New owner bringing life back to unfinished Eden

condo project

By Dale M. King

thing's happening at the
old Eden condomini-
um complex site near
downtown Boca Raton
that hasn't happened in
a long time.
Construction crews and
heavy equipment are at
work for the first time in
years while the former
owner revised plans,
sought new financing
and complained about
a bevy of problems that
kept him from complet-
ing the development.

Not so any more. Pride-
rock Capital Partners, a
West Palm Beach com-
pany that specializes in
reviving troubled mul-
ti-family projects, has
purchased the concrete
eyesore from the previ-
ous owner, Ceebraid-
Signal Corp., for a fi-
gure said to be in the
mid to upper $20 mil-
lion range.
Workmen moved in al-
most immediately and
began transforming the
four-building monstros-
ity into a work in pro-
gress. See Eden page 5

Downtown Boca Library

to be done by 2012, says

city manager Ahnell

By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON- Boca Raton
should have a new down-
town library by January of
2012, "perhaps sooner,"
City Manager Leif Ahnell
told members of the Fed-
eration of Boca Raton Hom-
eowners Associations.
He said the city is taking a
different planning approach
to that facility, one aimed
at avoiding the problems
that beset construction of
the Spanish River Library,
which, while it is open for
business, is still mired in
Rather than just hire the
low bidder, as it did with
the Spanish River facility,
Ahnell said, Boca city offi-
cials have retained Kaufman
Lynn contractors to build
the new library. He said the
city has filed a Request for
Proposals (RFP) to select an
architect who will work with
Kaufman Lynn to make the
new building happen.
Boca Raton has had a tough
go with both library pro-
jects. Ahnell said a bond
issue approved in 2001 set
aside $19.8 million to build
a library on the west side of
the city and a new library

The so-called western libra-
ry, now known as the Span-
ish River Library, began
rising on a lot on Spanish
River Boulevard a year or so
after the bond issue passed.
But the city and the contrac-
tor quickly hit a glitch over
construction and materials
cost, one that ended up in
court and halted construc-
tion for more than a year.
Eventually, the city hired
Kaufman Lynn to complete
the library, but lawsuits
from the original contractor
and from the city against the
contractor and its insurance
company are still pending.
In the meantime, the city
entered into a land si ap"
with GladesRox Corp.
through which it acquired
the former Causeway Lum-
ber Yard site on NW Second
Avenue for the new down-
town library. But financial
cutbacks forced Boca to
delay construction, despite
demands from library sup-
porters who tried to hold the
city's feet to the fire to get
the facility build.
Coincidentally, when Boca
finally reached a point whe-
re it could move ahead with
the new library, questions
began to emerge about the
location. Some officials felt

it should go downtown as
a catalyst for center city re-
vival. Some felt it should
be moved into the former
International Museum of
Cartoon Art, which is being
transformed into a cultural
arts center.
Even now, Ahnell said, there's
a question about where the
library will be located. The
Number 1 plan is to gut the
existing library at 200 NW
Second Ave. and rebuild a
larger facility on the site. In
the process, said Ahnell, the
library would grow from its
current 22,000 square feet to
between 40,000 and 45,000
square feet.
Building on the Causeway
site is still an option, said
the city manager. The final
decision, he said, "will be
driven by what's going on
in Tallahassee or Washing-
ton, D.C." The building on
the Causeway site would
measure between 30,000 to
35,000 square feet. Of the
$19.8 million bond money
from 2001, he said, the city
still has $9.8 million for
construction of the down-
town library building. It has
also allocated $2.5 million
from the general fund to
stock and staff it.
In the design of the library,
he said, the city will take into
consideration the increasing
use of electronic devices ra-
ther than books. He said the
new building will have "flex
space for the transition."
Ahnell cited Kaufman Lynn
as a dependable contractor
who not only finished build-
ing the Spanish River Li-
brary, but also revamped the
6500 Building which houses
the Fire Administration and
other offices, and also con-
structed two fire stations.

FAU researcher gets $1.6M

to fix age-related eye ills

BOCA RATON- Florida A-
tlantic University researcher,
Dr. Marc Kantorow, profes-
sor of biomedical sciences in
the Charles E. Schmidt Col-
lege of Biomedical Science,
has received an RO1 grant
renewal of $1.6 million from
the National Institutes of
Health (NIH) to investigate
natural eye repair systems
that could be used to treat
age-related eye diseases.
With this grant, Kantorow
and his colleagues will seek
to understand why an impor-
tant eye lens protein needed
for vision is damaged by a-
ging and how naturally oc-
curring repair proteins can
restore it.
Loss of the function of
these proteins, called mo-
lecular chaperones, causes
age-related cataracts and is
believed to be involved in a
multitude of diseases rang-
ing from age-related macu-
lar degeneration to Alzheim-
er's disease.
Kantorow and his colleagues
have discovered that these
molecular chaperones lose
their activity during the ag-
ing process, but that a class
of repair enzymes called
methionine sulfoxide reduc-
tases (MsrA) can repair them
and restore their activity.
"MsrA is essential for ocu-
lar defense against oxidative
stress, viability and defense
against cataract formation,"
said Kantorow. "We have
discovered that MsrA main-
tains the function of molecu-
lar chaperones in the eye,
which when damaged, cause
ocular diseases.
Information gained from this
research may have the po-
tential to discover the events
that cause age-related dis-
ease and also provide clues
into the development of trea-
tment therapies for these di-
seases by manipulating the

levels and activities of the
naturally occurring eye re-
pair systems.
Kantorow's research holds
promise to find alternative
treatments for two of the
most prevalent ocular dis-
eases that afflict so many
worldwide cataracts and
age-related macular degen-
eration (AMD).
Cataracts are a clouding of
the lens in the eye that af-
fects vision. Most cataracts
are related to aging and are
common in older people.
More than half of all Ameri-
cans either have a cataract or
have had cataract surgery by
the age of 80.
AMD is a disease associated
with aging that gradually
destroys sharp, central vi-
sion which is needed for see-

ing objects clearly and for
common daily tasks such as
reading and driving. AMD
affects the macula, the part
of the eye that allows you to
see fine detail.
"This discovery gives us in-
sight into how increasing the
levels and activities of these
eye proteins could be used
to treat and prevent cataracts
and AMD, said Kantorow.
:"It also gives us hope that
therapies for these diseases
can be developed using na-
tural protective and repair
Currently, the only therapy
for the treatment of cataracts
is surgery, and to date, no
cures exist for the majority
of age-related macular de-
generation cases.

ment of Teaching (FIAT), a
program at Florida Atlantic
University, has been named
a merit finalist for the 2009
Mutual of America Com-
munity Partnership Award
FIAT is the first educational
program within a univer-
sity setting to be recognized
with the CPA. To date, 140
partnerships throughout the
United States have been
recognized by the award
program. A gift of $15,000
from Mutual of America
to FAU accompanies this
"We could not have selected
a better example of the spirit
of the award," said Thomas
Gilliam, chairman of and
chief executive officer of
Mutual of America Founda-
tion. "The FIAT program is
an inspiring model of what
can be done to establish a
working partnership and
what such collaboration can

of Indianapolis, Indiana, I
feel a sense of pride in all
that FIAT has accomplished
for our region."

Boca city officials want to slam the door on 'pill mills'

By Dale M. King
BOCA RATON The city of
Boca Raton has an ordinance
in the pipeline designed to
crush so-called "pill mills."
The proposal, which has al-
ready been the subject of
one public hearing, will be
presented at a second public
forum before a vote is taken,
Mayor Susan Whelchel said
at a recent City Council me-
No date has been set for the
second hearing.
A "pill mill," as defined by
Police Chief Dan Alexander,
is a facility which dispenses
prescription narcotics usu-
ally pain killers on-site.
"These 'pill mills' take the
form of doctor's offices, pain
clinics and health care facili-
ties," the chief said in a pre-

sentation before the council.
On-site distribution clinics
have proliferated lately, cau-
sing a considerable number
of problems for police and
forcing officers to spend
many additional hours dea-
ling with behavior of pill
mill "customers" and deaths
caused by overdoses.
He noted that Florida does
not have a state law banning
these on-site distribution
centers. As a result, people
travel here from states that
do have prohibitions among
them, Kentucky, Tennessee,
North Carolina, Ohio and
West Virginia.
City Attorney Diana Grub
Frieser said the council will
hold the proposed ordinance
in abeyance until it deter-
mines if the state legislature

plans to take action on this is-
sue during the 2010 session,
which just recently opened.
As currently written, the pro-
posed ordinance would pro-
hibit on-site dispensing of pre-
scription drugs in medical,
business and professional
offices except under special
circumstances. Hospitals,
among other similar loca-
tions, would be exempt, said
City Manager Leif Ahnell.
In Florida, where there is
no state ban on the distribu-
tion sites, "people can eas-
ily obtain large quantities of
prescription drugs following
a simple strategy," said Al-
exander. He said so-called
p., ii'.,ls" arrive at a facility
complaining of a particular
ailment. They may even
bring an X-ray or MRI-

usually an image has been
passed from one person to
The intent of the Boca pro-
posal is to crack down on
pain clinics that not only as-
sess and diagnose patients,
but also give 30-day supplies
of pain medication to anyone
walking in off the street.
Alexander said the ordinan-
ce is not expected to affect
legitimate pain-managment
centers that require patients
to fill prescriptions at a phar-
"The effects of unrestricted
prescription drug availabi-
lity are noticeable in the lo-
cal area," said the chief. "In
2008, Palm Beach County
experienced more than 300
deaths as a result of pres-
cription drug overdoses.

From 2004 to 2008, the ci-
ty of Boca Raton overdose
deaths grew by 700 percent.
In 2009, we committed 158
hours to prescription drug-
related death investigations "
Between 2005 and 2009, he
said, the number of calls for
services in Boca Raton in-
volving prescription drugs
increased by more than 1,000
percent. These incidents in-
cluded deaths, Baker acts,
burglaries, weapons, child
abuse, domestic violence,
DUI, medical emergencies,
thefts, possession of con-
trolled substance, sexual
battery, simple battery and
robbery." In 2009, he said,
Boca police spent 672 hours
on prescription drug-related
calls and 352 hours of work
in which they encountered

people generally trom out-
of-state, "primarily located
around drug dispensing busi-
nesses." He said the Florida
Legislature in 2009 passed a
law to establish a statewide
database to curtail so-called
"doctor shopping" and moni-
tor the dispensing of pre-
scription drugs. "Unfortu-
nately," he said, "no funding
was identified for this project
and it still has not been estab-

Financial picture getting brighter at

Boca Community Hospital.

By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON It wasn't
very long ago that Boca
Raton Community Hospital
was so mired in red ink that
it canceled plans to build a
new hospital, fired its former
CEO and hired a company
whose goal is to save trou-
bled medical centers.
The moves have apparently
worked. BRCH reported its
losses have dropped and pa-
tient utilization is up.
Perhaps the best news came
just a few days ago when
Fitch Ratings affirmed the
hospital's bond rating at
an investment grade BBB-
while concurrently upgrad-

ing its ratings out-
look from negative to
"We were gratified to
see that Fitch has rec-
ognized the progress
our hospital is mak-
ing in such a mate-
rial way," said Jerry J.
Fedele, president and
CEO of BRCH. "The out-
look upgrade is an especially
significant reflection of our
remarkable turnaround."
In issuing its rating, Fitch
noted a number of positive
developments that factored
into its rating rationale.
These included:
* Improving volumes.
* The growth of the hospi-
tal's heart program and its
2010 number one ranking in
Florida for cardiac surgery
and number three ranking
for overall cardiac care by
* The clinical and financial
success of BRCH's cancer
program and its state-of-the-
art facility.

* The development of a pri-
mary care network.
* Nursing staff stability.
* Substantial improvement
in the revenue cycle.
* Philanthropic support.
Fitch said that as a result of
these and other initiatives,
the hospital's operating in-
come has improved signifi-
cantly through the first seven
months of fiscal 2010.
Fitch noted that BRCH's
liquidity position lessened
in fiscal 2007. Fedele, who
came to the hospital in Oc-
tober of 2008, explained that
a significant portion of this
occurred during 2007 and
Recent decreases were plan-
ned and were a result of
positive actions taken by
the hospital including pay-
ment in full of $29.2 million
in outstanding debt and $7.5
million in routine capital ex-

downtown, everyone will do
well," she said.

supports the logo and tag-
line. They also approved a
motion urging the closing
time for downtown establi-
shments serving alcoholic
beverages be extended from
2 to 3 a.m. on weekends,

holidays and at times of spe-
cial events to attract people
in their 20s and 30s who
are currently not being well
served in the downtown.
When she spoke later to the
CRA, Kaye said the propo-
sed logo could be used on
signs facing traffic coming
into and leaving the city,

on posters, on a website and
on T-shirts and beach towels.

The City Council was noti-
fied at a recent meeting that
the closing on the property
has already taken place.
Council members were also
told that most of the 27 own-
ers who had purchased units
in the completed Eden com-
plex were being bought out
at the price they had paid for
the condos.
The law firm that structured
the deal for the new owners,
said Priderock paid cash to
acquire all but two of the
248 units in the building lo-
cated just off Palmetto Park
Road, across the street from
Boca Raton City Hall.
An official from Priderock
said Eden, which will be
renamed Heritage, will be
a luxury apartment rental
Ceebraid-Signal managed to
finish one of the four buil-
dings it originally planned
when the proposal was ap-
proved in 2002. A second
building was nearly finished,

but the other two have stood
as concrete skeletons, win-
dows covered with plywood
and planks blocking the ter-
races where fancy fencing
had been planned.
Eden was originally en-
visioned as a luxury condo
complex close to the down-
town and beaches. It was
advertised on an elaborate
website that promoted the
assets of buying at Eden.
But there was soon trouble
in Eden, according to of-
ficials who have appeared
before the City Council on
a number of occasions ei-
ther to get extensions, to talk
about the possibility of new
funding or to change plans
for the development.
The original morphing of E-
den would have changed it
into an assisted living proj-
ect called Pearl. When that
didn't work, another plan
was tossed on the table one
that would have turned the
condos into luxury apart-

Charles Siemon, attorney for
Eden, once told the council
that the project was at the
vortex of a "perfect storm"
of troubles, including back
to back to back hurricanes,
the loss of a contractor, in-
ability to get a new contrac-
tor and financial troubles.
In September 2007, the City
Council held a special meet-
ing and decided, begrud-
gingly, to issue a final two-
year extension of permits.
But Ceebraid-Signal was
told not to come back for o-
ther extensions.
But by 2009, little, if any,
new work was done. The
council voted last year to
cancel the building permits,
but the developer hung on,
citing Senate Bill 360, a me-
asure that would have given
Eden and other troubled
building projects an auto-
matic two-year extension
because of the stumbling
Ironically, word that a buyer
had come forward to buy Eden
came to the City Council as
a mystery. The purchaser
asked not to be identified. A
confidentiality agreement
between Ceebraid-Signal
Corp. and the potential buy-
er kept secret the terms of
the purchase.
Both parties asked the city
to reinstate building permits

Council members felt hamstrung by a lack of information, but went forward, hoping the new
buyer could finish the development. They received a measure of reassurance from the city
manager and city attorney who met the buyer last fall and said the firm was an experienced
developer with no connections to Ceebraid.
The buyer had financing to finish the project and planned to convert the condominiums into
luxury rentals, they said.
So the council went ahead, reinstated the building permits and returned Ceebraid's $750,000
construction bond. Ceebraid said it would drop its two lawsuits against the city. And the
buyer would replace the $750,000 bond and move forward with construction.
As Mayor Susan Whelchel said at the time, "People will be better off with a new owner who
will continue with construction rather than being left with the current owner and nothing

Six Lynn students, staff who died in Haiti

'have earned their place in heaven'

By Dale M. King
BOCA RATON- The gray
and rainy day March 12 re-
flected the somber mood
as hundreds gathered on
the Lynn University cam-
pus to remember and honor
the lives of four students
and two faculty members
who died following the Jan.
12 earthquake in Port-au-
Prince, Haiti.
They were part of a group of
14 taking part in a humani-
tarian class called the "Jour-
ney of Hope" to Haiti.
Joining students, faculty,
staff and friends for the ser-
vice were the families of
the eight returning students
and the families of those
who were lost: Dr. Richard

Bruno, an assistant profes-
sor in the College of Liberal
Education; Dr. Patrick Hart-
wick, dean of the Donald E.
and Helen L. Ross College
of Education; and students
Stefanie Crispinelli, Britney
Gengel, Christine Gianacaci
and Courtney Hayes.
The Lynn Conservatory of
Music's Philharmonia Or-
chestra played several pieces
throughout the 90-minute
service, including "Hymn to
the Fallen," which was set
to a presentation of images
that filled two large screens
at the front of the de Hoernle
Sports and Cultural Center.
As student PJ. Tyska, one
of the eight students who
returned from the trip, said

prior to reading a poem he
wrote in tribute to the Jour-
ney of Hope, "You will see
what I and others experi-
enced: six people living
their lives to the fullest with
meaning and purpose. And
you will know that they did
not lose their lives; they
gave them doing what they
loved and believed in."
In his remarks, Lynn Uni-
versity President Kevin M.
Ross said, "They spent their
last hours on earth serving
one of the poorest nations
in the world, and now they
are smiling down on us from
the land of riches above.
They have earned their place
in heaven, and in all of our

He noted that the univer-
sity is planning a perma-
nent place of remembrance
on campus and re-affirmed
Lynn's commitment to inter-
national education and ser-
vice by announcing a new
scholarship fund in their
honor. The Lynn University
Global Citizen Scholarship
Memorial Fund will enable
students to experience edu-
cational and service oppor-
tunities focusing on commu-
nities and cultures in need
at the international, national
and local levels.
"The six members of our uni-
versity family did not live,
nor die, in vain," President
Ross said. "Their dedica-
tion to service changed their
lives, and it changed all of
our lives. And although they
are not physically here, they
will forever be alive in our
culture, our history and our
heritage. And they will be
present in every good deed
done around the world "

President Ross also announced the creation of a Lynn Uni-
versity Memorial Village in Haiti. The village will include
Food for the Poor brightly painted, double-concrete homes,
an artesian well and a community center accommodating a
health clinic, community meetings and adult education and
vocational training.

By Rick Warren

Trusting God when I don't understand

"Trust in the Lord with all
your heart and lean not on
your own understanding; in
all your ways acknowledge
him, and he will make your
paths straight. Proverbs
3:5-6 .ii)
When the children of Israel
were finally set
free from Egypt
after 400 years of
slavery, they star-
ted marching out
to freedom and
the first thing they
came to was the
Red Sea. There
were impassable Pr. Rick
mountain ranges on two si-
des of them, the sea in front
of them.
Behind them, in hot pur-
suit, was the Egyptian army
because the Pharaoh had
changed his mind about let-
ting them go. The path be-
fore the Israelites looked like
a dead end.
But God knew exactly what

He wanted to do. He had not
made a mistake. He could
see what they could not
see. He opened the Red Sea
and they walked through to
safety. Years later, the Isra-
elites looked back and sang,
"Your road led by a pathway
:h,1,. ;lh the sea -
a pathway no one
knew was there!"
(Psalm 77:19 LB).
You may be facing a
dead end right now
financial, emoti-
onal, relational but
God can see a path
Warren that you don't know
about. If you will trust God
and keep on moving in faith,
even when you don't see a
way, He will make a way.
It will become more under-
standable as you head down
the path he sets before you,
but understanding is not a
requirement for you to start
down the path. Proverbs 4:18
says, "The path of the righ-

teous is like the first gleam
of dawn, shining brighter till
the full light of day" ii).
One day you will stand in
the full light of eternity and
view the big picture. You'll
see God's purpose behind
the path He specifically cho-
se for you.
What do I do in the mean-
time? You do what Proverbs
3 says: "Trust in the Lord
with all your heart and lean
not on your own understand-
ing; in all your ways ac-
knowledge him, and he will
make your paths straight. "
What does He mean "don't
lean on your own under-
standing"? You don't need to
try to figure it out. In truth,
you're not going to under-
stand most of the things that
happen in your life until you
get to heaven.
Be patient. God knows what
He's doing. God knows
what's best for you. He can
see the end result. You can't.

All those problems, heart-
aches, difficulties and delays
- all the things that make you
ask "why" one day it will
all be clear in the light of
God's love.
But for now, we're learning
to trust God.

your own body

fat can restore

youthful look

Dear Dr. Man, As I appro-
ach my mid-40s, I have no-
ticed that my cheeks
no longer have the
plumpness they had
when I was younger
I feel that this loss
of definition makes
me look older than I
really am. Does this
mean I'm Dr. Da
a candidate for plastic sur-
gery, or are there other
methods that can be used to
restore a youthful look?

Answer: You are actually a
candidate for facial rejuve-
nation that uses your own
body fat. The procedure is
called "Fat Transfer" and
is considered the "Golden
Standard" since it uses your
own body's materials to
your benefit.
You are right about age af-
fecting facial structure.
Cheeks are often associated
with youthful beauty and
health. They provide balan-
ce and help to fill out the
middle portion of the face.
I often ask patients to bring
in a picture of themselves
in their 30s and 40s. In our
youth, our cheeks are ful-
ler. As we age, the fat pads
that fill out our cheeks and
give them their plumpness,
change position and fall.
They can even flatten out
and disappear, giving the
face a caved-in or sunken
appearance. Once this hap-
pens, the supportive or con-
nective tissue beneath the
skin erodes and the face
becomes thin and flat with
little or no definition.
Fat cells form the basic re-
quirements of the secret of
all living tissue. They con-
tain our own collagen, elas-
tin fibers, growth factors,
(the energy factory cells that


help us live longer), our own
hormones, and stem cells-
the beginning of
all our basic cells
that continue to
divide and give us
replacement cells.)
Such a wonderful
combination of our
own living 'formu-
iel Man la' that can be used
again, and again.
Our fat can be stored in a
frozen state, reprocessed
and reinjected as frequently
as necessary until we have
're-built' various parts of
our face and body, such
areas as the chest, breasts,
buttocks, and legs.
Using your own body fat
has important advantages. It
is your own material and is
therefore readily available.
Also, body fat from the ab-
domen offers a rich supply
of rejuvenating hormones.
It also contains collagen and
your own body's stem cells
which are very useful for
correcting aging of the face
and loss of volume in the
cheeks, brows and lips and
underneath the jaw line.
For this procedure, body fat
is extracted from the abdo-
men and reinjected into the
cheeks, jaw line, lips, brows
or areas around the eyes. It
is also useful in smoothen-
ing deep lines such as those
around the mouth or the
deep creases of the nasola-
bial folds or "smile lines."
Fat is good. Injected fat is
long-lasting, 60% for a life-
time, although touch-ups in
the future can further en-
hance the results that have
already obtained. Body fat is
easily injected and provides
a natural look. Patients who
have had this procedure re-
port being very pleased with
the results.

Dr Daniel Man is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has dedi-
cated his life s work to helping people look younger and improve
their appearance through cosmetic surgery. He is a noted author
artist, inventor and educator Dr Man has been featured on major
television networks as well as national and local magazines and
newspapers for his work as both a plastic surgeon and an artist.
Dr Man has a private practice in Boca Raton.

weighty, to be organized veral lives, whether for bet-

ter or for worse. Thus, any
potential change needs to be
well planned. Thomas Alva
Edison in his day, reasoned:
"If you are doing anything
the way you did twenty
years ago, there is a better
way." Change to be signifi-
cant must furnish a better
way. Genuine improvement
is to be readily noticed, in
contrast to what was before!
Every plan made requires a
broader picture taken into
account. Calendars have to
be checked, distances from
one location to the next have
to be measured, time alot-
ted for what is to occur has
to be determined, the avail-
ability of people involved in
a proposed encounter needs
to be ascertained, or even a

leisure meeting should be re-
alistically considered. Many
of the changes people make
are external to them; they
are effected in order to im-
prove conditions for better
productivity or for increased
effectiveness, and bring
comfort in varied situations.
Nevertheless, "outer chan-
ges alone cannot make us
happy," as Sir John Marks
Templeton reflected.
For this reason, most impor-
tantly, vital changes need
to occur within the indivi-
dual. Often, these are the
most necessary and urgent,
since it is out of minds and
hearts that everything one
does originates. These are
more difficult as they're
also most neglected. But

personal changes are truly
essential since "poorly-di-
rected efforts can rob us of
vital energy" among many
other potential, adverse
consequences. Important
as change is, it is never fi-
nal, necessarily. Sometimes,
sooner than one might ex-
pect, one may need to mod-
ify a previous change into
something better and more
effective. This needs to be
an individual's personal de-
cision: Improve your life
each new day, change for the
better every day. Respond
to the promptings of God to
take new, constructive steps
forward in continual self-
betterment. Changed lives
require constant renewal!
Change, just for the sake of

change, will miss the mark;
it falls short of what it can
genuinely provide and pro-
mote, namely, to advance
self while impacting one's
milieu and, most of all, doing
all things with excellence to
glorify the Creator!

Chilly air can't squelch warmth, musical brilliance of Ren e

For those lucky enough
to be in the presence
of world famous Soprano
Rende Fleming, it was a
night of cold temperatures
and warm hearts.
As part of the 2010 Festival
of the Arts BOCA in Mizner
Park we bore witness to a
woman who has studied the
classic arias of great com-
posers and is capable of
making them her own.
In a world of bytes and
strokes, clamor and calam-
ity, it is refreshing and up-
lifting to be in the presence
of musical genius. And what
made it even more exciting
was her down-to-earth ban-
ter hence the reason Flem-
ing has been called "The
Diva Next Door."
"They liked strong women
in those days," she said, re-
ferring to a piece by Rossi-
ni, adding, "There is a lot of
rejection in the first half."
It was hardly contagious
though. Not many of us felt
rejected as we listened to
one of the greatest operatic
voices on the planet. Her
enthusiasm was contagious

(albeit in the atypical South
Florida freeze) and her mu-
sical range was startling. As
she sang the brilliant music
of Richard Strauss and Puc-
cini (in the second half) her
voice seemed to crystallize
in the cool crisp air, lifting
us up toward the cosmos
while dropping earthly kiss-
es on our heads.
For opera lovers it was a
divine experience, for mu-
sic lovers it was equally as
stellar. Perhaps that is the
reason we love music so
much it lifts us up above
the petty (health insurance
travails and budget debates)
and brings us to a place of
serenity and hope.
While some hovered in their
fur coats and woolen shawls,
it was Fleming who seemed
to weather the weather with
elan in an emerald green
gown with deep square
neckline. She told us that
Bellini's "Casta Diva" from
Norma was a prayer to the
moon with a wish for peace,
and let us in on her excite-
ment to be in Mizner Park,
"I love to do this in these

open spaces."
After Strauss she moved on
to (a favorite) La Boheme.
She sang "Donde lieta usci"
from Puccini and two arias
from La Boheme by Rug-
gero Leoncavallo.
Fleming also told us that
some of her songs were

about love and that "I have
experience in that."
It was evident that Fleming
(who has wonthree Grammy
Awards) knows a lot about a
lot of things (not just love).
Her voice has been honed
by years of study and a vir-
tuoso quality that propels

genius to tiny particles of
musical enlightenment.
Fleming has performed in
all types of venues (and
all genres of music) inclu-
ding Sesame Street, Garri-
son Keillor's Prairie Home
Companion, at The Obama
Inaugural Celebration at the
Lincoln Memorial and at
more opera houses than you
can count on your fingers
(The Met in New York is
her oyster).
The second in command on
Saturday night at the Festi-
val of the Arts BOCA was
the illustrious (and amaz-
ingly talented) Russian Na-
tional Orchestra conducted
by Patrick Summers.
Fleming showed us another
side of her musical reper-
toire by performing "Hello,
Young Lovers" from The
King and I and "You'll
Never Walk Alone" from
Carousel. Toward the end of
the concert she casually an-
nounced, "There's no Diva
stuff here, I'm just going to
keep on going.
And going she did. She sang
"I Feel Pretty" from West


Side Story (Maria would
have been proud) and ended
with another West Side Sto-
ry classic, "Somewhere."
We all knew we were some-
where and we all knew we
had spent a few hours with a
woman of rare musical tal-
ent (and humility). That was
confirmed after the concert
when Fleming showed up
in the guest tent to meet and
greet her fans (and suppor-
ters), sign autographs and
pose for photos with awe-
struck guests.
Fleming was gracious, ap-
proachable and the perfect
virtuoso to honor the clas-
sics of musical greatness.
And for that we were grate-

Festival of the Arts Boca

By Diane Feen
We were dazzled and awed
by the talented musicians
and authors who came to
Mizner Park for the fourth
Annual Festival of the Arts
BOCA. The greatest of the
great came to showcase their
talent and take our breath
One of the world's most
celebrated sopranos, Renee
Fleming, dazzled us with
her sense of humor and
depth-defying voice. She ex-
pressed her love of outdoor
concert venues (even though
the temperatures dipped to a
chilly 48 degrees) and drew
us into the inner sanctum of
her operatic genius.
Albert Sonnenfeld, gour
mand historian and author
of books on food and its
historical significance gave
a lecture on "Sex, Food and
Videotape." Sonnenfeld is
a master mimic and former
comparative literature pro-
fessor with a comedic bent.
The Russian National Or-
chestra captivated our souls
by accompanying Fle-
ming, Kelley O'Connor,
Conrad Tao, Eldar and the
American Ballet Theatre
principal dancers Maxim
Beloserkovsky and Irina
Dvorovenko. In mid-week
we saw the Russian classic
film by Alexander Nevsky
on a giant screen while be-
ing serenaded by the Russian
National Orchestra (they
played the score to the mov-
ie). It was a brilliant night of

synchronicity and serenity.
The fierce wind added an
ominous sense that the film
and music were one.
Doris Kearns Goodwin also
titillated (and entertained
us) with historical reference
points from her experiences
as biographer, historian and
author of novels on LBJ,
Abraham Lincoln, The Fitz-
gerald', the Kennedys and
Franklin and Eleanor Roos-
evelt. We sat raptly on the
edge of our seats listening
to tales and anecdotes about
our most celebrated lead-
ers of the past. Who ever
thought that presidential his-
tory could be so interesting
and quirky? We know now
that it is, thanks to Keams
Keams Goodwin intervie-
wed her husband Richard
Goodwin in a sold-out crowd
at the new Cultural Arts Cen-
ter in Mizner Park (the site
of the old Cartoon Museum).
We heard the inside scoop on
Richard Goodwin's relation-
ship with John and Bobby
Kennedy and heard excerpts
of his magnificent speech for
LBJ for civil rights legisla-
tion. We also had a chuckle
when Richard told us that
LBJ threatened to draft him
if he quit his job as speech
writer and special assistant
(it was a joke Goodwin was
not drafted).
New York Times columnist
and author David Brooks
also wowed the crowd with
his take on the current affairs

of state and Noel Riley Fitch brought Julia Child to life in her
talk about the goddess of food. Riley Fitch, the only autho-
rized biographer of Child, is an award winning biographer
and historian.
It was a week to marvel and learn. It was also a week to laugh
and luxuriate in books, music, orchestral excellence and lit-
erary fodder. And it is a blessing to have had all this top notch
culture in our own backyard!

On that day, though, it was
the friendship, support and
encouragement given by
Ben and Rosemary Krieger
to Aid to Victims of Domes-

annual fundraising luncheon
sponsored by AVDA, an or-

24-hour-a-day hotline, crisis
counseling, safety planning,
screening for emergency
shelter services and explora-

for victims of abuse.

She accepted the award from
last year's recipient, Arlene

similarly honored in 2008.
"I am truly honored to be
chosen by AVDA," Rose-

emotion, Rosemary said,
"My husband, Ben, and I are
happy to have played a small
part" to aid victims of abuse.
She cited AVDA Executive
Director Pamela O'Brien for
her "diligence" and said to

the crowd, "My heart goes

"Open your eyes and your

all have something to give."
Quoting Mother Teresa, she
said, "It is not what you do,

Given the feelings owners should dis-

towards their pets, and the
costs of care and longevity
of some types of pets, plan-
ning in this area can be of
critical importance. This is
particularly true given our
mobile society and that the
laws of a different county
or state may impact you and
your pets or the pets of par-
ents and other loved ones.

What Will Happen to the
Pets When the Owner Be-
comes Disabled or Passes
Most pet owners do not want
their pets killed if something
should happen to them. Ho-
wever, without proper plan-
ning, the death of the pet is
almost certain in some areas.
For example, in some Ne-
vada counties, if the owner
does not provide for a pet
by way of a trust, when the

ty laws affect pets after the
owner dies or cannot care for
the pet.

Providing for Pets Upon the
Owner's Death.

Outright Gifts The law
treats pets as property, and

thus an individual cannot
leave money outright to a
pet, as property cannot own
other property. An individu-
al may leave an outright gift
of money to a caretaker with
the request that the caretaker
care for the individual's pet
for the rest of the pet's life.
However, because the care-
taker received the gift out-
right, and not in trust, no one
is responsible for ascertai-
ning whether the pet is re-
ceiving the care requested
by the pet owner. Once the
caretaker receives the gift
and the pet's owner is gone
or incompetent, there is no-
thing to stop the caretaker
from having the pet eutha-
nized, throwing it out on the
street, taking it to a local kill
shelter, or using the assets in
ways unrelated to the care
of the pet. In addition, once
in the caregiver's hands, the
assets are exposed to the
ca-regiver's creditors and
they may be transferred to a
former spouse on the caregi-
ver's divorce.

Golden joins Dr.

Man's Looking

Younger Medical

Spa staff

BOCA RATON Dr. Daniel Man has named Rachel Golden
to his Looking Younger Medical Spa staff.
Golden is a licen-
sed medical esthe-
tician with more
than 10 years expe-
rience in skin care.
Prior to joining Dr.
Man's practice,
Golden worked
for MAC Cosmet-
ics for seven years,
and helped to open
Niemen Marcus in
Town Center at
Boca Raton mall as
its sales associate.
Golden's passion
is skin care and ap-
plying camouflage
makeup, said Dr.
Man. She is on the
preferred vendor's list of many high-end resorts for wed-
ding makeup application. She provides a wide range of
specialized skin treatments for Dr. Man's spa and cosmetic
surgery patients.
A specialist in skin tightening facials, acne prone, and hy-
per pigmentation, she is also an expert in PCA peels and
oxygen facials.
Golden resides in Boynton Beach with her "pugeranian,"
pug and Pomeranian mix puppy named Sasha.
Dr. Man is a board certified plastic surgeon located in Boca
Raton at 851 Meadows Road, across from Boca Raton
Community Hospital. He is also a columnist for the Boca
Raton Tribune.


Kosta's Greek Restaurant will

have you shouting, 'Oopa'

We are a couple who can be
found three to four nights a
week at restaurants in South
Florida, or alternatively,
bringing home food from
Boca Raton's ever-
growing group of
sources of alleg-
edly gourmet take-
home delights.
As far as we can fig-
ure, there is no par-
ticular food group,
ethnic or regional,
which we have not or would
not try. There are restau-
rants that we go back to
time after time, but always
search out the new eateries.
Let us know whether you
agree with our opinions, or
write us at the e-mail ad-
dress below to suggest new
places to try.
We'll throw ourselves a
softball for this first-ever
column, a favorite Kosta's
Greek Eatery in Lighthouse
Point. Kosta's sits in a non-
descript strip center on the
east side of Federal High-
way at 5024 north.
Whether or not you are a
new or returning customer,
you are met upon entry
with a loud "Oopa" from
the owner and chef "Kos-
ta" from his position in the
open kitchen to your left.

He tends to get ticked off at
you immediately if you do
not respond in kind.
The restaurant is sprawling,
with a low ceiling and rustic
murals of scenes of
Greece. Upon en-
tering, a bar crosses
in front of you but
mostly serves as a
counter for delivery
of take-out orders,
or a place to wait
for tables at crunch
time. Not a place to meet a
future husband or wife.
The wait staff is friendly,
but the service is spotty,
especially at the crunch
times, as Kosta does all the
cooking from his point po-
sition, while occasionally
splashing a plate or two to
the rough floor with more
"Oopa". Occasionally he
orders all of us to stand for
some brief calisthenics.
There is one thing inKosta's
you cannot complain about
- the food, always fresh, hot
and delicious when delive-
red. You are welcomed with
hot pita bread topped with
garlic, cheese and oil. Re-
fills are endless.
In the past, we have gushed
over lamb chops, skirt steak,
and portabella mushroom
entrees, but come back

to Shrimp
a combo of
giant grilled
shrimp, to-
matoes ande
feta cheese.
The deserts
are traditio-
nal and to
die for.
My wife eats
light, gene-
rally ordering a huge Greek
salad, all fresh and topped
with quality veggies and
homemade dressing, while
sharing my entree and a
side of green beans cooked
with onions and tomatoes to
perfection. In honor of you
readers, I opt for something
not tried before, Loukan-
iko sausage from Kosta's
home territory, northern
It is served steaming, and
cut into larger than bite
sized slices. This put me off
at first, but soon I realized
that this choice is well de-
signed, allowing many more
crispy covers to explore.
The ne-ver before tasted
flavors that result are an un-
usual combination of citrus
and spice. Hot enough to
please, with no discomfort.

looking forward to a stable,

In 1988, Rotary partnerted with
WHO, CDC, and UNICEF to launch
the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.


Rotary membership gives men and
women an opportunity to forge new
friendships and share the rewards of
helping others through volunteer service.

The Rotary dub meeting is a chance for
members to socialize, network and plan
service acilies based on local needs
and their own interests and talents. In
addition, Rotary dubs often team up with
dubs in others counties to carry out
international service projects, enhancing
members'cross-ltural understanding.

When Paul Harris, a young
lawyer in Chicago, formed
a club with three friends in
1905, he hoped to recapture
the atmosphere of camara-
derie and friendship he had
experienced growing up in
smalltown America.
Because they rotated mee-
tings between their offices,
they called their group the
Rotary Club. Members met
weekly to socialize, net-
work, and plan projects to
help the community.
Over the next century Ro-
tary grew from a single club
into a diverse, international
network of nearly 33,000
clubs in more than 200

ing alone, an individual's

the right people work to-

Rotary gives club members
the opportunity to help peo-
ple in need wherever they
live, from supporting local
food banks to helping AIDS
orphans in Africa. In doing
so, Rotary members work at
the grassroots level to pro-
mote peace and understand-

Rotary's top goal: a

polio-free world

Rotary club members have
been working toward a po-
lio-free world since 1985,
when Rotary launched its
landmark PolioPlus pro-
gram. In 1988, Rotary
became a spearheading
partner in the Global Polio
Eradication Initiative, along
with the World Health Orga-
nization, UNICEF, and the
U.S. Cemters for Disease
Control and Prevention.
Since then, Rotary mem-
bers worldwide have dona-
ted their time and resources
to help immunize more than
two billion children in 122
countries against this crip-
pling disease.
By the time polio is eradi-
cated, Rotary will have con-
tributed more than $800 mi-
lion to the cause. The goal

is almost at hand, and today
polio persists in only a had-
ful of countries. Fewer than
2,000 cases are reported
annually, compared with
350,000 a year in the late
1980s. A polio-free world
will be Rotary's ultimate
gift to children everywhere.

Summer of 2010

I think this summer of 2010
is being as over-hyped as
Windows Vista was when
it first came out. I don't see
anything major happening.
I think LeBron will stay in
Cleveland, and Wade will
stay in Miami.
No, Wade isn't going to Chi-
cago.. the Bulls are like the
Cubs they are cursed ever
since the great Jordan left.
The Bulls are a one man
team. It's the Rose show
and the future of that fran-
chise is riding on the point
guard's ailing ankle. Why
would Wade leave Miami to
go to a team that is worse?
He isn't just going to go to
the Bulls because it's his
home town and he idolizes
Michael Jordan.LeBron to
the Clippers? Is that even a
relevant team? I thought the
only team in LA was the
Lakers. That rumor probably
came from some Clipper that
got annoyed with Blake Grif-
fin not playing and he made
the LeBron rumor. Okay. so
Wade and Lebron in New
York. No, that won't work,
LeBron nor Wade want to
play in that mess that we call
Knicks. Sorry to break the
news to you guys, Wade and
LeBron are staying in their
respective places. Miami and
Where else could Wade go?
Give me a place you think
he can go and I'll shut it
down because it would be
as dumb as the HEAT Mes-
sage Boards telling us Riley
is actually thinking of a trade
with Houston that will send
Wright and O'Neal to Hous-
ton for Tracy McGrady...
Now, How about the other

players. How about Chris
Bosh, Amare Stoudemire,
Manu Ginobili, Carlos Booz-
er, and Tracy McGrady? He-
re is what Miami is going
to do. They should go after
Chris Bosh and Carlos Boo-
zer. No, they shouldn't go af-
ter LeBron James, regardless
what Wade said about thin-
king he "want" to play with
James. No, he really doesn't.
Wade is a superstar and so is
James, they can't co-exist in
a NBA Team.
Bosh and Boozer would
be great for Miami. They
can move Bosh to the cen-
ter position, put Boozer in
the power forward, Beas in
the small forward, Wade at
shooting guard, and Chalm-
ers running the point. That's
a monster roster, then with
the money left we should
sign some second-tier free
agents who are willing to
sign for less money in order
to play with a championship
I know many of you people
don't agree with me leaving
Chalmers as the point.. Well
though, I think Chalmers is
the next Rajon Rondo of the
NBA. Give him time, he will
flourish under a star-studded
team much like Rondo.

D'Addio steps down as girls' varsity

soccer coach at PJPII High

By Dale M. King
Boca Soccer Club Director
Bill D'Addio has resigned
from his position as the
girls' varsity soccer coach
at Pope John Paul II High
School, the school has an-
The news comes after an-
other successful season for
the Eagles, who reached the
regional semi finals for the
second year in a row and
have never failed to reach
the regional tournament un-
der D'Addio's five-year ten-
ure as coach.
This past season the Eagles
finished with a record 18
wins, 5 losses, and two ties,
with three of the five losses
coming at the hands of the
eventual state champion,
American Heritage-Delray,
whose team consists most-
ly of Team Boca players,
the local travel club which
D'Addio runs.
"It's been a great expe-
rience coaching at Pope
John Paul II" said Coach
D'Addio. "I'll definitely
miss all the players and ev-
eryone involved at Pope but
I'll always stay connected
with the school and soccer
program" said D'Addio,
who also serves as an Ad-
visory Board member to the

D'Addio leaves Pope John
Paul II with a record of 75
wins, 22 losses, and 7 ties,
with probably the most no-
table win coming in 2008
when his Eagles won the
district championship with
an upset over a much more
experienced St. Andrews
D'Addio's team also had an
impressive 3.94 team grade
point average (GPA) this
season, which he attributes
to a disciplined coaching
style that demands a total
commitment to both soccer
and academics.
Coach D'Addio stated there
were two main reasons for
his resignation from Pope.
First is to have more time to
travel and watch his daugh-
ter Brittany play her first
year of college soccer, and
second to spend more time
coaching at Team Boca and
further develop their college
recruitment program, which
has recently become almost
a full time job for D'Addio.
"Our mission at Team Boca
has become more focused
on college recruitment and
helping our kids earn soccer
scholarships" said D'Addio.
Every player on last sea-
son's Team Boca Girls Un-
der 18 age squad (which

D'Addio was the coach)
received an offer to play
college soccer, from such
schools as St. John's, Ole
Miss, NC
State, East Carolina, and
NYU; just to name a few.
This year's Team Boca se-
niors look to do the same.
Among them is Pope
John Paul standout Brit-
tany D'Addio, (Coach)
D'Addio's daughter, who
recently signed a national
letter of intent to play at
Flagler College in St. Au-
gustine next season.

The Florida Derby lost its
main attraction when Esk-
endereya, who would have
been the race's odds-on fa-
vorite, defected to await the
Wood Memorial in New
York on April 3.
But in his place, Gulfstream
Park's marquee event picked
up several late entries. Rule,
the 5-2 morning-line favor-
ite, will break from post 7 in
a field of 11 3-year-olds en-
tered in Saturday's $750,000
Florida Derby at Gulfstream
Park. Radiohead, the 3-1
second choice on linemaker
Chuck Streva's morning line
for the Grade 1 Florida Der-
by, was not as fortunate. He
will break from the extreme

outside in post position 11
on Saturday.
"Obviously, it's a huge dis-
appointment to lose what at
this point would probably be
the Kentucky Derby favor-
ite," racing Secretary Dan
Bork said of Eskendereya.
"What every track points for
with its Derby prep races is
to attract the big horse at the
right time. But they've got
their plans and we can't do
anything about that. On the
flip side, we've picked up a
few more starters and wind
up with a much more at-
tractive betting race without
Rule, the only graded stakes
winner in the field, will be
ridden by jockey John Ve-

lazquez. "It's a good post for
him," Velazquez said after
the draw. "He should be able
to get good position from
"Our horse breaks good
and he's got natural speed,"
Radiohead's trainer Rick
Dutrow said when asked pri-

"I'm really looking forward
to turning the page and just
enjoy watching my daugh-
ter play in college next sea-
son." said D'Addio.
The PJP II girls' soccer team
will be left in good hands as
PJP II Athletic Director and
fellow Team Boca coach
Scott Baker will replace
D'Addio as the coach of
the girls' team, as well as
the boys which he is cur-
rently the coach. "Being a-
ble to have Scott step right
in and take over was a huge
part of my decision," said
D'Addio. "The team won't
miss a beat."

side with such a short run to
