his firearm at a teller. He
asked the teller, "Where
are the $100s?" and told
her she had --15 seconds."
He stole some $2,900 and
then left the bank without
injuring anyone.
The second bank robbe-

at the Amtrust Bank at
3600 West Hillsboro Bou-
levard, Deerfield Beach.
According to the criminal
complaint, Price, wearing
a black baseball cap, sun-
glasses, and a bandana cov-
ering his mouth, entered
the bank carrying a black
revolver in his hand. Price

reportedly vaulted the tell-
er counter and demanded
money from multiple tell-
ers at multiple stations,
while brandishing the fi-
rearm. In total, he stole a-
bout $2,051.
As Price was jumping back
over the counter, he shot
a 67-year-old customer
who tried to stop him. Af-
ter shooting the customer
in the neck, Price left the
bank, discharging two
rounds from his revolver
as he fled. The shooting
victim was transported
by Deerfield Beach Fire

Medical Center. He re-

symbol of any holiday: the
The holiday we know as
Rosh Hashanah is called
Yom Teruah, the Day of the
Blast (of the shofar), in the
Torah. The Shofar is a fasci-
nating and powerful instru-
ment. The shofar is usually
a ram's horn which remmds
us of the animal sacrifice
that Abraham made to God
after the Akedah (the bin-
ding of Isaac). The shofar
is not an instrument that can
be tuned and the only way
to make different sounds
are by the pauses of the sho-
far blower. Although seem-
ingly simple, the sound that
the shofar makes can bring
so many thoughts to mind.
However, the most mea-
ningful way to look at the
shofar in my life is as an
alarm clock. Beginning on
Rosh Chodesh Elul (the
first day of the month of
Elul, the month preceding
Rosh Hashanah), we end
our Sha-charit (morning)
service with the blast of the
This shofar blast is a re-
minder that something is
different. It forces each
Jew to ask themselves im-
portant questions that we
might only think of when
we approach a mid-life cri-
sis: Where did the time go?
What did I accomplish?
The blast of the shofar is a
loud alarm clock waking
us up from living a life of
going through the motions.

day we should ask oursel-
ves, how can I make this
day better, more purposeful
and holy, than yesterday?
Unfortunately we usually
press the snooze button and
continue on as usual.
But on Yom Teruah, the Day
of the Awakening Blast,
there is no snooze button:
we finally have the oppor-
tunity to wake up and start
our hwes anew. The blast
of the shofar wakes us up
constantly throughout our
service, remmdmg us that
the task of re-inventing our-
selves is in our hands and
the time to begin is now.
As you wake up from your
slumber, listening to the
blast of the shofar as well as
Our rich liturgy and words
of Torah, I would like for
each one of you to ask
yourselves: how will this
year be different than last
year? How will I re-invent
myself this year? How can

One thmg that I greatly ap-

is how we combat this fee-

Img. We do this by mar-

kmg special times such as
Shabbat once a week and
various holidays. Most of
our holidays commemorate
"historical" events. When
we recite our Friday night
kiddush, (the blessing over
the wine), we remember that
God rested on the seventh day
of creation, and on many of
our holidays such as Sukkot
and Passover, we recount
the Exodus of Bnai Israel
from Egypt.
However, the Yamim No-
raim, the Days of Awe, or
as we commonly refer to
them, the High Holidays,
are a little different. It is
true that Rosh Hashanah
was designated by our Rab-

Dear Mr. Heizer,

For many years we have been hoping that a publication
such as yours would come onboard in Boca Raton that
would reflect what is happening in Boca. A newspaper
which reports on Municipal News, Community News and
the special features such as Life and Arts and Business
News. Your columnists interpret the news in a non-biased
and most professional manner In addition, there are so
many features, too many to list which make your publica-
tion a must-read. Reading the Tribune is like a breath of
fresh air

Hope you like them.

You'd think people on a
cruise ship would not be in
a hurry, particularly on days
when the vessel is at sea.
Were people so much in

need of food, sun or a swim

arrive more quickly?
Imust admit, I do the same
thing. Maybe it's that hint

pushed the button. Maybe
I should push it again,
I love kids, too. They don't
know the up button from
the down button. So they
just hit whichever one they
can reach.
I heard some passengers
suggest that ships should be
equipped with express el-
evators and local elevators.
Maybe someone put it on
their cruise evaluation card
when they disembarked.
Anyway, if you're planning
to take a cruise, remember
one thing. Ships have stair-
ways, too.

many, in adult life, still in-
sist on this infantile pers-
pective which only leads
them into trouble, over and
over again. As American
philosopher, Peter Kreeft,
put it: "We need a Heaven-
sent ethics for a Hell-bent
No one can justify putting
one's self above the laws
of man, much less in dis-
regarding higher precepts
without serious outcomes.
You cannot take well-esta-
blished laws into your own
hands and adapt them to
your wishes and whims!
Some people, who consider
themselves so clever, may
get away with some illegi-
timate actions for a while.
But this posture won't last
long! A "con artist" will be
caught, convicted, and ul-
timately face very unpleas-
ant consequences for those
unmeasured, unthought, foo-
lish deeds! This may not
occur right away, but you
may count on this reality
catching up with you on

payday! If you are not suc-
ceeding in what matters
most, chances are you are
failing there!
Although so much of this
world continually rushes
upon you, never yield nor
accommodate to them but,
rather, reprove those al-
lurements if and when in-
imical to virtue. Life will
always be complicated. Yet,
it may be somewhat sim-
plified by your healthy
choices and positive ac-
tions, and by the proper
direction you choose to
The place where you are
now is usually indicative of
whereto you are moving, of
the direction you are going.
And C.S. Lewis adds that
"progress means not just
changing, but changing for
the better." Then, once you
found something better, re-
member that the best should
still remain your ultimate
goal! Don't ignore any of
your conflicts in life; just
utilize the resources ever
available for your triumph
and genuine satisfaction!

Summer always seems to
go by so quickly.
We hope you've all had
a great time. We want to
welcome back all our Boca
travelers and, soon, we'll
again be greeting the snow-
birds as they flee the cold
winter weather to spend a
few months in Florida.
It's been a busy summer for
those of us at the Boca Ra-
ton Tribune. We've spent
a lot of time working on
ways to improve the paper
to better serve the commu-
nity. Some of these chang-
es have already become
evident. Others are coming
to light in this edition and
more will arrive in the fu-
You've probably noticed
that the size of the paper
has been adjusted starting
with this edition. Now, the
Boca Raton Tribune is ex-
actly tabloid size. This is
a more convenient format
for our readers. And it
also helps to get the paper
printed in a faster and more
efficient way.
We've added new features
and new faces many of
them familiar to the Boca
Raton scene. Rebecca
Coleman, well known in
society circles and owner
of her own public relations
company, is joining Tri-
bune contributors. Her col-
umn, "Rebecca Reports,"
debuts in today's edition
as she looks at the social
scene, which should be
heating up as "season" gets

In addition, Skip Sheffield
is devoting much of his
time to his entertainment
writing, including reviews
of the local theater and
movie scene and providing
other articles about life and
In fact, the Boca Raton Tri-
bune is devoting more time
and space to the area's arts
scene, reaching out to Del-
ray, to Broward County and
central Palm Beach County
to let you know when and
where you can find the best
shows and films.
One of the people new to
our staff is Linda Gove.
She will start writing her
own society column "Lin-
da On The Scene" where
she will have her own
unique ways of tackling the
society scene here in Boca.
You might have seen her
column up online, but now
you have the chance to see
it not only online but also
in print.
Also, Kay Renz, another
PR lady who is known for
her celebrity interviews
and fashion articles, will be
contributing a style column
to the Tribune start with
the next edition.
Gerry Sherman's "What
Business Are You In?" col-
umn has become a regular
feature, and is being re-
ceived well in the commu-
nity. Sherman has a way
of putting his business acu-
men into a form that every-
one can understand.
The Tribune is also win-
ning praise for its colorfill

and informative front and
back pages. Readers said
they're also pleased with
the "Tropical Updates" that
appear in each print edi-
tion, providing them with
hurricane preparation tips
as we reach the height of
that season.
Readers may also have no-
ticed the "Tribune Money"
that is being printed in each
edition. Tribune Dollars
are spread throughout the
paper for you to cut out
and collect. You can use
them for special prizes that
will be available in the fu-
ture. Readers can use only
one Tribune Dollar per is-
sue, but you can cut them
out and give them to your
friends so they can also get
special deals. So what are
you waiting for? Start cut-
Actually, you should en-
courage your friends to
get the paper when each
edition hits the streets.
The Tribune has plenty of
local articles about mu-
nicipal news, community
goings-on, sports, arts and
life, along with puzzles and

first address to the Florida
Atlantic University com-
munity, newly appointed
FAU President Dr. Mary
Jane Saunders stressed the
need to -engage students,
preserve the vision and
pursue new goals."
I chose that title [for her
speech] very deliberately
because, taken together,
these three concepts define
the direction we'll be ta-
kmg in the years ahead.
We'll continue to engage
students in every possible
way, from helpmg them
achieve academic success
to involving them in all
aspects of the life of the
university," she said in her
first State ofthe University
address delivered Se t. 1
We'll preserve the care-
fully nurtured vision of
this university as a center
of distinguished scholar-
ship, research and cre-
ative activity, a well as a
meaningful service to the
greater commumty, Dr.
Saunders added.
'And we'll work together
in the pursuit of important
new goals, such as expand-
ing e-leaming capabilities
and becoming a statewide
leader in the development
and dehvery of STEM cur-
ricula science, technolo-
gy, engineering and math.
Dr. Saunders addressed an
audience at the university's

at Cleveland State Umver-

last spring, succeeding for-
mer President Frank Bro-

chancellor of the state uni-
versity system.
She praised a number of
staff members by name
as well as instructors as a
whole, saying: The fac-
ulty and the hard-workmg
staff who support them
are the people who bring a
university to life."

seat without an election
because she was the only
one running.
The battle for govemor has
been pared to two front
runners and a bevy of wan-
nabes. In an upset, so-
called "outsider" candidate
Rick Scott defeated Bill
McCollum for the GOP
nod by a narrow margin of
46 percent to 43 percent.
The state's Chief Financial

Officer, Alex Sink, walked
away with a win in the
Democratic primary, tak-
ing 76 percent of that vote.
The Scott victory one
that followed a nasty cam-
paign against McCollum
- apparently surprised Re-
publicans in Palm Beach
County. When Scott failed
to show up at a Boca Ra-
ton Republican Club meet-
ing just five days before
the primary and sent his
mother to speak on his
behalf the local GOP fo-
cused its support on Mc-
Collum. What was to be a
debate that night between
the two Republican front-
runners tumed into a one-
man show for McCollum.
But millionaire Scott, who
reportedly spent $50 mil-
lion on his campaign, end-
ed up winning the right to
take on Sink in November.
In other results from the
primary, Marco Rubio got
a massive mandate from
Republicans as he won the
GOP candidacy for U.S.
Senator by a margin of
84 percent over two intra-
party challengers. Among
Democrats, Kendrick
Meek got 57 percent of the
vote in the primary to oust

millionaire Jeff Greene
from the running.
Rubio and Meek will meet
again in November, but
Gov. Charlie Crist will
also be in that mix. Crist,

Both Klein and West
sailed to easy victories in
their primaries. West took
76 percent of the GOP vote
and Klein, 84 percent of
the Democratic balloting,
over little-known foes.

If you want a bit of Shangri-
la you might want to check
out the other side of the map
- literally. That's what I did.
And why not, August in
South Florida has its flaws
- heat, humidity and tropical
The West Coast Southern
California has dry pic-
turesque days and enough
health food restaurants and
Om signs to make anyone
happy. But it was at the
legendary Golden Door
Spa that I found someone
who teaches a course called
"How to be Happy."
I know it sounds a bit far
fetched a course on how
to be happy? That's what
I thought until I met for-
mer Golden Door Director
Annharriet Buck. This life
coach and happy guru has
some rules of thumb for the
pleasure centers in our brain,
"Life has ebbs and flows,"
she said. "But one reason
that people are unhappy is
that they put an over empha-
sis on what is going wrong
and an under emphasis on
what is going right." Hmmm
I thought, maybe she's right.
Another way to keep up the
happy quotient in your life
is to allow yourself to savor
the sensory core of your be-
ing. That means watching a
sunset, going to the movies,
taking a hot shower or doing
a number of pleasant things.
But, as we all know, these

little bits of self-induced
heaven don't last all that
long, they disappear.
So, Buck gave us a list of
ways to amplify our joyful-
ness. Number one, she said,
is to avoid habituation. Don't
do the same thing too often.
"If someone brought you
flowers every day it would
not mean as much to you as
it would if you got them once
in a while," Buck said. She
told us to savor the pleasure
and luxuriate in our senses.
"Practice savoring skills by
going out into nature and
watclung a scene while no-
ticing the impact it has on
your senses," she said.
So we did that. We sat
among the lush surroundings
of the Golden Door Spa and
watched its Zen-like pres-
ence unfold in our psyches
(this was an easy task in
this heavenly place). We
savored the silence and the
sanctity and took notes on
its impact on our core being.
"In our busy lives we miss
so much that could be food
for the soul. When you are
stuck in traffic, find some-
thing outside that is pleas-
ing and make a shift in your
thoughts. That choice can
make the difference in being
Another way we can hold
onto our happy genetics, she
said, is to think about the past
with a positive spin. "Most
of us hold onto what went

wrong in our childhoods, but
we can learn to skip that and
recall wonderful experiences
from that time. Don'tneglect
the good stuff from the past,"
she said.
Another secret to a happy
existence is to remember
to be grateful for what you
have (an Oprah favorite). We
were told to write down three
things that made us happy
each day. Not only do happy
thoughts make us happy she
said, but being happy is a
big immune booster (non-fat
food for the soul).
That is why we were told to
scan the day and remember
what made us happy, but we
were told to write it down. "It
does not work if you don't
write it down," Buck said.
greatest differences between
an optimist and a pessimist.
"An optimist sees anything
bad as temporary and ev-
erything good that happens
as permanent. You have to
monitor your inner dialogue.
Most of it is false anyway."
Aha, Ithought. That is one of
the sure ways to remain hap-
py even in the face of disas-
ter. If we see everything as
temporary that goes wrong
and everything permanent
that goes right then we are
surely on the road to hap-
piness even if that road is
cluttered with traffic.

Celebrities and celebrations still finding

their place in Boca

| ENTERTAINMENT continued from page 13

Hello everyone, it's good
to be back! I'm looking
forward to meeting old
friends and making new
ones as I report on the
social scene for the Boca
Raton Tribune.
The philanthropy land-
scape has changed some-
what since I last reported
on it, but I'm pleased to
see many long-running e-
vents are still with us.
For example, Soroptimists
of Boca will be presenting
their 37th annual "Women
of Distinction" Awards
on October 13. Some of
the names have changed,
too, over the last couple
of years Boca Raton Re-
gional Hospital and Palm
Beach State College.
As we gear up for "sea-
son," the first wave of
celebrity visitors hit town
last week. "Real House-
wives of New York" star
Jill Zarin, her sister Lisa
Wexler, an award-win-
ning radio show host and
their mother, Woodfield
resident Gloria Kamen,
took Borders Books by
storm. More than 150 fans
crowded into the book-
store for their Saturday af-

Her advice to me, "If you
know you're going to
be photographed, photo-
graph yourself first before
you leave for the event."
I wonder who she's been
speaking to.
The next celebrity author
to come to town will be
"The Nanny" Fran Dre-
scher. Fran is a cancer sur-
vivor and her book "Can-
cer Schmancer" was a
New York Times best sell-
er. She'll talk about her
experiences as the key-
note speaker for the Boca
Raton Regional Hospital
Foundation's 7th annual
GO Pink Luncheon, Octo-
ber 28.
On September 24 we'll be
celebrating the 98th birth-
day of one of Boca's most
treasured home town ce-
lebrities, Henrietta, Count-
ess de Hoemle. Many of
you may remember her
fabulous 95th birthday
party at Boca West. This
year, the celebration will
take place during the
March of Dimes Signa-
ture Chefs & Wine Ex-
travaganza at the Boca
Raton Resort & Club. The
Countess will be honored

for her outstanding contri-
bution to the community.
The fun kicks off with
a VIP "Meet the Chefs"
Reception. With 31 res-
taurants taking part this
year we'll need to pace
ourselves or at least not
eat for 48 hours before
the event. Don't forget to
leave room for the birth-
day cake!

And that is life in Boca...

An "extra man" is another
term for a professional es-
cort or walker. A retired
teacher with thwarted liter-
ary aspirations of his own,
Henry makes a precarious
living off rich women who
need a man on their arm at
social functions.
The role is perfect for Key-
in Kline, who is masterful
as a rueful, yet dignified
Chaplinesque character.
Louis and Henry are an odd
but oddly-suited couple.
Both men are lonely and
both are flawed. Louis is a
compulsive cross-dresser;
a quirk that doesn't bother
the actor-ly Henry at all.
Henry feels like a failure,
and having a young friend
and confidant is rejuvenat-
ing for him.
This film is dominated
by Kevin Kline, but there
is a small but interest-
ing supporting role by
Katie Holmes as a green-
obsessed co-worker and
potential love interest for
Louis, and John C. Reilly

as a flakey neighbor in
Henry's neighborhood.
Based on a novel by Jona-
than Ames, "Extra Man" is

soup with scallions and
a chicken pate ball soup
with shiitake mushrooms.
Both had a light, delicate
broth and each taste quite
distinctive. Three other hot
soups are also available.
Ten appetizers are listed
- we had a sweet, grilled
scallop with a bit of a bite
from special homegrown
Vietnamese basil. Then ap-
peared a grilled shrimp roll
with onion, cilantro, basil
and a fine peanut sauce.
Next was a roll containing
mushroom, onion, bean
sprouts and parsley. Both
these rolls had wonderful
flavors. Now a big surprise
- superior, crispy ringlets
of calamari with red pep-
pers, celery and a great
tamarind sauce. Truly, we
have not had better any-
where a must trd
The entrees, twenty six in

number, included a spicy
curried shrimp marinated
with coriander pesto and

rooms and snow peas lea-
ving a tingle on the palate.

fies the need for a little

was just a matter of fmite do's

came in only two colors: black
and white, right or wrong, we
might be bold enough to say
we can handle it. The problem
is that the majority of choices
come in ninetynine shades of
Often situations are not com-
pletely right or completely
wrong and telling where
"right" ends and "wrong" be-
gins is difficult. To add to the
mix, there appears to be vary-
ing opinions, even among
discerning people, as to the
rightness or wrongness of so-
mething. Some things are right
to point; wrong beyond that
point. Some things are right
in themselves and wrong in
association. Do we just give
up and go with the crowd? Is
there really no right answer?
Where do we tum for a solu-
tion? Some tum to friends for
advise; others religion, science

Anybody can quote the Bi-ble.
Anybody can say the Bible
means what they want it to
mean. Remember that Scrip-
ture must be understood as
those who originally heard it
understood it. It must be inter-
preted properly like any other
literary document and it must
be applied correctly. We meet

people everyday who misin-

than any book in human his-

and timeless book. The fun-
damental dynamics of how to
make moral choices are the
same today as they were 4,000
years ago. This does not mean

(His moral will) should be

instruction as to what we
should or shouldn't do.

Like most gadget lovers, I ha-
ve acquired a smartphone and
have begun the addictive pro-
cess of downloading "apps."
One of the applications I
loaded was a "GPS,"(global
position system), a point

help prevent me from getting
lost. What I have discovered
is that downloading something
is an entirely different issue
than knowing how to use it.
If I don't know how to use it
correctly; or I put in the wrong
coordinates; or the default set-

I didn't know it), I end up frus-

all, LOST.
A map in your glove box or

Suspension sutures can give

sagging face a liff

threads, a mate I that has
been used inside the hu-
man body as a suture ma-
terial for decades, and are
designed with tiny barbs
that attach to the subder-
mal tissue, lifting, suspen-
ding and fixating.
Unlike conventional sutu-
res, which are smooth,
suspension sutures have
tiny barbs or cogs that are
spaced evenly apart. Once
inserted under the skin,
they are fixated in an um-
brella-like fashion and
with tension, which creates
suspension that gently lifts
sagging tissues of the brow
and face.
The surrounding tissues
act to hold the threads in
place without the need for
visible scars. For the mid-
face procedure, the sur-
geon makes a tiny incision

Dr Daniel Man is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has dedicated his life 's work
to helping people look younger and improve their cq>pearance through cosmetic surgery.
He is a noted author; artist, inventor and echicator Dr Man has been featured on major
television networks, as well as national and local magazines and newspapers for his
work as both a plastic surgeon and an artist.

Dear Dr Man,
You performed no friend's
facelift and she looks
reat. She mentioned that
you used suspension su-
traes as a part of her sur-
gery. How do they work?
I'm :7, sk is about getting
work done on my fZice as
well. How do I know if
these suttaes can be used
on me?

I'm so glad to hear that
your friend is happy with
her results. Suture suspen-
sion is a minimally inva-
sive method where the soft
tissue ofyour face is tight-
ened and elevated using
the properties of the suture
to enhance and connect the
skin. These suture threads
are placed underneath the
skin in various parts of the
face such as the mid face,
lower face, neck and some-
times forehead, depending
on the work that needs to
be done. Suspension sutu-
res are used for reposition-
ing sagging cheeks, lifting
sagging eyebrows and ad-
justing asymmetric brows
and face.
Suspension sutures are
made from polypropylene

close to the ear, and the
threads are advanced along
the previously marked
contours toward the chin
and jaw line. This creates a
firm hold on the underlying
tissues without causing ad-
ditional trauma. The barbs
do the work of holding, by
being fixated to tissue as
they are softly contoured
into place. Once in posi-
tion, your body generates
new collagen bundles that
surround each thread to
maintain the lifting effect.
The exact placement of the
threads will vary from pa-
tient to patient.
Procedures using suspen-
sion sutures are generally
quick. The length of time
will depend on the number
of threads used. A typical
procedure usually takes
about 60 minutes to per-
form. In most cases, there is
minimal discomfort, bruis-
ing and swelling. Ice com-
presses are recommended
for the first 24-48 hours.
Patients can usually return
to work or normal activities
in a few days to one week.
Usually only one procedure
is needed to achieve the de-
sired lifting effect.

When I asked a prospec-
tive client what business
she was in, she complained
that some days she doesn't
know herself. She said her
clients are so fickle that she
is not sure what they want
anymore. So we decided to
do a focus group to find out
what they want and deter-
mine if we can satisfy their
wants and needs.
We discovered that she was
not catering to her present
market and did not see what
was actually happening.
There was a market shift to
a younger, more price-con-
scious and value-oriented

What is a focus group? It
is a research tool that gives
the company the ability to

Look at it as another means

There are various kinds of
focus groups, depending u-
pon on the size of the busi-
ness, the size of the geogra-
phical area conceded with
and the cost allocated to it.
Focus groups are also used
in marketing research stud-
ies, in the social sciences,
political campaigns and even
by the federal government.
For the purpose of the ave-
rage local business, the
group should consist of
a representative group of
your company's target mar-
ket u-sually, 6-12 people,
who are requested to par-
ticipate in your focus group
and answer questions posed
by the moderator. The ques-
tions asked relate to how
they feel about your current
ads or planned ads, services
you provide, your product,
future products and their
perception of your brand.
There is usually some form
of compensation for the par-
ticipants, money, gifts, re-
freshments and sometimes
just recog-nition in the form
of a thank-you letter.
The information you get
can be invaluable in gui-
dmg you to make correc-
tions or additions to your
company's plans or format.
It provides you an opportu-
nity to glean opinions, per-
ceptions and beliefs about
your product. The company
is wise to conduct a focus

group prior to adding a
new product or service or
planning any large event,
advertising or public rela-
tions campaign to ensure
that they will resonate with
the target audience. All of
this can be accomplished by
a skilled moderator's ques-
tions and an equally skillful
analysis of the answers.
In my experience conduc-
ting focus groups, Ifind that
a successful focus group
consists of the following
four components:
* An audience that is care-
fully selected to truly repre-
sent a cross-section of your
* The skills of the inde-
pendent moderator who
is running the meeting, in
stimulating audience par-
* The suitability of the ques-
tions asked.
* The objective analysis of
the information obtained.
* So, as we see, organizing
a focus group is not a mean-
ingless activity, it unveils
vital information a business
needs in order to serve its
public it's not hocus po-
cus...it's an actual focus.

Heats up
er hand, hasn't been struck
by a major hurricane since
Bob, in 1991. Bob was also
a category three with winds
of up to 100 miles per hour.
Earl easily dwarfs both
those storms.
In Virginia, Gov. Bob Mc-
Donnell sent 200 Nation
Guard troops to Chesapeake
Bay as precautionary mea-
sure. The area wasn't ex-
pected to get hit very hard,
but in 2003, a seemingly
innocuous storm named
Isabelle caused 1.6 billion
dollars worth of damage
and killed 33 people.
"I'd rather be safe and get
our troops and state police
in place by Thursday night,"
the govemor said.
Other Tropical Storms
Tropical Storm Gaston
formed in the Atlantic on
Wednesday to make it the
fourth named storm in
eleven days. It is expected
to travel towards the Lee
Ward Islands. Also, Tropi-
cal Storm Fiona maintained
winds of 60 miles per hour
and is projected to travel
over Bermuda in the next
few days .

By Donovan Ortega

The 2010 hurricane season
had been largely unevent-
ful until Hurricane Earl for-
med in the South Atlantic
Ocean. On Thursday, Tropi-
cal Storm Earl continued its
northward slide, barreling
towards the edges of eas-
tem sea board, prompting
government officials to put
their preparedness plans
into action. The govemors
of North Carolina, Virginia
and Maryland declared sta-
tes of emergency. Earl is
a powerfill, category four
storm with winds of up to
135 miles per hour. It is dif-
ficult to predict where the
storm will hit, if at all. It
is expected to reach North
Carolina's coast by Thurs-
day night, and then shift its
course north, never making
direct landfall. However,
experts have speculated that
there's a possibility that
Earl could spin closer to the
North Carolina coast and its
whirl northward could take
it directly over New York's
Long Island, the Boston

metropolitan area, and Cape
Cod. The best case scenario
is that it dissipates out at sea.
"Everyone is poised and
ready to pull the trigger if
Earl tums west," said Peter
Judge, a spokesman for the
Massachusetts Emergency
Management Agency," but
our hope is that this thing
goes out to sea and we're all
golfing this weekend,"
The only mandatory evacu-
ations were for the Hatteras
Islands of North Carolina.
There were 80 national
guardsmen sent to oversee
evacuations. President Bar-

Is there really such a thing
as --Beauty Sleep?" Belie-
ve me, there is. Here's why
and how to get it.
Stories about models -play-
ing 'til-the-wee-hours-of-
the-morning" life style (that
some film makers portray)
is not true. It might be true
of -would-be" models, but
it would put serious ones
out of business within a
Most models I worked with
in New York felt they must
have 7 to 8 hours sleep to
look their best and to stay
at the top of their careers.
Friday and Saturday nights
might have been -party
nights" but Sunday night...
back to the Beauty Sleep
for Monday morning as-
It is believed by many, in-
cluding me, that sleep gets
rid of certain chemicals
that build up in our bodies
every day. They have also
Oleda Baker at 75. CEO
www.oleda.com identified
several molecules involved
in cell-to-cell unretouched
photo communication wi-
thin the brain as being im-
portant for sleep...and es-
pecially for our long-range
health and beauty.
Poor sleeping habits can
not only rob vou of beauty
and health but can cause
some day to day problems,
such as general tiredness,
feeling irritable, lack of
energy poor concentration

and memor\ more mishaps
and illnesses.
So how well do you
sleep..... if not well here's
how to get a better qual-
ity (soundness) out of your
1. Make sure you are tak-
ing enough Vitamin B-
Complex. If you're anxious
or high strung B-Complex
can also help soothe your
nerves, helps calm you and
generally paves the way for
a better nights sleep. It's
difficult to get enough B-
Complex in the food we
eat, especially as we get a
few years on us, and, since
it is a water soluble vita-
min, you cannot overdose.
(Take B-Complex not just
812, you need all the B's
together to make them

2. Do not eat late at night..
or at least 3 or 4 hours be-
fore retiring.

3. Do not do heavy exercise
before going to bed. Keep
your body calm.

4. Take a short walk after
dinner...a 10 20 minute
slow walk is good.

5. No caffeine after 3 or 4
PM.... watch out for cof-
fee, chocolate or sodas.
6. Try not to take -sleeping
pill" prescriptions. That is
forced sleep and may have
side effects over a period of

time. If necessary try taking
a natural nutritional formu-
la with Kava Kava, Mela-
tonin, Chamomile, Passion
Flower and Hops. This
helps you fall asleep and
wake up more naturally.

7. Find out if your mattress
is the right one for you. It
may be more important
than you think.

8. Don't forget that a warm
cup ofmilkhelps get you to
sleep, too.

9. Make sure lights are
blocked in the bedroom

10. Wear earplugs to keep
out noise

11. Make sure the tempera-
ture of the bedroom is com-

12. Take a warm bath be-
fore going to bed. Making
this part of a nightly ritual
can help trigger sleep and
help you to relax.

13. If you are anxious about
-things to do tomorrow" -
make a list and keep it by
your bedside.
If you find you still can't
sleep consult your physi-
cian...You must have your
proper rest!

Sleep well.
Until next time,
Love, Oleda

BOCA RATON These are "before" and "after" pictures of Danny, a golden retriever
that was rescued by the Tri County Humane Society in Boca Raton.
Tri County Founder and CEO Jeannette Christos said his new adopted owner stopped
by recently "to show us how beautiful he is. They said, "'He is an amazing dog."'
"That is what rescue is all about at Tri County," Christos said. "When we got him, we
didn't think he would survive, but because of weeks of medical care, love and attention
he thrived and became a beautiful puppy."

Aurty Denson takes over Pope John

Paul II football
By Donovan Ortega

Pope John Paul II foot-
ball got a shot in the arm
during the summer and
his name is Autry Denson.
Notre Dame's all time lead-
ing rusher and former Mi-
ami Dolphin running back
was named the school's
head football coach in
April and Denson didn't
waste time applying his
knowledge and work ethic
onto a team that went. 500

After a disappointing loss
in the playoffs last year, the ,
Boca Raton high school -' 7. -
football team begins their
2010 campaign against fierce
cross-town rival West Boca.
The Bobcats defeated the
Bulls 21-7 last year and will
try and start the season on
a high note on Friday. With
standout quarterback Eddie
Sullivan graduating, Head
Coach Keith Byars has in-
serted young, sophomore sig-
nal caller, Kevin Anderson
into the position. Anderson
will be making his first regu-
lar season start at the varsity
level and Byars, while ha-
ving full confidence in his
ability, isn't ready to let the
gunslinger loose.
" He's going to do fine," said
Byars. "He just needs to let
the game come to him and ev-
erything else will work out. With young players you got to let them crawl before they
can walk and come Friday night we're going to give him a little something to chew on."
Anderson, on the other hand, is ready to come out firing.
"I'm feeling pretty confident. We've been studying a lot of film as a team and we're go-
ing to come out and get a victory. We're going to air it out and we're going to pound it.
I don't really get nervous," said Anderson, the former Boca Jets standout.
The fact that this is possibly the most emotionally charged game of the season due to
the schools proximity and that it's the first test of the season, is not lost on Head Coach
"All the kids know each other. They go to the same restaurants and talk to the same
girls," said Byars while chuckling to
himself. "This is for bragging rights and
the young men recognize that. Bragging
rights for the rest of the year."
Keith Byars Jr., the coach's son and pro-
jected starting half back was out of prac-
tice with an undisclosed injury on Mon-
day. It is unclear if he will play on Friday.

High School on September 3rd at 7:00.

in the shadow of the grand-
stand, the eagles practiced
form tackling. What the
team lacks in numbers it
makes up for with intensity.
The thunderous smack of
shoulder pads on tackling
dummies followed by ex-
cited cheers of enthusiasm
rang through the late after-
noon heat. Denson and his
team of assistants hounded
the players to pick up the
pace and the team respond-
ed with more energy. The
looked ready to play.
"The only reason why
you line up is to win foot-
ball games and we plan
on playing late into De-
cember. With that said I
also came here to change
young men's lives. Our
mission statement is minis-
try through athletics. We're
here to make these kids
tougher through love and
hopefully that will translate
into wins."

nest coaching will help.
He also places a lot of re-
sponsibility on two return-
ing seniors, Gore Simervil
(RB) and Freddie Mackey
"Those two are the heart
and soul of this team. They
way they go is the way our
season will go. We're ex-
pecting them to do some
really big things. The rest
of the guys look up to
them and with our numbers
we're going to need people
to play both offense and de-
fense," said Denson.
Out on the practice field,

last year.
"When you're 5-5 you've
got to improve on every-
thing. I didn't look at what
they did last year because
I really don't care," said
Denson. "I knew that we
had to come in here and
coach the kids up and that's
what I've done."
One of the disadvantages
that Pope John Paul II
has is that it doesn't have
the number of players of
Other football programs. It

The Good Old Days in

in the 300's and 400's are
wearing their HEAT jerseys,
face painted, jumping up and
down... for what? They will
never be recognized m the
jumbotron, but they should!
They are the real fans! They
their team for the good, the
bad, and the ugly.
Yes, there are some excep-
tions to this rule. I have a
friend who has 100 level sea-
son ticket and he's a die hard
fan. I applaud him for this act
of courage and sitting in the
mist of all the business peo-
ple and ignorant band wag-
oners. But usually the people
who sit in the 100's don't
really care about the game;
they care more about their
status symbol. They come to
the game with mim-skirts, or
num-dresses, or a dress shirt
with a tie... It's a basketball
game for crying out loud, not
Continued on page 31

Two years ago, you were
able to walk up to the Ameri-
can Airlines Arena for a
regular season Miami HEAT
game and find decent prices
for tickets for that game. You
could probably sit a few rows
behind the HEAT bench for
about $100, and the 400 level
(the Nosebleeds) were going
for $10. The HEAT were so
desperate to sell tickets that
they came up with the idea
to sell season tickets for $10
a game so that was $410 for
the entire season.
But, the good old days are
gone. Since the addition of
LeBron James and Chris

Bosh, Miami has seen a
boost in ticket sales that are
downright disgusting. The
minute LeBron announced
his decision, season tickets
were sold out and the hunt
for one mere ticket began.
A Fort Lauderdale ticket
broker tells that some court-
side seats for the Heat's Oct.
29 home-opener against the
Orlando Magic are selling
for $7,500-a-piece. "And if
the Heat win their first 10-12
games, it's going to go past
$10,000," said Todd Chitoff
of ticketplayground.com
This ticket boom isn't only
happening in Miami but e-

everywhere the Three Kings
are headed. In Boston, Nose-
bleed ducats with face val-
ues around 50 bucks are go-
ing for an average of about
$450, where the retooled
Heat opens the season Oct.
26. According to the website
SeatGeek.com, which sur-
veys ticket resale throughout
the country, the two games
are expected to be the two
most expensive home open-
ers of any NBA team.
Now, are you looking to be
at the HEAT/Cavaliers game
on December 2nd? Well,
don't hold your breath; tick-
ets are going for the mini-

mum of $356... that's a lot
of money... but not even
close to this next ridiculous
price. Are you hoping Santa
brings you 2 tickets for the
Los Angeles/Miami game at
the Staples Center on Christ-
mas day? Well, the old guy
won't be able to pay the
$900 price tag!
This is nonsense, and down-
right wrong. When will the
regular average fan be able
to watch their beloved Mi-

ami HEAT? Well the simple
answer to that is never
It's always been like that too,
I remember having a theory
two years ago and proving
it right last season. Here's
the theory, the real die-hard
true Miami HEAT fans are
always sitting in the 300's
and 400's where it's cheap.
The rich bandwagoners that
could care less about the
sport and let alone the tearn
sit in the 100's. The people

a business meeting!
Here's my proposal to the Miami HEAT organization when it comes to ticket sales... Have a
simple quiz. You know, basic Miami HEAT questions that all true Miami HEAT fan should
know, like, Who's the all-time leading scorer, who's the franchise leader in assists, when was
the team's inaugural season, who were the starting five of the first ever HEAT game in the
inaugural season... you know, things like that.. What players have their jerseys retired by the
team... simple questions. That would not only help the real fans, but it would also help weed
out the fake fans. But hey, that's just what I think... what do you guys think? I suppose Wade
was nght when he said that every arena they come to would sell out.
