Safety tip from

Boca Raton Police

Boca Raton police safety tip
0. Can I carry a gun for protection in my car?

A: Best practice is to have a Florida concealed weap-
ons permit, ensuring you have had proper training
and understanding of your gun. In cars, Florida law
permits citizens to keep guns securely encased (in the
glove compartment, snapped in a holster, in a gun case,
or in a closed container requiring a lid be opened for
access) for lawful use. Unsecured firearms may not be
kept within arm's reach, such as under the driver's seat
or along the floorboard, without a concealed weapons

Bock warms of scam

targeting potential jurors

- County Clerk & Comp-
troller Sharon R. Bock
is warning Palm Beach
County residents to beware
of scammers attempting to
solicit personal informa-
tion from potential jurors.
In the scam, she said, a
caller falsely identifies
herself as a clerk's office
employee and asks for per-
sonal information, such as
a Social Security number,
to verify if the individual is
eligible for a non-existent
new jury program.
"It is critical that our citi-
zens understand that they
will never receive an unso-
licited call from the clerk's
jury office about jury duty,
nor will anyone ask for
a juror's Social Security
number," warned Bock.
So far, she said, there has
been just one instance
of this scam reported to
the clerk's office in Palm
Beach County, but the
fraudulent call is similar to
ones reported by this office
in 2007. Previous scams
included fraudulent callers

attempting to collect fines
for missing jury duty and
callers requesting personal
information after falsely
claiming an arrest warrant
had been issued for mis-
sing jury duty.
None of those calls were
legitimate, as the clerk's
office does not solicit fines
or issue warrants for miss-
ing jury duty.
Victims of such a scam
should contact their local
law enforcement agency.

answers to questions about
jury service in Palm Beach
County, visit the Jury sec-
tion of the clerk's website

County reaching out to panhandlers

with options for assistance

By Commissioner
Steven L. Abrams

Panhandling, a controver-
sial topic remains an on-
going issue on roadway
medians countywide. Over
the years, there has been
a high level of complaints
and public safety issues
and the Board of County
Commissioners has been
unable to adopt an ordi-
nance due to conflicts with
the First Amendment.
For example, any regula-
tion passed must be ap-
plied equally to all indi-
viduals including groups
using the county's medi-
ans and roads to distribute
materials or solicit funds.

Firefighters col-
lecting for a char-
ity could be well
received, whereas
an individual who
appears homeless
may not. Any dis-
tinction would be
prohibited by the
Another major
problem in com-
bating panhan-
dling is enforce-
ment and public
safety. A deputy
has to witness the
violation in order
to make an arrest,
and if an arrest is made
the individual is held for
a day and then released.
Statistics have shown a
29 percent increase in traf-
fic crashes at intersections
identified as most active
for panhandlers.
So what can be done? The
county, in partnership with
the Sheriff's Office, re-
cently introduced a new
campaign that includes an
educational program using
media, signage, volunteers
and the Intemet.
Also, another important
aspect of the initiative in-
cludes community out-
reach to the panhandlers
by providing them with vi-

able options to get the help
they require. For example,
deputies and volunteers
actively hand out infor-
mation advising them on
where they can find food,
shelter and other essential
Even though it is with
the best intentions to give
money to a panhandler,
more often than not it is
used to buy illegal drugs
and alcohol. There is also
a large contingency of in-
dividuals panhandling who
are falsely identifying them-
selves as veterans, which
is punishable by law. So
please know that it is OK
to say "no" to panhandling.

this matter, to volunteer or

Sgt. Adam Rosenthal: a leader, role

model, a father to many

I * , i1
By: C.Ron Allen

When Delray Beach Po-
lice Sgt. Adam Rosenthal
responded to a 911 call for
a wreck, he was saddened
to see that the victim's face
was familiar. It was one of
his students in his martial
arts class.
"This is a nice kid. He
learned what it was to be
a man, how to treat others
with respect, how to find
God," Rosenthal said in
his eulogy. "I'm going to
miss him."
Exactly five years and a
week after that crash,
Rosenthal himself was kil-
led as he lost control of his
cruiser and struck a palm
tree in Boca Raton. The
husband and father of four
young children was airlift-
ed to Delray Medical Cen-
ter, where he later died.
Not only did he leave be-
hind colleagues who refer

to themselves as "a bro-
ken-hearted family," his
loss was felt by several in
the community he served
for 16 years.
Rosenthal founded and ran
a youth martial arts pro-
gram through the Delray
Judo Club in the commu-
nity. He changed the lives
of hundreds of children,
giving them an outlet, en-
couragement, and a father-
figure to look up to.
"He was so nice and cool,"
said Jabari Wilson, 9, a stu-
dent in Rosenthal's martial
arts class at the Knights
of Pythagoras Mentoring
Network. "He would al-
ways make us laugh and
he was so funny and nice."
Rosenthal, whose passion
was policing and helping
underprivileged children
through martial arts, began
instructing the class two
years ago, said C. Ron Al-
len, founder and CEO of
the KOPMN. He used the
opportunity to instill disci-
pline and character in the
youth, Allen said.
"He would always tell
them he was not teaching
them to beat somebody up.
Instead he was teaching
them how to not get beaten
up," he said. "Adam did
so much for the children
of this city. His loss will

create such a void among
With more than 80 com-
mendations, he was also
the lead rape aggression
defense instructor and
a member of the SWAT
For all who knew the man
remembered as larger than
life in stature, passion and
personality Rosenthal's
death is still beyond com-
"The phrase, the good die
young is true this morn-
ing," Officer Jeffrey Mess-
er said.
"He had an amazing sense of
humor," Sgt. Nicole Guer-
rero said. "Adam touched
so many people. He was
a comforter. I knew him
personally. If you needed
comfort, he'd give it. He
was just an amazing per-

Slosberg bill would ban teen cell phone

use and texting while driving

Rep. Irv Slosberg was a
leading supporter of high-
way safety issues during
his first six years in the
House of Representatives.
Now back in Tallahassee
for a second stint, the Boca
Raton rep said he plans to
file a bill in this year's leg-
islative session designed to
restrict cell phone use by
certain motorists.
Slosberg made public
his bill, "X The Text" No
More Texting For Minors"
during a recent assembly
at Olympic Heights High
School in West Boca.
"The number one cause of
death for those under the
age of 18 is motor vehicle
fatalities and 87 percent of
these crashes for teens are
due to distracted driving,"
the Boca rep said. "In light
of this startling statistic,
Senator Thad Altman and
I will be filing Bill 35160:
the Minor Traffic Safety
The bill would mandate
the following:
Hands-free phone use for
minors and no texting
or use of hand-held cell
phones while driving. He
said this will allow minors
"to focus on the road."
The bill would also pro-
hibit texting or use of
hand-held cell phones by
bus drivers, but would al-
low hands-free phone use.
The measure also includes
restrictions on the number

of passengers in cars ope-
rated by minors. "Minors
will have the number of
minor passengers limited
until the age of 18," said
Slosberg. "Non-complian-
ce will be fined as a mov-
ing violation."
"This limits the number of
minors that are allowed to
drive together in vehicles,
while allowing minors to
drive with siblings and
other relatives as passen-
gers." Vehicles operated
by minors would bear a
placard similar to a handi-
capped tag.
'Minors will be required to
mark themselves as under-
age drivers by driving with
a specialized placard, hung
over the rearview mirror,"

said Slosberg. "Non-com-
pliance will be fined as a
non-moving violation."
In addition to Slosberg,
other speakers at the
Olympic Heights assem-
bly were Principal Frank
Rodriguez, Connie Tuman
Rugg and Eric Stem from
the School District of Palm
Beach County, Roz Eisen-
stark from Allstate, Emily

Lambert made an unusual
comeback somewhat late
in life - he's in his early
60s - performing to packed

Finding inspiration on an evening in

Boca Raton

My wife reminded me se-
veral times that she wanted
to attend a recent lecture
at Florida Atlantic Univer-
sity. The advance story had
caught her attention.
So, we went - and I'm glad
we did. I didn't expect to
hear a speaker with such
wisdom and ability to
inspire as James Finley,
Ph.D., a former monk
who left the monastery to
take on a number of new
vocations - including that
of clinical psychologist.
He offered a lecture on
"Childlike Acceptance as
A Path to Inner Peace."
Finley, a former student
of Catholic monk Thomas
Merton, talked about using
contemplation and medita-
tion to sustain us and find
inner peace. The lecture
hearkened back to last
year's visit by the Dalai
Lama, who told an audi-
ence at FAU that people
must find their own inner
peace before there can be
peace in the world. And
unfortunately, it appears
we are living in an era
when inner peace is put on
the back burner in favor of
outward chaos - from Cai-
ro to Wisconsin.

I'll admit I did not under-
stand every idea that the
former monk spoke about
in his hour-long lecture
that ended with everyone
in the audience sitting still
and meditating for five
minutes. But he was clear
on several matters - in fact,
some things are just com-
mon sense.
It seemed odd that for a
man of peace, Finley noted
that those who have been
traumatized must express
their anger before they can
forgive. He said those who
have felt the pain of abuse
or neglect cannot just for-
give - the anger will some-
how find a way out. And
unresolved anger will sim-
ply get in the way of re-
solving the trauma.
He talked of childhood ac-
ceptance and offered a sto-
ry. He said a mother and
son were next to him on a
plane. The boy was looking
out the window when he
said, "Mom, does the man
driving the plane know the
way to grandma's house?"
The mother answered,
"Close enough."
The child, in his innocence,
accepted that answer. But
the mother quickly real-

ized she hadn't given the
boy the whole story. She
put down her magazine,
held her child close and
looked out the window
with him.
Childhood acceptance
doesn't mean accepting
without thought. It doesn't
involve blindly accepting
things in the world, like
water and fire, without re-
alizing that both can hurt
or kill - through burning or
Because he was raised as
a Christian, Finley point-
ed out how Jesus, 2,000
years ago, taught us that
we must accept the King-
dom of God with the un-
conditional acceptance of
a child. But in answer to
a question, he said Buddha
also offered ideas similar
to Jesus. It seems less the
person and more the mes-
sage that is important.
Finley encouraged us to go
home and meditate, to pay
attention to each breath we
take. He noted that all of
us in that room had awak-
ened that morning. "Some
people who went to bed
last night with big plans for
today did not wake up," he
noted. Suddenly, the value

of life soared.
We also learned some-
thing about the value of
the Peace Studies Pro-
gram at FAU from Barbara
Schmidt, one of its bene-
factors. "There will be no
lasting world peace until
we have inner peace," she
That is why she, her hus-
band, Richard, and other
Boca benefactors Elaine
Wold and Christine Lynn
donated $600,000 to es-
tablish the Lynn, Wold
and Schmidt Peace Stud-
ies Endowment, the first
permanent endowment for
FAU's peace studies pro-
gram. The purpose was to
establish an endowed fund
to support educational and
community outreach ac-
tivities in the peace studies
program within the Doro-
thy F. Schmidt College of
Arts and Letters.
More speakers will be
visiting later. Take part.

Let's look at the power of
social media as it relates to
the recent wave of protests
in various nations.
First, contemplate the fact
that Facebook has played a
major role in recent events
in Cairo, Egypt and other
Middle East cities. Even
the relatively quiet protest
in Boca Raton against for-
mer Egyptian strongman
Hosni Mubarak was the re-
sult of information distrib-
uted via social media.
In the 1960s, the protests
that took place across
America - from Berkley
to Boston, Chicago to Los
Angeles - had no basis in
real time communication.
Organizing was done with
hand-distributed fliers and
articles in the so-called
"alternative newspapers."
When protesters arrived at
their intended destination,
law enforcement officials
were already there with
shields and nightsticks to
ward off violence
Now, there is Facebook
and Twitter - media offe-

Opposition groups form-

But the coalitions being

They have used the "new

the extent to which the new
media played a role in the
toppling of the regimes of
Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in
Tunisia and Hosni Mubarak
in Egypt. The massive pu-

these regimes were not just
spontaneous reactions to re-

government over poor eco-

By using social media,
opposition groups are bet-

It may not have been social

Strive to Arrive!

Many years ago I was chal-
lenged with a most mean-
ingful question: "Where
will you be when you get
where you're going?"
Since then that question
has helped me to stay on
course, and to know pre-
cisely where I am and
where I'm heading.
It doesn't take a genius to
recognize that the road to
tomorrow passes through
many yesterdays. Some
of the experiences may be
unforgettable and exhila-
rating. Others may be chal-
lenging but not paralysing.
Still others may be disas-
trous, and should never be
repeated again.
No matter what happens
along the way, life must go
on and we need to be pro-
active in taking control,
with divine help, of all our
steps and actions leading us
to where we need to be.
An elderly friend of mine,
who lost his wife of many
years, while struggling with
his loneliness and grief,
used to comfort himself by

repeating the phrase: "The
show must go on!" Because
he had been in show busi-
ness for much of his adult
life, this phrase connoted
something he was used to,
and now he was applying it
to his life as a whole.
Indeed, in all situations, in
spite of whatever barriers
one may face, "the show
must go on." Yet, most of-
ten it goes on under a new
script, and those partici-
pating in it must learn and
adapt themselves to the
new script. In the words of
Christoph Blumhardt, "we
cannot be swallowed up
by the present, for we are
bound to the future."
Some people, unfortunate-
ly, only have a peep-hole
view of reality. They sel-
dom know where they are
and much less where they
are going. They need a new
way of looking at self and
at the world around. For
this, they require "critical
inspection" as a necessary
device in their day-by-day

To make progress, to get
somewhere, we need to
have a clear understanding
of where we are going, but
also of where we are com-
ing from. Both dimensions
shall influence our arrival
at a certain, specific des-
tination. Avoid short-cuts,
follow any by-pass with
caution, and strive to stay
on the road. Just re-exam-
ine your steps to be sure
they are leading you where
you need to go!
Some years ago, the close
of a few delightful hours of
dreaming, strategizing, and
just having wonderful fel-
lowship together, my dear-
est friend, Jameson Reeder,
said farewell with these
incisive words: "The road
lies ahead! The turns we
choose are the adventures
that we live!" There should
be no fear in faith, no fear
in hope, and no fear in
love! Thus, strive to arrive,
and may both the journey
and the reached destination
be a delight!

can learn to pray effectively
for themselves and others.
International Christian
speaker Elise Moore says,
"Healing prayer is based
on a conviction that God
is good and all-powerful.
There is nothing wrong with
long prayers but children
and adults can learn short
prayers that actually change
thought - and heal."
Moore is presenting a work-
shop/talk entitled, "Texting
God: Effective Short Prayers"
Monday, March 7 from 7 to
8 p.m. at the Spanish River
Library, 1501 NW Spanish

talk includes specific short

prayers and illustrates how a
person can use these prayers
effectively for themselves
and others," said Moore.
Healings of unemployment,
altitude sickness, sinus
headache/congestion, and
more will be explained.
All attendees will receive
handouts with healing
Bible verses as well as a
few short prayers that have
consistently proven to help,
heal and change a person's
life. Children are welcome
and especially enjoy the first
half hour where one word
prayers are presented.
Elise Moore has been in
the Christian healing min-
istry for 25 years. Fluent in
Spanish, during the last 5

years Moore has spoken in
convention centers, univer-
sities, prisons, churches and
for civic and youth groups
in over 275 cities and 13
countries around the world.

Whelchel runs for re-election,

addresses surprise candidate

By Donovan Ortega

Mayor Susan Whelchel
held a fundraiser at Uncle
Julio's in Mizner park on
Monday evening to raise
money for her re-election
campaign. Whelchel was
running unopposed until a
surprise candidate, Linda
Spurling Gruneisen, filed
papers on February 10th,
six hours before the dead-
line for potential candi-
The patio of Uncle Ju-
lio's was tightly packed as
members of the communi-
ty showed their support for
Whelchel's campaign.
Michael Ging, a Boca Ra-
ton business owner, was
especially pleased with the
mayor's actions in office
during her previous terms.
"She's been great," he said.
"It's been a difficult time
these last couple of years
with the recession, but she
understands business peo-
ple and has worked well
with the community as a
Steve Laine, Boca Raton
resident and member of
Rotary International, also
had positive things to say
of the mayor.
"She has a passion, energy,
and desire to be a public
servant, a good public ser-
vant," said Laie.
Also on hand was former
mayor of Boca Raton,
Steven Abrams. He intro-
duced Mayor Whelchel
humorously, noting that
she was the best "female"
mayor Boca has ever
had. The joke got a few
laughs, but not as many
as Whelchel did when she


remarked that every time Abrams introduced her, it was
obvious he was "jealous."
All jokes aside, Whelchel got down to business in a
speech that focused briefly on the successes of her past
term: cutting the budget while not raising taxes and creat-
ing strong business partnerships. But what got the biggest
buzz from the crowd was when Whelchel addressed her
opponent without even mentioning her name.
"I can't tell you anything about my opponent," said
Whelchel, with her slight southern accent. "She does not
know me. I do not know her. I don't think you know her.
She doesn't know you. And she darn sure doesn't know
anything about Boca."
As a result of Gruneisen's running for mayor, it has been
estimated that the city will have to spend up to 100,000
dollars for ballots, voting equipment, and poll workers.

SWest Side Story' at Broward

Center a modern classic with a new voice

On one hand, "West Side
Story" is a time capsule of
a bygone era of the mid-50s
in New York City.
On the other hand, the
much-beloved musical re-
vival that plays through
Feb. 27 at Broward Center
is a timeless love story bor-
rowed freely from Shake-
speare's "Romeo and Ju-
The national touring pro-
duction in residence in Fort
Lauderdale is a little bit
of both. Arthur Laurents,
the original librettist (with
composer Leonard Bern-
stein and lyricist Stephen
Sondheim) rewrote some
of the dialogue and lyrics in
Spanish as well as English.
Laurents, who should be
considered a national trea-
sure, also directed the
Broadway show that opened
in March, 2009.
This is the third major re-
vival of the record-break-
ing, precedent-setting, multi
Tony Award-winning show
that opened on Broadway
in 1957 if you don't count
the 1961 movie, which
would make it the fourth.
In addition to the bilin-
gual dialogue, which makes
sense considering half the
characters are Puerto Ri-
can, the original Jerome
Robbins choreography has
been restaged and in subtle
ways re-envisioned by Joey
McKneeley ("The Boy
from Oz").
As a result this "West Side
Story" is a fresh look at
a musical theater classic
more than 50 years old.
Playing the Romeo role of
Tony is Kyle Harris, who is

5th Annual Allianz Championship was a winner for many: Champion Lehman, City of

Boca Raton, Broken Sound Club, and Boca Raton Regional Hospital

It was another successful
tournament for the PGA
Champions Tour's Al-
lianz Championship that
celebrated its fifth year at
The Old Course of Bro-
ken Sound in Boca Raton,
Florida. With free admis-
sion once again being
offered compliments of
tournament sponsors Al-
lianz Life, Administaff,
JM Lexus, Konica Minolta
Business Solutions and the
City of Boca Raton, spec-
tators were once again giv-
en a dramatic "down to the
wire" show of golf ending
with Tom Lehman birdy-
ing the final 18th hole for a
one stroke victory over Jeff
Sluman and Rod Spittle.
All three days of champi-
onship play were televised
on the Golf Channel with
segments showcasing the
features, advantages and
benefits of living, working,
and visiting Boca Raton.
Event week teed-off with
may new events includ-
ing an inaugural Execu-
tive Women's Pro-am
with executive business
women playing golf with
the Champions Tour Pros.
Sales for the limited spots
sold quickly leaving orga-
nizers with many ideas on
which to expand this "gals

Also new this year was
the Fairway 5K race held
on the tournament course
kicking off "Family Day"
on Saturday morning be-
fore the pros teed off for
their second round of
championship competi-
tion. More than 150 run-
ners of all ages braved
the morning rain, which
stopped just as the start-

ing horn sounded, running
fairways and along cart
paths to finish on the 18th
green surrounded by cor-
porate tents and cheering
friends and family.
"While the weather may
have 'dampened' our run-
ner numbers this year, we
built a strong foundation
for this to become a highly
anticipated annual event,"
noted Dillon. "Runners lo-
ved the unique experience
of running on a mixed trail
including grass, small hills,
crushed sea shells, along

trees, and an occasional os-
Following the 5K as the
golfers commenced their
battle for the $1.8 million
purse, families came out in
droves for our first Fami-
ly Day to take advantage
of the daylong schedule
of free activities hosted
by the City of Boca Ra-
ton that included bounce
houses, face painting, ju-
nior golfing competitions,
and picture taking with the
mascots from the Florida
Marlins, Miami Heat, St.
Louis Cardinals, Miami
Dolphins and the Geico
Gecko. There were always
big crowds surrounding
the white JM Lexus RX
350 staged to be painted by
the young children artists;
not a speck of white paint
visible once they finished.
The real winner of the Al-
lianz Championship, how-
ever, is always charity.
The Boca Raton Champi-
ons Golf Charities, Inc.,
whose main beneficiary is
the Boca Raton Regional
Hospital, raised more than

$400,000. "It's truly ates-
tament to the City of Boca
Raton, many community
leaders and more than 200
sponsors coming together
for a great cause," added
Dillon who noted that the
popular annual Allianz
Championship Golf &
Wine event featuring va-
rietals from golf pro vine-
yards also helped drive
charity numbers.
In addition to the growing
charity dollars, this tour-
nament continues to bring
in more than $15 million

' Measuring productivity and

projecting goals

If a business does not plan
to expand its productivity,
then it is planning for fai-
lure. It will become stag-
nant and, just through nor-
mal attrition; it will lose its
base of clients.
Measuring productivity and
increasing sales volume is
an important function of
management. They must
know how to put necessary
training into action, set re-
alistic goals and evaluate
performance of the individ-
ual employee, the group
and the department. These
combined measurements
reflect on the company's
success. Although the task
can be stressful and ongo-
ing, it is a manager's re-
sponsibility. Avoiding it
does a disservice to the em-
ployees and the company.
Management's job is that
of tracing and evaluating
productivity. Should pro-
ductivity fall behind, the
manager's job is to get to
the bottom of it and ad-
dress it. Setting sales pro-
jections and realistic goals
is one of the first steps to
get a hold on productivity.
This requires monitoring
sales, acquiring new cli-

ents and keeping the pre-
sent ones.
Drops in productivity can
be traced to a host of rea-
sons. Regardless of the rea-
son, address the situation as
quickly as possible in order
to restore normal activity.
The manager must draw
upon his/her knowledge to
spot weaknesses and also
employ their people skills
to initiate a meaningful
dialogue with their staff.
Projecting goals should be
re-evaluated with each new
public relations and ad-
vertising campaign and/
or at the beginning of ev-
ery quarter. All personnel
responsible for increasing
productivity should also
be involved in setting and
attaining their goals. Top
producers are no exception
as they could easily lose
their ranking if their per-
formances are neglected.
In a selling situation there
is what is known as the
"80-20 rule." The rule sta-
tes that about 20 percent of
the sales force sells about
80 percent of the compa-
ny's business. The reasons
for this could be many. It
could be their territory or

account assignment. The
'Big City' assignment is
more lucrative than the
small town one. There are
more prospective clients,
they cater to a larger popu-
lation and have a higher
volume. Then, of course,
there are "super sales-
people" who will always
come out on top because
of their selling skills and
exceptional talent. Taking
all this into account, the re-
sponsible manager will set
realistic goals.
In establishing the final
goal, the manager must
also take into account the
type of territory, account
assignment, previous and
current volume, and trends
in the specific marketplace
and territory. The evalua-
tion process of the individ-
ual and the weight of the
final numbers must include
perimeters that are fair to
all segments.

"Assumptions" Part 5

This is a continuation of a
series we are considering
on "Assumptions" and their
subtle effects on us. We are
considering three areas of
distortions in our thinking
that need constant evalua-
tion: Personal Distortions,
Cultural Distortions and
Philosophical Distortions.
We will consider today a
Cultural Distortion...
Cultural Distortion #1:
"You can have everything
you want"
We live in a time of un-
precedented abundance.
Never before have so ma-
ny "things" been available.
The media bombards us dai-
ly through advertisements,
television shows, movies,
music, and now pop-up ads
every time we access the in-
temet. It seems every com-
pany has tooled their facto-
ries to putting out an endless
supply of "stuff' to such a
point that the moment you
buy something, it is almost
immediately outdated.
We are all familiar with such
lines as "'If it feels good, do
it'; 'Go for all the gusto';
'Do your own thing'; 'who
says you can't have it all."
These and a thousand more
like them seem to imply you
can have everything you
desire without cost, pain or
consequences. In The Age
newspaper, there appeared
an article which spoke of
unabated consumerism rea-
ching even into childhood.
"The increasing corpora-

tisation of childhood has
created miserable young
people who have much, but
value little. These children
are too young to understand,
but much of their discontent
and many of their anxiet-
ies stem from the corporate
capture of childhood, that
is, the way modem busi-
ness corporations shape chil-
dren's dreams and desires,
determine their school ex-
perience and influence their
behavior and values.
Modem affluent societies
overflow with a coruco-
pia of goods produced for
the entertainment, pleasure,
convenience and education
of children, yet increasingly
there are signs that in some
of the most prosperous na-
tions, particularly English-
speaking countries, some-
thing is amiss. Those same
children seem to be less
content, more stressed and
less healthy than any previ-
ous generation...
The consequence of this
corporate capture of child-
hood has been a generation
of children who have been
manipulated, shaped and
exploited as never before.
Not only have they lost the
opportunity to play and de-
velop at their own pace,
their psyches have been
damaged and their view of
the world distorted.
They are trained rather than
educated and constantly
tested to make sure they
have absorbed the "cor-

rect" information. They are
supposed to seek happiness
in possessions, treat relation-
ships as a means to an end,
and incessantly compete
with each other. Children
have never before been un-
der such pressure to 'suc-
ceed, conform and look
good'." (Extract from The
Age, 'Girls and boys come
out to buy,' by Sharon Be-
der, August 17, 2009.)
There is not a single person
who has ever had it all. We
can't have it all, and I be-
lieve we don't want it all. In
life, we will constantly have
to make decisions between
things. When you enter a
restaurant, the waiter never
gives you the option "Do
you want everything on the
menu?" Life is a menu of
things you can choose from,
but the choice of one thing
means the exclusion of
other things. The choice to
devote a lot of time and en-
ergy at work usually means
taking time from family and
The Bible has much to say
about contentment, and one
thing is certain; getting more
stuff never brought con-
tentment. "Whoever loves
money never has money
enough; whoever loves
wealth is never satisfied
with his income. This too
is meaningless." (Ecc. 5.10
NIV) Isaac Bickerstaffe put
it this way: "If I am content
with little, enough is as good
as a feast." A great truth to
live by...

Woman can get damages from

he-ex husband who gave her

Question: For the last 15
years I have been married
to a man who has had a
stellar career in the hos-
pitality industry. He has
worked for a succession
of public companies for
various hotel chains all
over the world. Ten years
ago, I developed genital
herpes, which could have
only come ;himigh sexual
contact with my husband,
at a time we lived on the
Florida west coast.
I talked to a divorce law-
yer, where we lived at the
time, about a divorce. He
,,, ..'. , ,, ' bringing a case
against my husband for
damages for my having
contracted this life long
disease from my husband,
who admitted that he had
cheated on me, knew that
he had the disease, but
never told me.
At that time, and ever
since, my husband told
me that because of his
job with a public com-
pany, that if I sued him
for divorce it would hurt
his career However if I
also sued him for dam-
ages, and alleged the facts
about the sexually trans-
mitted disease, he would
be automatically fired,

and never be able to get
another job in the indus-
try; that we would be ru-
ined financially. I backed
offand did not file.
The last ten years have
not been easy. Every time
I brought up divorce, and
my other claim, he re-
peated his claim that it
would get him fired. Last
week I caught him cheat-
ing on me again. I spoke
to a lawyer yesterday who
is going to represent me in
my divorce.
I asked her whether we
could still sue him for the
damages for contracting
the disease 10 years ago.
She said that she was
not certain. The normal
statute of limitations was
four years for a damage
case in Florida. Do you
think I can still sue him
for damages, as well as
for divorce? Should I go
entirely with my divorce
attorney or consider a
second attorney for the
damages part of my case?

Answer: Although it was
not always allowable, for
the last many years hus-
bands and wives, in Flo-
rida, have had the right to
sue one another for dam-

ages for personal injury
claims arising during the
marriage. You can sue for
negligence, fraud and de-
ceit, intentional infliction
of emotional distress, and
battery arising out of the
sexual transmission of a
sexual disease.
In order to get around the
four year statute of limita-
tions, you should take the
position that your husband
raised the limitations issue
by his conduct in threaten-
ing you that economic re-
prisals would be devastat-
ing to your family if you
filed such a claim against
him. Recently, this posi-
tion was successful in a
Florida appellate court ca-
Your damages can be as-
sessed against your hus-
band's share of the marital
estate, which is distribut-
able to him on the divorce
side of the case. Ask your
divorce attorney for a re-
ferral to highly qualified
personal injury attorney,
who will take that part of
the case on a contingency
basis. It would be unusual,
but not impossible, to find
a skilled divorce attorney
who is also skilled at per-
sonal injury cases.

Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law.

Winter is no menace for businesses

February 24 through March 2, 2011 - Edition 36- 23

By: Jennifer Natalie Ortega

t's official! There is to
be six more weeks of
winter. The ground-
hog retreated into
his burrow and cities like
Chicago, New York and
Boston are buried in ice
and snow. The rest of the
country continues to be
pestered by blizzards and
storms. On the other hand,
Florida is experiencing on-
ly a slight chill and is in
good shape as far as busi-
ness is concerned.
BCT Limousine and Car

pleased. They routinely re-
ceive extra appointments
and double bookings due
to the weather.

Gabashvili Upsets Isner, Querrey Wins

By: Steve Dorsey

The Delray Beach ITC lost
two of its top four seeds
Monday on the first day
of the ATP World Tour
tournament at the Delray
Beach Stadium and Tennis
Andy Roddick, the No. 1
seed and No. 8-ranked
player in the world, with-
drew from the tournament
late Monday afternoon
because of illness. About
eight hours later, Russian
Teymuraz Gabashvili up-
set No. 4 seed John Isner,
who is ranked No. 32 in
the world, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6
(13) in a match that did not
end until shortly after mid-
night. Gabashvili clinched
the match when Isner
double-faulted on the 28th
point of the tiebreak.
"We were both fighting
so hard," said Gabashvili,
who flung his arms into
the air in jubilation after
Isner's second serve was
called out to end the match.
"He played better than me,"
an obviously disappointed
Isner said.
Seventh-seeded Benjamin
Becker of Germany also
lost his first-round match
to American wild-card en-
try James Blake, but No.
3 seed Sam Querrey ad-
vanced to the second round
with a three-set win against
Dustin Brown of Germany.
The Champions Tour se-
cured its championship
match Monday. It will
match Aaron Krickstein
and Mark Philippoussis on
Tuesday in the nightcap.
Krickstein toppled John
McEnroe 6-3, 4-6 (10-3)

Monday night to finish a
perfect 3-0 in pool play.
Querrey shrugged off a
sore shoulder to win his
first-round match, a 6-3,
5-7, 6-3 victory against
"He's got a huge first serve
that's a little unorthodox,"
Querrey said of Brown.
"I'm just happy to get
through it. My shoulder's a
little sore, but I'm just get-
ting better, which is good."
Blake needed only two
sets to oust Becker 7-5,
6-4. Blake has won all
four matches he has played
against Becker.
"I played aggressive, which
is something I haven't
been doing lately," said
Blake, who was the ITC
runner-up in 2007 and '08.
"That's the game that car-
ries me the farthest. I can't
let my opponent dictate my
Monday's other ITC first-
round singles winners were

Brazil's Ricardo Mello, the
2004 ITC champion who
overcame a first-set loss to
defeat Germany's Reiner
Schuettler 2-6, 6-2, 6-3, and
Frenchman Florent Serra,
who also lost his first set
but battled back to beat
American Ryan Harrison
3-6, 6-3, 7-5.
Slovakia's Blaz Kavcic,
Aussie Marinko Matosevic,
American Ryan Sweeting
and Colombian Alejandro
Falla filled out the remain-
ing qualifying spots in the
ITC main draw on Mon-
day. Three others also
were added to the 32-play-
er bracket, all because of
illness-related withdraw-
als - Russian Igor Kunit-
syn, Czech Jan Hajek and
American Donald Young.
Kavcic, the No. 1 seed in
the qualifying draw, defeat-
ed Young 6-2, 6-3; Matos-
evic bounced back from a
first-set loss to beat Kunit-
syn 1-6, 6-3, 6-3; Sweeting

topped Hajek 6-3, 6-4; and
Falla ousted Frank Dancev-
ic 6-4, 6-2.
Two doubles matches al-
so were played Monday.
Americans Scott Lipsky
and Rajeev Ram defeated
Jonathan Erlich and Andy
Ram of Israel 6-2, 3-6 (10-
2). Germany's Christopher
Kas teamed with Aussie
Alexander Peya to take a
7-5, 6-4 win against Brown
and Rogier Wassen of the

Former Boca Raton Resident,

Andy Roddick, Withdraws

from Delray Beach ITC


By: Pedro Heizer

Former Boca Raton resi-
dent, Andy Roddick has
decided to withdraw him-
self from this week's Del-
ray Beach International
Tennis Championships due
to an illness.
Roddick, the No. 8 player
in the world, was penciled
as the top seed at the event.
Before he even got to Del-
ray, he had already com-
plained about feeling ill
before beating Milos Ra-
onic in Sunday's final in
Memphis for his 30th ca-
reer win.
"When I woke up yester-
day, I felt like I got hit like
a bus." said Roddick to re-
porters at the Delray ITC
Media Conference earlier
this afternoon.
Roddick, who played his
high school tennis in Boca

Raton, made his ATP debut
at the 2000 Delray Beach
ITC event and was the run-
ner-up in 2002.
"I'm very disappointed.
I've waited too long to
come back and play this
tournament," said Rod-
dick, "It's just unfortunate
timing. I was looking for-
ward to coming back. I
honestly don't feel I can
go out there and give my
Regardless of his with-
draw from the Delray
Beach ITC, Roddick is
still expected to lead the
United States against Chile
in a Davis Cup first-round
tie in Santiago next week.
This week's top seed now
in the Delray Beach ITC
is American Mardy Fish,
who was the 2009 cham-
pion and 2003 runner-up.

Golf Gadgets: For the

golfer who has everything

By: John Bolt

Golf gadgets: Who wants
them? Who needs them?
These little devices come
in as many shapes, sizes,
and forms as there are
stars in the universe. Un-
like short-game training
devices or swing aids they
do not work directly on
teaching you the proper
techniques of the golf
swing. However they are
indeed incredibly creative
in unexpected and very
imaginative ways. They
are made to make the cra-
zy game of golf more fun,
a lot less strenuous and
simply easier to play.
It is for this reason that the
avid golfer in the family
can no longer go through
any Christmas without
receiving one accessory
either in their stocking
or under the tree. These
golf gadgets have become
somewhat of a phenom-
enon and even a tradition
in some households be it
good or bad.
For the golfer who is re-
ceiving these gifts it be-
comes a sheer reminder
of how much they need
to work on their games.
To some it can even be-
come and embarrassment
to think that these little
golf accessories can help
improve their games. For
others they give them a
great little giggle when
they see what some crazy
fool has come with to help
their golf swing.
Do we as golfers really
need them? Some would
say yes that these little
golf gadgets are essential
to improving their per-
formance on the course.

These golf addicts will
go to every extreme and
buy every little gadget
out there because they
feel that it will help. On
the other hand, most of us
know that there is no cure
other than straight hard
practice that nobody re-
ally wants to do let alone
has time for.
Unfortunately most of the
golf gadgets on the market
are not perfect and have
some sort of a defect or
an annoying flaw. That is
why most of them don't
make it into widespread
circulation and use. Hav-
ing said that, there are a
small number of good lit-

tie gadgets out there that
actually work!
These items include the
suction cup on the grip
of your putter that makes
it easier to pickup your
ball from the hole with-
out bending over. Another
good one that is almost es-
sential to every player is
the divot repair tool that

can come in many shapes
and styles. You also have
the Brush-T that is said to
make contact with the ball
less inhibiting by making
the tee flexible. One other
must have for the average
golfer is the groove clean-
er to help remove the dirt
from your clubs so you
can hit a crisper shot.
The most important thing
to remember about these
items is that they are main-
ly for fun. They're great to
have and enjoy every time
you play golf. There are
so many golf gadgets out
there in the market you
just have to pick the ones
you think are cool and
simply try them!

Empire State of Mind: Anthony

Is a Knickerbocker

Carmelo Anthony is no
longer a Denver Nugget.
The Nuggets traded Melo
to the New York Knicks
Monday night, a league
source confirmed. In the
trade, Denver gets Wil-
son Chandler, Raymond
Felton, Danilo Gallinari,
Timofey Mozgov, the
Knicks 2014 first-round
draft pick, the Warriors'
2012 second-round pick,
the Warriors' 2013 second-
round pick and $3 million
in cash.
Anthony will go to New
York, along with Chaunc-
ey Billups, Shelden Wil-
liams, Anthony Carter and
Renaldo Balkman.
Anthony was not at the
Nuggets' practice as the
team resumed workouts

following the All-Star
break. Billups leftthe team's
Monday practice without
speaking to reporters.
Nuggets coach George
Karl, after learning of the
trade, said:"I'm glad it's
Anthony has been the sub-
ject of trade talks ever
since he declined to sign a
three-year, $65 million ex-
tension with the Nuggets
last summer. His biggest
pursuers were the Knicks
and New Jersey Nets.
What does this mean for
the Miami HEAT? Well,
for starters it means the
HEAT/Knicks rivalry of
old can be renewed with
both teams having such a
star-studded team.

Will New York make a
strong push to win the east
now? I still don't think so.
New York traded their en-
tire team and then some
to land Carmelo. How can
they gel now with only 30
games left is remains to be
seen. It took Miami an en-
tire first half to gel so let's
just wait and see how New
York does it.
Another thing, the Febru-
ary 27 matchup in Miami
versus the Knicks will now
be one of the hottest tickets
in town, so get them while
you can HEAT fans.
I'm excited to finally have
the whole Carmelo Antho-
ny drama solved. Now it's
time for him to get back to
playing basketball.

The Russian Makes His Move: New Jersey

Lands Deron Williams

Just one day after New
Jersey missed out on the
Carmelo Anthony Sweep-
stakes to the New York
Knicks, the New Jersey
Nets quickly regrouped and
have acquired point guard
Deron Williams from the
Utah Jazz.
In the package, New Jersey
will be parting ways with
Devin Harris and Derrick
Favors who will will be
traded to the Jazz, along
with two first round picks.
Utah will also receive New
Jersey's own pick in 2011
and Golden State's in 2012.
New Jersey will send Troy
Murphy to Golden State,

while the Warriors trade
Dan Gadzuric and Brandan
Wright to the Nets.
We've known for months
that New Jersey was try-
ing all they could to land a
legitimate superstar to once
again be in a Nets jersey.
As we all know, the Nets
pursued Carmelo Anthony
for months to no avail.
With no fanfare, no specu-
lation, abrupt and mostly
under the radar, New Jer-
sey was quickly and qui-
etly able to acquire one of
the elite point guards in the
NBA. Williams is eligible
to be a free agent in 2012.
However, Williams is not

eligible to sign an exten-
sion until July, pending the
NBA's new collective bar-
gaining agreement.
Expect a Knicks/Nets ri-
valry to begin from this.
As we all knew, the Knicks
were looking to add Deron
Williams as a free agent or
even still trade for him at
the deadline, but with Wil-
liams now in New Jersey,
things change for the New
York Knicks.
These blockbuster trades
have without a shadow of a
doubt shifted the power of
the NBA from the western
conference to the eastern

Two players that can help NBA team in

the playoff push after a buy-out

By: Steven Rawnsley

2) Richard Hamilton:
Richard Hamilton is a
tough one. How much is
he willing to sacrifice to be
bought out and
go elsewhere. It
would be hard to
convince any team
to take on his con-
tract even if they
just had to give up
an expiring con-
tract (25.3 million
for the next two
seasons after this
season). He has
fallen out of favor
with head coach John Kue-
ster, and Rip has been col-
lecting some DNP-CD's for
about a month. He could de-
mand a trade in the offsea-
son if he is still on the team
heading into the offseason,
but who is going to trade
for his contract? Obviously,
there will be a divorce, the
question is when and how
will it happen.
It is sad that his career
with Detroit has to end like
this. He was thought to be
the heir apparent to Reg-
gie Miller at running the
baseline off of screens. His
number 32 will probably be
hanging in Detroit after he
calls it a career. His contract
extension, along with trad-
ing Billups for Iverson has
killed this franchise that was
so good not too long ago.
He will be a quality backup
for a team that is looking for
some wing depth.
Boston and Chicago are per-
fect matches. Both teams are
interested in Anthony Park-
er right now also. The team
that does not get Parker (if
he is traded to one of them),
could get Hamilton. Both
are backups in Boston, and
both probably replace Keith
Bogans as the starting SG in

Chicago. It could turn out
the team that does not get
Parker at the deadline, will
be better off if Hamilton is
bought out.
11 Trav Mnrnhv:

Troy Murphy is going to
be traded by the deadline
or bought out. I think it is
safe to say Troy Murphy
and Avery Johnson will not
be exchanging Christmas
cards next winter. There is
no way Murphy is in New
Jersey next year as this is
the last year on his contract.
The Nets are just going to
cut ties with him one way or
another. The real questions
are how much is the buyout,

if they cannot trade him, and
who gets him?
Troy Murphy can help ma-
ny teams. Just a year ago,
he was getting 14.6 points
per game 10.2 rebounds and
shot 38.4% from
S three point range.
Teams are always
looking for out-
side shooters, and
- it just comes as a
S bonus that Mur-
phy is also 6'11.
At worst, he is a
S, backup big man
or a zone buster
S(rich man's Matt
Bonner). There
will be a line of
teams contacting him if he is
bought out. My guess is he
goes to Orlando.
Honorable Mentions:
T.J. Ford- He will be bought
out if not traded. A team
looking for a backup PG
will get him. Boston could
grab him.
Taysuan Prince- With Je-
rebko/Daye as the future SF's
there, Prince is probably not
in Detroit next season. Doubt
he gets bought out though.
