special to The Pineapple Question: Why should I buy life insurance? Answer: Because life insurance is one of the greatest estate planning tools available to you and will positively affect the lives of your loved ones in ways you cant imagine. Insurance costs here in South Florida can really add up. By the time you add up your auto, health, and homeowners insurance you realize youre spending a good part of your budget on insurance of one type or another. As a result, adding life insurance may be the last thing on your mind when it comes to your expenses. I am here to tell you that life insurance is arguably the greatest estate planning tool that you can buy. If you have a family then it is a must-have for your nancial planning. Life Insurance will give your family the gift of time as they wont have to sell assets immediately to fund their lives. If you are unmarried or dont have children, consider expenses your family/relatives would have to cover such as caring for your pet(s), clearing up your debts, emptying they contents of your home, funeral and burial costs. Life Insurance will really help here. Life Insurance payments are usually taxfree and are paid outside of the probate process, meaning a check goes directly to you and isnt delayed by the legal process when someone dies. Often my clients will tell me they need some life insurance because they have a mortgage and want it paid off should they die. I tell them that paying off the mortgage is just the start of the expenses and they should buy at least $500,000 to $1,000,000 of coverage if possible. Why the higher limits of coverage? Houses cost money to maintain. Things break or wear out. HOA assessments can happen. A two-income household that loses a breadwinner can quickly go into the red nancially and force a sale of the house even if theres no mortgage and the remaining spouse works. Life insurance can provide the funds for kids medical expenses, school, braces, clothing (the list goes on-and-on) and aftercare or babysitting, allowing the remaining parent to make a living. College can still be possible with life insurance funding an educational account. Cars can be replaced without driving a clunker forever. If you are a business owner, life insurance is the perfect way to provide funds to keep the business going until a successor or buyer is found. If you have a business partner, then life insurance can provide funds for the remaining partner to buy out your spouses interest, giving your family the money to continue to live comfortably. Life insurance is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Too often I have seen instances where friends or acquaintances either didnt have life insurance at all or didnt have enough. It was hard to see their lifestyles change for the worse when a spouse passed away. Heres the good news: People are living longer; mortality tables are improving so rates continue to go down, which is great for the consumer! There is quite a bit more to this issue but to keep things simple I will say do yourself and your loved ones a favor buy Life Insurance and do it sooner rather than later. Ive never met a beneciary of a Life Policy who said they had too much coverage! The Harvey L. Brown Agency are experts in auto, home, business, life/health and represent over 40 companies. If you have questions or concerns about your insurance, call 561-276-0369 Monday-Friday 9-5pm. DID YOU EVER WONDER ? Insurance Q & A By Andrea Hoffer Special to The Pineapple The top leadership mistakes often made by entrepreneurs fall into four areas. The mistake I see most often with entrepreneurs is that they dont separate themselves from their business. It becomes part of their identity. This can be dangerous. If you identify so closely with your business, you may not see everything objectively and this makes it difcult to make the right decisions for your business. For example, there may be one area of your business that is losing money and needs to be reworked or replaced or your business will suffer. If you cannot separate yourself from your business, you may overlook this until it is too late to turn it around. Another mistake I see entrepreneurs make is thinking that no one can do it better than they can. This leads to micromanaging or the entrepreneur doing everything themselves. The entrepreneur continues to work in their business instead of on it, which makes it difcult to grow the business. Successful entrepreneurs see themselves as leaders and focus on growing their people to do their jobs effectively. This frees the entrepreneur up to work on the future of the business. Entrepreneurs are often visionary when they start their business but then somewhere along the way they forget how important it is to have a vision for their business. The mistake they make is getting caught up in the day-to-day operations and not leaving time to develop a vision for the business and a plan to get them there. Finally, entrepreneurs often think they dont need to learn how to lead. Many areas of leadership may come naturally to entrepreneurs; however there may also be blind spots that they are not aware of. The most successful entrepreneurs are constantly working on improving their leadership skills to be more effective. Andrea Hoffer brings a unique perspective to consulting and training.

Through the generous efforts of our associates we collected enough food to feed more than 840 people in need this holiday season, said Scott Agran, president of Lang Realty. We have realized tremendous growth this past year and look forward to continuing to give back through on-going outreach in our communities. The annual event recognizes associates for the years accomplishments. This year, Tripta Chawla, a Lang agent, brought a new milestone to the company being the only agent in the companys history to reach earnings of more than $1 million. A new award, the Diamond Star Award, was presented to her for this pinnacle of achievement. In 2013, Lang Realty opened new ofces in Jupiter, Manalapan and Hunters Run of Boynton Beach and has closed more than $1 billion in sales. For more information call 561-853-2300 or visit www.langrealty.com. NOVEMBER 2013 PROPERTY TAX COLLECTIONS BRING IN MORE THAN 75 PERCENT OF BILLED REVENUE WEST PALM BEACH, FL Anne M. Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector, reports her ofce collected $2.29 billion of the $3.02 billion billed for the 2013 property tax season during November. This revenue represents 467,985 or 68 percent of all billed properties in the 2013 cycle. November payments receive a 4 percent discount, the highest allowable by Florida law. Electronic payments increased by $72 million, or 62 percent over November 2012. Also notable is the agencys successful collaboration with area banks to convert their online bill payments from paper checks to digital payments. Thats over $31 million or nearly 10,000 bank transactions that we didnt have to hand process, said Gannon. This is a huge efciency improvement. The majority of property owners pay by mail. Of the $2.29 billion collected, $1 billion was received by mail. Unlike electronic payments, there is a higher rate of processing delays that result from taxpayers who staple, clip fold or mark on payments. These taxpayer errors cause payment rejections in the agencys high speed mechanical processing. Rejected payments must be processed manually, creating delays for property owners and increasing processing costs for the Tax Collectors ofce.

Deck The Grove Wings, Wheels & Heels The new, ultimate hanger party with a purpose debuts February 27 at Signature Flight Support Boca Raton event benets youth who age out of foster care with a real home and continued support at Place of Hope at the Haven CampusBOCA RATON, FL An ultimate hanger party will bring together the best of planes, automobiles and fashion to benet young people who age out of foster care, yet still need a place to call home. Place of Hope at the Haven Campus in western Boca Raton is proud to announce Wings, Wheels & Heels, a social event featuring a live auction of luxury recreational activities, live music/DJ, tapas from the areas most popular restaurants and an ultracool setting, the hanger of Signature Flight Support in Boca Raton. Wings, Wheels & Heels is scheduled for February 27, 2014; ticket cost is $100 per person. Sponsored by Lamborghini Palm Beach, Wings, Wheels & Heels will raise funds to create a cottage home especially for emancipated youth, or those who age out of foster care, but who still need familystyle support and guidance. Designed in the model of Villages of Hope in Palm Beach Gardens (www.villagesofhope.net), the new cottage will be supported by a new program called Alumni Impact Project. The Alumni Impact Project will encourage local alumni of universities, fraternities, sororities and other institutions to support the alumni of the foster care system, providing the youth with a network of friends and mentors. Wings, Wheels & Heels is the rst fundraiser to support this new element of the new Place of Hope at the Haven Campus, which is an extension of Place of Hope, a foster care community in Palm Beach Gardens.

The Pineapple Newspaper www.PineappleNewspaper.com Feb ruary 2014 45 By Kimberly West Business, Marketing & Sales ConsultantMarketing is taking a product or service from an idea on the drawing board into the hands of a client or customer. First and foremost decisions must be made on what products or services to offer depending on your target market, what to price them, and then how to inform your potential customer of your product so that person understands why they should choose your product or service over a competitors. With this denition of Marketing in mind, we recommend you be CLEAR on three key elements before you move forward. 1. Who is Your Target Market? Being clear about who your target market is must happen and NO, not everyone is your target market. Understanding the Demographics, Psychographics (hopes and fears) and Behaviors of your Target Market help you paint a strong picture so you know exactly whom they are and how to market to them. You will also be clear about what type of product or service they will be likely to purchase. 2. What Product or Service are you going to package for your Target Market? Now that you are clear about who your target market is, you must look at how you create, package and present your product or service. Will that product or service appeal to your target market? If yes, then what is the best way to present your product or service? In other words, how will your brand or the way your company is presented appeal to your target market. Will they see your product and say, YES, I need that. 3.) How do you reach your Target Market to inform them of your product/service? When you look at the Demographics, Psychographics and Behaviors of your target market, you will learn very clearly how to market to them. Remember that advertising and sales are just one aspect of marketing. Marketing encompasses so much more including Networking, Customer Service, Media Relations and Communications just to name a few.

What does Marketing really mean? By Colleen Hasey Schuhmann, CRPC Special to The Pineapple In addition to the emotional impact, separation and divorce can have a nancial impact when assets, debt and other nancial connections need to be divided. The negative nancial impact that separation and divorce can have has been written about extensively, and as with any major life transition, preparation is key. This article will discuss a few key issues that can have a large nancial impact on both parties. Maintaining nancial security for all involved should be the focus. States often have laws regarding separation of property; however failure to understand your states divorce law could also potentially impact the division of retirement plans, alimony, and child support. Following are some of the critical nancial issues you and your spouse will need to consider during separation and divorce. Dividing assets: In common law states, all property acquired by you or your spouse from marriage onward is subject to division. The intention is that property will be distributed equitably, but not necessarily equally. A court will consider the length of the marriage, earnings potential, responsibilities for children, debt, and tax consequences in dividing assets. However, in the nine community property states (Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin) almost all assets are divided equally. Assets acquired before marriage, gifts to an individual spouse, and individual inheritances are not subject to division in both common law and community property states. Marital debt: In common law states, in general, you are responsible for your individual debt and any debt in jointly held accounts and are not responsible for the individual debt of your spouse. However, in community property states, you will be responsible for half of all debt in jointly held accounts and potentially half of your spouses individual debt. You will be accountable for half of your spouses individual debt so long as that debt is for the general benet of the marriage. Retirement accounts: Funds accumulated over the course of a marriage are subject to applicable common land community property laws and may be subject to division during a divorce. If your employee benet or pension plan is subject to ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act), you will need to obtain a court order called a Qualied Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) and provide it to your spouses plan sponsor before distributions are completed to your spouse. The QDRO directs the plan sponsor to pay to your spouse all or a portion of the participants plan benets, subject to the terms of the Plan. Individual retirement accounts (IRAs) are subject to the Internal Revenue Code rules for transfers incident to divorce which does not require a QDRO, but does require a decree issued by a court in order to transfer assets between the IRAs of the spouses. The transfer incident to divorce rules can be applied before a divorce is nalized as long as there is a court order regarding separate maintenance and the division of the IRA. In addition to dividing retirement funds, do not forget to update your beneciary designations. Although a number of states have enacted statutes that automatically revoke beneciary designations of an IRA upon divorce, some states have ruled that an ex-spouse is entitled to the IRA where the beneciary designation is not updated. To avoid this scenario, discuss with your nancial advisor or companys benets department to update your beneciary designations upon divorce. Having legal and nancial advisors on your side is important to help educate you on your choices, advocate for your best interests and protect your nancial future for years to come.For more information, please contact Colleen Hasey Schuhmann, Vice President Wealth Management at UBS Financial Services in Boca Raton.

Campanola Special to The Pineapple When married couples have young children, often one spouse stays home while the other works outside the home. While most parents understand the necessity of purchasing a life insurance policy on the income earner, few realize the importance of also insuring the stay-at-home spouse. Being Prepared for the Unexpected What if the stay-at-home spouse suddenly died? The family would be devastated. Friends and family members would initially pitch in to help. But eventually they would return to their regular lives. Before the surviving spouse returned to work, a caretaker for the children and home would need to be hired, presenting a potential nancial hardship. Had life insurance been purchased on the stayat-home parent, however, the familys needs would have been protected. Measuring the Value of the Stay-atHome Spouse Despite the importance of the stayat-home parent, theres little research to quantify its value. In its 12th annual Mom Salary Survey, Salary.com reported the most popular functions performed by mothers equate to $112,962 per year[1] in salary. It further states the stay-at-home spouse works a 95-hour week, performing, among other roles, the duties of housekeeper, cook, day care teacher, driver, and psychologist. Flexible, Customizable Choices The type of policy you select depends on your needs and budget. Term life insurance provides affordable coverage for several years. In contrast, permanent life insurance provides protection for your entire life (provided premiums are paid) and accumulates cash value tax-deferred. This cash value can be accessed (loans accrue interest and reduce the policys cash value and death benet). Plus, riders, available with term and permanent life insurance, enable you to customize your policy to meet and grow with your changing needs. The loss of a parent is an emotional hardship for a family; purchasing insurance coverage for a stay-at-home spouse can help ensure that it doesnt become a nancial hardship as well.

LAKE WORTH, FL The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County has granted tens of thousands of dollars to local non-prot arts organizations as part of the SmARTBiz program sponsored by the Cultural Council and PNC Bank. The programs philosophy is really an equation: Good arts in a community = good quality of life = strong business development. Eleven non-prot organizations received a total of over $54,000 in grants during the SmARTBiz Summit held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center on December 10. The third annual event provided informative business, nancial and marketing sessions, as well as dynamic speakers, including billionaire philanthropist William Koch. The day-long program, which attracted more than 200 attendees representing arts organization all over Palm Beach County, also helped guide non-prot organizations in how to improve the efciency of their operations. Cultural Council Director of Grants Jan Rodusky says Each year SmARTBiz gives us an opportunity to bring together our local arts and business communities to learn from each other, and inspire them to do great things in Palm Beach County. The collaboration between SmARTBiz and the grant recipient organizations will present many opportunities for training that will lead to concrete connections between business and the arts at the partner institutions, says Craig Grant, PNC regional president for eastern Florida. At PNC, we understand that a rich arts community is a signicant driver of our economic success, but most importantly, children who learn about the arts early in life are more likely to remain involved and connected to the arts later on.Tens of thousands in grants awarded to Palm Beach County arts organizations

( Although its set in medieval times, Pippin is actually a joyous musical satire of the changing American culture in the early 1970s, explains the shows director, Keith Garsson. Its another of Bob Fosses classic (yet intimate) shows that proves once again his style has never dated. The musical comedy highlights a young man (Mike Westrich recently of Tick, Tick... Boom!) who tries to nd himself, Garsson continues, And reects the baby boomers coming of age as they took longer to decide careers, life partners, and children. Guiding Pippin through his various peregrinations is the Leading Player (Cabonell Award-winner Reggie White fresh from the national tour of Porgy and Bess) who opens the show with the classic number Magic To Do. Pippin features one of the most entertaining and vivacious scores in Broadway history by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), Garsson says. And were thrilled to have Carbonell Award-winner Patti Gardner back after her terric performance in our 2013 seasons production of Chicago, along with Leah Sessa as Katherine, Troy Stanley as King Charlemagne, Conor Walton and Randy Charleville. ( I love playing the role of the Leading Player, Whitehead states, Because I always nd something new in the character and the show. This is my third time doing this role, and now that I am a little older, with a different outlook on life in general, I suppose some of that life experience will help me shape this incarnation, at this stage of my life. Patti Gardner and Mike Westrich are equally excited to be a part of the Boca Raton Theatre Guilds rst 2014 production: ( Im playing two roles: Fastrada and Berthe, says Gardner. Berthe is the role Ive ALWAYS wanted to play ever since I saw the original production of Pippin in New York. Both women are diametrically opposed in every way...so itll be great fun to do that. ( Im thrilled to be playing such an amazing role, as I love the score to Pippin, Westrich says. I love the interpretive nature of the piece and I cant wait to bring a new Pippin to the stage Tickets for Pippin are on sale now and can be purchased by calling 561-3473948.

Wick announced The Wick Theatres third production in their inaugural season, 42nd Street opened on January 9th to enthusiastic applause and continues to sell-out each performance as the word-ofmouth spreads. The response has been so overwhelming that weve decided to extend the show another week through February 15th. 42nd Street is thought to be the quintessential Broadway musical. Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes, the story focuses on the heroine, Peggy Sawyer (Julie Kleiner fresh from her recent star turn in Irving Berlins White Christmas) who is plucked from the chorus to save the day when the leading lady takes a tumble and cant go on. This production boasts the largest cast to date at the Wick, with 24 singing and dancing actors. The incredible cast of 22 singers and dancers recall the hey-day of the American musical theatre with a performance chock full of sentimental musical favorites like Shufe Off to Buffalo, Were in the Money, Lullaby of Broadway and, of course, 42nd Street. With the skillful guidance of veteran director, Norb Joerder and choreography by Florida resident, Ron Hutchins, a trip down the Wicks 42nd Street is a love letter to the great musical extravaganzas of the 20s & 30s. And, if that isnt enough to whet your appetite, the cast is dressed in an assortment of fabulous costumes from the 1980 Broadway production and the 2001 revival that are part of the permanent collection at the Wicks Costume Museum and Costume World, Inc. all coordinated under the skilled eye of Kimberly Wick. The 42nd Street cast also features Jim Ballard, as the driven director, Julian Marsh; Aaron Bower as the aging diva, Dorothy Brock and Alex Jorth as Peggys would-be suitor, Billy Lawlor. Rounding out the cast are a host of local favorites that include Missy McArdle, Alan Gerstel, Jeffrey Bruce and Christopher George Patterson, who also serves as the companys dance captain. We are thrilled to have such incredibly talented people working on this show, said Resident Musical Director, Michael Ursua. This is going to be exciting and memorable production! Now extended through February 15th, showtimes for 42nd Street are Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Wick Theatre box ofce at 561-995-2333 or on the web at www.theWick.org.

Petes friends and admirers take this special occasion to honor Pete with a concert of songs based upon the book he coauthored, Carry It On.

Tickets are available on line (LakeWorthPlayhouse.org) and at the Playhouse box ofce for the 2PM matinee and the 7PM evening concert. Ticket prices are $20/$25 in advance and $26/$30 at the door. The concert benets three Lake Worth nonprot organizations. In 1985, Pete Seeger compiled Carry It On, a history of the Labor Movement, co-authored by Bob Reiser. For decades Seeger had been performing with labor on picket lines and at rallies. With his pal Woody Guthrie, Pete toured the country adapting words for the labor movement to old-time melodies. When rst printed, the publisher used a non-union press. Pete and his wife Toshi withdrew all of their savings to have the book reprinted on a union press. Anne Feeney, nationally recognized labor performer joins a cast of local musicians, all recognized for their musical talent and ability to engage audiences. The concert will be narrated by Charlie Birnbaum, deep-voiced manager of the Stonzek Movie Theater. Sharing part of the narration will be the voice of Pete Seeger. On the screen, behind the performers, will be photographs of Petes life, and the words to all of the songs, so the audience can sing-along. A wine and cheese reception with the performers for both afternoon and evening concerts will be held for the audiences between concerts at the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery at 15 South J.

Run dates are February 1 through 16, 2014, and tickets are $30. Set in the madcap Sycamore household, this play is a virtual celebration of American individualism. Everyone in the Sycamore family is encouraged to explore his (or her) personal passions. Their model is Grandpa Vanderhof, a man who quit his 9-to-5 job in middle-age to devote himself to the joy of simply living. Outsiders tend to look askance at Grandpas lackadaisical life-style, including his grand-daughters prospective in-laws and the Internal Revenue Service; but in this rambunctious comedy, individualism triumphs in one of the funniest dinner parties ever seen on a stage. Jim McConville plays Grandpa Vanderhof, while Charlotte Sherman and Bill Manikas play his daughter and son-in-law. Some of the people introduced to their unusual life-style are Dante Marelli (as a free-loading ballet instructor), Jay Underkoer as an I.R.S. agent and Francine Mulliez as an migr Russian Countess. Tickets for YOU CANT TAKE IT WITH YOU are $30, $15 for students 18 and younger. To make reservations, call The Playhouse Box Ofce at (561) 272-1281 Ext. 4.

Not many women have chosen to walk the path of Woody Guthrie, but Feeney has made a career of it for the past 35 years. Feeneys bottomless songbag draws on Irish, bluegrass, traditional, labor, pop, folk, and contemporary material. Shes as likely to sing a traditional song or an obscure gem, as she is to sing one of her own award-winning songs. Anne Feeney will be performing in Boca Raton on Saturday February 15. The show is a benet for Peace Action, the nations largest, grassroots peace organization. The event is being organized locally by War vs Human Needs, South Florida (WvHN), an Organizational Member of Peace Action. While Feeney may prefer the excitement of rallies and demonstrations, many of her fans prefer a pepper-spray free environment to listen to the songs and stories that make up her sometimes caustic, often hilarious, always inspiring show. The woman that Utah Phillips called the best labor singer in North America will perform: Saturday February 15, 2014 at 7PM at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, 2601 St Andrews Blvd. in Boca Raton. Tickets: $15-$25 Its a benet, folks. No one turned away for inability to pay.

58 February 2014 www.PineappleNewspaper.com T he Pineapple Newspaper destinations Mata, a Malayan Tiger, returns to Palm Beach ZooWEST PALM BEACH, FL A familiar face that many members of the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society will remember has returned to the Zoo. Keemasan Mata, typically referred to as Mata, is back after more than two years at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL. Mata, a 334-pound eight-year-old male Malayan tiger, has returned as part of a breeding recommendation under the Species Survival Plan (SSP) by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Mata fathered three cubs at Busch Gardens, and zookeepers at the Palm Beach Zoo are hopeful he will mate with Berapi, the female tiger who successfully littered three tiger brothers, Jaya, Bunga and Penari, in 2011. Nancy Nill, Associate Curator for the Palm Beach Zoo, is thrilled to have Mata back. Nill worked closely with the tiger when he was at the Zoo from November 2006 to April 2011. Words cant describe how excited we are to receive Mata, said Nill. He was an amazing tiger to work with when he was previously here, and it appears this has not changed. He was also a favorite of many of our Zoo members, so it is an exciting time for them as well. I am also looking forward to the possibility to be able to see tiger cubs born and raised here again, she continued. We were very fortunate the rst time, so hopefully we will be fortunate again. Zoo ofcials say Mata has returned as a more experienced tiger regarding breeding, so they are optimistic that he will father cubs again. Right now, Mata is in the tiger nighthouse behind Tiger Falls, the Zoos Malayan tiger habitat, where he will remain until he and Berapi can be safely reintroduced. About the Palm Beach Zoo The Zoological Society of the Palm Beaches exists to inspire people to act on behalf of wildlife. We advance our conservation mission through endangered species propagation, education and support of conservation initiatives in the eld. Our commitment to sustainable business practices elevates our capacity to inspire others. The Palm Beach Zoo is a located at 1301 Summit Boulevard in West Palm Beach, Florida.

President, Angela Kumar reects, It truly was an evening to remember and honor those hardy and adventurous pioneers that settled here in the late 1800s and turned Delray Beachs raw land into the humble beginnings of a rural farm town along the banks of what is now known as the Intracoastal Waterway. They were lled with awe by the untouched wilderness and saw something in Delray. They persevered and tamed the wild into a thriving community. Weve come full circle with our Winter Harvest event and are thankful to all of the local farms in our area and the restaurants who support them! Angela adds, We really wanted to get the word about our local farmers, CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs and area farm markets. Weve been overwhelmed with the positive feedback weve received and requests to hold additional events like this. The community really came together, had a great time and celebrated something truly unique and special happening in Delray Beach.

The show stars Danny Murphy, a professional actor who has appeared in several major motion pictures including Theres something about Mary, Kingpin, Shallow Hall, Hall Pass, and Me, Myself, and Irene. In Rollin with Murph, Danny who is a chair user, explores the accessibility attributes of the establishment for people in chairs, walkers and strollers. I love going into restaurants and shops where the owner is the person that welcomes you and prepares your order. Especially when the owner is as unique as the one at Gizzis Coffee on South Federal Highway. Im sure there are more than few people reading this that believe the gregarious fellow behind the counter with the exotic accent is Gizzi. Hes not. Hes Andreas, but he is the owner, and he and his coffee shop are far from regular Joes. Gizzis is way beyond any coffee shop youll find in Delray Beach...from 50 varieties of organic coffee to Andreas off center commentary, there are many reasons to try Gizzis and even more reasons to come back again and again. In fact, it is rumored that close to 70% of the people that come through Gizzis doors each day are regulars. You can count me in that group now as I have grown fond of Gizzis organic teas and organic desserts. Of course, coffee consumers of every demographic find java love at Gizzis. Lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, ice coffees, and a daily variety of fresh brews are available throughout the day. For those non-coffee fans, Gizzis offers a full line of smoothies, vitamin drinks, sorbets, low calorie/no carbs beverages, and as I mentioned earlier, a nice assortment of organic teas. You can also purchase Gizzis organic coffees in bulk to take home. The food selection at Gizzis is also varied, with a strong connection to fresh and organic. You can enjoy all the typical fair such as bagels, scones, assorted pastries, croissants and cheesecake, but for those seeking healthier choices, Gizzis does not disappoint. There are many organic sweets and even an assortment of gluten free options including cookies and banana bread. If you have a grander appetite, Gizzis has that covered too. There are a plethora of freshly prepared breakfast sandwiches from which to choose. I indulged in a turkey, egg, and cheese on a bagel, and it was Gizzilicious. My camera man woofed down a bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant in record time, and then chased it with a cheese Danish. To be young again. Lunch and dinner choices include a variety of salads and ciabbatta bread paninis. The interior of Gizzis is spacious and comfortable with a fireplace and plenty of seating. While I visited, there were many patrons gazing into their laptops and tablets and taking advantage of the free Wi Fi. Gizzis hosts live entertainment, and also provides space to a varied group of organizations. Seems all kinds of different folks enjoy the comforts and hospitality that is Gizzis...from business groups to AA meetings...even speed dating. For me, the ample free parking, the covered walk ways, and spacious interior are a huge plus. Too often, chair users or others with mobility challenges have a difficult time maneuvering in local restaurants. Gizzis made accessibility a priority when designing the business and it shows. But the one thing that separates Gizzis from the rest is Andreas. You just never know what hes going to say next, as my friend found out during the filming of our Rollin with Murph episode. His quick wit and contagious laughter, paired with fabulous organic beverage and food options make Gizzis worthy of a visit. Make sure to tell him Murph sent you. Thats how I roll, Murph To see the Rollin with Murph episode featuring Gizzis, visit www.thefoodbeat.com Gizzis Coffee 2275 S Federal Hwy, Delray Beach, FL 33483 www.gizzisdelray.com Zona Fresca celebrated grand opening in Delray Beach with ribbon cutting ( DELRAY BEACH, FL Zona Fresca, not your everyday Mexican food, but Mexican food you can eat every day, celebrated the grand opening of its Delray Beach location with a ribbon cutting ceremony and menu sampling.

Chef Eric Baker Key Lime Scones!A South Florida TraditionCultivated for thousands of years in the Indo-Malayan region, the Key lime made its way to North Africa and the Near East via Arabian traders, and then was carried on to Palestine and Mediterranean Europe by the Crusaders. Columbus is credited with bringing the Key lime to Haiti, where it was introduced by Spanish settlers to Florida. The Key Lime along with other Florida citrus has seen its fair share of hard times. Hurricanes and citrus canker over the years have seriously depleted supply and hindered growing. But, if youre lucky, youve got Key Limes growing in your backyard. They are yellower and smaller than Persian limes and are coveted for their unique aroma and taste. If you dont have your own Key Lime tree, you can purchase a Mexican variety of Key Lime in your local grocery store.
