He was also a regular contributor to the former Boca Raton News. With a passion for travel, Mr. Feigl and his wife circumnavigated the globe on a number of occasions, traveled to all seven continents and visited a total of 155 countries. Their last adventure was a world cruise in 2010 on the MS Amsterdam. A service was held Sept. 27, 2011 at Gutterman Warheit Memorial Chapel in Boca Raton. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Hospice by the Sea at 1531 West Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33486 or the Habilitation Center for the Handicapped, Inc. at 22313 Boca Rio Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33433.Ken Feigl, ex-Boca Chamber president, writer, world traveler dies at 84WEST PALM BEACH Former Gov. Claude Kirk, 85, who died at home in West Palm Beach Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011, was laid to rest earlier this week. A funeral service was held Monday, Oct. 3 at Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church, Palm Beach. The family received friends during a reception following the service. A private graveside service with military honors was then held at the South Florida National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations made be made in the governor's memory to The Everglades Foundation, 18001 Old Cutler Road, Suite 625, Palmetto Bay, FL 33157.

He served in the Marines in World War II and Korea and graduated from the University of Alabama Law School. He moved to Jacksonville in 1956 to found American Heritage Insurance. He became a Republican in 1960 to head the "Floridians for Nixon" campaign. Nixon carried the state by 3 percentage points over then-Sen. John F. Kennedy. Kirk ran for the U.S. Senate in 1964 and lost. He then ran for governor in 1966, saying he didn't like the way the government was operating. He lost his re-election Former Republican Florida Gov. Claude Kirk dead at age 85 bid to Democrat Reubin Askew in 1970 by a 57 percent to 43 percent margin. The next Republican to win a governor's race in Florida was Bob Martinez in 1986, again after Democrats split during a bitter primary. Like Kirk, Martinez failed to win re-election. Mr. Kirk and his wife, Erika, lived in West Palm Beach where the former governor spent most of his time in investment banking.Photo courtesy of Ybor City StogieShe is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.

The Golf Classic is the principal fundraiser for PROPEL, an eight-yearold non-profit organiza tion dedicated to servic ing Palm Beach Countys economically-challenged communities and specifically economically disadvantaged and at-risk youth. When the PROPEL Golf Classic was first conceived, it had a pro-celebrity component. Golfers could be paired with golf-loving retired NFL players and hang out with PROPEL Golf Classic set for Oct 20 at Boca Lago Country Club From left are golfers Grant Johnson, Michael Rankin, Drew Gaut and Dr. Gordon Johnson.them after the game. This year, the PROPEL board of directors decided the tournament was strong enough to stand on its own merit. It turns out that the NFL players were not as strong a draw as we thought, said board president Andy Scott, former Boca Raton Police Chief. This year, all proceeds will be going toward the kids and our scholarships. We think people will appreciate and understand that. They may not be football players, but participants in the PROPEL Golf Classic are among the movers and shakers of Boca Raton and nearby communities. Come join us for a Do you ever wonder where is our country and the world heading ? Will we ever see things the way they were before 9/11? I am a Boca Raton resident in my mid-60s and have over 40 years in the civil engineering profession. I was laid off by one of US largest engineering consulting firms over 2 years ago. Since my layoff, I have found no opportunities in my profession and have had to look elsewhere in other arenas for much lesser paying jobs. Being out of work for that extended period of time, I lost my house to short sale. Sound fa miliar? Many of you, I am sure, can relate. Every day we hear and read news reports about hurricanes, floods, torna dos, wild fires, landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, children murdered, rising gas prices, high unemployment, foreclosures, outrageous healthcare costs, etc. The list goes on and on. The gloom and doom of this world is constantly in front of us, everywhere we turn. I keep asking myself When will we hear something good? Well, our entire community has an opportunity to turn away from this and spend an evening of uplifting entertainment. to take our thoughts away from all of this negativity. Boca Glades Church has purposely planned a community outreach event to uplift everyone and hear some Good News through an evening of light-hearted/hysterical comedy and drama. Well known professional comedian Jeff Allen and dramatic actor Mac Mc Connell, narrator for Emmy award winning Ft. Lauderdale Christmas Pageant, will be providing a wonderful evening of professional entertainment at the November Night of Comedy and Drama on Friday, November 4 from 7:00-10:00 at Boca Glades Church.

Golf is followed by drinks and hors doeuvres at the Boca Lago clubhouse, and there will be silent and live auction with really good prizesall for a great cause. Thanks to the last two PROPEL Golf Classics, PROPELs educational programs have been expanded and three first-ever scholarships were awarded to PROPEL students in college. This past summer was its most active ever for PROPEL in providing activities for children who otherwise would be on their own. PROPEL provides ac tivities and outlets for local underprivileged youths who dont have an opportunity to attend summer camps or after school programs, explains event co-chair Ingrid Fulmer, Executive Vice President, Office Leasing for Coldwell Banker Commercial. These PROPEL activities give the kids a sense of belonging and camaraderie, and it helps them focus their energies on being productive forces in the community. PROPEL executive director Tolliver Miller admits he isnt much of a golfer. Besides, he is quite busy making sure the event runs smoothly. I never really have time to play 18 holes of golf, he says with a laugh. Its nice if you have four or five hours to spare. We really appreciate that our golfing friends are willing to help us raise money for PROPEL while playing a game they love.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FLBy Skip SheffieldBOCA RATON -It sure is good to have a friend like Jill Viner. Viner, a Boca Raton resident since 1984, became involved in philanthropy while a student at University of Miami. She is still on the board of the Diabetes Research Institute in Miami, and a major supporter of research in the fight against the disease. Now Jill Viner is cofounder and partner with the Barton G. Kids Hear Now Foundation, affiliated with the University of Miami Ear Institute (UMEI). A first Run Over Hear 5k marathon is planned for 7 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 at Crandon Park on Key Biscayne. We are seated at one of Jills favorite Boca Raton restaurants, Maxs Grille, to talk about the remarkably fast start-up of a new program to help hearingchallenged children transition to a world of sound and speech through the use of cochlear implant technology. Around four years ago my friend Barton G learned his daughter would be born profoundly deaf, she explains. His heartache touched me, and his lack of direction distressed me. We learned that if a child can be fitted with a cochlear implant early enough, the child can not only hear but develop speech in a regular fashion. The success of the operation on Bartons daughter inspired us to set up a foundation to help other children in similar situa tions. Wouldnt it be great to put this new procedureyou cant really call it a cureon the map? Barton G. Weiss is one of Miamis foremost restaurateurs, hotelier, ca terer and event-planner. It took three years of planning, research, fundraising and persuasion to get the Barton G. Kids Hear Now Foundation Cochlear Implant Family Resource Center up and running at the University of Miami. In its first year of operation, the foundation has helped about 100 children. This past summer it hosted a Camp Kids Hear Now outreach with 41 children with cochlear implants from 12 states at Camp Laure in Readfield, Maine. Jill has been my rock both in founding the Barton G. Kids Hear Now Foundation and in taking it to the levels of suc cess and effectiveness it has achieved today, commented Barton G. from his corporate headquarters. Without Jills tireless work and dedication, the Barton G. Kids Hear Now Foundation certainly would not be where it is. Jill was instrumental in all our galas as well as our partnership with the University of Miami, the summers inaugural Camp Cochlear and the establishment of the Family Resource Center. Unlike a hearing aid that amplifies incoming sound, a cochlear implant is a computerized device that bypasses damaged hair cells in the ear and converts sound waves into electrical energy to stimulate the auditory nerve. The Kids Hear Now Family Resource Center not only provides medical and technical help, but counseling for parents, family and children. It is good for children with cochlear implants to be with others like them, explains Viner. Cochlear Bocas Jill Viner supports race to benet hearing implants enable a child to develop normal hearing and speech, but sometimes regular kids question what those things are in your ear and why cant they be taken out? The goal of Barton G. Kids Hear Now Founda tion is to be the hearing resource not just for Miami or Florida, but the whole country and eventually Central and South America. We want Miami to be a destination for cochlear research and implementa tion, says Viner. We were impatient to see results, and thats how this happened so fast. We dont want this foundation to be dormant, or just perform research. We want it to make a difference in the lives of deaf children. Runners for Run Over Hear are invited to register at www.kidshearnow. org. There is a $25 fee, which includes all related activity. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Call 305-576-3006.From left are Barton G. Weiss, singer-actress Vanessa Williams and Jill Viner at the 2010 Hear Kids gala.

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor Remember the movie, Its a Wonderful Life? In his character of George Bailey, James Stewart opened a little bank in his home town of Bedford Falls. It was the salvation of the little hamlet, helping poor folk build homes and businesses. And when nasty Mr. Potter stole his deposit on Christmas Eve and threatened to foreclose on Bailey, townspeople turned out in droves to give him the cash he needed to get through. Its too bad things like that dont happen any more. Witness the latest unfairness being foisted upon us lowly consumers. Bank of America has announced it will begin charging debit-card users $5 a month to pay for purchases. The move, the bank says, comes as the cards increasingly replace cash and as banks look for ways to offset the loss of revenue from a new rule that will limit how much they can collect from merchants. I told my wife about it the other day. She sighed and said, Yes, pretty soon theyll all be doing it. I hope not. I think Bank of America is just trying to weasel more money out of its customers many of whom are barely able to get by. Just last week, the Boca Raton City Council spent more than two hours arguing about whether to raise the citys tax rate 13 cents per $1,000 valuation. Thirteen cents! For some residents, that would translate to just a $4 increase in their tax bill. Yet Bank of America thinks nothing of sticking us for $5 a month just to use a debit card. Unlike banks, we poor, hard-working Americans cant go running to the president for a bailout, like so many of those financial institutions did in just the past couple of years. I wouldnt mind if the banks got the money and then revised their internal systems so they wouldnt have to go running to Washington for another handout. But no. Theyd rather stick their hand deeper into the pockets of consumers, some of whom could use that $5 to pay for such things as well, food, gasoline or medication. Already, too many people have to choose between buying medicine or food with their dwindling dollars. I found this interesting bit of information on the Associated Press. Paying to use a debit card was unheard of before this year and is still a novel concept for many consumers. But several banks have recently introduced or started testing debit card fees. That's in addition to the spate of other unwelcome changes checking account customers have seen in the past year. Bank of America's announcement carries added weight because it is the largest U.S. bank by deposits. The AP also quoted Bank of America spokeswoman Anne Pace, who said, Customers will only be charged the fee if they use their debit cards for purchases in any given month. Those who only use their cards at ATMs won't have to pay. Still, this is the beginning of a nasty trend from an industry that should be watching its own store and leaving customers alone. I can remember troubling bank situations that long predate the current recession. When I was treasurer of an organization back up north, the bank charged us a large overdraft fee when the account went one cent in the hole. Even in Florida, I have had to deal with massive overdraft fees that dwarf the amount involved. (A $34 fee for a $2 overdraft. Thats just a way to steal from consumers.) Ive toyed with the idea of keeping all my money in a shoebox. No overdraft fees. No debit card fees. No hassles. No bailouts. Im heading to the shoe store.Are consumers getting gouged? You can bank on it This week, we offer a selection of comments about Publisher Douglas Heizers column concerning the new football stadium on the campus of Florida Atlantic University. ["Lets get ready to celebrate the opening of our stadium, edition 67) He said it should be considered our stadium since it will impact on us all. Some comments from www.fauowlsnest.com: Did the city make any monetary contribution to the sta dium? The article is great in that it points out what needs to happen for the stadium and the team to be successful the acceptance by the community. And not just Boca, but all of Palm Beach County and "most of" South Florida as well, at least including Broward County now that the Marlins have moved back to the south. It will serve as the focal point of being "our" stadium and "our team(s)", and "our" university! Many complain about it being built for "football" and "playing only five games a year, what a waste of our taxpayer dollars". First, no taxes were used to finance the stadium (at a public university), unlike the Marlin's new palace for a privately held business. And second, this pulling the community together to support the university after all these years and pulling the student body together more tightly than even before is really what the stadium is all about improving the total experience of the university. When alumni have more pride in their Alma Mater, they will donate more back to it and FAU will become a "real" university. Be there and see this most beautiful stadium and yell and cheer for "your" Owls! I like the design of the stadium now with the palm trees inside the stadium. But if we close it up (to create more seats), it would look like a UCF Bounce House.

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. By Douglas Heizer Human nature frequently reacts when things dont go the anticipated way. People often complain, both for right reasons and for wrong expectations. Some complaints tend to cover up a persons own inadequacy at a time when other solutions could and should have been sought and brought forth. Other complaints may appear justifiable, on the surface, and have some validity if the complainer is being adversely affected by what is being complained about. It is indeed very human for a person to complain when protection is lacking, when enemies rise up against, when other conditions are so adverse in life that there seems to be no end in sight, and no palpa ble help while those situa tions persist. The question why shall always be used by humans as long as the ages roll. And that is perfectly alright if, indeed, one is seeking an honest answer and solution. Dr. Augusto Cury, a renown Brazilian psychia trist and influential author, makes an interesting point when he comments: We suffer all the time for things which have not yet happened. More than 90% of the monsters we create shall never become real, but we are specialists in creating them. Most of the issues people complain about relate to the results of their personal, bad choices. Some may complain about a physician who cannot heal them of something, when the same physician had consistently addressed some bad habits or vices that person should eradicate but didnt. Others may complain about a situation which unfolded in their life, in spite of the fact they had been adequately forewarned of the consequences of certain actions of theirs, or lack of the same. Complaints about varied situations may also be invalid, especially when circumstances tend to change. Yet, one can be pro-active in altering their course. Still other complaints may lack validity for they relate to imagined conditions, even unreal occurrences in life, instead of tangible, concrete realities. The badness of others, the cruelty of many, distortions and dishonesty adversely affecting a person, are among the justifiable complaints one may make, be that to a political representative, in a Court of law, or to others capable of improving conditions or seeking restitution on ones behalf. One should always be careful when complaining about anything. To be avoided are complaints about what all humanity shares from the beginning. Even adverse experiences may be the best teachers we get. Unless we can change the course of events, let us glad accept what comes our way and not be paralysed by whatever we cannot improve. Ultimately, God gladly hears our laments and can offer His remedy!Are Your Complaints Justied?It appears the hot, steamy, humid weather were suffered through this past summer is finally over.

Cadet Airman Caldwell said that though he has been involved for a short time, I have learned a lot, including CPR, Operational Risk Management and other safety lessons that will serve me well. Cadet Hudson Rickard voiced that, I also have enjoyed the friendships that I have made with some of the cadets in my squadron." Cadet Airman Burrage wrote in his essay, Im 13. I dont usually think about goals. I just try to get good grades and pass my exams so I can be promoted to the next grade. However, CAP has started me thinking about my future.

BOCA RATON Boca Raton Police arrested suspect about 8:40 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 2 for allegedly shooting his wife at a home on NW 25th Way, a police report says. Public Information Manager Mark Economou said that when officers arrived, they saw a female wearing a bloodstained tshirt walking on the sidewalk. They also saw a male bleeding in the front yard of a nearby house yelling he had been shot. As officers were assessing the situation, another male, identified as Joseph Montique, 34, of Boynton Beach, came out of the front door of the house at 2880 NW 25 Way. Montique had his hands in the air and in one hand, he was holding a gun, said police. Montique complied with officers orders to put down the gun and get on the ground. As officers were putting Montique in handcuffs, he told them that he had shot the victim, the police report said. Officers searched the house and discovered several spent shell casings and a knife lying on the floor near a back bedroom. The female told officers that she had recently filed for divorce and her husband, Montique, was having trouble handling it. She also said, He shot him. The victim was taken to Delray Medical Center where he was treated for multiple gunshot wounds. Boca Raton detectives interviewed Montique who told them he suspected his wife was cheating on him, so he drove by the house and saw her car and another unfamiliar car in the driveway. Police said Montique entered the house and discovered his wife and the victim in a bedroom. Montique initially told detec tives the victim had a knife and later stated that he (Montique) actually planted the knife, the police report said. Detectives charged Montique with attempted first degree murder.Boca Police charge suspect with allegedly shooting wifes boyfriendThe Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office is seeking a volunteer medical specialist with time to review cases. The Financial Crimes Unit is searching for a licensed physician with training either in gerontology and/or psychia try. The doctor, who could be semi-retired or retired, would work with investigators and supply critical information and guidance that would help with putting together cases and knowing which had the potential to succeed in court. Specifically, the doc tor would be asked to evaluate medical records to determine the victims mental and physical state at the time of the perpetration of the fraud. The doctor would help prepare both officers and victim for testimony and might be called on to testify him or herself. Without this help, officers either have to make judgment calls that often can be challenged by an attorney in court or spend hard to come-by budget dollars to pay for consultancy services. With the numbers of doctors in Palm Beach County it would seem that someone would have the time to help us help elderly victims in this county, which is often called the fraud capital of the nation, said Lt. Christopher Keane. The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office has almost 4,000 volunteers and has been recognized state-wide and nationally. The volunteer services unit is comprised of professionally skilled and talented individuals that have come together to share their time and assist the sheriffs office in any way they can.

As the lawn man approached the SUV, the driver pointed a black gun at him and said, Stop or Ill shoot. The victim stopped and watched as two other males took lawn equipment out of his trailer and threw it into the back of their SUV. When the suspects drove off, the victim wrote down the license plate number of the SUV and called police. Boca Raton detectives obtained the vehicle information and associated addresses from the tag.

BOCA RATON -Imperial Holding Inc.s office in Boca Raton was closed last week after FBI agents raided the building at 701 Park of Commerce Blvd. A statement from the company said shares dropped as much as 75 percent the day the Feds raided the offices of the firm which makes lumpsum payments to buy life insurance policies and structured legal settlements. Soon afterward, the New York Stock Exchange halted trading in the firms shares. According to Reuters, the offices are located inside a building set in the landscaped grounds of a spacious office park, accessed by tree-lined roads. An outside sign marks the presence of "Imperial," while a smaller sign on a door leading into the building reads "Imperial Holdings." Asked about the FBI raid, some of the building's occupants declined to answer questions. In its statement issued late Tuesday, Sept. 27, Imperial said the raid was apparently related to its life insurance business. Life settlement compa nies such as Imperial buy insurance policies from people for a fraction of their value and then collect in full when the person dies. The Boca Raton Police Department, which took part in the operation, said it arrived at Imperial's offices shortly after 9 a.m. Sept. 27. The FBI office in Miami referred questions on the timing of the raid to the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Hampshire, which apparently issued the search warrant for the raid.Boca nancial rm raided by FBI; Stock Exchange halts tradingQ.

The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Humans the Best Part of Real SteelWould you play good money to watch robots box? That question bugged me when contemplating whether or not to go to an advance screening of Real Steel. Since the screening was convenient ly at the Cinemark Palace in Boca Raton, I thought OK, Ill bite. As it turns out, I enjoyed Real Steel more than expected. I am no fan of boxing or the Transformers movie series about giant fighting robots, but Real Steel has a more human component to it, thanks largely to the performances of Hugh Jackman as a has-been boxer and fight promoter and Dakota Goyo as his 11-year-old adoring son. The screenplay was inspired by a 1956 short sto ry by noted science-fiction writer Richard Matheson. Charlie Kenton (Jack man) is in desperate straits when we meet him. He has borrowed money Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo with Atom in Real Steelfrom everyone he knows, including shady charac ters who vow to extract their pound of flesh. His ex-wife (Hope Davis) has married a rich, obnoxious older guy (James Rebhorn) who plans an extended honeymoon in Europe. That leaves Max Kenton, (Goyo) in the lurch. The older man takes Char lie in confidence and says he will give him $50,000 up front and another $50,000 on their return if Charlie will take Max, the son he abandoned not long after his birth, off their hands. In a plot that much resembles The Champ, father and son build a relationship while Charlie tries to rebuild his career with an obsolete old robot called Atom. The computer-generated robot action looks pretty convincing, but it is the father and son stuff that gives this otherwise silly movie its warm ap -Continued on page 26peal.

This is the most amazing thing about -50, inspired loosely by screenwriter Will Reisers reallife battle with the deadly disease. Reiser was just 24 when a large, cancerous sarcoma tumor was discovered in his back. Helping him cope with this crisis was Reisers good friend Seth Rogen. Both Reiser and Rogen are funny guys by nature, and when this diagnosis came in 2003, they were both writers for Sacha Baron Cohens satirical television show Da Ali G Show.

These were just a few of the things we had to deal with when planning Habitat for Humanity's 20th birthday celebra tion. Luckily though, everything worked out just perfectly for the Boca Festival Days event that was sponsored by Zavee. As everyone knows, Boca Festival Days is a wonderful month of events coordinated by the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce that takes place every August, or sometimes in September in this case. As the meteorologists discussed the possible rainstorms that could drench our event on its original date, we debated whether to cancel or not. Since Ovenella, the great new Italian restaurant in Boca was graciously hosting the event, and needed a decision pronto, we erred on the side of caution and canceled. On the day the event was originally set, the weather did not seem too bad, that is, just until happy hour when the sky opened with a dark deluge. Whew! We made the right call! With everyone's busy schedules, finding a new date proved to take a bit of work. But finally, we could get ready to party. On the morning of the event, I got a call from Zavee's marketing director, Ru he had got ten donated from Cakes by Gina in Wellington collapsed in transit. We had a few backup plans but the intrepid Zavee team called bakeries all over town to see if someone could help us rebuild our house of icing and angel food cake. Thanks to their amazing persistence the Publix in Lighthouse Point gra ciously agreed to get our cake in edible form once again! Then I got a call that the photographer had broken her foot! Ouch. But fortunately we had backup----Habitat for Humanity's Linda Gove's middle school-aged daughter volunteered to play paparazzi for the night. She has a job anytime she wants it! A wonderful crowd of guests came out to support this amazing organization on its rescheduled date. They enjoyed delectable food and drinks, danced, ate birthday cake, and learned how they could save money and support their favorite charities with Zavee.com. "We were honored by the community's response to our two de cades of service," said Mike Campbell, executive director of Habitat for Humanity, SBC. "Everyone had a wonderful time, and the celebration highlighted the incred ible work Habitat has accomplished in the Del ray/Boca area." "Habitat for Humanity is an outstanding organization," said Ron Stack, COO of Zavee. "We were proud to be the event's lead sponsor and to have them as one of our 60 causes that are eligible to receive contri butions from us.

Seven years later the idea has come into fruition under the sensitive direc tion of Jonathan Levine. Likeable Joseph GordonLeavitt plays Will Reisers alter ego, Adam and Seth Rogen basically plays himself under a different name, Kyle. At age 27 the otherwise healthy Adam is diagnosed with a cancerous sarcoma tumor in his spine. If diagnosed early enough, sarcoma is treatable with surgery, but because of the location of the tumor and the danger of the surgery, Adam is given only a 5050 chance of survival. A cancer diagnosis is awkward no matter how you look at it. If you are the person diagnosed, once you get over the initial shock and sorrow, a fear of the unknown sets in. You feel almost embarrassed to admit to your fragility. For friends and family there is a tendency to overcompensate with sympa thy and/or total avoidance of the matter at hand. All these things factor into Adams story. He undergoes the delicate surgery and his friend Kyle is grossed out when he has to change his dressing. Adams girlfriend Ra chel (Bryce Dallas Howard) seems ill-equipped to deal with the seriousness of Adams condition. Adam is assigned Ka tie (Anna Kendrick), a therapist just out of med school. Adam is only her third patient. Adams mother Diane (Angelica Houston) goes into full denial mode. It is only through a support group of fellow cancer patients that Adam gets some real understanding and tolerance. I know none of this sounds very funny, but somehow it is. His head shaved as a consequence of chemotherapy, Joseph Gordon-Leavitt is fearless and engaging. Seth Rogen, who is also producer of this film, puts his money and talent where his heart is as Kyle. Anna Kendrick is absolutely adorable as the wide-eyed, still innocent therapist. Perhaps I am biased. It was almost eight years ago that I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I opted for the radical solution of surgery. Sometimes you have to pay a steep price to keep on living. Through tears and laughter, -50 beautifully illustrates that process. Three and a half stars.

Groundbreakings were held barely a year ago for the Innovation Village and the new 30,000 seat sta dium. The stadium is scheduled to open with the first home football game of the season on Oct. 15. The tall residential buildings around the new arena are part of the Innovation Village, which was completed just in time for students arriving for the new aca demic year to move in. FAUs department of housing and residential life, part of the Division of Student Affairs, recently hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for phase one of the Innovation Village Apartments, These units were marketed exclusively to FAUs upper division undergraduate and graduate students for occupancy at the start of the fall semester. The completion of Innovation Village Apartments brings us closer to transforming the Boca Raton campus into a traditional university campus, said Dr. Charles Brown, senior vice president of student affairs. This will create a new excitement and enthusiasm for our student, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the university. The new housing facilities, football stadium, recreation and fitness center and alumni center will become a new livinglearning and social center for the FAU family. Phase one of the Innovation Village Apartments included the construction of two apartment buildings, totaling 489,000 square feet and providing 1,216 beds for upper-division and graduate students. Phase ones accelerated construction began in March 2010, with the first students moving in late in July 2011.

The Innovation Village Apartments are on track to qualify for silver level certification in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system of the U.S. Green Building Council. The Innovation Village Apartments were developed by a joint venture of Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions and Capstone Development Corporation. They were designed by PGAL (Pierce Goodwin Alexander & Linville) Architects and constructed by Balfour Beatty Construction. Balfour Beatty Capital invested $3.4 million in tax-exempt bonds that finance the project. A joint venture of Capstone On-Campus Management and Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions, led by Capstone On-Campus Management, will oversee with FAU the Innovation Village Apartments, as well as the existing student housing facilities on FAUs Boca Raton campus.

Siegel, P.A, is an attorney who practices Estate Planning, Asset Protection, Elder Law, Trust Administration and Probate. Mr. Siegel, an author and frequent guest speaker, | 1200 North Federal Hwy, Suite 200, Boca Raton, FL 33432 | (855) FLA-ESTATE By Barry Siegel Protecting AssetsTom and Kathy thought they had their estate planning in order as they approached retirement. A few years ago, they worked with an attorney who created living trusts for them as well as other estate related documents. When they purchased a second home in Wisconsin, they didnt give a thought to revisiting the plan. On their deaths, assets passed nicely with a minimum of complication and expense. All except the property in Wisconsin. Because the property was not funded into their living trust, the real estate had to go through probate, which meant significant additional expense and inconvenience to the family. Most of our clients want to make sure that their plans take advantage of all lifetime benefits and also make estate administration as simple and cost effective as possible. The best way to do this that is to make sure you keep your plan and your documents up to date. Failure to keep things current can be very costly. Estate planning is more than just planning for death. Lets take a look at some of the life changing events that might cause you to schedule a review. A MOVE TO ANOTHER STATE For many clients, a move to a new state should trigger an estate plan review. Will you be a perma nent resident? Will you be part time? The answer to these questions and others will determine your legal residency and control such things as state income tax, inheritance tax and other issues about administra tion of your affairs if you become disabled or die. The rights of your spouse and the rights of your children may change along with a change of address. Assets may need to be retitled in order to make sure your wishes are accomplished. Important benefits may be lost as a result of a move to a new state. DIVORCE OR REMARRIAGE Most state laws have provisions for cancelling out bequests to ex-spouses after divorce. But that may just be the beginning. It is also important to check beneficiary designations on other assets such as: Life insurance, both individual and group policies, Retirement plans like IRAs, 401(K)s, and Annuities Divorce also means the loss of important tax deferral advantages which could mean a significant estate tax due at death. This is also a good time to re-think the overall distribution scheme of an estate plan. All good reasons for a review. Of course, re-marriage triggers a similar need for review and updating. CHANGE IN EMPLOYMENT Many highly paid executives need to pay close attention to updating their estate plan when chang ing jobs. This is because new employment may bring new benefits, such as incentive plans, deferred compensation, restricted stock or stock option grants, and new life insurance. All of which should trigger a review of the existing estate plan. BUYING A SECOND HOME Buying a second home is another cause for an update. How you own the property (in trust, in an LLC, etc.) can affect issues such as state taxes and transfer costs. Liability protection may also be at issue if the property will be rented out from time to time. Also, thinking about how to pass the property to heirs becomes important. Do your children want to keep the second home after you die? If so, how will they deal with maintenance costs, repairs and use? Will you set up a separate fund? Will all of your children be able to afford their share of the costs? All of these issues can be explored and dealt with in a review. CHANGES IN THE TA X CODE For larger estates, a changing tax code is rea son enough to keep your plan updated. Over the last 10-12 years, there have been numerous tax chang es.

Columnists The Boca Raton Tribune Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law. By Mike Gora Flim FlamCathy Lynn Grossman, in USA TODAY wrote a revealing article about tra ditional beliefs and cultural trends today. It seems more Americans are tailoring religion to fit their needs and dare I say wants. She quotes religion statistics expert George Barna who says America is headed for million people with 310 religions. We are a designer society. We want everything customized to our personal needsour clothing, our food, our education, he says. Now it is our religion, Grossman observes. While this looks like a relatively new trend, designing religion the way we like it is really old stuff. At least four times in the book of Judges, the phrase everybody did that which was right in their own eyes is used. A casual perusal of both the Old and New Testaments reveals people have always wanted to manufacture, update or make relevant traditional orthodox beliefs. Charles Haddon Spurgeon wrote in 1887 The extent to which sheer frivolity and utterly inane amusement have been carried in connection with some places of worship would almost exceed belief. Religion, like politics, power, industry, civic duty and a thousand other values has been abused, misrepresented and distorted. The only way we can avoid being duped by their cha rade or inadvertently become perpetrators of our own farce is to have wellfounded, deep convictions based on truth not opinions and hearsay. Time-tested values and cross-cultural truths dont need to be updated to be more chic like some fashion trend. The issue is practicing what we know is right. Someone wisely wrote, Its not the parts of the Bible I dont understand... it the parts I do understand that give me the most problems. Years ago I wrote in my Bible in periods of unsettled faith, skepticism and mere curious speculation abound in religious matters. Teachers of all kinds swarm like flies in Egypt. The demand creates the supply. The hearers invite and shape their own preachers. If the people desire a calf to worship, a minister can be found to form it. In this fast-paced, media-dominated, information-saturated society we are forced to live in, it is essential that we learn to see through the smoke and separate sensationalism from substance. In the first century, it was said that the philosophers of Athens spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing. (Acts 17.21) We, like men of old, can become obsessed with the latest thing. We really dont need some new thing; what we need is the real thing. God and Religion My WayPastor Sandy Huntsman, Boca Glades Baptist Church, www.bocaglades.org By Pr. Sandy Huntsman Q: My ex-husband and his new wife have put to gether a plan to cut down the alimony and child support that I was awarded by a judge in Delray two years ago. He has filed a Petition for Modification, which is now pending. My combined alimony and child support award was for a total of $4,500 a month. For many years, my husband had operated his own businesses. He prided himself on being an entrepreneur. He would start a new business, grow it and sell it, or would take over a failing business, fix it and sell it after running it for a while. He met his new wife while we were married. He was between business es, and was negotiating to buy her business. He wound up buying more than just the business. After our divorce, he went to work for her com pany at little more than minimum wage, with an office job. They deny it, but he is really running the place and fixing her business, as he would have had he bought it. Now his income, instead of being, net, $15,000 a month is, net, $5,000 a month. The new support he wants the judge to award is a total of $1,000 a month. I am a teacher. I could not afford to keep my house and raise the two kids on my salary plus that support. What do you think the judge will do? A The judge will have to apply the rules governing modification of judgments and imputation of income. For a downward modification, the judge has to find that the change in financial circumstances was permanent, involuntary and significant. Here it appears that if your former husband voluntarily sold a business that he was running before the divorce, and now makes substantially less. His history of buying and selling businesses may give the judge the ba sis to find that his change was not permanent. The court might deny the change on the modification law alone. Even if it does not, the court could impute income to your Ex. That means, ignore his present, lower, income and base the support requirements on an artificial number based upon his past track record. The law on the impu tation of income is as full of potholes as any we deal with on a regular basis. Appellate decisions are not as consistent as lawyers would like. Often a denial of imputation is based upon lack of proof of specific job availability. On the other hand, our local appellate court recently ruled that income should have been imputed to a man in a similar situation to your former husband based upon his previous work experience in successfully running two companies, even though there was no proof of a specific opportunity. The personal relationship between your Ex and his new boss, and proof that his job duties usually pay much more, may not pass the judges smell test, and lead to your keeping the support at current Michael H.

Lynn Universitys mens soccer team saw its seven-game winning streak come to an end Saturday night following a 1-0 loss to Tampa. The Fighting Knights allowed just their fourth goal of the season in dropping to 7-2 overall and 3-1 in the Sunshine State Conference. A dominating 15 minutes to start the match gave LU fans in attendance hope of a victory. The Blue & White didnt allow UT (16-1, 1-2 SSC) into their territory for the opening eight minutes and then did not allow a possession inside their 20-yard box until the 15th minute of play. Momentum swung, though, in the 23rd minute when a pair of long throwins by the Spartans were not cleared, leading to a Tampa corner kick. Karl Swan the lifted the ensuing cross into the middle of the box but keeper Matt DiCerbos couldnt complete the punch stop allowing Dominic Cutrofello an easy header into an open net. Lynn didnt get many opportunities to score until midway into the second half. Harald Gracholski, A.B. Magnusson and Roberto Cadihle all had shots within 20-yards but all attempts were turned away. Lafayette, LA The Florida Atlantic University football team lost its Sun Belt Conference opener on a game-ending 26-yard field goal 37-34 at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday evening. The Owls battled from a 14-point fourthquarter deficit to tie the game with 1:48 remaining. The Ragin' Cajuns drove 65 yards on 10 plays to set up Brett Baer's game-winning kick. FAU falls to 0-4 on the season and 0-1 in conference play while Louisiana-Lafayette improved to 2-0 in SBC play and 4-1 overall. The Owls trailed 34-20 in the fourth quarter before redshirt junior quarterbackGraham Wilbert connected with redshirt sophomore tight end Nexon Dorvilus for a five-yard touchdown pass. The pass was one of three on the evening and brought FAU within seven with 5:41 remaining. After the defense forced a three-and-out, Wilbert led a five-play 40-yard drive to tie the game. FAU scored 17 straight points to take a 10-point led, 17-7, with 9:19 left in the first half after a sixyard scamper by redshirt senior running back Alfred Morris. The Owls also had a 26-yard field goal from Vinny Zaccario and a 24yard touchdown reception from redshirt senior tight endDarian Williams. ULL responded with two touchdowns to take a 21-17 lead. Zaccario connected on a 36-yard field goal as the first half expired with the host leading 21-20. In the third quarter, Baer was successful on a 47-yard field goal attempt before ULL's Alonzo Harris found the end zone on a nine-yard rush. The touchdown put Ragin' Cajuns ahead 31-20 with 12:58 left in the contest. Baer would add his second field goal of the night, a 46-yarder at the 7:43 mark. That's when the Owls made their fourth-quarter rally to even the game. Wilbert ended the game 20-of-38 with a ca reer-best three touchdown passes. He also threw for 219 yards in the loss.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Chad BeattieBOCA RATON, Fla. Despite picking up its second loss of the season, Lynn Universitys 16thranked mens soccer team still boasts a 7-2 overall record and 3-1 mark in the Sunshine State Conference. Unfortunately, the road ahead doesnt get any easier with a pair of na tionally-ranked opponents on the schedule this week for the Fighting Knights. First up for the Blue & White is No. 10 Flagler (53-1) on Tuesday, October 4, in St. Augustine, Fla., followed by a showdown at No. 24 Saint Leo (5-30, 1-2-0 SSC) on Saturday, October 8. Both games are scheduled to kick-off at 7 p.m. A loss this past Saturday should not overshadow the Knights 3-0 victory over Nova Southeastern earlier in the week. Michael Kutscher, Heiko Eberhardt and Youcef Oudjidane all scored for LU as it recorded its 25th win against the Sharks, the most against any opponent. The Saints of Flagler started the season strong but dropped two consecutive matches last week. Lynns Men Soccer Faces Long Week AheadSince first meeting in 1986, Lynn has owned Flagler to the tune of a 16-0-1 alltime mark. Mack Hough paces the Saints offense with eight goals and 17 points while their defense has allowed nine goals in nine matches. Saint Leo has also dropped two straight games, falling 2-0 at Eckerd and then 3-0 at West Florida. The Lions host Palm Beach Atlantic before welcoming the Fighting Knights to St. Leo, Fla. Joel Purkiss, Aaron Gendreau and Eric Herrera have combined for 14 of the teams 22 goals and 10 of 14 assists. Saint Leo is 5-15 all-time against Lynn. By: Pedro HeizerTying the largest margin of victory in the NASL this season, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers dominated FC Edmonton Saturday night at Lock hart Stadium in front of 3,378 Striker Likers in fashion. Thanks to the dynamic duo of Abe Thompson and Brian Shriver, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers are through to the NASL semi-finals. Abe Thompson had a hat-trick (second of his career), while Brian Shriver scored twice to com plete the 5-0 rout of FC Edmonton. To be honest I expected us to be good tonight, but I didnt expect to win that way, said Strikers head coach Daryl Shore. Edmontons a good team and I think the second goal deflated them. Fort Lauderdale had the foot on the gas from the beginning of the game but simply couldnt socre. But, right before the end of the half, Brian Shriver received a deflected pass and took on defender Paul Hamilton. After a single touch on his left foot, he slotted it home near post for the seventh of his season. "I got the ball on my left foot, my weaker foot, and it rolled right in," Shriver said. "This is the best we've played this year. We created chances and never gave up." Abe Thompsons first goal came 26 seconds after the second half started. Thompson scored as he redirected a cross from Lance Laing. He beat the FC Edmonton defense to the far post and buried the cross. The entire game the Strikers piled on the pressure on the FC Edmonton defense, pushing the ball forward. In the 54th min ute, following a long ball, Mike Palacio stumbled, collected the pass, and fed Shriver, who was through on goal. Shriver kept his cool and finished far post on his left foot again, making it eight on the season. Eight minutes later, the FC Edmonton defense was left open again for a counter-attack, and Scott Gordon capitalized on it. All alone on the right, Gordon fed the ball into the middle, where Thompson headed the ball past goalkeeper Rein Baart. "We talked about fin ishing our chances in the second half and we did," Thompson said. "The goal before halftime was big because they go in demoralized and we go in with confidence. Coming out in the second we picked up right where we left off." The guys had a great week of training and it showed that they brought their success in training to the field, said Shore. Thompson finished off his hat-trick with a wellplaced shot into the far post corner in the 77th minute to finish the fivegoal rout. The Strikers outshot Edmonton 18-7, includ ing 13-1 with shots on goal.Strikers Rout FC Edmonton 5-0 in Playo OpenerPhoto & Story by Orlando GreenwaldWest Boca Raton defeats Olympic Heights 1725, 25-23, 25-18, 25-19 The West Boca Girls Volleyball team took on the Lions of Olympic Heights Tuesday night.

It is important to follow these ten simple rules so that your golf game will improve and you get the most out of your ability. Golf is a very challenging game and even professionals find it very frustrating. People put far too much pressure on themselves about their technique when there are playing. However if people focused more on these top ten golf tips they will improve their game. 1. Correct equipment It is important to be using the correct equipment. It does not matter how expensive the equipment is or the brand name however it must be the correct fit and suitable for you. When purchasing equipment it is important to make sure you have the correct length of clubs. Measure your height with your shoes on. By having the correct clubs it can guarantee club speed and control. If you are over 6 foot then your clubs should be one inch longer than standard. If you are below 5 foot 6 inches you will need one inch shorter than standard. By having the wrong length clubs it makes it more difficult to hit balls from the middle of the club. The correct shaft is important as the club could be too or stiff. Also it is important to make the correct decision between graphite and steel. When choosing you equipment you need to make the decision between graphite or steel. This depends on the build and standard you are at. Consult your local professional for advice. 2. Warm up Before you play any sport a warm up is essential however golf is no exception. Many people do not believe that golf is a physical activity and does not need a warm up. It is still important to warm up for a round of golf as injuries can occur if you do not do so. Before playing it is important to stretch your back, shoulders, legs and neck as they are more prone to injury. Not only should you stretch to prevent injury but to enhance performance. By doing the correct warm up it can help with a larger shoulder turn and prevent stiffness. Your game could improve by one or two strokes just by warming up. 3. Fitness Golf is a physical activity much to the disbelief of most people. You must be fit in order to walk the course let alone play difficult shots and concentrate. Golf does not require you to go on long runs and go to the gym everyday however some fitness is essential. This is including diet; it is essential to eat healthy before, during and after playing golf. Fitness is vital as it helps with concentrations levels so staying healthy is important. It is recommended that you do some exercise three times a week to help with golf performance. 4. Practice You cannot expect to walk on to a course and shoot the course record without practicing. Practice is vital to improving golf and to play the best of your potential. It is important to practice as it helps with muscle memory therefore performing good shots time after time on the course. Well that is the theory! Before playing on a course it is essential to have a good idea of the technique. For the average player the most amount of time needed for prac tice is twice a week. It is important to find the balance between practic ing and playing. The best thing to do is to play on a golf course as much as possible as it is there you need to score, not just on the driving range.

By: Matt PinedaIts beyond the dog days of summer, and now Fall is upon us. But the NBA is still in a lockout and training camps have been postponed. It seemed the NFL was able to end their lockout fairly quickly, but the NBA seems to be on a different track. Players and Owners arent budg ing much and are sticking to their principles in what they think is best. So what are the three main issues in the NBA lockout? Are there any ways to handle these that seem to be fair for both sides? Lets discuss: 1. Hard Cap / Soft Cap Each sport is very different. In the MLB there is no salary cap at all, and thus each team can spend as much as they please for their players. While in the NBA, in the previous CBA, they had a soft salary cap. What this meant was that there was a salary cap at which teams were allowed to spend on players. If they hit the salary cap, they could only add players at the veterans minimum, unless they had the mid-level exception to offer. So if you spend at or below their salary cap there is no penalty for you. If you spend over the salary cap, every dollar you spend over, you must be that much to the NBA. Its called the Luxury tax. So if the salary cap is 60 million and you spend 63 million, you are essentially paying 66 million. The Luxury tax is then divided to the other teams in the NBA not over the salary cap. This works well for players because it allows for more money to be spent. It also works well for owners who have lots of money. Richer owners are able to pay up to 25 30 million over the salary cap! Thats a lot of money! The owners want a hard cap. The reason, among many, would be to put everyone on an even playing field. This would create some equality among teams, and prevent super teams from forming. The solution? I suggest creating a soft salary cap that has an additional hard cap over it. This creates teams willing to keep from the luxury tax but prevents richer owners from exceeding ceilings in spending other people cant get close to. 2. Contract Lengths / Guaranteed Money Owners want a way out of their stupid decisions. Example A: Rashard Lewis is slated to be the second highest paid player in the NBA at $22.15 million next season. Sometimes owners pay too much for players, and their complaining the average of a $5 million medium salary is too much for sports. They want the maximum contract length to be reduced from 7 years, and they want a way to not fork out all the money of a contract if a player doesnt live up to his worth. Players want no part of this as you are talking about giving up money and stability. Who would want that? The Solution? The NBA does need to reduce the maximum years from 7 to 4-5. This is just more realistic. Since players sala ries usually go up about a significant percentage each season, a shorter contract should help a player keep his worth. However, no one is forcing the owners to sign these players to these contracts. You can sign a player to any worth of contract (relatively speaking). So there needs to be more responsibility shown by owners in giving Darko Milicic a $5 million salary. But there does need to be some safeguards that players must meet to earn that salary. Its not fair for teams to give a salary and a player just stop performing and they must pay it (Smush Parker!). These are all small details. Lets hope the lockout ends soon and owners and players figure out a deal!Labor Talks: 2 Main Issues in NBA Lockout

Glades Central 23 Boca Raton (1-3) 7In the first game after firing head coach Keith Byars, one thing is for sure, Byars was not the problem.

Their offense managed 78 passing yards and negative one rushing yards. At the beginning of the season, the Bobcats looked poised to make the playoffs, but now it looks like in November their student-athletes can once again focus in school.Spanish River (3-2) 14, Atlantic High 70After a hot three game winning streak start, the Sharks are looking more like the old Spanish River. Lossing two games in a row, the Sharks look to bounce back next week. But, for this to happen, their defense needs to step up. Giving up five touchdowns will not help you as you look for Ws.Benjamin 16 Pope John Paul II (1-4) 15The Eagles were on the short end of yet another nail-biter last week. The Eagles lost by only one point and their offence looked good.

Look for the Eagles to bounce back in the next game.St. Andrews (2-2-1) 7 Coral Springs Charter 16This was simply a bad week for Boca Raton high school football.
