By PaulPaquet
The Big Bopper's biggest hit was "Chantilly Lace,"
about a girl with "a wiggle in the walk and a giggle in
the talk." Chantilly is an actual silk, named for a city in
northern France. Chantilly, Va., is also named for that
city, and is found near Washington. When they built an
airport there, somebody decided that the Big Bopper
had somehow sullied the name of Chantilly, so it was
instead named for John Foster Dulles.

Boca's new paid parking

system due by year's

end, officials
city's paid parking system
should be in place by the
end of the year, according
to local officials.
Earlier this year, the City
Council approved the cre-
ation of nearly 400 paid
parking spaces in areas
such as Mizner Park, Pal-
metto Park Road near the
beach and the city parking
lot at the comer of North
Federal Highway and NE
Second Street.
The system will not be
made up of individual me-
ters, but rather, a series
of numbered spaces and
centralized payment sta-
tions. Motorists can pay to
park for varying lengths of
time in various parts of the
Council members OKed
the plan by a 4-1 vote (with
Councilman Anthony Ma-
jhess casting the sole "nay"
vote) as a means of raising
additional revenue at a
time when the city budget
is tight. Officials figure to
raise between $600,000 to
$700,000 a year by charg-
ing for parking.
The city will spend about
$339,659 to buy and install
the timing devices.
Meters were to be installed
by October, but it is more
likely they will arrive by
the end of the year, Trans-
portation Analyst John
Reilly told the Boca Raton
In all, 387 parking spaces
will be created: 165 4-hour
meters in Mizner Park; 59

4-hour meters on Pal-
metto Park Road be-
tween the Intracoastal
Waterway and State
Road A1A; 18 one-hour
spaces in the South
Beach Pavilion east of
AIA; 32 4-hour me-
ters on Spanish River
Boulevard between the
Intracoastal and AIA; 93
4-hour spaces in Red Reef
Park west of AIA and 20
8-hour spaces in the city
parking lot at Federal and
NE Second Street.
The price for parking will
* In Mizner Park, $1 an
hour from 7 a.m. to 4:59
p.m. and $2 an hour from
5 to 6:59 p.m.
* NE 1st Avenue parking

$2 an hour from open to

$1.50 an hour from open
to close
* Spanish River Boule-
vard, $1.50 an hour for all

The city will hire addi-
tional employees to run the
parking meter program.
Two full-time workers will
be hired for customer ser-
vice and coordination of
the program. Six or seven
part-time employees will
be hired for enforcement.

The Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL

BOCA RATON Local se-
niors and members of the
Florida Alliance for Re-
tired Americans rallied
Sept. 16 to show their
support for U.S. Rep. Ron
Klein (D-District 22) at the
Dayscape Senior Center in
Coconut Creek.
The alliance represents
more than 200,000 retirees
and older Americans.
"We have endorsed Con-
gressman Klein because of
his track record of preser-
ving and protecting Social
Security and Medicare,"
Florida Alliance for Reti-
red Americans president
Tony Fransetta said. "His
opponent has radical ideas
that are not in the best in-
terests of the seniors that
we represent. "
"I am honored to have
earned the endorsement
of the Florida Alliance of
Retired Americans," said
Klein, "and I am proud to
represent 130,000 seniors
here in South Florida. I am
committed to fighting for
our seniors every day."
Klein said he strongly op-
poses privatizing Social
Security and Medicare.
"I will not allow these pro-
grams to be jeopardized
or destroyed," Klein said.
"Our seniors have paid in-
to these programs with a
lifetime of hard work, and
we have to keep our end
of the deal. Especially in
these challenging times,
when seniors rely on their
monthly Social Security
check or the right to see
a doctor of their choice,
we need to do whatever it
takes to protect them."
Klein vowed when he first
ran for Congress in 2006
that he would close the

Medicare Part D dough-
nut hole and work to lower
prescription drug costs. He
said he kept that promise,
working with AARP to
close the doughnut hole
for good and provide se-
niors with $250 rebate
checks to help with the
cost of medicine.
Elders and alliance mem-
bers said Klein's leader-
ship on key senior issues
inspired him to craft the
common-sense Seniors' Bill
of Rights, which is built
around three principles: the
right of seniors to financial
security, which requires
new measures to protect
against scam artists and
criminals preying on se-
niors; the right of seniors
to stability, which requires
fighting to protect Medi-
care and Social Security;
and the right of seniors to
safety in their homes and
communities, which in-
cludes access to transpor-

station and safe, reputable
nursing homes and day-
care centers.
"We need Congressman
Klein's continued leader-
ship to ensure our senior
population can have a dig-
nified retirement," Day-
scape Senior Center di-
rector Susan Eichler said.
"Congressman Klein's
commitment to fighting for
seniors on everything from
strengthening Medicare,
Social Security to improv-
ing transportation for our
local seniors demonstrate
why we need him repre-
senting us."

Budget cuts are taking away some of

Boca's little goodies

You'll pardon me if I feel a
little sad today.
I'm sitting at my desk
looking at The Recreator
magazine for September-
December 2010. Like
many people, I subscribe
to it to keep abreast of
what's being offered in
Boca in the way of special
events and activities at lo-
cal playgrounds. This issue
also has a rundown of holi-
day activities.
Across the front is a big
box with the words: final
mailing of Recreator, and
it urges the reader to see
page 3.
Well, page 3 says that all
future issues of The Recre-
ator will only be available
at Recreation Services fa-
cilities, City Hall and on-
This is not the result of
high technology. It's the
result of budget cuts.
I've sat through a lot of
budget meetings in my
time. But during the past
few years, the Boca meet-
ings have been on the mo-
rose side. They're packed
with financial cutbacks.
The reductions have been

bad since state legislation
mandated lower levels of
spending. Remember how
the city lost about 100 va-
cant positions and 40-some
people to cost reductions
the first year?
This past Monday night,
the council adopted the
budget for fiscal 2010-
2011. Again, some people
have lost their jobs, the
teen center is closed and
service hours have been
cut at various city facili-
The Recreator I'm holding
in my hands is the last one
that will be mailed out to
subscribers. I know I can
go online and read it, but it
just seems so much more
convenient to keep a copy
where I can grab it.
This edition even caught
my wife's eye. I saw her
poring over it looking for
programs we might be in-
terested in attending.
Just for your information,
these are some of the cut-
backs going into effect in
the new budget year:
* Delaying vehicle and
equipment purchases.
* Reducing hours that both

city libraries will be open.
* Reducing hours that ten-
nis centers will be open.
* Closing Spanish River
Park on Tuesdays, Wednes-
days and Thursdays.
* Reducing the use of secu-
rity guards.
And discontinuing the hard
copy of The Recreator.
City Manager Leif Ahn-
ell has said that residents
will see the city make "a
significant realignment
of resources" this coming
year. Among these is tak-
ing over operation of the
Mizner Park Amphithe-
ater from the Centre for
the Arts, which apparently
is now defunct. And Boca
also has to set up a park-
ing administration to deal
with the new paid parking
plan that goes into effect
That doesn't mean Boca is
just sitting back and taking
it. Economic development
is still on the front burner.
I'm going to miss not find-
ing The Recreator in my
mailbox four times a year.
And I'm sure other people
are going to miss some of
the niceties that will be

passing into history.

By Douglas Heizer
Season is coming fast, and so is the

weekly edition of Boca Raton Tribune

It always gives me a good
feeling to deliver good
news. So, I feel very good

It's time to announce that
the Boca Raton Tribune is
about to become a weekly

It's hard to believe it's
been more than seven
months since we began
delivering the new from
East and West Boca to ev-
eryone in the community.
And a month before that,
we were setting everything
up on our website.

We hope you're looking
at both. The paper looks
beautiful, and it has grown
to 40 pages from the 24
we first started to publish
back in February. The
number of color pages has
increased, and we have
continued to stick to our
promise of bringing you
many, many pictures of
community events.

The response has been
wonderful. Every day, we
get calls about how much
people enjoy reading the
Tribune. And we're just
getting started.

Our staff is out there, find-
ing news, shooting photos
and bringing them to you
in print and online. We
will keep going as season
comes along.

Get out your tuxedos and
evening gowns. It's that
time of year again.

Pizzafor a cause

Tomasso's Pizza has "gone
pink," and that doesn't
mean they're using vodka
sauce on the hot pies.

The popular local pizza
spot is helping Boca Raton
Regional Hospital with a
raffle for a year's supply
of pizza, an Italian dinner
for 10 or an office party for
10 people. Proceeds from
the raffle will Go Pink
Challenge, which supports
the Women's Health and
Wellness Center for Breast
Cancer Care at the hospi-

Every entrant is a win-
ner. All who buy a ticket
will get a certificate for a
free two-topping pizza at
Tomasso's and a gift back
from Boca Raton Regional

Buy your tickets at Tomas-
so's at 1229 West Palmetto
Park Road. Only 150 tick-
ets will be sold.

Come by Oct. 1 from 6 to
7 to enjoy refreshments
and preparing for the 7
p.m. drawing of the win-
ning ticket.

Helping Tri County

Speaking of season, Hal-
loween is coming soon.
And to mark the occasion,
the Tri County Humane
Society will hold a Pi\\ s
for Halloween" cocktail
party Tuesday, October
19th from 6 to 8 p.m. at
Villagio Restaurant at
Mizner Park, 344 Plaza
Real, on the outdoor patio.

Dogs 50 pounds and under
on a leash or in a stroller
are welcome. Dress up
your pet for Halloween.
Prizes will be awarded.

Cost is $10 for members,
$20 guests, and $35 to join
and attend. Admission
includes one cocktail and
light appetizers.

See you next week!


By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Shaping the future today!

God wants us to recognize
the importance of tomor-
row by giving us today,
each day! He desires that
we plan our future because
we have to live there. And
the way one plans for the
future is tied up to how
one manages the present.
C.S. Lewis rightfully ob-
served that "the present is
the only time in which any
duty can be done or any
grace received."
Wise men of the past
warned that one should
not worry about tomor-
row. They were equally
emphatic in their chal-
lenges regarding making
plans, following guide-
lines, understanding the
times, so as to face intel-
ligently and courageously
each new surprise that
comes, good or bad, as
we embark into the future

which is being shaped.
As a modem poet ex-
presses it, "we build a
new tomorrow on plans
we make today!" Each
new day reaches its end,
but it also merges into a
new tomorrow with all the
opportunities it brings.
In the words of Loren
B. Mead, "God always
calls us to be more than
we have been!" We can-
not stop the clock, much
less can we return to the
good ol' days. The move-
ment which God desires
for each of His children
is always in a forward
direction, with the future
clearly in mind!
David Livingstone, in the
19th century, recorded in
his journals something I
have adopted as a person-
al motto: "I am prepared
to go anywhere, as long as

it is forward."
A commitment to the
future is important be-
cause it is there and then
that one's goals are real-
ized, one's projects reach
completion, even if inad-
equately, because of being
tinged by human frailties.
Moving towards the fu-
ture is inescapable, re-
gardless of how difficult
the journey. Hopefully
you've learned how to
hold on to what shall last
and discard all that is pro-
visional. This is a pos-
ture of genuine wisdom
which, by its very nature,
requires taking risks.
On earth we are confront-
ed with too many tempo-
ral realities. We need to
hold on to what lasts and
gradually leads into the
future, there to remain
with us beyond time.

Dr Synesio Lyra, Jr is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level.

for 2010-2011; economic development

By Dale M. King

BOCARATON Set against
a backdrop of job losses,
home foreclosures and
"people that are hurting,"
the Boca Raton City Coun-
cil Monday night slashed
about $5 million to keep
the tax rate for fiscal 2010-
2011 at virtually the same
level as the current year.
The last-minute effort to
mollify what residents said
would be a 10 percent hike
in the rate removed much
of the funding that was set
aside for economic deve-
lopment and also sharply
reduced capital for pro-
grams at the Mizner Park
Amphitheatre, which the
city just took over from the
now-defunct Centre for the
At the end of a nearly 90
minute budget hearing,
council members voted
unanimously to adopt a
small increase in the city's
property tax rate from
$3.34 to $3.40 per $1,000
of assessed property value
- rather than an increase to
$3.69 per $1,000 as initial-
ly proposed.
Much of the higher pro-
perty tax would have gone
to such new programs as
financial incentives to bu-
sinesses relocating to or
expanding in the city ($4
million) and downtown e-
vents and running the am-
phitheater ($1.9 million).
In the end, city officials
decided to cut most of that
proposed new spending. The
city won't set up an econom-
ic development fund. And it
will spend only $227,400
on downtown events and
$759,400 on the amphithe-

funds slashed
That doesn't mean the city
is giving up on economic
development. Several coun-
cil members said the city
has a healthy reserve fund
and could dip into that if a
good deal comes along.
Councilwoman Constance
Scott cited the need for
business incentives. "It was
incentives that drew IBM
to Austin, Texas; that drew
Mercedes to Alabama;
that drew Max Planck to
Jupiter. We have to fight
for our city's desirability."
She also cited the need to
buttress small businesses,
which are major job cre-
Councilman Mike Mul-
laugh said that if a com-
pany is angling to come
into Boca, "we will find
the money" to offer incen-
The vote came after a
half-dozen residents came
to the podium, painting a
grim picture of Boca's fi-
nancial situation. Several
slammed the proposed new
downtown library, saying
it was either unnecessary
or would quickly become
obsolete in a high-tech en-
But Mayor Susan Whelchel
noted that the city is sim-
ply carrying out the desire
of a majority of residents
who approved construc-
tion of two new libraries in
a 2003 bond referendum.
City Manager Leif Ahnell
also said the money for
the new library has been
obtained and is "in city
coffers." An architect has
been hired, he said, and a
site has been approved.
It was a motion by Whelchel

that began the process of
resetting the tax rate at the
2009-2010 level. Deputy
Mayor Susan Haynie se-
conded it.
"This is a difficult time for
residents," Haynie said. "I
will support this."
"I'm happy we can reduce
the tax rate," said Coun-
cilman Anthony Majhess,
who cited "four or five
foreclosures on my block. I
have seen too many people
moving out of Boca Ra-
He did agree that money
is available in the reserve
fund to provide incentives
to businesses interested in
locating in Boca.
Whelchel noted that eco-
nomic development was a
major plank in her inaugural
address nearly three years
ago. Because of efforts to
keep the economy stable,
she said, 296 new jobs ha-
ve been created in Boca
Raton and 952 have been
In the end, the council's
decisions cut spending on
new programs to $986,800
from almost $6 million.
As part of other cutbacks
in the budget for the fiscal
year that begins Oct. 1, 17
full-time employees were
laid off. The city plans to
eliminate pay raises, close
the teen center, reduce
tennis center hours, close
Spanish River Park three
days a week and reduce li-
brary hours.
The council did increase
some sources of revenue
by raising the trash fee and
fire assessment fee and de-
ciding to bring in red-light
cameras and parking me-

parts of Port-au-Prince,

two university professors
and four students.

at FAU seeking passage

Atlantic University's Mus-
lim and Jewish student
leaders teamed up Sept. 13
to help spread understand-
ing and respect for each
other's religions and holy
texts. They joined reli-
gious leaders and individu-
als from the community to
read and discuss passages
from both The Old Testa-
ment and The Qur'an.
The discussion was held
inside the Jewish Life Cen-
ter at FAU's Boca Raton
campus. It was sponsored
by the FAU Muslim Stu-
dent Organization and the
Jewish Student Union in
conjunction with Hillel of
Broward and Palm Beach.
The event was envisioned
by the organizers as FAU's
response to recent inflam-
matory statements made
by Pastor Terry Jones of
Dove World Church in
Gainesville. The pastor
had threatened to bum

Qur'ans on September 11.
"Those who bum books
ultimately can bum bod-
ies," said, Rabbi David
Steinhardt of B'nai Torah
Congregation in Boca Ra-
ton, quoting Jewish poet
Heinrich Heine.
"The threat to bum the
Qur'an is an insult to hu-
manity. It's an insult to
every single person who
believes in the dignity of
the human being and the
capacity of the human
mind. I stand with my Is-
lamic brothers and sisters
in my repudiation of that
and how despicable it is,"
Rabbi Steinhardt said.
The rabbi and Sheikh
Musab Abdul-Hakeem of
Nur UI Islam Academy
took turns sharing their
perspectives and answer-
ing questions.
Reading from the story
of Abraham and Isaac
from the book of Genesis,
Rabbi Steinhardt offered
a modem interpretation
that placed the story in its
historical context. "The

he said.
"We Christians, Jews,

ability to change the past.
We have to take our reli-
gious traditions and allow
them to speak to a differ-

as brothers, not going to

Sheikh Abdul-Hakeem
spoke of the similarities
between religions.
"As Muslims, we cannot
consider ourselves believ-
ers unless we believe in
previous books, meaning
the books of the prophets
Moses, David and Jesus,"
he said.

Edgewater Pointe seniors provide pathway

to knowledge for student servers

BOCA RATON Ten resi-
dents at Edgewater Pointe
Estates/ACTS Retirement-
Life Community in Boca
Raton are so committed
to the students who serve
them each evening in the
dining room, that they
have collected more than
$16,000 to fund a scholar-
ship program for student
servers heading into local
trade and technical two
year educational programs.
Herb and Gladys Jacob-
son along with Dr. Shel-
don and Nancy Taubman
spearheaded the project in
January of this year. The
brick Pathway to Knowl-
edge, located in the heart
of the retirement commu-
nity, was recently dedicat-
ed during a special ribbon
cutting ceremony.
"The project never would
have gotten off the ground
without the hard work and
wisdom of our finance and
rules committee members
William Alden, Janice
Lannert, Elizabeth Taylor,
Francis Hughes, Joan Liv-
ingston, Chris Rosenbaum,
Dr. and Nancy Taubman
and my wife Gladys," said

Guests of honor included
Mr. and Mrs. David Welch
who donated several bricks
in thanksgiving and re-
membrance of their mom

followed suit, and resi-
dents have begun to donate
to the fund in lieu of giv-
ing gifts to one another for
special occasions and in
memory of loved ones.

ers, ages 16-21 who work the 4 to 7 pm dinner shift, de-
velop a special bond with the retirees. Often, residents,
who range from inventors to CEOs to some who even sky
dive at age 80, share business insight with these aspiring
entrepreneurs between appetizers and dessert.
The first scholarship is slated to be awarded this winter.
"The hope is many more servers will receive the benefit
for many years to come," said Gladys Jacobson.
Edgewater Pointe Estates is a faith-based, not-for-profit,
fully accredited retirement community, primarily offering
independent residences for seniors 62 and above. Guar-
anteed access to assisted living and skilled care through

Josh Steinfeld, 25, was

Steinfeld wanted to un-

tradition of Islam and spe-
cifically, why the Qur'an's

differs from the Torah's.
Jed Khazem, 16, discussed
passion in Islam and how
that passion can be mis-
construed and used as
passion of terror and hate.
"We should focus on the
core element of passion
and how it should be used
in a setting of love and un-
derstanding," he said.

part in the discussion. Joe

During the Q&A session,
two men, one a Jew and
one Muslim, challenged
Rabbi Steinhardt and
Sheik Abdul-Hakeem to
acknowledge the violence
in their religions. Both
men also agreed that re-
ligion should move away
from the literal interpre-
tation of holy texts as the
words of God.
Lauren Heyman and Mona
Hassan, presidents of the
Jewish Student Union and
the Muslim Student Or-
ganization respectively,
organized the event. They
stayed after to answer
questions from both re-
porters and other students.
Scott Brockman, execu-
tive director of Hillel, ap-
proached the two women
with the idea for the event
as they shared neighboring
booths at a club fair two
weeks earlier.
"More conversations like
this need to take place, and
need to be presented in the
media, and people need to
see people talking to each
other as opposed to yelling
across the street from each
other," Brockman said.
He encouraged the people
gathered to continue hav-
ing interfaith dialogues.
"The students here, the
power that you have is un-
realized, the power that
you have sitting here and
what you can do together
and what you can do for the
community, there is unlim-
ited potential, and you don't
realize how much you can
change the world. Hopeful-
ly this is the first step."

Hurricanes have become
second nature to Florida,
just like earthquakes have
to California and tornados
to Middle America. But
how much do we really
know about these beastly
natural disasters?
You sit down to watch
the news and the meteo-
rologist says there's ano-
ther hurricane coming. It's
heading due West and the
winds are picking up; all
good things to know. But
in that minute forecast,
they have left you ques-
tioning... What? Where?
When? How? Why?
If you ask someone where
hurricanes come from,
the most common an-
swers you will probably
receive are (1) Africa, (2)
the Sahara Desert, or (3)
the ocean near Africa. All
these are typical miscon-
The Africans aren't stan-
ding on the border of the
Atlantic blowing hurrica-
nes in our direction. It's
a funny visual, but
that's not the case.
Hurricanes actu-
ally don't come from
Africa; but they do
develop in certain lo-
cations during the sea-
son. Though there's 7
nothing concrete to I
say that they're from I
the world's second
largest continent.

Hurricanes have become second

nature to Florida

It actually takes a lot for a
hurricane to form. In rea-
lity, it needs just the right
number of elements at the
right time and place. The
ocean has to be more than
80 degrees Fahrenheit; this
is warm enough to allow
the water to evaporate into
the air, creating humid air
and clouds.
Although the Sahara Desert
doesn't create hurricanes, it
still plays a role in formula-
ting them. The temperatures
of western North Africa
get so hot that the air over
this area rises and creates
the Africa easterly jet.
When these great swirling
winds of the Sahara come
in contact with the warm
waters of the ocean, they
start rotating around the
center area of the low pres-
sure over the ocean.
The exchange of warm and
cold air through the lower
and upper atmospheres in
the Atlantic starts to circu-
late and create a funnel
in the center of the storm

which is later called the
eye of the hurricane.
Because the Earth is
constantly spinning, it
makes winds in the north-
ern hemisphere spin clock-
wise while making winds
in the southern hemisphere
spin counterclockwise.
This is called the Coriolis
Effect which helps rotate
the winds of the storm.
With the elements of the
warm ocean waters and
the spin of the Earth com-
bined with the dry desert
winds and the warm moist
Atlantic air; a hurricane
is formed. As long as the
hurricane remains over 80
degree or warmer water, it
will continue to pull mois-
ture from the ocean's sur-
face, enlarging in size and
gaining force.


/ S -aow.

Hurricanes do not occur 300
miles from the equator due
to the Coriolis Effect.

Heller sculpts monument to Count and

Countess de Hoernle

By Donovan Ortega

World-renowned sculptor
Yaacov Heller has been
commissioned to create a
monument to commemo-
rate the superior philan-
thropic efforts of Boca Ra-
ton's most beloved couple,
Count and Countess de
"If anyone deserves a mo-
nument, it's Count and
Countess de Hoemle," said
Yaacov Heller while walk-
ing through Gallery 22, his
fine art shop in Royal Palm
Place. "Together, the two
of them have really made
a positive impact on this
world, especially here in
Boca Raton."
Along with her late husband,
Countess de Hoemle's name
adorns over forty buildings
in Palm Beach County. Her
charitable contributions are
immense, ranging a large
gamut of interests, from
hospitals to the arts. It's one
of the reasons that Heller is
ecstatic about sculpting the
couple's likeness in bronze.
"They were building
homes in Haiti long before
it was fashionable," said
Heller, who won't even
speculate on how many
sculptures he's been com-
missioned to craft.
Heller's career has been
long and successful, creat-
ing pieces that have been

given to various American
presidents and heads of
state that include Gerald
Ford, Ronald Reagan, and
Bill Clinton. But he seems
to be taking a certain plea-
sure in this creation be-
cause of the friendship he
has forged with the Count-
ess. They met after he had
created Flossy's Fountain,
a commissioned piece
for Florence Keesely that
stands in Mizner Park.
"The Countess really

loved that fountain, I can
remember her telling me
how beautiful she thought
it was," remembered a sat-
isfied Heller.
Countess de Hoemle en-
joyed the piece so much
that she has since gone to
Heller to create various
pieces. One poignant ex-
ample is a necklace that
Heller made for Countess
de Hoemle after her hus-
band's death. In this piece,
the Countess compiled all

of the Count's cufflinks,
studs, pins, and rings and
Heller made an impressive
necklace dripping of pre-
cious stones.
"The Countess has been
very hands on in the pro-
cess of creating the statue,"
said Heller while standing
next to the large clay mold
in Gallery 22.
The mold has yet to be
bronzed, but even in its
incomplete form the sculp-
ture is impressive. It is
over 9 feet high and fea-
tures the Countess and
Count de Hoemle standing
arm in arm while wearing
their ceremonial medals
and the countess' signa-
ture tiara. Together, they
stare steadfastly into the
"The Countess loves the
sculpture. She was here to
look at it just a few weeks
ago," said Heller, "But just
this morning she called
me and expressed some
concern that the back of
the Count's jacket was too
wrinkled. She said that the
Count's clothes were al-
ways neatly pressed."
Heller said that after the
second mold was made,
everything could be
"It will be like we sent the
jacket to the cleaners,"
joked Heller.

Heller sculpts monument ... Continuedfrom page 14
While that problem can be solved easily, what has become more troublesome is where
the statue will eventually be placed. Its original home was to be at the Count de Hoernle
Amphitheatre in Mizer Park. But since the City of Boca Raton has had to take over
the operations of the facility, the final resting place of the statue has been questioned.
"Part of my responsibility is placing the statue," said Heller. "I'm going to do every-
thing within my power to get it at the amphitheatre. It's her statue, she should have it
wherever she wants."

For our dear friend, Countess

Henrietta de Hoernle

We wish you a very happy
98th birthday!
You have given so very
much to our community!
As we look around Boca

You have enriched the lives
of so many seeking help!
You do all of this with a

smile and you do not lose

or expression and reveals
what lies in your heart.
We recall the time we cel-
ebrated your birthday and
you requested ribs.
You just wanted this day to
be simple and quiet!
The three of us had a great
time and you looked relaxed
with balloons flying at our
table. People approached

you thanking you for your
most wonderful generosity
to our community.
Memories of YMCA parties
for you on many birthday
Children singing, laughing
and asking you all kinds of
These are special memo-
ries! You are leaving a re-
markable legacy!

Global beauty guru Nicky Kinnard has tips on

solving skin problems

Beauty problem? Chances
are Nicky Kinnard will
know how to solve it! The
Belfast-born cosmetic
queen is internationally re-
nowned for her Space NK
stores, and this past month
she opened her boutique
inside Bloomingdales,
Based upon the tradition-
al European apothecary,
Space NK provides highly
trained experts who assess
your skin and cosmetic
needs and offer the best
products across a plethora
of lines some very famil-
iar names and others rare
I chatted with the jetsetter
who is constantly in pur-
suit of the best in beauty to
learn more about her con-
cept and the smartest ways
to solve the most common
skin problems!
"At Space NK, I provide
educators who offer unbi-
ased opinions across multi-
ple brands and varied price
points," she explained. In-
deed that is true. And the
price points run the gamut
starting in the single dig-
its; however, many of the
choices are not necessarily
the cheapest, as she seeks
both value and effective-
ness for the money.

So, let's problem solve!

Ahhh, the sun: our biggest
beauty enemy. Living in
South Florida we need to
combat the dangerous ef-
fects every day. To help us,
Nicky recommends NIA

24, a complete line that of-
fers a cleaner, scrub, eye
cream, decolletage repair
and more. Based upon the
niacin molecule, this line
has won a myriad of sun
awards and according to
Nicky provides amazing
skin reparation. Look for
their product with licorice
root if you are seeking to
fade sun spots.
The weather will be chang-
ing soon...we hope! And
when it does shift from
very humid days to dryer
air, we will need to think
about how our skin is cop-
ing. Nicky loves P-Lipic
by Bakel, which helps
strengthen our skin mem-
branes with its antioxidant
rich formulas.
Tired eyes? Nicky swears
by the Zelens by renowned
plastic surgeon Dr. Marko
Lens. The Intensive Triple
Action Eye Cream has
a gel/balm texture and
promises to banish puffy
eyes and dark circles with
its mix of peptides and
antioxidants. Another eye
awakener? Touche Ve-
loutee by Terry Cosmetics.
Nicky told me it erases that
fatigued look and she pan-
ics if she is without it!
For makeup, Nicky sees
a trend toward sophisti-
cation. We chatted about
the influence the hit show,
Mad Men. is having on
both fashion and cosmet-
Channeling the late 50's
and early 60's, the red
lip is back in a big way.
"Gloss seems so old now,"

N IA24-

she said. "There are so
many fabulous reds. And
the emphasis is really on
the lips." So what of our
eyes? Nicky is stressing
the eyebrow, with defini-
tion being key. In addi-
tion, smoky eyes are still
in, but it's brown hues that
are doing the work, not the
charcoals. She also loves
a healthy flush of color on
the cheeks to complete the
Curious about what is re-
ally best for you and been
in a cosmetic rut too long?

and discover a world of
beautiful possibilities.

Boca community turns out in droves

to honor Countess on 98th birthday

I heard young children sing
"Happy Birthday" to Hen-
rietta Countess de Hoernle
twice on her 98th birthday
last week. There wasn't a dry
eye in the house on both oc-
First was a celebration tea for
the Countess hosted by one
of her favorite non-profits,
the Children's Museum Boca
Raton. It was a gathering of
200 close friends, adults and
children, enjoying afternoon
china tea under a dignified
tent. The pastoral scene re-
minded me of England ex-
cept there if it would have
been 50 degrees and raining.
On a sultry Florida afternoon

in Boca it was a humid 90
degrees and counting. Proud
museum director Poppi
Mercier welcomed guests
and thanked the Countess
for years of support. The
Countess made an emotional
speech with her signature
humorous en-ding, "Enjoy
the tea and the humidity,' she
Clustered under the canvas
were Boca Deputy Mayor
Susan Haynie County Com-
missioner Steven Abrams,
city events manager Em-
ily Lilly and Fire Chief Tom
Wood. The Countess's good
friends Flossy Keesely and

Rosemary and Ben Krieger
were there; all three enthu-
siastic ambassadors for this
newspaper as well as many
charities around town. Also
spotted, Unicorn Founda-
tion's Juliette Ezagui who
several days later hosted an
elegant tea at her home to
kick off Unicorn's fundrai-
sing season.
Highlight of the tea was
the unveiling of two bronze
busts by master sculptor Yac-
cov Heller, portraying the
Count and Countess de Ho-
ernle. Unveiling duties were
carried out by two small
children dressed in a formal

white party dress and minia-
ture white tux!
The busts will on exhibit at
the Children's Museum for
all to see. At the close of the
tea, the Countess was given a
rousing rendition of "Happy
Birthday" by 20 youngsters
who afterwards lined up
to give the Countess hand-
made birthday cards.
After the tea, it was time to
change and head over to the
March of Dimes Signature
Chefs and Wine Extrava-
ganza at the Boca Resort and
Club, where the coun-tess
was being honored. A huge
crowd of over 600 filled the
ballroom along with food
from 31 local restaurants and
an equally huge selection of
wines. Congratulations to
MOD Executive Director
Shanna St. John and Event
Chair Mitch Feldman, the
CEO of West Boca Medi-
cal Center. The event raised
a whopping $169,000. A

big thanks also to top event
sponsors Publix Super Mar-
kets, Akerman Senterfitt and
Total Wines.
Once again the guest list
was a Who's Who of Boca.
Gearing up for Breast Can-
cer Awareness Month was
Go Pink luncheon chair,
Patti Carpenter and Think
Pinks Rocks, PR
Liz Kelley Grace.
Palm Beach In-
temational Film
Festival president
Yvonne Boice was
there with hus-
band Al Zuccaro.
Haven supporters
Lynda Levitsky
and Elaine Rus-
sell took tables
along with Iron-
stone Bank's Lisa
The second "Happy Birth-
day" of the day was sung
by March of Dimes Ambas-
sadors, three-year-old-twin

brothers, Dylan and Jordan
Miller who were there with
parents Ari and Melissa. Their
rendition of Happy Birthday
was therefore especially poi-
gnant in view of the age dif-
ference! Like I said, not a dry
eye in the house.
And that is life in Boca...

Grand Lux Caf6 at Town Cen-
ter Mall (6000 Glades Road-
561-392-2141) in Boca Raton
offers global cuisine all week
from luncheon through the
late night hours.
From their spring/summer
menu, we sampled duck tri-
angles, fine crispy fried wrap-
pers filled with minced duck,
onions and garlic with ginger,
soy and sesame. The crab and
shrimp louie, with small tasty
bites of seafood, was a bit
overwhelmed by the shreds of
lettuce, tomato and egg. Ahi
tuna tostadas, raw ahi, mango,
spicy soy, onion and ginger
with cilantro and sesame was
a treat as was the tender cala-
mari with its warm marinara
For things to share, try the
double stuffed potato spring
rolls consisting of mashed
potatoes with green onion
in a crispy Asian wrapper
topped with melted cheddar,
applewood smoked bacon,
more green onions plus sour
cream. Asian nachos, the fried
wontons were covered with
chicken in a sweet-hot peanut
sauce. On this menu section,
there are 18 more listings. For
group dining order the grand
appetizer platter, of six most
popular items or enlarge it to
nine items at a bit more cost.
The Caesar small salad pre-
sentation had whole romaine
lettuce leaves with parmesan
crisp chips and a dressing that
was fairly light in taste and
texture. Note there are seven
additional small salads to
chose from.
Under the heading of comfort
food we tasted tender braised
Yankee pot roast with mashed
potatoes, a mixed group of

vegetables and pan gravy a
terrific plate to try. Likewise,
the chicken pot pie enough
for three or even four was
delicious with big chunks of
chicken breast, carrots, peas,
pearl onions and mushrooms
in a cream sauce that wel-
comed the pieces of the great
homemade crust when it was
broken and submerged. Com-
fort food, indeed. P.S. There
are five other listings in this
The ten pasta and noodle i-
tems are available including
a nice, light fettuccini alfredo
and a pasta with jumbo shrimp
with oven dried tomatoes, ar-
tichoke and either a tomato or
lemon cream sauce.
Spice lovers there is an In-
dochine shrimp and chicken-
that's a fusion of both Chinese
and Indian flavors with jumbo
shrimp, chicken, onions and
sweet ginger sauteed in a sauce
of curry, plum wine, a bit of
cream topped with sun-dried
cherries and apricots served
with white rice. Quite a bit of
a bite.
Other 11 global cuisine lis-
tings include a milder spice
dish in the form of shaking
beef, a combination of pieces
of beef tenderloin plus red
and green onions salted in
a marinade and served with
white rice. The grouping also
features an Italian standard,
done to perfection, in their
veal saltimbocca most tender
large pieces of veal, prosciut-
to, fontina cheese and fresh
sage coated with parmesan
bread crumbs and served with
pasta and a great wine sauce.
There may be none better!
Of the nine fresh fish and
seafood on the menu, the

wild salmon miso glazed
was sweet and delicate with
steamed rice and stir fried
vegetables a large, wonder-
ful portion.
F.YI. Grand Lux has six steak
dishes available, eight grand
combination platters, ten ve-
getable side dishes, eight piz-
za choices plus a list of eigh-
teen burgers and sandwiches.
From the in house bakery,
fourteen offerings tempt the
diner. We were able to sam-
ple tastes of five. The molten
chocolate cake, rich with a
flowing center and a scoop
of vanilla ice cream pleased
the chocoholics among us.
Creme brulee arrived in two
versions classic vanilla and
deep chocolate both with the
crunchy sugary top and both
very fine. Warm rustic apple
pie, a giant portion (a whole
pie) topped with vanilla ice
cream and caramel filled our
senses with delight as did
both the key lime pie, well
above par and the great roas-
ted pineapple upside down
cake. Several of the listed des-
serts require 30 minutes notice
as they are baked to order.
Grand Lux features a late
breakfast on Saturdays and
Sunday until 2PM with a full
menu of food and drink.
With Grand Lux's full bar, a
creative roster of wines, cham-
pagnes, cocktails and beers, it
also offers daily drink specials.
Seating inside for 400 and pa-
tio seating for 75 diners, this
global food emporium offers
maximum selections of fine
food in an attractive atmos-
phere with attentive, know-
ledgeable staff.
Go and Enjoy!

and looked at me as if I
were an intruder in search

they were wrong. The law-

why he is always sitting in
the middle of my walkway.
I wonder if he can see me
or if he just sits there to
get in my way (like an old
boyfriend might).
But at least my snail has
a purpose. And up until a
few weeks ago, I thought I
did too. But it took me un-

to understand why I felt to

Pacific Ocean) someone
gave me a warm engaging
smile (silence is the pre-
mium currency there).

Ah ha, I thought. That kind
sweet smile from a total
stranger was an affirmation
that I existed. It was a nod
that we were both human
beings despite our prob-
able differences in career
goals or mortgage rates.
It was then that I realized
that many of my former
spa mates were spiritually
impoverished. They were

so used to gaining grati-
fication from high profile
careers (or husbands) that
everyone else seemed be-
neath them. They were all
swimming in the shallow
end of the psychic swim-
ming pool.
And why not? When ev-
eryone is always telling
you how wonderful you
are you don't need to de-

velop the depth of your
character (or your spiritual
side). And that's OK be-
cause in this time of so-
ciological and political up-
heaval the debate seems to
focus on our differences,
not our similarities.
But in the end we are all
the same. We may not
watch the same TV shows
or eat at similar restau-
rants, but ultimately we
all want to be loved, to be
seen and to be heard. And
not because of what we
have accomplished in the
courtroom or because of
the man we married, but
because it is our birthright
as human beings.

In America, African-Ame-

In Australia, it is the A-

life miserable for them.

the quest.
"Bran Neu Dae" is old-fashioned and corny, with characters breaking into dance at the

with production of 'Any Wednesday'

Delray Beach Playhouse
kicks off its 64th Season

and runs through October
17. Tickets are $30 and can
be reserved by calling The
Delray Beach Playhouse
Box Office at (561) 272-
1281 ext. 4.
"Any Wednesday" tells the
story of an influential Wall
Street insider named John
Cleves who for two years
has successfully managed
to use his company's tax-

deductible executive suite
as a love-nest for himself
and his attractive young
mistress, Ellen.
But John's secret is almost
exposed one day when his
new secretary innocent-
ly gives a visiting client
(Paul) a key to the suite.
While Ellen is trying to
explain her unusual do-
mestic situation to Paul,
John's wife Dorothy also
drops by.
When Dorothy discovers a
young couple in the middle
of an argument, she imme-
diately assumes that they
are married. To spare Dor-

othy's feelings, Ellen and
Paul form a mischievous
alliance that soon spirals
into a hilarious comedy of
intrigue and romance.
Carole Woods stars as El-

who ties plastic flowers
onto her terrace shrubbery.
Daniel Steinlauf portrays
John, the Wall Street titan

Don't Tell ME You Can't Lose

Weight!...Check Your Mind Set!

Now if losing weight is not
important to you that's OK
with me I'm only talking to
the ones who WANT to lose
weight! My friends come in
all shapes and sizes and I love
every one of them.
So often an "expert" will tell
you what you MUST do... I
only explain why it's best for
your long range healthy life...
and tell you also that you most
certainly can lose weight IF
it's most important to you.
Some people pretend it isn't.
First of all, forget about diet
books and structured diets.
If you find one that works,
you're lucky. Most often they
merely serve as a tempo-
rary crutch that people revert
from. The high recidivism rate
among dieters is well docu-
Next, you must realize this is
a job for you and you alone...
and that no diet book, or per-
son, can be responsible for
YOUR weight loss.
If you're not serious about it,
read no further, but, if you are,
consider what I'm about to
say; it could forever
change your life for the better.
About 25 years ago a major
publisher that I was already in
the middle of writing a book
for asked me to write a diet
book next. They said I must
be an expert on the subject
since I was able to keep my-
self slim all my life, and, if
I would share my methods,
they thought it would be a
hot seller. I snapped back and
asked them if they thought
they could sell a one page diet
book...because all I had to
say on the subject goes like
this: "Take charge of your
life...just eat less...if THAT

doesn't work...
eat less!"
Needless to say they withdrew
the offer!
You KNOW that you're gain-
ing weight or eating too much
when your clothes begin to
tighten up a little. At that
point, you have two choices...
I don't really need to tell you,
but I will anyway! Cut back
on your food intake so you
can fit into that favorite gar-
ment again OR go out and buy
the next size up. We all have
the same choices. Of course,
the correct one is just eat less.
That's all I do. I check the fit
whenever I put my favorite
jeans on, and then do what I
have to do.
What does it mean Just Eat
Less... less than what?
This is important. The answer
is very personal. For example,
if YOU are putting 3 table-
spoons of mashed potatoes
on your plate... put 2 only. If
after a couple of weeks you
are not losing the expected
pounds, start putting only 1 ta-
blespoon on your plate. Carry
this through with everything
you eat. Believe me nothing
will happen to you with less
food... only that your stomach
will shrink and be less and less
demanding as time goes on.
Check Your Mind Set....
Here's The Deal
You can ONLY rely on your-
self..it's YOUR body, it's
YOUR brain and it's YOUR
arm that keeps going up and
down putting food in your
mouth. You already KNOW
what to do...you just don't
want to do it... right? I don't
mean to sound mean this is
how I have lived keeping my
weight down. I'm just trying

to show that you don't need
anyone's book or special food
buying or any other gimmick
to get the pounds off... Check
Your Mind Set and go for it on
your own...just eat less. You
might just add many more
healthy years to your life span
and feel better along the way.
Here Are a Few Tips To Help
Get You Started
* When you sit down at the
table change your image of the
food on the plate. See it, not as
a full plate of food, but rather
as -u!!1. bits" to be eaten one
bite at a time, slowly....no
slower!! Put your fork down
after each bite and take the
time to enjoy the flavor and
sensation of the food. Rush-
ing, even a snack, doesn't give
your brain enough time to
recognize when your stomach
is full. Taking your time will
cause you to feel more full
with less food, and will also
lighten the load on your diges-
tive system.
* Don't believe ex.pen s" who
say you need a big breakfast
when on a diet. The more you
eat, the more you want to eat.
Unless you are a school child,
satisfy morning hunger with a
small breakfast, then, if neces-
sary, have a tiny snack at mid-
morning. It's better to eat five
small meals (or snacks) a day
than three big ones. We do not
need 3 big meals a day!
* Use a luncheon plate at all
meals rather than a larger din-
ner plate. You'll clean your
plate with less food.
I hope you will give it a try
- just eating less means you
don't have to give up your fa-
vorite foods!! Now THAT is
something. Until next time,
Love, Oleda

What makes a salesperson
successful? Not every per-
son is cut out to be a suc-
cessful salesperson. Some
people simply do not have
the right combination of
character traits and behav-
ior patterns, without which
a career in sales would pose
only frustrations, anxiety,
and a lack of fulfillment.
However, for those with
the right chemistry, the op-
portunities for job satisfac-
tion and personal growth in
sales are unlimited.
To be successful, a sales-
person should possess, or
be able to adopt, a set of
essential characteristics
and behavioral patterns.
Many of these character-
istics can be cultivated and
refined by conscientious
application in on-the-job
training. Even a topnotch
salesperson or manager is
constantly perfecting her
or his technique and evalu-
ating their performance.
In my experience I have
found that successful sales-
people have a combination
of the following qualities:
Empathy Do you often
find yourself adjusting to
another person's moods
and behavior, modifying
your own position to ac-
commodate another view-
point? Or, do you find it
difficult to anticipate an-
other person's actions or
to accept an opinion which
is in conflict with your
own? We define empathy
as, "listening to another
person attentively and un-
derstanding their thoughts,

By Gerald Sherman

the right people selling?

emotions and feelings, and
adjusting your own moods
and behavior accordingly,"
(Sherman&Hertz). This is
not to be misconstrued as
s\ inpithi. If the salesper-
son can elicit the needs of
the customer, she or he can
deal with those needs real-
istically. Empathy is one of
the most important keys to
successful selling.
Ego drive When a client
turns you down do you feel
angered, dismiss the failure
with a shrug of the shoulder
or are you driven to over-
come the obstacles to your
success? A professional
salesperson is success driv-
en in a controlled way.
She or he bounces back
quickly from the failure
and looks forward to the
next sales presentation as
an opportunity to restore
self confidence to make up
for the past shortcomings.
We can say that ego drive
pushes the salesperson for
constant achievement and
Integrity Integrity carries a
very special meaning in the
business world; it defines
one's character and repu-
tation in the marketplace,
forms the backbone of that
person's credibility, and is
a major factor in gaining
the trust and admiration
of all who you work with.
Integrity in the business
world is simply describing
things as they are and mak-
ing commitments stand.
What you say is what you
do. You are judged on
your accomplishments and

whether you live up to your
Creativity Although it
doesn't seem like a trait
that would make for an ef-
fective salesperson, it is
important because it devel-
ops your own style of sell-
ing. Do you do things in an
unquestioning manner, ac-
cepting a course of action
because, "that's the way
it's always done it?" Or,
do you perceive the way a
situation is being handled,
and ask yourself, "How can
I do it better?"
Emotional maturity The
buying and selling process
is an emotional one. Do
you get carried away with
your emotions under stress
or in the throes of a difficult
decision or are you able to
accept strain and conflict
as a normal part of your
working day? Clients are
frequently and understand-
ably insecure about mak-
ing their decisions. When
a client says something
that annoys you, don't take
it personally. Internalizing
and reacting to negative
comments is a sign of im-
maturity and there is no
room for this in the sales
arena. Sellers do not have
the luxury of overreacting.
Consider the above criteria
and you will know if you
are the right person for a
career in selling.

Top Ten reasons to "short sale"

your home

By Donovan Ortega

In Timothy McCarthy's
long career in real estate,
he's bought, sold, and re-
financed over 400 million
dollars worth of property.
While he readily admits
this is a difficult time for
property owners, he has
continued to find ways
to put money into his cli-
ent's pocket and give them
peace of mind.
"There are options avail-
able for the troubled home
owner," said McCarthy.
"Even when it feels like
the walls of finance are
closing in and foreclosure
looks imminent, we have
One of these options is the
"short sale". A "short sale"
is a real estate transaction
in which the sale proceeds
fall short of the balance
owed on the property's
"It's a no brainer," said
McCarthy. "Rather than
going into a complicated,
hectic, and harmful home
foreclosure, short sales are
a simple alternative with
huge benefits."
As a favor to the Boca Ra-
ton Tribune, McCarthy de-
veloped a list of benefits of
the "short sale."

Top 10 Reasons to Short
Sale Your Home
Short Sales...

1. Leave Credit Virtually
A foreclosure will stay on
your credit report for a

period of seven
to ten years and
drop your score
by 300 points.
This makes it
nearly impos-
sible to get a
loan, a new
credit card, and
certainly a new
2. Save Face
No one wants to
admit that they
could not afford
to keep their
home. By doing a short
sale, you can be spared this
3. Keep Your Banking
Reputation Intact
Foreclosure can make it
difficult to keep a checking
account, as well as your
bank credit cards. With a
short sale, your bank will
have no reason to take re-
course against you.
4. Allow you to buy a
home more quickly
Instead of having to wait
seven to ten years to pur-
chase a home after a fore-
closure, with a short sale,
you can begin the process
almost immediately.
5. Make it easier to Get a
Federal Loan
In some cases, you may
be able to purchase a new
home right away, even af-
ter a short sale. For exam-
ple, Fannie Mae, a federal
lender, may offer a new
home loan right away to
buyers with a short sale on
their credit.
6. Grant Tax Benefits
In order to help homeown-
ers, the IRS is offering
help for those who decided
to go with a short sale rath-
er than a foreclosure. You

may not have to pay tax
on the forgiven amount of
the sale, which may essen-
tially save you thousands
of dollars.
7. Get Rid of Stress
Home foreclosure is in-
credibly stressful. With a
short sale you evade the
anxiety of that complicat-
ed process.
8. Free up Equity
Even though you may lose
some money in the deal,
you will not be saddled
with a home where you
owe more than the house
is actually worth.
9. Make you more em-
As more employers rely
on credit reports for hir-
ing practices, it is best to
do all you can to avoid a
10. Allow for Better Inter-
est Rates on Loans
By avoiding a foreclosure,
you are in a much better
position at securing lower
rates on future loans.

Consequences of God

Few thoughts have more pro-
found moral, spiritual and
ethical consequences than
God and creation. Chica-
go philosopher and director
of the Institute for Philo-
sophical Research, Mortimer
Adler agrees, "More conse-
quences for thought and ac-
tion follow the affirmation
or denial of God than from
answering any other basic
question." (Mortimer Adler
Great Books of the Wes-
tern World, ed. Robert M.
Hutchins; Chicago: Ency-
clopedia Britannica, 1955),
Secular culture has at the
very least dismissed God as
irrelevant to our existence
or at its most extreme ex-
trapolation, killed Him. In
fact, a prominent evolution-
ist named William Provine
of Comell University, was
very clear in pointing out the
implications of Darwinism.
If Darwinism is true, he said,
then there are five inescap-
able conclusions: 1.There's
no evidence for God. 2.
There's no life after death.
3. There's no absolute foun-
dation for right and wrong.
4. There's no ultimate mea-
ning for life. 5. People don't
really have free will.
As Time magazine put it:
"Charles Darwin didn't want
to murder God, as he once
put it. But he did."
Although the subject of God
may appear to be simple on
the surface, it is an extreme-
ly profound matter. God is
not a secondary but a prima-
ry factor. If God is the cause

of the universe, he must be
beyond and greater than the
physical dimension, just as a
car-maker is greater than the
car. It is obvious we cannot
examine God in a test tube,
but that does not mean that
there is no evidence of God.
We can say with equal em-
phasis that we cannot prove
Napoleon or Lincoln by the
scientific method. In order
for something to be proved
by the scientific method it
must be repeatable. History,
by its very nature is non-re-
peatable. Nevertheless, be-
cause historical event cannot
be proved by repetition does
not disprove their reality as
The scientific method is
useful in measuring mate-
rial things. No one has ever
seen three feet of love or six
pounds of justice, but we
would be foolish to de-ny
their reality. Someone has said,
"to insistthat Godbe proved by
the scientific method is like
insisting that a telephone be
used to measure radioacti-

There is a clear fact: Scrip-
ture declares throughout its
pages that God created the
"In the beginning God crea-
ted the heavens and the
earth...God saw all that he
had made, and it was very
good." (Genesis 1:1, 31)
"You made the heavens,
even the highest heavens,
and all their starry host, the
earth and all that is on it, the
seas and all that is in them.

You give life to everything,
and the multitudes of hea-
ven worship you." (Nehe-
miah 9:6)
"How many are your works,
O Lord! In wisdom you ma-
de them all; the earth is full
of your creatures. There is
the sea, vast and spacious,
teeming with creatures be-
yond number-living things
both large and small." (Psalm
"Through him all things we-
re made; without him nothing
was made that has been made."
(John 1:3)
[Christ] "is the image of
the invisible God, the first-
born over all creation. For
by him all things were cre-
ated: things in heaven and on
earth, visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers
or rulers or authorities; all
things were created by him
and for him." (Colossians
"In these last days he has
spoken to us by his Son,
whom he appointed heir of
all things, and through whom
he made the universe." (He-
brews 1:2)
Is it reasonable to believe in
God, or must I commit intel-
lectual suicide? Is the only
evidence for God religious
experience or psychological
projection or are there pro-
found logical arguments that
need to be carefully con-
sidered? Over the next few
weeks we will consider a
few...perhaps you may con-
clude with Albert Einstein
"The mathematical precision
of the universe reveals the
mathematical mind of God."

Q. My husband and I used
to have a lot more money
then we do now. After a
year of hi!,ga'g,,. and a
two-week trial, we have
spent about two million
dollars on lawyers, accoun-
tants and psychologists in
our divorce case. The trial
was over two months ago
and we still do not have a
decision from the judge.
At the end ofthe trial which
covered a custody fight, a
fight over what assets were
marital and what weren 't,
a fight over the value of
my husband' world hotel
chain, and my request for
particular items in distri-
bution of property, includ-
ing our home, which my
husband also wants, the
judge asked both attorneys
to submit a proposed judg-
ment. Both attorneys sent
in proposals over a month
My lawyer told me that he
could not predict the out-
come on most of the im-
portant issues. Many ques-
tions boil down to whom
the judge believed: me or
my husband, my accoun-
tant or his accountant, my

psychologist or his psy-
chologist, etc. My lawyer
also told me that while I
have a right to appeal any
of the judge decisions, the
appellate court is limited
on the grounds for over-
turning a trial judge deci-
sion. Can you explain that
for me?
A. A very small percentage
of appeals are successful
because trial judges are giv-
en broad discretion under
most circumstances. For
instance, judicial decisions
regarding the credibility of
witnesses cannot usually
be overturned. According
to our jurisprudence, trial
judges are in a much better
position to determine cred-
itability than are appellate
judges because they have
seen the witnesses in per-
son, and can consider their
Discretion in decisions
would include the amount
of alimony to award, as
alimony is not governed by
a schedule, as is child sup-
port. However, there are
many decisions overturn-
ing alimony awards as too
high or two low, based on

the principle that such an
award should not impover-
ish either party. Therefore,
there is a limit to judicial
discretion, which can form
the basis for overturning a
trial judge.
Other times trial judge de-
cisions are just wrong, as a
matter of law. For instance,
in valuation questions the
judge has the right to ac-
cept the testimony of one
expert or the other, or nei-
ther, but cannot insert his or
her own opinion of value,
or average the opinions of
the experts.
Judges are often over-
turned, although they may
have made a correct deci-
sion, because they did not
make certain findings of
fact required the statutes
and case law to show the
appellate court exactly
how the decision was
reached. The basic prem-
ise in the appellate court
is that the trial court's de-
cision arrives there with
a presumption of correct-
ness, which must be over-
turned in order to have a
successful appeal.

Mastopexy can solve problem of

sagging breasts

Dear Dr Man, I'm sick of
having ,ri,'- breasts. I
really want a breast lift.
I'm done having kids. I'm
in a good financial way
and I really want to look
sexy again. Can I get im-
plants at the same time I
get a breast lift?

Answer: Many women li-
ke yourself desire a mas-
topexy because pregnancy
and nursing have left them
with stretched skin and less
volume in their breasts.
Other factors such as age
and the force of gravi-
ty can also take their toll
on a woman's breasts. The
skin loses its elasticity, the
breasts lose their shape, and
they begin to sag. A breast
lift, or mastopexy, is a sur-
gical procedure used to
raise and reshape sagging
breasts. A breast lift repo-
sitions the breasts into a
desired position and gives

a more pleasing contour
and shape. A breast lift can
also reduce the size of the
areola, the darker skin sur-
rounding the nipple.
A mastopexy can be done
in conjunction with breast
augmentation for women
who have small breasts or
have lost breast volume
(due to age, pregnancy, or
other factors).
To achieve this, breast im-
plants are inserted during
the mastopexy to increase
both breast firmness and
size. Breasts of any size can
be lifted and enhanced,
but please note that results
may not last as long for
heavy breasts.
Anyone planning to have
more children should post-
pone a breast lift: while
there are no special risks
that will affect future
pregnancies (for one, mas-
topexy usually does not
interfere with breast fee-

ding), pregnancy is likely
to stretch the breasts again
and offset the results of the
During the procedure, the
surgeon will mark the areas
of skin that will be removed
above and below the areo-
la. The nipple will then be
moved to a new, higher
position while the excess
skin above and below the
nipple is removed and the
breast reshaped. The pro-
cedure takes approximate-
ly two to four hours and is
performed in an outpatient
surgery facility.
As with any surgery, there
are some risks involved
with a breast uplift; these
risks can be increased when
combined with breast im-
plants. These issues should
be clarified during your
consultation with a board
certified plastic surgeon.
Best of luck to you.

television networks, as well as national and local magazines and newspapers for his

Lions Come Out Flat, Suffer First Loss Of the Season

Photos andArticle By:
Orlando Greenwald

Having had a bye week in-
between games, all eyes
were on this week's game
against district rival, Hal-
Tough opponents like Hal-
landale call for consistent
play with up-tempo energy
from beginning to end, but
this time the Lions came
out flat. The Chargers be-
gan with an opening drive
that resulted in a touch-
down; a punch in the stomach
that should have been a
wake-up call for the Lions.
Another touchdown fol-
lowed, but the two-point

conversion was missed,
giving the Chargers a 12
to 0 lead. Right before the
half ended, the Lions sud-
denly came through: Matt
Kelly threw a touchdown
with triple zeros on the
clock. Little did we know
that this would be the only
score for the Lions all
Overall, the offense was
not its usual, power-foot-
ball self. Hallandale had
clearly taken note of the
Lions' dominant run-game,
and had planned accord-
ingly. Third downs were
a problem, and false starts
and turnovers threw off the
rhythm for the Lions, who

suffered a season low of 7
points. The defense stepped
up after halftime, however,
which at least allowed the
team to hang on.
In the fourth quarter, a su-
re fire INT was dropped.
This could have been the
miracle that all were pray-
ing for: the turnover would
have given the Lions the
ball, down just 12 to 7,
with over two minutes to
work with. Unfortunately,
the drop led to a rushing
touchdown by the Char-
gers; a stab to the heart that
finally killed all hope for a
roaring comeback. Game
over, 18 to 7: the first loss
of the season.

When the players see the
game film they will real-
ize that a "W" was well in
reach throughout, and that
they defeated themselves
with mental mistakes. They
could have taken this game
by storm, along with a 1-0
record in district play. Ho-
pefully the team can put
this loss behind them and
use it as motivation for the
remainder of the season.
The Lions' next game is
on October 1 against cross
town rival, Boca High. Be
there and support your Li-
ons help them get back on
a winning track! Let's go

Men on the Hot Seat:
Mario Chalmers and Eric
"The point guard job is
mine to lose" said Chalm-
ers to the media. He has
never been so right, after
a subpar sophomore cam-
paign, Chalmers is hoping
to build on the success of
the retooled Miami Heat
and become the next great
Miami Heat point guard.
But, if he has another sub-

ing a lot of playing time,
Chalmers will see most of
the games from the bench

Third-year head coach Eric
Spolestra has the most im-
portant season of his short
career this season. Can he
manage all the egos in this
team and make them sync
into his program? Can

he take this HEAT team
past the first round of the

around for the playoffs if
he can't guide this super-

step down and let the God-

Biggest Question: Can
LeBron lose his pride and
be second best to Dwyane
To be honest, this ques-
tion can go three-ways.
Can Bosh be okay with
being the third best player
in the team? Can Wade be
okay with not taking all the
shots? It's a very delicate
situation and there's a very
fine line between greatness,
and failure. By no means,

don't get me wrong, this
team will be great, but the
first year will be one of
those "feeling each other
out" kind of things. Not
only for LeBron, Bosh,

only have seven players
from last season, and only
two left from the champi-

Dolphins claim tight end Mickey

Shuler off waivers

seems the Miami
Dolphins weren't
finished shaking
up the tight end
Position when they
waived John Nalbone and
promoted Jeron Mastrud
earlier this week.
Aaron Wilson of the Na-
tional Football Post re-
ported on Twitter that the
Dolphins claimed tight end
Mickey Shuler off waivers
from the Minnesota Vi-
kings on Thursday.
Shuler's addition gives the
Dolphins a full 53-man ac-
tive roster, and three tight
ends for the first time all

Mickey Shuler, Jr. is the
son of former NFL tight
end Mickey Shuler, who
earned two Pro Bowl selec-
tions over a 14-year career
with the New York Jets and
Philadelphia Eagles.
A four-year letterman at
Penn State, the younger
Shuler totaled 27 recep-
tions, 300 receiving yards,
and four touchdowns in
four seasons as a blocking

tight end to complement
Nittany Lions starter An-
drew Quarless.
Shuler was drafted by the
Minnesota Vikings in the
seventh round (214th over-
all) of the 2010 NFL Draft
- two rounds after Quar-
less went to the Green Bay
After signing a four-year,
$1.85 million contract
with the Vikings that in-
cluded a $60,000 signing
bonus, Shuler appeared in
all four preseason games
and caught one pass for
two yards and a touch-
Shuler made the Vikings'
53-man roster following
the preseason, but was in-
active during the team's
first two regular season
games losses to the New
Orleans Saints and the
The Vikings waived Shuler
on Sept. 22 to make room
for newly-signed wide re-
ceiver Hank Baskett, who
had recently been let go by
the Eagles.
Because the Dolphins
claimed Shuler off waiv-

ers, they will inherit his
original four-year contract
that he signed with the Vi-
kings in the offseason.

The Dolphins are bring-
ing in all the young bod-
ies they can at tight end in
search of a diamond in the
rough, with rookies Mas-
trud and Shuler the active
roster and Dedrick Epps
on the practice squad.
Shuler obviously comes
from a quality football
pedigree, playing the same
position and coming from
the same alma mater as his
Pro Bowl father.
Widely regarded as one
of the best blocking tight
ends in the 2010 draft
class, Shuler possesses
great fundamentals in that
department and brings a
hard-working attitude to
the craft.
Shuler is also a bit of an
underrated athlete, post-
ing a 4.63-second 40-yard
dash time as Penn State's
Pro Day before the draft.
He might never become
what his father was, but
Shuler is a solid tight end
prospect and is a nice ad-
dition for a Dolphins team
looking for depth behind
starter Anthony Fasano.
Mastrud looks to be the
No. 2 tight end this Sunday
against the Jets because of
his better experience in
the Dolphins' offense, but
Shuler is the better pros-
pect and will be someone
to keep an eye on as he
pushes for playing time in
the coming weeks.

Marlins Financial Documents

By: Matt Bluesten

What exactly do Florida
Marlins executives Jef-
frey Loria and David
Sampson represent? To
me, they don't represent
Marlins baseball. Holding
back cash while the city of
Miami pays for most of a
new Marlins stadium isn't
the baseball spirit. The
bottom-line is, Loria and
Sampson must be held ac-
countable for their actions.
Otherwise, they look like
unscrupulous businessmen
- and that's not what Mar-
lins baseball is.
They misled the general
public into believing they
didn't have the necessary
funds to build a new ball-
park. In a nutshell, they
withheld this necessary
information from the city
of Miami. The organiza-
tion took a healthy chunk
of MLB-distributed mon-
ey for profit. Therefore,
Jeffrey Loria and David
Sampson haven't dis-
closed the organization's
full financial situation.
Documents show that the
Marlins could have paid a
significant amount for the
new stadium's construc-
tion. They have even been
turning an operating profit.
This is despite the fact that
Loria and Sampson have
been crying poverty for
The Marlins are not strug-
gling financially based on
any stretch of the imagina-
tion. They have been mak-
ing profits and stuffing
revenue sharing money
into their pockets.
Revenue sharing money
is supposed to be used to-

ward signing players and
increasing payroll, not for
making a team's owner
wealthier. Where are the
repercussions and con-
sequences? Why doesn't
MLB step in and stop this?
They must be forced to
change the way they do
business. However, as far
as the ballpark issue is con-
cerned, it is too late now.
Amazingly, they were able
to pull off a deal where
they would ultimately only
be required to pay $155
million of the $634 million
for the stadium complex.
Talk about getting away
with highway robbery!
Loria and Sampson held
the city of Miami at bay
until they got what they
wanted. The city was pet-
rified of losing a team. The
Marlins ownership took
advantage of this fear.
To me, it seems as if Loria
and Sampson don't really
care about the fans or win-
ning baseball games. All
they cared about was their
bottom-line and increasing
In 2009, the Marlins had
an operating income of
$11.1 million. Guess what
the Marlins owner decided
to do? The team decided

it was a good idea not to
talk about the $48.9 mil-
lion in profits over the last
two years. The reason why
the team decided to do this
was because they knew if
the county commissioners
discovered the undisclosed
cash, the Marlins would
be asked to provide more
The fact is, the Marlins
could have invested a lot
more dough into the new
ballpark. Evidently, Loria
and Sampson are both ex-
cellent at moving money
around. They don't really
know how to do anything
Most importantly, the
money could have gone
toward education and it
could have been used to
save at least 1,200 jobs in
Miami-Dade County.
Sampson must have been
kidding when he called
the leak of the Marlins
financial documents and
the five other MLB teams'
financial documents that
were leaked "a crime". Are
you kidding me, Sampson?
Marlins fans and local tax-
payers are smart enough to
know what the truth is.

The Owls fall 21-17 despite a late

fourth quarter rally


By: Jon Gordon Ricco

The Owls fell 21-17 de-
spite a late fourth quarter
rally Saturday night in
Lockhardt Stadium to the
North Texas Mean Green.
Starting off the game right,
the Owls marched down
the field to take the lead
first with an Alfred Mor-
ris rushing touchdown. The
Mean Green answered
with a pass from quarter-

back Riley Dodge to Dar-
ius Carey for a touchdown.
Before the half the Owls
would take the lead 10-7
with a field goal but North
Texas put a touchdown
on the board to take a 14-
10 lead into the half. The
third quarter was all Mean
Green as they built their
lead to 21-10. Riley Dodge
would finish with 213 to-
tal yards and two touch-
downs. Late in the fourth
quarter the Owls would
finally make things inter-
esting. Behind quarterback
Jeff Vancamp's 273 yards
he would throw a touch-
down to tight-end Rob
Houser with 6:52 left mak-
ing it 21-17. The Owls'

defense would hold to give
the offense a chance to
win the game. Marching
down to the Mean Green's
32nd yard line, they would
fall short on fourth down.
North Texas would run out
the clock dropping FAU to
(1-2) with a game against
South Florida in Tampa on

FAU gets Board of Governors' OK to kick

off football stadium construction

r _

By Dale M. King for their support of this tre-

ready for some football?
Local football, that is.
Fans of the Florida Atlantic
University Fighting Owls
football team are pumped
up today about a ruling
from the Florida Board
of Governors. That panel
unanimously approved a
resolution Sept. 16 autho-
rizing FAU to finance a por-
tion of the construction of a
30,000-seat stadium and as-
sociated improvements on
its Boca Raton campus.
The BOG approval follows
the FAU Board of Trustees'
unanimous approval of the
project and its financing
plan in a vote taken July 21.
"This is such an exciting
moment in FAU's history
and will certainly benefit
FAU students, faculty, staff,
alumni and the South Flo-
rida community for years to
come," said Nancy Blosser,
chair of FAU's Board of
Trustees. "We are grateful
to the Board of Governors

mendously important pro-
The planned stadium is the
centerpiece of FAU's In-
novation Village, located
in the north central area of
the campus. Home to the
Owl football team, the ope-
nair stadium, a $70 million
project, is slated to feature
20 luxury suites with 1,000
club seats, and the latest,
state-of-the-art amenities.
Construction of the project
is expected to commence in
October 2010 and is antici-
pated to be completed and
available for use in the fall
2011 semester.
"What a great day to be an
FAU Owl! The new FAU
stadium will undoubtedly
heighten the traditional uni-
versity experience for our
students and all members of
the FAU family," said FAU
President Mary Jane Saun-
ders. "FAU is becoming a
'first choice' university for
an increasing number of
students who seek the tra-
ditional American college

"The stadium will provide
a wonderful opportunity for
us to come together as a
community, building tradi-
tions and enhancing the uni-
versity experience," said
Head Football Coach Ho-
ward Schnellenberger. "The
FAU Owls two-time bowl-
winning football team will
truly be playing their games
before a 'home' crowd. It's
an amazing time for the uni-
Innovation Village serves as
a unique gathering area for
alumni, students, faculty,
staff and members of the
greater community to live,
learn, dine, shop, have fun
and build tradition. A part
of Innovation Village, the
student recreation/fitness
center and the Marleen
and Harold Forkas Alumni
Center opened in 2009. A
student housing facility is
under construction and is
scheduled to open in fall
2011. The planning contin-
ues for the retail area associ-
