Hurricane Preparedness And Document Retention

MEN’S CUT & STYLE

in an earlier column, i addressed how long each of us should keep our personal records. Assembling your personal records in a location and format protected from hurricane and disasters is also paramount.

$

FIRST TIMERS ONLY

Hurricane preparedness can be quickly summarized in the following steps: 1. Determine your risk. 2. Develop your personalized evacuation plan. 3. make sure your insurance coverage is up to date. 4. Assemble all disaster supplies. 5. Reinforce your home and business. 6. identify and protect your trusted sources of information. 7. create a written plan for you and your family. the essential records to be safeguarded in the event of an actual disaster are by their nature limited in volume and must be the key items you need in the event you are adversely affected. while tax papers are important, they are generally not the first items to be safeguarded. certain documents should be retained in a safe deposit box yet be available if they are immediately required. the following are just suggestions, and may not be inclusive, of everything you might personally need to retain:

Full Head Tape Extensions •Full Head Tape Extensions •Cut and Color •Moroccanoil Mask

Special Price $450 Regular price $735

Items to be retained in a safe deposit box:

(Hair over 12” extra cost)

Great Lengths Extensions •Cut and Color •Moroccanoil Mask

Special Price $695 Regular price $900

(Hair over 12” extra cost)

and business contacts, medical related papers and prescriptions, automobile registrations, copy of credit cards, bank documents, brokerage accounts, one year’s tax returns, medical information and insurance cards, school information for children, government benefits including social security card and benefit statements. the key concept is that documents retained in a home office are not safe in the event of disaster. they are often not readily available when needed. Documents absolutely essential in the event of an actual disaster should be placed in a safe deposit box. those documents you might need to work your way through a natural disaster, or to help your family, should be retained in a portable protected firebox. You should also have an adequate amount of cash for your expected needs for at least two (2) weeks, multiple credit cards, and checks from bank accounts funded to see you through an extended natural disaster. Plan ahead by thinking what documents you will need if you were displaced from your residence for an extended period of time. it is always easier to make copies of important documents, rather than having to reconstruct them by remembering who might have copies or trying to remember who your professional service advisors were when certain documents were prepared. consult your legal and tax advisor to determine which documents can be retained by copy and which must be original. electronic backups are always an excellent strategy. this article provides generalized tax and financial information for educational purposes only. it does not provide any personalized tax, investment, legal, or other business or professional advice. before taking any action with respect to the matters addressed, you should seek assistance of a professional who is familiar with your particular situation. the author and publisher accept no responsibility for any actions taken, or not taken, by any reader of this article.

today, ours is a truly year-round community. Don’t believe me? Just look at the grow th in our student population. Public, private and college students demonstrate the year-round nature of our residents. we are seeing the benef its of this changing demographic. our economy is no longer driven exclusively by the hospitality industr y. that is not to say that tourism is not an impor tant economic driver. but, as For tune 50 0 companies recognize the benef its of setting up shop in south Florida (with the low taxes, an educated work force, safe, af fordable communities and year round recreational oppor tunities) we are seeing our economy benef iting from more diverse career oppor tunities. we are no longer a sleepy little vacation spot. we have a year-round population of over 9 0,0 0 0 with just under $20 billion of assessed value in our residential and commercial structures making us the highest of any city in Palm beach county. as a result of our par tnership with the business Development board of Palm beach county, the greater boca raton chamber of commerce, the economic Development board of Palm beach count y and many more (including our own economic Development manager, Jessica del Vecchio) we are continuing to increase our region’s economic competitiveness translating into a high quality of life for our residents. boca raton in the early 80’s was quite dif ferent than today. it has evolved into a vibrant world- class city recognized by bloomberg business as one of the top ten places in the united states to star t a new company. our downtown has been transformed.

Elijah Word, Broward actor/singer/dancer By Dale King

A local singer, dancer and actor is angling to make the jump from broward to broadway. that performer, elijah word, isn’t complaining, though. He spent most of 2016 parlaying his talents across a variety of south Florida stages, picking up some respectable reviews and plenty of positive audience recognition. He hopes to replicate his success in New York, where he has studied performing arts and already plied his trade in several off-Broadway venues. But first, he has to finish his work locally – and he’s booked at least through April. word, a 23-year-old Fort Lauderdale native, grew up in Parkland, graduated from marjory stoneman Douglas High school there and attended the American music and Dramatic Arts Academy (AmDA) in the big Apple. He lives in coral springs when he’s around town, and stays with family in New York when working in the big city. “i’ve always been a singer, since i was about 3,” said word, the lanky, 6-foot-3 performer who often towers over his cast mates on stage. As a high school sophomore, “my drama teacher saw me singing and said, ‘You have to audition for the drama class.’ i ended up doing Pippin, and i fell in love with theater right there.” Pippin is a musical that uses the premise of a mysterious performance troupe led by a Leading Player to tell the story of Pippin, a young prince. ben Vereen won a tony for his lead role in the original broadway production – and word said he once had a funky run-in with the famed performer. “i saw ben Vereen in New York, walking in to see cat on a Hot tin Roof. He was wearing a top hat and a cool, velvet blazer. i made eye contact with him, and i blurted out, ‘You’re the reason i do theater, you’re amazing, oh, my god!” Word first showed his face – and his abilities – on the south Florida theater scene a few years ago in sounds of simon, a collection of Paul simon tunes performed by an assortment of ragtag street folks. Producer gary waldman, impressed by word’s singing as well as dancing skills, moved him to a lead role. eventually, word performed off-broadway in a waldman show that quickly closed. since returning, word’s career has begun to sizzle. this past year, he appeared in Hair at the Kravis center; evita, the soul of motor city and swing, swing, swing at broward stage Door theater and, in December, he portrayed tJ, an oddball character in sister Act at the wick theatre in boca Raton. Reviewer christine Dolan called word’s depiction of tJ “a breakout performance for the actor, who moves

like gumby-meets-michael Jackson and mines every moment to maximum comic effect.” the description elicited a satisfying laugh from word, a self-described extrovert and “goofball” who occasionally lapses into seriousness between long stretches of silliness. “i got it from my mom,” symone Hylton, a hairdresser and cosmetologist who, her son notes with pride, “is a hard worker.” He gets a lot of feedback from his mother as well as others in his family. coincidentally, word is virtually the only one with a knack for theater. “the rest are athletes. my sisters are cheerleaders, my older sister is a cheerleader coach. my cousin plays football and baseball. we are all really tall.”

Elijah Word

He admits that showing up in Hair at Kravis gained him some notoriety. one role that forced him to stretch his skill was in the Life, a sordid musical tale about the hookers who prowled times square circa 1980. “it was tough. i was just a Elijah Word and some of his followers in the lobby of the Wick Theatre in Boca Raton; from left, Amy London, Elijah, Meghan Frost, Jake Adler and Rio Frost. baby, about 20. it was the (Photo by Dale King) first time I ever had to play a bad guy. i had to play a sleazy kind of guy. my mom came to see it, and her jaw still, word longs to be on broadway, perhaps even dropped.” oddly enough, “a lot of the people in the cast as the lead in Pippin – or Aaron burr in Hamilton. “it’s were my close friends.” a goal…..it’s a goal. i’ve shaken hands and bumped elbows with a lot of people up there. And movies, too, And still are. Andre Russell, who played Fleetwood i won’t shut that out. i’ll go to L.A. i have a lot of friends in the Life, was in sister Act. Don seward and Leah there, too.” sessa, other actors word met along the way, were also part of the just-concluded show at wick. the north broward actor said he has a favorite quote: “the job of an actor is to display life to life.” with the new year here, word is contracted for a couple of shows at slow burn theatre – Xanadu and big River. “i took that quote and ran with it,” he says. “there are so “After that, i may go back to New York.” but the Kravis many layers of life we get to discover.” center is conducting auditions for several musicals. And he has noticed.

skillfully balancing an entire family’s demands from school, sports, activities and careers leaves little down time, but keeping family values front and center may be easier than you think when you make a commitment to carving out meaningful moments to share. Unplug from the digital world. today’s technology-ridden world makes it easy for families to be present but not engaged. when you create a technologyfree zone, you eliminate distractions so you can keep the focus on each other. Dedicate time every week to spend as a family without the use of tV, tablets, computers and phones. Bond and bake together. there’s a little baker in everyone. after all, who can help but “woo-hoo” when you pull fresh cupcakes out of the oven? take a little time to embrace your inner Doughboy, turn your kitchen into a fun zone and savor all the moments with your family. one easy way to get started is with Pillsbury™ Purely simple™ baking and frosting mixes, which use simple ingredients and contain no colors, preservatives or artificial flavors, providing a delicious homemade taste. they’re the perfect mixes to challenge your family to enjoy a kitchen full of laughter, anticipation and the delightful aroma of baked goods fresh from the oven. Share family stories. reminiscing about special family moments is an essential part of keeping those memories alive. showcasing old photo albums is a great way to share fun and nostalgic memories, which can help bring your family closer together. whether it was a trip to the mountains or visiting a nearby museum, discussing and reliving these memorable moments can evoke fond memories and a willingness to create new ones. Set a day each week for family night. it’s easy to get caught up in a busy schedule, which is why consciously setting aside family time is essential. once it’s set, you may be tempted to turn the open night at home into an invitation to catch up on housework or even just relax. avoid the temptation and instead look for fun ways to spend that time as a family. start a puzzle or play a board game. initiate a Diy project for the house, spend time baking or cooking a meal, or simply sit together and talk about what’s happening in the lives of those who matter most.

St. Jude Catholic Church, Boca, to honor Educator, doctors, parents, school staffer at Ball. BY Dale King st. Jude catholic church in boca raton is planning its 24th annual black tie ball for Feb. 4, an event that will honor the president of a boca raton university, two physicians who are also members of the church; a church school staffer and the parents of a student. the early February event will be held in the Mount carmel grand ballroom at 21689 toledo road, boca raton. the celebration begins with a cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m. “a magnificent five-course meal” will then be served, say organizers, followed by dancing to the Ted Knight Orchestra, a 10-piece society musical group. Co-chairpersons, Liza and J. Albert Johnson, say the ball “promises to be the best event ever held in support of the parish.” “this year’s black tie ball will honor Dr. Kevin Ross, president of Lynn University,” Johnson said. “awards will also be presented to two leading physicians in the boca raton area who are also parishioners, Dr. cristina Figueira and Dr. anthony Dardano.” “in addition, an award will be presented to Kelly baird of the st. Jude school staff in recognition of her contributions.” Mr. and Mrs. Hardy taylor will also been honored. they are parents of one child at st. Jude school and another at saint John Paul academy. “In the past,” the Johnsons said, “the ball has represented the social highlight of the year. this year, because of its expanded presentation, it will surely be ‘a night to remember.’”

Creating Resolutions that Stick! the new year is upon us. the gift and energy of a fresh slate…a chance for growth, for change, for creation, for resolution of what we want to be different from the year before. Maybe it’s a resolution for improved health and weight loss, a resolution for a new career, a new business or enhanced relationship. Perhaps you’re resolving to manage your emotions, such as being less angry. or you may simply resolve to cultivate more happiness and joy into your life every day. the challenge is not in what resolutions we set, the challenge is in how to achieve and sustain what we are after. i am sure we can all admit to the experience of setting a resolution, feeling ready and pumped, only to lose steam and commitment after a month or two. yup, you’re not alone! There are a few key elements to creating sustainable, long-lasting change. And i am grateful to share them with you.

example of leadership in providing educational services for students from more than 90 countries around the world. under his direction, the school has become completely digitized. all reference materials can be accessed via computer or by personal hand-held devices.” Dr. Dardano Sr. is chief medical officer for Delray Medical Center. He is a boardcertified obstetrician gynecologist with more than 30 years of experience. a 1992 graduate of the brown university alpert Medical school, Dr. Figueira works in Delray beach and specializes in internal medicine. a practicing physician for 24 years, she publishes a weekly health care guide for st. Jude parishioners. the parish of st. Jude was founded in 1979. since the early 1990s, it has been administered by the carmelite order. the church also operates a school for children in kindergarten through grade 8, said Johnson, who noted: “it has been awarded many honors over the years.” st. Jude school was dedicated in 1986.

Kevin Ross became the fifth president of Lynn university in 2006, succeeding his father, Donald ross, upon his retirement. During the younger ross’ tenure, the university has made significant strides in support of its strategic plan called “Lynn 2020.” Under the younger Ross’ leadership, the university has implemented a redesigned core curriculum, the nationally recognized Dialogues; a first-year student experience titled the citizenship Project and a three-year undergraduate degree program.

1.It’s all YOU - Before you can act on the resolutions you have chosen, you Must start by accepting 100% personal responsibility for where you are in your life right now. Like, outrageous, full, entire responsibility. Period. once you are able to say, yes, it is me that is the control center of my life, then you can go to key element #2. 2. Get Clear – what is your resolution? why do you want? How will life be different once you get there? who do you get to become on your way? what does it feel like? what will not getting there cost you? these are some great questions to ask yourself as you get clear and create that vision. it is with that clarity and vision that you will be able to make choices that align with that vision. that align with that big wHy behind what you want. when any obstacles arise, which they will, you can call on that vision – picture it, feel it, believe it – and that carries you through, inspiring you to continue going for it! 3. Say it Loud, Say it Proud – share your resolution. tell people. write it with dry erase on your bathroom mirror. when you speak and see your intentions and goals, they become more real. the universe hears it too. sharing it also creates accountability. bonus tip – write and speak your resolutions as if there are already happening. 4. One Bite at a Time – when you see your resolution, chunk it down. create an action plan that allows you to take small, little shifts. when we start off sprinting, it leaves very little energy for the long haul, so see it as a marathon. slow and steady. small step by small step. 5. Practice Gratitude – when you are in a state of gratitude, you are reprogramming your brain into an abundance mindset. abundance attracts abundance. commit to a daily practice journal and write down 5 things you were grateful for in each day. the super bonus here is that it also instantly creates more joy and fulfillment in your life. you have everything inside you, to create everything you want…a life that you love! go get it!

FAMILY FEATURES

weaters and scarves aren’t the only ways to brace yourself against blustery weather. There’s no time like winter to putter in the kitchen, where the cozy heat from the stove and the aromas of mouthwatering dishes can warm you from the inside out. Rich, hearty stews and creamy casseroles are perfect for winter dinners, but when you’re craving something other than traditional comfort food, there are plenty of other options that will chase away the chill, such as a glass of Pinot Noir. These three dishes feature common proteins – chicken, beef and fish – in preparations that make it easy to reimagine your winter weather menu. Find more recipes and ideas for warming up this winter at culinary.net. A Cold-Weather Solution

While it can be a challenge, there are several ways to pair food and wine appropriately during winter, despite bitter weather. A warm, comforting dish, like Roasted Chicken with Salsa Verde from James Beard award-winning chef Jonathan Waxman, combines well with rosé during the cold season. One reasonably priced wine that matches chicken well is Angeline California Rosé of Pinot Noir. The crisp flavors of light red fruits combine with the herbs accompanying the chicken. It’ll also complement the many other flavors of winter, when an array of dishes hit the table and challenge hosts to find the right wine to serve. For more wines that work well in wintertime, visit angelinewinery.com.

Chicken and Salsa Verde

Recipe courtesy of chef Jonathan Waxman Chicken: 1 fresh free-range organic chicken (4 pounds) sea salt, to taste freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 lemon Salsa Verde: 1/4 cup capers in salt 4 anchovy filets 3 cloves garlic 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley 1/2 cup chopped arugula 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

Whole and Hearty

A hearty meat-and-potatoes meal is a sure way to warm up on a cold winter night. This heart-healthy, one-dish meal is made with lean top round beef, lots of vegetables and a spicy herb mixture. Find more healthy main dish ideas at health.gov.

Black Skillet Beef with Greens and Red Potatoes

Recipe courtesy of the USDA 1 pound top round beef 1 tablespoon paprika 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/8 teaspoon red pepper 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard nonstick spray 8 red-skinned potatoes, halved 3 cups onion, finely chopped 2 cups beef broth 2 large garlic cloves, minced

JANUARY 2017

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1/4 cup chopped tarragon 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives 1/4 cup chopped fresh sage 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/4 teaspoon sea salt To make chicken: Heat oven to 450 F. Wash chicken in hot water. Dry with paper towels. Using kitchen shears, cut out backbone of chicken and remove any fat (this can be added to chicken stock). Using heavy chef’s knife, cut out breastbone. Season halves with sea salt and black pepper. Place chicken halves, skin side up, on two sizzle platters and dab with olive oil. Cut lemon in half and place 1 half, cut side down, next to chicken on each platter. Roast chicken 35 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. When done, remove chicken to platter and pour off excess fat. Cut each breast in half and cut the thigh from the leg. Serve with salsa verde (recipe below) and garnish with roasted lemon. To make salsa verde: Soak capers in cold water 1 hour then drain. Soak anchovies in cold water 15 minutes then pat dry and remove bones. Using mortar and pestle, smash capers, anchovies and garlic, until smooth, then transfer to large bowl. Add all herbs and olive oil. Season with sea salt. Pair each serving with Angeline California Rosé of Pinot Noir.

2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2 1/2-inch strips 2 bunches (1/2 pound each) mustard, kale or turnip greens, stems removed, coarsely torn Partially freeze beef. Thinly slice across grain into strips 1/8-inch thick and 3 inches wide. Trim away visible fat. Combine paprika, oregano, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, red pepper and dry mustard. Coat strips of meat with spice mixture. Spray large, heavy skillet with nonstick spray. Heat pan over high heat. Add meat; cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Add potatoes, onion, broth and garlic. Cook over medium heat, covered, 20 minutes. Stir in carrots; lay greens over top and cook, covered, until carrots are tender, about 15 minutes.

Rosemary Krieger, Lifetime Achiever By Dale King

E

ven as 2017 begins, Rosemary Krieger of boca Raton is still in shock, she admits, from an event that took place in late 2016.

in November, the woman who has supported a score of local and area charities and nonprofits with financial donations, leadership for fundraising events and sustenance for facilities in their networks received the Junior League of boca Raton’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute. (Photo by Dale King)

when a shaky, stunned and teary-eyed Rosemary reached the podium, she thanked the nearly 1,000 people in the audience at the 29thAnnual woman Volunteer of the Year Luncheon & Fashion show at the boca Raton Resort & club. she had particularly kind words for her husband, ben, longtime partner in giving, and her three children who flew in from around the country: sons Kenneth, from New York and gregory, from Delaware, and daughter, catherine Krieger-Nelson, from Dallas. “I’ve gotten flowers, emails and calls,” said Rosemary in a recent interview, her smiling face still beaming with excitement. “i didn’t expect to get the award. i am still in shock.” many in the audience were themselves in tears as they stood and applauded Rosemary, whose beneficence has helped dozens of nonprofits, from AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse), the YmcA, march of Dimes, george snow scholarship Fund, wayne barton center, st. Jude church, boca Helping Hands and Florence Fuller child Development center, to name a few. Among those at her table was AVDA executive Director Pam o’brien, who nominated Rosemary for the award. “she is a true giver who thinks of others before herself,” said O’Brien. “She wants to make sure that women and children in need have a safe place to go.”

the generous lady from boca has a simple philosophy about giving. “You don’t think about it, you just do it. I has to come from the heart.” coincidentally, barely a month after receiving the honor, Rosemary has jumped back into an AVDA cause. she is on the committee planning the Feb. 21 “Heart of a Woman” luncheon fundraiser at the Boca Resort. The speaker will be Michelle Knight, one of the three women abducted, imprisoned and repeatedly raped by Ariel castro at his home in cleveland. Nabbed by the suspect between 2002 and 2004 were Knight (who has changed her name legally to Lilly Rose Lee), Georgina DeJesus and Amanda Berry. They finally escaped in 2013 when Castro was captured, tried and sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison. He committed suicide behind bars. Rosemary was one of five nominated for the Lifetime Achievement Award. Others were Joan englert (big children’s Foundation), Donna goray (Farmworker children’s center, inc.), mary Perper (Florence Fuller child Development center) and Anne bright, Lupus Foundation of America, Florida chapter. the Junior League also chose susan whelchel as its Volunteer of the Year. Former boca Raton mayor, city councilwoman and ex-member of the Palm beach county school board, she has been a Junior League member since 1978. the luncheon included a saks Fifth Avenue boca Raton fall trends fashion show.

Window Treatment Design Trends – What’s In & What’s Out!

W

hen i visit a home, one of the first things a client will ask me is for advice on what’s in and what’s out. As a “seasoned” window coverings professional with 40 years of experience, I’ve become pretty adept at spotting the trends, giving my clients peace-of-mind that the products they select represent the latest in design and technology. Custom window treatments are the best way to up the wow factor of your space, whether you’re covering a bare window or replacing an outdated style. But don’t start your decorating project until you read this year’s guide to the hottest window treatment trends.

WHAT’S IN Window shadings Clean lines and contemporary design schemes continue to gain favor as homeowners embrace a less is more approach to decorating. Chunky blinds and over-the-top treatments are being replaced by simple window shadings that enhance incoming light and soften the space. But don’t be fooled. These shades may look simple, but they actually feature the latest in window treatment design. Motorization Smart homeowners upgrade to motorization for increased convenience and a sleek cordless look at the window. Operate shades with the touch of a button using an app or remote control. For the most advanced operating system on the market, choose PowerView® Motorization from Hunter Douglas which allows you to schedule blinds and shades to automatically adjust to your preferred setting throughout the day. Organic materials Window treatments made from natural materials, like linen, bamboo and woven woods add a beautiful organic aesthetic to your windows. Textiles with flecks, nubbiness and bigger weaves are also popular this season providing a rich visual and tactile experience.

www.bocasbestMagazine.coM

Matte finishes The high-shine, glossy appearance is losing favor as sleek matte finishes are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners. Low-luster stains and paint colors won’t compete with other furnishing and provide an understated elegance to blinds and shutters.

WHAT’S OUT Ready-made curtains Avoid the headache of trying to make a ready-made product fit by choosing a custom drapery solution. Your treatments will be fabricated to your exact window specifications and your panels will be the perfect length and fullness. Plus, you will have infinitely more fabric, finishing and hardware choices for a perfect decorating match. Mini-blinds Decades ago, mini-blinds were the preferred window treatment style. But now, this basic covering looks dull and outdated. If your window still features this drab window treatment style, it’s time to upgrade to a more fashionforward look. Ill-fitting window treatments Crooked shades, bent blinds and light gaps are just a few of the window treatment fails I see on a regular basic. These eyesores are usually a result of DIY installation gone wrong which is why it’s time to hire a professional installer.

He helps homeowners in Boca Raton choose the perfect window treatments to match their style and budget. To schedule your free in-home consultation, call (866) 370-6818 or email LeeT@decorview.com.

Caring For Pets Since 1981

Animal Hospital of Boca Raton

Keep Pets Safe, Healthy During the Holidays the holiday season is synonymous with family gatherings, dinner parties, gift openings and plenty of festive food, all of which can pose challenges for pets.

christmas trees can also pique the interest of curious cats and playful pups. Darling urges pet parents to firmly anchor trees so they can take any potential playful swatting and to keep breakable glass ornaments higher up on the tree, out of pets’ reach, along with temptations like tinsel and ribbons. candles can also be problematic, so it’s best to avoid burning them or put them far out of pets’ reach. seasonal plants like holly, mistletoe and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs and cats, so if you plan to decorate your home with them, place them in an area your pet cannot reach. Savor the Season The holidays are filled with festive food, treats and candy, and although it can be tempting to share human foods with your beloved pets, resist the urge. “table scraps such as turkey, gravy and stuffing may look harmless, but even small amounts can lead to serious health issues,” Darling said. instead, include pets in your festive feasting by offering them pet-friendly treats that look and taste like the real thing. an option like simply nourish www.bocasbestMagazine.coM

2014, 2015 & 2016 In Sun Sentinel

Merry Meals, in flavors like Turkey, sweet Potato and cranberry, are healthy alternatives to the human food on the holiday table. additionally, Petsmart’s meat and cheese tray, pie slice and turkey leg made of rawhide are fun takes on holiday feasting specifically formulated for pets. Keep Them Calm the holidays can be a hectic time for people and pets. extra visitors to the house, travel and commotion can leave pets feeling anxious. “before company arrives, try putting your dog or cat in a thundershirt, which is designed to provide a calming effect when they experience fear or discomfort,” Darling said. “Many pet parents also find that supplements can work by promoting calmness and behavior which may help stabilize pets’ moods.” Keep Them Cozy and Warm During especially cold winter days and nights, look to your pet to gauge comfort levels and plan time to dress them accordingly. generally, if your pet is small and short-haired, it’s likely he or she is sensitive to the cold. the same goes for older pets and those that may be frail or ill.

Darling says that sweaters, coats and booties to protect their paws are all smart (and comfortable) solutions. booties are particularly important for icy areas that may be salted and can help guard paws from the harmful solution. a safe home is a happy and festive home this holiday season. Keeping these tips in mind can help avoid emergency trips to the vet, which means the whole family can celebrate a joyful holiday season.

Create a Safe Home this time of year, holiday decor can include seasonal plants, ornaments and candles, which means plenty of intriguing and dangerous new sights and smells for pets. For example, extra electrical cords can be tempting new “chew toys” for pets. Darling recommends taking special care to ensure extra electrical cords for festive indoor lighting are not accessible to pets by taping down or covering to help prevent injuries.

5 Tips for Managing Diabetes

Living with diabetes is no laughing matter, but as many would say, laughter is often the best medicine. this is certainly true for comedic actress Yvette Nicole brown, who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2013. in partnership with the American Diabetes Association and colgate total through the “Laugh out Loud” campaign, brown offers the following tips for a healthy smile and managing diabetes with a touch of humor. Get Moving when it comes to diabetes, small lifestyle changes can make a big difference. Taking the first step toward exercising can be difficult for many, but a little bit goes a long way. try parking further away from the door, taking the stairs instead of the elevator or taking the longer route when you walk the dog. whatever it may be, choose an activity that you enjoy doing and keep it consistent. Give Your Smile Some Extra TLC You’re twice as likely to develop gum disease if you have diabetes. when brown learned that, she immediately started taking better care of her teeth. she recommends brushing morning and night with a specially formulated toothpaste like colgate total, which reduces 83 percent more germs that cause gingivitis, the most common form of gum disease, as compared to an ordinary non-antibacterial toothpaste. Befriend Your Dentist Don’t be afraid to become friends with your dentist. brown has her dentist on speed-dial, even calling or texting him in the middle of the night sometimes. You don’t have to be best friends with your dentist, but it’s crucial to establish a good relationship. they’re the expert who you can turn to for all your oral health care needs, and oral health care is important for those living with diabetes. Find Your Tribe when you’re living with diabetes, you need a strong support system. be it friends, family or an online community, things are easier when you’ve got your tribe. A good place to get your questions answered and find people who are going through the same journey as you is oralHealthandDiabetes.com. Live Confidently “every time i think about my type 2 diabetes, i say to myself ‘so what? You are a strong, confident woman. Don’t let your diabetes run your life,’” brown said. Diabetes isn’t a hindrance, it’s just a slight hiccup in life that you learn to live with. get your mindset right, don’t let it dictate what you can or cannot do. when brown was a kid her mom would say, “sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.” that’s sometimes what people do when they get any kind of health diagnosis. The first response is, “Oh no,” and then you find a way around it. For more information about the connection between oral health and diabetes, visit OralHealthandDiabetes.com or search #OralHealthDiabetes on social media.

Boca Helping Hands Enriches Lives With Resources That Offer A Hand Up

COMMUNITY NEWS

Rosemary Krieger, Lifetime Achiever

BY Y LouIsE PEtRaItIs

By Dale King

“together, together, we can make a difference.” t

Financial Aid for Emergencies

this philosophy has guided Boca Helping Hands BYLINE(BHH), HEREa non-profit organization that assists neighbors in need, for nearly 20 years.

For people facing financial crises, BHH steps in with immediate aid. Dollars devoted to this program help prevent eviction, utility shut-offs and other emergency situations.

Founded in 1998, BHH started as a soup kitchen in a local church. t today, it’s a thriving, $2 million operation that provides a wealth of food, financial, medical and jobrelated resources for individuals and families throughout the community.

Like food services, the financial assistance program is designed “to supplement, not sustain,” swedenborg explains. Boca Raton residents who apply must document their needs and usually receive a onetime payment, reinforcing BHH goal to lend a hand up, rather than a hand out. “we don’t enable,” says swedenborg. “Our mission is to instill dignity and foster independence.”

Feeding the Hungry BHH welcomes up to 200 guests a day for hot meals, which are served at the Remillard Family Resource center, BHH spacious home at 1500 Nw 1st court. Lunch is offered Mondays through Fridays, and family dinners are scheduled thursday evenings. Patrons include people of all ages, from all walks of life--the elderly, single moms with kids, veterans, the unemployed and the working poor. the program is unique among community meal programs. guests can choose from a wide selection of healthy, upscale fare, and enjoy their meals in the comfort and comradery of a pleasant, wood-trimmed dining room that resembles a small café. Menu items are lovingly prepared, and beautifully presented, by a caring team of volunteers. Even special occasions, from st. Patrick’s Day to the Kentucky Derby, are celebrated with specially themed dishes, dining room décor, and staff dress. “Everything, from the food to the atmosphere, reflects our passion for our work and respect for those we serve,” says Development Manager Karen swedenborg. through the program, hot meals are delivered to the homebound as well. Over 5,000 pantry bags, filled with a variety of groceries, are also distributed monthly to qualified, low-income residents of Palm Beach County. Additionally, the program’s backpack service, which benefits 1,400 boys and girls from ten schools, ensures that children are well fed on the weekends. Keeping BHH warehouse and kitchen shelves fully stocked is a huge undertaking. Canned, frozen, and fresh goods—1.8 million pounds annually--are donated by individuals and foundations, corporate and community food drives, and food recovery partners. at present, these partners include 100-plus stores and restaurants, from Publix, winn-Dixie, t target and walmart, to whole Foods, trader Joe’s and the capital grille.

“I’ve gotten flowers, emails and calls,” said Rosemary in a recent interview, her smiling face still beaming with excitement. “i didn’t expect to get the award. i am still in shock.”

Excellent job skills are key to gaining independence. To help clients build these skills, and better compete in the marketplace, BHH offers both mentoring and training. The mentoring program develops job readiness by coaching clients, one-on-one, on writing resumes, submitting online applications, conducting job searches, and practicing proper workplace etiquette. classes to improve English and computer literacy are available as well.

many in the audience were themselves in tears as they stood and applauded Rosemary, whose beneficence has helped dozens of nonprofits, from AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse), the YmcA, march of Dimes, george snow scholarship Fund, wayne barton center, st. Jude church, boca Helping Hands and Florence Fuller child Development center, to name a few.

#IAmStigmaFree

Job training centers on jump starting clients’ careers, through fast-track courses for lucrative positions as hospitality workers, home-health aides, commercial drivers, call center representatives and help-desk technicians. the program is highly successful, both in completion and job placement rates, says Swedenborg. “Students enrolled to become home health aides, for example, rarely drop out, and 85 to 90 percent find work after graduation.”

Health Care Services Added this year, BHH expanded its spectrum of services with medical and dental care. Joining forces with another non-profit, Genesis Community Health, BHH established a clinic at 30 sE 6th street in downtown Boca, where people from across the county receive physical exams, lab tests, and other primary care procedures. the ultimate goal is to treat 3,000 patients a year.

Join the NAMI Broward County mental health walk to raise funds and awareness to help change perceptions about mental illness.

Among those at her table was AVDA executive Director Pam o’brien, who nominated Rosemary for the award. “she is a true giver who thinks of others before herself,” said O’Brien. “She wants to make sure that women and children in need have a safe place to go.”

coincidentally, barely a month after receiving the honor, Rosemary has jumped back into an AVDA cause. she is on the committee planning the Feb. 21 “Heart of a Woman” luncheon fundraiser at the Boca Resort. The speaker will be Michelle Knight, one of the three women abducted, imprisoned and repeatedly raped by Ariel castro at his home in cleveland. Nabbed by the suspect between 2002 and 2004 were Knight (who has changed her name legally to Lilly Rose Lee), Georgina DeJesus and Amanda Berry. They finally escaped in 2013 when Castro was captured, tried and sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison. He committed suicide behind bars.

when a shaky, stunned and teary-eyed Rosemary reached the podium, she thanked the nearly 1,000 people in the audience at the 29thAnnual woman Volunteer of the Year Luncheon & Fashion show at the boca Raton Resort & club. she had particularly kind words for her husband, ben, longtime partner in giving, and her three children who flew in from around the country: sons Kenneth, from New York and gregory, from Delaware, and daughter, catherine Krieger-Nelson, from Dallas.

Preparation for the Workforce

Funding for BHH many operations spans individual donations (40 percent), to dollars garnered through foundations and fundraising. The organization hosts two signature fundraising events a year, Bowling for Bread, part of the Boca chamber Festival Days calendar, and Monopoly & casino Night, highlighted by a Monopoly competition. grant monies, which totaled $665,000 in 2015, also contribute a fair amount to BHH revenues.

ven as 2017 begins, Rosemary Krieger of boca Raton is still in shock, she admits, from an event that took place in late 2016.

in November, the woman who has supported a score of local and area charities and nonprofits with financial donations, leadership for fundraising events and sustenance for facilities in their networks received the Junior League of boca Raton’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
