School District may squelch Boca High

conversion plan, says consultant


By Staff Writers

BOCA RATON If a
plan to convert Boca
Raton Community High
School to a charter
school passes muster
with local officials, pa-
rents and the teachers
union, it may be killed
by the Palm Beach
County School District.
That's the opinion of


Fred Schwartz, chair-
man of a feasibility com-
mittee that has been
studying the concept.
He recently told the Fe-
deration of Boca Raton
Homeowners Associa-
tions that "the district is
opposed to it. The dis-
trict will probably find
a reason not to approve
it."
But he did say an ap-


peals process exists,
and noted that every le-
gitimate charter appeal
made to date has been
approved.
The proposal to turn
Boca High and, eventu-
ally, all 10 of Boca Ra-
ton schools, into charter
schools, has met with
mixed reaction even
within the city limits.
Schwartz said teachers


are concerned about
things like wages, se-
niority, tenure and other
benefits. The School
District is dead set a-
gainst it because it
would funnel all state
aid money to each char-
ter school rather than
that split it with the dis-
trict.

Traffic light sought by Abrams at

fatality scene activated


By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON District 4
Palm Beach County Com-
missioner Steven Abrams
addressed the crowd April 1
on the day a traffic signal at
the scene of a bicycle fatal-
ity in West Boca Raton was
activated.
Abrams joined the crowd
when the switch was thrown
on the recently installed traf-
fic signal at the intersection
of Camino Real and Camino
Del Mar Drive.
The signal was installed
after the death of a local


resident, Timothy Williams,
who was struck by a vehicle
at this intersection while rid-
ing his bicycle there about a
year ago.
"This tragic death prompted
me to request a traffic study
with the county's engineer-
ing division," said Com-
missioner Abrams. "Upon
completion of the study, it
was determined that this in-
tersection met the require-
ments for the installation of
the signal."
"I believe the residents of
this community will feel saf-
er with the new signal, and


an important step has been
taken in hopes of avoiding
any future tragedies," he
added.
In memory of Timothy Wil-
liams, members of his fami-
ly were also invited to attend
the activation.

BOCARATON Ted Deutch
became District 30 state se-
nator in 2006, succeeding
former State Sen. Ron Klein,
who was term-limited out of
office that year, but won the
election for U.S. Represen-
tative from District 22.
After two terms as a state
senator, Deutch on Tues-
day won the vacant seat of
former U.S. Representative
Robert Wexler, who quit
Congress in January to take
a job with a Washington-ba-
sed think tank.
In Tuesday's election called


by Gov. Charlie Crist to re-
place Wexler, Deutch, a li-
beral Democrat, outpolled
Republican Ed Lynch by a
margin of about 2 to 1. The
District 19 winner received
about 62 percent of the votes
(42,971) to just over 35 per-
cent (24,304) for Lynch.
A third candidate, Jim Mc-
Cormick, who was running
without party affiliation, re-
ceived 1,895 voters or about
2.74 percent.
Deutch and Lynch were the
top vote getters among De-
mocrats and Republicans
who cast ballots in a primary
election held in February.


Motorcyclist killed in

Boca traffic crash


BOCA RATON The Boca
Raton Police Services De-
partment's Traffic Homi-
cide Unit is investigating a
fatal traffic crash just after 6
p.m. March 31 in the 3400
block of North Dixie High-
way.
Public Information Officer
Sandra Boonenberg said a
motorcyclist identified as
Phillipe Donnakanian, 45,
of Highland Beach, was
heading north on Dixie
when he apparently lost
control of the motorcycle.
She said the 2007 Suzuki
left the roadway and went


onto the grass swale area
on the east side of the road,
where it continued to travel
north and struck a sign post.
The motorcycle then struck
an unoccupied parked lawn
trailer attached to a 2004
Chevy pickup truck.
The motorcyclist was ejec-
ted from the motorcycle
and was pronounced dead
on the scene, said Boonen-
berg.
Investigators are asking
anyone who may have wit-
nessed the crash to contact
Traffic Homicide Investi-
gator Mike Lawlor at (561)
620-6103.


During his first term in state
office, Deutch passed two
landmark legislative initia-
tives in state legislature.
He received national rec-
ognition and testified before
Congress for his successful
efforts passing the "Protec-
ting Florida's Investments
Act," which mandated that
the retirement funds of Flo-
rida workers could not be
used to support Iran's quest
for nuclear weapons or aid
genocide in Darfur.
In 2009, Deutch authored
the "Protecting Florida's
Health Act," a public health
initiative intended to reduce
youth smoking through an
increased surcharge on to-
bacco products.
In the Senate, Deutch also
passed legislation impro-
ving health care for seniors,
promoting public education,
and protecting children and
the environment.
The Bethlehem, Penn., na-
tive is a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Michigan and the
University of Michigan Law
School. He was a lawyer
with the Boca Raton firm of
Broad and Cassel.
He lives in Boca Raton with
his wife, Jill, his 14 year-old
twin daughters, Gabrielle
and Serena, and his 11 year-
old son, Cole.


Man standing in SUV

hits head on parking

garage beam


BOCARATON Aman from
Jacksonville Beach survived
what Boca Raton police cal-
led an incident of "horsing
around [that] nearly took his
life."
According to reports, 26 year-
old John Ruger is recove-
ring at Delray Medical Cen-
ter after being knocked out
of the sunroof of a moving
SUV in a parking garage on
South Federal Highway.
The report said Ruger was
standing up in an SUV, with
his upper body protruding
through the sunroof about
2:30 a.m. March 26. That's
when the car, driven by
28-year-old Bret Douglas of
Boca Raton returned to the
parking garage at 233 South
Federal Highway.
Police said Ruger, who was
in the back seat of Douglas'


2009 BMW SUV stood
up on the center console
through the sunroof while
the vehicle was still moving.
As Ruger turned from the
first level of the garage to
the second level, the ceiling
height drops to just over se-
ven feet, police said. That's
when Ruger's head came in
contact with a cement beam,
knocking him out of the SUV
Police said the victim was
rushed to Delray Medical
Center where he is being
treated for serious injuries.
The driver of the SUV Dou-
glas, and another passenger
in the car, 27 year old John
Preston of Boca Raton, were
not injured.
The investigation is on going,
police said, and charges may
be pending.

WEST PALM BEACH Dis-
trict 4 County Commission-
er Steven Abrams led recent
opposition to a $24,975 al-
location to fund the Sweet
Corn Fiesta during a recent
meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners.
"While I am a strong sup-
porter of the agricultural in-
dustry in Palm Beach County,
these are the tough decisions
that the Board has to make
in order to deal with the up-
coming $100 million defi-
cit without raising taxes,"
Abrams said.
"The County Commission has
already eliminated its own
district funding for similar
festivals," Abrams added.
The Board agreed to elimi-
nate the allocation from next
year's budget.
The 2010 Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sweet Corn Fiesta will be
held on April 25. According
to its website, it features
a corn-eating contest, corn
shucking and rides for the
kids.

State board approves independent


medical program at FAU


By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON Florida At-
lantic University is just one
step away from establishing
an independent medical edu-
cation program on its Boca
Raton campus.
The Florida Board of Gover-
nors (BOG), which oversees
state universities, unani-
mously approved the pro-
gram recently. It still needs
the OK from the state legis-
lature.
The doctor of medicine de-
gree program was approved
by FAU's Board of Trustees
in February as well as by
two BOG committees prior
to obtaining approval by the
BOG's full board.
"Today is an exciting day for
Florida Atlantic University,"
said John Pritchett, FAU's
interim president. "FAU's
medical education program
has a strong foundation and
will continue to position it-
self as a leader in state-of-the
art medical education and
groundbreaking research."
School officials said the new
FAU medical education pro-
gram will employ a unique
continuity medicine curri-
culum whose characteristics
include a smaller, more in-
teractive learning environ-
ment; interdisciplinary and
community collaboration;
patient-centered, self-directed
learning; small learning com-
munities; continuity of care,
patient safety, and compre-
hensive, chronic disease ma-

nagement; early introduc-
tion of clinical training in
multiple community-based
hospital and outpatient set-
tings; and a state-of-the-art
medical simulation center.
In addition to offering the
M.D. degree, FAU propo-
ses to offer a dual M.D./
biomedical sciences Ph.D.
option in partnership with
the Scripps Institute Kel-
logg School of Science and
Technology, which would
confer a doctorate degree.
FAU estimates that up to one
fourth of its M.D. students
could take advantage of this
option.
FAU's medical education
program will be housed at
the Charles E. Schmidt Col-
lege of Biomedical Science
on the Boca Raton campus.
Student and residency trai-
ning will be made available
throughout hospitals in Palm
Beach and Broward coun-
ties.
The target date for the inau-
gural class to begin is fall
2011, with total enrollment
of the program reaching 246
students by 2014.
The new effort required the
dismantling of a previous
plan that involved the Uni-
versity of Miami and was in-
tended to involve Boca Ra-
ton Community Hospital.
FAU originally inked an a-
greement with UM in 2004
to allow students to attend
medical education classes at
FAU for the first two years
of their training, and finish

from a School Advisory Com-
mittee and the City Council.
Schwartz explained that the
School District "has been
telling teachers to worry a-
bout salaries and pensions,
health benefits and senio-
rity."
The consultant said he re-
cently had breakfast with
Schools Superintendent Dr.
Art Johnson. "I asked him
if he would support it and
he said no," said Schwartz.
"He said if all the schools
in Boca convert, the district
would lose $25 million in
administration money. He
said it could cause a domino
effect."


the final two years at the UM
campus in Miami.
In February 2006, Boca Ra-
ton Community Hospital came
on board with plans to build
a medical center on the FAU
campus one that would re-
place its current facility on
Meadows Road and allow
the Boca-based university
to offer a four-year medical
program. After graduation,
FAU students would have
interned at BRCH.
The so-called "tri-partite affi-
liation agreement" fell apart
after Boca Hospital ran into
financial problems and, as a
result, pulled out.
After that, said Pritchett, the
FAU administration began
examining alternative strate-
gies to continue the medical
education program. Earlier
this year, it terminated the
affiliation with UM.
He said the decision by FAU
to seek approval from the
state legislature and the Sta-
te Board of Governors to
continue the MD program
independently was one of


Schwartz said the schools
chief "is trying to use money
and power to stop it."
He also said the Classroom
Teachers Association also
fears the impact of switching
to charter schools. But he
emphasized said teachers
will not lose seniority, pen-
sions or health insurance.
In fact, he added, teacher
salaries should rise, but they
cannot be reduced.
The conversion of Boca High
would be more of a fiscal
and administrative change
than one affecting the physi-
cal plant. Charter schools are
financed by taxpayers, but
are free from most district


three options on the table.
Pritchett said the university
also considered extending its
pact with UM or affiliating
with another med school.
What tipped the scale, he
said, was an agreement rea-
ched with Scripps Research
Institute "to partner with FAU
on a joint degree program
that would offer students an
MD from FAU and a Ph.D.
from Scripps."
Termination of the agree-
ment with UM was needed
to launch the program with
Scripps, which is located on
FAU's campus in Jupiter.
FAU says it can offer the
new program with no new
money from the state, u-
sing tuition and $12 million
in state funding it already
receives for its UM partner-
ship.
Pritchett also said the new
program "will be operated
without the need for any
additional legislative appro-
priations."


oversight.
He said the school would o-
perate under the jurisdiction
of a volunteer, appointed
committee. Teachers and ed-
ucational staff would decide
what and how to teach rather
than have it imposed by the
district.
Schwartz said the SAC has
decided to draft a prelimi-
nary application to convert
the educational center into a
charter school.
A 501c3 nonprofit has al-
ready been created, Schwartz
said. "That will be the entity
that the SAC will utilize for
the charter conversion."
It must be approved by a


simple majority of teachers and the union before it goes to
the district for its vote. He said Boca's School Board repre-
sentative, Frank Barbieri, endorses the proposal, but appar-
ently some other members don't.
Parents of Boca students began moving in the direction of a
charter conversion months ago after an abortive attempt by
the School District to impose what they called "one size fits
all" educational initiatives on Boca's A-rated schools. The
mandates would have included the removal of traditional
one-teacher classrooms and imposition of new homework
rules in elementary schools.
In reaction to the rancor, the Council established a commit-
tee to study the possibility of charter school conversions and
see if they would make sense from education and financial
points of view.
Even though the district dumped its plans for new educa-
tional initiatives back in January, Boca officials have moved
ahead with the charter plan.
Among others backing the proposal are Mayor Susan
Whelchel, House Majority Leader Adam Hasner and Boca
High Principal Geoff McKee.

Boca 911 dispatchers honored

during Telecommunications


Week
BOCARATON The 27 911
dispatchers who work for
the city of Boca Raton were
recently honored as part of
National Public Safety Tele-
communications Week.
In 2009, the telecommuni-
cators at the Boca Raton
Police Services Department
answered more than 168,000
calls for police and fire. They
also dispatch and coordinate
the city's police officers and
fire/rescue services.
Each year, the second full
week of April is National Pu-
blic Safety Telecommunica-
tions Week. It is dedicated
to recognizing the men and
women who are the critical
link between the public and
first responders.
Telecommunicators help de-
liver babies, give CPR ins-
tructions, direct field units
and provide a calm voice in
the midst of chaos, 24 hours
a day, seven days a week.


iNa1iuIal ruuDl m aley leie-
communications Week was
conceived by Patricia An-
derson of the Contra Costa
County (Calif.) Sheriff's Of-
fice in 1981 and was observed
only at that agency for three
years.
Members of the Virginia and
North Carolina chapters of
the Association of Public-
Safety Communications Of-
ficials (APCO) became in-
volved in the mid-1980s.
By the early 1990s, the na-

'Effective leadership' key through


ups, downs, Odland tells Chamber


BOCA RATON Mistakes
happen, but leaders persevere
to lead their employees through
the challenging times, Steve
Odland, Chairman and CEO
of Boca Raton-based Office
Depot Inc. told area leaders
at a recent Greater Boca Ra-
ton Chamber of Commerce
(GBRCC) Trustee Luncheon.
In front of more than 80 lo-
cal business representatives,
Odland presented his in-
sights into the economy and
the skills and adaptations
that strong leaders need to
succeed.
"To have Mr. Odland in our
community, a leader who
dines with the President of
the United States, a leader
that has a direct line to other


world business
leaders such as
Jamie Dimon,
and a leader that
will share his
insights, experi-
ences, and the
resources of Of-
fice Depot with
the Greater Boca
Raton Chamber
of Commerce is
truly a blessing,"
said J.C. Per-
rin of JPMorgan
Chase.
The Trustee
Membership Pro-
gram was found-
ed in 1999 to bring together
senior-le-vel executives
whose ca-ring and commit-
ment to the community is
the foundation for the Cham-
ber's continued growth.
More than 140 businesses
are involved in the program,
including companies such as
Jarden Consu-mer Solutions,
JM Family Enterprises, NCCI
Inc., Office Depot Founda-
tion, Town Center at Boca
Raton, and Wachovia Cor-
poration.
"It was a special opportu-
nity to hear from the chair-
man and CEO of our very
own Fortune 200 company,"
said GBRCC President/CEO
Troy M. McLellan. "The
Chamber is grateful to have
such a strong business and
community partner with its
global headquarters right he-
re in Boca Raton."
Odland provided insights
into how the global busi-
ness world is interconnected
- from office supplies to the
housing market showing


how business affects every
part of each community all
over the world. One of the
keys to surviving the tough
times, he said, is to gather
the troops, focus on the com-
pany's core values and en-
hance customer service for
each and every encounter.
Sic. c Odland's comments
regarding the value of hav-
ing all employees focused
on a common vision and all
operating under the same
set of organizational values
resonated particularly well
with me personally and with
many others in the room,"
said Cheryl Budd, chief com-
munications officer for
NCCI Holdings.
"As he noted, tough eco-
nomic times can create un-
certainty on many different
levels with employees. Hav-
ing everyone work toward a
common goal and base their
actions and decisions on a
common foundation of val-
ues fosters trust, enhances
morale, and ultimately deliv-
ers value to customers."

FAU partners with FSMES to


establish Middle East Institute


BOCA RATON Florida
Atlantic University's Doro-
thy F. Schmidt College of
Arts and Letters recently
announced that it will part-
ner with The Florida Soci-
ety for Middle East Studies
(FSMES) to launch a fund-
raising initiative for the es-
tablishment of a Middle East
Institute at FAU.
"FAU has long been com-
mitted to Middle East stu-
dies in both teaching and
research," said Manjunath
Pendakur, dean of the Doro-
thy F. Schmidt College of
Arts and Letters. "With the
creation of the Middle East
Institute, FAU will be able to
expand its research and cul-
tural activities related to this
complex region."
"Working with FSMES, we


will strive to promote an un-
derstanding among the next
generation of national lead-
ers and the public at large
about the peoples, langua-
ges, cultures and religions of
the Middle East."
The Institute, which will
be the only one of its kind
in Florida, will be the fo-
cal point of academic and
cultural programs about the
Middle East, and will invol-
ve FAU faculty, students
and visiting scholars. It will
draw on the research and
teachings of faculty across
the university who share an
interest in the Middle East as
a region of study, including
faculty from the colleges of
Arts and Letters, Science,
Business and Education.
Although not degree-gran-


ting at its inception, the ins-
titute will fulfill a role in the
education of the state's stu-
dents and citizenry. Fellow-
ships will be offered to assist
master's and doctoral-level

BOCA RATON In the City
of Boca Raton, as in all of
Palm Beach County, we ha-
ve very high standards and
expectations in regard to our
quality of life.
Everyone knows that each
individual school, city, or
district has unique characte-
ristics, needs, and concerns
in educating their students.
In terms of educational ex-
cellence, our local public
schools should address all
the basic educational and
physical needs of all stu-
dents and create a learning
environment that will allow
them to excel beyond the
standard structure of educa-
tion.
One very important concern
recently raised in our com-
munity is whether our public
school students are receiv-
ing the absolute best avail-
able education even though


our public schools are rated
very highly by customary
Florida educational
standards.
In Boca Raton, ma-
ny teachers, students,
parents, and citizens
have expressed inte-
rest in existing schools
being converted to
charter schools to M
help enhance the quality of
education and academic re-
sources being delivered to
our children. The Boca Ra-
ton High School Advisory
Committee is now explo-
ring whether a conversion of
the school to a Conversion
Charter School, operating
within the School District
of Palm Beach County (SD-
PBC), would provide the fle-
xibility to educate each child
to their fullest potential.
What is a Charter School?

OVER A HUNDRED HOSPITALS IN FLORIDA

WERE GRADED FOR CARDIAC SURGERY...


BOCA RATON


COMMUNITY HOSPITAL


IS RANKED #1
HealthGrades', the leading independent healthcare ratings organization, has ranked
Boca Raton Community Hospital #1 for cardiac surgery in the state of Florida in
2010. According to their study, patients having bypass or valve surgery at BRCH
have a lower risk for adverse clinical outcomes relative to all other hospitals.

The National Cardiac Database also rates BRCH in the top 9% of programs in the
country. Over 90% of our open-heart procedures are performed off-pump. That
means a reduced risk of stroke, kidney failure and infection for patients.
Plus, a faster recovery.

If you or a loved one is in need of advanced, specialized cardiac care, talk to your
doctor about Boca Raton Community Hospital.

There's something special about


Have a special feeling
about West Boca Ra-
ton Community High
School. I used to think it was
because I was invited to the
grand opening of the mas-
sive facility several years
ago.
But it's deeper than that. It
has to do with the four acad-
emies there that give stu-
dents a leg up on others in
certain career areas.
The academies reminded me
of the similar system that
was created at my own high
school in Massachusetts -
unfortunately after I gradu-
ated. To my knowledge, my
alma mater, Attleboro High
School, now known as Attle-
boro Comprehensive High
School, is the only one in the
state that offers 12 vocatio-
nal training units in addition
to academic studies.
I saw how well that system
worked up north where it
has been in place a good 25
years or more.
The recent Culinary Appren-
tice competition brought
back memories of the Culi-
nary Arts program at my old
high school, and how many
of the students who trained
there went on to win awards
and to land jobs in gourmet
eating places.
In West Boca, as in Attle-
boro, students don't just


West Bo
learn a trade. They get a full
academic education as well.
But in West Boca, there's an
advisory board that brings
civic leaders on board to
work with the kids. It's a
public-private partnership that
works very well.
I know Schools Superinten-
dent Dr. Art Johnson is a big
fan of academies. It's a sys-
tem I feel should be adopted
at every school to give each
student the opportunity for
a truly well-rounded educa-
tion.

False Alarm
I was doing a little Googling
the other day when I stum-
bled on a news item that had
an apparent connection to
Boca Raton. The story said
plans to build a 3-story, 60
room hotel were angering a
group of Boca Raton resi-
dents.
Well, that's certainly a Boca-
style story. Remember the
opposition to the rebuilding
of the Boca Raton Beach
Club?
But I noticed the article was
in a newspaper serving the
Galveston, Texas, area. I
was curious why Texans
would be concerned about
an issue in Boca Raton.
Well, apparently, this hotel
is being proposed near a de-
velopment in Texas called


ca High
Boca Raton. The article even
quoted the secretary of the
Boca Raton subdivision ho-
meowners association, who
said it was wrong to put a
commercial use near homes.
(That also is a Boca Raton
argument).
Residents of Boca Raton,
Texas, along with neighbor-
ing San Joaquin, Keystone,
Falcon Ridge and Sunmead-
ow developments all oppose
the hotel because they think
it will decrease their proper-
ty values and increase crimi-
nal activity.
Well, Boca Raton (Florida)
has plenty on its plate with-
out dealing with a hotel
issue. That's one thing to
scratch off the to-do list.

Law and Order
I didn't realize that CQ Mag-
azine was involved in tally-
ing crime statistics.
But the gentlemen's clothing
publication has just listed its
ratings of state crime rank-
ings. And Florida, unfortu-
nately, is listed as No. 6.
It falls in line behind Ne-
vada, which is first; New
Mexico, Louisiana, South
Carolina and Tennessee.
CQ Press has apparently
been doing this survey for 20
years, comparing state totals
against the national average
for six crimes: murder, rape,


robbery, aggravated assault,
burglary and motor vehicle
theft.
Sixth place may seem a little
cruel, considering that Boca
Raton, at least, has taken the
lead in community policing
since Dan Alexander took
over as police chief several
years ago. And the VIPER
program, with its neighbor-
hood outreach and crime
website, has helped keep
the lines of communication
open.
Poor Nevada, though. It has
the dubious honor of top-
ping CQ's list of most dan-
gerous states for the seventh
year in a row. (Maybe the
movie "Casino" really was
"fact-based," as the DVD ja-
cket says.)
In this year's ranking, Dela-
ware saw the biggest in-
crease in crime falling 10
places from the 17th most
dangerous state last year to
the 7th most dangerous this
year. Other states that have
become more dangerous in-
clude Rhode Island (it fell
nine places in the rankings)
and Connecticut (now six
places lower).
The states that saw the big-
gest improvements over the
past year include Michigan
and Alaska. Each rose seven
spots in the rankings.

*--THOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER--
Douglas Heizer



Everything you do, do with love.


Thank
you!
A little
m o r e
more
than a
year ago,
Sthe may-
Sor and
the city
council of Boca Raton made
a Proclamation that January
13 was Douglas Heizer Day
in Boca Raton. For me this
was a huge honor to have
my work in the community,
though Rotary, Boy Scouts,
and church being recog-
nized. Everything I do, I do
with passion, with love and I
never look for awards.
This year again, the mayor
and the city council gave us,
at The Boca Raton Tribune,


a proclamation. It was such
an honor.
Like the first time, I didn't
do anything different than
I've always been doing, I do
my job with the passion of
serving others. This award
brought to us at Boca Tri-
bune more responsibility
than ever. We need to serve
our community even better.
Getting Real.
I can't do this myself. This
award belongs for our whole
team, beginning with our
managing Editor, Dale King
with his huge dedication
and love for our city, he has
helped me to build this paper
and Pedro, my oldest son,
who is by Dale's and my side
for everything. All the other
team members, without ex-


ception, you guys deserve
this.
Distribution.
Last edition our paper got
on the road faster. Andre
Heizer and Kyle Proffitt did
a great job delivering to all
the churches, hospitals and
schools in Boca Raton, all
the condominiums from
A1A to Hillsboro Blvd and
Linton. Barbara from Out-
side Pub made the doctor's
office distribution and Carlos
from All Service delivered
at retail stores. We delivered
more than 600 points! You
can see where you can get
our paper on line. If you still
don't have our printed edi-
tion please e-mail us : distri-
bution()bocatribune.com


Paper Boxes:
Yes! We now have our own
paper boxes. Look where
you can get your paper 24/7
in our map online. Also we
are working in getting our
inside racks placed in dif-
ferent locations. If you want
our rack in your business,
please let us know using the
same e-mail.
On The Road:
* Dale and I had lunch with
Peter Foley and Daniel
Schwimmer from Merrill
Lynch. An exciting project
could happen with their part-
nership.
* Eating at Water Colors res-
taurant is always amazing
but when I have lunch with
"the boss" I think it becomes
unimaginable! I had lunch


with Greg Taylor and Fran
Bannor. They told me about
the renovation project, and
about other projects. Again,
we are working together on
a couple of exciting projects.
One of them is to help the
needy people in our com-
munity.
* Washington Olivetto, (Go-
ogle him)! He is one of most
awarded publicist in the
world. He owns one of the
most prestigious adverti-
sing agencies in the world,
He has two productions that
are in the list of the 100 best
commercials in the world.
We had breakfast together
this week in Fort Lauderdale
as part of a Focus on Brazil.
Unnecessary to say, good
projects are coming to Boca


Raton.
Our team keeps growing:
Priscila Rodrigues who be-
gan with us as a Sales Rep,
has been promoted to Mar-
keting Assistant. Her first
task was a successful recep-
tion at the Water Color after
the proclamation at the City
Hall. You can't wait to see
what we have in mind.....
New sections, new columns
will come in our next edi-
tion...
We need your help!!
We still need your support to
place ads in our paper. Ad-
vertising is our life blood.
We need your support. Peo-
ple who placed ads are get-
ting results; this is a very
good sign. Right ads + right
media = best result.

For half an hour, the kitchen

ber was to prepare their fa-
vorite appetizer/salad, main
entree or dessert with the as-

The judging was intense as
TV cameras roamed around
and the panel dug into the

And all the spectators got a prize at the end. They got to eat
what the judges didn't consume.

*- FAITH -
By E. Truman Herring

The light that exposes

a hypocrite

Matthew 5:16: "Letyour light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is
in heaven. "


Last week our church
received a call regar-
ding a small fanati-
cal group in Topeka,
Kansas that is often
reported for their
hate protests at fu-
nerals. Because this
small fanatical group Pr. E.
call themselves a church and
Baptist at that, it is very easy
for the reader or listener to
assume all Christians, chur-
ches and Baptists are simi-
lar. I assure you, there are
over 40 million Baptists who
are nothing like that and to-
tally disassociate themselves
from such aberrant behavior.
While their portrayal of this
group may be accurate, is it
possible that your view of all
Christians, churches, Baptists
(police, lawyers, doctors, etc.)
can be formed from a single
atypical example?
Jesus taught that the kingdom
of God would be like a farmer
who planted good seed in his
field, but at night an enemy
came into his field and plant-
ed tares (a plant that looks
like wheat, but does not bear
good fruit) among the wheat.
When the wheat began to
grow, the farmer was shocked
to find that tares were also gro-
wing among the wheat. What
should the farmer do? Jesus
gave the answer that they
would both grow together
until the end of time. When
Jesus returns, God will sepa-
rate the tares from the wheat.
.1 I.ihihl i 13:24-30)
How do you recognize the
difference between a tare
(hypocrite) and the wheat
(one that bears good fruit)?
A hypocrite only has "Words
about God" but a true Chris-
tian has "Good works for
God to men." Jesus also
taught that that there would
be false prophets who would
be wolves in sheep's clo-
thing. Again you would re-
cognize them by their fruit or
works. (Matthew 17:15-22) I
wish the name "Christian" or
"Baptist" was not associated
with the cult in Westboro or
with us.
In contrast, a few weeks
ago there was a devastating


earthquake in Haiti.
It did not take an
earthquake for the
Florida Baptist Con-
vention, of which our
church is a part of, to
respond to the suf-
fering and needs of
humann Haiti. We have been
there for the past 15 years
helping and serving people.
We already had a network of
friends and churches that we
have worked with to minister
the love of God to the people
of Haiti. When the earthquake
hit our leadership was mobi-
lizing relief within hours.
The following is a report of
what Florida Baptists have
done in Haiti in the past six
weeks: Food shipped: Rice
80 tons, black beans 250,000
pounds, pasta 4,741 pounds,
meals 680,933. We also had
medical teams; 21 with 17,000
medications ministered and
19,576 patients seen. Our
ministry efforts were: 2,745
volunteer days served and
21,643 ministry contacts made.
Our church had a musi-
cal benefit concert for Haiti
and we sent the offering to
the Florida Baptist relief ef-
fort knowing that every dollar
would be maximized for the
relief effort. All of our seve-
ral thousand Florida Baptist
churches were given a food
packing list to collect food
that would feed a family in
need for a week.
Our history has been when
disaster strikes, Florida Bap-
tists are some of the first re-
sponders to help. I have seen
firsthand the love of God pre-
sent to give hope in despair
from Hurricane Andrew to
the present.
When Hurricane Wilma hit
our community a few years
ago, one day later a self-
contained 18-wheeler Baptist
Disaster unit, pulled into our
church parking lot to begin
ministering to our commu-
nity that would be without
electricity for days. Our chur-
ch partnered with a Bap-
tist Disaster Team, the Red
Cross and about 100 volun-
teers from our church to feed
around 6,000 meals a day for

Our existence in the world
affords us the liberty to ful-

not completely as we please;
their true value is conferred


only by the integrity of each

Therefore, be bold in all you

risks if you are persuaded
of the soundness of that new

a legitimate starting point for
something new and exciting

are you can find access to

you are expected to do. In
such case, you can safely
proceed to the place of great-
ness and of genuine fulfill-

the only direction God wish-

Your attitude should be
one of positive expectancy
amidst whatever barriers you


may encounter along your
earthly pilgrimage. If you just
look down and around, you
may see signs that would
keep you from moving. But
if you look up, to the brighter
side, you shall have greater
confidence to move on. The
obstacles are not ignored,
but neither are they allowed
to become a justified impedi-
ment in your journey. There-
fore, don't fear taking risks!

Answer: The con- Dr DanielMan time. This is relative-

riencing is not uncommon;
and there is surgery to help
repair the damage to your
ear lobes. Ear reconstruction
can involve the entire ear or
only a part the lobe.
Otoplasty is a general term
for ear reshaping. Ear lobe
reconstruction is much less
involved than other forms of
ear reshaping.
While earrings can add to a

pierced ears. The final tear
is usually just through a tiny
piece of tissue at the bot-
tom of the lobe. If only the
bottom is actually torn, im-
mediate repair will not take
care of the skin-covered slot.
However, if the tear starts
from a tiny pierced hole, im-
mediate repair is an option.
Otherwise, reconstruction
should be delayed until after
the wound has healed and


tissues are not inflamed.
Depending on the deformity,
reconstruction can take dif-
ferent forms. In all methods,
the skin lining the slot is re-
moved, creating a raw edge
to rebuild. Depending on the
type of tear or the amount
of damage in your ear, your
plastic surgeon can use dif-
ferent techniques for sur-
gery. When you meet with
your board certified plastic
surgeon, be sure to discuss
the technique he or she plans
to use for your surgery.
During most of these surge-
ries, local anesthetic is used
to numb the earlobe. After
surgery, most patients do not
need anything stronger than
an over-the-counter pain me-
dication.
It is important to care for
your earlobes after surge-
ry. You should wash your
wound with soap and water
three times a day. Your doc-
tor will prescribe you an an-
tibiotic ointment that should
be applied as well. You
may experience some drain-


age from the wound after
surgery. Sutures are usually
removed by your surgeon
within about seven days.
You should hold off wea-
ring earrings for at least six
weeks after surgery in order
to give your earlobes time
to heal properly. When you
do resume wearing earrings,
you should wear small, light
earrings for at least two
months after surgery. If your
holes have been closed and
you would like new holes
pierced, I generally recom-
mend waiting about six
months after surgery.

certified plastic surgeon who

Celebrating the greatness of



different fashions


By Diane Feen

BOCA RATON We all
worship a similar deity.
For some of us, it's an up-
scale steakhouse, for others
a chance to volunteer for a
good cause and still others
enjoy an opportunity to em-
brace their spiritual roots
The great thing about a de-
mocracy (in a hedonistic
climate) is that we get to
worship the greatness of our
lives in a different fashion.
Luckily, we are not the sum
total of our parts, but the vol-
ume of what experiences we
behold
For Boca Raton residenc-
es, it has been an interest-
ing time. We started off the
month with cultural great-


ness at Mizner Park. The
concerts and literary events
brought an air of artistic
brilliance and a sense that
Lincoln Center or the Aspen
Festival had come ashore
(sans oil drilling).
Some locals walked by the
white tents during rehearsal
and were able to watch a
rough draft of the evening's
show (at no charge).
At the end of the cultural
smorgasbord was an annual
ritual known as the Boca
Bacchanal. This wine and
food connoisseurship hails
from the traditions of Caesar
with a Romanesque heritage
of hedonism.
The event took place the
third weekend in March and
included simultaneous Fri-


day night dinners (Vintner
dinners) held at luxurious
homes and yachts around
town. Strangers and friends
share fine wine and ultra-
divine food while trying to
find common ground. This
year the event was sold out
in advance (proof the re-
cession may be over). The
Bacchanal & Auction at the
Boca Raton Resort & Club
(closed to the media) is a
multi-course dinner with
fine wines.
The most proletariat event
of the weekend is The Grand
Tasting held under the tent
at the Mizner Park Amphi-
theatre. This rather exotic
wine and food-fueled feast is
surely a Roman Empire leg-
acy (Perhaps it precluded the


historical fall.). Hundreds of
people walk the aisles tast-
ing a bit of this and a lot of
that. Flavor and fervor run
high and the food and wine
lasted till the bell tolled (at
3 p.m.).
There were 140 wines to
sip and wickedly tasty food
from 30 local restaurants.
The challenge is to grip
your wine glass while bal-
ancing plates of crab cakes,
tiny steak sandwiches, stone
crabs, pasta and a delicious
deluge of other delicacies.
You could say it is a culinary
stroll that speaks to your in-
ner gastric cravings. The
event supported the Boca
Raton Historical Society (a
worthwhile cause for sure).
On the same day (Sunday


March 21) was the inter-
faith service at the Catholic
Church, St. Joan of Arc. For
24 years Temple Beth El and
St. Joan of Arc have been
sharing their religious be-
liefs and traditions on both
sides of the aisle and the
street (both are on SW 4th
Avenue).
Rabbi Dan Levin gave a
moving sermon about the
leadership qualities of Mo-
ses "good leaders are good
servants," he said and
"leadership is a partner-


ship with God, not instead
of God." It was a morning
of love and enlightenment -
brotherhood and blessings.
On Friday night Monsignor
Michael McGraw spoke
about Jesus Christ and
his leadership qualities (it
was standing room only at
Temple Beth El). Liturgical
songs rang from the rafters
of both great houses of wor-
ship. We saw the one in the
many which is a joyous
recipe for peace.

Eighth annual YMCA Prayer

Breakfast sets attendance record
BOCA RATON The 8th Annual Prayer Breakfast for the YMCA of South Palm Beach
County drew a record audience of over 500 supporters who rose early to enjoy a breakfast
at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.
The audience was met with a festive display of balloons and music, a performance by the
Plantation High School Step Team and a thought-provoking presentation about family val-
ues presented by Bob and Pam Tebow. The Tebows are the parents of former Florida Gator
and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow, and they have been actively involved in mission-
ary work in the Philippines for more than 25 years.
"The prayer breakfast was both entertaining and inspiring," said Yvonne Boice, chair of the
event, and a member of the YMCA board of trustees. "This was our most successful event
to date, and we are excited that so many people from our community showed their support
of the YMCA's wonderful programs and scholarships."
"In 2009, approximately $500,000 was given in scholarships that provided children and
families in need with the opportunity to participate in summer camps, active older adult pro-
grams, sports leagues and more," stated Bradley Kitchens, YMCA Board chair. "We are ex-
tremely proud of what the YMCA offers to our community and of the commitment we have
made to instill in our children the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility."
For more information about the YMCA, call the Peter Blum Family YMCA of Boca Raton
facility at (561) 395-9622 or the DeVos-Blum Family YMCA of Boynton Beach facility at
(561) 738-9622.

the Fire funeral home in a gloomy

et up in a sensitive soul with a spe-
Illllr


cial empathy for the dying
and dead, or is he simply a
lunatic?
This first effort by writer
director Agieszka Wojto-
wicz-Vosloo is an ineffective
hodgepodge of horror film
cliches and gory jolts. The
mostly naked Ricci catches
your attention, but the mind
wanders after the first half
hour or so and at 90 minu-
tes the film seems long and
pointless.

"The Runaways" a lurid,
entertaining cautionary tale
On a more positive note,
"The Runaways" is an en-
tertaining look at America's
first all-girl punk band, The
Runaways.
The girl-on-girl kiss between
Kristin Stewart and Dakota
Fanning has overshadowed
what is a rather good biopic
by director Floria Sigismon-
di, who co-wrote the screen-
play with Cherie Currie,
based on her tell-all book,
"Neon Angel."
Cherie Currie was the lead
singer of The Runaways,
hand-picked by manager Kim
Fowley (Michael Shannon),
simply because of her look.
Just 15-year-years-old, Che-
rie (Dakota Fanning) re-
minded Fowley of a jailbait
Brigitte Bardot.
Shannon is the star player
and over-the-top villain
who insists to the five girls
that are The Runaways that
sex sells, and if they want to
be successful, they have to
flaunt it.
The creative mastermind of
The Runaways was guitarist,
singer and songwriter Joan
Jett, played by "Twilight's"
teen star, Kristen Stewart.
Joan Jett was to Cherie Cur-
rie what Mick Jagger was to
Keith Richards: the former
more focused and career-
minded, and the latter more
libertine, thrill-seeking and
out-of-control.
If anything "The Runways"
is a cautionary tale about
the dangers of alcohol and
drugs- especially for the
young and naive.
Cherie Currie burned out


and fell into the abyss of addictions. This is the story of her return to real life. It is remarkably
well done by two fearless young actresses and an older actor who relishes playing the exploi-
tive, mercenary cad, entertaining us in the process.

April 6th, I was invited to
go over to Table 42 Italian
Kitchen and Wine Bar for
an exclusive media menu
tasting. Table 42 is where
the old Coal Mine Pizza
was located. I'm not much
of a food critic, but I loved
the atmosphere of the place.
The owner, South Florida
restaurateur Gary Rack, cre-
ated Table 42 to offer guests
a more upscale and modern
Italian dining concept. I '-IS ,
must admit, it was amazing.
The food was great, the at-
mosphere was even better.
They also have this great
night called "5 Dollar Bug-
ger Night" in which you go
in there and you create your
own burger just the way you
like it! The place to be on
Wednesday nights is at Table
42 and their famous 5 Dol-
lar Burgers! The party starts
kicking at around 8 pm when
they crank the music a little
louder and dim the lights for ,
an unforgettable night.

Pet of week, Chopper, is


searching for a loving home

Text, photo by Pam D'Addio

BOCA RATON What a mug, huh? You know you want to kiss it! I'm Chopper, a really
sweet boy you'll want to meet, so don't overlook me. I'm a 6-year-old Boston terrier who
weighs about 25 pounds.
I'm a real gentleman on my leash with no pulling, so our walks will be enjoyable. I know
how to sit when you ask (especially if I can smell that treat you're holding).
Neutered and housebroken, I'm a mature guy who won't present any of those silly puppy
problems and I also get along well with kids, cats, and other dogs. Why are you still rea-
ding this? Ask to meet me.
I'm available for adoption at Tri-County Humane Society, a no-kill animal shelter located
at 21287 Boca Rio Road in Boca Raton. The shelter is open for adoptions Tuesday through
Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Adoption fees for companion animals are $110 and up.
Animals are heartworm-tested and up-to-date on vaccinations. Included in the adoption fee
is one year of free office visits to
Regency Veterinary Clinic.
Please visit us to find a lost pet or to consider adding a shelter dog or cat to your family. We
have puppies and kittens, too! Call (561) 482-8110 or view many of our available animals
and volunteer opportunities at: www.tricountyhumane.org. Follow us on Facebook and
Twitter 'TriCounty Humane'.

MY PET


Peanut is just about
the cutest little dog-
gie in the world, say
his mommy and daddy,
Boca Tribune Managing
Editor Dale King and his


wife, Julia He-
bert. An apricot
poodle with a
sweet face and
wonderful dis-
position, he's
won the hearts
of everyone he
meets. He loves
to visit the neighbors, play
with toys, ride in the car,
run around the house, jump
on furniture and get treats.
He particularly loves get-
ting his tummy rub. He's


fond of getting up in the
early morning and giving
his mommy kisses even
if it wakes her up (which
causes his mommy to call
him "bratty.") He been the
Kings' "little baby" since
September of 2006 and
he will be four years old
on May 24, 2010. But to all
concerned, he will always
be a puppy.

FAU Owls varsity grid Lynn University names Athletics Hall


team begins practice for

upcoming season


VY OT


From FA UAthletics Reports

BOCA RATON Florida A-
tlantic University's football
team donned the pads for the
first time of the spring this
past weekend.
Practice began April 3 with
players' meetings at 10 a.m.
The squad then moved to the
field for individual work and
the much anticipated "Okla-
homa" drill. While the team
is never surprised to see
"Oklahoma" on the practice
schedule, it is a tradition that
the lines match-up the first
day of pads.
The team then worked on
screens and inside drills. En-
thusiasm began to be felt in
the one-on-one drills, espe-
cially following a great catch
by tight end Byron Hanker-
son who was congratulated
by tightly covering veteran
Tarvoris Hill.
FAU then gathered as a team
and ran through about 10
minutes of team work fol-
lowed by a short controlled
scrimmage. Grant Glover,
who is vying for a wide re-


ceiver spot opened by gradu-
ated seniors, had a catch
down the left side and later
sparked the offense during
the scrimmage with a run
that broke through the line.
Darian Williams was cred-
ited with an acrobatic catch
and Rob Housler showed his
strength by breaking tackles.
The Owls' practice schedule
is Monday, Wednesday and
Friday at 3:30 p.m. with Sat-
urday's reserved for scrim-
mages. All practices are free
and open to the public.
The 2010 Spring Game is set
for Saturday, April 24 on the
Tom Oxley Athletic Fields
on the Boca Raton campus.
The day will also feature the
annual yard sale of athletic
apparel.
Following the scrimmage,
Owl fans, players and coach-
es will head to the Marleen
and Harold Forkas Alumni
Center for the first "Pride
and Spirit" event hosted by
FAU's Student Alumni As-
sociation. A pre-game tail-
gate will be hosted by stu-
dent government.


of Fame entrants for 2010


By Chad Beattie

BOCA RATON Lynn Uni-
versity Director of Athlet-
ics Kristen Moraz has an-
nounced the Athletics Hall
of Fame Class of 2010.
The two most represen-
ted programs, men's and
women's soccer, got a little
stronger with the induction
of Gareth Dunn and Joyce
Parson-Roth while the base-
ball program upped its total
with the inclusion of Donnie
Bivens.
The biggest addition came
with the welcoming of Ai-
mee Murch as the first soft-
ball Hall of Famer in school
history. Lynn's 2010 class
will be inducted on Wednes-
day, April 28, at the Annual
Athletics Banquet.
"This 2010 class represents
a true cross-section of suc-
cessful athletic careers wea-
ring the Blue and White,"
said Moraz. "Parsons-Roth
was a pioneer for the wo-
men's soccer program and
a long-awaited inductee.
Bi-vens and Dunn each esta-
blished prominence for their
sport programs while play-
ing for the Fighting Knights
and Murch individually
transformed the competiti-
veness of the Lynn softball
program. We are honored to
induct these special alumni
athletes."
Dunn becomes the third
men's soccer alumnus to
be inducted in the last three
years and seventh over the
last eight. A four-year starter
with the Fighting Knights
from 1997-2000, he was se-


elected for the Sunshine State
Conference Hall of Fame in
2008 and was picked for the
SSC 25th Silver Anniversary
Team following his playing
days, adding two more acco-
lades to an already distin-
guished career.
Dunn was a four-time
NSCAA All-American, two-
time NSCAA Scholar All-
American, four-time First
Team NSCAA All-South re-
gion honoree and the 2000-
01 Lynn and SSC Male
Scholar Athlete of the Year.
With Dunn on the pitch,
LU posted a 69-8-1 record,
made three NCAA Toura-
ment appearances, captured
two SSC titles and notched
one NCAA runner-up finish.
Parson-Roth is the fifth
member of the women's
soccer program to enter the
Hall of Fame ranks. A net-
minder from 1991-94, she
back-stopped the Fighting
Knights' first two women's
soccer national champion-
ships in 1992 and 1994. She
also helped LU to a NAIA
runner-up finish in 1993 and
semifinals placing in 1991.
A three-time All-America
honoree, Parson-Roth holds
or ranks in the top-five in
nearly every goalkeeping ca-
tegory at Lynn. She is first in
minutes played in a season
(2,113) and matches played
(77) and started (71), min-
utes (6,302), shutouts (33.5)
and wins (60) for a career.
Her 177 career saves are
second while her 0.56 goals-
against average is third all-
time.
Making this an every-other-


year occurrence, Bivens is
the third baseball selection
in the last five years follo-
wing Ed Sisko in 2006 and
Brad Fairholm in 2008. One
of the top pitchers the Figh-
ting Knights have ever had,
he holds the LU career re-
cord for wins (23) and com-
plete games (20) and innings
pitched (145.1) and CGs
(10) for a season.
He is also tied for first in
starts (17) and ranks second
in earned-run average (1.67)
for a single year and third for
ERA (2.77) and IP (253.1)
for a career.
In addition, he led all of
NCAA Division II in victo-
ries with 13 in 1997, which
is second all-time for the
Blue & White.
Moving from the mound to


the circle, Murch is the top
softball pitcher in school
history. Her impression was
felt so much in her two-year
stint with LU that she was
selected for the Sunshine
State Conference 25th Silver
Anniversary team.
The accolades she accumu-
lated in her time donning
the Blue & White include
NFCA First Team All-Ame-
rica, SSC Pitcher of the Year,
SSC Female Athlete of the
Year, two-time All-SSC and
NFCA All-Region selections
and the only two-time Blue
& White Club Athlete of the
Year in school history.

highlighted the Florida At-

performance at the Alumni
Invitational, hosted by the
University of Miami.
Roberts' leap of 39 feet, 6.5
inches was good enough to
take the title by nearly a

Toyria Mattear ran well at

*- THE MIAMI DOLPHIN SPOTLIGHT--
By Chris J. Nelson

Why haven't the Miami

Dolphins re-signed

Jason Taylor?


[ Unfortunately,
This piece
does not succeed
in answering the
question posed in
its headline.
I cannot answer
that question
because I don't
have an ans-
wer. Because,
no matter how
many times and
no matter how
long I've tried
to answer that
question, I can-
not make sense. ... ...
of the Dolphins'
actions-or lack thereof-in
this case.
As you well know by now,
Dolphins' free-agent outside
linebacker Jason Taylor has
visited the New York Jets
and is currently mulling over
a contract offer, with sources
saying a deal is 'close.'
Meanwhile, the Dolphins
seem to think they're one of
the cool kids in school, and
view Taylor as a last-resort
date for the dance only if no
one else works out.
It is a stance I simply can-
not comprehend, even from


qw


a purely football standpoint
rather than a sentimental one.
Sure, it would be nice for the
Dolphins to re-sign Taylor
because of how long he's
played for the team and what
he's meant to the team's
fans.
It would be nice to sign
him because he's a positive
member of the Miami com-
munity, a great veteran lead-
er for the team's younger
players.

Derby Favorite Working in Palm Beach County


Eskendereya, the favorite
for the May 1st Kentucky
Derby, is awaiting the Run
for the Roses by working out
at Palm Meadows Training
Center, just north of Boca
Raton, in Boynton Beach.
Trainer Todd Pletcher indi-

the Grade
1 Wood
SMemorial
and is back galloping at the
training facility.
Eskendereya, who also for-
midably won the Grade 2
Fountain of Youth at Gulf-
stream Park in Hallandale
six weeks before, earned a
109 Beyer Speed Figure for
the Wood, improving on the
impressive 106 he received


in the Fountain of Youth.
The Giant's Causeway colt
won the Fountain of Youth
by 8 2 lengths and the Wood
by 9 /2 lengths earning him
the status of Derby favorite.
Pletcher said that Eskend-
ereya will have two more
workouts prior to the Derby.
The first is scheduled for
Sunday, April 18, at Palm
Meadows and the last,
the following Sunday at
Churchill Downs. Eskend-
ereya will leave Palm Beach
for Louisville on April 20.
Eskendereya may have had
perfect trips in his two Der-

such that he can handle be-

The Denver Broncos and
the Miami Dolphins have a-
greed on a blockbuster trade
involving controversial wide
receiver, and UCF alumni,
Brandon Marshall heading to
Miami in exchange for two
second round draft picks.
Marshall, a restricted free
agent, had just signed his
$2.521 million tender from
the Broncos on Tuesday,
a move that facilitated the
trade of the controversial re-
ceiver. Marshall posted his
third consecutive 100-catch
season last year and made
his second consecutive trip
to the Pro Bowl despite sev-
eral run-ins with Broncos
coach Josh McDaniels. Mar-
shall had an NFL-record 21
receptions during a Dec. 13
loss at Indianapolis, and his
10 touchdowns for the sea-
son were a career best.
The Dolphins have been des-
perate for a deep threat at re-
ceiver to loosen up defenses
for their potentially potent


ground game and young,
strong-armed quarterback
Chad Henne. Ted Ginn Jr.
has been a disappointment
since Miami took him with
the ninth overall draft pick
in 2007. Ginn and the other
wideouts Brian Hartline,
Davone Bess and Greg Ca-
marillo combined for only
six touchdown catches last
season.
The acquisition of a top-line
receiver frees up the Dol-
phins to use the No. 12 pick
in the draft next week on the
defensive front seven, where
help is also needed.
The acquisition of Marshall
represents the biggest trade
acquisition by the Dolphins
since running back Ricky
Williams went to Miami in
2002 for four draft picks,
including two first-roun-
ders. Marshall is the second
big-name receiver to join
the AFC East this week.
The Jets acquired Santonio
Holmes, the MVP of Super
Bowl XLIII, from Pittsburgh
on Sunday.

Summary: To begin with,
the Marlins made the right
decision by trading Jeremy
Hermida. He was a major
disappointment and he un-
derachieved tremendously.
Also he would not have
been a non tender candidate
for most teams. As far as I
am concerned the Marlins
could have dumped Hermida
for a bag of bats and balls.
The Marlins starting lineup
looks very strong with the
second best player in base-
ball Hanley Ramirez, RBI
machine Jorge Cantu, and
the ultimate power source
Dan Uggla. Also the Marlins
Outfield looks very strong
with Cogh-
lan, Ross and
Maybin. This
is a make or .,,,
break season
for Cameron "..'.
Maybin. It
will be in- pi' I
teresting to
watch him


play, because he has a lot
to prove. Chris Coghlan
is coming off a National
League Rookie of the Year
campaign and he should
continue to make progress.
Believe it or not, Cody Ross
is one of the most underrated
players in the game of base-
ball. He hits for average, hits
home runs, gets on base, and
drives in runs. Also he is an
above average outfielder.
Cody is a complete player,
who deserves more recogni-
tion. On paper, the Marlins
don't look all that impres-
sive. However, they will
surprise you I guarantee it!
They will fly under the radar
like they do every year and
they will continue to make
people scratch their heads.
How do they do it? Well let
me explain, Marlins baseball
is not always pretty baseball,
but they find a way to get the
job done. In conclusion, the
Marlins are a very exciting
team to watch and they play
with tremendous enthusi-
asm, energy, determination
and passion!
