Ice hockey games are breathtaking, brutal, addictive and a serious boon to major league professional sports in South Florida. They’re also easy to attend and only a short distance down the road to BB&T Center in Sunrise (and group ticket packages are available with bus transportation).“Let the sports fans of Palm Beach County come to just one Florida Panthers game and they will be hooked,” said Peter Luukko, the team’s new executive chairman.
Established in 1993 by Wayne Huizenga, the Florida Panthers are an NHL franchise team owned by Sunrise Sports & Entertainment with owner Vincent Viola and Doug Cifu acting as co-owner. The Panthers’ general manager is Dale Tallon and the head coach is Gerard Gallant. More…
It’s already October and we have but a few short weeks before the start of the holiday season and the beginning of yet another new year. When you look back over the past 10 months, do you feel like you’ve accomplished your desired goals? Did you check off a few of your bucket-list items? Did you follow through on your New Year’s resolutions?
According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology by the University of Scranton in January 2015, it’s highly unlikely that you were able to accomplish your New Year’s resolution(s); only 8 percent of Americans report having done so. But take heart – those who make resolutions are 10x more likely to attain their goals than those who do not. More…
The old saying goes, “If you haven’t got your health, you haven’t got anything,” but taking care of you is a full-time job, and just keeping up with the latest health information is stressful enough. Do I eat kale or açaí berries? Do I need eight hours of sleep and eight glasses of water? CrossFit or Yoga? Do I count calories or carbs?
Let’s face it – a lifetime of good health doesn’t come without a little effort. Lucky for you, achieving that goal of optimum health just got a lot easier. The prescription is to have the right team of medical experts in your corner, because nothing beats quality care for looking and feeling your best, which reminds me of another old saying: “Take care of your body – it’s the only place you have to live.” More…
When Illnesses and Injuries Happen, Nicklaus Children’s Palm Beach Gardens Outpatient Center Is There to Help
It’s nearly bedtime and your child begins to spike a fever. Soon a rash develops and you know it’s going to be a long night. It’s an all-too-familiar story for most parents, particularly for Palm City mother Nicole Wojno, who recently faced both daughters simultaneously falling ill.
When 3-year-old Zoe and 1-year-old Abigail began to exhibit flu-like symptoms, Wojno knew she needed to act fast. Without hesitation, she brought her daughters to the nearest hospital emergency room in Martin County. Only after hours of waiting and misdiagnosis did Wojno realize she needed a new care plan the next time her daughters got sick.
Friends recommended she look into the Nicklaus Children’s Palm Beach Gardens Outpatient Center in Legacy Place. The Center offers walk-in urgent care services daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., serving as a convenient alternative for children facing non-life-threatening conditions. More…

So, you may be asking yourself, “What’s a swede?” More…
The Delray Beach Center for the Arts announced in August it has a found a new president and CEO to succeed longtime CEO Joe Gillie, who announced his retirement in 2014.
Rob Steele, who comes to the Sunshine State from Pennsylvania, officially started Aug. 24 to allow for overlap time with Gillie, whose last day is Sept. 30, the Center said.
For the last 10 years, Steele was the executive director of the Williamsport Community Arts Center, where he helped implement new practices into “one of the top venues on the Eastern Seaboard,” like event analysis and fee negotiations; marketing strategies and guest service enhancements; and an endowment campaign in 2010 that brought in more than $5 million in gifts and bequests.

Want to be transported to the 1950s when Chubby Checker debuted “The Twist” and the “Mashed Potato” was more than a side dish? Then grab your poodle skirts and leather jackets and sock-hop on over to North Palm Beach.
As a send-off to Bob Weisman, who retired as the Palm Beach County Administrator in August, the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County will be the beneficiary of a retirement party in recognition of Weisman’s service. The party, #FlashbackFriday, will be Oct. 2 at the Cars of Dreams Museum. More…
Go to a restaurant and look around. Chances are you’ll find couples on what might or might not be first dates, friends gathered around a greasy appetizer that takes hours on the treadmill to justify eating, and families enjoying what could be the only sit-down dinner they have together. Out of these groups, which ones do you see on their cell phones?
Before technology became such a powerful force, this number would be realistically low. Now, however, there’s “Hold on I’m watching this video,” “An item you’re bidding on is about to expire,” “wyd?” and other countless ways to distract ourselves for hours. More…
