student whose life changes after she
meets a tormented billionaire.
The event is billed as “A Celebration

Homes may rise on county’s prime farmland
Beach, where some of the
state’s warmest year-round
temperatures make the region ideal for growing vegetables.
To try to strike a balance
between farming and encroaching development,
the county requires developers building in the Agricultural Reserve to set
aside the equivalent of 60
percent of properties for
agricultural uses, conservation or water storage.
A l s o, P a l m B e a c h
County voters in 1999 approved spending $100 million that was used to buy
about 2,400 acres in the reserve that now gets leased
out for agriculture.
Despite those efforts,
environmentalists and
other advocates for pro-
tecting open spaces say
county officials have been
too flexible with Agricultural Reserve rules through
the years, allowing a hospital, schools and other types
of development to spread
into the farming region.
Thomas Produce farms
thousands of acres of land
in Florida, but its 37 acres
that house the packing
plant and some cropland
west of Boca Raton is the
company’s only property
owned in the Agricultural
Reserve, according to development consultant Ken
Tuma, who represents
Thomas Produce.
The packing house prepares produce for shipping, but now has a Publixanchored shopping center
across the street .
WHO IS MCCI?
And nearby, neighborhoods cover much of the
former farmland that once
made Thomas Produce’s
packing house so strategically located. Thomas Produce plans to relocate its
p a c k i n g p l a n t t o Fo r t
Pierce, according to Tuma.
In its place, Thomas
Produce proposes that the
county allow the new
homes along with 238,500
square feet of building
space for shops and other
commercial development.
Nearby residents, as
well as advocates for preserving land for agriculture, have opposed changing building rules to allow
more homes on the Thomas Produce property.
“We have such a limited
amount of [agricultural]
land, why don’t we keep it
ag-related?” asked Roni
Freedman, of the group
Save The Ag Reserve. If
not, she said, “every other
developer is going to say,
’You did it for them.’ ”
Delaying the commission vote is intended to provide more time to try to address concerns, Tuma said.
The development proposal for the Thomas Produce property comes as the
County Commission is already considering easing
building limits throughout
the Agricultural Reserve.
Commissioners in
March are expected to
weigh in on a proposal to
allow more privately
owned farmland to be converted to neighborhoods
and shopping centers.

If allowed, the development proposal “would circumvent” efforts to limit
building in the Agricultural
Reserve, according to a
county report to commissioners recommending
against the changes.
In response to concerns
from the county and nearby residents, Thomas Produce representatives have
asked to delay a County

the property an exception

The headline on page 18 (West Boca Forum, Jan.

Donna Klein Jewish Academy’s new head of
school.
In the story, “’Veil’ explores exile and love,” (West
Boca Forum, page 5, Jan. 28, 2015), Israel-iborn
artist Izhar Patkin’s glass table sculpture should
have been described as being “inspired by a book
that angered Yitzhak Rabin at the time, and
predicted the Messiah would arrive on a lowly

more repulsive than
Hurricane

nobody is doing much
about it: Mosquito Season.
Some Broward communities have campaigns and
programs, and one — is it
Plantation? Fort Lauderdale? Pembroke Pines?
Can’t remember, and they
don’t seem to do it every
year — has a lumbering airplane that flies through the
streets, about 200 feet up,
spewing insecticide onto
the finish of our cars.
Don’t worry about that,
because we haven’t seen
any evidence of it this early
in the year.
What’s most puzzling is
that 21st century science
has pretty much wiped out
polio and smallpox. What
the heck, those required
considerably more expertise and research and dollars than eradicating mosquitoes. But get this: some
scientists say we need mosquitoes because they’re a
principal food source for
some birds and whatever.
There are some 3,500 species of mosquitoes. Why
can’t they just nail the ones
that bite us and cause malaria? The hummingbirds
still can enjoy a tasty skeeter and we can enjoy a
scratch-free rainy season.

is quoted as saying, “Mosquitoes are delectable
things to eat, and they’re

It wasn’t that long ago
that instead of some spray
cans sitting unadvertised at
Publix or Winn-Dixie, mosquitoes were celebrities at
this time of year. A major
campaign, year after year,
showed an attractive but
frantic woman yelling,
“Quick, Henry, the Flit!”
Know who the artist was
who illustrated that campaign? Theodore Geisel,
b e t t e r k n o w n a s “ D r.
Seuss.” It made sense, because Dr. Seuss was always
after evil creatures such as
grinches and on-beyondzebras. I said it wasn’t that
long ago, but maybe it was.
The campaign ran from
1928 to 1945, and Flit itself
was a competitive insecticide well into the 1950s,
when a number of insecticides whose power
stemmed from DDT disappeared from the marketplace.

It’s because I feel reasonably safe predicting that
even as you read these
words, somebody in your
neighborhood will end up
at Broward Health or Holy
Cross or Joe DiMaggio
Hospital, with malaria or
yellow fever or dengue. On
a one-to-one basis, these
are a lot more deadly than a
hurricane. And they account for a great many
more human problems. For
example, dengue fever averages 50 to 100 million
cases every year ... including the one from your
neighborhood.
With DDT long gone,
the current king of insecticides is DEET. Sometimes,
though, people report results from DEET that parallel saving your house from
a hurricane by blowing it
up with dynamite. It’s
strong enough to melt nail
polish, so imagine what it
can do to exposed skin.
Ah well, it’s up to each
one of us to leave mosquitoes to birds and fish. And
in keeping with our sporting instincts, I’ll bet that
more people go to bed tonight without the benefit of
mosquito netting and citronella candles than those
who do. After all, the season isn’t in full swing yet.

MICHELLE STALLONE
Founder and organizer of Pinkball
Your sixth annual Pinkball: Striking Out
Breast Cancer event is set for 10 a.m. March
28 on the baseball fields at Burt Aaronson
South County Regional Park. Are you doing
anything different this year?
Softball for adults and children and kickball
games started last year. Mostly kids play, but we
get a couple of family teams and adult teams,
too. Pinkball is sponsored by West Boca Youth
Baseball, and we also need sponsors for bleachers, home plate and the fields, among other
things.
Why do you want people to know?
We want to make sure everyone who wants to
play can play, and there’s early bird signup
through March 1 for $30 for adults and $20 for
children at bocapinkball.com/. After that it’s $40
for adults and $30 for children. There’s no fee to
come, only to play. Anyone can come out and
have fun; there are so many things to do.
Who signs up for this? Is it existing teams
or people who form teams just for this event,
like a walk?
It’s both. I have people returning who come
with the same group every year or people can
register on the website bocapinkball.com and
we’ll put them on a team if they don’t have one.
We really need sponsors, too.
Can you describe the event?
We’re on four baseball fields in the park off
Yamato Road. At 10 a.m., players start registering. There’s an opening ceremony and a breast
cancer survivor throws out the first pitch. The
games begin at11a.m.
How many people play?
Last year we had 300.
Then what happens?
Games continue until 6 p.m. All day long we
have bounce houses, games, food, raffle prizes, a
deejay, the pink fire truck from Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue, the Mammovan and the
pink squad car from Palm Beach County Sheriff ’s Office. We have pink soft balls and pink
kickballs, and we turn the entire park pink.
Are there winners?
In the middle of the day we have a homerun
derby, which people love and they do get trophies for that. Anyone who signs up for that get
first-, second- and third-place trophies.
How much did you raise last year?
We raised $18,000 for the Go Pink Challenge.
Our goal would be to raise at least $20,000 this
year. The money raised goes into the Pink Ball
Fund through the Go Pink Challenge for Boca
Raton Regional Hospital patients who need
breast imaging but do not have health insurance.
What else do you want people to know
about you?
I’m a mammography technologist and patient
care coordinator at the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute at Boca Raton
Regional Hospital. My husband Bobby owns
Stallone’s Italian Kitchen in West Boca. Our children are Robert and Giannamarie.
OPINIONS & VIEWS
EDUCATION COLUMNIST
stories about young children suffering terribly
from the strain, which may
be good news for those in
the ulcer-treating business, but not for kids or
their parents. A truly enlightened education world
would use the results as indicators for next year
about what areas to work
on and improve. The tests,
therefore, don’t have to be
judge, jury and executioner. Instead, they could
be signposts, pointing to
academic weaknesses to
be worked on.
Did you know that Florida will be leasing its test
from Utah for a price tag of
$5 million a year? Education Commissioner Pam
Stewart declared that this
new test is the “best choice
for Florida students.” This
reminds me of a local pri-
vate prep school (whose
name I ought not mention)
that conducted a “national
search” for its next principal a few years ago. Then,
after an expensive process, the chosen principal
turned out to be totally unfit, and she had to be let go
after only one year of her
three-year contract, requiring the school to pay
off the remaining two
years. After that disaster,
the school chose to promote a respected educator
from its own staff, and the
school has benefited. Why
not do the same with this
test?
Instead of leasing tests
from Utah at such a high
price tag, why not have respected Florida educators
gather to write them? Assemble teachers from every county in the state,
show them the information in each curriculum,
and they write tests based
on that content, like teachers have always done.
What a concept! Focus on
Florida. Isn’t that what
Gov. Scott and his Republican legislature did?
They’ve taken the federal
Common Core standards,
agreed to by 20 states, and
renamed it the Florida
Standards Assessment.
Why? Because we hate
“federal intervention,” as
Gov. Scott put it. Because
Tallahassee has to say no
to anything coming from
Washington while a democratic president resides
there. Billions for highspeed train travel? No! Billions for Medicare for our
poor? No! So, where we
might use the tests already
agreed on by those 20
states at no cost, better to
spend $5 million (a year)
leasing Utah’s. Where we
might show respect for our
public school teachers by
having a select group of
them design appropriate
homegrown tests for their
(our) students, we instead
take a road trip to Utah to
rent theirs.
And none of this addresses a basic failing in
Common Core: the value
of creativity. For example,
high school students will
be shown spelling and
grammar errors in a passage and then make corrections. Fine. Our students should be literate.
But for them to make
meaningful contributions
to society, they’ll need to
be creative. And I don’t see
us importing any creativity
from Utah.

One of our first and most noticeable sign of aging is that sagging skin on

Fortunately there is a new FDA-CLEARED NON-INVASIVE facial service that can
take up to 10 years off your looks, without surgery of downtime. This is good
news for those who do not want to go under the knife.
This non-invasive treatment is accomplished in one treatment, in about one hour,
at a small fraction of the cost of a traditional face lift. This unique procedure is
done without incisions and will lift and tighten up the face, neck and eyebrows.
The treatment uses ultrasound, which is very safe, affordable and has provided
results that can rival a surgical procedure. The ultrasound is able to lift the skin in
the face, neck, chin, eyebrows and sagging jowls that are inevitable with age.
At a fraction of the cost of a traditional face lift.
Many Hollywood stars have opted for “Ultherapy” due
to its effectiveness and the natural appearance it leaves.

HIGHER THOUGHTS
Answered prayers
CROSS POINTS
many people willingly accept God’s “no” to their
earnest petitions. They
need clarification, and
when they cannot get it,
they walk away from
God. But what good is
your faith, if you can see
and understand everything? What purpose
would God serve in your
life if you could peek into
tomorrow and get a
glimpse of your outcome?
Hannah had no idea
what to expect when she
prayed to God for a son,
but she knew God would
be listening. She focused
most of her energy on
calling out to God. Her
prayer was honest and
emotional, and God was
moved by it. That same
day after she left the temple, she went home with
her husband. God remembered her, and she
conceived a son. When
the time came, she gave
birth and named the
child, Samuel, which
means “asked of God” (1
Samuel 1:20).
Daniel prayed and
fasted for three weeks
when he learned about a
great war that was coming. An angel appeared to
Daniel in a vision to inform him that his prayers
had been heard and the
reason for the delay was
because of some opposing forces (Daniel
10:12-13).
Elijah prayed for rain
and sent his servant to
check the forecast. Each
time his servant went and
looked toward the sea,
the skies remained unchanged. Finally, on the
seventh trip, the skies
turned black and clouds
began to form. Soon after,
there was a huge rainstorm (1 Kings 18:41-45).
These stories reveal
that God answers the
prayers of the righteous,
especially when their desires correlate with His
will. Sometimes, He says
“yes” right away, sometimes He keeps us waiting, and sometimes He
gives us more than we expect. Even when He says
“no,” it always works out
for our good. In the final
analysis, when we focus
all of our attention on
God, as opposed to our
worries, fears and selfish
needs, we receive the answers we need in ways
we could never imagine.

theless pray frequently
asking God to intervene
in the lives of others with
grace, healing, strength,
etc.? — A., via cyberspace
A . Yo ur question is
about the efficacy and
theological integrity of
petitionary prayers. If
we’re free to choose our
way in the world, how
can we ask God to intercede on our behalf?
There really is no conflict between free will and
asking for God’s help.
Through such prayers,
we’re not asking God to
do something for us
while we sit back and
watch God work for us.
What we’re really doing
is asking God to help our
freely chosen actions
have the effect we intend.
We act freely, but we
can’t be certain how our
actions will turn out. So
we pray to God. When we
pray for a sick friend or
relative, or for ourselves,
we’re not asking God to
alter the course of disease. We’re really praying
for strength and courage
to accept whatever happens and move forward
with hope.
When we pray for
peace, we’re not asking
God to defeat the evildoers without our help
but to give our leaders the
courage to lead us to victory. I used to pray to God
before every sermon I
preached. I would pray,
“God, help me to speak
your words truly.” I chose
the words, but I could not
choose how they would
be heard. That prayer
comforted me and still
does.

The Jewish Star of David is not a ritual object,

“Our Father,” “Hail Mary”

for Catholics to wear Rosary beads as jewelry,
and if they’re worn at all,
it should be in a modest

The popularity of Madonna, who’s worn Rosaries as decorations for

Religious symbols are

what the outcome will be
(contrary to what we believe) and has a much better plan, His answers are
always for our best.

It’s easy to stand apart when your address lies within the acclaimed
Deer Creek community. Here, manicured grounds give way to
meandering waterways and the emerald greens of the adjacent Deer
Creek Country Club. Of course, the service and care are exceptional,
whether it’s chauffeured transportation to cultural outings, shopping
and casinos, or inspired chefs unveiling their signature dishes. Social,
exercise and wellness programs abound, and enduring friendships
come easy. Come discover a rich and fulfilling senior lifestyle that
truly stands alone!
You deserve a life like this!
• Daily chef-prepared meals
• Distinctive restaurant-style
dining
• Happy hour with live
entertainment
• Abundant social opportunities
• Exercise and wellness programs
• Local transportation
• Maintenance-free living
• Monthly rentals (no buy-in)

No need to sanitize

ear Dr. Roach: Our

that is well-attended. Management provided spray
bottles containing water

oxide. We are encouraged
to spray and wipe down
each machine after use. Is
this sanitation effort really
necessary to maintain
good health? -- G.D.
I would consider the
risks of using the product
against the risks of not using the product. Hydroxyl
amine oxides are common
detergents used in many
cleaning products. Although they are classified
as skin irritants, at low concentration, such as from a
spray bottle, most people
do not have a skin reaction
to them. They are effective
at killing most germs.

spray detergent for the end
of the day.
Dear Dr. Roach: I am
generally healthy, but my
one problem is my tongue.
I have a condition called
geographic tongue, and it

as uncommon as you
might think, it’s a complete
mystery as to why it occurs. The lesions on the
tongue can look like ulcers,
and they come and go over
hours or even minutes.
Many people have exacerbations and remissions of
the lesions, but they usually are asymptomatic, or
may have some discomfort
or burning sensation.
Geographic tongue can
be misdiagnosed as a fungal infection, which can
lead to ineffective and unnecessary treatment. Most
people need nothing more
than reassurance that it is
both common and benign.

ALL CALORIES NOT EQUAL
Increasingly, science
shows that a calorie from
a nutrient-loaded avocado
is not the same as a calorie from a nutrient-poor,
sugary muffin. Indeed,
nutrient-rich items can be
both very low and, surprisingly, higher in calories.
Almonds, for example;
while a mere ounce of the
nuts delivers about 164
calories, it possesses a
range of vitamins, minerals and healthy fats that
make them a nutrient-rich
food, despite the calories
they contain.
The Pap Corps has donated over
$50 million to support research on
ALL types of cancer in men,
women and children.

NUTRIENT-RICH BONUS
A nutrient-rich eating
style gives you a concentrated amount of the valuable vitamins, minerals,
fiber, essential fatty acids
and antioxidants needed
for healthy aging.
A University of Florida
study discovered that people who consumed more
plant-based foods and, in
turn, higher amounts of
nutrients, such as phytochemicals and minerals,
maintained healthier
body weights and experienced less internal inflammation linked to
chronic diseases than
people with lower intakes
of nutrient-dense foods,
even though both groups
took in about the same
number of daily calories.
Consider, too, that people who spend a greater
amount of time on home
food preparation consume a diet consisting of
higher quality calories, reports a 2014 study in the
American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
ars,” says Hever. Many
highly processed, packaged foods marketed as
“low-calorie” or “low-fat,”
such as baked potato
chips or white bread, provide little in the way of vital nutrients in their calorie load.
For example, refined
white rice contains fewer
calories cup for cup than
brown rice (205 vs. 216,
respectively), but you’d
have to consume about
four times as much white
rice just to get the same
amount of magnesium
found in the brown rice, a
mineral linked to lower
heart disease risk.
Diets too heavy in
foods that provide mainly
empty calories, such as
soda and pastries, are the
reason people can be
overweight yet still nutrient-malnourished.
WWW.SUNSENTINEL.COM/WESTBOCA
NUTRIENT-RICH SHOPPING
Hever says foods from
nature, such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, wholegrains, nuts and seeds are
often the most nutrientdense edibles in the grocery store. In particular,
she extols brightly colored vegetables like red
bell peppers and dark,
leafy greens for giving
you a significant nutrient
and antioxidant windfall
for little caloric cost.
A University of Washington study found that
among whole vegetables
it was potatoes (both
sweet and white), carrots
A study found people who consumed more plant-based foods
and, in turn, higher amounts of nutrients, maintained healthier body
weights than people with lower intakes of nutrient-dense foods.
WBF
When you turn over a
packaged product in the
grocery store to read the
nutritional breakdown,
it’s tempting to look at the
calories first. We’ve been
bombarded for years with
messages that calories
count most when it comes
to the battle of the bulge.
Yet, nutrition experts are
increasingly using the
terms “nutrient density”
and “nutrient-rich” to describe the foods--fruits,
vegetables, whole grains,
lean proteins--we should
be eating more of, with
less focus on their calories.
What does nutrientrich mean? Nutrient-density equals nutrients per
calorie, says Julieanna
Hever, M.S., R.D., C.P.T.,
author of “The Vegiterranean Diet.”
“Thus, the more nutrients packed into a food
calorie, the more beneficial it is toward making
every calorie count most
efficiently,” Hever notes.
In addition, nutrientdense foods are items that
have not been diluted by
the addition of calories
from added solid fats or
added sugars, according
t o T h e 2 010 D i e t a r y
Guidelines for Americans.

Sand Turtles volleyball class is headed to Boca Raton
The Turtles are coming
to Palm Beach County.
The Sand Turtles Volleyball program, currently
in Coral Springs and
Coconut Creek, has been
teachin g ch ildr en and
adults how to play sand
volleyball for more than
five years and now they
are headed to Boca Raton.
“A f t e r [ t h e U n i t e d
States’] success in the recent Olympics, we have
seen a huge growth in the
interest of our sport,”
Mark Lewkowicz, owner
of Sand Turtles Volleyball,
said.
“The sand is the best
surface you can play on.”
The program name
comes from Lewkowicz’s
daughter, Julia, who loves
turtles. According to him,
she recently signed with
Florida Atlantic University to play sand volleyball.
“Her nickname is Turtle or Tortuga, so I named
my team Sand Turtles,”
Lewkowicz said.
Lewkowicz said between the Coral Springs
and Coconut Creek locations, he has about 85
players ranging from 8
years old to adult. He is
hoping for 15 to 20 players
in Boca Raton to start.
“ We t e a c h t h e b a s i c

and serving and we do
some physical things like
games,” Lewkowicz said.
“We do things to get the

a big advocate of getting
them off the couch and
out from behind the computers and getting [them]
up and running.”
The adults will also
learn beginning moves,
according to Lewkowicz.
The head coach in Boca
Raton will be Alexandra
Scheiber, who is the girls’
junior varsity coach at Zion Lutheran in Deerfield
Beach and also a coach at
UPPS Performance Volleyball based in Deerfield.
Lewkowicz started the
program in Coral Springs
six years ago when
Broward County dropped
middle school volleyball
because of budget cuts.
The middle school program is back this year.
“I think the most gratifying part is seeing kids or
people who knew absolutely nothing become a
decent player,” Lewkowicz said.
“They can go out and
play in any pick-up game
and not embarrass themselves…”
Local residents who
want to learn to play sand
volleyball can start with a
free clinic on Tuesday,
Feb. 17 from 6:45 to 8 p.m.
at Meadows Park, 1300
Northwest Eighth Street,
in Boca Raton.
The class space is limited to the first 28 people
due to court size.
After the free clinic,
training will start Thursday, Feb. 19 and continue
through Tuesday, Mar. 31.
Classes are twice a week
on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:45 to 8 p.m.
The cost is $135 per person.

challenge, their system will be more primed to access a
state of calm or hit a pause button instead of acting habitually when a stressful situation does occur.
The Take-Away
Individuals can be mindful of anything – seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, touching. They can be mindful of
thinking, mindful of washing the dishes, mindful in conversation. It’s even possible, with practice, that your
middle-schooler will put his cell phone down for a minute and be mindful in a conversation with you.
Still it’s a mistake to assume mindfulness creates
some sort of perfect state where we always do one thing
at a time and are always calm when multiple things are
happening. “It’s less about aiming for perfection as a
parent or as a human being and more about aiming for a
shift in our relationship to the varying experiences of
chaos and surprise and challenge in our lives,” Cowan
said.
How to get kids to practice mindfulness
• Model it yourself
• Never force the idea upon them
• Aim for 1-5 minutes each day
How to breathe mindfully
Maintain your usual breathing pattern
Focus on the air you inhale and the air you exhale.
Count your breaths in pairs: Inhale, exhale, one. Inhale, exhale, two, and so on for 5 counts. If your mind
wanders, note what you were thinking about and return
to counting your breaths.
WEST BOCA FORUM
breathing. For families with older kids, pick a mealtime
when everyone is present and try observing a minute a
silence or taking a few mindful breaths before beginning
to eat. “Establish really simple, really short routines that
can become integrated but don’t have to feel like you’re
taking time away from something else that needs to be
done,” Cowan says.
The Benefits
The idea of practicing mindfulness to combat today’s
stresses and increase focus can be attributed to Jon Kabat-Zinn, a MIT-educated scientist. He developed a curriculum called Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
(MBSR) in 1979 and about 1,000 certified MSBR instructors teach mindfulness techniques across the U.S. and in
more than 30 countries.
Naturally, neuroscientists have followed close behind
to determine if any of it really works. Studies have
shown practicing mindfulness does affect the nervous
system in a positive way. Cowan has observed that if
there’s a tendency in a child toward worry, anxiety or
overexcitement, a regular short length of mindfulness
practice can start to shift his or her ability to handle
those experiences. “Mindfulness is not just about being
calm. Mindfulness is about learning to navigate the entire spectrum of our emotional experience,” she says.
As a parent, it’s a good idea to establish some familiarity with mindfulness and moments of calm in your
children, because trying to evoke this state in moments
of exasperation or stress is often futile. If you encourage
them to practice mindfulness when there’s no overt
WWW.SUNSENTINEL.COM/WESTBOCA
t’s no secret that kids’ attention spans are notoriously
short. Remind a middle schooler to take his lunch,
and chances are he’ll forget in the time it takes to
walk across the kitchen -- with the odds increasing tenfold if he’s got a cell phone in hand. Try to converse with
a younger child about his school day, and you’ll likely be
competing with a video game or some other distracting
uplink on a digital tablet.
Technology has made it easier than ever to fracture
attention into smaller and smaller bits. In our multi-tasking society, it’s become de rigueur to always be thinking
or doing more than one thing at a time. This may up our
rate of accomplishment, but at the same time, it’s driving
stress levels higher and robbing us of the ability to enjoy
life in the present moment. It could be argued that kids
are even more susceptible to the pitfalls of technology,
having never lived in a world without cell phones and
PCs.
Many adults have begun to cope with the ramped-up
stresses of today’s world by turning to a concept known
as mindfulness. If distraction is the devil of our age, then
mindfulness may be its panacea. Introducing the idea to
children at a young age might not be a bad idea, either.
Mindfulness is intended to help practitioners calm a
busy mind, live in the moment, be less affected by things
that have happened in the past or will happen in the future. It’s rooted in Eastern philosophy, specifically Buddhism. Its spiritual aspect might be appealing to some,
and a turn-off for others, so that’s why mindfulness advocates like to promote a commonsense approach. If
you think of attention as a muscle, and you want to
strengthen that muscle, it makes sense to exercise it.
The Method
Starting at a young age, parents can encourage children to practice mindfulness in a number of ways. First
and foremost, you have to model the behavior yourself.
“If you want there to be mindfulness in your home, it has
to start with you,” says Megan Cowan, co-founder and
director of Mindful Schools, a San Francisco Bay Areabased program that seeks to integrate the practice of
mindfulness into education.
Begin by setting aside a period of time each day to be
still and sit in silence. Yes, it’s akin to meditation, and as
an adult you may be able to lengthen the time devoted to
this practice each day. With kids, however, aim for 1 to 5
minutes a day, and only if the child wants to do it. In
other words, it’s OK to suggest that your children join
you in your mindfulness practice, but don’t force the issue. “Don’t let mindfulness become another task, another burden, because then they’ll develop a relationship of
resistance to it,” Cowan says. If you sense reluctance,
back off and wait several months before introducing the
idea again.
Consistency is also key. You’ll have more success establishing a mindfulness practice by committing to the
same place, same time, and same length each day. With
younger kids, try folding it into the bedtime routine.
During this natural winding down phase of story time
and tucking into bed, include a minute of mindful

Museum outdoor show
at Mizner this weekend
Atsuko Okamoto won the graphics
and drawing first-place blue ribbon at
the Beaux Arts Festival of Art at the University of Miami a few weeks ago.
Now the Boynton Beach geometric
abstract painter is bringing her work for
the third time as one of 230 artists in the
29th annual Boca Raton Museum of Art
Outdoor Juried Art Festival on Saturday
and Sunday in Mizner Park, 327 Plaza
Real.
“She likes to use cool shapes and hot
colors,” her husband and business partner Michael Shatz said in an interview
with his wife, born in Yokohama, Japan.
“The compositions are sharply focused
and the bright vivid colors create a visual
magnet to explore what she calls ‘the
architecture of the imagination.’”
The artists work in jewelry, art glass,
fiber art, painting, sculpture, ceramics,
pottery, wood, mixed media, photography and crafts, said Inga Ford, the museum’s associate director of Innovations &
Communications. This will be her fifth
show.
“Their work is from Belgium, Hawaii,
Canada and almost every state and 25
and 30 percent are Florida artists,” she
said. “Some 1,000 to 1,200 applied.”
Admission is free.
Artists’ tents will occupy the amphitheater and be set up around Mizner
Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Museum staff visible in red shirts at
information booths throughout the venue will have maps of the show, she said.
Anyone who donates at least $5 to the
museum Art School’s Scholarship Fund
will receive complimentary admission to
the museum, the pink building next to
the amphitheater on the north end of
Mizner Park.
Walter O’Neill, director of the Boca
Raton Museum Art School, will judge
this year’s show with Allan Pierce, a photographer and instructor and a member
of the museum’s Artists’ Guild with fellow guild member Ralph Papa The artist
selected as Best in Show will receive
$3,000 and nine Merit Awards of $1,000
each will be presented.
With a blue ribbon at another prestigious Florida show to her credit this year,
Okamato and her husband are looking
forward to the museum show.
“We’re able to talk to our customers

nicely, and they don’t always buy something the first time,” Shatz said. “People
always want to see something new.”
Logistically, all four of Mizner Park’s
free garages will be open for parking,
and only the street that runs through the
park in front of the amphitheater will be
closed during the festival, Ford said.

and for afternoon activities, from noon to 12:30
p.m., at the Levis JCC Sandler Center, 21050 95th

serve as the headquarters.
The Sandler Center is
on the campus of the Jewish Federation of South

I
n the immortal words of Troop Beverly Hills, “It’s cookie time!”
Ahh yes, Girl Scout Cookie season
is upon us. From Jan. 22 to Feb. 15, more
than 7,500 Girl Scouts will be selling
their delicious cookies outside of Publix
stores, in local neighborhoods and at
other special locations.
The usual suspects are back this year:
Thin Mints, Trefoils, Samoas, Tagalongs,
Savannah Smiles and Do-Si-Dos.
However, there are some new, tempting additions to the bunch, including
Rah Rah Raisins and the gluten-free Toffee-Tastic cookies.
And that’s not the only innovation the
Girl Scouts have made for 2015. This
year, the organization has gone digital to
make sales safer for the girls and to
reach more customers. The Digital
Cookie program will allow Girl Scouts to
take digital credit card orders and ship
cookies directly to customers.
We recently had the good fortune of
receiving a box of every Girl Scout Cookie flavor here in the newsroom. I was
particularly interested in sampling the
new gluten-free Toffee-Tastic, as I have
developed an affinity for gluten-free
baked goods.
The cookie was buttery, crispy and not
overly sweet. I liked it, especially the little toffee bits throughout, but I wasn’t in
love.
While I never thought anything could
come between me and my passion for
Thin Mints, I have to admit that I went
bananas over the new Rah Rah Raisin.
Packed with two of my favorite foods
– raisins and Greek yogurt – these plump
little pals are quite tasty and induce less
guilt than most of the other delicious options.
All of the recipes have impressively
taken on new health standards. Thin
Mints are now vegan, and no high-fructose corn syrup is used in any of the
cookies.
Now that’s something we can all bite
into.

IMMIGRATION
STEM grads’ rules may change
Q
I am an F-1 international student
working here with Optional
Practical Training (OPT) employment authorization. Will President
Barack Obama do anything to help
people like me? I got an OPT extension
under the special rule for science, technology, engineering and
math (STEM) graduates.
My OPT expires in July.
M y c o m p a n y d o e s n’ t
sponsor employees for
H -1B p r o f e s s i o n a l worker visas. — Nebiyou Mandefro, Arlington, Va.
A. President Obama
plans changes in practical-training
rules for STEM graduates, but has not
given specifics. My guess is that he will
allow STEM graduates to stay in the
United States longer than under current rules. He may also expand the
types of degrees that will qualify graduating students for the extended benefits.
F-1 students now qualify for at least
one year of OPT for each degree
earned. The law calls this “optional”
because students have the option of using their practical training while still in
school. Individuals with a bachelor’s
degree or higher in a STEM subject,
whose employer participates in the
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
Services’ E-Verify employment-verification program qualify for up to 29
months of OPT employment.
The OPT extension for STEM graduates provides time for employers to petition professional workers for H-1B
status. I expect the Obama administration to announce an extension and expansion of the STEM OPT program
early this year.
Meanwhile, you may want to look
for an employer willing to sponsor you
for H-1B status. Even with an extension, your OPT will eventually end.
Q. Can someone with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
travel to Puerto Rico and safely return
to the United States? — Name Withheld, Brooklyn, N.Y.
A. Yes. Those benefiting from
President Obama’s programs for
undocumented immigrants, granting them the right to stay and work
here, can travel to Puerto Rico
without concern. For immigrationlaw purposes, Puerto Rico is considered part of the United States.
Q. I have two children born
here, but I came here in 2012. Do I
qualify for DAPA (Deferred Action for
Parental Accountability)? — Name
Withheld, Boston
A. No. Only undocumented immigrants here on Jan. 1, 2010, qualify for
DACA or DAPA . P resident Obama
chose those dates thinking that granting benefits to individuals here for five
years would be most politically acceptable.
Q. I petitioned for a green card for
my first husband. We divorced, and
now I want to remarry and file to get
papers for my new husband. Since this
is the second time for me, do any special rules apply? — Joselyn, via email
A. No special rules apply, but you
will want to take care to provide lots of
evidence that your new marriage is
bona fide, or “real.” Nothing prevents
you from petitioning for two husbands,
or more, for that matter.
