Released on personal recognizance Haridopolos quits Senate race; Hasner camp cites boostBOCA RATON -Mike Haridopolos, perhaps the most nameworthy candidate among Republicans planning to seek the seat of Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson next year, has quit the race. And thats good news for former local State Rep. and ex-House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, whose Senate campaign team sent out an e-mail soon after Haridopolos left the race. There was big news today, and we wanted to share it with you, said the email from the Hasner team. One of our opponents, Mike Haridopolos, announced he is dropping out of the race for Senate. Theres now a clear choice between a principled, limited-government conservative and Marco Rubio ally in Adam Hasner, and the original Charlie Crist Republican in George LeMieux. Actually, there are 10 announced candidates on the 2012 ballot already, most of them newcomers or also rans. However, LeMieux who was picked by Gov. Crist to fill the unexpired term of former U. S. Senator Mel Martinez when he quit before his term expired is also on that list. Martinez seat was won in 2010 by Marco Rubio. Hasner, 41, was District 87 state rep (Boca-Delray area) from 2002 to 2010, yielding the seat due to term limits. He was appointed House Majority Leader by Rubio when Rubio was House Speaker. In an address posted on YouTube, Haridopolos said he was pursuing the U.S.Senate seat when he realized his duties as federal candidate and state senate president were in conflict. I am no longer a U.S. Senate candidate and wont run for other office this year or next, Haridopolos said, adding he is rededicating myself to being president of the Senate. Adam Hasner Mike Haridopolos Previous answer: U2 wanted Dylan to sing for them.

Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Work continues on Remembrance Plaza at Lynn University BOCA RATON The Lynn University campus has been especially busy and literally earthmoving this summer with the construction of the Lynn University Remembrance Plaza under way. The plaza, a perma nent tribute to the Lynn students and professors who lost their lives in the 2010 Haiti earthquake, will be located at the heart of campus and bordering the lake adjacent to Lynns student center, the Lynn Residence Hall and the Schmidt Center.The plaza will combine the symbolic elements of light, water, stone and trees to create a place of remembrance, reflection and inspira tion which makes for an interesting construc tion challenge. School officials said work began a few weeks ago when the lake was drained. Returning students, staff and faculty might recall seeing fish swimming (and jumping) in the lake and wonder what happened to them. Surprisingly, the lake was home to approximately 2,500 fish (with the tiny Blue Gill being the smallest and a 47pound Trip Loid Grass Carp being the largest). The Trip Loid Grass Carp are designed to biologically control exotic weeds, said Andy Fuhrman of Allstate Resource Management, Inc., who helped moved the fish. Lynn orig inally stocked the Triploid Grass Carp to help con trol non-native and inva sive aquatic weeds. Allstate successfully transferred all 2,500 fish, without harm, from the drained lake and restocked them among three additional lakes on Lynns campus. After construction on the Remembrance Plaza is completed and the lake is refilled, the lake will be restocked with new fish fingerlings, or from existing fish in the surrounding lakes. But one thing is for certain the lake will be home to more than fish. It will be home to the Remembrance Plaza (designed by architect Luis Sousa) with six prisms shimmering with light representing each of the lost individuals; a waterfall that will cascade onto six steps, also representing the six and leading to the lake; a relief map of Haiti including the story of the Journey of Hope; and the Royal Palm, the national tree of Haiti. Sousa, who wanted to commemorate the past while being inspired by the future, said, The plaza embodies the six who were lost while allowing others to reflect. Story, photo by Dale M. King BOCA RATON A million-dollar Police Strategic Operations and Forensic Laboratory will soon occupy most, if not all, of the remaining space at the Police/Fire Training Facility at 6500 Congress Ave.The City Council recently awarded a $1,243,000 contract to Sisca Construction Services LLC to build the 14,823 square foot lab and to make renovations and interior improvements for the build-out of the struc ture, according to City Manager Leif Ahnell. Sisca was lowest of the 12 firms that submitted bids for the project. Ahnell said bids were solicited from 698 companies. The city purchased the building at 6500 Congress Ave. known as the Sony Building a number of years ago when it became vacant. Assistant City Manager Mike Woika noted that over the years, the fire administration has Forensic lab to ll out nal section of Police/Fire Training Facility on Congressbeen moved into the building along with the police and fire training facility, an auditorium and other specialized rooms. He said that took up about twothirds of the structure. The city made room for police and fire training in the aftermath of the 2001 anthrax attack at the AMI Building, which required the police and fire departments to work together to handle a potentially severe hazard. Former Police Chief Andrew Scott and Former Fire Chief Bruce Silk were vocal supporters of the dual-use facility, as are the current heads of those two departments. Woika said the city is actually getting some help with funding through a pair of grants. One will pump $300,000 into the cost of construction; the other will add $300,000 to the pot of money being set aside to hire staff and purchase equipment.He said the $1,243,000 covers only construction costs.Remembrance Plaza under construction.

It is only the fifth course in the world to gain that recognition. The designation plaque a large portrait of an osprey flying and holding a fish was to have been presented by Nancy E. Richardson, executive director of Audubon Internationals Signature Programs. County Parks and Recreation Superintendent Eric Call said she had travel problems and was unable to make it. The ceremony continued anyway, and included comments from county officials, County Commissioner Burt Aaronson and Geoff Lofstead, executive director of the Professional Golfers Association, South Florida section. Officials who spoke traced the evolution of the golf course located at 12551 Glades Road, on the grounds of South County Park, with emphasis on the meticulous attention to the environment. Call said construction began in 2006, but was halted in 2007 due to the drought and other issues. Work resumed in 2009 and the course was opened last November. He said the course got its name when officials touring the property noticed five survey stakes with an osprey perched Osprey Point Golf Course aces Audubon Sanctuary designation Clubhouse at Osprey Point Golf CourseBOCA RATON An employee of Pelican Cleaners, 2901 Clint Moore Road, flagged down a Boca Raton Police officer about 5:45 p.m. July 13 and told him the store had just been robbed.

We felt osprey had to be in the name of the course. Aaronson also noted an encounter with native creatures. He said he was playing the course when a turtle walked across the green and golfers stopped to let it pass. The commission noted the lake behind the pro shop and said, We will soon have boat ramps there. People playing golf will be able to see boats. County Commissioner Burt Aaronson addresses the audience. The Audubon designation plaque is to his right Walking trails along the perimeter are also envisioned. He said the golf course was a $14 million project that works with the environmental community. He said the course has won several awards in addition to the Audubon designation. Golf Course Consultant Edward C. Ted Horton said Osprey Point is one of the largest open spaces in an urban environment. He said the course does much to retain storm water and control flow. Lofstead pointed out the popularity of golf, which he said is a $7.5 billion industry in Florida $930 million just in Palm Beach County. He said golf courses are the best users of green space, and they also give back tax revenues to communities and counties. To help the environment, Osprey Point has Platinum Paspalum grass from tee to green to create an exceptional playing surface with reduced irrigation.Golf course architect was the API Group Inc. Project manager/civil engineers were Miller Legg, Heller, Weaver & Sheremeta Inc. The course was built by the Weitz Company and H and J Contracting.

The article was not a news item, but rather, an expression of personal sorrow over the tragedy that killed David Da Silva, 18, of Boca Raton and Edward Joseph, 27, of Deerfield Beach. We agree that this type of terrible crash that kills two young and vibrant people should not happen. But we are not looking to point a finger or place blame. Instead, to gain some measure of good from this accident, the Tribune will follow up with both families, and will launch a traffic safety awareness campaign in upcoming editions. We will include agencies that deal with highway safety, particularly, the Dori Slosberg Foundation and state Rep. Irv Slosberg, a longtime advocate of safer driving. With this story is a photo of Eddie Joseph, sent by his cousin, Ryan Joseph, with my Aunt Jill and Aunt Melody.

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 EditorAt some point in history, I crossed the threshold from middle age to senior citizenry. That moment is fixed in my memory. A few years ago, I was in a fastfood restaurant ordering a coffee. The youngster behind the counter who took my order asked, Is that a senior coffee?No, I replied with indig nation. A regular coffee.It was then that reality caught up with me. What did I just do, I asked. I just forced this kid to charge me more for the coffee. I had forgotten that seniors get a break on the cost of beverages at this place. It was then that I decided that if I am going to be a senior citizen, I am going to make the best of it. But before I could really get into the senior citizens gig, I began to realize that we, as a group, are picked on a lot. Some people think we are stupid or senile; that weve forgotten how to do small thinks like tie our shoes Youd better stop messing with us senior citizensor button our shirts. They relegate us to the status of whiteheads who sit in lawn chairs and blubber about the old days. Thats not true and anyone who thinks it is had better get wise. And that includes politicians. I remember a song from my youth called Summertime Blues. In it, theres a lyric attributed to a politician who says to a youngster, Id like to help you son, but youre too young to vote. For seniors, its the same sentiment, but at the other end of the spectrum. (i.e., youre too old for me to care about). This sentiment isnt new. I remember as a student intern news reporter (about age 20). I was assigned to cover the appearance of a congresswoman at a local senior center. By chance, I had seen an article in the previous days paper which said she had voted to cut funding for senior meals programs. Yet she was there at the senior center, glad handing the daylights out of the elder crowd. Apparently they hadnt seen the article I had. Today, its more insidious and I point, unfortunately, to our president, Barack Obama. Through-out this whole argument about whether to lift the debt limit, he has raised the specter that seniors may not get their Social Security checks next month unless the GOP caves.My God, is it necessary to dump on seniors, to target them and scare the hell out of them by putting them at the vortex of your argument? At least one newspaper report said Obama was using seniors as pawns in his chess game with the Republicans. Obama said and I heard this right from his lips that unless the debt debacle can be solved by Aug. 2 then Social Security recipients might not get their checks for the month. Then, he sweetened the pot by adding in the possibility that the disabled and veterans might also not get checks. I wish I could talk to Mr. Obama face to face. I would say: Mr. President, did you know that for many senior citizens, Social Security is the only income they have? And also, did you know that if seniors dont get their Social Security checks in August, who will they blame it on? And then, in November 2012, guess which groups of people WONT be voting for you? Maybe Mr. Obama doesnt realize that people dont vote for politicians who have upset them down to the very core of their financial existence. And if you, Mr. Obama, go through with this Nyah, nyah, granny, you wont get your Social Security next month, youre going to engender a lot of long-term animosity. Remember these things. Well see what happens at the polls. To the Editor: Thank you for your support of our events. It has been very helpful.

Everybodys personal identity is developed and maintained in relation to ones origins. People long to know of their heritage in order to move on in life and reach a fulfilling future. If ones ancestry is a source of shame, one may either get stuck in that knowledge and condition, cover it up, or be more determined to transcend all adversity or inadequacy, and make progress toward a more meaningful future. By the same token, if ones past is glorious, if one descends from an illustrious family line, one may reap corresponding laurels. Yet, if studying the ancestors history one discovers hidden flaws amidst victories, serious problems left unresolved, or other vital issues requiring more adequacy addressing all this can still contribute to a fulfilling present and promising future. Soren Kierkegaard, the 19th century Danish phi-Your Roots and Identitylosopher, stated that we live forward, but we can only think backward. Indeed, mistakes are normally not corrected while they are happening, but only much later, from the perspective of careful observation and gradual rec ognition of what can be improved. Action then follows! The word roots in this context, reflects our desire to learn whence we have come, who we are, where we have been, what are we becoming, what prompts us into motion, what keeps us going, and what kind of obstacles we have already successfully overcome. Most of all, it also points to where we are now; is it the right place? Are we in step with Gods purpose for our life? All these questions are essential because people can learn from failure and, at the same time, be stimulated into greater achievements based on lessons learned, and in view of past successes enjoyed as well! Gods blueprint is ever before us! Authors Thomas M. Gannon and George M. Traub, from their vast study of history, concluded that only the man who truly possesses the past can own his own present and, obviously, devise the future by taking the right steps leading him there! Regardless of what identity you may have ac quired from your family, on account of the education received, via a professional life maintained, by the sta tus attained in society all this and much more may not avail you in manifesting your true identity! Ultimately, what truly matters is what you are doing with who you are and with all you have. Throughout your entire earthly journey, you are in the process of perpetual becoming. With Gods help, always seek to be the best that you can be!

The small intimate space is like having your own home-theater, only with a caf (out front) that serves you food at your seat. It really has a European flavor with a hint of New Yorks best art film houses. Diegos father Ernesto is a legendary (and awardwinning) film maker in his native land of Mexico. The first Living Room Theaters opened in Portland, Oregon in 2006 and were the first all-digital theaters in the country. The FAU Livi file: Room Theaters opened in November of 2010. What also makes this new venture housed in the new Culture and Society Building on the FAU campus so exciting is that they are being used during the day by FAUs film study program in the School of Communication and Multimedia Studies. Students get to study film in a real cinema setting and in the late afternoon and evening the theaters open up to the public for great movies such as the recent documentary about the life of Bill Cunningham, the Russian film My Perestroika and upcoming films such as How to Live Forever and a comedy, The Trip. This is a very exciting opportunity for our faculty and film students, said Susan Reilly, director of FAUs School of Communications and Multimedia Studies. Faculty will collaborate on special film series, and students will learn how to operate cinemas, how to write film reviews and how to introduce foreign and independent film to new audiences. The theaters have 22-foot-wide screens, acoustic wall panels and the latest audio and projection technology. Its also the first and only all-digital theatre on a university campus. The European-style caf out front makes you feel like youre in a cultural oasis where you can order gourmet food, specialty coffees, beer and wine. This way movie going doesnt have to be such an austere act of individuality, it can become a social experience as well. With our freshly prepared food and wine delivered to your seat you can have the perfect night out, said Diego. We want people to come and stay a while, not just watch a movie and leave. Living Room Theaters at FAU serve students by day, residents by nightBy Diane Feen BOCA RATON Theres a bit of Europe in Boca Raton. Its not a wine bar or clothing boutique, its a state-of-the-art movie theater called Living Room Theaters. Located on the FAU campus, the four small theaters (they seat 50) are dedicated to making the experience of film watching pure pleasure. There are oversized leather chairs, great sound projection and the feeling of intimacy that you normally dont find in conventional movie theaters. And that is intentional. Were trying to change the way people go to the movies, were revamping everything, said CEO of Living Room Theaters, Diego Rimoch. We wanted it to be cozy and comfortable with great sound and picture. Most theaters just show whatever the studios send, but we wanted to shift the paradigm and be more involved in the boo-king process.

Into Eternity is one of the scariest movies Ive seen in years. Into Eternity is a documentary film by Danish multimedia artist Michael Madsen. It is only 75 minutes long in English, Finnish and Swedish languages, with subtitles, but it will stop and make you think for a long, long time. Onkalo is the name of a subterranean storage facility on a remote island in Finland. Onkalo means hiding place in Finnish, and that is what the government intends to do with the radioactive nuclear waste from its power plants: bury it in bedrock far below earth and then seal it up for all eternityor at least for 100,000 years, which is how long it takes for radioactivity to dissipate from plutonium and uranium. The huge challenge is that humans have never constructed anything that has endured even a tenth of that time. What will the world be like 100,000 years hence? Will there even be human life? Into Eternity poses very basic philosophical questions as the director films the work in progress at the gloomy, eerie site. Excavation for Onkalo began in 2003, and construction wont be finished until the 22nd century. There is a debate as to whether the site should have prominent warning signs on it, or be totally unmarked. Given the curious nature of humans, some future treasurehunter could discover the concrete seal and think great riches are contained inside. Because language and communication are always changing, would humans understand any of the current languages or international symbols? The tragic recent earthquake in Japan has driven home the very real threat of radiation sickness and death unleashed from the worlds nuclear reactors after natural disasters. Finland is only 16th in the world in nuclear power. The USA is No. 1, with France and Japan in second and third place. How safe are the current aboveground nuclear waste storScene from Into Eternityage containers? How long will they remain safe? These are very troubling questions. It is a credit to the people of Finland that they have decided to do something about it. We face serious potential problems here in America that could affect us and our offspring for all eternity. Into Eternity is the opposite of an escapist movie. It is a film that challenges, frightens, troubles and angers the viewer, yet there a spooky beauty to it, accompanied by an equally spooky soundtrack by contemporary composer Karten Fundal and the great Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius. Proceed at your own risk. Life is complicated, and growing more complex every year.

The Heritage was ac tually rescued by Priderock Capital Group LLC from another developer who began construction of a four-building complex in 2002, but ran into tough financial times, the impact of several hurricanes and the loss of its major contractor. The development was originally envisioned as Eden, a complex of condominiums. One building was completed, a sec ond was nearly done and two more sat as concrete skeletons for years while the developer tried to find cash to complete the project. Finally, when it appeared the city of Boca Raton might have to the take a wrecking ball to development located diagonally across the street from City Hall, Priderock came along and took over. Immediately work crews Heritage Apartments oer top-notch amenities, downtown Boca locationwere seen on the site.

By Commissioner Steven L. Abrams District 4 The countys emergency managers have the ability to issue alerts and notifications utilizing the Palm Beach County Regional Alert and Notifica tion System. This Internet-enabled high-speed notification system allows the county and partnering agencies (police departments, Sheriffs office, health department) the ability to make over 6,000 telephone (voice) calls per hour; send unlimited email and text messages; and a large number of blast faxes. Palm Beach County has regional alert and notication system In the past, the system has been used for numerous reasons such as emergency notifications including hazardous materials spills, hurricane evacuations, lost children, crime watch notifications, and boil water orders. Because of the systems ability to go to street/ household level, the kinds of alerts and notifications possible are unlimited based on the situation or the agencys needs. For example, the recipients can be narrowed down to a particular street, town, etc. A new and exciting component that I am pleased to announce is the residential opt-in portal which allows individuals the ability to choose the type of alerts they wish to receive (i.e., weather, en-dangered adults, and/or crime and public safety). The system can be customized to fit an individuals needs. For example, part-time residents will be able to deactivate/reactivate alerts via the Internet and all users will be able to register multiple phone numbers or email addresses. There is also a language option for Spanishspeaking residents. The system is expected to be up and working sometime in early August. For more information or signup for the notifications/ alerts, please contact Brian Duffy at bduffy@pbcgov. org or at 561-712-6327. There are also separate notifications available from local municipalities such as Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Golf, or Highland Beach. Please contact them directly for more information. Please contact me if I can be of assistance or if you have any comments and/or suggestions. I can be reached at sabrams@pbcgov.org or in my office at 561-355-2204 (West Palm Beach) or 561-276-1220 (Delray Beach).

It has been 10 years since Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida. Yet the storm still remains etched in peoples minds all across South Florida ten years after it became the costliest natural disaster in United States history with almost $30 billion dollars in damage. Recently, however, a committee called the Na tional Oceanic and Aeronautic Administration/ National Hurricane Center Best Track Committee, a team of hurricane experts, which included Herbert Saffir, a structural engineer that co-authored the Saffir-Simpson Scale, concluded that Andrew was even stronger at landfall than we realized. The experts concluded that with the latest research, Andrew had winds that were 20 mph faster at landfall in a small area in Biscayne Bay. With that, Andrew jumped to 10th all time among the Atlantic Basins strongest hurricanes with 165 mph winds. Prior to that, it was 23rd on that list. Three days prior to the ten-year anniversary of Andrews devastating impact on South Florida, NOAA issued a press release stating that after ten years, Hurricane Andrew had grown in intensity from a Category Four to a Category Five Hurricane. Hurricane Andrew was stronger than we thought, say expertsThis upgrade was based on the conclusions made by the NOAA/National Hurricane Center Best Track Committee, As a result, Andrew became only the third Category Five Hurricane to make landfall in the United States. The other two were the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, and Hurricane Camille in 1969. It also makes the storm 10th on the all-time list of most powerful hurricanes ever in the Atlantic Basin. That list includes the likes of Hurricane Allen (1980), Hurricane Janet (1955), Hurricane Gilbert (1988), Hurricane Carla (1961), Hurricane David (1979) and Hurricane Anita (1977). The impact of the recent findings and recommendations of this committee definitely adds another layer to the legacy that was Hurricane Andrew. It is just another rea son to keep Andrew firmly entrenched in our minds when it comes to memora ble hurricanes and natural disasters. It forever changed the physical, social, economic, and political landscape in Florida, and even na tionally as well. More importantly, though, Andrew along with Hugo will forever stay etched in our minds because of the technological advances in media such as television. The next major hurricane to make landfall, and have similar devastating effects on a United States coastal community will be even more memorable since the explosion of the Internet, cable, and satellite mediums since Hugo and Andrew. The next big storm will be another event that will affect everyone in this globally interconnected world we live in today.

This past Sunday my wife and I were invited to a farewell BBQ for Captain Christopher, (last name withheld), a career officer in the United States Ma rine Corps, who is leaving on another overseas assignment. The previous week we met for lunch in Boca and I said, I dont want to take up too much of your time because you have so many other things to do. Chris looked me in the eye and said, Unk Jerry, I have the whole afternoon blocked out for you. (He jokingly calls me Unk Jerry although we are not related). He explained to me that his training included how to track your time. That interested me as I sometimes feel that I didnt accomplish everything I thought I would for the day. Although I Going Backwards To Go Forwardtry to plan my day around business appointments I make, at times I dont get other things done. There must be a way of including other tasks that I want to accomplish. At the BBQ, I mentioned to Chris about the time he blocked out for me the previous week. Do you have a system that I should know about? He said, Yes, we are taught to work backwards in planning our daily activities. Working backwards? He said, What I do is write a plan for what I have to do and block it out on my time schedule. For example, my wife and I have a dinner date to say good bye to my friends at 7 p.m. tomorrow. I block out the time for the event. Its a half hour away from my house so I block out 6:30 to 7 p.m. travel time. It takes an hour to get dressed and get ready so I block out 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. to get ready, and so on and so on. By working backwards and blocking the time out you are sure not to be late for your appointment and get a realistic picture of your plans. It is interesting to note that a company like Weight Watchers does something very similar in the way they have you track your allotted points for the day. For example, if you have 29 food points for the day, you deduct whatever you consume from the 29. If your breakfast was 5 points then you have 24 left to work with and you keep deducting until you reach 0 points. They probably have found that working backwards helps you go forward towards achieving your goal. It seems that going backwards to go forward could work in a daily business schedule too. For example, if you have a 2 p.m. appointment and you know that you need to have your lunch first, subtract your travel time and lunch time from the 2:p.m. appointment to assure that you are there on time. By planning your schedule this way you can make sure that you get everything important that you planned for the day done. You will also get a realistic picture of whether you planned too much for the day and are unable to meet your commitments. Nothing can upset a client or prospective client more than being late or not being able to keep the appointment. So if you want to go forward with your clients track your time backgrounds.

Columnists The Boca Raton Tribune By: Rick Boxx Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. By Mike Gora Suppose that one evening you were arrested for driving while intoxicated, taken to jail, finger printed and had your mug shot taken. Later, based upon lack of evidence caused by a faulty machine, the charges against you were dismissed. Six months later, while you and your wife were engaged in a difficult divorce case where custody of your children was a primary issue, you Googled your own name, as people sometimes do, and found that at the top of the list was your booking picture and the intake information, that you had been arrested for drunk driving. The fact that the case had been dismissed was not mentioned. The website, Florida Mug Shots provided an 800 telephone number which suggested that if you call Florida Mug Shot, that the information posted Mug Shotsabout you would be immediately taken down upon the payment of an unannounced sum of money. There are hundreds of people arrested each day in Florida, mug shots and all, but only a few appear on the Florida Mug Shots website. It might be a valid assumption to believe that it was your wife who pointed you out to the Mug Shot bandits. That, by itself, might be enough for a judge to make a decision in your custody matter against you, for drunk driving, or, by a more thoughtful judge, against your wife for the posting of information that might be reviewed years later by one of your children when Googling his or her last name. But how about those wonderfully clever creeps who set up the website? Have they libeled you? Perhaps. In Florida, truth An editorial in the prominent daily business periodical, The Wall Street Journal, mentioned a surprising trend being practiced by some busy executives. Ac cording to the report, they are hiring a chief of staff. This consists of someone to deal directly with personnel, freeing top executives to handle broader, more corporate-level responsibilities. It seems interesting that at a time when many CEOs already are significantly isolated from their staffs, they now have resorted to appointing another gatekeeper one more layer of insulation between them and their employees. Obviously, this makes it increasingly challenging for staff to gain direct access to their superiors. This also leads to greater frustration among those who believe their needs are not being heard and their contributions to their companies are not being recognized. Time management is critical, and I suspect this is one reason for this recent tactic. However, truly effective leadership is about serving ones people, not avoiding them. When we regard having to deal with people as a problem, rather than a privilege, our priorities are seriously misaligned.Available and Accessible Leadership There are many resources to consult regarding the importance of leaders staying in close contact with those they lead, but some of the best examples are found in the Bible. For instance, in the New Testament we read, People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these (Mark 10:13-14). Anyone familiar with the biblical account of Jesus life knows He had a very clear mission and a very short time for its fulfillment. Yet He always found time for people that were clamoring for His attention, as we see in the passage above. If the Son of God was willing to be accessible to children, who were virtually regarded as non-persons during that time, should we not also remain available to our staffs? Here are some other principles from the Bible: Monitor the pulse of your staff regularly. How will you know if major problems are arising if you choose not to communicate consistently and closely with your employees? Being oblivious to significant concerns can put your organization in jeopardy. Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds the lambs will provide you with clothing, and the goats with the price of a field (Proverbs 27:23-27). Provide clear direc tion by understanding your team. When people believe their leaders know them and seek their best interests, they are inspired to do their very best work. When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order (Proverbs 28:2). Offer the same attention and concern you would like to receive. When we have pressing needs, we like to be able to communicate them to others who can be of assistance. As leaders, we should be just as responsive to the people that report to us. Do to others as you would have them do to you (Luke 6:31). Until next week! Copyright 2010, Integrity Resource Center, Inc.

It is true that you were arrested for DWI, but what good motive can there be for posting this information after your case had been dismissed. To the contrary, isnt it absolute bad faith that has been demonstrated by the creeps, when they boldly announce that they will take down the posting if you pay them money? Are we to allow our public records system, paid for by our tax dollars to be used against all tax payers for profit under these circumstances? The conduct of Florida Mug Shots is outrageous and should be stopped. Theirs is not free speech; it is the abuse of speech for profit. Florida Mug Shots has reinvented the mobs protection racket. This abuse should not be tolerated by the courts or by the Florida legislature.

Kruczek will be leaving his position as executive director of the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University to join Lynn as the new dean starting on Aug. 1. He teaches people how to build businesses and builds the entrepreneur within business students, said Lynn University President Kevin M. Ross said. He also knows how to build bridges between the academic world and industry. His proven suc cess in reaching out to the local business community is one of the main reasons we are excited to have him join us. The Falcone Center expanded its outreach to entrepreneurs both inside and outside of the university under Kruczeks leadership. The center offers a number of services to help students and members of the community start up and grow businesses. Kruczeks outreach to Entrepreneur who bridges business, academia named Lynns new business dean industry was also lauded before he was at Syracuse when he served as the executive director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at Rollins College in Orlando. Kruczek said he credits focused work with students while simultaneously reaching out to the local community as the driving force behind the improved rankings. Kruczek brings his ideas about bridging the worlds of academia and industry to build opportunities to Lynn. When I came for the interview one of the things that astonished me was the number of companies that have headquarters in Boca Raton. Its extraordinary, Kruczek said. Im looking to do the same at Lynn go out in the community and introduce us to entrepreneurs, businesses and others in the community and get them further engaged with Lynns resources. Prior to his years in higher education, Kruczek spent more than two decades in Florida businesses starting at one of Americas most storied brands, the Walt Disney Company.

All of his ventures were eventually sold as successful companies. He received his MBA and an undergraduate degree in psychology from Notre Dame. Thomas Kruczek said Boca Raton resident Nikki Giannakopulos. The plaza has a reputation of being a teenage hangout spot because of the combination of Regal Shadowood 16, McDonalds, and a new frozen yogurt place that just opened a few months ago. Now that Old Navy has opened its doors, it has helped many of the teens that would otherwise go to Town Center at Boca Raton in east Boca to purchase their clothes. Many teens now stay closer to home and purchase at the much closer Old Navy. I love it here, Its much better than having to go all the way to the mall, added Alyssa Leventaho. Not only does it help the teens, but it also helps the moms who have to buy clothes for their children but dont want to travel all the way to east Boca, Juliet Atkinson said, The location is very convenient because of my two kids that Im with all the time. Many Boca Raton teens have been hired to work at the new store, I used to work at the mall, but this one is closer to home, employee Paige Blalock told The Boca Raton Tribune. Working here is fun and exciting, and Im sure this momentum will help bring life back to this mall. r f r f nt b r f n rfnnff tbbff nt b br r r ttt r Old Navy Opens ...Continued from page 21

She has written ten books on beauty, diet and health. Flabby upper arms are an issue for many women; generally this is caused by extra fat and loose skin. Its not too easy to get rid of; but it can be done. Being overweight in general can contribute greatly to flabby arms. So, if youre flabby elsewhere, your arms could likely be the same way. Therefore, you will need to diet every day, regularly taking in fewer calories than you burn. This will help, but not right away. First you will lose weight elsewhere, even perhaps where you dont want to, before you see much effect on your arms. Whether youre overweight of not, exercising the triceps a minimum of three times a week should be your main effort in getting rid of flabby arms. Follow the following procedure: 1. Sit in a chair, toward the front. Your feet should be flat on the floor, spaced apart so that they are even with your shoulders. 2. Hold a weight in your left hand, a small, five-pound one will do (its not the weight, but the repetitions that count), and raise your left arm all the way up, so Eight steps to rm up upper arms and also get rid of the Flabthat its pointing toward the ceiling, palm facing in. Support your left arm by holding it just below the elbow with your right hand. 3. Slowly bend your left arm so that the weight in your left hand now rests behind your left shoulder. Take 3 seconds to straighten your left arm so that its pointing toward the ceiling again. Hold the position for 1 second. 4. Take 3 seconds to lower the weight back to your shoulder by bending your elbow. Keep supporting your left arm with your right hand throughout the exercise. 5. Pause, and then repeat the bending and straightening until you have done the exercise 8 to 15 times with your left arm. 6. Reverse positions and repeat 8 to 15 times with your right arm. 7. Rest; then repeat another set of 8 to 15 repetitions on each side. 8. Do three sets in a session. The number of repetitions depends on your strength level. Start slowly at 8, and then build to 15 ac cording to your increased comfort level. Youll be surprised at how quickly that happens. If you can then go to 20, all the better; the idea is to fatigue the triceps. It may take awhile, but, depending on just how flabby your arms are, you should begin to see some results in about four weeks. Note: Women, who have been extremely overweight and who have lost an extreme amount of pounds, might suffer from extreme flabbiness under their upper arms as a result of this weight loss. In such cases exercising the triceps in this fashion will not work. These women could consider investigating alterna tive methods. 1) Thermage, a radio frequency, skin-tightening procedure recently approved by the FDA only for eyelids and stomach. It is being tested now for flabby arms and excess skin but not yet approved by the FDA. 2) The new technology for surgery for the procedure to relieve drooping arms. Until next time, Love, Oleda
