RELIGION – CHANGE – CHAVEZ – HEART BALL
“Beware the Ides of March”. This Shakespearean phrase seemed to nth. materialize in many ways last month. ghs. The Stock Market hit all time highs. ter. Washington DC began its sequester. The temperature dropped. The la’s Pope stepped down and Venezuela’s president passed away. wn Pope Benedict XVI stepped down making him the second to do so in ope four centuries. Now we have Pope Francis, the ﬁrst from Argentina - not a European country. So, as the Catholic Church begins to deal with the new leadership, our chairman and editor chose to delve into the different religionss in uld our own community. It’s out of the norm for Lifestyle, but it could nal be interesting to look at the facts. With all the diversity of national ally origins in our County, religious diversity appears to be proportionally as vast. The writer will take a look at the changing landscape and the challenges of ﬁnding spiritual guidance or fulﬁllment. To my friends who celebrated or who are celebrating their High Holidays, I wish you much happiness in your faith and the traditions you pass along to your family. Speaking of change, the cooler weather last month brought on a much needed break from the unusually higher temperatures early in the year. Still, change is constant. There’s a saying, “Change your negative thoughts to positive ones. Change what you day dream about. Change how you talk. The day you change your responses is the day your life will begin to get better!” Let’s hope the leaders in our country feel the same way and get back to working on solving our ﬁscal issues. It seems Wall Street has ﬁgured it out. As for my Venezuelan friends, the passing of Hugo Chavez may mean a changing face to their homeland. I don’t expect any mass exodus back, but there is optimism for a return to the democratic rule of law once known to those now making South Florida their home. I suspect they have businesses and family they would be interested in getting back to someday. Looking ahead to May, the Heart Ball, beneﬁting the American Heart Association, will take place May 4 at the Marriott Harbor Beach. The evening celebrates the work, mission, donors, volunteers, and most importantly, the lives saved and improved because of this event’s effort. The Heart Ball promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion bringing community and philanthropic leaders together. I look forward to seeing you there. As we move into Spring and the second quarter of the year, I hope you are moving toward achieving your goals. Remember, “your current circumstances do not determine where you are going; they only inﬂuence where you start.”

He’s not clowning around At 6 years old, some kids are learning how to ride a bicycle. Wesley Williams learned how to ride a unicycle. Now he can perform tricks on a three-wheel-tall unicycle that tops 9 feet. He can also juggle and walk on 4-foot-high stilts. But now comes his toughest trick yet. The 15-year-old home-schooled Weston resident has been chosen to tour with the Circus Smirkus youth circus in the New England area for 10 weeks this summer – three weeks of practice and seven weeks of touring 14 towns from Rhode Island to Maine. He beat out hundreds of applicants who submitted video to the nonproﬁt circus company. Of those, 41 were invited for live auditions, and Wesley was one of 30 accepted. “He made this tour, but he still has to pay, because it’s quite an expense,” Wesley’s mother Trish says. “They’re a nonproﬁt organization. They put a staff of 44-48 staff members with these kids and erect the tents, set up the equipment, feed them, and house them. So he needs to raise $6,000.” He’s well on his way – on his own. “He’s already done some pretty good work so far,” Trish says. “He does parties and corporate events.” If you want to help Wesley, you can donate online through PayPal at his website, www.woowootheclown.com. “It’s just a passion,” he says.
