May just may be my favorite month in Delray he weather is still good, the days are long and the crowds are starting to thin. It’s a great time to venture down-

town, especially in the evening for a stroll and maybe a glass of wine.

There was a time, not too long ago, when Delray was a very,

very seasonal place. It was pretty much over after the Delray Af-

fair which was held the week after Easter to milk the most out of the season as possible.

Today, while the avenue slows down it never quite stops and

that’s a good thing. But as we enter the long, hot spring and sum-

mer months it is important to consider the plight of our independent merchants and restaurants and continue to shop local.

Atlantic Ave Magazine is all about promoting local businesses

and services and it’s a privilege and a pleasure to spotlight our talented business community.

In this issue, we bring you more of what makes Delray the “it”

town on the East Coast according to the New York Post, which just did a major feature on the city.

We’ll also spotlight newly elected Commissioner Jordana

Jarjura who begins her political career right here in her home-

town. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jordana since she was a

bright star at Atlantic High School. Today, she is a rising star and accomplished land use lawyer. We expect great things from her tenure in local office.

We also give our suggestions for Spring activities with a list of

“can’t miss” events proving that Delray is a year-round destination. While we are grateful to the New York Post for their discovery,

at Atlantic Ave Magazine we’ve known that Delray Beach has been a special place for years.

We remain grateful to our readers, advertisers and supporters

for allowing us to share the city’s charms every month. 561.257.2511 @thebiostation +thebiostation

Mullin now sits on the Palm Beach County Corporate Board of Directors, which oversees the Naoma Donnelley Haggin Delray Beach Boys & Girls Club in addition to the other twelve clubs.

delray under $50 By Darien Arden


Now that Delray Beach is a rising star in the art, culture and social scene, it might seem a little difficult to find affordable activities, shops or restaurants. I am here to prove you wrong. Delray Beach offers a mix of high-end boutiques with laid-back restaurants, and events for the whole family or nightclubs for night owls. Here is what you can do in Delray Beach in May for $50 or less.


ho’s ready to dip their chip in a big, fat bowl of salsa? This girl. May is National Salsa Month and what can trump dancing salsa while eating salsa? Nada. If you’re feeling my groove, then make sure you put a fire-roasted red pepper drawing on your calendar because there’s a fiesta to attend. The 16th Annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, held May 3, is presented by the Hispano-Latino Cultural Alliance and The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and is a great way to immerse yourself in Mexican heritage and pride. The Fiesta is held from 11 a.m. to midnight and includes Mariachi bands and local Hispanic bands, folkloric dances, children’s area with

arts, crafts and games, Mexican food and other vendors, and merchandise vendors. Not only that, but there are also Chihuahua races, piñatas, costume contests, live entertainment and more. I don’t know about you but I’m totally in just for the salsa, guacamole, tamales, arepas, cerveza…[burp]… and some good dancing doesn’t hurt either. The Cinco de Mayo Fiesta is held at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts outdoor pavilion and grounds and you are encouraged to bring your lawn chair and umbrella, so let’s plan to party. The Delray Beach Center for the Arts is located at 51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit or call (561) 243-7922 for more information.


’m sad to see it go and I really don’t want to talk about it, so I’m just going to say it: It’s the last day of the GreenMarket! Noooo. May is Family Wellness Month so grab the entire family and head to the best place to start your Saturday. The outdoor marketplace is open for perusing on May 10 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and you’re guaranteed to walk away with a mountain of goodies. If your family is looking for fresh eggs and raw milk, grass fed beef and homemade soaps, veggies and raw juices galore, plants, baked goods and more, you’re in luck because there’re more than 60 vendors to fulfill your desires. There’s also live entertainment, a playground area and kid’s activities, so the whole brood can find something pleasurable. Grab the family and ride the twowheelers to the GreenMarket and just enjoy the day. The GreenMarket is held at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts outdoor pavilion and grounds, 51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit or call (561) 276-7511.

think I may, I think I might, I think I might make a jar that’s tight! May is Creative Beginnings Month and let’s get those hands loose, people. If you’re looking for a better way to enjoy a rainy day, or a get-together that’s more fun than gossiping (cha right), head to Cloud House Pottery and get acquainted with some clay. Fun for beginner, intermediate or advanced levels, you can learn how to wedge and center the clay, pull a cylinder, shape clay and add handles, lids and spouts to finish

pieces, and more. Ian, who’s been doing this for roughly 30 years, guarantees that you will be able to make a piece of art (I might be stretching that last part) and have a blast on the potter’s wheel. Classes are $40 per person, including materials, and are two hours long. You can even bring some friends and make it a pottery party. On subsequent visits you can learn about different methods and techniques, including wood fired, pit fired, raku and saggar, and before you know it you’ll be a clay master. I don’t know about you but this creative beginning is looking really attractive. Cloud House Pottery is located at 354 N.E. Fourth Ave. in Artist’s Alley. Visit or call (561) 862-9222 for more information.


miling’s my favorite! If you haven’t really smiled in a while, you need to take a step back and reprioritize your daily happiness quota and retire your sulk-o-meter. A happy day for me includes my main squeeze, definitely some sunshine, preferably a cold brew, and a dog (if my sister ever lets me borrow Lennon). If you’re barking up the same tree, follow me to the Old School BeerFest, and in honor of National Smile Month, we shall smile the livelong day. The glorious event is held May 9 from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., during which you are invited to indulge (responsibly) in the art of well-crafted beer with unlimited sampling of craft and international beers and cider. Some of the breweries include Sierra Nevada, SweetWater, Florida Beer Company, Full Sail, and our own local Saltwater Brewery (hello, neighbor). Tickets are $30 in advance and $50 for VIP ($10 more for either ticket at the door), and if you spring for VIP, you’ll enjoy early access for exclusive sampling at all beer and wine stations from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The BeerFest also features live music by Pocket Change and Jay Blues Band, game area, food and wine, and even a little station if you need to relax and grab some water. I don’t know about you, but my grin is ear to beer, oops, I mean ear. The Old School BeerFest is located at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts outdoor pavilion and grounds at 51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit or call (561) 243-7922 for more information or to purchase tickets.


haven’t been able to reap any benefits from my garden because, well, I haven’t tried to have a garden. Something about going through three lucky bamboo plants in a very short period of time tells me not to try. So, while I decide, I like to go to other gardens and reap the fringe benefits. Gifts from the Garden Month blooms in May and before summer is in full spring, head outdoors to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens and enjoy all that land has to offer. If you’d like a stroll and a roll, grab a partner on May 9 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and enjoy the sounds of taiko drums, the sights of a bountiful garden and yummy sushi. This is a great way to start your weekend and you’ll feel like you’re on a mini stay-cation. Admission is only $8 per adult and taiko drumming performance tickets cost an additional $2 per person. Make some time on Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to peek at the World Bonsai Day, where you can relish in the newly renovated bonsai exhibition, observe bonsai demonstrations, and purchase your own tree! The event is free with admission to the Gardens ($14 for adults). The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens are located at 4000 Morikami Park Road.

Caffé Luna Rosa

TOnY’s Deli

By Greg Miller – Sous-Chef

By Andrew Castardi & Bob Conte



f there is a secret to our success here at Caffé Luna Rosa, its consistency – in the quality of the food, in the service and in the people who prepare and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. In our kitchen, we consistently use the highest quality products in meals prepared the same way by the same people as they’ve been for several years. This makes sure that no matter when our guests visit, their meals will always be to the highest standard. Because we use the freshest and best products, it’s easy to make food taste good but then we add the Caffé Luna Rosa touch and that makes everything even better. Since joining the kitchen staff here six years ago, I’ve had the chance to learn and grow in a family-like environment that encourages creativity and innovation. Here, you have the freedom to experiment and create your own dishes as long as they meet Caffé Luna Rosa’s high standards. One of my favorite innovations now on the brunch menu is homemade corned beef hash with pastrami, onions and peppers.

A Joyous Fatalism

West Palm Beach native Timothy Siniscalchi, 25, is set to publish his first book this month. Timothy puts a fresh spin on traditional aphorisms in A Joyous Fatalism, which is being published by Cap & Bells Press. Timothy truly is a local. He graduated from Dreyfoos School of the Arts, graduated with a bachelor’s from UF and is currently working toward an MA in French Literature at FAU. The book features 138 aphorisms, including: “A moral action is most beautiful when people don’t take the action because it’s moral” and 36 May 2013 2014 |

“Generosity says, ‘I don’t remember giving you anything.’” The book also includes photographs by local photographer Gwen Gove. Timothy will be returning to his alma mater (Dreyfoos) to speak with students and staff about his experience; he also has a book signing lined up for Liberty Book Store in WPB.

Update on our Super Volunteer Ron Gilinsky

Ronfest fund raiser was held at the Elks Club and a fund raiser was held at Deck 84 to help Ron with his medical bills. Between the two events about $10,000 was raised. Also “ Wheel From the Heart” donated a car to Ron so he can get around. Following is an open letter from Ron. “My story begins with me suffering a massive Heart Attack, Severe

Cardiac Arrest, in a Coma for 4 days & Flat Lining 3 times. I am a survivor. I was not about to leave Delray yet. I fought very hard to get back to where I am today. I have a lot more good to do in Delray. I am very grateful for the Doctors & Nurses at Delray Medical Center. I am also very grateful to Rosa Tumazos for taking me in for 3 weeks and taking care of me. I owe a huge thanks for those that cooked for me and offered to transport me around to doctors appointments. A very big thank you to Candace, Steve and Stuart and the entire Board of Directors from “Wheels From the Heart” for the vehicle they presented to me. This is an organization that provides vehicles for needy Single Moms. I am very Grateful and Blessed to have everyone who prayed and is still praying for my complete recovery. I am following doctors orders and eating very well.”

Gotta See

By skip sheffield

May 2 “Amazing Spider-Man 2” has Andrew Garfield returning as high school nerd Peter Parker, whose alter ego dons a skin-tight red spandex outfit to become Spider-Man. Peter is one busy fellow as he wraps up high school, romances Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and fights two new villains: Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Rhino (Paul Giamatti). Marc Webb again directs and Felicity Jones is new to the cast. Poor Meghan Jones (Elizabeth Banks) has a particularly rough night in “Walk of Shame.” When she thinks she has failed an audition for a Los Angeles TV news anchor job, Megan is persuaded to have a night on the town. When she wakes up in the morning in a bad part of town in a stranger’s bed with no phone, no money and no car, she learns the gig can be hers after all if she makes the 5 pm. broadcast. The race is on. Steven Brill (“Without a Paddle”) is the writer-director. Additional cast includes James Marsden, Bill Burr, Liz Carrey and Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

38 May 2014 |

May 9 She’s off to see the Wizard, again. “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return” is a computer-generated 3-D animated fantasy by Dan St Pierre and Will Finn, based on “Dorothy of Oz” by Roger Stanton Baum, greatgrandson of original author L. Frank Baum. Lea Michele provides the voice of Dorothy, and Dan Aykroyd is the Scarecrow, James Belushi the Cowardly Lion and Kelsey Grammer the Tin Man. New characters are Oliver Platt as Wiser the Owl and Martin Short as the villainous Jester. “Neighbors” stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as young marrieds with a new baby forced to cope with living next door to a rowdy fraternity house. The cast includes Zack Efron, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Dave Franco and Jake Johnson under the direction of Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). Is it too much to ask for a “Mom’s Night Out”? Evidently yes in a comedy by writer-directors Jon and Andrew Erwin (“October Baby”). Allyson (Sarah Drew and her best friend (Patricia Heaton) entrust their children to their husbands for a grown-up Saturday night outing. What could possibly go wrong? Robert Amaya, Sean Astin and Trace Adkins co-star. Jon Favreau both directs and stars as Carl Casper, the title character of “Chef,” which reunites him with “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2” star Robert Downey, Jr. in a comedy about a high-end chef who loses his job and decides to start a food truck business. Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Sedaris and Oliver Platt co-star. May 16 Toho Studios started it all in 1954 with “Godzilla” (Gojira in Japanese). Godzilla came back bigger and badder than ever in 1998 to terrorize Manhattan. Now the big lumbering monster has returned with two equally nasty buddies in a 3-D thriller starring Aaron Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe and David Straithairn, under the direction of Gareth Edwards (“Monsters 1 and 2”). What this team needs is someone with a “Million-Dollar Arm.” Craig Gillespie (“Fright Night”) directs a Disney Picture purportedly based on the true story of struggling baseball manager JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) who travels to India with a cantankerous retired baseball

scout (Alan Arkin) to create a TV reality show to discover if any Indians have native pitching ability. JB brings back not one but two 18-year-old ace pitchers (Madhur Mittal and Suraj Sharma) to adjust to life in America.

May 23 Original X-Men director Bryan Singer returns to direct a new chapter of the saga “X-Men Days of Future Past” in which characters from the original XMen trilogy join forces with their younger selves to change the past in order to save the future from certain disaster. Got that? Jennifer Lawrence is Raven/Mystique, James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart are Charles Xavier/Professor X, Michael Fassbender and Ian McKellan are Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto and Nicholas Hoult is Hank McCoy/Beast. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are teamed for the third time in “Blended,” a comedy directed by Frank Coraci (“Here Comes the Boom”). After a disastrous blind date, single parents Adam and Drew and their assorted cute kids are thrown back together out of necessity when they are forced to share an African Safari suite.

May 30 Her hair dyed black and done up like Devil’s horns, Angelina Jolie is “Maleficent,” and she is really, really bad - but in a good way in this back story to Walt Disney’s 1959 animated classic “Sleeping Beauty.” Elle Fanning plays the cursed Princess Aurora and Miranda Richardson and Kenneth Cranham are her mom and ad, the Queen and King. Sharlto Copley is her Stefan and Imelda Staunton is Knotgrass. Linda Woolverton, who adapted for the screen “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Lion King” and “Beauty and the Beast,” wrote the screenplay. With a title like “A Million Ways to Die in the West” you just know it has to be a comedy. Seth Macfarlane (“Ted”) directs and stars as Albert, a cowardly sheep farmer who enlists the help of a gunslinger’s wife (Charlize Theron) to win back his hot girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried). The gunslinger is played by Liam Neeson. Giovanni Ribisi is a meek fellow engaged to the town prostitute (Sarah Silverman) who puts out for everyone but him. Keep it classy Seth. | May 2014 39

Advances in Treatment for the Parkinson’s Patient


By Dr. John Conde

PD is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. It is estimated that at least 500,000 people in the United States have been diagnosed with PD. PD belongs to a group of conditions called movement disorders.

It is characterized by four main symptoms: tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia (slowed movement), and postural instability (impaired balance). Cognitive impairments may arise and lead to dementia as many patients with PD may develop difficulty with memory in the advanced stages. In fact, the neuronal dysfunction that occurs in PD (synucleinopathy) is very similar to that which occurs in Alzheimer’s disease (tauopathy). Secondary symptoms may also arise and include: depression, difficulty swallowing and chewing, speech changes, constipation, skin problems, sleep problems, orthostatic hypotension, fatigue, and sexual dysfunction. Treatment advances have been especially numerous in rehabilitative approaches as well as pharmaceuticals and nutraceutical (vitamins and minerals). Thanks to the explosion of research on the brain in the 21st century, we now know that nerve cells can sprout new axons and dendrites, cell ma-

chinery that allows for communication between nerve cells, when stimulated. We also know that when stimulated, these nerve cells are able to produce essential proteins and enzymes that allow the cell to transmit nerve impulses much more rapidly. What does this mean for PD? Well, the stimulation that is being referred to here is what is termed epigenetic or environmental stimulation. In essence, we know that by doing specific neurological therapies or exercises targeting the areas of the brain most affected by PD (basal ganglia, frontal lobe, and brainstem) we can affect the function of these areas and surrounding structures positively. We can improve nerve impulse activity in these regions which in turn improves functionality in PD patients. Metronome therapy is an example of one of the many treatments that are utilized. There are an abundance of studies supporting this therapy for neurodegenerative disorders. It involves timing and coordination and rhythmic movement. It works on what is termed motor timing and truly targets the deficient regions of the brain in PD especially a part of the brain termed the frontal lobe. In regards to pharmaceuticals, most of the drugs focus on preserving and enhancing the brain messenger dopamine. Levodopa, the cornerstone medication in PD, is basically the building blocks for dopamine. Nerve cells can use levodopa to replenish the

dwindling supply of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine agonists actually mimic the activity of dopamine and are usually given with levodopa. MAO-B inhibitors, COMT inhibitors, and anti-cholinergics function to suppress the enzymatic breakdown of dopamine. Lastly, amantadine is an anti-viral medication of which its function in PD is not well understood however its results warrant its use. Concerning nutrients, a plethora of well researched supplements are now being widely utilized and prescribed by physicians treating PD. Of those, Vitamin D3 seems to be the focus of a multitude of studies. Thiamine seems to be receiving a lot of attention as well. Other supplements being looked at include vitamin C, vitamin E, COQ10, creatine, unsaturated fatty acids, sulfur containing compounds, polyphenols, and phytoestrogen. In combination with an anti-inflammatory based diet removing heavy animal fats and increasing cold water fish, greens, and fruits and a low glycemic diet which reduces the intake of simple carbohydrates a favorable condition is promoted internally to achieve maximum nerve activity.

Wise Advice About Wisdom Teeth


BY Dr. Gregory Tull

Regardless of your age...” sub headline and replace with “Not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed, but everyone should have a consultation for evaluation

history The Turks call them Twenty Year Teeth because they erupt post-adolescently. The Koreans call them Love Teeth because they begin to stir at about the same age as our youthful passions. The Thais call them Huddling Teeth because they try to crowd into the back of the mouth. We call them Wisdom Teeth because they erupt when we’re older and (supposedly!) wiser. Technically, they are simply our third molars, and are the teeth furthest back in the four corners of our mouth (two each on top and bottom). Anthropologists believe wisdom teeth were the evolutionary answer to our ancestor’s early diet of course, rough foods, like leaves, roots, nuts and meats that required more chewing power. Our modern diet includes softer foods, and along with the use of forks, spoons and knives, has made the need for wisdom teeth nonexistent. As a result, evolutionary biologists now classify wisdom teeth as vestigial organs, or body parts that have become functionless, or near worthless, due to evolution and a refined diet. Complications Generally, wisdom teeth try breaking through the gums between the ages of 16 and 20, and they can (and often do) cause considerable discomfort, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. When there isn’t sufficient room for them to emerge unimpeded, they are said to be impacted. 44 May 2014 |

Possible likely complications from wisdom teeth may include: chronic discomfort in the mouth; abscess of the tooth or gums; infection; bite issues, which cause improper contact between the upper and lower teeth; and excessive buildup of food and plaque trapped in the teeth and gums, leading to decay and/or gum disease at some point. Although rare, more serious complications may occur if the surrounding tooth sac is untreated. The impacted tooth can become filled with fluid and enlarge to form a cyst. As the cyst grows, it may erode the surrounding bone and jeopardize the stability and health of the adjacent teeth, bone and nerves. If left untreated, the cyst could possibly develop into a tumor, requiring even more aggressive and disfiguring surgery. What To Do In general, wisdom teeth that cause pain, infection or bite problems are usually- and should be!- removed. But not all problems are painful or visible. Even wisdom teeth that cause no apparent or immediate problems are particularly

vulnerable to disease. In fact, The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation have found that even those wisdom teeth that have grown into the mouth in a normal, upright position may be as prone to disease as those that are impacted! Moreover, the older we get, the more prone they are to disease, and the more difficult they are to remove, requiring a doubled recovery time. About two-thirds of the population will require removal of their wisdom teeth at some point in their life. Simply put, not everyone needs their wisdom teeth removed, but everyone should have a consultation for evaluation. If you haven’t yet had your wisdom teeth removed, make an appointment with your dentist to assess the position and condition to determine if removal is in your best interest.

Teen Skin Care: Part 2


By Kristin Heather

If you have a tween or teen daughter struggling with her skin, have her read this article. Or better yet, read it together. But first, tell her how beautiful she is.

Last month, I touched upon the stigma around teen acne and how it is affecting young women, their skin care habits, and their future skin. After years of working with teen skin, I have derived some incredible insights that allow me to treat acne holistically. When acne comes up in conversations at dermatologist offices, the spa, or in commercials, you rarely hear anything about emotions. Yet, just as the skin is a tool to witness your physical health, it is also one

46 May 2014 |

that reacts to unexpressed emotions. As a young girl begins the complicated physical and emotional process of becoming a woman, she is experiencing new feelings as well as past ones that may have been too mature for her former self to process. My advice to young women: realize that what is going on inside is showing up on your skin, but don’t look at it as such a horrible thing. Look at it as an opportunity. If you have acne, your skin is working! The pimples, dryness/oiliness are coming up because of some internal imbalances. When addressed, the skin will continue to work, butthe result will be lustrous, clear, and glowing skin. As weird as it seems, be thankful for your pimples:they are allowing you to go deeper, to learn about your body, and to develop habits that will mold the future you. Now, to start treating your skin and knowing your body: • Go organic! Whoever thought that putting a load of chemicals on your skin will make you more beautiful is just not thinking clearly. There are natural ingredients that can make skin strong and canteach skin how to manage the outer world to face the future without unnecessary exposure. • Food is a great way to get to know your body. It’s time to start paying attention to what you are eating. I often start any client out with some form of a detoxbecause when we start to clean out our bodies, we start to understand ourselves deeper and to develop healthy

habits. Cutting out processed foods, dairy, and grains is a good start; these can cause inflammation, which will show up on the skin. However, there is a wide variety of detox and eating habits. It is about finding which foods are the best for you and your skin. • Express yourself!Femininity carries with it a wealth of emotions, and it is time to start recognizing them, embracing them, and treating yourself(and your skin) with compassion. Expressing feelings happens to be an amazing skin treatment, as well as a great habit to bring into adulthood. • Seek professional skin care. It is important to keep your skin clean as it heals; professional extractions are the safest way to decongest the skin while building up its strength. Once these steps are taken, you will be the expert on what works for you. Good skin care habits begin with awareness of what affects your skin, physically and emotionally. Yet, they become your own when you discover them!Every young girl deserves to have beautiful skin, to feel graceful, connected with her body, and powerful, as she becomes a woman. Do not let pimples take that away from you. Use them as a tool and learn to love yourself even more. As a forerunner in modern skin care services and anti-aging, Kristin founded Nourishe in Delray Beach and currently heads aesthetic science research and development. Kristin’s revolutionary approach to DNA Repair and her extensive training with some of the best professionals in the industry has made her the expert in healing and improving the skin naturally and holistically.

Liposculpture Medicine


By Thomas C. Balshi, MD

The fat that drives some people crazy… may be the key to improving dementia.

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is one of the most devastating illnesses that the human race has ever faced. It literally destroys the brain, shrinking it like a raisin over time. The toll of AD is not only measured in hundreds of billions of dollars in health care costs and millions of deaths, but also in the personal and family tragedy that comes with severe memory loss. Alzheimer’s Disease, the most common form of dementia (loss of brain function) is the 6th leading cause of death, and affects 1 in 8 people -- more than breast cancer. As of 2010, there were 35.6 million people with Alzheimer’s disease in the world, and this number is expected to double every 20 years. Remarkably, scientists and doctors can now pre-clinically predict who may be a candidate for Alzheimer’s Disease even before patients are symptomatic. Up until recently that rich information was simply just data. That may all have just changed! In the first study of its kind, researchers at Korea’s leading university and the RNL Bio Stem Cell Technology Institute, recently announced the results of a study suggesting an astounding possibility: adult stem cells (located in our own fat) may not only have a positive effect on those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, they may actually act to prevent the disease. Using fat-derived adult stem cells from humans, researchers were able to cause Alzheimer’s diseased brains in animal models to regenerate, and to show significant improvements in memory 48 May 2014 |

and learning, reducing the numbers of amyloid plaques. The researchers, for the first time in history, used stem cells to demonstrate regeneration as well as prevention of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s with adult stem cells. Amazingly, all of us have billions of “ready to go” stem cells in our own fat, capable of traversing the blood brain barrier to engraft in the brain, and allowing for potential dramatic cognitive improvement. Delray Beach has played a trailblazing role in positive stem cell research and clinical achievement through Dr. Tom Balshi’s Liposculputer Center. Board certified in both internal medicine and dermatology, Dr. Balshi has been treating patients with their own stem cells for several years. Using his expertise in removing body fat can benefit many patients cosmetically but the looming potential for fat cells to fight disease is amazing. Once,

removing fat was just for cosmetic concerns, but now there are much more important therapeutic reasons to do so, and it gives a whole new concept from disposing of people’s fat as medical waste, to using their fat as the most incredible biologic treatment available to heal them. In a simple “in office” procedure that takes no more than a few hours, sick patients are made well with the use of their own cells. Stem cells are the forefront of medicine, and they hold an astounding ability to carry out a complex, yet completely natural healing process, treating patients with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke patients, Lupus and a host of other conditions.

United we Stand


By Barbara Alfonzo

The word Yoga means to yolk, to unite, to bring together. It connects our mental, physical, and spiritual bodies through breath, movement, awareness, intention, and gratitude.

Yoga is open and available for anyone willing to go beyond the superficial levels of life; it invites you to dive deep into the realms of your being, so that you can experience life at your highest potential. Yoga allows for expanded awareness of the collective consciousness. To accomplish this we need to audit our thoughts, seeking out limiting beliefs that cause us to suffer in every area of our lives. In order to do this we must have a process. Yoga provides a process in which we can inquire within and identify the fears that keep us small and disconnected towards our evolved self. Yoga thus cultivates an ongoing awareness state that helps us to free the mind from limitations. Why thoughts? Because thoughts create our reality, the way that we think reflects on the way that we feel, the way that we feel reflects on the way that we speak, the way that we speak reflects on the way that we move, the way that we move reflects on the way that we interact in our relationships, thus creating our reality, all stemming from our thoughts. This is why we sit in meditation and inquire within. After inquiring within, you are invited to set intentions for your practice. Then, answer the simple question “Why are you here?” What’s your goal? What do you want to give or take? This allows the yogis to move on purpose. When we set intentions or goals, whether in class or in our life, there is a purpose for doing what we choose to do, thus moving and living on purpose. From the beginning to the end I re-MIND everyone to breathe, to take a deep inhale and a deep exhale, at any moment that they find themselves wondering, as it is the awareness of the breath that allows us to come back to the present, here and now. Breathing is the

50 May 2014 |

life sustaining practice more important than food and water for our survival, as without breath we cannot live for more than a few minutes. Breathing deeply improves the quality of our life, our emotions, and our ability to be more fully present in our experiences. I truly

believe that the best thing we can do for our wellbeing is to breathe deeply, to synchronize our movements with our breath to maximize both physical and emotional benefits of yoga, and create a grounded, meditative experience. Come on, try it! Inhale deep through the nose….Exhale deep though the nose…. Aaaahhhh how do you feel? Alive?! Repeat 2 more times. Do this every hour on the hour, at work, in the car, at home doing dishes, and especially when in an argument. Inhale positive thoughts, exhale negative thoughts. Yoga connects us and reminds us to take responsibility for our own health so we can show up in our life committed, authentic, and empowered to take care of each other and our world. Remember everything is connected, your body, mind, and spirit, you and I, the entire universe. This is what “Namaste” means; we acknowledge the light in each other as one. United we Stand.

Lather, Rinse and Repeat


By mark hasche

You’re sitting in the salon chair patiently awaiting your processing timer to go off. Beep! Beep! Beep!

Yes free at last and with a head full of gorgeous new color to show off to all your friends and family. As you’re paying for your services the receptionist asks if you’ll be needing any shampoo, conditioner or styling aids today. You reply with a kind “No, thank you” remembering that you just picked up a bottle of two in one shampoo for five dollars at the supermarket just two

days earlier. Here’s where the lesson begins… If you’re going to shell out top dollar for a great cut and color you should insure your investment with the proper salon professional hair care products. This way the stunning highlights and lowlights should maintain their color till your next salon visit. The difference between salon bought products versus drug store products are as follows: If you look on the shelves of any drug store you will see products boasting many different claims. They have special ingredients, herbs, and conditioners. It can be quite confusing. Is it as simple as saying you get what you pay for? Many drug store brands claim that they are just as good as the salon brands. The simple truth is that salon products and drug store brands can have the same ingredients. However, the amounts of those ingredients per bottle are what you really need to know. Most salon quality hair care products have much more of the proteins and vitamins that your hair needs to stay healthy. The drug store brands may have these ingredients, but they have them in much lower quantities. If you read the ingredients list on the bottle you will see that they are all listed but the amounts they contain are not included. The main ingredient in most shampoos is water. The ingredients are listed from highest quantity to lowest quantity however you still can’t tell just exactly how much is in that bottle. All shampoos contain a lathering agent. The drug store brands will usually use one of the following, ammonium lauryl sulfate, ammonium laureth sulfate, or sodium lauryl sulfate. Though these three types will produce a rich lather, they are harder on

your scalp and hair even stripping color in some cases. You will find that most salon brands are highly concentrated and use the gentlest kind despite that fact that it produces much less lather. Salon conditioners will contain more of the important moisturizers and proteins that your hair needs. This means that they have a better chance of penetrating deep into the hair shaft when applied. The drug store brands only need a small amount of these ingredients to claim that they are in the conditioner. Just because they say those helpful moisturizers are in the product does not mean there is enough in there to do anything to help the health of your hair. Split end repairing shampoos are a joke. The only thing that can repair a split end is a sharp pair of shears. The FDA does not regulate these sorts of claims when it comes to shampoo companies. The only part of a shampoo label that the FDA regulates is its list of ingredients. I hope this information will make you think twice or even three times about falling prey to commercial shampoo ads claiming to repair your hair. Until next month this Divo is out!!

Born on January 28, 1987 in the former Soviet Union, Eldar began piano lessons at age 3 and it became quickly apparent that he possessed a special musical gift. At age 10, the family moved to their new hometown of Kansas City, Missouri where he immediately gained the attention of the jazz community. At age 12, he appeared as a featured guest on Marian McPartland’s NPR Radio Show “Piano Jazz”. Two albums followed, and at age 17 he signed as a Sony recording artist with albums that featured such greats as Roy Hargrove, Michael Brecker and Chris Botti. 54 May 2014 | 54 May 2014 |

Sherrié Austin Comes to Delray Australia’s Sherrie’ Austin has been called “a sultry young country music singer…that twang in her voice provides some much-

needed authenticity in excellent pop-country numbers like “Ain’t Goin’ Back” by the New York Times. Who are we to disagree? Austin who is also a songwriter, broke new ground with her 2001 release, “Followin’ a Feelin”. While she had several hits with her first two pop-infused albums and sales close to half a million records, Austin chose to leave Arista, an established label, and sign with the independent Wrensong. Austin got her start in music opening for Johnny Cash in Australia at the age of 14. She later moved to the United States where she took up acting. She is most known in America for playing the role of Pippa McKenna on “The Facts of Life”. She also appeared as “Lady Penelope” on the first season of the TV comedy series “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” starring Will Smith. Austin moved to New York City in 2005 and appeared in the New York Musical Theater Festival’s production of “Bonnie & Clyde”. The following year, Sherrié performed in “Ring Of Fire - The Johnny Cash Musical Show” at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. She also performed in the production of “Warrior”, a musical about the AmericanIndian athlete Jim Thorpe, where described her as “outstanding”. She returned to Nashville in 2006. Sherrié was named one of 2011’s “25 Most Beautiful People” by Nashville Lifestyles Magazine. If you love the Nashville sound and singer-songwriters, don’t miss Austin at the intimate Arts Garage.

HISTORY AND HERITAGE One Of Delray’s Finest Consignment Shops By diane feen

According to the owner of Second Time Around Delray, their storefront windows are eye catching candy for designer enthusiasts. “Our displays of Chanel, Louis and Hermes bring everyone to a standstill. But don’t hesitate on that one thing that caught your attention because it will not be there tomorrow,” said owner Jen Davis.

There is one thing that is static however, and that’s that Second Time Around Delray is a local retail treasure with ladies designer handbags, clothing and jewelry that rival upscale boutiques. The other norm at this SE 4th Avenue consignment boutique (behind the Green Owl Diner) is that customers are loyal in their devotion to this 35-year-old business. “Whenever I am in Delray I come here to shop. I never leave without buying something special,” said Stephanie, who walked out of Second Time Delray with a big bag of clothing that included a silk St. John top.

There is also something else more intangible at this consignment shop – and it’s the heritage of both the store and the woman who owns it – Jen Davis. Jen took the reins of Second Time Around Delray seven years ago when her business mentor (and friend) Ellie Lowry decided it was time to retire. “After 20 years successfully growing the business, Ellie yearned to slow down and move to the rolling hills and horse country near Mount Dora, close to her grandchildren,” said Jen, who has known Lowry since she was a teenager.

OWNER JEN davis 56 May 2014 |

Lowry was one of the few businesswomen in the early days of downtown Delray Beach commerce. She was a Rotary board member and supported local charities. She also knew firsthand about her protégé’s uniqueness. “Jen was just a kid when I first saw her. She was a sweet teenager with waist length blonde hair and a serious nature that I liked. She was eager and curious about my shop (even back then) and when the right time came, I was happy to hand the business I loved over to her,” said Lowry. The history that precedes this thriving modern consignment boutique - that sells Chico’s to Chanel and Gap to Gucci - is built on trust and Delray lore. Jen was in high school at Pope John Paul in Boca Raton when she first started shopping at Second Time Around. “I adored this shop. It was like a treasure hunt but I never imagined I would earn a living doing something I loved so much. I still love connecting with shoppers (and consigners) and getting to know each of them. The store - and my customers - gives me unending joy each day.” Part of the reason that Jen is so deeply connected to Delray Beach is because she was born here. Her parents, Jim and Maureen Maas were teachers at Delray Elementary School (which is now Old School Square) and her uncle Marty taught there as well. “I’ve seen so many changes in Delray since my youth. Delray was a small and quiet town. Not so much anymore!” Jen also befriended another local consignment shop owner while still in high school.

The shop, called Renaissance, was owned by a friendly nurturing woman named Amparo. “Ampi is a beautiful and vivacious Peruvian woman who has indefatigable energy and a zest for living. I was so lucky to have her as one of my mentors,” said Jen, who can often be seen marveling at the designer merchandise that flows into the store on a daily basis. Her friend Ampi has not left the scene either. The roles may be reversed but Ampi relishes helping Jen at Second Time Around Delray. “Ampi brings a special type of infectious joie de vie to my boutique. We have known each other for four decades.” Apmpi is not only part of the Second Time Around family, but she has seen the store grow and thrive for many years. “Second Time Around Delray is like the Saks Fifth Avenue of consignment shops. Jen works hard to please customers with quality merchandise, good prices and excellent service.” Second Time Around Delray is truly a second time around. Not only are the people who mentored Jen still within ear shot, but their legacy is what has held this upscale consignment shop together so beautifully. So has Jen’s passion for her craft and her store. That’s what prompts local shopper (and

Second Time Around devotee) Stephanie Ross to roam the aisles quite often. “I am buying these Retro burgundy rhinestone earrings that would sell for much more elsewhere, but here they are only $10,” said Ross with a smile. It is this excitement for the unknown – and the demand for more Second Time Around designer handbags, clothing and accessories – that prompted the recent expansion of the shop. It is now double the size and holds more shoppers and more eclectic fashion items. “I knocked down the walls and took over an adjacent space once occupied by The Doll House (another Delray treasure). Thanks to my landlord Dr Bob George, my dream became a reality. The larger space allows us to take in more designer clothing, accessories and other treasures.” As for the future of Second Time Delray, Jen has it all figured out. “Someday I hope my daughter Hannah will run this business. We will all be proud of her when she does. Keeping it in the family just makes sense. That is, if she doesn’t become a psychotherapist like her father John Davis, a local mental health therapist.”


The recent expansion has given new (and loyal) customers more space to discover their own style of material gold. It also allows for more merchandise to be brought into the store. If what goes around comes around then Second Time Around Delray should last another 35 years, or perhaps longer. After all, Jen’s Delray roots are as solid as an Oak Tree and her heart is soft enough to inhale all things glorious about Delray Beach.

The Upscale Dry Cleaner Who Does Much More


By diane feen

Their motto is to be friendly to customers. As a matter of fact, there are so many smiling faces when you walk through the door you could almost mistake Aloha for a dental office. But for Nancy Barbalaco, owner of Aloha Cleaners, friendliness and cleanliness are synonymous. There are other reasons why this retail bastion of cleanliness has garnered so many followers. “We have a plant upstairs and everything brought here stays here. We have full control to make sure everything is

The word Aloha means friendly, hospitable and welcoming. That’s quite an apropos description of the 50-year-old dry cleaner that sits on the corner of NE 2nd Street and Federal Highway.

dry cleaned or wet cleaned correctly,” said Barbalaco, who has owned Aloha for the past 16 years. For starters they have state-of-the-art dry cleaning machines that are constantly monitored to make sure the solvent is clean and the filters are changed. This may seem like a no-brainer to those who drop their clothes off to be washed or dry cleaned, but if you ask Barbalaco she will tell you otherwise. “Some dry cleaners do not change their filters because they are expensive. They also Cleaning facility Operations

cut corners and don’t make sure the solvent is clean. It is expensive to throw out the waste.” But to Barbalaco there is no such thing as saving money when it comes to handling client’s most precious possessions. “I have lived in Delray for the past 14 years and I would not go anywhere else for dry cleaning,” said Katie Degnan. “All of my clients and friends use Aloha because they are super friendly, fast and they do quality work. My clients are all prominent people and they trust Aloha to do an excellent job with their things.” There are a lot of people who feel the same was as Degnan. One of them is hair stylist and colorist Stephanie DiStasi. “They are amazing here. They always get the dye out of my clothes and the customer service is excellent. They are quick and they take good care of me.” If you ever wondered why your white pants or dresses often come back from the dry cleaners looking a little gray – the reason is dirty solvents. To combat that problem Aloha makes sure they distill their solvent every day. The person who watches over the dry cleaning machine to make sure solvents and filters are clean (and equipment is up to perfection) is Nick Barbalaco. If you hear the name Barbalaco used a lot at this dry cleaning establishment the reason is because it’s a family affair. Nancy’s eldest daughter Antonette is in customer service, daughter Angela is the Marketing Director and Manager and her youngest son Nick is

upstairs holding court in front of the dry cleaning machines. Beside the fact that they opened a second drop-off location on West Atlantic Avenue (near the courthouse) Nancy wants everyone to know that Aloha Dry Cleaners is a place where you can bring your most prized possessions without fear of destruction. “We clean and alter designer clothing with prestigious labels such as Valentino, St. John, Luis Vuitton, Armani, Chanel, Gucci and other high-end brands. We recently altered a $20,000 Christian Dior gown. We also clean customer’s teddy bears and US Flags at no cost.” If you talk to Nancy you will find out that she graduated a clothing design school in Italy and that design and apparel is big part of her DNA. “When I bought this business in 1998 I wanted to utilize my knowledge of clothing and fabric. I also wanted to open an upscale dry cleaners because every time I took my clothing to be cleaned I didn’t like the way it looked when I picked it up.” Although Nancy was the first dressmaker to work at Aloha, she has since relegated that task to Margarita, who has 25 years of experience altering men’s and ladies apparel and soft goods. You can go there for alternations of any kind or have a garment transformed completely. There is also a dressmaker at their second location at 401 West Atlantic Avenue – Liliana. Aloha also does a big business wet cleaning clothing and linens. They use organic detergent that do not having

fillers or chemicals and they spot clean everything with a citrus spot remover. “If your clothing has stains from the golf course or tennis courts we can wet wash them to get them sparkling clean. We also dry clean delicate fabrics such as cashmere, wool, silk and acetate.” As a way of giving back to the community Aloha does cleaning free of charge for the Delray Playhouse, the library and the city (the American flag for July 4th festivities and Santa’s Christmas suit). There’s another part to this cleaning equation that Aloha takes seriously – and that is cleaning and ironing linens such as high-end sheets, bedspreads and drapery. “We make sure all our linens are steam pressed by hand. We do such a good job that some of our clients bring their sheets and spreads weekly for us to clean and press.” If you walked around their plant on the second floor you would see that it is as meticulous as its owner’s credo. There is a quiet hush that permeates the premises and kind gentle souls pressing, steaming and washing the precious goods of those who worship at the altar of Aloha Dry Cleaners.

A case of

Ulcerative Colitis


“We are trying to avoid surgery.”

David’s wife Beth did most of the talking; looking at him, you could see why. He was as pale as a sheet. “Dr. Woliner, the last year has been horrible with Dave being hospitalized twice. The last time his hemoglobin got down to ...” “8.3. My gastroenterologist says my colitis is the worst he’s ever seen. He says I need surgery to remove the whole thing.” My colleague, Dr. Mark Hyman, calls Functional Medicine doctors such as myself, “resort doctors”, as we are often the “doctor of last resort.”1 It seems your case is no exception. Tell me more.” “Lots of mucous and blood. Dave can hardly leave the bathroom much less get out of the house to work.” “And mouth ulcers. I can’t eat, but that’s mostly due to the severe belly cramps. I’ve lost 25 pounds in the last 3 weeks.” I looked over his medication list. “Asacol, Prednisone, Prilosec, Pepcid, Zofran, Donnatal, Iron tablets, B12 ... They ever try you on a biologic drug such as Remicade?”2 “That was my GI doctor’s last hope, but I got “Serum Sickness” with fever.”3 “Beth interrupted, “Those TV commercials say all those side effects so quickly. You don’t think you’ll get them until you’ve already got them.” After I did my physical exam, I laid it out straight. “You’re sick enough that I want to admit you to the hospital today. Not for surgery, but for intensive nutritional therapy. However, there are no guarantees, and if I can’t turn things around, surgery is still an option.” “What do you have in mind?” “I’ll fax in admitting orders so you can bypass the ER. Don’t expect to eat anything, as food allergies are one cause of colitis.4 Fortunately, because I was a Nutrition major at Cornell, I learned how to prescribe TPN correctly.“ “TPN?” “Oh, that’s an abbreviation for feeding you by IV. You’re severely malnourished, and that is why you’re still anemic despite the iron and vitamins. Dr. Viteri taught me that patients such as you need up to 280 grams of protein per day!”5 “What else?” “I’ll run some tests for food allergies, as well as vitamin and essential fatty acid deficiencies.6 I am vice-chair of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) committee of the hospital, and we’ve done a pretty good job of educating the pharmacy of why patients need the right supplements. Probiotics, for example, you’ll need lots of them.” “We already tried that.” “No. I’m talking mega-doses. 900 billion live bacteria per day!7 We’re going to hit this hard.” David’s admission labs showed him severely anemic, with a Hemoglobin level of only 5.1. I had to transfuse 4 units of blood, but the combination of mainstream drugs (steroids and antibiotics) and nutritional therapy did bring David’s colitis under control.8 Still, it took close to 3 weeks before he was stable enough to be discharged. He was eating food again (minus the half-dozen foods he was allergic to), and was still on Asacol, but he avoided a colectomy (surgery) or a colostomy bag. Beth, who is now also a patient of mine, came to see me eight months after I first met David. “The good news is that he’s back at work and only rarely takes Prednisone when he feels a flare coming on. The only bad thing is that he has now put on the pounds, especially with the holidays. When you see him next, can you talk to him about that?”

oils and aged balsamic vinegars. For the health conscious the benefits for Extra Virgin Olive Oil are endless. They have anti-oxidants, healthy fats and polyphenols that can lower bad cholesterol and prevent heart disease,” said Richards, who has a soft spot in her heart (and business plan) for woman-owned businesses and entrepreneurs.

wood shelves that house exotic and luscious gourmet goods. Because the shop has a tasting bar for both high-end Extra Virgin Olive Oils and fine quality Balsamic Vinegar they are displayed in large stainless steel Fusti tanks that line both sides of the shop. But it is not just a fashion item. A Fusti is a tank that dispenses olive oil and vinegar so you can sample it before you purchase your favorite flavor. When you pick your favorite it is then individually bottled for you at the time of purchase. That means it is fresh and has not been sitting on a shelf past its prime. The fusti also protects the oils from heat, light and air. If you’re looking for in-depth knowledge or information on quality gourmet Olive Oils look no further than Richards. She is a walking encyclopedia on everything related to olives and vinegar. She is also one of the few people who extols the virtue of first pressed olives. You know why? “All of my olive oils are first pressed. You get the best flavor and the highest quality if the olive is only pressed once,” said Richards, who holds court most days in the store greeting customers and helping them find the best flavor for their culinary dreams and desires. The aged Balsamic Vinegars are infused with natural flavors and can be aged for 25 years. This Traditional balsamic vinegar (aged for 25 years) is notoriously

The Dark Chocolate Balsamic is spectacular on a salad, fresh mozzarella cheese or tomatoes. It is delicacies like this that have transfixed Golf Pro Ronnie Dunayer. She has found The Olive Taste of Delray to be the perfect place to indulge in these ancient flavoring agents. “I love the choices at The Olive Taste. They have things here you can’t get at other places. I love the Balsamic Vinegars. They are perfect for making homemade salad dressing or adding to Quinoa salad or veggies. I also love the personal attention I get here,” said Dunayer. Richards is also bullish about the fact that her store is not a franchise. “I make all the decisions and source all of my olive oils. I am always on the lookout for new sources that have fine quality Extra Virgin Olive Oils. We are locally owned and globally sourced.” Customer service is another one of Richard’s claims to fame. She treats customers as if they were long lost relatives and tends to their every need. “I give my customers my full attention. I want them to have an excellent experience so they leave here feeling good.” Richards also carries a line of unrefined sea salts and herbs that compliment the olive oils and balsamic vinegars. She also has handmade Italian pasta that has been known to be sweeter and tastier than store bought pasta. The Extra Virgin Olive Oils are sourced by region and season so insure freshness and flavor. There are over 16 gourmet Extra Virgin Olive oils (organic included) and over 13 balsamic vinegars in stock right now in flavors that range from the fabulous to the more fabulous. The Olive Taste of Delray also has monthly tastings - pairings with local celebrity chefs - and holiday specials incentives. Come to where chicken is serenaded with fig balsamic vinegar and Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and Filet Mignon can be enriched with 18-year-old dark chocolate Balsamic Vinegar. You’ll be glad you did.

As the song goes…” If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air… You’re sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod.” Cape Cod is the ultimate destination for Delray Beach area residents purchasing second homes… Let Realtor Kate Rimkus become your partner in purchasing or selling your home.

Just like the quaint yet lively City of Delray Beach, Cape Cod towns have many similarities. So it comes as no surprise that Delray Beach area residents are purchasing second homes in the Cape to stay cool during South Florida’s hot summer months. Kate Rimkus- who lives on Cape Cod and who just purchased a home in Delray Beach with her husband- knows the area and is the one to call to help guide you in all your real estate needs. As an experienced Real Estate agent for Robert Paul Properties on Cape Cod (with offices in Boston and the South Coast of Massachusetts), Kate Rimkus becomes your partner throughout the entire real estate process from start to finish. “I love sharing the joy when we succeed in finding just the right home for a buyer, and in sharing the comfort with sellers as they are able to move on to the next stage of their lives,” said Rimkus. “I believe that my clients and I are partners in this whole process, and I do everything to make the experience as stress free as possible. For instance, I get sellers to think about selling a property, not a home since their home implies memories and I remind them that they get to take all their memories with them. This helps sellers alleviate a great deal of stress and turns the process into a business process. I also help sellers prepare their house for the market.” Experience and knowledge also set Kate and her company, Robert Paul Properties 66 May 2014 |

a step above the rest. Kate has successfully represented clients of multi-million dollar homes, waterfront properties, cottages, house and lot packages, condominiums and 1031 (tax deferred) exchanges.

Besides Kate’s many accolades, her love and knowledge of the community of Cape Cod helps homebuyers find the home that’s just right for them. She provides each of her clients with history about the Cape and informs them of all the wonderful attractions and places to visit. “The peninsula of Cape Cod is shaped like an upturned arm that is said to be calling ships in from the sea. There are a lot of synergies between South Florida and Cape Cod. Just like areas of Florida are older and rich with history, the same can be said about Cape Cod. Such as, contrary to public opinion, The Pilgrims first landed on the Cape instead of Plymouth,” said Kate. Kate believes Cape Cod is the perfect destination for South Florida residents looking to get away from the tropical heat wave while still wanting to feel close to home. “In Cape Cod, the summers and falls are gorgeous; we have relatively low humidity here, and beautiful beaches and lakes just like South Florida,” said Kate. Other commonalities with Delray Beach area include Cape Cod’s love for art, fine dining, golf, water sports, baseball, many family activities, museums, and that unique town feel. “Cape Cod has one advantage over South Florida - no alligators,” she said.

One family was so happy with their home and experience with Kate that a son, sister, close friend and boss each purchased homes through her. “She was dependable and reliable… Kate was incredibly knowledgeable about laws and guidelines and was upfront about everything. She did not waiver and was not swayed in the least and was strictly “by the book”. Kate is someone you would definitely want in your corner. Her advice was invaluable,” said her clients Tom & Donna Abbott. “Kate listened.

special feature ║ tailgate party

It’s been billed as South Florida’s largest tailgate party and it happens right here in Delray Beach By lINDA BROWN


But unlike other tailgate parties which are designed to rev you up for the big game, the “All American Delray Tailgate” party is designed to raise money for local kids, specifically children who attend the Delray-based Achievement Centers for Children and Families, a local non-profit with a rich history of taking good care of Delray’s most at risk children.

The 8th annual Tailgate Party is set for May 31 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Delray Center for the Performing Arts at Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave. Fans who attend will enjoy food from popular Delray Beach restaurants, craft micro-brew beer, live entertainment and a Family Fun Zone. Hosted by the Delray Beach Initiative, proceeds from this event help low-income children and families in the community. The event is volunteer-driven with all net proceeds benefiting the Achievement Centers for Children & Families. The Delray Beach Initiative is a brand new group of business and civic leaders who have come together for the express purpose of raising money to benefit local children. So far, the Initiative, founded by Stuart and Shelby Development CEO Chuck Halberg has hosted singersongwriter events and a charity cruise that benefitted Pine Grove Elementary School, a local Title 1 school in which many students are on the free and reduced lunch program. But the big event for the Initiative is the Tailgate which over the past eight years has become a Delray Beach tradition.

SCRATCH CAR Automotive Paint Repair Specialists

By diane feen



For an automotive facility Scratch Car seems to have a lot of heart. They have been in the business of repairing and painting cars for the past 15 years yet they seem to value the personal side of business as much as the commercial.

“Many traditional body shops keep cars for days, but many of our customer’s are seniors and they don’t want to be without their cars so we try to get their car back by evening if they bring it in the morning,” said Scratch Car Manager Fernando Rezende. The reason for this speedy repair work is due to what Cardoso calls their nonassembly line approach. “Our technicians are trained to do everything from start to finish on each car. We don’t have one person to bump out dents and another to replace the bumper. Our technicians can do it all.” Doing it all means fixing Scratches, Scrapes, dents, Molding, Mirror Cov70 May 2014 |

ers, Repair Fenders, Quarter Panels, Related Parts, Bumpers Repair and other auto collision casualties. They are also specialists in BMW, Mercedes Benz Ferrari, Porsches, Lexus and others. Another unique feature of this local body repair and paint shop is their Mobile Service Car. That means you don’t have to leave home to get your automobile repaired (in many instances). Their seven mobile technicians go to your house and do the repairs in your driveway in an hour. The mobile techs carry all the tools and equipment they need with them on the mobile repair truck and all you have to do is supply the keys. “Thanks to the innovation of the process of painting and chemicals available today we can put an end to the old way that was time consuming.” They accept all types of insurance for small repair work and major collision work. And the best part is that they travel from Broward County to North Palm Beach County to fix your car. That means you can have Scratch Car come to your house if you live in Margate or Royal Palm Beach. They also pride themselves on customer service. “We are behind our customers in everything we do. We are honest; if we say we are going to do something we do it. A lot of our business is from word of mouth and we try to be polite and friendly to our customers,” said Scratch Car owner Siderio Cardoso, who worked at his father’s Body Shop in Brazil when growing up. Cardoso is a man of his word. “This place is awesome! I took my car in to them thinking that it was going to cost me a fortune, but the price ended up being extremely reasonable. I brought my car to them on a Wednesday morning and they had it ready for me Thursday morning. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience,” said Amanda Geller. The reason for this customer loyalty is the Scratch Car philosophy. “We love what we do and we do it best. We try to make our customers happy and if they have been coming here for years, we sometimes give them a discount,” said Cardoso, who used to own a car cleaning business in Bos-

ton before moving to South Florida with his family. It seems they keep their promises. “I had my 2013 Lamborghini driver side door and quarter panel repaired and painted by Scratch Car. They did an amazing job! Very people friendly staff, great prices and definitely great quality work! I would recommend them to everyone,” said Barbara Vargas. Another plus at Scratch Car is that their equipment and chemicals used in the shop (and at your home) are approved by the Public Health Department. “That means there is no danger to the environment and it gives you the perfect quality job you want.” Fixing an automobile after an accident or fender bender is often a pricey proposition. But not at Scratch Car. “At the beginning we couldn’t believe how expensive it was to repair scratches, scrapes, moldings, mirror covers, fenders, quarter panels and other auto parts. That’s why we wanted to do repairs for a fair price that allowed everyone to get their vehicles fixed in a shorter amount of time,” said Cardoso. Mike Hurwitz was glad about that. “I brought my Infiniti M35 because it had a hole in the rear fender and a caved in back bumper. These guys fixed it PERFECTLY and at a more than reasonable price than other places. I highly recommend these guys, and will go back anytime I need dent work done. I give them five stars.” As they always say at Scratch Car “Don’t let your car depreciate because of damages and certainly don’t lose money on your vehicle just because of a dent. We can fix your car in a day (most of the time) so why should you pay a higher price for it?” SCRATCH CAR 1 Linton Blvd, #19 (Northwest corner of Linton and Dixie) Delray Beach, Florida 33444 561-278-2866 Cell: 561-756-0901 | May 2014 71

Adult Orthodontics



By Dr. Jacqueline Moroco

It’s a fact. Whether or not you had braces as a child, teeth shift with age. There are multiple negative side effects of teeth shifting which includepoor/ compromised function, uneven and excessive wear of teeth, difficulty with proper hygiene, increased staining or discoloration and increased risk of periodontal disease (gum recession and bone loss).

Frankly, crowded, poorly aligned teeth detract from one’s appearance, give the impression of poor personal hygiene AND are a sure sign of age! Orthodontic treatment is NOT just for children and teens. Adults comprise more than one third of our patients at Moroco Orthodontics. Although there are multiple benefits of adult orthodontic treatment, the desire to achieve a striking smile and attractive, more youthful face motivates most adults to seek orthodontic care. Age is absolutely no barrier to having orthodontic treatment! Should dental and periodontal health be present, patients well into their 80s are routinely and successfully treated with orthodontics. In fact, adults are excellent orthodontic patients given that they have personally elected to pursue their orthodontic treatment. They maintain excellent hygiene and follow up visits with their dentist, follow the orthodontists’ instructions to the “T” and faithfully keep their appointments. Very often, the adult patient will finish sooner than the estimated treatment time…and sooner than their adolescent counterparts. But let’s face, adults don’t want to wear braces! At the very least, they don’t want anyone to know that they are wearing braces. At Moroco Orthodontics, we are the experts in adult orthodontic treatment. We offer multiple, discreet orthodontic treatment options including Invisalign (we are an Elite Invisalign provider), lingual braces (braces behind the teeth) and clear/ceramic braces. Occasionally, we will even combine these options to achieve the optimal treatment re72 May 2014 |

sult in the most discreet and efficient (fastest)manner. We listen to our patients’ needs in order to assess then tailor these needs to their individual treatment. For patients of all ages, orthodontic care is now a much more pleasant experience. Today’s patients enjoy less treatment time than in the past, fewer and easier appointments, and major technical advances such as digital scanning of teeth that replaces traditional clay-based and messy in-the-mouth impressions. As with all patients, retainers are recommended following orthodontics to maintain the treatment result. Retainers are simple removable or fixed devices that keep teeth in their new positions. We often call retainers your “Insurance Policy” because they assist in avoiding the time and cost associated with further orthodontic treatment in the future. Retainers might also be appropriate for an adult who has just started to notice shifting of the teeth but is not yet in need of any orthodontic correction. Moroco Orthodontics is the essence of a high-tech, high-personal-attention professional practice. We employ very low dose, high-quality digital imaging. Our orthodontic appliances benefit from the latest methods in computer-assisted design and manufacture (CAD-CAM). Additionally, Moroco Orthodontics has a highly trained, certified staff with a combined 150 plus years of experience in the orthodontic field. Come see us in our state-of-the-art practice. The more you know about us, and orthodontic treatment, the better you will feel. Dr. Moroco and her team are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may

have. A beautiful, youthful smile provides personal credibility, the “edge” in social and business interactions. Whatever the age, Moroco Orthodontics can make you proud of your smile again! Need a Mother’s Day gift idea? MOM’s… want to treat yourself? Enjoy the gift of a beautiful smile! Take advantage of our Mother’s Day Invisalign specials for the month of May. Schedule a Complimentary Adult Consultation today! Dr. Moroco has been creating beautiful smiles for South Florida families since 1993. She has dedicated herself to personalizing the orthodontic experience for every age using the latest advances in technology to ensure our patients’ corrective plans are as targeted and time-conscious as possible. She believes that it’s not just about the final smile… It’s about grinning through the entire experience. Moroco Orthodontics Call 561-638-9963 OR visit us at www.

PURO’S CIGAR SHOP Home Away From Home For The Cigar Lover By Diane Feen

But fortunately this retail cigar establishment has fans that are willing to share the limelight with other Puro’s admirers. The reasons are obvious to Claudio Hoch. “Puro’s has the best products in town. They also have the greatest family atmosphere. Eduardo (the owner) is the friendliest guy in town and it’s a great place to come.” Everyone who extols the virtues of Puro’s has something to say about the laid back atmosphere of the street level patio where cigar lovers go to smoke a good one and talk about everything under the sun. The best thing about Puro’s, said Mark Niska, is that there are people there from all walks of life, all parts of the country and all ages. “We have all types of conversations about all types of things. We usually solve all the problems of the world free of charge. You never know who you will meet, I joke that people come here from Yale and jail,” said the medical business consultant who lives in Boynton Beach. Like Hoch, Niska is also a frequent visitor at Puro’s Cigar. The Boston native enjoys the camaraderie so much that he stops by for cigars and conversation at least four or five times a week. He nurtures his coffee or Espresso and smokes a Perdomo in the evening while striking up a conversation with owners Eduardo, Jesus or Lisbeth Garcia. “They are the friendliest people and the location is great. They also have a great selection of cigars and the prices are reasonable. You’re not paying for wide screen TV’s and other amenities, it’s just a friendly place to hang out and smoke a cigar outside,” said Niska. Puro’s legend goes like this: Eduardo and Lisbeth Garcia lived in Canada and New York for over 74 May 2014 |

Cigar lovers talk about Puro’s Cigar like a lover. It is friendly, nurturing, kind and helpful. It also has a great comfort level that only lovers understand.

48 years. Eduardo was in the restaurant business and Lisbeth was in real estate in Miami. Although they originally planned to open a restaurant in South Florida, it just never came to fruition. Instead they opened Puro’s Cigar four and a half years ago. And it’s been a love affair ever since. “In the restaurant business Eduardo enjoyed making people happy,” said Lisbeth. If you ask financial advisor David Ravodowitz you will find out that Eduardo has accomplished his goal with ease. “I go to Puro’s five times a week. The owners are hospitable and you get special attention you won’t get anywhere else. You can actually feel that they care about their customers. This is my favorite cigar store.” Like the other fans of Puro’s Cigar Ravodowitz is smitten with the diverse crowd and the camaELIZABETH & EDUARDO, OWNERS

raderie. “The common denominator here is that rich, poor, young and old come to Puro’s and it’s an open forum to talk and socialize. Some of the other places are cliquey but not here. The cigars are priced well and they have a diverse selection of great cigars.” What customers may not know is that Puro’s was chosen as one of the few South Florida cigar stores to sell the exclusive Casa Cuba cigar by Arturo Fuente. It’s the first new cigar from Carlos Fuente Sr. in decades. Fuente Sr. blended Casa Cuba himself, using an Ecuador Havana wrapper and a mix of Cuban-seed Dominican filler and binder. “I blended this cigar the way I used to blend Cuban tobacco,” he told Cigar Insider. Casa Cuba cigars come in four sizes and are named after Cu-

ban dominoes. There is Doble Tres, Doble Cuatro, Doble Cinco and Doble Seis and all are made in the Dominican Republic. Puro’s also has something else to brag about – the introduction of The AVO Limited Edition 2014 Cigar that celebrates the 88th birthday of cigar legend, Avo Uvezian. The AVO 88 cigars are homemade and will have 8,888 individually numbered black piano lacquered boxes and 888 boxes will be personally autographed by Uvezian. “The goal was to compose a cigar that encapsulated an exciting and perfect balance of flavors and strength like the foundation of every great musical composition.” Other great news is that Puro’s has found some boxes of a very popular limited edition cigar called The Montecristo Epic No. 2. This cigar has been sold out at most places and is difficult to obtain. “We still have boxes of the Montecristo Epic No. 2 cigars. It was a very exclusive limited brand and most stores are out of it, but everyone just loves it. It has a rich blend of caramel, espresso, cocoa, wood and earth with light undertones of pepper,” said Lisbeth. If you happen to stop by Puro’s Cigar on Sunday you will meet the other star of the Garcia family – Jesus. The son of Lisbeth and Eduardo is a


popular figure among Puro’s customers, and is someone everyone likes to talk to. Puro’s also has a private label brand of cigars that is reasonably priced and has a great flavor. Cigar lovers can also get imported cigar brands such as Padron, Ashton, The Griffin’s, Montecristo, Arturo Fuente, Romeo y Julieta, Rocky Patel, My Father Cigars and others. Puro’s also sells pipe tobacco in different flavors and blends, as well as lighters, humidors and cigar accessories. They also take special orders from customers who live in other countries and cities.

“A lot of our customers like coming here because it’s homey and friendly. It’s not just the cigars, but the friendliness. When people come in as customers they usually leave as part of our family. We give from our hearts,” said Lisbeth.

The Hair Story From Curl to Straight and Back By Harold Leighton©2014


The hair industry lost its largest earnings when perms /permanents came off the salon menu as an old fashion method for the younger generation.

It worked for many decades as a curl and body builder and then became the more modern way to add volume. However, it also broke the hair if the hair was wound incorrectly on the plastic curlers that were held to the head with a strip of elastic. If the elastic was pulled too tight it would mark the hair so badly that it left a ridge and hair would snap off at the bend. So, in the earlier years ‘hair breakage was definitely around in salons. In the mid sixties many methods and lotions were tried for long hair including ‘stack winding’ that took hours for long hair to be curled,costing far too much money. The natural Afro was also introduced. With the musical ‘hair’ it became a fashion cult for many seasons. The perm was wonderful while it lasted and worked for many years for many people from the 1930’s right through to 2000. I remember on a “Perm Sale” in

Harrods and at many stores in Europe, for the company S&L having 30 or 40 perms a day was normal. With 100 or more salons in Germany alone that was a lot of curl walking out of salons. Hair color came along in a big way. Highlights /Frosting /Hi and Low Lights came into the hair color spectrum and took over. Sassoon was an early leader with Annie Humphries, the best colorist between the UK & USA. Colors from blue to green and red to yellow.‘Crazy Color’ was born by Renato Brunas and with punk being trendy around the world-anything went!! In 2014 ‘hair color ’ is the biggest market in salon service and at home, worth billions of $’s.

Some years later, around 2005, we were introduced to a product from Brazil, first known as ‘Brazilian Blowout’ and tagged the word Keratin. (Now used by many companies).It smoothed out the last of the frizz and natural curl,helped with the use of hot irons and created the straight look. That was until the word ‘formaldehyde’ came into play. Keratin has formaldehyde as an ingredient and its associa-

tion with cancer led the international press to have a field day. The main health concern about formaldehyde was about the exposure to salon workers, not the people who got keratin hair treatments. Consequently sales dropped and also the use of the product. Information on Keratin and Alpha Keratin is a structural protein; it is the key structural component in human hair and nails. Alpha Keratin is in curly hair and Beta Keratin is to straight hair. In my day we were not taught this at all hair was hair and grew on the head and body parts! Most companies that sell keratin treatments today use safe levels of formaldehyde. Unfortunately it was when salons were mixing their own keratin to include more formaldehyde that the product got such bad press. As we know ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’ The beauty industry is now experiencing a new innovation in curling hair that has brought the magic back of how to curl hair in salon or at home. The new invention that has been on the world market for around a year is Curl Secret by Conair and MiraCurl by BaByliss Pro. Professional hair salons are selling this exciting tool also seen in spas, beauty shops and stores. This is bringing curly hair back onto the fashion scene worldwide, making this the new and easy trend for feminine curl and sexy waves. I predict that Curl and the Afro will be back in many ways and will be noticed in the fashion magazines, hair shows and on the streets. Watch this space! | May 2014 77

On The Ave in Pineapple Grove will Light Up the Night on May 15 By Gary Schweikhart

Marking the return of On The Ave for 2014, the celebration will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will feature several light displays on Northeast Second Avenue in artistic and creative ways. “Light can change everything,” says Jarrod White, special events manager for the Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative (DBMC). “It’s very appealing and it can create a whole new atmosphere.” When the sun goes down that Thursday, the lights will come up in Pineapple Grove in ways that most visitors will have never seen before. Using mainly energy-efficient LED lighting, the DBMC has teamed up with EMS Technologies to place ground lights of various colors along Pineapple Grove Way, creating an inviting atmosphere and a new look to the area’s buildings and landscaping. The night will also feature 300 balloons with LED lights inside displayed creatively along with several 3D color-changing light walls.

Lynn University String Quartet 78 May 2014 |

“One of our goals is to showcase light as art,” White said. “Many people appreciate a great painting or an outstanding performance but we want to introduce audiences to a different kind of art they can have fun with.” Light will come together with entertainment in the 100 block of Pineapple Grove Way as a larger 3D Light Wall, donated along with the others by 3D Designer Walls Company, will provide the backdrop for the music of Drew Tucker & Brass Monkey, featuring Bill Muter. Also appearing will be Brendan O’Hara, who will be performing in a style defined as “roots rock” on baby grand piano as well on guitar, and the Lynn University String Quartet, giving a new sound to some familiar tunes. For those who enjoy photography, Lynn University photographic art students will display their work in an open-air exhibit. In keeping with efforts to include several interactive elements in On The Ave, the DBMC will offer several activities for children, coordinated by Avenue Church, including face painting and sidewalk chalk art. Both kids and adults will have the chance to show off their artistic talent with Canvas Art – painting on several canvases donated by Hands Office Supply – or engage in a game of chess with life-size pieces. New to On The Ave is a mini scavenger hunt put on by the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Non-profit Council, which will host the citywide Seek in the City Scavenger Hunt on June 21. For those who want to relax and unwind, the Hyatt Place Delray Beach will be offering a “Chill Lounge” in the roundabout entrance, where visitors can enjoy a cold beer in an inviting environment. Of course, visitors will also have a chance to visit

Posh Properties builds a lifetime of relationships with customers and the Delray Beach community By Nicol Jenkins


photos by melissa korman

Jerilyn Walter’s real estate career unknowingly began as a young girl. She would keep her grandmother company, who at the time was a successful female real estate agent, in a mostly male dominated industry, at weekend open houses, and that is when she got her first taste of real estate.

“I would walk around these empty houses and be fascinated. Most evenings my grandmother, with me in tow, would go to customer’s homes or write contracts on the hood of her car. I learned a lot about customer service from her.” That experience and education continued throughout Jerilyn’s high school years, as she would earn money every summer by painting and cleaning houses her grandmother listed for sale. Many years later and a move to South Florida was when opportunity knocked, and Jerilyn finally had the chance to follow her true passion in life, real estate. “This was the first profession that I felt immediately at ease. I understood the business

of real estate, and I know my grandmother’s influence helped me develop my knowledge and work ethic,” said Jerilyn. “I was fortunate to have worked in many fields, including waitressing, owning a medical billing and collection company, I was a court appointed Trustee for the state of California and a court appointed Receiver for the state of Arizona.” Jerilyn also worked as model in Los Angeles, posed for Playboy, and published a successful single’s magazine, appearing on numerous television shows to promote that magazine. Now, as the owner and broker of Posh Properties, LLC, located in the heart of Pineapple Grove in Delray Beach, Jerilyn owns a practice where she believes in creating relationships

with her customers who come back year after year, referring their friends and family. For 15 years, Jerilyn has guided her customers through the real estate process helping them make one of the most important decisions of their life, buying a home or investment property. She doesn’t take that job lightly, which is one of the reasons why she is so successful at what she does. Her drive and hard work has paid off, in less than 3 years, Posh Properties has made a lasting impact and reached their goal of over $25 million in sales, the first quarter of this year. But even more importantly, Jerilyn has developed and maintained long-lasting relationships with her customers and staff. When you first meet the agents at Posh Properties, which comes as no surprise, you instantly feel welcomed and at ease about the sometimes stressful home buying process. “We have a great ‘vibe’ here at Posh Properties,” says Jerilyn. All of the agents at Posh Properties, believe in treating their customers as friends, as though they have known them for years. Not trying to sell them or make a commission, they instead listen to what the customers are looking for, they take the customers on a tour of beautiful Delray Beach and find the neighborhoods first, and then the home or condo that is the right fit for them. Even after the sale, the agents at Posh, keep in touch with their customers, and treat them to an annual customer appreciation night, complete with live music and a catered dinner, and also take pride in keeping an eye on their customer’s properties while they are out of town. “It’s important to spend time with them, listen, and get to know them. When we show

jerilyn walter, owner

them properties, we gear the search towards what they need and try to find what fits for them,” said Jerilyn, “They are not buying a home here; they are buying a lifestyle.” Posh Properties fits perfectly into the charming Delray Beach lifestyle, as a full service boutique real estate firm specializing in residential sales and rentals as well as commercial and investment properties, they service all of Palm Beach County, in addition to selling properties from Jupiter through Miami Beach. Posh Prop-

erties has eight dedicated real estate agents who work together, and motivate and help each other, instead of competing with one another. Jerilyn has conscientiously strived to make Posh Properties a great place to work. The monthly office dinners at local eateries, is a must for the staff to get together and enjoy being a part of the Delray Beach lifestyle. Newest, Realtor, Devin Stoner says it’s an empowering work environment, stating, “We all work cohesively to assist one another in servicing our customers and listings. We truly put the customer first.” “We are not here just to get the deal. We believe this is a practice, that needs to be built with an agent you can trust, and an agent that genuinely watches out for the customer’s well-being,” said Posh agent Catherine McGlennon, adding, “We are happy to come to work, and our customers continue to stop by our offices, sometimes just to have a cup of coffee and relax.” Jerilyn and the staff are also known for their commitment to the local community. Posh Properties is a proud supporter of many local charities and supports area businesses, including our local Red Cross, Chris Evert Charities, Delray Little League, The Delray

Beach Library, The Tico Torres (of Bon Jovi) annual charity Golf Tournament, and the Jerome Golden Center. Jerilyn truly is a “fearless leader”- just like her name badge states. Her drive to be the best she can be over the years in all her professions, has set her company a step above the rest. Suffering and surviving from a spinal disease in 2006, also set her on a path to never give up. “I was in a wheelchair from a spinal disease for six months and I was prepared to die; I was hooked up to an IV daily. I didn’t have some great epiphany, but I kept my eye on the ball and stayed focused, and that made me appreciate what I am made of. During that time, I realized that I can do just about anything, and not to let fear get in the way,” said Jerilyn. “We all feel like we’re in this together, we respect each other, our customers and appreciate the opportunity to assist our customers reach their real estate goals,” said Posh agent, Lenny Felberbaum- and that is what makes all the difference.

JORDANA L. JARJURA Delray’s Newest Politcal Advantage By Diane Feen


Photo by david decoteau/Downtown Photo

Jordana Jarjura’s life has always been on accelerated speed dial. At the age of six she already knew she wanted to become a lawyer and instead of playing with dolls (like the other girls) she staged mock courtroom scenarios in her playroom.

But that was a late in life decision for this newly elected Delray Beach City Commissioner/Deputy Vice-Mayor. “I came out of the womb decisive and pragmatic,” said the statuesque beauty, who gains height through her shoes and power by way of her brain. Jarjura talks about life planning and short and long term goals with as much determination as an Olympic athlete. Her short term goal was to become a lawyer and her long term goal was to combine all her passions into one big bundle. But life, like cooking, isn’t always on a perfect time schedule. “I had a plan that later in life I would take three or four big cases, be an adjunct professor and a city commissioner. But I’m a little accelerated,” admits the humble public servant, lawyer and partner at Conrad & Scherer of Ft. Lauderdale. Although her life plan is ahead of schedule her accomplishments are as solid and steady as a bullet train. Jarjura attended Atlantic High School in their International Baccalaureate Program; she was a straight-A student and President of her class from sophomore to senior year. Her SAT scores were so high she blushes at the mention of them (almost perfect) and she was in the National (and French) Honor Society. Jarjura was also on an accelerated schedule at University of Florida - she started with 36 credits before classes even began. There are a lot of reasons to think that this charming intelligent woman is a figment of one’s imagination. She not only got her law degree at Pepperdine University School of Law but she also received a scholarship and an MBA at Pepperdine’s Graziadio School of Business and Management. But this left brain genius also has a right brain advantage. “I am very analytical but I love interior design and architecture. If I wasn’t a government relations lawyer I would want to be an architect,” said Jarjura, who plays piano and was classically trained in ballet. The world of architecture’s loss was a huge gain for the legal profession (and the city of Delray Beach). As a Partner in the Government Relations practice at Conrad & Scherer

May 2014 |

she does procurement, negotiation, government contracts, land use and government relations/public policy. The litigation aspect of her career involves commercial litigation with a focus on complex corporate, procurement, land use and real estate disputes. Prior to Conrad & Scherer, Jarjura was an attorney with Ruden McClosky and Blosser & Sayfie doing comprehensive planning, zoning, community redevelopment, historic preservation and government procurement. If you add up all these heady legal and governmental entities you realize that Jarjura is the perfect fit for her new title as City Commissioner/Deputy Vice-Mayor. “Jordana has an inspiring resume, but what has impressed me most is her ability to understand where we have been and where we need to go. Her intellect and nonpolitical, pragmatic thinking is most welcome. Her extensive private-sector experience relating to many of the issues we face will make her a successful commissioner. Our City is lucky to have her,” said Delray Beach Mayor Cary Glickstein. You bet they are. Just recently Jarjura attended a City Commission meeting and shook things up a bit. In her first appearance she quizzed the powers that be in Delray’s local government and established that some of the administrative rules were broken, and matters on the agenda were contrary to law. As one local publication put it, “Although Ms. Jarjura was the shortest person in the room she had the biggest men cowering.” That, in essence, was part and parcel of Jarjura’s master plan in running for a commission seat. She originally started out on Delray’s Planning and Zoning Board but something changed the trajectory of her end game. “When I was on the Planning and Zoning board I saw things being done that were not in the best interest of Delray. It was not something I planned on doing at this time, but I strongly disagreed with many of their decisions and it motivated me to accelerate my life plan.” One prominent feature of Jarjura’s life plan was to end up in Delray, even though she has lived (and spent time) in some of the most glorious locales. She lived in Boca Raton

as a child and later moved with her family to Delray Beach. After attending Pepperdine University in Malibu, California and working for a summer at a London law firm, she was ready to head home. “I always considered Delray to be my home. Our Village by the Sea has a unique character and my public service will focus on preserving and improving our way of life.” And it seems she has the goods to keep that promise. Jarjura was rated AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubbell®, she was called a “Florida Rising Star” by Florida Super Lawyers, a “Top 40 Professional Under 40,” and a Leader in Law finalist for Environmental Law. Jarjura was also an adjunct Professor in Business Law at Lynn University School of Business and Management, and is on enough city and cultural boards to make one wonder, “how did this woman make partner in a Ft. Lauderdale law firm? “I don’t need much sleep. I get up every morning to run at 5:40 am. Sometimes I am in commission meetings in Ft. Lauderdale until late at night but I am very disciplined,” said Jarjura, who works 60 to 80 hours a week but enjoys weekend beach respites at the Delray Beach Club. Jarjura is definitely a combination of her eclectic background. Her father’s side of the family were entrepreneurs (of Lebanese heritage) and her mother’s side (from the Philippines) were all doctors. But they had one thing in common: “Both sides of my family valued education and hard work. My parents instilled the importance of each to me from the start.” It’s obvious that the apple does not fall far from the tree. Jarjura has done a lot in her 35 years on this planet, and if her plan is still hurling at the speed of light, she has much more to do. Former Vice Mayor Jon Levinson agrees. “I’ve known Jordana since she was my daughter’s best friend at Atlantic High School so I’m not surprised by what an accomplished young woman she is. I can’t wait to see what she does next!” | May 2014

SHULA BURGER Fast Casual Food And More By Diane Feen


Dining out can be a long wonderful experience – if you want it to be. But if you have hungry kids or are on a fast paced schedule speed is as important as your culinary desires.

That is the reason Don Shula recently rolled out his latest incarnation of dining. Known for his NFL Hall of Fame and coaching stardom (he was the coach for the Miami Dolphins in 1972 and 1973 when they won the Super Bowl) Don has decided that sometimes in life speed is of the essence. He also knew that hamburgers were as popular as football (perhaps more so for some) and wanted to delight patrons with a simple menu that features traditional American fare. Why else would he have started a restaurant chain called Shula Burger that offers 10 different burg96

May 2014 |

ers with sidekicks like milkshakes and French fries? The answer lies in the motive and the method. “We call Shula Burger Fast Casual Plus. You go to the cashier and place an order and we bring the food to you. Unlike fast food restaurants we use flatware (no plastic) and China plates. We also have a happy server who will bring you a second glass of beer or wine,” said Carrie LaNoce, step-daughter of Don Shula and owner of the Delray Marketplace Shula Burger. Shula Burger’s menu not only offers 10 different hamburgers but they also serve Turkey Burgers and Veggie burgers (for

those who aren’t in the mood for meat). When asked about the origin of their meat LaNoce is adamant that they get it from a family-owned meat distributor in Atlanta called Halperns’. “Our hamburgers are made of premium chuck, short ribs and brisket. The meat comes into the restaurant six days a week from Halperins’ so it’s fresh every time we serve it,” adds LaNoce. If variety is the spice of life for you then Shula Burger is your place. They have burgers ranging from a Wine Country Burger (our favorite) with roasted peppers, fresh goat cheese, balsamic greens and roasted tomatoes, to a French Onion

Burger with Caramelized onions, gruyere cheese, garlic mayo and crushed garlic croutons. If you have an insatiable appetite for the American classics Shula Burger knew you were coming. Their “The Don” special is made with a hamburger, hot dog, pickle, onion sauce, American cheese, ketchup and yellow mustard on a brioche bun. Try to beat that McDonalds. They also serve steak sandwiches, grilled chicken sandwiches and enough toppings to keep you from reaching burger boredom. The basic Shula burger comes with American cheese, shaved lettuce, tomato and pickle, but your burger toppings don’t stop there. You can choose from different spreads (BBQ Sauce, chipotle, Herb-Garlic Mayo, Mayonnaise and Spicy Brown Mustard) and a variety of toppings. Deluxe burger toppings start with baby greens and include NY Onion Sauce, Roasted Corn and Black Bean Salsa, Caramelized Onions, Balsamic Greens and Mushrooms. For those in search of a more international burger, try their Premium Toppings such as Roasted Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, Gruyere Cheese, Blue Cheese, Roasted Red Peppers, Red Onion Jam, Double Cut Peppered Bacon or Avocados. Another favorite at Shula Burger is their choice of salads that can be topped with grilled chicken, a turkey burger or a hamburger. This allows the diet conscious (or green Goddess) to have some extra protein while enjoying the crunch of fresh lettuce. That’s what keeps Marsha Rosinger and her mother Gerry coming back to Shula Burger. “I just moved to Delray four weeks ago and I have eaten here three

Baby Greens Salad

times,” said Marsha. “The Santa Fe burger is scrumptious and I love my salad topped with a turkey burger. I will definitely come back again.” That’s the way a lot of people feel about Shula Burger. They love the side dishes; especially the Sweet Potato Tots, the luscious onion rings and the fried pickles or fried banana peppers. There are also side salads and a Mahi-Mahi burger caught fresh by a local fisherman. Another big draw at Shula Burger is that it’s definitely kid-friendly. For just $4.99 children get a cheeseburger, chicken tenders (either fried or grilled) with a choice of fruit or carrot sticks and celery and a Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

kid’s drink. That’s what attracted Andrea R. “I went to Shula Burger with my two children and my husband. The food came out within minutes, which was appreciated before the naptime freak-out. My salad was tasty and both kids ate well. I helped myself to bites off the kids meals because where else do you get to eat delicious chicken tenders, fries and grilled cheese?” Although Shula Burger has its reputation staked on its food, they have a great selection of local craft beers, white and red wine and the best milkshakes this side of the Atlantic (avenue that is). Craft beer favorites are Due South IPA, Funky Buddha, Angry Orchard and Sam Adams. The milkshakes (liquor free of course) are made with hand-dipped Haagen Dazs® ice cream. One of our favorite shakes – beside vanilla – was the Nutella shake. There’s something for everyone at Shula Burger. The Big Chocolate Chip Cookie is legendary and can be served as a sundae, and you can make your own burger with the toppings of your choice. “We offer a unique menu with a friendly welcoming staff and sparkling clean environment,” adds LaNoce. “We invite everyone to come try our fantastic fast casual dining experience.” Shula Burger 14917 Lyons Rd.

The Pineapple People: Pineapple Grove has come into its own as a destination within Delray Beach. But it didn’t happen overnight.

How safe are the GMO Products in my Pet Food?


fter reviewing research recently, I found a timeline regarding the introduction of Genetically Modified Foods (GM Foods) and was astonished. As most of you know, I’m already suspicious of what large corporations get away with and the government’s approval process. So to help guide you through a bit of history, I’ve compiled the facts for you to draw your own conclusions. “GMO” is a Genetically Modified Organism that is a key component in genetically modified foods, “GM Foods” are foods that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using methods of genetic engineering which use DNA from unrelated organisms. These mutations are found nowhere in nature. I feel it is important that we observe the following dates closely. The first approved use of a GMO product was in 1982 with a GMO insulin product from bacteria. In 1986, field testing of GMO tobacco began. In 1992, the tomato was approved as the very first genetically modified food. It hit the market in 1994. Before I go on, you must note the time frame from the first approval of anything to “table ready” being only ten years and in plants, only six years. How much generational effect testing could you possibly do in that

short a time to prove any safety? Today, even without enough time for this generational or health testing, “the FDA still declares that genetically engineered foods are “not inherently dangerous” and do not require special regulation.” Do you feel safe yet? By 1999, over 100 million acres of crops worldwide were planted with genetically engineered seeds. The marketplace began embracing GMO technology at an alarming rate. These untested foods are now rampant in our food supply along with a great deal also being used in pet foods. In 2000, the International Biosafety Protocol was approved by 130 countries at the Convention on Biological Diversity in Montréal, Canada. The protocol agrees upon labeling of genetically engineered crops. This being stated, the United States as a country and most of its states still have no requirements 14 years later to properly label GM foods for humans, much less our precious pets. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) reported that “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major or-

gans and the gastrointestinal system. Their food studies found thousands of sheep, buffalo, and goats in India died after grazing on “Bt cotton” plants (gene coding for Bt toxin has been inserted into cotton, to produce a natural insecticide in its tissues.). Mice eating GM corn for the long term had fewer and smaller, babies. More than half these babies died within three weeks, were smaller in size and by third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to reproduce. Ask yourself; are any of these facts an acceptable risk to subject your pet or yourself to? It has only been twenty years. Do we even have a clue of the effects that these un-natural products, many of which are labeled “all-natural” have produced or how they have been formulated and by whom? Do you know if GMO’s are in the food you are buying? Keep in mind that corporations by law are formed to grow and generate income. They have never been mandated to promote optimal health.

misc ║ s-i-n-g-l-e By Nicole Flier

A Single Girl’s Guide to South Florida and Beyond... “That Was Then, This Is Now” Last month my business travels sent me to California for a conference. Having a stop in Los Angeles allowed me the opportunity for a quick visit to my old stomping grounds, The Valley, where I spent the first 31 years of my life. As I drove by my childhood home and my high school, I couldn’t help but think about how times have changed so drastically and how dissimilar I am in my 40s as opposed to the awkward teen I was in the 80s. Anyone who was coming of age back then can easily relate. Put on your leg warmers or your Z. Cavariccis, throw in a Duran Duran mix tape and brace yourself… Then: Nailing the perfect side ponytail. Now: Nailing the perfect sideways pose hoping to look 10lbs thinner in photos. Then: Trips to the library and bookstore for Judy Blume books. We all remember “Forever” and “Wifey”- 80s literary porn. Now: 50 Shades of Gray on my IPAD- true literary porn. Then: Teen Beat, Super Teen, Tiger Beat, Bop for the tri fold wall posters. Now: Cosmopolitan, Vogue and In Style for fashion, self-help and sex therapy. Then: Pager- as if I was a doctor on call. Really?? Or how about the cell phone I carried on my shoulder weighing 15lbs, making me look like someone in the MASH field unit. Now: iPhone and iPad…now where did I leave them again?? (memory loss clearly setting in) Then: Style Icon, Denise Huxtable- Funky, hip and oh so cool. Now: Victoria Beckham- Chic beyond, mysterious and married to a total hottie! Then: Coming home from school to watch Luke and Laura’s wedding. Now: Still DVR’ing General Hospital every day. My guilty pleasure-don’t judge! Then: Roller skating -“Couples Only” Skate or “Ladies Choice.” Now: Being single on a Saturday night when it’s totally “Couples Only” and clearly not my choice! Then: Decked out in fluorescent attire 114 May 2014 |

dancing in my bedroom to Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” or Frankie Goes to Hollywood “Relax”- Yeah, you know all the words too! Now: Hearing Pharell sing “Happy” on the radio 12 times a day, but never having enough time to just RELAX! Then: Big, Bigger, Biggest Hair and that goes for the boys too. Remember the Stray Cats pomade pompadour? Now: Keratin treatment and washing the grays right out of my hair every 4 weeks! Then: Lip Smackers, Bonne Bell and Maybelline Kissing Potions. I wore the potion when I had my first kiss in the 4th grade. Thanks for the strawberry memories, Jason! Now: Buxom Lip Polish- A little tingle and always pucker-up ready! Any takers? Then: A letter from a pen-pal. Nothing like running to the mailbox afterschool to see an envelope covered in smelly stickers. Now: Too many Spam emails and late night texts. Can’t we go back to the Pony Express and the art of letter writing? Then: The joy of peeling off Tinkerbell nail polish that lasted an entire week. Now: The joy (NOT) of spending $30 for a Shellac manicure that hopefully last two weeks if I don’t do any housework or laundry. Then: Swatch Watch with Swatch guard to match the outfit. Now: Cartier or Rolex- silver and gold goes with everything! Then: Easy Bake Oven-my cake never seemed

to look like the one they showed on the box. Now: Magnolia Bakery on a jaunt to NYC or the Sprinkles ATM. Who knew gourmet cupcakes would take over the world? Then: Dolphin running shorts, knee high socks and my Addidas. Thanks to Richard Simmons for rocking those super short and sexy, 4 panel, two color, 100% nylon babies! Now: Lululemon yoga pants and hoping I am not revealing more than I should in the gym! Sheer Madness! Then: 1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988 World Champion Lakers. Learned and lived the true meaning of “Showtime” and “This game’s in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard, and the Jello’s jigglin’! (Thanks Chick Hearn) Now: 2012, 2013 World Champion Miami Heat. Can they make it a 3-peat? Regardless, I will always represent purple, gold and white! Well the fads and the technology may be more advanced but in theory, I am still that big haired, blue eye-shadowed, jelly bracelet wearing teenager looking for love in all the wrong places. No matter what age you are, don’t ever forget your roots or where you came from. It’s what keeps us grounded and feeling young at heart despite those fine lines, extra pounds and gray hairs. Now when I hear Wham’s “Careless Whisper” or Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf” it’s on Sirius Radio, not my Sony Walkman and I am wearing designer “red bottom” shoes rather than the Jellies! Ladies Choice, anyone? “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” cause it’s totally, tubular, to the max! Nicole, a card carrying “California Girl” was born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles but now is officially a “Boca Girl”. A graduate of the University of Southern California, Nicole owns a private consulting firm, “Flier Consulting”, which specializes in business development, marketing, public relations and special events.

When I was a young reporter, I did a series of articles about Atlantic Avenue


It was called “Portraits of Atlantic Avenue” and the series had a theory: if you travelled the length of Atlantic Ave from the ocean to 441 you could experience most of what Florida had to offer—from a beach and a traditional downtown to historic minority neighborhoods and suburban sprawl, condos to Alligators west of 441-- it was all on one street.

But today one big part of Atlantic is fast disappearing—the fields of peppers and tomatoes that once made Palm Beach County the winter vegetable capital of the world. I spent many days reporting in those fields and evenings at the migrant camps that were hidden north and south of Atlantic Ave. It was the 1980s and migrant farmworkers were everywhere. These days, development has put enormous pressure on what is known as the Agricultural Reserve. Despite a $100 million investment by taxpayers to preserve farmland made about 15 years ago, the Ag Reserve is facing pressure from a group of landowners who are pushing big changes. They want more flexibility in building rules, changes that could potentially open up more of the reserve to development. Lining up on the opposite side are neighborhood associations and environmentalists who want to stop sprawl and keep farming viable. The County Commission has authorized a series of roundtable meetings to discuss the rules. Out of those discussions, county staff could develop options for the commission to consider. According to county records, 5,412 homes have been built in the reserve, with another 4,913 approved but not yet built. The changes being pushed could

add even more homes and possibly 200 additional acres opened for commercial development. The movement to open up the reserve for more development comes at a time when the “farm to table” food movement is sweeping the nation. From coast to coast, consumers are coveting locally sourced fruit, vegetables and meats. The movement has spurred new restaurants, commercial kitchens, markets, food companies, craft manufacturers and even new magazines and tourism opportunities. It would seem to be a good strategy to encourage agriculture and sustainable living rather than pave paradise to put up yet another 55 and over community of cookie cutter homes. With our climate, perhaps we should aspire to become an east coast Napa, but for vegetables and urban farming rather than wine. Years ago, there was a planning movement called “Eastward Ho” that encouraged development in the eastern parts of Palm Beach County, where infrastructure, schools and downtowns exist. Losing our farm land may work for short term profits, but long term it seems we should build on our agricultural heritage. Just a thought…
