Quote
of the Week
The beginning of wisdom
is this: Get[a] wisdom.
Though it cost all you
have, [b]get understanding.
Prov. 4:7

Paul Triviabits
By PaulPaquet
Beethoven wrote nine
symphonies. Big whoop.
Joseph Haydn wrote more
than a hundred sympho-
nies, many of which are
known by playful nick-
names. The Surprise Sym-
phony, for example, lulls
you to sleep before a
surprising full-orchestra
crash. Symphony No. 100
is the Military Sympho-
ny, No. 101 is the Clock
Symphony for its ticking
rhythm, and No. 103 is
called the Drumroll Sym-
phony because it begins
with a timpani.
Which of these is not
called the Four Seasons?

A) A brand of Chinese tea
B) A Canadian-based ho-
tel chain
C) A singing group led by
Frankie Valli
D) Four violin concertos

Safety tip from

Boca Raton Police


Boca Raton police safety tip
Q. I have seen some good deals on gift cards offered
over the Internet. Is it safe to purchase them?
A: Be careful when purchasing gift cards over the Inter-
net. Gift cards purchased through auction sites or clas-
sified ads could be fraudulent, causing you to lose your
money or purchases. If you are going to purchase gift
cards, it is safest to purchase gift cards directly from the
merchant or retail store.
Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from
the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information, visit

FAU receives $5.9 million grant to renew child welfare

workforce program


BOCA RATON Florida
Atlantic University has just
received a five-year grant
renewal of $5,975,000 for
a Title IV-E Child Welfare
Education Program from
Florida's Department of
Children and Families.
The money funds a pro-
gram designed to edu-
cate and train social work
graduates to work as child
welfare professionals.
FAU is serving as the lead
institution of the project.
Actually, said school of-
ficials, it is a collabora-
tive effort with other state
schools that are members
of the Florida Association
of the Deans and Directors
of the Schools of Social
Work (FADD): Florida
A&M University, Florida
International University,
Florida State University,
the University of Central
Florida, the University of
South Florida and the Uni-
versity of West Florida.
"We are so pleased to have
received this renewal grant
from Florida's Department
of Children and Families,"
said FAU President Dr.
Mary Jane Saunders. "This
type of program is a win-
win situation for students
and for local agencies
responding to our com-
munity needs. This grant
will help educate and train
social workers who will be
able to work with the com-
plex needs of children in
foster care and adoption."
Students accepted into the
program will obtain spe-
cialized professional train-


ing in child welfare, with
opportunities for post-
graduation employment,
which will then enable lo-
cal agencies to hire quali-
fied child welfare profes-
sionals.
As part of the collabora-
tive nature of the grant,
the deans of social work
from the participating uni-
versities will work with
Florida's Department of
Children and Families to
develop budget, policies
and curriculum. All the
schools will receive mon-
ey to hire one to two facul-
ty members whose duties
include working individu-
ally with stipend students
and teaching specialized
child welfare courses.
In addition, the program
offers internships in foster
care and adoption agen-
cies. After completion of
the stipend program, stu-
dents have a requirement
of employment for one
year in a child welfare
agency.
"We are at a time when
there are many urgent so-
cial problems facing our
country and the global
world, including poverty,
child abuse and neglect,
family violence, under-
funded schools and so-
cial welfare programs,
and unemployment, to
name a few," said Michele
Hawkins, Ph.D., principal
investigator of the Title
IV-E Child Welfare Edu-
cation Program and direc-
tor and professor of the
School of Social Work in


FAU's College for Design
and Social Inquiry.
"To address the growing
needs of our communities
and the challenges they
are facing, it is critical that
we train professionals in
the areas of child welfare
and other social services.
Graduate-level trained
social workers provide
more mental health ser-
vices than psychologists,
psychiatrists or any other
mental health profession
in the U.S."
Hawkins is spearheading
the program with Patricia
Scott, M.S.W., the state-
wide program coordinator,
and Xiaowen Ma, M.B.A.,
the statewide budget coor-
dinator at FAU.
The Department of Chil-
dren and Families is one of
the state agencies charged
with assisting abused and
neglected children. Ac-
cording to the department,
in Florida each year, be-
tween 9,000 and 10,000
children are removed from
their homes because they
experienced neglect or
abuse by a family member.
Through programs like the
Title IV-E Child Welfare
Education Program, today,
there are 10,000 fewer
children in foster care than
three years ago. In No-
vember 2009, the number
of Florida children in fos-
ter care was 19,229 com-
pared to 29,255 in Decem-
ber 2006.
To help meet these de-
mands in South Florida
and beyond, the School of


Social Work at FAU offers
two programs of study, one
leading to a Bachelor of
Social Work and the other
leading to a Master of So-
cial Work. The school is
headed by Hawkins whose
practice experience in-
cludes school social work,
legislative policy, couples
therapy and work with
adults. She previously
served on faculty at the
National School of Social
Service at Catholic Uni-
versity, Washington, DC
and the University of Or-
egon.

BOCA RATON State
Rep. Bill Hager (R- Boca
Raton) has signed on as a
co-sponsor to the Florida
Health Care Freedom Act
(HJR 1) sponsored by Rep-
resentative Scott Plakon
(R-Longwood).
The Health Care Freedom
Act proposes an amend-
ment to the state constitu-
tion that prohibits Florid-
ians from incurring fines
and penalties if they choose
to opt out of the national
healthcare plan passed by
Congress last year.


"We must work to provide
greater access to afford-
able healthcare for all Flo-
ridians." Hager said. "The
answer, however, will not
be found by rescinding
our personal freedoms and
forcing all Floridians into
a one-size-fits-all plan cho-
sen by the federal govern-
ment."
If the Senate and the House
pass the Florida Health
Care Freedom Act by a
two-thirds majority, the
proposal will be placed on
the ballot in 2012.


Police accuse mother of leaving kids in

car while getting her hair done


BOCA RATON Local
police recently arrested a
35-year-old mother for al-
legedly leaving her three
children alone in a car at a
busy shopping area while
she had her hair done, po-
lice said.
The call to police came
from a security guard at East
Coast Jewelry, 4251 North


Federal Highway, said the
report. The guard was do-
ing a routine security check
in the parking lot when he
saw three small children in
a white Toyota minivan.
Upon arrival, Officer John
Cagno noticed the three
children in the car. The po-
lice report said he asked the
oldest girl, age 5, to unlock
the door. Once the door
was open, Officer Cagno
asked the 5-year-old about
her mother's location. The
girl said she was inside Lu-
igi's Hair Salon getting a
haircut.
The girl identified the other
two children as her 3-year-
old brother and 10 month
old sister. All three children
were watching a DVD. The


car was locked and the keys
were in the ignition. The
sunroof was open about 10
inches, said police.

Officer Cagno stayed with
the children until the moth-
er, Ana Cecilia Pazmino of
1070 NW 3rd Ave., Boca
Raton, returned nearly 20
minutes later.
When asked by Officer
Cagno why she left the
children unattended in the
car, police said she had no
response. The children's
father, Francisco Moreno,
arrived and took custody of
the children.
Pazmino was charged with
three counts of child ne-
glect.

December 23 through December 29, 2010 Edition 27 5


The Boca Raton Tribune wants to start a tradition in which every year for our Christmas edition of the paper, we will publish this historic piece of writing to
remind us of the true meaning of Christmas, to remind us of the innocence and pureness of the Christmas season.


Yes, Virginia, there is a


SSanta Claus







c Eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote a letter to the editor of New York's
A, C/WUo? Sun, and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial Sept. 21,
1897. The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since
become history's most
reprinted newspaper editorial, appearing in part or whole in dozens of lan-
guages in books, movies, and other editorials, and on posters and stamps.

-4arbL i VoorE't B n -n
September 21, 1897
VIRGINIA,your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skep-
ticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except [what] they see. They
think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds.
All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this
great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as
compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence
capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and
gene-rosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your
life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there
were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There
would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this
existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal
light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus!You might as well not believe in fairies! You
might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve
to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down,
what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there
is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither
children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of
course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive
or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside,
but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor
even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear
apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain
and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah,
VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank God! He lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years
from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will con-
tinue to make glad the heart of childhood.


Confessions for the Holidays
By Ben Stein h Dec 15, 2006
*The following was written by Ben
Stein and recited by him on CBS
Sunday Morning Commentary, De-
cember 18, 2005.

Here at this happy time of year, a
few confessions from my beating
heart:

I have no freaking clue who Nick and Jessica are.
I see them on the cover of People and Us constantly when
I'm buying my dog biscuits. I still don't know. I often
ask the checkers at the grocery stores who they are. They
don't know who Nick and Jessica are, either. Who are
they? Will it change my life if I know who they are and
why they've broken up? Why are they so darned impor-
tant?
I don't know who Lindsay Lohan is either, and I don't
care at all about Tom Cruise's baby.
Am I going to be called before a Senate committee and
asked if I'm a subversive? Maybe. But I just have no clue
who Nick and Jessica are. Is this what it means to be no
longer young? Hm, not so bad.
Next confession: I am a Jew and every single one of my
ancestors was Jewish, and it does not bother me even a
little bit when people call those beautifully lit-up, beje-
weled trees Christmas trees.
I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against.
That's what they are Christmas trees. It doesn't bother
me a bit when people say 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't
think they're slighting me or getting ready to put me in
a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we're all
brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year.
It doesn't bother me one bit that there's a manger scene
on display at a key intersection at my beach house in
Malibu.
If people want a creche, fine. The menorah a few hun-
dred yards away is fine, too. I do not like getting pushed
around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like
getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people
who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed
around, period. I have no idea where the concept came
from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't
find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved
down my throat. Or maybe I can put it another way.
Where did the idea come from that we should worship
Nick and Jessica and aren't allowed to worship God as
we understand him? I guess that's a sign that I'm get-
ting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering
where Nick and Jessica came from and where the Ame-
rica we used to know went to.

Cards and carols they make the


holidays bright


I love to send Christmas
cards. You know, the ones
you can hold in your hands,
the ones that arrive in
the mailbox with holiday
stamps and other decora-
tions.
I know, in this era, e-cards
are all the rage. I've received
several already, and I must
admit, they run the gamut
from beautiful to outra-
geous. My niece, Tracy,
in Massachusetts always
sends e-cards, for example.
Several of our friends here
in Florida do the same.
One very cute one arrived
the other day. It required a
level of interactivity that
is, helping little animals
build a snowman.
Maybe I'm just stuck in the
old Currier and Ives period.
I feel a little like Charlie
Brown going to the mail-
box to send his greetings.
That brings me to the
o-ther topic of this col-
umn Christmas carols. I
know that several Florida
radio stations play holi-
day selections throughout
the season. It seems they
start playing holiday tunes
around the Fourth of July,
but it couldn't be that long.


I have heard Brenda Lee
singing "Rockin' Around
the Christmas Tree" about
47 times, and my patience
is being tested.
I do wonder where the leg-
endary songs of the future
will come from. There are
already so many carols that
define the Christmas sea-
son: Bing Crosby's "White
Christmas," Nat Cole's
"The Christmas Song" and
Gene Autry's "Here Comes
Santa Claus."
I must admit, I'm amused
by Madonna's "Santa
Baby," and "Grandma Got
Run Over by a Reindeer" is
just plain silly something
that might have come up on
"Hee Haw."
I was surprised to learn the
other day that the Number
1 seller of holiday music is
Manheim Steamroller. A
radio personality said the
syntho-pop/rock group led
by Chip Davis had even
outsold Elvis, the Number
2 holiday sales setter.
Through all of this, I still
stick to a decision I made
more than 30 years ago
that the funkiest Christmas
song ever made is the Bing
Crosby David Bowie


rendition of "Little Drum-
mer Boy." Bing is crooning
away about the little kid
with the drum while Bow-
ie, in his best Ziggy Star-
dust way, is semi-singing
about ending war.
Oh, yeah, one last thing. I
was recalling the first time
I ever heard Bobby Helms'
song, "Jingle Bell Rock." I
was 10 years old and get-
ting a haircut at Rocco's
Barber Shop when it was
played on the radio.
My wife wonders why I
remember these things and
forget what I did five min-
utes ago.

The holiday spirit
Speaking of the little wom-
an, we took in a couple of
shows to get into the spirit.
We saw "The Nutcracker"
at the Kravis Center. Great


performance by the Miami
City Ballet. It has made a
ballet fan out of me, though
I get pains in my toes just
watching them dance en
pointe.
Also, and this is not nec-
essarily holiday oriented,
we took in a performance
of "Nabucco," also at the
Kravis.
It tells the story of the pow-
er-hungry King of Babylon
who provokes the wrath
of God in a battle for the
throne with his daughters.
It was Verdi's first operatic
success, the program said.
It gave us an opportunity to
see several stars of the Met-
ropolitan Opera: Sebastian
Catana (Nabucco), Laura
Vlasak Nolen (Fenena),
Adam Diegel (Ismaele)
and Harold Wilson (High
Priest of Baal). All great.

And speaking of great, ha-
ve a great Christmas!

THOUGHTS FROM THE

PUBLISHER

By Douglas Heizer

Jesus Christ is the reason

for the Christmas season


Christmas is getting closer
and closer. Have you no-
ticed the level of prepara-
tion?
Shoppers are crowding the
stores hoping to get one fi-
nal present for a son, daugh-
ter, wife or other relative or
friend.
At the supermarkets, the
shelves are packed with in-
gredients for fancy meals
- boxes of stuffing, cans of
pumpkin pie filling, and
containers of pre-made
mashed potatoes.
But are Christians going
to church in larger num-
bers? Are they taking part
in church-sponsored carol
sings, Christmas plays and
tree decorating?
More important, are they
taking time to meditate and


pray to God as Christians
prepare to mark the birth of
his Son?
How many Christians have
visited the house of God
lately to hear the beauti-
ful story of the Virgin Mary,
and how she gently and cou-
rageously accepted the re-
sponsibility of carrying the
Son of God in her womb?
In the midst of holiday mu-
sic, one can hear the tender
and heartfelt songs about
the birth of Christ: "0 Holy
Night," "Mary, Did You
Know?" and "Away in a
Manger."
Christmas is a time for joy.
It's the one day of the year
when troubles can be set
aside.
And it's the one day that
Christians must give their


attention to the Savior.
Yes, it's all right to buy toys
and gifts, to enjoy rich foods
and candies, to sing secular
songs and build snowmen,
hang candy canes on trees
and watch football.
But Christians believe none
of this would be possible
without the arrival of Christ
two millennia ago to show
us that death is not the end
of our existence and to de-
clare that we have a place to
spend eternity that is won-
derful and holy.
That's the message of
Christmas. Please don't
forget it. Even if you take
a few moments away from
your celebration, don't let
the day go by without giv-
ing thoughts and thanks to
Our Lord.


POSITIVE LIVING
By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.



Not Everything Can Be Instant!


In contemporary society,
many people have become
accustomed to accom-
plishing quite a few things
instantly. Very often, just
pressing a button or clap-
ping one's hands, will bring
the desired result right
away.
People are offered instant
credit, photos are devel-
oped instantly, or while
one briefly waits, we drink
instant coffee, and ingest
many instantly-prepared
foods and, through a mul-
tiplicity of television chan-
nels, we can access instant
entertainment and news.
Information today is lit-
erally at one's fingertips.
Examples can easily be
multiplied, each illustrating
the unlimited possibilities
available in our push-but-
ton society.
Although much of that can
be beneficial for us, a prob-


lem it creates is the false
expectation that other is-
sues may also be resolved
in great speed. Even though
rapidity may denote prog-
ress in many situations, it
would mean total disaster
in others. We need to learn
the difference, and employ
genuine understanding as
we confront a diversity of
issues and options in life!
Many of the things that
count most, take time.
The birth of a human oc-
curs only after the usual
nine months in a mother's
womb; friendships are de-
veloped over a lengthy pe-
riod, as rapport and confi-
dence are built, and as each
individual unveils his or
her true self to the other.
Illnesses, likewise, must
follow a certain pattern, in
spite of medications used,
before full healing becomes
a reality; journey can only


occur within the time-frame
necessary for its realiza-
tion; any problem cannot
be instantly swept under a
rug, but it requires thought-
ful, and often lengthy, con-
centration and action for its
resolution.
We all need a lifetime to
learn the lessons that each
new day would teach us.
Everybody must exer-
cise wisdom and patience
which every situation re-
quires of us.
Even if God keeps you
waiting for an answer lon-
ger than you may desire,
His meaning is to give you
not just anything, but the
best thing, at the right time!
Nevertheless, He never
postpones the outpour-
ing of His blessings; they
always follow His divine
schedule and appointment!

Due to a mechanical problem with his sleigh, Boca Raton

The children and Santa went to the offices where the team

The first annual Fedstock
festival by the Jewish Fe-
deration of South Palm
Beach County was a roar-
ing success last weekend
at the Count de Hoernle
Amphitheater in Mizer
Park.
Modeled on the histori-
cal Woodstock festival of
1969, these "two days of
love and nachas" (translat-
ed as "pride") drew Boca
residents in their hundreds
to the amphitheater for this
weekend-long celebration
of the Jewish faith.
Hasidic Jewish performer,
Matisyahu, headlined the
first night of the event,
performing his world-fa-
mous reggae-inspired rap


'Culture & Cocktails' event
Resort & Club. Cafe Boulud will serve
* The next Culture & Cock- complimentary beverages
tails event will be held and an array of specially
at Cafe Boulud in Palm prepared hors'd'oeuvres. A
Beach on Monday, January cash bar and free valet park-
10, and the topic will be:
Sight and Sound.
* All Culture & Cocktails
events are free for mem-
bers of the Cultural Coun-
cil ($175 level and above).
The price for everyone else
is $35 per person, with all
proceeds going to the non-
profit Palm Beach County
Cultural Council.
The event will run from 5
to 7 p.m., with registration
and cocktails from 5 to
5:45 p.m., and the "Con-
versation" from 5:45 to 7
p.m., including audience Cherie Golden
Q&A.


and hip-hop music to an ec-
static crowd. He sang with
unfailing energy for almost
two straight hours to de-
lighted fans.
Besides crowd-pleasing fa-
vorites, like "One Day" (the
official song of this year's
Winter Olympic games in
Canada), Matisyahu trea-
ted the crowd to several
new tracks, like Sunshine,
which he deemed particu-
larly appropriate for us Flo-
ridians!
During the second day
of the festival, tents were
erected on the grass around
the amphitheater for some
daytime festivities. Local
organizations from art-
ists and churches, to food
vendors and businesses -
shared information, while


a band jammed on-stage
as people wandered in and
out. Children's activities in-
cluded games and contests,
geared towards the event's
themes: love and nachas.
To finish Fedstock in style,
world-famous singer and
Jewish activist, Dudu Fisch-
er, performed to a sold-out
amphitheater on Sunday
night. Besides his well-
loved songs, Dudu enter-
tained the crowd with jokes
and anecdotes; "'Come and
enjoy the Florida sun,' said
my manager when I agreed
to come to Fedstock. Well,"
jokes the singer, "where is
it?"
Throughout this event the
Woodstock influence was
reflected, not only in the
psychedelic tie-dye shirts


ing are also available. Inter-
ested people can RSVP by
calling the Cultural Council
at 561.472.3330.

also in the general air of joy
and peace that pervaded the
amphitheater throughout
the weekend.

FOOD REVIEW

Wild Olives Funny Name Serious Dining


Located at 5050 Town Cen-
ter Circle in the rear of the
Center's walkway, this year
old club-like restaurant fea-
tures cuisine by celebrity
Chef Todd English as inter-
preted by Boca Chef Jamie
Pruitt.
We reviewed six out of
the nine appetizers offered
including a Boston Bibb
salad with shaved red on-
ion, mache toasted walnut
dressing and maytag bleu
cheese- it's sweet and fla-
vorful, a very nice taste
and texture. Olives' Caesar
salad with eggless dressing
we found to be too light for
true Caesar taste to come
through.
Yellowfin tartare with cu-
cumber salad and some
crispy shrimp was smooth
and tasty with sesame
dressing. Wild Olives' Car-
pet Bagger oysters with
beef carpaccio, whipped
truffle potatoes and scal-
lions was a fantastic treat
not be missed. Crispy ca-
lamari was not too spicy
with its chipotle aioli and
tomato picante but had a
tangy flavor. In contrast,
the Braised Mussels small
Prince Edward bivalves -
featured calebrese peppers
and spicy roasted tomato
broth put over garlic brus-
chetta, it was an open-faced


sandwich, spicy and with a
lovely after bite- wow!
The menu lists fifteen items
as antipasto ingredients -
the Chef's antipasto choice
serves 2 to 4, the family
style antipasto serves 6 to
8, mix and match.
Pasta, pasta, pasta as en-
trees, three variations are
presented we chose the
Old School Bolognese a
great tasting, hugh dish of
tagliatelle with pork, beef
and veal bolo and fontina
cr6ma that would make an
Italian Grandma smile -
exceptional! Likewise, the
lobster ravioli large pasta
pillows filled with sweet
meat, featuring peas, grape
tomatoes and a great, rich
lobster cr6me wonderful.
We tried potato gnocchi
with spicy shrimp, lump
crabmeat and arugula, to-
mato and a fine aglio e olio,
lovely. We could not taste
the Spaghetti Polpetinni
"Brooklyn Style" but will
be sure to do so at a later
date.
Four fish listings include
sweet pan-seared Diver
scallops served with pars-
nip puree, frisee and orange
salad, shaved fennel, crispy
pancetta and toasted pista-
chios a perfect marriage of
flavors to savor. You must
try the crispy hog snapper


with saffron rice, mussels,
shrimp, chorizo and green
peas- it's most tender and
tasty, a real winner.
We must return to try their
salmon with its horserad-
ish potato puree, prosciutto
lardons and escarole in
roasted tomato burro fusso
and the wasabi crusted
tuna with shrimp fried rice,
nori confetti, ginger carrot
puree in a sweet soy re-
duction. These dishes hold
great promise.
We were told that the slow
braised short ribs was com-
fort food personified true
- especially with the sweet
pea risotto, pearl onions
and cranberry gremoulata
- a must try! The king of
steaks is the rib-eye and
we had these brown sugar
cured slices both medium
rare and medium each do-
ne as requested, each tender
and surrounded with silky
parmesan whipped pota-
toes, bacon braised brussels
sprouts in a veal jus. There
is none better. We were not
able to try the filet mignon
or the bone-in chicken cac-
ciatore or the boneless pork
loin as listed.
By the way, Wild Olives
has a roster of six starters
listed as "signature flat-
breads" We were temped
to try a crispy rosemary

ENTERTAINMENT

By Skip Sheffield


The Fighter' is no ordi

boxing movie


Boxing has never appealed
to me, so if I like a movie
about boxing, it must really
be good.
Such is the case with "The
Fighter," starring Mark
Wahlberg and Christian Ba-
le as pugilist brothers and
Melissa Leo as their battle-
axe mom.
"The Fighter" isn't so
much about boxing as it is
about family, the pitfalls
of fame, love and loyalty.
Directed by David O. Rus-
sell ("Three Kings"), "The
Fighter" is distinguished by
extraordinary performances
by Wahlberg, Bale and Leo
and the biggest surprise of
all, Amy Adams as a tough-
talking bad girl with a heart
of gold.
"The Fighter" is inspired by
the real-life story of Low-
ell, Mass., Welterweight
fighter Micky "Irish" Ward,
played by Mark Wahlberg.
I had never heard of Micky
Ward (I'm not a boxing fan,
remember?), but evidently
he is somewhat of a legend
in New England.
The story is set in 1993 in
the depressed and depres-
sing industrial town of Lo-
well, Mass. Dicky Ecklund
(Bale) is the older half-bro-
ther of Micky and a former
contender himself. His big-
gest claim to fame is that he
once knocked down Sugar
Ray Leonard.
Dicky now acts as Micky's
trainer, but reliability is not
his strong suit. As he did
in "The Machinist," Bale
dropped a lot of weight to


play his twitchy, edgy, at-
tention-deficit character.
There is a reason for this we
soon learn. Dicky is a crack
addict. His domineering
mother (Leo in a tough-as-
nails performance) loves
Dicky so much neither she
nor her six daughters see
the obvious signs.
Dicky's weakness is readily
apparent to Charlene (Amy
Adams), a foul-mouthed
college dropout who now
works as a bartender.
Charlene immediately ta-
kes a shine to hunky Micky,
but she is met with instant
hostility from the hovering
Ward sisters and their ty-
rannical mom.
When Dicky ends up in
prison after an idiotic,
drug-addled crime caper,
Charlene sees her chance
to wean Micky away from
the poisonous family that
is holding him back. Micky
begins training with a fami-
ly friend, Mickey O'Keefe
(who portrays himself), an
upstanding guy who is also
a cop.
At first it seems Micky is
going nowhere, but then
he unexpectedly defeats a
stronger, heavier opponent
and gets a shot at a title fight
in Las Vegas.
It is at this point that the
movie begins to resemble
"Rocky," but it is a lot dee-
per than that.
Christian Bale will most
certainly be nominated for
an Academy Award for
his tragic-comic loser. I
wouldn't be surprised to see


Amy Adams rec

When the skirt-chasing

cides to cut his prima bal-
lerina Beth (Winona Ryder)
from a production of "Swan
Lake," Nina has a chance to
step up to the big time. Ah,
but the company's newest
member, Lily (Mila Kunis)
has her eye on the prize too,
and she will do just about
anything to get it.
The problem, as Thomas
Leroy sees it, is that while
Nina is perfect for the


nomination
time.


Somewhere

"Somewhe-
re" is the
latest from r
writer-di-
rector Sofia
Coppola,
whose ferti-
le imagina-
tion gave
us "Lost in
Translation." Mark W
Stephen Dorff
plays a lost character: play-
boy actor Johnny Marco,
who doesn't realize how
lost he is.
It will take a surprise visit
from his 11-year-old daugh-
ter Cleo (Elle Fanning) and
a sudden dose of responsi-
bility before Johnny will
realize how irresponsible,
self-centered and infantile
he has been.
As it says in the Old Testa-
ment Book of Isaiah: "And
a child shall lead us," and
so Cleo leads Johnny to
self-realization, resisting


Tahlberg in "The Fighter"

all the way.
Director Coppola has made
an astute choice in little
Elle Fanning, who conveys
a maturity far beyond her
years.
But "Somewhere" is essen-
tially a comedy, and John-
ny's transition is played for
laughs, yet with a gentle
reminder of the more seri-
ous issues beneath the light
comedy. It's a rather neat
trick from Ms Coppola,
who knows a thing or two
about human nature.

great companion for a re-
tired person who can sho-
wer me with attention in a

The Costliest Christmas Gift


This year, as it happened
in previous Christmas cel-
ebrations, anywhere in the
world, several people will
be extravagant in their
giving of presents to fam-
ily, relatives and even close
friends. Some persons will
spend a lot in the purchase
of the presents they plan
to give to special people in
their lives.
Obviously, there is nothing
wrong with lavish giving.
There need not to be any
limitations in one's spend-
ing if the resources are
there, and if the recipient
of a gift is truly worthy of
the same. And though giv-
ing of gifts can and does
occur at any season of the
year, Christmas is primarily
a time when such gift ex-
changes occur with greater
consistency and intensity.
It affects all age levels and
every strata of society!
From a monetary stand-
point, very expensive items
shall always be given and
received. Nevertheless, no
human gift will ever super-
sede the costliest Christmas
gift ever provided. No indi-
vidual, no corporation, no
combined team of billion-
aires could ever afford the
gift I'm speaking about.


The costliest Christmas
gift ever produced and pro-
vided cannot be matched
by any other in the entire
universe. It's impossible to
be surpassed in significance
and in value. In fact, the
wealthiest person of any
generation will be totally
incapable in purchasing it,
or duplicating its extrava-
gant cost!
Such gift came not just for
one person but for many.
For ages it had been prom-
ised; for centuries also it
has been offered, and shall
continue to be provided.
What is most amazing is
that this gift, in spite of its
unsurpassable cost, is made
available indiscriminately
to any person anywhere in
the world rich or poor,
young or old, educated or
illiterate, powerful or very
humble!
Obviously, I am referring
to a gift which has been
rejected by so many, not
on account of its high cost,
but due to people's lack of
understanding of what it
represents and what it can
do for them both in this life
and in the life to come.
Jesus Christ is that gift -
God incarnate, God with
us, the promised Messiah,


the only and all-sufficient
Savior of the human race.
That extravagant gift was
provided by God the Fa-
ther on that first Christmas
day. His only begotten Son,
Jesus, came down to earth,
for the sake of the world,
with a specific mission
which He faithfully ful-
filled later on, culminating
at Calvary's cross! While
other gifts break or decay,
God's Christmas gift to us
lasts forever!
As the apostle John indi-
cated, "He came to His
own and His own did not
receive Him. But as many
as received Him, to them
He gave the right to be-
come children of God, even
to those who believe in His
Name!" (John 1:11-12).
The gift is still being of-
fered. It's free though cost-
ly; it has no competitors
or substitutes. It cannot be
bought nor exchanged, but
with urgency and gratitude
it can be personally appro-
priated. Its possessors are
promised abundant life on
earth and life everlasting
with God in heaven! Be
sure you don't miss this un-
speakable gift now. Some
other time may be too late
to claim it!

* As he pushed a cart con-
taining all his belongings,
no one could have guessed
what was about to take
place when they saw a
homeless man arrive at the
front door of the Animal
Care and Control shelter
with two dogs in tow. Staff
watched as Richard, aka
"Florida," delivered more
than 1,000 pounds of dog
food. He arrived with his
dogs Brutus and Lila, who
all walked from 6th Avenue
South and Congress Av-
enue to the shelter located
at 7100 Belvedere Road,
west of the Florida Turn-
pike. Richard made the 10-
mile trek to donate food for
the homeless dogs in the
shelter. This well-known
man, who has no home, was
given dog food by gener-
ous dog lovers and walked
all the way to Animal Care
and Control to make a do-
nation for the shelter dogs.
He said he welcomed the
opportunity to help home-
less animals in need. After
all, 'tis the season for giv-
ing. After making his dona-
tion and wishing everyone
"happy holidays" with a
big smile, Richard began
the barefoot journey back
to Lake Worth. We can all
learn a lesson from this
compassionate man, for an-
gels indeed walk among us.
We just have to look with
kinder eyes to see them.

A very Merry Christmas to
all who celebrate the holi-
day with their friends and
loved ones.

Many food, beverage firms are

advertising healthier foods for kids


By Better Busi-
ness Bureau


A recently relea-
sed progress re-
port shows that
the companies
participating in
the Children's
Food and Bever- 'SF
age Advertising
Initiative (CFBAI)
continued to dem-
onstrate excellent compli-
ance with their pledges to
advertise healthier foods to
kids under 12.
The CFBAI progress report
was issued by the Council
of Better Business Bureaus,
which is responsible for
program administration and
oversight of pledge compli-
ance.
The report for 2009 shows
that through reformulation
and innovation, the leading
food and beverage manu-
facturers participating in the
CFBAI continue to achieve
steady progress in promot-
ing pro-ducts to kids that are
better for them.
"The Children's Food and
Beverage Advertising Ini-
tiative was intended to be
a dynamic program that
would encourage partici-
pants to raise the bar when
marketing foods to kids,"
said Elaine Kolish, vice
president of the Council of
Better Business Bureaus
and Director of the CFBAI.
"Our unique self-regulation
effort continues to show
steady progress with many
significant enhancements
and tightening of program
requirements."
As highlighted in the re-


port, the following has been
achieved:
Increased Participation. Post
Foods joined in 2009 and
Sara Lee joined as the 17th
participant earlier this year.
Excellent Pledge Compli-
ance. Pledge compliance in
2009 was excellent. There
were only a handful of in-
stances where non-CFBAI
approved products appeared
in advertising to children.
These minor problems we-
re detected and resolved
quickly.
Expanded Program Scope.
An extensive review that
CFBAI conducted in 2009
resulted in several signifi-
cant program changes. CF-
BAI now requires that par-
ticipants devote 100 percent
of children's advertising to
"better for you" products,
up from the original 50
percent requirement. The
participants' commitments
now also cover child-direct-
ed ads in new and emerging
media, such as child-di-
rected interactive games in
all formats, mobile media,
DVDs of G-rated movies
and DVD content primarily
directed to kids and word of
mouth advertising.
Substantial Harmonization


of Definition of
Advertising pri-
manly Directed
to Children un-
der 12. As a re-
sult of changes
earlier this fall,
virtually all par-
ticipants will be
using a thresh-
old no higher
than 35 percent
children 2-11 in
the audience to define child-
directed advertising.
Additionally, the report
notes the ongoing improve-
ment in the nutritional pro-
file of foods that CFBAI
participants advertise to
kids. CFBAI's review of TV
advertising directed to kids
on 38 hours of children's
programming in 2010
found:
* 75 percent of the ads were
for products that provided at
least 10 percent of the Daily
Value of one nutrient that is
a shortfall in kids' diets or a
half-serving of a food group
to encourage;
* 32% of the ads included
at least a half-serving of
vegetables or fruit such as
apples or applesauce;
* 33% included milk or yo-
gurt; and
* 27% were for products or
meals that provided at least
8 grams of whole grains/50
percent whole grains.
The report also notes that
52 percent of the cereals
that participants advertise
to kids contain no more
than 10 grams of sugar.
All of these cereals contain
less than 130 calories and
provide many essential vi-
tamins and minerals; many
contain a half-serving of
whole grains and are a good
source of Vitamin D.

How to keep Love alive


at Any Age!


"Sharing a life together is
sharing steps in time. The
music is different to each of
us but how beautiful the
dance." Flavia.
Even couples that lived a
lifetime together have trou-
bles. I know, because they
come into my office with
their broken dreams. In
some cases, the difficulties
began upon returning home
from their honeymoon.
And as the bickering and
fighting grew, so too did the
resentments. This occurs
because the communica-
tion was lacking. Instead of
fixing the issues, the con-
tinuous fighting only fur-
thered the already damaged
relationship. DON"T LET
THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!
"Of those who stay married,
90% report their marriages
as Unsatisfactory."-- Gary
Brainerd, PhD., American
Bar Assoc.
This is both stunning and
sad.
As a licensed psychothera-


pist, what I do is help peo-
ple attain healthy love re-
lationships out of the hope
that they can lead happy
lives. Marriage is the join-
ing of two imperfect in-
dividuals. Mature love is
your awareness that you are
making a commitment to
an imperfect person. Love
involves caring, intimacy,
trust, and commitment. It is
important to accept the dif-
ferences of your partner.
Smile often. Start each day
with a kiss. Look for posi-
tives.
You want to know what I
hear as one of the greatest
maladies among couples?
She never listens to me.
He doesn't talk to me. We
don't communicate. And
they boil with frustration.
One of the chief dysfunc-
tions in failing marriages
is of the verbal variety.
Satisfying intimacy cannot
be achieved without good
communication. There is
a critical difference be-


tween ineffective and ef-
fective communication.
We all want, deep within
ourselves, to be heard and
understood. That is a basic
need and desire for partner-
ing. However, it seems that
many people, however well
intended, are very poor lis-
teners, which leaves many
in their lives hurt and frus-
trated.
Love is fun. An unhappy
marriage can take away
pleasure in so many other
aspects of your life. A joy-
less relationship depletes
the energy of an otherwise
vibrant individual. As hope
is renewed in my counsel-
ing sessions, steps can be
taken to reinvigorate your
life with new energy, more
smiles, and that special
twinkle in the eyes.
How beautiful will your
dance be? It's all up to you.

Football's Henry Earns National Recognition


Boca Raton, FL Cory Hen-
ry, a Florida Atlantic Uni-
versity defensive lineman,
has been named to Phil
Steele's Magazine's Post-
season All-Freshman Team.
Henry played in every game
during the 2010 season for
the Owls and drew four
starts as a true freshman.
The Miami Gardens prod-


uct had a team-leading five
sacks. His eight tackles for
a loss lists in a tie for No.
16 among Sun Belt Confer-
ence (SBC) members and
he is the only freshman to
be listed. He is also tied for
eighth in sacks and is the
only freshman in the SBC's
top-10 in sacks.
Henry, a member of Steele's


fourth team, is the only
SBC defensive player and
was one of two on either
offense or defense.
Henry is projected to help
anchor a defensive line in
2011 that will return only
two out of nine seniors who
consistently rotated during
the 2010 season.

CRANK UP THE HEAT
By Pedro Heizer



Magical Trade


The Orlando Magic, des-
perately trying to keep up
with the Miami Heat in
the southeast division, de-
cided not to stand pat this
past Saturday, blowing up
a team with championship
aspirations that had been in
first place in the Southeast
Division for most of the
first month of the season.
On the same day that the
team sent Rashard Lewis
to Washington for Gilbert
Arenas, Orlando agreed
to cut ties with forwards
Vince Carter and Mickael
Pietrus, center Marcin Gor-
tat, a future first-round pick
and $3 Million to Phoenix
for veteran forward Hedo
Turkoglu, guard Jason
Richardson and second-
year center Earl Clark.
The mega deals complete-
ly change the face of the
Magic, who are sitting with
a 16-10 record this season,
and reunites Turkoglu with
the team where he played
his best basketball.
Turkoglu has been a disas-
ter ever since he left Or-
lando. He signed a big free
agent contract in Toronto,
lasting just one season with
the Raptors before being
dealt during the offseason
in a trade for guard Lean-
dro Barbosa, and Turkoglu
also struggled in Phoenix.
The Suns had hoped he
could play the hybrid pow-
er forward position that
they've used to great effect


in past seasons
with Amar'e
Stoudemire and
Boris Diaw. But
Turkoglu never
figured out a
way to play with
Steve Nash, and
his energy was
so low, a team
source said, that
he was beginning
to drag down the
effectiveness of
backup guard
Goran Dragic as
well.
The Suns had to -
do something,
barely on the
periphery of the
playoff race in the west
at 13-13 after making the
Western Conference finals
last season. Phoenix needs
size, and the 6-foot-10 Gor-
tat should be able to step in
immediately and help in-
side. Pietrus had fallen out
of favor with Magic coach
Stan Van Gundy, but seems
tailor made to play the up-
tempo style Phoenix loves
to run with Nash at the con-
trols. The gamble is with
the 33-year-old Carter, who
has not been the same high-
flying player he'd been ear-
lier in his career.
The hope is that the Suns
can get Carter interested
"in being a helluva player
again," a source said, but
the gamble is minimal be-
cause Carter's $18 million


contract for next season is
only guaranteed for $4 mil-
lion next season.
At the same time as the
Phoenix trade, the Wash-
ington Wizards and Or-
lando Magic agreed to send
guard Gilbert Arenas to Or-
lando in exchange for for-
ward Rashard Lewis.
Arenas returned to the
Wizards this season and
has played reasonably well,
averaging 17.3 points and
5.6 assists for Washington.
He would give Orlando
someone who can create
for himself and others off
the dribble, something the
Magic have sorely lacked
this season as they have
struggled at times against
the league's better teams.

By: Mike Pederson

Senior exercise for golf is
becoming evident, but not
enough to make a dent in
the aging golfers' approach
to golf improvement. So
many golfers who reach
their 60's and up are loo-
king for anything that will
help them improve and yet
the last thing they look at is
their body.
With age comes a declining
level of strength, flexibility,
endurance, balance, coordi-
nation and more. With that
being said, why wouldn't
a senior golfer take care
of those issues with a golf
training and conditioning
program?
It is quite obvious the body
at that age dictates the out-
come. With a slight impro-
vement in both strength
and flexibility the senior
golfer can see dramatic im-
provements on the course.
The return on investment is
well worth it!
If you're a senior golfer-
wanting to enjoy many
years of good golf, you
need to take a serious look
at a senior exercise for golf
program. One that suits
your needs and current
physical fitness level.
Once you do...you'll need
to create some consistency
to see results. There's no
such thing as a "quick-fix"
in regards to health, fitness
and even golf. At the same
time, it doesn't need to be
a commitment of several
hours every day seven days
a week.
You would be setting your-
self up for failure from the
get-go'.
Being realistic with your


goals and commitment level
will give you the best re-
sults in the shortest amount
of time. The number one
cause of failure is adhe-
rence. Stick to it long-term
and the sky is the limit.
A senior exercise for golf
program can consist of 4-6
strength exercises, and 3-4
flexibility ones. That's how
simple and easy it can be.
If you get the "fitness bug",
you'll naturally do a little
more. But starting off with
this type of program format
will be doable and enjoy-
able.
As soon as you start see-
ing results in your driv-
ing distance and accuracy,
you'll become a believer in
fitness for golf. It really is
the missing link to a great
game.
The main focus of your
senior exercise for golf
program will be your core


rotational strength and flex-
ibility; along with ham-
strings and maybe shoul-
ders. Those are the key
areas that will give you a
noticeable improvement in
power output and consis-
tency of swing.
The best part is you can
do this type of program
right in your own home.
I've developed all my golf
performance programs and
websites to utilize minimal
(and affordable) equipment
in the home or even office.
I've received over 10,000
emails in the last 6 years,
since launching the first
online golf performance
website... on how great it is
to not need a gym member-
ship.
So take a look around or
do a search for golf fitness
or golf training to see what
senior exercise for golf pro-
gram suits you the best.

Lynn Student-Athlete Kyle Conrad dies


following tragic accident


By ChadBeattie

BOCA RATON, Fl Lynn
University, its athletic de-
partment and the entire
University community are
mourning following the
loss of student-athlete Kyle
Conrad. A senior from Jen-
sen Beach, Fla., Conrad
died at 1:40 p.m. Saturday,
December 11, following
injuries suffered from an
accident Friday night/Sa-
turday morning.
Scheduled to graduate this
May with a degree in Sports
& Recreation Management,
Conrad was a four-year let-
ter winner with the Fight-
ing Knights men's soccer
team. This past season he
led the squad with 11 goals,
four assists and 26 points to
cap off an incredible play-
ing career. For his efforts in
2010, he was honored as a
Daktronics Third Team All-
American, First Team All-
South Region and Second
Team All-Sunshine State
Conference selection.
The midfielder became
just the fourth player in the
program's illustrious his-
tory to accumulate 100 ca-
reer points, and first since
1995, while also being the
fourth-highest scorer with
39 goals. During his time
in Boca, he helped lead
the Blue & White to three
NCAA Tournament appear-
ances and three Sunshine
State Conference titles.
Away from the pitch, Kyle
was an exceptional student,
boasting a 3.79 cumulative
grade-point average. He
was the first student-ath-
lete in school history, from


any sport, to garer First
Team ESPN Academic
All-District accolades three
times and was twice named
an ESPN Academic All-
American, including this
year.
In addition to his school
and playing career, Kyle
was an important figure
around campus. He inter-
ned with the Lynn Sports
Information and Marke-
ting Departments and was
a constant supporter of the
entire student-athlete com-
munity.
Everything he achieved
was due to his exceptional
work ethic, drive to succeed
and heart of a champion. A
fantastic person dedicated
to his friends and family,
studies and the men's soc-
cer program, Kyle is sur-
vived by his parents, Mary
Ann and Sherman, and his
sisters Kristen and Kayla.
Here are some thoughts
about Kyle from those who
knew him:
Lynn University President
Kevin M. Ross "Kyle rep-
resented the best of Lynn.
He was an excellent stu-
dent, wonderful teammate
and just a great person. I
am deeply saddened by the
sudden loss of such a prom-
ising young man, and my
condolences go out to his
family."
Director of Athletics Kris-
ten Migliano "Kyle was
a person who lived with
exemplary character and
resolve. He was a hard wor-
ker and leader, not only
among the men's soccer
team but all student-ath-
letes. I'll always remember


him greeting me with an in-
fectious smile and tremen-
dous warmth."
Head Soccer Coach John
Rootes "We are shocked
and saddened by the loss of
Kyle Conrad today. Kyle
was one of the finest e-
xamples of a true scholar-
athlete as I have had the
honor of working with in
my 23 years of coaching.
He was loved and respec-
ted by his teammates. We
were blessed to have Kyle
in our lives."
Director of Student-Athlete
Services Sara Quatrocky -
"Kyle was a part of my first
ever Champs Life Skills
class [four years ago] and
he shone bright even as a
freshman. His personali-
ty was a joy to be around
and thinking about putting
up his final Academic All-
America plaque gives me
great sorrow."
Director of Compliance,
Jeff Schaly "Kyle was the
epitome of a student-ath-
lete. He was one of those
rare people that ranked
among the best in the coun-
try both in the classroom
and on the soccer field.
Kyle was a truly special


young man.
Sports Information Direc-
tor Chad Beattie "Kyle
was an outstanding human
being who accomplished
so much during his time on
Earth. He touched the lives
of many with his enthusi-
asm while his commitment
to friends and family was
unmatched. I am extreme-
ly honored to have known
him as a player, intern and,
more importantly, friend."
Teammate and captain of
the men's soccer team
Scott Gordon "The thing
about Kyle is that he had
the best spirit of anyone
I've ever met in my life.
He was genuinely a good
person and words cannot
sum up how I or the team
feels about him. Kyle was
a player we could always
count on to give it his best
and a person we always
knew would bring the best
out of us."
From former teammate and
MLS player Jean Alexan-
dre "Kyle had the heart
of a champion. He never
stopped running and never
quit. That's the type of per-
son Kyle was, a champion
who gave it his all always."
