In 1880, James Garfield
became the only sitting
member of the House and
the only clergyman to
become president. But it
was weird. That year, the
Republicans were torn by
the rivalry between two
has-beens: former presi-
dent Ulysses Grant and
former candidate James
Blaine. On the 36th bal-
lot, everybody gave up
and picked Garfield, who
ended up getting shot to
death by a disgruntled
Grant supporter.

Founder of Spani

River Church

Dr. R David Nicho(l .

dies at age 79

BOCA RATON - Dr. P. David
Nicholas, 79, founding pastor
of Spanish River Church in Boca Raton, died Jan. 25.
Dr. Nicholas started the church in 1967 with a small group of
people meeting in an empty storefront and continued to serve
there for 42 years.
Under Dr. Nicholas' leadership, SRC planted more than 200
churches in the United States and around the world, accor-
ding to the SRC website.
Dr. Nicholas also co-founded the Acts 29 Network "He was
an incredible supporter of our church and mentor to me and
our pastors," said Chan Kilgore, Acts 29 board member and
planter of CrossPointe Church in Orlando.
Pastor Mark Driscoll founded the Acts 29 Network with Dr.
Nicholas in 2000. He was influential in starting many cur-
rent Acts 29 churches, and provided much support for many
church planters.
The church posted the following information on its website:
David will be missed terribly here, but his legacy of preach-
ing the Bad News and Good News Gospel will live on in the
countless lives that have been touched by his faithful sha-
ring of his Christian faith. While we are grieved, we are also
blessed. He is, of course, injubilant celebration with the Mes-
siah he loves so dearly.
He leaves behind his wife and lifelong partner, Eleanor Ni-
cholas; three sons, grandchildren and all those who knew him
as their spiritual father.
A memorial service was held at Spanish River Church Sun-
day Jan. 30.
The family has requested that any gifts or donations be made
to Spanish River Church marked for "Church Planting," 2400

campus to be
By Dale M King

BOCA RATON - Are you
ready for some football?
The Fighting Owls of Flor-
ida Atlantic University are.
In fact, for nearly a dozen
years, they have longed to
play home games on Boca
Raton turf.
They'll get that wish in
October when the new
30,000-seat stadium on the
Boca Raton campus will be
Thomas Donaudy, uni-
versity architect and vice
president for facilities, said
Tuesday that the doors of
the massive building will
be opened to the public on
Oct. 15 - in time for the
2011 football season.
Since it was formed in
1999, the FAU football
team has played its home
games either in Miami or
at Lockhart Stadium in Fort
Donaudy told the Federa-
tion of Boca Raton Home-
owners Association about
the stadium, then fielded
about a half-hour of ques-
tions about how the arena
will affect traffic - par-
ticularly on Glades Road,
considered one of the most
glutted in the county.
"We anticipated 12,000
parking spaces" for the
stadium. At least initially,
he said, home crowds will
probably not fill the grid-
iron complex, but "we hope
to build that figure."
The FAU architect said
Glades Road traffic is at
its worst from Monday
through Friday, but is not as
bad on Saturday when most
games will be played.
He said the university will
play six home games this

completed by
coming fall, but is allowed
by the city to conduct a to-
tal of 15 ticketed events in
the stadium - including the
football games. On-cam-
pus, non-ticketed events
like athletic practices and
band rehearsals don't count
against that 15.
Some in the crowd ex-
pressed concerns about
the impact on traffic, and
several also questioned
the concept of two new
entrances to the campus.
Donaudy pointed out on a
master plan map that the
entries are only in the pro-
posal stage.
City Councilwoman Con-
stance Scott spoke highly
of the new on-campus sta-
dium, even with six home
games. "Think of the ex-
citement, and the impact on
the economy. I have lived
in a college town, Ann Ar-
bor. The traffic comes in,
the traffic goes out. People
will get accustomed to the
schedule" of events.
The audience was also con-
cerned about the impact
of the new interchange for
1-95. Donaudy said traf-
fic will enter and exit via

Spanish River Boulevard,
and not the campus itself.
It will help relieve the glut
of students entering and
leaving the campus, but he
said FAU is also working
with Palm Tran and shuttle
services to improve tran-
sit. During football games,
he said, Palm Beach State
College has also agreed to
allow two-thirds of its park-
ing lot on its Boca campus
to be used for football park-
Features of the 30,000-seat
stadium include: 24 suites,
26 loge boxes, a four-level
press box,1,000+ out-
door premier club seats;
4,000+ priority club seats,
an air-conditioned, indoor
8,000-square-foot premier
club that can be accessed
by suite, loge and premier
club seat holders; a cov-
ered, 16,000-square-foot
outdoor priority club locat-
ed between the premier and
priority club levels that can
be accessed by suite, loge,
premier and priority club
seat holders; wider pre-
mium seats and a student-
and-band-only section in
the south end zone.

West Boca woman charged with illegally

injecting clients with Botox
BOCA RATON - A West Boca Raton woman who has allegedly been injecting clients
with Botox, but reportedly has no license, has been arrested following the hospitaliza-
tion of one of her patients, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.
The suspect, identified as Nora Patricia Hidalgo, 56, was recently arrested and charged
with practicing without a license resulting in bodily injury and with possession with
intent to sell drugs without a prescription.
PBSO said she allegedly received the drug from friends who had visited other coun-
tries. They claim Hidalgo also went to other states to do Botox injections.
The arrest follows an investigation that began last November when a sheriff's detective
and an investigator from the Florida Department of Health, posing as potential clients,
consulted with Hidalgo, who quoted treatments and prices, a PBSO report said.
A woman from Miami recently notified PBSO when her face began to swell after re-
ceiving an injection from Hidalgo.
The suspect was reportedly giving the injections in her condo, which the PBSO report
said had an examination room, certificates on the walls and medical supplies.
Hidalgo was reportedly offering injections at a cost of $300 each, PBSO said.

Will we continue to explore the

'final frontier?' ,"11

The 25th anniversary of
the horrible explosion that
tore apart the space shuttle
Challenger and killed seven
brave souls caught me by
It wasn't something I antici-
pated. Yet that terrible date,
Jan. 28, had been burned
into my memory since the
day it happened in 1986.
I remember the phone call
from my managing edi-
tor, good friend and fellow
space aficionado Randy Szy-
ba telling me to get into work
right away. A space shuttle
had blown up on launch
from Cape Canaveral. He
had seen it live on one of the
TV news networks, one of
the few at the time that was
covering shuttle launches.
Yes, at the time, we were in
a space lull. Shuttle launch-
es were becoming second
nature, and they barely ma-
de news at all.
This mission, however, was
special. On board was the
first "Teacher in Space," a
curly-haired brunette named
Christa Corrigan McAuliffe.
She taught in nearby New
Hampshire, but we Bay
Staters knew that she and
her family were from Fram-
ingham, Mass.
Teachers in many schools

throughout New England
had geared lesson plans to
the event, and were watch-
ing TV in their classrooms
to experience a moment
they hoped would broaden
their understanding of space
travel and the ramifications
it had on their own lives - on
technology and information
we would not have had un-
less we explored the stars.
Instead, these youngsters
endured the moment 73
seconds after liftoff when
the bright, shiny shuttle and
its even-larger external fuel
tank were engulfed in a ball
of smoke - with odd arm-
like projections going off in
several directions.
The people on the ground
looked up quizzically, won-
dering why they could no
longer see the shuttle. Chris-
ta's family was there. And
then came a cold, cruel
voice over the loud speaker
saying, "We have lost our
downlink." In other words,
there was no radio contact.
Challenger was gone.
On the TV screen flashed
pre-launch pictures of the
crew - of their flight train-
ing and exercise program.
There was that unforgettable
and gut-wrenching foot-
age of the crew heading for

the ship, smiling and
waving at the crowd.
On board the shuttle
(STS-51L) that day
were Commander
Dick Scobee; pilot
Michael J. Smith;
mission specialists
Judith Resnik, Elli-
son Onizuka and Ron
McNair; and payload A, "-
specialists Gregory
Jarvis and McAu-
liffe. The mission was the
25th operational flight of
the space shuttle and the
10th for Challenger.
I will never forget those
That night, President Rea-
gan offered a speech to com-
fort and reassure a shaken
nation. "We've never lost
an astronaut in flight," he
said. But my mind flashed
back to that previous space
program tragedy - the day
in early 1967 when Gus
Grissom, Ed White and
Roger Chaffee were killed
in a flash fire that consumed
their capsule on a launch
Lately, I've talked to people
here in Florida who actually
saw the plumes of smoke
that enveloped Challenger.
"We knew something was
wrong," said one.

Many programs and memo-
rial services have been held
this past week to honor the
member and legacy of Chal-
lenger. But will that lega-
cy survive. It appears the
space program is winding
down, with only three more
shuttle missions left. Then
what? There doesn't seem
to much "fire in the belly"
to continue to explore what
Star Trek Captains James T.
Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard and
Jonathan Archer called "the
final frontier."
If there is a legacy, it should
be the one put forward by
President John F Kennedy,
who promised we would
put a man on the moon by
the end of the 1960s - and
we did it.
We should not mourn for
Christa McAuliffe and the
others who gave their lives
in the pursuit of space ex-
ploration. We should con-
tinue their journey.

'Greenify' may not be a word,

but it certainly is a good idea

As you will read on page 11
of this edition of the Boca
Raton Tribune, Mayor Su-
san Whelchel and members
of the five Rotary Clubs in
Boca Raton are working on
a project that will encour-
age young people to help
"greenify" the city.
I've never heard the word
'greenify' before, but it de-
scribes what the mayor and
the Rotaries want to do.
As explained by Dave
Freudenberg, former presi-
dent of the Rotary Club of
Boca Raton and now the
assistant district governor,
the mayor has issued her
"Green Cup Challenge."
She wants school-age

Who's planning to run?
Feb. 2 was the first day for
residents to declare their
candidacy for office in the

March 8 city election in
Boca Raton.
So far, only the incumbents
have filed the appropriate
documentation to seek an-
other term in office - May-
or Susan Whelchel, Deputy
Mayor and Councilwoman
Susan Haynie and Council-
man Mike Mullaugh.
City Clerk Susan Saxton
said that if no one files to
oppose any of the candi-
dates, there will be no elec-
tion - and the incumbents
will win by default.
But Haynie, at the Fed-
eration of Boca Raton
Homeowners Associations
meeting Tuesday, said that
someone - we're not sure
who - recently took a can-
didate package from the
city clerk's office. It could
mean that there will be
some action in the political
arena this year.
Anyone planning to run
must file their documents
by 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb.
10. It may be a few days
before we know which
non-incumbent is eying po-
litical office.

We offer our condolences
Those of us at the Boca
Raton Tribune join with
other mourners to offer
condolences to the family
of Dr. P. David Nicholas,
the founder pastor of Span-
ish River Church, who died
Jan. 25 at the age of 79.

The minister helped cre-
ate a church out of an old
storefront, and then moved
into a beautiful campus on
Yamato Road. There is
both a church and a school
But Dr. Nicholas did more
than just run the church.
He was known as a "plant-
er," planting similar houses
of worship in various cities
around the nation. He is
said to have planted about
200 in all.
He was truly a man of God,
as his former congregation
will attest.
Our s1 path\ goes out
to his wife, Eleanor, their
three sons and their grand-
children. We know his
legacy will be honored for
years to come.

Keep track of what's go-
ing on
A woman recently asked
the Boca Raton City Coun-
cil to post a list of city
events on Channel 20, the
Boca cable channel.
That's not a bad idea. But
we have a better one. If
you have an event, send it
to us at the Boca Raton Tri-
bune. We will list it in the
print product and also on-
line. After all, we are your
closest neighbor.

If You Need Not Be a Failure!

Failures are made, not born!
They're often the result of
allowing all kinds of nega-
tive whispers to weaken the
confidence you've already
received via talents, gifts
and passion for achieving
specific endeavors!
Yet, whenever you feel re-
sponsible for any failure,
your first thought should be
that it need not be perma-
nent. Quite often, a failure
is simply a prelude to suc-
cess! Or, as Dr. Erwin W.
Lutzer entitled one of his
books, "Failure - The Back
Door to Success." Indeed,
any failure which occurs
amidst one's trying hard
is simply another step to-
wards eventual triumph!
No individual, consciously,
ever plans to be a failure,
but the choices some per-
sons make can only lead
them there or, at its best,
to a mediocre accomplish-
ment unless proper repa-
rations are s \iftl\ made.
But, as it has been wisely
pointed out, "failures and
mistakes can be a bridge,
not a barricade, to success."
Some fail in school be-

cause they choose not to
assume the responsibility
of study and homework be-
yond what is taken in class.
Their neglect and procras-
tination catch up with them
and they end up missing
altogether what otherwise
could be the best for them!
Others never make it in
the labor force because
for them having fun takes
precedence over the faith-
ful discharge of their daily
duties. Too much partying
makes them too tired or too
sick to get to work on time,
or forces them to miss days
of labor, or to arrive at the
location of employment
unable to perform their as-
signment. To paraphrase
the words of a well-known
Psalm, partying may persist
all night, but accountability
awaits you in the morning!
People should approach
their responsibilities and
toils with confidence, in
spite of whatever difficul-
ties they may encounter
along the way. Some people
will definitely fail through
inaction; others will fail on
account of wrong action; a

few more will fail due to
personal, paralyzing hesi-
tation. A good perspective
from Abraham Lincoln,
challenges: "Whatever you
are, be a good one." Human
failures are preventable!
Any performance is, from
the outset, an act of faith.
For that reason, never put
any limitations on yourself;
simply recognize the re-
sources God has bestowed
on you to reach your full
potential. Yet, if any fail-
ure occurs, make every ef-
fort to transcend it, to move
beyond where you may
find yourself stuck! In the
words of John L. Mason,
"we attain only in propor-
tion to what we attempt."
For many years I had car-
ried with me a card with the
words: "I'd rather attempt
to do something great and
fail, than to attempt to do
nothing and succeed!" I
may have lost the card but
not the challenge it poses.
Victory is the inevitable
outcome when dedication
to a task and persistence to-
ward its realization prevail!

But Freudenberg stressed:

it can include help to some

Local heroes help families recover at Boca

Helping Hands

By Sam Tett

Boca Helping Hands (BHH)
began as a small food center
in 1998. Twelve years later,
through the steady generosity
of our community and the hard
work of its small staff, BHH
has become a multi-faceted
organization, furnishing assis-
tance of almost every kind to
those struggling among us.
There are five fingers to the
"Helping Hand" according to
BHH's Executive Director,
James Gavrilos: "The food
service center, the pantry pro-
gram, "Blessings in a Back-
pack," the Resource Center,
and the job mentoring pro-
The food service center pro-
vides hot meals out of the
Remillard Family Resource
Center six times per week.
In 2010 alone BHH served a
staggering 28,500 hot meals -
approximately 750 per week.
"There are no questions

asked," said Gavrilos. "If you
show up, you get fed."
BHH's Pantry Program col-
lects non-perishable goods
from churches, organizations,
and community donors, us-
ing them to provide around
700 pantry bags per month
to families without access
to sufficient meals. Gavrilos
emphasized the crucial role
of the community in keeping
these programs running: "100
percent of our food is donated,
and we have wonderfully cre-
ative volunteers in our kitchen
that can make delicious meals
out of all kinds of ingredients."
"Blessings in a Backpack"
is designed for children who
receive their primary (and
sometimes their only) nutri-
tion from school dinners.
These backpacks are filled
with nutritious food to get the
kids through the weekend - a
crucial resource for struggling
families during the recession.
The Resource Center, headed

by Program Director Sally
Wells, provides direct finan-
cial assistance in case of emer-
gency situations, including
eviction, suspension of utili-
ties and inability to afford pre-
scription medications. Distrib-
uting a total of $160-170,000
per year, Sally and the Re-
source Center help people to
resolve immediate problems,
but it doesn't end there. Sally
also compiles a comprehen-
sive budget with the families,
helping them to come up with
a long-term plan for self-suf-
"We are not a homeless en-
gagement center," says Gavri-
los. "When people hit an ice
patch in their lives and cannot
seem to get traction, we help
them to get back up. Then we
show them how to take the
next steps on their own. What
we aim to do here is break the
cycle of need."
The fifth and final finger is the
Job Mentor Program, which is

perhaps the most crucial factor
in establishing independence.
By providing computer class-
es, Internet access, interview
skills, and resume coaching,
135 people found jobs through
this program in 2010 alone,
and this figure promises to rise
in 2011.
Another major focus at BHH
is food recovery: "50 percent
of America's food is liter-
ally thrown in the trash," says
Gavrilos. "It is unconscio-
nable that we have a hunger
problem in this country." If
this figure doesn't shock you,
consider that 50 percent of
that wasted food is recover-
able: "Palm Beach County
alone throws out 169 million
pounds of usable, recover-
able food per year," continues
Gavrilos. One of BHH's major
goals is to prevent this kind of
waste, and several businesses
have teamed up with the orga-
nization to help out, including
Capital Grille, Chipotle, and

Executive Director
James Gavrilos

Whole Foods.
Gavrilos characterizes the at-
mosphere at BHH as I-e 'i.nd
passion - we have a zeal and
commitment here. This or-
ganization runs entirely on
volunteers." Volunteer Coor-
dinator, Joan Sappenfield, for
example, spends 40 hours per
week at the center on a vol-
unteer basis: "The families
keep me here," she says, "I
see the changes in the children
as the families learn to break
the cycle of need." There are
many others who feel the same
way. Ann Jaakkola, the BHH
accountant, works entirely
for free: "I love being part
of a change that I can actu-
ally see," she says, "especially
when it comes to helping the
There are many ways to do-
nate to BHH, be it cans of food
or your own time. Volunteers
of all ages and walks of life
are always needed; as Gavri-
los says, "Everybody can do
something!" If you would

Bravo Caruso!

Gina and Lillo's Caruso
Restaurant is alive with su-

of entrees to sweet, sweet
The creative appetizers in-
clude scampi with sea scal-
lops sauteed with mush-
rooms in a chardonnay and
lemon sauce, delicious pro-
sciutto di Parma with flor-
dilatte cheese and roasted
peppers, an excellent pep-
per crusted yellow fin tuna
seared carpaccio with olive
oil lemon and orange zests
topped with fennel and aru-
gula, drizzed with citrus
vinaigrette. In addition we
had large Mediterranean
mussels with julienne veg-
etables in a fantastic wine/
curry sauce. The sauteed
calamari with its garlic,
white wine and grape to-
matoes was delicious as the
grilled calamari over arugu-
la with lemon and olive oil.
Two soups are featured - a
very light tortellini in broth
and as well as a smooth
pasta e fagioli with crated
cheese, both very tasty in-

Gamberi con Carciofini

Five salads are listed cove-
ring a wide variety of ingre-
dient combinations.
Variations of pasta dishes
include a spinach fettuc-
cine in tomato/cream sauce
with ground sausage, peas
and pecorino cheese - deli-
cious and filling. Likewise,
the ravioli pillows in their
tomato/cream sauce had
peas and a bit of fresh mint
- Both are winners. There
are nine additional pasta
combinations on the menu
as well.
The fresh fish selection
stars a boneless branzino
alla francese served on a
bed of spinach with mashed
potatoes. This really is a
specialty fish done here to
perfection. The Hawaiian
blue snapper - a filet sau-
teed with tomatoes plus
garlic, olives and dainty
white asparagus was a joy
to try.
Additional entrees include
three veal dishes, filet

World War II 'birds of war' land in

Boca Raton

By Donovan Ortega

The 'Wings of Freedom'
exhibit made a triumphant
return to Boca Raton last
weekend. The exhibition
was made possible by the
Collings Foundation and
featured three essential
tools in America's victory in
World War II - the B-17 and
B-24 bombers along with
the P-51 Mustang. The
planes have been restored
to their original condition.
They look, sound, and fly
just as they would have in
the 1940's.
On Sunday, January 30th,
crowds lined up to take
unguided tours of the nos-
talgic yet intimidating air-
craft. The ancient 'birds
of war' were in stark con-
trast to the sleek corporate
jets that landed and took
off from the Boca Raton
Airport runway only 100
yards away. Children ran
beneath the bomber's hulls
and pointed excitedly while
their parents attempted
to corral their intuitive
youngsters. But everyone
seemed to be impressed by
the solidity of aircraft usu-
ally only seen in postcards,
books, and in History
Channel specials. The Boca

Raton Fire Rescue Explor-
ers - a youth fire training
program - sold hotdogs, co-
kes, and candy underneath
a tent. When asked if they
pretended like they were
soldiers while walking
through the bombers, they
all agreed.
"Of course," said one
young man. "You have to
get into character."
Luckily, a "character" was
in attendance and he had a
little more hands on knowl-
edge than most. Gerald
Fahrer flew 51 combat mis-
sions in the B- 24 'Libera-
tor'. He was one of the few
veterans at the event. Fahrer
spoke enthusiastically with
those on hand, telling and
re-telling tales of his ex-
ploits while walking in the
shadows of airplanes he
once flew. In a short time

he rattled off a number of
war stories to interested
onlookers, offering his de-
cidedly unique perspec-
tive to the ancient relics of
World War II. Some of the
stories included: a seren-
dipitous audience with
the pope while on leave
in Italy, shooting off red
warning flares at confused
American forces while ta-
king down a 'wounded'
B-24 in an abandoned field,
flying into the black smoke
of a burning oil refinery on
a bombing mission in the
Alps, the sight of 1,100 air-
craft in the sky at the same
time, and the horror of be-
ing wounded in the cockpit
and attempting to fly his
B-24 back to safety with an
injured arm.
The worst part about being
wounded was the know-

ledge that his fellow sol-
diers were hurt as well, re-
called Fahrer.
"When I looked back, the
flight deck was covered in
the blood," he said.
Fahrer was quick to men-
tion the bravery and com-
mitment of his fellow sol-
diers and how fortunate he
feels to have survived the

"We lost 80 percent of our
men," he said. "When we
have reunions, most of the
men there were a part of the
ground crew."
Gerald reminisced about
his re-entrance into Amer-
ica after the war. He was
on a boat cruising into New
York harbor. He said that

thing he saw was a para-
chute jumper. The sight
struck him so deeply that
he said he fell to his knees
and thanked God.
"E \ci) day is a bonus.
That's the way I live my li-
fe," said Fahrer.
It wasn't all misty remem-
brances, however. Fahrer

was still feisty about the
rivalry between B-24 and
B-17 flight crews. He re-
fused to have his picture
taken in front of the B-17,
walking steadfastly across
the lot to the B-24 to pose.
"The B-17 boys used to
say, 'we fly higher and fast-
er than you,"' said Fahrer.
"We say, 'in your dreams
you did."

the United States gov-
ernment. At a St. Bal-
drick's event, something
amazing happens. People
who normally shy away
from the very thought
of childhood cancer find
themselves compelled
to support this cause af-
ter looking into the face
of these brave children
who are beaming as their
friends and family mem-
bers proudly display their
newly shorn heads. Vo-
lunteers and donors see
it can be fun to support a
serious cause.
This is the seventh year
that the event has hap-
pened at Olympic Heights,
which was brought not
only to the school but to
Palm Beach County se-
ven years ago by Olym-
pic Heights own Renee
Olympic Heights raised
more than $41,000 in
this year's event, with 76
brave students and staff
members stepping up to
the plate to raise money
for children's cancer.
Over the course of the
seven years, Olympic
Heights has raised more
than a quarter of a million
dollars to helping find a
cure for childhood cancer.
"St. Baldrick's touches
me a lot" said Brianna
Silva, sophomore and
treasurer of the Student
Government Association,
"It makes me think about
how I complain about the
smallest things and how I
should stop and appreci-
ate all that I have around
me because some people
aren't as lucky."
Silva isn't alone in her


thinking. Many other
students, when they talk
about what St. Baldrick's
is to them, always end up
with those same words
about how they should
appreciate what they
have more because some
people aren't as lucky.
Of all the years I have
been a part of St. Bal-
drick's, I must go out on
a limb here and say that
this year was by far the
best year ever. Yes, even
better than when I was at-
tending Olympic Heights.
There was something dif-
ferent about this year that
just seemed as if the en-
tire student body was
unified, I've never seen
the gym so full before
in my time there. The
sea of green gave me
goose bumps. Only one
word can describe what
St. Baldrick's this year
at Olympic Heights felt
like: "Phenomenal," said
Brianna Silva.

All about happy...
Neiman Marcus' spring fashion show dazzled an appreciative audience of almost 500 styl-
ish ladies at the annual gala luncheon for the Greater Boca Raton Cancer Chapter of The
Pap Corps. The theme of this spring season is "All about happy," according to Lauren
Johnson, PR director of the department store.
Johnson coordinated the show to highlight the hottest trends of the season beginning with
a kaleidoscope of color. A vibrant mix of shades flowed down the catwalk with blends of
purples, blues, and fuchsias from designers such as Cavalli, Escada, Pucci, Fendi and more.
After that cavalcade, the show shifted into neutral with a selection of earth tones. I loved
the body-hugging Lanvin dress with exposed zipper and the stunning St. John beige and
white tweed jacket.
Then the shade of the season took center stage...coral! Feminine, versatile and universally
flattering. the hue graced designs by Chanel, Akris, Fendi and more.
One of the favorite fashion sections was the polka dots, prints, and metallics, which brought
out an exciting assortment of looks.
Ending the show, the glamorous evening wear had the crowd in continuous applause. Espe-
cially stunning was the ever sublime Valentino showing a blush ruffle gown.
Stunning! All looks were made even more dazzling with jewels by Andreoli!
At the end of the show smiling faces filled the audience! Happy indeed! And congrats to the
organizers who raised over $175,000 for cancer research!

Two contemplative, downbeat

films hit theaters

It was the opposite ot a slam-
bang action weekend in new
film releases a few days ago,
with two contemplative, dare
we say downbeat? foreign
The oddly-spelled "Biutiful"
is generating the most inter-
est because it has an Oscar
nomination as Best Foreign
Film (Spain) and its star Ja-
vier Bardem is a Best Actor
There is no question Bar-
dem does a masterful job as
Uxbal, a Barcelona hustler
involved in shady dealings,
mostly involving crooked
cops and illegal immigrants.
On the other hand Uxbal is
a loving father to two young
children, whom he is raising
as a single parent because of
their mother's mental illness
and utter irresponsibility.
His wife Marimba (Mari-
cel Avarez) has sunk so low
she does tricks as a prostitute
when she is not sleeping with
Uxbal's no-count brother.
If this weren't grim enough,
Uxbal is trying to carry on
his chaotic ordinary life with
the knowledge he has termi-
nal cancer and only a couple
of months left to live.
Yes, Mexican writer-director
Alejandro Guillermo Inarritu

has really heaped the misery
on his leading character, yet
Bardem's Uxbal soldiers on
with stoicism and generos-
ity, even as he is entering the
terminal stages of illness.
So you see the title, which
is Uxbal's young son's mis-
spelling on a crayon draw-
ing, is anything but "Beauti-
ful." The paradox, if you stick
with the story through its two-
and-a-half-hour length, is that
this is a tale of redemption. It
is a remarkable performance
by Bardem, surely one of
the best actors in the world

"Another Year" unexciting
but reassuring
"Another Year" is an unex-
citing title for an unexciting
film by British director Mike

Leigh. That is meant in a
good way, because "Ano-
ther Year" is a film of great
subtlety, anchored by two
fine character actors.
Tom (Jim Broadbent) and
Gerri (Ruth Sheen) are a
long-married couple still in
love in the autumn of their
years (the film is divided
into the four seasons).
By contrast everyone around
them is not happy at all.
Gerri's best friend Janet
(Imelda Staunton) is almost
comatose from depression.
Tom's old friend Ken (Pe-
ter Wight) is pretty much a
lush with other bad habits.
Then there's Mary (Lesley
Manville) who also drinks
too much and struggles with
Tom and Gerri, so different
from the cartoon characters,
are almost apologetic for
being so dar content, with
fulfilling jobs, useful hob-
bies, and a good relationship
with their grown son (Oliver
Maltman). In short, the chal-
lenges of life do not get Tom
and Gerri down.
For that "Another Year" is a
lovely, uplifting and gently
entertaining film.

Laughter, Jay Leno style; wit at

the speed of light

They say laughter is
the best medicine. And
I couldn't agree more.
An apple a day is so
passe (and the pestici-
des could kill you) and
exercise just takes up
too much time.
So when Lewis Black
canceled his concert
date at Hard Rock Live
at the Seminole Hard
Rock Hotel & Casino,
Jay Leno stepped in at
the last minute. So li-
ke any laughter junkie
(and Jay Leno fan) I
jumped at the chance to
transcend the mundane
and giggle until my sides
And I was not disappointed.
"I heard that Cosmopolitan
Magazine is telling women
that they should drop their
panties on the dinner table
on a date. If you're mar-
ried, that won't work. The
man will just yell, 'That's
my steak, don't put your
rolled up underpants on my
That's the great thing about
Jay Leno; he is part comedi-
an and part actor. His jokes
make it seem like we're all
living in a supersized world
boiled down to its lowest
common dominator. He
paces the floor just blurt-
ing out funny anecdotes and
telling stories as if he had
a tape recorder firmly im-
planted in his brain. And, if
you watch the Tonight Show
you know that Leno's wit
travels at the speed of light.
He has the ability to disarm
the serious and make mere

mortals laugh until our sto-
ries (or pain) fades into the
Dressed in a dark blue suit
with striped tie, Leno looked
every bit the part of the Wall
Street banker. But unlike
the heavy hitting business
stiff Leno takes the every-
day foibles of the modem
man (or woman) and makes
them seem pretty hysterical.
"When they asked Charlie
Sheen about the night he
was found in the Plaza Ho-
tel with a naked hooker, he
said it was just a bad night.
Let me tell you, if the aver-
age man was in a suite in the
Plaza Hotel with a naked
girl, he would say it was a
great night."
If you ask me, any night
with Jay Leno is a great
night. He's the reason I
stay up until the last stray
cat has found dessert and
the world has sealed its last
shutter. Sure I would love to
subscribe to the notion that
"early to bed, early to rise

makes a man (or wom-
an) healthy, wealthy and
wise," but I can't seem
to end a day without a
dose of Leno. Who else
is going to make me
laugh - the check-out
girl at Publix?
"They say obesity may
be caused by a virus.
Have you seen anyone
in Africa with the obe-
sity virus? So, what are
you going to do, call in
fat? Boss, I'm not coming
in today. I'm staying home
to eat M&M's. I caught
the obesity virus, some-
one in the office sneezed
on me.
If you know Leno then
you know about his love-
hate relationship with cats.
"When you're dating a wo-
man with a cat she will give
you the cat speech. 'Cats
are very independent. They
think for themselves, they
eat when they want, sleep
when they want, and disap-
pear for days at a time and
then show up as if noth-
ing happened. Everything
women hate about men they
love in a cat.'"
Cat chatting aside, seeing
Jay Leno is about as good
as it gets if you want to
stimulate your endorphins
(and lighten your load of re-
ality). And, in a world torn
apart by inane innuendos
and critical banter, it's good
to see someone who can up-
lift our spirits and tickle our
funny bones - if just for one
Leno will be appearing
in Boca February 26th at
The Concours d'Elegance
Grand Gala at the Boca Ra-
ton Resort.

Raining Cats and Dogs Saves the Day


By: Gabriela Heizer

Can you imagine what it
must feel like, if you were
an animal, to be beaten and
abused by your owner?
Unfortunately this is very
common in America. Over
6 million cats and dogs are
abused each year. Luckily
Raining Cats and Dogs Inc
has saved a lot of these cats
and dogs from their abuse
owners. They have been
serving all of South Florida
since 2001. Raining Cats
and Dogs Inc. is a no-kill,
non-profit organization.

A Majority of their animals
were rescued only days be-
fore euthanasia at animal
control. Some were found
as strays or by cars nearly
hitting them. One of their
featured pets, Holly and
Brooke, arrived at a shelter
in Port St. Lucie starving,
bloody, and hairless. The
shelter was full so Raining
Cats and Dogs Inc. took
them in. They believe that
both Holly and Brook were
abused by their previous
male owner because they
are very shy towards males
they've never meet.
To make sure the animals
are never abused again they
visit your home to make
it easier for the animals.

They adopt their dogs at
PetsMART on Glades and
441 in Boca Raton. Rain-
ing Cats and Dogs repre-
sentatives are there every
Saturday and Sunday from
12-4 pm. They also accept

When starting your own

business, old advice is still good advice

While clearing out some
papers that I have accumu-
lated over the years, I came
across notes from a lecture
I gave at Lynn University
as one of the guest speakers
in Dr. Ralph Norcio's class.
My topic was, "Going
into Business." Although
the presentation was given
years ago, the information
remains true. The formula
for a successful business
remains the same. Howe-
ver, keeping up with the
changes in the virtual mar-
ket, social media and other
technical advances is an es-
sential add-on for business
to succeed today.
Because of the high unem-
ployment situation, many
people are going into their
own business. This is a mo-
numental step and there are
many roadblocks along the
way. Of great importance
is having had experience
working in that field as an
employee. Before you can
command the ship, you
must have the experience of
being one of the crew. I say
this because the work situa-
tion enables you to observe
what motivates your work
force. Getting along with
people is one of the keys
to success. There is a link
between successful people
and their work ethic, per-

sonal characteristics and
values. Some of the follo-
wing are characteristics of
successful entrepreneurs:
Integrity - "Truth will out!"
In Shakespeare's, "The
Merchant of Venice,"
1596, these words rang
out. Business is based on
relationships and success-
ful relationships are based
on telling it as it is. That is
why I include integrity in
the mix. Having this qua-
lity will set you apart. The
advantage is that you will
gain respect from those
you encounter and com-
munication will be readily
Perseverance - Never giving
up, staying the course is one
of the characteristics of the
achiever. Give me the per-
son who believes in what
they are doing and, regard-
less of the obstacles, will
stay focused on their goals
and I will show you a suc-
cessful person. That is why
perseverance gets my vote
as a major characteristic.
Empathy - Regardless of
the business or service you
are interested in, you are in
the business of "people."
Understanding the people,
working with them is one
of the key elements to run-
ning a successful business.
People with a high degree

of empathy understand the
other person's situation and
are able to find a solution.
The ability to listen and
feel the situation as your
own enables you to render
a fair decision and proper
Ego Drive - People with a
strong ego drive strive to be
winners and are focused on
a successful outcome. They
do not become pessimistic
in a negative situation but
work harder to achieve suc-
cess to satisfy their goals.
They don't look for excuses
nor put the blame on others
but work harder to achieve
the success they need to sa-
tisfy their inner self.
Another vital prerequisite
before going into your own
business is to ask yourself
the following basic ques-
Does a need or want exist
or can I create that need or
What makes my idea
Who is my competition?
Do I have to have a busi-
ness plan?
How much capital will I
What is my time frame?
If you think that you met
all the requirements; then
go for it!
Good Luck!

visors and teachers. Many
of these consultants arrive
with the latest business
ideas and fads. Fads come
and go, however, being re-
placed by other novel and
often short-lived strategies.
Left in their wake are con-
fusion and questionable
business practices that are
not rooted in time-tested
Wes Cantrell, former CEO
over a $14 billion corpo-
ration that manufactured
copying machines sold
worldwide, had many op-
portunities to utilize some
of these new and innova-
tive ideas. But he chose to
take a very different path.
Speaking at a recent gath-
ering of business and pro-
fessional people, Cantrell
made a statement some of
his listeners might have
found surprising - that his
management style and prin-
ciples he followed were
based on and rooted in the
Ten Commandments.
Rather than following busi-
ness practices that seem-
ingly change with the wind,
he was able to guide his or-
ganization consistently by
using commands that have
survived thousands of years
and countless challenges.
As Psalm 119:98-99 teach-
es, "Your commands make
me wiser than my enemies,
for they are ever with me. I
have more insight than all
my teachers for I meditate

on your statutes."
The Ten Commandments
are presented in two places
in the Bible's Old Testa-
ment - Exodus 20:1-17
and Deuteronomy 5:6-21.
The first three command-
ments deal with mankind's
relationship with God; the
remaining seven offer prin-
ciples that can be applied
to any business setting.
For instance, the fourth
commandment directs us
to observe a Sabbath day.
Practically speaking, it re-
minds us if we work day
and night, not pausing for
rest and refreshment, we
will break down mentally
and physically.
Hardly any of us would
find fault with many of
the Ten Commandments.
The most controversial, of
course, are those requir-
ing worship and obedience
to God alone. For athe-
ists and agnostics, that is a
great stumbling block. But
in the Scriptures, God ex-
plains a practical motiva-
tion for obeying His rules:
"Be careful to follow every
command I am giving you
today, so that you may live
and increase and may enter
and possess the land that
the Lord promised on oath
to your forefathers" (Deu-
teronomy 8:1).
What if a consultant like
those cited above were to
arrive at your office and
declare with great convic-
tion, "If you follow what I
tell you, your business will
grow and prosper, and you
will experience more suc-

cess than you ever could
imagine." Would you not
at least pause to consider
his recommendations and
see how they could fit with
your company's mission
and culture?
The problem, of course, is
obvious. Next week, next
month or next year some-
one else will come along
and make similar boasts,
claiming his or her propos-
al amounts to the greatest
thing since the invention
of the wheel. Yes, fads and
gimmicks come and go - in
the business world as well
as other realms of society.
Unlike those, however, the
Ten Commandments have
been around for thousands
of years and remain rock
solid as a consistent, reli-
able guide for conduct,
both personal and profes-
Leading an organization re-
quires wisdom. If you want
to create a strong advantage
over your competition, you
would be wise to consider
Wes Cantrell's advice to
study and apply God's
Word, the Bible, to your
business as well as your
personal life. And the Ten
Commandments would be
a good place to start.
Until next week!

Divorce can impact insurance

coverage in a variety of ways

Question: My husband and
I are going ;h,, 'ugh the di-
vorce process, and have
been for about six months.
We have a mediation com-
ing up. To prepare, I sat
down with a friend of mine
to go ;h, ,,'gh her divorce
Last night, my friend and I
were discussing insurance
issues. I have been married
for more than 20 years, and
we are both 45 years old,
andingoodhealth. We have
two kids, one in college, one
a sophomore at Pine Crest.
I have not worked during
the marriage. My husband
makes good money. We ha-
ve always had health insu-
rance and life insurance,
;h, .,,gh his employment
with a public company.
Can you tell me what kind
of insurance protection I
would get if the case went
to court? Would the judge
have to give the children
and me the same health
insurance we have now?
Would he give me life insur-
ance to pay for alimony and
child support, in the case
of my husband' premature

Answer: Let's discuss the
life insurance first. Florida
appellate court decisions
have made it much harder
for a trial court to award
life insurance as security
for alimony or child support
in the last few years. To be

sustained on appeal an award
of life insurance must meet
three criteria:
1. There must be "special
circumstances" requiring the
insurance. That seems to
mean that there has to be
some special risk to your
husband's health, or, per-
haps, some special condi-
tion that would prohibit you
from ever earning your own
support, or being able to
support your minor child.
2. The trial court must find
that the insurance is af-
fordable, after making the
distribution of assets, and
deducting the cost of the
alimony and child support
from your husband's earn-
ings. Non-marital assets of
both parties must be consid-
3. The court must make spe-
cific findings as to whether
all of the proceeds of exist-
ing insurance are necessary
to secure the support, or the
amount of a new policy, and
how the insurance is to be
distributed; directly and all
at once , or through a trus-
tee, in monthly payments.
That being said, it is quite
common to be able to nego-
tiate life insurance coverage
during mediation, especial-
ly if you and your husband
already have life insurance.
The life insurance to secure
alimony would be based
upon the amount of alimo-
ny that you receive and your
life expectancy, or, perhaps

the number of years left be-
fore your husband is of re-
tirement age, or the number
of years left on your term
insurance policy already in
That insurance requirement
would be eliminated if you
lost your alimony as the re-
sult of a re-marriage, or la-
ter modification of alimony.
Insurance to secure child
support would be calculated
based upon the current child
support, and incorporate a
declining balance to take
into consideration your mi-
nor child's age and balance
You have also asked about
health insurance coverage.
The court will probably
require your husband to
continue to supply health
insurance for your minor
child, and, perhaps, for your
children while they are in
college or to the age now
provided in the new health
care law.
Federal law does not al-
low you to continue on
your husband's group health
plan indefinitely, but creates,
through a process referred to
as COBRA, the ability to
maintain your present co-
verage at an expense close to
what your husband's com-
pany is paying to cover you.
You can choose to go with
that plan or purchase your
own. The cost of your insu-
rance will be considered as
one of your needs by co-
vered alimony.

South Florida's economy to improve via

By Sam Tett

BOCA RATON - The local
economy is on the rise ac-
cording to The Palm Beach
County Convention and
Visitors Bureau (CVB), who
presented their 2011 market-
ing plan at the Boca Raton
Resort and Club on Monday
Troy McLellan, President
and CEO of the Greater
Boca Raton Chamber of
Commerce, outlined some of
Palm Beach County's recent
economic successes: "South
County represents over
5,500 [hotel] rooms, which
is 34% of the total number of
rooms in all of Palm Beach
County...we have contrib-
uted greatly to the bed tax in
this county, and South Coun-
ty led the state of Florida in
the best occupancy recovery
for 2011."
Jorge Pesquera, President
and CEO of the CVB, said:
"We believe in the magic of
Boca Raton, we believe in the

tourism in 2011
vibrancy of Delray Beach...
South county matters, be-
cause you have a lot to offer
to those families huddled in
their living rooms, wonder-
ing where they are going
to go next summer, or next
season." Getting these va-
cationers to choose the Palm
Beaches, claims Pesquera, is
the key to economic recov-
ery in Florida.
This initiative has already
yielded noticeable results:
Palm Beach County has ex-
perienced a nearly 10% in-
crease in year-to-date (YTD)
occupancy compared to last
year. In addition, the Palm
Beaches placed number one
in growth among all Florida
destinations, and the county
has seen nine consecutive
months of improved bed tax.
Palm Beach County has also
had the strongest job growth
of any of Florida's 22 metro
areas, adding 6,900 jobs be-
tween December 2009 and
December 2010 - more than
twice the state's growth rate.

"Palm Beach county leads
the state in new jobs" said
Pesquera. "Visitors mean
jobs, and less taxes. For ev-
ery 85 visitors, there is a
new job." When those are
first-time visitors, added
Pesquera, just 45 will create
a new job.
Looking ahead, "business
leaders from the local cham-
bers of commerce will have
the opportunity to align their
efforts with the CVB and
play an even more integral
role in promoting this area,
said McLellan.
Mr. Pesquera also called the
Everglades "an under-uti-
lized opportunity, particular-
ly for the European market,"
so we can expect to see more
emphasis laid upon that nat-
ural resource in the coming

The Keno Brothers to celebrate launch of new

furniture line in Boca Raton

By Donovan Ortega

The Keno brothers will be
dropping into Boca Ra-
ton on February l1th to
launch their new furniture
line. They will be at Robb
and Stucky in Mizner Park
at 2 pm. Leigh and Leslie
Keno are best known as the
enthusiastic, blonde twins
from PBS's Emmy nomi-
nated program, Antiques
Roadshow. They are among
the country's foremost ex-
perts on antiques, and they
have combined their 60
years of collective expertise
to create The Keno Bros.TM
collection, a new line of
handcrafted classically
modem furniture by Theo-

dore Alexander. The furni-
ture line is comprised of ap-
proximately 100 individual
pieces ranging in style from
18th century classics to
20th century modem adap-
tations. The line has Leigh
and Leslie Keno's distinct
style; one bor out of years
in an antiques business in
which they have honed and
streamlined their vision of

This is the first time the
brothers have worked to-
gether on a project. Leigh
Keno currently owns and
operates Keno Auctions
in New York City, while
Leslie Keno is Senior Vice
President and Senior Spe-
cialist of American Furni-
ture and Decorative Arts
at Sotheby's in New York.
Even though their respec-
tive careers have been in the
same field, it might seem
contentious to combine two
giants and expect them to
work together peacefully.
But, as the Keno brothers
fondly recall, their visions
often aligned.

One brother's opinion would simply reinforce the hunch of the other.
"This is our passion," said Leslie in an interview with the Boca Raton Tribune. "We just
appreciate great, beautiful objects. We see furniture as sculpture. It's not decoration to us.
We want our pieces to be the heirlooms of tomorrow."
Leigh agreed.
"Yep," he said.

Three Ways the HEAT miss Udonis Haslem

By: Matt Pineda

Udonis Haslem suffered
an injury to his foot on
November 20th in a game
against the Memphis Griz-
zlies. He tore ligaments
and is listed as out until
late March or early April
as the HEAT hopes he can
regain form in time for the
playoffs. Miami's need for
Haslem was overshadowed
by their success in Decem-
ber, but as time rolls on, it
becomes clear the ways
they miss him, and the ben-
efit they will receive when
Haslem is ready to play
again. With that said, here
are three ways the HEAT
miss the services of Udonis
Haslem and what to look
for when he returns.
Rebounding - When he went
out, Udonis was leading the
team in rebounding at 8.2 per
game. Everyone's concern
was the HEAT are not big
enough to get it done and
rebounds were the concern.
Udonis has been a staple
on the boards his entire ca-
reer, and it's something he
takes pride in. Although the
HEAT rank 8th in the NBA
in rebounding, Haslem's
presence on the boards can
free up LeBron and Wade
to take less time to clean-
ing up rebounds and more
time getting out into tran-
sition. Bosh has turned up
his rebounds tremendously
since UD went out, as well
as Wade. When Udonis is

back and able to contribute
on the boards next to Bosh
and Joel, the HEAT should
have enough to make their
rebounding a clear advan-
tage on the defense and of-
fensive side of the court.
Charges - The HEAT track
and record charges taken
on defense. They place a
high importance on this be-
cause of the way their de-
fensive system is designed
to provide help defense
everywhere on the court.
Udonis has led the team
in charges taken for years,
and was earlier this season
before his injury. Now, it is
James Jones. When Udo-
nis returns, his ability to
take the charge and close
out on defense will pro-
vide the HEAT with extra
defensive pressure. Udonis
is a superb defender. He is
many times over-matched,
but he is smart and is will-
ing to sacrifice his body for
the team. This creates turn-
overs for the opponent and
extra possessions for the
HEAT to control the game.
Leadership - Haslem is
the co-captain of the HEAT
alongside Dwyane Wade.
He has been described as
the heart and soul of the
Miami HEAT. He embod-
ies what us fans want to
see in a player - he is hard
working, and gives every-
thing that he has until the
finish. His leadership will
be appreciated when he re-
turns. He is able and will-

ing to voice his opinion and
anchor the defense. This is
his style of leadership. He
leads by example. Of the
13 games he played this
season, he had 6 double
figure rebounding games
off the bench. He leads by
example and many times,
he will be the spark off the
bench and continued effort
the HEAT need to close out
Udonis is already missed
in so many ways. But it
is also encouraging to see
the HEAT succeed so well
without Haslem in the line-
up. It shows that once he
does come back he will be
able to offer the small piec-
es that the team needs him
to. Wade, James and Bosh
all gave up money to make
room for Udonis Haslem
to continue to be a part of
this team. It's unfortunate
that he got hurt, but rest as-
sured that when he returns
he will be welcomed with
open arms to be a core part
of this team.

Is There Any Cure For Golf

Pufting Problems?

By: Edwin Shackleford

It is perhaps the supreme
irony in golf that the sim-
plest shot in the book
seems to cause the biggest
problem to the largest num-
ber of golfers.
Let's face it, the putt is the
only golf shot that it is re-
ally possible to execute
flawlessly without any tu-
ition at all. We all start off
doing this as kids. Some
of us are even superb at it
at this young age. It is this
shot that is often the spur
that leads to a lifelong ad-
diction to this wonderful
game of golf.
What then, goes wrong?
How can this easiest of golf
shots become the absolute
bane of an adult golfer's
life? Sorry to say, there is
no easy answer. Experts
are just as baffled as inex-
perienced amateurs over
this one. The saying 'it's all
in the mind' was probably
never more true than in this
golfing case.
Several years ago, an
American company de-
veloped a golf putting ma-
chine. They carried out
tests in optimum putting
conditions and were gob-
smacked to discover that
their pride and joy couldn't
hole every putt. They took
that machine apart and
tweaked every element of
it until they were certain
that it was in perfect work-
ing order. And, guess what?
It still failed to hole some
putts. If this doesn't go to
prove that there is at least

an element of 'black art'
about golf putting, then
nothing will.
The best lesson to take from
the above is that you really
never are going to achieve
putting perfection. If a ma-
chine in perfect working
under operating under per-
fect putting conditions fails
to hole every golf putt, then
a human being with all his
or her imperfections never
So, the first rule is, stop
giving yourself such a hard
time whenever you miss
a few putts. It happens to
even top professional golf-
ers. In fact, any problem
you have with putting is
much more likely to be psy-
chological than physical,
so the very last thing you
should be doing is getting
down on yourself mentally;
this can only make matters
Is there anything you can
do if you really do have
severe, regular putting
problems? Well, apart from
working on the mental side
of things to inculcate strong
belief that you really can
putt (try some self-hypnosis
tapes etc.) the best advice is
to see if a change of putter
will do the trick. Take your
lead from the profession-
als. So many professional
golfers who've suffered
terribly from the yipss' on
the putting green, such as
Bernhard Langer, found
their salvation in the broom
handle putter - maybe you
should give one a try.
