BOCA RATON City officials have approved a list
of projects and measures they hope the State Legis-
lature and Congress will adopt when those boards -
containing many new faces convene in 2011.


The lengthy roster is
heavy on public transit
projects, and also em-
phasizes the creation of
a new Interstate 95 in-
terchange in the area of
Florida Atlantic Univer-
sity.
The interchange was first
proposed back in 2002
by then-State Rep. Bill
Andrews at a meeting
with then-FAU Presi-
dent Anthony Catanese
and then-Mayor Steven
Abrams.

In 2005, the Dubai-based
MBC dubbed 30 episodes
of "The Simpsons" into
Arabic, turning Bart into
Badr and Homer into
Omar, who chugs non-
alcoholic pop. This was
one of the many changes
to show, now called "Al
Shamshoon," intended
to broaden its appeal in
the Arab market. Unfor-
tunately, those changes
also blunted the show's
once-biting satire, and
the whole thing flopped.
What creator of "Family
Guy" would've been on one

his travel agent given him

Boca Police nab trio in

connection with burglary

on 27th Avenue


BOCA RATON Boca Ra-
ton Police nabbed three
suspects in connection with
a burglary reported just be-
fore 2:30 p.m. Nov. 30 at a
home on NW 27th Avenue.
Suspects were identified as
Travis Grant, 21, and An-
quinette Webb, 18, both of
Deerfield Beach and Heri-
son Joseph, 24, of Boca
Raton.
Public Information Mana-
ger Mark Economou said
Joseph and Grant were
charged with two counts
of burglary to a dwelling,
two counts of grand theft,
and obstructing an officer.
Webb was charged with
two counts each of burglary
and grand theft.
Detectives obtained a search
warrant for their car and re-
covered a large amount of
property.
Authorities are investigat-
ing the trio further to deter-
mine if they have commit-
ted other burglaries.
Initially, said Economou,
Boca Police responded to
a report of two suspicious
males seen leaving a house
on 27th Avenue with a tele-


vision on top of their car.
A neighbor called police
when she saw a small black
sporty car with a spoiler
backed into a nearby drive-
way and two black male
suspects putting a televi-
sion (still in the box) on the
roof of the car and drive
away.
A short time later, said the
police report, a Boca Raton
officer, working an off-duty
assignment nearby, saw the
car and began to follow it.
The officer stopped the ve-
hicle in a church parking
lot and two male suspects
jumped out and fled on
foot. The driver, identified
as Anquinette Webb, was
taken into custody imme-
diately. After a foot pur-
suit, one suspect, identified
as Henrison Joseph, was
TASERed and taken into
custody.
The third suspect identified
as Travis Grant was not ini-
tially located, said police.
Later that afternoon, a resi-
dent called reporting a sus-
picious person in the same
area matching Grant's des-
cription. Officers, inclu-
ding K-9 teams, once again
searched the area. A short
time later, Grant surren-
dered when he was located
and confronted by the K-9
officers.
The report said detectives
linked Joseph, Grant and
Webb to at least one oth-
er residential burglary in
which several televisions
and jewelry were taken.

Two teenagers arrested for water

pipe vandalism incidents in Boca
.. Ir 1


BOCA RATON Boca Ra-
ton Police detectives arrested
two teenagers December 1 in
connection with the numer-
ous water pipe vandalism
incidents that had occurred
the previous weekend.
Public Information Mana-
ger Mark Economou said
the vandalism cases which
totaled 29 occurred in an
area from NW 4th Avenue
to Federal Highway and
from about the 2600 block
of NW 2nd Avenue south to
Palmetto Park Road. When
officers became aware of
the vandalism trend, they
increased patrols in the area
and spoke with a number
of juveniles. Officers docu-
mented these interactions.
When detectives reviewed
these reports, they narrowed
down their list of potential
suspects.
A day later, detectives spo-
ke with Lance Dankel, a
juvenile whom officers had
contacted twice over the
weekend. Economou said
Dankel told officers that al-
though he and two other ju-
veniles live in the area and
were walking around the
crime scenes all weekend,
they saw nothing unusual,
despite the fact that they
would have walked past
several of the broken water
pipes, gushing water.
Detectives then spoke with
a juvenile who said he was


Theodore Vanderlaag
with Dankel over the week-
end. This juvenile, who
spoke to detectives with
his mother present, gave
detectives a detailed ac-
count of all the vandalism,
Economou said. The youth
told detectives Dankel and
another juvenile, named
Theodore Vanderlaag, both
Boca Raton residents, alleg-
edly committed the crimes
and he provided details,
which included locations,
business names, and the
method they used to dam-
age the water pipes. He also
provided several locations
that were as yet unreported.
Detectives confirmed the
details he provided with the
evidence found at the scene
of the crimes.
Economou said detectives
spoke with another juvenile
that was also present during
the crimes, and confirmed
that Dankel and Vanderlaag
allegedly committed the van-
dalism. Although this witness
was present, he did not par-
ticipate in the crimes.
Officers arrested Vander-
laag and Dankel Dec. 1
and charged them with 33
counts each of vandalism.
The aggregate amount of
the damage sustained to
property of the city of Boca
Raton and various business-
es is estimated to be more
than $15,000.

Initially, the idea was
drawn up to help relieve
the glut of traffic on Glades
Road, but it will also come
in handy now that FAU
is building an Innovation
Village and a 30,000 seat
stadium on campus.
Since the early 2000s, the
interchange plan has been
proceeding slowly up the
list of highway projects to
be done, but funding has
not been allocated for the
final work.
Both the city's state and
federal agenda urges leg-
islators to support "fund-
ing of the new 1-95 inter-
change and auxiliary lanes
between Glades Road and
Yamato Road, to support
FAU and regional growth."
From the state, the city is
seeking support of Depart-
ment of Transportation
projects in Boca Raton
and backing for the South
Florida Regional Trans-
portation Authority and
dedicated funding for Tri-
Rail. Money would also
be included for city shuttle


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


Buses, shuttles, 1-95 interchange top Boca's list of


service, bike lanes and bus
shelters.
Federal funding for "com-
prehensive transporta-
tion strategy initiatives,
including shuttle service,
pedestrian-friendly road-
way design standards and
environmentally sensitive
infrastructure projects" are
also in the package.
Council members ap-
proved the two lists af-
ter Deputy City Manager
George S. Brown outlined
them at a recent meeting.
In a nutshell, said Brown,
the city is hoping to keep
the state out of its financial
coffers. The city opposes
caps on revenue or ex-
penditures and is dead set
against state government
messing with its Home
Rule duties.
Issues of water also rose
to the top, including sup-
port of dedicated funding
for drinking water and
wastewater infrastructure
improvement projects and
funding to implement the
federal mandate for sepa-
rating municipal storm wa-
ter sewer systems through
the National Pollutant Dis-
charge Elimination System
Permitting.

So I guess what I got was a MAN-o-gram


Tye had a lot of medi-
Scal examinations in my
Time. I had my tonsils
out when I was 9 and I've
endured one of those pro-
cedures that uses sound
waves to break up a kid-
ney stone. I've had my
share of X-rays, MRIs and
even a CT scan.
But I had a test the other
day that I never, never, in
my wildest dreams, ima-
gined I would undergo.
I had a mammogram.
Chuckle if you will, but
now I know what women
must go through on a regu-
lar basis when they reach a
certain age.
Let me assure you that, as
far as I know, I am in good
health. And I won praise
from those I met at a mam-
mography clinic for being
aware of the telltale signs
of possible disease and
following them up, even
though it is mainly a fe-
male disease.
Here's the back story. I
had to visit my dermatolo-
gist recently just a rou-
tine check since I've had


several treatments for skin
cancer. I told him I felt a
pain on the left side of my
chest, under the breast. It
wasn't a lump or a mole; it
was just a sore spot. And it
only hurt if I pressed on it.
He mused, then said, "It's
worth looking at." He re-
ferred me to another spe-
cialist.
That doctor checked me
out, and with a little more
certainty, said he felt it was
some type of tissue en-
largement that happens for
no particular reason, and
then takes a few months to
go away.
But to guarantee that he
was right, he told me to
have a mammogram.
Sure, my fellow workers
got a kick out of it. Most
are too young to have had
such a procedure, but my
wife walked me through it.
And the doctor had already
assured me there would be
other men in the clinic.
There were. And I was
told many men also come
in for mammograms. I
remember that in the line


of duty, I once interviewed
a man with breast cancer.
And back in October, I
wrote several stories about
breast cancer survivors for
the Boca Raton Tribune.
I must admit I felt like the
proverbial fish out of water
at the clinic. I knew noth-
ing about protocol. And
the form I filled out con-
tained many questions that
didn't apply to me, a male.
But everyone was very ni-
ce, and ushered me into the
room where I was to have
the actual "pictures" taken.
I tried to restrain my desire
to joke around; after all,
this was a medical proce-
dure. I stepped up to the ma-
chine. A courteous woman
named Lois told me how to
position myself. Then, the
device squeezed down on
the tissue of the left breast.
She then took shots of the
right breast; both sides
again from a different an-
gle, then moved back to
the left breast, which was
the area of concern.
"I want one more with
a little more tissue," she


said.
"Sorry, I don't think I have
much more," I said, trying
not to sound like I was kid-
ding.
Soon, it was over. As I sat
in the waiting room while
the pictures were prepared,
I talked to a man and
woman. The gentleman
was there for some type
of procedure. We talked a
bit, and a woman came out
with my pictures.
I delivered them to the
doctor's office across the
street. And I am awaiting
the results. Everyone has
pretty much assured me
that the situation is nothing
to worry about.
For much of my career, I
have been writing stories
that urge people to see a
doctor for anomalies par-
ticularly in stories about
breast cancer patients and
survivors.
Now that I've talked the
talk, I can actually say
I've walked the walk. And
you should, too. Men and
women both. Don't let
things like this go by with-
out an examination.

PUBLISHER
By Douglas Heizer

,When you help a child, you

are really helping yourself


We here at the Boca Raton
Tribune are very excited
about all the wonderful
things that are happening
this season.
The holiday lights are on
all over Boca Raton, and
we are in the middle of our
holiday decorations con-
test.
There's a special spirit of
giving in the air, one that
only comes at this time of
the year.
We hope hundreds of peo-
ple will turn out Sunday,
Dec. 12, for the Fourth An-
nual Carousel Day at the
Sugar Sand Park Carousel,
300 S. Military Trail in
Boca Raton.
It will be an exciting day,
that's for sure, with chil-
dren able to ride the car-
ousel as much as they want


for free.
But it's a day for families
to enjoy being together
at this wonderful holiday
time of the year.
Most delightful is the fact
that children, their parents
and everyone who comes
to Carousel Day can bring
an unwrapped present that
will be given to a needy
child either through the
Wayne Barton Study Cen-
ter or Boca Helping Hands.
We know a lot of people
wonder how they can give
to a good cause. This is
one of the easiest. We've
already heard from people
who said they are going
out to buy a toy or two
- or more just to bring
them to Carousel Day and
help a child who may not
receive any presents.


For me, doing nice things
for others have always
given me a good feeling
inside. We all need a little
dost of this spiritual cheer
to make the holidays more
festive. Any kind of an un-
wrapped toy, big or small,
will warm the heart of a
child.
Just look at the face of a
little boy or girl grasping
a doll or a toy truck and
you'll see the real meaning
of the holidays. It's some-
thing everyone one of us
needs to make our festivi-
ties complete.
We hope to see you Sun-
day between 10 a.m. and
2 p.m. at Sugar Sand Park
for Carousel Day. If you
need more information,
call 561-347-3900.

Cil


POSITIVE LIVING
By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.


Once Upon a Time...


Every human story pos-
sesses one or more dis-
tinct "once upon a time"
moments, whether merely
to celebrate a pleasant oc-
currence, or to mark a de-
cisive turning point which
had prompted one into a
significant new direction.
For some, this can be re-
volutionary in nature, and
may escort one into living
"happily ever after."
In the case of others, some
of those "moments" may
be repeated again in diverse
ways, yet not ne-cessarily
offering one a life of unin-
terrupted bliss and consis-
tent happiness in the world.
The experience of living
comes in different sizes and
shapes to every individual,
rich or poor, educated or
not, young or old.
Human life is no fairy tale,
though many aspects of
daily living may assume
some of the qualities usu-
ally associated with those


stories.
Fairy-tales are imaginary,
but human existence must
always acknowledge the
real world with all its strug-
gles, ugliness, challenges,
and opportunities also. No
waving of a magic wand
will ever shape things bet-
ter for anyone. Only per-
sonal initiative, persistent
courage, and consistent de-
termination will ever lead
one forward in life's trajec-
tories!
In the words of Rabbi Marc
Gafni, all persons "seek the
affirmation that the human
being has a soul print a
unique cal-ling and a spe-
cial story possessing infi-
nite value, meaning, and
dignity."
For every individual, it's
imperative that a land-
mark experience be deter-
mined, a significant turning
point be established, from
whence one can proceed
in life with renewed assur-


ance and contagious zest.
In other words, determine
your most significant "once
upon a time" instant, which
may prompt you daily in
the process leading to ex-
citing, tangible results.
Recognize and celebrate
the uniqueness of your per-
sonal, unfolding biography,
remembering further that
only a life with purpose
at every step taken, can
face any forks on the road
knowing precisely the cor-
rect direction to follow.
Physical obstacles or any
other impediments placed
before you may retard your
progress but not necessar-
ily prevent you from still
advancing and, in due time,
reaching your destination.
Your ultimate success re-
mains tied to that unique
"once upon a time" occur-
rence in your life which you
can continue to enhance as
your years roll on!

children's support services
for our foster children,"
said Jeffrey Zirulnick SOS

BOCA RATON On Mon-
day night, the sixth night of
Hanakkah, more than 100
people gathered in Royal
Palm's Monument Plaza
in Boca Raton to light the
Menorah.
The candles were illumi-
na-ted in cold and windy
weather. Those in atten-
dance at the event danced
and sang to live music.
Rabbi Ruvi New was the
master of ceremonies and
all the other Boca Chabad
rabbis participated. Jim and
Marta Batmasian, own-
ers of the plaza who stood
by in the unusually cold
weather, were recognized
for their contribution to the
community.
Former Boca Raton mayor
and now County Commis-
sion Steven Abrams along


with other local officials
participated in the candle
lighting ceremony.
A highlight of the evening
was a film clip of Gilad
Shalit, the Israeli soldier
being held by Hamas ter-
rorists for years without
allowing Red Cross or any
other humanitarian orga-
nization to see him. Signs
saying "Free Gilad" and
the signing of petitions to
authorities to help the im-
prisoned soldier, brought
the high spirited celebra-
tion down to reality.
Also, a film of The Luba-
vitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Ma-
nachem Shneerson, with
some brilliant words of
wisdom that reflected on
Israel now and in the fu-
ture, was viewed by all.

ON THE MONEY
By Steve L. PoIteran:i


The Double-Bind


The mother says to her son:
"Come here, darling, why
don't you come and kiss
Mommy? You never kiss
Mommy." As the child comes,
the Mother stiffens and free-
zes. When the child stops,
confused, she says: "Come
darling don't ever be afraid of
expressing your feelings."
A wife laments that her hus-
band never brings her flowers
spontaneously and she tells
him so. He is in a double bind.
If he brings her flowers, it's
not being spontaneous, if he
doesn't, her accusation is cor-
rect and he can't please her.
It's a damned if you do,
damned if you don't situation.
Your broker, advisor, or ra-
dio personality tells you to
hold onto your stocks in a
terrible, terrible market. He
says: Si':c!, beat all other
investments in the long-run."
As a matter of fact, he points
to many very successful in-
vestors and says: "They are
buying now, not selling". He
tells you: "calculations of fu-
ture returns in the market are
now 10-12%. Do you really
want to sell everything now,
that in a matter of weeks, the
market has fallen to such low
levels?" So you grit your teeth
and hold.
Yet, each day you are tested.
Each day you see your invest-
ments fall in value. The news
is bleak and you are afraid to
look at your monthly state-
ment. If you do, you feel nau-
seous.
You're in a double-bind. Caught
between your desire to earn
a high return and not make
the same past mistakes and
the fear that "this time is dif-
ferent", and just when you
thought you were doing it
right, the rules of the game
change on you.
It's a double-bind. Damned if


you do- damned if you don't.
So what do you do?
There are some ways out of
this dilemma.
One of the first rules of getting
out of a double-bind situation
is to realize that one person or
entity in the relationship is the
so-called "power person". It is
usually the one presenting the
double-bind, whether it's the
Mother, the Wife, The Army
or your broker. They are set-
ting the limits of the discus-
sion putting you in this dou-
ble-bind situation. So firstly,
you need to understand who
the "power-person" is.
Secondly, you have to make
up your own mind as to what
you can do. If the child were
an adult, he could say: "Why
do you recoil from me when I
try to kiss you? How can you
expect me not to be confused
that your words and actions
are different?" Gaining a bit
of power for himself. The
husband could take on more
power by saying: "I don't
bring you flowers, but I do
other things, spontaneously
and from my heart."
To your broker or advisor:
You have decided to give this
person whom you trust, the
power to guide you and make
some important decisions
for you. You have decided to
give up some power and fol-
low the professional's guid-
ance. But you still have to
have the power. Are there any
reasons that your level of trust
has been diminished? I'm not
talking about predicting the
market decline. No one can
consistently do that correctly.
As a matter of fact, the best in-
vestors don't even try. But is
he meeting with you through
these tough times? Is he ta-
king your call and explaining
as many times necessary why
you are invested in this and


that? Is he acutely aware of
your emotional risk tolerance?
Are you confident that despite
the markets'weakness, your
total portfolio is basically
sound? If not, you have the
power to change and break the
double-bind.
What about your humble ra-
dio advisor? Should you fol-
low what I or any other TV or
Magazine guru has to say? Do
you want to give your power
over to a person that has to
speak in generalities to get a
point across? No. Take in the
info, feed it through your log-
ic, learn a little more, talk to
others and get your own view.
Ask your advisor to com-
ment on these questions. Any
good advisor will take other's
words and thoughts into con-
sideration.
So what about my original
challenge? Hold on and watch
your investments decline in
value, or sell everything and
get out of the market entirely?
It's in your power; there is no
real double-bind because you
have to know yourself. Do
you really think you're prob-
lems will be solved by buying
CDs at 1%? If so, do it and
don't look back.
Is the current value of your port-
folio, as dismal as it may be,
having an effect on you right
now, other than emotionally? If
not, why the panic? If you can
be sure of ir ihnii, what goes
down will come up eventually.
No one's life, no market, no so-
ciety experiences wonderful
times always.
There are always the bad days,
months and sometimes even
years. Can you wait? Can you
"tough" this one out? If so, stay
in. invest on dips and don't look
back.
Make your decision. Stick with
it and get out of your double-
bind. Get your power back!

REVIEW
See article on page 14


David Pearlman is a gifted
photographic artist wor-
king right here in Boca, and
"Empowered Women" is
the title of his newest se-
ries. Each image combines
a beautiful and powerful
woman with an equally
beautiful and powerful wil-


dlife element, carefully lay-
ered to create one exquisite
image. He specifically de-
signed these pieces of art to
represent strength and per-
severance. The forms of the
women are often, and quite
purposefully, challenging to
find; it is once you discover


them that the element of
"power" reveals itself in all
its beauty and glory.
His inspiration for this se-
ries came from working
with Theresa Lana on a
book, for the Susan G. Ko-
men Breast Cancer Foun-
dation, and her particular


journey with breast cancer.
Theresa is a stage 3, fi-
ve-year survivor of breast
cancer, and the founder of
"Team T-Bird" which tire-
lessly fundraises for the
foundation. Says David,
"You know, as artists do,
we get creative one day, we


have a thought that goes
through our minds, and we
start thinking 'what if we
did this with this, and jux-
taposed that with that', and
I started going over some
wildlife images that I had in

favorites. Our waiter, Ray
Stinchcomb, contributed his
thoughts as well and sug-
gested sampling of various
wines to accompany each
course. As there are 322
wines on their roster, we
relied on advice from this
wine educated and experi-
enced server who provided
us with a choice wine to
match our dining selections.
Our introduction to the
Capital Grille's appetizer
menu began with warm
Wagyu Beef Carpaccio
on a bed of arugula salad,
drizzled with lemon vin-
aigrette. Tasty prosciutto
wrapped mozzarella with
juicy vine ripe tomatoes
was followed by lobster
meat/crab meat cakes with
just a touch of filler to have
the true taste come through.
An order of cool, plump,
fresh oysters led to a spicy
pan-fried dish of calamari
with hot cherry peppers
that left a lingering hint of
spice on the palate. In addi-
tion smoked salmon, shrimp
cocktail, a cold shellfish plate


and a "Grand Plateau"(King
crab, lobster, shrimp cock-
tail and oysters) round out
this listing.
We reveled in the taste of
fantastic lobster bisque -
off the menu so rich and
creamy with chunks of
fresh lobster meat that we
were tempted not to just
sample but finish. A gi-
gantic 14 ounce crock of
French onion soup, enough
for three gourmets, proved
to be the finest possible of
this classic, a must for Fran-
cophiles. Next visit, we'll try
their cup of clam chowder as
well.
We sampled a Caesar salad
with a nice creamy dressing
over cut shards of crisp let-
tuce, then the fresh spinach
salad with a warm bacon
dressing, giving a pleasant
crunch to this tasty dish.
Fresh mozzarella and beef-
steak tomato slices with
leaves of basil was dressed
with a 12 year aged balsam-
ic vinegar a royal treat. A
"wedge" with bleu cheese
and applewood smoked
bacon, the Capital Grille's
own chopped salad and a
plate of field greens with
tomatoes and herbs are also
offered.
Chef Carmine's sugges-
tions include a seared ten-
derloin with butter poached
lobster- cedar planked sal-
mon with tomato fennel
relish- and a daily Chef's
seafood feature-all to test
on a later date. We did test
three steak choices- a bone-
in Kona crusted dry aged


14 ounce sirloin with shal-
lot butter, medium rare plus
a sliced 10 ounce filet mi-
gnon with Cipollini onions
and wild mushrooms done
on the rare side as well as
a Porcini rubbed 22 ounce
Delmonico with 12 year a-
ged balsamic vinegar pre-
pared medium. There is a
definite difference in these
three tastes, effected by the
cut and degree of doneness
though all were succulent
choices. Broiled lobster
meat with drawn butter was
paired with the steaks .The
Chef's "Main Courses" also
feature six additional steak
choices plus roasted chick-
en and double cut rib lamb
chops.
Five seafood offerings in-
clude lobster and crab
stuffed shrimp, seared cit-
rus salmon, sushi grade ses-
ame seared tuna with gin-
gered rice, grilled swordfish
with lemon shallot relish
plus lobsters ranging from
two to four pounds, done as
you wish.
Ten side dish offerings in-
clude our servers suggestion
of lobster mac'n'cheese,
roasted Cremini, Portabel-
la, Shiitake and Oyster
mushrooms and Vidalia
onion rings-with each por-
tion enough for two diners
and each portion rich and
delicious. One can also or-
der sauteed spinach,fresh
creamed spinach, mashed
potatoes, asparagus with
Hollandaise and French
green beans with roasted
tomatoes and fennel.


All fine dinners culminate
in sweet endings and here
we were favored with clas-
sic creme brulee-smooth,
cream and sensational, a
rich chocolate hazelnut
cake with a lovely, grainy
texture and a trio of restau-
rant-made ice cream flavors,
beautifully handcrafted. You
may wish to order their
fresh strawberries, a flour-
less chocolate espresso cake,
fruit sorbet, berries in vanilla
cream, coconut cream pie or
cheese cake with seasonal
berries.
Combine your dessert with


standard or specialty cof-
fees or teas, order any of
their extensive roster of
brandies, cordials, dessert
wines, ports, scotches and
whiskeys-revel in dinner
well done.
The Capital Grille at 6000
Glades Road (Town Center
Mall) in Boca Raton (561-
368-1077) is one of a chain
of 41 fine establishments.
It seats over 260 diners at
their bar, patio, kitchen rail
and main room. Open from
11:30AM to 4PM for lun-
cheon, Mondays through
Friday no luncheon ser-


vice on Saturdays or Sun-
days. Dinner from 4PM to
10PM Mondays through
Thursday, till 11PM on
Friday and from 5PM to
11PM on Saturdays and
5PM to 10PM on Sundays.
In conclusion, each and ev-
ery dish we sampled was,
in our opinion, the finest
in taste and texture, amply
portioned and most profes-
sionally served. Costing is
in relation to the quality of
food and service We urge
you to ... Go and enjoy!!


Dead Sea Scrolls to go digital


NEW YORK The Israel
Antiquities Authority (IAA),
in collaboration with the
Google R&D center in Is-
rael, has launched a unique
project to document the en-
tire collection of the Dead
Sea Scrolls in the Leon
Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Di-
gital Library.
Using the most advanced
and innovative technolo-
gies available to image
the entire collection of
900 manuscripts compri-
sing about 30,000 Dead
Sea Scrolls fragments in
high-resolution and multi
spectra, the IAA will make
the digitized images freely
available and accessible
to anyone anywhere in the
world on the Internet. This
is the first time that the col-
lection of Scrolls will be
photographed in its entirety
since the 1950's.
The IAA will also upload
additional data online that
will allow users to perform
meaningful searches across
a broad range of data in a
number of languages and
formats, which will result
in unprecedented scholarly
and popular access to the


Scrolls and related research
and scholarship, and should
lead to new insights into the
world of the Scrolls.
"What an amazing pro-
ject that makes a piece of
the Bible and Israel rea-
dily available to everyone,"
said Haim Gutin, Israel
Commissioner of Tourism,
North and South America.
"I do, however, urge you
to visit Israel, the land of
the Bible; because a visit to
Israel will change the way
you read your Bible. The
sights, sounds, smells, his-
tory, culture, and the people
will make your Bible come


alive in Israel."
Uploading the images
to the Internet will be
achieved with the assis-
tance of Google-Israel and
will be accompanied by
meta-data including trans-
criptions, translations, and
bibliography.
The announcement comes
after three years of research
in which the IAA inves-
tigated the best imaging
technologies, information
systems, and preservation
methods and raised the
necessary funds to begin
the project.

Local photographer supports breast cancer.


mind. There was one ima-
ge especially, and it was a
bald eagle that I had photo-
graphed in Alaska a couple
of years ago. It was co-
ming down and swooping a
fish out of the water, and I
wanted to use it to visually
swoop the breast cancer out
of the affected breast. I call
this shot "Freedom From
Breast Cancer", and it just
looked so good the way it
was positioned that I started
getting other ideas for other
animals and other women
that I had worked with. It
was almost inspirational, as
though I was being stirred
by some 'force' to do these."
Empowerment comes in
so many ways, shapes and
forms. It's not just about
cancer: it's about overco-


ming adversity, finding
the inner strength that you
have that maybe you don't
know that you have, and
that comes through in these
photographs. "Empowered
Women" is truly a phenom-
enal series, and one definite-
ly worthy of being defined
as art.
Twenty percent of the pro-
ceeds of each print of "Free-
dom From Breast Cancer"
that is sold will go to "Team
T-Bird", and 10% of all
other images in this collec-
tion will be donated to the
same cause. All images will
be signed and numbered.

ENTERTAINMENT

By Skip Sheffield


'Client 9,' Love You, Phillip Morris,


among Oscar contenders


December is the month so-
me of the serious contenders
are released for Oscar con-
sideration.
A telltale sign a movie is be-
ing considered for awards is
the receipt of a DVD from
the movie studio.
Both of the films I saw this
week were on DVD sent for
voting purposes in the two
film critics associations of
which I am a member.
"Client 9," showing at the
new Living Room Theaters
at FAU, is in the documen-
tary category. The title re-
fers to former New York
Attorney General and ex-
Governor Eliot Spitzer.
It is a sympathetic rise and
fall tale compiled by direc-
tor Alec Gibney, who evi-
dently felt Spitzer got a raw
deal when he was forced out
of office March 12, 2008 af-
ter admitting he had paid to
have sex with a prostitute.
If Spitzer had but one moral
offense he probably would
have been forgiven, but
news clips, interviews and
dramatizations show there
was a lot more to the story.


In director Gibney's view,
Spitzer was a victim of rich
and powerful enemies on
Wall Street and in the state
capital of Albany.
It is hard to feel sorry for
Spitzer. He was born into
wealth (his dad Bernard
was a real estate titan) and
privilege, and he was a
cocky, arrogant man.
Spitzer had the nerve to take
on insurance giant AIG be-
fore it imploded, challeng-
ing its CEO Hank Green-
berg and Dick Grasso, head
of the New York Stock Ex-
change. Spitzer also made
enemies of conservative
commentator Joe Stone and
all-powerful State Senate
leader Joe Bruno.
There is no doubt the dam-
aging evidence on Spitzer
and the tawdry Emperor's
Club was delivered to the
New York Times by his en-
emies, but the implication
that had Spitzer stayed in
office, the economic melt-
down might been averted
seems far-fetched at best.
"Client 9" is not about
sex. It's about power and


"I Love You,


Delray Beach Playhouse

thriller "Who Killed Santa
Claus" through Dec. 19 at

lice detective, Christopher

lanchine version, plays at

politics, and anyone who
doesn't realize it's a dirty
business is naive.
Still, "Client 9" is a fasci-
nating account of a very
smart man who should have
known better. It's a very
old tale. You can find it in
the Book of Genesis. This
is just a contemporary ver-
sion.

"I Love You Phillip Mor-
ris" based on a true story.
Jim Carrey plays Steven Jay
Russell, a one-time police
officer in Virginia Beach
who loved his wife (Leslie
Mann) and played the organ
at a local church.
Writer-directors Glenn Fi-
carra and John Requa begin
the story of Russell's death-
bed. He is feeling reflective
and somewhat penitent for
the pain he has brought oth-
ers, but not apologetic about
his change of life.
An adopted child, Steven
was obsessed about find-
ing his biological mother.
When he did find her and
was rejected, he went hay-
wire. After a car crash, Ste-
ven recognizes what has


been in the back of his mind
since childhood: he fancies
boys, not girls.
So of course Steven moves
to Miami and proceeds to
live the high life without
the means to support it.
That leads to fraud, decep-
tion, and ultimately prison,
where Steven meets the
love of his life, Phillip Mor-
ris, played by British actor
Ewan McGregor.
"Phillip Morris" goes light
on the boys in love stuff and
more on the absurd aspects
of Steven's preposterous
life. Jim Carry is both funny
and sincere. He does not
play with gay stereotypes.
He really is quite convinc-
ing as a guy who loves an-
other guy, and not just for
the sex.
Still "Phillip Morris" had
trouble getting financed and
distributed. It is Jim Car-
rey's bid to be taken seri-
ously while appealing to a
mainstream audience seek-
ing entertainment. We shall
see. **

The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL


AS SEEN BY FEEN

By Diane Feen

You don't have to be the master

of your domain to see Jerry Seinfeld


There aren't too many peo-
ple in the world more for-
tunate than Jerry Seinfeld.
He created one of the most
successful TV shows on the
planet, he has a wonderful
marriage and more money
than you could spend in
a lifetime. And, despite
the fact that he doesn't re-
ally have a day job (the
TV show "Seinfeld" halted
production years ago); he
always seems to be pretty
content.
Like everyone else with a
funny bone that needs oc-
casional stimulation, I try to
catch Seinfeld when I can.
I've seen him on the Oprah
Show twice, beaming from
the audience as his wife
touts her common sense
cookbooks. And occasion-
ally, he makes the rounds
of late night talk shows, al-
ways making us chuckle at
the absurdity of life's little
vignettes.
So, as a fan of epic propor-
tion I couldn't resist the
chance to see this legend-
ary funnyman in person
recently at the Ziff Ballet
Opera House in Miami.
The concert was not only
sold-out, but tickets were
selling on eBay for $1,000
(thoughts of new carpeting
for my bedroom swirled in
my head for a nanosecond).
As the lights went down I


wondered if all the success
and docile domesticity had
tamed the wilder instincts
of this comic genius. But,
luckily it hadn't. Seinfeld
is still the same funny fel-
low who charmed us for
nine years on his hilari-
ous TV show about noth-
ing. And luckily, for those
of us who hold Seinfeld
in the same esteem as the
Dalai Lama, it was a rave
success. We laughed until
we cried (some of us) and
marveled at how this native
New Yorker could make
the little things in life seem
so hysterically funny.
He made fun of everything
from star 69 (that was the
only number they could
think of?) to eBay (There's
a good idea. Let's just start
mailing our trash to one
another) and continued
in funny form about Star-
bucks, Facebook and mar-
riage.
"I am married 11 years but
I didn't get married until I
was 45. I had issues, but I
really enjoyed those issues.
I finally got married at the
Jesus Christ age; it's the
time when people say 'Je-
sus Christ, you're 45 and
not married."
As far as marriage goes
Seinfeld seems to have
reverence for the institu-
tion, but when on stage he


seemed to enjoy playing
with its often frayed edges.
"Being married is like liv-
ing on the floor of the Sen-
ate, every day a new law is
passed .... The hardest part
of being married is trying
to get through a day with-
out saying, 'I hate you."'
One thing for sure, it's hard
to imagine Jerry Seinfeld
hating anyone. He talked
about friends which I
imagine he has zillions of
(after all, he has a house
the size of the Metropolitan
Museum on Long Island).
"If you have four friends,
you're lucky; six friends is
tops, but with eight, every-
thing gets out of control."
He also couldn't help let-
ting us know that he has us
all figured out. "I know why
you all live in Florida, it's
so you can call your friends
up North and tell them how
wonderful the weather is


and how blue the water is.
You're all here because you
love the weather."
The Seinfeld character that
was bothered by every-
thing on TV seemed pretty
easy going in person. He
doesn't mind the weather (I
just put on a coat when it's
cold, he said), doesn't like
to buy a lot of new things
(why would I want to read
another one-inch manual)
and enjoys getting rid of
possessions. "People keep
things in storage so they
can visit their stuff every
month and say, 'some day
I'm going to get you out of
here.'"
Seinfeld, dressed in a tai-
lored business suit, had
us laughing in the aisles
with his take on drugs like
Cialis. "If you want to get
something going you don't
need two tubs, you take
a bath together. Not only
that, if you're going to lug
two steel tubs up a moun-
tain, of course you're going
to be too exhausted to per-
form."
We know Seinfeld can per-
form, and we know he can
make us laugh until tears
cloud our vision. Check out
his concert schedule at:

says it all, and
you just did. I'm
as precious as I
look and so ready
to be loved.
Just one year
old, I'm looking
forward to finding
YOU so we can have some
fun and then snuggle on
the couch.
I'm very mannerly


on my leash and I'm
housebroken. I'm a nice
boy who gets along well
with cats and other dogs.
I'll wait right here for you
to do the paperwork that
will make you mine.
I'm available for adoption
at Tri-County Humane
Society, a no-kill animal
shelter located at 21287
Boca Rio Road in Boca
Raton. The shelter is open
for adoptions Tuesday
through Sunday, 11 a.m. to

Included in the adoption
fee is one year of free
office visits to Regency
Veterinary Clinic.

pet or to consider adding a

FAITH
By Rick Warren




The Practice of Surrender


Struggling with tempta-
tions? Fed up with life?
Questioning God? If so,
and you need someone to
talk to, contact an online
mentor to talk privately.
"If people want to follow
me, they must give up the
things they want. They
must be willing even to
give up their lives to fol-
low me." Matthew 16:24
(NCV)
Paul's moment of surren-
der occurred on the Da-
mascus road after he was
knocked down by blinding
light. For others, less dras-
tic methods are needed to
get our attention. Regard-
less, surrendering is never
just a one-time event. Paul
said, "I die daily." (1 Cor-
inthians 15:31 NASB)
There is a moment of sur-
render and there is the
practice of surrender.
The practice of surrender
requires perseverance. It
is moment-by-moment
and lifelong. You may
have to re-surrender your
life fifty times a day: "If
people want to follow
me, they must give up the
things they want. They
must be willing even to


give up their lives [daily]
to follow me." (Matthew
16:24 NCV)
Let me warn you: When
you decide to live a to-
tally surrendered life, that
decision will be tested.
Sometimes it will mean
doing inconvenient, un-
popular, costly, or seem-
ingly impossible tasks. It
will often mean doing the
opposite of what you feel
like doing.
"Those who are living by
their natural inclinations
have their minds on the
things human nature de-
sires; those who live in
the Spirit have their minds
on spiritual things." (Ro-
mans 8:5 NJB)
We are, by nature, self-
centered. When hurt by
someone, your natu-
ral inclination is to hurt
back. It is natural to hoard
money instead of gener-
ously sharing it, to defend
yourself when criticized,
to hide your mistakes in-
stead of confessing them,
and to try to impress oth-
ers. You can usually figure
out what will please God
by doing the opposite of
your natural inclination.


Bill Bright founded Cam-
pus Crusade for Christ.
Through the worldwide
Crusade staff, his tract
The Four Spiritual Laws,
and the JESUS film (seen
by over one billion peo-
ple), it's estimated that
over 150 million people
have come to Christ and
will spend eternity in
heaven.
I once asked Bill, "Why
did God use and bless
your life so much?" He
said, "When I was a
young man I made a con-
tract with God. I literally
wrote it out and signed
my name at the bottom.
It said 'From this day for-
ward, I am a slave of Je-
sus Christ.'"
Have you signed a con-
tract like that with God?
Or, are you still arguing
and struggling with God
over his right to do with
your life as he pleases?
It is time to surrender -
to God's grace, love, and
wisdom.
Question: Have you ac-
cepted a life of surrender
to God's perfect will for
your life?

I Boca Raton Tribune supports small business


WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?
By Gerald Sherman



What management is all about


It's simply working with
your people, treating them
with respect, getting them
to go up the ladder to reach
greater goals. Giving orders
is not enough; help them be-
come champions, be there
when they need you and gi-
ve them the confidence that
they can do it! Give them the
tools and continually strive
to help them achieve greater
heights and successes. En-
courage them not to be afraid
to make decisions. And above
all, manage yourself Leaders
must demand high standards
of themsel-ves as well as
others.
The late Peter F Drucker has
been one of the leading ex-
perts on management and its
role regarding responsibili-
ty in the business arena for
over 50 years. He has been
called "the Father of mo-
dem management." Drucker
was an author, consultant
and teacher and his 29 books
have been published in many
languages[i]. In his books he
states that managers who
succeed must possess the
ability to not only manage
their subordinates, but must
have the ability to manage
themselves.
He talks about creating an
environment of trust. Goal
setting is also vital for the
manager. Drucker states that
managers must define the prob-
lem, find the answer, make
decisions and test the valid-
ity of the decisions against


the outcome.He points out
that the manager must un-
derstand her or his job in
order to make the proper de-
cisions. Knowing what their
responsibilities are and suc-
cessfully carrying them out
is a primary prerequisite for
the manager.
The Responsibilities, Func-
tions and Duties of a man-
ager are what we affectiona-
tely call "RFDs," (Sherman
& Perlman). Although the
manager has many different
RFDs, one of the primary
ones involves recognizing a
problem and making a deci-
sion on how to best deal with
it. Encouraging personnel to
be aware of marketplace
changes and communicating
these changes. Some exam-
ples of these changes may
be a shift in population, such
as younger consumers mo-
ving into a senior area, less
disposable income because
of increased unemployment,
or other demographic chan-
ges.
Monitoring the overall per-
formance of personnel in
order to determine if they
are performing their job and
achieving their goals requires
administrative skill.
The manager must function
as coach, motivator and prob-
lem solver. Managers must
be conscious at all times as to
the behavior and performance
of their people and deal with
any negative aspects as they
occur. Analyzing the activi-


ties of the staff that is falling
behind can alert the manager
as to what changes and what
positive reinforcement is ne-
eded to give the employee
more confidence in their job
performance. When a ma-
nager overcomes obstacles
or makes changes that may
affect their results, it adds to
productivity.
Procrastination is the road
to failure when things go
wrong, analysis and action
is the only way to find the
solution.
Communicating information
that results in successful out-
comes is an important part
of management. Getting the
subordinate to work more
efficiently by focusing on
problems and solutions is a
part of the manager's RFDs.
As we say, "every problem
becomes an opportunity if
we find the solution."

By Donovan Ortega

In the last year, the Boca
Raton Tribune has sent me
into the city to create ar-
ticles that support the com-
munity's small businesses.
The list is long and varied:
Bemie's Dry Cleaner, Ta-
lia's Tuscan table, Baba's
Shrimp Shack, Ruben's
Barber Shop, Bernie's
Dry Cleaners, WOW!ES,
Poser Home Saftey, and
Gallery 22 to name a few.
My experiences at these
businesses have been con-
sistently welcoming, gen-
erous, cordial, and candid.
To me, they represent the
character of Boca Raton
because the true spirit of
any city is embodied in its
businesses and the people
that run them. As the holi-
days get in full swing, it
is important to remember
the people that make our
city such a fantastic place
to work and live. Here are
some highlights from some
local business stories I've
done in the past year.
Bernie'Dry Cleaner
The owner's name is, yep,
you guessed it, Bemie. And
he's always at the front
desk. Our conversation in-
volved his business secret:
"Quality Goes in Before
the Garment Goes Out,"
which actually serves as
Bemie's tag line on the


BCT


company logo. I also got
a chance to see Bernie in-
teract with a long time cus-
tomer who had to "run" but
found a little time to chat.
And it's no wonder she did,
she'd been going to Ber-
nie's for twenty years. And
if the longevity of the busi-
ness isn't enough to give it
a shot, then come see Sam-
my, he's a twenty-two year
old white cockatoo. Bemie
sets up his cage outside
every morning. If you're
lucky, Sammy might even
talk to you.
Baba's Shrimp Shack
If you don't know Andy
Bennardo, he'll get to
know you. Walk into Ba-
ba's Shrimp Shack and
you'll be met by six foot
three, thick slab of a New
Yorker who will whip you
up a culinary masterpiece
while making you laugh
with his steady dose of Big
Apple shtick. That's what
happened to me, anyway.
And the foods fantastic. In
fact, I'd place this casual
little restaurant up against
any restaurant in Boca Ra-
ton in terms of bang for
your buck. Want to spend
ten bucks and get three in-
credible meals? Stop in at
Baba's Shrimp Shack and
ask for Andy.
WOW!ES
It's an upscale bar with
beautiful wait staff, cold

k 4W


beer, top shelf liquor, and
food that puts the homog-
enous sports bar chains to
shame. With drink specials
every night, karaoke, live
music and twenty-seven
high definition televisions,
WOW!ES is a local alter-
native to your run of the
mill watering hole. The ser-
vice is wonderful and the
food is incredible. I tried
the Snapper-a la- Naples. I
came back a week later and
ordered it again.
Ruben's Barber Shop
The good people at Ru-
ben's set me up with a hair-
cut and a shave. To be hon-
est, I've never left a barber
shop looking or feeling bet-
ter. It was my first straight
edge razor shave, and al-
though I was a bit nervous
around the neck, I was im-
pressed by the silkiness of
my usually stubbly skin.
Normal razors just do not
get as close as the straight
edge. Ruben's been in busi-
ness for over 31 years and
the walls of his shop show
it. Baseball memorabilia
lines the walls and if you
let yourself, you might feel
like you're getting a hair-
cut in New York City in the
1920's.

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


Boca Raton is a Feast for the Eyes


and a Mecca for Business


Recession? Business in Bo-
ca is Hot! People are still
flocking to the area to open
new businesses and others
are actually expanding.
Investments Limited has
leased more than a quarter
of a million square feet of
retail, office and warehouse
space to a wide variety of
businesses: restaurants, sa-
lons, spas, women's, men's
and children's boutiques,
yoga and ballet studios, fit-
ness centers, tutoring acade-
mies, jewelers, art galleries,
interior design and decor,
physicians and other medi-
cal specialists, law firms, fi-
nancial advisors, and much
more. With the most stylish
stores and the hottest dining
scene around, doing busi-
ness in Boca is definitely
exciting.
This can be attributed to a
number of factors, not the
least of which is the area's
demographics. Home to
tropical Florida beaches,
historic buildings, colle-
ge universities, and up-
scale shopping centers and
parks, residents and tour-


ists alike enjoy the cozi-
ness and intimacy offered
by Boca Raton's small city
atmosphere and Mediter-
ranean style architecture;
here one finds palm-lined
streets, fountains, buildings
adorned with balconies and
patios, colorful awnings
and a wealth of restau-
rants, specialty boutiques
and art galleries...perfect
for strolling, shopping and
the always fun pastime of
people-watching. Rich in
arts & culture, live enter-
tainment and special events
take place throughout the
year. In short, it is a "life-
style destination" that is at-
tractive to tourists and resi-
dents alike. The majority
of Boca Raton's residents
are affluent, well-educated
and active financially, civi-
cally and physically. They
have considerable discre-
tionary income, enjoy din-
ing out, attending plays
and concerts, travel, and
are avid shoppers. Many
work out regularly at a club
or exercise on a treadmill
or stationary bike at home,


play golf and tennis, go bi-
cycling and even practice
yoga. Enthusiastically in-
volved in their communi-
ties, they join charitable
organizations, work for po-
litical parties or candidates,
and participate in local civ-
ic issues.
Investments Limited is one
of the country's premier
real estate organizations.
They own a geographical-
ly diversified portfolio of
commercial properties and
residential communities,
including the famed mixed-
use development, Royal
Palm Place, which is home
to the popular weekly ra-
dio show "The Talk of The
Town" that is broadcast
"live" from the 5th floor
Clubhouse at the Residenc-
es on Saturday afternoons.
Investments Limited is
also an "Official Partner"
of the Florida Panthers and
BankAtlantic Center.
Glamour, elegance, and
sophisticated tastes... Boca
Raton is truly a feast for the
eyes and a mecca for busi-
ness.

Crist


What could be more excit-
ing than love? Living and
loving are two lifelong pro-
cesses intricately interwo-
ven. I will love for as long
as I live. I love the birds,
and the sunsets, and the
stillness of the lakes, and
the sounds of the waves on
the ocean. I love the sand
between my toes, the sun
on my skin, and the high
flying pelicans. I love the
smell of fresh brewed cof-
fee in the morning, choco-
late, and char-broiled salm-
on. I love phone calls from
my family, and I love help-
ing a friend. To me, living
and loving are inseparable.
Now, what about loving
one special person? How is
that different? You see, we
can love our parents, chil-
dren, pets, roses, cheese-
cake, symphonies, football
games and never exhaust
our capacity to love.
But "being in love" with
one special person is an al-
together different kind of
love which involves a dif-
ferent kind of energy.

HOW TO KEEP LOVE
ALIVE AT ANY AGE is
what I'd like to focus on.
One of our greatest person-
al challenges is to create the
love we want. People try
their best to love each oth-
er, but there is a lot of frus-


tration and disappointment.
The high divorce rates at-
test to that: 50% in 1st mar-
riages; sadly, 67% in 2nd
marriages; and a whop-
ping 74% in 3rd marriages!
These clues suggests that
even if you roll up your
sleeves and try your hardest
with your first marriage, it
becomes increasingly dif-
ficult as you move forward
to find lasting love. Please
don't be complacent.
It's one thing to fall in love,
but it's another thing to stay
in love. So, here is one key
feature of a healthy love
relationship: High Mutual
Regard. It is paramount in
keeping love alive. Treat
each other with respect,
value, and dignity. Avoid
criticizing one another in
public that is a form of
disregard. This type of be-
havior will not cultivate
your partner's admira-
tion, long term presence,
and leaves the door open
to infidelity. One phrase I
often here in my office is,
"My partner often puts me
down, criticizes me, or tries
to make me feel bad about
myself." Thoughtfulness
and consideration are im-
portant to feel safe and vul-
nerable with one another
under the auspices of high
mutual regard. Thoughtful
gestures can be as simple as
a quick love note scribbled
in the morning, or a lovely
card received in the mail
every couple of weeks but
you must write something
special in it, or it is mean-
ingless. A beautiful long-
stemmed rose across a bed
pillow one evening could
be an unusual surprise for
many. Be creative. What
would your partner like or
enjoy from you? Consid-


eration suggests opening
the door for her and pull-
ing out her chair. I am all
for women's rights, but I
am also very much a lady.
I am sure I am not the only
one who appreciates a kind
gentleman with etiquette.
Reciprocity would be offer-
ing a cold drink, getting the
mail everything applies to
whichever gender is more
comfortable doing so--just
make sure you do them fre-
quently. A high quality, de-
sirable, healthy, long term
relationship does not run
on auto-pilot.
Treat him or her as though
they are the most important
person in the world. This is
vital because to you, they
are!

impressive array of Pro-
fessional Titles include
6 Masters (1963, 1965,
1966, 1972, 1975, 1986),

Owls Men's Hoops Defeats USF 50-42


BOCA RATON, FL Junior
guard Alex Tucker scored a
career high 19 points and
the Florida Atlantic men's
basketball team defeated
USF 50-42 on Saturday
night.
The Owls (5-4) got out to
a quick start, taking a 13-4
lead just over six minutes
into the game, with Tucker
scoring six points during
the run. The margin never
dipped below four points
the rest of the half and
Tucker struck again, put-


ting in a layup with 18 sec-
onds left to make the score
24-18 at the half.
A Greg Gantt three-point
play early in the second
half put FAU up nine, but
USF rallied to pull within
two. The Bulls threatened
to tie the game on several
occasions, but were unable
to ever pull even. A three
point play by USF, cut the
lead to one with 3:13 re-
maining. Those would be
the last points of the night
for the Bulls. Tucker re-


sponded with a three-point
play of his own, that put the
lead back to four and free
throws down the stretch
sealed the win for the Owls.
The win in the second in
a row for the Owls over a
"Big Six" BCS conference
team. FAU entered the
week with just three wins
over those conferences in
program history.
FAU will now hit the road
for a five game road trip,
beginning on December 11
at Hofstra.


CRANK UP THE HEAT
By Pedro Heizer

Going Bananas for Banana

Man: The Most Interesting

Banana in the World


Proving that the greatest
mascots are home grown,
Banana Man has taken Mi-
ami, and much of the na-
tion by storm. Thanks to his
dancing antics at Heat games
and some amazing YouTube
Videos, fans and non-fans
alike are now going bananas
for Banana Man.
With a certain mystique
about him that clearly ma-
kes him the most interest-
ing banana in the world.
Banana Man doesn't speak
because bananas don't talk,
but he isn't there to talk,
here's there to dance!
When I first met the famous
banana man, he was still just
a regular crazy fan dressing
up in a banana suit. I first
saw him at the Lakers game
last season and I thought to
myself, "What a crazy guy,
I wish I had that idea" so I
saw him dance for a while,
then he disappeared. I again
saw him at a Detroit Pistons
game late last season and I
thought to myself, "\\o\\,
this guy is serious".
Now look at him. He's tak-
en the nation by storm! He
has proved that hard work


does pay off.
What is Banana Man? Ba-
nana Man not only repre-
sents a mascot, he repre-
sents the fans, the die-hard
fans who go to games night
in and night out and cheer
their team to victory.
He represents every single
fan in the NBA. He is the
mascot who just happened
to be in the right place at the
right time.
Banana Man rose to fame
with his amazing We Want
Wade campaign video and
he has been on the way ever
up ever since.
Since then, he created yet
another video for his three
best friends and both videos
have become instant You-


Tube sensations.
In his facebook fan page,
Banana Man has around
1,790 fans and it keeps
growing every day.
Where can you find the Ba-
nana Man? You can see him
all around the American
Airlines Arena doing his a-
mazing dances.
As he says in his HEAT.
cor profile, "The 'Chicken
Noodle Soup', the 'Wu-


Tang', the 'Dougie', and of
course the 'Peanut Butter
& Jelly"' are his special-
ties in the dancing category,
but don't be surprised if he
starts dancing the Dougie,
and the "John Wall" later on
this season.
So here's to you Miami
Heat Banana Man, you
brought pride the city of
Miami long before the "Big
Three" signed.
When all hope seemed lost
with Wade on his way to
Chicago, you and your vid-
eo were there to put a smile
on not only my face, but the
face of the entire HEAT na-
tion and for that I liiank \ ou
