culum whose characteristics
include a smaller, more in-
teractive learning environ-
ment; interdisciplinary and

Single-car crash in West Boca


kills driver


BOCA RATON The Palm
Beach County Sheriff's
Office is investigating a fatal
car accident reported about
1:20 a.m. April 20 at Palmet-
to Park and Powerline roads,
a PBSO report says.
The victim was identified as
Edith Cuccinelli, 87, of Boca


Raton.
The report says Cuccinelli
had just turned onto eastbound
Palmetto Park Road from
southbound Powerline Road
when the vehicle continued
east within the center lane of
travel for a short distance.
The woman's car then drift-


ed to the left and went onto
a raised median. PBSO said
the car continued east a short
distance until it struck a tree.
The report said the driver
was taken to Delray Medical
Center where she died.


BOCA RATON Florida A-
tlantic University has cleared
its final hurdle in its effort to
offer an independent medi-
cal education program on its
Boca Raton campus.
The Florida State Legisla-
ture approved the program
when the Senate passed
House Bill 1581, which au-
thorizes creation of a curric-
ulum for medical doctor can-
didates. The bill now goes to
the Gov. Charlie Crist for his
signature.
The legislative OK comes
after the doctor of medicine
program was approved by
the Florida Board of Gover-
nors in April and received
approval by FAU's Board of
Trustees in February.
"What an exciting time for
Florida Atlantic University,"
said John Pritchett, FAU's
interim president. "We are


grateful to the bill's spon-
sors, Representative Adam
Hasner and Senator Joe
Negron, and to all of our
supporters who understand
that FAU's medical educa-
tion program will serve as a
leader in medical education,
as it combines academic
programming with truly
groundbreaking research."
In addition to offering the
M.D. degree, FAU proposes
to offer a dual M.D./biomed-
ical sciences Ph.D. option in
partnership with the Scripps
Institute Kellogg School
of Science and Technology,
which would confer a doc-
torate degree. FAU estimates
that up to one fourth of its
M.D. students could take ad-
vantage of this option.
FAU's medical education
program will be housed at

FAU's Center for Holocaust and Human BocaHospital in top 5percentin


BenefactorArthur Gutterman

BOCA RATON Florida A-
tlantic University's Center
for Holocaust and Human
Rights Education recently
received a major gift dona-
tion from Arthur Gutterman
to help continue the impor-
tant work of the Center.
Gutterman's gift will fully
fund five endeavors sched-
uled for fall 2010 through
spring 2011.
In addition to a Broward
teacher workshop and "Fac-
ing History: Choices" work-
shop, part of the gift will
support Genocide Awareness
Month efforts, including an
Armenian exhibit and an
additional "Facing History"
workshop.
Another portion will go to-
ward the purchase of new
books, DVDs, posters and
other supplies for the re-
source center. A special pro-
gram on rescuers of Jews
during the Holocaust will be
sponsored with the remain-
der of the gift.

gative and surveillance work
of undercover Boca Raton

with numerous burglaries to

Earlier this year, Gutterman
was honored for previous
gifts at the Center's "Para-
gons of Virtue Tribute Din-
ner." The event recognized
donors whose generous con-
tributions allowed the Cen-
ter to sustain its programs
through June 2010.
Since spring 2008, when
state budget cuts threatened
its existence, the Center has
relied on private donations
to continue providing pro-
fessional development pro-
grams for teachers and class-
room resources for teachers
and students to support Flo-
rida's mandate for Holocaust
education.
"We remain grateful to gene-

of anti-Semitism and heigh-

According to the Southern

third largest number of hate
groups in the U. S. with seven
active groups in Palm Beach
and Broward counties.
The Center was established
in 1996 by the Florida De-

its training, programs and

In the early morning hours
of April 22, a detective in the
Boca Raton Police Special

of the tag showed it matched
the car driven by Lundy in
the previous incidents.
After the vehicle left, the
detective conducted a check
of the business and noticed

Rights Education receives major gift


Excellence Award.
The latest accolade for Boca
Raton Community Hospi-
tal adds to a growing list of
honors. In addition to the
Women's Health Excellen-
ce award, HealthGrades has
ranked BRCH in the top 5
percent nationally, earning it
the 2010
Distinguished Hospitals for
Clinical Excellence. The
hospital was ranked #1 in
Florida for cardiac surgery,
#2 in Florida for the treat-
ment of stroke, #3 in Florida
for overall cardiac services
and #1 in Florida for gastro-
intestinal medical treatment.
"Given that we now know
medical problems like heart
disease can manifest them-
selves differently in women
than in men, we are extremely
gratified to see HealthGrades
recognize us in such a mean-
ingful way," said Jerry J. Fe-
dele, president and chief ex-
ecutive officer of Boca Raton
Community Hospital.
"We have a longstanding
tradition for excellence in
women's health and the
HealthGrades ranking is a
strong validation of our ex-
perience and expertise."
As a group, hospitals recei-
ving this award had women's
risk-adjusted mortality rates
that were 41 percent lower
than the poorest performing
hospitals in the study and
complication rates that were
19 percent lower than the
poorest performers.
While all hospitals, on ave-
rage, continued to improve
their mortality rates among
women, those receiving the
award improved at a faster
rate than all others over the
three years studied, 15 per-
cent compared with 12 per-
cent.
As part of the study, Boca
Raton Community Hospital
and virtually every other
hospital in the country were
evaluated for the following
procedures and treatments
among women aged 65 and
over:
* Women's Medicine (heart
attack, congestive heart fai-
lure, pneumonia, chronic ob-
structive pulmonary disease,
and stroke)
* Women's Cardiovascular
Procedures (coronary bypass
surgery, peripheral vascular
bypass, coronary interven-
tional procedures, resection/


replacement of abdominal
aorta, carotid surgery, and
valve replacement); and
* Women's Bone & Joint
Health (total knee and total
hip replacement surgeries,
spinal surgeries, and hip
fracture repair).
"There is clearly a wide
disparity in the quality of
care for women among top-
performing hospitals and
all others," said Rick May,
MD, a vice president with
HealthGrades and one of the
study's authors.
"The goal of this analysis is
not only to put sound data in
the hands of prospective pa-
tients, but also to identify top-
performing hospitals that are
setting national benchmarks
for the treatment of women
to which other hospitals can
aspire."
The HealthGrades study found
that 16,863 women could
have potentially survived
their hospitalization and
4,735 women could have
potentially avoided a major
in-hospital complication if
all hospitals performed at
the benchmarks set by Boca
Raton Community Hospital
and the other award reci-
pients.
The annual HealthGrades
study analyzed nearly 7 mil-
lion hospitalizations using
Medicare data from all 50
states from 2006 through
2008. Eligible hospitals must
have met volume require-
ments in stroke and either
coronary bypass or valve re-
placements; met the volume
requirements in at least six
additional cohorts of the 16
evaluated; and have trans-
ferred out less than 10 per-
cent of stroke patients.
Volume requirements are a
minimum of 30 female dis-
charges over the three years,
with at least five in the most
recent year for the cohort.
Boca Raton Community Hos-
pital is an advanced tertiary
medical center with 400 beds
and more than 700 primary
and specialty physicians on
staff. The hospital is a re-
cognized leader in oncology,
cardiovascular disease and
surgery, minimally invasive
surgery, orthopedics and wo-
men's health, all of which
offer state-of-the-art diag-
nostic and imaging capabili-
ties. The Hospital is a Joint
Commission Designated Pri-
mary Stroke Center.

of a tragic car accident while
relocating to Carthage, MO.
Also lost in the accident
was their beloved dog, Sam.
Billy and Hope were mem-
bers of SonCoast Commu-
nity Church in Boca Raton.
Billy was a 1985 graduate
of Carthage Senior High
School, and was a 14-year
resident of Delray Beach.
Billy was a licensed con-
tractor in the state of Flor-
ida. Together, he and his
wife, Dawn, built "A Step
Above Renovations, Inc."

loving father, beloved rela-
tive and friend to many.
He loved reading, history
and being on the water.
Hope was a loving daughter,


sister and friend, who was
passionate about animals
and helping others. She at-
tended Spanish River Chris-
tian School and loved dance,
singing and gymnastics. She
loved Jesus. Her dream was
to become a teacher or a vet.

Boca Housing Authority taking

Section 8 applications only online


BOCA RATON To help
avoid the large crowds that
gathered outside the Boca
Raton Housing Authority's
office last year in hopes of
getting a Section 8 housing
form, the BRHA this year is
taking applications only on-
line.
Authority Director Judie Agen
said the applications for Sec-
tion 8 and public housing
waiting lists will be taken on
the agency's website, www.
bocahousing.org, from 8
a.m. May 3 through 5 p.m. on
May 14.
"The applications will be
entered into a lottery sys-
tem and drawn randomly
by a computer-generated
program," she said. The em-
phasized that the lists can
only be accessed through the
websites. In-person applica-
tions will not be accepted.
She suggested that anyone
who does not have access
to a computer "can use your
public library or check with
local social service agencies
to see if they are permitting
public access to some of
their computers."
"You may contact our office
to make an appointment to
use one of our computers,"
she said. "But no walk-ins
will be allowed under any


circumstances."
In order to complete a lottery
entry, applicants you must
have the Social Security
number for each member of
the household. A family con-
sisting of two or more mem-
bers and at least one member
with eligible immigration
status is qualified to apply for
prorated assistance.
When people complete your
application to the lottery,
they will receive a confirma-
tion receipt with a number.
They should keep the receipt
because it has a number in-
dicating that the submission
has been entered into the
Housing Authority's program.
The lottery will then select
400 names for each pro-
gram. These names will be-
come the Boca Raton Hous-
ing Authority's waiting list.
The Housing Authority will
publish the receipt numbers
of the 400 people randomly
selected in numerical order
of the receipt numbers, on or
before June 30, 2010.
"This is not the order of final
waiting list," she said. "The
people whose names are not
selected will not otherwise
be notified."
Only one form is allowed
per applicant. Multiple ap-
plications will be discarded,


she said.
All persons will be treated
fairly and equally without
regard to race, color, reli-
gion, sex, familial status,
handicap, or national origin
in compliance with the Fair
Housing Act. Accommoda-
tions will also be made for
those with disabilities.

March of Dimes in Palm Beach

County strives for $535,000


By Luana Goncalves
The March of Dimes held
two walks in Palm Beach
County last weekend to
increase awareness of im-
provement for the health of
babies by preventing birth
defects, premature birth, and
infant mortality.
One walk was held at Flor-
ida Atlantic University in
Boca Raton with an estimated
2,000 people in attendance
and the other at John Prince
Park in Lake Worth with ap-
proximately 3,000 people.
With an approximate total
of 300 teams, both corpo-
rate and family teams fund-
raised towards their goal of


$535,000 to fund programs
in research, community ser-
vices, education, and advo-
cacy that save babies' lives.
According to Shanna St. John,
the Executive Director in
the Palm Beach Division for
March Dimes, the top teams
in Boca were NCCI, Jarden
Consumer Solutions, Bank
of America, Citi, QEP, and
Florida Atlantic University.
"The volunteers, walkers, and
teams that participate all
fundraise to raise dollars that
go directly into our mission
to help programs that we
have for mothers, parents,
and babies," said St. John.
The March of Dimes was
I


started in 1938 by President
Franklin D. Roosevelt to re-
search the cure for polio.
Today the organization con-
tinues to help children and
save babies that are born
prematurely.
Tony Manganello, Board
Member and Dad of March
of Dimes Ambassador Child
Kayla Manganello, benefit-
ed from the assistance of the
organization.
"I have been involved with
the March of Dimes only be-
cause of a lot things they do;
the work they do saved my
daughter's life," mentioned
Manganello.
In November 2005, his daugh-
ter Kayla was born 17 weeks
early from her due date.
Since 2006, Manganello has
been a regular walker.
"I have been very passionate
with the organization, and I
just want to keep giving back
to what was so given freely
to my daughter, to future ba-

FAU's CARD center


receives van to serve as


mobile assessment clinic


BOCA RATON -The Flo-
rida Atlantic University Cen-
ter for Autism and Related
Disabilities (FAU CARD)
recently received a specially
equipped van as a gift from
the Unicorn Children's Foun-
dation.
The van will serve as a mobile
assessment clinic by bringing
FAU CARD professionals to
various locations throughout
Palm Beach County and the
Treasure Coast to provide
free screenings to children,
ages 18 months to 5 years
old, who present signs of au-
tism and other developmen-
tal disabilities.
With its enhancements, the
vehicle is valued at $100,000.
Money raised at the Unicorn
Children's Foundation's first
annual golf tournament in
2009 were used for the van
purchase.
A luncheon was held recen-
tly at the Eleanor R. Baldwin
House on FAU's Boca Raton
campus to publicly unveil the
vehicle and to pay tribute
to the Unicorn Children's
Foundation for the gift. Re-
presentatives from the Uni-

corn Foundation, including
its executive director and
director of programs Sharon
Alexander, were in atten-
dance along with FAU Inte-
rim President John Pritchett,
FAU CARD administrators,
College of Education Dean
Valerie Bristor and members
of FAU's division of Uni-
versity Advancement.
"Since our founding in 1995,
the Unicorn Children's Foun-
dation has been dedicated
to supporting programs for
children with neurological
disabilities and communica-
tion disorders such as autism,
attention deficit disorder and
dyslexia. We are tremen-
dously drawn to FAU CARD
and all it has to offer," said
Alexander.
"The van will travel through-
out the region to assess chil-
dren at risk, many of whom
are from traditionally un-
derserved areas," she said.
"It will also be stationed at
schools and at community
events, such as health fairs,
to provide teacher train-
ing and to promote autism
awareness. With this mo-
bile clinic, FAU CARD will
be able to approach those
families who would other-
wise be trapped by physical,

behind Boca Center. Organi-
zers hope to reach the $8,500
mark through this event.
But Ryan doesn't plan
to end there. She's hoping
eventually to raise a total
of $25,000 to cover a full
"Free the Children"Adopt-A-
Village project. If she and
her colleagues can raise that
amount, her parents, Darin
and Debbie Engelhardt, have
pledged to match it. The En-
gelhardts will then travel to
Sikirar to watch the dream
unfold.
Actually, the entire Engel-
hardt family is involved with
the project. Younger sis-


ter Julia, age 9, has raised
$1,200 and even 5-year-old
sister Jayden has collected a
jar full of cash $100 in all
-for the cause.
Ryan said she wanted to get
involved in a community ef-
fort, and picked Canada-based
"Free the Children" after re-
searching 50 charities. "Free
The Children" empowers
youngsters in North America
to take action to improve the
lives of fellow children over-
seas, says the organization's
website.
It notes that "international
projects, led by our Adopt-a-
Village program, have brought
more than 500 schools and
water projects to communi-


language and economic bar-
riers."
Also honored at the lun-
cheon was FAU benefac-
tor Marleen Forkas, whose
pledge of $10,000, made
in memory of her husband
Harold Forkas, will provide
multiple-year support of the
van's operating costs.
FAU CARD friends Glen
and Tricia Stein were the
first to address the issue of
the van's upkeep with their
gift of $5,000 made in 2009.
A pledge of $5,000 from Joe
and Fran Eppy will be used
to produce educational and
collateral materials for pu-
blic distribution.
"I am excited that my gift
will help get this mobile as-
sessment clinic to where it
is needed most," said For-
kas. "The van will extend
FAU CARD's presence in
Palm Beach County and the
Treasure Coast and in doing
so will provide parents with
information and appropriate
resources. This is a cause
that touches me deeply it
resonates in my heart. I hope
that when people in the com-
munity know that the van is
coming, they will see it as an
opportunity for evaluation
and a step toward possible
intervention."

ties around the world."
"Young people have the big-
gest role," noted Ryan. "It's
run by kids. We have over a
million activists."
The Engelhardts are clear-
ly proud of their children.
Mother Debbie said she pro-
vides transportation, when
needed, and the Pine Crest
chapter meets weekly at the
Engelhardt home.
The community is also proud.
Salon Blu is helping out by
selling 500 red Kenyan hair
extensions for $10 each, with
all proceeds benefiting the
students' effort. Also, the Bo-
ca Marriott declared the Pine
Crest chapter of "Free the
Children" as its Charity of
the Month.

Well, the second quclitiou is
easy to answer.
"Rotary is the oldest service
organization." said Leo Phil-
lips, district governor of Dis-

clubs from Boca Raron to Ti-
tusville. "It began in Chicago
in 1905. Today, it has 1.2

is 'Scr ice Abovc Sel I'".
The purpose ofeach club is to
bring tuoelhicr business and
professional leaders to pro-
vide humanitarian service,
encourage high ethical stan-
dards in all vocations, and
help build good% ill and peia-
cc in the world.
Boca Raton has five Rotary
clubs and DUelr. Beach has
two. Phillips is a member of
the Rotary Club of Delray
Beach. There are 51 clubs in


thedistrict.
While all Rotary Clibs work
igt Iher,.c each one has itsown
set of projects. In ihe RoBa:

example, all seven clubs are
involved in -"1c di iiihin ion of
food to the elderly and needy
that is part of the "Angel
Food" program at Victory
Christian Church.
The last Saturday of each
month, volunteer Rotarians

food and deliver them to tho-
se in need.

I was listening to a radio
show the other day when the
talkmeister said, "Journal-
ism is dead." He went on
to imply that he, along with
other talk show hosts with
no journalism training, were
now THE place to turn for
truth in the newsgathering
field.
This hurt. I've spent almost
40 years in the newspaper
field. And, unfortunately, it
doesn't have the clout it had
when I entered it in 1971.
But to ignore journalists
in favor of talk show hosts
- who are actually enter-
tainers, not formal news
gatherers is a disservice.
Particularly now, when
newspaper readership is
down, and many people turn
to electronic gizmos to get
their news.
There's nothing wrong with
getting news electronically.
It's instantaneous. Often,
you can follow an event as it
happens. Even the Boca Ra-
ton Tribune has a website for
on-the-spot coverage.
Unfortunately, talk radio -
once the bastion of trained
journalists like Edward
R. Murrow, Chet Huntley
and David Brinkley has
evolved into an outlet for
conservative or liberal blah-
blah. It's OK to listen, but
take it all with just a few


grains of salt.
Journalism Scholarship
Having said that, it makes
me proud to announce that
the Gold Coast PR Coun-
cil, the largest independent
group of PR, marketing and
communications profession-
als in South Florida, is offer-
ing a $1,000 scholarship to
a local college or university
student majoring in public
relations, communications
and/or journalism.
Applicants must be full-time
college students currently
enrolled in an accredited
Florida college or university
and majoring in communi-
cations, journalism, public
relations or a related media
field.
The submission deadline
is July 16, 2010. For more
information, including how
to apply, visit hiip .
goldcoastprcouncil.com/,
and click on scholarship in-
formation.
Texas Turmoil
A few weeks ago, I wrote
about the ruckus being
caused by a proposal to build
a hotel near Boca Raton.
This was a surprise to me,
until I found that the contro-
versial hotel was proposed
near a subdivision outside
Galveston, Texas, called
Boca Raton, and not here in
South Florida.


Apparently, hundreds of
people have been protesting
the hotel since the project
was first proposed in No-
vember.
Well, as it turns out, the plan-
ning and zoning commission
in the town of Friendswood,
Texas, rejected site plans for
the hotel, saying they were
not in compliance with city
code regarding landscaping
and lighting.
That is such a Boca Raton
(Florida) response.
Anyway, it seems the owners
of the hotel are going to take
the plans back to the draw-
ing board and redraft them.
And the beat goes on.
Rhode Island Boca
connection
Here's a bit of information
for New Englanders like my
wife and me. It's a Rhode
Island item with a Boca Ra-
ton twist.
The Providence Journal re-
ports that former Johnston,
R.I., Mayor William R.
Macera, a native of that com-
munity and a former pastor
who left the priesthood and
taught college students be-
fore serving as mayor for
eight years, recent passed
away at age 70. He had been
living in Boca Raton for the
past year.
Rhode Island Gov. Don Car-
cieri ordered all state flags to


be flown at half-staff in his
honor.
Mr. Macera left office in
January 2007 due to health
problems. But he did leave
a legacy. He eliminated an
$18 million budget deficit
that he inherited when he
took office. He also changed
the community's municipal
hiring policy to put greater
emphasis on professional
candidates.
His funeral was held last
week at St. Rocco's Church
in Johnston.
Our sincere condolences to
his family.

About the new Arizona law:

God is always so good with me. His care
preparing my life is always amazing. In
my Middle School years and in all of
my time in High School, I was very ac-
tive in student politics. Also I was one
of the writers of a student newspaper in
Smy city. One of the many differences
between my papers at that time and my
paper today is, at that time, some newspapers were illegal in
Brazil due to the dictatorial regime of the country. I used to
write my articles and when I was to -..l.miii" them, I would
have to go to the comer of a street and wait for the editor to
quickly come by and take the paper containing my article
from my hand and disappear from sight. The paper used to
be distributed with a lot of fear of the regime and because of
this, I never ever used my name in any of my articles..
I lived in fear and felt the pressure of not having the right of
free speech and sometimes, the rights of free will. Thank God
these days are over and it's part of the past in my country.
I understand how hard it is for some people to understand
this in the USA, thanks to our founding fathers and a lot of
soldiers that fought for our freedom.
On the other hand, we need to try and understand others by
trying to walk a mile in their shoes or "have their skin". Try
to understand what happened with them and try to under-
stand what they need.
Immigration is not a new issue for the world. I bet most of
you don't know that even Americans were immigrants once.
We have a city in Brazil that was founded by American im-
migrants after the Civil War..


-- THOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER -
Douglas Heizer

The actual immigration law currently being proposed for
Arizona is not only unjust but completely obsolete and it
wasa even before the Reagan era. To summarize my fears I
will reprint below a very famous poem written for someone
who lived the most ashamed moment of modern human his-
tory. Let's pray (and ask our congressional representatives)
to bring a solution upon us before worse things happen.

"First, they came for the Communists, but Iwas not a Com-
munist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Social-
ists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither so I did not
speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew

On The Road :

Since the last edition we have kept the business rolling....
New computers and software, new distribution points, more
subscriptions online and by mail and a lot of phone calls and
e-mail from our readers.
I had dinner at Mar-A-Lago with Dr. Ingrid McConville from
Gordon & Donner and it was a very good moment and new
opportunities are coming soon.
I met Barry Epstein, Ed Marshall and Bernie Schaffer last
week for lunch as part of "menu" West Boca Chamber, and a
couple of joint projects are in the offing.
Talking about West Boca Chamber, Maureen Kelly and
I went to the last "Happy Hour" promoted for this active
chamber.


Easy way...

It is easy for one of my customers make me their customer!
If you have any doubt about this, try to place an ad with us!
This is right, this is how I personally have seen business.
Why not support our local businesses? Why not support
my customers? I learned this with my Dad and I can bet he
learned it from my Grandpa. For years wherever we drove,
Exxon was the gas station we used, and I keep doing most of
my business there just because we owned an Exxon gas sta-
tion. My Dad use to teach me that we need to support "our
company." Same thing with the grocery store. We shopped
there, and the employees brought their cars to our shop for
maintenance.
Our network of friends and business will always know who
our business friends are.
Dr. Bryee, Mizner Park Veterinary Clinic, we will make an
appointment for our boxer Dixie soon.

vices anytime soon!

Columnists


As a pastor, I often hear
people imply that the Bible
is "irrelevant, out-dated and
of little value to people of
the 21st century." I would be
careful to remind such indi-
viduals that the Bible is the
most published, most copied
book in the world.
The Bible was writ-
ten over a 1500 year
span (from 1400 B.C
to A.D. 100); over 40
generations by over
40 authors from nu-
merous walks of life
(i.e.-kings, peasants, Pr.
philosophers, fishermen, po-
ets, statesmen, scholars). It
was written in different plac-
es (i.e.-wildemess, dungeon,
palaces); at different times
(i.e.- war, peace); in differ-
ent moods (i.e. heights of
joy, depths of despair); on
three continents (Asia, A-
frica, and Europe); in three
languages (Hebrew, Aramaic,
and Greek). These facts alone
make it one of the most
unique books in the world.
Additionally, the Bible speaks
on numerous subjects, other
than religious I might add,
and provides a wealth of prac-
tical knowledge. Scriptures
provide profound insights
into matters of finances, fa-
mily, relationships and bu-
siness practices to name just
a few. Consider the following
concepts for achieving suc-
cess...
Successful people master
their moods. They live by
their commitments, not their
emotions. People who do the
right thing, even when they
don't feel like it, accomplish
most of what gets done in
the world! "A person with-
out self-control is like a city
with broken-down walls"
(i'-.i.,l"- 25:28 NLT).
Successful people watch their
words. They put their minds
in gear before opening their
mouths. "Those who control
their tongue will have a long
life; opening your mouth can
ruin .. i,. ii,,.- (Proverbs
13:3 NLT).
Successful people restrain
their reactions. How much
can you withstand before you


lose your "cool," before your
emotions take control? "Sen-
sible people control their
temper; they earn respect by
overlooking wrongs" (Prov-
erbs 19:11 NLT).
Successful people stick
to their schedules. If you
don't determine how you
will spend your time,
you can be sure that
others will decide for
you! "Live life with
a due sense of res-
ponsibility...make
the best use ofyour
and time (Ephesians
5:15-16).
Successful people manage
their money. They learn to
live on less than what they
make and they invest the dif-
ference. The value of a bud-
get is that it tells your money
where you want it to go,
rather than wondering where
it went! "The wise man saves
for the future, but the fool-
ish man spends whatever he
gets" (i'.,i,. i/.s 21:20).
Successful people maintain
their health. By taking care
of themselves physically, they
can accomplish more and
enjoy their achievements.
"Each ofyou should control
his own body, keeping it pure
and :,. .ini,, it with respect"
(1 Thessalonians 4:4).
Some of the greatest people
in history considered the
reading of Scriptures a vi-
tal part of their life...
George Washington: "It is
impossible to rightly govern
the world without the Bible."
Sir Isaac Newton: "We ac-
count the Scriptures of God
to be the most sublime phi-
losophy. I find more sure
marks of authenticity in the
Bible than in any profane
history whatsoever"
Charles Dickens: "It is the
best Book that ever was or
ever will be in the world..."
"The only difference be-
tween who you are today
and who you will be tomor-
row is in the books you read
and the people you meet..."
Read the Bible and learn
the quality of real success.

statements when they arrive.
During the last three years,
our portfolio has taken a hit
onpaper but is coming back,
but the value of our home on
the Intracoastal has gone
down about 40 percent.
From time to time during
our married lives, I :,. l,,ht
that he was seeing other
women, but I never had real
evidence. I did not want to
rock the boat while our kids
were growing up, and never
had any real proof until
last week, when I received
a long letter from a woman
who had worked for him for
many years, but had recently
beenfired.
She described their relation-
ship in great detail. She told
me about money he had giv-
en her off the books, jewelry
he had bought for her and
their regular schedule of
extra curricular sex. I con-
fronted him, and he did not
deny the relationship. Under
the circumstances, there is
i,. ili,, that I could do, so
I asked him to leave, and he
did.
I don't know u,' i1ie.- about
divorce law. Can you tell me
what to expect? What hap-
pens in a divorce case? How
do I pick a lawyer what can
I do to get the best result?
How much will the divorce
cost?
Answer: You have asked the
right questions, which ge-
nerally come up during an
initial conference with a new
client.
Your choice of an attorney is
very important. Choose an
experienced specialist, who-
se practice has been limited


who often practices in the
court in which your case will
be filed, and has a good re-
lationship with the judges of
the court.
If you know an attorney or
have had a friend recently
divorced, ask their opinions
about attorneys they have


known, who they used, or
who their husbands or wives
had used. Often times we get
referrals from people against
whom we have litigated.
Some attorneys have repu-
tations of being h!,".
Some times l.i.isL" bite
those closest to them, their
own clients, when it comes
to fees and advice.
Try to set aside your emo-
tions; never easy under the
circumstances you describe.
Angry people make bad de-
cisions for the wrong rea-
sons. Try to reach a resolu-
tion that is based upon sound
economic principles, and
complete knowledge of the
facts. Do not base your fu-
ture on speculation.
To the lawyer, the process


is somewhat like putting to-
gether a jigsaw puzzle with
the pieces turned over. He or
she has met you, and heard
your story. However, to ad-
vise you completely, discov-
ery of your marital history
and of your family's assets
and liabilities has to be un-
dertaken. This happens at
the beginning of the case in
the discovery process.

Michael H. Gora has been cer-
tified by The Board of Legal
Specialization and Education
of The Florida Bar as a spe-
cialist in matrimonial law, and

rary treatments, including
the use of commercially pro-
duced fillers or autologous

worked for some people;
however, they have often led

they often require repetitive

The great news is that the

surface that reduces the

A huge benefit of this treat-


ment is that it is available in
a variety of sizes to achieve
customized results for indi-

This procedure can be per-

anesthesia. The mouth and
lips are locally anesthetized;
and then two small incisions
are made in the comers of
the mouth. The implant is
then passed through a tunnel
in the lip and then centered.
The process is then repeated
for the other lip and the in-
cisions are closed using ab-
sorbable suture. The entire
process can take less than
thirty minutes and normal
activity may be resumed the
following day.
Although PermalipTM is per-

easily reversible should you
wish to return to your origi-

a board-certified plastic sur-
geon to see if this procedure
is right for you.

Planning You Should


Consider Now


These are difficult times.
The ,c ip cni now acknowl-
edge that we are in a reces-
sion and that we have been
so for some time.
Consumer confi-
dence is low. As a
result many of us
are concerned, won-
dering what plan-
ning we should do
now, if any.
For the vast major- Barry S
ity of Americans, planning
is not discretionary. These
individuals continue to have
- or perhaps for the first time
have personal concerns that
they need to address now
because these concerns are
unrelated to the economy. In
fact, some of these concerns
may even be made worse by
our current economic situa-
tion.
In addition, for anyone who
may be subject to federal or
state estate tax in the future,
unusual circumstances have
created a "perfect planning
storm" that will not last long.
This newsletter addresses
some of the planning needs
unrelated to the economy
and discusses strategies that
create the biggest planning
opportunities today.
Planning Needs Unrelated
to the Economy
Many planning needs are un-
related to the economy. They
include:
* Disability and retirement
planning;
* Special needs planning;
* Beneficiary protection
planning (for example, pro-
tection from divorce, credi-
tors and/or perhaps the ben-
eficiaries themselves); and
* Second marriage and
"blended family" protection.
These planning needs are
often more critical for those
with fewer assets than for
those with more wealth.
Disability Planning
According to the Family
Caregiver Alliance and re-
cent MetLife Mature Market
Study, of those Americans
currently age 65 and older:
* 43% will need nursing
home care;
* 25% will spend more than
a year in a nursing home;
* 9% will spend more than 5
years in a nursing home; and


* The average stay in a nurs-
ing home is more than 2.5
years.
Nursing home costs are in-
creasing much faster
than the inflation
rate would imply.
Thus, many of us
quite appropriately
are very worried
about how we will
pay for that kind of
iegel care if we need it.
lannig Tip: Careful con-
sideration of how to pay for
long-term care is critical for
most individuals.
Also of concern to many
people is who will provide
long-term care and whether
those caregivers will care for
us in the way we desire. For
many, there is a strong de-
sire to stay at home as long
as possible. For others, the
companionship found in an
assisted living facility makes
that choice preferable. Still
others need care that can-
not be provided at home or
only at a prohibitive cost.
And, not surprisingly, these
goals often change over time
and with changing circum-
stances.
Planning Tip: A trust that
sets forth your current, care-
fully thought-out disability
objectives is the best way
to ensure that your planning
meets your personal goals
and objectives.
Special Needs Planning
Special needs planning is
another area unrelated to the
economy. According to the
2002 U.S. census:
* 51.2 million people report-
ed having a disability;
* 13-16% of families have a
child with special needs;
* Autism occurs every 1 in
150 births and between 1
and 1.5 million Americans
have an Autism spectrum
disorder.
Failure to properly plan for
a person with special needs
can have disastrous conse-
quences, especially if the
person is receiving govern-
ment benefits.
Planning Tip: A Special
Needs Trust that incorpo-
rates specific care provisions
is a critical component of the

Nix the naysayers and enjoy life including polo

t's a crazy time of the
year. Iranian Cleric Ho-
jatoleslam Kazem Sedighi
said that earthquakes are
caused by scantily clad wo-
men (look out, Boca Raton)
and famous scientist Ste-
phen Hawking believes that
extraterrestrial life almost
certainly exists and that we
should be extremely cau-
tious about interacting with
them.
There is one person, how-
ever, who has managed to
circumvent all of these nay-


sayers. His name is Michael
Fischman and he lives in
Boca Raton. Fischman, a
former account executive
with Ogilvy & Mather, is
now president of the Art of
Living Foundation in the
US.
The Art of Living Founda-
tion recently sponsored.
An Evening of Wisdom &
Meditation with Sri Sri Ravi
Shankar at the Westin Dip-
lomat Hotel. This holy man
from India has a large fol-
lowing all over the world


and his message is one that
is perfectly suited for the
times we live in. "To uplift
yourself, you need to stop
and think about what is hap-
pening in your mind. Intro-
spection uplifts us," said the
gentle man with the twin-
kling eyes.
Fischman agrees. "Every-
body is looking for spiri-
tual modalities to help them
handle their mind and emo-
tions. If you have negative
thoughts in your mind you
don't experience your true
nature." Fischman was very
sincere about the changes in
his life since meeting Sri Sri
Ravi Shankar. "I am more
confident, centered, compas-
sionate and loving."
If you long for serenity in
your life, the answer is med-
itation (I agree) and to watch
your breathing. Breathing
techniques (such as Pranay-
ana) can help change emo-
tions. Also important are
the three golden rules for
meditation: "I do nothing, I
want nothing and I am noth-
ing." Well said. If you want
more information about their


events and courses contact
them at http://artofliviing.
org/fl or call 954-826-3190.
One thing about spiritual
pursuits is that nothing usu-
ally ends up being some-
thing important!
On the other side of earthly
existence (in Wellington)
was the final polo match at
the International Polo Club.
This exuberant event brings
out the best of breed in the
horse category (for both hu-
mans and thoroughbreds)
and is held every year to
determine the winner of the
US Open Championship.
This year Crab Orchard
won over the Audi team by
a score of 13 to 8.
If you've never been to a
polo match (and a final one
at that) you're in for a big
treat. The fans are horse
lovers with a hedonistic
bent for fun in the sun.
Unfortunately it rained at
the final match, but every-
one seemed to weather the
weather in pretty good spir-
its (bottled or otherwise).
There was a large tent (The
Nespresso Grande Pavil-


ion) on one side of the field
hosted by Bistrot Bagatelle
of NYC and on the other
side were stadium seats, the
clubhouse and other comfy
ways to view the action.
At the Nespresso Pavilion
excitement reigned supreme
with a full scale brunch
(with enough food to feed a
third world nation), a fash-
ion display by upper crust
fashion maven Tory Burch,
a wine tasting by Whole
Foods in Wellington and
people watching that rivals
NYC.
There were men in yellow
pants with dark blue blazers
that looked divine (I know it
sound cheesy but it wasn't)
and young women in halter
dresses with large sinamay
straw hats.
The divot stomp at half time
(where everyone goes out on
the field for champagne and
ice-cream) is one of the most
animated people events at
the games, but it was cut
short by the heavy down-
pour. Men in trucks tossed
out toy horses while doling
out champagne in plastic

flutes. But, Mother Nature in-
tervened and had most of us
running for shelter (in fancy
dresses and high heels) and
back to our posts.
If you want to experience this

horse (with camaraderie that
is unparalleled) head out to
Wellington during the polo
season from December to
April.

tour Boca, meet city leaders

at Boca Comedy Club -_ ByDalelVLKing


By Dale Smith

Appearing Saturday night,
April 17th at Boca Raton's
New York Comedy Club
was a fresh South Florida
based comic named Anna
Collins. Anna, who cur-
rently resides in Fort Lau-
derdale, emceed both the
early and the late shows and
was the opening act featur-
ing Latino stand-up Angel
Salazar and two other co-
medians.
Delightfully entertaining,
Anna kept the audience
laughing with her witty
brand of South Florida
comedy which included a
mix of jokes about our re-
tirees (heading for the Early
Bird Dinner), those lizards
and enormous palmetto


bugs we accept as pets in our
homes, the French Canadian
men in their thongs frolick-
ing on our beaches, and the
insane overuse locally of
plastic surgery, especially
the lip collagen. She has a
great routine about the His-
panics in Miami, and their
refusal to accept the English
language. Actually no ethnic
group was safe. In her reco-
gnizable Boston accent,
Miss Collins presented her
humorous views on why re-
lationships between men and
women are next to impos-
sible to survive. Her bright
personality shone through
as she had fun improvising
with the audience. A young
guy with those ridiculous
baggy pants had a few shots
sent his way. Anna's familiar


stories and stage presence
gave the room a fresh vibe
of comfort and laughter as
she anchored the show.
Anna Collins is also a wri-
ter, her 2008 book; "A View
from a Broad" is very funny
with excellent observa-
tions about such topics as
Infomercials and Romance.
She has appeared in many
Comedy Clubs including the
MGM Grand in Las Vegas,
Dangerfield's in New York
City and at the Comedy
Corner in West Palm Beach
and Uncle Funny's in Davie.

BOCA RATON The Wom-
en's Golf Association at
Royal Palm Yacht & Coun-
try Club in Boca Raton
held its annual Rally for the
Cure golf tournament March
12, raising $6,435 to ben-
efit Susan G. Komen for the
Cure.
"We are grateful to our golf-
ers for all their support" said
WGA President-Elect Pattie
Damron, who takes over as
president April 22. "Despite
the incredibly rainy weather,
we had 52 players turn out
for the tournament a field
dressed in pink in honor of
Komen for the Cure. They
all deserve to be commend-
ed for their remarkable com-
mitment."
Komen is a global non-profit


dedicated to eradicating
breast cancer through re-
search. The organization, the
world's largest grassroots
network of breast cancer
survivors and activists, has
invested nearly $1.5 billion
to find a Cure since Komen
was founded in 1982.
Funds at the Rally for the
Cure golf tournament were
raised through registration
fees paid by participants.
The WPA also held a 50-50
raffle, won by Lori Glover.
Glover donated her $1,100
in winnings in honor of the
WPA President Vicki Hull,
56, who recently passed
away, to the Enrichment
Fund of Grace Community
Church, the beneficiary of
memorial donations for
Hull. A matching $1,100
from the raffle was donated
to Komen.
The Rally for the Cure tour-
nament is one of several
events Royal Palm Yacht


& Country Club holds each
year. The WPA also collects
toys each Christmas season
for Spirit of Giving, a joint
effort by several Palm Beach
County charitable agencies.
The country club's Ladies
Nine Hole Golf Group re-
cently held its initial 1st An-
nual Play for P.I.N.K. tour-
nament to benefit the Breast
Cancer Research Founda-
tion.
Celebrating its 50th year,
the Royal Palm Yacht &
Country Club has been an
elegant tradition among the
elite clubs of South Florida.
As one of the few private,
invitation-only clubs in the
country, Royal Palm Yacht
& Country Club boasts a
Jack Nicklaus Signature golf
course and no residency re-
quirements.

Theatre


melds


humor with social issues in


comic play, "Distracted"


Melanoma May

Prevention, Early Detection, Screening and Diagnosis



THURSAY THURSAY WENSA
MA 6 MA1 MY1


By Skip Sheffield


BOCA RATON Caldwell
Theatre Company continues
its exploration of contempo-
rary issues with a dramatic
comedy, "Distracted," run-
ning through May 16 at 7901
N. Federal Highway, Boca
Raton.
Playwright Lisa Loomer
has taken a challenge and
formed it into a comedy that
provokes and educates.
That challenge is ADHD
(Attention Deficit Hyperac-
tivity Disorder), a common
disorder that seems to have
reached epidemic status.
ADHD (also called ADD)
is most often diagnosed in
young boys, though it can
occur in girls and adult men
and women.
Lisa Loomer was inspired
to design a play that is both
entertaining and educational
- oh yes, and quite funny.
Nine-year-old Jesse Cara
(Brian Inerfield) isn't the
only "Distracted" person in
this play.
Dad (Stephen G. Anthony) is
always doing several things
at once: talking, texting or
playing a laptop video game,
all while watching televi-
sion.
This is very frustrating for
Mama (Laura Turnbull),
who has to deal with Jesse's
outbursts, disrespectful atti-


tude, foul mouth and inabili-
ty to focus on tasks as simple
as getting dressed for school.
Reading between the lines
we can guess that if Dad had
been born today, he would
have been diagnosed with
ADHD. Because he was an
ants-in-the-pants, hyperactive
boy, Dad feels it is all per-
fectly normal.
In desperation, Mama visits
a series of "experts" who not
surprisingly, offer conflicting
advice.
Doctors are a rich source of
humor, as the doctor's office
experience is universal.
Director Clive Cholerton has
cast some of South Florida's
best actors to play these
characters.
It warms the heart to see
Kim Cozort back on the
Caldwell stage after she and
her husband Ken Kay were
in "exile" (but a very good
kind), in Blowing Rock, NC
for nine years.
Cozort plays three charac-
ters: imperious Dr. Waller,
Jessie's frazzled teacher
Mrs. Holly and New Yawk
neighbor Sherry, and she
gives a distinct comic spin to
each one.
Likewise Lela Elam is the
officious Dr. Zavalla as well
as a neighbor, Carolyn and a
nurse.
Playwright/actor Michael
McKeever takes the comic


cake as three increasingly
eccentric doctors and a
fourth wall-breaking actor
with ADD.
Versatile Kim Ostrenko is
a neighbor friend Vera and
does yeoman duty as a wait-
ress and a UPS delivery per-
son.
Finally, there is Jesse's teen-
age babysitter Natalie (Nikki
Bromberg), a girl with some
pretty serious disorders of
her own.
Lots of serious issues are
raised between the yucks:
holistic therapy vs. prescrip-
tion drugs, psychological
counseling, the role of infor-
mation overload and media
bombardment and the sheer
frenzy of modern life.
There are no easy answers. I
came away with the thought we
should not be too quick to med-
icate just to shut a kid up and
make him or her docile. Par-
ents should exercise tolerance
and patience and above all, pay
more attention to their kids.
You may come away with
a different conclusion, and
Caldwell Theatre is making it
easier by providing a series of
talk-backs with the director,
cast and experts, and a Lunch
and Learn April 29.
Tickets are $34-$55 (students
$10). Call 561-241-7432 or

One Thousand Ocean condominiums Cornell Companies,

Decorators Unlimited) in the model residence at the new One Thousand
Ocean building.


BOCA RATON One Thou-
sand Ocean, the newly com-
pleted oceanfront condomini-
um in Boca Raton, welcomed
hundreds of invited guests
to two consecutive events
in early April to showcase a
new furnished model as well
as the modem building's
amenities
The four-bedroom, four and
one-half bath, 4,300-square-
foot model residence, which
features ocean-inspired in-
teriors by The Decorator's
Unlimited, was very well
received by visitors, said or-
ganizers. From there, they
continued on to the private
tropical pool deck with ca-
banas directly overlooking
the Atlantic and the Boca Ra-
ton Inlet.
Guests were also invited to
visit the Ocean Club, which


encompasses the building's
amenities exclusive to resi-
dents. The lobby, lakefront
lounge and multi-purpose
room attracted visitors, who
also previewed the state-of-
the-art fitness center with its
aerobics, yoga and Pilates
rooms, cardio/free-weight
and training area, spa treat-
ment suite, and steam and
sauna rooms.
"One Thousand Ocean has
demonstrated record-setting
sales and is currently 67
percent sold," said William
Yahn, managing director for
Corcoran Sunshine Market-
ing Group. "And that's be-
fore we showcased our fur-
nished model. This speaks
volume for the location of
the building, its unique de-
sign and floor plans, as well
as the level of features and


finishes."
"Everyone seemed to mar-
vel at the building's mod-
em architecture, which is in
keeping with the Boca Raton
Resort & Club's redesigned
Boca Beach Club, right next
door," added Jamie Telchin,
president of development
for LXR Luxury Resorts.
"They also understood that
the prime location gives
residents of One Thousand
Ocean immediate proximity
and availability to the ser-
vices and amenities of the
resort, which is part of the
Waldorf Astoria Collection,
should they choose to be a
member of the resort's club.
This isn't just another new
condominium building. It is
an extraordinary resort life-
style opportunity."
Commenting further, Tel-
chin noted, "Boaters travers-
ing the Boca Raton Inlet can't
help but notice the iconic
building that is now at the tip
of the private peninsula. With
its completion this February,
One Thousand Ocean has be-
come a true landmark at the
gateway to this world-class
city."
One Thousand Ocean en-
compasses 52 one- and two-
story beach villas, residences
and penthouses replete with
ocean, Intracoastal and city
views, terraces with jetted
plunge pools and outdoor


kitchens, private elevator
lobbies and private two-car
garages.
Residences average some
4,000 square feet under air
plus about 1,200 square feet
of outdoor space. They are
priced from $3 million to
more than $15 million.
The Sales & Design Center is
located at 725 S. Ocean Bou-
levard.


agree to merger


worth $685 million


BOCA RATON Boca
Raton-based GEO Group,
a private provider of cor-
rectional, detention, and
residential treatment ser-
vices to federal, state and
local government agencies,
and Cornell Companies, a
private provider of correc-
tions, treatment and educa-
tional services outsourced
by federal, state and local
governmental agencies, plan
to merge, says a news re-
lease from The Geo Group.
It said their boards of direc-
tors have approved a defini-
tive merger agreement in
which The GEO Group will
acquire Comell for stock
and/or cash at an estimated


enterprise value of $685
million based on the closing
prices of both companies'
stocks on April 16, 2010,
including the assumption of
some $300 million in Cor-
nell debt, excluding cash.
Under the terms of the
agreement, stockholders of
Cornell will have the op-
tion to elect to receive either
1.3 shares of GEO com-
mon stock for each share of
Cornell common stock or
an amount of cash consid-
eration equal to the greater
of the fair market value of
one share of GEO common
stock plus $6.00 or the fair
market value of 1.3 shares
of GEO common stock.


Lynn University names Glanzer


as new PR director


Eikl
BOCA RATON Lynn Uni-
versity has announced that
Joshua Glanzer, an award-
winning communications
professional with more than
14 years of experience span-
ning several industries, is the
university's new director of
public relations.
In this role, Glanzer will
serve as the university's offi-
cial spokesperson in addition
to leading the university's
internal, external and social
media efforts.
Glanzer's experience in
the field of marketing com-
munications includes in-
ternational media relations
campaigns, publications pro-


duction and targeted, hyper
local community out reach
efforts.
After receiving his bach-
elor's degree in public re-
lations from University of
Florida's School of Journal-
ism in 1995, he moved to
Miami and accepted a posi-
tion at a small, start-up mar-
keting communications firm,
Brigham Communications.
His work in international is-
sues started in 1998 when he
joined Food For The Poor
(FFP), a South Florida-based
international development
organization, as the media
relations manager. Glanzer
planned and executed sev-
eral media tours through
some of the poorest regions
of Haiti, Jamaica, Honduras
and Nicaragua.
After moving to New York
City in 2001, Glanzer served
as the director of communi-
cations for the International
Longevity Center (ILC),
a healthcare policy center
affiliated with the Mount
Sinai School of Medicine.
Glanzer's performance con-


vinced ILC's senior leader-
ship to keep him on as a con-
sultant more than a year after
he moved back to Florida.
Once settled in Florida,
Glanzer served as the direc-
tor of communications and
marketing at the American
Red Cross, Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter. He
headed an aggressive com-
munications program that
required coordinating the
activities of department staff
members, student interns,
a public relations firm, and
dozens of volunteers during
the busy 2005 and 2006 hur-
ricane seasons.
In Glanzer's most recent
position at Jones Edmunds,
a Florida-based civil engi-
neering firm, he secured the
organization's first national
print news story, in The Wall
Street Journal, and helped
bring the firm national in-
dustry recognition through
a campaign that captured
several technical engineer-
ing awards-the most the
firm has ever received for a
single project.

The Boca Raton Tribune BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL


GEO Group ofBoca continued from page 16


"This merger represents a
compelling strategic fit for
both of our companies and
positions us well to meet the
increasing demand for cor-
rectional, detention and resi-
dential treatment facilities
and services," said George
C. Zoley, chairman and chief
executive officer of GEO.
"The combination of our
two companies creates a
company with revenues of
approximately $1.5 billion,
enhanced scale, diversifica-
tion, and complementary
service offerings. GEO has
a successful track record
of integrating acquisitions,
and we are confident in our
ability to implement the in-
dustry's best practices across
the combined company."
"At the same time," he add-
ed, "we expect to achieve
revenue growth opportu-
nities and annual cost ef-
ficiencies of $12-15 mil-
lion to enhance long-term
value for our shareholders."
James E. Hyman, Cornell's
chairman, president, and
chief executive officer, said,
"The board of directors and I
believe this strategic combi-
nation with GEO will result
in an industry-leading plat-
form that will create signifi-
cant value for the sharehold-
ers of both companies. The
combined enterprise should
have the scale, geographic


reach and operating lever-
age to achieve meaningful
cost synergies, grow revenue
and increase profitability."

The merger is expected to
close in the third quarter of
2010, subject to the approv-
al of the issuance of GEO
common stock by GEO's
shareholders, approval of
the transaction by Comell's
stockholders and federal
regulatory agencies, as well
as the fulfillment of other
customary conditions."
The combined company
will manage and/or own 97
correctional and detention
facilities with a total design
capacity of approximately
76,000 beds and 32 behav-
ioral health facilities with
a total design capacity of
approximately 5,000 beds.
Cornell's Adult Secure and
Adult Community-Based
divisions will be integrated
into GEO's existing U.S.
Corrections operating struc-
ture. Cornell's behavioral
health division, Abraxas
Youth & Family Services,
will be integrated with GEO
Care's behavioral health-
care services platform.
The statement from GEO
said the merger is ex-
pected to increase its total
annual revenues by ap-
proximately $400 million
to more than $1.5 billion.

ful way for businesses and
professionals to network
in order to serve the senior
citizens in our community."
Marlene Ross, director of
communications for WXEL,
the local PBS and NPR
station, added her congra-
tulations and said, "I wish
to commend Andres Gon-
zalez for organizing this
unique network group be-
cause there is a great need
for seniors and their fami-
lies to have a resource de-
dicated to their welfare."
The guest speaker was Laura
Jones of the Alzheimer Asso-

Laura discussed her "advo-
cacy victory" with the Social
Security Administration re-
garding her experiences with


her husband's early-onset Al-
zheimer diagnosis at age 50.
"Our organization will
be hosting speakers from
other non-profits in order

FAU's women's basketball

team looks to 2010-2011 season


"N Wt


BOCARATON -The Florida
Atlantic University women's
basketball team reached new
heights during the 2009-10
season. Head coach Chan-
cellor Dugan led her team
to 10 conference wins and
a fifth overall seed in the
Sun Belt Conference Tour-
nament, the most wins and
highest seed the Owls have
received since joining the
conference four seasons ago.
FAU's 14 overall victories
are also the most since the
program joined the Sun Belt.
"I was really excited for the
senior class to leave such
an outstanding mark on
this program," said Dugan.
"They took it from the A-
Sun and transitioned it to a
contender in the Sun Belt.
I'm proud of them."
Two of those seniors, Brit-
tany Bowe and Carla Stubbs,
both capped off their final
seasons by surpassing the
1,000-point mark in the
same game, on February
10, 2010 against Louisiana-
Lafayette.
The pair of seniors finished
their careers eighth and ninth
respectively on the FAU all-


time scoring list.
Bowe also received individ-
ual accolades, being named
to the third team all-confer-
ence in addition to being a
first team all-district aca-
demic All-American. The
Ocala native finished the
season leading the Owls in
minutes per game (33.3) and
second in the Sun Belt in as-
sists per game (4.8).
Despite having seven se-
niors depart the roster, FAU
will reload in 2010-11, add-
ing eight new players to the
mix.
New Players
"We filled all of our needs
with this recruiting class,"
said Dugan. Now it's going
to be up to the newcomers
and the returnees to gel and
become a team."
Among the returnees is
shooting guard Lyrell
Barfield. The junior college
transfer had a breakout sea-
son that included Sun Belt
Player of the Week honors
for her performance during
the week of 2/2-2/7.
The pure scorer recorded a
career-high 24 points in a
win at North Texas on Feb.

"Offensively, Josh shoots it

later. Barfield started 26 of
29 games in her first season
as an Owl and finished two
points ahead of Bowe for the
team scoring title with 356
points.
The other key returnee for
FAU is Teri Stamps, who ap-
peared in all 29 games and
finished the season ranked
3rd in the Sun Belt Confer-
ence in three-point shooting
(38-for-84, 45.2%).
With Stamps and Barfield
projected into the starting
five, FAU has three open
starting spots up for grabs
in preseason workouts this
summer and fall. With a lot
of holes, the incoming class
is a welcomed sight, with
eight players in total and a
vast spectrum of skill sets.
"We've got size, quickness,
shooting ability and defen-
sive ability all coming in,"
Dugan said.
One of FAU's biggest needs,
a point guard, will be filled
by Takia Brooks (5'6", Mi-
ami, FL/Lourdes Academy).
Brooks is the #236 ranked
player in the nation by the
Collegiate Girls Basketball
Report.
Up front, Vontrice Dennis,
April Goins, Shavonne Sey-
more are all junior college
transfers that will provide
an experience and athletic
front-court presence for FAU
on both ends of the floor.
Chaquera Kent, Alexis Park-
er, Kim Smith and Latavia
Dempsey are all incoming
freshman that round out the
class for FAU.

This summer, dozens of Bo-
ca Raton campers will again
head off for weeks of fun
and an incredible variety of
activities at beautiful Camp
Lindenmere in the Pocono
Mountains of Eastern Penn-
sylvania. Nestled on appro-
ximately 175 picturesque
acres in Henryville, Pa., the
Camp has been owned and
operated by Boca Raton
resident Mitch Garfinkel
since 2006. Mitch, who also
is an attorney and restaura-
teur, operates the Camp with
great detail spent on seeing
that the three hundred boys
and girls and the 100 staff-


ers are well taken care of in
a nurturing, learning envi-
ronment. The focus is on the
individual growth of each
child. Whether the kids stay
for three or six weeks, the
anticipation of the trip up
north consumes them and
their parents for the months
preceding the trip. The bags
are sent in advance and the
chaperones and the kids lea-
ve from Fort Lauderdale Air-
port on a flight to Newark for
the Boca Campers. They are
then taken by bus to Camp
Lindenmere where they em-
bark on an adventure of a
lifetime. Upon arrival, they
see the Camp's stone build-
ings, which were erected in


It's more about


the early 1900's and opened
as a Camp in 1935. The new,
country style cabins are lar-
ge and airy, complete with
electricity, indoor showers
and bathrooms. Each bunk
houses 8-12 campers super-
vised by 2-3 counselors. Fa-
mily style meals are served
in an alpine-type dining
room consisting of fresh
fruit, a salad bar, a potato
bar and a pasta bar. Mitch
brings in professional chefs
and kitchen staffs to ensure
all meals are fresh, tasty and
nutritious.
The Camp even features a
50's style Ice Cream par-
lor. The boys and girls are
thrilled when they see the
range of facilities offered.
These include a multi-pur-

--CRANK UP THE HEAT-
By Pedro Heizer
Miami Eliminated continued from page 24


Erik Spolestra of his head
coaching position" then I
would call any team in the
NBA that is willing to take a
failed product in Beasley. I
don't know if any of you know
this, contrary to popular be-
lief, Riley did try to trade Bea-
sley. There was a 3-Way in the
works with Utah and Phoenix.
Miami would have received
Amare Stoudemire, Phoenix
would have received Carlos
Boozer, and Utah would have
gotten Michael Beasley and
Miami's 1st round draft picks.
But the deal didn't go down
because Utah was reluctant in
taking Michael Beasley, right-
ly so. Now, we are stuck with
an underachiever that if he
does stay with Miami should
do nothing but rot on the
bench. What a waste of talent.
But, some college players just
aren't cut up for the NBA.
Now, people need to really
stop with the "Wade's last
game in Miami" non-sense.
We all know he isn't going
anywhere. Where would he
go? Try and say Chicago, I'll
shut you down with the front
office problems. Try Detroit,


I'll shut you down with
a team with a losing re-
cord and no chances for a
playoffs berth let alone a
championship. Where else
are all you Heat haters go-
ing to tell me he is going to
go? Just stop, you Bulls fan
are sad. You guys are hat-
ting on greatness. You are
mad that we have the best
in the world and you guys
were not able to snatch
him with the 7th pick and
ended up draft an under-
achiever in Kirk Hinrich.
So please, Chicago, do us
a favor, leave our superstar
alone and try to not make
your current superstar
(Rose) angry with the fact
he seems unappreciated.
As disappointed as some
as some fans are, I'm ex-
cited about this. The long
awaited summer of 2010
is finally upon us. It's the
time in which dynasties
will be made and when
Contenders this season be-
come weak.
I'm ready for the most ex-
citing offseason in recent
memory. Are you?

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

Dolphins trade down in

first round, select DE

Jared Odrick at No. 28


w -
It took a little longer than ex-
pected, but the Miami Dol-
phins finally a chose a player
in the first round of the draft.
After trading down from No.
12 to No. 28 that also landed
them linebacker Tim Dob-
bins from the Chargers, the
Dolphins used San Diego's
pick to select Penn State de-
fensive end Jared Odrick.
It was a questionable pick, to
be sure, but I'll get to that in
a minute. First, a breakdown
of the trade and some back-
ground info on the players
Miami acquired tonight.
The Trade
Dolphins receives:
* San Diego's first-round
pick i.11h overall used to
select Penn State defensive
end Jared Odrick)
* San Diego's second-round
pick (4oth overall)
* San Diego's fourth-round
pick (126th overall)
* Linebacker Tim Dobbins
San Diego receives:
* Miami's first-round pick
(12th overall used to select
Fresno State running back
Ryan Mathews)
* Miami's fourth-round pick
(110th overall)
* Miami's sixth-round pick
(173rd overall)
The Dolphins now have ten
picks in the 2010 NFL Draft,
including the one used to se-
lect Odrick. Their other picks
are:
* Round 2, Pick 40 (from Se-
attle through San Diego)
* Round 3, Pick 73
* Round 4, Pick 126 (from


San Diego)
* Round 5, Pick 145 (from
San Francisco)
* Round 6, Pick 174 (from
Washington)
* Round 6, Pick 179
* Round 7, Pick 212 (from
Kansas City)
* Round 7, Pick 219
* Round 7, Pick 252 (com-
pensatory selection)
Tim Dobbins
A first-team All-Big 12 se-
lection as a senior at Iowa
State, Dobbins was selected
by the San Diego Chargers
in the fifth round (151st
overall) of the 2006 NFL
Draft.
Dobbins (6-1, 246) appea-
red in all 32 games during
his first two seasons with
the Chargers, recording 39
tackles and a forced fumble
while primarily playing spe-
cial teams.
Moving into the starting li-
neup with eight starts in 16
games in 2008, Dobbins to-
taled a career-high 57 tack-
les, three forced fumbles,
one interception, and four
pass deflections.
As a top backup linebacker
behind starters Stephen Coo-
per and Brandon Siler in
2009, Dobbins racked up
55 tackles, a sack, a forced
fumble, an interception, and
a pass deflection.
A restricted free agent in
the 2010 offseason, Dobbins
was tendered a one-year con-
tract by the Chargers and re-

Marlins Must Change

The Way They Do

Business


This happened to be a typi-
cal Marlins offseason. The
Marlins spent no money on
Free Agents, and no arbi-
tration offers were made to
departing Free Agents. In
addition, a few salary dump
trades were made. It was
business as usual for the
Marlins. However, the good
news is that the Marlins gave
their franchise pitcher Josh
Johnson a four year contract
extension.
Also the team tried to sign
the top rated international
pitching prospect Arol-
dis Chapman to a five year
deal. Advanced scouts were
drooling all over this hyped
up prospect. I believe the
Josh Johnson signing and
the Aroldis Chapman con-
tract offer occurred as a re-
sult of Major League Base-
ball and the players Union
reprimanding the Marlins.
Interestingly, Major League
Baseball stepped in by de-
nouncing the Marlins spend-
ing habits and low payroll.
The Marlins were also ac-
cused of pocketing revenue
sharing money; instead of
the revenue sharing on play-
ers.
In response to the statement
released, the Marlins decid-
ed to increase their payroll
to the highest it has been in
five years. I cannot empha-
size enough how important
it is for the Marlins to con-
tinue to increase their pay-
roll. They need to do this in


order to keep the fans happy
and content. It is expected
that the team will increase
the payroll exponentially as
soon as they move into the
new stadium. Regardless, of
what the Marlins ownership
is promising, the fans are
demanding the team to show
more of a willingness to
spend a considerable amount
of money on quality players.
Florida Marlins owner Jef-
frey Loria, left, presents
Hanley Ramirez with the
Silver Slugger Award
Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria
is not exactly a fan favorite
and he has been accused of
pocketing revenue sharing
money instead of investing it
appropriately towards player
salaries. Incredibly, the
Marlins always find a way
to stay competitive and the
Front Office must be highly
commended for this extraor-
dinary achievement of re-
maining competitive with a
low payroll. Every year the
Marlins continue to have the
lowest payroll in baseball
and every year they con-
tinue to impress. Incredibly,
the Marlins won 87 games
last year with a $37 million
payroll. Jeffrey Loria needs
to understand that if you are
going to own a professional
sports franchise, than you
are required to spend money
and provide the necessary fi-

Miami Eliminated, But



Lthe Best is yet to come


By Pedro Heizer

If Tuesday night was the
last game in which Dwyane
Wade played with the Miami
Heat, it sure was another
one of those great D-Wade
moments. Wade, as usual,
had no help from his team
whatsoever except from 20
points from Mario Chalm-
ers... Funny isn't? The guy
that people thought would
be nothing was the only one
to help Wade's cause. You
might look at the boxscore
and say, "hey, why did Bea-
sley only play 13 minutes?"
well that's simple really, he
was vintage Michael Bea-
sley. A player that can't do
anything except change this
hair style, get tattoos, and go
to rehab. I've said this once
and I'll say it again, Michael
Beasley is a disgrace. Pat Ri-
ley was probably shaking his
head during that 1st half by
Beasley. Riley was probably
thinking, "wow, I should
have drafted Brook Lopez,
or ever O.J. Mayo". I'm
done, really Michael Beasley
in my book is another Greg
Oden and I'm done with
him and his sorry display of
a game. And with that, ends
my rant on the most disap-
pointing draft pick in Heat
history. Yes even worse than
D-Wright.
Back to the greatness that is
Dwyane Wade. He was su-
perb yet again, doing things
that players only wish for.
Wade had a double-double
with 31 points and 10 as-
sists. He was 9-10 from the
line and hit a pair of treys
to try and extend the series
back to Miami.
Winning this series was


something that before it
started and during the first
3 quarters of game one was
a sure possibility. But then,
thanks to terrible play from
the likes of Jermaine O'Neal
and Michael Beasley, and
horrid coaching from Erik
Spolestra, Miami found
themselves in a 0-3 hole in
which would have only been
a miracle to come back from.
Never had an NBA team
come back from such a hole.
The only thing close was in
the MLB League champion-
ship when the red Sox came
back after being down 0-3 to
the hated Yankees.
People kept drawing com-
parison to the 2006 Heat
championship team that
came back from down 0-2 to
win the next 4 games. There
is some fault in this reason,
for starters, we had a low-
post presence in Shaquille
O'Neal, a solid point guard
in Jason Williams, threats
from beyond the arc in An-
toine Walker, James Posey,
Jason Williams, and Gary
Payton, we had a motiva-
tor, and warrior in Alonzo
Mourning, and lastly, we
had arguably one of the best
coaches in the NBA in Pat
Riley. That was a champion-
ship team from the begging.
With 2 great point guards, a
great center, and great play-
ers that can shoot it from
deep.
This year, we had a solid
point guard in Wade, threats
from beyond the arc in
Wade, a warrior in Wade
and Udonis Haslem.... See
where I'm going with this?
This team had nothing that
makes them a championship
or even a second round play-


offs team. Granted, if O'Neal
and Beasley played half of
what they were capable of
playing, we had a legitimate
shot at the 2nd round. Like
I said from the beginning of
the season, Jermaine O'Neal
was the X-Factor.
Miami would only go as
far as O'Neal would. It was
a miracle to even win one
game.
Was this the last we've seen
of Dwyane Wade? Will he be
back next season? Where's
Beasley going to fit in? What
about Spolestra? These are
all questions that have been
filling my twitter inbox and
e-mail since last night's lost.
Well, all these questions are
simple to answer, to me at
least. This is the deal, let's
ask Wade himself: "Chicago
is my home city, and I love
Chicago," the guard said.
"But my heart is here in
Miami. All the cards are in
Miami, and it's their game to
lose, more than anything. I
appreciate that organizations
want me to be a part of them,
but right now Miami is in the
driver's seat." So, with that
being said, this is what Wade
Thinks of Miami and Chica-
go. I know, I know that in the
press conference after the
game 5 lost he seemed de-
pressed, but who wouldn't?
This man is a warrior and he
doesn't like to lose. I would
have been the same way if
that was me.
It's no secret that Miami has
to do business in the offsea-
son. Like Wade himself said
"The front office has got
work to do".
He is completely right. To
start off, I would "relieve
