The labs, which will be located in the new Marine Science Building, will house the Robertson Coral Reef Research and Conservation Program. The Robertson coral reef program was made possible by a $1 million gift in 2004 from the Banbury Fund, formally led by William Robertson, Johns brother. The Banbury Fund is a philanthropic foundation established by Charles and Marie Robertson and is now led by Katherine Robertson-Ernst, Johns sister. The Robertson brothers became involved with Harbor Branch in 1999. They were particularly interested in supporting coral reef research, due to the noticeable decline in coral reefs in the Florida Keys. It was this interest that inspired Harbor Branch to use the Banbury gift to fund its coral reef program. This program is a testament to the vision of Bill Robertson and his family, said Dennis Hanisak, Ph.D., director of Harbor Branchs Center of Marine Ecosystem Health. The support of the Banbury Fund has been instrumental to building a worldclass research program and enabling a number of truly important conservation initiatives. The Robertson Program is dedicated to understanding and preventing losses in shallow and deep water coral communities that result from both natural and man-made causes. Robertson Program funds also allowed Harbor Branch to hire two biological scientists whose expertise has significantly increased the productivity of the coral reef program. The Robertson funds are making a significant difference at Harbor Branch, said Margaret Leinen, Ph.D., executive director of Harbor Branch. Our researchers are identifying and protecting previously unknown deep water coral reefs and developing new ways of assessing coral health. We also are able to foster the development of new scientists who will devote their careers to this important research.Get ready to revel! Boca Bacchanal dates announcedBOCA RATON -Cheers!

Emily A. Kinzler Administrative Assistant Bristol Properties InternationalI got home about noon Monday. As I fiddled through my keys outside the door, I could hear my dog, Peanut, inside. His yelps and barks meant he knew I was there. When I opened the door, he came bounding down the stairs and onto the arm of the couch. I leaned over and took him in my arms. I hugged him a little harder that day. I was very happy he was there and he seemed to share the feeling. I had just arrived home from the funeral of Jeannette Christos, a wonderful friend to my wife and me; a selfless woman who gave her life to save the lives of neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Jeannette Christos founded Tri County Humane Society 20 years ago. The organization that serves Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties has been located in the former Boca Raton city animal shelter since 2001. Tri County is different from most shelters. Animals there are not euthanized as a matter of course. It is a no kill shelter as Jeannette demanded it be -and that is why my wife and I are longtime supporters. Its hard to believe the woman with what appeared to be boundless energy is gone. At age 67, she succumbed to cancer quickly, Im told. I guess it is true. I can still find emails from Jeannette from as recently as June. Peanut, did not come from Tri County, but we believe he may have been a puppy mill dog something Jeannette hated. A few years ago, she brought in more than 30 dogs from a puppy mill in Missouri that was closed down. And after Hurricane Katrina, she and Tri County workers went to New Orleans to save the animals left behind when their owners died or were removed from the area. I remember seeing one of the dogs. He had a worn leather collar around his neck with the name of his owner on it. Its said that his master did not survive the disaster. We brought Peanut to the shelter many times to mingle with the other dogs. We tried to help in small ways donating food, toys, blankets, towels and other necessities. I remember covering the City Council meetings a few years ago when a group of people tried to remove Jeannette as head of Tri County. They were viciously critical of the way she ran the facility, but, in the end, Deputy City Manager George Brown found the shelter had done no wrong. Even Jeannette admitted Tri County is not a beautiful place. And yes, Jeannette was gruff. Everyone who knew her said she had a temper. But it could not hide the goodness in her heart. The tough veneer was just her way of protecting the dogs and cats that came through her door. And they came in broken and battered, burned and often near death. She saved thousands. Jeannette was one of the busiest people I have met. But when our adorable Maltese Medessa died a few years ago, Jeannette retrieved her at the animal hospital, put her in a small casket and allowed mourners time to reflect in the parlor of the house behind the animal cemetery next to Tri County. Medessa is now at rest in that sanctuary. When a pet dies, its said that he or she crosses the Rainbow Bridge to their heavenly eternity. At the funeral, Jeannettes friend, Diane Laverdure, read a tribute saying that Jeannette has 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. To the Editor: Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER The issues which ultimately impact individual lives, are not necessarily sensational experiences, the most expensive items given, nor that which involves much public display. Instead, they entail meaningful, simple acts of kindness silently performed for the benefit of other people. Every single day, an important ingredient of my prayers, is the request: Dear God, help me positively to touch someone today, by word or deed! Repeatedly He grants me that petition by making me more alert to a variety of situations around me, showing me the way on how best to respond to each. Our most significant task on earth is to make a difference for good! There is no greater joy than to end each day and look back, recognizing some good done, some word of cheer conveyed, or any other tangible means of making another life better, in some way. It may come through a Impacting persons one at a time!smile we inspire, a cheer we offer, a word we say, or a small gift we provide! In my roles as a public speaker, I address several groups weekly. Quite often, these are pre-planned and scheduled, while at other occasions these are more spontaneously given. Yet, in either case I attempt always to provide positive reminders and encouraging thoughts as genuine uplifts to people. Im often amazed at how little it takes to impact another person if we are proper in all our ways, choosing our words carefully as the vehicles which can best make an indelible difference in those who see and hear me. My caring agenda has no hidden issues nor motives! In stores and restaurants, as well as at other public establishments, workers often meet with uncaring and uncouth persons, who deal with them unkindly. We can make a vital difference by restoring their sense of personal worth through the tenderness with which we approach them, by the kind words we use toward them, by our positive posture in meeting them. All this must stem from a loving heart, attuned to the pulsations of Gods own heart. What we say or do should spring from sincere motives or that will make no difference whatsoever. It can never represent flattery, for that can easily be uncovered and promptly discarded! Ultimately, unless one speaks the language of love to ones neighbor, all else is of no avail. Individually and collec tively, members of society should strive to meet the real, emotional malnourishment prevalent in the world today! Never put off an act of genuine caring, for tomorrow you may be unable to fulfill it. Translate the good intentions of your heart into sincere, impacting deeds for the benefit of others! People here at the Boca Raton Tribune are always coming up with new ideas. And thats great. Here are a few things that came up during a recent conversation with the staff. The Boca Tribune has always tried hard to serve the community well, and we enjoy fea turing the positive side of whats going on in the government, schools and neighborhoods. But we cant keep track of everything. We know there must be problems that need to be addressed. And not all of them get reported to the proper authorities. We want everyone out there to be our eyes and ears. Were not trying to pick on the city, we just want to give people a forum for posting concerns. If you see something you feel needs addressing, send it to watchdog@bocaratontribune. com and well check it out. As it happens, a new resident of Boca Woods emailed me the other day asking about why there are no sidewalks along the median of Palmetto Would you like to be watchdogs for Boca Raton TribunePark Road in a section of West Boca near his home. He also feels the landscaping needs some improvements. I suspect its because Palmetto Park is partly a county road and partly a city road. Well check it out. Also, were creating a forum to give the public an opportunity to speak out. In fact, were called it Speak Out. Anyone with something so say is asked to post it on our Facebook page. No subjects are forbidden, but please make your comments in good taste. In the Food Department Changes are going to be made in the way food reviews and done and published here at the Boca Raton Tribune. We want to commend Marc Kent for his fine work providing tasty tidbits about some of the local eateries. But after a few more of his reviews are published, this prac tice will stop. There are some surprises coming in the food department that we cant yet divulge. I can say one thing, though. Rather than publish full restaurant reviews, we are going to feature one dish per week. One edition might have a variety of minireviews about chicken parmesan. Another week, well delve into the calamari. Fish and chips, spaghetti and meatballs, even snapper and mahi-mahi are foods for thought. We continue to work with Lillo Teodosi, owner (with his wife, Gina) of Caruso Ristorante on SE Mizner Boulevard, for an upcoming column by the well-established chef. Lillo will soon be writing a culinary column for the Tribune. If youve ever eaten at Carusos, you know the quality of the food and the great taste Lillo brings to his creations. Lillo will be also be conducting cooking classes at the restaurant. Those who loved the food at Carusos will get a chance to learn from the master himself. Those who take the class will watch Lillo prepare a meal, then they will follow his lead and they can take their dish home to enjoy with the family. Keep an eye on the Tribune for more information about these new features.

Seventy eight proposals were received and only 28 projects received funding. The club will use this grant to publish sex trafficking brochures in English, Spanish and Creole. The brochures will be distributed to the general public, the courthouse, jails and homeless shelters. Officials said there are no concrete statistics on how many people have been trafficked in Palm Beach County. However, the United Nations estimates that 700,000 to four million women and children are trafficked around the world for purposes of forced prostitution, labor and other forms of exploitation every year. Trafficking is estimated to be a $7 billion dollar annual business. Victims of trafficking are subjected to gross human rights violations including rape, torture, forced abortions, starvation and threats of torturing or murdering family members. Florida has the characteristics that attract and promote an environment for human trafficking: migrants, agriculture, loca tion, transient traffic. In support of its commitment to end violence against women, the group will use the grant to work in cooperation with the Chi Zeta Zeta Chapter and the Human Trafficking Coalition of the Palm Beaches to educate Palm Beach County on how to identify a trafficking victim, address the demand side of trafficking, legislation, needs of the victims and community response. Soroptimist is an interna tional organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Almost 95,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories contribute time and financial support to community based and international projects that benefit women and girls.

Are you operating at the appropriate speed? Are you trying to text? Have you just had a few alcoholic drinks? In light of response to a Boca Raton Tribune column about a double-fatal accident in Coconut Creek, we are launching a campaign to raise awareness among drivers. And that includes everyone, from those in a small car to truck drivers, motorcyclists and operators of 18-wheelers. Highway safety is a must and you must never let yourself be distracted. Last month, Tribune Publisher Douglas Heizer wrote a column about an accident that killed motorcyclist David Da Silva, 18, of Boca Raton and Edward Joseph, 27, of Deerfield Beach, who was operating a pickup truck. While Heizer honed in on Da Silva, who was a family friend, the column was not intended to slight Joseph or his family, who are also grieving the loss. As part of the follow-up to this accident, the Tribune received an email from Stephanie L. Gioletti, legislative aide to State Rep. Irv Slosberg. It said: I am writing on behalf of Representative Slosberg. After reading your Tragedy on the Boca Raton Tribune launches trac safety awareness eort highway has personal touchfor second time in The Boca Raton Tribune, Representative Slosberg wanted to thank you for discussing the dangers on the roadways as this has become his lifes mission. Representative Slosbergs mission for road safety began when his daughter Dori, age 14, was killed in a reckless automobile accident leaving his other twin daughter, Emily in a coma. Since then, Representative Slosberg has made it his lifes mission to educate the public on road safety and the unforgiving dangers that lurk on the roadways. Gioletti hopes more articles can be printed in the future. Motorcyclist Joel Brito also emailed us about the accident that took two lives that day in Coconut Creek. Joel says: I look at this and I thank God every day because I'm alive... I've been there, luckily I didnt die. I didnt know him (Da Silva). Im a rider too and I love bikes. Ive got to say something to all the riders out there... always respect the ma chine; once you think you are too good at it, youre gone. And obey the law, if a cop stops you, stop and face the consequences, thats the best option. David Da Silva, hope you rest in peace!!!

Evidence from the crime scene, including DNA from a latex glove, was processed along with several other items. Although the detectives initial investigation did not produce any viable leads, Boonenberg said, the latex glove and other items were sent to the PBSO Crime Lab for DNA analysis.

After completion of the successful "The Milan at Town Center" office project, Gromann sought foreign and other investors to complete a mixed use project to be prospectively known as "The Fountains at Town Center" on nearby property. The Milan project houses the Florida headquarters of Comerica Bank, and is also home to CBIZ Goldstein Lewin, the local arm of the national accounting and professional services firm. Plans for a high-end Miami-style club called "Sofia at Milan" which Gromann wants to create with local chef Angelo Morinelli are also proceeding with financing commitments in place. The Sofia at Milan is a unique concept and the only use of its kind currently approved in the City. "Expect some celebrity involvement," says Gromann. The mixed use "Foun-Developer plans $1B worth of investments in Boca Ratontains" project at Town Center is expected to be between 250,000 and 500,000 square feet and run in the $250 million to $450 million range. The project is slated to include high-end retail, boutique hotel, multiple restaurant uses, banks, specialty office and both rental and condo residential uses. "Whoever is not currently in the Town Center area is going to want to be involved in this project. The best thing about this project is that I am not really competing with anyone in the area. I am bringing new and specialty uses which complement the existing infrastructure and provide a value-added benefit and draw to the existing office and retail components, said Gromann. He added: The proposed residential space in this pedestrian friendly project will add density and customers for all of the local businesses. The smart tenants are already lining up for space," cites Gromann. Boca Raton was a natural choice and not a difficult sell for investors, he said. This is one of the best managed cities in the country. The mayor and City Council work well together and with the City Manager's office, and the city's staff, is some of the best around. The Community Redevelopment Agency has done a fantastic job with the downtown area," stated Gromann who sits as the chairman of the Downtown Boca Raton Advisory Committee. An internationally rec ognized locale, "Boca always recovers faster after an economic downturn and property values and rental rates are typically some the highest in South Florida. We have just gone through one of the most cataclysmic real estate downturns in history yet the City of Boca has kept taxes low and credit ratings high, he said. Along with the Sofia club, Gromann is currently looking to build two or three boutique hotels under a national franchise both in downtown Boca and on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. "We are in the right climate for well-planned development in Boca; those who do not move quickly are going to miss out. As we say in the downtown 'It's happening!'" notes Gromann. Boca real estate rm expands into Naples market By PRWIRE BOCA RATON -Boca Executive Realty announced that it will be opening a new real estate office in Naples, Florida. The Naples office is located on the grounds of the Naples Bay Resort. The Naples real estate market represents a tremendous opportunity for Boca Executive Realty to expand is brand throughout the state of Florida, said Zev Freidus, founder and president of Boca Executive Realty. The Naples office of Boca Executive Realty is the 5th office location for this 5-year-old company which began in 2005 in Boca Ra ton but quickly expanded, opening branch offices in Broward County, Northern Palm Beach County, The Treasure Coast and now Naples. The company is poised to reach over $300 million in annual sales this year, and the Naples market has the potential to add another $100$200 million in annual sales for the company, officials said. In addition to Naples, this office will also represent homes in Fort Myers, Bonita Springs and surrounding southwest Florida communities. The companys strength is in online marketing and has leveraged technology to provide a value proposition to home sellers and Realtors. With two thirds of the company sales being generated by buyer representation, sellers have a better chance of finding a buyer for their home when they list with Boca Executive Realty, especially in this market when buyers are hard to come by. And with the majority of the companys revenue originating from its online lead generation system, Realtors can reasonably expect to double their business when affiliating with the company.

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 Anita a Story of Survival and Hope Argentina is a fascinating country on the other side of the world from the USA, yet in many ways familiar. There are probably more European immigrants in Argentina than any other South American country. Both former Nazis and Jews fleeing from persecution resettled in Argentina before, during and after World War II. I offer this as background for an Argentinean film called Anita. The Anita of the title is a young Argentine woman with Down syndrome. Anita lives with her mother (award-winning Argentine actress Alejandro Manzo) in Buenos Aries. Anitas mother runs a small stationery shop she inherited from her late husband. One morning her mother leaves Anita in the shop so she can attend a Jewish anti-defamation league meeting. She locks the door and cautions Anita not to leave. A horrendous explosion occurs while Anita is up on a footstool. The blast blows out the windows and door of the shop. Anita is knocked unconscious, but she recovers and wanders out through the wreckage in search of her mother. Writer-director Marcos Carnevale was inspired by an actual antiJewish terrorist attack in Buenos Aries on July 18, 1994. The attack claimed the lives of 86 innocent victims and injured hundreds more. It was the single deadliest terrorist attack in Argentine history. The perpetrators have never been located or prosecuted, though the origins of the attack are strongly suspected to be in the Hezbollah anti-Israel, anti-West hate group in Iran. But Anita is not about politics, violence or religion. It is about one mentally-challenged womans survival, with the help of complete strangers. Anita celebrates human compassion. Not all of Anitas protectors are willing or selfless. Some pass the buck, so to speak, but conscience inevitably draws them back in. For this reason I find Anita a wondrously hopeful film. If you believe in the inherent goodness of human beings, it is the feel-good movie of the season. Three and a half stars Cowboys and Aliens Neither Fish nor Fowl When I did an advance on Cowboys and Aliens for Atlantic Ave magazine earlier this summer, I thought to myself this could be daringly brilliant or really dumb. The answer lies somewhere in between. This Steven Spielberg production looks great, has a dynamite cast and a script that both honors and spoofs the movie. Western traditions, but it gets headed off at the pass once those darn aliens start jumping around. Steely, blue-eyed James Bond actor Daniel Craig looks good in a cowboy outfit, and does some convincing choreography as badass gold-robber Jake Lonergun. Harrison Ford is more grizzled than ever as his nemesis, Col. Woodrow Dolarhyde, and Olivia Wilde is stunningly lovely as the obligatory babe, Ella Swenson. Ella has a very special secret in this tall tale adapted by director Jon Favreau from the 2006 graphic novel by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. Graphic novel is just a nicer way of saying comic book. Like Super 8 earlier this summer, Cowboys and Aliens goes off the railsway off the railsand off a cliff. The advance screening crowd seemed to enjoy it and even applauded after the grand finale, but they didnt pay for tickets. This movie will please neither fans of Westerns nor alien monster movie fanciers. I guess that leaves fanboys (the film debuted last week at ComicCon). Well see if there are enough of them for this film to earn back its production costs. One and a half stars Scene from Anita

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Diane Feen Ceilings and other political issues Editors note: This column was written during the debate about raising the debt ceiling, I have always been taught that a popcorn ceiling is in bad taste (and so is a drop ceiling). But now it seems that a debt ceiling is even worse. You cant call in a good handyman (or a contrac tor) and you cant find a good decorator to change the height (or color) of it either. It seems that the country is mired in a ceiling debacle. Call it ceilingArmageddon, but this talk about the height of ones inner domicile is making everyone crazy. Were going to lose credit ratings and credibility in the eyes of the world, the doomsayers are yelling. The political landscape is even more dire. The Republicans dont want to raise the ceiling (maybe its bad for their art collections) and the Democrats want to raise the ceiling to fit their needs (perhaps they are a shorter group). And regular people are just as perplexed. Some of us are adamant about ceiling limits and others are like me, just sanguine about the whole thing. Like a dysfunctional family, everyone is fighting over ceiling height. I dont know about you, but in my family we fought over things that mattered, like why the chicken is overcooked and why does the kitchen look like a cyclone hit it. I say stop all this fighting and bickering and just call in a good contractor. That way everyone can pick the ceiling height they want. Some can have loft ceilings (that are high) others can have drop ceilings (like my moms condo) and still others can just take off the ceiling and get a mosquito net. Otherwise were all going to need the help of Dr. Phil. And with Oprah throwing in the towel, we dont even have the goddess of goodness to lull us into a faux sense of security (and make us feel loved). So what are we going to do? There is one option that seems to be getting gravitas from Washing ton insiders, and its called a clean debt ceiling. Im not sure what that means (perhaps they called in my cleaning girl Jeannette) but the group Rebuild the Dream is sending a message to Congress that they must pass a clean debt ceiling now. Apparently the clean ceiling issue is gaining popularity because Representative Peter Welch just got 139 Democratic representatives to support the cleaner one. I always say that cleanliness is Godliness and you dont need Dr. Phil to tell you that. Im still not sure why everyone is going bonkers over the current ceiling height its been raised 74 times in the past. Perhaps all the clean-up (and falling plaster) has everyone in a tizzy. You can only raise a ceiling so many times before it starts looking like Joan Rivers face. But the consequences for not raising the ceiling are getting dire. Money Magazine said, Ultimately, if lawmakers fail to raise the ceiling this year, they will have two choices, both awful. This is not good for the people, or for the government. Neither is the fact that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said that if lawmakers don't get it together by Aug. 2, the United States will no longer be able to pay its bills. Mr. Geithner is one smart man. He is right, how can you pay your bills (or watch TV for that matter) if you dont have a proper ceiling. All you need is one rainy day and everything (including your bills) will get ruined. You dont have to be a member of Congress to figure that out. Its just a matter of common sense.

Do you really know what your customer wants?I asked a prospective client what business she was in. She complained that some days she doesnt know herself. She said her clients are so fickle that she is not sure what they want anymore. We decided to do a focus group to find out what they want and determine if we can satisfy their wants and needs. We discovered that she was not catering to her present market and did not see what was actually happening. There was a marked shift to a younger, more price conscious customer. Knowing your audience base is essential for any business. However, we must have the tools to work with in order keep up with the changing times. Enter Focus Groups! What is a focus group? It is a research tool that gives the company the ability to intermingle directly with its public in a controlled environment. In this setting the participants responses are recorded and analyzed. Look at it as another means you can use to evaluate your current services and future plans. It affords you a chance to become more attuned to what your clients are thinking by hearing and analyzing their responses to the posed questions and to each others responses. There are various kinds of focus groups depending upon on the size of the business, the size of the geographical area concerned with and the cost allocated to it. Focus groups are also used in marketing research studies, in the social sciences, political campaigns and even by the federal government. For the purpose of the average local business the group should consist of a representative group of your companys target market usually, 6-12 people, who are requested to participate in your focus group and answer questions posed by the moderator. The questions asked relate to how they feel about your current ads or planned ads, services you provide, your product, future products and their perception of your brand. There is usually some form of compensation for the participants, money, gifts, refreshments and sometimes just recognition in the form of a thank you letter. The information you get can be invaluable in guiding you to make corrections or additions to your companys plans or format. It provides you an opportunity to glean opinions, perceptions and beliefs about your product. The company is wise to conduct a focus group prior to adding a new product or service or planning any large event, advertising or public relations campaign to ensure that they will resonate with the target audience. All of this can be accomplished by a skilled moderators questions and an equally skillful analysis of the answers. ducting focus groups, I find that a successful focus group consists of the following four components: carefully selected to truly represent a cross section of your customers. dependent moderator who is running the meeting, in stimulating audience participation. questions asked. sis of the information obtained. So, as we see, organizing a focus group is not a meaningless activity, it unveils vital information a business needs in order to serve its public. Its not expensive and the return on investment will pay great dividends. Excerpts from the book, The Real World Guide to Fashion Selling & Management, Gerald J. Sherman & Sar S. Perlman.

This new, robotic pa tient-positioning system enhances safety, precision and accuracy for patients undergoing high precision Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and Stereotactic Radiosurgery while also increasing the efficiency of a treatment session. Patients receiving these types of therapies are treated on a table with a gantry that rotates around them, delivering the radia tion in a manner that attacks the precise configuration of a tumor from all planes and angles. Like a ship at sea, the gantry has elements of pitch, roll and yaw that allow it to deliver the radiation beam most effectively while sparing surrounding anatomy. Controlling these three elements is critically important to successful outcomes and patient safety. Prior to robotic patient positioning, a treatment plan would be calibrated and therapy initiated. If adjustments were needed, the treatment session would be stopped, new calculations would be entered and therapy resumed. Tim Williams, MD, medical director of Ra diation Oncology at the cancer center, said robotic positioning allows for automatic correction in pitch, roll and rotation and adds a new level of precision in treatment setup for SBRT and SRS procedures. At least 50 percent of our patients will have a correction in one of these dimensions, and in our program, having a full six degrees of alignment correction is essential for delivering these treatments safely and accurately, he said. Maximizing the efficiency of the treatment session from both a clinical and patient convenience perspective is the distinct benefit of robotic positioning. The 6D table has provided us with more ac curate positioning during patients' setup, hence more confidence in the precision on delivered treatments," said Charles Shang, MS, B.MED, D.ABR, director of medical physics at LCI. We were particularly pleased with the fact that we were able to fine tune 'roll, pitch and yaw' without reentering the room. For some challenging cases, such as intracranial and spinal SRS where rotations became particularly crucial, this system has demonstrated its unique advantages. With over 100 ra diation therapy patients now receiving treatment with robotic positioning, the Lynn Cancer Institute is established as one of the most experienced centers in the country in the use of the technology. We believe our use and experience in robotic positioning provides us with a material difference in the way a patient is treated. We are more precise, more efficient and safer. This technology has clearly enhanced our capabilities from both a clinical effectiveness and patient satisfaction perspective, commented Dr. Williams. r f n t b f r b f r b f f r f r f f f rf rfr G SGislene Schurman, MS, LMHC Psychotherapy954.801.7270 English, Portuguese, Spanish Adults, Teenagers, Children Psychotherapy BOCA RATON -Palm Beach County School Board Chairman Frank Barbieri will be speaking on the challenges facing education in today's world at the next West Boca Chamber of Commerce breakfast scheduled Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Boca Greens Country Club, 19642 Trophy Drive, Boca Raton.Also, the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce will host Mayor Susan Whelchel as its guest Boca, West Boca chambers host ocials at up coming breakfastsspeaker at a breakfast Thursday, Aug. 11 from 7:45 to 9 a.m. at The Country Club at Boca Raton, 6200 Boca Del Mar Drive, Boca Raton.

Columnists The Boca Raton TribuneBy: Pastor Miguel Angelo Jr. With 10 years of ministry, Miguel Angelo Jr. is the Pastor of Cristo Vive Church, which was founded in Brazil, by his father, The Apostle Miguel Angelo. Miguel Jr. is an Author with seven books, an international preacher, preaching on the radio, TV and satellites, spreading the Gospel around the World and recently founded a Church in Boca Raton, Florida.Michael H. Gora wrote this column at the height of the debate over raising the debt ceiling. By Mike Gora Re-elect no one The Family I am sitting in my PJs in front of my computer at 5 a.m. on Saturday morning, July 30, 2011 wondering whether or not my fortune relied upon for eventual retirement will have disappeared by next Saturday morning. Many of you are in the same position. At least this time we all know exactly who to blame. No, its not the Wall Street Barons or banks, or brokerage houses, or even Bernie, its the jerks that we elected last year or two years before that. Instead of electing intelligent men and women who put the future of the United States of America ahead of their own personal political aspirations and personal wealth, we have elected two separate groups of scalawags and snake oil salesman who are all willing to make plans which all begin, Well, first well crash the bus. We have Representa tives and Senators who believe that communications include only shouting, and not listening, who believe compromise is weakness, and who believe that frightening every adult in the United States with a brain is a good idea. Our Representatives and Senators, who must have never read Animal Farm or Gullivers Travels, force us all to live the worst part of those two satiric novels. We have Representa tives and Senators who have no idea of the wishes, hopes, dreams, and aspira tions of the people they govern and to whom they are responsible. My way or the highway is their motto, greed is their creed, and hubris is a word in the dictionary. There is only one solution to the epidemic of stupidity we are faced with: Re-elect no one. Today, have a happy family that looks abnormal to some, but this is the original divine plan, its Gods idea, in Eden, He did not design a perfect family, but a happy family in a perfect place! Gen.1: 27.28. "The Place" has changed, the Earth became imperfect, but God's design for the family has not changed: happiness! The family is one of the key pillars of our lives! How to be happy when everything around us is confused? How could one remain beautiful and interested in your spouse if we are surrounded by temptations? Like having quality time with your offspring when your life is increasingly full of occupations? How to educate your children "by the lord teachings" could parents follow this path? How to teach them what is right, when the world outside of your door shows them the opposite? What to do to preserve the spiritual and moral integrity of your family? Who should we listen to and which advice to take to have total peace and prosperity at home? What God has prepared for my family here on Earth and in this country? Listen: Do not let anything convince you that God does not have the best on this land for your family! Isaiah 1:19 Dont believe it! Take ownership on gods proposal. Our family is part of a king dom that the Bible calls a steadfast, I said today: Our family is out of the statistics of failure and is under the plans and Promises of the Lord! gen.12: 3 Interestingly, three of the verses.1 7 God made promises to Abraham, seven (perfection) Victory for the family! Isaiah 61:7,9 It is the fulfillment of the promises made to Abraham! I want to give you 8 hints on how to be and live happily with your family: 1) Be a good friend of your family! 2) Believe that you are able to love and help your family! 3) Take responsibility for the well-being of your family! 4) Do not just take care of your family, but dedicate yourself to it! 5) Be transparent with your family and true! 6) Make adjustments, they never end! 7) Always forgive! 8) Do not be afraid to show them love! I heard someone say, "People dont understand how important family is and how short life is! Make your family life a rewarding experience!

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune Four free agents the Miami HEAT should pursueBy: Matt Pineda When (or if) the 2011 NBA lockout ends, there may be something similar to the NFL rush to sign free agents. Its possible that the season could be shortened or begins in a rush to where teams would have limited time to sign free agents without missing games with them. Our hope is that the NBA will be settled and ready for play in October. Realistically, that wont happen, but we still have hope. 1. Michael Redd If the HEAT were able to sign Michael Redd to something similar to a Jerry Stackhouse contract (minimum and non-guaranteed) then they should do it.Redd has experience playing with team USA alongside the big three, and he is a veteran. Redd would be the perfect combo guard off the bench along with Mike Miller. He wouldnt have to play heavy minutes, but would be there to give Wade a longer break throughout the regular sea son. Hes capable of lighting it up, and if he can stay healthy would be that fire power off the bench Miami desperately needs. Redd would solidify the backcourt bench with Cole, and Miller alongside him. 2. Eddy Curry *This is under two assumptions: 1) that Dalembert, Nene, Tyson Chandler, and Oden are signed for way more than Miami can offer, and 2) that Curry is in or near Pat Riley conditioning level. I know, I know. This is a risk. But Eddy Curry has some upside. He is a big! And I dont just mean he is fat, but hes a 7-footer with some touch. Trust me, if Pat Riley is going to sign somebody with this type of reputation then he knows where he stands. Curry wont have to play massive minutes with Joel here, but he could be a piece that helps. I think back to Game 6 of the Finals where Miami is fighting back against Dallas on their last stand and they give up like 3 offensive rebounds in one possession. Curry would be a big body to box out, and he wont bobble the ball like Joel. He will have some weaknesses, but I think its a risk Miami can take to fill out its roster. The dude has to be hungry to prove people wrong, right? 3. Earl Watson Itd be nice to have a veteran point guard behind Chalmers and Cole that isnt hungry to take their spot. Watson has been around long enough and good enough to teach them a few things. He could teach them how to stay hungry and be a good teammate. Plus, there is always the possibility of one of them getting hurt, or with Spos rotation just be completely tossed out for a while. A third point guard would be a good option here. Watson is quick, maybe he could stick with Barea. 4. Mike Dunleavy Mike has made his money, and could give up PT to be with a winner. Dunleavy has had injuries, but here he would be a frequent DNP when everyone is healthy. He is a combo player that can play the 2-3-4 in Miamis sets. He hits the three and can dribble. If hes willing to sign for cheap, he could fill a roster spot. He wont come easy though, hes been a consistent starter in this league. By: Orlando Greenwald The Strikers had 10 days before their match against FC Edmonton to heal up and rest for the reminder of the season. Before Saturday, Coach Daryl Shores said Hopefully the layoff heals some of our wounds. Guys were able to take a bit of a break and recharge our batteries. It was good to get away a little bit and now we all know the importance of the game Saturday night. Having more than 7 days between games is not new for the Strikers. In the two times before Saturday this has happened, the Strikers have been undefeated in each game, winning one and having a draw in another. Now they can add another win Facing the FC Edmonton for the 2nd time this sea son, and first time since the inaugural game of the sea son, the Strikers hosted FC Edmonton and their orange and white jerseys worn by the 1982 Edmonton Drillers of the old NASL. The starting lineup was different, most noticeable was moving Brain Shriver from right wing to a striker in their formation, To be honest Ive played forward my whole club career and in college and I feel comfortable. Scoring two goals, Shriver comfortable level was noticeable. An early one in the 14th minute and another in the 75minute, Shrivers speed and quickness gives him an advantage against defenders. During his 2nd goal, who took a defender one on one and with his first step, blew by him, and ripped a shot top corner in front of the goalie. "Shriver was active tonight and we were able to finish our chances," said Shore. "Bryan Arguez did a great job in the middle tonight. Having Gerson Mayen back from Chivas USA is an added bonus. Walter Restrepo and Mike Palacio were good tonight as well." Another difference in the lineup was Walter Restrepo, his first game action this sea son. He had been practicing with the team all year, but with injuries to the team, the loan out of Paulinho LePetit, Lennon Celestino leaving back to his native country of Brazil, and the suspension of Eduardo Coudet, Restrepo was needed. Almost a whole year without playing 90 minutes, it was kinda hard, different style of soccer [from Colombia] but Im adapting and getting my stamina back. Overall, the Strikers looked much quicker and faster. Abe Thompson, the new captain of the team had a goal for his own in the 29th minute and had the assist to Brain Shriver in the first goal of the game. The win is important, with only 10 games reminding now in the season, FC Edmonton is a potential playoff opponent.

Na tionally-ranked teams and South Region opponents litter the 2011 Lynn University womens soccer schedule as announced on Tuesday. The Fighting Knights will pack in 15 games this sea son with seven being played in the friendly confines of the Mc Cusker Sports Complex. This is an extremely competitive schedule for us and one that I think will make us better throughout the year, said thirdyear head coach Chip Dutchik. Our out of conference opponents are very tough, which puts us in a great position to be successful in the ultra-competitive Sunshine State Conference. Opening on the road for the first two weeks of the season, the Blue & White pit their talent against Armstrong Atlantic State to begin the season. The Pirates reached the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and closed out the season ranked No. 11 in the nation after posting an 114-4 record. Lynn then battles zSPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL another NCAA tournament opponent, Belmont Abbey, in a neutral site game in Winter Park, Fla. Week two doesnt become any easier for Lynn as it travels to Memphis, Tenn., for a pair of South Region match-ups. The Knights first game goes against host Christian Brothers with the second contest versus North Alabama. Lynn faces additional non-conference opponents at home against Flagler and Palm Beach Atlantic. Sunshine State Conference play begins for LU on September 23 when it travels to Florida Southern. On September 25, the Blue & White take on Eckerd in their first SSC home match. Following its meeting with PBA on September 29, Lynn hits the road for three contests against Saint Leo, Rollins and Tampa before closing out the regular season on a three-game home stand versus Nova Southeastern, No. 4 Florida Tech and long-time rival Barry.
