When Boca Raton Community Hospital finally opened in June of 1967, the League was ready to provide volunteers and to continue raising funds to support Hospital initiatives. Over the years, Ms. Drummond had maintained a steadfast commitment to the League and played an instrumental role in its growth to more than 1,100 volunteers supporting over 60 departments in the Hospital. Since its inception, the DebbieRand Memorial Service League has contributed more than $28.8 million and an amazing two million volunteer hours to the institution. Gloria Drummonds passion to see something good come out of devastating personal tragedy is one of the most compelling stories our community has ever witnessed, said Debbie Leising, current President of the League. Not only was she the driving force behind the creation of our Hospital, she also established and nurtured the development of one of the largest and most effec tive volunteer service and fundraising organizations in healthcare today. In August of 2010 and to celebrate Glorias 80th, the Hospital changed its name from Boca Raton Community Hospital to Boca Raton Regional Hospital. According to officials, the change was made to better convey the Hospitals growing ca pabilities and footprint as an advanced, tertiary medical center. Ms. Drummond was to be honored at the Hospitals 50th Annual Ball on January 21st, which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the fundraising efforts that resulted in the creation of Boca Raton Community Hospital. All of us are greatly saddened that Gloria will not be with us at that time, said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of Boca Regional. Yet we will need to go no further than a drive on Meadows Road to see the dream, determination and dedication that was Gloria Drummond. Copyright 2011 by The Boca Raton Tribune.

ObituaryThe Boca Raton Tribune Founder of Boca Raton Regional Hospital Passes at 81 First Lady Gloria Drummond Turned Tragedy into Triumph in Creating Important Community AssetBOCA RATON, FL December 11, 2011 Gloria Drummond, who in 1962 began a journey that turned personal tragedy into a community triumph with the founding of Boca Raton Regional Hospital, died on Saturday, December 10th after a prolonged illness. She was 81 years of age. Ms. Drummond, who had been inducted into the Boca Raton Historical Societys Walk of Recognition and was a recipient of the Sun Sentinels Publisher Award, moved from Michigan to Boca Raton with her husband and four children in the 1950s. In April of 1962, her daughter Debra, nine, and son, Randall, three, were poisoned by tainted milk. The children died upon reaching the nearest hospital, ten miles away in Boynton Beach. Both Gloria and her husband, along with many residents of Boca Raton, believed the children could have lived had there been a hospital nearby. Thus began the saga that would culminate in what came to be known as the Miracle on Meadows RoadBoca Raton Community Hospital. Through Glorias steadfast commitment and leadership, she formed the DebbieRand Foundation in memory of their deceased children and to spearhead efforts to establish a hospital in the immediate area. As a fundraising arm, Gloria invited a group of local women to start what would become the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League. Over the next five years, the group would grow from 18 to over 700 members and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through a variety of projects and special events

Is there pride in serving in our military was the topic of the VFW 2011-12 Voice of Democracy contest for high school students. The middle school VFW Patriot Pen topic question was Are you proud of your country. Each year more than 100,000 students compete for scholarships and incentives. Each contestant submitted both a written and recorded patriotic speech. Judges awarded points for originality, content and delivery. VFW Post 10556 rec ognized their high school Voice of Democracy Civil Air Patrol cadet winners. Taking 1st place fifteenyear-old Atlantic Community High School sophomore and Boca Raton Composite Squadron Ca det Commander, Zackery Macdonald was awarded a $500 US Savings Bond. West Boca Raton Community High School junior, Cadet Airman Michael Mannino placed 3rd and took home a $100 US Savings Bond. Mannino researched military surveys as to reasons enlistees join the military and the number one answer was Pride in being able to serve their country. Boca Civil Air Patrol middle school cadets took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places and VFW Post 10556 awarded US Savings Bonds to these teenagers. Cadet Senior Airman Hudson Rickard, received $200 for 1st place, Cadet Airman First Class Daniel Henao $100 for 2nd and Cadet Senior Airman Miller Caldwell $50 for 3rd. Cadet Rickard explained that the military protects our rights. Quoting the Declaration of Independence Cadet Henao echoes that sentiment in his essay, stating I thank this country for letting me live here because I come from Colombia and hoping to become a great citizen. (of the USA) Cadet participants of these contests get the opportunity to read their patriot essays at Veterans Day and Memorial Day events. This year at the Veterans Memorial Park ceremony, twelve year old 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. He further explains, I come from a family with a long line of proud service in the military. My father 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. The squadron also rec ognized veterans at Stratford Court, a Boca Raton senior living community. After presenting the Colors, several cadets were given the opportunity to present their VFW Voice of Democracy speeches. Cadet Staff Sergeant Johann Douglas told the audience, I am currently a cadet in the Civil Air Pa trol and plan to be commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant into the United States Air Force after college. When I do finally put on my uniform and take my oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic I will do so with pride in my heart; just as all the service members past and present have done before me. Cadet Airman First Class Juliana Mora explains that there is pride in serving in the military because you know that you have done better than the rest. You have endured the hardships, the training, and the war. You are also part of something bigger than yourself, and you are placing the well-being of the United States above your personal wants and needs. The audience also heard from 1st place winner Cadet Second Lieutenant Zackery Macdonald. He said, The inspira tion I have taken from my grandfather, who served in World War II and received a purple heart for his valor on D-Day, is something I live my life by. His legacy is a main driving force upon which I live my life and set my goals. His life was a life of pride. His service is a perfect example of the pride that was and still is a vital part of the United States Military. VFW Post 10556 Scholarship Coordinator, Past Post and District 3 Commander Barry Goldin stated, The VFW is extremely interested in promoting patriotism and Americanism among the countrys youth and I was so pleased with the quality and number of submissions the Post received this year. Each of these young people has an impressive resume. They are all outstanding students, leaders and active volunteers in their schools and community.

C.M.0 Managing Editor Associate Editor D Editor Social Media : Software Engineer A lesson in what Hanukkah is all aboutIve written a number of columns recently about the Christmas sea son. Thats the holiday I celebrate and always have. But Hanukkah is very important to most of the Jewish community and I dont mean to do that event a disservice by failing to mention it. I grew up in a very Christian area of the country and never really learned the background of Hanukkah until arriving in South Florida. Actually, I seem to remember a skit on Saturday Night Live years ago when Gilda Radner told the ancient story of the oil and the lamps, and how the lamps remained lit long after the oil should have run out. So, I delved further. Hanukkah this year began on Dec. 9 and ends Dec. 16. Actually, it starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, which coincides with late November-late December on the secular calendar. In Hebrew, the word Hanukkah means dedication. The name reminds us that this holiday commemorates the re-dedication of the holy Temple in Jerusalem following the Jewish victory over the Syrian-Greeks in 165 B.C.E. In 168 B.C.E. the Jewish Temple was seized by Syrian-Greek soldiers and dedicated to the worship of the god Zeus. This upset the Jewish people, but many were afraid to fight back for fear of reprisals. Then in 167 B.C.E. the Syrian-Greek emperor Antiochus made the observance of Juda ism an offense punishable by death. He also ordered all Jews to worship Greek gods. Jewish resistance began in the village of Modiin, near Jerusalem. Greek soldiers forcibly gathered the Jewish villages and told them to bow down to an idol, then eat the flesh of a pig both practices that are forbidden to Jews. A Greek officer ordered Mattathias, a High Priest, to acquiesce to their demands, but Mattathias refused. When another villager stepped forward and offered to cooperate on Mattathias behalf, the High Priest became outraged. He drew his sword and killed the villager, then turned on the Greek officer and killed him too. His five sons and the other villagers then attacked the remaining soldiers, killing all of them. Mattathias and his family went into hiding in the mountains, where other Jews wishing to fight against the Greeks joined them. Eventually they succeeded in retaking their land from the Greeks. These rebels became known as the Mac cabees, or Hasmoneans. Once the Maccabees had regained control they returned to the Temple in Jerusalem. By this time it had been spiritually defiled by being used for the worship of foreign gods and also by practices such as sac rificing swine. Jewish troops were determined to purify the Temple by burning ritual oil in the Temples menorah for eight days. But to their dismay, they discovered that there was only one days worth of oil left in the Temple. They lit the menorah anyway and to their surprise the small amount of oil lasted the full eight days. This is the miracle of the Hanukkah oil that is celebrated every year when Jews light a special menorah known as a Ha nukkiyah for eight days. One candle is lit on the first night of Hanukkah, two on the second, and so on, until eight candles are lit. My sources tell me Hanukkah is one of the less important Jewish holidays. However, Ha nukkah has become much more popular in modern practice because of its proximity to Christmas. Every community has its unique Hanukkah traditions, but there are some that are almost universally practiced. They are: lighting the http:// judaism.about.com/od/ holidays/g/chanukki yah.htm hanukkiyah, spinning the http:// judaism.about.com/od/ holidays/a/dreidel.htm dreidel and http://judaism.about.com/od/ holidays/a/HanukkahFood-Traditions.htm eating fried foods. I have friends who recently moved to the Carolinas, but my wife and I celebrated Hanukkah with them at their home several times. They make wonderful latkes, which we miss terribly and our friends as well. So, we apparently do have a spot in our hearts for Hanukkah. With that in mind, we wish all our Jewish friends a wonderful season.

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 By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. Plan to Excel!Dont look at things as they are and be satisfied. Rather, face them as they can become and do your part to bring that into reality! The same also applies to persons with whom you interact. Who they are now should not be viewed with any finality! They need your encouragement to become all they can be, to excel in all their pursuits, to maximize all their current doings! I once read of an artist that set up a studio on the first floor of a downtown building of some city. One of the first things he noticed, looking out of his window, was a disheveled town vagabond who daily sat on the street across from his studio, as a beg gar. The artist used that man as his first painting project. He actually drew him not as he then looked but as he, the artist, imagined him to be. Upon its completion, he invited the man in, and showed him what he had produced. Not knowing who the subject was, the homeless man inquired of the artist, and was most surprised when told that it was he, himself. His significant reaction was, If thats the man you see, thats the person Ill be! Much that is given to us is not for immediate, personal consumption; most is provided for us to improve: sometimes, for the betterment of the tool or of the situation. Most often, however, it is for our own, personal betterment. Making excellence your personal goal already empowers you to go after what will bring it to pass! Thus, be a greater critic of yourself rather than of others. Realize the areas where you can improve and proceed to take the necessary steps to make it so. You need to try and keep on trying whatever will enable you to be who you can be, and do what you are capable of doing! The very idea that you can accomplish it must become an inward belief and attitude with tangible efforts and visible outcomes, even if it may take time to complete, besides some barriers to overcome. As Samuel Johnson declared in his day, the business of life is to go forward. Preparation for life is a daily, moment by moment activity. New challenges come all the time and we need to know how best to respond to them! As Rich de Vos recommends, You never will discover how far you can go if you dont start doing it. You can confidently leave the results up to God as long as you faithfully do your part! Ultimately, it is only in the path of obedience that you will understand where you are to go, and to go next! The right doors will open for you when you find yourself in the road God designed for you to traverse under His leading and personal care!Leading With WisdomMost CEOs and other top executives of large organizations have access to a wide range of business advisors and teachers. Many of these consultants arrive with the latest business ideas and fads. Fads come and go, however, being replaced by other novel and often short-lived strategies. Left in their wake are confusion and questionable business practices that are not rooted in time-tested wisdom. Wes Cantrell, former CEO over a $14 billion corporation that manufac tured copying machines sold worldwide, had many opportunities to utilize some of these new and innovative ideas. But he chose to take a very different path. Speaking at a recent gathering of business and professional people, Cantrell made a statement some of his listeners might have found surprising that his management style and principles he followed were based on and rooted in the Ten Commandments. Rather than following business practices that seemingly change with the wind, he was able to guide his organization consistently by using commands that have survived thousands of years and countless challenges. As Psalm 119:98-99 teaches, Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me. I have more insight than all my teachers for I meditate on your statutes. The Ten Commandments are presented in two places in the Bibles Old Testament Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21. The first three commandments deal with mankinds relationship with God; the remaining seven offer principles that can be applied to any business setting. For instance, the fourth commandment directs us to observe a Sabbath day. Practically speaking, it reminds us if we work day and night, not pausing for rest and refreshment, we will break down mentally and physically. Hardly any of us would find fault with many of the Ten Commandments. The most controversial, of course, are those requiring worship and obedience to God alone. For atheists and agnostics, that is a great stumbling block. But in the Scriptures, God explains a practical motivation for obeying His rules: Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land that the Lord promised on oath to your forefathers(Deuteronomy 8:1). What if a consultant like those cited above were to arrive at your office and declare with great conviction, If you follow what I tell you, your business will grow and prosper, and you will experience more suc cess than you ever could imagine. Would you not at least pause to consider his recommendations and see how they could fit with your companys mission and culture? The problem, of course, is obvious. Next week, next month or next year someone else will come along and make similar boasts, claiming his or her proposal amounts to the greatest thing since the invention of the wheel. Yes, fads and gimmicks come and go in the business world as well as other realms of society. Unlike those, however, the Ten Commandments have been around for thousands of years and remain rock solid as a consistent, reliable guide for conduct, both personal and professional. Leading an organiza tion requires wisdom. If you want to create a strong advantage over your competition, you would be wise to consider Wes Cantrells advice to study and apply Gods Word, the Bible, to your business as well as your personal life. And the Ten Commandments would be a good place to start. Copyright 2011, Integ rity Resource Center, Inc.

This historic milestone will take place on January 21, 2012 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. Half a century ago, 9-year old Debbie and 3-year old James Randall Drummond were tragically poisoned and died before reaching medical attention 30 minutes away. The small community rallied to build a hospital of its own to ensure that area residents would have ac cess to quality healthcare and life-saving emergency care when they needed it the most. Eighteen passionate and dedicated women joined with Gloria Drummond, who led the effort to raise funds, and formed the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League in 1962. From bake sales and fiestas to a black-tie Ball, the community raised the funds to build a Hospital that would develop into a nationally ranked medical center. Countless individuals have participated in the Hospitals remarkable journey. In celebration of every person who has made the Hospital what it is today, Barbara and Dick Schmidt and the Schmidt Family Foundation have graciously underwritten the Golden Gala, so that every dollar raised will benefit the Patient Care Fund, which support programs, services and technology to enhance patient care at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Honorary Chairs Orrine & Warren S. Orlando and Patricia Thomas will lead the tribute to Ball Honorees: Gloria Drummond, the founder and First Lady of Boca Raton Regional Hospital; Dick Schmidt, chairman of the Board of Trustees and life-long supporter of the Hospital; members of the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League, who have supported and sustained the Hospital for 50 years, and Physician Honorees who were selected by their peers as exemplifying the best in quality, compassionate care: Stephen Babic, M.D., Nicolas Breuer, M.D., Stephen Grabelsky, M.D., Michael Lewis, M.D., Stewart Newman, M.D., Mark Rubenstein, M.D., Alan Saitowitz, M.D., Mark Saltzman, M.D., Da vid Scott, M.D., and Jose Yeguez, M.D. Tickets are $400 per person and includes a sumptuous cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, and dancing to South Floridas best dance band.

Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Boca Police arrest suspect for allegedly stalking 15-year-old girlBOCA RATON -Boca Raton Police arrested on Dec. 6 arrested Aysar Aktimur, 49, of Boca Raton for aggravated stalking of a 15-year-old boy, a police report said. The arrest came as the result of a joint investiga tion with the Palm Beach County School District Police and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The 15 year old victim, a student in West Palm Beach, told officers that every morning she takes the Tri-Rail to school. Around Halloween, the victim noticed a male on the southbound platform, later identified as Aysar Aktimur, staring at her while she waited for the train. She said this happened for several days before Aktimur began smiling at her and when she moved, he would follow her. Several days later, said police, Aktimur began following her when she walked to the nearby Starbucks. The victim said that about two weeks ago, Aktimur started standing on the northbound platform and would stand very close to her until she moved away. Several days later the victim saw Aktimur on the Tri-Rail platform in West Palm Beach. Aktimur followed the victim onto the train and sat in the same car. Aktimur stared at the victim then followed her when she got off the train in Boca Raton. On November 18, Aktimur approached the vic tim on the Tri-Rail platform and tried to give her a small silver object and said, Take it, you wont regret it. The victim refused to take it and immediately reported the incident to a security guard on the train and to School District Police officers. Officers conducted extensive surveillance at the Boca Raton Tri-Rail Sta tion and on December 6, detectives made contact with Aktimur at his residence. After originally denying that he spoke with any underage females, he admitted he behaved more relaxed than he should have, said a police report. Aktimur admitted to staring at the victim, following her, and trying to give her a computer thumb drive. Aktimur gave detectives the thumb drive, which he said contained the second act of Giselle. Aktimur told detectives his attraction to the victim stemmed from his own unfulfilled musical aspirations. Detectives arrested Aktimur and charged him with aggravated stalking of a person under 16 years of age. Anyone with informa tion about this case or any similar circumstances involving this suspect is asked to contact Detective Scott Hanley at (561) 3381344. Aysar Aktimur bocaratontribune.com 561-208-6029Woman killed in single-vehicle crash Dec. 8BOCA RATON The driver of a 1994 Toyota was killed Dec. 8 when her car struck a tree on Federal Highway, said Boca Raton police.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene. The investigation is on-going.

The male suspect snatched the victims purse and ran toward Glades Road. He possibly entered a silver or gray SUV-type vehicle. This suspect is possibly responsible for two thefts that occurred just prior to the robbery in the same area. Anyone with informa tion is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800458-TIPS. School District meets with SEIU reps to bargain new pact Palm Beach County School District officials and representatives of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) recently met to continue negotiating sessions on a new collective bargaining agreement for thousands of school district employees, including bus drivers, cafeteria workers, carpenters and custodians. The focus of the negotiations on both sides has centered on creating a more collaborative team approach to issues that arise in the workplace and analyzing their impact on services and education. This new approach promises a new and different kind of management/labor relationship that stresses responsibility for the community, more worker input, mutual respect and dig nity, and mitigating the worst impacts on both the School Board and employees from the current economic crisis. The current fiscal crisis statewide and the changing nature of public school funding have demanded that traditional collective bargaining must be adjusted to meet the needs and issues being faced in this new climate. The parties rec ognize the need for a new relationship focusing on the preservation of superior public service to the children and citizens of Palm Beach County and in ensuring the quality of work life for employees.

Boca Police Safety TipBoca Raton Police BlotterThe Boca Raton Tribune MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL Q: Were going away for the holidays, should we stop our mail and newspaper delivery? A: Nothing tells a criminal youre not home like a pile of mail and newspapers. A better option would be to have a responsible neighbor pick up the items. By doing so, you put less people on notice that you are away, there will be activity at the home, and the neighbor can check on the security of your home when picking up the mail and newspaper. Crime and safety questions are answered by officers from the Crime Prevention Unit. For more informa tion, visit www.BocaPolice.com. By Steven L. Abrams County Commissioner, District 4The holiday season is upon us. While it is a wonderful time of year, it is also important that we stay alert and be remind ed that not everyones intentions are good during the holidays. The following are some cautionary reminders and general consumer information that will keep you better informed and safe all year round. Parking/Shopping Park in a well-lighted area and lock all doors. Store valuables in the trunk and out of sight. Be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious persons or ac tivity. Ask for assistance from store security to escort you to your vehicle if you dont feel safe. Avoid carrying large amounts of cash or wearing expensive jewelry. Always carry identifi cation with you. Stay in groups (safety in numbers). Retailer Return Policies Be aware of the stores return policy in advance. Florida law does not require businesses to accept merchandise returns. All retailers are required to post their return policies. If no policy is posted, state law allows consumers to return the merchandise within 7 days of the sale with a receipt (unless it is perishable, custom made or removed from its original packaging). Regardless of store policy, merchandise can be returned if a sales person misrepresented the product or it was found to be defective. On-line Purchases Be sure the business is reliable/established (make sure their web site provides detailed information on their location, etc.). Check the Consumer Affairs web site (www. pbcgov.org/consumer) for registered complaints. Be aware of additional shipping costs and under stand the process for returning merchandise. The Federal Trade Commissions Mail or Telephone Order Shopping Rule requires merchants to meet the agreed delivery time for a product or deliver it within 30 days if there is no specific agreed time. If the company cannot meet the timeframe, it must notify the consumer of the new date and provide an option to cancel the order with a full refund. No product substitution is permitted without the consumers permission. I wish you and your family a very happy and safe holiday season. Please contact me if I can be of assistance or if you have any comments and/ or suggestions. I can be contacted at sabrams@ pbcgov.org or at my office at 561-355-2204 (West Palm Beach) or 561-2761220 (Delray Beach).

Happy holidays and best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year! Commissioner Abrams oers reminders for the holidays More cats are being diagnosed with panleukoeniaThere has been an increase in the number of cats and kittens diagnosed with panleukopenia, more commonly called panleuk, throughout Palm Beach County. This unfortunate disease can affect cats young and old. Panleukopenia is a very contagious illness that can be passed on from cat to cat. However, this illness is not a threat to humans. Symptoms to look for include diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, fever and sudden death. If your cat or kitten is displaying any of the above signs or doesnt appear to be feeling well, schedule an appointment with your veterinarian right away. Sadly, some of the cats and kittens at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control (PBCACC) have recently been exposed which is why staff would like to remind you of the importance of keeping your pets up-to-date on all necessary vaccina tions in order to keep them happy and healthy. PBCACC now offers a three-in-one (RCP) vac cination and deworming package for cats/kittens over 8 weeks of age, at a cost of $30. Vaccine packages are offered during regular business hours on a walk-in basis. Talk to your veterinarian about the best protection plan for your pet. Need a veterinarian?

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.Story, photo by Dale M. King BOCA RATON Gloria Drummond made her mark on this history of Boca Raton at perhaps the most tragic time of her life. In 1962, Gloria and Robert Drummonds two young children, Debra and James Randall, were tragically and fatally poisoned. Had medical treatment been closer than 30 minutes away from Boca Raton, the childrens lives may have been saved. After the tears, the Drummonds pulled together the community to raise money for a local hospital. She formed Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League that year with the mission of raising the funds needed to build a medical facility in Boca Raton. Outside consultants were called in who informed the League that Boca Ra ton would never warrant a hospital. Undaunted, the 18 founding League members persevered and used Funds Instead of Flowers as their rallying cry. By 1967, the League had raised $3.5 million and The Miracle on Meadows Road, as the hospital was known, opened with 104 beds on July 17 of that year. It was known as Boca Raton Community Hospital for most of its life. In 2010, officials acknowledged the broader reach of the facility and renamed it Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Gloria Drummond remained active in hospital affairs as her health allowed. She lived alone just east of Mizner Park. All four of her children as well as her husband have passed away. A mural inside the lobby of the hospital shows the four Drummond youngsters. Boca Raton Regional Hospitals clinical teams perform a variety of non-invasive and invasive procedures for the prevention, early detection, and comprehensive treatment plans for patients of all ages. Specialties include: emergency services; oncology; clinical research; cardiology; womens health; ma ternity/NICU; radiology; orthopedics; neuroscience; wound care/ hyperbarics; cardiopulmonary and out-pa tient rehabilitation; and home health. Generous community support has enabled Boca Raton Regional Hospital to maintain its high quality, compassionate medical care for some 40 years. Boca Raton Regional Hospital is a 400-bed not-for-profit health care organization with more than 700 primary and specialty physicians on staff who provide preventative and acute hospital care. The Christine E. Lynn Heart & Vascular Institute opened in 2006, eliminating the need for patients to travel potentially lifethreatening distances to receive comprehensive cardiac care. This was the first time in 22 years that a new openheart program started in Palm Beach County. The Institute has performed over 300 openheart procedures 98 percent off-pump over 2,400 cardiac catheterizations and over 800 angioplasties. The 98,000 square foot Harvey & Phyllis Sandler Pavilion, housing the Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute, opened in November, 2008. The Lynn Cancer Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital has been in operation for 28 years and has developed into one of the largest comprehensive cancer centers in Florida. The hospital held a special birthday party for Gloria Drummond in 2010. During that event held at the Cancer Institute, Christine Lynn announced she was making a $10 million donation in honor of Glorias 80th birthday. A viewing was held at Glick Family Funeral Home at 3600 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton Tuesday and Wednesday. The funeral will be held today (Thursday, Dec. 15) at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Boca Raton.Tribute to Gloria DrummondFunds Instead of Flowers was rallying cry of Boca hospital supporters Gloria Drummond, left, is shown with friends at her 80th birthday party in 2010.Gloria Drummond recalled as icon of our communityBOCA RATON In a solemn address to the City Council on Monday, Mayor Susan Whelchel offered condolences to the family of Gloria Drummond and remembered the woman who fought to build a hospital in Boca Raton nearly 50 years ago as an icon of our community. Drummond passed away Saturday at the age of 81. We will fondly and lovingly remember Gloria Drummond as the absolute stalwart person who worked so hard so that we could have what used to be Boca Raton Community Hospital and is now Boca Raton Regional Hospital, said the mayor. The chief executive echoed comments from other residents and officials following Drummonds death. Barbara Schmidt, who, with husband Richard Schmidt and the Schmidt Foundation, has done considerable work and donation large sums to the hospital, posted a note on Facebook saying: Gloria loved our community; she changed and saved lives and our world is a better place by her having been here. We love you Gloria and we thank you. Charlie Rutherford also wrote a Facebook note saying: Gloria was a Boca legacy lady who played a critical role in Bocas evolution, turning the almost unimaginable tragedy of her childrens loss into the lifesaving Boca Raton Regional Hospital we know today. Rest in peace, Gloria, you did well! Gloria Drummonds passion to see something good come out of devastating personal tragedy is one of the most compelling stories our community has ever witnessed, said Debbie Leising, current president of the Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League. Not only was she the driving force behind the creation of our hospital, she also established and nurtured the development of one of the largest and most effective volunteer service and fundraising organizations in healthcare today. She was to be honored at the hospital ball in January to honor the 50th anniversary of the institution. All of us are greatly saddened that Gloria will not be with us at that time, said Jerry Fedele, president and CEO of Boca Regional. Yet we will need to go no further than a drive on Meadows Road to see the dream, determination and dedication that was Gloria Drummond. The public long ago called Boca Hospital the miracle on Meadows Road.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Denise Righetti Sushi and Sake with Denise @ Yakitori Sake HouseReviewed by Denise Righetti, October 5, 2011 What an amazing time our foodie friends had at Yakitori Sake House, located in Royal Palm Place, Downtown Boca. The owners rolled out the red carpet for us and wowed us with a never-ending flow of tantalizing treats. To begin with, everyone was offered a saki (hot or cold), wine, beer of beverage of their choice. The starters began flowing shortly after and are too many to list here, but I will highlight a few of our favorites: Japanese Snapper Ceviche ($10), finely chopped Japanese snapper marinated overnight with lime, cilantro, tomatoes, and red onions; the Blue Crab Tartar ($9), a crowd pleaser, consisted of real blue crab and avocado mixed with masago and wasabi cream, served with a side of homemade taro chips; Hamachi Jalapenos ($12), Wonderfully fresh hamachi sashimi bundles topped with fresh jalapeno slices. Note, the jalapenos are not at all overpowering, but you can ask for them to be left off if you are concerned about the heat. The presentation of the Osaka Tuna ($12), was just as creative as it was delicious. Raw tuna steak wrapped with seaweed, flash fried, sliced thin, and served with wasabi mayo; Crispy Baby Bok Choy ($6), Chinese greens deep fried and served with garlic soy sauce something that was totally unexpected and an absolute must-have! The next course was an assortment of yakitori grilled Meats, Seafood & Veggies, seasoned to perfection and served on Japanese bamboo skewers. We sampled five different kinds, with the Calamari ($4), Shrimp wrapped with bacon ($4), and the Chicken ($3) being the crowd fa vorites. Next up were an assortment of rolls. They were all good, however, the Little Tuna Tower ($12), one of Yakitoris specialty rolls, was definitely one of my personal favorites.

Osaka Tuna Crispy Baby Bok Choy Blue Crab Tartar Bacon wrapped scallops and grilled chicken YakitoriGeorge Clooney Does the Right Thing in The DescendantsIt was a choice between Martin Scorseses family film Hugo and gorgeous George Clooney goes to Hawaii in The Descendants. Since Fox Searchlight had invited us to Descendants first, and since Beth was driving, we decided to see what Mr. Clooney is up to. The Descendants is a breakthrough for Clooney as an actor, as he has to do more than just be handsome and dashing. Clooneys character of lawyerfather Matt King is in fact not very heroic. His wife is at the hospital in a coma after a boating accident. Matt had been neglect ing his wife before the ac cident. When he collects his sullen teenage daugh ter Alexandra (Shailene Woodley), she informs him her mother had been carrying on an affair. Matts potty-mouthed 10-year-old daughter Scottie (Amara Miller) is a disciplinary problem and is not doing well in school. When Matt learns his wife will never recover, he must tell his girls the truth. That is the setup for a drama with ample dashes of comedy, based upon the 2009 novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, with screenplay by director Alexander Payne, whose last movie Sideways caused quite a stir in 2004. Like Sideways The Descendants is about men behaving badly. Over the course of a family trip to the island of Kauai in search of the man who cuckolded him, Matt gains insight into what a crummy father and husband he has been, and how much everyone resents him. Matt comes from an old Hawaii family that is in part related to Hawai ian royalty. Back in 1860 the family was granted 25,000 pristine acres on Kauai. Now Matts family wants to cash out and sell the land, but as executor of the estate, Matt has the final judgment. Along for the ride at the insistence of Alexandra is her wiseguy boyfriend Sid (Nick Krause), who rubs both Matt and Matts father-in-law (Robert Forster) the wrong way. The philandering lover turns out to be Brian Speer (Matthew Lillard), a smarmy real estate agent who is also involved in the sale of the King land. Speer is a hypocrite of the worse kind: he is a married man with a loving wife (Judy Greer) and two adoring children. Matts relatives arent much better than he. Led by the boozy, blustering Cousin Hugh (Beau Bridges), the clan is prac tically licking their chops over the prospect of newfound, unearned riches. I have a particular interest in Hawaii and its history because my mother and her parents lived there for six years, starting in 1941, during the Hell of World War II. My parents first met there and my sister was born there. Hawaii has some things in common with semi-tropical south Florida; particularly by the way its economy is driven by real estate. The Descendants is ultimately a feel-good movie because characters learn to change and do the right thing. George Clooney did the right thing by choosing this role and proving he really can act.

That might be the reason he lends his name and support to events like the one at Mizner Park that heralds everything green. Called The Wyland Living Green Fair, the recent two-day event was a smorgasbord of everything to save the planet and yourself. Acclaimed marine artist Wyland painted a 50-foot azure blue seafaring mural with the help of local students. There was a water maze, mobile learning center, sustainable kitchen, educa tion tent for children, farmers market, sustainable beer and wine garden (with tastings) and a myriad of vendors with everything from live bees to skinny margaritas. The day was filled with feel good goodies like gra nola made locally from Upfront, luscious baked goods from My Sweet Dolce, Potions in Motion from Jessica Deutsch, electric candles (that looked like real wax ones) from Dcor Solutions and Sprouts from Sharon Quercioli. Health care educator and nutritional chef Dina Lauro had all the answers to healthy eating in a raw vegan way (this is supposed to be a great way to heal and keep sane) and the Sanctuary Plastic Surgery Medical Aesthetic Center was in attendance to help people match their outer and inner beauty. Author and motivational coach Angela Lutin was there with words of encouragement to help others live their best life. She was one part Oprah and one part Dr. Oz with ideals and ideas to motivate even the most rustic of green newbies. Her book Play Big is really a great primer for life in the slower but more meaningful way. Lutin has learned some vital lessons for moving forward and not looking back. And guess what? She is terrific and so is her book. For other couch potatoes who need a little green push, there was another terrific coach-healer at the fair Becca Tebon. She gives classes on and off the beach and has a 90day proven way to lose weight, bring back memory and transform your lifestyle. Tebon does mind mapping, vision boarding, nutrition counseling and helps others find their greener consciousness. Other noteworthy guests were Musical Cares, a nonprofit organization that collects, donates and provides musical instruments to schools. If you have anything musical to donate contact Bronsen Bloom at mailto:email@example.com Another highlight of the fair was spending time with the greenest thumb in the land, Farmer Jay. Jay gave live demonstrations to children on how to grow vegeta bles, and communicate with our most natural of assets. Farmer Jay owns Farmer Jay Pure Organics in Boca and supplies soil and fresh produce without pesticides or synthetic chemicals. The 2011 Wyland Living Green Fair was a terrific community experience that brought everyone together for a better world, better health and an even better awareness of the environment. It was a day of family and fun with common sense ways to protect our most precious commodity Mother Earth. Wyland himself.

The holidays allow us to be our fun and festive selves at every occasion, and making us look the part is an array of wonderful cosmetics that will give us just the right glow. If you have walked through the cosmetic departments, you know that shimmer is big this sea son! From all out golden and silver eyes to touches of peachy glimmer on the cheeks to skin that looks oh so sexy in low lights! One of the biggest trends is silver shimmery shadow paired with black pencil. Definitely an attention-getting look. For something more subtle but equally fanciful, consider shimmery copper shades using the lighter copper color in the corner of the eyes and the darker at the edges. Is classic smoky still your favorite look? Then consider Navy blue this season. And if you want to be super trendy, many women are opting for nearly naked eyes using shadows that are just a shade or two darker than skin tone with brown mascara instead of black. When creating your eye-catching look remember to do your eyes before you make up base! This way you dont have to deal with unintentional sprinkles of color on your cheeks. Curl your lashes and see how you like wanding your mascara brush inward a bit as opposed to out.... many women like the effect it brings of popping the eye open more. Try some white or pinkish hued liner on your inner eye area to look perky and awake no matter the hour. And remember to keep your concealer handy...as the party wears on...dab a little in the corners of your eyes and youll be ready to party some more! Lips are of course the big buzz for the season. All sorts of crimson and cherry red lipsticks are beckoning to be your kiss color! While red is often considered a difficult shade, there are so many options this year from fire engine to light wines that you will surely find the shade you love. So what are some of the hot products for the season? Here are a few to try! For luscious lips: Urban Decay has Stardust Sparkling lip gloss that is simply brilliant. Covergirl offers Na ture Luxe Gloss Balm that offers a sweet and subtle stain. Maybelline New York s Baby Lips replenishing balm keeps the kisses coming! And Armanis Gloss dArmani has a rich sophisticated look and feel that is irresistible. For eyes that pop: Chanels Cream Shadow Illusion D Ombre is a longwear luxurious choice that offers some shades with flecks of glitter. Clinques Lid Smoothie Antioxidant Cream shadow come in great shades and also have caffeine for a perky look! Armanis Eyes to Kill Intense Eye Shadows are dazzling in their sexiness! To top off the holidays select a fragrance that speaks of you! If you are looking for something new, consider Oscar de la Rentas Live in Love! A wonderful wish for everyone for the holidays!!

BusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune BRIO donates $2,700 to Pap Corps from Nov. 21 fundraiserBOCA RATON -Just a week and a half after it opened, BRIO Tuscan Grille at The Shops at Boca Center raised $2,700 during its Make a Difference Monday fundraiser for The Pap Corps, Champions for Cancer Research. BRIO donated a percentage of all of its Nov. 21 food sales, equaling $2,700, to the local non-profit. The Pap Corps supports research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Floridas only university-based cancer center. Were delighted to have raised funds for The Pap Corps so soon after we opened, said Tom Race, general manager of BRIO. In line with BRIOs philosophy of giving back to the community, we plan to do many more fundraisers to help local charities.

County preps for Next Generation 9-1-1 phone systemRecognizing the need to upgrade and improve the existing 9-1-1 telephone system in Palm Beach County, the Department of Public Safety Division of Emergency Management has under taken a major initiative to prepare Palm Beach County for future tech nologies. Palm Beach County is the first county in the state of Florida to imple ment this new Next Generation Capable 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1) telephone system, and one of the first in the nation to implement such a system. The current 30-yearold 9-1-1 telephone system has worked well, but the analog system is unable to support future technologies currently being developed. The new next generation digitalbased system will be able to support new technolo gies and standards as they evolve. These new standards will be able to provide additional resiliency and redundancy in the 9-1-1 system, and the system will be able to support the future needs of the county. The new NG9-1-1 system replaces the current analog network, software and equipment. A few key benefits of the new system include: The NG9-1-1 system will process 9-1-1 calls much faster than the current system, when seconds really count. The new NG9-1-1 system will identify the loca tion of emergency calls from a cell phone within a few feet of the caller. The equipment and networks will be fully redundant. Once all the standards are fully implemented, the system will be capable of processing all types of emergency calls and transporting additional associated data (i.e. texting an emergency call from a cell phone). The process to deliver an emergency call to the correct emergency response agency will be greatly improved. This reduces the possibility of an emergency call going to the wrong location which may require another transfer. Staff will be able to deliver calls and data to the appropriate 9-1-1 centers and other appropriate emergency entities with more accu racy. The funding sources for this countywide project are 100 percent paid through Florida state grants and Florida state 9-1-1 fees paid. No ad valorem taxes have been used to fund this initiative. Eight Public Safety answering points (loca tions where 9-1-1 calls are answered) have currently transitioned to the new NG9-1-1 system. The remaining 12 locations in the county will be transitioned in the coming months. The proposed completion date for full imple mentation of this new NG9-1-1 system is June 2012.

Mr. Gora may be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Artist Max oers the Minimum during Mall VisitI love the Town Center Mall. I dont shop a lot, but when I dothat is where you can find me. Saturday night was one of those times. Presents for my secretary and paralegal were in order. My wife Bonnie was at my side as I am not to be trusted in shopping for womens gifts Earlier in the week a vendor that I use in my law practice had sent me a $100 gift card to The Capitol Grille, one of my favorites when I receive a gift card. The steak was excellent and the bill, plus tip only $72 more than the value of the card. It was the side show that caught our attention. An older couple and a younger, perhaps the older couples son and daughter-in-law, were seated next to our table for the older womans birthday. We are always tolerant of our senior snowbirds from the northeast whose less then dulcet tones oc casionally interrupt our own conversation with complaints of a table location and other restaurant features. We knew that when we came for dinner at a 6 p.m. time, for pre-shopping purposes, we would not be dining, but using our gift card to get into the holiday spirit. We ordered a couple of nice glasses of wine and it was clear the folks next to us were doing the same, except for the condo-blonde mom, who, according to my wife, had ordered a martini. What caught our attention was the refill. When the martini was accomplished the woman took a container out of her designer purse and filled her martini glass with something that looked like a Cosmo. When questioned by her family, her loud reply was that, all of my friends do that. Why should I pay another $15? We settled up and left for shopping at Nordstroms, one of our favorite stores and a good place to buy womens items in our price range. On the way we noticed that one of the malls Art Gallerys featured a personal appearance by Peter Max. While neither of us had any interest in Max or his work, we thought it might be fun to look at the gallerys stock of the brightly colored, popular work of one of the few America artists who has managed to make a good living with marginal work and top notch promotion. (Just our opinions.) Actually seeing this iconic fig ure might be fun as well. As you might know by now I have photogra phy as a hobby and approached Peter with my I-phone camera at the ready. He was less than cooperative. Sticking his hand up between himself and my tiny lens, shouting No, no. I did take a photograph, and I guarantee you I will not publish it in the Tribune, and the photo will not make my website. It dawned on us as we drove home that the subject matter of a large portion of the money made by Peter Max through his sales of paintings and reproductions peddled during his career were of a subject that was owned by us, and by you, through our government; The Statute of Liberty, a small National Park supported by our taxes. Perhaps he forgot. Your Life: Waste, Spend Or Invest It?Practically every day I receive unsolicited mail trying to interest me in some kind of financial investment opportunity. Although wise financial investing is the intelligent thing to do, I have noticed that many people who diligently plan how they will invest their income have never attempted to consider planning for how they will invest their lives. When the time comes, and you arrive at the end of your life, how will YOU determine whether your life was worthwhile? What evaluation criteria are you planning to use? To ask an even more immediate question, how are you investing your life right now? What kind of return or dividend are you expecting to receive from the investment of your life? Realistically, you only have three options when you consider what do with the rest of your life: You can WASTE it. There is countless ways for doing this; we see them by looking around. Many people do absolutely nothing with their lives. They simply exist taking up space and using up air. They make no contribution with their lives. Their hours are consumed by meaningless activity or no activity at all. You can SPEND it. There are many ways to spend away your life. You can give yourself to a ca reer, or a hobby, or an experience, or travel any kind of pursuit that captures your interest and seduces you into devoting much of your time, energy and resources to it. An average individual will spend approximately 29,962 days on this earth. The question for each of us is: On what will we spend those days? You can INVEST it. The Bible teaches the best use for our life on earth is to invest it in something that will outlast it! This involves taking the long-look maintaining a long-range perspective on life. It is interesting how much things can change when you ac quire an eternal perspective. As you might expect, the Bible speaks often about the value and importance of maintaining an eternal perspective on temporal living. Many of the stories Jesus taught dealt with this theme of investment. In Matthew 25:14-30, for instance, He told a story about three men who were given responsibility for their masters property. Two of them invested wisely and were rewarded; the third did not and was disciplined. From biblical stories like these, we see seven principles for investing your life: 1. OWNERSHIP: Every thing I have really belongs to God. All we have is only on loan to me for the time we are on this earth. 2. ALLOCATION: God strategically gives us specific talents and abilities at birth. 3. ACCOUNTABILITY: God expects us to use the talents He has given to us. One day we will give an account to Him of what we did with what He gave us. 4. UTILIZATION: Using our talents to the fullest involves risk, so faith in God is required. 5.MOTIVATION: What prevents us from developing our talents is fear, unwillingness to venture beyond our comfort zone. 6. APPLICATION: If we dont use our talents, we will lose them. 7. COMPENSATION: If we use our talents the way God intends, He will reward us. Romans 2:6 assures us, God will give to each person according to what he has done. 2010, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved.

Friday morning, he announced via Twitter that he would be coming back to the HEAT. Chalmers had the most leverage of any player for the HEAT. Miami desperately needed him as there were very few quality point guards on the market. Many people thought that Chalmers would wait this out, as he is a restricted free agent and could demand some more money. Its unclear what other teams were interested in Chalmers. Mario started Game 6 of the NBA Finals and played very well throughout the playoffs. He will contend for the starting point guard spot for the HEAT and right now has the inside track over rookie Norris Cole. Its unclear if Miami will pursue any other veterans if they are cut, waived, or amnestied. Training camp starts later today, and Ma rio will be in attendance. He was spotted back at the AAA in HEAT gear on Thursday hinting his return. In a series of tweets he revealed he would make his decision by Friday, and then he tweeted, Imma MIAMI HEAT player until they dont want me no more. Lets get this ring. Chalmers is a crucial part to what the HEAT are doing. He provides the defense from the point guard position that they need. But beyond that, Chalmers is a good three-point shooter to help spread the floor for the HEAT. He isnt a perfect fit, but he is a fit.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By Chad Beattie BOCA RATON, Fla. Winners of three straight, Lynn Universitys womens basketball team hopes to make it four before heading into the holiday break. The Shaw University Bears will stand in the way of the Fighting Knights when they take the court at the de Hoernle Sports & Cultural Center on Thursday, December 15, at 5:30 p.m. Florida Memorial was the latest victim of LU as the Blue & White (5-3) downed the Lions 60-44 behind a superb scoring effort from Amanda Schults and Kira Harvey. That duo combined for 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, including 7-for-13 from threepoint range. Charla Nelson-James also logged her third consecutive doubledouble and fourth overall by chipping in 10 points and 12 rebounds. Harvey leads the Fighting Knights with 13 points per game and is followed closely by Marquis Lee at 11.8 points. Nelson-James is averaging nearly a double-double with 10.4 ppg and 9.8 rebounds. The Fighting Knights defense has been at its best in the last three victories, holding opponents to just 48.8 points on 33.1 percent shooting. Lynn has also out-rebounded teams 4036.3 and forced 50 turnovers. Meeting for the first time, Shaw (1-2) began the year as the eighth-ranked team in the country but has since dropped to No.24 following back-to-back losses to Tusculum and Nova Southeastern. Aslea Williams leads the Bears with 16.3 ppg and 13 rpg but is shooting just 38 percent as a post player. Brittany Ransom is second on the squad with 11 ppg on 46.2 percent shooting, including 37.5 percent from downtown. The Bears are allowing opponents to outscore (62-56.7) and out-rebound (47.7-41.0) but have been able to force 10 more turnovers (69-59).The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL PALM BEACH COUNTY Osprey Point GC (561) 482-286812551 Glades Road West Boca Raton All rates are plus tax 11/19/11-12/16/11*W/END & HOLIDAY RATES SLIGHTLY HIGHER *18 Hole Rates with cartBEFORE 12:30pm $45.00 12:30pm 4:00pm $38.25 AFTER 4:00pm $21.00Palm Beach Countys FREQUENT PLAYER CARD 20% OFF golf the rest of the year 10% OFF January-March 2012 Advanced tee times Merchandise specials and more!!

The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL Fighting Knights Hoops Roars Past LionsBy Chad Beattie Despite a slow start which saw eight combined points in the first seven and a half minutes, Lynn Universitys mens basketball team tallied its second-highest point total of the season in a 79-47 victory over Florida Memorial. Five players scored in double-figures with Slobodan Miljanic and Jeremy Lampkin leading the way with 13 points apiece off the bench. Lynn improves to 4-5 overall. Poor shooting and sloppy play plagued both teams following the tip-off. The two squads combined to shoot 2-of-17 from the field with 11 turnovers until Miljanic was able to knock down an open three from the left wing and catapult the Blue & White to a 15-2 run. Lynns 15 points in three minutes more than doubled its total through the first 8:04 and awoke a slumbering offense which owned a 21-7 advantage. A 7-0 run by Florida Memorial cut the LU lead to 21-14 but Josh Garcia halted thoughts of a Lions comeback by draining a three from the top of the key to start another big run. The Knights closed out the half outscoring FMU 20-5, keyed by three Garcia treys, to head into the locker room leading 44-19. There was little let-up in the Blue & Whites second half play as they built up their lead to as many as 40 points. Brandon Smith (4of-6 from the field) scored five of his 11 points in the second stanza and was joined in double-figures by Garcias 12 points (4-for-5 three-point range) and Jerrell Oxendines 11 points. Lampkin also led Lynn with seven rebounds and Oxendine notched a team-high four assists. The Fighting Knights shot 47.1 percent from the field, including a seasonbest 56.3 percent from beyond the arc. Defensively, LU was impressive, holding Florida Memorial to a mere 32.1 percent shooting while forcing 27 turnovers and tallying a season-high 16 steals.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.The Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL James Jones to Re-sign with HEATBy: Matt Pineda Miami native James Jones has decided to stay with the HEAT. The 31 year-old Guard-Forward had considerably larger deals out there, but again chose to make a family decision and remain home. Jones deal is said to be around the $1.4 veterans minimum. It is a 3-year contract and all guaranteed. This is a huge pickup for a small price for the HEAT. Jones, who won the All-Star 3-point shootout, is a specialist, and has accepted that role. Jones opted out of his contract to become a free agent, only to sign again with the HEAT. Jones was born and raised in Miami, and went to the University of Miami. What this does for the HEAT is create a world of depth on the wings. The HEAT now with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will be backed up by Mike Miller and Shane Battier, with James Jones also in that rotations. He has ac cepted the fact that his minutes may be rare. For me, Jones said, as I approached last year the same way, there is no one that can do what I do specifically. Everyone calls me a specialist and thats what I am. I consider myself the best asset. The amount of time I play? How many games I play? I cant control that Jones said. The HEAT will need this depth with a condensed schedule. With games being up to 5 nights a week and 5 out of 6 nights, there will be a need for more rest for Wade and LeBron. In addition, the HEAT could have been concerned about Mike Millers stability with the injuries he has continued to deal with. James Jones, Shane Battier, and Mike Miller allow Wade and James not to out-do themselves in the regular season. All three back-up wing players are capable players and will do just fine. This also gives Miami creative lineups. With LeBron and Battier both able to play the Power Forward in certain line-ups, Spoelstra can get creative with how he uses his wing players along with James Jones. Despite all thats happened, James Jones again remains loyal to the HEAT. I took considerably less (money) than what was offer out there, Jones said. But you cant put a price on whats being built in Miami. It came down to stability of the organiza tion and my family being comfortable here. I have a chance to have an impact on a team competing for a championship.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune.By: Rolando Rosa They pulled it off last year. This time? Mississippi State got its revenge. FAU fell to the Bulldogs 75-68, nearly upsetting the #16th ranked team in the country for the second year in a row after defeating them last season at the Humphrey Coliseum. Despite 20 points off the bench from Ray Taylor, FAU could not hang on, losing its sixth game of the season. Poor free throw shooting for the Owls was one of the deciding factors in the loss. FAU shot seven of 18 from the free throw line. Despite taking the lead at 57-56 with 7:34 to go, the Owls missed seven of its last 10 foul shots down the stretch. [If we] make free throws, I think we win the game, said Jarvis. Theres no excuse. Owls guard Ray Taylor, after a 10 assist game against Warner Southern scored 20 points off the bench, to go with 4 assists and 3 steals. Taylor knocked in four of his seven 3-point attempts. Taylor showed flashes of greatness throughout the game, such as his trick pass off the back of an unknowing Bulldogs defender, Dee Bost, that he turned into an easy layup. Taylors play was #2 on Sportscenters top 10 plays of the day. Yet, Taylors ballhandling left Jarvis unimpressed. Better, but still not good enough, Jarvis said of Taylors play tonight. He had two crucial turnovers. He played a very good game, but can play better. FAU got down 19-9 early. The Owls made only three of their first 15 shots, but the team would heat up, cutting the deficit to 32-26 after Ray Taylor scored nine straight points during the first half for FAU. The Bulldogs would close the half on a 7-3 run, taking a 39-29 lead into halftime. The Owls took the lead for the first time at 55-54 as Ray Taylor zipped a pass to Pablo Bertone for a 3-pointer at the top of the key with 9:19 remaining in the game. A 13-2 run capped off by a Pablo Bertone layup from Ray Taylor gave the Owls a 57-56 lead over the Bulldogs with 7:34 to play. Bertone finished the game with 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals. Early in the second half, FAU cut the Bulldogs lead to 41-39 after a Pablo Bertone steal led to a Greg Gantt 3-pointer. Gantt struggled, scoring five points and grabbing just one rebound. Greg Gantt needs to start rebounding better, Jarvis said. One rebound is not acceptable. FAU forward Kore White added 12 points, seven rebounds and a block, yet his inconsistent play this season has his coach befuddled. Jarvis said after the game that White had a good game, something he needs to get out of his big-man every game. The Owls could not take advantage of Bulldogs forward Renardo Sidney picking up his 4th foul with just over five minutes to play, as Dee Bost and Rodney Hood combined to score 10 of the last 12 points of the game for Mississippi State to close out FAU. The Owls 3-point shooting kept the game close, as the team shot nine of 20 from behind the arc. Freshman guard Omari Grier hit two 3-pointers off the bench for FAU. When we had the opportunity to put the nail in the coffin, said Jarvis. We didnt.
