The annual event will be held Sunday, December 11at the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach. The guest speaker, J. Scott Carpenter, brings many years of experience as a Middle East expert to his topic of Israel: An Asset at a Time of Revolutionary Change in the Mid-East. Carpenter is principal at Google Ideas, Googles new think/do tank, where he focuses on bringing technology to bear on countering violent extremism and consolidating democracy in the Arab world. He is also an adjunct scholar at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy. As the Institute's Keston Family fellow from 2007-2011, Scott was the founding director of Project Fikra, which focuses on empowering Arab democrats in their struggle against authoritarianism and extremism. From 2004-2007, Scott served as deputy assistant secretary of state in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, overseeing the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). In 2006, he was also named coordinator for the State Department's Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives. Scott has an M.S. in economics and European studies from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies, is married and has two sons. The Israel Cancer Association continues to lead the way in groundbreaking cancer research by Israels extraordinary scientists. But because ICA receives no government funding, it must rely on private donations to support the fellowships presented to these brilliant scientists.

Scott Carpenter will speak at the 2011 Membership Brunch of Israel Cancer Association USA Quantum house hosts South Florida Base Inaugural Kap(SS) 4 Kid(SS) VisitationOn Friday, July 29th members of the South Florida Base were most graciously welcomed by Jessica Reeves, Outreach Coordinator of the Quantum House, for the inaugural visit of their Kap(SS) 4 Kid(SS) program. Quantum House is located in West Palm Beach, Florida on the grounds of St. Marys Medical Center (non-affiliated) and performs functions similar to that of the Ronald Mc Donald House. The South Florida Base members participating in the activities were Bill Andrea, Mavae Andrea, Larry Harjehausen, George Hoyt, Steve Laine and Keith Reynolds. Our meeting with the eleven children present (ranging in ages from 50 to 10 years old) was friendly and rewarding. The young folks, their parents and grandparents were very curious as to our views and lives aboard submarines. During the nearly two hours spent with the youngsters, each child was made an Honorary Submariner and was presented with a signed Honorary Submariner Certificate. Additionally, they were presented with a special Kap of their choosing. Four youngsters who were unable to participate in our program because of medical procedures they needed that day were certainly missed. Certificates and Kaps were left for the m (with the Coordinator Jessica) along with our hopes and good wishes. Three events occurred during the gathering that was quite impressive. One young many who was confined to a wheelchair appeared to be withdrawn and sullen. We learned through Quantum House personnel that this was his general over all mood since his arrival. Larry took him aside and they spend some time talking. Soon we noticed the young many was smiling and yes, even laughing. What ever Larry did or said remains unknown but to see the outcome brought joy to all of us. Another notable instance was when George Hoyt was asked by on the children how he got his nickname (Pumpkin Pie). The answer brought the house down. The third event oc curred early-on. When entering the room, a youngster about 9 years of age, came in humming the song Yellow Submarine. Keith hurried to his magic bag and pulled-out the Beatles rendition and placed it in the CD Rom. She heard the tune playing, her eyes beamed with delight and instantly we had another happy honorary submariner. Soon our inaugural visit ended. We were thanked by the staff and the parents. One staff mem ber expressed the thought that the therapy the children received by this visit was visible and appreciated. Although I didnt reply to her remark, I thought, Who really received the therapy??

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor TheBocaRatonTribune.com Read... Oh, the weather outside is frightful. Yeah, frightfully hot and humid. Ive noticed that weather like this seems to impact everyone except marketing people. It may be 90 degrees outside, but someone with marketing savvy is thinking its time to carve your Jack OLantern, cook your Thanksgiving turkey, whip up some Hanukkah goodies, trim your Christmas tree and make plans for New Years Eve. Yes, if you havent noticed by now, the stores are already filled with holiday merchandise from dollar outlets to the big department stores. Its barely October, but you can find everything from fake pumpkins to jingle bells at your neighborhood shops. It seems that retailers, aware of the weak dollar, high unemployment rate and general malaise about running up big tallies on credit cards, has hit potential shoppers with holiday ideas when they least expect it, hoping to cash in before the shoppers run out of cash. This seems to be a trend that began at least a decade ago or more. Someone looking to move a large inventory of holiday paraphernalia was sitting around saying, Why do I have to wait until the end of November to unload this stuff? Why dont I just put it on the shelves aroundoh, maybe July? Each year, this holiday infiltration begins with a trickle during the dog days of summer. When the sale of hot weather items begins to wind down, things like plastic haunted house signs, witches-on-broomsticks-patterned pillows, orange and black toys and things like that begin to show up. I remember seeing a stuffed witch toy in a store about a month ago. And that was weird, I thought, since it was a dog toy. As far as I know and I will check with him on this my dog has no awareness of holidays. Well, it didnt end there. By Labor Day, even big stores like Costco had holiday displays galore. Just this past weekend, my wife and I went to the local Costco and saw lighted trees, decorative snowmen and other holiday finery. It reminded me of someone I recently heard on the radio who admitted that he went to Costco to get something totally unrelated to the holidays. He said he was so enamored with the festive decorations that he ended up buying two boxes of holiday cards. I imagine thats what the store owners want us to do. Start shopping now dont wait. Whatever youre looking for may not be here tomorrow. Even the dollar stores are catering to the upcoming holidays. You walk in, only to wade through the plastic pumpkins and witch silhouettes before you reach the red stockings and the $1-a-box Christmas cards. Of course, stores are also selling Hanukkah items and I think I saw New Years cards in at least one store. By now, you probably expect me to blame this on living in Florida, then tell you how much better it was in New England which has something unknown in the Sunshine State seasons. No, the early appearance of holiday items is a national trend that has brought us other shop-shop-shop enticements like Black Friday, 24-hour holiday shopping and people waiting in long lines to get into Wal-Mart or Target at 2 a.m. (Actually, somewhere in the back of my mind is a memory of going into Kmart on Thanksgiving Day and it was open. And that goes back to the days when I lived up north.) Dont get me wrong, Im not complaining about the early appearance of holiday items in stores. It actually helps me to get into the sea sonal mood. And apparently, this is proliferating. There is, for example, at least one person who lives in this same development who already has a plastic pumpkin on his lawn that says Happy Halloween. I guess I wont really get into the spirit until radio stations begin playing Christmas carols 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I expect that to start a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Tis the season, you know!Its beginning to look a lot like everything!Dear Dale, Thank you for the wonderful review of Chicago.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FLBy Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. received his education in four of them. 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. Most people are eager to get somewhere. But their own actions often betray their intentions, for they become guardians of the status quo. Others make no careful plans to move ahead and, as a result, also go nowhere. And one also finds those who take a bold step to move forward but soon retreat, the moment any obstacle presents itself in their path. Living life to the fullest requires risks, constant risks. Years ago I was reminded of the obvious: even a turtle will not move forward unless it sticks its neck out. But fear, shyness and other related factors, keep many humans from making necessary progress. On the other hand, a large segment of the human species is so stuck in the rat race that many forget that one is to soar like eagles. No matter how far anyone has come in life, there remain new heights to climb, new goals to reach, new experiences to enjoy! No accomplishment, as significant as it may ever be, should be concluded with a period, thus denoting that it is the end. Each achievement, instead, should be followed by a comma to indicate there is more to come; the time of new pursuits, new discoveries, new inventions, new theories which can benefit the human race, is far from over, and one needs to live with that understanding always in view. Surely, humans have the inbuilt drive toward progress, and no today is of any significance unless it is a mere step in moving toward tomorrow, while maintaining continuity. Obviously, many things in life are fixed and should not be altered. But there is much that is also experimental and, therefore, can be changed, improved, or even discarded. Not to be forgotten, however, is that all human steps toward tomorrow need not mean a total cut from yesterday. A major, old problem, especially in the field of philosophy, is the tendency of discarding tradition. In fact, it is often obvious how modern philosophy maintains a concerted rejection of tra dition, as a contemporary writer has put it. All major advances, be they in personal, human experience, or through new developments of science and technology, as well as in any other field of endeavour, necessitate the steps previously taken in those enterprises, in order to move beyond! What is old is not necessarily bad, just as what is new is not necessarily superior. Arthur Koestler, with a keen sense of humour, had referred to those who are prone to reject the past as men born without umbilical cords. While not rejecting the past just because it is old, its imperative that the things of yesterday will never become distractions in ones daily effort to move ahead toward a new tomorrow. What is new at any age may be renewed continually so as to make a positive difference to new times in the calendar into which one advances. Only what turns sour or rotten, needs to go, the sooner the better!Moving Toward Tomorrow By Douglas Heizer Among the big news items in Boca Raton this past year has been the construction and imminent opening of the first oncampus football stadium at Florida Atlantic University. Theres been a lot of reveling on the Boca turf about this historic event that will bring college football into the city -into perhaps the largest university-level sta dium located between Miami and Orlando. During a recent sta dium tour, the Boca Raton Tribune staff learned a lot about the sports venue and how the 30,000 seat sta dium could be turned into a 60,000-seat location by simply enclosing the ends of the stands. We were very impressed with the facility. But during the trip, I thought of something that was even more impressive. This isnt just a stadium for FAU. It is a sta dium for everyone in Boca Raton. In other words, this is our stadium. Its not just a place for a university to play football. We were told that only five home football games will take place there this season. That gives the university the OK to hold 10 more outdoor events. So, its likely the FAU stadium will become a loca tion for performances and concerts. Inside the facility are rooms that will accommodate weddings, wedding receptions, bar and bat mitzvahs and all types of gatherings, from class reunions to graduation parties. Special kitchens will prepare meals for revelers who join together at the stadium when the FAU Fighting Owls are not on the gridiron. Of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to chow down while the Owls are grinding up and down the 100-yard playing area. There are plenty of concession stands as well as food service in the special boxes up above the action. Theres even a restaurant-type area in the press box. Lets not forget that a lot of people including individuals and local agencies have already stepped up as the stadiums opening day gets closer. The Schmidt Family Foundation donated $2 million for construction of the $70 million facility. Subway also has a deal and that sub sandwich firm already has a sign on the Jumbotron. Speaking of naming rights, Delray Acura and Delray Hyundai recently signed on as corporate sponsors of the new FAU stadium. The nine-year, $800,000 contract gives the family owned and operated dealerships naming rights to the stadium's Premier Club and Priority Club seating areas, which are to be known as the Delray Acura Club Suites and the Delray Hyundai Club. The stadium itself has no specific name yet. But there are several people who might qualify. There would certainly be a lot of local pride in naming the arena Howard Schnellenberger Stadium in honor of the legendary football coach who came to FAU more than a decade ago, and kicked off the universitys first football team in 1999. No doubt there has been thought to naming the stadium after Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, who has donated to so many organizations, including FAU. You could even name it after Frank Brogan, who was FAU president at the time the stadium idea was first coming to fruition. He is now chancellor of the entire state university system, so the honor would not go unnoticed. Who knows, maybe it could even be named the Boca Raton Tribune Stadium. Whatever it is called, the real name of the stadium as I said before is ours. It will have an impact on everyone in Boca. The city has been closely involved in its creation. The state and county, too, with plans on the table to build a new I-95 entrance/exit to filter traffic from Glades Road to the rear of the campus on Spanish River Road. An open house will be held at the stadium Oct. 14, a day before the Owls take on Western Kentucky in the first-ever, Boca-based football game. Dont forget to visit our stadiumLets get ready to celebrate the opening of our stadium

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FLFor more than 10 years, the Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commissions (CJC) Weed and Seed program has been sponsoring a countywide summer camp, Drug Education for Youth (DEFY). This years week-long camp for children ages 9 to 12 was held in August at the Club Managers Association of America Therapeutic Recreation Complex in Lake Worth. The program included a parental involvement session facilitated by Planned Parenthood of Palm Beach County that offered parents key ways to stay involved in their childrens lives. Weed and Seed staff coordinated camp activities that were held in Delray Beach, Belle Glade, West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach and Gramercy Park. Delray Beach Police Department Weed and Seed Coordinator Cerina Anderson and CJC Program Development Specialist Rosalind Murray served as co-directors of the camp. It culminated in a graduation ceremony on Aug. 13 recognizing 65 graduates from throughout the county. DEFY began in 1993 as a youth outreach program developed by the U.S. Department of Navys Drug Demand Reduction Task Force. Staff serves as military role models in promoting positive life choices to reduce the demand for illegal drugs. The program begins with a five-day summer camp, followed by 10 months of mentoring that includes taking the children to special events. Teaching the importance of educa tion, health, physical fitness and citizenship combats the temptations and peer pressure associated with drugs and gangs. Instead of dealing with these problems after they have ruined lives, DEFY employs less costly, preventive measures to instill a strong anti-drug foundation in young participants. Law enforcement officers from Delray Beach, West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach teach the classes and serve as mentors. The U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Attorneys Office partner to make the DEFY program a reality.

For the past seven years Luke Barron has been helping children that are less fortunate in the community. Friends4kids, the organization he created, has evolved and expanded with friends telling friends. Each year, Lukes group fundraises and distributes more than 600 toys and hundreds of new books to various Palm Beach County organizations. This year, the 2011 Friends4kids has already donated new books to Florence Fuller Library, Boynton Beach Charter School, Wayne Barton Study Center and DOT Success Program. The DOT Success Program recognized Lukes philanthropic spirit and has appointed him to the Teen Committee charged with improving literacy in the community. 2011-2012 is the year to create awareness in the community regarding literacy, Barron indicated. We want to help supply several schools in our area with new books. Based on his experience, Luke stated that: You may have given a needy child an entirely different view of the world by providing them kindness when they needed it, sometimes all it takes is a smile and it can have a profound effect. We are strangers coming into their lives for one day but that one act of kindness may have an everlasting effect, well never know but we can only hope. Its not about me; this Student from Olympic Heights wants to help the less fortunate Luke Barron is truly an effort that takes lots of people to make it happen. This initiative is in line with the district key result of proficiency in reading for all students of each ra cial/ethnic group as mea sured by FCAT and FCAT Writes. The organization is currently looking for donations of new toys for children ages 3-6 yearolds.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.This past Sunday, the inaugural Downtown Open Market of the season fea tured items such as vintage clothing and accessories, natural bath and body goodies, handmade indie crafts, specialty pet items, handmade & vintage jewelry, art, baked goods and more. Boca's Downtown Open Market is being held at the Monument Piazza at Royal Palm Place once a month on Sunday (except November 2011) from 10am-4pm. Among our most interesting finds was a booth named Enticing TidBits, the creative brains behind this cottage industry being local residents Kim and Deonna. As they explain it, Many of the items we use for our purses and handbag collections come from humble beginnings. Fabrics used are mainly those found as fabric samples in Interior Design/ Decorator showrooms and furniture stores. Then there are the tidbits, which are many of the trimmings, beaded edging and tassels used to coordinate when picking out your sofa fabric and matching pillow trims. Some of the more unusual items they use are found objects old collections of buttons, closures, glass beads, old necklaces, etc. When viewed as baubles, bangles and beads, these great finds become treasures. It is easy to see from the quality and workmanship in their pieces that these designs are truly a labor of love. In addition to a beautiful array of purses, hand and tote bags, they also offer matching accessories for pets. Just imagine going out with your dog adorned with a beautifully trimmed silk bandanna that coordinates perfectly with the stunning handbag you are carrying. The selection of these coordinating pieces is quite extensive, and we couldnt resist a damask and animal print bandanna that had a matching bag with a gold chain handle. Our purchases also included a beautiful creamy ivory and gold shell print tote bag. Definitely on the shopping list for next month are some silk and embroidered purses that will be perfect for use as evening bags for all the parties and events coming up...and definitely some more of those fabulous doggie bandannas.

The grace period for red-light runners caught on cameras that were activated on July 25 ended Friday, Sept. 24. The fine for running a red light is $158. If not paid within 30 days, it goes up to $264. Citations are issued by mail and no points are assessed. A private company, American Traffic Solutions (ATS), installs, maintains and monitors the traffic cameras at no cost to taxpayers. The cameras shoot photos and video 24 hours a day of every vehicle that goes through a red light. Currently, red-light cameras are operational at the following county intersections: East-west Lantana Road at Jog Road Eastwest Palmetto Park Road at Powerline Road Southbound Powerline Road at Palmetto Park Road These are the first camera-monitored intersections in unincorporated Palm Beach County. Others that will soon have ac tive cameras include: East-west Atlantic Avenue at Jog Road East-west Hypoluxo Road at Military Trail Westbound Lake Worth Road at Military Trail Motorists are also reminded there will be no further grace periods.

Hager, who was elected to his first term last fall, is being recognized for his suc cessful efforts to give school boards the authority to ban smoking on school grounds. Hager expressed appreciation for the honor, saying, Exposure to toxins in sec ond hand smoke can cause serious health issues such as asthma, cancer and heart disease, and that exposure can be prevented. Given that tobacco use accounts for nearly one-third of all cancer deaths Representative Hager chose to file legislation to grant statutory authority to school boards to address smoking on campus. I am humbled by this recog nition and award, said Hag er. But I can accept it only as a proxy on behalf of all the outstanding volunteers and others who labor tirelessly on a daily basis to stamp out all forms of cancer. Representative Hager has had an immediate impact on the war on cancer, said Paul Hull, the Florida Divisions Vice President for Advocacy and Public Policy. He recognized a shortcoming in state law that left Floridas kids at significant public health risk, and he met the issue head on. He clearly stood out to us among the House Freshman class this year. The Award was presented at the American Cancer Societys Annual Relay for Life Summit attended by nearly 1,000 American Cancer Society volunteers.Cancer Society honors Hager for successful tobacco control eortsRepresentative Bill Hager is shown speaking to American Cancer Society volunteers BOCA RATON It took some two hours Monday night for the Boca Ra ton City Council to increase the citys tax rate 13 cents per $1,000 valuation for the 2011-2012 fiscal year that begins Oct. 1. The vote at the end of the lengthy financial session was 3-2, with Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie and Councilwoman Constance Scott casting nay votes. Voting for the budget were Mayor Susan Whelchel and Councilmen Anthony Majhess and Mike Mullaugh.City Manager Leif Ahnell, who proposed and supported the increase in the financial levy from $3.02 to $3.15 per $1,000 valuation, said Bocas tax rate has been stable for 40 years. I dont think its going to change. There are economic cycles and swings.Haynie and Scott battled to keep the rate at $3.02. The latter hung tight to her proposal to use some $2.4 million in reserve funds to plug the gap between revenue and expenses. She said that money would be returned to the reserve fund over time. Scott also suggested either leasing or selling the city-owned golf course on Glades Road. Whelchel, Majhess and Mullaugh nixed that plan, but did say they would consider reviewing the possibility of leasing city property at a future time as a revenueraising measure.Most council members also endorsed Haynies sug gestion to hold a financial summit to address budget problems expected in coming years. Ahnell said the city budget situation will be worse next year and he warned of an increasing gap between revenue and expenses that must be addressed.Haynie said the financial summit might be the place to consider this problem. "We need to look very long and hard at some of these historic deficits we've been carrying," she said. "Even with this grim financial future, we do have some opportunities." The budget for the coming fiscal year includes the same level of services that the city funded in 20102011. In addition to raising the tax rate, the council also hiked the fire services fee from $60 to $80 per year. There was also small increase in the rubbish fee Due to a lack of financing, the city manager said, there are no new programs in the budget. The spending package includes $1.9 million for ball fields at Countess de Hoernle Park, but that money is coming from the Greater Boca Ra ton Beach & Parks District. In response to those who complain that the citys tax rate has soared, Ahnell pointed out that the city of Boca Raton gets only 17 cents of every tax dollar collected. The rest goes to other taxing authorities such as the county, school district and water district.Under the property tax rate of $3.15 per $1,000 in property value, the owner of a home assessed at $350,000 who took the $50,000 homestead exemption would pay about $945 in city property taxes, an increase of about $39 over last year. A home assessed at $350,000 last year likely would pay only about $4 more this year under the new rate because of declining property values, Ahnell said.During budget discussion, Scott was adamant about tapping city reserves. The city was able to accrue some $20 million in reserves during better financial times. But she noted that its taxpayer money.Did we put that money in reserves because Boca wanted to have a nice fat bank account?" Scott asked. "Lets use this money to get the people through these tough economic times. I think we're in an economic emergency. Were in a rainy day."Ahnell noted that the citys reserves are just for emergencies.We have hurricane reserves, debt service reserves and pension reserves.If the city were to take money from these accounts, next years budget would start out in a hole to make up for what was removed.Scott did get backing from Haynie on her proposal to sell or lease the city golf course on Glades Road. Golf is a losing proposition, she said, focusing her comments only on the golf course on Glades.Ahnell said the Glades Road course which is ac tually two courses, a 9-hole executive and 18-hole championship is not losing money. He said there was a drop in revenue this past year because of repair work done on the greens. Mayor Whelchel said she was not in favor of selling or leasing city property, and we cant do it tonight. Im all right with future discussions. But it has to be properly evaluated.Boca City Council nudges tax rate up 13 cents; two members disagree

The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office notified the Boca Raton Tribune that it has placed a hold on Broward County Jail inmate Robert Kovacs for the first degree murder of Bozena Lillian Kovacs. PBSO said the suspect is still incarcerated in Broward County on an unrelated charge while waiting to be transferred to the Palm Beach County Jail and arraignment on the murder charge. The Palm Beach Sheriffs Office had confirmed that Kovacs was considered a person of interest in the shooting death of 49-year-old Bozena Lillian Kovacs, whose body was found in the familys rented home in the Coral Bay community in Boca Chase west of Boca Raton. PBSO said that on Sept. 20, Kovacs was arrested by Fort Lauderdale Police and the South Florida U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force on a misdemeanor warrant for Violation of Pretrial Release/No Contact Order. Kovacs, 44, was arrested at a Pollo Tropical restaurant on Federal Highway near Southeast 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale between 5 and 6 p.m. on Sept. 20, officials said. Investigators said they received a tip that he was staying at a local hotel.z PBSO said that marshals had been tracking Kovacs through the weekend and received informa tion about the hotel on Sunday when the surveillance started, he said. Investigators said Bozena Kovacs died of a single gunshot to her head. Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokesman Eric Davis said her 21-yearold daughter discovered her mother's body the morning of August 15 in the bedroom of their home in the 18000 block of Clear Brook Circle. Bozena Kovacs' daughter had gone out with friends about 8 p.m. on Thursday. When she returned home between 1:30 and 1:45 a.m. she found the garage door open. Her stepfather's black Cadillac was missing, Davis said. Reports say Bozena Kovacs and her two grown children moved into the home in the Coral Bay community in Boca Chase about three weeks ago. Her husband followed last week, according to reports. The School Board of Palm Beach County has launched a search for a new superintendent of schools and is conducting a series of meetings to gather community input.

Invitations and fliers containing the dates, times and locations are going out to all employees, parents, students, volunteers, partners and community groups and members. The sessions are expected to run from 6 to 8 p.m The schedule is: October 3 Palm Beach Gardens High October 4 Atlantic High October 5 Lake Worth High October 6.

Additional information, including Superintendent qualifications, will be added to the site in the coming days. There is a lot of parent and community involvement and interest in our schools, district and School Board, and we are working hard to make sure every stakeholder has an opportunity to participate in this important personnel decision, said Chairman Frank Public input sought in superintendent search Schools Superintendent Bill MaloneBarbieri.

She urged those with no material things to volunteer. It doesnt cost anything, she said. You give of yourself. Looking over the crowd as the skies got a little darker, the Countess said, I am overwhelmed and very humbled by the event.

By Marc Kent The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Cloud 9 Opens Theater Season at FAUCarmens Premier Restaurant atop the waterfront Bridge Hotel at 999 East Camino Real in Boca Raton (561-368-9500) offers fine dining Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and a superb Sunday brunch. Executive Chef Dudley Rich and his dedicated staff have honed their menus to present outstanding selec tions of starters/ small plates, house specialties, entrees and desserts. The featured shrimp chowder is smooth and not heavy with a slight kick thats most tasty while this days soup du jour was a deep flavored split pea with fine ham pieces light on the palate, though. Carmens house salad with walnuts, dried cranberries and goat cheese with a dressing that really enhanced the ingredients great! The untraditional Caesar was very light we prefer a more robust dressing but its just our preference. Anchovies are yours for the asking Do you indulge? The eggplant and goat cheese ravioli were pure pillows of flavor with their thyme cream sauce while the plump sea scallops with a soft bacon wrapping were sweet treats in a delicious celery root, apple puree a favorite. Two dips are listed, a smoked trout and avocado version quite smooth and sweet with a dusting of bacon bits and served with pita points. Then, a warm crab, artichoke and spinach dip with crusty French bread, full flavored and filling. We did not sample their seared ahi tostada nor the shrimp cocktail but did try the shrimps peppered vodka cocktail sauce it has character and a real bite! Signature Chefs flatbreads are offeredvarious taste combinations to tempt one and all. Carmens source of natural, grain fed beef is Harris Ranch certified beef from a supplier of almost 40 years the best available. We chose the king of steaks, the bonein, 16 oz rib eye, ordered and served medium rare and found it to be perfect we sampled Chefs signa ture port wine and shallot reduction along with his dried cherry demi glaze, then the roasted garlic and rosemary jus. Each of these was delicious with our rib-eyeseek out your own favorite. We also had the 14 oz veal chop very tender and most flavorful when ordered medium. Sides of sauted wild mushrooms and truffle butter were tasted with the meats there were carrots, string beans and creamy mashed potatoes served as well. We note that a 8 oz charbroiled filet mignon is available that well try another evening. Carmens has seven entrees on menu a peppercorn crusted swordfish with morel sauce and diced vegetables, a mustard crusted fillet of salmon with an asparagus raft and tomato basil fondue, roasted chicken breast Provencal with basil polenta and glazed carrots, jumbo lump crab cakes with whole grain mustard beurre blanc and grilled jumbo shrimp with lemon rice and a cilantro mint pesto. The two we tasted were medium rare grilled minted lamb chops with a great sweet pea and mint risotto and then the tempura snapper with stir-fried vegetables and a tangy/sweet chili sauce. Both dishes a delight! This days special desserts from Chef Dudley, included a pistachio praline basket with sorbet therein, a chocolate mousse torte with raspberry sauce and a an apple tart with vanilla bean ice cream each one was savored as each had a distant personality all fine treats. While all menu pricing is in line with gourmet offerings, there is a special offer for two diners that is a bargain. Choose from either the house salad or the Caesar salad or the soup du jour. Then select entre offerings of filet mignon, pork chop, filet of salmon, chicken breast or spinach tagliatelle all with ac companiments. Have a bottle of select house wine and the Chefs daily selec tion of dessert and coffee. This delightful menu is prix fixe at only $69. a treat! Menus change seasonally but the quality remains steadfast this is a treasure for all to share.

Cloud 9 is set in colonial Africa in Victorian times and roughly 100 years later in London circa 1979. The same actors appear in each act, but in different roles and in some cases different gender. For the actors only 25 years have passed, further compounding the surreal aspects of the play. Director Desmond Gallant cautions this is adult stuff, with rough language, sexual references and general hanky-panky, and it is recommended only for those 16 and older. Tickets are $20 general admission, $12 FAU students, and $16 for staff and alumni. Call 800-564-9539. Dweezil Zappa Offers Fitting Tribute to Brilliant Dad For those of us not lucky enough to have seen Frank Zappa and his bizarre musical group the Mothers of Invention live, we have Dweezil Zappa, Franks son, carrying the torch for his dad with his Zappa Plays Zappa show, which played Mizner Park Amphitheater this past Saturday. Zappa was the opening act for the renowned progressive rock-jazz group Return to Forever, but for this musician, Zappa was the main attraction. The music of Frank Zappa is very complex, often funny and unpredictable Dweezil Zappa spent an entire year listening and playing along with his fathers recordings to perfect his sound. Zappa recruited a first rate band to fill out the myriad sound landscape. They include Scheila Gonzalez on sax, flute and vocals; Pete Griffin, bass, Billy Hultin, marimba and percussion, Jamie Kime, guitar, Joe Travers, drums and vocals and Chris Norton, keyboards and vocals. Dweezil Zappa doesnt sing and he didnt do much talking either. He left that up to his lead vocalist, Ben Thomas, who has a gregarious, engaging stage presence. For me the highlight of Zappas set was when he invited RTF pianist Chick Corea onstage, and the two traded licks on King Kong. It was a virtuoso experience. As good as Return to Forever is (especially with special guest violinist Jean-Luc Ponty), their music is not as compelling, exciting or purely entertaining as Zappas. Forthcoming Mizner Park Amphitheater events are a Kingdom Call fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 8; the 2011 Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 22 and Rick Springfield and Jack Wagner in concert at 8 p.m. Nov. 4. Tickets for that Live Nation event are $38.50-$98.50. Scene from Cloud 9

The comedy opens Sept. 30 and plays through Oct. 16. Tickets are available through membership or individually at $30. Student tickets are half-price. For reservations, call The Playhouse Box Office at (561) 272-1281 Ext. 4. For Group Reservations, call (561) 272-1281 Ext. 5. Sunshine Boys is a loving tribute to the great comic performers of a bygone era. It was a smash hit on Broadway and later became an Academy Award-winning film. It tells the story of Al Lewis and Willie Clark, a comedy team who headlined in vaudeville for 43 years. But Willie has refused to speak to Al for over a decade, ever since Al decided to retire from show business. As the play begins, a major network studio wants to feature the team on a television show about the history of comedy. But will Willie agree to overlook his anger and resentment to work with Al in one final, nationally televised performance? Willies nephew (and agent) Ben urges him to do the show, so the teams most famous sketch can be preserved for posterity. But Willie is not easily reconciled. Len Stanger and Charles Newman appear as Willie and Al while Frank Stanzione appears as Willies long-suffering nephew, Ben. Others in the cast include Tana Velen, Lisa Kerr and Kyle Reinberg.Delray Playhouse opens 65th season with Sunshine BoysBy Diane Feen You could say that Countess Henrietta de Hoernle has thrown out more life preservers for the arts, education, health and the needy than most sea captains. She has donated money for over 40 buildings and has been on every imag inable board of directors (40 in the past 25 years). So, it came as no surprise that The Countess was honored in the public square (Mizner Park Amphitheater) on her 99th Birthday last Saturday. The event was a huge success with over 100 people in attendance and a sweetness that pervaded the atmosphere like a tender mist. It almost seemed like Boca Raton had been returned to its subtler small town roots (circa 1985) with introductions from Mayor Susan Welchel, Poppi Mercier (executive director of the Children's Museum of Boca Raton) and the birthday girl, The Countess herself. Give Where You Live and Know Where it Goes, said the Countess, She also talked about the importance of doing good for our children and supporting charitable organizations. If you cant donate money for chari ties then volunteer your time, she added. It was a very humbling experience. The Countess, who was in a wheel chair, spoke from her heart about her pas sion that of charitable giving. She was clearly choked up by all the admiration and tenderness coming her way. After the unveiling of the eight foot bronze statue of The Countess and her late husband, Count Adolph De Hoernle, she was asked to speak. She thanked everyone profusely and then almost wept with appreciation. And if you know The Countess then you know she is a very determined woman with a mission and a sharp mind. But she was clearly moved by the huge bronze sculptor created by local artist, Yaacov Heller. We also had a chance to chat with The Countess a few days before her birthday celebration. She was as sharp as ever (in her 99th year) and told us that one of the things she is most proud of are the free concerts she sponsors in Mizner Park. It keeps families to gether and keeps kids off the street. Her other favorite thing is chocolate covered ginger candies. At noon everyday I get my candy, I cant wait. When asked what women should do to keep a good marriage (she has a good track record in the matrimony department) she said, Women should agree (and listen to) their man, but do what they want. Always be agreeable and do not interrupt him. What many people may not know is that The Countess is a night owl, staying up most nights until 1:30 am. I was always in the limelight and I enjoyed every min ute of it. I had so much fun, I traveled around the world 20 times and wined and dined with kings and queens. The Countess also attended the weddings of both Princess Diana and Fergie (so much for matrimony on that side of the sea). She said the wedding party lasted for two weeks. But closer to home (and more recent) she was overjoyed by the Birthday Bash held last week at the Peter Blum Family YMCA. Children serenaded her and everyone expressed their love for this philanthropist who is clearly a role model for others to emu late. Ive seen and done it all. Until I was 95-yearsold I went to two board meetings a day. But now Ive slowed down. From the waist up I am fine, but not from the waist down. It goes to show you that you dont need to have abs of steel or the legs of an athlete to do good. You only need a giving heart.COUNTING BLESSINGS FROM THE COUNTESS TheBocaRatonTribune.com

Hundreds of communities publish directories or websites listing local merchants in the area, but few residents actually tote that material with them on a daily basis. The 3/50 Project aims to repair that disconnect with LookLocal, the first iPhone app to showcase mom and pop businesses throughout North America. The goal is to put locally owned, independent brick and mortar merchants right in your hand, regardless of where you are at the moment, explains Cinda Baxter, founder of The 3/50 Project. No one remembers to grab a brochure that lists businesses when they walk out the door, but who leaves home without a phone? Independent plays the central role here: Merchants who have no outside corporate support of any kind--the same businesses who return the largest percentage of their annual revenue to the local economy, according to a 2009 Civic Economics Study. As a FREE download for iPhone users, LookLocal features independent brick and mortar merchants, locating those closest to where the user stands, regardless of whether theyre at home or on the road--a feature no regional or city-specific app can offer. Category shortcuts labeled Shop, Eat, Sip, Stay, Services, and Play allow users to immediately fine tune their results; click-to-call, mapping, and social media capa bilities offer immediate connection to both businesses and their friends in a single tap. LookLocal provides the missing link. Inclusion in LookLocal is free and automatic for independent brick and mortar merchants who sign up as Supporters on The350Project.net. Businesses who prefer more oomph in their profiles have the option of upgrading to an Enhanced listing, which includes their social media links, website links, and photographs, making it even easier to connect with consumers on a personal level. LookLocal promises to be an invaluable tool in the battle for consumer attention, because you hardly ever see anyone without a cell phone nowadays. Versions for iPad and Android are currently in development, thus covering the three largest iOS pipelines to mobile consumers. Its free to be in the app, free to download the app--this is a win/win for independent merchants, regardless of where theyre located, according to Baxter. About The 3/50 Project. The 3/50 Project exploded onto the consumer awareness scene on March 30, 2009 as a grassroots movement promoting locally owned, independent businesses. Unique in its approach, the Project advocates on behalf of all independent brick and mortars, from retailers to restaurants, hair salons to dry cleaners.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Gerald J. ShermanResponse to the Pitch. Are You Striking Out?What is The Pitch? Its a word with many meanings. In baseball the pitcher throws the ball at the batter to get a response strike, ball or a hit. In music it describes the different levels of sound. We also use it to describe a persons voice, low pitch or high pitch. In selling, its a verbal presentation which includes the talking points. In public relations its the talking points that are either voiced or written to the media in order to obtain publicity. Its also a tool in the form of a pitch letter/ press release that includes all the information to encourage the reporter to publish the information. This form of presentation is used daily by all of us in a business environment to communicate an idea, convince someone that what you are saying is important to them and basically tells them how your product/service benefits them. Unfortunately, many people may look at the word Pitch as an expression used by a fast talking salesperson trying to push a sale. But, this is far from the truth. Pitching, as we use the terminology, is an act of professional selling. It basically is the act of selling. In our previously published text book, The Real World Guide of Selling & Management, Gerald J. Sherman and Sar Perlman, Fairchild Publications, (2007), we indicated that selling is a professional endeavor and not a dirty word. We defined it as, An exchange of goods and services designed to deliver a mutual benefit for both buyer and seller, resulting in a continual and positive relationship. In pitching a story, you are actually looking to sell the other person on the content of the story and to indicate how it will be beneficial to both parties. Once the pitch is organized and all the possible information is in front of the person, the next and most important area is to determine if she/he is interested in what you are saying. During the pitch one should be aware of the reaction the pitch is having on the individual who is on the receiving end. Listening for an objection is essential during the pitch; it is a positive reaction because the objection usually indicates that there is a need for more information and your message is not completely understood. If you determine that in this activity you have answered their objections and they show an interest, the story has a chance and it is time to close the sale! The simple act of closing a sale, asking for a commitment, is some times the most difficult thing. But, once you have received a positive response, you are on your way to a suc cessful outcome.

But one important measure of success is impact the influence individuals have on people surrounding them, whether in the workplace, the community, or their own homes. What difference has their life had on others? Looking historically, as well as spiritually, few people have made as much of an impact with their lives as the apostle Paul, whose life and writings are presented in the Bibles New Testament. By the end of his life, Paul had been instrumental in spreading the Christian faith across the entire Roman Empire, despite traveling mostly on foot. Imagine what he might have accomplished if he hed had a jet, a cellular phone, and a fax machine! Even though many of us devote our lives to pursuits in the business and professional world, I believe the life of Paul offers many lessons that we could apply to our own lives. Here are keys to his successful life: SENSE OF DIREC TION: To achieve success, it is important to know where you are going what your goals and objectives are. I run straight toward the goal in order to win the prize (Philippians 3:14). UNDERSTANDING: We need to be able to deal with unexpected circumstances and rise above adversity. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation (Philippians 4:12). COMMITMENT: Once we embark on an important enterprise, success requires willingness to persevere in the face of difficulties and chal lenges. I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me (Acts 20:24). COMPASSION: Just as the apostle Paul remained sensitive to the needs of people around him, we also must strive to protect the best interests of those working with us. I may have all knowledgeand the faith to move mountainsbut if I dont have love, it does me no good (1 Corinthians 13:2-3). ENTHUSIASTIC FAITH: Successful leaders believe strongly in their mission, and their enthusiasm is contagious. I have the strength for all things through Christ who empowers me. I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses inner strength into me (Philip pians 4:13). SERVICE TO OTHERS: Self-centered leaders generally have short tenures. The leader devoted to serving others, helping them reach their goals, is the one that finds eager followers. I will be glad to spend all I have, and myself as well, in order to help you (2 Corinthians 12:15). STAYING POWER: The adage reminds us, It is not how you start, but how you finish. This certainly was true of Paul. I am hard-pressed on all sides, but Im never frustrated; Im puzzled, but never in despair; I am persecuted, but Im never deserted by God; I may be knocked down but Im never knocked out! (2 Corinthians 4:8-9). Try building these qualities into your own life and see what happens. 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved.

The Strikers will finish the regular season in fourth place in the NASL and will face FC Edmonton in the first round of the playoffs at Lockhart Sta dium on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 7:30p.m. Credit goes to Tampa Bay, said head coach Da ryl Shore, They took advantage of being a man up and deserved the game. Tampa Bays first and game-winning goal came at the 68 minute mark when Shane Hill found Keith Savage all alone behind the Strikers defense. Savage tucked his shot past Matt Glaeser to give FC Tampa Bay the 1-0 lead. The goal came 17 minutes after Strikers defender Cristian Arrieta was shown a straight red card for a challenge against FC Tampa Bays Tsuyoshi Yoshitake. The ejection forced the Strikers to play a man down the rest of the way and Tampa Bay was able to take advantage. FC Tampa Bays second goal came in second half stoppage time when Matt Clare was able to control a long pass and fend off his defender long enough to score his second goal of the season. The Strikers will look to move past this set back as they return home for their first playoff game since 2006. FC Edmonton will be their opponent for the fifth time this season. Fort Lauderdale is 2-11 against Edmonton this season with a win and a loss at Lockhart Stadium. Edmonton is a tough team who weve had four close games against, said Shore. It will be a tough challenge, but one that we will be ready for. The Montreal Impact were able to defeat the Strikers Fall To Tampa Bay; Will Face Edmonton In PlayosAtlanta Silverbacks, but NSC Minnesota kept them out of the playoffs by defeating the Carolina RailHawks. So the other first round match-up will be the Stars traveling south to face FC Tampa Bay at Al Lang Stadium. The Strikers welcome FC Edmonton to Lockhart Stadium on Saturday Oct. 1 at 7:30p.m. for the right to advance to the NASL Semifinals. By Chad BeattieBOCA RATON, Fla. A pair of victories last week extended the Lynn University mens soccer teams winning streak to six while improving its record to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the Sunshine State Conference. The Fighting Knights will look to continue their winning ways when they host Nova Southeastern on Wednesday, September 28, at 3 p.m. then travel to Tampa for a Saturday matchup slated for a 7 p.m. kick-off. Defense continues to be the strength of this Blue & White squad. Anchored by Jason Sangha and A.B. Magnusson in the middle and James Aldred and Micheal Kutscher on the outside, LU has limited opponents to just 17 shots in seven matches. That group worked its magic last week by holding Ave Maria and Florida Southern to a combined three shots on net. Those victories helped LU jump to No. 16 in the national top-25 poll. Additionally, Heiko Eberhardt emerged as an offensive force for Lynn. The Reichenbach, Germa ny, product scored three times in two matches, including the pivotal gametying goal in a 3-1 vic tory at Florida Southern. He is now second on the squad with four goals and nine points, trailing only Harald Gracholskis five goals and 10 points. Nova Southeastern (24-1, 0-2-0 SSC) has lost three-straight matches while allowing 14 goals during that stretch. One of the oldest rivalries in program history, Lynn owns a 24-3-4 record alltime against NSU since first meeting in 1986. The Knights, though, will be looking for revenge after a loss last season ended its eight-game unbeaten streak against the Sharks. Nova is scoring a little over a goal per game but is surrendering 2.12 goals per match to its opponents. The Blue & White Lynns Men soccer Team Looks to Continue Winning Streak meet up for another longstanding rivalry when they battle Tampa. Since first meeting in 1986, Tampa has gone 12-16-1 against Lynn. The Spartans have had a rough start to their season as they are winless through their first seven matches (0-6-1, 0-2-0 SSC). Five of their seven matches, though, have gone to overtime. Ryan Griffin and Dominic Cutrofello have scored five of UTs eight goals while all three goal keepers are allowing over two goals per game.

The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Strong physical contact OK for players, not for coaches? By: Pedro HeizerBoca Raton High School Bobcats football coach Keith Byars was fired this past week after allegedly shoving a player along the sidelines during the loss to Jupiter on Friday, September 16. The Palm Beach Post reported it has videotapes of the game that showed Byars shoving quarterback Kevin Anderson in the chest with two hands during an outburst in the second quarter of the 2619 loss to the Jupiter High School Warriors. The incident raises questions about proper behavior at a football game without really answering the questions. It also touches on a dichotomy affecting play at all levels of the game. Why is strong physical contact allowed on the playing field, but if a coach happens to touch a player, it will cost him is job? Byars took over the head coach position in 2009 when he replaced Eddie Giersbrook, who was forced out amid a Florida High School Athletic Association investigation into Boca Highs football for illegal recruiting practices. As a result of the FHSAA investigation, Boca Raton was placed on two years probation, fined $5,000 and vacated its 2008 wins. Byars had a record of 14-11 as the head coach of the Bobcats, leading them to a 9-3 record his first season at the helm leading them to the Regional Quarterfinals. The following season wasnt a walk in the park as the Bobcats struggled to a 4-6 record and missed the playoffs. Right now the Bobcats are 1-2. According to Palm Beach County School District spokesman Nat Harrington, Boca Raton High has named Lewis Burnham coach of its football team. The incident with Byars, who seemed to lack community support despite his obvious coaching abilities, isnt the first involving a football coach. In 2009, for example, Benjamin football coach Ron Ream was forced to resign after he was accused of putting his hands on a player during a practice, but later Ream was reinstated because of the support of the community. What is going on with this world? A football coach being fired for putting his hands on a player is ridiculous. Hes a foot ball coach, not a math teacher. Hes there to motivate the kids, push them to their best, and how can he do that if he will be fired if he touches his players? We are doing an injus tice to the student-athletes by doing this. Yes, I know football coaches should not hit kids but putting your hands on a player is not that same thing as physically hurting them. Have you ever seen an NCAA football game? Coaches grab players by their facemasks, shoulder pads and yell at them after a bad throw, a missed tackle or a fumble. If the player is so offended by what the coach had to say to him, maybe he shouldnt be playing football. Coaches are there to build character and no matter what you want to say, every coach plays to win the game. A coach that is a good guy will never succeed. Look at the great coaches in sports, Phil Jackson, Pat Riley, Don Shula, Jack McKeon, and others. Coaches like the ones mentioned above play to win the game. If you are going to try and tell me that high school football is not about winning, then please explain to me why do they have champion ships, records and the whole nine yards? Say what you want to about Keith Byars and his ability to coach, but his track record as a highcaliber athlete speaks for itself; an All-America at Ohio State before playing 13 years in the NFL. He played for the Eagles (1986-92), Dolphins (1993-96), Patriots (199697) and Jets (1998) and was named to the Pro Bowl in 1993 while with the Dolphins. Maybe Boca High wasnt the right place for him. Maybe he will find another place, maybe not. But one thing is for sure, if Boca High has good guys as their head coaches, they wont be seeing a championship for the next three decades.

It comes with the territory of being arguably the greatest player in the game today. A huge reason for the lockout can be linked to Lebron James, and his decision to join up with another superstar in Dwyane Wade, and an allstar Chris Bosh. Did Lebron do anything wrong? In my opinion the only thing he did wrong was announce it on live television, and the whole celebration afterwards. We all get to choose where we live, and where we would like to work, to an extent. Lebron just took that freedom and signed with Miami. No problems with that, but it showed who had all of the power. In the last CBA the players won. The owners started losing money (how much though, is up for debate), and the players had all of the power. The owners want to start making money again, and want some of the power back. The Celtics might have started the trend of stars com ing together, but LeBron, and the Heat took it to a new level, by not giving up anything to form the team. You can debate all you want to about is this good for the league or not?, but the consensus seems like the owners are against this. While Lebron signing with the Heat was not wrong, it started a bad trend in my opinion during last season. You heard more about the Carmelo Anthony soap opera, then actually what happened on the court last year. I can only imagine what a Nuggets fan went through last year, and how frustrating it had to be. Utah saw what was going on, and patiently waited who the loser was in the Carmelo sweepstakes between New Jersey and New York, and whoever the loser was, they would ship Deron Williams to them Now, I do not know what the owners can do to stop all of this, but it will be a repeat this upcoming season, whenever that is. The participants in this seasons reality drama will be Dwight Howard, and the Magic, and Chris Paul, and the New Orleans Hornets. With all of this hap pening, the finals had a much higher television ratings then in seasons past, but how long can that keep up? There is a good chance some Nuggets fans got so fed up with all of this last season, that they left the Just Blame LeBron James for the Lockout NBA. Same thing will happen in Orlando, and New Orleans if there is a repeat of this. You have to start to wonder about the fans of these small market teams, and how can they stay loyal, when the players are flocking to only a few teams. If there is not something dramatic done soon, they will be in baseball territory, where there about ten teams continually irrelevant. Now, was Lebron signing with the Heat a terrible move by him? No, he had every right to do that, and that is not my point. My point is he started a trend, which could be very bad for the league. The owners see that, and want to put a stop to it. Lebron proved the players had all of the power, and the owners want some of that power back.

In front of 82,249 fans in the Jordan-Hare Stadium, the FAU Owls fell to the defending national champions 30-14. After having a bye week, the Owls showcased their improvement. Right away the Tigers felt the Owl pressure when Cory Henry got an interception on the first play of the game which setup an FAU scoring drive. FAU was the first team to score after moving the chains 13 yards to set kicker Vinny Zaccarioup for a 39-yard field goal. Auburn answered quickly scoring on its next drive.
