This past Friday night, at The Funky Biscuit (formerly named Club 303) in Royal Palm Place, the venue was jam-packed with people who had been waiting months to see the one and only Jackiem Joyner, many of whom had come from cities all across Florida. He and the band played two sets, for well over 2 hours of great jazz, and the response from the crowd was overwhelming. Quotes from attendees included: THANKS Royal Palm for these awesome jazz shows.....LOVE!, What a fabulous concert! He put on an awesome show, Jackiem Joyner put on a great show tonight..., Last night was GREAT, can't wait to see who will be coming in the future; what a fantastic night out!!! Thanks!, Thanks again Jacqui for outdoing yourself! I had such a wonderful evening last night! Really looking forward to the beginning of a fabulous 2011-2012 Royal Palm Place Jazz Series! Thanks to everyone that help to make these events possible, This show was HOT, My husband and I are huge smooth jazz fans. We went to the Funky Biscuit last Friday night to see Jackiem Joyner and brought two friends with us. None of us had been there before. We had a blast!!!! The food was very good, and we loved the show. Thanks! Were looking forward to the next smooth jazz event So what makes Jackiem Joyner so special? He tells a story without words, with an instrumental voice that includes a tenor sax in addition to his trademark alto and soprano horns that are deeply rooted in the rich soil of soulful expression and raw emotion. Listening to him Friday night was an amazing experience. This performer can make his sax wail, growl, and everything in between. Friday night included selections from all three of his CDs, and they were all hits with the crowd. His self-titled album, Jackiem Joyner, arrived hot on the heels of his 2008 sophomore release, Lil Man Soul, which generated two #1 singles. Topping the smooth jazz radio charts for an incredible 12 weeks, Im Waiting For You was the longest-running #1 single in 2009 and was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2010 American Smooth Jazz Awards. In 2010 the albums Take Me There climbed to the summit position and set up camp. Babysoul, Joyners first album, debuted at #15 on the Billboard chart in 2007 led by the single Stay With Me Tonight, a duet with iconic smooth jazz guitarist Peter White. Smooth Jazz News actually named Joyner the Debut Artist of the Year. Around the time Jackiem launched his solo ca reer, he became a featured musician in keyboardist Keiko Matsuis touring band and continues to tour internationally with her, for whom he plays sax and The Royal Palm Place Jazz Series, which kicked o last November, continues to bring electrifying mega-talented musicians from around the country to Boca Raton. flute. Along with Matsui, in recent years Jackiem has performed onstage with Peter White, Gerald Albright, Joe Sample and the late Wayman Tisdale. As an artist, he is maturing and has the confidence to take risks, pushing the envelope creatively. Versatile and blessed with an intuitive gift, Joyner is a definitely a star that has yet to reach its zenith. The jazz series was created by Jacqui Wyatt, Director of Marketing for Investments Limited and co-host of the popular radio show The Talk of The Town, which took the #1 spot in Boca Raton Maga zines Ultimate It List The Boca 100 this year. Helping her bring it all together has been none other than Steve Butler, CEO of Mighty Music Corp. in New York, who is responsible for the fabulous talent lineup. So what do we all have to look forward to as the series begins its second year? Next up is the Season Preview Show on Friday, October 28th with Urban Gypsy...November 19th we have Doin' the D with Alexander Zonjic and special guest Jeff Lorber. As far as the rest of the lineup for the season is concerned, well all just have to stay tuned as we hear Jacqui, Steve and The Funky Biscuit have some major surprises in store for us.

Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in the parking garage of 1515 South Federal Highway. A police report said the victim told officers he was emptying trash into the dumpster in a room on the first level of the parking garage. A male approached him, pointed a silver handgun at him and demanded his jewelry. The victim gave the suspect his gold ring and gold necklace. The suspect fled on foot in a southwest direction, police said. The victim was not injured. The robber was said to be black male in his early to mid 20s, about 6 feet tall, thin, with short hair. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Detective Chris Suarez at (561) 620-6146 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.Man robbed of his jewelry in Boca RatonGovernor Rick Scott has issued a proclamation honoring Floridas 24 regional Workforce Alliance job-locating organizations by declaring September as Workforce Development Month. The proclamation ac knowledges the valuable services provided by the regional workforce orga nizations to employers and job seekers statewide. In Palm Beach County, where Workforce Alliance Career Centers are located in Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Belle Glade, the agency placed 12,771 people in jobs in its most recent program year (July 2010 to June 2011) a 19 percent increase over the previous year. In fact, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranks Florida No. 1 in the nation for its workforce and training programs in its most recent annual evaluation. During the past two years, economic conditions in Florida and Palm Beach County have been among the hardest-hit in the na tion, with unemployment rates ranging from 1 percent to 3 percent higher than the national average. Workforce Alliance has been instrumental in helping record numbers of area job seekers enter or reenter the workforce, said Steve Craig, the agencys interim chief executive officer. Workforce Alliance also provides services to employers, including recruitment, assessments and referrals of qualified job candidates, grants for training new or existing employees, and outplacement assistance. During Workforce Development Month, Workforce Alliance Ca reer Centers are offering more than 100 classes and workshops on topics such as basic computer skills, how to search online for jobs, resume writing and effective job interviewing techniques.Workforce Alliance cited for record number of job placements Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON Local police are searching for the suspect who tore a gold necklace from a man as he was walking near the Florence Fuller Child Development Center at 200 NE 14th St. about 8:10 a.m. Sept. 14.

The proposal covers sections of the road within the city limits and in county territory. But the county cannot complete its widening work unless the city agrees to do the same on its section. Boca and Palm Beach County officials met Thursday to start hammering out an agreement on the controversial widening of Palmetto Park Road, but could reach no agreement. The mediation meeting Sept. 15 was requested by the City of Boca Raton. County Commissioner Steven L. Abrams, who represents Boca Raton and its environs, said he is still opposed to the plan that would widen the road through residential neighborhoods and community parks, particularly when the traffic engineers advise that the road will still remain at a deficient level of service. County Engineer George Webb told the Boca Raton City Council months ago that Palmetto Park Road would still be rated as F even after the work is done. As the meeting came to a conclusion, county commissioners said they need more information about the traffic impacts of abandoning the project. They also want input from residents west of Florida's Turnpike, said Commission Chairwoman Karen Marcus. "I want to make sure that I've considered all the options that are in the area, and I don't think we have the information here today," Marcus said. "I don't want to be back here in 10 or five or eight years saying, 'Oh, we've got to make this intersection improvement.' The project would widen Palmetto Park Road by one lane in each direc tion from west of Interstate 95 to west of St. Andrews Boulevard. Residents along the road have strongly objected to it, and the Boca Raton City Council adopted a resolution earlier this year asking the county to kill the plan. The widening would affect the intersection of Palmetto Park Road and Military Trail intersec -Boca, PB County remain at odds over Palmetto Park Road project Boca Raton and Palm Beach County officials meet to discuss the fate of the Palmetto Park Road widening project.tion, but it would decrease traffic wait times there by about 30 seconds during rush hours, said Webb. But he added that the level of service at the intersection would remain an F.

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor Saturday will be a very special day for a very special woman in Boca Raton. Thats when Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, will mark her 99th birthday Whether we realize it or not, we all have something to thank her for. If we have ever visited the Boca Raton Museum of Art or the Mizner Park Amphitheater; if we have ever gotten help from the American Red Cross, Boca Raton chapter; if we have ever attended classes at Florida Atlantic University, Lynn University or Palm Beach State College, then we have been helped by her tremendous largesse. Either she alone or with her husband, the late Count Adolph de Hoernle, has given uncountable millions of dollars to those and many, many other organizations. If you were present this past Monday at the Peter Blum Family YMCA here in Boca, you would have seen the many sides of the Countess. The pre-school kids there honored her for donations to the Y which resulted in the creation of the pre-school and also with the youth development center. The Countess posed for pictures of the children as they presented her with gifts they crafted with their own hands. The Countess smiled with much joy, exhibiting her obvious love of children. He is the quintessence of humility. Then, everyone headed to a small conference room for cake. Joining the crowd was Flossy Keesely, another Boca benefactor and friend of the countess. Amid flashing camera strobes, the Countess greeted the kids, hugged them and whispered words in their ears. This YMCA has been privileged to have this relationship with the Countess, said CEO Richard Pollack. She has been active as a board member and a volunteer. If you dont believe the Countess is a handson person, think again. She employs no ac countants or number crunchers. She spends her nights poring over requests for donations until early morning. She alone decides who receives what, and how much. As she has wisely said many times, Give while you live so youll know where it goes. My wife and I feel very, very lucky to have become friends with the Countess. We have been graced with the opportunity to meet with her at her home in St. Andrews South. She is a gracious lady who has many wonderful stories to tell many of which transcend the dollars she has given over the years. The year 2011 is sig nificant to the Countess in several ways. Not only is she marking her 99th birthday, but 2011 is also the 30th anniversary of the arrival of the Count and Countess de Hoernle in Boca Raton. There are so many stories about this wonderful and loving couple who made Boca Raton and the surrounding area the recipients of their generosity. One of the first dona tions the couple made well, actually she made it to her husband was to purchase the old Florida East Coast Railroad Sta tion as a birthday present to him, thus saving a historic building and allowing the Boca Raton Historical Society to turn it into a community facility as well as a learning site. I remember covering the grand opening of the Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle Building in West Palm Beach, the location of Childrens Home Society. She and her husband also endowed a building at the Palm Beach State College campus in Lake Worth. So, their financial assistance sometimes went beyond the Boca borders. But she loves Boca, her newfound home town. The Countess was born in Germany, but came to the United States in her youth. She was fascinated by rooms in hospitals where plaques listed the name of donors. She wanted very much to see her name on one of her plaques. And she did that, first in New York, and since then, in many places around South Florida. She is truly one of a kind. As Flossy said at the birthday event at the Y, I believe no other community has as much coopera tion as the Countess has given to Boca Raton.At age 99, Countess de Hoernle still makes her presence known in Boca RatonTo the Editor: I just wanted to remind you that the Greater Boca Ra ton Chamber of Commerce Young Entrepreneurs Academy, YEA! in partnership with the Adams Center for Entrepreneurship on the FAU Campus is ready to accept applications for students who have demonstrated creativity, academic effort, enthusiasm, and ability to communicate and a commitment to their community.

When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. Love must be cultivated on a one by one basis, with respect to individuals a person chooses to impact. It seeks to address specific deficits in another life, attempting to meet a particular necessity an individual may call for. It is to be treated like a tender plant requiring careful, continual nourishment at regular intervals, so it may grow. Love originates within a person, and it bears some characteristics of the provider. It is something which may be learned at first, but after a while it becomes a natural disposition, flowing freely from its giver. A wise commentator indicated that loving everybody in general may be an excuse for loving nobody in particular. Someone else illustrated that idea in verse form: To love the world /For me is no chore /My only problem /Is the man next door! In his best-selling volume, Tuesdays With Morrie, author Mitch Albom quotes Morrie remarking that the most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. And the late Norman Vincent Peale confirmed it when he wrote that loving and being loved are opposite sides of the same coin. Legitimate love can be the experience of secure, sincere, stable individuals only in both giving and receiving it. True love is not self-seeking; it is voluntarily and freely offered to whomever is sought as its object. Love may be conveyed in words, manifested through physical gestures, or expressed in other legitimate ways. Yet, it is exemplified most powerfully through giving, especially in the giving of ones self! Ones physical presence supersedes other presents! Because love is such an important ingredient for healthy and joyous living in the world, every person should carefully seek genuine, human objects of love, while remaining always open to be loved by others also. Loves supply is never depleted when love is given away! Theres much truth to the popular song that declares, tis love that makes the world go round! But only real love can accomplish that! Avoid all unworthy substitutes, and the manifold caricatures of it, which can never achieve what authentic love alone can do! There is power in love, and true love never loses its power!True Love Never Loses Its Power!When I first moved to Boca Raton from Bra zil 12 years ago, one of the first people I became aware of was Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle. I saw her everywhere, and even more frequently, I saw her name or that of her late husband, Count Adolph de Hoernle, on buildings all over the city. I thought maybe she and her husband were the founders of Boca Raton. I was even thinking that maybe they and Addison Mizner had made Boca Raton what it is. And since Google hadnt been created yet, I couldnt determine by computer who she was! Well, I got a pleasant surprise. Addison Mizner was the architect who made the city look the way it does. But the de Hoernles contributed to the citys growth with money that came from the heart. It took a while for me to catch up with the Countess. She is so active, even as she approaches 99 years of age. Last year, with a great deal of pride and humility, my wife and I met the Countess at the March of Dimes Signature Chefs event at the Boca Ra ton Resort & Club. Even though she was the guest of honor and recipient of an award for public service, she talked to me like we had known each other for years. But the Countess is like this with everyone. She makes you feel right at home. She is sharp and listens intently. It was a great pleasure to meet the Countess, and she will always have a close place in our hearts. What also pleased me that night and even today is the support the Countess has given to the Tribune. She has emphatically pointed out the need for a local paper in Boca Raton. Not only that, she signed up for mail subscription No. 1 of the Boca Raton. That really is a show of support. I realize today how much the de Hoernles have done for Boca Raton. I have come to understand her love of children and desire to make certain they all receive a proper education. Just the other day, she was greeting children at the YMCA. Last year, the kids and staff from the Boca Raton Childrens Museum honored her on her 98th birthday with a tea in the front yard of the building. She was just as gra cious on that hot summer day in 2010 as she always has been. Countess, we wish you the very best as we approach your 99th birthday Saturday. We also thank another close friend of yours, Yaacov Heller, owner of Gallery 22, for setting up a dedication ceremony for the statues he created of you and your late husband which stand at the edge of the stage at the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater in Mizner Park as well as a birthday celebration. We hope everyone will be there at 3 p.m. on Saturday to bring greetings and wonderful wishes to a wonderful lady. Countess, I promise you that when the Boca Tribune creates a news media center, we will name it in your honor.Countess de Hoernle has transformed from icon to friend and Tribune supporter TheBocaRatonTribune.com Read...

Boca Police Safety TipBoca Raton Police BlotterQ: A wallet was stolen from my co-workers purse last week but no one knows how anyone stole it. What can be done to prevent this type of crime? A: The simplest way of preventing this type of theft is to keep your purse or wallet in a locked desk, cabinet or office. In some cases, criminals use distraction techniques to access offices and restricted areas to commit these thefts. Ensure special attention is focused on these areas. Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more informa tion, visit www.BocaPolice.com. BOCA RATON A jury on Sept. 15 found James Franklin Clark guilty of DUI manslaughter. He faces a sentence of up to 15 years in prison. Clark, 39, of Boca Ra ton, will be sentenced Oct. 21, police said. According to reports, the crash occurred on Friday, October 3, 2006, at about 9:20 p.m. The vic tim, Lucy Miller, 85, had just left services at Congregation BNai Israel, 2200 West Yamato Road. Police said Miller was attempting to make a uturn from eastbound Yamato Road to westbound Yamato Road. According to witnesses, Miller was moving slowly as she made the turn. Clark was driving westbound in an Infiniti SUV and struck Millers Toyota, killing her, said police. When Boca Raton Police Traffic Homicide investigators interviewed Clark, they said they could smell alcohol on his breath. Clark admitted to having multiple drinks prior to the crash and his blood alcohol level was 0.12%, an hour after the crash, said police. After an extensive review of the evidence, Boca Raton Traffic Homicide investigators were able to determine Clark was traveling at least 70 mph (the posted speed is 45 mph) and that his speed clearly contributed to the cause of the crash.

The Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL Palm Beach County Commissioners have fired off a resolution to the state legislature asking lawmakers to reconsider their decision to adopt laws that force counties, cities and towns to repeal local regulations on guns and ammunition. Commissioners voted 6-0, with Shelly Vana absent, to ask legislators to rethink provisions that go into effect Oct. 1 which would prevent counties, cities and towns from enforc ing their own regulations. In some cases, local officials could face civil fines of up to $5,000 if they try to enforce ordinances that violate state law. Also, commissioners approved changes to various firearms ordinances involving record keeping, discharging firearms, sale of firearms in an emergency and discharging a firearm in or near a natural disaster. These ordinances were in violation of the new state law that says firearms laws can only come from the state. In other business at the Sept. 13 meeting, commissioners took the following action: Airport Parking Discount Created a discount program providing for a passenger to receive up to a $20 discount on parking fees if they fly on a predesignated promotional flight that includes either new non-stop markets or group travel. The flight must serve a market not currently served on a nonstop basis. Ethics Commission Accepted a Memorandum of Understanding from the Boca Raton Airport Authority to engage the services of the Commission on Ethics and its executive director. This ac tion addresses the Airport Authoritys desire to subject itself to the countys ethics regulations. Animal Care and Control Advisory Board Voted to dissolve the advisory board as staff recommended. Staff will continue to work with local animal organizations, citizens and professionals in the field of animal welfare. The division will continue to accept citizen input and volunteer support on all issues relating to improving animal welfare. Ocean Avenue Bridge Approved funding for the construction of a new Ocean Avenue bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in the Town of Lantana. The project also includes a fishing pier under the west end paid for with Parks and Recreation bond funds. Ranchettes MSTU Project Voted to open the municipal services taxing unit (MSTU) program for the Fargo Avenue and El Paso Drive/ Pancho Way/Pinto Drive (east end only) road improvement projects. Commissioners authorized modification of the MSTU ordinance to allow a percentage up to 100 percent of project costs to be assessed for these two projects. The board directed staff to immediately proceed to hire a consultant to design the projects and provide the most cost effective paved surface for these roads, which may or may not involve installing drainage to meet current county standards. Commissioners want state to reconsider laws forcing repeal of local gun, ammo rules

But then thats what my life is all about. By Dale M. King and Julia M. Hebert BOCA RATON Boca philanthropist Henrietta Countess de Hoernle, remembers with great fondness and a radiant smile the day a royal lady came into her life and made her feel like Cinderella. The Countess said it was the day she met a Queen with a heart, Queen Silvia of Sweden. Actually, Queen Silvia went out of her way to find the Countess and to sit with her during a fundraiser in Hillsboro for one of the Queens charities. They con versed and held hands for moments that will live on in the Countess memory like a magical fairy tale. I was on Cloud 9, she made me feel like Cinderella, the Countess said of the event held last April at the home of The Honorary Consul, Mr. Per-Olof Loof and his wife Mrs. sa-Lena Loof, grand benefactors of the World Childhood Foundation.

Its easy for the Countess to remember that day. The Queen gave me a picture in a silver frame which froze that wonderful moment in time. Actually, she received three photos, one, the Countess and Queen Silvia; another, the Countess and the Queens daughter, Princess Madeleine and a third with the King, Queen and Princess outside the home with other dignitaries. The 98-year-old Countess said that she arrived at the event via the beach entrance. Since she was using her three-wheel motor ized cart to get around, she could not climb the stairs to the main area where the dinner was taking place. Its a big, big place, there must be 100 steps. Consequently, I could not get to the receiving line. Also, by the time I arrived at the home, I was exhausted. Disappointed, the Countess took a seat far from the royal family. She feared she would miss seeing the Queen -for a second time. In 1980, Bocas Countess was presented to King Carl XVI Gustaf by Princess Cristina, the Kings sister. But the Queen was out of town at the time. I called for the host ess and told her, I guess I will miss the Queen again, the Countess lamented. But the host ess said, No, you wont. Ill bring the Queen to you. In a few moments, the leading royal lady of Sweden along with Princess Madeleine ap proached the Countess table. She sat and we held hands, the Countess recalls vividly. She pointed out the fact that we were born in the same area of Germany about a half century apart. They chatted about their homeland and talked about the wonderful weather in Boca Raton. I always ask people, Dont you love our weather here? She added They have a lot of cold weather in Sweden. Reflecting on her meeting with the Queen and her daughter Madeleine, the Countess said, They are beautiful, charming and kind. She noted the Queen is a beautiful woman. Everyone loves her. The Countess felt particularly touched that the Queen Countess Henrietta de Hoernle and Queen Silvia of Sweden Countess Henrietta de Hoernle and Princess Madeleine of SwedenCountess and King of Sweden 1985and Princess sat down to have pictures taken with her. After exchanging hugs, the Queen and Princess went their way and the Countess left the event and headed home, still on Cloud 9, she said. The Countess learned that the King and Queen attended a church service in Boca, and then traveled to New York the next day where the Queen was hassled by paparazzi. While trying to escape from the photographers, the Queen twisted her ankle. Although this incident saddened the Countess, she still has her memories of a wonderful day spent with a wonderful royal lady in Boca Raton.

Happy Birthday Countess! Happy Birthday Countess! ank you for your support! Wayne Barton Center Count Adolph and Countess Henrietta de Hoernle already had quite a reputation for philanthropy in March of 1986 when I was asked to write a story about their $500,000 donation to jump-start the drive to restore the 1930 Florida East Coast Railway station. I had a special interest in the station, as it was the starting point for one of my lifes greatest adventures: traveling solo to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and back at age 13. I was anticipating a domicile befitting royalty, but then as now, the de Hoernles lived quite modestly in St. Andrews Estates South retirement community. Nor did the couple have a fancy car. When the Count passed away, Henrietta, or Rita, as she is known to her friends, tooled around town in a white Toyota. I was impressed at the time at how down-toearth Count Adolph de Hoernle was. He was not from inherited wealth. Adolph de Hoernle earned his fortune the hard way: establishing and running a thriving metal stamping business in Yonkers, New York. The walls of the apartment were decorated with various titles (they have seven in addition to the Count and Countess titles) and awards. When you give away as much money as the de Hoernles have, people are grateful and want to publicly express that gratitude. After my interview I felt really good about Count and Countess de Hoernle. They didnt just randomly dispense money to all who asked and they didnt give to aggrandize themselves. The Countess calmly and rationally considered each request. Her motto was and still is: Give while you live and know where it goes. Years later we had the melancholy task of cataloging, labeling and selling many of our mothers possessions after her death and sale of her house. Who should pull up in a white Toyota but the Countess? She browsed through the stuff like any bargainseeker. I dont think she recognized me and I didnt let on I knew her. One of her friends later told me the Countess was quite fond of garage sales. Several years later I attended a classical music concert at FAU at the invitation of one of the Countess friends. I was seated right next to the Countess. I introduced myself and she said, I know who you are. I like what you write. Naturally that made me feel good, but what made me feel better was the Countess insightful remarks on the music. Henrietta is a fond patron of the arts, and she is no dilettante. She knows her business and she was sharing knowledge with me. As each year passes I am more amazed. The Countess keeps up her tireless schedule. She smiles for photos and greets people of all ages, even tiny children as she did Monday at the YMCA Boca Raton. She is the closest thing to royalty Boca Raton will ever have. Long live the Countess de Hoernle. The de Hoernles brought a reputation for philanthropy to Boca Raton Countress ButtonCount and Countress de Hoernle with then-Boca Mayor William Konrad

It was a thick gold ring, and her finger was in pain, Heller told the Boca Raton Tribune. Instead of going to the emergency room, she came to my shop. Heller said he took a jewelry saw, carefully cut the ring, then repaired it and gave it back to her. It took about an hour. Since then, the artist and the community benefactor have been friends. Last year, Heller helped celebrate the Countess 98th birthday by creating a bust of her and her late husband, Adolph, which is now on display on the second floor of the replica of the Rickards House at the Boca Raton Childrens Museum. To mark her 99th birthday Saturday, Heller is sponsoring a dedication ceremony for the bronze statues of the Count and Countess he created. They were recently moved from the sculpture garden outside his shop, Gallery 22, in Royal Palm Place, to a permanent location near the stage of the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater in Mizner Park. The event will be held Saturday at 3 p.m., and the community is invited. In addition to the dedica tion, there will be entertainment from America Idol season 10 finalist Brett Loewenstern, Future Stars winners Vanessa Simpson and Kendra Fulmer and the Countess de Hoernle Singers, among others. Mayor Susan Whelchel is also scheduled to be on hand. Heller said he has engraved in the status base the Countess famous motto, Give while you live, know where it goes. The Boca artist said he originally met the Countess 10 years ago while he was creating the statue of another Boca benefactor, Flossy Keesely, which now stands at the entrance to the amphitheater. Flossy brought the Countess to the unveiling of Flossys combina tion fountain and statue. The Countess was impressed by the statue as well as Hellers jewelry handiwork. She soon brought the local artist jewelry that belonged to her late husband. She asked Heller to create a necklace for her made of the many precious jewels her husband had accumulated.Famed Boca artists shares close bond with CountessThe Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL She said she didnt trust anyone other than me with the jewelry, Heller said. Heller said he and his wife, Sue, a teacher of the arts, admire the Countess desire to promote this genre. He said the Countess supports their efforts to keep arts in the schools and community. The Countess showed her friendship when the Hellers moved from Highland Beach to Boca Pointe. Knowing their kitchen was not ready to use, Heller said she made them meals every night. With this friendship comes mutual respect. I call her the Countess, said Heller. Some other friends call her Rita, but I want to give her the respect she deserves. It works both ways. The Countess wears many of Hellers jewelry creations. He said they are lighter than some of her other accessories and are more comfortable. Heller even jokes about the Countess wearing his creations while she is playing bridge, by far her favorite game. All in all, Heller said, he, his wife and family feel like a family.

According to TransMedia Groups founder and CEO Tom Madden, Jia will divide her time between China and the U.S. promoting trade and commerce between U.S. and China. Contrary to Trump, instead of a trade war with China, we see infinitely more benefits flowing from a deeper friendship between our two countries, said Madden. To paraphrase a mascot tuna, Sorry, Donald, but China is not looking for pundits with good taste, but partners for good trade. Jia Jie was born in Tianjin, China where she graduated from Tianjin University with a bachelor's degree in business management and MBA. In 1993 she earned a Master's degree in computer engineering from FAU. In China she was direc tor of sales and marketing at Vanke, the largest real estate developer in China.

Columnists The Boca Raton TribuneBy Mike Gora Who Gets the Money? Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. Learning to ask questions and knowing the right questions to ask are two of the most important skills you must develop if you want to succeed in life, whether in the workplace, your home, or in any other personal pursuits: tions, you cannot make distinctions. distinctions, you cannot make decisions. decision, you cannot take action. will fail! Contrary to popular opinion, asking questions is a sign of intelligence. The higher your intelligence, the more likely you are to probe, ponder, and question. You are always seeking to learn, to understand, to grow. There are no stupid questions. What is stupid is not asking for clarification when you know that you do not understand something. When you allow concern about yourimage (I must appear to know it all) to take priority over your learning that is stupid! Will Rogers, a humorist and commentator on life, once said, Everybody is ignorantjust on different subjects! Likewise, because we have all had different experiences, we each can learn from anyone if we are wise enough to ask the right questions. The Bible says this: Though good advice lies deep within a counselors heart, the wise man will draw it out (Proverbs 20:5). The way you draw wisdom out of others is by asking questions. There are many kinds of questions. Here is just a sampling of types of questions we can ask: questions: What could happen if? Is there a better way? What is the real issue here? tions: What are the facts? What do we need to know? questions: What are five ways we might overcome this? tions: What is most important? What is wrong with this idea? What are we going to do now? All great teachers understand that asking questions is one of the most effective teaching tools. If you are a supervisor, manager, salesman, or parent, try this approach: Rather than telling the people you are seeking to lead what you think they should do, engage their minds by asking them questions. Provoke their thinking, and seek to guide them to the actions you think they should take. If you really want to become expert at doing this, get a Bible and read through the first four books of the New Testament (the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). As you read, underline every question Jesus asked. No one has ever been more effective than He was at using questions to train, lead, teach, inspire, and encourage. If you want to learn how to do something well, learn from the best! Until next week! 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved. Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed pur pose to guide everyday life. It has been named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th Century. He also has written The Purpose-Driven Church.There Are No Stupid Questions!Q My wife and I are in the middle of a divorce. One of the issues we are arguing over is the distribution of a large sum of money that will probably be coming to me as the result of a pending personal injury case. Three years ago, stopped at a light, I was rear ended by a guy driving a truck. I was making a delivery for my employer at the time of the accident. I was injured, had several operations, and need more. I have a disability my orthopedist calls 50 percent. I have not been able to work, but I may be able to. I brought cases against my employer under the workers compensation law and the driver of the truck and its owner. I have a top-notch personal injury lawyer who says I will probably be awarded several million dollars in damages because of my age, 35. My divorce lawyer says that most of the money from both cases will be mine. My wife tells me that she does not care what the law is, she wants half or she will do something to hurt my cases. What is the law on the treatment of future personal injury awards in divorce cases? A In the workers compensation case, you can receive money to reimburse you for medical expenses for past lost wages and for future lost wages. In the case against the driver and owner of the truck, you can collect lost wages, future wages, and medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Your wife can collect for consortium, meaning her damaged relationship with you. Under the case law, portions of the damages will be marital, and portions not marital. Reimbursement for money spent for past medical treatment, or past wag es will be considered marital, and would be divided like any other marital property. Receipt of money for lost future wages will not be considered marital, but will be considered in determining future responsibility for alimony or child support claims. The largest part of any award will be for pain and suffering in your case against the driver and the owner. That is not marital property, and will not be subject to distribution to your wife. A reasonable investment return on that money can be considered in determination of your alimony and child support obligations, but not before the actual amount is known. It is unlikely that there will be much awarded for your lost relationship with your wife during a divorce case unless she can prove that the divorce resulted from the accident. Whatever is received would be marital. Your wifes threat to harm your case if you do not split it all with her is blackmail. Her testimony regarding your current physical capabilities and psychological situation can be shaded in such a way as to affect your suc cess in the litigation. Your lawyer in the personal injury case has a problem, as he now has two clients at odds, a conflict of interest. He also has an obligation to you to make sure that any settlement must carefully break down the award by the categories mentioned above, or it might all be marital. You, your wife, and the lawyers will probably do better if you and your wife cooperate with each other, and the lawyers cooperate with one another. If you do not, the personal injury defense lawyers will use your animosity to reduce your award or defeat your cases.By Rick Warren

A free kick goal by Harald Gracholski was all Lynn Universitys defense needed to post its third shutout of the season in a 1-0 victory over Florida Tech. Gra cholski logs his third gamewinner of the year in helping the Fighting Knights to their fourth consecutive win and first in Sunshine State Conference play. It was a game of high pressure from Florida Tech (4-2-0, 0-1-0 SSC) right from the opening whistle. The Panthers were intent on allowing the Blue & White (4-1-0, 1-0-0 SSC) as little room to move as possible. That strategy worked until late in the opening half as LU countered on a failed FIT pass. Lynns offensive attack made its way into Panthers territory and a foul at the top of the box would set up LU for the winning goal. With Martin Wehlert and Gracholski standing over the ball in the 38th minute, Gracholski bent his shot around the four-man wall and inside the right post for his fourth goal of the year. The Knights defensive unit of Jason Sangha, A.B. Magnusson, Michael Kutscher and James Aldred and goalkeeper Matt DiCerbodid the rest, stopping Florida Tech at every turn. Lynn held the Panthers to one shot attempt in the first half and six total, with only two making its way on goal. Brentton Muhammad turned away four shots for FIT.Lynn Knights Soccer records another Clean Sheet The Fort Lauderdale Strikers (9-11-7, 38 points) played to a 1-1 draw against the Atlanta Silverbacks (44-19, 16 points) tonight at Lockhart Sta dium. Atlantas Nico Colaluca and Strikers forward Brian Shriver scored in the final minutes to give the 4,688 in attendance a dra matic finish. We probably we shouldve been up three or four, said head coach Da ryl Shore, but thats the way this game is. Give our guys credit. We give up a goal, and we got one back. Colaluca opened the scoring in the 90th minute after he received a pass and put a touch onto his right foot. Just outside the 18-yard-box, he curled a shot which ricocheted off the far post and in for his first of the season. Immediately following the goal, the Strikers Eduardo Coudet sent a long pass to a streaking Yoximar Granado. With a short touch, Granado crossed it into the box and Shriver was there to put it home for his sixth of the season, tying Coudet for the team lead. In the first half, the Strikers were the more attacking team, pressing high up the pitch. Martin Nunez was through in the 28th minute alone on goal after a long ball from the defense. He rounded the keeper, but he hit the shot wide and left. Colaluca proved to be the Silverbacks playmaker, as he was taking his chanc es. In the 41st minute, he hit a right-footed shot aiming for the far post, but goalkeeper Matt Glaeser was there to make the save. Following the first half, the Silverbacks came out pushing forward. Grant Kerr, on loan from the Strikers, took a shot from 18 yards out to Glaesers left, but the Strikers goalkeeper dove and stopped it. Atlanta almost put themselves ahead in the 71st minute. After a free kick was curled into the box, three different shots were stopped by Glaeser, deflected off the post and blocked from point blank range. We persevered and we got a goal back. It is a positive you can take into the playoffs, because it shows were determined and were not going to quit, said Shore. With this draw and the Montreal Impact beating FC Edmonton, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers will be hosting their first playoff game on Saturday, Oct. 1. The Strikers next travel to face FC Tampa Bay on Sept. 24 at 7:00p.m. at Al Lang Stadium.Strikers Salvage Last Minute Draw With Atlanta r f n t b b r f ntb t t t r n nt t r rfffntbf fffrr f trtt ttrn
