School District looking at $80 million

budget shortfall

By Dale M. King

Palm Beach County
School District is loo-
king at a budget short-
fall for the 2010-2011
school year of at least
$80 million and that
irks maverick member
Frank Barbieri, who re-
presents Boca Raton on
the 7-member board.
"I want the board to ac-

count for every dollar,"
Barbieri told members
of the Boca Raton Fe-
deration of Homeow-
ners Association at a re-
cent meeting.
Barbieri said he is not
happy with the district's
budget history for the
past five years. He said
it is rife with overspend-
ing, paying for projects
that are not the district's
responsibility and for-

king over cash with-
out looking for cheaper
ways to deal with issues.
"The administration
seems to think we are in
the business of admini-
stering and not educat-
ing," he said. The objec-
tive for the upcoming
budget cycle, he said is
to "determine where we
can slash expenditures
without causing the sys-
tem to hemorrhage and

the patient to die."
The School District this
year has a $2.7 billion
budget the llth largest in
the United States, fifth
largest in Florida. Some
171,000 students head
for class every day in
Palm Beach County.
With an $80 million
deficit looming, Barb-
ieri said, "The board

Parking meters in

Boca Ratoncontinuedfrom page

yet to be determined, As-
sistant City Manager Mike
Woika recen-tly told the City
Council at a public hearing.
No one spoke for or against the
ordinance amended twice to
create "a framework for me-
tered parking within the city
of Boca Raton." But Coun-
cilman Anthony Majhess did
vote against the proposal.
Woika said the meters will not
only be a source of revenue
for the cash-strapped city, but
will also encourage turnover
in the downtown. And that,
he said, could help merchants.
In a memo to the council,
City Manager Leif Ahnell
said that a study was com-
pleted last year by a parking
consultant working for the
city. "The study inventoried
the parking spaces within
the city," he said. "Based on
observations and some as-
sumptions, the study noted
that the income from a few
areas in the city could to-
tal between $700,000 and
$800,000 on an annual basis."
Both Ahnell and Woika
said the ordinance only sets

the i \ii :K" for me-
tered parking. "It should be
noted," said Ahnell, "that
this ordinance does not es-
tablish the areas for me-
tered parking, not does it
set the parking meter rates."
"We will be back with reso-
lutions to outline these ar-
eas," Woika said. He also
noted that the new law
revamps sections of the
parking code, provides new
definitions, offers new re-
gulations and discusses
citations and violations."
The ordinance does say par-
king tickets must be paid
within 15 days. If a moto-
rist has three or more un-
paid tickets, his or her car
may be towed or fitted with
an immobilization device,
commonly called a "boot."
Councilman Mike Mul-
laugh made the motion to
adopt the parking meter
ordinance and Mayor Su-
san Whelchel seconded it.
There was no discussion
among council members
before the vote was taken.

Suspect charged with DUI

BOCARATON- Officers from
the Boca Raton Police Traf-
fic Homicide Unit have made
an arrest in connection with
a fatal motor vehicle crash
that occurred Nov. 14, 2009
about 5:45 p.m., in the 4000

dly struck by a 2004 Chevy
Impala operated by Michaud.
White was crossing Dixie
Highway when he was hit by
the southbound Chevy.
Police said White suffered
serious injuries and was later
pronounced dead at Delray
Medical Center. Michaud and
occupants of the Chevy were
not injured.
Economou said toxicology
results from blood taken from
Michaud showed high levels
of marijuana and Alprazol-
am in his system. Michaud
was arrested without inci-
dent and has been charged

when they caught an alleged
carjacker in a parking lot off

"Unless the economy sur-
prises forecasters and mi-
raculously fully recovers
by 2012, then the District is
going to have an almost im-
possible task of operating."
Speaking frankly, Barbieri
said the School Board "is
now faced with the unenvi-
able task of providing Palm
Beach County children in
186 schools [with] a world-
class education on a third
world budget." He noted
that Florida is "dead last"
in the nation for per-pupil
spending -$6,000 a kid com-
pared to the national average
of $10,000 for each student.
He said he disagrees with
recent anti-teacher senti-
ment. "Teachers should be
put on a pedestal," he said.
"These people are teaching
the future. I look at the me-

she took it, the 14-year-old,
in an apparent effort to es-
cape, crashed the SUV into
a Boca Raton police cruiser.
She was identified as Totti-
ana Canteen, 14, a resident
of Boca Raton.
According to police, the
12-year-old girl was sitting
in the 2003 black Nissan
Murano about 5 p.m. while
her father was getting gas
at the Valero station at 1380
North Federal Highway.
She was in the front pas-
senger seat, police said, the
engine was running and the
doors were unlocked while
he went inside.
In the police report, the
12 year old said Canteen
opened the front driver's
side door, ordered her out
of the car and sped off. The
12 year old was not injured,


that teachers should be happy
to have a job."
Barbieri said he met a tea-
cher recently who has been
an educator for nine years
and makes $39,000 a year.
To support his family, "he
works nights at a Home De-
pot and at a restaurant on
weekends. We entrust our
future to him."
He said he was recently at
Water's Edge School in
West Boca Raton about 6 in
the evening. "Eight teachers
were still there. They had
been there since 7 a.m. And
as they were leaving, they
were carrying work home."
Barbieri said he saw por-
table classrooms at Gove
Elementary in Belle Glade
that were 50 years old and
rotted, but they couldn't be
removed because they are
surrounded by other porta-
ble classrooms.
He said a teacher showed

police said.
Boca police officers spot-
ted the car heading north on
Dixie Highway approaching
West Yamato Road. Canteen
then turned north on NW
2nd Avenue where officers
had laid down stop sticks.
Seeing the spike strips in
the road, Canteen reporte-
dly turned into a parking lot
where a police car pulled in
behind her. As the officer
was getting out of his car,
Canteen began to back up,
crashing into the front of
the cruiser. The officer was
not injured and Canteen was
taken into custody.
In the police report, Canteen
told detectives that after ar-
riving home from Lantana,
she and a friend walked to
the gas station where they
sat on a bench for about

him how sugar cane dust
comes in through an old
louvered window in the ba-
throom. By the end of the
day, he said, "it looks like
the kids have been playing
in mud."
In his address, Barbieri of-
fered examples of how he
has forced the School Dis-
trict to tighten its belt. He
said he killed plans for a
new $30 million elementary
school in West Boca Raton.
"We didn't need it," So he
steered the board to built
an addition to Whispering
Pines Elementary at a cost
of $8 million.
Barbieri is also upset by the
low graduation rate. "Even
though they say we are an
A-rated district, only 80 per-
cent of students graduate."
The number for black stu-
dents is 60 percent.
"This is a dismal, dismal
record," he said. "Society
needs to be blamed for that.
Parents must become in-

trend is developing. "We

charged with carjacking,

than 20 grams, driving with-

"We are not doing a good
job educating," said Barb-
ieri. "We need to do much
more. If these students can't
read, then they can't do
math, history or science."
He also urged Boca parents
to stay in touch with him
and get involved in their
children's schools.

Boca approves $600,000

to maintain Mizner

Park Amphitheater

By Dale M. King
BOCA RATON -For years, the city of Boca Raton has been
concentrating its development efforts in Mizner Park at the
south end of the multi-use facility.
But trouble appears to be lurking at the north end. The Count
de Hoemle Amphitheatre, operated by the Centre for the Arts,
but located on city-owned land, is in financial trouble.
A drop in attendance and decrease in the number of shows at the
facility that once hosted thousands for concerts and civic events
has put a strain on CFA's finances, city officials said.
Municipal leaders have been negotiating with the nonprofit
group to possibly to take over the building and possibly work in
partnership with the cultural-arts group to manage it.
The City Council Tuesday night voted to take $600,000 from
the General Fund and use it to run the operation and to make
"There is still no agreement in place" as to what the city's role
will be, Assistant City Manager Mike Woika told the Boca Raton
Tribune. "The staff is working it out. We should have it in four
to six weeks."
Woika said the $600,000 will "handle all upcoming repairs
and other things like seating."
The amphitheater was built in the early 2000s, the second of
what was to be a three-part cultural arts facility at the North
Mizner Boulevard end of Mizner Park. The first element was
the Boca Raton Museum of Art, which was completed be-
fore the amphitheater was built.
Henrietta, Countess de Hoemle, made a large donation to the
amphitheater, giving her naming rights. She selected her late hus-
band, Count Adolph de Hoemle, as the namee.
Over the years, the amphitheater has hosted a number of
named acts. In fact, comic parody singer Weird Al Yankovic
is scheduled to perform there later this month.
The amphitheater continues to host Festival of the Arts
BOCA, and is the venue for the annual observance of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The city sponsors a number of
concerts there, and a lighting festival and carnival are set
up there for the opening of Boca's holiday illuminations in
The amphitheater accommodates 5,000 patrons, many in lawn
seats. That's twice the number of the older city amphitheater
that was located on the same spot, and was razed to make way
for the new facility.

Should School Board members

stay out of the classroom?

I'm usually not surprised at anything that School Board
member Frank Barbieri says.
He is, no pun intended, very frank, and has a reputation for
telling it like it is. That's the attitude that won him the seat.
When he spoke recently to the Federation of Boca Raton
Homeowners Asso-ciations, he made some comments about
Schools Superintendent Dr. Art Johnson. Generally, the
comments were pretty good. He said Dr. Johnson makes it a
point to call every board member at the end of each day to re-
port what has happened on the local education front. That's
good for communications. Cuts down on surprises.
And Barbieri, in return, no-ted that he meets with Johnson
every Friday for a personal, one-on-one update.
But he noted that Johnson has told Barbieri that he is "too
involved" in the school system. By that he means that Barb-
ieri spends too much time going from school to school to see
first-hand how they are being operated.
Some people might call that micro-managing. After all, the
School Board hires the superintendent to handle the day-to-
day operations of the schools.
I can see both sides of the argument. The School Board
doesn't have to see inside every classroom to make policy
and act on the many items of business it is called upon to
But what's wrong with a School Board member visi-ting a
school? Barbieri said he does it a lot several ti-mes a week,
in fact. And he gave no indication that he visits with the pur-
pose of interfering with the business at hand. He certainly
isn't the type to "spy" on teachers. Actually, on the surface, it
seems like a good thing to have School Board members who
are aware of various classrooms.
But for teachers and staff, it must be a little tense knowing
someone from the "big board" is in the building particularly
now, when relations among teachers, admi-nistrators and board
members are tense to begin with.
I've always thought that schools should be open to public
visitation. In my years as a journalist, I have usually been wel-
comed in schools since I am normally there to cover an event
or get a story.

The atmosphere has changed over the years. In the 1970s,
when I first got into the business, schools did not have
guards walking the halls. Students didn't carry much in the
way of drugs or weaponry. And mass school shootings were
still many years away.
If I enter a school today, I use caution. I make myself known
to the proper authorities. I check in at the main office. I fol-
low the directions of staffers who usually accompany me to
my destination.
I'm certain that Barbieri's visits to schools are conducted in
a gentlemanly way and in accordance with the rules.
It's a shame that schools must be so careful these days, so
careful that the public the people who fund the schools
- have difficulty getting in. Many times, troubles happen
around schools that are really not related to what is going
on inside.
In this new century and new era, though, it is nice to know
that at least one School Board member is conscientious
enough to ma-ke school visits a priority.

Busy season for council
City Councilwoman Constance Scott was in attendance at
the recent Federation meeting and informed everyone that
the city's le-gislative board is about to begin its annual round
of budget talks.
As usual, with spending strained, the city is going to have to
find cuts totaling in the range of $7 million to $15 million.
"Stay informed," she urged the crowd. "Come to council
Speaking of the council, it will sit down May 17-19 for its
annual goal-setting sessions. The meetings are held to dis-
cuss the coming year in Boca and to prioritize an agenda of
objectives. This gives City Manager Leif Ahnell a direction
as he begins preparing the budget for presentation probably
late this summer.
Oh, yes, one other thing. A "town-hall style" meeting is
scheduled at 6 p.m. May 24 in City Hall.

Boca Tribune hits 32 pages; honors PBSC

student newspaper staff

This has
been a
larly busy
week for
those of
us at the
Boca Ra-
', ton Tri-
We're proud and happy to
announce that with this edi-
tion, we have increased the
size of the paper to 32 pages,
up from the 24-page publica-
tions that have gone before.
A lot of people deserve credit
for helping us to reach this
plateau too many to men-
tion. And it's not just those
who write the news, sell the
ads and distribute the prod-
uct. We want to thank the
community for its ongoing
support and interest that has
really kept us going.
It's a wonderful feeling to
walk out on the streets of
Boca Raton and West Boca

Raton and be recognized by
people who tell us they liked
a particular column, or just
enjoyed the stories and pho-
tos. We continue to concen-
trate on the community and
emphasize the good things
that are happening here.
Of course, we have to report
the bad, too, like the oil spill
in the Gulf of Mexico and
the police news that some-
times has a tragic ending.
We can thank Police Chief
Dan Alexander and the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice for their hard work to
keep the streets of Boca Ra-
ton and West Boca safe. It's
a demanding job.
We also join with local offi-
cers who honored their fall-
en comrades during ceremo-
nies held as part of National
Police Week.

Pat on the back to student
It was our pleasure this past

week to offer our own tri-
bute to the students who
staff "The Beachcomer," the
student newspaper of Palm
Beach State College, which
is distributed on all of the
school's campuses, including
the one right here in Boca
The students got a chance
to meet with some "vete-
ran" news folks like Society
Editor Skip Sheffield, whose
reputation as a reporter, re-
viewer and society editor is
known throughout the area.
The PBSC troupe also met
with Managing Editor Dale
King, who traces his roots
back to newspapers here in
Florida and in Massachu-
setts and Rhode Island.
They also shared some ideas
with some of the new mem-
bers of the paper's advertis-
ing staff who also attended
the event held at Waterco-
lors in the Bridge Hotel. It
was a wonderful, though

windy night, and a little bit
of rain caused us all to move
inside. But it didn't dampen
the spirit.
Hopefully, some of the
young writers, photographers
and graphic artists will help
us as we continue to deve-
lop the Boca Raton Tribune,
both in print and online.

We stopped off this week at
the Boca Raton Historical
Society in the Old Town Hall

Archivist Susan Gillis con-
tacted us to make sure she
had all of our print editions

Chabad of East Boca holds

auction to mark anniversary,

prepare for move to new site

By Dale M. King

BOCARATON- On its 10th
anniversary, Chabad of East
Boca Raton is planning a
move into a new and perma-
nent temple.
"A long and winding road
as finally led Chabad of East
Boca to the place we were
destined to call home 770
East Palmetto Park Road,"
said Rabbi Ruvi New in an
entry on the synagogue's
website. Auctioneer Neil \, gets into high gear on the bidding floor.
From its beginnings in the
living room of Ruvi and
Ahuva New's home to a
storefront on Palmetto Park
Road, "Chabad of East Boca's
activities and reach continue
to grow," the rabbi said. "In
2002, it moved into the cur-
rent facility, a larger rented
space on NE 1st Avenue."
"We are now ready for a
permanent home," he said,
"and a permanent home for
Chabad will mean a perma-
nent home for more Jews in Interested potential bidders include Sheri Fareish, left, and Mina

The art sale and auction
marked the 10th anniver-
sary of the Chabad. It fea-

Hidden Gem for Horse Lovers i

By Dale Smith

Testled just a few hun-
V dred yards from Eagles
Landing Middle School in
West Boca Raton, lies a hid-
den gem for horse lovers of
all types. Blue Sky Stable
is a beautiful, full-care, five
acre horse boarding and trai-
ning facility where horse
fanciers can also take riding
and show-jumping lessons
of several styles. After cal-
ling ahead, the proprietor,
Mark Rosner, who lives on
the premises, invited us out
to tour his farm and stable.
Of course, my ten and twelve
year-old daughters and I pi-
cked up a bag of carrots at
the grocery store before ta-
king the short drive just past
South County Park to the
Our tour consisted of vie-
wing their large grassy pad-
docks, the riding arena, the
tack room, lunge ring for
training, and then meeting,
petting and feeding carrots
to the twelve horses on the
premises that day. Most of
the horses are very friendly
and easy to feed (careful with
those fingers!). Unless they
are moving from one area to
another, they are separated
by fences from the visitors.
There are several very large
fenced running areas for
them to graze, exercise and
We met the head trainer
and Barn Manager, Gillian
Muir. Gillian is very expe-
rienced and specializes in

dressage training and hunter
and jumper training. Dres-
sage actually is translated
from French as "training".
Its fundamental purpose is
to develop, through standar-
dized progressive training
methods, a horse's natural
athletic ability and willing-
ness to perform, thereby
maximizing its potential as a
riding horse. At the peak
of a dressage horse's gym-
nastic development, it can
smoothly respond to a skil-
led rider's minimal aids by
performing the requested
movement while remaining
relaxed and appearing ef-

with an excellent tempera-
ment are desired. The show
jumper is generally a horse
that has more power and
energy than a show hunter.
Because only jumping abil-
ity is scored, conformation,
manners, and way of going
are critical only as far as
they affect soundness and
ability to jump. Jumpers
are often taller and more
powerfully built than hunt-
ers, often with a bit more
speed. Many Boca teenage
children, mostly the girls,
express an interest in one or
more riding styles and take
lessons with Gillian at the
We were next
greeted by
a beautiful
10 year old
black Ara-
bian stallion
named "Q".
Q's regis-
.. tered name is
"Darq Defi-
ance" and interestingly he
is the grandson of Cass Ole,
star of the 1979 film "The
Black Stallion" based on the
1941 children's book. He is
available for and is relative-
ly easy to ride.
Then we fed some carrots to
"Spirit", a lively seven year-
old Palomino quarter-horse.
He has a great demeanor and
stands 16.1 hands high. He
is very willing over jumps
and loves trail riding and
competing in show rings.
There are plenty of shaded
trails in the area for a relax-
ing ride. The horses like to

hit the trail after a workout
in the arena.
We noticed a beautiful tho-
roughbred racehorse on the
premises named 'Rock It".
He was recuperating at Blue
Sky and relaxing before his
next race. Rock It is actually
entered in a Claiming race
this Friday at five furlongs
at Tampa Bay Downs. Good
Luck Rock It!
Of all the different breeds of
horses stabled at Blue Sky
(a/k/a "The Ponda-Rosner"),
one that stood out in his ap-
pearance the most to me due
to his "Clydesdale"-type lo-
wer leg area, was a Friesian
named T.J. The Friesian is
most often recognized by
its black coat color, though
color alone is not their only
distinguishing characteris-
tic. Friesian horses also have
a long, thick mane and tail,
often wavy, and "feathers"-
long, silky hair on the lower
legs, deliberately left un-
trimmed. Friesian horses are
popular in both Europe and
the United States, and are
often used today for Dres-
sage competition, pleasure
riding, and driving. Friesian
horses can do well in dres-
sage competition due to the
breed's movement, train-
ability, appearance, power,
and body control.
On a different note, Mark
and I discussed a serious
problem existing in South
Florida and other areas due
to the economic downturn.
Horse are being abandoned
mostly due to the lack of
funds to board and feed

them. He lamented that Horse Show participants returning
to their trailers after the show sometimes find horses aban-
doned and tied to their trailers. America has tens of thou-
sands of unwanted horses. Mark indicated that Adoption is
a simple and inexpensive method to curb this problem and
hopes more people notice and are able to adopt and care for
unwanted horses instead of inhumanely abandoning them or
selling them at "Auction Sales" which eventually and sadly
sells them to slaughterhouses for food. Owners must make a
commitment to their horse before considering them for pur-
chase. They should not be treated as commodities.
It was a wonderful morning spent at Blue Sky Stable watch-
ing the horses; what beautiful animals they certainly are. The
stable is truly a hidden gem in West Boca. We thank Mark
for his genuine hospitality. Contact information and driving
directions are below.

Use all the words you want. They can never be taxed

By Diane Feen

It's a tough time to be in the
work force. Businesses are
cutting back there's little job
security (they can ship your
job to India while you're on
your lunch break) and your
annual bonus might be a clean
napkin or a slice of pizza.
But there is one thing that is
recession proof- words.
You can still have a conversa-
tion without someone telling
you, "your time is up" (unless
you're in therapy), you can
still call a credit card com-
pany and hear your account
balance without an additional
charge and you can still yell at
your loved ones without them

Hail to the chef at this cozy
cafe with an international
menu of superior, tasty foods.
Open for dinner only from 4
PM to 9PM, seven days each
week, it seats over 70 diners
at the patio, bar and dining
room... located at 2717 North
Federal Highway in Delray
Beach- phone (561)243-
Among the dozen appetiz-
ers offered, we chose fried
calamari-a two cup portion
of very tender, hand breaded
calamari with a tangy mari-
nara sauce. It was extremely
tender and flavorful.
Six coconut shrimp gently
fried golden brown was a
superior starter as were the
Buffalo style chicken wings
served ten to the plate.
The New England clam
chowder was rich and thick
and creamy with large
chunks of clam meat while
the Bahamian conch chow-
der was lightly spiced and
had deep Caribbean flavor.
Black bean and French onion
soups are also offered.
Eight items are listed for
seafood lovers. We opted
for light-as-a-feather South
Beach snapper sauteed with
capers, articokes, raisins
and sun tried tomatoes over
grilled vegetables-not to be
missed. Wonderful too, was
the broiled seafood combo
with it's scallops, shrimp and

sending you a bill (hopefully).
Another good part of this
word-free zone is that it in-
cludes humor. You can make
fun of bankers (who need
Hazmats to rid themselves
of toxic assets), Botox babes
(who seem to enjoy their as-
sets frozen) and men who get
caught with their pants down
The best part about humor is
that the federal government is
not going to tax it, the airport
security staff will not make
you take it off before you go
through the metal detector (if
your shoes are funny, that's
another story) and you can
always tuck it away when
in the presence of humorless

snapper served with both
vegetables and lightly spiced
Cuban saffron rice.
A dozen meat and poultry
dishes are offered. A very
light chicken picatta with
capers and white wine over
tender linguine was served
with garlic bread. The chick-
en parmesan- a breast of sau-
teed white meat was topped
with red sauce and melted
mozzarella and garlic bread.
Both these chicken dishes
were delicious to taste.
Where the Chef shines, it is
with his veal dishes. The veal
francese was tender meat
sauteed with white wine and
lemon over linguine. A suc-
culent treat not to be missed.
The crowning achievement
was veal parmesan, an Ital-
ian breadcrumb coated serv-
ing of tender, tender meat,
topped with red sauce and
melted mozzarella. We could
not remember having veal
parm any better than this.
This evening the six specials
included paella with fresh
mussels, shrimp, clams, and
sea scallops served on a saf-
fron rice bed flavored with
both oregano and cumin.
This complex dish was one
we greatly enjoyed.
A variety of four salads, each
with it's unusual personality,
are listed. There are a half
dozen burger choices and a
half dozen pasta choices as

folks (and it won't make a
bulge in your waistband).
Let's face it, we can do with-
out $45,000 BMW's, $9,000
leather coats and $600 din-
ners, but can we do without
humor? I think not. Why else
would Jay Leno and David
Letterman make more than the
president of the United States
and why would Jon Stewart
and Stephen Colbert be rack-
ing up Emmy's and accolades
as iic; v. cic martini olives?
I'll tell you why because
when you laugh your endor-
phins are activated (similar to
when you fall in love with-
out the need for jewelry), it's
good for weight loss you

Without exception, we all
are destined to face sickness,
disease, decline and, eventu-
ally, death. No matter who
you are, rich or poor, CEO
or custodian, world-famous
celebrity or unknown, you
will one day share the same
line in the obituary column
that everyone ultimately
receives: "And he (or she)
Even before we breathe our
last, however, we must deal
with weakness, whether it
be of a physical, emotional,
professional or spiritual na-
ture. How we respond in
times of weakness reveals
our character, and often
serves to shape the rest of
our lives.
One of my cherished friends
was Bud Wynthein, a young
German farm boy who had
a distinctive and refreshing
view on life. Many years
ago, he and his lovely Swed-
ish wife, Margaret, operated
several hundred acres of
farmland near Wasco, Illi-
nois, U.S.A. until poliomy-
elitis (polio) placed him an
iron lung. Seemingly, Bud
and Margaret's hopes and
dreams had died with his
diagnosis: acute flaccid pa-
However, Bud refused to
be "knocked out." Margaret
managed the farm with hired
hands as Bud began a long
and difficult program of re-
building his upper torso; the
lower half was useless. The
farm equipment company
devised a tractor for him to
operate without legs. Polio
may have stricken his body,
but could not cripple Bud's
heart his will to live and
his happy, unfailingly smil-
ing disposition. His strong
faith in Jesus Christ was not
a means of escaping God's
will, but his way of seeing
that God's will would be
Bud's handicap became his
pulpit. He might have read
the magazine article, "Turn
Your Sickness into an As-
set," because he certainly
lived its principles. The arti-
cle wisely observed, "Often
sickness generates energies
that mere health couldn't
possibly bestow." Here are

* Sickness helps to remind
us of death.
* Sickness helps to make
us to think seriously about
* Sickness helps to soften
our heart.
* Sickness helps to "level
and humble" us.
* Sickness helps to test our
faith in God.
Such thinking prompted
the apostle Paul to write:
"...I was given the gift of a
handicap to keep me in con-
stant touch with my limita-
tions. Satan's angel did his
best to get me down, what
he in fact did was push me
to my knees. No danger then
of walking round high and
mighty! Three times I did
that, and then He told me,
'My grace is enough, it's
all you need, My strength
comes into its own in your
"Once I heard that, I was
glad to let it happen. I quit
focusing on the handicap and
began appreciating the gift.
Now I take limitations in
stride and good cheer, these
limitations that cut me down
to size, abuse, accidents, op-
position, bad breaks. I just let
Christ take over! And so the
weaker I get, the stronger I
become" (2 Corinthians 12:
Author Max Lucado ex-
pressed it this way: "When
your weakness surfaces, re-
member that God still uses
you; volunteer for a form of
service that requires you to
depend on God's strength.
Depend on Him every step
of the way."

Judge unlikely to set aside mediated

agreement for claim of stress

Question: My wife and I
have been involved in a di-
vorce case for over a year.
All financial infor-
mation has been ex-
changed. A month
ago, with our law-
yers' approval, we
entered into a me-
diated settlement a-
greement, after two-
days of mediation. Mik
We have been mar-
ried for twenty years, and
have two minor children.
I have been a stay at home
dad, making about $50,000
a year as a freelance writer.
My wife is a successful at-
torney, who makes several
hundred thousand dollars a
In the mediation agreement,
we divided marital property.
She agreed to pay perma-
nent alimony and child sup-
port. She also agreed to pay
private school fees, summer
camp fees and college edu-
cation costs.
At our final divorce hea-
ring, a month after the a-
greement was signed she
had second thoughts. She
told the judge she did not
know if she could make the
payments without increa-
sing her workload to the
point where she could spend
little time with the children.
She also claimed that she
was coerced by the stress of
the two-day mediation. She
asked the court to reject the
agreement, because was not
in the best interests of the
children, and because it was
achieved through coercion
and duress.
The judge set a half a day
hearing next week to hear
evidence regarding whether
or not the agreement was
coerced and whether the
agreement in the best inter-
est of the children. He said
that he had the right to reject
the agreement if it was not
in the children's best inter-
ests, or if my wife was co-
erced into signing it. Can he
do that?

Answer: Florida law looks
favorably on settlement a-
greements entered into vol-
untarily, between
two adults, repre-
sented by counsel,
after full disclosure.
These agreements
are, generally, en-
dorsed and promot-
ed and ratified by
SGora the judge at a final
Statistics prove that volun-
tary agreements are more
likely to be followed than
court imposed agreements.
On the other hand, the
court's have the legitimate
obligation to make sure that
children's rights are pro-

Agreements can be rejected
by the court if they do not
provide an appropriate level
of child support, or in some
other way ignore the chil-
dren's best interests. The
settlement agreement as you
describe it appears to be in
the children's best interests.
Court's can reject agree-
ments on proven claims that
they were entered into as the
result of coercion and duress
or fraudulently, based upon
misrepresentations financial
An appellate court has set
aside an agreement be-
cause the wife obtained it
by threatening to expose the
husband's business prac-
tices to the IRS. The stress

of a mediation process is not
likely to be grounds to set an
agreement aside.
Under the circumstances
that you describe, it is un-
likely that a judge in a cir-
cuit court has the discretion
to set aside your agreement
on the two grounds argued
by your wife.

tified by The Board of Legal

cialist in matrimonial law, and

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

By Dr. Daniel Man

Size of breast implants should

balance with body proportions

Question: Dear Dr Man, I
want to get implants. I've
always had small breasts
and I want to improve my
body shape. Problem is that
I have no idea what size to
get. I imagine that when I
see the surgeon, he will ask
me what size im-
plants I want. How
do I decide?

Answer: The deci-
sion of what size
implant you should
get is not one to
take lightly. The first Dr Dani
thing to remember is that
one size does not fit all. For
example, while a D-cup may
look great on a tall, medium-
framed woman, it may be
too big on a petite, small-
framed woman.
There are two main fac-
tors to consider when it
comes to the size of your
implants, namely: the size
of the breast in proportion
to the size of your body

and the characteristics of
your breast tissue. Every
individual differs in these
areas. The ideal breast size
should balance with your
height and weight measure-
ments. The size also largely
depends upon how much
natural breast tis-
sue you ha-ve. For
example, a woman
with more breast
tissue will need her
implants filled with

in or-der to get the
iel Man size she desires.
Many women believe that
an augmented breast will
not sag, which is not true. If
you choose an implant that
is too large, it can actually
cause the tissue to stretch
and, thus, cause more sag-
ging to occur. The tendency
of the breast to sag is related
to the loss of skin elastic-
ity and how thin the tissue
is surrounding the breast.
Another important thing to

remember is that silicone
implants are now available
to use for everyone over 18
years of age.
The type and size of the
implants that are best for
you depends upon what you
want and what your breast
tissue will allow you to ha-
ve. When you meet with a
board-certified plastic sur-
geon for a consultation, he
or she will be able to talk to
you about your various op-

Whoever is acquainted with
the United States Postal Ser-
vice knows of the excessive
amount of "junk mail" which
daily floods most American
households. With the
advent of electronic
mail, the same is also
experienced by its
subscribers. The ad-
vantage of the latter
is that with one click
on your keyboard
you can delete an un- Dr. Syn
wanted message without need-
ing to open it. Some e-mail pro-
viders even take care of that for
you, ahead of time, by diverting
suspicious messages into the
category known as Spamm,"
thus keeping unwanted e-mails
from your inbox.
On the personal level, you can
also be proactive in not permit-
ting unsolicited, negative com-
ments to affect you, or harsh
responses which may be given
to your inquiries, besides other
unedifying messages you need
not store in your inner being.
That could contaminate the
stream flowing from your own
heart toward others.
In your daily interactions with
people, both those you know, as
well as many who simply cross
your path once, provide a whole
assortment of messages aimed
at you. Some are written, others
are vocally presented, besides
many more which can be just as
eloquent, albeit unspoken: an evil
stare, an unpleasant gesture, or any
other non-verbal type of commu-
Your best posture towards all
these is to delete them from

your memory as quickly
as they come, long before
they take hold of you and
adversely affect you by poi-
soning the emotional reser-
voir which should
supply all you need
for the real chal-
lenges of any of
your days.
I've met several
people who, unnec-
essarily, daily en-
esio Lyra dure a rather miser-
able existence because they
hold on too tightly to grudg-
es, resentments, and nega-
tive intimations which they
allowed to lodge in their life.
It may also relate to items
they chose to interpret in a
negative way even if that
was not the original intent
of the message. Whichever
form it may take, the conse-
quences are caustic for any
life, often leading to illness,
if not to death itself!
An expression the apostle
Paul employs in several of
his letters is the imperative
"put away" which his read-
ers were to observe. For
instance, "Put away child-
ish things..."(I Corinthians
13:11). And to the Ephe-
sians, he exhorted: "Let
all bitterness, wrath, anger,
clamor, and evil speaking
be put away from you, with
all malice" (4:31). In the
same vein St. Peter urges
his readers in "laying aside
all malice" (I Peter 2:1) so
as to reach higher levels of
spiritual maturity and per-
sonal satisfaction.

Something quite sad is what
happens when people delete
the messages God had sent
to be embraced and stored in
the human heart and mind,
to provide the directives for
varied, unexpected situa-
tions encountered in daily
At the same time, healthy
pronouncements God wishes
for us to receive and retain,
sometimes cannot occupy
human minds on account of
too much corrosive nega-
tivity already lodged in that
space. Such items need to be
deleted so that you may "let
the word of Christ dwell in
you richly in all wisdom"
(Colossians 3:16a).
The peace of God can domi-
nate your entire being so
that in moments of chaos
or times of tranquility, you
utilize the right stuff to keep
you thriving while you re-
flect on those virtues and
flush out what is displeasing
to God and injurious to your
own life!

FAU receives grant from

the Florida Engineering

BOCA RATON Florida At-
lantic University's College of
Engineering and Computer
Science has received a $2,000
grant from the Florida Engi-
neering Foundation (FEF) to
FAUS's human-propelled submarine support students com peting in
professional, society-sponsored design competitions.
"One of the most valuable learning and team-building expe-
riences our students can have comes from competition with
their peers at the national level," said Karl Stevens, dean of
the College of Engineering and Computer Science at FAU.
"This generous gift from the Florida Engineering Founda-
tion helps make this possible and is very much appreciated."
The FAU Owls Racing Team is one of three FAU teams to
receive funds from the FEF grant. The team will be com-
peting in the 2010 Formula SAE Competition in Brooklyn,
Michigan from May 12-15. The FAU team will join more
than 100 university teams from around the world at the
Michigan International Speedway.
The FEF grant also will help fund the FAU Autonomous
Surface Vehicle Club (ASVC), which will be participating in
the 2010 Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) competition.
The annual contest is sponsored by the Association for Un-
manned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI). The goal
of the competition is to advance the state of the art in ASV
design by challenging a new generation of scientists and
engineers to create a system capable of performing various
missions in a marine environment.
FAU's Human Powered Submarine (HPS) Race Team also
will benefit from FEF. With the competition taking place
underwater, these races are a challenge of human "peddling"
strength and endurance, as well as a test of putting academic
theory into practice.
In 2009, the team won the "Absolute Speed" award for hav-
ing the fastest sub at the race. The 11th annual International
Submarine Races will be the next competition for the HPS
Race Team, which will take place in summer 2011.
The FEF was established in 1986 to encourage and assist
students in pursuing enginee-ring careers and to educate the
public about engineering.

Dogs were able to partici-
pate in a contest to deter-
mine, prettiest, best-dressed,
meanest, smallest, largest
and best overall dog.
An unusual feature of the
contest was the fact par-
ticipants were allowed and
even encouraged to bribe
the judges with cash-all to
benefit PROPEL, of course
"It cost enough to make him
win," said PROPEL board

member Harriet Lewis, who
devised the "crooked" con-
test to benefit PROPEL. "I
got all my friends to con-
tribute. He could have won
largest too, but I didn't want
to take that from the others."
As it was, Lewis' huge
black Newfoundland won
best-dressed and best over-
all dog.
Boca Raton Mayor Susan
Whelchel joined in the fun,
acting as a judge and willing
bribe recipient. Other judges
were City Councilwoman
Constance Scott; PROPEL
past president Roxanna
Trinka and current president
Andy Scott.
"It was a huge success,"
remarked Scott. "A lot of
people put a lot of effort
into this event, and we thank
them all. We don't have defi-
nite figures yet, but we think
we raised close to $15,000."

to help raise funds for the McFadden family of Boca Raton.
Danny McFadden, age 23, suffered a swimming accident on
October 10, 2009 that has left him paralyzed and in need
of ongoing care. His parents, Patrick and Jill McFadden are
working full time to support the family and also are pro-

Olympic Heights High
School, a school known
for a history of good
tennis, is now at the top
of the High School Ten-
nis world. Luisa Ortiz, a
sophomore at Olympic
heights, made it to the
states semifinals, where
she lost to Sarah Mean,
who ended up winning
the states. When asked
about Luisa's role in the
team head coach Kel-
ley Stephens told the
Boca Raton Tribune
"Luisa Ortiz played a
huge role in everything.
She played pretty much
the whole season unde-
feated now, both sin-
gles and doubles" Also
at the top of the tennis
high school scene is
sophomore Dylan Gun-
ning who also lost in
the semifinals. Alex Ro-
bles of Naples Barron-
Collier defeated Dylan
Gunning of Olympic
Heights in the No. 1
singles final, 6-2, 6-4.
Gunning was the last
surviving Lions player
in the tournament. "He
[Dylan] played a huge

crucial role; he pretty
much went undefeated
the whole year with
a few losses. He is
ranked in USTA, Unit-
ed States Tennis As-
sociation, number 35."
Said Coach Stephens.
The way to get to states
is a very weary one. It
all begins by playing at
the district level, once
you become district
champion you move
on to regionals. Once
you win regionals, you
go on to play at the
state level. "These two
athletes are huge role
models academically
and athletically for the
school" added coach
Stephens. Both Ortiz
and Gunning both won
at the district and re-
gional levels and went
all the way to the semi-
finals of the state cham-
pionship. A great feat
by any High School in
Boca Raton, At Olym-
pic Heights, it's their
first year in high school
history both the boys
and girls tennis team
made it to the State



All of the buzz and talk
recently surroun-ding
the Marlins organiza-
tion has been all about
outfield prospect Mi-
chael Stanton. The Mar-
lins have wanted to keep
in Double A in order to
give him more time to
complete his develop-
ment with some more
minor league seasoning
and to delay his arbitra-
tion eligibility clock.
This means Stanton will
be under club control
for an additional year.
The question that every
Marlins fan is asking is,
when exactly will Mi-
chael Stanton be called
up and will be ready to
produce right from the
gecko? Michael Stan-
ton is absolutely tear-
ing it up in Double A.
He is on fire putting up
mosnter numbers. Im-
pressively, Stanton has
a .340 batting average,
a .477 on base percent-
age, and a.840 slugging
percentage. In the last
29 games, he has hit
15 home runs and 35
RBIs. In addition, Stan-
ton has a .493 on base
percentage and he has
shown tremendous pa-
tience and discipline by
walking 29 times. Fur-
thermore, Stanton was
ranked as baseball's
third highest rated pros-
pect by Baseball Ame-
rica, right behind Jason
Heyward and Stephen
Strasburg. What an un-
believable class to be
in! We are talking about
Stanton being up there
with two once in a life-
time future prospects.

about is whether he will
be able to handle ma-
jor league pitching, hit
in the clutch and un-
der pressure, and most
importantly will he ul-
timately meet the ex-
ceedingly high expec-
tations placed on him?
Physically, Stanton is
very imposing at 6"5
and weighing in at 230
pounds. Stanton was an
exceptional athlete in
High School. He played
basketball, baseball and
football. Interestingly,
he was recruited by
Pete Carroll at USC to
play cornerback. Most
likely, he made the right
decision choosing base-
ball over football.
Many sources close to
the Marlins believe that
Stanton will be called
up by early June. I be-
lieve you can make the
comparison between

Scouts have been uni-
versally impressed by
Stanton's tremendous
power. They have him
rated as an 80 on a 20-
80 power scale, which
is the highest number
on the scale. The only
knock on Stanton is that
he strikes out a little
too much, but many ad-
vanced scouts have stat-
ed that he is impro-ving
his plate discipline.
Michael Stanton is the
Marlins highest rated
prospect and many
people believe he will
achieve true greatness.
Marlins fans and base-
ball experts have placed
an enormous amount of
expectations on Stan-
ton. There is no doubt
in my mind that he has
tremendous potential and
he has the physical tools
to become a great ball
player. What I wonder
about is whether he will
be able to handle ma-
jor league pitching, hit
in the clutch and un-
der pressure, and most
importantly will he ul-
timately meet the ex-
ceedingly high expec-
tations placed on him?

Joga Bonito: The Beautiful Game

By Pedro Heizer

It happens once every four
years. Something incredible
that is not only heart-warm-
ing but also exciting. Some
may be thinking Olympics,
but no, it's not the Olympic
Games. It's something more
watched more around the
world than any sports tour-
nament. The FIFA World Cup
is one of those rare speci-
mens of sporting events that
not only bring people to-
gether, but it brings nations
and the world together.
For one to understand the
magnitude of this one-month
phenomenon, on must un-
derstand the past, the pres-
ent and the future of the cup.
The World Cup is an inter-
national association football
competition contested by the
men's national teams of the
members of Federation In-
ternationale de Football As-
sociation (FIFA), the sport's
global governing body. The
championship has been a-
warded every four years
since the first tournament
in 1930, except in 1942 and
1946 when it was not con-
tested because of World War
II. The current format of
the tournament involves 32
teams competing for the title
at venues within the host na-
tion over a period of about a
month this phase is often
called the World Cup Finals.
A qualification phase, which
currently takes place over
the preceding three years,
is used to determine which

teams qualify for the tourna-
ment together with the host
During the 18 tournaments
that have been held, seven
nations have won the title.

Brazil has won the World
Cup a record five times, and
they are the only team to
have played in every tourna-
ment since 1930. Italy, the
current champions, has won
four titles, and Germany is
next with three titles. The
other former champions are
Uruguay, winners of the in-
augural tournament, and Ar-
gentina, with two titles each,
and England and France,
with one title each. Some
may not know this, but the
United States won third pla-
ce at the inaugural cup in
The World Cup is the most
widely-viewed sporting event
in the world, where an esti-
mated 715.1 million people
watched the final match of
the 2006 World Cup held in

cess that began in August
2007 and involved 204 of the
208 FIFA national teams. As
such, the qualifying matches
began at the 2008 Summer
Olympics since many of the
nations where involved.
This will be the first time
that the tournament has been
hosted by an African nation,
after South Africa beat Mo-
rocco and Egypt in an all-
African bidding process.
Why all this talk about the
World Cup? Well, many of
you know that we have two
great youth soccer leagues
in SABR and GBYSA. We
also have a state champion
team in our backyard with
Boca Raton High School.
And for people that didn't
know, one of the best play-
ers in the US soccer team,

NBA 2010 Playoffs

By: Stefano Tinucci Tozzi

he 2010 edition of
the NBA Playoffs
are well underway
and we already have some
of the answers the regu-
lar season did not give us.
The Dallas Mavericks are
still not a legitimate title
contender, the Denver Nug-
gets greatly missed coach
George Karl he was side-
lined with cancer but be-
yond that they still lack that
key ingredient to progress
to the next level and all-
star Carmelo Anthony is
beginning to raise serious
doubts as to whether he can
truly be the best player on a
championship winning team,
the Oklahoma City Thunder
looks to be the real deal and
with such a young and tal-
ented core and with enough
cap space to add a max free
agent this off-season look
for this team to challenge
the established NBA hier-
archy in the not too distant
future, and down in Miami
this post-season made it
abundantly clear that team

President Pat Riley must
come through on his gran-
diose vision and the pres-
sure on him to build a con-
tender for next season is
palpable and justifiably so.
(1) Cleveland Cavaliers
v. (4) Boston Celtics or as
it's being known as LeB-
ron's Elbow v. the Elderly
3. Through three games in
this series not much has
been found out except that
both teams look very vul-
nerable; as was evidenced
through two games in
Cleveland when the Cava-
liers were lucky to escape
with a win in Game 1 and in
Game 2 when point guard
Rajon Rondo ran circles
around Cleveland's defense
all night en route to lead-
ing his Celtics to a 104-86
triumph which gave Bos-
ton home-court advantage
in the series. As the scene
shifted to Boston so did the
script in Game 3 the "in-
jured" LeBron James was
masterful in posting a near
triple-double fit only for a
king. His 38-point, 7-as-
sist, and 8-rebound effort

allowed Cleveland to hand
the Boston Celtics their
most lopsided home playoff
defeat in their storied his-
tory. Where the series goes
from here is hard to deter-
mine but Cleveland even
with all their flaws seem to
just have a little too much
for a Boston squad that ap-
pears to have little beyond
the magnificent Rondo and
power forward Kevin Gar-
nett who himself is not
what he once was. Predic-
tion: Cavaliers in 7
My predictions would pit
Cleveland vs. Orlando in
the East in a re-match of last
year's Eastern Conference
Finals and though both ros-
ters are changed from last
season I don't expect a dif-
ferent result. Here, I see the
Orlando Magic representing
the Eastern Conference in
the NBAFinals. In the West
the Suns would face the
defending champion Los
Angeles Lakers and while
I do like a lot of the things
this new Suns teams have
shown I just think they are
outgunned by a loaded Lak-

ers squad so I see them van-
quishing a worthy foe in the
Phoenix Suns to advance to
the Finals to complete a re-
match of last year's NBA
Finals. And in this replay of
last year's Finals I do see a
different outcome; while it
would not shock me to see
the Lakers repeat I feel as
though they've been miss-
ing just about 10% of what
they had last year all season

and I think this is the stage
where it will come back to
bite them. On the other hand
Orlando received heavy
criticism for overhauling
a roster which reached the
Finals last season and it
has taken a while for all the
parts to jell but now at the
time when it matters most -
granted, they've played play-
off neophyte Charlotte and
the hugely disappointing

Hawks but they sure have
looked impressive they
seem to have hit their stride
and their yearlong sacrifi-
ce will be rewarded when

Lynn softball honors

seniors in season finale

By Jeffrey Messman

University's softball team

recently with an 11-2 loss to
Nova Southeastern.
The Fighting Knights bid
farewell to seniors Elizabeth
Hawkins, Rachael Larkins,
Cristie Kaufman, Nikki Pal-
lister, Kathleen Smith and
Mika Tatar before the game.
Nova Southeastern (45-15,
19-5 SSC) jumped to a 9-0
lead after the top of the third
before the Knights (24-31,
7-17 SSC) rallied back with
a pair in the bottom of the

frame. The Sharks would
close out the game in the
sixth with two more to run-
rule the Blue and White.
Brittany Gross and Jordan
Angel collected two hits
each for LU in the loss. A
day after tying the program
mark for hits in a season,
Gross broke the record in
her third plate appearance
with a flare single into right
Katrina Lavadan, Smith and
Hawkins each added hits for
the Blue and White.
