Paul Triviabits
By Paul Paquet

When country rocker
Gram Parsons died of a
drug overdose, his hip-
pie friends literally stole
his body from LAX and
tried to cremate it in
Joshua Tree, Calif. The
amateur cremation went
badly, the hippies were
eventually arrested, and
whatever was left of
Parsons was buried in
Louisiana. A cop with a
sense of humor called it
"Gram Theft Parsons,"
which is pretty clever.

Who was supposed to
sing on U2's "Love Res-
cue Me," only to bail for a
Traveling Wilburies tour?
A) Bob Dylan
B) Allen Ginsberg
C) BB King
D) Luciano Pavarotti

Safety Tip

Q. I heard that I should keep a copy of the serial number
of my new flat screen television. Is this true?
A. Yes, in fact you should record the serial number to
all of your electronics, including televisions, DVD play-
ers, game consoles (Wii, PlayStation, etc), computers,
digital cameras, etc. If an item with a serial number is
stolen, police can enter the item's serial number into a
database. If the item is taken to a pawnbroker, the broker
is required by law to submit pawn transaction forms to
the local Sheriff's Office within 24 hours. Police can then
compare stolen items against the pawn transaction data-
base which has resulted in the recovery of thousands of
stolen items.
Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from
the Crime Prevention Unit. For more information, visit

New life may be coming to long-neglected Levitz Plaza

N,, , photo by
Dale M. King

vitz Plaza, a once thriving
shopping center in north
Boca Raton, has been on
the skids for years.
Plans approved in 2006
for a Mizner Park-style
mixed use development
called North Boca Vil-
lage, also containing a new
structure for the Caldwell
Theatre, was crushed by a
falling economy and ended
up in bank foreclosure ear-
lier this year.
But the plaza that's emp-
ty except for a carpet and
tile store is about to get a
new lease on life. The City
Council held two public
hearings on plans for the
Broadstone at North Boca
Village, a complex of 384
residential apartment units
along with the already-

built 29,494 square foot
(333 seat) Caldwell The-
Lengthy discussions at
Planning & Zoning Board
meetings and the two
hearings preceded the City
Council's unanimous and
eager vote of approval in
City Manager Leif Ahn-
ell said in a memo the ap-
plicant, Alliance Residen-
tial Company LLC, will
offer "luxury 'for rent only'
apartment units with mul-
tiple product choices de-
signed in a Spanish Mis-
sion architectural style."
The residential portion,
Ahnell said, "will have a
varied mix of unit/build-
ing types consisting of
townhouses, garden style
apartments and mid rise
apartment buildings. The
units will be in three- and
five-story buildings and

Virtually vacant Levitz Plaza is to be the site of Broadstone at
North Boca Village, a complex of 384 residential apartment
units alhg with the already-built 29,494 square foot Caldwell

will be comprised of one,
two and three bedroom
units ranging from 651
square feet to 1,786 square
The city manager said
the applicant "purports
that the mix of unit types
will appeal to a wide range
of residents." He said the
applicant provided city
staff with a market study
showing "the viability of

the project and the need for
multi-family rental apart-
ments in this area of the
More than a half-dozen
years ago, North Federal
Highway came under city
scrutiny with the appoint-
ment of a Steering Com-
mittee and the creation of
a "charrette," or guide to
development, with resi-
dents' help. North Boca

Village grew out of that
charrette, and was initially
seen as the key project to
revive the highway.
North Boca Village was
to be a mix of residen-
tial (49 townhouses and
336 condominiums), retail
(100,600 square feet), office
(53,990 square feet) and
restaurant (40,000 square
feet) uses, with roads con-
necting the buildings -
much like Mizner Park. It
also included the theater.
The original devel-
oper planned to raze the
plaza after allowing the
Caldwell, formerly located
in that building, to build a
new theater slightly north
of the Levitz site. That
structure was finished in
2007, but North Boca Vil-
lage was never even start-
Attorneys Charlie
Siemon and Wendy Lars-

en presented the plans for
Broadstone. It had to go
through a lengthy permit-
ting process, and the city
had to change the zoning
from mixed use (MU) to
village center (VC).
Plans say recreational
amenities for Broadstone
include a centralized park
area, tot lot, putting green,
pool with cabanas and a
gazebo. There will also
be a two-story clubhouse
(over 7,000 square feet)
slated to contain a fitness
center, game room, club
room, business/conference
rooms and leasing offices.
All access points to the
residential area will be
gated. Broadstone will
not have the network of
streets that North Boca
Village would have had.
The existing driveway
serving Caldwell Theatre
will remain free of a gate.

County teachers' association reaches tentative contract agreement

The Palm Beach County
Classroom Teachers Asso-
ciation has reached a ten-
tative agreement on a new
contract. It must be ratified
by teachers and then ad-
opted by the School Board
before it goes into effect.
Under the tentative
*The teachers' salary
schedule is increased $500
across the board effective
May 1, 2011 and remains
effective throughout the
2011-2012 school year.
*The contract's expira-
tion date is extended from
June 30, 2012 to June 30,
*The flexibility the dis-

trict needs to meet class size
requirements next school
year and in the future is
provided by establishing
several pilot programs that,
unless agreed to otherwise
in the future, will sunset at
the expiration of the con-
tract (June 30, 2014).
*The CTA and the dis-
trict will continue working
to establish a new CTAS
Handbook and to amend
Article II, Section G of
the contract to bring both
documents into compliance
with new state statutes on
teacher evaluation and with
all Florida DOE directives,
rules and regulations relat-
ing to the evaluation of in-

structional employees.
*Administrators re-enter-
ing the classroom will be al-
lowed to have their admin-
istrative experience in the
district count for placement
purposes on the teachers'
salary schedule, minus four
steps because teachers have
not been granted steps for
this number of years.
*A joint study commit-
tee will be established to
make recommendations on
the feasibility and desirabil-
ity of the district to allow
teachers to enroll their age-
appropriate dependent chil-
dren in a school's After Care
Program and/or in the dis-
trict's Pre-K Program for a

reduced fee, or possibly for
free. The target date for a
recommendation is Dec. 16,
"I am thrilled that the
district and CTA were able
to reach tentative agree-
ment during contract ne-
gotiations," said Superin-
tendent Bill Malone. "[The
late association president]
Mr. Dow advocated for a
cooperative approach that
would focus on solutions.
The parties in this negotia-
tion were determined to get
to 'yes.'"
'"Although this agree-
ment is not fully satisfy-
ing to either party, there
was a mutual recognition

of each other's limitations,
and the result honored the
limitations and yet reflected
significant compromise on
both sides," he said."
"We feel that this is the
best financial outcome with
the economic climate we
have at this time," said Dr.
Kathi Gundlach, president
of the Palm Beach County
CTA. "It is a compromise
that addresses the new
teachers getting a larger
percentage increase in sal-
ary, but everyone being able
to benefit no matter where
they are in their career."
"It was also important to
protect all teachers against
a furlough, which would

have been an additional pay
cut. This was a true nego-
tiation in that both parties
were willing to compromise
in order to achieve the best
outcome possible."

gust 1 to cover the cost
of registering their dog's
DNA in the Pet World
Registry database.
Then, if droppings are
found in the public areas
of the condos, the speci-

mens will be collected and
mailed in a plastic tube to
the company's headquar-
ters in Knoxville, Tenn.
If a dog is identified, its
owner could face a fine of
up to $1,000. Those refus-
ing to pay could have a lien
placed on their home.
I fear that this odious,
not to mention odorous,
infringement of Consti-
tutional rights will spread
to HOAs around the Sun-
shine State.
Last time I looked at
our flag, this was still the
United States and we are
still ruled by a Constitu-
tion. (I know, a lot of peo-
ple in Washington would
say, "Constitution i ho ' )
And there are things in
the Constitution like "il-
legal search and seizure"
and "right to privacy." But
I'm not going to give up
my dog's DNA to anybody,
let alone pay $200 bucks to
register it.
That's right. So, if
someone comes hounding
me (sorry, but I had to say
it) about my doggie's DNA,

I will say -- as Charlton
Heston was wont to say
-- "Pry it out of my cold,
dead, fingers."
Actually, my wife had a
very good suggestion. In-
stead of being negative, she
said, communities should
look for a positive solution.
Of course, she did add a bit
of her own humor, saying,
"Well, Florida has a 'three
strikes and you're out' law.
Now it may have a 'three
poops and you're out' law."
I wonder if Abacoa's
doggie poop problem is re-
ally that dire. I think it's a
clear case of overkill. If
you lien enough houses,
you'll put a lot more people
out of their homes. And
that's really not what we
need in this economy. Can
you imagine people stand-
ing on medians holding
signs that say "Homeless
for not picking up dog
And what will happen
to the people who are not
thrown out of their hous-
es. Their association dues
will go up, meaning they

can't buy food, which will
mean they can't go to the
supermarket and get the
plastic bags they use to
pick up dog poop. It may
be a never-ending cycle.
No, liens are not the
answer. I hate to admit it,
friends, but homeowners
DO have a responsibility
to clean up after their dogs.
I do it, and while it's not
a lot of fun, it's a neces-
sity. I live in a very nicely
kept association, and if one
small thing helps keep the
place looking good, it's not
too much trouble.
But associations also
have to pull in their reins.
Fining and putting liens
on property are just going
to anger people. Bring the
problem up at association
meetings. Make homeown-
ers feel like they're actually
playing a part in making
the rules.
Otherwise, I fear, peo-
ple will fight like mad dogs
in an effort to wipe out this
proposal which is simply a
big pile... well, a big pile
of DNA.

Nights with Yaacov and
This past week, you could
have taken in a couple of
events featuring famed Boca
artist and sculptor Yaacov
Heller and singer-songwrit-
er Carol Connors.
Carol hosted a dinner at
the Deer Creek Country
Club in Deerfield Beach
about a week ago. She talked
about her planned July 4 dive
(yes, that's like in SCUBA)
off Key West to pass the
torch - while dressed as the
Statue of Liberty - and wish

the Wounded Warriors well.
(The dinner was also a ben-
efit for the veterans group.)
At the event, Carol was
fresh from her appearance at
the Kennedy Center for the
Performing Arts in Wash-
ington, D.C., where she con-
ducted a 108-piece orches-
tra in the performance of
the theme from the movie,
"Rocky," which Carol co-
A few days later, on July
3, Carol was in Boca, at Yaa-
cov's Gallery 22 to entertain
a crowd along with Brett
Loewenstern, Boca's partici-
pant and finalist in the 2011
season of American Idol.
Operatic singer Margo Joy
was also there.
Yaacov presented Carol
with a portrait of her with
Brett. It was a wonderful
event, and also benefited the
Wounded Warriors.

Nice going, Boca Medical
It's good to see Boca
Medical Supply doing so
well. Whatever they are do-
ing to keep business flourish-

be tried by all others.
Boca Medical Supply has

Most people are famil-
iar with the intimation that
one attracts others more
with honey than with vine-
gar, with sweetness rather
than bitterness. Ancient
wisdom declares that "a
soft answer," is capable to
"turn away wrath" while "a
harsh word stirs up anger"
(Proverbs 15:1).
Many in the human po-
pulation tend to despise
the screams of those who
illustrate, in much of their
behavior unreasonable,
harsh attitudes such as
hatred, contentions, jeal-
ousies, outbursts of wrath,
selfish ambitions, dissen-
sions among a few others.
From such we are to turn
away and remain distant,
unless we are capable of
influencing them positive-
ly to act otherwise!
Indeed, to those whose
posture is arrogant, con-

One of the qualities I
appreciate most in fellow
humans, is that of tender-
ness, in their approach and
relation to others. The dic-
tionary applies this term
variously, but its primary
meaning denotes the quali-
ties of sympathy, compas-
sion, kindness, and consi-
I tend to view this cha-
racteristic in contrast with
a bully, for whom I can of-
fer no applause. Webster
refers to such a creature as
"a blustering browbeating
fellow; one habitually cruel
to others weaker than him-
In human relations, a
bully may frighten some
people, sometime, but will
never gain another's res-
pect nor affection!
History alludes to several
bullies and also describes
their sad end. It praises
more promptly those who
manifest tenderness, for
such are more prone to

frontational, intimidating,
and ever contentious, the
safest attitude is to keep
one's distance!
As T.S. Eliot had cor-
rectly commented, there
are some people to whom
one speaks with difficulty,
and there are others with
whom one speaks in vain.
With a bully, one speaks
both with difficulty and in
vain at the same time.
Unfortunately, such bul-
lies are everywhere. They
are not limited to any ra-ce,
nationality, gender, or class.
They are people always
causing discord where
they go, and adversely dis-
turbing the joy of those
who seek peace with all
humans, and desire to
retain the tender spirit
which they've preferred to
cultivate in life. Such is the
best, healthy antidote pre-
scribed for all peace-loving

Troops to Teachers is
a nationwide program au-

"On average, the vete-

bring into the classroom,"
said Ron Burton, regional
director of the Florida

that the students of veter-

well in reading and slightly

better in mathematics com-

Symphony of the America's 20th Summerlest Music Festival to open

the way from Hungary.
Not only is the Reme-
nyi Ede one of Central
Europe's finest orchestras,
this is its second appear-
ance in the USA as part
of the Symphony of the
Americas' Summerfest mu-
sic festival.
"We wanted to bring
back one of our favorite
European chamber orches-
tras," explains Symphony
of the Americas manager
Renee LaBonte. "Remenyi
Ede is one of Hungary's
finest orchestra, and Lasz-
lo Pap, our principal violin-
ist, is Hungarian, so it is
sort of like a reunion."
This is the 20th anniver-
sary season for SOAs Sum-
merfest. This is no small
feat, as it is a diplomatically
and logistically compli-
cated and quite expensive
undertaking. The festival

began in Remenyi Ede's
home town of Miskolc, in
northern Hungary in May.
The Florida portion of the
festival runs from July 8
through July 28.
In between the Florida
concerts, in locations from
Miami to Vero Beach, the
orchestra will jet off to
Panama for a performance
residency July 10-17. SOA
maestro James Brooks-

Bruzzese is originally
from Panama, and he has
become his country's fore-

After a Florida return,
Summerfest travels for
the first time to the South

for Summerfest is the idea
of cultural exchange," says
LaBonte, who is also the
orchestra's pianist. "This

While we are there and
in Panama we will teach

Passing the Torch of Freedom

Taacov Heller, Carol Connors & Brett Loewenstern

By Halle Moore

International sensation
Oboe soloist, H. David
Meyers who is Executive
Director of the Wounded
Warriors Trust invited
Carol Connors, singer,
songwriter to come to
the Kennedy Center on
Flag Day, June 14th. He
thought it would be fun
to have her conduct the
108-piece symphony or-
chestra that would play
the famous theme song
she wrote for the movie
Just before the William
Tell Overture. Carol came
out in the Rocky Robe and
boxing gloves and nearly
punched conductor Ulyss-
es James taking the baton
from him. After the or-
chestra played the theme
song, Carol sang America
the Beautiful and told the
origin of how the Rocky
theme song was written.
She received a 5-minute
standing ovation.
There were 55 admirals
and generals in the audi-
ence besides the wound-
ed. It was the largest
contingent of Wounded
Warriors ever attending
a concert of this mag-
nitude. Carol Connors

sadly said, "I got to walk
out of the Kennedy Cen-
ter. The wounded had to
be helped."
Direct from her guest
appearance at the Kenne-
dy Center, Carol went to
Key Largo to dive and
rai-se monies to benefit
the Wounded Warriors
Trust. She went down
to 30oft in the water with
Captain Slate of the At-
lantic Dive Center of Key
Largo. After the dive a
group of Carol's friends
and colleagues went to the
Big Chill, a famous res-
taurant/bar on the island
and had lots of fun telling
Rocky stories.
Famous artist Pasqual,
designed a Torch of Free-
dom, which Carol brought
to Yaacov Heller's Gallery
22 in Royal Palm Place in
Boca Raton on July 3rd to
pass to the younger gen-
eration's, Brett Loewen-
stern of American Idol.
Brett accepted the torch
and sang Over the Rain-
Guests enjoyed deli-
cious hors d'oeuvres, wine
and soft drinks. It was a
fun afternoon with Carol,
Brett and Yaacov who
showed his new Celebrity
Portrait Series

Halle Moore graduated from Adelphi University in New Tork.
She writes for publications like Boca Delray Life Publications,
Habilitation Center, and Viewpoint Newspaper of Boca Pointe.

I "The Talk Of The Town" Radio Show

i Tops Boca Raton's Ultimate "It" List!

BOCA RATON - The ea-
gerly-awaited July/August
2011 issue of Boca Raton
Magazine, known each year
as "The Boca 100 Issue",
features "The Talk of The
Town" radio show in the
#1 spot. That's a pretty
amazing accomplishment,
considering the fact that
the show is celebrating its
first anniversary on July
16th and Boca Raton Ma-
gazine, which celebrated its
30th anniversary just last
year, is itself a multi-year
first place winner of nu-
merous awards, including
"Best Overall Magazine."
So just how did "The
Talk of The Town" garner
the coveted #1 spot? Take
one of South Florida's most
popular, long-time radio
personalities... Peter Leon-
ard. Add a savvy marketing
and business development
professional with a sultry
voice.. .Jacqui Wyatt. Mix
with guest celebrities, local
officials, restaurateurs and
more for 2 hours every Sat-
urday and Voila! "The Talk
of The Town!" is bound to
be the result. That's what's
in store for you every Sat-
urday on AM 1230 WBZT
- from 1 to 3pm, when Pe-
ter and Jacqui serve up two
hours of stimulating talk,
broadcasting live from their
beautiful studio at Royal

Palm Place in Boca Ra-
ton. Together, they bring
a sophisticated and caring
environment to life every
weekend - guests from show
business, creative arts, local
politicos, and community
organizations from all as-
pects of life in Boca and the
surrounding areas.
When you listen to them,
it is pretty clear that they
are polar, yet equal, oppo-
sites. "It's the concept of yin
and yang", says Peter, "and
Jacqui is definitely the yin
to my yang." Yin and yang
are bound together (you
cannot have the back of a
hand without the front),
and theirs is a dynamic that
works beautifully on this
show. While Jacqui comes
across as soft, feminine, ca-
ring and intellectual, Peter
is "The Rocker" - fast, hard,
solid, focused, with an off-
beat sense of humor that
sometimes catches people
off guard.
The roster of show guests
has included musicians such
as Marc Antoine (has played
for Sting, Celine Dion,
Rod Stewart, Cher, Selena,
Queen Latifah, George
Benson and others), Jeff
Kashiwa (one of the most
diverse, in demand sax play-
ers in contemporary jazz),
Matt Marshak (has shared
the stage with artists such

as Spyro Gyra, Richard
Bona, Dave Koz, Eric Benet,
Earl Klugh, Stanley Jordan,
Nick Colionne among other
greats), saxophonist Paul
"Shilts" Weimar, electrify-
ing guitarist Nate Najar,
world-renowned keyboar-
dist Brian Simpson (who
has also been the musical
director for Dave Koz for
over 10 years), thrilling
saxophonists Will Dona-
to, Marcus Anderson and
Steve Cole, Yaacov Heller
(world-renowned sculp-
tor and artist), Oleda Bak-
er (famed model/author/
artist), Dennis Lambert
(12-time Grammy award
nominee), David Pearlman
(world-renowned photog-
rapher), Patrizia Rondelli
(Italian fashion designer
extraordinaire), Dr. Braze-
lia Lazzari, Diego Rimoch
(founder of FAU's Liv-
ing Room Theater), Troy
McLellan (Boca Raton
Chamber of Commerce),
Dan Guin (Boca Ballet The-
atre), James Gavrilos (Boca
Helping Hands), Andrew
Scott (People Reaching Out
to Provide Education and
Leadership) - and lots more.
Regular segments in-
clude "Fabulous Food &
Wine Pairings", "The In-
side Scoop with Skip" (Skip
Sheffield on the arts and
entertainment) and "'Adopt-
able Pets of the Week" (fea-
turing adoptable pets from
TriCounty Humane Soci-
ety, a "no-kill" shelter).
"The Talk of The Town"
hit the airwaves in style in
2010, actually became the
"talk" of the town and can
now take pride in the fact
that it is #1 on Boca Ra-
ton's Ultimate "It" List.

'larry Crowne' an upbeat adult romance

Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in "Larry Crowne."

Finally, a good adult ro-
mantic comedy in the silly
summer season of 2011.
"Larry Crowne" is Tom
Hanks, baby, and he has
done himself proud.
Hanks produced, co-wro-
te (with "My Big Fat Greek
Wedding's" Nia Vardalos),
directed and stars (with his
friend Julia Roberts) in this
timely tale of survival in
tough economic times.
Larry Crowne (Hanks)
is a hard-working employ-
ee at a big-box discount
retailer called U-Mart. As
the story opens Larry is
being called into the boss's
office. He smugly as-
sumes he getting another
Employee of the Month
award (his ninth), but no.
Larry is being laid off Be-
cause he has no college ed-
ucation, Crowne is deemed
Losing his job is just the
latest in a bad luck streak.
First his marriage crum-
bled, then Larry chose to
buy out his ex-wife when
the real estate market was
at its peak. Now he is "up-
side down," with a larger
mortgage than his house is

Instead of going to col-
lege, Larry enlisted in the
US Navy and spent 20
years as a cook. With not
much else to lose, he de-
cides to enroll at East Val-
ley Community College.
The leering Dean of
Students encourages
Larry to enroll in Speech
217, because the teacher is
"something special." As a
more practical choice, Lar-
ry also enrolls in Econ 1.
Speech 217 is taught by
the beautiful but bitter Ms.
Tainot (Julia Roberts).
"Care" Ms. Tainot writes
on the chalkboard, because
she thinks no one does.
She even tries to cancel
the 8 a.m. class when the
required 10 students fail to
show up. At the last min-
ute, in comes Larry.

as upbeat as Ms. Tainot is

but it is a life-affirming
one. Sure there are a lot of
people worse off than Lar-
ry Crowne, but this movie

even if it is just as a short-
order cook, just maybe
things may get better. I'll

pole and give it a salute.

The Atlantic basin is
expected to see an above-
normal hurricane season
this year, according to the
seasonal outlook issued by
NOAA's Climate Prediction
Center - a division of the
National Weather Service.
Across the entire Atlan-
tic Basin for the six-month
season, which began June 1,
NOAA is predicting the fol-
lowing ranges this year:
12 to 18 named storms
(winds of 39 mph or higher),
of which:
6 to 10 could become hur-
ricanes (winds of 74 mph
or higher), including 3 to 6
major hurricanes (Category
3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph
or higher)
Each of these ranges has
a 70 percent likelihood, and
indicate that activity will ex-
ceed the seasonal average of
11 named storms, six hur-
ricanes and two major hur-
"The United States was
fortunate last year. Winds
steered most of the season's
tropical storms and all hur-
ricanes away from our coast-
lines," said Jane Lubchenco,
Ph.D., under secretary of
commerce for oceans and
atmosphere and NOAA ad-
"However we can't count
on luck to get us through
this season. We need to be
prepared, especially with
this above-normal outlook."
Climate factors considered
for this outlook are:
The continuing high ac-

these storms may hit. Land-
fall is dictated by weather
patterns in place at the time
the storm approaches. For
each storm, NOAA's Na-
tional Hurricane Center
forecasts how these weather
patterns affect the storm
track, intensity and landfall
"The tornadoes that dev-
astated the South and the
large amount of flooding
we've seen this spring should
serve as a reminder that di-
sasters can happen anytime
and anywhere. As we move
into this hurricane season
it's important to remember
that FEMA is just part of
an emergency management
team that includes the en-
tire federal family, state, lo-
cal and tribal governments,
the private sector and most
importantly the public," said
FEMA Administrator Craig
"Now is the time, if you
haven't already, to get your
plan together for what you
and your family would do if
disaster strikes. Visit ready.
gov to learn more. And
if you're a small business
owner, visit
business to ensure that your
business is prepared for a di-
saster," added Fugate.

NOAA expects 'above normal

hurricane season' in Atlantic basin

tropical multi-decadal sig-
nal has brought ocean and
atmospheric conditions con-
ducive for development in
sync, leading to more active
Atlantic hurricane seasons.

La Nifia, which continues
to weaken in the equatorial
Pacific Ocean, is expected to
dissipate later this month or
in June, but its impacts such
as reduced wind shear are
expected to continue into
the hurricane season.
"In addition to multiple
climate factors, seasonal cli-
mate models also indicate
an above-normal season is
likely, and even suggest we
could see activity compa-
rable to some of the active
seasons since 1995," said

Now, what is your first

have to decide which ar-

important to you that the
house is near your work
place? Are you going to
be concerned about the
school district? Is it im-
portant how convenient to
shopping you are? It might
be important to you to be
near a tennis club, golf
club or fitness facility. You
have to decide what is im-

You have the areas nar-

be best to select an agent.

be to talk to your friends.
Ask about their experi-

or buying their properties.
If it is a lukewarm recom-

are looking for enthusias-

asking until you have a few
possibilities. Then you can
interview the candidates.
Have questions prepared
ahead of time. It may be

The J90to taton Tribune

By Gerald J Sherman

Do You Have a Marketing Plan?

After I recently comple-
ted a survey for an interna-
tional network, I decided
to re-address the subject
of a marketing plan. The
questionnaire was sent to
many college graduates
who majored in Business
Administration. The ques-
tion we asked was, "What
are the things they ne-
ver taught you in college
about being successful in
business?" The response
concerned itself with the
fact that they didn't learn
enough about people skills,
relationship building and
running a business. Most
of the responses I received
indicated that they were
never taught how to write
or understand a market-
ing plan. Whether they
worked for a company or
planned to go into their
own business, writing and
understanding the market-
ing plan is essential.
The marketing plan is
an integral part of the
company's strategic plan.
It is the guide to the organi-

zation's directions and ob-
jectives and is instrumental
in planning a course of ac-
tion to accomplish these
objectives. The plan can
be compared to a road map
that indicates the various
routes to take to reach a
destination. Small and big
businesses will find the
trip easier, safer and faster
to reach their goals with
this "road map."
Don't minimize the im-
portance of this plan. It's
considered necessary to
acquire financing, keep
the business focused on its
direction, provide a mea-
surement and evaluation
of the organization's pro-
gress and provide guidance
to employees in helping
them reach their goals.
Before you write a plan
or revise your existing
plan, ask yourself the fol-
lowing questions:

1. Who is your target
market? Define the demo-
graphics which are a set
of characteristics of a cer-

tain group that describes
its background, economic
status, education and oth-
er social factors. Define
the psychographics which
is a set of characteristics
of a certain group that
describes the behavioral
and psychological struc-
ture, (Sherman & Perlman,

2. Is there or can you
create a want or need for
your service or product?

3. What is the message
you should send to this
target market to get a re-

4. What is the best way
of reaching your target
market? Can it be online,
events, mailers, TV or ra-
dio or a combination of
some of them?
Answers to all of the
above should be taken into
account and periodically
updated in the marketing
plan which will consist of
customer analysis, busi-

ness concept, description
of the service or product,
company structure, market
summary, competitive ac-
tivities, sales and market-
ing analysis, financial plan,
goals and objectives. You
can look at the marketing
plan as a barometer of the
activities and determine
the status of your com-
pany as it relates to your

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

Richard DiMeola addresses the Rotary Club of Boca Raton

ironic, Richard DiMeola
recently told the Rotary
Club of Boca Raton, that
at the Winston Churchill
Museum, the ever-present
cigar he smoked has been
airbrushed out of the por-
trait at the entryway.
DiMeola, who spent
years in the cigar trade
and, in retirement now,
continues to create his own
brand, offered Rotarians a
light journey through the
industry that has had its
ups and downs - from the
embargo against Cuban
imports through the anti-
tobacco era to the current
upsurge in interest in the
famed "sticks."
He peppered his disser-
tation with quotes from
and about celebrities fa-
mous for their association
with cigars, in particular,
Winston Churchill.
DiMeola, husband of
health guru and Boca

Raton Tribune columnist
Oleda Baker, who was
present at the meeting,
said he was working for
an importer of cigars at
the time of the embargo
that followed the Cuban
missile crisis of 1962.
He offered a quip about
President John F. Ken-
nedy, an inveterate cigar
smoker. DiMeola said the
president asked his press
secretary, Pierre Salinger,
to get him 1,200 Cuban
cigars. When the deed
was done and Salinger
brought him the large
quantity of cigars, Kenne-
dy pulled out the embargo
documents and signed
Comedian George Burns
was never without his ci-
gar - or a good quip. "He
used to smoke El Pro-
ducto," said DiMeola. "We
used to deliver boxes to
his house."
Another funny man as-

sociated with cigars was
Groucho Marx. DiMe-
ola recalled that on his
show, "You Bet Your Life,"
Groucho was speaking to
a man who said he had 17
children. When Groucho
asked why, the man said,
"I love my wife." To which
Groucho answered, "Well
I love my cigar, but I
take it out every now and
While Churchill was
best known for his cigar
smoking, DiMeola said he
was also known to drink
a bit. He recalled an ex-
change between Churchill
and Lady Astor, the first
female Member of Par-
liament. During a meet-
ing, she said to Churchill,
"You're drunk." And
Churchill answered, 'And
you're ugly. But I will be
sober in the morning."
Another bit of acrimo-
ny surfaced when Lady
Astor said to Churchill,
"If I found out I was mar-
ried to you, I'd put poison
in your tea." Churchill re-
sponded: "If I knew I was
married to you, I'd drink
Mark Twain offered
what DiMeola called "most
interesting" comments a-
bout cigars. Twain once
said, "I have a rule never
to smoke more than one at
a time."
DiMeola also walked the

crowd through the pro-
duction of cigars, discus-
sing the cheaper brands
made with stems and cut
leaves, and the more ex-
pensive ones created from
rolled, full leaves. "They
are vastly different than
the mass-produced ones,"
he said.
He also noted that ci-
gars "are not a cigarette
substitute." Cigar smokers
don't inhale the smoke and
they smoke only a few a
With the embargo in
effect for nearly 50 years,
the Dominican Republic
has become the largest
maker of cigars in the
world, followed by Nica-
ragua and then Cuba.
His own brand is called
DiMeola, and is available

the world's most famous
cigar smokers

The J0cta raton Tribune

By Pr. Sandy Huntsman

"Science and Scriptures"

Communication is exhau-
sting work and therefore
misunderstandings and mis-
communications abound.
This is never more evident
than when people try to
communicate cross-cultural-
ly. When Kentucky Fried
Chicken entered the Chi-
nese market, to their horror
they discovered that their
slogan "finger licking' good"
came out as "eat your fingers
off." General Motors had a
perplexing problem when
they introduced the Chevy
Nova in South America. De-
spite their best efforts, they
weren't selling many cars.
They finally realized that in
Spanish, "nova" means "it
won't go". Sales improved
dramatically after the car was
renamed the "Caribe." When
Pepsi entered the Chinese
market a few years later, the
translation of their slogan
"Pepsi Brings You Back To
Life" was a little more lit-
eral than they intended. In
Chinese, the slogan meant,
"Pepsi Brings Your Ances-
tors Back From The Grave."
There has been and con-
tinues to be a history of
conflict between science and
Scriptures. Some claim that
the history of Bible-science
interaction is largely a war,
with theology constantly los-
ing. But like the aforemen-
tioned example, too often
the conflict is not real but
the result of presupposi-
tions, poor communication
and ill-defined terms. When
the terms are clearly defined,

the fields of study properly
understood, and all parties
concerned willing to seek the
truth, the conflict dissipates.
It is very important to under-
stand several key issues.
1. Science and Scriptures
are primarily two different
fields of study. Debates about
angels or biblical atonement
have little to do with organic
chemistry. Similarly, whether
a methane molecule has three
or four hydrogen atoms in it
does not negate the truthful-
ness of Scripture. The vast
majority of biblical teachings
and scientific claims have lit-
tle to do with each other di-
i i.., d. and it is wrong to give
the impression that most of
the issues from these two
sources support or conflict
with each other.
2. Science must be true sci-
ence, and Scripture must be
properly interpreted and ap-
plied. The Bible is not a sci-
ence book, but when it speaks
on matters of science (not
scientism) it is scientifically
accurate. Real observable,
testable science does not con-
flict with Scripture. Claims in
chemistry that water comes
from combining hydrogen
and oxygen are complemen-
tary to the theological claims
that God providentially cre-
ated water. R. N. Williams
said, '"A great difference ex-
ists between science and what
may be called scientism, by
which we mean the theories
of a scientist who is wearing
spectacles with philosophi-
cally-tinted lenses."

3. Both Science and Scrip-
ture involve worldviews. All
of us bring a bias or perspec-
tive to any study. Finding a
fossil is science... investigat-
ing it is science. Telling me
how it got there or how it
fits into the scheme of hu-
manity or the universe is ei-
ther philosophy or religion.
It cannot not be observed or
repeated which is required by
the scientific method. When
we consider for example, the
origin of the universe, cre-
ation and evolution are two
different religions or philoso-
phies studying scientific data.
We see what is here. We can
theorize how it got there, but
nobody alive today was there.
As we will discover over
the next few weeks there are
numerous scientific discover-
ies that support the biblical
* evidence the universe had
a beginning
* evidence that the universe
is complex and delicately de-
* evidence that there is no
natural mechanism to ex-
plain this complexity and the
origin of life
* evidence of advanced sci-
entific and medical knowl-
* evidence that living things
are irreducibly complex
* numerous archaeological
confirmations affirming the
historical and geographical
accuracy of Scripture
* precise prophetic state-
ments implying advanced
knowledge and divine origin.

Dealing with combat disability


Question: My husband, a
nurse, and I were separated
in 2008, after a 20-year
marriage. A month later his
National Guard Unit was
sent to Iraq. I had not worked
in many years, during which
time I raised the children and
took care of the home. I have
now gone back to work in re-
tail but do not make enough
money to keep the household
going myself Our son is a
senior in high school and my
daughter is just a freshman.
While in Iraq, my husband
was injured in afirefight and
lost a leg. As soon as he got
home he filed a divorce case,
although I had suggested a
try at reconciliation. Neither
of us have lawyers. We are
trying to settle, and are argu-
ing over whether or not I am
entitled to alimony, and the
proper amount for child sup-
In addition to his disabil-
ity pay he receives Social Se-
curity and several thousand
dollars a month from a trust
fund that his parents have just
set up for him. In determining

alimony and child support
what income, or assets, can
the Florida courts consider?

Answer: Under ordi-
nary circumstances, the
Florida courts consider all
forms of income available
to either party for either
alimony or child support
purposes. Social Security
benefits would be counted
as ordinary income. How-
ever, federal law prohibits
the division of veteran's
combat disability benefits
for alimony or child sup-
port purposes, except un-
der very narrow circum-
stances (Check the web site
for the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Ser-
vices/ Administration for
Children & Families). The
Florida courts have held
that the federal law pre-
empts the state law.
Income from a trust, on
the other hand, can clear-
ly be considered for both
alimony and child support
purposes; even if the trust
was not set up until after

the divorce petition was
filed. However, a trust can
be revocable or irrevocable.
If your husband and
his parents wanted to try
to defeat your claim, they
might revoke the trust. If
they later set up a regular
gifting program to funnel
money to your husband,
that too can be counted as
income for alimony and
child support purposes if a
court finds that it is a regu-
lar source of support
The money that was set
aside in the trust to pro-
duce the income is not di-
visible as a marital asset,
whether set aside before
or after the divorce peti-
tion was filed. However, if
your legitimate needs, and
those of your children, ex-
ceed the amount that your
husband can pay from the
his income, a Florida court
can, under limited circum-
stances, invade the money
invested in the trust for
support payments.

Chulo is a housebroken, playful dog

who's seeking a home

"Chulo" is a 5-year old,
neutered male, American
pit bull terrier. He was a-
bandoned at Animal Care
& Control one evening
and sadly no one came for
him. He is a wonderful
dog who is housebroken,
playful, and very well
mannered. Chulo is ex-
tremely smart, knows sev-
eral commands, and knows
how to 'shake' with both of
his paws. His adoption fee
is only $40. please refer-
ence animal ID#1231063.
He is available at Palm
Beach County Animal Ca-
re and Control, 7100 Bel-
vedere Road, West Palm
Beach. All animals are a-
dopted to qualified appli-
cants on a first-come-first-
serve basis.
Adopted dogs and cats
come with a health care
certificate, which must be
used within seven days. It
offers a free exam from one
of the local participating

veterinarians and includes
health care if the animal
becomes sick with a shel-
ter related illness within
the first seven days of the
adoption. The certificate is
restricted and must be used
by the adopter immediately.
Pet adoptions are not
handled by phone. Inter-
ested parties must visit the
shelter to view and inter-

act with the adoptable pets
before making a final deci-
sion about adoption.
For information, call the
adoption office at (561)
233-1272 during business
hours, M-F 11 a.m. to 6
p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5

Strikers Seven Game Unbeaten Streak Ends

The Fort Lauderdale Strik-
ers (3-8-3) had their seven
game unbeaten streak
snapped by FC Tampa Bay
(4-5-5) with a 4-2 loss at
Al Lang Stadium on July
4. After an evenly played
first half, FC Tampa Bay
scored three second half
goals against the NASL
leader in goals against av-
erage (GAA) Matt Glaeser.
The player of the game for
FC Tampa Bay was Pascal
Million with a goal and two
assists in a game which saw
a total of six goals scored.
The win puts FC Tampa
Bay in a tie with the Strik-
ers for fifth place in the
NASL standings.
"We got the (first) goal
back and got into halftime,"
said head coach Daryl
Shore. "To win a game you
have to earn it and we gave
the game away by allowing
four goals."
The early action of the
game was dominated by
FC Tampa Bay. In the 15th
minute, on their third cor-
ner kick, FC Tampa Bay's
Pascal Millien sent a high

ball toward the center of
the area and defender An-
dres Arango headed it past
Strikers goalkeeper Matt
Glaeser for his first goal of
the season.
The game was suspended
in minute 31 due to light-
ning in the area and play
resumed after a 59 minute
When the game was re-
started, the Strikers wasted
no time as David Santama-
ria's shot in the 35th min-
ute had to be saved by FC
Tampa Bay's Jeff Attinella.
In the 37th minute, an
FC Tampa Bay handball in
the penalty area by Kwame
Watson-Siriboe was called
and the Strikers were
awarded a penalty kick.
Fort Lauderdale's Eduardo
Coudet stepped to the pen-
alty spot and shot low and
left to score his sixth goal
of the season and tie the
game at 1-1.
The second half's first
goal came at the 55 min-
ute mark when FC Tampa
Bay's Pascal Millien took
a pass from Tsuyoshi Yo-
shitake and slotted home a

I U S.
left-footed shot past Glae-
ser to put Tampa Bay up
A minute later the Strik-
ers had two chances to
equalize when Abe Thomp-
son's point blank shot was
saved by Attinella. Then
on the ensuing corner kick,
the Strikers Cristian Ar-
rieta connected on a header
that bounced off the post
and was cleared by FC
Tampa Bay.
FC Tampa Bay threat-
ened to put the game out of
reach when Pascal Millien
drove in on net and con-
nected with Aaron King for
Tampa Bay's third goal in
the 63rd minute.
Just five minutes later in

the 68th minute, the Strik-
ers Eduardo Coudet found
a streaking Mike Palacio
who dribbled past two
Tampa Bay defenders and
scored from just outside
the 18-yard-box to make
the score 3-2 and bring the
Strikers to within a goal.
In the 71st minute, on
an initial pass from Pascal
Million, FC Tampa Bay's
Aaron King found Mike
Ambersley who scored
Tampa Bay's fourth goal of
the night and his seventh
of the year.
The Strikers are now tied
with FC Tampa Bay at 17
points on the season and
are tied for fifth place in the
NASL standings.

Boca Raton bringing together COBRAs and PANTHERs

BOCA RATON - It may seem quite unusual to match up
a "Cobra" and a "Panther." But that is about to take place
in Boca Raton!
The Boca Raton Athletics Department has planned a
special event for Saturday, July 16, from 5-8 p.m. at San-
born Square in downtown Boca to acquaint the public
with its new sports program, - COBRA.
The department has partnered with the Florida Pan-
thers for this special family event as part of the Florida
Panthers Blueprint Parks "We See Red" tour.
Along with COBRA information and activities shared
by city athletic staff, the Panthers Patrol will bring along
their inflatables, interactive games, Panther face painters,
live music, giveaways and other activities to complete a
"sports-fun" experience.
Special appearances by the Panthers Ice Dancers, Stan-

ley C. Panther and other Panthers personalities will add to
the event's activities.
The new city-operated program - COBRA - has been
organized by the entire staff of the Athletics Department,
all of whom are certified youth sports administrators, to
take on the responsibility of teaching and coaching youth
teams in several sports. The branded name, COBRA, rep-
resents the City Of Boca Raton Athletics, distinguishing
its programs from non-city-operated sports programs.
The event in Boca's Sanborn Square is just one of four
"We See Red" summer park tours by the Florida Panthers.
It is open to the public and offers free entrance, with op-
tional food purchases.
For additional information, call (561) 393-7827 or visit, or wwwfloridapanthers.

FAU Baseball Pitcher Ahmed Garcia

Becomes United States Citizen

Florida Atlantic Univer-
sity baseball player Ahmed
Garcia has realized a per-
sonal goal by becoming
a citizen of the United
States. The Cuban native
recently completed the cit-
izenship test and took the
loyalty oath.
Garcia, a junior left-han-
ded pitcher, fled to Mia-
mi with his parents, two
brothers and grandmother
when he was 10 years old.
He graduated from South

Miami High School.
"I started playing base-
ball as soon as I got here,"
Garcia told for
a story published earlier
this year. "Baseball was the
key to my success. I didn't
need to speak English to
play baseball. It's like math
... it's the same in America
or Cuba or China or Japan.
It was like a bridge that
helped me adapt to this
Garcia ranked second on

the team with 22 appear-
ances during the 2010-11
season - all coming as a
relief pitcher. He compiled
a 1-2 record, had a 3.92
earned run average and
tallied 16 strikeouts com-
pared to six walks in 41.1
FAU tied for fourth place
in the Sun Belt Conference
this season with a 17-13
league mark and 32-25
overall record.

Jones will


a Free

By Matt Blue

According to reports
Miami HEAT guard-
forward James Jones has
informed the HEAT or-
ganization that he will
not exercise his player
option. James Jones will
be free to sign with any
team as soon as a new
CBA deal is negotiated.
Jones who has played
three seasons with the
Miami HEAT, would ha-
ve been paid 1.4 million
for next season.
Jones is an eight year
veteran who has avera-
ged 6.3 points per game
in his career. Last sea-
son, Jones averaged 5.9
points in 81 games and
he shot 43 percent from
beyond the arc during
his 2011 campaign with
the HEAT.
James Jones was a
valued member of the
Miami HEAT last sea-
son. He was a reliable
shooter off the bench
and he took full advan-
tage of his playing time.
If Jones makes the de-
cision to leave South
Beach, he will surely be
missed by the Miami
HEAT family.

Simple Ways to Groove Your Stroke

By: Larry Denton

Nowhere are the con-
tradictions more apparent
than on the green, where a
simple task -pushing a ball
into a hole in the ground-
is loaded with tension and
anxiety. Golfers have at-
tempted everything from
expert instruction to hyp-
nosis trying to make every
putt on the green. Relax,
even the pros can't do that.
Rather than making the
occasional monster 35 foot
putt, your goal should be
to master a few techniques
that will enable you to
sink those most important
putts - those pesky 3 to
10 footers - with greater
confidence and much more
Three primary skills
need to be mastered in or-
der to become a proficient
putter. First, keep you
head down! Seeing the ball
at impact is a simple idea,
but it is too often over-
ridden by the excitement
of wanting to see where
your ball is going. Lifting
your head, even slightly,

to watch the path of your
ball before it has been
struck can mean a change
in the angle of your put-
ter head, which often re-
sults in a line significantly
off target, even for short
putts. Just as important as
keeping your head down is
keeping it still.
A second major skill is to
learn to visualize. Amateur
golfers typically read their
putts by examining only
the immediate path from
the ball to the hole. In fact,
you should scan as broad
a perspective as possible
when assessing a putt. Try
to develop a mental picture
of the entire green - where
the high side is located, the
severity of the tilt, and
a general idea of speed,
break and ball path.
Once you have evalu-
ated the entire green, nar-
row your focus to the area
where you'll be putting.
Visualize how you think
the ball is going to track.
Imagine its precise path
directly into the hole. By
starting with the big pic-
ture and then narrowing it

to a more manageable size,
you take control.
Finally, think distance,
not speed! While the ul-
timate objective of get-
ting your ball in the hole
doesn't change, a subtle
shift in approach - empha-
sizing distance, not speed
- can bring major improve-
ment in your overall put-
ting ability. Distance con-
trol comes primarily from
the symmetry of your
The ideal putting stroke
moves as far backward as
it does forward, with both
parts of the stroke in equal
temp. This even rhythm
can be achieved through
a combination of diligent
practice and the real un-
derstanding that the put-
ter, not you, is responsible
for doing the work.
By keeping your head
down and still, visualizing
from broad to narrow be-
fore you putt and concen-
trate on distance rather
than speed, you'll start
making putts that you for-
merly missed.
