Boca, FAU police combine forces to train for active shooter events BOCA RATON Officers from the Boca Raton Police Services Department and the Florida Atlantic University Police Department have been training together since April in preparation for an event the both Departments hope will never occur. The training involves campus active shooter scenarios and ended Monday, July 11. The training exercises enable the Boca Raton Police and FAU Police to familiarize themselves with each other and the scenarios also give Boca Raton officers a better understanding of the layout of the campus. A real-life active shooter event is not a good time for officers to get acquainted with each other and figure out how to attack a problem. It is extremely important that we learn and share common tactics for these dynamic events. said Boca Raton Police Chief Dan Alexander. This innovative training exercise highlights the excellent working relationship between the two departments and the quality of both training staffs. The Boca Raton Police Department is a crucial partner in any response to an active shooter situation at Florida Atlantic University, said FAU Chief Charles Lowe. Integrating FAUPD officers into this valuable training assures that police officers from both departments will have an increased level of confidence in a joint response scenario. BRPD has proven to be gracious partners and have not hesitated to provide vital assistance to the university, Lowe said. FAUPD is grateful to be able to contribute to and participate in this professional training with our community partners.

Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -Two Virginia brothers who called themselves professional auto body repair specialists are behind bars after scamming several people into thinking the pair was doing legitimate work. Local police arrested Blue Marks, 22, and James Marks, 25, both of Alexandria and charged them with organized scheme to defraud. Public Information Manager Mark Economou said the scamming started in January when the Marks brothers alleg edly approached a 71 year old woman and offered to repair damage to a white Mercedes in her driveway. After consulting with her husband, she agreed to let the two men make the repairs for $750. No written estimate or receipt was given. Two days later, the couples house was burglarized. During the investigation, the couple told Palm Beach School District ranked A for seventh straight yearPhony auto body workers arrested in Boca Raton police about the two men who had offered to repair the car. Boca Raton detectives then went to the bank where the check was cashed and were able to obtain one of the Virginia drivers license numbers used to cash the check. While talking to neighbors, police learned that another person let the men work on his two cars. The three cars were taken to a licensed auto body shop for evaluation which determined none of the work done on the cars was up to acceptable standards. In early February, investigators received a call that the two men were back in the area doing another repair. Boca Raton Detective Ron Mello questioned the individuals who said they were not licensed to do auto body repairs in Florida as required by law. They added that they owned an auto body shop in Virginia. During the investiga tion, police said, it was also determined that Blue Marks had numerous charges against him in Fairfax County, Virginia for soliciting body repair work without a license. School accountability reports recently released by the Florida Department of Educa tion (FDOE) show the School District of Palm Beach County maintained an A rating for the seventh consecutive year. It was the only large urban district in Florida to achieve this distinction. FDOE, on June 30, released the school ac countability reports on Floridas A+ Plan school grades and federal No Child Left Behind adequate yearly progress (AYP) results. These data reflect the raising of the bar for school grades and AYP. This year, student performance was based on the more rigorous Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, which are measured by the FCAT 2.0. The student writing proficiency standard for school grades increased to a four on a six-point scale. The AYP school wide proficiency target increased from 72% to 79% in reading and 74% to 80% in mathematics. A review of the FY2011 school grade and AYP file released by the FDOE revealed the following: FY2011 School Grades From FY2010 to FY2011, the percent of A-rated schools increased three percentage points (63% to 66%), and the percent of A-rated or B-rated schools exceeded 80%. In FY2011, the district outperformed Florida in the percent of A-rated elementary schools by three percentage points (61% and 58%, respectively) and A-rated middle schools by 19 percentage points (78% and 59% respectively). From FY2010 to FY2011, one school improved its rating from F to A (Pleasant City Elementary School) and six schools improved their rating from C to A. In FY2011, the district had no F-rated elementary or middle schools, and only one school, a combination school (Joseph LittlesNguzo Saba), was F-rated. FY2011 AYP From FY2010 to FY2011, the percentage of district schools making AYP decreased six percentage points (14% to 8%), while Florida decreased four percentage points (14% to 10%). It is noteworthy that the district had eight schools that made AYP in FY2011, but did not make it in FY2010. Tables of school grades and AYP are available on the district web site at: www.palmbeachschools.org/dre/SCH GRADES.asp. The state version of the 2010-2011 School Accountability Reports is located at www:schoolgrades. fldoe.org. If you have questions about school grades and AYP results, contact Marc Baron, Chief, Performance Accountability, at 434-8851. If you have questions about instruction as they relate to school grades and AYP, contact Constance Tuman-Rugg, assistant superintendent, Division of Curriculum, at 3571113. Blue Marks James Marks

Commissioner Abrams presents $5,000 to Highland BeachMUNICIPAL NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL BOCA RATON Just days after Casey Anthony was acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, State Rep Bill Hager (R-Boca Raton) announced that he has drafted legislation to be entitled Caylees Law. The bill would make it a felony in the state of Florida for a parent or legal guardian to fail to timely report a missing child, in instances where the parent knew or should have known that the child was in likely danger. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Hager said, an estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year. That equates to about 2,000 missing children per day. Thankfully, the vast ma jority of these children are found safely and returned to their families, he said. Law enforcement officials agree that the hours immediately following a childs disappearance are critical to their investigation. A joint study by the Washington Attorney General and the U.S. Department of Justice found that 76 percent of abducted children who are murdered are dead within three hours of the abduction. What we witnessed in the case of 2-year old Caylee Anthony was truly tragic, Hager said. Placing a law on the books requir-Hager les Caylee Law bill to make failure to timely report missing child a felony Caylee AnthonyBOCA RATON A resident of Pointe Alexis Drive caught two teens in her garage trying to steal beer out of the refrigerator. When the teens took off, the resident called police. Within minutes the Boca Raton Police Tac tical Team found the two. Once in custody, the two confessed to entering multiple garages of homes in the area.

Vehicles will detour to Palmetto Park Road and cross the Intracoastal using that bridge. Officials say the closing is needed to replace a 15-foot section of concrete sidewalk above the east ma chinery room. Okeechobee closing At Parker Avenue For the next month or so, Camino Bridge over Intracoastal closing for repairsdrivers coming into downtown West Palm Beach will have to find a route other than heavily traveled Okeechobee Boulevard. Since July 11, Okeechobee Boulevard has been closed at the railroad tracks located on the west side of the Tamarind/Parker avenues intersection. Palm Beach County engineering road crews are installing a second leftturn lane onto northbound Tamarind Avenue, which will require repositioning the crossing gates. Crews are also adding a westbound throughlane on the north side of Okeechobee Boulevard west to the Australian Avenue entrance ramp. This work will require temporarily closing the southern access into the Marriott West Palm Beach Hotel. Hotel visitors are to use the north entrance, Clearwater Park Road. Okeechobee Boulevard 16-year-old boys admitted they were entering open garages in Paradise Palms and Fairfield Gardens to steal beer from refrigera tors. They had a large bag with more than two dozen beers that they claim they were going to sell to make money. In all, the pair admitted to breaking into more than four homes in the area. As a result, both were charged with three counts of burglary to an occupied structure and possession of alcohol by a person under 21. ing parents and guardians to report missing children who are in significant danger in a timely manner will ensure that parents are held accountable for their ac tions. It will also assure that we put justice on the side of those among us who are most vulnerable. And finally, it will put an end to the kind of irresponsible and outra geous behavior we observed with Caylees mother. Investigators said Casey Anthony did not report her child missing for some 31 days. And after that, she said the child had been abducted by a nanny. The little girls remains were found in woods near the Anthony home in December 2008, nearly six months after her disappearance. The prosecution in the just-finished case said it was difficult to produce evidence because Caylees body was little more than a skeleton. is expected to reopen to traffic at the railroad tracks by August 15. During this period, eastbound traffic on Okeechobee Blvd. will be diverted at Australian Avenue north to Banyan Boulevard and south to Belvedere Road. Westbound traffic on Okeechobee will be detoured at Tamarind/ Parker avenues. Bill Hager HIGHLAND BEACH July 5th, County Commissioner Steven L. Abrams presented the town of Highland Beach with $5,000 for maintenance/ improvements (including tree planting) to the countyowned property along State Road A1A in the town. The property was purchased by the county in 1987 with the intent of creating a public park. As a result of numerous challenges over the years, the county and town have agreed to delay the project until 2020. The funds for these improvements were obtained from impact fees to developers for new construction in the South County area.

C.M.0 EDITORIALS/LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FLThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 By Dale KingEditorial Managing Editor Associate Editor Letters to the EditorFor 40 days and 40 nights, it rained words in the Orlando Courthouse as 12 citizens gathered to judge Casey Anthonys guilt or innocence in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. So many nasty words were said: Fantasy forensics, that laughing guy over there, the smell of death, hair banding and the skull fell out of the bag. So much acrimony, too. When the trial was over, and the ear-piercing blare of the not guilty verdict subsided, one thing was very clear to me. That poor kid in the courtroom who gave Ashton the finger ended up doing almost as much jail time as Casey did after the verdict. Wheres the justice in that, Mr. Baez? Or Mr. Mason? Or Judge Perry? No, Mr. Mason, you spent too much time blasting us guys in the media for turning this trial into a three-ring circus. (Not that it wasnt already.) And you, Mr. Baez, I read about your antics a ninth-grade drop-out who got a GED and then Forty days of angry words, all wrapped in dysfunctionalitya law degree here in South Florida, only to be barred until 2005 by the Florida Supreme Court from using that degree. Casey handpicked you as her attorney on recommendation from other prison inmates. Nice job, sir. Im putting you on the list with Bob Shapiro, Johnny Cochran and the rest of the OJ Dream Team. By the way, O.J. Simpson swore that he would spend the rest of his life trying to find his wifes real killer. Will Casey take that same oath or perhaps concoct some other interesting fantasy? So what happens now? The case is over. Casey has been judged not guilty. I was shocked became a household phrase and court watchers invented a new adjective: Weve been OJed. Like many people, including prosecutor Jeff Ashton, Im not happy with the verdict. I think jurors who claim there wasnt enough evidence gave no credence to the fact that Casey didnt report her daughter missing for 31 days, that she created liestrewn stories about where she was and what she was doing. I think duct tape and the chloroform either worked together or sepa rately to kill the beautiful, dark-eyed girl. Really, Casey, if you didnt want to be a mother if youd rather party and have yourself tattooed while knowing your daughter is missing, then why didnt you just put her up for adoption? The Anthony family has been called dysfunc tional. Is that an excuse for what happened? Did Caylee Anthony die as a result of dysfunctionality? (That could be the cause of death, jurors.) I saw Jeff Ashton being interviewed the night before Casey Anthony was sentenced. He seemed calm, and by then he could accept the fact that a not guilty verdict had been rendered. But the pain of that trial has forced him to quit the office of the prosecution and we are losing an exceptional attorney as a result. If he can accept the verdict, then I can accept it. But there are things I cant accept. I cant accept the idea of a 2-year-old child dying for no reason. I cant accept the fact that Caylee could go missing for 31 days without her disappearance being reported. I remember once my wife didnt come straight home from work. By 7:30 p.m., I was calling her friends, and was about to call the sheriffs office when she came in. I did this because I love my wife. How much did Casey really love Caylee? Though the jury said there was no established cause of death, the fact is, Caylee Marie Anthony is dead. Can we suspend our perception of reality to believe that Caylee drowned in the pool, or that she put duct tape on her own mouth, put herself in a plastic bag and threw herself into a swamp? Casey Anthony is scheduled to leave prison Sunday, July 17. We can only assume she will party through the night in celebration. But when the party is over, will she really go on to live the beautiful life as is tattooed on her back? Dear Dale, It was another successful year for the Soroptimist women in assisting women and children lead a better life. Thank you and the Boca Tribune for all the coverage. Also, the golf tournament article looked great. Barbara McCormick Dear Dale, I have a copy of last weeks paper. Love your editorial about Clarence Clemons. Well done.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER It was just a few months ago in April that I shared with you some thoughts about a highway tragedy that, for my family and me, hit very close to home. It was a difficult thing to do, following a fatal ac cident that was totally unexpected. Today, I have to do it again. The crash of a motorcycle and truck in Coconut Creek Sunday has taken the life of a young man who has been a friend of my family since we first moved here. Coconut Creek police say the collision of a motorcycle and a pickup truck killed both drivers. David Da Silva, 18, of Boca Raton, was on the motorcycle heading north on Lyons Road when the collision occurred about 3 a.m. Sunday at Lyons Road and Hillsboro Boulevard. Davids family moved next door to us a short time after we arrived in the United States. He became a close friend of my son, Pedro, who is just a little older than he was. But our family and the Da Silvas were very close. David graduated from Boca Raton High School this year and had recently bought the motorcycle he dreamed of getting, Tragedy on the highway has personal touch for second timefriends told the Sun Sentinel. Pedro said he and David used to chum around a lot when we lived near each other. Then, Davids family moved away. But even after that, we still talked, Pedro said. A few years later, when Pedro was a senior at Olympic Heights High School, David enrolled as a freshman. They began to hang out together again, at least for that year. Since Pedro graduated from high school, he and David have been keeping in touch via Facebook. David was a very friendly boy, and was apparently liked by many. The Sun Sentinel said that by Tuesday, Davids memorial page on Facebook had more than 1,400 followers, with several of them sharing loving memories of him. A photo of David displayed on the page shows him sitting proudly on his motorcycle. The entire Heizer family offers Davids family our deepest sympathies at this tragic time. Events like this make me pray for everyone who has to drive Floridas congested highways every day. I talked about it back in April when 20-year-old Danyl Dubsky, another family friend, was killed on State Road 7 approaching Sandalfoot Boulevard when his SUV struck the traffic signal pole at the northwest corner of the intersection. In both of these cases, it took only a moment to snuff out a life. Again, I have been thinking about teenagers as they approach the age when they can get a drivers license and go places with their friends and family. I wonder if they truly realize how dangerous driving can be. Certainly they hear enough about the hazards of the road in school and driver educa tion classes. I look at my own children and wonder how hurt I would be if one of them suddenly died in a car accident. Ive heard the word senseless used to describe many auto crashes. Actually, ALL traffic accidents are senseless, whether there is a specific cause or just a set of unfortunate circumstances. As I said once before, we take two lessons away with us today: To hold those we love close to us and pay strict attention to the overriding need to drive safely. Several people I know will never be truly happy, on account of the extremely rigid and overly strict standards theyve set for themselves, besides the intolerance they display toward anybody who misses their personal expectations. As a result, nothing they do will ever satisfy them completely, and what others attempt also falls short of their anticipations. Such condition is more a curse than anything else. But it need not be so!While it is very commendable to have an eye for detail, to strive for excellence, and even expect the maximum which others can deliver, some people spend a lifetime of unnecessary misery, totally devoid of genuine joy, on account of their failure in recognizing that all humans are fallible; the best for one person may differ considerably from the What Does It Take To Satisfy You?best that others have set for themselves. It is honorable and reasonable to keep trying until you reach the desired result. Many inventors did just that and positively affected the human race through their discoveries. It is also most becoming to wish and attempt high quality in all your pursuits, and even to expect the same from others, especially if and when you are paying them to do it for you. Yet, everything which humans produce is inevitably tinged with imperfection some items more noticeably than others. The term perfectionism, though related to the word perfect does not necessarily describe a good, positive quality for one to possess, since nothing is or can ever be fully perfect on earth. Yet, one is to strive for perfection, to attempt the very best they can, even if perfection as such shall never be attained on earth by any human! Nevertheless, it is wise to approach any situation or condition with the assurance that it can improve. With this perspec tive one will be more ready to employ all personal powers and external resources to make that a reality, under Gods approval and supervision. Believing the opposite, and proclaiming It cant be done or It cant get better will inevitably bring paralysis and result in an immediate, self-fulfilled prophecy.People can and should strive to improve themselves and much that surrounds them. But there is a point when finality must be brought to a situation and acknowledged in the execution of a project, large or small. Sometimes, trying beyond what has already been fulfilled may accentuate unnoticeable flaws instead of removing potential defects.

In an interview, Thierry Dubroca, a postdoctoral researcher who has been working on the project with Professor Rolf Hummel for over three years, said the recent improvements to the machine make it useful for airport security. According to Dubroca, the technology behind the machine was developed by Professor Hummel around 2004 with funding given after Sept. 11 when a great deal of money was being put toward national security. It is no secret that, since the attack on America nearly 10 years ago, getting through airport security has become a long, pain-New processes for airport scanners could lessen travelers wait timeful process. Ashley Snyder, 21, a senior student at UF, remembers well how frustrating it was to get through security. We were flying overseas and they did the wand and wipes check, Snyder said. It was a whole ordeal. The developed technology for the machine uses ultraviolet light to detect explosive residue that could be left in the carryon. After the light shines on the carry-on, a computer program detects if there are any residual amounts of explosives left on it by absorbing the light that bounces back from the luggage to detect the signature wave length found in explosives. Recently, Hummel and Dubroca reached a breakthrough in adapting the already developed technology into a scanner that could be easily used at airports to scan carry-ons in a quick and efficient manner. It is more than a refinement, it is actually a huge improvement, Dubroca said. In the past it would take 90 seconds to do one measurement point. Now, in about three to five seconds, I can make about 10,000 mea surements. The good news for travelers is that if this scanner is put into place by the Transportation Security Administration, it will speed the process of getting through security while eliminating human errors and making travelers safer. All without creating any significant cost increases to travelers. The scanner, which doesnt look very different from the usual X-rays at the airport security, would cost TSA up to $200,000. And that number, according to Dubroca, can be decreased with mass production. Although the number looks big, Dubroca said that using the developed scanner will be more reliable and cost effective than the current technology. In an email interview, Sari Koshetz, regional TSA spokeswoman, said the Explosive Trace Detection is the technology used at security checkpoints in which an officer may swab a piece of carryon or a passengers hand and then place the swab in an ETD unit to analyze the presence of a potential explosive residue. Dubroca said this method is both expensive and has a high probability of yielding false positives. The method cant tell the difference among chemicals found in explosives and those found in some cosmetics and fertilizers. It is also only used for random scans, given its high cost. You could have put on hand lotion and touched your bag and it could lead to a false positive, Dubroca said. The newly developed scanner can detect the difference among those chemicals and drastically decreases the number of false positives. It also would allow for every bag to be scanned because there is no difference in cost if one or 1,000 bags are scanned. Koshetz said she hasnt heard anything about Professor Hummels development, but Dubroca said a proposal will be sent to the TSA in the next couple of months. Until then, remember to get to the airport at least two hours before your flight.

Caldwell Theatres got its Stu together in funny, tragic play What is this Stuff that is going on at Caldwell Theatre through July 31? For one thing it is a new play by South Florida resident Michael McKeever. For another thing it is based on the real-life story of the once-wealthy Collyer brothers of Manhattan. Stuff is a tragic family drama, yet it is a farcical comedy as penned by Michael McKeever, who plays the older Collyer brother, Homer. I wasnt expecting laughs in a story of two brothers with a domineering, controlling mother and an absent, uncaring father, who out of fear, weakness and self-delusion became virtual hermits and packrats, crippled by paranoia. Michael McKeever will love this. Walking the beach, pondering the play, I began thinking about the brilliant French playwright Moliere. Like McKeever, Moliere was an actor, and he wrote roles for himself. His plays skewered the pretentious, self-important and hypocritical members of French society. The Collyer family of upper Manhattan had all three of those qualities, with the added drawbacks of cowardice, incompetence and impracticality. We meet the clan in 1929, just before the Great Depression, in their opulent four-story brownstone in Harlem, before it was largely a black community. Susie Gage Frost Collyer (Angie Radosh) is the imperious queen bee of the establishment, lording over her cowering sons Homer (Michael McKeever) and Langley (Nicholas Richberg). Mom, an ex opera singer, is convinced there is a performance at the Metropolitan Opera that night by a long-dead opera star. Homer tries to convince her otherwise, to little avail. It is clear mom lives in a privileged world that no longer exists. We see cracks Scene from Stuff at Caldwell Theater B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL in her faade when she becomes anxious about the presence of a young black man (Marckenson Charles) in her inner sanctum. Thomas Bevins (Charles) is there to deliver real estate documents regarding the house across the street. Homer thinks it would be a great investment to buy it and subdivide it into apartments. Mother is appalled. It takes a while for Lang ley (Nicholas Richberg) to make an entrance, but it is apparent he has the closest contact with the real world outside. Langley delivers newspapers, food, and stuff he finds on the street he thinks may be valuable. The Collyer mansion is already stuffed with stuff from the Collyers privileged life: grand pianos, expensive furniture, a ca noe in the attic and a Model T in the basement. When mom dies, this compulsive hoarding becomes an allconsuming sickness. So where is the humor in all this, you may ask? It is in the deft performance of the actors and the incredible marvel of the set.The already-crowded set in Act One becomes chockablock with stuff in Act Two, with mom dead, Homer blind and crippled and only Langley left to stave off the encroaching world with booby traps and angry threats.Stuff is more about family dynamics than compulsive hoarding, though Michael McKeever, left, and Nicholas Richberg, flank Angie Radosh. there is a practical lesson to be learned. We all have too much stuff, too many delusions. What really matters is the love of family and friends. That is the lesson I got from McKeevers Stuff, and for that, I would tip my hat (if I had one) to McKeever, director Clive Cholerton and company. Youve got some good, messy stuff at Caldwell. Tickets are $38-$50. Call 561241-7432 or go to www. caldwelltheatre.com.

Ed 56 By Diane Feen B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Are you tired of preservatives, high fructose corn syrup and hormone fueled poultry? I am. Thats why I never eat fast food (taboo in my book) and walk gingerly through grocery stores reading labels. The luxury of eating out has become a chore for me in my search for restaurants whose menu is not filled with factory prepared (or prepackaged) meals by Sysco. So, it came as a big surprise to me that Robert Greenfield, (who created Greenfields in Delray Beach) teamed up with Joey Giannuzzi (of The Green Gourmet) to open the first sit-down gourmet healthy restaurant in what was once Greenfields (on West Atlantic Ave). At first I missed the hot spot where our grandparents grazed for prix-fixed meals of brisket and pota toes with vegetables. But once I had a chance to take a good look at what was happening at this new restaurant called DIG, I was elated. I dont know about you, but it was with great excitement that I browsed at a salad bar with seaweed salad (excellent source of vitamins and minerals), sunflower sprouts, quinoa salad with raisins, tofu (and a dozen other items), organic tomatoes, healthy greens and home-made dressings. You also get a choice of two homemade soups. It was heaven on earth to delve into a salad bar made Can you DIG it?up of fresh, local, organic, healthy food that is actually medicine for the body and soul. If this sounds too esoteric for your taste buds, its not. There are meats and poultry dishes that are grass fed, organic, locally grown or have an origin that is carefully watched. The food at DIG is never fried, has no hormones, no sulfites (yeah), no steroids, pesticides, chemicals or nitrates. They also dont use cream, butter or eggs in their sauces. If youve seen Larry David (of TVs Curb Your Enthusiasm) on talk shows lately he has bemoaned the fate of our food supply. I agree with Larry. But with DIG I didnt have to worry. Their salmon dish over zucchini, squash, eggplant and tomato sauce was heavenly with a balsamic glaze. And, I was over the moon with the pompano fish by Chef Wilson with raisins, vinaigrette, capers and couscous. If you like bread and butter, but dont want all the funky stuff, check out DIGs hemp crackers and Earthbound butter. DIG also has freshly made organic juices and green drinks, an adult smoothie bar (with or without alcohol) and a full organic bar (beer and wine too). But one thing for sure, you wont find homemade food this healthy at many places in South Florida. It is nirvana for people fedup with heartburn and unhealthy greasy fare. Before you leave, check out their divinely inspired homemade desserts. The blueberry pie, key lime pie and brownie with ice-cream are nothing like youve ever tasted (and are healthy to boot). DIG (which means doing it green) just opened in the former space of Greenfields, just west of Military Trail on Atlantic Avenue. You will be glad you did and so will your stomach!

How can a business owner/manager get a better fix on who the customer is? Focus Groups Focus groups that I mentioned in a previous column are a given. This is a powerful research tool that gives the company/organization an opportunity to interact directly with a cross section of its public. Its conducted in a controlled environment and the publics responses can be properly recorded and analyzed. It is advisable to have an experienced focus group organizer conduct this group activity. The fee is usually within reach of smaller businesses/organizations and the results of a properly run focus group will result in a better understanding of your customer, their wants, and their needs. However, focus groups are not without caveats. Success depends upon the participants truly representing a cross-section of the audience, the applicability of the questions asked, the moderators performance in guiding the conversation appropriately, and the analysis of the answers. Dening Your AudienceAudience Surveys Another research tool that can be helpful in understanding the characteristics of a group and the behavioral and psychological structure of the companys audience is that of conducting an audience survey. In a survey, the company typically hires an outside company to send out pollsters to conduct the survey by asking set questions, recording the answers and tabulating them. The questions asked in a survey should be relevant and meaningful to the topic of the organizations initiative. Typically, surveys require many respondents before the answers can be analyzed properly. Questionnaires Questionnaires are another measurement which helps in obtaining informa tion. They are similar to surveys, only they are handed out or mailed to present or prospective customers. The responses are written and handed or mailed in. The responses are then tallied, tabulated and analyzed. One of the benefits of questionnaires is that there is no human interaction during the questionnaire; thus the risk of human interference or misinterpretation is eliminated from the process of gathering the informa tion. However, since there isnt a pollster involved in the gathering process, the ratio of replies is much lower than in surveys. In addition, there is still a chance of misinterpreta tion during the tabulation and analysis portions of the questionnaire. Secondary Data Sources There are several sourc es that can provide analyzed or secondary data about many audience groups. This information is ana lyzed and interpreted by an agency other than the company itself. The U.S. Census Bureau is a government agency that serves as the leading source of quality data about the nations people and economy. The bureau collects information while protecting privacy and confidentiality, shares its expertise globally free of charge, and conducts its work openly. Information is readily available from its Web sitewww.census.gov/ where data is supplied about individuals, household, companies, industries, and regions. There are also commercial wholesalers of secondary data that provide information and detailed reports about consumers, compa nies, industries, and specific markets. Much of the information requires a fee to access, but some companies offer valuable studies and resources for free as well. The Nielsen Company, headquartered in New York City, offers information gathered from a wide range of sourc es. Its website (www.acnielsen.com) contains links to many research tools for audience segmentation, including free reports. The Gallup Company (www.gallup.com/) has studied human nature and behavior for more than 70 years. Gallup consultants help organizations boost growth by increasing customer engagement and maximizing employee productivity through measurement tools, coursework, and strategic advisory services.

Columnists The Boca Raton TribuneBy Pr. Sandy Huntsman Pastor Sandy Huntsman Administrative Pastor Boca Glades Baptist Church www.bocaglades.org Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. By Mike Gora Over the last several weeks the citizens of Florida have had their emotions intentionally manipulated, aroused, twisted and turned by Nancy Grace and the other clowns of the CNN and HLN networks for the purpose of increasing the number of their viewers. They were successful as their numbers doubled. Its not farfetched to think that if one or two viewers who bought into the hype wind up killing Casey Anthony upon her release, Nancy Grace might face charges herself for inciting a riot. Do not mistake the loud mouths for journalists. By the time the jury of 12 in Orlando was sent behind the curtain to deliberate the fate of Casey Anthony the constant beat of the guilty drum orchestrated by the know nothing chorus of brainless, self serving charlatans led by Nancy had convinced the populous that Tot Mom deserved to die. As was said by the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, off with her head. Sentence first, trial later. We who have been lucky or unlucky enough to try a number of big time capital cases at some earlier time know that the hardest thing that any trial lawyer ever had to do was prove guilt Hysteria is not justicebeyond and to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt. We also know that the lack of hard real evidence in the Casey Anthony case made acquittal likely. Congratulations to former Broward judge Larry Seidlen who was fair and balanced and called the ac quittal ahead of the verdict. Then there was the end of the prosecutions rebuttal argument, and the careless but truthful comment of an assistant state attorney, that all the jury had left to do was to find who committed the murder, wink, wink. I knew long before then there would not be a guilty verdict. (Ask my wife.) The state had failed to prove the primary elements of the crime: the instrument of death, the time of death, and the person who had committed the acts which caused the death. Not one shred of real evidence tying the defendant to the crime had been presented. Not a fingerprint, a hair, fluid, a blood smear, a foot print, a thread of clothing, an admission, or an eye witness. The states house of cards had been built with a combination of character assassination, innuendo, hope, and fear. They wanted to stampede the jury in their direc tion and hoped that the trial judge or an appellate court would not have the guts to overturn the jury. The states case had more holes than a great Swiss cheese. The state was selling smoke and mirrors. The state did Caylee no favors and no justice. The saying, He who laughs last, laughs best, was never truer. One can wonder why the Judge did not dismiss the amorphous case when the state rested. One can also wonder whether or not the judge would have dismissed the case if the jury had found Casey guilty (a legal possibility) but the jury saved him that decision, and perhaps his next election. Within an hour of the verdicts announcement, intentionally stirred up by the fools at their microphones, people were marching in anger on the Orange County Courthouse, and Ms Anthonys prior home. The witch hunt was reaching high gear. If Orlando had been a town in the old west or that fishing village in Massachusetts Ms Anthony would have been dragged out of the jail and hanged, or burned at the stake as a witch, or drowned in a nearby lake. We are examining what appears to be two different worlds in collision: the scientific world and the biblical world. What we must keep perfectly clear is the facts backing the Christian claim are not a special kind of religious fact. They are the cog nitive, informational facts upon which all historical, legal, and ordinary decisions are based. (Clark Pinnock, Set Forth Your Case, pg 6-7) Our belief should not be blind or a leap into the dark but involve the mind, emotion and will based on evidence. While the Bible is not specifically a scientific textbook, it does contain many statements that have been scientifically confirmed. For example, the hydrologic cycles: Evaporation, translation aloft by atmospheric circulation, condensation with electrical discharge and precipitation. He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain; He brings the wind out of His treasuries. (Psalm 135:7) When He utters His voice, There is a multitude of waters in the heavens: And He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain, He brings the wind out of His treasuries. (Jeremiah 10.13) The process of water vapor condensing to water droplets in the clouds co alescing to raindrops. For He draws up drops of Water, Water Everywherewater, Which distill as rain from the mist, Which the clouds drop down And pour abundantly on man. Indeed, can anyone understand the spreading of clouds, The thunder from His canopy? (Job 36.27-29) The water recirculation process. All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not full; To the place from which the rivers come, There they return again. (Ecclesiastes 1.7) For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, but water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower, And bread to the eater (Isaiah 55.10) The National Groundwater Association writes All the water of the Earth including the atmosphere, oceans, surface water, and groundwater participates in the natural system we call the hydrologic cycle. As water moves through all these elements repeatedly, the system is truly cyclical. (www.ngwa.org/Funda mentals/hydrology/Pages/ The-hydrologic-cycle.aspx) The vast quantity of water that can be held as condensation in clouds. He binds up the water in His thick clouds, Yet the clouds are not broken under it. (Job 26.8) Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. (Job 37.11) USA Today quotes Peggy LeMone, senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, as saying that a thunderstorm cloud contains approximately 275 million gallons of water. (www.usatoday.com/weather/resources/askjack/archives-thunderstorms.htm) Hydrothermal vents. In the 600th year of Noahs life, in the second month, the 17th day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. (Genesis 7.11) Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths? (Job 38.16) Today, because of our advancements in technology and atmospheric and deep underwater exploration, this information is common knowledge but most of this information was not known until relatively recently. Before the 17th century, many natural philosophers accepted the Greek theory (proposed by people who lived in a semiarid climate on limestone hills) that rainfall was insufficient to feed springs and rivers. It was thought that spring water was purified sea water from deep within the earth (reverse osmosis? The question we must ask ourselves is How did these ancient authors ac quire such precise informa tion? They did not have the equipment we have today nor access to many of the regions of the upper atmosphere or deep oceans. It is a question worth pondering...Read complete story online

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. By Barry Siegel Barry D. Siegel, Esq., President of Barry D. Siegel, P.A, is an attorney who practices Estate Planning, Asset Protection, Elder Law, Trust Administration and Probate. Mr. Siegel, an author and frequent guest speaker, | 1200 North Federal Hwy, Suite 200, Boca Raton, FL 33432 | (855) FLA-ESTATE BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL JD Anstar owned two successful businesses. The first was a food distributorship operating in five states. The second was a group of seventeen nursing homes. JD had a significant net worth, much of it tied up in the two businesses. The businesses were run by JDs daughters. They handled almost all of the day-to-day operations and were very good at what they did. He felt it was time to start transferring ownership of the business to them. Many years ago, JD had remarried and had a son from this second marriage. JDs son had a successful ca reer and had no interest in joining the family business. JD knew he faced several major hurdles. First, because the business value was significant, he knew he faced challenges in transferring ownership of the business to his daughters without paying a hefty tax. Second, he wanted to make sure that he had enough retirement income so that he could maintain his lifestyle and meet his income needs for the rest of his life. Lastly, he wanted to make sure that he treated his son fairly. He appreciated that equal did not always mean fair, since his daughters had already put years into building the busi-Saving the family Businessness. But he felt that his son should still receive a significant amount. Yet he did not want his son to have to wait for his sisters to make distributions from the business, nor did he want the daughters to feel like they were constantly under scrutiny from their brother. He started with an appointment with his compa ny lawyer, who referred him to an estate planning specialist. The specialist worked with JD to create a plan that minimized gift tax (the tax due when transferring assets to a child) and yet ac complished the transfer of the business to his daughters. Because the transfer was structured as an installment sale, a planning strategy used for transferring asset from one generation to another, JD was comfortable that his cash flow needs could be met for the remainder of his life. As a side advantage, any future appreciation in the assets would belong to the daughters. This would save estate taxes later at JDs death. From the daughters point of view, the plan was attractive since it meant that future growth would belong to them. This made sense to everyone because the daughters were the ones showing up every day and creating new value. JDs lawyer also consulted with a trusted insurance professional. Together they structured a life insurance plan that was affordable to JD and to the company. The life insurance would pay when JD and his wife died and provide an inheritance to JDs son in an amount that satisfied JDs desire to be fair to all of his children. The insurance was struc tured in such a way that neither the premiums nor the death benefit would be subject to gift or estate tax. During his annual meeting, five years after the plan was put into place, the lawyer visited with JD to discuss how the plan was working. JD reported that even in the down economy his daughters had been growing the business and providing the cash flow needed to complete the installment sale as well as funding the insurance premiums. JDs most important comment was that he got what he wanted from the plan and was thankful for the thoughtfulness and expertise brought to the table by each of his advisors. Business succession is often tied in tightly with estate and wealth transfer planning. In todays environment, be sure that the members of your planning team have the expertise needed to help you accomplish your goals.

A sophomore out of Petrie, Australia, Chambers was Chambers Honored as Womens Golf Scholar All-American Strikers drop second in a row, lose to lastplace Atlanta Silverbacks By Pedro Heizer The Atlanta Silverbacks won their first away game of the season this past Saturday as they defeated the slumping Fort Lauderdale Strikers 3-2 at Lockhart Stadium in front of 2,661 Striker Likers. The Silverbacks looked lost at the begining of the game allowing Abe Thompson to score early in the 7th minute from a free kick by Coudet. Eduardo Coudet took a quick free kick and found Abe Thompson who hit it past Atlanta goalie Jimmy Maurer. The goal was Thompsons second of the season and Coudets team-leading fourth assist of the season. Exactly 10 minutes later, Atlanta struck with a goal by Paulini to tie the game at one. The Silverbacks seized a 2-1 lead in the 32nd minute on a beautiful bending free kick by Ciaran OBrien from 22 yards out past Strikers goalkeeper Matt Glaeser. It was OBriens third goal of the season. The Silverbacks took a 3-1 advantage in the 53rd minute when Matt Horth scored his fourth goal of the season splitting the Strikers defense and dribbling past Glaeser and scored into an open net. Glaeser, the NASL Defensive Player of the Month, had given up four goals in the previous seven matches for the Strikers, but in the past two games has allowed seven.Its disappointing, said Strikers coach Daryl Shore. We had a good start to the game and got the goal. Then we fell apart defensively. You would think that when you get that many corners you are going to get a goal off one of them.Theres a saying that says You play the team not the record and Coach Shore knew exactly what that felt like, We knew Atlanta wasnt what their record shows, they got three goals and made it tough for us. The Strikers cut the deficit to 3-2 in the 74th minute when Bryan Arguez scored his first goal of the season on a blast that went right by Atlantas Jimmy Maurer, but it wasnt enough as the Strikers dropped their first game at Lockhart Stadium since April 9th against FC Edmonton. The road doesnt get any easier for the Strikers who will be on the road for the next two games. The Strikers will play Montreal Wednesday night at 7:30pm, the game can be seen live at strikers.com.
