The Rotary Club of Boca Raton West held their annual dictionary project this past week around three elementary schools in Boca Raton. The club gave a dic tionary to every single third grade student from Coral Sunset Elementary School, Del Prado Elementary School and Waters Edge Elementary. A total of 500 dictionaries were given to all the third graders from the three schools. This is a great way to give back to the community, these kids are our future and investing in their education is a great thing, said Angelica Blakely the person in charge of the project. The object of the Rotary Dictionary Project is to give every student a personal dictionary of their very own that will serve them at least through elementary and middle school. Many teachers see this as a key to better reading, speech, and writing. These skills will improve student performance in other subjects as well. Receiving the dictionaries from Rotary members is beneficial to students as well. The young people meet successful adults in their community who care enough about them to purchase these dictionaries and come to their school to present them personally. Rotary members then give a brief explanation of Rotary service in the community and around the world that gives students a lasting positive impression of Rotary and the ideal of service. More Pictures of the project can be seen on pages 22 and 26.Rotary Club of Boca Raton West Goes Back To School TheBocaRatonTribune.com Read...

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor Ive tried to live a fairly non-toxic life. I dont drink alcohol to any great degree. I dont smoke, and prefer a smoke-free environment. I try to eat nutritious food and dont abuse drugs, prescription type or otherwise. So it was with some degree of surprise that I was caught red-handed by the self-checkout machine at Walmart a few days ago. Y ou see, Ive had some kind of cold or upper respiratory virus. Its worst symptom was a dry cough. So I stopped in to get a bottle of cough medicine. I purchased several other items, and happened to scan the cough medicine last. The ma chine beeped, shut down, and a message came on the screen that said I needed authorization for something. A clerk came over, looked at me, reset the register and left. I assume she wanted to make sure I was an adult making the cough medicine purchase. I thought it was something of an overreaction until I went home and checked cough medicine abuse on the Internet. There is an entire section just for that. I guess Im not up on the situation here. I have bought cough medicine since I was young and never got carded for it. But apparently, things have changed. As one Internet story said, more than three million teenagers are abusing cough medicines and cold and flu tablets. Robiting" as teens call it, is one of the most common ways to get high. In the early 2000s, the story said, many drug experts believed that the cough syrup fad was on the decline. However, the opposite scenario oc curred, as usage kept increasing. A 2006 study found that 4 percent of eighth graders and 7 percent of 12th graders had tried cough medicines to get high. Between 1999 and 2004, usage increased tenfold, with 75 percent of abusers between ages 9 and 17 years old. About seven percent of all drug-related emergency room visits in 2004 involved dextromethorphan, the hallucinogenic ingredient in cough syrups that teens seek, and 44 percent of those visits were about non-medical usages of that drug. It was also implicated in 14 percent of suicide attempts treated in ERs. Dextromethorphan, or "DXM," is celebrated in teen culture. Some of rapper Pimp C's most popular music was about "Sizzurp," and his work was at the top of the Billboard charts when he died of a drug overdose involving DXM in December 2007. The syrup I bought contains Dextromethorphan, the label says. Its purpose is to suppress coughing. And that is why I purchased it. But kids know why I didnt, that DXM is a synthetically produced cousin of codeine and morphine. It is an antitussin or cough suppressant that works by reducing the sensitivity of the brain's cough control center. It replaced codeine in over-the-counter medicines in the 1970s. DXM is an ingredient in over 120 common overthe-counter medicines. Most combination drugs for colds and flus contain DXM. In fact, any medicine with "tuss" in its name contains DXM. But it is also illicitly over the Internet as a white powder that teenagers inject into their veins. "Syrup-heads" drink entire bottles of cough syrup as quickly as they can without vomiting. They may take 20 to 30 pills containing DXM at one time, especially at raves and dance clubs. The drug takes between 15-30 minutes to take effect if taken by mouth. If injected as a powder mixed with wa ter, the effect is quicker. Hallucinations, dissocia tive experiences and feelings of euphoria can last up to six hours. I had no idea this was going on. If there are any organizations that are helping to halt this addiction, please notify this newspaper.Cough medicine.

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 If you ever get lost on any journey, obviously you shall do all you can to find your way back. If you get stuck somewhere, along the way, youll inevitably try everything possible in order to get away and resume your journey and accomplish your plans! Unfortunately, many who face unpleasant life experiences, tend to hold on to them indefinitely, instead of discarding them at the earliest possible moment. Whenever such is the case, they inflict unnecessary, harmful pain upon themselves, often with paralyzing, even lethal, consequences. And whoever is near them often suffer from the spilled-over negativity! Thats the picture of a person who remains on the grip of past unpleasantness, enslaved by bad memories and incapable of moving forward. The corrosive effects of such experience can be avoided altogether. Certain memories, whether good or bad, will remain with a person as long as that indi vidual lives. Even then, they need not become dominant in that persons experience, especially when they can be replaced by pleasant, positive thoughts. Its much easier to seek aid when one is faced with physical pain and discomfort. A person will seek a physician, purchase a medication, enter some form of therapy all to rid the self from those unpleasant obstacles. What is unfortunate, though unnecessary, is when several people hold on too long to bad memories, not measuring in advance the harmful effects they can cause, becoming impediments that contribute to a mediocre existence. But that need not be so. Y ou can replace bad memories by new, positive thoughts, and with plans of action that will keep your mind occupied with the possibilities of achievable advantages. Any human life, to thrive and to enjoy meaning, needs to delete permanently all the emotional junk that so easily accumulates in a life, causing that immense baggage to paralyze its carrier. Seek the freedom from all past and present negativity in order to soar into new heights, to achieve healthy objec tives, and have the satisfaction of actions that can impact other lives!Bad Memories Can Harm! I know a lot of you out there are thinking about the upcoming holidays. Well, so am I. But I am a little bewildered by the rapid passing of time. 2011 is nearly over, and the long-awaited year 2012 is almost upon us. Y es, I know Thanks giving is just a week away. Then we launch into the Christmas and Hanukkah season, which is really the busiest of the year. Before we know it, it will be New Y ears Eve, and we will be celebrating the arrival of 2012. A lot of people want 2012 to9 get here so they can take part either in the re-election effort of President Barack Obama, or the effort to choose a replacement for him from the Republican Party. Im not going to talk about my feelings yet. Its much too early, and there are still a lot of people angling for a spot on the ticket. I can comment about the recent announcement by Boca Raton Councilwoman Constance Scott that she is running for re-election. I dont know if she will have an opponent, but she certainly has to be congratulated for doing an excellent job during her first term. As a council member, she has worked tirelessly on a number of projects, including the city budget, which seems to get more and more difficult each year to resolve. Scott is also chair woman of the Community Redevelopment Agency, where a number of things have happened -most notably, the com pletion of the downtown pedestrian promenade on Palmetto Park Road and the purchase of the Wildflower property at the east end of Palmetto Park Road. Well wait and see what happens now that one name has been tossed into the race for political office in Boca Raton. Remember, the city election is in March, so it does not coincide with the presidential election in November. However, voters are reminded to cast ballots in January in the Florida Presidential Primary. Remember, this was the election that got kicked around and moved to early in the year to beat the primary in New Hampshire. In the process, the Republicans seem to have alienated the national GOP, which may reflect itself on Election Day in January. Speaking of the election, lets not forget that Lynn University will host the final presiden tial debate of the season in October of 2012. That likely means that Obama will be coming to Boca Raton unless the Dem ocrats pick another can didate, which is not probable. The GOP hopeful will also be in the city. We are sure that South Florida and Boca Raton in particular will be visited by a number of presidential hopefuls during 2012. It hap pened in 2008 and 2004. And we can only hope that there will not be a repeat of the 2000 Presidential Election debacle in Palm Beach County when it comes time to count ballots. As long as we are counting, dont forget that the Boca Raton Tribune will mark its second anniversary in 2012. That will be an event to remember. Here again, it seems like only yesterday when we published edition 00 the prototype for the paper you are reading today. And if you look at the front, youll notice that this is edition 74. No doubt we will also mark the arrival of the 100th edition when it comes out next year. Y es, there is a lot to celebrate and a lot to look forward to in 2012.Dont look now, 2012 is right around the corner

Schmidt College of Arts and Letters recently hosted the Michael and Madelyn Sa varick High School Honor Choral Festival and V ocal Competition. The festival coincided with Irish Composer Michael McGlynns first visiting residency to FAU as the 2011/2012 Dorothy F. Schmidt Eminent Scholar in the Arts at FAU. More than 70 honor choral students from local high schools participated in the festival including: Coral Springs, Monarch, Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale, Sagemont School, Miami Charter School of the Arts, West Boca, Lake Worth, and Jupiter. The high school students joined the FAU ensembles in a Side-BySide performance of McGlynns compositions: Celtic Mass, for mixed chorus (Patricia P. Fleitas, conductor), and Evoca tions for Womens Chorus (Stacie L. Rossow, conduc tor). When I was told of the works of mine that were chosen to be performed here tonight, I was amazed because these works are not easy, said Michael McGlynn. It may not strike these students for 20 years, but this has been such an important day for them. Having toured the entire world with my own choir, Anna, I can tell you that some of the singing and performances from the choir and soloists this week have matched the best in the world. The first place winner of the vocal competition was Nicole Steinberg from Pine Crest School. She was awarded $250. Two sec ond places were awarded, with a $125 prize each, to Nelson Y sabel of Coral Springs High School and Madi Moore of Jupiter High School.

If we asked a student body or did some man on the street interviews how many individuals would know what happened on that date and who the president was? Or who was the Prime Minister of Eng land or the Chancellor of Germany? This date isnt even a national holiday and our ignorance of it is a disgrace and must be addressed if the United States of America is to survive. Help Us Reboot America is a campaign to save the U.S.A. It is a methodology that preserves an American Art Form by bringing it to students as an educational and entertaining after school program that also teaches pride, patriotism and sacrifice for love of country. It creates green jobs by employing talented, dedicated musicians who live in the communities these jobs are created and funds are generated and donated to our underfunded music departments who also benefit, not some cigar smoking promoter or over paid Diva but still provides First Class entertainment while educating. To launch this program nationally we are trying to develop a word of mouth national campaign to remember as a Nation at 48 minutes to the hour (7:48 a.m. Hawaii time) the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii by viewing this Y ouTube video simultaneously around the na tion and the world. It is the Perfect Plan. It is simply an idea of people working together for a higher cause, just as we did on December 7th, 1941The December 7th Scenario BOCA RATON -Connie Siskowski, RN, PhD, of Boca Raton became a Woman of Grace at the 12th annual Women of Grace luncheon of the Bethesda Hospital Foundation November 9 at the Ritz Carlton in Manala pan. Siskowski earned the award for her volunteerism and for making a difference for caregiving youth and their families in Palm Beach County. Siskowski, a national expert on child caregiving, said there are at least 10,000 children locally who have these adult responsibili ties. Siskowski is the first person in the nation to create a comprehensive and successful support system for caregiving youth. The Caregiving Y outh Project, a program of the American Association of Caregiving Y outh (AACY), facilitates skills building/ support groups in middle schools, offers workshops on life skills, conducts home visits to link families to help and provides academic support as well as other resources to ease some of the responsibility and give caregiving youth the chance to be kids. It has established a Continuing Care Divi sion for its 200 caregiving youth in high school as well as a Bereavement Transition Program for those students who experience the death of their care receiver. To date, it has provided services to nearly 500 caregiving youth and their families and more than 98 percent of its members stay in school. We need healthcare, education and the com munity to come together to recognize, reach out, and support caregiving youth to safeguard their education, their health and well-being along with their futures," says Siskowski. In 2009 Siskowski re-Siskowski chosen as Boca Ratons Woman of GraceConnie Siskowski ceived the Purpose Prize and a lifetime Ashoka Fellows award for the Caregiving Y outh Project. Ashoka recognizes leading social entrepreneurs with innovative solutions to social problems. In 2010 she received the Distinguished Alumna Award from Johns Hopkins Uni versity and earlier in 2011 AACY received the Heroes in Medicine Community Outreach Award from the Palm Beach County Medical Society.

At the park in West Boca Raton, teenag ers from the Boca Raton Composite Squadron carried the Colors alongside Color Guards from the Marine Corps, Women in the Military, Jewish War V ets, VFW, the Boy Scouts and the Sherriffs Department. We are so pleased that these kids made the effort to be here today, said World War II veteran Ralph Shear of the V eterans Coalition of South Florida said. Guest Speaker, 12-yearold Cadet Senior Airman Miller Caldwell, told the crowd why he was proud of his country stating that, America is a strong and powerful nation, and that Our strength isnt found in our numbers but in our resolve. My fa ther was in the US Navy, as was his father and his father before him. Both of my brothers are enrolled in a Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps in high school. I am currently serving in the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program. Immediately follow ceremonies at V eterans Memorial Park, the squadron proceeded to events at Stratford Court, a Boca Raton senior living community.

Boca Police received a report that two people in a small dingy had come ashore at 750 South Ocean Boulevard. Officers arrived and found the dingy and two men, identified as Michael Ayres and Steffon Moore. The men were treated at the scene by Boca Raton Fire Rescue and then transported to Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Ayres told officers he and Moore left Islamorada on Saturday, November 12, just after noon, and were heading to Bimini. Ayres added that at some point late Saturday evening, the boat began taking on water and after several hours they had to abandon ship. Police said Ayres told them they were able to gather some supplies and set off in the lifeboat. After spending several days at sea, they washed up on shore. Barring any additional information, police said, members of the Boca Ra ton Police Services Department have concluded their involvement in this incident.Castaways in lifeboat wash ashore in Boca Raton BOCA RATON Two members of the Boca Ra ton City Council Constance Scott and Anthony Majhess are up for re-election in March of 2012.

Scott told the audience at the Mizner Park restaurant that downtown is great. She said that if she wins a second three-year term, she will continue to concentrate on economic development and job creation. Her husband, Tom, was by her side when she made her announcement. Scott was elected to the council for the first time in 2009. She is employed as a business banker for Citibank and has more than 20 years of experience in finance and economic development. A graduate of the University of Michigan with a bachelors degree in economics, she served Palm Beach County as an economic development specialist.

Boca Police Safety TipBoca Raton Police BlotterThe Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL BOCA RATON The occupant of a canoe found overturned Nov. 6 in the Intracoastal Waterway behind 690 Golden Harbor Drive was located two days later unharmed. The morning of Nov. 8, police said, the canoeist, Kirt Rusenko, came to the police station and identified the canoe. Rusenko told officers he was in the Intracoastal Waterway Sunday when a reckless boater sped by him, capsizing the canoe. Rusenko said he was unable to right the canoe so he swam to shore and left. The capsized canoe was located about 3:10 p.m. Nov. 6. A resident told officers that at about 3 p.m., he saw a white male in his 50s wearing a tan floppy hat paddling a 15foot orange canoe southbound in the Intracoastal Waterway. About ten minutes later, the witness went back outside onto his patio and saw the ca noe overturned in the water and the occupant was nowhere to be found. The witness said he did not hear the male call out in distress or even see him go into the water. Police searched the area and spoke with the residents in the surrounding area. Another witness also saw the male and gave police a similar account of events.

It was composed for orchestra, a five-part choir and four or five soloists. One of the few works in which Bach used Latin text (another being the great Mass in B minor), the Magnificat was composed to be first performed at V espers on Christmas Day 1723, at the Church of St Nicholas, Leipzig 275 years ago. Bach's great art is showcased in the structure of the work. Abandoning the Baroque staple of rec itatives and da capo arias, he created twelve sections of paired texts, with the joyous choral fugue of No.VII "Fecit potentiam" at the centre. In addition, the final chorus repeats material from the beginning, echoing the music as it does with the words "As it was in the beginning" (Sicut erat in principio). The cyclical architecture of the work complements the concise writing, making the -hour work one of the most easily accessible of Bach's cantatas. Bassis Carol Symphony features 3 movements. The first movement is a fantasia on a popular Ukrainian carol melody; the style is impressionistic, by turns melancholy and vigorous. The second movement is a setting of the Irish Wexford Caro and the third a rhythmic theme and variations on Tomorrow shall be my dancing day. Corellis Christmas Concerto, Corelli's most fa mous work, was composed in 1712. His concerti grossi have often been popular in Western culture. For example, a portion of the Christmas Concerto, is in the soundtrack of the film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. He is also referred to frequently in the novel Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL For those of you who have been patiently waiting for Raffaele's to open, I've got good news: the long awaited, much anticipated opening of Raffaele Ristorante in Royal Palm Place has finally arrived! Chef/Owner Raffa ele Esposito took his time to see his vision through as he totally transformed the space that had previously been occupied as Argentango into something uniquely his own. This new space is open and airy and is decorated in soothing, neutral tones of beige and brown with italian tile floors and dangling mother of pearl pendant lighting. The large windows and sliding glass door provide an excellent view of the lighted monument tower at night. A nice selection of music could be heard throughout the restaurant which added to the overall ambience. Raffaele, a successful restauranteur in NY C for 20+ years, decided to move to South Florida and bring his culinary expertise with him. His signature dishes are representative of Naples and Southern Italy and his wine list, primarily comprised of CA and Italian wines, is quite extensive. I had the pleasure of dining at Raffaele's last night and wanted to share with you some of the highlights of the evening. As we entered the restaurant, we approached the hostess stand and were warmly greeted and escorted to a nice private table. Shortly after being seated, our server, Jean, came over to introduce himself, presented us with a wine list and offered to tell us about their appetizer and dinner specials to aid us in deciding what wines we might be interested in selecting. We appreciated that gesture and thought that was a very nice touch. I started out with a lovely glass of Lyeth Pinot Noir, CA ($12) and my husband chose the Capone Super Tuscan Reserve ($14). Both were wonderful choices. A basket of assorted freshly baked breads wasz delivered to our table that had been made in house in their wood-fired oven. We informed Jean that we were interested in trying a number of items and taking the initiative, like a true professional, he had each item brought to our table already split in the back. Impressive. First up was the Capesante Con Shitaki ($13)grilled scallops with leeks, shitake mushrooms and fresh herbs. The scallops were tender and the white wine reduction was light and flavorful. The shitaki mushrooms were the star of this dish in my opinion. Next up was the Lenticchie Con Riso ($10)Lentil Soup with Italian rice. The lentils were cooked perfectly and was packed with flavor. Next we had the Risotto Con Porcini Ricotta ($20)Italian rice with porcini mushroom, ricotta and parmesan. The risotto was hearty and I especially enjoyed the combination of porcini mushrooms, the ricotta, parmesan and the fresh basil that topped the dish. We selected the Steak Pizzaiola ($30) for our main entree, one of the specials that Jean had informed us about. The steak was cooked in their wood-fired oven, sliced and delicately placed atop a freshly prepared tomato sauce and accompanied by a spinach and cheese encrusted fritter (for lack of a better word) which was very unique and very tasty. Lastly, we somehow managed to save room to try two of Raffaele's wonderful desserts: Tiramisu ($8) Homemade with la dyfingers, coffee, Kahlua and mascarpone cheese (simply, TDF: to die for!) and Torta di Ricotta ($8) Homemade Italian cheesecake with a delicate orange sauce. Now in case you have never had Italian cheesecake made with ricotta, be forewarned that this is a completely different taste profile than your typical American cheese cake. It's quite unique and perhaps an acquired taste. We were pleasantly surprised when Raffa ele himself came out at the end of our meal and brought with him some of his very own homemade orangecello. He makes both limoncello and the orange one. Watch out folks, this stuff is uber strong and will knock your socks off if you're not paying attention! Great flavor and a wonderful way to end an exquisite meal. Raffaele Ristorante is located at 508 Via de Palmas in Royal Palm Place. 561-392-1110.

It is a strange, disturbing, unsettling story of a maniacal cult leader and his submissive flock. In her feature film debut in a starring role, Elizabeth Olsen is the title character of a film that is also the debut of writerdirector Sean Durkin. Elizabeth Olsen is the younger sister of the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley. She is 22, but she looks younger, like the wayward teenage waif she portrays. The story opens in a bucolic setting in upstate New Y ork. A group of young men eat dinner while the women patiently await their turn. It is quite clear from the start that the females have inferior, submissive status in this society, which is sternly ruled by the wiry, alternately seductive and menacing Patrick (John Hawkes). Patrick brings to mind the mad but beguiling tyrants Charles Manson and Jim Jones. Martha, who has been re-named Marcy May by Patrick, knows there is something wrong in this twisted family, yet she seems powerless to escape its clutches. But escape she does, on foot, under cover of darkness, with other cult members in hot pursuit. In this sense MMMM is an escape thriller, but there is more to it than that. Martha reaches a pay phone and calls her only surviving relative; her Martha Marcy May Marlene Explores the Horror of a Cultsister Lucy (Sarah Paulson), whom she hasnt seen since disappearing two years ago. Lucy lives in a large, beautiful, lakefront house with her British architect husband Ted (Hugh Dancy). Lucy and Ted seem to live a charmed live, but it is not all it seems. MMMM is roiled by threatening undercurrents of trouble at every turn. Martha is a deeply wounded, emotionally-scarred young woman. Because of the horrors she has endured she exhibits inappropriate behavior, much of it sexually-rooted. The dark secret of the cult is revealed in horrific flashbacks. Shes just a picture, thats all, sings Patrick in a song he has written for Marcy May, his most recent conquest. Its a chilling lyric that demonstrates the utter contempt Patrick has for his female subjects, even while professing to love and protect them. I wont get into specifics any further, except to say this is a horror story in the final analysis; a horror story of the human spirit most perverted. MMMM is difficult to endure and its finale is deliberately abrupt and inconclusive. One thing is undeniable: it is a breakout performance for Elizabeth Olsen, a performer all her young life. She is by degrees woman and child, victim and vamp, strong yet powerless. If you have the patience and fortitude, this film will rattle and haunt you. Three and a half stars John Hawkes and Elizabeth Olsen in Martha Marcy May Marlene Sarah Paulson and Elizabeth Olsen in Martha Marcy May Marlene

Levitz Plaza, the longcrumbling, nearly vacant eyesore in Boca Ratons north end, is no longer there. Alliance Residential Company razed the massive structure. Twenty months from now, it is scheduled to complete a $62 million luxury apartment community consisting of 384 residential units called Broadstone at North Boca Village. Alliance recently hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at the 17-acre parcel at 7801 North Federal Highway. Those who attended were surprised to see the former plaza building reduced to rubble. This is an exciting new infill luxury residential community that will be the centerpiece for the redevelopment of the North Federal Highway corridor, which links the cities of Boca Raton and Delray Beach, said Michael Ging, managing director of development for Florida. Our future residents will enjoy the latest in amenities and features that define luxury living while being within close proximity to Boca Ratons beautiful beaches and downtown Mizner Park, as well as the exciting night life on Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach. Ging said the deal closed Sept. 29 and he anticipates initial lease-up to begin in the third quarter of 2012, with final completion expected in March 2013. Company and city officials, including Mayor Levitz Plaza demolished; construction of $62M apartment complex starts Rendering of Broadstone at North Boca Village.

Michael Ging, managing director of development for Florida for Alliance Residential Company, addresses the crowd at the groundbreaking ceremony. Susan Whelchel, Deputy Mayor Susan Haynie, Councilwoman and Community Redevelopment Agency Director Constance Scott and Councilman Anthony Majhess were among those who attended the ceremony. Upon completion, Ging said, Broadstone at North Boca Village will offer one, twoand three-bedroom units averaging 997 square feet, along with optional attached and detached garages. The apartment homes will feature a complete stainless-steel appliance package, full-size washers and dryers, twotone designer paint, granite countertops and expansive 9-foot ceilings Levitz Plaza, a once thriving shopping plaza in north Boca Raton, has been on the skids for years. Plans were approved in 2006 for a Mizner Parkstyle mixed use development called North Boca Village, also containing a new structure for the Caldwell Theatre. The development was crushed by a falling economy and ended up in bank foreclosure earlier this year. North Boca Village was to be a mix of residential (49 townhouses and 336 condominiums), retail (100,600 square feet), office (53,990 square feet) and restaurant (40,000 square feet) uses, with roads connecting the buildings much like Mizner Park. It also included the theater. The original developer planned to raze the plaza after allowing the Caldwell, formerly located in that building, to build a new theater slightly north of the Levitz site. That structure was finished in 2007, but North Boca Village was never even started and the developer went bankrupt. Plans say recreational amenities for Broadstone include a centralized park area, tot lot, putting green, pool with cabanas and a gazebo. There will also be a two-story clubhouse (over 7,000 square feet) slated to contain a fitness center, game room, club room, business/conference rooms and leasing offices. Alliance will blend the traditional Spanish Mission-style architecture of the community with modern amenities designed to appeal to a wide demographic, including a fitness center with the latest computerized aerobic and weight training equipment, yoga studio, business center, video gaming room, demonstration kitchen, cyber caf, movie theater, personal massage salon, wine and cigar room, putting green and resort-style swimming pool area with cabanas and an outdoor pool pavilion with bar, fire place and billiard tables.

BOCA RATON, FL.-TransMedia Group said it will go where no PR firm has gone beforeinto the private lives of CEOs to find a more stress-relieving balance between work and home. With everyones working harder today than ever before, its critically important to be able to balance the spiraling demands of career and family, especially for todays besieged CEO, said Tom Madden, TransMedia Groups CEO (www.transmediagroup. com). To help businesses cope with unprecedented levels of stress caused by home and work imbalances, TransMedia has hired a Work-Home Balance Specialist to offer therapy to busy CEOs, their spouses and children. Expectations today are lofty for self starters, entrepreneurs and CEOs, said Meredith Walt, TransMedias newly-appointed Work-Home Balance Specialist. Workdays can be all consuming for months, sometimes years without much breathing room, let alone family time. Sales, marketing, suppliers, employees, quality assurance and payroll are some of the stressors CEOs encounter daily. Unfortunately, so are unhappy family members, she said. Agitated spouses and neglected children put additional weight on the scale, often tipping a healthful work-home balance so critical for success in both arenas, according to Walt. TransMedia believes providing in-home, on-site support and therapeutic services for executives and their families can drastically reduce tension in the home, allow for practical ways to increase quality time at home, without compromising necessary time and mental focus at work. I help the spouse process and understand business demands while assisting CEOs to remember what theyre working so hard for their family and a quality of life. Having helped troubled clients, from teens to financial tycoons, for over a decade, together with her official qualifications to practice both individual and family therapy from her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Boston University, make Walt a powerful resource, said Madden. Collaborating with courts, schools, the Department of Juvenile Justice, the foster care process, teen parents, and substance abuse facilities has given Meredith a rich and deep experience bank from which to help CEOs and their families to cope with the stress and long hours on the job, Madden said. According to Madden, one of her CEO clients said Meredith gave his spouse and children the support and tools they needed to stop feeling resentful over his time away from home and things got better for everyone.Public Relations can help stressed CEOs at home is idea behind Transmedia Groups new therapy service for busy execs

Columnists The Boca Raton TribuneBy Rick Warren Our great-grandfathers called it the Holy Sabbath; our grandfathers, the Sabbath; our fathers, Sunday. But today we simply refer to it as, the weekend. Do you feel rested after a typical weekend? If you are like most people, probably not. A friend of mine accuses me of behaving as if I were a human doing instead of a human being. We live in a world in which most of us understand exceptionally well how to work hard and play hard, but it seems that we have forgotten how to rest. The word Sabbath literally means, REST. God provided the pattern for rest in His list of values to live by in Exodus 20. We know them as the Ten Commandments. Fourth on the list is the admonition to observe the Sabbath as a holy day. But the seventh day is a day of Sabbath rest before the Lord your God (Exodus 20:10). In His wisdom, God understood that given the opportunity, mankind would work itself to death or play and entertain itself to death but never recognize the importance of pausing to replenish our energies and reinvigorate our spirits. So He incorporated the command to rest in His top 10 rules for living. Every seventh day, from Gods perspective the point of view of the Creator should be set aside for: 1. REST: Frederick Taylor was an ambitious young executive in a large steel mill during the Spanish-American war in the 1890s. In those days, there were no cranes to load steel bars onto the railroad cars. It was backbreaking manual labor. Taylor instituted a system where a whistle was blown after the men had carried iron for 12 minutes. They then were to sit down and rest. After three-minute rest, the whistle was blown again as a signal for the men to resume work. The result? The amount of iron loaded per day increased by an amazing 276 percent! Rather than wasting time, the required rest actually multiplied efficiency and productivity. 2. REFLECTION: A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences (Proverbs 22:3). How can you know where you want to go unless you take time to look back on where youve been, realistically assess where you are, and then develop a plan that will take you where you want to go? Were you successful this past week in your work? In your marriage? As a father? In your personal life? Are you staying fit physically? How are you doing emotionally, or intellectually, or spiritually? We cannot even start to answer these questions if we continue to plunge into our daily activities, without giving ourselves the opportunity to pause and reflect on what we are doing and why. 3. RESTORATION: No battery will last for very long without being recharged. Elastic will lose its resiliency and strength unless it is allowed to return to its un-stretched state. Human beings are much the same. We need the stress of work, exercise, and pressure to motivate us, to keep us from vegetating. They help to give us purpose, meaning and direction. But we need regular periods of personal restoration physically, emotionally and spiritually. We need to replenish our energy and clarify our vision before returning to the battle.Edited and adapted from a column by Rick Warren. He is the author of the highly acclaimed, best-selling book, The PurposeDrive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life.Why the sabbath is not a religious idea

When my great grandfather Hyman came to America there was no welfare, no un employment, nothing in his language from the country he was from. Hyman came over with nothing. He found a job making shoes, and doing construction at first. Hyman knew he had to eat and so he had to WORK. He had to LEARN to speak ENGLISH as everything was in English if you wanted a job. There was not a lot of free time, hours were long at work and everyone worked hard. So, when work was over family time was very im portant. Dinner time became a time to finally sit with your family and friends. Everyone could talk about their day, their problems, their ideas; they shared things to gether. Life was hard and they helped each other. There was no TV time at night, no telephones, and no computers, so people had no choice but to talk to each other. People felt bonded together through this common everyday experience of communicating. Everyone was from somewhere, Ireland, Germany, Russia, etc. and yet they were all striving for the same goals; to be American! The many languages, customs, ideas that people brought with them from different countries blended together into a melting pot and they were PROUD to call themselves Americans! Over the past decade the nations racial and ethnic mix shifted, driven by Hispanics and Asians. The census sta tistics released from the 2010 count show that Hispanics account for more than half the nations growth. Asians experienced double digit increases. And although many people come to America for the right reasons; economic success, religious freedom, etc., a lot of people are not coming to America to be American. They are coming to America to bring their customs and language to change America. We are not all Americans anymore. They come for many reasons, but they expect our freedoms to be given to them. A lot of people feel it is their right to get money if they cannot work; it is their right to have money for food. It is their right to have a place to live. It is their right to be handed things from the government. But, look around and the funny thing is they are never satisfied. Y ou see, satisfaction comes from productive work. Hyman knew this, and after a long hard day, he was always proud. Hyman knew that he was making his dreams come true every day. He was in America, he was with his family, and he had the ability to pursue his hap piness. And Happiness was being in America. Happiness is West Boca as we are certainly a melting pot of people, cultures, and ideas. We need to stir the pot, so that we may have success tomorrow.Americas Melting PotMichael 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 email@example.com. By Mike Gora While we all have a general responsibility as human beings, parents, and grandparents to protect the interests of children at all times, whether relatives or not, divorce lawyers have a special duty provided by Florida Statute. We are reporters who, by definition, just as in the case of physicians, have a duty to report circumstances that appear dangerous to children to police authorities, or other agencies which protect children. Our obligation to protect children is even greater than our obliga tion to our own clients. Of course after reporting our own clients we would have a conflict of interests and must withdraw from the representation. So it was with shock and amazement that I joined you in observing the lack of judgment evidenced by Joe Paterno, the president of Penn State University, Graham B. Spanier and others at Penn State over the last 10 days. I have no sympathy for any of them. Of all of them, it appears that Paternos role of going through the motions to protect his long time friend and his own butt was only second in order of despicability. Paterno, a lifelong coach and teacher of young men of college age apparently thought far less of young boys than he did of buff young athletes who could create and preserve his legend. But our legal system is quite capable of sorting this out. People will be imprisoned from the perpetrator on down. It is a shame that this process goes on now, years after it could have been stopped by Paterno and his peers. How many abused children would it have take for Paterno to report to the police, one more? A dozen? The Herman Cain vs. the Women of America case is far more difficult to pursue legally, so it is the court of public opinion that will have to give the ultimate ruling. As lawyers, we all know that a case which stands on She said, He said evidence has always been very difficult to prove. In this day with all of America being educated on the forensics of criminal investigation through CSI and the rest, it has become much harder. On the one hand, as odd as it seems, there have always been men and women who come out and make stuff up to achieve their 15 minutes of fame. The folks who do that now have a worldwide stage upon which to play rather than in their local newspaper or TV outlet of recent memory. On the other hand there are people who believe that they are so well thought of and even beloved by all or a significant part of the American people that they believe that all they have to do is say no and they will be believed. Usually, however, as the saying goes, Y ou cannot fool all of the people all of the time. So the Cain train will chug on into soon forgotten political history with several 15 minutes of fame behind it, not because of this war of the sexes but because Cains campaign was under funded, ineffectively staffed, and led by a person who has demonstrated a lack of the type of knowledge necessary to become president. In the long run the female attack on Cain may actually keep the train running a few more weeks rather than de-rail it immediately. Clearly, if you become a victim of sexual abuse, it would be a good idea to document your claim immediately, try to secure physical evidence, and refuse to put a confidentiality clause in any settlement agreement you enter..

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune One phrase being thrown around by the owners during the lockout has been "completive balance." While making the league more completive is great in theory, is there really a way to make it more competitive? The answer is yes and no. Whether the owners like it or not, it is easier to build a dynasty in basketball than it is in the other major team sports. One player in basketball can dominate the game more than any player in any other sport. (Although living in Indianapolis, there is a quarterback that is making me re-think this.) In Baseball you have nine starters and usually a player gets four at bats. In football, there are twenty-two starters on offense and defense total. In basketball there are five players on the court at once for a team. This is why you see more dynasties in basketball. Look at the previous teams that have won multiple championships since the start of the 90's and you see an all-time great. Jordan, to Olajuwan, to Duncan, to Shaq/Kobe, and you see why there are only two teams over the past twenty years that have only won one championship. (Those are Detroit and Dallas.) Y ou usually need an all time top five player at a position to win a championship. The way competitive balance is not fair is when the Lakers can spend about ninety million year in and year out. The luxury tax was around 70 million and that was high. When it was introduced the luxury tax level started at 52.9 million in 2002-03. The Lakers team salary was at 62.7 million that sea son. Compare that to last year and they were at 90.4 million compared to a 70 million dollar luxury tax threshold. It is interesting how the NBA's current proposal affects competitive balance. The NBA wants stiffer penalties for teams that go over the luxury tax threshold four out of five seasons. This is where the argument for competitive balance comes into play. There are only four teams that did this according to the league under the previous collective bargaining agreement. These teams are the Celtics, Lakers, Mavericks, and Knicks. Three out of those four have won a championship. This is the argument the owners have been using, and they do have a point. The counter to this argument is the Spurs, who have won four championships since the last shortened season. That is where the argument for one player being so dominant comes into play with the greatest power forward ever playing for the Spurs. Would the leagues proposal of evening out salaries, make the league so competitive that each team has a shot to go far in the playoffs? No, because some teams know what they are doing, and some do not. It really is amazing how teams like the Clippers are constantly bad, and the Jazz have not had back-to-back losing records since the 81-82 and 82-83 seasons. However, history shows, the more money you spend the better your chances of winning, but trying to even out the money, does not solve it's competitive balance problem. There is a middle ground to this argument, just like there is a middle ground to the negotiations between the owners and players. NBA Lockout: Competitive balance: Myth or fact, or both? Miami, FL Senior running back Alfred Morris became Florida Atlantic University's all-time leading rusher in Saturday's 41-7 Shula Bowl loss to FIU in Miami. The Pensacola native gained 110 yards on 21 carries to achieve 3,158 career rushing yards topping Charles Pierre's mark of 3,069 rushing yards. FIU scored 21 secondquarter points to build a 31-0 halftime advantage. A 12-yard touchdown run by Kedrick Rhodes gave the Panthers a 17-0 advantage with 9:32 left in the second quarter. One minute later, Jake Medlock completed a nine-yard pass to Willis Wright. Then, the hosts wrapped up the productive quarter with a 97yard punt return by T.Y Hilton just before halftime. The Owls found the end zone early in the third quarter when redshirt junior quarterback Graham Wilbert hooked up with redshirt freshman wide out Marcus Cunningham for a 22yard touchdown. It was first touchdown for the Lakeland native. Cunningham hauled in six passes for 76 yards, while freshman wide receiver William Dukes hauled in four receptions. Paul Moore had three catches for 32 yards from Wilbert, who completed 17 passes for 164 yards. FAU falls to 0-9 on the season and returns to the field on Saturday, November 19, with a Sun Belt Conference game at Troy University, beginning at 3:30 p.m. FIU improves to 6-4 on the season.Alfred Morris Breaks Career Rushing Mark in Loss at FIUBy Chad BeattieWinter Park, Fla. The stage was set for two longtime rivals to meet in the NCAA Tournament with a script similar to that of the Sunshine State Conference Championship but this time Lynn Universitys mens soccer team got the best of Barry, advancing to the na tional quarterfinals 3-1 in penalty kicks after drawing 1-1 through doubleovertime. Matt DiCerbo came up with three big saves in PKs as the Fighting Knights reach the quarterfinals for the first time since 2005. Marking the third meeting between these two squads in the last three weeks, Lynn (13-42) knocked off the 25thranked Buccaneers 2-0 on October 26th before falling to Barry (12-3-6) in the semifinals of the SSC Championship 7-6 in PKs on November 4th. The Fighting Knights dominated the pace in regulation, outshooting the Bucs 14-4 over the first 90 minutes of play. Lynn finally snapped a scoreless tie at 58:30 when Roberto Cadihle slotted a pass through the defense and Stefan Wolf finished for his second goal of the season. But not more than 30 seconds later Barry scored the equalizer. Taking advantage of an injury to Lynns back line, Connor Randel attacked the left wing, beat LUs defender and ripped a shot near the six-yard box. DiCerbo made the initial save but Randy Taylor was there to tap in the empty-net goal to knot the match at one. Both squads exchanged shots and fouls over the remaining 30 minutes to no avail, sending the game into overtime. In OT, Barry had a couple of chances to pull out the victory, outshooting Lynn 6-1 but DiCerbo again came up big with two more saves. The redshirt junior out of Boca Raton, Fla., was even more clutch heading into the penalty kick shootout. DiCerbo stopped Barrys first two shots while Harald Gra cholski and Julian Halder buried their attempts to put Lynn on top 2-0. A goal by Marc Ra fols cut the lead to 2-1, breathing new life into the Buccaneers but DiCerbo sucked away that air with a kick save on Gee Oliveiras shot. Johnny Mertl then knocked in the final penalty kick to advance the Blue & White to the quarterfinals.Lynns Men Soccer Eliminates Barry; Reaches NCAA Quarternals

Berger, who will remain a physical education teacher at Spanish River, informed the schools administration of his decision Monday morning. He cited a need to spend more time with his elderly mother and 5-year-old son. [In] coaching, you need a guy who spends every minute focusing on football. I dont have every minute right now, Berger said. He did not rule out coaching again in the future. Berger led the Sharks to a 4-6 season after going winless in his first two years at the school. The team went 1-19 before he took over prior to the 2009 season. The Sharks won their first three games this year, breaking a 26-game losing streak. Berger leaves with a 4-26 mark at the school. Even when we strug gled, we had the greatest kids in the whole world, he said. I had a lot of fun. I know winning is the name of the game, but we had some special kids. Berger, 48, has a ca reer record of 79-58. He was 75-32 in two stints at Santaluces (19942003, 2007). He was an assistant at Atlantic from 1988-94. Spanish River Athlet ic Director Kevin McEnroe said the school does not currently have a replacement in mind. Right now, we want to get through the banquet and the end-ofthe-season routine first. Then [Principal Will Latson] and I will sit down and see where we want this to go.Spanish River Head Football Coach Ray Berger Resigns TheBocaRatonTribune.com Read

The Lynn University mens basketball team enters the 2011-12 sea son with several new faces and a few familiar ones as well as a steadfast commitment to excellence. From last season, Lynn has big shoes to fill in replacing All-American Chris Hall. Hall graduated last season as a two-time First-Team All-SSC selection. He scored a program-record 1,945 points in his four seasons with the Fighting Knights and is the only repeat All-American in school-history. He also holds the school record with 646 field goals, 249 three-pointers, 404 free throws and points in a single game with 43 at Nova Southeastern on March 4, 2009. As a senior, he led the team in scoring and minutes played. The Knights also lost two players who averaged double-digit scoring in Jimmy Gaskins and Cameron McCallum. Gaskins averaged just under 11 points per game while McCallum tallied 10.6 points per game and a team-high 8.2 rebounds per contest. The senior combo of Josh Garcia and Michel Vidal are expected to lead the Fighting Knights in the 2011-12 season. Garcia averaged 11.2 points a game last year and ranked in the top-10 of the Sunshine State Conference in assists per game with 2.7. Vidal returns to the team after missing last season with a medical redshirt. During his 2009-10 campaign, Vidal posted 8.3 points per game, 11.5 rebounds per game and 62 total blocks, earning SSC Defensive Player of the Y ear honors. With eight letterwinnter lost from the 2010-11 season, coach McMillin has brought in seven newcomers to fill those voids. A junior transfer from Herceg Novi, Montenegro, Slobodan Miljanic could see ample playing time as a 6-7 forward with range from behind the arc. DeMario Fountain, Jeremy Lampkin, and Preye Preboye join Miljanic as fellow transfers to the squad. Fountain, out of South Georgia Technical College, is a 6-foot guard with the ability to play as a two guard or small forward. At 6-foot-4, Lampkin will be a solid changeof-pace guy for coach McMillin if he wants to add size to the lineup at the guard or forward positions. Preboye comes to Lynn from DI Stony Brook University and could be a consistent scorer for the Knights in the paint and help Vidal on the boards as well. In addition to the four transfers, McMillin brought in three freshmen to throw in the mix. Jerrell Oxendine was an early signee to the Lynn program from Crescent City, Fla. Standing at 5-foot-10, Oxendine adds depth and serious quickness to the Fighting Knights back court. T.J. Bullock played youth ball in Europe and has earned a spot on the squad as a walk-on. Brandon Smith marks the final freshman newcomer on the team out of Indianapolis, Ind. In the first exhibition game of the season versus Florida Atlantic, Smith received the starting nod and tallied substantial playing time. Pascal Schuler, Bo Jukic, Colin Gates and Michael Woo represent the final returners to the Fighting Knights and are expected to play key roles as reserves. Lynn enters the 2011-12 season as the fifth-ranked team in the SSC preseason poll. Rollins earned the top ranking followed by Eckerd, Florida Southern and Florida Tech to conclude the top four. Just below the Knights, Barry fell in at number six with Nova Southeastern at seven, Tampa in eighth and Saint Leo ninth.Lynn Mens Basketball Preps for Home Opener

The Marlins also unveiled a new logo, new uniforms and new colors -orange, blue, black and yellow. Players from the Miami-based team sported the new gear with an orange, black, yellow and blue color scheme on the "runway" during a gala event with more than 700 people in attendance, MLB.com reports. A photo of the uniforms was leaked on Twitter before Friday's official unveiling, the Sun Sentinel reports. Rumors of the team's re-branding efforts have been circulating since Miami Marlins transformation complete September. As if a new name, logo and wardrobe weren't enough, the Marlins are gearing up to play in a new stadium, New Marlins Ballpark, which is set to open in March of 2012. When asked who was behind the design decisions, art dealer Loria said, "Most of it was me." He chose the colors mindful of the ocean and South Florida's sunsets, he said. The team is looking to start the season with more than just a new appearance, however. The Miami Marlins are also hoping to recruit big-name players, such as Albert Pujols, who played for the St. Louis Cardinals for 11 seasons, CBS points out. Pujols, whose team won the World Series in October, is now a free agent and reportedly met with team officials in Miami on Friday, the Los Angeles Times reports. Management also has its eye on Jose Reyes, formerly of the New Y ork Mets, and Mark Buehrle, formerly of the Chicago White Sox. The team's first regular-season game is scheduled for April 4 against the Cardinals, according to the MLB schedule. The Marlins previously sported a teal, black and white color scheme. The then-Florida Marlins have won two World Series: their first in 1997 against the Cleveland Indians and again in 2003 against the New Y ork Y ankees.

After one season on the job, Olympic Heights and head coach Travis Johnson have parted ways. The Lions went 3-7 under Johnson this season. Their wins came against Palm Beach Lakes, Forest Hill and Okeechobee, three teams with a combined 4-26 record. Olympic Heights Athletic Director Carla Blefary said Johnsons staff was also dismissed. She said a coaching search would begin immediately and hoped to name a replacement by holiday break. The Administration would like to thank Coach Johnson and his staff for their efforts, but at this time we have decided to go in a different direction in regard to the football program, Blefary said in an email. Johnson was previously a defensive coordinator at Pope John Paul II and assistant at Hialeah High and Jacksonville University. Johnson, cited a lack of support from the administration and said he was pushed out because he was not hired by principal Dave Clark, who took over after Johnson was named coach in May. Johnson was hired by former principal Frank Rodriguez, who left the school to work for the school district as a transformation schools area director. Olympic Heights went from 7-3 in 2010 to 3-7 last season. Over the past several seasons, the Lions lost several players who are now standouts at other schools, including Zach Slafsky, Blake Davis and Kelly Parfitt (American Heritage), Jhavon Williams and Mike Maldonado (Palm Beach Central), C.J. Wilson (Boynton Beach) and Taylor Schnaars (Spanish River).Travis Johnson Out As Olympic Heights Football Coach 561-208-6029 CALL ANYTIMEwww.acmbuildingservices.com

Edition 74By: Matt Pineda The NBA gave the Players Association an ultimatum. Accept their most recent offer, or a reset offer will be their new negotiating stance, a much worse offer. The NBPA chose to discuss and vote on the offer with all the player reps from each team on Monday, and they unanimously voted to reject the offer. Thus, they have decided to dissolve the union from the players, and file a disclaimer of interests against the NBA. This essentially means that effective almost immediately, their lawyers will file a lawsuit against the NBA that they have not been negotiating fairly, and hoping the court system will help them get back to work. What it also means is that this could, and hopefully does drive the owners to give the players the things they need in the new CBA before the lawsuit gets too far. If they NBA loses, they could be in a bad place with the CBA, and lose money to the players. But since this is a lockout, the owners can end it whenever they chose, by allowing the players demands on the system to be included in the CBA. The players have already given 7% back on the BRI which is 350 million a season, more than enough to cover what the NBA claims it is losing. However, Forbes claims that 20 of the 30 NBA teams increased in profit from previous year to today. But the NBA has continued its stance that competitive balance remains their prime goal alongside recovering money. This nearly unrealistic goal, which aims to provide all 30 teams a goal of a championship each season, is not something the NBA can fix. It can try to make ways for it to be as fair as possible, but there are intangibles that they cannot fix. Players dont chose teams based solely on money, but also on owners, coaches, location, etc. Competitive balance is something that very few leagues have achieved. Anyway you look at it, the 2011-12 NBA season is in much more jeopardy of being lost. This doesnt seem to be able to be fixed anytime soon. The players did not decertify the union, so there is still a possibility that a deal could get done for a 50 game season, but its in the hands of the owners. Stern went on ESPNs Sports Center directly after the players union dissolved and essentially put all the blame on Hunter, the Union, and everyone on the other side for rejecting the offer they gave and seriously jeopardizing the 2011-12 season. He was a vicious as he has ever been in talking about the NBPA. He called it immature to do it this late in the game, but then he also said this is what they expected, and filled a lawsuit in preparation for it. Well, Mr. Stern, if you expected it, what does that say about your offer?NBPA Rejects NBAs Oer, Union disbands Unfortunately, the players are the ones who have made the concessions. The only concessions the owners have made, are what they thought the system should look like. They players have made concessions on what the system actually looked like. This NBA is in a bad place. We arent really sure how long this will take, but its ugly. We only hope it gets resolved soon before the game is damaged more than it can recover from.
