She was known for her intense concern about animals, often taking injured and stray animals to her home to care for them. Christos formed Tri County at a time when it had no specific location. In the summer of 2001, the city of Boca Raton allowed Tri County to take over the former city animal shelter on Boca Rio Road. The place was in shambles at the time, and many animals died because the facility was not staffed on weekends. Christos proudly turned the place into a no-kill facility that found adoptive homes or provided one for thousands of unwanted and discarded pets. Many of them were abused and neglected. Under her leadership, the Tri-County Humane Society expanded steadily and took in abandoned pets from as far away as Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. She also organized the annual Doggie Ball fundraiser, which often raised half a million dollars or more. Tri County receives no city or county money. It subsists on donations and fundraising events. The Doggie Ball was the main annual benefit. Last month, the shelter helped Animal Planet television producers with an intervention involving a woman hoarding cats. The shelter took in 38 felines in that intervention, including seven that were pregnant and two of which had litters of seven and 10 kittens since. The episode is scheduled to air in late October. Christos kept in touch frequently with the Boca Ra ton Tribune, which carries a Pet of the Week article from Tri County. E-mails from Christos arrived as late as June. She is survived by her husband, Bill Christos; two adult sons and an adult daughter from a previous marriage. Highland Beach.Jeannette Christos dies at age 67; Founded Tri County Humane Society

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -Commissioner Steven Abrams joined local business owners July 21 to recognize Palm Beach Countys first responders from Fire Rescue, the Sheriffs Office and the Building Department for their efforts in avoiding a potential disaster after a gas leak took place June 5 at the Del Mar Village Shopping Center in Boca Raton. On behalf of the shopping centers owners and retailers, Federal Realty Investment Trust Asset Management organized this event to publicly express their gratitude for the professionalism and expertise exhibited by the first responders and employees under such extreme conditions. This could have been a disaster, and I am proud to recognize the employees from the countys Building Division, and Fire Rescue Department First responders to Del Mar Village explosions, gas leak honoredand the Sheriffs Office, said Abrams. We have an extremely talented workforce here in Palm Beach County, he added. What started as a small kitchen fire inside a crowded Sweet Tomatoes restaurant the evening of June 5 turned out to be more than what first responders expected. When the fire kept re-igniting they knew something else was going on. After at least four mini explosions inside a back wall of the restaurant, it was determined that propane gas was making its way into the building from an unknown underground source. Fire, special opera tion/hazmat crews and deputies remained on the scene for more than 31 hours until a leaking underground propane tank was safely removed, ending the gas leak mystery. The 20-year old tank still contained gas and had been leaking through a rusted area on its bottom surface. Abrams said a major explosion could have occurred if the leak hadnt been detected. Story, photos by Dale M. King BOCA RATON Three possible tax rates for 2011-2012 are on the table in Boca Raton City Hall. One is the current rate of $3.02 per $1,000, which some members of the City Council want to keep. Another is a socalled rollback rate of $3.08, which some also find tolerable. And then theres $3.15 per $1,000 valuation, a tax rate hike that few seem comfortable with. City Councilwoman Constance Scott has her eye on the $3.08 rate. And she has a plan to get there by tapping the citys reserve account for a million, and looking at our assets to determine which are needed. Shes thinking seriously about selling the municipal golf course on Glades Road, then putting that money back into the reserve ac count to replace whatever the city uses to keep next years tax rate at the $3.08 mark. To notch the $3.08 rate, she told the Boca Raton Tribune, We would have to collect the same amount of taxes as last year and maintain services. This is the most inappropriate time to raise taxes, said the councilwoman. Not at a time when we are asking other employees not to take raises. And when other taxing districts are raising their levies. She said the city has substantial-enough reserves to take a million dollar hit one time. Then, she said, Its time to look at our assets such as the golf course. To balance the budget, she said, the city needs another million dollars. It could take that from reserves, and pay it back when the golf course sells. Any additional money from the sale of the course if any -could go toward economic development, she said. She said there are a couple of other public courses in the West Boca area in addition to the citys municipal facility. It would not be hard, she indicated, for golfers to find places to play. Scott said the munici pal golf course is not a significant source of income. Boca Raton City Manager Leif Ahnell on Tuesday proposed preliminary increases in the citys property tax rate along with hikes in the fire services fee for the coming fiscal year. Scott said the hike from $60 to $80 for the fire service fee is in keeping with area communities, most of which charge more. She said Boynton Beachs fire fee is going up to $88; Pompano Beach, $111; Coral Springs, $114 to $128 and Deerfield Beach, $135. Ahnell said that under the proposed $3.15 property tax rate up from $3.02 the owner of a home as sessed at $350,000 who took the $50,000 homestead exemption would pay about $945 in city property taxes, an increase of about $39 per year. e increases, he said, would enable the city to maintain current services and avoid layos. City Council members did not vote on the measure, but Scott and Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie advocated a smaller increase to $3.08 per $1,000 of assessed property value. Without a consensus, Ahnell set the millage rate at $3.15. e gure is the maximum the city could charge for the year, and the Council could enact a lower rate when it approves a budget in September.Scott on budget: Tap reserves, sell golf course, to keep tax rate low City Councilwoman Constance Scott

Starting this past Monday, red-light cameras were activated on Lantana Road at the intersection of Jog Road and on Palmetto Park Road at the intersection of Powerline Road. Red-light cameras have been snapping traffic photos for several months in a number of cities and towns, but these are the first in unincorporated areas of Palm Beach County. These intersections were chosen based on a higher than average number of angle and left-turn accidents, said Dan Weisberg, director of the Palm Beach County Traffic Division. Warnings will be issued for the first 60 days. After the 60-day grace period, a fine of $158 will be imposed. If it is not paid within 30 days, the fine goes up to $264. Citations are issued by mail and no points will be as-First red-light runner cameras on county roadways go livesessed. A private company, American Traffic Solutions (ATS), installs, maintains and monitors the traffic cameras at no cost to taxpayers. The cameras shoot photos and video 24 hours a day of every vehicle that goes through a red light. Other county intersections that will soon have activated cameras include: Avenue at Jog Road Road at Military Trail line Road at Palmetto Park Road Worth Road at Military TrailThe Board of County Commissioners, sitting as the Child Care Facilities Board, approved on preliminary reading a series of changes to the rules and regulations governing child care facilities. They include requiring alarms to remind drivers of daycare vehicles to check for children; minimum education requirements for child-care personnel; increasing license fees; and additional guidelines for issuing provisional and probationary licenses. A vote on the bill will be taken following a public hearing on Aug. 16. The demand for reforms, particularly the alarm to alert drivers of children who may still be in the van, came after the Aug. 5, 2010 death of Haile Brockington. The 2-year-old was left for hours in the back of a hot van at Katies Kids Learning Center in Delray Beach. State Sen. Maria Sachs tried unsuccessfully this year to push through a bill that require all vans transporting more than six children to have alarms. The presumption is that an adult would have to walk to the back of the vehicle to turn off an alarm, and would likely notice if any children were left behind. Sachs said she will try again to get the measure passed in the next legisla tive session. Also at the July 19 meeting, County Commissioners took the following action: HUD approved the Palm Beach County Ac tion Plan for submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in order to receive approximately $8.9 million in CDBG, ESG and HOME entitlement grant alloca tions. Criminal Justice Commission received an evaluation report on the fourth year of the Youth Violence Prevention Project. Solar energy authorized the Economic Development Office to apply for a grant of up to $750,000 from the U.S. Department of Energy under the SunShot Initiative: Rooftop Solar Challenge to Induce Market Transformation. The program seeks to develop ways to make solar energy more accessible and affordable to citizens and the business community. New Markets Tax Credit authorized applying for $30 million in federal funds under the New Markets Tax Credit program to stimulate private investment capital that in turn will facilitate economic development and create jobs in Palm Beach County and rural counties surrounding Lake Okeechobee. Bonds approved the issuance of up to $36 million in revenue improvement bonds for the Ocean Avenue Lantana Bridge and Max Planck Florida Corp. projects. The projects were combined into one bond issue to reduce the cost of issuance. Dubois Park approved a change order with Murphy Construc tion Co. in the amount of $351,000 for construction of a water taxi shelter, three boat lifts for law enforcement and lifeguard vessels, and electrical work at Dubois Park Ma rina. Ag Reserve approved lease agreements for two county-owned parcels totaling 215 acres in the Ag Reserve. T&D Cattle Company and Exotics will lease 195 acres for row crops, and Floral Acres LLC will lease 20 acres for a containerized nursery. Water Utilities approved a bulk wastewa ter agreement (up to 1.4 million gallons per day) with the village of Palm Springs.

The 2.27 acre parcel located on the edge of the Intracoastal at 551 Palmetto Park Road had been eyed for many years by both the city and county. Instead of using the property simply as a passive park, the mayor and most City Council members want a revenue-producing use probably a restaurant to locate on the land. But city leaders want to get input from the public before going ahead with development. On the citys website, the council asks citizens and businessmen and women for letters of interest as well as input on the use of the property. The letters are due by Aug. 31. Developers would be required to keep the site primarily for public use and financially and opera tionally feasible. The website says a public hearing may be held as early as Sept. 12 on the future of Wildflower. Actually, the Wildflower Restaurant a popular eating and drinking spot remembered best as a pickup joint for men and women was located on the site long ago as far back as the end of the 20th century. Little was Boca seeks public input on how to grow the Wildower propertyBOCA RATON Local police arrested a Lake Worth man July 21 for allegedly trying to shoot his ex-girlfriend, a police report said. Public Information Officer Sandra Boonenberg said officers arrested Dalis Maurice Bell, 28, in Port St. Lucie after he allegedly fled from the scene in Boca. Reports say police responded about 7:25 a.m. to a report of a male firing a gun in an occupied residence at Mizner Court Condominiums, 6503 North Military Trail. Andrea Miller, the victim, and her boyfriend Kunta Kinte Riddick, told officers that Dalis Bell, Millers ex-boyfriend, had been calling her since shortly after 5 a.m. Miller told police she briefly spoke with Bell when he first called, but she eventually turned the ringer off on her phone and did not speak to him again. Just after 7 a.m., police said. Miller and Riddick heard a loud knocking on the front Lake Worth man charged with trying to shoot ex-girlfrienddoor, but did not open it because the peephole was covered. When they did not open the door, Bell kicked it open and entered the apartment, police said. Riddick wrestled Bell to the ground and Miller told Bell to leave. Police said that as he ran away he said, I got something for you. He went to the car and got a gun, police said. Bell then returned to the stairs leading to the apartment and as Miller was closing the front door, he allegedly fired a round from the handgun. The shot went through the door and past Millers head, but she was not injured. The driver of the Oldsmobile picked up Bell and Boca Raton detectives tracked the car to Port St. Lucie where Bell was arrested without incident by deputies of the Port St. Lucie County Sheriffs Office.

The plan didnt last long. A proposal to build residences on the property was also filed in City Hall, but never materialized. To date, a Tennessee company has shown interest in building a restaurant at the site. Bricktops has notified the city it wants to lease the Wildflower property for $400,000 per year and build a 10,000-squarefoot restaurant. Both the city and county wanted to acquire the land because of its loca tion next to the Intra coastal. Only one other venue the Bridge Hotel has direct access from the water to dining loca tions. The Bridge has two restaurants, Watercolors on the first floor, Carmens on the top level. In December 2009, the previous owner, Omega Group of West Palm Beach, LP, sold the property to the city. City Manager Leif Ahnell said the price was less than the average estimate ($8,900,000) of the two certified appraisals obtained by the city. Acquisition of the Wildflower property has been a strategic goal of the city for a number of years. During goal-setting sessions in 2009, the council established acquisition of the property as a top priority for the city.Boca Raton city leaders are looking for input from residents and business operations about what to do with the Wildflower property. The land is located at the edge of the Intracoastal just north of the Palmetto Park Road Bridge.

I know them only by reputation, having never met either. The first: Barbra Streisand. A legend in her time. I loved her in Funny Girl and Funny Lady, not so much in Meet the Fockers. But I cant deny her musical genius, though she has become a little eccentric and apparently unapproachable in recent years. Maybe this item will show a bit of her humanity. Streisand chose the Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. (which uses Brooklynized water in all of its food, beverage and bakery products) to cater the wrap party that marked the end of filming her new movie, My Mothers Curse. The celebration was held July 14. Im told that from the first moment Barbra tasted a bagel from The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co., she knew she would want to share a little bit of her hometown with the cast and crew that worked so hard on her new movie. Since the movie wrapped so early in the morning, a true Brooklyn bagel was an appropriate way to celebrate. The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co. (founded in Delray Beach two years ago) opened its Beverly Hills restaurant the night before the party to bake the bagels. The company then dispatched the fresh ba gels, deluxe cream cheese spreads and other breakfast food to arrive just in time for the festivities. Its an honor to have someone of Barbra Streisands stature and a fellow Brooklynite recognize that our bagels, coffee and food are true to her roots, said Steve Fassberg, president and chief executive officer of the company. Those of us who grew up in Brooklyn know the difference right away with just one taste. Larry King, the legendary broadcaster and good friend of Streisand, opened the Beverly Hills restaurant earlier this year. The second lady. Sarah Palin. (Remember her?) Did you know she has a degree in journalism? Well, thats what she SAYS, but you know about politicians and the truth. Its nice that she has a journalism degree (that makes two of us). But she recently said shed like to teach members of the mainstream media a thing or two when it comes to producing quality reporting and news coverage. I want to help them she said in a taped interview for the Christian Broadcasting Networks David Brody. I have a journalism degree, she said. That is what I studied. I understand that this cornerstone of our democracy is a free press is sound journalism. I want to help them build back their reputation and allow Americans to be able to trust what it is that theyre reporting. OK, Sarah, come on down. Lets sit together and you can teach me about journalism. Ive only been in the newspaper business for 40-some years, so Im sure I need to hear your wonderful advice. Let me tell you one thing, though. A lot of people who pass themselves off as journalists really arent. Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck were disc jockeys. Nancy Grace was a prosecutor. Dr. Drew is a psychologist. Who, exactly, are you talking about? I consider myself a mainstream journalist. I have never written anything about you, about your political gaffs when you were running for office; not your TV show where you beat fish to death and shot elegant bucks to death. No, youve gotten a break from me, so get off my case. If you think me or my writing needs to be straightened out, give me a call. Otherwise, just chill out up there in Alaska.

By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER For every mistake you make, for every task you leave unfinished, as you face insurmountable barriers, and for so much more, you can easily find and effec tively apply the necessary corrective measures. But this can happen only after you first acknowledge your deficiency and need. If you feel so self-sufficient, chances are you wont ever seek help, or make amends on anything. For those rea sons, you will not reap any benefits either. Dont allow personal pride to prevent yourself from seeking the advice or counsel from others which, otherwise, can solve your puzzle or relieve your misery on several possible fronts! Remember always, all you attempt and achieve in life need not be perfect. In fact, true perfection cannot Applying Corrective Measuresbe attained on earth, though in all you do you should still strive for the very best! If you find yourself on the wrong road, or moving in the direction that wont take you to where you desire to go, you have the opportunity to make a U-turn, or to take alternate routes as the corrective measure, so as to lead you forward. Furthermore, if you catch any illness, you need not remain sick indefinitely; you have the opportunity to consult a physician, take prescribed medications, even have surgery if nec essary, among several possible alternative options. Not to be forgotten also, if you are doing a mediocre job on anything, if your relationships are not what they can and should be, you can improve all that, and secure far greater satisfaction than if you had left things the way they were! In personal interactions, in family relations, and in the execution of any task whether great or small, improvement is an ever-present choice worth making. What is worth keeping is also worth repairing and preserving: a house, a vehicle and, most of all, a life! Are you certain that you are a better self today than you were yesterday? Are you continuously progressing in life, based on guidelines which ensure your proper advancement?

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Skip Sheffield BOCA RATON -There is no public pool in Pearl City. Boca Ratons historic minority neighborhood has a recreation center and basketball courts, but if you want to swim you are out of luck. For this reason, there are fewer proficient swimmers among the young people of Pearl City and other low-income areas compared to more affluent suburban neighborhoods. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Africa-American children cant swim, according to Associated Press, a figure that is nearly twice that of white children. Black children 14 and younger are 2.6 times more likely to drown than white children of the same age group according to USA Swimming. PROPEL (People Reaching Out to Provide Education and Leadership) is a Boca Raton-based nonprofit organization dedicated to servicing economically-deprived and at-risk youth in Palm Beach and northern Broward Counties. PROPEL regularly plans programs for children during summer vaca tion, and executive director Tolliver Miller reasoned a learn-to-swim program could be both valuable and worthwhile for its participants. Miller researched organizations offering group swim lessons and he found the YMCA of Boca Raton was both the most convenient and most cost-efficient. Miller contacted all PROPEL members, and 15 youngsters responded in the affirmative for the inaugural classes. We try to work with everyone in the community, said Jennifer Daratany, aquatic director at the YMCA. The PROPEL kids took a two-week course called WMCA Youth Progressive Swim Lessons. The emphasis is on stroke development. They really seemed to enjoy it. The kids ranged in age from age 6 to 15. Some of the older children later took part in a camping week at the Gulf Stream Council Boy Scout campgrounds in Tequesta. We were concerned about the kids in the water on the camping trip, said Miller. It was a lot better this year than last, which was our first time at the Boy Scout camp. The kids were a lot more confident. When pressed, Miller, 43, who grew up in rural Louisiana, admits he is not much of a swimmer.YMCA and PROPEL Put Kids in the Swim This Summer I dont get in the water very much, he admits. But that doesnt mean the kids couldnt or shouldnt enjoy swimming. We just want them to be safe and wellprepared. For more information about PROPEL call 561955-8553 or go to www. propelyourfuture.org.

Whelchel joined plaza and Woolbright officials Tuesday to take part in Boca Is Nice Day at Glades Plaza. It was a day for letting another person have the parking spot that took you 10 minutes to find; inviting the person behind you in line at Starbucks to pass you by or simply smiling and saying hello to a stranger. Boca Is Nice Day was conceived to counter a survey done by Foursquare, a social media group that concluded Boca Raton was the 12th Rudest City in the World (based upon the number of curse words used upon check-ins). Glades Plaza recently launched its official Foursquare page with several incentives for their Mayor including two reserved parking spots plus freebies and discounts at participating retailers and restaurants. It is our hope that Boca Is Nice Day extends beyond our shopping center and throughout the city, said Enrique Kaufer, vice president of marketing and business development for Woolbright Development, developers of Glades Plaza, who joined Whelchel at the event. To deem our city rude, Glades Plaza asks Boca citizens to Have a nice day based on usage of curse words, misses the point, in our opinion. The fact is that Bocas ranking on Foursquare shows there are many people in the area who use mobile technologies. Manchester, England, took the dubious top spot in the survey, while Boca Raton's southern neighbor, Miami, checked in at No. 18. Up the road to the north, Jacksonville ranked No. 20.

The emerging fashion guru has been impressing South Florida audiences with her big talent and big heart! Based in Fort Lauderdale, her fashion-forward styles for women and men are garnering praise for their individual flair and attention-to-detail, while her philanthropic efforts are winning her fans who admire her dedication to community causes. Driven by a desire to design, a young Kesi, growing up in Jamaica, received the seed money to start her first business from her mother. Her career began with a single rack of clothing and eventually grew to become Kame Collections in 1997, a clothing boutique located in the heart of Kingston. However, Kesis ambitions grew to be much bigger than her one store. She was determined to become a household name and she knew she needed to move the United States to pursue her dream. After graduating from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, she dove into designing under a private label; designing for stores such as Cache, Nordstrom, Forever 21, Arden B among others. But working behind the scenes was not fulfilling her ambitions. She wanted to be in control of her own destiny, so she decided to branch out on her own. Kesi formed Azuri Fashions design studio in 2002; her first collections K-Sport and Kesi Couture were launched at her own boutique and then expanded into the Bob Marley Store and Marmalade Boutique in South Beach. Azuri fashions, reflected an individual sense of style and specialized in custom designs for artist/models and others seeking a unique style. Under Azuri fashions, Kesi hosted fashion shows for the Gildas Club (Cancer Society), Burger King and Decco Records. She has also designed clothing for artists under IHM and Poeboy Records. Kesi designed Miss Jamaicas dress for the World Pageant in 2003. Following the success of the couture line, Azuri Fashions assumed the name of Kesi Couture in 2004. Her line offers a variety of standout looks that fashionistas can wear for both casual and couture occasions many include hand painted designs, exquisite silks, lace and other embellishments. And for men, her ties are truly artistic creations with a sense of fun and whimsy. You can view her latest looks at www.kesicase.com and her next charitable endeavor will be participating in the Multiple Sclerosis Foundations 25th Anniversary Gala, where her latest swim collection will be fea tured on statue models.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL rf ntnb ntff n nnf brffrfn rnrn ntnrnt A Fine Madness Called Crazy, Stupid Love Is there one perfect soul mate for every person? A lot of people think so. They are called incurable romantics. Crazy, Stupid Love is a very funny romantic comedy that has fun with the notion there is that perfect person, and if you find him or her, you should hang on for dear life and never give up. That incurable romantic is named Cal Weaver and he is played by Steve Carrell, who also co-produces. Cals soul mate Emily, with whom he fell in love at age 15, is played by Julianne Moore. Both Cal and Emily Weaver have good jobs and two great kids who live at home and another who has already left the nest. What could possibly go wrong? In Dan Fogelmans clever script, plenty. Fogelman is a bit of a Cinderella story, having struck it rich first as an unknown with the surprise hit Cars. He is now one of the hottest young screenwriters in Hollywood. Fogelman has a way of stating simple, obvious truths in a very funny, ironic way. Without warning Emily drops a bombshell: she wants a divorce. She has lost sight of what she had and lost her head over a snarky co-worker. Kevin Bacon is quite adept at playing snarky. His David Lindhagen is a jerk of the first order and a perfect foil for the impossibly pure, squeaky clean Cal, who has been with only one woman in his life. Twenty-five years of marriage, and you have nothing to say? Emily demands her shell-shocked mate. True, most guys tend to clam up in this kind of emotional situation, and Cal is more tightly-jacketed than average. Jumping out of a car is pretty extreme, but here quite funny. In real life it would be hard to imagine some studly dude noticing the morose Cal nursing drinks in a bar every night and deciding to do a Henry Higgins makeover on a complete strang er. That is just what happens in this fantasy, directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the same guys who directed the gay romance I Love You Phillip Morris. Jacob (Ryan Gosling) is a chick magnet with killer pickup techniques. He decides to impart his ways with women on the hapless Cal, and bit-by-bit it works. This gives Carrell ample opportunity to do his bumbling geek schtick that he honed in -YearOld Virgin, Dinner for Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid LoveSchmucks and Dan in Real Life. The funniest of these bits co-stars Marisa Tomei as a spitfire eighth grade teacher. Cal is not the only incurable romantic in the story. So is his 13-year-old son Robbie (Jonah Bobo), who is smitten with his 17-yearold babysitter Jessica (Ana leigh Tipton). Also discovering her possible soul mate is Cals eldest daughter Hannah (Emma Stone), a junior lawyer. This is shaping up as the summer of Emma Stone, and once again she and her gorgeous blues eyes acquit themselves well. Crazy, Stupid Love is not going to change anyones notion of romantic love, but it may help those who have been romantic saps recognize and laugh at themselves. Three stars

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL There were a lot of us out there. We were born between 1947 and 1965 and are formally known as Baby Boomers. We have huge marketing clout, spendable income and remember the names (and hairstyles) of all the original Beatles. It is also what makes us the perfect target market for health products and services. That is probably the reason that Boomer Times & Senior Life Magazine held their 6th Sizzlin Boomer Expo at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. It was also the rea son I was thrilled to see what people, products and services would enhance my boomer existence. I wanted to bathe in the sights and sounds of Around the World cruises and pick up some uplifting vibes about nuclear medicine or meditation mantras. But I was surprised to see that the majority of companies hawking their wares were health related. Because age is just a number I rarely evaluate my stance in life by my numerical sequence. Perhaps that is why I was a bit surprised when someone stopped me in the aisle and asked if I had planned for end of life yet. To be perfectly honest, this life seems a bit insurmountable to me, so until I get it right (in the middle) I cant be bothered thinking about the end of it. But, I did not refuse the microfiber glass holder given to me by the Neptune Society. If you arent familiar with the Neptune Society, then youre either young or not familiar with the burning issues of cremation. Luckily there were so many other booths to check out that inspired living that I left the subject of death to chance. But I didnt get too far before I was face to face with the lovely people from Whitehall of Boca Raton. Although I think this rehab facility is top notch, it is just a few steps from the last cornerstone of life. Prozac anyone? One of my favorite booths was Bubbies Health. Not because I needed their wares (luckily) but because it made me realize what a lucky boomer I am. Bubbies Health sells things like Prevail and Poise (adult diapers) as well as bed rails, bath seats and large towel wipes (I got some to clean my counters). They were not only giving out lots of free samples, but they did it with a genuine interest in our needs (a husband would have been nice). Bubbies Health also offers free discreet delivery (but I doubt you can get a side of fries with that). The best part of strolling the aisles of this Boomer convention is that many of the vendors were raffling off gifts and prizes. Feisty Megan Mc Cracken was hawking a super senior exercise set that came with a box, balance and lift DVD (for the butt we assume) and a Super Senior Power walk CD set. She was raffling off a prize as well, but she seemed more interested in selling me her power walk CD set with weights (that my thinning bones do need). Not there to shop I was merely taking in the sights and sounds of my boomer heritage. But my heritage seemed most fitted for the GL Home booth. It was there that attractive sales people were touting the benefits of a lifestyle fit for a royal boomer (not the Will and Kate type I assume). Their brochure shows a list of sold-out communities (there are many) and dazzles readers with pictures of glorious clubhouses at places like Canyon Tails, Marbella Lakes and Valencia Reserve. When I told the woman their prices are bit over my level head, she replied, Youre buying a lifestyle. OK so I couldnt afford the GL Homes lifestyle, but I could afford to spend some time (because of their summer specials) at the Brazilian Court Hotel and Beach Club in Palm Beach. The sales woman was gracious and offered help in finding me the perfect scenario for a quick and easy get-away with pampering and pleasure (husband please). They have a Florida resident rate and the historic hotel underwent a $45 million renovation. The Miami Herald was there (you could get a nifty umbrella if you subscribe) as well as The Palm Beach Opera (the season starts in December), the Duncan Theatre (duncantheatre.org), The Pantry of Broward (they feed low income seniors) and Red Cap, a company that will pick you up or drive you anywhere in your own car. It is good to know that our herd of elders is being heard. But, with 60 being the new 40 the best part of the expo was the exercise walking up and down the aisles. The friendly banter between those selling and those just spinning the consumer wheel for prizes was a bit of a thrill for someone like me who doesnt find noisy smoky nightclubs an exciting rite of passage.By Diane Feen Boomer or Bust

ShermanTMEmail your Business News, promotions and acknowledgements to Chris Catoggio at: email@example.com. What makes a salesperson successful? Not every person is cut out to be a successful salesperson. Some people simply do not have the right combination of character traits and behavior patterns, without which a career in sales would pose only frustra tions, anxiety, and a lack of fulfillment. However, for those with the right chemistry, the opportunities for job satisfaction and personal growth in sales are unlimited. To be successful, a person must possess, or be able to adopt, a set of characteristics and behavioral patterns which are essential. Many of these characteristics may be cultivated and refined by conscientious application in on-the-job training. Even a topnotch salesperson or manager is constantly perfecting her or his technique, evaluating their performance, and ascertaining the clients needs and wants. In my experience I have found that suc cessful salespeople have a combination of the following qualities: Empathy Do you find yourself adjusting to another persons moods and Characteristics of Successful Salespeoplebehavior, modifying your own position to accommodate another viewpoint? Or, do you find it difficult to anticipate another persons actions or to accept an opinion which is in conflict with your own? We define empathy as, listening to another person attentively and understanding their thoughts, emotions and feelings, and adjusting your own moods and behavior accordingly, (Sherman&Hertz). It is not to be misconstrued as sympathy. If the salesperson can elicit the needs of the customer on both a business and personal level, she or he can deal with those needs realistically. Empathy is one of the most important keys to successful selling. Ego drive -When a client turns you down do you feel angered, dismiss the failure with a shrug of the shoulder or are you driven to overcome the obstacles to your success? A professional salesperson is success driven in a controlled way. She or he bounces back quickly from the failure and looks forward to the next sales presentation as an opportunity to restore self confidence to make up for the past shortcomings. We can say that ego drive pushes the salesperson for constant achievement and self-fulfillment. Much like the champion tennis player who is badly beaten in the first set, and bounces back in the next two to win the match. Integrity -Integ rity carries a very special meaning in the business world. It defines ones character and reputation in the marketplace, forms the backbone of that persons credibility, and is a major factor in gaining the trust and admiration of all who you work with. Integrity in the business world is simply, describing things as they are and making commitments stand. What you say is what you do. You are judged on your accomplishments and whether you live up to your promises. Creativity -Although it doesnt seem like a trait that would make for an effective salesperson, it is important because it develops your own style of selling. Do you do things in an unquestioning manner, accepting a course of action because, thats the way weve always done it? Or do you perceive the way a situation is being handled, then ask yourself, How can I do it better? Emotional maturity -The buying and selling process is an emotional one. Do you get carried away with your emotions under stress or in the throes of a difficult decision or are you able to accept strain and conflict as a normal part of your working day? Clients are frequently and understandably insecure about making their decisions. When a client says something that annoys you, dont take it personally. Internalizing and reacting to negative comments is a sign of immaturity and there is no room for this in the sales arena. Sellers do not have the luxury of overreacting. Although these traits are essential you must love what you are doing to reach any plateau of suc cess.

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 Q: My wife and I have been engaged in the divorce process for about eight months. Both sides have hired forensic accountants, and both of us have top notch, expensive legal representation. Weve been married for 20 years. The lawyers have explained all the ins and outs to both of us. I have a really good paycheck, as a commission salesman of medical equipment, but do not have a great deal of savings. My wife has not worked in five years, but used to be a working attorney herself, a tax attorney with a Masters in Tax from NYU. We have a mediation coming up in a couple of weeks. She seems to be focused on keeping our house which, financially, has turned into a white elephant. She will do about anything to stay in the house which is in a break even position. I could care less about the house and think we should walk away from the no-equity nightmare. On the other hand I want to keep all the money that we have in a brokerage You Be The Judgeaccount in my name only and preserve it for sending the girls to college. She wants to divide it, and I know that in three years when the two are going to go to a college in the Ivy League or some other pric ey place, her half will be a vague thought and I wont have enough to help. My lawyer told me that there was no way for me to preserve the money for college, that it would be split. Her lawyer has told her that there is no way for her to hold onto the house, as it was too big, and too costly. Both of the lawyers said that the judge could not do what each of us wants the most. Any thoughts? A: A judge is not the only one who can decide your case, you can. One major benefit of mediation and settlement is that you and your wife are not as limited as to the solution to your problems as the judge is. Any solution that the two of you come up with will be all right with the judge as long as you and your wife are not conspiring to do something illegal. Many have considered that Biblical principles and teachings have been outdated by the discoveries of modern science. It is scientism (the extension of scientific theories to a supposedly complete philosophy of life and meaning) not true science that has been in conflict with Scripture. In many instances, instead of discrediting the Bible, Scripture has anticipated modern scientific discoveries. In the field of geology, numerous verses imply amazingly accurate statements concerning processes and systems not discovered until relatively recently. 1. Principle of Isos tasy According to the freedictionary.com isostasy is the equilibrium in the Earths crust, in which an elevated part in one area is counterbalanced by a depressed part in another. Isostasy exists because the Earths crust is relatively light compared to the denser mantle over which it lies, and therefore behaves as if it is floating. Areas of the Earths crust rise or subside to accommodate added load (as from a glacier) or diminished load (as from erosion), so that the forces that elevate landmasses balance the forces that depress them. The concept of isostasy was discovered in the late 1880s yet Isaiah wrote The Rocks Cry Outaround 700 B.C Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand... and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure... weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance (Isa. 40.12) 2. The shape of the earth: a sphere Almost every child today knows the earth is round, yet this general knowledge and belief was not common knowledge for centuries. The now fa mous picture of our glorious blue planet taken from outer space clearly shows the earth as a giant sphere yet we now know that the earths circumference and diameter differ because its shape is classified as an oblate spheroid or ellipsoid, instead of a true sphere. This means that instead of being of equal circumference in all areas, the poles are squished, resulting in a bulge at the equator, and thus a larger circumference and diameter there. (geog raphy.about.com) Again, contrary to the thinking of Isaiahs day or the generally held position of numerous ancient cultures Isaiah records It is He who sits above the circle of the earth... (Isa. 40.22) 3. Rock erosion Frequently in everyday conversation we use phrases like solid as a rock or rock solid to commend an individual as being stable or dependable. Mountains and rocks have often been metaphors of things that last forever. We now know they dont last forever and in fact are part of a cycle as well. The concept of the rock cycle is attributed to James Hutton (1726), the 18th-century founder of modern geology. The main idea is that rocks are continually changing from one type to another and back again, as forces inside the earth bring them closer to the surface (where they are weathered, eroded, and compacted) and forces on the earth sink them back down (where they are heated, pressed, and melted). So the elements that make up rocks are never created or destroyed instead, they are constantly being recycled. (www.learner.org/ interactives/rockcycle/dia gram.html) While this is a relatively recent discovery, Job, the oldest book of the Bible recorded these words: But as a mountain falls and crumbles away, and as a rock is moved from its place; as water wears away stones... (Job 14.18) All the aforementioned scriptures were not meant to be scientific statements but they do accurately reflect the reality of the phenomena. The fact that they are so accurate at a time when the prevailing ideologies were so erroneous merits careful consideration.In this case there seems to be a reasonable conclusion that gets each of you what you want in the long run. It will take a little sacrifice and hard work for both of you. She wants to keep the house for herself and the children. Let her. Pay a bit too much a month up front to her so that she can keep the house while shes re-starting her law career. Within a two or three year time a member of The Bar with a Master in Tax can find a job, even in this economy. She may come to her senses when the time for her to take over the mortgage payments is approaching, but she may not be able to handle the load by herself. On the other hand she can, by settlement agreement, give you control over the only marital asset, the brokerage account, with the limited use of that account designated for the twins college educa tions. Hopefully when the undergraduate education has been completed there will be some left over for each of you.

When was the last time you said to yourself, Its 7PM, I need to listen to this radio show? Well, Jason Bailey, president and founder of Sun Ra dio Network is singlehandedly fighting all the people who say ra dio is dead. Bailey, a 34 year old entrepreneur from Clinton, MA, started his career in the broadcast radio industry at only 17 years of age. In 1994, Bailey became the arena announcer for the AHLs Worcester IceCats. In 1995, Central Massachusetts power house talk station, WTAG, hired him as the executive producer of their talk programs. Bailey founded Sun Radio Network in 2008. Sun Radio Network is a national radio syndica tion and sales company. Sun Radio creates radio programs, and places them on stations all over the country. With over 3,000 radio Sta tions covering 99% of the U.S. population; Sun Radio Network is innovative, and cost effective. Bailey loves radio so much that he has partnered up with the Boca Raton Childrens Museum to create the Discovering Radio program. Discovering Radio will have radio programs for the youth that will roam the grounds of the Childrens Museum. With this partnership with the Boca Ra ton Childrens Museum, Bailey wants to change the way the youth listen to radio, My 11 year old daughter doesnt even know what a radio is anymore, I want to change that. To me, it is very important to get kids involved and interested. The Discovering Radio program, I hope, will bring this timeless medium back to youth said Bailey. According to Bailey, the radio industry is shooting itself on the foot and he want to change all that, he wants to create a fresh new programming that the youth of this day-in-age with all their technology will appreciate. Pandora is a game changer, admitted Bailey, they are exactly what the youth today wants, music and a lot of it. They [the youth] dont need to sit in a car and listen to the same song over and over again anymore. Thats what this generation is about and how can we tell them what they like? continued an enthusiastic Bailey, How can we say that we know what kids want to hear on the radio when we are just sitting in our corporate offices in our suits? In Discovery Radio, the kids will be in control. The kids will be the ones that will decide what they want to listen to and when they want to listen to it.

She has written ten books on beauty, diet and health. There are millions of dollars spent very year on "Trying To Get Rid Of Cellulite." Here are the hard facts on what can, or cannot, be done.once and for all!! One of the questions Im asked frequently by friends and customers concerns cellulite. Thats only natural, since it is estimated that 85% of women develop it. So, since its such a pervasive question, heres the total scoop on the subject. What is Cellulite? Simply stated, cellulite is fat, the same as any other fat on your body. The term refers to the dimpled appearance of the skin seen in areas of the hips, thighs, and buttocks. It is more commonly seen in women because of the way a womans body distributes fat. It may become more preva lent at times because of a hormonal surge, like during pregnancy or puberty. It is an increased ratio of fat cells to lean body mass, formed by a system-wide failure to eliminate fibrous proteins that accumulate between the cells. Men are less likely to have cellulite because they have thicker skin, which is much better at hiding the fat beneath. So what can be done? Cellulite: What Can, or Cannot, be Done to Eliminate it...There are plenty of cellulite treatments. They are listed below but, I tell you in advance, some are expensive; none are perma nent, except, perhaps, one that has not yet been proven safe. Some dont work at all and there are some very temporary ones. As with anything else, you must exercise caution, since some of the unproven treatments could be potentially dangerous. Exercise and Diet Getting regular exercise, eating a healthy diet lower in calories, and maintaining a normal weight may work as a cellulite treatment for some people. Experts suggest a whole foods diet with less complex carbohydrates and sugars than usually recommended; large amounts of filtered water; decreasing fats to below 20% of the total diet, and avoiding as much as possible animal fats and processed fats. But exercise and diet, while it can help, wont necessarily solve the problem completely. Self-massage of the affected area regularly might help and can be done easily at home. After massage let gravity help by propping your legs up against a wall or over a chair and massage, very lightly, the crease formed by the legs and the abdomen in order to open the channels for the elimination of those fibrous proteins loosened by the exercise and massage. Creams There are many creams on the market as cellulite treatments. Most are over the counter and a few are by prescription. Most of them have some fancy sounding ingredient, like prehistoric mud and the pollen of the most rare Alpine weed, etc. Doctors say these creams may work for some people. Any results, however, are temporary, and the best ones are those containing theophylline or caffeine, which some studies have shown cause fat cells to dissolve. A combination of a cream, with ingredients that help dissolve the cellulite, and the self-massage of the areas, with the cream, may help in releasing the proteins for elimination while also reducing the fat cells surrounding the proteins. The massage increases circulation which is necessary to carry away the released fats and proteins. Read More online!

This tribute to her was written by one of Jeanettes friends and reflects the feelings of many who knew her. If there is a heaven, it's certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them. Pam Brown To all of us who knew and loved Jeannette Christos, founder and executive director of Tri County Humane Society in Boca Raton and angel to all abused, neglected, and unwanted animals, we know that you are now with so many of your beloved four-legged friends in heaven. Your life was truly interwoven with theirs. You made a promise to them when you founded Tri County Humane Society as a no-kill shelter more than 20 years ago that you would provide a sanctuary of love, caring, and safety for the most unwanted animals in our community. You worked tirelessly, day and night, to save as many discarded four-legged souls as you could, to ease their fears with your undying love, to shower them with tenderness and compassion to show them the best Tri County Humane Society founder, animal lover Jeannette Christos passes away of what humans have to offer. Along your journey, you saved tens of thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens from newborns who could not yet open their eyes to the aged and infirm who, after years of service and love, found themselves discarded at your doorstep. You gave hope to the hopeless, bringing them back to life both physically and emotionally before lovingly sending them away. To those who no one wanted, you offered permanent shelter within the loving walls of Tri County, creating a peaceful refuge until they crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Your mission was not the attainment of financial riches, accolades, or fame. It was the satisfac tion of knowing that you were doing everything in your power to help the most helpless among us, to give a voice to the voiceless. To say you were a friend to animals does not begin to capture your lifes work. You were their angel. You were their safe haven in a world that shunned them just for being born. For the thousands that ended up at your doorstep scared and broken, you changed their lives with your love and compassion, finding miracles every day amidst the heartache. And, in the process, you changed our lives. Words cannot describe how much we love and respect you, and how much we will miss you. But now that you have finished your work here and crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be with your four-legged friends, rest assured that your legacy will live on in the hearts and souls of every animal that will receive a chance to live and be loved because of you. From all of them and from all of us who pledge to continue your dream, we say, Thank you, dear friend. We love you. Jeannette Christos, left, with Sharon DiPietro at the 2011 Doggie Ball in March.

Forbes was named interim coach last year, replacing Alex Morales, who resigned in December 2010 to accept a chief scouting position with the Washington Nationals organization. Forbes was an assistant coach under Morales from 2005 to 2010, and in 2011 led the Panthers to a 26-20 overall record (12-12 in the Southern Conference.) It is an honor to coach the baseball team here at Palm Beach State. The program has a tradition of excellence and I look forward to guiding our players in the right direction, said Forbes. We have a solid group of returning players for 2012. The combination of these returnees and an outstanding recruiting class should make for an exciting season next year. Forbes grew up in Boynton Beach and graduated from Atlantic High School in 1988. He lettered in three varsity sports, swimming, basketball and baseball, and was named the Athlete of the Year by the Boca/Delray News in 1987. Forbes played catcher at nearby Palm Beach Atlantic University. In 1989, he was named to the NAIA District 25 AllAcademic Team. He began his coaching career in 1990 at Florida Atlantic University as an assistant coach under Kevin Cooney. In the two years Forbes was at FAU, the team was ranked in the top ten in the country. In 1994, Forbes was hired as the head baseball coach at Palm Beach Atlantic University. During his nine seasons at the helm, Forbes amassed an overall record of 244 wins and 198 losses. The Sailfish qualified for the postseason six times, and were ranked as high as eighth in the NAIA national baseball poll. In the past two seasons Forbes has served as pitching coach at Northwood University under the tutelage of Coach Rick Smoaliak. The two years that Forbes was at Northwood the Seahawks had a record of 73-43.

Beginning with football, we are trying to incorporate all aspects of high school sports. From the actual games, to the students in the stands, even to the parents, everyone has a place in high school sports. Our next issue will have a preview to the football season. All six schools season schedules will be up, top players to watch in the area will be the focus of stories and well off a lookout on what to expect from each school.

Unfortunately, its unknown Paulinho le Petit on Loan with Los Angeles GalaxyEduardo Coudet Suspended Six GamesFort Lauderdale Strikers midfielder Eduardo Coudet has been suspended an additional five games without pay beyond his mandatory one game red card suspension by the NASL Disciplinary Committee. Coudet was sent off in the 74th minute of Fort Lauderdales 3-1 defeat in Puerto Rico on Wednesday for violent conduct. The straight red card offense occurred moments after a penalty kick had been awarded to the Islanders. Coudet, who did not commit the foul which led to the penalty kick, confronted the referee in an aggressive manner, which included physical contact. The league has an obliga tion to protect our match officials, and as a result Mr. Coudet will serve the appropriate suspension for his actions which have no place whatsoever in our game. said NASL Commissioner David Downs. Coudet will be unavailable for action until September 3rd when Fort Lauderdale hosts Montreal. Well done Coudet Just when the Strikers needed you the most with the team needing help in the midfield position, you go and make a fool of yourself. Congratulations, youre lucky you arent suspended for the rest of the season. Ed 57when le Petiti will not play for the Galaxy. Galaxys head man, Bruce Arena, has said that le Petit will workout with the squad for the remainder of the week. The length of the contract is immaterial. It can be extended, or it can be dropped at any time. The Galaxy are just looking at him and see if hes a player who can fit in with the current squad. This is a terrific opportunity not only for le Petit who will now play with players like Juninho, David Beckham, and Landon Donovan, but also for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to showcase the talent that the NASL has. I expect le Petit to do well in L.A. this is an exciting time for not only Strikers fans, but also for Galaxy fans. Le Petit is more of a defensive midfielder, who has great vision and awareness on the pitch. He is a player with an uncanny ability to get the ball to playmakers and create opportunities to put up goals on the scoreboard.

I missed my golden opportunity to meet her at that time. I pull hooked the ball on the opposite side of the fairway. Maybe well meet a couple holes down. She has to come back down number 3, and I should be teeing off number 2-tee box at the same time. Maybe Ill impress her with a beautiful drive, straight and long down the fairway. Worst-case scenario will be another long hook out into her fairway this time. I wonder if shell stop and watch me fly the trees, hit-Keep the yellow golf shirt in the bagting back to the green? Here we go. I see that her drive on number 3 landed left side of the fairway. I better tee this puppy up and let it fly. If Im going to impress her, now is the time. With this bright yellow golf shirt on, there is no way that she will not notice me. Im sure Ill stand out. This is my golden opportunity. Great golf shot happening here! It is flying way out of sight! I see her looking over as the ball lands and rolls. Wow! I think I did it! All I have to do is proudly walk down the middle of the fairway. I feel like a pro with this yellow golf shirt on, taking the turn at the Masters. Now all I have to do is keep a straight face, as if its routine, and walk down the left side of the middle. That would bring me a little closer, without having to yell, to say hi. I better figure out quickly what to say, just in case she compliments me on a nice golf shot. Oh great! I hit it so far. The foursome ahead of me is yelling and waving. I completely forgot to wait until they were out of reach. How embarrassing is this going to be? I am the only golfer in my group out on the fairway. All my golf buddies are on the other side of the fairway. How do you try to impress someone with a great golf shot, only to find out, the shot almost hit someone? This is not good. Whats even worse? I think her parents are walking my way. Great! Lets meet the parents! Perfect timing! My buddies need a hand on the other side of the fairway to look for a lost ball! Its a good thing I carry an extra shirt, just in case it rains. I think I should change this bright yellow golf shirt on the opposite side of the fairway. First impression is going to have to wait.
