We've been looking at some of the great rock and
roll acts of the 1950s. One of the greatest was Chuck
Berry, who brought a heavy dose of country to R&B.
In 1959, though, his career stalled when he was ar-
rested under the Mann Act for transporting an under-
age prostitute across state lines to work as a hat-check
girl in his St. Louis nightclub. The Mann Act was often
used to bring down troublesome celebrities, especially
if they were black.

Lynn freezes student fees, offers used

textbooks and modest tuition hike to

help students save money

midst of economically chal-
lenged times, colleges and
universities around the na-
tion are working to cut costs
for students.
Lynn University has imple-
mented several new tactics
for the 2010-11 academic
year to keep costs down.
These efforts include:
*a modest tuition increase
of 2.8 percent for all un-
dergraduate day students,
which was approved by
the Board of Trustees in
December 2009 and is
substantially below the na-
tional average;
* a freeze on student fee
increases, as well as room
and board rates;
* an expanded selection
of used textbooks in the
Of the efforts to save stu-
dents money, making used
telxbooks available pro-
vides immediate, substan-
tial savings, said school
"The savings are as much
as 50 percent used versus
new," said Matthew Cha-
loux, director of Auxilia-
ry Services at Lynn. "Our
standard for buying used
books is like new, slightly
used and worn. Each cost
is less the more worn the
book is."
According to Gregg Cox,
dean of Lynn's College of
Liberal Education and ac-
ting dean of Lynn's Ross
College of Education, in
years past the Southern
Association of Colleges

and Schools (SACS) pro-
hibited professors from using
older versions of textbooks.
"But that hasn't been a
SACS standard for many
years," said Cox who has
been at Lynn since 1981.
"SACS is on board with
the federal government to
save students money, and
in my experience teaching
calculus, texbooks don't
change drastically from
year to year. You'll see one
or two new examples and
problems, but that's it."
To be sure the textbooks
are up-to-date, Lynn relies
on the judgment of faculty
and college deans. "We
also encourage faculty to
use primary source mate-
rial whenever possible,"
said Cox. "In some acade-
mic areas, textbooks may

become outdated rather
quickly, but in other areas
a single text can serve well
for a number of years."
Although Lynn is now of-
fering used books, new
books will still be availa-
ble to students in several
courses. According to Cha-
loux, "The only stipulation
we have for selling used
books is that there have to
be enough older versions
of the book in stock avai-
lable for the entire class."
In addition to helping stu-
dents with the cost of books,
Lynn also distributes a ge-
nerous amount of funding
through grants. In fact, the
class of 2010 received an a-
verage of $50,314 for their
cumulative four years at

Boca Raton police arrest suspect for

allegedly stealing assault rifles

M- -

police have arrested a sus-
pect in connection with the
theft of assault rifles from
a Boca home.
Public Information Man-
ager Mark Economou said
Bennet Kulback, 28, of
234 NW Wavecrest Court,
Boynton Beach, was ar-
rested and charged with

one count of armed bur-
glary and four counts of
grand theft of a firearm.
The burglary victim called
Boca Raton police Aug. 25
to report four firearms, in-
cluding two assault rifles,
missing when he returned
home from vacation.
Detectives matched serial
numbers provided by the
victim to pawn shop trans-
actions in the tri-county
area. Economou said they
located three of the stolen
weapons at a pawn shop
in Broward County, and
upon review of the pawn
receipt, identified Bennet
Kulback as the individual
who pawned the weapons.
When confronted by detec-
tives at his residence, Kul-

back allegedly confessed
to stealing the weapons,
but stated he couldn't re-
member where he sold the
fourth weapon, a Glock
handgun. The victim told
detectives that he met Ben-
net once, but didn't know
his last name.
Economou said Kulback
said he was aware that the
victim was away on va-
cation, so he went to the
house alone, parked and
walked up to the home.
According to the police re-
port, he said the door was
unlocked, so he entered
and stole the weapons, and
later sold them for cash to
buy drugs. U

Boca Raton police investigate robbery

and carjacking

tives from the Boca Raton
Police Services Department
are investigating a recent
robbery and carjacking.
Public Information Mana-
ger Mark Economou said
the victim told police he
was returning from dinner
at a restaurant on Yamato
Road when he stopped at
the Mobil Station at 198
West Yamato Road to buy
cigarettes. He then drove
directly home.
Economou said the victim
saw another car pull up to
the community gate as he
passed through the Spa-nish
River Boulevard entrance.
As the victim was getting
ready to exit his black con-

vertible Mustang, he was
approached on the driver's
side by a male who poin-
ted a black semi-automatic
handgun at him and shou-
ted "Give me your money."
The victim gave the suspect
cash, Economou said, and
complied with the suspect's
demand for his keys. The
victim walked away and
was not physically injured.
When he turned around, he
noticed another male in the
passenger's seat of his car.
He quickly used his cell
phone to call 911.
A deputy from the Bro-
ward County Sheriff's Of-
fice later attempted a traffic
stop on the stolen vehicle
in Pompano Beach. The

occupants bailed out of the
vehicle, which came to rest
against a small silver car,
said police. Three of the oc-
cupants escaped on foot. A
fourth was detained, but has
not been charged.
Police said one of the sus-
pects was tall with short
cropped hair and was wear-
ing black shorts and a black
shirt. The second suspect
was heavier set, also with
short cropped hair wearing
dark pants and a shirt.
Anyone with any infor-
mation is asked to contact
Detective Jeff Clare at 561-
338-1246 or Palm Beach

Undercover cop responds

to Craig's List ad, nets

stolen fishing gear

dercover Boca Raton po-
lice officer netted $8,000
worth of stolen fishing
gear by posing as an inter-
ested buyer responding to
an ad on Craig's List.
It led to the arrest of Paul
Anthony Sellers II, 45, of
1251 South Federal High-
way, Boca Raton, on a
charge of dealing in stolen
Public Information Officer
Mark Economou said that
on Aug. 28, investigators
from Boca Raton police re-
ceived a call from the Bre-
vard County Sheriff's Of-
fice. They said they were
investigating a burglary to
a business in Port Canav-
eral during which 13 high-
end fishing poles valued
at approximately $8,000
were taken. The detective
from Brevard County said
all the stolen property was
listed for sale on Craig's

List and was possibly lo-
cated in Boca Raton.
Boca Raton police detec-
tives made contact with the
seller, posing as a potential
buyer. The seller, identi-
fied as Sellers, agreed to
sell the undercover de-
tective all of the fishing
equipment for $2200. The
undercover detective set
up a time to meet with
Sellers at his residence.
When he arrived, the un-
dercover detective asked
Sellers why he was selling
expensive fishing gear for
so little. Sellers told him
he worked in the fishing
industry and the gear was
not used much anymore,
Economou said.
Sellers then helped the un-
dercover detective to load
the gear into his car. The
detective then offered Sell-
ers $2,000 for everything
and Sellers agreed. The
detective then identified
himself as a police officer
and arrested Sellers.
The suspect said he was
selling the fishing gear for
a friend who was a former
employee of the business
where the gear was stolen.
He said he didn't know
it was stolen and was not
making any money from
the sale, according to a po-
lice report.

City Fish Market for fantastic fish and seafood

By Dale M. King and
Julia Hebert

BOCA RATON Difficul-
ty finding palate-satisfying
fish and seafood in South
Florida is a common la-
Until City Fish Market
came to town.
Opened two years ago at
the former site of Pete's
Restaurant on Glades
Road in West Boca, City
Fish Market is just that a
market as well as a res-
taurant, said Head Chef
Anthony Hoff. "Our fish
is always fresh," he said.
"Nothing in here is older
than two days. We order in
small amounts. The key is
to be fresh."
Before arriving in the
comfortable dining room,
visitors pass cases and dis-
plays of fine finny delights
with signs telling what
they are and where they
came from. Table service
by a finely trained staff is
Much of City Fish Mar-
ket's daily fare is from
out of town clams from
Washington state, oysters
from Blue Point, Conn.,
and shrimp from Prince
Edward Island, for ex-
ample. Needless to say,

the lobsters have come
down from Maine; the
seafood gumbo is as Ca-
jun as James Carville, and
you can enjoy a creamy
New England clam and
cod chowder that will have
you demanding, "more
After a moment of brag-
ging about our own New
England roots, my wife
and I settled down with
Chef Hoff, who prom-
ised to bring out a bevy of
his favorites. And he did
just that. My wife tried
the Maine lobster bisque,
a thick, creamy offering
with a true Down East
taste. Hoff presented us
with two types of calamari
- and both were out of this
world. The fried Maine
calamari was delightful
with traditional garlic aioli
and marinara sauce. The
crispy sweet & spicy Thai
chili calamari was tangy,
tart and spicy, but not
Yellow fin tuna tartare with
wasabi creme fraiche and
wonton chips was some-
thing out of the ordinary,
bridging the gap between
sushi and cooked fish.
The Blue Hill Bay mus-
sels were tender and tasty,
with a mix of garlic, shal-

lots, cream and white wine
boosting the delectability.
There was more, but we
sought to save room for the
main course. Entree spe-
cialties were a delight to
the eye and the taste buds.
My wife and I shared an
item called the CFM Cre-
ation a combo of Chilean
sea bass and Atlantic salmon
done Hong Kong style. What
a charming duo, with light,
white sea bass sitting atop
a coral-colored base of
salmon. Steamed, this dish
was rounded out with sher-
ry soy, spinach, ginger and
jasmine rice.
I tend to sit up when I hear
"swordfish." Hoff deliv-
ered a Florida swordfish
"pepper steak" with the
swordfish sporting a glo-
rious cracked pepper crust
- surrounded by Portobel-
lo, a brandy peppercorn
sauce and a melted potato.
We virtually inhaled this
fine and tender entree.
We noshed on some sam-
plings broiled Scottish
parmesan crusted salmon
with a crispy basil potato
cake. Outstanding! The
shrimp and scallops lin-
guine marinara is a sauteed
marriage of the Atlantic's
best seafood with divine
New Englanders, if you're
in the mood, definitely try
the fish and chips Maine
batter, thin fries, cole slaw,
tartar sauce and yes,
even malt vinegar! (You
couldn't get better that
than even in Narragansett!)
There's always room for
dessert. And Hoff taunt-
ed us with a warm fudge

New FAU president turns out to

be a fellow Bay Stater

It's been a while since Dr.
Mary Jane Saunders took
over as the sixth president
of Florida Atlantic Univer-
For too long a time, I have
been unable to visit the
venerable Boca institution
and meet the new chief.
Then, in less than a week,
our paths crossed twice.
The second time was at a
news conference follow-
ing her recent "State of the
University" address deliv-
ered in the Lifelong Living
Center auditorium.
Actually, something hap-
pened during the speech
that gave me a reason to
approach her.
In the midst of her address,
the newly arrived president
stumbled several times
over a word. When the au-
dience started to chuckle,
the new president took a
breath and said, "It's the
Worcester accent."
That was the kicker. I had
to find out if the Worcester
she referred to was Worces-
ter, Mass., a community I
visited many times while
growing up in Attleboro,
Mass. Was I in the pres-
ence of another Bay Stater?

I had to find out.
When Dr. Saunders met the
media in a room behind the
stage, I asked if she was
from Massachusetts. Yes,
she said, she was from the
same Commonwealth that
gave you Mitt Romney,
Mike Dukakis, the whole
Kennedy clan and me.
Now, I feel we have a com-
mon bond at least through
lineage. She told me she
had heard of the City of
Attleboro and I told her
I frequented Worcester of-
ten. As a child, my parents
took my younger brother
and me to White City Park,
a Worcester amusement
park that has, over the
years, given way to a large
shopping mall.
Later in life, my wife and I
went to Worcester on many
occasions to shop at the
Worcester Outlet Mall. It
was falling on hard times
when we left New England
10 years ago and probably
isn't there any more. Too
bad. It was a great bargain
Actually, just a few days
before that encounter, I ran
into Dr. Saunders and her
husband watching football

practice behind the Ox-
ley Center. Coach Howard
Schnellenberger escorted
her over to meet the Fight-
ing Owls and they all ap-
plauded their new mentor.
I thought it might be a
tough act to follow former
FAU presidents Anthony
Catanese and Frank Bro-
gan. But clearly, Dr. Saun-
ders has gotten a grasp on
the tough task of growing
a large university in tough
economic times. I have a
feeling she's going to do
all right.
And I'm sure we'll meet

Hurricane stories
I mentioned in my last co-
lumn that my wife and I
just returned from a cruise
to the Caribbean. We had
booked the trip months ago
- and we were aware of the
potential dangers of travel-
ing in these tropical waters
during the height of hurri-
cane season.
But we were lucky that
week. Actually, we had
traveled to the Western Ca-
ribbean in August of 2009,
and chose the Eastern Ca-
ribbean this time. Both

trips were free of weather
There were lots of tropical
waves coming off the Afri-
can coast during our week
on the ship. We watch the
forecasts on FOX, which
seemed to offer fair and
balanced reports.
Needless to say, we made
it back to land with nothing
more than a few stiff breez-
es. But if we had taken the
cruise one week later, we
could have been in serious
At least one hurricane it
may have been Earl struck
St. Martaan and Puerto
Rico two of the ports we
visited on our trip. As we
watched those weather
reports a week after our
trip, we breathed a sigh of
relief that we were not on
the ship. The weather guys
said cruise ships were be-
ing diverted from their
regular courses. And from
experience, that is no fun.
We beat the hurricane curse
for a week. But there's still
a lot of time before the hur-
ricane season bids farewell.
To tell you the truth, I can't
wait until it's over.

Once I heard a true story
about a man, giving a public
talk during which he repeat-
edly bragged about being a
self-taught man. At the con-
clusion, someone in the au-
dience got up and addressed
the speaker, saying: "Sir,
next time would you con-
sider using some help?"
Indeed, all persons need help
of some kind, even in areas
where they may feel overly
confident. God placed hu-
mans in society where they
can contribute of what they
know and have, but also re-
ceive the benefits others can
offer. Sadly, human pride
often prevents people from
achieving much more, with
the help of others, than they
would by going alone.
The so-called "lone ranger"
is often a loser from the
word go! Those who think
they know it all, and avoid
seeking any assistance,
move through life only to
manifest their ignorance and
quite often their stupidity as
As people look at things

from varied perspectives,
from different angles, from
personal experience, and
aided by deeper reflec-
tion, they can help another
achieve much more than
one would without their as-
No individual is omni-com-
petent in any area. All can
gain from insights, sugges-
tions, and even from a better
way of doing certain things
differently, while ensuring
the best possible results.
As it has been wisely stated,
"the greatest ability is de-
pendability." No one is ever
diminished by seeking help
from another. It is no sign of
weakness to ask questions
whose answers may lead
one to genuine accomplish-
ment, even victory!
If it is true that "practice
makes perfect," remember
that even after much practice
you can still receive positive
suggestions for further im-
provement, and concrete aid
on how to reach your goal!
Besides, failure is never fi-
nal; it is simply an indica-

tion that you have not yet
succeeded to the level you
desire, or on the basis of
the expectations and judg-
ments of others. One sig-
nificant thought I carried in
my pocket for several years,
continues to vibrate in my
heart and mind: "I would
rather attempt to do some-
thing great and fail, than at-
tempt to do nothing and suc-
The trouble is that many who
presume to be self-sufficient
keep on failing even without
knowing it, simply because
they don't consult with oth-
ers, nor go after help which
is abundantly available.
There is a better and a best
way to do anything, to
achieve any purpose, to
reach any destination, to
accomplish any significant
feat. Quite often, however,
that may not be what you
have initially devised but,
rather, what you may learn
from another. Be humble to
acknowledge that and move
on to real triumph!

The Peak of Hurricane Season and the

Continuous Rain

We're in the midst of hurri-
cane season 2010 and noth-
ing yet for South Florida.
NOAA's predictions of an
85% above normal hurri-
cane season have yet to send
South Florida a threatening
storm. Hurricane Igor was
pronounced a category four
as of September 13th as it
lingers in the Atlantic. Igor
is said to strengthen over
the week and possibly stay
ocean bound keeping its
slow north west movement.
Only time will tell whether
Igor strikes land or whether
it merely debilitates over
the ocean and Julia is fol-
lowing steadily in its path.
With our hurricane season
lasting six months ending
in November we have still
managed to stay out of the
action, keeping our fingers
Hurricanes originate in
many places but there are
three main "hot spots" me-
teorologist's keep an eye
on during the season. Du-
ring the early months of the
season, the Gulf of Mexico
is watched closely; while
in the last months, east of
Florida is a main area for

hurricane development.
The contact of the Sahara
Desert's dry air with the
Atlantic Ocean's warm wa-
ters continue to birth the
most tropical storms from
August to October. In this

period, hurricanes start de-
veloping more frequently
when they reach the seas
over South America, allo-
wing this to be the main
focus for the season.
With the hurricane season's
peak day being September
10th, it's predicted that a
couple stronger hurricanes
could be brewing in the
Atlantic over the next few
weeks. In the mean time,
instead of hurricanes for
South Florida, it's looking
more like rain!
There has been nothing sun-
ny about the Sunshine State
these past months and the

months to come are looking
quite the same. Florida's
longest season is responsi-
ble for our current weather
patterns also known as the
rainy season. Florida's av-
erage rainfall amounts to a
total of 33 to 44 inches be-
tween May and the end of
October every year. That's
like trying to walk through
knee deep water if it was all
concentrated in one area. In
addition to large volumes
of rain that can cause floo-
ding, this severe weather
season brings high quanti-
ties of threatening light-
ning assaults, possible hail,
gusty high winds, and even
During the month of Sep-
tember the rainfall is gene-
rally influenced by tropical
systems, which accounts
for most of our rainy season
across the South Flo-rida
region. Our weather pat-
tern has stayed at a cons-
tant high pressure from the
north, bringing in a mid to
high moisture pressure sys-
tem that's slowly creeping
west keeping us nice and
wet for weeks to come.

People Development

STraining is not for

At a training seminar I con-
ducted several years ago in
Dallas, Texas, I was critici-
zed by the late Stanley Mar-
cus, former President and
Chief Executive officer of
Neiman Marcus Department
Stores. He was adamant that
the word, 'training' is for ani-
mals and not to be used for
people. He thought the word
training was demeaning. I de-
ferred to his seniority but still
stand in respect of Webster's
dictionary which defi-nes
training as "to instruct so as to
make proficient or qualified."
Throughout time we have
found that the word training
has remained a viable de-
scription for educating and
improving the skills of peo-
ple. We train the military, we
train emergency personnel on
disaster response, nurses on
hospital procedures and we
train our personnel on meth-
ods and techniques.Training is
a vital part of management's
job. It allows the employee to
practice methods in a stress
free environment where er-
rors can be observed and
correc-ted without costing
the company in lost business.
Trai-ning includes much
more than methodology; it
must also include information
on existing and new services/
products,technological upda-
tes, and practices in written
and verbal communication.
Don't assume that things you
mention to an employee is
training. Training should be
organized and ongoing.
In order to be successful in
today's market place the em-
ployee should not only man-

age their time effectively but
also be able to operate their
own virtual office. In this
electronic age of the internet,
cell phones, laptop comput-
ers, and web-based video
conference calls, employees
must be proficient with the
various software programs
and devices that are involved
in their job function. The type
of training in the past will not
work today training today
must be directed to make the
employee more knowled-ge-
able and attuned to the needs
or wants of the target market.
For example in sales, the sales
manager who formulates a
training program which fo-
cuses on a solid foundation of
selling methodology allows
the salesperson to practice
their sales presentation, and
offers ways to answer com-
mon objections, is sure to see
a marked increase in perfor-
mance and closing rate as a
result. There is nothing wrong
with salespeople lear-ning
how to develop methods in
which to close sales and gain
relationships. We are not talk-
ing about using trick methods
or gimmicks these selling
"techniques" are dinosaurs
that belong to the distant past
and will never work in to-
day's market. What we are
talking about is raising the
salesperson's awareness of
the mechanics of the sale, the
personal selling methods, the
presentation expertise, and
the ways to negotiate a sale.
Whether it is a product or
service related all businesses
need to make provisions for
formal training. Have you e-

animals only
ver gone into a business and
been turned off by the recep-
tionist's attitude? Training
programs that include spea-
king skills and writing skills
are more in demand today be-
cause many employees are not
properly trained in these two
essential tools. Companies
that are getting the edge over
competition are incorpora-
ting communication training
as part of the training pro-
gram. Show me a successful
business and I will show you
an ongoing training program
focusing on product know-
ledge, people skills (empathy
training), selling skills, math-
ematical skills, indivi-dual
management skills and com-
munication skills. The train-
ing program must encompass
all facets of the business
in order to provide the em-
ployee with a well-rounded
foundation upon which to
build his or her job function.
The bottom line is that we are
in the 'people development'
business. As you build the
skills of your people so will
you build the business.
Should the word training
sessions trouble you like it
did Mr.Marcus,you can call
them motivational session,
learning seminars etc. or as
Shakespeare wrote, "What's
in a name? That which we
call a rose by any other name
would smell as sweet."

McCarthy champions "shortsale" instead

of foreclosure; helps local charities

By Donovan Ortega

With Florida's real estate
market crumbling at a fast-
er clip than anywhere in the
nation, Tim McCarthy of
All Pro Florida Inc. has im-
plemented the" shortsale"
as an option to property
owners who once thought
their only choice was fore-
"The state of Florida has
been greatly affected by the
economic turmoil of the last
five years," said McCar-
thy while sitting in his Fort
Lauderdale office. E\i cr -
one is looking for alterna-
tives to foreclosure and
loan modification because,
quite frankly, banks don't
want anything to do with
them and no one wants
their credit destroyed."
The "short sale" acts as a
compromise between lend-
er and borrower. Rather
than banks forcing foreclo-
sures and incurring hefty
fees on themselves and

bad credit marks on bor-
rowers, the property is sold
for less than the balance
owed on the note and the
proceeds are turned over to
the lender. The banks lose
less money and the buyer's
credit history remains vir-
tually unscathed.
"I've been a licensed mort-
gage broker and realtor in
Florida for almost twenty
years. I know the business.
Loan modification isn't
working because the value
of properties are currently
less than half from what is
owed on the note. Most of
them wouldn't work out
for fifteen years!" said Mc-
Carthy. "The short sale is a
great tool because it takes
lemons and makes lemon-
Tim McCarthy was born in
Delray Beach in 1956. A
South Florida native ever
since, he's bought, sold,
and refinanced over 400
million dollars worth of
real estate. In looking back

on his time in the market,
he can't remember the in-
dustry or the economy be-
ing this battered.
"It's tough out there. But
what I want people to know
is that there are options and
I've been finding them for
years," said McCarthy.
He's also interested in col-
laborating with local chari-
ties to which he would
donate a portion of his
commissions. It's some-
thing he's done in the past
with great success.
"With things being like
they are it's important for
people within the commu-
nity to make a difference,"
said McCarthy, "I want to
foster new partnerships
with charities like the
March of Dimes to really
make a difference. It's the
least I can do."

"Mademoiselle Chambon"
is an exquisite, bittersweet
fable of forbidden love
from France via writer-di-
rector Stephane Brize.
Based on a novel by Eric
Holder, "Mile Chambon"
explores desire, disconten-
tment and the consequen-
ces of following rash emo-
tional impulses.
Jean (Vincent Lindon) is
a solid, blue-collar Pari-
sian citizen, married to lo-
ving and loyal Anne-Marie
(Aure Atika) and father to
bright, energetic Jeremy
(Arthur Le Houerou).
Jean is a stone mason and
all-around contractor. His
son's teacher, Veronique
Chambon (Sandrine Kiber-
lain) invites Jean to lecture
Jeremy's classmates about
his practical occupation.
Jean graciously accepts the
assignment, and after Mile
Chambon thanks him, she
asks him what she might
do about a leaky window
in her apartment.
This is one of those ah-
ha moments, played with
great subtlety and delicacy
by Lindon and Kiberlain,
who were once man and
wife. Though nothing has
been spoken out loud, we
know Jean has already fall-
en under the spell of Mile
Chambon. Though the re-
quest is seemingly inno-
cent, we know it is not, as
we can see desire building
in the limpid eyes of Vero-
nique, who has had many

affairs but never a long-
term relationship.
Once a concert violinist,
Veronique has been a drif-
ter and a loner ever since
she quit music. Jean agrees
to install a new window
in her house, and when he
spots the violin she once
played, he asks Veronique
if she could play him a
Veronique refuses at first,
then acquiesces, but only
if she can play with her
back turned; a sign of the
extreme shyness that sabo-
taged her career.
The tune is an achingly
romantic piece by Fe-
renc von Vecsey. Again
without words, we know
Jean is a goner. Their pas-
sion is sealed with a kiss.
The next day she leaves a
simple note: "Thinking of
you." Not long afterward,
Anne-Marie informs Jean
she is pregnant.
There is a reason that for-
bidden love is called for-
bidden. It may be won-
derfully exciting and
invigorating, but it causes

terrible pain for loved ones.
Jean is such a good guy
that he even washes the
feet of his elderly, who is
having an 80th birthday
party hosted by Anne-Ma-
rie. Recklessly, Jean in-
vites Veronique to play her
violin at the party. Equally
recklessly, Veronique
During the party Jean inex-
plicably flies offthe handle
at his wife, who wails,
"What's going on Jean?
Where are you?"
Jean is lost in the wilder-
ness of lust and passion,
but Veronique calls his
bluff when she tells him
she has finally decided to
settle down and stay at the
school where she is.
Anyone who has been
tangled in a triangular rela-
tionship will react with dis-
comfort to Jean's dilemma.
Will he go with his heart or
his head?
You'll have to see this mas-
terful little film to see the
conclusion, but it is not as
simple as you may think.

On a somber note, pio-
neering South Florida ac-
tor, producer and arts ac-
tivist Brian C. Smith died
near midnight Tuesday,
Sept. 7 at his Fort Lauder-
dale home.
Smith first came on the
scene in the late 1960s
with his Gold Coast Play-
ers. He founded his own
theater, the Sea Ranch
Dinner Theatre, in 1972.
When the Sea Ranch Ho-
tel was demolished he
relocated to the Oakland
West Dinner Theater in
Smith enjoyed a close
friendship with Boca's
theatrical legend Jan
McArt, and he performed
at her Royal Palm Dinner
Theatre several times.
Smith went on to found
the Off Broadway Theatre
on 26th street in Wilton
Manors, but he gave up
his lease in 1999.
In 1992, Smith was hon-
ored with the prestigious
George Abbott Award in
recognition of his theatri-
cal achievements, which
included producing the
Carbonell Awards show
several times.
I respected Brian as a pro-
fessional and valued him
as a personal friend. He
will truly be missed.

an honor system for buy-
ing books outside after
closing. You just toss the
coins into a box outside if
you make a purchase after
closing (it does feel like
the 1960's).
If you're looking to get
healthy (or travel solo and
feel comfortable) check
out the Oaks at Ojai. This
inclusive spa is reason-
ably priced and provides
a non-stress atmosphere
filled with exercise and
healthy food. The outdoor
pool area is surrounded
by the calming mountains
and it is located right in the
heart of town. There are
exercise classes that range
from yoga to Pilates, aqua
cardio, mind-body aware-
ness, cardio step and hikes,
dance classes and veg-
gie breaks throughout the
day. The best part is that
no one bothers you to do
anything you don't want
to do (oaksspa.com). The
food is great and meals are
served to you at your lei-
sure (heaven awaits).
If you stay at the Oaks at
Ojai you can take a few
side trips around town. The
one I suggest is a 10-min-
ute drive up the moun-

named Meditation Mount.

At 98, Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, enjoys quiet life after

donating millions to charities

By Dale M King and Julia

ta, Countess de Hoemle,
Boca Raton's much-loved
and much-admired lea-
ding philanthropist, is so-
mething of a dichotomy.
While she has donated un-
told millions in her own
name and that of her late
husband, Count Adolph de
Hoemle, she is eminently
approachable. She hugs
children, smiles brightly
and has a wry wit that's
unfettered by her 98 years.
"I belong to the do-it-
yourself club," she told in-
terviewers from the Boca
Raton Tribune as she ma-
neuvered her stroller chair
into a comfortable posi-
tion. She gave them more
than an hour of her pre-
cious time.
The Countess her friends
call her "Rita" quickly
puts visitors at ease with
her charm and warmth.
She admits she's not as ac-
tive in the community as
she used to be and doesn't
make the many public ap-
pearances she did in the
past. She is right at home
in her modest apartment
at St. Andrew's Estates
South, enjoys socializing
with neighbors and, most
of all, loves bridge. "It

keeps my mind going, and
gives me a chance to be so-
cial," she said.
She has a driver to take her
to doctor and dental ap-
pointments in her Toyota.
The Countess does plan
to appear as the guest of
honor at the March of
Dimes-sponsored "Signa-
ture Chefs and Wine Ex-
travaganza" Sept. 24 at
the Boca Raton Resort &
Club. The event will also
mark her 98th birthday,
which takes place on the
same day.
Born to middle-class pa-
rents in Karlsruhe, in the
Black Forest in Germa-
ny, in 1912, she came to
America in 1931. She said
her parents were both mu-
sicians and tried to entice
her to play the piano. But
Henrietta wasn't particu-
larly interested in practic-
ing, she said, while she
saw other children out-
doors playing.
At age 18, she was living
with her grandparents in
New York. "In my spare
time, my grandmother
used to take me to the
Stock Market." This pro-
vided a lesson in finances
to the young lady in her
newly adopted country.
"I knew you had to have
money, good health and be

Henrietta, Countess de Hoerne, is shown with Boca Tribune
Managing Editor Dale King and his wife, Julia Hebert, at her 95th
birthday party.

And it didn't take her long
- six months to be exact to
get her American citizen-
ship. "This is my country,
right or wrong," she said in
a strong, determined voice.
The Countess got the ins-
piration for philanthropy
early in life. While visit-
ing a relative in the hos-
pital, she noticed name
plates on various build-
ings and wings. "I thought
it was wonderful to give
to others." It's no wonder
that her first donation was
the East Wing of Lawrence
Hospital in Bronxville,
N.Y Later, when she and
her late husband relocated
to Boca Raton, their first
charitable act was a dona-
tion to Boca Raton Com-
munity Hospital [now
Boca Raton Regional Hos-
But she also wants others

to give. She often presents
organizations with "chal-
lenge grants" to entice
them to raise a matching
amount of money. "This is
an incentive to others. It's
a wonderful feeling when
you give to a cause."
What's striking about The
Countess is her down-to-
earth nature. She bears a
title, but doesn't wear it
like a priceless diamond.
She's quick to offer love,
caring and friendship. She
loves children, calling
them "our future," and has
donated millions to organi-
zations that help and serve
In all, some 40 buildings
bear the de Hoemle name
- and not just in Boca Ra-
ton. Among them are the
headquarters of Children's
Home Society in West
Palm Beach, buildings on

the Lake Worth and Boca
Raton campuses of Palm
Beach State College and
the Red Cross office in
Boca Raton. She donat-
ed money in memory of
her husband to build the
Count Adolph de Hoemle
Amphitheatre and Count
Adolph de Hoemle build-
ing that's home to the
Caldwell Theatre troupe.
Soon after arriving in
Boca, as a birthday pres-
ent to her husband, she
bought the former FEC
railroad station which was
then renovated and is now

owned by the Boca Raton
Historical Society.
The Countess said she
sometimes had to cajole
Adolph for money. When
she approached him about
paying a half-million dol-
lars for the train station,
he was initially reluctant.
Recalling that moment,
she said, "He wanted to be
coaxed into things. I got
the money."
She convinced him it was
"for posterity." And it's
still a busy venue today.
The Countess was married
three times, she said. The

5 three of them."
Count de Hoemle was the owner of Stewart Stamping
Corp. in Yonkers, N.Y His process for welding airplane
Swings earned him millions. When he sold the business
.and retired, he and the Countess spent 40 years traveling
the world before they settled in Boca Raton in 1981.
It was in sunny Boca that the couple found their phil-
'-Y !anthropic niche, donating millions to healthcare institu-
tions, educational facilities and other organizations.
Not all the contributions were in the seven-figure range.
She helped with smaller donations following the 9/11 at-
tacks and provided assistance money in the wake of the
2004 and 2005 hurricanes.
Many ask who doles out the De Hoemle millions. The
Countess does all the work, she says. "I have a big bas-
ket. I study all the requests," sometimes staying up until
1:30 a.m. It's going to take a while to go though that pile
of letters, she said. "I have a six-year backlog."

she said. "He asked for a Cadillac Escalade."
That letter ended up in the trash.
While she's not involved in politics, she does have some
favorites. County Commissioner and former Boca Mayor
Steven Abrams "is the only person I ever supported. He's
good and he's honest."
Current Mayor Susan Whelchel "is a smart cookie." They
served together on the board of the Historical Society.
She likes President Harry Truman, particularly his "The

While her health is good, she says she tires easily, so she
doesn't go out much and visits with few friends. She cred-
its Dr. Richard Freiberg of Pompano Beach, an American
doctor trained in Chinese herbalism and acupuncture, for
helping her overcome a troublesome medical concern.

The mission of the March of Dime is to improve the health of babies by
preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. The March
of Dimes carries out this mission through programs of research,
community services, education, and advocacy that saves babies lives.

Jordan and Dylan were
born on July 1, 2007,
three months premature
weighing 2 pounds 3
ounces and 2 pounds 11
ounces, respectively.
The first nine weeks of
their lives they lived in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and faced many
life threatening challenges. Thanks to the research funded by the
March of Dimes that has lead to amazing medical breakthroughs over
the past decade, Jordan and Dylan overcame each obstacle
they faced. Today they are happy and healthy three-year old
"Our family will be forever grateful to the March of
Dimes and the research that has been done to
.help premature babies. Each and every person
who supports the March of Dimes is helping

News of the world has a distinct

Boca flavor

News from overseas this
week. First, from the Mot-
tek family in Portugal.
Many of you will remem-
ber Peter, Mercedes, Carl
and Dominique Mottek
and all their charitable en-
deavors in Boca Raton.
Peter and Mercedes were
the chairs of the inaugural
March of Dimes Signature
Chefs event. Moving to Lis-
bon Portugal hasn't slowed
Mercedes down. She told
me she spent the summer
focusing on the Legacy
Scholarship Fund Portugal
and organizing the fund's
annual gala which has a
James Bond theme which
takes place Oct. 9 at Ho-
tel Palacio Estoril just in
case you're in Europe at
the time!
Other travelers include do-
cumentary producer Ka-
ren Lustgarten who wrote
to say she was in Alaska
and planning to travel to
Antarctica next. This Los
Angeles native is certainly
a globetrotter, having won
awards for her documenta-
ries for non-profits working
in on Haiti and Africa.
Speaking of non-profits,
more that 30 were rep-
resented at the Junior
League of Boca Raton's
free social media and web
seminar at the Vegso Cen-
ter this week. Taught by
award-winning journalist
and now owner of Froogle
PR, Sharon Geltner, and
cleverly titled "You are not
a Dinosaur," Sharon took
us through all the ways
to use the web and social

media marketing to raise
much-needed funds and
awareness for non-profits.
My fellow "non-dinosaurs"
included photographer Bet-
sy Chesler who has started
a foundation called Came-
ras for Kids, a non-profit
teaching foster children
how to enjoy photography.
She's starting a branch of
the foundation in Chicago
next month and is looking
to recruit teachers in oth-
er U.S. cities. Check out
I got a personal tour of the
newly remodeled Wynd-
ham Garden Hotel from
sales director, Angela
Colicheski. Angela is a
big supporter of Making
Strides Against Breast Can-
cer and the hotel is one of
this year's walk sponsors. It
is also donating a percent-
age of sales from rooms on
its special floor for women
travelers great idea! The
hotel also has pet-friendly
rooms complete with "take
home" doggie bowls.
While I was there I bumped
into West Boca entrepreneur
Elvira Emankwa. Elvira is
a global meeting planner
and has also launched a
new venture called Total
Woman Signature Events.
She's holding two upcom-
ing seminars for female
executives at the hotel
with Commander Turner
Group of Merrill Lynch as
presenting sponsors. Oct.
16 is "Sensual & Smart"
and Nov. 13 is "Wealthy

From June through November,
La Cigale at 253 SE 2nd Av-
enue in Delray Beach (561-276-
0600) offers a culinary tour of
the Mediterranean a rotating
weekly change of menus from
Spain, Greece, Italy and France.
This evening Spain was fea-
tured and we sampled a plate
of tapas, including prosciutto,
kalamati olives, hummus, feta
cheese, stuffed grape leaves and
fire roasted peppers-a wonder-
ful sampling. This was followed
by a tasty chicken chickpea and
cilantro soup and a somewhat
understated beef empanada.
There was a delicious pan
seared branzino with roasted

tomato and a great cilantro in-
fused white rice. Paella with its
Spanish rice, chicken, chorizo,
shrimp, sweet peppers, peas
and onions was a most flavor-
ful dish that we devoured with
great pleasure. The pork loin
was slightly dry with its stuff-
ing of pistachio and sun dried
tomato, sauteed spinach and
a lovely chimichuri drizzle.
With a choice of flan caramel or
mixed sorbet, this four course
dinner was a bargain at $25. per
Turning to the standard menu,
the offering included a jumbo
shrimp cocktail, blue point oys-
ters, a steamed giant artichoke

and Scottish smoked salmon
with capers, red onions and
sour cream. There were six
salads on the menu we chose
the Belgian endive with grapes,
Anjou pear, walnuts, gorgonzo-
la and a champagne vinaigrette
- a crisp, tasty repast much en-
Some six hot appetizers in-
cluded veal sweetbreads, pan
seared with chanterelle mush-
room cream sauce that's out of
this world Don't miss it! The
duck foie gras seared rare
with a cassis liquor reduction
and fresh berries was abso-
lutely outstanding no wonder
it is their most requested of-

fearing. We also tried the char
grilled artichoke with parme-
san cheese, crushed pepper,
olive oil and remoulade which
we found to be lacking in the
taste we sought.
Turning to seafood, the seven
selections include the restau-
rant's star attraction, the dover
sole meuniere with a potato
puree and baby vegetables in a
lemon butter sauce. Delightful!
Jumbo sea scallops and giant
shrimp were cooked to perfec-
tion done, not overdone to
be a taste treat. The dish had
champagne shallots vinaigrette
hearts of palm and spinach to
compliment it.
Grilled lamb chops, served
medium rare, were tender as
well as tasty. Tell your server
the degree of grilling you pre-
fer and Chef will oblige. The
dish is served with potato gra-
tin, green asparagus and a rose-
mary demi glace delicious!
The Mediterranean delight -

moussaka was a cassolette
of baked eggplant and ground
lamb finished nicely with to-
mato and bechamel sauces.
There are nine other meat and
poultry specialties for one to
select from.
Lastly, from a list of seven
desserts, we had a tarte tatin,
served flamb6 with a cr6me
englaise and calvados. There
was a deep flavored lemon
tart and the house specialty -
creme brulee, feather light with
delightful vanilla bean custard
under a caramelized brown
sugar coating. All three were
rich and satisfying.
La Cigale opens Monday
through Friday for luncheon
from 11:30AM to 2PM. Din-
ner is served Monday through
Saturday from 6PM to 11PM.
Closed Sundays until the fall.
With its full bar, fine service
and a beautiful atmosphere,

Delray Beach conducting enhanced water disinfection through Oct. 6

ensure that the city's drin-
king water remains safe and
compliant with all state and
fede-ral water quality re-
quirements, Delray Beach
is required to implement
preventive measu-res that
are safe and approved by the
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection.
As a result, the city is con-

duc-ting its semi-annual wa-
ter distribution line enhanced
disinfection program. It be-
gan Sept. 7 and continues
through Oct. 6.
The city's routine mainte-
nance program will include a
"system burn" which utilizes
free chlorine as the primary
disinfectant. During this
preventive maintenance ac-
tivity, water customers may
notice an increased chlorine
odor and taste in their tap
water. This is a normal oc-
currence and will cause no
adverse health effects, city
officials said.
During this time period, cus-
tomers with special needs
should be aware of potential
problems with their equip-
ment and systems (e.g., kid-
ney dialysis machines).

In addition, owners of
tropical fish aquariums and
holding tanks for fish and
shellfish (i.e., stores and res-
taurants) should be aware
that this temporary change
in the disinfection process
may be toxic to aquatic life
if not pro-perly addressed.
Any such side effects will
diminish when the city re-
verts to the normal disinfec-
tion method Oct. 7. Users
are encouraged to contact
an appropriate professional
for guidance on how to use
their equipment during this
The City will also flush fire
hydrants during this period
as part of the enhanced disin-
fection procedure. Custom-
ers may notice flowing water
in streets and swales, local-

ized lower water pressures
and a slight disco-loration
of their tap water. This is a
safe and normal occurrence
during this process and will
cause no adverse health ef-
fects. If you notice flushing
activities in your immediate
area, please refrain from us-
ing laundry machines until
activities have ceased.
City officials assure resi-
dents that this is a routine
preventive maintenance
procedure. The city's public
drinking water remains safe
and compliant with all state
and federal requirements for
primary water quality.
For information, contact the
Public Utilities Department
at (561) 243-7312 between 7
a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday
through Friday.

"If you chase two rabbits,
both will escape "(unknown).
"Whatsoever thy handfindeth
to do, do it with thy might; for
there is no work, nor device,
nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in
the grave, whither thou goest"
(Ecc. 9.10). One of the great-
est lessons I learned early in
life was that if I wanted to
succeed at an1 iliin2 I was
going to have to work. As I
have grown older I am learn-
ing an equally important les-
son and it is that there is no
end to what I can spend my
life "doing". Since I can't do
everything, what should I be
doing and how can I get the
maximum satisfaction out of
what I end up doing!!!
It is possible to race through
life majoring on the minor
things. In fact, years ago
I heard someone say "the
main thing is to keep the
main thing the main thing,"
and I liked it so much, I fre-
quently quote it and have
made it one of the maxims
of my life.

To Be Truly Productive and
Happy, You Must Set Pri-
Logan Pearsall Smith, in his
work Afterthoughts, said:
"There are two things to aim
at in life; first, to get what
you want; and, after that, to
enjoy it. Only the wisest of
mankind achieve the sec-
ond." For most people life is
lived in quiet desperation. It
is a marathon of misery, just
groaning and complaining
from one event to the next.

By Pastor Sandy

Happiness doesn't just happen

mal that can't even talk, than
with people.
So what are your priori-
ties? I frequently ask myself,
"What difference will this
make a hundred years from
now? Most of what ends up
dominating my life are the
little things that won't mat-
ter even days from now. I
can tell you spending time
developing your character
or playing with your kids or
engaging in meaningful dis-
cussions with your wife is
never wasted time.

Excuses Can Extinguish
Daily Happiness
All of us can manufacture
reasons why we are not
happy: "if only I had a little
more money; if Ijust had my
degree; if only I hadn't mar-
ried this person; if only my
kids would obey me." These
and a thousand more all act
as parasites, sucking the joy
out of life.
In this life we must make
choices and happiness is a
choice. Numerous times in
Scripture we are told to "en-
joy life" and yet it is never
unrestrained, reckless aban-
don, but wise, prudent free-
dom. While we are told to
"go for it" we are warned,
we will "give an account"
(Ecclesiates 12.13,14). In es-
sence Solomon is saying,
"get rid of the things that
will hurt you or bring you
pain." Just because you can,
doesn't mean you should.
Take an honest look at what
drugs can do to you. Look
at the effects of tobacco on
your body. Take an honest
look at the pain and serious

consequences that you will
suffer if you make it part
of your lifestyle. Make a
choice, a conscious deter-
mination that you will con-
trol what you ingest into
your body. Determine to con-
trol your desires and impulses
and remove those things that
will ultimately bring pain.

Choosing Is Not Easy
Again, happiness is a choi-
ce, but indecision is a ha-
bit. Decision making is hard
work. Peter Drucker wrote:
"A decision is a judgment.
It is a choice between alter-
natives. It is rarely a choice
between right and wrong. It
is at best a choice between
"almost right" and "prob-
ably wrong"- but much more
often a choice between two
courses of action, neither of
which is probably more near-
ly right than the other." In
other words, we have to en-
gage in the process of think-
If I want this day to be one
filled with joy, I must choose
how I will respond and not
just react to my circumstanc-
es. If I want to come to the
end of my life and look back
with a sense of great satisfac-
tion, I must discipline myself
to make daily choices that
will yield a lifetime of ben-
eficial fruit. Our universe is
governed by both physical
and spiritual laws. I believe
those physical laws point
us toward the Creator; the
spiritual laws tell us we can
know Him personally, both
today and forever... and that
I have found to be the key to
real happiness.

Hard economic times could get

divorcee an alimony reduction

or elimination

Question: I got divorced
six years ago. My former
husband was, and is, a high
school teacher in West Palm
Beach. I was a very suc-
cessful licensed real estate
sales person in Boca Raton.
My income for the year of
our divorce was a net of
about $450,000. My hus-
band, with his master de-
gree in English, and tenure,
earned about $50,000.00.
We had been married for 20
years. Our settlement called
for me to pay him perma-
nent alimony of$6, 000.00 a
I got the house on a deep-
water canal, and our boat.
He kept his entire retirement
account, and our brokerage
account of $250,000, afifty/
fifty split of the assets.
By 2008, my net com-
missions had dropped to
$175,000.00, and in 2009
to $50,000.00. This year
I would have to be lucky
during the rest of the year
to make that much. I have
,,1 ;0 but few buyers. The
i""" ,; that are expiring are
not being renewed Most
people have houses with
mortgages that are greater
than their house values.
When we were divorced,
my house had a small mort-
gage. A year ago, I took
out an equity line to get me
;iun, ,i the bad times. Now
I've used up $100,000.00
of the $150,000 line for my

own expenses and the ali-
mony, and have the boat for
My former husband will
not agree to give up the ali-
mony, or even reduce it. My
lawyer thinks I could easily
get a reduction in court, but
that will cost at last half of
the rest of my equity line.
What are my chances of a
getting a reduction or total
cancellation of my alimony
payment? What do you
think it will cost to go back
to court?

Answer: It appears to be
very possible to get a sub-
stantial reduction in your al-
imony obligation. It is pos-
sible that the alimony would
be eliminated.
Unless your agreement sta-
tes that your alimony obliga-
tion was non-modifiable, it
would be modifiable under
Florida law. In order to be
modifiable, you would have
to prove that your reduction
of income was substantial,
involuntary and permanent.
In your case, it appears that
the reduction is involuntary
and substantial. An argu-
ment could be made that the
reduction is not permanent,
but the judge will probably
agree that a recovery of the
real estate marker would be
speculative. You may have
to bring in a local industry
expert to testify to the sta-
tus of the resale estate mar-

ket in South Florida at this
time and give an opinion of
projections on the next few
Permanent could be in-
terpreted to mean, "In the
foreseeable future". That
interpretation would allow
a recalculation of an appro-
priate amount of alimony
or total elimination of the
alimony. The judge might
leave your former husband
only a nominal award, in or-
der to keep the alimony op-
tion alive.
If the alimony were entirely
cancelled, there would be
nothing left to be modified
upward if your income re-
sumed its normal pace, or
increased substantially
Estimating the cost of liti-
gation is always like read-
ing tea leaves. It always
depends on how reasonable
the other side will be in their
litigation tactics and in their
negotiating position. You
probably will not be respon-
sible for your former hus-
band's fees.
Proving the facts necessary
for you to put on a case does
not seem to be complex.
The judge can take into con-
sideration what he or she
reads in the business section
of the newspaper, in addi-
tion to your testimony, and
that of your expert. Your
monthly alimony obligation
is high enough to make the
effort worthwhile.

happy with my lips. I want
them to be thick and sexy
like Angelina Jolie lips.
I told my friends I wanted
to get collagen injections
in my lips and they told me
it was an outdated proce-
dure. Is that true? If so,
how can I get my thin lips
to look fuller?

Answer: Full lips have al-
ways been sought after, re-
gardless of age. A plump
pout is considered to be a
sign of youth and an icon
of sensuality. However, as
we age, the lips can lose
their plumpness and full-
ness. The upper lip, in
particular, can appear thin;
and the distance from the
tip of the nose to the up-
per lip lengthens as the lips
drop "down," which can
cause a frown-like appear-
ance around the mouth.
A lip lift or lip augmenta-
tion can increase the vol-
ume and fullness of the
lips and give a more at-
tractive contour and natu-
ral pout. Lip augmentation
can be useful for people
who have small, deflated
lips, asymmetry, recon-
structive needs, dropping
or sagging upper lip, lack

of color, wrinkling from
smoking or aging and oth-
er complaints.
To answer your ques-
tion, collagen is still used
sometimes as a filler, but
there are also many other
alternative treatments and
procedures to consider.
Lip augmentation uses
synthetic or biological
products or surgical re-
structuring to enhance the
lips using several different
treatment options.
A common procedure that
we hear a lot about these
days is the use of filler ma-
terials to give the soft lip
tissue more fullness and
support. These materi-
als can be injected or im-
planted into the skin and
can include collagen or
fat, or new fillers, such as
Restylane, Perlane and Ju-
Some people go a step fur-
ther and have a surgical
lip lift, which shortens the
area between the nose and
upper lip with a cut under
the nose to remove extra
skin, in order to reduce a
frown-like appearance.
These procedures are per-
formed in the doctor's
office under local or I.V.
sedation. After treatment,

people usually experience
some swelling and bruis-
ing. In the case of inci-
sions, sutures are removed
after several days. As with
all surgery, there are some
risks, which you should
discuss with your surgeon.
Some people opt for Per-
maLip implants. Some
lip implants may give an
unnatural look to the lips,
making them hard and
rubbery. However, the im-
plant called PermaLip is a
permanent implant that re-
tains the natural contours
of the lips. These implants
are made of non-rupture,
soft silicon. Two small
incisions are made in the
covers of the mouth.
Then the implant is passed
through a tunnel in the lip
and centered. While this
is a permanent implant, it
can also be removed in 10
minutes if a patient so de-
Talk to your plastic sur-
geon to decide which
treatment is right for you.
You must realize that no
one can perform miracles;
however, a highly skilled
surgeon can transform
what you do have into a
more balanced look alto-

The mind is your most powerful weapon

against aging. Keep yours young!

You might think the most
important deterrent to brain
cell deterioration is engag-
ing in mind-bending games
or doing the daily crossword
puzzle. Taxing the brain and
learning new skills are excel-
lent activities, but they usu-
ally don't get your heart rate
up and pump blood to your
brain cells.
Perhaps the most striking
brain research discovery
of the last decade is that
physical exercise can fore-
stall mental decline. It may
even restore memory. Ani-
mal studies have shown that
aerobic exercise increases
capillary development in the
brain, increasing blood sup-
ply, which carries more oxy-
gen to the brain.
But it doesn't have to be
formal exercise at the gym.
You can play tennis a couple
times a week, ride a bike, or
walk a mile each day. If you
want to get really serious
about it, though, a combined
program of aerobics and
weight training will produce
the best results.
Fit people have sharper
brains; and people who
are out of shape, but then
get into shape, sharpen their
unretouched photo
brains along with their bod-
It was once thought that brain
cells do not regenerate as do

other cells of the body, but
more modem science proved
that neurons do continue to
form in the brain, even into
old age.
Memory does begin a de-
cline when we reach our
40's, but the progression is
not as steep as people make
of it. Indeed, forgetfulness
may be due less to brain cell
loss than other influences,
such as taking care of the
kids, the job, paying the bills,
doing chores, everyday liv-
ing all competing for cogni-
tive time.
To keep your brain young
you need to give it lots of
varied stimulation and chal-
lenges. Like a muscle, it
needs to be exercised, to
"strain the brain," so to
speak. Repeating the same
mental functions over and
over, such as playing cards or
watching television, doesn't
help slow cognitive deterio-
ration. Mental stimulation is
as important for your brain
as physical exercise is for
your body.
Nutrition for a
Healthy Brain
Foods that contain anti-
oxidants, which neutralize
harmful free radicals, are es-
pecially good for your brain.
Free radicals break down the
neurons in your brain, so the
many colorful fruits and veg-
etables that are packed with

antioxidants are good for
you in more ways than one.
Too much alcohol has been
linked to brain atrophy, be-
cause it can cause direct in-
jury to the cells. The good
news is that these cells can
be rebuilt when people elim-
inate alcohol from the diet.
Scientists have shown that
certain nutrients are essential
for human brain function.
Serious deficiencies in vi-
tamin B12 and iron, for ex-
ample, can lead to impaired
cognition. Paying careful at-
tention to diet helps protect
the brain from developing
problems with nerve cell
signals that are involved in
memory and cognition.
Food with high oxygen
radical absorbance capacity
(ORAC) scores are thought
to help improve brain func-
tion. An ORAC score of
around 5,000 units per day
can have a significant effect
on blood and tissue antioxi-
dant levels.
The following fruits have the
highest ORAC scores (num-
bers are based on
1/2 cup of each):

Heights Roll Pass

"Shark Week" With Ease!
By: Orlando Greenwald

Week two of the regular sea-
son seemed more like a pre-
season game for the Mighty
"OH" was able to dominate
the game from the beginning
with no problems at all. Start-
ing the game off with their
running attack, they were
able to score an early touch-
down and set the tone for the
remainder of the game.
For the second week in
a row, David Tanis had a
strong showing and was able
to find the end-zone twice.
That's four touchdown runs
in two weeks.
This sophomore running
back is really turning out to
be a special part of the
running attack. Overall it -
was a combined team effort
that secured the 56 to 0 win
over what seemed to be fish,
not "sharks". Ralph Dor-
mestoir, Dimas, Serrano, Ta-
von Jenkins, and Casey Ki-
nard all scored a touchdown
on offense. Over 250 yards
of rushing and another 150
in the air allowed the Lions
to walk all over the Sharks
Defense. Of course in order
to get a shout out, the de-
fense needs to play on their A
game. They came out strong,
fast and protected their goal
with heart. Another strong
victory for the Lions as they
move to 2-0 for the season.
Next week is a bye week,
followed by district rivals
Hallandale the 24th of this
month! Go LIONS!

Friday night the Boca Raton

Bobcats win 23-10
Friday night the Boca
Raton Bobcats win 23-
10. While being down by
ten points early to Palm
Beach Lakes the Bobcats
capitalized on two special
teams plays in order to get
back in the game. Forc-
ing two fumbles on the
kickoff returns. The of-
fense struggled somewhat
but was able to move the
ball, only to have two field
goals missed. The defense
locked in early through the
second quarter and did not
give up until the end of the
game. So the first home
game for the Bobcats goes
in as a win, with hopefully
more to come.

Dolphins Bills Thoughts

By: ( in,,, Nelson mance in the preseason, the
Miami Dolphins showed
After an uninspiring perfor- surprising improvement in

their 2010 regular season
opener against the Buffalo
Bills on Sunday.

While they obviously were
not playing the toughest
opponent, performances
by the offensive line, pass
rush, and secondary were
quite encouraging.
After getting on the board
first with a Dan Carpenter
field goal, the Dolphins
added seven points on a
Ronnie Brown rushing
touchdown late in the sec-
ond quarter. Bills' kicker
Rian Lindell scored the
Bills' first points with a 51-
yard field goal four min-
utes before the half.
Following a scoreless third
period, blown coverage
by the Dolphins' second-
ary allowed Trent Edwards
to find Roscoe Parrish for
a 31-yard touchdown on
fourth and 11.
Down 13-10 late in the
game, the Bills were
pinned back at their own
one-yard line after a great
punt by the Dolphins'
Brandon Fields. After
three incompletions, the
Bills opted for a safety
rather than attempting the
fourth-down conversion.
With the 15-10 victory, the
Dolphins earned their first
win of the 2010 season and
moved into a first-place
tie in the AFC East with
the New England Patriots
at 1-0. Buffalo fell to 0-1,
while the Jets play Mon-
day night against the Ra-
The Dolphins will head up
to Minnesota to face Brett
Favre and the Vikings in
Week Two, but here are
my observations from the
Dolphins' Week One vic-
tory over the Bills.
* Chad Henne didn't light
the world on fire, but over-
all I was happy with his

performance. He com-
pleted most of the high-
percentage passes and did
a good job not turning the
ball over, especially a few
times when he was pres-
* Ronnie Brown and Ricky
Williams both ran hard,
combining for 127 yards
and a touchdown on the
ground. Splitting time
clearly saves each from
wearing down as much
during the game, and it
came in handy when the
Dolphins needed to control
the clock and secure a vic-
* Brandon Marshall dis-
played good receiving
ability overall and did well
running after the catch. He
also had a crushing block

on Donte Whitner, which
is exactly what makes him
the complete package at
receiver. He had a few
drops, including one on
an under-thrown bomb by
Henne. I'm not concerned
about the drops right now
and I think the connection
between Henne and Mar-
shall will get better as they
play together.
* Jake Long handled the
Bills' pass rush pretty eas-
ily and showed no ill ef-
fects from the tweaked
knee he suffered in the
preseason finale. Vernon
Carey played well enough,
but was beaten badly on
one play and would have
contributed to a turnover if
Henne hadn't miraculous-
ly held onto the ball.

Get The Call Right: Why MLB Should Expand Instant Replay

I strongly believe, either
needs to have a more effective
umpire accountability system
or they need to implement in-
stant replay not just for home
runs but for additional calls as
The umpires should be able
to use their transgression and
best judgement. Also manag-
ers should be allowed to ask
for a replay if they deem it
Don't get me wrong I am not
advocating the expanded use
of replay to challenge balls
and strikes. I am not that crazy
or demented!
However, baseball can do a lot
more with the replay system.
Of course instant replay must
be managed and used respon-
Instant Replay has worked
very successfully in the NFL.
Also instant replay has been

used by the NHL and they
have had no issues with it
For example, in game 3 of
the Stanley Cup Finals, the
league's video review sys-
tem was used twice and both
times they ended up getting
the call correct. So therefore,
why can't it work effectively
in professional baseball?
I understand the fact that the
baseball purists and tradition-
alists will vehemently dis-
agree with me on this issue.
However, they need to under-
stand the benefits of imple-
menting a replay system.
I believe decisions could be
resolved definitively and ac-
curately without causing
much of a delay. Baseball has
the capability to make it work.
I am willing to give Major
League Baseball some props
and credit for deciding to re-
view home run calls. This is

a very good step in the right
direction. However, there is a
lot more that needs to be done.
At the end of the day, it is
about getting the call right!
There needs to be more of a
commitment to achieving this
Major League baseball needs
to stop living in the past. Its
time for the game to finally
embrace technology.

PlumM ad whimu!

By Matt Blue

What exactly has gone wrong
with the umpiring this year in
Major League Baseball? As
of this season, the fans have
witnessed, Tigers pitcher Ar-
mando Gallaraga lose a per-
fect game with two outs in the
bottom of the ninth.
Replays later revealed very
conclusive evidence that the
player was out at first.
Jim Joyce inexplicably blew
an easy call at first base.
In addition, more controversy
emerged after third base um-
pire Bob Davidson cost the
Florida Marlins a walk off win
against the Philadelphia Phil-
Replay footage immediately
showed that the ball was clear-
ly in fair territory the entire
Astoundingly, missed an easy
play that occurred right in front
of him. Therefore, he had a
very easy call to make. Gaby
Sanchez was robbed of a game
winning hit and the Marlins
had a walk off win taken away

from them.
As a result, Jim Joyce is now
emblematic of umpire incom-
petence. If baseball currently
had instant replay in effect,
Jim Joyce would have been
taken off the hook. Instead,
every blown call will forever
be referred to as a Jim Joyce.
Unfortunately, this incident
will be Jim Joyce's defin-
ing legacy. He will forever
be known as the umpire who
took away perfection and his-
On the other hand, Bob Da-
vidson ended up looking like
an egotistical maniac after
refusing to apologize for his
obvious mistake. This type of
inexcusable arrogance should
be made an example of and
it should shed some light on
the importance of personal
responsibility and account-
This is a teachable moment
and an important life lesson
for everyone. When you know
you are wrong, you must have
the courage to admit your mis-

In comparison, Jim Joyce had
the class and integrity to apol-
ogize publicly and personally
to Armando Gallaraga.
I would like to introduce some
convincing logic and reason-
ing as to why baseball needs
to expand instant replay.
The bottom-line is we have
the technology available to get
the call right. The players want
it. The fans want it. Therefore,
why can't it be implemented

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

By Pedro Heizer

Word of advice,

don't mess with Riley

Since his much-celebrat-
ed, free agent signing this
summer, Pat Riley hasn't
been talking too much
this summer, instead, he's
been listening quietly to
some criticism of his play-
ers and his franchise.
Now, after hearing all the
haters speak, he is talking,
lashing back, and laying
the groundwork for the
mentality his team will
need to win a champion-
ship this season.
Riley started by calling out
television analyst Charles
Barkley for his a-little-

too-personal criticism of
LeBron James. Riley then
took exception to remarks
from Magic general man-
ager Otis Smith and Mag-
ic coach Stan Van Gundy.
He also made it very clear
what he thought about any
other haters of his roster:
"They can sit on it."
"I take a little umbrage
to some of the things that
came from people in our
game who, all of a sud-
den, have become the
moral conscious or moral
authority on the decision
of every team or some
individual might make,"
Riley said Friday during

a conference call with
South Florida writers. "I
know one thing: Our team
will be ready. And I think
that's the way we can an-
swer all the critics."
Barkley was the one who
started it all earlier this
summer by being open-
ly critical of the way
James handled his free
agency, along with the
celebratory press confer-
ence with Chris Bosh and
Dwyane Wade, who also
signed with the Heat the
same day. Barkley called
the celebration: "Punk
It was his long time bench

coach and former Miami
HEAT head coach, Stan
Van Gundy who referred
to Bosh as Wade's "lap-
dog," for the way he fol-
lowed him through the
free agent process. And
it was Smith, Orlando's
General Manager, who
said he thought LeBron
James was more of a com-
petitor after he left Cleve-

land to play in Miami.
"Charles Barkley, to me,
went way, way, way over
the top taking these per-
sonal attacks. Calling
these guys a bunch of
punks is a personal at-
tack," Riley said. "For
him to say that is wrong."
"I thought that (what
Smith said) was an abso-
lutely stupid remark. He

never made any kind of
comment like that when
he signed Rashard Lewis
and brought him from Se-
attle (in 2007) with a $128
million contract," Riley
Even though Barkley, Van
Gundy and Smith were
mentioned by Riley, their
comments were indica-
tive of the criticism from
around the league, much
of it stemming from Ri-
ley's unprecedented suc-
cess in the free agent mar-
Riley already had prov-
en himself as one of the
league's all-time great
coaches, and now had
proven himself to be one
of the league's all-time
greatest executives.
