happened in 1979 - so make sure you do not

miss this one! The eclipse countdown will

begin at 1:25, the total eclipse will be at 2:57,

Like Lobster? Well you’re in luck! The Station House Restaurant has a monthly All-You-Can-Eat Maine

your thing - they have many other dishes to tempt your taste buds. Read our Restaurant Review and

learn more about this great establishment.

Local entertainment is alive and well in downtown Delray. Old School Square has a full calendar with

something for everyone in August. A Dude Movie Night, an Art Walk, a Vodka Riot, Canvas & Cocktails...

Look inside for dates and times.

Our City Person this month is Jeannie Fernsworth. She is a visionary, a botanist, a community activist

and a co-founder of the Delray Beach Children’s Garden - to name a few of her accomplishments. Her

story is as colorful as the garden she cultivates. Let’s get to know this amazing woman that is doing

wonderful things in our All America Town!

I’m a true believer that success follows passion - there is nothing I love

more than living the coastal lifestyle and helping others do the same.

As a third generation real estate professional, originally from Maryland,

I received my undergraduate degree from Georgetown University

and a Master’s Degree in Real Estate from Johns Hopkins. After a stint

in advertising for global brands, I began my career in real estate in 2009

as an agent and owned a property tax appeal business. Having spent a

lot of time in South Florida over the past decade, I decided to become

a full-time resident 3 years ago - and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve

made. As a licensed Realtor ® here, I am dedicated to staying relevant on

the market. My commitment to professionalism and client satisfaction is

my #1 priority. My specialty is in-town residences. I also enjoy playing golf

(I’m a 1 handicap), practicing yoga, modern art and design, and exploring

everything Delray Beach has to offer. Whether it’s a quick question about

the neighborhood or a full discussion of the market for buying or selling

purposes, I’m here to help you.

By Darien Davies

Delray Under $50

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 August for $50 or less.

When I think of American adventures, I think American

muscle. Open road, convertible, scarf (naturally) and a

big, cherry car. August is American Adventures Month and

if you’re lacking the muscle, the Delray Marketplace has you covered.

Wednesday, August 16 is the Hot Florida Nights Car Cruise at

Delray Marketplace where you can enjoy classic cars and music as

you stroll around the shops and restaurants. This is the last event of

the three-month series so make sure you get a taste of what these

hot, classic cars are all about. The variety is exciting - you can see a

great mix of classic cars. The free event is held from 6 to 8 p.m. in

the corner lot to the far left of Frank Theaters so grab some friends

and make a night out of it. Many of the Marketplace restaurants offer

late-night happy hour and are ready to help you cross over the hump

of the week so you can welcome Friday with open arms. The Delray

Marketplace is located at 14851 Lyons Road. Visit

or call (561) 865-4613 for more information.

Beer: making living great since who cares when. College started

my love affair with this delicious beverage and I haven’t

looked back since. International Beer Day is Friday, August 4

and is the perfect time to peruse the Avenue and enjoy all the delicious

brews that are awaiting your gullet. If you want some homemade

brew, head to Saltwater Brewery where they make their beer

in-house and have more than 15 beers on tap. They’re well known

for their Sea Cow Milk Stout, Locale Pale Ale and the Screamin’ Reels

IPA, but they also have The Black Current, Peanut Butter Cookie

Sea Cow, Grapefruit Screamin’ Reels IPA, Accomplice Strawberry

Cider and more. Bring the dog, play some cornhole, kick back and

toast to the good life. If you are interested in sampling almost every

bottled beer under the flavor rainbow, head to Beer Trade Co. and

make yourself comfortable. They offer, what feels like, a few hundred

bottles of beer – and some on tap – and you are guaranteed

to make yourself crazy trying some familiar beers and some that

you’ve never seen before. They even have some of the most delicious

wings on the Avenue (the best accompaniment for beer) and plenty

of TVs so you can watch all your favorite sports games. It’s like being

in your living room but better! Have a fun beer day, just save one for

me. Saltwater Brewery is located at 1701 W. Atlantic Ave. Visit www. or call (561) 865-5373 for more information.

Beer Trade Co. is located at 145 N.E. Fourth Ave. Visit Beer Trade

Company on facebook or call (561) 808-7304 for more information.

If you’re down for mollusks town, clear the calendar for National

Oyster Day. Oysters aren’t my jam, but my sister, and millions

of other people, love these little guys. I appreciate that they’re

fresh, come with a plethora of flavor-enhancing toppings, and are

quick to eat, leaving more wine time. If you enjoy oysters, belly up

to City Oyster’s bar on Saturday, August 5 and go wild. City Oyster

features a rotating menu of at least six different types of oysters and,

If you ask any person on the planet, I bet they’d say that they

need a day to relax, sleep in, do nothing. Well, make that

happen for yourself today. Tuesday, August 15 is National

Relaxation Day and if you don’t want to indulge in a full blown

massage, treat your feet to some reflexology action at Foot Haven

Reflexology Bar. The space invites you to leave your stress,

worries and “noise” (as my husband calls it) at the door, and just

relax. You will start with an herbal detoxifying foot soak while

licensed therapists target any knots in your back and shoulders.

Once relaxed, you’ll lie back into super comfortable leather

recliner chairs, offered a comfy blanket if needed, and enjoy a

fabulous foot reflexology. They even give you a complimentary

glass of champagne, white or red wine, or hot tea, and it’s incredibly

enjoyable to the point that you won’t want to leave. If

you want to up the relaxation ante, you can add on a hot stone

massage, scrub or hot cucumber paraffin wax dip. The 55-minute

foot reflexology is only $39 and just an additional $10 for an

add on. Foot Haven Reflexology Bar is located at 247 S.E. Sixth

Ave., Suite 3. Visit or call (561)

330-4084 for more information and to book appointments.

Nothing says happiness to me like a delicious Bloody

Mary and brunch al fresco. August is Happiness Happens

Month so get ready for a fun event that will put the

Fun-day in Sunday. Old School Square is hosting the Bottomless

Bloody Mary and “Brunch” on a Stick event on Sunday, August

27, which is the last event in their Sizzlin’ Summer Social Series

in the Fieldhouse. Held from 1 to 3 p.m., you’re invited to

enjoy creative meals on a skewer that accompany each Bloody

Mary. Participating restaurants include Ceviche 401, Harvest

Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, Death or Glory, Pizza Rustica and

Lilo’s, so it’s a guarantee that you’re going to be privy to some

delicious and innovative food. The skewer design also pretty

much guarantees that you won’t have to choose between your

drink and your food, and you can probably even dance while

you eat. Hello happiness! There’s a bottomless Bloody Mary bar

and an array of sweets, cheese and fruit that you can also revel

in throughout the event. Tickets are only $45 and are all inclusive

(as well as very limited), so it’s a great deal for brunch and

fun with friends. The Old School Square Fieldhouse is located at

51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit or call (561) 243-

In Memoriam

Skip Sheffield

August 29, 1947 ~ July 20, 2017

Nobody knew more about music, arts

and culture in South Florida than our

friend Skip Sheffield.

He lived, breathed and wrote about the

arts since the late 1960s when he went to

work for the Boca News.

Over the years, he became a valuable contributor

to Atlantic Ave magazine and to other

arts publications in Florida.

We lost Skip suddenly last month. It was a

shock to his family, friends, readers and fans.

It just won’t feel the same without him in our


Skip has been part of the landscape in Delray

and Boca Raton for so long that he just

seemed like a permanent fixture--a bridge to

our community’s past who kept us apprised

of our present and often warned us about

our future if we lost what made our community

great in the first place.

He was a kind man. Quiet, understated,

without ego or pretense. In many ways, he

was a throwback to a simpler time when we

knew our neighbors, hung out at the same

bars and listened to the same local bands-

-some of which included Skip who was

a talented musician as well as a gifted

writer, reporter and critic.

Skip never got rich, but he lived a life

doing what he loved and in a place he

was passionate about.

That my friends is the definition of


And he was loved by all those

who had the good fortune to

meet him.

He was a gentleman, a smart

and committed journalist and

someone who appreciated the

little things in life.

He will be remembered always.

He’s a part of our history.

An important part.

May he rest in peace.

Like Stephen King? You are in luck.

The first installment of King’s eight-part

horror series “The Dark Tower” opens

nationwide Friday, August 4. Idris Elba

is Roland Deschain, The Gunslinger and

Matthew McConaughey is The Man in

Black. Lucas Hamilton is the kid trying

to make sense of it all. Nikolaj Aercel cowrote

the script and directs.

Don’t mess with Halle Berry when she

plays Karla Dyson, a young mom whose

son Frankie (Sage Correa) is taken forcibly

in “Kidnap.” Hell hath no fury like a mother

wronged. Luis Prieto directs.

The title says it all. “Detroit” recreates

the terrible summer of 1967, when Detroit,

Michigan descended into anarchy with the

worst riots in American history. John Boyega,

Anthony Mackie and Algee Smith star.

Kathryn Bigelow directs with her screenwriting

partner Mark Boal (“Hurt Locker,”

“Zero Dark 30”).

August 11

Spoiler alert: “Annabelle: Creation” is

a doll. Not just any doll but a devil doll.

When their daughter dies, a doll maker

and his wife invite a nun (Stephanie

Sigman) and several orphaned girls

into their home. David F. Sandberg

(“Lights Out”) directs this sequel

to the 2014 original.

“The Glass Castle” stars Naomi

Watts as an artistic mom,

Woody Harrelson as her alcoholic

husband and Brie Larson

as the daughter trying

to make sense of a family

squatting in an abandoned

building in the

Lower East Side of New

York. This is supposedly

a true story.

Enough with the sequels

already. “Nut

Job II: Nutty By

Nature” continues the adventures of Surly

the squirrel (Voiced by Will Arnett) and his

forest friends, who want to stop the mayor

from bulldozing their woods to create an

amusement park. Other voices are provided

by Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph,

Jackie Chan and Isabella Moner.

August 18

“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is a comedy

starring Ryan Reynolds as the bodyguard

and Samuel L. Jackson as the hitman. Just

to make things interesting, Salma Hayek

plays the hitman’s wife. Every action

movie needs a bad guy, and Gary Oldman

obliges as Vladislav Dukovich.

August 25

Remember Polaroid instant photos?

“Polaroid” stars Madelaine Petsch (“The

Curse of Sleeping Beauty”) as Bird Fitcher,

a high school loner who happens upon a

vintage camera. This camera is special. It

dooms the person who takes pictures with

it. Can Bird and her nubile coeds survive a

night with the haunted camera?

“The Life and Death of John Gotti” is

about the infamous gangster Gotti, known

as “The Dapper Don.” John Travolta plays

John Gotti and his real-life wife Kelley

Preston plays his wife Victoria. Keeping

it in the family, Ella Bleu Travolta plays

daughter Angel Gotti. Supporting players

are Stacey Keach, Lydia Hull, William De-

Meo and Spencer Lofranco. Kevin Connolly

(“The Notebook”) directs.

How about some inspiration in

the doldrums of summer? “All

Saints” is the true story of a

salesman-turned pastor Michael

Spurlock (John Corbett) who is

ordered to shut down a small

church. Instead he makes it a viable

Institution with the help of

willing Southeast Asians refugees.

Steve Gomer (“Barney’s Great Adventure”)


August 30

“Leap” is an animated dance

movie starring Elle Fanning as an

orphan girl who flees Brittany to

seek her fortune in Paris, where

she fakes her way into the Grand

Opera House. Other voices are

provided by Carly Rae Jepson

and Dane Dettaan. Eric Summer,

who actually is from

Brittany, France, directs.

The End of


The First Program to

Prevent and Reverse

Cognitive Decline

by Dale Bredesen

Released August 22, 2017

groundbreaking plan to prevent and

A reverse Alzheimer’s Disease that fundamentally

changes how we understand

cognitive decline.

Everyone knows someone who has survived

cancer, but until now no one knows anyone

who has survived Alzheimer’s Disease.

In this paradigm shifting book, Dale

Bredesen, MD, offers real hope to anyone

looking to prevent and even reverse Alzheimer’s

Disease and cognitive decline.

Revealing that AD is not one condition, as it

is currently treated, but three, “The End of

Alzheimer’s” outlines 36 metabolic factors

(micronutrients, hormone levels, sleep)

that can trigger “downsizing” in the brain.

The protocol shows us how to rebalance

these factors using lifestyle modifications

like taking B12, eliminating gluten, or improving

oral hygiene.

The results are impressive. Of the first

ten patients on the protocol, nine displayed

significant improvement with 3-6 months;

since then the protocol has yielded similar

results with hundreds more. Now, “The End

of Alzheimer’s” brings new hope to a broad

audience of patients, caregivers, physicians,

and treatment centers with a fascinating

look inside the science and a complete stepby-step

plan that fundamentally changes

how we treat and even think about AD.

The Other Girl

by Erica Spindler

Released August 22, 2017

Officer Miranda Rader of the Harmony,

Louisiana PD is known for her honesty,

integrity, and steady hand in a crisis—but

that wasn’t always so. Miranda comes from

the town of Jasper, a place about the size

of a good spit on a hot day, and her side of

the tracks was the wrong one. She’s worked

hard to earn the respect of her coworkers

and the community.

When Miranda and her partner are called

to investigate the murder of one of the

town’s most beloved college professors,

they’re unprepared for the brutality of the

scene. This murder is unlike any they’ve

ever investigated, and just when Miranda

thinks she’s seen the worst of it, she finds a

piece of evidence that chills her to the core:

a faded newspaper clipping about that terrible

night fifteen years ago. The night she’d

buried, along with her past and the girl

she’d been back then. Until now that grave

had stayed sealed…except for those times,

in the deepest part of the night, when the

nightmares came: of a crime no one believed

happened and the screams of the girl they

believed didn’t exist.

Then another man turns up dead, this

one a retired cop. Not just any cop—the

one who took her statement that night.

Two murders, two very different men, two

killings that on the surface had nothing in

common—except Miranda.

Paul McCartney

Ageless and Agile

It is hard to believe Paul McCartney is 75. The “Cute Beatle” is

eternally boyish and agile as ever, as he proved July 7 at American

Airlines Arena in Miami.

McCartney held forth for nearly three hours and 40 songs in

the warm Florida evening, accompanied by his band of 15 years:

guitarists Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray, drummer Abe Laboriel,

Jr. providing harmonies even higher than McCartney’s and Paul

Wickens on keyboards and guitars. McCartney is no slouch on

instruments. In addition to his signature Hofner violin bass, he

played left-handed acoustic and electric guitars and piano.

McCartney honored his late band mate John Lennon with “Here

Today” and George Harrison on ukulele with “Something.” Drummer

Ringo Starr, who is even older than McCartney at 77, was

honored with a rocking “Birthday.”

What the audience enjoyed most was McCartney’s reminiscences

of Beatlemania. Unlike some performers of a certain age, Mc-

Cartney does not resent his past successes, nor playing his greatest

hits yet once again. Fans got in abundance, starting with “A Hard

Day’s Night,” continuing with “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Letting Go”

from his wings incarnation. “Let Me Roll It” from the Wings era was

accompanied by a snippet from Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady.”

McCartney is known as the most sentimental Beatle, which he

brought out with the piano ballad “My Valentine” for his wife Nancy

(who happened to be in the audience).

No McCartney show would be complete without a theatrical

version of “Live and Let Die” from the James Bond movie, accompanied

by deafening pyrotechnics. But the most intimate moment

was McCartney’s “Blackbird” on acoustic guitar on a riser, recalling

the Civil Rights era. Paul McCartney is indeed a man for all

seasons. Long may he play.

John Mellencamp

Lights a Cherry Bomb

With Carlene Carter and Emmylou Harris at Mizner Park

John Mellencamp

John Mellencamp brought a slice of the American heartland of

Indiana to his concert June 25 to Mizner Park Amphitheater

in Boca Raton. As an appetizer he invited country music stars

Carlene Carter and Emmylou Harris as opening acts.

Carter is part of the Carter Family musical dynasty. Her mother

was June Carter, who married Johnny Cash. Her grandmother was

Maybelle Carter, matriarch of the clan.

“Let’s get this party started,” declared Carlene on the dot of

7 p.m., armed only with a jumbo acoustic guitar. She is not shy

about revealing personal details of her life. She is 61, has seven

grandchildren and is happily married (she hopes) for the fourth

time. In honor of her mother she performed a short version of

“Ring of Fire” as well as some of her originals.

Emmylou Harris is surely one of the most beautiful women

ever to grace the stages of country music. In fact she was a beauty

queen in her Birmingham, Alabama high school, in which she was

also the graduating class valedictorian. She acknowledged she

had a “really happy childhood.”

Harris brought her band of Red Dirt Boys, which is a reference

to her 2000 hit “Red Dirt Girl.” She played but a few favorites from

her substantial catalog, which has amassed 13 Grammy Awards

so far. For “Even a Cowgirl Sings the Blues” she brought out her

friend Carlene and two of Mellencamp’s prodigies, Lily and Madeleine

for background harmonies.

John Mellencamp is the polar opposite of a rock star. He keeps

it very direct and simple, like the songs he writes. He was promoting

his latest album, “Sad Clowns and Hillbillies,” and he played

several selections from that April, 2017 release, opening with

“Lawless Times.”

- is 65 now, but he looks much younger. He is proud to be

from a “Small Town,” and contemptuous of being labelled a

“Pop Singer.”

Seven songs in, his band left the stage and Mellencamp

strapped on an acoustic guitar.

“I wrote this when I was around 25 years old,” he drawled.

“You probably expect to hear it, so here it is.” He launched

into his 1982 No. 1 hit, “Jack and Diane.”

Leading ladies Carlene Carter and Emmylou Harris joined

Mellencamp on “My Soul’s Got Wings” on his latest album,

which is based on an old song by Woody Guthrie.

Playing to the back seats Mellencamp unleashed a volley of

hits including “Rain on the Scarecrow,” “Paper in Fire,” “Crumbling

Down” and the explosive “Cheery Bomb.” For a lovely

evening, the Heartland was alive and well in Boca Raton.

Keeping Chronic Ankle

Sprains Out Of Sports

Ankle sprain injuries are the one of

the most common injuries affecting

9 million people yearly. They account

for almost half of all sports injuries.

Although sprains can range from mild to severe,

most people do not realize just what it

entails to have an ankle sprain and treatment

options to better prevent reoccurrence.

An ankle sprain refers to tearing of the ligaments

of the ankle. Ligaments in general are those structures

that connect bone-to-bone. More than 80

percent of ankle sprains are a result of inversion,

or inward rolling, of the ankle. This occurs on the

lateral or outside part of the ankle at the ATFL or

anterior talofiblular ligament, which connects the talus

to the fibula and the CFL or calcaneofibular ligament,

which connects the fibula to the calcaneus below.

Patients typically complain of pain and ecchymosis or

bruising on the outside of the ankle. They may not be

able to weight bear.

The risk factors include a wide variety of activities

from basketball and jumping sports to slipping off the

sidewalk. It can happen in conjunction with an ankle

fracture, most commonly an avulsion fracture, or tearing

of the nearby tendons. Some people are predisposed

to ankle sprains. In people with a hindfoot varus, which

means that the general nature or posture of the heels

is slightly turned toward the inside, these injuries are

more common because it is easier to turn on the ankle.

In those who have had a severe sprain in the past, it is

also easier to turn the ankle and cause a new sprain

due to having instability. Those who have weak

muscles, especially those called the peroneals

which run along the outside of the ankle, may

be more predisposed. Diagnosis should include

determining the region and grade of sprain. If

necessary utilizing radiographs to rule out

concomitant fracture is advised.

The primary goals in treating

ankle sprains are

to restore or stabilize

joint movement,

eliminate pain and

swelling, eliminate fibrosis, progressively

strengthen the tissues and provide neurological

proprioceptive re-training to prevent

chronic injury of the same region. In the initial

stages of injury for 24-48 hours some at home

care tips follow the acronym PRICE: Protect by

bracing during activity, Rest by limiting weightbearing

activities, Ice for 20 minutes at a time,

Compression with bandages, and Elevation

of the foot above the head to allow lymphatic

drainage. Further treatment 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.

Recovery consists of transitioning

through an acute phase to a

rehabilitative phase allowing the

tensile strength of the tissues to

return in generally 6-8 weeks. By

facilitating proper rehabilitation

throughout the healing process,

healing time can be decreased and

chance for chronic injury is minimized.

Vanquish Your


As summer fades in South Florida, the zest for diet, exercise

and alluring shape only accelerates. “If I could just be one

size smaller,” is not reserved for swimsuits. We are a people

addicted to healthy, fit bodies and beautiful contours, and now,

those of us who pine for any easy fix to love handles, muffin tops

and man boobs have a resource that seems too good to be true.

The technology is called Vanquish, a completely non-invasive

procedure to annihilate fat cells using radio frequency.

Dermatology and Laser Medicine claim it as an enormous

breakthrough. There is no surgery involved and no needles are required;

in fact, the procedure is completely pain free. The machine

never even touches the patient’s skin. Deep tissue heating without

damaging skin or muscle effects measurable results in this FDA approved

approach to the destruction of fat cells. Results can be seen

after just four sessions of forty-five minutes each.

Vanquish fat melting sessions are controlled and comfortable.

The dermatologist will adjust the laser to hover over the areas of

the body to be treated, never touching the machine to the skin. The

heat produced from the laser will feel warm, never hot, and will

resemble the sensation of a heating pad on the belly. Sensors built

into the device “tune” the patient’s fat and customize the energy

required for each patient’s treatment session.

The science involved is simple. Once the fat cells have been

overheated, they die off and are filtered through the

lymphatic system, metabolized in the liver and then

excreted through urine. For this process to be effective,

patients are asked to drink plenty of water before

and after the procedure, aiding in the elimination of

dead fat. Some minimal redness may occur at the site

of the procedure, but swelling is extremely unlikely.

Patients are not reporting any contraindications.

They are losing two to four inches after four treatments

without changing their diets or increasing exercise.

Of course there are skeptics, but the ease of delivery

for Vanquish speaks bundles about its ability to

please patients. Unlike the other fat buster technologies

of the last thirty years, treatments don’t involve

downtime or discomfort for the patient. Liposuction,

while capable of eradicating larger volumes of

fat, requires anesthesia and surgery and sometimes

delivers uneven results. Ultrasound, in which a hand

piece is moved around the body to destroy fat with

deep-diving sound waves, generally requires pain medication.

Cryotherapthy, which freezes fat cells, does work, but is a slow

process for both the patient and the technician and requires a

significant time commitment. Vanquish, from all sides, seems to

be the fat busting venue of the future.

Vanquish is new, exciting and full of promise. Today it is eliminating

beer bellies and love handles.

Tomorrow it will reach to contour flabby arms and fatty necks.

From the point of view of the dermatologist, this is very “cool”

technology; from the point of view of the patient, this may be the

hottest technique on the planet for looking good.

health & beauty | Your Dental Health

By dr. craig spodak, dmd, pa

Don’t Fear the Dentist!

Don’t let dental

anxiety keep you

from having a

healthy smile.

Do you suffer from fear of the dentist? If so, you’re not

alone. As many as 40 million Americans share your fear,

with some 4 to 8 million so fearful that they avoid dental

visits all together. Sadly, avoiding the dentist leads to declining

oral health, generating greater fear and anxiety, continuing the

cycle of anxiety and avoidance.

The types of fear can range from minor anxiety to various

forms of psychiatric disorders, such as dentophobia (an inordinate

fear of dental treatment), aichmophobia (a pathological fear

of all sharp objects), or trypanophobia (an extreme or irrational

fear of needles). For others, their fear may be triggered by the

sights, sounds or smells of the dental office or the confines of the

dental chair, and an overall feeling of not being in control.

Regardless of fear’s form or ferocity, it’s difficult for people

to visit their dentist unless the pain becomes unbearable. This

pain probably could have been avoided with regular preventative

care, but it’s not too late to try and overcome your fears for the

sake of your health.

Sleep Dentistry

Genuine Sleep Dentistry is both fully tranquilizing and fully amnesiac,

allowing you to relax and not focus on the sights, sounds

and smells of the dental office.

Until now, though, most patients had to bear the high cost, inconvenience

and added stress of hospitalization in order to safely

take advantage of the benefits, but no longer. Sleep Dentistry,

which is administered in the dental office, allows the dentist to

erase years of neglect in one visit, enabling patients to receive the

care they desperately need.

The key to coping with dental anxiety is to discuss your fears

with your dentist. Once your dentist knows what your fears are,

he/she will be able to work with you to determine the best ways to

make you less anxious and more comfortable. Your dentist can also

review every step of every dental appointment and procedure so

you feel more in control. It’s never too late to receive optimal dental

health, and don’t let your fear hinder your chances of making the

most out of your beautiful smile!

What Dentist are Doing to Help

Helping patients hurdle the obstacles of their fear should be

the priority of every practice. Through the skilled use of sedation,

dentists can manage their patients’ fear and pain. For many, local

anesthesia may be all that’s needed to achieve a calm and painfree

experience. For others with mild to moderate anxiety, oral sedation

or nitrous oxide (laughing gas) can be used for relaxation.

Those with heightened anxiety can benefit from conscious IV

sedation. Unlike oral medications, conscious IV sedation affords

the dentist the ability to control the degree of sedation throughout

the procedure, as needed, to ensure the patient’s optimal

comfort and ease. The administration of IV sedation requires

special training and certification. Placing your care in the hands

of a fully-qualified practitioner will increase your confidence and

quiet your anxiety.

For patients with extreme anxiety, or those facing

complex or lengthy procedures, IV sleep sedation is a

fear-quieting option.

Back to School,

Back to YOU!

Summer has come to a close and now it’s back to the

school year grind. Summer is a time for loose schedules…

aka missed workouts, family vacations…lots of extra

calories and kids to entertain. No time to yourself!

Although fun and exciting, all these

summer activities can reek havoc on

the body and make getting back on

track that much harder. There is no better

time than now to make your fitness regime

part of that “grind.” Here are a few tips to get

back on track, feeling good and beat those

summer blues.

The first and most important component

of getting back on track is to have a “fitness”

plan and to set a goal for yourself. Setting

a fitness plan could be as simple as saying

you’re going to get to the gym 3x per week.

Make sure it’s at a time that will not be interrupted

and a time that will work for you.

Next up is to set a small goal. Having a “specific”

goal will allow you to focus on training

and give you extra motivation to exercise. It’s

a lot easier to make it to the finish line if you

have an attainable goal in sight. Whatever

this goal may be, write it down and put it

somewhere where you will be reminded of it

everyday. Committing your goal to paper and

seeing the written words are more powerful

than just having a thought or talking about it.

Next order of business would be for you

to get your eating in check! I highly recommend

keeping a daily food log of exactly everything

that you are consuming…the good

the bad and the ugly! This will help you

easily pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses.

Make sure to get in the proper mix

of lean protein, complex carbohydrates,

healthy fats and of course lots of veggies.

Skip anything that is processed and stick

to all homemade prepared meals (yes, with

preparation and thought…you can do it!)

The other nutrition component is water!

Your body can not properly burn fat if it is

dehydrated. It’s such a simple thing many

people don’t do. Aim for 1oz of water per

pound of bodyweight. Drinking proper

amounts of water will also help to keep you

feeling full, flush out toxins and help debloat

you faster than you may realize. So get

out that gallon and start your chuggin!

The last step to help you get back on track

is to find an accountability partner. Surely

you can find someone…a friend, the neighbor,

your dog (just kidding!) who is looking

to get in shape or even just live a healthier

lifestyle. An accountability partner will help

keep you on track and honest. I see greater

fitness retention when friends pair up.

Think about it….you’re much less likely to

skip your workout if someone is meeting

you and it gives you someone to call when

you’re ready to throw in the towel.

If you follow these three principles it

should help you get back on track in no time!

My last piece of advice, don’t do the old…”I’ll

start on Monday!” There is no better time to

start than now! Come up with a plan, set a

goal, clean up your eating, grab a friend and

get moving! You’ll be glad you did.

Quick, Reliable And Efficient

Passport And Visa Service

Your dream trip to China is only

a week away. You’ve picked out

your wardrobe, aired out your

suitcase and arranged for the

dog sitter to keep your beloved

pet safe and happy.

It’s one thing to make sure all your paperwork is finished and

your mail is on hold, but did you realize you need a Visa to

travel to India or Brazil?

Sometimes in life it’s the little things that make the big picture a

little blurry. That’s why Steven Fox of Brooklyn, New York created a

company called Fastport Passport. This third party registered courier

makes sure you get a passport or Visa quickly and efficiently.

In technical terms, they are called Passport and Visa Expediting

companies. Because they are registered with the U.S. Department

of State, Fastport Passport can get an American traveler a US Passport

or Visa in as little as 24 hours.

And that’s a big deal when taking a long-awaited vacation or

short notice business trip. If you’ve been to a government office

for a passport and had to wait 3 hours just to hand in your paperwork,

you’ll be happy to know that Fastport Passport has a local

Boca Raton office.

Located on Congress Avenue near I-95, they welcome you with

open arms and make the passport and visa process as easy as

possible. “We are the calm amid the storm. People call us in a

panic because they are leaving the country quickly. Our job is to

make sure your documents are secure and are processed quickly.

We also make sure everything is delivered back to you,” said

Lindsey Marini, COO of Fastport Passport.

Though their main office is in Brooklyn, New York, Fastport

Passport provides Passport and Visa services to American travelers

around the country. They’re able to expedite passport applications

for people in all 50 states. They also make the process

stress-free by guiding you to through the entire process and making

sure you have all the proper documents.

“We pride ourselves on our 5-Star reputation and excellent

service. We are the best in the nation and are a family business. If

you come to our office in Boca Raton you will meet our fantastic

staff,” said Lindsey.

Fastport Passport also has 24-hour online service if you want

to order a passport or visa, or just need information. Often people

don’t realize they need a new passport when they change

their name after a recent marriage or divorce.

If your passport is expiring in six months you will need to renew

it before leaving the country. Fastport Passport also has a

photo service that allows you to upload a digital photo and their

passport specialists will review and print it for your passport or

visa application. They can even print your passport photo and

ship it to you the next business day.

If you’ve never had a passport then you need to have proof of

your travel plans and show you are leaving within 14 days. “We

walk you through the entire process and make sure all the paperwork

is filled out correctly. This way we know you’ve sent us

60 | August 2017 |

all the correct documents. Our customer service team can

help you over the phone from all over the US. That’s how

we make sure it is done properly and quickly,” said Lindsey,

who moved to Boca Raton to expand the business from its

New York headquarters.

Things have changed a lot since 9/11 – that means you

need a Passport or Visa done correctly so you can travel on

the date you’ve planned. Photos need to be taken with a

clear visual of your face (no glasses) and children also need

passports to travel outside the US.

If you go to a state agency for a passport it could take up

to eight weeks (or longer) and there is little assistance to

make sure all goes right. If you turn to Fastport Passport,

they can get your passport in as quickly as 24 hours, or in

two or three weeks, depending on your specific needs.

“I’m really proud of what we have accomplished here. We

can turn a chaotic situation into some of the most incredible

memories from a long-awaited dream trip,” said Lindsey.

She’s right. Just ask Kristen.

“I highly recommend this company to anyone in need of

Passport or Visa services. They were extremely fast, efficient

Forget Your Worries…

Bring Balance To Your Life

Sacred Body Work Session with Debra Kelly, Shamanic Practitioner

Imagine a place where you can

come on a daily basis to unwind

and truly relax your mind and

body… and be in the moment.

You won’t have to dream anymore… Thermae Retreat is a

hidden oasis where you can forget all your worries and

bring balance to your life.

The moment you walk through the doors, you instantly feel

at ease and a sense of relaxation. A calming aroma and soothing

music sets the scene as a friendly staff member guides you to

the meditation room. After you clear your mind, detox in one of

the saunas, enjoy a relaxing massage or an exfoliating facial, and

find peace in their tranquil garden.

Thermae Day Retreat, with locations in Delray Beach and Fort

Lauderdale, brings together the important aspects of wellness in

one beautiful retreat. Their team of practitioners and therapists

are here for your individual needs allowing you to focus on relaxation,

detoxification, prevention, self- empowerment, healing

and balancing of mind and awakening of spirit.

Infrared and aromatherapy Finnish saunas, organic and invigorating

hydrotherapy soaks, exfoliating salt scrubs, massages

from aromatherapy and relaxation to deep tissue and hot stone,

and organic skincare and facials are all part of the journey in the

day retreat.

“We are all busy and our mind is constantly going; we are

thinking about what we did yesterday, where we have to be in

an hour, and what we have to do tomorrow. When we are running

around like that, we are really missing out on experiencing

life,” says owner Kelly Doyle. “Our mission is to take you to a

place of rejuvenation every time you enter our doors. We are

here to teach you how to relax. How to live in the moment, find

your still-point. It is in this place where we find clarity and in

that clarity paths become apparent, space is given to negative

thoughts and life begins to take on a natural flow.”

The owner wants her customers to find purpose and meaning

from their visit.

“Everything we offer at Thermae Retreat is purposeful, meaning

we have saunas for relaxation, detoxing, calming inflammation,

lowering blood pressure and rejuvenating our skin. Custom

massage such as raindrop therapy, deep tissue or Thai massage

for physical pain or stress relief. Skincare to take care of our

largest organ, our skin, through salt and flower petal scrubs,

kelp wraps or biodynamic facials. Sacred bodywork, vibration

therapies, Reiki, quantum healing and meditation sessions and

we also offer monthly memberships that include unlimited use

of the saunas, the meditation room, outdoor showers, move area

with vibration trainers, light weights and rebounder along with

10% off treatments,” says Kelly.

The owner was inspired to open Thermae Retreat after discovering

these methods of relaxation while on a life-changing

trip at a Holland wellness center.

“I spent the entire day going from one sauna to another, not

talking to anyone. After three weeks, I was asked what I was

thinking about and I said nothing. It was the first time when my

head was completely cleared and I was living in the present.

When I got home, I wanted to share that feeling with others,”

says Kelly. “We all have a purpose for why we are here. My

purpose is to help people awaken and have a place to go to

be quiet and find clarity.”

Many clients have experienced positive results and now

live a more stress free life.

“I go to spas all over the world and I have to say this place

is truly incredible. The Meditation Room was an experience

by itself. Massage was deep pressure and really worked into

spots other therapists disregard. The color therapy saunas

were a beautiful experience. All the staff were very attentive

and genuinely caring. I spent the day there and I didn’t want

to go,” said a happy client.

“This is one of my favorite things I experience daily. Clients

and members walk in cell phone in hand, stressed

faces and walk out calm, mind reset, body refreshed and

skin glowing with pink cheeks. What we teach is how to be

present. What we hope is that you learn over time to take

that sense of presence with you and stay there for an hour,

then an afternoon, then a day and next thing you know that

becomes your state of being. It has an effect on everyone

you talk to from a child to a workmate. It is a state of calmness

and there is no better way to live,” says Kelly.

The Ring of

Health and Fitness

If you could take a walk back in time, would you?

If you could find a place that would motivate you

to get in the best shape of your life, would you?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you must go to

Delray Beach Boxing & Fitness. It’s the only boxing gym in Delray

that is raw in intent with an inclusive authenticity that makes for

a softer landing in the landscape of life.

They’ve only been open for three months and its already being

touted as the premier Boxing and Fitness Club to put down roots

in Palm Beach County. As co-owner Rich Wilson likes to say, “There

are no boxing gyms like this. This is a gentleman’s (and ladies) club.

We’re like family here, there are no bullies on the premises.”

Wilson is right. Part of the magic that surrounds this Boxing and

Fitness Club is that everyone seems to congeal harmoniously. Some

call it a real “Cheers” atmosphere where everyone knows your name.

But we like to think of it as a heart-filled epicenter of gravity that

promotes a raw sense of fitness with boxing at its core.

The Boxing ring is Olympic size like the ones you see on TV. But unlike

those bodily battle grounds, this one is gentler and more focused

on getting clients in excellent physical and mental shape. “I have a

third-degree black belt in Martial Arts and this is the best cardio I’ve

ever done. It gets me in shape for golfing and is the cleanest, nicest

gym I’ve ever found. The camaraderie here is unparalleled and we

support each other,” said Rick Jankee, owner of Sail Inn Tavern.

For Simon Reynolds Delray Boxing & Fitness Center has been life

altering. “I lost 17 pounds since joining Delray Boxing. This sport requires

intelligence, it’s not just physical. I’m more focused now and

healthier. This is the only place I’ve ever belonged that makes me

want to work out.”

To offer members the best of breed in fitness and lifestyle improvement,

Olympic Trained Coach, Kofi Sekyiamah is in the house.

64 | August 2017 |

Kofi’s goal is to improve clients lives and help them reach their

health and fitness goals (however lofty).

Delray Boxing recently opened a new Fitness Center with Peloton

bikes, treadmills and strength training equipment. There are group

classes (for boxing or fitness) or one-on-one training sessions.

If you want to get fit without getting hit, try one of their “Wake

Up and Box classes” at 6:30, 7:30 or 8:30am. They have stretching,

shadow boxing and a heavy bag workout. Personal fitness and individual

training sessions are also available.

There is a Kid’s Corner (for ages 12 and up) where young people

can learn a fitness discipline that builds self-esteem and endurance.

Friday Nights are fight nights with guidance from boxing trainers

and sparring partners. But there’s more. A lot more in store for

members of this center of gravity that moves in tandem with the

motion of its members.

They have an English-style Pub called The Cornerman Pub &

Lounge. This Speak Easy-inspired Club gives you a ringside seat

for all the action in the ring (glass separates the two). Its creation

is one of genius and ingenuity. For comfort and camaraderie, the

walls are made with reclaimed wood from a 100-year-old barn, the

bar top is made of copper and the leather stools and banquettes

guarantee maximum comfort. You can get all premium liquors or

beer and wine at the drop of a hat.

The best part is that Matt Fronzaglia is the Managing Director.

Matt is the friend you always wanted, the drinking buddy you

crave and the most amiable host in the county. His wife Maria is

often nearby (at night) and the two make the “Cheers” effect a

wholesome reality.

“There is a real bonding and sense of community that goes on between

people here. They come from different social circles and career

paths but everyone who comes here finds common ground. For

me this is Disneyland,” said co-owner Michael Hockton, whose family

had a boxing gym in East London.

Hockton wants you to know “you can get fit without getting hit”

and that boxing classes are available six days a week. “You can burn

1000 calories in one hour of boxing,” said the Englishman whose accent

will make you feel like you’re in a movie with subtitles.

A little bit of England goes a long way at this Pub and Boxing

Club. They have an authentic English Phone Booth where you can

order cuisine from Delivery Dudes (with no fee). There are also

Food Trucks for Fight Nights (broadcast on all eight of their large TV

screens) when everyone gathers in the pub.

If all this talk about fights and boxing has you thinking the club

is for men, think again. Many of their members are women who enjoy

and embrace this fitness-boxing-pub environment as much as

men. Reynolds’ wife Patti often accompanies her husband in the ring

where they spar. She also exercises and takes boxing lessons.

Interior Designer Jenny also enjoys this 6000-square-foot machismo

inspired sporting environment. “This is the most authentic boxing

experience in South Florida. It’s not only the décor that is captivating,

but the talent, technique and skill of the fighters inspires and

motivates me. This is the best workout,” said the Boca Raton beauty.

In today’s world, there isn’t much that people agree on. But at Delray

Beach Boxing & Fitness Center there’s a harmony and camaraderie

that encompasses all in the world that is inherently good.

Stop by and see for yourself. It’s nirvana for the sports and health

minded and the best place on earth for those who want to be embraced

with kindness, courageousness and comfort.

The Search for Great

Dining in Delray Is Over

Downtown Delray Beach has

become a fun, friendly, and

one-of-a-kind oceanfront

destination. The walkability,

range of offerings, and proximity

to a world-class beach make

Delray Beach a favorite resort

town, and one of the only

“downtowns” in the United States

with an adjacent beach.

This trendy arts community is home to so many outdoor festivals,

events, and entertainment venues, that it’s no wonder almost

two million people each year visit its two miles of public

beachfront. Visitors and locals alike can shop or soak up the sun in

the daytime and enjoy vibrant, lively nightlife in the evenings. But if

catching some of the most delicious seafood at the peak of freshness

is on your to-do list, head for The Atlantic Grille.

Located in the luxurious Seagate Hotel on Delray Beach’s famed Atlantic

Avenue, the restaurant is surrounded by charming boutiques,

galleries, and lounges. Just steps from the ocean, this eclectic eatery

perfectly captures the unique flavor of Delray Beach, with both its

delightful décor and inventive cuisine.

The restaurant houses a 450-gallon aquarium full of tranquil

moon jellyfish, in addition to a twenty foot wide by four foot high

2,500-gallon shark tank with a variety of sharks, including black tip

sharks, a Japanese leopard shark, and several horn sharks.

The eclectic bill of fare and dining options match the décor. From

meeting friends for handcrafted cocktails to grabbing some light fare

such as salads and sandwiches, there’s no better place to absorb the

local scene than Jelly’s Bar and fire-pit lounge. Enjoy great people

watching and dining alfresco amidst calming ocean breezes.

Dinner in the main dining room features seafood, steaks, pasta,

and salads, all prepared with imaginative skill and flawless technique.

But, if brunch is your favorite meal, The Atlantic Grille has

Delray’s best brunch, by far. From the tropical pancakes with orange,

pineapple, kiwi, mango, and coconut compote, to the Benedict trio,

with beef tenderloin Benedict with béarnaise sauce, crab cake Benedict

with red pepper sauce, and lobster Benedict with sauce choron,

the extensive weekend brunch menu is sure to become the highlight

of a great beach weekend.

Bold flavors, the freshest ingredients, and weekly menu changes

make every meal at The Atlantic Grille an original culinary experience.

Along with delicious food and aquatic atmosphere, add some great

live entertainment and you’ll have a dining experience that’s unmatched.

For live music lovers, the restaurant features Doo Wop Tuesdays,

and Wednesdays through Saturdays, you can catch a performance by

singer, piano player, and local favorite, Orson Whitfield. On Thursdays,

Orson teams up with The Atlantic Blues Band for an unforgettable

Blues Night. Recently, the restaurant added a Sunday Sinatra Night.

There is indeed something for everyone.

This summer season, once again, the restaurant is offering a prix

fixe menu, available Sundays through Tuesdays until September 30.

The acclaimed menu includes three courses with a complimentary

bottle of wine for only $38 per person. For the lucky locals who call

Delray Beach home, this is an absolute must for their summer guests.

For events and private parties, there are two private dining spaces

inside The Atlantic Grille. The glass-encased Wine Room features a

12-foot stone table with seating for 18 and custom-designed, handblown

glass chandeliers, making it the ideal venue for rehearsal dinners,

birthdays, anniversaries, business meetings, holiday parties,

and family and social gatherings. The smaller private dining room

seats parties of 10, perfect for intimate or business dining experiences.

Both rooms can be reserved.

Whether relaxing on the front patio, enjoying gracious fine dining

in the main dining room, sipping delicious drinks at the lively

bar, or holding a private party in one of the smaller rooms, guests

will find that The Atlantic Grille has a touch of casual sophistication

that feels right at home in Delray Beach’s historic, vibrant downtown.

Luxury Performance Automotive Group

Your Local Luxury-Performance

Dealer for Sales, Service, and Parts

Some might call Rod Rifai a

matchmaker… There’s not a day

that goes by that he isn’t helping

clients find just the perfect fit.

Whether an ultra luxury Porsche or Range Rover, an everyday

Toyota or solving service problems, Rod and his

experienced team are always there to help with all your

automotive needs.

For over 30 years, Rod has perfected the matchmaking business

when it comes to automotive sales, service and parts. He continues

to expand his business, Luxury Performance Automotive Group, located

in Delray Beach just one mile North of Atlantic Avenue. With

the building being over 25,000 square feet, they offer an excess of

55 vehicles inside one of their showrooms. Clients can find their

next vehicle in the comfort of an air conditioned showroom; or in a

state-of-the-art warehouse with cars stacked to the ceiling, customers

can inspect the vehicle and take it out for a test drive through

an automated door and return back to the warehouse without

having to deal with the extreme heat of summer or the sporadic

rain storms of South Florida. The business also offers a full service

state-of- the-art service facility for all types of vehicles.

State of the art European manufactured storage lifts

“We were selling only ultra luxury vehicles but saw the demand

for luxury and economy cars since there are no franchise stores for

brands like BMW, Audi, Bentley, Porsche, and Land Rover in the

area. We also saw the need for high quality service at an affordable

price,” said the owner. “Service is the key to our business. We

service all kinds of vehicles and specialize in Land Rovers, BMWs,

Audi, Porsche and Mercedes Benz. This provides the customer with

68 | August 2017 |

a great convenience as they can get their vehicles serviced locally

in Delray Beach and not have to travel to West Palm or Fort Lauderdale,

and they get the same atmosphere of a new car store but at up

to half the price of a new car dealership.”

When you walk into the showroom, you are in awe of the beautiful

luxury cars, from the Ferraris to a collector’s Mercedes Benz

SLS Gulwing. The showroom is filled with works of art from local

artists and offers a clean waiting room for clients and guests.

Their knowledgeable and friendly staff greets clients with a smile

and a helping hand and makes you feel right at home. The sales

manager has over 20 years experience in the luxury car business,

the finance manager has more than 14 years experience, the master

technician has an excess of 30 years experience, and all their

technicians are ASE certified.

Because they are family-owned and operated, they take as much

time hand-picking the automotive technicians as they do in ensuring

that you get the best customer service. The owner is proud of

their service specialists who combine over 60 years of experience

with master training in European automobiles. Their technical

expertise and state-of-the-art diagnostic and repair technologies

address any service issue you encounter. With every service, they

treat your vehicle to a complimentary safety inspection, wash and

vacuum. If you can’t come right away, we can store your vehicle in

an air-conditioned facility that is constantly monitored. If you’re

extremely busy, we can even arrange for car pickup and delivery

and they even have a shuttle to and from Atlantic Avenue if you

want to stop for lunch or go to the beach while waiting.

“We only hire top notch people to create a top notch experience,”

added the owner.

What also sets the company apart from the rest is the stateof-the-art

technology and automotive equipment. The owner has

spared no expense on purchasing the best in the industry from a

three car lift that is a must see to a tire machine that changes a

tire without touching the wheel, to the highest quality OEM diagnostic

computer software. Their technicians are qualified and

experienced in working on all auto types from Ferraris to Toyotas

and services range from oil changes and new tires to brakes and

engine diagnostic and repair.

“Every customer, no matter their type of vehicle from KIA, Toyota,

Nissan to Mercedes Benz, BMW or Ferrari, is treated with the

same luxury service at an extremely competitive price. Luxury

Performance Automotive Group provides an ultra luxury facility

with an ultra luxury atmosphere at an incredible value to our customers,”

says Rod.

Over his 30-year automotive career, Rod has worked with a

Rod Rifai, President of Luxury Performance Auto

Group in Porsche showroom next to late model 911

wide variety of automobiles. His passion for the car business began

at a young age when he started buying and fixing up cars and

then racing them. He then worked in banking and then managed

car dealerships before owning several new car dealerships in the

Miami market.

“I have been in the automotive industry for over 30 years and

owned predominantly new car dealerships. After I sold them all,

I moved to Delray Beach to retire but I got bored and missed my

passion. I wanted to do what I love to do, which is working with

cars and helping people,” he said.

Since he started his automotive career to this day, he still experiences

joy in connecting car buyers with vehicles that meet

their needs, from entry level vehicles to luxury or collectible automobiles.

“It’s always fun to help a customer find a car that fits their current

needs. It doesn’t matter if it’s a $300,000 Ferrari or a $10,000

KIA, to that person regardless of price it’s their new car. Finding

the right car for the right customer is very rewarding,” says Rod.

If you are looking to purchase or lease a quality pre-owned

luxury or economy car, search no further! Rod and his team of

experienced automotive experts will assist you in finding the

perfect car for you!

Making Skin Beautiful

One Person At A Time

Gold Coast Dermatology Center

dedicates itself to the art of

healing and wellness. They

treat all types of skin conditions

and are dedicated to smoothing

out winkles in your well-being.

Zo Skin Health Line by Zein Obagi

To accomplish this goal, they have two extremely accomplished

Aestheticians that offer the latest in skin care treatments within

the medical spa category.

It’s one thing to go to a day spa – but another to do so under the

watchful eye of a Board-Certified Dermatologist. “We customize every

treatment for your skin type and set goals for your skin. When necessary

we work with the doctor synergistically so you receive the right

treatment for your skin,” said Lauren Kalina, a licensed Professional

Medical Aesthetician with 27 years of experience in this healing art.

Kalina is not just an extraordinary leader in the field of skin care,

but her passion for her clients – and the industry – is legendary. She

started one of the first day spas in Boca Raton and has dedicated her

life to helping patients look and feel beautiful.

To accomplish this goal Gold Coast Dermatology offers an array

of skin treatments that address the essence of what your skin needs

to retain its youthful glow. One such avenue is through a treatment

known as Micro-needling. The result is the stimulation of collagen,

reducing fine lines and plumping out wrinkles. It also tones and tightens

skin and can reduce stretch marks and acne scars.

“Micro-needling fights the aging process and increases blood flow.

It’s become very popular, is non-invasive and stimulates skins natural

healing process,” said Kalina.

Illona and Lauren

Another avenue to agelessness is Dermaplaning. This treatment

exfoliates the skin and gives it the dewy glow that celebrities seem to

have a patent on. It’s perfect for delicate skin, takes peach fuzz off the

face (it’s a total bonus) and is minimally invasive.

Another cutting-edge way to keep your skin youthful is by having

a chemical peel. Gold Coast Dermatology offers quite a few different

options in this category but one of the most popular is the VI Peel®.

This advanced medical peel effectively treats hyper-pigmentation,

age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and sun damage.

You could say the skin-care industry has come a long way. What is

now possible might have seemed like science fiction years’ ago. But

with the latest technology your skin can retain its youthfulness far

beyond your chronological years.

“We have discovered many new treatments to help your skin regain

its youthful appearance. We now have technology and science

behind these treatments and our patients are becoming more proactive

to protect their skin from the aging process,” adds Kalina, who is

a former Esthetics Instructor, licensed by the Florida Department of

Health and triple Certified in Micro-Needling.

Another state-of-the-art skin peel is their Signature Peel, Revive.

This custom blended specialty peel is gentle and reveals a fresher

more radiant skin. The Revive Peel improves skin texture and uneven

skin tone. The result is radiant skin that will have everyone saying,

‘your skin looks beautiful.’

To keep up with the demand for skin radiance Gold Coast Dermatology

has added another licensed Medical Aesthetician to their staff

– Ilona Gomez. Gomez is certified in chemical peels and advanced facial

massage techniques.

70 | August 2017 |

Microneedling Signature Facial Dermaplaning

Just like Kalina, she is lauded for her gentle touch and positive attitude.

“I strive to give my clients the results they seek while promoting

deep relaxation. My philosophy is to refine the art of healing by maximizing

and balancing the client’s body, mind and spirit,” said Gomez.

To keep skin in perfect balance and harmony Kalina suggests regular

facials be part of your beauty regime. The treatment rooms are

soothing with relaxing music, candles and essential oils. The crystal

chandeliers and heated tables are guaranteed to make you feel like

you’ve entered a back door to heaven.

“Each facial is customized for the client’s skin type. We set goals

and work with the doctor to make sure you get what is best for your

skin. We have the best of both worlds – medical and spa. When you

leave here you’ll have clean, fresh, bright luminous skin.”

As part of good skin care and maintenance Kalina insists that consistency

is key. “Home care is imperative to maintaining your skin

health between treatments. Gold Coast Dermatology offer clients a

wide variety of skin care products.”

The most coveted is a line by Dr. Zein Obagi called ZO®. This upscale

line consists of cleansers for all skin types, exfoliating products,

acne treatment, toners, brightners and healing creams. They also

carry Eau Thermale Avène products perfect for sensitive skin. Their

products soothe, soften and calm the skin.

Beautiful skin is not something to admire on others, it’s attainable

for anyone who seeks its reverie. With so many new treatments and

products Gold Coast Dermatology Center is poised to make the outer

you match the youthful inner you!

Preparations For a

Successful School Year

First Day of School is Monday, August 14

It’s almost back to the books and homework

for Delray Beach students, and there’s no

better way to start the year off right than to

plan ahead for the first day back.

Set your alarm clocks… The first day of school for Palm Beach

County and Delray Beach students is Monday, August 14.

While students are looking forward to seeing their friends

and classmates, they might be nervous about starting back in a new

classroom with a different teacher or at a new school. Parents can

help ease the back to school jitters and the transition from summer

to another school year by using these helpful tips.

Get familiar with the school. If your child is attending a new

school, visit the campus a few weeks before school begins. Walk

around the hallways, classrooms, cafeteria and school office so your

child will know how to navigate their way around their new school.

Make a doctor appointment for your children before they head

back to the classroom. Students must be healthy before they get

back to school so they are ready to learn. State law also requires

all Florida students to have their immunization records showing

their vaccination history. In addition, parents enrolling their children

for the first time in any Palm Beach County school must provide

a Florida Certification of Immunization (DH 680 form). The

time and homework time. Tuck your child into bed earlier. Start

back with earlier bedtime hours a few weeks before school starts

so they can get adjusted to the new schedule. Also, start the healthy

breakfast routine now so they won’t be craving junk food. Establishing

schedules for homework, dinnertime, TV and sports times

also helps. Arranging play times for your child and their classmates

to meet before the start of school will help them get excited to go

back with their friends.

Back to school safety is the first priority. Children should know

who to contact in case of an emergency and the best contact telephone

number. Students should also be aware of traffic safety if

walking or taking a bus to school. Find out the bus times and routes,

know the bike and walking paths or chart out your carpooling

plans ahead of time. Bullying is also an important conversation to

have with your children. They should know how to report bullying

instances, and be aware that it is okay to talk about what happened

if they were bullied or witnessed bullying.

Check your Back to School shopping lists. The earlier you shop,

the better the deals on school supplies and clothing. But make sure

you check the list first before buying supplies because some teachers

require specific supplies. Also, be aware of the school’s dress

code and what your child can and cannot wear during the school

year. Now is the time to check with your school on any changes to

their policies, as well as to find their suggested donation list for

school supplies.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. School meals are

also an important preparation for the school year. If you are

packing your child’s lunch, be sure to include healthy meal

items and mix it up during the week so they don’t get bored

eating the same food over and over. If your children are eating

at the school cafeteria, be sure to put aside enough lunch

money and encourage choosing healthier meal choices. You

can find the Palm Beach County Public Schools lunch menu

on their website at

sfs/index.asp. When your child gets home from school,

make them some healthy snacks and be sure to prepare

some hearty meals for dinnertime!

The planning doesn’t stop during the school day.

After care or after school activities are also an important

part of the preparation process. Make sure to know

the dates and times for after school sporting practices, games

or after school club meetings so you can arrange pick-up or

carpooling. If you need to utilize after care programs, some local

schools offer this service at the schools, while others do not have

the programs or space. Check with your child’s school for more information

on after care programs, sports or club activities.

Check your child’s school website as a resource. It is filled

with important dates, phone numbers and event information. Many

times, the school’s website will be updated and announce school

activities, half days and other important information for students

and parents.

Encourage your child to do their best and enjoy a successful

school year ahead! | August 2017 | 75

A community

activist has a

responsibility to

their community

and to themselves.

Jeannie Fernsworth

78 | August 2017 |

egulars | city people

The Green Goddess

Not many people were fortunate

enough to roam the halls of the Capital

Building or have Helen Thomas as a

babysitter in the Senate Press Gallery.

But then again there aren’t too many people like Jeannie Fernsworth.

That’s because Fernsworth is like a meteorite – swift,

bright and all encompassing. In laymen’s terms she’s a visionary,

botanist, intellectual, advocate for children and families and a

community activist.

To some this moniker might be a bit controversial. But not to this renegade.

“A community activist has a responsibility to their community

and to themselves. I wear that mantle proudly,” said the co-founder of

the Delay Beach Children’s Garden.

As Reverend Paul Kane of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Delray likes to

say, “Jeannie is a true renaissance woman who walks the walk. The Children’s

Garden, that she co-founded, is a jewel in our community. Children

go there with parents and grandparents and connect with nature.”

Connecting with nature is one of Fernsworth’s passions. But to say it’s

her only passion would undermine her vast natural resources. She does,

however, have a degree in Botany horticulture and worked at the New York

and Brooklyn Botanical Garden. But that is only part and parcel of a woman

who took a three month moped ride through The Cévennes to Paris.

It wasn’t mere wanderlust that motivated this young woman, it was

something more cerebral. “I read about Don Quixote’s travel adventures

on a donkey and decided I would do the same thing. I slept in nunneries

and would tell stories.”

You could say that Fernsworth is the ultimate story teller. It’s part of

her DNA and a by-product of her intellectual heritage. Her father Lawrence

was a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and The

London Times and was head of the Foreign Correspondents Association.

He hung out with anarchists and republicans in France and Spain and

knew historical figures like Winston Churchill and Ernest Hemingway.

“One day my father was in a hotel lobby in Spain and Hemingway

came up to him and said, ‘Larry that was a first rate article, we need to

get this information out.’ My dad replied, ‘And, you are who? Hemingway

replied, ‘I’m Ernest Hemingway.’”

Like her father Fernsworth sought out adventure and diversity. When

she was in high school in Virginia (where she was born), she spent time at

the drama department at University of Virginia. “It was an all male college

and they needed women in their plays. After school I would read the parts.”

Fernsworth also worked at Liberties Bookstore in Boca Raton when

it was at its zenith. “Liberties was the heartbeat of intellectualism at the

time. One day CIA Agent Tony Mendez and espionage historian Keith

Melton came in to take pictures of themselves standing next to their new

book Masters of Disguise. It was later made into a movie called Argo.”

You can bet there weren’t too many other people who knew what was

happening that day. But Fernsworth’s pedigree and curiosity usually

lands her a front row seat (and wide angle lens) tilted toward humanistic

integrity and diversity.

“Jeannie has an encyclopedic knowledge and wealth of information on

a variety of subjects. Anything she puts her hand on is going to be marvelous.

She’s a free spirit with a generous heart,” said her friend Jill Karlin,

artist and VP of Gray Mockingbird Community Garden in Lake Worth.

Karlin is right. Fernsworth is as adept at helping people as she is at

nurturing Mother Nature’s offspring’s. She has volunteered for various

organizations and ran “Project Grow” for Adopt a Family, a social service

agency in Lake Worth. “I went to funeral homes and got buckets of flowers

for the kids to learn flower arranging. Even the boys made flower

arrangements. They would take them to their teachers and it became a

language of forgiveness for at risk children.”

But the crown jewel of Fernsworth’s work (and current passion) is

the hidden jewel of earthly refinement – the Delray Children’s Garden.

Located next to St. Paul’s Church, it has a Topiary Zoo, Wishing Wellness

garden, Herb and Veggie Garden, Tropical Fruit Trees, a seven-foot Storytelling

Chair, Fish and Turtle pond and a Grass River Hut for classes,

celebrations and gatherings.

The need for a children’s garden is not mere child’s play, according

to this mistress of greenery. “If we don’t guide our children to navigate

through nature, how can they grow up with an awareness of how to navigate

an airport, or the world? We want our children to be strong, brave

and courageous. We’re nurturing them, not catering to fear.”

Fear is something that Fernsworth seems immune to. She tackles

projects with the ease of a Wallenda and has the bravado of Wonder

Woman. Just being around her makes you realize that life is infinite and

boundaries are for the timid.

“Jeannie is a bold and daring pioneer who’s not afraid to think different.

She brings a sense of history, diversity and universal understanding

of natural harmony. She’s a powerful asset to our community,” said Wise

Tribe founder Jacqueline Botting.

Power is something that Fernsworth is imbued with naturally. She uses

it for the good of those around her, and to make the world a better place.

But when asked about her elegant clothing choices, she has this to say,

“Clothing is power. The way you wear them is the mantle that you carry.”

And for Fernsworth the mantle she carries is omniscient. Just ask the

co-founder of the Delray Children’s Garden, Shelly Zacks.

“Every day I spend in the garden with Jeannie is a learning experience.

She is a plant genius and a powerful force in implementing positive

change in the community. The Children’s Garden is blessed to be filled

with her expertise, passion and especially her laughter.”

We are glad that Fernsworth’s roots are firmly planted in Delray Beach. | August 2017 | 79

2lb Maine Lobster

The Station House Restaurant

Lobster Du Jour And More

If you want to take a walk through South Florida history you

can’t do better than The Station House Restaurant in Lantana.

The white wood paneled restaurant with the Cape Cod exterior

(and interior) was once the Lantana Train Depot.

But things have changed. It’s now a comfy rustically refined

eatery that has lobster as the main character with other

leading roles well defined within the seafood realm.

The Station House has a long illustrious heritage. Opened 25

years ago it has been a place where Lobster

lovers came to roost (you could hear the Bostonian

accent from the rafters). It wasn’t just

the lobsters that had people coming from miles

away, it was also the jovial cottage atmosphere

reminiscent of the Hamptons or Cape Cod.

Some things have stayed the same (the food)

and others have changed (the owner). But don’t

despair, there is good news on the seafaring

horizon. The food is back to its historic roots –

moist lobsters in sizes of up to 10 pounds that

are brought in from Maine. “We are bringing

back the luster to this restaurant and have kept

many of the popular dishes that have made it a

favorite for so many. We have a responsibility to keep the Station

House name alive,” said Tim Kay, General Manager.

To make sure that lobsters are in abundance they have a

90 | August 2017 |

We love the

lobster here.

It’s the closest

thing to heaven

you can find on

the East Coast

of Florida

5000-gallon lobster tank filled with lobsters from Maine. Not only

are they fresh and cooked to order (upon your request) but other

lobster dishes have been added for those with a more adventurous

lobster palate. One of our favorites is the Lobster Stuffed Shells

that were tasty beyond our imagination. Made

with Ricotta cheese, mascarpone, parmesan

and fresh lobster meat this dish is serenaded

in a creamy tomato sauce with mozzarella and

crispy prosciutto. As a seafood purist it dispelled

my belief that lobster does not co-habitat well

with other creamy ingredients. That said, it was

so delicious that someone nearby labeled it better

than carnal proclivity.

On the Lobster front they also have Zuppe De

Pesce (a very popular dish) with Maine Lobster,

fish, clams, mussels and calamari sautéed in

homemade marinara sauce with a side of linguini.

There is also a wonderful Lobster Roll in

a toasted bun with romaine hearts and a light lemon aioli sauce.

For the more modern lobster lover they have Lobster Wraps,

Lobster Pasta, Lobster BLT, Lobster Tails and of course Whole

Maine Lobster (with corn and redskin potatoes) either steamed,

boiled or stuffed with crab.

For starters, we highly suggest their divine Crab Cakes. They’re

pan seared with lump crab, homemade remoulade with roasted

corn and avocado relish. Freshly made, these crab cakes are superb.

If you’re a seafood lover and want to take a temporary break

from the lobster frenzy nearby, we highly recommend the Snapper

Hemingway. This dish is surely worthy of its namesake and

will have you humming with ecstasy. The fish is perfectly cooked

– fresh, tender and moist – with a Parmesan crust and lump crab

in a lemon caper butter over garlic mashed potatoes. Like a good

symphony, this dish is orchestrated perfectly.

Also popular are the Crab Stuffed Shrimp with Station House

crab stuffing and fresh vegetables. You can also get any of their

salads with chicken, shrimp, salmon, mahi or lobster tail added to

your greens. They also have fish tacos, fish and chips, Filet Mignon,

Bone-In-Ribeye Steaks or Chicken Parmesan.

The Station House barbeque ribs are over the moon in flavor and

seasoning. This original recipe is made with pork ribs and cooked

in a mesquite rub that is tender with ample meat that just falls off

the fork (or your fingers).

The original Station House has been enlarged with a larger

wrap around bar, additional rooms in back and the side, and an

outdoor patio with a fire pit and greenery. They now seat 280

people and are proud of keeping this historic culinary landmark

in its savory place in history.

“We’ve added our own flair to some items on the menu but other

dishes are the original. We now have a summer Prix Fixe menu

(for $25) and welcome our guests to special events like our recent

Lobster Night,” said Chef Wood, who has worked for some of the

finest seafood eateries in the country.

Their Lobster Night attracted 400 people who feasted on All-

You- Can-Eat Maine lobster with corn, potatoes and cole slaw (for

only $55). Over 1,400 lobsters were consumed and guests lined

up at 4pm for a table.

That would not surprise Kristi Cosentino. The Indiantown resident

drove 40 miles to get lobster from Station House with her

friend George, who came from Ocala to dine with her. “This is a gem,

we love the lobster here. It’s the closest thing to heaven you can

find on the East Coast of Florida,” said George.

There are a few other things to be happy about at Station House.

There’s Happy Hour at the bar from 4:30 to 6:30 with dishes like

Lobster Pot Stickers, Smoked Salmon, Baby Back Ribs, Popcorn

Shrimp and more. Discounted drinks include the Cucumber Mint-

Berry Lemonade, the Palm Beach Palmer, Peach Basil Martini, Cucumber

Martini and others.

What would a great meal be without an even better dessert?

Their Key Lime Pie is amazing and the Chocolate Dolce Lava Cake is

so good it’s on everyone’s wish list (my bucket list).

There’s not much not to like about the Station House Restaurant.

It retains its familiar historic significance, supremely divine

lobster dishes and great service in a cozy Cape Cod setting.

What more can you ask for? Not much.

BY Bill Piechocki and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM

How Do We Achieve The

Best Health For Our Pets?

In researching the topic for this question, I decided to look up

the definition of health. I went to Wikipedia and was astonished

and confused by all the issues and components that so

many groups have added to the definition. For the sake of our

pets, I want to examine the anatomic and physiological condition

of a healthy pet.

If we could view our pets in a completely natural symbiotic environment,

we would recognize the challenges we have placed on our

pets. Through domestication we have changed their physical environment,

bringing them into our homes where they are protected

from the elements and predators. They no longer have to hunt for

food or even lick their wounds when they get hurt.

Through selective breeding we have altered their physical

traits such as body shapes and sizes. For example, a Maltese

may look pretty but realistically has 99% wolf DNA like all dogs.

While these pets appear different from their wild ancestors, they

still have the same body parts and functions. Let’s observe the

wild model for what healthy looks like and then how to maintain

it. The body is designed for function, not appearance. Legs are

for locomotion, teeth are for tearing and grinding food for digestion,

the liver, kidney and lymphatic for cleansing and the heart

and gut to keep them alive.

So, health is really about keeping the functionality of the body


Let’s reference the wild model. Have you ever seen a picture of

an obese wolf or coyote? Usually in our minds, they appear to be

suffering from malnutrition and hunger. Can this be their natural

healthy state and body type? In the cat family, do wild tigers

ever look obese, mal-fed, or starving? Ask yourself this…do they

eat every morning and evening? When did we create the system of

food available 24/7 in a dry format? Did this come from the natural

model or from a food company looking to sell food?

Optimal health is the body functioning in its most natural way.

The body is dynamic, always changing. The nutrients required to

balance and heal do change throughout the day, week, month and

life and are influenced by both toxin and biological challenges. If

our immune system is high and we are challenged by the flu, we

will never get it. The same is true with our pets. Disease is not

caused by a deficiency of a drug. It is caused by the body being out

of balance with lack of homeostasis.

If you have a pet that is overweight, limps, coughs, has chronic

pain, urinary issues, lumps and bumps, tumors, chronic ear, eye,

skin, or anal gland issues, they are out of balance and NOT healthy.

If your pet is a picky eater with IBD, IBS or other gastrointestinal issues,

they are out of balance. You need to seek the experts in health.

For more information on these and any other health issues, we at

the Ask The PetXpert are only a text, email or call away.

Bill Piechocki, nutritionist and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM are partners

in Fiesta Pet Deli in Pompano Beach, FL, and co-hosts of the radio show. Our 40 years in the animal field has

clients daily. We can be reached at 800-940-7387.
