JUPITER INLET VILLAGE: We are in firm agreement
with the Town of Jupiter’s concept of the Jupiter Inlet Village
along A1A, from U. S. Highway One eastward. But, Save
Suni Sands! There has been a movement to redevelop the Suni
Sands property for additional business. We understand a group
of 75 people invited to a reception at Jupiter Beach Resort
appeared to review draft ideas and provide feedback to the
planning team - the Modica Group and Cotleur & Hearing.
There were conflicting beliefs expressed. Some wanted more
development, others wanted less - most wanted to save Suni
Sands. The idea of a “Funky Fishing Village” appeals to this
reporter. Let’s not destroy our historic heritage with giant
redevelopment. There is a plan to restore the Boat House at
Suni Sands. Great idea! As long as we continue in that vein
the Jupiter Inlet Village can be a tremendous advance to the
community and we’re all for a plan that would keep it simple,
yet inviting - not overwhelming. There is still much planning
to do. There will be more feedback opportunities. Yea, for
that! It should be something many would want to be involved
in. Keep up the good work, people, and let’s get something
we can be proud of that will be a sure destination.
In an article and an ad pertaining to Fred Astaire
S! Dance
Studio in the October issue of The Beacon, we
inadvertently misspelled the owners name. It is Sergh Aliev.
Also, the incorrect phone number for the studio was published. The
correct number is (561) 743-3216. Further, a female dance
instructor;s name was misspelled. It should be this: Mariya Khristina.
We regret and apologize for the errors.

Skeletal Muscle Pump and the Heart....
Are We Misinterpreting Our Leg Pain?
How many times have you felt heaviness in your legs and assumed it came
from the workout at the gym? How many times have you gotten out of bed
in the morning and your legs and feet hurt? Perhaps they hurt from the
weight of the sheets during the night as well. What about pain or tingling in
the feet or toes? Where is that coming from? My legs get so tired when I
climb the stairs. I need to exercise. Why are my legs so cold all the time and
why do I get cramps in my legs at night? Perhaps I need to wear socks.
Maybe I need the magnesium or calcium that my neighbor uses. My legs feel
numb when I sleep. I must be sleeping wrong. Gosh, my toe nails are so
thick. It must be hereditary. I ate too much salt in my food last night, that’s
why my legs are now swollen. Darn! I can’t even fit into my shoes! My legs
and feet are so pale. I must not be getting enough sun. My diet must be
working because my leg muscles seem to have less mass. Have you ever
wondered if something else is going on with your legs and feet? Are we
misinterpreting our leg pain? Maybe the doctor does not know what the
symptoms are presenting. That seems to be common these days. Let’s discuss
the Skeletal-Muscle Pump and take charge of our own health.
“I had several years of severe foot cramps and high blood pressure. I tried
exercising and several different brands of high blood pressure medications.
Everything I tried just did not seem to be working. Every time I went to the
doctor to solve the problem all he ever did was raise my dosage of blood
pressure medication. Finally I decided that there had to be an alternative to
this problem. I felt there had to be a more natural way to deal with this
dilemma. A couple of years ago I began to learn about massage therapy and
the inner workings of the body and how it responds to touch. I started going
to Fassage several times a week. At that time my blood pressure kept going
up and down anywhere from 140/80 to 160/80. After each session I began to
notice that my blood pressure began to level itself out. It started to be more
consistent and stayed at 120/80 to 125/80. I cannot believe how much I
learned in regards to the connections of the legs and circulation to high blood
pressure. I definitely believe that this is without a doubt an alternative to
taking medications which only brings on more physical problems. I feel that
this is definitely a more intelligent and safer way to deal with problems that
plague so many people. I am so grateful for learning about the health
benefits of massage.” Thank you, John M
Yes, massage surely has a place in the treatment of medical issues. It
should be on every ones calendar every month no matter what age. Call it
“My Own Health Plan for Prevention”.
The Skeletal Muscle Pump refers to certain muscles that create a spring
effect propelling the blood flow upward to the heart when we stand up. The
architectural choice of muscle fiber shape and muscle fiber properties chosen
by the Creator are brilliant in the design of the “calf muscles in the lower leg
“, the Gastrocnemius and the Soleus muscles. These muscles are the tools the
body will use to pump the venous blood upward. They play the role of
“compression stockings” wrapping around the entire upper and lower leg
much like a Christmas ribbon on a lamp post… ending at the Femoral artery
at the hip. The gear that starts the car moving is plantar flexion of the
heel…toes down when we walk. The Soleus muscle is the primary muscle
for plantar- flexion. It is called “The Second Heart”. Restriction of planter flexion at the ankle joint is the beginning of Venous Insufficiency or
Peripheral Artery Disease. Treating the Gastrocnemius muscle and Soleus
muscle is a must for anyone who has the symptoms mentioned at the
beginning of this article. To be continued in December issue….Tory Hawkes,

It’s November and the start of our Sailfish season
is upon us. We are looking forward to the arrival of
our world class target species. Word is their
southern migration is well under way and as of the
end of October the leading packs have reached
Jupiter. Look for baitfish schools along current rips
and color changes for signs of the presence of the
Sails. Fish live bait under kites or on the bump troll
around the bait schools. You can slow troll ballyhoo
(fished either naked or skirted) or small split tail
mullet. Keep watching for the sails or tails as the
Sailfish ball up the bait schools to feed. Be ready to
react as Sails are pack hunters so multiple hook ups
are common, always be prepared.
Fish with bait or sight fish with lures for Snook
and Tarpon along the beach as they feed on bait
there. The Snook and Tarpon bite continues to be
good in the inlets during the stronger tidal flows.
Fish the rivers and estuaries looking for depth
changes. The predators wait in the deeper water to
ambush bait fish as they cross back into the
presumed security of deeper water. At night fish
under lighted docks for Snook. Use live bait or soft
plastics at the edge of the lights. Remember the
regulations and use sound conservation practices in
all waters.
The reefs provide really good Gag Grouper fishing
in November. Drift live bait or drift sardines or
squid along the ledges or fish the wrecks where they
hang out. Try using high speed jigs for some
outstanding fun. There are also some Goliath
Grouper to be tangled with but remember they are
protected and must be released unharmed.
Lake O is always an option. The water is cooling
down so the fishing will be more consistent. If you
are going for the first time this season remember
you must have a fresh water license. Practice good
conservation wherever you fish.
Reports from the Northern Bahamas indicate the
Wahoo run has started early this year. Consistent
catches are being reported out of Grand Cay. This
bodes well for the rest of the Islands as the season
progresses. Watch the weather when you cross and
keep your boat seaworthy. It is a good idea to leave
a float plan with someone at home and check in
with them when you get there. Do the same on your
way home. Let’s all be safe out there and let’s all
practice good conservation.

What to wear in the Cryosauna is rather simple. Whole
Body Cryotherapy works best when the skin of the body core
(between your waist and neck) is exposed to the ultra-low
temperatures. That means you are pretty much in your
birthday suit.
For men, cotton underwear boxers or briefs.
For women, no underwire bras. You may wear a sports bra
with no metal on it, and your underwear.
We will provide you with: Socks, Boots, Gloves, A wraparound Velcro towel and Leg warmers
For your first session we want you to be comfortable and
just get used to the cold experience. Upon subsequent sessions
the women can move their towel down to their waste and men
can take the towel completely off.
On your first visit, we will take your blood pressure reading.
If you have Systolic of over 160, sorry your pressure is too
high to participate.
You will also fill out the client consent form. Please review
it in detail since it lists the significant contraindications for
using the Cryosauna. For convenience, a copy of this form is
available on our website: You may
read it at your leisure, fill it out, sign and initial where
requested, and bring it with you.
Your first Cryo session will be for 2 minutes at minus 220
Fahrenheit, followed by a brief rest of several minutes, and
then a second session of 1 to 2 minutes depending on your
desire. The amount of time for subsequent session will be
increased to 2 minutes 20 seconds, then 2 minutes 40 seconds,
culminating at 3 minutes.
Our pricing plan comes in SINGLE and DOUBLE Session
packages to give our clients a choice. The most popular plan
is the Double 20 Session Package. All our multi session plans
allow a couple to share the session plan if they so desire.
Ideally, the client should try to take 3 sessions per week
every other day for 3 weeks. Take a 2 week break to allow the
body to catch up to the therapy, followed by another 3 weeks
of every other day.
Once your session is completed, you get dressed. There is
no need for any showers since you are completely dry during
the procedure.
There are no restrictions on what you usually do following a
Cryo session. You may go home and relax or go back to the
gym or golf or bike. There are no collateral negative effects
following Cryotherapy.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call for
clarification or information.
Iceland Cryo is the first and only Whole Body Cryotherapy
office in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast. We are
located at the County Line Plaza in Tequesta. For additional
information, please email me at: [email protected] Or

“Turtle Bus” is named for the famous Loggerhead Turtles that
frequent our shores and often are the subject of injury, for
which the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach comes
to the turtle’s aid. Schott said, “We picked our name because
turtles come to Jupiter Beach every year to lay their eggs.
They usually return to the place where they were born. We
value the nature that surrounds us and celebrate the return of
the turtles.”
The bus is a 24 passenger vehicle which is available for
shuttling people around. The “Turtle Bus” will offer routes
between local restaurants and bars much of the time and is
available for private events. The bus features television
monitors ad a stereo system. The monitors will be used for fun
videos, theme nights, special events, karaoke and dozens of
other uses. There is also advertising on the bus, which helps
keep the bus affordable for the hop on, hop off evenings out on
the town.
The bus is also available for weddings parties, bar mitzvahs,
holiday or private parties, football games,girls night out,
concerts, shopping sprees and just about anythng else one
would need a shuttle bus for. Schott said, “My wife recently
hopped on the bus with a friend after shopping TJ Maxx. They
had a blast.”
Schott said local businesses understand what the company is

trying to do and how it can help them. “One of our
advertisers is an amazing bakery,” he said. “She does
wedding cakes, holiday pastries, cookies, breads, etc. She
occasionally sends samples on the bus and those nights are
especially fun.” David laughingly said, “We, of course,
sample the product.”
When the bus was first reserved during the month of
October, it was quite busy. “We had two big events and
everybody had a lot of fun. We were chartered for a rodeo
and there was a Halloween Pub Crawl.” Those on the bus
were in Halloween costume and had a lot of fun going from
bar to bar and contest to contest.
The “Turtle Bus” route includes two local luxury hotels.
“Guests from the hotels who don’t have a car can still get to
our area businesses,” David explained. “Those with a car may
still prefer to leave the car behind and go for a nice dinner,
followed by cocktails and leave the driving to use.”
The Turtle Bus passes through the Jupiter Beach Resort and
the Wyndham Grand Hotel at Harbourside Place, with stops
at popular local restaurants on Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday from 4 PM to 11 PM. The Turtle Bus is available
for private outings during the day (seven days a week), as
well as evening events from Friday through Monday.
Drivers for all the limousine service vehicles are licensed
and insured and all are friendly, courteous and professional.
The “Turtle Bus” is a natural expansion of David’s Limousine
Service which specializes in airport transportation, special
event transportation and private charters. The company has a
five vehicle fleet including a standard limousine. an SUV, a
Cadillac Sedan, a 14 passenger golf cart and the new 24

To spank or not to spank seems to be the question.
(Part One)
The recent incident involving an NFL player’s
interpretation of how to discipline his son has placed
corporal punishment front and center. News reports, panel
discussions, editorials and articles have become part of the
information overload the American public have become
used to when a celebrity athlete violates the law.
Leonard Pitts, editorializing in the Palm Beach
Post(“Spanking your kid isn’t necessarily child abuse”)
opines that he has no problem with spanking and was on
the receiving end of more than a few from a mother he
adores and describes as ,” the best mother in the history of
mothering.” I too was occasionally spanked and once was
chased down the hallway of our home with a broomstick
that never actually landed on my backside but scared the
freckles off my face. I always adored and respected the
deliverer of my consequences, my hero, my mom.
A Columbia University study, reported in the Palm Beach
Post, reveals that 57% of moms and 40% of dads have
spanked their three year olds and about the same
percentage spanked their five year olds.
Adrian Petersen, a member of the Minnesota Vikings
football team, decided that the best way to discipline his
four year old son was to hit him with a switch, which is a
thin tree branch used for whipping. He was indicted for
child abuse and suspended from his team.
In the same report, it is noted that only 31 of 50 states
have banned corporal punishment in public schools. Most
of those states are in the North and West. Is it a Southern
thing? Dr. Robert Epstein, a research psychologist thinks
The question people are pondering is not whether the
punishment was abusive or over the line, it was, but
whether any form of a physical consequence is acceptable
as a measure of disciplining your child.
But experts differ in their opinions. Some are totally
against any form of physical consequences; others condone
physical consequences as long a child is not injured
physically or emotionally.
Does a slap on the hand when a child nears an outdoor
grill or a hot stove constitute abuse? Should a swat on the
behind when a child runs into the street also be labeled as
abusive? Or are these acceptable consequences for a young
child who endangers himself? Answers vary.

Hi everyone!! We are happy to report that the season is
officially here! A special thank you to my dear friend Dr.
Michelle Leal. She has been filling in for me as I went through
a short medical leave. I am so grateful for her coverage and am
looking forward to getting back to my normal schedule. Also,
thank you so much to all of you who have given your amazing
love and support. How lucky am I? I have really missed seeing
everyone and am so happy to be back!
My story of thankfulness means even more this year. I have
met so many wonderful people at the Florida Cancer Center.
The stories of the patients there are so inspiring. The way that
the nurses administer chemo is so interesting....everyone is in
the same room as they are hooked up to IV's or as they receive
shots. It forms a most endearing support group as the same
people are present day after day. Those who are receiving
radiation are also having symptoms from that (usually fatigue
and some GI upset depending on the site of radiation). The
nurses/technicians that actually hook up the IV's are in the
positions of true they continually manage the
symptoms and challenges that arise from such difficult
treatment. The patients and their caregivers are on the journey
together...and wellness and hope abound. I felt honored to be
among the patients there and formed alliances that are simply
indescribable. On a lighter note, cancer is not for sissies!
A special thank you to beautiful "Mama Colette" who held
down the fort as I went in to my first treatments. We are so
lucky to have a local optician who truly cares for her patients.
She went full time until Kim S. was able to come back from
Utah. Thank you also to Kim S. for coming in and really
organizing the optical. Many patients were happily surprised to
see Kim S. was back! We are so happy to have such a
wonderful team to serve you here at Private Eyes. Please let
us know if there is anything we can do for you...we have
access to most brands if you are looking for something
I hope you are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday. Give
extra hugs to your elders. Love those little ones and teach
them to have grateful hearts. Enjoy. and we look forward to
seeing you soon. • October 2014
Transitional Move for AC
Company Proves Beneficial
This Longtime Air Conditioning Company Expands
Services. Adds Brands and Becomes More Efficient
TEQUESTA -- A move in May to a County Line Plaza
location has allowed Jupiter/Tequesta Air Conditioning to bring
all of its services under one roof, This 31-year old company not
only offers air conditioning and heating service and sales, but is
now involved in plumbing, electrical and pool heating.
Matthew Kuntz, vice president, has continued to uphold the
quality of service and dependability his father, Rick, instituted
more than three decades ago. Part of the tradition is in training
as Matthew explained to The Beacon: “Our team is dedicated to

“Comforting Solutions for In-home Care”®

Aging in Place
By 2030, the older population (65+) is projected to be
twice as large as their counterparts in the year 2000.
Their numbers are expected to grow by more than 100
percent from 35 to 72 million. The oldest among us, the
elderly aged 85 years and up, are forecast to grow from
the 5.5 million counted in 2010 to some 19 million by
2050. (
Forecasts and graphs capture and illustrate the
quantitative impact which, as we all realize, the aging
"Baby Boomers" will have upon our society. We can see
the differences with numerical predictability. We can be
sure that things will be different than they are today.
What isn't so clear is how things will be different, nor
how different they will be.
The quality of life considerations escape the reach of
statistics. It is one thing to age and to live longer than
ever before. It is quite another, however, to age well and
to enjoy the independence of staying active, the comforts
of familiar surroundings, the pleasures of social
Page 33
interaction and the well-being that goes along with
leading a life of quality.
Many feel that denying and avoiding the need of
assistance is the measure of independence and dignity
while aging. The truth, however, is just the other way
around. By preparing to 'age in place', by bringing in
help as needed and by taking preventive measures to
steer clear of the typical influences of less-than-optimal
nutrition and even the effects of dehydration, the senior
seeking a life of quality is well served with a little
encouragement and hands-on help along the way.
The greatest pleasures which our staff at Comfort
Keepers enjoy derive from seeing our clients thrive as
they get older. Once the stigma which many elderly
people associate with seeking help is left behind, the
support system needed to ensure the continuation of
life's positive experiences can be put in place.
The benefits speak for themselves. Just ask a senior
who has planned ahead!

Healthful Hints

of Tequesta Drugs
A Diversity of Diabetes Pills
If you or someone you love has diabetes, you know how
important it is to manage it well. What happens if you don’t?
You’re at risk for serious complications that can affect your
heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves—to name a few.
Some people can manage diabetes with meal planning,
weight loss, and exercise alone. Others also need medication.
Pills to lower blood sugar levels are one type of drug used to
treat diabetes.
Can diabetes pills help you? Not if you have type 1 diabetes.
Do you have type 2 diabetes? Then, you’re more likely to
benefit if you’ve had diabetes for less than 10 years and your
body still makes insulin. That’s the hormone that regulates
sugar levels in your blood.
There is more than one type of diabetes pill, and the FDA
has approved several new ones in the recent past. Sometimes
combining more than one type is the best solution. Or, your
doctor may prescribe pills plus insulin.
There are many classes of diabetes pills. They help you
control your diabetes in different ways. These drugs may do
one or more of these things:
· Stimulate the pancreas to release more insulin
· Decrease the amount of sugar the liver produces
· Make muscle tissue more sensitive to insulin
· Lower blood sugar, but only when it gets too high in your
· Help the kidneys get rid of extra sugar, which lowers
levels in your blood
· Block the breakdown of starches such as pasta and
potatoes, and slow the breakdown of certain sugars, which
slows the rise of sugar levels after eating
· Both lower cholesterol and reduce blood sugar
Isn’t it amazing how many different ways these drugs work?
If one doesn’t work well for you or if it stops working, another
may be more successful. That’s because doctors and
scientists think that the cause of type 2 diabetes is not the
same for all people with the disease.
If your doctor has prescribed one of these drugs, we can
provide you with more information. To help avoid interactions
with other drugs, print a list of all your medications, both
prescription and over the counter and bring the list when you
come talk to us.
We can answer other questions you might have about your
medication, such as: Are there special instructions for this
medication? Do I need to take the medicine with meals or at
certain times of day? Should I avoid taking this medication
with any foods, vitamins, or supplements? What are the most
common short-term and long-term effects of this drug?
As you can see, the arsenal for fighting diabetes just keeps
growing – and we haven’t even touched on new injectable and
inhaled medications. Let’s save that for another day!
Remember that we are “the Pharmacy with a Heart” and that
we are Here for You !!!

How to Maintain The Fountain of Self-Renewal In Our Current
Environment of High Stress, Pressures and Distractions
I have always believed that “life works best from the inside out.” What this
means to me is that I pay attention first to how my body feels and then to what
I am thinking about. This attention to my inner world serves me well.
When we devote our attention to our inner self, as well as our outer
world we can minimize the stresses that are all around us. For our
physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, it is vital to keep a
positive connection with yourself and, if possible, with those that you
work, live and socialize with. For many who keep their well-being as a
high priority, it is their "self-awareness” that is the key to maintaining a
low-stress profile.
Having self-awareness keeps us in touch with our mental, emotional
and spiritual health. We can do that when we accept ourselves warts and
all. It strengthens our ability to handle well the "slings and arrows of
outrageous fortune" -- as Shakespeare put it so well.
With knowing yourself in a deeper way, you enhance your self-image
and generate a new calmness, greater confidence and a strong sense of
inner security.
Through self-awareness, we make the discovery that we can move
beyond whatever self-imposed limitations we have made a habit, and
Page 35
replace them with feelings of excitement and serenity. A super-plus is that
relationships become much more satisfying and productive.
Developing self-awareness increases self-direction, productivity and
satisfaction. We stop feeling stuck or blocked. Any feelings of not being
“good enough” diminish. The work of self-awareness has a tremendous
impact on our sense of aliveness. Many things change with as we gain
inner strength.
A number of my clients were able to increase their self-awareness and
well-being in a "Self-Renewal Intensive" where they learned innovative
methods to communicate, problem-solve, adapt to change, meet their
needs and become more creative and successful. In the process they
created a personal "Wish List" that eventually became a reality in their
lives and thus gave them the support they needed to make their own selfcare a priority and a habit.
A Sample Wish List: Enjoy Incredible Relationships, Take Time For
Star-Gazing, Feel Successful, Not Take Things Personally, Act Assertively,
Manage Time More Effectively, Solve Problems Creatively, Stay On Top
Of Things, Stop Procrastinating, Connect To My Inner Wise Person, Feel
More Confident, Make Life Balance A Priority, Care For Self/Care For

Local Urgent Care Relocates

This Facility is a Full Service, Walk-In System that
Offers Fast Comprehensive Medical Care for Families
TEQUESTA -- Tequesta Urgent Care has relocated to
Village Square, 225 S. U. S. Highway One, effective in
September. Formerly Tequesta Urgent Care, the walk-in
medical care facility for families was acquired by the Helix
corporation in 2011. Helix was founded in 2008 and
dedicated itself to fast, comprehensive medical care.
John D’Amore, Marketing Director for Helix, said “The
company was founded by doctors Today, there are two
owners, one an MD, and the other a health care professional.”
He explained that

Services here also include Worker’s Compensation injury
care, Occupational Health Services, PCP and Specialist
referral coordination plus much more. Further, the urgent care
facility will respond to large company requests to plan special
in-company employee flu shots and other vaccinations.
The new facility occupies 3500-square-feet of space, which
is slightly smaller than the old location, only it has a better
floor plan which allows for more efficiency. The location
offers a new, fresh look in very comfortable surroundings.
The decor is a subtle beach theme which provides a serene
setting. Offices are well laid out. From a triage consultation
room, a patient can then move smoothly to the appropriate
health care professional. There is always at least one doctor
and two nurse practitioners available during regular hours.

Steppin’ Out by Bee Bee
WOW! It’s hard to believe November is here already. But,
with the “Turkey Month” upon us, there are lots of happenings
out there in our dining and entertainment scene and more to
The latest scoop is that professional golfer Tiger Woods is
going to open a sports restaurant in Harbourside Place. That
should be a draw. Can’t wait. He is going to call it The Woods
Jupiter: Sports and Dining Club. The restaurant is expected
to open sometime in 2015 and will occupy approximately
5,000-square-feet. In a press release, the golfer said, “I wanted
to build it locally where I live and where it could support the
community.” Meanwhile, with a soft opening of this huge
commercial and event plaza in October, other dining and
entertainment spots have opened as well as boutiques and
other businesses. The official grand opening will be in
December, according to the developers, Allied Capital and
Development of South Florida.
Here’s another late scoop – a group has taken over the former
Alberto’s Italian Restaurant in Tequesta’s County Line Plaza
and will be opening Legendary Sports Bar & Grill soon.
There will be a full menu with lots of appetizers, sandwiches,
wraps, salads, entrees and specialties. It will offer numerous
TVs for watching your favorite sports. There will be pizza
available, too. We’ll have more on this place later.
Scoop Number three; the former Sharky’s Bar & Grill just
west of the railroad tracks on Indiantown Road is receiving a
major make over. The operator of the new Old Florida Bar &
Grill is Bob Gregory (the original Duffy’s owner), who has
owned and operated the Riviera Beach Marina Tiki Bar for a
number of years. The tiki bar closed to make way for a major
development there. Gregory says he will still be at the marina,
as he plans to open another waterfront restaurant when the
development is completed in a couple of years. Meanwhile,
Old Florida Bar & Grill is expected to open later in November.
Basically it will be a seafood place, but offering several
options. It’s going to be a good one, folks. We’ll have more on
this place later.
Here’s an even later scoop than the items addressed above.
RJ’s Native Sun Café is moving to town from Jupiter Farms.
The Mesquite BBQ restaurant will open in the former
Cobblestone Café location in Tequesta’s County Line Plaza
December 1st. RJ tells us the café will feature the same awardwinning BBQ as before. I’m telling you, folks, you’ve got to

StrumminA ’R O U N D
by Jay Wolfe, proprietor of Wolfe Guitars,
I am really excited and honored that West Coast guitar great
Robben Ford has just agreed to conduct a music workshop-clinic here
in our Jupiter guitar shop December 13th.
Many west coast artists rarely get over to our side, and Ford just
happened to be recording in St. Pete the week prior, which allowed
me to arrange this event.
I have been a fan and admirer of Ford’s for several decades and
counting. I believe his guitar style and skills are among the very best
I’ve ever heard, AND, I love his singing and song writing.
He exudes great taste, superb phrasing, soul and feel. His music is
memorable for me, and not much is anymore.
We have been privileged to host some amazing musicians in our
Jupiter shop in the past, including such musical giants as Pat Martino,
Jack Wilkins, Richard Gilewitz, Roy Rogers (No- NOT the cowboythe Blues legend)), Randy Johnston and others. In light of the stature
of these men, I’m still over the moon that Robben Ford is going to
teach and perform in my shop!
Ford’s career is storied and vast, having toured with and recorded
with so many greats, including - Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Witherspoon,
Miles Davis, George Harrison, Phil Lesh, Bonnie Raitt, Michael
McDonald, Bob Dylan, John Mayall, Greg Allman, John Scofield,
Owner/Chef Arthur Rivaldo, originally from Columbia,
was trained in French culinary art, too. Now, with the
new Hog Snappers in North Palm Beach, the restaurant
is even more popular than ever. People are converging
on North Palm like wildfire. The restaurant there is
much larger, but offers much of the same type foods as
in Tequesta. The facility in North Palm is in the former
Mondo location. Soon, there will be a third Hog
Snappers in Stuart.
Have you been to Krave in County Line Plaza, Tequesta,
yet? This gourmet style restaurant produces exceptional
foods from owner and chef, Michael Rolchilgo. The chef
has just introduced new creative appetizers including
Trader Horn Farm Organic Soufflé with prosciutto di
Parma wrapped white asparagus on a toasted brioche, with
hackleback caviar. That sounds like a mouthful – and it is.
Also, there are some new entrees like blackened
Caribbean Red Snapper, mustard green salad, caramelized
onion hush puppies, Cajun aioli. Krave has a new dessert,
too. Try the Pecan Tart with coconut and Belgian
chocolate and full spiced whipped cream. The restaurant is
open Tuesday through Saturday from 5-10 pm.
Well, Bravo Cucina Italiana was the first business, in
fact, the first restaurant to open in the new Harbourside
Place development at U. S. Highway One & Indiantown
Road, Jupiter. It is located at the extreme northeast end
of the complex and overlooks the beautiful amphitheatre
Page 45
Susan Tedeschi, Keb Mo, Larry Carlton, Mavis Staples, Brad Paisley,
and many others. (See his online Discography for a more complete
list). His recordings with his own group are my favorites and we
listen to him often at the Wolfe household.
Here are a few YouTube videos I can recommend, for those
unfamiliar with this talented man:
The format for the clinic features approximately two hours of
teaching, a short break, and then (drum roll please) Robben will
perform/jam with a local rhythm section!
I’m selecting the lucky players now and hope to have a top flight
group standing by for Robben to perform with. We host this type of
event as a community outreach vehicle and we do not benefit
financially from them as the funds are for the artist. Our goal is to
provide a venue for these great musicians to feel comfortable and
welcome, and to lecture and teach local enthusiasts. Our in-store
events have been well received by local musicians and music lovers.
We are limiting this event to 30 very fortunate people. The cost is
$100 in advance, and we sold 11 the first day we posted it on
facebook. Guitar players in particular “love” this guy, and some that
are attending are excellent musicians themselves. An experienced
player can always glean a few nuggets from a musical giant like
Ford, and this is a good enough reason to participate, however some
are coming just to meet and hang with someone they admire so much.
After all ya’ll.........

Unique Singer/Guitarist is In
Popular Demand Locally
This New Hampshire-Inspired Performer Working
Singer Island to Jupiter/Tequesta is Very Powerful
JUPITER -- It is quite an adjustment to move from anywhere up
north to Florida, but when you are a musician from New Hampshire
looking to make performing a full time livelihood it is even more
time consuming,stressful and usually an uphill battle. Reason? There
are so many good musicians already here and competing for the
various venus. But, guitarist and vocalist Joe Birch broke the barrier
in just three short years.
Birch is booked as a solo performer six nights a week, sometimes
playing two engagements a day, something many musicians would
envy. But, despite this marvel, Birch is a seasoned musician with
considerable background performing with various groups in his
native New

high school.” He is
virtually self taught,
despite his early lessons. By the time he graduated from high school
he was playing with many rock bands.
It was only 10 years ago that Birch discovered he could sing. “I
had been content to just play the guitar before, but finding I enjoyed
singing I began to develop my own style and eventually hit the road
as a solo performer. But, in New Hampshire the bookings were slow,
so I worked a construction job up to the time I decided to move to
Florida and give full time music a shot.”
And, that he did, taking the local music scene by storm, reason
being, he has a very unusual vocal style and a sharp, snappy guitar
sound. We caught Joe playing the first time on a Monday night at
Shipwreck Bar & Grill’s upstairs bar. His voice is deep, somewhat
guttural, but powerful and on target. Some, he admits, have
compared his voice to Bob Seger, but we found it is more unique and
certainly Joe Birch. However, he can do a very good imitation of

Joe finds the music opportunities in this area to be really vibrant.
“I’m so pleased to be able to work all the time here and in so many
different places. It was fortunate that I had come to this area several
times on vacation and always thought it would be good to work into
the music scene here.” His schedule finds him performing Monday
nights at Shipwreck Bar & Grille, Tuesdays at the Marriott Hotel
Time Share on Singer Island, Wednesdays at Angry Moon Cigar Bar,
Fridays at Carmine’s Ocean Grill, Saturday afternoons at the Marriott

although he is constantly working to improve.
Attending a Birch performance is a real treat. His varied material,

New Farm Fresh Food Store
Available on Center Street
This Store is Located at Dix Landscaping, Yet is a
Separate Entity, Offering Locally Grown Fresh Foods
JUPITER -- Alice Odaffer and her family had turned to organic
foods nearly 20 years ago, so when the opportunity to take over a
business to offer farm fresh foods became available, it was a
natural things for her to do. She took over the former Terra Verde
Farms location at 5800 Center Street and opened Alice’s Farm
Fresh Foods in mid September.
Before she started the business, Alice met with small local
farmers to arrange obtaining these healthy foods, mostly organic,
Everything is in place now, and with the growing season in
Florida now upon us, she anticipates being very busy. “We had
many customers who referred others to us before,’ she said, “but
with our tourist season and the growing season now here, we are
hoping to build a healthy clientele from now through May, which
is the primary growing season.
Store owner Alice Odaffer (left) and clerk Amy Crockett are
shown by one of several attractive fresh food displays.
Ninety percent of the food grown by area farmers is available
within 90 miles of Jupiter. From the time the food is harvested to
the time it arrives at the store, it is less than three hours. Alice
said she receives shipments from certified organic growers
elsewhere, but only within the United States. Also, none of the
foods have been grown with the use of harmful pesticides or
fungicide and the produce is the best quality available.
“We’re really pleased to assist in the support of local small
farmers and in the long-term health of the community,” Alice
explained. “And, the nice thing about our foods is that the farmers
we buy from grow their produce for their families, not
“One of the reasons you should shop with us is that you will be
supporting local farmers,” Alice explained. “Why does that
matter, you may ask? Supporting local farmers is good for the
local economy because it keeps the small farmer in business. It
has become the norm for society to become dependent on huge
industrial farms which takes away the consumer's choice in the
quality of the food they purchase. The small-town farmer is
feeding his/her family from their farm, so great care is taken in
the stewardship of the farm.”
The refrigerated section at Alice’s Farm Fresh Foods keeps
the naturally grown produce cool and appetizing.
Alice said she would be pleased to purchase foods from
individual residents as long as they don’t use chemicals. “If you
or anyone you know grows fruit in the backyard and do not use
chemicals, let us know. We would love to buy fruit from you,”
she concluded.
Alice’s Farm Fresh Foods offers a delivery service to Jupiter,
Tequesta, Juno Beach and Palm Beach Gardens. The cost of
delivery for Jupiter and Tequesta is $5.00 and the rate for
delivery for Juno Beach and Palm Beach Gardens is $7.00. The
foods Alice sells are very reasonably priced, so the delivery fee
is implemented only to offset the gasoline used to get the order
to the address in a timely manner. Food deliveries are offered
Tuesday and Thursday between noon and 4:00 pm. Go to the
store’s website: to complete the
delivery order. You need only fill out the “Contact Us” form for
you first order. One can also sign up for Alice’s weekly
newsletter on the website to keep up to date on the delicious
foods arriving in the shop.
Besides the farm fresh foods, Alice also has fruit, sprouts and
greens (kale, lettuce, etc.). All the foods at Alice’s are great, but
her tomatoes are especially popular.
To learn more about the locally grown and organic sustainable
foods available at Alice’s Farm Fresh Foods call Alice at
(561) 768-9318.
A very attractive front entrance to Alice’s Farm Fresh
Foods is also inviting with a colorful sign that suggests
freshness and goodness.
