The Delray Beach Pineapple Veterans Pathway to Business Success raised $100,000 recently at their rst fundraiser, a dinner cruise aboard the Lady Atlantic in Delray Beach. The all-volunteer, non-prot organization bestows unique monetary grants that have no fees, no interest and no payback to Florida veterans of the Iraq or Afghanistan wars who display the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to run a business. Former service men and women who are interested in applying for the award must be fully vetted by South Palm Beach County SCORE. Application details are available at We are thrilled to have raised this amount of money, said organization founder Jerry Kramer, a decorated Korean War veteran who founded the 501 c(3) with $250,000 of his own money. We created this organization to provide veterans, who are aspiring entrepreneurs, with the nancial means to launch their dreams. We hope to make those dreams a reality for about ten veterans a year. To do that we need the communitys continued support and commitment. Major General Joseph J. Taluto, US Army Retired, who is Vice President of the organization was honored at the event for his 44 years of service in the military including two years in Iraq as the commanding General of the 42nd Infantry. Our veterans have risked their lives for us and now we can pay back that seless dedication by investing in their future, he said. We urge everyone to make a donation of whatever amount they can to help us in our mission.Veterans Pathway to Business Success raises $100,000 at rst fundraiser MG Joe J. Taluto, Vice President of Veterans Pathway, Jerry Kramer, President of Veterans Pathway, and Fred Pollino, Grant RecipientPalm Beach County Fire Rescue, the Professional Fireghter & Paramedics Benevolent Fund, Inc and the Professional Fireghters and Paramedics of Palm Beach County announced their latest cancer ghting tool the ofcial Pink Pumper. The Pink Pumper was unveiled recently at Bostons on the Beach at a fundraiser for two reghter families dealing with the devastating affects of cancer. The retired county re engine, appropriately named The Crusader will be on a crusade to raise awareness about cancer within our community. People who have suffered through the battle of cancer themselves will be able to sign the truck as a rolling memorial and a testament to the reality that the ght can be won. The pink pumper is being dedicated to two reghter families who lost loved ones to cancer one from male breast cancer and one from female breast cancer. Fireghter Mike Lefty Thompson lost his battle to male breast cancer in 2009. His wife ew in for the event and was one of the rst to sign the truck. 911 Dispatch Supervisor Nancy Simpson lost her battle with breast cancer in 2008. Her family was also there. Despite the popular association between the color pink and breast cancer, this truck will actually represent the battle against all cancers. Especially since it has been learned that cancer is a troubling and growing problem in the re service. There is a current national study to identify what is the connection between being exposed to hazardous materials and substances during a re service career and the higher incidence of cancer amongst reghters nationwide. UNVEILING THE COUNTYS FIRST PINK PUMPER AT A CANCER EVENTBy Chelsea Midlarsky Special to The Pineapple Plans are underway for the 2nd Annual Delray Beach Twilight Festival to take place on Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. along Atlantic Avenue. As the event organizer, founder, and __-year resident of Delray Beach, I am privileged and thrilled to bring this unique event that attracts more than 700 amateur and professional bicycle racers to this area. I learned much of what I know about cycling from my younger brother, Michael, 24. He has been a professional cyclist for years and helped inspire me to bring this event to Delray Beach. Pairing my passion for cycling with support to our community KIDS in Distress, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center and the YMCA Bike Program makes this event that much more meaningful. Most people have not been to a cycling race such as this. Unlike stage races, such as the Tour de France, which occur over great distances, criterium races are sprint-style, with a short, 1 kilometer course that is lapped over and over again, while spectators line the streets to watch. Cyclists race up to 35 mph with tight turns and straight-aways. There will be something for everyone at this family-friendly event. The festival will include events for all ages and levels to include The Granfondo Garneau Florida, presented by The Delray Beach Twilight ($125 pp) including a custom jersey and Bib timing; Twilight Kids Race for children ages 3 10 (FREE); Amateur Mens Criterium for intermediate and advanced USCF riders; Twilight Childrens Parade; Womens Criterium for elite and advanced women athletes; three 30 minute Keith King BMX stunt shows between 2 p.m. 8 p.m.; Pro Mens Criterium for professional and elite athletes to include current and former Olympic athletes, national and international champions. Spectators will also enjoy a fun-lled kid zone, health-centric vendor booths and the opportunity to meet celebrity cyclists, all while cheering on racers. Donations will be accepted for Kids In Distress at multiple locations throughout the Delray Beach Twilight Festival. The Twilight races were founded in 1980 by Gene Dixon that became the rst nighttime race in the U.S. in over in 60 years. Dixon hand-picked the top 10 night races to put on a nationwide series called the U.S.A. Crits that has grown to one of the most popular of its kind among professional cyclists, international racing stars and spectators. Most events draw thousands of people who come out to cheer racers on and be a part of the action. All proceeds raised through this event will benet KIDS in Distress, the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center and the YMCA Bike Program. Through our partnership with the YMCA, we will be visiting area YMCAs and schools with professional riders who will talk about their experiences and stress importance of helmet safety. We will also be donating 1,000 helmets. We hope to see you on March 23!

Haas, the 2006 champion, and Nishikori, who began his accent to the Top 20 with his rst career win in the 2008 ITC, will join Mardy Fish (2009) and the worlds top-ranked doubles duo of Mike and Bob Bryan (2009, 2010) in returning to the tournament where they have won ATP titles. Add top-ranked American John Isner to the mix, and excitement is evident when tournament director Mark Baron discusses the 2013 event. Not only are these guys returning champions, but all of them, plus John Isner, have spent time in the Top 20 this year, says Baron. We will see more Top 20 players on the courts in Delray Beach in 2013 than any other year in our history. The ITC is also returning two of its ATP Champions Tour event champions Carlos Moya (2012) and Mark Philippoussis (2011) giving fans the opportunity to see seven former champions in the ITCs two events. Both the ATP World Tour and the ATP Champions Tour tournaments play during the same week the only event in the world to combine both Tours into a single event. Haas recently won the ATPs 2012 Comeback Player of the Year award after an improbable run back to the Top 20 from his third career-threatening injury. Ranked No. 896 in 2010 following hip surgery, the 34-yearold fought back to nish the 2012 season with a 31-16 record and a No. 21 world ranking. He won his 13th career ATP title and capped the season with his 500th career ATP win. After reaching No. 2 in the world during the 2002 season, Haas career was on the ropes after he missed all of 2003 following shoulder surgery. He was the ATPs Comeback Player of the Year in 2004 after ghting back to the Top 20, but the shoulder required more surgery in 2007. Once again he reached the Top 20 in 2010, only to miss 14 months over the next two years with the hip injury. I just want to enjoy that moment of going out on the court, in front of a crowd, and have that feeling of a little pressure and wanting to win, Haas told Deuce Magazine at the beginning of 2012. Nishikori also enjoyed a stellar 2012 season with a 37-18 singles record and a career-high No. 19 ranking. He won his second ATP title (at the Rakuten Japan Open in Tokyo), and reached the quarternals in the Australian Open and the London Olympics. In addition to his title in Delray Beach, which helped earn him the ATPs 2008 Newcomer of the Year Award, the 22-year-old was an ITC seminalist in 2011. Nishikori is one of two qualiers to win ITC titles in tournament history.Former champs Haas & Nishikori sign on for ITC This past November 6th, the City Commission honored those companies who donated new football uniforms to Atlantic High School. Pictured with a jersey signed by President Barack Obama are; Jim Knight, Maya Saxena from Saxena White, P.A., and daughter, Ryan Boylston, Lee Cohen, Mayor Woodie McDufe, Uri Mann from the Related Group, and Rick Konsavage from Ocean Properties.Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

The Delray Beach Pineapple ARTS GARAGE HONORED continued from page 1 Scholl, Vice President of Arts at Knight Foundation. We are honored and humbled by the support we received from our patrons, supporters and the entire South Florida artistic and cultural community, said Chuck Halberg, President of Arts Garage Board of Directors. This is a major gift for the Arts Garage and is conrmation that it is headed in the right direction in cultural place-making, said Bill Nix, Vice President of Marketing and Government Affairs at Palm Beach Cultural Council. Delray Beach should be very proud of the recognition this brings to its effort to continue to use the arts as economic stimulus. I know Palm Beach County is. Launched in 2011, Creative City Collaborative, also known as Arts Garage, was designed to promote the cultural community of Delray Beach and to enhance the citys reputation as an international cultural destination for artists and patrons. The Knight Arts Challenge Award will allow Arts Garage to build on this mission while also aiding in the expansion of these key areas: The artistic programs we feature stimulate and challenge our patrons, inspire and engage our youth and enhance the quality of life in our region, said Alyona Ushe, Executive Director of Arts Garage. The Knight Foundation leaders are visionaries who realize that cultural venues and arts organizations are vital for communities to ourish. We are grateful to the Knight Foundation for the recognition and for empowering us to pursue our mission with a vengeance. To secure the Arts Challenge Award, Ushe needs to raise an additional $30,000 in matching funds. We are in the midst of our next rst Art Garages rst end-of-the-year fundraising drive, said Ushe. I implore our patrons to step up to the plate and to make as generous a gift as they can. Everywhere you go in South Florida we want you to have an encounter with art. Places like the Arts Garage help bring culture deep into communities as a way to delight, inspire and challenge us, said Dennis Scholl. About Arts Garage An initiative of the city of Delray Beach, FL and Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, Creative City Collaborative (DBA Arts Garage), was designed to advance arts and culture as an economic engine. The venue, which held more than 150 different events during its rst year, is a testing ground for many artistic programs and is setting the foundation for a much bigger site in the future, Arts Warehouse.

PAGE 10 The Delray Beach Pineapple Making a meaningful lifestyle change to your health and tnessMaking a New Years resolution is easy. Making a resolution stick is the hard part. This is especially true with tness and diet related promises that are so common after the holiday feeding frenzy comes to an end. So how can we change this? How can we make this January 1st the turning point for our health and tness? The honest answer to this is that a meaningful change in tness requires commitment, planning and effort. So how important is health and tness to you? This will largely determine your willingness and motivation to make the necessary commitment. Fitness needs to be important enough to you that you are willing to rearrange parts of your busy schedule to make sure you can workout on a consistent basis. Your workouts need to be given a certain level of priority that is below family, children and spouse but above television, internet surng and Facebook. If you do not go out of your way to make the time, the time will never be made for you, and tness will continue to be something that other people achieve and enjoy. So after you have decided that tness is important enough to you that you are willing to make it a real priority in your life, you must then make a plan. Planning for your tness starts with identifying as many potential pitfalls that would interfere with your training as you can nd. Most of these will involve constraints of time and current physical abilities. So many otherwise motivated individuals have abandoned their tness campaigns because they could not consistently make time for the gym, or they kept getting hurt. You want to be practical when you plan your training around major life responsibilities such as career and family. Make the most use of time that is the least affected by home and work responsibilities. Early mornings and the hour after work are very popular times to exercise for these very reasons. Once you have made the time, you can then focus on avoiding injury. Avoiding injury is best achieved with a structured training program that is created by a personal trainer. A qualied trainer is able to assess your current tness level and plan your training accordingly. This helps you avoid training injuries that result from exercising too hard, too soon. We are all rather vulnerable to getting hurt at the start of a training campaign. This is because our muscles, ligaments, and tendons have not had enough time to adapt to the training loads being placed on the body. A trainer will help you pace yourself appropriately to give your body the time it needs to adjust. Your effort needs to be sustainable over the course of time if you wish to achieve sustainable results. Instead of an A, how about some abs for your effort! The nal necessary element to achieve tness, after you have made the necessary commitment and the appropriate planning, is your actual effort level in the gym. There are a few different variables with regards to effort that matter here. The rst is frequency of effort. We do need to exercise often enough for it to matter. Twice a week will simply not cut it. We need to aim for 3 to 4 times a week, at least. It is actually easiest to incorporate a 5 to 6 day a week training schedule. At that frequency, even if some of the workouts are for 30 minutes, your body will start to dislike inactivity and it will push you to exercise. This frequency tends to result in the highest levels of energy and wellbeing. It is important to always reserve at least one day off a week. Next is the duration of your effort. Cardiovascular exercise should be 30 minutes or more. Resistance training can be 30-45 minutes, depending on the intensity level and the amount of rest between sets. Intensity will vary depending on your tness level and your goals. Fat burning is best achieved at a lower to moderate intensity level that is sustained over a longer period of time. A trainer will work you up to a higher intensity level when your body is ready to handle it. The last effort variable is consistency of effort. If we can keep our structured regimen going week in and week out, month after month, and year after year, we will be able to achieve and sustain a much higher level of tness than we ever have before. It is necessary for us to believe that achieving a signicantly higher level of tness is possible if we implement meaningful changes. We must set ourselves up for success and then not be afraid to go for it. So much of tness is a mental game. If we can get past the psychological part, the physical part is really not so hard. The hardest part has always been and continues to be just showing up.

The Delray Beach Pineapple A lot of people begin the New Year by making resolutions. Weve all been there. We take a vow to lose weight, exercise more or spend more time with our family. We start the year with great intentions, but then we quickly relapse into old habits. Why is it so hard to stick to those New Years resolutions? Here are some ways you can make your intentions a reality this year: 1. Write down your intentions and keep them in a visible place, like taped to your bedroom mirror or the dashboard of your car. 2. Get to the source of whatever is keeping you in a rut. Are you in a stressful relationship that causes you to eat a pint of Ben & Jerrys every night? Are you stressed at your job and feel too tired to exercise after work? If you dont tackle the root of the behavior, it will be much harder to accomplish your goal. 3. Be clear about what your life would look like once you achieve your goal. If you resolve to go to the gym more, how will this benet you? Get connected to the result of your action, and you will be more likely to stick with your plan. 4. Share your resolutions with friends and family. Hold each other accountable for achieving your goals. If you want to go to the gym more, have a friend call you two or three times a week to check on you or invite them to join you. 5. Reward yourself with every little accomplishment. If your intention is to lose weight and you lose 1 pound a week, pamper yourself with a massage. Big changes do not require big leaps. Permanent change is more likely to happen gradually than through one big restrictive plan. Allow yourself to climb the ladder one rung at a time. Happy New Year!

Located at 200 N.E. 2nd Ave, Suite 106, the Infrasweat sauna studio is destined to be a sanctuary for customers interested in health and tness. The Delray Beach location is the rst of many in the South Florida market planned by Infrasweat. According to studies done at the University of Missouri and by The Journal of American College of Cardiology, infrared sauna treatments are proven to lower blood pressure as well as signicantly increase circulation, improve heart health, and aid in weight loss. Infrasweat is the rst of its kind in South Florida and features multiple Sunlighten private infrared saunas in one location. The Sunlighten mPulse brand sauna is the worlds rst bio-feedback enabled or smart infrared sauna and can help users wirelessly track heart rate, weight and body mass index changes, calories and burned, and more. The sauna also features the rst customizable full spectrum infrared heater, which allows users to control the settings. Options include: near-infrared light (for pain relief and skin purication), mid-infrared (which assists in weight loss and improved circulation), and far infrared (which reduces blood pressure and is wholebody detoxifying). For the past year, I have been traveling across the country to California in order to access and experience the benets of infrared sauna therapy, said Infrasweat owner Kelly Dorsey. I am thrilled to nally be able to introduce this proven wellness concept to South Florida through the Infrasweat studio, and help the community understand the impact of infrared heat therapy rst-hand. The infrared sauna wellness concept has already taken off in California, Finland and other markets around the world. It offers a range of benets, including detoxication, weight loss, improved circulation, skin purication and pain relief. Infrared saunas have been featured on Oprah, their benets proven in studies conducted by Kagoshima University in Japan, and their results sited in Harvard Health Publications. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. Infrared saunas increase the bodys core temperature thus resulting in a much deeper, more detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. Infrared sauna health benets include: natural and safe way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared Sauna heat heats the body directly and can help detoxify the body by getting rid of highly toxic metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid and other organic and inorganic compounds. Studies show that a 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 700 calories. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, all of which cause the body to burn more calories. profuse sweating achieved after just a few minutes in the infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and clean. Further, increased blood circulation has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions and cuts. traditional saunas operate at extremely high temperatures in order to heat the air, infrared saunas heat the individual directly and therefore feel gentle, soothing and therapeutic. One session at Infrasweat will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and renewed. tissue, joints and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic conditions, such as bromyalgia. Increased blood circulation also helps carry off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle so they can recover faster. a deep sweat which makes the heart pump faster, in turn increasing blood ow, lowering blood pressure and helping circulation. Scientic evidence, in fast, shows that using an infrared sauna two or more times a week lowers blood pressure. To learn more visit the Infrasweat website at; or call 561276-5550.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Your Downtown Delray Beach Community Newspaper JANUARY 2013BusinessRealEstatedelray beach The PineappleDELRAY BEACH, FL SofA Delray, the 172 unit downtown rental apartment community, proposed by the Related Group of Miami, received unanimous approval from City Commissioners at their December 11th public hearing. Several members of the local community applauded the project and it was praised by commissioners as a perfect example of smart downtown design and development. Designed by Delray Beach architect Richard Jones of Richard Jones Architecture, construction will start in early summer 2013. The modern styled buildings will be Green certied and incorporate several amenities and feature a signature cantilevered pool with acrylic edge. Jones, who named the project SofA (South of Atlantic) sees this as a catalyst for revitalization of the area one block south of the downtown core. This neglected area in the middle of our downtown has tremendous potential to become Delrays new hip urban neighborhood, said Jones, we envision it as the SofA District complete with ofce, retail, and several loft style modern rental studios and apartments.

Most readers will immediately identify the yummy description as belonging to the pride and joy of Delray Beach. .The Sundy House. So now that I have gotten all of the obvious features out of the way, lets venture into the largely unknown world of one of this communitys most important businessmen and philanthropists, Sundy House owner, Tom Worrell. Worrell moved to Delray Beach in 1984, years before our thriving city experienced its magical transformation from proverbial caterpillar into world-class buttery. When Worrell rst purchased property on South Swinton Avenue in 1998, it was a string of dilapidated old homes in a dangerous part of town. Realizing that many of these neglected structures belonged to founders of the community and housed generations of Delray Beachs most historical gures, he then began the process of having the properties restored and designated historical sites. This was the rst step into the resurgence of one of the most important neighborhoods in todays Delray Beach. Worrells passion for preservation, conservation and education has been the driving force behind so much of his contribution to our city and to the world. Not only did he bring the 1902 home of our citys former Mayor, Mr. John Sundy, back to life, he transformed the shell-rock parking lot behind it into a magnicent tropical paradise full of botanical treasures. Taru Gardens is a nonprot Living-Spaces Museum providing education for students all over Palm Beach County, not to mention a natural refuge for dinner and hotel guests of the Sundy House. Worrells dream was to create a sustainable green village right in the middle of downtown Delray Beach. A number of other houses and buildings surrounding the Sundy House property are also owned and maintained by Worrell and he is constantly making new plans for expansion. While the Sundy House in itself supports many community organizations and frequently sponsors and hosts local charity events, Worrells most important contribution to the Delray Beach community (and maybe the world community) is Worrell Water Technologies. Few are aware that Worrell, and his Vice Chairman Kimberly Goodyear, are the brains and passion behind some extremely important inventions. Much of the existing infrastructure that processes and provides water to cities around the United States are aging and in need of repair, and a lack of access to clean water sources is a serious cause of illness and death around the globe. Worrell Water is responsible for a number of life saving tools including the Living Machine which takes advantage of the earths natural processes and blends cutting-edge science and engineering with plants and bacteria to efciently reuse wastewater. Not only can the Living Machine turn every drop of water waste into the purest drinking water possible, it is also a modular machine that can be used on any scale, from one home, to a large ofce building, to a university campus and beyond. The earth has been creating its own technology for billions of years and humans only for thousands. I will put my money on the earth any day, says Worrell. The second tool created by Worrell Water is Hydrosecure, a water purication system that creates the purest and tastiest water possible. It was created at the request of the State Department after a fatal dose of the chemical cyanide was dumped into the water system of a U.S. Embassy overseas in an attempted attack. Out of every company that submitted a purication system to the State Departments, only Hydrosecure passed every test. This system can turn any poison into pure water, says Worrell.

PAGE 18 The Delray Beach Pineapple


The Delray Beach Pineapple In 2008, The Alta Congress Project, a 369 unit Mid-rise Apartment Community just south of Atlantic Avenue, was the rst project to be approved in Delray Beachs newly zoned and renamed Delray Innovation Corridor along Congress Avenue. Alta Congress is ideally positioned to put its new residents in the middle of a wide variety of transportation, cultural, dining and recreational opportunities. The rst new residents are expected to occupy their new homes in January 2013. The community is located less than 1,000 feet from the Delray Beach TriRail station, linking Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach along a 70.9 mile system with 18 stations. The development is a quarter mile from I-95 and ve miles from Floridas Turnpike. West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale are all within 30 minutes of Alta Congress. The community has excellent proximity to a number of employment centers including the Boca Raton ofce market, which is home to the Boca Corporate Center and Campus, Ofce Depots corporate headquarters. The West Palm Beach ofce market included the $600 million Scripps Research Institute. Delray Beach Golf Club, designed by legendary golf course architect Donald Rose, is just west of Alta Congress. A Wood Partners property, built by Coastal Construction, the community offers amazing interior extravagances, outstanding luxuries, and solid construction. The expansive apartment homes feature beautiful 42 espresso wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and ceramic tile oors in select areas. Most homes feature balconies, spacious closets and premier locations to choose from. Every home will also feature ENERGY STAR qualied appliances, and high efciency full-size washers and dryers. The community offers a controlled access garage and elevators. Residents can stay active with an onsite personal trainer in the state-of-theart tness center, splash in the beautiful heated linear pool, or relax in one of the communitys pet-friendly lushly landscaped green-spaces, enjoying South Floridas natural splendor. Professionally managed by Lincoln Property Company, the staff is dedicated to making life easier through an extensive list of concierge services, from valet waste removal to valet dry cleaning, and automatic enrollment in the Purqz program, offering entertainment and service discounts around town.Delray Innovation Corridor takes off with Alta Congress project By Ed Maass The Pineapple Staff Writer It appears to me that our leaders in Washington D.C. have a case of stinking thinking and could use a well needed check up from the neck up. All of the talk about the scal cliff, and the negative ramications of same, are extremely important, but nonetheless, not the end of the world. Why do the leaders of our country have the inability to provide long-term solutions for the problems before us? If these same people were leaders of industry or large corporations, they would be ousted/ terminated by the Board of Directors for their inability to deliver solid results. Leaders of companies want to increase shareholder value (build wealth), create goodwill amongst their employees, and provide a cordial work environment. Congress on the other hand, cant agree with any certainty as to the best course of action and direction for our country. They seem to be unable to stand to be in the same room with one another, and they certainly arent building goodwill or trust amongst their constituents. Sufce it to say that we have little control over what Congress decides, unless of course we (The People) clean the slate and implement term limits. But thats a topic of conversation for a later date. So before I digress any further, lets look at a life rope that can be used with the scal cliff, or whenever there is doubt and/or uncertainty in the equities markets. Many investors were weary and worried at year end 2012 with the fear of our nation falling off the scal cliff. Other investors were concerned that the latest upward trend in the markets may once again be unsustainable and thus catch them in a trap. Investing, like many things in life, can be a challenge, and it has been my experience that some of us fall into the trap of trying to time the market rather than concentrating on time in the market. For one reason or another we become shortterm investors who are actually speculators. We make investment decisions based upon emotions or the daily business news, and more often than not, end up unsuccessful in the investment selection process. On the other side are those of us who succumb to investment paralysis by analysis the act of spending so much time researching, thinking and trying to decide, while time moves on without our ever taking any action. Finally we have the successful investor who falls between the two, and in my opinion, uses all the tools and resources available to make a timely and informed investment decision. Ive heard it said that investing is more confusing than the game of golf, in which you yell fore, shoot six and write down ve. In actuality, it is the simple things that in many cases are the safest things. With that in mind, that you may want to construct your life rope by investing in what I call Dividend Helpers. Dividend helpers are designed to work for you in two different ways. First, they pay a dividend income that can be spent and/ or invested whichever and however way you choose. Secondly, they offer the potential for capital appreciation (growth of your money). Note! The actual value of your investment will uctuate and may be worth more or less when you decide to sell. As of this writing a brief list of dividend helpers and their current yields might include: Altria; 5.27%, AT&T; 5.34%, Verizon; 4.68%, Bristol Myers 4.27%, Duke 4.76%, Nextera 3.47%, and Exxon Mobil 2.68%. If you are going to invest, then why not do so and include a nancial life rope, or more simply stated, if you want your cake (stock ownership) and eat it too (income you can use), then you just might be able to achieve this by investing in dividend paying stocks. Ed Maass is a Certied Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant, and Chartered Life Underwriter. Located in Downtown Delray FINANCIALLIFE ROPE Unfortunately this month I am forced to drift away from my usual love stories of historical Delray neighborhoods. There is a major issue facing homeowners who are underwater in their homes and time may have run out. The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007 was set to expire on December 31st and as of the time I am writing this article, no real ground has been made. The act allows taxpayers to be excluded from paying taxes on forgiven debt in certain circumstances. Their website explains: The Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007 generally allows taxpayers to exclude income from the discharge of debt on their principal residence. Debt reduced through mortgage restructuring, as well as mortgage debt forgiven in connection with a foreclosure, qualies for the relief. In the words of the IRS: If you borrow money from a commercial lender and the lender later cancels or forgives the debt, you may have to include the cancelled amount in income for tax purposes, depending on the circumstances. When you borrowed the money you were not required to include the loan proceeds in income because you had an obligation to repay the lender. When that obligation is subsequently forgiven, the amount you received as loan proceeds is normally reportable as income because you no longer have an obligation to repay the lender. The lender is usually required to report the amount of the canceled debt to you and the IRS on a Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt. Thus this applies to debt forgiven in short sales. Whether or not the Act will be extended is crucial for anyone considering or currently in the short sale process. Heres a Lehmanns Terms explanation: John still owes $300,000 to the bank on his home in the Seacrest Neighborhood but has to relocate to New York for work (only time anyone leaves Delray Beach is when they absolutely have to, of course). He bought the recently renovated 1950s gem at the height of the market, at the going price of $315,000. As is the story throughout most of the country, values have declined and now comparable homes in that neighborhood are selling in the $200,000 range. John gets an offer for the going rate of $200,000, the Realtor submits it to the bank, and they accept it. While out of work, John used all of his savings to get by as long as he could but is now a few months behind in his payments. The bank decides they will have to forgive the $100,000 difference to close the transaction. According to the information above, that money will be reported like income. Giving John an additional tax burden of $100,000, almost as if he had received one really big bonus check. Can you see how this might cause a problem for him? The current bills in the works, should you want to reach out to any of our elected: U.S. House of Representatives: Resolution 4336 and Resolution 4202 Senate: Senate Bill 2250 Now I must point out that I am not an attorney or an accountant so I rmly suggest if any of these circumstances apply to your situation that you consult one as soon as possible. Preparation may be your only protection. by Kurt Lehmannwww.kurtlehmann.comreal estateTIME IS RUNNING OUT Episcopal Day School St. Pauls VPK PROVIDER PLEASE JOIN US 013010AM OPENHOUSE

PAGE 26 The Delray Beach Pineapple 561.926.0146 | |


The Delray Beach Pineapple By Jim Smith, SAFE Chairman Special to The PineappleDelray Beach City Commission Approves Atlantic CrossingThe Delray Beach City Commission recently approved the Atlantic Crossing (formerly, aka Atlantic Plaza II) by a vote of 3-2. Jeff Edwards, President of Edwards Companies, a co-developer, clearly explained all the changes that the developers had made since getting direction at the last meeting from the City Commission, and after listening and acting on the requests of the stakeholders most affected by the re-development. Edwards began his presentation by explaining that the density request had been reduced from 51 du/ac to 43 du/ac. He went on to review all the other requests that were agreed to with the stakeholders including: 1. Widening the Atlantic Avenue sidewalk from the required 10 width to 15. Wider sidewalks were requested by SAFE and by Colony Hotel Owner/Manager Jestena Boughton. Later in the meeting, the developer also agreed to Jestenas request of planting live oak trees along Atlantic Avenue, 2. Adopting all of the Transportation Demand Management (TDM) initiatives recommended by SAFE, and adding some of their own: a. Free, high speed wireless system throughout the complex, a special telecommuting room so that residents will be able to telecommute from home, b. A parking way nder system that will identify vacant parking spaces, thereby eliminating the need of driving around trying to nd a parking space, c. Encouraging employers to apply for reduced Tri-Rail and Palm Tran for their employees and, d. An outreach program that will provide TDM info and support for both residents and employees. The TDM initiatives recommended by SAFE and adopted by the developer include: a. The applicant will work with the city of Delray Beach and TDM experts to include features in the project that will minimize the trafc load on Atlantic Avenue, particularly as it may impact the trafc at the Atlantic Avenue Bridge, and north of NE 1 Street on 7 Avenue, b. The applicant will encourage the city to utilize the previously agreed $150,000 shuttle funding to improve service, reduce wait time, and expand service beyond what exists today, c. The applicant consulted with TDM experts on initiatives which could be imple mented by Atlantic Crossing; and, hosted a meeting with these experts and other interested parties, d. The applicant will implement an employee transportation program that offers nancial incentives for employees to use alternative means of transportation, e. The applicant will support trafc improvements at NE 1 Street and NE 6 Avenue and NE 1 Street and NE 7 Avenue that are designed and endorsed by the adjacent community and the city of Delray to mitigate any increased trafc in this area associated with the project re-development. In the event it is determined by those parties that a new trafc signal and right turn on red lane at NE First and NE 6 Avenue is appropriate and desired and assuming sufcient right of way exists to accommodate such a right turn on red lane, the developer agrees to pay for these. Similarly if a determination is made to close 7 Avenue north of NE 1 Street, the developer agrees to pay for closure not to exceed $20,000. (Note: during last nights meeting the City Commission added the 7 Avenue street closing as a condition of approval, without cost limitations.), f. The applicant will work with SAFE, Delray and FDOT to maximize pedestrian safe crossing of Atlantic Avenue between NE 6 Avenue and Veterans Park, g. The applicant will, in addition to public bike racks placed throughout the project site, provide both tenant and employee inside bicycle storage facilities. Employee facilities will also include lockers and showers, h. The applicant will include a bicycle sharing program, and explore car sharing so that residents who do not own a bicycle or a car will have the use of either on a short term basis, and i. The applicant will unbundle parking so that residents who dont own a car will pay less rent than those who own a car. 3. Donating $500,000 to the City for upgrading Veterans Park. After Edwards completed his presentation, it was time for citizens comments. And they did. And, the City Commission listened. Then, it was time for questions and comments from the City Commissioners. Commission Gray questioned whether the project could be reduced further to 40 du/ac and that the number of efciencies be reduced. Commissioner Adam Frankel also asked about a reduction to 40 du/ac. Commissioner Al Jacquet complimented Edwards for reaching out to the neighbors, and asked for lower density, and encouraged the developer to continue meeting with the neighbors. Mayor Woody McDufe spoke the longest of all going into the history of the project, and the vital need for downtown Class A ofce space. In closing his comments, McDufe asked the developer if they could agree, then and there, to a reduction to 40 du/ac. Edwards said yes. The Commission next reached out to the Palm Trail and Marina District residents to formally add two additional conditions of approval that were asked for: closing NE 7 Avenue north of NE 1 Street, and trafc calming for the Marina District. The vote was almost anticlimactic. The project was approved, and Atlantic Crossing goes next to the Site Plan Review and Appearance Board. In summary, the approval was a win for the primary stakeholders from Palm Trail & the Marina District, a win for the City, a win for all the other Delray Beach residents and taxpayers, and a win for the developers. Of course, no one got everything they wanted. Those who threatened a lawsuit should reconsider their action. There were many sacrices made by all. Thats just one of the things that makes Delray Beach special. Now is the time for healing, and moving on. Thats the Delray Beach way! When fully built, SAFE believes Atlantic Crossing will be a model, the rst of many future developments (the second will be Sofa Buildings 1 & 2) that will embrace TDM initiatives. When that happens, our downtown will have more people walking and bicycling resulting in fewer trafc trips than would otherwise occur. Does anyone object to more people walking and bicycling, and fewer trafc trips? Lets all take time to applaud ourselves. Democracy is alive and well in Delray Beach.GUEST COMMENTARY: Atlantic Crossing Update Executive Editor/PublisherJeffrey Diaz 561-299-1430 jd@delraypineapple.comCommunity RelationsGene Fisher 561-414-5067 gene@delraypineapple.comDirector of MarketingRyan Boylston 954-415-1895 ryan@delraypineapple.comFor Editorial:call: (561) 299-1430 e-mail: info@delraypineapple.comContributing WritersRigel Herman Stephanie Immelman Julia Kadel Kurt Lehmann Suzanna Mahler Ash Otocki Jamie Salen Ellen Thistle Drew TuckerDistribution561-299-1430 Info@delraypineapple.comPublished byThe Delray Beach Pineapple, LLC.455 NE 5th Avenue, Suite D-151 Delray Beach, Florida 33483 561 299 1430The Delray Beach Pineapple is published monthly and distributed to over 175 locations throughout the Downtown Delray Beach Area.

The Delray Beach Pineapple BIG BUSINESS GOES ALL-IN FOR CHARITY RAISING ALMOST $300KDELRAY BEACH, FL Over 120 business leaders and corporate executives from all over South Florida and beyond came together November 29th in the renowned Cathedral Room at the Boca Raton Resort & Club for the premiere of Havana Nights. This high-stakes poker tournament raised nearly $300,000 for the Achievement Centers for Children & Families. Sultry Havana nights provided an alluring backdrop for the six-hour, rst-time event presented by Kolter Kast Construction. The night of calls, bluffs and ops featured a cocktail reception, a professionally ofciated poker tournament and the much enjoyed runway show featuring swimsuits by Bika and lingerie fashions by Lingerini all in the name of charity. Some lofty players left the game with nothing more than slightly bruised egos but were still in good spirits knowing they truly made a difference in the lives of the 700 lowincome children and families. Either by skill or luck, the top ten players made it to the nal championship table. Seven of them walked away with a cigar package from Prime Cigar & Wine Bar and a bottle of spirits from Union Restaurant. The top three winners raked in valuable prizes with the rst place winner taking home almost $10,000. Second place winner Michael Del Gigante, President of MDG Advertising and long-time partner of the Achievement Centers, was so moved by the success of the occasion that he graciously donated his prize back to the charity. The rst time I visited the Achievement Centers for Children & Families I was overwhelmed by the children, the programs and the compassion exhibited by the staff, said Michael Del Gigante, It was a truly uplifting experience. Its no surprise that the outpouring of support and funds raised at the Havana Nights Poker event reached this level. I look forward to winning rst place next year. We were incredibly fortunate to have had so many corporate supporters not only contributing to the success of the event but also bringing a greater awareness of who we are and what we do, stated Stephanie Seibel, Executive Director of the Achievement Centers Foundation, This is the highest revenue-generating fundraiser in our 43-year history. We could not have accomplished such a feat without the dedication and leadership of our co-chairs, Bobby Julien and Christine King, and the driving force of the team at Kolter Kast Construction. This premiere event was made possible with the commitment of more than 30 companies in South Florida that went all-in, particularly the top sponsors including Kolter Kast Construction, Gunster Law Firm, Interstate Hotels & Resorts, Moen, Regions Bank, White & Case, and Hyatt.The ve-hour Texas Holdem tournament culminated at the nal round where the ten nalists competed for top prizes and ultimate bragging rights.

Hyatt Place to host/sponsor Wellfest Delray 2013New LEED certied hotel in the heart of Delray Beach gets behind new wellness eventDELRAY BEACH, FL Hyatt Place, which opened in the Pineapple Grove area of Delray Beach in 2012 knows a thing or two about creating a Wellness environment. So it was no surprise that this beautiful addition to downtown Delray Beach jumped at the chance of hosting and sponsoring the rst-ever WellFest Delray Event. As a LEED-Certied (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) hotel, Hyatt Place Delray Beach is part of the green movement that recognizes the need to provide healthy, comfortable, and productive indoor environments with improved air quality, access to daylight, and other eco-friendly practices and controls, states Tessa Hodge, Director of Sales. When we heard about WellFest Delray, we welcomed the chance to become the host hotel and one of the sponsors. Delray Beach, a popular Florida destination is also home to a growing number of businesses and residents who are embracing an active, health-oriented lifestyle where tness, good nutrition, a positive mind-set and wellness-ingeneral is a way of life. WellFest Delray, an event created by Bob Lipp, a marketing executive with a long-time interest in the tness lifestyle and supported by area residents including former Mayor Jeff Perlman and wellness proponents Julia Kadel and Sara Sloan will be held at the Delray Center for the Arts Old School Square gymnasium and surrounding areas on Thursday, March 7, 2013 Wellness is an all-encompassing term, which speaks to a lifestyle that recognizes the importance of staying t, eating right, staying positive, planning ahead and protecting the environment, said Lipp. Those qualities dene much of what Ive seen in Delray; and are amplied by the impressive Hyatt Place Delray, which ts in beautifully within this community. With WellFest Delray 2013 still about three months away, the number of exhibitors who have already commitment has been impressive.

Funds to be used to purchase books for summer reading programThe City of Delray Beachs Campaign for Grade Level Reading received a $5,000 donation to purchase books for the Citys 2013 summer reading program. This donation, from AmTrust Bank, will provide each kindergarten and 1st grade student attending Orchard View and Pine Grove Elementary Schools with a Reading Pack that includes 5 to 8 high-quality and engaging books and individually created activity sheets to enhance the at-home learning experience. Putting a book in a childs hands over the summer provides an opportunity to prevent the summer learning slide and promote academic success. Research suggests that by providing access to books at home, in school, and over the summer months contributes to improving the reading achievement levels among all children, stated Janet Meeks, Education Coordinator for the City of Delray Beach. The Citys Campaign for Grade Level Reading, which is part of a national campaign to promote grade level reading by the third grade, was created through the understanding that our local schools alone cannot address all of the problems that keep our children from learning to read. As a result, the City partnered with a coalition of community, civic and business leaders, non-prot agencies, educators and City representatives who believed in this important issue and committed to participating in the development and implementation of a new reading initiative that will benet our local children and our community. Brian Lynott, Regional Executive and First Vice President of AmTrust Bank in Delray Beach, learned about the shortage of reading material through discussions with the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. He saw and understood the need to enable children to have access to books over the summer and coordinated AmTrust Banks contribution to the Citys reading program.

This year promises to be a great one in the Delray Beach music scene, and we plan to keep you up to date with all of the movers and shakers by proling one of their Delray Beach shows, as well as the artists themselves. We will also be getting back to helping you pick the best music for your tastes, for your night out on the town. To kick it off we wanted to give you a quick update on what some of last years featured artists have been up to since we interviewed them last. Rachel Andes When we last spoke to Rachel, she was getting ready to launch the second act in her already successful music career. She has since recorded her rst jazz album, performed to a sold out crowd at Arts Garage, and at Delray Beach Center for the Arts, and is recording her CD of originals in Nashville, TN.

Eric Biddines After we left off in February, Eric had just released the Southern FLA mixtape & the Southern FLA video. Since then Eric has focused on big success by making small constant steps day in and day out. Ive focused on a idea I came up with called Molding My Audience. It keeps me ahead of myself because I only do what I want my fans and followers to accept, Eric says, so Ive put deep thought into making all of my projects, releases and shows, an individual and completely different experience. Eric went on to release an EP titled, The Frozen Lake, produced entirely by a local producer by the name of J-Sharp. Recorded during the time he was nishing Southern FLA, he released physical copies for free, exclusively at shows and on iTunes. Eric has began taking an even deeper emphasis on merchandise & apparel, selling coffee cups, shirts, sweaters, chains and more. Since we last spoke hes released a collaborative project and a couple more videos since the Southern FLA. Now in the nal stages of planetcoffeebean 2, his second full studio LP, Eric is ready to take the next step for his fans.

He is still doing those things, but in addition, he is the steady keyboard player for the Dirty Heads, and has been touring with them since October.

PAGE 38 The Delray Beach Pineapple The bubbly was owing at Arts Garage when it was announced they had won both the $30,000 Knight Arts Challenge Award and the $20,000 Knight Arts Challenge Peoples Choice award. These amazing achievements mean the good times will get even better at this outstanding cultural venue, and January promises to set the tone for an outstanding New Year! In the short amount of time since the Arts Garage opened, it has garnered a big local following. The strength of its programming was reected by the fact that so many people supported it for the rst ever Peoples Choice Award for up-and-coming organizations, said Dennis Scholl, Vice-President of Arts for the Knight Foundation. These awards assist us in continuing and expanding our incredible programming, said Alyona Ushe, Executive Director of Arts Garage. And we are kicking off the year in style. Ushe is particularly excited about the caliber of performances coming up. We are having Bob Margolin, who is one of the last remaining members of the Muddy Waters band. This show is going to be an amazing experience. Margolin literally learned with the best. In 1973, I went to see Muddy at Pauls Mall in Boston, he recalled. He had seen me in opening bands and had been very encouraging to me because I was trying to play his style of Old School (Muddys term) Chicago Blues. He had just lost long-time guitarist Sammy Lawhorn and he hired me to play in his band. While most musicians in modern times learn from listening to recordings, Muddy put me on his right side on the bandstand so I could watch him play guitar. I sure appreciated that opportunity while it was happening, and tried to use it to learn to give Muddy what he wanted on the bandstand, and for myself. Another legend hitting Arts Garage stage is Randy Brecker who has been shaping the sound of Jazz, R&B and Rock for more than four decades. His trumpet and ugelhorn performances have graced hundreds of albums by a wide range of artists including James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Parliament Funkadelic, Frank Sinatra, SteelyDan, David Sanborn, Jaco Pastorius, Horace Silver and Frank Zappa, said Ushe. His show will be sensational! But Jazz and Blues greats are not the only draws this month, Theatre at Arts Garage brings their second production, Gloucester Blue by renowned playwright Israel Horoviz to the stage. Gloucester Blue is a black comedy about a man who returns home after a long absence and encounters all manner of indelities and murders, said Ushe. It was written multiaward winning playwright Israel Horovitz. Horovitz has written over 70 produced plays and his screenplay for the lm, Author!, Author!, starring Al Pacino was largely autobiographical. We presented a reading of this play during our festival last year, and it was such a success that we decided to add it to this seasons repertoire, she said. Its not to be missed! Ushe is also thrilled to announce two special complimentary community events: an open house for the Performing Arts Academy at Arts Garage featuring a meet and greet with the talented teachers and a performance by the Academys own student band, the Grease Monkeys. This will be followed by an Arts Garage Open House hosted by the Arts Garage Guild, where guests will sample an artistic menu along with wine and hors doeuvres. These events are wonderful opportunities to see what Arts Garage is offering and to learn about getting involved with this growing and dynamic part of our community, said Ushe.

PAGE 44 The Delray Beach Pineapple DELRAY BEACH, FL Voted the number one beach town, an arts and cultural hub, located between the sexy city of Miami and affluent Palm Beach, Delray Beach will also be known for being the birthplace of the new first-of-its-kind supplement brand Beauty Bumps. Beauty Bumps GROW is a revolutionary hair TREAT mint Supplement YOU EAT. Formulated with the highest quality, carefully selected, all natural and vegan ingredients, Beauty Bumps GROW is clinically shown to increase your hair growth 42%. Its a dietary beauty supplement that tastes like a mint that you eat to grow your hair! Delray Beach residents and local salon owners Peter and Mark Hasche De Rosa (PeterMark Salon) teamed up over a year ago with Erin Heit, marketing guru of Glacau Vitaminwater, FUZE and Celsius, to collaborate on a project that would forever change the supplement and salon industries. The partners have been salon owners for over nine years and each has over 15 years in the industry. They realized clients were becoming more educated about what they put into their bodies and how it was affecting their appearance. Salon clients were turning to their hair professionals to ask what they needed to take in order to achieve their beauty goals. Soon thereafter, they turned to their longtime friend, and now business partner, Erin Heit, for her business and marketing advice. Ms. Heit immediately realized they had identified a huge opportunity for their salon and for salons across the globe. Ms. Heit, at the time, was immersed in the supplement industry and learning that the Beauty from Within category was the industrys fastest growing. However, there was a huge lack of innovation and marketable brands to deliver such supplements. They all agreed they could each contribute their strengths and develop the right brand, at the right time, and in the right channel of trade. And that is when their company Salon Supplements was established, and immediate work on a unique brand was begun. This team of young entrepreneurial innovators has launched their first brand Beauty Bumps GROW. The ingredients in Beauty Bumps GROW work together in giving your body what it needs to support hair growth, as well as multiple other beauty benefits. Beauty Bumps GROW works using four main actions: primary causes of hair loss follicle which is essential to healthy hair the body Beauty Bumps GROW is available at PeterMark Salon and will be available at several other select high-end salons.

All of this, at your ngertips, in Downtown Delray Beach, Florida.Q: What is a Keratin treatment and can a color and a Keratin Treatment both be done on the same day?A: Keratin is found in all areas of the body including skin, hair, nails and teeth. When it comes to your hair, damaged keratin will look dry and brittle. Keratin treatments protect and smooth hair shafts by coating the hair follicle. The cortex (second layer of hair) is changed after the bonds of keratin are applied. Keratin is used to change the structure of the hair on the inside of the shaft and then bonds and locks into place on the outside of the hair follicle. The Keratin is up to an 80% frizz reducer and 20% curl reducer. Hair should be colored either the day of the Keratin Treatment or any time after the hair is colored. If you choose to color your hair prior to the Keratin Treatment, we recommend you wait at least 2 weeks before the Treatment is done. You may ask yourself, how long do I have to wait to wash my hair after the Keratin Treatment is done? 3 days is the minimum time you can go with a leave-in conditioner. On the 4th day, use a rinse out conditioner. If your hair gets wet during the 3 day waiting period, you should blow dry and at iron your hair immediately and contact your stylist as soon as possible to make sure you have not reversed the effects of your treatment. If you plan on getting your hair cut, the color should be done before the Treatment is applied, followed by the cut afterwards. Keratin Treatment usually last for 3-5 months depending on care. You can usually do another treatment after 2-3 months. You should never get a Keratin treatment when you are pregnant and childrens hair should not be treated. A Keratin Treatment usually costs $200 $450, depending on length and density of your hair. If you have further questions, contact a licensed professional prior to getting any services done to your hair. Once applied, its hard to reverse any damage that may have occurred. Question: New Year is coming and Im thinking of skipping my yearly crash diet where I lose 15 pounds and put on 20 by March. What are your thoughts on News Years Resolutions and am I doomed? Answer: Yes, you probably are doomed to repeat last years failure in the weight loss department. But have no fear! Nothing is lost! Of course you can have a successful New Years resolution, you just need a better approach. Im not that excitable about New Years resolutions. Obviously, as an advice columnist, I see value in self-help. On the other hand, limiting that self-help to once a year, encouraged by the guilt of gym ad hard bodies and gluttony, is destructive to actually achieving the results a New Years Resolution is intended for. Failure seems to occur more frequently when the resolutions take the lose 15 pounds form, a kind of black-and-white, nish-line sort of goal. Rather than trying something specic and unreasonable like No drinking before noon until Easter, it is more sensible to establish guidelines to reach more general goals such as, be friendlier to my family. We dont live in a black-and-white, nish-line world, despite appearances. Life is a process and you are a human being. Addressing your goal, you will likely be down on yourself until you lose the 15 pounds, drinking kale juice, watching TV on an elliptical, and counting pounds. But once the weight is lost, where do you go? Youre fteen lighter, you feel successful, youre hot to trot, but then it sinks in that maybe it sucked to get there and now its easy to slack on the miserable-ness you endured to cross the nish-line. The trick is to establish routines and habits that you can live with, accept your shortcomings and fallibility without punishing yourself, and turn your resolution into a lifestyle. Go for a salad at dinner, but dont get mad at yourself if you have some cheesecake, that stuff is good. Set short-term goals (go for three runs this week for example) that are achievable and facilitate your journey towards the person you want to be. Try and make more good decisions towards your routine then bad ones. And be Patient. Depending on what you want, realize this is a process. My most successful resolution, based upon this system, was three years ago. It was: Improve Personal Hygiene. An admirable goal for a guy occasionally inconsiderate of his neighbors. Dont be under the impression that I am, or ever was, monstrous. But a missed shower post bike ride pre-bar hop, avoidance of hand sanitizer, or the use of friends toothbrushes (if at all) have occurred. Failure would have been a nish-line goal such as Have a beautiful smile by Valentines Day. Impossible. But, I started ossing regularly until it became weird when I forgot to, and if I thought, should I de-odorize? Should I shampoo? Is it a bad idea to wear this shirt again? I would generally answer that question afrmatively and try to follow through. Am I paradigm of germ free living? Absolutely not. Am I above average in the sanitation department? Sure thing, ladies. Thats when resolutions work, when they become consistent life long habits, thus eliminating the need to re-hash the same, tired nish-line every year. But the backsliding sure can be fun, pink eye anyone? Send along any questions about life to, it is better than consulting Johnny Walker. . .

The Delray Beach Pineapple dine out By Kay Renz Special to The Pineapple For most restaurateurs when a new establishment opens across the street, they consider it competition. But not Joseph Boueri. The owner of Josephs Wine Bar and Caf in Pineapple Grove was excited to see Bistro 241 recently open, because the owner is his son Elie. We love Pineapple Grove and when the space on the other side of 2nd Avenue opened, I was thrilled that Elie decided to create his own establishment there, said Joseph. There is great synergy between our restaurants. I have been in business for five years, and Elie worked here during that time, and got to know both the business and our guests. Now, we can offer them two different experiences. And while our concepts are different, we both focus on serving incredible food and treating our guests as family, And being part of the Boueri family is a good thing. The tight-knit LebaneseAmerican clan, which also includes Josephs wife Margaret, a chef trained in the south of France, and his daughter Romy, who manages the bar, have lived in Europe and Canada, but they came to South Florida a few years ago and fell in love with Delray Beach. I had been in the banking industry for years, said Joseph. But a while back, I became involved with restaurant management. I really enjoyed it and since my wife was a chef and I loved to cook as well, we thought we would create intimate space where we would entertain our guests just like they were our family. In 2008, they opened an elegant and romantic seven table restaurant in Pineapple Grove. The private dining room ambiance includes beautiful chandeliers, granite tables, 2000 wine bottles lining the wall and a lovely granite bar. The four family members ran everything, with Joseph and Margaret creating incredible continental dishes with Middle Eastern inuences, while Elie and Romy waited on the guests and helped them select wines which run in price from $30 to $20,000 a bottle. During the past ve years, Josephs has garnered an array of critical kudos from guests and reviewers alike who praise he and his wifes personalized renditions of lobster bisque, tabouli salad, rack of lamb, baklava and a variety of nightly specials. I learned so much from my years working with my family at Josephs that I wanted to expand and grow, said Elie, who holds a degree in engineering. Bistro 241 showcases American/Mediterranean dishes, seats 100 and offers a full service bar. But our philosophy of how we treat our guests is the I am so grateful to be able to open my restaurant here in Pineapple Grove right across from my Dads place, said Elie. I own several properties on the block, and I feel this is a dynamic, exciting, fun area of Delray. I am a tremendous advocate of how we are growing this section of our community, and I am thrilled to be a part of it. Josephs Wine Bar and Caf: Bistro 241: Great Food: Its All in the Family!
