DR. LISA J. LEARN


stop suffering from migraines Ever since I can remember I had headaches. When I was a teenager I noticed my jaw was locking and clicking. My parents took me to all kinds of Doctors and I had many scans,and MRI's. No one could find out why I had this terrible condition. Each Doctor would put me on another medication to control my pain. I found Dr. Kodish two months ago and I am very thankful. Since I began tru-denta therapy I am pain free for the first time since I can remember. I feel like I can go on trips and be normal again.

Kody was a chronic headache and migraine sufferer who was on a daily regimen of pain medicine. After his very first treatment, Kody headaches disminished significantly.

October is here and we are in the final quarter of the year. Many families are preparing for Halloween while most businesses are gearing up to make the best of the remaining months, as well as beginning preparations for the coming year. It’s actually a new fiscal year for your local government (starting October 1st) and I am glad to report that property values are continuing to rise around the county. I recall my initial publisher’s letter this year, my urging you to set personal and professional goals—and to include making a difference in your community as one of your objectives. I trust you are well on your way to having a productive and rewarding year. If not, remember, “Your current circumstances do not determine where you go; they merely determine where you begin.” So use these remaining months to start again and Make This Year Count! Our cover story is a follow up to last month’s history of our community. I received many positive comments on the articles highlighting how our cities came to exist. Now we are taking a look at all the aspects of lifestyle— from cultural perks to educational excellence—which make our cities great. Each has a unique way of life, yet all share our common desire to live, work and play in a safe environment where our quality of life can continue to improve and blossom for ourselves and our families. October is also your last chance to nominate a Leader In Law. The first of our signature events, the Leaders In Law Awards is a unique awards program for legal professionals whose dedication to their occupation and to their community deserves recognition. We will showcase the honorees in the February issue. Are you one of the lawyers who should be honored? Or do you know a legal professional who should be honored? Please take a moment to complete the nomination form at www.lmgfl.com/awards.

On the river: Ready for retail Jill Johns grants a wish

Coming Full Circle A Fort Lauderdale Realtor remembers, and gives back More than 20 years ago, a youngster named Jill Johns was battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer that attacks the immune system. At the time, she was granted her wish by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to hang out with entertainer Arsenio Hall. Flash forward and Johns, a successful Fort Lauderdale realtor, has not only recovered from her illness, but has become a highly active member of the Board of Directors of Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. Her work on the board has been so exemplary that Johns was named “Humanitarian of the Year” for 2013 by the Florida Realtors Association—the only winner among 100,000 eligible realtors. “I’ve been where these kids are and hope that me being a survivor is living proof to them that they can also overcome a life-threatening illness,” says Johns. The Southern Florida chapter grants a wish every 16 hours, at an average cost of $5,000, for medically eligible children.

Cool Blades Hilton Hotel uses the ocean breeze to cut energy costs Kudos to the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort for its initiative to become a model of energy sustainability (go green!). The hotel is the first in South Florida to install wind turbines in an attempt to cut energy costs and tap into an eco-friendly power source. Six custom-designed wind turbines have been strategically placed to capture the natural breeze from the Atlantic Ocean and help power the facility. The turbines are expected to produce 24,000 kilowatt hours of energy and reduce the hotel’s electric bill by 5 to 10 percent annually (up to $50,000 a year in savings). All for an intitial investment of $500,000. “We are proud of this renewable energy intiative as well as other ecofriendly programs that implement sustainable practices that will help future generations,” says General Manager Andreas Ioannou. The turbines are expected to be operational this month.

Downtown Pop Up The Las Olas Riverfront gets a retail revival Anyone who has walked along the Las Olas Riverfont in recent years knows what a ghost town the area has become, despite its lovely frontage on the New River. Now, “Pop Up Las Olas” has arrived to revive the historic area, just west of the Andrews Avenue bridge in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The project is the brainchild of Athan “Tom” Prakas, president of Prakas & Co., who was tapped by the investors who purchased the 254,000-square-foot retail complex in 2011 (price tag: $16.7 million). Prakas & Co. has leased the space at ‘aggressive’ short-term rates to clients who want to test the location with a mix of arts, shopping, culture, restaurants and retail. “Riverfront’s glory days will be back with the arrival of Pop Up Las Olas,” says Prakas, who predicts a renaissance for the dormant zone. Helping jump start things this month is sure-fire tenant Festival of Souls, a 23-day Halloween event featuring two haunted houses: Demon Mansion and Pitch Black Maze. Talk about ghost towns!

Broward Buzz Rita Hofrichter, Survivor and Vice President; Sen. Steve Geller, Chairman; and Rositta E. Kenigsberg, daughter of a Survivor and President of the Holocaust Center

Finally, A Holocaust Museum A Center Grows in Dania Beach The Holocaust Documentation and Education Center, Inc, South Florida’s first true museum dedicated to the Nazi genocide of Europe’s Jews during WWII, will open by year’s end in Dania Beach. South Florida is home to the second largest population of Holocaust Survivors in the U.S., and while it has several memorials to the tragedy of the concentration camps, the new Center will be its first comprehensive museum and study center. When complete, the 26,000-foot facility will house 6,000 books and 2,500 taped testimonials, films and DVDs—as well as numerous historic artifacts, including one of the railcars used to deport Jews to the camps and one of the Sherman tanks used to liberate the survivors.

Officials in Dania Beach believe the center will revitalize the area (location: 303 N. Federal Highway) and become a major tourist attraction and destination. “This center will fulfill our promise to beloved Survivors to never forget what happened,” says Rositta Kenigsberg, president of the center and the daughter of a holocaust survivor. “Whatever additional help the community can provide will be warmly welcomed.” True to its South Florida location, the permanent exhibit of photos and artifacts will tell the story in Spanish as well as English. For more information please contact 954-929-5690 ext. 201 or rositta@hdec.org.

We Want You Broward Police heavily recruiting qualified applicants If your cruising down Interstate 95, you just might see Uncle Sam’s latest recruitment notice in the shape of a towering billboard that reads: “Serve with Honor, JOIN THE FORCE.” “We are serious about getting people who are committed to serving this community with integrity,” says Hollywood Police Chief Frank Fernandez. The city budget deficits and slashing pay cuts that caused a mass exodus of police officers over the last few years is giving way to an intense recruitment campaign reminiscent

of WWI as Broward Police ramps up their efforts to lure fresh, qualified applicants. Recruits must pass a long and tedious selection process where only 1 in 40 applicants make the cut. Hollywood has the most job offerings with 33 vacancies, followed by Fort Lauderdale, one of the largest agencies in the county, with 16 job openings. Negotiations for salary increases has boosted starting pay levels in underpaid cities, bringing them in line with other agencies. Fernandez says more intensive recruitments efforts

will include bus benches, banners, and radio and TV advertisements. So be on the look out, because Broward Police wants you.

Top 5

01. Das Is Good

TOP Five BROWARD BAKERIES

The German Bread Haus is perhaps the only pure ‘bakery’ in Broward, with no espresso bar or café seating. It occupies a tiny pink, peak-roofed Hansel and Gretel house, where everything is baked in small batches with organic grains. Inventive muffins (pistachio!), great coconut macaroons, tasty pastries (sesame!), but above all wonderful multi-grained breads (Kosher, too) baked daily. German Bread Haus Inc., 311 E. Commercial Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954.491.4464

02. C’est Fantastique! Broward has hundreds of bakeries, but most are buried in supermarkets or ensconced in coffee houses or restaurants. We went after bakeries that were primarily bakeries— shops devoted to their art, places where people come to buy their daily bread, as well as pastries, cookies, pies and muffins. While many serve coffee and sandwiches to supplement their income, these are shrines to the art of baking delicious things.

Croissan’Time is smart, bright and full of French baked goods: Breads, pastries, cream puffs, cakes, cookies, tortes, turnovers and of course, croissants, which are delicate, fresh and buttery. You can sit inside or out front in a small brick alcove. They also have French cheeses and hard sausages, the better to go with their baguettes—and great French coffee. Croissan’Time, 1201 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, 954.565.8555

03.Take the Canolli… please No one beats Pan’e Dolci for Italian baked goods: Lots of little pastries (tiny samplers, too), a great coffee machine and excellent breads. Feels very authentic. There’s seating inside and out if you can’t wait to eat the best cannoli in Broward. Their best seller—the shell-shaped sfogliatelle, with a powdered sugar, crunchy outside and soft lemon inside—is heavenly. Pan’e Dolci Italian Bakery, 3341 Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954.564.7871

04. South American Sweetness Crocante is a lovely place to sit, in a curved building opposite a large fountain. They also sell sandwiches, quiches and salads, so customers roost here. But it’s the baked Argentine and Venezuelan goodies that sing. Their best-selling balcarce, a puffball filled with dulce de leche (think caramel) and cream is delicious. Also great lemon pies, fruit tarts and flan cheese cake. Crocante Gourmet Bakery, 2708 N. University Drive, Coral Springs, 954.341.4416

05. Know thy Chocolate Euro Bread & Café is a provincial-style French café with a loyal clientele that cleans out the fresh baguettes daily—for good reason. They use no preservatives, and everything is baked on the premises. Of course there are Napoleons, apple turnovers and blueberry tarts, but their use of chocolate is sublime—the ‘trianon’ or triple-chocolate mousse is a religious experience.

Best Bets Arts Ballet Theatre – Pentimento & Firebird Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida leaps into its 16th season with two classic 20th Century masterpieces of imagination, Pentimento and Firebird. Pentimento, created by Venezuelan choreographer Vicente Nebrada, is a bold, abstract work based on ‘pentimento’—when a painter changes the composition during the process. The ballet uses masks, flowing fabric, lighting and movement to convey this to music by Bach. Firebird is set to Stravinsky’s brilliant score that tells the tale of a magical firebird who helps a heroic prince rescue a beautiful princess. Gorgeous costumes by Jorge Gallardo, new sets by Jim Hammond and amazing backdrops by Elena Bondarenko. photo by JoeyG

Secret Broward

Not Just For Pilots Banyan Air Service not only maintains aircrafts at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, it has become part of a ‘destination spot’ with its Pilot Shop and the Jet Runway Café. By James Broida

n 1979, Don Campion started Banyan Air Service, offering maintenance to owners of small aircrafts at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Fast forward 34 years and Banyan Air Service has grown into a booming company, employing 170 and offering a variety of aviation services, including aircraft fuel and hangar space, aircraft sales, engine maintenance, avionics, parts sales—and a couple of unique side bars: The Banyan Pilot Shop and the Jet Runway Café. Even for non-aviators, the Banyan Pilot Shop is a special place. It has 5,000 square feet of all-things aviation—including charts, logs, manuals, aviator headphones and even a flight simulator. But it also has aviation gifts like flight jackets, children’s toys, airplane models, Garmin accessories and more. Visitors are entertained by propellers that jut from the walls, aviation artwork and authentic runway lighting. There is

even a full-size Gulfstream II fuselage in the store equipped with simulator software that visitors can ‘fly’ for free. “For anyone who loves aviation this store is the place to go,” says customer Carl Smithson. “I bring my 4-year old son with me and we always purchase something special. The last time we bought a small remote control plane that my son plays with constantly. After shopping at the store, we finish our visit to the airport with breakfast or lunch at Jet Runway Café.” Jet Runway Café is only steps away from both the Banyan FBO terminal building and the Banyan Pilot Shop. The restaurant, decorated with polished jet engine parts, is right on the tarmac and offers a view of incoming and departing aircraft, as well as those being fueled or towed. While the Runway Café is a secret for most Broward residents—tucked away among the airport’s hangers—it has a dedicated clientele that crowd the place daily for great salads and

sandwiches, including the best tomato bisque and grilled cheese combo anywhere. “I have a cousin who has a plane here. That’s how I found out about the place,” says Lois Astern, a Coral Springs resident who works nearby. “The view, the food, the service… perfect.” “Having an amazing pilot shop and an incredible café on the airport has always been a dream of mine,” says Campion, whose charitable efforts include revitalizing a missionary hospital complex in eastern Nigeria and hosting an annual American Heart Association invitational golf tournament in nearby Tamarac. “Banyan is truly a blessed company and our success allows us to be able to give back to the community.” Q

FASHION

Tour de Force Sawgrass Mills promotes its high-end Colonnade Outlets with a fashion bash featuring one of TV’s fashion elite By JP FABER

all it another sign of the fashion times, wherein South Florida raises it’s profile on the fashion map: This month Sawgrass Mills will hold Tour de Fashion, a shopping event hosted by George Kotsiopoulos of E! Network’s Fashion Police. Already the largest outlet and ‘value retail’ shopping destination in the U.S., Sawgrass Mills is upping the ante with an expansion of its hautebrand Colonnade Outlets. The latest additions include outlets for Armani, Diane von Furstenberg, Gucci, Ippolita, Prada, Robert Graham, Roberto Cavalli, Versace and Wolford. “Why am I coming?” asks Kotsiopoulos, a veteran fashion stylist who has helped stars like Anne Hathaway, Courtney Cox, Eva Mendez and Zooey Descahnel get it right. “Well first, they invited me—but then they have all these great highend stores. I think Sawgrass Mills is the largest [outlet mall] anywhere. There’s tons of fashion there.” As for our region fashion-wise, South Florida is “very international,” says Kotsiopoulos, “which brings an air of sophistication.” And then there is the weather. “Anyplace that has a warm climate is always interesting. It’s both easier and harder to be

fashionable. It’s especially easy for a woman, but not so much for a man… I pity the man who has to walk around [South Florida] in a business suit, even a summer weight business suit.” Kotsiopoulous, who began his career with nearly a decade as a New York Times fashion editor, is coming out with his first book in January. “Glamorous by George” will offer advice for looking fashionable— and finding your ideal style—on a reasonable budget. That philosophy fits in perfectly with Sawgrass Mills, he says, which offers designer labels at reduced prices. “Not everyone can afford to shop on Rodeo Drive,” says Kotsiopoulous. “I don’t like to pay full ull price for anything. I’d rather not and I usually don’t. I think it’s fine for the die-hard fashionistas and certain in [wealthy] women. But that’s the onee percent.” As for the rest of us, Kotsiopoulous otsiopoulous advises to ignore the dictates of fashion trends. “My book is the about the lack of trends. Nothing hing is really new. The last 20 years off fashion has been a rehash of the last 90 years. “You can say, ‘Oh, that’s hat’s so two years ago.’ But somethingg from Prada two years ago is still fabulous… bulous… It’s really whatever looks good on your body. Wear what looks

good.” And that is what Tour de Fashion, and the Collonade Outlets, is all about: Making fashion accessible. “We all want new things [but] no one should go into debt for it.” Q QE! Networks’ George Kotsiopoulous (below) will guest host Tour de Fashion: An Indulgence in Shopping, Mojitos and More, at the Collonades Outlets on Friday, Oct. 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets range from $30 to $75. All proceeds go to charity. Guests will enjoy runway shows, refreshments, complimentary swag bags and more. WSVN News Anchor Belkys Nerey will co-host.

real estate

Q&A Terry Stiles: A View from the Top Terry Stiles has been Broward’s iconic builder-developer for decades, responsible for 7 million square feet in downtown Fort Lauderdale alone. Here is his take on surviving the recession and what’s up for local real estate in the next few years.

Q First, how did you survive the post-2007 real estate collapse? A We’ve been fairly good at watching the curves of real estate in terms of the different product types, what’s hot and what’s not. About five years ago we saw the writing on the wall, so we started going after public projects. We built the City of Sunrise safety complex, the Broward County Courthouse garage and a half million square feet at Miami International Airport… We’ve also become one of the top two companies [in the U.S.] building auto dealerships… we’ve built more than 100 across the country.

A I think for the next 2 to 3 years things are going to be really good. The multifamily area is on fire, and already people are talking about a bubble…

Q What about residential and commercial buildings, which were your former strengths? A About four years ago we started focusing on multifamily projects. We finished a 321-unit project in Plantation, with another 312-unit project under development in Naples. We’ve also built a number of Publix supermarkets in South Florida, and are building more of them in North Carolina…

Q A

Q What was the hardest thing about the downturn for you? A We trimmed back probably 100 associates… I had to layoff guys who had worked for me for 20 years. That was tough. Now I’m hiring them back… Q 36

Terry Stiles, Chairman & CEO

What’s the prognosis for Broward real estate?

OCTOBER 2013 | LMGFL.COM

Q A

What’s driving the demand for real estate? We have a bunch of things that are pumping money into our economy, and these are creating demand for multifamily housing and creating jobs… for example, the airport is spending $1 billion on new construction, with another $1 billion being spent to finish I-595, and another $1 billion going into improvements at the port… these things are going to help. Any specific predictions about the future? I predict that the convention center will be rebuilt. I think there is the political will there to rebuild, and this will enhance our hotels… We are now seeing Fort Lauderdale growing as an international destination, and you’re seeing hotels flags like Hilton, the W and the Ritz that reflect this already.

Q A

What about for Stiles? We bought into the old French Quarter [on Las Olas] and we’ll be building the highest-end rental apartment building in the city, very contemporary and unique, with 265 units… We have another multifamily project in Plantation, on Peters Road… We also believe there is room for a new office tower downtown, and we’re planning a $150 million office, retail and residential project at Sunrise and the Sawgrass.

BUSINESS

Nipro Diagnostics’ President & CEO Scott Verner

Building a Business, One Strip at a Time Nipro Diagnostics is a sign of the times, as high-tech manufacturing in Broward continues to grow By Jeff Zbar

cott Verner is walking through his Fort Lauderdale factory, where big machines fill the space and their loud hum fills the air. But people are few. He seems to prefer it this way. Verner likes that the number of people needed to turn out product at Nipro Diagnostics has been halved, again and again. It’s gotten to the point that two people— operating two robotic machines that stand over seven feet tall and wind their way across an immaculate workplace— can turn out a billion diabetes test strips a year. It once took two-dozen people to do this job (the other 10 were reassigned within the company). But by designing its own machines—code named “Marlon” and “Whale” during R&D—to layer inks and precious metals that can read glucose levels, two workers can produce innumerable strips with laser-scanned precision. “Variability is a killer,” says Verner, the company’s president and CEO. And there’s no variability at Nipro Diagnostics unless, of course, growth is variability. Some two million people test their blood sugar up to four times daily with strips from this factory, along with meters designed by engineers in one of the company’s seven buildings surrounding Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Some know Nipro’s products under the True brand; others buy the meters and strips as store brands at

CVS, Walgreens and Duane Reed. Verner and Nipro are emblematic of what is happening to U.S. and Florida manufacturing. While jobs have fallen since the onset of the Great Recession, manufacturing itself is growing, thanks to innovations in technology. “Manufacturing jobs in Florida have gone from 1 million to 350,000 since the 1990s, but it’s not all bad news,” says June Wolfe, president of the South Florida Manufacturer’s Association. “Because of technology and productivity, manufacturing is making a return… it’s not dying, but changing from people to machines, from brawn to brain.” Nirpo’s performance earned the company the 2011 Manufacturer of the Year and South Florida Manufacturer of the Year awards from the state Manufacturers Association. For CEO Verner, the company’s success has crowned a career that seemed tailored for the job. After an internship with Procter & Gamble, and a stop at Lego, Verner joined pharmaceutical giants Ciba Geigy/ Novartis and later Allergan, Because of technology and the makers of Botox. As corporate vice president productivity, manufacturing is at a joint venture of Radius making a return… it’s not dying, Ventures, Bain Capital but changing from people to Ventures, Johns Hopkins machines, from brawn to brain. and Eli Lilly called Eyetel, he then helped develop technologies to treat diabetes and micro-vascular disease. In 2007, he was named senior vice president at Nipro. A 2010 housecleaning elevated him to president and CEO. Success in business, says Verner, is just about smart decision making, brain vs. brawn. Even Nipro’s location by the airport was calculated, central for its 400 employees to commute throughout South Florida. More importantly, should power go down in a storm, Verner knows that airports—and those lucky or smart enough to be nearby— are among the first back online. Active in the community and with area high schoolers, Verner hopes the next generation will pick up a few lessons of its own. That includes his own kids. “I always tell my kids,” he says, “to be smart enough to make your own decisions.” Q

No Surrender Coconut Creek Mayor Becky Tooley refuses to retreat from life in her personal—and public— battle with breast cancer By Kristan Ashworth

orking a full-time job can be demanding enough, but when you’re also the mayor of a city, the coach of a girl’s softball team, a mentor to a local student and serve on the boards of numerous community organizations, you take devotion to your community to a whole new level. Coconut Creek’s own Mayor Becky Tooley has taken on all of the above and more. But in March of this year she was thrown a curve ball that not only challenged her ability to juggle everything that’s important to her, but changed her life forever. It started with the discovery of a lump in her breast. “I had a routine mammogram 11 months prior and everything was fine,” recalls Becky. “Then one day during a self breast exam I found a lump.” She knew her next step would be to receive another mammogram. Given her profession as a Radiologic Technologist, Becky was familiar with reading this diagnostic test and knew the results the moment she saw it. She hoped she was wrong. But after seven biopsies, it was confirmed that the lump she had found, which was the size of a golf ball, was indeed cancerous. Becky was diagnosed with an aggressive form of stage-2 ductal carcinoma. With no family history of breast cancer, she was blindsided. As with all cancers, early detection and treatment is key. Receiving the diagnosis in April, she had a lumpectomy, and began chemotherapy near the end of May. Becky just started radiation in September. Through the past seven months of surgery and treatments, Becky continued to work both jobs and didn’t miss a day. “It is what it is and I have to do what I have to do,” she says with confidence. Of course she’s had days when she felt sick from the chemo and radiation and had to deal with losing her hair, but Becky says she was raised to make the best of a bad situation. “Losing my hair didn’t bother me because people would ask me what kind of cancer I had and that

would give me an opportunity to explain the importance of self-examination,” she says. Becky has been very open about her story for that exact reason: Turning something bad into something good by educating others on the importance early detection. She’s always happy to speak to media outlets about breast cancer, and she’s in the process of making a video to share her story. Becky also hopes to start a buddy program that will encourage women to remind friends and loved ones to perform regular selfexaminations. By Becky’s side through it all has been her husband of 26 years, Frank, a retired New York Policeman. Becky’s been on the City Commission since 2001, so the city employees who adore her have rallied in support as well. Becky coaches the Coconut Creek Crush Softball team, whose players have been among her biggest supporters. “I couldn’t fight this without them,” she says. The girls on the team give plenty of credit to Becky as well, e , for o all a of o her e encouragement. e cou age e t And d it’s t s not ot just the team that Becky has been there for. She’s been mentoring students for over 10 years and was named “Mentor of the Year” in 2012. She was also recognized that year by the Aging & Disability Resource Center, receiving the honor of induction into the Dr. Nan S. Hutchison Broward Senior Hall of Fame. With so many young women in her life as students and athletes, it was a shock to Becky for her to see how many young women where getting chemotherapy for breast cancer alongside her. That makes Becky’s mission of educating women of all ages even more important to her. “The greatest advice I can give is to perform a selfexamination every month and get a mammogram once a year,” she stresses. Becky continues to work hard and not miss a beat as her treatment progresses, and her spirit is admirable. “I have always thought that it’s the little things that mean the most in life. Through this all I have tried to eat better, laugh more and have a positive attitude. I am a caring person and I will continue to fight for what I believe is right.” “Becky has been an inspiration to all of us,” says Coconut Creek City Manager Mary Blasi. “Her courage, and concern and love for others—even through grueling treatment—will never be forgotten.” Q

How does

your city rank? Our First Annual Look At the Statistics of Lifestyles in Broward There is no “Best City” because we each look for something different. Some of us might be looking for the sexiest city with the best dining and cultural flair, while others might be looking for that traditional hometown feel with the best schools and room to breathe fresh air. Still others look for that nice little niche in the middle with a little bit of everything, while still being within moderate travel time to work and play. Whether you have a competitive Type A personality or a more leisurely Type B personality, everyone is always curious about how their community stacks up against the others. We took a look at 10 cities within Broward County and ranked them on several criteria including schools, population density, crime rate, property tax rates, dining and cultural venues.

We have a good city commission that is branding the new look of the city, upgrading the medians and the streets and rebuilding city hall.

Fort Lauderdale The largest city in Broward County, Fort Lauderdale is a place of work and play. Many residents work within the city limits, where dining ranges from Mom & Pops to worldclass cuisine. The same can be said for the cultural side. There are multiple venues for performing and visual arts, museums and botanical gardens, and at night there’s an army of bars, pubs, clubs and live music. While crime remains a concern, Fort Lauderdale is a bustling city with property values on the rise and the lowest property taxes, despite its size. It is currently focusing its redevelopment efforts on some of its more rundown areas.

Mayor Jack Seiler, What Makes Fort Lauderdale a Great City to Live In? “Fort Lauderdale is the most convenient city anywhere,” says Mayor Jack Seiler. “It’s a city where you can get to great restaurants, great cultural amenities

and entertainment, and the airport and seaport, all in a matter of minutes. You can also be on the New River one minute and on the ocean the next.” What impresses Mayor Seiler even more are the residents. “We have the United Nations here, and we don’t care if you are gay or straight, rich or poor, white or black, Jewish or Christian,” says Mayor Seiler. “It’s a unique blend of people who want to move the city forward, and who get along.” While there are some ‘urban blocks’ in Fort Lauderdale, there are also elegant avenues for fine dining, shopping and entertainment. “I think we have the right balance of everything,” says Mayor Seiler. “Fort Lauderdale is the best place to live, visit, play, work and raise a family. Some have just the work element, or just the residential. We have it all.”

Plantation Plantation sets the standard for a traditional community. One of the larger cities in Broward, it still focuses on events like its Thanksgiving Parade and its Annual Firefighters Barbeque. A pack of other food and art events speckle the community’s hometown calendar. The city holds it own in dining and shopping, ranks better than average for open space, yet remains within a short commute to work for many of its residents. While Plantation does have a limited arts and entertainment venues, what it does have is unique—including the Junior Orange Bowl USTA tennis tournament, now in its third year at the Frank Veltri tennis center.

“The grass is greener in Plantation,” says Mayor Diane Veltri Bendekovic. “We have 654 acres of open space, word class parks and recreation amenities, from horse riding to pools to tennis courts… anything you could want as a family.” Mayor Bendekovic, who has lived in Plantation for 60 years, is most concerned with creating a hometown atmosphere that will retain residents and their children. “Families come back here. I call it the regeneration of plantation. You grow up here and you come back here to raise your family.” Enhancing the hometown feeling is a plethora of hometown events—a local 4th of July celebration, an annual firefighters barbecue, a Thanksgiving holiday parade, and lots of public art and food events. “Traditions are what make memories here,” she says. The city is also proud of the jobs available in its technology and commercial parks, and through the redevelopment of its central business corridors. And there is no loss of pride in the Junior Orange Bowl USTA tennis tournament.

Coral Springs One of the larger municipalities in Broward County, Coral Springs is among the safest cities. It is a fast-growing community that has struck a balance between rising residential property values and a low property tax. The city averages well for both education and work commute time, and it doesn’t lack for entertainment or dining with a diverse mix of shopping and restaurants within the community. The Coral Spring’s Commission has also been taking large steps to upgrade the look and feel of the community. They have already done significant public landscaping, improved law enforcement and a have a new City Hall planned.

special in all the assets we have,” says Mayor Vince Boccard. “The schools are all highly rated, we have great parks, we have beautiful neighborhoods, a low crime rate and good sports teams.” Just as important is what’s happening right now: An ‘upgrade’ of the city, which includes significant public landscaping, better code enforcements, improved law enforcement, a new City Hall on the drawing board and a re-branding of everything from police uniforms to signage. “We want a fresh, new, clean progressive look,” says Mayor Boccard. “We have a good city commission that is branding the new look of the city, upgrading the medians and the streets and rebuilding city hall.” The immediate consequence? “The property values are going up—houses are on the market for only a couple of days now,” says Mayor Boccard. The longer term? “We are trying to recapture the kids who have gone off to college. We want them to come back to Coral Springs.”

Parkland Parkland is pure residential enclave. It’s a community set aside from the hubbub of the county, content to focus on raising families in a protected environment. It’s ranked number one for safety and the best schools, according to FCAT scores. The city has little commercial development and does not have a large selection of restaurants or shops, because that’s the way it wants it. “The commute from here is a little bit longer. Our residents are more than willing to trade that off for great education, low crime and great recreational facilities,” says Mayor Michael Udine. “Parkland is a great place to be.” Mayor Michael Udine, What Makes Parkland a Great City to Live In? First and foremost, says Mayor Michael Udine, Parkland is a city

obsessed with the education of its children. With the highest FCAT score in the county, the effort shows. “We take tremendous pride in working with our schools,” says Mayor Udine. “We work with Douglas High and provide and SAT boot camp free for our residents… When we have a new development, we pretty much insist going above and beyond what they [normally are required to do] in terms of education. We request developers to donate land for schools. We try to make our schools top of the game.” Parkland also prides itself on the fact that it has very little commercial development—it comes in at the bottom for things like restaurants, shopping or cultural institutions. But that is just how they want it. “We fought at the time to make sure University Drive didn’t go through the city. We want to be a [final, home] destination, not a drive through.”

government here and three, it’s the way we position our community.” As for its people, says Mayor Stermer, “We are a diverse community, in terms of where we come from, and that is reflected in the restaurants and in the shops. People are from all over the world, and that gives Weston flair and makes it attractive.” The government is a ‘contract’ style, with only 9 employees and everything else outsourced. This includes police, fire, landscape, public works, the building department—everything beyond the city manager and his staff. The result: No pensions and no deficits. In terms of positioning, says Mayor Stermer, that means sufficient funds for public landscaping and recreational facilities, resulting in manicured roadways and sports fields galore. Having top schools with heavy parental involvement doesn’t hurt, either.

Davie> Rankings Open Space: #3 School Scores: #3 Low Crime: #6 Easy Commute: #4 Rising Prop Value: #7 Low Tax Rate: #5 Restaurants: #4 Retail Shops: #4 Arts & Ent: #4

Davie Davie is the biggest small town in Broward, whose strong suit is maintaining pastoral open spaces while still showing a significant increase in residential property value. Once a very rural area, Davie has tried to retain its rustic identity. The city is also a bastion of education, high in rankings for school testing and home to numerous higher education institutions. It also has a multitude of dining and shopping options, as well as arts and entertainment venues within the city. With 883 acres of city parks and 928 acres of county parks, Davie proves itself as a city trying to keep a pastoral, small town feel.

Mayor Judy Paul, What Makes Davie a Great City to Live In? Diversity, for one, says Mayor Judy Paul. “We have 36 square miles, the largest land mass community in Broward, and we go from mega yachts (on Marina Mile) to horse ranches, so we have a variety of modes of transportation.” Once very rural, Davie has tried to maintain that feeling. “We keep the name as a town, because it’s a state of mind. We want to maintain a rural setting inside of an urban area,” says Mayor Paul. “We pride ourselves on having parks in all our neighborhoods, which is good for having young children.”

‘Hopefully In 15 Years they Come Back’ Broward County’s coastline is a popular destination for sea turtles looking to build nests, but the beach can be a dangerous place for them—and their young By Gideon Grudo Photography by Christine Capozziello

ark Ranger Dave Jackson is about to dig up baby turtles and count shells. He looks up to see if everyone’s paying attention. Jackson’s accent is heavily Caribbean; he chuckles and explains that he’s from Georgia. He has just removed a grid of metal wiring and the spokes that held it down, the cover for a sea turtle nest laid months earlier—park rangers scan the beaches at night for turtles nesting and set up barricades around the nests to protect them. When they hatch it’s time for Jackson—who’s been doing this for 25 years—to take a closer look. “Here we go,” says Jackson, his boots sinking into the sands of Dania Beach’s John U. Lloyd State Park. He locks his hand into the shape of a tractor shovel, cocks his arm, and blasts this human crane into the ground. Within seconds, the hole he’s digging is a foot in diameter and two feet deep. Then the eggs start coming, Jackson grabbing a few with each dip into the sand. Some of the eggs are white and cracked, translating as successful births. Some are yellow-green and deformed, meaning unfertilized eggs. And then comes the icing— little sea turtle hatchlings who made it out of their shells

P

but got otherwise trapped or overburdened in the sand. “He can spot a turtle a mile away,” says Carmelo Duessler proudly about Jackson. Duessler, a state park services specialist, is Jackson’s boss. He’s been doing this for 37 years and retires in two-and-a-half. Jackson is working on nest 110. One of the spokes he pulled out earlier was etched with “110” to mark the number of nests spotted so far this season at John U. Lloyd. Being at 110 nests after the season’s peak (in July) is not ideal, but it’s not that bad, either. Last year was fantastic with 308 nests, but most seasons see less than 200. As Jackson takes out each little turtle, he places them gently on the sand and returns to his hole, looking for more. The baby animal flutters its flippers wildly and begins its trek to the ocean’s edge. There’s no nudging or pushing coming from Jackson. It’s “always a good idea to let them out far up,” Jackson says. This way, they build up strength getting into the ocean, strength they’ll need to survive. Seagulls appear ten or twenty yards down the beach, but Jackson says they can’t be harried. They deserve as LMGFL.COM | OCTOBER 2013

Carmelo Duessler, park services specialist and Jackson’s boss, looks on. Below Left: After digging a hole into the nest by hand, Jackson begins removing eggs. Some are broken, meaning they hatched successfully. Some are discolored, meaning they are unfertilized. Nest 110 yielded 112 broken shells (hatched!) and just seven unfertilized ones. Below RIGHT: In the nest, some straggling sea turtle hatchlings have survived the night by breathing through air pockets in the sand. Here, Duessler gets them on their feet in the direction of the ocean.

According to Florida park specialist Carmelo Duessler, only one in 1,000 hatchlings will make it to adulthood. If they survive, they may return in 15 or 16 years to lay eggs of their own.

much respect as the turtles, and if they choose to snatch one, well, “you don’t get second chances in nature,” says Jackson. Duessler says studies estimate about only one in 1,000 turtles will reach adulthood, which takes 15 or 16 years. Those who make it will hopefully come back to nest here in South Florida. Nest 110 is on top of a mini levy, maybe five feet up a narrow stretch of beach. It’s narrow because of erosion. The park’s northern neighbor, Port Everglades, has a jetty that blocks sand from drifting to it and thus inhibits the coastline’s ability to replenish. That’s just one of the issues facing sea turtles that arrive to build nests. “If we were in a perfect world, there’d be no jetty,” Duessler says, squinting from the morning sun and pointing at the stretch of sea where ships leave for their commercial endeavors. “[The beach] is eroding away and nothing’s coming back to take its place.” The nesting season starts in March and ends on Halloween every year, making this the last month hatchlings will be crawling their way to the ocean. If 110 nests have made it thus far, chances are that another 100 or so turtles arrived but decided not to lay eggs, for a multitude of

possible reasons. It’s called a “false crawl,” and Lifestyle turned to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to figure out why it happens. The FWC is an arm of the state’s Fish and Wildlife Service, responsible for “conservation and recovery efforts”—everything from counting and rehabilitating sea turtles to conducting sea turtle research and educational programs about the hard-shelled reptiles. FWC environmental specialist Meghan Koperski says that false crawls happen because of thinner beach width, a higher water table (the level of the water under the beach), sand composition, beach furniture, jet skis, tents, lights, etc. Building a home or structure adjacent to the beach does not necessarily hinder any egg laying, but hardening the shoreline—with seawalls, for example—does. About 50 percent of all sea turtles who arrive at a beach are likely to leave without nesting. “If there’s no sand on the beach that’s dry all the time, those nests won’t incubate,” says Koperski, who’s been working with turtles since 1996. “Having a good beach is very important for sea turtles.”


Below : On their way to the ocean, the hatchlings will build up some of the necessary strength needed to make it on their own. That’s why it’s important not to just take them to the water or otherwise assist them in their journey. Once the hatchlings make it to the edge of the ocean, they just need a wave to swoop in and — whoosh! — they’re off to a whole new part of their adventure.

Helping to Keep Florida’s Beaches Turtle Friendly QHere are some tips from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) expert Meghan Koperski on how to make our beaches more suited for sea turtles. Remember, she says: You’re sharing the beach with your neighbor humans, but also with turtles and other animals. Treat them like friends and respect their home.

Dave Jackson (left) and Carmelo Duessler (right)

Broward’s turtles have probably been nesting here for hundreds, possibly thousands of years, Koperski points out. The process has been going on since the age of dinosaurs. “We’re very lucky that this process occurs here. Folks in the panhandle are mighty jealous of folks in South Florida,” she says. Jealous or not, no one really knows why sea turtles love South Florida’s coast so much. While turtles are known to hatch on beaches stretching from Virginia to the Keys and up the Gulf coast all the way to Texas, our coastline is by far the most popular. Turtles that nest on Broward County beaches may forage in the Bahamas, the Keys, or elsewhere, but they all end up here—though how they find their way is another puzzle. Theoretically, turtles use geo-magnetic fields (the same way birds find their direction when migrating), but scientists still don’t understand how they use these. For all their mystery, sea turtles fall for some pretty simple trickery. Pointing at the harbor master’s building, visible from his office in the park, Duessler says that at night the “loud” lights attract both nesting turtles themselves, and later their hatchlings. Both the turtles and hatchlings sometimes get as far as the handful of trailers that make up the park’s offices and die there. Even though the park has a “coastal strand,”

or a line of trees that acts as a light barrier for the beach, some glow makes it through. And if those lights don’t confuse the turtles, then skyglow— reflecting from nearby residential or commercial areas—will. Duessler, whose hands are calloused from decades of beach work, lowers his otherwise peppy voice when he talks about the harbor master’s building, the coastal strand and the skyglow: “There’s just nothing you can do about that.” Jackson, meanwhile, has finished ‘evaluating’ nest 110. The result: 112 broken eggs (hatchlings!) and only seven failed ones. “It’s over 90 percent,” Duessler says. “A fantastic hatch. Very nice.” Jackson, who retires later this year, starts filling up the hole with sand. He’ll evaluate another five or six nests before going home. “It brings a smile to your face,” he says. “Every hatch is beautiful.” Jackson’s house in Jamaica is just waiting for his retirement. Duessler admits it’ll be hard to find a ranger as efficient as Jackson, who often finds nests that other rangers dismiss as false crawls. As he turns to leave the beach, Duessler steps down closer to the water and points at a fresh set of tracks leading to a new nest. “It’s always good to see two sets of tracks. That way you know she got back out,” he says. Q

» Make sure you flatten any sand castle you build or fill in any holes you dig—both hamper sea turtles crawling to and from the sea. » Pick up any trash you or someone else leaves. Debris can entangle nests, turtles, and, of course, other marine life. » Brought something to the beach? Likewise, take it home. It’ll keep things like umbrellas from damaging turtles. » Out on the beach at night and see a beach turtle? Don’t flash your light on it, meaning don’t try to post it on Instagram or Facebook. » Recycle your monofilament (fishing line). Entanglements cause the highest number of stranded animals that the FWC encounters. » Support FWC by buying sea turtle license plates (buyaplate.com). » Get involved as a Sea Turtle Oversight Protection volunteer.

There’s a magic that will capture your heart while dining in this neighborhood restaurant.

La Rural Steakhouse A Neighborhood Argentine Grill At its Best By Randi Aileen Press, Dining Duchess™

a Rural is the kind of place you would find in a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, or maybe Mendoza. Relaxed, family-owned and unpretentious, it offers a warm ambiance along with topnotch meats, good red wine and some true Argentine comfort foods. La Rural feels authentic because it is. Managed and owned by Eduardo O’Toole and his family, it started as a grocery store selling beef and Argentinian products with a solo table in the back. Once customers experienced the diverse selection of food choices and Argentinian wines, the demand created an opportunity for a full-service restaurant. There’s a magic that will capture your heart while dining in this neighborhood restaurant. The inside seating area runs along a handsome bar with wooden tables and chairs; the colors are warm touches of amber and soft red, with painted bricks and a few murals that make the experience casual and charming. Outside patio seating puts you on a small lake, where you can enjoy the beauty of a Florida afternoon or evening while sipping a glass of Argentine merlot or cabernet. The list of choices is extensive but no worries, the bread is delicious while you negotiate your wine selection. At La Rural you quickly learn to love Argentinean empanadas. Theirs are exceptional: Light, flaky and tasty, they come from the “Salta” province. Each empanada is filled with beef, chicken, ham & cheese or spinach. Also try the Tablita appetizer. It will give you bona fide opportunity to savor a variety of Argentine items that deserve a taste. Included are blood sausage, sweetbread, half pinwheel sausage, grilled peppers, marinated artichokes hearts and our favorite, cured pork sausage (a.k.a. Corizo Argentino). Other assorted goodies aside, Argentine dining prides itself on beef (their vast rural Pampas is cattle country,

L

after all). True to form, La Rural’s grilling emphasizes the technique of Asado, which literally means roasted. Beef is grilled slowly until it’s perfect. La Rural has premium cuts of certified Black Angus Beef that include: New York Steak, Rib Eye, Filet Mignon, Beef Short Rib, Outside Skirt and more. The filet, cooked juicy and rare, is wrapped in bacon and served in a light mushroom sauce. The Rib Eye and New York Strip Steak are both incredibly tender and flavorful, served lightly surrounded by their own juice. Both are worthy of your order. If you’re not a beefeater, La Rural has a special chicken dish for you, the Milanese de carne o pollo—breaded chicken breast with two fried eggs on top—a tasty and authentic Argentine meal. Side dishes include Russian potato salad, sweet potato fries, white rice and steamed vegetables. Dessert is sophisticated and also authentic at La Rural. Try their pear soaked in Malbec wine; the ripe pear takes on a deeply colored hue and has a juiciness that is rich with an almost velvety texture, served with vanilla ice cream. The apple flambé and the crêpe filled with Dulce de leche are two more sweet options to enjoy if the pear doesn’t entice you. These tempting desserts are all homemade in La Rural’s kitchen.

Local Travel

A Weekend in Urban Paradise Downtown Delray is a model for the new urbanism, with a pedestrian-vibrant main street, a slew of sophisticated cuisine, a culture of street-side cafés and live music, and a fabric of vintage architecture.

On the Avenue: Atalntic Avenue in ‘old’ Delray is alive with cafés and pedestrians.

By James Broida

t was Friday night after dinner at Max’s Harvest, a local bastion of nouvelle American cuisine, when we decided we needed some really good live music. Fortunately the Arts Garage was a two-block walk away, and there was still a table available. We listened to pianist Kenny Drew, Jr. blaze on stage with his jazz trio; we could have been in New York’s West Village. Afterwards we walked along Atlantic Avenue,

This is not your and trendy. grandfather’s Delray Beach—though it somehow is, in a unique blend of traditional and trendy. Delray pulls this off like an exercise in The New Urbanism, linking its downtown to its arts district, preserving what’s left of the past and populating it with the new—including new residents in smart, human-scale condo and apartment buildings. No place is more emblematic of this transformation than Sundy House, a restored Victorian mansion that was home to the city’s first mayor, John Sundy. We spent the first night

of our weekend in Delray Beach here, in this delicious, intimate hotel. Sundy is like a cross between the Stranahan House in Fort Lauderdale and Key West’s Hemingway House—except here you get to sleep, eat and drink, as well as swim in a tropical garden. Like the town itself, the 1902 Sundy House has been restored and enhanced, and is now a blend of boutique hotel, botanical garden and favorite local restaurantwatering hole. It has just 12 guest accommodations—cottage-like townhouses nestled in a stunningly diverse 1.25-acre garden, planted 15 years ago when the Sundy opened as a restaurant. “There was nothing here but the house and a parking lot,” says Richard Wilson, the landscape architect who filled the grounds with rare Asian species and fruit-bearing trees. About 10 years ago a 9-foot-deep ‘cenote’ pool was added—a kind of natural water hole where you can swim with the fish, literally. In addition to the cottage ‘villas’ (each with uniquely themed murals), the Sundy is also a favorite local bar and restaurant, with three rooms and tables set out in the garden area. Chef Lindsay Autry blends Mediterranean flavors with French techniques, and is a wizard with fish—I ate a cobia on ‘dirty’ rice that was exquisite, while my date’s sausage-pasta a la New Orleans was equally superb. If you have to leave the oasis of the Sundy, Delray’s main Atlantic Avenue has no shortage of cafes and bars, some raucous with music (rock bands

play outside at Johnnie Brown’s) others quieter, like the Tavern on the Park or Rack’s Fish House, both on a pocket park at 2nd Ave. Two blocks north of Atlantic is Pineapple Grove, the arts district that’s home to Delray’s most sophisticated cuisine and music. A national-level new comer in

theater productions as well as weekend jazz and blues concerts held on stage in a room with tables for patrons to sit and drink what they bring. Top notch. Continuing east along Atlantic Avenue you arrive at AIA, where the city meets the beach. This short stretch of oceanfront was the center of Delray prior to the downtown’s gentrification. The gang’s still here, a cluster of restaurants that includes Boston’s, which hasn’t changed in decades, and is still home to blues, rock and reggae bands most nights. The anchor at this end of Delray is the venerable Marriott Beach Delray, an elegant building done in Spanish colonial style. It has a series of villas on AIA across from the ocean, and most rooms afford a nice view of the sea. Unlike the bohemian feel of Pineapple Grove and old downtown,

On the Beach: The Mariott on A1A is the place to stay if you want to hear the ocean.

The Grove—if two years is still new—is the American cuisine star Max’s Harvest.This trendy, popular spot (the latest from Dennis Max of Boca’s Max’s Grill) offers superb service, a warm ambiance and inventive cuisine focusing on local and seasonal produce. We sampled a lobster shepherd’s pie and a ribeye steak with fresh chimichurri. Both excellent, as were the flavorful heritage meatballs and truffle-deviled eggs appetizers. Nearby is the Arts Garage, where we heard our jazz trio. The Garage is an artists’ cooperative, presenting

however, the Mariott is formal and marble-floored, with its heavily columned, table-clothed restaurant on the main lobby. The Mariott is the place to stay if your aim is to climb out of bed and walk to the beach, where you can rent an umbrella and chairs to relax and listen to the ocean meet the shore. We did that during our last day in Delray, after starting out with cappuccinos and croissants at the oceanfront Rosa Luna café. It was a relaxing finale to a weekend spent in one of South Florida’s most entertaining and authentic small towns. Q LMGFL.COM | OCTOBER 2013

WHAT IS MY BUSINESS WORTH? ANDREW CAGNETTA Certified Business Intermediary CEO, Transworld Business Advisors Offices Nationwide 954-772-1122 www.tworld.com ac@tworld.com

I am often asked by business owners, “What is my business worth?” There are many reasons to value your business, and different values for any business. Do you want to know what a business is worth for legal reasons, such as divorce or partnership disputes? Are you looking for worth for IRS purposes, such as gifting or estate issues? You could be looking at a value dictated by valuation principles, the laws of your state or IRS code. The answer here, would be to call a valuation expert, with a lot of letters next to their name, and is not relevant to the following discussion about market value. If you are looking for a price that you think your business will sell for in the marketplace, that price can vary greatly, depending on who the buyer is. If the buyer is an independent person looking for a new career, they are considered a regular buyer. If however, they have other reasons to buy your business, based on economies of scale or competitive issues, they could be a strategic buyer. We will talk about strategic buyers next time. For example, if you have a regular “Joe or Jane” buyer, you could be looking at a price that resembles

fair market value. In my world, with very few exceptions, your business market value is driven by the income of the business. In other words... SHOW ME THE MONEY! In layman’s terms, market value is what a regular, independent buyer would pay for your business. Their sole motivation for buying your business is to have an income stream into the future. Therefore, if your business makes money, it would be worth a multiple of the current income. What is the multiple? One to five times current income….Why the large spread? Multiples are driven by the quality and quantity of the earnings. What is quantity of earnings? If a business earns over a million dollars, it is inherently less risky than one that earns a hundred thousand. For example, if you buy a business that earns one million dollars, and make a 200,000 dollar mistake, you’re o.k. However, if you buy a business that earns 50,000 dollars, and make the same mistake...you’re done! So, at 50,000 dollars, it may be worth 1 to 2 times earnings, at a million dollars, it may be worth 4-5 times earnings. Businesses that earn more than a million dollars or more net income often attract strategic buyers; so let’s keep this to small businesses. What is quality of earnings? Quality

of earnings are the likelihood that they will happen again, and how believable are the earnings. Are the books and records up to date? Are the earnings reflected on the businesses tax returns? Are they easily identifiable, or are they buried in personal expenses? Once found, are the earnings going to continue? Is there a good and diverse customer base? Is the macro and micro future economy bright for this company? Are the earnings rising, flat or declining? What are the chances the buyer can learn or assume the skills that are required to continue to run the business? What assets are included in the sale (inventory, equipment, leasehold improvements, etc.)? The list goes on… To sum it up, your small business (less than a million dollars in earnings) is worth two to perhaps three times your owner benefit; your business earnings plus your owner’s salary and perks. Can it sell for more? Yes, but we’ll talk about that next time.

ERASE THE YEARS IN ONE 20 MINUTE TREATMENT! WITH OUR DEEP, FRACTIONAL CO2 MICRO-ABLATIVE LASER

The newest advances in Laser Technology have revolutionized “Gold Standard” CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing!! With another new technology Upgrade, we now offer “Multi-Pulse” a Deep CO2 Microablative laser that can safely and precisely remove outer layers of damaged skin and penetrate via millions of microthermal zones to reveal the underlying skin and create brand new skin which is softer, smoother and often dramatically, younger looking. It also stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath (called “Laser Skin Renewal”), for a dramatically youthful and beautiful appearance! This superlative skin resurfacing – rejuvenation procedure will reverse years of sun damage, wrinkles, scars and many other skin imperfections in just minutes. When compared to other forms of laser treatment, the new “Deep” CO2 micro ablative is the new “Gold Standard” for rapid and optimal enhancement in as littleas 1 treatment! Our patients, ranging in age from 13 to 81 say that “The micro ablation removes sun damaged skin and makes it fresher looking; the second part called “bulk heating” improves collagen and elastic fibers deep down that improve deep to moderate wrinkles”. It’s also great for removing all types of scars, safe anywhere on the face, body or hands and we are even using it on stretch marks. By fractioning the laser beam into microscopic beams, a specific portion of the skin is left unharmed, which is more conducive to healing. This fractional method enables cells

to begin healing within 24 hours and the comfortable downtime can be adjusted to fit your busy schedule for 3 to 7 days – versus two months with the original CO2 laser. “The new “Non-Surgical Laser Facelift or Eye Lift” can take years off a person’s appearance and give them better looking skin than someone many years younger,” noted Dr. Aguilera. Our other popular cosmetic procedures include Botox, Dysport and Dermal fillers to replenish the volume of fat loss and bone loss on the face. Fillers take care of the volume and folds while the laser takes care of the skin’s texture, tone and elasticity.

DO YOU HAVE AN OPTIMAL THYROID? THYROID HORMONE RESISTANCE IS MORE COMMON THAN PEOPLE REALIZE.

DR. KENNETH WOLINER Board Certified Family Physician 9325 Glades Road, Suite 104 Boca Raton, FL 33434 561-314-0950 holisticfamilymed.com

“I HAVE TRIED EVERY DIET KNOWN TO MAN (OR MOMS) THESE LAST FEW YEARS-TO NO AVAIL.” Alyson continued to tell me her story. “For example, this past summer, my best friend flew me to their home in Sonoma for an entire month. We ate nothing but organic everything, lean protein, I drank 150 ounce-plus of water a day and did a high intensity workout every morning mixing up interval training with boot camp at her gym. In exactly 30 days – I lost a grand total of THREE pounds. I didn’t even lose the initial ‘water weight’ everyone else loses.” I empathized, “It’s hard to stay motivated with minimal results.” “I’m willing to starve myself, if that would work. I even did two rounds of hCG. My wallet’s lighter, but that’s about it.” “The FDA recently published a website, www.fda.gov/hcgdiet, detailing how hCG diet products are illegal, and how restrictive diets such as that one can cause electrolyte disturbances,

an irregular heartbeat and are potentially fatal.” I continued, “But looking at your diet history, I don’t think the problem is one of eating too much.” “Dr. Woliner, what else could it be? I have a friend that blew up taking Abilify for her depression, and another while on Actos for diabetes, but I’m not on any medications.” “It’s true that many drugs have weight gain as a common side effect [1]. But there are other causes of weight gain. With your other symptoms of cold intolerance, fatigue, and constipation, I’m thinking that you have an untreated thyroid condition [2].” “I begged my other doctors to treat me for that, but they all said no.” “Some doctors focus too much on lab tests without considering the patient’s history and physical exam findings [3]. Thyroid hormone resistance is more common than people realize.” Alyson sat with a puzzled look on her face. “So, even if these doctors said my tests were normal, I might still have a thyroid problem? [4]” “The word ‘normal’ has many meanings. There is a difference between ‘common’ and ‘optimal’ [5]. Rather than using a range that includes people who are overweight and being treated for high cholesterol and other conditions, perhaps it would be better to use narrower ranges of persons who feel ‘dandy’ [6].”

“Does anyone even use that word anymore?” “My practice is built on patientto-patient referrals. Just liking my bedside manner is not enough to convince your friends to see me. You have to glow. So yes, I do plan on making you feel dandy.” After finishing Alyson’s physical exam, my staff used our Korr indirect calorimetry machine to measure her metabolic rate [7]. “You’re at ‘minus 20%’. That’s one of slowest metabolism’s I’ve ever seen!” “How do we fix that?” “I use a holistic approach that combines behavior changes, diet, exercise, supplements, and of course medications [8,9]. I prefer to use T3 based drugs as they have been shown to cause significantly more weight loss than T4 drugs such as Synthroid alone [10].” As I ramped up Alyson’s dose of thyroid medication, her fatigue and other symptoms began to resolve. To be on the safe side, I periodically rechecked her EKG and bone density, which remained normal [11]. “Dr. Woliner, your scale says I only lost 49 pounds, but at home, naked, I’m down 51!” Dr. Kenneth Woliner is a boardcertified family physician in private practice in Boca Raton.

AND ANOTHER THING

How to push an elephant through a keyhole Horses of a different color. More than one way to skin a cat. Pushing an elephant through a keyhole. Why is it that metaphors for paradigm shifts are always about animals? I don’t know, and I don’t really care. What I do care about is implementing and benefiting from this BRUCE TURKEL idea of looking at things differently and sharing those ideas with you. For example: everybody I know complains about travel. They don’t like going through security, they don’t like waiting in lines, and they don’t like feeling rushed. I travel almost every week, and I don’t mind it a bit. True, I don’t enjoy any of those situations, but I’ve learned how to eliminate most of the aggravation. When I thought about making travel less stressful, I realized I could control two of the most aggravating things. One was the discomfort and delays that come with schlepping heavy baggage. The solution? I simply stopped taking so much stuff. When you stop worrying about carrying everything but the kitchen sink, you also stop worrying about finding overhead luggage space, having TSA inspectors root through your stuff, waiting in interminable lines to pick up your luggage, and having your stuff stolen. The second issue was the stress that came from rushing and worrying about being late. Let’s say my flight was scheduled for 5 p.m. I’d figure I needed to be there an hour early, and it takes about

OCTOBER 2013 | LMGFL.COM

40 minutes to get to the airport and park, so I’d plan to leave my office at 3:20 or so. Needless to say, I’d only start leaving at 3:20, which meant I wouldn’t actually get into my car until 3:30 or 3:40, and I’d already feel rushed and stressed. Then if anything went wrong — traffic or a family of 18 ahead of me in security — my stress level would boil over and wouldn’t abate until I was on the plane and breathing heavily. No wonder people drink on flights. One day it dawned on me that if I left for the 5 p.m. flight at 1 p.m., I’d get to the airport with hours to spare. Then I could go through the TSA line without cursing the people in front of me for dumping their coin collections and silverware service into the X-ray tray. “But what do you do in the airport two hours early?” I hear you screaming. Simple. I go into the Admirals Club, pull my out my laptop and cellphone and make calls and return emails and write copy – exactly what I’d do if I were in my office. Except I do it calmly because I’m not rushed and I’m not stressed. I have friends who went through a relatively amicable divorce. Because they have three small children, and because they thought it would be too disruptive for the kids to move back and forth from one parent to the other every week, they came up with a paradigm shifting solution: They gave the house to the kids and the parents move in and out each week. By keeping the kids in one house, there was less disruption, fewer school changes, and more comforting surroundings. So the question is, what problems in your business, or your life, could be solved if you just looked at them differently? Or is that a whole different kettle of fish? Dammit, there go those animal metaphors again! Q Bruce Turkel is a branding expert who’s been featured on CNN, NPR and The New York Times. Reach him at bturkel@turkel.info.
