Friday, Nov. 10th (11 am 10 pm) Saturday, Nov. 11th (11 am 8 pm) By Suzanna Mahler The Pineapple Contributing Writer Theres no business like an old business and nobody knows that better than loyal local customers of the Mercer Wenzel department store, on the corner of Northeast Fourth and Atlantic Avenues. The beloved business, carrying everything from jewelry and apparel to home goods and toys, has been owner Bruce Wenzels baby, since the fties. And this month, the 85-yearold will close his doors, so that he can nally retire. Having been here for more than 50 years makes it all bittersweet, he said. In retirement, I think I will be taking some trips; Ive wanted to travel to many places and soon I will have the opportunity, and the time, to do so. The story of this popular beach town business dates back to the 1920s, when the Zuckerman family opened and ran the store for more than two decades. They decided to sell it when their son, who planned to take it over for his parents, had died. Wenzel was introduced to, and fostered a business relationship with, the Zuckermans back when he worked as a salesman (the Zuckerman store was his account). The family discussed and struck a deal with Wenzel to buy the store. Wenzel and his former business partner, S.L. Mercer, bought the property in 1958. Mercer managed the store (formally called Mercers), while Wenzel continued to work in sales. In the 1970s Wenzel bought out Mercers share of the business and the name changed Continued on page 7First Annual Wine & Seafood Festival Historic department store saying goodbye MERCER WENZELRepublican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov.

It seemed like the perfect opportunity to celebrate Vince Cannings 60th year of business on Atlantic Avenue, and support a community that has supported our business all these years. Partnering with the Achievement Centers for Children & Families felt like a natural t, and I know because of our gracious sponsors and spirited community, this event will be a huge success!

The news of the store closing its doors has many customers commenting on the decades of fond memories theyve made happen while walking through the doors of Mercer Wenzels, said Wenzels daughter Chris. Connie Wichman, who has worked as a manager at Mercer Wenzel since 1971, credits her customers and employees for contributing to the success of the business. Our loyal customers are the best; the store would not have survived this long without them, she said. Our staff also is truly fantastic at what they do. We were lucky to have worked with such wonderful, talented people all of these years. But even new residents who have just started to witness all that our Village by the Sea has to offer, have noticed just why Mercer Wenzel will be missed by so many loyal locals, even after one visit. Wenzel knows just what his customers need, which is completely unheard of in todays world, said Margaret Kelly, new to Delray Beach.

We were all disappointed when Nathanael moved, but equally enthused about finding Sophia. She is just perfect for the show and she has no fear asking the tough questions, said Food Beat Founder and President, Joe Stout. This is something I have been preparing for, said the budding young star. When I was three years old I had one of those plastic kiddy kitchens, where I would make meals and interview imaginary was my very own pretend cooking show! Pretend is now officially over as the nine-year-old cooking phenom, Sophia, finds herself conducting interviews with restaurant owners, staff, patrons, and the people that make it happen in the kitchen. The Kulinary Kidd is one of the original programs, produced by The Food Beat, to give people an insiders look at Delray Beach restaurants, clubs, bakeries, coffee houses, and catering companies. Each program showcases the featured business, their people, their specialties, and what makes them unique. What makes the shows different, is that each one is presented from a different perspective. The Kulinary Kidd is what a restaurant is all about from a kids view, and why children and families should consider it. Kids have a big impact on the family buying decision when it comes to food, and The Kulinary Kidd provides the entire family with a clear picture of what to expect. Like all Food Beat programs, the show leans heavily towards off-center while still delivering the details consumers cant find anywhere else. Interviews with owners, management, staff, chefs...even customers, and behind the scenes, looks tell the story of what makes the business so special. I have seen some very perplexed looks on the faces of owners when the Kidd fires off one of her bizarre questions, or when we ask them all to join her in the dance scene that closes out each episode, Stout added. But once they start having as much fun as our crew, they get into it and have a great time. The new Kulinary Kidd episode features La Fiesta Cafe, located on South Federal Highway, just south of Linton Blvd. I really had a great time lming at La Fiesta, Sophia said. Everyone was so nice to me and the food was incredible. My mom and I would have never known it was there, but thanks to The Food Beat, we found a great new place to eat, with really nice people that own it. We will be going back! The new Kulinary Kidd episode, past/ future episodes, and the other Food Beat Original Programs can be seen any time at The Food Beat is a platform that blends creativity, high definition video, and human interest stories, in a fun, and generally whimsical, manner. Viewers enjoy visually pleasing, indepth looks at local restaurants, bars, bakeries, caterers, and coffee houses. Advertisers enjoy a comprehensive marketing vehicle that incorporates online searches, couponing, social media, SEO benefits. and HD Video. The Food introduces Sophia Lieuw-Kie-SongFIRST ASSIGNMENTSophia Lieuw-Kie-Song is The Food Beats Kulinary Kidd. Sophia visits Delray Beach restaurants and shares their virtues through the eyes and tastes buds of kid. A self proclaimed foodie, Sophia visits with the establishments owners, chefs, staff, and customers, to provide viewers with an insiders look at local restaurants. Her rst assignment was La Fiesta Cafe, a hidden gem on South Federal Highway where the family owned operation is all about fresh, and made-to-order, Mexican specialties. My Mission as the Kulinary Kidd is to show that healthy, and tasty, choices for kids are available at Delray restaurants, and that eating out with our parents is fun, plus many times, we get to decide where we go. I recently visited La Fiesta, owned by Marco and George. They were very warm and friendly. What I enjoyed most about La Fiesta is cooking with Chef Monica. She is awesome! She also is an expert in Mexican cooking (even the history of Mexican dishes). I learned a lot. I think La Fiestas dishes are healthy and delicious because they are very fresh. I cant wait for other kids to try them. Then can make their own fajitas and experience authentic Mexican dining in a cool atmosphere. La Fiesta is also a great place to host a birthday as the entire restaurant...even other customers join in on the fun. I am very happy with my visit to La Fiesta. It was fun to learn that kids can eat delicious Mexican dishes and have their veggies too. (the dessert was incredible too!) I want kids to know that in many restaurants there is something great for them on the menu and their parents dont have to worry if there is not a kids menu. In the future, I would like the Kulinary Kidd to inspire kids to try new dishes with their parents. I would also like the chance to cook with other kids and show how we can make simple meals and snacks fun.

PAGE 12 The Delray Beach Pineapple The body is an amazing source of intelligence. It is always there for you, pumping blood, never skipping a heartbeat, digesting whatever food you put in it, and maintaining homeostasis. Is this reliable, intelligent bio-computer making a mistake by craving ice cream, or a hamburger, or chocolate? Are cravings due to lack of will-power or discipline? Id like to suggest that cravings are not a problem. They are critical pieces of information that tell you what your body needs. The important thing is to understand why you crave what you crave. Perhaps your diet is too restrictive, or devoid of essential nutrients. Perhaps you are living a lifestyle that is too boring or stressful. Your body tries to correct the imbalance by sending you a message: a craving. A craving for something sweet could mean you need more protein, more exercise, more water or something more personal in your life. The key to stopping the sugar craving is to understand, and deliver, what your body really needs. No book or theory can tell you what to eat. Only awareness of your body, and its needs, can tell you. Of all the relationships in our lives, the one with our body is the most essential. It takes communication, love, and time, to cultivate a relationship with your body. As you learn to decipher, and respond to your bodys cravings, you will create an understanding of health and balance. The next time you have a craving, treat it as a message from your body, instead of a weakness. Try these tips to respond to your body: minutes to eat. For example, if you crave sweets, try eating more fruit, and sweet, or root vegetables. there something you need to express, or is something being repressed? What happened in your life just before you had this craving? enjoy it, taste it, savor it; notice its effect. Then you will become more aware, and free, to decide if you really want it next time. Healthy Alternatives: Natural Sweeteners Who among us doesnt love sweets? The sweet avor releases serotonin in our brains, the chemical responsible for our sense of well-being and contentment. But when it comes to sweeteners, not all are created equal. There are side effects, and health risks, from rened sweeteners like white table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, and from articial sweeteners, like NutraSweet, saccharin, and Splenda. Since rened sweeteners have been stripped of vitamins, minerals and ber, they can spike blood sugar, which can often lead to cravings, and mood and energy uctuations. Instead, using naturally, and minimally processed, sweeteners can reduce cravings for sugary things. Here are a few natural sweeteners to substitute in drinks, food, and baking. Since they are all approximately 1.5 times sweeter than rened sugar, you can use less. You can nd them in most supermarkets, or natural food stores. When replacing sugar with liquid sweeteners in a recipe, reduce the amounts of other liquids. Raw Honey Everyone seems to love honey, one of the oldest, natural sweeteners on the market. Honey will have a different avor, depending on the plant source. Some are very dark and intensely avored. Wherever possible, choose raw honey, as it is unrened, and contains small amounts of enzymes, minerals, and vitamins. Agave Nectar Agave is made through the extraction, and purication, of the juice of the agave cactus. It does not stimulate insulin secretion as other sugars do, so it does not create a sugar rush. It has a light and mild avor. Maple Syrup Maple syrup is the concentrated extract of the sap of maple trees. It adds a rich, deep avor to foods and drinks. Make sure to look for 100% pure maple syrup, not mapleavored corn syrup. For more information, or to learn how to deconstruct your cravings, visit or call 561-414-4441.Julia C.

She states that The loving and nancial support that I received from South Florida and from around the world was as massive as the mudslide. I cannot nd strong enough words to express my gratitude. Mother Earth took my family and gave me back a larger family of love. I am so thankful for all the fundraising and advertising gifts that allowed my business to stay aoat and pay my bills through this terrible time of mourning and loss. I hope that this note of gratitude will be read by hundreds of people that I was unable to reach by email or snail mail. My family and I used to state that our love was so intense that there were never any words to describe it and this is how I feel about the gifts I have received through this tragedy. There are no words that can express how deeply grateful I am for all the gifts I have received. Dr. Lynn Migdal is back at work in Delray Beach and wants everyone to know that she is once again available to serve your natural health care needs. She states Thank God I have a mission and passion in life. Helping and serving others to live up to their highest, healthy potential is assisting me to move forward. I am so grateful to have a great reason to wake-up in the morning and to be involved with a profession and community of such greatness and love.Migdal Chiropractic & Family Chiro Chi Center HONESTYby the Milagro Center StarsDuring this past month of October, the Milagro Center STARS explored the living value of HONESTY. Here, in their own words, is what the kids said about the meaning of HONESTY: Being honest means willing to face yourself even if you did something wrong. Johnny Honesty is being fair to one another. To be sincere and intelligent. Mildred It feels free to be truthful. Kayla Lies lead to other lies. Honesty is a way of living. Josh Being truthful is something to be proud of. Bryan Its our responsibility to be honest because we want to treat others how we want to be treated. Rolph It feels good to tell the truth even if it is weird in the beginning because it is helpful. Christopher If you tell the truth people will respect you. Nikacie


The Delray Beach Pineapple By Jamie Salen The Pineapple Staff WriterFor what shall it prot a man who shall gain the whole world, but lose his own soul. -Matthew 16:26 One of the more interesting aspects of downtown Delray Beach is the abounding diversity of people in one place. We are a community of true individuals who have found commonality in our love of Delray Beach. It is this quality that has cultivated a variety of interesting subcultures, all adding to the distinct avor of our city. The Quantum Healing and Empowerment Center (the Center), located on the second oor of an inconspicuous building, just north of Atlantic Ave. on South Federal Highway, is the hub for one growing subculture related to health and healing. Over the course of 15 years, Dr. Brian Sheen has quietly built one of the leading alternative and complementary medical centers in the country, right here in Delray Beach. As a best selling author and featured expert for Good Morning America, CNN, USA Today and countless others media outlets, Sheen has taken his over 40 years of experience in the industry and packaged it into a life-saving hub, right under our noses. Based on the idea that the conscious connection of the spirit and mind is the most powerful part of a human being, and the true source of unlimited healing potential, the Center has helped to cure patients suffering from debilitating conditions, such as cancer, migraines, heart disease, drug addiction, medicine dependencies, depression, diabetes, and much more. We also focus on preventative care, which we do not see a lot of in conventional medicine, explains Dr. Sheen. This can be experienced by anyone in the ongoing Wednesday evening Meditation, and A Course in Miracles classes. More than just a place for those suffering from illness, the Center also runs The Florida Institute for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (FICAM), a three-year program licensed by the Florida State Department of Education. Now in their third year, the rst class of students are soon to graduate, and if Sheen has his way, there will be more centers opening as a result. While a signicant part of the objective for FICAM is the focus on concepts, I believe that to truly prevent both physical and mental illness, its also about mastering those concepts. When these students complete the program they will have gained an understanding of themselves, and their own health, beyond that of any patient, explains Dr. Sheen. The Center is also home base for a one-year old program, called iFlourish. Yet another form of community outreach, iFlourish was developed specically for senior management in hospitals around the U.S. Dr. Sheen travels to hospitals instructing executives in stress management, effective communication, emotional intelligence and leadership development. With his own brand of life coaching, Dr. Sheen hopes to start the conversation about alternative medicine at the top level, creating an understanding that may trickle down to patients in the long-term. For Dr. Sheen, his lifes work is truly about helping the community to nd peace, happiness, and health. Many members of the Delray Beach community are students at FICAM, or patients of the Center, and not all of them can pay the nancial cost. In 2014, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will begin to cover some of the costs of preventative medicine, but until then, Dr. Sheen is willing to help those who need it. We operate on a policy of exchange. We try not to turn anyone away for nancial reasons. Through discount cards, volunteer opportunities, trades and several scholarships, mutual interests can be served. The important thing I need from my students and patients is commitment; the rest will sort itself out, he says.

PAGE 14 The Delray Beach Pineapple destinations By Stephanie Immelman Special to The PineappleYou have probably heard of the Wakodahatchee Wetlands but have you been there? You have to go! The Wakodahatchee Wetlands is a wonderland of wildlife, just off of Jog Road (a little north of Lake Ida Road) in Delray Beach. The Palm Beach County Water Utilities department runs it, so this is your tax dollars at work for the greater good. The word Wakodahatchee is derived from the Seminole Indian language meaning created waters. This is just what the Palm Beach County Water Utilities has done, creating a wetlands area, and a wildlife sanctuary. The utility pumps two million gallons of recycled water into the wetlands every Day. This not only creates a habitat for wildlife, but a green space for people to enjoy. You can experience the wetlands by taking a pleasant threequarter-mile walk on an elevated boardwalk, right out over the water. There are always plenty of avid birdwatchers there and it is no wonder. There are over 140 species of birds living in Wakodahatchee, some endangered. If you are quiet you can get up close to the wildlife that dont seem too afraid of humans. Great blue herons and white egrets roost on the fencing of the elevated walkway and seldom y off, until you are right upon them. I went at 10:00am in mid-August and there was a nice breeze and plenty of shady areas to walk in so it was rather pleasant. It will be even nicer during the Autumn months. I spotted turtles, frogs, fish, great blue herons, cranes, ducks, hawks, iguanas, squirrels, and a nest of eggs. Im an old Florida girl, so I know a gator when I hear one. I could hear him croaking just a few feet away from where I was on the elevated walkway, hidden away in the marshy reeds where I couldnt see him. It is a wonderful place to bring children to teach them about our native Florida wildlife, in a natural and peaceful environment. Or just drop by to get away from the hectic pace for a few moments of peaceful contemplation. Best of all, the Wakodahatchee Wetlands is free, and open to the public, seven days a week, from around 7am to 5:30pm (depending on the season). Experience the Wakodahatchee Wetlands.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Your Downtown Delray Beach Community Newspaper NOVEMBER 2012BusinessRealEstatedelray beach The PineappleState-of-the-art facility sets to revolutionize dental careDelray Beach, FL. The Spodak Dental Group ( under the guidance and strategic direction of Dr. Craig Spodak, today announced the ground breaking of its new 13,000 square foot, LEED certied dental facility in South Palm Beach County. The ceremony will take place November 9, 2012, at 3PM at the facilitys 3911 West Atlantic Avenue location. The new state-of-the art green facility will house a comprehensive team of the nest dental and medical professionals under one roof, who deliver a full-service patient experience, which combines the benet of a coordinated treatment plan with access to a broad range of specialty care. Dr. Spodak is nationally renowned as a guiding force in dental care, due to his patientfocused practice, which features general dentists, an endodontist, a periodontist, an oral/ maxillofacial surgeon, MD anesthesiologists, and a ceramic artist from its on-site dental laboratory. The new building, scheduled to open in late summer 2013, will be an environmentally sound, holistic building with lush landscape that is designed to comfort patients, and provide an array of environmental benets. The design team includes Richard Jones Architecture, the Michael Singer Studio, and Kast Construction. I embarked on the creation of this new facility because I wanted to provide my patients with the most advanced dental care in an environment that would complement the revolutionary services we deliver, said Dr. Craig Spodak. As important as all of my teams advanced treatments are, it is equally important that that my patients surroundings promote their health and well-being. The project is planned for LEED certication, potentially at the Silver level. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) consists of four category levels (Certied, Silver, Gold, and Platinum) for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. All designations recognize facilities that conserve natural resources, are energy-efcient, and provide a healthier space for occupants. A key design goal was to create abundant natural lighting, and indoor spaces that feel a part of the surrounding landscapes and gardens, via the large window areas. Every operatory has a vertical expanse of glass from oor-to-ceiling, and three areas have full oor-to-ceiling glass that wrap to the roof, and Solatubes that provide natural light for enclosed interior spaces. I am creating this building with the patient experience in mind, said Dr. Spodak, the winner of the 2012 Delray Beach Business Person of the Year award. The new larger facility will feature 18 dental operatories, laboratory space, ofces, gathering spaces, a learning center, a waiting area, and support spaces. Dr. Spodak is at the forefront of the national trend to develop green buildings that offer numerous benets, including a healthier work environment, enhanced ventilation, and non-toxic low emitting materials, water conservation, storm water management, and more.Spodak Dental Group to break ground on rst LEED Certied medical facility By Rigel Herman The Pineapple Staff Writer The law ofces of Kanner & Pintaluga are no small potatoes. And since moving their headquarters to downtown Delray, theyve become our citys second largest employer. The personal injury attorneys have settled nicely into their new 10,000 square foot digs at 101 Puglieses Way in Pineapple Grove. Kanner & Pintaluga exclusively represent accident and serious injury victims throughout Florida and Georgia. With ofces in Broward, Naples/Ft. Myers, Miami, Jacksonville and Duluth, Georgia, theyve got the area well covered. Choosing to call Delray Beach their primary hub was a calculated decision based on community, family and a pleasurable, inviting work environment for the staff. Founded in 2003 by Howard Kanner and Eric Pintaluga, the law ofces have a reputation as aggressive and ethical, not representing large corporations or insurance companies but instead only injured victims and families. Fitting then, that they chose Delray Beach. Their ofces have a genuine, though extravagant feel, rather than that of a large sterile plaza on a corporate row. Eric Pintaluga, who attended law school at the University of Miami, has two children, a six-year-old son and a 3-year-old daughter. Their pictures are all over his large ofce, along with what looks like 1,000 boxes of paperwork and case les. Its nice to be able to come here, Kanner says of Delray Beach, I can have my kids come down and hang out and its safe and fun. The nice thing about welcoming Kanner & Pintaluga to Delray Beach is that they are here for the right reasons. Its a joy to come to work, being in such a nice area, its like paradise, says Kanner. The two partners sincerely enjoy working in Delray Beach and are condent that their large, vibrant and diverse staff has and will continue to take advantage of their new location, ultimately bringing more business and exposure to downtown Delray Beach. Howard Kanner, who graduated from Vermont Law School in 2001 and has collected more that $100 million dollars in compensation for his clients, appreciates Delray Beachs central location and easy accessibility to the interstates and airports. More than that though, he says, Downtown Delray is a fun and beautiful place to invite clients and other professionals to come and enjoy. Kanner lives in East Boca with his wife and their daughter and is expecting another baby in the coming months. Hes a fan of Mammas Pizza for lunch and Cut 432 for dinner. Pintaluga expressed his love of the seafood risotto at Tramonti and likes to take his kids for frozen yogurt about town. The advantages of working in Delray Beach are clear and these two certainly arent shy about exploring, as much as their large case loads allow. Currently their ofces have upwards of 7,000 active case les. Passionate sports fans, both are Dolphins ticket holders and Pintaluga is a Cubs fan while Kanner is diehard for the FSU Seminoles. They plan to involve themselves with various charity endeavors in Delray Beach. Right now, however, they are making themselves at home away from home in their sparkling, impressive ofces and are hard at work with their clients. The invitation to stop by and tour their completely remodeled space is standing and open. People are welcome to stop by, introduce themselves and say hi, says Kanner. Of course, legal consults require an appointment, but they only collect a fee if they win your case.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Vision captures new image of downtown and the Delray Beach Center for the ArtsDELRAY BEACH, FL. MaasMedia, a full service Advertising Agency, helped revitalize Downtown Delray Beach Florida with Night & Day Downtown Delray campaign. The Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA) needed a catalyst to spark Downtown Delray Beach rebranding efforts. Enter MaasMedia. With their years of experience, the MaasMedia creative team immediately rolled-up their sleeves and embedded themselves in the trenches, with DDA to take on the re-branding challenges. The campaign was developed to promote the shops, art galleries, museums, unique shops, and hotels in Downtown Delray Beach. Marjorie Ferrer Executive Director of Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority said, It uniquely describes who we are and what our town delivers to the consumer. We were voted Most Fun Small Town this year by Rand McNally and USA Today! MaasMedias ad campaign has positively affected the economy of Downtown Delray Beach. Ferrer added, MaasMedia has been building our brand for several years. Our streets are bustling with people. One would never know there was a recession in our country by visiting Downtown Delray Beach and they have played a strategic part of our marketing plan. MaasMedia faced the challenge of developing new messaging, a logo, and tagline, to support Downtown Delray Beachs vibrant culture. As a result, MaasMedia developed the brand identity Night & Day Downtown Delray. Were Just What You Need! For our Village by the Sea. In addition, MaasMedia was tapped to work with the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square, formerly known as the Old School Square Cultural Arts Center, on its re-branding efforts. The creative team was challenged to promote the new name, four disciplines and facilities without damaging communitys relationship with the existing Arts Center. The MaasMedia team has been invaluable to us as we transitioned our 20-year old brand to a new name with an exciting, new look, says Melissa Carter, Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Delray Beach Center for the Arts. She added From brand consultation, to design of rst-class collateral and advertising, MaasMedia has guided us through the process, and its been a pleasure. Agency co-founder Phyllis Maas noted, We felt strongly from the start that the new campaign should introduce the organizations new logo, name change, new web address, and visually indicate the four disciplines within the Center. It was important to keep the individual facility names apparent so existing supporters would see that it is the same organization, but with a fresh, strategically designed brand identity. As part of the brand development we created the statement, a total arts experience, to reinforce the unique multi-art experiences that are offered at a single cultural arts center. This is unusual for south Florida, as we have individual art centers that might offer a few disciplines, but to offer four at one location is truly unique. MaasMedia is powered by husband and wife duo, Franz and Phyllis Maas. They are a combination of old school care with new school air. Everything produced by MaasMedia is custom-designed to meet the companys needs, criteria, and budget. Phyllis Maas, who has over 30 years of agency experience noted, Client care is a lost art nowadays, but thats integral to building quality campaigns. We become an extension of our clients. We work with them as if we are in a room down the hall. We are not afraid of hard work. For more information on MaasMedia, visit HELPS TO REBRAND DOWNTOWN DELRAY BEACH

Insurance Q & A By Harvey Brown Special to The Pineapple Question: Why doesnt my auto insurance premium go down over time, even though my car is getting older? Answer: As cars get older their value depreciates (goes down). The vast majority of auto claims (physical damage) involve repair, not a total loss of the car. The cost of parts, and labor, to repair an older vehicle can be as much, or more in some cases, than the cost to repair a new car. When you couple this with the fact that other auto coverage, such as Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability, Personal Injury Protection (No Fault), Uninsured Motorists, and Medical Payments, cost virtually the same premium, whether you drive a newer or older vehicle, you can see that auto premiums will rarely go down over time. The vast majority of auto policies will pay to repair your vehicle up to the actual cash value (depreciated value) of your car. For example, if you have a car that is worth $1,500 and the cost to repair it is $2,000, then the insurance company will total your car, i.e. they will pay you the cash value ($1,500) and not the ($2,000) it takes to repair your car. At that point, you would have to go out and either buy a new car, or keep your car and pay the difference ($500) out of pocket to repair your damaged vehicle. A money saving tip we often recommend for our clients, is to consider dropping physical damage coverage on their vehicle, once it reaches about 10 years of age. Remember: Hurricane Season Ofcially Ended November 1st NOW is the best time to reevaluate your insurance. Next Month: Who can I let drive my car?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.

PAGE 22 The Delray Beach Pineapple The Lady Atlantic to host dinner cruiseVeterans Pathway to Business Success is embarking on its rst fundraiser, as they set sail on their mission to provide grants to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, who are seeking funding for their own businesses. The all-volunteer, non-prot organization bestows unique monetary grants that have no fees, no interest and, no payback to Florida veterans who display the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to run a business, and who have been fully vetted by South Palm Beach County SCORE. The organization was founded last year by Boca Raton resident, Jerry Kramer, a decorated Korean War veteran. The dinner cruise on the popular Lady Atlantic yacht is set for Friday, November 9, 2012 at 6 pm, and includes a cocktail reception, buffet dinner, an open bar, and dancing underthe-stars. Tickets are $500 per person, and are fullytax deductible. The entire event has been completely underwritten, and all proceeds will benet the fund. The evening honors Major General Joseph J. Taluto, US Army Retired. MG Taluto, himself an Iraq Veteran, is also Vice President of Veterans Pathway and works in many ways to help veterans. Veterans Pathway recently awarded their rst grant to Fred Pollino, who completed South Palm Beach County SCORE Associations extensive counseling and mentoring program, and was awarded $40,000 to nance the expansion of his Better Escalator Company, based in Boynton Beach. Jerry Kramer donated the rst $250,000 to begin this organization, explained Taluto. Our goal is to inform and rally the community to help us help as many veterans as possible. Although we can never fully repay our veterans for their dedication and service, we hope that everyone who learns about Veterans Pathway will honor these men and women by making a donation to our organization. For tickets to the event, or to make a donation of any size, contact Veterans Pathway VP of Marketing, Gerry Goldberg, at 561-235-4584.

Some would call this the epicenter of Delray Beach, containing the majority of our downtown merchants, and our historical land marks. The last few years has fostered much talk about home values on a county, state, and even national level, but I felt it was time to dive into our own back yard a bit. One of the things that makes Delray Beach great is the citys master plan. What surely stemmed from many sleepless nights by the citys forefathers, led to an incredibly detailed, and well thought out, set of zoning restrictions. Very few people are aware of the countless hours that still go into reviewing and adjusting, these restrictions to ensure growth while maintaining a high quality of life for residents. Boards like Planning and Zoning (P&Z) and SPRAB (Site Plan Review and Appearance Board) are made up of local residents who donate their time to keep the citys best interests in mind. Sometimes, especially as of late discussing major development projects, these meetings can run from 6:00pm, to wellpast midnight. Its the passion of these citizens willing to donate large amounts of their time that help keep Delray Beach strong. One major concern is Residential Density. Simply put, how many people can live within an area. Changes to this can drastically affect the amount of inventory in a given area which can then affect the law of supply and demand in a neighborhood. This is especially important in a downtown area like zip code 33444, where many people want to live close to the action. Keeping a handle on this has allowed 33444 to maintain its values as opposed to many other parts of the county and state. Rightfully so, since who wouldnt want to live in the Most Fun Small Town in America. So lets talk about current values for a moment.

The Delray Beach Pineapple By Ed Maass The Pineapple Staff Writer According to the National Association of Estate Planners and Counselors, more than 120 million Americans do not have an upto-date estate plan. Uhhhh.I Know Sounds boring Who cares. But take a leap of faith and read just a bit longer. One of the people mentioned, in the statistic above, just happened to be a member within my own family. Now imagine just for a moment knowing the right thing to do, arranging all that is needed to do, and then with great disappointment, watch as that person takes NO action because they believe the process is just one of those things that can be put off until tomorrow, the next day, or the day after that. Now imagine this same person goes on vacation (North Carolina), and while driving through the scenic mountains of Cashiers/ Highlands, his vehicle inadvertently leaves the road, rolls over several times, and comes to rest with him unconscious, and immobile. Fast forward to the hospital Intensive Care Trauma Unit, where the family has arrived, everyone gathered at his bedside and the doctors states, His neck is broken in three places, we wont really know anything for the next 24 hours, and because of his age his chances for survival are marginal. So much for putting off until tomorrow, that which he should have done that day. I share this story with you because many people are under the mistaken belief that only the wealthy need estate planning, and believe me, this is not the case. Most, if not all of us, have loved ones that we leave behind, saddling them with our assets, debts and a whole host of other issues. We might even have left our family sitting idly by our hospital bed, because we neglected to plan ahead for medical decisions. a coma, unable to communicate, and no one has the authority to speak on your behalf, or declare that which you would have wanted. We (the family) were unsuccessful in getting him to plan, however that doesnt mean that no one else will listen, and with that, I hope the following information helps to prevent this scenario from playing out for you, and/or your loved ones. Listed below are ve specic documents that I know are extremely important, and you may need, regardless of your age, the state of your health, or the size of your wealth: Durable power of attorney (DPOA): Helps protect your property in the event that you become mentally or physically unable to handle nancial matters. Without a DPOA, your family members would have to institute legal proceedings to appoint a guardian to carry out responsibilities, such as paying everyday expenses, collecting benets, ling taxes, and managing your investments. By addressing, in advance, the possibility of incapacity, you and your family can avoid the expense of legal fees and the potential loss of property. Advanced medical directives: Should you be unable to express your wishes yourself, these directives state what treatments you would want, and who is allowed to make medical decisions on your behalf. There are three types of advanced medical directives you should be aware of: Health care power of attorney (HPOA): Known as a health care proxy in some states, this document appoints a representative to make your medical decisions regarding nutrition, hydration, and continuation of life support. Living will: Through a living will, you approve, or decline, certain types of medical care, even if that choice could result in your death. It serves as an important document when the person named as your HPOA is unable to make a decision about continuing life-sustaining treatment. Do not resuscitate (DNR) order: This tells medical personnel not to perform CPR, should you go into cardiac arrest. Many of us dont like to think about planning for a future that we wont be around to experience. But if you work through the critical components of estate planning with your attorney, and use the information above, I am 100% condent that your family will be in a much better position than mine was. Thoughts determine what you want..Action determines what you get.Ed Maass is a Certied Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant, and Chartered Life Underwriter.

PAGE 32 The Delray Beach Pineapple


The Delray Beach Pineapple Mingle Cringle DELRAY BEACH SANTA CRAWL 2012 on December 15th... be ready to get Red, Hot, and Jolly.

PAGE 34 The Delray Beach Pineapple Tattoo glamour girl rings in new year with pin-up style photos Lea Vendetta made her mark as one of the original cast members of Spike TVs, Ink Master, hosted by rocker David Navarro. The red-headed beauty captured the hearts of men around the globe, when she was then picked to pose for the pages of Maxim magazine, showing off her very personal body of work. Now, Lea is revealing more of her gorgeous collection, through a very artistically photographed 11x17 2013 calendar. The tattoo artist, model, and painter was inspired by fan requests to create a calendar, so she tapped world-renowned photographer Robert Alvarado, to create a sophisticated, yet edgy pin-up style calendar that not only highlights Leas original beauty, but the incredible artwork that now adorns her body. Born in Paris, Lea has made it her mission to use her artistic expression to awaken the world to the beauty of tattooing. The calendar is now on sale for $25 at I am really excited about this calendar, said the Parisian-born artist, who now lives in Boynton Beach, Florida. Each picture captures a different mood, and evokes a new feeling. From irty to vampy, innocent to ethereal, working with Robert Alvarado was an amazing experience and we created something that I know people will enjoy gazing upon throughout the year. Lea who got her rst tattoo at age 18, considers her body a canvas, and seeks the worlds best tattoo artists to create their vision on her skin. Some people see a Picasso and must possess it, I see certain artists and I want to collect their work as well. But for me it is so much more personal because I live with their art and I want to share that beauty with others. That is why this calendar is such a wonderful opportunity for me to show everyone the true artistry that the best tattoo artists create. Lea is passionate about promoting the true artistry behind tattooing, as she is considered one of the worlds nest tattoo artists, and also is trained in traditional art, and has sold many paintings. I got an Art et Lettres high school diploma, and I did one year of preparation aux grandes ecoles, at lEcole de Svres, in Paris. (I was accepted to lEcole de Sevres and one year there was going to allow me to go to the big art schools in Paris such as Boulle, E.N.S.A.D etc. I was selected with 23 other lucky students, over thousands of entries to attend that school. However, I ended up not attending any of those schools. I decided I wanted to learn more commercial art work, and instead, did one year of advertising school in Montpellier(south of France), then my life took another direction. When Lea got her rst tattoo she was captivated by the technique and the talent needed to become truly great. The skin is totally different medium to work on, she said. And because you are creating on a person, you must be perfect every time. The creative process is challenging, and rewarding. I love what I do, and I also love that I am also expanding my artistry in many different directions. Since the success of Ink Masters, Lea has been in demand for her various forms of artistic talent, including many requests for alternative modeling. I am really enjoying life, she said. And through this calendar I hope to share my passion every day with thousands of people! Dada Restaurant and present:Pretty in Ink:Calendar Release Party and Tattooed Beauties Contest 1st Place: $500 Cash Prize and a tattoo calendar photoshoot Friday, November 23rd, from 9pm 2am at Dada, 52 Swinton, Delray Beach: (561)330-3232To apply: Send pictures & info to: Must be female, age 18+, have at least 1 tattoo & be able to appear in person November 23rd for live nal judging. Ink Masters Star, Lea Vendetta, Releases 2013 Calendar Question: Ive been an outstanding bartender for most of my life, but I am ready for a change. What should I do with my talents/resume? Im worried I wont nd something that can match the money I make now. Answer: I was in a similar situation not too long ago, waiting tables, cooking sh, paying the bills, but not quite satised. I decided I needed a change, went back to school, took some loans, and after four years, I am happily employed. I understand the trepidation involved with taking the risk, and its not easy. The number one thing before changing professions is identifying what you want, or think, you want to do. Nothing would be more professionally stressful than leaving a productive job, for a job you dislike more, that pays less. So identify your passions/talents, and gure out how to make money off them. Speak to people successful at what you want to do, and use their experience to forge your own path. Contact any resources available in the elds you identify, communes, unions, professional groups, ght clubs, mixers. Risk will always be present in a big life move, but with due diligence, you can mitigate the chances of failure. In your corner is your work. I assume you mainly work nights, and weekends, so if you are dedicated enough in your free time, you might be able to continue working while doing the personal work that establishes your new future, all the while lessening nancial stressors. Remember that if you do end up taking a step down in pay, which you seem to be bracing for, and can reasonably expect for a period of time starting fresh, if what you nd brings you more happiness, greater challenges, and/or establishes a new future for yourself, a sacrice on the short-side could be worth it in the long run. Most importantly, if you got that I am ready for a change itch, you got to deal with it one way or another. Either re-dedicate to the path you are on, or begin to positively make a new change. Otherwise you might become unhappy wherever you are, despite the money, or lifestyle you are leading. Good luck! We happily encourage your participation in the column, visit us online at to comment.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Drew and The Woo is a regular Pineapple series that follows two young professionals as they look for the perfect night out in Delray Beach. Theyll need a happy hour, a sub-20-buck dinner, some live music and a late-night hot spot. Call it a scavenger hunt, bar crawl or even a mild bender. Either way youre going to want to follow in their footsteps. At the end of the year, Drew and The Woo (Drew Tucker & Ryan Boylston) will select their top choice for each category and invite the whole city to come out and join them for The Best Night Out In Downtown Delray. HAPPY HOUR PARK TA VERN Currently one of Delray Beachs most popular eateries, Park Tavern is known for its 360 degree bar, out door park adjoined seating, and a phenomenal gourmet bar food menu. Drew: There was only one thing that could complete the already impressive Park Tavern package Ryan: a really good happy hour. Drew: Correct, except they decided against really good and jumped right to jaw droppingly amazing! Currently Park Taverns happy hour offers 50% off ALL drinks and a special happy hour menu. Ryan: Lets just clarify All Drinks. Its not all wells. Its not all domestics. At Park all means all. Were talking top shelf liquors, wine by the glass, draft craft beers, and an assortment of bottle beers that will make your head spin. Drew: All served by one of the best bartender staffs on the Ave. Ryan: This reminds me of one of my other favorite happy hours downtown. Drew: Let me guess Cut 432? Ryan: Um. Yeah. What are you, The Mentalist? Drew: No, it just comes as no surprise since both Park and Cut are part of the Modern Restaurant Group owned by Brian Albe, Brandon Belluscio, and Chef Anthony Pizzo. Ryan: That ad writes itself: Park and Cut in Downtown Delray coupled with a shot of a steak and a burger being cut into. Drew: Not bad, but I like this one better Park and Cut the last two happy hours standing for Drew and The Woo. Ryan: Quite the prediction my friend and quite the possibility. DINNER FOR UNDER $20 PAPAS TAPAS Word on the street is that this new addition to Pineapple Grove has been a Delray secret for almost four years and is now stepping into the spotlight with its passionate foodie fan base and new local. Ryan: So this is a lot nicer than what I expected. Drew: What does that mean? Ryan: Well, Ive just heard so much about this family based restaurant and how they put customer service and food quality above everything else. I didnt think that it would also be able to couple that with an incredibly sexy bar area and lounge like dining room. Drew: Gotchya. Not too many restaurants can check the all of the above box like Papas Tapas. Ryan: And I just love how they chose Pineapple Grove. They join Brule, Maxs Harvest, Solita and Josephs Bistro. To be blunt: that is one hell of a restaurant lineup. Drew: Agreed. If you havent ventured off the Ave in awhile youre missing out. With that said lets talk tapas! Ryan: OK. Lets do something a little different. Instead of just listing a bunch of their dishes, (which I can condently say are all amazing) lets each pick one and share. Tapas style. You go rst. Drew: Alright. I choose Ryan: Tabla de Madrid! There is no dish like it! Drew: What happen to me going rst? I totally would have chosen the Table de Madrid. Queso manchego, jamon serrano, roasted peppers in olive oil and olives served with warm bread. It truly is like nothing I have had in Delray Beach. Ryan: Ok, so now my turn. Drew: How? Ryan: I choose Kalens Championes: Sauteed mushrooms and garlic, with olive oil, wine and more garlic. A dish even a mushroom hater can love. Drew: These two dishes and a drink or two keep us right at $20 apiece, so I will let your bogarting of my tapa choices slide. Ryan: Perfect. Now lets clock out, call a bunch of our friends and do some real damage on a real budget. Drew: Ill order one of everything. You text Spodak and Lehmann. Ryan:: Done *The referenced names above are both local business owners and huge community supporters in Delray Beach. Youre almost guaranteed to catch them in the paper from time to time. Or at the very least out with Drew and The Woo. LIVE MUSIC ARTS GARAGE Arts Garage is a budding performance art venue with no sacred cows. Regularly experimenting with cutting edge music, theatre and live art. Audiences have been enjoying everything from world renowned jazz musicians to local hip-hop artists over the past year. Sometimes you can even catch a mashup of two genres like with their upcoming Grunge & Glamour event on November 3rd. Drew: Well, I think it is only fair that we mention that I work with Arts Garage and that they are also one of your clients. Ryan: Fair enough. But, I think it is also important to note that we both started as volunteers on a marketing/programming board far before that. In fact that is where The Woo met The Drew. Drew: Dont get all-nostalgic on our readers. This isnt Drew and The Woo: The Search for the Perfect Bromance. Ryan: Alright, alright. But it is pretty interesting that we sat with Arts Garage Director, Alyona Ushe, before any of this (Arts Garage) was here and now its the number one entertainment venue in downtown Delray Beach. Drew: Its true. This place has come a long way and their still surprising me. Tonight for example, we are here for one of three Orquesta Aragn shows. Ask anyone even remotely familiar with Cuban music and theyll tell you these guys are nothing short of legends. Formed in Cuba in 1939, Orquesta Aragn quickly established itself as a true institution of Cuban music, and has evolved over the years to incorporate new instruments and musical innovations. They are credited with inspiring the New York mambo movement in the 1950s, and are hailed as the purest form of music from Cuba. This 15-person ensemble combines violins, piano, ute, percussion and vocals to deliver one of the best live shows on the planet. Ryan: Where are you going to see a band like this, in a venue located in the heart of downtown, with a setting for social interaction rather than a typical rowed theatre? Drew: Actually, probably quite a few places around the country. Ryan: Oh. What about one that allows you to bring your own food and alcohol. Drew: Now that is a rarity! A rarity I thoroughly enjoy on the regular. Ryan: No drink special is beating that price. Drew: Cheers to that. LATE NIGHT SPOT IL BACIO Delray Beachs largest indoor-outdoor club. Expect large parties, lots of dancing and a rave like atmosphere. Ryan: For the second time tonight I am surprised. Drew: By what? Ryan: I just gured we would be too old for the IL Bacio crowd. Or at least that you would be. Drew: First, we are practically the same age. Second, IL Bacio is far more diverse than most think. The location has a long history in Delray Beach. To some it is known as a great live music stop, to others a Miamiesque nightclub. Ryan: Its really one incredible venue. The inside is what you would expect from a quality night club (which are few and far between now days) and the outside is like a whole other world. Several bars, a large dance oor, couches, tables and a covered stage. Drew: And that is one serious sound system you hear pounding. IL Bacio has always been a stickler for sound quality. Ryan: Theyre also very dedicated to ensuring everyone knows whats coming up at IL Bacio. Like them on Facebook to get notications of drink specials, themed parties and special guest DJs. Sazio. . . Taxi. . . Sleep. THATS ALL FOLKSAfter a year of searching for the perfect night out, Drew and The Woo have completed their nal night of searching. We are narrowing down the winners from each category and when we gure it out everyone will be invited to join us for The Perfect Night Out In Downtown Delray. Mark November 16th off on your calendar and LIKE The Pineapple on Facebook to get updates on where the night will take us.Delray Beach welcomes popular juried art festival Thanksgiving weekendDowntown Delray Beach welcomes back its signature Thanksgiving Weekend art festival, with a wide variety of handmade art, featuring 200 of the nest artists in the country, as well as top local and regional talent. This event, traditionally held in Pineapple Grove will now take place along NE & SE 4th Avenues, one block north and south of Atlantic Avenue. The artistic media represented, includes paintings, life size sculptures, photography, glass, wood, jewelry, collage mixed media, and ceramics. A portion of the proceeds benets the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority. Admission is free and open to the public. Art Enthusiasts, collectors and holiday shoppers will have the opportunity to explore the original, and eclectic, mix of art on display and for sale. Timed with the Thanksgiving weekend, the festival presents holiday shoppers an alternative to crowded mall shopping, and offers a vast selection for those seeking unique gift items. An outdoor art festival is an ideal setting for holiday shopping, says festival promoter Howard Alan. You can bypass the busy parking lots, crowded shops, and overworked cashiers and actually pick out very unique gifts for practically everyone on your holiday list. This two-day juried festival makes the arts accessible to a broad audience and appeals to many tastes and budgets. The prices range from $25 handmade earrings to $50,000 lifesized metal sculptures, and a vast array of prices and media in between. The participating artists, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants, based on quality and diversity, will be on site for the duration of the show, and available to discuss their art and inspiration. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.
