from the publisher Here I am again asking myself, “Where did the year go?” I’m trying to prepare for the holidays, but, as organized as I am, they always seem to come too quickly. And, as much as I love being involved with family and community, it doesn’t help that my October calendar is filling up fast.

David’s stepfather is turning 80, so we will be attending a family reunion in Orlando. As ambassadors, we’ll be participating in a number of events for the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I have been invited to a fundraising luncheon. As a community sponsor with the Town of Jupiter, David and I will have a booth at their Fall Fest. Next up is our nephew’s wedding in Virginia.

Whew! Oh, wait – Let’s not forget Halloween! It’s time to stock up on candy, and some neighborhoods go all out on by decorating their homes and having block parties. No matter how you plan on celebrating, I wish for you cooler weather, no rain, and a safe and fun-filled time for everyone involved! And once the jack-o-lantern goes dark, remember that many more hectic holidays are right around the corner. Be sure to take time for yourself and your family. And as always, thank you for taking the time to invite us into your home.

co v e r s t o r y T HE SEA RC YS

Of Those to Whom Much is Given… By Darla Parris Smallwood

The Searcys may not be “beach people,” but they are definitely “Palm Beach Gardens people.” Residents of the town for more than a decade, Darrell and Kori now say they can’t imagine living anyplace else. Darrell, born in Atlanta, Georgia; and Kori, from Evanston, Illinois; grew up pretty far from the shores of the Atlantic. Maybe that explains why you’re more likely to find them relaxing by a sparkling, tranquil pool somewhere than zipping through the waves on a paddleboard, surfboard or jet ski. “We don’t go to the beach much, but we do love hanging out in our backyard or someplace like the Breakers on the weekends,” says Darrell. That’s not to say, however, that Florida’s beautiful beaches haven’t played a role in the couple’s relationship. Well, kind of anyway… In 2006, Darrell, who earned his undergraduate degree in business at Georgia State University and his MBA from the Keller Graduate School of Management, was a banker in Atlanta. Meanwhile, Kori, who earned her degree in mass 8

October 2017

communications at Hampton University in Virginia, had left her New York public relations job for another in Florida. Darrell recalls the first time he met Kori: “It was at a wedding in Miami… I sat across from her at the reception, and then I stalked her until she agreed to marry me.” As soon as he returned to Atlanta, Darrell put his Atlanta house on the market. Soon he was off to Florida to reconnect with Kori and start over. The fact that things were “headed south” in the banking industry by that time, he says, made it easier for him to do the same. Three years (and three proposals) after their first meeting, Kori finally said yes, and the two planned to say their own vows on the sands of South Beach; theirs would be the first wedding at the W there. The couple flew in friends and family and were all set to be married outside until, about two minutes before the ceremony, it began raining. “That sent everybody running inside,” says Darrell, “but we all still had a great time.” Fast forward to the couple’s life

together today, and the popular wisdom that wedding day rain is actually a good omen seems all the wiser. The Searcys lived in Mirabella for seven years before moving to their current home in Mirasol, a neighborhood that the couple says couldn’t be more perfect for them or their children (son Chandler, 16; daughter Campbelle, 13; and son Daschle, 6). “There are so many young families here, and it’s truly one of the most diverse country club communities around. It’s a place where you can feel comfortable even if everyone doesn’t share the same ideology or beliefs,” says Darrell. Furthermore, Palm Beach Gardens as a whole is special, he adds. “The friends, the business people, the community itself – all of that makes it the only place in Florida that I want to be.” The beautiful weather and scenery are a pretty big draw as well, notes Kori, and Daschle finds the sharks, turtles and other marine life in the area particularly exciting. Running Chandler Campbelle & Daschle, the company that Darrell (CEO) and Kori co-founded, keeps them busy. Chandler Campbelle & Daschle provides professional management consulting services to the aviation industry, the U.S. Department of Defense, and federal, civilian, municipal

and commercial organizations. Nevertheless, the Searcys know the value of family time and healthy work/life balance. Kori is a self-proclaimed yoga practitioner and overall “exercise enthusiast,” and both she and Darrell enjoy tennis, good food and wine, and – wait for it – snow skiing. But whether they’re off to Deer Valley, Utah, to strap on those skis, touring Washington, D.C., or exploring the Caribbean or Europe, Darrell and Kori simply love traveling with the children. Exposing the kids to other climates, cultures, languages and experiences, agree Darrell and Kori, is crucial to their education and development. While the Searcy family likes “taking in” all that their community/world at large has to offer, they don’t stop there; they also work hard to “give back.” Darrell is involved with ongoing community service efforts through his membership in Sigma Pi Phi, the first successful and oldest AfricanAmerican Greek-lettered organization. He also serves on the board of the United Way of Palm Beach County. Kori is active with the West Palm Beach chapter of Links, Inc., an international, not-for-profit corporation in which thousands of professional women of color volunteer to enrich and ensure the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.

she is the president-elect for the Benjamin School’s parent association. Even the three Searcy children serve through their membership in Jack and Jill of America, Inc., an organization whose mission is to mold future African American leaders “through leadership development, volunteer service, philanthropic giving and civic duty.” All five Searcys served as the 2017 host family for Black Ties and French Fries, a family-friendly gala that raises funds to support programs at the Center for Child Counseling. It was the family’s fourth time being involved in the event; their first time was when Daschle was just one year old. “It was such an honor to be asked to host. We’re so happy to be a part of something like this with our kids there, so they could see us practice what we preach to them about serving,” says Darrell. “Our kids are fortunate, and we want

them not only to appreciate that, but to know they have an obligation to help others who aren’t so fortunate.” In 2018, Black Ties and French Fries will take place at The Country Club at Mirasol, and the Searcys say they wouldn’t miss a chance to be involved once again. “From the time I was a child, my parents instilled this adage in me: “Of those to whom much is given, much is required,” says Kori. “We want to model that for the children. We want them to know that it is actually a blessing to do what we can to help others.”  ————————————————————————————————————— Do you have a story to share, or do you know a neighbor who does?

Celebrate the Season with Town of Jupiter’s

October Fall Fest By Kate Pokorny, Communications & Events Coordinator

Fall in South Florida is filled with family fun, cooler weather and pumpkins. To celebrate the arrival of the season, as well as the return of our seasonal residents, the Town of Jupiter will host its annual Fall Fest on October 7, 2017. The event has something for everyone. For all the little

pumpkins, there will be a kids’ carnival featuring bounce houses, a hay ride, an activity map and face painting. For the adults, the event will showcase many local vendors selling all sorts of wares, from boutique clothing to handmade crafts. Come hungry because there will be plenty of local food vendors and an Octoberfest-style beer garden. As you relax with your food, you’ll enjoy live music by Whiskey Six, one of South Florida's favorite local country bands. While they mainly play modern country, don't be surprised to hear some Cash, Strait, Yoakam or other country classics thrown in. All you animal lovers out there will enjoy the Halloween costume show for dogs, spotlighting some of our cutest local adoptable pets. The Town of Jupiter’s Fall Fest is an event too good to miss! Mark your calendar for Sat., Oct. 7, and join us at The Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk from noon to 5pm for a great time! 

Preparing for "The Fall" By Jill Ball, VP of Operations

I know it’s hard to tell sometimes in South Florida, but the arrival of holiday décor in our local shops and supermarkets means we are officially in the fall season. Perhaps there’s no better time than now to touch on one of the biggest dangers to the senior population: the risk of fall-ing. That first fall to the ground may be abrupt and seemingly out of nowhere. “Mom had a little mishap yesterday,” I’ll hear people say. Or a usually independent, mobile gentlemen will proclaim, “It’s the darndest thing, I just lost my footing and tripped all of a sudden.” It’s actually no surprise when someone not prone to ambulation issues suddenly just loses his/her footing or balance. As we age, our mobility starts to decrease slowly. Although diseases like Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis can be an expedient to decreased independent ambulation, we typically do not notice gradual changes in ourselves or loved ones whom we see regularly. That being said, it is important for seniors and those caring for them to implement a system of checks and balances when it comes to mobility within the home and in routine environment(s). Consider this checklist for preventing trips and topples: • Check home walkways and paths for rugs or narrow areas/ turns that may make it hard to navigate or create tripping hazards. • In doorways where a transition in flooring may occur, insure that there isn’t a “lip” or “bump” that may snag footing or be of hazard to someone with a shuffling gait. • On steps, use brightly colored tape or paint to mark the edge. • Always check any new medication to determine whether dizziness or loss of balance is a listed side effect.

• Since the bathroom (especially at shower/bath time) is where an individual is most susceptible to falling, install handrails in the bathroom and shower/tub and a shower chair in the shower. • Replace pieces of furniture that have wheels or slide easily, like barstools, chairs and kitchen islands. • Use/Encourage the use of a cane or walker if you have/ your loved one has occasional or slight balance issues. Seniors may not always need assistance, but these adaptive tools are excellent preventative measures. • Wear/Encourage the wearing of appropriate footwear that provides good traction and support. • Have your/your loved one’s eyesight checked regularly. • Keep the living area as well-lit and clutter-free as possible. Regular attention to the aforementioned tips goes a long way towards keeping little tumbles and major spills at bay. For those who require more assistance, VIP America can refer a caregiver who is trained on proper transfer techniques and ambulation assistance.

b u s ine s s p ro fi le ANDREW GOLDBERG, GOVIC CAPITAL

Doing What’s Right to Safeguard Your Future By Darla Parris Smallwood, with Andrew Goldberg

Doing the right thing. It’s important to Andrew Goldberg – as a devoted father of three, and as a trusted financial advisor at Govic Capital. There’s nothing he’s more proud of, says Andrew, than his three daughters, ages 16, 14 and six. “Sometimes when you’re busy raising kids and working, you forget what fun is, but my little one reminds me every day.” Andrew spends as much time as possible with her, visiting local parks and beaches and simply enjoying activities. However, being in “good dad mode” isn’t all fun and games, especially when you have one child with special needs. So, as much as Andrew cherishes the more lighthearted moments, he tackles the daily responsibilities too, including making time to volunteer at his youngest daughter’s school. It comes as little surprise that in his work, Andrew takes a similar approach, relishing the interaction with his clients, while also working hard to address their individual situations and needs. With a law degree and two insurance designations (Licensed Long Term Care Professional, LTCP; and Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow, LUTCF), plus 18 years’ experience as a financial advisor, Andrew is wellversed in finding just the right investments and financial solutions for each client. “You may already have someone giving you financial advice,” Andrew says. “Maybe it’s a CPA or a tax professional, or maybe just the guy in the cubicle next to you at work. I’ll give you a second opinion, and tell you what’s good about what you have – I’ll never recommend changing something if it’s already good – but I’ll also give you new ideas that might also be right for you. I have a reputation to uphold; I’m always going to do what’s right for you.” Because he is an independent advisor (as opposed to a

captive one), he “wears no specific hat” when it comes to recommending what’s best. “I’m free to offer opportunities that many other advisors, brokers and planners may not even know exist,” Andrew explains. “With me, you get a comprehensive, ethical and honest approach. I’m not looking to ‘sell you’ – I’ll just help you see what the possibilities are.” He even welcomes clients to share his recommendations with their current “people,” says Andrew, because he knows they’ll agree that his advice is sound. “It’s rewarding to be there on those great days to see clients retire or pay for their kids’ college and know that I helped their financial planning pay off,” says Andrew. “But I believe it’s also my responsibility to ensure that their planning pays off on their worst day, so their lives won’t be ruined by circumstance, and they won’t become a burden to their families.” If you’re looking for an experienced, skilled advisor who offers a straightforward, comprehensive approach to preparing you for whatever lies ahead, email Andrew Goldberg at or call 561.324.3826. 

It’s hard to believe the summer is over, but the school year is in full swing. And now that students in our public schools have found their groove, their teachers can tell which of them need a little extra assistance. That’s where the Anne & Sam Klein Jewish Coalition for Literacy comes in. The program helps students in local public elementary schools improve their reading scores. Volunteer reading partners who are 18 or older are trained by a professional reading specialist about strategies to help children learn to read. Claire is one Claire volunteers once a week in a local of those volunteer public school, helping first-graders with reading partners. their reading skills. The mother of two grown children, she says that getting involved was her chance to help kids develop stronger reading skills and assist in providing them with educational advantages similar to what she afforded her own children. Now a volunteer for 20 years, Claire still makes weekly visits a local school to work with first-graders. The Literacy Coalition is just one of the ways Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Center connects members of our community with inspiring volunteer opportunities. Although there are more than 400 volunteers spending extra time with these children in our schools, the need for additional assistance is always there.

Choosing the Best Pool Pump By Peter C. Marcello Jr.

Here in Florida there are three general types of pool pumps from which you can choose. Here’s a brief overview of the pros and cons of each type: Single-Speed Pool Pumps • Highest operational costs • Lowest upfront costs • Operate at a single speed of 3450 RPM • Operate at a single horsepower ranging from ¾ HP to 3HP • Account for 75% of the pool pumps in the USA Dual-Speed Pool Pumps • Lower operational costs (contribute to significant cost savings) • Higher upfront costs than single-speed pumps • Operate at 2 speeds • Operate at 2 different HPs • Quiet at low speed • Difficult to fine tune flow rates • Additional controller or timer may be needed Variable-Speed Pool Pumps • Lowest operational costs • Most expensive upfront costs • Operate at full range of speeds from 600 RPM – 3450 RPMs • Operate at full range of HPs • Extremely quiet • Easy to fine tune flow rates Here at Palms Pool, we suggest the Intelliflo Variable Speed Pump by Pentair. When Pentair first introduced the Intelliflo variable-speed technology, it set a new bar with energy efficiency, near-silent operation and long service life. Let’s break down those benefits even more specifically: • This modern marvel has an estimated cost of savings of up to $1500 each year, with energy savings up to 90% versus your traditional pumps.

strict energy efficiency criteria set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.) • Not only do these pumps reduce energy use and protect the environment, they operate as low as 45 decibels, which is quieter then a dishwasher or even moderate rainfall. • A variable speed pool pump utilizes what is known as a permanent magnet motor, which is what hybrid cars use. This allows the user to dial in the exact flow rate they need for their pool. • Exclusive software and digital controls make programming a cinch, allowing you to customize your programming to optimum pump speeds for specific tasks such as filtering, heating and cleaning, as well as for spa jets, and waterfalls. When you buy multiple Pentair items through Palms Pool, you get a 3-year extended warranty on all the products, including the Intelliflo. What’s more, you can forget the stress of researching, buying tools and installing the pool pump yourself because Palms Pools offers expert installation services on all Pentair equipment! Call us today at 561.743.0070 to get the perfect pump for your pool. 

This year’s new Touch-A-Truck area features lots of big heavy equipment from FPL, Solid Waste Authority, and PBG Public Works. And, of course, fire trucks and SWAT vehicles will be on hand too! The event will also feature live animals from Busch Wildlife Sanctuary! The overall objective of the event is to “give crime a going-away party” and send the message that Palm Beach Gardens is dedicated to building a stronger, safer city. National Night Out is part of a larger community-wide outreach program sponsored by the Police Foundation to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support for local anti-crime programs and strengthen the policecommunity partnership. The Police Foundation recognizes the importance of strong neighborhoods to a city, as well as the effectiveness of addressing safety issues at the neighborhood level. Events like this one reinforce the relationship between the police and the community and build upon the hand-in-hand partnership so vital to lowering crime rates. Questions about National Night Out should be directed to Sergeant Geoff Soule of the Community Involvement Unit. He can be reached at 561.578.2750 or at 
