Mason, 7, told his high school friend Hayze that he was looking forward to watching his favorite football team the Philadelphia Eagles opening game for the 2018 season. Hayze surprised Mason by telling him he would be coming over to watch the game. And that wasnt the only sur prise involving the Eagles and football. As the boys watched the high school team practice, Hayze informed Mason of another surprise: Mason would be joining the team during the next home game on the eld. On Oct. 5, Mason will receive a hando from the Atlantic High quarter back with blocks from the rest of the team as he runs the football in for a touchdown play. Wow! Mason said as his friend Hayze told him the news. ats so cool! Aer Mason learned the news, Atlantic High head football coach TJ Jackson called for a break in practice and they all huddled around Mason.

2 [FROM PG 1]Atlantic Community High School Football Team to gain honorary teammate for next home game held a 2-0 record. As practice resumed with running sprints, the players yelled out Mason as they ran. Mason and Hayze met three years ago at a Miracle League game. Miracle League is a baseball league with a special eld that provides the opportunity for all children to play baseball regardless of their abilities. Players are helped by buddies. And on that day, Mason and Hayze both needed buddies. Since then, they have spent Saturdays at Miracle League games together. Mason said he lost count of how many homers he has hit. But his buddy Hayze said he hits a home run nearly every time he goes up to bat. One of the best surprises Mason gave to Hayze was when he ran the bases without his walker just before Hayzes birthday. Mason was born with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, a disease resulting in decreased exibility of the joints. I was shocked, Hayze said of Masons run around the bases without using his walker. Masons mother Jasmin omas said programs like Miracle League and the chance for Mason to play in a football game are amazing. I never get a chance to watch him play because I have to help him play, she said. She said it is amazing to watch Hayze and Masons relationship grow through Mir acle League and through the upcoming football game. Even when Mason is having a hard day or is tired, if it is Saturday, he tells his mom he is going to Miracle League to see Hayze, she said. e chance for Mason to play for the Delray Beach Eagles was orchestrated by Hayze. Hayze is a sophomore at Atlantic High and is in the International Baccalaureate Programme. For his required culminating personal project, he had to come up with an idea that makes an impact in the community. is idea popped into my head, he said. Raising awareness for children with disabilities is important to me. In addition to allowing Mason to hit the eld with the players, the project will help raise awareness for children with special needs. Fans at the game will receive informational literature provided by Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita Support, Inc. Hayze will also have to complete a video, essay and trifold board presentation for a showcase in the spring. Defensive coach Jamael Stewart said this is the rst time with the current coaching sta that the team has participated in something like this. Its heartwarming, he said. To put a smile on a kids face and make an impact, its wonderful. Its all about how you make others feel and I cant wait for it. e game will be played at Atlantic Community High School, located at 2455 W. Atlantic Ave. e community is invited to cheer on and root for Mason and the Atlantic Eagles against the Santaluces High School Chiefs. Kick-o is at 6 p.m. New Negro Movement, named aer the 1925 anthology by Alain Locke. e history on inuential personalities from Florida who were a part of the movement will merge with todays technology to create an interactive exhibit that incorporates 3D and virtual reality. ere will be three distinct virtual reality experiences that feature murals and artifacts. Its another way to help people feel like they were there, Museum Director Charlene Farrington said. e goal of the project is to combine digital humanities and technology innovation to educate, inform and excite visitors. An opening reception will take place from 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 5. e exhibition is based on e Virtual Harlem Project, an established digital humanities project by Bryan Carter, an Associate Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Arizona, who specializes in African American literature of the 20th Century, with a primary focus on the Harlem Renaissance and digital culture. As part of the exhibit, thirty-something actor and playwright Daron Stewart performs his one-man show, Soul of Langston, on Fri. Nov. 2. Written, conceived and acted by Stewart, the show highlights the works of writer and poet James Mercer Langston Hughes, who, along with his contemporaries, Zora Neale Hurston,Wallace urman,and Claude McKay, were integral parts of the intellectual, cultural and social life of the period in the early 1920s New York City, known as e Har lem Renaissance. His poem, e Negro Speaks of Rivers, became his signature poem, and appeared in his rst book of poetry,e Weary Blues, published in 1926. Well-traveled, Hughes wrote novels, plays, operas, essays, and childrens books, and a rst short storycollection, titled e Ways of White Folks. During the Spanish Civil War he worked as a foreign correspondent for an African-American newspaper in Baltimore, MD. In his poetry, Hughes is credited with experimenting with the new literary art form calledjazz poetry. Why did Stewart choose to create a performance piece based on the life and work of Hughes? I looked around to see who is interesting and who is or isnt getting exposure, Stewart said by phone from his home in California. While there is a lot of material on Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King, Hughes is more obscure. Ive always been a fan of his poetry, and one thing Ive come to admire about him is that he doesnt mind being in the background, Stewart said. He doesnt have to take charge or be the leader. Aer being bitten by the acting bug, Stewart was searching for a vehicle in which he could realize his creative skills. He began jotting down ideas and notes and doing research. He was dismayed to see that at the MLK Library in Washington, DC, Jackie Robinson was given more prominence than Langston Hughes. Its important for people to understand that there is more to the civil rights movement than Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, he said. In his writings and lectures, Hughes laid the foundation for the civil rights movement to emerge. Besides being a new father, running a production company and creating a web series, Do I Have To? a romantic comedy before each performance of Soul of Langston, Stewart gets into character by immersing himself in Hughess life. Using Michael Jordan as his role model of preparation, Hughes says, I look at clips of Langston, read all I can and get into the script. As many times as Ive performed the show, I keep discovering new layers about his life and work. I want to introduce Langston Hughes to a new generation and reintroduce him to a generation that may only slightly remember him, Stewart said. What I want in every perfor mance is to have a platform to reach the audience especially when that audience is kids. Its an honor and a responsibility, he said. Its the responsibility of an artist to not just entertain but also to provoke. Like most actors, he is looking for steady, consistent, longterm work. I like to create, he said. ats my passion. Whether Im on stage or in front of a camera, most important to me is the work itself. Its all about the characters, not being the star. Stewart might be the star of this production, but like Hughes himself, he doesnt mind taking a back seat. I just want to do good work, he said. Highlighting the show, e Spady Museum will welcome actor and playwright Daron Stewart, as he performs his one-man show, Soul of Langston, on Fri., Nov. 2 from 6-8 p.m. Cost: $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Stewart will be in Delray Beach Oct. 31 Nov. 2, and will be available to conduct educational workshops on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Cost per workshop: $700. Workshops will be scheduled on a rst-come-rst-served basis. To schedule a workshop, please contact the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum at 561-279-8883.

4 Delray Beach ranked No. 5 small city for small businesses Staff report Delray Beach is No. 5 out of 50 small cities that are the best places to start a small business, according to a new report from Verizon Business. e report evaluated 300 cities across the country with populations between 50,000 and 75,000. It looked at six factors including the education level of the local workforce, in-city commute times, per capita income, broadband access, availability of SBA loans, and overall tax friendliness. Eight Florida cities made the list, with Delray Beach claiming the second highest rank among them. Weston edged out Delray as the No. 2 city. Portland, Maine took the No. 1 spot. In the last several years, weve worked very deliberately to build an ecosystem of support to help small business start up, grow and thrive in our community, said Economic Development Director Joan K. Goodrich. Its encouraging to know that our collaborative eorts with our community partners have helped make Delray Beach one of Floridas leading communities for entrepreneurs and small businesses. According to the Verizon Business report, smaller cities can be an attractive option for small business owners looking for an industrious region to grow, while avoiding the chaos and competition of large cities. is is what the report said about Delray Beach: eres more of a draw to this city than its spread of sunny beaches along the southeastern coast of the state. Not quite as high on the education scale as Weston but higher than Kissimmee, Delray Beach is a happy Floridian medium with the shortest average commute time between the three cities. It enjoys a thriving industry of restaurants, nightclubs, retail shops, and art galleries, which is important to keep in mind when considering where to put your businesss roots down. And hey, the beach might not be the most important thing, but a beach day every now and then denitely couldnt hurt. Delray Beach Commissioner Ryan Boylston is also a small business owner. His oce on Atlantic Avenue houses his creative agency 2TON and a co-working space for small business start-ups called the KTCHN. Delray Beachs small business ecosystem extends far beyond our famous Atlantic Ave. merchants and restaurants, he said. We are a secret entrepreneur magnet because of our work/life atmosphere. Seems the secret is out now. Delray Beach has focused on small business growth as part of its overall economic development strategy, as more than 93 percent of its companies are small businesses employing 30 or fewer people. To do so, in 2015, the Oce of Economic Development (OED) launched its multi-faceted business retention and expansion strategy called G.E.A.R. (Grow, Expand and Retain) along with its We Heart Small Biz campaign to recognize the social and economic impact of local small businesses. e strategy encompasses quarterly partner meetings, report cards, client referrals, an account management system, business walks, industry roundtables, market research, planning studies, responsive small business policy development and emerging business services. e Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency also oers several funding assistance programs that have helped many small businesses get established, create jobs and renovate buildings. For more than 20 years, the CRA has produced the Delray GreenMarket, a family friendly Saturday morning farmers market that incubates food-and agriculture-based small businesses. In 2017, the CRA launched the Arts Warehouse, a 15,000-square-foot arts incubator and event facility, in the Pineapple Grove Arts District. It is an honor for the City of Delray Beach to be recognized by Verizon Business as a leader for small business development and entrepreneurship, said Je Costello, Executive Director of the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. Supporting a constructive relationship with small businesses within Delray Beach has lead to the growth of the local economy. Other local economic development partners supporting small businesses include the Downtown Development Authority, Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, Delray Beach Public Library, Small Business Development Center @ FAU. Delray tax rate down, budget up By: Marisa Herman Associate Editor e city of Delray Beach will have $134 million to spend in its operating budget this upcoming scal year. at number is a bump up from $118 million this current year. e increase is thanks to rising property values in the city. Commissioners agreed to lower its millage rate by one tenth of a mill. Property owners can expect to pay $6.979 per $1,000 of assessed property value. If you own a home valued at $300,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption, your property tax bill from the city will total about $1,779. Two commissioners wanted to see a bigger break for the taxpayers. Mayor Shelly Petrolia and Commissioner Adam Frankel voted against the millage rate on the rst public hearing last month. is is the time to be able to give back, give some relief, so that in the future, if we do need to turn to our constituency and ask for a budget increase, we have some exibility, Petrolia said. We have never really returned a good amount in a windfall year. We never seem to be able to nd a way to return money to the taxpayers who are paying a lot of money. Commissioner Frankel said he remembers when the citys budget was only $90 million just a few year ago and the discussion on the budget was about essential services versus luxury items. He said he sees opportunities for fees to help pay for items in the budget. e city recently installed more parking meters. Frankel suggested implementing a fee for transient rentals. Fees can be garnered to reduce the impact on homeowners, he said. But with backlogged infrastructure needs, other commissioners did not want to lower the tax rate anymore. Of concern to Commissioner Shirley Johnson was public safety. e last year of a three year plan to add more reghters is not funded in the budget. e new scal year starts Oct. 1.

6 Annette Jackson of the Delray Beach Orchid Society 1 What is the Delray Beach Orchid Society? Tell us about the group and its history. e Delray Beach Orchid Society, founded in 1974, dedicates itself to promoting the hobby of orchid growing. e Society hosts monthly meetings on orchid culture and conservation with local, national and international speakers.

How did you become interested in orchids? I have held many positions on the Board of Trustees. is year I am Treasurer. I am also the show chair, having run the show, with the help of many, for several years. I began collecting orchids by chance. My husband and I went to the orchid show out of curiosity about 15 years ago. We loved looking at the orchids but didnt buy anything. It must have been fate because we did buy a rae ticket. On Sunday we received a call that we won an orchid and went to pick it up. We asked the woman we picked it up from, How do we take of this? She said, Come to a meeting and nd out. at was it. We got hooked. It is a wonderful addiction. I have over 100 orchids all around my home. 4 What is your favorite type of or chid? My favorite orchid is the Cattleya. Most people refer to it as the corsage orchid. e owers are absolutely gorgeous, most have a beautiful aroma. e drawback is the owers only last a week or two at most. I just started collecting miniatures, which are giving me great pleasure right now. Its also the only way I can continue to buy because Ive run out of room! 5 What are your tips for keeping or chids alive? First of all dont overwater. More orchids are killed by overwatering. Orchids do not want to sit in a dish of water. Take them to the sink, let water run through the or chid for about a minute, let it drain and put it back where you had it. e myth of putting ice cubes in orchids is just that... a myth. You will not grow hardy orchids with a couple of ice cubes. Light air and food are also important. ere will be growing instruction handouts at the show at the DBOS membership table. We meet the second Wednesday of each month (except December when we have our o site holiday party) at Veterans Park at 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome and rst timers will receive a free rae ticket for attending. Delray looks to settle legal battle with downtown landownersStaff report A majority of Delray Beach commissioners preferred to negotiate a settlement with downtown property owners Billy Himmelrich and David Hosokawa rather than go through with a $6.9 million lawsuit over building height. e litigation from the landowners was led against the city of Delray Beach in May. e complaint was over downtown building height limits. e claim alleged the height limits imposed by the city a few years ago restricted their property and development rights. ey own four parcels of land on East Atlantic Avenue. Two buildings, which restaurants Tramonti and Cabana El Rey are housed in and two parking lots. e suit stated the city violated the Bert Harris Act when it imposed a new development rule that restricted new construction to three stories or 38 feet. Previously four-stories had been permitted. In late June the city led a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which was seeking $6.9 million from the city. Last month, the commission directed the city attorney to go forward with a settlement agreement oered by the landowners. e deal involved taking the height limitation o of their property. at means the landowners would have the potential to build a four story project on the site in the future. Any new development would have to follow the citys other development rules. Mayor Shelly Petrolia and Commissioner Bill Bathurst cast dissenting votes while the majority of the commission supported the settlement.

7 LIFE Heather McDonald at Crest Theatre  INSIDE Palm Beach County Halloween at the Addison Boca celeb Shari Upbin helms Hollywood Live production to benefit Insight for the BlindBy: Dale King Contributing Writer Visually impaired residents of South Florida benet from free talking books available free at area libraries. But how do these specialized books and magazines come to life? Volunteers read and record these aids at Insight for the Blind, an organization whose mission is to help improve the quality of life for blind and visually impaired children and adults by promoting literacy and learning and aiding in appreciation for reading by producing recorded books, magazines and articles. Serendipity apparently stepped in when Insight for the Blind CEO Matt Corey was thinking about conducting a fundraiser for the group. He decided to ask for help from Shari Upbin, a Boca Raton woman whose extensive background in theater, stage perfor mance and work as an independent producer, are well known in New York and Palm Beach County. e pair, aer all, are friends, and Matt has provided the lighting work for many of Sharis local shows. When Matt popped the question Will you produce a fundraising show for us? Sharis answer wasnt yes or no. It was when and where. Aer a modicum of consideration, she chose the Pompano Beach Cultural Center at 50 Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach, as the venue for a dazzling evening of entertainment to benet Insight for the Blind. e longtime performer who began dancing on stage at age 3, who per formed in talent shows until age 11 and who earned her Actors Equity card by age 13 is directing Hollywood Live! featuring an all-star cast of notable local performers and showcasing what Shari calls some of the most beloved songs from the Silver Screen from the 1940s on. e show that Shari Upbin has staged in New York and South Florida will enthrall the audience at the Pompano performance venue on Oct. 1. Red car pet opening at 6:30 p.m.; show begins at 7:45 p.m. For this event, shes tapped a whos who of top area theater entertainers to vocalize a variety of familiar tunes. Scheduled to perform are Jerey Bruce, Lindsey Corey, Laura Hodos, Conor Walton, Amy Tanner, Mark Sanders and Sandi Stock, with musical and band direction by Caryl Fantel, Roy Fantel and Rupert Ziawinksi. Hollywood Live features a wealth of songs and juicy stories, explained Upbin. We will be recreating classic clips from famed MGM musicals and shar ing some fascinating tinsel town tales as well. e event will be the perfect opportunity for the audience to experience a spectacular evening while supporting one of the most worthwhile or ganizations. Proceeds will allow Insight for the Blind to continue promoting literacy within the visually impaired community through the recording of Talking Books, a program of the Library of Congress. How does Corey feel? We are thrilled to present this star-studded event as a way to increase awareness and support for our organization. Daughter of a writer for iconic comedian Jack Benny, Shari has produced and directed in New York and regionally: Vincent, the Passions of the Artist Van Gogh, Danny Kaye & Sylvia, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret and Jacques Brel.

15 McArt-driven, play-reading series at Lynn opens Season 6 this month By: Dale King Contributing Writer Playwrights and actors of every type, style and skill level have a forever friend in Jan McArt. A dramaturgical legend who has been to Broadway and back, and is renowned for bringing live performances to Boca Raton at her famed, former dinner theater, McArt continues to foster theatrical prowess through her New Play-Reading Series at Boca Ratons Lynn University. e series begins its sixth season Oct. 22 when McArt produces the rst of four specially selected plays featuring familiar, talented local artists entertaining audiences with works written by playwrights with South Florida ties. Named by two governors as Floridas First Lady of eater, McArt, now director of theatrical development at Lynn, has guided her award-winning series of play-readings to inestimable success. I love it, she says, because its creative, and Im making things happen. Her mission with this play-recitation schedule? To develop new, commercially entertaining plays by Florida playwrights. But theres more to McArts presentations than just bringing actors to the stage to stand and read lines in front of microphones. Each year, she chooses four new plays written by men and women who call the Sunshine State home. Each composition is rehearsed and rewritten, with writers and actors toiling together as the nal performance evolves. Finally, the newly revised work is presented in the 750-seat Wold Center to what McArt calls an ever-growing, enthusiastic audience. Tony Finstrom is associate producer and Wayne Rudisill is resident director for this series. Opening night will reveal a play called e Diamond Girl. Written by Finstrom and directed by Rudisill, the 7:30 p.m. show offers a contemporary take on an old-fashioned story. McArt, who is also one of the players, describes the show as an epic yet intimate tale of greed, lust and lies thats part mystery, part comedy and part romance, played out against the colorful backdrop of Victorian London. McArt will be joined in this intriguing stage characterization by Jordan Armstrong, Leigh Bennett, Jerey Bruce, Ann Marie Olson, Leah Sessa and Mike Westrich, notable artisans in the local theater world. Finstrom says McArts entry in the play-reading genre is far more motivating than other, similar presentations in which the actors come in and read through it in the aernoon and present it to an audience that evening. Oen, the cast is simply seated in a semi-circle, or perhaps theyll step up with their scripts to music stands when its their characters turn to speak. But the McArt play-reading brand is much more ambitious, giving playwrights the chance to bring in a new drama and work with a professional cast and a director for ve days -rehearsing, re-writing, rehearsing, rewriting. en, at the end of the ve days, they present their new, polished, reworked play to the public. ese are staged readings in the true sense of the word, Finstrom adds. With actors up on their feet, playing on a minimal set, with lighting, some sound eects, wearing bits of costumes. Like a real performance of a new play, except the actors, of course, carry their scripts. McArt has scored well with some previous presentations, such as: Dan Clancys Proposition 8, which landed at the Desert Rose Playhouse in Rancho Mirage, Calif., under the title Poster Boys in the spring of 2014. Christopher Demos-Brown s Childs Play, presented at Miamis Zoetic Stage to great acclaim under the title Stripped.

18 Fourth quarter victoryBy: Christine King Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers As we begin the nal quarter of the year, thoughts turn to the many festive holidays and parties ahead. With this comes tradition in culinary selections, cocktails and jubilance. Many also admit it is a time of overindulgence in food, drink, sweet treats and more. Even worse, the next three months are deadly for maintaining regular exercise and overall activity levels. Unfortunately, a natural progression is the temptation to completely abandon healthy eating. e great news is that with a little thought and focus you can altogether avoid gaining the proverbial Holiday Weight this year. With just a little planning your clothes wont bulge at the seams aer a Holiday dinner, and by January youll feel better than ever! e best place to begin is your calendar. Aside from the typical week to week entries, also insert all social and business engagements and workouts. is lays the groundwork for a strategic plan to ensure you enjoy this Season and keep your health and weight on track. Here are some simple scheduling, activity and food hacks: 1. No matter what, dont cancel your workouts (you know, the ones in your calendar). Whether you work out with friends or a personal trainer, this joyous season oozes matters of being over-served, sleep deprivation and waking up knowing you over did it the night before. Not to worry, many people at the gym are feeling your pain. Maintaining consistent workouts allows your body to sweat out all of those pesky toxins. Add in some extra hydration, and youll feel like a rock-star. 2. Each week, take control of food choices by understanding exactly how many nights youll be home versus out. You likely know which events will be fabulous and those that are obligatory to attend where the nutritional quality and selection of food isnt that great. For the latter, eat something healthy & lling before the event. Soup, salad, legumes or a protein shake are all excellent selections. At the gathering, you wont be as hungry and therefore less likely to waste time on unenjoyable fat and calories. is consciousness now allows for appreciation of the parties with great food and enjoyment without the guilt. 3. Evenings spent at home are genuinely the time you have full control over the menu. While reviewing each week hone in on these nights for the healthy and nutritious food your body is craving. Dont forget to prepare extra for the rest of the weeks lunches, snacks, and dinners. 4. Use time o from work to engage in fun activities with loved ones and friends. People are happy when theyre in motion. A little competition elevates the experience and is a great motivator to keep moving. Whether friendly and casual or more serious and very competitive; bowling, water polo, basketball, golf, tennis, and other sports can be fun and easy for everyone to participate. 5. Five or 10 minutes of some of your favor ite exercises does make a big dierence. See a quick two-minute video for a demo workout here: https://bit.ly/2OaStMT 6. Hydrate, hydrate, and then hydrate again, with water. 7. Each week take one day of rest from everything! e parties, social activity, and exercise. Use this time to nourish your mind and soul. Listen to music, play with your children, watch football, anything that makes you happy but relaxed.

20 Boca Regional to launch stroke awareness initiative on World Stroke DayBy: Marisa Herman Associate Editor e Marcus Neuroscience Instituteat Boca Raton Regional Hospital is hosting a public awareness event on World Stroke Day at the hospital. On Oct. 29, the hospital will launch an initiative that aims to bring awareness about the signs, symptoms and urgency of getting a stroke patient to the hospital to 5,000 people over the course of the year. Chief of Cerebrovascular &Endovascular Neurosurgery and Medical Director of stroke Dr. Brian Snelling said the goal is to create awareness and educate as many people as possible about strokes. We think the best way to treat patients is through education, Dr. Snelling said. Since 2015, he said stroke therapy has been revolutionized twice. e rst time an advancement took place was in 2015 aer the New England Jour nal of Medicine released information on trials that showed removing acute stroke clots from the brain was benecial, he said. He said that the study emphasized the importance of getting a person with a stroke to the hospital fast to undergo a catheter-based procedure. At the time, the time frame totaled about six hours. is year, he said new trials were conducted that show that window can actually be longer than six hours. In some patients, he said the treatment works up to 24 hours aer the stroke. In addition to new knowledge on treating strokes, he said the hospital has cutting edge technology to assist in treatment. We are on the cutting edge of stroke care, he said. We have an amazing soware. Its really phenomenal and helps treat patients faster. e hospital has a soware called RAPID that shows what parts of the brain are at risk or at a benet during a thrombectomy procedure. To help teach people about the signs and symptoms of a stroke, Dr. Snelling said remember the acronym BE FAST.

21 Phantom neurological conditions: Giving validity to your otherwise disregarded symptomsBy: Dr. John Conde, DC DACNB Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers Quite oen, patients visit our oce with very unique neurological and musculoskeletal symptoms.ey are frustrated because they have visited the top neurological clinics in the country only to be told that their tests are negative and that they cannot be given a denitive diagnosis.New, cutting edge research is shedding some light on these phantom neurological conditions. e term functional lesion applies to an area within the central nervous system where the cells are not functioning to their full capacity.When it is applied to one hemisphere of the brain we utilize the term hemisphericity, which essentially means that one side of the brain is under-functioning. Research tells us that the brain is later alized or specialized for certain functions.For example, the le hemisphere is more of a literal brain and is typically the dominant center for language.e right hemisphere is more of an abstract brain and is more specialized for social interaction and visuo-spatial knowledge. e cerebellum region of the brain is responsible for smooth and coordinated movement, balance, and for initiating thought.An area of the brain stem termed the midbrain is responsible largely for abating pain. If any of these regions become dysfunctional the symptoms will express themselves according to the aected area.Now, what does all of this mean to your health?Many neurological symptoms such as dizziness, pain, weakness, numbness-tingling, focusing diculties, involuntary movement, and twitching may be a manifestation of functional lesions in very precise regions of the brain. Aer an extensive neurological and or thopedic evaluation excluding organic causes of these symptoms such as a tumor or metabolic disease, a detailed plan of action will be created to address these dysfunctional regions of the brain utilizing brain-based therapies.e goal is to bring about stability in the specic area involved through the use of oxygen, nutrition, and most importantly activation.Modalities such as light, sound, smell, balance challenges, oculomotor exercises, vestibular exercises, postural exercises, hemi-eld computer applications, Dynavision D2, and chiropractic adjustments are utilized unilaterally (one sided) to address the functional lesion. e concepts of plasticity are at work as the targeted neurological rehabilitative exercises are making changes at the cell level promoting the sprouting of new synapses and thus increased speeds of communication within the nervous system. is translates into abatement of symptoms and stability. Dr. John Conde is a Board Certied Chiropractic Neurologist, one of only one thousand in the country. He holds diplomate status through the American Chiropractic Neurology Board. He provides specialized care for dicult cases of back neck pain, numbness-tingling, vertigo-dizziness balance disorders, bromyalgia, migraines, AD/HD, autism, and dyslexia.

Owner Ricky Marcellini and Executive Chef Joshua Miranda introduced their New American cuisine with a Latin air last year, featuring Sao Paolo-style wood-red pizzas; fresh seafood dishes like grilled octopus, shrimp ajillo and Faroe Island salmon; steaks cooked to order and more. eres also a mixologist-curated cra cocktail menu, including cra beer and wine, thatll make guests thirsty just by reading the descriptions. e cocktails feature trending ingredients like Acai liqueur, bourbon-soaked cherries, aquafaba (the cooking liquid from chickpeas), and mezcal. eres also a French Press Sangria that changes daily and a Mule of the Day. During Sunday brunch, enjoy $14 bottomless mimosas, bellinis, Bloody Marias (tequila) or Funky Buddha Floridian. e menu is full of Latin-inspired dishes, many of which can be shared tapas-style. One of the most popular items on the menu, and something you denitely have not seen before in Boca, making it even more enticing, is the Octopus Plantains: three fried green plantains, also known as tostones, are topped with sliced, marinated octopus and avocado salsa. e combination of avors is on point, and the tender yet crisp plantain is the perfect vehicle for its toppings. Be forewarned; octopus lovers may not want to share. For those who follow a gluten-free diet, Chef Joshua will happily prepare your dish by pan-frying the plantains instead of using the deep-fryer. Vegetarians are also taken care of at e Locale with a portobello mushroom burger that denitely provides a hearty entre option. Its topped with a tamarind glaze, manchego cheese, crispy kale, and aioli, and served on a brioche bun. e glaze adds a bright, bold avor, and the meaty texture of the mushroom gives it that burger-esque mouthfeel. e dish comes with fries, which you can enhance with true salt for an up-charge. Speaking of fries, if theres one appetizer to get and share with the table, its Los Chips, a trio of fried plantain chips, yucca fries and sweet potato fries, served with three sauces, roasted red bell pepper, queso fresco and chili. Sauces make everything better, dont they? Having a variety to try makes this even more enjoyable as every bite could be dierent than the last. e roasted red pepper sauce is made with cream cheese, so you can imagine its velvety smooth texture. e sauce trio oers a little bit of everything; sweet, savory and spicy. While it might seem a little on the heavy side to have so many fried ingredients in one dish, nothing was overly heavy or greasy in the least. Do yourself a favor and dont miss out on Los Chips. e Locale not only oers wood-red pizzas, but desserts as well, including the signature Nutella Escalinata, consisting of mascarpone, Nutella and roasted almond, and served with vanilla ice cream. Salivating yet? ought so. e Locale is located at 499 South Federal Highway. e restaurant opens for dinner daily at 4 p.m., and Happy Hour is every day from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and features half-priced cocktails, beers, and wines by the glass, as well as appetizers, tacos and wood-red pizzas ranging from $4-$11.

28 Estate planning for business ownersBy: John M. Campanola, Agent New York Life Insurance Company Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers All business owners can benet from some level of estate planning. Building protection into your business plan is one of the most important decisions you can make to safeguard your partners, your employees and your family. Here, we will discuss the four key components of estate planning to make sure you are well set up for success. e most fundamental estate planning tool is a will A properly executed will, gives clear direction to your executor about how to manage or distribute your assets when you pass away. en, a somewhat more complex component of an estate plan is a revocable trust this is a legal entity created to hold your assets while youre alive. Among the many benets is that your appointed trustee can take over management of your assets if youre incapacitated. A revocable trust streamlines the transfer of your assets by helping avoid potentially lengthy legal proceedings and costly court fees. A trust may also provide creditor protection for the beneciaries. Next are powers of attorney. Naming a healthcare power of attorney means your representative can make crucial medical decisions on your behalf should you be unable to, while a nancial power of attorney can pay your bills and manage your nances until you get back on your feet. Finally, a buy-sell agreement is a powerful estate planning tool. A buy-sell agreement is a way to help ensure a smooth transition of your business and ensure your familys nancial goals are met aer youre no longer around to take care of them. A buy-sell can also outline the terms of succession among the remaining partners, so that all terms are agreed upon in advance. Some basic estate planning may be done using self-guided online tools, but typically you should use a licensed and experienced attorney to help you dra and execute your plan. e best way to go about it is to make sure that your attorney, nancial advisor and insurance agent are working together on managing and planning your estate. is educational third-party article is provided as a cour tesy by John M.

Widowhood: The loss couples rarely plan forand shouldStaff report No one is ever emotionally ready for the death of a spouse. But you can prepare nancially for the decision-making, and possibly reduced income, you may someday face. As a continuation of its recent study Women and Financial Wellness: Beyond the Bottom Line, Merrill Lynch conducted research in partnership with Age Wave on widowhood. e study found that 78 percent of the 20 million US widows/widowers are women. at means that women are 3.5 times more likely to become widowed. We sat down with Rachel Barzilay, CAP, CFP, CRPC, Managing Director, Wealth Management Advisor and Senior Portfolio Manager with Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in Boca Raton, to discuss the study and its ndings. Why was this study conducted? Longevity needs to be a factor in everyones nancial planning, but far more so for women, who, on average, live ve years longer than men. By age 85, women outnumber men two to one and the majority (81 percent) of centenarians are women. is means that women are more likely to be alone and nancially self-reliant in their later years, perhaps having already spent some of their nest egg on a partners health or end of-life care costs. To better understand this profoundly difcultbut for most couples inevitable life event, Merrill Lynch partnered with Age Wave, a thought leader in the study of aging, to conduct research on widowhood and how this loss can aect the sur viving spouses life and nances. What would you say is the key takeaway from this study? Among the key ndings: Men and women who prepare for losing a spouse fare much better in terms of stress and grieving, but a full 53 percent of current widows and widowers say they had no plan in place for what to do if one of them died. e nancial burdens that come with the loss of a partner are immense and immediate. According to the Merrill Lynch/ Age Wave research, 60 percent of men and women who lose their spouses are immediately burdened by nancial expenses, including housing costs such as mortgages or rent. e fact that 50 per cent of those who lose a spouse also face a 50 percent reduction in income only compounds the problem. In addition to the nancial demands, critical paperwork and decision-making begin their steady creep right away. Most widows and widowers percentdescribe the loss of their spouse as the single most dicult and overwhelming life experience. And two-thirds say that they had so many things to do, they were not sure where to even start. ats when help from a knowledgeable professional can be invaluable. What are some tips for someone who needs to move forward alone? Dont be afraid to ask for help. e right team can be invaluable as you deal with the nancial and legal challenges of becoming the sole nancial decision maker. Having a trusted nancial advisor, attor ney and tax professional in your corner can make a big dierence as you move on alone. Reassess your retirement needs. Reviewing your retirement needs can help you make any necessary adjustments. Work with a nancial advisor to come up with a plan so you can move ahead with condence. Gather and le all necessary paperwork. Obtain several copies of the death cer ticate. Youll need them to share with nancial institutions and when ling for survivors Social Security and life insur ance. Be sure you have any other relevant documents as well, including birth and marriage certicates, wills, trusts and tax returns. Gaining nancial condence can help sustain you through a dicult time. Amid all the pain and diculty that losing a spouse brings, there is also healing. e Merrill Lynch/Age Wave research found that 77 percent of the widows and widowers they interviewed said they discovered courage they never knew they had.

31 Unity of Delray Beach gets new permanent senior ministerBy: Joanie Cox-Henry Contributing Writer e lengthy nationwide quest for a new leader for Unity of Delray Beach Church is nally over and a familiar face is back. Greg Barrette was Senior Minister of Unity of Delray Beach Church from 1989 to 1996 and he has now returned to this position and will also be CEO of Unity School. Im very excited to be back, said Bar rette, who was previouslysenior minister at Unity Northwest in Des Plains Illinois for the past nine years. People are spir itually hungry here and Unity of Delray Beachhas always been focused on spiritual growth and consciousness, which is the focus of my ministry. During the time Barrette was minister of Unity of Delray Beach Church, attendance rose from 275 to 425 and income soared from $850,000 to $2.5 million. Originally from California, Barrette has 38 years of leadership on his resume as minister and administrator for various Unity churches around the the nation. He was raised in Unity beliefs and for the past two years, he has been a single par ent to his 17 year old son and 21 year old daughter. Unitys philosophy is very much aligned with the power of positive thinking, Barrette said of the non-denominational church that welcomes guests of all faiths. Were rooted in Christianity and all about positive and practical spirituality and how it meets peoples day to day needs. While growing up in California, Barrette discovered the upliing music of the Grateful Dead. e band continues to have a powerful impact on his teachings. Im very into music, Barrette said. I play keyboards and I love classical music and all styles of music, but the Grateful Dead remains one of my all time favor ites. ere were only 300 people at the rst Dead concert I attended. When hes not teaching in support of Unitys spiritual curriculum, he enjoys taking nature hikes, biking and watching football. He cites Mary Kupferle, who led Unity of Delray Beach Church for 17 years, as one of his biggest inspirations. She was one of Unitys best-selling authors and my connection to her is something I will always cherish. We would meet once a month for lunch in Palm Beach. Her vibrancy and spiritual curiosity still inspire me. Even in her eighties, she was still going on retreats. I remember one time when she told me she was learning a new form of yogic meditation and how it was renewing her inner experience of God. I can still feel her energy and presence in this church. Barrette has continued his mediation journey with a new mentor, Jane Hart. She does all of her work online through the Center For Enlightenment, said Bar rette, who has been meditating since he was in high school. She teaches soul evolution and deep spiritual growth. Barrette will lead his rst service at the helm of Unity of Delray Beach Church Oct. 6. He will then be teaching most Tuesday nights oering classes such as Desire In e Soul, to further connect congregants on their own personal jour neys of spiritual awakening. Were here to provide tools for every stage of spiritual development, said Barrette, who mentioned Unity of Delray Beach Church is also strongly connected to Delrays expanding recovery community. UDBs Board President, Harvey L. Brown, Jr., likened Barrettes arrival to the church with that of the return of a celebrity. We couldnt be more pleased; Greg has always been a solid friend to us and hes above and beyond the benchmark of what a minister should be, Brown, Jr., stated in a press release. Its like if we were a high school basketball game and LeBron James came up and asked to play on our team.

32 Delray Shores Pharmacy continues family business in new downtown location Fill prescriptions, enjoy an old-fashioned fountain soda at Foxworth Fountain By: Marisa Herman Associate Editor Delray Shores Pharmacy is bringing back the nostalgia of enjoying a fountain drink at the counter while getting a prescription lled in its new downtown location. e 43-year-old pharmacy has been located in Delray Beach since late pharmacist om Dildine and his wife Carol opened in the original location on Lake Ida Road just west of Congress Avenue in 1975. Now, son Tj and his wife Rhyan are at the helm. Tj, a pharmacist, can be found behind the counter answering questions while Rhyan, a lawyer, can be found behind the kitchen counter creating new recipes with her mom, Kim Linthicum. e Delray Beach couple, who met in college at Emory University, have taken the pharmacy to a new location just about six months ago at 124 NE 5th Ave. just o of Atlantic Avenue. Named for their 5-year-old daughter, Flossy, the Flossy building houses the pharmacy, retail space where you can purchase vitamins, supplements, old fashioned candy and pet products like CBD treats to calm your furry friend down as well as the Foxworth Fountain, named for their toddler Foxworth. Grab a seat at the counter or a table and or der an egg-cream, homemade biscuits or even a CBD milkshake.e fountain serves breakfast and lunch Tuesday-Saturday. Recipes are created by Rhyan and her mom. ere are options for those following specialty diets like paleo or keto. Breakfast is served until 3 p.m. with lunch service beginning at 11 a.m. Specialties include homemade butter milk biscuits, organic thick cut oats, adult-ing beer oats and hand-stirred sodas with syr ups made in-house by Rhyan. Flavors include blueberry, ginger, raspberry, lemon, hibiscus, orange, strawberry and lime. Adding the soda fountain to the pharmacy was Rhyans idea. When the couple took over the business aer Tjs father died several years ago, they knew they needed to adapt to the constantly changing pharmacy industry. As health care laws change, reimbursements from insurance companies become lower and big box pharmacies expand, independent family owned pharmacies are becoming fewer and fewer, she said. So, they decided it was time to move east, closer to downtown, and add some new offerings to the pharmacy. at included featuring a soda fountain, something that was once a staple in local pharmacies. Soda was invented by pharmacists, she said. e history of the soda fountain is interesting. Back in the day, people visited the local phar macist when they were feeling ill. Pharmacists believed that bubbly spring water from mountains had healing elements, she said. ey began adding ginger to other natural remedies to the bubbly mountain water and when that became challenging, the soda fountain was created, she said. Pharmacists would create syrups that were healing with owers, plants and herbs, she said. Soda fountains then became a place to socialize, especially during the prohibition years. Now, she said she hopes the Foxworth Fountain becomes a place where people gather. I wanted to create a place where people could meet, she said. e couple purchased the land and spent three years building the Flossy Building. She joked it took so long that they had their son Foxworth and named the soda fountain aer him because there was no chance they were going to add another building on. Part of the soda fountain has a sitting area that can be used as a private room. Rhyan said she plans to hold lectures on community topics in the space.

35 REAL ESTATEHabitat to build on Delray lots INSIDE Palm Beach County Design options for Boca National El-Ad National Properties makes Boca its home, gears up to break ground on ALINA project By: Marisa Herman Associate Editor As developers El-Ad National Properties embark on launching ALINA Residences in Boca Raton, the team decided to move its oces to the same city. Boca is not unchartered-territory for the company. El-Ad cur rently has ve rental communities in Boca Raton including Camino Real, Tuscany Pointe, Somerset Place, Savannah Place and Mizner on the Green, which will transform into ALINA. It has been doing business in Boca since 2005. To build a residential community and to do right, you need to be in the city you are building, El-AdNational PropertiesExecutive Director of DevelopmentNoam Ziv said. e company moved into the downtown Bank of America building located at 150 East Palmetto Park Road. Ziv said the move allows team members to walk to the site of ALINA, which will soon turn the existing townhouses into high-end, luxury condos, and enjoy the downtown Boca Raton amenities like the beach, Mizner Park and restaurants. e move ocially took place in March. We couldnt be happier here, he said. We wanted to be part of the community. In addition to moving their oces to the city, the group, which is under the parent company of Elad Group, has been building partnerships with local organizations. It has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County and oered to donate any items from the Mizner on the Green rental units that can be repurposed. Items will include cabinets, refrigerators, dishwashers, dryers, lighting xtures, air conditioning handlers garage doors and other items that can either be sold in the nonprots ReStores or used in Habitat homes. It would be a shame to have to trash valuable items, Ziv said. e initiative is environmentally friendly as items will be recycled to those in need rather than thrown in a landll, he said. Ziv said the goal is to break ground on ALINA by the end of the year with the rst residence completed by the end of 2020. I think its a game changer for downtown Boca, he said. ALINA replaces Mizner on the Green. e project will launch with a nine-building with 121 residences. Of those 102 will be fully nished and 12 will be penthouses. Units will range from one bedrooms to four bedrooms and total under 1,400-squarefeet to 4,800-square feet. Total, the project can feature as many as 384 units in three towers. Many of the units will have dens and terraces that overlook the Boca Raton Resort and Clubs golf course. e property will offer a collection of seven villas that open up to lanais and private gardens. All residences will have walk-in closets, a selection of wood and porcelain nishes and up to 11-foot ceilings. Units will have European-style gourmet kitchens with Miele appliances, natural stone countertops, kitchen island, wine cooler and Franke xtures. Sea-inspired master bathrooms will feature rain showers, stand-alone soaking tubs and dual vanities. e project will have smart building technology, 24-hour security, valet parking and an on-site concierge. Guests and residents will be greeted in the lobby with a front desk, sitting area, mail room and coee and juice bar. anks to a partnership with the Boca Raton Museum of Art, residents will enjoy art from the museums lending program. e entire property will span more than eight acres. e project will oer more than 32,000-square-feet of private, outdoor amenities including a rooop pool deck with lounges and cabanas. Indoors there will be a club room, gym, bicycle storage, yoga studio, his and her spa with dry sauna, steam room, treatment rooms and indoor and outdoor relaxation rooms. Landscape architect Paul Weinberg and his team are creating landscapes that will showcase a meditation and sculpture gar den, outdoor yoga space and a dog park that is surrounded by native greenery. Open to the public, Ziv said the property will feature wide sidewalks and sculptures for people to enjoy as they walk downtown.

A portion of each team real estate transaction will be donated to the charity. Inspiration Charity is non-prot organization that is dedicated to helping those in need of hope and support as they navigate the ght against breast cancer. Raising funds for research is certainly a critical part of the battle against nding a cure for cancer, but while we work on the cure, we need to address the process and all that goes along with it, said Susan Uncapher, Founder of Inspiration Charity. As a breast cancer survivor, I know rst-hand how hard it is to nancially tackle the costs involved with this disease, and as a result, will raise funds to help those aected by breast cancer in hopes of making the journey a little less scary together. According to Jessica Rosato, founder of Jet Coast Homes along with Eva Blow and eresa Melocco, Facing breast cancer is emotionally draining and stressful. Not only are you dealing with the shock of nding out that you have cancer and the reality that your life is about to change, but you are also dealing with everyday life and responsibilities that existed before.Dealing with additional stressors from insurance companies as you come face-to-face with upfront deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses can be devastating.At Inspiration Charity, it is their mission is to help nancially in the early stages of diagnosis so that the patient can get the treatment they deserve without delay. ere will be a launch party for Inspiration Charity on Sept. 30 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Tim Finnegans Irish Pub in Delray Beach.

New FAU market update says local residential real estate well above long-term pricing trends Residential real estate markets in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach are all well above their long-term pricing trends, by 14 to 16 percent, according to a new mar ket update produced by faculty in the Flor ida Atlantic University College of Business. e Southeast Florida Residential Real Estate Market update indicates that Miami is 16.28 percent above its long-term trend, while Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach are 14.33 percent and 15.57 percent above their long-term trends, respectively. e percentage change in prices are calculated from repeat sales indices for all transactions in the three metro areas. Author of the market update, Ken Johnson, Ph.D., a real estate economist and professor at FAUs College of Business said housing prices, however, are not approaching the dangerous 2007 levels that preceded the last crash of local real estate markets. In 2007, Miami was 65.43 percent above its longterm trend, while Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach came in at 63.36 percent and 58.29 percent, respectively. In the last year, all three metro areas have experienced annualized property price increases of 8.26 percent in Miami, 10.03 per cent in Fort Lauderdale and 8.04 percent in West Palm Beach. A slowing in annualized price increases for the three metros should mitigate the likelihood of another market crash. Residential real estate cycles are relatively new, making future predictions of these phenomena rather dicult, Johnson said. However, it seems reasonable to conclude that if property prices start to slow in the near term then southeast Florida property markets should be in for a bumpy landing, as opposed to the market crash that we experienced between 2008 and 2012. On the other hand, if double-digit percentage property price increases continue much longer, then local markets could once again experience a signicant residential market crash.

37 Habitat for Humanity provides more than just affordable housing opportunities By: Marisa Herman Associate Editor Delray Beach-based Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County will be building in Delray again thanks to a partnership with the citys Community Redevelopment Agency. Aer two years, Habitat is returning to the city it is based in to build on ve lots in e Set neighborhood. e agency board approved a donation of lots to Habitat to build its zero interest mortgage homes on the land in January. e project is called Lots of Humanity. We thank the Delray Beach CRA for making the American dream of home ownership a reality for ve new families, Habitat of South Palm Beach County president and CEO Randy Nobles said. Now, the nonprot is gearing up to break ground on the aordable homes that provide a hand-up, not a hand-out to those who are seeking homeownership. e rst home will be built by the CEO Build this month. More than 70 business leaders will work on the House that CEOs Built. e anticipated completion date for the home is spring time. Several other houses will also begin construction start dates. Construction on one of the lots will be a Blitz Build meaning it will be completed in just a few weeks with help from Altman Companies. is aliate has built 52 homes in Delray. e last one was completed in Nov. 2016. is aliate of Habitat serves Boca, Delray and Boynton. Habitat of South Palm Beach County vice president and chief development ocer Kari Oeltjen said this aliate was founded by IBMers who saw a need for aordable housing. e rst home they built was located in Pearl City in Boca. e original Habitat homeowners still reside there, she said. Nobles said to qualify to be a Habitat homeowner is a process that can take anywhere from a year to 18 months. Recently, the nonprot hosted an informational meeting for 250 people. at number will be narrowed down to 12 families. at is the type of demand there is, he said. ose who make it into consideration then must qualify for a mortgage, be considered low income households, have no bankruptcies in the last few years, have credit and pass a background check. Each adult individual selected to be a Habitat homeowner must volunteer 250 hours of sweat equity building Habitat homes. ey must also complete nancial literacy courses. Our goal is to break a cycle, Nobles said. We see the upside with the kids. In looking for potential homeowners, Nobles said the nonprot looks for people who want to be involved in bettering their neighborhood through involvement and pride in their home and community. He said homeownership promotes childrens success in graduating from high school and college. Building aordable homes is not the only way the nonprot is making an impact in the communities it serves. e nonprot also has other programs that help enhance the overall image of a neighborhood or community. ey hold neighborhood revitalizations where they will paint a home with the Brush for Kindness program. Homeowners are asked to help pay $200 for the fresh coat. Recipients do not have to live in a Habitat home. For more critical repairs Habitat will help with replacement of items like a roof or irrigation system. Homeowners are asked to pay 10 per cent of the cost, which can be nanced. is year, Habitat worked on revitalizations in Delray called Rock the Block. Sponsors helped families that qualify clean up their homes by raising money and donating their time. A new initiative Aging in Place will help seniors who are staying in their homes make changes to their home for things like a wheelchair. Habitat just received a grant from AARP to help assess 10 homes for families with seniors who are aging in place.

38 Boca facing second Bert Harris Act suit after denial of The Concierge project By: Marisa Herman Associate Editor Boca Raton resident and landowner Robert Buehl is planning to sue the city of Boca aer the Community Redevelopment Agency board rejected proposed plans for e Concierge, a downtown senior living facility. Buehl isnt the only one suing the city when it comes to the project. Developers Group P6 have led a separate legal argument in Palm Beach County Circuit Court appealing the decision. Buehls company Meritage Plaza owns the land, which was to be developed by Group P6. e legal action comes aer the Boca CRA, voted 3-1 to deny e Concierge project. Councilman Jeremy Rodgers cast the sole dissenting vote, supporting the plans. e project proposed adding a $75 million, 10-story building at 22 S.E. 6th St., east of Dixie Highway for seniors. It calls for 110 units with 129 beds ranging in size from 550 square feet to about 1,300-square-feet. e building would have its own restaurants, salon, tness area, theater, cafe, lounge and rooop pool. Boca ocials expressed concerns over parking and the amount of emergency phone calls the facility would generate. But for Buehl, the bigger issue was some of the comments ocials made about the senior population who would live in the project. He said comments by some ocials violated the Fair Housing Act and were ageist. Councilwoman Andrea ORourke said the project didnt meet the vision for downtown Boca because the residents wouldnt contribute to the areas vibrancy. e statements made by elected ocials regarding our citys elderly residents were absolutely discriminatory and shameful, Buehl said. ey acted arbitrarily and capriciously in denying the plans for this project under the guidelines for the Community Redevelopment Agency.e council members should be embarrassed of their remarks against these important and vital members of our community. e city will have 150 days to respond to the Bert Harris suit. e other action led by the developers is working its way through the court system.

Just as we need an annual health physical to stay in good health, we need a seasonal maintenance plan to keep our home well maintained and to protect our investment. Most of the home maintenance items can be taken care of by yourself, but its always better to be safe and call for assistance if a project is beyond your abilities. Autumn: Inspect roong for missing, loose, or damaged tiles and leaks. Power-wash windows, siding, and walkways. Remove leaves and debris from gutters and downspouts. Replace the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Clean window and door screens. Vacuum lint from dryer vent. Inspect exterior door hardware; x squeaky handles and loose locks. Check water heater for leaks. Check Temperature Pressure Release valve on hot water heater and drain the tank. Check that indoor and outdoor air vents are not blocked. Winter: Power-wash windowsand siding. Inspect sink, shower, and bath caulking for deterioration. Repair or replace caulking around windows, doors, and mechanicals. Have air-conditioning system serviced. Drain or ush water heater. Fertilize your lawn unless your HOA has taken care of this. Spring: Test all GFI outlets in bathroom, kitchen, and outside receptacles. Lubricate garage-door opener and chain, garage door, and all door hinges. Remove lint from inside and outside washer hoses and dryer vents. Clean refrigerator and freezer coils and empty and clean drip trays. Check dishwasher for leaks. Replace interior and exterior faucet and showerhead washers if needed. Seal tile grout. Prune trees and shrubs, if the HOA is not doing this. Summer: Prepare for hurricane season (June to October). Make sure no plants or bushes are growing up against the house. Trim all trees away from the roof if the HOA does not do this. Check all landscaping to ensure drainage goes away from the house. Check all caulking around sinks, toilets, tubs, showers. Clean tracks of windows and sliding glass door before applying silicone spray lubricant. Inspect foundation for possible cracks. Check all wood trim around the roof and outside doors. On a Monthly schedule: Exchange the A/C lter. Clean the garbage disposal by grinding ice cubes, then ushing with hot water and baking soda. Clean or replace range hood lter. Clean dryer lint. Professional home inspectors say: Amer icans take better care of their automobiles than their homes. A well maintained home will bring you maximum Dollars when you are ready to sell, but it also will bring you less repair surprises because you will be aware and can get it xed before hand.

42 Price Fazio presents options for Boca National designBy: Diane Emeott Korzen Contributing Writer Boca National will feature 27 holes. How those holes are congured is what is still up for debate. At the second of three public meetings, golf course architect Tommy Fazio presented three options for the design of the new Boca National Golf Club and a recommendation. e recommended course design has 27 holes with an 18-hole golf course, plus a nine hole short course and a driving range. Other options included a three, full-size, nine hole course and another conguring of an 18-hole course and one short course with nine holes. All three options are for a 27-hole course, but two have a short nine hole course. It makes the most sense for what the goals are for the District, and appeals to a wider audience, VP of Nick Price Golf Course Design Wayne Branthwaite said of the recommended design. All the amenities are close to the clubhouse: the nine holes, the 18 holes, and the hotel. e driving range is also close to the clubhouse. is is the option that meets all the criteria. Fazio spoke of constraints at the Boca National site that dont exist at Osprey Point, a popular golf course with similar acreage located at 12551 Glades Road. Osprey Point has 27 holes spread into three 9-holes. e physical boundaries of the [Boca Teeca residential] buildings force us into a box [at Boca National], said Fazio. And, we need a buer zone with a safety zone around it. Fazio then gave the audience a quick 101 on golf course design, describing the three dierent land parcels that make up the Boca National property. An east parcel of 72 acres; a northwest parcel of 80 acres (the largest parcel, which Fazio said would make sense to contain the new clubhouse); and a southwest parcel of 62 acres (the site of the old maintenance facility and clubhouse). As of Aug. 20, the golf course project was still in the permitting process regarding demolition of the old Ocean Breeze buildings, according to Assistant Director of the Beach & Park District Briann Harms. Executive Director of the Greater Boca Raton Beach & Park District Arthur Koski said the architects are now working with two consultants: the National Golf Foundation (NGF) and C.B. Richard Ellis. NGF will provide an update on market and nancial analysis, and C.B. will provide information on demographics and the economic viability of a hotel, Koski said. e last public meeting took place on Sept. 17. Ask an expert: Your HOA, condo questions By: Avi S. Tryson, Esq. Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers Q: What is the legality of video and/or audio recording of board meetings by members of a homeowners association (HOA)? e members in my community have oered to record the meetings to share with other members unable to attend, but the board members have refused to allow the board meetings to be recorded, and they have stated its not required by law.Many members are seasonal residents and have no way of knowing details of any meetings. e meeting notes are basic and lack any detail and the notes do not get published until aer the next meeting when they are approved. T.G., Boca Raton A: Florida law is clear that owners in an HOA have the right to record meetings of the board or meetings of the members.Specically, Florida Statutes, Section 720.306(10) provides that Any parcel owner may tape record or videotape meetings of the board of directors and meetings of the members.e board of directors of the association may adopt reasonable rules governing the taping of meetings of the board and the membership.Reasonable rules have been deemed to include (a) prohibiting devices that produce distracting sound or light emissions; (b) requiring the device be positioned in advance of the commencement of the meeting; (c) prohibiting moving about the room in order to facilitate recording; and (d) requiring advance notice of an intent to record. One big caveat is that the above rules can only be enforced if they were adopted by written rule at a board meeting with at least 48 hours posted notice.erefore, if your board waits until the middle of a contentious meeting to try to pass such a rule, it would be too late. Please note that the board is not required to audio record or video record its meetings.Many associations will record meetings to ensure the minutes are accurate, and then discard the recording.I generally advise against keeping recordings because the recording normally cant be used in court to support your position, so the real result of keeping a recording is to highlight any errors or misstatements.e board should take extra care to ensure the written minutes reect the actions at the meeting.

45 Pedicabs not rolling onto Atlantic Avenue, trolly service to end as well as Downtowner service By: Marisa Herman Associate Editor e third time was not the charm for Delray resident Patrick Halliday who wants to bring his pedicab service to downtown Delray. Commissioners did not approve bringing a pedicab pilot program downtown in a 2-2 vote. With Commissioner Bill Bathurst absent from the meeting last month, a 2-2 vote is a fail. Mayor Shelly Petrolia and Commissioner Ryan Boylston supported the program but Commissioner Adam Frankel and Shirley Johnson were against the proposal. I wasnt really for it until I actually rode it, Petrolia said. I wouldnt mind attempting or trying it in certain areas. But half of the commission wasnt swayed by Hallidays pitch. He said he runs his pedicab service successfully in downtown Boca. Why is this not allowed in Delray? he asked commissioners. Previous commissions heard his idea in 2015 and 2017. It was voted down both times. I dont know any place in Boca that is similar to Atlantic Avenue, Johnson said. I am not really in favor of the pedicabs. Frankel agreed and said he didnt think the benets outweighed the concerns expressed by the police department. e police department said pedicabs were permitted downtown in 1998 and drivers oen broke driving laws. Policing the pedicabs would be low on the departments priority list, they told commissioners. But with the Community Redevelopment Agency board voting to defund the trolley program as of Oct. 1 and the Downtowner golf cart service announcing its plans to leave the city by Oct. 1, Boylston the pedicab proposal came at a good time. News of the Downtowner leaving Delray and the Community Redevelopment Agency board defunding the trolley service occurred nearly backto-back. e popular tip-only ride ser vice the Downtowner, which launched in Delray in 2012, will no longer be giving rides in Delray as of Oct. 1. In a long letter to its customers, co-founder Stephen Mur ray outlined the reasons why the company is leaving Delray. Mainly, the system the company uses in Delray to operate is the only city utilizing that model. e Downtowner 1.0 system is a model that is solely funded on ad revenue. Advertisers pay for the golf carts that feature their business information on it. Murrays letter states that it is an inconsistent way to try to run a public transit system. Delray did issue a request for proposal for companies with smart transit options to respond to. Murray said the city did not award the Downtowner with a contract. So, he said the team decided to make a business decision to pull out of Delray. Commissioners were bombarded with pleas to the keep the Downtowner operating. But the company is private and has made the decision to cease operations on its own. Not long aer the Downtowner news, the CRA board voted not to fund the downtown trolley service. e charge to end the trolley service was led by Commissioner Frankel. e city will re-issue a request for proposal for downtown transportation services. e previous one was awarded to the trolley service by sta. Commissioners bashed sta for not bringing the topic to them for a decision. City Manager Mark Lauzier said he will prepare a new RFP.

Its hard to know when we all started saying these words. Was it in the 90s? Maybe in the 80s? At the Delray Beach Historical Society, we like to look back through the archives and glean a thing or two about the city weve built, the city weve lost, and time and time again, the city weve mourned. We know, for example, our citizens mourned Delray in the 1960s when a tsunami of development ooded the state of Florida. at was the era when several townspeople, concerned about the vanishing history of their community, banded together to form the Delray Beach Historical Society. We also know that in the 1920s, an early settler named Anna Hofman wrote mournfully of the old, quiet days when she could still hear the birds on her farm in Pineapple Grove. [O]ur world is changing here in Delray. We are no longer the village by the canal. Now we are called the City of Destiny. its sad to see the land change and lose its old identity. e whippoorwills no longer call at twilight, and the blue heron no longer lis her wings. Surely the American Indians mourned the past more painfully than any settlers. As they watched their lives and their land disappear, they must have thought not only that things were changing but that things were, quite simply, done. Exploring our archive, the past speaks up with an important reminder: todays imperfect present may soon be remembered as the perfect past. e condominiums and cookie-cutter homes could very well become the architectural treasures of tomorrow.

With the number and complexity of questions being placed before our residents in November, it will be incumbent on voters to have their decisions made before arriving at the local precinct to cast a ballot. If ever there was a strong argument for opting to Vote by Mail, this is it. Long lines and delays can be anticipated as those residents who are rst confronted with the ballot questions are forced to read, digest and decide how to vote. Eight questions were placed on the ballot as a result of the Constitutional Revision Commission, a 37-member body established once every 20 years for the purpose of reviewing Floridas Constitution and proposing changes for voter consideration. e CRC met last year, identifying issues, performing research and recommending possible changes to the Constitution. Amendments approved by the CRC are placed directly on the ballot where, as with all other ballot questions, 60 percent of the vote is required for each amendment to be approved. e CRC, unlike the legislature and citizens seeking to place a question on the ballot, is empowered to combine approved revisions. is year, the Commission opted to distill its recommended constitutional revisions into eight proposals. In some cases, voters will be faced with revisions where they support only part. Approval of a proposed revision will enact all matters contained therein. us voter will be le balancing the issues contained within the proposals to determine whether to approve or reject the proposal. To make matters more complicated, many of the CRC proposals have been the subject of court challenges with the claim that they voters were not oered language that clearly set out the consequences of approval. Several were tossed by the Court only to be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court. e following is a summary of the proposals that are, as of this writing, due to be presented to voters. ings may change between now and the election and it is unknown if the numbering of the questions will be revised as questions are stricken. To review the full language of the CRC proposals, go to: http://crc.gov/PublishedContent/ADMINISTRATIVEPUBLICATIONS/CRCFinalReport.pdf QUESTION 1: (Placed on ballot by legislature) If approved, this proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution will increase the Homestead Property Tax Exemption by exempting the assessed valuation of homestead property greater than $100,000 and up to $125,000 for all levies, except school districts and will take eect January 1, 2019. According to an analysis by the League of Women Voters of Florida (which, along with the Florida Policy Institute; Florida League of Cities; Progress Florida; Florida Education Association; and Florida Association of Counties oppose the amendment), the new provision would: Allow homeowners to deduct up to another $25,000 from the taxable value of a home worth more than $100,000, starting on Jan. 1, 2019. Exclude local school taxes from the new exemption; Cost Floridas cities, counties and other taxing authorities an estimated $687.5 million annually, (over Boys in Delray Beach.

47 $27 million in Palm Beach County); and Potentially result in reduced services and/ or higher local rates to make up for revenue losses. QUESTION 2: (Placed on the ballot by legislature) is is a companion to Question 1 dealing with non-Homestead real property. is is a proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution would permanently retain a limit on property tax assessment increases, except for school district taxes, at no greater than 10 percent each year. e amendment would remove the scheduled repeal in 2019. According to an analysis by the League of Women Voters of Florida (which, along with the Florida Education Association, oppose the amendment), the new provision would: Make permanent the 10 percent limit on increases in tax value for non-homestead property; and Continue to deny local governments (excluding school districts) tax revenue they would otherwise collect from rising proper ty values. QUESTION 3: (Citizen Initiative) If approved, Question 3 will only permit the approval of new casino gambling through a citizen-initiative (barring the Legislature from making those gambling decisions and bar a future CRC from addressing it as well). According to an analysis by the League of Women Voters of Florida (which along with No Casinos, Inc. and Disney support the approval of this Question): It precludes constitutional approval of casinos through other means, including amendments oered by the Legislature or by the CRC; It continues to allow the Legislature to approve other types of non-casino gambling, such as poker rooms, bingo, lotteries and fantasy sports; It allows the Legislature to oversee, regulate and tax any casino-type gambling that voters approve through a constitutional amendment; and It would have no aect on the states ability to negotiate casino agreements with Native-American QUESTION 4: (Citizen Initiative) Known as the Voter Restoration Amendment, if approved, the Florida Constitution would be amended so most ex-felons who completed their full sentences (including paying nes, paying restitution, doing their prison time and completing parole or probation) would be granted the right to vote. It would not grant any other rights to ex-felons (e.g., the ability to sit on a jury, hold public oce or possess a rearm). People convicted of felonies, excluding those convicted of murder or felony sex crimes, would be eligibility to vote aer completing all the terms of their sentence. Studies have shown that recidivism rates drop about 30 per cent when a person has their voting rights restored. With a lower recidivism rate, costs of incarceration go down, employment goes up translating into a positive impact on the Florida economy of over $350 million per year. e amendment is supported by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition; Floridians for a Fair Democracy; American Civil Liberties Union; League of Women Voters of Florida; Progress Florida; Florida Policy Institute; Florida Education Association; and Florida National Organization for Women. It is opposed by Floridians for a Sensible Voting Rights Policy. QUESTION 5: (Placed on ballot by legislature) is amendment to the Florida Constitution will, if approved, require all increases in taxes or fees, or the creation of any new taxes or fees pass both chambers of the Legislature by a two-thirds vote. Currently, nearly every bill related to taxes or fees only requires a simple majority on the House and Senate to pass. e amendment would expand supermajority requirements to include taxes on sales, gasoline, alcohol and unemployment, as well as fees for shing, drivers licenses and concealed rearms licenses, to name a few. e amendment would require any tax or fee increase to be in a separate bill. e amendment would not place any limits on tax or fee increases by local governments, such as cities and school boards. Florida Tax Watch and the Florida Chamber of Commerce support Question 5. e League of Women Voters of Florida; Florida Policy Institute; Progress Florida; and Florida Education Association opposes it. QUESTION 6 / CRC Revision 1: is is the rst of a series of proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution initiated by the CRC. It was struck from the ballot due to judicial challenges but the Supreme Court of Florida has restored it to the ballot. If approved, the revision will revise and create additional rights for crime victims and increase the age aer which a justice or judge may no longer serve in a judicial oce; and require a state court or an ocer hearing an administrative action to interpret a state statute or rule de novo in litigation between an administrative agency and a private party. is revision would: Enshrine in the state Constitution an array of victims rights, many of which are currently in state law; Place new time limits on ling appeals; Require that victims receive some type of written notication of their rights; Eliminate an existing constitutional provision that ensures victims rights dont infringe on the rights of accused criminals; Raise the mandatory retirement age for Supreme Court justices and judges from 70 to 75; and Prohibit courts and judges from deferring to an administrative agencys interpretation of state laws or rules when deciding cases. While 37 Florida sheris and Florida Smart Justice support this proposal, the Florida Public Defender Association; ACLU of Florida; League of Women Voters of Flor ida and the Florida Education Association oppose it.
