Hello October!!!

This October there is lots to do in our All America

Town! Beginning with Grove Week in the Pineapple

Grove Arts District. From October 2nd to the 8th

there is something different and special every day!

Read all about it in the Delray Beach Marketing

Cooperative regular feature.

Looking for creative pizza? The Mellow Mushroom has many to

try! Holy Shitake happens to be my favorite, and the Great White

is a close second - however pizza is only one of the many things

on their menu. They also have salads, and sandwiches, and many

craft beers on tap... A great place to gather with friends and watch

a game or two.

I’m a huge fan of Pumpkin everything - and this month our recipe

pages have several different ways to enjoy pumpkin flavors that are

easy to make at home. Pumpkin Martini (YUM), pumpkin pancakes,

pumpkin soup... Pumpkin overload!!! I will be hosting a pumpkin

carving party and serving a few of the recipes to my guests.

October ends with my favorite “holiday.” Halloween is the

one day a year you can be anyone or anything you want! How

amazing is that? There will be many places on the Ave to celebrate

Halloween. Eat, Drink, and Be Scary!

Last month Hurricane Irma devastated our entire state. There

was nowhere to hide. Our beautiful Florida Keys will be recovering

from Irma for a long time. But we are Florida Strong and we will

come back better than ever. Support local businesses, donate time

and supplies to organizations that are helping victims - let’s be kind

to one another.

Imagine the thrill of competing in an International

competition with 20 other nations

from all over the world. Then imagine

that your team won a medal in that competition!

This was the thrilling experience for

members of the South Florida Dynamics Baton

Twirling Team that won the silver medal

at the International Cup.

The Dynamics, from Delray Beach, were

part of Team USA and have just returned

from Porec, Croatia. The twirlers were privileged

to represent the United States in the

World Baton Twirling Federation’s International

Cup. The competition was held in

the Zatika Sports Arena in Porec, Croatia,

from August 5 - August 12, 2017. Teams

from twenty countries attended this International

competition. Events included, solo,

two baton, three baton, artistic twirl, pairs,

teams and groups.

The Dynamics won the silver medal in the

Level A team division with their interpretation

of the music Kairos. The routine included

intricate synchronic twirling, exchanges,

and gymnastics as well as 2 and 3 baton

specialties. The Dynamics placed 5th in the

Group division with their interpretation of

Mary Poppins. Team members receiving

medals in individual events included: Curt

Burrows, bronze in Elite 3 baton, Jenni

Rustan and Claire McNamara silver in Senior

Pairs, Carly Finkel and Jessica Godfrey

silver in Adult Pairs.

The competition was held in a manner

like an Olympic event with opening ceremonies,

the raising of the flag, the playing of the

national anthems, and awards ceremonies

with the awarding of medals.

Rescue 70 Children After

Hurricane Irma

Marc and Jennifer Bell opened their home and their

hearts to the children of SOS Children’s Village. After

being forced out of their emergency shelters, the Bells received

a call saying they needed help and had nowhere to go.

They had no place to bring 70 children and their caregivers,

so “without hesitation, we said to bring them to our home

and we will take it from there,” says Jennifer Bell.

“When the kids started to arrive, they were hungry, tired,

and wanted showers. At first it was just Marc and I, and then

we posted on Facebook and asked for volunteers. Within

minutes friends, and friends of friends started showing up,”

Jennifer said.

Volunteers were also helping with meals, laundry and

keeping the children entertained. They played games in the

couples in-home arcade, sports in the huge yard, and gave

mani-pedis to all the girls and house moms. Bobby the Balloon

One night “we brought out a birthday

Dr. Drew Schnitt

As a toddler, I became obsessed with building, construction, tools,

and fixing things. Around seventh grade was the first time I remember

thinking that I could apply my desire to repair things to

helping to repair people. By the time I started medical school I became

heavily involved with the charity Operation Smile. This organization repairs

children with cleft lip, cleft palate, craniofacial and other deformities

world wide and free of charge. I have been volunteering with these

types of charities ever since. I came to South Florida 15 years ago to

begin my plastic surgery practice with a balance of pediatric and adult

reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. I have come to know the whole

patient from birth to maturity and this has help immeasurably in understanding

the aesthetic needs and management of patients as they

mature throughout their lives. Starting Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med

Spa with my colleagues has been a labor of love and a culmination of everything

I have worked to achieve throughout my career. Inspire strives

to be the absolute finest in patient safety and satisfaction and delivers

excellent results that our patients expect. We welcome you to come in

After doing my first "12 Week Transformation" I knew I needed to continue to reach my goals. So

I decided to push on for another 12 weeks with a "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" attitude.

When I first joined Ashley Sica Fitness, I had my work cut out for me. With Ashley's guidance and

support, she worked with me to attain my goals. I made a decision that my health is the number

1 priority in my life. A commitment to a lifestyle change and determination to be the best I can

be. I will be 50 years old in November, so there is no better time than the present!

At the age of 42 I was diagnosed with colon cancer, and needless to say, it was a rough road

ahead. Dealing with severe digestive issues--colon resection surgery and full blown menopause

from ovarian removal surgery; I knew I had to change my diet and daily routines. Surviving

cancer is a gift, a second chance at life. I looked around and realized how precious my life was

to me. I called Ashley “my hero” not because she has a magic cure, but because she is the REAL

deal. She gives up a lot in her life to take on the role of mentor to people in all walks of life and for

that I am humbled.

To the other women in this challenge, I am forever grateful. Your words of encouragement,

smiles, support and guidance have been so influential in my success! You are all Rockstars to me!

Here's to being THE BEST YOU can be! For me I am Cancer FREE and "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" | october 2017 | 21

As a native Floridian, and a passionate traveler, I graduated with a

Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice and minor in Spanish, from

the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. As part of my program,

I was given the opportunity to study abroad and therefore lived

in Spain for two years. I quickly grew to love the Spanish language and

culture even more and chose to pursue a language program in Ecuador

where I stayed for one year. After a life changing abroad experience, I

knew that I wanted to focus on a career that would allow me to help

other American’s travel the globe. For the last 3 years I have been given

the opportunity to work with FASTPORT PASSPORT, and it has been a

wonderful growth experience. If anyone, nationwide, is in need of an

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 October for $50 or less.

Let’s get positive, positive (and then physical)!

October is Positive Attitude Month

and is a great time to focus on the power of

positivity. If you’re having a little trouble getting

grounded, grab your yoga mat and water bottle because

we have a Kemetic Yoga class to attend. The

Spady Cultural Heritage Museum welcomes you

to attend a 90-minute session of calming, therapeutic

yoga using ancient Kemetic postures and

teachings on Saturday, October 7 at 9:30 a.m.

Kemetic Yoga is the ancient Egyptian system of

yoga enlightenment based upon the practices of

physical movements combined with controlled

deep breathing and meditation. This healing and

regenerative Yoga system is characterized by a

series of geometrically progressive postures that

creates alignment of the spinal column and corrects

defects in the skeletal muscular system in

order to relieve stress, increase blood circulation,

nutrient and oxygen supply to vital body

systems, and to allow internal life force energy

and cerebral spinal fluid to flow more efficiently

and abundantly throughout the entire

body. This all sounds like a great way to get

more positive energy flowing throughout your

body so you can attract more positive energy

around you. The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum

is located at 170 N.W. Fifth Ave. Visit

or call (561) 279-8883 for more

information and to RSVP.

Stella got her groove back, so let’s get

our grove on. October is Self-Promotion

Month and the businesses (and City overall)

are all about showing their love not only

for their community members but also

to themselves. Cue “Get Your

Grove On!” which is a weeklong

celebration for local

merchants in the Pineapple Grove and Artists Alley areas. Cross off

“organize closet” and “replace air filters” from your planner because

you’ve got a week’s worth of activities to attend, and it all benefits

your local businesses. The promotions begin on October 2 and you’re

privy to discounts at Beer Trade Co., The Sweat Barre, A-Z Picture

Framing and more. On October 4, you’re invited to “Spend the 4th

on 4th” where there’s a ton of specials and events along Fourth Avenue

including 20 percent off at N2 Winebar and $35 Girls Night Out

Makeup at The Sandy Shoppe. Thursday, October 5 is the On The Ave

event where Northeast Second Avenue in Pineapple Grove from El

Camino to Brule is closed from 5 to 9 p.m. and features artists’ displays,

a Hyatt Chill Lounge, kids activities, live performances, easels

on the street, and more. Invite your friends, grab some drinks and

stay a while. It’s a local block(s) party and we should all make a week

of it and support our local businesses who make us look so good and

the Avenue so lively! Events are held throughout Pineapple Grove and

Artists Alley, so visit or call (561)

278-0424 for more information.

Don’t be so emo! It’s easy to get wrapped up in our day-to-day

craziness, but you should always take time to stop and smell

the roses. Or, in our case, the orchids. October is Emotional

Wellness Month and is also home to the 27th Annual Orchids on the

Square. Held October 27 through 29 at the Old School Square Fieldhouse,

the event is a celebration of all

things orchids and features orchids of

all shapes and sizes from growers all

over the country. Not only will you be

able to see and smell the finest orchids

in the land, but you’ll also get to speak

with the growers and learn about the

best way to care for and grow your

orchids. The event is open Friday and

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10

a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is only $5 so that gives you

plenty of available funds to score a beautiful orchid

for your home or office. It’s almost guaranteed

that you will leave with a greater sense

of emotional wellness, and will be reminded of

26 | october 2017 |

this wellness every time you look at your gorgeous orchid gift

to yourself. The Old School Square Fieldhouse is located at 51

N. Swinton Ave. Visit or call

Have your conversations become a little ho-hum? Do you

find that your social gatherings include friends talking

about work, bills and children (or lack thereof)? Well,

if so, you, my friend, need a little enlightenment to get your

brain thinking outside of the cranium box. October is Month of

Free Thought and the Delray Beach Public Library is enrolling

Socrates’s school of thought for your dome’s pleasure. Socrates

is an (if not the) most interesting and influential thinker in the

fifth century and was dedicated to careful reasoning. He sought

general knowledge and was devoted to the pursuit of truth. His

willingness to call everything into question and his determination

to accept nothing less than an adequate account of the nature

of things make him the first clear exponent of critical philosophy.

If you think you have what it takes, or want to stretch

your thinking to greater limits, attend the library’s Socrates

Café events. The free class is held every Wednesday in October

from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and you are invited to enjoy a group

philosophy discussion with rotating topics. The possibilities

are endless and that’s what makes it exciting! The Delray Beach

Public Library is located at 100 W. Atlantic Ave. Visit

or call (561) 266-0194 for more information.

Why is Dracula so unpopular? Because he’s a pain in

the neck. Zinger! Halloween is almost here and if you

haven’t been talking about your costume since May,

you’re behind. But, put your thinking cap on because you’ve got

some local events to attend and no one likes a “Hi my name is:…”

costume anymore. The City is hosting their “A Spook-tacular Halloween”

event again this year and there’s a frightening amount

of fun to be had. The celebration is held on Saturday, October 28

and begins at 11:30 a.m. with trick or treating along the Avenue.

All children are welcome to show off their Halloween costumes

along the Avenue from Swinton to the Intracoastal and visit participating

businesses so they can trade “trick or treat!” screams

for candy. Trick or treating ends at 1 p.m., which is the beginning

of the Halloween Parade at Old School Square

Park. The parade-goers will walk East on

Atlantic Avenue through

the downtown to Veterans

Park and will be

welcomed to Kidsfest

at Veterans Park for

the last event of the day.

Kidsfest is a free family

event with live entertainment,

bounce house, food

vendors, a make-and-take

craft area and much more,

and is held from 12 to 3

p.m. What a great treat

for all of the tricksters!

be fun for everyone.”

The tournament, played in a four-person

“guaranteed par” best ball scramble format,

But time is running out for Helen as she

skills and instincts to catch the serial

Lilac Lane

by Sherryl Woods

Released October 17, 2017

No one writes about friends, family and

home better than Sherryl Woods. Told

with warmth and humor, “Lilac Lane” is a

brand-new story in her beloved Chesapeake

Shores series, one readers all over

the world have waited two years to read!

At the heart of “Lilac Lane” is Keira Malone,

who raised her three children alone after

her first marriage broke apart, and who, after

years of guarding her heart, finally finds

love again. But that love is short-lived when

her fiancé suffers a fatal heart attack. Grieving

and unsure of what’s next, Keira agrees

to move from Dublin to Chesapeake Shores,

Maryland, to spend time with her daughter,

Moira, and her new granddaughter, Kate, as

well as to help her son-in-law, Luke, with his

Irish pub, O’Briens.

Not wanting to live underfoot, she rents

a charming cottage on Lilac Lane, replete

with views of the ocean and her neighbor’s

thriving garden—not to mention views of

the neighbor himself. The neighbor is none

other than Bryan Laramie, the brusque and

moody chef at the pub, with whom Keira

is constantly butting heads. But things get

real when Bryan’s long-lost daughter, whom

he hasn’t seen since she was a baby, shows

up out of the blue. As Bryan and Keira each

delve into their pasts, reopening wounds,

the rest of the town is gearing up for the

Fall Festival Irish Stew cook-off, and making

no bones about whose side they’re on.

It’s Kitchen Wars meets This is Your Life—a

recipe for disaster…or a new take on love?

Growing their

‘Panthers Family’

In recent years, the scene

at the Florida Panthers

arena has become more

like a backyard family

BBQ, where everyone

embraces one another,

cheers each other on and

sets the mood for plenty

of laughs and fun.

Panthers ownership and management want the fans to become

part of the ‘Panthers Family’.

“When the new owners bought the team, they were not

winning, and there was not a lot of investment in the players and

fans. We wanted to change the direction of the team, get people inspired

as a fan base and find out what fans really like and don’t like,”

said Florida Panthers CEO Matthew Caldwell. “We found that the

fans loved the family atmosphere created at the arena and that the

management is very hands on and hugs their fans when they meet

them. We are also stewards and role models for our community.”

With the start of the season approaching and the home opener

on October 7th against the Tampa Bay Lightning, fans may notice

the team’s new slogan: Panthers Territory. Fans won’t be able to

miss the huge billboards with the slogan, “Entering Panthers Territory”

as they come from Miami or Palm Beach.

“We wanted our slogan to reflect the rebirth of the Panther, Florida’s

official state animal,

over the past decade, which

matches the trajectory of

our franchise. Now there is

more excitement around our

team, but we do face some

unique challenges. Not many

residents were born in South

Florida, which can make it

difficult to build a fan base,

but we feel if we build something

special it will unite our

territory and bring the tricounty

area together,” said


Besides building the fan

bob boughner

base, the management team

Florida Panthers General Manager/President of Hockey Operations Dale TALLON

and Panthers President & CEO Matt Caldwell welcome new head coach Bob

Boughner to the team at a press conference at BB&T Center on June 12 2017

is also focusing on building the team and winning this season. The

Panthers boast an exciting collection of talented players, including:

Aleksander “Sasha” Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Vincent Trocheck,

Nick Bjugstad, Evgeni Dadonov, Michael Matheson, Aaron

Ekblad and Keith Yandle. They have a new coach Bob Boughner,

who comes from the San Jose Sharks and has a diverse set of experiences

in hockey.

“He is a defensive coach who has been a successful assistant,

been a coach and an owner at the junior league level and he played

in the NHL. He will bring a different style of play, a fast paced, attacking

style. We believe Coach Boughner will position our club to

work towards our goal of winning the Stanley Cup,” added Caldwell.

The Florida Panthers are already on their way to reaching their

goal of gaining more fans. Three years ago, they had only 3,000 season

ticket holders, which has increased exponentially. Attendance

52 | OCTOber 2017 |

Each home game, the Panthers honor a military hero during the national anthem prior at BB&T Center

has also increased 40 percent since the new ownership; along with

sponsorship revenue going up 35 percent.

“We have come a long way. We are getting out there in the community

and creating a family atmosphere and getting people passionate

about The Panthers,” said Caldwell.

The month of October will be jam packed with exciting hockey

games and concerts at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. The opening

game is on October 7th against the Tampa Bay Lightning, then the

Panthers play on October 12th against the St. Louis Blues, on October

20h versus the Pittsburgh Penguins, on October 26th versus

the Anaheim Ducks, October 28th against Detroit Red Wings, and

October 30th against the Tampa Bay Lightning. In between there

will be many fun concerts including Bruno Mars, Tim McGraw &

Faith Hill and Halsey. The arena is also now offering mobile ticketing,

where fans don’t have to print out their tickets anymore, they

can just show them on their phone.

This is definitely a hockey season not to miss!

“Fans should be excited. Everyone knows we have a ton of talent

on this team. Last year there were a lot of reasons we didn’t play

well, but we are very confident that we will bounce back. We have a

young team that is very ambitious and a new coach and ownership

focused on winning,” said Caldwell. “Many times sports teams don’t

have that kind of backing, but we are all aligned on winning. This is

an exciting franchise with great leadership.”

This season, the Florida Panthers has set their sights on winning

and bringing in more fans- and they will be victorious.

“We think we have a caliber of team that can win the Stanley Cup,

if not this year then in the next couple of years. From there, winning

really drives attendance, and we are passionate about our fan

base. Our whole company rallies behind our team,” said Caldwell,

adding, “There is no bond greater than sports. People are extremely

passionate about their sports teams. People love that connection

and we are trying to deepen people’s relationship with the Florida

Panthers. We want our fans to get excited about this team!”

Neuropathy: Breakthrough in

Treatment With 90% Success Rate

42.5 million Americans suffer from neuropathy. It is also

a fact that people 55 years or older are significantly more

likely to suffer from neuropathy. The number of Americans

65 years or older is expected to double from 46 million today

to over 98 million by 2060. An epidemic is on the horizon.

Neuropathy is a broad, generalized term that denotes damage

or disruption to nerves that carry vital information either for

movement, sensation, or vasculature and organ regulation.

Neuropathy can be classified by its distribution and is broken down

into two major categories; polyneuropathy and mono or focal neuropathy.

Polyneuropathy simply means that multiple areas are affected

simultaneously and mono or focal neuropathy refers to one region

being affected. The most common type of neuropathy is peripheral

neuropathy which is a type of polyneuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy

is characterized by burning, tingling, numbness, sharp pain, loss

of feeling, extreme sensitivity to touch, and lack of coordination.

There are several causes of peripheral neuropathy. Some of these

include genetic contributions, diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, postherpetic

neuralgia (shingles), infection, alcoholic neuropathy, drugs,

injury to nerves, toxins, uremia (kidney failure), post-chemotherapy

treatment, and idiopathic (spontaneous occurrence). A thorough examination

and medical history is necessary for accurate diagnosis.

Quite often blood work, imaging, and nerve conduction studies are

ordered to determine the precise etiology.

A breakthrough study in the journal of gynecologic oncology has

demonstrated a 90% success rate in the treatment of chemotherapyinduced

peripheral neuropathy with the use of photobiomodulation/class

IV laser therapy. They also found significant improvement

of functional recovery after nerve crush injuries and toxin exposure

with class IV laser therapy. Class IV laser therapy improves neuropathy

by preventing neural apoptosis and enhancing neurite outgrowth.

Basically, this means that it helps prevent nerve cell death

and it promotes the production of more nerve synapses. The most

compelling part is that researchers did not note any complications

with this treatment. This is groundbreaking, evidenced-based medicine

that can be applied immediately to help this ailing population

feel and function better.

Acne Myths

We’ve all heard that chocolate,

burgers, fries, pizza and many

other (delicious) foods can

cause acne. We’ve also heard

that it’s all a myth. Many skin

care professionals however, will

tell you there is no link between

food and acne. They dismiss

the idea because so much of

the research is inconclusive.

But the latest research suggests that the food/acne relationship

is not a myth.

Refined Carbohydrates

Whereas fat-free diets were once a craze, carbohydrates have become

the new enemy within the last decade.

A study published in Archives of Dermatology shows strong evidence

that certain foods can cause breakouts. Noting that acne is

primarily a “Western” disease, researchers studied 1200 people in

Papua New Guinea and 115 people in Eastern Paraguay (people who

eat a diet of fresh plant foods, lean meat and virtually no processed

foods or refined sugars) and didn’t see a single pimple. NOT one!

Could it just be genetic luck? Unlikely. People with similar genetic

makeup living in Western countries, eating a diet rich in refined

carbs, saturated fats, and other processed foods, develop pimples.

Diets with a high glycemic index (basically, processed foods like

bread, pretzels and chips) are quickly broken down into sugar causing

insulin levels to spike, which in turn leads to increased sebum

production and clogged pores. Physicians recommend eating plenty

of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein – and steering

clear of processed foods and sweets.


Bad news… “milk does a body good” may be true for bones, but

“milk doesn’t do a complexion good.” Recent research on diet and

acne shows a link between milk consumption and breakouts.

Blame the hormones in dairy. Much of the milk we drink is produced

by pregnant cows and contain high levels of hormones that

can send oil glands into overdrive. Skim milk is even worse than

whole milk, partially because it lacks the estrogen found in whole

milk to offset the acne producing hormones. Dermatologists are

suggesting patients choose almond milk, rice milk, and coconut milk

instead of cow’s milk, if they have acne prone skin.


Breaking out with pimples around the mouth and along the jaw

line could be caused by tofu and other soy foods. There are natural

plant estrogens call phytoestrogens found in soybeans. They could

throw off hormones and lead to pimples. Soy derivatives can be

found in foods like veggie burgers or energy bars, so read labels carefully

if you think soy could be causing you pimples.

Fish Oil

Research suggests that the relative intake of omega 6 to omega-3

polyunsaturated fatty acids appears to be an important modulator of

inflammation. Omega-6 fatty acids appear to be pro-inflammatory

and can lead to inflammatory pimples. Omega-3 fatty acids suppress

inflammation. Eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids or taking Fish

Oil supplements with 1,000-2,000 mg/day of EPA should benefit

acne because they decrease inflammatory mediators, improve insulin

sensitivity and reduce testosterone levels.


Oral probiotics have been shown to improve acne in multiple international

studies. It appears that probiotics help in the digestive

process and can reduce not only gut inflammation but inflammation

in the skin as well. Acne patients who consumed a Lactobacillusfermented

beverage for 12 weeks produced less sebum (oily secretions)

and had fewer acne lesions. Taking a supplement or eating

yogurt with live culture may help reduce the number of acne lesions.

While diet alone may not responsible for all acne pimples, evidence

is very strong that diet significantly impacts the skin. Dermatologists

are now emphasizing dietary modifications in conjunction

with tried and true standard therapies for acne. A nutritious

diet that keeps one’s inside healthy will help also keep the outward

Plan school lunches

for a healthy smile!

Pick the right teeth-friendly

food so your child’s smile lasts

throughout the school year.

Parents: have you ever been so excited for school to start?

Summer break is over and kids are officially back in the

swing of school things. No more taking care of summer camp,

summer jobs or summer sunburns, but it’s still important to take

care of your children’s oral health while they are at school. Most

kids don’t bring toothbrushes to school and might not even be able

to chew sugar-free gum after lunch, so it’s important that their

lunchbox holds the key to teeth-friendly snacks.

Snacking and consuming sugar or sweet drinks promote tooth

decay, and it all starts with bacteria. Bacteria live in our mouths and

when we feast, so do bacteria. Bacteria breaks down sugars and

starches left on the teeth, which leads to the formation of plaque

and acid. Acid created by bacteria can damage the teeth if left on

the tooth surface for at least 20 minutes,

so the window for thwarting

cavities is very small!

When packing your child’s lunch

for the day, avoid foods that contain

a high level of sugars and

starches, such as candies, mints,

cookies, pastries, sodas and

juices. If you do want to include

a treat for your sweet, make sure

it’s eaten along with their meal

and not as a snack after lunch.

More saliva is usually generated

around mealtime, which makes

it easier for food to be washed

away from tooth surfaces.

Sugary foods are obvious culprits

but sticky, chewy snacks

can also lead to tooth decay.

Foods like granola bars, raisins,

oatmeal and peanut butter

tend to hang on to teeth

and are not easily washed

away by saliva. But, healthy

foods can sometimes fall into this

category so don’t avoid these foods, just make sure to have your

child drink water afterward, or floss.

However, there are plenty of delicious, healthy and teeth-friendly

foods that you child will enjoy! Fruits and vegetables with high

water content are a great option and include melons, pears, celery

and cucumbers. Cheese is also a great option because it triggers

the flow of saliva, and aged cheeses such as cheddar, Swiss and

Monterey Jack are great choices. Crisp fruits and raw vegetables

like apples, carrots and celery are not only healthy, but they help

to clean plaque from teeth and freshen breath. Water is also incredibly

essential for not only hydration but also rinsing out your

mouth after eating.

In general, try your best to encourage your child to avoid snacking.

Snacking between meals limits the amount of time

saliva has to wash away food. This means more food

remains in the mouth for bacteria to process. Also,

if your child can brush, floss or chew sugar-free

gum, make sure they do so within 20 minutes of

eating because that will help prevent the bacteria

from enjoying any leftover food particles. If

these options aren’t available, have your child

rinse with water after eating or drinking any

sugary drinks. Also, make sure their diet includes

food that builds strong teeth, such

as broccoli, plain yogurt and milk.

Most importantly, remember to

visit the dentist regularly! Having

regularly scheduled check-ups will

help to monitor your child’s dental

health and make sure that their

teeth are healthy and long-lasting.

These easy steps will make

sure their smile is great for their

graduation pictures!

Transform Your Mind,

Transform Your Body

If you are serious about transforming your

body and getting in the best possible shape

there are some things you need to do before

starting your physical transformation.

You might think I’m going to say…plan your workouts, get

your eating in check, etc…but not so fast! Before you start

to transform your body you have to transform your mind.

Transforming your body is ALL mental. If your mind is not in the

right place your body will not follow. I’ve seen it time and time

again being in the fitness industry for over 12 years. Your mindset

is the ONLY thing that separates you from having the body

of your dreams. It’s the difference of reaching goals or missing

them. Here are some things to consider before beginning

your transformation.

Start by identifying your current mindset. You may

feel hopeless, frustrated, discouraged about your

current situation. You may feel you have tried

everything to change your body but just can’t.

You may feel frustrated you loose and gain the

same 10lbs over and over. Whatever your

situation may be, you need to realize what

feelings you’re having and why you’re having

them. Once you identify your current mindset

you’ll be able to move forward with the

right type of thinking. Which brings me to

my next point, the power of positivity.

A positive mindset 100% of the time

during your transformation is a MUST. We

attract what we think. Positive thoughts

yield positive results. If you begin your

transformation with doubts about your

abilities or doubts or reaching your goals

you are setting up for failure. Accept

there will be obstacles along the way,

but with the right mindset obstacles

will not hinder you final result. Whatever

life throws you (because you know

life is full of curveballs) you’ll be ready

to handle any situation or bump in the

road. Many people give up on goals

because of circumstances that are totally within their control. Be

ready, willing and able to say and do, “Whatever comes my way, I’ve

got this and I WILL do this!”

The next key to a successful transformation is that you have

to want it bad enough. Otherwise you will let EVERY excuse in

the book stand in your way. I see this all the time. “I didn’t have

time to get to the gym.” “It was just a couple extra slices of pizza.”

Everyone that wants it bad enough, gets results. When you want

something bad enough your heart and head are into it and with

that your body will follow suit.

Lastly, fear of failure at the door. There is nothing to be

afraid of and the only way to fail is by not trying. Fear is

often what holds us back from going after the things

we really want in life. What should really scare you

is the thought of staying stagnant in your current

situation. Imagine living in a body you’re

uncomfortable with for the rest of your life…

that’s scary! The only way you fail is by giving

up. Understand that transforming your body

is marathon not a sprint. Every “body” is different

and each person’s transformation will

take a different amount of time. For some it

will be three months for some it will be one

year. Whatever it is for YOU, don’t ever give

up - failure is never be an option.

Remember before embarking on a physical

transformation, make sure your mind is ready

to run with you. The mind is the most powerful

tool we have and it can make us or break

us. Use it wisely and your transformation

will be a little easier than you thought!

Beauty Is In The

Eye Of The Beholder

Jen Davis

Neighborhood shops have

become today’s retail superstars.

They’re intimate, the personal

service can’t be beat and the

best merchandise is always

within arm’s reach. Know why?

No one knows that better than Second Time Around owner Jen

Davis. She has fought with the big guys and won (that’s a David and

Goliath story for sure). She has remained steadfast in her search

for barely worn clothing and accessories that hail from time periods

of different distinction.

“I was threatened by a large corporation that wanted to put me

out of business because they mistakenly felt they owned the rights to

my brand. We hired a lawyer (Intellectual Property Attorney Victoria

Brieant of Coral Gables) and prevailed. That large chain of consignment

shops is now out of business and I’m still here,” says Jen.

Their new location, just East of Federal Hwy, is next to Marianne’s

Deli and Bella Reina Spa and across the street from St Vincent’s

Catholic Church.

Jen is still here, and so is her historic landmark consignment

boutique, Second Time Around. “Among the broad array of hard to

find items are many pieces that are brand new. We currently have

a gold and black signature Ferragamo silk scarf that normally sells

for $380 (in Bloomingdales) but can be had for only $89.”

There is also a like-new sky-blue Chanel tote with matching wallet

inside. Some of the merchandise still has original tags (a pink

knit sleeveless dress from Chanel) and others are from bygone eras.

“We have an Emilio Pucci flapper dress and a gold and cream dress

with the same vintage pedigree,” said Jen.

The flapper period – with its Gatsby flair – has been making a

comeback. But nothing beats the real thing for a party or night on

the town. “Second Time Around sold me the most beautiful flapper

dress for my Roaring Twenties 50th Birthday Bash! I’ve been shopping

at Second Time Around for years and they’ve gone above and

beyond to accommodate me. I’ve purchased high-end items and

have been very pleased!” said Andrea.

Because the owner knows their customers and is always on

the lookout for the savviest merchandise. And who doesn’t

like to shop in a place where their name is invisibly written

on their style of choice?

Not many.

There was a time when shoppers may not have appreciated finely

culled apparel and accessories. Shopping malls and superstores

took the reins of power from the little guys (or gals). But things

have changed drastically.

62 | octobER 2017 |

Andrea isn’t the only person who sings Jen’s praises when

they’re thirsty for something exciting to wear. Former Evelyn

and Arthur manager, Vicki also finds Second Time Around a

retail gem. “Jen makes it so special to shop here and knows

how to pick the best merchandise. This store feels like a highend

boutique. They also have beautiful designer merchandise

that is easily affordable (and color coordinated) so you don’t

have to exhaust yourself looking for a great outfit.”

Vicki is right. It is easy to shop at Second Time Around

(sorry Bloomingdales) and everything you need is right in the

center of gravity, so to speak. Overhead on a shelf are sensational

hats from the 20’s to the 50’s in vintage straw, mink

and linen with elaborate trim. Some are clothes, others are

pillbox or fascinators with vintage flowers or vintage ribbon.

Jen travels around the country to bring back unique items

from collectors.

Second Time Around is also famous for their designer handbags.

You’ll find Louis Vuitton totes and satchels, Gucci bags,

Chanel purses and a separate case of vintage and nearly new

Judith Leiber Bags. The taupe snakeskin Judith Leiber clutch

with gold chain is as soft as butter with an air of refinement.

They also have an exciting assortment of vintage jewelry

with rhinestones, marcasite, turquoise or Hollywood-inspired

necklaces and bracelets. Sunglasses with designer names are

also in abundance.

But there’s some things you just can’t replicate. And Jen is one

of them. She grew up in Delray Beach and has been the keeper

of the flame for this consignment boutique established in 1980

by long time Delray businesswoman Ellie Lowry. Second Time

Around has always been a consignment boutique with unique

designer clothing, handbags and accessories, but it now has a

new location and new mission.

“The shopping experience at Second Time Around is wonderful!”

says Delray native Joanne Gimmey, formerly of the Trouser

Shop. “We like to see Jen in the store, but her staff is also top

notch, each with a unique fashion sensibility that makes it fun”.

“I was sad to leave downtown,” Jen says, “but our local customers

have embraced the George Bush location and enjoy the

easy parking and congestion-free shopping. My landlord here

is wonderful -The Gywnns – and we’re only eight blocks North

of Atlantic Avenue, a short drive North on Federal Highway.”

• Home consultations and buy-out options are available.

• If you’re consigning, call for an appointment.

Boynton Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery & Implant Center

By diane feen | Photos by Melissa korman

Oral Surgery Leaders

In Digital Technology

When it comes to your teeth, and your smile,

you want all hands-on deck. In other words,

you want the best care from the most qualified

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon you can get.

That’s why Boynton Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery & Implant

Center continues to be a place where patients get excellent

oral surgical care.

The practice has been in the same location for the past 20 years

and many of the people who work there (including the surgical assistants)

have been there equally as long.

Started by Dr. David Feinerman, who is both a DMD and an MD,

the practice is dedicated to excellence. Dr. Feinerman is a Board

Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who received his Dental

Degree from Harvard School of Dental Medicine (cum laude) and

his medical degree from the University of Connecticut.

After his four-year oral surgery (and one-year general surgery

residency) he completed a one-year maxillofacial surgery fellowship

at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center. He was a clinical instructor

of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at The University of Connecticut.

Dr. Feinerman is a clinical instructor of Oral and Maxillofacial

Surgery at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine

and is on staff at Delray Medical Center.

But at his Boynton Beach Office he is one of three oral & Maxillofacial

surgeons with extensive expertise and knowledge of the

latest techniques and procedures to make sure your oral surgery is

done correctly with the utmost care.

“We do a lot of dental implants and use the finest products for

our patients. We only use the Straumann, Roxloid implant because

Dr.Robert Schaedel, Dr. David Feinerman and Dr. Derek King of Boynton Oral & Maxillofacial surgery & implant center

64 | octobER 2017 |

Dr. Schaedel and Dr. Feinerman discussing treatment options for a patient

they’re stronger than standard grade 4 titanium implants and have

been shown to bond to the bone better in some recent studies. We

were the first practice in Florida to use Roxloid,” said Dr. Feinerman,

who is a fellow in the International Team of Implantology.

Dr. Feinerman and his colleagues use state-of-art Dental Cone

Beam CT Scan technology to aid in precise placement of implants.

They also utilize digitally guided implant placement which gives the

doctors the ability to make a temporary prosthesis before surgery.

The result is that you get an esthetic temporary tooth the same day

as your surgery that fits precisely the way it should.

Boynton Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery & Implant Center also has

other excellent oral surgeons on staff. Dr. Robert Schaedel is one of

them. Dr. Schaedel relocated to Florida five years ago after practicing

for 16 years in Southern Maine.

Like Dr. Feinerman, Dr. Schaedel is also an MD and DMD. He received

his DMD and MD degree from the University of Connecticut

and did his one-year general surgery residency and four year Oral

and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the University of Connecticut.

Dr. Schaedel, who is Board Certified, was the Chief, Division of

Oral Surgery and Dentistry at Mercy Hospital in Portland, Maine

and past President of the Greater Portland Dental Society.

Dr. Schaedel is also a Diplomate of the National Dental Board of

Anesthesiology and Fellow of the American Association of Oral and

Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Aside from his stellar experience and education Dr. Schaedel

adds another fine touch to the Boynton Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

& Implant Center. “I take time to explain the different procedures

and choices a patient has when they’re in my office. I feel good honest

communication with a patient is very important. We provide

the best care as a team.”

Another member of their team is board certified Oral and Maxillofacial

Surgeon, Dr. Derek T. King. He received his Doctor of Dental

Medicine degree from the University of Florida College of Dentistry,

and did his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training at the prestigious

Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was Chief Resident.

Dr. King is on staff at Delray Medical Center taking oral surgery

and facial trauma cases. He does oral and maxillofacial surgery at

the office with an emphasis on dentoalveolar surgery, implant dentistry,

wisdom tooth removal, pathology, corrective jaw surgery,

and trauma to the facial skeleton.

“We all have the same philosophy here – we do things correctly

and make sure our patients are happy. By using digital CAT Scans,

we are able to help eliminate error. We also work closely with our

referring dentists so we know what needs to be done from both the

prosthetic and surgical standpoint – that streamlines the process

for the patient,” said Dr. King, a native Floridian.

Patients feel the difference. “Dr. Feinerman is the best oral surgeon

I have come across for my son. He is very professional, knowledgeable

and personable. All the staff is extremely nice and knowledgeable,”

said Jennifer Smythe.

Clara Hodges agrees. “Fantastic, professional, and kind people at

this office! Dr. King removed one set of my wisdom teeth with ease

and was so gentle during the entire process. Everyone there was

kind and made you feel as if you were the only patient they had!

Phenomenal work.”

The reason patients feel so comfortable and safe at Boynton

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery & Implant Center is because of their

patient-centric policies. “Patient care is our number one priority,”

said Dionne Schneider, Practice Relations Director. “We want our

patients to understand what they need and why. It’s about them.”

And, part of their work includes education on all sides of the aisle.

They host Study Clubs where dental professionals get together and

discuss the latest procedures, cutting-edge techniques and advances

in equipment. They also have guest speakers who talk about the latest

medical breakthroughs in the field. It’s known as the ITI (International

Team of Implantology) Study Club of Boynton Beach.

Their continued drive to offer excellence in Oral and Maxillofacial

Surgery has patients not only happy, but confident in this team

of professionals. “This is such a well-run office with state of the art

equipment. I saw Dr. Schaedel and he was kind, caring and had a

calming manner. Knowledgeable, goes without saying,” said Nancy

Guthartz Pincus Cohen.

Freedom Day USA:

Because freedom isn’t free

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are,” said Theodore

Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States. If you’re wondering

where to start, Dr. Craig Spodak and the Spodak Dental Group team

know where, as they are placing efforts with Freedom Day USA.

Freedom Day USA is a national “thank you” movement for

members of our military and their immediate families, and

veterans, to thank them for the sacrifices they make each day

to ensure our freedom. The Fifth Annual Freedom Day USA event

is held nationwide on Thursday, October 12, 2017, and the Spodak

Dental Group is not only a proud participator, but has also been

with the organization since the first event in 2013.

“Unfortunately, highly-skilled dentistry is not always accessible

to members of the military for many reasons,” said Dr. Craig Spodak,

owner of Spodak Dental Group and National Committee Member

for Freedom Day USA. “We consider this an honor and a duty to

take care of our military members by providing exceptional dental

care to them and their families, leaving them with one less thing

they have to worry about while they are away serving our country.”

Betty, patient Charles, Ann and Debbie - Freedom Day USA 2016 Sam, Dr. Myles, Betty, Susie and Kristi - Freedom Day USA 2016

Spodak Dental Group is offering veterans, active military members

and their immediate family members free cleanings, exams,

fillings, X-rays, treatment for tooth pain, and extractions. The team

was able to provide more than $80,000 of free dental care to more

than 40 members of our armed forces last year, and hopes to increase

their reach this year.

“My goal is to make sure Freedom Day grows throughout the

country, and have thousands of businesses giving free care or services.

It creates awareness and raises the consciousness of those

sacrifices they’ve made,” Dr. Craig said. “I am not going to be backing

down from this. My hope and desire is that it continues to grow

and spread. That’s what I really wish for. ”

One of the Spodak Dental Group team’s core values is to give

back to its community, in any and every way possible. Spodak Dental

Group is the only dental office in Delray Beach participating in

Freedom Day USA this year, and Dr. Craig encourages all dentists,

and local businesses, to join the cause.

“We have these special days, like Freedom Day USA, where we

like to give back. We really reflect on the gifts that God has given us

as medical professionals to heal people,” said Dr. Tiffany Dudley, a

general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. “A lot of the veterans we

see are on disability or on a fixed income, and the VA does not provide

their dental benefits because they’re not service connected.

So this is a great chance for us to give back and further our goals of

making the world a better place through the power of compassion.

By treating these patients and getting them out of discomfort, we

are helping them so they can be a positive force in their lives and

other people’s lives.”

Dr. Craig’s greatest desire is not to just continue what he and

his team are doing, but to also expand the message and increase

participation. Any business can participate and is encouraged to

provide a free service or gift, and can include a free sandwich at a

restaurant, a free hair cut, free legal consultation, free debt consolidation

services, etc. Freedom isn’t free, but on Freedom Day USA,

local businesses can say “thank you” as they best know how, which

is by donating their goods or services to those who selflessly put

their lives on the line for the nation.

“I was quite surprised that there are very few companies that really

help the veterans at this time,” said Veteran Barry Levey, a 2016

Freedom Day USA patient at Spodak Dental Group. “And I wish other

businesses would follow and give back just like us veterans did

give for our country. If I had to do it again, I would.”

If you are a veteran or active military member and would like to

sign up for free dental care, please call (561) 498-0050 or email and the Spodak Dental Group team will

make an appointment for you and your immediate family members.

Space is limited, so you are encouraged to call as soon as possible.

Choosing A Therapist

Trust Your Instincts

I’m struck by how often people ask me “how do I know I have

the right therapist?”. As a therapist, I provide a good sounding

board for most folks. I’ve responded with words like “fit”, “instinct”,

“first impressions”, “gut check”. These are all good ways

to get a “sense” of whether the person we sit before can ultimately

be a helpful coach for us. Intuition is critical, especially

when we’re depressed or overly anxious, and our thinking is not

all that clear.

First Blush

Malcolm Gladwell, in his excellent book “Blink” refers to this

process of initial personal appraisal as “psychological thin-slicing”

and urges us to take our time trusting the initial “blast” of

information that comes our way in the first milliseconds of a human

encounter. In his book, he goes on to recount one anecdote

after another in which a person (or group) denied their initial

instinct, even at times researching the matter at hand with great

rigor and expense, only to find themselves face to face with their

initial impression as true. We “know” when we “know”.

Shop Around

So...when you need some counseling....narrow the list....grab a

face to face appointment. Think of it as “life research” and pay the

fee gladly for the knowledge it will produce. Sit down and talk.

Feel weird? Keep moving! Let no one tell you it’s your fault that

you feel uncomfortable across a small room. (Unless of course,

you fear people generally and know this to be one of your clinical

issues). Bottom line: That old joke that in the psychotherapy business,”

the customer is always wrong” makes light of our uncertainty

at these critical moments. Along with trust in our instinct,

it is, of course, the importance of looking into details. Education

(no less than a master’s degree from an accredited school) , training

(especially post-master’s) and deep experience (specialty?)

are important as well. Do your homework. Make sure the person

you’ve found is licensed by your state, and overseen by a board of

medical quality assurance. Having found the right person, relax

and enjoy the conversation. It will change your life.

6th Annual Volunteer

Delray Event

Matching Non-Profit Opportunities

with Interested Volunteers.

Businesses and individuals

discover opportunities through

Non-Profit Expo

Did you know that the National Value of 1 hour of volunteer

service equals $24.14?This value is typically used by nonprofits

to demonstrate the valued rate of support they receive

from local volunteers in their communities. Simply put an

hour of volunteer service provides a non-profits organization with

$24.14 worth of FREE help. That’s A LOT of financial savings!

“People’s lives are enriched when they are involved in a cause or

movement bigger than they are. Often people want to get involved

but don’t know where to start or even what they have to contribute.

Volunteer Delray brings together mission driven non-profits and

motivated individuals – I like to think it improves the world one kind

gesture, smile or helpful hand at a time.”- Leanne Griffith, Founder of

Volunteer Delray& Director of Events for Old School Square.

This year marks the 6th Annual Volunteer Delray event which will

take place Friday, October 27th from 5:00 – 7:00pm, prior to On the

RoxxFree Friday night concert at Old School Square Pavilion. This

event is FREE to the public and provides the perfect opportunity for

our own citizens to meet local non-profits, learn about volunteer opportunities

and discover potential Board of Director openings. The

The seagate spa


Relaxing Escapes

Transcend Age and Interests

Feeling stressed out by the

daily grind? You’re not alone.

Everyday life can take a toll

on your body, mind, and spirit

no matter what your age.

Thankfully, The Seagate Spa

offers the perfect antidote.

The spa’s decadent, total-rejuvenation experiences appeal to

nearly any age group or interest. They also earn complimentary

all-day privileges to a wide array of hotel amenities. Spa

guests are free to enjoy the hotel’s pool, Jacuzzi, pool bar, fitness center,

tranquility room, and steam room as part of their treatments.

A Vineyard-Inspired Indulgence

The Caudalie Divine Vinothérapie Spa Package takes women,

21 and over, on a therapeutic journey through the vineyard. Each

tension-reducing stop along the way is accompanied by the appropriate

wine selection.

Enjoy a variety of indulgences, starting with a relaxing body

scrub of grape seeds, brown sugar, and pure Bordeaux honey, as

you sip a glass of Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon.

An invigorating massage follows to promote circulation and

reduce the look of cellulite. Extend the relaxation by radiating in

the floral, sun-kissed fragrance of the decadent, 50-minute Divine

Vinothérapie Massage. This exquisite pampering experience incorporates

Caudalie’s award-winning Divine Oil for truly intensive

skin hydration. Antioxidant-rich grape polyphenols and nectar of

the vine blend with grapefruit, vanilla, and cedar, to leave your skin

noticeably softer.

Next up? The equally decadent Premier Cru Anti-Aging Facial,

accompanied by a glass of Clos du Bois Merlot. The exclusive ingredients

of this exceptional treatment include patented resveratrol

to fight wrinkles and leave facial skin smoother, denser, and firmer.

Wind up the journey with the Fleur de Vigne Pedicure, a truly

special treat for your feet. Nails and cuticles are meticulously

groomed as you soak in the scent of fresh grape flowers. Then, the

Crushed Cabernet Scrub smooths away dry skin and calluses, before

a decadent grape-seed oil cream is massaged into your lower

legs and feet. It’s followed by the perfect polish, as you indulge in a

glass of Kim Crawford Chardonnay.

The Men’s Whiskey Voyage Whisks Away Anxiety

At The Seagate Spa, men receive equal stress-relief treatment

thanks to the naturally relaxing qualities of whiskey. For those over

21, the Men’s Whiskey Voyage is the perfect way to reduce tension,

calm nerves, and relax the entire body.

Feel those daily stresses melt away as skin is gently buffed by a

warm, brown sugar-bourbon scrub. Afterward, a full body massage

combines essential oils and hot stones to reduce stress and relax

the mind. It’s followed by the ultimate foot treat: reflexology. Keep

the relaxation vibe going by sipping a glass of scotch, rye, or bourbon—neat

or on the rocks—in the men’s tranquility room.

Teens Get Special Treatment

The Seagate Spa knows that teenagers need pampering, too.

The Chillin’ Teen Retreat offers those 13 to 18 years of age the

perfect stress reliever and pamper-fest. This age-appropriate retreat

includes a 50-minute teen facial, chocolate truffle manicure

and pedicure, along with a complimentary, non-alcoholic strawberry

makes a much-appreciated treat for just about everyone on your

Marusca Gatto

78 | october 2017 |

egulars | city people

by diane feen | photo by melissa korman

A Heart For Art

According to scientific mythology

creative people use the right

side of their brain to function at

the highest level and those with

a more mathematical aptitude

use the left side.

Some people use both. Marusca Gatto is one of them.

As the Director of Operations at the Cornell Art Museum,

Gatto is one-part administrator and one-part creative culture

vulture. The former East Coast Service Administrator for Rotork Controls

in Rochester, New York has dusted off her industrial wings and

flown straight to the epicenter of culture in Delray Beach.

Since her arrival three years ago Gatto has been quietly leaving

her mark on the art scene at Old School Square. She started out as a

glass-making teacher who sold her delicate colorful glassware at the

Cornell Museum Store.

When a part time position as the coordinator at the Museum

opened Gatto sashayed into the job with glee. “I felt an immediate

connection to the museum when I first walked through the door. I

moved to Delray Beach because it is an artist community and I have

never looked back.”

Gatto didn’t have to. She had too much staring her in the face from

the moment she set foot on the land she calls home. “The job as Director

of Operations at Cornell Art Museum is the culmination of my

life experience in the business world and the art world. It’s a dream

come true. I am surrounded by art everyday – it’s a gift,” said the Italian

born glass artisan.

Though she has spent the better part of her career in operations

and administration as it relates to valves and pipelines, Gatto is clearly

in her element. After graduating from high school her parents (Antonio

and Gabriella) took her to Venice, Italy. While in Murano she was

literally blown away by the visual aesthetics and artistic brilliance of

blowing glass. She took her fascination with her across the ocean and

began taking glass blowing classes. Even though she worked full time

in the corporate world she followed her artistic passion on nights and

weekends. She taught kiln-formed glass techniques at Rochester Arc

& Flame, Corning Museum of Glass and at Old School Square.

Her colorful handmade glass chandeliers, candle holders, nightlights

and platters are sold on Etsy, gift shops and art shows. Her

sidekick (and Roadie) for the past 38 years is her husband Joe. It’s in

Joe’s Marine canvas business that Gatto has a small kiln where lofty

ideas are hatched and come to fruition.

Gatto’s day job as Director of Operations at the Museum encompasses

everything from opening the doors each morning to hiring

museum docents, curating and organizing monthly Art Walk Exhibitions,

managing the museum gift shop, coordinating outgoing and

incoming art, budgets, purchasing, maintenance of permanent collections

and art sales.

But that’s only part of the job. The rest is creating an artistic space

that allows visitors and tourists the expansive experience of art in

all forms and modalities. “As an artist coming from a business environment,

having the opportunity to work surrounded by art was a

dream come true! You can’t have a bad day surrounded by great art

and talking to visitors enjoying the museum!”

Gatto’s love of the arts has often inspired her to think outside the

box. She curates (and included the museum) in the First Friday Art

Walks. She also created and executes the Annual “Art on the Square

Fine Art Show” and keeps the flame burning bright on the 6”x6” Exhibit

of local artists miniature art - that is displayed - and then sold to

benefit the museum.

But that’s only part of this over-achievers’ artistic reverie. Gatto

was recently elected to the Delray Beach Public Art Advisory Board

and is on the Arts Warehouse Advisory Committee. When the advisory

board unveiled whimsical seven-foot aluminum chairs for the

“ArtCitywide Chair Project” it was Gatto’s idea to showcase them at

the OSS stage so guests could revel in their magical delight before

they were placed around the city.

Another of her genius ideas was to invite children from the Milagro

Center to paint and exhibit their work in the museum. “February is

Black history month so we taught the children about the Highwaymen

and their style of art. They learned to paint on wood with artist

Ralph Papa and their work was exhibited at the museum. The kids

brought their parents and everyone loved it.”

Ideas like this have garnered Gatto’s a large fan base. “Through

some miraculous, metaphysical process beyond my comprehension,

Marusca’s incandescent warmth has been transferred into the walls

of the Cornell Museum. When our guests cross the threshold, they

are literally ‘hugged’ by the museum. It is abundantly clear to anyone

who has ever met Marusca that she truly loves the Cornell Museum

so much that our guests can bask in it,” said Rob Steele President &

CEO of Old School Square.

Steele is correct. Gatto is clearly the main cheerleader for everything

within the walls of this historic museum. But her warmth and

adoration continue outside those walls as well. “it is incredible to be

part of public art projects. The entire community can enjoy it any

time of day and It inspires people to pause and think in nature. It’s

what originally drew me to Delray.”

The other thing that drew Gatto to Delray is their daughter Juliana.

The 31-year-old GM of a Marina in Pompano is also a certified

licensed sea captain. Their son Adriano, who lives in Buffalo is a theater

actor (and college professor) and is married to Heather, a veterinarian.

If there is a jewel more valuable than art it might be Gatto’s

three grandchildren.

But for someone with a heart as vast as the ocean, all life is sacred

and all creation is to be honored. “I live a very grateful life. Being positive

is very important and I feel so lucky with my station in life.”

Those around you do too!

Holy Shitake Pie

Mellow Mushroom

A State Of Marvelous

House Salad & Greek Salad

With a name like Mellow Mushroom

you would expect a laidback eatery with

veggies and velvet couches.

But much to our surprise Mellow Mushroom is more a state

of mind than a state of being. The atmosphere is upbeat with

visuals that surround and envelope you like a warm blanket.

There’s a bit of excitement tempered with a lot of creative visuals

(murals and paintings) that bring back the free-wheeling vibe of a

more innocent time.

And that’s a good thing. Because dining out is one of our safest

escapes from the predictable.

Especially since a meal from Mellow Mushroom is anything but

predictable. That’s why they’ve fared so well over the past nine

years. The food is wonderful, the prices affordable and the attention

to detail is explicit.

Their homemade pizzas combine a unique bundle of flavors in

savory sauces that make you wonder, “What a great pizza, who’s

idea was that?”

The ideas come from Mellow Mushroom headquarters, where

thought and health combine to trigger combustible flavors guaranteed

to perk up your palate.

The reason the dough is sweet, but not sugary, is because it’s made

with high protein Unbleached, Un-bromated Wheat Flour, Appalachian

Spring Water and no refined sugar. Add that to their choice of

pizza toppings and you have a veritable feast of Italian origin.

With Names like Great White, Kosmic Karma, Mighty Meat, Veg

Out, Pacific Rim, Holy Shitake Pie and Funky Q. Chicken you know

you’re in for a special pizza experience.

Our favorite was the Kosmic Karma. This scrumptious pizza is

a unique blend of the fun, flavorful and fantastic. Made with their

signature red sauce, feta and mozzarella cheese, spinach, sun-dried

roasted tomatoes, Roma tomatoes with a swirl of pesto, it was wonderful.

This pizza will surprise and delight you with a savory, yet

sweet taste that will invoke an involuntarily sense of joy.

The Holy Shitake Pizza Pie is another fan favorite. Made with olive

oil and garlic, it includes shiitake, Button and Portobello Mushrooms,

Caramelized Onions, Mozzarella and MontAmoré cheese.

They add a garlic aioli swirl and a spritz of black truffle oil, fresh

chives and shaved parmesan.

Another fan favorite is the Buffalo Chicken Pizza. “This pizza

was absolutely fabulous! The soft yet perfect crunch of the crust,

90 | october 2017 |

the cheese oozing off, the drizzle of hot buffalo sauce and glorious

ranch dressing. The caramelized onions gave it a twist of sweetness

and relaxed the heat of the buffalo! My boyfriend isn’t a huge pizza

fan and he was gobbling it down!”

There’s a lot to savor at Mellow Mushroom, where the menu resembles

a Beatles poster. That’s not all – the interior space is a kaleidoscope

of color with a hand-painted mural of the Beatles strolling in their inimitable

Abby Road style (by artist Howie Green). The restrooms have

colorful scenic tiles on the walls and a painting of the Woodstock Poster

will take you back to the good old days of Yasgur’s Farm.

We would be remiss if we didn’t tell you about the Magic Mushroom

Soup that is magical. Made with Burgundy wine and herbs

and topped with Italian MontAmoré

cheese, grilled Shitake, button and

Portobello Mushrooms, it’s delicious.

The flavorful decadence and creamy

taste will have you wondering how a

neighborhood haunt can come up with

soup so delicious.

Another oldie but goodie is their Spinach

Artichoke Dip. Mellow Mushroom’s

version of this creamy baked dish with

sautéed spinach, artichokes and baked

with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese,

is excellent. Is it rich? Yes, but is it incredible

with chips or garlic toast.

Another winning combination of Italian heritage are their Calzones.

Crispy and scrumptious with their signature dough cooked

in Mellow red sauce, we loved the Veggie Calzone. Made with spinach,

mushrooms, Roma tomatoes, seasoned ricotta cheese, mozzarella

and provolone it was excellent.

For those with a more simplistic palate there are Hoagies on a

multigrain or French roll. You get your choice of a Steak and Cheese

Hoagie, Meatball, Italian, Avocado, Mushroom, Chicken and Cheese,

as well as Tempeh or Tofu (a great comfort to vegetarians).

If you’re a free spirit (or have dietary restrictions) you can Build

your own Pizza or Salad (there’s a lot to choose from).

You can also indulge your passion for Craft Beer by choosing between

50 Tap Beers and 36 Bottle Beers. With names like Wood

Chick Pear Cider, Sea Dog Blueberry or Rogue Dead Guy Ale you will

be guided through uncharted beer territory.

They have alcoholic drinks that savor the moment like the Sunset

in Paradise, which manager Jackie Parisi calls, “A vacation in a

glass.” They also have a full bar and Happy Hour every day from

11:30 am to 7pm.

As a prelude to goodbye try one of their incredible desserts. Their

wickedly delicious cookies (such as triple chocolate chunk, peanut butter

cup and oatmeal raisin) or a brownie can be adorned with vanilla

ice-cream, dark chocolate truffle sauce and homemade whipped cream.

There’s a take-out window out back, home delivery (with Delivery

Dudes) or you can order online.

But whatever you do – make sure you stop by Mellow Mushroom

for their casual upbeat vibes, colorful panorama, and some of the

best casual Italian fare around.

What a great

pizza, who’s

idea was that?

Light and Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes

1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon

1⁄2 teaspoon ginger

1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1 pinch clove

1 cup 1% low-fat milk (can be any kind)

6 tablespoons canned pumpkin puree

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 egg

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, spices

and salt in a bowl.

In a separate bowl whisk together milk,

pumpkin, melted butter, and egg.

Fold mixture into dry ingredients.

Spray or grease a skillet and heat over

medium heat: pour in 1/4 cup batter for

each pancake.

Cook pancakes about 3 minutes per side.

Serve with butter and syrup.

Makes about six 6-inch pancakes.

Pumpkin Soup - Classic and Easy

2lb pumpkin, chopped into large chunks (remove skin and seeds - see Note 1 below) or

substitute with 2 1/2 cups of pumpkin puree

2 medium onions, sliced

2 cloves of garlic

3 cups chicken or vegetable stock

1 cup milk - for vegan see Note 2 below.

Salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients (except salt and pepper) in a saucepan and bring to boil, then reduce heat and let

simmer until pumpkin is tender.

Remove from heat and use a stick blender to blend until smooth. If you don’t have a stick blender, use a

blender (see Note 3 below).

Season to taste with salt and pepper, then serve with crusty bread.

Variations: For a richer finish, substitute the milk with cream, but add after blending and do not bring to boil.

Garnishes: Dollop of yogurt, sour cream or crème fraiche goes wonderfully.


1. ~2.5lb pumpkin before peeling and removing seeds.

2. To make it vegan, substitute with almond or soy milk.

3. If you don’t have a stick blender, you can use a blender BUT you must make sure that the soup is cooled

slightly before blending it, otherwise you will find out the hard way that hot soup + blender = soup explosion

(literally, the lid will blow off the blender when you start blending it).

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 tsp. fresh thyme

1 tsp. fresh oregano

½ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. fresh ground pepper

4 small pumpkins

Make the stuffing: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Decase and

crumble the sausage meat and place it in a large saucepan over

medium-low heat. Cook the sausage until it is almost done -

about 8 minutes. Remove the sausage from the pan, increase

heat to medium, and add the onion and 2 cups of the chopped

pumpkin. Sauté until the pumpkin begins to soften - 5 to 7

minutes. Add the chopped apple and sausage and sauté for 3

minutes. Add the wine, cook for 2 minutes, remove from heat,

and set aside. Combine the couscous, dried cranberries, olive

oil, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add meat

mixture to the bowl and toss to combine.

Bake the pumpkins: Evenly fill the hollowed-out pumpkins with

the stuffing mixture and place the pumpkins in a shallow baking

dish. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, bake for 25 minutes, remove

the foil, and bake for 10 more minutes. Serve immediately. | october 2017 | 93

misc | ask the petxpert

BY Bill Piechocki and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM

Were Your Pets Calm

During The Storm…Why?

As I sit here in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma totally exhausted

from the preparation for the storm, the emotional strain of

the storm itself with no electricity or internet, and the physical

depletion of my energy with the massive cleanup, I have to reflect on

how our pets and animals fared. Their acute sensitivity gives them a

completely different outlook on these events.

Prior to the arrival of the storm, they all exhibited some restless behavior.

The birds were searching their cages for that right spot on the

perch and in their flock where they felt safe. I observed that the cats

had very similar behavior in their special habitat room. The dogs were

a bit different. As man’s closest pet companion, we saw them with more

anxiety. They stayed clinging to us as their pack leader and reacted to

our energy. We on the other hand were worrying, praying, and prepping

for the worst. They were reflecting us.

Now during the storm, while us humans were anxious, nervous and

maybe fearful, they were all calm. A quick peek in the darkened cat

room, the beam of light from our flashlight revealed nothing but eyes.

They did not stir, but were lying in their own special spots very calm.

The birds stayed steady on their perches. There was no moving around

as is normal in the flight cages. There was no chirping or sounds. All

were silent but attentive. The dogs were also snuggled in their favorite

sleeping spots, again calm and peaceful. I also noticed that none ventured

to the food or water.

You see, they are not tied to the emotions we project when we fear

the unknown. They live in the here and now, relying on their instinct to

survive what they don’t know. They are preserving energy to be used if

there is real, not perceived danger.

The morning after the storm was completely a different scenario. As

I ventured out to access the excessive damage on our morning doggy

walk, these furry companions were happy and alive with new energy,

despite the rain, puddles and branches they encountered. The aviary

was alive as previously before, with the birds chirping back and forth

and happily eating at their food stations. The cats, well, all were up, active

and of course, looking for a fresh meal.

As pet parents and stewards of their wellbeing, we need to learn,

understand and be knowledgeable about their physiology, that is, how

they function both in mind and body and then provide them with their

real needs. We can learn from them if we understand what we are seeing.

Proper nutrition is key here. When you feed species appropriate,

fresh, all natural real foods, instead of chemically laced, processed junk;

it provides them an environment that is conducive to what they would

find in nature. It’s about providing them the tools to build strong health

and longevity through their own natural instincts and immune system.

not through chemical and pharmaceutical substitutes. When constantly

exposed to these synthetics and toxins, pets just like humans end up

with results such as stress, ADHD and poor health.

Nature has created these creatures in each individual’s own perfect

and unique way. It is our responsibility to respect and preserve

that lifestyle with utilizing the knowledge and understanding that is

unique to us humans.
