Rodri guez. The goal for our cadets is to constantly improve their marksmanship skills through dedication to the sport and a lot of practice to get to the state champi onships and place within the next three years. Current team members are: Darius Forde, Mat thew Meyer, Macy Dalton, Brandon Dauta, Francisco Mendoza, David Mendoza, Johnny Maddy, Stephen Pham, Kylle Arnold, James Malloy, Taylor Hoffman, Brandon Pabion, Victor Angeles, Rohan Dawkins, and Jazmin Baidal. The Air Rifle Team grant process began in August 2010 and was ap proved in February 2011. As of April of 2011 the equipment purchased with the grant money started arriving, which contribut ed to an increased interest in marksmanship immedi ately. By the end of the school year, the number of cadets on the team went from 20 to 30 and is anticipated to reach nearly 60. The School Districts goal is to prepare all stu dents for academic success. Community partnerships such as these strengthen the organization and ad vance student achieve ment. BOCA RATON --Flor ida Atlantic University conferred nearly 1,700 de grees during three recent commencement ceremo nies in the Carole and Bar ry Kaye Performing Arts Auditorium on the Boca Raton campus. Among the grads was 90-year-old Menachem Henri Hager who credits his 90 years of life to his own philosophy which he developed from reading Socrates and Plato never stress, eat well and always continue to learn and ques tion things. These ideals, combined with extensive life experi ences, an exposure to vari ous cultures and finding true love, led Hager to reach his highest pinnacle yet. Hager became the old est graduate of FAU when he received his masters de gree in liberal studies from the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Let ters on Tuesday, Aug. 9. The date was also his 90 birthday. I love to study, and I love to see different envi ronments compared to the materialistic environment around me, said Hager. I like to live my philosophy. And I believe in democra cy, pure democracy. Everyone should have access and utilize educa tion in all forms. Born in 1921 in North Africa, Hager spent his youth at sea. When World War II broke out, he vol unteered to serve in the North African Navy and 90-year-old among grads at FAU summer commencement took part in some of the hardest-fought sea battles against the Nazis. Hager later joined both the French Navy in Paris and then the Israeli Navy in Israel. It was during his time that he learned to speak German, Arabic, Italian, French, Hebrew, Spanish and some Chinese. After the war, Hager met the love of his life, El len, on board a passenger ship, and they were married in 1967. Once discharged from the Navy, he worked as an electrician in Ohio and eventually took a job with a contractor working at FAU in the late 1970s. Over the years, Ellen, a graduate of Ohio State University, urged Henry to pursue a college degree, and he eventually took her advice, beginning his stud ies at Broward College at the age of 73. Ellen died just before Henry gradu ated from BC during their 34th year of marriage. Before she died, my wife said to me, please al ways stay young for me, said Hager. She pushed me to stay active, and it was very important to her that I got my bach elors degree and my mas ters degree because she knew how much I loved to learn. The sky is still the limit for Hager, who has no plans of stopping. I would like to go for my doctorate in philosophy or anthropol ogy. I find it very interest ing, said Hager. Id also like to visit the north and go skiing again because I absolutely love the snow. And I would like to teach piano to students and show them how to play Bach, Bach and more Bach. Commencement is a wonderful opportunity for FAU to celebrate the great accomplishments of these graduates, said FAU President Mary Jane Saun ders. We congratulate all of our graduates and hope they will continue to be part of the FAU family as active alumni. The graduation cere mony also honored Dr. Ira J. Gelb with the Presidents Distinguished Service Me dallion. A board-certified cardiologist, Gelb has a long history of volunteer service to the university. He currently is assistant dean for pre-baccalaureate programs, co-director of cardiology and a clinical professor of biomedical science in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medi cine at FAU.

He is an accountant and has been a mem ber of the club for two years. Pessoas father was a Rotarian. After attend ing some meetings, Pessoa decided the Ro tary Club was for him. "I really began to identify myself with the Rotary Club," said Pessoa. "The club is a religious or political organization. It is not an organization where people have their own agendas. I found that it was something I want ed to be a part of." Pessoa also liked the fact that he could be active on positive service projects rather than simply donate money to something. "I want to be involved on projects," he said. Pessoa does have a number of goals for the Rotary Club of Boca Raton West. "I want to grow the club with new members and with quality members. As a new club, we need quality members with the same philosophy and values," he said. He wants to create foundation that will be similar to the club but allow the organization to get bigger donors. "I want to educate people on what Rotary does. I want to promote Rotary locally to people who will eventually become Rotarians," he said.

Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497 used as letters to the editor. Letter Guidelines By Dale King Letters to the Editor Approach of autumn brings nostalgic thoughts of home EDITORIALS/LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL The Boca Raton Tribune Founded January 15, 2010 Publisher C.E.O C.O.O. C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor My wife and I are ap proaching the 11th anni versary of our move from New England to Florida. I remember a question we were often asked dur ing the first year or so we were here: Do you miss being home? Well, naturally, there are some things, but, overall, not many. As time passed, we began to long for some of our hometown favorites: hot weenies, clam cakes, cof fee milk, the Providence Performing Arts Center, Twin Oaks, looking out over Narragansett Bay and so on. I was reminded of something else about home the other day. We were in a department store, and I was in my just looking mode when I spotted some items that bore colors of black and orange. Yes, they were Halloween toys (actually, dog toys). But then I no ticed other items in the store decorated with faux gold and red leaves. We are in the middle of a hot, nasty summer right now, with humidity and bugs and storms. But autumn will soon be here. As a child, I didnt like autumn. It meant sum mer vacation was almost over. It also meant the cold weather was not far away. But I soon learned to appreciate it. Autumn was like a buffer between summer and winter, a season tem perate and calm. We pret ty much stopped worry ing about hurricanes, and didnt start to worry about snowstorms. As leaves changed color, they wrapped us in Technicolor surround ings. Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine drew the leaf peepers with their expanses of color set against moun tain backdrops. But we Southern New England ers had our favorite spots, too. In New England, au tumn means apple pick ing time. Neighborhood stands selling apples and related products popped up in various places in what we called the apple belt through northern Rhode Island and abut ting Massachusetts. The town of Wren tham (yes, the home town of Sen. Scott Brown) had a wonderful place called The Big Apple, set at the edge of an apple or chard. You could watch the apples coming off a conveyer belt where they were bagged. The big attraction there was a doughnut making machine. Round dollops of dough would fall into hot grease, cook, and then be shuttled down another conveyer where customers could snatch the hot, crispy goodies. Yes, those were won derful days. Wed visit Phantom Farm in Cum berland, R.I., which sold apples, pumpkins, jams and jellies. Some places offered little Dixie cups of cider for free. I recall visiting the Old Hornbine School in the town of Rehoboth, Mass., a one-room schoolhouse from centuries ago. On certain days in autumn, you could watch them squeeze apple juice with an old cider press. The Providence & Worcester Railroad of fered a fall foliage train ride from the old depot in Cumberland to the freight yard in Worcester, then back. I videotaped parts of the ride one au tumn day in 1998, and I still have the tape if any one wants to watch it. (To date, the only other person who has seen it is my mother.) I thought the P&W was really something. It was 99 years old when it bought its first stretches of track (It had always leased tracks from the old New Haven Rail road). When the New Haven folded, the P&W went on a buying spree and has accumulated a lot of track that was passed over by Amtrak, the Bos ton & Maine and other railroads. Theres no way South Florida can match a good New England autumn. Here, October marks the start of season, the en try of cooler weather, the departure of the humid ity and the arrival of the Snowbirds. But it cant match an afternoon at the Scitu ate Art Festival or a walk through an orchard on a cool day to view the Mc Intosh apples ripening on the trees. Maybe its time for an other look at that foliage train ride. To the editor: We appreciate all you have done to run news articles about West Boca Medical Center and Del ray Medical Center in your publication. Thanks so much. Ryan Lieber Tenet Healthcare PR Manager North To the editor Thank you very much for your coverage of the Wayne Barton Study Centers annual Back to School Jam on August 13.

EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. By Douglas Heizer By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. Human living has of ten been compared to a varied assortment of ac tivities and accomplish ments. It may be viewed as erecting a building, or illustrated as travel ing, even understood as a composition such as a musical score, besides other major engage ments. Be what it may, life is indeed a journey throughout the years one is granted on earth. Each new day one is supposed to bring one a bit father ahead than the day be fore, on account of ones positive actions and deci sive steps regarding all that life entails. In lifes journey, the only safe way for anyone is to remain on the road which leads to ones des tination. If necessary de tours appear, eventually they will lead one back to the path where that in dividual needs to remain traversing. A problem that so of ten occurs, however, is that many side entrances also exist which, if taken, will retard ones prog ress, or even lead one completely astray, very far from where one needs to be in order to proceed in the specific route. Such side entrances may come in the form of commitments not kept, serious issues dis regarded, current tasks neglected, other engage ments ignored. Yet, one needs to pay careful at tention to great as well as small matters if the basic issues of life are to converge and contribute to ones well-being, and to a timely arrival at the desired harbor. Human life can be di minished either by some extras one does which should have been avoid ed, or by whatever one refrains from performing which otherwise would have brought concrete, salutary benefits to self and others. The only safe forward move may occur when you are looking ahead. If your sight is down, you wont know how to circumvent sudden ob stacles and dangers en countered; if you glance around, you will become too distracted, thus af fecting the continuity of progress in the journey. Not to be forgot ten also, is that you can paint in your mind an exact picture of where you are moving, you may devise the best plans for any enterprise, you may prepare the clearest blueprints for achieving your goals. But unless you consult other people along the way, you may never bring in the de sired results, nor reach the anticipated destina tion. Be wise in every step you take! The Safe Path Meant For You To Follow Its been a long hot summer, and not many of us have given thought to the season of galas that begins this fall. The Boca Raton Tri bune is proud to be taking part again this year in the March of Dimes Signa ture Chefs Auction. Its a great event that will help a good cause, and we here at the Tribune are looking forward to it. Signature Chef Auc tion Chairs Jason & Jac lyn Brodie and Joshua & Marcy Friedman of Bro die & Friedman PA have already announced that the 6th Annual Signature Chefs Auction will be held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club Sept. 9 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. The event begins with a VIP reception for spon sors and chefs until 7:30 p.m. The ballroom doors will then open for the sig nature event which will include a great selection of wines and spirits, sam plings of food prepared by the Signature Chefs, and special auction dining packages. The organization will also present its 2011 March of Dimes Champi ons Award to Rosemary & Ben Krieger to recognize their outstanding support of March of Dimes and their mission to give every baby a healthy start. The time, energy, and support they have given make a profound difference in the lives of many babies and their families.

New duties for famed football coach We have all been look ing forward to the 2011 Florida Atlantic Univer sity football season with rapt anticipation. For the first time in its history, FAUs Fighting Owls will be playing home games in an on-campus stadium. The first home game in the Boca Raton-based grid arena is Oct. 15. But we recently found out that FAU s legend ary Head Football Coach Howard Schnellenberger will retire after the 2011 football season. After the seasons finale, he will fo cus his energy full-time on continuing to generate support for the new FAU stadium, as well as for ath letics and the university as a whole. We can think of no one better to do that. Its just that he will be missed along the sidelines at FAU games. Also, Howard has been one of the loudest cheer leaders calling for an oncampus football stadium, and its a shame he will only have one season to play in the newly con structed, 30,000 seat facil ity. Even before he arrived at FAU, Schnellenberger, now 77, was a legendary football coach at both the professional and college level. He previously held head coaching positions with the University of Oklahoma, University of Louisville, University of Miami, where he won a national championship, and the Baltimore Colts. He has also worked exten sively as an assistant coach at the college and pro lev els, including as part of the staff of the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins. Schnellen berger is also famous for recruiting Joe Namath to the University of Alabama for Bear Bryant in 1961. Schnellenberger, the only head coach in the FAU football programs existence, welcomed the idea of bringing football to FAU in 1998 and has been the driving force be hind the Owls. Since 2001, the team has had eight AllAmericans, three National Player of the Week hon orees, two bowl victories, two bowl MVPs, one de fensive MVP, one Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, one preseason Sun Belt Preseason Player of the Year and one Sun Belt Conference title. Way to go, Howard! Boca Raton Tribune a proud supporter of March of Dimes

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. Municipal News The Boca Raton Tribune By Dale M. King BOCA RATON If you were looking for happy news about the Boca Raton city budget for fiscal year 2011-2012, you couldnt have found it at the Aug. 11 breakfast sponsored by the Greater Boca Raton Cham ber of Commerce and the city of Boca Raton. While Chamber mem bers and guests enjoyed scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits, Mayor Susan Whelchel talked turkey about the municipal spend ing package that has to be finished before the end of September. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1. And the discussion was pretty grim. In just the past four years, she said, the city has cut its budget 17 percent or nearly $20 million. Just short of 200 city employee positions have also been trimmed and some services have already been reduced. But the cutting hasnt stopped. More will be Boca mayor oers grim assessment of city budget for 2011-2012 slashed to balance city spending for the coming year. As budget deliberations continue, City Manager Leif Ahnell has tossed three possible tax levy scenarios on the table. In one case, the citys tax rate would remain flat at $3.02 per $1,000 of taxable valu ation. Another, the so-called rollback rate of $3.08, is also in the mix, a figure that would raise a home owners annual tax bill by $20.66. And then theres the $3.15 rate a figure sup ported by Ahnell that would increase a home owners tax bill by $39 a year. These are our chal lenges, said the mayor, pointing to a power point summation of the possible rates. Thats what we will be doing in the next 30 days. She did promise that city officials would meet the challenge we may not agree on everything. She did note that the city only gets about 17 cents of every tax dollar paid in Boca. Palm Beach County gets just over 26 cents. And the School District gets almost 40 cents. So, while Boca Raton may not hike its tax rate, other levying authori ties may and have and they will all appear on the same bill. Whelchel did point out that Boca will be raising some fees in the coming year, but she admitted that fee is simply a euphe mism for tax. She said the fire assessment fee will rise from $60 to $80. Revenue will also be coming in from parking meters and from red light cameras, though she noted emphatically that the city hasnt put up any red light cameras yet. She said she gets emails from one particular resi dent who threatens to sue her when the red light cameras go live. The mayor doesnt put much stock in selling city assets as a means of rais ing dollars to cover budget items. That course of ac tion, she said, should only be considered as a last re sort. Councilwoman Con stance Scott has told the Boca Raton Tribune she wants to sell the munici pal golf course on Glades Road. That money would replace whatever the city takes out of its reserves to keep the tax rate low. Future projections, the mayor said, show flat property values and a 1 to 2 percent increase in revenue per year. At the same time, expenses will be rising 3 to 4 percent. Many costs are outside of the citys control, she said, noting that it will cost Boca Raton $250,000 to deal with the new Inspector General position. That is an unfunded mandate, she said, meaning no money is coming from the county to pay for it. Mayor Susan Whelchel addresses the audience at the Aug. 11 breakfast co-spon sored by the city and the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce.

Staff removes the items from the bins for reshelving or transfer to another location. Express-check Most branch libraries also have express-check ma chines, so patrons can avoid the line at the desk. At a self-check unit, patrons fol low the instructions on the screen, scan their library card, scan the barcode on the front of the item, grab the receipt and go. DVD dispensers Some branch libraries have DVD dispensers that work much like the nowfamiliar Red Box. New and popular DVD cases are on the shelves. You pick out a DVD, take the case to the DVD dispenser, scan your library card and the bar code on the front of the case, and the selection will pop up out of the slot. The DVD dispenser can also be used to check out books and CDs. Library Mate and the express check-out stations are radio frequency iden tification devices (RFID). For added security, the li brary is installing gates with RFID technology to provide notification if ma terials arent checked out properly. All of this equip ment is part of the librarys automation initiative. Last year, the library circulated 8.5 million items resulting in staff process ing 17 million items. The automated improvements mean employees can spend less time processing mate rials and more time assist ing patrons.

Chesler As Florida homeown ers and condominium association board mem bers try to recover from sticker shock related to increases in their proper ty & casualty premiums, Florida House Bill 408 went into effect in late May. And while this bill wont realistically change the increases this year nor affect next years an ticipated larger increases it is meant to ultimately stabilize and strengthen a struggling and volatile insurance market here in Florida. As consumers of in surance products, we must also realize that in dividual policy premiums in Florida are dictated, in part, by worldwide events. Its certainly dif ficult to imagine how a tsunami in Japan or a cy clone in Guam can affect our rates here, but that is exactly the case. In addition, insurance car riers, like any financial product, are guided quite strictly by investors who naturally expect a profit on their return. As a result of these and other factors, indi vidual premium increases have little or nothing to do with how many claims you have had in recent years, the longevity of your relationship with a House Bill 408 brings some clarity to Floridas insurance challenges carrier, or even the fact that Florida hasnt had a major event since 2005. Rate increases have everything to do with a carriers desire to be profitable for investors. If insurance companies are not profitable, inves tors will be discouraged from investing and these carriers will not be able to maintain reserves or pay claims. And, a recent study by Aon reported that insurance companies simply arent profitable enough. As you can see, provid ing coverage, satisfying investors, paying claims and offering affordable premiums are a delicate balance. These are simply the realities of a complex insurance sector that be comes even more convo luted in a high-risk state like Florida. Basically, House Bill 408 is geared toward strengthening the states insurance market. The following are some of the highlights: minimum capital and surplus from $5 million to $15 million for new insurers claims filing deadline for new and reopened claims from the date of a hurricane or windstorm. It is criti cal for condominium associations to ascer tain damage and file claims quickly so they dont exceed this time limitation and risk not getting a settlement. actual cash value, and hold back replacement cash value until there is a written contract for repairs. This requires consultation with an insurance agent so associations will know what funds will be paid and when in the event of a loss. This may require associations to build up additional reserves. sinkhole reforms The goal with this leg islation is to bring secu rity and predictability to the insurance market. It is also believed that 408 will strengthen existing in surers while also attract ing new insurance capital to the state. Once this is done, the market should become more competitive with more insurers com ing to Florida. Many people, espe cially board members of condominium associa tions, wonder why pre miums have increased significantly during the current renewal peri ods when there havent been any major events in recent years. In addition to taking into consider ation global trends and perceived unprofitability of insurance companies, there are other factors. One of the major rea sons is the sharp increase since 2007 in noncata strophic claims, which includes sinkhole dam age. Most of these claims come from an area known as sinkhole alley in Pas co, Hernando, Hillsbor ough, and Polk counties. There are, however, simi lar claims rolling in from other parts of Florida. State Farm, for example, paid $47 million in noncatastrophic claims in 2007. Last year it was up to $141 million. And, according to in dustry statistics, even without a catastrophe in the past five years, insur ance companies have not been able to build a sur plus. Only time will tell if this bill eliminates fraud, creates a competitive marketplace and brings quality carriers to Flori da. Alan S. Chesler is partner of Alan James Insurance, a diversified insurance brokerage with offices in Sunrise. One of the firms specialties is developing comprehensive insurance programs for condomini um associations through out Florida.

B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL If You Love Love, Youll Love One Day TheBocaRatonTribune.com Read A lot can change in one day. In the romantic comedy One Day, two college graduates meet on St. Swithins Day, July 15, and have an impetu ous fling that changes their livesbut not right away. St. Swithin has no bearing on University of Edinburgh graduates Emma Morley (Anne Ha thaway) and Dexter May hew (Jim Sturgess) other than it is a funny name reference in David Nich olls novel One Day. Nicholls adapted his novel and tapped Danish director Lone Scherfig (An Education) to helm this project. The fact that Scherfig is a woman with subtle sensibility helps balance the equation. One Day is equally about man and woman, and how they love. On that fateful gradu ation day July 15, 1988, Emma and Dexter meet. She is a seriousminded scholar with big Harry Potter wire-rim glasses and minimal makeup. He is a glib, handsome, frivo lous playboy type rather spoiled by his doting mother (Patricia Clark son) and a gruff but lov ing father (Ken Stott). Even when she is dressed-down, Anne Ha thaway (with convincing British accent) is a radi antly beautiful woman. Jim Sturgess is a remark ably good-looking guy, so they make an appealing couple. When they im pulsively make love on the night they meet, we intuit this will be more than a one-night stand, even though the morn ing after in the glare of day they vow to just be friends. And so on July 15 over the course of 20 years, Emma and Dexter meet and part again and again. Her trajectory is upward. She becomes a teacher, then writes the book she has always been threaten ing to do. Dexters personality and good looks make him ideal for television. For awhile Dexters career and finances soar as host of his own vapid, glitzy TV show. Emma acquires a de termined admirer in Ian (Rafe Spall), an aspiring comic who works a day job at the same restaurant where Emma works. Ian is a fool, but he is played with great dig nity by Spall, and Emma is such a compassionate person, we can see her be friending him out of pity. But we the viewers and readers know Emma and Dexter are destined for each other. When they meet in picturesque locales such as Paris and Calais, the mood is rapturous. Guided by Scherfig, Hathaway and Sturgess make us feel the giddy elation of love. Conversely, we feel loves flip side, the depths of despair. One Day is a firstclass weeper. It is also an ideal date movie. I sug gest seeing it with some one you love. You may just get lucky. Four stars Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway in One Day.

She has written ten books on beauty, diet and health. Turn your AM or PM cleansing routine into a mini facelift For over 35 years I have given myself a quick MINI FACE LIFT each night when I cleanse my face and neck. OK, it may take an extra minute, but it adds many more years of youthful-looking skin and remember to treat you neck the same as your face. This cleansing routine stimulates blood circulation without pulling the skin in the wrong direction. After just a little practice, it takes less than 5 minutes. Heres how it works. The principal success of massaging the face and neck is found in the skins own chemistry. Massaging the skin stimulates blood circulation, which in turn raises skin temperature causing the release of Se bum (oil) from your pores. When Sebum is lique fied it naturally penetrates through your pores helping to clean out clogged and enlarged pores, leaving the skin cleaner, more radiant and glowing. The stimula tion process also helps keep the collagen firmer under the skin. This is why I call it a Mini Face Lift. Heres My Personal Routine Yes, Every Night Before I Go To Bed! My daily routine cleans es the face, of course, but more so, at the same time, stimulates the blood cir culation of the face and neck without pulling the skin in the wrong direc tion, or stretching it. This is a routine I have kept up because of the long-range benefit of keeping the skin younger-looking for a lifetime. This stimulation helps bring more nutrition to your skins cells through the blood streamwhich is another reason to make sure your blood remains rich and healthy through proper nutrition. Step One: Apply cleans ing product on your face and neck with an upwardoutward motion using your favorite make-up re mover. (Oleda & Company has two great ones I use the Liquefying Make-up Remover). Using tissues or thin cloth (texture of cloth is good for the skin) apply make-up remover until all your make-up is off using a medium firm action. Do this until the tis sue or cloth remains clean. Do not pull down on the skin. Use an upward-out ward firm motion without stretching the skin. Step Two: Now you think your skin is clean? Well it may not be! Heres how to tell. Its a step that I do every time to make sure the pores of my skin do not have any traces of makeup and also to be certain all the make-up remover is off too. Leaving a-n-y-th-i-n-g in your pores will block the full benefit of the treatment of night cream you are about to apply be fore going to bed. (You are putting something on your skin before you go to bed arent you!!) To remove any residual from your skin, use a washcloth (has texture and you can buy cheap ones at a supermarket) and an astringent. Take the top off the container, if a sprayer top, remove it and dampen a spot on the cloth. Rub gently all over your face and neck. You may have to dampen several spots on the cloth, repeating the procedure, before you see nothing on your cloth. (Oleda and Company has an aloe vera based astrin gent, called High Potency Toner-Astringent). The astringent does several things. It protects your skin against bacteria, hydrates and restores the pH balance before apply ing night cream or mois ture cream and also helps tighten pores. Always use an aloe vera based astrin gent as it is a better protec tion against bacteria while hydrating it. Step Three: Now you are ready to apply your nightly skin treatment cream. If you do your mini face lift in the morning, a moisturizer should be used before applying make-up. If you dont apply make-up, the skin needs a moistur izer anyway. Within two weeks you will see a more beautiful tighter looking skin. BOCA RATON The Boca Raton Rotary Club Sunrise and Boca Raton Rotary Club West are hosting an exchange stu dent from Spain.

BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Gerald J. Sherman TM Email your Business News, promotions and acknowledgements to Chris Catoggio at: email@example.com. The Business of Doing Business Because of the many requests for a rerun of this article, I am submit ting the following. We would like to hear from you about What busi ness are you in?-and help you define your business. You may say thats an easy question to answer! Asking industry lead ers this question seems basic and simplistic. Is it? This is one of the classic questions that should be answered in depth for any business to survive and prosper in this turbulent mar ketplace. Many years ago the railroad companies were faced with serious financial problems; they were losing their mar ket share for passen ger travel and freight business. The truck ing industry was mak ing headway delivering freight across the na tion and airlines were taking away a good por tion of their passenger and freight business. We have to credit the marketing genius of Theodore Levitt, who coined the expression, What Business Are You In? Levitt used the railroad industry as an example of an in dustry not knowing the business they were in as a reason for their failure to prosper. (Theodore Levitt, "Marketing My opia", Harvard Business Review 38 (July-August 1960), 45-57, at 45, (Levitt 1960). As the story goes, the railroad industry leaders called upon con sultants to find ways of dealing with declining revenues and thus save their business. After studying the situation, the consultants asked the railroad tycoons the question, What busi ness are you in? We are in the railroad busi ness, they answered, and we certainly didnt need a consultant to ask us that. Finally the consul tants told them that the problem was that they are not in the railroad business but they are in the Transportation Business. The railroad execs were presumed to say, What else is new? What the consultants were trying to convey to the railroad execu tives is that being in the transportation busi ness meant that they would have to compete with the airlines and trucking companies. They also advised them to invest in ground and air transportation, by buying an existing trucking company or airline or organizing a new company. Mar keting by other means of transportation than theirs would be cru cial in these changing times. How about B & O Airlines & Overland Trucking services? But lo and behold the railroad folks would not take that advice and the rest is history! Although the railroad industry to day remains part of the transportation industry, total track-miles have fall en from 319,000 in 1970 to 170,000 and trucks still have to be called on to get most goods to a fi nal destination. Think of the pos sibilities if railroad companies acquired other means of trans portation to relate to the changing times. The railroad companies that remained have not shared in the growth of the booming trans portation business. The railroad industry was on the wrong track! Another example of a business defining it self and taking action is the telecommunica tions business. As we all know, todays telephone companies do not see themselves as only pro viding service of dial tone telephone access but own and partner with Internet provid ers, cable TV and sat ellite companies. They are not in the telephone business but in the elec tronic communication business and will be into any and all related electronic communica tion services to satisfy the demand of the vir tual market place. It is time that compa nies must redefine their business and ask them selves the question: What business are you in? By finding answers to this question you will be opening up new doors for future oppor tunities to expand your business. Gerald J. Sherman, MBA, DBA of Sher man & Perlman LLC, is a Boca Raton-based public relations & mar keting consultant and business coach. Sher man is also an author and has written several books and articles on these subjects. jerry@ shermanperlman.com http://www.shermanperl man.com 561.715.2788 BOCA RATON The Boca Raton Childrens Museum will hold a luncheon Aug. 30 as it pre pares for the October grand opening of its recent expansion.

Columnists The Boca Raton Tribune By Mike Gora Wildower redux Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. By Pr. Sandy Huntsman Control what we can, ignore what we cannot At a recent Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Com merce Breakfast, Mayor Su san Whelchels talk was a tour-de-force during which she convinced me that we would be a lot better off if she were president of the United States, or at least a re placement for Governor Rick. But what stirred my imagination most of all was when the mayor reached her long arm and hand straight through her microphone, pointed to me and said, Mike (actually to every one present), I need you to put that agile mind of yours to work to come up with at least three uses for that dern Wildflower. But not any uses, three uses that can make the city bundles and bundles of money, so we dont have to ever raise taxes. For the new folks on the block the Wildflower was a bar and restaurant on the NW side of the Palmetto Park Bridge over the Intra coastal. And a wild flower it was. Through two or three iterations it rose from the dead like a contentious vam pire to test morality limits of some of Bocas best known and highest placed ladies and politicians and business men. No, Im not naming names, not even to attempt to cause a few more divorces in this slow economy. I am not a story teller, but people tell me stories, and sometime I believe them, and sometime I do not. But if that banker was telling me the truth, I would like that property to go back to the most financial ly productive operation that the Wildflower ever knew. Lets call this my idea num ber . Boca Raton would earn more money than was raised by all the booze and sex sold on that very spot. What started me down this road was the mayors own words, bundles and bundles of money. Maybe wrapped in brown paper and twine. Maybe about five feet long and three feet wide. Maybe what they used to call a Square Grouper, Mary Jane, now whisper marijuana, and save the bales. Controlling the police department like they do, the mayor and city manager could make it easy to con duct such trade in the dead of moonless nights by hav ing the officers surround the mall for three or four hours to allow for the boat and truck traffic. They could even legalize the weed. We wouldnt even need to build much on the lot. A few of Neds Sheds and a lift of two and theyd be in business. We could authorize mj clinics like California. Money would be flooding into the coffers of Boca Raton faster than you could say Jack.no names please. So what could top that? I need another couple of ideas or I wont win the prize. Number two: Build to suit a small, but technically sophisticated federal prison. Name it Elba, for one and only one prisonerBernie Madoff. I can see it in my minds eye. A tower, only a couple of stories high, made entirely of glass. Glass, which would allow the tourists to look in. Yes, thats it: a combina tion federal prison and first class world renowned tourist attraction. Ive been to an other prison/tourist attrac tion in San Francisco Bay. No prisoners, but oh the tourists, in ferries, and launches from every direction. Coming to Boca Raton to take a verbal shot at Bernie for his dastardly deeds would raise millions for Boca Ra ton. Ticket payers with bull horns, allowing Bernie to hear every word that every poor guy who had invested with him had to say and ev erything that their mothers, fathers, children, aunts, un cles, and friends had on their minds. One more to go: Build the finest restaurant, card room, and senior dating center in the history of South Florida. Imagine a club for octoge narian Bridge mavens with great food, fine wine, and oc casional breaks with a myri ad of alternative recreation. Senior speed dating, ac commodations for those who win, a plush suite complete with Viagra or other suit able medications. Buses filled with seniors would pour into East Boca day and night. Picture them lining Palmetto Park Road from US 1 to the beach. Bermuda shorts and black socks. Our Palmetto, with spe cialty shops and wedding chapels of every design. Why, it would make Delrays Atlantic Ave pale by compar ison. One can only dream. By: Robert D. Foster I came across these ob servations some time ago, written by an unknown author. Although I cannot give proper credit where it is due, nevertheless these timeless insights are wor thy of our consideration. Read each thought and then, like a cow chew ing its cud over and over, meditate on it and apply the idea to your personal and professional circum stances: length of your life, but you can control your lifes width and depth. the weather, but you can control the moral atmosphere that sur rounds you. contour of your coun tenance, but you can control its expressions and what it communi cates to others. other persons oppor tunities, but you can make certain to take hold of the opportuni ties that come your way. larger incomes that some of your friends receive, but you can manage wisely your own modest earnings. another individuals annoying faults or hab its, but you can see to it that you yourself do not develop or harbor tendencies that would become annoyances to others. difficult times or rainy days, but you can put resources aside now that can carry you through times of ad versity and need. the distance that your head can rise above the ground, but you can control the height of the contents contained within your head. So why worry about things you cannot control? Get busy controlling the things that depend upon you! Dont worry about cir cumstances you cannot change. Concentrate on attitudes you can change! Here are some similar thoughts God gives to us in His guidebook for liv ing, the Bible: And we know that all that happens to us is work ing for our good if we love God and are fitting into His plans (Romans 8:28, Living Bible). Since the Lord is di recting our steps, why try to understand everything that happens along the way? (Proverbs 20:24).

That is why Mike Riskus just opened one of the first real boxing clubs in Boca Raton. If youve seen movies about boxing clubs you probably know that those who enjoy box ing are a strong and moti vated group. But if youve visited Riskus Boxing Club you know that boxing can be fun, challenging and so cial. Boxing is mentally and physically challeng ing you have to focus and concentrate. Our trainers give each person individu alized training and we try to introduce everyone so that there is a feeling of friendship and camarade rie among members, said Riskus, who started boxing competitively at the age of 4 and continues to coach and train members. This new 3,000-squarefoot facility, on Holland Drive just off Clint Moore Road, has a full-size boxing ring, heavy bags, speed bags, free weights, treadmills and weight machines. There is a powerful circuit train ing area with emphasis on speed, power and coordina tion, yoga and calisthenics. What is exciting about boxing (and other power exercises at this facility) is that it helps body con ditioning, weight loss, cardio-vascular workouts, improves speed and agility and is good for self-esteem and stress. What more could you ask? The time that I spend at Riskus Boxing Club is a mini-vacation from ev eryday stress. When I am boxing it requires all of my attention. It is as hard to do mentally as it is physically, but its always a challenge! I love it, said Rob Finizio CEO of Therapeutics MD. And Finizio isnt the only one enamored with this masculine bastion of workout fusion. Women are also joining the Riskus Box ing Club and sparring in the ring with male members. Theyve also found hitting a punching bag and working out in circuit training more fun than what they find in the local gym. Boxing is mentally challenging, said Riskus. Women have fun spar ring with the men and its a great adrenaline rush. We also make sure everyone has their own private coach so make the most of their time and they dont get bored. Riskus is also a big ad vocate of community ser vice work and of friend ship among his members. Just last month they did a project with Habitat for Humanity and many of the members joined in to help. The staff really cares about the clients we care about their mental health as well as their physical health. Its about team work, said Riskus, whose father Art was a profession al boxer who ran a boxing gym in their Pittsburgh basement. Riskus has competed in triathlons, has worked at health clubs and gyms and is a certified personal train er. Its not the number of years you do something, its the amount of time you spend learning and doing something to the best of your ability. Perfect prac tice makes perfect. I train beginners to the most ad vanced pros. Why is joining a boxing club better than a gym, we asked Riskus. Boxing is a science, an art and a meditation. Ev eryone gets a coach to help you set goals, help you with weight management, moni tor your progress and make sure you dont get injured. Youll become a great athlete with our carefully measured crosstraining exercises that emphasize speed, fluidity, power, stam ina, meditation, self-aware ness and even yoga. Boxing can be fun, social and challenging. Ask Mike Riskus Mike Riskus, owner of Riskus Boxing Club. The ring and its surroundings Jude Woolston bangs the bags Rob Finizio leans over the ropes

Pet Society The Boca Raton Tribune PET OF THE WEEK Coco is a sweet dog and you can take him home Coco is a 5 year old, neutered male, purebred, chocolate Labrador retriev er. He is a wonderful dog, who is very playful, loves to play fetch, and is good with other dogs. His adoption fee is only $54; please ask for ID#1583599. He is available at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, 7100 Bel vedere Road, West Palm Beach. All animals are ad opted out to qualified appli cants on a first-come-firstserved basis. Adopted dogs and cats come with a health care certificate, which must be used within seven days. It offers a free exam from one of the local participating veterinarians and includes health care if the animal becomes sick with a shel ter related illness within the first seven days of the adoption. The certificate is restricted and must be used by the adopter immediately. Pet adoptions are not handled by phone. Inter ested parties must visit the shelter to view and interact with the adoptable pets be fore making a final decision about adoption. For information, call the adoption office at (561) 233-1272 during business hours, M-F 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those living in the Boca/Delray area may call 276-1344 ext. 41272. More than 3,000 animals went home during the first seven days of the ASPCA $100K Challenge, marking an amazingly strong start to the three-month-long shelter competition to save more animals lives. Last weekend, contes tant shelters across the country stayed open all night and offered special promotions and discounts on adoption fees to get the public motivated and in the door. Many shelters shat tered their own records for most adoptions ina day or a week, said Bert Trough ton, ASPCA Vice President of Community Outreach. For the next three months, each contestant will continue to bring its best game in an effort to save at least 300 more animals than the same period in 2010. The shelter with the biggest increase in animals saved will win a $100,000 grant from the ASPCA. But it doesnt end there: This year, the ASPCA is awarding a total of $300,000 in grant prizes, including a whopping 15 $1,000 grants to the win ning shelters of the second annual $100K Challenge Photo/Video Contest. Thats where you come in! Did you adopt a cat or dog from one of the chal lenge shelters? Did you fos ter an animal or volunteer for one of the Challeng ers? Or perhaps you were reunited with your pet at a challenge shelter? If so, the ASPCA wants to see the evidence! Submit a photo or video, and you could help your local shelter contestant win a $1,000 grant. Check out the full list of contestants! Then share the contest URL www.aspca. org/100kphoto with your friends and neighbors by posting the link on Face book or Twitter. e dead line for entries is October 31. 3,000 pets go home during rst week of ASPCA $100K Challenge Customer Watch Dog...

While the couple was driving in, they saw two friends eating on the side of the curb because they were closed even though they should have been opened. Regardless, the couple went in to buy the pizza and they found out the pizza was two times more expensive at the store than it was online! This place charges you more and they close the dining room earlier than it should? THUMBS DOWN! Several people complained to the Tribune about the long wait for a table at Ruby Tuesday in Mizner Park last Saturday night. It wasnt the wait that bothered them, but, rather, the fact that they were told they would be seated within 20 to 30 minutes and were still waiting 90 minutes later. Many of the people walked out, saying they wish they had been told wait ing time would be very long. But also, after most of the large groups were seated, one of the attendants told the hostess, Lets seat the couples. In back of the restaurant were a number of two-person tables that were empty. But the restaurant apparently chose to seat the larger parties rst probably to make more money up front. The restaurant should be more honest with people who are spending their hard-earned money to enjoy a nice meal.

Let me make it quite clear that this does not detract from our avowed goal of providing the best football team this season, one that will challenge for the Sun Belt championship followed by the appropri ate bowl appearance, said Schnellenberger. The famed coachs career has been highly chronicled throughout the years, from winning the first National Champion ship as coach at the Uni versity of Miami in 1983 to ushering the University of Louisville from near obscurity to a top-20 na tional ranking. The legendary pro gram-builder has been at the helm for six bowl games and has walked away with a perfect 6-0 bowl game re cord, the most bowl victo ries for a coach with a per fect record. Schnellenberger is also among the top 10 active coaches in total victories with 157, and one of 10 active coaches who has captured a national title. Schnellenberger has one national title as a head coach and three national titles while an assistant at the University of Alabama under Head Coach Paul Bear Bryant. The FAU football men tor was also the offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins and was a part of the staff that earned a per fect 17-0 season, the only team in the NFLs history to finish the season unde feated and move on to win a Super Bowl championship. We are all going to miss Coach Schnellen bergers leadership and vi sion for FAU football. He has been the architect and builder of the program and has also grown it to great heights, said Craig Angelos, FAUs Athletic Director. Coach has ac complished many firsts that have created a solid foundation that will always be cherished and remem bered for generations to come. Schnellenberger has done so many great things for the football team, ath letics and the University. We all owe him a huge debt of gratitude for his 13 years of service. Look ing ahead, we are all ex cited that he will continue his work at the university to continue to raise funds and support for the new on-campus stadium and other university projects. Schnellenberger con cluded his career at both Miami and Louisville prior to an on-campus stadium being completed. At FAU, however, the Owls will take to the field on Sat urday, October 15 to play Western Kentucky Univer sity to open the 30,000-seat on-campus stadium that Schnellenberger inspired. Coach Howard Schnel lenbergers legacy as FAUs first football coach will remain with this uni versity forever, said FAU President Mary Jane Saun ders. His vision, remark able fortitude, unwavering leadership and dedication to the sport of football have been the strength be hind the development of the team and the remark able football stadium that will carry his legacy. We are forever grateful for his founding leadership of our football program, and I personally look forward to working with coach in his new capacity as our first Ambassador for Develop ment and Athletics. FAUs Board of Trust ees will always be thankful to Coach Schnellenberger for what he has done for this university, said An thony Barbar, vice chair of FAUs Board of Trustees. Schnellenberger put FAUs name on the na tional map in the area of athletics, and has created a foundation that FAU will continue to build upon in the years to come. tion, Ping has been mak ing clubs since the 1960s.
