from the

editor

Cheers to a

New Year!

Idon’t know about you, but the older I get, the faster times seems

to fly by. I remember ushering in a new year and thinking I had

so much time before the next one – now the complete opposite

is true. I find myself asking my husband “How did this year get

past us so fast?” and “Where did the time go?”

So, as we bid 2021 good riddance – I once again invite a new year

with big eyes and a heart full of hope and wonder (I’m obviously an

incurable optimist). This year instead of making resolutions and setting

myself up for failure (I rarely keep them), I will simply promise to

just be a better human every day and pay it forward whenever I can.

C. Ron Allen lives his life giving back. If we follow his example, the

world would be a much better place. We are proud to feature Mr. Allen

as our January City Person and share with you his many accomplishments

for the youth in our amazing City and County. He’s a former

reporter and a Navy Veteran, and now a mentor to thousands of children

in Palm Beach County. Read about C. Ron and how he found his

passion for at risk youth inside this issue.

‘Mens sana in corpore sano’ means ‘A sound mind in a sound body’.

This is a famous quote by the pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Thales.

He says what we all now understand and know to be true – there is

an undeniable link between physical exercise, mental equilibrium,

and the ability to enjoy life! In this issue Dr. Safranski explains to us

that movement is essential to overall health, keeping us limber and

able to avoid developing stiffness in joints. Ashley Sica gives us tips

on “Jumpin’ into the New Year” and how to begin a healthy routine.

There is no better time to get started on a sound mind and body than

a new year!

Have a Happy and Healthy 2022!

The

wound is

the place

where

the light

enters

you.

Slack By The Sea .5K Charity

Run Raises Over $15K For

Veterans

Slack by the Sea .5K

announced that the

charity ‘race,’ held on

Sunday, November 21,

2021 at Hopportunities,

raised $15,295 for the Help Our Wounded (HOW) Foundation,

whose mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals,

families, and communities by advocating for and

providing access to hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a means of

treating brain injuries and abnormalities.

After their successful inaugural event in 2019, the beloved

Slack by the Sea .5K returned this year, with participants, or

but they are a significant part

of our community. For example, Palm

Sarah E. Huang is selected as the poster artist for 2022 Delray

Affair! Huang is a Taiwanese-American artist based in

Delray Beach, FL. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting

from Florida Atlantic University in 2015. Huang has exhibited

her evocative, visceral abstract paintings, drawings, and

installations locally, nationally, and internationally since 2012.

Most recently, her exhibition record includes The Box Gallery,

1310 Gallery – Sailboat Bend, Ali Cultural Arts, The Pompano

Beach Cultural Center, Coral Springs Museum of Art, Arts Garage,

and many more. She is currently an Artist in Residence at

Arts Warehouse in Delray Beach.

Huang explains for inspiration for the poster: Delray Beach

is one of the fastest-growing cultural centers in South Florida.

Everywhere you look, a fusion of the arts and business is evident.

In this image, she wanted to capture an iconic piece of

Downtown Delray and show a different perspective of Pineapple

Grove of someone exiting through the archway. A painting

merged with the sky symbolizes the individual leaving Pineapple

Grove, while daydreaming about the art they experienced

in Delray’s local galleries and cultural hubs. This design aimed

to highlight how the arts are an essential part of the city’s culture

through the Pineapple Grove archway leading to the Arts

District and how the Delray Affair celebrates this aspect of the

city’s culture, fusing arts and business through the Delray Affair

each year. As the Delray Affair approaches its 60th year, she

wanted to celebrate what makes the city stand out among others

- and its how Delray Beach embraces the arts in all of its

facets. Visit DelrayAffair.com.

your strong feeling which help you develop priorities and

connections?

month to hear a presentation and a discussion about pertinent

topics while enjoying light refreshments. All are welcome. The

Interfaith Cafe promotes interfaith dialogue, awareness, and

understanding by uniting people of different faiths and/or cultural

Delray Beach Golf Club

BY Retief Strauss

My name is Retief Strauss, I live in Boynton Beach and I

have been here since 2015. I emigrated from South Africa

and brought with me my experience and knowledge in

the golf industry. I completed my South African PGA Certification in

2014 while working at a semi-private Country Club. After working

there for 4 years I moved to the US to work at Addison Reserve

Country Club where I started in the bag room. I quickly moved up

from there and worked my way to the Assistant Professional role

where I continued for 5 years. After Addison Reserve I worked as

a Field Service Representative for Srixon/Cleveland/XXIO/ASICS

up until my recent start as the new Director of Golf at Delray

Beach Golf Club. At Delray Beach Golf Club, I offer my teaching

expertise for any level of player and any part of their game. The

Delray Beach Golf Club, is open 7 days a week and always ready to

welcome guests with smiling faces. Tee times are available 7 days

in advance and can be made online, on the phone, or in person.

Posh properties

BY Anthony Addeo

Hi, I’m Anthony Addeo, and I, along with Jonathan Russo,

have created a local well connected, and trusted real

estate team at Posh Properties. Jonathan and I have

known each other for more than 20 years and felt we would work

well together, as we grew up in the area, we know the terrain, we

share a passion for fitness, exotic cars, boating, and basically,

the Florida Lifestyle. We are dedicated to customer service that

excels expectations, and our competitive nature is what continues

to make our team the team to beat. We both graduated from

Boca High School, I went on to graduate from FAU, ultimately

returning to run our family business that continues to this day.

Jonathan’s entrepreneurial nature drove him to create multiple

thriving businesses in the area and real estate was the natural

next step. These backgrounds and our connections have helped

us integrate our businesses together, creating an incredible

network of customers, properties and investments. If you’re

looking to work with a successful, local, trusted real estate team,

give us a call at (561) 414-7484 or visit one of our 3 offices. We

look forward to guiding you to a successful closing.

of 2022, it’s a great time to reflect and rebalance. January

is Get a Balanced Life Month and you’re invited to treat your

body and mind to a little balance at Coco Connections Market.

Held the first Sunday of every month (Sunday, January 2 for this

month) beginning at 9 a.m. at Veterans Park, the Market is a

have the opportunity to peruse goods from 30 vendors, health

and wellness professionals with various healing modalities, live

music, and two free yoga/meditation/fitness classes per event.

so you can also give back some good vibes as you’re supporting

local crafters and makers. Not to mention, Veterans Park is

a lovely waterfront, open-air venue that is perfect for enjoying

some people, boat and dog watching in the shade, which is a

perfect to-do for your weekend! Veterans Park is located at 802

goods from local artists, but there is a fantastic chance

that you can see these artists in action! Regardless if you have

an artistic bone in your body, or that art ship sailed right past

you, art is something worth celebrating and should be done so

often. January is Celebration of Life Month and grab your walking

shoes and your artsy friends and head to the Avenue for the

First Friday Art Walk. The First Friday Art Walk is a nighttime

event that encourages strolling and discovering the vibrant art

scene in Downtown Delray Beach through a self-guided tour

of our art galleries and studios. If you are familiar with the art

happenings but just need a refresh, or have never ventured

around Delray’s art scene before, you’re in for a treat because

it’s a night focused just on art, artists and art lovers. The First


Friday Art Walk is held Friday, January 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.

and you can meander at your own pace as you navigate

all the artistic nooks and crannies peppered throughout

downtown. Please visit www.downtowndelraybeach.com

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

It’s a battle royale! If you’re looking for something a

little different to do this month, look no further than

Knife Fight Delray. No protective gear required, just a

thirst and hunger for seeing local chefs battle it out! Knife

Fight Delray is a chef versus chef non-profit event benefiting

the EJS Project, a local organization that helps our local

youth. Each month two chefs and their assistants will

battle head-to-head in an hour-long competition for bragging

rights. Competing chefs will be announced the night

of the event, and they’ll be presented with the special ingredients

they will have to use to prepare dishes to present

to industry judges. The special ingredients will even be

sponsored by local businesses, so it’s ultra-close to home.

It’s like a Food Network battle right in our own backyard!

The event is hosted by Chef Koby Wexler at Rose’s Daughter

American Trattoria, and the January event is one of

the six events before the grand finale. The January experience

is held Tuesday, January 4 at 7:30 p.m. and tickets

are $25 per person and include one complimentary drink

and complimentary welcome bite. Rose’s Daughter American

Trattoria is located at 169 N.E. Second Ave. Please visit

www.knifefightdelray.com for more information and to

purchase tickets.

We can all agree that it was a long holiday season

taking advantage of all opportunities to be social

again. And what goes better with social events

that delicious libations and tasty treats! If your body is

screaming for a holiday hiatus this January, show it some

TLC (because, hey!, there will be another event coming up

here soon, that’s for sure). January 1 through 7 is Diet Resolution

Week and if you need a little healthy kick in the right

step, the good people at Purlife Cafe are here to help with

their promise of “fit, fast and fresh.” Their Superfood Power

Bowl, made with quinoa, wild rice, avocado, walnuts,

broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette

($13.50) is definitely a good choice for getting your energy

back without sacrificing on flavor. Or indulge in their signature

soups, which include black bean tortilla, broccoli,

carrot ginger, and spinach lentil (among others, all $6).

Show your inner queen or king some love with the Greek

Goddess Salad, made with romaine and mixed greens, red

onions, kalamata olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, red pepper,

feta cheese, pepperoncini and Greek vinaigrette ($15). The

Hummus & Avocado Wrap is another crowd pleaser and

includes mixed greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions,

red pepper, carrots, red cabbage, avocado, hummus and

Greek vinaigrette ($14.50). See, with a little help, you’ll

get your body back in pristine condition in no time! Purlife

Cafe is located at 45 N.E. Second Ave. Please visit www.

purlife.com or call (561) 276-7387 for more information

and to place online orders.

Cornell Art Museum Exhibit Brings

Cutting Edge Contemporary Artwork

COPYRIGHTED

Thirty years of Old School Square’s (OSS) influence is seen in

this exhibit with immersive installations, interactive exhibitions,

and contemporary art.

OSS was the catalyst for revitalizing Downtown Delray and the

exhibit shows how art and culture have influenced it.

Tyler Levitetz installed 100 colorful metal sculptures showing

our diversity. Guests can walk around the installation and take

photos with the sculptures.

Giannina Dwin’s installation features salt sculptures paired with

gold gilded plexiglass replicas of the Old School Square buildings.

The gallery is darkly lit, with illumination on the art as a tribute

to its importance in the community. Freddy Jouwayed’s “OMEN”

depicts screens in the shape of the Museum building, deconstructed

and almost adrift.

The red walls signify a “code red” to save the Square. Alex Trimino

installed a mixed-media neon work that’s 26-feet high. On

loan from Long-Sharp Gallery in Indianapolis is a work by the late

David Spiller and debuting in their first American museum, are

UK artists Spiller + Cameron. Columbian artists Miriam Londoño

brought artwork, as well as American mixed-media artist Lavett

Ballard.

Robert Indiana’s works: “HOPE” and “HEAL” portray the current

(and controversial) theme of the exhibition.

The museum closes January 29, 2022 (their lease is terminated

February 9, and artwork has to be returned).

Admission is free. Call 561-243-7922, x306.

Gotta See

entertainment | gotta SEE By lisa marie

January 7

► The 355 - When a top-secret weapon falls into mercenary

hands, wild card CIA agent Mason “Mace” Brown (Jessica Chastain)

will need to join forces with rival badass German agent Marie (Diane

Kruger), former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist

Khadijah (Lupita Nyong’o), and skilled Colombian psychologist

Graciela (Penélope Cruz) on a lethal, breakneck mission to retrieve

it, while also staying one-step ahead of a mysterious woman, Lin Mi

Sheng (Fan Bingbing), who’s tracking their every move. As the action

rockets around the globe from the cafes of Paris to the markets of

Morocco to the wealth & glamour of Shanghai, the quartet of women

will forge a tenuous loyalty that could protect the world—or get

them killed.

► The Tender Bar - The Tender Bar tells the story of J.R. (Sheridan),

a fatherless boy growing up in the glow of a bar where the bartender,

his Uncle Charlie (Affleck), is the sharpest and most colorful of

an assortment of quirky and demonstrative father figures. As the

boy’s determined mother (Rabe) struggles to provide her son with

40 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

opportunities initially denied to her — and leave the dilapidated home

of her outrageous if begrudgingly supportive father (Christopher

Lloyd) — J.R. soon begins to gamely, if not always gracefully, pursue

his romantic and professional dreams — with one foot persistently

placed in Uncle Charlie’s bar. The Tender Bar is directed by Oscarwinning

American actor / filmmaker George Clooney.

► A Hero - Rahim (Amir Jadidi) is in prison because of a debt he

was unable to repay. During a two-day leave, he tries to convince his

creditor to withdraw his complaint against the payment of part of

the sum. But things don’t go as planned. When he returns a woman’s

purse full of coins, he is hailed as a hero, but the complexities of

society and old grudges come back to ruin his newfound fame.

January 14

► Deep Water - A well-to-do husband who allows his wife to have

affairs in order to avoid a divorce becomes a prime suspect in the

disappearance of her lovers. Stars Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas, Tracy

Letts and more.

► Hotel Transylvania: Transformania - Drac and the pack are

back, like you’ve never seen them before in Hotel Transylvania:

Transformania. Reunite with your favorite monsters for an all-new

adventure that presents Drac with his most terrifying task yet. When

Van Helsing’s mysterious invention, the ‘Monsterfication Ray,’ goes

haywire, Drac and his monster pals are all transformed into humans,

and Johnny becomes a monster! In their new mismatched bodies,

Drac, stripped of his powers, and an exuberant Johnny, loving life as a

monster, must team up and race across the globe to find a cure before

it’s too late, and before they drive each other crazy. With help from

Mavis and the hilariously human Drac Pack, the heat is on to find a

way to switch themselves back before their transformations become

permanent.

the “evil” Mayor, with reasons of his own for keeping Sesame Street

hidden from the world.

► Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre - Super spy Orson Fortune

new weapons technology wielded by billionaire arms broker Greg

Simmonds (Hugh Grant). Reluctantly teamed with some of the

A Stranger’s Game

By Colleen Coble

Released January 4

wealthy hotel heiress.

A Even though Torie Bergstrom hasn’t been

back to Georgia since she was ten, she’s happy

to arrange a job for her best friend at one of the

family properties on Jekyll Island.

A suspicious death.

But when Torie learns that her best friend

has drowned, she knows it is more than a tragic

accident: Lisbeth was terrified of water and

wouldn’t have gone swimming by choice.

A fight for the truth.

Torie goes to the hotel under an alias,

desperate to find answers. When she meets Joe

Abbott and his daughter rescuing baby turtles,

she finds a tentative ally.

The more Torie and Joe dig, the more elusive

the truth seems. One thing is clear: someone

will risk anything—even more murder—to keep

their secrets buried.

When You Are Mine

By Michael Robotham

Released January 4

In this page-turning psychological thriller from

an author who Stephen King called “an absolute

master,” a young female police officer faces

danger on all fronts—from a clever victim of

abuse, her colleagues on the force, and even her

own mobster father.

Philomena McCarthy is a young, ambitious

police office with the elite Metropolitan Police

in London. When she responds to a domestic

violence call, she finds the victim, Tempe Brown,

trying to protect her abuser, a married man

named Darren Goodall, a decorated Scotland Yard

detective afraid of no one. As Philomena pursues

the case against him, she not only encounters

resistance from her police force colleagues but

also becomes dangerously entangled with the

victim—who is not at all whom she appears to

be—much to the increasing endangerment of

herself and Henry, her fiancée.

Complicating matters is Philomena’s

estranged father Edward McCarthy, a powerful

man who has built a criminal empire along with

his brothers. Philomena has long tried to pursue

her career as a police officer without her father’s

involvement, but as she falls under suspicion

46 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

of stalking and harassing Goodall, her father

becomes involved.

As the situation escalates, Tempe’s sinister

maneuvers further entangle Philomena in a

web of secrets, corruption, and murder, putting

Philomena’s impending marriage, career, and

very survival in jeopardy…

To Paradise

By Hanya Yanagihara

Released January 11

From the author of the classic A Little Life—a

bold, brilliant novel spanning three centuries

and three different versions of the American experiment,

about lovers, family, loss and the elusive

promise of utopia.

In an alternate version of 1893 America, New

York is part of the Free States, where people may

live and love whomever they please (or so it

seems). The fragile young scion of a distinguished

family resists betrothal to a worthy suitor, drawn

to a charming music teacher of no means. In a

1993 Manhattan besieged by the AIDS epidemic,

a young Hawaiian man lives with his much

older, wealthier partner, hiding his troubled

childhood and the fate of his father. And in 2093,

in a world riven by plagues and governed by

totalitarian rule, a powerful scientist’s damaged

granddaughter tries to navigate life without

him—and solve the mystery of her husband’s

disappearances.

These three sections are joined in an

enthralling and ingenious symphony, as recurring

notes and themes deepen and enrich one

another: A townhouse in Washington Square Park

in Greenwich Village; illness, and treatments that

come at a terrible cost; wealth and squalor; the

weak and the strong; race; the definition of family,

and of nationhood; the dangerous righteousness

of the powerful, and of revolutionaries; the

longing to find a place in an earthly paradise, and

the gradual realization that it can’t exist. What

unites not just the characters, but these Americas,

are their reckonings with the qualities that make

us human: Fear. Love. Shame. Need. Loneliness.

The Good Son

By Jacquelyn Mitchard

Released January 18th

From #1 New York Times bestselling author

Jacquelyn Mitchard comes the gripping, emotionally

charged novel of a mother who must

help her son after he is convicted of a devastating

crime.

What do you do when the person you love

best becomes unrecognizable to you? For Thea

Demetriou, the answer is both simple and

agonizing: you keep loving him somehow.

Stefan was just seventeen when he went

to prison for the drug-fueled murder of his

girlfriend, Belinda. Three years later, he’s

released to a world that refuses to let him move

on. Belinda’s mother, once Thea’s good friend,

galvanizes the community to rally against him

to protest in her daughter’s memory. The media

paints Stefan as a symbol of white privilege and

indifferent justice. Neighbors, employers, even

some members of Thea’s own family turn away.

Meanwhile Thea struggles to understand

her son. At times, he is still the sweet boy he

has always been; at others, he is a young man

tormented by guilt and almost broken by

his time in prison. But as his efforts to make

amends meet escalating resistance and threats,

Thea suspects more forces are at play than just

community outrage. And if there is so much

she never knew about her own son, what other

secrets has she yet to uncover—especially about

the night Belinda died?

Arthritis and Chiropractic

Arthritis. We’ve all heard of it and it affects some, if not most

of us. Arthritis has many forms and conditions, but for the

purposes of this article we are talking about osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis or OA is defined as the degeneration of joint

cartilage and the underlying bone and it most commonly occurs

from middle age and onward in life. OA can happen in

any joint, but today we will address OA of the spine.

Quick anatomy lesson, we (humans) have 7 cervical, 12 thoracic,

and 5 lumbar vertebrae and in between each one of those vertebrae

is a disc. That disc has two parts. The inside is a gelatinous

material called the nucleus pulposus and the outside portion of

the disc call the annulus fibrosis. The annular material is a strong

durable material that bonds to the top and bottom of the vertebrae

that it is in between. These discs act as the shock absorbers

of the spine. Just like in your car these wear out after lots of miles

or improper use. Improper use can occur due to poor biomechanics,

poor posture, overuse, or even injury. The discs are a very viscous

material and need movement in order to get their nutrition

and hydration. If the spine is injured, or biomechanics are altered

the discs are not getting their proper nutrients and hydration, so

they dehydrate or degenerate. When this happens, you have degenerative

disc disease. Nothing to worry about - it’s not really a

“disease,” it’s just a name. However, when the disc is degenerated

and dehydrated. The body views that as unstable and locks down

the muscles around the joints and protects the spine by laying

down more bone, causing osteoarthritis.

48 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

There are other concerns in this process as well. During the degeneration

process, the likelihood of developing disc herniations

are increased, as well as an increase in symptoms such as sciatica.

How can this be treated? First and foremost, MOVEMENT is the

key to life. Stretching, going to the gym, going on walks, getting

out and experiencing this beautiful country of ours is going to

help keep those joints lubricated. For the spine, getting adjusted

is going to introduce motion to the joints that are stuck in the protective

mechanism we talked about earlier, it is also going to help

rehydrate the discs over time. For disc herniations, non-surgical

spinal decompression is the most aggressive conservative treatment

that can be done to help with herniations and sciatica. Coupling

decompression with Class IV laser therapy will bring more

healing properties into the joints.

So, if you suspect you have arthritis, don’t just sit around, get

up and MOVE!

Jumpin’ Into The New Year!

The holidays are over and you’re ready to de-fluff and jump back on the

fitness wagon. Like most, you have most likely set some fitness related

New Year Resolution. Here are some tips to make sure these resolutions

are attainable and will work for you. It is all about having goals and plan!

A healthier version of you is just a couple steps away!

1. Make Realistic Resolutions

Don’t set yourself up for failure before you begin!

Set goals that are attainable and realistic. The

more accomplished you feel the more likely you

are to stay motivated and pushing toward your

goals. A resolution shouldn’t be a fantasy. If

you’ve never lifted weights, attempting to do

so 7 days per week is probably setting yourself

up for disappointment. For most people,

breaking or setting new habits doesn’t happen

overnight. The key to sustainable resolutions

is to make small changes gradually. If your

goal is to go from never running to finishing

a half-marathon, start training gradually.

Begin by walking a few miles twice a week,

and steadily increase the workload to jogging,

and then running over several months.

Just keep the word “realistic” in your mind and

you’ll be off to a good start!

2. Get Specific With Your Goals

Resolutions should be both specific and measurable.

Writing down your goals is not only a great way

to accomplish them, but your list can also help you

figure out the exact steps needed to get where you

want to go. “I want to lose weight” is a pretty common

New Year resolution, but how exactly do you

go from point A to point B? Instead, try setting a

more specific goal. For instance: “I want to lose 10

pounds over the next 6 weeks by eliminating fast

food meals and going to the gym 3 to 4 times per

week. I’ll then maintain my goal weight for 6 months

before setting any other new goals.” The more specific

your goal the better your results will be. The vaguer your

goals are the harder it will be to attain them.

3. Set Non-Superficial Goals

Looking good in a swimsuit is always a good goal but superficial

goals usually lose their appeal after endless weeks

of diet and exercise. Instead, try picking a goal related to

health and happiness. For example, regular exercise has

50 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

awesome benefits such as lowering cholesterol, boosting overall

energy, and even increasing happiness and decreasing

depression. Bringing some deeper intentions to

your workout can make all the difference in sticking

to your goals. Looking good in a swimsuit should

come secondary to your main goal.

4. Buddy Up

Find a friend or someone with likeminded

goals to keep and hold you accountable. Accountability

is huge! You are much more likely

to stay on track when you have someone

to answer to besides yourself. A buddy

should also serve to help motivate and

keep things real. They should have no

problem telling you to put that French

fry down and get your booty to the

gym when you’re lacking your own

motivation. If your buddy isn’t doing

their job, fire them and find a new one!

There is always someone looking to become

healthy and fit.

5. Reevaluate

Resolutions Often

How many people resolve to finish a

marathon, only to realize they dislike distance

running? Or decide to take up yoga

and realize they want something fasterpaced?

A lot of things seem fun from a

distance but might not be a good fit. If this

happens to you, switch gears and pick a different

resolution. Don’t be afraid to switch it

up if it isn’t working. You’re much more likely

to stick with something that you truly enjoy.

Jameel McCline

a.k.a big time

Getting knocked down throughout life is inevitable, but how you get up

and move onward, eventually defines and illuminates a person’s soul.

Jameel McCline knows a thing or two about stumbling, yet his soldier-on

attitude radiates every single time he stands back up.

COPYRIGHTED


Calling an orphanage home since the age of seven, McCline

credits the Port Jefferson, New York living quarters for a

quality education, keeping him clothed, and providing life’s

basic necessities.

“In Harlem we were extremely poor, but when you’re that young

you don’t realize it. I wound up in numerous foster residences, but

always kept in touch with my biological family who all live in South

Florida today. When I aged out of the system, I found myself not

knowing where to turn and ended up on the

wrong side of the law. A variety of people in

the community extended their hands to help

me back, which truly shaped me into the humanitarian

I strive to be.”

McCline has prioritized philanthropy, joining

organizations such as Parkland Cares and

Safe Harbor which are platforms that supply

supplemental life guidance and assistance

for those in need. Jameel additionally structured

an outreach to bring laptops into a Delray

Beach community center.

“I was raised by the collective. As you grow

up dependent on the kindness of strangers,

that’s who’s furnishing your existence. When

I visited one of the local Delray centers and

saw how run-down and dated the computers

were, I got a couple of my friends together

and explained how we really needed to help

the community out by providing, instead of

just talking about it. This experience also

motivated me to try my hand at politics so I

could reach a wider audience.”

In 2014, McCline threw his name in the

hat to represent Florida’s 20th district as a

Democratic congressional candidate running

against the late incumbent Alcee Hastings.

“I thought it was time for a change, and

wanted to see real action on the ground for

real people. When I witnessed a number of

injustices some of the population dealt with

in more forgotten areas, I felt compelled to be a force for positive

reshaping. Although I did not gain a seat in Congress, the process

afforded me a great deal of new wisdom.”

Rewind a few decades, and you would find Jameel spending his

days at workout gyms in the New York City area, when ultimately

an individual approached him and asked if he was interested in

training to become a boxer.

“He gave me his card and said, ‘give me a call so we can discuss

your new career.’ After we spoke, he convinced me to move into his

home and begin training. I was twenty-five years old before I ever

put a pair of gloves on, and six years later I was fighting for the

heavyweight championship of the world at Mandalay Bay in Vegas

on HBO... that’s unheard of. Boxing is a beautiful sport. It’s brutal,

but beautiful... and when you’re amongst the best in the world it’s

not just fighting, but an engaging chess match in the ring.”

McCline’s natural abilities and enigmatic determination led him

to a career winning record of 41-13-3 including 24 knockouts.

Boxing is a

beautiful sport.

It’s brutal, but

beautiful... and

when you’re

amongst the best

in the world it’s

not just fighting,

but an engaging

chess match in

the ring.

With no amateur background, he held a steady top ten ranking for

the majority of his pugilist career, including fighting four times

for the world title, and was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of

Fame in 2019. A certain amount of notoriety comes with reaching

the upper echelon of the boxing world, and in 2009 Jameel was invited

to train in Russia with one of their best, Alexander Povetkin.

McCline would return to that country three years later for his last

professional fight. But what happens when you hang up the gloves

up for the last time?

“I don’t distinguish myself simply as a

fighter... I just happened to be really good at

it. Lots of boxers just identify as such, but I

used my skills to move laterally in business.

My best career moment to date, was when I

liquidated my position at a consulting firm

in the laboratory industry, as it signified to

me what I always wanted to achieve.”

Jameel prides himself in becoming highly

involved in his community since moving to

South Florida. Pulling from his roots, Mc-

Cline is connected with the Delray Beach

Boxing Club located in East Delray. He has

brought some of the best fighters and trainers

in the world here to utilize the facilities.

He was also a member of the Delray Beach

Chamber of Commerce for several years.

McCline is additionally currently involved

with Vocodia, which is an automated call

center that eliminates human consequence.

As he described it, there is no calling in late

or sick and the AI can answer every question

thoroughly.

“The future is definitely in artificial intelligence.

You’ve probably spoken to one without

even knowing because it sounds so real.

This truly is a fascinating product, and the

technology is so top-notch that we have built

an entire platform for this company along

with a very strong team to revolutionize the

contact call center industry.”

Where an average person may find complacency, Jameel encapsulates

ambition. “I’m always thinking what’s next... what can I do

next to stand out and be great? My company Big Time Innovations

COPYRIGHTED

has launched our entertainment division which includes branding,

marketing, spokesperson brand ambassadors, and business

development in the artificial intelligence and NFT space. I still

partake in speaking engagements focusing on the emerging future

markets. When I give a speech, I dispense a small portion of

my background for inspiration, but those that come to listen to me

are already motivated... the inventive thinkers. Sometimes it’s just

how to put that motivation in a discipline format, varying from

what they’ve done.”

Jameel cultivated his indomitable spirit every time he fought

back from defeat or went against the grain.

“There are many ways to move around between the ropes, but in

life there’s only one way... and that’s forward.”

Elena Carissimo

Practicing

What She Preaches

By Suzanne Boyd | photos by Nicole Marie Photography

How Luxury Real Estate Agent

Elena Carissimo not only sold her

home for top dollar in this insane

market, but also bought a new one.

Elena Carissimo, Real Estate aGENT with Lang ReaLTy

56 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Elena, her husband and their TWO daughters outside THEir new Delray Beach HOME

Luxury Real Estate Agent Elena Carissimo hears it all the time.

“If I sell my home, where will I go?”

As someone who sold her home this year in Gulf Stream

and bought a new home in Delray Beach within a matter of months,

Carissimo says it can be done. The key is to follow her step-by-step

process for sellers and buyers.

Take Care of BIG Problems

Carissimo says some sellers are hesitant to do work on a home

they are about to put on the market, but you are leaving significant

money on the table when you don’t take care of the big problems.

“If the roof is 35 years old, it’s a big problem and that will hurt

you in the negotiating process,” says Carissimo.

Because the Italian-born real estate agent updated her roof, windows

and paint on her home before putting it on the market, she

was able to start a bidding war and sold it for well above the asking

price. She recouped her upgrade costs by ten-fold.

COPYRIGHTED

Stage yOur Home

The first impression is pivotal. You should remove family photos,

religious items and clutter. Carissimo says you want the sellers to

immediately feel like they belong in your home.

“I staged my own home because I have a design and staging background.

Remember, your home is personal. A real estate transaction

is not. The way you design for living in a home is different from

the way you design it when you’re selling,” says Carissimo.


Do Not Try TO Sell Off Market

Especially in this market, Carissimo says selling your home as a

pocket listing or selling to a neighbor can be costly. Before she put

her home on the market in Gulf Stream, a neighbor offered her one

price. She ended up selling for a much higher amount after her home

was on the market for less than 24 hours.

Hire the Right Person

There are many qualities you should look for in a real estate

agent: responsive, knowledgable, understands marketing and presentation,

but Carissimo believes - in this current market - you also

want someone who can be a tough negotiator.

“A lot of out-of-state people are looking for homes in our area

right now. Some are unscrupulous and taking advantage of sellers.

Many of my deals during this time have required careful and tough

negotiating. You need to make sure you have the right person on

your side,” says Carissimo, who went to law school in Italy before

moving to the United States.

Carissimo not only understands the legal side of the deal, but also

the design and staging aspect. She was a staging expert for many

years before getting her real estate license. The mother of two girls

has also moved her family numerous times, so she knows how challenging

the process can be. Like her own deal, where she negotiated

staying in her home for 7 months rent-free, giving herself a cushion

of time to find a new home - Carissimo also helps create the best

scenario for her clients in her negotiations.

Elena and her family just moved iNTO this Delray Beach HOME in November 2021

Act Quickly, NOT Cheap

Be careful about hiring a discount broker or trying to do the deal

yourself. You get what you pay for. The right real estate agent can help

you secure a new home quickly. Carissimo did it for herself. She found

a home the day before it went on the market and called up the seller to

negotiate a deal. She bought the home within hours. She also was able

to help clients who got shut out of several deals because they couldn’t

offer cash. Her legal background and communication skills allowed

her the upper hand in a field of cash offers and she was able to secure a

contract on a new home for her clients, who had all but given up hope.

“You don’t need to have cash in this market, but you do need to

know how to navigate a deal quickly without it, “ says Carissimo. “At

the end of the day, both buyers and sellers want to be treated with

respect and know that they got a fair deal. That’s always my goal.”

A Healthy Balanced Life Can Be

Yours - Meet Doctor Tony Willcox

By diane feen | photos by melissa korman

Let’s face it, life today can be stressful. Even the

most ardent followers of health protocols and a

healthy lifestyle might find themselves out of balance.

To some this is new, to others it might be an ongoing battle

with gravity, age, or chronic medical conditions. To quell the

battle within their bodies people often turn to medication

and surgery.

That is where Dr. Tony Willcox’s protocols differ from traditional

Western medicine. “Healing with alternative methods has been

very helpful with my clients,” said Dr. Tony, who has a Double Doctorate

in Acupuncture, a Clinical Doctorate in the US, and a PhD in

Acupuncture from China.

Dr. Tony has treated people with medical issues ranging from insomnia

to digestive complaints, depression, anxiety, back, neck and

knee pain, infertility, and other ailments. He has been the Official

Acupuncture Doctor for the NHL Florida Panthers (for seven years)

and a UFC Fight Team Official Acupuncture Doctor for five years.

But Dr. Tony does not measure health in numerical sequence,

he goes deeper into healing patients by way of numerous paths.

“We have to go deeper within and look at our own effects of stress

and get more connected to our internal ‘space of peace’ which resides

in us all.”

Dr. Tony has not only had a clinical acupuncture practice for the

past 17 years, but he has helped many people using traditional Chinese

Medicine. “This Eastern medicine model has served a valuable

role helping people with various issues find balance; simple and

complex,” adds Dr. Tony.

One of the treatments within this realm is Energy Medicine.

Since the body is an energy field, there are many ways to influence

the energy within. Dr. Tony understands this elusive, yet pertinent

part of healing, and has tools that for centuries have been used to

clear, balance, and harmonize energy in the body. The results are

astounding and powerful.

“This was the most profound healing I have ever experienced. I

was almost in disbelief as I felt things moving shifting and healing.

Within minutes of meeting me, Dr. Tony understood the root cause

of my symptoms and nipped them in the bud,” said Elizabeth from

the Documentary Heal.

It’s clear when meeting Dr. Tony that he is undoubtably a man on

a mission to heal. You can feel it when visiting his serene healing

sanctuary on Atlantic Avenue, and after speaking to him it’s as if

your molecules have been rearranged neatly where they should be.

“Many of us have had an understanding that something feels off,

or the energy of our body doesn’t feel right. At Acupuncture Zen

you find yourself in the vortex of the healing realm with the perfect

blend of treatment just for you.”

The treatments range from Acupuncture to Herbal Medicine,

Professional Physician CBD cream or sublingual’s, K Laser therapy,

Crystal Light Chakra Treatment, or hands on healing.

There is one thing that Dr. Tony makes very clear – you must be

open to becoming healthy. “The key is to let go of old ideas or opinions

and be open-minded about treatment” says Dr. Tony. Trust and

let him guide you through the healing process.

Acupuncture is a proven solution toward better health. “Many

patients are blinded by the idea that acupuncture is painful and

‘needles.’ But they are so tiny, and the techniques I use are so profound,

that I call them tuning forks or healing sticks. Why be afraid

of something so instrumental to your healing?”

There are many styles of acupuncture tailored for each patient.

Nothing like Crystal Light Therapy TO get the Chakras Vibrating

Dr. Tony with UFC Fighter Charles “Boston sTRONG” Rosa. Calm BEFORE the storm

“Some patients don’t like certain sensations, so the technique and

type of “tuning forks” are adjusted for each patient. These healing

sticks are attuning and changing your vibrational field of energy.”

This field of energy does change how you feel, just ask Jody. “I saw

Dr. Tony for a fireball in my neck. I was reluctant because acupuncture

didn’t work for me before. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! After 4 sessions

I was totally pain free and have been so for a number of years!

Dr. Tony is highly trained, and the practice is very professional. If I

have pain anywhere, ever again, Dr. Tony will be my first stop.”

Acupuncture is a great support in your quest for health, healing,

and wellness. It gives one a relaxed feeling of overall harmony and

health. “Most patients leave the office on Cloud Nine,” said Dr. Tony.

Other types of medical issues Dr. Tony has been asked to treat

are for Long Haul Covid Symptoms (LHCS). Many of the lingering

health concerns after a bout of Covid can be debilitating. At Acupuncture

Zen, LHCS are treated with acupuncture, herbal medicine,

and specialty CBD products. It’s common for patients to get relief

from fatigue, insomnia, headaches, shortness of breath, and a myriad

of other symptoms.

“During these times, whether you have had covid or not, we

should all be aware of the importance of keeping the immune

function strong. Chinese medicine helps balance the system with

regulation of Qi and blood, tonifying the immune system, as well as

maintaining harmony of Yin and Yang.”

Whether you have Acupuncture treatments, Crystal Light Therapy,

Laser Therapy, or healing hands, you will likely leave feeling

relaxed, de-stressed and rejuvenated with a balanced body, mind,

and spirit.

That is exactly what happened for Delores. “Dr. Tony, I am so happy

to have found you. The treatment is not only helping me with my

neck and back pain, but also with my mind. I feel more relaxed and

have a smile on my face everywhere I go. I know it sounds weird,

but I feel happy.”

Enter the healing realm of Acupuncture Zen where you can get

the perfect blend of treatment designed just for you. Dr. Tony is a

Modern-Day Shaman helping all who enter. He Welcomes You!

Cole Leavitt

The #1 Real Estate Broker

In The Entire Kingdom

By nicol jenkins | photos by melissa korman

His knowledge of Real Estate and his expertise in investment

properties has made Cole Leavitt a mover and shaker in the

High-end Luxury and Investment Real Estate markets.

Because of his success in guiding clients in the Investment real

estate world, Cole has quickly become the preferred broker of

choice to many high-level executives, celebrities, athletes and

even lottery winners when they are searching for their new homes in

the South Florida market.

Cole Leavitt, CEO of CPRE Organization Inc., was not only involved

in the recent sale of the 2nd highest sale ever in Delray Beach at $33

million….but Cole is also quickly becoming the “Go-To” Broker for

many of the Hollywood Elite that have decided to make South Florida

their new home. One such celebrity being the top star from the popular

new T.V. series, Yellowstone. After understanding exactly what

that client and his family were looking for, Cole knew right where to

direct them. Cole was right and they closed soon after.

Instead of focusing on the emotional aspect of buying real estate,

Cole approaches the properties more from a financial angle whether

it is a Multifamily Property or High-end Luxury home. “Our clientele

is usually very financially well off and they appreciate the straight

talk regarding dollars and cents. After all, at the end of the day, all real

estate is an investment,” says Cole.

60 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

But Cole is no rookie to real estate. He brings his clients not only a

wealth of real estate broker experience but also a lifetime of knowledge

in real estate investing as a 3rd generation real estate professional.

Known by many as the King of Multi-Family, Cole has been

helping clients buy and sell multi-family units from 2 to 250, for

more than 13 years. Because of this expertise, many money managers

and high-level executives have reached out to Cole for his high

level of understanding and negotiating of real estate assets.

Clients praise the Real Estate Broker for his dedication and honesty.

“Cole Leavitt is a straightforward broker and asset to have on

your side. Cole answered all my questions, and his honesty was why

I chose him to represent my property. I would recommend Cole,”

stated Paul S.

Another client Debra C. said, “Cole was interested in our needs and

delivered the bottom line that we asked for financially…All others

tried to give our property away.”

“I was extremely impressed with how Cole sold our property. Everything

he promised, he delivered on. To say we are pleased would

be an understatement. Best agent I ever worked with in 30 years of

real estate,” said another client Rodger F.

“We Care” is the motto of CPRE Organization. Offering a red-carpet

experience for their clients, Cole and his team are available to answer

questions 24/7 regarding real estate and investment properties.

“The most rewarding aspect of real estate for me is my ability to

understand exactly what the client’s needs are and find them what

they are truly desiring. Time and time again, I have had my clients

close on properties that they initially passed on because I spotted

an underlining factor that may have been overlooked previously,”

said Cole. “My company stands out for one main reason. It is ALWAYS

about the client, NEVER about me! Whatever the client sees and believes,

I guarantee to achieve.”

Cole has a long history in Real Estate. His grandparents owned

large apartment complexes throughout Chicago in the 60s, 70s, and

80s and following in their footsteps, he did his first land acquisition

while still in college. Upon graduating from Florida Atlantic University,

Cole chose a path in the construction industry and formed his

COPYRIGHTED


first company. That business would go on to become one of South

Florida’s leaders in its industry. Many of South Florida’s greatest

landmarks today still show his company’s work.

In 2000, while still running his first company, Cole formed his second

company. Although the concept for this company was a novel

idea at the time, Cole believed it to be the next big thing in real estate.

The concept was owners renting out their properties to vacationers.

He began purchasing properties in all the hottest tourist spots

throughout Florida. In 2008, Cole joined one of the top National

Real Estate firms. After just one year under his belt, Cole became a

top producer. Shortly after that, Cole was awarded the prestigious

“Deal Maker of the Year Award” by the Palm Beach County Board of

Realtors. Two years later, Cole would establish CPRE Organization

(CPRE) and go on to create the “King of Multi-Family” brand.

Today, Cole is offering his unique real estate services to clients in

both investment properties and high-end luxury. With a network following

that is local, national, and international, Cole has truly established

himself as a true expert in the field of real estate. For this reason,

Cole is often sought out as a guest speaker on the subject matter as

well. Cole truly is the King of Multi-Family and King of Luxury Real Estate,

and his knowledge and famous client network is second to none.

“The real estate marketing that we do is local, national, and international.

STAMM DEVELOPMENT GROUP

Bringing Their Expertise in the

Luxury Home Market to South Florida

By diane feen | photos by Nicholas Wnorowski from A1RMedia

Everyone knows South Florida – Palm Beach County in

particular – is the center of the real estate universe.

Fortune 500 companies are moving their headquarters here

and workers and retirees are flocking to this Mecca of sunshine

and serenity.

Stamm Development Group (“SDG”) is the newest private real estate

development company to land firmly on the ground in Delray

Beach. SDG is a leader in real estate development in Philadelphia,

and has aggressively expanded into South Florida.

SDG has purchased property on the Barrier Island and along the

Intracoastal in Delray Beach. They expect to bring over 12 projects to

the market in the next year, translating into 35+ ultra-luxury homes.

“We are working with the top architects, interior designers, engineers

and elite sales teams in Delray Beach to craft carefully curated

projects that are nothing like the market has ever seen before. We

have numerous deals in the works, and have established a strong development

pipeline creating a large and impressive infrastructure in

the Palm Beach County area. SDG has expanded into South Florida

with the intent to continue to organically grow with the South Florida

market,” said CEO and President of SDG, Michael Stamm.

Michael Stamm has a very impressive track record, having

formed SDG in 2014 after five years of real estate development and

62 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

investment experience. Since formation of SDG, he has successfully

acquired, entitled and developed a portfolio of large-scale multifamily

and mixed-use apartment complexes as well as high-end

luxury single-family homes. SDG has completed over one million

gross square-feet of new construction including 910 units across

68 projects, and $350M in closed real estate transactions.

With the expansion into South Florida, SDG has acquired – and

is in the midst of delivering - over $175 million of new construction

development in Palm Beach County. The projects are a mix of

luxury single-family homes and town homes tastefully designed to

be a blend of modern and coastal, bringing a Hamptons-esque flare

to the market. SDG has broken ground on several projects, with the

first homes ready in 2022.

Leading the sales and marketing efforts of some of their first

projects in Delray (10Palms and 2Lago) is Jennifer Kilpatrick,

Luxury and New Construction Specialist at the Corcoran Group in

Palm Beach County. Delray Beach’s newest ultra-luxury projects

from SDG are 10Palms and 2Lago. 10Palms is a luxury upscale and

vibrant collection of 10 town homes in the heart off one of Delray

Beach’s most desirable neighborhoods, Palm Trail. Located steps

COPYRIGHTED


from the Intracoastal and close to the beach and Atlantic Avenue,

10Palms is an oasis of tranquillity and a testament to luxury living

at its finest.

The town homes are what you would expect from a high-end

luxury builder: light-infused coastal modern style with floor to ceiling

sliding doors leading to a lushly landscaped private backyard,

personal pool and patio with summer kitchens.

These minimalistic modern spaces have spacious great rooms

highlighted by designer kitchens, high ceiling foyers and natural

light filled windows. There are multiple open terraces, spacious

bedrooms and large club rooms with wet bars perfect for entertaining.

Every designer detail has been carefully curated to create

a modern holistic living oasis. SDG brought a bit of Philadelphia

flare to South Florida with their award-winning design team in the

Northeast to Delray Beach.

“The SDG team is coming to the market with a great deal of energy

and thoughtfulness, taking the time to invest in our community

through charitable venues. They have also met with leaders

in the real estate industry to fully understand the pulse of what is

happening in the market,” said Jennifer Kilpatrick of the Jennifer

Kilpatrick team at Corcoran group.

As thoughtful as SDG is about real estate, they are equally as ardent

when it comes to philanthropy. Michael founded a non-profit,

The SDG Foundation in 2019, that serves and uplifts children and

families in need. Through persistent fundraising, strategic donations

and active volunteering, the SDG Foundation empowers their

neighbors, and improves the neighborhoods they live and work in.

SDG has already made inroads into the non-profit arena in Delray,

donating to Adopt-A-Family to provide Thanksgiving meals to

over 150 families in Palm Beach County and volunteering at the facility

to sort and package meal kits. The SDG Foundation has also

partnered with Feeding South Florida, donating $10,000 at their

recent ground-breaking ceremony for the 10Palms development

project. This donation will power a food distribution center for

two weeks, providing food to over 1,500 families throughout the

holidays in the Delray area. SDG has made a commitment to philanthropy

in Delray.

“We are a very philanthropically focused company and have

provided several scholarships to first-generation college students

in Philadelphia. We also mentor students and provide skills and

hands-on workforce education. We are excited to be a part of the

real estate market and philanthropy in the South Florida community.

This is only the beginning,” said Michael.

In Philadelphia, the SDG Foundation raised and donated over

$500,000. This includes Food care packages and other essentials

to hundreds of families through the COVID-19 pandemic. Spring

of 2022, the foundation will have distributed $100,000 of tuition

scholarships and new laptops for over 20 first generation college

students in Philadelphia Public Schools. They also partner with

a local school - the Liguori Academy. SDG provides an internship

program for high school students to earn class credit while gaining

exposure to the workforce and mentorship programs.

“SDG has made an incredible commitment to their people, the

communities they work in and their passion for excellence in everything

they do. Having worked with many local developers, I

am excited to share the passion and professionalism of the Stamm

Group as they enter into this market with a bang. They have a huge

investment of time, talent and treasure at a very high level.”

colorful libations and the joyful sounds of locals and area visitors.

The popular Delray Beach gathering spot is officially welcoming

Tammie Sellman –

Wayside House

By Tammie Sellman

like to ask you to each close your eyes. I would like for you

to picture a woman who is important in your life. It may be

“I’d

a Mother, Grandmother, Friend, Aunt, Cousin, Daughter or

any other personally influential female. Picture her laughing and joyous.

Picture a time when she was experiencing sheer joy with you.

Perhaps it was at a big event or simply chatting and laughing about

memories and life such as a marriage or the birth of a child.”

“Now I’d like you to picture that same woman in a much different

state. Picture her overcome with stress and sadness. Picture her

broken and worn. Picture her hopeless and helpless. Picture her

withdrawn and weeping or clenching her fists in anger. You may be

overcome with great sadness yourself as you picture this person in

such a state.”

Please open your eyes.

For me, this woman is my sister, Allison. Twelve years ago, she had

become the hopeless and helpless woman. She was filled with sadness

and she was very broken. She had chosen to relieve her pain

with prescription pills and alcohol. It became such that she could

only function when in an altered state. She would do whatever it took

to just feel “better” or “normal”. As her big sister, by ten years, I felt

that I should be able to “fix” her and “help” her. Little did I know at

the time, but that wasn’t my responsibility. She was living with me

and was using these mood-altering substances daily in order to cope.

68 | january 2022 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Allison moved away from my home in Maryland to Florida at the

age of 23 and her addiction worsened. It took a terrible car accident

and lots of encouragement from our Dad for her to finally realize that

she needed help. She did “fake it” for a year but when she finally decided

that she was ready, she never looked back.

While encouraging others who suffer from addiction, she always

says, “If I could just give you a small portion of the hope and joy

that I feel every day since becoming sober, you would want this for

yourself as well.”

I find myself incredibly fortunate to be able to raise money for

Wayside House. Our programs provide the necessary tools for women

to experience that same hope and joy that Allison does.

In the words of Amanda O., one of our alumni, “Wayside House is

more than treatment. It is a home. I grew up emotionally in that little

house. I was there for 9 months and they were the best 9 months

of my life. To have time to learn about yourself and take the time to

focus on yourself is such a blessing.”

I get to work for an organization that provides hope and changes

lives. What more could I ask for?

Mentor, Mensch and Messenger

of Goodness for Young People

C. Ron Allen doesn’t look back. The reporter, retired Navy vet and

mentor for children takes large steps each day to make Palm Beach

County a field of dreams for low economic children and families.

He does that by way of his KOP Mentoring Network that has

its arm around children from seven to 17. For the past 30

years C. Ron has been the lifeline and life boat for young

people who didn’t see an exalted future for themselves. Many come

from homes with no role models, little discipline and not much understanding

of how to succeed in the world.

That is why C. Ron swooped in to become a father figure, mentor

and life coach for over 30,000 children in Palm Beach County.

Though he gives credit to the success of his program to those who

walk beside him, it is C. Ron who has relentlessly given his heart and

soul to any child who needs him.

“I have a heart and a desire to help those less fortunate,” said the

award-winning reporter and media company owner.

You bet he does. Children that are part of the KOP Mentoring

program are immersed in programs for character building, gang

prevention, educational excellence, civic mindedness, and career

exploration.

The programs are all inclusive and expose students to aviation

careers, financial literacy, home economics, music, photography,

water sports, current events and more. They also have virtual community

student led meetings and conversations every Friday night

(on YouTube).

After 30 years C. Ron knows what children need and what helps

them thrive. “We teach our young people that knowledge liberates,

commands respect, builds self-esteem and gives them a positive attitude

about their life choices. We prepare them to thrive in school,

work, and civic life.”

Veronica Bowleg has seen this effort up close. Her grandson Antwan

(AJ) was in KOPS from the 4th to 10th grade at Village Academy

and Atlantic High School.

“AJ has learned so much about life and has become serious about

his future. He’s been on the Honor Roll in school because of C. Ron

and has learned about golf, horses, aviation, boating, and taken overnight

trips. It has educated him about life and given him experiences

I could never have offered him. C. Ron is awesome.”

The word awesome comes up a lot when inquiring about C. Ron.

But to this man of the people, awesome is not in his literary lexicon,

action is. When the children get good grades they get to go on boat

rides, an educational trip, or help shave his beard (an annual fete at

a local barbershop).

Though his efforts are Herculean now, the starting point in this

mentoring and educational based program were not rooted in love

from the beginning.

“I got tired of seeing so many kids in the police blotter and jail

when I went to the Palm Beach County Courthouse when I was a

reporter. I told the judge that we have to do something about these

kids. They were getting arrested for doing stupid things. If they had a

positive role model this could have been prevented.”

To add fuel to the fire of his calling, C. Ron was told by a law enforcement

officer that his job was not to rehabilitate children, but to

arrest them. That is when C. Ron started “Operation Save the Children.”

They brought in guest speakers, visited aviation facilities, took

educational trips, and had group mentoring sessions under the trees,

in Pompey Park and anywhere they could.

The realization that there were children in dire need of mentoring

and meaning became a messianic calling for C. Ron. One

of his closest associates, who marvelled at C. Ron’s dedication to

children, was Robert Dodd Jr. “We took the kids to crime prevention

in Black community conventions every year. We rented busses,

stayed in hotels, and expanded the program to include other

events for these children.”

Dodd also saw the fire in C. Ron’s quest to help youngsters. “I

watched C. Ron interact with children and listen to what they had to

say. He is a person who will open his heart to you even if he doesn’t

know you. He never turns his back on any child.”

That’s the reason C. Ron recently teamed up with Roots and Wings

to enhance their after-school program at Orchard View Elementary.

The program, called Star Makers, teaches 4th and 5th graders life lessons,

self-esteem building, and enrichment. “After the kids learn to

read we want them to dream that anything is possible. We want them

to know the world is bigger than their neighborhood, and they can

be whatever they want when they grow up,” said Roots and Wings

founder Ted Hoskinson.

Delray Beach Police Chief Javaro Sims has also had a front row seat

to the wonders of C. Ron. “He has been relentless in his efforts to affect

change and opportunities for youth in our community. He does it

all and doesn’t expect anything in return.”

But those around him took notice. He has received awards from

Men With Caring Hearts, The Jefferson Award from President Clinton,

the Bank of America Local Hero Award, Florida Governor’s Point

of Light Award, the JM Family African American Achievers Award,

Delray Beach Chamber’s Ken Ellingsworth Community Service

Award and others.

But it is not awards that keeps the meter running on fast forward

for C. Ron. It is the success and joy of his kids.

“I am a community servant who will do anything to make sure our

young people are prepared for life. It’s joyful when you see change in

their hearts and outlook on their futures. My mentoring programs

have become my ministry. Until God calls me home, I will continue

to prepare our youth for life after graduation in this global society.”

are also given to send KOPMN graduates off to college.

misc | ask the petxpert

BY Bill Piechocki and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM

My Pet Has a Sensitive Stomach.

What Should I Do?

Since we are a leader in the pet nutrition profession, most clients

begin their narrative with the statement “my pet has a

sensitive stomach so switching diets is not an option. Don’t

you have a secret potion that will help?” Whatever the health issue

is; in the decades of our consultative ventures, we have learned that

all health challenges have only two basic underlying causes. The

first is toxin exposure through our environment, cleaners, drugs,

pesticides, lawn chemicals, geo-engineering, food additives, processing

and preservatives plus many other sources. The second

cause is deficiency, essentially malnutrition.

In nature, healthy animals do not suffer from “sensitive stomachs.”

This is a phenomenon that is totally created by humans. Yes,

it’s true, we are creating this. Every toxin ourselves or our pets

ingest creates digestive destruction by killing the cells that create

and support the digestive process. If we kill the digestive absorption

cells, our pets do NOT get the nutrients that their body needs.

It also confuses the digestive tract and the endocrine system to create

novel and unnatural digestive enzymes and other biochemical

products to digest and absorb more nutrients. This creates gastric

dysfunction, hence sensitive stomachs.

Now that we know the probable causes of these gastric issues,

we can develop a program to eliminate these issues over time. I

need to warn you that none of these “fixes” are immediate. You

need to realize that we are replacing poisoned and damaged intestinal

cells with the bio-bacteria that the digestive tract requires for

normal factuality.

Now we will discuss the source of the causes. If you are feeding

a highly processed artificial ingredient “pet food,” this is not a real

whole food and nutritionally bio-available entrée. You may note

that I referenced the term entrée. There is no food on Earth that

will function as “complete and balanced” with the living body being

dynamic. The body of every creature is always dynamic, meaning

it is always changing on the type of nutrients the body needs

AT THAT TIME! This will sometimes manifest itself as being very

enthused one day of a single meal and then rejecting it upon the

next meal.

Our goal is to not irritate the digestive tract with all kinds of inappropriate

foods, drugs and toxins that exist in an unnatural diet

thus creating an inflammatory response that results in a plethora

of digestive body defenses. Diarrhea, mucus, and bloody stool are

all a part of the healing process that pets’ bodies must endure temporarily.

It is essentially housekeeping, not sickness.

Humans have created the “sensitive stomach” issue by feeding

unnatural diets that contain a plethora of ingredients that our pets

cannot digest and that destroys the natural digestive flora. Switching

from one inappropriate food to another will again create an issue

in the future. In order to rectify this condition, we will have

to stop insulting the body with irritants and support the healing

with species appropriate, all natural, fresh food dietary entrees, detoxifying

botanical and herbal foods and other supportive nutrition

such as bone broth and raw dairy. Then we will see the magnificent

changes that the body will create naturally within itself.
