Delray Beach was chosen as the perfect place to launch WellFest, based on the communitys feel good vibe and substantial health and tness-oriented business infrastructure. Bob and his team hope to build a WellFest-oriented lifestyle into the Delray brand, something that he believes can be accomplished in-part with WellFest Delray. A wellness-branded Delray can help to attract like-minded businesses to our area for a potential headquarters or regional ofce, adds Bob. Of course well also welcome them here to hold their meetings or to sponsor events like WellFest. Bob is not alone in that belief and has enlisted the services and expertise of former mayor Jeff Perlman, who is consulting on WellFest Delray. WellFest Delray 2014 will be the next big step in what we believe will become a yearly tradition in Delray, added Perlman. With its year round temperatures that favor an active lifestyle, Delray has always attracted sports, exercise and tness enthusiasts. Plus many of our restaurateurs and chefs are promoting healthier eating, which is why the new Eat Well Food & Beverage Court at WellFest Delray is a win-win.

The Delray Beach Pineapple JANU ARY 2014 11 How is success in recovery dened?Successful recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol can be dened in a number of different ways. Most people think of accumulated clean time when grading sobriety, but there is much more to it. Physical health, mental health, emotional health, spirituality, relationships, and happiness are all essential elements of global recovery success. Having a global perspective about recovery is critical. If you do not look at the big picture, you will miss something important. Ignoring any major facet of life will usually create problems that could have been prevented. To be perfect in every facet is not realistic, but to achieve some measure of improvement is. Betterment in one dimension will spill over and make progress in other dimensions easier. The desired effect, of course, is a decreased rate of relapse. The relative rate of relapse is a much more meaningful statistic than simple clean time. Simply counting the days of chemical abstinence may give misleading information about a persons overall progress. To suddenly stop relapsing once and for all, without even a single unintentional setback, may be an unrealistic expectation for most. Some become unreasonably discouraged by a relapse that they really were not prepared to prevent. They see it as yet another failure and experience hopelessness. That is precisely the time when they must persevere. Most long-term success cases work through short relapses early in the recovery process. These relapses are typically shorter, minimally enjoyable, less frequent and not premeditated. The context of the relapse also matters. Someone who has done a substantial amount of therapy work may still be vulnerable to relapse from deeper underlying issues that are coming to the surface. This is entirely different from the individual who relapses over and over from basic triggers such as poor choices in friends or environment. A person who has a slip but has otherwise demonstrated global progress is in a more favorable position than someone who is fully abstinent but has not changed any other aspect of how they live. The degree of change in how someone lives their life will often determine their degree of recovery success. Positive changes result in decreased stress levels over time. Avoidable conicts are avoided and unavoidable conicts are managed more effectively and with less distress. Stress is a natural trigger for relapse so the less, the better. Improved self-care preserves gains in physical and mental health, which in turn protects against relapse. These positive effects of healthy living become increasingly more prominent over time. In a manner comparable to how addiction creates negative neuro-adaptive changes in the brain, recovery stimulates positive changes. The effects of these benecial changes include less depression, less anxiety, and less addictive cravings. This allows for sustainable happiness that is stable and consistent over time. This is the true bottom line that really indicates success. When a person is chemically abstinent, but otherwise not living a globally healthy lifestyle, these positive changes develop less. This is typically seen in the dry drunk, who is abstinent but otherwise unhappy, unpleasant, and emotionally stunted. Everyone is capable of a successful recovery but a global approach is necessary. Abstinence is enough to start the recovery process, but more is needed. A person needs to grow emotionally, psychologically and spiritually by making positive changes in the many facets of life. Sustainable happiness is the ultimate goal of successful recovery, not just clean time. Dr Rodriguez is the founder and Medical Director of the Delray Center For Healing.

12 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By Dr. Travis Lamperski Special to The Pineapple Shockingly, 8 out of 10 Americans will suffer from neck and low back pain sometime during their life, with facet syndrome accounting for a large percentage of these symptoms. A recent study on low back pain showed involvement of one or more facet joints in 79% of the patients. Many individuals with facet syndrome will often notice low back stiffness that becomes worse when sitting for long periods of time or when they rst wake up in the morning and begin to move. They also may have trouble turning their head side to side or at times need to turn their entire upper body because it is too painful. Even bending forwards and backwards or walking upright can be very difcult. Facet syndrome can present itself as welllocalized, dull or burning pain in the neck and low back, but that is not always the case. Lumbar facet syndrome can radiate into the buttock region, pelvis or thighs rarely traveling below the knee, while cervical facet syndrome can produce pain in the shoulder, arms, mid back and can also cause severe headaches. Most often individuals will blame their stiffness and pain on such things as their mattress, pillow or stress. They may even think that it is normal to feel this way. Articular facets are bony projections on the superior (upper) and inferior (lower) portion on the backside of the vertebras of the spinal column. These areas interlock with each other making up the zygapophyseal joint or z-joint which promote spinal support and are the key components to insure proper spinal motion. Like any other joint within the body, these areas experience constant repetitive movements where they interlock and become susceptible to injury and other degenerative conditions. Conditions such as Arthritis, Overuse Syndrome and Stereotypic Movement Disorders are some of the most common. Facet joints are incased in a synovial capsule which supplies proper nutrients to the joint and provides the meniscoid structure with lubrication needed to insure smooth gliding over one another, much like the meniscus in our knees. These joints are in constant motion throughout our life and can become worn and traumatized. As these joints become worn, they no longer provide the proper lubrication they need and can become inamed and irritated, leading to Facet Joint Osteoarthritis in the future. Bony projections begin to form within the joint causing it to become hypertrophied (enlarged) and inamed, limiting an individuals range of motion and producing pain. The main focus when treating any facet syndrome is to restore proper motion and function to the joint along with decreasing pain and inammation. Conservative treatment options should be the rst choice for an individual suffering from this condition. Chiropractic spinal manipulation is one of the best ways to restore that lost mobility in the spinal column. Non-surgical spinal decompression and exion-distraction can be a gentle and painless way to decompress the facet joints and aid in stretching tight musculature in the neck and low back. In addition, applying class IV cold laser therapy to the involved area will enhance the metabolism of local cells, increasing blood ow, reducing pain and swelling thus speeding up the healing time. Re-training or ring specic areas of the brain by way of neurophysiologic exercises can increase tone within the muscles of the spine to improve stability. Lastly, ergonomic changes, mobilization therapy, and properly prescribed stretch/strengthening exercises will help ensure any recurring episodes.

Take a moment and think about what balance means to you and how you would explain it. Start with a quick look at where your focus has been and where has your time been mostly spent. Now factor in your hopes, goals and dreams and consider where you prefer your focus and time to be spent. Finally, think about all the challenges that life throws at you on a daily basis, and how you usually end up oating somewhere between how you spend you time and what you wish you spent your time on. Take me for instance. Three holiday parties, my birthday and the actual holidays taking place, have seriously thrown me off my rhythm. Combine that with the unexpected over budget, pressures at work, and a few other are you @#$% kidding me moments, and suddenly my well thought out plans are slowly vanishing. Every area suddenly becomes more stressful, due to the sudden change of events. Such is life, but it doesnt have to be a tragedy, and I found the answer can be a simple reevaluation of my priorities. Here are some helpful tips to get you back on track for the new year and on to your balanced day to day living. 1. Dene what are your priorities. Socrates once said Know thy self. In regards to priorities, the ball is in your court. Nobody knows what makes you tick, and guring out what is important to you should be the rst step. Not to mention, a second look at if what you consider important still serves you well. 2. Have a Plan. A simple plan of action will be invaluable as life happens. You must take the time to think through what you want to accomplish in a realistic way so that you know how to divide your time and resources toward the achievement of those things. 3. Exercise. There is more than enough information to obtain on the benets of exercise. However, for whatever reason, if you cant dedicate a good portion of your life to a workout routine, simply walk, stretch, or even focus on your breath. Benets range beyond a six pack, and exercise can even help you stay focused during the most stressful of times. 4. Just do it! Every action has a reaction. The rst step is action, and without it all the planing and dening of priorities means nothing. Instead of creating far, out of reach goals that will deter you at the rst sign of failure, make your life easier and break your goals down to the tiniest of steps. Whether by the day, month, or year, having obtainable goals will be key to your success. So there you have it. I cant promise you that this is the cure for a balanced life, but I can tell you it eliminates some of the pressures of my own. Life is a moving target and always changing, so we have to allow, and plan in advance, the time to move and change with it when necessary. Its the only way!. It also reminds me of this famous quote: Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely. Write me at: or call 561-929-8905Balance OM WASNT BUILT IN A DAYby David James health & tness

Thanks to the Journey to Good Health program implemented by Tax Collector Anne Gannon in 2011, employees better understand their risks of chronic disease and are discovering tools to make signicant lifestyle changes. Health care is a major expense for any organization and were doing what we can to lower our agencys risk of major claims and provide our employees with excellent health care, says Gannon. The Journey to Good Health The elective program, rst initiated in 2011, has seen increased participation year after year and improved employee results. In this past year, 80 percent of eligible employees participated in the screenings. Screenings include clinical laboratory values, biometric measures and a risk factor questionnaire. Screening results track risk factors associated with cardiovascular diseases and type two diabetes. These diseases can be reversed and by doing so, risk factors for hypertension and certain cancers can also be signicantly reduced. Following screening a health report card is sent to participants with lab results and risk level indicators and ideal levels to aim for. Of the 224 screened in 2013, 169 participants were invited to attend classes to learn to manage their risks in one or more of the three areas of focus: cholesterol, diabetes and weight. The classes feature a registered dietician to educate employees on diet choices and new ways to prepare old favorites. At risk participants can also receive one-on-one counseling with the dietician to address specic concerns and eating habits. All participating employees are welcome to attend the classes and in 2013 new elective classes were added to reach new levels of wellness beyond diet and exercise. The classes included, Life after 40, A Roadmap for Fitness, A Healthy Cooking Class, Stress Management and more. In 2013, participating employees also received a discount on healthcare premiums. When you look at Anne Gannon, a marathon runner and yoga lover fueled by a plant based diet, its pretty clear she knows the value of a healthy lifestyle. She wants her employees to reap the same benets of good diet choices and frequent exercise, as well as lower their risk of a major health event. The Journey to Good Health program has become a part of our agency culture and were seeing more and more employees embrace a healthier lifestyle and theyre doing it together. A doctor may tell you that you need to lower your cholesterol, but the program not only shows them their risk, it shows them their ideal level and gives them the tools to get there, says Gannon. The results from the past year alone have been signicant: 53 participants of the 8 week program lost a total of 455 lbs. 69% of the High Risk Total Cholesterol Group decreased their risk with an average reduction in total cholesterol of 11%. 18 lost an average of 19 lbs. 67% of the High Risk Diabetes Group lost an average of 8.75 lbs. 15 identied as pre-diabetic were removed from the pre-diabetic classication at re-screen. 9 with elevated Triglycerides were identied as within normal limits at rescreen. Only 1.9% had slightly elevated blood pressure (either systolic or diastolic) compared to a national average of 31% The Journey to Good Health not only helps employees take back their lives, but it underlines Anne Gannons commitment to Palm Beach County. The program is intended to minimize her agencys risk of major healthcare claims, its an investment were making in our employees and its return results in not only better health but also a reduction in preventable major health incidents in our future. Since the programs inception the agency has seen a signicant reduction in prescription medication claims and while the long-term healthcare savings is not known, theyre condent that major incidents from complications with preventable diseases has been reduced, now and in the future. To change the agencys risk factors, the Tax Collectors ofce had to reach beyond traditional wellness programs to offer employees attainable goals, measurable results and most of all support. What cant be seen in the numbers are the lives that have been changed as a result of the program. The true results are in the smiles of healthier, happier employees, who are proud of their accomplishments and are now advocates of a healthy lifestyle, impacting their family and friends.Journey to good health: How screenings, a nutritionist and big helping of support are shrinking waistlines and changing a government agency for the better.


14 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple health & tness Living a Compassionate LifeBy Laura Norman Special to The Pineapple If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. The Dalai Lama Compassion can be dened as ones emotional response to suffering or unhappiness in another. It also involves an authentic desire to help alleviate that suffering. Why is compassion so important? Consider compassions tremendous benets for our physical and mental health and our overall well-being. Connecting with others in a meaningful way helps us enjoy better health, speeds up recovery from disease and, based on research by Stephanie Brown, at Stony Brook University and Sara Konrath at the University of Michigan, may even lengthen our lifespan. Living a compassionate life may also boost our well-being by increasing our sense of connection to others. Concern for others involves both an understanding of what another might be feeling and compassionate caring. Since compassionate caring is fostered by face-to-face contact, its important that we encourage more physical contact and less virtual contact with one another. People who feel more connected to others have lower rates of anxiety and depression. Studies show that they also have higher self-esteem, are more empathic to others, are more trusting and cooperative and, as a consequence, others are more open to trusting and cooperating with them. I have dedicated my life to helping people live exceptional lives physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually through my practice of Reexology and Life Wellness coaching. The connections I have made are very fullling, and the results my clients experience are powerful, positive and longlasting. As we begin a brand new year, here are some ways my clients have helped me discover toward living a compassionate life: Live the Passion in Compassion. Pursue your passion in life. Its what makes life worth living, and gives our lives true meaning and purpose. Doing something you love creates a deep sense of joy. For some, compassion is the purpose of life, what gives it meaning, and what leads to ultimate happiness. Find a way to give back. We all want to feel our lives have value. Choose something that honors your beliefs and passions, while giving something back to the world. Your life will have meaning and purpose. If you cant manage (or arent ready) to work on your passion for a living, make time for it every day. By working on your passion and becoming expert at it, the opportunity to make money from it will appear. As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way. Mary Anne Radmacher Focus. Balance your inner and outer focus. Inner focus is about paying attention to your values, intuition, and ways of responding. Outer focus involves knowing how to be present and develop empathic connections with others. The ability to focus on one person or thing to the exclusion of others to be present is a lost art among many today. Yet focus is a very important skill to have in life. It fosters greater happiness, better relationships, and increased productivity. Focus also makes your life feel simpler. You will nd you have more time to do what fullls you and gives your life meaning. Focus can also help reduce stress and make your overall life easier to manage. It really is a great feeling. Take some time right now to consider if your career and lifes trajectory are in alignment with your inner values and passions. Whatever path speaks to you, a life lled with compassion brings with it greater meaning, deeper satisfaction, stronger relationships and a heightened sense of wellbeing. Compassion is the chief law of human existence.

Founder Ronald Prassas has a unique company called Shuttle Dudes. Prassas, from Philadelphia, moved here in 2008 to study hospitality and recently graduated from Lynn University. One evening after drinking and socializing with friends, Prassas decided to take a cab home instead of going in his friends car. That evening his friends were in a car accident. Fortunately no one was injured however it was a life learning experience that led to Prassass idea to start Shuttle Dudes. Prassas, who is an entrepreneur and member of the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, is partnering with community bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues to eliminate alcohol-impaired driving by offering their clientele a protected ride home with Shuttle Dudes.

20 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By Colleen Hasey Schuhmann, CRPC Special to The Pineapple If you are lucky enough to work for a company that offers a pension, you may be faced with a major decision at retirement: to roll over or not to roll over. In other words, should you take a lump sum distribution at retirement or receive a monthly check during retirement? The choice you make can affect how you live in retirement, and what you can leave your heirs. While pension plans, or dened-benet plans, are meant to provide a certain amount of security in the form of monthly cash distributions, because retirees have no say in how pension plan money is invested, they have no opportunity to increase their monthly cash distribution. One way to exercise more control and perhaps increase the value of your pension plan distribution is to take a lump sum distribution at retirement and roll it into an IRA. An IRA offers you greater exibility for accessing and investing the money. Assets in a rollover IRA may be invested in mutual funds, individual stocks and bonds, and other investments that align with your nancial, wealth transfer and retirement goals and your investment risk tolerance. Because IRAs are tax-deferred, taxes are only paid when you take a distribution from the IRA, which allows investment earnings to grow free of tax until you take a distribution. Before rolling over your pension to an IRA, the following should be considered: 1. IRAs are not guaranteed, if you invest aggressively or inappropriately or the market fails to perform as you expect it to, you run the risk of reducing the value of your pension or perhaps outliving your assets, and 2. a rollover to an IRA from a qualied plan is protected from the claims of creditors in bankruptcy. Here are some additional factors to consider: Your companys future If you stay in your companys pension and select the lifetime income option, the maximum annual benet insured by the Pension Benet Guaranty Corporation in the event your company goes bankrupt is $55,840. Your health Pensions are meant to provide retirees with income for the rest of their lives. However, if the pension holder passes away, depending on the annuity option chosen, the surviving spouse typically receives a reduced benet of at least half of the amount the plan holder would have received. Once the surviving spouse dies, any remaining pension benet remains with the pension plan. With an IRA, you can elect a beneciary to receive the IRA upon your death, such as another family member or a charity, assuming there are still assets left in the account. Minimum distributions If you were to roll your pension into an IRA, you would be required to take minimum distributions from your account, and pay taxes on them, once you reach age 70. Such requirements might not be an issue if you planned to begin withdrawing assets before you reach 70. But if you retire later in life and want to begin drawing down your funds after 70, the requirement may cause you to incur tax on distributions before you want to. Ination Typically, xed monthly pension payouts will not keep pace with ination. Some pension benets have a cost of living adjustment built in, but most do not. So if youre concerned about the declining value of your assets due to ination, the lump sum option might be more suitable for you. So is an IRA rollover right for you? The most important thing is to review your pension options in the context of your overall nancial picture. Do you have other substantial sources of retirement income? Are they enough to fund your lifestyle, or will you need the pension income to do so? How important is leaving assets to your heirs or charity? A qualied nancial professional can help you identify your objectives, determine the costs associated with them, and decide whether a monthly check or rollover IRA is more appropriate given your circumstances.For more information, please contact Colleen Hasey Schuhmann, Vice President Wealth Management at UBS Financial Services in Boca Raton. She can be reached at 561367-1817.

TOLL COMPLETES $84M BOCA RATON LAND PURCHASE Major homebuilders continue to gobble up large development sites in Palm Beach County. In the latest example, Toll Brothers has closed on the $83.5 million purchase of 122 acres in Boca Raton, The Real Deal has learned. The Horsham, Pa.-based company plans to build gated luxury residential community called Royal Palm Polo on the 6300 Clint Moore Road site. Polo Realty of Boca Raton is the seller, according to Palm Beach County records. The selling company is managed by the Oxley family of Tulsa, Okla. Toll obtained a $55.7 million mortgage for the acquisition. The loan document has not yet been recorded by the county. Sales at Royal Palm Polo are expected to launch next spring. Prices for the 223 homes range from $1.2 million to $2 million. Homes will have between four and seven bedrooms and three or four-car garages. Boca Raton council members approved the annexation of the Royal Palm Polo site last month. It marked the rst time the city expanded its boundaries in nine years. Vacant land is at such a premium in Boca Raton that builders are turning to golf courses as potential project sites. County zoning commissioners were scheduled to address a proposal to develop 288 homes on the 130acre Mizner Trail Golf Club. The project faces substantial resistance from nearby residents. Proposed projects could bring more than 23,000 new homes to Palm Beach County. A 2,000-home development on 1,200 acres previously zoned for rock mining at Palm Beach Aggregates was approved by county commissioners last month. Other potential developments include Minto Communities plan to build 6,500 residences and 1.4 million square feet of commercial space on the nearly 3,800-acre Callery-Judge Grove. Minto also wants to develop a college campus and baseball spring training facility on the site. courtesy JESSICA ROSATO RECEIVES RISING STAR AWARD FROM WOMENS COUNCIL OF REALTORS BOCA RATON, FL Jessica Rosato, Luxury Residential Specialist with Nestler Poletto Sothebys International Realty, recently received the Rising Star Award from the Womens Council of Realtors (WCR).

The Delray Beach Pineapple JANU ARY 2014 23 By Kimberly West Business, Marketing & Sales ConsultantWhen you start your own small business, you immediately start thinking about growth. Maybe you just dream of eventually opening a second store, bringing on partners or you might envision becoming a huge conglomerate or one day franchising the business. Growth isnt just admirable its expected. But often, small business owners dont consider that growing a business too quickly can eventually cause the companys demise. You can easily nd yourself lacking working capital, which is one of the biggest contributing factors to the failure of one in six new small businesses. You and your business can avoid the dangers of overgrowth. By managing your business correctly and scaling up at a good pace, youll guide your company on the path to success. Whether youre running a small business or a company with many employees, the key is planning. There are ve biggest risks associated with sudden, unexpected growth. 1. An Overbearing Debt Loan If you dont plan properly for an increase in business, you can wind up taking on far too much debt. Growth takes money, and especially during the early stages of growth, working capital will be low. Many business owners take on massive debt to feed the growth machine, and a vicious circle begins. Increased orders require you to take on more debt, and so on. Too often, the cycle breaks only because the debt becomes so high that it topples the business. Even though more money is coming in, you owe even more and cant cover debts. For example, if you owned a housecleaning business and suddenly began to get more customers, youd need to purchase more supplies and probably hire some more help. These positive developments would involve a lot of cash ow, and they can quickly turn negative by eating up all of your reserves. The new business is good, so you give incentives to your existing customers to send you referrals, leading to even more customers. Again, you need more staff and supplies. Perhaps you go as far as adding a company car with your logo to spread the word and support the increased workload. Your working capital completely depleted, you take the next logical step: getting a loan. At rst, it looks like the increased prots will more than cover the credit payments. But while the client list is growing, the debt is piling on more quickly, and keeping up with payments becomes a struggle. The growth was good, but it came too quickly and caught you unprepared as a business owner. Better scal management would have allowed for controlled growth based on revenue and prots. 2. Being Unable to Satisfy Your Customers 3. Forgetting Your Original Goal 4. Losing Employees 5. Focusing on the Short Term Visit for indepth explanations of 2-5. In closing, for your small business to succeed, the name of the game is growth. But growth is very complex. Its hard enough to grow in the rst place, so make sure you handle it properly when that success comes. Keep your eye on three areas of the business: your systems, your staff, and your cash reserves. Successful growth requires taking the time to plan and prepare to sustain all three as your business increases.

I had in my mind that I would probably donate my time to a soup kitchen when I walked by the Arts Garage. We had just moved down and were xing up the house, it was a time when we just needed to get out of the house and get some fresh air. The Arts Garage told me the woman who runs the Puppetry Arts Center directly behind the Arts Garage was looking for a puppeteer, said Gibson. I wanted to donate time and Jo Janeen Timmis, who runs the Puppetry Arts Center, needed a puppeteer. The rst time he picked up the puppet, Timmis looked at him and his puppet technique and told Gibson he was a natural at it. He was hooked. I really spend time working with and learning the puppets. Im really into the marionettes but I also walk around with the two-footer puppets. Each Saturday, I take the three-footer Tony the Tiger puppet over to the Delray Green Market, said Gibson. Gibson met Martel and Hartmann hanging out at the Living Room in Boynton Beach, a nouvelle cuisine restaurant where foodies ock. Each Monday night the Living Room turns into an eclectic venue with singers, songwriters, and creative performers like puppeteers. I go up to the Living Room on Mondays in Boynton Beach, and hang out with the singers and songwriters I was hanging out with Steve Martel and Bill Hartmann; while they played music I would stand by the stage and perform with my puppet. They came up with the idea, to work puppets while doing a music showcase, Gibson said. From 6:30-10:30 p.m. on January 18, Delray Beach Initiative Enriching Delrays Youth will also host an event for the Milagro Center at Kevros Art Bar, 166 SE Second Ave. in Delray Beach. According to Martel, this is the rst in a series of four (there could be more added) singer/songwriter events for 2014. After several meetings and discussions regarding the evening, Martel and the Delray Beach Initiative Enriching Delrays Youth came up with the following program: A Night of Miracles & Music to Benet The Milagro Center and sponsored by the Delray Beach Initiative. This should be the model for future, similar, programs with adjustments made to suit each event, said Martel. Martel will host the event and the artists are Michele Lynn, JD Danner (www.jddanner. com) and Teri Catlin ( They will set up the performance outside and in front of the Mermaid Mural. Pizza will be ordered for everyone at 7:30 p.m. and there will be Speakers from the Milagro Center, as well as, artwork by the Milagro Kids and live painting called Art on the Spot at the event. We are in an art bar after all! We will raise funds in a number of ways, including, a 50/50 Rafe, donation jugs, a suggested donation station at the patio door sponsorships, said Martel. Sponsorships for the event start at $100 up to $250, which also gets the sponsor a star on the Milagro Center Miracle Wall. Suggested donation is $10. Steve Martel is in it for the kids. Martel and his wife Lori, are both local realtors with RE/MAX Advantage Plus actually came to Delray Beach, not for the sole reason to sell homes in paradise, but to also adopt a baby boy. Their son Ethan is now in elementary school, and while moving to South Florida to make the adoption, they fell in love with the boy and the City of Delray Beach. The couples story zigzags across the U.S., over a period of decades. Steve met Lori in the third grade; they dated in high school and then went separate ways. I told everyone that our paths would cross again, and they did, said Steve Martel. Mutual friends re-united the couple, Steve had ventured out to the left coast to run a hotel in California. Soon, Lori showed up at the hotel and then the duo ended up getting married and moving back to the Eastern Time Zone, settling in New England to take care of Steves father. They helped his father for nine years and then his father passed away; Lori and Steve went to Italy to meet her family and returned to sell their home on the water. Then, they moved to Delray Beach, as an opportunity came to adopt the baby. Since then the couple has called Delray Beach home and involved themselves in local charity and volunteer opportunities. We got involved in community and volunteer work because we just love what is going on in this City of Delray Beach. Last year, we pulled off a benet for the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum and I spent a year hosting Friday night open-mic nights at Kevros Art Bar, Steve Martel said. Martel, a local real estate agent, is one of about two dozen men who in 2012 signed up for the Second Annual Real Men Bake competition. The event was organized by the GFWC Delray Beach Womans Club in support of several local organizations, including the Delray Beach Public Library. Martel baked his wifes Italian Cookies recipe for the event. Martel beams around Delray Beach chock-full of exuberance, just run into him and it is obvious he is more visionary than dreamer. Puppet Jelly is one of those visions that he will spread to an audience on January 11, at the Puppetry Art Center as he raises money with friends, for the kids.

The Delray Beach Pineapple JANU ARY 2014 25


26 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By John M. Campanola Special to The Pineapple Youve just lost someone close to you, and its a difcult, stressful time. Youre grieving, yet theres so much to do: funeral arrangements to make, family to care for. And as painful as it may seem, there is also urgent business concerning your nances. Heres a checklist, by no means complete, to help you get started: Contact your loved ones places of employment. Find out whether he or she was covered by employee group insurance. You should also ask about any pension benets, accrued vacation or sick pay, and credit union accounts. Contact any unions and service or professional organizations your loved one belonged to. You might be eligible for benets through these groups. Gather your loved ones bills. Some loans and service contracts are covered by credit life insurance that pays off the balance in the event of a customers death. Security for Your Future If youve been left a signicant inheritance, you face further decisions for the long term. Some people choose to use a small part of the money to pay debts, or buy something they might not otherwise be able to afford. Keep in mind, though, that your loved one probably intended to provide security for your future as well. After your loss, other family members may be even more dependent on you. You may decide to use your inheritance to provide security for them, just as it was provided for you. Life insurance can play an important role. A single premium policy can guarantee* your heirs a nancial legacy thats generally free from federal income tax. Permanent life insurance can also offer living benets, like the option of borrowing against a policys value.** Life can change swiftly and unpredictably, so its always wise to have your affairs in order. The best time to make arrangements for tomorrow is today. Guarantees backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuer. ** Loans against your policy accrue interest and decrease the death benet and cash value by the amount of the outstanding loan and interest. John M. Campanola is an Agent for New York Life Insurance Company. For additional information on the information or topic(s) discussed, please contact him at 561-212-2903 After a loss: Managing a loved ones affairs and your inheritance By Andrea Hoffer Special to The Pineapple Have you ever had so many things to do, you didnt know where to start? I have those days more often than Id like to admit. I have tried many different time management techniques and always come back to the trusty to do list. It is straightforward and simple. While my to do list has migrated from paper and pen to electronic form, it still is just as effective. Here are some tips to make your to do list work for you: Pull off the band aide When you look at your list of things you need to do, is there one thing that you really dont want to do? We tend to put off tasks that we think will be unpleasant or unusually challenging. It is easy to justify delaying these tasks as there always are other things to get done. Procrastinating the difcult tasks just adds stress and makes your to do list seem longer. Instead, tackle those tasks rst thing in the morning. Pull off the band aide! Your day can only get better from there. Schedule your to do list If your day tends to be full with meetings and constant interruptions, schedule a block of time to get certain types of tasks done. Clump together tasks that make sense to do at the same time, such as reviewing mail and paying bills. Prioritize the urgent items, but dont ignore the important items that will be urgent tomorrow. This is a good time to make sure nothing slips through the cracks. If you dont get to something and it can wait, re-schedule it for another time. Putting your to do items on your calendar ensures they will get done and not forgotten. Find time to create The next time you come up with an idea to improve upon your operation, product, or processes, write it down. Keep a running list of all project and business ideas you and your team generates. Schedule time with yourself and other stakeholders to review all new ideas regularly (monthly or quarterly). Choose one idea to focus on each time you have the review meetings. Assign people to test the idea and determine the next steps to make it happen. If you implement just one new great idea a year, you probably will be ahead of your competition. Push through the hard stuff, allot time for your to do items, and set aside time for the ideas you keep pushing to a rainy day. You will nd you accomplish more and create more opportunities. Andrea Hoffer brings a unique perspective to consulting and training. A small business owner with 35 employees herself, she knows rst hand the everyday challenges of motivating employees, exceeding customer expectations, and meeting business and revenue goals.

The Delray Beach Pineapple JANU ARY 2014 27 Delray Beach Town of Palm Beach Palm Beach Gardens (561) 819-6208 By Jeremy Ofce Special to The PineappleAs 2013 winded down and the holidays are behind us, were sure that most of you were surrounded by family, friends and co-workers, conversing over the dinner table or at a holiday party. Some of you might have even engaged in conversations about the markets and economy. To refresh you on the hottest topics of the year, we thought we would give you a Cliffs version of what has happened in the markets and economy in 2013, so you can stay informed and engaged in the conversations. The year started off with a bang, but it almost began with a whimper. The uncertainty of the scal cliff weighed heavily on investors as politicians continued to be at an impasse leading up to the deadline. Fortunately, as most of us were celebrating the New Year, Congress passed legislation and compromised to keep the country from falling off the cliff. The markets cheered and the Dow soared over 200 points on the opening. This was just the start of 2013. Overseas, we saw an emergency billion bailout of Cypriot banks. Cyprus, a small island country in the Eastern Mediterranean, had a banking sector about ve times the size of the nations GDP that was fueled by Russian money that was using the country as a tax haven. Terms of the bailout gave depositors shares in the Bank of Cyprus and taxed depositors above a certain threshold, which ultimately turned the bailout into a bailin. This sent a ripple through the banking world as depositors began to question the safety of their deposits. Meanwhile in Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was still implementing a combination of scal spending, monetary stimulus and structural reforms known as Abenomics. This three-arrow approach involves a massive increase in scal stimulus through government spending, a huge increase in monetary stimulus through unconventional central bank policy, and a reform program aimed at making structural improvements to the Japanese economy. In April, to combat a year of deation, Japan took a page out of the Feds book and began a bond-buying program an annual pace of 60 trillion yen, which will double the Bank of Japans monetary base over two years and devalue the yen. This is all in hopes that a falling currency will make Japans exports more attractive to international buyers by undercutting competitors. Back home, we saw interest rates on 10year Treasuries bottom at 1.61% on May 1st. This was followed by a precipitous rise in rates as investors began to speculate when and if the Fed would begin to taper its bond-buying program. Unemployment and ination data was analyzed with a ne-toothed comb to discover any clues on what the Fed was contemplating regarding the continuation of quantitative easing. On September 18, the Fed surprised many investors as it decided not to taper and instead await more evidence that progress will be sustained before adjusting the pace of its purchases. This subsequently led to a fall in Treasury yields and a stock rally as investors began to reassess when tapering would begin. With the Fed tapering hurdle out of the way, we arrived at the next government impasse: the debt ceiling. On September 25, the U.S. Treasury announced that its borrowing capacity would be exhausted no later than October 17. Again, this threatened the stability of the economy as people lost condence in the elected leaders and faced a government shutdown. As Republicans and Democrats disagreed on the terms of raising the nations debt limit, a partial government shutdown began on October 1, 2013, with about 800,000 Federal employees put on temporary leave at an estimated cost between $2 billion and $6 billion in economic output. On October 16, the Senate passed the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2014, which funds the government until January 15, 2014, and suspends the debt ceiling until February 7, 2014, essentially putting off a nal resolution on the issue. Investors cheered the results, sending the Dow up over 200 points. Other headline news this year included the rise of Tesla Motors, the muchanticipated Twitter IPO, and the release of a new Apple operating system and iPhones. Tesla went from approximately $35 a share at the beginning of the year to $194.50, only to fall back down to $132.32 on car res and production constraints. Twitter opened at $45.10 on its trading debut, 73% above its IPO price of $26. Apples new operating system, iOS 7, was released ahead of the new iPhone 5s and 5c to raves from critics, although the 5s fell short of expectations. One thing is certainthere was never a dull moment in the markets in 2013. The headline noise was deafening. We can only hope that next year will bring similar returns, which would certainly leave us talking.

The decision is the result of a thorough evaluation that took into account a number of important factors, including the cost to operate each headquarters location, lease obligations and sublease considerations, tax implications, government incentives, ability to add associates and incorporate functions in the current space, and people-related costs. Selecting the headquarters location is a critical step toward integrating our two companies, said Roland Smith, Chairman and CEO, Ofce Depot, Inc. Both Florida and Illinois have many positive attributes, but our analysis concluded that Boca Raton provides the best platform for us to achieve planned synergies, leverage assets to drive improved protability, and launch a compelling vision for the future. We appreciate the signicant efforts from legislators in Illinois and the generous support we have received from the State of Florida, Palm Beach County, and City of Boca Raton, Smith added. We would like to thank Florida Governor Rick Scott, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and the countless others involved in providing the information necessary for us to make this important decision. The Company will remain in its current 625,000-square-foot corporate campus located at 6600 North Military Trail in Boca Raton, which has ample space to accommodate associates who will relocate from Illinois. With the location of our headquarters now decided, we will quickly move forward to build a world class leadership team and organization focused on exceeding the expectations of consumers and businesses, becoming a more appealing partner to our vendors, and driving value for our shareholders, Smith said. To do that, we will select the best talent available from both locations. Ofce Depot, Inc. will maintain a presence in Naperville throughout the headquarters transition and accompanying integration activities. Ofce Depot and OfceMax retail store locations, customer service centers, warehouses and distribution centers are not affected by the selection of the headquarters location. About Ofce Depot, Inc.

The Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. The group was born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Their rst idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldnt nd three wise men or a virgin. So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and they created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom (Dont quit your day job!), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional ofces and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Fiscal Shades of Gray. Theyve been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.LEARNINGFind your art at the School of Creative Arts -where art, photography and writing classes are enriching hundreds of local residents every week.

36 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple Exciting, bold, dramatic, innovative and adventurous are a just a few of ways to describe the programming scheduled at Arts Garage this year. Always the perfect blend of award winning artists and groundbreaking new shows, this venue proves the only denition that universally applies is. amazing! January sets the stage for an artistically expansive year for us, said Alyona Ushe, Executive Director. Expect even greater creative diversity as we bring back all-time favorites while expanding programming in boundary breaking ways. This month proves the paradigm with an eclectic mix including the return legendary greats Bob Margolin and Randy Brecker. These tremendous talents were on the top of our list for performers that our audiences craved, continued Ushe. Both of these legends have transformed the musical scene. Margolin is the last living Muddy Waters band member and Brecker is a Grammy Award winner. They have played with a voluminous list of icons both in concert and on hundreds of albums. And who taught Elvis to dance? Another legend who is set to take the stage in January, guitar great Calvin Newborn. Elvis Presley frequented the Plantation Inn Club twice a week to watch Newborn play. Elvis got swiveling his hips and wiggling his legs from me, said Newborn. Presley also used to eat at the Newborns house and browse their music store for gospel records. While Arts Garage is renowned for great American performers, they also feature international icons in the making. This month, Jamaican drummer, Andrew Atkinson, heralds the new year with sexy rhythms that blend an array of inuences into a high energy show. Then Brazilian stars, Rose Max and Ramatis, showcase a sultry mix of samba, jazz and world music. And January brings the return of Theatre at Arts Garage with a riveting family survival adventure, the Hummingbird Wars by Carter Lewis. Carter Lewis has a remarkable ability to sharpen the focus on important issues that we face today, says Artistic Director, Lou Tyrrell. He does it with a scathing humor that allows us to laugh through our gasps of immediate recognition. His language is both completely natural and uniquely poetic, and unmistakably his very own singular voice. The Hummingbird Wars is a great new American play, and a work that will speak to us for generations to come. To get tickets for these shows and season subscriptions, please visit or call 561-450-6357 Friday 1/3 8:00pmAndrew Atkinson Andrew Atkinson is that rare type of musician who can play just about anything, and play it all with gusto. His drumming draws on the seductive beats of his native Jamaica, the percolating rhythms of his childhood home in Miami, and the world of jazz that has beckoned and captivated him in all his travels. The best part? He makes it all look like so much fun. Featuring musicians from around the globe who are just as comfortable with all kinds of amorphous rhythms: hard bop energy shooting through elements of Latin, R&B, deep funk and even drum nbass, Atkinsons outt takes on every number with condence, skill and exuberant playfulness that could only have come from having tasted the world. ($25-35) Saturday 1/4 8:00pmRose Max and Ramatis Sultry Brazilian vocalist Rose Max tours worldwide with Brazilian acoustic guitar master Ramatis, bringing her sweetly haunting voice to every performance. Born in Brazil and trained by some of its greatest musicians, she is a three-time recipient of the Brazilian Press Award for Best Female Brazilian Singer Residing and Performing in the USA. Latin Grammy-nominated Rose Max and Ramatis may come from Rio de Janeiro, the land of bossa nova, but their music is also infused with the rich inuences of samba, jazz, and world music Rose & Ramatis will be joined for a special performance at the Arts Garage by pianist Mike Orta, bassist Paul Shewchuk, and drummer Goetz Kujack. ($25-35) Friday 1/ 10Opening Night: Theatre at Arts Garage THE HUMMINGBIRD WARS by Carter W. LewisWed-Fri 7:30pm, Sat & Sun 2:00pm thru 2/2/14 A hummingbird is always just a few hours away from starving. Warren wonders, who can live like that? as he ghts against middle-class extinction and the onslaught of threatening social media, deceptive cable companies, pharmaceutical invasion, a crippled economy, his ooding basement, and the mysterious appearance of guns throughout his home. When his wife disappears in the societal war on America, the soldier in him emerges, and he decides to ght back. ($30-$45) Saturday 1/11 8:00pmCalvin Newborn/Al Waters Sextet Meet guitar legend Calvin Newborn: He played on B.B. Kings rst recordings, taught Elvis how to dance, and tore up the Big Apple in the heyday of bop. Born and raised in Memphis, in the heart of the citys gutbucket blues scene, Calvin paid his dues on Beale Street when R&B was king. His impeccable jazz pedigree was honed at New York City recording sessions (and in smoky after-hours joints) alongside players like Jimmy Forrest, Hank Crawford, Charles Mingus, and Earl Hines. The last living member of Memphis infamous Newborn Family jazz dynasty, guitarist Calvin Newborn is an excellent melodic interpreter, plays with great uidity and blues sensibility, and can smoothly execute complex chord progressions or subtly accompany vocalists.

38 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple Parade Productions presents The Last Schwartz ...Rollicking, sad, shocking, goofy, and thoughtful. It is comic drama ring on all cylinders, a superb work... ~The W ashington Post Parade Productions will present Deborah Zoe Laufers The Last Schwartz from January 30th through February 23rd at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Centers Studio Theatre. Focusing on a family in ux gathered together on one fateful weekend, the play received unanimously glowing reviews when it debuted at Florida Stage in 2002. Im thrilled to have Parade Productions give The Last Schwartz a production, says playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer. Its a play thats very close to my heart. Its had a nice life -its had many productions, ran for over six months in LA, and had three options for commercial Off-Broadway productions (all of which fell through!). But its been a while since anyone gave it a whirl. I hope everyone has a blast with it! Laufer has a deep fondness for South Florida and is very connected to its theatrical community. The Last Schwartz was my rst professional production, she explains. I fell in love with Florida Stage it became my professional home for the next ten years. They gave every new play of mine a reading, produced three of my premieres; commissioned me; we collaborated on getting grants. I was down here at least once a year, frequently much more. Maybe because of that, I think Ive had more productions of my plays in Florida than anywhere else, she continues. At least ten that I can think of and several readings and short plays. Ive also taught for the past two years at the Playwright Development Program through the MiamiDade County Department of Cultural Affairs. I was included in the One-Minute Play Festival as a Florida Playwright. It really is a second home (and my brother lives in Boca!). The Last Schwartz will be directed by Kim St. Leon, and will feature Ken Clement, Kim Ostrenko, Betsy Graver, Mark Della Ventura, Matt Stabile, and Candace Caplin. The Last Schwartz will have one preview performance on January 30th, 2014. It will open on January 31st, and will run through February 23rd, with performances Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. Ticket prices are $35 ($30 for groups of 15 or more).

The Boca Raton Theatre Guild ( presents Marilyn: Forever BlondeSunny Thompsons dazzling performance is nothing short of a beautifully astute, highly credible portrait that honors the lm and pop icons timeless legacy with captivating pull. ~Dayton City Paper ( BOCA RATON, FL ( A photo shoot in the summer of 1962. As screen icon Marilyn Monroe poses for her photographer she nds herself wondering what it might be like if she had it to do all over again. In Marilyn: Forever Blonde, the legendary actress reveals much of what we know but even more about what we dont know of the roller coaster ride she took from the orphanage to the silver screen. It is a fascinating and provocative journey. The Boca Raton Theatre Guild will present Marilyn: Forever Blonde for a limited, three day run at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Centers Studio Theatre from January 9th 11th. The production is part of the BRTGs recently announced extended season. Marilyn: Forever Blonde, stars acclaimed actress Sunny Thompson, and has won a dozen major awards including Best Special Theatrical Event of the Year, Best Leading Actress in a Play, One of the Years Top Ten Productions and Best Touring Production. It has played throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, England and New Zealand. Critics have consistently and unanimously praised Thompsons compelling and nuanced performance as Marilyn. Playwright Greg Thompson painstakingly researched all aspects of Monroes life all the words spoken in the play have been documented as being Marilyns own. Marilyn: Forever Blonde features 17 songs by some of the greatest songwriters in show business; Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, and Johnny Mercer are all represented, and Monroe performed each of the musical numbers featured in the production in her lms. Marilyn: Forever Blonde is directed by Stephanie Shine, Artistic Director of the Memphis Shakespeare Company. The play was written by Greg Thompson, who has produced dozens of award-winning shows throughout the world. The play languished on the shelf for more than a dozen years before Thompson found the right actress to play the part. I found Marilyn Monroe impersonators who couldnt act, and many wonderful actresses who just didnt seem to give off the sexual playfulness of Monroe, says Thompson. I didnt even think of Sunny as Marilyn until she put on a Marilyn styled wig to do a parody in her stage show. But Thompson turned the offer down, explaining that no woman should ever have to be compared with Marilyn Monroe. However after two years of nagging Thompson nally got his way. It took nearly 15 years to make it happen, he says. If Id had to wait another 15 years Im afraid I might have forgotten what it was about Marilyn Monroe that turned me on in the rst place! ( T ickets for Marilyn: Forever Blonde are on sale now and can be purchased on line at or by calling 866-811-4111. Performances are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and on Friday and Saturday at 2 pm.Broadways Tommy Tune at the International Polo Club Palm BeachWELLINGTON, FL Tommy Tune is used to sharing the stage with the greatest names on Broadway.

The trio of respected artists will deliver a historic recreation/interpretation of Elton Johns music, based specically on the superstars live trio tour arrangements from the early seventies. No wigs, no costumes just three great musicians performing the early music of a seminal artist. The event is presented by MUSICWORKS. Elton Johns studio/recording budgets were substantial, but from 1970 to 1972 his touring budgets were small by comparison. As a result, he was forced to restructure the arrangements of his albums and tour as a trio, since he had no money for a full band. Pagano, Kazee and Conte painstakingly scoured the net for rare video, soundboard mixes, bootleg recordings and even Eltons own home demosin shaping their collective vision of Eltons Trio Period, they blur the line slightly between replication and innovation. No one has ever tackled the live trio tour arrangements in this way before. The Gospel/Funk of Take Me To The Pilot, the soulful storytelling of Levon and Amoreena, the epic-sounding Burn Down The Mission, the countried Country Comfort and the grand scale of Madman Across The Water are just a few of the fantastic chapters that make up the Early Elton songbook.

The Delray Beach Pineapple JANU ARY 2014 41


42 JANUARY 2014 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By Dianne E. Adams Special to The Pineapple Have you been looking in the mirror for the last 365 days and saying I need to do something? You may not know exactly what you want to do, so you have been putting it off for a long time. Maybe you just broke up with your beau or you are looking for that dream job. Whatever the reason, it is the time for big, or even not so big changes. When I am doing a clients hair, whether it is a new color, a few highlights, a new shaggy cut, or a full head of extensions, I can see the excitement in their eyes. Something powerful happens when you walk into a salon looking one way, and walk out looking another. It may sound over, the top but it can really change your life. There are lots of fun hair trends for 2014 and the great thing is you can pick and choose what works best for you. When you book your appointment tell you stylist that you need some extra time for a consultation because youre looking for a change. Look at magazines and the internet for ideas that you may be interested in. Together you can formulate a plan to make some fantastic changes in 2014. You have the option to do it all at once, or feel free to take your time and change your look over a few appointments. Your stylist will know what kind of girl you are and how far they can push the envelope. It is our job to push the envelope, but feel free to push back, but remember, change is good. While it may be scary, the results will be exciting and fresh. There are lots of hair trends for 2014, and not all of them are for every person. Color trends are bolder, meaning highlights are less subtle and more in your face. If you have hair that is over all one color, that color is bolder as well. No middle of the road browns this year. Its all or nothing. The beauty of this is you have the power to change as much or as little as you want, and you will feel differently about yourself. Moving on to the cut, bobs are always en vogue, however this year asymmetrical bobs are making a big comeback. Have your stylist cut 2 inches different on one side and swoop the other towards your face and you will rock this look. My personal fave is the shag. Yes you heard me, an updated 80s shag. It is such an easy style to pull off because it is perfect in its messiness. It is easy to maintain because of all of the layers. Once you have the cut, you can mess it up by adding mousse on damp hair, ip your head over and blow away. Flip your head back up and use a texturizing hair spray for the nishing touches. You will look like you just got out of a convertible, subtle and very sexy. Super straight styles are on the way out the door. If you love it and I still do. Make it current by pumping up the volume in the crown by using a texture powder, then run your hands through it to make it just a bit messy. 2014 can be your signature year by making some changes. Maybe you move into that new apartment, buy a new car, ditch your not so great boyfriend, nd the job of your dreams. Enhance your changes by changing your hair because in 2014 I want to see new hair for a new you. Dianne E. Adams is owner-stylist of Studio Seven Hair in Pineapple Grove.

A selfproclaimed foodie, The Kidd visits with the establishments owners, chefs, staff and customers to provide viewers with an insiders look at local restaurants. In this installment, The Kulinary Kidd visits one of Delray Beachs most iconic locations, Ellies 50s Diner.My Mission as the Kulinary Kidd is to show that healthy, fun, non-boring, and tasty choices for kids are available at Delray Beach restaurants. Ellies 50s Diner is certainly one of the most fun and entertaining places to eat in all of Delray Beach. Everything about Ellies shouts the 50s. From the pink and black retro sign with an old muscle car parked under it, to the old school juke box in the entry way, you know right away that Ellies is unlike any other restaurant around. Its like going back in time! The smiling servers are wearing poodle skirts, 50s music is playing, and great food is served up with satisfying portions. Somewhere, Elvis and Marilyn are smiling. But its not just the decor and 50s museum-like experience that has a 50s feel to it. Its the heaping helpings of home cooked meals served by really nice people. Ellie and her husband Bob have been in the food business for a long time, and the authentic diner has been serving Delray Beach locals for years. Ellies is open seven days a week and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu is not only huge, its fun too, as all the menu selections have been given 50s songs names. You can order the BarbaraAnn the Chantilly Lace or the Long, Tall, Sally. On my visit, I went right to the kids menu and ordered Let the Little Girl Dance. This was a tasty mountain of freshly prepared chicken ngers and fries that were as good as I have ever had. I also enjoyed an ultra-thick chocolate malt, made from real ice cream. Needless to say, I did not leave Ellies hungry. My parents were also impressed with the quality and volume of their meals. Mom enjoyed Only You, which is a generous portion of homemade meatloaf, real mashed potatoes and gravy, and vegetable. She said the meatloaf reminded her of her moms. Dad had the Tuesday special, My Special Angel, a homemade chicken potpie, and a fresh garden salad. He then completed his effort with a slice of blueberry pie. Ellies 50s Diner is a really fun place for kids and serves the kind of food we love. But it is also a great place for adults too. Ellies 50s Diner has all the menu items that our parents love, at prices theyll love even more. They also serve up a full line of adult beverages and have a great Happy Hour. The outdoor patio is huge and indoors, they have two private rooms for groups of almost any size. Ellies can cater and coordinate wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, mitzvahs, engagement parties, company picnics, grand openings, corporate catering and fund raising events, birthday and holiday parties, beach parties, barbecues, picnics, fairs and festivals, school functions, church and religious gatherings, and class reunions or family reunions. Your event can be held at Ellies, or the location of your choosing. So the next time you get a hankering for some really good home cooked food or are planning a really special event, I suggest you wake up little Suzie and head to Ellies 50s Diner. Tell Bob and Ellie the kid sent you. You can see The Kulinary Kidds visit to Ellies 50s Diner and other episodes at 50s Diner 2410 North Federal Highway in Delray Beach (561) 276-7716 Green Cay Farms Thomas Produce Alderman Organic Farms Bistro Blends Olive Oils & Balsamic Vinegars Volker Farms J.W.W.

2 15th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest T he Delray Beach Pineapple Ellen Negley2014 Garlic Fest Poster ArtistFor me, watercolor is the perfect medium although I will agree at times it can be frustrating and very unforgiving. Its elusive, unpredictable and has a mind of its own. One minute the colors are bold and electric and the next theyre delicate and transparent. Maybe thats what keeps me interested because when I look back at some my rst paintings, its a small miracle that I continued to paint! One things for sure, if I painted every day for the rest of my life, I still wouldnt know all there is to know about watercolor. My paintings are a reection of my travels. Its what I love to do. Traveling and painting have a lot in common... theres always something new to discover. For my subjects, I choose busy, urban settings where I can use lots of color and have people bustling about. Lately that often includes boats and palm trees, a reection of my current tropical surroundings. The more I paint, the more I move toward abstraction. I don t strive for picture-perfect representation. I care less and less about accuracy and think more about composition and color. I often move things around for compositions sake although I rarely eliminate elements to make a pretty picture. If there happens to be telephone poles in the scene, theyll likely end up in my painting! Please visit my website at I can also be found at facebook. com/NegleyWatercolors And I have a shop on etsy: www. For thousands of years, human beings have gathered together at festivals and fairs to celebrate religion, the harvest and the arts. Festivals and fairs give families, friends and communities an opportunity to gather and enjoy each others company and offered relief from the hardships of daily life and a chance to renew the human spirit. Delray Beach is blessed with a plethora of festivals and fairs but for many the height of the festival season is the Delray Beach Garlic Fest. Now in its fteenth year, The Garlic Fest is truly a unique Delray Beach tradition. It was started by a group of locals as a means to raise funds for local non-prot organizations dedicated to childrens arts and activities and it is still run by those local organizations today! This year it will surpass $500,000 in charitable contributions to the 16 organizations and the 500 community volunteers they represent. The Delray Beach Garlic Fest is a gathering that renews the communal spirit and it enriches the fabric of Delray Beach life. Renewal is the theme of the 15th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest. It reects our commitment to bringing you something new and different each year in entertainment and to educate you in a fun way. We believe that the 15th edition of the Garlic Fest will be the best ever! And we do not make that promise lightly! A new presenting sponsor, Heineken, joins us for the 15th edition of the Garlic Fest. Our heartfelt thanks to Heineken for supporting the festival and welcome to the Garlic Fest family. Back by popular demand is an old friend, Italian Rose, with their lineup of innovative garlic products. And from Naples, Florida, we want to welcome Jimmy Ps Butcher Shop. Fans have called Jimmy Ps the best butcher shop in America! Over the past ve years, The Garlic Fest has brought great music to South Florida. Seminal performances by Buddy Guy, G Love & Special Sauce, The Waiters and Lifehouse in the last three years reect our commitment to great music. This year, we are proud to bring one of the most requested bands by our Garlic Head fans on Friday, February 7, 2014, Collective Soul. With seven number one hits including Shine, The World I Know and Precious Declaration, the band from Stockbridge, Georgia will rock this seaside town. On Saturday, February 8, 2014, we will feature a band that sold out three shows at Madison Square Garden and three shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 30 minutes. Yet, they have never played Florida! The band is called Dispatch and we guarantee you that it will be a concert to remember! To quote Brad Corrigan, one of Dispatchs three singers and multi-instrumentalists, Weve been called the biggest band nobodys ever heart of. People either know everything about us or they know nothing. There never seems to be any middle ground. Listen to The General or Bang Bang online and you will be hooked! The renewal theme continues at Garlic Chef Stadium with the introduction of our food waste and hunger awareness program. Waste to Taste. Nearly 72 billion pounds of food are wasted in the United States each year. Waste to Taste seeks to raise public awareness of the potential to utilize our food products wisely at home and to help eradicate hunger in the United States in our lifetimes! Reigning Garlic Chef Champion, local Chef Bruce Feingold of Dadas is sharpening his knives and kitchen skills to repeat his amazing culinary performance of last year. While we have many returning artists and crafters coming back to Garlic Fest, we have over 30 new vendors bringing a variety of food products, arts and crafts. Old friends like Kenny The Tin Man Hoff and Mike Syphrits Crushable Hats return while new artist Haiyan Wang, brings his Pop Art along with Doug Thomas and his 1000 Oaks Barrel Co. Doug brings his American White Oak Barrels, Barrel Dog Collars, Barrel Canteens, Barrel Humidors, Infused Cigars and other Barrel like products. So Garlic Heads, get ready to regale, rejoice, refresh and renew at the 15th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest presented by Heineken on February 7-9, 2014. For more information visit our website at
