from the editor

It’s 2017!!!

January - a new year, and like most folks I begin January

with a “To Do” list. I prefer not to say resolutions...On my

list (of only 10 things) I always include eat healthier, exercise

more, take better care of my skin, etc. Thankfully Delray

Beach is a “One Stop Shop” for all of these.

Inside this issue of Atlantic Ave Magazine we get to know our

Fire Chief Neal deJesus. He began his impressive fire fighting

career at the age of 18 and has served many communities in

every rank available. With 34 years of experience we are lucky

to have him. Read more about him and his dedication in our

City Person feature.

In need for a quick pick-me-up? Stop by Venetian Nail Spa in

the Delray Beach Markey Place and get a Mani-Pedi that will

help you forget your troubles! They service men and women

and offer you a beverage while you get pampered, ahhh...

Hungry? Stop by Off the Ave and indulge in one of their many

freshly made dishes. From handmade Angus burgers to authentic

Pittsburgh pierogis, and their selection of craft beers that

change seasonally, you will not leave hungry! And make sure

you leave room for dessert.

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2017!

delray under $50

By Darien Arden


Now that Delray Beach is a rising star in the art, culture and social

scene, it might seem a little difficult to find affordable activities, shops

or restaurants. I am here to prove you wrong. Delray Beach offers a mix

of high-end boutiques with laid-back restaurants, and events for the

whole family or nightclubs for night owls. Here is what you can do in

Delray Beach in January for $50 or less.

Creativity feeds the soul and there’s

a pretty good chance that your

daily habits don’t do a lot to get

the juices flowing. The New Year is a

great time to regroup and focus on more

of what makes you happy, and if that includes

thinking outside the box, you’re in

luck. January is International Creativity

Month and you’re invited to attend the

28th Annual Downtown Delray Beach

Festival of the Arts. Held January 21 and

22, this art festival is a great way to enjoy

the outdoors, get together with friends,

and either pick up a few pieces for your

home or soak up the artistic aura of the

vendors for your own creative pleasure.

This juried art festival of hand-crafted

artwork includes glass, photography,

painting, mixed media, fiber, jewelry and

much more from hundreds of vendors.

As if it could get any better, the festival

is held from Federal Highway to A1A, so

enjoy strolling along the palm-tree lined

Avenue and taking some well needed pitstops

in the restaurants for a cool cocktail.

The Festival of the Arts is held 10

a.m. to 5 p.m. both days so that leaves you

plenty of green for filling up the creativity

bank. Visit or call

(561) 746-6615 for more information.

It’s the beginning of the year, which

means it’s the perfect time to create

your plan of attack for 2017. Whatever

you’re devising, make sure it includes

a nice balance between work and play,

and future goals and present enjoyment.

January is Get a Balanced Life Month so

26 January 2017 |

gather the friends because you’ve

got a painting party to get

to. Vino Van Gogh offers

guests a relaxed, social,

group setting

in which to receive

step-by-step directions

for painting

a unique art

piece. You literally

don’t have to

worry about anything

because you

will be provided a

canvas, brushes, paints,

easels and an apron, and

are guaranteed to leave the class

with a one-of-a-kind piece of art (or at

least something with which to decorate

your garage) and the satisfaction of having

a really fun time with the pals. You

are welcome to bring your own snacks

and wine, or you can purchase champagne,

wine and beer, so all signs point

to a fabulously balanced night out. Class

prices range from $25-$40 depending on

the night and the painting, so put on your

beret because you have a masterpiece to

create. Vino Van Gogh is located at 153

N.E. Fourth Ave. Visit

or call (561) 272-5272 for more


Loving yourself comes in a myriad

of actions, thoughts and beliefs, but

it all boils down to appreciating

yourself and knowing you’re worth it. Especially

now with the pressure to make

this next year the best year, pay attention

to your mind and body. One way to do

that is to love the skin you’re in, and, also

important, to love how you adorn it. January

is Self-Love Month and is also home

to the Delray Beach Fashion Week, where

you’ll have a chance to enjoy a week of

fashion, style and sophistication. Held

January 25 through 29, there are different

events each day that focus on a different

part of fashion. January 25 is “An

Evening Downtown” kick-off event at The

Colony Hotel featuring eveningwear and

a hair showcase by downtown boutiques

and hair salons. January 26 features a

“Delray on the Runway” designer show

and a “Tropical Paradise” on January 27

that features a resort-wear fashion show

and luncheon, with the famous Stiletto Race that same evening.

Enjoy “Beachside Glamour: The Sand and Surf Show,”

which is the final fashion show event and features swimwear

and beachwear, and the “Fashion Week Boutique:

Shopping Event” on January 29 that features pop-up boutiques

selling the clothing and accessories from the week.

It’ll be a one-stop shop for decorating the temple that is

your body, and no mall involved. Events are held up and

down the Avenue. Visit

or call (561) 243-1077 for more information.

Peace out, coffee, there’s a better drink in town. Hot

or cold, tea is such a go-to drink if you need to mellow

out, get a pick-me-up, and everything in between.

January 12 is National Hot Tea Day so count your

lucky stars because you have a tea gem right in your back

yard. Yaxche Tearoom is the golden ticket of tea shops because

it features more than 100 different types of teas from

all over the world, and the super friendly tea-istas are more

than willing to let you smell your way to your perfect tea

blend. To top it off, they make all of their teas with GOOD-

WATER, which they claim is the purest, cleanest water on

Earth. (Hey, if it’s good enough for the President, it’s good

enough for me.) You’re invited to take a seat in their eclectic

space, enjoy your tea and a bite to eat, and revel in all

that is good in the world. Enjoy a cup of Soul Mate, Cosmic

Coconut, Dream Catcher or Feelin’ Fine, among others,

feel the zen and repeat. Yaxche Tearoom is located at 14 S.

Swinton Ave. Visit or call (561)

865-7618 for more information and special events.

Yes, it’s the New Year. Yes, we all said we were going to

get super fit, tan and attractive this year. ..or maybe

that was just me. Regardless, feeling great doesn’t

mean that we have to eat gluten-free cardboard until we’re

skeletors. January 1 is the start of National Lose Weight/

Feel Great Week and is a great time to kick-start our goals

for 2017. If you don’t feel like cooking for yourself the

whole week (and still want a bit of fun), head to Gary Rack’s

Farmhouse Kitchen downtown and indulge in their waistfriendly

menu. They focus on a farm-fresh lifestyle, do not

cook with butters, creams or use excess fat, and a significant

portion of their menus items are either gluten free, vegan or

vegetarian. Some of their signature items include a crushed

avocado toast with ricotta and kale pesto for $9, or a fried

green tomato with green beans, goat cheese and roasted tomato

for $11. They also offer salads made with farm-fresh

organic greens hand-picked from their trusted purveyors,

including the roots and fruits salad and kale yeah salad

for $14 each. If you want something beefier, enjoy the bison

meatloaf with cheddar cauliflower mash, green beans

and shiitake gravy for $21 or the spaghetti squash casserole

(which is off-the-charts good) with artichoke, zucchini,

arugula, mozzarella and Pomodoro for $18. Whatever your

healthy pleasure, you are guaranteed to lose weight and feel

great after your meal, and that’s something we can all celebrate.

Howard Alan Events Celebrates Three Decades of Award-

Winning Art Festivals in Palm Beach County this January

Delray Beach Festival of the Arts

Season has arrived in Palm Beach

County, and for thousands of residents

and visitors that means the return

of two of the top art festivals in the

state. This year, Boca Fest is marking

30 years back in its original location

outside the Town Center Mall January

14 – 15, 10am to 5pm, and Downtown

Delray Beach Festival of the Arts celebrates

28 years with more than 250

world-class art exhibitors January

21 – 22, 10am to 5pm. The professionally

vetted, juried art festivals

are produced by Howard Alan Events

(HAE), which has been presenting

award-winning art and craft events

and helping drive economic growth

for more than three decades.

Featuring high-end sculptures,

spectacular paintings, one-of-a-kind

jewels, photography, ceramics and

more, Boca Fest has remained one

of the most popular art events of the

year, with more than 175 national

artists in attendance. The Downtown

Delray Beach Festival of the Arts sees

more than 250 artists from more than

30 states, as well as other countries

and is ranked as one of the top art

fairs in the United States, with visitors

planning vacations around the

popular event.

While the economic impact reveals

the longstanding appeal of the venerable

Howard Alan Events’ Art Festivals

to area businesses and municipalities,

the fans of the Festivals cite the free

admission, free parking and the highquality

and diversity of the art itself

as the reasons for their lasting appeal.

Boca Fest is located at 6000 Glades

Road, behind Town Center Mall. The

Downtown Delray Beach Festival of

the Arts is located on East Atlantic

Avenue in Downtown Delray Beach

from US1 to the Ocean. For more

information on these, or the nearly

80 other professional Art and Craft

shows visit or

call 561-746-6615.

Gotta See

By skip sheffield

January 6

“Hidden Figures” is an inspiring way

to start the New Year. It is the true story

of three brainiac women mathematicians

who enabled the breakthrough to

get American astronaut John Glenn (Glen

Powell) into space in 1961. The catch was,

these women (Taraji P. Henson as Katherine

Johnson, Octavia Spencer as Dorothy

Vaughn and Janelle Monae as Mary Jackson)

were African-American, working in

the strictly segregated State of Virginia.

Kevin Costner plays their boss Al Harrison,

who saw beyond his own prejudices.

Jim Parsons plays his underling Paul Stafford,

who learned a lesson about tolerance.

Ted Melfi (“St. Vincent”) directs.

On the other side of the coin we have

“Underworld: Blood Wars.” Kate Beckinsale

returns slumming as vampire-fighter

Selene. Theo James is David, Charles

Dance is Thomas, and the director is Anna

Foerster. Evidently this is her debut effort.

January 13

“Patriot’s Day” is another thriller

to wake you up in the dead of winter.

It’s based on the true story of the 2013

Kate Beckinsale


Blood Wars”

bombing that killed three people and

injured 264, prompting a search for

the murderous Tsarnaev brothers. The

A-list cast includes Mark Wahlberg,

J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Michelle

Monaghan, Kevin Bacon and Alex Wolff

as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Peter Berg (“Deep

Water Horizon”) directs.

“Live by Night” is set in the Roaring

Twenties, before Prohibition pulled the

plug on all the festivities. Ben Affleck

co-wrote and directs this tall tale about

Joe Coughlin (Affleck), son of a Boston

Police Superintendent who went outlaw

and eventually ended up in Tampa after

he steals money and the girl of a Boston

mobster. The story is based on a novel by

Dennis Lehane. Sienna Miller, Zoe Soledana,

Elle Fanning, Chris Messina and

Chris Cooper co-star.

“Monster Trucks” describes it all. High

school senior Tripp (Lucas Till) is a high

school senior who wants to break out of

his small town. He builds a monster truck

from bits and pieces of other vehicles.

Then an accident at an oil-drilling site unleashes

a strange subterranean beast with

a taste for speed. This CGI and live action

film co-stars Rob Lowe, Thomas Lennon,

Jane Levy and Barry Pepper Chris Wedge

(the three “Ice Age” movies) directs.

“Bye-Bye Man” has all the earmarks

of a low-budget horror thriller. Three college

students encounter the man of the

title, and he gets into their heads, literally.

The only name cast member is Carrie-

Anne Moss as Detective Shaw. The director

is Stacy Title, whose previous title was

“Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror” in 2006.

“Sleepless” is not a remake of

“Sleepless in Seattle.” No, it’s a

remake of the French film

“Nuit Blanche” (White

Night). Jamie Foxx stars

as Las Vegas undercover

cop Vincent Downs. His

teenage son is kidnapped by

casino bad guys, and the chase

is on. Supporting players are

Jennifer Bryant, Dermot Mulroney,

Michelle Monaghan, Gabrielle Union,

T.I. and the ever-popular Scoot McNairy.

Baron bo Odar (“The Silence”) directs.

January 20

We didn’t know he had gone away. Vin

Diesel reprises his title role of “XXX: The

Return of Xander Cage,” and not a moment

too soon. Some deadly alpha warrior

has unleashed a weapon known as Pandora’s

Box. It’s up to Xander and his superhero

friends to once again save the world.

They include Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Jaa,

Jet Li, Nina Dobrev and Deepika Padukone.

D.J. Caruso (“Disturbia”) directs.

So who was behind the transition of

a small Southern California hamburger

chain into a multi-billion-dollar international

corporation? That would be “The

Founder” Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a

salesman from Illinois who recognized

the innovation of the McDonald brothers

operation, and bought them out. Laura

Dern plays Ethel, the first Mrs. Kroc. John

Lee Hancock (“Saving Mr. Banks”) directs.

Will M. Night Shyamalan redeem himself

with “Split?” Good question. James

McAvoy stars as a man with 23 separate

personalities. Betty Buckley is his trusted

shrink, Dr. Fletcher. Anya Taylor-Joy and

Jessica Smith also star.

We can only hope. “Resident Evil: The

Final Retribution” claims to be the final

episode in the series begun by director

Paul W.S. Anderson in 2002. Once again

Alice (Milla Jovovich) must return to The

Hive in Raccoon City where the Umbrella

Corporation is preparing a final strike

against the only survivors of the Apocalypse.

Ali Larter, Shawn Roberts and Ruby

Rose co-star in this movie based on the

popular video game.

“Bastards” is the story of fraternal

twins Peter and Kyle Reynolds (Ed Helms

and Owen Wilson), whose weird mother

(Glenn Close) has brought them up believing

their father died when they were

young. When they learn that was a lie,

they go off in search of their long-lost

dad, and the fun begins. J.K. Simmons, Ed

Helms, Ryan Cartwright, Harry Shearer

and Ving Rhames fill out the cast.

“Gold” sounds pretty straight forward.

Two desperate guys want to find gold in

the remote jungles of Indonesia. Those

guys are failing businessman Kenny Wells

(Matthew McConaughey) and a geologist

played by Edgar Ramirez. Supporting

players are Bryce Dallas Howard, Bruce

Greenwood and Corey Stoll. Stephen

Gaghan (“Syriana”) directs. | January 2017 41

Rebirth: A Fable of

Love, Forgiveness, and

FOLLOWing Your Heart

by Kamal Ravikant

Released January 3, 2017

“Rebirth,” an inspiring

novel about

the magic that happens

when you learn

to follow your heart.

After the death

of his estranged father,

Amit takes his

parent’s ashes to

the Ganges to fulfill

a deathbed promise. Instead of returning

home, he wanders, his pain and grief

leaving him confused about his future.

Almost broke, unsure about his direction

in life, and running from memories, he is

led by fate to the Camino de Santiago, an

ancient 550-mile pilgrimage route across

northern Spain.

Amit meets a variety of travelers on his

journey. Some are lost and searching for

answers. Others are doing their best to

leave the past behind. And there are a few

who walk to celebrate life. All have stories

and lessons to share.

Once a reluctant pilgrim, Amit realizes

he cannot stop until he completes

the journey. As a traveler tells him, “Once

you start walking the Camino, the Camino

becomes a part of you.” With each step

Amit is challenged to confront his fear of

following in the footsteps of his father, the

loss of a woman he may love after all, and

the reality of an uncertain future.

His month-long pilgrimage forces Amit

to face life’s big questions, and causes him

to grow and embrace a new sense of purpose

and being.

Based on the author’s experience of

walking the legendary Camino de Santiago,

and told in the tradition of Paulo Coelho

and Mitch Albom, “Rebirth” is a beautiful

fable about forgiveness, synchronicity,

and the unexpected adventures that reveal

who we are.

But Rachel wasn’t planning on running

into Joe’s cousin, the man who made her

Brodie has come home to help his

grandfather’s fishing business, but he’d

prefer not to see Rachel. Although she

against time to find the true murderer—a

ruthless villain who not only took Artemisia’s

Dear Friend,

“Before You Give Up, Do This…”

Some people come to my office and tell me

they’ve “tried everything.” They come to me

ready to give up.

That’s right, four out of five people who show

up in my office have taken “every” test, wound

up with huge medical bills, and are still no

better off. Often, they’ve been subjected to

medications that have only served to temporarily

mask symptoms. But, that’s not what

most people are looking for.

Health (or the lack of it) very often has simple

causes, and very reasonable corrections.

That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But,

before I tell you more, let me tell you something

about me.

Here’s my story…

And you’ll be surprised how simple it is…

“At the time, I’m an active, happy ten year

old, and life is good. But then, it happens… I

develop a painful type of headache known as

‘migraines.’ In my case it comes on suddenly.

On a weekly basis I’m getting at least one migraine

with pain so bad I have to go in a dark

room, with no sounds, and pray when I wake

up the pain is gone. The throbbing pain sometimes

is so bad I can’t even think. I’m afraid

I’ll do badly in school, be unable to do sports,

and lose friends if the disability continues. After

trying medication (one of the only options,

according to the doctor) my parents and I decide

against it. But, there’s more…

A family friend convinces my family and me to

give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an

exam, takes some films, and then ‘corrects’ my

spine (he tells me there’s nerve pressure on my

neck going to my head). The correction doesn’t

hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and

shortly afterwards, my migraines disappear.

Oh, did I mention this doctor is a chiropractor?

Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m

so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in

his office, I eventually go to chiropractic school

myself. And that’s how it happened!”

Let me tell you about Natalia, my wife. For

5 years, she suffered with bad low back pain

and restless pain in her legs at night. Since she

was a nurse she saw specialists who ordered

tests. They put her on powerful medications

yet she still suffered. At age 28, after suffering

for years, she started chiropractic care here,

and the pain in her legs is now only a rarity,

and she has no low back pain at all.

Sitting in our relaxation room after a treatment helps your adjustments last longer.

For the last 5 years, people from Delray Beach

and the surrounding areas have come to see me


• Headaches/Migraines

• Vertigo

• Back Pain

• Neck Pain

• Shoulder/Arm Pain

• Backaches

• Numbness In Limbs

• Athletic Injuries

just to name a few…

Here’s some of your neighbors success stories:

“I am feeling better on so many levels. I went in

because of some back pain and after my treatments

I found my general health improving as well! I’m

very happy with the care I am receiving from Dr.


(Joe Gillie, Delray Beach, FL)

“This is the best thing I have ever done for my

body!” (Rosanne Patsy, Delray Beach, FL)

Exciting Offer - Look, I know you’re smart.

You want to get to the cause of your problems,

and not just cover them up with drugs. When

you are one of the first 20 people to call and

schedule a New Patient exam before January 31,

2017 you’ll receive the entire exam for $27. This

includes x-rays, paraspinal thermal imaging,

postural analysis… and there are no hidden

fees. But, call right away, as we expect to

be flooded with calls. This exam normally

costs $190. Again, there are only 20 slots

available, so don’t miss out. (The patient and

any other person responsible for payment

has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment,

or be reimbursed for any other service,

examination, or treatment that is performed

within 72 hours of responding to the

advertisement for the free, discounted fee, or

reduced fee examination, or treatment.).

Great care at a great fee… Please, I hope that

there’s no misunderstanding about quality

of care just because I have a lower exam fee.

You’ll get great care at a great fee. I’ve been

helping your neighbors here in Delray Beach

for three years now. I have the low exam fee

to help more people who need care. Our

office is both friendly and warm and we try

our best to make you feel at home. We have a

wonderful service, at an exceptional fee! Our

Plantar Fasciitis… Sprinting

into the New Year pain free

By Dr. John Conde

Each year, approximately 2 million Americans are afflicted by Plantar

Fasciitis (PF). One out of 10 will struggle with it for life. The plantar fascia,

also known as the plantar aponeurosis, is like a sheath covering the muscle

fascicles in the sole of the foot preventing friction during movement.

They may become painful at the distal

end (usually in the midfoot) or the proximal

end near the insertion of the calcaneus,

often referred to as “heel pain syndrome.”

This can occur due to repetitive micro-traumas

of the tissue resulting in inflammation

and thickening of the plantar fascia of the

foot causing knife-like, sharp, burning pain.

At times, symptoms seem to begin “out of

nowhere” however, acute conditions may

occur as a result of a sudden increase in activity,

jumping or agility training, prolonged

standing, and improper footwear allowing

excessive pronation of the foot, particularly

in the overweight athlete.

Clinically, PF presents unilaterally, but it

is common to have pain in both feet. Symptoms

are especially worse in the morning

with the first steps out of bed or initial

weight-bearing after sitting and are typically

aggravated with prolonged weight

bearing activity. Pain is specifically noted

during ankle dorsiflexion with toe-off in

the gait cycle which causes stretching of

the arch of the foot, further contributing to

the micro-traumas.

As a result of persistent pain, secondary

conditions related to antalgic position

(leaning away from pain) by shifting weight

on the lateral border of the foot or forward

onto the toes can present concomitantly

with PF causing changes in proper biomechanics

of the gait cycle. Restriction of ankle

dorsiflexion and Achilles tendonitis significantly

increase this risk. Often symptoms

can progress to the inability to bear weight

at all. If no treatment is received, the condition

could progress to a degenerative fasciopathy

leading to

chronic dysfunction

of the foot or rupture

of the fascia.

The primary goals in

treating PF are to reduce

inflammation, break up

fibrotic adhesions (scar

tissue), strengthen surrounding

musculature and

neurological pathways and restore

proper joint motion. This

entails some simple procedures

including Instrument Assisted

Soft Tissue Mobilization Therapy

that utilizes mild stainless instruments

scanning the fascia

searching for fibrotic changes.

These changes are felt through

the instrument that acts like

a stethoscope to magnify the

“lesions” which aid in breaking

up existing scar tissue,

increasing fibroblasts or “collagen

builders” within the cells,

proliferate and realign new collagen

fibers. New cutting edge procedures involve

the use of high power class IV lasers

that accelerate energy production and tissue

healing by nearly tenfold.

These treatments can be extremely effective

in a short time and approximately 90%

of cases recover without residual disability,

however, the key to effective treatment of PF

is dedicated patient compliance. Please contact

our office for more detailed information

about plantar fasciitis and how we can help

you get this new year off to a running start!

health & beauty ║ dermatology



By Thomas C. Balshi, M.D.


Medically, it’s known as superciliary madarosis, from the Greek madaros,

which means “bald.” Women, who often regard this as devastating, simply

know it as thinning eyebrows. Surprisingly, most women over 40 are affected.

Eyebrows are a very important part of an

attractive face. Male or female, the brows

contribute to the emotion of the face. Like

window treatments enhancing beautiful

windows, the brows add the finishing touch

to a pair of healthy, sparkling eyes. Lush

thick brows imply youth. In combination

with the eyes they facilitate our interactive

skills with others. They are part of our natural

make-up and our face just doesn’t look

the same without them.

There are many reasons why someone can

lose eyebrow hair. Years of over plucking

can be the culprit but there are also medical

conditions that result in thinning of the eyebrows.

The first step should be to identify

the cause and then we move on to determine

the best “fix.”

Below are the most common causes of

thinning eyebrows.

1. Hypothyroidism

Also known as Queen Anne’s sign, it’s not

nearly as beautiful as the name implies. It’s

50 January 2017 |

a thinning of the lateral third

of one’s eyebrows and can be

a result of hypothyroidism.

If you notice you’re feeling

fatigued, have low moods

and dry skin, or are becoming

intolerant to cold, you

are exhibiting symptoms and

should consult an endocrinologist.

2. Nutrient deficiency

Diets that are short on vitamins

A, E, D and B can lead to

a thinning of the eyebrows. A

lack of biotin, iron and lysine

will also make the hair weak

and brows look sparse. Luckily,

most of these nutrients can

be found in natural foods like

walnuts, spinach, carrots and kale. They’re

also available in eggs and fish. A healthy diet

might alleviate the problem.

3. Seborrheic Dermatitis

Seb Derm, commonly known as eczema, it

can be found anywhere on the body. And yes,

that includes the skin underneath the eyebrows.

Red, itchy patches become inflamed

and hair thins over these patches. This is

one for the dermatologist.

4. Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is a chronic autoimmune

disease in which the immune system erroneously

attacks the hair follicles, causing

inflammation and temporary hair loss. Any

hair-bearing skin site can be affected by alopecia

areata, including the eyebrows. Again,

see the dermatologist.

5. Aging

As one grows old, the production of hormones

like estrogen decreases. This makes

one susceptible to levels of DHT in hair follicles.

DHT (a hormone like testosterone)

forms a barrier that prevents the nutrients

from reaching the hair. When that happens,

brow hairs begin to fall as a result. This is

the toughest “fix.”

What should one do if suffering from

eyebrow thinning?

1. If due to thyroid issues, an endocrinologist

will be able to provide medications to

treat the condition.

2. Try eating healthy and consuming lots

of natural vitamins.

3. See a dermatologist for thinning combined

with redness or discomfort.

4. People who have thinning brows due to

age might want to consider permanent cosmetic

tattoos. The road to permanent, beautiful

brows could start with something as

simple as finding a good technician. Or for

a less aggressive approach, there are several

makeup tips on YouTube about how to make

thinning eyebrows look fuller.

5. Protect what you have. If you notice

your brows thinning, don’t make it worse by

continuing with the plucking, shaving, rubbing

or any of the other stuff you used to do.

Instead, take care to pamper the brows and

wash them tenderly.

6. Try re-growth serums. Dermatologists

may offer a serum specifically for eyebrows.

These are different from “Rogaine” which

does not work to re-grow eyebrows. Always

consult with a doctor when involving the use

of serums.

Most importantly, whether medically

caused or strictly a cosmetic issue, a good

dermatologist will understand your need

and advise you the best way to achieve it.

health & beauty ║ Your Dental Health

Let’s Work to Keep Your

Teeth for a Lifetime

BY Craig Spodak, DMD, PA


Start 2017 with a happy,

healthy smile

With advancements in dental technology

and consistent at-home regimens, Americans

are keeping their teeth longer than ever before.

Now that’s something to smile about!

Because we are keeping our teeth even longer,

it’s even more important to visit your

dentist regularly to avoid any complications

that might arise. But, not to fret, there is a fix

for everything!

Tooth Decay: Regardless of your age, your

teeth are still susceptible to cavities, and even

increases as you get older. You can get cavities

on the surfaces of teeth that have never

been a problem before, and you can also get

them around old fillings or at the root of your

tooth as it becomes softer and more exposed.

Regular brushing and flossing never goes out

of style, so ensure you continue these healthy

habits regardless of age.

The Fix: It’s as simple as fluoride. Fluoride

is one of the 10 great public health achievements

of the 20th Century. Roughly 80 percent

of people in the United States have

fluorinated water, but that only benefits children’s

developing teeth. As such, consider

adding a daily fluoride supplement, such as

a rinse of gel, and be sure to request fluoride

treatments at your dental appointments.

Professional fluoride varnish application by

your dentist or hygienist is by far the most

52 January 2017 |

effective cavity prevention.

Dry Mouth: Saliva is the mouth’s best

defense against tooth decay, but, as we go

through life, we produce less. Add medications

to that, and many people have reduced

saliva, placing them at increased risk for

tooth decay.

The Fix: If you suffer from dry mouth, try

to stimulate saliva production by drinking

water regularly throughout the day or even

chew sugar-free xylitol candies or gum. Your

dentist may prescribe a prescription saliva

substitute or recommend over-the-counter

formulations for you to try.

Gum Disease: If you notice that your

gums are red, swollen and bleed easily when

brushing or flossing, there’s a good chance

you have gingivitis, which is an early form of

gum disease. In America, roughly 50 percent

of people over the age of 30 suffer from gingivitis.

Untreated gingivitis often progresses

to infect the bone that supports your teeth.

The Fix: See your dentist regularly because

there is hope! Gingivitis is completely

reversible with good dental care. You may

need to visit your dentist and hygienist

more often so that your teeth and gums can

be cleaned and treated.

Oral Cancer: Almost 50,000 Americans

will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year,

so please quit smoking and reduce alcohol

consumption. Oral cancer incidence definitely

increases as your get older so pay attention

to your oral care and make sure you are visiting

your dentist and hygienist regularly.

The Fix: Only about half of the people who

develop oral cancer survive, so the best hope

is early diagnosis. Your dental exam should

include a check for oral cancer where your

dentist or hygienist will hold your tongue

and check the soft tissue in your mouth as

well as your throat and jaw.

Tooth Crowding: You might notice that

food is more often getting stuck between

your teeth, or a minor overlapping is more

noticeable, and you’re probably right. Teeth

shift more as you age and that can be problematic

because it makes your teeth more

difficult to clean and floss, which leads to

more decay. Also, shifting teeth can lead to

chipping and cracking, as well as causing

damage to supporting tissue and bone.

The Fix: If your teeth have shifted, you

could be a candidate for Invisalign, which

is the best way to move teeth without metal

braces. Invisalign will help get your teeth back

where they belong, and allow you to shine

your straight, healthy smile for years to come.

Grinding and Clenching: Grinding and

clenching occurs in your deepest sleep, so

most of us aren’t even aware we are doing

it. It causes damage to teeth, gums and bone,

and can lead to shifting, fractures and tooth

loss, as well as facial pain and headaches.

The Fix: Your dentist is able to give you a

night guard that you can wear at night to protect

your teeth while you sleep. Just pay attention

to any grinding and clenching that you

might be doing throughout the day and let your

dentist know if your habits are getting worse.

Your dentist’s goal is to help you keep your

teeth for a lifetime so if you have any questions

about the state of your smile, just go in

for a visit so your dentist can help you reach

your dental health goals. Your dentist is your

smile advocate so here’s to a healthy and

happy 2017 and beyond!

A ShortCut To Your

Fitness Goals?

By Ashley Sica

It’s that time of year again where food and drinks are flowing abundantly and

New Year resolutions will soon be in full swing. But before you jump back on

your health and fitness regime, consider adding a regimen that will help you

{attain your fitness goals faster and make you feel like a million bucks.

Sound too good to be true? Well

it’s not! It’s called Cellular Cleansing.

Cleansing has a huge range of

health benefits, but for the sake of

this article I am going to focus on

the benefits of Cellular Cleansing

paired with Intermittent Fasting.

These two practices put together

will turn your body in to a fat burning

machine and the rid your body of

the toxins that are keeping you from

reaching your fitness goals.

When I say cleansing, most people

probably think drinking a lemonade

type drink for 14 days, and when I say

fasting people usually think of “starvation.”

It’s neither of those. Traditional

“cleanses” will strip or deplete your

body with use of laxatives or diuretics

and leave you feeling weak and lethargic.

However, cleansing at the cellular

level helps your body release

un-wanted toxins in a safe and

efficient manner. (I can assure

you that you won’t be

needing to sit on the potty

all day long!) These toxins

that have built up in your

system are most likely the

culprits that make you

feel lethargic, bloated, fat,

sleepy, puffy, etc. In turn,

the toxins then make it

much harder for you to

lose weight. It’s fighting

an uphill battle. If you can

remove these toxins that

are brought on by bad eating

habits, pollution and environmental

factors your body

will be much more effective at metabolizing

food and burning fat. Now take Cellular

Cleansing and add in the practice of Intermittent

Fasting (also known as IF) and the

results are simply amazing! IF is simply

cutting back on calories for a shortened

or extended period of time in order to give

your digestive system a break. By doing so

IF helps reset your body to burn fat for fuel

by increasing growth hormone levels.

After having my 3nd child 7 months ago

I’ve been Intermittent Fasting religiously

and I can honestly say it has made getting

back in shape not too painful! This is not

just a short term fix for me, it’s something

that I will do the rest of my life. Not only

because it has helped whip me back into

shape but because of the amazing natural

energy it gives me along with a host of other

amazing benefits! The results have not

only been incredible for me but for many

others as well. Take “Jane” who has not lost

a single pound in over 6 months despite

eating clean and working out daily. After

incorporating Cellular Cleansing and Intermittent

Fasting into her regimen she lost

5 pounds in the first week and feels better

now than she ever has. This is just one

simple example out of the countless results

people have had from this method.

Learn more about Cellular Cleansing

and Intermittent Fasting and incorporating

this effective regiment to aide you in

your fitness goals for 2017. You will not be

Shop Green, Shop Local, Shop Smart

Delray GreenMarket

By Lori Nolan

{Farmer’s markets have been gaining popularity throughout the United States,

and it’s no surprise. Farmers markets help to boost the local economy, support

small business owners and entrepreneurs, are a greener option than shopping

at a supermarket, and create a positive social community environment.


The Delray GreenMarket, launched in

1996 by the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment

Agency (CRA) is no exception

to this national trend, and for 21 years the

Market has grown and flourished in Downtown

Delray Beach, offering an open-air alternative

for food shopping every Saturday.

The Delray GreenMarket offers more

than sixty-five of South Florida’s premier

culinary artisans and growers, specializing

in everything from local farm fresh veggies,

56 January 2017 |

fruitand citrus, fresh seafood, baked goods,

dairy products, kombucha, olive oil, flowers,

orchids, jams, shrubs and plenty of other

handcrafted food specialty items. Each vendor

is a local small business, meaning every

dollar spent at the GreenMarket goes to

support the person you are doing business

with, and the local economy.

Because the GreenMarket specializes in

fresh produce and food, you can be guaranteed

that everything you purchase is at

the peak of its season. Everything is freshly

made or picked, and many of the products

are picked for the Market that morning. You

also have the ability to meet and speak to

the folks who grew or produced the food

you are buying. If you have any questions

about a products health benefits, how to

prepare it, how something is grown, or if

you need some ideas for a new recipe,our

producers are passionate about the food

they produce, and are happy to share any

information you may need. The GreenMarket

also offers alternative products including,

organic, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, dairy

free, sugar-free, and gluten-free foods to fit

any lifestyle choice or dietary needs.

The Delray GreenMarket is not only passionate

about food; it is passionate about reducing

its carbon footprint. On average, produce

travels 1,500 miles to get from farm to

grocer. At the GreenMarket, that number

is greatly reduced because the produce is

from local Florida farms and handcrafted

products are locally sourced. The Green-

Market is also the only Market in South

Florida with a weekly, complimentary bike

valet sponsored by Human Powered Delray.

The Market encourages its visitors to bike to

the Market every Saturday to promote good

health and green transportation.

If all of these weren’t enough reasons to

visit the Delray GreenMarket every Saturday,

the Market is also a great place for fun

every week! Every Saturday, the GreenMarket

offers live music, a children’s Budding

Artist craft booth sponsored by Old School

Square, a playground, as well as a fun place

for friends and neighbors to meet up and

have a cup of coffee or stay for lunch! The


Market is always family-friendly and set in

beautiful downtown Delray Beach. Every

Saturday, October through May, the Green-

Market is located in Old School Square

Park and is open from 9AM to 2PM. In the

summer, the Market relocates to the Tennis

Center Parking lot and is open from 9AM-

Noon. Lori Nolan, the Delray GreenMarket

manager said, “I often hear people swapping

recipes and discussing how to prepare

the food they’re buying. It’s a great social

experience. There’s a lot of camaraderie

here- there are no strangers, only people

who haven’t met yet.”

Support local food and fun, and head to

the Delray GreenMarket every Saturday! It

is sure to be a feast for your eyes and ears,

with flavors to delight every palate. | January 2017 57

Dr. Young opened her charming, child friendly

office in June after signing a lease in 2013 to

build on a vacant lot on NE 4th Street in East


For three years, she evaluated and then approved

architectural plans with local designer

Francisco Perez. The final blueprint could not

have been a better fit.

Incisal Edge Magazine named Young Dentistry

the 2016 Best Specialty Office Design Award

Winner. Visitors to her spanking new state of

the art facility can truly understand why.

“I had a vision of what I wanted - a bright and

sunny place where kids can enjoy and have fun

and not be afraid to visit a dentist. It was definitely

worth the wait.” said Young.

Dr. Marcie with her family - James, Rheya, and Remi

The open bay concept works well for children

“And this area really was in need of a Pediatric

Dental Office.”

Dr. Marcie Young, DMD has Florida roots - a

native of Cooper City, she received a Bachelor’s

Degree from the University of Florida and graduated

from the UF Dental School in 2004. Two

years later, she completed a two year program

in Pediatric Dentistry at New York University,

focusing on growth, development, sedation and

special needs patients.

In 2008, Marcie returned to Florida with

husband James who preferred to make Delray

Beach his permanent home and an ideal venue

to raise a family.

Today, Marcie lives only a few blocks away

and she couldn’t be happier.

“My life is here. Delray is ultimately where

I wanted to be. I love riding my bike or taking

a golf cart to work and being close to my kids

(daughters Remi and Rheya).

As a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist and

Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric

dentistry, Marcie spent nine years in Palm

Beach Gardens working for Dr. Mimy’s Children’s

Dentistry before moving to Delray. She

continues to be on staff at the St. Mary’s Medical


Dr. Marcie Young’s practice offers her adolescent

patients a unique experience that includes

both the kids and their parents.

Interactive patient education

“In the past, parents usually stayed in the waiting room until their

children came out. Here they become part of the appointment and I

welcome them. It’s really about what is best for the child.”

External stimuli are highly visible at Young Dentistry where multiple

large floor to ceiling windows adorn the main room with adjourning

suites highlighted by a bright blue and white décor.

“The kids can watch TV which is better than any medicine I can

give them or spend time in a play area before their appointment. We

want them to enjoy the experience.

Her state of the art equipment features the latest low dose x-ray

machines and needleless injections but prior to their application, she

explains to the kids what will happen next.

“I talk to the children about what will happen and carefully show

them what I will be doing. I don’t want to surprise them.”

Marcie sees adolescents ranging one year old through college with

a continued focus on anticipatory guidance, prevention and establishing

good hygiene and dental care habits.

When her patients become adults, their dental needs may change

and general dentists become the norm.

For Dr. Marcie Young, opening a new business creates a litany of

responsibilities away from the actual practice of working on children.

“Practicing Dentistry is the easy part. It’s the marketing that becomes

so important.”

Marcie frequently visits local schools, collaborates with nurses.

She hands out toothpaste and toothbrushes and occasionally flosses

a child to show how it should be correctly done.

She also finds time to actively support the Achievement Center and

the Miracle League of Palm Beach County, The Banyan Creek Elementary

School Theatre Department and Impact 100.

Dr. Marcie Young has goals - to provide needed access to the best

dental care for children and to become a truly visible presence in her


“I am excited to let people know that we are here. I wanted to fill a

void, be recognized as the “go to” Pediatric Dentist in this community.”

For now, Marcie is the sole dentist but as her practice continues to

grow, other Pediatric Dentists may come on board. She currently employs

two Dental Assistants within her practice along with a trained

Anesthesiologist who can perform IV sedations if needed.

Dr. Marcie Young of Delray Beach is living her dream.

It’s a Family Affair at

Price Flooring

By Martin LenkowskY

{“From the moment you walk in our doors,

until you walk on your new floors, Price is

right for you,” is Price Flooring’s motto.

Just walking through the doors at Price

Flooring immediately brings to mind the

best of two hugely popular TV shows:

Cheers, “where everyone knows your

name,” and All in the Family, where the

name speaks for itself.

Price Flooring, 2001-B W. Atlantic Ave.,

has been at its Delray Beach location, on the

northwest corner of Congress and Atlantic

for 10 years.

Price Flooring is a local, family-owned

business. Ray Price is the owner. He takes

pride in everything he does. He wants the

business to run smoothly. What more can

you ask for? How often do you walk into a

60 January 2017 |

business every day and see the owner?

Ray, a Florida native, has been in the flooring

business since 1989, a total of 27 years.

Price Flooring sells a huge selection of

tile, wood laminate, water-proof laminate,

glass and stone. “We provide materials and

installation,” Nicole said. “We’re the authorized

flooring vendor for Costco in Broward

and Palm Beach counties.”

Nicole is proud their company has such

a loyal clientele. “We’ve been doing this so

long, we have a big following with retail

customers, designers and contractors,” she

said, adding how their business has expanded.

project from A to Z. We handle everything

from materials to peace of mind installation

and scheduling.”

Nicole, who’s been with Price Flooring

since it first opened its doors, is engaged

to owner Ray. “Ray is an incredible father,”

she said, “one of the smartest men I know.

He’s a phenomenal father, mentor and


And once again returning to a TV theme,

well almost, Nicole adds “Everybody loves

Ray.” As for herself, she says, “I’m a permanent

fixture; I’m not going anywhere.”

Not only do all of Price Flooring’s associates

see themselves as one big family, they

view their many loyal customers as family

as well. “We treat our customers like family,”

Nicole says. “They feel we’ve known

them for years.”

Christina Hess has also been with Price

Flooring for many years. “We’re all veterans

in this industry,” she said. “We’ve got

a 120-years of combined experience between


Although not a family member of the

Price clan like Ray, his brother Peter, and

soon-to-be Nicole, Christine jokingly calls

herself, “Lois” Price.

Price Flooring carries only quality merchandise,

says Nicole. “We are the No. 1

distributor in the state of Florida for Shaw

Flooring, a company owned by billionaire

Warren Buffet,” she says. “They make the

most ‘green friendly’ products. They are

compliant with California environmental

laws. They follow the strictest environmental

guidelines. Most of their products are

made here in the U.S.A.

Price carries only first quality material.

“We have more than 5,000 square feet of

showroom to choose from; starting at 99

cents a foot,” says Nicole. “We’re a huge

importer. We import tile from all over. We

cut out the middle man, and pass the savings

on to the customers. We’re a direct

importer of tile; wood plank tile, and bathroom

tile. We’re licensed, insured, and have

workers’ comp.”

Nicole is quick to point out something

that makes Price Flooring a rarity in the

field. “We’re not on commission,” she says.

“We’re here to help people.”

No job is too big or too small for them.

“We’re here to help people with their sixby-six

bathroom,” Nicole said. “And you

might remember us for your next, bigger

project. We have the ability to handle a

he’s been doing it for like 30 years. Yes, we

Because Price Flooring’s employees have

so many years of experience, they offer

something rather unique to their customers.

trying to achieve.”

Price Flooring provides its customers

A Place To Be Pampered

Manicures, pedicures, and a free therapy

session? It’s all in a day’s work at Venetian

Nail Spa in Delray Beach Marketplace.

“We get a lot of repeat clientele,” says coowner

Vivian Nguyen. “It’s more like a family.”

Vivian opened this franchise four years

ago next month. It’s located at 9097 W. Atlantic

Ave., Suite 102, Delray Beach, FL. They

were one of the first businesses to set up

shop in Delray Beach’s western environs,

and they’ve been building a loyal customer

base ever since. Previously, she had been at

a Venetian Nail Spa in Weston.

Vivian says Venetian Nail Spa stands out

compared to other nail salons because of

the rapport she’s established with her customers.

“We offer great customer service,

friendliness and cleanliness,” she says.

“We’ve created a family environment. Our

customers are not just a number. We treat

them like family. They feel comfortable

around us.”

Vivian, Joey and the Team

Rayan A Santos & Joey Nguyen

One such customer is Lake Worth resident

Laura Tierney. She’s been coming to

Venetian Nail Spa for two and a half years.

“The first time I walked in I thought the

place was beautiful,” she says. “It was very

clean and inviting compared to other places

I’ve been. Vivian is always very friendly. She

always says hello. I love coming here. I look

forward to it. It’s my time to get pampered.”

If one believes for a moment only women

go in to have their nails done; think again,

Vivian says. “We’re also very popular with

men” she says. “My store is one of the most

popular for men. They get a lot of manicures

and pedicures.”

Vivian describes her clientele as very diverse

. “We get customers from 5-year-olds

to 80-year-olds,” she says.

Nail technician Rayana Santos has been doing nails for 14 years.

She joined Venetian Nail Spa five months after it opened. “I love it

here,” she says. “We are like one big family. We joke around a lot.

We’re all young and understand each other. We’re always here for

each other. If one of us is down, we have each other’s back.”

Vivian says her staff of 25 is very diverse. “We have people

from Asia. We have Hispanics,” she says. “They’re all very well

trained, professional and experienced.”

Vivian has been in the nail salon business for many years. “My

family started about 15 years ago,” she says.

Plus, if a customer should need a little refreshment, Vivian is

always ready. “We also offer complimentary wine, soda and water,”

she says. “Wine is every girl’s best friend. They never let us

down, red or white.”

Spa hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.;

Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. “But we do private parties as long as it’s

within our regular business hours,” Vivian says.

In addition to manicures and pedicures, Vivian says they provide

a wide range of service including nail extensions, hot stone

spa pedicures, milk and honey foot massages, manicures with

hand massages, and waxing liquid gels.

The first thing one notices upon entering Venetian Nail Spa

is a deep blue, soothing ceiling mural of the sky punctuated by

scattered white puffy cumulus clouds. To the left of the entrance

lies a fitting, namesake wall mural of Venice, lifelike with canal

and gondola. To the right of the front door is a multi-colored display

of nail polishes, foot creams and facial products.

Part of superb customer service in a nail spa is to provide the

best techniques in cleanliness and hygiene. Vivian says pedicure

chairs are bleached regularly – after each customer, and sanitized

daily. Equipment is thoroughly sterilized as well. “We do

have pedicure liners if requested,” she adds.

Esthetician Susan Anthony joined the Venetian Nail Spa staff

a few months ago, and recently launched a facial services menu.

She does skin services, including facials and peels. She also owns

her own skin spa in Chicago. “I work with cosmetic surgeons and

doctors in Chicago,” she says. Every six to eight weeks she does

her own ultra skin peels, and her own perfectly smooth, creamy,

beautiful complexion most definitely proves it.

Jayson Serrano is trained in over 30 different

modalities and Certified in Medical

massage and Swe-Thai massage. The local

therapist says massage has many physiological

effects including releasing tight and

sore muscles which increases circulation to

all areas of the body; reduction in recovery

time from certain injuries; breaking of the

pain-tension cycle; and removal of toxins and

waste products that build up in the tissues.

The massage therapists are continually

advancing on the knowledge and techniques

by their continuing education, which increases

the accuracy of the treatments and

decreases the total number of visits. The

For over 10 years, Jayson has practiced

and trained in the art of massage therapy.

His passion for being in the holistic field

began at a young age while watching his

grandmother and mother cooking organic

food and only using natural products, “I still

remember the chicken soups and sancocho,”

he mentioned. His grandmother also had a

little farm with animals and a small garden

full of medicinal, home remedy plants and

herbs; this is where Jayson was first introduced

to the benefits of natural healing, holistic

awareness and Aromatherapy.

Growing up in Puerto Rico, music was

also a big part of Jayson’s life with his father

ation and professionalism.

“We care for each of our clients; we have

people’s lives in our hands. If we are working

with someone who has an illness, before

we start the massage therapy we will make

sure that the therapy isn’t contraindicated,

we ask important questions in our consultation

for medical facts like allergies, recent

surgery, injury or prior accidents. Clients

will benefit from our continuous education;

we want to help people,” exclaimed Jayson.

Massage therapists find an inner reward in

being able to help people through massage.

“We care for their wellbeing. It’s fulfilling

when you see that you are creating positive

results in someone’s life,” said Jayson.

Jayson’s clients appreciate him and My

New Owner Determined to Preserve

Historic Clint Moore Home

{By Rich Pollack

As a young man, Blaine Minton used to jog by the

historic house at 1420 North Swinton Avenue – known

as the Clint Moore House – and think about living there.

“It was always a dream of mine,” he said.

That dream came true in April when Minton,

a senior vice president of wealth management

for Merrill Lynch, purchased the home.

“This place is magical,” he said. “It’s almost

like Tara from “Gone with the Wind.”

It was not just the property’s beauty,

however, that led Minton to buy the house,

built in 1925, that had been home to pioneer

farmer Clint Moore and has often been referred

to as “Delray Beach’s White House.”

It was also the chance to preserve a piece

of Delray Beach history, one that is an integral

part of North Swinton Avenue’s historical


“I’ve seen too many of these homes

knocked down,” Minton said. “This is a oneof-a-

kind place and preserving it will really

help Delray. You have tremendous history

here. Who doesn’t want to keep that?”

of Georgian Colonial style – is never torn

down, Minton has enlisted the support of

the Delray Beach Preservation Trust in requesting

that the home be designated by the

city at a local historical site.

At the same time, he is planning major

renovations, including restoration to the

6,177 square-foot home, which sits on close

to two acres in the heart of the city. All of the

changes, including additions and a new pool

– a replica of one from a turn of a century

Chicago home – will be in the rear.

“You’ll still see the amazing historic house

from Swinton Avenue,” said Minton, who

will be living in the home with his 8-yearold

daughter Madysen. “We’re just going to

make it more livable for today’s families.”

The extensive renovations he is doing with

the help of local architect Roger Cope – who

specializes in restoring historically valuable

houses – as well as architect David Frank and

interior designer Tiffany Woolley, illustrates

that major improvements can be made to older

homes that receive the historic designation.

“I like to combine the old and the new,”

says Minton, 39, who previously renovated

a home just a few blocks away.

Minton’s efforts to preserve the home are

being praised by many in the city.

“This home and its property embodies

the character of our historic Swinton Avenue,”

said Delray Beach Vice Mayor Jordana

Jarjura. “By Mr. Minton seeking to designate

it, he will be protecting it for many generations

to enjoy.”

66 January 2017 |

Built by LeRoy T. Hirth, the Clint Moore

house is believed to be one of the last remaining

Georgian Colonial-style homes in

South Palm Beach County. Described as

a jewel in Delray Beach, the house is on a

plantation-like setting with a huge Royal

Poinciana in the middle of the front yard.

Over the years, the property has not only

been used as the backdrop for films and

television shows but was also the site of a

few weddings.

Clint Moore, believed to be the first person

to farm west of U.S. Highway 441, purchased

the home in 1929 for $25,000 and

lived there with his wife and five children

until his death in 1948. The family stayed in

the home until the 1950s when it was sold

to Paul and Eleanor Gringle.

The home was later owned by Marjorie

Ferrar, former director of the Downtown Development

Authority and Delray Beach Marketing

Cooperative, and her husband, Joe.

For its newest owner, the Clint Moore

House is the perfect place to add modern

touches to a historic home while still preserving

its value.

“This is the perfect opportunity to build

on a dream,” Minton said.

House features wood floors, a traditional staircase and fireplace

It’s hard to get people to agree on things – especially now.

We can’t seem to agree on political points, eating habits,

cultural norms or child rearing. But when it comes to oral

surgery everyone is in total agreement – Dr. John Pasqual

is the best maxillofacial surgeon in town.

Though I have been blessed to sit in a

chair opposite the doctor as opposed to being

in front of him, his patients have all had

similar experiences.

“Dr. Pasqual is the best. His staff and follow-up

was impeccable. He called to check

on us at the end of the day to make sure everything

was OK. I highly recommend him.”

“My experience with Dr. Pasqual and his

staff was more than satisfying. The extraction

of my molar tooth was accomplished

quickly, professionally and painless. I would

recommend him to family and friends.”

The stellar reviews go on endlessly – and

the reason is simply that Dr. Pasqual has the

treated as such. We understand undergoing

surgery can be a stressful event. My team and

I are committed to minimizing stress,” said the

Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon.

Dr. Pasqual specializes in dental implants,

dental extractions, pathology (tumors and

cysts), facial trauma and reconstructive surgery.

His work has been lauded from coast

to coast (patients come from out-of-town

to see him) because of his excellent training

and experience.

He graduated from University of Pittsburgh

School of Dental Medicine and did a

four-year surgery residency at Case Western

Reserve University MetroHealth Medical

Center. He also did externships in Oral &

Maxillofacial Surgery at University of Pittsburgh

Medical Center, Montefiore University

Hospital and at the University of Texas

Health Sciences Center in San Antonio.

Dr. Pasqual completed a fellowship in anesthesia

at Case Western Reserve University,

MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, is

a Diplomat of the International Congress of

Oral Implantologists in South Florida and

the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial

Surgery. He also won The Brody Award

for clinical excellence and has published in

numerous journals and abstracts.

But that is only part of his legend and legacy. It turns out that

Dr. Pasqual is the son of an oral surgeon (Harry), his brother is

an oral surgeon (Paul) and his uncle Robert is an oral surgeon.

To top that off his mother Roberta has a PhD in anesthesiology

and his brother Ron (who manages the office) is a Certified Senior

Financial Advisor.

When it comes to passion and medical expertise the apple

does not fall far from the tree. “My standards are the same as Dr.

Pasqual’s. We make sure all of our patients are treated with the

utmost care and the staff makes sure everyone is welcomed and

taken care of,” said Ron, who has the same warmth as his brother.

That could be the reason for their exponential growth since

the day they opened the doors almost six years ago. “The practice

grows 20 percent each year,” said Dr. Pasqual, whose wife

Nicole was the Chair Woman for the recent Woman of Grace

Luncheon for Bethesda Hospital.

Not only has this practice grown through word of mouth, but

physicians and dentists from out of town also refer patients

to Dr. Pasqual. They know he has excellent qualifications, a

state-of-the-art operating room with the same sterilization

techniques and general anesthesia offered at hospitals. “I have

always been interested in the artistic aspect of dentistry and enjoy

interacting with patients. I love what I do.”

You bet he does. And so do others. That is why Dr. Pasqual is

on the faculty at University of Florida, Temple University and is

an attending physician at Bethesda hospital.

Not only do the accolades and excellent reviews pour in like

rain in July, there is another clientele that Dr. Pasqual has been

tending to. But he keeps their names close to the vest. “It is surreal

for me to see entertainers that I paid to see when I was a teenager

sitting in my chair for treatment. You might see them on TV but

when they’re here, they’re very unassuming and non-demanding.”

The good news is that everyone who comes to see Dr. Pasqual

is treated like a star. That’s the way it is with his practice and for

those who work there.

Everyone who comes agrees. “I have had two wisdom teeth

removed by Dr. Pasqual. The staff was very professional and

friendly and Dr. Pasqual is a real gentleman who makes you feel

at ease while performing extractions. He is a great oral surgeon.”

Delray Beach The Leader in Luxury Global Real Estate

By nicol jenkiNS

From Dubai to China to Delray Beach,

Engel & Völkers, Delray Beach brings the world

together in a truly international connection.

Lenny Felberbaum and Leanna Fruin, the

new owners of Engel & Völkers in Delray

Beach, credit their success that the company

is the only true international Real Estate

firm in the area.

“With 700 offices in 40 different countries,

we are in every major luxury market

in the world,” said Lenny Felberbaum.

Exclusivity, competence and passion are

the core values shared by all 6,000 Engel

& Völkers real estate advisors and are the

driving force behind the growth and success

of the unique brand.

“We are a global lifestyle brand providing

high quality services for those seeking

to buy and sell real estate. We distinguish

ourselves by providing our clients with exceptional

service and support,” said Lenny.

“Our style of doing business originates from

our early success as a luxury property agency.

We maintain the same standards of quality

and service in everything we do.”

“We want to offer our sellers the opportunity

to connect with international buyers,”

said Leanna.

Lenny added, “We have the ability to market

all over the world, within our organization

and through different media outlets

and websites that our company provides.”

Along with Delray Beach, Engel & Völkers

has 22 offices in Florida, and has doubled the

North American presence to 104 shops coast

to coast including Vancouver, Toronto and

Montreal. They also market their breathtaking

homes at luxurious events such as

local tennis tournaments, polo matches,

the Cannes Film Festival, the Monaco Yacht

Show and the US Open tennis tournament.

Both Lenny and Leanna have over 60

years of experience in helping their clients

find their dream homes and successfully

assisting in selling their properties for top

dollar. They decided to make Engel & Völkers

home because the brand has helped to

grow their business and market their clients’

properties. The owners describe their

method of selling luxury Real Estate as authentic,

driven, and innovative - and they

believe Delray Beach is the perfect location

for your new home or investment property.

“Since opening the shop in Delray Beach,

we have seen an influx of international buyers,”

says Leanna.

“The town of Delray Beach has a lot of

positive publicity in local and travel magazines

and publications. It was named the

most fun small town in America. Also, because

property values in Miami Beach are

at such high levels, Palm Beach County is

much more affordable for luxury buyers,”

added Lenny.

70 January 2017 |

Engel & Völkers in Delray Beach is looking

for experienced Real Estate agents to

help grow their successful team. They are

a boutique Real Estate firm with 13 agents

who are highly educated, knowledgeable

and successful in the field.

“Our brand is very well known among

the well traveled, high net worth individual

and in the luxury market. Because of what

we offer that sets us apart. We have access

to the global buyers that most offices don’t

have the reach and access to,” stated Lenny.

Stop by the Grand Opening of Engel &

Völkers’s Delray Beach office at 900 East Atlantic

Avenue Suite 14. The event will take

place in mid January and offer food, wine

and champagne.

Waxing doesn’t have to be a painful experience. Instead of sneaking

out the door embarrassed with a red face, at European Wax Center

in Delray Beach customers strut out feeling glamorous.

Franchisee Amy Cropper says, “Waxing is glamorous and painless here at Delray Beach EWC”

waxing techniques prep your gorgeous skin

before and after each treatment, ensuring

the most comfortable experience possible.

Step one is Cleanse. The pre-wax cleanser

removes makeup, oil or lotion from your

skin. Step two is Protect. Next, they apply

pre-wax oil to ensure the wax adheres to

pesky hairs and not your skin. Step number

three is Get Your Wax On. Using their unique

Comfort Wax, they gently remove the hair

for a virtually painless experience. The last

step is Rejuvenate. Last, they pamper your

skin with either their Smooth Me Ingrown

Hair Serum (for body) or Renew Me Restoring

Serum (for face).

Once you walk in the door, you will feel

at ease in their glamorous shop. The knowledgeable

staff greets you with a smile and

then you will receive a 5-star waxing treat-

Unlike other waxing centers, European

Wax Center, located in Delray Place shopping

center, focuses on everything, from

head to toe. EWC is known for the shaping

and contouring of eyebrows as well. The

Wax and Products are known to be used for

anyone with sensitive skin, as well as for the

comfort of waxing. They offer a variety of

waxing options for her and for him, including

eyebrows, bikini, face, chest, underarms,

Amy Cropper.

Come in to European wax and test any of our products on the shelves

ment in one of their private rooms. European Wax Center was

founded a decade ago on the belief that all of us deserve beautiful,

gorgeous skin by not concealing who we are, but by having

the courage and confidence to reveal our natural, beautiful skin.

All of European Wax Center’s highly trained and experienced

staff are also Estheticians. Their wax has a specially designed

patent and ingredients that no one else has. Eyebrow shaping,

highlighter, powder, liners, the perfect groomer brush, contouring,

what all the hype is about and come in for a free eyebrow, bikini

or underarms waxing session as a first time guest. Waxing lasts

approximately 3 to 6 weeks, depending on your hair growth.

“Our waxing salon is a high-end waxing salon without the high

prices. Our customer service is exceptional. Everyone who works

here is fun, positive and eager to please,” said Amy, adding, “I

wanted to help people feel more beautiful and the customer service

of European Wax Center always sets us apart from the rest.”

Wax specialist Kristyn Young says her customers praise the

products and customer service offered at European Wax Center.

“I hear a lot of positive things because the products that we use

help to maximize the results. We only use ingredients that help to

calm and soothe all skin types, including our Skin Exclusive Comfort

Blend Wax which has Roman Chamomile, Aloe Vera, Vitamin

E, English Cucumber, and Mediterranean Sea Kelp. Also our wax

pulls from the root of the hair,” said Kristyn. “At European Wax

Center, we specialize in eyebrows, it is not an add on service.”

Customers say that they have seen amazing results from European

Wax Center.

“I’ve been going there for 9 months, and I’ve had great results.

I have never been burned or hurt; they are good at making you

feel comfortable and at following procedures. I go for an eyebrow

wax about every three weeks and the more I go, the less hair I

get. I always have a great experience with their staff. They are always

smiling. I would recommend European Wax Center in Delray

Beach to anyone,” said customer Nicole Goss, who also brings

her husband and children for the waxing experience.

European Wax Center wants their customers to walk in and

Soul Mate


Sea Quest

Offers Unique Couples Therapy

By Nicol jenkiNS

photos by melissa korman

{In every relationship, couples may experience rough waters along the way

and that is the time when couples can benefit most from therapy. Even

couples that think their relationship is okay, can often be enriched and

deepened by learning new communication skills.

Unlike an intimidating office environment,

Soul Mate Connection offers a

unique opportunity for couples to navigate

to a new, healthier relationship. Instead of

coming to an office, the couple will relax

on Carmella, a 58-foot sailing yacht on the

76 January 2017 |

beautiful waters of Palm Beach. During the

getaway couples will be immersed in intensive

therapy. A 15 foot Herreshoff 12.5 sailboat

and a 14-foot motorized dinghy are

available for side excursions. In this relaxing

but intensive environment, a couple can

Gerda, Richard, and First Mate Mamba

radically shift their way of thinking about

their relationship. Couples will spend their

nights on Carmella and enjoy delicious cuisine

prepared by Carmella’s chef.

This creative course gives couples a

chance to have a truly effective transformational

experience. Two couples will receive

8 hours of intensive therapy in just 3 days,

which would normally take 2 months of office

visits. They will also have a chance to enjoy

the option of water sports, fine cuisine,

and alone time. Gerda Anna Muyen LCSW,

a licensed psychotherapist, will create a

therapeutic approach tailored to the client’s

needs. She has over 20 years of experience

working with individuals, couples, and families.

In the first 10 years of her career she

worked as a child therapist. This experience

was crucial to her seeing how childhood

patterns survive and cause stress in adult

relationships. She is an EFT trained couples

therapist and has her office in Delray Beach.

“We marry our childhood problems. We

are attracted to our spouse because of these

Calming Rough Waters

issues, but inevitably this will trigger conflict, and the couple

ends up in a “survival dance”. Once they understand each other’s

childhood experiences, the partners are better able to see

how they are affecting their current relationship,” said Gerda.

After studying and practicing different therapy methods,

Gerda has come to favor Emotional Focus Therapy. During

sessions the couples will create a deeper connection by

looking into each other’s eyes, exploring their childhood, discussing

their dreams for the relationship, and “visiting” each

other’s worlds.

They discover that the perception of their relationship is

much more colored by their own childhood experiences and

the couple learns to communicate and create relational maturity.

From the “fight and flight” reactive behavior, the couple

learns how to become more responsive and empathetic to each

other’s sensitivities.

The Soul Mate Connection has soothed the rough waters for

couples. The following are two such testimonials:

“We wanted to thank you for our amazing weekend. It truly

was filled with relaxation, love, and learning. We learned and

loved learning about reconnecting and tools to use every day. We

loved experiencing the sailboat and just having fun. We enjoyed

both of you and want you to know how fulfilling it was! Thank

you again for your hospitality, incredible knowledge and a weekend

that we will always remember,” said Brad and Yvonne.

“My partner and I have a great relationship and I was a bit

concerned that this course wouldn’t be for us. Still, I was lured

by the sailing and the organic food, and weekend just for us.

The seminar aboard Carmella exceeded my expectations. Professional

therapist, charming, friendly, knowledgeable captain,

fabulous food, beautiful boat, and amazing environment

to learn and connect. I highly recommend this course for any

couple regardless of where they are in their relationship,” said

Barbara and Steve.

Both Gerda and Richard find an inner reward in being able to

help couples build healthier relationships.

“For me it’s a pleasure to watch the transformation from the

beginning to the end of the weekend. The results are so visible:

the couples are more affectionate and become better listeners,”

said Richard.

Come take your relationship in a better direction on Carmella.

Non-Surgical Options for

Looking Younger

{Aging gracefully sounds good until it actually

happens to you. Neuromodulators and fillers

offer the opportunity to look 5-10 years

younger without using surgery or altering the

natural appearance of your face.

Neuromuscular Modulators

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are neuromuscular

modulators that reduce the frown lines

between the brows, wrinkles in the forehead,

and wrinkles around the eyes. They are naturally

occurring proteins which safely relax the

muscles in which they are placed. This is done

in a way to keep your natural expression and

features but reduce wrinkling. It takes just a

few minutes and can last 3-4 months.

Injectable Collagen Stimulators


Fillers are injectable collagen stimulators

If you fill in front of the ear, it can lift the

New Advances in Cosmetic Dermatology

In the last few years almost all of the companies producing injectables

started to add a numbing agent to the fillers that significantly

reduces the need for additional pain relief, though topical numbing

cream and dental blocks can also be used.

Additionally, over the past few years a new tool for injection has

come onto the market that causes less bruising. It is called a canulla

and it looks like a needle except the tip has a blunt end and is not

sharp. A needle is used to puncture the skin but then the cannula is

inserted. Since the cannula has a blunt end it is much less likely to

cut through blood vessels and cause bleeding under the skin which

is what causes the bruising.

The most recent non-surgical advances over the past year are fat

dissolvers and dissolvable thread lifts. Kybella, an injectable fat dissolver,

is FDA approved to reduce fat under the chin (also called a

double chin). Multiple treatments are needed, however there is no

downtime beyond possible minimal swelling and bruising.

Silhouette Lift and Nova PDO are both dissolvable thread lifts

that are also collagen stimulating. They are inserted along the jawline,

cheeks, and neck in order to lift areas of sagging skin. While

they do not achieve the results of surgery, the benefits are very limited

downtime with only the slight possibility of minimal bruising

and swelling. The results last for 6-18 months.

Oxygen Rescue Care

Centers of America

A powerful method of having people overcome their disabilities

By Martin LenkowskY

photos by melissa korman

{It’s nothing out of the ordinary for Raymond Cralle, a registered physical

therapist, to receive a phone call or text message from superstar NFL

players, military leaders, or even multi-billion dollar industry executives.

However, one thing’s for certain; each

and every message shares the same common

denominator: words of deepest gratitude

for the new lease on life Cralle has afforded


Cralle’s office, located at 525 NE 3rd

Ave in Delray Beach, is not your ordinary

physical therapy and rehab center; it’s better

known as a hyperbaric oxygen therapy

(HBOT) facility. Cralle, who specializes in

neuro-rehabilitation as well as sports-injury

rehab and has been practicing physical

therapy for 40 years, is a world-renowned

expert in administering HBOT to both

adults and children suffering from myriad

80 January 2017 |

injuries and illnesses.

A former Vietnam-era Marine Corps veteran,

Cralle has done extensive work with

disabled veterans showing positive results.

He’s treated many former special forces

soldiers suffering from repeated “blast exposure,”

including Navy Seals. “They get

so impaired,” he said. “There’s something

unique about blast exposure. It’s different

than any other type of injury.”

He said the HBOT he provides - along

with standard physical therapy when needed

- has shown remarkable results. “Within

40 treatments they have massive changes

in their cognition,” he said, adding blast

exposure injuries along with the resulting

post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

takes its toll on veterans. “Twenty two to

25 veterans a day are killing themselves.

The main reason is blast exposure, especially

with the special operations (OPS)

guys,” Cralle said.

Thus far, he’s helped many of these veterans

improve their cognitive function and

return to normal productive lives. “We’re

hell-bent to show we can help people,” he


Cralle has been invited to address veterans

groups in Florida and Washington D.C.

“I’m the only center in the U.S. being paid

by the V.A.,” he said. “I’m an old Marine. I

want this available to soldiers. A lot of my

work for veterans is pro bono.”

HBOT is also administered by Cralle to

sports figures. “I treat high-level athletes

with hyperbaric therapy,” he said. “We get

pretty high profile patients from all around

the world,” he said, showing this writer a

“thank you” text message he had received

from a well-known, Pro-Bowl, NFL wide


With increasing scrutiny these days by

both the NFL and the media on the large

number of concussions suffered by football

players, Cralle points to HBOT as a valuable

tool. “If hyperbaric oxygen therapy is given

within three hours post injury,” he said,

“you limit the damage of a concussion.”

And how does HBOT work? As Cralle explains,

hyper means “above,” and “ baric”

means pressure. When administered this

type of therapy, a patient is given 100 percent

oxygen under an amount of pressure

Charles Barreca Certified Hyperbaric Tech Discuss operations

for a prescribed period of time and number of treatments. A

common dose is 20 to 40 treatments.

“By administering oxygen under pressure, you push more of

it into plasma, the water part of blood,” he said. “That increases

the concentration of oxygen being received by the body. The

patient then produces their own more virile stem cells. This is

the only non-invasive way to get more virile stem cells.”

New virile stem cells provide powerful anti-inflammatory

as well as anti-aging benefits for the body. Cralle, a very tall

(6-foot-6), spry, young-looking 75-year-old has administered

hyperbaric oxygen therapy to himself, his wife, and his children.

“And I have no aches or pains,” he said.

Traditionally, hospitals utilize HBOT as a method of wound

care. Cralle does not treat wounds at his facility, because he

does not want to run the risk of spreading infections.

“I’m using hyperbaric oxygen in an off-label way,” he said.

He treats athletic, neurological injuries and illnesses, including

traumatic brain injury, strokes, Parkinson’s and multiple


Near drowning accidents are a tragic, not uncommon occurrence

here in Florida, and Cralle said he treats many of these

patients whose families were warned their chances of recovery

were nil. “They were told they should be organ donors,”

Cralle said, “and now many are functioning normally. I have

a powerful method of having people overcome their disabilities.”

Because HBOT is considered a relatively new method of

treatment, it has only been approved by Medicare – and some

insurance companies - for fourteen impairments. Cralle says

many of his patients are self-paying. Treatments start at $250

each, and go down to $210 depending on the number of treatments.

Packages of 10, 20, 30, or 40 treatments are offered.

The office provides free consultations.

NEAL deJesus

Fire Chief Of Delray Beach Fire Rescue

By Diane Feen


Photo by melissa korman

Three’s a charm for Neal deJesus.

The 34-year veteran of Fire Rescue and Emergency Medical

Services is on his third round as Fire Chief of a major city in Florida.

The six-foot head of the Delray Beach Fire Department

got an early start. At the age of 18 he was as a firefighter

in Sarasota County and from there he headed to

Coral Gables. His rise through the ranks was as impressive

as his physical stature and diplomatic excellence.

“I was a Firefighter Paramedic, Driver Engineer,

Lieutenant Captain, Battalion Commander, Division

Chief, Assistant Chief and Deputy Fire Chief before

I retired as Fire Chief,” said the imposing master of

leadership and discipline.

This litany of accomplishments is nothing compared

to the rest of Chief deJesus’s titles and affiliations.

Though too numerous to mention (it would take

a horse and wagon to collect titles and organizations)

his presence and policies rival those you see on stage

and the silver screen.

After retiring in 2006 Chief deJesus became a City

Commissioner and President of The Diversified Group

Consulting. But it wasn’t long before he got the itch to

return to the roots of his passion. “I became the Fire

Chief and Executive Director of the Broward Sheriff’s

Office Fire Rescue and Emergency Services.” Though

he retired from this lofty position in 2013, his foot

was firmly planted in organizations, committees and

leagues that guarantee excellence in safety, efficiency,

legislation, training and education.

Life changed again for this fearless fighter of justice

and safety last March. It was then that the City of Delray

hired him as their new Fire Chief. In his new position

Chief deJesus has taken the reigns as the top leader in

a battalion of soldiers whose only job is to keep us safe.

Whether it is a fire, medical emergency, equipment,

mentoring, education or day-to-day operations, it is the

Chief who makes sure everyone is in for a soft landing.

“I love leading and making a difference. We are professional

firefighters and paramedics. We must look professional,

act professional and know what we’re doing.

Would you want someone mediocre saving your life?”

The answer is clearly no. But you don’t have to worry

about mediocrity when Chief deJesus is in charge.

He’s the hero you see in the movies (carrying people

out of burning buildings) and the one you imagine

calling the shots in “Top Gun.”

But that’s not his primary motivation. Chief deJesus

doesn’t look for accolades or credits on screen - or

in life. He just does what comes naturally to him. “My

number one objective is to leave this place better than it

was yesterday. I ask myself, ‘is this going to make the organization

better or more effective? In this job you can’t

afford to be complacent – this game is for real.”

What’s more real (other than the chief’s goals and

dedication) is that there were 97 fires in Delray since

January. Whether it’s putting out flames from a car fire,

electrical fire or lightening the Chief is never far away.

He’s on call 24/7 and when he’s not in meetings or at

the station he’s visiting the other fire stations in Delray.

When most of us are counting sheep (or deep in slumber)

the Chief has one eye open. “I work seven days a

week and am always on call. I keep the phone next to

my nightstand and if it’s a police or fire related emergency

I get a call. Just last night I received six calls.”

When asked if the calls keep him up at night, the Chief

seems to go with the flow with little annoyance. Perhaps

it seems sanguine compared to his daily routine at the

station. A typical day starts with a 7am Command Staff

meeting, a Senior Management Team meeting, training

meeting, lunch with a city agency, afternoon meeting,

and may end with a city commission meeting. It’s not

unusual for him to have 11 meetings in one day.

But that doesn’t bother the Chief, whose passion is saving

lives, leading his team, and making sure those who

need his department’s services are well taken care of.

Chief deJesus’s career trajectory was partly influenced

by his father Michael who retired as a policeman

in NY and then moved the family to Hialeah. “My

father raised me with love, fear and respect (not necessarily

in that order).”

His theory of leadership is one of leading by example.

It’s not uncommon for him to respond to an

emergency (or fire) by working alongside his firefighters

and EMT staff. He knows a lot hangs on the balance

in his line of work and makes sure the buck stops


January 2017 |

with him. “To whom much is given much is

expected. I have a great responsibility. My

decisions have the potential to affect life and

death - I don’t take that lightly.”

When it comes to his lighter side domesticity

takes the lead. When asked what his greatest

accomplishment is, his core softens and

he smiles, “Being a good husband and father.”

Chief deJesus’s wife Lourdes is the love

of his life and he uncharacteristically melts

a little when he mentions granddaughter

Daniela and daughter-in-law Karey. He also

has two sons firefighter Anthony and Alec

(who’s in high school).

If you’re wondering if the Chief has any

time for casual acquaintances or leisurely

lunches you probably know the answer. But

when the time allows (or the wind moves

him) he and Lourdes hop on their beloved

motorcycle and head to places like South

Dakota or Key West to attend biking events.

But rest assured Chief deJesus is a man

on a mission - one that seems to rival those

on CSI or the pages of Jason Bourne. “Everything

needs a plan and a focus. The staff has

to know I care for them and the organization

behind them. It’s about making the organization

great for all, it’s not about me. If we

don’t succeed I don’t succeed.”

handformed Angus Blackened bacon burger with sweet potato waffle fries


Is Off The Charts With Great Food And Drink

By Diane Feen

Photos by melissa korman

{Neighborhood restaurants are becoming harder to find

these days. Not because we don’t like the genre, but because

time marches on and with it brings changes of all stripes.

Cajun Shrimp Tacos

Though gentrification is part of our culture,

we all yearn to come home (or feel at home).

That’s the sole reason that Off The Ave coowner

Adam Knoblock has spent so much

time making sure his restaurant seals in the

greatness of flavor with the greatness of a

small town feel.

There are no dainty chandeliers and no

pomp and circumstance. Clearly what you

see is what you get. And that’s a good thing.

There are nine large flat screen TVs that

bare it all – mostly sporting events. There’s

also a dart board in the back with wood

tables and reclaimed wood walls to seal in

a homey vibe.

Most of the customers are happy with this

laidback atmosphere and even happier that

you can get the Pittsburg Steelers score before

the time of day or weather report.

106 January 2017 |

Authentic Pittsburgh potato & cheese Pierogi

Meatball sub with housemade potato salad

That’s just the way Knoblock likes it. “We

created the quintessential small town feel

right in the heart of Delray Beach. Off The

Ave is warm and friendly with a comfortable

laidback vibe. People come up to me all the

time and say, ‘I love this place. I’m so glad I

found it, it’s a hidden gem,’” said Knoblock,

who changes the food and selection of craft

beers frequently.

Though change is often a good thing, there

is one thing that Knoblock refuses to compromise

on, and that’s fresh homemade (and

handmade) food. The burgers – one of the

crown jewels of this neighborhood haunt –

are hand formed and made with top quality

Angus Beef. They’re juicy and made fresh to

order so there’s no disputing the excellence of

this American culinary mainstay. Our favorite

is the half pound Blackened Bacon Blue Burger

made with fresh grilled bacon, crumbled

blue cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo.

If you’re not in a burger frame of mind

there are other menu items to choose from.

One of our favorites is the new Cajun Shrimp

Tacos. Made with corn tortillas and Cajun

spiced shrimp they are moored by a delicious

fresh Cabbage slaw, Green onions and

Cilantro drizzled with Chipotle ranch. The

Tacos are a new addition to the menu and to

the spirit of the vibe of OTA. You can also get

Pulled Pork or Blackened Mahi Tacos if the

flavors move you.

One of the newest items on the menu are

Flatbread Pizzas. Light and tasty they’re in

harmony with Knoblock’s decision to lighten

up the mood with Mexican-inspired delicacies.

We loved “The Greek,” with Feta Cheese,

Green Peppers, Red Onions, Kalamata Olives

and tomato with homemade Tzatziki sauce.

Each order comes with three tacos and are

filled with assorted flavors that waft through

your palate and perk up your senses. Try one

with a ice cold Craft Beer like Copper Point or

UFO and we guarantee you’ll be ushered into

a taste laden euphoria.

We did. We also highly recommend the

new cheese and potato Pierogis that are

flown in from Pittsburgh especially for OTA.

“I had people making Pierogis for me from all

over and the best ones were made in Pittsburgh.

It makes sense since we are the official

home to the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said Knoblock,

whose customer’s relish the team spirit

and sports themed camaraderie.

Lisa Goudreau is one OTA enthusiast. “This

is an amazing place! Everything I’ve had at

OTA has been amazing! The Burgers are the

best, Fries and Onion Rings are delicious and

the Cheese Steak is amazing. I get something

different every time and my boyfriend orders

the same thing - The Cuban Sandwich! You

must go, you will not be disappointed!”

If you ask Michelle Darrisaw what she

thinks you’ll hear the same exclamation

point enthusiasm. “I had eaten lunch already,

but when I saw the Meatball Sub with Cheese

it looked so delicious I couldn’t resist devouring

it right away. It made my mouth water it

was so good.”

Knoblock seems happy with all the accolades

bestowed upon his intimate barrestaurant

that beckons one to stop and hit

the refresh button. That’s why he added BBQ

Chicken Flatbread pizza and continues the

tradition of handmade Meatball Sandwiches

with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese

on a pan-roasted bun.

A commitment to quality is the hallmark

of Knoblock’s mission. “We specialize in

comfort food made fresh to order. Nothing

The Greek flatbread pizza

sits around here.”

Off The Ave also has a selection of healthy

Salads that come with ham, turkey, grilled

or blackened chicken, Mahi or blackened

Shrimp. The French Dip is also a favorite with

Swiss Cheese and Bourbon-braised onions

with horseradish sauce.

The Happy Hour - from 3 to 7pm - rings in

the cheers with half price nibbles, $5 Tito’s

Vodka, $4 Captain Morgan Rum, $1 off draft

and bottled beers, and $6 Svedka Vodka.

They also have 14 Craft Beers that change

with the season.

There’s also a new dessert that will peak

your palate – The S’more Lava Cake. This indulgent

treat is made with Graham Cracker

Crust, Melted Marshmallow filling and Chocolate

Ganache with Ice Cream.

If you’re looking to bask in the Florida sunshine

and watch the reverie of travelers from

near and far sit at one of their five outdoor

tables. It’s a great way to meet new folks or

celebrate with your Besties.

If you want to hunker down in an intimate

neighborhood restaurant-bar that welcomes

your persona and cheers your sports

proclivity, stop by Off the Ave and enjoy the

fare and fanfare.

Spinach Quiche

{With temperatures at their coldest across the USA, now is the ideal

time for hale and hardy vegetables like spinach. Don’t be afraid to

get hot and heavy with yours: spinach is one of the only vegetables

that is actually more nutrient-rich after it has been cooked.

ingredients (makes 4 servings)


• 1 ready-made pie crust

• 3 tablespoons butter

• 1 small onion, chopped

• 1 cup frozen chopped spinach,

thawed and drained

• 1 garlic clove pressed

• 6 eggs

• 1 cup milk

• 2 cups shredded colbymonterey

jack cheese

• salt and pepper

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Press pie crust into 9” pie pan, and pre bake crust for 10 minutes,

then set aside. Sautee onion, garlic, and spinach in butter until onion is soft - add salt and pepper

to taste - set aside. In medium mixing bowl - whisk together the eggs and milk. Spread shredded

cheese in bottom of pie crust. Spread spinach mixture over cheese in pie crust. Pour egg and milk

mixture over spinach and cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. If crust starts to get too

brown - cover edges with tin-foil. Slice & serve.

MISC ║ ask the petxpert

As the 2017 arrives, many of us make

New Year resolutions to achieve

a more organized, happier and

healthier lifestyle for ourselves.

We’re so caught up in our own hectic

routines, we sometimes fail to see that our

pets can get also get into a slump.

Let’s analyze the situation as an advocate

for your pet.

Do you work all day? Is your pet left at

home alone for numerous hours to fend

for themselves? Some are left to roam

about the house freely. Some are restricted

to a crate.

When you arrive home, do you notice

their greeting of wagging tails, unconditional

love and anxious enthusiasm for

parental acknowledgement? Remember

they have been sedentary in your absence

and now it’s their time! Show them the

love and attention that they deserve.

We all love our furry four-legged babies

however; even when we think we are doing

the best we can for them, there can be

inconspicuous signs of neglect.

The ramifications can be detrimental to

their health. Is your pet obese, have liver

and kidney problems, behavioral problems

and other health challenges? How

did they get that way?

ask the petXpert

It’s a New Year…shouldn’t our

PETs deserve a fresh sTART too?

Along with your love, all pets need to

have regular physical activity and a regimen

of proper nutrition. Once you apply

this, these creatures of habit will adapt

more easily than a human. This can actually

enable pet owners to stick to their

own resolutions for themselves as well for

a healthier lifestyle.

Walking or running with your pet and

games of fetch are a must. Proper grooming

is also very important, specifically for

the eyes, ears, teeth, and nails.

Healthy treats, along with naturally unprocessed

foods, herbs and clean air and

water are essential.

The main message here is that disease

free longevity starts with a healthy lifestyle.

We only have control of our air within

our confines via purification. Same is

true of our water. The greatest impact we

have is through the foods we feed our pets.

We control it! Let’s make the best of it.

Let’s play mad scientist. For 1-4 weeks,

try putting out 3 entrees for your pet,

what they currently eat, cooked real food

and raw real food. Did their eating habits

change? If so, what food did they migrate

to? Remember that all these foods should

be at the same temperature (room).

All creatures including us and our pets

These pets are available for adoption

are anatomically and physiologically

unique. When we examine these characteristics,

it gives us the insight as to how the

body will perform and the types of foods

that are required. Our pet dogs and cats

are carnivores. Their digestive systems do

not produce enzymes that break down carbohydrates

and metabolize them properly.

The inappropriate foods cause the body

to treat this digestion in an unnatural way

that creates challenges like diabetes, pancreatitis,

allergies and gastric issues.

Let us help you get your pets from challenged

to healthy and then on to optimal.

There are many articles in the archives of

this magazine with healthy tips and subjects

Get Those Girls Up

The Importance of a Sports Bra and Other Etiquette at the Gym

By Sherri Parisi Richie


A healthy lifestyle can start at the gym. Lifting weights, taking a spin

class, walking on the treadmill or practicing Pilates are excellent ways

to get fit, feel better and of course, look better too.

With an abundance of gyms around town,

there is a right one for every fitness level. January,

spring, and the fall have noticeable increases

in gym membership as new converts attempt

to tackle the bulge. Unfortunately, for seasoned

gymrats and newbies alike, many gym goers don’t

follow basic gym etiquette. This lack of etiquette

can make working out at the gym an uncomfortable

experience. Following these seven guidelines

will have you sweating in style without compromising

your manners.

A Sports Bra is a Must for Every Boob

A cup, B cup, C cup, double D cup. It doesn’t

matter what your cup size is because if you are

a woman and have boobs, a sports bra is a gym

necessity. Sure those cute, fitted athletic tops with

built-in bras provide support, but not enough

support for the gym. When you work out on a

machine, your boobs jiggle. As you bounce up and

down in a step class, so do your boobs. When you

bend over to lift weights off the rack, your boobs

hang over too. Even surgically-enhanced bosoms

need a sports bra at the gym. Exercise can be hard

on your body and that goes double, no pun intended,

for your “girls”. You’ll exercise more comfortably

in a properly fitted sports bra and avoid

flashing everyone at the gym. And while on the

subject, beware of the white peep show. A sweaty

white sports bra and top may reveal more than

you want at the gym.

Where’s Your Towel? You Left a Quarter

of Your Body Weight on the Equipment

Picking dirty and wet towels off the floor was

something your mother probably taught you

many years ago. Cleaning up after yourself was

most likely another maternal gem of wisdom. The

same lesson applies at the gym. Have a towel to

sit on while using machines or benches. And for

goodness sake, wipe your sweat away when done.

While a quick swipe of a towel won’t do much for

actually killing germs, at least the equipment

won’t be sopping wet for the next user.

Pipe Down - I Don’t Want to Hear

Your Conversation

Yes, we know, you are a Very Important Person.

And yes, you must take that work call while

pumping away on the elliptical machine. But must

you blather on loudly so all the rest of us have no

choice but to hear you? Here’s a quick and easy

tip - if you have an important phone call to conduct,

please conduct it outside or out of earshot.

No one else cares whether you will be on the

webinar at 5 p.m. or on the next flight to Dubai,

not to mention that letting everyone know your

whereabouts could also be a safety risk. An even

easier fix to this etiquette faux pas is to leave your

phone off the gym floor. If you are not one of the

offending phone users at the gym, make sure you

aren’t an iPod blaster either. Music tastes vary

and the genius of earphones is that no one else

has to listen to what you’re listening to. So turn

the volume down if you notice the person next to

you singing along with your Metallica song.

Loud Grunts Don’t Help You

Lift Heavier Weights

Right along with loud conversations, another

gym annoyance is the “Grunter”. Every gym has

at least three or four grunters. You know the type.

They usually are lifting too much weight and letting

everyone in the building know about it as

they grunt, groan, huff and yelp their way through

their set. Here’s a novel idea - if the weight causes

you to break a blood vessel, lighten

your load, and lock your lips.

Keep Your Eyeballs to

Yourself Mister

It’s hard not to notice all the

toned and buff bodies around the

gym. Gym attire might not leave

much to the imagination, but even so,

it’s not polite to stare, ogle, or drool. Some

gymgoers might not be in the best shape,

but kudos to them for toughing it out and working

hard to get fit. Don’t stare at them either. Overtly

obvious ogling is uncouth. So just don’t do it.

Deodorant, Deodorant,

Deodorant and Soap Too

Oh my. When did it become okay to leave home

smelling like a sewer? Never, is the correct answer.

However, many people seem to think it is

acceptable to show up smelly because they will

soon be sweating it out at the gym anyway. If you

have eaten lots of garlic, drank too much beer the

night before, or recently had sex, you will smell

like it at the gym and doubly so once your pores

start working overtime. If in doubt of how bad

you may smell before working out, go ahead with

another application of deodorant or a quick, preworkout

shower, it won’t hurt.

Unless You’re Brad Pitt or a

Personal Trainer, Back Off

Lastly, when working out, it is best to keep

your fitness advice to yourself unless it has been

solicited. If you notice someone doing an exercise

wrong, get a trainer to point out the correct approach.

Most people don’t want to be pestered at

the gym and even if you offer advice with good intentions,

it may be taken the wrong way. So leave

the training to the certified trainers.
