Another said he was unable to drink tea or other beverages made with tap water because the taste was so bad.

Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -A new tradition is about to be born, one that will pair Lynn Universitys iconic symbol of the Knight with the famous legend of King Arthurs Round Table. As its name suggests, it has no head, implying that everyone who sits there has equal status. Starting this semester, Lynns student government association will reflect this type of structure. The Knights of the Roundtable will replace the former Student Government Association (SGA) and the traditional student government concept led by a president. Instead, 12 knights will be chosen to represent their different courts each court to represent various clubs, organizations and student interest groups. The 12 courts include: Community service, religion, special interest, Greeks, residential life, student athletes, academic, knights activities team, rec reation, commuters, graduate and evening, communication and members at large.Twelve Knights to replace Student Government System at Lynn Phil Riordan, vice president of student life, said he is excited because This will give 11 more students the opportunity to step up and the chance for all students to work together toward a common goal. It provides more involvement across the board, and offers more flexibility. There will be two meetings a month: one closed (for the 12 knights to meet separately) and one open to all members of the courts. Each court will meet individually as well. This is a unique approach that allows for more representation, says Riordan. In September, Student Life will host the inaugural Knights of the Roundtable meeting where all courts will get together to pick their knight.

You could be very adapted to the life in our new country, but Fourth of July will still be a very important date in your calendar every year. Thats what happens to many Brazilians who live in the United States. The Brazilians celebrate their independence day on September 7. On September 7 1822, Don Pedro I, the prince in charge of the Portuguese colony in Brazil, broke all ties with the royal crown of Portugal by declaring the Independence of Brazil. September 7th is a very important date for Brazilians all over the world. Many families get together to celebrate not only their independence, but their culture and things that remind them of their homeland. The Brazilian Congrega tion of Boca Glades Baptist Church in Boca Raton sees this day as a great opportunity to reach out to the Bra zilian community in West Boca Raton. The Igreja Baptista Boca Glades is throwing their Third Annual Brazilian Independence day festival this Saturday, September 4. Last year, the church had over 700 people attend and taste all the difference fla vors of Brazilian food and this year they are expecting over 1,500 people. This is a terrific opportunity for you to have a taste of Brazil without needing to leave the country. At the festival, there will be tents with each of the regions of Brazil, southeast, northeast, mideast, north, and south. Each tent will have special dishes that are typical to that region of the country. Last year, we had a great turnout but this year from the looks of it, it seems as if we will have the biggest crowd we have ever seen said the pastor of the church, Jose Uchoa. Not only will there be food, but there will be music. Throughout the event, there will be music sung, and danced. Entrance to the event is free but, there will be charg es for the food. All the money from the food they receive will be given to Missions. The Igreja Baptista Boca Glades is currently works with multiple organizations including The Joshua Project. Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world. Joshua Project gathers, integrates and shares people group information to encourage pioneer churchplanting movements among every ethnic group and to fa cilitate effective coordination of mission agency efforts. Joshua Project compiles the work of numerous missions researchers to develop a list of all ethnic peoples that is as complete as possible. The event will be held at Boca Glades Baptist Church in West Boca Raton starting at 4pm and going until 9pm on Sunday, September 4.

FAU received more than 24,600 freshman ap plications for admission for the fall 2011 semes ter, as well as more than 8,000 transfer applica tions both a record for the university. The FAU Graduate College also had a 2 percent increase in ap plications for the fall 2011 semester. For the first time in FAUs history, freshman applications were received from every county in the state of Florida. FAU received 4,627 applications from Broward County this year, a 42 percent increase. Duval County applications went from 206 to 729, a 254 percent increase, while Orange County applications increased from 451 to 1,159 applications, a 157 percent increase. Hillsborough County hopefuls sent 1,102 ap plications, an increase of 155 percent. Brevard County applications increased from 276 to 528, a 91 percent increase. And, the university received 2,915 applications from Palm Beach County, a 47 percent increase. Overall, FAU had an increase in applications from every Florida county. FAU President Mary Jane Saunders, along with FAUs Board of Trustees, has embraced the goal of transforming FAU into an institution of first choice for entering college freshmen. Academic programs have been complemented by collaborations with world-class research institutes and industry leaders, including Scripps Florida, the Max Planck Florida Institute, TorreyPines, and most recently, the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute. In addition, FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine was granted preliminary ac creditation by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education to offer an independent medical education program, which welcomed its charter medical school class in August. For the first time in FAUs history, there were more than 3,850 students who applied to live in the residence halls at FAUs Boca Raton campus. This increase clearly marks FAUs continued progression as a traditional uni versity. This semester also marks the grand opening of phase one of Innova tion Village Apartments, two apartment buildings totaling 489,000 square feet and providing 1,216 beds for upper-division and graduate students. The complex consists of a sevenand eight-story building, and features a mix of twoand four-bedroom, two-bathroom, ful ly-furnished apartments. New FAU students are back to class in record numbersBOCA RATON -To make bullying socially unacceptable in schools and society, Adam Mazo, former Palm Beach County resident, is bringing his award-winning film Coexist, straight from a Florida film festival to Palm Beach County high schools for the first time. The aim is to engage with students to discuss how othering, scapegoating and bullying can lead to serious violence and mass atrocities. The film will be shown Tuesday, Sept. 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at FAU High School in Boca Raton. It will also be shown that same day at Palm Beach Lakes Community High School from 7:30 to 11:10 a.m. Coexist explores the painful and personal stories of Rwandan genocide survivors as they are made to try to reconcile with perpetrators being released back into their communities from prison.Viewers say that Coexist masterfully captures the nuance and complexity of the process of dehumaniza tion and re-humanization that takes place during genocide and in its aftermath.Mazo and his colleague, Coexist Learning Director Dr. Mishy Lesser, work in schools and youth groups using the movie and companion Viewers Guide to challenge students to reflect deeply on their core beliefs. The team engages students in activities and dialogue about pressing issues like peer-pressure, name-calling and bullying, which directly impact the ability of youth to succeed and thrive. Since its premiere, we have witnessed how Coexist is a powerful tool to foster understanding about how violence escalates, how it can be interrupted, and the potential in each of us to be victim, perpetrator, bystander, and up stander, said Mazo. Teachers, students and community members are encouraged to attend this event so that we can begin a dialogue about violence prevention, and learn to coexist in peace with each other despite our differences, says Dr. Rose Gatens, Director of the Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education at Florida Atlantic University. The film is coming to Palm Beach County as a program of FAUs Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education. BOCA RATON -More than 500 new students arrived on Lynn Universitys campus last week to prepare for the start of a new school year.

Countries represented include Brazil, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, Venezuela, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. We are thrilled to welcome the largest incoming class over the past three years to Lynn's campus, said Gareth Fowles, vice president for enrollment management. In addition to being a large group, its also very diverse and reflects the international flavor of Lynn. I can't think of a better way to start the year in which we'll be celebrating our 50th anniversary. This is a strong start to Lynns 2011-12 academic year, an important year for the university. Lynn will learn if it will host a 2012 presidential election debate this fall semester, and during the spring semester the school plans to celebrate its 50th anniversary and unveil the Remembrance Plaza, a permanent memorial to the four students and two Lynn faculty who died in the 2010 Haiti earthquake while serving others.

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor The world is filled with people who like to boast about the things they always hoped to do, but never did. Then, there are those who accomplish great things quietly and never spend much time talking about them. Stephen Ladika fits into the second category. My association with Mr. Ladika was brief, and it has now ended. Stephen Ladika passed away last week at the age of 83. In that short time, I found out many things about this gentle and quiet man largely from others who had associated with him. I learned that Mr. Ladika had been the president and chief executive officer of Boca Raton Community Hospital (now Boca Raton Regional Hospital) through the 1980s, retiring in 1988. Before that, he was a Catholic priest, and had faithfully served God for 13 years before he was given permission to leave the priesthood to marry Maryann Denz. They raised two children, imparting to them the importance of faith, kindness and a sense of fair play. Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle remembered Steve and Maryann La dika when my wife and I recently spoke with her. She recalled serving on the Hospital Board when Ladika was in charge. The Countess spoke of his kindness and gentle manner, and how well he received her request that Board minutes be kept meticulously. Even to this day, she remembers the wonderful cookies that Maryann used to make. (Mrs. Ladika passed away in 2004). Mayor Susan Whelchel, during the presentation last year of a proclama tion to Stephens son, Matt Ladika, CEO of Home Safe, recalled living in the same neighborhood as the Ladika family and remembered Matt as a small boy in that neighborhood. The fond memories of the Ladika family have lasted many years. Stephen Ladika sat proudly near the front of the Council Chambers as his son Matt accepted the award. I suspect Stephen La dika was more comfortable talking about others than about himself. I found a quote from Mr. Ladika in a story about Eugene Lynn, a major contributor to the hospital whose widow, Christine, continues to donate. He always stressed quality of care, Steven Ladika said of Lynn. Pa tients always came first. Physicians never received a negative vote when it came to the purchase of equipment as long as it contributed to the quality of care. Mr. Ladika had high praise for hospital auxiliary members. In a letter to the Board, he wrote: For the most part, these miracle workers are my senior in age and probably have more aches and pains than I. And heres the clincher -they dont even get a paycheck! Why are they smiling? Why are they here at all? Well, they are being paid. They are receiving daily deposits in an account that money cant buy. The love they generate accrues interest a hundredfold. The help they give others is their reward. But let me tell you, the example they set for us employees is worth a million.`` Ive scoured the Internet to find information about Mr. Ladika. But what I found were mainly his comments about the good that others have done. Jerry Fedele, the current president and CEO at Boca Hospital, offered the following comment: Mr. Ladika served our institution exceedingly well in a number of signifi cant capacities, including president. Not only was he respected as an accom plished executive, but was also genuinely liked for his engaging personality and demeanor. He will be greatly missed by the entire Boca Regional family. It was probably no coincidence that Mr. Ladika passed away at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, the institution where he did so much good and where his legacy is still strongly felt. But he leaves loving children and grandchildren who will no doubt carry on the lessons they learned from their father and grandfather. And as Mr. Ladika learned when he was in Gods service, death is not the end of life, but only a step to another existence where his remarkable work on earth will be rewarded.Dear Dale, Great editorial (about autumn in New England) I shared it with a number of folks back home.makes me want fall.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. By Douglas Heizer Preparation for Hurricane Irene was good practice for storm season Approach Without Reproach! If youre sitting at home today with 20 gallons of gasoline in the garage, 10 jars of peanut butter in the cupboard, about 100 batteries and a weather radio all cranked up and ready to go, dont feel bad. About a week ago at this time, TV and ra dio meteorologists were warning us that Hurricane Irene was heading our way. And while it seemed to be nudging its way to the east, emergency officials warned us to get ready just in case the storm shifted. Well, it did take a shift away from us, but right on course with the Carolinas and eventually the Northeast. The storm battered many of these places more seriously than they had been in decades. North Carolina, New Jersey, Vermont, Massa chusetts and Rhode Island all seemed to suffer a knockout blow from the storm that barely raised a few gusts of wind around South Florida. If you stocked up on supplies and kept tuned to radio and TV news during the storms approach, you did the right thing. And dont think yourself foolish because you have a house full of goods that may take a long time to use up. We are at the height of hurricane season and will be for another month or so at least. (Dont forget, Hurricane Wilma struck on Oct. 24, 2005). And it had already passed us when it turned around and shot across the Everglades to slam Palm Beach County. We do feel very, very bad for the many people up north who remain without power and who are still cut off from civilization because of floods and roads that have literally been ripped up and demolished. Fox and CNN have been focusing on those stricken areas and the images weve seen are heart-wrenching. Dale King, the Tribunes managing editor, said he has been in contact with both his brothers in Massachusetts, and they are safe. His wife has also heard from her family in Rhode Island and they also managed to weather the horrendous storm. We should all take heart that we missed this one. But 40 people or more are dead from a storm they didnt expect. That is a terrible tragedy. But even before Irene had made her way up the coast, another tropical storm Jose had formed in the Atlantic and ba sically went no where. Then, we were told about another tropical depression moving off the coast of Africa. We must remain on guard. We at the Boca Raton Tribune have published periodic reminders about what to do in case of a hurricane. Hopefully, you have cut these articles out and made them part of your preparation kit. We hope and pray that the hurricane season will be calm. But we have seen one destructive storm nudge by just like Ka trina did a few years ago on is way to destroy New Orleans. So dont feel silly if you start to stockpile goods when a storm is coming this way. After all, its better to be safe than sorry. Theres no better ingredient than tact, when seeking contact with other people. The same must be maintained if the new contact is to endure and become mutually edifying. Charles Swindoll reminds that all of us are drawn to those whose faces invite us in and urge us on. Those who approach people with a yes face, more than likely will connect with others if a positive posture can be maintained from that moment on! Meeting others needs to be carried on in a calm, sincere way. From the outset, a person you meet must perceive sincerity in your intentions; the interest you manifest is to be in the individual rather than in whatever he or she can do for you. As the late Elton Trueblood had proposed, we must let our lives speak, before our words can be heard! Its far better when you talk less about yourself and more about the discernible, valuable qualities you encounter in this new ac quaintance. If you appear before anybody with a hidden agenda, your tricks will be quickly discovered and you, yourself, may be just as swiftly dismissed from a potential, ongoing relationship of mutual trust. Once I saw a poster that illustrates these concerns very accurately. It states that, great people talk about ideas; average people talk about things; small people talk about other people. A reality which cannot be denied is that the enthusiasm of some persons in calling attention to other peoples faults will in no way erase or hide the evidence of their own mistakes! Even if you may be ac curate on your fault-finding in somebody else, you are not justified in maintaining that practice since you also are not without blemish. Jesus addressed the human bent on hypoc risy, when he complained in His Sermon on the Mount, And why do you look at the speck in your brothers eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? (Matthew 7:3). Author Jack Kahl comments that the world revolves around relationships between people, and trust is at the heart of all human relationships. Care should be given to develop and retain high quality relationships for mutual benefits. Be pure in your motiva tion and sincere in your approach to people. Be sure that the image you wish to project to others corresponds to good intentions you purpose to bring into the relationship. Be sensitive to the peculiarities of other people! Remember that several factors which may make you attractive to some may be void of the credibility necessary to establish solidity in your interactions with them and with others.

Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office Community Policing Unit and Street Team conducted an undercover opera tion targeting street level prostitution on South Military Trail in suburban West Palm Beach on Aug. 24. The operation resulted in the arrest of 8 female prostitutes, (5 for soliciting prostitution, and 3 for trespassing) and 15 male Johns for soliciting a prostitute for a grand total of 23 arrests.PBSO nabs 23 in prostitution stingBOCA RATON -Citizens Crime Watch of Boca Raton, city officials and the Boca Raton Police Services Department recently celebrated a 30-year partnership with Crime Watch. City Clerk Susan Saxton read the proclamation and Crime Watch representatives presented the city and police department with a plaque honoring the milestone. The mission of Citizens Crime Watch of Boca Ra ton is to reduce crime within the Boca Raton Community through citizen participation in cooperation with the Boca Raton Police Services Department. Members maintain neighborhood networks, attend meetings and work with Boca Raton Crime Prevention Officers who teach them how to reduce the opportunities for crime and how to look for and report suspicious activity to the police. Citizens Crime Watch of Boca Raton was founded in 1981.Crime Watch honors city of Boca Raton and Boca Raton Police Members of Citizens Crime Watch of Boca Raton along with Chief Dan Alexander and Boca Raton Police Crime Prevention Officers Kurt Brower, Craig Kolnick and Gwynne Friters. BOCA RATON ExState Rep. Adam Hasner has tapped former Speaker of the House Allan Bense to chair his campaign for U.S. Senate in the 2012 election. Hasners campaign also received the endorsement of Bense, he said in a letter to his supporters. Speaker Bense is a proven limited-government conservative who worked shoulder-to-shoulder with Jeb Bush to advance a mainstream conservative agenda during his time as Speaker of the House, Hasner said. As a businessman, Allan understands how big government, out-ofcontrol spending, and mountains of foreign debt limit our ability to grow jobs in America, said the candidate. As a common sense conservative, he understands that our economy and people flourish when government promotes more freedom by taxing less, spending less and regulating less, Hasner added. I am proud that I got the chance to serve alongside Speaker Bense in the Florida House, and I am honored he is lending his support to our campaign.Hasner taps ex House speaker to lead his U.S. Senate campaign Adam Hasner Hasner, a Republican, is one of several who have announced they will challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.BOCA RATON Boca Police said that on Monday, Oct. 25, 2010, just after noon, the resident of a Nottingham Road dwelling arrived home to find an unknown male inside her house. The male said to her, "Don't call the police, I have a gun," but did not display a weapon. Police said the suspect then casually walked to where he left his backpack and left via the front door. When investigators processed the scene, they found blood both inside the house and outside around where a window screen was cut. They also recovered several latent fingerprints. On Nov. 1, 2010, detectives were notified that a fingerprint recovered from a pair of sunglasses found in the back yard of the vic tim's residence belonged to Robert Heyner, 44. Detectives spoke with Heyner's family members who said they did not know where he was staying and had not seen him. On August 17, 2011, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Forensic Biology Unit notified Boca Raton detectives that the blood evidence submitted for analysis identified the DNA as belonging to Robert Heyner. Detectives spoke with the victim who said she does not know Heyner, and she has never allowed him in her house. A day later, detectives filed for a warrant for the arrest of Heyner for armed burglary, armed robbery, grand theft and criminal mischief. Police said Heyner is currently in Broward County Jail on unrelated charges.DNA links alleged burglar to 2010 incident Continued from front pagenotice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. If you are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine, keep an open container of drinking water in your refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. A customer service representative contacted by the Boca Raton Tribune Wednesday said the same thing. The additional chlorine will mean additional work for some in the county, officials said in their statement. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. The flushing is needed periodically, officials said, to maintain high quality in the countys water distribution system. Hydrant flushing is also being increased as a preventative maintenance measure.

Police said the first was an unarmed heist about 12:50 in the afternoon. The victim and her sister were sitting at a bus stop on NE 20th Street, when they were approached by a male on a dark colored bicycle. They engaged the male in conversation about the bus schedule and when he pointed east, they looked in that direction and the male grabbed a thin gold necklace from around the victims neck. The suspect left west towards Dixie Highway where they lost sight of him. The second robbery, police said, occurred on Aug. 22 about 12:30 a.m. The victim was walking to her car parked at 1 South Ocean Boulevard. As she approached her car she noticed two males walking toward her. Police said she got into her car and as she was trying to close the door, one man grabbed it, forced it open and demanded her bag. The two suspects were both armed with black semi-automatic handguns, said police. While one suspect took her bag and her GPS, the other suspect went to the passenger side of the car and rifled the glove box. The suspects left north on foot on State Road A1A, then west on Palmetto Park Road.

Six Years is a produc tion to be admired, not loved. The heavy-hitting drama by Sharr White continues through Sept. 4 at Caldwell Theatre Company, 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton. The title refers to the six-year-intervals of the plays five scenes. Scene one is set in 1949 in a St. Louis motel. Phil Granger (Todd Allen Durkin), a dazed and confused World War II veteran, has returned to his distraught wife Meredith (Margery Lowe). Meredith is distraught because Phil simply disappeared in 1944, when he stopped writing home. Phil never told Meredith where he was or what had happened to him. Phil has a really bad case of what we now call Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Back then he would have been labeled shellshocked. While the couple has been reunited, their relationship will never be smooth. Phil has a volatile temper and severe mood swings. Meredith has filed preliminary divorce papers. The role of Phil is a challenging opportunity, and Todd Allen Durkin runs with it in his Caldwell debut. He can be charming and funny one moment, ac idly sarcastic the next, and frighteningly furious without warning. The role of Meredith is much less flashy. Mostly it is that of suffering, but Margery Lowe conveys real pain, and when she finally begins to stand up for herself, we feel her pride.Six Years Admirable, Tough at Caldwell Theatre Todd Allen Durkin and Margery Lowe in SixYears.Other roles are more sketchily drawn. The Grangers son Michael (Michael Focas) is hardly there; a casualty of war if you will. Merediths brother Jack Muncie (Gregg Weiner) has some short, powerful moments of interaction with unpredictable Phil. With the couples marriage in shambles, two additional characters are introduced into the Grang ers marital drama. Tom Wheaton (David PerezRibada) is only too happy to provide a shoulder to cry on, and more for Meredith. Dorothy (Betsy Graver) is a seductive character who is shocked witness to one of Phils scariest breakdowns in a California motel. Director Clive Cholerton uses video projections and vintage recordings to depict the five different eras. Tim Bennetts set utilizes a turntable to enable quick, smooth scene changes. Six Years is mostly about bad stuff: war, mental instability, infidelity, cruelty, divorce, the rise of cookie-cutter suburbs and even the effects of bad diet. In short it is a lot like real life, and real life, as most of us know, is never a picnic. But if you are looking for thought-provoking commentary, heartfelt acting and historical reference, you should find much to admire in Six Years Tickets are $38-$50.

The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Our paper is filled with so many wonderful stories of local leaders and orga nizations working together to create a stronger community. But with the volatile economy, many have wondered if we can still afford to be socially responsible. The answer was a resounding "yes!" from a distinguished panel of entrepreneurs who recently spoke at Palm Beach State College. Representing Boca Ra ton was businesswoman/ philanthropist Yvonne Boice, who joined Suzanne Mulvehill, vice mayor of Lake Worth; Mark Llano, founder of Source One Distributors and Sandra Foland, owner of Baron Sign Manufacturing. Each speakers' personal story proved how important being community-focused was to each of their success stories. And no matter how busy they were striving for their goals and overcoming challenges, each found time to devote to their passion for helping others. The seminar began with a presentation by Mohit Mukherjee, director of UPEACE, Centre for Executive Education U.N. Mandated University for Peace. The Harvard-educated Mukherjee gave an overview of the principles of social entrepreneurship and social responsibility, then handed the discussion over to the panel who provided their real world experiences. Boice, well-known for her dedication to important cultural institutions locally, such as Palm Beach International Film Festival and the Centre for the Arts, and nationally, with her service to the National Endowment of the Humanities, inspired the audience with her triumphant business success story. Boice is the long-time owner of the prosperous Shoppes at Village Pointe on 18th Street. Many assumed that being a business owner was Yvonne's calling. It was not. The plaza had been her husband Grant's dream. But when he passed away unexpectedly, Yvonne was left with a daunting challenge: How to fill the recently built center that was only 30 percent occupied. Many would have simply sold the property, but Yvonne was determined to make her husband's dream a reality. One of the keys of social responsibility is looking to solve a problem when you build your business, and Yvonne did just that. She saw the need for a plaza that suited the everyday needs of the family and she created that environment, crafting a unique atmosphere that offered day care, dance classes, karate, ice cream, restaurants, fashion/style, shipping, insurance, a nightlife and more! That model works as well today as it did 25 years ago. The success of the plaza then afforded Yvonne the opportunity to focus on her avocation: travel. And while she has enjoyed many glamorous sojourns, it's been her international travels representing the US in the Middle East, Asia, South America and more that have truly touched Yvonne. It has been through these journeys that she has made an incredible impact on the lives of women around the globe. During these trips Yvonne imparted her business knowledge to women in a way that empowered them to take on new roles in their towns and countries. The story that impacted the PBSC audience, however, was the courageous declaration she made at the Moroccan Film Festival. "I was asked for ideas to help stop the degradation of women in Morocco," she explained. "So I suggested they create a film contest that would portray women in a positive, empowering light, and that I would bring the winner of the By Kay Renz The Importance of Giving Back; Yvonne Boice at PBSC Speaking recently at Palm Beach State College were, from left, Suzanne Mulvehill, Yvonne Boice, Mohit Mukherjee, Dr. Bernadette Russell, Mark Llano, Sandra Foland.contest to the Palm Beach International Film Festival. They loved the idea and I was asked to speak at the Moroccan Film Festival. However, my prepared remarks went out the window when the male speaker before me addressed the audience and remarked that women will always be portrayed as victims and this is how it should be." Yvonne publicly railed against those comments and won the hearts of all those fighting for justice! Yvonne's standing up for those who could not, proved the very important point that the PBSC panelists all were eloquently stressing, we all must be socially responsible. And for every person, that means a different thing, whether it's preserving the environment, creating a business that solves a social ill, or inspiring others with your experience and passion. It's our responsibility to create a world that is a better place and we all have the power to do that. As witnessed by the amazing stories and people we often profile in the Boca Tribune. We have so much to be proud of!

Fraser Dalgleish, Ph.D., director of the FAU ocean visibility and optics lab at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office pursuant to his Method and Apparatus for Synchronous Laser Beam Scanning patent application, an indication that the patent has been allowed for registration. Phoenix-based Lincoln Laser Company provided essential technology and testing consultation, and shares patent rights. Mapping the ocean floor by optical means is complicated by factors such as variability in wa ter opacity and particulate composition, high seabed relief and the presence of ambient light. Synchronous laser beam scanning compensates for these challenges, permitting identificationquality image resolution at distances well beyond that required for similar quality using a typical camera and light source, as well as the potential for improvement in 3-D imaging of underwater scenes when compared to sonar. Strategies include use of a pulsed laser, separa tion of laser source and sensor, and coordinated sweeping movement of the laser and sensor to simultaneously target the same specific, limited area and produce a mosaic image of the seafloor. Although the system set a new standard for undersea laser imaging performance, current research focuses on further improvements in the performance, size and affordability of laser line scan technology. As such, this soon-to-be patented platform is used as a labora tory validation tool for ongoing research. Harbor Branch and Lincoln Laser are in the process of building a system for the U.S. Navy Naval Air Systems Command. In addition to scientific characterization of marine habitats, undersea laser imaging has national defense applications. Designing and veri fying systems like this requires leading industry professionals, using the latest software tools and advanced fabrication and testing facilities, said Dalgleish. Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University is a research institute dedicated to exploration, innovation, conservation and education related to the oceans. Harbor Branch was founded in 1971 as a private non-profit organization. In December 2007, Harbor Branch joined Florida Atlantic University.Harbor Branch patent to describe state-of-theart undersea laser imaging

Columnists The Boca Raton TribuneBy Mike Gora The Crying Lady A Labor Day poem Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. By Pr. Sandy Huntsman The lady in New York harbor stands upon her pedestal, Crying tears the size and weight of boulders, as she Gazes on her people from sea to shining sea. The manifest destiny of the golden dream crumbling around her. Its Labor Day, 2011. The stench of labors fruit lost and labor to be lost permeates From New York, to Miami, to Chicago, Los Angeles, And all points in between. Labor Day mocks reality, and becomes A memory, rather than a dream. Seeing all, as always, does not itself supply her answers to the questions: How did this happen? Why? When did the quest for economic freedom Turn into a rabid search for lucre? When did the promise of liberty and justice for all Turn the rich against those less fortunate? When did the purpose of our being, religious freedom, turn into only the freedom To engage in ones own religion, to the exclusion of all others? When did it occur to the elderly that their bowl of long saved rewards of past labor Had sprung leaks caused not by their own foolishness, but the greed of others, and the Gross negligence of their elected representa tives who, on this very La bor Day, Would rather overcome political rivals than to solve the nations problems? When did it occur to the younger generations that their birthright to Freedom, liberty, and real possibility had been traded in For fools gold by those who came before them? Our harbor lady hopes: Perhaps this disease is temporary, That the real America would rise again on the shoulders of new leaders, Born from the ashes of the of theses disasters. Politicians honestly pledged to do whats best for the country And not just for themselves, or a handful of narrow minded people with loud voices, And agenda based upon greed and not upon the na tions future, Or the future of their fellow citizens. The sun shines upon her face, and a smile almost appears. Faith, she thinks. Faith in these good people that she was sent to celebrate. Faith and hard work, always The key on Labor Day.Having eyes and seeing are often two different things. Sometimes people without the gift of sight have the greatest insight. Malcolm S. Forbes stated the best vision is insight. Insight is the ability to discern the true nature of a situation. A businessman was late for an important meeting and couldnt find a parking space. As he frantically circled the block, the man got so desperate that he decided to pray. Looking up toward heaven, he said, Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking space, Ill go to church every Sunday for the rest of my life, and not only that, Ill give up drinking. Mirac ulously, a parking space appeared. The guy looked up again and said, Never mind. I found one. (Submitted by John Beukema, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania; www.preachingtoday.com) Some people go through life with their eyes closed. They look but they dont see. Their obsession with surface things causes them to omit the deeper things. They see images but never get the issues. The evidence could be as clear as the nose on their face, but they cannot see it, because they simply refuse to see it. It reminds me of an old Persian proverb which says: He who knows not, and knows NOT that he knows not, is a fool; shun him. He who knows not, and KNOWS that he knows not, is a child; teach him. He who knows, and knows NOT that he knows, is asleep; wake him. He who knows, and KNOWS that he knows, is wise; follow him. Sight is a function of the eyes; insight a func tion of the mind and heart On more than one oc casion, Scripture refers to those who have ears and hear not and have eyes but see not. The prophet Jeremiah writes the same in his book (5.21) Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not. The problem isnt always overt rebellion or stubborn resistance but many times pride and insensitivity. All of us are guilty of thinking we know something when we dont and certainly misjudging someone before we have even heard the evidence. I have met many a person who didnt want to be confused with the facts, because they thought they already thoroughly understood the issue. H. G. Wells once wrote a short story called The Country of the Blind. Its about an inac cessible, luxurious valley in Ecuador where, due to a strange disease, everyone is blind. After 15 generations of this blindness there was no recollection of sight or color or the outside world at all. Finally a man from the outside a man who could see literally fell into their midst. He had fallen off a high cliff and survived, only to stumble into their forgotten country. When he realized that everyone else was blind, he remembered the old adage: In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. Even the disciples who were followers of Jesus often didnt understand the things he was saying. In Mark 6.52 it says they did not understand because their heart was hard. William Barclay says the word hard in this passage means they were insensitive, dull, blunt-brained, obtuse. They were not that way by nature, but by choice! We all must learn to open our eyes and think. We must create an atmosphere conducive to learning. We must learn to discern....Pastor Sandy Huntsman Boca Glades Baptist Church www.bocaglades.org Discernment

It can give you a different prospective and an opportunity to see things in a different light. For now, I would like to consider the unemployment problem that has an affect on everybody today. Lets look at some of the statistics: As of December 3, 2010 Household Survey Data indicated that the number of unemployed persons was 15.1 million in November 2010 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). Today we find that American companies are increasing hiring but oftentimes in foreign markets. According to the Economic Policy Institute, companies created 1.4 million jobs overseas this year but fewer than 1 million domestically. National Public Radio/ The Associated Press (12/28/2010). In 2009, there were 24.7 million businesses in the United States, ac cording to Office of Advocacy estimates. Six million companies employ personnel and about 18 million do not. Small firms with fewer than 500 employees represent 99.9 percent of the total. Small businesses employ about half of U.S. workers. Of 120.6 million non-farm private sector workers in 2007, small firms employed 59.9 million and large firms employed 60.7 million. (Source: Commerce, Census Bureau and trends from the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Business Employment Dynamics.) One of my friends complained that her boss was giving her work that two people formerly performed. She said downsizing is being used by companies to show big ger profits. Cutting down the number of employees is being used to reduce overhead. Non-paying internship jobs are being used by companies to avoid hiring full time personnel. Thats what is happening in the real world. Lets start thinking out of the box and come up with dramatic ideas to find a solution to our countrys unemployment problem. The government has made an attempt at providing inducements to employers who hire the unemployed in the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment. (HIRE), Act of March 18, 2010. But as you will see its not enough of an incentive for employers to make it significant in dramatically reducing the numbers of unemployed. The HIRE act states that employers who hired unemployed workers after Feb. 3, 2010 and before Jan. 1, 2011 might qualify for a 6.2percent payroll tax incentive. In addition, for each worker retained for at least a year, businesses may claim an additional general business tax credit, up to $1,000 per worker. There is talk about additional employer incentives for new hires. Lets see what happens! I do not profess to have the answers but, I thought that maybe an out of the box idea might stimulate others to tap their brain power to get businesses motivated to do new hires. Lets target the 50 percent of the 27.4 million companies and give them a reason to hire just one person. It would virtually eliminate the current unemployment emergency. But you gotta have a program that stimulates the hiring process. The question arises, why should big and small businesses hire additional personnel with todays economic conditions? Lets think what would motivate a business to do new hires? IncentivesIncentivesIncentives Heres my out of the box suggestion: Give each company that hires a new employee a generous tax write off. I would suggest 50 percent tax rebate based on the new employees gross salary during the first year, and an additional 25 percent tax rebate for each of the next two years. This might encourage many employers to hire. Of course there would have to be certain caveats. New hires must be retained for at least full one year to be eligible for this program. Also, if employers fire current employees to replace them with new hires without just cause during this period, they would lose the deductions and have to reimburse the government for any and all tax benefits they received. Such a program may seem difficult to administer at first but, all new programs are. If we can get a person to the moon we can certainly find a way to administer it. So what would the government have to gain? More tax money from the employees Social security contributions More money will be spent by new hires Less unemployment payments It would be the best ROI by the government. What are some of your out of the box ideas to create jobs? Send them to me or send them to your representatives in DC. Lets eliminate unemployment and lets do it now!Thinking Out Of The BoxGerald J.

FREE PICK UP & DELIVERY Call Today! By Carter Helshien Teen LifeThe Boca Raton Tribune Benets of Being a Child in Todays EconomyThough these may seem like dark times, I cant help but see the positive aspects of being a teenager and growing up in a poor global economy. Though it may sound strange at first, I believe that there are some unique, distinct benefits to the genera tion that is growing up in this poor economy. It is my strong opinion that the current generation of children will have a greater sense of frugality as adults than their parents, some of them baby boomers, who were raised in a period of great affluence for the United States. Through out this article, I will refer to my generation, the current generation of children born between the early 1990s and the early 2000s, as Genera tion Z. Due to the fact that the parents of Generation Z, Generation Y, were typically raised in an environment where earning money seemed an easy task and there was plenty to go around, that generation grew up taking the value of money for granted. As a result, as my gen eration witnesses the difficult economic times that our parents are facing today, with millions of Americans out of work and struggling to make a living, we have come to understand seeminglycomplex, yet vital skills for future success. One such skill my generation is learning through the trials and tribulations of our parents is the important skill of fiscal responsibility. In contrast to Gener ation Y, our parents, who typically spent money lavishly and without concern for the unforeseeable future, my generation will keep the lesson close to heart that the economic state of any nation can change at any given moment. Consequently, my generation, Generation Z, will be extremely careful with how we spend and invest our money, knowing that we will be well-prepared if the time comes where the economy takes a turn for the worse and people suddenly struggle to make a living. Moreover, because Generation Z is being raised in a time where most families can only afford the bare essentials and perhaps minor extravagances, we will be more inclined to live our lives modestly and avoid abundant spending. Ac cordingly, as I mentioned earlier, the current generation of children are being raised with a sense of fiscal responsibil ity already ingrained into their subconscious. Whether we have realized it or not, Generation Z has inherently learned that money should not be taken for granted, but rather saved and spent sparingly, never wasted. In reality, parents today who are worrying about not providing their children with all the gifts, trips, and vaca tions they would like to, have nothing to worry about at all. Without even knowing it parents are giving their children the best gift they can possibly give, that of providing their children with the skills necessary in having a successful future, by demonstrating those very same skills in these difficult economic times. It is for that reason that in the future the members of Generation Z will thank the mem bers of Generation Y, not only for teaching us all the values that we will base our lives around but for showing us how to have a successful, happy life.

Goals by FC Tampa Bays Aaron King and Mike Ambersley brought down the Strikers in the third of four regular season matchups this season between the in-state rivals. We were beat by a better team tonight, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. We cant make excuses, it seemed like they wanted the game more and that it meant more to them. Its quite befuddling because it was a big game for us. We came out flat even though we had a good week of practice. In the first half, FC Tampa Bay midfielder Tsuyoshi Yoshitake made a long run down the left side and swung across into the middle of the box. The ball was redirected by Mike Ambersley to the feet of Aaron King, who slotted it home into the lower righthand corner past goalkeeper Matt Glaeser. The Strikers best chance in the first half came from forward Polo Morales in the 28th minute when he received a ball from a running Brian Shriver and fired it on goal from point blank range. The shot was pushed out of bounds by Tampa Bays Jeff Attinella. FC Tampa Bay added to their lead in the 77th minute. An errant back pass fell to the feet of Mike Ambersley, who rounded Glaeser and was alone on goal. His shot inside far post finished off the match and put the Coastal Cup, the trophy for the in-state rivalry between the two squads, back in FC Tampa Bays hands. The loss tonight keeps the Strikers in sixth place in the NASL, the final playoff spot. They are just three points clear of the Montreal Impact who won tonight. With the win, FC Tampa Bay is now five points clear in third place and sit comfortably to clinch a spot in Fort Lauderdale falls 2-0 to cross-state rival FC Tampa Bay; Maintain Playoff Position the NASL playoffs. The Strikers play their next two games at home against the MLS-bound Montreal Impact on September 3 and the leagueleading Carolina RailHawks on September 7. The final regular season home game will be on September 17 against the Atlanta Silverbacks. DELRAY BEACH -2003 US Open champion Andy Roddick will headline the ATP World Tour event while tennis Hall of Famer Ivan Lendl will lead the eight-player ATP Champions Tour event at the 20th annual Delray Beach International Tennis Championships next February, tournament officials have announced. The combined ATP tennis event, played at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center, has been moved back one week on the ATP calendar to February 24 March 4. "Our 2012 field is off to a flying start with Andy and Ivan on board," said Delray Beach ITC tourna ment director Mark Baron. "We look forward to welcoming Andy back and seeing him play great tennis, and having Ivan play in Delray Beach for the first time is something I am looking forward to. He redefined the game." Roddick has been the most successful American over the last decade and enjoyed a five-year run in the Top 5. The 28-year-old former Boca Raton resident has reached the finals of five Grand Slams and in 2003 became the youngest American ever to be ranked No. 1 at the age of 21. "I am really looking forward to returning to Delray," said Roddick, winner of 30 ATP titles and 33 US Davis Cup singles matches second only to John McEnroe. "I have a lot of great memories playing so close to where I grew up. You can truly feel the local support of the fans and the city for the tournament." Lendl, the eight-time Grand Slam champion who has lived in Florida for more than a decade, will headline an eight-player ATP Champions field that also includes fellow Grand Slam champions Mats Wilander and Pat Cash. "I am very much looking forward to playing in Delray Beach in February," said Lendl, who was inducted into the Interna tional Tennis Hall of Fame in 2001. "I have heard many good things about the event and it will be enjoyable to play against my old rivals in front of fans who really appreciate tennis." The Czech-turned US citizen was the world's No. 1 player for 270 weeks during his career, and he was the year-end No. 1 four times (1985-87, 1989). He played in eight consecutive US Open finals, winning the event three straight years from 1985 to 1987, and compiled an amazing 144 tournament wins. Joining Lendl, Wilander and Cash in the ATP Champions event will be 1986 French Open finalist Michael Pernfors of Vero Beach, Boca Raton's Aaron Krickstein, the youngest ever ATP Top 10 player at age 17, and Jimmy Arias, No. 6 in the world as a 19year old in 1983. Wilander, Cash and Krickstein have played in the ATP Champions Tour event since its inception in 2009 and Pernfors and Arias played last February. Roddick has played in four Delray Beach ITC ATP World Tour events and last played in 2003. He was the top seed in last year's draw, but a bout with the flu put on hold his return to the tournament where he played his first Roddick and Lendl to star in 2012 Delray Beach ITC professional match. The tournament is kicking off its third annual "US Open Ticket Promotion," offering discounts on Delray Beach ITC tickets for the 18session, 10-day event. Running through Sept. 11 at midnight, a 10 percent discount will be offered on all individual box seats ($70 $90 regular price) and Reserved Series packages ($220 $540 reg ular price), while individual reserved seats ($40 $60 regular price) will be discounted 15 percent.

The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By: Chris NelsonThe Miami Dolphins have to make two roster moves to get down to 80 players by Tuesday's deadline, but that didn't stop them from making a roster addition with Sunday's signing of veteran safety Gerald Alexander. The news was actually broken by Alexander himself, who tweeted the news Sunday afternoon. NFL.com and other media outlets have since reported the signing. In addition, the Dolphins have waived/injured inside linebacker Mike Rivera. If he passes through waivers, he will revert to the team's injured reserve list, with an outright release with an injury settlement to follow. With the swap, the Dolphins' roster remains at 82 players. NFL teams must get down to 80 players on the active roster by Tuesday afternoon. Background: After redshirting at Boise State in 2002, Alexander played three seasons at cornerback before moving to safety as a senior in 2006. He earned All-WAC honors all four seasons, finishing his collegiate career with 161 tackles, nine interceptions, and 33 pass deflections in 51 games (38 starts). Selected in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions, Alexander opened all 16 games at free safety as a rookie and recorded 82 tackles, two sacks, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions, and seven pass deflections. Alexander was relegated to a backup role behind Daniel Bullocks in 2008, appearing in five games (one start) and recording seven tackles before suffering a fractured vertebrae in his neck and landing on injured reserve. After the Lions traded Alexander to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for wide receiver Dennis Northcutt in June 2009, he played a significant role on defense with 15 games played (10 starts) at strong safety. He totaled 55 tackles, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions. The Jaguars released Alexander during final cuts in 2010, but he was re-signed in late September due to injury. He started three games and recorded 16 tackles and three pass deflec tions before being released again on Oct. 19. The Carolina Panthers signed him to a contract in late November, but he did not record any tackles in two games with the team. According to Alexander's twitter account, he will be learning both safety positions with the Dolphins (he's started at both spots in the NFL already) and will wear No. 40.Dolphins sign safety Gerald Alexander, waive linebacker Mike Rivera Boca Raton, FL The Florida Atlantic University women's soccer team returns after a one-week break to put its undefeated 2-0 record on the line in two home matches this weekend. The Owls will battle Mercer University on Friday, September 2, at 7 p.m. before facing the University of MissouriKansas City on Sunday, September 4, at noon. Both matches will be played at the FAU Soccer Stadium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Ra ton campus. FAU is off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2005 after victories over Lynn University on August 19 and Stetson University on August 21. The team has allowed just one goal over the course of the two matches. However, not wanting to rest on the squad's laurels, FAU Women's Soccer Coach Brian Dooley spent the early-season break working to correct imperfec tions in the offense and defense. Improving the players' physical conditions was also an emphasis, as was getting the team ready for the remainder of the fall season. "It is nice to start the season with two wins. However, there is room for improvement, and our players know that there was a slim margin in our past victories. We have to play better, starting this weekend," said Dooley. "It took us a while to get two wins last year and the pressure we put on ourselves wore on us. So, it is good to get off to strong start this season." Sophomore forward Jesse Shugg leads the FAU offensive attack with two goals and seven shots. The Burlington, Ontario, Canada native has found the back of the net in the first half of each match this season. Fellow sophomore Brittney Nash also has been actively involved in the offense with a goal and two assists. She has contributed to both gamewinning goals in the earlyseason matches. Meanwhile, redshirt junior midfielder Meghan Brown also has recorded two assists and junior forwardAllison Griffin had the game-winning goal in the Owls' 2-1 victory over Lynn. Junior goalkeeper Ashley Lantes recorded her fifth career shutout in the 2-0 victory over Stetson. Redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Courtney Zwetsch also contributed a scoreless second half in the triumph over Lynn. Friday night's match will showcase two undefeated teams. Mercer stands 3-0 on the season and has yet to allow a goal in victories over Jacksonville State University, Georgia Southern University and Georgia State University. The Bears are members of the Atlantic Sun Conference, which once featured FAU. The Owls are 1-0 against Atlantic Sun teams after defeating Stetson. "Mercer will offer our stiffest match yet this sea son," said Dooley. "They have three impressive wins so far. They are a team that likes to keep possession and develop scoring opportunities from those possessions. We have not played Mercer since we moved to the Sun Belt Conference." Sunday's opponent, UMKC, will be the first meeting between the two NCAA Division I teams. The Kangaroos enter the weekend with a 0-1-2 record and have scored one goal by Taylor Bare. "The new coach has added a lot of enthusiasm to the UMKC program," said Dooley. "Since this is our first meeting we don't know a lot of what they like to do. They have played better than their record, and will be a dangerous opponent after coming off a challenging Friday night match.
