Quote
of the Week
Keep your mouth free of
perversity; keep corrupt
talk far from your lips.
Prov. 4:24

Paul Triviabits
By PaulPaquet
A few days ago, we looked
at the bad people at the
Supermax. But there are
"celebrities" in all sorts of
prisons. John Gotti, Leon-
ard Peltier and Pete Rose
were all in Marion, built
in Ohio to replace Alca-
traz. Folsom has housed
the Hells Angels' Sonny
Barger, Timothy Leary,
Suge Knight and Charles
Manson. And Attica has
been home to bank rob-
ber Willie Sutton, assas-
sin Mark David Chapman,
the Son of Sam and Black
Panther H. Rap Brown.

What prison's last "in-
mates" are its ravens,
whose wings are clipped
to keep them from flying
away?
A) Alcatraz
B) Bastille
C) Devil's Island
D) Tower of London

Previous answer: The
Saints were exiled be-
cause ofKatrina.

Safety tip from

Boca Raton Police


Boca Raton police safety tip
Q. At what age can I leave my child home alone?

A: While Florida statute does not give a specific age, po-
lice take several things into consideration when determin-
ing whether it is safe for a child to be home alone. The
maturity level of the child, duration of time alone, ability
to care for him/herself, safety of the home environment,
and accessibility to food/water are some of the factors
considered. If you feel your child is ready to be left home
alone, make sure that he/she understands an emergency
plan you have developed, has access to a phone for dial-
ing 911, and notify a friend, neighbor, or relative of the
situation.
Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from
the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information, visit

County, Boca, give Palm Tran Bus 94

green light to keep operating


By Dale M King


BOCA RATON Some
people wonder about the
popularity of bus travel in
Palm Beach County.
They only have to look
at Palm Tran Route 94 in
Boca Raton to see a major
success story.
The buses on the route that
operates between the Boca
Raton Tri-Rail Station, Flo-
rida Atlantic University,
Palm Beach State College
and Federal Highway car-
ries 1,000 riders a day, said
County Commissioner Ste-
ven Abrams.
He recently announced ap-
proval of an agreement be-
tween the county and the
city of Boca Raton "to con-
tinue and enhance one of
the county's busiest Palm


Tran bus routes, Route 94.
This route provides service
for approximately 1,000
passengers a day, an in-
crease of almost 50 percent
from last year."
The funding for this bus
route, originally provided
by the South Florida Re-
gional Transportation Au-
thority (SFTRA), was due
to expire in early 2011,
Abrams said, "and Route
94 was in jeopardy of being
reduced."
"Due to the high level of
ridership and the fact that
it serves students all across
the region, it was important
that we keep this bus mov-
ing," said Abrams, who
also serves on SFTRA.
Together, he said, the
county and the city suc-
cessfully obtained funding


assistance from the federal
government (Job Access
Reverse Commute grant of
$170,000 per year for three
years). Additionally, fund-
ing is being provided by
both the county and the city
($164,331 per year each).
They said they took action
before the money ran out so
there would be no disrup-
tion of service.
"This route is critical, not
only for our students, but
all of our residents, as we
are able to take car trips
off our busy streets," said
Boca Raton Mayor Susan
Whelchel, who worked
with Commissioner A-
brams to keep the popular
route running.
Route 94 buses run every
15 minutes in the mor-
ning from 6:00 am until
9:45 am. In the afternoon
they run every 20 minutes
from 1:45 pm until 9:00
pm, which is when the
service ends. During off-
peak hours (9:45 am 1:45
pm), the route operates on a
40-minute schedule.
City Manager Leif Ahn-
ell said enhanced Route
94 service began in 2008.
"Since its inception, rider-
ship has increased 98 per-
cent."

South Florida gets view of first lunar

eclipse on winter solstice in

nearly 400 years


BOCA RATON Expert
photographer, attorney
and Boca Raton Tribune
columnist Mike Gora
shot this picture of the
recent total lunar eclipse
that occurred on the day
of the winter solstice.
The eclipse took place
from 2:41 to 3:53 a.m.
Eastern Standard Time
on Dec. 21, coinciding
with the date of the De-
cember solstice. It was
visible in its entirety as
a total lunar eclipse in
North and South Ameri-
ca, Iceland and northern
Scandinavia.
The eclipse was the first
total lunar eclipse to oc-
cur on the day of the
northern winter solstice
(southern summer sol-
stice) since 1638. The
next lunar eclipse to oc-
cur on a northern winter
solstice will be on Dec.
21, 2094.
This eclipse occurred
at the descending node
of the moon's orbit.
Lunar eclipses are al-
ways paired with a solar
eclipse either two weeks


before or after at
new moon in the
opposite node.
In this case, it
will be followed
by a partial so-
lar eclipse at the
ascending node
on Jan. 4, 2011,
visible from Eu-
rope, northern
Africa, and wes-
tern Asia.

the Year; receives $2.5 million federal grant


BOCA RATON Lynn Uni-
versity's Project ACCESS
(Assimilation to Communi-
ty, Careers, Employment,
and Self-Sufficiency) a pro-
gram that brings young peo-
ple with disabilities from the
local community to campus
for employment opportuni-
ties was selected as one of
only three model sites for
this type of program in the
state of Florida by United
States Department of Edu-
cation.
Lynn's program was also
recently awarded the Palm
Beach County Business
Leadership Network (BLN)
2010 On the Job Training
(OJT) Site of the Year for
exemplary use of best prac-
tices in transition program-
ming for students with di-
sabilities.
Project ACCESS was spear-
headed by the late Patrick
Hartwick, dean of Lynn's
Ross College of Education
who was tragically lost in
the Jan. 12 Haitian earth-
quake earlier this year. On
Wednesday, Dec. 15 and
Thursday, Dec. 16, the first
annual Hartwick Sympo-
sium on Transition Programs
was held on campus with
representatives of transition-
al programs from across the
state.
In 2007, Lynn developed a
partnership with the Palm
Beach County School Dis-
trict called Project ACCESS.
It is one of only 12 programs
currently available foryoung
people with disabilities in
the state of Florida.


The program offers students
ages 18-21 who have gradu-
ated with a special diploma
(and would otherwise have a
very limited or non-existing
chance of going to a post-
secondary institution) with
the opportunity to attend
a university campus to re-
ceive academic instruction,
job training and the oppor-
tunity to socialize with their
peers.
"The ultimate goal of Pro-
ject ACCESS is for the stu-
dents to be as independent
as possible," said Mayra
Camacho, a professor in
Lynn's Ross College of Ed-
ucation who, together with
Hartwick, was influential in
developing the program.
Currently, Lynn supports
seven transitional students
in Lynn's library, cafeteria,
fitness center, bookstore,
study abroad office, College
of Hospitality and College
of Education.
On Oct. 1, Lynn and two
other Florida universities re-
ceived $2.5 million grants
from the U.S. Department
of Education to become
one of three model sites for
this type of program in the
state of Florida. Lynn, the
University of South Florida
and the University of North
Florida will each receive
$220,000 over a period of
five years to support the
programs. The remainder
of the funds will be used
to support the start of new,
related efforts, the salary of
those coordinating the grant
and the Hartwick Sympo-


sium for the next five years.
In memory of Lynn's for-
mer dean of education, the
first annual Hartwick Sym-
posium on Transition Pro-
grams was held on campus
Dec. 15 and 16. Representa-
tives from Florida's 12 tran-
sitional programs gathered
to discuss future plans and
services.
Hartwick and the other mem-
bers of the Lynn community
lost in the Haiti earthquake
will be remembered on Jan.
12, 2011 (the one-year an-
niversary) during Lynn's
Knights Unite Day of Ca-
ring.
In addition to its model Pro-
ject ACCESS program that
helps students with disabili-
ties from the community,
Lynn supports and helps its
own students with learning
differences realize their full
potential in college through
tutoring and a variety of
on-campus services offered
by its Institute for Achieve-
ment and Learning.
On Jan. 28, 2011, Lynn
will host the second annual
Transitions Conference to
help students, parents and
high-school guidance coun-
selors learn about the oppor-
tunities in higher education
for students with learning
differences. This year's con-
ference features renowned
speakers including the presi-
dent of the College Board.
Tickets to the day-long event
are $40. For additional in-
formation and a full lineup
of speakers, visit www.lynn.

Boca Raton Tribune arrived in 2010 to keep you up-to-date on news


BOCA RATON A lot of things happened in Boca Raton
during 2010.
Money was donated for exceptional causes. New pro-
jects began. The economy remained sluggish and busi-
nesses city government included had to shed workers as
the unemployment rate in Florida notched in even higher
than the national average.
As for local news, many people could have remained in
the dark were it not for another event that occurred in 2010
- the arrival of The Boca Raton Tribune and its accompa-
nying website.
It began in January 2010 with a website that quickly de-
veloped into a newspaper published every other week
through October, when it starting coming out weekly.
Led by the passion and drive of Publisher Douglas Heiz-
er, who gathered a cadre of experienced writers and edi-
tors along with young men and women looking to launch
journalism careers, the product has succeeded. Two more
websites, for Coral Springs and Delray Beach, are being
developed in advance of additional
newspa- ot a itaatontunt pers due out
in 2011. A-at 36 "--

The Tribune kept in con-
tact with Lynn University when the quake in Haiti
took a toll on a contingent of students and faculty who had
just arrived to conduct a charity mission. Four students
and two professors were killed.

To honor those lost, Lynn held a memorial service that
drew hundreds to the campus to remember the courageous
students and staff.
Meanwhile, the Boca Tribune staff renewed associations
with city officials. To honor the creation of a new news-
paper for Boca Raton, Mayor Susan Whelchel presented
a proclamation to Publisher Heizer and Managing Editor
Dale M. King.
Municipal news filled the Tribune's pagers. The imminent
arrival of parking meters was a topic on page one of Edi-


tion 5 that came out in May. In that same edition, County
C o m m i s sioner Steven Abrams
announced t !0ora ltg r that the
county had u ,., C t na med
to-buf-.
a panel to deal with
any conse- % quences
of the BP a oil spill.
Both the city and
county y were ready
for the I i hlS8O0~oa o i worst; lu-
ckily, it didn't hap-
pen. But j'the news
didn't end there.
Edition 9 kept up
cover- age of the BP
oil spill. Also, Boca Raton
Community Hospital which was soon to change its name
to Boca Raton Regional Hospital placed in the top 5 per-
cent of medical facilities nationally for emergency care.
Boca Hospital continued to make news in 2010 all re-
corded in the pages of the Tribune. The change in name,
officials said, came about because the facility, opened in
1967, had come to serve a regional clientele.
The hospital got a big boost from local philanthropist
Christine Lynn later in the year when she donated $10 mil-
lion to the hospital's cancer institute named for Lynn and
her late husband. The announcement came in the occasion
of the 80th birthday of Gloria Drummond, the woman who
led the drive in the 1960s to build a hospital in Boca Raton.
She was driven by a personal tragedy, the death of her
two young children, who drank milk that was acciden-
tally tainted with poison. The children died en route to the
nearest hospital, Bethesda, in Boynton Beach. As a result,
Drummond and her husband mustered a team to begin
fundraising and planning a medical facility in Boca.
Her children are memorialized in the Debbie-Rand Me-
morial Service League, the volunteer arm of the hospital.
BRRH also re-
ported l Q N that dur-
ing 2010, priug orCmudenk, it made its

birthday was cel-
ebrated 'during
2010 the 98th for philanthropist Henrietta, Countess de

Spending time doing things for kids


makes the best Christmas


Well, Christmas is over. No
more carols on the radio.
No more special twinkle in
the holiday lights. We're in
that odd limbo that comes
at the end of each year.
Holiday songs tell us about
the importance of Christ-
mas memories. So, this
year, my wife and I decided
to do some things that we
would remember fondly.
We don't have children.
But we spent lots of time
doing things for special
youngsters.
My wife works for an
agency that deals with fos-
ter children and foster par-
ents. They have a major
Christmas party each year,
and hundreds of gifts need
wrapping.
So I joined the other "vol-
unteers" from her agency to
help wrap the gifts.
And you know something,
it wasn't a chore, it was
fun especially knowing
that each package would
have a special meaning for
a youngster.
So there a bunch of us sat,
passing around paper and
tape, listening to Christmas
carols. It could have been


Santa's workshop. There
could have been a foot of
snow outside, we didn't
know. But the atmosphere
of giving filled the room
with warmth.
Then, the party itself. I
joined my wife at the fes-
tivities where these many
young people, from teens
to toddlers, received pres-
ents of every kind.
We felt good inside when
we saw the presents we had
wrapped being carried out
by smiling children. These
are special kids who de-
serve to smile.
Toward the end of the
event, I stood at one end of
a long corridor and watched
a couple of kids running up
and down the aisle, laugh-
ing broadly.
For one day, these children
could forget the abuse and
neglect they had suffered
and all the bad things that
caused them to be removed
from their biological pa-
rents.
If these children can smile,
then anyone can smile.
Even in tough times like
this, Christmas is fun.
Even if you can't be with


your family, it was still a
time to celebrate. The only
sad part is that Christmas
ends so quickly.
But as we old Boston Red
Sox fans used to say, "Wait
'til next year."

End of an era

Speaking of sadness, I
spent some holiday shop-
ping time going through
the Borders Books in West
Boca Raton the one that's
going out of business.
I love bookstores, and
it hurt to see the empty
shelves and the big, yel-
low and black signs blaring
"40" and "60" percent off.
I know that, little by little,
books are being replaced
with electronic pads. I
wonder sometimes if all
these technological gizmos
are really necessary. My
wife urges me not to be
such "a crotchety old man."
But there's something
about a book that's spe-
cial. They are wonderful
companions on trains and
planes. They sometimes
hold deep, dark secrets.
It's always great to go into


a used book store and find a
volume printed in the mid-
19th century.
Ironically, not only is Bor-
ders closing, but so is the
Blockbuster Video near my
house. In fact, its doors are
already shuttered. Only the
big yellow "going out of
business sign" remains.
We all hope that 2011 will
be a better year for our
economy, just like we hope
for more jobs to open up.
Let's just hang a little more
tightly to those hopes this
year.

Health report: OK

Some of you may recall
my column from a few
weeks ago about how I had
to have a mammogram (or
MAN-o-gram, as I called
it) to check a soreness in
my chest.
Well, I'm happy to report
that I got a letter the other
say saying there was no
sign of cancer.
That makes my New Year
hopes bright. And we wish
the same to all our readers
as 2011 arrives.

POSITIVE LIVING
By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.




Not Everything Can Be Instant!


In contemporary society,
many people have become
accustomed to accomplish
quite a few things instant-
ly. Very often, just pressing
a button or clapping one's
hands, will bring the de-
sired result right away.
People are offered instant
credit, photos are devel-
oped instantly, or while one
briefly waits, we drink ins-
tant coffee, and ingest many
instantly-prepared foods
and, through a multiplicity
of television channels, we
can access instant enter-
tainment and news. Infor-
mation today is literally at
one's fingertips. Examples
can easily be multiplied,
each illustrating the unlim-
ited possibilities available
in our push-button society.
Although much of that
can be beneficial for us,
a problem it creates is
the false expectation that


other issues may also be
resolved in great speed.
Even though rapidity may
denote progress in many
situations, it would mean
total disaster in others. We
need to learn the differ-
ence, and employ genuine
understanding as we con-
front 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
period, as rapport and con-
fidence 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; a jour-
ney can only occur within


the time-frame necessary
for its realization; any pro-
blem cannot be instantly
swept under a rug, but it
requires thoughtful, and
often lengthy, concentra-
tion and action for its reso-
lution.
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 ne-
ver postpones the outpou-
ring of His blessings; they
always follow His divine
schedule and appointment!


Dr Synesio Lyra, Jr is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level.
He is a writer, a sought-after conference speaker, a man who lived in five continents of the world, having
received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for
the daily "Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida.

FAU's Peace Studies Program Receives $600,000 Gift


Coral Springs


BOCA RATON- Fl- Atlan-
tic University held a dinner
at The Eleanor R Baldwin
House with close to 90
people in attendance to
celebrate a $600,000 do-
nation recently made to
FAU's peace studies pro-
gram. President Mary Jane
Saunders announced that
the gift was given by three
Boca Raton families to es-
tablish the Lynn, Wold and
Schmidt Peace Studies En-
dowment, the first perma-
nent endowment for FAU's
peace studies program. The
gift is eligible for match-
ing finds by the State of
Florida University Major
Gifts Program and the FAU
Clearwire matching gift
program, making the total
value of the endowment
$1.44 million.
The gift was made by the
E.M. Lynn Foundation, rep-
resented by Christine Lynn;
the Bay Branch Foundation,
represented by Elaine Wold;
and the Schmidt Family
Foundation, represented by
Dick and Barbara Schmidt.
The purpose of the gift was
to establish an endowed
fund to support educational
and community outreach
activities in the peace stud-
ies program within the Dor-
othy F. Schmidt College of
Arts and Letters.


"Over the last decade, our
distinguished faculty asso-
ciated with peace studies
has built a high quality a-
cademic program with a fo-
cus on global peace and per-
sonal transformation," said
Manjunath Pendakur, dean
of the Dorothy F. Schmidt
College ofArts and Letters.
"The community outreach
program, in collaboration
with the Schmidt Family
Foundation, has brought
such apostles of peace as
His Holiness the 14th Da-
lai Lama of Tibet and Dr.
Jane Goodall to Boca Ra-
ton. This generous gift from
three families will help
us immensely to continue
such great work to serve the
cause of peace, FAU stu-
dents and the community at
large."
The endowment will pro-
vide scholarships and fel-
lowships to students pur-
suing academic studies in
the peace program at FAU;
fund distinguished speak-
ers and events that enhance
peace and understanding
for the benefit of students
and the wider community
at large; and support com-
munity enrichment activi-
ties including workshops,
seminars and cultural ac-
tivities related to peace.

Delray-based motorcycle club delivers $7,000


in toys and gifts to Home Safe kids


By Dale M King

WEST PALM BEACH -
The Delray Beach-based
Alternative Motorcycle Club
has two missions.
One is to live and encou-
rage a life without drugs
or alcohol. The other is to
help abused and abandoned
kids during the holiday sea-
son.
The 15-member club spent
the last year collecting do-
nations for the children at
Home Safe Inc., an agency
which provides services
and finds foster homes
for neglected, abused and
abandoned kids.
So, when a crowd of Home
Safe kids showed up for
their annual Christmas par-
ty Dec. 18, they walked into
a hall filled with $7,000
worth of toys, gifts and gift
cards provided by the mo-
torcycle club. The children
enjoyed lunch, met with
Santa Claus and left with
their gifts many of them
carried by members of the
bike group.
"This is the best part of
Christmas," said Steve Stal-
baum of Boynton Beach,
whose friend is a member
of the club. Helping the
youngsters, he said, slows
the hectic holiday pace
and allows them to enjoy it
more.
"Radar" Jimmy Saville, a


Delray resident and club
member, is following in his
late father's footsteps. He
said his dad used to gather
donations and provide gifts
for kids at the holidays as
part of the motorcycle club.
Home Safe Marketing Ma-
nager Joe Maltese said this
year's collection "marks
the fifth straight year" the
Alternative Motorcycle Club
has given to the Home Safe
kids. "The motorcycle group
organized the event, which
included raising the money
to buy gifts for more than
100 kids and they also se-
cured food and beverages
for a holiday party" from
Longhorn Steak House.
Due to rainy weather, the
event was held inside
Home Safe's West Palm
Beach facility. (The agency
also has quarters in Boca
Raton and Lake Worth).
"It was a monsoon," said
Saville, who rode his cycle
through the rain. "I had to
pull over."
Darlene Torres, coordina-
tor of the party, praised
the bike group. "They are
great. They did everything
to make it work."
Santa Claus was also on
hand, giving out gifts and
meeting the children.

cle Club website is http://

day in three successive issues of the paper Number 14,
which featured the Countess on the cover as well as 15
and 16.
The Countess and her late husband, Count Adolph de Ho-
emle, arrived in Boca Raton in 1981 and spent a lifetime
giving to many institutions in the city, county and around
the nation. It's said a total of 40 buildings bear either
her, his or both names including the Count de Hoemle
building that houses the Caldwell Theatre; the Count de
Hoemle Train Pavilion; Count de Hoernle Amphitheatre;
Henrietta, Countess de Hoemle building that houses Chil-


versity's reins.
The year 2010 saw FAU moving forward with a couple of
major projects that have been on the books for some time.
The university broke ground for its Innovation Village a
mix of housing and retail and also began the process of
building a 30,000-seat football stadium for FAU's 11-year-
old Fighting Owls football team, which has never had an
on-campus home field.
The Boca Raton Tribune grew during the year to cover
high school football this season. A number of columnists
have come on board, including Rebecca Coleman on the
society scene, Kay Renz reporting on style and fashion,
on-the-scene reports from Linda Gove and the humorous
and quirky columns of Diane Feen. Well known entertain-
ment writer Skip Sheffield is also on the Tribune team.
A series called "10 Questions" gave readers insight into
the lives and thoughts of Boca Mayor Susan Whelchel,
newly elected State Sen. Maria Sachs and Police Athletic
League boxer and national champ Steve Geffrard.
The Tribune delivered lots of political news during 2010,
a year considered critical to the future of President Barack
Obama. The so-called "mid-term elections" were held,
and the Tribune gave voters advance information and post-
election coverage of the massive Republican sweep.
Locals who made the cut included County Commissioner
Steven Abrams, State Sen. Maria Sachs and State Rep.
Steve Perman, all of whom won without opposition. The
cover of issue No. 20 showed a collage of photos of state
and federal office winners Rick Scott, Allen West, Ellen
Bogdanoff and Marco Rubio.
Municipal news was a major focus of the Tribune, includ-
ing a weekly police log and police safety tips. The paper
reported on the city budget, adopted in September, which

Gifts Ahoy! Dozens of entries turn out for annual Boca Holiday Boat Parade

BOCA RATON Dozens of holiday-lighted ships sailed the Intracoastal on a drizzly
night Dec. 18 as Boca Raton held its 34th annual Holiday Boat Parade.
The event was organized by the city of Boca Raton, the Marine Industries Association
of Palm Beach County and Sea Tower Services of Palm Beach County.
As in past years, parade officials encouraged everyone to participate in the US Ma-
rine's Toys for Tots Drive to benefit children in the area. Boats stopped along the route C .
to pick up toys from spectators on shore.
A spectacular traveling fireworks display led the parade route along the Intracoastal-
from the C-15 canal at the Boca-Delray line to the Hillsboro Inlet.

III Forks at 200 East Palmet-

(561-416-2185) is open for
dinner only, 7 days a week.
From 5PM to 10PM Monday
through Thursday, 5PM to

and 5PM to 9PM Friday, it
would be wise in season- to
call for reservations at this
superior dining establish-

There are seven III Forks
restaurants in both Texas
and Florida, the Boca branch
with elegant atmosphere, a
warm and knowledgeable
staff give the impression of a
fine private dining club.
Turning to the menu offe-
rings of the seven listed
appetizers, we sampled the
Seafood Medley, a presenta-

containing bacon wrapped
Diver Scallop, a couple
of huge white shrimp and
smooth textured, delicious
crabcake -remolade and cat-
sup sauces on the side. While
ahi tuna, beef croustades,
shrimp cocktail, full portions
of both the bacon wrapped
scallops and Crabcake St.
Francis are listed, we opted
for the onion rings. They ar-
rived ten enormous crusted
rings, tender and tasty and
enough for two or more to
feast upon!
Listed as Starters, were a
tomato and onion salad, a
wedge salad, the house III
Forks salad and our favor-
ite Caesar! This proved to
be a real winner shards of
crisp lettuce with a delicious
dressing having just the right
flavor bite. We tried lobster


bisque and found it smooth
with a pleasant soft taste and
bits of lobster meat which
we enjoyed. A crock of
French onion soup arrived,
bubbling hot with a toasted
cheese crown and chock full
of onions in a rich, flavorful
broth superb.
Let's talk about Beef Mar-
ket a roster of eight selec-
tions featuring prime rib and
tenderloin tips, both with
creamy mashed potatoes.
We tried the prime rib, done
medium rare, a generous half
inch thick slice of perfection
in taste and tenderness. In
addition, there are six steak
choices all USDA prime
- the finest in juiciness, ten-
derness and flavor. This is
the III Forks guarantee. Fi-
let mignons can be had in
8 ounce or 12 ounce cut,
the New York strips in 12
ounce or 16 ounce cut or a
bone in rib eye at a 18 ounce
portion. We sampled the 8
ounce filet and found it per-
fectly broiled to be "juicy,
tender and flavorful". This
is a prime steakhouse avail
yourself of your favorite and
salute Chef Eric Morales.
We found six fish selections
- Atlantic salmon, a shrimp
platter, scallops, Australian
lobster tail, Chilean sea bass
and a fish of the day.
The sea bass nicely grilled,
juicy and tender, had a very
gentle taste and was accom-
panied by a portion of wild
rice a fitting companion to
the sea bass. The gently en-
crusted fried lobster tail was
a 12 ounce beauty, served
with a mustard/Creole sauce


or drawn butter, a giant tasty
portion.
There is a listing of Local
Favorites including a ribeye
sandwich, a prime burger or
a prime rib sandwich all
served with fries. Roasted
chicken with red pepper
sauce, tenderloin salad with
blue cheese dressing, a
salmon Caesar salad and a
prime double-cut pork chop
plus rack of lamb round out
this list. We tried the lamb,
cooked medium and found it
quite flavorful.
Eight sides are available -
the house suggested we try
the six cheese potatoes. They
were right a bubbling con-
coction of cheeses in sauce
poured over sliced potatoes -
great. The off-the-cob cream
corn, while tasty kernels in
a nice sauce, had a bit too
much thyme for our taste.
Mashed and baked potatoes,
wild rice, both saut6ed spin-
ach and saut6ed mushrooms
plus fresh asparagus round
out this list.
We had to try the crbme bru-
lee which was very much
like a custard, a great bread
pudding with a scoop of cin-
namon ice cream and a tow-
ering portion of a fantastic
chocolate Grenache, rich in
taste and texture. A cheese-
cake and a Texas pecan cake
are also offered Thank you
Pastry Chef Andrew.
III Forks has an extensive
and varied wine list, a full

Local Civil Air Patrol members take part in ceremony


at Veterans Ceremony


LAKE WORTH Colonel
Buddy Harris from the US
Air Force's Volunteer Aux-
iliary, The Civil Air Patrol,
along with Congressman-
Elect Allen West, were fea-
tured speakers at the annual
Wreaths across America
Program, laying wreaths on
veterans gravesites in the
Lake Worth National Veter-
ans Cemetery.
The event takes place the
second Saturday of De-
cember from coast to coast
where nearly a million live
wreaths are placed at veter-
ans grave sites in national
cemeteries.
"In 2006, the Civil Air Pa-


trol, United States Air Force
Auxiliary, became a key
national partner in conduct-
ing the ceremony of remem-
brance to show thanks to our
brave members of the armed
forces who served heroical-
ly to maintain our freedom,"
said Colonel Harris.
Civil Air Patrol members
from the Palm Beach Coun-
ty, Boca Raton, Lantana &
North County squadrons
joined various veterans or-
ganizations in the laying of
wreaths. Cadets also par-
ticipated by carrying the
Colors and marching in the
parade.
Colonel Harris said the ca-


Wreaths Across America was started in 1992 by the Worcester
Wreath Company of Maine. Recalling the visual impression of
his visit to Arlington Cemetery at the age of12, Morrill Worces-
ter decided to ship all the wreaths to be placed on each veteran 's
grave site which was covered with snow.


Florida Wing Cadets Zackery Macdonald and Robert
Robinson flank Colonel Buddy Harris as they listen to speeches

"learned that freedom is not free and we owe a great deal
to our veterans who sacrifice much and readily fought and
fight today to protect it."

God figures in two new plays at theaters in West Palm Beach


p


Two plays opened this past
weekend in West Palm
Beach. Coincidentally, both
of them debate the existence
of God. Even stranger, both
are largely comic, but with
inescapable philosophical
implications.
"Goldie, Max & Milk" is
the funnier production, pre-
sented at Kravis Center for a
long run though Jan. 16.
A woman, Karen Hart-
man, wrote "Goldie, Max
& Milk." Another woman,
Margaret M. Ledford, di-
rects the show, which has
four female characters and
just one male.
It is interesting and amus-
ing to note the character
of Mike (David Hemphill)
though played breezily for
laughs, is essential to the
premise of the play (and to
the existence of all men).
Mike is sperm donor to the
lesbian, atheist single-mom
Maxine (Erin Joy Schmidt),
whose lover Lisa (Carla
Harting) has left her after
convincing Max to become
a mother. Oh, and by the
way Mike, a free-wheeling
dope dealer, is Lisa's ne'er-
do well-younger brother.
Max is poor, afraid and inse-
cure in her crummy Brook-
lyn apartment, and perhaps
because of this she is having
trouble lactating; producing
the mother's milk essential
to the good health of her in-
fant. She doesn't believe in
God, but as an optimist she
allows there could be some-
thing called the soul.
In desperation Max calls a


social worker named Goldie
(Deborah L. Sherman), who
is an Orthodox Jew and a
"lactation coach" for nurs-
ing mothers.
Who knew there was such
a thing? I certainly did not,
but the device allows for a
comedic clash of cultures
and beliefs as "New-Agey,"
anti-organized-religion
Max is forced to cope with
a woman whose views are
so set and so diametrically
opposed to her own.
But wait, there's more to
test Goldie's mettle. Her el-
dest daughter Shayna (Sar-
ah Lord) is what you could
delicately call "bi-curious,"
and she is fascinated by
mom's newest client.
Sex is a funny thing, and
playwright Hartman milks
the subject (pardon the pun)
for maximum effect. On the
other hand there is real pain
in the characters of down,
out, but not defeated Max;
loving, nurturing but rigid
Goldie, and her uncertain,
vulnerable daughter Shay-
na, who is enduring a pain-
ful sexual identity crisis of
her own.
At times "Goldie, Max &
Milk" is like a TV sitcom,
with fast-flung bon mots
and quick comebacks, but
then it hits back with doses
of real emotion. This is not
a comedy for everyone,
but for people who want to
explore and appreciate the
greater value of true "fam-
ily values," it is reassuring
to know we still can laugh.
Tickets are $47 and $50.
Call 800-514-3837 or visit
www.floridastage.org.


Freud and C.S. Lewis
Debate God's Existence
"Freud's Last Session" is a
paradoxical comedy by Mark
St. Germain, playing through
Feb. 6 at Palm Beach Drama-
works, 322 Banyan St., West
Palm Beach. Producing artis-
tic director is William Hayes.
The play is paradoxical be-
cause it is not really a co-
medy at all but an extended
debate between two intel-
lectuals representing oppo-
sing spectrums of human
faith, values and belief.
Dr. Sigmund Freud (Dennis
Creaghan, uncannily resem-
bling the famed thinker) was
the father of modern psycho-
analysis and a staunch athe-
ist.
C.S. Lewis (portrayed by
Chris Oden) was a novelist
and allegorist whose works
such as "The Chronicles of
Namia" are being read and
re-interpreted to this day.
Lewis was probably Eng-
land's most ardent defender
of the Christian faith, which
he declared publicly in his
apologia "The Pilgrim's Re-
gress" in 1933.
Playwright St. Germain
finds a kinship in these di-
vergent characters through
their intellectual brilliance,
their restless quest for
knowledge, their courage to
face and challenge any op-
ponent, and not the least of
all, their ready, self-depre-
cating wit.
The play is set in London at
the crucial point in the year
1939 When King George VI
is about to make his famous
Sept. 3 speech regretfully
announcing England's dec-


laration of war against Ger-
many and its allies.
Freud has summoned the
younger professor and wri-
ter to his study for an un-
specified reason. There is
a lot going on at the time.
London is evacuating,
planes are flying overhead,
and air raid sirens are being
tested.
As a result Lewis is late,
allowing Freud some good-
natured scolding. This sets
the combative tone of their
meeting. Freud has read
"Pilgrim's Regress," and
he wants to know why a
highly-intelligent, other-
wise rational man can sud-
denly express a belief in a
man who died 2,000 years
ago claiming to be the Son
of God and the savior of all
who would believe in him.
Freud is desperately ill
with oral cancer, and only
too well-aware of his own
mortality, which gives an
added edge to the question
of where one spends eter-
nity after this physical life
is over.
Having been raised in a reli-
gious home (I am a preach-
er's grandkid), I have heard
these debates a thousand
times. Rarely have I heard
the opposing points of view
expressed so eloquently and
cleverly.
I think the point of the play-
wright is that dialogue is es-
sential if opposing factions
are ever to live together
in peace. This play is per-
formed quickly in less than
90 minutes, without inter-
mission. In that brief inter-
lude it leaves one with the


feeling maybe there is hope for communication regardless
of poles of belief as long as individuals respect a worthy
opponent.
Tickets are $47. Parking is just $1 an hour at the nearby City
Center Garage (first hour free) and it is free on Sunday. Call
561-514-4042 or visit www.palmbeachdramaworks.org.

REBECCA REPORTS

By Rebecca Coleman


The best is yet to come...


in 2011!


Happy New Year
everyone!
We bid farewell
to 2010, but as
Frank Sinatra
sang, "The Best
is yet to Come"
in 2011!
Culture is still
alive in Palm
Beach County
despite a diffi-
cult year. Hot on
the heels of the Festival of
the Arts BOCA 2011 dates
announcement comes news
of a Palm Beach Cultural
Council Muse Award for
Outstanding Festival. The
Awards will be presented
Feb. 10 at the Kravis Cen-
ter. Proceeds from the event
will benefit the Cultural
Council's education pro-
grams.
Boca's very own Carbo-
nell-winning Caldwell The-
atre Company is producing
three plays this coming sea-
son all of them fresh from
Broadway and the New
York awards season. First
up on Jan. 2 is Bruce Nor-
ris's provocative comedy,
Clyboume Park. Opening
night is Jan. 4. So treat
yourself to a seat subscrip-
tion for three months of
comedy and drama.
Businesses continue to sup-


port non-profits. The recent
opening of the first stand-
alone Ulysses Nardin luxu-
ry Swiss watch boutique at
Town Center Mall attracted
over 400 guests. PR pros
Tilson Communications
pulled out all the stops in-
cluding special guest re-
tired baseball great, Randy
Johnson (pardon the pun).
A live auction of a lim-
ited edition watch raised
$35,000 for Boca Raton
Regional Hospital. The Bo-
ca-based watch company
also announced plans for
the opening of a new 7,000
square foot headquarters
building in the spring.
I found a quiet comer to
catch up with the Mall's
Marketing Director Ellen
Korelitz who told me the
good news that two new
retailers are scheduled to
open in the spring with


more to be an-
nounced. New
York fashion de-
signer Betsey
Johnson and Bra-
zilian label Santa


S Lola shoes and
handbags will
S both open new
stores in the com-
ing weeks.
The Grand Open-
ing Celebration of
the new Boca Raton City
Furniture and Ashley Fur-
niture HomeStores on Jan.
13 will benefit Florida At-
lantic University and Hos-
pice by the Sea with a silent
auction of furniture items
and room groups. Another
first for Boca: The Airport
Road store will be the first
LEED (Leadership in En-
ergy and Environmental
Design) certified green fur-
niture store to be built in
the United States.
So stay warm and stay busy
and don't blink because
Valentine's Day is just
around the comer!

And that is life in Boca...

Dido is looking for a new home for the New Year


Story, photo by
Pam D Addio

BOCA RATON Hi, every-
one, I'm Dido.
Wanna see my whole body
wag. Just approach my ken-
nel. I love to meet new peo-
ple, so how about we get
together and see if we're a
match?
I'm a Golden Retriever/
Lab/Chow mix, a year and
a half old, a neutered male
weighing about 40 pounds.
I'm a very happy, energetic
dog who loves to have fun.
I get along well with other
dogs and I'd love a doggie
sibling, but I chase all small
critters with reckless aban-
don (it's fun!), so no cats,
please!
I'm a unique and handsome
young dog, so I'll look great
as part of your family. Take
me home for the holidays!
I'm available for adoption at


Tri-County Humane Soci-
ety, a no-kill animal shelter
located at 21287 Boca Rio
Road in Boca Raton. The
shelter is open for adop-
tions Tuesday through Sun-
day, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Adoption fees for compan-
ion animals are $110 and
up.
Animals are heartworm-
tested and up-to-date on
vaccinations. Included in
the adoption fee is one year
of free office visits to Re-
gency Veterinary Clinic.
Please visit us to find a lost
pet or to consider adding a
shelter dog or cat to your
family. We have puppies
and kittens, too! Call (561)

FAITH
By Pr. Sandy Huntsman



The End of a thing


I have known many to start
something, but few to fin-
ish. I've known many who
had glorious dreams, but
know few who saw them
realized. Solomon, Israel's
renowned king, writes in
Ecclesiastes 7:8 "The end
of a thing is better than its
beginning."
Soldiers going off to war
understand the wisdom
of this statement. Is not
the end of a thing better
than the beginning for that
soldier? How he longs to
complete his tour and be
safely home! Imagine the
joy of a ship's captain leav-
ing for a far port. When he
returns with all his cargo
he remembers the storms
and dangers he weathered.
He recalls the days without
the sun and the treacherous
nights without the stars; the
fear of the rogue waves and
being lost at sea. Oh the joy
of the end of a thing...

1. This verse reminds us of
the cycles of life.
This verse can help relieve
the sting of regrets. An-
other year has become a
part of history. Perhaps you
are mindful of opportuni-
ties that you have missed
or mistakes that you have
made. We are so tempted
to say "Oh! If I could have
just lived that over again."


So many people say, "My,
how time flies! I wish I had
this year over! I would love
to fix this or that." Do we
really want to do it over...
would we really do things
differently? Again Solo-
mon writes in Ecclesiastes
7:10 "Do not say, "Why
were the former days better
than these? For you do not
inquire wisely concerning
this." It is not wise to wish
to go back in time. Be like
that ship's captain for a mo-
ment. Would you really like
to relive the storms of life
you have experienced?
Like the tune from Fiddler
on the Roof, "Sunrise, sun-
set... sunrise, sunset; swift-
ly fly the years," life moves
in cycles. If you are in a
storm right now know that
it will not last forever... joy
can come in the morning.
Winter will end; spring is
coming.

2. This verse can encourage
us about the future.
This year will come to an
end, but there is next year.
This year is history but next
year is a new canvas for us
to paint what we will. Last
year's choices are a matter
of record, but if this year
is going to be different we
must take action. If the end
is to be better than the be-
ginning, there must be a


beginning. You cannot end
what you do not begin!
Philip Yancey writes in his
book Where is God When
It Hurts, "You hurt all over.
You hear a groaning sound
and an awful, sudden fear
rushes in on you. It is hap-
pening your world is col-
lapsing. You're sure it's the
end. You see a piercing
blinding light. Cold, rough
hands pull at you. A painful
slap. Waaaahhh! Congrat-
ulations! You've just been
born."
If that is birth, what makes
us think life will be any
easier. Someone has like-
ned our lives to the devel-
opment of diamonds. Only
intense heat and tremen-
dous pressure can change
coal into a diamond. Once
it has undergone that great
and tremendous pressure
it is mined and a jeweler
begins to shape it. In or-
der to shape it, the jeweler
cuts away a great deal of
the diamond. No doubt this
process would be painful to
the diamond, but only after
the pressure and the cutting
is the diamond a beautiful
gem stone. If you are under
pressure or if your life is
being pruned right now, be
assured that the end is bet-
ter than the beginning. It is
worth it!

T)e Jgoca Jaton Tribune


WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?
By Gerald Sherman

'Tis the season to remember

your social responsibility


Our schools today are tea-
ching social responsibility by
requiring students to do some
community service. They
are learning early on that it's
the right thing to do!
This time of the year is a
good time to remind busi-
nesses to share the joy of
the season with others by
remembering their social re-
sponsibility. Businesses have
the unique opportunity to
practice their social respon-
sibilities while at the same
time improving their image
and thus their profits. One of
the opportunities is working
with non-profit organiza-
tions.
Partnering/sponsoring with
a non-profit is a direct way
to serve the community.
Non-profits need to get their
word out and this is where
for-profit businesses/ser-
vices have the chance to be-
come involved.
This symbiotic relationship
can prove to be a benefit
for all...the non-profit, the
business organization and
the public they serve. This
association with a non-profit
gives the commercial orga-
nization the chance to both
serve the community and
receive positive public opin-
ion. Both smaller and larger
non-profits need positive
public opinion, media atten-
tion and help in conducting
events to raise funds. Their


survival depends on reaching
their target market.
Non-profits like the United
Way, Multiple Sclerosis
Society, the Red Cross and
other large non-profits do
employ public relations
personnel and advertise but
most non-profits try to do
PR in house by members or
volunteers or relationships
with companies that can
support their needs. There
are always opportunities
available to companies who
wish to be socially respon-
sible and partner with non-
profits.
Naturally, when a com-
mercial enterprise supports
a non-profit it should con-
sider some of the following:
* Is it serving the needs of
the community?
* Does it align itself with
your company's culture,
product or service?
* How active do we want
to be? How active do they
want the partner to be?
One of the ways of support-
ing a non-profit is spon-
sorships of special events.
It brings your company's
product to the attention of
the audience. It also enables
a company to reach the tar-
get audience in a specific
geographical area.
This partner/sponsorship
program combines local ad-
vertising, public relations,
promotions and philanthro-


pic activity. Many compa-
nies find this cost-effective
due to fewer expenses in-
volved in marketing the
event. The charitable orga-
nization does CO-OP adver-
tising with the commercial
company and the charity
does all the marketing with
the participating company's
logo which is identified
with the charitable cause in
all the advertisements, mail-
ers and brochures.
The company sponsoring a
fashion show or band con-
cert is assured of an audi-
ence that will relate to their
target market. The main
thing is for companies to
be pro-active in working
with charitable causes and
to make sure they are com-
patible with the product/ser-
vice they are marketing.
Social responsibility for
commercial entities is clear;
become active in the com-
munity and look to help oth-
ers. It will pay big dividends
in knowing you served.
After all, being socially re-
sponsible is the right thing
to do!
Wishing you a wonderful
and Happy New Year!

Former Student gives back to the center that gave him his foundation


1 am so grateful that IViKe was able to donate gijts this
holiday season and give me the opportunity to give back to
the kids at the Florence Fuller Child Development Center


BOCA RATON, FL Steve
Geffrard #1 U.S. Amateur
Heavyweight Boxer headed
to the 2012 Summer Olym-
pic Trials of Boca Raton
knows firsthand the impor-
tance of giving back. As
a former student that was
able to overcome adversity
from an early age through
the warm and caring envi-
ronment that the Florence
Fuller Child Development
Center of Boca Raton pro-
vided when there was no
one at home to take care
of him, it was the stepping
stone he needed to excel on
his path in life.
Steve, now 20-years-old,
continued on by earning an
academic scholarship to the
prestigious St. Andrew's
High School and began pur-
suing boxing competitively
at the age of 13-years-old.


Since then, Steve has won
four national boxing cham-
pionships and two world
championships to become
the top-ranked heavyweight
boxer in the U.S. and a
member of the USA Box-
ing National Team. Steve
will also be attending Nova

E. U
hi~~~ = ih


Southeastern University in
January 2011 where he will
pursue a degree in busi-
ness with the ultimate goal
to represent the U.S. in the
2012 Summer Olympics
London.
After recently hearing that
donations were down for
the older kids at Florence
Fuller Child Development
Center, Steve decided to
partner with his first en-
dorser Nike to provide a
gift to each child this holi-
day season. During the
holidays the smallest chil-
dren are always the first to
receive a gift at Florence
Fuller, but unfortunately,
the kids ranging from 10-
13 years of age are not as
fortunate. Thanks to help
of Steve and Nike though,
at Tuesday's Florence Full-
er's Holiday Party in Boca
Raton, each child received
a donated gift from Nike
personally handed out by
Steve.
"I am so grateful that Nike
was able to donate gifts this
holiday season and give
me the opportunity to give
back to the kids at the Flor-


I A j
Taylor Henry, Steve Geffrard and two kids from the Florence
Fuller Child Develpment Center


Kids at that the Florence Fuller Child Development Center
pose with Steve Geffrard and Taylor Henry with their presents


ence Fuller Child Develop-
ment Center a program
that did so much for me
growing up," said Steve
Geffrard. "I was happy to
see all of the smiles on the
kids' faces."
Taylor Henry, 19-years-
old and another alumnus
of Florence Fuller Child
Development Centers who
attended pre-school with
Steve, was aware of the
shortfall of Christmas gifts


this year and asked her
boss, Bruce Young, Co-
Owner of Delray Motors, if
he could help make a differ-
ence. Bruce Young agreed
without hesitation to help
as well and provided Taylor
with a check to purchase
gifts for the children.
Having been one of the
children of Florence Fuller
Child Development Cen-
ters, Taylor knew what
this meant to the children


and stated "I have so many
happy memories as a child
because of Florence Fuller,
I wanted to do what I could
to help give back during the
holiday season."
For more than three deca-
des, Florence Fuller Child
Development Centers
(FFCDC) has made a posi-
tive difference in the lives
of young children from
economically challenged
families in our commu-
nity. Florence Fuller Child
Development Centers has
been providing quality
childcare, early education,
family support programs
and the only Head Start
preschool in Boca Raton
for over 39 years. FFCDC
prepares children for a life-
time commitment to learn-
ing and social achievement,
while empowering their
families to build a brighter
future.

By: Bobby Lopez, PGA

You are not a professional,
so don't be too critical of
your development. It takes
time. However, you can
use your limited time far
better than most amateurs.
Remember what we said
about the way most people
practice golf? These play-
ers are actually practicing
bad habits. If you practice
properly, you will save
a lot of time and find the
game of golf much more
rewarding. Proper practice
will build motor memory;
in other words, good hab-
its. With the right motor
memory, you will be able
to avoid that bunker on
Number 18, even with the
whole gallery (the geeks in
the lounge) watching.
Many teaching profession-
als, while giving excellent
hands-on instruction, don't
give students a means for
continuing self-critique.
They don't provide a spe-


cific practice plan or a way
for students to observe their
own development after
completing a few lessons.
Consequently, golfers tend
to slip into their old habits,
or they develop new swing
faults without even realiz-
ing it.
Golfers don't plan to fail
they simply fail to plan.
What makes the Bobby Lo-
pez Program uniquely ef-
fective is that it gives you a
plan. Not only does it help
you understand your own
golf swing, but it also gives
you a specific regimen
to follow a program built
around your own needs.
It teaches you to give your-
self the kind of feedback
you really need in order to
develop. You will learn to
practice with awareness,
observing your develop-
ment as you move through
the program. You will doc-
ument your progress. Fol-
low the plan and you will
improve far more rapidly

O-


than you imagined pos-
sible.
Most of you have never
even come close to prac-
ticing golf in an organized
way, the way touring pro-
fessionals practice. Now
you will have the oppor-
tunity and the guidance to
do so. Remember, practice
does not make perfect; per-
fect practice makes perfect.

CRANK UP THE HEAT
By Pedro Heizer


RUN DLC: Miami Runs Over

ng Champions in Los Angeles


In a game that has been o-
ver hyped since the schedu-
le was released over the
summer, the Heat, behind a
triple-double from LeBron
James, beat the 2-time de-
fending NBA Champions
Lakers, 96-80, Saturday at
Staples Center.
Miami was led by LeB-
ron's 27 points, 11 re-
bounds, 10 assists and four
steals. Chris Bosh tallied
24 points and 13 rebounds,
and Dwyane Wade chipped
in with 18 points and six
assists.
For the Lakers, Kobe Bry-
ant and Pau Gasol each
finished with 17 points
and Lamar Odom helped
with 14 points and nine re-
bounds.
There is no other way to
say this, but, Los Ange-
les rolled over and Miami,
which led by as many as
21, leave as is.
Los Angeles' effort against
Miami was especially sur-
prising after just being
embarrassed by the lowly
Bucks three days ago. In the
past 15 games, Miami has
been 13-2, with losses com-
ing only to the Dallas Mav-
ericks, while the Lakers have
been a mediocre 8-7 and
are now 2-4 against teams
with a winning record.
Game MVP: LeBron Ja-
mes
LeBron James was simply
sensational on Saturday;
there is nothing more that
needs to be said. LeBron


raises his game to another
level when there's a big
game (Cleveland, Knicks,
and Lakers). LeBron's tri-
ple-double was just what
Miami needed to keep the
snake charmer and his gang
far away from a win.
Biggest Surprise of the
Game: Mario Chalmers
Chalmers, who logged his
third most minutes this sea-
son, finished with 13 points
and hit three 3-pointers.
Chalmers came into the
game averaging 5.2 points
per game, but in his last
three games he is averaging
12.3 points.
Tough Night: Kobe Bry-
ant
Dwyane Wade and compa-
ny held Kobe Bryant to only
17 points. There is nothing
that can be done when your
best player only scored 17
points in a important game.
After the game, a frustrated
Bryant told the media, "We
always suck on Christmas.
I don't think we're mean
enough to show up on


Christmas Day and play."
The Lakers also lost to
Miami on Christmas Day
2004, and they were man-
handled by LeBron James
and the Cleveland Cava-
liers last Christmas.
Lights Out Performance:
Chris Bosh
Chris Bosh played probably
one of his best games in a
Miami Heat uniform. Bosh
gobbled up 13 rebounds
to go with his 24 points.
This is the Chris Bosh Pat
Riley envisioned playing
when he inked him to his 6
year deal. A double-double
machine, something we've
been missing since the days
of Shaquille O'Neal.
Stat of the Night: 40
The number of years that
have elapsed since a player
posted a triple-double on
Christmas Day. Only three
players have accomplished
the feat along with James:
Billy Cunningham, John
Havlicek,and Oscar Rob-
ertson.

Knights Men's Hoops

Outshot by Indianapolis


By: Steve Kramer

BOCA RATON, FL De-
spite putting five players
in double-figures, the Lynn
University men's basket-
ball team fell to the Uni-
versity of Indianapolis, 94-
86, Sunday night at the de
Hoemle Sports & Cultural
Center in the LU Courtyard
by Marriott Holiday Clas-
sic. The Fighting Knights
fall to 2-8 while the Grey-
hounds improve to 7-2.
Chris Hall recorded 20
points to lead the Fighting
Knights on 6-16 shooting
and also posted a team-high
five assists.
Junior Cameron McCal-
lum had a double-double
in his debut in the Blue &
White, tallying 18 points
and 12 rebounds in just 25
minutes. The transfer from
Nicholls State University in
Thibodaux, La., went 7-9
from the floor and also got
to the line ten times.
Jovan Robinson also
scored 18 for the Fighting
Knights while Josh Garcia
and Jimmy Gaskins pitched
in with 12 and 11 points, re-
spectively.
LU shot well from the
field going 48.1% on the
night, but Indy shot better
at 50.8%. Both teams also
made their share of threes
with Lynn making 12 and
the 'Hounds sinking 11 on


an identical 27 attempts.
Hall, Robinson and Garcia
all made three treys apiece
for the Fighting Knights.
Lynn took the lead on its
opening possession with a
three-pointer by Hall but
Indianapolis would tie the
game at three, and again at
five. After that, the Grey-
hounds were in control and
made five threes in their
next six possessions to take
a 20-13 lead.
The Fighting Knights
would cut the lead back to
two at 27-25 on a three by
Garcia with 8:31 to go in
the half, but Indy went on a
14-3 run and went into the
break up 54-42.
Indy would hold a large
lead throughout the second
half but Lynn fought back
to within four on another
three by Garcia with 2:03
remaining. After a stop,
Lynn had an opportunity
to cut it to a one posses-
sion game but would turn
the ball over which would
seal the deal for the Grey-
hounds.
Lynn will be back in action
January 2, 2011 when they
travel to Saint Leo Univer-
sity for a 4 pm Sunshine
State Conference game.
Fans can follow the action
by logging onto www.Lyn-
nFightingKnights.com and
