Safety tip from

Boca Raton Police


Boca Raton police safety tip
0: I have an older home with awning windows. What is
the best way to secure them?
A: Unfortunately, there is no best way to secure awning
windows other than to ensure the windows are in good
repair and the handle is turned firmly closed. Ideally, the
windows should be replaced with a single hung window
incorporating security film or laminated glass and auxil-
iary locks.

Obituary


Funeral Friday for Team

Boca soccer star who

died after car crash

BOCA RATON - A funeral for Melissa Bergstein, 18, of
West Delray Beach, a high school soccer star and man-
ager of the wrestling team at American Heritage School,
will be held at 2 p.m. at the Spanish River Christian
Church, 2400 Yamato Road, Boca Raton.
Ms. Bergstein died Monday afternoon at Delray Medical
Center of injuries suffered in a car crash Sunday morn-
ing.
In addition to playing sports at American Heritage, she
was a member of Team Boca, a soccer association in
Boca Raton, and had been playing with that group since
the age of 9.
American Heritage School Headmaster Robert Stone
said Transforming Kids, a nonprofit foundation created
by a parent of an American Heritage student, will also
administer a new scholarship in Bergstein's name.
Her parents will determine the criteria for awarding the
scholarship, Stone said.
Also, the school's National Honor Society, of which
Bergstein was a member, is planning to create a scholar-
ship for a senior who is a scholar athlete.
Donations may be sent to the Melissa Bergstein Schol-
arship, American Heritage School, 6200 Linton Blvd.,
Delray Beach, FL 33484.

"I am glad my unused campaign funds can be given
V Y to these reputable charities to support their positive ef-
forts," said Hager. "I specifically chose these various
charities because of the tremendous work they do for the community-at-large, and I am
confident the funds will be put to good use."
Hager was elected to his first term in the Florida State House of Representatives last No-
vember and represents District 87, which includes coastal portions of southern Palm Beach

City of Boca Raton donates documents

to Boca Raton Historical Society


BOCA RATON - The city of
Boca Raton recently trans-
ferred a significant archive
of historic maps and pho-
tographs to the Boca Raton
Historical Society to ensure
their safekeeping and preser-
vation. These maps and pho-
tographs have been scanned
and added to the city's data-
base.
The actual documents, which
include original "linens" with
hand drawn ink maps, will be
kept under archival storage
conditions by trained profes-
sional staff at the Historical
Society's museum in Town
Hall. The "linens" would
have been used as a master
to produce "blueprint" cop-
ies; today, modem techno-
logy has eliminated their use.
In addition to the valuable
maps, some with a market
value of as much as $1,000
each, the city has provided
a copy of the scans for the

Historical Society's use. The
scans themselves are of great
value as city staff has access
to high quality large format
scanners; the BRHS would
otherwise have to pay a large
sum to scan these oversized
artifacts.
Some of the items include

wing the Spanish River Land

Boca Raton Resort & Club), a

the footprint of every struc-
ture in the then-town limits
(not many), and miscella-
neous high quality aerial i-
mages.
The transfer of this collec-
tion was made possible by
Historical Society member
and long time city employee
Dick Randall, former map-
ping and design administra-
tor for Planning and Zoning.
He recommended the scan-
ning and transfer of this col-
lection to eliminate the need
for the constant handling
of the fragile original items
and to assure their long term
preservation.
"These maps document the
amazing growth of our com-
munity and will be a signifi-
cant resource for individual
researchers and scholars
in the years to come," said
Dick.
Mayor Susan Whelchel
echoed these sentiments,
"They belong at the His-
torical Society; what better
place for them?"

Commission postpones action on

resolution urging ban on high-capacity


WEST PALM BEACH -
The Palm Beach County
Commission postponed to
March 1 the proposed adop-
tion of a resolution urging
the Florida Legislature to
enact a ban on large-ca-
pacity ammunition-feeding
devices. The postponement
will give the board time to
hear comments from She-
riff Ric Bradshaw and other
law enforcement officials.
Also at the February 15
meeting, the board took the
following action:
Parks & Recreation - ap-
proved a series of code
amendments pertaining to
the management of county-
owned park property and
facilities.
Guardrails - adopted a re-
solution demanding the
FDOT expedite installation
of guardrails along sections
of State Road 80 west of
20-Mile Bend.


yun magazines
Prescription drugs - agreed
to draft a letter to Gov. Rick
Scott urging him not to cut
funding for the prescription
drug monitoring program
from the state budget.
Legislative program - ap-
proved the 2012 federal
legislative program, inclu-
ding priority appropria-
tions and legislative issues,
general appropriations and
general issues to monitor
during the upcoming con-
gressional session.
Vehicles for hire - adopted
a resolution encouraging
state lawmakers to pass
legislation allowing local
governments to conduct a
national background check
on commercial vehicle-for-
hire drivers.
Economic Development -
approved a local economic
development incentive in
the amount of $136,400,
to be matched by the city


of Palm Beach Gardens,
for Chromalloy Gas Tur-
bine, LLC. The company
provides advanced repairs,
FAA-approved replacement
parts and maintenance, and
repair and overhaul of gas
turbines. Chromalloy is
considering a local office in
Palm Beach Gardens and
will create 52 jobs with an
average annual salary of
$88,000 by the end of 2013.
Living wage - approved on
preliminary reading and to
advertise for public hearing
on March 15 an amend-
ment to the county's living
wage ordinance that would
maintain the current living
wage hourly rate through
September 30, 2013.
Palm Tran - approved a
two-part RFP (request for
proposals) process for the
operation of Palm Tran's
paratransit service.


BOCA RATON - For at
least the third time, the
CSX Railroad crossing on
Palmetto Park Road is in
need of repair.
Commissioner Steven
Abrams has announced that


the county will be mak-
ing handling the much-
needed roadway fix at
the crossing located just
west of 1-95.
He said the east and
west rails are not at the
same level and past re-
pairs only lasted a short
period of time. The
current plan includes a
long-term solution of
reconstructing the railroad
tracks so that they are all at
the same level, creating a
smoother crossing.
"A lot of drivers have been
complaining, so it's impor-
tant we get this fixed once


and for all," said Abrams.
A preliminary engineering
agreement to facilitate the
specifications was recently
adopted by the Board of
County Commissioners.
The project is estimated
to cost some $51,000 and
since the county owns the
licensing agreement for
this crossing, they will be
responsible for the repair
costs.
CSX will commence de-
signing and scheduling of
the project.

EDITORIAL
By Dale King


He weighs 10 pounds - and he's 'The Boss'


My wife and I both agree on
who's the boss in our house.
It's not her. It's not me. It's
our dog.
Yes, little Peanut doesn't
just have the run of the
house, he RUNS the house.
He tells us when he wants
to eat, when he wants to go
out, when he wants to come
back in and when it's time
to go to bed.
For a small dog, he seems to
have a massive brain capac-
ity. Sure, he shows us what
he wants with body lan-
guage, but he has an incre-
dible ability to understand
words. Even sentences.
I have to admit that he gets
away with a lot of things
because he is the most
handsome (he is, after all,
a boy) little doggie on the
face of the Earth. Which
was not always true. When
we bought him in Septem-
ber of 2006 at the age of
four months, he had to be
the ugliest little creature on
four legs.
My wife said she found
him in the cage in the back
of a pet store, cringing in
the comer while other dogs
yelped, "Pick me, pick


f--w


me!" She took him out of
the cage and walked over
to me. The first thing he
did was lick my face, as he
had done moments before
to my wife. So, despite his
scrawny neck, a big nose
and gnarly teeth, we bought
him. (As I recall, he was ac-
tually on sale.)
His papers say he is a pure-
bred apricot poodle, with
lineage tracing to Georgia
(there are references to his
forebears having names like
"Apricot" and "Peach.") I
think he is largely a poodle,
but has other strains - Mal-
tese or Lab. He was an ex-
act match to a Maltepoo we
met a year ago at the dog
park in Delray Beach.


Doesn't matter. We love
him anyway. And we were
blessed the first time he
went to the groomer. After a
bath and clipping, he came
out looking beautiful. (The
story of the Ugly Duck-
ling came to mind) - unlike
the dog I had left off that
morning. When I brought
him home, my wife said,
"Where's our dog?" I said,
"This is him."
As he matured, his intelli-
gence grew - and so did his
need to be with his "mom-
my and daddy." And our
neighbors, Fran and Bob,
who doggie-sit for the baby
when we're not around, gi-
ve him the same level of
love that we do - and we all


get it back in return, with
kisses, hugs and welco-
ming barks.
Peanut gets excited like no
other dog. He comes run-
ning to greet us and jumps
on us to be held. If my wife
and I are together, he jumps
back and forth, back and
forth from one to the other.
He just gets so dam happy
that it takes several minutes
for him to calm down.
And the opposite is also
true. When we leave the
house, he mopes. He has a
dour face like no other dog
can match. The only thing
that helps is to say, "Wanna
go see Fran and Bob?" and
he springs up with joy.
I could go on with a litany
of stories about his playful-
ness, his capabilities as a
watchdog, his appetite for
food of all sorts (he's the
first to the table for dinner)
and his athletic endeavors -
he can leap onto a tall bed
in a single bound - but I
think you get the picture.
So if anyone asks who's
boss in the house, I just
point to Peanut and say,
"He is."

It is with much pride that
we announce that Alfred
"Al" Zucaro Jr., one of
South Florida's most cap-
tivating voices on interna-
tional trade and commerce,
will be writing a monthly
column in the Boca Raton
Tribune. It starts this week.
Founder and chairman of
the World Trade Center
Palm Beach in 1999, Zuca-
ro was named one of the
101 most influential peo-
ple in International Trade
and Commerce by South
Florida CEO magazine two
years in a row.
He is also well-known
throughout the community.
His wife is famed commu-
nity activist Yvonne Boice
Zucaro.
Since 1986, Al Zucaro has
practiced immigration and
nationality law. But his lea-
dership skills and expertise
extend well beyond the
courtroom. From March 1995
through November 2002,
he was elected to the West
Palm Beach City Commis-
sion. During this period, he
helped shape the identity of
West Palm Beach and Palm
Beach County as an interna-
tional business destination.
He was a member of the
Tourist Development Coun-
cil (2000 -2001) and the
Economic Council of Palm
Beach County (2001 to
2005), and has also been in-
strumental in raising the ar-
ea's profile in global affairs.
A tireless advocate of global


commerce, he has organized
trade delegations to a num-
ber of different countries
including Argentina, Brazil,
Italy and Mexico. He has
met with Scripps Research
Institute officials and World

Speaking of Al Zucaro, he

She has accepted," Al said

Pellerano said that the per-

POSITIVE LIVING
By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.


Live Each New Day With Joy!


THOUGHTS FROM THE

PU PUBLISHER

Byr Douglas Heizer

N< The Tribune welcomes

Al Zucaro to our list of columnists


But there is exactly where
their excitement also ends,
even if they may tune in
to some interesting broad-
casting, and may occasion-
ally read some meaningful
piece of literature through-
out the week, and engage
in a few other random ac-
tivities.
Yet, each new day can be
lived with a sense of ex-
citement and the experi-
ence of true joy. Whether
living singly or in families,
each individual should as-
certain in advance how
carefully to plan each day,
with sufficient time for
personal growth and for
meaningful service toward
others.
It is only when one thinks
of others more than one's
self that varied opportuni-
ties will emerge to impact
one's neighbor positively,
even through relatively


simple acts of kindness.

If you truly desire to make
each new day meaningful-
ly busy and exciting, start
thinking of others and of
what you can do for them.
It may be sending a letter
or a note to cheer someone
up, offering to take an el-
derly person to an appoint-
ment, making some phone
calls to shut-ins, or those
in convalescence, being
an ever-present friend to
many.
Everybody is daily sur-
rounded with opportuni-
ties to make a valid differ-
ence in the lives of many
other persons, and ulti-
mately there is no greater
joy than to contribute to
mending lives, and provid-
ing healing to countless
who need it!

From golf to tennis
At this time every year, you
hear people saying, "Some-
thing's going around."
Well, I caught it. I don't
know if it's the flu, an al-
lergy or a virus, but it's kept
me sniffling, coughing and
feeling just plain awful this
past week. Thankfully, I'm
getting better.
I did manage to visit the Old
Course at Broken Sound last
week to shake hands with
visitors to the Allianz Golf
Tournament. There was so
much excitement - and the
weather was pretty decent.
The Boca Raton Tribune
set up a booth and distribu-
ted papers and subscription
forms during the event. And
we'll be on the road again
starting this weekend with
a booth at the International
Tennis Championships at
the Delray Tennis Center.
I'm particularly interested
in seeing if John McEnroe
really has the terrible tem-

We'll see you at center

One of the greatest curses
affecting contemporary so-
ciety, is boredom. In spite
of new technologies in-
tended to simplify life, and
gadgets which can literally
bring the entire world to us
by a touch from our finger-
tips, people still complain
about being bored.
Even youth, from the fi-
nancial upper crust of soci-
ety, often go into shoplift-
ing and committing other
serious crimes, "just for
the thrill of it" as several
of them have personally
testified.
Sadly, there are also intel-
ligent adults who do not
know what to do mean-
ingfully with their free
moments. They may fulfil
their weekly "obligations"
of earning a living, going
to their houses of worship,
and socializing with fam-
ily, friends, and neighbors.

Mitzvah Day raises $2,000 for

education in developing nations


BOCA RATON - More than 200 people came out recently
in support of the Free the Children (FTC) organization and
the B'Nai Israel annual Mitzvah Day. They helped raise
more than $2,000 to assist education in developing coun-
tries.
Most important, the kids are experiencing first hand the
success that comes with sustained, on going efforts. In a
year and a half, the middle school group Feed the Children
has raised a staggering $26,000 to adopt a village in Kenya
(which includes building a school, fresh water well, health
care clinic and a source of alternative income to women).
The fourth graders have raised more than $5,000 to build a
fresh water well in Kenya.
The recently-raised $2,000 is a start toward the students'
new goal of raising $8,500 to build a school in India.
A special thank you to Nel Bloom and the team at B'Nai Is-
rael for giving the kids the opportunity to express their pas-
sion for Free the Children, and to introduce FTC to friends
and community members who were unaware of the work
the group does around the world.
Hats off to the Edelmans, the Rubinoffs, the Sotos and all
the volunteers who made this day a reality. There is nothing
quite like David Rubinoff screaming into his megaphone
while guiding the racers with his pace car!
The race could not have been possible without the sponsors
- the Runner's Edge and Mootz's.

Temple founders start Cool to

be Kind; bring 'Beatlemania'

back to Boca


U
C


Nancy Alovis with poster


BOCA RATON - Synagogue
founders Rick and Nancy Alo-
vis endorse the idea that it's
"Cool to be Kind"
They have even created an or-
ganization by that name - Cool
to be Kind.
"We envision Cool to be Kind
as playing a vital role in ac-
knowledging teens that are
exhibiting great leadership in
our community, and providing
resources for all our teens with
our efforts to eliminate bully-
ing." said Rick Alovis, who,
with his wife, founded Temple
Beth Shira.
"We want to draw attention
to kids who are doing terrific
work, inspiring their peers to
join in." said Nancy Alovis.
"We're going to honor some
of these great kids at our con-
certs, make a donation in their
honor to the charity of their
choice, and send them back to
their school feeling acknowl-
edged".
The Alovis's plan to launch
Cool to Be Kind at two up-
coming concerts, with a por-
tion of the proceeds going to
the organization. First up is
Ultimate Beatlemania, a per-
formance, open to the public,
scheduled Saturday, March 5
at 8 p.m. at the Countess de
Hoemle Theatre at Spanish
River High School. It features
"Let It Be," the premier Bea-
tles tribute band.
Following Ultimate Beatle-
mania will be Ultimate Jersey


Boys on April 16.
"We are so excited to be pre-
senting this concert in our
hometown of Boca Raton"
said Rick Alovis, who has
seen Beatlemania on Broad-
way. "We wanted to launch
with a concert and what could
be more perfect than the Bea-
tles music?"
Tickets are priced from $35
per person, or $25 for stu-
dents, and can be purchased
by calling the box office at
561-994-6869. There are fun-
draising opportunities for all
other organizations, and group
rates as well.
Sponsors already on board in-
clude Gary Woo Asian Bistro,
Flakowitz Deli Restaurant,
and LOLA Restaurant. Also,
Bemie Marcus, founder of
Home Depot, offered advice
on Cool To Be Kind, and U.S.
Rep. Ted Deutch offered to
write a letter on congressional
stationary which will be given
to the first Cool To Be Kind
acknowledgment winners at
the Beatlemania concert.
"We sold out 800 seats at the
last show we produced, Ulti-
mate Jersey Boys, in January"
said Rick Alovis. "Tickets are
selling fast for Beatlemania,
and we're hoping to have an-
other sell out."
To order tickets or for more
information, call Rick Alo-
vis at 561-994-6869 or visit

Special pricing is available to
nonprofits.


Troops receive 7,000

Valentines from TRI-ACTS

Club, West Boca High


BOCA RATON - Troops
stationed in Afghani-
stan and Iraq re-
cently received Val-
entine's cards from
young people in Boca
Raton intended to be
personalized and returned
to the soldier's mothers,
fathers, spouses, children,
friends or others.
In all, 4,000 of these cards
were designed, printed,
folded and stuffed into en-
velopes by members of
the TRI-ACTS Computer
Club in Boca Raton. An
additional 3,000 cards were
printed, folded and stuffed
into envelopes by the West
Boca High School, thanks
to the efforts of Lisa Ann
Rader, a member the Civil
Air Patrol Boca Raton
Composite Squadron.
West Boca High Principal
Mark Stenner contributed
1,000 cards. The other
2,000 cards were printed
using donations from the
staff and students of West
Boca Raton High School
and from private donations.
Mr. Steranko of the print-
ing department turned out
3,000 cards in two days.
Colonel S. Buddy Harris
of the Civil Air Patrol, the
United States Air Force
Auxiliary, directed this pro-
gram as he has for the past
three years. Similarly Col.
Harris ships tens of thou-
sands of Christmas cards
to U.S. fighting forces all


over the globe every year.
Harris said he feels the ef-
fort stimulates the sender
and develops feelings of
love and appreciation from
the receiver. Therefore, for
Valentine's Day, he feels
this program creates deep
feelings among no fewer
than 14,000 people.
Five large cartons filled
with Valentine cards were
sent to Civil Air Patrol
Lieutenant Colonel Dewey
Painter in Jacksonville.
Col. Painter is the trans-
shipper of materials to
American troops. He and
his team have sent hundreds
of thousands of pounds of
personal items needed so
critically by fighting men
and women.

Boca Raton Making History in Fight Against Alzheimers


By Pam Triolo
On Behalf of the Alzheim-
er's Association Southeast
Chapter

Living in Florida, there's a
good chance we've all come
into contact with someone
affected by Alzheimer's.
Did you know that Florida
is one of the leading states
for documented cases of
Alzheimer's disease? But
how many know just what
exactly this disease is? Al-
zheimer's is a fatal, degen-
erative brain disease that
causes problems with mem-
ory, thinking and behavior.


It is not normal aging. It is
the most common form of
dementia, with symptoms
developing slowly at first
and gradually worsening o-
ver time. Unfortunately, the
symptoms of Alzheimer's
become severe enough to
interfere with daily life.
Fortunately, there's hope.
Just a few weeks ago, Presi-
dent Obama signed into law
the National Alzheimer's
Project Act (NAPA). This
act will help to coordinate
all national efforts toward
the disease, from research
and clinical care, to in-home
and community care pro-

grams, and create a national
plan toward overcoming
it. The Alzheimer's Asso-
ciation's Southeast Florida
Chapter did their part to help
implement one of the larg-
est legislative victories for
the disease in years. More
than 50,000 e-mails, nearly
10,000 phone calls and
more than 1,000 meetings
convinced Congress and the
White House that Alzheim-
er's and its advocates were
serious.
One common misconcep-
tion about Alzheimer's is
that it is an "old age" dis-
ease. While increasing age
is the greatest known risk
factor, up to 5% of victims
have what is known as ear-
ly-onset Alzheimer's. Take
54-year-old Lighthouse Point
resident Jay Jones for exam-
ple. He and his wife, Laura,


have been advocating for
the disease since Jay's di-
agnosis at the age of 49.
In 2009, while attending
their first Broward Memory
Walk, Jay's friends con-
vinced him to take the stage
and share his experiences.
What followed was a brave
and captivating account of
a fit, young man's struggles
with an "old age" disease.
Unfortunately, there are
many misconceptions out
there when it comes to this
disease. That's why the
Southeast Florida Chapter of
the Alzheimer's Association
is hosting '"The Alzheimer's
Project," an Emmy-award
winning HBO documentary
series February 22nd from
10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at St. An-
drew's Country Club. Maria
Shriver, a longtime advo-
cate for Alzheimer's who


just recently lost her father
to the disease, is featured.
Admission is FREE.
Another way to support
ongoing Alzheimer's re-
search and local services
is to attend "The Times of
Your Life" Cocktails, Din-
ner and Concert Under the
Stars Saturday, March 5th at
St. Andrew's Country Club
in Boca Raton. The event
will feature poolside cock-
tails, a gourmet dinner from
St. Andrew's finest Chefs,
a tribute honoring Jay and
Laura Jones and family, a
live auction and a concert
under the stars by The Fab
Four, the ultimate Beatles
cover band. Tickets are $250
and all inclusive.

ENTERTAINMENT

By Skip Sheffield


Surf's up at IMAX Theater


Cowabunga! Riding the wild
surf of Tahiti looks pretty
dam impressive on the giant
40-foot IMAX screen.
"The Ultimate Wave Ta-
hiti 3D" is no ordinary surf
film. Actually, it is not a
surf film in the convention-
al sense, but an educational
documentary on the science
of waves and the history of
the Tahitian Islands in the
South Pacific.
Directed by Canadian IMAX
specialist Stephen Low, "Ul-
timate Wave" stars Flo-
rida's most famous surfer
and one of the finest surfers
in the world, Kelly Slater.
The co-star is Tahiti's most
famous and revered water-
man, Raimana Van Basto-
laer.
Cocoa Beach native Kelly
Slater is the winningest surf-
er of all time. He won his
first ASA World Champion-
ship at age 20, the youngest
ever, and he recently won at
again at age 38- the oldest
World Champ ever.
Slater isn't just about sur-
fing. He is an ardent envi-
ronmentalist with a particu-
lar concern for the oceans
and living reefs of the
world.
The film begins with a kind
of travelogue that introduc-


.�� "
r -


,r in "L.tinate Ili'e" in 3-1)


es the 118 South Pacific Is-
lands known as Tahiti. Then
we are introduced to Slater
and his buddy Raimana Van
Bastolaer, Tahiti's most fa-
mous surfer and a kind of
spiritual brother to Slater.
The men are physical oppo-
sites. Blond (he now shaves
his balding hair), blue-eyed
Slater is wiry and trim.
Dark-haired, dark-eyed na-
tive Polynesian Bastolaer is
self-deprecatingly plump.
It takes a while for the ac-
tual surfing to begin, with
Slater on his customary
short board and Bastolaer
on a large, stand-up paddle
board (SUP).
My guess is the paddle
board was handy for the
large, bulky IMAX cam-
era which evidently was
mounted on the board for
some surfer's eye view of


_00


the incredible waves of the
Teahupo'o break off the
coast of the islands. It's not
the sheer size of the waves,
it is their beautiful shape
and symmetry, coming un-
broken across thousands of
miles in the open Pacific
to meet the barrier reefs of
Tahiti.
"Ultimate Wave" was three
years in the making, and I can
see why. There must have
been an incredible amount
of flub-ups and outtakes.
Surfing with grace is hard
enough, but to make it look
easy with a camera follow-
ing you must be harder than
any competition.
There were other movies
opening this weekend, but
for someone like me, who
loves surfing and the ocean,
there was no choice. "The
Ultimate Wave Tahiti" was
a must-see, even though
3-D doesn't quite work for
me.
Combo tickets (related Mu-
seum of Science & Discov-
ery exhibits and IMAX) are
$16 adults, $15 seniors and
$9 children 2-12. IMAX
only is $9 adults, $8 seniors
and $7 children 2-12. Call

Unicorn Children's

Foundation - helping

one child at a time
By Diane Feen I M


BOCA RATON - It was in
2005 that Michele Yellin
saw a notice in the society
section of her newspaper
about a gala for the Unicorn
Children's Foundation. Al-
though Yellin had been ac-
tive in charities for many
years, she didn't know much
about the Unicorn Chil-
dren's Foundation.
But Yellin is a quick learn-
er - and the Unicorn Chil-
dren's Foundation is a very
compelling organization. In
case you don't know about
the Unicorn Children's Foun-
dation, it is a nonprofit orga-
nization that helps children
and young adults with de-
velopmental, communica-
tion and learning disorders
lead productive and fulfill-
ing lives through education,
awareness and research ini-
tiatives.
Since this cause resonated
quite strongly with Yellin,
she began to do fundraising
for the organization. She
(and other volunteers) ran
a golf tournament to raise
money and Yellin worked
tirelessly to get local busi-
nesses to donate gifts for
live and silent auctions. They
even got the Ziegfeld Girls of
Florida to donate a substan-
tial amount of money.
It seems that Yellin and her
fellow volunteers from the
Unicorn Children's Foun-
dation are doing a great job.
They now have two mobile
units that screen children
with autism and learning
disabilities. And they con-
tinue to promote learning
and increased awareness
(with tools and resources)
to better meet the needs of
these children.

Their most ambitious goal
yet is to open a Unicorn
High School for children
with special needs. The
school will prepare these
children to transition into the
work force, go to college or
have full involvement in the
community.
To reach this auspicious
goal they are having a
Grand Gala, "An Evening
Aboard the Orient Express"
at the Mar-a- Lago Club
on March 5th. The Grand
Honorary Host will be Mr.
and Mrs. Donald Trump,
the Mistress of Ceremonies
is Lucie Amaz, Founder

Swanson. Other honorees
are Smart for Life/Underway,
Dr. Sasson, Renata Moulan,

no, Patricia Riley and Jean-
nette Stark.


There will also be a cocktail
reception for the Unicorn
Children's Foundation at
the Karen Lynne Gallery in
Plaza Real South on Febru-
ary 19 from 6 to 8 pm.
The Unicorn Children's
Foundation was founded
by Dr. Mark Rosenbloom,
after his three-year-old son
was diagnosed with a com-
munication disorder. He had
been told by professionals
that his son, who was not
yet speaking, would "grow
out of it." But he didn't.
Since its inception in 1994,
Unicorn Children's Foun-
dation's provides hope and
answers for families of chil-
dren affected by a develop-
mental, communication or
learning disorders.

BOCA RATON - Hi, I'm
Zipper, a 4-year old male
Lhasa Apso who has a fa-
vor to ask.
All I want is what every
dog wants....a human to
adore me, a warm and cozy
place to live, a few treats,
some walks, and the usual
care and upkeep. Is that too
much to ask?
I've traveled a bumpy road
to be here but I'm looking
forward, not back. I'm
housebroken and I can live
with other dogs. If you can


use a cute little lap-warmer
like me, let's meet. Shelter
dogs are the best dogs. Let
me show you!
I'm available for adoption

WHAT BUSINESS ARE YOU IN?
By Gerald Sherman


Know your business. But get the word

out, it's essential


In today's highly com-
petitive market, getting
the word out about your
product/service is essential.
However, a top priority is
putting your marketing dol-
lars where you will see the
best results. So, choosing
a public relations/advertis-
ing company is more than
just selecting a company,
it requires some aware-
ness on your end too. Kno-
wing some of the areas you
should be concerned with
and if your public rela-
tions/advertising company
is also addressing them is
important. It is imperative
for both small and large
businesses to know if their
public relations/advertising
company has a clear pic-
ture of who your audience
is. Have they defined your
audience and do you agree
with it? The campaign will
be more focused and ef-
fective if the demographics
(income level, life styles
and geographic location and
needs) are thoroughly re-
searched and utilized.
Also, the tone of the mes-
sage should be considered.
When conversing with el-
derly parents, the choice


of our words and tones
of our voice are typically
quite different than when
we chat with our friends.
With our parents, we might
speak more gently and talk
about topics involving their
health and comfort. With
our friends, we might be
excited and loud as we talk
about last night's ball game
or blockbuster movie. The
difference between the two
types of communication is
the audience; the source
of the communication has
not changed but the recipi-
ent has and that affects the
entire dynamics of the con-
versation. Just as we adjust
the way we speak and what
we say according to whom
we are talking, so does a
business adjust its commu-
nication to the target audi-
ence.
Does your public relations/
advertising company have
a firm knowledge of your
products/services? Can they
see your uniqueness in your
company and understand
the image or the values you
wish to display? The im-
portance of identifying the
target audiences prior to
embarking on a public rela-


tions/advertising campaign
cannot be overstated.
Without knowing who the
campaign will communi-
cate to, it is difficult to es-
tablish the direction of the
campaign and its initiatives.
When taking into consider-
ation the target audience's
needs and values, we often
find ourselves in a position
where the entire presenta-
tion of the program must be
completely restructured. At
times, the initiative's pre-
sentation must be custom-
ized for multiple audiences,
necessitating a wide variety
of presentation stra-tegies,
each customized to appeal
to a different audience.
At this time caution is
needed if the company
mixes the audiences as this
might get distorted, result-
ing in the audiences not
receiving the message at all
or even misunderstanding
the message.
Approval to resources
should only be given when
you are comfortable with
the message. It's what you
have to do!

Building Hope Gala's House Rally Sets


Record of 60 Housing Units


COCONUT CREEK, Fla.
(Feb. 8, 2011) - More than
350 compassionate South
Florida residents attended
Food For The Poor's sold-
out Building Hope Gala on
Saturday, Feb. 5 at the Boca
West Country Club.
As the gala's name implies,
attendees gathered to cre-
ate a legacy by pledging
to build critically needed
houses during the char-
ity's live house-rally. This
year, the energized crowd
pledged to construct a re-
cord 60 housing units - to
restore hope and to shelter
the destitute in the Carib-
bean and Latin America.
"Imagine being afraid of the
very structure that serves
as your home," said Robin
Mahfood, CEO/President
of Food For The Poor. "No
one can fight poverty alone.
Together, we can continue
to improve the conditions
of endangered communi-
ties, one family at a time."
Food For The Poor can
build a simple housing unit
with a latrine for $3,200.
Food For The Poor homes
are built with a strong cor-
rugated zinc roof, a solid
concrete foundation, ce-
ment block walls, windows
for ventilation and a front


door that can be locked.
At the helm, event co-
chairpersons, Cathy and
Abdol Moabery and Rene
and Francis Mahfood,
steered a new course for
Food For The Poor's 16th
annual Building Hope
Gala. Committee members
included Ronda Gluck, Ju-
lie Mahfood, Pamela Mat-
sil, Natasha Singh, Patricia
Wallace and Traci Wilson.
The event's elegant cock-
tail reception and exclusive
silent auction began with
the sounds of saxophonist,
Leo Casino. Bidding on si-
lent auction prizes offered
opportunities for guests to
donate to the cause at the
same time. Prizes included
exclusive art and collect-
ibles from the Caribbean
and Latin America, de-
signer jewelry, luxury va-
cations, and golf and din-
ing packages. The Building
Hope Gala offered a full
night of exceptional dining,
dancing and inspirational
moments.
"We are blessed to live in
this country while in other
parts of the world a Food
For The Poor home pro-
vides a secure, dry and
potentially warm place to
sleep at night," said Cathy



I6 C


Moabery. "It is our hope
that receiving a Food For
The Poor home will give
them the will and deter-
mination to build stronger
family units, while also
building on their dreams."
The event co-chairpersons
and committee members
devised a unique way to
inspire gala attendees to
contribute toward making
a difference in the lives of
others. For a donation, 50
guests purchased a starfish
to see what they would win.
Each starfish represented a
unique gift. The grand prize
was a pair of beautiful dia-
mond earrings donated by
Gregory's Fine Jewelry
in Boca Raton. Gregory's
Fine jewelry also donated
necklaces and gift certifi-
cates for prizes.
Master of ceremonies,
Calvin Hughes, an Emmy
Award-winning newscaster
for WPLG-TV ABC Lo-
cal 10 News, shared stories
from his personal journeys
to Haiti where he reported
how nonprofits such as
Food For The Poor con-
tinue to strive to improve
lives and living conditions
throughout the country.
"What a small price to pay,
to give someone the joy
of having a place to call
home; a place where they
can have hope and, most
importantly, a place where
families can dream," said
Rene Mahfood.

Palm Beach and, even, Palm
Beach cannot compare to this
experience.
Boca Raton's history is well
documented and its resources
plentiful.
For those of you who know
me and at the risk of being a
one issue person, I extend the
notion of business, trade and
commerce to that of inter-
national business, trade and
commerce - and in support of
this proposition, I offer as an
experiment, a little exercise.
Close your eyes.... imagine
a map of the western hemi-
sphere....now place a com-
pass point on Boca Raton's
City Hall while drawing a
circle with a diameter of
5,000 miles....

Alas, what do you see?
You see that Boca Raton is
not located in the southeast-
ern section of the United
States but rather, you realize
that Boca Raton is located at

Al Zucaro is founder and chair


with historical perspectives


the epicenter of the western
hemisphere.
Incredible... simply by brand-
ing, Boca Raton becomes an
active player in international
business beyond the borders
of the city, even beyond the
borders of the county and,
alas, the country. Truly a re-
naissance city complete with
the historical perspective of
those visionary personalities
and their dreams over the last
half century.
So, for the moment, I pose
the following rhetorical ques-
tion. Is Boca Raton, with its
character, resources, perso-
nality and people, the inter-
national business capital of
Palm Beach County?
For purposes here, let's sim-
ply say that it is. What proof
do we have to support this as-
sertion? On March 3rd, Am-
bassador Luiz Augusto de
Araujo of Brazil will be vis-
iting the area. Over the past
two years, tours have been
conducted with Consul Gen-
erals and Ambassadors from
Argentina, Brazil, Canada, El
Salvador, Finland, Germany,
Israel, Italy, Mexico, Slova-
kia, and Spain.
In addition, Boca Raton is
identified in a 2010 econom-
ic impact study published at
www.worldcityweb.com.,
and the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Business Development
Board cites Boca Raton as
the most desirable reloca-
tion opportunity when corpo-
rate headquarters consider a
move to south Florida.


These indicia are only a be-
ginning. Branding efforts by
private sector interests sup-
ported by the local govern-
ment; fast track permitting;
significantly reduced real
estate values in housing and
commercial projects; and a
mature network of public
schools, roadways and infra-
structure are but a few of the
other factors that allow Boca
Raton to be seen as the inter-
national business capital of
the county.
So, what's next? Telling
this story to the world, of
course.... loudly, clearly, and
without hesitation.
Three inspirational state-
ments that must be added to
Boca Raton's lexicon of be-
liefs. These are as follows:
- BOCA RATON IS THE
INTERNATIONAL BUSI-
NESS CAPITAL OF PALM
BEACH COUNTY.

- BOCA RATON IS TO
PALM BEACH COUNTY
WHAT CORAL GABLES IS
TO DADE COUNTY.

- BOCA RATON IS AT THE
EPICENTER OF INTER-
NATIONAL BUISNESS
WITHIN THE WESTERN
HEMISPHERE.
If Boca Raton accepts these
inspirational statements to
be true, visions them as the
truth, and projects them with-
out hesitation as true, then
the end result is that they will
be seen as absolutely true
simply because Boca Raton
says they are true!

How better course management can

lower your Golf Score


February 17 through February 23, 2011 - Edition 35- 29


By David Nevogt

Whether you are just start-
ing to learn golf, or you
have been golfing for many
years and you're just look-
ing to refine your game, this
will provide a good direc-
tion of focus for this season.
If you want your score to
drop by any significant
amount, you should learn to
hit your 150 yard club, and
learn to hit it very well.
By "hitting your 150 yard
club very well", I mean be-
ing able to step up to the
ball, and KNOW that you
can hit any green that is 150
yards away. Every time, any
condition, with no pressure.
You need to get to the point
in your game where you can
hit those 8 or 9 irons very
consistently and accurately.
Anyone can do this. Be-
lieve it or not, 150 yards is
not very far away, and most
greens these days are very
big targets. The short irons
should be the easiest club
in your bag to hit. And if
they aren't the easiest clubs
to hit, you should work on
them until they are.
Once you master that shot,
everything else is a simple
adjustment. Your swing
will be on, and you can sim-
ply add or take away a little


club to adjust for varying
distances.
That's step 1.
Step 2 is designing your
game to work around your
"guaranteed 150 yard
shot".
Let's say you are on the
average 400 yard par 4. If
you have that 150 yard shot
in your bag, then it should
be very easy for you to get
onto the green in 3 shots.
Think about this...(I know
you wouldn't really do
this) but if you have the
150 yard shot, you can hit
it off the tee, and again for
your second shot, and end
up 100 yards out hitting 3
from the fairway.
Now you've put yourself
in a good position, which is
what course management is
all about. And better yet, if
you have the 150 yard shot
down, your 100 yard shots
are likely to be working a
lot better as well.
Even if you get yourself
into trouble off the tee, just
lay up to 150 yards out, and
use your 150 shot to get on
the green. This will do a ton
of good for your golf game.
You're on in 3, and you can
still save par or make bo-
gey with a 2 putt.
Start small, and master the
150 yard shot. Then build


your game around it. If you
do this, you won't have to
worry about so many bun-
ker shots, chip shots, and
all the other specialty shots
that make this game so
frustrating.
If you can get this shot
down, you've taken the first
step to breaking down your
game and lowering your
scores. Then you work on
your putting, and then you
work on your driver.
Now, I realize golf isn't as
easy as I've made it out to
be above, but it really can
be if you have the 150 yard
shot. I can guarantee that
you'll be playing the best
golf of your life this sea-
son, if you keep focus on
improving that 150 yard
shot. It is essential!
That's it for this newsletter.
I'll be in touch in the next
few weeks with some put-
ting tips that should really
have you stroking the ball.
If you would like to refine
your swing this season
"The Simple Golf Swing"
is a great place to start. You
can get it below. I guaran-
tee that it will cut 7 strokes
from your average score al-
most immediately.

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


By Matt Pineda

Once the HEAT return from
the All-Star break
on February 22,
they will begin
a near month of
tests. During that
stretch the HEAT
will play 10 of 12
games at home,
but they will not
be easy games. All
but three of those
games are against
current playoff
teams. Let's take a
look at their sche-
dule:
The HEAT will
open their post All-
Star break stretch
at home against the
Kings. This should
be an easy game
for them to shake
off any rust and get a good
win. Two nights later they
will play in Chicago for the
last chance to get a win in
Chicago this year during the
regular season. The HEAT
fell to the Bulls without
LeBron James in January.
The Bulls are right on the
heels of the HEAT for top


spots in the East. The next
night, Miami will be at
home against Washington.


The Wizards have only one
road win this year (Cleve-
land), and this should be
an easy back-to-back for
Miami.
Then the HEAT's difficult
stretch begins with home
games against the Knicks
and Magic, followed by
going to San Antonio on
a back-to-
back. Then
they re-
turn home
to play the
Bulls, Blaz-
ers, Lakers,
Grizzlies,
Spurs again,
and finally
the Thunder.
That is a
very tough
stretch of
games that
will test the
HEAT.
They get
4 opportu-


nities to avenge their
previous losses against
the Bulls, Knicks, and
Grizzlies. But
they also get the
chance to prove
they can beat the
good teams again
against the Lakers,
Blazers, and Ma-
gic. During this
stretch Miami
has its only two
games against the
Spurs who have
the league's best
record.
If Miami can make
it through these
sets of strong op-
ponents with 10
or more wins, they
will set themselves
up to be serious
front-runners for
the best record in
the Eastern Conference by
the end of the year. After
this set of games, the HEAT
will have 14 remaining
games, with only 3 teams
with winning records.
It's an important stretch for
the HEAT. It will test them
to see how far they have
come as a team. Everyone
will be watching. During
this 12 game stretch, the
HEAT will be on national
TV eight times. The HEAT
must show that they are
up for the challenge night
in and night out. Most im-
portantly, they need to stay
healthy and continue to
learn each other each game.
This could set the HEAT
up for great things in the
future, or reveal true strug-
gles that continue late in
the season.
Look forward to the Miami
HEAT playing great bas-
ketball against great oppo-
nents.


Allianz Championship decided on last

hole for 2nd straight year


Just last year, Boca Raton's own Bemhard Langer was trailing John Cook before a birdie
on the last hole of regulation forced a playoff that he eventually won.
This year, Tom Lehman birdied the final hole on Sunday to move past Jeff Sluman and Rod
Spittle and earn the victory at the Allianz Championship.
Lehman shot a three-under 69 and took the title at 13-under 203. It was good for a one-
stroke victory over Jeff Sluman and Rod Spittle.
"There's a lot of great players out here," Lehman later said. "They really bring out the best
in all of us. I'm happy with where I'm at."
Lehman had a 12-foot birdie putt at the par-three 16th to tie Sluman at 12-under par. At the
next hole, Lehman saved a par after he missed the green, but Spittle converted a six-footer
for a three-way tie.
Both Lehman and Spittle hit the fairway off the par-five 18th tee. Spittle was first and hit
his ball into a greenside bunker. Lehman's eight-iron came up almost 60 feet short of the


flagstick.
Spittle blasted out six feet
short of the cup. Lehman ran
his long birdie try four feet
past the hole, so both players
had a decent chance to make
a winning birdie putt.
Spittle pulled his birdie try, so
the pressure was on Lehman,
who calmly hit the ball in the
cup for his third victory on
the Champions Tour.
"This is why you play golf.
This is why you practice - to
put yourself in the position
to have to hit good shots and
good putts to win. Rod put the
pressure on all day. He never
gave up. Sometimes, when
you have to work at it a little
bit, it makes it much more
special." Lehman trailed by
one at the start of the final
round and finished with five
birdies and two bogeys on
Sunday.
