NE 3rd Avenue “Quick Build” Workshop — August 26

Posted on 24 August 2021 by JLusk

 
 
The City of Deerfield Beach is partnering with the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization to temporarily redesign  NE 3rd Avenue between Sample Road and NE 44th Street. The aim is to make it a safer and more comfortable street for bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers based on input provided by you, the community! This temporary project, also known as a “QuickBuild” project, will transform NE 3rd Avenue for six months at a lower cost than permanent improvements. The project will be evaluated so that the project team and community can see what works (and what doesn’t!) for a future, long-term solution to the street. The project is being undertaken with the generous support of AARP Florida through its Community Challenge grant program.
 
They need your support! To learn more about this quick build project or to sign up to volunteer, register to attend the upcoming community workshop on  August 26, 2021, at 6 p.m. at Highlands Community Center (511 NE 44 St, Deerfield Beach, FL 33064) here:   http://arcg.is/Ta9H1 .

The Piano Man offers musical fun with Dueling Pianos

Posted on 27 July 2021 by JLusk

“Piano Mann” David Mann has been entertaining people for awhile now at Biergarten in Boca Raton (309 Via De Palmas #90). The singer/ songwriter keeps things upbeat during his dueling piano show, taking turns tickling the ivories with Leon Novembre. The duo belts out a bit of everything, from Elton John to Billy Joel, to Broadwat musicals and soundtracks. And they take requests! They will be back for more fun this Thursday, July 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. He is offering free drinks to the first three guests to submit a song request (with an email). This is a fun event to go to alone or in a group. 

The Biergarten has plenty of food and drink to purchase to enjoy the show. Note: At night they offer an affordable valet service as parking can be challenging at times.

Can’t make the show? David often offers up virtual shows. To find out more about David Mann, visit www.pianomann.com. To find out more about the Biergarten, visit https://www.biergartenboca.com/

Happy Birthday, Jada!

Posted on 26 July 2021 by JLusk

 

When Cove resident and Colorado native Linda Komatsubara was 22 she had not planned to have a puppy to care for, but when her brother discovered he could not keep his Rottweiler any longer in the college dorms, she gained a new friend. At that time, the puppy was a mere nine weeks old and Komatsubara fell in love at first sight. She wanted to make sure everyone else fell in love with the pup too and enrolled him in formal training and took him to “puppy socials.” She succeeded in turning her into a people dog, a protector, companion and “one of the gals.” Later, the pup took on being the mommy to two younger Pomeranians and the family cat.

Everything seemed fine for Jada until 2020 when Komatsubara noticed her little pup had gained a lot of weight, was sleeping more and getting up to go to the bathroom. She finally took her to the vet, who did an ultrasound and discovered she had an enlarged spleen. That led to going to another doctor and scheduling for surgery in hopes of prolonging the pup’s life for even 6 months. The family would take what they could get. The surgeon ended up removing a tumor the size of a volleyball! Luckily, the surgery was a success, the cancer was removed and her health began to improve. She even tolerated with ease another surgery to remove a small mass on her shoulder and lip.

Today, her mobility may be slow and she may have some arthritis, but six months since that first surgery and Jada is going strong. This month, Jada is celebrating her 16th birthday. Happy birthday, Jada!
