Abandoned homes


concern Gardens officials


BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS Increasing
numbers of homes in
Palm Beach Gardens are
being abandoned by
cash-strapped owners on
the brink of foreclosure,'
leaving behind weeds,


green pools and
headaches for neighbors
and city officials.
"Right now we have
homes, approximately 15
homes, that have been
left, with no one taking
the responsibility for
upkeep," said David
Reyes, a code enforce-
ment division officer for


Palm Beach Gardens.
"The city approach is to
identify the project or
home and notification
begins."
Once the city recog-
nizes that there is an
abandoned home, there
is a process of determi-

Teenager gives time, treasure


to nonprofit's annual event


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer


NORTH PALM BEACH -
It was chance that brought
North Palm Beach resident
Alana Dresner and the Gold
Coast Down syndrome
Organization of Boca Raton
together two, years ago.
It is The Benjamin School
eighth-grader's;love of help-
ing people that has kept her
involved with the nonprofit,
she said.
Alana, 14, has been a
member of her school's stu-


dent council, which is com-
posed of middle-school stu-
dents, since sixth grade. It
was during her initial year
with the council that one of
the advisors suggested the
group help out during Gold
Coast's annual Buddy Walk,
a fundraiser held during
National Down syndrome
Awareness Month in Octo-
ber at John Prince Park in
LakeWorth.
The 13th annual Buddy
Walk will be held Sunday,
Oct. 21, and the organization
is hoping the event will be

even more successful than
last year's, which brought in
approximately $75,000 and
1,325 participants, said Terri
Harmon, the organization's
executive director.
Money.raised at the event
helps the organization fulfill
its mission of educating the
public about Down syn-
drome, or Trisomy 21 as it is
sometimes known, and pro-.
viding better opportunities
for people with the genetic
disorder.
Ninety-five percent of
Down syndrome cases are


caused by non-disjunction,
which is an error in cell divi-
sion. An embryo winds up
with three number 21 chro-
mosomes instead of two
because prior to, or at con-
ception, a pair of the chro-
mosomes do not separate.
As the embryo develops, the
extra chromosome is repli-
cated in each cell, as stated
on the National Down syn-
drome Society Web site,

Palm Beach Gardens Elementary jumps from 'B' school to 'A' school


BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staffwriter
PALM BEACH GARDENS
- Palm Beach Gardens
Elementary School got an
"A" on Oct. 11 and teach-
ers are ecstatic.


Principal Linda Brown
was notified that her ele-
mentary school was no
longer a B-rated school
and can join the ranks of
106 schools in Palm Beach
County with the "A" dis-
tinction.


Teachers and students
worked hard this year to
receive an A, but were
shocked and upset when
they received a B on June
29. That's the day the state
announced schools' letter
grades, based on scores of


the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test,
which measures how well
students are performing
and mastering reading,
writing, math and science.
However, Florida
Department of Education


officials recalculated the
annual letter grades
because of an anomaly
within the FCAT. Now 16

syndrome facts

October is National Down syndrome Awareness Month.
About one in ever 800 American babies is born with
Down .,ndrome, and it is estimated that about 350,000
people in the United States live with this condition today,
according to the Down Syndrome Research and Treat-
ment Foundation's Web site, Ihttp:l/dsrrforg.
There are physical as ivell as mental abnormalities asso-
ciated with Down syndrome.
A flattened face, widely spaced and slanted eyes, small-
er head and lax joint- are some of die physical character-
istics. Mental retardation is also typical, as are a variety of
health problems, including poor resistance to infection,
hearing loss and heart defects.

council, including Alana, vol-
unteered to help at the event
by supervising children
enjoying the bounce houses,
pony rides, rock climbing
walls and games that are also
offered at the event, she said.
They also participated in a
1-mile walk. This year, partici-
pants can choose between al-
mile advocacywalk or a 5K fit-
ness walk. Alana is not sure
which one she will choose
since it depends on what
activities she helps with dur-
ing the event, she said.
Alana has continued to vol-
unteer with the event on her
own accord, and "most defi-
nitely" plans to stay involved
during high school, she said.
This year, Alana also made
a donation to the cause. The
walk had already happened
last year when she celebrated


her Bat Mitzvah at Temple
Beth David in Palm Beach
Gardens.
"As part of the process, the
celebrant is supposed to do a
'mitzvah' or good deed, which
can be anything of their
choosing. I chose to do some-
thing for the Gold Coast
Down syndrome Organiza-
tion because I just love what
they do," said Alana.
She set aside $500 she
received in gifts and donated
it to the organization this year.
"She had so much fun the
first year, that's what precipi-
tated (her continued interest
in volunteering with the
organization and her wish to
make the donation)," said
Alana's mother, Denise Dres-
ner, who also walked in the
event last year.
"My parents have always
taught me to give to others,"
saidAlana.
Her parents' influence
fanned her desire to help oth-
ers at an early age. After the
terrorist attacks of Sept. 11,
2001, Alana made red, white
and blue beaded bracelets
and sold them in her neigh-
borhood. She donated the
money, approximately $2,000,
to the American Red Cross,
she said.
In addition to volunteering
with Gold Coast, Alana has
also helped at her school's
summer camp and other
events in her community,
exceeding her school's com-
munity service requirement.
Benjamin requires its mid-
dle school students to com-
plete between 10 and 15
hours of community service
but Alana performed 174
hours of community service
last year and has about 90
hours already this year, she
said.

'Hope'
FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


PALM BEACH GARDENS
- Steven and Faith Smith
were living and working at a
foster care organization in
Baton Rouge, La., when they
learned about openings to
become "cottage parents" at
Place of Hope, a faith-based,
family-style child welfare
organization in Palm Beach
Gardens.
The couple, Steven, 38,
and Faith, 33, have been
married 17 years.
Not able to have children
of their own, and dedicated
to Christian teaching and liv-
ing, the pair have spent their
lives working with children.
The pair, who belong to
Christ Fellowship Church in
Palm Beach Gardens, have
done missionary work in
Latvia, Russia and the
Ukraine, where they taught
an accelerated Christian
education program to chil-
dren and worked with
churches just getting estab-
lished.
Both Louisiana natives,
the Smiths had lived in Boyn-
ton Beach for 10 years, so
they were familiar with Place
of Hope. They started Aug. 1.
The pair are now "cottage
parents" to six children,
ranging in age from 5 to 17.
The Smiths act as parents:
driving the children to and
from school, cooking meals
and helping with homework.
"I've found I have more
strength than I thought," said
Mrs. Smith. "You give up
everything to give love and
attention to kids whose par-
ents can't."
Mr. Smith agreed.
"It can be difficult and try-
ing at times. You learn you're
not going to be able to
change the children in a
short time. It's a long process
for them and you, but you
are working on it together."
State-licensed Place of
Hope, 9078 Isaiah Lane, pro-
vides foster care, outreach
and intervention, transition-
al housing, and adoption
and foster care support. It
celebrated its sixth anniver-
sary inMay.

Riding
From page Al


on the back lot of the
Christ Fellowship campus
with a special needs horse
(that was half blind) and
three special needs kids.
"It sprang up out of the
desire to help," said Mrs.
Szuka.
"One family in the
church had a child with a
disability and the church
rallied around them and it
grew from there."
The program has
become very successful
and on Sept. 22, opened
for its fall season, the 16th
in production.
The church has more
than 100 volunteers who
help out weekly and peo-
ple who volunteer horses
and transportation. Not to
mention the hundreds of
families who come togeth-
er during the season,
which will run until Nov.
17 and reopen after the
holidays in January.
"It is important to note
that along with the thera-
peutic horseback riding
program we also have an
arts and abilities program
that teaches sensory needs
and we have classes for
individuals to learn sign
language," said Mrs. Szuka.


"We also started a'shadow'
program where we train
people on how to work
with special needs kids."
Increasingly, experts
have been testing equine-
assisted activities for their
positive benefits. Equine-
assisted activities can
improve communication,
skills, self-confidence and
behavior. The potential
value of this learning can
be divided into two cate-
gories: physical and psy-
chological, according to a
study conducted by the
National American Riding
for the Handicapped Asso-
ciation.
Substantial physical
gains in posture, balance,
arm and leg strength, coor-
dination, and back and
neck strength were
demonstrated.
The psychological bene-
fits include improved self-
confidence, trust, courage
and motivation, as well as
increased social involve-
ment.
"A special relationship is
built between the rider and
the horse," said Mrs.
Azuka.
"We have a team of three
people, two side walkers


and the horse leader. The
relationship between team
and the animal does won-
ders."
Originating in Germany
in the 1950s, therapeutic
horseback riding is one
example of the implemen-
tation of companion ani-
mals to treat individuals
with disabilities.
Since then, numerous
programs have sprung up
throughout the world. The
North American Riding for
the Handicapped Associa-
tion says there are more
than 464 programs cur-
rently in operation in the
United States, which help
an estimated 23,000 indi-
viduals with disabilities.
"The most crucial com-
ponent to our special
needs work is to build up
community," said Ms.
Szuka. "to have a place
where people can connect,
a place where they belong
and isolation ends."
Mrs. Szuka added that in
her own personal struggle,
(with two daughters with
disabilities) the isolation
of the family, as caregivers
'and sufferers, is most diffi-

Health district votes for domestic benefits
The Palm Beach County Health Care District voted to
insure the domestic partners of its employees last week.
"Despite the close vote, it is encouraging that one more
public employer in Palm Beach County has taken steps to
recognize domestic partners as members of their employ-
ees' families," said Rand Hoch, president of the Palm Beach
County Human Rights Council in a press release. The Health
Care District provides funding for low-income families to
gain access to health care services.
Palm Beach Community College officials, including the
Palm Beach Gardens Eissey campus, looked into the benefit
plan earlier this year, but have not yet made a decision.
The heath district took about a year to bring the issue to a
vote. A comprehensive report on domestic partner benefits
was sent to the district commission in November 2006 and
adopted during the Oct. 10 council meeting. The vote was 3-
2 in favor of the benefits and the main debate was due to
increased costs to the district, said Mr. Hoch.

Shopping for area residents could get easier
Sunrise Senior Living, a senior assisted living company
based in McLean, Va., recently partnered with Publix Super-
markets to combine residential and commercial real estate
in Palm Beach Gardens for a senior living community.
The area, a 10-acre lot on the northern comer of A1A and
Hood Road, has been zoned as an RV trailer park since 1978.
However, with residential real estate not performing as well
as commercial, the proposal would change the land's status
to mixed-use.
The city of Palm Beach Gardens would need to annex the
property. It is currently considered part of unincorporated
Palm Beach County. The next step for this project is a work-
shop for planning and zoning and to go before the city
council sometime in November.
The shopping and residential areas will be in the same
place, said officials from Sunrise Senior Living, and residents
and retirees will be able to walk to shops.
Sunrise currently operates more than 440 senior living

SINGER ISLAND

Steering committee selected,
charrette scheduled

The city of Riviera Beach's Community Redevelopment
Agency's board recently asked the Treasure Coast Regional
Planning Council to help with the city's redevelopment
plans, and the ball is already rolling.
The Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council is a not-
for-profit organization created in 1976 through an interlocal
agreement between the counties it serves, Indian River,
Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach, to assist local govern-
ments with planning and growth-management programs.
The council credits its success to its charrette process,
which is a high speed, creative design process, said Michael
Busha, executive director of the TCRPC.
Charrette is the French word for "cart" and is often used in

"It is important to a
person with a disability
to feel encouraged and
needed," said Mrs.
Szuka. "Our programs do
just that."
The riding program is
open to anyone with dis-
abilities, Mrs. Szuka
added, but the horses
primarily work with chil-
dren. Adults with dis-
abilities take part in
helping with grooming,
in the stables and by vol-
unteering.
"We welcome those
with all disabilities and
have programs that
serve them from hear-
ing, speech, physical dis-
abilities, autism and
more," said Mrs. Szuka.
"We have a community
that is growing and those
who want to learn."
Chiist Fellowship Spe-
cial Needs Center; located
at 9265 Howell Lane in
Palm Beach Gardens, is
open from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. and will host equine
assistance, signing class-

ICJ Qji


cGre- not to think in terms of
[in St. genre. Besides, the genre of a
y and book varies.
"The For instance, my editor
look," said, why don't you try writ-
Using ing a series that isn't para-
stand normal, and I said time tray-
"Your el isn't paranormal, but my
Lunar editor said to the booksellers
chance it was.
g oth- Q: How do you like writing
series versus writing sepa-
book, rate novels?
t this A: It depends. When I first
started writing for Kensing-
suela- ton, my publisher now, I did
ed to a series of stand-alone
cGre- thrillers, and that was fun.
Shas But it's hard to come up with
.. new characters each time,
ies is which is why a series is easi-
)ct. 24 er in some ways. It's also
.14. more interesting that way
st in a because you get to see char-
el just acters evolve.
ave a Q: I know you've written
works under different versions of
your maiden and married
the name, but where did Alison
which Drake come from as a pen
'ut in name?
;equel A: When I was with Ballan-
yet.) tine I did two books with
:is up them under my maiden
efully, name, which nobody could
me, a pronounce. So, Chris said
n the come up with an adrogenous
name for this next series,
when which was the Quint and
you McCleary series, so I came up
series, with T.J. MacGregor. Then,
ththe when I came up with the
'? Tango Key series, he said mys-
st'had teries by women are out-
e. I try selling mysteries by men, so
we want you to use a female
name. So a friend of mine,
| said let's come up with a
name that references
i numerology. (The letters in
Sthe name reference number-
als that are personal to Mrs.
SMacGregor.) So that's howAli-
Sson Drake was born.
A lot of times they do this
stuff with names for market-
Sing purposes.
Q: I am surprised to hear
you've never taken a writing
course. How did you come to
be a published author with-
out having done that?
A: When I was in college I
never wanted to hear some-
one say to me 'you can't do
S that' or 'you can't do this,'
because part of that whole
experience is finding out what
you can do, rather than going
by someone else's rules.
I learned how to structure
stories by reading. I was a big
fan of Stephen King in his
early years as an author and
reading how he structured
his story really helped me. I
also liked Dean Koonz.
Q:Who do you enjoy read-
ing now?
A: Michael Marshall and
Graham Joyce. I like Nancy
Barcard's work. There are a
lot of science fiction writers I
just really love. There really
area lot of wonderful writers
out there.
I don't read a lot of myster-
ies because on some level, I
think. I'm afraid if I do, I'll
pick up stuff that they're
doing. I read a lot of science
fiction.
Q: In a previous interview
you gave with SuitelOl.com,
I read that your first pub-
lished book, "In Shadow,"
was actually your sixth
book. What roadblocks did
you hit when you were first
trying to become pub-
lished?


genre, for best original paper-
back in 2003. What was your
reaction when you found out
you won?
A: I was shocked. I knew in
February I had been nominat-
ed. I've never been on the
(New York) Times list, but I've
been nominated for a Shamus
award, which is given by the
Private EyeWriters of America.

To learn more about Mrs.
MacGregor, visit www.tjmac-
gregor.com.


A: There were several.
When you're just starting
out, you have to find an
agent, which is really hard.
Then you have to write
something the agent likes.
That's a big challenge. Then,
of course, the agent has to
sell it, so they have to find an
editor who likes your work. It
basically takes two people
who like what you do. "In
Shadow" was rejected 24
times before it got pub-
lished.
Q: You also said in the
interview not to become a
writer if you're "easily dis-
couraged." Was it hard for
you to follow your own rule-
of-thumb during those
rejections?
A: You have to have a thick
skin. Rejection is frustrating,
but it also forces you to hone
your skills.
Q: What's your advice for
novices or people trying to
get works published?
A: If you love it and you're
willing to persist, it pays off.
It's like Joseph Campbell
said, 'Follow your bliss.'
What I've learned over the
years is everyone has a story,
but not everyone's a writer.
Q: Does any of your real
life slip into your work?
A: Not really.
Q: You invented Tango
Key for your series. How did
that come about?
A: I just thought it would
be neat to have an island
that would be my idea of
paradise, and so I gave it
hills, which, of.course, we all
know there are no hills in the
state of Florida. It's really
funny. I got a letter from a
reader one time saying 'I
love your Tango Key books,
but your research is awful.
We have no hills in the Keys.'
I thought 'Yeah, you're right.
That's why they call it fic-
tion.'
Also, in fiction, I find it
makes it easier to have a
strong sense of place.
Q: In the excerpt from
"Cold as Death," the main
character, Mira Morales, is a
psychic and has a paranor-
mal experience in a house
on Tango Key. Have you ever
had a paranormal experi-
ence?
A: I've had a number of
them. Here's an example. In
2000, I had just returned from
a writers' conference and I
had a dream I was back at the
conference and someone
handed me a yellow card that
said your mother has passed
away. At the time, my mother
was in an Alzheimer's facility
and not doing well. My dad
had had the same dream, and
the next morning we got a call
from the Alzheimer's facility
that she had fallen and bro-
ken her hip. She died three
weeks later.
I've had a number of things
like that happen and not
always with death.
In January, I had a dream
someone called me up and
said my book sold to Russia,
and two days later I got this e-
mail from my agent saying
one of my astrology books just
sold to Russia.
Q: In the past, you've writ-
ten astrology books. Are you
still writing them?
A:Yes, I do still write astrolo-
gy books. I am an astrologer,
that's part of what I do. Also, I
find it helpful when I start a
book if I'm trying to figure out
who the protagonist and the
antagonist are. I usually draw
up birth charts for them and
then I can look at the chart
and say, 'OK, is this going to fit
this character,' and I make
adjustments until I get a chart
that I like. Astrology's good for
reading someone's personali-
ty.
Q:Whafs your sign?
A: I'm a Gemini.
Q: Would you ever like to
see your works turned into a
mini-series or movie?
A: Who wouldn't? I've had a
few options, but nothing has
ever panned out.
Q: You were awarded the
Edgar, an award named in
honor of Edgar Allan Poe,
given out by the Mystery Writ-
ers of America, a premier
organization of mystery writ-
ers and those devoted to the

Amanda Buckley a Palm
Beach Gardens softball star.
"His right to a speedy trial
runs out on Jan. 12 and
then it's up to the defendant
to waive that right," said
Mike Edmondson, execu-
tive director for the state
attorney's office. "No one
knows for sure what they
will do."
Mr. Shenfeld's case also
came in front of the court
on Oct. 11 for a violation of
probation charge.
"The actual new arrest is
the predicate for the viola-
tion," said Mr. Edmondson.


"Because he was charged
with murder, he is in viola-
tion of his probation, even
though there is not yet a
conviction."
Mr. Edmondson also said
that he could face up to 15
years in prison just for vio-
lating his probation.
Mr. Shenfeld, 26, is cur-
rently beign held in the
Palm Beach County correc-
tional facility without bond.
Ms. Buckley's body was
discovered by Mr. Shen-
feld's father in his son's
bedroom closet on July 20
at the family's Palm Beach


Gardens home.
A grand jury found that
Mr. Shenfeld forcibly
imprisoned Ms. Buckley,
against her will, with intent
to commit sexual battery
and/or murder, discovery
information from the state
showed.
Previously, the state
attorney's office dropped
charges against Mr. Shen-
feld, who was accused of
raping two women, 18 and
19, last November.
Mr. Shenfeld's attorney
presented 100 pages of doc-
uments to the grand jury


that looked into why the
state attorney did not pros-
ecute Mr. Shenfeld.
The grand jury also heard
information regarding a
relationship between Ms.
Buckley and Mr. Shenfeld.
The Buckley's gave their
daughter permission to
travel to the Panhandle on a
family trip with the Shen-
feld's that began on July 17.
Ms. Buckley went missing
after returning from the
trip.
Diane Shenfeld, Jason's
mother, told detectives she,
called the Buckleys to see if


they had heard from their
daughter. She also told offi-
cials she questioned her
son about why he locked
himself in his room after an
argument over missing bed
sheets.
Mr. Shenfeld's father
called his wife crying after
he discovered Ms. Buckley's
body under a pile of clothes
and a backpack containing
items investigators believe
were used in the crime.
"I didn't know what to
do," he said.
That evening, Mr. Shen-
feld fled the scene of the


crime, but was arrested the
next evening by U.S. Mar-
shals with the South Florida
Fugitive Task Force and
Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's officers.
During his hideout in a
North, Palm Beach motel
room Mr. Shenfeld called a
number of ex-girlfriends,
police reports show. One in
particular was Kellie Yeatts,
who contacted police on
July 21. She told officials
that Mr. Shenfeld told her
that if she wanted to see

Cranky old men

What on earth has gotten into local elderly men, recently?
They seem to have dedicated themselves to vexing elderly
women. Here are my recent experiences.
Last week, while selecting an ink cartridge at a local office
store, an elderly man sidled up to me and whispered, "Don't
tell me you know what you are buying," and then disap-
peared around the display counter.
On Tuesday, I exited a sandwich shop near Center Street
and, as I approached my car, I was greeted by an elderly man
who started to berate me for parking too close.to his car.
I looked at my mini-Cooper and had no proof that there
was a small pickup truck parked there when I arrived. This
man had replaced it with a big puffed-up sedan.
I noted his well-developed paunch and could see that he
would have troubles at many sites during the day.
Then, this new parking comrade launched into a diatribe
about my parking abilities, women drivers (who should not
be allowed on the road), women in general and why women
should not be anywhere at all.
The air was so full of his words that I had trouble following
the logic tossed at me. I answered, "yes sir," and "no sir," at
appropriate lulls in the barrage.
Then he threatened to key my Mini Cooper with so many
scratches that I would not recognize it. "Then what would
you do?" he asked.
I pointed wordlessly at his license plate and said I could
trace him thusly. Onlookers had gathered by then. He was in
his prime.
Now I noticed that he had a lot of hair growing out his ears.
I concentrated on that, first looking at the right ear, then the
left, as he ranted. I kept "sir"-ing him now and then.
He became aware of my inattentive attitude and all but
stopped in mid-sentence. I think I was amazed by the abuin-
dance of hair in the right ear at that point. He paused, ceased
the tirade, pulled his pointing finger from my face, blushed (I
continued to be interested in his ears), turned away and
wedged his paunch into his car.
As I exited the site, I glanced at his car. He was sitting so low
he looked like a gnome ... with koala bear ears. Of course, he
gave me the finger, but I drove off.
Now here is a bit of advice for elderly women drivers who
realize that their car is being followed by gnome/koala bears:
Do not go home. Instead, drive to the police station and park.
The car following will disappear immediately. Take three
breaths and go home.
Count your blessings. Be thankful he is not your husband
and hope he takes his medicine.
Do we women have to start our civil rights movement all
over again?

I love Jupiter but...

This is in response to the "rant" in the Oct. 12 Hometown
News, "Wants the old Jupiter back."
I think all of us who have lived in Jupiter for 10 years or
more would love to see the old Jupiter back! While I was read-
ing the article, I found myself saying, "this is ridiculous" over
and over again. I agree with the person who wrote the article.
The Jupiter Town Council has lost their luster and it seems to
me that the illegal aliens get treated better by the town than
the taxpayers do.
I love the rebuttal sent by town manager Andrew Lukasik,
and how "politically correct" it is.
It does not once address the concerns about the illegals,
nor does he ever say the word. This is rather typical because I,
myself, have had a few of my "rants" published about this
problem. I sent an e-mail directly to the town manager and
asked him if the people who are registered and are using the
El Sol Center, are checked for immigration status. Of course
the answer was "no."
If you read the rants and raves regularly, as I do, you will
notice a pattern. You can always count on someone trying to
address the issue about the illegal aliens in Jupiter.
In fact, every article, except one, had something to do with
this. The town council is obviously not going to do anything
about it, and the mayor actually flaunts it by inviting the
president from Guatemala here to see how nice the illegals
are being treated.
Granted, not all of the Hispanic population of Jupiter are
illegal, however, I can pretty much bet that most of the peo-
ple using El Sol are illegal. Why else would they sit inside the
center all day and wait for someone to give them work?
We need to take back our community and put a stop to the
gangs, the drugs and public indecency. It starts with the town
council and the police department. If we continue to be
naive, then things are going to continue to get worse ... a lot
worse! I love Jupiter and have since I moved here 23 years
ago. I miss it because it does not feel like home anymore.

The sacredness of life

All parents, teachers, media executives, business people,
government at all levels and religious practitioners should
teach young people about the sacredness of life.
All these weird skeletons, and other things, for Halloween
are definitely indicating that death is nothing more than
something to make fun of, and to amuse the people of Amer-
ica.

This is a disrespectful mockery of all those who have died,
and become, yes, skeletons. Do you think all those who died
in the wars would appreciate this absolute lack of sacredness
shown them?

Oh say can't you see,
we're supposed to be free

I can't tell whether it's moreamusing or sickening to read
the moral outrage of someone who has no idea what she's
talking about. They, says she, want to sing the national
anthem in Spanish. Of course there isn't any "they." This little
festival of ignorance began in early 2006 when a small group
of artists from several countries recorded the United States
national anthem in Spanish.
Needless to say, it hasn't been at the top of the charts, nor
did it ever represent some organization of Hispanic immi-
grants. And, needless to say, what they say and do isn't really
any of her business.
It's still a free country and it's no more offensive to translate
that song than to translate our constitution into French, or to
translate the Bible into English.
Of course she has no idea that an official translation of
Francis Scott Key's poem was commissioned in 1919 by the
United States government, long before the reworded bawdy
British drinking song called "Anachreon in Heaven," became
the anthem in 1931, much less than that all this psychodrama
played out 18 months ago.
More importantly, the right to free speech isn't subject to
her prior approval, her political party's approval or the
approval of the United States government.
That's why they call it free speech.
Remember when we used to be proud to be a free country?
We used to be proud to have the right to say what we pleased
before the self-styled fake conservatives found a way to enlist
the ignorant in their mission to destroy the constitution.
Very few immigrant ancestors learned simple English
quickly, or gave up their old languages completely.
Usually, only the young and the second generation ever
achieved fluency.
Usually immigrants congregated, published papers and
kept the old language alive. That hasn't changed.
The self-appointed censor who wrote that Sept, 28 rant can
go live in Burma if she hates the Bill of Rights so much,
because I have the right to say anything I want about the gov-
ernment in Spanish, or Greek or Zulu, and she will have to
pry that freedom from my cold, dead fingers.
I have the right to sing "Yankee Doodle" in Klingon, and be
free from infringements against the whole lot of freedoms we
have been trying to protect for more than 200 years against
the rage of cowards, politicians and idiots.

Do your due diligence

If someone is aware of cruelty to animals and would like to
stop as much of it as possible, be sure to check the Intern'et
before you buy any animal product or an animal.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has a wonder
Internet site that offers information about animals and how
to prevent cruelty to animals.
If you are considering purchasing a hamster, guinea pig,
bird or any animal in one of the big pet stores, PETA offers a
lot of insight into the cruelty in these stores.
Please don't purchase blindly when it involves feathers, fur
or any live animal.
Your help is needed, but first you must gain knowledge
about the cruelty associated with the products that are for
sale.

Helmet law

I have a comment about the helmet law that might be
passed again for motorcycles.
My opinion is that it should be passed again, because the
officers of the law and the paramedics have to handle many
unnecessary injuries to the head.
If people would stop and think, they would realize that they
are going to get hurt on a motorcycle. There are many head
injuries because of not wearing helmets. It should not be nec-
essary for law enforcement officers and paramedics to pick
people up off of the road for head injuries caused by not
wearing a helmet.


I ride motorcycles. I have ridden them for years. I have seen
people die from head injuries from falling off of the back of a
motorcycle that could have been prevented by wearing a hel-
met. In a car we have to wear a seatbelt. It is a precaution in
case of an accident.
Precautions should also be taken when riding a motorcy-
cle. I still ride, but I have seen numerous people die because
of head injuries that could have been prevented by a helmet.
They might not have died if they had been wearing a helmet.
I see motorcyclists going up and down the road at over 40
mph, maybe 60 or 65 mph, who do not wear a helmet. The
helmet is on the back of the cycle, but not on their head. They
just carry their helmets, but for some reason they don't wear
it. I think the helmet law should be passed again.
Novelty helmets should not be allowed; they crack.
Department of Transportation helmets are a lot stronger. I'm
not saying they could save your life. All helmets should be
inspected.
My friend had the top of his head severed. He is alive now. I
was there when it happened. It was a horrible sight.
He had a helmet on that was not a DOT-inspected helmet,
and it cracked right down the middle.

Too much negativity

In my opinion, it is not a sin to be a homosexual, nor is it
a mistake. I, too, am a firm believer in God, and I know
God makes no mistakes.
As for teachers, did you know, or did you forget, that
when the students go home, the teachers do not? The
teachers have to plan their lessons for the next day, grade
papers, tutor students, participate in school functions,
meet with parents, etc. This can lead to working several
hours into the evening. I know, because my sister-in-law is
a teacher. The job does not end when the last bell rings.
I enjoy reading Hometown News, but lately, in the rants
and raves column, there is way too much blame and nega-
tivity.
I'd like to say something positive.

Teachers' pay

I have a comment about the rant about the teachers pay.
What is the matter with people that we have an issue
with paying our teachers, which I consider and I would
think a lot of people would consider one of the most
valuable and important jobs that there is?
I personally have four members of my family, including
a daughter-in-law, a son, a niece and a daughter who are
teachers.
One has a master's degree in English, one is applying to
be nationally board certified and one has already won
awards in her district for teaching.
I'm very proud that I have family members who want to
teach and are good role models for young people. It's very
upsetting to me, personally, and I would think to many
other people that we find it necessary, to complain about
teachers who maybe make $43,500.
I find that number to be a little bit high, especially in this
state.

Apologies to all fat people

I am apologizing to anyone who was offended by the rant
that'I sent in previously. It was regarding fat people, and the
observation I had about the number of obese people at the
beach.
I didn't mean to offend anyone. I just wanted to state the
facts. Our population is growing bigger and fatter moment by
moment. We see more soda and more fast food everywhere,
every day.
I am not a high and mighty person. I happen to be a para-
medic and a personal trainer in my other job.I have noticed,
in the last 20 years, younger people of all races are getting big-
ger by the week and by the month.This is not something I
made up, it is a statistical fact.
When I criticize, I don't do it to be mean. I criticize to moti-
vate. As a paramedic, I would like to see more take better care
of themselves.
I happen to be the one that has to respond to all the heart
attacks, and people in trouble because they miss their insulin
shots, or their diabetic examinations.
I am sorry for criticizing, but I'm not sorry for what I said.

Which of these Costly Homeseller

Mistakes will you make when you

Sell Your Home?


BY LIz BACALL

A new report has
just been released which
reveals 7 costly mistakes
that most homeowners
make when selling their
home, and a 9 Step system
that can help you sell your
home fast and for the most
amount of money.
This industry report
shows clearly the traditional
ways of selling homes have
become increasingly less
and less effective in today's
market. The fact of the
matter is that fully three
quarters ofhomesellers don't


get what they want for
their home and become
disillusioned and worse -
financially disadvantaged
when they put their home
on the market.
As this report uncovers,
most homesellers make 7
deadly mistakes that cost
them literally thousands of
dollars. The good news is
that each and every one of
these mistakes is entirely
preventable.
In answer to this issue,
industry insiders have
prepared a free special
report entitled "The 9 Step
System to Get Your Home


Sold Fast and For Top Dollar."
This free report is
available 24-hours a day, 7
days a week through both
a recorded message and a
website. To hear a brief
recorded message about
how to order your free
copy of this report, call

Lawsuit
From page Al
the developers Palm
Beach Gardens-based
Catalftuno Construction
and the Marriott hotel
chain dismissed their
lawsuit against the city and
petition committee mem-
bers without prejudice. All
parties are responsible for
their respective legal fees.
OMRD sued the city of
Riviera Beach and five of its
residents over the valida-
tion of two amendments to
the city charter regarding
the Ocean Mall property.
The amendments were
added after the majority of
the residents voted for
them during municipal
elections in March.
OMRD won the bid to
redevelop the 11 acres of
property on the Ocean
Mall, and got approval
from the previous city
council for a 99-year lease
on the property last Octo-
ber.
Representatives from
Catalfumo argued that
they needed a lease of that
length in order to obtain
financing for the project,
since more banks and
lenders used that as the
length of time needed to
see a return.
The decision changed
the city charter and some
residents argued that they
should be the ones to
change the city charter, not
the council.
The city's charter allowed
for a 50-year lease to any-
one who leased the Ocean
Mall property. Catalfumo
had asked the city for a 50-
year lease with an automat-
ic 49-year renewal.
Singer Island resident
Dawn Pardo formed a peti-
tion committee, which
included residents Diana
DiMeo, Kathy Groover,
Draga Lindblom and Gor-
don Rowse, shortly after to
fight the decision. The
committee circulated two
petitions. One set a maxi-
mum lease of 50 years for
anyone who leases the
Ocean Mall property and
the other set a maximum
height of five stories for any
building constructed on
the property.
OMRD had planned to
build a 28-story mixed-use
building on the property,
but residents were not in
favor of that, since it would
block the view of the ocean.


J6


Residents were also wor-
ried the proposed project
would take away their abili-
ty to access the beach.
Although enough signa-
tures were collected to put
the items on the ballot, the
city and the petition com-
mittee got into .a dispute
because the council backed
city clerk Carrie Ward, who
claimed the petitions were
not administered properly
and some of the signatures
were not those of Riviera
Beach residents.
The city filed a lawsuit
against the petition com-
mittee.
Ms. Pardo countered
with a lawsuit that claimed
the city, its council and Ms.
Ward were not performing
their duties correctly. Since
the lawsuits involved the
same issues they were
ruled on by one judge.
Palm Beach County Judge
David Crow issued an alter-
native writ of mandamus in
regard to Ms. Pardo's case,
which meant the city had
to show cause as to why the
proposed amendments
should not go on the ballot.
When the city failed to do
so, Palm Beach County Cir-
cuit Court Judge Glenn Kel-
ley decided the items
would go on the ballot dur-
ing the municipal elections
in March, and both amend-
ments passed with a major-
ity of the vote.
However, OMRD argued
that allowing the residents
to vote on the items was
invalid. This led to prob-
lems for the developer
when it' sought site plan
approval for the first phase
of the project, which
includes the retail center.
However, the problem
with accepting the site plan
while the lawsuit was still
going on was that if Catal-
fumo won and the referen-
dums were declared
invalid, the developer
would still be able to build
a 28-story building on the
site, said Councilwoman
Lynn Hubbard at a public
meeting held at the Hilton
Hotel on Singer Island on
June 29.
At the same meeting,
Councilman Cedrick
Thomas told the developer
he would not work with
them until they dropped
the lawsuit.
Other terms of the settle-
ment included that the cur-
rent site plan for phase one

Education officials said.
"Because of the anomaly,
the 2006 third-grade FCAT
results cannot be used in
the calculation of the 2007
school grades. Specifically,
the portion of a school's
performance grade, based
upon annual learning
gains, as well as that por-
tion of a school's perform-
ance grade, based upon
the lowest 25 percent,
must exclude the 2006
third-grade reading scores
for Florida's public ele-
mentary schools," said a
notice from Florida State
School Board of Educa--
tion.
In basic terms, the state
issued a test considered
too easy in 2006 and then
had a faulty perception of
kids' reading ability in
2007. This had an effect on
how the 16 schools were
graded.
Since 1999, Palm Beach
Gardens Elementary has
received seven A's and two
B's.
"We were shocked to
have been given a B initial-
ly," said Ms. Brown. "The
teachers and students
worked so hard."
The incident has raised
questions about the
FCAT's reliability.
"The assessment of stu-
dent, school, school dis-
trict performance and
Florida's pubic school sys-


tern is heavily dependant
upon accurate student
achievement data from the
FCAT," said the notice.
"An inaccurate school
grade can deprive a school
of performance-based
funding and as a conse-
quence, students in need
of services, such as tutor-
ing and additional assis-
tance, will not receive such
services."
Palm Beach Gardens Ele-
mentary will receive -more
than S54.r ri in school
recognition program funds
from th- No Child Left
Behind program initiated
by President George W.
Bush in 2001.
Proponents say this test-
ing tactic is working but
others criticize the
mandatory testing style of
teaching and the funding
cut-offs.
"Due to the No Child Left
Behind and the FCATs
there is so much impor-
tance placed on the tests,"
said Kathy Walker, a resi-
dent and parent in Palm
Beach Gardens.
"The tests can harm
and/or improve a school's
reputation and can give
false results about how
kids are really learning ...
in the big picture."

Palm Beach Gardens Ele-
mentary is located at 10060
Riverside Drive.

BEAUTY TRENDS

N by Maria &Yanni

SALON

GOING HALFWAY
A hairstyle revived from the 1960s
featuring pinned-up hair on top and
long tresses on the bottom is making a
comeback. This half-up/half-down
style draws its inspiration from no less
a classic beauty than Catherine
Deneuve, who wore it in the 1967 film
Belle de jour. To get this style, after
blow-drying hair straight with a round
brush, gather a two-inch section of
hair from the front-center section and
secure it at the crown with a large, flat
barrette. Next, push this section
forward a bit, making it sit higher.
Finish with a spritz of lightweight shine
spray at the sides, and blow-dry them
(on the cool setting) so the sides and
back will be straight.
The half-up/half-down hairstyle can be
a flattering look for a social gathering.
At JONATHAN T' SALON, we are here
to provide extraordinary service to all
of our clients in a professional and
relaxing environment. Our hairstylists
believe that hair design is a creative
process based on an understanding of
your needs. We offer up-do's, design
cuts and styling, colors, and perms.
Complete your look with a
personalized make-up application,
Call us at (561) 626-1829 to schedule
an appointment, or visit us at 4517
PGA Blvd. Business hours are Mon.,
10-4; Tues., Thur., 9-9; and Sat, 9-5.
HINT: The face-baring style described
above is best suited to women with
straight or wavy hair that is at least
shoulder-length.

Dealer reputation not

sullied by Earl Stewart SMARTEN UP"


Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager of Earl
Stewart Toyota in North Palm
Beach. ,The dealership is
located at 1215 N. Federal
Highway in Lake Park. Con-
tact him at www.earlstewart-
toyota.com, call (561) 358-
1474, fax (561) 658-0746 or
e-mail earls@earlstewarttoy-
ota.com.
The private feedback
I get from other car
dealers who read
this column, listen to my
radio talk show at 9 a.m.
every Saturday on
www.SeaviewAM960.com or
see my advertising (view all
my TV commercials at
www. YouTube.com/Earl-
StewartToyota) is that I am
causing damage to their
reputations.
Let me hastily add that they
won't state this publicly No
car dealer has ever written a
letter to the editor of Home-
town News. They will post
negative statements on my
blog, www.EarlStewartOn-
Cars.com, but always anony-
mously. I've had only one call
to my radio show from a car
dealer and he wanted to
remain anonymous.
First let me say that I have
been doing my Hometown
News column for less than
two years and my blog for
about the same time.
My advertisements against
the dealer fee and such have
only been running for three
to four years. My radio show
is less than a year old.
Given this, how did car
dealers earn such a bad repu-
tation before I started talking
about it?
I've been a car dealer since
1968. I can never remember
car dealers not having a bad
reputation.
Comedians joke about car
dealers as much as they joke
about lawyers and politicians.
In fact, car dealers have
even had movies made about
their slimy way of doing busi-
ness. Two of them are "Cadil-
lac Man," starring Robin
Williams and "Used Cars"
starring Kurt Russell. I've
always been acutely aware of
the generally bad image that
car dealers have. That may be

father was a car dealer.
I studied physics in college,
earning my bachelor's degree
from the University of Florida
and my master's from Purdue
University in Indiana.
My first real job was as an
electronics engineer for West-
inghouse Electric. I had those
early years working outside
the car business to give me a
better real-life perspective
when I came to work for my
father in 1968.
Surely other car dealers are
aware of their generally bad
reputation. How Ido you sup-
pose they think it came
about? Can they believe that
our reputation is a mistake,
and that most car dealers
really treat their customers
with integrity, courtesy and
respect? Do they believe that
customers are simply not-
telling the truth about their

bad experiences with car
dealers?
Anybody who has ever
been to a party or other social
event has to have overheard
at least one horror story
about someone buying a car
or having their car serviced.
I'm going to assume that
car dealers really did know
that they had a bad reputa-
tion before Earl Stewart came
along. I think they are simply
angry at me because I'm call-
ing more attention to a prob-
lem that everybody already
knows about. And they're
mad because I'm offering
advice to customers about
how to avoid the pitfalls in
buying a car and having it
serviced.
But the biggest reason they
are furious with me is that
they see my business growing
relative to theirs. They see
their customers coming to
my dealership to buy their
next car because they know
they will be treated with
respect, courtesy and integri-
ty.
I had one anonymous e-
mail from a dealer saying,
"the only reason I have four
red phones around my deal-
ership that customers can call
me directly on is because I
don't trust my employees."
My answer to him was, "the
only possible way I would
dare to have four red phones
that customers can call me
directly on seven days a week
is because I do trust my

Review
From page A3
government speak to mean
groups of people coming
together to intensely tackle a
challenge.
The Treasure Coast council
has a city select residents to
serve on a steering committee
as a way to bridge the gap
between the TCRPC, the city
and residents.
Former city councilman
and Judge Ed Rogers is chair-
man of the CRAs steering
committee. Singer Island resi-
dents Dawn Pardo, Richard
Pinsky, Gerald Ward and Riv-
iera Beach resident the Rev.
Donald Duncombe are com-
mittee members. They will
assist the TCRPC in hosting its
charrette, which begins with a
kickoff design workshop at
Riviera Beach City Hall in
council chambers on Oct. 20.
The charette will continue
though Oct. 24, and the com-
mittee will present what they
learned during the process to
the city council, sitting as the
CRA board, on Oct. 26.
"The TCRPC will take all of
the information gathered dur-

Stewart


ing the six-day event, sketch
plans and (create) a report
(which will take about six
weeks to produce) and then
present it to the committee
for feedback," said Ms. Pardo.
"The committee and Treasure
Coast (Regional Planning
Council) will then present it to
the (city) council and resi-
dents."
"If we do our job right and
we have hundreds of people
showing up at the charrette
on Oct. 20, we would have
carried out the mandate from
the council," said Mr. Rodgers.
"No one should be able to
say 'I didn't know anything
about it,'" he said.

Contract renewal
postponed

Floyd Johnson, executive
director of the.Riviera Beach
City Redevelopment Agency,
had his contract temporarily
extended at the CRA board
meeting on Oct. 11.
Mr. Johnson's contract was
written in such a way that
evaluations of his job per-
formance needed to be com-
pleted before his contract


could be renewed, said
Michael Haygood, CRA coun-
sel, at the meeting.
Mr. Johnson's contract
expired at the end of Sep-
tember. The CRA board,
which also sits as the city
council, was supposed to
complete his evaluations at
its meeting last month.
However, Councilman
Cedrick Thomas had a death
in the family and asked that
the evaluation be postponed
so he could be present for
the discussion, said Mr.
Johnson.
Councilman Jim Jackson,
who represents Singer
Island, made a motion to
extend Mr. Johnson's con-
tract for another month,
during which time the board
will meet with the director
for one-on-one evaluations.
The decision to renew Mr.
Johnson's contract will be on
the board's agenda in
November.
The board's meeting had
been scheduled for Nov. 14,
but members will be in New
Orleans for the National
League of Cities meeting.
Another date has not been
determined.

employees."
Think about this. My deal-
ership sells 400 to 500 cars
every month and services
thousands more, making it
one of the largest car dealer-
ships in the world.
If my employees did not
take very good care of all
those customers, how could I
possibly personally answer all
those complaints?
The fact is that the reason
other dealers don't allow cus-
tomers to have direct contact
with them is because they are
afraid.
In every organization there'
is a mentality of"never let the
boss hear a complaint." Of
course, that could be a good
thing if she/he never heard a
complaint because all the
customers were happy.
But 40 years of experience
has taught me that the nor-.
mal way that the boss never
hears the complaints is by not


allowing customers access to
the boss.
That's your problem, Mr.
car dealer. You think (or
maybe you just want to think)
your employees are doing a
good job satisfying your cus-
tomers because you don't
hear any complaints. Or
maybe you think you are
doing a good job in this cate-
gory because the factory cus-
tomer satisfaction. surveys
look good. Have you read the
expose in Automotive News
about how car dealers rou-
tinely rig customer satisfac-
tion surveys?
Salesmen offer customers a
free tank of gas if they will
bring them their "blank"' sur-
vey so the salesmen can fill it
out themselves. Or, the sales-
man gives the manufacturer a
phony e-mail address so the
survey goes to a PC at the
dealership, instead of to the
customer.


There are lots of tricks like
this to make a dealer's cus-
tomer satisfaction score look
a lot better than it really is.
The only accurate way to
measure customer satisfac-
tion is by measuring how
many customers who buy a
car from you buy their next
car from you: that's customer
loyalty.
In your service depart-
ment, how many customers
bring the car they bought
from you back to you for serv-
ice? That's customer reten-
tion.
Toyota has told its dealers
that they will begin to meas-
ure customer satisfaction in
this manner in 2008. My cus-
tomer loyalty and retention is
very, very high.
If you are one of those car
dealers who think everything
is hunky dory, maybe you
better take a look at these two
numbers.

nation and then an
approval by a judge is
needed to go on site.
"When we determine the
house has been aban-
doned, we bring it in front
of a special magistrate or
judge where we present the
facts and get an approval
for clean-up," said Mr.
Reyes.
The code enforcement
department recently had a
meeting with city financial
officers in regard to spend-
ing projections to care for
abandoned homes. With
city with budget cuts in full
gear things are tight.
"We are trying to be
proactive and work with
the finance department
now, because this is some-
thing we haven't seen
before in the city," said Mr.
Reyes. "If we need to come
up with more funds, then it
will have to go in front of
the city council."
Presently, the city spends
an average of $600 to
$1,200 just on initial clean-
up of one property, and
then anywhere from $60 to
$100 for monthly mainte-
nance.
However, some home-
owners are taking it upon
themselves to solve the
problem of eyesores in the
community.
For instance, one group
of neighbors on Holly
Drive got together and
went to work to clean up
over-growth and give some
TLC to a nearby neglected
property. Four or five
neighbors pitched in.
"It makes me feel like I'm
glad I work for this city and
the people who take such
great pride in their neigh-
borhoods," Mr. Reyes said.
Foreclosure rates are at
an all time high in Palm
Beach County. According
to the Palm Beach County
Clerk of the Court, 1,196
foreclosures were recorded
in September 2007, com-
pared to 509 in September
2006.
Some of these neglected
homes are tied to declining
home ,values, adjustable-

rate mortgages and other
effects of the housing mar-
ket slump, however, other
reasons such as divorce,
death or loss of a job can
also come into play.
"Generally speaking, we
are not seeing an over-
whelming number of
abandoned homes
because of our code
enforcement officers," said
Gary Nikolits, the Palm
Beach County Property
Appraiser. "They look for
these overgrown lots and
will contact the owner, the
bank or the mortgage com-
pany for maintaining the
property."
But the issue is not only
that abandoned properties
are eyesores and lower
property values, there are
also safety concerns.
"First and foremost, fire
hazards, pool safety, mos-
quitoes and ground water
issues are just some of the
problems that we've seen,"
said Donna Giuliana, pub-
lic relations director for
Palm Beach Gardens.
"There was some money
put into the budget for
life/safety issues, especial-
ly if the home has a pool
that is not fenced and it's
gotten to a point you can't
see what is in it."
So what are abandoned
properties doing to neigh-
borhood property values?
"The value of a property
is comprised, depending
upon the condition of the
home," said Mr. Nikolits.
"When some people walk
away, they could damage
the interior and it also
impacts the outside or
curb- appeal of the home."
This was never an issue
until now, said officials at
the code enforcement
office. Officials from the
property appraiser's office
said that the county may
see an even bigger number
of foreclosures next year.
This has many people
asking how low will it go?
With interest rates
remaining low, some brave
analysts are reporting an
upswing by 2009.

The cast of 'Food Fight!' had their world premier at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre last week.


Playing with food is play's theme


BY DANIEL SHUBE
Entertainment writer
JUPITER It's not every
day that a world premiere
takes place in Jupiter.
S"Food Fight!" a new musi-
cal, written and produced
by former Jupiter (currently
West Palm Beach) resident
Alan Jacobson opened at the
Maltz Jupiter Theatre on
Oct. 11.
Mr. Jacobson has been
producing theater since
1992.
"Back in 2001, I went to
see 'Menopause the Musi-
cal.' I sat in the audience
dumbfounded, bewildered.


I didn't get it," he said. "But
the audience responded.
This was a new kind of audi-
ence, not the traditional the-
atergoer.
"I followed the progress of
'Menopause,'" said Mr.
Jacobson. "It has played for a
long time, all over the coun-
try."
He began to think about a
topic for a show that could
rival the popularity of
"Menopause."
S"The first thing to come to
my mind was food. People
talk about it all the time,"
Mr. Jacobson said.
As Mr. Jacobson thought
about his topic, he worried,


"Is it enough? So I began
writing about how we view
ourselves, self-esteem; the
fight between food and our-
selves, how we deal with it
and overcome the struggle."
So, did he succeed in his
first writing effort?
"Food Fight" is true to
form and does exactly what
Mr. Jacobson set out to do.
The lyrics he wrote to the
tunes of songs such as "If I
was a Rich Man" ("If I was a
Size ITo") or "I Feel the.
Earth Move" ("I Feel My Butt
Squeeze") were quite clever.
The cast seemed to be
having fun as they exercised
and wrestled with their food


Sunday


cravings.
Connie (played by Missy
McArdle) stopped the show
on more than one occasion
as she belted out her tunes.
The women in the audi-
ence also got into "the
fight."
Similar to a show such as
"Menopause" the men in
the audience seemed to be
struggling to find meaning.
The good news for the
guys is that is wasn't all bad.
And, since the women were
having so much fun, take-
your wife or girl friend and
score some serious points.

Band finds way home


BY STEVE ZIMMERMAN
Staff writer
PALM BEACH COUNTY
Legendary rock band
REO Speedwagon has
recorded a new studio
album that brings its classic
rock sound into the 21st
century.
"Find Your Own Way
SHome" is the first studio
album from .the band in
i years. For many years, the
* band recorded a new
I album every year.
-: Area fans of the band will
Shave the opportunity to
hear many of the new
songs, along with old
favorites, such as, "Ridin'
The Storm Out," "157 River-
side Avenue," "Keep On
Lovin' You" and "Take It On
The Run," when the band
comes to the Sound Advice


Amphitheater in West Palm
Beach with touring mates,
Styx and .38 Special.
If you have read reviews
online of the new CD by the
band's fans, it seems as
though they never stopped
recording.
Dave Amato, REOs guitar
player and a member of the
band since the early 90s,
said going back into the
studio felt great.
"It energized the whole
band. It has been 10 years
since we had a new CD
out," he said. "The fans love
the songs live. It is fantastic
to see people coming to the
shows and singing the
songs."
Arid, Mr. Amato noted,
the new songs are keeping
fans in their seats.
"Usually, when a band
starts playing new .songs,


people tell us that's time for
a bathroom break," he said.
"They are really good songs
and we are doing three or
four of them live now."
"Find Your Way Home" is
almost a continuation of
the music REO started
making on their very suc-
cessful CD, "High Infideli-
ty."
"That is a very fair state-
ment. Even Kevin (lead
singer Cronin) has said that
in the past," Amato said.
"They are short songs and
there is not a lot of soloing
on the CD. It is streamlined
to what the song should be.
"I put a lot:of texturing of
guitars on the CD. There are
six-stings and 12-strings
with really good words and
melodies."

Lake 0 is topic of lecture


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

JUPITER Christian
Davenport, Palm Beach
County's official archaeolo-
gist, will be guest speaker
on Oct. 25 as part of Loxa-
hatchee River Historical
Society's free lecture series.
"Recent Historical Finds
at Lake Okeechobee, Flori-
da's Exciting Past Uncov-
ered," will be presented at 6
p.m. at the Juno Beach
Town Center 'Council
Chambers located at 340
Ocean Drive.
The series is sponsored
in part by the Town of Juno
Beach.
Drought conditions at
Lake Okeechobee have
been so extreme this past
year that the low water lev-
els revealed a secret when


Glades s resident George
"Boots" Boyer spied the
remains in the mud of a
catfish boat from the early
20th century.
Since then, more than 33
historic resources have
been identified that con-
tain relics from pre-historic
times to the 1900s. Mr. Dav-
enport has been involved
with the investigations
from the beginning and
continues to visit the sites
while lake levels are still
below normal. Tokens of
human habitation buried
in the waters for hundreds,
even thousands, of years
are currently in the hands
of archaeologists and con-
servationists.
Mr. Davenport will dis-
cuss these finds in his pres-
entation and answer ques-


tions at the lecture.
He has been involved in
archaeological investiga-
tions from Maine to Mexi-
co, worked for the Ten-
nessee Valley Authority and
taught at the University of
Baltimore and Johns Hop-
kins University in Balti-
more.
The Loxahatchee River
Historical Society operates
the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse
& Museum and the DuBois
Pioneer Home.
The lecture series is free
to the public, but dona-
tions are welcome. Seating
is limited. To RSVP, call
(561) 747-8380, Ext. 101.
For future lectures and
additional programs, visit

Band
From page B2


A commercial for Holiday
Inn Express immortalizes
the band's "Take It On The
Run." In it, three middle age
men sitting in a hotel room
begin humming the song
after one of the men starts
while listening to the song
on his computer.
Amato said the band gets
a big kick from the com-
mercial.
"We didn't know about
it," he said. "We just started
seeing it when watching the


baseball playoffs. It is great.
Bruce (Hall, bass player)
saw it for the first time the
other night and he started
laughing."
REO was traveling
through Tennessee when
Amato called, stopping in
Chattanooga for a concert.
REO is reuniting with Styx
for the Florida portion of
their tour. The new material
has reenergized the band.
"It gives us something to

the hits all the time. We
have been doing it with this
band for 18 years," he said.
"You want to try to continue
to expand your music. I put
my heart and soul into this
record."
Because the band has not
recorded much since he
joined the band, Amato
said he feels more owner-
ship in the new music.
"This record means a lot
to me. I spent a lot of time
on this record. I even
helped produce this
record," he said. "I had a lot
of input on how it went. It
was great for me."
Amato, who has been in
the band for 18 years, has
never played in one group
this long.
"I was with Cher for three
to four years and (Ted)
Nugent was three and one-
half years," he said. "I would
do a record and a tour with
a band and that would be it.
I thought, if I got a good
three years in, then I would
go on to something else.
"This is the most fun I
have had in the business.
We have done a lot of stuff
together over the 18 years.
We are closer than ever
now."
REO has toured with
many different bands this
year.

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

PALM BEACH COUNTY
- Donations are now
being accepted for WPEC
NEWS 12's Project Thanks-
giving, a program that pro-
vides Thanksgiving meals
to families in need living in
Palm Beach, Martin, St.
Lucie, Indian River and
Okeechobee counties.
A contribution of $20 or
more will provide a
Thanksgiving turkey to
local families.
Project Thanksgiving is a
partnership of WPEC
NEWS 12, Winn-Dixie Mar-
kets, the Palm Beach Ken-
nel Club and Wachovia
Bank. Administrative sup-
port is provided by United
Way of Palm Beach County
and the Palm Beach County
Community Food Alliance.
Last year, with donations
from the community and
corporate sponsors, more
than $115,400 was raised.
The partners stress the
need to provide struggling
families with a holiday
meal, and hope the com-
munity will be as generous
as in the past.
"Our community food
providers, pantries and
soup kitchens that take on
the responsibility of serv-
ing our food insecure pop-
ulation, struggle on a regu-
lar basis to meet the needs
of those who are hungry in
our community," said Perry
Borman, director of the
Palm Beach County Com-
munity Food Allinace in a
press release. "The amount
of food provided to these
groups by the federal gov-
ernment, has declined by
50 percent in the state of
Florida since 2002," "NEWS

Ladies, if you cannot get
your man to take you, go
with your girlfriends.
Mr. Jacobson sought to
write a show similar to
"Menopause the Musical."
He succeeded. He wanted
to provide the audience
with a message about eat-
ing healthy. He did a good
job at that as well. He
hoped that his show would
premier in Jupiter and con-
tinues for a long run. He is
off to a great start and I
would not bet against
"Food Fight" or Mr. Jacob-
son.
"Food Fight!" continues
through Oct. 28. Tickets are
$32-$36. For more informa-

Predictors of marital success


ll you people who've
never been married,
you think it's easy?
Think again.
Oh, sure, the first couple
of years might be a blast.
You're young and in love,
no kids, both working,
plenty of money, the world
is your oyster and you face
it all together.
White lace and promises,
a kiss for luck and we're on
our way ... just lovely.
Even people who've done
it before can be pretty
naive about it. Despite
whatever we've been
through in the past, this
time it'll be different.
Wait 'til you have a kid.
Things will change. And
what are you going to do
when you "fall out of
love?" Think you won't?
Well, maybe, but if you do,
then you're going to have
to learn the real meaning
of love. And that's not the
same as the romantic
meaning of love. I hope
you can handle it. I'm
afraid you're going to have
to grow up in order to
accomplish this. And that
means letting go of things
you thought were yours to
keep: your partner's
undivided attention,
unconditional positive
regard, your independ-
ence.
Marriage isn't about
independence, it's about
interdependence. You'll
have to work all this out
together. Try keeping that
up year after year, through
all the transitions. I hope
you don't think it's all
supposed to happen
automatically. If you want
it to last, you're going to
have to learn how to
maintain this great love of
yours.
And how about fantastic
sex? Think you can keep
that up? What if your
partner gains a few
pounds the way most of us
do these days? Is that
gonna' be OK, too? What if
one of you gets sick? What
if your partner stops being
affectionate for some
reason, obvious or
obscure? Still gonna' feel
warm and cozy then?
Think you can resist the
temptation to stray? What
about when home
becomes boring or chilly?
Will you be able to fix it?
Maybe you're not so
naive and maybe you
realize how fragile love is
and how easily it can all go
south on you, if you're not
careful.
Maybe you know what to
do and you're willing to do
it. In that case, congratula-
tions! You're in the minori-
ty. Most of the others will
just have to fumble
through it, hopefully
learning along the way,


(." I

HUGH LEAVELL
One Minute Therapist

sometimes the hard way.
Can we eliminate blind
chance from this project?
Arewe necessarily
doomed to stumble into
the same traps, binds and
conflicts over and over
again? No, not really. Not if
you choose to benefit from
50 years of research that
tell us how to predict a
couple's success at mar-
riage, that most tempting
and challenging of all
relationships.

Three dimensions
of preparedness

Scholars tell us that
readiness for marriage and
likelihood of success in
marriage can be assessed
by looking at three dimen-
sions: contextual influ-
ences, individual traits
and couple traits.
Contextual influences
include things such as
family of origin traits:
degree of cohesion and
healthy conflict resolution
in the families you and
your partner come from,
the quality of parent/ child
relationships in those
families, the quality of
parents' marriages and
parents' mental health and
emotional maturity.
Also, cultural factors
have their influences, such
as age, education, social
class and income.
For success, these should
be roughly similar. The
fewer and less severe the
cultural gaps between
your own and your part-
ner's backgrounds, the less
demanding and stressful
spanning those gaps
should be. This isn't
getting any-easier for most
people, as our poolof
potential eligible partners
expands and gets more
diverse.
We're getting around a
lot more than we did in
the "old days" when you
usually married someone
from the same hometown.
This means you'd better be
good at cross-cultural
dialog (diplomacy, negoti-
ation).
Other contextual
influences include the
approval of friends and


family, internal and
external pressures to
marry (such as age,
pregnancy or geographic
separation, which might
cause a couple to marry
before they're ready.)
SIndividual traits that
would have a negative
impact on success include
emotional problems
(neuroticism), impulsive-
ness, anger and hostility,
depression, irritability,
anxiety, self-conscious-
ness and difficulty manag-
ing stress.
Positive traits would be
sociability, flexibility, high
self-esteem, assertiveness,
and conventionality. (Yes,
conventional peoples'
marriages last longer.)
Good physical health is
associated with good
emotional health, so it's
also predictive of marital
success.
Couple traits refer to
specific dimensions of a
relationship: homogamy,
i.e., similarity of back-
grounds, is a.good predic-
tor (race, religion, age,
socio-economic and
ethnic roots.) Also, a
similarity in interpersonal
values, e.g., sex role
orientation and a common
conception of what
constitutes a well-lived
life, should help in achiev-
ing satisfaction and
success.
Finally, inter-actional
processes, such as conflict
skills, how long you've
known each other,
whether you've co-
habitated (doesn't help),
pre-marital pregnancy
(doesn't help, either) and
rate of communication
(more is better) can
indicate either a favorable
or unfavorable prediction.
So, you see, you're not
really navigatirfg without a
map.
Still, it seems many
couples don't wish to look
realistically at their
chances for success. They
just want to rush blindly
ahead and they don't want
to hear any negativity
about it. People in love
don't want to hear any
doubts regarding their
marital suitability or
preparedness. They'd
rather pick up the pieces
later, I guess.

YOUTA H


Dwyer defensive


back carries on


family tradition


BY STEVE ZIMMERMAN
Sports writer

PALM BEACH GARDENS -
Just call him the hit man.
Chris Cameron is carrying
on a family tradition of hitting
on and off the football field
His grandfather, Red, was
captain of the 1946 University
of Miami football team and
his father, Glenn, was a sec-
ond team All-American line-
backer at the University of
Florida. He also played 11
years in the NFL, playing for
the Cincinnati Bengals in the
1982 Super Bowl.
And his older sister, Lind-
sey, played softball at Palm
Beach Gardens High School
before attending UE She
ended her career earlier this
year as the all-time leading
home run hitter for the
Gators.
Cameron, 5-feet, 11-inches
and 175 pounds, plays both
defensive back and wide
receiver for the Panthers. He
likes the physicality of the
defensive side of the ball.
"I like the speed of playing
defense and like laying the big
hit on people," he said. "I don't
mind to hit. I like coming in
full speed and letting them
know I am there.
"You know you made a
good hit by the way that per-
son you hit plays the rest of
the game. After laying a big hit
on them, they are looking for
you when they should be
looking for the ball. That's
when you know you have
done your job."
As a senior, Cameron feels
he needs to lead by example.
"I am playing hard and my
main goal is to play every
play," he said. I think I have

been doing good, but it is not
about me, it is about the
team."
It has been an up and down
season for the Panthers.
"I think the games we lost,
we needed to lose (to Palm
Beach Gardens, Forest Hill
and Glades Central) because
that will keep us working for
the playoffs," he said. "Our big
goal is to win the district and
play Miami-Booker T Wash-
ington again and beat them."
Washington defeated
Dwyer in last year's state foot-
ball playoffs and went on to
lose the state 4A semifinal
game to Seffner Armwood.
All the talk before the sea-
son and during the season
about Washington has not led
the Panthers to look beyond
their regular season schedule.
"I think we lost to good
teams that were not in our
division. I don't think we got
ahead of ourselves," Cameron
said. "I think we have the
potential to win our division
and I think everyone on this
team knows we have some
unfinished business. We have
to work toward that goal."
Dwyer competes in District
14-Class 4A.
Junior quarterback Bradley
Wallace can run or throw the
ball on any given play. So that
forces Cameron, and the
other receivers, to keep close
attention to his moves.
"He knows he has support
around him and when he
makes a mistake we are there
to pick him up and when he
makes a great play, we are
right behind him," he said.
"He is a great playmaker. He
has the ability to make all the
plays."
With Wallace's scrambling
and running ability, Cameron

teammates during practice at Dwyer High School in Palm
Beach Gardens last Thursday.


said it forces the offense to
think on the fly.
"We do a lot of things on the
fly, whether it is throwing a
block for him or releasing and
finding yourself wide open for
a pass," he said. "That hap-
pens because the defense
thinks he is going to take off
and run. So that versatility
works to our advantage."
Cameron hopes to follow in
the family tradition of playing
college athletics.
"Hopefully, I will get to play.
I would love to play college
ball.We will see how the rest of
the season goes," he said. "I
am willing to look anywhere


and make a name for myself."
With programs at South
Florida, Central Florida and
Florida Atlantic cementing
Florida's reputation as a col-
lege football Mecca, Cameron
is excited about the prospect
of playing college football in
Florida.
"That is great when you see
these colleges popping up
and you know you can go any-
where in the state and play
against the best," he said. "You
know that anywhere you go in
the state, you will be playing
against the best athletes and
that is a big part of my deci-
sion."


Injury shelves
Benjamin's
quarterback

It was as mixed bag for
North Palm Beach County
football teams Friday night.
The Benjamin School,


Palm Beach Gardens cam-
pus (2-4), traveled to West
Palm Beach to play King's
Academy and came out on
the short end of the score,
42-0.
But the bigger loss for
Benjamin was that of quar-
terback Conner Kempe on


the first play of the game to
a right shoulder separation
after a 5-yard run. That left
the Buccaneers in the hands
of backup Billy O'Leary, who
was also injured in the
game.

Local runner qualifies for Olympics


Laura Reback
will compete
in triathlon
BY STEVE ZIMMERMAN
Sports writer
NORTH PALM BEACH -
Laura Reback is going to
China.
Actually, she just returned
from there, having traveled
to Beijing to qualify for the
2008 Olympic Games in the
triathlon.
Reback became the first
qualifier for the U.S. three-
woman team.
"The course on which I
qualified is the same one
that will be used in the
Olympics," she said. "I went
there last year to run on a
similar course, but this year
it changed a little bit."
Reback, a North Palm
Beach resident, is now living
and training in Boulder,
Colo., until she leaves for the
Olympics next summer. The
terrain in Colorado is per-
fect for her preparation.
"The environment is great
here. It is easy to just go ride
up the mountain. In Florida,
a mountain is a bridge," she
said. "The only problem
with Colorado is there are
not a lot of pool here. And
we will come back to Florida
this winter for a couple of
months before we go to Aus-
tralia in January until April.
Then we will come back to
Boulder until the games."
Reback has been partici-
Spating in triathlon at the
international level since
1997. Before starting
triathlon, she was a swim-
mer.
"I swam on the college
level," she said. "I swam
while I was growing up and
also participated in some
triathlon while growing up. I
started running first when I
was 8 years old."
Reback said she partici-
pated in fun runs with her
family and started swim-
ming at 12.
"I ran and swam through
high school. When I got to
college, I decided to concen-
trate on swimming to see
what level I could get to. I
knew I could run the rest of


my life."
Reback, 32, has been com-
peting in triathlons for 10
years and said the key to
being a successful triathlete
is consistency.
"There is a certain level
you have to be in all three
events. Ideally, in one of the
three, you have a weapon
that you excel at. Ideally,
that is the run," she said.
"Coming out of swimming
in college, I had an advan-
tage in that. It took me
about 10 years to get the run
to the level I needed it to
be."
Because a big part of
triathlon is biking, one
might think the triathlete at
the mercy of his or her
equipment. Reback said
that is not necessarily true.
"It is definitely about you
and your training. Your skill-
set in cornering and work-
ing with others on the bike is
very important," she said.
"The equipment is not that
important, except that you
do want a comfortable ride."
Reback said it took her
until the last couple of years
to find a bike she is happy
with. She just found a com-
fortable bike saddle (seat)
this year.
She talked about the
Olympic triathlon course.
"It is actually quite hilly


for the bike and run, but
they are shorter hills and
more power-oriented hills,"
she said. "I like the course
and think it will be a lot of
fun to race the best in the
world there."
She set a goal to qualify as
early as she could.
"That was nice. It was a
goal we set three years ago
when we were setting up our
training," she said. "I work
closely with my husband.
He runs triathlon and com-
petes for Australia."
Having her husband as
her coach is a definite plus.
"We both have our
strengths and weaknesses
and they are different. It
helps to keep us both on
track and make sure we both
have the full package," she
said, "It has worked well for
us the past seven years and
we have really taken that on
in the last five years."
Reback said her husband
will also attempt to qualify
for the Olympics in
triathlon. But, he will do so
for the Australian team, as
he is not a U.S. citizen.
Reback said she knows
her Olympic competition
from racing against them
during the season.
"I know what their
strengths and weaknesses
are, and so you put that in


your calculations for train-
ing," she said. 'As long as I
stay healthy, I have as good a
chance as anyone to be on
top of the podium."
In distance running, the
African nations excel. In
triathlon, the Australians,
New Zealanders and Ameri-
cans excel, according to
Reback.
"The Australians and New
Zealanders, because they
grow up in a beach culture,
seem to lead the way. Or, it
may be that triathlon is
more accepted over the past
10-15 years," she said. "But
lately, the U.S. guys and girls
have done well."

PALM BEACH GARDENS
S- Emmanuel Cook has
made a stirring comeback.
Early this football season,
he was kicked off the Uni-
' versity of South Carolina
-football team and out of
school after an Aug. 23
arrest.
Cook was arrested and
Charge with possession of a
S firearm by someone under
21 by USC police and
Immediately suspended
from the team and the
school.
Once Cook hired an attor-
ney, he set out to clear his
name by telling authorities
the gun was not his. A judge
in Columbia ruled there
was not enough evidence
for the case to proceed to a
grand jury.
It was when a judge dis-
missed the charge on Sept.
28, that he was reinstated to
school and the team.
But he couldn't play right
away as he suffered an
appendicitis attack and had
to have it removed.
But he is healthy now and
has reclaimed his starting
position in the defensive
backfield.
"With the whole situation
I have had this year, I


thought my career might be
over," Cook .aid. "Iwas anx-
ious to get back out there
and play and it felt great to
get out there in front of our
home crowd."
Cook, a true sophomore,
is a big hitter on defense.
"That was my game in
high school," he said. "I
have been able to carry it on
into college."
He said this is a good
team that is well balanced.
"We have great balance
on both sides of the ball,"
he said. "Everybody is
pushing each other and we
have a goal to reach, which
is winning the Southeastern
Conference champi-
onship."
South Carolina recently
played and lost to the No. 1
team in the nation,
Louisiana State University.
Cook said he thought the
Gamecocks could have won
that game.
"They have the team to
win the national champi-
onship," he said. "But I
don't know if they are the
best team right now. We had
our chances, and we didn't
capitalize on our chances.
We had some dropped
passes and missed field
goals in that game."
Cook said he set a goal for

Dwyer wins
tight game
Palm Beach Gardens'
William T. Dwyer (4-2) was a
winner in a tight, closely-
contested battle with Palm
Beach Lakes, 9-7.
Running back Donald
Russell led the Panthers
offense with 139 yards in 31
carries. Just before halftime,
the Panthers had an 8-yard
touchdown run called back
because of a penalty. But
Daniel Riddle connected on
his second of three field
goals to give Dwyer a 6-0
lead.
Lakes' Jacquan Hogan
returned the kickoff 97 yards
for a touchdown and the
extra point gave Lakes a 7-6
lead. A 27-yard field goal by
Riddle in the third quarter
ended the scoring and gave
Dwyer its 9-7 win.
Palm Beach Gardens High
School (3-3) easily defeated
winless Wellington in a
game in West Palm Beach,
28-0, scoring four first half
touchdowns.
Running back josh Shep-
pard led the Gators with 168
rushing yards and two


touchdowns on eight car-
ries. The Gators defense
held the Wolverines' offense
to just 94 total yards in the
game.
Jupiter Christian School
continued its winning ways
with a 19-9 win over John
Carroll in Fort Pierce.
It was the third home-
coming that the Eagles have
ruined this season. A bal-
anced offense helped
Jupiter Christian to the vic-
tory.
Quarterback Marshyl
Rothman passed for 109
yards and two touchdowns,
while running back Austin
Lewis rushed for 109 yards
and one touchdown. The
Eagles are now 5-1 on the
season.
SJupiter High School saw
its homecoming ruined by
Lake Worth, 23-13.
The Warriors (3-3) dug
themselves a big hole by
falling behind 23-0 at the
end of three quarters.
Jupiter made the final
score respectable by scoring
twice in the fourth quarter
on two touchdown passes,
by Cobie Graham to
Jonathan Hatcher of 20 and
13 yards, respectively.

himself to lead the team in
tackles this season. Hitting
is a big part of his game. He
is 5-feet, 9-inches tall and
210 pounds and is majoring
in retail management.
"A big hit gets me excited
and the crowd excited," he
said. "When you hit some-
body like that, it also excites
the team and gets them
fired up."
He credits the coaching
staff at South Carolina for
getting him ready for a
physical game.
"I don't do anything spe-
cial before the game. Our
coaches work us out before
the game," he said. "The
coaches work us out hard."
Cook said the adversity he
experienced before and at
the start of the season has
made him appreciate what
he has.
"I could have been kicked
out of school," he'said. "But,
being in school, playing and
winning helps right now.
There were a lot of people
who wanted to be in my
shoes, playing college foot-
ball. I could have lost all
that and I really see how
lucky I am."
Going to play football at
South Carolina was an easy
decision for Cook once he
heard from Coach Steve
Spurrier.
"Coach Spurrier gave me
a call my junior year and
then, in the spring of my
senior year, I got the offer,"
he said. "I talked with my
coaches and it was my


birthday, so it was a good
time. I took a visit to the
school and had a great time
and decided to come to
South Carolina."
Cook's mother, Paulette,
played a big role in helping
him recover from his arrest
and illness.
"My mom is everything to
me. She has been with me
ever since I started playing
Pop Warner football," he
said. "She was at every game
in high school, but has not
been able to get to every
game at South Carolina. She
did get up to Gainesville for
the Florida game.
"When I got into my situ-
ation, she called me up and
she told me she understood.
She supported me every
step of the way and that is
why I love her so much."
Cook added that she has
that look that mother's have
that lets him know when
she is not happy with him.
At Gardens, Cook was a
leader on and off the field.
He rushed for 2,027 yards
and 27 touchdowns as a
senior. He led his team to
the Class 6A state title as a
senior, marking the first
state championship in
school history.
Cook rushed for 243 yards
and four touchdowns in the
state title game. He was rec-
ognized as the Lou Groza
Award Palm Beach County
Player of the Year.
He said he feared he had
thrown away his college
football opportunity.

"When it first happened I
felt it was all over," he said.
"That was my first time ever
getting into trouble, so I
didn't know what was going
on.
Cook said his faith, as well
as his resolve to be success-
ful, is stronger for having
gone through the arrest.
"I am in the church more
and feel like I put a lot of
faith in God. I had been
doing that, but it is a lot
stronger now."
The support of his team-
mates helped Cook get
through those tough times.
"They gave me a lot sup-
port. My best friend,
Kendrick Ellis, (a defensive
tackle for the Gamecocks
from John I. Leonard High
School in West Palm Beach)
came to talk with me when I
got released," he said.
