The total cost of this project ($110,660.00) will be funded by the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. Construction is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. Paver tree grates are used to help integrate trees in urban settings by covering the entire planting area and allowing a safe walking environment for pedestrians. Tree bases are not visible and planting plots remain level with sidewalks and streets, avoiding concrete buckling and/or drainage issues. After testing several products, City staff recommended Flex-Pave material because it is an eco-friendly, porous pavement that allows water and fertilizer to permeate through to tree roots. In addition, this product is strong, puncture-resilient and resistant to cracking and various chemicals. City staff will begin excavating tree wells, removing existing tree grate material and root prune where appropriate. Electrical and irrigation adjustments will be made as needed. Rock base levels will be installed to current bricks to avoid potential tripping hazards. Flex-Pave tree grate material will be installed within three weeks of excavating and work will be completed in phases as follows: 1. Atlantic Avenue from Swinton Avenue to NE/SE 5th Avenue ( 2. Atlantic A venue from NE/SE 5th Avenue to A1A ( 3. Atlantic A venue from Swinton Avenue to NW/SW 12th Avenue ( 4. Pineapple Grove Arts District It is estimated that 2-3 phases will be completed prior to the Thanksgiving season. Please note that during construction, sidewalks may be closed and/or have limited access. Pedestrians are requested to use caution when walking in these areas.

The 16-year-old beat out hundreds of other Florida teens on her way to winning the title of Miss Florida Junior Teen. The South State of Floridas National American Miss pageant was held July 20-21 in Miami, Florida. With her win, Rebecca received cash prizes, the ofcial state crown and banner, a VIP day at Disneyland, and a complimentary trip to the National American Miss competition in Hollywood, California this November. There she will compete against hundreds of Miss Junior Teen state winners from around the country for the title of National American Miss Junior Teen Queen, including the Miss North Florida Junior Teen winner, Haley Asofsky. The entire pageant experience was eye opening to me, said Rebecca. I am thrilled to have this opportunity and I am excited to bring exposure to my platform charity Little Smiles, learn more about the entertainment industry, and represent the sunshine state as Miss Florida Junior Teen. The National American Miss Pageant is based on inner beauty as well as poise and presentation. Its founders say emphasis is put on the importance of developing self-condence, learning good sportsmanship, as well as setting and achieving personal goals. The State of Florida competition was divided into the following areas: beauty and poise, personal introduction, as well as seven individual interviews with the judges. In addition, contestants, including Rebecca, were recognized in a number of other categories, including Miss Personality, Volunteer Service, Talent and more. Despite being new to the pageant arena, Rebecca impressed the judges with her personality, casual wear, spirit, and acting skills winning awards in each of those classications. Rebeccas talent during the competition included playing the ukulele and singing. While singing comes natural for the high school junior, who has performed in numerous plays and theater productions, playing the Hawaii-born ukulele is not. Always up for a challenge, Rebecca taught herself to play the small string instrument only months before the Miss Florida Junior Teen pageant and performed it with ease. One of Rebeccas more important responsibilities as Miss Florida Junior Teen is to be involved with and champion a charity of her choice. Rebecca has already started partnering with the Florida-based Little Smiles charity, a local organization dedicated to children, which she chose as her campaign platform. Little Smiles is a non-prot volunteer organizations based in Florida that provides toys, movies, computers, celebrity meet-and-greets, concert and sporting event tickets, theme park trips, junk food runs, and much more to children in local hospitals, hospices and shelters throughout Florida. Through the charity, Rebecca has already had the opportunity to spend time at the Miami Childrens Hospital with some of the young patients, Virginia from the KVJ radio show, deliver pizza to the nurses, and shoot Nerf guns with the kids!

She continued, I know I am partial, but [St. Pauls Day School] is a rare bastion of an old fashioned notion of treating each other with love and compassion and making learning a lifelong passion. Its not about testing or getting children to learn things ahead of their developmental readiness. This exceptional school anywhere else would be expensive and exclusive, but because of its mission, it keeps it affordable for all. Over the years, families from the beach to West Delray, Highland Beach and Lake Worth have traveled the distance to come to this special little school.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 7 FOCUS ON COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS: BACK TO SCHOOL BASHDELRAY BEACH, FL Just before school bells pealed in South Palm Beach County, the spirit of the community rang out loud and clear. The annual Back to School Bash held at the Village Academy in Delray Beach provided nearly 3000 local children the opportunity to begin school with all the new supplies they needed to start the school year ready to learn. The Spirit of Giving Network, a nonprot organization with a focus on children and families in South Palm Beach County, received tremendous support from partners including The Order of St. John Commandery of Florida, The Jim Moran Foundation, Schmidt Family Foundation, The PBC Ofce of Community Revitalization, and the Palm Beach County Sheriffs ofce for the 2013 Back to School event. The Ofce Depot Foundation donated 1500 sack-packs that were lled with healthy snacks provided by the Palm Beach County Food Bank and Nurture via Nature. 1600 pairs of shoes were distributed thanks to the In Jacobs Shoes Foundation. The bleachers of Village Academy were completely lled with new and gently used shoes and the children picked out their perfect pair, with the help of their own personal shopper. Children also received free haircuts courtesy of the Florida Career College and Florida Barber College. And, the Epilepsy Foundation donated 100 bike helmets as volunteers assisted students to get just the right t. With the leadership of Jan Dymtrow, community outreach coordinator for the Boca Raton Regional Hospital, a fantastic Family Health Carnival was created providing a mammogram van, blood tests, biometric health screenings, hearing testing and health related resources. The hospital provided fun events for the children with sno cones, popcorn and building projects were courtesy of The Home Depot. Over 1400 vision screenings were performed with the help of Dr. Kohl and staff of Eye Associates of Boca Raton. To assist parents, over 30 local resource agencies were on hand with information and one on one help. The Corner Bakery, Way Beyond Bagel, Kennesaw Juice, Mellow Mushroom and Boca Raton Regional Hospital Cafeteria Volunteers supplied over 300 volunteers with breakfast and/or lunch. A special Thank You goes to Southern Sanitation, Festival Flea Market, Kids Safe Foundation, Iberia Bank, Daszkal Bolton, BarCharts and the many additional community partners that helped over 30 non-prot agencies supply their families with essential school supplies. This collaborative approach serves our community very effectively and insures that children return to school with all the tools they need to succeed in the year ahead. The Spirit of Giving Network brings non-prot organizations and communities together to share resources and knowledge to improve the lives of children, families and individuals.Plumosa School of the Arts takes on fund-raising project!Last year, festival organizers for the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce Wine & Seafood Festival, were looking for ways to have local non-prot organizations fund-raise at the festival. Organizers (Festival Management Group who also run the successful Delray Beach Garlic Fest) wanted to incorporate the same fund-raising principles into the Chambers Wine & Seafood Festival as they have at the Garlic Fest. So they signed up two groups: Park Vista School and Atlantic High Eagle-ettes. These groups staffed the two large wine gardens and worked for tips for their organizations, with combined earnings of over $4,000! With all the corks that were saved from last years event we decided to put out a call to individuals, local bars and restaurants to start saving their corks. The result was THOUSANDS of corks! Our next step was to engage a local school to adopt the project! Plumosa School of the Arts accepted the challenge and their students crafted items from these donated corks to sell at the Wine and Seafood Festival. Items will include holiday ornaments, holiday decor, corks boards, and more! Michaels Delray Beach has also partnered with them and hosted a Family Funday on September 15th. The Delray Beach Public Library will host a second Family Funday event on Sunday, October 6th! The Plumosa School of the Arts aftercare program is also involved with the project as students will create items after school (after their homework is done). PTA mom, Amy Dunson-Alvarez says, This opportunity is more than perfect for Plumosa School of the Arts, which is a Green school, as it combines creativity with recycling by repurposing corks and other items! The Family Funday events also provide an opportunity for families to be involved together in this event. Plumosa School of the Arts is thankful and excited for this opportunity and appreciate all of the support provided!. Proceeds from the sales at the Festival will go towards supporting the Arts Department for items such as dance costumes, instruments, art supplies, and more! Make sure to stop by their booth. The 2nd Annual Delray Beach Wine & Seafood Festival is Nov. 9 & 10, 2013, located on East Atlantic Ave. beginning at the intracoastal bridge. Sat., 11am-10pm/ Sun., 11am-7pm.

AGAIN For the second year in a row, South Techs Commercial Art Academy has come in rst place in the Loggerhead Societies Turtle Design Competition. Within 4 short weeks, the South Tech students worked diligently to come up with a worthy theme and to make their vision come to life. Toby the Turtle is truly a shinning symbol for the conservation message that the Loggerhead Society wants to portray. From a plain berglass turtle to a beautiful statue of a newly hatched turtle among debris, our class displayed constant dedication and great teamwork said senior Weberton LaPierre. In order to create Toby, the students needed to learn new ways to paint, sculpt, work with plaster, bondo, and many other materials. They needed to master time management as well. Using textured paint and even color changing spray paint, found art, and A LOT of plaster, South Tech really managed to raise the bar and bring to light a real challenge for todays turtles, A diamond being born in a sea of debris. Now the Graphic Design students can expand their marketability with the new experience that they have gained said Senior Dariell Bethel. When it comes to meaningful art, it all really comes down to trial and error but in the end, it truly paid off. Some of the very proud students even went as far as saying that contributing in the creation of Toby was the best work theyve done in a long time and that this project was one of the most fun they ever competed in. Adam Fiveson, the teacher at South Tech couldnt be happier with the results. I think we won because of the emotional content of the work. All the schools made beautiful designs. I think we just managed to touch the voters hearts and minds. Of course, the win is nice but the prize is even better. The South Tech students will hopefully continue their winning streak with the art supplies that will be bought with the $1500 cash prize. schools education Cynthia Freedman of In Jacobs Shoes LOCAL STUDENTS HELP PACK MEALS FOR CHILDREN IN HAITI KIDS CARE FOOD PACKING EVENTDELRAY BEACH, FL Local Palm Beach County students helped pack 50,000 nutritious meals for Haitian students on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at St. Pauls Episcopal Church in Delray Beach. Giving up their Saturday mornings of team sports and play, they worked together with over 300 volunteers to pack and seal individually wrapped vitamin fortied meals of rice and beans from 9:00 am 1:30 pm at the Kids Care Food Packing event. Our after school program students were ready and willing to pitch in and help. Many of our students are from Haitian backgrounds and it means so much to them to be able to feed needy children in Haiti. states Kathy Fazio, Director of Pauls Place at St. Pauls. Chris Pasquale, St. Pauls Youth Leader said, Children and adults from the ages of 5 to 80 volunteered for a 90 minute shift, carefully measuring the dry ingredients for the rice and bean casseroles, which are nutritionally balanced to meet recommended dietary guidelines and taste great. Next they labeled, sealed and packed each meal. The 50,000 meals were shipped to Haiti to provide 4,000 students with one month of healthy, hot meals. Rev. Kathleen Gannon, St. Pauls Episcopal Church, said Our partner Outreach, Inc. has many years of proven experience in packing meals and shipping them around the world. Outreach founders Floyd Hammer and Kathy Hamilton were honored at the White House by Presidents Obama and George H. W. Bush at the July 15th, 2013 Points of Light ceremony. A team of 40 students volunteered from Toussaint LOveture High School for Arts and Social Justice, Delray Beach. When asked why their students participated in this event, Founder Major Joe Bernadel stated, To educate the children of the current needs in Haiti. To encourage them to participate in supporting Haiti, now and in the future, after they graduate. Various community groups were involved in this one day project including local children who are currently in a homeless situation and staying with Family Promise of South Palm Beach County. Kokie Dinnan, Family Promise Executive Director said, Family Promise was excited to help others in need. Our families embrace the opportunity to show their gratitude for the help they are receiving by participating in this important project of feeding 4,000 students. Here is how it worked: Volunteers packed and sealed 50,000 rice and bean casseroles to be shipped to Haiti for the children of St. Marie Madeleine and seven other Episcopal Schools in the area, from Leogane to Bondeau. It took about 350 volunteers, working in shifts throughout the morning, to pack the food at St. Pauls. Collaborating with St Andrews Episcopal Church in Miami, a similar food packing program will be sponsored by them on October 19, 2013. The 50,000 meals packed at their event will also be shipped to Haiti and feed the same population. In all 100,000 meals will be shipped to feed over 4,000 school children. This means each child will have a hot lunch for two months. For information on St Pauls Kids Care Food Packing Event go to: www.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 11 Monthly Breast Self-Exam (BSE)By Carlos Eduardo Ramrez, MD Special to The Pineapple Performing a breast self-examination is not complicated or time consuming. Incorporate it as part of your monthly routine. To perform the BSE: remove clothing above the waist and observe both breasts in a mirror; study changes in the feel or appearance of the skin on the breast or nipple (dimpled, creased, aky, or inamed); check for the presence of bloody or clear uid discharge from the nipples or redness of the skin on the breast or nipple; observe any difference of the breasts, asymmetry. Then lie down with your arm above your head, so your breast tissue spreads evenly over your chest wall and is as thin as possible, making it easier to palpate. Using the pads of your ngers of your left hand, check your right breast. Then, use your right hand to palpate your left breast. Move your ngers slowly in small circles to detect any unusual lumping. Using another method, you may also check while in the shower. Wet ngers slide easily across the breast and may help you detect a change: place one arm over your head and lightly soap your right breast; using the at surface of your ngers, gently move your hand over your breast feeling for any lumps or thickened areas; Check the armpit and work down to the bottom of the bra line. Move one ngerwidth toward the middle and work up to the collarbone. Repeat until you have covered the entire breast. Repeat for your left breast.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 13 Fix my depression now! This sucks. Everything sucks. What difference does it make anyways? These are just some of the thought patterns that are characteristic of an individual suffering from major depression. Depression does suck. Depression does make everything seem like it sucks and it makes people not care anymore. This common disorder can be a silent personal hell for some and a slow, agonizing death for others. So many people suffer from this yet, many of them go untreated. Many others desperately try to treat themselves by self-medicating with drugs or alcohol. The outcomes for these poor souls typically are bad, but they do not have to be. Major depression is a very treatable condition and can carry a favorable prognosis if managed properly. The rst step in treating depression is identication of symptoms and making an accurate diagnosis. Depression feels bad. Feeling bad may encompass any combination of a sad or depressed mood, low energy, low self-esteem, poor concentration, increased feelings of guilt, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, and a general slowing down of physical movement. A diminished capacity for enjoyment, especially with activities that would normally be pleasurable, is an especially telling sign. Emotional shifts including tearfulness and irritability are also frequently seen. This may all be further complicated by the use of alcohol or drugs in a desperate attempt to feel better. Any combination of these symptoms to any degree that affects happiness or the ability to function would indicate that some form of a mood disorder is present. A psychiatrist would be the physician specialist most skilled and qualied to make a specic diagnosis and give recommendations for treatment. Treatment for depression has come a long way. The holistic approach that treats the patient as a whole has grown in both popularity and effectiveness. Newer psychotherapies, vitamins, exercise therapy, nutrition, meditation, art, yoga, and acupuncture have all taken on a greater role. Patients no longer have to rely on just medication and basic psychotherapy. These elements are not denitive treatments in their own right, but when used in combination can be very powerful. Much of this benet is derived from affecting the human mind-body connection. What is done to the body will directly affect the human brain. Movement in the form of resistance training, yoga, and other forms of exercise have a signicant positive effect on brain chemicals. Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine, and Endorphins, among other brain chemicals, are all released in response to exercise. This gets a depressed brain moving in a way that is not easily replicated by other means. This can be one of the fastest rst steps to a recovery from depression. When physical activity becomes a permanent part of a persons life, it helps resist a depressive recurrence. Nutritional and vitamin therapies provide the fuel for exercise as well as the nutrients for optimal brain functioning. When the benets that can be derived from the body are optimized, the conditions are much more favorable for the human brain to derive benet from antidepressants and advanced psychotherapy. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, often referred to as DBT, is an advanced form of cognitive behavioral therapy that has changed the face of modern depression treatment. DBT teaches highly effective coping skills that help individuals deal with some of the most stressful elements of human existence. DBT skills are organized into 4 categories: Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotional Regulation, and Distress Tolerance. Mindfulness skills allow members learn to observe, describe and participate in thoughts, sensations, emotions and external phenomenon without judging these experiences as good or bad. Interpersonal effectiveness skills help participants successfully assert their needs and manage conict in their relationships. Emotional regulation skills help participants identify and manage emotional reactions in healthy and adaptive ways, reducing the negative emotional surge that may result from an adverse event. Distress tolerance skills allow members to accept and tolerate distress without resorting to negative or destructive behaviors. DBT has proven clinical effectiveness and has helped thousands. These tools are efciently taught and practiced in DBT skills groups. DBT skills group participation requires ongoing individual therapy, which another fundamental part of treatment. Individual therapy reinforces the learned skills and addresses the underlying issues. The combination of individual psychotherapy, DBT skills training, medications, and the holistic modalities of depression treatment help individuals achieve stronger clinical responses than just medications or basic therapy alone. These forms of treatment are best delivered in a cohesive manner in a structured program. A depressed life is at best a sad existence and at worst intolerable. Effective treatment for depression is available and the veil of sadness can be lifted. The depressed person needs only to ask for help. Dr. Rodriguez is the founder, CEO and Medical Director of the Delray Center For Healing, which offers a comprehensive depression treatment program that consists advanced medical treatment, DBT therapy and skills training, and holistic treatments. Delray Center For Healing 403 SE 1st Street, Delray Beach, FL 33483 888-699-5679 by Dr. Raul Rodriguez Imagine this, two people, one man and one woman, both work in the same company and have similar positions. Both have completely different personalities, professional styles and yet both are very high performing successful employees. Its true, meet Mike and Jen. Jen arrives at work every day fteen minutes early, dresses meticulously, thoroughly plans out her week and religiously follows up on each client and every prospect. Nothing satises Jen more than crossing something off her to do list. Plus, her clients know she will do the job as asked and deliver on all her promises. Her idea of fun is a yoga class, cleaning her house and then organizing her le cabinet. Mike on the other hand, struggles to get to work on time, often doesnt shave, has missed important conference calls and you can tell his shirts need some TLC from an iron. Yet, despite his corporate shortcomings, his clients love him just as much as Jens clients love her. They gladly send him referrals, often meet him for Happy Hour and even invite him for friendly rounds of golf. Mikes idea of fun is going to a football game, meeting friends for cocktails and having the occasional barbecue. Even though Mike and Jen are so vastly different, they both have honed their skills based on their strengths and personality traits. Mike and Jen are polar opposites, equally successful, happy, and most importantly, comfortable in their own skin. So how can two people in the same position, be so different and yet exceed expectations? Now, the student in me cant help but wonder what would happen if Mike took his appearance more seriously, showed up for meetings on time and tried to be more like Jen. On the ip-side, what if Jen lightened up a bit, had a little more fun and got to know her clients better like Mike? Would they be any better off? How about we take it one step further, what if they both shared each others good qualities, in addition to their own? Could someone actually adjust their personalities, leave their comfort zones and become this so called perfect kind of person? In my opinion, obviously it would be the best of both worlds, but not really possible. You cannot force a square peg into a round hole, it just wont t no matter how hard you try (and if you do try) good luck. Its a recipe for disaster. So, after observing these two unique employees for a while now (like a science project), I conclude that the secret to success in your job or personal life, is to discover what your real strengths are, work diligently at playing to them and not toward someone elses. Why should Mike try and be like Jen, and vice versa? Just a guess, but Im sure Mikes buddies wouldnt want him to discuss desk organization techniques at a football game, and I am sure a barbecue invite at a yoga class will get Jen plenty of invites to future holistic gatherings. Whether it is at work, in a relationship, or even playing in a band, exploring different aspects of yourself is great as long as it feels right. It seems to work just ne for Mike and Jen. Ironically, and heres the unexpected twist to my story, Mike and Jen have been happily dating for nine months, and what makes them work so far is what attracted them to each other in the rst place. They know exactly who they are and dont pretend to be anybody else. With that being said, I will leave you with some words of wisdom from one of our great philosophers: I am what I am Popeye.

14 October 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple health & tness One of my most recent new patients was 11 days old when she rst came to the ofce. She wasnt sick, but the babys grandmother, my pilates instructor, emailed me about 3 months before her birth, asking me if I would check her spine after she was born. She wanted to make sure she wasnt Subluxated. I did check her and found the rst bone in her neck was slightly out of alignment, putting pressure on her brainstem, part of her central nervous system. I proceeded to give her a gentle Chiropractic adjustment to remove the nerve interference, and allow nerve energy to ow optimally. She was Subluxated, like many newborns, as a result of trauma during the birth process. So what is a Subluxation? And why is it so scary? A Subluxation is when a vertebra is out of alignment, interfering with the nerve energy ow from the brain to all the organs, tissues and cells of the body. That includes the heart, lungs, stomach, skin, eyes, ears, everywhere! It even affects the immune system, emotions, and your energy level. Imagine theres a beautiful mountain with clear crystal water at the top. feeding in its rivers and streams all the plants and animals of the mountainside. You have a ourishing environment. Now further imagine a dam is placed at the top of the mountain, blocking the water from giving life to all the inhabitants. All the plants, trees, animals would perish, and youd have a barren mountain. If you have a Subluxation, which can occur as early as birth, blocking some of the nerve energy ow to your body, you are not going to function as well, tissue cells start dying, you are in a state of dis-ease, which will lead to disease. That is truly scary! I check people for Subluxation from birth to the elderly. Most people have had their Subluxations for many years, maybe even their whole life, because theyve never been checked for them. You dont have to have back or neck pain to have a Subluxation. Like, cancer, or high blood pressure, you can have no apparent symptoms. People go to the dentist to have their teeth checked for cavities and other problems, whether they have symptoms or not, to prevent tooth decay. Teeth are important, but the effects of Subluxation can potentially kill you. I often tell people,if you wore your spine on your face, youd take better care of it. So, whether youre very young or very old, its so important to have your spine checked for Subluxation. I envision a community full of vital, healthy, happy people, expressing LIFE! Now, thats not scary. Thats truly empowering. Truly from the heart, ADIO, Dr. Marilyn If you are interested in hearing more, I have weekly talks in my ofce that you are welcome to attend. For more information call 561-278-2727 or visit Subluxated is Scaaary!!! By Diane Feen Special to The Pineapple If you mention mainstream medicine to Dr. Craig Brown he has a lot to say. Hell tell you that most doctors are taught in medical school to heal patients by way of two avenuespharmaceutical drugs and surgery. Hell also tell you not to accept the dire prospects that many traditional doctors have been doling out for years. There is a better standard of health when it comes to Expansive Wholistic Health. You are accepting insufcient advice and treatment than what we have developed, said the Harvard trained surgeon. Getting healthy and staying that way is a lifelong mission for Dr. Brown. When he was just a teenager he was diagnosed with an untreatable spastic colon and an ulcer. It was at an early age, he discovered healing protocols that resolved these health issues. Once again at the age of 32 his health was challenged. This time he was so sick he could not work. The diagnosis was devastating. Although traditional doctors in New York said he should get his affairs in order, his inner gut told him otherwise. The severity of my illness catapulted me into researching and developing another way to cure myself because mainstream medicine let me down once again. This was the reason I set out on an amazing mission of healing called Expansive Wholistic Health. It was this miraculous healing that started Dr. Brown on an alternative route to healing for family, friends and patients. He is a walking encyclopedia of information about most diseases and will tell you at out that pharmaceutical drugs can be a prescription for disaster (the side effects he said are sometimes worse than the disease). That is the reason he studied the art of wellness as opposed to the traditional route of treating disease. The crown jewel of his work (and research) is a 12-Step Program with 32 protocols that addresses chronic diseases such as heart disease, chronic fatigue, arthritis, gastric diseases, immune disorders and a host of other chronic and acute medical conditions. We reverse and reduce the aging process its about results. I teach people my 12-step program so they can go at their own pace. I have seen this program change peoples life systemically. You dont have to take Dr. Browns word for it; his patients testimonies speak for themselves. Dr. Craig has changed my life. I am forever indebted to this man for giving me a life-long fountain of youth and energy, effervescence and amazing physical and mental stamina, said Glynna S. from New York, N.Y. Susan F. also cant say enough good things about Dr. Brown. For ten years I suffered with chronic IBS, reux, recurrent rashes, joint and muscle aches, memory loss, tinnitus, chronic fatigue and insomnia. I had been to top doctors in Boston and all they wanted to do was prescribe medication. After two weeks of Dr. Browns program the chronic pain in my joints and muscles started lifting and my rashes disappeared. After three months I was completely pain free. My focus went from foggy and forgetful to razor sharp and alert, from chronic fatigue to high energy. Because of him, I have my life back and I am LOVING it! Dr. Brown didnt start out with a 12-Step Program or 32 protocols, but life has a way of teaching us what we need to learn. When his father, Dr. Martin Brown was diagnosed with terminal Cardiomyopathy it catapulted him into action. I said thank you, but inside I heard myself say No. I had a strong belief that my Dads time was not up, It was then that I implemented the disciplines and protocols of what I now call Expansive Wholistic Health. The results were astounding. His father lived another eight years and spent many of them playing sports and living an active life. My protocols created what mainstream medicine would call a miracle. My father became healthier and more vital. He got his life back when mainstream doctors said it was impossible! He lived, laughed, loved and prospered with my mom until 2007 (seven years after diagnosis rather than three months). His protocol for treating disease addresses areas of weakness along with a raw food regime. I supplemented the decit of vital nutrients and enzymes to restore the cardiac patient to homeostasis. I also explored the Oral Nasal Systemic Connections and saw how they affect the quality of life and longevity. Dr. Brown has studied the effects of inammation on the body and has seen many miraculously improve using his Survival Kit for the 21st Century. Know that there is usually a medical alternative. Consider living your life on the path of Expansive Wholistic Health. This preventative measure will help you avoid needing a quick x (or a temporary band aid) to hide symptoms that can cause serious health problems in the future. That is the reason Dr. Brown is holding The 2013 Expansive Wholistic Health & Longevity Conference on November 2nd and 3rd at the Crest Theatre in Delray Beach. At the conference Dr. Brown will unveil the secrets he has honed for over 40 years that will expand your life physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and nancially. Dr. Brown will also share detailed information about the connection of the mind, body and stress factors that lead to chronic and acute illnesses. It is my mission to educate the public on how to build their immune systems using protocols for anti-aging results, disease prevention and help combat disease. Our goal is to reverse and reduce the process of aging. You arent going to hear me say, take three herbs and call me in the morning. My 12-Step program is a lifestyle change with 32 protocols. We get to the root of the problem I have seen miracles. So has Jennifer G. from Las Vegas, NV. My life came to a screeching halt in 2012 when I suffered from a brain aneurysm, requiring brain surgery. Six weeks after surgery I had a severe infection that threatened my brain tissue and skull bones. Dr. Brown helped me make a change in my lifestyle my stress levels, my nutrition, my activity and exercise -to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. He also gave me tools to recover from the brain aneurysm and infection. Through Expansive Wholistic Health I now lead a healthy life. If you ask Dr. Brown about living a healthy life he will tell you that his protocols (and 12-Steps) will assist your body in returning to its original state of homeostasis. Once your immune system is strong, your body will repair itself. Come to my conference and learn how to unleash your potential beyond your wildest dreams. Expansive Wholistic Health works naturally and wholistically to make you better physically, mentally, spiritually, and nancially.

16 October 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple


The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 17 OCTOBER 2013 DELRAY BEACH, FL The Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA), is an independent taxing agency of the city, charged with marketing the downtown, place making of the district and economic development on behalf of the downtown businesses. The DDA Advisory Board met for their monthly meeting Monday, August 12th to nalize their 2013-2014 budget and plans for the coming year. Over the past several years, the DDA staff and Board have been able to focus their efforts on accomplishing the mission and specic goals set forth by the state. With increased momentum and energy, the DDA Advisory Board and Staff reviewed their goals, objectives and accomplishments, and discussed the new plan along with the budget allocations. The DDAs main goal is to continue to market and promote the downtown merchants and businesses within the district through the award winning Night & Day Downtown Delray Marketing Campaign. This years marketing campaign will focus on promoting the eight key programs and events produced by the DDA Shop Local/Small Business Saturday in November, Holidays Downtown, Art & Fashion Week in January, Savor the Avenue in March, and Summertime Downtown just to name a few. Also, the DDA will be investing in advertising both locally and nationally. The DDA has been instrumental in advertising for the downtown for over 16 years and will continue as the return on the investment has been proven over the years, states Laura Simon, Associate Director, DDA. This year alone, the DDA has delivered over 250 million media impressions to Downtown Delray Beach and increasing the visibility of the downtown businesses.. The DDA Board agreed this year as proposed by staff to invest more time and resources into the second and third strategic goals, Place Making/Clean & Safe, which is an operational effort supporting the City and CRA in keeping the downtown customer friendly, and boosting economic development. This is going to be a fantastic year lled with growth and development throughout the entire downtown, with many new construction projects taking place that will enhance the economic impact within Delray Beach. The DDA wants to ensure the businesses are being informed and educated about the projects, expresses Marjorie Ferrer, Executive Director of the Delray Beach DDA. The downtown businesses need customers especially during this time of construction and development, we will all work together to ensure to message the Downtown Delray Beach is still a fun place to be even during development. As part of the 2013-14 proposed DDA budget, $40,000 of funding was allocated to support, as the DDA has traditionally done for the past 20 years, the Citys 100ft Holiday Tree and First Night Celebration. These events have a very positive impact on the Downtown businesses and the DDA will continue to support on their behalf. DDA nalizes 2013-2014 budget, plans and growth strategies for year LAKE WORTH, FL The Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) was the lead entity of the Lake Worth NSP-2 Consortium, which was awarded a $23.2M Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to purchase foreclosed and abandoned properties and rehabilitate or construct up to 130 residential, affordable housing units within a targeted area of the City of Lake Worth. The grant assisted with providing affordable homeownership opportunities to income-eligible households, and insuring affordability for a period of fteen years or more. Potential buyers of our properties were required to have household incomes which do not exceed the thresholds expressed on the 120% of Area Median Income (AMI) chart for Palm Beach County. The CRA has awarded the grant in 2010 and had only three years to accomplish this major undertaking. The Consortium included an assortment of for-prot and non-prot companies and local organizations. The plan for constructing new housing units included a blend of single family homes, townhomes, apartments, duplexes and lofts. Additionally, the CRA worked closely with a local general contractor to plan, design and build one of the most innovative developments in Central Palm Beach County: The Urban Arts Lofts! Planning and design of the Urban Arts Lofts began in the summer of 2010. Over the past few years, feedback received from many of our local artists included the lack of affordable workspace and housing in the City. Due to HUDs requirement that the grant should primarily be used to build residential housing only, the CRA had to creatively design units to ll the artists need for workspace but also provide affordable living opportunities. The CRA was fortunate to nd 10 contiguous lots along one of the main streets in our downtown target area which were all either foreclosed upon or vacant. This provided our team the opportunity to design a twelve unit development in one of the Citys most economically depressed areas. The construction of the Urban Arts Lofts (UAL) was a true community development project, consisting of 12, brand new, two-story live/ work lofts in the heart of the City of Lake Worth. The three essential elements of this project included: style, sustainability and affordability. The goal of the Urban Arts Lofts is to provide workspace along with affordable housing. The complimentary outcomes include the development of lots that have been blighted and underutilized for many years, the development of energy efficient/ green units that will help market the City and a real focus on setting the standard for quality opportunity housing within the City. The UAL is located adjacent to public transportation, work opportunities, and natural and cultural amenities. Construction of the UAL development was completed in February 2013 and occupancy is currently underway.Style, sustainability and affordability mark Lake Worth CRA led urban arts lofts St. George, a 38-unit townhouse community slated for Federal Highway just north of George Bush Blvd. recently received unanimous approval from the Planning and Zoning Board and City Commission. The 2-story, low density, Bermuda inspired homes designed by Richard Jones Architecture will feature 3 and 4 bedrooms and be registered as Delrays rst Green certied townhouse community. This design lls a void and offers family oriented living close to the beach and downtown, says Richard Jones. Construction is scheduled to start early 2014.St. George Townhomes approved

20 October 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By John M. Campanola Special to The Pineapple You cant watch television or read a newspaper without being reminded of the uncertain times were in. Disappearing jobs, disturbing stock market losses, the rising cost of living we dont need to tell you that its rough out there. This has made planning for your own retirement even more complicated than ever. While the market has improved since the 2008 crash, retirement account balances are still 1 percent below their peak 2007 value when adjusted for ination. The crash wiped out trillions of dollars in retirement savings. People who are still recouping their losses may not even read their 401(k) account statements anymore. The Truth About Social Security But other factors have muddied the waters for mapping a course toward a nancially secure retirement. People are living longer. At the beginning of the 20th century, life expectancy at birth was 47.3 years. Today, life expectancy is nearly 79 years. This is good news; but we need to prepare for more years in retirement. And if you thought Social Security would take care of you, think again. In 2012, the maximum monthly benet for a worker retiring at age 66 was $2,513 not enough for many of you to live comfortably. While there are no easy solutions, the purchase of a life insurance policy can guarantee the protection of your loved ones and also supplement your retirement savings if the death benet is no longer needed. Leaving a Legacy Life insurances primary purpose is to deliver death benet protection, which can provide a generally tax-free legacy to your loved ones. But permanent life insurance also carries many living benets. Cash value is money that accumulates within the policy, tax deferred. This means you do not pay taxes on any of the accumulation within the policy. In addition, you can access that money generally tax-free though policy loans. The cash value can also be accessed for college expenses, as collateral for a small business loan, or any other anticipated or unexpected event. In addition to the death benet protection, the cash value of permanent life insurance can also be used to supplement your retirement income. As such, it can be a vital piece of the complex puzzle of retirement planning. John M. Campanola is an Agent for New York Life Insurance Company.

We have another term introduced to us from the media and Federal Reserve. Not only have we added, Quantitative Easing, Fiscal Cliff, and Sequestration, to our nancial jargon, but we now also have the term Taper. Over the past few weeks we have been inundated with alliterations and puns regarding the taper that economists are calling for in September. Taper Talk, Septaper, Taper Tip-Off, and the Taper Tantrum, are all buzzing on nancial media outlets. .but what is the taper and how will it affect the economy and markets? The term taper is used to describe the reduction of bond-buying by the Fed through the stimulative quantitative easing (QE) program. So far this has boded well for investors. Weve reached all-time highs in equity markets this year and weve seen the housing market start to rebound. For the past few months Fed Chairman Bernanke has remained adamant that the continuation of the bond buying program is dependent upon incoming economic data. In his June statement, Chairman Bernanke announced that the Fed would gradually reduce purchases beginning later this year, and ending next year when the unemployment hits 7 percent. In turn we saw an overreaction of investors selling out of bonds which sent yields spiking in the aftermath. The latest jawboning from the Fed has been the topic many economists, strategists, and pundits have been trying to decipher like the Da Vinci code. I dont remember a time where there has been so much emphasis on what the Fed was saying to provide clarity on the direction of the market. Regardless of who breaks the code, its not a matter of if the Fed begins to taper, but when the Fed begins to taper. Some argue that the sequester spending cuts, higher tax rates, and further potential negative economic impacts from policy decisions made during the upcoming budget and debt ceiling debate are likely to keep economic growth somewhat suppressed through the end of this year. All of which will make it more difcult to justify the Fed taking their foot off of the gas pedal. Some even feel the Fed should provide additional stimulus by spending money on job training, infrastructure, and R&D to benet those who have not beneted from stock market gains and the rise of real estate prices from QE. If we cannot obtain signicant growth under the current program, how can we do so without QE? Others believe that now would be an ideal time to begin to taper, citing an outgoing Fed Chairman, reduced decit, recovering (slowly) economy, and declining jobless claims. They also argue that the benet of more quantitative easing does not outweigh the costs and can potentially fuel another asset bubble. The intended effect of spurring GDP growth has been lackluster and QE continues to build excess reserves in the banking system that could potentially be inationary and there is no real value to keeping QE going. At Maclendon, we believe tapering will not occur after this months Fed meeting. GDP growth is not where it needs to be, unemployment remains high, core ination is below the Feds target and after the latest rise in interest rates due to tapering speculation, any further rise will be a headwind to capital expenditures and the housing market which could further stall the economy. Throughout each variation of QE you can see that the markets have reacted favorably. If the Fed were to taper, we believe this would be a major headwind for the markets for the remainder of year. Although we believe tapering in September would be a little premature, we feel it is a necessary step in the future for a sustainable economy. If the Fed does decide to taper in September, it would still remain highly accommodative. We cannot continue to prop up the markets forever without unknown consequences in the future. We can only hope the Fed has the foresight and monetary tools needed to remove liquidity from the system before the next crisis occurs.

He used the then popular Miami Modernist (MIMO) style of architecture with its futurist look to embrace what had become Americas obsession with travel and the automobile. In the 1970s the business was relocated and the property fell into disrepair. Age and neglect took its toll and modications to the exterior were made. But underneath the layers of pealing paint and grime the integrity of the original design remained intact. In 2013, 63 years after the Chevy dealership rst opened its doors, local real estate developer Richard Caster bought the boarded up structure and hired Richard Jones Architects to bring the building back to life. Research located Ogrens construction drawings in the archives of the Delray Beach Historical Society and a plan to repurpose the abandoned building into modern ofce space was devised. Where rollup doors once provided access to the garage, new glass entrances for ofces were created. Replacing concrete tile openings (used to provide air ow before the days of air conditioning) new glass block and emergency exits were installed. Terrazzo oors were reconditioned, windows recanted and signicantly, the Dade County pine roofs were repaired, insulated and reinforced to meet current code standards. Today the building is home to 21 Drops, a modern line of essential oil products sold in retail stores and spas worldwide. Other tenants include Leighton Design Group, Slash Fitness and Caster Developers. While modest in stature the building at 290 SE 6th Avenue is important to our citys urban landscape. It has been designated historic by Delray Beach and is a candidate for the National Registry of Historic Structures. Special recognition to the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency who shared the developers vision by providing important faade and site development grants that helped make the project possible. Other local projects by Caster Developers include The Shoppes at Addison Place on Jog Road at Morikami Park and Old Palm Grove, a unique in-ll residential community on north Federal Highway.

I.E.T. relates to three factors that can signicantly affect growing and protecting your hard earned wealth. Most investors will look at their portfolio statement or mutual fund performance report and see a stated return for what that particular account and/or investment did over a certain period of time. This number is what is called the Nominal return and is very misleading for it does not take into account (3) Factors that change it drastically. Unfortunately looking at nominal returns does not take into account the degrading effects of I.E.T. Ination, Expenses and Taxes, which are important elements that all investors should be fully aware of. If you desire to achieve a realistic and hopefully successful nancial outcome from this point forth then read on. Ination: The rate at which prices for services and goods rise. As prices rise, the purchasing power of your dollar and the real return generated by your investments falls. Recently ination has been relatively low, however if we look at a longer term period, say the past 30 years we would see that ination has averaged just under 3% per year. This means that if your investment portfolio had earned a 6% Nominal return every year over that 30 year time frame your actual Real return would have been cut in half and equaled only 3%. Expenses: Regardless of the investment that you utilize there will be costs/expenses associated with it. Some of you may be thinking.. Not if I use a No Load mutual fund and you would be partially correct. While there would be no upfront cost to purchase the fund there are in fact annual internal expense management fees deducted from your account to pay ongoing fund expenses. If instead of a No-Load fund you purchased individual stocks, bonds and/ or ETFs you will pay some type of commission, fee based asset management and/or expense management fee. Needless to say nothing is free and as such you should be aware of the costs associated with your specic investments and work to keep them as low as possible. The more you save the greater your account value becomes and the better the beauty of compound interest performs over time. Taxes: Tax rates change over time and the tax treatment of different types of investments may vary as well. In conjunction with that if you are invested {outside of a tax advantaged account} you will have exposure to at least one if not all of the following: Ordinary Income Tax: Interest income from corporate and U.S. government bonds is subject to taxation at ordinary income tax rates and which can be as high as 39.6% for 2013. Dividend Income Tax: Effective Tax year 2013 the maximum rate on qualifying dividend income is 20%. Capital Gains Tax: This tax is paid on the difference between the price you paid for an investment and the higher price at which the investment is sold. If you held the investment for 12 months or less you will pay ordinary income tax rates, if held greater than 12 months the maximum Long-term capital gains rate is 20%. Unearned Income Medicare Contribution Tax: Brand new for 2013 and just what we needed (being facetious of course) an additional tax on our unearned investment income. Will this tax be applied to everyone No, but for those affected by it they will pay an additional 3.8% that is no longer available for their consumption but given unwillingly to one very needy Uncle... (Uncle Sam). So my thoughts are as follows: Investing and growing your wealth is much more than simply building and/or acquiring an investment portfolio and putting it on auto pilot (set it and forget it). Everyone hears about the importance of investment selection, asset allocation, and portfolio diversication, but very few take into account the three factors stated above and which can signicantly impact the overall outcome of what you hope to have. Ination may be on the lower end of the spectrum (today) but I can tell you with 100% certainty that nothing that I purchase today is at a price anywhere near the price I purchased it at 10, 20 or 30 years ago and thus I have no expectation of paying less for anything in the future. Ination: Count on itPlan for it. Investment expenses, you shouldnt care that a mutual fund company states that there fund made (X) amount over the past 1, 3 or 5 years. Its not what you make; its what you keep thats important. Taxes and Death are the only two guarantees in life, both which in my opinion require professional assistance. Seek the help of a CPA to help navigate the tax maze and thus avoid having to pay more then you need to.Ed Maass is a Certied Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant, and Chartered Life Underwriter.

Her work is surrealistic and ethereal. She is inspired by ancient cave art and combines the layering of images, use of symbolism, and the storytelling aspects of cave art in her work. Thompson creates a narrative that speaks of a world somewhere between consciousness and a dream-like altered reality. By layering texture and imagery and using many different medium (conte crayon, charcoal, ink, pastel, pencil) she creates images that are both personally and conventionally symbolic. Sarah depicts landscapes converging from mountains to seascapes to outer space to rolling plains with images of ying birds, animals, trucks, planes or automobilescombining technology and movement to form atmospheric dreamscapes. 20QuestionsArt House of Delray255 NE 6th Ave., Delray Beach, FL 33483 561.859.0856 Sarah Thompson Notre Dame De La GardeOwls and PlanesMusicals and plays to tickle the intellect as well as the funny boneDELRAY BEACH, FL The 2013 Theater at Arts Garage season is a celebration of the most remarkable storytellers and inventive voices in American Theatre. The four-play season, featuring some of the best new work in drama and musical theater, will take you on a thrill ride of laughter, insight, and intrigue. The season opens with a hip, hilarious song cycle from Daniel Mat, followed by a riveting family survival adventure by Carter Lewis. Master playwright Israel Horovitz then reveals the deep emotions of a later-life love story, and the season closes with the satirical retelling of Franz Kafkas Metamorphosis, set squarely in a contemporary middle-American household. For ticket and season subscription information visit, Our four new works will tickle your intellect as they tickle your funny bone, said Artistic Director Lou Tyrrell. In our roiling, constantly changing world, there is an internal battle we face every day the need to be part of it all, and the need to be apart from it all. The 2013-14 Season at The Theatre at Arts Garage will satisfy both cravings. Its a season of engaged escape! For Tyrrell, selecting the seasons productions is a process he takes very seriously. These days, Im looking for plays with the freshest ideas, plays that tell stories about the things that were actually going through in our lives right now, he said. Im also interested in an eclectic range and style of work, so that in four visits to the theater, we really experience a variety of plays that satisfy the broadest artistic perspective and taste. It is safe to say that there will be no other theater season like this in South Florida, Tyrrell continued. Arts Garage is a refuge for the sophisticated theatergoer, the experienced arts patron, and anyone who likes their entertainment smothered with artistic innovation.

As Tony-winning actress Victoria Clark has remarked, These are people trying desperately to connect, mostly getting it wrong, and we love them for it because thats us.

Two signature festivals will become a new tradition with the already announced Lake Worth Beach Art Fest the weekend before Thanksgiving, and the launch of the Lake Worth Beach Sand Sculpting and Seafood Fest in January. This creative new event features the experts who produce the world famous Ft. Meyers Sand Sculpting events; bringing the same level of professional sculptors, plus an amateur sculpting contest, nautical vendors and a beachfront seafood festival. Adding these events to the beach brings synergy to the cities vision of becoming the premiere arts destination in the county, said Mayor Pam Triolo. The beachfront in itself is the perfect destination already, but by adding these new events, we will bring new audiences who might not otherwise go to the beach, she added. Additional events include by popular demand the return of Community Dance Nights. The former casino ballroom hosted hundreds of community dances through the years. Once we reopened last March, the community begged for these dances to return, so eight different themed dance nights will take place in the ballroom for audiences of all ages to swing, jitterbug and tango! concluded Triolo. The popular beach bonres return, but with an all new look and feel, including live music and a beer and wine garden. The kick-off of Seaside Celebrations and Beach Bonres will be November 8 with the Lake Worth favorite The People Upstairs. All events, except the Community Dance Nights are free.

Military Trail Cinemark Palace 20 3200 Airport Road, Boca Raton Regal Shadowood 16 9889 West Glades Road, Boca Raton Living Room Theaters, FAU 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton The Wick Theatre, Boca Raton, opened its inaugural season on September 19, 2013 with the beloved Rodgers & Hammerstein classic, The Sound of Music. This selection proves a prescient pick for the new theatre since The Sound of Music is garnering tremendous buzz thanks to the live TV version starring Carrie Underwood scheduled for December. We are thrilled to bring The Sound of Music to the stage at this time, said Founder and Executive Director Marilynn Wick. Its a wonderful opportunity for South Florida families to enjoy a live performance of this show, and through our costume displays, experience the history behind the legendary production. The original Rodgers & Hammerstein Broadway production debuted in 1959 with Mary Martin. In 1965, Julie Andrews made the role of Maria an iconic one in the Academy Award-winning lm. The December production starring Carrie Underwood and True Bloods Stephen Moyer will be a live television event, and is expected to remain faithful to the script. The issues in The Sound of Music are still current, said Michael Ursua, resident musical director. There is no need to reconstruct or deconstruct the production. The story line is still fresh and the songs remain in your heart. The Sound of Music is the story of a young woman, Maria, preparing to become a nun. However, the wise Mother Abbess, believes a life outside the convent would better suit her, so she sends Maria to serve as the governess to seven children of the widowed captain Von Trapp. Maria brings laughter and music to the overly disciplined household, winning the affections of the children along with the captain. However, a rival for his affections and the storm clouds of war bring challenges to Marias new life. For Ursua, directing this production has been a joyous experience. When I was in living in New York, I saw the revival numerous times. The seats were always lled with families of all ages, and even the youngest of children would never lose focus. The kids in the audience really seemed to connect with the kids on the stage, he said. The Wick production has cast young performers from throughout Florida to star as the Von Trapp children. They are amazingly talented and terric to work with, said Ursua. And being able to nurture young talent is one of the primary reasons Marilynn Wick opened the theatre. We are so proud to be able to provide these outstanding young performers with this opportunity. Leading the 28-person cast are the husband and wife team of Krista Severeid and Tony Lawson. Severeid has played the role of Maria before, while this is Lawsons debut as Captain Von Trapp. They are so talented, they enjoy working together and their chemistry is truly palpable, said Ursua. Which is important, as above all, this is a love story. Another production highlight is casting Carbonell winner, Lourelene Snedeker as the role of Mother Abbess. Lourelene is absolutely amazing, said Ursua. Her voice is outstanding and when she is joined by the cast of ten nuns for the singing of Climb Evry Mountain, it will be a truly rousing nale. The Sound of Music will run through October 20th. For tickets, subscriptions, upcoming productions and Museum tour information, or call 561-995-2333. The Wick Theatre opens inaugural season with The Sound of MusicThe beloved classic proves trendy pickHIGHLAND BEACH, FL Artists Vicki Siegel and Bonnie Shapiro present Time and Place a two person exhibition of paintings and artworks at the Highland Beach Library Gallery. The exhibit runs from September 27th through November 21st, 2013. The opening reception will be Friday, September 27 4:30-6:30pm, with refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library. The opening and exhibit is free and open to the public. The Highland Beach Library is located at 3618 South Ocean Blvd. in Highland Beach. For more information call 561 278-5455. Diverse in style, technique and media, artists Vicki Siegel and Bonnie Shapiro share a common theme, Time and Place, that unites the varied works in the show. This is the thread of history that reaches back into our past, congures the present and projects itself into the future. Time and place binds us together as community, as our memories and concern for future generations shape our current thoughts and actions. The oil paintings of Bonnie Shapiro are a painted journal of people and places encountered as a child growing up in Florida. These early impressions are superimposed on the current landscape. Paintings are built up slowly through layers and glazes, much like the memories that echo through life. Vicki Siegels work is a narrative that explores issues of identity, power, sexual discovery and the environment. Each painting unites a particular memory with a world that is part fantasy and part reality. To achieve this, painting, drawing and image transfers of photographs can be found in each mixed media painting, creating a dreamlike atmosphere with a surreal sense of space. The Highland Beach Library Gallery Hours: Mon.-Wed., Noon-6pm, Thursdays, Noon-4pm, Friday-Saturday, 10 am-1pm.

This smash hit comedy tells the story of a seafood restaurateur named Barney Cashman who is going through a middle-age crisis. Taunted by the fact that he has been faithful to his wife for his entire adult life, he decides to enjoy at least one extra-marital ing before its too late. Unfortunately, Barney is not the most self-assured Romeo in New York, so his quest leads him into three uniquely illuminating experiences. Sufce to say, Neil Simons portrait of a man desperately trying to spice up his sex life turns out to be a hilarious blueprint for disaster! Mark Hetelsen appears as the ineffectual Lothario, Barney Cashman. The three objects of his desire are played respectively by Forman Lauren, Danielle Tabino and Daryl Meyer. The production is directed by Randolph Dellago and the technical direction is by Chip Latimer. The Last Of The Red Hot Lovers runs from October 5 to October 20.

The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 33 Casual or Forever GirlsQuestion I was recently asked to be a bridesmaid in a wedding. I think it would be disingenuous to be part of the wedding party. I was close to the bride-to-be during high school over 10 years ago, but then realized she was selsh and manipulative, and would only reach out when she needed something. We had a falling out about 5 years ago. Since then, I have been civil with her in social settings but do not go out of my way to communicate. She is well aware of my misgivings and has even recently stated that due to our history, while she knows I do not consider her to be a good friend or condant, she considers me to be one of her closest friends. It seems like most people have also grown tired of her ways and now that she lacks true close friends, she is now desperate to nd people to ll out the wedding party. I nd it impossible that she actually thinks of me as a best friend while she knows NOTHING of whats going on in my life aside from what I post on Facebook (if she even checks that), and doesnt make an effort to maintain a relationship. I dont mind making the trip to attend the wedding which is out of the country, since some of my friends and family members will also be in attendance & cmon, who doesnt love weddings and foreign adventures?! How do I decline the bridesmaid invite?Answer Tell her you dont want to do it and tell her the reasons you stated in your question. Well, dont tell her she is a manipulative, desperate, friendless weirdo, but tell her the rest. After you tell her your very legitimate reasons why you dont want to be her bridesmaid, primarily that you arent friends, listen carefully to her response. If she repeats the same old, Well I consider you a friend, stick to your guns and say no. That answer indicates either that 1) she is likely the person you described her as and is simply attempting to persuade a stranger from her past to be her bridesmaid as a ll-in or 2) she is a selsh ninny (I can write like Ann Landers) who is inconsiderate of your feelings, a situation that is just as bad, if not worse, than the former option. Firmly say, No, and I understand if you dont want me at your wedding anymore, and mean it. Even though she is selsh, you should still be the bigger person and respect that this is her wedding. After you shoot her down, your presence might be uncomfortable for her. But, if she gives a reason that seems thoughtful and well meaning, beyond a shallow attempt to get a pretty face to hand out gifts and balance out the wedding party, consider it. Maybe she thinks you were close friends a decade ago, and you represent a time in her life which would be a reasonable reason to ask you. Maybe she thinks the wedding wouldnt be the same without you because of that time you did XYZ for her. Who knows? Listen to the reason for her rejection and respond appropriately. She might not be the person you expect. Get a clearer view of the situation and respond. Lastly, you might consider just doing it if you can regardless of this other stuff. It would de-stress an old friend, you will get the adventure and travel you seek, and afterward you can go back to simply ignoring each other. This option isnt honest but you both get what you want without having to acknowledge you probably dont really mean anything to each other. It sounds like she only needs a bridesmaid, and you want to go to a wedding with family and friends regardless of who is getting married. Plus, with this last option, you can help relieve a ghost from the past of her loneliness, temporarily, before the nal goodbye. Im not good at giving best man speeches, but Ill prepare for hours, have some structure, wit, and candor, and all I ask in return is your questions to The award-winning Womens Theatre Project and the Boca Raton Theatre Guild have joined forces and are offering patrons the opportunity to purchase subscriptions to their productions next season. For a total of $99, patrons will be able to attend four plays two musicals produced by the Boca Raton Theatre Guild, and two plays presented by the Womens Theatre Project. Both the BRTG and TWTP operate out of the Willow Theatre at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, and both companies have noted an increase in interest about the others productions by theatre-goers since the Womens Theatre Project moved into the Willow to the last season. ( ( The t is a natural one, says BRTG Artistic Director Keith Garsson: By offering to combine our four shows into one package, Sugar Sand Park has enabled theatre-goers to enjoy a wide range of productions from classics to edgy new comedies. We will still be able to maintain our level of professionalism, yet we hope to reach out to a wider fan-base and encourage more cross-over between audiences loyal to both companies before The Womens Theatre Project moved here from Fort Lauderdale. Genie Croft, Artistic Director of the Womens Theatre Project agrees: This is another big move for us, especially since our original move last season to the Willow and a part of our continuing growth, she explains. This partnership with The Boca Raton Theatre Guild allows both companies to offer an exciting season of outstanding plays and musicals to our patrons at a very affordable price. And its an extraordinary opportunity to showcase and highlight some of Floridas best talent in drama, comedy, and musical theatre. Its a perfect combination! ( The plays and musicals that will make up the two companies combined season are Theyre Playing Our Song, the south eastern premier of Nicky Silvers The Lyons, the current Broadway hit Pippin, and Red Hot Patriot: The Kickass Wit of Molly Ivins. ( ( Subscriptions to the combined Boca Raton Theatre Guild/The Womens Theatre Project are now on sale and can be purchased by calling the Willow Theatre Box Ofce at 561-347-3948. The subscription offer will expire with the nal performance of Theyre Playing Our Song, on November 24th. Tickets to individual performances are also on sale. All productions will take place in the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park. The theatre is located at 300 South Military Trail in Boca Raton, just south of Palmetto Park Road.

40 October 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple


The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 41 Hi, my name is Big Joe Stout and I am the host of Food Woofers, the head to head smack down of chow down only on the food We visit Delray Beach restaurants that have a knack for signicant portions of amazing food and pit two contestants (woofers) to see who can nish rst. The winner claims fame, cash, and a full belly. Today we go west on Atlantic to an amazingly popular Italian haunt called Brick Oven Pizzeria. The pizza is fabulous, but once you dig in a little deeper, youll realize there is a lot more to BOP than bricks and mozzarella. Owner/Partner Gennaro Illiano married into the locally famous Mama Mia empire, an Italian restaurant enterprise with four locations. From Delray Beach to St Augustine (where Gennaro met his bride to be) the focus is fresh, made from scratch, and consistency that never backs down from quality. And Gennaro brings years of restaurant experience to the proverbial table. Young G began his cooking career at the age of nine when living in Italy, and has been cooking professionally since the age of 14. The rst thing you notice when you walk into BOP is the oven. It is indeed a brick oven, and a real one at that. Unlike others who lay claim to brick oven baking, BOPs brick oven has no synthetic cement and the pies actually cook right on the brick. This process allows the pies to cook in about eight minutes, which not only means you are biting into pizza ecstasy sooner, it also allows for a crispier crust and an overall fresher tasting pie. But perhaps whats more important is what takes place before the amazing variety of pizzas go in the oven. Brick Oven Pizzeria is all about making the very best, and that begins with quality ingredients that are freshly prepared. This includes making their own sauce, preparing fresh dough daily, roasting and sauting fresh vegetables, and following family guarded recipes with relentless diligence. This devotion to providing every customer with value that exceeds expectations is passed on to all dishes. Veal, Eggplant and Chicken Parmigiana, Chicken Marsala, Ravioli, freshly made soups, and every made to order Italian favorite on your list. And did I mention free dessert comes with all dinner entrees? It does! If you are really hungry and have a serious hankering for seafood, then the Seafood ala Mama will interest you...clams, scallops, and shrimp on a steaming mountain of fresh pasta. Brick Oven is open seven days a week and serves slices of pizza during lunch and the full menu is available all day and night. You can quench your feverish thirst with ice cold beer and wine, and all items are available for takeout. Now...lets talk woong. Our new episode of Food Woofers sponsored by Price Flooring will be lmed on Saturday, October 5th at 2:00 PM at Brick Oven Pizzeria. Our woofers will be feasting on the dish known as The Tour of Italy. This behemoth offering includes Lasagna, Eggplant Parmigiana, Chicken Parmigiana, Ravioli, Sausage, Meatballs and Baked Ziti. A dinner for two that will be woofed by one. If you dare to be a contestant, let us know by e-mailing If you just want to experience the amazing consumption competition that is all Delray Beach and known more commonly as Food Woofers, stop on by. Time to hit the bricks. You can visit Brick Oven Pizzeria at www. or at: Brick Oven Pizzeria W. Atlantic Avenue Delray Beach, FL 33484 561-496-5300 Brick Oven Pizzeria of Delray Beach Third Annual Food Symposium Avocado season has begun in Florida!Avocados contain vitamin E, folate, monounsaturated fats, and glutathione that are great for your heart. One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate. Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that protects against many diseases and helps maintains overall health. The beta-sitosterol found in avocados is a compound that has been shown to lower cholesterol levels. Avocados are also an excellent source of glutathione, an important antioxidant that researchers say is important in preventing aging and cancer. Natures Way Caf offers several menu items which include avocado, but it can be added to anything upon request. They strive to provide the ripest, best tasting avocados daily. Try this tasty smoothie recipe that even children will love. 6 ounces of cold water or juice 1/4 ripe Florida avocado cucumber cubed 3 strawberries ripe banana Add your choice of liquid, strawberries and banana to a blender or food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed. Then add the avocado and cucumber and blend until creamy. The texture of the avocado will give the smoothie a creaminess that will have the kids asking for seconds! Natures Way Caf 20 W.

They are everywhere this time of year, but what are they? The Sea Grape (Coccoloba uvifera also known as Uva de Playa in Spanish) is native to South Florida and bears grapelike fruit in bunches. It is said that the Sea Grape was the rst plant encountered by Christopher Columbus when he discovered America. Exposed to the high winds of the beach, the plant grows sturdy and wide to embrace harsh conditions. Grown in a more sheltered location, the Sea Grape grows as a tree and can reach massive heights. Unlike grapes, the fruit ripens a few at a time and must be shaken or picked from the stem. I remember as a child growing up here putting a towel on the ground or holding my shirt out and shaking the tree to dislodge the ripe grapes and snacking on them September October. The skin is a bit tough and purple, which covers a thin, peach-like pulp and large seed. The best thing to do with these berries is make Jam. Heres a recipe given to me by my mother. Highly coveted by native Floridians, it makes a special gift! Youll need: 1. Sea Grapes, of course. 2. Two lemons or limes (Key Limes are the best!) 3. Pectin 4. 5 cups of sugar Wash and then boil your Sea Grapes in a ratio of 2 cups Sea Grapes to one cup water. Use as many cups of Sea Grapes as you can. Crush the Sea Grapes as they boil for 25-30 minutes, until they are soft. Drain the juice through a jelly bag into a container. Please dont squeeze! Pour the juice into a pot and stir in the juice of your lemons or limes with a wooden spoon, and then add your pectin. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and add your sugar. Let it return to a boil and let it remain boiling for one minute, always stirring. After removing from heat, skim foam if necessary. Pour into sterilized jars while leaving a quarter inch room at the top of the jar. Sterilize the jars in a 5 minute boil bath. Enjoy!

The Delray Beach Pineapple Oc tober 2013 43 By David DiPino The Pineapple Contributing Writer Local baker Katie Eves, C.P.C., started baking gluten free desserts for her sister Jessica who has Celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that can cause discomfort and pain within the digestive system brought on from a gluten strain found in wheat. I wanted her to enjoy eating delicious desserts again, Eves, a certied pastry chef said. Family members and friends enjoyed the gluten free pastries with Jessica and soon Chef Katie was getting calls and texts for orders. With a total of seven years in the restaurant business, including a two-year stint as a gelato maker, and a year-and-a-half as the pastry chef in charge of two successful restaurants in Delray Beach and Boca Raton, Chef Katie decided to take the chance on her dream of having her own business. Besides the phone orders from family and friends, she was thinking of a venue to market the idea of her gluten free cookies and cupcakes, pastries, and regular cupcakes, all sweets she bakes with love. Last season, the Delray GreenMarket also took a step in a new direction when they moved from Southeast Fourth Avenue to Old School Square Park located just north of East Atlantic Ave. between 96 NE Second Ave. (entrance to Pineapple Grove) and 51 N. Swinton Ave. (Delray Center for the Arts at Old School Square). The Delray GreenMarket was started in 1996 by the Community Redevelopment Agency who remain its main sponsor as well as the City of Delray Beach. Chef Katie contacted Delray GreenMarket manager Lori Nolan, and began the application process. Once approved, Chef Katie built a small working budget and obtained tables and a commercial white tent, staples of a GreenMarket vendors necessities. During last seasons 17th Annual Delray GreenMarket, pastry Chef Katie debuted her new business Love, KatieKakes. Her new business focused on gluten free and regular sweets. Each Saturday she set-up her tent, lined her table with a pink and white table cloths, and attached clothes-pinned mini chalkboards with the prices. She also placed magnet signs to the tents arms with the prices of the goodies and cupcakes and her pastry goods were showcased nicely in decorated brown wicker baskets. She introduced herself to the community each week, built local clientele and began to receive special orders for parties and events. Most importantly, the Delray GreenMarket gave Chef Katie a chance as a woman entrepreneur. Love, KatieKakes Delray GreenMarket menu regularly included Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Cookies, Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies, Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Crme, Vanilla Cup Cakes with Vanilla Buttercream and Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Crme. Her regular sweets menu at the GreenMarket included Red Velvet Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream, Carrot Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream, Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream and Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Butter Crme. Each of Love, KatieKakes gluten free cupcakes come in a white box with a clear window to see the cupcake and tied with pink ribbon, and the regular cupcakes come in pink boxes with a clear window and tied with white ribbon, great for an event or birthday party. Cupcakes are priced at one for $3 or two for $5. At the GreenMarket, Chef Katie has the chance to meet her customers face-toface in a non-rushed atmosphere. At last years Delray GreenMarket, that allowed her to make business relationships with local parents, business owners and event planners, which turned into gluten free special cake orders, cupcake orders and custom dessert orders for her clients. Those orders continued long after the GreenMarket ended, enabling Chef Katie to grow her business year round. This year Chef Katie is ready to try out some new menu items at the 18th Annual Delray GreenMarket, beginning on Saturday, October 19, and continuing through Saturday, May 10. Market hours are each Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Old School Square Park. Im so excited to be at the GreenMarket this year during the Fall Season, which brings many opportunities for themed baking, including the use of pumpkin, one of my favorite ingredients to work with. This is my favorite time of the year so Im excited to try out some new things at the GreenMarket, Chef Katie said. ( Visit the Delray GreenMarket @ Old School Square, located between Swinton Avenue and NE Second Avenue, just north of Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. For more information call Love, KatieKakes at 561-635-5831, email or visit OCTOBER Enough with the pumpkin beers! I think every brewery out there is trying to create a pumpkin beer now; it can be overwhelming when trying to make a choice. Here are, without a doubt, my three favorite pumpkin beers: Southern Tier Pumking, Cigar City Good Gourd, and Samuel Adams Fat Jack. All three are unique and equally delicious. Sam Adams has classic pumpkin spices and then a smoky characteristic that sets it apart. Pumking by Southern Tier gives you the pumpkin pie with whip cream and vanilla, packed into a beer. Cigar City is creamy, and easily the most heavily spiced of the three; a must taste in my book.
