HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Pedro!!!


The Boca Raton Tribune team wish Pedro,
our real boss, a wonderful birthday


By Dale M. King

BOCA RATON En-
joy the free parking on
Boca Raton city streets
during this summer.
By fall, parking meters
are expected to sprout
up around the down-
town, Mizner Park and
the beach, tapping driv-
ers for cash to stash
their vehicles.


The City Council has
approved the location
of nearly 400 paid park-
ing meters in places like
Mizner Park, Palmetto
Park Road near the
beach and the city park-
ing lot at the corner of
North Federal Highway
and NE Second Street.
The installation of me-
ters is being done to
raise additional revenue


for the city at a time
when budget figures are
tight. Officials figure to
raise between $600,000
to $700,000 a year by
charging for parking.
The metering program
has gotten the OK from
all council members ex-
cept Anthony Majhess,
who has consistently
voted against it.
During the most recent


meeting at which me-
ters were discussed, the
council voted 4-1- with
Majhess on the "nay"
side to create parking
meter zones in the city,
and approved spending
$339,659 to buy and in-
stall the timing devices.
Meters are scheduled to
be installed by October.

The Reds won 11-0. And in 1995, the Diamond-

Crist inks bill to create independent

medical education program at FAU


/I


By Dale M. King


BOCA RATON All the
i's are dotted and the t's
are crossed, and Gov.
Charlie Crist's signature
is affixed to the bottom of
the legislation authorizing
the establishment of Flo-
rida Atlantic University's
independent medical edu-
cation program.
The approval came this
week after the doctor of
medicine program was
approved by the Florida
Board of Governors inApril
and received approval by
FAU's Board of Trustees
in February.
"This landmark legisla-
tion signed by Governor
Crist will create new and
diverse opportunities at
Florida Atlantic Universi-
ty that will benefit Florid-
ians for decades to come,"
said Nancy Blosser, chair
of FAU's Board of Trus-
tees.
"We are extremely grate-
ful to the governor for
his support of this key
research and educational
initiative, and we appre-
ciate his foresight and
wisdom in preparing for
Florida's future. We also
extend sincerest thanks
to Representative Adam
Hasner and Senator Joe
Negron, the sponsors of


this legislation, for their
vital leadership."
"What an important day
for Florida Atlantic Uni-
versity," said John Pritchett,
FAU's interim president.
"We are grateful to the
governor, Representative
Hasner, Senator Negron
and all of our supporters
who believe that FAU's
medical education pro-
gram will serve as a lea-
der, combining unique,
state-of-the-art medical
education with modem
research."
The new FAU medical
education program will
employ a unique Conti-
nuity Medicine Curricu-
lum whose characteristics
include a smaller, more
interactive learning en-
vironment; interdiscipli-
nary and community
collaboration; patient-cen-
tered, self-directed lear-
ning; small learning com-
munities; continuity of
care, patient safety, and
comprehensive, chronic
disease management; ear-
ly introduction of clinical
training in multiple com-
munity-based hospital and
outpatient settings; and a
state-of-the-art medical
simulation center.
In addition to offering
the M.D. degree, FAU
proposes to offer a dual
M.D./Ph.D. option in part-
nership with the Scripps
Institute Kellogg School
of Science and Techno-
logy, which would confer
a doctorate degree. FAU
estimates that up to 15
percent of its M.D. stu-
dents could take advan-
tage of this option.
"The Scripps Research
Institute congratulates FAU
for achieving indepen-
dent status for its medical
school, and we look for-


ward to partnering with
them to both expand the
offerings of their MD pro-
gram and create an inno-
vative and exciting M.D./
Ph.D. track," said Harry
Orf, Ph.D., vice president
of scientific operations for
Scripps Florida.
Student and residency trai-
ning will be made avai-
lable throughout hospitals
in Palm Beach and Bro-
ward counties, including
Boca Raton Community
Hospital, JFK, Bethesda,
Cleveland Clinic, Holy
Cross, West Boca Medical
Center, Memorial Health
Care System of Broward
County, and St. Mary's.
Students will have the
opportunity to work side-
by-side with physicians
in the diagnosis and treat-
ment of patients.
"It is critically impor-
tant that we invest in
the next generation of
physicians," said Ste-
ven Wexner, M.D., chief
academic officer at Cle-
veland Clinic Florida.
"Cleveland Clinic is de-
dicated to its mission
of excellence in patient
care, research and educa-
tion. We are thrilled that
FAU's medical students
will be able to take part in
this innovative education
program. This new part-
nership with FAU will
also help to address the
shortage of trainees in
accredited residency pro-
grams in South Florida."
FAU's medical education
program will be housed at
the Charles E. Schmidt Col-
lege of Biomedical Science
on the Boca Raton campus.
The target date for the inau-
gural class to begin is fall
2011, with total enrollment
of the program reaching
246 students by 2014.

Suspect charged with murder in death

of passenger in car Continuedfrom page 3


An officer in an unmarked
vehicle observed an older
model Mercury driving
slowly through the par-
king lot.
The car stopped next to a
blue Toyota and the pas-
senger in the Mercury,
later identified as Earl
Storey, smashed the back
window, police said. The
officer activated his police
lights and Storey jumped
back into the passenger
seat of the Mercury. The
driver, later identified as
Eddie Cooper, fled the
scene.
While leaving the park-
ing lot at a high rate of


speed, police said, Co-
oper rammed the unmar-
ked police car. An officer
responding to the scene
threw Stop Sticks (tire de-
flation devices) in front of
the Mercury as it headed
south on Airport Road.
The Stop Sticks punc-
tured two tires on the
Mercury, but the suspects
continued to flee.
Officers followed the car
west on Glades Road and
onto the southbound en-
trance ramp to 1-95, whe-
re Cooper lost control,
struck a light post and
stopped on 1-95.
The passenger, Storey, e-


xited the vehicle and ran
across the southbound
lanes of the interstate,
police said. Storey then
jumped over the cement
barrier and attempted to
cross the northbound lanes
when he was struck by a
motorist. Storey was pro-
nounced dead at the scene.
Cooper remained in the
vehicle and was arrested
without incident, police
said. Cooper had identi-
fication cards from other
burglary victims concea-
led in his underpants.
Those burglaries occurred
earlier in the evening in
another jurisdiction.

Boca city ordinances
citizens to fend off solicitors by
posting a sign like this on their
property.
BOCARATON The Boca
Raton Police Services
Department's Crime Pre-
vention Unit recently in-
troduced its newest cam-
paign, which addresses
the concerns of solicita-
tion at private residences.
"The community respon-
se was so overwhelming
we decided to host a se-
ries of community educa-


tion meetings addressing
the laws and ordinances
relating to soliciting," said
Sergeant Debbie Landos-
key.
The laws governing soli-
citing are complicated, she
said. However, there is a
city ordinance that helps
residents avoid unwanted
soliciting. The ordinance
states that it is unlawful
for any person to solicit
at a home where a sign
is displayed near the en-
trance that reads "No so-
liciting" or "No peddling"
or words to that effect.
The meetings are open to


all residents of the City of
Boca Raton and will co-
ver information relating
to soliciting statutes and
ordinances. The signs
will be limited to one per-
son per household.
The meetings will be held
at 7 p.m. in the Royal Palm
Room of the Boca Raton
Community Center, 150
Crawford Boulevard, on
June 1, 3, 10, and 17. Sign
quantities are limited. Res-
idents planning to attend
should RSVP with the date
they will be attending by
sending an e-mail to www.
Crimewatch @myboca.us.

No dogs allowed? That's outrageous!


You've undoubted-
ly seen the war-
ning, "No Dogs
Allowed" on various buil-
dings, businesses and
properties. But did you
ever think about what that
admonition really means,
and how it sets a barrier
that disallows exceptions
and explanations?
Sometimes, it defies ex-
planation. I remember
seeing a sign on a post
office door years ago that
said, "No dogs allowed,
except seeing-eye dogs."
Now tell me, who's go-
ing to read that the blind
person or the dog? Leave
it to a federal agency to
come up with some ludi-
crous commandment.
Anyway, the whole dog
prohibition thing came
home to me this past
weekend. As I often do,
I spent Saturday morn-
ing doing errands, and,
when I can, I take my
dog along. He's a lovable,
10-pound poodle with a
cute face and wonderful
personality who loves to
ride in the car.
I had to see a business as-
sociate in Boca, and took
my dog along for the ride.
This friend of mine, as it
turned out, called to tell


me he was delivering
meals to senior citizens,
and that he was in a gated
community for those age
55 and over, in a city near
Boca. So, I told him I'd
meet him there.
When I got to the gate, a
Barney Fyfe-type guard
stormed my vehicle and
said, "No dogs allowed."
I started to tell him that I
was not going to upset the
serenity of the 55-and-
over community (after
all, I'm over 55 myself),
but he cut me off in mid-
sentence and repeated,
"No dogs allowed." Then,
basically, he told me to
get off the property.
I sheepishly drove around
the guardhouse and out to
the street where I called
my friend and told him
I'd have to meet him so-
mewhere else.
This incident really set
me off. Not so much be-
cause this particular com-
plex abhors dogs, but be-
cause the guard refused to
listen to my explanation.
Had I met my friend in-
side the complex, I proba-
bly would not even have
gotten out of my car. He
could have passed me the
information from his car,
and not a single dog paw


would have touched the
ground.
Not only do I wonder
what it is about dogs that
makes them canis non
grata in these restrictive,
55-and-over, no kids al-
lowed complexes, but I
fear people who interpret
the letter of the law with-
out giving any thought to
the spirit.
If a building in this com-
plex were to collapse,
would that guard tell the
first responders not to
bring in the rescue dogs?
Would a person suspected
of having cancer recoil
from a disease-sniffing
dog?
I know for certain that
many complexes around
here prohibit people from
having pet therapy dogs
in their homes. This is
the same as telling people
they cannot take their
prescription medication.
Doctors actually do pres-
cribe pets for therapy, but
I've seen homeowner as-
sociations fight like hell
to keep them out. Proba-
bly the same ones who try
to deny people the right
to fly an American flag on
their property.
This incident Saturday
wasn't the first time I had


dog trouble at a gated
property. My wife's
cousin lived in one of
the units, and she asked
me to check it every
now and then while she
was up north during
the summer. One day,
I happened to take my
dog for a ride, brought
her into the unit on a
leash, spent a couple of
minutes checking it out
and then returned to my
car.
A man I didn't even
know approached and
read me the riot act
about no dogs, refusing
to listen to the fact that
I wasn't a resident, I re-
ally wasn't a visitor, the
dog was a small, well-
trained and housebro-
ken animal and I was
trying to do a favor for
a resident. I know he
called my wife's cousin,
and probably turned me
in to the association,
too.
Why don't we forget
about "No Dogs Allo-
wed" and, instead, say,
"Please abide by dog
"regulations?" Total pro-
hibitions are just plain
stupid. Regulations are
more civilized.

*- POSITIVE LIVING--*
By Dr. Synesio Lyra

When Others Count on You!


Thinking of others and do-
ing something for others
should be an imperative
in the experi-
ence of every
human being.
Every individ-
ual, anywhere,
is surrounded
with people
and situations
Dr. Synesio LJ
for which often,
one may have the answer
and the means of respond-
ing to them.
Doing good does not re-
quire lessons of prepara-
tion, or the assignment
of some organization or
institution, before its ex-
ecution. The more sponta-
neously one responds to a
need, the greater the effect
will always be!
Because of prevailing
conditions in the world
at any time, any place, in
any age, people should
count on other's personal
initiative in responding to
varied conflicts before us,
just as they also expect


swift, concrete motion
in emergency tasks to be
performed.
We need to measure
situations and an-
ticipate consequences
with regard to what
one may attempt to
do for others. Human
spontaneity needs to
be wisdom-led and
yra
Sdivinely prompted.
Thinking of others should
lead one into refraining
from certain actions, as
well as in specifically pro-
viding the things beneficial
to them. Sometimes doing
nothing can even be the best
choice, while in other occa-
sions, offering little may be
preferable than attempting
too much. Hospital visits,
for instance, should be of
limited duration; they are
not social calls but a mere
manifestation of friendly
presence at a time of weak-
ness and needed rest.
It's imperative that we hon-
our the pride and privacy
of others, never forcing


our way into them, just be-
cause we are convinced we
have the only remedy they
need. Many people choose
to maintain their person-
al independence, which
would be helpers should
understand and respect.
The emotional landscape
in each individual varies
tremendously, and what we
may think to be adequate
and right in one situation,
may be just the opposite in
others.
A sound approach entails
encouraging people, in
certain situations, to do
what they can, to act on
their own, to achieve what
is within their reach, to
make an effort they might
think impossible, even in
self-discovery; to tap into
God's unlimited resources!
It's essential that, as help-
ers, we never offer false
hope, nor make unrealistic
promises. It's not due to
much speaking that one
shall be heard by people in
need of assistance. Quite


often just being silently
present to others, in their
moments of sorrow, fear,
and need, may be the ideal
balm they require to heal
their wounds!
Remember, therefore, that
when others count on you,
they just prefer to know
where they can find you, if
they so choose. It is their
need which must be met,
not your own! Yet, what-
ever good you ever do
unto others never leaves
you untouched; it always
comes back to you in far
greater measure than what
you've sown or shared!

Dr Synesio Lyra, Jr is a Flo-
rida resident who, for many
years, was a professor at the
post-graduate level. He is a
writer, a sought-after confer-
ence speaker a man who lived
in five continents of the world,
having received his education
in four of them. When he re-
sided in southern California,
he wrote a weekly column for
the daily "Anaheim Bulletin, "
which was carried for about
six years, until he moved to

Beach & Park District meeting


On Monday, May 24,
2010 at the Community
Center of Sugar Sand
Park, The Greater Boca
Raton Beach and Park
District held its regularly
scheduled meeting. Al-
though not on the agenda,
it was announced at the
onset of the meeting that
the Board would address
questions and comments
regarding the property
on AIA referred to as
Ocean Strand. In recent
weeks, there has been
much speculation regard-


ing the possible devel-
opment of this piece of
land and the land directly
across the street on the
beach side. There were
rumors that the park area
would be used for park-
ing, a passive park, and
the land on the east side
would house a beach club
for a project known as
Via Mizner which would
occupy the northeast
comer of Federal High-
way and Camino Real.
Before the Board of Com-
missioners entertained all


quality of our communi-
cations campaigns," said
Thomas Chakurda, vice
president of Communica-
tions at Boca Raton Com-
munity Hospital. "It is grat-
ifying to have members of
our team recognized for
their hard work and talent
in such a meaningful way."
All winners are posted on
the Aster Awards website
(www.AsterAwards.com),
as well as published in

emphatic and made it
abundantly clear that the
Board has no plans to sell
or lease the Ocean Strand
property. Amember of the
Board of Commission-
ers stated that since 1974,
they have never sold or
leased any property under
their jurisdiction. Com-
missioners Elaine Klein-


man and Robert Langford
estimated that the proper-
ty was originally acquired
at a cost of about $14mil-
lion plus the interest paid
on the loan monies. It
was also established that
the property is not zoned
for commercial use.
This meeting was well
attended and very infor-


mative. The fears of the
residents were alleviated
and the Board conducted
itself in an extremely re-
sponsible manner. Com-
missioner Rollins con-
cluded that portion of
the meeting by thanking
the residents for com-

Glades Road Branch Library Reopens

with Ribbon Cutting Event


Photos and Story by:
Susie Botfeld

After more than a year
of renovations, residents
west of Boca Raton will
get their library back.
The Glades Road Branch
Library (formerly known
as the Southwest County
Regional Library) closed
for renovation in Febru-
ary of 2009 and now of-
ficially reopened with a
ribbon cutting ceremo-
ny on Friday, May 21.
Speakers included Palm
Beach County Commis-
sion Chair Burt Aaronson,
Library Director John J.
Callahan III, and Library
Advisory Board Chair El-
len Winikoff.
Renovations to the faci-
lity included enlarging
the Teen area, reconfig-
uring the public service
desks and updating the
paint and carpet and re-
furbishing the furniture.


Outdated fixtures ha-ve
been replaced with new au-
diovisual shelving, which
provides space for ad-
ditional materials. Exis-
ting seating and shelving
were rearranged to give
the facility a more open
feel. Streamlined com-
puter stations, which take
up less floor space, allow
for additional computer
terminals. And probably
the best part of all, there is
now free Wi-Fi available
throughout the building.

The Levis JCC opens their facilities for

families of the Brazilian community


BOCA RATON The Le-
vis JCC, Adolph and Rose
Levis Jewish Community
Center have opened their
facilities for the Brazilian
community to have their
children and adolescents
take Portuguese classes.
The Levis JCC recognized
the increase in the Brazilian
population in Boca and they
have partnered with The
Brazilian Business Group
(BBG) to make this learn-
ing opportunity a reality for
the Brazilians in the com-
munity.
Martin Schneer, head of
The Levis JCC, pointed
out that the institution was
founded with the objec-
tive of preserving Jewish
culture and religion. Years
later, he now perceives as
"highly important the inter-
est and care of the Brazilian
community in preserving
its culture abroad" and that
"we, from The Levis JCC,
are interested in reaching
out our hands and helping
the Brazilian community
in the effort of preserving
its culture in the United
States."
Aloysio Vasconcellos, pres-
ident of the BBG, said that


( . the musical presentation


"as a consequence of the
Portuguese classes, Eng-
lish classes for the student's
parents started to happen.
So, now, while they wait
for their children, they have
the opportunity to learn or
perfect their English."
Approximately 60 children
every Saturday gather at
The Levis JCC's facilities
to learn Portuguese. While
these children learn Por-
tuguese, their parents are
also attending classes to
learn English. Once done,
the children have fun under
professional guidance in a
leisure center in a Portu-
guese spoken environment
while waiting for their par-
ents to finish.
Because this project turned
out to be such a great suc-
cess, more projects are
underway for the Brazil-
ian community. Martin
Schneer, the head director
of The Levis JCC and his
team met with the board
members of the BBG, and
approved new projects to
benefit the Brazilian com-
munity.
One of the plans is to open
the JCC to Brazilians who
are interested in becom-


ing members of The Levis
JCC, which offers a sports
club, like a country club,
with a vast array of cultural
and sportive activities for
its associates, at an annual
cost of $400.00.
Recently, the Levis JCC
had a new addition to their
sports activities; a soccer
program with Thadeu Gon-
calves, from the Brazilian
Soccer Institute, who works
with practices and games
throughout the year for
children and teenagers from
ages 3 to 17.
Another activity that The
Levis JCC is offering to
Brazilians who live in the
region is the Summer Camp
Program, with dates that
vary from June 7th to Au-
gust 6th.
To know more about Por-
tuguese or English classes
(also available for adults),
please send an e-mail to
zaffani@ westchesterintl.
com. To know more about
soccer classes, please con-
tact janeth@levisjcc.org.

rolling their children to the
Summer Camp may con-

Follow

the

pathway

to peace

with

Panache

Dasai

as your

guide
To most of us, be-
ing happy is top
priority. We get
into relationships, take
vaca-tions, watch TV and
occasionally shop but
does that do the trick?
For the most part, it prob-
ably does. But for those
of us with a penchant for
self-discovery it might take
a little more. Sure, shop-
ping can be fun (and a
healthy distraction) and
relationships are great,
but to navigate the world
we live in (oil spills in-
cluded) it usually requires
a more inward search.
That's why I headed over
to the Duncan Center to
attend a workshop given
by Panache Desai called
"Recalibrate Your Life,
Connect to the Divine."
It may sound a bit over-
whelming to connect to the
Divine, but it's not when
you consider that we are
all pretty divine in nature.
Panache considers himself
an Internet service pro-
vider for this type of trans-
formation. And in truth he
really is. His acceleration
program goes to the heart
of our matter, so to speak.
Often we need to clear
away emotions or issues
that take us into a tailspin
(family included in this
scenario). It is not uncom-
mon to find oneself in the
midst of clear sight (or
insight) about something


' W

that has been bothering
us for a long time when in
the presence of Panache.
That clarity is often what
sets us free from the an-
ger and disappointment
we think is caused by the
world around us. The se-
cret is that what annoys
or upsets us is really coming
fromwithin- and not caused
by our jobs, friends or
loved ones. I know it
sounds radical, but it is
something that sages and
Holy people have been
telling us for centuries.
"It's normal to be angry
or upset about something
that has happened. But ul-
timately you have to deal
with yourself, and that
means not suppressing your
emotions. There is always
a place of peace that ex-
ists within. When we step
into that space no matter
what is going on, we feel
peaceful," said Panache.
We learned a great way
to step into that space of
peace (and understan-
ding) and it has to do
with breathing. "Watch
your breath and be aware of
the fact that you are breath-
ing. When you feel bad,
connect to your breath (or


simply watch your breath)
and it will take you out
of the panic or sadness."
I tried this breathing stress
buster the day after the
workshop and it worked
just as Panache said it
would. I focused my at-
tention on my breath (and
took long deep breaths)
and like magic, the fee-
lings came to the surface
like a buoy in the water.
Rather than stew in my
angst, I was able to resolve
what was bothering me.
What makes these work-
shops so special is that
Panache acts as a catalyst
to connect us to that place
of peace within. At some
level, we all know what is
best for us (a hot fudge sun-
dae withstanding) but most
of the time we need some-
one who can lead us there.
That space is our connec-
tion to our hearts, which is
often hidden by our mo-
mentary needs or wants.
Let's face it. Life is not
always a bowl of cherries,
but that doesn't mean we
can't have the whipped
cream when we need it.
"You are not here to suf-
fer, you are here to be
vital. Everything that's
going on is perfect when
you step out of blame and
into acceptance you have
the opportunity to grow
and connect to the peace
that resides within you."
Panache will be in Cin-
cinnati June 4 6, St. Pe-
tersburg June 18-19, at
the Omega Institute in
NY from June 27 July
2 and in Delray Beach
later in the year. Call (239)

Written by Chris-
topher Demos-Brown, the
play runs through June 20
as the final production at
the Manalapan location.
Florida Stage will move to
West Palm Beach, where it
has entered in a partnership
with Kravis Center.
Nudity is generally an


tive Republican.
What makes the situation
even more explosive is that
Joe was born in Cuba and
came to Miami as a boy.
The Cuban exile communi-
ty in Miami is notoriously
conservative; in fact you
could say radically so.
The fact that Joe aspires


to be a US Senator makes
it imperative to make it at
least seem that he is a regu-
lar Joe, a conventionally
hetero guy in love with his
wife Liz (Natasha Sherritt)
and devoted to his teenage
son, who is referred to, but
never seen.
Playwright Demos-Brown
is a practicing attorney
who was raised in Miami
and still lives there. This
play has a lot of hot-button
issues, and perhaps that's
why it is making its de-
but in Manalapan, some
60 miles away. I don't
think it is stereotyping to
say Cuban-Americans are
passionate in their beliefs.
In Miami it is a fact and
part of a violent history of
protest, dissent and even
bombings and killings since
Castro's forces defeated
pro-US president Batista
and took over the island
nation in 1959.
Dan Domingues is a new-
comer to Florida Stage and
perfect for the role of Joe, a
slick character if there ever
was one.

good looks and the buff
physique of a guy who re-
ally cares about physical
appearances.
At the same time Joe is a
weasel; a liar, a hypocrite,
a user and a coward-yet we
have to believe in his abili-
ty to charm people and win
elections.
For that understanding we
have Uncle Manny (John
Herrera), Cuban freedom-
fighter, Joe's mentor, and
above all his political spin
doctor.
Manny is a fascinating
character and all too true to
life. In fact all the charac-
ters are true to life, inclu-
ding Joe's self-sacrificing
wife (Natasha Sherritt), his


sarcastic boyfriend Cliff
(Anthony Rinaldi), dogged
Miami Police Detective
Grant (Brandon Morris),
and Joe's late, lamented
dad (Bill Schwartz).
The main problem with
all of this is how will it
play in Peoria? "When the
Sun Shone Brighter" is so
site specific I can imagine
people in the heartland
scratching their heads.
Maybe that's why the play-
wright and director Louis
Tyrrell felt the opening
blast of male nudity was
not gratuitous but essential
to understanding the main
character.
Still, it's just a tad uncom-
fortable seeing this show

if she is a worldly, broad-
minded adult.

Come to The WaterCol-

happy hour to witness this
great musician.


At the beginning of the
month, I had the honor
of being asked to go back
to my old elementary
school which I was a part
of from 3rd grade until
5th grade. In 4th Grade,
I had the privilege to be
part of a little 4th grade
class that was taught by
a happy red-head named
Mrs. Magnus. She left a
great impression on me,
but after I left Del Prado
Elementary School I lost
all contact with her. Later,
during my senior year in
high school, I found her
via Facebook and was in
constant contact with her
for about a year. During
that time, she asked me
if I could come in to her
class and just talk about
writing, how to follow
their dreams and how to
never give up. So, need-
less to say, I went over-
joyed to Del Prado this
past month to talk to the
kids. These kids were
nothing short of amaz-
ing. They were attentive,
asked questions, and be-
haved in a manner that


was amazing.
The kids were asked by
Mrs. Magnus to write
letters to the newspaper,
and to me. In the next is-
sue, I will post the most
interesting ones. The kids
have some great ideas
about current events like
the recent oil spill in the


Gulf of Mexico, the Ari-
zona Immigration Law
and many others. All the
kids were great to be
around and I was glad I
was able to go back to my
old school and give back
to a school that gave me
so much.

By Pastor Sandy


Making The Most Of Life


One of my favorite books
of the Bible is Ecclesias-
tes. It may sound
like a weird name
for a book, but it
means "preacher"
or "someone who
addresses an assem-
bly." It was written Pr.
by Solomon, who, accord-
ing to God, was the wisest
man who ever lived. Here
was a man who had every-
thing, tried anything, on a
scale we can only imagine,
and found it all vanity.
Every chapter is packed
with wise, pithy truth. In
chapter nine he lays down
at least two primary truths:
(1) there are things we can-
not control and, (2) there
are things that we can con-
trol... and knowing the dif-
ference between the two
is the key to a productive,
peaceful life. "Whatever
you do, do well. For when
you go to the grave, there
will be no work orplanning
or knowledge or wisdom."
(Ecclesiastes 9.10 NLT)
You can't do everything,
but you can do something,
so do it well!!!
If you take a victimized at-
titude toward life and ap-
proach life passively, you
will miss much of what life
has to offer. Solomon says,
enjoy the simple pleasures
and cultivate fun, joy, and
humor: "So go ahead eat
your food with joy, and
drinkyour wine with a hap-
py heart, for God approves
of this!" (Ecclesiastes 9.7
NLT)
Too many of us begin our
young adult years thinking
that once we get everything
in place, we'll live happily
ever after, but Solomon ad-
vocates an intentionality to
find pleasure in the simple
things of life. Happy, wise
people find joy in the routine
and mundane, and learn to
live happily where they are.


After the well known au-
thor Erma Bombeck
found out she was
dying of cancer she
wrote:
IF I HAD MY LIFE
TO LIVE OVER
I would have gone to
ndy bed when I was sick
instead of pretending the
earth would go into a hold-
ingpattern iflweren t there
for the day.
I would have burned the
pink candle sculpted like a
rose before it melted in stor-
age.
I would have talked less
and listened more.
I would have invitedfriends
over to dinner even if the
carpet was stained or the
sofa faded
Iwouldhave eaten the pop-
corn in the 'good' living
room and worried much
less about the dirt when
someone wanted to light a
fire in the fireplace.
Iwouldhave taken the time
to listen to my gi, inll '
ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted
the car windows be rolled
up on a summer day be-
cause my hair hadjust been
teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the
lawn with my children and
not worried about grass
stains.
I would have cried and
laughed less while watch-
ing television and more
/ i,.,i watching life.
I would never have bought
c(,ni I/M, :,, n because it was
practical, would 't show
soil, or was guaranteed to
last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away
nine months of pregnancy
I'd have cherished every
moment and realized that
the wonderment growing in-
side me was the only chance
in life to assist God in a
miracle.
When my kids kissed me


impetuously I would never
have said "Later Now go
get washed up for din-
ner "
There would have been more
"I love you's. More "I'm
sorrys"
But mostly, given another
shot at life, Iwouldseize ev-
ery minute, lookatitandre-
ally see it, live it and never
give it back "
Christianity, not religion,
has always been straight-
forward in establishing the
fact the world with all of
its evil and suffering was
not God's original intention
and that it is and was the
consequences of man's dis-
obedience to God's divine
plan. Furthermore, Scripture
makes it clear that the pres-
ent state of the world is tem-
porary and that God became
intimately and sacrificially
involved in making it right.
Yes, life can be cruel some-
times but guess what, it hap-
pens to everyone and it doesn't
have to steal all the joy out of
the rest of your life. One au-
thor wrote: "Don't be bashful,
Bite in. Pick it up with your
fingers and let the juice run
down your chin. Life is ready
and ripe NOW whenever you
are. You don't need a knife
or fork or spoon or napkin
or tablecloth.., for there is no
core, or stem, or rind, or pit, or
seed, or skin to throw away. "
When I Relax I Feel Guilty
by Tim Hansel.
Know this, the God of the
Bible is a good God, com-
ing to "give us life and that
life more abundant."

require my atten-

was born my husband
and I decided I should
stop working, and spend
my time at home caring
for our home and daugh-
ter.
I filed a counter petition
asking for permanent ali-
mony, as taking care of
the children is a full time
job. We are preparing for
mediation. My attorney
tells me that it is not cer-
tain that a judge would
award permanent alimo-
ny, and we should con-
sider agreeing to alimony
for a period of years, in-
stead.
Although we will each
receive about two mil-
lion dollars in assets from
the distribution of marital
property, it does not ap-
pear fair to me that I not


riage under Florida
legal prece-dent.
There is no presumption
for or against permanent
alimony in gray area mar-
riages. That means, under
proper circumstances an
appropriate amount of
permanent alimony can
be awarded.
Your judge could rule
that because you and
your husband agreed you
should give up your ca-
reer to take care of the
home and children, and
the children need special
care, it is impossible for
you to go back to your
career, and award perma-
nent alimony.
Alternatively, a judge
could rule that the inco-
me on the money you are
receiving from distribu-
tion, after the 12-year
marriage, might ease your


way back into single sta-
tus, and that only a short
period of rehabilitative
alimony is necessary for
you to resume your career
and arrange for appropri-
ate day care.
A Florida appellate court,
in reviewing either of the
possible decisions, could
rule that the judge acted
within his or her discre-
tion, and uphold either
award. Under these cir-
cumstances, you and your
counsel should carefully
consider all of the alter-
natives developed at me-
diation.
You should also consid-
er the cost of litigation,
and the reputation your
judge has as to generos-
ity or lack of generosity
for granting permanent
alimony, in light of some
recent appellate deci-
sions re-defining appro-
priate lifestyle expense
against the best interest of
women. Predicting what
a judge will do in a close
case is guesswork.

*-- ASK DR MAN -
By Dr. Daniel Man


Liquid lift is minimally invasive


alternative to surgery


Dear Dr Man, I over- restores volume and pro-
heard some ladies in vides a younger looking
our locker room talk- appearance. The most
ing about a liquid face- common injectable fill-
lift. They were saying ers are Evolence, Per-
that this requires lane, Radiesse,
no surgery. How Restylane, Juve-
is this possible? derm and Sculp-
I've wanted a tra. The filler
facelft for a long M your surgeon uses
time, but I don 't will depend on
want surgery. I'm your skin type,
very interested in Dr Daniel an medical history,


knowing more.
You overheard correctly.
A liquid lift
does not require surgery.
Liquid lifts are a mini-
mally invasive alterna-
tive to a facelift. When
having a liquid lift, the
plastic surgeon injects
fillers under the skin in
order to restore volume.
There is no cutting in-
volved.
Instead of undergoing
surgery, this less invasive
treatment is completed in
a short amount of time
with local or no anes-
thesia necessary. Fillers
plump up the skin and fill
in from the inside out, as
opposed to stretching the
skin to a smoother ap-
pearance as in a surgical
face lift. This procedure
reduces the appearance
of lines and wrinkles,


and the look you desire
to achieve.
Another option in liquid
facelifts is fat injections,
also referred to as lipos-
culpture. Liposculpture
uses a patient's own fat
to create volume and fill
in sunken or depressed
areas of the face. This is
excellent for correcting
aging of the face and loss
of volume in the cheeks,
brows, tear trough, na-
solabial folds, lips, acne
pits and scars underneath
the jaw line. Fat is har-
vested from the patient's
own body, usually taken
from the hip, stomach,
back or other areas. This
fat is injected into the
cheeks, jaw line, lips,
brows, eye lids, smile
lines (nasolabial folds)
and sad lines (marionette
lines). The procedure is


long lasting but will need
to be repeated. Harvested
fat can be frozen and re-
injected as needed.
Liquid facelifts usually
take 15 minutes to one
hour, depending on the
amount of filler needed.
Since the procedure is
minimally invasive, only
local anesthesia or no
anesthesia at all is nec-
essary. While there may
be a temporary stinging
or burning sensation,
this usually dissipates in
a short amount of time.
Risks are uncommon, but
may include swelling,
bruising, infection, aller-
gic reaction, or irregulari-
ties in the skin's contour.



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

School District honors Delray Beach

as outstanding business partner


DELRAY BEACH Del-
ray Beach was recently in-
ducted into the Palm Beach
County School District's
Hall of Fame for its contin-
uous support of education
in the city's nine schools.
Mayor Woodie McDuffie
and City Manager Da-
vid Harden received
the award from Schools
Superintendent Dr. Art
Johnson at the annual
Business Partner Break-
fast earlier this month.
Delray Beach is one of
only five outstanding
business partners in the
School District Hall of
Fame and the only munic-


ipality to be recognized.
Past winners have includ-
ed Columbia Hospital,
Nutrition S'Mart, Wa-
chovia and the Anne and
Sam Klein Jewish Coali-
tion for Literacy.
In his acceptance speech,
Mayor McDuffie told
the audience that Del-
ray Beach is a city that
takes education seriously
and cited the Education
Board as an example for
other cities to follow.
City support for Atlan-
tic High School's career
academies was part of the
award narrative read by
Superintendent Johnson


to the audience of more
than 800 volunteer and
business partners. Accept-
ing for the city, the mayor
described the depth and
breadth of the city's com-
mitment to education.
In a separate award, the
city's International Tennis
Center was honored for its
three year partnership with
Atlantic's Sports Market-
ing Academy at the annual
ATP Tournament. Delray
Beach International Ten-
nis Championships Exec-
utive Director John Butler
accepted the award for the
Tennis Center.


What business are you in?


You may say that's an
easy question to answer!
Asking industry leaders
this question seems basic
and simplistic. Is it? But,
this is one of the classic
questions that should be
answered in depth for any
business to survive and
prosper in this turbulent
marketplace.
Many years ago the rail-
road companies were fa-
ced with serious financial
problems. They were lo-
sing their market share.
We have to credit the mar-
keting genius of Theo-
dore Levitt, who used the
railroad industry as an
example of an industry
not knowing the business
they were in as a reason
for their failure to prosper.
As the story goes, the
railroad industry leaders
called upon consultants to
find ways of dealing with
declining revenues and
thus save their business.
After studying the situa-
tion, the consultants as-
ked the railroad tycoons
the question, "What busi-
ness are you in?" "We are
in the railroad business,"
they answered, "and we
certainly didn't need a
consultant to ask us that."


Finally the consultants dustry, total track-miles
told them that the problem have fallen from 319,000
was that they were in 1970 to 170,000
not in the railroad and trucks still
business but they have to be called
are in the, "Trans- on to get most go-
portation Business." .ods to a final desti-
The railroad execs nation.
were presumed to GeraldSherman Think of the possi-


say, "What else is new?"
What the consultants we-
re trying to convey to the
railroad executives is that
being in the 'transporta-
tion business' meant that
they would have to com-
pete with the airlines and
trucking companies and
possibly other areas deal-
ing with transportation.
They also advised them
to invest in ground and air
transportation, by buying
an existing trucking com-
pany or airline or organiz-
ing a new company.
Marketing by other means
of transportation than
theirs would be crucial
in these changing times.
How about B& O Airlines
& Overland Trucking ser-
vices? But lo and behold,
the railroad folks would
not take that advice and
the rest is history!
Although the railroad in-
dustry today remains part
of the transportation in-


abilities if railroad compa-
nies acquired other means
of transportation to relate
to the changing times.
The railroad companies
that remained have not
shared in the growth of
the booming transporta-
tion business. The rail-
road industry was on the
wrong track!
It is time that companies
redefine their business
and ask themselves the
question: What business
are you in? By finding
answers to this question,
you will be opening up
new doors for future op-
portunities to expand your
business.

My name is Bella. I am 9 years old and I was born on Halloween. During my
younger years, I used to live in Boca Raton in the backyard of my owners (who
are Brazilians). If you guys know anything about Brazilian Dog owners, they like
to keep us outside and not inside the house. Later in my life, my owners moved to
Boynton Beach and to their dismay there was no backyard in this new house! Yes,
this means I slept inside the house for the first time! From that day on, I have won
the heart of the entire family. From Matthew (my owner) to Bianca (who used to be
scared of me). They all began to love me and now I feel like I'm part of the family.

BOCA RATON "I

Lustig recently told
members of the Ro-
tary Club of Boca
Raton.
The past district go-
vernor of District

ches from Boca Ra-
ton to Titusville was
referring to the out-
pouring of support

Lustig, who is also chair-
man of the Caribbean
District Disaster Relief
Fund, said local Rotary
clubs have been coor-
dinating with members
of the 17 Rotary clubs
operating in Haiti to de-
liver medical supplies and
food. Also heading to the
shattered island are Shel-
terBoxes, the invention
of a Rotarian in England
which provides housing,
food and survival sup-
plies to as many as 10
people.

alysis equipment to Haiti

direct to Haiti." Lustig
said it is sometimes easier
to avoid the hard-pressed
Port-au-Prince airport to
get the materials into the
battered country.
"When we get there, we
are met by fellow Rota-
rians who know where
the needs are," he added.
Of the $27,000 collected
throughout District 6930,
all but $87 has been spent
- and more is being col-
lected. A total of $12,573
purchased 4,400 pounds
of rice, greens and corn
oil, and Rotarians used
$8,746 to purchase a 2002
Suburban for patient trans-
port.
In all, Rotary clubs have
combined to send four
containers of medical
supplies, 50,000 pounds
of food, ambulances and
a school bus to Haiti.


Just from the
clubs in Area 1
(Boca to West
Delray Beach),
members col-
lected $35,000,
Lustig said, to
purchase enough
ShelterBoxes to
serve 350 people.
Among the first
in-ternational
relief workers to
reach Haiti were
volunteers from
ShelterBox, a
U.K.- based di-

By Dale Smith

Earlier in May, Saint An-
drews High School se-
nior, Steve Geffrard won
the national heavyweight
Golden Gloves title in
Little Rock, Arkansas,
upsetting defen-
ding champion
Jordan Shimmell
of Michigan in
a 4-1 decision, a
decision that also
clinched the na-
tional title for
Team Florida.
The Saint Andrews
High School se-
nior, who also at-
tended J.C. Mit-
chell Elementary
School and Boca
Middle School,
has been learning
to box at the Boca
Raton Police A-
thletic League
(PAL) gym since
he was thirteen,
training under
Coaches and
Mentors Steve
Colazzo and Joe Oms.
Their goal was simple;
to get Geffrard prepared
to represent Team USA
at the 2012 Summer
Olympic Games in Lon-
don. The Police Athletic
League has been working
with St. Andrews to as-
sist Geffrard in obtaining
financial aid and scholar-
ships. Geffrard has not
only succeed in the box-
ing ring but he has also
succeeded academically,
as he is set to graduate
from Saint Andrew High
School in the upcom-
ing week. A member of
the U.S. Olympic box-
ing team, Geffrard will
be travelling to Colorado
Springs for training at the


Olympic gym and to par-
ticipate in the U.S. Men's
Amateur Open this July.
Steve, who has had ap-
proximately 75 amateur
bouts, recently moved up
in weight class from 178
lbs. to 201 lbs. He said


the boxers in the heavier
class punch harder but are
not as quick. Steve weighs
approximately 190 lbs and
his speed and agility are
his strongest attributes.
Steve was a multi-sport
star in school but now
concentrates on boxing.
He could have turned
professional but will re-
tain his amateur status for
a shot at Olympic gold.
Outside the ring, the stu-
dent-athlete has a quiet,
soft-spoken unassuming
demeanor. He trains hard
almost daily at the gym
run by the PAL, which
is a non-profit organiza-
tion for boys and girls
between the ages of 9-18.
The Boca PAL welcomes
'am- a o-


all youth and the pro-
grams are provided free
of charge and the kids
are mentored by Law En-
forcement officers such
as PAL Vice President
Dennis Reilly and other
community volunteers.

The Countdown To Wade


Hometown Heroes:

Steve Geffrard


member Game 3 of the NBA Finals? What an amazing
comeback by Dwyane Wade that was capitalized by a
Gary Payton jumper.
Tell me, when it was that LeBron led such a great
comeback in the playoffs or Finals? Don't worry, I'll
wait.
Dwyane Wade is team oriented and cares about win-
ning that's it. He doesn't care about personal achieve-
ments as much as he cares about winning. Wade would
be better off with a Stoudamire/Bosh combination rath-
er than a Lebron/Wade combo. The reason for this is
simple, even if Lebron decided to sign with the HEAT;


By: Pedro Heizer

The countdown is on...
We are basically a month
away from the biggest
free agent extravagan-
za in the history of the
NBA. Miami has already
started its We Want Wade
campaign with an inter-
active website, fan kits,
and posters all over Dade
County. And here's the
catch, not many other teams
are doing such a thing. They
are doing it for LeBron
James but not Wade.
Wade is being overlooked
in this free agency be-
cause most, if not all,
teams are looking to
splash the big fish in LeB-
ron, and if they can't get
Lebron, the will go for
the second best in Dwy-
ane. Well, I'm here to
tell you, Dwyane is not
second best to LeBron.
Wade should be getting
as much of publicity as
"king" James is. People
tend to forget that just be-
cause Wade doesn't have
the numbers; it doesn't
mean he's not better than
James. Sure, James has
two MVP awards (Per-
sonal Awards), but who
has the championship, the
ring, and the finals MVP?
Wade is not only in the
same level as LeBron Ja-
mes, but in a year or two
he will surpass him. LeB-
ron has his arrogance and
pride that work against
him. Those are two things
Wade doesn't publicly
show in his emotions.
Wade doesn't give up on
his team when they are
losing, he does some-
thing only the greats do,
and he brings his team
back up from the ashes
of defeat and turns the
game around. Anyone re-

they would still need more pieces to the puzzle. This
team has some serious holes to fill. We need to upgrade
the PG position we need a good low post scorer, we
need rebounders and shooters. What would happen
if we get LeBron James? Miami would have 2 of the
greatest basketball players to ever play the game, but at
what cost? If you seriously think a LeBron/Wade duo
will win a title alone, you are sadly mistaken and naive.
Miami needs Stoudamire and Bosh to bring a champi-
onship at the very least. We would have an inside pre-
sence that we have been lacking since the days Alonzo
Mourning and Shaquille O'Neal. Both Bosh and Stou-
damire have a great inside presence. Have you been
watching the NBA playoffs?
In all, at the very least, the dream of a LeBron/Wade
duo in Miami should not happen and I'll be the first one
to go against it. Having LeBron James playing Dwyane
Wade is the real treat, not having them play together.

Joga Bonito: The Beautiful Game Part II:



The Importance of the World Cup to the United States


By: Stefano Tinucci
Tozzi and Pedro Heizer

In our last issue, we talked
about the importance of
the World Cup to the world
as a whole and I gave
some interesting and in-
formative statics. As many
of you may know by now,
we are about 13 days away
from the start of the great-
est of all sporting events.
32 teams will compete
for the elusive World Cup
Trophy, yet only one will
come out victorious and
have bragging rights for
the next four years. In this
installment of our 3-part
series, Stefano Tozzi will
talk about the importance
of the World Cup to the
United States as a nation.
Why was soccer so big in
the US in the beginning
and then it begun to de-
cline? When will soccer
in the US take off again?
All these are great ques-
tions and by the end of this
story, you will know all
the answers.
Come June 11th the entire
world will stop and focus
its undivided attention on
South Africa. But will the
United States? The FIFA
World Cup is unquestion-
ably the world's greatest


sporting event because
unlike The Super Bowl
that is an annual event and
it's mostly an exclusively
American ritual that the
rest of the world watch-
es solely for the novelty
value, or even Summer
Olympics which do cap-
ture the international spot-
light for one month every
four years. But, besides
Michael Phelps, the USA
"Redeem Team", and those
awe-inspiring Opening Ce-
remonies; what do you re-
member about The 2008
Beijing Olympic Games?
There is nothing like a
World Cup, it is more
than your everyday soc-
cer competition, even the
Olympics hands out a
gold medal for soccer. It is
an understood break in the
natural order of things that
comes along only once ev-
ery four years, it is a time
when any individual can
get out from the daily rut
we call life and revel in the
global game. The World
Cup truly is a stage unlike
any other, players become
immortalized; today we
all know of the great he-
roes of World Cups past,
Pele, Maradona, Zinedine
Zidane, Romario, Franz
Beckenbauer, Paolo Ros-


si, and the list goes on...
However, such a pressur-
ized environment can also
create great villains. For
example, the 1994 pair


ing signs in the growth
of soccer in the US. As a
matter of fact in the early
years of the World Cup the
US soccer program was


SOUTH
AFRICA

of Roberto Baggio and
Andres Escobar comes to
mind. Despite being one
of the best players of their
generations, they became
forever marked as losers
and chokers and one was
eventually killed.
The United States is a
country with a football
obsession. The only dif-
ference is that this football
obsession involves an oval
ball. However, it's not all
doom and gloom for soc-
cer on these shores. There
have been very encourag-


very competitive. In the
first World Cup, the 1930
World Cup in Uruguay, the
US finished a respectable
3rd place, a result which
remains America's best in
a World Cup and by a wide
margin at that. In fact, the
US qualified for every
World Cup from 1930 un-
til 1950. Except for 1938
when the US delegation
w itlhdrli In 1950 the US
played in what may remain
the national team's great-
est game on a pitch to date,
an improbable 1-0 victory
over soccer power and co-
lonial rulers England. This
is now famously known
as the "Miracle on Grass".
However, from such prom-
ising beginnings things
seemed to decline after
1950 as the US did not
qualify for another World
Cup until 1990.
The United States' mod-
em soccer history began
in 1993 as Major League
Soccer (MLS) was found-
ed to help the US' bid to
host 1994 World Cup.
The 1994 World Cup was
a huge success as crowds
packed America's over-
sized venues in what re-


mains the most profitable
of all the World Cups. The
US national team is actu-
ally a great source of pride
for Americans who follow
the World Cup. The US
team receives great sup-
port from its American
supporters but, the ques-
tion remains: Is it because
they love soccer or is just
the "rally 'round the flag"
effect in full-force? By
all accounts the MLS has
been an abject failure and
no matter how many in-
temational stars like Cu-
auhtemoc Blanco, Davis
Beckham, or even Thierry
Henry can get the league
to become relevant. Few
cities have a passion for
soccer, Seattle and Chi-
cago come to mind, but
other than them not many
cities fill up their soccer
stadiums. This is growing
though, America's leader
in sports news ESPN has
purchased exclusive rights
to this year's World Cup
and have been aggres-
sively advertising it for
over 2 years now. Also,
for the first time ever a
major television network,
Fox, broadcast European
soccer's biggest event; on
May 22nd Fox showed
Bayem Munich take on
Inter Milan in the UEFA
Champions League Final.


More evidence to soc-
cer's increased popularity
in States is the surprising
sales figures of soccer's
premier video game fran-
chise FIFA 10, numbers
show that North America
is behind Europe the
#2 market for sales of the
popular video game.
Therefore, the pressure is on
Bob Bradley's boys to take
all this newfound goodwill
towards soccer and turn it
into something tangible,
something that, once and
for all, would allow soccer
to truly take hold in Amer-
ica. They do seem poised
to do just that as they are in
a very manageable group
where they and England
are the heavy favorites to
advance to the knockout
round. However, failure in
South Africa would result
in, as Maxine Nightingale
famously said, "Right Back
Where We Started From".

Don't forget to check
back in our next edi-
tion with the conclusion
to our 3-part segment
"Joga Bonito: The Beau-
tiful Game" in which we
will show where the dif-
ferent ethnic groups will
meet to watch the World
Cup.

tops FAU's showing in

Sun Belt track and field


By Donovan Ortega

The Boca Raton High
School football team took
the field on Monday in
scorching afternoon heat
and began their last week of
spring practice in prepara-
tion for their game against
Oakland Park-North East
on Thursday, May 26th.
Players walked out onto the
radiating field turf carrying
their helmets and shoulder
pads, but were quickly driv-
en into a light jog by a shrill
whistle blown by an assis-
tant coach. While the play-
ers formed a large circle to
stretch, Head Coach Keith
Byars, a former Miami
Dolphin fullback who still
looks the part, watched his
team with a careful eye.
"Spring practice has gone
well," he said, never tak-
ing his eyes off the field,
"It seems like as soon as
it comes it's over, but it's


a good starting point. The
formula for success stays
the same."
The Bobcats went 9-3 in
the 2009 season, capturing
a district title and winning
a playoff game against
Vero Beach in the Class 6A
regional quarterfinal. Their
success was based largely
on the arm of quarterback
Eddie Sullivan who threw
for 2,227 yards and 21
touchdowns. His services,
along with top receiver,
Terrell Williams (677
yards, 8 touchdowns) and
top rusher, Jerome Brad-
ley (509 yards, 7 touch-
downs) will not be avail-
able for the upcoming
season because of gradu-
ation.
"I tell the kids this all
the time. The shape and
color of the Coke can
changes, but the formula
stays the same. It's what
works. Every team starts


over. We're all starting
fresh, but we're not go-
ing to change what we
do. It's going to be the
same product. Good,
clean, hard football," said
Byars, before breaking
off his speech to chide a
young, late player, "What
you waiting on? Get go-
ing!"
On the practice field, junior
and sophomore quarter-
backs Bret Benes and Kev-
in Anderson take snaps next
to each other and throw
corresponding swing routes
to sprinting running backs.
With Eddie Sullivan's de-
parture, both players are
vying to fill the vacancy at
starting quarterback. Up
to this point, Coach Byars
hasn't made a decision.
E \ cl one likes to focus on
the quarterback spot, but I
haven't decided anything.
All the spots are up for
grabs. It's all good healthy

competition. We're a team,
first and foremost, but we
have to compete."
The Bobcats are in full pads
and, after positional drills,
quickly begin a defen-
sive orientated full contact
scrimmage. Wide receiv-
ers and cornerbacks play-
fully jaw at one another as
coaches scream directions
and technique. The defense
is aggressive, blitzing often
and pressuring the young
quarterbacks into errant
throws, but junior halfback
Keith Byars II keeps them
honest by breaking off a
big, bruising run.
"That's it," says his dad,
Head Coach Keith Byars,
"You see how that works
when you're running in
the right direction?"
