The sun has actually returned to the Sunshine State. But you wouldnt know this was Florida for the torrents of rain that fell this past weekend. South Florida got a lashing from the outer bands of a passing hurricane (Rina) and then got slapped by another passing weather front. We got a lot of rain, said Sandra Boonenberg, public information officer for Boca Raton Police Services. She said there was flooding in the usual spots along with stalled-out cars and some power outages. There was nothing Boca PD couldnt handle, though. Boonenberg said there was flooding in the area of Second Avenue, at Camino and Federal, Jeffery and Second and along Federal Highway north of 20th Street. Some traffic lights also malfunctioned. She said the traffic turmoil could have been worst, but the most torrential rain happened late Friday when most of the population had taken shelter from the storm. There were not a lot Look, up in the sky, the sun is back!of issues, she said. Usually, the city puts up signs warning of flooding. Rain continued in spotty fashion over the weekend, and often popped up when least expected. Often, it came in the form of showers that didnt last long. Weather sources say the Boca area got about 5 inches of rain officially, 4.46 inches at the Palm Beach International Airport. It could have been worse. In Hobe Sound far north of Boca, 42 mobile homes were damaged by a tornado. In fact, warnings about the potential of twisters were broadcast on TV and radio, with meteorologists standing in front of maps with large areas of red and yellow the signs of heavy rains. Luckily, the worst of the bad weather abated before little ghouls and goblins took to the streets for Halloween Monday night. They didnt seem to mind the damp sidewalks and hedges as they searched for treats. Boca got socked hardest by the early rains of Friday and Saturday those associated with Hurricane Rina as it passed to the south. Weather officials said Boca along with neighboring Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Highland Beach recorded the heaviest downpours from the late-season cyclone. Rainwater floods plaza parking lot.

Sophie thought the walk might be a bit too much for her little legs, but she knew that all the walkers would love an ice cold cup of pink lemonade. So, she set up her stand along the walk route on Palmetto Park Road, in front of ego the salon, which sponsored her stand. Sophie was so proud of herself, she raised $333.56. She had one little problem. Many of the walkers were so disappointed that they had no money with them. Sophie was even willing to give them the lemonade for free, telling all the people with the pretty pink bras that they could pay her later.

BOCA RATON Just weeks before the presidential election in 2012, the two candidates for the nations top office will square off in a debate at Boca Ratons Lynn University. Lynn has been selected as the site of the final 2012 presidential debate by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). It will be held October 22, 2012. The CPD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation and has sponsored all general election presidential and vice presidential debates since 1988. Lynn was one of 12 sites nationwide, and the only institution in Florida, under consideration to host one of three presidential, or one vice presidential debates, produced by the CPD. Being an undergraduate or graduate student here on our campus when such an historic event takes place will provide a singular and unparalleled educational experience, said Lynn University President, Kevin M. Ross. The site has already hosted a Congressional District 22 debate in Oc tober 2010 between thenincumbent Ron Klein and Allen West. Lynn University submitted its application to the Commission in January 2011 and hosted staff from the Commission on Presidential Debates over the summer for an on-site survey of the proposed debate venue and campus. Lynn University received overwhelming and nearly unilateral support for its application from government officials at all levels, including the entire Florida Congressional Delegation, the Florida Cabinet, the leadership of the Florida Legisla ture, former Governor Jeb Bush, former Governor Bocas Lynn University to host nal presidential debate in 2012 The final presidential debate of the 2012 campaign will be held in this venue, the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center at Lynn University.and Senator Bob Graham, Palm Beach County officials, Boca Raton Mayor Susan Whelchel, and many others. Preparing for an event of this magnitude will require the campus and community to come together now and organize for the arrival of the candidates, their campaign staff members, and thousands of national and international journalists expected to come to the area to cover the debate. It is a tremendous challenge, but Lynn University will be prepared to welcome the nation to Florida for the final debate before the 2012 general election, Ross said. A press conference to discuss the debate was scheduled this week at the site of the debate, Lynns Keith C. & Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center. School officials said no additional comments about Lynns hosting of the debate would be made before the press conference. A website for the 2012 presidential debate at Lynn University is currently under construction and will be live in the coming weeks.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.As the Statue of Liberty celebrates its 125th Gala my family and I gather around the dinner table and raise a toast to her and the ideals she stands for. The belief in freedom is the foundation of our great country and a moral value for which countless have sacrificed to achieve. The Declaration of Independence declared that we were conceived with the unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. So many have traveled far, leaving the land of their birth, to adopt this principal and make the United State their home. Americans believe in the ideals of this country and have fought to preserve them so todays youth can live the American Dream. My father, Vince Zarrilli, an Italian immigrant, he still cries every time he tells me of his first sighting of the Statue of Liberty, almost forty nine years ago. Born in a rural Italian village without running water, electricity or cars, Papa dreamt of going to university. His mother finished first grade before working in the fields; his father, fourth grade before becoming a tailor. Despite many obstacles, leaving all they knew behind, his fa ther at age 51, his mother 48, and my Papa age 13 choose to come to America so my dad could pursue his dreams. He and his family left Italy in 1962 several days before Christmas and rode steerage in an old ship call the Saturnia. Their ocean voyage was dramatic. They thought they would never make it as the ship they crossed the Atlantic in hit three major winter storms and almost sank twice. They prayed with other seasick passengers on Christmas morning unable to eat the meager meal provided. Arriving two days later than expected, on New Years Eve 1963 my dad (his folks too sick stayed in their bunks) made his way out on the slippery ice encrusted deck as the Saturnia pulled into the New York Harbor. In the confusion of boarding the boat, my dad had forgotten his warm coat in Italy, but he said that he didnt mind the biting freezing night air as all he felt was the excitement of possibilities as he focused on the warm glow of hope radiating from the Ladys Torch lighting the way to the land of opportunity. My father learned Eng lish, worked hard, earned a college degree and became a United States Citizen. His folks never returned back to the land of their birth and are buried in their adopted home. My dad visited his home town of Calitri in southern Italy when he graduated college and took me there as a child. I had the good fortunate of taking a study abroad program in Italy the summer of 2010. It is the stories of my familys sacrifices and the Italian American traditions and values of importance taking responsibility, getting an education and being part of a community has lite the way for me much as the Statue of Liberty lite the way for my dad. So I as I toast the Statue, I give thanks to all who braved the journey and have labored to make America a place where dreams can come true.

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor If you read this column regularly, you know I have raved in the past about my wonderful dog, how smart he is and how his behavior is top-notch. Well, I didnt think it could happen, but he has actually gotten smarter. If he could talk, I would enroll him at an Ivy League school preferable one that has a dog as a mascot. (Maybe Id send him to my alma mater, Northeastern, whose symbol is the indomitable husky). Ive read that dogs generally have the vocabulary of a two-year-old human. Well, at age five, my little Peanut understands complete sentences. In his own very cognitive way, Peanut has developed a number of rituals. I know most dogs have this trait, but Peanut has a way of making his idiosyncrasies seem so human. Case in point. Pea nut has developed a love for Dentastix. (I just call them sticks). I read the label and determined that for his size and weight, he can have two a day. So when my wife and I retire for the night, Peanut usually jumps on the bed and watches TV with us. When the television goes off, our little baby sits up and looks at me. Its one of the looks. I ask him if he wants a stick. Either he bolts off the bed, or he nudges me in the back or on the knee. As I walk to the kitchen to get one, he pokes my ankles with his nose. He repeats this ritual one more time. And then he is off the big bed and down on his own for the night. Is that smart or what? He knows he can only have two. If for some reason, Pea nut doesnt get the bedtime message, my wife or I simply says: Peanut, go to sleep. And he is gone. I dont think I told you that going to bed is Pea nuts favorite thing. In the evening, Peanut lays on his mommys lap watching television. (His favorite shows seem to be Danc ing with the Stars and X Factor. Dont ask me why.) He stares intently at the TV screen. But around 9:30, Peanut lifts his head from the arm of my wifes reclining chair and looks at me. I know the look. He wants to go to bed. Since he seems to love his mommy and daddy very much, it is the only time of day he knows we will be with him for hours. And heres something. If I dont take Peanut to The smartest dog in the world Part II bed, he jumps to the floor and runs into the bedroom himself. I normally find him later, curled up on the spread, waiting for us to arrive. I should tell you that Peanut is very protective. His normal temperament is perfect. But if a stranger comes by, hes up, running and growling. You can imagine what Halloween was like at our house. We really should have gotten Peanut a new costume this year. He, again, was Spiderman but not for long. He soon shook off the cloak and he was his normal self again. Did I mention how well Peanut is known in our neighborhood? Most people I pass say, Hi, Peanut, but dont even acknowledge me. Our neighbors, Fran and Bob, who take care of Peanut when we are not around, say this is not a regular neighborhood, it is Peanuts neighborhood. So, I walk him each day, living in his shadow. As he grows more mature, some of his habits are changing. He has never been bothered by fireworks. This year, he refused to go for a walk when they were booming. He doesnt like going out in the rain, and looks at me like Im some dumb human when I try. So you can understand how tough these past few days have been. Anyway, Peanut is nice and clean from a weekend bath. I think Ill shut down the computer now and go see my wife and Peanut. Theyre both watching Dancing with the Stars.Peanut in Spiderman outfit, Halloween 2011To the editor: Thank you for your continued coverage of news from West Boca Medical Center and from Delray Medi cal Center.

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 People exist in differ ent sizes, shapes, and col ors. Their voices may be individually identifiable; their laughter is fully their own. Their talents are varied, and their personalities are quite unique. Because of all that, every person is most hard, if not impossible, to copy. Like snow flakes, people are saturated with individuality. Furthermore, every person is important in the world. Thats why war is so deplorable, even when necessary, and murder is a most heinous crime. Thats also the reason why many battles for human rights must be fought and won, through sound guidelines. All humans are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that speaks not only of our physical frames and their functioning, but of every single, intricate aspect of our humanity also, which makes me me, and you you! Someone suggested that after God made you, He threw away the mould, never to use it again! Indeed, no one else is like you! Indeed, the crown of all creation is not the man Adam, per se, but the entire human race represented in him, since his name ADAM means just that! Therefore, every time you look in the mirror, be grateful for what you see. And I dont mean the mirror itself, nor its frame, but your own self. Always remember that you are special, that you have been fashioned in the image and likeness of God. Herein lies our basic greatness! Recognize the good in other selves, by paying value to them, by affirming them. As a contemporary writer asserted, God has no wastebas kets. But for every person and for everything there is a purpose. If you look for good things in other people, you will surely find them. With all this in mind, each day rejoice at your own self; recognize that you are special; never lose sight of the fact that you and all fellow humans are beautiful creations. As the late Reuel Howe encouraged: Choose to say I am who I am and look forward to the I am that I am becoming. Each individual can only be ones own unique self. Thus, continue to be yourself, and consistently keep on improving who you are to become what you can be!Your Self and Other Selves Elsewhere in todays edition youll find my offering of personal best wishes to Erica and Raymond Alvarez on the birth of a son, Josiah Reese Alvarez, who entered this world at 12:04 a.m. on Oct. 29. Around the time my new friends gave birth to their son, I was reading a report on the Internet saying that the population of the world was about to hit seven billion. Imagine that! Seven billion people in the world. Seven billion mouths to feed every day. Fourteen billion eyes watching us, 14 billion ears tuning in to what is happening around the globe. According to the United Nations, the seven billionth person was to be born on Halloween an odd day for such a signifi cant event in the earths population total. Still, who really knew exactly when the seven billionth person would be born? For that matter, who knows for sure that the population of the world has actu ally hit the magic figure? Little Josiah may have won the blue ribbon for being the seven billionth, but who knows with certainty? By the time you counted all seven billion, there will probably be another billion to add in. Actually, it is scheduled to happen more quickly than you think. Just 12 years ago, the earth was home to 6 billion people, according to the UN, and back in the 1960s, the earths population measured only half that num ber three billion. And in the time of our founding fathers, there were just a single billion inhabitants on earth. Scientists have narrowed down the spot where the seven billionth child is or was likely to be born India. A baby is born in India nearly every second, making it the fast est growing country in the world. Indias population is expected to surpass that of China, currently the worlds most populous country, in only 14 years. And in a mere decade, scientists said, well be preparing to welcome the eight billionth person into the world. I know there are con cerns about overpopulation, adequate food, water and sanitation worries, available land for homes and proper education and employment. I prefer to be optimistic about new babies being born. Life is a wonderful thing, and something to be heralded. I think we can be cautious without being grim. With about 250 people being born every minute, UN officials said they are now urging world leaders to help keep up with the demand, with adequate food and clean water, to help ensure the population can be something to celebrate, not worry about. By the way, the population of the world is expected to hit 10 billion by the year 2100. Speaking of growth, Alliance Residential Company will host a groundbreaking ceremony at a 17-acre parcel of land located at 7801 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton on Wednesday, November 9 at 11 a.m. The company plans to build a $62 million luxury apartment community consist ing of 384 residential units called Broadstone at North Boca Village. The deal closed on Sept. 29 and Alliance anticipates initial lease-up to begin in the third quarter of 2012, with final completion expected in March 2013. This area was to be North Boca Village, a massive, multi-use facility approved several years ago, but fell through after the company planning it went bankrupt. The property is the site of the former Levitz Plaza. The new development will be a key to revitalizing the North Federal corridor.Is Josiah Reese Alvarez the seven billionth person in the world? bocaratontribune.com

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL BOCA RATON The Boca Raton Historical Society will hold an open house at a home in the Old Floresta section of the city on Nov. 15. The open house will be held at 777 Oleander St., Boca Raton. The cost is $15 a person. RSVP to 561-989-2100 or b.siegel@ langrealty.com The event will include refreshments and tours of this Addison Mizner-designed house in Boca Ra tons historic Old Floresta neighborhood. The society said many of the houses planned for Addison Mizners 1920s development in Boca Ra ton were never constructed. But the houses of the Old Floresta neighborhood were. And today, it is one of the citys historic districts. The Robinson Company received the contract to begin 29 homes in a neighborhood west of the El Rio Canal on West Palmetto Park Road in 1925. The houses were planned as a modest version of the Mizner style, with multi level roofs, stuc coed walls, ironwork, and plenty of tile. The homes were intended for the executives and directors of the Mizner Development Company. The Robinson Compa ny was unable to complete the construction of all of the Floresta homes before money ran out in the Bust of 1927. The property returned to the original land owners, one of whom was Hermann von Holst, who ensured the completion of the subdivision. He also named it Floresta, which translates a delightful rural place, and assigned the bird and flower names to the streets. Mizners plans for the Floresta homes included 10 models, some one, others two-story. Most of these models were constructed although many homes featured a reverse of the plan or were otherwise altered during actual construction. Most of the homes today have been added on toa necessary accommodation to modern living. The house at 777 Oleander Street is a reversed A one story style with additions on both sides. Boca Historical Society to sponsor open house at Old Floresta home Mizner designed house at 777 Oleander St. in Old Floresta Although the original owner is unknown, it was probably leased to an officer serving at the adja cent Boca Raton Army Air Field during World War II. Later, almost derelict, it was restored by long time owner D.C. Campbell and his wife Faun, who lived there from the 1960s through the 1980s. Saint Andrews High School Students spent their weekend delivering toiletries, magazines, gently used books, and Beanie Babies to the Conine Clubhouse at Joe DiMag gio Childrens Hospital in Hollywood, FL. The Clubhouse is a home away from home for families who have a child in the hospital. More than 600 families stay there each year. It was fun, said Junior Matthew Dagistino. And we knew we were making a difference when one of the moms staying at the clubhouse stopped to say thank you. Her son would be going home soon, but it meant a lot for her to have a place to stay so close to the hospital. The project to col lect items for the Conine Clubhouse was started by Kelsey Janser after she was a patient at Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital. She has been working with local hotels, physician offices, and members of the community to collect items for the Clubhouse for almost a year. She has collected thousands of items and makes regular deliveries, but this time she needed her friends help. We had two SUVs full, said Kelsey. Thanks to many generous donors we had toiletries, magazines, and more than 600 Beanie Ba bies to take to the Clubhouse. Beanie Babies have a special meaning at the Clubhouse; they are given to children when they complete their medical treatments. In addition to collect ing items for the Conine Clubhouse, Kelsey has raised more than $2,000 to help purchase toys, video games and new TVs. She plans to continue to raise funds and collect more items. Its gratifying to help people be as comfortable as possible when their child is sick. Im happy to be able to make a difference.

The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Did you know Wolfgang Mozart had a sister? Did you know she may have been a musical genius too? That is the premise of Mozarts Sister, a beautiful and melancholy film by French writer-director Rene Feret, starring his daughter, Marie Feret, now playing at FAUs Living Room Theaters. I did not know about Maria Anna Walburga Ig natia Mozart (Nallerl for short), born in 1751, four and a half years ahead of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, her gifted, certifiably genius younger brother. The film begins in 1763 during the rule of King Louis XV of France. The Mozart family is plodding along in their carriage when father Leopold (Marc Barbe) discovers an axle has cracked and must be repaired to continue the tour that will ultimately take them to the Palace of Versailles and an audience with the King and his court. The main attraction is 7-year-old Wolfgang (Da vid Moreau), who is not only a virtuoso violinist, but composer of the music he plays. Sister Nannerl ac companies on harpsichord and piano and sings. She used to be the star violinist, but stern, chauvinistic Leopold insists violin is not for a woman. Furthermore he refuses to let her compose music or teach her how to write it down. The family makes a detour to a convent that just so happens to have some very special guests. They are the illegitimate daughters of Louis XV, infamous for his debauchery. The eldest, Louise de France (Lida Feret, another of the directors daughters), takes an instant shine to Nannerl. The girls begin confiding, and Louise gives a letter to Nannerl to deliver to the boyfriend of her dreams at Versailles. It is through this boyfriend the Nannerl, disguised as a boy, meets the Dauphin (Clovis Foulin), the only surviving son of Louis XV. The Dauphin, shy and insecure, finds himself attracted to the messenger boy. When Nannerl confesses her true identity, the Dauphin is even more intrigued and asks her to compose something that can be played at his court. Mozarts Daughter is a frothy mix of history, romance and feminism. It is sumptuously beautiful, as much of it was filmed at Versailles. Music lovers will adore its soundtrack. It is highly doubtful how historically accurate it is, but it is a delicious what if? Three stars History, Music and Romance Blend in Mozarts Sister Scene from Mozarts SisterMy latest BocaFoodFind is the new Blues/ Jazz Restaurant in Downtown Boca called Blues FortyOne (41 E. Palmetto Park Rd.) I ventured out there the other night with a friend to check the place out. We were warmly greeted and asked if we'd like to be seated at a table or if we preferred to have a seat at the bar. We decided upon the latter. To get the evening started, I selected the Diseno Old Vine Malbec, ($7) and my friend had the Blufeld Riesling, ($7) both very tasty. We then glanced at the menu and soon discovered that it was quite eclectic. It had everything on it from Steak, Veal, Lamb, Pork and Fish to Sushi, Soups & Salads. It was explained to us that the thought behind the menu was that they wanted to be able to have something on the menu that would appeal to everyone in the party who came there. Well, I believe they hit their mark with these offerings. As we were trying to decide what sushi to start off with, Sushi Chef Chi came over to us and asked us to tell him what we liked. We both agreed that we liked eel and also a crunch factor, so he suggested we try the Crunchy Eel Roll, ($11), which was actually an adaptation of the Crunchy Tuna Roll. Besides the eel, which was definitely the star ingredient of this roll, Blues FortyOne The Place Crunchy Eel Roll Steak with Sweet Potato Croquet Eggplant Tower Panna cottait also had scallion and avocado and was fried perfectly. It was excellent, and quite a work of art to boot! Next up was the 14 oz Prime NY Strip Steak, ($39), with grilled Zuc chini & Sweet Potato Croquettes.

But with the sale racks beckoning I thought I better head to the mall! Trend wise there is great variety and many classic styles that make the must-buy list. Velvet: While most of us have the traditional black velvet slacks and many velvet wraps, the color spectrum of velvets this year makes for a bright selection, from burgundy to cobalt blue to gold, there's lots to choose from. Red: Red rules this season. Red dresses, red slacks, red tops and many accessories. So whether you choose to make people hum Lady in Red when they see you, or you just want a few powerful pops of color, you've got your options. Capes and Ponchos: Ever since I was kid I have had one! And they are perfect for South Florida winter nights. From clas sic blacks to more colorful tartans, there are lots of ways to get wrapped. Shoulders: Not since Donna Karan brilliantly made the shoulder the focal point of her collection years ago, has there been so much attention to this sexy spot. Make the most of it! Peplum: Hmmm excess material at the hips? Not sure about this trend, many designers showcased the looks and it has a wonderful classic throwback style, but see how it flatters your figure. And if it doesn't, then skip it. Graphic Patterns: Bold prints worn with other bold prints were a runway regular for fall. The graphic prints can be fun and dramatic but best for the average woman when paired with something more subdued. Leather and Lace: Not necessarily together, but both are trendy for fall. You'll see lots of leather skirts in all lengths making it perfectly appropri ate for all occasions. The lace looks are flirty and feminine and always welcome in the closet! Tuxedoes: This season the ladies are taking over the tux. Many of the designers were paying homage to YSL's 1966 Le Smoking tuxedo with their own take on the style. The look can be very sexy on the right woman. Shine and Gloss: Just as fall's makeup has a shiny and glossy metallic feel so do many of the fashionable looks. Choose carefully. Shine and gloss only your best assets! High Slits: Many of the long-flowing skirts add a super sexy appeal thanks to some thigh high slits. Definitely a superstar style!By Kay Renz Top Ten Trends for Fall! Velvet suit Shine in a tuxedo-feel suit bocaratontribune.com

The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Stonebridge, a recently 13 million dollar renovated facility, is known for its luxury, elegance and mag nificent new Clubhouse, as well as the beautifully manicured golf course with many lakes, lively tennis matches and a brand new chef putting out magical food If thats not enough, Stonebridge has added something new and exciting for its community The club has introduced the elegant art of fly-fishing at designated areas on three of its lakes. Nothis is definitely not the pole with a worm on the end fishing.this is SPORT fly-fishing with thousand-dollar, sophisticated rods and reels and tight sport fly-fishing rules. Must use manmade flies.one MUST de-barb all hooksits Catch & Release only one must police their area before leaving.. observe Thor Guard lightening warnings at all times areas on the lakes are cho sen for their location, distant from golf fairways and greens so as to never interfere with golfers play, and so on. Members have always been permitted to fish from the banks of their own private property but now have the choice of meeting in a designated public fishing area. Not everyone has a lake in their back yard says our own Tribune columnist Oleda Baker, OLEDA TALKS, so this gives everyone an opportunity. So how did our glam our columnist become involved with a sport mostly coveted by men? Over 30 years ago I went with a friend just to be nice and I got hooked, she says with a smile. I became an avid fly-fisherman long before it became so popular. I must admit I much prefer to fish walking a beautiful river or stream up North or our West while listen ing to the sound of the running water hitting against the boulders. But Ill take a lake any day if no river is available; and these lakes are beautiful. I introduced my husband, Richard DiMeola to flyfishing ten years ago being a golfer I wasnt sure it would take, but he fell in love with the art and beauty of it all and can roll cast better than meI love it! A dear friend at the club, Bob Riesner and I to gether, presented the idea to the board not knowing if it would fly. After a couple of months of honing the just right fishing spots, making maps and writing and rewriting the rules, we were successful. Bob is an avid all around sport fisherman so he added spin-casting and bait-casting. Thanks to our innovative youthfulthinking, flexible board we have one more activity at Stonebridge. After listening to Oledas passion, it makes me want to try it myself. She tells me the lakes are filled with fish such as Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Sunfish, Catfish, some up to 5 pounds. I think I will call her up!! Innovative Stone-Bridge Golf and Country Club does it again... FOOD REVIEW continued...center. Not pictured, but definitely a highlight of this dish were the crispy shallots that were placed on top of the steak. They were amazing! We decided to share the EggplantPortobello Tower ($22), which consisted of lightly breaded/fried eggplant and grilled portobello mushrooms drizzled with a balsamic glaze, roasted tomatoes and grilled zuc chini topped with a little Continued from page 22dollop of fresh hummus. Delicious! To end this very satisfying meal, we were brought out a beautiful Panna Cotta, ($7) -Italian Vanilla Custard with a trio of berries (Raspberry, Blackberry and Blueberry) with Grand Marnier and brown sugar. Simply divine!

Contact Mark Gualtieri 561.483.7030 The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Florida received a D on the March of Dimes 2011 Premature Birth Report Card, but the biggest news is the three-year, improving trend in its preterm birth rate. Our states preterm birth rate has improved this year. Were proud of this achievement and what we accomplished by working together with our partners for stronger, healthier babies, said Julie Samples, ARNP, MSN, March of Dimes Florida Chapter Program Services Committee Chair. We are determined to continue to find and implement solutions to improve the health of babies, such as improving access to health care coverage, helping women quit smoking, and preventing unnecessary early c-sections, so more babies can get a healthy start in life. Factors that contribute to preterm birth improved in Florida. It earned a star for: age of women of childbearing age who smoke term birth rate Since 2006, Floridas preterm birth rate has dropped to 13.5 percent. The rate of late preterm births is 9.6 percent; the rate of women smoking is 17.3 percent, and the rate of uninsured women is 28.5 percent. Quality improvement programs are key to lowering preterm birth rates, according to the March of Dimes. In Florida, March of Dimes supports programs that provide information and support to families with babies in a neonatal Florida receives D on 2011 March of Dimes Premature Birth Report CardNovember 17 is First-Ever World Prematurity Day intensive care unit. We have grant-funded programs in Hillsborough and Duval Counties that provide education and support to women who have had a stillbirth, infant death, or who have had a baby in a NICU, to help them reduce their risks for future preg nancies. And we have the Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait campaign, which is working to prevent nonmedically indicated deliveries before 39 weeks of pregnancy. A normal pregnancy lasts 40 weeks, but in recent years it has become more common to schedule deliveries early at 37 or 38 weeks. The United States received a C on the March of Dimes Report Card. Grades are based on comparing the state and the nations 2009 preliminary preterm birth rates with the March of Dimes 2020 goal of 9.6 percent of all live births. The U.S. preterm birth rate is 12.2 percent down nearly 5 percent from the peak of 12.8 percent in 2006. Preterm birth, birth before 37 weeks completed gestation, is a serious health problem that costs the United States more than $26 billion annually, according to the Institute of Medicine. It is the leading cause of newborn death, and babies who survive an early birth often face the risk of lifetime health challenges, such as breathing problems, cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities and others. Even babies born just a few weeks early have higher rates of hospitalization and illness than full-term infants. At least 39 weeks of pregnancy are critical to a babys health because many important organs, including the brain, are not completely developed until then. The March of Dimes says its 2020 preterm birth goal can be achieved by a combination of activities: implementing proven interventions to reduce the risk of an early birth, such as not smoking during pregnancy, getting preconception and early prenatal care, progesterone treatments for women who are medically eligible, avoiding multiples from fertility treatments, avoiding elective c-sections and inductions before 39 weeks of pregnancy, and by funding new research on prevention of preterm birth. This year, for the first time, a World Prematurity Day will be observed on November 17 by the March of Dimes along with organizations in Africa, Europe, and Australia. An estimated 13 million babies are born preterm and of those one million die as a result of their early birth, according to an October 2009 March of Dimes report on the global toll of preterm birth. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/ worldprematurityday. The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit orga nization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Officials at BRRH have announced that its audited financial results for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011 show the institution earned a profit of $4.5 million the second year in a row that its ledgers were in the black. The fiscal 2011 result actually reflects an improvement of $3.5 million over its prior year and a $125 million improvement in the hospitals financial results compared to fiscal 2008. We continue to see material progress is securing our financial base, said Jerry Fedele, president and CEO at Boca Regional. While challenges remain before us, it is extremely gratifying to see our focus and efforts result in a second consecutive profitable year and add to the remarkable turnaround we began just three short years ago. The hospitals financial results were impacted positively by growth in inpatient and outpatient activity as well as improvements in the management of length of stay. For the year, Boca Regional realized total operating revenues of $358 million on adjusted admissions of 40,630. Operating EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) was $28.5 million, a $0.4 million improvement over the prior year and a $64.1 million improvement compared to 2008. Though we find great satisfaction in our financial performance, our success is certainly not limited to the balance sheet, Fedele added. This past year saw us add significantly to our programmatic and technologic strengths as well as continue to receive noteworthy accolades regarding our quality of care and service. Fedele highlighted the hospitals acquisition of minimally invasive robotic surgery and a state-of the-art Hybrid Operating Room as examples of this burgeoning technology. He noted Boca that Regional again was desig nated by HealthGrades as the number one hospital in Florida for cardiac care and named a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence for the seventh year in a row. Only 50 of Boca Raton Regional Hospital notches second straight protable year the nations 5,000 hospitals have achieved that status. He also said the hospitals latest Press Ganey patient satisfaction scores show all nits at or above the 90th percentile nationally. By any measure, we are demonstrating that Boca Regional is thriving and is, indeed, one of the preeminent, advanced, tertiary medical centers in Florida, he said.

By Mike Gora Persall Smith, in his work Afterthoughts, wrote: There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. The question comes, what are we waiting for to really enjoy life? Is it something or someone or some magical event? Someone described the seven stages of mans life like this: spills, drills, thrills, bills, ills, pills, wills. If we are going to do something with our lives, now is the only time we have and now is our only window of opportunity. Ps 39:4-5 says "Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath." (NLT) Someone took the time to estimate how most of us use our time. If we live to 75 We will spend 3 years in school (24 hours a day); 7 years eating; 14 years working; 5 years driving a car and riding in an airplane; 5 years talking; 1 year recovering from sickness; 24 years sleeping and 15 years amusing ourselves. Now is the time to take a risk. Solomon, the wise king of Israel wrote, If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done. (Ecc. 11.4) There is no guarantee that bad things wont happen, even if we try with all our might to keep them from happening. We cannot change the weather, taxes, bills, final scores of ball games, peoples responses, the passing of time, or the inevitability of death. A Georgia farmer, ragged and barefooted, was standing on the steps of his tumbledown shack. A stranger stopped for a drink of water and just to pass the time of day he asked: "How is your cotton coming along?" he asked. "Aint got none," replied the farmer. "Did you plant any?" asked the stranger. "Nope," was the reply, "afraid of boll weevils." "Well," continued the stranger, "how is your corn?" "Didnt plant none," came the answer, "fraid there werent going to be no rain." The visitor persevered: "Well, how are your potatoes?" "Aint got none. Scairt of potato bugs." "Really, what did you plant?" pressed the stranger. "Nothin," was the calm reply, "I jest played safe." Stop worrying about things you cant control. Decide now to make the most of every day of your life. By Pr. Sandy Huntsman Pastor Sandy Huntsman Administrative Pastor Boca Glades Baptist Church www.bocaglades.orgNow Is the Time Which Court?Q: My husband and I were divorced in California five years ago. We have three children, now ages seven through 12. The California court set child support based on California law, and our incomes at that time. Since then I have re-married and moved to Buford, Georgia. My ex-husband has moved to Boca Raton; he started a new business, and appears to be doing much better financially. According to the kids, he lives in a huge home in a gated country club com munity, plays golf and drives a Mercedes. I want to ask for more child support. Do I have to do that in California? Can I sue in Georgia? Do I have to sue in Florida? What states law applies? What do I have to prove? Will he have to pay my attorneys fees for bringing him back to court? A: Since neither of you still lives in California, that states courts do not have continuing exclusive jurisdiction. Since it appears that your former husband does not live in Georgia, it would be your choice to go back to the California court, or to bring the action in the Florida court, in Palm Beach County, where he resides. Your first burden of proof, if you file in Florida, is to establish that there has been a permanent, material change in the financial circumstanc es of the two of you upon which the original child support was based. This may include an involuntary loss of income on your part, or an increase of the income of your former husband. Once you file your petition for modification, you will have all of the discovery tools available to you, provided by the Florida rules of procedure. He will have to provide the preliminary automatic discovery, under Family Law Rule 12.285; you can ask for his detailed financial information back to the date of the divorce, including information about his new business. If the Florida court finds that a permanent, material change has taken place in the basis for child support, it must apply the Florida child support guidelines, which can be found in Florida Statute 61.30. The court can award you an increase in child support retroactively, to the date of your petition. Your ex-husband will be credited for any payments he has made under the California order, in determining what he owes you after the modification. The general rules for attorneys fees in Florida would apply. Although you will become personally obligated for fees and costs to your Florida attorney, under your retainer agreement, the court may award you fees against the childrens father, if he is in a better position to pay fees than you are. Temporary fees as well as final fees can be awarded.

The short answer is every major muscles in your body. I don't mean to be a smart alec but the golf swing is a total body movement using all the muscles in a sequential motion. That's the key to a powerful golf swing is using your golf muscles in the right sequence. The most important golf muscles used in golf would be your core muscles. The engine to your golf swing is your core golf muscles. This is mainly your abdominals. And they need to be both strong AND flexible to create torque in your downswing. If you are lacking distance, this could be one area you should focus on.What Muscles Are Used In Golf Your leg muscles, specifically your quadriceps and hamstrings provide stability as well as power. Strong legs will keep you in balance helping with your consistency. Shoulder muscles help in setting the club at the top of your backswing consistently, as well as whipping the club through impact and beyond. Your lat muscles, especially your lead lat provides a lot of pulling power going into impact. This is one of the biggest muscles in your body, so making sure it is strong will be a huge advantage in golf.

Being the lowest ranked seed in these playoffs, the NSC Minnesota Stars went through a tough gauntlet of teams to get to this point. They had to go through the third-seeded FC Tampa Bay, the regular season champion Carolina RailHawks, and finally, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. The match tonight was tough for both teams. A rainstorm prior to the match caused the field to be very wet, making the ball tough to play with a simple touch or pass. Throughout the entirety of the match, the Strikers pressed forward trying to get the two equalizing goals to send the match into extra time. The first chance came early to the Strikers. Gerson Mayen, sent through on goal, had a chance to test the wet conditions. However, those same conditions caused his first touch to be heavy, and send the ball out of bounds for a goal kick. Shortly after, NSC Minnesota got an attacking free kick in the Strikers half. Luke Mulholland, who was consistently on the ball dictating tempo, play a ball into the box. Untouched, the ball look destined to fall into the back of the net. Matt Glaeser stepped up and dove to his left, putting enough on the ball to send it out of bounds. The first half ended with the only serious chance for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. After a resulting corner from a deflected pass, Mike Pala cio curled in a cross which found defender Toni Stahl in the back of the box. Stahl got his head on the ball, but it sailed just wide. The start of the second half continued to see the Strikers press high up and attack. Again, the NSC Minnesota Stars defense communicated well and broke up the Strikers' build up. The last real chance for the Strikers fell to Mayen. Walter Restrepo dribbled down the right wing and chipped the ball into the box, looking for someone. Mayen, through the Stars defense, got a foot onto the ball, but could not convert. The rest of the match saw the Strikers pressing forward and playing the ball into the box, but the Stars remained calm. They cleared each ball, kept the attacking movement out of the box, and clinched the first North American Soccer League title.
