C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor My wife and I have been living in South Florida for some 11 years now. But last weekends Meet Me on the Promenade event downtown was perhaps the biggest and best show we have ever seen in Boca Raton. Not only that, it was just what the city needed to kick-start the ongoing revival of downtown Boca as an entity unto itself, not a reworked At lantic Avenue or a replica of CityPlace. My wife and I remember our tourist days when wed visit relatives and friends here. Downtown Boca was always a must-stop. There were lots of shops my wife loved many of which, unfortunately, are gone now. But every time we traveled here, wed walk up and down Palmetto Park Road, and drop in at Royal Palm Place, which was known at the time as Royal Palm Plaza. While working in the news trade, I have seen how hard city officials have tried to make the downtown retail center work again to work as a team of merchants bent on gathering in custom ers to see the unique and unusual wares in some of the stores. Meet Me on the Promenade showed what a lot of effort and a lot of planning can do. Obviously, its not something the city can pull off every few weeks. But it does offer options for smaller activi ties to continue to bring people to the citys retail district. After talking to Mayor Susan Whelchel and Community Redevelopment Agency Chairwom an Constance Scott, I realized how successful the event was. I happened to catch only the events on the south end of the city. But Royal Palm Place was packed. We were lucky to find a good parking place. But everything was crowded the shops, the restaurants, even Yaacov Hellers sculpture garden was lined with paintings for an art auction that took place Friday night and again Saturday noon. And plenty of people attended. Antique and clas sic cars lined the street stretching off to the pedestrian promenade, and they were beautiful. I was talking to Dave Siegel, owner of a coral-colored 1957 Thunderbird. What a beauty! And so many other cars a 1941 sunyellow Willys caught our eyes. A couple of soupedup Camaros shone in the mid-day sun. This was the perfect time of year to have such an event. Its cool, so the beach doesnt beckon like it does in the summer. The stroll in the cool air was enjoyable rather than arduous. Congratulations to all who put this together, a group led by Jon and Bonnie Kaye of Kaye Communications and all the merchants and city staffers. Thanks also to the 75 sponsors including the Boca Raton Tribune. Were looking forward to the next similar event. TROLLEY TIME Id be remiss if I didnt mention the wonderful evening my wife and I spent in downtown Boca, thanks to the Boca Historical Society and its Tastes, Toasts and Trolleys event. We havent been to the Boca Raton Resort & Club in a while, so it was a bit like going home again. We enjoyed hors doeuvres in the area on the other side of the courtyard where we were married. Coincidentally, Commissioner Steven Abrams was along for the ride and he is the one who conducted that ceremony. The trolleys took us to some great spots Maxs Grille, the Biergarten and the Rustic Cellar and we spent time in the restored railroad cars at the de Hoernle Train Pavilion (I could have stayed there all night!) This was a first for the historical group, but I hope it wont be the last. PICTURES BY RAY I stopped by the Community Center at 150 Crawford Blvd. on my way to the office today. And as I walked in, I was surprised to see an exhibit of editorial cartoons drawn by our own Ray Russotto hanging on the walls. Talk about bringing back memories. The Tribune is the second newspaper we have shared and have become close friends. I dont know if the display has been publicized, but you have to see it. Ray is a wonderful artist and caricaturist. It will be well worth the trip to see the work of this talented friend.Meet Me on the Promenade was just what the city neededTo the Editor I just wanted to thank the Boca Raton Tribune for supporting Caldwell Theatre with reviews and articles about our activities. Thank you also for letting the public know about our effort to raise $100,000. Thank you for your continued support of Caldwell Theatre Company.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By 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 The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL Make Forgiveness a Priority! Several individuals unnecessarily endure hardships in life on ac count of their unforgiving spirit. Some cannot perform certain tasks, others become chronically ill, and all who display an attitude of non-forgiveness make very little progress in life; the heavy loads of resentment they drag along, prevent them from making necessary, genuine advances! Life hurls its indignities on human creatures all the time. People are often mean; even relatives act that way with some family members. Yet, it is not through retalia tion, nor getting even, or fighting back, that any unpleasant situation will reach a satisfactory resolution. Quite the contrary is what frequently occurs, and issues that couldve been more easily concluded tend to increase their hold on us indefinitely! Most of the time we dont need to wait until forgiveness is sought. On our own we can discard such unnecessary burden. After all, there is no moment when is it impossible to forgive another, regardless of how long you may have already waited for getting things right! In the words of Dr. Charles Allen, forgiveness cannot flow toward you unless it flows from you. Human experience repeatedly confirms that every human will be wronged by others in the course of ones lifetime. Yet, a far greater wrong is not to attempt to forgive the wrong done to us, because nothing is gained from a prolonged unwillingness to forgive, or from delayed, endless conflicts. These lead nowhere! On the other hand, by extending forgiveness to others, we defuse the time bomb of our repressed resentments, as author James R. Bjorge wrote. This is the most practical thing to do. Moreover, this is also the best action to follow! Once I saw a message on a T-shirt which stated: Man will doubt what you say, but believe what you do. A good deed in this context is that you can indicate that an unpleasant deed from another towards you has been forgiven. Nevertheless, it is only when that is tangibly demonstrated that its true validity is realized! In the words of the late Lewis B. Smedes, forgiveness does not deny the past; it only creates a new future. And that means a future free from previous hostilities! Therefore, make forgiveness a priority in life! You shall inevitably be hurt, but dont hold grudges, never live in animosity, avoid bitterness, for it would unnecessarily poison your life and the lives of others near you.Since we began publishing the Boca Raton Tribune, we have never backed off from trying new things. Thankfully, most of them have been successful. So it is with great pride that I introduce a new advertising system a procedure that allows readers, businesses and anyone interested in purchasing an ad to do so on their own, without any need to speak to an individual. Visit our website, www. bocaratontribune. Youll find boxes that invite you to buy an ad. You can pull up a list of prices to the ad based on size and the dura tion of the ad. Then write it yourself and it will appear. You can click on the banner, create and upload your advertisement. People can place the ad in various areas, or they can select a section they would like to sponsor. You can write up your ad to sponsor the sports section, the community section, the life and style section or whatever suits your fancy. We at the Tribune think this is a step ahead in providing the public with an opportunity to be creative in their own right. We have always said this newspaper is your closest neighbor, and this is just one more way of showing it. We have always aimed to please, and if we can provide a system that allows you to place an ad whenever and wherever you want, and you can determine the price at the click of a mouse, we think thats just great. We hope to see a lot of participation. Dont be the last person on your block to take part in this special program. SUPPORT WAS KEY WORD FOR MEET ME ON THE PROMENADE As my family and I walked around downtown Boca at Meet Me on the Promenade this past weekend, a couple of thoughts came to my mind. One was support. Its said that about 75 sponsors came forward to back this celebration of the new pedestrian walkway on Palmetto Park Road. This shows how much support there is among downtown merchants for a continuing type of activity or series of events aimed at bring ing people downtown, not just to drive through, but to buy. The Boca Raton Tribune was just one of many sponsors who lent our backing to this event. We realized early on that what this city needs particularly for its center city is support. Merchantrs needed to work together, and with a leadership team like the one provided by Jon and Bonnie Kaye of Kaye Communication. They set the stage, and just about every merchant jumped on the bandwagon. Just about every store had some special going on, something of interest to attract in everyone in the family. There was also entertainment, gourmet food trucks and auctions Friday evening and Saturday noontime at Yaacov Hellers Gallery 22 Beyond that, I felt a sense of giving. To enjoy the festive atmosphere, people didnt mind opening their wallets and spending a few bucks for something they might not ever get a chance to try again. A little store in Royal Palm Place was giving out health food bars. A woman from Lemongrass was carving vegetables and fruits into unique designs. Classic cars lined the street from Royal Palm Place nearly to Palmetto Park Road. This is the same kind of support and feeling of giving that the Boca Ra ton Tribune has supported throughout its existence. In these tough economic times, its not that people do not have money, its the fact that they hold onto their money, fearing something disastrous will happen and they will left without a penny. I dont think that will ever happen. But also, I am optimistic that politicians in Washington are beginning to realize that they cant get away with the nastiness they have foisted on the American public of late. No, I think people have money and are longing to spend it without fear of losing it all. We encourage you to spend it here at the Boca Raton Tribune, or another business which offers good deals for good pric es. Every business today needs your support and the Boca Raton Tribune is one of them. We hope to see this sense of support replace the downtrodden and depressed feeling we have felt the past couple of years.Want to buy an ad in the Tribune? You can do it yourself

Historic tiles salvaged from the Giles House (La Vieille Maison) 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.

This grant will reduce the cost of camp operations. HBTS knows that children are vulnerable when they experience the loss of a loved one. In an attempt to insulate children from pain, adults often exclude them from discussions about death, dying, and grief. However, lack of understanding and limited coping skills leave children with unresolved grief that is sometimes carried well into adulthood. Camp Good Grief exemplifies our commitment to healing heart, mind, and spirit, said Paula J. Alderson, president and CEO of HBTS. The next camp session is scheduled for November 11 13. To learn more, or to register a child, contact Hospice by the Seas Bereavement Department at (561) 416-5059 or bereavement@hbts.org. For more than 16 years, Camp Good Grief has provided a safe emotional outlet and healing environment for grieving children. Under the compassionate guidance of clinical staff and trained volunteers, campers participate in therapeutic ac tivities designed to help them interpret and cope with their emotions. Additional activities, such as sports, dancing, games, and swimming give them time to make new friends. The weekend culminates with a unique memorial service during which campers honor departed loved ones around a bonfire. We are delighted to support Camp Good Grief Childrens Bereavement Program at Hospice by the Sea, said Jan Savarick, president of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation. This wonderful program has such a positive impact on the emotional health and wellbeing of the participating children, and helps us fulfill our mission of building a strong and healthy community. The BRRH Founda tions Community Outreach Grant Program promotes philanthropy and helps develop solid relationships that uphold the hospitals mission of providing quality medical care. Hospice by the Sea, Inc. has provided hospice services, home health care, palliative care services, bereavement counseling, complementary therapies and caregiver support to more than 100,000 pa tients and families in Palm Beach and Broward counties.

With others likely, the Palm Beach County Health Department is raising the status level for mosquito borne-illness to an alert. We have been closely monitoring the county for the possibility of Dengue. The second case is good evidence that it is becoming established here and all should be on the alert to prevent mosquitoes from biting, said Health Department Director Alina Alonso, MD as she raised the status of the disease from an advisory to an alert. Dengue is carried by a mosquito that leaves its eggs generally around a home or building in standing water as small as a thimble. The alert encourages all to drain any and all standing water from around the home or business. All are also advised to cover their windows with screens in good condition, use air conditioning when possible and cover themselves with lightweight long sleeve clothing and pants. Insect repellants containing DEET or picaridin are also effective in preventing mosquitoes from biting. Classic dengue fever is characterized by acute onset of high fever, 3-14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito. Patients develop high fevers, severe headache, muscle and bone aches, rash, severe pain behind the eyes and mild bleeding from the nose or gums. Acute symptoms, when present, usually last about 1 week, but weakness, malaise, and anorexia may persist for several weeks. Treatment emphasizes relief of symptoms, avoiding aspirin and other non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and drinking plenty of fluids. Severe manifestations (e.g., dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome) are rare but may be fatal. Mosquito control is continuing its abatement program throughout the county. Persons experiencing symptoms should see their medical provider or, if severe, visit the nearest hospital or clinic. The Palm Beach County Health Department has six Health Centers located from Delray Beach to Jupiter and west in Belle Glade. Further information can be obtained by visiting the Department of Health Website at www.doh.state. fl.us or the Palm Beach County Health Department site at www.pbchd. com.Second Dengue Fever case prompts county-wide alertPalm Tran, Palm Beach Countys public transportation agency, broke ridership records in fiscal year 2011, with a total annual ridership of 11,124,904.

The man told the woman he was going to send her a check for $2,585 dollars, which would cover one weeks salary of $500 and asked that she deposit the check and send the difference back to him through Western Union. The woman deposited the check into her bank ac count on October 7th and said on October 9th the money showed up in her account when the check was cleared. Police said the woman then sent the money, $1,980 via Western Union to the man who placed the ad.

Boca Police Safety TipBoca Raton Police BlotterThe Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL BOCA RATON Last year, the popular Florida Stage went out of business for lack of money after moving from its former venue in Manalapan to the Kravis Center. Now, it appears Boca Ratons venerable Caldwell Theatre could face the final curtain unless its raises $100,000, said Clive Cholerton, the Caldwells artistic director, in an email sent to patrons of the local production company. As you know, the economy has taken a large toll on the arts and Caldwell Theatre Company is no exception, said Cholerton. We are at a crucial point where we must raise $100,000. Ironically, the plea comes just a few years after the Caldwell achieved a dream of moving into its own building. Caldwell is housed in the Count de Hoernle Building on North Federal Highway, just north of the crumbling Levitz Plaza, which had been its home for years in a former Kmart store. Cholerton said Caldwell has taken a knife to its financials in order to stay afloat. Budgets have been slashed in the private and public sectors so grants, sponsorships and dona tions are down, he said. In an effort to absorb these losses, we have cut staffing, expenses and become as bare bones as possible while still providing exceptional professional theater. He said that ticket sales are actually up. Our subscription base has actually increased from last year to this year. Moreover, our single tickets sales from last year were almost double that of the previous year. Ticket sales will only cover 40 percent of the budget required to produce a performance. In short, we are surviving. Though just barely. Cholerton is calling on residents to help meet the challenge before us. If everyone who receives this request would donate at least $20 we would meet this challenge. If youre able to give a larger gift, it would be greatly appreciated. He is asking people to consider making a taxdeductible gift NOW!

The event venue spans 1/3 of a mile down East Camino Real from Federal Highway to the Boca Ra ton Resort and Club. But this will be no ordinary street festival, it will be an unparalleled sensory feast that offers three very special events over two days. Friday night kicks off the festivities with two unique events, the VIP DinnerUnder-the-Stars, and the Grand Tasting Launch Party presented by Creekstone Farms. Then Saturday night, 70 chefs from the tri-county area converge upon downtown Boca for the incredible Grand Tasting event."Last year, we did one night and it was incredibly successful," explains Russell Spadaccini, event founder and CEO of BocaRaton.com. "So we decided to expand to two days and create more innovative options for our guests to savor." "The VIP Dinner is limited to about 200 guests who will select a global region in which they choose to dine," says Stanfield, who is hosting the evening. Here they join about 30 other attendees for an incredible multicourse feast prepared by a signature chef. In addition, they will sample an array of wonderful wines and then complete the evening by dancing under the stars, and enjoying many of the other surprises we have in store." The other option for Friday night is the Grand Tasting Launch Party. This will be a funfilled affair for more than 750 guests, who will enjoy a lavish selection of beef dishes prepared using event sponsor Creekstone Farms' natural premium Angus beef. They will also savor great salads, vegetable platters, artisan breads, sweet treats, an open wine and beer bar, and entertainment. "Friday will definitely be amazing," said Spadaccini. "We created a night with two different price points, but with equally exciting appeal."And then it's on to Saturday's Grand Tasting. Thanks to the talents of Robert Stanfield the event designer and honorary chair, guests will be completely transported to an international tour of tastes, sounds and sights. "Each section will have it's own ambiance," said Stanfield. "The regions such as Italy, France, Asia and so on, will have authentic cuisine, regionally-themed music and decor. Guests The 2nd Annual Boca Raton Wine and Food Festival October 11th and 12, 2011 A Culinary Aair! will be totally amazed by their sojourn." The Grand Tasting will feature 70 chefs in full foodie mode, the wine will be flowing, the gourmet and retail bazaars will be buzzing and everyone will be danc ing all night! Some of the restaurants represented at the Festival include Casa d' Angelo, Wave 2700, Steak 954, Oceans 234, The Melting Pot, Saquella, Sea Level, Ovenella, Mythos Greek Tavern, Inka and so many more. Just the Festival unites so many wonderful community restaurants, they have also reached out to the tri-county area's most distinguished charities to share in the bounty of the event."When we began planning this event one of the ways we differentiated ourselves was by involving the community," says Spadaccini. "We invited 13 local charities to partake in the event. Each charity is selling tickets and receiving a percentage of their ticket sales, in addition to the proceeds from the Friday night VIP silent auc tion. But when Creekstone Farms generously offered a special $5000 donation, we knew we needed to do something amazing!" Three acclaimed chefs at Saturdays Grand Tasting will showcase their skills during the live kitchen battle, as they compete to create a signature dish fea turing beef from Creekstone Farms. Each chef will cook on behalf of a local charity, privately selected prior to the competition. After a panel of esteemed judges selects the winning dish, the chef champion will reveal the charity to receive the generous donation. The charities involved in the event are the PROPEL (PropelYourFuture. org), Alzheimer's Association SEFC, American Heart Association, Boca Helping Hands, Broward Children's Center Foundation, Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation, Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center, Scleroderma Foundation of Southeast Florida, SOS Children's Villages Florida, Surfers for Autism, and the Tri County Humane Society, The Boca Ballet, and Kids4kids.For tickets and more details please visit www.bocaratonwineandfoodfestival.com Chef Photo Boca Raton Wine and Food Festival 2011Bocas First Lady of Theatre to star in comedy thriller Gin Game

A reading of the play was presented Oct. 24 as part of McArt's Theatre Arts Guild Play Reading Series at Boca Raton's Lynn University (where she currently heads up the theatre arts program development) Wayne Rudisill directed the reading, with a cast that included Jeffrey Bruce, soon to be seen in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre; Iris Acker, host of the Bea con TV series "Onstage with Iris Acker" and soon to be seen in The Tale of the Allergists Wife at the Boca Raton Theatre Guild and Beth Holland, New York actress/song stylist and Board of Directors President for the Symphony of the Americas. Another reading will then be presented at the Byron Carlyle Theatre in Miami Beach on November 5th at 7p.m. as part of the fourth annual all-night arts and culture festival Sleepless Night Miami Beach. The cast for the Miami Beach reading will again include McArt and Bruce, this time with Shari Upbin and Blanca Goodfriend. The play takes place on Gin Lane, a narrow Southampton road filled with ocean-front mansions out on the end of New York's Long Island, where Max Greenway (a Broadway producer/director) died last spring apparently a suicide. But his widow, the former stage star Delphine Davenport, thinks it was ... murder! She and her French maid, Fifi, are spending Labor Day weekend at the Greenway country estate, along with her stepsister, Winnie, and an old boy friend, Inspector Benjamin Walker, formerly of Scotland Yard. And she intends to solve this 'homicide' before Monday ... if it kills her. "I'm particularly excited about the October 24th event because that was the first time the play has ever been read in public, said McArt. We decided to present it as a "radio" play, said Finstrom. So, rather than doing a simple reading, we'll be presenting this as though we are in front of a radio studio audience, with sound effects and some music and a few costumes. Of course this play demands the presence of a big star, and I'm thrilled that Jan McArt is willing to take on the central role of a glamorous, former Broadway ac tress. The part fits her like a satin glove, and I think she plans to change costumes at least three times over the course of the presentation! It should be a lot of fun."

By Marc Kent The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Memory often distorts reality. Some good things become better than what they really were. Some bad things become worse, but as a rule we idealize the past. After the Revolution is a thought-provoking play by Amy Herzog, running through Nov. 20 at Caldwell Theatre Company, 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton. Emma Joseph is the main character in this work, impressively played by Jackie Rivera in her Caldwell debut. There is another main character we never see: Emmas grandfather Joe, who died a year and a half before the setting in New York City in 1999. Emma is a proud, idealist leftist who has just graduated from law school. Emma has established a legal defense in her grandfathers memory. One of its first cases is a Black Panther Party member accused of murdering a Philadelphia policeman. Joe Joseph was one of those Americans who became involved with the Communist Party in the USA, and as such he was summoned before the court of the House Un-American Activities Committee, headed by Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Like many of the ac cused at these hearing, Joe pled the Fifth Amendment and refused to name names of alleged Communists. Because of this he lost his politically sensitive government job. Sen. McCarthy and his zealous prosecution of pinkos and Commies have been largely discredited, but not all his targets were blameless, innocent victims of rightwing politics. There were Marxists who sincerely believed the Soviet Union had a better solution, and its dictator, Joseph Stalin, was not such a bad guy. The truth is often found between extremes. Joe Josephs school teacher son Ben (Gordon Mc Connell) knows some things about his father that are not very flattering. In fact some things old Joe did were quite disturbing and even shocking. Worse, everyone in the family except Emma knows these secrets. After the Revolution examines what happens to a character whose faith in her family is betrayed; not maliciously but out of misplaced loyalty and kindness. Events unfold quickly in the 11 scenes of Act One, which sets up the big reveal detailed in the six scenes of the shorter Act Two. While the main thrust of the play is the anger, disappointment and disillusionment of Emma, there also is humor and wry wit in the script, played to maximum effect by the polished, experienced cast. There is authentically warm banter between ultra-liberal crusader Ben Joseph and his stalwart wife Mel (Nancy Barnett). This does not come as a surprise as they are married in real life. Barnett was an administrator for many years for Florida Stage, and this is her first acting job in quite some time. You can tell she relishes it. Tiffany-Leigh Moskow makes the most of her screwed-up, druggy Jess, younger sister to Emma. Im sure Harriet Oser doesnt mind being called an old pro since she is, and her comic sense is impeccable as Emmas elderly hard-of-hearing step-grandmother. Handsome Arturo Fernandez manages to find humor in his role of Emmas paramour Miguel, the worlds most patient, perfect boyfriend. Howard Elfman makes the best of his small role as a former friend of and potential donor to Joes foundation. Guest director Margaret M. Ledford brings a deft touch to the proceedings, and as always Tim Bennetts set is fine. Good show, ladies and gentlemen. Tickets are $27-$50. Call 877-245-7432 or go to www.caldwelltheatre. com.Keeping the Light Aame; After the Revolution opens at CaldwellHigh volume beat music sets the pace for this lively pub featuring a variety of really great food at the amazing price of $8.88 for any of 24 hot/cold dishes. We began with a chilled portion of guacamole slightly spiced with cayenne and a bit chunky, a garlicky hummus served with fresh pita trangles, then a Caesar salad of crisp cut greens in an eggcellent dressing with shaved parmesan. A delicious presentation of a roasted beet and goat cheese stack with pear and balsamic syrup was a fantastic offering! There are five other plates listed on this Cold Stuff menu. Nineteen hot plates include baby back ribs with zangy BBQ sauce the ribs are meaty and well smoked and served with a fine coleslaw. We raved over the Maine lobster mac & cheese with chunks of lobster meat in a creamy white truffle essence and parmesan bread crumbs! A grilled rib eye quesa dilla with roasted peppers and onions, cheddar jack cheese had a dipping sauce of crme fresh and lime very, very nice. On their daily special menu was Merrimack Valley meatballs giant spheres covered in sauce with a dollop of ragotti a good dish, this. A jumbo crab cake with a crusty shell was very good by itself but even better with its chipotle aioli drizzle and wicked good cold slaw. Keeping with the fish offerings, we had Veracruz style fish tacos seared mahi, pico de gallo and crma latina crunchy, delicious flavor. Attention spice lovers! The crispy fried salt and pepper calamari with hot cherry peppers and garlic found tender morsels of calamari with a very hot bite and after bite and deep flavor. Speaking of spice Falcon House lists hellfire spicy jerk chicken lollipops well done chicken legs with a tangy mango cilantro dipping sauce meaty and flavorful and hot! We had an unusual Shepherds pie sea soned ground chuck with whipped potatoes and corn kernelsa different taste to try. Pork is well represented in the form of slow roasted BBQ pork with cider braised red cabbage on warm buns, served with homemade potato chips. Barbequed green lamb on a stick was tender and tasty with a minty rhubarb chutney for dipping. We also opt for the homemade Falcon Fries great tasting fries with a house sea soning and truffle aioli. Only three desserts are listed these at a bargain price of $7.77 for nice size portions of a blueberry caramel bread pudding that was served with fresh berries and whipped cream an excellent treat. Three ramekins arrived, each a treat of baby crme brulee flavors that are constantly changed by Chef Jimmy. Chocoholics will applaud the Ghardelli chocolate brownie a giant portion of a not too rich wedge with vanilla Blue Bell ice cream, fudge sauce and whipped cream. Any one dessert is a fitting end to this excellent dining experience. Falcon House seats eighteen at their full bar and eighty more at tableside.

BusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune BOCA RATON -West Boca Medical Center is among the few hospitals in south Florida to offer the DaTscan, a new diag nostic imaging technique that allows physicians to differentiate Parkinsons disease from other movement disorders. The DaTscan is the only FDA-approved imag ing agent for assessment of movement disorders such as Parkinsons Disease. The DaTscan is a critical step in our ability to accurately diagnose and treat movement disorders like Parkinsons disease early, and often earlier diagnosis can mean more effective treatments, said Mitch Feldman, CEO. Prior to this technology, physicians had to rely on clinical assessment alone to assess for movement disorders; now, physicians can use the DaTscan to clinically identify patients who have loss of dopamine, the major chemical responsible for the symptoms of movement disorders. Symptoms of Parkinsons disease are attributed to a decrease in dopamine in the brain, which causes muscle tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with movement and balance. Early in the disease when symptoms are slight, it is often difficult for physicians to differentiate between movement disorders based on clinical examination alone. The DaTscan, developed by GE Healthcare, detects dopamine transporters in the brain. A pa tient is injected with the contrast agent and then undergoes a specialized scan. The scan captures detailed pictures of the brains dopamine system and shows the presence of dopamine transporters. In patients with Parkinsons Disease or another parkinsonian syndrome, the scans show extremely low dopamine levels. We are proud to bring the DaTscan to our pa tients and local community, as it will support our doctors in providing the right diagnostic answers to patients, which will influence the most ap -West Boca Medical Center provides new imaging test for Parkinsons disease propriate long term treatment of diseases like Par kinsons Disease and offer patients the best possible clinical outcomes said Feldman.

By Skip Sheffield BOCA RATON -Boca has a new restaurant and its a wienerer, winner. If you like German food and beer, you now have a source at the Biergarten, located at 309 Via De Palmas in Royal Palm Place Its kind of ironic that this Teutonic-themed dream is the work of two Italian-Americans, but owner Arturo Gismondi and design consultant Tim Gaglio know how to make a restaurant work. The Biergarten was a good year in planning, preparation and rehearsal before the doors opened last week. One thing you notice right off the bat is the German-costumed young ladies and men who swarm the place to serve diners. Inside it is a mock German forest fantasy, with ivy, colorful beer steins, antlers and even an antler chandelier. The selection of beer is vast and the prices fair. Beer is proof God wants us to be happy- Ben Franklin is my favorite of the many beer quotes etched on a mirrored wall. The menu is heavy on wurst, sausage and schnitzel, but you can also get burgers, sliders, deli sandwiches and salads. Live entertainment is offered five nights a week on an elevated loft, and its not just oompah-pah. Biergarten is a lively, welcome addition to the downtown Boca Raton scene.

Columnists The Boca Raton TribuneMichael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Specialization and Education of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law, and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora may be reached by e-mail at mhgora@sbwlawfirm.com. By Mike Gora By Rick Warren Q: I have been dating a man for a few months. We have been talking about moving in together. He works for a large company, owned by his father, and travels all over the world on business. He wants me to give up my job, so that I can travel with him. He was recently divorced, and gun-shy when the word marriage is mentioned. We are both in our early 30s. I have never been married. Neither of us has children. I have a great job as the administrator of an advertising firm. Last night he told me that his parents insisted that we have a living to gether agreement in order to protect his assets, including his interests in his family business, and future inheritance. He has a house on the beach, Mercedes, boat, etc., but I guess the family is very wealthy. I had never heard of such agreement, although I certainly know people who have signed a prenuptial agreement. Since we have no plans to marry, why have such an agreement? A: Lee Marvin was a well-known movie and TV actor. Cases regarding the rights of people who live together without marrying are sometimes called Lee Marvin or palimony cases because of a large suit brought against him in California many years ago by his live-in girlfriend. As in most cases in family law, the law is different from state to state. Florida case law does not recognize any rights between people living to gether, just because they are living together in an intimate relationship; that is, the sexual aspect of the relationship gives rise to no rights. While common law marriage used to exist in Florida, and most states, it no longer exists in Florida and does only in a few states. Florida courts do recognize rights between people who live together based upon their financial agreements and relationships. These rights can be by contract, written or oral. Of course an oral contract is hard to prove, or easy to fabricate. Such a contract may call for one person to support another for a period after a breakup, for a lump sum of cash, or a car, or a house, or more. A court can also con struct a trust between two people from their financial circumstances. Let us say that both work but they decide to live on the income of one person, and invest the income of the other. After years, the saver has a few hundred thousand dollars, and the oth er person has little saved, but has provided all financial support. A court can rule that the saver holds the savings in trust for both, based on their close relationship, and the unfairness to do otherwise. To avoid the possibility of a court finding a contract or a trust the couple can sign a Living Together Agreement, which will be enforced by the Florida Courts, as a legal contract entered into between consenting adults. The agreement can disavow the existence of any past agreement, and require that any future agreement be in writing to be enforceable. It can permanently waive any right to any money or property com ing into the hands of either, in the future. As with pre or postnuptial agreements, it should be voluntarily signed, and based upon full disclosure of assets, liabilities and income of both parties. Many issues can be covered to protect both parties. In your case, you should negotiate a financial safety net if things do not work out, since you will be giving up a lucrative job in order to move in and travel with your friend. Rules for live-ins to live byAlmost every one of us has something about ourselves we would like to change at work, in relationships, in day-today habits and actions. To change your life, however, you must first change how you think. Behind everything you do is a thought. Every behavior is motivated by a belief, and every action is prompted by an attitude. To hear modern-day gurus tell it, this would seem to be a startling new discovery. But God revealed this truth thousands of years before psychologists understood it: "Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts" (Proverbs 4:23, Todays English Version). To illustrate this point, imagine riding in a speedboat on a lake with an automatic pilot set to go eastward. If you were to decide to reverse course and head toward the west, you have two possible ways to change the boat's direction. One way is to grab the steering wheel and physically force the speedboat to head in the opposite direction from where the autopilot has been programmed to guide it. By sheer willpower, you could overcome the autopilot, but you would feel constant resistance. Your arms would eventually tire of the stress, you would have to let go of the steering wheel, and the boat would instantly turn back toward the east, as it had been internally programmed. Sounds like a lot of hard work, correct? And the change would only be temporary once you stopped trying to force the change, all would return to the way it was before. This is what happens when you try to change your life with willpower. You tell yourself, "I will force myself to eat less ... stop smoking ... quit being disorganized and late not respond angrily when I am under pressure." Willpower can produce short-term change, but creates constant internal stress because you have not dealt with root causes of what you would like to change. Making the change you desire does not feel natural. It requires great effort and willpower. Eventually you give up and go off the diet, grab another cigarette, arrive late for another important meeting, or react with inappropriate anger. There is a better and easier way: Change your autopilot change the way you think. Or, as the Bible says, be willing for it to change: "Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think" (Romans 12:2). Change always starts first in the mind. The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act, which means, "there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes" (Ephesians 4:23). To be like Christ, you must develop the mind of Christ. The Bible talks about having the mind of Jesus Christ, and calls this mental shift, "repentance." The Greek literally means, "to change your mind and direction." To repent means to change the way you think. You must change your thinking about God, yourself, sin, other people, life, your future, everything; and adopt Christ's outlook and perspective on life: You follow Him! 2011, Purpose Driven Life.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. By Gerald J. ShermanGerald J. Sherman, MBA, DBA of Sherman & Perlman LLC, Marketing is a Boca Raton-based, author, marketing consultant and public relations person who has written several books and articles on these subjects. http://www.shermanperlman.com jerry@shermanperlman.com 561.715.2788 The Boca Raton Tribune BUSINESS East/West Boca Raton, FL In the free-market scenario where consumers have relatively free choice over the products/services they may purchase, which applies to most of the Western world, sales thrive upon positive public opinion. Consumers purchasing decisions are often guided more by what the consumer thinks is important rather than whether or not they fulfill their basic needs. The media has taken on a major role behind public opinion. Therefore, the business entity should develop a relationship with the media if it aims to create positive brand recognition and increase market share. As much as the media have a bearing on creating wants, it can conversely create a negative public opinion of a brand. When an action of the organiza tion lacks ethical conduct, you can be sure the media will be right on top of it. No business can survive without its customer base which buys its products/ services and provides the company with profits in return. To better understand how public opinion affects business in general, we must first look at how public opinion affects purchasing decisions. After all, if the companys publics do not decide to purchase its products/services, it will go out of business. Public relations, then, is entrusted with the function of creating a positive public opinion for the company and its products with as many publics as possible. Some considerations that most customers take into account when deciding whether to buy a particular product/service are: value, quality of goods or servic es rendered, brand recognition, and the reputation of the business organization. There may be another consideration and that is nega tive hearsay. Public opinion enters the scene because it can influence the customers thinking, thus indirectly modifying the customers purchasing habits. If Courtney reads in her favorite magazine that a particular brand has become popular with celebrities, she might be much more inclined to buy that brand than if she just happened to see the brand at her local department store. While the companys success does not hinge on just one customer or only one transaction, it certainly requires a certain number of active customers or a specific number of transac tions to become profitable. The public opinion--and by extension, the individual opinions of the customers which constitute the companys base--about the company and its products/ services thus becomes quite important to the companys survival. Positive public opinion typically translates into more sales and an expansion of the companys operations; negative public opinion typically precedes a decline in demand for the companys products/ services, and a decrease in sales and profits. It is therefore imperative for a company to understand the various buying criteria of its various publics and to stay abreast of the current public opinion about its products, service, and business practices. Public opinion plays a vital role, since public opinion can affect relationships. Stories in the media, social media, word of mouth, Internet blogs and other outlets for public opinion can affect how a client views the company, and in turn affect how they deal with the company. Public opinion is fluid and volatile. Predicting changes in public opinion may be as difficult and uncertain as forecasting the weather at times. However, understanding the forces which shape public opinion can help a company be better equipped to sense that changes are taking place. To comprehend what these changes are may require the implementation of sensible, ethical public rela tions, advertising and promotional strategies.Excerpts from the book, Fashion Public Relations, Gerald J.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune By Orlando Greenwald The hot streak the Strikers were riding was cooled off by the Stars on a cold night in Blaine, Minnesota. The Strikers have not experienced a loss since September 24th when they lost against FC Tampa Bay 2-0 in the season finale. Having scored 10 goals in 3 games so far in the playoffs, the Strikers were held to only a single goal, which came from an own goal when Lance Laing crossed a ball which hit a Minnesota defender and redirected into the goal in the 52nd minute. The game began with a quick goal from the Stars, in the 4th minute Neil Hlavaty scored from a free kick. The free kick was just outside the penalty box, and was set up by a Bryan Arguez foul. "It was a tough night for us from the start with giving up the goal in the fourth minute," said Strikers head coach Da ryl Shore. "We know it's only halftime and we now come home knowing what we need to do. We're disappointed with the result, but know we have 90 minutes to play." After the score was tied up at 1, the Stars scored 2 more, one by Luke Mulholland in the 53rd and another by Lucas Rodriguez in the 77th minute. For the first time in these playoffs, the Strikers leader, Brain Shriver was shutout and did not score. The first leg of the NASL Championship Series ended at 3-1 and now the Strikers come home down 2 goals in aggregate. Fort Lauderdale will host the Stars on October 29th at 7:30 pm at Lock hart Stadium. The second and final leg will decided the winner of the NASL Championship. The Strikers will need to win by 3 goals if they want to finish it in 90 minutes or win by 2 goals to send it to a 30 minute extra time.

The Fight ing Knights will be looking to lock up their ninth Sunshine State Conference title since joining the league in 1998. These two teams are meeting in the season finale for the second con secutive year. Last season it was Barry who needed a victory to clinch the SSC regular season title but the tables have turned heading into Wednes days match. A victory would give LU a share of the regular season crown with Rollins. However, the Knights hold the tiebreaker and would be the No. 1 seed in the SSC Tournament by virtue of a head-to-head victory. A loss to the Bucca neers (11-1-3, 3-1-3 SSC), though, could push the Blue & White (11-4-0, 5-2 SSC) to as low as a fourseed, where they would host a first round matchup on Tuesday, November 1, against the No. 5 seed. Two shutouts last week has given the Blue & White a conferencehigh nine this season. Ja son Sangha has asserted himself as one of the top defenders in the conference, anchoring a back line that has surrendered a conference-low three goals in SSC play and eight overall, tied with Rollins for the fewest. As a team, LUs 0.55 goalsagainst average is sixth in More than Bragging Rights on the Line for Lynns Mens Soccer the country. Harald Gracholski and Heiko Eberhardt have ac counted for over half of Lynns offensive production with the German duo combining for 14 of the teams 28 goals. The Fighting Knights scor ing doesnt stop there as 10 different players have found the back of the net at least once. Meeting for the 28th time since 1986, LU is 18-8-1 all-time against Barry. Lynns 18 victories against Barry are third in program history behind Florida Tech (21) and Nova Southeastern (25). The last time the Bucs defeated the Knights in Boca was 2005. Prime focus will be paid to Barrys Mark Anderson. The senior forward leads the nation in goals (19) and goals per game (1.36) and is second in points per game (2.86). Barrys scoring drops off considerably after Anderson with Connor Randal second on the squad with four goals.

The Blue Raiders came out guns hot and built up a 21-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. We werent prepared on defense, said senior defensive back Marcus Bartels. We didnt have the right adjustments. We werent ready for the short passes and screens. Its hard to win when they score 21 points in the first quarter. But in the second quarter, just for a moment, it looked as if the Owls were on the comeback trail. After an elec trifying 48-yard run by senior running back Alfred Morris, senior tight end Darian Williams connected on a 5-yard pass from Graham Wilbert for the first ever touchdown for the Owls in their brand new sta dium. It felt good, said Williams of being in the record books. But at the same time, we got the loss. Despite what seemed to be a momentum shifter in the game, the Owls could not hold off the Blue Raiders as the Owls ended up losing 38-14 in from of the announced crowd of 16,344. The Owls remain winless in the season with a record of 0-7 (0-4 Sun Belt). I cant figure out why FAU Owls are raided at home, remain winlessDarian Williams scores the first points at FAU Stadium with a 5-yard reception from Graham Wilbert on Oct. 22 for the Owls against Middle Tennessee. Photo by Bob Markey II / www.PalmsWestPhoto.com we have the problems that we have, Coach Howard Schnellenberger said. Its the basic of playing winning football. FAUs defense looked god for a few plays, after the touchdown play for the Owls; The Owls held MTSU on a fourth-and-1 at the FAU 32 and moved the ball to the MTSU 40 before Wilbert lost the ball on a fumble during a sack. In all, there were eight fumbles (a school record), running back Alfred Morris had three of the eight fumble, The turnovers just killed our drives, Morris said. "I really wasnt forcing it. My arms were sweaty and it just shot out of my arms." FAU put up 276 yards versus MTSUs 479. FAU was 5-of-12 in third-down conversions and was sacked four times for 20 yards Despite his fumbles, Morris led all rushers with 153 yards on 18 carries. Despite the 0-7 record, Morris believes the Owls can improve and win. This is football. Anything can happen.

Dr. S. Benjamin Roldan D.M.D. M.S. P.A. and Associates bocaratontribune.comBy: Mike T Pedersen I've heard this time and time again. Golfers saying lifting weights will hurt their swing. They'll lose their feel and tempo. This couldn't be farther from the truth. If this were true, then why do most of the top golfers on tour do it? Most even have a trainer that travels with them. Weight training for golf is not the same as what you see in your local gym. It's not sitting on a machine and going brain dead, nor is it bench pressing heavy weights. That's what I call general fitness, not golf fitness. Golf weight training is when you break down the movements of the swing and adding resistance like the use of dumbbells or exercise tubing. This type of training can be done in your home. You don't need a gym membership to do these types of exercises. The time saving removes all reasons to not do it. Especially during the winter months when you're not even playing golf. The key muscles to focus on is your core, shoulders back and glutes. These are muscles that are actively used during the swing and if strengthened can increase power and consistency. It's about time golfers realized they should work on their body to play better golf. If you're a senior golfer you more than likely have experienced a massive decline in your physical capacity which directly affects your power and also results in injury and pain.Lifting Weights For Golf Wont Hurt Your SwingThe golf swing is damaging to the body, and unless you focus on strengthening your muscles, your body will continue to break down to the point of not being able to play golf anymore. I've seen thousands of golfers who have embarked on a golf exercise program even at the age of 65 and seen amazing results. When you get your body stronger specific to your golf swing, you'll be soon pounding that golf ball.Article Source: http://www.bettergolfarticles.com

You know that he is probably siding with the majority of the owners because he believes that the current system is broken. As a businessman, he wants to maximize profits for himself and increase revenues for his franchise. Therefore, he wants to make the NBA much more profitable. However, Mark Cuban is not your prototypical professional sports owner. Mark Cuban is the equiva lent of a diehard fan owning a team. Cuban is not in it just for the money. He is involved with the NBA because he has a remarkable love and passion for the game of basketball. Cuban is a highly competitive and intense individual. He realizes the importance of having some type of NBA season. Just think about it. Mr. Cuban has an aging roster that won the NBA title this past season. He knows his team has a very small window. What I mean by this is that the Mavericks core group of players doesnt have a lot of time to compete for another championship. The average age of the entire Dallas Mavericks roster is 33. Thats pretty old. Mark Cuban is not only an excellent owner who is not afraid to increase payroll when he needs to, but he is also a great team builder. This is why he is smart and savvy enough to understand that in about 2 or 3 years at the most, he is going to have to rebuild his entire team from scratch. Even Cubans superstar franchise player Dirk Nowitzki is 33 years old. He isnt getting any younger whatsoever. You better believe Cuban is going to have his work cut out for him in a few more years. It is very important for Mark Cuban to have the leagues best interests at heart, his teams best interests at heart and his fans best interests at heart. He needs to make sure he is on the right team. He should be on Micky Arisons anti lockout team, not his buddy Dan Gilbert pro lockout team. You can sympathize with Mark Cuban to a certain degree because he is in a very tough predicament. He isnt one of the irrational owners in the room. At least one can hope he isnt.Where is Mark Cuban in the NBAs labor negotiations?

Delonte West tweets that he has to get a job because he lives paycheck to paycheck, and he made over a million last season. Whether the players are right or wrong, athletes in major sports are always behind the eight ball when it comes to public relations during times like the NBA is in right now, but seriously, the players keep shooting themselves in the foot when it comes to public relations right now. Carmelo Anthony has been going around doing interviews. Who was the one in the players offices that said, lets let Carmelo be one of the voices for the players? Wasnt this the same player that demanded, and pouted his way out of Denver, ticking off many fans in the process last year? He did not start going to the meetings till the last minutes. Carmelo states the players are not doing a very good job in the public relations department. The latest public rela tions disaster is coming from the stars again. Stars like LeBron James, Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh to name a few are traveling the globe all making at least six figures, some over a million to play basketball. These players should not need the extra money. Here is a huge public relations opportunity that they are throwing away. How about donating all the money after traveling expenses, going towards all of the employees that are out of work now because of the lockout? Also none of the games are played in the US. They should travel around to NBA arenas have exhibition games in them and have the proceeds go towards the employees for the arenas. Dare the owners to say no to this. Seriously, no way could the owners say no to this, the employees get a days worth of pay working the day of the game, and get some money to help them NBA Players keep shooting themselves in the footout when they really do need it. Danny Granger took the employees at Conseco Field House out for dinner. The players need to do things like this. Instead I keep hearing them wine and complain about the lockout. Suck it up. America is not in the mood to listen to millionaires cry. A ton of people do not care about the lockout right now, especially while football is going on. There is a reason there is only one or two games about every Sunday during football season for a reason. These players are in for a rude awakening if they really think people feel sorry for them or the majority of America cares about this issue. The players need to think about how to turn the public relations battle in their favor. Right now, they keep shooting themselves. The owners are not doing much to win it, but they understand they do not need to. They understand the players are destroying themselves. The players need to look into getting big named public relation associations, because they have proven they do not understand public relations.
